A group of Anonymous has a Chat

Found this! Anonymous hit Eugene this past Feb. it seems, they were stuck, couldn't get a ride to Portland. I don't see much difference here between "holy rollers" and these guys. . .

Killer Trees in the UK!

However, it isn't funny. . .

Have they gone all out stark raving looney tunes mad hatter insane over there? I'm convinced that England is a very large laboratory, where all the fascist, NWO, corporate-globalist Illuminati Dr. Evil plans can be tested out before they try it elsewhere. Like here. Surveillance cameras, arresting people at the drop of a hat -- literally, it seems, or at least sausage bits -- RFID cards ... it gets worse.

Big Brother is here and he's stomping across the planet.

England wants to get rid of trees; mow them down. That's a bit dramatic, but what they want to do is have a lock stop tree inspection for all "garden trees" and if your tree isn't up to standards, it's done for, as New safety regulations for trees could lead to expensive inspections tells us.

Expensive inspections are to be paid for by owners. One reason why this is so bleak, while seeming funny, like "killer trees on the loose!" it isn't. Those without the money to pay for tree inspections will be treeless. The have nots end up living in gloomy, nature less projects, while those who can, live with tidy trees on their bright streets. On the surface it's a safety issue, they tell us, underneath, is more of the arbitrary rules sprung upon citizens, just for its own sake.

But most Americans don't care, they don't see it, they mock and accuse people who rant about these things as being "paranoid" or an alarmist or a crank. As long as we have our TVs and Dollar Stores and McDonald's, as long as we're not homeless and maybe have a bit of health insurance, we think we're living the good life and all is well. After all, no one's hassling the likes of us. So what's there to worry about?

Radical Anonymous vs. Scientology

What scares me about this is the zealotry the so-called "radical" Anonymous movement has for its vendetta against Scientology. And listen, I am NO fan of Scientology, so don't go there with me kiddo.

Given their favorite icon; the mask from V, you'd think the Anonymous ones would go after what fucking matters. An example: George Bush and fellow cohorts. Calls for impeachment. Voting fraud. (And don't go there with me either; about how there's been voting fraud forever, and all elections are rigged in some way, etc. Does that make it right? Fuck no.)

As the line from V For Vendetta goes (which is a great movie)
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson, who said:
When the people fear the government you have tyranny...when the government fears the people you have liberty.

Ironic they're running around with those masks on, attacking a religion rather than politics. Oh yes, I know that religion and politics are just about interchangable in many ways. . .point is, they're missing the point.

Scary times, my friends. In more esoteric ways than one might think . . .

Jurassic Park comes true: How scientists are bringing dinosaurs back to life with the help of the humble chicken

Scientists with an astounding sense of entitlement (I mean, they're scientists and all!) are blithely going about bringing back the dinosaurs.
just like in the hit Steven Spielberg movie, these men and women are intent on cracking the genetic code of the dinosaurs and opening the possibility of bringing them back to life.

Yeah, okay: did they see those movies?

Professor Jack Horner, a paleontologist at Montana State University, says glibly:
'The science is there. I don’t think there are any barriers, other than the philosophical.’

Yes, that pesky philosophical stuff. Such a drag.

Then there’s this comment about paleontologist Hans Larsson of Canada’s McGill University:
He wanted to see if he could make a chicken grow a dinosaur’s tail, turning the clock back millions of years.

Manipulating the genetic make-up, he was able to extend the tail by a further three vertebrae.

It gets worse, like the part about Horner’s fantasy of walking up on stage with a “little dino chicken” walking behind him.

The understatement of the century is this comment: Pausing for a second, he adds:
Whether it is a good idea or not is another question...

It is very interesting; it’s fascinating that they can do these things, and the process of discovery is very exciting. But as they say, just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should.

Jeff Rense, Henry Makow and Feminism

"Makow blew the whistle on feminism...The cumulative impact of these essays is enormous." ~ Jeff Rense

From Cruel Hoax:

Feminism is elite social engineering designed to destroy gender identity, making women masculine and men feminine. Increasingly heterosexuals are being conditioned to behave like homosexuals who generally don't marry and have children.

The Rockefellers and Rothschilds created feminism to weaken the family and poison male-female relations (divide and conquer.) Their twin objectives are depopulation and totalitarian world government. Why? These bankers create money out of nothing and think they are God.

Lesley's Newest Blog:Unrelated Reality

Lesley, Blog Queen (er, besides me, I think we both have the same number of blogs, which is around 400 each) has a new blog called Unrelated Reality. I like it! I also like the look of the platform she's using: Square Space. I tried to sign up over there and get one going but I found it hard to use. Maybe it was just the mood I was in. Anyway, check out her blog, as well as all her others.

Burton's Sweeney Todd - Epiphany

I just saw this on DVD, I wish I had seen it in the theater. It was still great; I loved this movie! This is the song Epiphany which is very powerful; no clip here, just the song.

I'm a musical fan, and have always liked Sweeney Todd, but this version really captures the spirit of the musical like no other.
