"We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep. The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent.
They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices ...their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness.
We have been lulled into a trance.
They have made us indifferent, to ourselves, to others, we are focused only on our own gain. They are safe as long as they are not discovered ...that is their primary method of survival. Keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated...they are dismantling the sleeping middle class.
More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery." - Television Hacker, They Live
The Biscardi Bigfoot
ITS A FUCKING HOAX! The hicks put an expensive Bigfoot costume (Sasquatch: The Costume, seriously) in a freezer, draped some very clean looking entrails on its stomach, and called it a day. My god if I see this in the news one more time I am going to shit in a NASCAR hat and mail it to these redneck scumfucks. People like you are why legitimate fringe shit gets laughed at despite evidence. Seriously now, the History Channel managed to get an 18" bloody footprint from a sasquatch after it stepped on a board filled with screws (accidentally placed where the creature had ransacked a cabin a few times before), and got DNA evidence from the blood and tissue left behind. Findings? The DNA was tested by two different labs and found to be "Almost great ape DNA< but not exactly". Great ape's have (I could be wrong, either my memory or knowledge of monkey DNA, please forgive) 2 base pair deviations from humans, the sasquatch DNA had one of the two deviations. So whatever left the blood, footprint, and flesh behind on the screws and wood was CLOSER TO HUMANS THAN APES, BUT NOT STILL NOT HUMAN. Did that make the news? Nope. Accredited scientists analyzing the most concrete evidence yet produced that an unknown species of great ape exists in North America gets no press, but two dipshits from the deep south with a Halloween costume in their freezer is front page on CNN/ABC News/MSNBC/FOX News/etc... several times while RUSSIA GOES TO WAR WITH A U.S. ALLY and Pakistan is set to fucking implode over Mussarafs impending impeachment. *sigh*
Unknown underground city discovered in Kansas.
So it was probably constructed in the early to mid 1800's, and abandoned sometime in the early 1900's. Beyond that nobody seems to have any idea about it. There were streets, shops, possibly homes, all constructed underground. Like the Seattle underground, only secret and weird. Even the old timers don't seem to have any idea about it. Those who say they have heard of it claim no information as to who used it or for what.
Truth in Advertising [Thanks Amanda!]
Psychological Warfare operations against the United States were in full swing by the late 1850's, and they continue to this day. Not from an aggressive foreign power attempting to undermine our sovereignty or way of life, no it originates instead from right here at home.
Our Corporate Masters (Sorry, did that sound too crazy? I can never tell) have over the years employed some fairly dastardly tactics ranging from cute kittens, to casual name dropping in generic hip-hop songs, to outright attempts at mind control (subliminal messages, blipverts*, low frequency audio messages).
Where am I going with this? Nowhere really. Just that its kinda fucked up that the same tactics that have been designed for either psychological warfare or mind control are also used to sell us cars and shoes and breast implants.
Also on this subject, its pretty fucked up when for years some crazy people have said the government was broadcasting messages that only they could hear. Nobody of course believes anyone who says that. Why would you? Its insane.

This is the sort of nonsense that would make Orwell turn angry with rage. Big Government, not content to let the masses find their own means of diversion from the crushing banality of the modern world has decided the next generation is going to get a head start. Instead of discovering things like anti-anxiety pills, mood stabilizers, uppers, downers, screamers, laughers all on their own after a phase of difficult teenage angst, they want children on the shit. Ready made customers for the pharmaceutical industry, a nations of pill-popping go-getters before their sneakers hit the carpet of kindergarten.
The best part of all, is its federal standards that will determine if your children need hoped up on government issue happy pills. If you refuse to medicate junior, no problem, he becomes a ward of the state as you are obviously unfit parents. Thats it. You lose your kids, hell, you might even get to do a little time for your trouble. Won't that be nice. Your kid rots his brain in a minimum security federal orphanarium, while you do a nickel in the joint for child abuse. Fantastic!
On the plus side, your kids will be taken care of. I mean sure they will be doped up on anti-psychotics and whatever anti-depressants are in vogue, but at least the will be safe and cared for...
Government allows Big Pharmacy to use UNDERAGE ORPHAN CHILDREN in AIDS drug trials.
That is seriously fucked up. Of course its also nothing new. Experiments were conducted by such nefarious and clandestine groups as the Department of Energy, Department of Defense, the Food and Drug Administration, oh, and the CIA (just throw them in for good measure) on unsuspecting civilians for years. Decades even. We all know about the Tuskegee experiments, but how many of us hear about the experiments that filled mental patients with uranium and radium just to see how long it takes to kill you from the late 1940's till the late 1970's? Or the CIA and their pet mind control experiments (MKULTRA, Project: Artichoke, to name a few) that filled unknowing soldiers with LSD, or broke peoples minds with continuous brain washing techniques to see how effectively they could rewire a persons brain (Ted Kaczynski was a product of such experiments, he sadly volunteered for the extra cash while in college, I wonder if he was considered a success).
The difference these days is outsourcing.
I said a lot about past experiments up there but little about the subject. The actual subject is one of those things that gets my blood boiling. I guess too many comic books have left me with a warped sense of civic responsibility, but picking on defenseless people always pisses me off.
They subjected healthy wards of the state, as well as infected wards of the state, with experimental AIDS treatments. No numbers are being released, so there is no way of knowing how many kids were used or how many of them died. No way of knowing how many healthy kids might have been infected by faulty vaccines. I am all for science, but for christs sake how about a little informed consent? Is that too much to ask?
*Blipverts are a reference to 'Max Headroom'. Although a subliminal ad technique bearing the same name does exist. Funny thing.
"They use their tongues to deceive,
The venom of snakes is under their lips,
Their mouths are full of bitterness and curses,
And in their paths nothing but ruin and misery,
The fear of God is not before their eyes,
They have taken the hearts and minds of our leaders,
They have recruited the rich and the powerful,
And they have blinded us to the truth,
Our human spirit is corrupted,
Why do we worship greed?
Because, outside the limit of our sight, feeding of us,
Perched on top us from birth to death,
Are our owners, our owners,
They have us,
They control us,
They are our masters,
They are all about you, all around you." - Street Preacher, They Live
