Star and Flag for you to stand up and tell us what we already know.
Your new friend doesn't know what his entire agency agenda is and if he did he would not be shaking up a known criminal but sending out FBI troops to
follow many American and non-American people of the FBI interest.
Of course IMHO many readers and posters on this fantastic forum / website will be under investigation.
If I, who was in University joined the VNVAW and became a spokesman for the group and been out of the country for 26 years now have the "SSSS" stamp
on my international airline tickets which makes me look like a terrorist at the "international" gate of any American airports then how could any
reader and poster NOT believe that their attitudes are not being monitored.
That is not being paranoid....
Guys don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You are all intelligent and leave me behind on that level. Many posters have valid reasons to post and
have better words and grammar than myself. If little ole me has the "SSSS" stamped on my plane tickets for what little I had to say. I spoke for
Veteran's rights (remember we are people who gave up so much for most Americans to sleep well at nights)! Now with the echoing of the web which goes
on and on, how do you think you are invisible to these spooks.
IMHO most of these people are not honourable and un-American. There was a time I did not believe this fact as I was part of the system. Now having
left America 26 years ago and suffer this abuse every time I cross an American boarder. When I fly, or 3 years ago drive across the American -
Canadian boarder and back to America was search to the point that my partner’s "personal items" were search through.
I have medals, two honourable discharges, worked hard my entire life, paid my taxes even when living in a foreign land. How many of you have this
good of record? Not trying for sainthood but just trying to explain that my mind being blown by this FBI agent, that we, at ATS are "paranoid". I
will try another attempt of trying to explain, myself as poorly as I am. If I have problems not living in America for 26 years and never been
arrested in any country and receive this kind of treatment from the US Agents then what chance do most ATS member who exercise their freedom of speech
have to fear???? IMHO plenty, as I was only recorded by the TV station of the Bay Area news channels. Today's Internet and the government listening
devices are a major improvement compared to the mid 70's news agencies and newspapers! It was only Veterans Day Parades we marched in. Think about
Anyone doubts my boarding card with the "SSSS" - U2U me and I will cross out my name but I am willing to scan and U2U you my last boarding card. I
was held for 3 hours and almost missed my flight out of the States which is why I still have the entire boarding card rather than the 1/6 tear off
receipt. The tear off receipt doesn't show the "SSSS"! I was so late, everyone on board clapped when I entered the plane and the door shut behind
me! Had I not been delayed so bad when I got to the gate that they yelled "Run" I would not have the entire ticket and still be wondering to this
day, why I have had so much attention drawn to me when I fly and cross American boarders.
When you are out spoken and sound educated enough for the masses who are listening to you that you are not branded as a wacko, "They" are
John Lennon, JFK, Martin Luther King Jr. and many other's who have died under weird circumstances had something to say and people were listening.
That was then!
With todays computers and internet, I ask a simple question!
How is it today?
I am not saying to the readers of this posting to stop talking and questioning the system and I am proud of my "SSSS". I now travel with my full
metals so that the custom agents know what kind of dirt bag they are dealing with! I enjoy watching their faces when they open up both the
presentation box and open the Green presentation folder that has the actual Cert of Medal and opposite page which is the explanation of deed done to
be awarded! This brings me more pride than the embarrassment when originally presented information with my peers! After all, I saw at the time, what
had to be done and had the strength to do what was right. Many soldiers have done the same without recognition!
ATS members, it is good to stand for what you believe in and be noticed. When a man shaves or a lady applies her make up, when looking into the
mirror, we know at one time we stood up and was counted for.
I am all for the FBI getting the people of our society who have proven they are not fit to live among us and have proved to be a threat, however, to
look for those of us who exercise the freedom of speech in which so many Americans have given up so much to allow us these basic freedoms is crossing
Paranoid? Get a honourable job buddy!
ATS don't be paranoid, be alive and be real in what you believe in.
Don't stop questioning and exchanging ideals. It is truly the American Way!
