Yup, he believes the Bin Laden raid was all a stunt to boost approval ratings.


(Palm slap to forehead)

I try not to talk politics at the office, just smile and change the subject...."say, I heard there's a new iPad on the way" :)

That kind of ideological gullibility has to be exploitable...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Ughhhh: I have a co-work ...

Now I know, maybe you could cultivate the misconception that you're a fundraiser for some really obnoxious candidate or other, then start selling him crap you find in the roadside as "campaign memorabilia"... What's that? Too much work?
Ok, I can see that, but I'll keep working on it... I'll figure something out.

I won't mention his theories on 9/11.

I try to convince him that government incompetence automatically makes elaborate conspiracies impossible.

If the government cannot reliably ship a postcard to another city or have air traffic controllers who are always awake, how likely is it that a conspiracy involving hundreds, if not thousands of government employees can be kept a secret?

Not so sure

by JamesRL In reply to Not Really Politics

There is deep down a political motivation.

The birthers seek to discredit Obama, by suggesting he lied about meeting the requirements.

The Deathers think Obama lied because they don't want him to take credit for the killing of Bin Laden.

I watched a conspiracy guy on the morning news explain the mountain of evidence that OBL died in late 2001/ early 2002, but I don't believe it.

But he's right.

That's why They staged the fake 'burial at sea', why They won't release photos that don't really exist, and why the Pakistani gov't wasn't involved. The Seals flew in, shot up a helicopter, and left. Isn't it obvious?

And Elvis is working graveyard shift at a Memphis Krispy-Kreme. He and Jimmy Hoffa come over for poker once a month. Ameila Earhart brings sandwiches.

Well, if they can fake a moon landing, then this is no big deal

And don't forget about that missle attack on the Pentagon in September 2001, or the controlled demolition of those buildings in New York the same day (seriously, he believes that too).
