RoadWacko conspiracy theory that MH370 and MH19 were the same plane. "Then it was taken to Holland. On the necessary day and hour, it flew out, bound for Malaysia, but inside were not live people, but corpses. The plane was flown not by real pilots; it was on autopilot. Or take-off (a complicated procedure) was executed by live pilots, who then ejected on parachutes. Then the plane flew automatically. In the necessary spot, it was blown up, without even using a surface-to-air missile. Instead the plane was packed with a bomb, just like the CIA did on 9/11."

  1. On the two Malaysian planes being one in the same: Right, and to get from "over the Indian Ocean to the Netherlands" they used a black hole created worm hole that only the Dutch know about because Malaysia was part of their colonial empire starting in the 1600's. They just didn't know what to DO with it until now.

    See, "useless knowledge" does come in handy eventually!

  2. And about Boulder, CO: what is it about this place? Another judge tells the AG to stuff it and Boulder just keeps right on issuing marriage licenses! Is it something in the water? Did they Secede from the state? Do they have magic unicorns there? Is THAT there the Malaysian plane landed while it was "missing"?

    I'm actually amazed that they are still the little clerks office that can. You go, Hillary [Hall].

  3. Re: "Botched Arizona execution"'s only botched if the guy is still alive. He's not, so I'd say everything went reasonably according to plan.

    And two hours to die was more than he allowed his victims.

    I categorically do not believe this liar's parade of death chamber atrocities.... gasping, writhing, hurt the murderer's feelings, blah, blah, blah.

    Bullet to the head and be done with them.

  4. A bullet to the head of EVERYONE who still sees this as an "Execution".

    This is nothing more then a state sanctioned MURDER!

  5. Uh sorry Mike but I can't feel pity for someone who caused just as much pain and suffering to those he was sentenced to be executed for. Perhaps it was karma coming back to haunt him? Maybe by some twist of cosmic fate the pain he felt was exactly the pain he caused for his victims? We'll never know. But don't expect me to feel sympathy for someone who more than deserved what he got.

  6. Regarding the shoot down of the Malaysian plane and the conspiracy theory. Is it true that they found Elvis's body in the wreckage?

  7. @I won't: yes, and Jimmy Hoffa was in the pilot seat and Anastasia Romanov was the Head Cabin Attendant, wearing the Crown Jewels!

    Hey, John Travolta is a pilot. I'll be HE had something to do with this too!

  8. Way to go Emily Rios! I have been a fan of hers ever since she stared in the wonderful film Quinceanera.

  9. Have we reached the point yet where celebrity coming out stories are PR stunts more than anything else? I'm feeling a disturbance in the force.

  11. I thought, that must mean, "the Canadian Conman wannabe* as the new racist** and homophobic*** thug."
    (*Vandalism, bowdown b4 war criminals in Japan
    **The Marked Mangarbage beat blinded a Vietnamese man etc.
    *** That recent b.s. flick, pain and gain or something just got the distinction of being a most homophobic film of 2013.)

    Deport him now! Lol
