Conspiracy Tuesday

      Dear Friends:

      As you know, for quite some time we have held a rule that you can only have a conspiracy theory on Tuesday. This prevents those who believe in conspiracy theories from dominating the boards. If you have a good conspiracy theory, then this is the place to post it. As a quality control measure, I must remind you that all good conspiracy theories have the following characteristics:

      They cannot be either proven of disproven.
      They have some sort of shadowy figure.
      There must be some sort of ominous threat.

      Please note that a good conspiracy doesn’t actually have to have anything more than a hint of truth to it.

      With that in mind, I would like to point something which may or may not be a coincidence. Our site was hacked two months ago and once the site is up and running, someone comes on our site like some sort of carpet-bagger to sell spyware software in the “Next Best Thing to Popcorn” thread in the General Questions forum. Just a coincidence? Hard to say, but anti-virus and security software is useless unless there is a real threat. Who profits from hacking, if not security software companies. Just a thought.

      Well since it’s Tuesday, I have one. There is a conspiracy theory out there that the Pharma companies purposely supress cures for some big time illnesses so that they can supply all of us with a lifetime of drugs. This guarantees them a consistent revenue stream while the drugs are protected from competition from generics, etc.

      Also there is another conspiracy theory that drug companies “create” side effects in their drugs in order to treat those side effects with other drugs they offer.

      My conspiracy theory is the same as yours on that “spyware thingy”:mad:

      But do you think this person also is trying to sell us “popcorn” ??????Hmmm
      I wouldn’t want to try their popcorn either, it might make us robots of some kind. Then we’re all doomed.:eek:

      Have spent endless hours on the phone with Medicare, United Health Care, and my employer (at least until I officially retire next month), trying to straighten out prescription drug plan. And, am on prednisone.

      The next person who says “don’t worry about it” may be forcibly retained in the basement of my apartment building teaching men and women in their 20’s and 30’s how to wash clothes.

      Retaining existing customers is more cost efficient than looking for new markets. My Medicare supplement is under the auspices of United Health Care, and I have had very few problems with them over the past 6 years.

      Ironically I was a customer service manager at my former employer. Their Human Resources Department (remember when we were people?) is appalling and does as little as possible. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 phone calls to get a simple answer from them. In that this is a very large company with manuals for everything, a dingbat sitting in a cubicle in New Jersey/New York should have answers/information at their fingertips but they appear to either be lazy or unwilling to take responsibility for anything.

      You’re right…the me generation really needs to learn.

      Dear Friends:

      After recently listening to an episode of the Art Bell Show (Okay, just suffice it to say that I was captured, kidnapped, and as torture I had to choose between listening to the Art Bell Show or watching 24 hours of nothing but reality TV) where someone was droning on about NASA covering up evidence of life on Mars. This is pretty standard conspiracy stuff. No evidence is required and it is difficult to disprove. The fact that know one has ever seen evidence of life on Mars only proves how vast the conspiracy is.

      This got me thinking. Has there ever been a government agency in the history of mankind that has been competent enough to pull off a vast coverup? The correct answer is no. So here is the real conspiracy. NASA has been smashing roughly two out of three expensive probes into the Martian surface, asteroids, or the surface of the Earth. For this, NASA has been pilloried in the press. So what can NASA do to create the image of competence. Simply, they create rumors of life on Mars, then they deny any knowledge of life on Mars. This way, the look like they are competent enough to keep a secret. They develope a certain James Bond mystique in that they look like they know something and you aren’t going to find out what it is.

      Well, that’s my conspiracy theory. Try to prove me wrong.

      Did this site go down for a couple of days? I had posted my thoughts and now I see none of my posts from the other day are here :confused: I think that was a conspiracy BIG TIME. I had written about me being an old Art Bell fan and that I thought he had retired. What’s up with this timing?

      Suspicious I do say. I’ll write later about my other thoughts I had posted about the Moon.

      This is my third or fourth post on the same subject: Medicare Part D. The reason I could not register: The very large corporation for which I worked is, like many others, allowed to EXCLUDE people who have been on long term disability from their retiree drug plan. The bottom line (the only thing that counts is $$$$$) is: our government allows blatant discrimination against the disabled.


      P.S. About a year ago, I pompously wrote on the political thread that my prescription benefits would be in place after my 65th birthday. Marc questioned my post. He was right (admitting Marc was right is very painful but fair).

      I heard F. Castro’s younger brother, is going to attack Flordia to divert attention away from the Middle East for Bush. After the battle, Bush will grant him the lower half of Flordia, and send 200 billion in Aid to help smuggle Cuban Cigars in to Texas. Then Cuba will be turned into one big prison to hold Middle East captives so that Bush and his Dad can tease them from their fishin yacht.

      Look there’s a rabbit.

      Dear Friends:

      I heard a great conspiracy theory today. I saw it on the internet so it must be true.

      This theory has been going around on the internet and it goes something like this:

      The United States Government planned and executed the September 11th attacks. If you look up September 11th Conspiracies on Google, you will actually find over 200,000 hits on the subject. So if it is on the internet 200,00 times, there must be something to it, right?

      Well, except for one small little tiny detail. The people who are espousing these theories are still alive. You see, if our all powerful government can secretly kill 3000 people in broad daylight, then why couldn’t they whack a socially inept conspiracy theorist whom almost know one would miss?

      Unless, they only want us to think that the government committed the atrocities on September 11th to cover something else up which is even more sinister.

      The truth is that Wal-Mart, Microsoft, and the Illuminati are controlled by the Bush family and are planning to take over the world, only they’re being foiled by the geneticists in the UFO’s. It’s all a plan by The Man to keep us down…

      Dear RC:

      If Microsoft is competent enough to seek world domination, then why can’t they make a computer operating system that actually works? If the U.S. Government can’t even keep secret how they monitor terrosrist finances, how can they keep up a massive cover-up that would be required to hide any involvement in September 11th. And about Walmart, what about those 100 year old greeters? Just window dressing? Well, I think they are just window dressing, so Wal-Mart, in a devious double cross, makes the greeters part of their corporate identity so they can cleverly infiltrate the eldery community. And don’t even get me started about the Illuminati. Not that I have anything against them for kicking me out of their club. My dues were two stinking days late, for goodness sake! Do you know how hard world domination can be if you don’t belong to a nefarious secret club?

      Castro in Cuba falling more sick, probably won’t change much. Thank god Bush tightened up those trade embargos, after all, we only have a $365 million trade surplus with them. Mostly cash. Nothing like the $200billion trade defict with communist China which Bush can’t get enough of. What needs to be looked after is, that huge new discovery of oil under Cuba and around it. That will make a difference. Who’s going to get it? The race is on.

      The aliens are in my neighborhood. I have experienced the following recently.

      –Waking up paralyzed with a sense of a strange person or presence or something else in the room.

      –Experiencing a period of time of an hour or more, in which you were apparently lost, but you could not remember why, or where you had been.

      –Seeing unusual lights or balls of light in a room without knowing what was causing them, or where they came from.

      –Finding puzzling scars on your body and neither you nor anyone else remembering how you received them or where you got them.

      –Feeling that you were actually flying through the air although you didn’t know why or how.

      My wife found this while digging in the flowerbed. Looks like a alien skull to me. Don’t it to you? I bet Crippler could tell us.


      All those years I scoffed at the mention of aliens. But its true, all of it. I’m sure now.

      See old Xena there? The astronomer who discovered that dwarf planet, also has a dozen more just like it, that he discovered along with it in his computer. Just not released yet. At the outer edge of our universe, there are a lot of rocks floating around. Apparently, none of these dwarf planets, including Pluto, are influenced by gravity from our sun, hence their odd patern of orbit.

      Dear Brandy:

      Everyone knows that Pluto is a dog. Mickey Mouse’s dog to be exact. He got booted off the planet list because Goofey has all the power. And just what exactly is Goofey, anyways? He’s a sick alien freak is what he is. He looks like a dog but he talks like a man and wears pants. He probably took Donald Duck’s pants through some sort of extortion plot. Can someone, for the sake of half-naked ducks around the world, stop this diabolical fiend? I know what your thinking. Poor Goofey had a rough upbringing and an underpriveledged puppyhood ….. childhood ….. whatever …. Well boo-hooo, cry me a river you muntt (half man, half mutt), it doesn’t really matter, the point is, in a fit of inadequacy, he robs his best childhood friend of the one thing he has going for him, planetary status, when in fact, it is Pluto who would give his best buried bone for even a day of using prehensile, opposable, thumbs. I think it is time to stop the sick freak that is Goofey before he acquires WMD’s. Who’s side are you on anyways? The humans or the muntts?

      Sorry, I got a little carried away. Nevermind.

      If you want to really know why the price of gas, not necessairly crude oil, is way up then….look no forward to the Federal goverment who racked in over 18 billion in the first quarter of 06 with “at the pump taxes”.

      The oil companies are allowed to make a profit….it is called a “Free Economy”…low gas prices are not a “right”

Is there something in the bosses’ manual that demands it? Or is it a conspiracy to keep workers downtrodden and dreading having to return to work when their holiday is over, knowing that all the work they didn’t finish will be waiting when they get back?

      My opinion on gas prices lately – its all Bush and the upcoming Republican election. I’m not opening up a politcal thread – just that Bush is doing this on purpose so we might like him better.

      My opinion on bosses that they are conspire to keep me chained to my desk. I just went to the bathroom and actually left a note on my desk saying ‘gone to restroom’. I didn’t put if it was for #1 or #2 – oops, I screwed up.

      My opinion on living in Oklahoma being #44 just means I will die sooner and not have to endure my physical problems and the above mentioned ones.

      Hey Chrissy,

      Have to agree with Stephen. Gas and costs are between the producers and the financial markets. My solution to lower them is, first stop that excuse from the producers as having no control over prices, when I believe they can and do. Take one CEO, have him wisper into the financial markets’ ear saying if prices don’t come down, we’ll flood the market. Watch them fall.

      Hey Chrissy,

      Some of us up here new what the Boz was up to, before the draft. Knowing his claim to fame nationally, was all from one film slice of him tearing a helmet off an opposing players’ head, really. He did have worthy football talent. He was leading our pro team in tackles before he got injured each time an all, but just couldn’t ever complete a season.
      There’s a reason he majored in biz, marketing in particular, an had a B average while at Ok. Smart cookie. He knew that the steroids wreaked his shoulders in high school first no doubt, but with time still on the clock before effecting play that was noticable, he made a plan. Just get that one ‘first’ big payout contract. Grab as much as possable before the pro talent exposes he can’t hold up, make a splash media wise by being contravercial, cement the image for future movie deals and so on. Our team took it hook, line and sinker to the tune of $11million, gaurenteed.
      How dumb can he be? He knew, he planned, he got it, so he deserved it just for the fact he out smarted everyone.:)
      Our team got a bit more conservitive in their picks starting the following year. I wonder why?

      Dear Chrissy:

      That isn’t the real conspiracy. This is just a clever ruse to distract you from the population implosion. It’s like this, in order for you to be on this planet, it requires 2 people, your parents. In order for your parents to be on this earth it required 4 people, your grandparents. For your grandparents to be on this earth, it required 8 people, your great grandparents, and 16 great great grandparents, 32 great great great grandparents and 64 great great great great grandparents. I think any sensible person can see where this going. For each person alive today, it required 256,000 people alive in the year 1 A.D. Further extrapolation into the future will show you that in 20 generations there will only be 286 people left left in the United States. That is the real conspiracy. The math is going to doom us.

I also use men’s razors/blades because they are cheaper than women’s razors, and I buy men’s clothes (if I can get them small enough) because they are cheaper than women’s.

      Here is another one…men’s shoes vs. women’s…why are all women’s tennis shoes in baby pastel colors (read here pink/pale yellow/lavender/baby blue – ugh!) and all the men’s shoes are in the colors I like such as red/blue/green/black.

But the media has said that President Bush will be here in Topeka Sunday and he wants as many Republican candidates running for office in Kansas as possible to be there. Basically, he’s stumping for Jim Ryan who is in a very tight race With Nancy Boyda for Congress. Ryan is famous for running the fastest mile (?) some 50 or so years ago and lately that’s all anybody talks about. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ….Vicki[/COLOR]

      Two for one!

      Being a public school teacher, I have sworn for years that there is a conspiracy against schools. Starting from the top where we have a way too idealistic law of No Child Left Behind all the way down to the parents that kids can do no wrong and get mad when their child is “disciplined.” In fact, we can’t even keep kids in for recess anymore for discipline. Everybody complains that there is no discipline in schools and then scream louder when we attempt to discipline their kid!

      And being a PE teacher, I am sure there is a consipiracy against obese kids. Do you see how cheap junk food is?? (i.e. candy and 99 cent McDonald’s double greaseburgers) I think this comes from heart surgeons and dentists wanting to keep lots of business, so these doctors work with the government to keep subsidizing sugar and sugar products. Otherwise, wouldn’t the government subsidize healthy fruit and vegetables to improve the health of poverty families???

      [B]We must stop this immediately! It’s a conspiracy I tell you.

      Have you noticed that the stairs are getting steeper.

      Groceries are getting heavier. And, everything is farther away.

      Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long the street had become! And, you know, people are less considerate now,
      especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time. If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing
      the same silent message until they’re red in the face. What do they think I am, a lip reader?

      I ran into an old friend the other day and she didn’t even recognize me. I got to thinking about the poor dear while I was combing my hair this morning, and in doing so, I glanced at my own reflection..well, really now even the mirrors are not made the way they used to be!

      Another thing, clothing manufacturers are less civilized these days. Why would they suddenly start labeling a size 10 or 12 dress as 18-20.
      People who make bathroom scales are pulling the same prank. Do they think we actually believe the number we see on the dial?

      Just who do these people think they are fooling?

      I’d call someone in authority to report what’s going on–but the telephone company is in on this conspiracy too: they’ve printed all the phone books in real small print so that no one can find the number in there.

      Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.

      Please pass this along to everyone you know as soon as possible so we can get this “CONSPIRACY” stopped.

      Legos were invented by Danish podiatrists! They can supplement their income by foot injuries caused by those little blocks from hell with jagged edges. If you are missing a Lego piece, take off your shoes and walk around barefoot, you will find it.

      Tupperware was created by doctors who specialize in head trauma! Don’t tell me you haven’t reached in to find a lid that actually matches that container and had an avalanche of death plastic raining down on your dome. I actually had a fiance’ break up with me over Tupperware (that’s a true story). Don’t tell me those Tupperbot zealots aren’t out to rule the world.

      Kool-aid was invented by the makers of formica counter tops. You can’t permanently mark a formica counter top with a Sharpie marker and a tatoo needle, but kool-aid will turn your white counter tops Jonestown purple in seconds. Okay, maybe kool-aid doesn’t have a Jonestown purple flavor, but they should.

To haul them to the store, another rip off is Bleach used to be in a gallon jug. Now you get 96 ounces & the price of it just keeps going up to, as well as coffee was in a 16 ounce can.

The chemical companies are getting rich on the backs of harding working Americans and Canadians. And I think they are to blame because they are probably flying over us as I write and dropping weed seeds or bug larvae!

      Pot holes in the road must be made at night by those who get paid to repair the pot holes.

      The Congress of the United States has passed the following laws:

      Banning oil drilling in ANWR, the most miserable piece of earth known to man.

      Banned drilling oil off the coast of California, even deep water sites beyond view of the shore.

      Banned oil drilling off the coast of Florida, even deep water rigs out of view of the shore.

      Passed laws making it next to impossible to expand oil refinery capacity.

      Increased taxes on gasoline and diesel.

      Blocked several oil pipeline proposals.

      Mandated the use of ethanol even though ethanol decreases vehicle mileage by as much as 25% and even though it takes 1.2 gallons of gasoline to produce 1 gallon of ethanol.

      Shut down an active oilfield in Colorado.

      Did nothing to increase minimum gas mileage standards for vehicles.

      Did nothing to close the SUV loophole for existing gas mileage standards.

      And then, after all of that, they are investigating “Big Oil” for the high price of gasoline. Maybe they should investigate themselves for the high cost of fuel.
