One of the reasons I got out of Usenet for the most part was the nut cases. The place is simply awash in them. Here’s an example: This idiot actually thinks Hunter Thompson was murdered.
“What is laughingly called “the law” in america says it was a suicide but who’s dumb enough to believe that?. They’re out to get rid of all free thinkers in america.
(Free thinkers? Unbounded by things like reality, I suppose.)
It gets better. They actually found a way to blame George W Bush directly for it….
“People don’t commit suicide.
Guns effect suicide.
About 16,000 times a year. Every year.
Bush is pro-guns.
He killed Thompson just as surely as if he had pulled the trigger.
Kerry wouldn’t have let Thompson do it.
Kerry had a plan.
Before it’s too late.
Who will be next to suck on a gun barrel because of Bush? “
Given it’s useless to argue with the insane, I find myself speechless, except to note that they’re Democrats.
