The Gray Area
First of all, I'm skeptical about these claims myself when others make them, as it can't be proven to be anything significant. But thought I'd share it here anyway... This morning around 09:00 mountain time, southwestern corner of Utah, out on my deck enjoying coffee, and what was to be a wonderful, warm spring day. Suddenly it got cloudy, like within minutes. There must have been static charge in the air, I could feel the hair on my arms reacting to it. There was a noise, a buzz or deep sound coming from the sky overhead. I stepped out and looked up at an unusual cloud formation, and could see what I can only describe as some kind of distortion in space/time between myself and the clouds above. I went and...

Deconstructing Disinformation
I hear it a lot from folks who aren't "gun knowledgeable": why do people think they need a gun? Carrying a gun won't make you safer. You're more likely to be shot with your own gun. If you're living in a place so dangerous that you think you need to carry, you should move. People who carry guns are just paranoid. People who carry guns are compensating for something. People who carry guns just have a secret desire to kill someone. Etc. Etc. Etc. I present to you, the following examples from just the last 60 days: "April 30, 2015: Police say the store employee was about to enter into the store with a bag under his arm when a man approached him from behind and pointed a gun...

9/11 Conspiracies

The video describes how the war games were used as an operational cover to execute the attack, lies in the 911 commission report, real evidence. Real Facts and no theories. Facts. The real conspiracies of 911 are not about...

I'll try to type this account while it is still fresh. I don't see getting any sleep any time soon. My hands are shaking as I type this. I was at the bar until a little after one a.m. I went home and fell in bed. I was just falling to sleep when I snapped awake with what I can best describe as a sense of extreme dread and nausea....

The Gray Area
I just drove past one of the larger shopping malls in our area and saw one sign after another, "Training Operation In Progress" but nothing specific as to what training or who or where. Then I saw it - at least 30 police cars lined up in three rows in a parking lot near the loop road around the mall. On the other side of the loop road in one of the larger parking...

So I'm all for equal rights. I think that women should be allowed to work in any capacity they are fit to work in. What I am against, is allowing a woman who is incapable of meeting physical standards to put herself, her coworkers and the general public at risk out of some perverse need to appear progressive....

Aliens and UFOs
I'm not in a place where I can post pictures, but this is very big news. DNA tests show these skulls from Peru are not human. They were discovered in 1928 in a mass grave in Paracas, Peru. The news just came in. The skulls are elongated, and more than a little strange. 300 were found and they date to 3000 years...

Philosophy and Metaphysics
In considering how to write up this post, I want to make a few things clear: I have great sympathy for Jenners emotional struggles. However, I do not for a second believe that the "soul" is gendered. I also do not believe that the brain is "gendered". Finally, it is a complete myth...
