    I Want To Believe! The Geico Gecko leads the half reptilians. They all save more than 10% on their car insurance. Run the numbers, it’s all in there man. I’m starting to come around on the “David Stern controls the outcomes of NBA games” conspiracy. Every conference final and championship series from here on out will go 7 games. He uses the extra advertising money to appease the gecko, who passes it on to us peons as a 10% discount.

      There was one play where either Rondo or Pierce, can’t remember now, drove to the hoop and was basically molested by D-Wade and friends. No call. Van Gundy was laughing about it.

      I’m sort of surprised that Stern is not involved with the Bilderbergers. It’s a natural fit.

    After a lifetime of studying the American media and having gotten personal information from people I knew, grew up with or encountered, I can now say that the truth is all here “hidden in plain sight” to discredit or cause doubt of the many “conspiracy theories” presented here. I have concluded that the conspiracy theories are true and the “history” we have been fed by the media is total bullshit. The truth will ever increasingly be revealed (as in o,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34 etc ala pine cones)as we approach 12/21/2012.

      As Napoleon said, history is a set of lies agreed upon. And he would know.

      All I know is, I’m writing in Fibonacci for president this year…

      Thanks for reading/commenting.

    “Me, I find it hard to believe that any shadowy world-ruling cabal would include a guy who was played by Justin Timberlake in The Social Network.”

    The line alone made the piece worth reading, and belongs on the masthead.

      Thanks, Sir OPR.

      For the record, I enjoyed that movie, and JT’s performance it in.

      Did you know about that JFK speech? I just recently discovered it.

    I’m about as anti-conspiracy theory as you can be. My sister & bro-in-law bounce between being 9/11 Truthers, germ freaks (they don’t vaccinate because of big pharma and a cascading list of paranoia), you name it they subscribe. It’s fun to think about in a sci-fi way, but I don’t have the time. These things get filtered out in a sort of intellectual triage.

    All you write about, and specifically Bilderburg/rich guys getting together and weilding power, are somewhat transparent, not so nefarious, and contain as much moral ambiguity as a bunch of liberals lighting a joint and talking about saving the world as they read their Che and Chomsky. Namely, there’s good & evil everywhere.

    Good food for thought, Greg.

      Thanks for reading/commenting, Caleb.

      I think it’s true that a lot of this stuff is bunk. But the Bilderberg guys DO meet, and they meet in secret, and the media abets this; there’s nothing transparent about it. It’s not quite the same as me and the lefties smoking a doob because we’re not worth billions and billions of dollars, nor do we have profound global influence (and also because I don’t smoke doob). If it’s really a bunch of rich dudes listening to lectures, great…but let us know, if only so guys like me will slam the door on the idea of a conspiracy.

      Vaccines are one of the best things about being alive now. Anyone who doesn’t vaccinate his or her kid because of some BS reason needs to read up about the diphtheria epidemics in NYC in the 1890s. That was horrific stuff.
