8. This is no "tinfoil hat"
I guess I was a MIHOPer very early in the game. I've posted on the subject of MIHOP before and have a tendency to repeat certain points.

It started in late November, 1963. It just felt like a true conspiracy. Especially when nothing added up. For the next 30 years, I was not particularly politically astute, but I do remember in the eighties my reaction to the sudden infusion of crack cocaine on the streets. I literally shook my fist at the sky (in lieu of in the face of Ronalt Reagan) screaming "I lay THIS at your feet! YOU are solely responsible for this." At the time, I felt as though I was being unreasonable, but I felt there was a strong element of truth, as well.

Around 1995, I picked up a book at Barnes & Noble (or something like it) called, "The Big Book of Conspiracy." Do you remember that "The Big Book of..." series? They covered several topics and were usually kept in the humor section of bookstores. Anyway, I bkought "The Big Book of Conspiracy," and it was there that I learned of the Danny Casolaro, PROMIS, etc. I was fascinated by all the conspiracies presented in comic book form. The "wraparound" was a shadowy cartoon figure who acted as a guide (slouch hat, never saw his face, etc.) The most significant thing that I take away from that book is the final narrative of our cartoon host. The message was something like, "But what if these weren't a bunch of conspiracies? What if these were merely parts of the same overall conspiracy?"

That floored me.

I didn't think about any of this until September 15-20 of 2001. That's when I said, "Wait a minute! Why does this smell so much like the Kennedy Assassination?!!"

That's when I discovered www.whatreallyhappened.com, www.democraticunderground.com and several other sites. I visit these sites daily.

Because of the strident and inflexible unwillingness of the * cabal to provide any cooperation, any sharing of information, I have, for the past 3 years been in an "automatic presumption of guilt" mode concerning the government.

At this point, I would have to be seriously de-programmed from believing that this IS all one vast conspiracy.
