Since I came to ATS I have learned that everyone in the world is a Bigoted, Racist, Paranoid, Gun-Toting, God-Fearing, Bible-Thumping,
Revelations-Quoting, Apocalyptic Republican without a single rational cell in their brains...and that scares me more than any
Alien/NWO/Illuminati/Government Conspiracy every could!
All joking aside (and it was a jest! The Christian Right can lower their guns now)...
I've learned that people are the same no matter where you go.
I've learned that everyone is a sheep, as everyone calls everyone but themselves sheep.
I've learned that when it comes down to it, people are more worried about the simple things in life than they are the big things. They'd sacrifice
their rights to ensure they have a job and can put food on the family table, even if they would argue that they are more concerned about their

NWO, U.N., the Government, MSM might be the Top 10 Scapegoats for everything that is wrong with the world, but they are not even the tip of the
I've learned that in all these hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, each and every one of us still have the same character flaws we had back
Most of all I've learned not to take things so seriously and to laugh a little. All doom and gloom makes for some seriously unhappy masses! No matter
how bad things might be assumed to be, the sky is still clear, the sun is still shining, and if you really believe that it is all going to come to a
screaming end on 12/21/2012, then why not take some time to appreciate and enjoy what you have rather than worry about the things that you cannot
change? Sometimes it's important to stop and smell the roses, especially if those days are numbered, just as it is all the more important to laugh
and live a little.
