a really big case of Munchausens!! in looking back on a bunch of your posts i'm curious what kinds of stuff you read? i have been known to wear the on occasion btw so dont hold back
I read all of the alternative news sites, and Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, David Icke (to an extent - up until the shape-shifting reptiles, which I just cannot even begin to embrace), most "conspiracy theories" where they don't involve extraterrestrials (I just cannot believe in extra-terrestrial civilisations).
I got into this stuff relatively late. It all started with a chance browsing of the local paper in (I think) 1999 or 2000 when I saw a headline about an infra-red technology expert who had found damning evidence against the FBI in Waco, Texas, in 1993, being "found dead" of a "heart attack". Surprisingly for this little old mainstream media rag, the words "heart attack" were in inverted commas. The article was obviously written by someone who was very, very cynical of the "official story" of the Waco seige. I had not given this subject much thought before this, but after reading that (short article, about four paragraphs) I started researching it, and found more and more horror stories of governments and the FBI in particular. It certainly wasn't hard to find info. about the Waco seige, I went to the library (about 100 yards away at the time) and there were "tons" of books on it, all basically saying the same thing. Not the official story that the mainstream media had been pushing.
Saw a bumper sticker somewhere: "perfect paranoia is perfect awareness" and do remember "it is not a conspiracy "theory" if it is true, it is a conspiracy FACT!
Now I have my tin foil hat on permanently. http://zapatopi.net/afdb/
