What ISIS Really Wants?!

In the end, like all good Abrahamic extreme religious fundamentalists, they desire to help bring about the Apocalypse. In between now and then they intend to instate extreme Sharia Law for Sunnis and execute or enslave everyone else. The rank -and-file do not intend to survive long term. They intend finding glory denied them in otherwise unfulfilled lives. Their leaders, however, do not necessarily buy into this holy martyrdom -- they simply know what "records" to play for their minions. They don't plan on going down with the ship -- their minions can die glorious deaths, while they "capitalize"....

It behooves us not to engage in calling them unIslamic, when in fact, they are over-the-top extremely rigid fundamentalistic Islamic (as our own extreme Christian fundamentalists are extremely pre-Old Testament Christian). Both groups are insane and dishonor their religions; but, that is somewhat irrelevant in dealing with ISIS. What is needed is for us NOT to militarily intervene in Syria, but to make sure Iraq is able to defend itself and to integrate Sunni and Shia into Iraqi governmental rule in the process of fighting against a common enemy, the ISIS.


Russia's Putin: Latter Day Fascist

After WWI, a weakened Germany looked for a way to reestablish itself as a world player. They turned to vainglorious strongman Hitler. Russia is looking to Putin. Other parallels are uncanny. My summarizing the following article would shortchange you, so do read:

Is There A God?

While teaching 8th grade Resource Language Arts, I had a student named Keith whose attitude and behavior and physical appearance was getting worse and worse. He even started using his pen to mark satanic symbols on his body. Finally one day I asked him if he really believed in the Devil. He indicated that he certainly did. My reply was that if there was a devil, then didn't it naturally follow that their was a God.

The next day, I brought a paperback copy of 'Life After Life" and put it on his desk. I told him that I'd give him an 'A' every day if he'd sit with that on his desk and behave himself & that he didn't have to do the classwork / just sit quietly without napping. He did so for a number of days without opening the book, but boredom and perhaps curiosity finally prompted him to open it and have a look. Quick peeks were followed by short bursts of reading as the days marched on. Finally, when he had received enough 'A's and he was drawn into the true stories of NDE experiences, he began reading in earnest. He finished the book. Meanwhile he's stopped renewing satanic symbols and began keeping his appearance up. One day he simply gave me back the book and went to work on the class English assignment.

But that's not the end of the story. Years later, while I was teaching at a different school, I was walking in the school courtyard and noticed a TV camera crew entering to set up for a camera shoot. Suddenly a young man put down his load and hurried to see me while calling my name. It was Keith. He was hale and hearty. And after a quick conversation he rushed back to retrieve his load so the crew could proceed.

Yeah! He'd made it.

Leave My Drinkin' Alone!

My father was a psychiatric social worker working with MHMR's Alcoholic Treatment Program. There was an alcoholic who said one day, after a group session,"You can treat my alcoholism all you want to; but, Damn it! you leave my drinkin' alone!".

The Doctors Said...

My friend and I were on vacation.  We'd just arrived after midnight and pulled into a bowling alley in Hayward, Wisconsin.  We'd just barely sat down at the bar when an older guy came down and sat next to us.  I figured he was going to hit us up for a drink -- but instead, he ordered up a shot of whiskey for himself and determinedly slapped his money down on the counter.  He ruefully looked at us and told us that he'd just got out of the hospital for a bleeding ulcer / and that the doctors told him that if he had even just a single drink that it'd kill him.  When the bartender sat the drink down in front of him, he carefully picked it up and carefully studied it for a moment.  Then he suddenly tipped his head back and quickly downed it.

We didn't know what to think.  Then, about thirty seconds later, the fellow tugged on my friend's sleeve and said, "Can you give me a ride to the hospital?"  He did. That morning, the alcoholic was soon dead.

Crustal Hydration & The Great Plains

During the time of the dinosaurs, the area that encompasses the Great Plains was a huge inland sea. Obviously plate tectonics played a role in uplifting this vast area; but, "geologists have long been puzzled by how the High Plains could be so big, so high and so smooth. The plains descend gently from roughly 6,000 feet to 2,000 feet above sea level as they stretch for thousands of square miles, from the Texas Panhandle to southern Montana, and from western Kansas to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
"It's well-established that much of the West was still at sea level 70 million years ago and that tectonic shifts don't fully explain the High Plains' altitude."

Water Activates Faults?: A Japanese geophysicist has shown that when Serpentine is put under the same pressures and temperatures as is found at 400 miles depth in the Earth’s lithosphere, water oozes out. This supports the theory that as ‘waterlogged’ serpentine is subducted earthquake/volcanic activity is increased as water is freed. [ Note that serpentine contains 13% water by weight. This information has important implications for people living in the Pacific Northwest where the Juan de Fuca Plate is being subducted.] Discover Magazine

Karma: There Is Justice In The Universe

When you see someone run a red light or observe a cruel act, you are witnessing proof that the perpetrators do NOT fully believe that they have a soul. Believing that you have a soul means that you know that wrongful acts are “marks” against you both in this life and the "life after". This directly implies that there is “justice in the universe”. This is called the Absolute Law of Cause and Effect a.k.a. “karma”. You cannot escape it. You are both ‘cause’ and ‘effect’ in a perpetual evolutionary learning cycle. [The metaphysical manifests in the physical.]
When a tobacco corporate executive pumps extra nicotine and additives into cigarettes that teens prefer, he is commiting a soulless act. When an elected leader betrays his oath of office, he damages his soul as well. When a student bullies another student, he sets into motion energetic forces that will come back to ‘bite him’. When a thief remains undetected, consequences can only ‘collect interest’.

Karma operates on the group level as well. Whether it’s a family or a nation, wrongful thoughts and deeds come back to haunt their owners. German soldiers operating the ovens in death camps might escape human justice, but universal justice is inevitable. Tobacco company employees share varying degrees of responsibility, just as members of gangs and lynch mobs share karma….through their shared “consciousness”.

Practical Psychology On The Highway

Australian traffic authorities report that a new road-safety campaign, which suggests that men who speed are compensating for having small penises, has been very successful.  The ads show eye-rolling women holding up their pinky fingers as a man speeds past.
[My Comment: The same ‘rule-of-overcompensation’ applies to those who drive oversized vehicles.] 

If You Never Aged, How Long Would You Live?

Each year, American adults have, overall, a 1-in-1,743 chance of dying in an accident.  That means that if health problems didn’t kill you & you never aged, you could possibly live to be 1,743 years old before a fatal accident got you.  But you could do better. A 9-year-old child has much lower odds of accidental death, about 1 in 10,000.  If we could keep everyone to this low rate (avoiding work and driving would probably help), we could typically live 10,000 years.  About 37 percent of the population could do better yet, living on average to the ripe old age of 20,000.

Treating Ringoids: Ringworm Type Skin Fungi

When my aging mother's elderly Chihuahua developed severe itchy skin, I took it home with me. After a trip to the vet and a prescription for Cushings disease, she was fine. But later, I developed what looked like ringworm on my skin. A trip to the dermatologist told me it was some type of 'ringoid' similar to ringworm. A steroid super cream was given to me to try. It failed. So, after a bit of research and experimentation, I developed a successful treatment plan of my own.
What I recommend is an application of a general anti-fungal solution in the morning (Fungi Nail) / Lotramin cream in the afternoon / and liquid extract Cats Claw at bedtime.

[I won't detail my arduous trial and error steps along the way. And if this combination doesn't work for you, then you might include TeaTree oil and/or Black Walnut tincture. Also understand that high blood sugar may complicate matters if you are diabetic.

NASA: Fiery Looping Coronal Rain On The Sun

Check out this video on YouTube:

In 2012, an eruption on the sun's surface scored a solar weather hat trick, racking up all three of the major phenomenon scientists observe: a solar flare, a coronal mass ejection (CME), and coronal rain, "complex moving structures in association with changes in magnetic field lines that loop up into the sun's atmosphere."
What makes the show special is the coronal rain, charged plasma slowly dripping in fiery loops along the sun's magnetic fields.
Though the video seems to play as though in slow motion, it's actually quite sped up, covering a nearly 22-hour period from 12:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. EDT on July 19, 2012.

Headline: May 10, 2015 - Putin Revises His Stance on the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact

Recently Russian President Vladimir Putin defended the infamous pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union that agreed to divide up Eastern Europe, when on August 23, 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union agreed to carve up eastern Europe between them in a secret clause of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact on non-aggression (this included secret protocols dividing up Poland and allotting the Baltic states to Moscow). Putin in 2009 had condemned this pact.
