I think I can see a pattern from Sentinal - I think he is using a library computer in NYC.

But then I may be seeing things.

Chuck sheen is a plant.

He announced this:


http://s15.invisionfree.com/Loose_Ch...showtopic=4740


Doesn't he know that "Skype" is a government program meant to spy on people's calls.

Somebody should tell him.

Let him prove a negative.

Kinda like what Jesus said: "Some of you'll still be alive when my father's kingdom will come" or something. Yeah, sure.

The thing I like so much about Shatner is that he realized so long ago that it is best not too take ones self to seriously. He is wonderfully self-effacing.

That's disgusting, isn't it? Do they honestly think that the people at CDI can't account for their whereabouts in the months prior to 9/11? CDI is in such demand that as soon as they finish one project, they're flying off to start another. When did they have the time to wire up 200+ floors of explosives at the WTC? I read somewhere that CDI spent 24 days wiring up a 30 story building for implosion (and they only wired the bottom 9 floors). The WTC would have taken a year to do. And that's assuming they had unfettered access to the site 24/7. Take into account that they'd have to sneak around without anyone noticing, not even the cleaning crews at night. It would have taken years.

Their disrespect for authority is apalling. I bet that on the anniversary, they will do something to an officer that will set him off and they will videotape it and cry "Police state! Police state!"

In another thread, someone called US soldiers and Marines serving in Iraq 'mindless killers'. I dare that guy to say that to the face of a soldier coming back from Iraq and see what happens.

Does anyone else see a parallel here with the anti-abortion movement? At the start, it was led by arguably reasonable people. But then they began to argue that a fetus is the same as a human, thus abortion = murder. They probably didn't believe this entirely, but it made for emphatic and dramatic rhetoric. Problem is, less tightly wrapped followers took such statements literally, and started bombing clinics and shooting doctors to stop the "murders."

I wonder if the 9/11 CT movement is heading in the same direction. First you have goofs like Dylan Avery just "asking questions." (That he doesn't take his work very seriously is evidenced by his statement that he doesn't even think Bush should go to jail, despite creating a film that claims he's a mass murderer.) Now LC is attracting a few lost souls, looking for relevance and meaning in their lives. I fear that even as we speak, one or more of them is hatching some wild plan in their fevered mind, one that calls for actual violence against those identified as supporting the 9/11 conspiracy, in the spirit of bringing the person "to justice."

Ahhh read the details:

"Visiting 9/11 activist Jimmy Walter of Reopen911 fame made a presentation to Japanese Parliamentarians in Tokyo "

Does not equal showing it to the Japanese Parliament (sic)

Just some members of the Diet. (aka Parliament)

Not unlike "I showed it to some senators," does not equal "I showed it to the Senate."

They showed it to a Member of Parliament in England, but did not show it to Parliament


The last line is magical thinking:

"The Japanese are now weighing the fact that they fund the US war effort, frauds, lies, and hegemony to the tune of $7Trillion a year and may now cut that funding. That would leave only the Chinese as major funding for the USA efforts at their New World Order"


Watch how the kids react:
"Does anyone have any info as to the UK parliament viewing of LC2
which was supposed to happen on the 14th? "

"It didn't go ahead - but nobody knows why. "



I bet somebody knows why!

Then SqueakyBoom chimes in with:

"Wow, this is incredible news! Anyone know how the Japanese responded? Why wasn't this all over the front pages??? Wake up, MSM!!!

This was the perfect video to show to the Japanese--if anyone knows anything about what an H-bomb would do to a building, it's the Japanese, right?"


Uh, SqueakyBoom the Japanese were not on the receiving end of an H bomb

Read a book kids.

That's the new "in" thing. It's the spoiled-brat, entitlement frame of mind that these kids (and flower-power hippies) all share. I'm still waiting to see a "Rules are bad... they oppress me." bumper sticker start to pop up.

It's scary to know that this mindset is growing in the younger generations.
