All Hands On Deck

BBC hit pieces not enough to deter the conspiratorial menace? Serious minded journalists unavailable? Why not throw in some side splitting stuff from an acknowledged expert of what's on colour television?
Imagine the paperwork. Imagine the level of planning, recruitment, coordination, control, and unbelievable nerve required to pull off a conspiracy of that magnitude. Really picture it in detail. At the very least you're talking about hiring hundreds of civil servants cold-hearted enough to turn a blind eye to the murder of thousands of their fellow countrymen. If you were dealing with faultless, emotionless robots - maybe. But this almighty conspiracy was presumably hatched and executed by fallible humans. And if there's one thing we know about humans, it's that our inherent unreliability will always derail the simplest of schemes.
The only argument with this thought experiment, is that the official conspiracy only requires 19 people, why should an unofficial one require any more?
They mumble about the "controlled demolition" of WTC 7 (oft referred to as "the third tower"), or posit the notion that the Bush administration knew 9/11 was coming and let it happen anyway
The only argument with this is that the 3rd tower is irrelevant. It has nothing to do with the events of that fateful day we must never forget to unquestioningly accept. No planes hit it. It just fell down by coincidence, and therefore has no place in any theory. Indeed, the official report gave it little attention. If it had happened any other day, hard bitten new yorkers would not have batted an eyelid.
This begs the question; why should our samurai of sarcasm even bring it up? Especially after seven long years of silence on the matter? The truth is the fat cunt was lured into this stygian murk by the hated conspiranoids. If it wasn't for those fucking bastards, hardly anyone would have paid it any attention at all.
The reality - that "the man" is scarcely competent enough to control his own bowels, and doesn't give a toss about you anyway - is depressing and emasculating; just another day in the cardboard box factory.
The only argument with this is the incompetent seem remarkably able to get everything they want (including a supine and conformist "commentariat") while we, the deluded, also get everything they want.
Beginner's luck, I suppose.
If they do not "give a toss" about their fellow country folk, why would they blanch at rubbing out a few thousand replaceables in pursuit of their greater good?

After all, they do it everywhere else.

My favourite line from that article is...

Because to believe the "system" is trying to control you is to believe it considers you worth controlling in the first place. The reality - that "the man" is scarcely competent enough to control his own bowels, and doesn't give a toss about you anyway

which, as denials of the very existence of fascism goes, catapults Booker straight to the top of the list of world class cunts

if only it were an olympic event

Its rather desperate watching a professional funnyman trying to make a serious point.

Your new screen name is absolutely brilliant - and I'm happy about that.
Watch out though, it can be a rough neighbourhood for non intelligent, wonky headed people.

Violence never solved anything, but then past performance is no indicator of future returns
