Conspiracy Theory

One definition for conspiracy is: an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.

Back in my younger days, I read a book called "Captains and the Kings," by Taylor Caldwell, published in 1983. It's the first time I remember being exposed and believing in a conspiracy theory. I think someone said it was "loosely based" on the Kennedy family, poor immigrant from Ireland, coming to the U.S., wants one of his sons to become the first Catholic president. Yup, I could see the similarities as I read it.

Anyway, part of the book had to do with a secret group of high-powered men who basically met together to plan what countries would have wars, strong economies, economic downturns, etc.

CONSPIRACY!!! (Da-du-dummmm)

I started watching the show "V" on ABC back in the fall or winter. (I can never get all these multiple TV seasons straight anymore.) For those of you not familiar with the show, "V" stands for Visitors. They arrive (actually hovering) over major cities in the world and basically tell everyone they want to be our friends. But They Lie! They want to take over my planet Earth and get this...some Visitors have been living among us all this time! YIKES!

It was driving me crazy (short drive :) because I kept trying to guess who were the Visitors who had been on Earth for years just waiting for the rest of their crew to arrive. (By the way, to add to my level of anxiety confusion some of the Visitors already in our communities, were Good People Visitors. And after a couple shows I began thinking everyone on the show was a Bad Visitor!!! I was wrong of course but everyone sure did look suspicious.

CONSPIRACY!!!

The show took a break. I did too. It came back on. I haven't watched it since. Too stressful for me.

Click to read what The Meanest Mom wrote in her post about No TV Week/School District on Strike. It's a must read! Then come back...I'll wait...

CONSPIRACY!!!

You know I don't believe in coincidences! I chalk it up to another Evil Plot which I'm adding to my List of Conspiracy Theories. Watch out World...I'm keeping my eye(s) on you!

Now I'm going to walk away from my computer very slowly...backwards....
