A follow-up comment on the e-mail I sent out this AM…it’s likely that the authorities are going to cite people for things they previously ignored, like using turn signals, and remember that anything hanging from your mirror is an obstruction of view.

Vaccinated Children Two and a Half Times More Likely to Have Neurological Disorders
“From 1983 to 2007, autism rates have climbed from 1 in 10,000 children to 1 in 150 children, a growth rate of 6,000% (boys are significantly more affected by neurological disorders, accounting for approximately 80% of all cases).”
World public opinion is the most important element of a global Democracy. Public opinion is also extremely easy to manipulate where the educational system and media are manipulated by corporate and elitists. Check out how we might stand in a global democracy…out-voted as an independent nation, and subject to the will of the rest of the world. Ignorant fools believe that the will of the (manipulated) majority supercedes the rights of the individual. What is good for the Collectivist State is good for all of its citizens. All hail Oz….

Judges behaving badly
Senator Mark Dayton on 9/11 commission – lies
Secret trials for terrorists, says US judge
There you can see a string of politician rhetoric which is OBVIOUSLY designed to SCARE you. Politicians are constantly talking about terrorism, and how they neeeeeeed more power to combat it. But, even accepting on blind faith the government’s version of what happened on 9/11 (which I don’t), is fear of terrorism rational?
Statistically, no. I hate to mess up their mind control by citing facts, but the following site gives some basic statistics about causes of death in the U.S.
Assuming the stats in 2003 weren’t drastically different from the preceding years, here are a few facts that you should keep in mind:
1) In the last decade (1997 to 2007), you had about a 1/100,000 chance of being killed by a terrorist attack. (That’s the population of the country divided by the number of people who died on 9/11/01).
2) In the last decade, you were about 170 times as likely to be killed in a car accident as you were to be killed by a terrorist act. Let’s do a little graphic to illustrate the ratio:
Killed by terrorists (1997-2007):
Killed in car crashes (1997-2007):
(So are you 170 times more scared of driving than you are of terrorists? I am.)
3) In the last decade, you were as likely to drown in your bathtub as you were to be killed by a terrorist act. (Where is the clamor for “bathtub control”?)
4) In the last decade, you were twice as likely to die from cold weather as you were to be killed by a terrorist act.
5) Last, but not least, in the last decade you were more likely to be SHOT AND KILLED BY AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT than you were to be killed by a terrorist act. Don’t believe me? Look at the bottom of that page, under the Orwellian heading “legal intervention.” (347 events per year adds up to well over 3,000 in a decade.)
(Yes, I know that using the word “you” is a bit of an over- generalization, since people in different categories obviously have different risks, but you get the point.)
People are constantly telling me how we neeeeeeed “government” to protect us (a topic I’ll discuss more soon). When the government, with the help of the mainstream media, is constantly telling you to be SCARED of things–except for itself, of course, which is what you SHOULD fear–and then painting itself as the solution to all those problems, it’s no wonder so many people think we need it. All our lives we’ve all been bombarded by the propaganda of tyrants, telling us that the world would be CHAOS if they aren’t given the power to protect us. Even a lot of pro-freedom people still have a ways to go to overcome that indoctrination.
