the end of terror

“This does not make me a “constitutionalist” or describable by any other such monicker that prissy victim disarmers and their bought-and- paid-for blackhearts want to hang on me. It makes me an American. And it makes them criminals.” – L.Neil Smith Behind Every Blade of Grass by L.Neil Smith This has been an interesting week—interesting in the sense of the Chinese curse “May you live in interesting times.” My current desktop wallpaper consists of a photo I found online, sent out by some civil rights organization, announcing that Connecticut gun owners were ignoring the new, Draconian laws intended to disarm them, and that only 4% of the weapons and ammunition affected by the law had been registered. Four percent of […]

vaccine safety

Vaccines are safe. Vaccines are effective. Vaccines should be mandatory. So why are the vaccine manufacturers indemnified against lawsuit for defective or harmful products? Why did the federal government (our money) pay out over 3 billion dollars to vaccine injured through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund since it was inaugurated in 1986? If the science is strong, mandates are unnecessary. Simply prove your case by answering the challenges. When science is weak, politics makes the case. Ask Galileo how he fared challenging the politically powerful “science” of the day. Below is a compendium of research backed by science in the true sense of the word. If you are ready to challenge the orthodoxies such as “the Universe moves about […]

winter finally resumed

It has been a long Spring season through much of January and February. It started making me feel I should be planting some annuals. But Winter finally returned with some genuine snow and moderately cold weather. The good news is that cute cabin over there with the lovely view of snow covered ground set off by the Bitterroot River running by my window. I’ve never had it better. I also got some exercise … quiet, peaceful, meaningful I think it was 3-4 inches of nice powder. I do miss the concrete I had in Grangeville. Shoveling snow off gravel is harder work. I also noticed that none of my neighbors have parking lots. They park directly off the lane, having […]

net neutrality

How neutral is a government-controlled monopoly? No matter how much you could afford to, you will not get permission to broadcast television or radio shows. TV news all looks alike, carries the same stories (as if that’s all that happened in the world in the last 24 hours) and coincides perfectly with the government’s goals. Thank you, FCC for television neutrality. But they have a HUGE problem with the Internet. People like me keep publishing information that Big Brother has neither scripted nor approved of. They have floated several ideas for “fixing” this. None have flown. They are raising the “net neutrality” flag once again to see if we salute it. We absolutely, resolutely must BURN IT There is nothing […]

war stories

What did you do in the war, Grampa? Well … I … Uh … I… Well… I, uh, I held the commoners down while the elites raped them. What’s it going to be like in 30 years for those JBTs who spent the early part of the 21st Century cracking skulls, chemically spraying, gunning down and in so many other ways assaulting people who merely wanted to go about their lives? How will the enablers explain to their roles to offspring? How will the NSA geeks who capture, record, orchestrate, manipulate and regurgitate everything we do put a proud face on the fascist world they created? It is one thing to ignore the reality of your life when you are […]

In Praise of Mediocrity

Where Brian Williams went wrong Steve Chapman I rise today to speak in praise of an underappreciated attribute: mediocrity. Oh, I can hear the comments already: “Who better to do it?” “Finally, something you’re an expert on.” “You should only hope to achieve mediocrity!” But I will not be deterred. As kids, we are always told to admire those who are the best at anything and to strive to attain the highest level in whatever we do. But a flurry of scandals suggest the world would be better off if more people would settle for being adequate. Brian Williams was more than adequate at the only things required of him: looking good in a suit and reading the news without […]

Inherent Defectiveness of Public Schooling

Jacob G. Hornberger from the Future of Freedom Foundation The Washington Post reported yesterday that an outgoing superintendent of public schools in Montgomery County, Maryland, Joshua P. Starr, is lamenting the short tenure of school superintendents. Starr took the job of school superintendent in 2011 and is now leaving because he failed to garner the support of the local school board.Starr stated, “I think the expectations for the superintendent can be not aligned with reality sometimes. People want to see dramatic improvement quickly. The expectation that a superintendent can do it alone I think just doesn’t work well. And we also have to comply with the accountability regs from the state and the feds. Unfortunately, all too many believers in […]

fixing bad dreams

I understand the dream state of sleep, also known as REM or rapid-eye-movement sleep, to come when we have had enough deep sleep. It is no less important, but we can get by without it if necessary. I have outgrown giving great meaning to my dreams… it’s just your mind doing random exercises like running down trails in the woods. This one occasionally shows up where I have to drive an incredibly steep bridge that gets steeper as I go up until it is almost impossibly straight up. I was quite surprised recently to find that something like it actually exists: the River Island Bridge in Japan. I think I won’t go there. I mean, it would be tempting fate […]

42 ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

Posted on February 9, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog Painting by Anthony Freda Governments from Around the World Admit They Do It There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes. In the following 42 instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admits to it, either orally or in writing: (1) Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the […]

newfangled apple-a-day may kill you

GMOs invade fruit industry: Apples, pears, cherries and peaches to all become unlabeled GMO Learn more: (NaturalNews) Genetically modified apples have been approved by the industry-corrupted USDA, a federal regulator that accomplishes for the biotech industry the same thing the FDA achieves for Big Pharma: unlimited profits, lax regulation and a ready willingness to accept fabricated “science” as fact. “The USDA’s environmental review received 73,000 comments that overwhelmingly opposed the commercialization of Arctic Apples,” explains a press release from Food & Water Watch. [1] The GMO apple that just received approval was developed by the Okanagan Specialty Fruits company, which says it “…married the best of nature with the best of science.” The road to Hell, of course, […]

in the news

In this morning’s “newspaper”, the Rational Review Digest is one of my sources) I found several excellent articles I would like to share with you. I just couldn’t decide which one(s). So today I give you excerpts with links to the full articles. – Ted A Father’s Personal Struggle with the Vaccine Debate The Dissident Dad … Nine months ago, on April 18th, I was sitting in a maternity room with my 12-hour-old daughter. When a nurse came in to immunize her from hepatitis B, a disease known to be transmitted only from sex, blood transfusions, and child birth only IF the mother has the virus. Knowing my newborn daughter hadn’t had sex, hadn’t had a blood transfusion, and that […]

independent learning

from Wired .com The Techies Who Are Hacking Education by Homeschooling Their Kids A couple of weeks ago, I wandered into the hills north of the UC Berkeley campus and showed up at the door of a shambling Tudor that was filled with lumber and construction equipment. Samantha Matalone Cook, a work-at-home mom in flowing black pants and a nose ring, showed me around. Cook and her family had moved into the house in April and were in the middle of an ambitious renovation. “Sorry,” Cook said, “I didn’t tell you we were in a construction zone.” A construction zone, it turns out, that doubles as a classroom. We walked into the living room where Cook’s two sons, Parker and […]
