I'm still amazed at how many people I encounter on these left or rightwing forums who freak when I tell them bin Laden can't be real, because it is absurd that Western intelligence can't track down one six-feet six radical fundamentalist Islamic terrorist with terminal kidney failure. (Nothing in that description that makes him conspicuous, right?)
Freeman, camel-back dialysis machine!! HA, HA, HA, HA!!
You wouldn't believe the sophistic, contrived rebuttals I get -- and they call us conspiracy nuts.
And for some reason, the higher the education level, the stronger the argument. :-?
Riding camel-back with a dialysis machine and traveling through the desert hunkered down in caves!!
Four years later and he's completely disappeared off the radar. No sight of bin laden, but we certainly have SO DAMN INSANE locked up behind bars!!
Seems we captured the wrong man, but all is well on the war on terror!!!
You know, people don't want to believe the government is their enemy.
It's frightening. It takes time to process.
When you have been born into a country that brainwashes you from cradle to grave to believe you are free, suppresses the truth and all of their covert operations against humanity, has re-written history with lies, conditions and mind controls you for all of your life, convinces you that they have your best interest at heart, swallowing and accepting what you and I or any other NUT espouses about THEM strips them of their comfort and replaces it with fear.
People don't want to live in fear of their government. They don't want to feel powerless. So they put the blinders back on!!! Easier to live a lie than to face the truth.
IF you can't trust your government, who can you trust?
