    Does anyone listen to Alex Jones?
    He has a radio show on the GCN Radio Network.
    Is he reputable? Is he a nut?
    Comments please..

    If he's a lunatic, then so is Ron Paul, and if you know anything of Ron Paul, you know he was right about the economy. He predicted the financial collapse back in 2003 and linked it directly to the housing market, interest rates, and credit derivatives. The evidence is out there if you're willing to look for it. Sadly, most people are too lazy and just don't give a shit. They care more about american idol than they do their own country. There is a massive conspiracy going on behind the scenes, it's just so fucking big it's unbelievable. End the Fed.

    Not enough people give a shit about what's currently going on, that's for certain. Not sure if I'm quite ready to call it a wide-scale conspiracy, but there's definitely some bad, bad shit going on just under the surface that may soon lead to dastardly things. Heh, what am I talking about -- already has.

    Not familiar with Alex Jones, but I'm guessing he's on par with the likes of Glenn Beck and others.

    +1 about the comparison with Ron Paul.

    -1000 on the comparison with Glen Beck.

    He's a bit of a conspiracy theorist and comes across as a bit of a ranter sometimes but he does get it right often enough to warrant listening to him. Also has a lot of very interesting guests on air with him.

    Interestingly enough, Youtube has pulled all of his channels recently.

    Jones is a libertarian who believes in the Austrian economic model which Ron Paul and others also endorse. The Austrians predicted all this was coming. The Keynesians were caught with their pants down and are still trying to figure out a way to explain it that fits their model. Oh the webs we weave when we desperately want to believe we can have it all.

    The Fed is evil. All international banking is because it favors the richest while keeping the poor and fixed income earners economically disadvantaged. Presidents have said as much and it was the biggest regret of Wilson's administration.

    Alex Jones first came to fame from his courageous attempts to infiltrate Bohemian Grove which resulted in some pretty fucking cool video footage of the "Cremation of Care" ceremony that must be seen to be believed.

    He has since been blowing in the wind and has latched on to about every conspiracy theory known to man. He believes absolutely every single one of them. He even bought into the whole Barack Obama was born in Kenya thing.

    I used to respect him until he started to get real mouthy and nasty.

    He has some great ideas, but I think that he is a closet white supremacist... I won't give him the time of day anymore.

    Jones is definitely NOT reputable. Many of the articles and photos he cites to as evidence have been doctored.

    He brings up good points, but he's insane and damages his own cause by ranting about religious crap.

    Yeah, the religion does get a bit thick.

    What is happening now was already discussed in a book published in 1992. This is not new information people. The sad thing is the financial industry is holding the country hostage.

    Alex Jones goes against the grain of what we are led to believe in. Mostly gets under people nerve touching on Corporate control of society and religious dogma. Pretty much follows the doctrine of George Carlin before he pass away. The only difference between Alex and George is the delivery. It's all about how you deliver the jokes. The joke is you do not have freedom! You are bought and paid for!

    Since I'm bought and paid for, do I come with a consumer warranty?
