Just a short note of introduction. I'd rather not give my full name for now but my initials are JC, I live in Oz...South Australia, am married with 2 beautiful boys, one 4 year old, the other 20 months. I am by trade, an Artist.

Why am I here?
Well, I used to post on a popular UK Newsite forum until it was closed due to the increasingly accurate information placed and discussed therein which ran contrary to the official line as well as perceived anti-Semitism due to, what I believe was, fair criticism of the policies of Israel toward Palestinian's and its extraordinary power in the current US Administration (no doubt I've already peeved a few off by stating this and for that I apologise in advance, but that is not my intention, only something I feel strongly about and which, imo, is not addressed sufficiently in the context of foreign policy in the ME).

I've visited this site on and off for about 3 years now and have found the information and posters views to run synonymous to my own interpretation of events. I am tired of posting in forum's where the most open 'conspiracy theorists' (ie: those who would have us believe the spindoctors of the likes of Fox News and others) accuse me of being a 'kook' for expressing or legitimately questioning the reasons behind a certain event, or raising issues considerd to be 'too unbelievable to be true' when history is littered with such instances. I've tired of being personally attacked for my views in order to distract from addressing the real issues and what to do about them.

I think I became suspicious of 'the Establishment' (broady speaking) in my early teenage years, not long after I'd watched a documentary on the assassination of JFK and subsequently observed. amongst other things, the way selective reporting and language is used in the 'mainstream media' .. and how the art of 'social engineering' is adopted by Government, Corporations and special interest groups. I became much more aware of the power of covert operations after I'd read up about the ousting of Gough Whitlam by the CIA. No doubt you'd all be aware of that saga.

I have had a look through your adopt a newbie thread. I don't know whether I'd want to commit to (moreover, burden) any one poster to that extent but I would very much appreciate if I could be pointed in the right direction if ever I stray or miss in terms of forum policy or relations with others.

Thanks for the welcome post and tip on keeping up with the latest Hal9000.

I reckon it may be a while before I post in any of the thread's if I get stuck reading them as I have been.

I suspect if I were an American, lost or otherwise, I'd have understood the meaning of your question, sorry.

Hi Asala and thank you for your most helpful information and links. They've answered many questions already.

I'm afraid I'm not authorised to view the Avatar pic in profile page but it's no big deal. I have enough to keep me occupied for a while

Thanks again.
