Hmm. I think we're being tested. What they want to know right now is, how far will people go to fight this? We have one last chance. This is it. And if we are not willing to march en masse, like the people in New Orleans, if they are not willing to march en masse, if we're not willing to, for instance, declare a day of, uh, a general strike! This will stop it. It will have the power.

One of the things about this trans-national cabal is that, it has been repeatedly told to me that the US holds the key. The US can stop this. They're in charge. So, it's up to the American people. Either we shut this down by just a peaceful, non-violent demonstration, or we will not have a second chance and there will be bloodshed the likes of which this world has never seen.

"PTSD actually damps down your ability to have a consciousness of freedom. It’s a political weapon. All these wars that send back traumatized veterans are a way to keep the population quiescent and obedient. In the interest of your liberty brain and my liberty brain, rape is a freedom issue. Fighting rape and sexual assault and the sexual abuse of children is a way to advance liberty."

225,000 Haiti children work as slaves
The Pan American Development Foundation’s report also said some of those children — mostly young girls — suffer sexual, psychological and physical abuse while toiling in extreme hardship.

There’s a smell of treason in the air, Imagine if J. Edgar Hoover or any other FBI director would have testified against a sitting president? It would have been a mind-boggling event.

The pun, when credited with the autonomous capacity to intervene unbidden in speech, can be the very devil. It draws together two sets of meanings and, in the moment before it is laughed or shrugged off, introduces the threat of ambiguity hence the risk of being, in this case, misunderstood. It is the last ditch before the abyss of the Freudian slip wherein, and this is true, a vicar introducing 50s blonde bombshell film star Diana Dors, who was born Diana Fluck, to an audience at a fete held in her home town of Swindon, referred to her as Diana Clunt.

(from Adidam, a chapter on the late Adi Da by Scott Lowe. Maybe RI would benefit from something comparable to the steps listed below before membership is bestowed?!)

In keeping with the routinized, exoterically demanding daily practices of Adidam,
it has become incredibly difficult to enjoy the guru’s satsang. The current
probationary process takes at least 9–12 months to complete and requires a significant
academic, temporal, financial, and devotional investment. The following ten
steps are the minimal requirements that must be met before new students are eligible
to receive the avatar’s spiritual transmission:

1. Take the introductory “First Word” course.
2. Take the Pre-student course, “The Only Truth That Sets The Heart Free” ($350.00 cost).
3. Sign and return copy of “Sacred Agreement.”
4. Sign and return notarized copy of “Membership Agreement.”
5. Sign and return notarized copy of “Legal Release form.”
6. Sign and return copy of “Health & Life Circumstance Questionnaire.”
7. Sign and return copy of “Form to calculate tithe.”
8. Receive a physical examination, including blood work.
9. Take the MMPI Psychological evaluation test.
10. Take the student beginner vow.
The real cigarettes are elsewhere.
