I'm going to go out on a limb here; pretty far out there on a very small thin branch, actually. Sometimes we have to, because we're fed up, and it's the right thing to do. Put yourself in my shoes as you read this. Would you be a little nervous? You betcha. (My site was already hacked once.)
Regardless, I am going out there with the truth as best as I can determine it to be with the information available to me. I am going out there with personal responsibility and courage; and I'm taking you with me. Let's hope we don't all fall down.
I try to walk my talk.
Alex Jones and Jeff Rense. You know the names; if you don't you can probably just leave now, because this won't interest you. (BTW, the majority of people in this country don't know who EITHER of them are. Test it, go stop 20 people out on the street, I'll bet you get NO ONE that knows who they are, unless you are in Austin, TX. Get some perspective.)
On the surface, it looks like they are both trying to fight the good fight. Heaven knows we need that. However, there seems to be a lot of buzz that there is more going on here than meets the eye, and since we can't get into either of their heads, we don't know what that could be. We can only look at what we see and hear and read about it and decide for ourselves, just like everything else.
I have done that, this is my opinion. I am entitled to my own opinion. This is MY site. I can post what I want on it. I back up what I post, so if you want to sue me over it, knock yourself out, you won't have a case, and you won't get any money, I'm always broke.
I don't care who agrees or disagrees. I know who I am, and what I believe, and how I got there. I will always be able to show you how I got there, too.
I'll even show you my birth certificate. That's way more than your President is willing to do for you.
By now, the story of Alex Jones and Jeff Rense has made the rounds. I will state here that I am a subscriber on both Rense Radio and Prison Planet.tv. At least as I'm typing this... that will change soon.
I listen to Alex most days at work for the last year and a half; until the last few weeks. I only listened sporadically before that. I have my own space, I don't hear start to finish stuff; I'm working and not always in the room. But, I hear enough to keep up.
I listen to Jeff most nights, if the guest is someone I want to hear, and I don't fall asleep. Or, I'll listen the next day at work, or some other archives.
That was my pattern anyway...until the last couple months.
I am going to throw in my two cents, because I was the person who got them together in the first place, and this whole thing that has transpired just breaks my heart on so many levels. I don't have the emails anymore to verify a date, but both of them remember. That's good enough for me.
A Little Background
Crap - We All Get It
I have been doing my work for over 12 years on the net. Until the issue regarding illegal atmospheric aerosol operations, commonly known by the catch-all word chemtrails; I just posted on my site, nothing of great importance, just things in which I was interested. Then, chemtrails came into my life.
Because I realized it was such an important issue, I began to be active in the investigating and reporting of it. Along with another person, I became one of the original founders/moderators of Chem Trail Tracking USA, the Yahoo group.
At the time, if one did a search for the word "chemtrails"; one only got 3/three results. Now, if you search Google for the word chemtrails - 1,290,000 results come back. I think that shows progress. Even though the programs are still officially denied, they remain active... just look up.
The reason I bring this up is because after about 3 months into the CTTUSA group activity, I began to get threats and insults and all kinds of ad hominem attacks. I have a "threat" file folder. It has hard copies of many of the things that have been thrown at me over the years.
A good example would be emails with pictures of cut off and mutilated human hands and arms that were sent to me with a warning that if I didn't stop my work, that was what was going to happen to me. As you can see, I still have both of my hands and arms, and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon.
Anyone working on any of these so called "conspiracy theory" issues gets talked smack to. Emails, postings on boards and blogs, websites, wherever. In the early days it got to me because I just wasn't used to having to read and deal with such vitrol and flat out cruel stuff. I'm a nice person, people don't usually talk to me in that manner. I tried to defend myself a few times, but it wasn't worth the effort. I don't need the distraction and the negative energy is not conducive to productivity.
It still goes on, I suppose, but I don't read it or pay attention to it. I can show you an example at the bottom of this article that was posted about me recently, a comment I guess because of the "letter" pages.
The post, of course, is filled with innaccuracies. Apparently, this person has not gotten over being banned for bad behavior almost 10 years ago. Looks like he hasn't learned much in 10 yrs. Some people are just like that, and they will not change. Sucks to be them.
Over the years I have gotten death threats, insults to myself and my family. I have had my bank account wiped out after writing an open letter to the Dept. of Homeland Security. I have had my phone lines messed with so bad the phone company couldn't find them. I have been called tons of names, my mental health has been questioned, and I have had accusations that I wear "jackboots" or that I am an "agent" (which just cracks up my next door neighbor).
I am not an agent, I am a 55 year old single mother of three, grandmother of four, that works at a grocery store. "Agent" is not on my resume, nor a part of my life in any way, unless you choose to call me an agent for peace. I will accept that title, because it is true.
If I have learned anything about activism on the net - I have learned that this crap just comes with the territory. It happens to more people than you know.
If you aren't getting death threats, insults, or being accused of being an agent, nobody's listening, apparently. I pretty much ignore them and don't talk about them.
I sure don't use them as excuses to behave badly.
I, as well as others with whom I work, actually use the level of harassment to guage the importance of the topic being discussed. It seems when we strike a chord, we're on the right track.
The louder the protest and negative reaction to our efforts, the greater the indicator that we have hit upon something of importance.
Doing what myself and others of like mind do, makes one open to such irritating and downright disgusting actions from others; usually hiding behind a nickname with no verifiable real person behind it.
And then of course, there's the nutty ones.
Like my grandfather used to say, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." Apparently, I live a lot of my life in the kitchen. I'm OK with that - that's where the food is.
I think I can stand the heat. I have so far. We'll see.
People react differently when in the kitchen. Some days are better than others. Lately, I have watched people in the kitchen with me behave very, very badly.
Let's get back to business. One entity at a time...we continue...
In the Beginning...Rense
As promised, here's a quick comment I found recently, and what a typical response from me would be.
Comments from Reader
"Lorie Kramer is a new-age, fat bag of stink-wind and those blog snip-its, or whatever she claiming them to be, are of the same pungent stench. She goes on and on and on without saying a damn thing, as usual. I bet she still wears her jackboots to bed, too."
See, we all get it. I usually ignore this kind of stuff. We all get it, we just respond differently. In this case, I will respond and correct, instead of ignore or go blitzo.
I am not "New Age"- if anything I am "Old Age". I am FAR from fat, and I see no "bags" around here, except maybe under my eyes lately from lack of sleep. You are so silly.
I don't claim any "blog", or "blog snip-its". I have a personal website on which I post things of interest to me, and sometimes to others. If other people choose to read what is on the site, or link to it, that is their choice. That's ok with me.
This is my site. It keeps me from going out into the streets and screaming at people, thereby scareing small children, and disturbing the peace.
The next one is silly too. Sink-wind? Pungent stench? I really, really don't see how you can smell anything on my site, I don't have "smello-net" installed. I do admit to being wordy at times, sometimes a lot of words is what it takes.
Imagine if you had to actually talk to me in person! Consider yourself lucky.
I don't really care if you think I have said anything or not, some people think I do, and my email and the radio interview requests I have had seem to validate that statement.
Regardless, it's MY site. I can say what I want. I'm a grownup. And "jackboots"? Reeeeealy? That's SO 90's. I have a waterbed, jackboots would be most uncomfortable. I had forgotten all about that one! That one just made me laugh so hard. It really did. Thanks! I needed that.
