is that your scenario @#139, is just a trifle too complex & byzantine
(I dare not say paranoic)
(I thought I was joking.)
(& Mondo Bizarro, fine dude)
Then, when your done, tell me why the FBI and government allowed these known terrorism-connected poeple who were on the terrorist watch lists of FBI, INS and State Department to roam the country and train, plot & plan and then carry out this massive, murderous terrorist attack?
Have you even bothered reading all the prior knowledge stories published in the mainstream press and posted here on FR, or is it too scary to you to believe?
Americans tend to talk, at least most Americans do.
You are positing a conspiracy involving hundreds if not thousands of players in secret cooperation, all betraying the most basic and sacred American principles in order to promote a totalitarian State here.
You're damned right I don't believe this thoery.
Remember the "law of parsimony"("the simplest explanation tends to be the best") also known as "Occam's Razor" explained on proud2bRC' s home page on FR. Your theory is simply extremely ELABORATE!
I didn't mean to call you names, only for you to get some perspective, which perspective is sometimes rendered through humor for some of us.
Duh! That's got to be one of the stupidest statement I've ever heard!
Does the mafia exist or is it made up?
What in the hell do you think the mafia is?
Do you believe this subpoena exists?
I know Bob Barr and John Ashcroft, both.
They are good men.
At least metaphorically.
It wsn't by accident that Ken Starr hired a RICO (Racketeering-Influenced & Corrupt Organizations) expert to investigate the Clinton way of governing in Arkansas.
If you did, would that make him above reproach?
Or are we talking about two entirely different things?
That is what I understand you to be saying &, if so, our conversation is ENDED!
Conspiracies are hard to maintain when there are more than two Americans involved.
Is the mafia real and does it involve hundreds or thousands of people?
This is not a subject for public flaming.
I salute your libertarian-type vigilance against an intrusive state, as evidenced in the many posts and the pattern of posts in your personal profile.
Your debating style, at this point, is getting abusive & defensive.
I don't fight Freepeers if I can avoid it, generally, especially distinguished Freepers, like yourself.
I will not contemplate the theory that Bush is part of a totalitarian conspiracy, but you are free to do so.
If you believe this theory, you are potentially endangering yourself, by declaring it on a public thread.
If you don't believe it, you are being a bit reckless.
I don't believe you really believe this, you are just trying it out and seeing how far it can go.
If so, I too like to sometimes pursue far out scenarios which I think are unlikely but which have a certain internal consistency.
Paranoid schizophrenics, which I worked with at one time, have internally consistent, but inelegant (complicated) belief systems, which are,neverheless, not the simplest explanations for reality, not by a long shot.
Paranoids are sometimes right, but more often they can create self-fulfiling prophecies, i.e., enemies whre there were none previously.
Osama bin Laden is a case in point.
My last reply to you contained the word, in caps, "ENDED."
Ended means "ended."
IF you are a true libertarian, not a pseudo libertarian, who wants and needs to contol others, like some so-called "libertarians," you will leave me alone.
This is called the totalitarian impulse or need to control or domnateor abuse, others.
I have seen such an impulse in some relatives or fiends who are, or claim to be "libertarians."
Your forbearance, and ability to respect my wishes, is a test.
