Speaking of Set Up to Fail

Gotta love this latest exhortation from Ted Walter on the NYC-CAN push to get the NYC District Attorney to open an investigation into the collapse of WTC-7. Remember, the prior week they got 133 letters or faxes written and sent. This week?

Thank you and congratulations! Together we finished Week 2 with 217 letters sent to the District Attorney's office.

In Week 3 let's make it our minimum goal to reach 500 letters, and in Week 4, 1000 letters! How do we do it?


My question exactly. Okay, a jump from 133 to 217 is about a 63% increase. That's pretty significant. But what would they need to get in Week 3 to reach their "minimum" goal?

Another 130% increase. And in Week 4 they would need a further 100% boost.

Comedy. Remember Gage's goals to get 1000 "Architects & Entineers"? What did it take him, two years? And most of them are frauds.

Twoofers are funny.

Just wow.

Together we can wake up the District Attorney so that when the time is right he will be ready to prosecute those responsible for the destruction of Building 7.

Yeah, you read that right. The property damage in Building 7 is now more important than the murder victims in Buildings 1 and 2.

Has writing these letters accomplished anything other than a "numbers" statistic?

this is just another thing the troofers are doing so they can have a talking point in a later debate. "Oh yeah? Well, 1000 people sent letters..."

And that's all the troofers want. Talking points, no real accomplishments.

Someone made a point that the troofers are more interested in "getiing back at" or "even with" debunkers than actually getting the science community to take their shit seriously.

Aside from Jon Gold and Bermas who primarily seem to be more interested in "getting media attention by any means possible," even arrest, which then negates any credibility for the very thing they are trying to get attention for.

When have any of them accomplished, well, anything?

In a movement to change peoples' minds, a talking point can indeed be an accomplishment if it gets people thinking. But no amount of talking points or idiotic public stunts is sufficient to create a revolution. Kind of in the same sense that not shitting your pants is an important part of growing up, but hardly sufficient to get you there.

Yet insane bullshit is all the twoooofers™ ever come up with.

Why is that?

No. And it doesn't have to. They're not trying to accomplish anything. They're trying to give their silly little organization a reason to continue existing.

I think, deep down, NYCCAN knows they can't win. So they abandon a campaign that would achieve something if it succeeds, in favor of a stupid and meaningless gesture. Stupid and meaningless gestures only work if you're in Delta Tau Chi.

And that 1,000 number is carefully chosen. It's high enough to require several weeks of flogging the troops, but low enough that it could actually be reached. "Come on, Patriots! We had 133 letters last week! This week let's go for 200! And don't forget to use the ChipIn link!"

And, as we all know, this is the same technique Richard Gage used. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, I must be a 9-11 Truther.

But thinking what? EXACTLY as they do, or in contrary to how they do? It can go either way.

But no amount of talking points or idiotic public stunts is sufficient to create a revolution.

But the troofer honestly believes it WILL create revolution. HOW many times has Dylan Avery said exactly that everytime he was promoting his newest version of Loose Change?

Kind of in the same sense that not shitting your pants is an important part of growing up, but hardly sufficient to get you there.

Heh. Exactly.

My verification word is "antiness"

He I got an idea!

Why don't you clowns organize a counter letter writing campaign to the same DA explaining howwrong our side is.

Let's see you got Bilkerman, Guitar Bill, Sack of Shit, Lazarus Longsky...and TriterDope.

So that's FIVE!!! Five knuckleheads!

Who else you got?

Howwrong...?

There's no need, when they're already ignoring your letters. What are we gonna write? "Hey, you guys are already ignoring the 9/11 troof movement's letter writing campaign. So, I guess that means you don't buy into thier bullshit either. Keep doin' what you're doin, I guess. This letter wasn't really neccessary, but internet tough guy and comment policeman #12394 on screwloosechange.blogspot.com thought he would be making a point by 'daring' us all to do this."

So that's FIVE!!! Five knuckleheads!

You forgot the "Aah aah aah!"

Who else you got?

Everyone else in the world who's not a troofer...

So over 6 billion.

We don't need to bother, crotchrot. You troofers do a great job of discrediting yourselves ever time you open your mouths.

Why don't you clowns scroll up and read what I just fucking said about the letter-writing campaign.

Don't have to.

They already know it's nothing but a bunch of insane bullshit.

Knew it with the first letter they opened.

Well because, anyone who is bright enough and accomplished enough to reach any job of even minor importance is going to be bright enough to know truthers are full of shit. They don't need out help, it's what they call a DUH thing.

Anyone who would entertain the idea of an inside job is going to be by their very nature no one of power or importance. Last one I met in real life was in the lawn care business, what is he going to do? Fuck up my hedge trimming?

Hey,no fair,the Insane Git called me a "pernicious sod"!! That's just way too mean and especially after I invited him (my treat) to a freaking Yankee game,close to the field.Typical Debunker Cult noxiousness.Bummer,dude.

The problem, Arhoolie, is that you're taking comments personally. Or maybe just being sarcastic to make a point. That's an option, too.

Actually, I'll bet those letter totals are cumulative. Which is to say, they didn't get 133 letters the first week and 217 the second week, but rather they got 133 the first week and 84 the second week for a total of 217.

The ArseHooligan whines, "...Hey Bilbo,you sure you didn't breathe in dangerous amounts of Depleted Uranium while playing Nazi over there?"

No doubt, the ArseHooligan brings flesh and blood to the old adage, "...You can learn a lot from a dummy."

No I didn't (and the only ones acting like Nazis were the guys setting off bombs in mosques and marketplaces). What about you with your 3-year combat tour with the special forces, Mr 'A Real Veteran'?
