I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
I think conspiracy theories are a lot of fun but I get positively angry with some friends on Facebook who do nothing but post links to conspiracy theories all day. Get a life, people, the government has many more important things to do than fly planes into buildings, bomb marathons and who knows what else. To me these theories are just good fiction, when people take them seriously I begin to wonder about the people and not the theories. Maybe some parts are true but you can't take one little fact and run with it to create a completely new reality.

I hate the ones that people post around saying watch out for this or that. A friend sent me one about not going to a particular shopping centre on a particular leading up to Xmas one year. I wrote back to her saying that she should take it with a grain of salt and that if she did her research she would discover that it was a hoax email. She wrote a very angry email back because she actually believed it. The concensus was that she should never send me emails like that again.

The JFK assassination is the only conspiracy theory I've ever given any credence to, at any rate. Probably because I was so blown away by the Zapruter film.
^^ Wasn't the film suppressed for many years? Just as the Warren Commission findings were proselytized in order to brainwash.

Irony: Everyone says "they" killed Kennedy and thinks there was ZOMG CONSPIRACY when it was a lone crazy, while people think "Booth killed Lincoln" when that was the only US presidential assassination that WAS a conspiracy. (A conspiracy of dunces, yes, Booth would have been better off randomly recruiting people off the street...)
Hogwash re post #50. LHO sure acted but did not act by his lonesome. In fact LHO was a patsy. Jack Ruby took the cleaning-up matter into his own hands.
But yeah, we alls is just gonna believe what we wants to, eh? Don't make any bit of difference by now in fact. As probably doesn't the loads of ink spread (huge publishing industry built) post President's dead flying through-the-air brain matter. More is actually apparently known about and less conspiracy-theorized about Abe Lincoln's death in a less high-falutin' technology age.
