If you need a break then take one, all the doom and gloom doesnt worry me as in life, so in ATS, you need to take the sweet with the sour. I can look through post after post of garbage and lunacy however I quickly forget about them when I come across real quality. As a couple of the owners and mods have suggested, if you feel that the site is broken or full of stuff you hate then think of something that you are interested in, search the site to see if it hasnt been covered or been done to death, research it and make a detailed quality thread. If we all did this then the site would improve and we can just ignore the nutters and disinfo-douchebags. I love this site and check in everyday, I havent contributed a quality thread but I plan to this week, have been working on something but is difficult with work. I say let the negativity go over your head and focus on what you are interested in

Take care, Prove- it-NOW. l can also understand you how feel. lm a recent member, l loved being here with you all, but over the the last month or so it has saddened me to see people whose opinion l respected suddenly start saying such hateful things about so many souls who are so much less fortunate than themselves. Take some leave, then see how you feel. You will be mssed. Peace and love. starchild.

We cannot give up hope in the democratic process, however. We cannot let the country go to violent anarchy without giving peace a chance. Speak out and let your voice be heard. Find like minded people and band together.

Representative Voting is not Democracy. It is Oligarchy.

The Poster also did not say he was giving up. He said he was giving up pointless discussions on the net and start to actually live offline, where the real world is at.

I got to say- It has to be very frustrating being as ignorant as you are. You cant help it though, but its sad that you are way out of your line. If you only saw the big picture.

This is the contradiction that continues to confound me. We all say that we cannot trust the politicians we have elected; yet we continue to elect the same type of politican time after time.

I agree completely. That's it in a nutshell. I had great hopes for the Tea Party until it was almost immediately taken over by the Republicans and "ringers."
Americans think we have a choice of candidates but we don't. The same WASP names and faces year after year, every one a millionaire. Then along comes Obama the great "hopemonger" but look what came with him, Biden, Emanuel, Gibbons, Napolitano, etc.
Now more than half of us can't wait until 2012 to get them out of office. What? Are you kidding? The damage has already been done and by 2013 it will be way too late.
No my friends, even if Obama was impeached or he resigned it is all over. We ****ed up royally this time and the bill has come due.

Keep hope somewhere in your mind : you must survive.

Internet is for observation :

Observe, Orient, Decide, Act

People has begun to orient, decide, and act : not much on ATS but there is other real group arount you.

You must survive, so act.

While understanding your reasons for feeling this way , I must point out a few important truths.
First is that all the efforts of mankind, to advance itself or indeed of the individual to improve his or her situation are , and always have , always will be, meaningless. We are flesh and blood and bone, and our needs when stripped to thier barest are exactly the same across the board. You may strive for a better life, but ultimately you ,me, all of us are just another animal on a planet teaming with species better adapted to thier environs and needs than we are.
Second, as animals survival of the species ought to be important to us, and if you are under the impression that no matter what, our species as a whole is doomed, then you are wrong. If you think that the fall of the United States will matter a damn in a thousand years, again you are mistaken. Nations will come and go, as they always have thoughout our history as a sentient race, but there are ALWAYS survivors. Those who continue after such collapses are often stronger and smarter for thier experiences, although tired by the wieght of sorrow. It is these who go on to forge new nations, new pacts. It is those remaining who determine the continuation of the memory of lost lands, it has always been thus.
Third, if you wish to lay down and die in the muck when it all goes to hell, then by all means close your eyes, turn away, involve yourself in the exact cause of the collapse of the nation in which you stand. But if you wish to stand on the dawn of a new day, bloodied but unbroken, with strength and determination then you must accept the doom of your nation, and work towards understanding enough to survive its ending. If you turn away now, you may find you do not have enough information to get you through the end. At least if your eyes remain open , and your mind remains active you wont be caught unawares when the hellstorm breaks. If nothing else, can you not bare to be witness to the folly of man, that we might not make old mistakes again ?? Think on, this is bigger than you and your needs.

Yes, it is seckening, the trutH is so horrendous it's almost beyond contemplation...and when see it, it's a real shock, because once you start really looking into it and digging and researching, the real truth of what's going on becomes undeniable.

I was in shock for a week after the full force of what is really going on hit me. At the same time, after living all my life in a world which just doesn't make sense, suddenly it all makes sense. A horrible, sickening sense, but finally it all starts adding up, and I see that as a huge step towards breaking free - freeing my mind from their pernicious, foul conditioning.

I think the phase of being in shock is a necessary, though unpleasant part of making the pardign shift to the seeing truth. And his is what the criminals don't want....that we see the truth. I read somewhere that eaks from this year's Bilderberg meeting show that they are panicking because they are being rumbled. Their great fear is that the world is waking up to what they are doing.

There is a lovely story of how we become aware - I think it's a Buddhist story. A hen has laid her eggs - several eggs. The first chicken hatches.
Once it is out of the egg, it taps on another egg to help that chicken to hatch, then in turn that chicken taps on another egg to help that one to hatch, etc. And this is how we help each other to see the truth. See it and pass it on. Remember, the growing awareness of what they are up to is scaring them.

When I listen to a politician or watch the news (rarely now) I hear it differently. I am aware that I'm being told a pack of they don't confuse me any more - and in the case of politicians....listen to what they say, re-interpret it into the opposite of what they are telling us - and you start to get more of the truth.


We are doing this to protect the public = we are doing this to protect the evil Illuminati cabal, and to harm and kill as many ordinary people as possible.

We can't make this public for reasons of national security = we can't make this public for reasons of Illuminati protection. If we did you would know what we are up to.

We are doing everything we can to stop this = we are doing everything we can to keep this going so it kills you.

There is global warming = global warming is a fiction we created to create fear so we can control you and so we have an excuse to further our agenda to destroy you all by waging war in Iraq.

FPA = our agenda to use drugs to poson you.

Reform = forcing our agenda on you.

Health Reform = The next step in our Disease Agenda

Shock and awe attack on the enemy = Shock and awe attack on you, because you are our enemy.

I now believe totally Obama, Ahmadinejad, Netanyahu, Cameron etc, etc, are all part of the same group playing their game of 'World of Warfare' to control, dominate, intimidate and kill the world population and pocket billions of dollars. They take it in turns to play 'good guy, bad guy'.

So - once we have become aware of their evil, horrendous agenda, what in h--l can we do? (pardond the pun!)

Stop buying into their games. Another nice little animal analogy. If you throw balls at a cat, the cat will keep it's eye on each ball as it is thrown.
If you throw balls at a dog, the dog will keep it's eye on whoever is throwing the balls.

They are throwing 'distractions' at us all the time - disasters, political crises, climate worries, mass shootings, 'terrorist' attacks - to stop us from keeping our eye on them, their corruption and evil, and what we can do about it.

See article in next post.

The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists." J. Edgar Hoover

But --- once we do see it, even though it makes us feel sick -- we need no longer be handicapped.

Sutton: "Opposition will take a nillion forms:"
"The movement that will topple The Order will be extremely simple and most effective"

In an article 'A Conspiracy too Monstrous to Contemplate', Makow quotes the author of 'Americas Secret Establishment: The Order of Skull and Bones'. Dr. Sutton:

Dr. Sutton believes the "left" versus "right" split is fraudulent and used to control the debate and condition citizens to think along certain lines. Left-wing magazines like the "The Nation" and "The New Republic" and right-wing magazines like "The National Review were "artificially set up." The former were financed by Whitney money while the latter by Buckley. Both are "The Order."

Dr. Sutton states: "Sooner or later people will wake up. First we have to dump the trap of right and left. This is a Hegelian trap to divide and control. The battle is not between right and left; it is between us and them."

Similarly, in the international field left and right political structures are artificially constructed and collapsed in the drive for one-world synthesis, i.e. authoritarian socialism controlled by monopoly capital.

College textbooks present war and revolution as accidental results of conflicting forces. This is nonsense, says Dr. Sutton. They are created and financed by Wall Street to create a new world order. But you won't read this in history books.

"Our Western history is every bit as distorted, censored and largely useless as that of Hitler's Germany or the Soviet Union or Communist China..." (122)

Dr. Sutton believes The Order has many weaknesses resulting from an inbred gene pool, a shallow power base and a limited worldview. In any future conflict between the authoritarian state and the individual, he believes opposition will take "a million forms."

" No one is going to create the anti-The Order movement. That would be foolish and unnecessary. It could be infiltrated, bought off, or diverted all too easily. Why play by the rules set by the enemy?

The movement that will topple The Order will be extremely simple and most effective. It will be ten thousand or a million Americans who come to the conclusion that they don't want the State to be boss, that they prefer to live under the protection of the Constitution. They will make their own independent decision to thwart The Order and it will take ten thousand or a million forms."

Unfortunately you cannot really escape it. You will never escape the news or escape discussion unless you are a hermit.

You will see something that brings all your views back to the surface, the anger and annoyance.

You can't just get out ... afterall ... you will be coming back to check this thread ...

Hello ATS,

I've decided that I can't participate anymore in blogs, forums, or any online 'political' discussion.

I've had enough and it's making me literally sick. It is my opinion that the world and more specifically America, is being run over by forces so powerful and intelligent that there is no 'cure' for the cancer anywhere on the horizon.

I could list all my grievances line by line, and fill this whole page...and that's the problem.

I DO think that online discussion and news has slowed down TPTB. I believe that online forums like this HAVE stalled efforts and brought light to issues that would have gone unseen. So I don't believe it is useless. But in the overall picture, I feel that for every 'victory' or exposure, one or two pop up in it's place.

I feel that 'they' have us all beat. I know it's a defeatist attitude, but I personally can't do it anymore.

I guess there have been many threads like this where people say "I've had enough". It's sort of cliche? But I've had enough honestly.

I have a business to run and positive things I want to do. I'm going to ignore it all and just live my life the best way I can. I can't be 'happy' knowing what I know and always reading of our impeding doom or my country's/planet's implosion.

I think America will suffer GREATLY in the next few months/years. I feel we are about to be flushed down the toilet in a very bad way.

I think we have a populace that is too apathetic STILL, which is unreal to me. And those of us that 'know', research, study, write, blog, talk...can only do so much. On top of it, there are so many people split in different directions, that nobody is even on the same page while KNOWING something is wrong. Too many splinter groups so to speak.

I thought there was a chance to turn it around, but I'm afraid that most of what we say online is just noise, and it keeps us distracted, keeps us in our homes, keeps us glued to the keyboard. And I don't see how that can be 'effective' against forces in the REAL world.

Anyways, I hope most of you who see through the corruption and lies will make it through to the other side of this. I hope you survive at least if (when) something truly horrific happens.

Good luck peeps.

In one of the Star Trek movies Spock said “one must have faith the universe will unfold as it should” I agree with that idea but! I also believe one must do the things that we/you were designed/came to do. The universe will unfold as it should but you have to know that it involves chaos to find a new balance. I think we are at that crossroad. A paradigm shift is eminent and unstoppable. So I hope you can find it within yourself to “bend like a reed” and flow with the new ideas that are forthcoming. The guys in black shirts will fight it and fight hard to keep the status quo. They don’t realize their game is up or over. A new way is already here and fighting back to find that new balance. So don’t let it get to you to see so much chaos in the world. The old has to go to make room for the new. It’s just a part of the plan (grand plan). Wish you the best of luck! I don’t post much but read and learn here every day. Hate to see ya go! Good luck in all you do!

Since I have joined this site, more then once have I walked away because what happens here is just to crazy. I have hit the reply button and started replies but scrapped the whole thing because "if you can't say something nice you shouldn't say anything at all" more times then I can count. If you let it, the information available on the internet can overwhlem you.

Thing is no matter what happens in the world you cannot stop living.

posted on Jun, 22 2010 @ 08:56 AM
On a positive note, God speed to you! Best of Luck! Kudos! And ditto for all of the positive notes stated in replies.

On a critical note, this was one thread and/or subject, out of everything else here, that I hoped I wouldn't see.

I pray everyone does what they should for their own life, family, etc., and I wish all the best. From a selfish note, let go of my coat-tails. My own spouse is in the same area you are. I pass him up and go forward. Come along or don't, same with family. Not trying to sound harsh or cruel, just reality that we are facing.

I hope you do stay, being new here but not so new to other forums, it seems alot of ATS'ers want you here to help the fight & continue. As I've seen other "exit announcements" on other forums, I just laugh. Unnecessary, unless someone needs the public affirmation that they are needed and things can't continue without them. Just my 2 cents.

Again, God Bless, all my prayers to you & yours, best wishes, etc. Now please, step aside because there is work to continue. Semper Fi

Congratulations, you are now one of us. It's a hard, cruel world out there but life goes on.

The day a couple of years ago when I walked outside and heard nosies that I had never realized were there was the day I almost lost it.

Having been born into a very politically active family I had no delusions about our government. But I was still deeply effected by so much information so fast.

I hope ATS has a long life as I'm a full blown ATS junkie now and would have a rough time adjusting without it a a source of news and entertainment.

ATS has become my safe place to go when life becomes too much to bare.

Happy trails to you. Hope you feel better soon. Real life is a hard bite to chew but it is chewable. Find your balance and all will be well even when it isn't. It will be more tolerable as you learn more.

Much love and understanding is sent your way.

Admittedly we live in some really dark days and very little of what's going on around us constitutes "good news". But, you need to remember that this nation (the US) is, in terms of age, not much more than a rebellious teenager. Growing pains on a large scale.

There's a lot wrong with us but there's also a lot that's right with us. The brightest part of what we are is you, it's me and it's everyone else who make up this country. It boils down to my firm and unshakable belief in what I.F. Stone called "the primacy of man". There is no bomb, there is no army, there is no force on earth greater than the human spirit. And if that spirit wills to be free it will be free.

We may appear like the elephant lead on a string but anyone who sees the string as complete submission or the face as merely that of dumb brute stands where no angel dares stand. The heart of that magnificent animal is peaceful and his continence is calm and he may tolerate abuse for a time but he won't suffer it for long.

A better man than me said that you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all of the time. Apathy has always been the forerunner to righteous rage. Just look at China.

Think about it. A nation of over a billion people got a taste of liberty and freedom and have decided that they LIKE it. Who among the ruling elite would dare try to put that genie back in the bottle? Who among the ruling elite believes that the people will stop there? And we think we have growing pains.

I know that it appears that China is suffering collective insanity at the moment but I see it as groping for something they know is there but as yet can't grasp. But, it is within their reach.

There is much to worry about. I'll make no silly argument to the contrary. Mankind does a lot of stupid things not the least of which is to stand idly by as a small minority does stupid things that affect us all in profound ways. But, the earth has weathered calamity after calamity and through it all mankind has managed to survive as well. There's no reason to believe it will be otherwise these days.

These are exciting times we live in and I believe that my faith in human kind is justified. It may be ugly now but it ain't over. It only takes one spark and who knows, you may be it. Relax, it may be a painful ride but we'll get there.

Well,I was thinking the same exact thing just a day ago.

I have already deleted my bookmarks and plan on erasing my history too.

I read a introduction post that was not a introduction post,and wondered why this person was allowed on here,if they can not follow a simple rule.

I also read a intro from a new member where they admitted they were only 12 years old.

I seriously doubt a child of 12 has anything to contribute here.

Other than copying information from another forum and posting it here.

Every time I read this site "supposedly" has 199,000 plus members I cringe.

Less than 200 have actually posted and 195,000 have never posted.

10,000 are banned but still counted as members.

"Denying Ignorance" while continuing the charade of actual active members

is one of the reasons I will move on to other things.

There are things I know of from my 20+ years of military service that I thought about posting here to enlighten people to what is the truth,but will not.

I will move on to another forum and post it there instead.

The moderators here have become to much for me to handle.

That is all.
