What more natural indeed that the world's elite get together and chew over how things are going?
I used to be an agnostic about the Bilderberger thing. Then a few years ago I read (in Nexus, I think) about one meeting that had been infiltrated.
One of the hot topics was that they chose Angela Merkel as the next German Chancellor.
I called a friend in Germany to ask him what he thought. He was singularly unimpressed, gave her no chance at all. A few months later (after some
interesting horse trading that probably bears much closer inspection but I know squat about German politics) ... there she is, Germany's first female
Chancellor, later head of the G8, too.
I've been away from these boards long enough that I was actually thinking Obama might be a genuine outbreak of democracy and a real reaction against
the Bush years.
WHAT an idiot.
I actually thought there might be an outside chance he'd be assassinated before taking office. Duh.
I loathe emoticons but if there was one that showed someone blushing, I'd use it.
And to the OP, thanks! Good thread.
