Everything is a plot to take away your guns.
Karl Marx was sitting in his garret thinking, "How can we separate Americans from their guns?" when Charles Darwin came by selling magazine subscriptions to pay his way through Cambridge. Meanwhile, William Booth was on his way home from a trombone lesson....

You forgot to invoke Godwins principal into this scenario and somehow mangage to get Hitler involved.
Hitler was on a ladder outside the window painting the house - but that sounds a little far-fetched so I didn't mention it.

I woud say more to divert attention from actual facts.
Conspiracies are the new scapegoats, the Jews that you can blame for everything.
The question is whether the conspiracy theories really come from a bunch of nuts or from the Propaganda Ministry.

No no no. It's all part of the Babylonian Brotherhood's dastardly plan to bewitch us into being microchipped.
The Babylonian Brotherhood is a front for the Mafia, which is a front for the CIA.

we live in a society driven by media sensationalism as an addiction to alleviate the boredom of modern life and an escape.
In Canada, we're having a Federal election next fall and people are in a panic about how "somebody" might use social media to influence the results.
Personally, I'm baffled by the idea that the Internet could have any influence on how I vote. What kind of idiot gets their news from social media?

And our geese will blot out the sun.

That would be the idiots. Sadly there are far more idiots than non-idiots.
There have always been idiots and as John Stewart Mill suggested, idiots usually vote conservative. No doubt the idiots are attracted to the Internet and other shiny objects but I don't see how that will effect the outcome.

Re: Truth? Or Simply Conservative Propaganda?
Phat writes:
... this nefarious digital dollar will enable every user to be tracked and their purchases monitored.
That started long before Biden. When my brother died in 2015 I was surprised to see that his bank statements reported every cup of coffee and every sandwich he bought. And it goes back long before that. Doesn't Safeway have a "loyalty card"? Those were started decades ago so they could monitor what products you buy, when you buy them, etc. so that you could be targeted for the appropriate flyers and promotions. They've been doing it as long as they could.
Any time you hear something like "Biden Bucks" you should run screaming in the opposite direction.
Phat writes:
I DO worry whether there is a need for concern regarding this governmental control and intrusion into my life.
Again, it isn't the government; It's business. The government doesn't have to scam you out of your money; they can just take it.
Phat writes:
... it will also force the average Joe to never be able to buy a precious metal or even sell a used car (apart from barter) without being digitally traced.
It HAS been digitally traced ever since the digits have been electronic. It has nothing to do with Biden.
(I notice that your latest goober named Rickards mentions "AOC". I have to look that up every time I see it. Why do you right-wing nuts hate her so much?)

WHO sent these aliens to Martha Vineyard? Was it simply a political stunt?
The way it sounded to me is that Republican governors wanted "liberal" jurisdictions to handle the problem that the feds didn't handle. (Maybe they wanted the feds to shoot the immigrants at the border).
It's a vile game to play with people's lives.

Look at Trump stealing thosa secret documents. (Not that Trump is a conservative; he's a narcissist - but the conservatives are guilty of supporting him.
