I had a rather... "interesting", let's call it, experience here on GAG just a short while ago. One of my questions was apparently far too much for some people to handle, and they became highly annoyed (one might even say "triggered") by it. I honestly do not know why, because all I did was ask a simple question that I would have thought that anyone with any amount of sense would naturally ask (it was about the choice of aircraft used to bring down the supposed "Chinese spy balloon").
Anyway, for some people this was just a bit too much, and apparently they had never thought to seriously question this whole, extremely suspicious, story. Virtually nothing about it makes much sense, but of course if I point that out to anyone that apparently just means that either A), I'm "unpatriotic", or B) I'm not a Yank, and therefore I'm just "an ignorant foreigner, and shouldn't say anything about this, because I'm not qualified to question the official narrative", or some other such rubbish.
Well, I'm not like that. Never have been, and never will be. Everything should be questioned, especially stories like this that are being given extra coverage by the mainstream media, even though, objectively speaking, it's not really all that much to get excited about. A strange balloon is seen over U. S. airspace. So what? During the 'Cold War' Soviet bombers and other aircraft appeared over U. S. airspace, and they sent over theirs to the USSR. It was common practice then, and everyone on both sides accepted it, but I guess times have changed (a LOT) since, and now people are afraid of their own damn shadows, and so when a "Chinese spy balloon" appears over the horizon, in the minds of some it's time to start shooting.
Anyway, this is what so many were afraid of.
I posted an image of party balloons as a joke, and at least one silly person thought I actually believed a party balloon had been shot down :D

I agree with you.
First, question EVERYTHING.
Second, few stories are more absurd that this one about a balloon. The powers that be pushed the idea on the American people that it was an existential threat. 🤣🤣🤣 What a joke. But the TV watching public are as gullible as children.
Why would the Chinese government send a spy "balloon"? They have satellites and other technology just like us.
Next, they'll be launching a fleet of paper lanterns to attack us.
We spy on China and other countries constantly. Then we act like victims at the thought of anyone but us or our allies doing it. Are we upset that our "good friend" Israel steals more secrets from us than anyone else?
But does anyone use balloons? Seriously? 🤣 No, and it makes no sense for any other country to do so, either.
We have no idea who launched that thing or what it was carrying. Why should we believe that it was a "spy" balloon and not a weather balloon.
The lame-ass fear porn propaganda and the utter stupidity of people astounds me.
So we used a $200million jet that costs millions in fuel and man hours to fly to fire a $400K missile at a fucking balloon? Thank God for all the stalwart and courageous American heroes who protect us from such threats. (sarc.)
In the meantime, out skies are constantly criss-crossed by jets spewing toxic chemicals for the supposed purpose of weather modification and the government is silent. Don't worry. Nothing to see here."
I have no patience for anyone who believes government spokes persons or talking heads in the media.
Exactly. The whole concocted story is just SO totally ridiculous!
Liam, I’m personally hurt by the simple reason you’d side with her and sarcastically thank our brothers.
As I withdraw from this, it seems as you let her get on a sweet side by you.
Do not let her pfp or bio fool you. She is a person who will plant seed of discourse at any chance.
Men are usually conned by the foreign women. This gives me reason to speak more with our men about not being women haters of America. When it comes to what matters.
Americans must stick together- not because we are a “race”
No we are literally the definition of United Nations.
If we become patriots of any country we are choosing favorites
It is here we welcome all
It is here we interracially marry/date/ etc.
Do not be fooled my friend. We have a series of tests we must override.
It’s time American officials work together in every aspect. Every single one.
We are the first ones to want fairness
And the first ones to sacrifice
Others only believe in cowardice and extreme kamikaze behavior with no real cause.
We live and die for others Liam
We must use our logic to aid others as well.
@Rosexøxø. First, I was expressing my own opinions, not "siding" with her. I've been around for a while and know a thing or two about history and the motives of our government. I am very loyal to my country, but not to any political party, politician or administration. We need to be saved from our leaders.
Second, I have no idea what you're talking about.
@Lliam WTF! I read the same opinion you did, and I have no idea what that person is talking about. Maybe it's the new WOKE English? Do we need to get schooled on this new English? I mean, really? Pay no attention to that jerk.
P. S. I think this pink person is really happening a guy in disguise. Probably has several accounts here. I blocked him yesterday because he was acting weird.
Gotta grain of salt to go with their comment?
@Rosexøxø Oh Rose, you are sometimes unintentionally SO funny! :D Look at what you wrote here -
"She is a person who will plant seed of discourse at any chance."
Do you have any idea what the word "discourse" means. It means discussion. :D :*
Well, funnily enough, yes, I want to discuss things here.
@Lliam tbh your views in your opinion seemed to favor her views and side.
You seem in agreement with her questioning.
There is a time and a place for everything.
Questioning our own in the midst of foreigners is not appropriate, but I will not even begin to try to school you or anything with the likes.
@cassie88 do you really think I don’t know my own language.
Thank autocorrect for your comedic relief.
Thank US for relief when you and your country fall to others larger than you.
Thank these men on GaG for pleasuring your basic mind and basic pussy.
You should be very grateful by now…
