Man, I'm so sick of self-righteous, hypocritical,

the same with the damn drug laws and the crying

Syria really evil?
the militant party formed to resist Israel's

BushCo, president of the country that stands
head and shoulders above the rest in terms
of military help and interference if foreign
countries, hypocritically demands that Syria
remove troops in the name of Lebanese "freedom,"
and that Hezbollah disarm.
Where has Lebanese resistance to Syrian presence
been for 25 years? Only small voices, possibly
Israeli/US instigated, have protested against.
What Dubya means is that both of his demands
would leave Lebanon much more vulnurable,
and reduce resistance to Zionazi agendas in
the region. However, Lebanon is a complex

in the world? Israel, of course, if you use
the correct definition of Semite, and don't
fall for the erroneous expression created

For the record--it's not "the Jews,"
or "the French," "the Americans,"
and so on, but the elite bloodlines within
these that underlie most chaos in the world.
Elite servants pose as this or that category,
but it's just a convenient front, not heartfelt.

6 Mar '05 Article: Housing boom a drain on
Leominster's water supply
some light dawning at last?
we've gotten carried away with housing development
(vis-a-vis water--traffic-wise and almost
every other way, we're well over the top)?
There seems to be some differences of opinion,
but it's good to see the concern and attention.
The article says that 60% of our water consumption
is now residential.
Conservation Agent Matthew Marro says we have
a spare capacity of 250,000 to 500,000 gallons/day
before hitting the redline. Not mentioned,
however, is the effect of the unknown: a major
drought that defies our historical pattern.
My uneducated guess is that it wouldn't take
long to initiate a serious crisis.
Water will be even more of a crisis issue
in the next decade than oil. Water tables
are increasingly becoming polluted. We may
have plenty of water, but it's drinkability
could become NOT.
One of the worst things done to municipal
water is the addition of chlorine. Numerous
poisonous compounds can result. Equally as
bad, if not worse--and never mentioned--is
that chlorine, because it kills bacteria indiscriminately,
has a serious negative impact on the populations
of the life-giving bacteria that are supposed
to inhabit our GI tract. This is a major reason
I won't drink the water coming out of my tap

either). I wonder how many people do drink
Do people know that testing is done only for
about 20 pollutants out of thousands, and
that no further testing is done unless a 'problem'
arises? Welcome to guinea-pig city.
Perhaps the stupidest thing we do with our
water is mix human waste with it, and then
spend millions trying to separate it again--with
incomplete success. Countries that don't have
water 'to burn' don't use flush toilets, but
dry composting toilets. Such common sense
could save us huge amounts of water, but of
course might not sit well with the squeamish,
convenience-driven American psyche. But I
challenge anyone who champions flush toilets
to drink a glass of effluent from the wastewater
Leominster Mayor "Mazzalini" makes
an interesting comment in light of the residential
consumption rate: "You'd have to build
a hundred thousand houses to have any impact
on water usage." Really, Dino? Is this
why we have alternate-days bans in most summers?
By the way, if we were not killing our internal
bacteria and eating an arguably insane diet,
our 'stuff' wouldn't stink to high heaven
(not normal, as many believe, but Nature's
warning of serious imbalance), thus reducing
the associated squeamishness. If it were up
to me, all new houses would require composting
toilet systems, and eventually, all toilets
possible would be converted.

Dear Representatives Bosley and Finegold,
I'm a Leominster resident, and so not your
constituent; but I respectfully request that

research. As a Holistic wellness consultant
and health writer, I'd like to offer a perspective
that may not have been, and may not be, aired
in the discussions--not to presume anything.
is that "adult" versus "embryonic" is not the fundamental
issue, but that stem cell research per se is the issue. Such research
applied to many "incurable" diseases should be strongly curtailed
because it is redundant, whereas application to injury and/or birth
defects is much more justifiable, with one caveat. The difference in
the two scenarios is one of conferring wellness versus crisis intervention.
Redundancy (not exclusive to stem cell research)
arises because most of the chronic disease
said to be in stem-cell's sights, such as
diabetes, is already curable--outside the
monopolistic constrictions of conventional
background to what's being said here, I've attached a PDF file with
my Premise for the Discussion of Health
Issues, which I use in my practice to facilitate client understanding
of a holistic view. Please peruse it after reading this (it's not long).
And please feel free to contact me with questions or for further information.
I began studying health in the '70s. Toward
the end of that decade, I began to come across
more and more books and articles showing that
something other than the intent to "cure"
was at work in the medical system, and indeed
was controlling it. Studying the history of
medicine reveals that this influence was present
from the inception of the American Medical
Association, and was, in fact, the motivation
behind its formation. In a word, that motive
Providing a foundation for executing the profit
motive in conventional medicine is the medical
paradigm, or guiding philosophy, which can
strongly be argued to be flawed. It was solidified
in the 19th century in France under the aegis
of Louis Pasteur and the French Academy of
Science, and has become gospel--even though
Pasteur recanted on his deathbed.
The upshot is, the 'no cure' status is true
only within a narrow limit of methods, within
a carefully controlled definition of what
is being cured, what is allowed to be called
a cure, and what may be controlled financially
by pharmaceutical interests and the corporate
There are numerous books and articles, many
written by MDs, that document a century of
organized resistance to, and suppression of,
safe and effective treatments for disease--not
to mention persecution of their discoverers.
One example is the decades of arrogant rejection
out of hand of the ancient art of acupuncture.
Another is the clear conviction and reprimand
of the AMA in 1989 for purposely trying to
destroy the chiropractic profession.
harsh reality is, there happens to be far
more money in research and ineffective treatment
(see "Premise...") than there is
in any cure which might be found. What's more,
most illness could be prevented in the first
place--that is, we're spending billions looking
for cures for the effects of our way of life
and, in many cases, for the side effects of
conventional medical practice itself. The
most common denominator in both cases is 'simple'
poisoning, or toxic damage to tissues and
organs. At least 110,000 people are literally
being killed annually by medical drugs.
Therefore, we should not be overly impressed
with "technology and science" (see
"Premise..."). Health is a lot simpler.
I suggest that the push for stem cell research
is driven much more by corporate interests
than by the potential for cures. Furthermore,
since stem cell treatment of diseases would
not address the fundamental cause of diseases
(see "Premise..."), it could result,
as past medical 'wonders' have, in a new wave
of serious illness.
Caveat: The flaws inherent in conventional
medical philosophy underlie many of society's
habitual assumptions about health, and thus
our behavior. This in itself gives rise to
medical/health crises by undermining health
awareness. For example, spina bifida was a
great mystery until the folate connection
was found. Here it's easy to see that a deficiency
of one small fraction of a vitamin complex
can result in a horrendous condition. Until
recently, medicine traditionally neglected
nutrition (dietetics doesn't count). Even
today most doctors get 20 hours or less of
nutritional training in school.
I also request you to look
at this page as an example of dangerous
health unawareness in a mother and brutalizingly
unaware treatment by doctors, who were following
medical protocol. All this ended in the death
of a child, and could have been prevented.

went careening off the track by adopting as
gospel Louis Pasteur's half-baked germ theory

doctrine and 'victim' mentality. All very

diseases that could affect a woman's pregnancy

could that be because the
elite had grabbed control of medicine
and were seeing to it that the principles
of wellness were buried, like those fetuses,
under a pile of conventional medical dogma
designed to perpetuate illness?

of a gallon of gasoline.

The first bit of nonsense is that "antiviral
drugs are being stockpiled." Antivirals
are chemotherapeutic drugs--intense poisons.
But the deadlier the so-called disease, the
Frankenstein Gospel therapeutic index allows
correspondingly more deadly drugs to be used,
so that when the person dies from the drug,
the cause is masked by the deadliness of the
Second bit: 2 million doses are being stored
in bulk form for possible emergency use. Well,
the article states further on that so far
the virus, which is present in 8 Asian countries,
is being "caught" directly from
chickens, and not passed among humans. The
worry is that the virus will mutate into a
form that can be passed between humans. If
it mutates, what good is the very strain-specific
stored vaccine going to be? Zero.
Third bit: UN officials warn that the Asian
bird flu outbreak poses the "gravest
possible danger" of becoming a global
pandemic. Oooohhhh! Love that fear. Did you
ever wonder where the "disease"
breaks out of? Where do these viruses hang
out until they decide to travel the globe
and kill everyone? Couldn't be a biolab somewhere,
I don't suppose. Is this another SARS scam?
Fourth bit: An experimental vaccine is being
prepared and is going to be tested for safety.
Are they going to test it for "safety"
on chickens? People? They're also going to
test for the correct dosages for "the
elderly, children, and healthy young people."
How are they going to do this?
"The elderly, children, and healthy young
people" really means a crapshoot. Are
all elderly, children and healthy young people
identical? And what of unhealthy young people?
Or the unhealthy elderly? Or unhealthy children?
No vaccine has been proven safe and effective
in the past. Studies claiming to show short-term
safety testing have been junk science, bought
and paid for by the industry. No long-term
safety studies have ever been done. No one
even knows how long to test for. Do we think
they're going to start now, or, if so, that
they have the time, given the "gravest
possible danger" of a global pandemic?
bit: They're going to store the 2 mil bulk
doses to see if it can be produced in advance
and stored. How many holes in this. Preservatives
are already used in vaccines, one of which
is the poisonous thimerosal, a mercury derivative
which is being removed from some vaccines.
But whatever preserving method is used, it's
hard to imagine they don't already have a
sense of shelf life after a century of vaccine

an exceptionally inappropriate use of the
astronomical cost, in both money and energy,
of building such a facility is beyond obscene,
and one question is, how much will it cost
to make it absolutely earthquake-proof. We
sit on a major fault line in NE. Even without
a quake, the lab is every bit as threatening
to us as what it falsely purports to thwart:
The Pentagon has stated that its goal is to
develop genetically engineered biological
weapons in order to discover defenses against
them. If you believe that, you must still
think there are WMD in Iraq. Do we think other
nations will accept this at face value?
creation of this caliber cannot be undertaken
without huge financing. No cave-dwelling terrorist
or cell network is going to create such a
threat on their own. But it could be supported
behind the scenes by the Frankensteinian technomasturbators
of the industry who enjoy these sick games
and want to play their protection-racket card.
This is an old corporate game that got into
motion in WW I.
should all read "A Higher Form of Killing
: The Secret History of Chemical and Biological
Warfare" by Harris and Paxman (that could
read "sordid history"). Another
instructive text is "Death in the Air,"
by Len Horowitz. Both books reveal that global
industry influence has more to do with instigating
these threats than people realize (moreso
than governments). Both also reveal clandestine
bio-experiments on a hapless American public.
insanity has spun out of control, and is itself
the biggest threat to America and to the planet,
with all its massive environmental insults,
including knocking off whales with sound waves,
lacing the skies with poison chemtrails, and
disposing of nuclear waste in weaponry. Pentagon
also wants to bypass State and send Special
Operations commandos into any country to
kill suspected terrorists.
bunker-busting and 'limited' nukes, along
with most of the other trappings of the so-called
War on Terror, this is another BushCo scam
that fattens corporations and researchers
while wasting resources that could be applied
for a positive future. Roxbury, the target
community, should be up in arms against this
monstrosity, and we all should be there with
