    A good hour after I saw where Jerusalem Post online reported it, Fox news is finally reporting on it. I was beginning to wonder what the heck. Guess it's not as instantaneous as I expected.

    How am I being manipulated? If the oil fields of the middle East are set on fire in a major conflagration, our Reliance on oil will gobsmack us. And in the middle of winter too. So I keep an eye on tensions there. Are you saying The Jerusalem Post online reporting that 100 missiles were lobbed at them was sneaky jews trying to manipulate me?

    You are so smug and arrogant bbryd. You can handle the real news, and you have the real news, but no one else can handle it so you don't post or share it because no one can handle the truth? Rilly? You are too funny.

    I don't always understand what you are trying to convey so I sort of just address what parts I think I may have understood.

    Yes, we send money to terrorists with every barrel of oil we buy. Yes, we should be using our own resources, but I don't control that, the government does. And I'm under no illusion that I control the government. The beast has grown into a big lunch money stealing bully and for anyone who says they're free, stop giving 30% of your pay to them and see how true that assertion is.

    As for me parroting the MSM, you need to read what I wrote more carefully. Bombs were flying. So I said, oh no, bombs are flying. If the president were shot and I said, oh no, the president was shot, would that also be parroting the MSM and you would graciously point out my error? I can't help that it was reported and first seen by me on JP online. But if bombs are flying anywhere on the planet, I might mention it to others. Would you rather think I should talk about my hemmorhoids?

    You're a nice guy but sometimes you assume you know everything about everyone, you idjit.

    No need to scrub anything. I do desire that you could maybe have a conversation that is more an exchange of thoughts and opinions rather than a...sneer of contempt. But I imagine you are young and will get over it. :p

    Well, you scrubbed it anyway. Might confuse anyone who comes in now, but it's okay. If you want to remove what you wrote, you have that right. Have a good night. I'll see you around.

    ah, i'm not in that we wadr
    well, i guess they try anyway, yes, but you are legally allowed to go your own way too, your car can run on Natgas too, etc
    i wholeheartedly endorse this, i haven't paid income tax for years, and i don't owe any (aside from an old penalty that i need to clear up mainly for my conscience's sake).

    no, you are right there, i should have left well enough alone @ "you are being manipulated" as it was so apparent where your pov was originating from anyway, and after all you are allowed to receive impressions from whatever quarter you decide to give your attn to, you are right. A better reply might have been "naturally bombs are flying now, that was the whole point" or something along those lines

    I think you have to be reading an awful lot into a remark if you say it is obvious where someone's pov is coming from after they say: things are heating up in Israel again. Rockets being fired. Lots of them.

    You are a nice enough guy bbyrd, but you hop up to a high place and then make pronouncements of who people are, what their motivations are, what things they're blind to, where they are wrong in their heart, and many other things. You're focus is always on trying to "improve" others. It's never on yourself.

    Out of curiosity, why don't you pay taxes? I am quite poor most of the time and I pay taxes on the years when I inch above what they call the poverty threshold. So if the reason is that threshold, no one will fault you.

    By the way, if you're not "in that," then I'm assuming you don't use electricity or heat and do not buy any food that has been delivered by a truck, not even a tube of toothpaste. Because the price you pay includes a built in fee for the cost to move the tube of toothpaste via oil and gas. So who is deceived on the matter of "I'm not in that, wadr."
