At least that seems to be the gist of it.
At work tonight, one of our regular customers came up to the counter and started telling me all about how the Rothschild family controlled Europe three hundred years ago, and now they’re really annoyed that the US became a world power. (Unless they were annoyed then, in 1708; he was a little unclear.) The G7/G8 leaders meet every year in secret sessions to receive their orders from some other family that works for the Rothschilds. Meanwhile, Bush has passed many executive orders in the past two years that give him the power, “if anybody in the country so much as mentions the words ‘national emergency,’” to declare martial law, suspend the upcoming election, and hang around for the next twenty or thirty years, while China dumps their stock of US currency and causes the US to collapse into “a second-world country.” Since the Army has been gutted over quite a few years, some organization called “Black <something>” will enforce the new order. Right now they’re in Mexico and Canada (“There are more of them than you think!”) waiting for Bush’s call. After all, “Americans won’t shoot Americans, but Hispanics will!”
There was more in between, but I think I touched on the high spots.
My manager was fascinated, and wanted me to point out the guy, but he had gone, undoubtedly kidnapped by the Illuminati or space aliens. Here’s hoping he’s back before the coup.
Does anybody else have stories of conspiracy theories and their believers?
