I live on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range in Oregon, and I am so tired of being chemically sprayed by high altitude jet aircraft. We have been hit every day for at least 90% of the days of past 6 weeks. The spray lines are either being placed right over Chiloquin like today, or they come in as an afternoon drift from the heavy morning spraying over the Pacific. If you remember your physics, fallout is always heavier at the higher elevations (4100 – 4200 feet in Chiloquin) as opposed to the west side of the Cascades (1382 feet in elevation in Medford, Oregon)
This means that the chemical fallout over the east side of the Cascades is much heavier in spray particulates which I think is making me sick. I have a headache which does not go away and a metal taste in my mouth. If you are skeptical about this, my east side brothers and sisters; go out right now and taste our snow. For a fleeting moment, you will find the cold snow taste delightful. The aftertaste however is a different story. It is incredibly metallic. It is actually frightening how bad the snow tastes. My dogs won’t eat it. I swear to Buddha, it is like licking a cookie sheet. Continue reading “The Earth is a living place of sacred teachings.

Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- New York’s rights infringing ban on assault weapons is constitutional, but it cannot limit a gun magazine to seven bullets, a federal court judge ruled today.
The ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny in Buffalo found that New York’s gun-control law, called the SAFE Act, that restricts assault weapons doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights. But the judge tossed a provision that limits a magazine that can hold 10 rounds to just seven bullets. Continue reading “Federal Court Strikes Down Magazine Limit but Upholds NY Assault Weapons Ban”

WASHINGTON – The family of Capitol Hill shooting victim Miriam Carey has apparently lost patience with the glacial pace of the official investigation into the death of the unarmed mother, as their attorney made two major announcements.
Eric Sanders is calling on Congress to investigate the shooting death of the 34-year-old dental hygienist by uniformed Secret Service agents and U.S. Capitol Police officers on Oct. 3.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The deaths this year of three major Texas Republican donors, including a billionaire who died over the weekend, could signal a generational change for party kingmakers in the nation’s largest GOP stronghold.
Harold Simmons, whose business interests ranged from energy to nuclear waste dumps, helped transform Texas from a Democrat-controlled state in the 1970s to a Republican stronghold by the turn of the century. Simmons’ death Saturday came after Republicans lost home builder Bob Perry in April and businessman Leo Linbeck Jr. in June. For decades, all three helped bankroll political campaigns both in Texas and nationwide. Continue reading “Texas Republicans Lose Three Major Donors In 2013”

Starting with what we know as a fact, which isn’t much with how dishonest TEPCO and Japan have been to date and the amount of lies the have already been caught at and the fact that Japan passed a secrecy law which would imprison anyone from reporting any news they deem “inappropriate,” including ongoing events at the devastated Fukushima nuclear plant.
FACT: Steam is once again rising at the unit #3 reactor, registered on at least three to four days between December 19 and the 27th. Continue reading “Did They Abandon Fukushima?”
TheBlaze’s national security editor Buck Sexton opened Monday’s Glenn Beck Program with a simple question: Will 2014 be the year America says enough is enough? As Buck explained, the United States has been teetering on the edge of big government progressivism for quite some time now, and soon the weight of a bloated government and overregulation will prove to be too much for this country to bear. With the midterm elections just around the corner, 2014 provides the opportunity to take a step back and reevaluate the current state of this country. Will Americans finally be ready say enough is enough? Continue reading “Will 2014 be the year America says enough is enough?”
