Loughner on War, UFOs, and 'Corporate Prison'

The conspiracy discussion website AboveTopSecret claims that "anecdotal evidence" suggests that a frequent poster on the site, Erad3, was Jared Loughner. The best evidence I've seen: On August 7, 2010, Erad3 put up a post about "infinite currency" that matches what Loughner wrote in a December YouTube video. So if this is Loughner, what else did he think?

It's hard to interpret. The first comment we can interpret politically is this , from July 2010, about the possibility of war in Iran.

Erad3 weighed in on one thread about "corporate prison" with this:

If the children and teenagers that attend schools are able to buy products at their breaks then they're able to purchase the items out of school.
The children and teenagers that attend schools are able to buy products at their breaks.
Therefore, they're able to purchase the items out of school.
The majority of the population will buy main brands.
If you don't buy from a main brand then be considered a cheap low class citizen.

Erad3 weighed in several times on threads about UFOs and the NASA space shuttle. As with every other topic, though, his comments appeared in the form of syllogisms, not really engaging the topic or revealing what he thought.
