As with most others I have been on ATS for quite some time before actually joining. I have spent years doing my own research on many topics and have come up with my own conclusions, which appear to line up with the beliefs of most others on here. I was a sleeping sheep up until about 2006 when I discovered ATS and a few other informative sites. Once I realized what was really going on in the world, I decided to take a second look at what was really going on in our country, as well as what has been done in our history. Generally speaking, what I have found is that what I had been told as a child, in school, and even in college is far from the truth.

Having said that, I am actually excited that I finally joined now. I will do my best to offer my own points of view, while being fair and unbiased towards anyone else's view. I know I can contribute in some way as I like to think of myself as a logical thinker, and someone who can think outside of the box.

Well, I can't wait to get started!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride you're on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
