    No, not the stupid republicans, these are REAL ones that actually happened.

    Was it necessary to label all Republicans "stupid?" Not that I'm offended, as I'm not Republican. Just asking, why the provocative insult right out of the gate, especially when it has no bearing on what you were posting in the first place. It's as if you made up a thread about conspiracies, for the sole purpose of insulting a bunch of people. Ironically, it is you that seems to have such a penchant for pointing it out when a thread is supposedly out of place. Seems like this thread would belong in the "unprovoked insults" forum, if such a forum existed.

    Sorry if it came out personal. I'm a bit exasperated right now because everywhere I look in the media there are conspiracy theories popping up, and they all seem to be aimed at the Democrats. I'm sure there are an equally stupid lot of conspiracy theorists among the Democrats, they just aren't making so much noise right now. Too much negativity tips me off my wobbly mental perch and on those occasions I tend to shoot from the hip.

    Still, at least we're having a break from faked moon landings ...

    Ah, ok no problem. Thanks for saying. Yes, there are a lot of conspiracy theories being circulated right now. Similar to when Bush won the election vs. Gore. And btw, I'm baffled at how many adults really, truly believe that the moon landing was a hoax.

    Some strongly believe that votes were stolen in favor of Obama. I don't believe one way or the other, but, I do know it's been reported that (a) Certain polling machines in at least NC, KS, and OH had a strange "glitch" where Obama was selected, even though the voter chose Romney, and (b) military absentee ballots were delayed, causing many military voters not to be able to vote.

    There seems to be two different conspiracy theories about Moon landings. One camp believes they were faked because we didn't have the technology or it isn't possible to do. The other camp believes there are alien bases on the Moon and or the Nazis had a Lunar base during WWII, and we go to the Moon all the time as it only takes 45 mins in the secret advanced craft we have.

    How's this for a personal conspiracy theory I have. The Philadelphia experiment really happened, and we discovered that time travel. After that, we moved all time travel experiments underground and made the whole thing above top secret... even the President doesn't know. And guess what... those little grey aliens? They are human beings, after millions of years of evolution. We come here to visit ourselves, in order to try and prevent our race from making some big mistakes.

    Did you ever see the alleged film footage of a grey alien autopsy? Remember that crystalline thing in its frontal lobe? That's our "internet" in the future which is beamed directly and wirelessly into our minds. Can you imagine how such a thing would advance our technology exponentially? A 4 year old kid would know more than Einstein learned in a lifetime.

    Ok, turning the conspiracy theory switch back into the "off" position.

    [a] Any corroboration or evidence of this "it has been reported" stuff or is it just chatter in cyberspace? How many protests or showdowns with polling station staff were there when Republicans saw that their ballot had been cast for Obama? Surely there would have been hullballoos all over the place, all covered by local papers/radio/TV?

    [ b ] You mean this issue: http://www.duffelblog.com/2012/11/military-absentee-ballots-delivered-one-day-late-would-have-swung-election-for-romney/ ?

    Would you say you also "don't believe one way or the other" when it comes to the "when Bush won the election vs. Gore" thing?

    Truth is stranger than fiction.
    Thing is if you believe any of this story you have to believe a whole bunch of other stuff as well.
    We know something strange is going on, but the powers that be certainly dont want the general populace to know what that is. Sometimes they will appear to give way and throw out a bit of revelation. This disformation is then usually used as a new thing ,(book, movie,ideology), to be packaged and labelled for consumption, while the general populace continues to miss the point entirely.

    Pot is legal in 2 states. These pot heads will have the munchies bad. There are no Twinkies to be found.
    Thusly the Zombie Apocalypse will take place.
    You might watch Zombieland. I think it's a documentary.
