And not for the sad part.
But for doing me the honor of calling my time valuable.
While I do value my time, I don't consider it particularly valuable.
At least not to anyone else. This is one of the nicer things ever said to me.
Back to Jesse now,
here is a clip on Larry King
where he wants us to legalize herb.

I dont know. I think Jesse Ventura is at least partially sincere in his beliefs. I think Whats his name was bullying him. Jesse is no dummy, but he is a direct, blunt, honest sort of guy, and people like the dude who was interviewing him are more psychologically astute. I DO have worries about a Jesse Ventura presidency, because it does beg the question, why is the MSM giving him a venue with which to make a good run?
BUT, I think in part that is because he would be easy to discredit as a "nut" much like Brit boy was doing. I dont think they see him as a threat to really become president, but merely a wedge with which to divide the disenchanted masses and prevent them from forming a majority voting block for some non-corporate candidate.
I was initially VERY suspicious of Jesse Ventura being a double agent so to speak. But I took the time to look up his voting record, and I have to say, he is consistent. It does lend him credibility. I dont know that I would vote for him. He may be too forthright and not Machiavellian to make it as President, but I do tend to lean towards him being sincere for the most part.
Not every conspiracy theorist believes all theories equally. I certainly dont believe every single theory going. I dont think the fact that he said it was entertainment in that context, is really the smoking gun you want it to be.

Against my better judgment, I watched the last 44 seconds of the video, and sure enough your claim is not substantiated in the manner in which you are implying. He does say that, but what he says afterward is an important statement that you cannot just ignore to "get your misconstrued point across."
I don't even like the guy personally, but I will not sit back and let someone use someone's words in a context that suits their interest.
For those of you who do not want to watch the end of the video, he says, "It's an entertainment show. We just use reality." I mean c'mon, this thread has no basis.
