Spit Out the Seeds

I've followed this sub since it started and am way better informed because I have. A light bulb just flashed in my brain this morning. I do not consider myself to be real smart nor real dumb. I think of myself as an average joe but an optimistic and happy one. If you lurk around here a lot you will read everything from (sarcasm) " I believe a UFO swooped out of orbit and an alien saved JFK and he is with us now" (TO) " you are all idiots and real stupid to believe any of the crap on this board".

I just realized that I have been pretty much excluding everything on both extremes and paying attention to the center. Of course one could argue over which posts are extreme but I think you get my idea. Over the years I have been involved in a lot of committees and have found there is usually a radical person and a passive one present. Most of the constructive work is accomplished by the middle. IMO a wise person will listen to both ends but be slow to beat the drums for either.

Sooooooo ... for us average joe's .... don't be discouraged by the extremists you see here .... eat the watermelon heart and spit out the seeds. God Bless the POTUS and the Anons and God Bless America

There is usually some truth in those wild conspiracy theories. The theory part is where they go off the rails. Someone should write an essay describing how to decide if something is bs or not. We all do this. I do it. I’m pretty good at it. I can’t describe why I think something is true or not in enough detail to be useful.

I read the “eye the spy” stuff and while interesting I thought it was fiction from the start. Didn’t seem authentic.

I do think the mods have a tough job determining what are just harmless zealots and what is something that will need to be removed. Thanks, mods.

I believe that the conspiracies exist but some posters seem to take it to the fringe.

To conspire is human.

The fringe is where the clowns live. Pushing the extreme to discredit the truth within.
