    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    that statement is just blatantly false SD... While we do have a reliance on oil (along with the rest of the world, excepting a few European countries, such as Germany), it would be amazingly simple to convert to alternative energy sources. I really dont know why we havent done it already.

    well, as true as that may be, it doesnt mean the US economy will crash without oil.

    but, on a small scale, alt. energy is economically intelligent and enviro-friendly. Having solar panels is a great long term investment. although its a steep initial cost, with subsidies and the way our energy grid works, you'll make that back in 18 years or so, depending. And then you'll be making money. So, clearly more intelligent than paying for the ever-rising cost of oil heating.

    So what? It's clear that he took advantage of a national crisis for his own selfish purposes. This doesn't imply a government conspiracy however.

    the conspiracy was blatantly lying about it... getting no one to care, getting no one to investigate and then getting your popularity to rise for no apparent reason..

    Don't get me started on this. I've read so many books and written about corruption so much... really. All I'll say is that I believe in conspiracies.

    i didn't say there actually was a conspiracy, but IF it was, then it was a blissed move for this government....

    anyway we won't know if there was a conspiracy or not before at least 50 years, so let's speculate !!!

    Okay wait. I feel I need to comment on a few things:

    1) Apparently the Bush government received warnings that Al Qaeda was planning to use planes to attack landmarks. These warnings were ignored.

    2) Bush family is friends with the Saudi royal family, and Iraq's only WMD were given to them by America.

    3) Osama bin Laden had nothing to do with Saddam. Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11.

    4) Isn't a war the best way to unite a country? Bush needed that war to be re-elected since he didn't technically win the first one. Read Nineteen Eighty-Four and then we can have a good discussion about that. XD

    Anyway, there could be a major conspiracy. I'm a fan of the idea... probably sounds stupid, but there's definitely something going on there. That whole Patriot Act is just to limit people's freedoms anyway.
