Mouse-Pig & Super-Fish Seek Approval for Human Consumption | Health Freedom Alliance

There are so many insidious aspects to this but one that should seriously piss us all off and get us to do something is that fact that consumers (that's you and me) are also considered meat, of a sorts. Fodder for the agri-bio-global-corporate control of what we eat, for they don't believe we should even have a choice in the matter. Legally, these companies that are cloning, splicing, and otherwise madly creating "food" for us to consume do not have to tell us what it is we're buying to eat.

Super-pigs, Franken-fish, GM modified produce, what have you: we don't have the right to know, just the right to buy. Cute, bright little names for products and companies, with delightful packaging is all we need.

"Non-scientist" and Earthquakes

Here's a piece of disinformation: Bogus Claim: Japan Earthquake Won't Trigger a California Quake The article begins with this sentence, quickly marginalizing Newsweek writer Simon Winchester in question: (italics, bolding mine)
An unfounded scientific assertion by a nonscientist has swept across the Web like a tsunami over the past few days.

Winchester sees a pattern/connection along the Pacific Rim and earthquake activity of late -- who doesn't?! -- well, some scientists don't: (italics, bolding mine)
There is no evidence for a connection between all of the Pacific Rim earthquakes," Nathan Bangs, a geophysicist who studies tectonic processes at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, told Life's Little Mysteries. "I don't know what the basis is for the statements and implications in the Newsweek article, but there is no evidence that there is a link."

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) earthquake geologist David Schwartz, who heads the San Francisco Bay Area Earthquake Hazards Project, concurred. "Simon Winchester is a popular science writer, not a scientist," Schwartz said. "I'm not saying we won't have an earthquake here in California at some point in the future, but there really is no physical connection between these earthquakes."

Note the comment about Winchester's non-scientific standing: "Simon Winchester is a popular science writer, not a scientist."

Article goes on to explain the "cascade effect" and more on how earthquakes are "triggered" but as to any patterns, no such thing. Conceding an earthquake could happen, one scientist remarks:
"I'm not saying we won't have an earthquake here in California at some point in the future, but there really is no physical connection between these earthquakes."

Crazy Temperature Changes in Oklahoma

Temperature swings 100 degrees in one week in Okla. town

Residents in the Northern Oklahoma town of Nowata experienced a nearly 110-degree shift in the weather this week after a cold front brought temperatures down to a record-setting -31 degrees.

Today, it's a balmy 72 degrees in Nowata. Yesterday, it reached 79 degrees.

Magnitude 3.4 - NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

Magnitude 3.4 - NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

I have a feeling there'll be a earthquake --- between a 3. 5 and 6.5 --- within the southern CA range, or up to S.F., and or Northern Washington, Brittish Columbia within the coming days; no later than early April. I'm not getting the feeling it'll be bigger than that; not yet.

On Above Top Secret: Weird Rumbles From Around the World

Among the many interesting threads over at Above Top Secret is this one:Rumbling noise being heard around the world...report here... discussing the downright eerie rumblings being heard from various locations. Strange, loud hums and other sounds from within the earth as well as the skies have been reported for some time -- "the Taos Hum" for example -- yet no satisfying explanation has been given.

Our Sickness: "Watch This Video"

I just have to comment; was over at ABC News.com, and noticed on the right side of the page three little video snippets with their captions.

The first clip encourages us to "Watch this video" of a child's death; an accident in a park. Why the fuck would I want to watch a video of someone's child being killed? What is wrong with us? (I'm not linking to the clip for obvious reasons.)

The second clip was something like "College Student Gets Suckered Punched," which again, I don't want to see. Why these invitations to witness the violence and personal tragedies of individuals?

The third clip was on the nuclear reactors in Japan.

The juxtaposition of these clips, as well as their importance according to their place in the line-up, is chilling.

Speaking of placement; I noticed in today's local paper that there were only two small articles on what is happening in Japan, and those were on page three.

The Fullest Moon, Earthquake Predictions

This weekend gives us the moon at its fullest, brightest, and possibly, maddest, given what humanity and Gaia have been experiencing in recent times. Weekend full moon the biggest in about 20 years - CNN.com
Saturday's full moon will be a super "perigee moon" -- the biggest in almost 20 years. This celestial event is far rarer than the famed blue moon, which happens once about every two-and-a-half years. . .

"Nearby perigee moons are about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons that occur on the apogee side of the moon's orbit," the NASA website says.

This full moon will rise in the east at sunset and should look especially big at that time because of what's known as the "moon illusion."

Jim Berkland predicts "the big one" on the west coast, probably California near the bay area, between March 19th and the 26th.
