Scared Monkeys is a phrase that is apt in today’s United States.
The majority of the population lives in fear of knowing what is happening.

So they…
Hear No evil.
Speak No Evil.
See No evil.

And then live their lives in ignorance, thinking all is well and the world will go along fine. The paycheck will come in every 15th and 30th, even though the company is losing money. Social Security will take care of me, even though it is supposed to go broke someday. Politicians will take care of my needs, even though I don’t know who they are or what they are doing, they have my best interests in hand.

So let’s kiss the wife, open a beer, turn on Entertainment Tonight, and relax. Life is okay.

That is the genesis of Scared Monkeys, because deep in all hearts is fear. That is why we do not look.
Fortunately, I have the annoying habit of looking and asking why?

As 9/11 proved, when really bad things happen the TV goes on the news, people do get scared but also angry. And for a short time while FoxNews or CNN is on, the antenna goes up and they are interested. And all of us who have been following the news need to be ready to tell the correct story. ________

I think that we have maintained this principle.

Back when we started , the very first incarnation, which was a total of 7 posts back in 2003, that was our very first post.

Thank you all for keeping with these ideals.


This site is great.  Thanks for making it happen.  I've been addicted to the news since 911.  The only reason the tv gets turned off in my house these days is because the man put his foot down when it's time to sleep...lol.

Thanks every one for the kind words.

We are committed till we are committed to helping others. But we are nothing but a couple of blabbering fools without you the members of Scared Monkeys. Your view points, tips, comments, and personalities are what makes this site.

That, combined with the leadership provided by Cat, RB, and Absolut in these forums are making this site a  wonderful place.

So to all, thank you very much. We will work to earn you respect.

Tom and Red


Who cares who came first as long as we go together!

Hey Tom and Red, can you say which came first, THE MONKIES OR THE JUNKIES????
