12 Apr '05 Syndicated editorial, Dan Thomasson:
Second thoughts on Patriot Act
Patriot Act after 9/11 = Enabling Act after
Reichstag fire in Weimar Republic.
We now know the Reichstag event was staged
by Hitler. Similarly, 9/11 was staged, and
both were designed to consolidate hate for
'enemies' and to remove civil rights and freedoms
based on fear. Hitler was granted dictatorial
powers because of that "terrorist attack."
Hitler demanded expanded powers to "deal
with this threat." The Weimar Republic
constitution was suspended and the government
was empowered to arrest anyone they wanted
to for any reason--especially for dissent.
Thomasson says that in the US a similar attempt
to abridge freedom was considered by the Nixon
Admin, but didn't go forward because of the
threat to basic liberties: "Now the same
reasons, and they are good ones, are being
cited by a growing number of citizens legitimately
worried about how far the American system
can be bent in the name of saving it, without
doing more damage than the terrorists it is
designed to foil."
Thomasson makes a good case. The only thing
he leaves out is that terrorism is an elite
People, get a clue! We are in the hands of
evil deal-makers, not authentic American leaders.
We must fiercely lobby Congress to stop this
juggernaut and preserve this nation. We must
also fearlessly examine the strong evidence
that 9/11 was an inside job. Above all, we
must not be afraid to PAY THE PRICE OF FREEDOM.

Propaganda and pandering--little boys posturing

by far, but one condoned, encouraged and programmed
by greedmongers with a near-constant media
assault: licentious consumerism.
and more shoppers from outside area spending at local large-scale retailers."
Such a whoop-de-do. This is a PR campaign by the paper, which looks
forward to advertising revenue. "Wal-Mart and Target are on the
way," says S&E with bulging eyes.
this Conehead consumerism is good for anything but compensation for
a psychospiritual void is beside the point. Whether such frivolous distraction
and misplaced priority reflect or drive any psychological problems is
also beside the point. It's money, money, money. More , more, more.
Talk about a deadly addiction, and one underpinned by debt (credit).
Aside from some infrastructure and taxes,
these chains drain wealth from wherever they
sit and give back menial jobs at minimum wage,
along with miserable traffic congestion.
No matter that most of the crap being sold
is coming from China et al, wreaking havoc
with the trade deficit--a situation bound
to cause misery. No matter that the resulting
waste stream is now a tsunami and growing.
Mentioned is Cheryl Baumgarten, a Conehead
that comes all the way from Rindge, NH to
get here and shopshopshop--oh boyeee! "We
don't have any shopping," she says of
the local "retail scene" (cool lingo).
The droolers are in on this story. Mr Myopia,
John Souza, Leominster's Planning Board Chairman,
postures in with the stat that what the big
boys look for is a population of 250,000,
known as a "primary market" to target.
We're not quite there yet, but "It's
getting there. We're not far off," says
Mr. M with anticipatory glee. Can't wait to
be turned into the messes around Nashua, NH,
beyond 495 and 128, and Rte 9 in Framingham.
Mr. Business, David McKeehan, antedeluvian
president of the local Chamber, who once told
me we can never overrun our water supply,
is also most pleased. All the greed-mongers
are pleased, developers and retailers alike,
especially Verizon Wireless, whose store in
Circuit City is booming. Yes, that brain-burning
microwave tech is hot stuff. No matter that
the electronics industry is highly polluting

But here's the kicker: the article notes several
times that people are coming to this area
because it's too congested to go to Nashua
or toward Boston. In other words, the same
madness that has driven things to critical
mass elsewhere is in the process of doing
it to us. Once we're done in ("we're
not far off"), you can bet the tide will
move further west--to the next "primary
Any wonder corporate-kissing BushCo opposes

part of all this is that all the box-thinkers
and players are mind-controlled enough to
believe this is good and a healthy economics,
whereas, it's the path to destruction.
With constant growth as god, it's inevitable,
isn't it, that the kind of congestion now
shunned by the Coneheads coming here will
spread itself so far and wide that even the
coyotes will have to shop at Wal-Mart.
And in all of this rose-colored titillation,
not a whisper about the impending energy crisis.
Not a syllable about the crumbling environment.
Not a word about the enormous debt bubble
about to bring the house down. This is how
plain stupid we are.

California has wasted $3 billion on it, but
we don't have to go that far says Sen Bruce

Sun, 10 Apr '05 S&E editorial:
Citizens, make your voice heard
A nice idea
Mayor Mazzarella, in a smooth political move
after being election-challenged in the paper,
scheduled a public meeting including all city
department heads and prominent employees to
let people express themselves on important
issues. An equitable and accomodating arrangement.
I couldn't make the meeting, but I take the
trouble to write extensively about things--in
letters to the paper and on my website--and
even go on local TV to make my voice heard.
I mention this editorlal because it's the
one where the paper misspells the Mayor's
name: "Mozzarella" Twice (got it
right once, though). I've thought up the variant
Mazzalini, but this one never hit me. Pretty
good: Mozzarella--Leominster's Big Cheese
(hope you can take a little rib, Dino :-)
An interesting note is that "Mozzarella"
has converted the people from sovereign citizens
into "customers," according to the
paper, which applauds the venue, saying it
"shows that the Leominster mayor understands
who he's working for." "We want
our customers, who are the taxpayers, to see
who's new," says Dino. In other words,
the Mayor et al have something they're trying
to sell us.
My concern is that the product is a peculiar
bent-over position the city takes to any outside

Wal-Mart, that want to "service"

to be had from this drug-fest obliging sugar/caffeine

starts his day. Tell me if you will, what
is the fundamental difference between this
and the bleary-eyed, adrenal-shocked addict
that can't function without his sugar- and
dairy-laden caffeine buzzfix every morning?
Don't even try to raise the heroin-is-so-much-worse
argument. Only health ignorance "supports"
that. Another monster example of hypocrisy.
I'm not saying take away the consenus drugs
(what wailing and crime would arise from that!),
but say let's not sicken and kill ourselves
with what the majority will allow, then stigmatize
the rest and fill up prisons with them.
To top it off, Starbucks has come under "green-fire"
and been widely boycotted for using
recombinant DNA dairy products (rGBH,
or Monsanto's genetically engineered bovine
growth hormone--cancer), known to be even
unhealthier than standard cow juice and for
selling products from slave markets such as
sugar, chocolate/cocoa-bean, and coffee plantations.
Starbucks is refusing to serve Fair Trade
coffee in its cafes on a weekly basis. Wages
and working conditions for small coffee producers
and plantation workers who supply the company
with its primary product are horrible.
It's just another planet-negative, people
negative drug operation, which Mayor Mozzarella
and other "officials" can't, or
refuse, to see, because they see this as progress.

granting mixed-use authority
A valid consideration, but doesn't go far
enough with zoning law change.
Should the City Council have the ultimate
say on mixed-use projects built on industrial
land.? We can debate this, but another, more
important consideration lies unmentioned:
zoning laws should allow for a decision to
"just say no" to further excessive
development and/or development that will host
unsavory businesses. Wal-Mart comes to mind.
Starbucks is another. Both companies have
a lot to answer for. But I would include almost
any big-box chain, because they all create
a net drain of wealth out of the community.
Equally important: The article mentions a
proposal to allow small businesses to re-use
older industrial buildings for a wide range
of residential, commercial or other non-industrial
functions. Some of that may be helpful, but
conceptually it's going in the same direction
as current development policy: wrong.
Older buildings would serve much better as
part of a concerted effort to create cottage
industries that employ local people and retain
local wealth. Such industries should focus
on essentials such as clothing, food, and
energy. Products grown and processed locally
(HEMP, for example) could be used as a hedge
against the coming devastation of economic
collapse and energy crisis.
When I say "local" it includes the
region, and the "region" can be
based, in part, upon the cost-impact of "importing"
needed or desired goods.

Seems like bad news, but is great
If there's one food crop that should be abandoned
by agriculture it's soybeans. In the first

modified. Such creations are called GMOs,

that is fraught with dangers to environmment

give big corporations such as Aventis and
Monsanto patented, monopolistic control of

Although soy contains some valuable components,
overall it is an ill-advised food--especially
the hydrolized, isolated, and processed products
derived from it, with few exceptions, one
being miso, a ferment (but it MUST be organic,
not GMO). These health-negative products and
ingredients are everywhere these days, including,
to its great detriment, the health food venue.
Apart from their inherent negative biochemistry,
soy products have zero fiber. Also, products
such as tofu putrefy easily in the gut. This
is worsened by the fact that many people eat
starchy products, such as bread or rice with
the protein soy--a recipe for digestive stress.
Also, soy is highly "mucoidforming."
Mucoid is the sticky, gooey stuff that started
out as the slippery, thin, watery mucus--the
body's defense against the unwanted--which
has become converted to 'glue' by absorbing

It also gums up the lower intestines and the
Soy products also are very estrogenic, like
many environmental toxins, meaning they disrupt
our hormone balance. Yes, a popularized notion
is that soy isolates are helpful for hormone
balance. That subject is beyond this discussion.
If all that seems bad enough, there's much
more. I've included an excellent letter from
Neurosurgeon Russel Blaylock, MD, to fill
you in on what's
even worse about soy.
1 Apr '05 Article: Intelligence agencies called
'dead wrong' on prewar Iraq intelligence
Smokescreen to deflect responsibility from
Let's be real, folks; this was a presidential
commission, much like the 9/11 one, designed
to look good, but say nothing—except
by what it doesn't say. The story calls the
report "unsparing." LOL! Unsparing
of the scapegoats. And if intelligence is
so bad, just think of the money we've wasted
on CIA, which gets something like $30 billion
annual, plus what it makes from any of its
50 various front companies, crooked deals
like looting the S&L banks with the Bush
boys and the Mafia, not to mention its decades-old
Truly the kind of bargain Americans are used
to from the government, which they allow to
sacrifice our young people, and commit murder,
genocide and planetary destruction globally.
Two Administration puppets on the panel, retired
judge Laurance Silberman and former Sen Charles
Robb, co-chairs, made it a point to say they
found "no evidence that senior administration
officials had sought to change prewar intelligence
in Iraq." Note how clever that is. They
didn't change the intelligence, but only set
an atmosphere were it would come out as desired--and
they certainly didn't do that IN Iraq.
Everybody seems to have forgotten the secret
committee set up by defence secretary Donald
Rumsfeld in 2001. Known as the Office of Special
Plans (OSP), it was set up to second-guess
CIA intelligence, and operated under the patronage
of hardline conservatives at the top of the
administration, the Pentagon and at the White
House, including Vice-President Dick Cheney.
It was headed by Paul Wolfowitz, Abrum Shulsky
and Douglas Feith, all Zionazis with connections
to the Sharon government and Zionist lobby
groups in Washington, like Jewish Institute
for National Security Affairs (Jinsa) and
AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs
Committee — is now the preeminent power
in Washington lobbying.
In 1997, the Jinsa declared: "Jinsa has
been working closely with Iraqi National Council
leader Dr Ahmad Chalabi to promote Saddam
Hussein's removal from office..." Chalabi
is the CIA-backed stooge and convicted embezzler
at present organising the next "democratic"
government in Baghdad. Paul Wolfowitz put
the famous "16 words" on the Niger
uranium scam into Bush's address.
Another connection: Distrusting Ahmad Chalabi,
the CIA helped foil plans to coronate the
neocon favorite as Iraq's puppet leader immediately
following the fall of Baghdad. CIA agents,
in consternation at neocon influence, appear
to have repeatedly leaked information about
warmongering disinformation to the press.
That's why some folks vented on the agency
by outing Joseph Wilson's CIA wife. This latest
report is the final kick in the pants--but
only for overt purposes. The inner covert
core of CIA continues to serve Wall Street
and the elite, especially with assassinations
and drug dealing.
The commission's most stinking recommendation
is the one to back John Negroponte, the Iran-Contra
criminal slime-bag who helped Reagan &
Co, kill 30,000 in Nicaragua, as ambassador
to Honduras. Instead of telling Congress what
was going on in Central America, the Reagan
administration employed the State Department
human rights reports, falsified by Negroponte,
as instruments to advance policy objectives.
Negroponte was rewarded
in 2004 for his bloodlust with an appointment
to the Baghdad embassy, where he could oversee
more abuse. Now he's been passed as head of
Iran-Contra history, including info on
Otto Reich and Elliot Abrams, with recent
cohorts Jesse Helms and Colin Powell.
Easy to see how this story is media-designed
to sell more of the same BS to America. Nice
summary of neocon future plans.
1 Apr '05 Article: Officials say judges set
bail too low
Judges have too much power.
Not often I find myself in agreement with
Fitchburg Mayor Mylott—or Ward 4 Councilor
Straight (gotta love that name), for that
matter. It would seem, though, that bail amounts
should be commensurate with the charges, perhaps
mandated by law in most cases. I'm sure it's
a complex issue (involving, for example, the
presumption of innocence--something Mylott
and Straight seem to despise). But even that's
not the real heart of this story.
The fact is, judges have too much power, and
many seem to have forgotten they're public
servants, not gods. Maybe they get swelled
heads when everyone has to rise when they
walk into court. What IS up with that, anyway?
This man serves me--he should rise when I
walk into court, not vice-versa. The whole
show is an exercise in elitism, a power game
reminiscent of royalty, not the people's venue.
Another issue is that jurors don't seem to
understand their power in court. A jury, which
IS the people--the ones the judge SERVES--actually
has authority over a judge, who is supposed
to keep the jury informed on matters of law
and control the proceedings--but NOT tell
the jury what to think or do otherwise. And
a jury, if it feels circumstances require
it, can even decide in opposition to the law
and what the judge says.
Furthermore, judges get away with all kinds
of illegal maneuvers because no one questions
or challenges them--much like doctors in hospitals.
You come up against a crooked judge, it's
a rare situation when another judge is going
to come down on him. They protect each other--like
Thu, 31 Mar '05 Article: Some Orchard
Street residents oppose new homeless shelter
These snob-ass, selfish, not-in-my-back-yard
people really take the cake.
Here's a woman, a black woman, even (who has
apparently never felt the sting of discrimination),
standing in her middle-class neighborhood
worrying that a homeless shelter might devalue
her precious property and/or bring in those
undesirable types that have no place to live,
and who might threaten the "safety of
These are unfortunates--homeless people, not

31 Mar '05 Syndicated editorial, Helen Thomas:
Recruiters trying to 'sell' parents
BigBro wants to get the arms and legs blown
off your kid too.
It would be one thing if wars were fought
around some issue of justice, freedom, and
so on. But these are just 'fronts' to get
people to go along with elite bloodlust and
tactics: ongoing war, genocide, power manipulations
and unimaginable profits to the "blow-it-up/fix-it-up"
cabal: General Dynamics, GE, Lockheed-Martin,
Bechtel, Halliburton, Dyncorp, and so on,
all of which is underpinned by the biggest
criminals of all, the international bankers,
mainly the House of Rothschild and its filthy
spawn the Rockefeller banking empire--controllers
of the CIA.
The "political capital" gained subsequent
to 9/11, but before the IraqAttack lies were
exposed, has begun to dissolve. So the bloodsuckers
are having to step up recruitment as more
people balk at this. Recruiters are playing
the heavy cards: "duty" and "what
it means to be a soldier."
A major recruting offensive is planned for
the heartland--a grassroots campaign for young
bodies, using luncheon speeches at Rotary
and Kiwanis clubs, both rife with members
brainwashed by America-the-Great psyop PR.
Army Secretary Francis Harvey says the "D"
word is farthest from his mind. But you can
rest assured we already have a draft based
on economic desperation, a situation manipulated
into being by the elite. And, if needed, the
hard draft won't be far behind.
Perhaps the most spin-revealing statement
in this piece was that of Lt. Col Joe Richard,
a DOD spokesperson, who said that the big
reason for the drop in recruiting is the improving
domestic job picture...
Thu, 31 Mar '05 Article: Americans'
nuclear fears remain; most say no one should
have them--not even US
Apart from the grammar error in the title--holy
Not EVEN the holy, righteous, land of the
free, which is the only government ever to
have used them? The government that continues
to develop new nuke weapons? The government
that feels justified in using "tactical
nukes" against "terrorist bunkers"?
How long will people continue to knuckle under
this imperial BS psyop?
What folks don't seem to understand about
nukes is that the elite has seen to the spread
of these things from the outset, and manipulate
people with the fear. Remember the bomb shelters
of the '50s? Listening for that siren?
I believe it was elite-servant Dick Cheney
and Donald Rumsfeld who greatly exaggerated
USSR's nuke capacity so we'd build more--big
money maker. Since WW II, US has spent $20
trillion on machines of death, and 5 trillion
of that on nukes alone.
In the largest military buildup since the
Vietnam War, the Bush administration has a
five-year plan to increase military spending
until the 2007 military budget becomes an
astounding $451 billion.
This colossal amount does not include the
enormous budget of the Central Intelligence
Agency allocated from both "official"
and undisclosed sources to finance its covert
operations. According to Jane's Defense Weekly,
the total FY 2003 intelligence budget was
"an estimated $38 billion" (13 percent
of Russia's GDP). This amount excludes the
multibillion dollar earnings from narcotics
accruing to CIA shell companies and front

Thu, 31 Mar '05 Feature: Annie's Mailbox--advice
column: Diabetic husband's eating worries
Response: Excellent demo
of health ignorance.
Woman married to "wonderful man"
who's diabetic but won't tow the dietary line,
and "guzzles soft drinks" (misnomer--nothing
soft about these poisons). Wife wants him
to drink diet sodas with artificial sweeteners.
Yikes! These substances, such as aspartame
(Nutra Sweet) and sucralose (Splenda) cause
all kinds of trouble, including diabetes.
The real sin--doctors go along with this crap.
Wed, 30 Mar '05 Article: Silt runs
into Lake Shirley
The gods have provided us with the epitome
of official doublespeak.
"Rain causes problem, not Target developers,"
says the subhead to the story of how silt
from a massive retail development project
has tainted the local lake--for the second
time. Our local environmental inspector, Matthew
Marro says it was Mother Nature, and not developers,
to blame for this runoff into a feeder brook
(the previous time, drainage basins "malfunctioned."
This time "There was just too much water,"
Marro declares, what with snow melting and
a big rainstorm--both surprising weather conditions
in New England.
Damn! Our pesky Mother has dared to interfere
in another human-stupidity project by raining
too hard on the pile of crap created by "even
the best engineering." This is a lesson
in "begging the question." That
question being whether this project should
even happen. If we weren't exploiting and
raping the land in the first place for greed
and "upscale shopping," would the
silt have overcome the silt fences put there
by silt creators?
And, had the argument been made against the
stupid project that it was too close to the
brook and lake in the first place, developer
Gregg Lisciotti (who "truly feels bad,"
as he wipes his tears with $100 dollar bills)
would have argued, and convinced the butt-kissing
Planning Board with pretty plan drawings that
proper precautions would be taken to prevent
runoff. See, the greedmongers couldn't even
wait til after the snow melted to start this
30 Mar '05 Article: Study: Teens commit fewer
Response: Interesting contrast
to the official lament about young drug abuse.
The ways in which kids "are doing better
than their parents did," according to
the Foundation for Child Decelopment and the
Child Well Being Index: They take fewer drugs,
commit fewer crimes, and have fewer babies.
Surprising. Current news gives nearly the
The type of "drugs" is not given
(i.e., street or 'the kind that Mother gives
you'). And the only things holding back even
more sterling statistics are "huge increases
in obesity, and an increase in young people
living in poverty and in single-parent homes.
There seems to be some propaganda on one side
of this fence.
