The kooky ideas of Ron Paul's supporters don't concern me as much as the kooky ideas of Ron Paul. And those don't concern me much because there's basically a zero chance that he'll be nominated and a less than zero chance that he would be elected.

It's amazing to me what people consider kooky. Kooky to me is what we have got now. To me, freedom and liberty and the constitution are not kooky. Having the freedom to make our own choices and decisions as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others is not kooky to me. Not relying on the government to try to legislate morality is not kooky to me. Having sound money, a balanced budget, not policing the world, and a free market is not kooky to me.

If you can't tell RP is perfectly the definition of kooky, your kooky detector needs to be sent in to be recalibrated.

Something like the 9/11 truther movement cannot be dismissed as silly.

From an strict existationalist standpoint....yes.

But, Romney's point of view on human existence and purpose is based on mormon teachings. Which, in my opinion, makes Romney reach a level of Kookiness that Ron Paul, and Obama for that matter, could never reach. Ive talked to some saying they will vote for him because he is "lesser of two evils". I'm just not sure that's true. I know Im not alone in that thinking. Which is why Santorum recently won and Ron Paul is still hanging on. As Kooky as you say Ron Paul is, you got to see the validity of my point about Romney.

When you are trying to discredit a candidate because of something a supporter believes, it's silly.

The 9-11 truther theory is not silly, it's serious.

According to a 2010 reportby the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks domestic fringe groups, "Gary Franchi is one of the leading promoters of a resurgent Patriot conspiracy theory that alleges the government is creating concentration camps for U.S. citizens." In 2009 he co-wrote and co-produced the video "Camp FEMA: American Lockdown," which claims that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is creating concentration camps on air bases and in vacant buildings to house political dissenters when the federal government proclaims martial law.

Deja Vu?:


Executive Order 9066

United States Executive Order 9066 was a United States presidential executive order signed and issued during World War II by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942 authorizing the Secretary of War to prescribe certain areas as military zones. Eventually, EO 9066 cleared the way for the relocation of Japanese Americans to internment camps.

I was attempting to what passes for my version of multitasking and smell check let me down. Mea Culpa. 1,000 pardons begged as I certainly have been less than forgiving on occasion in similar situations.

This is a rehash of the argument used against Kennedy in '60 as to the Vatican controlling the White House. Harry Reid is LDS, if the Mormon Church controlled it's member-politicos from the Central Control Hive in SLC, their motives and policies have changed dramatically from their former beliefs and mores based on Senator Reid's behavior. There are wacky Mormons just like there are wacky _________ (fill in the blank with any religion, creed, heritage, culture, ect.). I will allow that Mormon theology is more extreme in it's suspension of historical empirical observations than some other faiths, but all Christianity is included in that grouping to a degree.

I thought it might be a previously undiscovered portmanteau coined by a graduate student in philosophy to describe, in essence, the sensational nature of existentialism.

That would be kooky.

With kudos to Lennon for pointing this out to the hoi polloi:

"There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown."

I am quite comfortable while warmly wrapped in the security of my ignorances. Legion, for they are many.
