Hegelian Principal, Sound at all familiar?

Think now... The methods explained further in the attached examples (at the bottom) have been used more times than Elizabeth Taylor has been married....

What happens here is; (Step #1) a physical and emotional "disaster", claimed by our government or vested interested party to have been caused by "false flag" (examples; "terrorists", or a "Virus").

Then, (Step #2) the fabricated "story" (usually twisted truth or out right lies... ) run endlessly in print and (more plausibly dramatic) visually on the "news", supported by dimwitted drones and paid puppets (propaganda).

Thus, (Step #3) a solution (examples; "war on terrorism", or "war on Aids") to rally the general public (ignorant of the truth) to let the government (and all agencies at her disposal) "do anything necessary". Create the outcry to "save us"

In doing so, "We the people...", loose more rights, freedoms, and health to a government of criminalization and fascism through dictatorship of relatively few greedy, power hungry psychopaths.

Ummm, ... did I say that out loud?

So, you say you love your pet

My friends,

So, you say you love your pet? You play with them, give them hours of love and attention and they reciprocate. These actions are responsible and self evident as would be the evidence of abuse is difficult to deny.

But, are you finding a "convenient" or "bargain" food to pour out hastily into their bowl during your busy day? Do you think that you are giving them the benefit when it comes to the most nutritious and health promoting diet? What is even in the available "expensive brands" of "natural" or "balanced and complete" gourmet gruel or strangely symmetrical chunks you may systematically throw your dollars into?

"The dog likes it.", is enough to dispel any hesitation, right? Even the finicky cat has a favorite.... Remember though; a child generally given the opportunity, will choose candy and greasy fried foods over a salad or veggies. Reading the labels, everything sure SOUNDS like is "good".

Why then, does the FDA ("Federal Disastrous A-swipe") and sadly the AAFCO (American Association of Feed Control Officials – organization responsible for all animal feed manufacturing rules and regulations) not want us to know exactly what these attractive sounding culinary delights with "by product" or "meal" contain? The answers to this have led me to the end result that..., what I started doing for myself, l now do for my pets.

I Buy (or grow my own) Organic, raw (cooking and high heat as used by commercial pet food processes, cause loss in total available and system usable nutritional value) ingredients that are Non-GMO, with No; "enhancing" additives, "hydrated solution", antibiotic, pesticide, "meal", "by product", soy gluten, wheat gluten, corn gluten, "animal fat", "animal digest", BHA, BHT, TBHQ, Ethoxyquin, and hormone, (I could go on, there is more). In short make their food myself.

At first the food preparation took time and there is initial financial outlay to assimilate proper ingredients. It was initially, difficult and messy. But through practice of repetition and changing process "steps", it has become no inconvenience for the health of my beloved pets. I must admit, I have found it easy to make large amounts that can be separated into 2-3 day allotments and frozen till needed, thus, always fresh.

I have "experimented" with different flavors and blends to find "favorites" of our particular masses. Now, sided with the report from my vet who is open to ideas "outside the box" (I had to use the pun), my pet's personal beneficial evidence is clear.

If you care to look (and I would not be writing if I did not think you should), there are articles of investigation examining what you are likely to be feeding "Spot" and "Fluffy". Prepare yourself, the information is NOT widely publicized or complementary of most all commercial pet foods available. Here is one place to start

As possible solution to the problem, I would highly recommend the book Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide To Natural Health For Dogs & Cats by, Richard H. Pitcairn, DVM, PhD. I have been following the recommendations of this book as closely as I can for a while now. In it, are natural, healthy recipes and a wealth of information you won't get from a can, bag, most vets, or news agency.

Further, the FDA and AAFCO will not even enforce clear "labeling". Equally disturbing is (like human medical doctors), most DVM's may not know, or worse, some may not want you to know - given that it increases their income through illness of your pet and increasing reliance upon their services and specialized products and drugs.

I just gave my new DVM (at her request!) the information so she could get this book for the valuable information it contains. Upon examining my pets, she noted how "extremely good their coats look", color and condition of the teeth, gums and eyes, and more importantly, they have recovered from variety of symptomatic and chronic health issues some of them previously had, to a healthful ("excellent" was her word) state.

If you do not "have the time" to make it yourself, there are, though not many, "online" individuals that offer safe, natural, organic food for your faithful companion. There are some store bought brands "better" than others. You will be doing a lot of reading before you find a good one - if you can. Fact is though, if it is "processed commercially", there is a good chance that what ingredients were healthful are now diminished or missing altogether and what is in it, should not be.

Convenience, time, effort, and health are involved. Question is; Is it Worth Mother Earth or her inhabitants?

Ignorance... so sad for America and the Earth

Dear Mr. Wood:

Thank you for contacting me regarding our nation's energy policy. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this issue.

I support a comprehensive energy strategy that combines conservation, the development of alternative sources of energy, and an increase in domestic oil and gas production. We are increasingly dependent on foreign sources of energy - importing over sixty percent of the oil we use today. Preliminary research data suggests there may be as much as 125 billion barrels of oil and over 565 trillion cubic feet of natural gas located in designated production areas of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) combined. The domestic oil reserves in both the OCS and ANWR, when coupled with existing U.S. reserves of 21 billion barrels, are more than Iran’s total oil reserve of 136 billion barrels. However, Congress has enacted a moratorium on production in these areas.

In order to bolster domestic production and reduce our reliance on foreign sources, I cosponsored the American Energy Production Act of 2008, which repeals current misguided policy and provides access to America's domestic energy supplies in ANWR and the OCS. The bill also allows access to alternative sources, such as one trillion barrels of shale oil in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. These sources, which presently sit unused, are equal to three times the reserves of Saudi Arabia.

I have also supported numerous initiatives to encourage alternative energy use through market- and incentive-based approaches. On March 28, 2007, I introduced the Creating Renewable Energy through Science and Technology (CREST) Act. It promotes the research and development of renewable energy sources, including wave, solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels. I am very proud to say that Texas is the nation’s leading producer of wind energy, illustrating our state’s commitment to alternative energy production.

Our nation’s energy policy must be proactive instead of reactive. Some of my colleagues in the Senate believe that imposing a windfall profits tax on oil producers or suing the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is the solution to our country’s energy crisis, when, in fact, neither of these proposed plans produces one more ounce of energy. The burden of this tax would be passed down to the consumer, causing record-high fuel prices to rise even higher. Additionally, a windfall profits tax would discourage oil companies from increasing refinery capacity and furthering exploration and production of our own domestic resources. These are not solutions. Instead, a comprehensive energy policy that combines conservation, the development of alternative sources of energy, an increase in domestic oil and gas production, and a safe nuclear energy program will lower energy costs and help our nation become energy independent.

You may be certain I will keep your views in mind regarding any energy legislation offered in the 110th Congress. I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will continue to keep in touch on any issue of concern to you.

Sincerely,
Kay Bailey Hutchison

Dear Kay Bailey Hutchison; United States Senator,

So sad that the issue I intend (to get off oil as energy source) is lost to you 1 (one) second into your reply. Furthermore, you support ruining of more areas such as "misguided policy" of "the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)"!! Absolutely incredible that you would boast about backing such an effort!

You literally seem to really be concerned with putting band aids on a currently broken (in Oh, So Many Ways) "oil" system and the disasters to environment THAT posses and have proven. "Biofuel" by the way, is a growing nightmare in itself, and to the population as well. It proposes (and does) take farm land from feeding people to putting the polluting resources in a gas tank, water supply and air. Again, ignoring the current realities of electric car capabilities. Automobiles competitive with combustion engines now and charged from an outlet that can be supplied by solar energy.... even home solar units. All which could be made affordable and make a difference in our world at no detriment to any environmental position. Unless you are considering the oil company profits.

http://www.teslamotors.com/

You state "...safe nuclear energy..."! What are you THINKING?? Just where do you think all that nuclear waste is going!?? How long till there is nowhere else to put it but under your great-grand children's pillow? May I offer the following site for your enlightenment from The Union of Concerned Scientists.

http://www.ucsusa.org/clean_energy/nuclear_safety/reactor-map/embedded-flash-map.html

After the page loads, click on the map icon that says "Show Inherently Safe Reactors". It is a short read. Then as long as you can afford to care and make the time, explore the nightmare of that energy source. The spills, "leaks" and the disasters that have already happened in that field.

Last thing anyone cares to hear about is tax. But, Why do oil giants get to make RECORD profits, while strangling the American citizen? No need for convoluted excuses here. Save it for the sheep. Bottom line, they are filthy rich, while some have to worry about weighing fuel or food, medical care, or other necessities.

These are not just "...any issue of concern..." to me. These are enslaving the average American and irreversibly polluting our mother, Earth.

This is proved by all the statistical jargon you flop out without one alternative energy "statistic" other than Texas uses wind power. Really? Where? Hot air mostly. I live in Texas and do not see it in use. The differences that solar, wind, "hydro" and ocean current technologies could really provide are near limitless and to forward thinking people absolutely imperative. Incorrectly put as "alternative".

Sincerely,
Patrick Wood, United States Citizen

A reflection from the 4TH of July

My Dear friends,

I wrote this during the holiday that seems to have lost most of the meaning it once had:

Thank G-d we are liberated from tyrannical greedy governments ...umm... well ...

I realize you all want to "relax" and may not want to hear from me about such issues as the information and site I offer you to look at, listed at the bottom of this note. For all of us, take note.... and be aware my seeming hostility, is truly "care".... in much the same way that founding father's "hostility" made this holiday occur. Difference is that back then more people were "aware" of the more obvious (less hidden) problems facing them....

Keep in mind this is only the "tip of the iceberg". While looking at this helpful and informative site, notice the names of the "institutions" (company) that are in control of YOUR life's necessary food supply. Look them up, I dare you--(if you are not too busy looking at silly pictures or other distractions of useless, temporary and "amusing" wastes of time). Then look at the "product" and become aware and educated in the near endless areas these are right now, being "possessed" into your food.

This is occurring in a variety of ways (and currently "legally" done so) with out your even being informed. The FDA, USDA and our own government (unlike some other countries) will not even enforce LABELING of these synthetic substances on the foods we consume... and feed those we supposedly care about.

http://www.naturalnews.com/rBGH.html

http://www.naturalnews.com/censorship.html

They want you, first of all not to notice, then the ones that do notice are branded as "conspiracy nuts" and everyone else is told these things are "safe"!! Sheep go on about convenient, "busy" or (worst of all) "I just do not want to know" life and believe it. Ever pay attention to the sheer number of things "pulled" from the shelves? Have a tomato or pepper lately?? Do you hesitate at all in the grocery isle? Go ahead.... Oh, by the way, are you still drinking the tap water?....

http://mahaffeyiti.com/TapWaterContaminationInfo.aspx

http://www.naturalnews.com/023565.html

Do not be fooled into thinking that an "engineered" food (GMO) is harmless to humans (or in your pet's food). Be warned: they are LYING to your face to say there are NO long term effects... "known". That really means "ADMITTED TO" because there are studies showing the adverse effects of this crap being produced for monetary greed. Stop for one moment .... consider why so many new diseases, syndromes and ailments are "suddenly" effecting human and animal life??

http://www.youtube.com/swf/l.swf?video_id=Dn1ixDVqZ-E&rel=1&eurl=&iurl=http%3A//i.ytimg.com/vi/Dn1ixDVqZ-E/default.jpg&t=OEgsToPDskLZXXwsksukF9GuBd_wj12Y

Share these sites with others. Make the time to KNOW. Ask me. Do not "bury your head in the sand" fear or willful ignorance. Do not be so unenlightened as to think this does not effect you! We know that there IS ANOTHER WAY. Impress that on others. Insist on change and start in your own home. If it's "costs" are a little more in areas of convenience, re-education, up front financial out lay, or simply courage facing unfamiliar (or scary) territory, the long term consequences for health and Mother Earth are far better-hands down.

If you have read this far, thank you. My hope is that we can make a difference for the future. Not only for ourselves, but those that will follow.

Select few: Worth the Earth #4

Dear friends,

Patrick here.... to share a collection from David's files. Starting with helpful ideas for health and then some of the things that you may not realize are right now really happening in (Y)OUR World... examples to show that "if you are NOT OUTRAGED, you are NOT paying attention". It is true that some of this is not very "fun" to know. But then, we are not still on the elementary school playground. There is no need to stop your life to consider and make a few changes in your routine. You do not have to give-up "being happy" to think. You may, however, consider to reevaluate your priorities or thought process, and this is not always easy to do successfully (and with honesty).

Are we going to WAIT for the resulting nightmare of impacts as depicted (or should I say: PREDICTED) in films like "1984" and "Soylent Green"? You are aware that just yesterday part of the Constitution was erased? You may be thinking that "all this" is not going to effect YOU in your chair... Well, first of all "Ya are, Blanch", and, it is effecting you. To most people seemingly, ever so slowly, they do not notice.

Perfect analogy and Fact: A frog (much as the mindless "sheeple" of modern society) will be allowed to be cooked alive when the temperature of water it is in, is slowly turned up to boiling. However, To an enlightened person, educated in the facts of the deterioration of the Constitution, our Republic, personal rights, etc... (much as a live frog dropped into already boiling water), it is alarming!! My dear little Tadpole, do you not notice things a little "warmer" in the "pond"!?

Supposed oil, gas, food and water shortages (there are no "shortages" but the illusions that are created by the greedy to control you through fear). War... for no apparent reason other than wantanous greed for a neighbor's belongings and control over all of them/us to act, do and BE only as "acceptable by someone else's rule and beliefs" (sadly, this is a small minority). Scare tactics from our own governments and again, the elite "small minority" that run them in the shadows. This deceptive ploy works well when facts of a catastrophic event are not known to the general population. The calculated diversion from truth is really a good PR act of creating an "enemy to hate" that is represented falsely. All this eventually, to get us to allow the government to "SAVE US" with more needless regulations, laws and wars accompanied by less and less individual freedom and choice. If you still think 911 was orchestrated by a group in a cave, you need to come out from under that rock. Some people will not smell something foul if their hair was on fire.

Do you not question the strange "unexplainable" outbreaks of new and uncontrollable health problems in man and beast? Hospitals that have the worst unstoppable "super-bugs" of any place. Pharmacy drugs unable to "cure" anything, but do, in fact, cause further "side effects", "complications" and deaths (requiring more drugs to "help" with those problems). Suddenly (and for the first time I have heard of) the freaking "all powerful" FDA can not even pin down an out break of supposed "salmonella". How is it that all these "professionals" are unable to do their jobs???! (I would have been fired with those kind of stats in any position I have past held!!) Could by doing so, some genetically modified food (GMO) or additive be implicated? Would misinformation and greed embarrass the wrong people? Or is it merely a tactic to divert attention from worse...?

Is all this SOMEONE ELSE'S problem to FIX?? It is beyond my comprehension how anyone can be so thoughtless, lazy and selfish toward the next generation of life and of the planet herself to not at least MAKE the time to learn what is happening now. The stuff in most people's heads is as out dated as thinking the world is flat!! Do you not have someone that is quite a bit younger than you that you SAY you "care" about? Children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, or others ... etc...???

Our hopes are to raise awareness about multitudes of facts that are being hidden, "swept under the rug", or outright lied about to the general public. By doing this, an enlightened and educated people would not continue to allow these increasingly invasive and destructive crimes by the greedy elite, resulting big business, and governmental control over personal freedoms (no matter who or what). Change can happen for everyone's benefit. The difference could be a little rocky and somewhat slower than the break-neck speeds we have been ensconced into believing is the "correct" way to live. Chill. Slow down. By all means, find the good in life as we go, enjoy the little things and marvel at the big. But for all our sake, Wake Up and stop hiding your head in society's brainwashing "you NEED to have more stuff and safety" quick sand. Look not at what is only convenient now (for those are short-lived), consider truth instead. What is Worth The Earth?

Food Matters: DETOXIFICATION

Posted: 10 Jul 2008 01:48 AM CDT

Source: http://www.foodmatters.tv/detoxification.html

Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemicalized diet with too much animal protein, too much saturated and trans fats, too much caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem.


Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbors this waste)


Detoxification through special cleansing diets and colonics is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and chronic fatigue. However, even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites. It is a simple three step process.


Step 1: Elimination

This process cleans out mucous and toxins from the intestinal tract and major organs.


There are many ways to eliminate toxins from the body however the most popular, effective and safest forms of detoxification are through Herbal Cleansers and Colon Hydrotherapy.


Herbal Colon Cleansers
Herbal cleanses usually come in the form of a supplement containing plant-derived soluble and insoluble fiber and potent detoxifying herbs. Herbal colon cleansers assist your body in cleansing the colon of accumulated toxic build-up and impacted fecal matter and helps prevent the formation of new build-up.


Where can I get this online?
www.drnatura.com
www.healthyhealing.com
www.sunfood.com


Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. The filtered, temperature regulated water is introduced into the bowel via a disposable speculum. This softens and loosens faeces, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis down through disposable waste tubing that is piped away through the colon therapy machine. There is no odour and modesty is maintained at all times. This flushing process is repeated during a therapeutic treatment. Check out where to find a colon hydrotherapy clinic near you.


Where can I find out more online?

Step 2: Rebuilding healthy tissues


When toxins and wastes are removed, optimal function is restored. During this process eat only fresh and simply prepared nutrient-rich vegetarian foods. Drink lots of pure filtered water, caffeine free herbal teas are acceptable. Include vitamin and mineral supplements and herbal aids for your specific needs.


How Can I Re-build? Some of the best ways to re-build the nutrients our bodies need back into our systems is through eating foods high in nutrients (superfoods) and through supplementation.


Find out more about rebuilding nutrients through superfoods & supplements on our website here:


www.foodmatters.tv/superfoods.html

www.foodmatters.tv/supplements.html


Step 3: Keeping your body clean and toxin free


Through improved diet and lifestyle habits you can strengthen your immune system and keep your health at an optimal level.


The body will feel the effects of a cleanse straight away through rebalanced hormone levels, a rise in energy levels, physically, mentally and sexually and an improved sense of awareness and creativity. You will feel like a different person, because you are! Your outlook and attitude will have changed because through cleansing and improved diet your actual cell make up has changed.


Independence Day Turned Into Our Worst Nightmare

Posted: 10 Jul 2008 01:46 AM CDT

Source: http://justanothercoverup.com/?p=514

The news I read this Independence Holiday is shocking to the core! We’ve had events transpire and attention drawn to others that should outrage every American that begins adding up this holiday’s revelations. After celebrating the birth of the world’s premier democracy, it’s more than disturbing that everything we celebrated was a sham. We’re celebrating an America that no longer exists - a memory of what we were, and our future appears to become bleaker by the day… For all practical purposes, a strong majority of the people is being over-ridden by warmongers and individuals that control our lives that have less compassion and humanity running through their veins since the days of Hitler and Stalin. The things I’ve read and heard have me wondering what happened to us - and most importantly, what we can do about it!


Ron Paul gave a report of Congress that is bone-chilling. It isn’t being repudiated in any fashion that attacks Paul’s credibility - and the charges he has made prove that Congress is not listening to the people, and when that happens, if they run unchecked, it is the people who lose on a scale that could bring an end the to the “American Way of Life.’


Even as bad a we know Bush and Cheney are, how is it that this cancer has spread to the Congress - and after talks with other members of Congress, Ron Paul believes that an attack against Iran has been “green lighted” and some members of Congress are in favor of using nuclear weapons!


Ron Paul: I hear members of Congress saying:


“if we could only nuke Iran” MUCH MORE

Steve Watson / Infowars.net | July 4, 2008

Congressman Ron Paul has warned millions of radio listeners that the US is heading into a deadly confrontation with Iran, revealing his disbelief at members of Congress who have openly voiced support for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the country.

“If we do (attack) it is going to be a disaster,” the Congressman told the Alex Jones show this Thursday.

“I was astounded to see on one of the networks the other day that the debate was not are we going to attack? but are we going to attack before or after the election?” Paul continued. MUCH MORE


As you read the above article, it’s obvious that lobbyists and AIPAC, along with those who are simply Bush enablers and fascists themselves, are more interested in war and padding their own campaign chests and garnering favor with other lobbies in ways that still remain suspect. “81% of Americans Say Country Headed the Wrong Way.” That’s a staggering figure, demonstrating that Congress is turning a blind-eye to those who elected them - instead acting upon their own opinions which may have been influenced by Lobbyist money, and have betrayed the American people again!


To add insult to injury, we are finding out that Bio-fuels are helping to raise gas prices as much as 75 percent, prices which is causing inflation that’s beginning to impact even those families who believed they were “well off.” Vacations are being changed, driving habits are changing and even the affluent are finding-out their incomes are being impacted by an economy that is teetering on collapse.



Biofuels Cause 75% Increase in Food Prices

by The Telegraph (Posted by Watching)

http://www.opednews.com

Environmental campaigners have called for a change in policy on biofuels after a report that they have caused a 75 per cent increase in food prices.

An unpublished World Bank study claimed the EU and US drive towards biofuels was having a massive impact on both food supply and prices.

The US Government had claimed that biofuels - mainly ethanol produced from crops such as corn, palm and soya - was responsible for only a three per cent rise in food prices.

But the World Bank report, drawn up by an internationally-respected economist, states unequivocally that income growth in developing countries was not a major factor in price rises and that a shortage of grain caused by droughts had had only a marginal impact. MUCH MORE


It’s good to know that America’s Agri-business has been able to successfully lobby the government to adopt a program that could bring food shortages to our own country this year, and for the global community, millions could starve from food prices which are hard if not downright impossible for the relief community to absorb. From banking to oil, and even Agri-business, the corporations have been raping the consumer under the guise of becoming independent from foreign oil and help in the fight against global warming. Both justifications for the issues presented above have proved to be false, and surprise, surprise, it’s the American consumer that’s taking it on the chin so the “Corapacy” will thrive and the people are the losers in government policies that are flawed and were designed to plunder America’s wealth; our President hasn’t spoken-out on the matter, but when and if he does, you can believe he will defend, not reverse a trend that is dismantling America’s Middle-Class. Add oil speculators to the mix, and as the Saudi’s and even oil giant BP have stated, there is no shortage of oil! America is being gouged to the point of it driving us into poverty, yet a common voice hasn’t emerged yet, and we seem to be sheep heading to slaughter without the mass of the country having a clue that it’s coming, and it will get far worse before matters become better.


Much of the talk is about America’s Middle class disappearing, however those on fixed-incomes and especially the elderly are being impacted in a way that could affect their health and well-being. Some elders are making less Doctor’s appointments because they can’t afford the gas. They may eventually have to be seen, but it’s likely to be a condition that is substantially worse than if it would have been treated when it was first manifested; the cases which will result in fatalities may never become known, however common-sense dictates it will be high. Nutrition for the elderly is of tantamount importance, and high-fuel prices are impacting programs to feed the elderly:


As Gas Prices Soar, Elderly Face Cuts in Aid

By JOHN LELAND
Published: July 5, 2008

SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. — Early last month, Jeanne Fair, 62, got her first hot meals delivered to her home in this lake town in the sparsely populated southwestern part of the state. Then after two deliveries the meals stopped because gas prices had made the delivery too expensive.

“They called and said I was outside of the delivery area,” said Mrs. Fair, who is homebound and has not been able to use her left arm since a stroke in 1997.

Faced with soaring gasoline prices, agencies around the country that provide services to the elderly say they are having to cut back on programs like Meals on Wheels, transportation assistance and home care, especially in rural areas that depend on volunteers who provide their own gas. In a recent survey by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, more than half said they had already cut back on programs because of gas costs, and 90 percent said they expected to make cuts in the 2009 fiscal year. MUCH MORE


Other families who care for critically ill parents and family members, this author included have to figure-out how to come-up with the extra amount of gas money for the appointments and pharmacy visits that are in the range of eight to ten appointments per month - and it’s impossible to cut-out any of the above until certain situations stabilize. Millions of other families are in the same situation, and how they are coping is beyond me; I find myself going into a hole, and the prospect of higher gas prices on the horizon are mind-numbing. Some of the “seniors” I’m referencing are your own parents, and many will be too proud to ask for help, or will find the rest of their family unable to help because of attempting to cope with their own deteriorating situations.


If we do attack Iran, we all know that the situation will go from bad to worse in a matter of days - if that long. Venezuela has threatened an oil embargo, and none of us know how other nations will trade with the US after we have proven we are an aggressor and a threat to world peace. If the Iran attack doesn’t start World War III, then you can be assured that we have made serious concessions to Russia and China. Don’t be surprised if Taiwan is annexed by China, and Russia’s issues with Georgia will receive nothing but meaningless condemnations as we look the other way for Russia allowing us to attack Iran. Decisions such as this require extensive back-door diplomacy and nothing on this scope will be launched unless other impressive powers are fore-warned and brought into the conspiracy. This is high-stake politics, the kind the pubic doesn’t know about nor understand, but attacking Iran will have to have the tacit approval of Russia and China - even though the condemnations will ring-out loud and clear - but each of those nations will exact their pound of flesh from the Bush administration for allowing an Iran attack to take place without either superpower becoming militarily involved.


The issue we face is what are we going to do about it? I wrote on this subject prior to Independence Day, but since then the landscape has changed. This situation is so fluid it changes by the day, and in order to prevail, we must adapt and keep-up with those who are bound and determined to destroy America. The real problem is America’s MSM who have been involved in a massive propaganda campaign, and only those of us who receive our news on the Internet are aware of the real situation, and a population that is unaware of the danger cannot rise-up and force Congress to act upon the will of the people. America has been dumbed-down, and yesterday, an example presented itself to my son that rattled him as he understood the value broadcasting propaganda under the guise that it’s really news.


He works with the public, and an older gentleman was speaking-out loudly that George W. Bush was our “Savior”, that he had been spoken of in the Bible, and the only news channel worth watching was Fox News. He also reiterated the false-claim that Iraq was partially responsible for 911 - a fact which has been repudiated by President Bush himself! My son attempted to bring forth facts that proved Bush was an enemy of the state, not a “Savior”, and finished by stating that our interests would be well served if Bush and Cheney were handed over to The Hague for a War Crimes Tribunal, and stated his belief that each should face the consequences of their illegal actions. He’s lucky the older man didn’t have a gun, as the look of utter horror on his face was genuine and he reacted with what appeared to be religious fanaticism, acting as if my son had spat on the Bible instead of speaking the truth about a President that has used the Mainstream News Media to brainwash huge segments of our population.


The New York Times ran an editorial on brainwashing, however it was more in the context of how we treat the enemy, and visa versa;


Mind Games
Remembering Brainwashing

By TIM WEINER
Published: July 6, 2008 (Excerpts)

The concept of brainwashing was the brainchild of Edward Hunter, a newspaperman born in 1902, who had covered the rise of fascism in Europe before joining the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner to the Central Intelligence Agency, during World War II. The Korean War had just begun in 1950 when The Miami News published his article, “ ‘Brain-Washing’ Tactics Force Chinese Into Ranks of Communist Party.”

He determined that “the Reds have specialists available on their brainwashing panels,” experts in the use of “drugs and hypnotism,” as he later told the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Their ultimate goal was conquering America.

“The United States is the main battlefield,” he testified, “the people and the soil and the resources of the United States.” He warned that brainwashing would make Americans “subjects of a ‘new world order’ for the benefit of a mad little knot of despots in the Kremlin.” Much More


“Brainwashing” comes in many flavors, from subliminal messages being broadcast by complicit networks to downright lies and misrepresentations of the truth - or even worse, the omission of news that is vital to a population that is attempting to understand why their country is rapidly falling-apart. News that some members of Congress favor nuking Iran should be headline news, and instead, to be heard, Ron Paul had to utilize the Internet, as our MSM is controlled by the “Corapacy” and as true fascists, they print or publish only that which advances their particular cause or agenda. This is not a free press, but one that has been bought and sold, and so-called news organizations like Fox News and other Murdoch owned “news sources” are spewing lies and misinformation, aid a cause that is personal and against the best interests of the American people - and unfortunately, it spans most of the Mainstream News in the United States.


The first item on the agenda to take-over a government is to compromise the press, which has been done quite effectively, and when America finally awakens, if they do before it’s too late, those who own those “news outlets” will be judged as co-conspirators to those who hate our constitution and rule of law. The issue we face is what do we do about it? Millions of Americans who receive their news on the Internet are well-informed and aware that democracy and freedom are only hanging-on by a thread, but there are still too many people who don’t have computers, or the time to delve into the arena of truth and facts and wind-up being misled and frightened into giving up their freedom(s) to ward of a terrorist attack that if it comes, will likely be with the consent or help of the government itself, known as a false-flag attack to further their fascist aspirations and desire to attack Iran and appease AIPAC and other elements that favor war over peace.


Remember one thing if the United States is hit by a “dirty bomb” or an American city turns into a wasteland via a “terrorist” nuclear attack. Homeland security has the ability to detect nuclear material with devices that are so sensitive that in March of this year, a sensor deployed on I-5 in Washington State picked-up a nuclear signature from a cat that had undergone radiation therapy three (3) days earlier. These sensors are not expensive, and for the cost of two or three days, or maybe as many as 30 days of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, they could be deployed throughout the entire United States. If they can sense a cat that had undergone radiation therapy three days prior going 70 Mph down an Interstate - then it stands to reason that nuclear material entering this country is easily preventable and detectable by Homeland Security if they spend the money and decide to deter an attack rather than allowing another 911 to occur; our technology is second to none, and now that we know our own military satellites have been turned against the public to aid law enforcement in criminal investigations and to invade the privacy of the average American - then the least they can do is guarantee our safety as well!


Watch out, you’re being watched

Danny Westneat
Seattle Times staff columnist

It turns out the feds have been monitoring Interstate 5 for nuclear “dirty bombs.” They do it with radiation detectors so sensitive it led to the following incident.

“Vehicle goes by at 70 miles per hour,” Giuliano told the crowd. “Agent is in the median, a good 80 feet away from the traffic. Signal went off and identified an isotope [in the passing car].”

Did he find a nuke?

“Turned out to be a cat with cancer that had undergone a radiological treatment three days earlier,” Giuliano said. MUCH MORE


There’s no question that the Feds have the technology and ability to protect America, and if they don’t, my belief will be that they allowed something to happen to “nationalize” the people as dictated in the PNAC agenda. Everything that we once were proud of and cherished is going away and being gobbled up by the “Corporists”, compliments of a government that has ignored and spat upon those who sent them to Washington to represent the people. Keep in mind that members of Congress are openly voicing an opinion that America should nuke Iran, a move that could spell the end of the world’s premier, albeit, diminishing democracy. When will “enough be enough” and the people of this nation band together in solidarity and demand that Congress votes our will instead of allowing our representatives to say one thing while campaigning and then do exactly the opposite when they arrive in Washington? The tragedy of liberty and freedoms being lost is one that is preventable and the fault lies with the people themselves and a Mainstream News Media that isn’t worth watching unless they are reporting upon a storm or other important event, but when it come to government accountability, the MSM is nothing more than Fascist America’s mouthpiece, worthless, complicit, and traitors to the American people.

    Patrick here...  Though this is not new, David and I have been unplugging and turning off stuff because of reports just like these.  We even found, after taking our beautiful and "loaded" (pun intended) new microwave to the trash, there is life (literally*) without the microwave!  We have found the society induced thought that we had to have it's convenience's were simply unfounded and unnecessary.

*A note about microwaves you may NOT have known (of course, the makers and suppliers would not want to tell you either)....  aside from the reasons in the following article, they change the molecular structure of whatever you put in them.  The ramifications of this are that the chemical molecular make-up of the food is now altered and "deformed".  Furthermore, these new "synthetic alterations" are not only less used by and therefore less useful to the body, but have many times been show to have carcinogenic properties not presented by the nature of the "raw food" prior.

Worth The Earth 2: Natural supplements

Patrick here with info regarding part of the start, fighting those in "Big Pharma" for our personal rights to use natural vitamins and mineral supplements. The REAL effort being shown here is that "greed monster" again. If they take away relatively inexpensive natural supplements, then they can force you to "buy" a prescription for an expensive synthetic (with God knows what side effects) from a "medical Dr."... and that is if HE deems it to your best interest! Oh and as for the second issue in this letter.... Being FAT is not a "disease" it is ignorance and lack of self control. Sheep and cattle..... STOP ABUSE OF "FDA" CITIZEN'S PETITIONS! Let us think and choose for ourselves. If you are not too busy, you could do as follows....


Representative Pete Sessions
U.S. House of Representatives
1514 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515-0001

Dear Representative Sessions,

I'm writing you today regarding two different drug company's
Citizen Petition to the FDA: (1) Medicure Pharmaceutical's
Citizen's Petition Request to Ban Vitamin B6 as a Dietary
Supplement (FDA-2007-P-0410-0002) and (2) GlaxoSmithKline's
Citizen's Petition Request that Weight Loss Claims Be Designated
as Disease Claims (FDA-2008-P-0248-0001).

I have just learned that over the last six months two
pharmaceutical companies have submitted requests to ban certain
dietary supplements through the Food and Drug Administration's
(FDA) Citizen Petition process. I request that the FDA reject
these requests and that Congress address this disturbing trend
of drug companies manipulating the system and the FDA.

Medicure has requested that the agency ban the marketing of
dietary supplements containing Vitamin B6 because they have a
drug in development whose active ingredient is pyridoxal
5'-phosphate (P5). Medicure suggests that P5P is a new dietary
ingredient, which is subject to pre-market approval
requirements. However, within their own documents, they admit
that P5P is a naturally occurring molecule. It has in fact been
a part of the human diet well before the 1994 passage of the
Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) and
therefore is exempt from the New Dietary Ingredient pre-market
notification requirements. While I appreciate the $60 million
investment that Medicure has made into the development of a new
drug, I do not believe their drug development should restrict my
access to P5P as a dietary supplement. Vitamin B6 is essential
to good health.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), in a round-about maneuver appears to be
trying to ban the marketing of dietary supplements for weight
loss and thus eliminate the competition to its over-the-counter
drug Alli. GSK has asked the FDA to declare weight loss claims
as disease claims. A healthy diet, physical activity, and an
informed use of dietary supplements is a safe and effective
method of achieving healthy and lasting weight loss. GSK's move
to restrict Americans' access to dietary supplements and quality
information on the label is counter to the promotion of wellness
strategies. Further it is an attempt on their part to restrict
free speech and curtail the sharing of information about product
uses between manufacturer and consumer.

As an American who includes dietary supplements in my approach
to health and wellness, I request that you place the rights of
consumers ahead of the desires of industry and protect my
freedom to access dietary supplements. Please reject both
Medicure's and GSK's attempts to manipulate the FDA and the
marketplace through their Citizen's Petitions.



Sincerely,
Patrick Wood



Recycle Light Bulbs/Other Hazards in Household

Dear friends,

Why is it that most corporations ("First Worlders" leading the way), are so Hell bent on greedy money making at the expense of future health ramifications to all inhabiting our planet???

Is it worth mother Earth??? Are we so low intellectually, and morally? The article that prompted this post exemplifies diversion from deeper issues (greed and toxic pollution).

Here is what I propose on this specific example, along with some generalities.....

Thanks to Home Depot (article at the bottom) for this relatively easy way to supposedly "get rid" of all these new (and widely unknown dangerous) fluorescent and compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs....

Problems are: (In general; Public support from ignorance, or Lack of proper support)

1). These carcinogenic bulbs should not even be on the market! They are
dangerous to health and environment... from producing them, to disposal.


Fluorescent Lamp Study Report
EPA on Spills and specific site clean-up facts
How to Properly Dispose of Hazardous Products
Lamprecycle.org

2). Not even one fraction of the un-laziest people will take advantage of this program or
make the effort, (Reality check; How many people you know recycle? Okay, how about when
it is convenient? How many properly recycle everything possible and at what ever personal
discomfort it takes?). What about you?

3). (For this isolated story) I used to WORK at Home Depot (5 years). I know the ways the
management "operate", mostly, lack there of. However, attention to a bigger issue is
appropriate here.

Answer to this example problem:

1.) First, Do not buy fluorescent bulbs!!!
Stop supporting any system that is wrong!!

2.) CFLs should be disposed of properly so landfills aren't polluted. Take the ones you have to
H D and accept their offer to recycle. WHAT they really will do with them aside, you gave it
your best and H D (if not "responsible") is now at least "liable" for their actions.

3.) To really "save" in all respects, Buy this... There are new LED bulbs available mostly
"on-line". (As of this date H D does NOT carry them). These bulbs offer even longer life and
greater energy savings than the poisonous mercury filled. Superior in every way to the
(still available everywhere) antique bulb that Edison (1847-1879) built in 1878!

Non-toxic, easy to recycle and even greater efficiency rating-making them cost less (financially and environmentally) over the life of the bulbs. Oh sure, they do cost a little more up-front to purchase. However, for a bulb that may out live you while greatly saving energy and the health of the environment..... I say pinch an inch and gain a yard.

People supporting any "bad" systems at any level, are the ones responsible for all of us having to live in this nightmare of toxins.

In general, Pay attention to Whom has to gain What. This alone, can disclose allot.

Learn how to Recycle. It is becoming more important than you may think.

It is our individual efforts to do what is right that are....
