The Rose: Check out the lyrics - think about it...

Go here

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed

It's the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love, in the spring
Becomes the rose

Unjustified Killing in Seattle by police: Justice Temporarily Delayed by Authorities

The verdict is out - even though the woodcarver's knife was closed and the victim wasn't even facing the police officer who sprayed him with lead killing him - surprise surprise - NO CRIMINAL CHARGES TO BE FILED!  

That's too bad - because now things are going to get bad.  

"The shooting was ruled unjustified, but prosecutors recently said they would not file criminal charges. Mayor Mike McGinn, meanwhile, declared Sunday John T. Williams Day."

     This makes it official.  The "authorities" have decided that it is OK for a cop to murder and not face charges.  I interpret this as an invitation for anyone that wants to commit murder - to join the police - after all - take your pick - look at all those "civilians" out there - you can shoot someone in cold blood and laugh all the way home.  

     This is a bad move.  The reaction from the public is a sign that natural law will trump our dysfunctional criminal's justice system.  Nature demands that things balance out - one way or the other.  Looks like those making peaceful change ( with respect to addressing police brutality and murder) impossible are making violent revolution happen.  Kennedy was right.  We are watching the inevitable revolution right before our very eyes.

     As the revolution spreads - and things heat up here in the U.S. I expect things to get worse before they get better. 

    It is a shame that our "leaders" are so out-of-touch that they are practically facilitating the escalation to violence from peaceful protest.  After all - if those tasked in government to police the police won't do their job - somebody has to do it for them. 

    It is crazy to think Americans are going to stand by and allow thug police to murder citizens.  Why?  Because police murderers defeat the purpose of their existence - which is to deter murder.  A murdering cop is just as bad as a murdering anybody - and they belong at a minimum - behind bars - not walking the streets with loaded weapons - backed up by jesters leeching off the public who won't prosecute the dirty cop - always coming up with increasingly incredible excuses why the cop is always right - even when they are wrong.

     So - we'll have to see the escalation - since Lady Liberty must be won over - courted - and cared for with eternal vigilance.  Unlike our failed criminal's justice system here in the states - the legal system known as natural law continues to function perfectly.  Those on the wrong side of justice deserve the punishment they have coming.

     It doesn't matter who the bad guys are, what uniform they wear as a disguise, how much money they have, who their friends are.  Natural law demands balance - and justice will be served one way or the other.  The authorities in this case, like so many before it, made the wrong decision again in defiance of natural law.  Now they can pay the justifiable consequences.


Behind the Arab revolt is a word we dare not speak

"On 16 February, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a speech at George Washington University in which she condemned governments that arrested protestors and crushed free expression. She lauded the liberating power of the internet while failing to mention that her government was planning to close down those parts of the internet that encouraged dissent and truth-telling. It was a speech of spectacular hypocrisy, and Ray McGovern was in the audience. Outraged, he rose from his chair and silently turned his back on Clinton. He was immediately seized by police and a security goon and beaten to the floor, dragged out and thrown into jail, bleeding. He has sent me photographs of his injuries. He is 71. During the assault, which was clearly visible to Clinton, she did not pause in her remarks. "

Heaven Forfend: Charlie Sheen is Angry - the REAL QUESTION IS: WHY AREN'T YOU???!!!!


My fellow apathetic Americans.

Sorry - I hope you aren't insulted - or hurt - I know y'all are sensitive.  No cussing until you put the kids' earplugs in - it's all about the children you know.  Yoga breathing - yeah.......inhale......exhale......down dog......

Listen up folks - if you think there is something wrong with somebody - famous or not - for being angry - pardon me - but I think there is something wrong with YOU!  Anger is a natural human tendency - when things are not SN - but AFU!

I am not a fan of hollywood - don't watch movies or TV since it is almost completely saturated with propaganda, doublespeak and herd-mentality oriented drivel - but reading the alternative media - the ONLY MEDIA - it is impossible to ignore the fact that Charlie Sheen is under attack for "going off."  Why?  I have my opinions but first let's take a look at an article discussing "what's wrong with Charlie Sheen" first"- here is a link to his rant - embedding disabled - with a commercial - they just can't stop sucking money from him:

"The actor, whose outburst against Chuck Lorre was the latest in a long series of headline-grabbing episodes, will speak with NBC News’ Jeff Rossen on the “Today” show on Monday morning.

In the interview, Mr. Sheen “says he is clean, and wants to go back to work, but has one big demand,” according to a statement from “Today.”
In two separate interviews Thursday, Mr. Sheen called Mr. Lorre a “clown” and “charlatan.” In an interview with TMZ, he said, “I violently hate Chaim Levine. He’s a stupid, stupid little man.” Mr. Sheen’s repeated reference to Mr. Lorre by his Hebrew name, Chaim Levine, was seen by executives from CBS and Warner Brothers as a veiled anti-Semitic attack.
In January, Mr. Sheen entered a rehabilitation facility for persistent problems with addiction, putting “Two and a Half Men” on hiatus. Executives at that time chose to wait and see how Mr. Sheen’s condition changed.
In February 2010, Mr. Sheen entered rehabilitation for 18 days. “Two and a Half Men” was temporarily shut down but resumed without being replaced on the CBS schedule."  Read rest here

What - no credit for checking into rehab?  Doesn't that require HUMILITY?  Humility is a rare trait - a trait shared by the most Socratic of ironists.  I suppose the clown-chorus demonizing this patriot would prefer someone in denial?  Give the guy a break - but we'll get to that later.

My heavens!  Charlie Sheen called someone a CLOWN!  That is Sooooo terrible.  Big deal - he didn't punch the clown out now did he?


OK - I like Charlie already - he has an OPINION - unlike most of the robotic Amerikans I know - especially those closest to me - who go to work and take pay cuts like good little sheeple - act horrified when someone lets out the "F word" etc...  But most annoying, to me at least, is the silly innocent-attempted facade they put on - as they demonize someone for having a drug or alcohol "problem" - after all - they themselves don't have a "problem" - they are perfect.  But how can this be true?  Take a look at this

Oh - I get it - nobody in America has a drug or alcohol problem - that is - a "problem" we need to use as ammunition for public ridicule when they "get angy" - or notice something like the FACT that the buildings on 911 were imploded.  Now we have to shoot the messenger - just like good little pathetic NAZIs do.  After all - only Charlie is speaking up while we all sit here with our mouths hanging open with spit dripping out as we stare at our telescreens.  After all - if Charlie is seeing something real - and speaking up - doesn't that make him "crazy" since the rest of us somehow can't seem to grasp what he insists is reality?  Consider the following video - and ask yourself - "Self - is it possible that Charlie is the one-in-a-million (or whatever scientifically discovered-via-testing statistic) , that Charlie is the one-in-a-million that will stick to his guns - trust his own "lyin' eyes" rather than the orchesta of paid-liars in the media who repeat lies over and over in an attempt to present an image of solidarity in agreement of a false reality?

You see my friends - it's called an Ad Hominem attack:

"An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument. Typically, this fallacy involves two steps. First, an attack against the character of person making the claim, her circumstances, or her actions is made (or the character, circumstances, or actions of the person reporting the claim). Second, this attack is taken to be evidence against the claim or argument the person in question is making (or presenting). This type of "argument" has the following form:
  1. Person A makes claim X.
  2. Person B makes an attack on person A.
  3. Therefore A's claim is false.
The reason why an Ad Hominem (of any kind) is a fallacy is that the character, circumstances, or actions of a person do not (in most cases) have a bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim being made (or the quality of the argument being made)."

So - when somebody says something that requires guts - something that requires an obvious deviation from the HERD - stated in a bold manner; like yelling, screaming at someone, or ridiculing the liar with equal insanity - someone risking lots of money - someone people will pause and ask themselves:  "holy smokes - he's risking his career and reputation - maybe I oughta listen - maybe there is something to this..."  - NOW THAT'S THE TIME FOR AN AD HOMINEM ATTACK.

You can see in the penultimate quote above - that Sheen uses somebody's Hebrew name.  I don't know who the guy is - and I really don't care.  So what?  Sheen makes a great point that I agree with.  Don't ever bring up Jewish - for anything, because you will be publicly destroyed via Ad Hominem attacks.  But- for the record - it is OK to consider conspiracy/clownery charges to be leveled at someone when it comes to Italian or Sicilian folks - that would be  Mafia.  But Jewish people cannot be considered as clowns/conspirators.  HOGWASH.

Oh - here's another thing that struck me about the "executives" waiting to see how Charlie faired in rehab - HA HA HA HA.  They were waiting because he was reeling in the big bucks and the big audiences.  I never saw the show - but c'mon - corporate America?  All they care about is the almighty (well.....not any more)   dollar.  Their dollar.  So they waited for more profits - they don't care if the guy is doing OK or not.  They are swine.

The minute Charlie expresses an opinion - well - right under the bus.  Yeah - it was nice knowin' ya' while you made us a fortune - but .....gotta' go.  Don't need bad publicity.  (Bad publicity = criticism of someone using their Hebrew name)

My friends, gentle readers - remember - corporate America doesn't care about you one iota.  You're on your own - I'm saying that at the risk of insulting you - 'cause I don't know how in the world anyone
can't know that.



EVERYBODY HAS TO DO THEIR PART.  GET CRAZY.  GET ANGRY.  THE HELL WITH "remaining calm."  What?  Remain calm while you dig your own grave before being shot?

It is time to stand up like a citizen of the greatest nation in recorded history - the United States of America.

Together we can take our country back.  Listen to Charlie Sheen with an open mind- and ask yourself why you aren't just as angry?


Night of the Long Knives

Once extrajudicial killing becomes the law of the land...well - it's time to eliminate the opposition.  Just a history lesson everybody oughta keep in mind.

Video: American Raymond Davis' police interview after shooting two Pakistanis dead

"The case of Raymond Davis has convulsed Pakistan, opening a fresh seam of anti-American anger and unleashing a wave of speculation about what an American diplomat was doing driving alone in a Honda Civic through the streets of Lahore with a Glock handgun."

Diplomat Raymond Davis - kills three in Pakistan

diplomat |ˈdipləˌmat|nounan official representing a country abroad. a person who can deal with people in a sensitive and effective way.*


"They were close by when, in a crowded intersection, Davis produced his own handgun and fired seven shots. The diplomat was apparently a crack shot, and all seven bullets found their mark, killing his two pursuers. Davis then called for back-up, and a four-wheel-drive vehicle raced onto the scene, striking a Pakistani bystander who was killed by the impact. But the people in the vehicle, whose identities remain unknown, escaped from the scene having failed to retrieve Davis, who was later arrested nearby. In custody, Davis has told Pakistani authorities that he acted in self-defense, and has invoked diplomatic immunity, an international convention that protects diplomats from prosecution in the countries where they serve."

Some diplomat.  No wonder everybody hates us.  This guy guns two human beings down and a third is killed by a vehicle.  Three dead people.  Some diplomatic skills.  But this is Amerikan diplomacy these days.  No wonder everybody hates us.

What about the family of the innocent bystander?(**see update at bottom wife of shooting victim kills self)

"Lawyer Asad Manzoor Butt said the family of the struck bystander, Ibadur Rehman, filed a petition with the Lahore High Court seeking to bring attention to his death, which has received far less scrutiny than the deaths of the two men shot earlier Jan. 27 in Lahore.

The U.S. has begun curbing diplomatic contacts and threatened to withhold aid if Davis is not freed, with President Barack Obama stressing the importance of upholding agreements covering diplomatic immunity.
Davis faces potential murder charges. He is in a Pakistani jail and is on a list barring him from leaving the country, officials said."
Oh them!  Those pesky civilians who get in the way every time our diplomats need to shoot a coupla' people to death.  Can't this family just shut up?  Don't they understand Amerikan "diplomacy" when they see it?  Or is that the problem?  They know what American diplomacy is and they want it to stop.
I am appalled and ashamed to pay taxes to support these bloodthirsty gunslingers.  I see absolutely no respect for human life.  Oh - did I mention that he was supposedly meeting with people who are supposed to be our enemy to provide them with weapons for a false-flag attack on us?
"Double murder-accused US official Raymond Davis has been found in possession of top-secret CIA documents, which point to him or the feared American Task Force 373 (TF373) operating in the region, providing Al-Qaeda terrorists with "nuclear fissile material" and "biological agents," according to a report."
Nothing like a double-murder charge with an extra dead person as icing on the cake to put on your resume as a Diplomat from Amerika!  The fact is we cannot believe anything our own government via the MSM tell us.  It is all lies.  The false-flag attack is THE method by which fear will be instilled into the American public - and THE method by which the heat will be controlled to keep things at a nice rolling boil.  In this state - Americans cannot think for themselves and simply go along with anything the military-industrial-terrorismindustry-complex demands.  Yes - we are talking about adult American males standing by while authorities tell their wives and children to "put their hands up and pull their pants down."  

Cowering in fear is not behaviour becoming of free citizens.  False-flag attacks upon the nation to continue resource-wars and other wars of aggression are not acceptable as "leadership."  These are forms of control indicative of NAZIs and Fascists.  

I implore you, reader, if you cherish your rights to life, liberty, property, and pursuit of happiness - to pay as close attention as possible to the man behind the curtain.  Realization that there is a "backstory" is an important step to seeing through the propaganda.  Until you can fathom the extent to which power-hungry members of our government will go to retain their power - you will never see the false reality created to control you and yours.

Together we can take our country back.

Coming Soon: Canadian Troops on US Soil?

Yes - I know. A conspiracy theory right? Or is it a sell-out by American officials to a supra-national power? Are you ready to see Canadian soldiers in US cities? Are you ready to obey their orders at gunpoint? What will you do if they have to shoot a member of your family?

"Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other’s borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.

Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.

The U.S. military’s Northern Command, however, publicized the agreement with a statement outlining how its top officer, Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.

The new agreement has been greeted with suspicion by the left wing in Canada and the right wing in the U.S. 

Read the rest  here.

Does this mean that only "right wingers" are concerned that foreign troops may come down from Canada to point rifles at their daughters?  That can't possibly be true.  There have to be some citizens other than "right wingers" that have sense enough to ask why we need soldiers from a foreign land on U.S. soil.  Especially since our own soldiers have answered that they would actually shoot American citizens as seen in this video where they confiscate weapons:  "You mean shoot an American?  Yeah."

What will Canadians do if American soldiers have to shoot Canadian civilians - for whatever reason?  

Of course it is only a crazy "conspiracy theory" - just like every other uncomfortable step towards globalism and the loss of national sovereignty.  

So you can either see things for what they are or keep telling yourself that it's all just a conspiracy theory - while the facts march by with each passing hour - agendas of the globalists emplaced without public debate or approval.

...and don't forget the best part - YOU PAY FOR THE BULLETS!


Those obeying illegal orders deserve to be punished.  

War for Sale-Behind the Scenes - Vids

All the propaganda tools used then are used now. There is nothing new in the art of selling and financing a war. Each of these is the first of a series - in the interest of saving space I didn't put the rest of the series on this page.

The same skullduggery went on behind the scenes for WW2. Hitler had backers for sure. Who are the backers of the wars today? We all know the military-industrial-educational-federalwork complex get more and more money with each redline of the fear-o-meter. Schopenhaur behind the scenes - etc... Same thing continues today. Notice also how the idea of the secret society was picked up in Asia by the Germans and brought back to Germany as a way to work behind the scenes to advance agendas.


Open Carry Stop in Livermore III

Note:  I'm surprised at the negative comments abusing the citizen on the YouTube page.  The video does a lot to highlight assumptions.  If the citizen was not as well informed as he is ...  Once they heard he really knew what he was talking about it seems things changed.  But he was still searched in the end.

Something about police behavior isn't right.  They don't seem interested in protecting the rights of citizens.  It seems to me that the law is written there in California to allow harassment of the citizen open carrying.  Meanwhile the real criminals just load up a stolen gun and stick in in their pocket out of view until they need to murder someone.

Reminds me of the time my nephew tried to buy a pack of smokes in California.  The guy at the store "carded" him and when he handed the clerk his drivers license - the clerk didn't know what a Pennsylvania was.

I wonder if law enforcement people even know what they are really hired to do?  It doesn't look that way.  I see an "us vs. them" mentality meaning an attitude that the public is some unruly mob they have to bully into submission - like a kid who gets their school bus patrol badge for the first time.
In this one they have another cop standing ready to gun him down...
UPDATE: Here's a good one ...dash cam


Who Stole the People's Money? Cartoons from yesteryear.


Who stole the people's money?  Who indeed?  A timeless question one asks at their own risk - or not for a reward ...that is... if they are willing to "play the game."

"In September 1869, Nast began his campaign in Harper's Weekly against William Tweed, the corrupt political leader of New York City. Pressure was put on Harper Brothers, the company that produced the magazine, and when it refused to sack Nast, the company lost the contract to provide New York schools with books. Nast himself was offered a bribe of $500,000 to end his campaign. This was hundred times the salary of $5,000 that the magazine paid him but Nast still refused and eventually Tweed was arrested and imprisoned for corruption. Nast's campaign against Tweed was later described as "the finest and most effective political cartooning ever done in the United States.""  Pic above and quote from here

Conspiracy?  No.  Documented historical fact.  


Some things never change.  It used to be the "80/20 Rule" where 20 percent of the people do 80% of the work.  Not any more.  

There is no 20% in the mainstream media - they are spokesmodels skilled in the art of reading a teleprompter.  Kind of like typing up a hand-written paper - you don't really have to read it - in the eyes and out the fingertips.  

In the case of the wooden-headed puppets on TV - Most "reporters" these days - no more than members of a government propaganda apparatus here in the 'States - they just take the money.  The good ones, that are left, suffer the crushing weight of the political machine that controls public perception if they dare to "get out of line."  ("Get out of line" = Asking REAL challenging questions that matter in public.) Here is a recent casualty.


We all know this.  But it's fun to see that things have been this bad and worse before.  The good guys can and do win.  Notice that Thomas Nast was not a venal man.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses.  Just remember that the good guys win if they show the backbone - keep asking questions.  Turn up the heat.

from http://www.thomasnast.com/TheCartoons/NastCartoons.htm
And don't worry about people complaining about so-called "hate speech."  It really doesn't exist.  It is just a matter of who needs a pesky detective who smells a rat to shut up.  It's been pretty nasty in the past - and it was just part of a necessary debate in the public forum.  For example:

from http://www.indiana.edu/~liblilly/cartoon/monkey.html
Conclusion:  The act of exercising your right to freedom of speech IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH.  The only people who "hate us for our freedoms" are those trying to take them away.

Prescription:  To maintain a healthy nation, exercise unbounded freedom of speech always.


Thomas Jefferson's "Swiss Army Knife" - picture through glass

The "clock" in the back is an odometer (CLICK).  Before they built this new visitors center, the old visitors center contained what I remember to be this set of items, and the set was called "Jefferson's pockets."  In the old visitors center - this display set contained an additional item:  A pistol with a removable barrel.  The pistol is no longer on display with this set.  When I inquired as to why it was no longer there - I was told that "it was taken off display."  Since I could already see that - I asked about the decision process.  They told me it could have been removed for any number of reasons.  I didn't inquire any further.

I haven't been up there for a coupla' months - maybe they'll put it back - so the kids can see that Thomas Jefferson wasn't allergic to guns.  Or maybe they already have.  I think it would be a good idea.

UPDATE 2/19/11  The "lighter" is a case for the mini-draftng set spread out.  I think the "ruler" is a tiny engineers scale, and the "feeler gauges" are ivory sheets riveted together to slide, a mini-notebook you write on and erase with a pencil.  Notes still on there.

I like his approach to helping people think for themselves. Watch this video and think about the big picture out there.

Colombian military seizes 100-foot drug sub capable of holding 8 tons of cocaine (VIDEO)

"The fiberglass sub, which was seized in a jungle in Timbiqui, near the Colombia's southwestern Pacific coast, could carry a crew of four to six people, had two diesel engines and navigational equipment allowing it to remain fully submerged up to 30 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, navy officials said.

It also had a 16 ½ foot periscope and an air-conditioner to keep the crew cool during the trip. Authorities estimated it cost about $2 million to build."

Jordan Maxwell, "Godfather of Secret Societies" and New World Order Shill

Note: This is why religion has no place in government. Jordan Maxwell, and his critic that makes this video - get lost in religious esoterica - while the train moves down the track - that is - TSA gets more power - the wars continue - we lose our property to international bankers via the Federal reserve.

As far as I know - our problems exist here on Earth. Our problems are traceable to people - just like you and me - who use their positional power to abuse the system to their advantage. They use a private self-serving media they own to keep us in the dark.

These religious discussions get us no where. They are interesting and have their place - but they have no place in the political process - except in understanding the motives of those who have no place in government.


Senator Rand Paul Statement on PATRIOT Act Renewal

"“Last night, there was little debate, no committee hearings held, no amendments allowed, and no examination of whether our government had lived up to its responsibility to protect the liberty of the people. I commend the House for rejecting the renewal of the PATRIOT Act on these grounds,” Sen. Paul said.

“The fight will continue in the House over the next week. It is likely that even with this temporary victory, the House will pass these extensions and send the PATRIOT Act renewal to the Senate. And when they do, I will oppose it,” he continued."

Navy spent $450,000 of taxpayer money on Super Bowl flyover... when the stadium roof was shut

"The U.S. Navy has been criticised for spending almost half a million dollars of taxpayers' money on a flyover at the Super Bowl - while the stadium roof was closed.

The estimated $450,000 expense was for four fighter jets that flew from Virginia to Texas and over the retractable roof of Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
As it was broadcast on screens at the Super Bowl XLV on Sunday, spectators inside the stadium got the same view as people watching the five-second shot at home."

Note:   The roof was closed, the roof was closed - did you hear?  The roof was closed.  And we are to believe they just flew down there on a bloody joy-ride - you know they do it all the time.  $450,000 here, and $450,000 there - what the hell - there's more money where that came from.  

 Boy oh boy - I wonder how they will blame this one on the enlisted?  There goes the recruiting budget - I guess they'll have to hand out pay cuts to the recruiters to pay for this one.  Oh - and YOU will have to get a fifth job!
