Terrorists, Muggers, War Mongers, Dictators, Eugenicists... all scary stuff. Nothing compared to the Greatest threat to Every Single Human: Time. Time doesn’t care. You can borrow it but the loan is small and limited. Time is the only resource that is non renewable when it runs out. So much time sold every day to those who literally buy your time. Tis the reason alarm clocks exist. So much wasted time. Can’t get it back. Use it wisely or use it unwisely. Doesn’t matter. Tis all about memories. Memories of good times.
That's how things are, you won't know you have been here before as you don't know about your last visit....it would really complicate things if you could remember previous lives...if they exist...
It bothers me that I believe it to be likely. :)
Perhaps being near the end of your time, means you're nearer starting your time again...time continues ...there is no end of time..
That’s both interesting and horrifying simultaneously. I don’t want to do it all over again.
New Cat approves of this post.
Thanks Mod. :)
Yes I feel the same way, especially in winter it is always cold and dark. You feel there isn't any time to get things done at all.
If your username is cryptic, as opposed to a straight-out given name, what's behind the name you've chosen to use?
For a couple years I delved into political conspiracy non fiction but it got to be such heavy and depressing reading that I couldn't get to sleep at night - I had to back off.
I've noticed AliceD a few times, lately... she seems to be a nice woman.
Good talking with you. I'll let you get back to your day or night - I know we'll catch-up again at some point ;)
AliceD is one of the toughest guys you will ever meet. Though it’s an easy mistake to make. :)
Was just watching an interview with former US Drug Czar Bill Bennett. Who to this day claims that they were able to “decrease illegal drug use by 50% in the United States”. How the hell did they come up with that statistic?!! Oh.. Ok I get it now.. the US Prison Population increased by more than 50% during the War on Drugs. Making the USA the #1 Country in the World as far as population percentage in prison. They are proud of this?
I have no links to lead you to, but i have read through the years that "the war on drugs" was a complete failure. Billions spent on mostly small time figures. Much of it going after illegal weed. And the harder drugs kept/keep pouring in.
That money would have been far more useful had it been spent on education and rehab for those fighting addiction.
DW, thanks for sharing a bit of your history, and why you're who you are :D
Dreamwalker leaves a nice mental image. I'm glad we got to keep ya :) Do you sometimes go back into your old site?
Grayson passed away a couple years ago. He was the Founder of the site. I considered it home for a few years. Managed to drag AliceD over here. So all worth it. But I do occassionally miss it. Hundreds of thousands of amazing posts are now just in the wind.
Would that make the news at conspiracycafe? I wonder, lol
Nope. :) just found it interesting. :)
My nickname has been Rooster since I was in Nam and the men called me that because they thought I was a crusty old Sergeant and acted like John Wayne in True Grit. At the ripe old age of 21. People still call me that, so that's why I use that name.
So.. Pure Councidence?:
I was always Dreamwalker at Conspiracycafe.net. Everybody called me DW. So DW2 was just easy when I came here a few years ago. :)
**What's the best compliment you could //ever// receive?** //We studied you in College.//
“Huh.. I never realized that..” yup. That’s the best.
When I first joined Amirite it was daunting even though I was on Sodahead which was a massive community. At first I was so frustrated because I made posts and would get 2 or 3 comments on them and to come from making posts with 500 plus comments and 70 plus People on them I was seriously pissed off. I stuck it out and thought of ways to share my posts occasionally and noticed that as members/friends acclimatized to their new surroundings the more activity my posts would receive. I suppose what I've observed on here is the more you put in the more you get back and I am not just talking about post content. I'm talking about my own attitude towards others that I'll admit at times has been sketchy *I'm far from perfect and I'm not afraid to admit that* I know for some it's quality over quantity but for me I want both.
Nobody is perfect. If they were this site and every other site would suck. I value, seek out and explore imperfections. Otherwise polite agreement would be the norm and I’d go insane. :)
Is there a differentiation between "black supremacy" and "black power" relative to one being racist, and the other not being racist? One of the moderators assert that there is such a difference. Can anyone give an example or two of some public figures who would fall into those categories?
“Black Supremacy” kind of ended with the Pharohs. “Black Power” shall eventually occur once we figure out how to manipulate “Dark Matter”. At that point the only people left on Earth will be Chinese. So it doesn’t really matter. :)
If no one joins your posts , then maybe , quite possibly , your attitude sucks. Just my opinion , I am allowed one ya know.
Pfft.. they just haven’t seen the light! Lol.
The mark of a fair man is one who will apply to himself what he expects of others.
Though the mark of an unfair man is one who expects too much of himself. :)
By accepting the gun lobby’s bribes and lies this government has become complacent in the destruction of //our// lives. By pushing its own agenda to curb freedom of press and stifle the free expression of our athletes and our spokespeople it has become destructive of //our// liberty. We hold these truths to be self-evident that when any Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right and Duty of the People to alter or to abolish it. Impeach Trump before it is too late.
The “Gun Lobby” is “We the People”. I’ll leave it at that. :)
Your views on Capital Punishment could be wrong. Amirite?
I do believe in many cases the Death Penalty is too kind.
Probably less than half got caught for drugs. It almost seems more need to be in prison because everyone acts so badly right now.
That’s possible. I just can’t stand it when Politicians throw around ** figures, “We cut illegal drug use by 50%!!” How could they possibly know that? It’s not like they drug tested every US Citizen in 1989 and then again a few years later. Just blatant unfounded **. :)
Congratulations to Rooster and AliceD on becoming moderators. Good luck - I suspect you'll need it. :)
Who the $@“& Let AliceD become a Mod!! Just kidding. Kind of.. Congrats brother. :)
Are caterpillars insane?
I'm still waiting for my own wings to emerge. I don't want to go inside a cocoon, that would be completely insane.
Metamorphosis is creepy. :)
Only certain caterpillars. Typically late transcending. Imagine all your friends managed to somehow transform, grow wings and fly away. At the same time you are still stuck on the ground fighting ants that are the same size as you and Beatles that are the size of school buses. **** yeah you’d go insane! :)
Is there an objective, factual, straightforward, blunt, unvarnished reason and/or motive to open up the Boy Scouts of America to girls?
Boys like girls.. DUH! :)
So.. has anybody actually seen the “Sphero app enabled robotic mini balls”? Seriously thinking about buying a couple. :)
Just picturing playing an elaborate game of Monkey Ball on the kitchen floor. Racing my roommate.
Why is it that when a black man kills a lot of people "it's in his nature" or "Blacks are criminals" but when a white man does the same thing or worse "he must have been a truly troubled individual" ?
All Chinese are Triad members and they smoke opium.
Well.. Duh! :)
Not a whole lot of large heavily armed white gangs in inner cities where most gun violence occurs... just saying. But I will agree they are all mentally disturbed regardless of race.
