First post in journal:

I should be flattered you googled me!
Bush is a big stinky man and so are his offspring....particularly Jeb, Dubya, and Neil.
Happy now?

So, tell me...are you accusing Gerald Ford as being an accessory to the assassination of JFK?

Or will you just evade the question as usual?


Why do you lie like that, Octafish?

ETA: to make clear what was my journal entry by italicizing.

The claim was that the site made the ones illustrated. Octafish Jan 2014 #163
I only claimed that the site is where the photos came from. arcane1 Jan 2014 #171
That's because you only look at select woo-sites. Codeine Jan 2014 #75

No, as nothing at that website shows them making the crop circles pictured. Octafish Jan 2014 #95
