Thursday brings in the Tide

Welcome, to the Friday before Friday. As you all should be aware, 'The enemy of our enemy is our friend'. Our new strategy is to arm the Sunnis who 'promise' to fight Al-Qaeda. Mind you, we have been fighting the Sunnis! Its a plot so ridiculous, its unfathomable. In other notable news, Corn resources, almost as popular as oil, are being depleted as ethanol and other biodeisel products are made from the ground up corn powder. This means we need more corn resources to produce enough maiz for our food products (high frictose corn syrup) alongside our fuel consumption. Be sure to keep a heads up when cereal, soda, and other corn products inflate. Ah yes, good times are a comin- high gas prices alongside high food prices. And did I mention beer? Yeah, those prices are going to spike as well.

Everything You Know About the World Is Wrong (metaphysically speaking)

US commitment to the alternative fuel ethanol to combat climate change, apart from being controversial, could cause a more immediate problem by rising the price of corn, and inevitably meats, and grains, and could lead to a domestic food shortage.

A "strategy of tension" is a way to control and manipulate public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents provocateurs, as well as false flag terrorist actions (including bombings). The term was coined in Italy in the 1970s during which terror attacks and assassinations committed by neofascist terrorists were committed. The aim of these actions... was to promote the formation on an authoritarian government.

Wednesday's Bewilderment

Hello to all, what a wonderful start to the day. The internal domestic affairs are ecstatic today, lots of wonderfully good news! A very positive start to the day- I'll try to include some positive atricles. Truthfully though, its hard to find positive news, it takes many hours of scouring through the depressing and fear inducing papers to actually grasp a positive outlook. So now for some real life news to bring the glow of the day back down to it's peachy gloom.

Have you ever pondered why Germany -- a civilized, predominantly Christian, technologically advanced nation -- forgot the difference between right and wrong, and allowed the ghastly shame of its Nazi era? If you're an American living through the Guantanamo era, you're seeing the early steps of exactly the same process -- the same willful refusal to understand what's happening.

Released documents show the NSA had a secret room inside AT&T offices which allowed them direct access to the email and internet usage of AT&T customers

Some call it "phantom vibration syndrome." Others prefer "vibranxiety" — the feeling when you answer your vibrating cellphone, only to find it never vibrated at all.

monday is a new day

Well well, here we are again- It's monday and we've all got those damn blues. Good thing work was slow and I was able to conjure up some juicy interesting tid bits of news:

The Monkeysphere.
How many people can we keep track of until they begin to turn into faceless 'characters'? Our monkeysphere is the bubble in which people we know are kept in, and as our technology advances, we are required to 'know' and communicate with more and more people. Eventually each ones character and personality fade into their position, the garbage man, the fast food worker, the president. By having these faceless qualities it is easier to not care about them, because they lack personal traits. But suppose that garbage man has prostate cancer, and has 3 daughters and athletes foot. He is no longer just the garbage man, he has personal qualities. This fantastic atricle brings this theory into an indepth look on how we can dehumanize so easily.

Our Oceans Are turning into Plastic!!
Every molecule of plastic that we have ever made in the 144 years of plastic's existance is still around today. The halflife of plastics are around 500 years. We are literally poisoning ourselves with the plastics that make our lives easier! Even with recycling- only 3-5% is actually recycled into reusable plastic. There are 5 seperate areas in our oceans, twice the size of Texas, that are basically plastic landfills. This plastic isn't going anywhere, and we need to do soemthing about this!

Here are some more very interesting articles that I haven't gotten a chance to brief as of yet. Please do not disregard, every link is vital in understanding our society as a whole.
