More Idiocy From Richard Gage

Richard Gage is on the radio with Jeff Farias. Most of it is the same stuff he says every time, but there is some new idiocy to point out. The most amusing thing about Gage is how he has this Maxwell Smart method of exaggerating claims, how much longer before he starts exclaiming, "Would you believe..." In this case he takes several claims, which have some, albeit minimal basis, and runs them all together:

In the case of the twin towers we have an extraordinarily explosive event where beams are hurled at 70 miles an hour laterally, landing over 600 feet away. Many of them 4 and 20 ton beams. The iron workers and the first responders discovered that the ends of these beams were dripping with molten metal and the molten metal appears to have the chemical evidence in it of thermate, a high tech incendiary used to cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.

"Would you believe, that molten beams were found in southern New Jersey? "

Later Gage claims he is following "Okzam's [sic] razor" in claiming that the buildings were brought down by thermite. Dude, I don't think that word means what you think it does.

Then, in his bizarrely enthusiastic way he promises, not once but 3 times, that they will have 1,000 architects and engineers by September 11th, 2008, less than 3 months away. OK, 2 weeks ago today you had 403, today you have 401. Better pick up the pace there Rich.

Then to finalize this idiocy, a caller asks Gage about the pod theory, that a missile was fired by a military plane, instead of a civilian airliner, Gage replies to that "All of these things are certainly possible."

Yeah, OK, whatever you say buddy.
