Don’t Grope Me, Bro!

I support Ron Paul’s recent legislation to stop the TSA from taking draconian measures to treat all boarding passengers as criminals, including body scanners using health-damaging radiation and, if you opt-out of those body scans, a full-body groping.  This is absurd.  To show my support, I’ll be making T-shirts with the following logo I designed, itself a parody of the TSA logo.  This is a rough draft, but shows the long, groping arm of the government accosting the symbol of our nation, the bald eagle, and featuring an upside-down flag symbolizing our nation in peril!

Don't Grope Me, Bro!

 

On the backside:

Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,

against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,

and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause,

supported by Oath or affirmation,

and particularly describing the place to be searched,

and the persons or things to be seized.

.

Yes, the Fourth Amendment applies directly to the actions of government.  Yes, TSA is a government agency.  It doesn’t matter if the search is done on private property – such as in airports.  It is being done by a government agency without due process.

Produce Consumer’s Best Friend

When shopping for organic produce, what items are 'ok' to buy conventional?

When shopping for organic produce, what items are 'ok' to buy conventional?

.

For those of you who may not already know, one of my areas of interest include the problem of human body pollution, also called the human body burden (* see also the Human Toxome Project).  One of the ways that consumers can help minimize the number of harmful chemicals our bodies are exposed to is by choosing organic products.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG)  has done outstanding work over the past few years raising the awareness of this problem, which I believe is even more pressing than Global Warming.  For example, they have developed a database of consumer hygiene products, which consumers can use free of charge to discover just how toxic or Earth-friendly the product it.

They also have a Produce Shopper’s Guide, listing the dirty dozen of produce – that is, those types of produce that were tested and found to contain high levels of synthetic pesticides and other chemicals.  The list also provides a list of 15 of the “cleanest” produce varieties, in a downloadable and printable business card format for ease in shopping.   I call this the produce shopper’s best friend.   If you can’t afford to buy all organic, or not all varieties are available at your local store, use this guide to help shop for the varieties that are “cleaner” for you and your family.

Fluoride is a Bioaccumulative Poison; 1,800 Professionals Call for End of Water Fluoridation

Fluoride is a bioaccumulative poison that has been linked to lower IQ's, bone cancer, dental fluorosis and more.

Fluoride is a bioaccumulative poison that has been linked to lower IQ, dental decay, bone cancer and more.

For the past two years, I have known about the serious risks associated with the use of the common drug, fluoride. Fluoride is the only drug that is regulated into our public water supply with the intention of medicating the public (presumably against tooth decay, althought new science has revealed that fluoride is effective at preventing cavities only when administered topically; systemic application -as in water fluoridation – is ineffective for this purpose). This medicating without our consent may have other implications. On the back of every tube of fluoride toothpaste, you’ll find a small box with “drug” indications or warnings. The tube also warns: In case of accidental overdose, contact a poison control center immediately. The directions state that a normal dose is a “pea-size” amount. As the video below points out, that’s not how the toothpaste commercials market the stuff to us. I can recall Aquafresh® toothpaste commercials with the long wavy line of toothpaste and the nice curl at the very end, lapping over the top. With all the stripes and colors (and even glitter!) they make this stuff look and sometimes taste like candy. But beware, they say – it’s poison.

Use a pea-size amount.  Why do the commercials just pipe this stuff out with fancy waves and curly-q's?

Directions: Use a pea-size amount. Why do the commercials just pipe this stuff out with fancy waves and curly-q's?

Studies also show that only about 50% of the fluoride that is ingested (through drinking fluoridated water or swallowing toothpaste) is excreted by the body, which suggests that fluoride, like many toxic chemicals, is bioaccumulative. Scientists have found that fluoride accumulates in the brain, kidneys and bones, which can lead to lower IQ, behavioral/hormonal problems, tooth decay and bone cancer. Although much of Europe has banned the addition of fluoride to municipal water supplies, this drug is still being pumped into American tap water to about 1.5-2 ppm (ppm=one drop in a full, standard-size bathtub), while some water companies are known to bump that to about 3ppm or higher. Negative health effects are seen at rates equal or greater than .5 ppm.

New studies shed light on fluoride's effect on the developing brain.

I encourage you to visit www.fluoridealert.org to learn about the health effects of fluoride and fluoridated water. The information I discovered there was enough for me to switch to a non-fluoride toothpaste (I use Jason’s Powersmile “peppermint to the max” No Fluoride Toothpaste), refuse fluoride treatments at the dentist (remember they say not to eat or drink for 30 minutes afterwards because it is a poison), and buy filters for my Berkey gravity filter to remove the fluoride my local water company adds. I hate the fact that I have to bathe in this stuff, but I haven’t found a shower filter yet that removes fluoride and doesn’t cost over $125. The fluorideaction network boasts nearly 1,900 signatures from professionals calling for the end of water fluoridation. Do the research for yourself and help end water fluoridation by standing with us!

According to Wikipedia, the health effects and symptoms of fluoride poisoning are:

[symptoms are predominantly] Gastrointestinal [interesting to note, this is where the common flu originates]

* Abdominal pain
* Diarrhea
* Dysphagia
* Hypersalivation
* Mucosal injury
* Nausea
* Vomiting

Electrolyte abnormalities

* Hyperkalemia
* Hypocalcemia
* Hypoglycemia
* Hypomagnesemia

Neurologic effects

* Headache
* Hyperactive reflexes
* Muscle weakness
* Muscular spasm
* Paresthesia
* Seizures
* Tetanic contractions
* Tremor

Cardiovascular

* Cardiac arrest
* Shock
* Widening of QRS
* Various arrhythmias

Death

Here’s another tidbit, this time from the Natural Solutions Foundation at healthfreedomusa.org:

Fluoride’s use in water began under the Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin. In the Gulags or prison camps, political prisoners who were given water with fluoride in it to drink were complacent and placid. The effect was noted and later reproduced by the Nazis in the drinking water provided to people in the death and slave labor camps. Many health freedom advocates question not only the use of a deadly poison with well documented health dangers across the population spectrum, but the use of a dangerous and behavioral numbing chemical in the nation’s water supply.

I can find no supporting evidence for the information above, as much as I am inclined to believe it. It seems that the internet information regarding “fluoride and mind control” is largely based upon theory and pseudo-science. With that said, however, the following is a “confession” from a former communist stating that the possibility of using fluoride in this way was certainly discussed:

To whom it may concern: I, Oliver Kenneth Goff, was a member of the Communist Party and the Young Communist League from May 2, 1936 to October 9, 1939. During this period of time, I operated under the alias of John Keats and the number 18-B-2. My testimony before the Government is incorporated in Volume 9 of the Un-American Activities Report for the year 1939.

While a member of the Communist Party, I attended Communist underground training schools outside the City of New York in the Bues Hall and 113 East Wells Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The East Wells Street School operated under the name of the Eugene Debs School. Here, under the tutoring of Eugene Dennis, M. Sparks, Morris Chyilds, Jack Kling and others, we were schooled in the art of revolutionary overthrow of the established Government.

We discussed quite thoroughly the fluoridation of water supplies and how we were using it in Russia as a tranquilizer in the prison camps. The leaders of our school felt that if it could be induced into the American water supply, it would bring about a spirit of lethargy in the nation; where it would keep the general public docile during a steady encroachment of Communism. We also discussed the fact that keeping a store of deadly fluoride near the water reservoir would be advantageous during the time of the revolution, as it would give us opportunity to dump this poison into the water supply and either kill off the populace or threaten them with liquidation, so that they would surrender to obtain fresh water.

We discussed in these schools, the complete art of revolution: the seizure of the main utilities, such as light, power, gas and water, but it was felt by the leadership that if a program of fluoridating the water could be carried out in the nation, it would go a long way toward the advancement of the revolution. ~ Oliver Kenneth Goff, 1957

May be fatal if inhaled or swallowed.  Guess that's why they need the PPE.

"Warning: May be fatal if inhaled or swallowed." That must be the reason for the PPE.

Scientists Identify Brain’s “Hate Circuit”

The following article describes how British researchers have “isolated” the brain’s “circuit” for hatred.

Researchers have discovered that the putamen and insular structures of the brain are activated when subjects view photos of someone they hate. I expect to see more on this in the coming months as pharmaceutical companies and scientists seek to develop drugs to control what is viewed by some agencies, such as the Anti-Defamation League, as a growing sense of hatred in the world.

Just imagine, a world without hate.

To me, that’s a scary proposition because I believe hatred is a normal human emotion that serves a purpose. Hatred can be vastly misguided, controlled and instilled by parents, teachers, religion and government, but it is, nonetheless, a natural response to the world when something is not right. Because love and hate are so interconnected, the eradication of one would lead to the destruction of the other.

Ironically, researchers also say that these same structures in the brain are activated with thoughts of romantic love.

God help us if scientists and geneticists learn to control and manipulate these central human emotions in more sophisticated ways. We have enough problems learning to love and control hatred with our own mind as it is with the current level of manipulation we have to endure. The introduction of pharmaceuticals to “fix” this problem will only exacerbate our inability to regulate our emotions even further, leading to a greater number of false feelings of love and compounded feelings of hatred and violence. I’m sure the powers-that-be would love nothing more than to create human “robots” that blindly love their system of control and hate those who do not conform.

If love seeks to alert us when things are right and good and hate seeks to alert us when things are wrong and bad, would we be able to tell the difference between the two if that area of our brain was controlled by external forces?

Now, wouldn’t that be an invaluable tool to the globalists as they install their one-world government?

Hatred and love originate not from the brain, but from beliefs.

In Brave New World, members of society are conditioned to hold the beliefs and values of the World State. Everyone is encouraged to consume the drug, Soma, a strong hallucinogen which, at small doses, makes everyone blissfully oblivious, and at large doses, acts to impart a false religious experience.

Scientists Identify Brain’s ‘Hate Circuit’

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 29 (HealthDay News) — British researchers say they’ve identified a “hate circuit” in the brain.

This hate circuit shares part of the brain associated with aggression, but is distinct from areas related to emotions such as fear, threat, and danger, said researchers Professor Semir Zeki and John Romaya, of University College London’s laboratory of neurobiology.

The study was published online Oct. 29 in the journal PLoS One.

“Hate is often considered to be an evil passion that should, in a better world, be tamed, controlled, and eradicated,” Zeki said in a journal news release. “Yet to the biologist, hate is a passion that is of equal interest to love. Like love, it is often seemingly irrational and can lead individuals to heroic and evil deeds. How can two opposite sentiments lead to the same behavior?”

In this study, 17 female and male volunteers underwent brain scans while they looked at photos of a person they hated, along with photos of a “neutral” person. Looking at images of hated people triggered activity in an area that includes structures in the cortex and in the sub-cortex as well as components that generate aggressive behavior and translate it into action.

The hate circuit also includes a part of the frontal cortex that’s believed to play a major role in predicting the actions of others, likely an important feature when a person is faced with someone they hate, the researchers said.

The sub-cortical activity of the hate circuit involves two structures called the putamen and insula. The putamen plays a role in the perception of contempt and disgust, and may be part of the motor system that’s mobilized to take action, the scientists said.

“Significantly, the putamen and insula are also both activated by romantic love. This is not surprising. The putamen could also be involved in the preparation of aggressive acts in a romantic context, as in situations when a rival presents a danger. Previous studies have suggested that the insula may be involved in responses to distressing stimuli, and the viewing of both a loved one and a hated face may contribute such a distressing signal,” Zeki said.

He added that activity in parts of the hate circuit matches the strength of the person’s declared intensity of hate, “thus allowing the subjective state of hate to be objectively quantified. This finding may have legal implications in criminal cases, for example.
