I love how everyone's pretending that whole "loose change/911 was an inside job" thing never happened and liberal conspiracy theorists are new.

Just like we did over the Pentagon Papers.

Just like we did over JFK.

    I love how everyone's pretending that whole "loose change/911 was an inside job" thing never happened and liberal conspiracy theorists are new.

I never watched Loose Change (had to google it), but most of the jobbers I've met were InfoWars types. More self-issued license plates than liberals. Maybe just because I'm in Kansas, tho. Even if it is Leftist Kansas.

That said, there's always an undercurrent of this on the extremes of both sides.

Shit, they're everywhere. Teamsters' politics has similar theorists: TDU. I'm sympathetic to their positions, but sometimes I mean really: come on.

One man's black helicopter is another man's illuminati. Me? I just know Kang and Kodos came in on the same ship.

The defining phrase of my political consciousness is "no drama Obama". This has been one hella rabbit hole.

I remember watching this:

I wasn't asleep during the Bush years, I was just... y'know... pro-Bush at the time. At least now we can definitively say that he wasn't the worst ever.

Edit: I'm NOT young enough for you to circle dot this

In four words Reagan owns a sitting president. It's amazing how a moment can swing or solidify things.

I recall this being everywhere:

If you're gonna wear a helmet, it better look cool or you're screwed.

Yeah. Reagan was against Medicare expansion and he won the debate by basically saying "chickenbutt."

That's the appalling thing about politics post-fairness doctrine: to the bombast go the spoils.

But nobody. Ever. In the history of mankind. Has been as owned as Quayle was by Bensen:

Although I'm acutely aware that people have always been jerks to each other, it's nice to see the footage.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Bentsen/Dukakis would have done better than Dukakis/Bentsen. Fun fact: Dukakis has a son who is half-brother to the Human Mealworm.
