Are Monster readers conspiracy theorists or do they actually fall under the category of people who pay attention to connections?
I personally do not believe that there are conspiracies running rampant throughout our government; rather I believe there are incredibly powerful, (but stupid), people “nudging” events in a direction that is beneficial to their pocketbooks and agendas with no foresight or regard for the consequences of such actions throughout the following decades and centuries; i.e. The Pilgrims Society and their race to control all the money, power, land, resources, or the quagmire of the middle east with the Shah, Hussein, The Taliban, so on and so forth.
Take our elected officials, for example, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and the Usurper himself who receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and sweetheart deals on mortgages, who then appear to repay the “goodwill” with legislation that 15-20 years later bankrupts the country; i.e. Frannie, Freddie, the NY Banks, etc. When one researches far enough back, one will find the connections that were built upon to create the situations we are now experiencing. Would that we had all of bambi’s personal and college records to trace the connections…I am sure the trail would take us to some very interesting places, (Pakistan), and people. Since we do not have the transparency to do such research, I will be applying the connections theory to my number one agitation factor, The Patriot Act, in upcoming posts.
The definition of conspiracy from The Free Dictionary:
n. pl. con·spir·a·cies1. An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.2. A group of conspirators.3. Law An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.4. A joining or acting together, as if by sinister design: a conspiracy of wind and tide that devastated coastal areas.
For those of you that have not had the pleasure of watching the ten episode documentary BBC series, I would like to introduce James Burke; “Connections” for your viewing enjoyment in hopes that you will adopt the connections view of looking at our current government, the state our country is in, and why.
