So the fact that a beseiged British general gave away two blankets infected with smallpox in 1763 makes it acceptable to say that the American Government attempted genocide by giving away smallpox blankets.

You sound biased.

Pointing out someones bias is biased


That's racist.

/If 9/11 wasn't an assault on "symbols of American wealth and power," what the hell was it?


That's like saying the Bolshevik revolution was about outlawing vodka.

yves0010: whizbangthedirtfarmer: barneyfifesbullet: Oliver Stone sounds just like many college professors. Really. Just make shiat up and teach it as fact.

JFK was an entertaining film. The crazy about it was most of the entertainment.

Val Kilmer was Jim Morrison. Too bad they didn't do much with it.

I have yet to meet any college instructors of professors who do this. Just because they say it and you don't agree with it, it doesn't mean it was made up. You just had a hard time understanding a viewpoint that challenged your perspective.

I have met several of these. They are out there. And they do more harm then good.


The only "brush" I had as a student was an economics professor who had a boner for Reaganomics. That said, he never said it was right or better. Most of my students always ask me things like "who are you going to vote for?" or just general political questions. I tell them that, morally, I can't stump in front of them. We can discuss issues and offer opinions, but don't look to me for the answers.

DjangoStonereaver: Orgasmatron138: Donnchadha: I'm looking forward to his history of the Democratic Party coming out soon -- it's called "Back and To The Left"

Boooooooooo

Anyway, if you've seen JFK or The Doors, you already knew that Stone takes MASSIVE liberties with history for drama's sake.

JFK is almost entirely fictionalized, considering that Jim Garrison was a mob bagman who engaged in
his shenanigans to divert attention from his massive corruption and bribe taking.


Did you just compound a conspiracy theory with another conspiracy theory??

This is right up there with "Of *course* we went to the moon... that's where we monitor the aliens!"

heinrich66: I know, Oliver Stone is SO FULL OF shiat because political conspiracies never happen.

Your whole world shows it (as proof).


Political conspiracies happen. Just not the ones Oliver Stone thinks. He's pretty much an indicator that a conspiracy is crap if he believes it.
