6 Jun '05 Article: Starbucks opens doors to
first local customers
Drug dealer sets up shop for local addicts.
These are society's cute folks--Starbucks's
customers: the sugar/dairy/white-flour/chemical/caffeine-addicted
sheeple. The paper even shamelessly refers
to the customers as "caffeine-addicted
residents." And all this poisoning in
a relaxing atmosphere where the addicts can
drive their blood sugar, cholesterol, blood
pressure, and cortisol levels off the charts.
Oh, it's all just harmless fun, after all.
Here's an idea: Let's be consistent (for a
change). Let's make all our condoned or consensus
drugs illegal like the stigmatized street
drugs: Take away nicotine, caffeine, alcohol,
and even sugar and white flour. You think
the legal addicts who now look down on the
illegal druggies won't be out in the alleys
looking for dealers?
And to top it off, the beneficent chain pulls
PR points from an ignorant public by donating
day-old fungus- and toxin-laced crapfood pastries
to the elderly centers, Battered Women's Resources,
Inc, and Boys & Girls Club. Says the store's
manager, "We're looking for other places
too, because we want to be part of this community."
Well, how homespun can you get? Can't wait
to get those old folks plugged into the nursing
home wall, continue to batter the women's
health, and poison the kids. Yup, all part
of a day's work for a national crapfood chain.
And one that has been widely boycotted and
leafleted to boot for refusing to sell fair

Jay Ambrose: 'Non' to constitution means 'oui'
More Ambrose-ial idiocy.
Jay suggests that France will ultimately be
worse off for rejecting the yoke of globalization
and the regimentation of everything but bowel
habits by the 300-page EU constitution. 300
pages! Cripes, maybe bowel habits are regulated
I won't get into all the ins and outs, but
the interesting thing about Jayster's ramble
is the idea (used to intimidate us) that population
decline, which is desperately what the planet
needs, will spell disaster for France's future
social security plans--not enough input by
young tax slaves. This is true of all "developed"
countries. It's also one of those 'true, but
only if we keep doing things the wrong way'
statements. Meaning, if we let the masters
continue to steal everything.
There it is, folks. The system is so arranged
that we need to overpopulate the planet to
have "enough workers to create the wealth
necessary to keep social security going."
He's right about workers creating wealth,
but forgets to mention they're not allowed
to keep it, but must hand it over to the controllers.
It's much like the logic that paying a living
minimum wage causes inflation. You gotta hand
it to these elite corporatist pigs, man--they've
really got it all figured. And no one asks
why inflated CEO and other management pays
have no affect on inflation.
30 May '05 Syndicated editorial: Bill Press:
Stem cell opponents just don't get it
Bill just doesn't get it.
Bill Press is usually pretty good, but he's
paddling the wrong way with one oar on this
one. To be fair, though, he's got a lot of
company on that creek, reflecting health ignorance
like most pundits and pols.
He discusses the medical realities and religious
dogma surrounding the issue of whether we
should have embryonic stem cell research--and
it's not even the issue that should be discussed,
which is, should we have stem cell research
The answer is a qualified NO. The qualification
1) Most of the diseases said to be targeted
by this research are already
being cured despite official criminal
denial by conventional medicine (conmedicine
2) The research should be strictly curtailed
to areas such as birth defects, which are
not diseases in the usual sense. But even
then, most birth defects could eventually
be avoided if the principles of wellness were
in place in the mainstream instead of medical
dogma, and if we just stop poisoning ourselves.
The push for this expensive and polluting
technology, which has the potential to go
in some Frankensteinian directions, is, like
most conmedicine, driven by dollar signs.
Most medical disease research of all kinds
is essentially looking for cures to our auto-toxifying
way of life

Ann Coulter: Left-wing PBS bias? Ask Bill
The queen of sleaze rhetoric bull-rides outta
The politicomedia establishment has to be
nervous to call in the political sleaze queen,
Ann Coulter to defend itself against the ripping
media and government criticisms by Bill Moyers.
He certainly hit a nerve at the recent National
Conference for Media Reform in St Louis.
Coulter, a notorious media personality lapdogging
for the ruling class is extremely clever with
her words in deflecting the truth. For example,
she says Moyers said that flag pins are "a
little metallic icon of patriotism" comparable
to Mao's Little Red Book on every Communist
Party official's desk in China. Taking the
remark out of it's context, she counters by
saying that the metallic icons Mao used to
keep the masses in line were the sharp instruments
the Commies used literally to stab people
in the back.
True enough, but it doesn't change the point
Moyers was making, that patriotism is being
used to blind people to the criminal behavior
of the government, that the flag pin represents
a form of brainwash (questioning the government
is unpatriotic), and that the media is standing
by facilitating it.
The fairest criticism of Moyers--that he never
really defines the nature
and behavior of the elite--is even more
true of Coulter and the entire mass-media
press, regardless of the direction of so-called
Coulter complains about Moyers's condemnations
of the behavior of Condi Rice and the government
about Iraq, implying it's because they're
Republicans; but she fails to admit that he
would have done the same if it were Democrats.
And that's a major point:
After explaining that there was pressure from
CPB chair Ken Tomlinson and other White House
allies for NOW to 'trim it's sails,' Moyers
explained, "One reason I'm in hot water
is because my colleagues and I at NOW didn't
play by the conventional rules of Beltway
journalism. Those rules divide the world into
Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives,
and allow journalists to pretend they have
done their job if, instead of reporting the
truth behind the news, they merely give each
side an opportunity to spin the news."
Political party is nearly irrelevant, because
at the end of the day, it comes down to lying,
cheating, stealing and killing, which have
continued apace for the last century, across
all party lines.
The dividing tactic is exactly the game Coulter
plays. Another tactic is misstating the other's
argument. For example, she uses the high price
of gas to refute the suggestion that we "invaded
Iraq for oil." Well, two things: no oil
company is going to bitch about high prices.
Big Oil loves them in the captive market,
and the people who manipulate the war profit
immensely from them. Secondly, the purpose
was not to steal the oil, but to control its
market destination. You can't get this through
the skulls of the ruling class servants like
Coulter--who actually are soulless enough
to think it a noble motive. American selfishness
Coulter accuses Moyers of being 'on the take'
at PBS for taking a cut of video sales, and
for having 'family members' on the payroll.
"Let's just hope he never took a free
golfing trip to Scotland!" says Annie,
alluding to Tom DeLay's illegal tripping.
And that's the point she leaves out. Moyers's
actions were not illegal.
For pointing out the failures of media and
government, Moyers is adorned with the usual
name-calling that has made the Sleaze Queen
famous: Conspiracy nut, crazy megalomaniac,
insufferable jerk--all the measured ad hominems
of journalistic protocol.
Well, it goes on and on--line after line of
clever BS, which only proves that Moyers hit
the nails on the heads and made the establishment
nervous enough to call in Sleazy for an unprecedented
column rebuttal that reached even to local

Sat, 28 May '05 Article: CDC raising
red flag over obesity
Typical medical flapdoodle
It's the fat that's dagerous to health, they
say, but don't mention the inner ecological
condition leading to the fatness. Same for
the increasing teen Type II diabetes (they
can't call it 'adult onset' any more). So,
we've got to watch our BMI, or body mass index
(proportion of height to weight--pretty stupid,
where as total body fat measurements might
be better, or at least added).
Here's the funny bone in this article--the
best weight control programs are hospital-based,
which offer "expert advice" from
dieticians, exercise physiologists and psychologists!
And there are local programs forming to help
area children learn healthy eating habits
"bit by bit." Well, not if they
use the government food pyramid and eat the
school lunch program.
Hey, doc, try thinking outside the box. There
might be more to it than just controlling
dietary choices and exercising. We might want
to consider brain toxicity as an underlyng
imbalance that throws the whole system off.
We might also want to consider that the goal
is wellness, not weight control. Fit and skinny
people get sick too!

Dale McFeatters: Washington's ballet in the
Ballet--cute word for insane nonsense.
Dale's talking about air traffic and security
around the capital. There was a recent scare
which sent our courageous politicians running

Nancy Pelosi to lose her shoes. It turned
about to be 'two goobers in a toy airplane.'
But what about a serious threat, asks Dale,
wherein they actually shoot down an aircraft?
What's it going to land on? Well, obviously,
anything or anyone but our courageous politicians

Fri, 27 May '05 Article: Health officials
urge students to get the new meningitis shot.
Lot's of BS in this one.
Meningococcal meningitis is said to have struck
a young girl "out of the blue" and
almost killed her. The resulting advice: "Children
who are 11 to 12, students entering high school,
and college freshmen headed for dorm life
should be vaccinated." Now there's an
epidemiological spread for you.
Here's a disease that affects only about 3000
people a year, and kills 20 percent of adolescents.
The biggest age group is 5-24, which amounts
to 32.5% of 3000. Yet, the kids must all run
out and get Dr. Frankenstein's poison needle.
Has this vaccine been long-term tested to
be safe and effective? Do you need the answer
to that question?
Also, there's no such thing as "out of
the blue" disease. People weaken themselves
over a period of time until the straw breaks
the camel's back. The best way to prevent
infectious disease is to mantain a balanced
inner ecology--which discourages germs.
Then they say you need only one shot of this
magic potion if you get one in the age group
noted. One shot, how great. The next line
is, this "is expected" to protect
you for "up to" 10 years. Two questions:
How the hell do you know when it runs out,
and why is it that natural immunity lasts
a lifetime, but phony immunity runs out?

Thu, 26 May '05 Article: Crestor side
effects spark concern
Yet another FDA-approved menace to society.
This story's about the danger of a particularly
bad cholesterol drug (all of which are poisonous
nonsense). The funny part is the statement
by Fitchburg internist Dr Sven Bruun: "Happily,
it's not a unique drug, (meaning) you have
to take the risk because you have nothing
else to give them." WOW! Is that a great
example of how screwed up a medically brainwashed
mind can be.
Note he says "you" have to take
the risk--meaning the doctor! The doctor is
taking the risk! Hidden in that 'logic' is
the medical concept of the Therapeutic Index,
which is a craps game played by medicine with
your health and life: The deadliness of the
drug used can 'justifiably' increase with
the deemed deadliness of the disease. Thus,
if they say you have a fatal illness, they
can kill you with a drug and get away with
it. This ws done with AZT/AIDS, for example.
Because "you have nothing else to give
them." How true, the doctors have to
give drugs or nothing at all. And they have
precious little to give even in that regard,
since drugs cure nothing.
Not even to mention that such propaganda perptuates
the myth that cholesterol causes heart disease,
a medical boondoggle.

Amnesty has now gone further, saying that
if BushCo does not face up to this, US administration

by an international court based on the torture
convention signed at Geneva:
those officials, [Amnesty US chapter head]
Schulz named Bush, Defence Secretary Donald

Douglas Feith, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales,
former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director
George Tenet, and senior officers at U.S.

and Abu Ghraib, Iraq.
"'If the U.S. government continues to
shirk its responsibility, Amnesty International
calls on foreign governments to uphold their

all senior U.S. officials involved in the

that violations of the torture convention,

police who chase the evil dealers around.
Overall, the drug scene is an elite creation,
and we have evidence of targeting 'undesirable'
or 'expedable' segments of the population,
such as blacks and Hispanics. However, the
grand design, as always with the elite, is
to control with fear-based mind control. This
story plays right into that scenario.
But the bottom line is, if you make matters
of personal choice illegal, you invite criminals
in to fill the demand. Thus, if the money's
good enough, there will be no hesitation by
the criminals to use weapons.

a clear symptom of underlying physical health
issues and psychosocial failures, will bring
only street war. But, hey, maybe that's what

had helped Saddam with arms development. US
exports were knowingly assisting Iraq's nuke
development, and two of his top scientists
from the Al Qaqaa facility were invited to
Portland, Oregon for a September 1989 US Energy
Dept symposium on nuclear detonations.
Ambrose's dishonesty prevents us from knowing
exactly what Blix said at the recent Stanford
U conference on international affairs, but
he accuses Blix of "yawning" about
the threat of future nuke blasts from terrorists.
Jay mentions that Pakistan's nuke scientist
A.Q. Khan smuggled nuke technology into some
pretty scary hands, but fails to mention that
Pakistan is our close ally, and that this
was done virtually under US auspices or at
least was never intervened upon by the US.
It also implies that the US is not a 'scary
hand,' when it threatens to use nukes, and
is the only nation ever to have done so (despite
the fact that Japan had virtually surrendered
and that they rushed to drop the bombs before
that became public). And, we've dispersed
the equivalent atomicity of 400,000 Nagasaki
bombs in four de facto 'nuke' wars with DU
munitions from Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq
It should be mentioned, as example of Ambrose's
technique, that he refers to criticism of
BushCo as "anti-Bush hysteria."
If anything's hysterical, it's Ambie's pro-Bushiosity
in the face of our 300 billion-dollar genocide
Ambrose-ia proceeds to debunk global warming
with various rhetorical tricks and by quoting
industry-servant "scientists" who
say there is no threatening rate of warming,
or any immediate threat by "so-called
greenhouse gases." So-called! Jay should
take a trip to Alaska and try to sell his
bullshit to the indigenous natives, who are
literally watching the ice pack melt, and
who are seeing species of plants and animals
for which they have no words in their language.
And he should take a look at this
article about fish migration.
Above all, however, with what's at stake,
even though there is "more than a tiny
fraction of climatologists" whose consensus
Jay prefers to believe over the rest of the
world (Jay!--is it a conspiracy, you think?),
because "science is not about consensus,"
it would behoove us to err, if we're going
to, on the side of caution, as opposed to
barreling arrogantly ahead as Ambrose suggests,
and burn every drop of oil we can get our
gluttonous hands on.
To finish up with his hypocrisy and politically
motivated dissembling, the Jayster, admitting
that there is "long-term" global
warming, says that one answer is nuke power--thus
completing his circle of stupidity. Nuke power
tech, as we know from US bitching hypocritically
about Iran, is only a skip away from weapons
The waste problem, which proponents of nuke
insanity conveniently skip over, or whitewash
by saying we must solve it, so it will be
solved (is is insoluble) threatens us daily.
There are 80,000 tons of waste now sitting
around awaiting a terrorist attack and awaiting
dangerous transport to Yucca Mountain in Nevada,
where we will hand it off to our kids and
say, "Here's a load of really deadly
stuff to watch closely and keep safe for the
next 4.5 billion years. Don't screw up, now!"
Because we just love creating security problems
This is preferable, apparently, to curbing
our selfish and voracious consumption of power
until sustainable ways can be made practical.
Sacrifice nothing, in other words, except
the processes of Nature and human reproduction.
Instead, build more malls, big-box retail
stores and anything else we can think of to
suck more power off the grid. And hey, gotta
have those obscene displays of Christmas lights,
too, and all those lights that shine on the
White House (which you wouldn't mind if they
lit up the criminality within, to which Ambrose
Jay, bite me.

Helen Thomas: Growing danger of nuclear arms
Revealing yet more US hypocrisy and nuke insanity
The question, "Should we have nuclear
weapons and power?" is almost the equivalent
of, "Why don't we just commit suicide
and get it over with?"
Helen points out BushCo's hypocrisy about
nukes by not sending high-end diplomats to
the UN NPT conference, and by rebuffing the
proposal by IAEC Director Mohammed ElBaradei
for a moratorium on all uranium enrichment
and plutonium processing until a set of standards
is agreed upon.
Not only did the nuke lapdog diplomat Rademaker
rebuff that logical and fair proposal, but
said he approved an outright ban on uranium
enrichment--except in the US and other nations
that already have enrichment capability. Almost
nothing more need be said.
Except that the non-proliferation treaty is
entirely a scam, because, while it has put
the effort on stopping new systems development
it has not enforced the other half of the
equation: disarmament of extant nuke arsenals.
Thus, the powers that be continue to threaten
the planet, under the assumption that those
powers are the world's Good Guys: US, Russia,
GB, France, and China (and, of course, the
'little guys,' India, Pakistan, and Zionaziville,
Israel has been, as is its wont, particularly
sleazy in its development of nukes, simply
refusing to join the NPT. If it weren't a
bastion of criminal elite power, it would
not have gotten away with such development.
But, of course, poor little tiny Israel must
defend itself from its evil Arab neighbors,
to whom it has been ever so pleasant over
As noted in an earlier response, in the week
of 9 May '05, the Rumster, our reptilian defense
secretary, renewed a Pentagon request for
funding for studies of new nuke weapons, especially
bunker-busters and battlefield warheads.
Iranian foreign minister Kamal Kharrazi notes
that it's "unacceptable" that some
nations want to limit nukes "to an exclusive
club." He's more than correct. But then
he says he wants legally binding assurances
from nuke states to non-nuke states that they
will not be attacked. Yikes! Talk about naive--a
lot of good that will do when the insane ones
vaporize him and stand in defiance of the
world. After all, they've already mounted
four 'nuke' wars with DU munitions, poisoning
large areas for the next 4.5 billion years.
Of course, all of this yammering omits the
central point: the global elite cabal controls
the nuke industry and keeps the threat alive
to maintain chaos. Did I mention insanity?
Thu, 19 May '05 Article: US wants
to consolidate bomb materials to reduce risk
of terrorist attack
nutcakes of nukes are thinking sharp.
To guard against terrorists "storming
a US weapons lab and setting of a crude nuclear
device..." yada, yada, yada. They're
going to move all this stuff from where it
is to a few highly secure sites, including
concrete bunkers in Idaho. Seemingly, they
neglect to consider how unsecure it'll be
traipsing all over the countryside.
Here's the good part: "The US no longer
manufactures or tests nuke weapons, but scientists
still use small amounts for research, including
studying how existing warheads age and how
weapons might be built by terrorists or rogue
nations." What crap.
the week of 9 May '05, Donny Rumsfeld renewed
a Pentagon request for funding for studies
of new nuke weapons, especially bunker-busters
and battlefield warheads.
Gee, good thing no "rogue nation"
other than America is pushing for tactical-nuke
bunker-busting bombs, eh? And why do we need
to discover ways the naughty folks can make
weapons? It's already all out there. What
they'll do is dream up new ways, and that
will eventually get out there.
Time to DITCH this useless, insane technology
that promises only to poison the entire world--more
than it already has, I mean.
Thu, 19 May '05 Article: Residents,
businesses may assist with Lake Shirley pollution
pollution--what a sane way to live.
They hope to install drain system to reduce
sediment. Hey, no doubt sediment screws up
the lake, but where does the drain send it,
and does it do any good there? It's "road
runoff." Solution: build a new car dealership,
a new mall and restaraunts, more condos and
a gaggle of soccer fields in the area. Where,
oh where does the sediment go.
Thu, 19 May '05 Article: Top US military
official says al-Qaida leaders in Syria are
planning more suicide bombings
Oh, it can't be that the Iraqi people are
resisting an evil occupation and takeover.
Such BS in the news is also preparation for
building hate against Syria, another Mid-East
domino that must fall before the Israeli Zionazi
elite operatives and the Elite Axis of Evil
(US/GB/Israel) on the path to global domination.
Give the AP credit, though, this piece does
report a statement by a Syrian official to
the effect that this is another PR campaign
against his country. See Sat,
14 May '05 for similar propaganda and
an inside report on the US attack on the border
town of Qaim.
Thu, 19 May '05 Article: Parent charged
with beating coach with a bat
This characterizes American society on so
Can you say, too obsessed with sports? Can
you say, brain short-circuit from any number
of toxins and Dr Frankenstein's drugs? Can
you say, is there any wonder we don't object
to militarily kicking ass without investigation
as long as our criminal leaders and military
psychopaths can sufficiently demonize the
target (see example above on Syria)?
Wed 18 May '05 Article: Gov. backs
expansion of No Child Left Behind
Yes, the Mittster is a pig in the BushCo mold.
Mass Gov Mitt Romney puts down widespread
complaints among teachers and educators that
NCLB is underfunded, saying that testing costs
virtually nothing. The point is, though, the
fed oversteps its authority imposing mandates
on states and communities, then fails to fund
them. No matter what the amount, it amounts
to bullying that states shouldn't put up with.
But the RepubGovMittster doesn't mind.
The best part of this piece, though is the
Mittster's reasoning for a top-notch educational
system: National security depends on it. He
goes on, "If the US fails to produce
a more innovatice and science-based workforce,
we'll become a tier-two economy, and a tier-two
economy can't have a tier-one military."
Well, first of all, not to worry, we'll just
outsource the workforce as we're doing now.
Secondly, how "tiered" can you get
spending $440 billion or so on military? It's
already beyond obscene. There isn't a tier
near it anywhere in the next 20 nations combined.
And now it wants to weaponize space with high
explosives circling around up there just wiating
to be brought down anywhere in the world in
45 minutes. Can you wait for the first computer

on the front page, but the best parts of his
speech are left out of this report. For a
nice summary of American dissembling and hypocrisy,

Helen Thomas: Leaders' credibility no longer
less now, she means: seeing the effects of
mind control on society.
Helen laments that her illusion about UK and
US citizen concern for credibility and accountability
of their leaders as been shattered. She bases
this on the now indisputable falsehoods of
the motives for devastating Iraq, which folks
just seem to ingore, going about their daily
biz--particularly the recent re-election of
Tony Blair. And there has been no public outcry

war did not become an issue because the Dems
didn't challenge it and says that Kerry said
he basically would have done the same thing.
This is not what I got from Kerry's words,
which were that he voted for the war, as a
last resort, but base upon Bush deceptions.
That's a bit different. Helen says Kerry blew
it big-time--but she's not aware of the elite
M-O. It was 'blown' on purpose.
Helen doesn't understand that BushCo is not
directing the show, but serves the international
elite cabal underpinned by the Rothschild/Rockefeller
central banking system whose agenda is global

and slaughtering innocent people.
15 May '05 Several artices: Gay marriage or
of non sequiturs and gum flapping, sprinkled
Some opponents of gay marriage keep going
back to the Bible, completely ignoring that
not everyone is Judeo/Christian, or even religious,
and that America is about not imposing one's
religious beliefs on others, despite what
the majority might be doing.
Some opponents of gay marriage say their objection
is not religious, but sociocultural, ignoring
the fact that homosexuality is as old as Man,
and has not yet destroyed civilization. To
the contrary, that is in the greatest danger
of being destroyed by patriarchal heteros,
who are apparently in the mainstream.
Some opponents of gay marriage proffer the
preposterous illogic that hetero marriage
is the only logical barrier to incest and
multiple-partner marriage. First of all, most
incest takes place in hetero situations between
parents and offspring, or between siblings--something
unlikely to occur in gay unions. There is
an unspoken implication that gays are automatically
perverts, whereas what these narrow-minds
would define as perversion is clearly a hetero
One opponent of gay marriage says it isn't
a religious matter, but that it should be
ruled unconstitutional, because that's not
the world we live in. Was there ever a better
example of the state of denial? Of COURSE
it is the world we live in, we've only to
acknowledge and respect people's rights. This
argument smacks of the logic the vaccine pushers
use--everyone's got to be shot up to protect
the shot up from the un-shot up.
Multiple-partner union is not blocked by hetero
marriage, since we already have forms of it.
For the most part, insecurity and pathetic
jealousy will take care of that one anyway.
However, it might not be the worst idea, since
households can now barely make it on two incomes.
Several adults and fewer children might make
an ideal arrangement going into the future.
This threatens only the paranoid patriarchists.
Some opponents seem to think that allowing
gay marriage threatens human survival, presumably
that it will cause converts of otherwise heteros,
and everyone will succumb and civilization
will fade away. On the other hand, what if
we do really have too many--way too many--people
on the planet--especially given the stupid
way we abuse it? And, what if homosexuality
is not only not a 'perversion,' but Nature's
safety valve as a hedge against worse human
Some proponents of gay marriage say it must
be called marriage. What, really, is in a
name? There is an emotional, or social-status
aspect to having equal access to the nomenclature,
but as long as all the same rights are involved,
who cares what you call it. I favor gay marriage
as an unalienable right, but would focus more
on what rights are attached to what ever the
union is officially called.
Other proponents seem to have the humanist,
live and let live, do unto others, respectful
posture that all opposers would wish for if
they were in the shoes of those they wish
But, the last thing that should happen is
for this to come to a public vote, because
that can easily lead to oppression of a minority
by the majority--a decidedly un-republic-an
development. The rights of the individual
and minorities are unassailable in a true
republic. Majority rule is mob rule is democracy.
