Israeli Nazis ???

Israeli initiated violence continues raging throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Soldiers stormed the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem.

Residents were threatened over a loud speaker, one soldier yelling in Arabic: “We will gas you all until you die.”

If this is true, We The People must stop our government's facilitation of this apparent genocide.


But what are we doing instead? Passing laws, rules, and regulations which forbid any criticism of what the Israelis are doing.


WTF ???


For a sane Israeli's perspective on what is (or may be) happening over there, I suggest you read this essay by Uri Avnery:

The Constitution's Big Lie

One of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated upon Americans at the time of its telling and which is still trumpeted to this very day is the notion that the U.S. Constitution contains within its framework mechanisms which limit its power. The “separation of powers,” where power is distributed among the three branches – legislative, executive, judicial – is supposedly the primary check on the federal government’s aggrandizement.

This sacred held tenet of American political history has once again been disproved.

While I am in general agreement that today's federal government is no longer under the control of We The People, I think the situation has undergone a sea change since the murder of John Kennedy. Until then we tried to live up to our Constitution, but after his death things went south in a hurry.

Maybe that was the whole point of his killing. There are no checks and balances when they can be overridden by an assassin's bullets.

Racism In Czech Republic And EU

When respected philosophers get attacked in the middle of the street, you know that something is going terribly wrong with the nation.

The Czech Republic (and before, Czechoslovakia) was always a tough, racist place. It had its shameful share of anti-Semitic pogroms (Franz Kafka wrote, after one of them, that he will never be able to feel that he belongs to Czechoslovakia, anymore). It voluntarily exterminated a great number of its Gypsy (Roma) population during the Second World War. And it kicked out millions of Germans right after the war, following a shameless orgy of rape, murder and looting. “Shameless”, because the Czechs generally collaborated with the Nazi occupation regime, and therefore had no moral mandate to “settle scores” with its German minority.

Compared to what is happening in Europe, our aversion to illegal Mexican immigrants is quite tame.


If you recall, the European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012 "for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe".


Q: What went wrong between now and then?


A: Obama ad-Dajjal and Hillary screwed with them. Her State Department helped destroy the nations whose refugees are now flooding Europe, and his aggression toward Russia has done much to negate 60 years of European advancement.


Good job, you two educated morons !!!


By the way, I don't agree with the author's claim that Czechs "generally collaborated" with the Nazis. If you recall, the Czechs had been ready to repel the threatened German invasion in 1938 (and probably would have prevailed), but European leadership sold them out at Munich and more or less delivered them into the hands of the Nazis.


It was the British desire for peace which sold them out then, and it is the German failure to stand up to US perfidy and aggression which is destroying Europe now.

US Aggression In Syria

The United States' decision to send troops into Syria is an act of aggression because it does not have the government's agreement, a Syrian member of parliament said Saturday.

Sharif Shehadeh told The Associated Press that the troops will have no effect on the ground, but that Washington wants to say it is present in Syria.

Robots Teach Each Other

Humans, monkeys and even birds are able to share knowledge and skills, and now robots can too.

A machine called Baxter has taken instructions of how to complete a simple task from a robot 325 miles (523km) away and used them to carry out the same job.

This is significant because Baxter and the training robot were designed differently and Baxter had to 'figure out' how to complete the task in an entirely different setting.

Our Long Downhill Slide

On January 6, 2004, Senator Charles Schumer and I challenged the erroneous idea that jobs offshoring was free trade in a New York Times op-ed. Our article so astounded economists that within a few days Schumer and I were summoned to a Brookings Institution conference in Washington, DC, to explain our heresy. In the nationally televised conference, I declared that the consequence of jobs offshoring would be that the US would be a Third World country in 20 years.

That was 11 years ago, and the US is on course to descend to Third World status before the remaining nine years of my prediction have expired.

US Has Been In Combat In Iraq For Months

Last week’s “first of the ISIS war” combat death for a US soldier in Iraq gave way to admissions, over the past two days, that the Pentagon is engaged in ground combat as a fairly regular matter during what officials have presented as an exclusively “advisory” deployment. It’s also apparently not new.

Apparently determined to protest the charge of “mission creep” in the war, officials are now conceding that they’ve been engaged in secret ground combat for months now, and therefore this isn’t mission creep, but rather a transition to public admission of what they’ve been doing all along.

A: The only purpose Congress now serves is to maintain the illusion that our government has not been taken over by the oligarchs, bankgangsters, and corporations, backed by a US military which now functions as an army-for-hire.

Two Dots We Should Have Connected

Many people have noticed that the actual reason for the Benghazi attacks (US illegal arms smuggling condoned by Hillary) was obscured by the false "anti-Muslim film" narrative pushed by Hillary and others.

But few have noticed that the actual parties behind the 9/11 attacks (which may include Saudi Arabia, Israel, and others) have been obscured by the false "Osama bin Laden did it" narrative pushed by just about everyone (including Hillary).

This obscuring of reality has been enabled by the fact that neither attack has been subject to a fair and open investigation with full subpoena powers.

Update - Here perhaps is another dot we should connect. Was Osama bin Laden really killed by Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions, or was his alleged assassination merely another illusion foisted on us by the master of fabrication?

Who Is Lying About The Temple Mount ???

Recently Israel's ambassador to the US published a list of what he called "ten deadly lies about Israel":

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/10/ten-deadly-lies-about-israel-213272


I urge you to read his claims about these lies and then to consider what Israeli PM NetanYahoo is now saying:


PM Netanyahu called on lawmakers to behave responsibly, after MK Basel Ghattas (Joint List) ascended the Temple Mount on Wednesday, in defiance of the prime minister’s orders.


“The Temple Mount has been quiet for two weeks and we are making every effort to keep it quiet, but that bothers some people,” Netanyahu said. “I can assure you that Ghattas did not go up to pray, he went up just to provoke and inflame the atmosphere.”


Netanyahu said he will “not let any MK, on either side, light the Temple Mount on fire.”


Ghattas said that he was able to enter the compound “smoothly and naturally,” and that he visited all of its areas, despite Netanyahu’s instruction to police earlier this month to keep MKs from the site.


Source - http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Netanyahu-Joint-List-MK-ascended-Temple-Mount-to-provoke-not-to-pray-430296


Who is really doing the provoking? Palestinians, or Israelis ... who have to be restrained less they unleash an even bigger escalation of the current violence?


Then ask yourself this: why would Jews from around the world "return" to Israel but then NOT make Jerusalem their capital and NOT rebuild the Jewish Temple? That would make no sense at all.

Somebody's not telling the truth, and at least some of these ten lies are being told by the Israelis themselves.

The Midwife To Chaos And Her Perjury

The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd captured the moment last weekend when she referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as "the midwife to chaos" in Libya. Dowd apparently came to that conclusion after watching Clinton bobbing and weaving and admitting and denying as she was confronted with the partial record of her failures and obfuscations as secretary of state, particularly with respect to Libya.

& & & & & & & &


To pursue her goal of a "democratic" government there, Clinton, along with Obama and a dozen or so members of Congress from both houses and both political parties, decided she should break the law by permitting U.S. arms dealers to violate the U.N. arms embargo and arm Libyan rebels whom she hoped would one day run the new government. So she exercised her authority as secretary of state to authorize the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood and friendly to the Libyan rebels and a country the U.S. had no business arming – unless the purpose of doing so was for the arms to be transferred to the rebels.


Once this plot was hatched, Clinton and her fellow conspirators realized that some of these rebel groups were manned by al-Qaida operatives; and selling or providing arms to them is a felony – hence the reason for months’ worth of missing and destroyed Clinton emails. How could someone running for president possibly justify providing material assistance to terrorist organizations in the present international climate?

& & & & & & & &


At the same time Clinton was telling her daughter and the Egyptian prime minister within hours of Stevens’ death that al-Qaida killed him and after the CIA told her the plot to kill Stevens had been hatched 12 days earlier, she told the public that Stevens was killed by spontaneous demonstrators angered about a cheap anti-Islam video, the producer of which she vowed to "get." She later angrily dismissed questions over this cover-up by arguing, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"


The difference it makes goes to the heart of the American electoral process. Every four years, we entrust awesome power to a person who swears to protect the Constitution. How could we give that power to a consistent public liar who, for personal political gain, midwifed terror and chaos in a country that was our ally and whose words and behavior have continually demonstrated that she is utterly unworthy of belief?

Some CEOs Have A Great Retirement Plan

While Americans under 65 with retirement accounts have saved a median of just $50,000 for retirement, top chief executives have saved an average of more than 900 times that.

The total amount in the 100 largest CEO retirement funds is worth the same amount as all the retirement savings of 41% of American families combined, according to a study released Wednesday by the research and policy analysis firm Center for Effective Government. That means that 100 people now have the same amount shored up for retirement as 116 million people.

Who Kills More Americans - Cops Or Terrorists ???

The increase in police brutality in this country is a frightening reality. In the last decade alone the number of  people murdered by police has reached 5,000. The number of soldiers killed since the inception of the Iraq war, 4489.

What went wrong? In the 1970’s SWAT teams were estimated to be used just a few hundred times per year, now we are looking at over 40,000 military style “knock and announce” police raids a year.

The police presence in this country is being turned into a military with a clearly defined enemy, anyone who questions the establishment.

If we look at the most recent numbers of non-military US citizens killed by terrorism worldwide, that number is 17. You have a better chance of being killed by a bee sting, or a home repair accident than you do a terrorist. And you are 29 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a terrorist!

Are There Fungi In Your Brain ???

Despite years of intense medical research, the cause of Alzheimer's remains enigmatic. The ultimate molecular manifestation of the disease consists of the accumulation of a small toxic protein called amyloid beta that causes inflammation and destroys neurons. Why this occurs in some individuals but not others is unknown. Genetic, immunological, and environmental risk factors have been investigated, but no smoking gun has emerged.

A relatively new hypothesis is that fungal infection can trigger the disease. Back in 2014, a group of Spanish researchers found fungal DNA and proteins in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. Now, the same team has performed a new analysis using fungus-specific antibodies. They show that several different fungi are present, both inside and outside cells, throughout the brains of Alzheimer's patients.

Speak Up And Do Good

One of my high school English teachers often quoted the following line from Thoreau's Walden:

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation."


This author gives advice on how to end that quiet desperation:

  • You know the truth when you feel, understand or hear it.
  • You feel a sigh of relief when you hear and speak the truth; others feel it, too, when you take the courage to speak it.
  • Yes, you will experience resistance; use it and work with it toward your ultimate objective.
  • Know that when you speak the truth and take action toward the truth—to right a wrong or vanquish something evil—you gain the energy of the universe or Providence or whatever you may consider “power for good.”
  • Remember that “universal energy” conspires to work with you for truth and goodness you desire.
  • As you take action, you will find commonality among others that want to work with you.

There Is No "Right To Kill"

"What right do we have to kill somebody in some other country who we don't like?”

This idea, that the United States has the right to invade, bomb, and kill, is a myth that renowned author and intellectual Noam Chomsky debunked during a 25-minute interview with Abby Martin for teleSUR's The Empire Files.


Even if the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which the United States bombed in October, had been only full of Taliban, Chomsky asks, why does the United States feel it has the right to kill people there?


“The idea that we have the right to use force and violence at will is accepted pretty much across the spectrum,” Chomsky said of politicians and the media in the United States. “The very idea of invading is criminal, but try to find someone who describes it as a crime. Obama is praised because he describes (the Iraq War) as a mistake.”

Lion Strikes Back At Hunters

Authorities reported a group of five men hunting without licences was attacked by the big cat at a private game farm near the Kruger.

Matome Mahlale, 24,was killed along with two dogs, who were accompanying the group.


Local police spokesman Colonel Ronel Otto said: "Three men managed to climb into a tree and another managed to escape, but the deceased and two dogs were mauled to death."


A local said: "There won't be many people feeling sorry for him. This is seen as poetic justice for the death of Cecil."


Cecil was a Southwest African lion who lived in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, which borders South Africa where the killer lion attacked the hunter.

The Day We Were Almost Nuked

By [Airman] Bordne's account, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Air Force crews on Okinawa were ordered to launch 32 missiles, each carrying a large nuclear warhead. Only caution and the common sense and decisive action of the line personnel receiving those orders prevented the launches - and averted the nuclear war that most likely would have ensued.

* * * * * * * *

Still, to hedge against this possibility, Capt. Bassett ordered his crew to run a final check on each of the missiles' launch readiness. When the captain read out the target list, to the crew’s surprise, three of the four targets were not in Russia. At this point, Bordne recalls, the inter-site phone rang. It was another launch officer, reporting that his list had two non-Russian targets.Why target non-belligerent countries?

More Unconstitutional Debt

Here is what the US Constitution says about federal debt:

14th Amendment
4: The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

But here is what Congress apparently is being asked to vote for:

The deal, officially unveiled by Boehner Tuesday, would suspend the debt limit through 2017.

Suspending the limit again? Doesn't that mean that the additional debt is not actually "authorized by law" ... and therefore unconstitutional?

And whether or not it is, why is Congress still not addressing the problems of our nation?

This is getting to the point that someday only a dictator will be able to address our debt, and that dictator will start by throwing the rest of the US Constitution out the window.

J. K. Rowling Confused ???

J. K. Rowling has defended her decision to oppose a cultural boycott of Israel in a post on her Twitter account.

The Harry Potter author was criticized by a number of her fans on social media after she was announced as one of the 150 British artists who signed an open letter, published by The Guardian last week, espousing the value of cultural engagement with the Jewish state over a cultural boycott.

On Monday, Rowling addressed “a number of readers asking for more information about why I am not joining a cultural boycott of Israel,” stating that she had “never heard of a cultural boycott ending a bloody and prolonged conflict.”

TX Students Asked To Deny God

A Texas seventh-grader is standing up for her religious beliefs after she alleges her teacher forced students to deny that God is real, and threatened them with failing grades if they don’t agree.

Jordan Wooley, a seventh grade student at West Memorial Junior High School in the Katy Independent School District, testified at a school board meeting last night about an assignment in her reading class that caused a serious controversy, and expressed frustration about her teacher’s atheist indoctrination.

“Today I was given an assignment in school that questioned my faith and told me that God was not real. Our teacher had started off saying that the assignment had been giving problems all day. We were asked to take a poll to say whether God is fact, opinion or a myth and she told anyone who said fact or opinion was wrong and God was only a myth,” Wooley told board members.

Students immediately objected, Wooley said, but the teacher refused to consider their position.

Human DNA In Hot Dogs ???

The company analyzed 345 hot dog and sausage products from 75 brands and 10 retailers, and said they found "human DNA in 2% of the samples, and in 2/3rds of the vegetarian samples."

Is this from the occasional butcher accidentally cutting off his finger, or from the Mafia disposing of their kills?

Or is Soylent Green slowly making its way into our food supply?

Regime Change By Murder Inc.

“At the eleven-hour United States House Select Committee on Benghazihearing yesterday, Sec. Hillary Clinton said something in passing that has received no attention by the committee members or the media. When asked by Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) about a video clip that read, “We came, we saw, he died [meaning former Libyan President Muammar al-Gaddafi]. Is that the Clinton doctrine?” Clinton replied, “No, that was an expression of relief that the military mission undertaken by NATO and our other partners had achieved its end.”

What is now totally forgotten is that regime change WAS NOT the intended military mission of the Libya intervention in March 2011. As President Barack Obama stated (atfp.co/1kyBt2i) in a speech to the nation on March 28, 2011, “The task that I assigned our forces [is] to protect the Libyan people from immediate danger, and to establish a no-fly zone,” adding explicitly, “Broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.”

If the Select Committee on Benghazi had been interested in conducting an actual oversight hearing of the Obama administration’s policy toward Libya, a committee member could have pressed Clinton to explain why U.S. objectives shifted so markedly from protecting civilians to killing Qaddafi. Or, if regime change was the intended policy objective from the very beginning, why didn’t President Obama say so to the American public? Unfortunately, such a line of questioning was not pursued yesterday, nor will it be in other committee hearings. A journalist should ask Clinton about this discrepancy, since she would be making similar speeches to the nation about America’s war aims.”

Clearly, Congress does not give a damn.

No matter who becomes the next US President, the killing will go on. And on and on until every leader Hillary and her bosses do not like has been taken out of the way.

If that's what you want in a President, you are sick.

The Next Wave Of Immigrants Will Be A Tsunami

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, pledging to go “beyond President Obama” in embracing illegal immigrants, said that she will use executive powers as president to go around Congress to end deportations.

At Saturday’s Iowa Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, she also called illegals “law abiding.”

During a period of her 25 minute address when she was listing her political promises, she turned to immigration to say that she would go farther than Obama to protect the 12 million illegal immigrants in America, especially families.

“I am going to back and support what President Obama has done to protect Dreamers and their families, to use executive action to prevent deportation,” Clinton said to cheers in the audience of about 6,000.

Genocide Of The Palestinians ???

It’s unlikely that the world has ever seen building and construction used as a weapon on this scale before, but Palestinian land is currently being colonised by over 600,000 Israelis in the West Bank and East Jerusalem areas, and the settlers have openly voiced that they fully intend to eradicate Palestine – or Judea and Samaria, as they call the region, through their illegal construction.

Israel have a systematic process to their goal. They first occupy the land, then settle and steal it. They have no intention of a peace process, their intention is to fully colonise the country in direct contravention of Article 49 of the Geneva Convention which specifically forbids an occupying power from transporting its own population into the occupied territory. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is simply sitting back and watching it happen.

The world, especially the US, has watched genocide take place without doing anything many times. I doubt, however, that it has ever occurred so openly before, or with this high a level of publicity.

US Police State Public Education


Democracy requires an educated citizenry. America's founders believed it was insurance against loss of liberty.

Jefferson said “(e)very government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories. And to render them safe, their minds must be improved…”

Public education is vital because it serves the public interest - giving meaning to “we the people.” Father of American education Horace Mann called “(t)he common school...the greatest discovery ever made by man.” He meant public, not privatized, prioritizing profits over teaching. He believed all students should be educated equally and responsibly.

In America today, they’re intimidated, persecuted and controlled, not taught the way young people were when I grew up in inner city Boston from kindergarten in 1939 to my 1952 high school graduation.

Then college and graduate school when both were extremely affordable, extraordinarily cheap by today’s standards. America’s student loan racket didn’t exist - debt-entrapping millions of students repressively, some facing a lifetime of debt bondage.

Are Borders Now An Extremist Relic ???

The endless wave of migrants - for which we have utterly failed to prepare - will unleash extremist politics throughout the Continent.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/11955742/We-are-seeing-the-last-dying-days-of-open-frontiers-in-Europe.html

Q: Why is a desire for secure borders and a stable population considered to be "extremist"?

A: Because there is a concerted effort underway to destroy sovereign nation states, and the flood of migrants is one of the tools being used against citizens who don't want to "change" (i.e., who prefer stable lives to chaos).

End Of US As We Know It

A major battle in a war over the future of Western civilization has been lost as millions of migrants from the Middle East who largely oppose Judeo-Christian values and have no intention of assimilating flood the United States, Britain, France, Germany and other nations, talk-radio host Michael Savage told his listeners Tuesday.

Savage said he received an email from someone he described as "far smarter than I am" and "farseeing."

"He said to me, 'It's over.'"

Paraphrasing the email, Savage said that what German Chancellor Angela Merkel is "doing to Germany, what the weakling is doing to England, what the socialist is doing to France, what Obama the psychopath is doing to America, will render this country non-existent in less than 50 years."

http://www.wnd.com/2015/10/michael-savage-weve-lost-the-battle/

No, the email did not come from me, but if it had I would have been in general agreement; but not for the reasons attributed to it by Mr. Savage.

The persons, living and dead, who are in control want a borderless world with a single government, all under their control. This has nothing to do with Judeo-Christian values, and everything to do with the corporate takeover of the world exemplified by TPP, TTIP, and TISA.

For a while, those nations aligned with the BRICS will continue to espouse the "Western" values they have assimilated with their capitalist economies. But sooner or later the NWO crowd will wear them down ... and every knee will bow to the beast, and to the whore who rides it.

Had you been paying attention, you might have realized the inevitability of this once "our" elected and appointed officials stopped adhering to their OATHS of office. It is they who opened the floodgates of immigration, to be used as another tool to hasten the collapse of the sovereign governments they are subverting for the benefit of the living dead (a.k.a. corporations).

Did Anyone Die At Sandy Hook ???

A new book about Sandy Hook makes some startling claims:

Proof it was a drill was right before our eyes:
* the sign, “Everyone must check in!”
* boxes of bottled water & pizza cartons
* Port-a-Potties present from scratch
* many wearing name tags on lanyards
* parents bringing children to the scene

Proof it wasn’t a massacre was also there:
* no surge of EMTs in to the building
* no Med-Evac helicopter was called
* no string of ambulances to the school
* no evacuation of 469 other students
* no bodies placed on the triage tarps

Disappearing Palestine - Fact Or Propaganda ???

Take a look at this graphic:

Decide for yourself whether it portrays fact or propaganda.


And then ask yourself what the real role of the US and the MSM media has been in this regard.

A Woman Rides The Beast

Some observers are conceding that Hillary will be the next US President:

http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-10-26/the-most-likely-next-president-is-hillary-clinton


I am starting to agree that it certainly looks that way.


That brings up an interesting possibility which is suggested by this New Testament prophecy:


And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Revelation 17:1-6 KJV

Most observers believe that the whore is the Catholic Church and that the beast is a reincarnation of the Holy Roman Empire. But perhaps the whore is instead a woman in command of the New World Order which the US and her minions have been constructing.


Indeed, Pope Francis and his church are ascendant, but they possess nowhere near the power which the New World Order is accumulating unto itself.


Until proven otherwise, I go with the interpretation that what Revelation 17 describes is a woman in command of the New World Order apparatus - and circumstances dictate that the woman who will play that role is likely to be Hillary.


Should you need an example of how she is "drunk with blood", watch this short video:


https://youtu.be/Fgcd1ghag5Y


No one's death is worthy of that sort of derisive laughter.


Update - And it is not merely Gaddafi's blood with whom she is drunk; add to it the blood of Syria's Christians, who are being killed by the very extremists that Hillary armed with the weapons captured from Libya and diverted to Syria under her direction. You can read about their martyrdom here:

Bishops Demand World Economy Be Decarbonised

Bishops launched a global appeal Monday for a break-through at upcoming Paris climate talks, including a "complete decarbonisation" of the world's economy and more help for poor countries battling the effects of climate change.

The bishops said any agreement "should limit global temperature increases to avoid catastrophic climatic impacts, especially on the most vulnerable communities".

From across five continents they called "not only for 'drastic reduction in the emission of carbon dioxide and other toxic gasses', but also for ending the fossil fuel era".

You can read the rest @
https://in.news.yahoo.com/global-bishops-call-complete-decarbonisation-151851702.html

Since human beings and most other lifeforms on this planet are "carbon based units", a complete decarbonisation of the world's economy would require that we all be replaced with robots.

Somehow I don't think the bishops would have any problem with that.

By the way, Jesus said that His kingdom was not of this world, so why are bishops interfering with the actions of earthly kingdoms?

Has the Catholic Church under Pope Francis adopted liberation theology? And if it has not, then to whom is the church now delivering us?

Our Top Ten Fears

Why You Are Not Leaving Earth Any Time Soon

It costs $10,000 per pound to put an object into earth orbit. You can read about it here:

http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/news/background/facts/astp.html_prt.htm

That means it would cost most of us over $2 million each just to get into earth orbit, and more to sustain us there and/or send us to another planet.

Obviously, we're not going anywhere any time soon.

The 0.01%, however, can afford to go into space. Maybe this is why they are so "greedy" - they need that great wealth so they can escape the mess humanity has created here before it's too late.

Of course, considering their moral and spiritual immaturity they're likely to repeat the process anywhere they go; i.e., turn a pristine paradise into an unlivable toxic waste dump before moving on.

The Truth About School

Unraveling Democracy In Michigan

Something is rotten in the state of Michigan.

One city neglected to inform its residents that its water supply was laced with cancerous chemicals. Another dissolved its public school district and replaced it with a charter school system, only to witness the for-profit management company it hired flee the scene after determining it couldn’t turn a profit. Numerous cities and school districts in the state are now run by single, state-appointed technocrats, as permitted under an emergency financial manager law pushed through by Rick Snyder, Michigan’s austerity-promoting governor. This legislation not only strips residents of their local voting rights, but gives Snyder’s appointee the power to do just about anything, including dissolving the city itself -- all (no matter how disastrous) in the name of “fiscal responsibility.”

Make no mistake - similar measures soon will be coming to a city, state, and or country near you.


Just as 9/11 was used as a pretext to take away many of our freedoms, federal/state/local bankruptcies will be used to privatize our remaining publicly owned assets and to impose crippling austerity measures upon most or all of us.


Unless you are a member of the 0.01% or one of the living dead (a.k.a. corporations), the party is over.
