The NSA’s Own ‘6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon’

If the NSA is  harvesting data 2-3 points from everyone (and yes, they are), they have a map way more intricate that anything we could ever collect on our own. They know everything about everyone who has ever talked to anyone who has ever talked to anyone you have ever talked to. Think about that.

English: Kevin Bacon.

In perspective, 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon  only requires “a link” at  some point in two people’s lives, nothing more substantial than a name in the credits. Yet, the NSA is collecting data 3 people away from everyone for every communication or other ‘link’. Everyone.

Oh, I’m sure that  many  will interpret the phrase  “terrorist suspects” to mean only the  million or so people  on the public  terrorist watchlist, but that doesn’t actually include the other “suspects” such as those who support the Constitution – you know, like every law enforcement officer, military member and duly elected representative in America is sworn to do.

Do you bank at BofA, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of the recent Boston Bombings  also banks? That’s a “link.”

Do you use Facebook, where there are literally dozens of Al Qaeda affiliated groups? That’s a “link.”

Have you visited Twitter or Youtube, where the digital terror group (if you accept the FBI’s terminology)  ‘Anonymous’ shares information about their activities? That’s a “link,” too.

Or, admittedly my favorite example, did you vote for President Barack Obama, who has provided weapons to militant terrorists abroad  and personally signed off on the sale of guns used in well over 200 Mexican murders? That’s a “link.”

Oh, did you think you had to have actual contact with these people in order for it to count? Bah. Clearly you’re not familiar with how the law is abused in America today. Each time someone tells me I’m blowing things out of proportion with my pessimistic view of government, I send them the following links:

I read an article yesterday from the NY Daily News that tried so very hard to dispel the theory that the NSA is the American Stasi. His reasoning is perfectly sound, as long as you are willing to bury your head in the ground and believe every lie told to you.

The Stasi only wishes they had the ability to track and record every single movement and communication, along with legal authority to ‘disappear you‘ without judicial oversight. Where the Stasi  failed, our government has not only succeeded, but excelled. Why stop with targeting of those who are actually intending to do ill – heck, even after multiple warnings the Boston Marathon will never be the same. Meanwhile, Shia LeBeouf tells it like it was…OVER FIVE YEARS AGO:

Surely they don’t think the ever-goofy Shia is a terrorist? Must be the hair, right? Are you fed up yet?

Marijuana for kids?

A heart broken mother, speaking about medical marijuana…

“I didn’t try to give it to her again,” Maxim recalls. “The only thing that I look back and say I wish I’d done something different is I wish I started medical marijuana sooner, I wish I continued it, I wish I wasn’t so scared.” [Read Hailey’s story  by Valerie Vande Panne]

What right does anyone have to tell us what we can and cannot put into our bodies? I can’t even imagine how this mother feels, watching her child die. How can you look into that little face and not be moved?

WHEN SHANNON MAXIM was struggling to help her daughter through leukemia, medical marijuana was still illegal in Massachusetts. On November 6, 2012, 63 percent of Massachusetts voters approved the use of marijuana to treat conditions in circumstances where a doctor thinks the benefits outweigh the risk. Eighteen states and the District of Columbia  recognize medical marijuana, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, and all but two of those jurisdictions permit its use in children. The federal government still considers marijuana a banned drug and has targeted medical marijuana clinics and dispensaries, primarily in Western states, for prosecution.

“I’ve been studying marijuana since 1967,” says Grinspoon. “I started to study it because I was so concerned about all of these young people who used marijuana, that they were harming themselves. I believed all the things everybody was told about it. My best friend at that time was Carl Sagan, and I would tell him not to smoke it, and he would say, ‘Oh, Lester, it’s harmless.’ ”

Grinspoon changed his mind after his own teenage son used marijuana when he was undergoing treatment for lymphocyte leukemia in 1971; the boy, Danny, died of the cancer in 1973. Danny found that medical marijuana eased his suffering from chemotherapy. That inspired Grinspoon to learn more. “I went to the Harvard library and started reading,” he says. “It fascinates me: one, the properties of the drug itself, and two, that I and so many others had been so misled about it.”

Trying to  contact your legislator is a nightmare.  You get that same party line: it’s a gateway drug, it kills brain cells. You know the routine.  It’s all been proven false, but hey, these are politicians who can’t just let the facts get in the way.

Heck, I’ve even contacted California congressman Tom McClintock  and received the very same spiel from him. I tried educating him on the subject.  I tried to impress upon him how important it was that he pass legislation to end the drug war.

Hopefully, you know that the state of California can, if it wants, nullify the Federal law.  Why it hasn’t, I don’t know.    Nullification is the last great hope of liberty in America, and all the states have the power to nullify any federal law they don’t like…well almost any law. The point is, California should have protected all the dispensaries, and they just sat there and did nothing. Only a small handful of districts have done anything to preserve the voter-approved Prop 215.

Some doctors argue that there may be “special dangers” for young people using medical marijuana.

Like what? The alternative is that they will die. That’s happening all too needlessly anyways! None of us are going to live forever, but for a child to die needlessly — shame on us.

Please share this. This child was killed by the medical community. They murdered her as sure as I’m sitting here typing this. Someone should be held accountable… but who? The courts, the judges, the police, the legislature?

It’s got to stop. People have a right to be healthy. Medical marijuana for anyone in need is the right thing to do.

Marijuana for kids?  Hell, yes!

Why are we afraid to die?

I think I’ve heard of everything now. The medical industry has seen the need –  or rather will create the need – for 3D & 4D ultrasound pictures of babies in the womb.

I know one young mother, who just happened to be on welfare, that would get an ultrasound every two or three weeks. I was so dumbfounded it left me speechless.  These things have consequences! I’ll bet most people don’t even give it a second thought.  The doctor recommends it, the mother is right there, because if a doctor said so, she “must” need it. [Read  The Dangers of Prenatal Ultrasound.]

You couldn’t pay me to go to a doctor. I mean, how dumb do you have to be to let them practice on you. Just this week one lady woke up just in time as  they were harvesting her organs. Maybe she was dead, maybe she wasn’t, but these people are paid to know!

Then a woman underwent a “simple hysterectomy” —  pardon me, but they don’t call it a radical hysterectomy for nothing —  they are doing major  surgery for crying out loud.  Hello?  Apparently, they nicked her colon and didn’t notice. She almost died.

Check the stats: more people die due to “properly administered” medical care than any thing else. That includes drug interactions,  immunization, treatments, and  surgery.  Do you know how many people go into the hospital just to get sick with something else? I couldn’t make this stuff up.

We are so afraid of dying that we will undergo just about anything. Have you seen some of those “procedures” they put people through?  No way.

I can’t think of a thing that I would go to the doctor for. Not one thing. We have a chiropractor we see regularly –  but I hate to compare him with an allopathic medical doctor — to me “doctor” is a four letter word and not good for much.  I’ve been to over 300 doctors in my life and I can name on one hand the number that did me any good.  They were all chiropractors.  I’ve had five major surgeries and you can stick me with a fork — I’m done.

I don’t care what they do with their Obamacare, but I don’t want it and mostly I don’t need it. They can’t make me use it and they sure can’t make me pay for it.

I had no idea that so many plants did so much.  I mean did you know know baking soda kills cancer?  Baking Soda! If I were a doctor, I would sure be embarrassed by that. Wouldn’t you? They are idiots, educated in a system that taught them only how to follow the rules and write prescriptions.

We’ve learned to take care of ourselves and I love it.  I’ll never be 100% again, thanks to certain medical doctors, but I feel better than I’ve felt in years. I’ve been to one doctor in the past 12 years. That doctor was a holistic doctor and I refused his $900 blood work-up, and any other testing.  He sat down and talked to me for about 45 minutes, charged me $275.00 and sent me on my way. He couldn’t help me, because I wasn’t willing, ready or able to change.

If I wanted to change, I know just what to do, but I’m not willing, therefore I’m going to die “sooner.” I’d be willing to bet money I will still live a lot longer since I stopped going to the doctor. They had me on so many drugs I didn’t know which end was up most of the time.  I was bad off and I don’t ever want to be that way again. I  know I can care for myself much better than any  medical  doctor who sees me only a few times each  year.

Besides, if doctors don’t even  believe in their treatments, why should I?
