One of the clearest indications you live in a police state – or one well on its way to becoming one – is “rules for us” (you and me) and “rules for them” (government officials and enforcers). This manifests in numerous ugly ways, the latest being the controversy over an app called Waze. Among other…

the WHY shows up

Yesterday I assembled information and links to a number of glaring oddities surrounding the Ferguson protests, riots, arsons and responses. Clearly USofA federal agents are doing some of the damage and a lot of the stirring up (see Ferguson, protests, looting, violence). I could figure some of their motivations, but felt I was missing something.…

I am more troubled by Ebola than anything else mainstream media is shoving in faces of the masses. I fear THEY are really onto something this time.
