    We may all view those who traffic in conspiracy theories as harmless nutters with too much time on their hands, and most of them are. However, they foment paranoia and stoke hatred and ultimately violence by demonizing and scapegoating groups of people for the problems of the world.

    A good primer on conspiracy theories today is a paper published by PublicEye entitled Toxic to Democracy, which you can download here.

    And here is a good interview with the author.

    They are. The difficult and complex study of government and issues, for many, is boring and unexplainable except for the "likelihood" in their minds of grand conspiracies. Once they rely on conspiracies to explain the goings on of government, normal actions available to a citizen to influence the process seem futile.

    According to Toro we should just accept everything and anything the government tells us and never question the official story.

    Hi Toro with Gary and DiveBomb mentioned:

    El Toro has his head jammed into the sand (pic) and represents one of the Sheeple (pic) without one clue as to what is really going on. My Ten Reasons The USA Will Be Destroyed Opening Post (link) is directed at Sheeple just like Toro and his pal Gary. Let's look at reason # 7 and see if El Toro or his sidekick can explain themselves:

    Okay boys and girls: Tell everyone exactly what you 'do' see in the empty hole . . .

    Let's see how Toro and Gary :)cuckoo::cuckoo:) explain the fact that we are looking at pictures of an EMPTY HOLE in the EMPTY Shanksville field!!! These 911Truth 'Deniers' (pic) are the people with WAY too much time on their hands that they spend coming to the USMB Conspiracy Forum to convince everyone that 'no conspiracy exists.' Because they are lost 'and' confused :)confused::confused:), this is the very forum where USMB members 'are' supposed to post our "Conspiracy Theories" so everyone can draw informed conclusions from the evidence. I have provided Govt photographic evidence to support 'my hypothesis' that no 100-ton Jetliner crashed into that empty Shanksville field, which ALL of the evidence says is 100 percent FACT.

    Go right ahead and click on the link to the short video clip and tell everyone what you see. I also see an empty hole where the Govt says a 100-ton Jetliner crashed on 9/11. El Toro and his pal Gary are missing about 100 tons of evidence to support the Govt case . . .

    Go ahead and click on the U.S. Geological Survey Photograph taken on 4/20/1994 (that is 'before' 9/11 for the knuckleheads . . .) to see that the empty hole is already there in the empty field!!!! If my explanation for THE FACTS are off in any way, then where is Toro's crashed 100 ton jetliner? This idiot is out here supporting the Official Cover Story LIES without one shred of evidence, as if pointing fingers at people like me is going to prove anything! Toro is here to convince everyone that 'no conspiracy exists' and for you to also keep your head buried in the sand just as far as humanily possible . . .

    [​IMG]

    This is a picture demonstrating just how much 'evidence' these guys are missing from the little empty hole!

    Someone please explain why those among us who 'know' the 911Truth FOR A FACT should continue pleading with our Creator for idiots :)cuckoo::cuckoo::cuckoo:) with their head shoved into the ground :)confused::confused::confused:), when you have the audacity to point fingers at me for trying to wake you the hell up???

    No sir. Idiots like Toro and Gary and DiveBomb are in the majority and among those drunk on the Loyal Bushie/Obama/NWO Kool-aid and they want you to ignore the little boy running through the streets yelling "Wolf!!!" (pic) at the top of his lungs, so that you will be worthy of utter destruction (Acts 3:22-23, 13:41) too . . .

    GL,

    Terral
