Politicians are the Easiest ***

Five surgeons are discussing who were the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon says, 'I like to see Accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.'

The second responds, 'Yeah, but you should try Electricians! Everything inside them is colour-coded.'

The third surgeon says, 'No, I really think Librarians are the best; everything inside them is in alphabetical order.'

The fourth surgeon chimes in, 'You know I like Construction Workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would.'

But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed, 'You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine, and there are only two moving parts - the mouth and the arsehole - and they are interchangeable'

Goodbye, Michael Jackson and Thank You. ***

. . .with an acknowledgement that this World star had led a much troubled life, it can never be taken away from Michael Jackson the real love he had for all of humanity and best expressed by him in the chorus of his anthem to the human race, We Are The World:

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and
The entire human race

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me.

Message From Another ***

The passage below I read on Nancy's blog "Where in the World is Mrs. Smith". She is writing from Japan; she is traveling the country. I'm certain she wouldn't disapprove of my passing it on to you also. An important message.

Hiroshima ... click there
"I don't think I've ever hit the wall of broken humanity quite the way I did today. I've come face to face with my own brokenness, but never fallen humanity like this. Hiroshima. We visited the museum and the memorials today. The museum is quite graphic - showing pictures of burned bodies, shelled buildings, radiation disease. And why? War. Why? You can rationalize all day long if you want, but the upshot is, we will continue to do these horrible things to each other as long as the world is without hope. Nations will continue to oppress and abuse their people; leaders will continue to gain more and more power despite the cost to their people; individuals will continue to harbor their pain and display it through hatred and prejudice and anger and violence.There's only one answer for what I saw today. I am more and more a pacifist as I grow and see more of the world and its people and I am more and more aware of Who brings that peace that passes understanding . . ."

A very humbling message for all. It is past time that we each change ourself but never too late. When the last one reaches the resolve in his heart 'to be' peace, then all will be well.

Our Problem ***

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . . Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty" : Howard Zinn

Gardacil ***

Long time Brasscheck TV viewers know that we've been warning about Gardacil for over two years now.
Gardacil is an injected product that's being fraudulently promoted as a vaccine against cervical cancer.
States are actually looking at making this vaccine mandatory for all school aged girls.
Here's the news two years after we issued our unambiguous warning.


Its Time Has Come ***

It is time, wouldn't you agree? Watching this short video and then linking to others, I heard one man say he went 100 miles on 4 ounces! Yes, its time has come. There is much research and experimenting happening. Who is blocking the doors to the grand entrance?

Healing Laughter ***

Two blondes living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench talking, and one blonde says to the other, 'Which do you think is farther away... Florida or the moon?' The other blonde turns and says 'Helloooooooooo, can you see Florida ?????'

"Man at the Grave"

A man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother and started back toward his car when his attention was diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and kept repeating, "Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?"The first man approached him and said, "Sir, I don't wish to interfere with your private grief, but this demonstration of pain is more than I've ever seen before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A parent?" The mourner took a moment to collect himself, then replied, "My wife's first husband."

The Smoking Gun ***

In June of 2000, the Center for Disease Control, the World Wealth Organization, the FDA, "leading" scientists and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry got together for a secret meeting.

Their focus was the growing public and scientific awareness that mercury used as a preservative in vaccines for children had unleashed an epidemic of autism.

The participants came to three conclusions:

1. They acknowledged the autism/mercury connection was true (or at least highly plausible)

2. They conspired to create a statistical smokescreen to obscure the science

3. They agreed not to disclose anything that took place at the meeting.

Your tax dollars at work.

You Might Be a Misogynist if...you don't want Letterman fired
Kyle-Anne Shiver

There are not many mere words which will cause my normally quietly-simmering, red blood to boil over, but the things David Letterman has said on his show regarding a 14 year-old girl, and his ensuing non-apologies are in this league. That he now claims the remarks were aimed at Bristol Palin, a few years older than the younger sister, Willow, who was in New York with her mother, when he joked about her "being knocked up by Rodriguez" in the 7th inning, is a ridiculous ruse aimed at covering his own scrawny backside. David Letterman should lose his public forum immediately, as he has proven unworthy of it in all respects. He hasn't even enough decency to know what a vile, unforgivable thing he has done.
I am firmly convinced that the perpetrators of sexual abuse and rape, of both girls and women (and boys), are intrinsically deformed in their very souls. Sexual abuse is the most primitive and the most absolute of personal violations, from which many females never fully recover. In fact, psychiatrists have deemed sexual abuse to be "soul murder," and say that it is the most psychologically harmful among the entire spectrum of abuse scenarios. Exactly why this is so remains a scientific mystery. But whatever the cause, civilized people have known for many centuries that misogyny that is acted out on the body of a girl or woman is a supreme violation of all that is good. So, for David Letterman to even think in his private thoughts of making a 14 year-old girl the object of his wicked rape fantasy is purely beyond the pale. For him to actually speak aloud the picture-perfect words to that effect is ground for his being shunned from all polite company. For him to go to the extent of saying this on the national air waves, the most public of all public forums, is grounds for immediate dismissal, in my opinion.Letterman has made himself a verbal "flasher," sinking to the lowest of the low. He is now lower than a rodent in the trashiest gutter and ought to be treated as such. He does not even deserve to call himself a man.No genuine respecter of women could think otherwise, in my opinion.

Underground City of Giants Discovered - Missouri ***

MISSOURI'S BURIED CITY.A STRANGE DISCOVERY IN A COAL MINE NEAR MOBERLY.St. Louis, Mo., April 8 - The city of Moberly, Mo. is stirred up over the discovery of a wonderful buried city, which was discovered at the bottom of a coal shaft, 360 feet deep, which was being sunk near the city. A hard and thick stratum of lava arches in the buried city. the streets of which are regularly laid out and inclosed by walls of stone, which is cut and dressed in a fairly good, although rude, style of masonry. A hall 30 by 160 feet was discovered, wherein were stone benches and tools of all descriptions for mechanical service.
Further search disclose statues and images made of a composition closely resembling bronze, lacking lustre. A stone fountain was found, situated in a wide court or street, and from it a stream of perfectly pure water was flowing, which was found to be strongly impregnated with lime. Lying beside the foundation were portions of the skeleton of a human being. The bones of the leg measured, the femur four and one-half feet, the tibia four feet and three inches, showing that when alive the figure was three times the size of an ordinary man, and possessed of a wonderful muscular power and quickness.
The head bones had separated in two places, the sagittal and the caronal sutures having been destroyed. The implements found embrace bronze and flint knives, stone and granite hammers, metallic saws of rude workmanship, but proved metal, and others of similar character; they are not so highly polished, nor so accurately made as those now finished by our best mechanics, but they show skill and an evidence of an advanced civilization that are very wonderful.
The facts above given are vouched for by Mr. David Coates, the Recorder of the city of Moberly and Mr. George Keating, city Marshal who were of the exploring party. A further extended search will be made in a day or two.source:http://www.wunderkabinett.co.uk/damndata/index.php?/archives/1806-An-underground-city-of-giants-beneath-Moberly,-Missouri.html

Fear Rules ***

by Paul Craig Roberts
June 10, 2009 -- The power of irrational fear in the US is extraordinary. It ranks up there with the Israel Lobby, the military/security complex, and the financial gangsters. Indeed, fear might be the most powerful force in America.

Americans are at ease with their country’s aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, which has resulted in a million dead Muslim civilians and several million refugees, because the US government has filled Americans with fear of terrorists. “We have to kill them over there before they come over here.”

Fearful of American citizens, the US government is building concentration camps apparently all over the country. According to news reports, a $385 million US government contract was given by the Bush/Cheney Regime to Cheney’s company, Halliburton, to build “detention centers” in the US. The corporate media never explained for whom the detention centers are intended.

Most Americans dismiss such reports. “It can’t happen here.” However, In northeastern Florida not far from Tallahassee, I have seen what might be one of these camps. There is a building inside a huge open area fenced with razor wire. There is no one there and no signs. The facility appears new and unused and does not look like an abandoned prisoner work camp.

What is it for?

Who spent all that money for what?

There are Americans who are so terrified of their lives being taken by terrorists that they are hoping the US government will use nuclear weapons to destroy “the Muslim enemy.” The justifications concocted for the use of nuclear bombs against Japanese civilian populations have had their effect. There are millions of Americans who wish “their” government would kill everyone that “their” government has demonized.

When I tell these people that they will die of old age without ever seeing a terrorist, they think I am insane. Don’t I know that terrorists are everywhere in America? That’s why we have airport security and homeland security. That’s why the government is justified in breaking the law to spy on citizens without warrants. That’s why the government is justified to torture people in violation of US law and the Geneva Conventions. If we don’t torture them, American cities will go up in mushroom clouds. Dick Cheney tells us this every week.

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter "What are you doing?" She asked. "Hunting Flies" He responded. "Oh ! Killing any?" She asked. "Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell them apart?" He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone.

Laughter ***

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer.
The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, 'I'm very sorry for this mistake.
You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him.' I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk; naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car.'

Is This True? Worrisome Read ***

Obama Issues Order For “Extermination” Of Amazon Indians

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)
Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin today that President Obama has authorized the United States Southern Military Command to “immediately assist” Peruvian President Alan Garcia’s plan to “virtually exterminate” Amazonian Indians who for the past month have been protesting US mandated laws in the newly signed US-Peru so called Free Trade Pact that would “open their region to oil and gas drilling, hydroelectric projects and biofuels farming”.
To the growing violence in Peru instigated by the energy starved Empire of the United States we can read as reported by Britain’s Guardian’s News Service, and which says:
“Peru has declared a curfew in its Amazon jungle after dozens died and hundreds were injured in bloody clashes between security forces and indigenous tribes protesting against oil and mining projects.
The situation remained volatile last nighttonight as army and police units used helicopters and armoured vehicles to try to regain control of remote northern areas which were the scene of the country's worst violence in a decade.
Authorities said at least 23 police were killed, some with spears, and that two were missing. Indigenous leaders said more than 40 Indians, including three children, were killed.”
Not being reported to the American people is that the extermination of the Amazon Indians began almost immediately after Obama’s implementation of the Free Trade Pact with Peru, and as we can further read:

" InteLesting" - Disclosure ***

What I ran across.

More evidence of the escalation and strategies being employed to achieve disclosure. MH
Vive La France. Vive La UFO Revolution!
Michael Cohen m.cohen@allnewsweb.com

The words 'Nous ne sommes pas seuls' or 'We are not alone' will be somberly pronounced this week by a senior Government official of the nation that brought the world 'Liberté, égalité, fraternité'. France is set to concede that it is aware of an alien presence on earth by no later than Friday.

Paris has chosen follow the lead of maverick UFO nation Brazil and resist US pressure to continue delaying disclosure until America feels it is ready for the event.

It is believed that a telephone hot-line has been set up in Paris to deal with queries from panicky citizens. A special division of France's police department is also to be established: to handle UFO reports.

The French have gone to so much effort to protect their culture from encroaching 'Anglo-Saxon' influences and now they are preparing to protect their culture from what might be even more powerful extraterrestrial forces.It is believed Holland and Germany are set to soon follow France's lead.

A Genius Says Goodbye Gabriel Garcia Marquez ***

Mr. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, great Latin American writer, has said goodbye to the public life due to complications in his health: lymphatic cancer. He has sent a letter to his friends and thanks to the Internet we all are able to share it. This short text written by one of the most brilliant Latin Americans of the past years is really inspiring.

"If for an instant God forgot that I am just a puppet and He gave me one more piece of life, I would take advantage of that time, the best I could. I probably would not say everything I think, but definitely think all I say.

I would value things not for what they are worth but for what they represent.

I would sleep less and dream more, for every minute we close our eyes, we lose sixty seconds of light.

I would continue where others have stopped and I would rise while others sleep.

If God allowed me one more piece of life, I would dress simpler, would wallow in the sunlight, leaving uncovered, not only my body but my soul.

I would prove to men how wrong they are to think that they stop falling in love as they get older, since they actually start getting older as soon as they stop falling in love.

I would give wings to the children, but I would leave the child alone so that he can learn to fly on his own.

To the old, I would show them how death comes not with the aging process but with forgetting.

So many things I have learned from you . . . I have learned that everybody wants to live at the top of the mountain, forgetting that how we climb is all that matters

I have learned that when a newborn grabs his father's thumb he takes hold on him forever.

I have learned that a man has the right to look down on somebody only when he is helping him to get up.

So many things I have learned from you. . . .

Always tell what you feel and do what you think.

If I knew that today it would be the last time that I will see you, I will embrace you strongly to be the guardian of your soul.

If I would know that this would be the last minute that I will see you, I would say to you, "I love you"and wouldn't assume that you would know it.

There is always morning when life gives us another opportunity to make things good.

Keep always close to you your dear ones and tell them how much you need them and love them and take care of them.

Take time to say, "I am sorry", "Forgive me", and "Please", "Thank you" and all the nice and lovely words you know.

Nobody would remember you if you keep your thoughts secret. Force yourself to express them; show your friends and dear ones how much you care about them.

SEND THIS TO PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT OR LOVE. If you don't, tomorrow will be the same as today and it will not matter either...

For you, with much love and care.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
