Comment: Re: Sandy Hook

As someone with a degree in Criminal Justice, and a father who is a
retired police detective, I find it very difficult to determine that
anything beyond a hoax occurred in Sandy Hook—for no other reason, besides
that there is absolutely zero physical evidence that the general public
has seen (i.e. blood or bullet holes at the crime scene, a shot-out
window, bodies being removed from the school, surveillance video from
inside the school) and the only "evidence" is circumstantial and via
third-party repetition at best. Columbine was a more transparent
shooting, with all physical evidence pointing to the actual event and the
actual perpetrators.

It seems rather naive to believe every reference to this event via an
online article or newscast by CBS. I personally do not believe everything
I read, particularly on the internet. I would like to see physical proof
that any of this actually occurred or, at least, occurred the way the
American public is being told.

Please stop perpetuating these fabrications. I am not a conspiracy
theorist, I am simply a well-educated and well-informed American who
believes that the government is inundating the public (and the world, for
that matter) with falsified information about this event that cannot be
proven in any court of law. Adam Lanza, if he truly exists, had no
motive. The government has a very specific one.

There I fixed that for you. I thought you needed some help. Admitting it is the first step.

Seriously, who has a motive to shoot little children. If a lack of motive is your main proof, well words fail me.

I agree. I need physical proof that you exsist and that you actually wrote this (or more accurately, typed this). The only evidence I have of your exsistence is circumstantial and third or fourth hand. Plus what possible motive would you have for writing this?

Please come to my house in person and prove to me that you exsist, it's the only way I could possibly be expected to believe any of this.

Also, unless this person plans to actually travel to Sandy Hook, any "physical evidence" that he sees is going to be shown via the internet or TV news. If he can't trust them to report the story accurately, then how can he trust them to not fake up the physical evidence?

This is my favorite part. I love when they list their credentials first, as though a degree in Criminal Justice absolves you from believing any conspiracy theory.

Comment: I live in a very rural area. I also happen to live where there is
a lot of meth labs. The income levels are very low here, too.

When I first moved here about 15 years ago, I was told that when I see the
unmarked helicopters flying low that they were normally 'just' looking for
marijuana. I was wondering if this is documented? Is there someone in the
government who will admit that their department flies around looking for
drug labs and pot plants?

Just a brief look at the Wikipedia article on Black helicopters tells me
that the research has not been truly done on this. But there seems that no
other explanation is possible. Something tells me that they are probably
more likely to be seen in spring and summer (never thought about it) and
that they make the rounds where they have found it before.

So I would like to know if there are agencies who use a lot of fuel in the
summer months and there is some accounting method that would tip off a
researcher to this type of activity. It would seem cost prohibitive, but I
know there are multiple times a year that a black (or dark) helicopter
flies overhead. There is no way it is the local police department, so it
would have to be the state (unlikely) or the feds.

Back 10 years ago, large air force planes would fly missions over us
weekly from a base that was 200 miles away. I rarely see any military
planes anymore as there is not any bases nearby. But the helicopters are
still quite common. Maybe every month or every few weeks sometimes?

An interesting note: we do grow plants. We grow berries on bushes in neat
rows, 10 feet apart, with irrigation. We have 2 acres of these bushes
(2000 plants). So maybe a lot of people check us out for this reason. We
could technically switch over to another plant quickly. So who comes by
and checks us out? Are we on a list?

Ah yes, spring and summer. That is the traditional time when the black helicopter does its mating ritual to attract a female helicopter to return to its domain where they breed small baby whirligigs.

Comment: Your information on barcodes embedded with the number 666 is
incorrect gentlemen. I have a book that was published in the 1980's which
explains very easily how to read a barcode and the number 666 is indeed
embedded in every barcode. Your explanation claims that there is a "white
bar" either to the left or right of the number 6 which is not found next
to the "guard bars". The dark bars however are the only ones that are
scanned...the white is merely background...it is NOT a bar...thus no white
bars appear next to the number 6 or anything else. Your explanation is
faulty and as for the prophecy itself...we are already half way there
because it is almost impossible to buy something without taking the number
666 on the barcode right along with you and within 30 years, the rest of
the prophecy will come true.

Comment: Well, you all better be ready for the jolt of your life. I was
informed that in October of this year the federal government is sending
out documents for every man, woman and child to fill out, yes all 100+
pages. These documents, if you are even capable to fill them out, will get
returned to the Internal Revenue Service to anaylize your financial status
and classifiy you. Thats right, social status. Their taking over your life
by virtue of your money. You are now official trapped and will lose your
income tax returns and if that isnt enough, you will get fined for not
having enough to pay for insurance and if that isnt enough and you DONT
pay the difference, you will end up in federal prison as an example and
punishment.

Let me remind you who did this to you, you may not care now, but when they
take your family members away and destroy your life because of it you
will; Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. You better be ready to
fight.

The federal accouting office told Obama just recently, this health care
program is unsustainable, it will not work.So if a worker wanted to charge
you to fix anything of yours and you knew ahead they were incapable to fix
it, WHY WOULD YOU GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY?

Comment: I've heard that Snopes is a site that really just posts positive
or negitive reports of something based on how an over arching world power
dictates they wish public opinion to sway. Is this true? If so or not,
how would I know to believe your answer?

Fizz. Fizz. Hmm, no jolt something must be wrong. Guess I'd better call the electrician to fix my personal jolt. Or just have some caffeine.Yeah, the caffeine's much cheaper.

Comment: As you may or may not know that Michael Joe Jackson, died or allegedly
died on June 25, 2009

Apparently, there are multiple digit clues that he faked his death as
well.

Will you investigate this? Yes there is a "death certificate" a "will",
court hearing etc. There are hundreds of people who are convinced that
he is alive.

Could you all investigate this? Would you?

Sure as my Mom said, he's probably hiding out with his former father-in-law and they work at the same gas station in Idaho.

Comment: Obama as Anti Christ
while I do not believe he his and value reading your thoughts. I do not
think Snopes can hold the all knowing knowledge of who is or is not
AntiChrist. You are putting your site on level with scripture with any
claim of to this knowledge. He is most certainly a deceiver of which some
hold him in regard as a God, which is to their own demise. Some of your
comments are not understanding complete prophecy from the Old Testament or
the New Testament regarding whom the Islamic people are and from where
they came from. Forget Nostradamus and stay biblical. Islam may not have
developed until many years after, however the fate of Ishmael had been
declared early on. He was to be father to great nation but those of his
decendents have abandoned God in Islam. The Persian and other surrounding
land enemies of Gods people did exist and make up the ancestry of the
Islam faith. There is a time of tribulation and very well can be upon us
today. Christ will return in triumph. We are told by Christ that we shall
not know the hour of his return but we must watch the signs. Revelation is
a picture of what is to come as given to John the Divine by Christ
himself.
