Subject: Questions need answers, don't they?

I think that's Alex Jones ideal function: he's the best at asking questions that - if answered, could either make him look like a moron, or make the world a much better place.


I don't think I have to believe in what anyone says 100%, heck "religious" people bend the rules when they want so this binary "believer/non-believer" in "conspiracy theory" b.s. doesn't work on me.

I say let him ask away, and qualitatively, his evidence and analysis are exceptional; his conclusions are insane.

Makes no sense?


I love the dark side of history he brings to it, and the idea that what he's saying is "not" possible is also really strange considering what we most of us know about crimes of the 20th century. The idea that he's even half right is scary, but I guess so is being unsure. He goes on about "New World Order" a bit more than he can justify here, but he does put a lot of pieces of some sort of puzzle in front of us, and that's enough to suggest we should finish it.

The Oklahoma stuff really got me, as his use of a bunch of "mainstream sources" paradoxically built up an incredible cover-up story. While the 9/11 stuff is great, we can see the corporatization of the media shrank the number of sources he counts on to goof up and say something that contradicts the official story. This also includes his latest take on "7/7", or The London Bombings - which I recommend checking for balance since everyone else seems to be racing for conclusions and solutions. The "alternative/indie/liberal" media is now both much more popular and much more clearly marginalized and discredited by the mainstream, which makes all this stuff more important than ever.

Remeber Fahrenheit 9/11?


I like some of his stuff, and even as just entertainment this is fast-paced and a hell of a ride. In fact, I bet if more people in the world watched it we'd ask more good questions that would make the world better - props to the nearly 10,000 who have downloaded it so far.

A stretch?


This ain't a "Left/Conspiracy" position, it's just a logical democractic one: "Hey Right/Government, why don't YOU tell us why this guy is wrong or crazy so we can chill out?"


Some lighter fare that stuck in my head includes:

Jon Stewart on the Presidential Election, the Media, and Politics


Some darker fare that stuck in my head includes:

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh spills the secrets of the Iraq quagmire and the war on terror


They prove the media's full of crap and the government is full of crap, and combined with 911: the Road to Tyranny and lots of other stuff it adds up to something...

Peace, (NOW!!!)
