quatchi: tudorgurl: The paranoia in this thread is frightening. You all need some help.

Or maybe that's just what you want us to think!

/Not a conspiracy theorist.
//Do have various theories about pirates however.
///A piracy theorist if you will.


Oh, I'm a conspiracy theorist, but my theories revolve around the hypothesis of laziness and apathy.  9/11 was not an inside job involving demolition work, it was the intelligence community and elected officials choosing to walk back anti-terror efforts and cut funding so that something, anything, would get through.  "Strategic incompetence" as the kids say.

Because a conspiracy is not the perfect plot of a cunning chessmaster who knows every action, reaction, angle and vector to a socio-political play.  No, a true conspiracy is someone quietly kicking off a big chaotic and ham-fistedly useful mess and then trusting all the people involved in the mess to start trying to cover IT up as a means of covering their own asses.  It is an entire industry choosing a self-destructive system of extracting wealth from the nation and expecting, as one, despite never talking to each other about it, that the government will bail them out when the time comes.

The real conspiracies are business as usual.

heh, like about the IRS, Benghazi, Verizon, etc.

Still clinging onto that one I see.

does your koolaid include a hypnotic, and forgetful-juice?

What did I forget about the non-scandal that was Benghazi?

Well there's the blaming it on  some video, thing.

Know how I know you have no farking idea whatsoever in the slightest about what constitutes a "scandal"?

You don't have a clue about what's going on.

And you do superspy? I do know erroneously blaming a video for inciting an attack, even if it was willful and intentional deceit, is NOT a scandal. MAYBE the motive behind it COULD be scandalous in some way, but just farking being confused or even lying in that scenario isn't. But since you're so clued in, why don't you share the nefarious motive with the rest of the class?

I take it back. You do seem to have a clue. Study it out.


Much like my dalliance with your mother the other evening, this encounter was odd, confusing and highly unsatisfying.

GeneralJim: MmmmBacon: The GOP will seize onto this death and turn it into Obama's "Vince Foster" moment. Whether it is true or not.

Just for my own curiosity about how to interpret your post, how do you see Vince Foster's death?

How do YOU see Vince Foster's death?

He didn't bleed out where his body was found, so SOMEONE else was involved, even if it was just not wanting a suicide in the White House reported.  Since Hillary was involved, I suspect foul play, of course...

Enjoy your new "conspiracy grey" color!

drunk_bouncnbaloruber:

HighOnCraic: According to conspiracy theorists, Bill Clinton was responsible for the murder of a guy named Gandy Baugh (google "The Clinton Death List").  According to conspiracy theorists, Obama somehow resurrected Mr. Baugh a few years later just so he could murder him a second time (google "The Obama Death List").

Since Obama has some kind of supernatural abilities that we can't understand, it's best to assume that any death can be reasonably attributed to his dark, magical power, even those that occurred before Obama was born.

Trust me, I've studied it out.  Hell, with all the research I've been doing on my computer, I'm surprised the NSA hasn't+++++++++++++++++++++++CARRIER LOST+++++++++++++++++++++++

Obama killed Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley?

/did he also make Harrison do his two hour speech in the rain in March, too?

No, but he left the cake out...

GeneralJim: He didn't bleed out where his body was found,


Ken Starr himself  investigated the Foster allegations, the third such investigation if anyone is counting and even that guy's three year investigation found no evidence that the body had been moved or that Foster was drugged or intoxicated or anything other than it was a clear cut suicide by a man who'd visited his doctor the day before to discuss his deepening depression.

But it's still real to you, dammit?

Yep. Keep on defending that NSA horsesh*t. Tell us more about how you love it.

If you believe that a government panel finding no problems means one is innocent, talk with Jerry Sandusky -- he was cleared of all charges several times. Successful whitewashes look exactly the same. Are you really still trusting the government?

I love intellectual discussion, like "lol wut" and "yo mamma."   But, hey, no worries....   I'm always willing to help the slower farkers.  As has been mentioned in this thread already, it's difficult to trust the government when it's investigating the government, or Penn State investigating Penn State, or the police department investigating the police department... See a pattern here?

yup.

Every time you type something, it's nonsensical.

When an investigative journalist dies, it gives them the opportunity to publish a posthumous story by the guy and he won't have to be questioned about it. All the innuendo of their wildest dreams can find an audience with this opportunity.

Going to be hard to question him...  Anton Fullerton is dead, you know.

You can tell how scared people are of their government, publicly speaking about the government killing people on a medium that has every word recorded.

That would be his employer. Could be his usual employer and it could be a supposed freelance employer.
