Hello from Tennessee. I have popped in and out for several years, and became a daily visitor to the board ever since the BP disaster, the main reason
being that I have seen for years how the mainstream media covers major stories - or not. For many years I have slowly come around to looking at things
such as history, corporate politics, world events, religion (to list a few) differently than what I have learned in my past. Sure, there is a lot of
'information' in this forum that (to me) leans out there....but it is funny at one time I thought all of it was overboard. But that was years ago as
a loyal sheeple.
I think I totally gave up on MSM during the swine flu breakout, as I was one of the carriers of it back from Mexico three weeks before any 'normal'
people heard about it, and so started to dig into it before it became a news item, and saw for myself how stories are twisted by the time they are
presented to the MSM (sometimes the story twisting is simply too many facts requiring understanding being passed thru journalists without the
I also found alternate sources that (had I used them) would have told me it was already present where I was travelling, where it had originated, and
how much time there was to stop it from spreading that was wasted. TPTB responses during that time were unexplainable unless profit was considered,
then it was TOTALLY explainable...and most poingant to the current disaster at hand, I saw TPTB allow a flu to spread worldwide when the knowledge was
present to stop it way early in the game. Admittably, a flu is hard to control by nature, and the resulting 'epidemic' made all the warnings seem
silly. But it did kill people, and it is definitely much meaner than our old seasonal flu, and now it IS the seasonal flu. Not a world disaster, but
still a very bad trade for profit.
Now we see it, the same game, played on such a larger and disastrous scale with the ongoing events at Fukishima. And it seems the major nuclear
disaster would have been preventable with foresight, and may have been averted with proper response, but TPTB have once again deferred to profit at
the expense of the world health - only this time on a grand scale never seen before. I'll save my other observations for the Japan forum as my first
post. I will only say, I always thought I would return to Toyko, if not for just one more night in the Ginza District, at the bar "Nashville",
drinking Jack and Coke with my Japanese friends and teaching them how to yell "Yee-Haw!"
I truly fear I will never return there.
