I Need Some Help Here, I’ve Gone Over the Edge.

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

Apparently I have gone over the edge, into an abyss of conspiracy where the devils advocate is just that, a devil.  I can see now that I was somehow born with the programming that has led me into this abyss.  I came of age during the sixties and early seventies when we had the Vietnam war and Civil Rights and the Cold war.  So I suppose I was affected by that in some way.  But evidently there were far many others from that time that were not affected in the same way so it couldn’t have been just that.  Other than that, I’ve lived the “normal” American life with a wife, two kids, a two car garage, a career and of course, a divorce. But I really started toward that abyss about 18 months ago.

That’s when I retired.  I’m fortunate in that respect because I have a pension after a thirty year career.  Of course, then I had lots of time.  I started sitting in front of the computer and learned to Google.  I found a few political websites, the first Huffington Post, then DailyKos.  I started getting into it and enjoyed reading the political stuff.  Then I went to the dark side.  9/11 conspiracy theory stuff, federal reserve conspiracies, antiwar sites, you name it.  It was like getting trapped in the porn section of a major city, not that I would know, I’m just imagining.  

I started reading about the CIA and alternative explanations for the wars we fought.  I read about the Rockefeller Foundation and other organizations and individuals actually controlling the population with subliminal propaganda geared toward keeping the populace barefoot and pregnant.  I read about how the Federal Reserve was founded, who was involved, and history of banking back to the start of the Revolutionary War.  I read about 9/11, 7/7, 7-11 (that was a conspiracy about Slurpies), and can’t get myself to accept the official (government) explanations.  Hell, I even read that the government lied to us once, and you know if they do it once, they might do it again.  

So now here I sit in my dark room, in an abyss of conspiracy.  I can’t read or watch anything in the MSM without immediately wondering what the “real” story is. I see seemingly good news like the revelation from Panetta about CIA lying and wonder why he said that.  No, there must be more to the story.  I honestly can’t tell the difference between Democrats and Republicans!  

I’ll be OK I think.  So far I haven’t fallen completely in where it ruins my daily activities.  I’m just hoping I don’t read about my local Safeway grocery store being owned by Haliburton.

  1. step away from the rhetorizer!

  2. to learn Haliburton owned Safeway. As for parania I used to ridicule my newphew for his crackpot theory’s until I myself unplugged my matix connection and learned yes there really is a secret society called Skull and Bones, where they do kinky tuingas in coffins and stole Geronios head and groom leaders! and yes there is a cult that believes the powerful are chosen by Jesus to cut off their grandma’s heads, and make like Hitler because he was somehow strong for Jesus and power that comes from being chosen. You can’t make this stuff up the real stuff is way crazier and we all just move along and pretend it is crackpot. Good luck on your wild ride over the edge, where you really learn the meaning of surrealism.

  3. I’m just hoping I don’t read about my local Safeway grocery store being owned by Haliburton.  

       

    Just before I left the US, the local Safeway revamped itself totally–new finishings, better, well more upscale food. The works. 10% discount for a whole month–I loaded up. They also installed self checkouts. And gone were a good percentage of the cashiers including the young woman who was a new single mother, that I saw crying in the parking lot just a while before. Not sure if she was crying because she knew what was up, or because she thought she might be there everyday.  

  4. …You sound just fine to me.  Enjoy the ride into the open spaces.

    Not surprising Safeway has done their best to scrub that info from the public knowledge.

    Here’s a link to an old newspaper clipping…

    just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.

    I’ve been there for a while.

    Read the book “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” and it will all make sense.

    No joke.

    There really are two realities, just as there are two realities of, say, the car business.  

    There’s the showroom, where you see the nice, pretty, shiny cars, inviting you to sit and them and drive them around, feel the power!

    Then there’s the place where they mine the fucking iron and slaughter the cows for the leather.  

    Ya know?    And of course there’s the factory.  

    The showroom of America is what most people see.  They don’t even realize there are slaughterhouses and mines and factories behind the colorful flags and the guys in their snappy suits in the big beautiful old buildings.

    And the people in those snappy suits don’t want us to know what goes on back there.   There’s a curtain there on purpose.   There are, indeed, men behind the curtain.

    I’ve become convinced that the President of the United States has about as much power over the country as the President of the Student Body in high school had over the school.

    Which is not much.

  5. Been there, done that, came out the other side.  Whew!  Conspiracy theory websites are now my last resort when I start feeling our politicians are getting just too damned strange.  I can always depend on them to both entertain and bring me back to earth with a thump.  And then sometimes, once in a great while … theeeey’re riiiight … (cue the theme from Jaws).
