I don't know that I have ever verbalized this to anyone except in a private setting. I don't like to talk about it because it gets people worked up, and more often than not, those people don't know what they're talking about anyway.
Huge pet peeve: Political Extremists & Conspiracy Theorists
Why? Mostly because they're full of shit. Check your facts idiots... Sure, everyone has opinions, that's great and I encourage it. However, it seems ludicrous to convey these "opinions" as ABOSLUTISM when there is no evidence to support it.
I was reading a blog posted by an extremist/theorist today and he continually quoted and made reference to "Wikipedia". In case anyone does not know what Wikipedia is, it's an online encyclopedia CREATED BY ANYONE WHO WANTS TO POST on it. Sound like a viable source? Not to me... How do I know that this jackass didn't post all these entries in Wikipedia himself, only to prove his own point? Furthermore... it would make it at least reasonably feasible for me to take you seriously if you could actually spell. Yes: ignorance=discreditability. I'm not going to buy GUM from someone who can't spell (or at least have the know-how to use spell check) let alone buy into some off-the-wall extremist view of 9-11 led by an ignorant hothead.
Do we not have enough problems in this country already without some private-sector extremist group trying to infiltrate the minds of the weak? We are standing on the brink of a new era in 2008! Working against that only perpetuates the problems already facing us...
So there's my rant for the afternoon... so rarely does something pique my political side to the point where I must vent, but today I felt the need to share.
