killerisdad said: Where do you draw the line between truth and wild conspiracy theory?

priceofliberty:

Concrete evidence, usually.

Other than that I consider anything to be within the realm of possibility until proven otherwise.

Am I a reptilian program? I mean I don’t know, maybe I’m programmed to think I’m a human

Dear priceofliberty: If I ever get my hands on you in real life, we are going through every philosophical thought exercise I can find.

"Once upon a time, Zhuang Zhou dreamed he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting about happily enjoying himself. He did not know that he was Zhou. Suddenly he awoke, and was palpably Zhou. He did not know whether he was Zhou, who had dreamed of being a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming that he was Zhou."

The DC Police Invent Crimes to Arrest “Likely” Criminals. D.C. police use high-risk stings in which undercover officers recruit people they think are likely to commit armed robberies. 
The D.C. police department is quietly turning to high-risk sting operations in which undercover officers recruit people they think are likely to commit armed robberies. The scenarios dreamed up by law enforcement officials, some involving the lure of liquor and strip clubs, are designed to put violent offenders in jail and to address one of the District’s most persistent and dangerous crimes.

One headline perfectly captures the U.S. media’s Israel problem

Cairo-based photojournalist Mosa’ab Elshamy caught this headline from the Monday edition of the Baltimore Sun that seems to capture Palestinian sympathizers’ frustration with mainstream media coverage of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”

Link 23 Jul 1,100 notes Hamas offers Israel 10 conditions for a 10 year truce»

transhumanisticpanspermia:

standwithpalestine:

• Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border.

• Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths.

• Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people.

• Establishing an international seaport and airport which would be under U.N. supervision.

• Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.

• Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.

• International forces on the borders.

• Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

• Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement.

• Re-establishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

It’s funny how truces put forward by Hamas are declined and largely ignored by MSM but the moment Hamas reject any farcical truces agreed to by Israel (which keep the inhumane blockade on Gaza intact, for example) it’s front page news and you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘HAMAS REJECTED THE TRUCE HAMAS DOESN’T WANT PEACE’. 

And even then, Hamas’s truce demands aren’t even that major. Like, there’s not even a demand for a return to a respectable border. Where’s the “Hamas willing to put aside border dispute for the sake of peace” headline?
