    I want to believe it's all bull (meme warfare? 'the dankest exploits'? Really?), but at the same time, Wikileaks is really reputable....not to mention I can kind of see the CIA doing some clowny sh*t like that. It's concerning to say the least.

    So do we all just live in Alex Jones' world now?

    I'm surprised any of this comes as shock to people. Post-Patriot Act, the executive branch acquired insane amounts of surveillance authority it handed down to the agencies below. Even since then, didn't Snowden allude to the same basic concepts?

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not shocked by any means. The CIA has been a threat to the American public since at least the 50s.
    It's just strange to suddenly have all this proof.

    Really makes me wonder what's in the rest of the documents; some of it must be some pretty outlandish stuff.

    When I was a kid I thought the scariest thing was the day computers took over and terminators came for us all. Now I think it is far scarier to put people in charge of the terminators. I think Skynet would do a far better job of governing our world than people ever will.

    But they would actually do what they promise. Without any greed, pride, bias, bribery, threats, or any human weaknesses.


    I think computer technology and processing power has come to the point where it could more efficiently run our society than humans can.

    I am concerned, but also reserving judgment.

    I'm completely unfazed by this to be honest. The CIA has constantly been at the forefront of technological abilities and it would be more surprising to find that they aren't utilizing the fact that most Americans have cameras and microphones with them at almost all times.

    If the CIA wants to collect data on me that's fine...I'm pretty boring :lol:


    I live on this site, do lots of online shopping but no buying lol, I drink, I play golf and watch porn hahaha.... That's literally it.




    Possumkiller, I agree with you on the computers running our government. I won't go into the details as why.

    But what about when you run for office and the tranny gangbang you watched last Sunday is used as blackmail to keep you from running an ideologically opposed campaign? :lol:

    I hate conspiracy theorists but everytime something like this pops up I feel like maybe they aren't so crazy.
