Jesus Camp – SCARY!

The Story of God – explores the history of humanity’s search for our creator.

Zeitgeist – as I mentioned yesterday – a must see.

I sneakily snapped this photo in a museum in Peru or Ecuador (no cameras allowed) – they are little Inca statues in erotic positions… You can actually buy packs of cards that each have a picture of a different statue in a different tantric-sex-like pose. I bought some as a gift, now wish I had them to show hehehe funny stuff. How fun is exploring different cultures! I wonder what India has in store for me next month…. okay, I gotta stop yabbering. Enjoy your weekend!

      noam chomsky is all about exposing the propaganda of mass media, and he is so ridiculously smart… why do you think he’s a double agent?

    “Since 9-11, he has steadfastly refused to discuss the evidence of government complicity and prior knowledge. Furthermore he claims that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Bilderberg Committee, and Trilateral Commission are “nothing organizations.” When critiquing poverty, he never mentions the Federal Reserve and their role in manipulating the national debt. “

      It is strange he hadn’t mentioned the Federal Reserve and national debt manipulation… hmmm…..

      It really did shock me to hear him say these things. It’s almost as if someone has threatened his family or something and forced him to make such a statement. It definitely is not what I expected of Noam Chomsky…

      They make some good points. But before going too radical… Chomsky seems to have worked within the limited sources he can to make the points manufacturing consent set out to make. He started the framework and we can fill in the gaps as we are doing. If he came right out and supported conspiracy theories without the facts to back him up then he would lose his job and all credibility…
      Still it gets to a point where it’s hard to know what to believe with all the framing and limited sources all information gets filtered through before reaching us…

      Chomsky speaks up for human rights and true democracy. He speaks against the quasi-democracy of USA that has a government sponsored terrorist group called the CIA that is not an inteligence service but a covert operations group.

      “Jews did 911” – now that’s a RIDICULOUS statement to make! And to discredit all Chomsky’s work as bogus, mumbo-jumbo and a fake science… I just don’t think the author of this article understands linguistics 😛
