    My reptilian overlords (see avatar) have instructed me to lock this thread for a week while everyone cools down.

    Every 8 years or so the conspiracy theorists have to dust off the old material and repackage it. Always entertaining.

    yeah, i'm all about conspiracy theories, but blaming the Kennedy assassination on Wall Street money barons, kind of loses me.

    I'm about 45 minutes into this, and the occasional appearances by random rappers like KRS-ONE and Professor Griff, as if the filmmaker felt they had to have some people of color criticizing Obama so this wouldn't look like a racist work.

    Alex Jones' little get-together outside of the Bilderberg group meeting was cute. I think there were more people at the 2007 Toybox DX Summit. ;p

    I thought KRS-ONE made this worthwhile.

    My fave thing to do with conspiracy theorists if you deal with them face-to-face is to simply say "Yes, okay you're right. What does that mean?"

    They never ever can explain how their conspiracy—if proven right—means anything.

    Such a scary season, especially because of Tuesday!

    So what's the official Skullbrain stance on President Obama these days?

    I think he's doing a good job considering what he has to clean up. I voted for him, and I will probably do it again. Not sure If I 100% trust him, but I know the alternative is a whole lot worse.

    poll averages and articles - if you're registered where there's a close race, get on it.

    i'm sad that the tide has quickly turned to doubt and cynicism. there's never been a mess like this in history and he'll be lucky if he makes a dent even in two terms.

    after these elections (at least in 2006), the presidential campaigns informally kicked off. so that will be interesting. it's not like there are any leaders in the GOP because that party is pretty divided and unorganized now. i'm wondering how Mr. O will campaign now that he's "the man."

    Agreed. And not just the mess he inherited, but the opposition he has faced - it seems that "Republicans" have done everything they could possibly do to not just oppose him, but make things harder just for the sake of political "wins".
    I will say I'm greatly disappointed that he chose to focus on health care as his #1 priority. I thought a better strategy would be renewable energy as it would have hit on three major areas of concern: job creation, environment, and national security. I think he might be sitting a bit more pretty had he gone that route.

    I'm OK with him. I agree with NT about the focus.

    I also agree with NT. Sad that people knee jerk in this country and very short term memories. Republicans never mention that they've opposed everything from the time he got into office just for the sake of their own agenda- which pretty much ruined this country, i.e. no one will soon forget Bush & his cabal fucking us over big time. Obama at least extended his hand to work with them on many occasions, which is more than Bush ever did. Even if the republicans take back the house do they really think they'll run the show? All we'll have is more deadlock and even more won't get done. I'm more concerned with those crazy tea party morons actually getting into office.

    Since he really sees himself as the anti-Reagan, everything that is happening makes sense. He does need a second term (at least) and I was worried about that, but lord bless these tea party assholes! Nothing is boosting the Democrats more than those idiots.

    What planet are you on? Gallup is saying the Republicans are polling at a 15-point lead in the generic ballot, and predicting a historic blowout tomorrow, even bigger than 1994. Apparently the tea party has fired up somebody, but it ain't the democrats.

    I'm very curious to see how tomorrow's elections go. The midterm primaries were entertaining enough with the press predictions and the horrible turnout by dems to the polls. As a former political scientist I enjoy this time of year, but as a lazy slacker, I'm getting really damn sick of all of the junk mail and thousands of recorded phonecalls from candidates.

    If you want me to vote for you, don't have a robot call me.

    This is a great American tradition. The president's opposition usually calls him a "Nazi." It's a term of endearment.

    I thought that was just the mustache choice of the elites, and once you were elected president or inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame, you grew the stache for status.
