Jerry,

Your message was opinions, from you and the MSM, presented as
facts.

The real facts, from Vincent's lists and my quotes, are clear:

i) there are many real and proven major national and
international conspiracies;

ii) an unknown number of conspiracies, maybe a majority, are
still secret - successfully covered-up;

iii) establishments, via control of mass media, try to
stigmatize any investigator or whistle-blower by claiming they
are `conspiracy theorists' and therefore not believable (a real
non sequitur, since any suspicion of a conspiracy is by
definition a `theory');

iv) periodically media hacks - directly or indirectly paid or
controlled by MSM and establishments - re-hash that `conspiracy
theory' canard as if it were true and therefore dangerous to
society.

What could be more dangerous than the real and proven
conspiracies - many murderous and often war-mongering, and _all_
designed to keep the public in ignorance - that we already know
about?

And don't forget there _is_ an unknown number of conspiracies in
existence that we can only suspect or guess at.


Cheers
