    Default Oh Nos! Conspiracy Theorists Full Of Shit!

    Many of you who've been on this board for a few years have been...well...entertained by the whack-job conspiracy types who've come and gone to the 'Tard Barn. You know what I'm talking about? Bush was behind 9/11 and the Iraq war was a Bush/Cheany plot to make their oil buddies even more rich.

    One of the key names they'd throw around was the Carlyle Group, a "Shadowy" international financial organization that did all kinds of evil corperatee stuff and was behind everything from NAFTA to American Idol.

    Well sports fans,the Carlyle Group is in deep doo-doo:

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1205...apl=y&r=807433

    Yesterday, a publicly traded investment fund affiliated with Carlyle Group that had ballooned to $22.7 billion back in the era of easy borrowing all but collapsed as banks rushed to sell assets backing the mortgage fund. Shares of Carlyle Capital Corp., which trades in Europe, are down 97% for the year, closing yesterday at 35 cents.

    Across Wall Street, banks that once lent freely and engaged in all sorts of complex transactions are now scrambling to protect their balance sheets. Some that once fought to lend to private-equity firms are now suing their erstwhile clients.

    97% DOWN?

    Yeah, Bush in the White House has certainly worked out for them hasn't he?

    So much for the New World Order. Remember the Carlyle Group next time some dipshit starts telling you WTC #7 was a controlled explosion.

    The sad thing is that they DID go into Iraq to secure WMDs. Then when they didn't find any they suddenly realized that they had no "Plan B".

    If I give you a credit card with 1,000,000 limit and you do nothing for 6 years but milk it and live off it until it hits the limit did you REALLY have 6 years of great prosperity or did you have 6 years of lazy self serving stupidity with no plan for infrastructure and foundation building? I think the answer is pretty clear.

    Good post.

    If you gave me a million-dollar credit card I would use it responsibly.

    Kinda like we had under Clinton in the late 90's with the over inflated, fraud ridden stock market. Everybody was fat and happy and Clinton got the praise and then around 2000,2001 the bubble burst and we came back down to reality. Clinton was outta office, keeping a kinda low profile and probably banging a few chicks and Bush got the honor of trying to clean up the mess. I'm not a big fan of Bush, but if you honestly look at economics, it's hard to put the blame on one person, even if he is the President. There are so many other factors that are in play. Clinton got the benefit of good timing and Bush did not.

    Which quckly changed to plan C-get Sadaam, then Plan D-esp. democracy-and so on. Bush is such a tool, probably the worst president we ever had. I wish he was as concnerned about high gas prices as he is about steroids in baseball. Honestly, who gives a fuck if a MLB player is more juiced than a Florida orange grove? I don't, its a fucking game. Of course, the leader of the free world and most powerful man in the world can't do anything, can he?

    Let's not forget we gave them at least 2 weeks notice.

    Are you seriously comparing a drug raid in a trailer park to a chemical weapons raid on an entire country?

    Then again...Oh for Christ's sake, be real.

    There were NO weapons of mass destruction, let alone any credible evidence to invade the country on such a basis.
    And even if these weapons could have been designed, let alone manufactured and stored, who exactly would have built them in the first place? Beyond that improbability, with two week's notice, all evidence of this culpability simply vanished? To where? New Jersey?

    No one should really be supporting George Bush at this point. I'm always surprised when they do. How bad do you have to fuck up as leader of the most powerful country in the world before people start realizing this. And, yes, the guy was the worst president we've had.
    BUT, there isn't much to really look forward to with our stunning choices for the next President.
    It's really difficult these days to be optimistic about any politician. It's sad. I'm not a pessimistic person by nature, but it's hard to find uplifting things in Washington DC these days.

    If you gave me a Credit Card with a limit of 1,000,000.00, I would go to the bank and get that in all nickels, so I would have stuff to do. After I counted it, I would take them back.
