Occupy Providence, which began last fall as part of a national movement, moved into Providence Place mall on Saturday. The Providence Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/qYXi8C) that the shopping center’s security workers detained protesters.
Bill Maher may be advising the Occupy movement to do a little bit more than stand around protesting, but in at least one corner of Long Island, he seems to be finding some resistance. These ten or so protesters could be found today in the Hamptons, continuing a protest movement that grew out of the Wall Street movement of last year.
The small Long Island town of Sag Harbor appears to currently be occupied by some protestors with homemade signs objecting to large corporate banks and reading “Occupy the East End,” expressing solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Occupy the Hamptons had gone strong until going on hiatus and reemerging in March, with the idea of targeting wealthy people by finding lists of people who dock their boats or vacation in the Hamptons. According to the leaders of the group:
The goal, Ms. Wenzel said in an interview last week, is to bring about positive change in a peaceful, respectful way. At the Occupy the Hamptons meeting two Sundays ago, a friendly reminder of that was distributed, stating that “Occupy the Hamptons is a non-partisan organization, tolerant of all, regardless of racial, religious, ethnic, or sexual orientation, and tolerant of divergent viewpoints.” Through group decision-making practices, local supporters work hard to be sure that they do not represent opinions that are not shared by all.

Flying Saucers and Science is a comprehensive look at the scientific
data on the flying saucer phenomenon. Nuclear physicist and lecturer
Stanton T. Friedman has distilled more than 40 years of research on
UFOs, and shares his work on a wide variety of classified advanced
nuclear and space systems. He answers a number of physics questions in
layman’s terms, and establishes that travel to nearby stars is within
reach without violating the laws of physics.
little known, far-out advanced propulsion systems, on some of which he
worked, are included. Friedman also presents data demonstrating the
ability to withstand high accelerations with some surprising results. He
clearly shows that government policy on this subject has been to
provide false, misleading claims and disinformation, and establishes
that the subject truly represents a Cosmic Watergate.
How are we going to fight these people? They have all the power.
Anyone who’s been subject to their abuses knows the citizen always loses.
For somerthing we only have small bits of information about, this sure is a huge leap of faith to claim.
How, could any one know this? For all we know, I am plannig an attack on the Olympics, but unless I told anyone (unlikely I would) then theirs no
possible way for you to know.
This is pure idiocracy.
EDIT: Elephants could PERHAPS rain from the sky under the right conditions.
What do you think!?
Yes, it seems to be true. Statistically, there is a greater chance that you will die on your birthday, than any of the other 364 days of the year:
It emerges that we are 14 per cent more likely to die on our birthday, according to new research based on a study of more than two million
The reasons for this higher-than-average birthday death rate are so far speculative. The (unusual) death rate increases with age, which I find odd. I
would assume that young people are more prone to kill themselves accidentally than old people, but then again I know little of how old people
celebrate their birthdays. Do they eat cake? Do they get pissed out of their heads and climb the balcony railing with a bottle of Jack Daniels in each
hand? Or… do they simply invite the wrong clown?
The researchers say there are two competing explanations for the phenomenon. The postponement theory suggests that seriously ill people can somehow
hold on until their birthday has passed, as they try to reach the milestone.
If this theory is valid and we can learn to control it, it will be of great value to humanity. Then we can plan that trip to Naples before our
pre-fixed death date.
Now I’m waiting for the study that shows how many people die in unusually higher numbers at other people’s B-day parties.
What could be Next?
Think it couldn’t happen? Just give it time. The government already claims it owns your land and house, effectively. If you really think you own your home, just stop paying property taxes and see how long you still “own” it. Your county or city will seize it and then sell it to pay off your “tax debt.” That proves who really owns it in the first place… and it’s not you!
Who owns your Body?
