When I first found ATS, I wasn't particularly interested in following politics that closely, I was just too busy.
I enjoyed watching all the youtube video links in the ufo forums, fragile earth, the weird John Lear type stories... all the stuff that was actually
fun to read.
Over time, as a consequence, I'd see an argument heating up, and, if interested, do a little looking around to see which was actually true. Most
times I wouldn't join the conversation, even if I found the answer, because I had little overall knowledge of the players, or how things went down,
in the broader sense.
I knew some, let's face it, I'm old... just not in great detail.
Slowly, as I clicked on link after link, and found myself looking through the texts of house bills, executive orders, budgets, roll calls, and
anything else available, I started to see how screwed we really are.
Somewhere along the line I became less interested in the topics that brought me here, but this is where it ends.
I'm no longer going to participate, in any way, in any political conversation here, if I can help it.
Only by posting this, can I employ other members here help me do it. All you have to do is call me on it, it's that simple.
I miss my imagination, and the wonder I used to enjoy.
I'll keep reading, because I still yearn for the truth, but I'm not going to find myself making that extra little comment to pull out a response. I
was never like that before. I even came up with a little experiment, which I'll keep to myself, but has given me some interesting results this
Hold me to it people, and mark my words, for this is truly political madness.
Oh, it doesn't mean I wont toss around that occasional star or flag.
