Back At ATS After Long Away...

Hello ATS,

It has been quite a while since I have been to ATS.... busy working, etc... and a deep disappointment with the current world situation kept me from getting too deep into the internet forums.

I always enjoyed ATS, it's numerous forums, etc. Don't know if JOEY is still around or not, if so HELLO JOEY... and I always enjoyed the ATS live radio shows...

I just wanted to reconnect with ATS, and begin to post some articles at times.

Thanks to certain "nutbags" in government, we are now facing some very serious stuff as a nation to deal with.

This nation (USA) has faced some pretty serious threats over the years... the communist stuff after WW1 in the 1920's, when the USSR was in it's gruesome formative years..for one example.

I live in Australia, immigrated from the USA 5 years ago, and deeply love my new country. But I also have deep concerns for my original country and where it seems to be headed in the days ahead.

I am pretty flabbergasted over the unprecedented 24/7/365 attacks on the President, and the over the top LIES that mainstream news media seem to constantly spout these days. I knew they lied a lot over the years, but nowadays it is so over the top that it is pretty incredible.

They used to joke about "PRAVDA" from the old USSR, it was a lot of lies and etc, in it's day. Well, I honestly think the USA news media has surpassed even Pravda from back in the cold war days with lies, and pure "insanity". Pravda means TRUTH in Russian... so my name on ATS defines myself, a TRUTH seeker. I just want truth in all things. NEWS MEDIA is a place where truth is desperately needed once again. That was part of the extreme joke about the newspaper back in the cold war days.. Pravda was the propaganda arm of those in power, and it contained a lot of anything but TRUTH.

The USA news media also manages quite well to avoid, or erase, certain very important news, especially if it supports the current President, or gives his concerns credible proof, or supports his wishes for foreign policy, etc.

The nation currently faces another dangerous threat, from within, in my opinion... when people "think" socialism is the answer, or extreme left views seem to becoming ever more popular. Sadly, these extreme leftists have no clue how dangerous and deadly the "new world" they want will become. I am also flabbergasted by so many in USA government who seem to want a war with Russia and China. I suppose they don't care, since they will have government bunkers to live in. What about all of the "peasants"... the common man who has NOTHING to hide in? They got rid of all of the bomb shelters years ago...Civil Defense doesn't exist in the USA anymore.

"Extremism" in ANY FORM; is dangerous, right or left. The country is so terribly divided now, so much so, I wouldn't be surprised to see another civil war erupt over there. God forbid, please, but you see what I mean I hope.

There is a Mr Dice, who makes videos asking people questions about holidays, the USA in general etc... and I am honestly losing it over how incredibly STUPID the people are he interviews! I don't know if he edits out a bunch of people who do answer correctly, or seem "on the ball" about certain things or not... but the airheads he talks to need to be prevented from breeding..Ha! My God, it is incredible people could be so stupid, or misinformed.

I work about a week at a remote location, then a week back at my home for rest and getting to see my wife and critters again. So, if I do make a new post at ATS and don't reply, it probably is because I am off at my work location making a living.

I haven't even had a chance to look the site over to see if ATS Live is still happening... I hope it is..

Anyhow, I have decided to visit ATS on a regular basis again, and contribute to threads.

If for no other reason than it is therapeutic to communicate on current issues. At least one feels like they are contributing, and doing SOMETHING within the small frame work that the common man is able to contribute.

I do feel strongly that there is an "agenda" being employed within the USA; and it is not a good thing for the nation, and I do worry about what the USA will look like in 10 years time.

Perhaps visiting ATS will help me understand the world today a bit better by reading the numerous inputs by so many.

I can say that my concerns and "fears" from my pre immigration days, and WHY I left the USA have come true, and I also see that my concerns seem to be still following my "scenario" I had in my mind at the time.

Current events only reinforce my BIG decision that to leave the USA was correct... and I do love Australia very much. Australia hasn't gone down the googler yet... Ha! And I pray the leaders maintain some sense of sanity as the world gets crazier by the moment.

Anyhow, I am back, like a bad wart that won't go away..and I look forward to reading the interesting responses here at ATS.

    Heh, you beat me to it. I was going to say exactly that. The sjw "liberal" madness and obsession with socialism, anarchy et isn't just in the U.S., it's all over Europe and many other places in the world. Western society may be just a memory soon.

    Anyway, welcome back OP.

    Hello seeker1963,

    Sadly, I do see a movement within Australia that seems to want to join the "club" of silly and not thought out decisions and policies.

    Yes, I see things coming up in the news, etc. that tells me those "things" are coming here too, or at least trying real hard to.

    My wife and I knew the things I/we were "escaping" (but not really escaping) would most likely visit Australia someday too. We both just hoped it would be a long time before they "showed up" here in Oz too. Some of them seem to be knocking on the door as I type this response!

    Well I no longer live at the top of a mountain..HA! I live on an island now... close to the "big smoke" of Brisbane, but very much AWAY from the mainland hustle and bustle. It is a very nice quiet island, no trains, cattle trucks, road trains, and a very noticeable lack of sirens and such emergencies.

    We are raising finches in an aviary as a hobby, and something that I hope someday will offer a bit of extra money, or at least pay for my bird addictions..Ha! We raise 8 different species of finch to varying degrees of success.

    It is where we want to retire at and live until the grim reaper shows up.

    Yep, the world is losing it, in my opinion... and the leaders are doing it on purpose it seems.

    For example, a recent news item I read said due to leaked phone transcripts, that Merkel of Germany regretted her decision to let so many immigrants in, and that Germany was a MESS....well DUH!!! What did she really think would happen?

    Just one example, but she surely wasn't THAT stupid was she? If she was.. then the planet has no hope. Ha!
