Paul, you're naive. I don't get it. My grandfather is older than you are but believes GW Bush knowingly lied about WMDs in Iraq and questions who profits from all our wars. You seem to believe everything that comes out of an authority figure. I don't hate all authority, but I question the decisions of our government and president. I understand that some people need to follow authority blindly. That is their decision to make. What I don't understand is why people who accuse foreign governments of disseminating propaganda never acuse their own of doing the same.
You are absolutely amazing. Why do you feel the need to accuse of saying something I never said. Point to anything I have ever written that would lead someone who reads and understands basic English to believe I said any words that imply I don't believe our Government uses propaganda. Gee, I know it was before your time, but all the Radio Frees; Europe, Asia, etc. had as their only purpose to promulgate propaganda. To even imply that someone is so naive is the height of arrogance.
I just keep pointing out every cockamanie consiparcy you spout. You even, to prove a point, referred everyone to a web site whose very name included words to the effect that it was a site to expose all kinds of conspiracies.
Conspiracies do exist, but not to the extent you believe in them. So many of the conspiracies you talk about have so many people involved in them that it would be absolutely impossible for them to be a conspiracy.
Conspiracies, by their very nature are secret. If they are not secret, they are no longer a conspiracy. You blather about the Bilderbergers. That conspiracy is so secret they publish the names of the "members" where and when they meet and publish the results of their meetings. Hardly a conspiracy by any rational definition.The whole Bilderberger conspiracy story was first published in "Playboy," that hard hitting news journal that merely entertained its readers with some pictures of naked women to relief the stress of reading their serious news. What a joke.
I know you must really feel left out because the Bilderbergers don't invite you to sit with them. After all the would so benefit from your depth of knowledge and insightfulness. Hate to tell you to closest you would ever get to those kinds of weighty meetings would be as a waiter filling their water glasses.l
Its like Dan Brown, in his silly novels labeling Opus Dei as a Church Conspiracy. What a conspiracy, any Catholic may join. There are even no-catholic offshoots of it. NO secret handshakes. Its whole trust is for its members to pray and show the world they as individual they try to live in manner that Christ's light is evident living in them. To sanctify their workplace, the people around them, etc. And he promulgates this as some kind of conspiracy
According to you every rich man is a socialist, every bank steals from their customers, every corporation is an abomination, and on and on.
You claim to be a conservative but are, by your own admission a registered Democrat. Even Democrats who are not part of the wacky left of that party, would blanch that a fellow Democrat would describe themselves as Conservative.
Even more, all the bilge you spout is exactly the same bilge spilled out by those on the wacky left.
I have challenged you several times to name any bad popes in the last 100 years. The best you have been able to do is to say John XXIII and (your words) his silly Council and Paul VI. Yet you have yet to show why either Pope is bad or why Vatican II was silly.
But that statement shows any knowledgeable Catholic that you know absolutely nothing about Vatican II or either Pope. On Paul VI you referred us to a Rome newspaper article. Yet the newspaper cited is the Italian equivalent of our supermarket tabloids The Sun and the Enquirer. And you expect us to take this seriously?
And you have the unmitigated gall to call me naive.
