Is it REAL or is it a SCAMMER?

I have been pretty much out of commission since I got sick in late 2007, and was quite busy before that, but since getting a bit more active as my health improves a bit, I see that things are still much the same in this online world.

There are those who genuinely due their own due diligence,  and want to see the real scammers driven from the internet (and the planet!!)

There are those who want someone else to do the digging for them, because they don't really know how to do it, or they are unsure of their own abilities and cannot afford to get scammed.

Let's Build a Pipeline!!

by Dave Cottrell

Controversy has raged across North America for the last few years, throughout both Canada and the United States, over proposed pipelines that would move bitumen from the Alberta, Canada "Tar Sands" to oil refineries on the Gulf of Mexico and/or in Asia.

After much loud protest, with an election on the horizon in the US, President Obama put at least a temporary halt to the line going to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Ignorant Majority - guest article by Kathleen Cottrell

The Ignorant Majority -  Archaeological Discovery and Land Claims

     by Kathleen Cottrell
     The past is important in shaping the future. Claims for the land of Canada by a multitude of nations who occupied the land and lived here for thousands of years before Europeans arrived seeking to plunder its many resources and subsequently settle this so-called empty land for the taking are ongoing. The archaeological discovery made near Sechelt, BC, offers further evidence that Canada was populated by many nations who were highly civilized long before the arrival of Europeans.

     With respect to the Sechelt nation, a recent discovery by archaeologists of the burial site of an ancient Shishalh chief of great importance was reported in the Coast Reporter on August 3, 2012. The 4,000 year old burial site is reported to be one of the most important archaeological discoveries in British Columbia by Dr. Terence Clark of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The work by archaeologists, Dr. Terence Clark and Gary Coupland, professor at the University of Toronto, has been ongoing since 2010. The most significant discovery is that of an individual buried with over 350,000 hand crafted stone beads,

It's Time...

by Dave Cottrell

It's time for Congress and the Senate to start working together.  If they continue to stand toe to toe and nose to nose like the the Zax of Dr. Suess fame (with apologies...):
"The day after election day,One day, making tracks
In the prairie of Political Prats,

While all the arguing is going on over who is to blame for Benghazi, people back in the US are mourning the loss of loved ones, something that shouldn't be happening.

Evidence is mounting, and indeed, it is becoming a mountain of evidence, that those in charge back in the United States, right up to the president, himself, knew exactly what was going on in Benghazi that led to the deaths of four Americans, and in fact, may have been watching much of it from a link to a drone that was overhead in Benghazi at the time of the attack.

One thing that is quite certain:  This was no simple protest, no riot started by a bad video out of the US.

WWIII on the NEAR Horizon?

by Dave Cottrell

For a long time now, I've been warning folks to stand firm against the west getting involved in Syria. It is MUCH more dangerous than what is going on between Iran and Israel, although there is much danger there, as well.

However, the Iran-Israel battle MAY WELL play out IN Syria, to begin with. Already, Iran is heavily involved there, as are the Russians.

What is not so well known is that there are reports coming out through the intelligence underground of high tech weapons from Ghaddafi's former regime being smuggled out of Libya and into the hands of the "Free Syrian Army," via help from the West, and specifically from the USA.

Garbage Inflammatory Posts on Facebook

There is a grisly photo being circulated on Facebook that is claimed to be a recent photograph of a Christian man executed by an angry Muslim mob in Egypt. The fact of the matter is, it is NOT a recent photo, nor is it in Egypt, nor is the body that of a Christian. In fact, it is a vigilante mob in LEBANON in 2010, who hung an EGYPTIAN MUSLIM man, who had been arrested on suspicion of killing four Lebanese members of one family. Those killed were two children and their grandparents, all of whom, including the alleged killer, lived in the same building. Furthermore, the man had confessed to the killings! This is HORRIBLE, GARBAGE PROPAGANDA that only HARMS the cause of those who post it! If you have ANY doubts, don't take my word for it. Use Google Translate to see for yourself. You can translate the whole page. Note that I have not been able to find this page in English, perhaps because CNN does not want the West to see photos of such barbarism coming out of an Arabic country... Folks, I can never say it too often, nor can I forget it, myself... Do your due diligence before jumping in! My two cents on it...

Progress Report... Ugh...

by Dave Cottrell
It is now September 29, 2012.  I have been sick with Lyme Disease since the end of 2007.  Prior to that time, I was extremely healthy, and able to literally outperform most men half my age.  I could walk from sunup to sundown without resting.  I could run up and down ladders all day.  My thinking was clear, my ability to multi-task was very good, and my mind was sharp virtually all the time.

By mid-October of 2008, however, I had to finally admit defeat and walk away from an excellent position at an excellent company due to an inability to properly concentrate, combined with an overwhelming fatigue that had set in, intense pain over much of my body, inability to sleep, terrible sweats, and many other lesser problems.  It was no longer possible for me to properly focus and think for any length of time, making me somewhat less than a valuable asset to the company I was working for.

Fast forward to today.  It has taken a long time and many unfruitful trips to many doctors and specialists, but I have finally found a doctor,

It is now April, 2012.  I originally got sick in late 2007.  It is interesting that it was in 2007 that Open Eye Pictures,  the company that made the award winning documentary, Under Our Skin , a film about Lyme Disease in the USA.

As production of the documentary neared completion, the film company tried to get some answers about the disease from the Connecticut Center for Disease Control, under the Freedom of Information Act.  Under the FIA, the CDC was required by law to release the information, but they continue to this day to use every legal means possible to suppress the information.

WHY?  What is so important to be kept secret that the CDC is willing to wasted thousands and thousands of dollars of taxpayer money in legal wranglings to suppress?

It is VERY important to be diagnosed quickly if you are bitten by a Bb (Burrelia Burdorferi=Lyme) infected tick.  If you go on the proper antibiotics within the first couple of months, they will get rid of any Bb or co-infections, but once they get a foothold, they are very difficult to get rid of.  

Unfortunately, very few doctors are what we call "Lyme Literate Doctors" or LLMDs.  They are NOT educated to recognize the early symptoms, and many of them will not even recognize the tell tale "bull's eye" or  Erythema chronicum migrans  (EM) rash that a small percentage of infected people get in the earliest stages of the infection.  (This rash GUARANTEES without ANY further testing that the cause is Bb, and can be immediately and quickly treated with antibiotics and eradicated usually withing three to six weeks.)

Other doctors that have a bit of knowledge of the disease are taught that unless the rash is present, the person does not have LD (Lyme Disease).  This is what is presently claimed on the Wikipedia website, is absolutely false, and it is my opinion that the truth is being deliberately suppressed and withheld from doctors.  The more this disease is studied by sound research, the lower the percentage goes for those LD infected patients who display the EM rash.
