Hello AllI'm a married Artist/Independent Researcher/All around do it yourselfer. I was born and raised in New Orleans and watched with great dismay as our once cultured and beautiful city became an ugly crime laden cesspool in the span of two decades, and this was largely due to greedy and corrupt city politicians and businessmen.I guess that was just an appetizer, because now for the last two decades I've been watching the same thing happening to our entire nation. Human nature never cease's to amaze me, people are so easily distracted, so easily misled, so trusting! And all it took was for one sinister man to see that mass media was the key. First newspapers then radio, "ever here of Orson Wells" and now television. I guess after that our fate was written in stone. That is, until now.I've been trying very hard for some time now to get others to wakeup and take a hard look at the ugly truth of what's happening to our nation. It's no easy task trying to talk to people who have no desire to use their god given ability for critical thinking. I feel like I'm living on an alien planet sometimes.
