WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CONSPIRACY THEORY?

In today's news:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21710.html which says in part:

"In an unusual Sunday briefing at the White House, administration officials said a “public health emergency” is being declared in the United States in order to mobilize maximum resources to combat fears of a global swine-flu pandemic. The term "sounds more severe than it really is," said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who called the measure "standard operating procedure," adding, “I wish we could call it a declaration of emergency preparedness.” The same measures, she said, were taken for the inauguration and in cases of flood and hurricane." ((((((note - I don't understand why she couldn't call it what she wants to call it. She does with other labels))))))

**"Gibbs said "the president's health was never in any danger," when asked about reports that Obama's host on a museum tour in Mexico City died the next day, and had flu-like symptoms."**

Asked if the president’s decision to golf Sunday at Andrews Air Force Base was part of a White House strategy to reassure people, Gibbs chuckled and replied: “I'm not sure I'd draw a DIRECT conclusion.” ((((((( he chuckled???))))))))

**John Brennan, White House homeland-security adviser, said there is “no evidence whatsoever” of bioterrorism.**

Now, I guess it has me wondering what the government would tell us if there WAS evidence whatsoever of bioterrorism.

Which led me to wonder...

What is your favorite conspiracy theory?

And I know we have free speech, but could we maybe this once forego those theories about 9/11 in this particular thread, please? Thank you in advance.

Not sure about conspiracies but seems to be one brewing involving George Soros, GE, and MSNBC http://washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/21/senate-husbands-firm-cashes-in-on-crisis/ and its head and MSNBC. There is certainly "Dirty Politics' with Diane Feinstein and husband Linda

Not real big on conspiracy theories and other Michael Moron type thinking, Linda.

Wasn't my thread, Andy, but I'll take the blame. Watch though GE is all set with the"Green' thing if the carbon tax gets through.Jeffrey Immel took a good company and ran it into the ground but he will be all set when "Green' energy is the thing and as an aside he also owns MSNBC for what that is worth. And.. what defense do you have for Diane and husband?-not a conspiracy just outrigtht crooked- Linda

I'm not blaming anyone, but in general I don't put any faith in conspiracy theories, Linda.

Now the case you cite appears to have some dots that connect - esp the DiFi part. That's different.

The "CLASSIC", of course, is the JFK assassination-been so long ago now most people don't care if they were even born but the Oswald lone shooter thing was preposterous then and preposterous now-Linda

Did anyone else see and enjoy the mythbusters program on the moon landing.
We all know people who think it was rigged because of eg the flag waving --and there is no wind on the moon.
The mythbusters set up a flag in a vacuum and touched it -- it kept waving for ten times as long as it would do on the earth.

Then they used lasers to get responses from the receivers left on the moon by a latter Apollo mission.

Yes, but who is behind the mythbusters programme? That's what we have to ask!

Hey, I was wondering. Is it true that even in a vacuum, solar winds blow?

The solar wind, came blowing in, from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair, and walk with me

I like those conspiracy type shows, sometimes they convince me it might be possible others, like the Moon landing, not. I'm pulling for Sasquatch

Oh, I am SO all over Sasquatch and alien abductions and tiny metal thingies implanted in abductees' necks.

That the Sploofus editors never abuse there power. Sounds plausible, but unlikely.

Pantyhose were definitely a conspiracy from the religious right

I like the one put forth by Mel Gibson in "Conspiracy Theory" that said that more earthquakes happen when the Space Shuttle is aloft because they have a secret earthquake ray aboard.

Although I'm not usually paranoid it dumbfounds me that the banks and corps. like AIG were allowed to operate the way they did. If indeed that is a big part of economic collapse it seems as though it could have been some sort of conspiracy by corp. I think when enough money is involved in the corporate world anything is possible. I think alot of people made money off the economic climate and now the rest of us have to suffer.

Bobo, first of all I don't think there were many winners.

Secondly, if I now understand the AIG thing now, AIG as a result of reckless business practices owed gobs of money to overseas entities. I'm not sure I understand why we the taxpayers had to make good on their defaults. Perhaps someone can explain that, Bradd.

Third, the banks - unsound practices egged on by the likes of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and not regulated by the executive branch

I've just spun the Beatle's White Album LP backwards a dozen times now, and Paul McCartney's still on the TV with his new galpal. I think I've been hoodwinked somewhere along the line...

The recent Air Force One fly-over New York City was actually a means of spraying a brainwashing chemical agent to gain control of the people's hearts and minds.
This combined with Obama's recent trip to Mexico where the release of the N1H1 flu virus (he has control of the antidote) will allow him to gain control of the world and eventually do away with talk radio. (Rush, Sean, Bill, Mark, et al.)

See you are following his directive and NOT calling it "Swine Flu"- must have gained control of your mind accidentally, huh? Linda
