Morning conversation

Actual conversation I had this morning while waiting for a bus by the Downtown Plaza:

SCENE: Downtown plaza. COOLDMZ, casually dressed and devestatingly handsome, is approached by normal seeming early 20s YOUNG MAN.

YOUNG MAN: (Looking at the cloudless sky) Beautiful day.
COOLDMZ: Yeah… Bit chilly, but nice. It’s going to be in the 60s today.
YOUNG MAN: Yeah, it’s nice. (Beat.) So, what do you think of this North American Union they’re gonna do?
COOLDMZ: The what now?

YOUNG MAN: Yeah, they’re building a superhighway from Mexico up through the US into Canada, and then they’re gonna create the North American Union, one country out of the US, Mexico and Canada. President Bush announced it yesterday, hidden in plain sight. You can read about it on the computer. What do you think about that?
DMZ: …
YM: And then… you know how they have the Euro? They’re gonna build the Pacific Union, it’s like China, Japan and Indonesia… or wait, not Indonesia, but yeah. You should look it up, educate yourself. Look up superhighway, Amero, Bilderburg Group, at midday blue apples, space lizards, the real Dale is in the Black Lodge, rhinos as pets, furniture. Oh look, there’s the bus.
DMZ: …

Some of that might not have happened exactly as I remembered it but I got the gist.

  1. It reminds me of the time a guy said to me, “you know, I’ve been crusified 45 times”. I say, “wow..that must have hurt”, he said, “no..after that many times you build up scar tissue and it doesn’t hurt”.

    Wow..good to know. A thick skin is needed sometimes.

  2. Awesome. This is why I LOVE taking the bus. By the way we had a whole lecture about the Amero from our B&B manager when we were in Montreal. It’s all the rage on his myspace!!!

  3. It’s always the normal seeming people, isn’t it? They could go one of two ways once they’re not as normal seeming:

    1. Conspiracy theorist/enthusiast of things one would ordinarily not be enthusiastic about/fitting into the category of “general nutcase”

    or

    2. Amway

  5. People who seem intelligent otherwise will sometimes fail badly when it comes to Occam’s Razor— which, in essence, states that the simple explanation is usually true. I’m not quite sure why that is, but it certainly explains conspiracy theories.

    I have a friend once who totally shocked a coworker. The coworker had read The DaVinci Code and was treating it like non-fiction instead of fiction. My friend, who had heard nothing about it, listened to the rant and rave for only a couple of minutes and said, brightly, “Oh, you mean the Opus Dei stuff?” “You’ve read it?” “No, but…” and then proceeded to demolish the conspiracy theory in a few well-phrased sentences which happened to directly refute the plot of a book she’d never read.

    A lot of conspiracy types don’t realize that the New! Shocking! Conspiracy! has usually been around in one form or another for some time… and the longevity usually disproves the conspiracy. The North American Union conspiracy has been around since NAFTA, at least. If they were going to do anything about it, you’d think we’d have noticed by now.

  6. There’s a brand new giant highway, running N/S in my backyard that wasn’t there yesterday. Anyone know anything about it?

  8. There is a talk show host on a Bay Area radio station that sometimes mentions a North American Union. When the topic is illegal immigration, he says, “Why not tear down the border, and have a North American Union?”

    The Mexicans who want to come here always end up here anyway.

  9. Without knowing anything about the North American Union conspiracy (if that is what it is even called), I guess I could see a unified government between at least the US and Mexico. Seems fairly plausible to me. Not like it would happen in the next 10 years, but perhaps in 50-60. It seems with the heavy Latin American immigration rate into the US, along with the desire to grant amnesty to those here illegally, present the opportunity for the voting demographic in the US to be dramatically different. So things like NAFTA which have seen large levels of criticism in the past, might be more likely to be embraced.

  10. The guy isn’t making it up— North American Union. It’s not around the corner but it has been discussed.

    Google it.

  11. When do you think the Feds will implement the Amero currency?
    Do you think the Amero will be just as worthless as the current dollar? Do you think things will be far worse if they do bring in the Amero?

    What things can we expect to see (economy, society, housing, food, energy, foreign relations ect..) when they do bring in the Amero?

    If I were you I would start buying gold and silver coins which I am.
    Because those coins will be worth more than the dollar and the Amero.
