As a confessed 'lurker' for several years now, thanks be due to all who contribute. The insight, information, open debate and constant
'real-time' reporting keeps me coming back. I am not heavily, formally educated, however life tends to offer its own lessons and i have experienced
many. With both humility and the desire to share, my opinions are often based on said experience. Am a seeker of truth (wherever it be), no longer
religiously affiliated yet, highly spiritual, am an animal-lover and a feline assistant to a TNR release location, am currently unemployed without
benefits and am fed up with the entire situation we have the audacity to call, life.
Please do not misunderstand, i am dismayed, disgusted, disheartened and completely disillusioned by all i used to hold dear (like most Americans these
days) -- however, i still have great faith in the ability of humans to correct our failures and achieve better. With 6+billion ppl in this world,
there is equally as many ways, reasons, opinions and methods to doing and saying Everything ... with this in mind, i seldom profess to be 'right' or
'wrong', just opinionated and (usually) firm in them ... i have been known to change my opinion given facts previously unknown and welcome any good
debate. i mean no offense by my commentary, but am often, brutally honest.
Should you welcome my input, thank you in advance. Should you challenge my input, be prepared ... i travel with facts and consider myself an
independent thinker. Rhetoric and propaganda don't get far with me. Guess this is partly why i decided to join, the level of dis-information being
distributed is unlike anything i've ever seen in my lifetime (a few decades, anyway) and the absorption rate of said material flat out scares me.
Am attached to 2 youth currently serving in US military, one overseas and wish both were back home, yesterday. As much as i support them and everyone
in harms way, i do not support the MIC or its contributing factions. I'm not afraid to say i love my country because i do, however, my country
isn't what is wrong in the world (IMHO, none of them are really), just the people and the religions running them.
thanks to all for making and keeping this site available, interesting, current, enlightening, humorous and necessary. It is my humble belief that We
are the answers We seek. May we achieve a greater understanding which will encourage life to blossom once again.
ps: in case anyone is wondering ... i chose this moniker in light of the current TSA abuses. i chose it because remembering is necessary. i chose it
because the heroes within, shall never be forgotten.
