Your Chance to Evaluate the Credibility of Nutjobs

Some folks believe everything they read. Some cling to conspiracy theories to explain a world that operates outside their comfort zone--it gives some people relief to believe in the nefarious plots of people they can identify rather than to worry about a big bad world where no one is really in charge, and bad things can happen seemingly capriciously.

Here's a lively one, and the nutjobs in the story were helpful enough to provide dates for these apocalypses. Let's see how close to reality they come--the first is only two months away.

Word has begun leaking from last weeks special, closed-door session of the United States House of Representatives.

Theorists wrote "Not only did members discuss new surveillance provisions as was the publicly stated reason for the closed door session, they also discussed: The imminent collapse of the U.S. economy to occur by September 2008, the imminent collapse of US federal government finances by February 2009, the possibility of Civil War inside the USA as a result of the collapse and advance round-ups of "insurgent U.S. citizens" likely to move against the government.

Also theorised was the detention of those rounded-up at "REX 84" camps constructed throughout the USA and the possibility of retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses and the location of "safe facilities" for members of Congress and their families to reside during expected massive civil unrest

Other answers included "the necessary and unavoidable merger of the United States with Canada" (for its natural resources) and with Mexico (for its cheap labor pool), the issuance of a new currency - THE AMERO - for all three nations as the proposed solution to the coming economic armageddon.

Members of Congress were FORBIDDEN to reveal what was discussed and ABC News via WCPO web site at the link below CONFIRMS congress members were FORBIDDEN to talk about it!

I clicked on the "web site at the link below"--well, compare the hysteria of that last paragraph with the WCPO (local Cincinnati ABC affiliate) report yourself and make your own decisions.

And stock up on ammo before September. While you're doing that, I'm going to Cancun to spend some Ameros.
