Frankly you paint here with too broad a brush. Just because a
conspiracy notion is raised that sickens you or me or all of us
does not mean that there is not some good reason for questioning
what is really going on. There are wheels within wheels and not
all of them turn in ways that you or I would not be sickened by.
Circling the wagons and disgracing an opinion by lumping it by
assertion with a bunch of other disgraced opinions is simply old
monkey tricks. It adds nothing intelligent.
