  1. Seriously, it's as if conservatives just can't let anything go. Now that they see that they have fucking nobody, the economy is on the upswing, and Osama is dead, the whole thing is just "planned too well".

    I consider myself a liberal, and I didn't cry conspiracy when W was elected for the second time, I merely took a moment to re-acknowledge how stupid the general public is.

    Honestly conservatives, please pick up that Donald Trump birther bullshit again, it was way more believable than a global conspiracy to re-elect the scary black man.
  2. Where is the economy on the upswing? Wall Street?

    Ron Paul 2012!

  9. why would you start this thread if you don't want to hear about the silly conspiracies?

    making the thread just brings them out of the woodwork..
  10. You can always tell how ignorant someone is when they confuse the terms "conspiracy" and "theory".
  11. well since conspiracies have to do with a person's 'inability to tolerate incongruity' no they won't even stop unfortunately ...and as a conservative i find them highly lame as well

    Thinking that everything is random is boring and stupid. History is replete with examples of economic determinism.

  15. Okay, I'll go another angle for ya! :smoke:

    Fed Chairman - 2006 - Present, Ben Bernanke
    NY Fed President - 2003–2009, Timothy Geithner (he also served as Vice Chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee).
    US Secretary of the Treasury - 2006 - 2009, Henry Paulson. 2009 - Present, Timothy Geithner.

    Goldman Sachs ties?

    Henry Merritt "Hank" Paulson, Jr. served as the 74th United States Treasury Secretary. He previously served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs.

    In March 2008 Timothy Franz Geithner, the 75th and current United States Secretary of the Treasury, arranged the rescue and sale of Bear Stearns. In the same year, he played a supporting role to Henry Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, in the decision to bail out AIG just two days after deciding not to rescue Lehman Brothers from bankruptcy.

    AIG Bailout- $180,000,000,000 (courtesy of the Federal Reserve, The US Treasury, and of course - taxpayers)
    Goldman Sachs Bailout- $70,000,000,000

    The Goldman Sachs bailout breaks down as follows:
    $10 billion from TARP
    $11 billion from the Federal Reserve
    $30 billion from the FDIC
    $13 billion from AIG

    Additional controversy attended the selection of former Goldman Sachs lobbyist Mark Patterson as chief of staff to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, despite President Barack Obama's campaign promise that he would limit the influence of lobbyists in his administration. In February 2011, the Washington Examiner reported that Goldman Sachs was "the company from which Obama raised the most money in 2008" and that its "CEO Lloyd Blankfein has visited the White House 10 times."

    What could a rapid expansion in the money supply do for commodity prices? Gold was trading at an absurdly high $800/oz during "The Great Recession". Today we have $1,557/oz gold, and the inflation. There is currently an abundance of oil but our currency against our top two importers (Canada and Mexico) is at a 2 1/2 year low.

    Also, just a days ago, a weird switch-a-roo at the old CIA/White House/Military:

    I wonder what kind of blowback this will have? Both the death of bin Laden and the shuffle in war mongers perhaps in case of said blowback? Why do I get this eery feeling that this is the beginning of a very bad period in time...
  16. LOL politics... the only forum where you post 6 sentences and get a middle-school caliber essay in return.
  17. Its sad because even a 6th grader can connect those dots.
