  1. In 2012, a terrible injustice was inflicted upon a friend of mine by an establishment "Liberal" government that I had already been fed up with for years. No establishment "social democrats" or *laughs* "feminists" stoop up with her even though they had everything to gain, both politically and morally, by doing so. That was the end for me. If you principally admire Kucinich, McKinney, and Morales, you're not what I would call right-wing in the sense that anybody in the United States or in the Commonwealth would understand the term. Opposition to the ELN (establishment liberal-neocon) Cabal is not inherently rightist. It's just that we've been fed a pack of lies about the pseudo-progressive Democratic Party going back at least to the days of FDR, a man who perpetuated Jim Crow for 20 years, a man who imprisoned and forfeited the assets of hundreds of thousands of his compatriots based on their ethnicity and on the national origin of their ancestors (sounds like something from out of f**king North Korea), a man who presided over the corporate-sponsored racist moral panics that led to the prohibition of cannabis and the beginning of the War on (some) Drugs (when consumed by visible minorities and working-class Whites), and a man who established the special relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia, a policy which has liquidated the West's moral compass and has caused suffering to billions in the Middle East and the Global South to this day. This last point also calls-out a key underpinning truth behind the 9/11 cover-ups and the superficially incompetent, wasteful, murderous, and irresponsible ways in which the so-called "War on Terror" has been conducted post-9/11, whether by "liberal", "conservative", or "social democratic" factions. It's all bullshit! I'm an unrepentant feminist, for instance, but I know that the accusations of rape against former Alberta Premier John Edward Brownlee and against Julian Assange are bullshit. Brownlee was an anti-establishment progressive from the United Farmers of Alberta supported by farmers, small business, and organized labour (before they were co-opted by the ELNs, although white-hat progressives like Tommy Douglas and Gilles Duceppe have limited the extent of the damage in Canada relative to the United States) brought down by a conspiracy created by the corrupt Liberal Party of Alberta because they could no longer lie to the people and stuff their faces at the trough after he exposed them. The fall-out from the manufactured rape charges pushed Alberta into the arms of religious fundamentalists and right-wing populists and prevented both the United Farmers and the Liberal Party of Alberta from ever again attaining power. Assange's accuser has ties to the CIA and to the Cuban-American Mafia. Moreover, the right-wing governing Alliance that was in power both while the allegations were made and while the Swedes were trying to extradite Assange had f**king Karl Rove on their payroll. By definition, they are thus both evil and non-credible. Even if Assange were a rapist, Sweden has no business extraditing him to the United States and the threat, in my estimation, remains a credible one. Good on Correa. It goes without saying that I was very pleased with the outcome of this year's Ecuadorean elections. :-) As for neocon Al Saud puppet Dhimmi Drumpf, well... #NeverHillary #NeverTrump #NeverTrudeau
  2. No, the lying psychopaths are the phony progressives who have hijacked the Socialist International, beginning when they sold their supporters and those they claimed to represent out by jumping into bed with the Bloodline Families, the Rockefellers, and the Black Nobility to support their countries' entrance into the First World War and then proceeded to have Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht eliminated for daring to strive for real social democracy. It was Militant and the rest of the hard left and the Trots that fought back the hardest when Tony Blair and his buddies hijacked the Labour Party and used it as conduit to strengthen Opus Dei and PNAC/neoconservative control over the United Kingdom. After 2010, the situation in the Labour Party dramatically improved. A grassroots reconquista of the party led to a 2013 exodus from the Socialist International and to Jeremy Corbyn's assuming the leadership 2 years later and then beating-back a neoconservative palace coup in 2016. May is an Al Saud lackey, but Corbyn may be one of the few major G7 party leaders to know better. It was Stalinist and establishment SI "social democratic" factions in Venezuela that participated in the CIA-sponsored 2002 military coup against that country's democratically elected government. Washington and Riyadh retaliated by flooding the market with oil, which caused the commodity's price to crash and, with it, a Venezuelan economy that has been overdependent on oil. While Chavez obviously failed to fix this over-dependence and may have in fact made it worse (an issue that is only tangentially connected to socialist economics), Venezuela had decades of rightist governments prior to 1998 and has suffered similar shocks under COPEI and AD.
  3. Not a Greater Israel supporter but not particularly anti-Zionist either. The Zionists who trouble me are all neoconservative twits like Kissinger, Perle, Wolfowitz, Adelson, J. Lieberman, and Netanyahu. Not a single socialist among the bunch. In truth, I believe that the bad guys interfered in Soviet and German politics to put notorious antisemites Stalin and Hitler in power because Lenin and Trotsky returned the Soviet Union to the Gold Standard in 1924 after a failed 7 year experiment with fiat money. I wish Israel would strive to be more than just a glorified CIA outpost and I wouldn't mind seeing the Likud Party and the Al Sauds put in their place though.

    Earth Sensitive People Report In!

    December 23 and 24, 2016 - I felt as though I was being bombarded with power psychospiritual/extradimensional attacks. The negative energies caused mild but disconcerting physiological symptoms, primarily malaise. Something just felt wrong, and it wasn't a conventional illness.
  5. How very interesting. I was born in 1983 and my life was hobbled by a very severe case of sleep apnea that was never diagnosed till May of 2015. I was found to have very severe sleep apnea with 100 AHI per hour. The threshold for severe is 30 AHI, and so I was getting the equivalent to a few minutes of sleep per night. The article below discusses a British man who had the worst case of the condition ever diagnosed in the UK: he "only" had 90 AHI and was sleeping the equivalent to 14 minutes a night: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2008/feb/08/health.sleepapnoea Days before I went for my sleep study in 2015, I was mugged in broad daylight in an area close to my home with many public cameras and a very low crime rate. My cell phone was stolen, my glasses were smashed, and I ended up with a black eye. AFAIK, the crime remains unresolved. Strangely enough, the very next day I won a tournament on PokerStars after having not played poker in 4 years and was able to purchase another flagship phone with my winnings. Anyways, days after the study, I got a CPAP machine, and all of the problems I've had with cognition, with narcolepsy, with omnipresent fatigue, with stuttering, with solving complex problems and thinking on my feet, with speaking extemporaneously, and with expressing myself in French and in Spanish, all of which had previously been attributed to everything from learning disabilities to high-functioning autism, just disappeared within a week of my getting therapy and I felt divine or as though I have some sort of super-powers because my mind was just spinning with ideas like never before and my cognition was off the charges compared to what it had ever been in the past. Unfortunately, in spite of my never previously having had any mental health problems, by the end of May of 2015, I was barely sleeping (due to my newfound manic energy), I was alternating between extreme euphoria and extreme paranoia, and I went into acute manic psychosis and lost touch with reality, leaning to weeks of hospitalization. The first night that I was at the hospital, I heard an omnipresent demonic voice, something like a cross between Satan and Lord Voldemort, unceasingly repeat, in intervals 1 to 2 seconds, the name of a woman from my adolescence who would go on to become my girlfriend (there's another intertwining story hear that began in 2012 as well as a lot of weird stories and coincidences surrounding that woman and our relationship, both good and bad, but it's incidental to my main point) for a few months in late 2016 and early 2017. I also saw hallucinations of the second coming of Jesus Christ from outside of my hospital room. I had not never heard voices or seen hallucinations before, not on alcohol, not on cannabis, not on Salvia divinorum, not on psilocybin, and it's never happened since. Anyways, I was not given a specific diagnosis at the time and was put on moderate doses of Seroquil, risperidone, and lorazepam (Ativan) that I continued even after my hospitalization due to the severity of my episode. I could not stay awake with Seroquil, which made it professionally unviable, and it was quickly replaced with lithium, which I found odd because Seroquil is an atypical antipsychotic with strong sedative effects whereas lithium is a mood stabilizer that is not especially sedating, AFAIK. The crash from the manic episode and the side-effects of the med left me cognitively weak, emotionally numb, excruciatingly bored even with stuff that I loved, barely able to take care of myself or get out of bed, and with a sex drive so damaged that I could not have an erection or an orgasm for 6 months. Meanwhile, I discovered the Mandela Effect in the summer of 2015, which when coupled with my other problems caused me to believe that the mugging that past May had killed me and sent me to Hell (a condition known as Cotard's Delusion) and to develop strong delusions of reference. Obviously, I fell into severe depression and was consequently in the hospital again for 3 weeks in October and November of 2015. I was given a diagnosis of Bipolar I and was switched from risperidone to lurasidone (which didn't help) and assigned to an outpatient program consisting of group therapy (which helped somewhat, especially after I decided to stop taking pharmaceuticals in June of 2016) and a new psychiatrist (who was considerably better than my previous one, but whom I've since stopped seeing shortly after my completion of the group therapy program last November). By June of 2016, the depression and other problems were not going away and I did some research on Google Scholar, discovering in medical literature that managing severe cases of sleep apnea that had gone unmanaged for an extended period of time can result in episodes of manic psychosis. Armed with this in information, I decided to go against the advice of most of my family members, my psychiatrist, and the rest of my program's interdisciplinary care team and stop taking pharmaceuticals altogether. I gradually started feeling better, and in mid-August, I had a wonderful vacation with my best friend. By the end of October, my depression was gone, my cognition was close to what it was right after my having started CPAP in May of 2015 (only with no paranoia and only mild hypomania), my sex drive was back to what it had been before I had started taking meds, I dressed up for Halloween for the first time in 20 years and won first prize in my office's costume contest, and I was begin to lose weight due to dramatic reductions in sugar, alcohol, and caloric consumption. There have been other challenges since then, particularly surrounding my relationship with my now-ex-girlfriend (see the bolded text above) and my post-Mandela Effect rejection of conventional atheism (I have a foot in both the Alien Earth and the heterodox Judeo-Christianity camps) and propensity for heterodox politics and left-wing conspiracy theories (i.e. the Bush Administration killed Paul Wellstone, the Clintons, Bushes, and Trumps are playing for the same neoconservative deep state cabal, the Americans and the Saudis intentionally caused the price of oil the crash for geopolitical reasons) but I feel as though a genie has been uncorked in me that will never be put back in the bottle. Obviously, though, I still have unresolved concerns surrounding the Mandela Effect and its causes and consequences, the unsolved mugging and subsequent poker win and their proximity to my sleep study, my experiences at the two hospitals and with the psychiatric treatment I received (I firmly reject Bipolar 1 and consider my condition to have been a consequence of my CPAP therapy and the subsequent treatment I received for my acute psychosis), some shit surrounding my ex and our relationship, and a couple of things I've not gone into here, but I'm sure that if I can my eyes, ears, heart, and mind opened, I'll find the answers if and when they are meant to be found. Oh yes, and a few months before my sleep study, a former colleague from a previous employer, a devout Christian and a chronic cannabis user who was working for the Salvation Army at the time, responded to my messaging him on Facebook with a message along the lines of "Watch for the Lion and the Eagle. Beware the Serpent and the Medusa". It may have been a dream, and we've not spoken since, but it's odd.

    What's up with this Schumann Chart?

    I was very cranky, mean, and out-of-sorts last night after work. Moreso than usual at the end of a work day. This morning I felt fine. hmm. I also felt strong psychospiritual forces attacking me on December 23 and 24, to the point that there was physical discomfort and malaise. I was fine by late evening on the 24th though.
  8. So is Trump. The Bushes, the Clintons, and the Trumps are all good friends, as are Soros and the Koch Brothers. They're all more interested in serving Bibi and King Salman than they are their compatriots.

    drinking......

    I wish cannabis could take the edge off for me the way booze does. No calories or sugar.
  10. Thanks. I'm not sure I'll be that welcomed. I'm more of an Evo Morales-Julian Assange-Jesse Ventura than an Alex Jones guy.
  11. You tell me. I'm a white-collar professional with one of my country's fastest-growing firms. I support privatizing the liquor stores where I live. I say infrastructure in the hands of the state, consumer goods and services in the hands of the private sector.
  12. I consider myself a progressive and a left-wing populist with ideas that take elements from Rawlsian liberalism, social democracy, intersectional feminism, anarcho-capitalism, and pirate politics. And yet within the Canadian lefts, I mostly see people who are "go-along-to-get-along" with the corrupt Liberal Party establishment, people who can't look past Donald Trump and Rob Ford (both shit stains on the underwear of the human race, admittedly) when they hear the word "populism", and refuse to consider CIA and deep state conspiracies. I feel like nobody prominent within the "mainstream" lefts seem to get "it" right save for Bolivian President Evo Morales and former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura, admittedly two men who are otherwise very different both philosophically and culturally. Meanwhile, so-called "liberals" and "social democrats" are often just as quick to give the Al-Saud Crime Family a free pass as are right-wingers, UK Labour's grassroots allowed Opus Dei (I'm Catholic, but I am relatively irreligious and I am not socially conservative) and the neoconservative PNACers (ie the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Clinton creeps) to hijack their party for years via fifth columnists such as Tony Blair and Ruth Kelly, "social democratic" and Stalinist factions in Venezuela assisted the CIA and the corporate lamestream media in their failed 2002 attempt to depose the country's democratically-elected government, Canada's NDP elects a leader that had previously been regarded as being on the right-wing fringe of the neoliberal Parti Libéral du Québec, and we've wasted trillions of dollars and millions of civilian and military lives destabilizing secular Arab regimes that, good or bad, had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, thus concentrating regional power in the Middle East in the far-right clerical establishments running Riyadh, Ankara, and Tehran, creating power vacuums that have been filled by Daesh ("ISIS"), and manufacturing waves of otherwise-unneeded refugee crises in Europe, the Americas, and Oceania. A majority of Iranians are either liberal or socialist in their world view and have been for decades, and yet they are somehow unable to dislodge the extremist clerical establishment that has provided us with an incredible amount of fear porn from the wackos running Likud and the GOP. It's obvious to me that the deep state has murdered or otherwise-silenced real opposition leaders such as Jacob Arbenz, Mohammed Mossadegh, Sukarno, Patrice Lumumba, Martin Luther King Jr, Salvador Allende, Oscar Romero, and Paul Wellstone. Sometimes it feels as though even having controlled opposition within our political class is a luxury at this point. There is also reason to suspect that the cancers that killed Hugo Chavez (2013) and Jack Layton (2011) at around the same time that they infected other progressive leaders in the Americas were orchestrated from Washington, but I don't think it's something that can be proven. Everyone just loves Franklin Roosevelt, who seems to have been beatified by many American progressives, but to me he was a miserable excuse of a bigot who allied with White supremacists and perpetuated Jim Crow when he had a mandate to liberate Dixie from the Bourbon reactionaries, he worked with corporate interests to create racist moral panics among the ignorant that led to the idiotic outlawing of cannabis and hemp (But hey, he ended Prohibition. It's all good!), he interned and seized the assets of hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans based solely on their ethnicity and on the national origin of their ancestors, and he established the special relationship between Washington and the Al-Saud Wahhabi Mafia that has inflicted untold suffering upon hundreds of millions in the Middle East and the Global South, particularly women, religious minorities, and those not born into money and privilege. And rather than getting any traction out of these arguments, the reaction that I seem to get from everyone is to say my prayers, take my vitamins, and smile, wave, and just play dumb for corrupt, duplicitous losers such as Justin Trudeau and Hillary Clinton. I get thrown in with the actual rubes, that is the anti-vaxxers, the Holocaust deniers, the gun nuts, and the far-right militias, and I have no idea how to fire a gun more powerful than a f**king Super Soaker. At "worst", I'm convinced of the Mandela Effect and the existence of extraterrestrials on Earth. Am I the crazy one here, or are my fellow "progressives" just blind, deaf, and willfully ignorant to the reality around us?
  13. A lot of people seem nervous about this eclipse.
