Conspiracy theorists are the new "crowd" to hate. Just prepare for the late-nite tv comics and sitcoms.

I hate that word sheep and what the general definitions of conspiracy theory and conspiracy theorists have become.

It's hard to ride that skeptic/conspiracy fence... It seems that so many want everything to be a conspiracy - and then others wouldn't question authority if you paid them... Bill Maher is funny, but he's not always accurate. That's not what he's trying to do. He's a political comedian.
But his point is pretty funny. My husband and I were just talking this morning about birthers and deathers... How some people HAVE to have a conspiracy going in their lives or they don't feel right. I certainly don't believe all I'm told and I have plenty of questions, but these two conspiracy theories are totally irrational to me.
Conspiracy theorists like to call people "sheep" for believing what they hear on the MSM. But I do believe there's such a thing as "conspiracy sheep", too, and they're JUST as gullible and mindless as they take up one conspiracy after another, as if they're truth, with NO apparent desire to find the actual truth. People who are more willing to believe the conspiracy than to think rationally to find the truth are every bit as 'sheeple" as those they decry.
We're not being told everything. That's for sure. But to suggest that EVERYTHING we're told is lies, goes a bit far for me.
