Lessons From Libya

Early hours, Friday, May 11, 2012

Time for some Edutainment, brought to you by yours truly.

Listen to Dear Leader Barack Obama (formerly/still? Barry Soetoro) accept the Nobel Peace Prize, which he's done proud.  I'm not sure exactly how many countries the United States is currently dropping bombs on (Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, etc) or in some way waging covert wars (Iran, Uganda, Syria, USA, etc), but I think it's safe to say it's more than any other nation.

Also featured in this musical piece is US Secretary of Defense, Hillary Clinton, proudly declaring:
We came, we saw, he died!"
in response to the killing of Libya's long time leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Other news clips from RT help paint a picture of the both Machiavellian & Orwellian manors with which Dear Leaders conduct themselves.

If none of that entices you, maybe the fact that I've sampled Bob Marley, among other artists will interest you.

We Mustn't Allow Syria The Same Fate

As for some quick lessons on what we can learn from the fiasco perpetrated on Libya, before our troops are sent to Syria, lets see what the Canadian government, being led by the Conservative Party, has for us in the news?

$350 Million to help foment a civil war & a slow genocide of a sovereign nation that was the rising jewel of Africa, ranking highest in Africa on the Human Development Index in 2010.  Over a year ago I joined the chorus of individuals pointing out that NATO was supporting Al-Qaeda fighters who were leading the "uprising".  That's not how I want my tax dollars being spent, that's for sure,

Now I never even knew there was a celebration in Canada for "Victory in Libya", but apparently there was a celebration in Ottawa that apparently "attracted only a couple of dozen Libyan-Canadians who waved flags as cannons sounded a 21-gun salute."  That makes this next headline that much more outrageous:
That is more than double what the orignal approved budget was.  So what was possibly served by firing some cannons and flying a jet overhead?  Someone must have thought this was a good way to demonstrate their bravado or machismo.

It's interesting to note:
The Privy Council Office instructed the Canadian Forces on Oct. 2 to begin preparations for the victory celebration, well before the end of the Libyan conflict, according to the records. The office outlined exactly what it wanted and the military complied with a Parliament Hill celebration that included a flypast of aircraft and a parade of Canadian Forces personnel.
I point this out, all the time wondering how many Canadians are aware of the Privy Council Office and what part in plays in the Governance of Canada.  Good fortunes willing, time will permit me to delve into this topic at a later date.

With all the lies coming out of our Dear Leader's Lips, it's nice to be joined in my plot on this earth by this tulip.  All that escapes from it's presence is a glowing aura and a sweet smell of better days ahead.

Alberta's Chief Medical Officer Wants to Make Vaccines More Available to Teens

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Paula Simons published an article in the Edmonton Journal today and it was dated May 2, 2012, so I believe that to be the date.

In this article, Ms. Simons interviews the Chief Medical Officer of Alberta, Andre Corriveau, who believes that there needs to be found "better ways to make the (HPV) vaccine available" to "young people". Apparently, Edmonton's 66% in-school inoculation rate for girls is in some way unsatisfactory to him.

Well today I learned through the Twitter, from CBC reporter Andrea Huncar, that apparently "the committee advising Dr. Corriveau met yesterday and recommended extending coverage to immunize boys against hpv" and as you can see, she explains later, there was no press release. I guess that's why we have Paula Simons.!/andreahuncar/status/197783501175668736

Andre Corriveau is hoping that the debate about providing the HPV vaccine to boys will provide a chance to have a new conversation about Gardasil, and whether school vaccination clinics are the best strategy to fight HPV.
“It challenges us to rethink our approach, to find better ways to make the vaccine available, in other places young people congregate,”

It's a shame there's no clarification on what Alberta "Top Doc" Andre Corriveau exactly meant by this. Should we be offering HPV vaccinations at the mall? Maybe the local Macs or 7-11? I believe what Mr. Corriveau is hinting at is that our provincial medical overlords would like to make the vaccine available with out pesky parents getting in the way.

California already cleared the way last autumn for girls as young as12 year old to get the HPV vaccine:
And New York's political class is following suit:

Anyways, back to the propaganda that is Paula Simons piece from the Edmonton Journal, where Chief Andre shares his thoughts on why children aren't getting the HPV vaccine at comparible rates to that of booster shots of the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.
"There was a lot of social marketing, telling people that this was an unsafe vaccine, that girls were being used as guinea pigs. It was quite strident and virulent, and it made a lot of people think, ‘I’m not sure I want my daughter to get this vaccine.’"

How does the Chief compare activists concerned with the danger of Gardasil, who's main avenue of spreading their message is through social media, with the money that Merck, the makers of Gardasil, has to throw behind an "advertising" campaign? What do activists on the internet have to gain by helping individuals make informed consent? Not nearly as much as Merck stands to gain by having governments offer the $400 Gardasil shot series for "free" to as many people as possible.

In 2007, eight months after Gardasil was approved for use in Canada, the federal governement approved $300 million to fund an HPV vaccination program. But here's where it get's more ineresting:
"Merck Frosst Canada Ltd., the maker of Gardasil, hired public relations giant Hill & Knowlton to push the immunization strategies using some well-connected lobbyists: Ken Boessenkool, a former senior policy adviser to Prime Minister Stephen Harper; Bob Lopinski, formerly with Premier Dalton McGuinty's office; and Jason Grier, former chief of staff to Health Minister George Smitherman.
According to Ontario consultant registration documents, Lopinski and Grier's lobbying activities include: 'Proposed policy decision to support a childhood immunization program for HPV and funding related thereto.'"
So Chief Medical Officer Andre Corriveau, would you really have us believe that "social marketing" can compare to a pharmaceutical giant hiring lobbyists who are former insiders to a provincial & federal (dear) LEADER?

But according to Paula Simons, I'm probably part of an "insidious...vocal lobby" myself:
"But there is a larger, more insidious international anti-vaccination movement out there, a vocal lobby that sees vaccines of all sorts as a Big Pharma plot.

The hysteria goes viral, with frightening anecdotes that blame all kinds of inoculations for all kinds of disasters, spreading globally."
So to do Paula proud, here are some frightening anecdotes:
Those escaping death still risk other severe side effects including seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Needless to say, after catching wind that Alberta taxpayers may soon be paying to inject boys with an HPV vaccine, I needed to find a way to clear my head from trying to understand the insanity, thus, my battle to shape my garden into something usable continued on this evening with, satisfactory results.

Many weeds still wait
For those of you looking to feed the garden that is your mind, here's a good interview on Gardasil with a doctor who still looks out for the public's interest, and not that of Big Pharma.

Victory on May Day Garden Style

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Or so the papers say.

May Day

Or so the Twitter says.

But is it a day for Occupy's Revival?

Or is it really a big joke by the Illuminati who celebrate their birthday May 1st (1776)

May Day was originally a communist day, and well, best I can tell, the Communists have always been supported by the Illuminati.

No matter.

Today was they day where I began my attack on the plot of land in the corner of my yard, that I am told was once a garden,

Check out all those earthworms
I managed to clear another section of weeds before the sun and his rays departed for the night.  Victory over this garden brings us all one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Most of what I've learned earlier today has slipped down the memory hole.  There is one last article fresh to my memory.  This is an article that discusses the fact that the sun is the greatest driver of climate and Earth changes.  Many will still claim global warming and/or climate change are driven by man, but to deny the many scientists and researchers proving a greater understanding of weather and solar effects on the planet--to deny them--could be disastrous.

I've no time now to  go in depth to any of this, but here are some people demonstrating a higher understanding of both weather and Earth Changes (earthquakes):
