Nestled in the heart of the Horn of Africa a woman walks across the Savannah, with her child grasping one hand and a precious water container nearly filled to the rim in the other. She scans the landscape for signs of danger taking the form of Ethiopian troops on patrol. She knows that if she encounters even a small patrol, the chances of being raped, beaten and even killed are high. Despite this realization, her children must eat and drink and so she walks, albeit cautiously, driven by the undeniable love a mother has for her child. She has suffered much; her village has been reduced to ashes. The members of her family killed by the Ethiopians are too numerous to recall. During the harshest famines, she has gone hungry to that her children may eat. Her land is rich by all measures, yet she is poor as her mother was before her.

We wake up in the morning to hear and watch the newest tragedy that has swept the world¹s media attention. One morning it is the tragic crash of an airplane, the next some contested elections that turn violent as people rebel. Soon, the media lens is directed to the death of a star, but after a few days, the media bites ease and as a few specialized commentators continue discussing previous events, cameras and microphones have gone somewhere else. Amidst this media frenzy, the future of the world is being orchestrated as attentive spectators watch in silence and (sometimes) disbelief.

There are over 200 billion stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way, but Hubble has estimated that there are over a billion galaxies in the universe which makes one point increasingly clear ~ WE are not only not alone but are united through a common innate urge to unite:
Astronomers estimate that the Milky Way contains about 100 billion stars. Recently, however, this number was upped by about a billion after the discovery that very old, nearly invisible stars had escaped earlier detections.
Our Sun, which is 4.6 billion years old, is located 26,000 light-years away from the galactic center on one of the spiral arms. It is a location considered more suitable than others for harboring life, in part because the central region is too chaotic, and in part because the concentration of metals there is too heavy, and it’s too light in the galaxy’s outer fringes.
For the first time, I'm actually quite afraid at having Barack Obama occupying the office of President of the United States. I hate to say it, but McCain was right - Obama doesn't have the experience needed for the job under the present circumstances.
At some not too distant point, this man is going to have to stand alone, break away from the chains of all his controllers and sycophants, agonize as he has never done before, and make a decision which will have incalculable consequences.
It really won't matter whether the decision will be about direct intervention in Iran or calling North Korea's bluff or calling out the Army and FEMA mercenaries to squash riots in Los Angeles, Gary, Des Moines, or wherever. If he really wants his job, he'll have to make the decision himself and order that it be carried out.
Watching the President's performance so far, I have no faith that he is ready for that ...

In one of his verbose obfuscations of reality, President Obama declared on June 23, 2009;
“The United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not interfering with Iran’s affairs. Some in Iran — some in the Iranian government, in particular, are trying to avoid that debate by accusing the United States and others in the West of instigating protests over the election. These accusations are patently false.”
While some progress has certainly been made, we as a society still have a long way to go in this newest civil rights movement.
First, the good news:

Many Americans are up in arms about a possible threat to "privacy" if the Obama plan to digitize medical records, making them available on secured sites and accessible by physicians and hospitals, should be implemented. Looking at the situation more deeply would lead one to believe that the reverse may be true and we could lose something more important than our privacy if it is not.
First, one must admit that when your life is at stake, the last concern you have is whether your body or its internal workings are exposed to any or all of the people who are fighting to save you. Secondly, if there are any known facts about your medical history or ideopathic propensities, you certainly want the people who hold your life in their hands to know it. Have you ever reacted adversely to any medication? Are you, perhaps, allergic to any mixture or compound that may contain the offending substance? May your life be in danger if someone in an emergency situation and following "customary medical practices" should introduce a sizeable dosage of that medication into your system?

The damage to America is so bad at this point; even if Americans revolted today, it would take decades to undo the damage that’s been wreaked upon the people. Citizens and elected officials are waking up daily, but it’s quickly becoming too late. The warnings have been ignored for too long. The Constitution has been subverted so badly, power has been transferred to Bankers, Corporations and Globalists in plain sight. Our lives are wrecked. America will never be the same again. Few seem to care.
Until April 5, 2013 the 1984 American science fiction-horror film, directed by John Carpenter could be streamed or downloaded from a number of websites. They Live (Full movie) was in the playlist below created by Buddy Huggins.
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
