I have some friends who are deeply conservative in their political outlook. They are convinced that there is a vast conspiracy to destroy the American way of life. They sincerely believe that President Obama is a part of that conspiracy. Conspiracy theories have been around as long as recorded history so they are nothing new. The amazing thing is that well-educated people actually believe them.
A good example of how easily duped people are can be found at dhmo.org. This will lead you to the Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division which documents the dangers of this ubiquitous chemical. I urge readers to access that site and enjoy a trip through the ultimate conspiracy.
