Why might they alter the videos?
To be right.
Don't underestimate a person's determination to win an argument on the internet. So many people today will invest hours, sometimes dozens of hours,
just to create something that may improve their standing in what ever internet community that they are a part of.
I am a conspiracy theorist. I have been for decades. However, I am also dedicated to finding the truth, not winning an argument or "being right".
I'm not trying to make anyone "look bad" in this thread, only to get them to understand that "feelings" and "opinions" aren't fact. Listen,
I've been wrong before, and I will be again, I accept that, but these videos aren't any sort of proof, they're just videos that people have cut and
edited again and again.
If you want to really find proof, really make a difference, read my first post. There are ways to obtain proof, they just aren't easy. But they are
waiting to be found. Unfortunately, it involves effort, which is one thing that the Conspiracy Theory community has gotten lazy about lately. Everyone
wants to "discover" something on youtube instead of getting off their butt and going someplace. For example, over the years, I personally have been
to Dealey Plaza where JFK was killed, Kecksburg & Shanksville PA where a ufo was sighted and a supposedly hijacked plane went down, and (years ago) I
talked personally with respected ufo researcher Stan Gordon, visited the curator of the NJ State Police Museum to review the Lindberg Kidnapping case,
and had several other adventures.
Point being that I've gone to these places and looked around with my own 2 eyes, I've seen the sights, smelled the smells, talked to people, and
touched things with my own 2 hands. Did I discover anything? No, but I tried. And not to toot my own horn, but in the 1980s I was telling anyone that
would listen that a guy hiding in the water drain in Dealey Plaza could have off'ed the President and gotten away. While wearing a black business
suit, I actually laid down in the gutter of Elm Street (while traffic was still moving) and with a tape measure took the dimensions and depth of the
thing....and this was 10 years before I watched a Discovery Channel special that proposed the same thing.
Problem is, nobody does that sort of stuff any more. Everybody wants to sit at home and create their own myths about stuff that other people have
developed. THen they defend their biased, entrenched positions to the death, accepting no countering evidence or theories, in an effort to "be
right", even if they know they're not.
Bottom line is this- I don't like it when people try to show me "proof" when it isn't proof. Go get some proof and I'll jump for joy, even if it
disagrees with what I think happened. Just don't give me rehashed crap.
