Then at once the trees return to say they are still there. They stand still and firm with roots reaching into the wisdom of the earth’s millions, even billions of years. Their servant spirit shares with my spirit, as the canopy of older trees form a short tunnel towards the end of the route. Their shade from the sun comes as welcomed relief at this point.

Darkening clouds just continue to gather as the liberties of the past give way to a fear driven society willing to acquiesce to the grossly overreaching state. The continued erosion of privacy can lead to serious political abuses. Continue reading
A Whole Lot of Talking Going On – Fat cells are sending messages to the brain and to each other — they all play some kind of role. Millions of messages are going back and forth, and we don’t know what most of them mean!” In the old days, people used to think fat tissue was a passive organ,” said Rexford S. Ahima, an endocrinologist at the University of Pennsylvania. Continue reading
Increased earthquake frequency and intensity may forewarn of disaster to come. Gulf of Mexico oil production wells and pipelines not constructed to earthquake standards. An underwater Haiti of crumbling and shaken facilities are a concentrated threat. One petroleum geologist with 40 years in Gulf of Mexico refutes notion of seismically quiet tectonic region.

Deformed fish in Canada lake likely product of oilsand operations. Contamination showing up in fish tumors and other deformities. Canada government slow, very slow to act to even determine the causal relations of oil industry activity with oilsand operations. Earth warns and men have no ears to hear nor eyes to see.

It easy to despair over a culture that seems so torn from it roots of a good society. American history has long been a reflection of the good and evil found within man himself. It is a mixture of love and hate, light and darkness as is life. It involves whether we have ears to hear or eyes to see. It is what emerges from the heart whether from the conscious or the unconscious. Consider the article by Mark Morford, not just the excerpt and ask: What do I see? What do I appreciate? Or propose your own questions to yourself? I wrote a published a blog on point two days ago consider it.
“What to make of it? After all, the world has always been speckled with rabid clowns, an endless parade of spittle-flecked sociopaths that make us shudder and sigh, many with “Reverend” before their names or “Show” just after it. American culture is rife with worldviews so narrow and poorly educated, you can be quickly convinced we are but an inch from permanent insanity. Or maybe not. I prefer to think of these fine denizens of dumb as the darker, skankier parts of our individual consciousness, the red flags of the soul. Should we not be grateful they exist? That they are here to remind us to be ever vigilant and wary? Hell yes we should.” (Mark Morford - via Burn a Bible, save a kitten)
The Bible warns us of the psychic danger from evil imaginations of the heart. Jesus repeats the warning first seen in the Old Testament. The heart capable of such evil that it brings destruction. Carl Jung made the modern connection in his study of the soul. Like Jesus before him he identified great psychic danger of man’s psyche. Continue reading
Here we are people. The addiction to oil and the lack of resolve to move the world toward newer energy sources. We can’t stop drilling because it will be a job killer. We can’t stop drilling because it will kill the restoration projects that were caused by the drilling. We can’t stop the drilling in the Gulf of Mexico because it will kill BP’s ability to pay for the damage caused by their drilling.
So, do we kill the Earth with our drilling? What then?
We have become a pitiful people here in the USA. We are so much the slave to the BIG MULTI-NATIONAL COPORATIONS and their KINGS AND KINGDOMS that we can’t really even know true freedom and liberty anymore. Look at all the people fighting each other and over what. The media indoctrinates and the powers that be break the small man without their knowledge of the manipulation.
There is peril on the deep water horizon. Absolute peril if this kind of hubris is not placed in check. They keep building the monsters of the deep. Yes there are monsters of the deep, fire-breathing dragons that lurk around for more hydro carbons in the far reaches of the deep. Here is one called the Perdido. It is a $3
Billion dollar monster built to probe the ocean like never before in history. You see investments like that and you know that there is no intention of stopping the madness that threatens the human species. It is almost as if those really in charge are seeking ways to destroy.
“Our ability to manage risks hasn’t caught up with our ability to explore and produce in deep water,” said Edward C. Chow, a former industry executive who is now a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “The question now is, how are we going to protect against a blowout as well as all of the other associated risks offshore?”
Dangers do not directly increase with greater depth, according to experts like Mr. Chow. But they do rise as exploration and production rigs become more complex and more remote.
Addicts can’t stop filling themselves with drugs. They can’t stop drilling. They can’t stop drilling.
An offshore oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, west of the site of the April blast that caused the massive oil spill.A commercial helicopter company reported the blast around 9:30 a.m. CDT Thursday, Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel said. Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats were en route to the site, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.
Early reports say no hydro carbon spill from this event.
Now the talk of drones flying the skies of the USA is over. The news today of drones scouting the USA border with Mexico from the clouds comes with strong reservations for some. It will be just a matter of time before all sorts of so-called security needs and “our safety” will demand more drones. This should be ominous to us as more and more the state is bringing militaristic law and technology to the domestic affairs of the United States. The result has been the erosion of civil liberties. Here is an article worth reviewing and take a look at some of the reader comments.
WASHINGTON – The US will today send another Predator drone on patrol flights along its border with Mexico, allowing authorities for the first time to monitor the entire frontier with the unmanned aircraft.
