Attention Whores and Conspiracy Theorists (But I Repeat Myself)

Maybe this stuff has always been out there, but lately I’ve noticed it getting more and more circulation. Sandy Hook, Chris Dorner, and now the Boston Marathon bombings, are all apparently the work of the US government; orchestrated to bring about the final destruction of the Constitution, and the installment of Obama as ‘President For Life.’ There is always some convoluted bullshit “evidence” put forward, proclaiming itself to be the truth (often easily refuted within 30 seconds with a search engine). Apparently, Alex Jones is now saying that the late Chris Kyle’s company, Craft International, somehow played a role in the Boston bombings, simply because someone claimed to have seen them in photographs of the marathon.

As easily refuted as these things are, they keep spreading. People who I would have thought knew better simply keep spreading the bullshit around, because, “This administration has lied so much I wouldn’t put anything past them,” or, “Even if it is fake, it’s good to wake people up so that they have to be vigilant.” What bullshit. A lie is a lie. A half-truth pointing to a lie is a lie. Someone who lies to you for “good reasons” is still a liar, and a scumbag, to boot.

    so, we are never to question authority? i think i'd rather wade through a heap of supposed conspiracies than carry around the "little red book". but our current admin listening in to everything we do will have the same effect, people will quite speaking their minds and that will suit the current admin, just fine.

    "I am sick and fucking tired of hearing knee-jerk bullshit touted as truth" Amen. Alex Jones problem is that the well is poisoned bringing into question anything he says which require due diligence in every case.
