I read a thread within the last twenty-four hours and must say the majority of replies were as anti-American as its author. Perhaps I have been
nieve. I’d always visited this site for the much needed distraction; reading intriguing reports on UFO’s (the most of which I believe can be
explained by government/private sector experimental aircraft), “new agey” philosophies on metaphysics, the theories on inter-dimensional
