And now all l do is comment on politics.

I try and avoid it,. But nope, ropes me in every time.

Can I avoid posting for 2 days?

And why is it such a huge topic these days?

Pretty much the same for me except add cryptozoology/sasquatch stuff. It's still out there but politics is difficult to avoid these days. Even when I try to there is somebody in the family or work talking about it. One reason the left started dogging Trump from day one and even before we had HRC media blitz. Been easily 4 years straight and on every miss they keep doubling down it's pathetic.

sorry to turn your political rant thread political but it is one reason.

Same here, just the nature of the site, conspiracy turns into politics and ends up going off on a tangent, the site does have dedicated forum's but how many of us don't go beyond the first page or simply click on new topics and end up going into threads we never even came to the site for.

It is really not the sites nature therefore but our own, we are victims of our own chaotic mind's and the nature of the world in which we live, this site provides a silent (because we and the few like us are the only one's really reading these) sounding box for our often pent up rage, curiosity and search for answers (which we won't find here or on any other conspiracy site but we will find like minded questors whom have also been side tracked).

UFO's play into secret government, play into politics, play into current politics and play into the world stage, everything is connected in some way, conspiracy theory find's those threads, even if they are not real, and makes a road map out of them, pretty soon a UFO guy end's up on a political forum arguing right or left against the world.

There are still good UFO threads every now and then, Not seen a decent DUMB thread for a while those are out of fashion, secret government threads have been swallowed by the real world crisis all our nations are currently in and the several impending wars that may happen and the upcoming elections in umpteen different country's.

I came here pretty sane (maybe not completely) BUT having been here for a while? haha.

Its so hot right now because the most powerful nation on earth is close to falling in hands of crazy , unhinged leftists. 2020 is the year we see their true colors and what lengths they will go to for power...

after trump wins in nov. the interest in politics will fade...


it's game 7 playoffs . series tied. Last end of the stretch.

It is fantastically polarizing.

I’ve spent the last 3 days catching up on ancient threads. The ones that made this place great!

I don’t blame the site for changing. It had to evolve. Look where we are — 2020 the eternal sh!t show.

Current politics are non stop conspiracies these days.

It’s not my cup of tee. However, it is what’s staring us in the face.

I prefer historical threads. The problem is, big sh!t is happening now....

I think it is unbelievable that the collapse of Western society doesn't interest you.

Edit:

I avoid this place for days at a time.

I catch up when I feel it necessary. That said, I am frequent enough to not be out of the loop much here.

I don't always participate. Sometimes that's enough when I need to cool off a while.

I've been lurking in one shape or form since 2005ish, back then I remember heaps of threads were still on 9-11 and there was a giant conspiracy about FEMA Camps/trains being secretly built.(Would have been perfect during the current COVID times...) Something about an Iran war too can't remember much else.

Sometimes my phone just changes words as I type. I don't always catch it. Makes it look like I'm typing out my stroke.

Meh... Blurry Bigfoot pictures are just not going to cut it...

The Navy ufo videos were birds.

The twin towers had planes flown into them, not missiles.

Epstein didn't kill himself...

Isn't that like saying home shopping channels ruined cable TV?

Garbage conspiracy theories ruined conspiracy theories.

Answers in detail, with all unabridged evidence that is still available on the internet, from both sides of the argument.
