Thomas Paine

To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

FOCUS: Chris Hedges | The Final Battle

Chris Hedges, Truthdig
Hedges writes: "It is about protecting the state from us. That is why no one in the executive or legislative branch is going to restore our rights. The new version of the NDAA, like the old ones, provides our masters with the legal shackles to make our resistance impossible. And that is their intention."

Idle No More is the most significant social movement of 2012. Idle No More was started by four aboriginal Saskatchewan women who are angry that the Harper government failed to consult with aboriginal leaders before amending and passing legislation that directly impacts aboriginal treaty rights and Canada’s protected waterways. Idle No More calls on all people to join them in solidarity which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

Canada, it’s time. We need to fix this in our generation!

Contrary to what some media outlets are reporting, Chief Teresa Spence is is not only on a hunger strike "to protest Bill C-45 or even the deplorable treatment her community has received since declaring an national emergency last year. She has vowed to continue her hunger strike until the prime minister, the Queen or a representative, agrees to sit down in good faith with First Nations leaders to rebuild what has become a fractured and abusive relationship. She is staying in a tipi on Victoria Island, which sits below Parliament and the Supreme Court of Canada."
http://apihtawikosisan.com/2012/12/16/canada-its-time-we-need-to-fix-this-in-our-generation/

"YOU Need to speak for Chief Theresa Spence! She has gone without food, she is too weak to speak for herself, so YOU must do it. Speak...Loudly...Now is not the time to be polite...Speak...Loudly...use your voice together...so that the world can hear you...go to the places where we are not allowed to go...Speak for her.....Amazing. They shut down the intersection! Chief Theresa Spence is on a hunger strike, she will not end it until she is dead, or until she can meet face to face with Stephen Harper to discuss the pain her people are feeling..."
http://www.idlenomore1.blogspot.ca/2012/12/aerial-view-of-toronto-round-dance.html

Everyone needs to watch and share Chief Teresa Spence's Message to all people -Interview with Chief Theresa Spence on December 21st, 2012 from the site of her hunger strike in Ottawa.

A powerful Native woman explains why Native people and allies are taking this action across Canada and the world!

Message Via Chief Theresa Spence as she enters her 15th Day of her hunger strike "Chief is still strong, very much alive today - thank you Creator for giving us hope and reason to live! Unity and strength is key to success." AND "Chief celebrated xmas eve w family and friends. Chief wishes all a very Merry Xmas and sends her love. Follow >>http://twitter.com/ChiefTheresa

>On December 4th Canada had over 2 million protected lakes, and over 8,500 protected rivers.

>On December 5th Canada now has only 97 Protected lakes and 62 protected rivers. (90 per cent of the protected lakes are on 1% rich conservative territory) Thanks to Stephen Harper

MUST READ: "Aaron Paquette, A First Nations artist does a wonderful job of highlighting why this is not just about our first Nations peoples. It is about EVERYONE in Canada:
http://www.aaronpaquette.net/?p=1260

Why ‘Idle No More’ is gaining strength, and why all Canadians should care

"Spence’s hunger strike is not just about Attawapiskat. It is not just about housing or school funding. And it is not just about the omnibus budget Bill C-45, which eliminates federally protected waterways and facilitates the sale of reserve lands without consultation. It is about all of that and more. Spence’s hunger strike is part of the Idle No More movement, which, in a matter of days, has become the largest, most unified, and potentially most transformative Indigenous movement at least since the Oka resistance in 1990. The fundamental issue is the nation-to-nation treaty relationship with Indigenous peoples that Canadian governments repeatedly flout by passing legislation without free, prior and informed consent."

Idle No More is the most significant social movement of 2012. Idle No More was started by four aboriginal Saskatchewan women who are angry that the Harper government failed to consult with aboriginal leaders before amending and passing legislation that directly impacts aboriginal treaty rights and Canada’s protected waterways. Idle No More calls on all people to join them in solidarity which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

Canada, it’s time. We need to fix this in our generation!

Contrary to what some media outlets are reporting, Chief Teresa Spence is is not only on a hunger strike "to protest Bill C-45 or even the deplorable treatment her community has received since declaring an national emergency last year. She has vowed to continue her hunger strike until the prime minister, the Queen or a representative, agrees to sit down in good faith with First Nations leaders to rebuild what has become a fractured and abusive relationship. She is staying in a tipi on Victoria Island, which sits below Parliament and the Supreme Court of Canada."

"YOU Need to speak for Chief Theresa Spence! She has gone without food, she is too weak to speak for herself, so YOU must do it. Speak...Loudly...Now is not the time to be polite...Speak...Loudly...use your voice together...so that the world can hear you...go to the places where we are not allowed to go...Speak for her.....Amazing. They shut down the intersection! Chief Theresa Spence is on a hunger strike, she will not end it until she is dead, or until she can meet face to face with Stephen Harper to discuss the pain her people are feeling..."

http://www.aaronpaquette.net/?p=1260

Why ‘Idle No More’ is gaining strength, and why all Canadians should care

"Spence’s hunger strike is not just about Attawapiskat. It is not just about housing or school funding. And it is not just about the omnibus budget Bill C-45, which eliminates federally protected waterways and facilitates the sale of reserve lands without consultation. It is about all of that and more. Spence’s hunger strike is part of the Idle No More movement, which, in a matter of days, has become the largest, most unified, and potentially most transformative Indigenous movement at least since the Oka resistance in 1990. The fundamental issue is the nation-to-nation treaty relationship with Indigenous peoples that Canadian governments repeatedly flout by passing legislation without free, prior and informed consent."

I'm not sure why whoever posted this chose to sensationalize the title when the reality is even better. It should have been something more like "Security Guards Dealt With Tidily by Grandmothers Before They Could Really Attack." These folks were ready with their own security, and it was effective. Their dance was able to continue for several minutes after the grannies chased off the security guards. If you love Native American singing as much as I do (so much heart and passion), this is a magnificent video. Made me cry.

Round Dances are generally about friendship, welcome, unity. People step sideways in a circle, and if there are too many people for one circle or it is a formal Friendship Dance, another often forms in the middle, usually facing out, towards the other dancers, going in the opposite direction (usually shaking hands with each person if it is an official Friendship Dance). When a round dance is done at a Pow Wow, it is often explained that it is an especially appropriate dance for visitors to take part in. So if you have the amazing good fortune to happen upon one of these round dance flash actions, don't hesitate to politely join the circle.

Our only hope lies in more unity than humankind has yet to achieve, but the fire that Idle Idle No More has lit in people's hearts—a fire that cleanses rather than consuming—is turning into a conflagration around the globe. Deep roots grow strong branches. I am tremendously encouraged by this rise of indigenous energy and purpose. Share to help the news get out and because it is a great little video of a magnificent action.

Dr Deirdre Little and her co-author, obstetrician Dr Harvey Ward from the University of NSW, are urging further testing of the Australian vaccine for the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer.

"Fertility is not a small matter. It should not be placed at risk by an absence of published research," said Dr Little.

When a 16-year-old patient came to her North Bellingen surgery in 2009 complaining of having lost her period and experiencing hot flushes, six months after being given three Gardasil vaccinations, Dr Little had doubts.

But further investigation raised real concerns of a link. The doctors warn there may be a group of young women who should not be given the vaccine, which has been administered to teenage girls across Australia since 2007. It is due to be given to boys from next year.

"It's important to be certain that fertility is protected at all costs, as premature menopause in a teenager is one of the most disastrous consequences," said Dr Ward.

"We need to be certain that a vaccine does not diminish egg-bearing capacity."

Premature menopause is rare in girls so young. But if there is a problem with the vaccine, Dr Little says it may go undetected because one third of teenage girls are on the pill, which prevents ovulation and masks the symptoms of ovarian failure. The doctors say further studies are needed.

Dr Little notified the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of a "possible adverse event following HPV vaccination". She says while there have been no other notifications of premature menopause, four cases of "scant periods" have been reported.

Dr Little is an advocate of vaccination, which she regards as a "gift to medicine", but is worried that Gardasil had been rushed into use without the "rigorous standards" applied to established vaccines.

Vaccine-maker CSL recorded a record profit this year because of higher than expected royalty payments from Gardasil as the vaccine spreads around the globe.

One case of premature menopause may not mean anything but the consequences for young women are so dire that further research is warranted.

Relative trends in hospitalizations and mortality among infants by the number of vaccine doses and age, based on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 1990–2010

Abstract

In this study, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, 1990–2010, was investigated; cases that specified either hospitalization or death were identified among 38,801 reports of infants. Based on the types of vaccines reported, the actual number of vaccine doses administered, from 1 to 8, was summed for each case. Linear regression analysis of hospitalization rates as a function of (a) the number of reported vaccine doses and (b) patient age yielded a linear relationship with r 2 = 0.91 and r 2 = 0.95, respectively. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% (107 of 969) for 2 doses to 23.5% (661 of 2817) for 8 doses and decreased linearly from 20.1% (154 of 765) for children aged <0 .1=".1" 0.="0." 10.7="10.7" 801="801" aged="aged" children="children" class="text_exposed_show" for="for" of="of" span="span" to="to" year="year">9 year. The rate ratio (RR) of the mortality rate for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 vaccine doses is 1.5 (95% confidence interval (CI), 1.4–1.7), indicating a statistically significant increase from 3.6% (95% CI, 3.2–3.9%) deaths associated with 1–4 vaccine doses to 5.5% (95% CI, 5.2–5.7%) associated with 5–8 vaccine doses. The male-to-female mortality RR was 1.4 (95% CI, 1.3–1.5). Our findings show a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and deaths. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants might receive. Finding ways to increase vaccine safety should be the highest priority.

So perhaps the Puritans were right on this one....
In 1647, The English Parliament passed a law that made Christmas illegal. Christmas festivities were banned by Puritan leader Oliver Cromwell, who considered feasting and revelry on what was suppose to be a holy day to be immoral. Anyone caught celebrating was arrested. The ban was only lifted when the Puritans lost power in 1660. However, the Puritans in America banned Christmas between 1659 and 1681.

The photo shows a bizarre THRONE which the Pope sits on - it is a scupture which says 'Jesus rising from the depths of the ocean after a nuclear holocaust' - there is no Biblical precendent for this - and besides, the 'Jesus' looks like the skeletal head of a reptilian dinosaur from most angles. The Vatican is weird and it's beliefs are weird.... Many high ranking masons have informed me that the Vatican is in the grip of a Satanic cabal... One of the recent tactics has been to BAN EXORCISM from taking place.... Father Amorth, a full-time exorcist in Rome says this: "The Vatican approved a new ritual which, for the exorcists, is a disaster. It forbids acting in the case of a curse, when this is the source of 90 percent of the cases of possession. It forbids acting if there is no previous certainty of diabolical action, when this can be understood only in the course of action.." in other words, the Vatican now warns and forbids it's own exorcists to cast out demons and the devil.

Selected Comments : Is There a Scientific Consensus on Global Warming ? 
If you choose to read the thread, I have been struck by the entries from Quietman

  1. I have been concerned about Climate change since the late 70's when my brother in law warned me about the dangers of the earth as a heat sink, and a room mate explained work she was doing about the degree of deforestation in th Amazon, Congo and Southeast Asia. When I heard about Mauna Loa I became, as the "deniers" here would call, an alarmist.

    The main deniers of ACC here all seem to present a reasonable face and continually provide information and links to support their arguments or to question assertions of those that support ACC.

    But many of their arguments appear to me to be strained at best, and most telling I have yet to see much admission of fallibility. Both John and Chris, and others have made many many observations and provided countless sources backing up their assertions, many of which have not been effectively countered, yet the deniers continue to proclaim their views almost unchanged.
    I was dissappointed that Chris left one of the discussions because some arguments were brought up to counter his assertions after he left, and I do not know enough to assess their validity. But in every case that he has responded his arguments have been clear and totally supported.

    the argument that the deniers here are not as critical of sources that object to ACC as they are to sources that support them is extremely important.
    Also that there is no competing theory. As with the anti evolution debate, there are dozens of competing theories, almost all mutually exclusive. The interest seems to be on proving ACC to be false rather than finding out the truth.
    Quitman keeps insisting it is a tectonic issue, and all very clear, yet it seems to me that Chris effectively demonstrated that every one of his contentions was not supported by research. that in fact we know the amount of carbon produced by tectonic effects, and it is 1% of the extra CO2 in the atmosphere.
    I have yet to read anything that Chris or John have written that was factually in error or where their conclusion was not justified.

    The fact that there are almost no peer reviewed articles that contradict ACC is a towering argument. That does not by itself mean that the consensus is right. It does not mean that there is not a huge conspiracy . But a huge conspiracy on this scale would require some massive fudging of data, or a degree of peer pressure that is clearly not occurring. Certainly in Soviet Russia there was a mass conspiracy supporting Lysenkian genetics. No papers were allowed to be published in scientific journals that did not support it. Yet all the real scientists knew that this was happening, and went along with it because they would face severe penalties if they didn't. I know of no scientist who supports ACC who is "pressured" to do so because of pressure and therefore does not publish valid research data that would counter it. I know of no scientists who refuse to look at research because they are scared it might force them to disbelieve ACC.
    This does not mean that there are not political pressures to support ACC that distort aspects of how it is presented and that have serious political imperatives.
    Those should be faced head on and counteracted.
    Many people on this site have pointed out the obvious and sometimes shameful attempts to bolster anti ACC views that were unscientific. this should not be disregarded. Nor should the funding by right wing and energy based organizations that have an ideological or financial agenda.
    but there has been sufficient time and thousands of research papers detailing ACC and if it was incorrect in the main then a competing theory that fit all the facts would have emerged.

    I consider myself an alarmist because there IS a consensus on climate change and almost nothing is being done about it. That is very alarming. There are potential consequences that are indeed catastrophic. ACC is not a problem in isolation. There are innumerable environmental crisis that are happening at the same time, many of which are greatly exacerbated by ACC. Not all are real and not all will be as bad as some predict. I do know that deforestation, certain kinds of pollution, the devastation of ocean life, biodiversity loss, and contamination of various parts of the environment are accelerating. Atmospheric CO2 is accelerating as well. Yet in spite of worldwide political and public consensus, almost nothing is being done that could conceivably have any effect. It is like a car heading toward a cliff, we can see it, but instead of taking our foot off the accelerator and on the brake, we are untying the shoe on the accelerator, so that if we do want to stop we can take the shoe off and press not quite so hard with our bare foot.

    As Risky puts it, why not just really slow down CO2 production. If we do cut it drastically and it turns out not to be a big problem, we can gear back up very easily. However if we don't, the risks of Greenland melting are quite real. It might not, but it might. There are many who believe that IPCC conclusions are ridiculously optimistic.
    There are thousands of scientists who are convinced research show significant ACC is happening, and that the consequences could be devastating. So lets cut back to pre 1990 levels for 20 years and see what the research shows then.

    There are extremists who either don't understand science and therefore make false exaggerated claims. And there are ideologues who believe that they have to overplay their hand to counter the "enemy". But I am in contact with some of these people and none of them believe that they are wrong but are pulling this scam because they will get rich. They all believe they are right, and just want to keep the evil corporation from destroying the planet.
    On the other hand we do know the tobacco companies knew they were wrong, but lied and obfuscated about cancer as long as possible. We know that Financial companies knowingly lied to all sorts of people. We know the govenrment covered up what companies like Enron and Anderson were doing, and knew that the current financial structure was "toxic". It does not seem unreasonable to suppose that Exxon,and the Heritage foundation would lie, knowingly lie, about ACC in order to keep making huge profits. The idea that the profit motive is what is driving the science behind ACC seems almost ludicrous given recent history and the structure of our economic system.

    I, however am fully an alarmist, because I think it is possible that the Greenland Ice cap could melt substantially in 50 years. I do believe that there could be a tipping point that affects the Sargasso ocean current or some other currently stable climactic factor in a period of a decade or two. I do believe there are potential consequences that could wreak havoc on our society and on the world. I also believe that there could be solutions that will mitigate the problems.
    I also believe that nothing serious will be done about the issue until there is some devastating crisis that puts the deniers into shell shock, and that forces action. By then it may be too late to avoid some of the seroius consequences.
    these polite websites that argue back and forth will seem rather bizarre then.

    ACC could be wrong. I think it extremely unlikely, and I think that it will be not because it is "wrong" but because there is some other deeper issue that really LOOKS like ACC, just as Quantum relativistic physics really LOOKS newtonian in daily life.
    the arguments of the deniers (except for Quietman, since he is convinced his theory explains everything) are not consistant systematic theories and are just flotsam thrown to obscure matters.
    If the consequences were not so serious I would think it was great. but the "debate" is actually causing serious delays in making necessary immediate changes in human activities. it has been the United States for the last 20 years being the lynchpin in stopping concerted efforts to cut back CO2 emissions, and that has allowed China and india and others to increase their CO2 output to US levels, and now they are starting to obfuscate as much as we have.
  2. Bruce Frykman at 05:52 AM on 19 March, 2009
    Why I am a skeptic:

    1) The climate change debate is fueled by cash: huge sums of it directed by politicians to research institutions, "green" businesses, and government "green" agencies and regulators, all of whom seek personel gain through profit or careerism. This is not unlike any other unwarrented influence attained by combining religion and state to the detriment of human liberty. Replacing black robed preists with white coated "scientists" does not alter this unwholesome relationship.

    2) The politicians and press who promote AGW will entertain no counter arguments, we do not hear debates but only lectures by those who seek to gain from this scam.

    3) No legitimate science would ever allow the many fradulent claims made for it by its most ardent political supporters to go unchallenged based upon any respect for honesty. ie a warm winter in Alaska is offered as "proof" of "global" warming while a cold European winter is just "weather". Nonsense of course, but no refutaion from the scam artists whose careers depend on the scam.

    3) Science is never driven by 'belief' or 'consensus' and certainly science is never 'settled' Not even Newton's 'Laws' of motion. All of these nonsensical statemements have been made by the people who seek personal gain from this scam. And which authority claims to speak for these legions of lock stepped "scientists"? Who granted this authority over consensus taking other than politicians? Who "authorised" anyone to speak for this "science"? If science is "settled" by authority or consensus at what date did this policy begin?


    4) If liberating fossil fuels is the problem, then planting trees to suck up excess carbon dioxide is nonsense since anthropogenically planted trees (APT) will utlimately die of either fire or rot both of which will liberate the previously assimilated carbon right back into the atmosphere. Yet the "scientists" (scam artists) allow the politicians who fund them to get away with touting this nonsense - no legitiamte science would ever allow this "indulgence buying" to go unchallenged. Equally if carbon dioxide is great tree food then nature will "plant" trees of its own naturally fecundity and not be dependant upon APTs.(Anthropogincally Planted Trees)

    5) If the "average" (will some "scientist" define "average" global temperature in terms that have a precise meaning) temperatures are rising "globaly" then no place on the globe should be exempt. If it's on "average" warmer at point 'A' over the past 100 years it cannot possibly be true that the signal will not be equally felt 100 miles away at point 'B' If there is any significant difference between 'A' and 'B' then it is not "global" but only local. Can point 'A' "globally warm" while point 'B' "globally" cools?

    More points to follow....

    6) The surface 'record': There is none. There exists no instrumentation demonstrably designed to accumulate the earths "surface" record - Can any "scientist" out there tell me what the surface temp was in Green Valley AZ 100 years ago - dont try because it did not exist - so is it part of the surface "record" today?

    7) Greenhouse warming theories are not about surface "records" anyway - its about atmospheric temps which appear to be very stable since they have been systematically collected for this purpose - that shoots the theory so the debate has to focus on a completely flawed surface "record" Why?

    8) If there were a real climate threat this scam industry funded by criminal politicians who promote this hype would alter their own ways and no longer have "carbon club prints" the size of dinosaurs compared with the rest of the world's population of titmouse sized "carbon footsie prints." Why do you jet all over the world by the hundreds of thousands to attend gala conventions held at world class resorts and pleasure spas to condemn the little people in keeping their hearth warm back home where you all just left minus -20 in searh of "global" (read Bali) warming?. I know Bali, Rio, Durban, The Seychelles, etc etc are nice places to go on the public dime when its cold back home - but doesn't this realluy give the big fat lie to your message?

    9) Computer models - GIGO: Modeling behavior is a legitimate method of science but you can't model behavior you can't possibly understand - if you could you could model next months temperature - of course you can't do that so you try to predict what will happen to us after we are all dead - and this brings us right back to the point of religion whose "peer-reviewed" theories compete head-on with yours as to just what happens to us after we all die. This is the only "science" outside of religion that cannot prove any of its assertions. This deligitizes the entire field and this state supported religion would more truthfully term you people "climate priests". No computer model has ever "predicted" climate change and "postdictions" (altering the model to fit past behavior) is nothing less than fraud.

    10) Proxies - are only legitamate if the proxy can be used to confirm data flawlessly time and time again that can be directly collected by some other suitable means. Proxy A can not be used to confirm Proxy B If one can directly correlate proxies with directly collected data then the proxy is only a fantasy relationship that can never be proven. Carbon 14 is a legitimate proxy method since the accuracy and range of carbon 14 dating can be correlated through directly collected historical records. No one should have any cofidence in proxies whose accuracy cannot be demonstrated today.



This one is striking a nerve too - please share!
The scientist named to oversee the research arm of Louisiana’s massive Gulf restoration project left behind a major ethics scandal at the University of Texas, where a panel has blasted his role in authoring a deeply flawed pro-fracking paper without disclosing that he’s been paid $1.5 million over five years as a board member of a drilling company. Charles “Chip” Groat — also a former director of the U.S. Geological Survey — was announced as February as the incoming first president of the non-profit The Water Institute of the Gulf, or TWIG, which has received $1 million in taxpayer funding from Louisiana and additional support from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation. The group’s mission is to provide the scientific underpinnings as officials prepare to spend more than $17 billion to restore the Gulf Coast, with some of the funding expected from settling claims against BP for the 2010 spill.

THE REIKI PRINCIPLES
- Five, Four, or only Three?

Generally, the majority of Reiki practitioners speak of the “Five Principles” 
– and the Japanese term most commonly used to refer to the Principles: 'gokai' [五戒], reflects this. 
(The 'go-' [五] part of the term means: 'five'.)

However, some people have suggested that in reality there are only four Principles.
Other people have suggested that there are only three.

Those who view the Principles as being only four in number claim that what we commonly think of as the third and fourth Principles should be read as one single statement – something along the lines of: 
“Do your work with appreciation”.

Those who consider the Principles to be only three in number claim that, in addition to combining the third and fourth Principles, we should also read what we commonly think of as the first and second Principles as one single statement, along the lines of: 
“Just for today, anger not, worry not.” 

Certainly, the now-ubiquitous Japanese phrasing of the Principles - commonly prefaced with the words: “shōfuku no hihō, nanbyō no reiyaku” ("the secret method of inviting blessings, the spiritual medicine of many illnesses”) could indeed allow for such possibilities.

However, there is another, somewhat differently-phrased Japanese version of the Reiki Principles, dating from 1927, which most certainly does not.

In the inscription on the Memorial Monument which stands to the side of the Usui family tomb in the graveyard at the Saihoji Temple, Tokyo; the Reiki Principles are described in a way which unequivocally identifies them as being five in number:

Relative trends in hospitalizations and mortality among infants by the number of vaccine doses and age, based on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 1990–2010

Abstract

In this study, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, 1990–2010, was investigated; cases that specified either hospitalization or death were identified among 38,801 reports of infants. Based on the types of vaccines reported, the actual number of vaccine doses administered, from 1 to 8, was summed for each case. Linear regression analysis of hospitalization rates as a function of (a) the number of reported vaccine doses and (b) patient age yielded a linear relationship with r 2 = 0.91 and r 2 = 0.95, respectively. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% (107 of 969) for 2 doses to 23.5% (661 of 2817) for 8 doses and decreased linearly from 20.1% (154 of 765) for children aged <0 .1=".1" 0.="0." 10.7="10.7" 801="801" aged="aged" children="children" class="text_exposed_show" for="for" of="of" span="span" to="to" year="year">9 year. The rate ratio (RR) of the mortality rate for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 vaccine doses is 1.5 (95% confidence interval (CI), 1.4–1.7), indicating a statistically significant increase from 3.6% (95% CI, 3.2–3.9%) deaths associated with 1–4 vaccine doses to 5.5% (95% CI, 5.2–5.7%) associated with 5–8 vaccine doses. The male-to-female mortality RR was 1.4 (95% CI, 1.3–1.5). Our findings show a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and deaths. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants might receive. Finding ways to increase vaccine safety should be the highest priority.

What a great question.
The destroyers got too greedy, pushed too hard, and may have succeeded in leavening the dough for their own destruction. All around the planet, people are waking up, rising up, taking to the streets and roads, taking stands, taking action. Solidarity is growing. I am so encouraged by the recent upwelling of action from indigenous people, and if you love this earth, the only home we have, I advise supporting their efforts in every way possible. ( Idle No More is one good place to tune into a lot of the current wave of indigenous efforts.)

The destroyers will try to break our solidarity, try to fragment us, try to set us against each other. Don't fall for it. Always look for the routes to the best, most inclusive solidarity and alliance. Always look for the people who want to build and who love to share. I will live to see the day when enough of us builders and sharers connect up to tip the scales or I will die trying.
