I lurked around for a few years, "dipping my toes" in the "Conspiracy pool". I come from an old Utah pioneer family and was raised to ALWAYS
QUESTION EVERYTHING. I guess my late father is partially to blame He told stories of some government coverup in central Utah in the late 20's and
again in the 50's involving anthrax outbreaks blamed on sheep populations in Central Utah/ Ephraim area. Long story short: Dad's family were sheep
ranchers from the late 1860s. In the 1950s, my grandfather and great uncles were up on the mtn and saw soldiers in army uniforms and gas masks/
whatever. They were too far away ,( down the mtn a ways in a jeep), and my family on horseback, for them to inquire what was happening. Within a week,
there was an outbreak of anthrax, eventually blamed on the local sheep population. All of the sheep within several hundred square miles were culled,
my family's entire source of income gone. Turns out our trusty US gov decided to run a live " test", and released weaponized anthrax in the general
vicinity. Too bad it took over 30 years to prove it. As a kid I thought my Dad was nuts, but now I am grateful to him for helping open my eyes.
Often wish he was here so I might thank him, but I digress........
