This is a bill that is going through the US Congress, yet affects all of us from around the world. There are actually two bills, the Stop Online Piracy Act known as SOPA, - and a joint piece of legislation, known as the Protect IP [Intellectual Property] Act - PIPA. In a country and world obsessed with IP and Patents, as it’s not the ordinary man or women in the street who are being protected and cared for, - as the percentage of inventors and entrepreneurs are so miniscule, in comparison…Continue

If we actually have an election at least you'll know who to vote out :)
Here is a list of Congressional politicians in favor of the bill known as SOPA and PIPA and the amounts of money they received from the SOPA backers who bought their favor in voting yes for both bills.

Chad Gerondale, 41, has hired well-known Fairbanks attorney Bill Satterberg to represent him in the “meat for heat” case, as it has been dubbed by online spectators.
“I’ve got a lot to say about it but (Satterberg) told me not to,” Gerondale told the News-Miner Tuesday morning when he returned phone messages left during the weekend.
Alaska Wildlife Troopers last week issued Gerondale a summons to appear in court on Feb. 3 to be arraigned on a misdemeanor…Continue
We’ve already established Jack Straw, the then Home Secretary, said in 1998; “Membership of secret societies such as Freemasonry could raise suspicions of impartiality and objectivity”. However what went wrong, why have things remained the same? Well in November 2009 Jack Straw’s decision to no longer force applicants for the judiciary to declare if they are Freemasons was announced. He incredibly said;“No evidence of impropriety or malpractice” – Let’s not forget…Continue

The British National Party’s [BNP], Nick Griffin’s Masonic Link, is interestingly enough via his father Edgar Griffin, whose a long-standing Freemason, - and that Peter Silver; of Chartered Accountants Silver & Co, is the Lodge Grand Master, and is based at Bridgenorth, Shropshire. Clearly such a position of Masonic authority conveys considerable power within the Masonic community and the Non-Masonic world, where fellow Freemasons would be expected to work within the rules of the…Continue

First, I am a terrible blogger. Just look how long it has been since I posted. Anyway, I visited the Sheriff's office, the county registrar, the local DMV, and the bank, and none of them will recognize the ID that I have at this time. I have hope though, that as some of the legal machinations that are in progress come to completion that this will change. In the meantime, I ran across this website, and I think that it has a lot of good stuff in it, and the basic idea of a human being having…Continue

The suspect that caused the US to issue a terrorist warning for Thailand denies his guilt, and has a fairly believable story of how he was framed by the Mossad, the Israeli Intelligence and Special Operations Group. What he says fits with how I know the Mossad…Continue

Just letting my friends know that over the weekend while recovering from my liver biopsy I suffered a stroke and a brain aneurism due to a blood clot. This is not a joke. I lost all use and feeling of my left hand and arm. My greatest fear was that I would not be able to ever play guitar again. I am here to report that today I was able to make a fist! This is a big deal.They say it could take 9 months to regain use maybe. I usually like to remain private about…Continue

Much is said about the golden rule and do unto others, being charitable, kind and giving but in my experience in a life of almost 45 years, I rarely get a chance to see people put their money where their mouths are. People turn their noses to the needy and destitute, seemingly not wanting to be hassled with a charitable heart. This sickens me.
I may come across as an asshole, a smart-ass, a buffoon, class clown, or any number of choice adjectives you can place before my name...it's…Continue
