No worries!

Could you please expand on your position on this? A lot of people around here don't understand why I'm so open minded on this, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

. . . Given that this is a public forum and subject to snoops using web crawlers, web sniffers, and web spiders without notice or privacy breach concerns I will digress to the short answer for now.

I can say with a lot of in-between-the-lines fluffy prose I’m retired military and jack-of-several trades. . . . Not very informative for juicy prime time news I know. But one could appear before Congress under oath to testify on certain military actions (give my story as witness while active duty) where some immunity under law might apply. I’m not under a specific gage order. Not sworn to secrecy, though, does not negate my current obligations and responsibilities as a citizen to uphold the rule of law.

I’ve known about some of this stuff – the others – flying craft - since I was a child in the 1950’s. . . Big deal, I say to those secret keepers of government and businesses, get over it already . . .The stigma in support of foul agendas is revolting even embarrassing as a presumed intelligent species as some scholars espouse despite their ignorance in these matters. The presence or existence of the others is not contingent on local terrestrial policies and bigotries or an approval rating in the first place. That’s my impression from them, anyway, for what it is.

It wasn’t until I was active duty military that I learned of official regulations, instructions, and laws forbidding a citizen (or active duty military member) to initiate contact with the others on behalf of the Nation’s citizenry as a human representative – one of the rules 1211.*** or something similar as it was the civilian version. The military was J***146 or something similar (it’s been awhile). . .Both have probably changed for security reasons and compartmentalization strategies to keep secrets from those without current need-to-know requirements. I can say this without repercussions.

Did you know, it was the operatives in the Army and then elected government who started this charade and cover up. . . NOT the US Air Force . . . they got stuck with the charade while establishing a new founded arm of the US military months later in 1947 after the big noise and Kenneth Arnold aerial flap in the northwest. Technically true, too, probably the only non lie in this whole known spectacle. Heh Heh

At any rate, my position: We are NOT alone . . . Thank you for your interest just the same. It’s not misplaced. Continue to scrutinize your sources, though. It’s a good habit if not a safe one to adopt.
