Do you dispute that shills exist? That corporations and governments are actively paying people to pollute public forums? If I find out that a poster is a shill, does it not somewhat become a helpful, healthy goal to inform others?

I get what you're saying about wanting to cease the logical fallacies. But the evidence (government manuals, testimonials) that people are being paid to divert discussion exists. So, what do you think should be done about it?

Comment There's no water on Mars; there's no "Mars"! (Score -1, Offtopic) 206

It's a light on the firmament, it's not a real place we can travel to. They knew this in the late 50s when they banned travel to Antarctica (it's "the edge"), and also did "Operation Fishbowl" where the US and Russia launched many nuclear bombs into the sky -- to test the firmament.

Some will mock and downvote this. Others know that during the end times there will be a great deception -- and the shape of the world we're standing on is a part of it.

For those interested in the truth, Dr. Samuel Rowbotham wrote about this more than a century ago, so his writing is available online for free (nothing after 1923 will ever enter the public domain, thanks to Disney):

I'm not sure how to interpret this, but here goes: I see no evidence that the AC was being aggressive or moronic, so I'm fairly certain that you are in agreement with me, that circletimessquare is overly rude and demeaning to others, when it loftily decides that others require rude and demeaning treatment.

Are you not aware of the Iranian diplomat's daughter who pretended to be someone else and pretended to have knowledge of babies being ripped out of incubators and left on the floor to die? Her words started a war in which people died. Children of diplomats have been used for evil purposes. The AC suggested this might be happening in this case, and you feel that is deserving of disrespect?

We must have differing definitions of "respect".

Comment Fake NASA continues to fake (Score 1) 58

And, the fact that they Photoshopped Disney's Pluto into the Photoshopped image of the fake planet, also accounts for their budget excesses, as now they not only need to pay Adobe, they also need to pay royalties to Disney.

Between that and the "SEX" in the clouds in the latest image of the round Earth (which must be a lie, since Neil deGrasse Tyson now says the Earth is "pear-shaped" in an attempt to account for the extra land found in the southern regions -- it can't be both pear-shaped, and round in past images!), I am really surprised that NASA continues to fool millions.

If not, then they have no say over your non-harming actions -- just as Walmart cannot fine me for violating their internal policies, but they can fine their workers. If you harm someone, then you're going to face consequences, whether through Common Law, or through vigilantism.

But, they don't want anybody to understand that their rules only apply to their employees. Which is why they crack down on people distributing FIJA fliers (from -- note that they take Bitcoin donations now!) outside of courthouses.

The Constitution guarantees a freedom of expression in the first amendment. It does not say, "This amendment is inferior to NSA letters"; it says, and I quote, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The existence of "government classified information" precisely indicates the existence of "government conspiracies." A conspiracy is when two or more people work together, when one or more other people don't know about it. A surprise party is a benign form of conspiracy. Malicious forms include the mafia, the Patriot Act, etc.

Now, were I in his position, would I speak freely? That's a difficult one; I like my freedom, but then again I'm a shard of light and I'll return to the Creator so it doesn't really matter what happens to this corpse. Still, I avoid pain.

So I doubt we'll ever detect life "up there". Which is only in one direction, up; see my signature. I have tested moonlight and it makes things colder (i.e., it was warmer in the shade of the moonlight), so it's definitely not reflected sunlight. If it's not reflected sunlight? Well, then, we need to recognize our preconceptions and test and verify them.

Comment "Fat Jew", huh? Windows 10 to the rescue! (Score 1) 128

Windows 10's "telemetry" will send everything you type to Microsoft-controlled servers. Jim Stone speculates that "the tribe" is using this as a method to obtain everything everyone writes, to use for their purposes.

To now see a story about a "Fat Jew" who is stealing other people's jokes -- he could have saved a lot of his time and effort if he just subscribed to Microsoft's offering to the tribe.
