    Well, that goes on the tax returns equally as fast as larger casino winnings. You get one windfall after 55 (if you lived there for at least 2 years) and the rest are taxable profit.

    Maybe he didn’t file taxes for years, and last week the IRS came calling with the bill. Chaos ensues, and government doesn’t want to admit they pushed him over the edge. Boom, story solved, let’s go home.

    I think a few people have seen too many episodes of Homeland

    But that would be a one episode show. Nothing on TV would use that format.... NOTHING! LOL

    You are aware that at least 6 of the named 9/11 hijackers turned out to be alive and well, aren't you?

    I just watched Manhunt: Unabomber and they stretched that out to EIGHT HOURS. Would have enjoyed it more if it was cut to four, maybe six.

    At least? Sitting on some juicy gossip, or is this just speculation?

    Yes, "At least"

    As if 6 turning up alive isn't inexplicable enough to you?

    You know that Kurt Cobain didn't have a suicidal bone in his body, right? It clearly makes more sense that Courtney Love is a murdering criminal mastermind. And don't even get me started on that Apollo 11 bullshit...

    I've read the theories. What I find absurd some not only find plausible but claim as fact. Different strokes, and that's fine. From what I remember there were some repeating first and last names, some switched around, and allegations of identity theft. If someone has actually found, pointed out, and positively identified a living 911 hijacker, I admit I'm not aware of it.

    Abdulaziz Alomari
    Abdulaziz Alomari was identified by the FBI as the hijacker who accompanied Mohamed Atta from the connecting flight from Portland and helped him hijack and pilot Flight 11 into the North Tower. Abdulaziz told the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper: "The name [listed by the FBI] is my name and the birth date is the same as mine, but I am not the one who bombed the World Trade Center in New York." Saudi Embassy officials in Washington defended the innocence of Alomari, saying that his passport was stolen in 1996 and that he had reported the theft to the police.

    Saeed Alghamdi
    Saeed Alghamdi, a Saudi Airlines pilot, was identified by the FBI of being a hijacker of Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania. Alghamdi was "shocked and furious" to learn this three days after the attack, noting that his name, place of residence, date of birth, and occupation matched those described by the FBI. "You cannot imagine what it is like to be described as a terrorist - and a dead man - when you are innocent and alive," said Alghamdi, who considered legal action against the FBI.

    Salem Al-Hamzi
    Al-Hamzi was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 77, thought to have crashed into the Pentagon. Al-Hamzi said: "I have never been to the United States and have not been out of Saudi Arabia in the past two years."

    Ahmed Al-Nami
    Al-Nami was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 93. Al-Nami said: "I'm still alive, as you can see. I was shocked to see my name mentioned by the American Justice Department. I had never even heard of Pennsylvania where the plane I was supposed to have hijacked."

    Waleed Alshehri
    Waleed Alshehri, a Saudi Arabian pilot, was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 11. Alshehri turned up in Morocco after the attack where he contacted both the Saudi and American authorities to tell them he was not involved in the attack.

    Abdulrahman al-Omari
    Abdulrahman al-Omari, a Saudi Airlines pilot, was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 11. After learning this, he visited the US consulate in Jeddah to demand an explanation.

    Ameer and Adnan Bukhari
    Ameer and Adnan Bukhari were named by CNN as suspected hijackers of Flight 175, the jetliner which crashed into the South Tower, in an article dated 9/13/01. In a correction, CNN stated that Ameer Bukhari died in a small plane crash in Florida, and that Adnan was still alive in Florida, having passed a polygraph test to confirm his innocence.

    @winexprt
    I remember reading this stuff and I also remember finding it interesting that the claims only really found much traction among organizations and websites created solely for 911 conspiracy theories. I also read opposing views positing the case for identity theft by the hijackers, or simply intelligence mistakes, and that the confusion was merely in the names, and that the facial recognition identifiers from the hijacker photos were a dead match for the airport security footage. So when people hear "six hijackers are alive!", they're kind of lead to believe that the individuals documented in the photographic evidence aren't really dead, which of course isn't the case.

    HA!

    I see that my Evil Plans continue to baffle you all! :naughty:

    Until now, I've never told the world the horrible truth: it was me, behind every little bit of it! :thumb:

    JFK ticked me off by taking Marilyn away from me, even though I was only five years old when he did that. The World Trade Center was me trying to knock off Geochem1st, without realizing that he no longer worked there. He welshed on a poker debt, and I'm not the kind of guy who forgets... even though it was less than twenty bucks he owed me.

    Hoover? Meh, he was putty in my hands. All I had to do was frown at him, and he'd burst into tears.

    I'm the one who pre-loaded McVeigh and Nichols with bad ideas. I'm the guy behind the KKK and the New Black Panthers, too. Come to think of, I was even calling the shots for the old Black Panthers. The reason Eldridge split to Algeria was because I banished him after finding that Bobby Seale did barbecue so much better... I ordered the Weather Underground to bust Tim Leary out of Chino just to send him to be with Eldridge in Algeria, because I knew this would drive Eldridge crazy.

    And it did! :applause:

    I'm the guy who formulated the stuff they use in chem trails (it's mostly mayonnaise), and I'm the one who has Kim Jong-un all worked up enough to get himself vaporized. It was Dad who got Hitler, Stalin, and Mao going, though Pol Pot came to power exclusively because of my personal machinations. He was the only guy who'd give me cheap tickets to Cambodia and a convoy so I could visit Angkor Wat in style... and now you know why Eastern Airlines went under, too: not only would they not give me a discount, but their in-flight meals really sucked. And so I made them pay! :mad:

    And now you know why I was in New Orleans so often, too. Uncle Carlos, the Trafficantes, and Sam Giancana all catered to me and for a very good reason: it was either that, or else... they all saw what happened to Joe Colombo after he irked me by refusing to salute when I attended Commission meetings, and I don't forget insults like that, any more than I forgive minor poker debts. I crack up every time I see somebody saying that it was Gambino who instigated that deal, though they're getting closer. Who do you think Carlo took his orders from?

    And you don't even want to know what the real deal was with Castellano. Trust me: it wasn't because I liked Gotti so much... you saw what happened to him, didn't ya? And Whitey Bulger wasn't really hiding from the FBI so much as he was hiding from me!

    <insert evil laughter>

    I am the one who recalled Oswald from Minsk, but it was actually to clip General Walker and then Connally. Another gambling debt, right there-- this time almost fifty bucks apiece. The thing with JFK was a case of stoopid Oswald missing the real mark... though I really was ticked about Marilyn... but I am the one who got Joey Civello and Carlos Marcello to put Ruby up to eliminating Oswald. And the Pharaoh Lounge was actually named after me, seeing as I'm descended from them. :thumb:

    You name it, I'm probably behind it. And if I wasn't, I'm the one who did something about it in the aftermath.

    Basically, anything that happened after about 1961 was my handiwork. Before that, it was Dad... and before that, Grandpa... all the way back to Ramesses II, who really got the ball rolling...

    The most amusing thing to me is this: even though I'm behind almost all the conspiracies of the times I indicated above, nobody believes it!

    Gotta love it. I rule the entire world, and yet appear to be nothing more than a retired civil servant living in Deland, Florida! :rofl:

    Love,

    ETA: Of course, I was just joking up there. In reality, I really am just a retired civil servant-- and a fairly minor one at that. I had to look up the spelling of "Illuminatus" even... ;)

    @KP is the real Illuminatus Primus-- not me!

    No, really! :shock:
