Do you believe in aliens?

Many people all over the planet, have made claims to strange lights in the sky. Some have even managed to video-tape or photograph these phenomenon The critics cite gaseous explosions, falling objects from outer space, weapon testing, aircraft testing, and more. Those that witness the flashing lights, and mysterious streaks across the sky, have a different theory. They believe that aliens from outer space are visiting us.

I’m talking about UFO’s
(Excellent page on numerous sightings)
Unidentified flying object (commonly abbreviated as UFO or U.F.O.) is the popular term for any aerial phenomenon whose cause cannot be easily or immediately identified by the observer. The United States Air Force, which coined the term in 1952, initially defined UFOs as those objects that remain unidentified after scrutiny by expert investigators, though the term UFO is often used more generally to describe any sighting unidentifiable to the reporting ob…

Lack of Natural Selection

There are many people who think that the human race is spiraling quickly down the proverbial evolution ladder, due to current ideologies. I am one of those philosophers that maintains that theory.

Now, before you think I'm speaking of racism, you could not be further from the truth. I endeavor to maintain a racist free outlook for myself.

I believe; our entire race, is changing radically, due to choices made by our leaders!

To segregate, or to allow free choice? It is logical, yet presumptuous for our nation's leaders, to force ideology on their populace. Every individual that has ever served in public office, has done exactly that with, "the nation's best interest's in mind", but how many times is that really true?

"An ideology is a set of aims and ideas that directs one's goals, expectations, and actions."

"Implicitly every political tendency entails an ideology whether or not it i…

A War of Words

There is a war at hand.

Not the armed conflict in the middle east, but rather, a war of words. Let me explain:

With the advancement of technology in computers, and the emerging internet, a new way of communication was discovered. Since it's inception in the late '60s, our way of life has been radically altered!

Today, many things that we take for granted, are now based on orbital satellites.
We communicate at the speed of light. Our whole lives can be summed up, in a handful of electronic devices.

50 years ago, TV viewers, were raving about the "new colour television", and while many people had access to the telephone, many rural families had to settle for a "party line". I remember, using a telephone at a friend's house, and warned about the "etiquette" required for a party phone line.

"In twentieth century telephone systems, a party line (also multiparty line or Shared Service Line) is…

A tall tale

As for my point on the subject of "pot's limiting abilities", allow me to equate this for you, in the use of an analogy:

A maintenance man, working in a huge downtown sky-rise; alerted by the silent alarm on the roof's emergency door, runs to check on the problem.

He finds the door propped open, with a brick, allowing snow and blowing wind to enter through the one inch crack. Peering out the door, he notices a man, in a business suit, smoking a joint.

Well, the maintenance man bursts through the door, and confronts the dope-smoking stranger.

"What do you think you are doing up here, smoking weed?"

The man, startled by the sudden intrusion, guiltily looks around. He resists the temptation to try and hide the evidence, smoking away, in his hand.

"Yea, I guess you got me," he sheepishly admits.

Well.......the maintenance enters into a charade of guilt, and fact about the dangers of smoking illegal drugs. He then proceeds to explain that pot is a gateway dru…

I'm Wearing my "Troll-proof" Underwear

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion"

"Do not feed the trolls"

For the average person, this phrase conjures images of squat, ugly humanoids from a variety of folklore legend. One famous Norwegian story, "Three Billy Goats Gruff" is about three brothers (goats) who attempt to cross a bridge over a river, to get the rich grass on the other side. Under the bridge is a troll that would like to eat the goats. In his greed, he allows an easy target to go by him, only to be gored to death by the final goat. Most folklore stories depict trolls, as inferior, greedy, primitive and mostly evil. (There are some stories of …

All good kids go to Heaven

The recent discovery of a training facility for children, by our military, has many people asking why. The thought of children in war zones, can make a hardened soldier blanch in disgust. These training facilities, are an attempt to convince children, some as young as 8 years old, that by assisting in their war, they guarantee a place for themselves in "heaven".

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 38, (1989) proclaimed: "State parties shall take all feasible measures to ensure that persons who have not attained the age of 15 years do not take a direct part in hostilities." However, minors who are over the age of 15 but still remain under the age of 18 are still voluntarily able to take part in combat as soldiers.

According to Article 77.2 of the Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and relating to the Prot…

Our food


How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?

I read this question, and for me, felt very confident about my food sources. I have an advantage, since, I used to work in the food industry. I say, used to; since I no longer slaughter animals for a living.

In the early spring of 2000, I lost my job. A new virus, originally from Britain, had infected Canadian cattle. Meat prices dropped due to consumer panic.

Mad Cow aka BSE

A British inquiry into BSE concluded that the epidemic was caused by cattle, who are normally herbivores, Cattle are normally herbivores. In nature, cattle eat grass. In modern industrial cattle-farming, various commercial feeds are used, which may contain ingredients including antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, fertilizers, and protein supplements. The use of meat and bone meal, produced from the ground and cooked left-overs of the slaughtering process as well as from the cadavers of sick and injured anim…

2009 in Review

Well, there’s another decade. 2009 is officially over, and the end of single digits for another 990 years.

This decade will be remembered, for it’s fashion, politics, medical breakthroughs, and technological advancements. It will also be known as the decade that we discovered a new type of warfare: civilian terrorism.

Thousands of civilians were killed in the attack on the Trade Centers in NY city. The event sent ripples of fear across the planet, and tore a hole through the shroud of innocence in North America.

Now our society has found comfort through extreme upgrades to our security systems. It is no longer necessary for our enemies to blow up buildings, and cause airplanes to fall out of the sky, as the fear of being attacked, has crippled our economy. In this manner, our enemies are winning, without using weaponry.

The majority of the planet is locked in a sustained war. The reasoning behind the conflict is energy. If you take oil out of the equation, we are sending our frien…
