Berthers

Apparently it's not enough to decry the illegitimate hegemony of the Federal Reserve, we have to fear that we wear its brand. Specifically it's being alleged our birth certificates --the originals, not our copies-- carry a mysterious red number that corresponds to a fixed portion of the national debt, our true personal credit status, irrevocable insolvency as it were. Umm. Indentured servitude I get, ours is an open-air debtor's prison, but thinking the FED has some inalienable paper claim on each of us jumps the shark. Recently a friend was so excited to tell me that birth certificate numbers are imbued with the legal authority of some maritime act which issues registration numbers to ships when they're berthed. He enunciated "berthed" all wide-eyed, I'm guessing he thought it was spelled the same. Want to wager he also believes some naval registry holds the secret of Obama's berth?

R W Lunartic fringe and the Lunar Year

One would think that people who claim to be very pro-Israel (long as them thar jewboys don't get too uppity) would at least know when the High Holy Days are. Glenn Beck, for instance, Breitbart, Fox News, all of them claiming a victory for Right Wing Lunatic Fringe politics and policies because the Israeli delegation wasn't at the U.N. on one of the days, Sukkot. These are the leaders of the same fringe groups who tried to make meat of the end of Ramadan being the day before September 11th this year, difference, their Adult Handlers noticed it so there weren't any Hysterical Shrieks about "Muslim Triumphalists dancing in streets on 9/11!!!" And MOST of them have dropped their ridiculous pointed slur that Barack must be an exclusively Muslim messianic name... in the face of some people replying to the their Jackass Statements with the notation that one of THE Judges, from the Book by the same name in the Old Testament, was named Barak (although today he would be described as an Unlawful Combatant and Terrorist) and the Israeli Defense minister is named Ehud Barak. One of their "oopsie" moments, one of several (hundred) (thousand) (hundreds of thousands) similar Oopsies. I'm thinking, here, that it's a massive failure of Private Education and Hoam Skewl and no, their Pastors don't know a thing about their own religious beliefs either. Oh, and these are the same Dangerously Inbred Cretins who call us Ignorant Morons because we don't share their vision of English Americans as "The New Jerusalem", don't call for the destruction of Israel in order to usher in the End of Days or other Semitic Anti-Semitism crap-ola. "Stand with Israel" except they want the Jewish people to be (almost) completely wiped out.

How long before the Extremist Rightwing Conspiracy theory?

Because FOX and their subsidiaries like the "Astroturf" TeaBags, employers of Professional and Amateur Liars on a massive scale, would have somebody within their ranks who would think it a good idea to spring the notion that the recent spate of Oil Well disasters were "rigged" not by the sheer STUPIDITY of the Oil Corporations and their Greedy minions, but are instead a sinister plot by Anarchists and Environmentalists in order to embarrass the Oil Corporations. Of course they wouldn't have proof or even Evidence, because their intended audience is really stupid to begin with. And there would be no way to gain any such evidence other than fabricating it, like they fabricated that "Kenyan birth certificate" a few months ago. Truth would not be on their side so they'll avoid anything resembling Truth. It's their way. It would also run counter to their argument if anybody on their side said this, so I'll say it: Those of us in the Environmentalist Left don't make money from shit like that. The Oil Corporations DO. The Anti-war Left doesn't make huge profits off Non-War, (although every war that ISN'T fought is a HUGE profit for everybody in the world, including us. Trickle Up economics) And the Oil Corporations, on the other make profits that are the worst kind of Obscenity from every war that IS fought. Since every good Conspiracy Theory, especially those that involve actual crimes, involves somebody making a profit.

Ancient Aliens and the Crusades/Holy English Empire

While there's evidence for and against extraterrestrial visitations, there really isn't PROOF. The Hysteria Channel show Ancient Alien came off with a whole slew of speculation mostly involving things that are a massive Rorschach Inkblot. If you're expecting to see a spider you'll see a spider, if you're expecting to see a penis or Richard Nixons famous schnozzola that's what you'll see. The team sees a site in what's now Pakistan that was hit with something that had a lot of heat, hard radiation and explosive force. The crater was like 50 yards across. Way too small for an atomic bomb even. But the radiation levels, the way the nearby rocks were turned to glass and the people who were lying in the streets dead, their skeletons are intact after more than 4000 years. If you go into the investigation saying "U.F.O." that's what you're going to see. If you went into a similar expecting angelic manifestations, you'll see the footprints of angels. Perception or deception. Or both. Enter the Crusaders. After making the case, with an escape clause in every sentence "SOME researchers CLAIM that it MIGHT be ..." for ANCIENT interventions, like in Egypt, Mesopotamia, China, India... any place with a system for recording events... They started in on Miraculous, or Aliens? theories about direct interventions in human history. For some reason, perhaps the Eurocentric vision of the researchers, the Alien Angels chose to intervene on behalf of the Crusaders. In rare instances on behalf of Jews and non-Crusader Christians like the Eastern Orthodox churches and monasteries that the Tyrannic Turks and Arabs etc actually allowed, and accommodated, in Jerusalem and other Near East cities. But not when it was those institutions weren't under attack from the Crusaders. They point to Church iconography that shows lighted humanoid figures in the sky. If you were looking for Angelic or Demonic intervention that's what you'd see. If you were looking for people who were, in their turn, looking for exactly that, and more than likely under the influence of various homemade hallucinations like rye and barley products tainted with certain molds before being cooked. Green Beer = Ergot = homebrewed LSD (or sometimes just pure poison that will kill you quick) well... that too is what you'd find. If either Angels or some Interstellar Superpower doing a little gunboat diplomacy were intervening on behalf of the Crusaders, there would be a huge gap in the logic. The Crusaders consistently LOST. That one is simple. Why would the Angels or Aliens feel that they could direct human events positively by backing Moral Retards like the Templars or Richard Couer-de-Leon? Would the alien-angels seriously have intervened in the mostly Christian-on-Christian crime spree that was the standard battle plan of the Crusaders? Richard Lionheart was kidnapped twice by and ransomed once from Fellow Christians. If the Angels seriously believed him worthy of their intervention, why not simply bust him out of the dungeon? Twice? Anybody familiar with the Robin Hood and Ivanhoe romanticized bullshit simply knows that
