You are correct, there is a government conspiracy. But, the conspiracy is to distract people from things the government may or may not be doing. This is achieved by IDIOT, our very own bureaucracy dedicated to distraction via UFO's, entertainment, e-mail chain letters and Bigfoot.

IDIOT is actually a name derived for a group of people specifically brought together to create strange...more
