Provocative Thoughts While Touring a Park:

Chapter One: Provocative Thoughts While Touring a Park: By Sam Staples from book subtitled: The Authoritarian Nature of the Three Abrahamic Religions: as When God Became the Terrorist: The major thesis of this book is that authoritarianism, as a “human” personality trait, throughout history, has influenced both the “creation” and the “interpretation”, of religious and political dogma, and that this was even more so before there was a constituted division between Church and State.

Are You Scheduled for Political Termination? HR 1955 & S.1959

By Ross Stone

Stop the “The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act."

Could be used by Government to add thousands of activist organizations and millions of Americans to no travel lists.

Starting February 2008, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will put into effect “Advance Passenger Information System (APIS).” U.S. Citizens will need permission from the United States Government to travel on air and sea vessels from or through the U.S. That includes foreign visitors.

Alternative Monetary Systems

The truth is,there is something terribly wrong with this world,isn't there ?
Cruelty and injustice,intolerance,oppression,poverty and financial crises.
There's an old saying that borrower is slave to the lender.
In simple terms the new money comes into circulation through the banking system,
issued as a debt to the banking system.

Consequences :

- Eternal war economy,
- False education,
- Inflation and other taxes,
- Hard dependency,
- Little free time.

At the end of 2007,Central Banks give biggest liquidity boost ever.
The European Central Bank alone lent over half a trillion dollars (€349bn)
to lenders for two weeks in an unlimited auction.

Gay/Lesbian Equality

During this winter solstice time in America some of you will consider again the birth of babies in unlikely places, such as a particular middle-eastern stable during the Roman era approximately 2,000 years ago. And while reading about the 2007 Sissy Awards at www.advocate.com I got to thinking about another unlikely birth place, a particular lesbian womb of the early 21st century.

Fencing-Out the "Aliens": another lesson of ignorance, futility and profiteering

"The ongoing promotion of a bad idea does NOT make it a better option!" --- Dr. Peter Stern


Despite the majority of public opinion AGAINST building the border fence between Mexico and The United States, it appears Americans will get the fence whether or not they want it or even if it won't work keeping out illegal immigrants, which it won't.

Like so many other urgent issues, our elected officials refuse to look for rational and significant resolutions for the increasing and overwhelming numbers of illegals entering the U.S. every year.

Black Cop Writes Book on His Hatred of Inner-city Criminals...

Victim... I Am Not!
A Slave of His Mentality has the Mentality of a Slave.
PHILADELPHIA, PA.- November 8, 2007 - They're young, They're dangerous
and they are determined to cause eternal doom on the world. Young
African American Males contributed to 80% of violent crime in Kansas
City, even though African Americans were merely less than 30% of the
population. Philadelphia is over 50% African American and has over 230
murdered young African American men, but who is to blame? According to
some African American leaders of racial equality, African American
genocide is a direct result of slavery, a part of history that can
never be erased, thus resulting in a perpetual cycle of crime amongst
African Americans. Philadelphian , and University of Pennsylvania
professor who has coined himself the "Social Scientist" abides by this
belief, and avidly speaks out against anyone who says different. Dr.
Bill Cosby one of the most well know Philadelphians is currently
campaigning around the country against this logic buy emphasizing that

9/11 was a Mossad job

by Christopher Bollyn
28 June 2002

Israeli Agents Nabbed On 9-11 Admit:
“Our Purpose Was To Document The Event”

 


Update: Three of the five "dancing Israelis" appeared on an Israeli television show to explain that they were sent to document the event. Here is an excerpt of them:

See our summary of reasons why 9/11 was a Zionist job:

Plus, we discuss this in an audio file:
DarylBradfordSmith_Bollyn-Hufschmid-11Sep2006.html

The Zionists justify their knowledge of the attack by claiming they had followed the Arab terrorists and discovered their dastardly plans.

The Zionists claim to have warned a few government employees of the upcoming attack, but they never bothered to tell their friends in the news organizations.

2008 GOP Presidential and VP Team Giuliani and Perry: Welcome to the Sewers of the U.S.

Demi-Gods or Demons? You be the judge.
Of the 2 men Giuliani is the better-known nationally, but neither one deserves the support of his GOP party or the American people.
You have to take your hat off to Texas Governor Rick Perry. Only in America --- specifically Texas --- could a governor who won only 39-percent of the total votes get reelected without a run-off and then set his sights on being Vice President of the U.S.! How could that be?
Three reasons:
1. Perry continues to do everything for his wealthy corporate special interests and they in turn provide him with huge campaign dollars, high-end perks and their undying support
2. There were 4 contenders in the last gubernatorial race of which only 1 was a viable contender, 2 were independents, 1 a Libertine; consequently, Texas voters were flim-flammed unsure of how to cast their votes, although it was clear that most did NOT want Perry reelected
