I'm Sorry, But WTF?!?!?!

I promised y'all a blog entry. This was not the one I was working on, but when I saw a friend post this link on Facebook, I completely lost my mind. I'll work on finding it while you read this lovely little piece. Take your time. Let it really sink in. I mean, you really want to hear every nuance and subtle implications he makes in there. Go ahead, I'm still searching for my sanity.


Oklahoma Tornado: Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Hints at Government Involvement

Noted conspiracy theorist, soothsayer of all things ridiculous, and radio host Alex Jones has come out with the baseless and insensitive claim that the U.S. government "can create and steer groups of tornadoes." During The Alex Jones Show on Tuesday, the day after a devastating tornado swept through Moore, Oklahoma, killing at least 24 people, Jones responded to a caller who was asking about weather modification by the government by saying, via a lengthy tangent, that while he didn't know if the Oklahoma tornado "was a weather weapon or not," the government can, and does, influence the weather.oklahoma, tornado:, conspiracy, theorist, alex, jones, hints, at, government, involvement,
Oklahoma Tornado Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Hints at Government Involvement
With the caveat that "natural tornadoes do exist," Jones then goes on to say that the possibility of government involvement in the Moore tornado apparently hinges upon whether people saw helicopters and small aircraft "in and around the clouds, spraying and doing things." Such vague and ridiculous "evidence" would apparently be enough to conclude that the government was involved. As Jones continues, "if you saw that, you better bet your bottom dollar they did this," before adding, "but who knows if they did." 
Sure one can criticize the government, and there are plenty of things that the Obama administration can be legitimately criticized about, but this is just ridiculous. Moreover, it is incredibly insensitive to make such remarks as people in Oklahoma are still struggling to come to terms with and recover from the devastation wrought by the tornado.
This kind of claim is not surprisingly coming from Jones (who recently claimed that the U.S. government was the "prime suspect" in the Boston bombings), but seriously, have some respect and give it a rest for once.
Need a minute? I'll wait. However long it takes you to get your sanity back after reading that lovely bit of all that is wrong with the world, don't worry, I'll be right here waiting. 
Ok. So as I sit here and watch news coverage of the complete devastation in Moore, it makes me want to punch this lazy, self-righteous, conceited, ignorant, uninformed, imbecile square in the testicles. With a sledgehammer. I have family in Moore, family who lost friends yesterday. To use this as your own political soapbox is so beyond what is wrong with this country right now it's pathetic. 
Beyond that, there are still towns in Texas, including Granbury and surrounding areas, and additional areas around Moore that haven't received any coverage at all that are also devastated. If you're sitting back and claiming government conspiracy instead of trying to figure out how you can help these people whose lives have been turned completely upside down then you can just kneel right down and kiss my ass.
So let me get this straight. We apparently have the technology to create, direct, and manage these massive offspring of Mother Nature. We have planes and helicopters that are able to withstand 200+ mph winds, hail the size of grapefruit, and the complete chaos of flying debris the size of semi trailers, with pilots savvy and talented enough to maneuver through all of that to "spray" or "shoot" whatever the hell it is he thinks they're doing in order to "create' these government-made tornadoes. Can someone PLEASE tell me what this guy is smoking?
But you know what? He's not the problem. The problem is the mindless sheep who will actually listen to what this moron has to say and give credence to it. The people who will repeat it to others, not in the context of, "Oh my God can you believe this idiot," but rather, "Hey I heard this guy on the radio and he made some really good points....", and the even scarier part is there seem to be enough mindless sheep out there to make this guy think he really has an audience.
PEOPLE......STEP AWAY FROM THE KOOL AID. The government is NOT creating tornadoes, the government did NOT plan the Boston Marathon bombings, much less the 9/11 Tragedy. If you doubt that even just a tiny bit, then you are part of the problem, NOT the solution.
