Busted governments can't afford to hire anyone, they charge it.

ACLU law suites against these

ACLU law suites against these practices are necessary.

Lawsuits perhaps. Don't

Lawsuits perhaps. Don't depend on the ACLU. Don't depend on justice from the courts. The courts are organs of the State after all.

There are people who genuinely believe in McCain, war, etc. These people are in a state of denial but they are not paid trolls.
I think 9-11 was a number of Saudi terrorists. However, I think the real conspiracy is how Afghanistan and Iraq got attacked instead of Saudi Arabia !!!????. I think none of these people were Afganis or Iraqis.

That's true but unfortunately

That's true but unfortunately that doesn't describe Granger who seems to have done a 360* on the issue of Israel :(

Yea and

rhysw and mad23 I would add to the list, also there are a number of people on here that defend the Government official 9/11 conspiracy theory, those people are suspect.

I am not sure one way or the

I am not sure one way or the other, but you can tell the shills from their ad hominem style and attempts to belittle and shut down debate.

I do know this, if there was really nothing nefarious about 9/11, then they wouldn't use the tactic of denigrating 'truthers'.

If someone says Santa Claus is real there is no concerted media campaign to mock 'Clausers'.

If something really doesn't exist or didn't happen, you don't go to the energy to discredit them. Even UFO people don't get that treatment. But admit a suspicion about shenanigans around 9/11, and boy howdy.

It's the response of TPTB that is, to me, the best evidence that something is up with 9/11. If there was really nothing going on they wouldn't spend all that energy.

Though over time it has become clear to me that any governments job is to lie. If it tells the truth it's only on accident or to further a greater lie. The truth doesn't need government's help. If something is safe, the government doesn't need to convince you. If something is dangerous, the government doesn't need to convince you.

And for certain.. if Fox and NPR agree on some point, you know for damned sure it's a whopper:D

It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself - Thomas Jefferson

Granger, indeed

and yes that dude mad23 got mad troll skills LOL. I didn't pick up on rhysw though, but I will check it out.
