My first wake-up call came as a schoolboy seeing pictures of unarmed American college students at Kent State University that were fired upon by
Americans employed by the Ohio National Guard. The stupidity, the horror and the evil in this action was so huge it stung me like a slap on the face.
I felt something was obviously very wrong with America.
In high school while learning Drafting we found out about all sorts of technology and products to make housing and buildings more weather efficient,
better costs, etcetera. Better stuff could be had in other countries, and we didn't even have it here. Meanwhile, we're pledging to the flag every
morning and being told "America is #1" regularly. I realized I was being lied to.
Our fearless leaders evil minions continued to make the news as the years rolled by. Recall 1985 when Philadelphia Law Enforcement used a bomb that
burned down a 65 home neighborhood to squelch a disturbance at the home of the MOVE Organization; Waco, Ruby Ridge, and blaming Timothy McVeigh for
the FBI (?) building bombing. To see people that are supposed to be Americans treating Americans in these fashions told me something was horribly
wrong in my country.
Within 24 hours of the 9/11 occurrence(s) we read how American government staff and planes whisked many families right out of the country. Families
supposedly directly tied to the terrorist acts. I had a feeling that A.Hitler was spinning in his grave and shaking a fist at the Puppet Masters
behind the Bushs Administrations while laughing his arse off in admiration. There is some quote, a terrible thing some American President or such said
once, about 'sending in some Marines to die' because that would pacify the incident. Finding out people think that way made me feel ill. I always
felt that 9/11 was a page from the Hitler Handbook. 'They' put America under lock & key quick as a bunny, too quick.
I'm retired and my professional painter nephew is unemployed. He was kind enough to reach out and see if I needed some help around the house with
things. We've been talking about all sorts of things for about a year now. He has been an avid reader from childhood. He's a thinker too. He didn't
shove any theories or conspiracies down my throat. but here I am on ATS, I've learned more in the past year than I did in four years of high school,
the blinders are off, the earplugs were thrown away and I've never felt so alive.
and every day there are more people like me who are finding out the truth. I feel this is an awesome time to be alive. we are living through and
witnessing massive change. its exciting, a little scary and i'm glad i'm along for the ride.
