Truthers get TV show.

Truthers, the nuts that I have often maligned on this blog, are back. Like a rash, they won't stay away, despite the cure being the facts. 

In today's report on the Truthers, we're going to the Television Channel known as FX for a story on an actor who is also a nut. I know, what are the odds right? The show is Rescue Me

A coming episode of the acclaimed FX drama “Rescue Me” will tackle what may sound like a far-fetched plot line: that the attacks of Sept. 11 were an “inside job.” The actor who espouses the theories on camera, it turns out, also subscribes to them in real life.

In the episode, Mr. Sunjata’s character delivers a two-minute monologue for a French journalist describing a “neoconservative government effort” to control the world’s oil, drastically increase military spending and “change the definition of pre-emptive attack.” To put it into action, he continues, “what you need is a new Pearl Harbor. That’s what they said they needed.”

A two minute monologue on the grand neo-conservative plan. OK. Sunjata, here is the deal. Let's for the sake of argument say that the attacks on 9-11 were an inside job. I'm going to imagine that little old me, a no n college educated insider is in the meeting. 

I'm sitting in a dark conference room. We're discussing the way to attack our nation. It's a political exercise, and we're working towards our political goals, of maximum control. It's a neo-conservative plan run by two oil men. Two oil men who know that we have oil here in the US, and that we aren't allowed to drill for it. Two oil men who know that the companies they used to run, and are still stockholders in would benefit from new refineries, we haven't built any since the 1970's. 

These two oilmen know that there isn't a group that could effectively block legislation allowing such things if a major refinery was attacked. Thus harming our nation short term, by attacking it's true lifeblood, oil and gasoline. Increasing the profits of the oil companies and allowing these oil men to not only launch their war against brown people,(the way the Liberals see everyone is color first after all) but also allowing them to destroy all environmentalist wacko objections to drilling and refinery construction with new legislation putting this vital national interest as part of a national security reformation bill. 

To be smart, they would also push for energy independence, after all, unlike Al Gore, Bush had put green technologies into his house at Crawford Texas. They would toss the solar and wind people a bone to be sure. 

So instead of attacking the World Trade Center, a target that is less important than it would appear from a strategic standpoint, or perhaps in addition to it. They would attack a major refinery in either Louisiana or Texas. This would put the economic pinch on everyone, and make everyone angry every time they tried to fill up their cars. It's brilliant, and I'm just a lowly rural American in Georgia and I saw it instantly?

Sunjata, or perhaps I should call him Nutjoba, are you really dumb enough to believe that crap? You truthers, you need a life, seriously. Nutjoba, I could come up with a better conspiracy in five minutes that would accomplish all the goals supposedly lain at the feet of the Machiavellian Rove and company after years. I did Demolitions in the Army. I blew things up. I've used about every type of explosive in one form or another. It wasn't a demolition job. 

The target is all wrong for anyone who truly understands what makes the economy really work. It's not Wall Street, but oil street that keeps this economy moving every day. The selection of targets was done by people who truly do not understand how the nation works. Instead of the Pentagon, anyone with a modicum of knowledge on how things really work here would have selected another target. 

Perhaps Fort Meade. The home of the NSA and all their evil activities? Perhaps the CIA headquarters, or better yet, The USAMRID facility. Where literally hundreds of extremely virulent strains of disease and plague are stored and studied. If that facility was breached, and the virus's like Ebola released into the air, the fear and terror would be greater than it was. As would be the anger of the people. The President could claim it was an attack of a Special Nature, qualified by the use of Biological Warfare elements in the attack. Thus allowing this trigger happy cowboy to use Nukes at will. 

The conspiracy theory fails dramatically. Partially because the supposed goals for the Neo-Con's are better served by other targets, practically any other target. 

Nutjoba, I won't threaten to boycott your show, because I already never watch it. I'd never heard of it until this news story. I rarely watch TV. Only occasionally watching the Discovery, History, or Animal channel, in addition to Fox News of course. Entertainment TV is not very entertaining to me. I'd rather watch something that I can learn from, instead of something I can go numb watching. In the mean time, I'd suggest you take that overly developed sense of Cynicism, and reign it in with a dose of common sense. Apply Occam's razor to the problem, and you'll find your nutjob conspiracy theories fall by the wayside rather quickly. 

For the rest of you Truthers, move out of your Parent's basement, get a job, get a life.
