OK, now I’m a conspiracy theorist.


I took the body of my comment on the previous post and made it into a post on its own, after finding these YouTube videos.  It seems relevant.

I read a comment on another site that really started me thinking. I normally shy away from conspiracy theories, but this one seems just a little *too* plausible.

It said that Holmes was supplied and set up by our own government. Crazy, you say?? Well, our economy is getting ready to completely collapse. We have a large percentage of our population who own legally registered guns, who are angry, and on the edge of revolution. We have a government who has set up a military unit (National Guard or Army I’m not certain) specifically to ‘deal with’ domestic unrest. And we have gun control/banning laws springing up once again all over the place.

What better reason to reign in the population’s right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment? How better to do it than with a schizophrenic? After all, if he says he was visited by men who told him how to do it, who will believe him? If he says he was visited by aliens who would believe him?

Food for thought. And no, I do not believe for an instant that our government is not fully capable of using one of our citizens as a scapegoat and making others, equally innocent, sacrificial lambs in the cause of protecting their own power structure. The question is whether our soldiers, ultimately, will go along with the arrest, detention, and ultimately the firing upon their own fellow citizens.

Here are two videos that bolster my ‘conspiracy theory’ …

Holder says straight up that “people need to be brainwashed’ into thinking about guns negatively, it’s at about 3:00 but the rest is instructive as well.  Interesting the timing of the shooting, given the whole ‘Fast and Furious’ debacle…we can’t have assault weapons in America because they end up in Mexico and are used to kill US citizens – but they wouldn’t have ended up in Mexico if Holder hadn’t authorized them being GIVEN to Mexican cartels!

Don’t forget that the UN treaty on small arms control is getting ready to be ratified by the US government, either.

Alex Jones breaks down exactly how our government will capitalize on this to take away legally registered guns from Americans:

ETA:  I don’t listen to Alex Jones a lot, just occasionally.  This is one of those times.  If you are of a mind, watch his review of the new Batman movie here:

Very, very interesting.  I think Hegel can be very pedantic and sometimes over the top, but I find Jones’ reference to a Hegelian dialect particularly apropos.

 

And here, for the counter argument to the gun control nuts screaming their heads off right now…


I give you Sam Williams. My hero of the week. Maybe the year.

Had he been in the theater that shooter would never have gotten off so many shots. And as to it being dark and smoky??? Not from the reports I’ve read, at least not initially. Besides, you aim toward the flash from the other gun…

Post Peak Medicine


As I’ve said before, I am interested in preventative care measures much more so than after the fact fixes.  And I’m advancing my education with the aim of being able to give primary care to my neighbors and community which will be needed even more so in the coming years.

I have had concerns for years about the impact of Peak Oil on medicine as we understand it today – syringes made from non renewable resources, used only once and disposed of just as a for instance.  All the medicines available today are available only because of fossil fuel inputs – what happens when those are too expensive to ‘waste’ on medical purposes?  I think perhaps even those in the medical community who might be Peak Oil aware tend to close their eyes and put their fingers in their ears chanting “LaLaLa” because there appear to be no answers to the question, and there is presently no alternative.  I admit, it is depressing and stressful to contemplate.

I found a site today that really excites me: Post Peak Medicine .  This is exactly the answer to my concerns even though much of it is still a work in progress.  I even found a page where the owner is asking for submissions from registered nurses and I really want to begin working on a submission!  I never pictured myself as having much to add to the nursing community but in this case I believe I do have important contributions to make, and that I have an obligation to try.  I will post here if my article is accepted so you can read if you are interested.

In other news, this house has been alcohol free for over a month.  No freak outs, no fights, no lapses of memory, no drama.  While I miss a cold beer on a hot evening, I’d prefer the money to stay in my bank account for things like the tire my husband suddenly needed to replace on his car, or the TB test we just found out he needed.  We both get more done as well…although I am still a gamer’s widow.  It evens out though, he loses me to the loom, spinning wheel, and school work.
