Senators Could Institute Tyranny against Law-Abiding Citizens

The U.S. has Fought Tyrants in the Past, but Now We Have Seen the Enemy, and It Is Occupying Senate

If you thought government agents with guns going into the Gibson Guitar factory because they were crafting them from wood was frightening, but believed that nothing of the sort could happen to you, think again. A bill which will be voted upon in the senate on Monday, November 28th, 2011 has the potential, if passed, to turn the U.S. into something more evil and oppressive than the USSR and Third Reich combined.

This bill is terrifying–and Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain (Republican–Arizona), Carl Levin (Democrat–Michigan) and some other “leaders” are for it! In fact, McCain and Levin wrote the bill.
A U.S. citizen may be labelled a “Domestic Terrorist” and locked-up without trial, just for using cash, and participating in various other innocuous, American Activities.

“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

The ‘Worldwide Indefinite Detention without Charge or Trial’ provision of S.1867, also known as the National Defense Authorization Act, which  shall be up for a vote in the Senate on Monday, Nov. 28th 2011, states that “the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (Republican–South Carolina)

Senator Udall and the ACLU are working to protect Americans from this proposed tyranny. If the bill is passed, there will be no Life, Liberty, and therefore you can forget about The Pursuit of Happiness in a formerly great, benevolent nation.

Safety Tips for Power Outages and High Winds

Red Cross Safety Tips:
Preparing for High Winds 
and Power-Outages 
To Prepare for High Winds:
  • Make trees more wind resistant by removing diseased and damaged limbs.
  • Move or secure lawn furniture, outdoor decorations or ornaments, trashcans, hanging plants and anything else that could be picked up by wind and become a projectile.
  • During the storm, draw blinds and shades over windows. If windows break due to objects blown by wind, the shades should prevent glass from shattering into your home.
To Stay Safe During a Power Outage:
  • Assemble essential supplies, including: flashlight, batteries, portable radio, at least one gallon of water, and a small supply of food. Learn more about making or purchasing a disaster kit here.
  • Only use a flashlight for emergency lighting. Due to the extreme risk of fire, do not use candles during a power outage.
  • Use the phone for emergencies only. Listening to a portable radio can provide the latest information. Do not call 911 for information — only call to report a life-threatening emergency.
  • Do not run a generator inside a home or garage. If you use a generator, connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator. Do not connect a generator to the home electrical system.
  • Turn off electrical equipment you were using when the power went out. Leave one light on so you know when the power comes back on.
  • Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. First, use perishable food from the refrigerator. A closed refrigerator will keep foods cold for about four hours.
  • If you use medication that requires refrigeration, most can be kept inside a closed refrigerator for several hours without a problem. If you are unsure about your medication, check with your physician or pharmacist.
  • Stay focused on the risks of smoke and carbon monoxide. Buy a carbon monoxide detector. They are available at most hardware stores. If you have one, check the battery to make sure it is working. If the alarm sounds, head outside to fresh air. Contact the fire department before you go back inside your home.

Fat and Cholesterol are GOOD for You! by Uffe Ravnskov


Do you know
…what REALLY causes heart disease?
…that heart patients haven’t eaten more saturated fat than other people and stroke patients have eaten less?
…that diabetics may be cured if they replace carbohydrates with saturated fat?
…that people with low cholesterol become just as atherosclerotic as people with high?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women or diabetics?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for old people although by far most heart attacks occur after age 65?
…that old people with high cholesterol live longer than old people with low?
…that the lipoproteins protect us against infectious diseases and probably also against cancer? The author is a scientist himself and has published more than 80 papers and letters in the scientific press critical to the cholesterol campaign, for which he has won two international awards. In his new book, which includes updated and simplified sections from his previous one (The Cholesterol Myths), Ravnskov also presents his own idea about the cause of heart disease, an idea that explains all the findings that do not fit with the present view.
Did you know?…that cholesterol is not a deadly poison, but a substance vital to the cells of all mammals?

…that your body produces three to four times more cholesterol than you eat?

…that the internal production increases when you eat only small amounts of cholesterol and decreases when you eat large amounts?

…that heart patients haven’t eaten more saturated fat than other people?

…that stroke patients have eaten less?

…that people with low cholesterol become just as atherosclerotic as people with high?

…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women?

…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for old people although by far most heart attacks occur after age 65?

…that many of the cholesterol-lowering drugs are dan¬gerous to your health and may shorten your life?

…that the cholesterol campaign creates immense prosperity for researchers, doctors, medical journals, drug producers and the food industry?
