Survive to Thrive Amidst the 6th Great Extinction Event in Planetary History

A Hopi Elder Speaks:

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.  And there are things to be considered . . .

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!”

“There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.

“Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.  At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

If You Do Not Change Direction You Will End Up Where You Are Heading ~ Lao Tzu

There can be no doubt we are in the 6th Great Extinction on Planet Earth. We are losing over 200 species a day!  here  which is nearly 70,000 peryear, fish are beaching themselves in mass suicides regularly due to acidic seas and naval ops as the Africantimes headlines read ‘Record Elephant Deaths due to Thirst for Ivory.’ here. 93% of fish are going extinct and the pumps pump radioactive fallout into the Pacific Oceans from nuclear Fukishima on a daily basis.

Actions are being implemented globally each and every day to insure that every last resource that can be convertible to short term material profit will be done so using ever more advanced technological efficiencies and complicity regulatory approval solely for the wealth of the few at the expense of all else.  “Hey got the new 200 species-extinction-a-day Ap yet?”

We have entered into a major food, fish and water crisis in the U.S..  Food prices jumped 9% in January alone and 15% in 2012 whereas the USDA had predicted a 4-5% increase for all of 2013!  Food scarcity (scares in the city?) are a very real concern in the country going forward.

Globally we are witnessing accelerated depletion of food groups through severe, uncertain volatile weather, droughts putting farmers out of business, monopolized food supplies insuring a one GMO fits all policy and the very beginnings of major league fracking across the country trading fuel for cars at the expense of our own food and health of our people and our childrens lands.

The water wars and fracking are being implemented directly against our country’s largest source of domestic food, produce and critical water supply in the worlds 8th largest economy; California. In the 20th century CA agriculture could produce enough food to feed this country. Then, only last decade, it could not grow enough food to feed just all Californians.  Now Fracking and water diverting from farmlands is accelerating the ability to maintain these levels of production while leaving a scorched earth when all is sucked, sold and dried…

This comes at the exact same time the Obama Administration is to be cutting the national food stamp program which just hit a record high this week of those in need here.  Thank you Michele Obama and Agenda 21.  Also, there are strong signs that our Dictator in Residence will be taking control of the Internet sometime soon, as early a next week here directly after he bypassed Congress today and signed a new Cyber security bill that Congress failed twice to approve. here

There are also major signs of a well advertised, well planned false flag cyber attack on national banking system to steal the wealth of all, since in practice they already have done so through MF Global and other financial heists recently, so take at least some of your money out of the banks, you can afford to miss the .003% interest they ‘offer’ to try and protect your assets.

The bankster’s have gamed the system, have tested the waters by stealing from their customers, some professional commodity traders at that,  and have gotten away with serious white collar crimes so far. They are not stopping here. They believe they have us checkmated as to their new world order agenda. If you have any doubts please see here

Home prices are artificially, very, very temporarily grossly inflated. If your thinking of selling you house…SELL IT NOW. This is your 2nd chance to get out when you can.  Think if you want to stay in your home for the next 5-10 years.

There are no first time buyers getting any loans to start the buying or people ‘trading up’ into more expensive homes, it is an artificial bubble created to support home prices temporarily.  All purchased homes now are with cash only or through investment groups and through the QE3 government repurchase of mortgages to the tune of $40 Billion per month, when the private Federal Reserve arbitrarily decides to halt these buybacks, look out below as the 2008 lows will be taken out rather quickly and the U.S. Government with their bankster cronies will become the biggest slumlords in Amerika.

Furthermore, the government is planning to tax all sales of homes through new ‘energy audits’ as well as come into your homes to see if any mold or toxicity exist, which we will have to pay for. This will put further difficulties in selling your home. This is not only a gross intrusion on our rights to be left the hell alone, but another tax we all will be paying and paying for on top of all the other taxes planned for you and me, such as:
…(Obamacare here, sales and income tax increases here, Calfire tax here, Financial transaction and Carbon footprint taxes here, Violence Liability Insurance (Gun tax) here , etc.)  It’s baked in the cake and happening real time to all.

The Occupy Movement came and went.  And though the first spark from Tunisia has erupted once again, the citizens of this country seem to not be willing to confront the power and challenge the status quo in any meaningful way. Business as usual seems to be the default while collapse is everywhere one chooses to look yet our government seems to have other plans for its people as live military drills are being conducted openlyin many cities across the country using live gunfire (firing blanks) and Blackhawk helicopters.  It was only several years ago that Bush jr. gutted the Posse Comitatus Act here, which forbade using militray on our homeland, now they are ‘practicing’.

With new Orwellian laws in place now to extinguish any freedom we have enjoyed and no real alternative opposition of size and consequence it would appear to be sane to take refuge where one can and shelter from the coming series of shit storms ahead of us all.  Getting a self reliant, self sufficient lifestyle as best you can to get through some very difficult times ahead may make all the difference if you don’t have to leave your homes for a few days or weeks.
Getting ‘prepped’, building community around you, getting to know your neighbors,  joining a CSA, starting a garden, etc. are all good ways to help mitigate the changes we all will be facing for quite some time.

If I new it was my last day I would still go out and plant a tree

We all must remember that we are all chosen for these incredible times to be shaken and awakened, alerted and alarmed to our higher potential and destiny’s.  As you can see from the first couple of disturbing articles below their is the concentrated effort to realign the global society into a new consumerism in Asia so that ‘they; can play the debt game on an even larger ‘Upwardly Mobile Society’ while the U.S becomes/is now a very, very large Banana Republic that makes little, has little to offer the world other than military force dictated from very centralized power, and is controlled only through the ignorance of the people and the military enforcement through their media induced psyop fear tactics.

 Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing. ~ Mother Teresa

The great news is that the American spirit is rising again. People are waking up and creating, creating creating in localized communities and towns. Those that wish to swim upstream against the rough currents, to spawn new visions of much better ways, must go mightily where few wish to go right now.  As more understand and ‘get it’ we will gain strength to change but it will take awhile, maybe a lifetime or two. It is time to let go of the shore and swim with the others who have freed themselves and seek self reliance and independence.

To ignore all that is happening is to be ignorant, to not care is to be cold blooded and to not see is to be blind as to our world today and the future trends.

The Age of Only About Me is dead. Long live the Age of All About Me.

Remember, even a dead fish can always go with the flow yet every outcome is always uncertain as long as Man and Woman have free will and love as their guiding star!



The Greek language uses three words for love. It talks about eros. Eros is a sort of aesthetic love. It has come to us to be a sort of romantic love and it stands with all of its beauty. But when we speak of loving those who oppose us we’re not talking about eros. The Greek language talks about philia and this is a sort of reciprocal love between personal friends. This is a vital, valuable love. But when we talk of loving those who oppose you and those who seek to defeat you we are not talking about eros or philia. The Greek language comes out with another word and it is agape. Agape is understanding, creative, redemptive good will for all men. Biblical theologians would say it is the love of God working in the minds of men. It is an overflowing love which seeks nothing in return. And when you come to love on this level you begin to love men not because they are likeable, not because they do things that attract us, but because God loves them and here we love the person who does the evil deed while hating the deed that the person does. It is the type of love that stands at the center of the movement that we are trying to carry on in the Southland—agape.  MLK

Must Here Speech

THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK, JAMES WOLFENSOHN, makes stunning confessions as he addresses graduate students at Stanford University. He reveals the inside hand of World Domination from past, to the present and into the future.  This speech was made January 11th, 2010. The Next 19 minutes may open your mind as to the deliberate, calculated designs for a ‘One World Order’.

He tells the Grad Students what is coming next…a ‘Tetctonic Shift’ in wealth from the West to the East. it is his former institution that is directing and channeling these changes.  China and third world countries are to become the new ‘consumer’ society (so they can use leveraged debt) and the West is to become the slave manufacturing base….all in the next few decades.

This is why we all must realize that the U.S. is ‘in play’ as to be a major resource supplier now of raw goods and materials to those ‘on the way up’.  Our national parks, our farm lands and our water are being extracted so blatantly and destructively because we are now having done to us what we have done to so many other nations.

It is critical to understand that the powers that should not be have no alliance to any race, country or nation, only to their own greed, power and wealth accumulations.

Diamond heart — Stock Photo #4726830

A Diamond is associated with pure love. It is the hardest most pure light refracting mineral on Earth.  It is created from coal like carbon, flammable and black. To achieve its diamondhood it must be hardened under intense heat and tension in the bowels of the Earth over long, vast periods of time.

We are all carbon beings with diamond-like potentiality yet to reach our highest potential all must first endure the intense heat and pressure.  Never forgetting whence we came yet consciously knowing that which our highest selves are capable of achieving in this lifetime. 


Cassandra’s Dilemma:

In Greek Mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Her beauty was so extraordinary that Apollo fell in love with her, and as a gift to show his devotion, he granted her the ability to know the future. But when she refused his love, he then cursed her by making it so that no one would ever believe her predictions. Cassandra had perfect knowledge of the future (she had watch her hometown Troy be sacked and her parents murdered) and yet nobody would ever believe her when she spoke.

With each passing day, even more Americans lose faith in the system and begin prepping.  If you are one of those new preppers, there are actually dozens of great websites out there on the Internet where you can get an education about prepping for free.  The list of websites and blogs that I have compiled below contains more articles and resources than you could ever possibly need.  Hopefully many of you will find this list to be extremely helpful.

Radical Food Price Increases From Here On Out

(these rapid price increase are occurring  before the information below on fracking plans for CA where vast amounts of water are being taken from farms to feed the extraction machines for our cars.)

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported today that January agricultural product prices received by farmers rose 9% in January compared with December prices. Prices were 15% higher than in January 2012. The prices paid index (i.e., the cost of producing the crops) rose 1.4% above the December index and is up 5.2% compared with January 2012.

Producers received higher prices for lettuce, cattle and corn, and lower prices for milk, eggs and wheat. Costs rose for rent, nitrogen fertilizer and other services, while falling for diesel fuel, interest and mixed fertilizer.

Food prices paid by consumers will be going up, due in part to continued drought conditions in some of the country’s most productive farmland and due in part rising costs. The rising farm price index does not predict that inflation will zoom up, but it is one indicator that consumers will be squeezed again to decide whether to buy something to eat or that new electronic gizmo. Food usually wins, and the effect on the economy is (usually temporarily) not good.


If we are immersed only in bright white light or in a room of total darkness, we cannot see.  Only through the conflicting duality of light and darkness are we able to live on and in this human dimension.

Meanwhile, our “Leaders” Real Agenda’s

“Less and Less Relevant”,  F*%@ YOU, USDA Dept. Head, Mr. Tom Vilsack!!! (former attorney for Monsanto)

Last week Tom Vilsack, secretary of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), speaking at a forum sponsored by Farm Journal, claimed that rural America has become “less and less relevant.” Vilsack went on to say that “It’s time for us to have an adult conversation with folks in rural America. It’s time for a different thought process here, in my view.”

Vilsack asserts that with more and more Americans moving into urbanized city-centers (Agenda 21), the farming communities in rural areas are not necessary in order to supply the US with food and other necessities. He believes that these areas of land would be better served without having to direct energy and resources to them. He is an advocate for Monsanto and genetically modified foods which would explain why Vilsack is against rural America and farming communities.

In fact, Vilsack stated that a farming policy that facilitated the reality of “rural America with a shrinking population is becoming less and less relevant to the politics of this country, and we had better recognize that and we better begin to reverse it.”


……and Their Incredibly Poor Forecasts Around Food Prices

While Just Last Month USDA Predicted Food Price Increase of 4% FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR OF 2013

In 2013, it will pay to be a vegetarian.

From hamburgers to bacon, most of Americans’ favorite meat products are expected to cost between 3% and 4% more this year, according to a December 2012 forecast by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.The higher meat prices are linked to the historic drought that struck much of America’s farmlands this year, causing the price of corn — a common ingredient in animal feed — to skyrocket.

Michelle Obama ~ Starving the Poor, Needy and Hungry to Feed the Young Malnourished and Obese

(….Passed: December 2, 2010…this was preplanned to cut food stamps 3 years ago. 54 million are on food stamps in this country (14%), half are children and they must live on $3/day.  This is a huge national safety net being cut away beginning this year and more cuts planned for the years ahead.)

Michelle Obama lobbied for the bill as a way to combat obesity and hunger. About half of the $4.5 billion cost is financed by a cut in food stamps starting in several years(2013). Mrs. Obama said she was thrilled by passage of what she described as a groundbreaking piece of legislation.

“This provision would require some schools to raise their lunch prices,” the Congressional Budget Office said.

Some liberal House Democrats and advocates for the poor railed against the bill in September, saying it was wrong to pay for the expansion of child nutrition programs by cutting money for food stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

The 6th Great Extinction aka Living in the Age of the Really, Really Stupid
and mega whorporations will ‘maximize shareholder profit value’ right until the very end, where their profits are the greatest!
Six major extinction events are chronicled in Earth’s geologic history. These events have occurred over the past 450 million years and typically span periods of tens of thousands of years. We are currently living through the Sixth Great Extinction. Never before has a major extinction event been caused by a single species, but this one is driven almost exclusively by human actions. It is likely that we will lose half of all plants, animals and birds on our planet by the year 2100.

(The really big takeaway is that we are talking about planetary life extinction event occurring most likely, if not entirely Man Made and on a global scale)


The Mayan civilization flourished in South America for hundreds of years and built a society similar in technological ability and city building prowess to the ancient Egyptions, with their Pyramid like Zygaruts jutting out of dense jungle, large city developments and extensive farming.  Unfortunately, the Mayans did not adequately respond to seasonal changes in crop production nor did they effectively manage their environment.  Continued over defforrestation and the resulting degradation of soils through over farming of the same fields without crop rotation led the Mayans to a massive collapse of their food production, leading to famine, disease, and in a matter of just a few years, total destruction of their civilization.
If they had paid attention the signs would have been there, rainwater washing away over exposed soils, decreasing crop production as soil quaility diminished, raising disease levels as populations become too concentrated.

Easter Island

Unfortunately, yet again, the Easter Island civilization perished almost over night.  Defforestation is seen as the root cause, with the removal of the tree cover the soil on Easter Island became exposed to weatherization and degraded to a point in which crops could not adequately grow and feed their population – famine would come, then disease, then the mass die-out.   Yet again the information would have been there to see, steadily declining tree coverage, rains washing away the soils, crop production decreasing with each year as the soil weathered and washed away.–

In the Antartic circle we take deep core samples of the packed ice, we sample the chemical make up of air bubbles trapped in this ice and can tell the make up of the atmosphere 50 years ago, 100 years ago, 1000 years ago, 10,000 years ago and so on.   In Space we have the ISS and hundreds of other satellites measuring global temperatures, forest density, atmospheric gases.   On land we have cameras watching glacier levels, weather stations recording snowfall, wind, rain, temperature.    Surely we have been watching the data, we have been collecting the data, so surely, obviously, we aren’t as stupid as the Mayans and Easter Islanders right ?

Umm, actually yes we are.   A majority of Americans still disbelieve climate change is real and man made; over 60% in fact, even though 99% of scientists in this field agree fully with the findings of the major research instituations, and the United Nations, that this is very much real, very dangerous, and needing urgent attention.

We are adopting the same patterns as the Mayans and Easter Islanders, assuming everything will be alright, writing off any evidence to the contrary as a blip, shooting the messenger when we don’t like the reality we are being told of…

(CNN) — Residents of large swaths of central and Southern California and Arizona shivered Saturday as plummeting temperatures prompted freeze warnings. In Atlanta, meanwhile, shorts-wearing residents basked in the balmy weather as it and two other major Georgia cities set record highs for this date.

The weird weekend weather had temperatures as much as 30 degrees below normal in parts of the West and 30 degrees above normal in the East, said CNN meteorologist Jenny Harrison.


So How Is Geoengineering Effecting The “Forecast” Maps And The Weather?

Here is the important consideration between these maps, in general, the further above average the temperatures are, the more precipitation there will be. The lower the temps, the less precipitation there will be. At first glance this could seem straight forward enough. After all, the atmosphere does hold 7% more moisture for every degree of temperature rise, but that is not the full story any longer. The atmosphere is being completely saturated with toxic, reflective, desiccating geoengineering particulates, and the jet stream increasingly appears to be consistently manipulated with ionosphere heater installations. (See HAARP manipulates jet stream)

The more the geoengineers spray to try and cool down the temperatures, the less it will rain, period. (The science is clear on this. Google “geoengineering reduces rainfall” , there are simply too many studies on this to link only one.) Add “artificial ice nucleation” to the spray mix and the precipitation appears to go down still further. “Artificial ice nucleation” is a chemical process that can produce colder weather/cloud temperatures and snow out of what should have been a rain storm at well above freezing temperatures. If the temps are already cold enough for snow, this same process can lower the temperatures even further, but at a cost, not much snow compared to historical norms.

There are, of course, exceptions to this when a very moisture laden storm system is ice nucleated, but the “snow” from such system “conversions” is “heavy wet snow”. This recent term coined by the Weather Channel describes the concrete-like “snow” that sticks like glue to trees and causes utter decimation to the forests. Broken and tipped over trees are everywhere in the Pacific Northwest from just such an “ice nucleated” storm in late December. The massive amount of heavy metals in these snow storms, tested at the state certified lab, proves our storms are being “seeded”. This “seeding” of artificial ice nucleating agents is accomplished by spray disbursement into the clouds of a weather system by jet aircraft.

USAF Acknowledges Use of Geoengineering over United States

GeoEngineering Watch ~ Great Overall information



Why Fracking is So Bad

There are 830,000 oil and gas wells across the US, 90% of which are being fracked. Up to 8 million gallons of water and 40,000 gallons of chemicals (as many as 300 combilned chemicals) are used each time a well is fracked. Individual wells can be fracked as many as 10 times.

When the concrete barriers crack, methane gas and toxic chemicals leach into groundwater. Methane concentrations are 17x higher in drinking-water wells near fracturing sites. Only 30-50% of the toxic fluid is recovered, the rest is simply left underground. Fracking is now also believed to cause earthquakes.

One critical takeaway is that the United States, and all her resources are all in play to be extracted and sold off abroad for their benefits China is to become the new consumer, for the global wealthy elite, who hold no loyalty to any one country and will gladly destroy this country for ‘maximized shareholder wealth’.

Two. Documentation is well founded now that fracking is causing earthquakes. They are actively Fracking right over some of the biggest Earthquake fault lines in CA!  Directly vertical to where CA has two of its major nuclear power plants located.

Really, Really Frack’d Up ~ CA to become the ‘Saudi Arabia’ of Fracked Oil
(more on fracking and its destructive nature further down)

California is sitting on a massive amount of shale oil and could become the next oil boom state. But only if the industry can get the stuff out of the ground without upsetting the state’s powerful environmental lobby.

Running from Los Angeles to San Francisco, California’s Monterey Shale is thought to contain more oil than North Dakota’s Bakken and Texas’s Eagle Ford — both scenes of an oil boom that’s created thousands of jobs and boosted U.S. oil production to the highest rate in over a decade.

In fact, the Monterey is thought to hold over 400 billion barrels of oil, according to IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates. That’s nearly half the conventional oil in all of Saudi Arabia. The United States consumes about 19 million barrels of oil a day.

“Four hundred billion barrels, that doesn’t escape anyone in this businesses,” said Stephen Trammel, energy research director at IHS.


Frak’d Up ~ Unhealthy Consequences for Those ‘In the Zone’

Fracking-related house explosions, suicides, miscarriages and baby deaths in Faulkner County have been hidden, according to locals who met with human rights reporter Deborah Dupré in Greenbrier last week on her Vampire of Macondo national book tour.

“I’ve had the rashes, the nosebleeds, my tongue has bled shortly after the fracking process began on those wells,” said Dirk Deturk at his home in Greenbrier where he resides with his wife, Eva. Dirk chairs Faulkner County Concerned Citizens Advisory Group (CCAG), formed to protect locals, mainly from fossil fuel industry’s abuses through hydro-fracking Fayetteville Shale.

“We’re surrounded by 14 wells within two miles. Within a thousand feet, there are six of them,” Dirk said, later describing alarming numbers of related suicides, miscarriages, babies dying and house explosions. During Vampire of Macondo book signings on Jan. 29 and 30, other CCAG members added to the list of local fracking industry extreme rights abuses against residents and workers: abnormal bleeding, passing out, insomnia, respiratory and neurological diseases, rashes and boils, and over 1400 earthquakes.


People reach out to take fruits and vegetables distributed for free by farmers during a protest against high production costs outside the Agriculture Ministry in Athens

(Pictured: February 6, 2013: Greeks reach out to take fruits and vegetables distributed for free by farmers. Over 100,000 pounds of food was not enough to feed everyone.)

Global Food Crisis Spreading

Once a bastion of European success and center of tourism, the country of Greece has become the harbinger of things to come for the rest of the world’s developed nations. Not long ago Greeks were enjoying high paid salaries, early retirements, excess cash, and seemingly never ending economic growth.

Today, just a short time after a financial collapse that rocked global financial markets, Europe’s darling has turned into a frightening example of what happens when governments and their people take on more debt than they can ever hope to repay.

The end result is a warning to the rest of us.


Got Food and Healthy, Clean Water?

With a finite supply of water, Sacramento may have to choose between expanding food production or fracking wells and oil and natural gas production. Either option will likely lead to increases in food or energy costs for consumers.

Out-of-state, (primarily Texas-headquartered) energy companies with deep pockets from record profits and the strongest lobby in Sacramento are anxious to extract as much severance tax-free California oil from the ground as quickly as possible.

Anticipating that a Democratic two-thirds majority could finally mean an end to their decades long free ride they spent so much political action money achieving, not just Exxon/Mobil, but Texaco, Chevron and British Petroleum are all outbidding agricultural water interests by a 3-to-1 margin.

For California farmers, the loss of hundreds of thousands of acre feet of water from the districts means an increase in rates and fewer acre feet allotments intended for new groves of pistachios and almonds, vineyards of grapes and fields of water-intensive alfalfa, tomatoes and corn, that likely will be planted either without increases in acreage or an increase in fallowed fields this year.

According to state ag business analysts, the energy companies’ water grab will likely translate to higher food prices for consumers and increased cost to the production of bio fuels like ethanol that rely on the availability of cheap and abundant corn harvests.

Agriculture water districts from Modesto to Maricopa are reportedly alarmed by the purchasing power of energy companies who are buying up as much water as they can with financial resources traditional agriculture water districts can’t match – as much as three times the rate water districts expected to pay.

Because California’s mineral rights are sold separately from land rights, environmentalists say the dye is cast for the contamination of groundwater supplies and fertile farmland as those who own the oil deposit rights, primarily out-of-state oil interests, have little regard for what happens to the land above or water below.

Financial gain from extraction of California’s remaining oil reserves is too great right now while destruction of the water and land has no financial cost to mineral rights owners.

In Kern County, still the largest oil producing county in California, fracking wells have already consumed 2.8 trillion gallons of potable drinking water from the aqueduct. This industrial use of the water was never envisioned or allotted for by the State’s Department of Water Resources or State Water Project.

Anti-fracking groups have seized upon the water use and its subsequent contamination (it takes up to 8 barrels of water to produce 1 barrel of oil – California currently produces about 240 million barrels of oil annually) to point out that in the extinct Cedar forests of Lebanon or the lost tropical jungle of Easter Island, governments who fail to recognize environmental mistakes too late can embark on irreversible paths that are only beneficial short-term.


Ocean of Fish Are Almost Extinct

A conservation group is urging people to consume responsibly after releasing a report that found that more than 40 species of fish found in the Mediterranean – including bluefin tuna and sea bass – could disappear in the next few years!

According to a study released this week for the International Union for Conservation of Nature, almost half of the species of sharks and rays and 12 species of bony fish in the Mediterranean Sea are threatened with extinction due to overfishing, marine habitat degradation and pollution.

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, described as the first of its kind for an entire sea, singled out commercial species like bluefin tuna, dusky grouper, sea bass and hake as threatened or near threatened with extinction at the regional level due to overfishing.

Demand for bluefin tuna has skyrocketed along with the popularity of sushi around the world, as bluefin is considered the best tasting tuna. In Japanese restaurants, bluefin tuna is usually distinguished as maguro or toro.



Real Estate markets are being artificially propped up for the very short term.  Banks are holding millions in unforeclosed houses, our wonderful government with QEIII is buying back $40 billion dollars in mortgages each and every month now and nearly every single sale of homes now is purchased with cash or with venture capital private money… No one I know is able to borrow at all to buy a home these days, even with a great credit score.

Mold? Leaky Roof? Obama Administration Says All Americans Must Have ‘Healthy Housing’

February 8, 2013

lead paintPeeling lead paint is one of the hazards the Obama’s administration’s new “Advancing Healthy Homes” initiative seeks to remedy. (AP Photo)

( – Under the broad banner of “health,” the federal government not only is telling Americans what to eat, it’s also telling us to make our homes safer. This week, the Obama administration released a “bold new vision for addressing the nation’s health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home.”

The project has a name: “Advancing Healthy Housing: A Strategy for Action.”  (AHHA!!!)

The federal partners pushing healthy housing include the White House Council on Environmental Quality, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Surgeon General, and Energy Department.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan says the federal government must do “everything we can to ensure that individuals and families have a healthy place to call home.” He said the strategy “will help the federal government unify action (on) controlling and preventing major housing-related exposures and hazards.”

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said the government now has a “specific plan for action to address radon and other preventable hazards found in homes across the country.” The strategy, she added, “is a critical step” toward ensuring that “Americans in all communities have healthy places to live, work and play.”


Energy Audits coming soon to Sell your Home

Thinking about selling your house? A look at H.R. 2454 (Cap and trade bill)

Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won’t be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this Act.

H.R. 2454, the “Cap & Trade” bill passed by the House of Representatives, if also passed by the Senate, will be the largest tax increase any of us has ever experienced. The Congressional Budget Office (supposedly non-partisan) estimates that in just a few years the average cost to every family of four will be $6,800 per year. No one is excluded. However, once the lower classes feel the pinch in their wallets, you can be sure these voters get a tax refund (even if they pay no taxes at all) to offset this new cost. Thus, you Mr. and Mrs. Middle Class America will have to pay even more since additional tax dollars will be needed to bail out everyone else.

But wait. This awful bill (that no one in Congress has actually read) has many more surprises in it.

Probably the worst one is this: A year from now you won’t be able to sell your house.

Yes, you read that right. The caveat is (there always is a caveat) that if you have enough money to make required major upgrades to your home, then you can sell it. But, if not, then forget it. Even pre-fabricated homes (“mobile homes”) are included.

The ONLY New Homebuyers ~ Big Private Equity Funds

Fed buying back $40 Billion a month in Mortgages

Americans Tapping Home Equity Again



Getting some or all your Money out of the banks (and losing the .02% interest..aghhhh) is a very good idea now.  it will not be long before their is a ‘Cyber-attack’ on the banking system and the people’s money will have just ‘disappeared’

(this might explain the government buying 1.6 million rounds of ammo and telling everyone else they must disarm!!)

Thanks to the ruling on Sentinel Management Group (SMG) in August of 2012, when a customer deposits money into a bank, the bank essentially issues a promise to have those funds available when the customer returns to withdraw the deposited amount. When the same customer withdraws funds from their account (whether checking or savings) the customer assumes that the bank has enough funds to cover their withdrawal; including the presumption that their monies are separate from the bank’s assets.

Now, those funds are up for grabs by the bank at their discretion without explanation to the customer – nor is the bank obligated to recoup the customer should they “lose” those funds due to bad loans, bankruptcy or stock market loss.

The ruling on SMG has given the banking industry the legal backing they have been lacking when stealing from their customers.

The latest country attributed to the cyber-attacks on US banks is Russia. McAfee Labs warns of a cyber-attack planned for the spring of 2013 that will steal millions of dollars from customer accounts. Thirty US banks have been named as a nameless, faceless band of “criminals” have released a Trojan virus that will remove digital currency from accounts at banks like:

• JPMorgan Chase & Co
• Wells Fargo
• Citibank
• PayPal/eBay
• Fidelity
• Charles Schwab
• Wachovia
• Capital One
• Bank of America
• Suntrust
• eTrade
• Ameritrade
• Navy Federal Credit Union

The scheme is referred to as ‘Project Blitzkrieg” (PB). In a beta-testing of the assault, it is reported that 300 bank accounts were affected in the US. The recruitment for PB is being linked to Russian cyber-criminals and an alleged cyber-mafia headed by an anonymous NSD. Those who enter into PB are tasked with infecting specified US computers with predetermined malware, cloning, syphoning passwords and login information, transferring digital information from customer accounts.

Pat Calhoun, a senior vice president at McAfee said: “Our researchers have been pouring into this and what they have found, they actually found somewhere between 300 to 500 devices in the U.S. that have actually been infected with the particular malware that this individual is talking about. That, combined with some additional research we’re doing, has led us to believe this is true. This is actually a real operation that this individual is planning to launch sometime before spring 2013.”

The banking institutions have decided to join forces to fight the cyber-attacks, along with the federal government so that technological vulnerabilities are identified and eliminated. Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are discussing converging on a shared data center where secret banking information can be kept under wraps so that hackers cannot steal information as well as sound an alarm when other banks are under attack.

This new network of technocrats will privatize customer banking information in the name of security while allowing the banksters to further hide their questionable dealings. Banks across America will be able to communicate in covert means that will never be released to the general public. The days of banking scandals are over because their network will prevent them for being caught.


former CEO of Goldman Sachs and Governor of New Jersey, Jon Corzine, engineered over $1 Billion of company losses and then stole client money to cover his proprietary losses.  He, nor anyone else has gone to jail and clients have not gotten their money back.  The pillaging of client accounts is now spreading to other firms.  No money is safe until these perps are frog marched all over mainstream media, shamed for their crimes publicly and given lengthy jail terms.

With at least one out of every four bankers at U.S. Big Banks (that’s how many admitted to being crooks in the survey) thinking that stealing is part of their job descriptions, it’s very important for people to realize how little protection there now is between these thieves and your bank accounts. Based on the writing of a number of other individuals with more expertise in these markets, it is apparently an inherently fraudulent banking process known as “rehypothecation” which is allowing the mass-plundering of accounts at U.S. financial institutions, with other Western financial regulatory authorities also rubber-stamping this relatively new form of bankster crime.


Asian Currencies Devaluing

“”I can’t recall a move in currencies that has been so deliberate and so linear without any apparent real change in fundamentals,” said ANZ’s Richard Yetsenga on CNBC Asia’s “Squawk Box.”  “The yen’s move has largely been on the basis of an apparent move in government policy and the market is front-running that.”

Of course, everyone has noticed Tokyo’s new currency policy.  Europe and South Korea in particular have complained, but China by and large has not.

Why complain when you can engineer the value of your currency?  Beijing has been manipulating the yuan downward, and Seoul has been fiddling with the won.  The South Korean currency is down 2.53% against the dollar since the end of December.  At the same time, the Taiwan dollar is off 2.37% against the greenback.  From all outward appearances, countries in Asia are now engaged in competitive devaluations.”

Venezeula Devalues Currency

While the rest of the developed world is scrambling here and there, politely prodding its central bankers to destroy their relative currencies, all the while naming said devaluation assorted names, “quantitative easing” being the most popular, here comes Venezuela and shows the banana republics of the developed world what lobbing a nuclear bomb into a currency war knife fight looks like:


And that, ladies and gents of Caracas, is how you just lost 46% of your purchasing power, unless of course your fiat was in gold and silver, which just jumped by about 46%. And, in case there is confusion, this is in process, and coming soon to every “developed world” banana republic near you.



Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word. It is the word “maladjusted.” Now we all should seek to live a well—adjusted life in order to avoid neurotic and schizophrenic personalities. But there are some things within our social order to which I am proud to be maladjusted and to which I call upon you to be maladjusted.

I never intend to adjust myself to segregation and discrimination. I never intend to adjust myself to mob rule. I never intend to adjust myself to the tragic effects of the methods of physical violence and to tragic militarism. I call upon you to be maladjusted to such things. I call upon you to be as maladjusted to such things. I call upon you to be as maladjusted as Amos who in the midst of the injustices of his day cried out in words that echo across the generation, “Let judgment run down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” As maladjusted as Abraham Lincoln who had the vision to see that this nation could not exist half slave and half free.

As maladjusted as Jefferson, who in the midst of an age amazingly adjusted to slavery could cry out, “All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” As maladjusted as Jesus of Nazareth who dreamed a dream of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. God grant that we will be so maladjusted that we will be able to go out and change our world and our civilization. And then we will be able to move from the bleak and desolate midnight of man’s inhumanity to man to the bright and glittering daybreak of freedom and justice. MLK
Help Fight Fracking ~ Join the Anti-Fractivist (or Pro Healthy World) Tour

Apathy about fracking in California surprises New York and Pennsylvania environmentalists, who enjoy huge numbers of protestors at anti-fracking rallies.

This weeklong speaking tour hosted by Global Exchange and a growing list of partners will visit communities across California and expose the reality of fracking in the state and engage community members in the movement to take action to oppose this harmful and dangerous practice.

The speaking tour will target impacted communities throughout the largest shale regions in Central and Southern California. We will bring prominent voices, community activists, scientists, and anti-fracking leaders to California audiences—and a menu of ways for communities to engage – from working with Global Exchange to pass a “rights-based” local ban, to linking them to all of the organizations, tools, tactics and strategies employed by the growing anti-fracking movement in California.

• Tour stops include: Sacramento, San Luis Obispo, Ventura, Culver City, Los Angeles and hopefully your community (additional communities to be added).
• Each stop along the tour will include a day of action; we are working with host communities to develop unique actions that meet each community’s need. Each day’s activity will also be preceded by a local media plan, social media outreach, and collaborative efforts. At each stop we will also hold a planning meeting with community groups. We expect much of the energy we generate on this tour will build toward larger statewide engagement and action.

Sherry Vargson, who leased the mineral rights under her Pennsylvania farm to an energy company, demonstrates that methane has leached into her well water by lighting the water on fire as it pours from her kitchen sink. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, has left some of the water in northeastern Pennsylvania nonpotable, forcing many residents to rely on outside water distribution.

Pennsylvania Fracking Law Opens Up Drilling on College

Chemicals Used in Fracking are ‘Trade Secrets’.

When several unrelated patients visited McMurray, Pa.-based plastic surgeon Amy Paré, MD, she initially was unsure what to make of the bleeding, oozing legions covering their faces.

The wounds were not cancerous, but the inflammation was severe and becoming worse. Dr. Paré’s suspicions grew when she learned that the patients lived near the same natural gas drilling site. Tests later found that the patients had phenol and hippuric acid in their urine, two contact irritants rarely found in humans. The patients improved after they stopped drinking water from their underground wells.

“Knowing what chemicals they had been exposed to would have sped up the process” of treating the patients, said Dr. Paré, who specializes in treating skin conditions.

But at the time, no official route existed for doctors to learn what chemicals patients may have been exposed to near drilling sites, information that remains protected as trade secrets unless lawmakers dictate otherwise


It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who errs and comes short again and again . . . who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the least knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.  –Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt


“Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” by: Tecumseh -(1768-1813) Shawnee Chief

R.U.T.  ‘Realistic Urban Training’ aka Conditioning the Boiling Frogs (thats us) to Accept Our Servitude

This writer is a Navy veteran, receiver of a Navy Commendation medal for lifesaving, Fleet Marine Force Expeditionary medal (2) and several letters of commendation – among other ribbons and medals.  I also spent time at Camp Lejuene.At no time during my time there were “realistic urban training” exercises conducted in towns and cities.  This is a recent development.  A news article was sent to me earlier this week.  It appeared in the Beaufort Gazette.  The article stated that later this week about 150 Marines and Navy personnel will hold realistic urban training in Jasper County, South Carolina.

Realistic Urban Training is happening all over the U.S.  In Miami, Florida on January 26, 2013, Army Backhawk helicopters swooped through the city at night, firing door-guns and chasing make-believe bad guys like something out of an action movie.  The fired blanks echoed off of the buildings, scaring many residents into taking cover.  The local news reported excitedly about the exercise, stating it was only a drill and for residents not to be concerned. However, there was no journalistic follow up asking hard questions.  Such as, who authorized an exercise without informing the public?  Why conduct this type of training in a populated U.S. city and put citizens at risk?  Isn’t this a violation of Posse Comitatus?  No hard follow up questions were asked, and to my knowledge, have not been since.

Not even when the same exercise occurred in Houston, Texas on January 29, 2013.   The U.S. Army along with other agencies took over the Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston on Monday. Alarmed residents called police and complained about gunshots and helicopters.  No details were provided about the training.  Watch the KTRK-TV Houston report and hear how alarmed residents responded after hearing gunshots and seeing military helicopters flying over their homes.

Wednesday, January 30, 2013.  The same types of exercises were conducted in Galveston, Texas.  The Houston Chronicle reported The training involved about 80 soldiers from the U.S. Army Special Operations Command in coordination with local law enforcement.

I’ve highlighted a few examples, but there are more.  In a search I came upon these others.  Los Angeles, CA,  Plainville and Worchester, Massachusetts.  As reported in the other stories, residents were unaware of the drills until helicopters swooped over their neighborhoods. And here’s more: Minneapolis, MN, and this in East Saint Louis, MO.  There are many more, but these links provide a foundation for further research.

I spoke with a high-ranking, military source in DHS.   Preferring to remain unnamed for obvious reasons, he told me, “DHS and DOD are conducting desensitizing exercises all across the U.S.,” he paused, then added, “we’re being prepared for mass civil unrest in major U.S. cities.  DOD will be expected to help – when we’re requested.”

I asked if there was a timeline for expecting civil unrest in our cities and why should we expect it to begin with.  I was told that there were many reasons, but that the continued devaluation of our currency, the predicted history-setting prices for gasoline this summer and the continued gun control debate are forming a perfect storm of civil discontent.  When this storm hits, it will most assuredly produce mass casualties.  When does DHS expect this to happen?  This summer.

From a high-ranking source deep within DHS, who has strong DOD ties, we are being told that joint DOD-local law enforcement exercises are to desensitize us to military occupation.  When asked if there was any concern about violating Posse Comitatus, he stated “no concern at all,” and added, “That’s been a non-issue for a long time.”

Reuters recently reported Jesse Jackson’s request for armed TSA in the streets of Chicago.  Is it no longer a question of IF we see armed soldiers patrolling U.S. streets – but WHEN?  And notice the way most mainstream media presents these training exercises.  They are presented nearly like entertainment

Subterrene: Secret Nuclear Tunnel Drill

Imagine a machine tunneling seven miles per day through solid rock, boulders and clay…virtually anything below the waterline.

A machine whose heart is a compact nuclear reactor circulating liquid lithium at 2,000 degrees F. through a rotating face that melts a tunnel 40 feet in diameter; even injecting magma into fractures in bedrock for extreme solidity, sealing the tunnel with a glassy lining, and leaving no excavated material behind.

The nuclear subterrene was born at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Patents were taken out in the ’70s. And since their mission is a menace to public interest, subterrenes have been minimized from public awareness.

It might be safe to say that subterrenes are the hottest tool going, underground. A kind of nuclear nightcrawler.

More on Geoengineering the Weather for ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’

Geoengineering creating Snow storms around the Globe

Over the past twenty years experiments have been
conducted on weather modification, particularly on the effects of seedinq clouds with such materials as silver iodide crystals.

It outlines a “special commission” to coordinate the multiple governmental agencies, independent contractors and universities. It also deals with managing  international, legal, social implications and mentions possible species disruptions, biological consequences and possible military use. We can conclude that weather modification has probably started as early as 1946. According to the above document the program was funded in 1967 with 6.25 million $ and the funding prospect for 1970 was  248.5 million $. We can only speculate as to the amount of funding today.

After decades of weather modification the climate is now severely disrupted, what we experience today is not natural weather. In the meantime the military aspect has become a major part of the project. In the introduction to an article on Global Research [1] Prof. Michel Chossudovsky writes (emphasis added):

“Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.”

Drought to Continue Through 2013

California to Spend Billions for Water Diverting Venture

SPENCER MICHELS: What worries Reynolds is a plan proposed by Governor Jerry Brown and U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to build two wide 35-mile-long tunnels under the delta, so that much of the water from the Sacramento River will bypass the delta, and will flow by gravity directly to massive pumps, and then will be sent south.

It will be used to irrigate crops, as well as to supply cities in southern California. Those pumps have existed for decades, making some rivers flow backwards, killing millions of fish and degrading the habitat by allowing salt to intrude from the bay.

REP. JOHN GARAMENDI (D-Calif.): This is plumbing before policy. This proposal doesn’t develop one gallon of new water. But it delivers precious water that the delta needs, the fish need, the farmers need, the cities in the delta need, delivers that water to the pumps so that it can go south.

SPENCER MICHELS: This is not the first, and it certainly won’t be the last time that Californians are engaged in a major, nasty battle over water. In 1982, voters in this state rejected a plan to put a canal around the periphery of the delta. It would have made it easier to take northern California south.

Doug Hemly has been in the trenches of the water wars. His family has lived and farmed along the Sacramento River since 1850.

DOUG HEMLY, delta farmer: The proposed volume that they’re saying they want to take theoretically would suck this dry, and you would have — be able to walk across it.

SPENCER MICHELS: Are you kidding, I mean, suck the Sacramento River dry?

DOUG HEMLY: There’s 14,000 cubic feet per second flowing by here. And they want to put in pumps that will suck out 15,000 cubic feet per second.

SPENCER MICHELS: Of course, they’re not saying they’re going to suck this dry.

DOUG HEMLY: Well, I think, if they don’t want to suck it dry, why build it so they could suck it dry? It doesn’t make sense.

Those environmental problems have prompted courts to restrict the flow of water. And that has caused southern water users to complain that their supplies have become unreliable and erratic. Salazar says fixing the system with tunnels is a major reason the federal government is involved.

Dear Readers,
I begin this post as my preceding one ended: with the graph of the forecast for petroleum production contained in the last annual report of the International Energy Agency (IEA), referring to its central (or main) scenario on New Policies. This graph, as earlier mentioned, shows that on a global level production of crude oil soon will begin its decline. The forecasts of the IEA contain certain elements which are at the very least “slightly optimistic”, to not say outright fanciful, regarding the expected future production from reservoirs yet to be discovered and developed as well as considerably inflated prospects regarding non-conventional oil; based on the latter the IAE obtains a daily production level of 100 million barrels of oil per day (Mb/d) in 2035 compared to the almost 87 Mb/d in 2011.

 So God Made A Farmer ~  Brilliant from Paul Harvey ****


Auguries of Ignorance ~ William Blake

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

A robin redbreast in a cage
Puts all heaven in a rage.

A dove-house fill'd with doves and pigeons
Shudders hell thro' all its regions.
A dog starv'd at his master's gate
Predicts the ruin of the state.

A horse misused upon the road
Calls to heaven for human blood.
Each outcry of the hunted hare
A fibre from the brain does tear.

A skylark wounded in the wing,
A cherubim does cease to sing.
The game-cock clipt and arm'd for fight
Does the rising sun affright.

Every wolf's and lion's howl
Raises from hell a human soul.

The wild deer, wand'ring here and there,
Keeps the human soul from care.
The lamb misus'd breeds public strife,
And yet forgives the butcher's knife.

The bat that flits at close of eve
Has left the brain that won't believe.
The owl that calls upon the night
Speaks the unbeliever's fright.

He who shall hurt the little wren
Shall never be belov'd by men.
He who the ox to wrath has mov'd
Shall never be by woman lov'd.

The wanton boy that kills the fly
Shall feel the spider's enmity.
He who torments the chafer's sprite
Weaves a bower in endless night.

The caterpillar on the leaf
Repeats to thee thy mother's grief.
Kill not the moth nor butterfly,
For the last judgement draweth nigh.

He who shall train the horse to war
Shall never pass the polar bar.
The beggar's dog and widow's cat,
Feed them and thou wilt grow fat.

The gnat that sings his summer's song
Poison gets from slander's tongue.
The poison of the snake and newt
Is the sweat of envy's foot.

The poison of the honey bee
Is the artist's jealousy.

The prince's robes and beggar's rags
Are toadstools on the miser's bags.
A truth that's told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.

It is right it should be so;
Man was made for joy and woe;
And when this we rightly know,
Thro' the world we safely go.

Joy and woe are woven fine,
A clothing for the soul divine.
Under every grief and pine
Runs a joy with silken twine.

The babe is more than swaddling bands;
Every farmer understands.
Every tear from every eye
Becomes a babe in eternity;

This is caught by females bright,
And return'd to its own delight.
The bleat, the bark, bellow, and roar,
Are waves that beat on heaven's shore.

The babe that weeps the rod beneath
Writes revenge in realms of death.
The beggar's rags, fluttering in air,
Does to rags the heavens tear.

The soldier, arm'd with sword and gun,
Palsied strikes the summer's sun.
The poor man's farthing is worth more
Than all the gold on Afric's shore.

One mite wrung from the lab'rer's hands
Shall buy and sell the miser's lands;
Or, if protected from on high,
Does that whole nation sell and buy.

He who mocks the infant's faith
Shall be mock'd in age and death.
He who shall teach the child to doubt
The rotting grave shall ne'er get out.

He who respects the infant's faith
Triumphs over hell and death.
The child's toys and the old man's reasons
Are the fruits of the two seasons.

The questioner, who sits so sly,
Shall never know how to reply.
He who replies to words of doubt
Doth put the light of knowledge out.

The strongest poison ever known
Came from Caesar's laurel crown.
Nought can deform the human race
Like to the armour's iron brace.

When gold and gems adorn the plow,
To peaceful arts shall envy bow.
A riddle, or the cricket's cry,
Is to doubt a fit reply.

The emmet's inch and eagle's mile
Make lame philosophy to smile.
He who doubts from what he sees
Will ne'er believe, do what you please.

If the sun and moon should doubt,
They'd immediately go out.
To be in a passion you good may do,
But no good if a passion is in you.

The whore and gambler, by the state
Licensed, build that nation's fate.
The harlot's cry from street to street
Shall weave old England's winding-sheet.

The winner's shout, the loser's curse,
Dance before dead England's hearse.

Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born,
Every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight.

Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night.

We are led to believe a lie
When we see not thro' the eye,
Which was born in a night to perish in a night,
When the soul slept in beams of light.

God appears, and God is light,
To those poor souls who dwell in night;
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day.
