Conspiracy Theory In the Making

leave a comment »

Dec 8: Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich has all state agencies suspend business with Bank of America, in retaliation for their decision to withdraw financing from a distressed local manufacturer.

Dec 9: Blagojevich is arrested on federal corruption charges, for “attempting to sell appointment to a U.S. Senate seat”.

Need more proof than this that the banks secretly rule the country?  Just look at the bailout.  Need more evidence still?  Well, you’ve got enough, forget about evidence and look into your gut.

What are others saying?  Dilbert creator Scott Adams says that the corruption charges are not fabricated, and the fact that a Senate seat can (almost) be bought is itself evidence that conspiracy theories are not so far-fetched.  Career conspiracy theorists at Infowars echo my idea, throwing in links to other conspiracies as well.

I guess the Feds will be coming after us next.

Universal Grade Change Form

Found here.  I’m seriously thinking about using this.

The problem is that the professors who give me bad grades are also the professors with no sense of humor.
