I've lurked here for years, never posted.
Im much older than most of you, I have read about conspiracies, UFO's, the paranormal etc since the 60's. Most of you would peg me as a "liberal", my first campaign was Gene McCarthy in 1968. I have gone from hippie to respected professional, I have seen much of the world in many roles, I have worn many hats in my lifetime.
Things are not always what they seem, though not in the way you might think.
While all things are possible, not all things are likely.
Hello!

Hello and welcome.
I'm interested in hearing your perspectives. This life is moving faster with each decade. Time isn't what it once was. So perhaps you can share with us how you view the world.
Cheers

Thanks to all kind enough to welcome me!
My perspective? Hmmm
As to UFO's, the paranormal etc. I guess all my interest has led me to basically nothing. It's no more answered now than 50 years ago.
To say I'm a sceptic is an understatement. i had a friend who defined Philosophy as the history of frustration. That could be said of these topics as well.
I believe mankind is inherantly good, we would be extinct if the opposit were true.
I think politics is much different than most people on ATS believe. People can make a difference. My McCarthy experience proved that, the Reagan and Obama elections also prove that.
I believe life is blast! Don't go looking for despair, believe me it WILL come your way! I saw the Beatles, Jimi, met Bobby Kennedy a week befor his murder. As I said, I have friend high up in thr Repub Party, they have some interesting plans. I worked briefly with Led Zep early on their first American tour, made the West coast hippie rounds.
I'm now a manager of a buisness in the legal field that takes in about 7.5m a year. i've gone from NO money to doing quite well, but I have never violated my own ethics.

Good catch!
I love drag racing. My first race was 1963.
I don't race now, but you can find me at Famosa.
If you know where that is, you are one of the faithful!

This thread begs me to ask, "How old are you"?

I was born in 1947 and it sounds like we've been down some of the same roads.

I have very fond memories of my hippie days, It was the closest to utopia I've come.

Like you I realized I needed to make some money and did a damn good job of it. Retired from my business at age 59 so I could enjoy life in grand style.

This year I started my farm and am enjoying living close to nature.

You will find we have a great number of young people that are very astute and contribute much to this community.

Welcome and a hippie hand shake to you if you remember it.
