I like good ol' fashioned common sense...in a time where everything seems to pass us by in a whirlwind.
Things that don't add up = Things that don't add up. You can spin them as much as you want. But, at the end of the day...the average person living on the planet has to ask themself: "Is that true? Is it even plausible? Could there be any variables that are also believeable?"
Take for instance: WTC # 7 going down just like the Twin Towers did, The fact that one shooter shot JFK, How about the fact that there always seems to be one fall guy in the JFK, MLK, and RFK shootings (sounds like a small pattern), Hitler killed himself in a bunker (and supposedly, Some Nazi subs were never accounted for - could he have easily slipped away? ), Patton died from injuries of a car wreck in Paris, same as Lady Di (Is this a tactic to keep certain people quiet permanently?), Tesla's ideas (that he called very easy to produce) were all disputed, Washington DC being laid out in the shape of a Masonic symbol and a Masonic Temple is only blocks away from the White House, UFO sightings inceasing with man's growing expansion of Air and Space travel, etc. (These are just off the top of my head...and make me go "HHHmmm"?)
You get the picture...At what point is some hogwash...just simply hogwash? Is there some points that you say..."Ok, that could happen"...and some other points that you go: "Hey, wait...Something just doesn't add up about that"?
We Americans love a good story, we have great imaginations. Perhaps there are some truths within some cospiracy theories. But most are just not plausible. Lets just take one. Conspiracy therorists believe President Bush orchestrated 911, Let me just say this. If president Bush was that smart to pull that off, he would not be going down as a very Incompetent President
Could it be that 100% of Conspiracy Theories are all false? - of course it's possible, but then again, Could it be that 99% of everything anyone says about anything is 'tinged with falsities?
Could it be that 100% of Conspiracy Theories are all false? No.
Precisely...then where there is smoke...there is bound to be at least a little fire!
Hey AE...See smart minds think the same! I mean...right? So much stuff now falls into the category of "Conspiracy Theories" that I'm beginning to think that some of those "theories" are hitting closer and closer to the mark! Have a good one (as in day) !
Not sure I like this forum format, and with that being said. If all conspiracy theories are false, that would mean that NOBODY is doing anything sneaky, and one thing you can count on, is that people are sneaky. This actually points up why conspiracy charges in a court of law are extremely hard to prove.
"You get the picture...At what point is some hogwash...just simply hogwash?" Many conspiracy theories are generated by the powers that be, for the purpose of giving
inquiring minds distractions, to divert them from the real conspiracies.
It's certainly possible all conspiracy theories have SOME truth to them. After all, there have been repeated, proven incidents where all gov'ts have lied or tried to cover up something. So, why not banking institutions, the UN, French aristocracy, the Masons (just naming a few institutions that are common targets of conspiracy theorists). OH yeah, and NASA also!
All crime involving 2 or more people is a conspiracy, if it must be kept secret to avoid detection. Conspiracy then might be whatever is defined as crime kept secret.
Personally, I think conspiracy theories are a conspiracy!
"Personally, I think conspiracy theories are a conspiracy!" The conspiracy is: that is what they want you to think.
I like the ones that are conspiracy theories, then turn out to be true.
It makes you wonder which one is next....
The USA is an empire that can no longer afford itself. Is that a conspiracy theory?
Unfortunately, that is not a theory. It is a reality the morons in Washington have not been able to visualize as of yet.
That may be a simple case of economics - no conspiracy required!
"President Bush orchestrated 911"
I agree - he is too dumb. It was Cheney the war room at the pentagon and who was running half to a dozen false flag operations as fake attacks on America such that the flight didn't know what was what.
Boy - did Cheney in by AL-Quida.
John Lennon Theory:
I believe everything until proven otherwise.
Birther conpsiracy; proven False
9/11 truther conspiracies?; not by a long-shot.
Here's why phony cons keep going on and on and on and on and on:

The Koch brothers are launching a recruiting blitz on Facebook for maintaining the plutocracy.
In the last few days, I have encountered endless paid ads in the right-hand column of Facebook for a program called "Liberty at Work." "Looking for Work?" the ad asks. It then describes positions throughout the country for advancing "conservative and libertarian" causes."
Code: SMEAR Obama!!!
let's guess shall we?
Not born here
hates white people
New World Order, Muslim variety
What'd I miss?
OH--Maintain the Plutocracy!!! Yes mam, that's the ticket!
No one has to do anything under "code words" or any conspiracy in order for Obama to be shown as having many of those traits and behaviors, because he's been pretty open about all of them! His words and actions smear his own self.
I know--it's so tragic...a man hating his own mother and grandparents...
Like Hamlet almost.
And imagine!! Eating arrugula!
Why, I'll bet ole Trump never touches anything but Iceberg.
Koch bro's questionaire:
1. Can you lie?
2. Can you be vicious?
3. Do you have no conscience?
2. Bush and Cheney will not testify under oath or in public. This is the single dumbest thing to come out of this agreement. What possible reason could these two have for inserting this demand into the negotiation? Why would the commission want to hear from them at all if they weren't prepared to tell the truth? Given Bush's and Cheney's long and well-documented record of lying their asses off about war in Iraq and the war on terror, wouldn't somebody on the commission be a little concerned that the duo's testimony might be somewhat less than truthful? I mean, I realize that these two guys regard taking an oath the same way vampires regard a crucifix, but come on. Anybody on the commission who is only interested in getting the truth from Bush and Cheney may as well bring along their Gameboys to this hearing.
3. Bush and Cheney will testify simultaneously. That means that each can hear the other's answers, allowing father and son to get their stories straight on the fly. Cheney can lie with the best of them, and hearing Cheney's answers means Bush won't have to remember all of those complicated fabrications. This will invariably lead to Bush's single most popular answer throughout the hearing: "I agree with whatever the vice-president just said." Cheney's recurring phrase will be, "What the president meant to say was . . ." On the other hand, the entertainment value could still be pretty high. I hear Cheney has been practicing, and that Bush may actually answer a couple of questions while Dick drinks a glass of water. Now, that's talent.
Nothing to hide.
I think all these conspiracy theories are just there to divert us from finding out the the real truth about what is going on..... lol

Do you think that Conspiracy Theories are worth investigating further?What is your feeling about the term "Conspiracy Theory"? Does this have a bad connotation and meaning to you?

Who is to blame for conspiracy theories? The ones that reports or exposes them or the ones that conceals activities that get discovered then gets leaked to those that reports or exposes them?

I ask this question to all readers and myself. I ask that everyone who frequents this topic to please reply. Feel free to elaborate and converse. Thank You. Its both for me. I can't remember when I felt more passionate about something. I'm from NYC and a vet, so these theories, especially 911...

Why do so many people fall for pure hyperbolic conjecture, even asinine nonsense such as theNew World Order, FEMA concentration camps, the Illuminati, "hell" recordings, even hell "songs" and "testimony," and other inane conspiracy hyperbole? It totally...
