I hear it all the time and then I say well what are the big conspiracies and I get: JFK Assassination, UFO Cover Up, 9/11 was an inside job, Pearl Harbor, the Gold Standard, the Federal Reserve...all that non-political stuff.
But no one wants to call the attempted impeachment of a president on the flimsiest of charges that ended up with the Speaker tearing up a SOTU speech like a damn child throwing a temper tantrum a conspiracy because that would be admitting there was some sort of planning involved instead of a random cluster#.

There is always going to be the odd decent discussion. Unfortunately they tend to be buried among the mass of poo-throwing threads that get all the stars and flags just because they say something nasty about which ever flavour politics they dislike.

I think back in the day, when mods didn't agree with your opinion, they would ban you. Ask anyone that has been here for over a decade. It drove alot of people away.
