Conspiracy

So a new conspiracy has arisen - that Sandy Hook was orchestrated by the government (or a governmental organization) as a way to garner support for a UN Small Arms treaty. A mentally ill 20-year-old was conscripted to shoot children and then kill himself.

That's even more ludicrous than the idea of 19 Saudi Arabian citizens being hired by the United States government (or a defense contractor) to hijack and crash airliners into skyscrapers in downtown New York and the Pentagon.

Where do people come up with this stuff?

I mean, seriously, anyone who believes this bunk ought to have their heads examined. The very same government that can't balance its books is supposed to be able to pull of these elaborate acts? The funding, the planning, the necessary secrecy?

Even when our government tries to keep the truth from us (Benghazi), the truth doesn't stay silent. Even when our government officials try to sneak around (Clinton, Petraeus), the truth comes out.

So anyone who wants to accuse the government of anything as elaborate as a cover-up is simply giving the government far too much credit. Trying to make anything fit into a conspiracy makes me wonder what agenda the conspiracy theorists have, trying to make the government look smarter and more effective than it actually is. That smells of conspiracy itself.

Occam's Razor, people.

Though I am still curious about Vince Foster.
