I suppose I should stop in here and formally introduce myself; after all, I am making comments and am already in a few heated debates with some intelligent and informed persons and I am really enjoying the ATS format and people.

I am 55 years old, retired disabled from a sales career, an Air Force veteran of the Vietnam era who really focuses on civil rights, police misconduct, UFO's ( I am a black triangle witness, hence the handle ), and a variety of subjects, most importantly the 9-11 inside job that is as obvious as can be.

I live with two of my three kids in the mountains of western North Carolina, a very rural area. We are not too far from Cherokee. I write articles for the local paper and am known as an editorial letter writer who gets published frequently. I concentrate on the DRUG WAR , police misconduct ,educating the masses of their Constitutional Rights.

I am left leaning although a conservative person generally. I encourage people to excercise their rights by learning how to respond to cops in any situation, and I LOVE to see the cops get their comeuppance when they screw up and get caught.

I am involved in a few discussions here now: The Criss Angel thread, Carrying Identification at all times thread, and several others. I am opinionated and bold, but always open to admitting that my beliefs are changeble depending on new info. I respect others views and I try never to be too hard on others as we all have our levels of learning and areas of expertise and already a few well placed comments have made me consider my positions of a few subjects, and that is a good thing !!

I thank in advance the people here for allowing me to participate and I promise to engage in civilzed and respectful exchange of ideas at all times...if I ever get too strident, just tell me and I will back off and apologize. I NEVER want to lower the bar; raising it ensures that the future ATS will be even better than it is now, and that is saying something !!
