I was watching the conspiracy movie Zeitgeist the other day about the plans of the Canadian, US, and Mexican business elite wanting to create one currency for North America. It is scary that a lot of the negotiations are done outside of the public eye and are not voted on by the people. Here is what Rick Mercer says about the idea put forth by TD Bank…
On the topic of the movie Zeitgeist. You can watch the entire thing on their website. The beginning of the movie does have some disturbing images, but the rest of the movie seems to shy away from shocking us in this way. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. But, it is a thought provoking! I especially liked the break down of the myth of Jesus Christ. I could just imagine religious viewers squirming in their seats…I had heard quite a bit of the different conspiracies before, with the 9/11 cover up being the most prominant. I thought overall, it was an 8 out of 10. There you are! My first movie review at http://www.end-of-silence.org…
With a recent find of an early 4 legged animal fossil, scientists are saying, “told ya so“…in response to the creationists who say there are no transitional species in the fossil record. Here is an article over at the BBC website.

Some evolutionary biologists are suggesting that amendments need to be made to Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Well, isn’t this what science is all about? Modern DNA analysis just adds to the story, IMO.

Remember not too long ago, environmentalists warned that “one day” the Arctic poles would completely melt? Well, it looks like this year is the year! I really feel for those arctic species.

On a much more recent note, America is collectively losing it’s mind. Apparently it is OK to torture terrorist suspects, and if the Bush administration just calls it “harsh interrogation”, everything is fine…WTF? Very sad.

I believe that the American political machine goes out and looks for trouble. They create their enemies as a means to spread the global economy. Some analysts are insisting that the USA shouldn’t talk to their enemies. I don’t see how they could go into another country, where they are not winning the war, and just stay there, and not negotiate a peace treaty. I think McCain doesn’t get it(he calls people from North Korea “Gooks”), but hopefully Obama gets it. Here is a short article on the topic of talking to the enemy…If there are any of course!

This just in… Apparently if you smoke more than 5 joints a day for 20 years you lose some brain functions?? Really? What a shock.
As well, brain scans show that parts of the brain shrinks from such large and frequent exposure. I think the shrinkage was from all the hydrogenated potato chips that they snacked on. Not good for you 😉

Here is a bit of a rant over at YouTube about how the US Govt is releasing fake Bin Laden tapes to help quell the questions that keep arising about the truth around 9/11. Though it seems a little sensationalized, it is good entertainment IMO. Enjoy!
To add to the argument that George Bush was instrumental in the 9/11 attacks, an article just came out that some senior Govt official(I assume an ex-govt. official…), is saying that there were rehearsals of the disaster. Now, I am not saying that I buy these conspiracy theories, but Wow, it makes for a wicked movie!!!Maybe Michael Moore will take it on for his next “documentary”…

And if we are unfortunate George Bush’s successor will be Senator McCain…He looks to be a bright one on the important issues of the day!
I find it shocking and amazing that the USA has only about 5% of the earth’s population, but almost 25% of the earth’s prisoners. Can you believe that? What are all these people doing wrong?
[From Inmate Count in U.S. Dwarfs Other Nations’ – New York Times]
You would think that after a recent gallop poll on the opinion of US citizens that the majority of prisoners would be atheists and scientologists. They hate them!!!

Religion makes perfect sense, as the following comic from Rudis Muiznieks over at cectic.com indicates…
It is really amazing after reading this article of the differences between the USA and Cuba, how much our media feeds us lies and is really a tool for “The Man”. Or so conspiracy theories tell me…I tend to believe the opposite to what Fox, CNN, etc…tell me, but that’s just me. This story just like everything else should be taken with a grain of salt, it seems a little biased, but it is refreshing to see.

I got a laugh out of this article about the kinds of toys etc…that are marketed to children. Fake lower back tattoos for little girls. What a great idea!
The flying spaghetti monster has inspired many an artist in the USA. In the The Cumberland County Courthouse in Tennessee, there has been a sighting of His Noodleyness. Isn’t it nice to see some free speech going on down south.;)

I was going over some of my MarsEdit content, and I think I missed this important statistic over at dvorak.org/blog…1% of Americans are in prison!!WTF!!!Absolutely shocking.
