28. I think the corporate-owned news media propaganda organs are the ones who

try hardest to ridicule so-called 'conspiracy theories.'

Out in the real world, I'm not surprised to find that quite a number of people think:
1. 9/11 was an inside job
2. The international bankers had a hand in killing the Kennedys
3. The international bankers had a hand in killing Lincoln
4. The international bankers had a hand in killing McKinley
5. Wall Street bankers had a 'come to Jesus' meeting with Obama upon him taking office so he'd be clear on what they would and would not allow him to do
6. Marijuana's a Schedule 1 substance not because anyone actually believes that, but because there's lots of money to be made in private prisons and the drug war in general
7. The invasion of Iraq was because we wanted their oil
8. The DOJ didn't prosecute Wall Street bankers because money changed hands, and threats were issued (by the bankers) in the right places
9. Big oil has funded a few spurious 'studies' on global warming with the goal of sowing just a little doubt; they all know global warming exists and we're causing it
10. The NRA called up radio hate show hosts and gave them talking points about how Obama will take your guns, thus dramatically raising gun sales

Oh, and let's not forget the REAL biggie:

11. So-called 'free trade' agreements are part of an agenda whereby international bankers plan to effectively take away the sovereign power of nation states and replace that power with an oligarchic new world order. Bush (HW) even used the term 'new world order' once. The media downplayed it, but...

In the minds of many people I've met, these aren't conspiracy 'theories,' but are considered quite real conspiracies.

Kinda strange DU has banned CT. BTW, I've seen some threads that I would lump into the 'conspiracy theory' pot stand up here without anyone saying anything. Maybe it's only certain ones...
