In 2023, many people are extremely worried about where the country is headed.  Inflation, former presidential indictments, trans-gender hysteria, flash-mob shoplifting, criminals are victims and victims are criminals... the world has gone insane.  If you don't believe it, think about this... it's so insane, that just this summer, the federal government all but confirmed the existence of UFO's and alien life... and no one cares.

An FBI whistleblower, former military intelligence officer David Grusch, testified before congress confirming the existence of alien life-forms and 'non-human origin technical vehicles'

And nobody cares!

In fact, the federal government is now taking it so seriously, that they've changed the name from UFO to UAP.  According to a recent report from CBS News,

UAP stands for "unidentified anomalous phenomena," a catch-all term to describe objects detected in the air, sea and space that defy easy explanation.

The acronym stood for "unidentified aerial phenomena" until December 2022, when the Pentagon updated its terminology to encompass "submerged and trans-medium objects," as one official put it at the time. NASA and other agencies soon followed suit.
