“US and Israeli Codependent Relationship is Not Just about Money”. Here’s the guts of it – “Adelson, however, cares little for the true racists. His obsession to shield Israel’s militant Zionist agenda trumped all other seemingly little irritants.”

“FBI documents recently published by Muckrock show that the FBI was investigating ties between the Vatican, Freemasons and the Mafia. The investigation involved an assassination plot against a Vatican official named Roberto Calvi who was involved in a deep conspiracy involving large sums of money and terrorist operations.” [Calvi was hung from a bridge in London] Now, about those dumb conspiracy theorists ….

“New Zealand government preparing to drown whole country in fluorides”. This from one of my correspondents:- “I’ve seen one of my granddaughters on fluoridated water here in the US start to get breasts at age 8 and start into puberty at 10”. Paying attention?

“Fukushima news; Oregon SALMON COLLAPSE California COAST REPORT”

“An eminent nuclear engineer claims that the triple meltdown at Fukushima is the world’s worst ever cataclysm, and is likely to continue affecting wildlife and humans for the next 250,000 years.” And I’d say that that’s conservative ….

“In the 1960s, the average UFO sightings reported nationwide totaled in the hundreds every year. (…) Since the year 2000, our nation averages about 8,000 UFO sighting reports per year. Something big has been happening. It’s time for our free press and media to wake up.”

“Sunday marks the start of Poison Prevention Week in America. (…) Here, though, “poison” is used to symbolize the three trappings of ego: passion, greed, or sensual attachment; aggression, aversion, or ill will; and ignorance, delusion, or confusion. These three poisons can keep us trapped — but it doesn’t have to be that way. (…) I’ve included a teaching on each of them.” A thought-provoking Buddhist viewpoint.

And, like any cave system, there’s an extraordinary history attached to the wonder…. “ worth a look!

“Democracy: How important is it to our happiness?” “Dr Matthew Beard, an ethicist and moral philosopher from the Ethics Centre, has looked closely at the issue by correlating three indexes on happiness, wellbeing and democracy.”

“What Kikkoman’s iconic soy sauce bottle says about Japan”. A very intriguing read!!!


“Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm. But the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it. Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.”
