    John D. Rockerfeller: Founded Standard Oil as an Ohio corporation in 1870. Headquartered in Cleveland from 1870-1885. (In Conspiracy Theory circles, this fat-cat is one of the Hydra-heads of the Illuminati-Zionists-NWO agenda!).

    From money-man to money-magazine.

    Malcolm Forbes: Turned his father’s modest publication, Forbes Magazine, into one of the nation’s largest and most powerful publishing cartels. Got his start in Lancaster, Ohio as CEO of the Fairfield Times.

    From money-magazine to money-machines.

    National Cash Register Corporation: In 1884, John Henry Patterson bought out his fellow investors in the National Manufacturing Company and formed the National Cash Register Company, the predecessor of NCR Corporation. Located in Dayton, Ohio, this company manufactured the first electric cash register.

    From money-machine to ATMs.

    Diebold: A United States-based security systems corporation that is engaged primarily in the sale, manufacture, installation and service of self-service transaction systems (such as ATMs), electronic and physical security products (including vaults and currency processing systems), and software and integrated systems for global financial and commercial markets. Diebold is the largest U.S. manufacturer of ATMs. It was incorporated under the laws of the State of Ohio in August 1876, and is headquartered in the Akron-Canton area; its mailing address is the city of North Canton, but its physical address is located in the city of Green.

    For those of you who follow mainstream politics, you might remember that Diebold was the company responsible for the voting irregularities in Ohio that resulted in the stolen presidential elections of 2004.

    From stolen elections to stolen skeletons.

    How odd it is that Samuel P. Bush, grandfather of President George H.W. Bush and great-grandfather of President George W. Bush, earned his fortune as longtime president of Buckeye Steel Castings, located in Columbus, Ohio. It was Samuel Bush who is rumored to have been made a member of Yale’s Skull and Bones Society after he presented the skull of the Native American chief Geronimo to that organization’s leaders.

    Speaking of skeletons…

    Ohioans have made it to the presidency eight times, ranking it #2 in states with presidential stakes. The skeleton here being several of these folks (William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant and Warren G. Harding) rank among the Top Ten worst US presidents of all time.

    Where there is money and power there is the military-prison-industrial complex.

    Personally, when I think of military generals, I think of the Civil War. Not only was Ulysses S. Grant from Ohio, but so was Robert E. Lee, William Tecumseh Sherman and George Armstrong Custer.

    In fact, during the Civil War, Columbus was home to Camp Chase, one of the largest Confederate prison camps in the nation.

    Today it is the Defense Supply Center, Columbus, also called DSCC, that serves as one of three Inventory Control Points of the Defense Logistics Agency.

    And, of course, let us not forget that Dayton, Ohio, is home to the Wright-Patterson Military Base, US Air Force Museum, US Air Force Military Academy and National Command Center. Dayton also happens to be the birthplace of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the Fathers of Aviation.

    Not all roads lead to war.

    Let us not forget that Ohio was part of the dividing lines between the North and South during the years of slavery. As such Ohio played a pivotal role in the Underground Railroad. In fact, today Cincinnati, Ohio, is home to the nation’s Underground Railroad Museum. Moreover, what song better captures the plight of the runaway slave than “Darling Nellie Grey, written by Westerville, Ohio’s Benjamin Hanby?

    Within this conspiracy, all roads do indeed lead to Ohio.

    For instance, the first concrete road in America was laid in Bellefountaine, Ohio, in 1894. More importantly, however, would be Route 40, also called the National Road and Zane’s Trace, which was the major “gateway” to the northwest territories back in the day. In fact, the one-time CEO of Consolidated Freightway, one of the nation’s largest trucking companies, called Ohio the “Gateway to the World.” (Route 40, by the way, runs right through the city of Columbus, passing right next to the State Capitol building).

    The Wheels of Change.

    Where is all this leading? Obviously I’m trying to establish a pattern. A Fortean pattern, to be more precise. A Fortean pattern deals with anomalous phenomenon in such a way as to prove the validity of some idea through a series of connections or synchronicities. A synchronicity was a term coined by the psychologist Carl Jung, who also developed a theory on symbols as archetypes of the collective unconscious.

    So from roads we move to say automobiles. Not because the history of cars related to Ohio is important in and of itself, but because cars can be interpreted as a symbol of change. Cars are about travel. Travel is about movement. Movement implies change. Movement. Travel. Transportation. Roads. Change. It’s all about the connections. So the fact that Marysville, Ohio is home to the nation’s only Honda plant is important. The fact that Charles Kettering, inventor of the electric car starter and founder of Delco, was born in Loudonville, Ohio, is important. The fact that Mansfield, Ohio, is home of the infamous Highway Safety Foundation, the organization that created the controversial driver’s education scare films that featured gruesome film photography taken at fatal automobile accidents in the Mansfield are, and the Mid-Ohio Race Course, is important. At least, symbolically, in terms of its archetypal sign-ificance. In this style of Fortean analysis, the more connections there are, the more truth of the fact’s symbolic sign-ifcance is assured.

    So from cars we can move to motorcycles, and to Pickerington’s AMA Motorcycle Museum. From motorcycles we move can move to buggies, and to Mesopotamia, Ohio, home of the nation’s largest Amish buggy. And with this fact, being the largest of its kind, we have an anomaly, or what can be thought of as a singularity. A singularity in science points to something. But what? In this instance it indicates two things. One being a subtle but profound reference to railroad tracks. The other being a reference to the buggy wheel.

    To be cont.

    Yay! I’ve missed freaky consipiracy threads that seem to have no underlying logic.

    Don’t for get that Dave Thomas (who invented the bucket of chicken for KFC) founded Wendy’s in Columbus using grease from AC Humko (in Harrisson West) for his fries thereby increasing the net weight of the USA thus continuing a Fortean pattern dealing with anomalous phenomenon in such a way as to prove the validity of some idea through a series of connections or synchronicities.

    How’s that, did I get it right?

    I’m convinced Aquafresh puts air pockets in their toothpaste tubes to screw you out of their delicious toothpaste. I like the red stripe in it the best.

    Find the “Doughboy” and at his feet you will find the ultimate truth. But tread on careful foot, my son; the minions of the Rufus Putnam League are everywhere.

    I’ve said too much. Someone’s coming. I must log off. Godspeed!

    Well, this confirms what I have long thought about Ohio: everything that’s loose in America rolls here. Those indian mounds must must have some weird effect. Ohio also seems to produce alot of serial killers. Beware Count Chocula!

    Am I having some serious deja vu or was that whole thing posted here before? It sounds familiar, but IIRC there was also mention of the Serpent Mound.
