Will the 'Dark Web' Rise to the Top?

Net Neutrality is a thing of the past, unless lawsuits succeed and it all goes away. Meanwhile, the culture stream has been seeding entertainment with the dark web meme, not to mention the hackers, black hat, white hat and terrorists   from everywhere.

Will the dark web rise, replacing the restrictions and censures put in place by various ISPs? If it does, it won't last too long before the dark web becomes washed out to a dull gray before turning thread bare white, and a deeper, darker web takes its place.

Some don't worry about this latest internet news. They think it won't amount to anything, that control by ISPs and corporations is too complicated a venture -- too global, too much of  a hassle. Could be.

Whether that proves to be true or not, the important point is that such a thing came to be in the first place. The POTUS is spewing fascist spittle at us as fast as he can. He's been doing so, he continues to do so. It's not just the POTUS, it's those close to him who do what he dictates and allow him to continue to play emperor.

I get irritated at those who rant at me "How can we let this go on?" and "We deserve this." Fuck no we don't deserve this. I didn't vote for him. I'm not the one allowing him to continue. I'm one out of roughly three hundred and thirty million citizens. Don't put that on me.

So, it will be interesting to see if all these things: the sexual harassment call outs, net neutrality biting the dust, Russia's hacking, etc. actually stops because accountability has been demanded.  More likely, it will simply quiet down, unobtrusively becoming a part of the everyday.

In other words, no matter how much squirming happens before the frog is thrown into the water, it's still a slow boil.

Sexually active students must be reported to law enforcement or state officials, Ore. school district says - The Washington Post

In my state, educators are mandated to report students who talk about being sexually active, as well as suspected sexually active students.

There is an on-line petition to get rid of this "law" which has various Oregon school districts confused as to the validity of this mandate. If it is a mandate.

Here's the opening paragraph from the article; follow the link for the full item.

Sexually active students must be reported to law enforcement or state officials, Ore. school district says - The Washington Post: Teachers and staff in the Salem-Keizer school district — which includes more than 40,000 students — were recently told that if they learn or merely suspect a student is sexually active, they must report it to law enforcement or state officials.

According to Oregon law, anyone under 18 years old cannot legally give consent, meaning all sexual activity between minors is considered sexual abuse. This policy, district officials say, stems from Oregon’s mandatory reporting and child abuse laws. But that seems to be a singular interpretation of the law. The Statesman Journal reached out to school districts around the state and found that not one of them had the same mandate.

Room Full Of Men Decides Fate Of Women's Health Care | HuffPost

Pelosi's comment that the GOP's perspectives and beliefs regarding women would cause the government to make "…being a woman a pre-existing condition" isn't too far off from a looming reality:

Room Full Of Men Decides Fate Of Women's Health Care | HuffPost: Experts worry that if insurance companies are given the option of offering expensive services like maternity care, it will become a race to the bottom where that coverage, once again, becomes scarce.

But there were few, if any, women at the White House this morning to voice these concerns to the men around the table.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday that the GOP health care bill could end up “making being a woman a pre-existing condition.”

California city confiscates toilets from homeless residents – forcing them to use buckets | US news | The Guardian

From the Guardian. Anaheim, California, home of Disneyland as well as home to hundreds of homeless living along the riverbank. The city and county both removed port-potties that were paid for by activists. No where for the homeless to relieve themselves, or, wash up.

California city confiscates toilets from homeless residents – forcing them to use buckets | US news | The Guardian: But the toilets are sitting unused after being confiscated by the city, and the residents have nowhere to relieve themselves except in the bushes, or in buckets, or in the cramped privacy of their own tents. Activists are up in arms over the primitive conditions in which camp inhabitants are living, and which, in their view, the local government appears to have sanctioned.

“This is a public health crisis for the homeless community,” said Mohammed Aly, a homeless advocate and lawyer who helped install the toilets. Not least it was a case, he said, of providing people with simple human dignity.

Oh Beware the Antifa

Black clad, hooded protesters, with Antifa logos, (very spiffy) committing violent acts. Protesting against white supremicts, fascists, nazi, neo-nazis, racists. And yet, oh wait, the Antifa are as bad, if not worse, than those listed.

It is very worrisome that this obvious, in your face, clearly apparent false flag of a "movement" is exactly that. Of course there are the well meaning dupes who've joined the so called antifa movement -- that's how it works. With any created organization, with just a very few who know exactly what's going on, are the thousands below (the pawns, the down trodden, the well meaning but naive,) who join. And that's all it takes.

Notice how the plethora of the Antifa has become a focus of the mass media since after Trump's, the POTUS, The Orange One, gave his infamous speech about "many sides." And so now, we media and popular culture buying into the false flag narrative that the "antifa" are as bad, as heinous, as morally corrupt, as the neo-nazis, the racists, the ones who murder in the name of bigotry and racial purity.

This is such an obvious ploy, it seems. Unfortunately, most liberals (and yes, I am a liberal) just can't get there. Well meaning and full of goodness, they just can't let their toes touch that line of assumed conspiracy and paranoia. This refusal to see the reality is part of what keeps things going along very nicely and according to plan.

There is no "antifa." Antifa vs. Alt right. Like a wrestling match. Put both sides in such simplistic terms (well, wait, the alt right is exactly that, crazy paranoid violent racist assholes) and we're done. Setting up the two extremes, and the rest of us in the middle, who go along to get along.

Political Views and UFOs

With the orange one now our nation's president, social media is full of commentary from many citizens. Including me. Since I'm involved in UFO and related high strangeness research, many of those comments come from other UFO researchers and witnesses that I follow on social media.  Unfortunately, many of them are conservatives -- and worse. They voted for Trump; their comments are ones that defend and support Trump's policies and behavior. This, of course, fucking astounds me.

It takes a brave soul to put oneself out there as a UFO researcher, or witness, or even an interested bystander. Culture still scoffs, despite para-tainment successes such as Ancient Aliens.

That's a bit beside the point -- my point here is that, given one's conservative, ultra patriotic nationalistic fervor that goes along with supporting Trump, doesn't support UFO research. (This is also true of the other side, though to a lesser degree. Politics in general is a nasty, untrustworthy realm.)

As much as I "believe" in aliens from outer space, I am also aware that many of the UFOs we see are ours, not "theirs." They are classified, top secret. They are covert. Clandestine. Up to no good, most often, for they're weapons and tools used to spy on citizens. Mind control, disinformation, misinformation, crass debunkery, all government created, and inflicted on us hoi polloi. Conspiracies are not fantasies of paranoid minds; they're real, and the facts are hiding in plain sight. RFID chips, tracking devices, implants, staged abductions (MILABS), disclosure/Disclosure, are all government -- and industry -- manipulated events that control the situation. A sloppy control, maybe, but that doesn't stop them.

So why support those politicians whose priority is to keep the global-military-industrial-complex going at all costs, including the illegal and immoral mind fuck games concerning UFOs?

Some time ago, conservative Alex Jones was in the middle of the road okay, speaking out against government's heavy hand in context of UFOs. Nowadays, he's a screaming fruitcake -- he's the Rush Limbaugh of Forteana.

Are the ETs space brothers, benevolent and caring, compassionate and only trying to teach us love? If so, those in UFO Land who fall into the Trump camp are in for a big surprise. What would ET think about that? Instead of WWJD (what would Jesus do?) ask WWAD? (What would aliens do?)

Or are the aliens, whether from outer space or elsewhere, either indifferent or worse, intent on evil? They win, and the nationalistic fascist orange one and his supporters win too.

I can't put it together; the political mindset of prayer, patriotism, and money with the UFO journey. The very government one supports is the one hiding and controlling and manipulating the phenomena.

It goes way beyond disclosure. There's all the stuff happening now in front of us that no one talks about, let alone cares about (i.e., the general culture) that is scary.

One well known UFO researcher accused me, years ago, of not being "patriotic" when I told him I hadn't reported my sighting to local police, or.. I'm not sure where he thought I should have reported it to. I reported it to him, didn't I? What the hell did "patriotism" have to do with reporting a UFO sighting?

We're human, and so of course we have varied beliefs in all areas; religion, childrearing, music, you name it. Oh, and, politics. Usually it's the left who tend to mock "belief" in things like Sasquatch, ghosts, and UFOs. I like Stephen Colbert, but give a loud sigh when he makes fun of "Bigfoot believers" as do many a liberal pundit. The right either stays away completely from such silliness, or comes out with it. Which only continues the divide: one side mocks, the other gets defensive, attacking the snobs on the left, who attack the uneducated rubes on the right . . . neither are correct.

Meanwhile, "they" -- and I don't mean the aliens -- are in control. They could not give a damn about us.

So instead of supporting people and policies that divide and harm, making it easier for aliens to come and eat us for lunch, why not err on the side of compassion?

MRSA and Institutions

A few years ago I had MRSA. It took a couple of years to even figure out what was wrong with me. Since it was an ear infection -- that kept going, and going, and going, no one could determine what I "really" had. So many rounds of creams, antibiotics… and much pain.

Meanwhile, the school where I worked, had a few MRSA outbreaks. Also, the school district in general. We received an "official" notice from the district that, if we had MRSA, to notify the district. Which I did. I emailed the district, saying I had MRSA, and what was the next step. No reply, other than a "Oh, that's a good quesiont…" but nothing after that. Meanwhile, the district is closing down some schools in order to sanitize them, etc. Well…

After trips to the ER, various health providers, I went to a ENT specialist. He couldn't figure it out either. Back to the ER. And again. Finally, a nurse in the ER asked me if I had ever been swabbed for MRSA. I said I didn't think so. So she did, and, yep. I had MRSA. 

So back to this ENT guy. Who never had tested me for MRSA. I was furious, and frustrated, as I wrote him in a letter. He answered me, saying all kinds of CMA (covering my ass) excuses. Yeah.

I found it interesting that this same doctor is the "official" doctor for the district when it comes to hearing and other ear and sinus related issues. Hmm…
