Danger in Cell Phone La La Land — Swill Bucket Delicacies

April 3rd, 2016

By Shawn Hamilton Lately I’ve encountered a surprising number of people in public who seemed to be talking to themselves. Often when this happens, I assume these folks are talking to me, so I respond in some way as polite custom dictates, only to be ignored–or to receive a disapproving glance for having invaded […]

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

January 18th, 2015

illum

Here’s one that should make JREF* devotees froth at the mouth! We at The Swill Bucket generally keep comments closed to avoid cognitive infiltrators–and sesquipedalian misanthropes–but we thought it would be compassionate (even humorous) to give JREF advocates a chance to vent and hurl crude epithets at the authors –or people and ideas associated with them–in JREFrs’ distinct style of rabid verbal attack they somehow equate with intellectual discourse. However, I expect your typical JREF adherent won’t make it past the first paragraph anyway.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

“A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called 「conspiracy theorists」 are actually more reasonable & sensible than those who are considered conventionalists.

Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.”

‘Rethinking Conspiracy’ Foreign Policy Journal

December 9th, 2014
Comments Off on ‘Rethinking Conspiracy’ Foreign Policy Journal

The terms “conspiracy theorist” and “conspiracy nut” are used frequently to discredit a perceived adversary using emotional rather than logical appeals. It’s important for the sake of true argument that we define the term “conspiracy” and use it appropriately, not as an ad hominem attack on someone whose point of view we don’t share.

According to my Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, the word “conspiracy” derives from the Latin “conspirare,” which means literally “to breathe together” in the sense of agreeing to commit a crime. The primary definition is “planning and acting together secretly, especially for a harmful or unlawful purpose, such as murder or treason.”

It was in this sense that Mark Twain astutely observed, “A conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public.”

VETERAN PLEADS: DO NOT BLINDLY SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE FOR YOUR COUNTRY! Author Publishes WWII Pilot Father’s Legacy and Warning

SACRAMENTO, CA, USA, October 19, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ — SACRAMENTO, 19 October, 2014—The belief that it’s noble to support the nation’s military regardless of circumstances will perhaps always prevail. It’s a seductive patriotic ideal, but over the course of our nation’s history, the US military has been increasingly used to protect the interests of the rich and powerful rather than liberty and justice for all. Journalist Shawn Hamilton has written his new book, Be All You Can Be, as a wake-up call to the nation, using his WWII veteran father’s story as the revelry bugle.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex.”

— Major Ralph E.   Hamilton, 1976

Japanese dock lands on Oregon beach

June 7th, 2012

“A massive dock” that was washed away from a city on Japan’s northeast coast by the devastating March 2011 tsunami landed this week on an Oregon beach. It’s a warning sign that dangerous chunks of debris from that disaster are reaching the Pacific coast of the mainland U.S. much sooner than predicted, The Oregonian reports.

TSA: The dangerous stranger

April 28th, 2012

In this article the girl had just seen a movie about “stranger danger” before she got molested at the airport by TSA thugs. So now I have a cool title (or headline) and just need to write the article. When I was a kid, we had the dangerous stranger, but no TSA. It hadn’t been institutionalized yet.

http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/TSA-defends-pat-down-of-4-year-old-at-Kan-airport-3510587.php

I also enjoyed the fact that TSA has agents helping to boost the drug supply in America. Thanks guys!

TSA screeners charged in LA drug trafficking probe

http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/TSA-screeners-charged-in-LA-drug-trafficking-probe-3509683.php

And in a story becoming increasingly typical in Texas (accolades to Texas for that), The TSA has gotten itself exposed for the power perverts they are by grabbing a legislator’s “junk.” I guess he had to call it junk; he couldn’t say, “He grabbed my dick.”

I would have though, which is why I quit flying. I know I would get into trouble with TSA eventually because, aside from all the funny tricks you could pull, it’s just normal reactions to what they’re doing that would get me arrested. So I just quit dealing with them.

Actually yes, ignorance of the law is an excuse

January 23rd, 2012

By George Sand

(Reprinted with author’s permission from Copblock.org)

There are countless laws. Literally.

Maybe not in the mathematical sense – it is technically possible to count the laws in existence, but based on a colloquial and general use of the term “countless” it is not really feasible for someone to count every law. Just this year, 40,000 laws were passed and are set to go into effect. On the other hand, we rarely hear news about laws being repealed.

President Obama Signs Indefinite Detention Bill Into Law

January 1st, 2012

WASHINGTON – President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law today. The statute contains a sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provision.  While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had “serious reservations” about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use the authorities granted by the NDAA, and would not affect how the law is interpreted by subsequent administrations.  The White House had threatened to veto an earlier version of the NDAA, but reversed course shortly before Congress voted on the final bill.
