old video. (30 years).

seriously though. i'm starting to believe in the 2012 prophecies if we don't stand up for our rights.

I enjoyed the movie, proves a valid point to a greater extent in our current era compared to when it was created.


And yes, we are fucked.

put this together after reading for a bit... no idea of whether it's all true or not, didn't spend the time to go and verify. it seemed good enough, and even then, it doesn't matter. that's not what matters.


Housing crisis! War in Iraq! War in Afghanistan! War in Iran! 200 dollar oil, 5 dollar gas, rice shortages, eggs - doubling in price, predatory student loans, the Patriot Act, the list goes on forever. No need for warrants, no need for permission, who we can hire, who we can fire, what identification I need to be carrying around with me, where I can exercise my rights, where I can speek freely, when I can get due process.

All of those things and much more are SHOVED into my face everywhere I go with billion dollar ad budgets. Politicians with promises that everyone seems to know they can't keep. Bills that our government can't pay without mortaging our future - and even THEN can't pay them.

And all the while we've become more and more complacent. Even now you're thinking "Who is this nutjob screaming from over there?" Or "He's dillusional!" Or even worse, you're thinking, "Let's get out of here before the police show up!" Does that statement ring a bell?

Do you feel safer when there are police around? Or are you like me and think, "OH, I'd better be on my best behavior?" The United States puts as many people in prison as any self respecting communist or facist government. Does that make you feel safer at night?

Do you just want me to shut up, so you can go to class and learn more, or to your dorm or house or apartment and study? Do you want me to let you get back to work so you can pay next month's bills? Just leave me alone where I am! Just let me be at peace! Well, I'm not going to leave you alone.

I want you to stand up and start thinking. I want you to really think about what's going on around us. I want you to reject what you've been given and demand more. The United States dreamt of becoming the closest to a free society since the dawn of time. Whatever happened to that? Are we going to let it slip away in the name of security?

The nice thing is I don't need to stand here and come up with great speeches. Everything I want to say has been said. It's just out there waiting for you to remember. And if you refuse to remember, I'll remind you, as many times as it takes. "Give me liberty or give me death!" "He who gives up freedom for security, loses both!" And for God's sake, don't forget our Texan ancestors, "Don't tread on me!" or "COME AND TAKE IT"

I want you to stand up and get mad. I want you to take a firm grip of yourself or the person next to you and tell them that you're MAD. "Damn it to hell! I'm MAD, and I REFUSE to accept what's being given to me!"

I wouldn't propose to tell you to call your senator or write your representative. It's too late to go register to vote. That option passed a long time ago. I wouldn't even be able to tell you what to say or what to write, so it doesn't even matter.

I don't want you to do anything right now except STOP AND GET MAD. This is the first step!

REFUSE WHAT'S BEING OFFEREND AND DEMAND MORE.

take what you want from it or don't.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We are all fucked, it is all going to hell bla bla bla.

It is not so much the case that this is not true, it is rather the often neglected point that we have always been fucked and on the way to hell, and right now it has rarely ever been better, and anyone who thinks otherwise has a sadly narrow and shortsighted view of history.


...IMHO :cool:

How absolutely American of all of you. "I know we're all screwed, I'll do something about it after I finish bitching."

Posting on an forum on the internet won't get shit done. We need protests and riots, violent uprising against our government to demand what we want. Don't like the War in Iraq? Get organized! Don't like the blatant fact that our government is owned by big businesses? Get organized! Rallying and getting organized is so much easier with the internet now. America has been made much too docile, though. "The next President will take care of all this, I'm sure of it." This is the logic we've been going under.

We need change, damn it. Come July 25th 2009, I'm going to help our nation change.

There was never an actual prediction by the mayans saying 2012 is the end of the world. It was actually a prediction saying there will be a change in the world as it enters its 13th cycle. I will post the link I found later when I am on my computer.

the 13th astrological age that has been recorded (the age of aquarius) starts around 2600. the hindi religion says there have been 11 ages in the past, and this is our 12th. i think. throwing this off the cuff here though.

I think the mayan starts over on december 21 2012 at 11:11 am GST. it doesn't end, but it's like an odomoter that restarts at 00000 the mile after 99999. Y2K part 2, imo. we're fucked.

Would someone please tell me what the 2012 deal is? At first i thought it was the meteor thing that was on the History channel but then i remembered that in 2012 is when it misses and it comes back to hit us in 2036. Is it the Mayan callender thing? I don't really understand what that is though. Someone please explain
