No they are not put together by imprisoned christians. They are put together by the aliens in the giant UFO that was on the moon when Niel Armstrong stepped out of the lunar module. They warned him off the moon but agreed to make Christmas lights for Chinese manufacturers.

Comment: ok so i know this guy who fits the discripition of a real life
superhero he is a heavy equeptment operator,he doesn't have a car he only
rides bikes yea real ones with engins uses throwing stars but puts them on
a string, i've seen him pratcing in his brothers back yard. he also is a
hardcore mountainere, most the time he does solo trips,this guy can hike
forevever it's like he never gets tired.His landloard kicked him out
because he lived way to close to the vail valley airport, and the military
at that airport tried to kill him and constantly is being watched even
though he moved to elude the everwatching government, they still watch
like a child watching his favorite tv show.Well last time I talked to him
he was scared to go to work because he would be an easy target.There sure
are a lot of songs written about this guy recently it's like all the
artist know about him but nobody wants to help this guy out or talk about
it. I can't say his name but I can tell you his name means house of power.
this guy is really cool and is a good neighbor were really happy to have
him here in rifel colorado,he keeps our children really safe and treats
our kids like his own. According to anchent chinese scribes he is the true
blue mountain man! and his last name sounds a lot like haggia you know
that chapter in the bible. I'd really like to see the government off this
guys back he ain't guna hurt anybody that is unless you piss him off, and
this current situation is about to cause him to loose it, he's a friend of
mine but I have seen the power this guy posseses and it's scary so please
spread the word so he doesen't leave the country, we need him here in the
states because we all know the old men on capitol hill has gotten us all
in a lot of trouble and personally I need him here to watch over my kids.

Police

Comment: I was wondering if it is true that hippies in the 60s would blow
handfulls of LSD in the faces of police at anti-war rallies. You have a
similar rumor about police unwittingly drinking liquid LSD, but I couldn't
decide based on that if this one is true or not.

Comment: There is a cult called the "moonies" which is the unification
church. Rumor is if you drive up their driveway they see you through their
glass house and they chase you with guns. People say they have been chased
all the way back home. The one i've heard of is in back country stamford
connecticut. Please find out if they live there or if they really will try
to kill people.

Comment: i got it from /b/ so i'm pretty sure this isn't true but i've
heard it elsewhere before:

Leon Czolgosz, assassin of William McKinley, the the 25th President of the
United States, was electrocuted for his crime on October 29, 1901, at
Auburn Prison in Auburn, New York. Among the personal effects found in his
cell was a U.S. quarter stamped with the date 2218. The face in profile on
said quarter was not George Washington, but rather a face which has yet to
be identified.

Which is hardly surprising, since the Washington Quarter wasn't introduced until thirty years later.

And, eerily enough, a similar quarter was found in the pocket of Charles Guiteau!

Comment: I heard that the Christmas Carol "Do you Hear What I Hear" was
written in the 1960's and is really about the Cuban Missile Crisis. What
do you think?

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
"Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite,
With a tail as big as a kite."


This obviously refers to the trails in the sky made by a missile falling on Christ's flock of lambs.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
"Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the the sea,
With a voice as big as the the sea."


This refers to the sound of an air raid siren, wailing its doom call to the people.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
"Do you know what I know?
In your palace warm, mighty king,
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold--
Let us bring him silver and gold,
Let us bring him silver and gold."


The mighty king is clearly Fidel Castro who, as a Godless Communist, doesn't care about the privations of the people, and the "shepherd boy" (real Jesus) is pleading with him to bring the riches of Christ's love to the Cuban people.

Said the king to the people everywhere,
"Listen to what I say!
Pray for peace, people, everywhere,
Listen to what I say!
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light,
He will bring us goodness and light."


Castro has been won over and he has brought capitalism and jesus to the Cuban people.

According to some sites it does have something to do with the Cuban missile crisis.

Quote:
Their masterpiece, however, is “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Many people mistakenly assume this Christmas classic has been around for years and that it is of European origin. But it was written in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis as a powerful plea for peace by a man who had experienced the horrors of war.

Comment: This afternoon I was shopping at the local co-op for groceries.
Not one but two people in adjacent check-out lines were demanding that
their groceries NOT be scanned, but instead required the checkers to input
each UPC manually into their keypad. Needless to say this increased the
checkout time from about two minutes to about 30 minutes for those
customers. So I had to find out- what the hell were they thinking? What
could possibly influence them to take such an action? I'd speculate, but I
don't want to spoil the answer.

Unfortunately, a good many people don't understand the distinction between "about" and "inspired by."

Comment: Here is something that I think is false, Nazi swastika Christmas
ornaments produced by Hallmark, then recalled:

http://www.newlincreative.com/hallma..._ornament.html

Not much story there, but going by the packaging, I would sa they are not
from Hallmark. I think there's a possibility that they could really be
Nazi ornaments, either antiques or made by some modern day zealots. I
think there's also a possibility that they may be Buddhist or Hindu
ornaments, since those religions use the symbol, too. (And are the
originals that Hitler superstitiously copied.)

Comment: Concerning the amber alert on the missing girl. I rarely forward
an email unless it is real funny and from someone I know. When I got the
one about the missing girl I felt very sorry for the parents. Since I
lost my son in 2006 to diabetes, I wanted to help these parents find their
child. Soooooo, now I have sent this to several people who I called this
morning after learning of your web site. I told them it was all a hoax
and to delete it immediately. my question is this -- will I be put on a
spam alert because I sent it, and if so, how do I take care of this?

Comment: I've been told by numerous people (and have seen it posted on the
internet at large) that Bank of America is owned either by Yakuza or the
Jesuits, or that one or both are major share holders. Is this true?

Here's one of many references:
"In later years, Bank of America, reportedly largely owned by the Yakuza
jointly with the Jesuits and the Rothschilds, took over Continental Bank."
