Well, where do I begin? It has been years. Years since I realized that something was seriously wrong in the world around me and felt that it was imperative that I do what little I can to try and alleviate the problem. It was roughly at the beginning of 2004 that I realized that there was something very wrong with the official explanation for the events of 9/11, with the war on terror, and many other things taking place in the country and the world.
And I started doing what I thought was right at the time. Even though I lost a job in April 2004 I spent my savings on research, writing, campaigning for John Kerry - yes, I was naive enough to believe he was an alternative, I admit it. In 2005 I went down to the Gulf Region after Katrina to help - even though I still had no steady income myself. Well, I can't say I did much - but I did something.
I am happy to see many people awaken to the same truths I awoke to in 2004. I still don't see them putting their money where their mouth is, as they say, to a sufficient degree. And until they start acting on their knowledge the knowledge itself is not going to bring about change. And I am simply tired.
So for now count me out. The truth is out there, and if I helped it become known - that's something. And if not - at least I tried. For some time, I am out of the game. I just want to live my life which is something I haven't been able to do for years. At least not to the extent I would have liked to.
That's it for now, brothers and sisters. Best of luck to you all.

Sounds like you've done your share of activism, and I appreciate that very much. Have you travelled outside the U.S. much? I always recommend travel abroad.
After a good long rest, perhaps you'll come back (like Cindy Sheehan) -- maybe in a different way, using whatever talents bring you the most fulfillment.
Thanks a lot for the kind words.
Yes, I have traveled outside ofthe US quite a bit - I actually grew up in Russia. I haven't traveled much in the later years - so your advice is a good one regardless.
And you should keep blogging - I lie how you started out:)
