Conspiracy theories

Conspiracy theories and the theorists are boring.  If often seems that there is a malicious edge to such things as much as there is an obvious desire to change history to meet the needs of the conspiracy nut.  There are conspiracies, but they don’t remain secret for very long because human beings are involved.  Ben Franklin once said that two people can keep a secret; if one of them is dead.  Conspiracy theories evolve from false premises and follow the inevitable false logic derived therefrom.

Did the CIA and the Mafia kill President Kennedy?  Did Franklin Roosevelt ignore warnings and even secretly provoke the Japanese to bomb Pearl Harbor?  Is the Holocaust a figment of Dwight Eisenhower’s imagination (along with about 20,000 GI’s)?  Did 9/11 serve the purpose of George Bush?  Let’s take a look at the last and probably nuttiest theory.

George Bush is constantly derided as an imbecile, a hopeless moron basically unable to tie his own shoes.  This type of rant is heard constantly especially from Democrats and Hollywood Brainiacs.  So let’s ask the question “If George is so stupid how did he fool so many people?” the answer is simple, first of all he is smarter than most of his critics and he didn’t have to fool anyone; the Saudi’s attacked the United States on 9/11/2001.  If there is a valid theory of conspiracy it begins after the attack not before.

It is a conspiracy of silence not commission.  The planes that hit the pentagon, the world trade center, and the ground in Pennsylvania were not under the control of the US.  In fact they really did exist, it is possible to make a cell phone call from 30,000 feet or more, the 18,000 degree fire did collapse the building, it came down as it went up floor by floor, the so-called secondary explosions were the plastic and metal contents of the offices exploding when seared.

The real conspiracy is the question of why the US and Saudi Arabia are still friends.  Why didn’t we retaliate against them instead of Afghanistan?  It is certain that the Pakistani’s and Saudi’s could arrest Bin Laden immediately if it suited their purposes.

Conspiracy theorists, except this one, are pretty much people with too much time and not enough intelligence to live a reasonable life.
