As thousands of Boy Scouts converge on West Virginia, some conspiracy theorists apparently believe that the WV National Guard is part of an evil plot to expand government power. Some of these folks also believe that the government was behind the Boston Marathon bombings. I think the idea is that the Guard or some other conspirator would do something bad that would create a state of emergency that could be exploited.

I guess one advantage of making such predictions is that if they don't happen you can claim credit for stopping them.

LESS WHACKED BUT STILL BAD. Here's a look at some bad economic ideas that are damaging the country.
