I was wondering the same thing Vandluce. My bet is that there is a
battle between the programmed mind and the intuitive heart going on;
an inner conflict that is not easily resolved....psychological
denial!! I watched the Mayor of New York give his speech live on BBC
News 24 and indeed my blood pressure did rise. Michael was right for
warning me not to watch!
Theory: are you protecting a very high income or just letting
current events slide on by without any personal critical review
(except for well meaning posts here that don't follow the debunk
line)? Are you a professional or amateur astronomer (can't remember
though I thought you posted about it in the distant past)?
The second option I think is more likely. It's easier to believe
that 9-11 was carried out by evil invisible terrorists than believe
it was all planned and executed by our own leaders.

all claim? You contribute nothing, risk nothing. You grab one little
line from a post for an attack, the debunk mob provide support by
rushing in and voila: wasteland. Now I kind of like Postman even
taken with bitters, Openminded is cool but still there's Cunningham.
I like Michael too. I just wish he'd me more open.

yours. Why store up "treasure" when you can't take it with you when
you die? I's rather focus on the treasures in my own soul: THE REAL.
