    •  sadly, the rightwing isnt the only one filled with (0+ / 0-)

      paranoid loons who want to see conspiracies everywhere they look.

      The only good part is that the rightwing's paranoid loons get elected---ours just get laughed at.

      Pardon me, I have to go back to my CIA desk to consider new ways of preventing everyone from learning the truth about the flying saucers that killed JFK . . . . . . .

      (sigh)

        •  as I said, the conspiracy folks are not motivated (0+ / 0-)

          by facts or evidence--they are motivated by ideology, and ideology is factproof.

          Arguing with them is a waste of time.

          Best to just snicker at them.

              (snicker)

              It's CIA's orders. I have to ridicule you to, ya know, prevent others from believing you when you uncover the truth about how we killed JFK as part of the Illuminati conspiracy to take over the world.

              We killed Lincoln, too.  And we sank the Titanic.  (Or do you believe that government story about an iceberg being hundreds of miles south of the Labrador Current . . . . ?)

                what I said into a whole litany of accusations.  And how offended you are at people, 70% of the public, who doubt that Oswald acted alone.  It's like you're really sincerely offended by it in your high and mighty way.  You insult them, call them loons, it's really something.  Then you get into your (sigh) and (shrug) high school act.  That's funny too.  You just a funny dude.

                •  alas, another characteristic of conspiracy folks (0+ / 0-)

                  is that they take themselves very very seriously, and they tend to assume everyone else does too. That's why they are so easy to lead around by the nose.

          •  So I guess (0+ / 0-)

            you must be snickering at the 70% of Americans who don't believe as you do.  It is really astonishing to me that the word "conspiracy" evokes such a reaction in SOME on this site.  I think the word is in the dictionary for a reason don't you?  Maybe , just maybe it happens once in awhile...
