Vaccinate Against “Avian Flu,” or Refuse Dangerous Inoculation?

2009-09-30 - Vaccinate Against 'Avian Flu,' or Refuse Dangerous Inoculation

Sara: I refuse a man-made vaccine for a man-made illness!

Kathleen M.: Prove to me that it is man-made, that the idea isn’t just another conspiracy theory, and I might consider listening to you. The vaccine isn’t any worse than the regular flu shot. Yes, you get a little buggy from it, but most healthy people are not going to die from it. What advantage does it give the government to kill or seriously impair most of their taxpayers?

I’m all for holistic medicine, but most of these guys are just quacks.

In the end, just because something is a vaccine does not make it “man-made.” We do not have the understanding to alter genetics of something as complicated as a virus to get a specific result.

Rayn: Good post, Sara! Since March of this year, when Baxter International almost caused a worldwide pandemic after it shipped vaccines contaminated with deadly avian flu to 18 different countries, I’ve been warning others about a concerted effort by certain pharmaceutical corporations to infect the entire populace with a deadly virus under the pretext of a “vaccination program.” I’ve also talked about the dangers of taking any type of vaccination for the “swine flu,” or allowing the government to implement any mass vaccination program using the help of these particular companies, whether in the name of “the public good,” or under the pretense of a pandemic.

Hundreds of 9/11 First Responders Die of Cancer

2009-09-11 - Hundreds of 9-11 First Responders Die of Cancer


Hundreds of First Responders Die of Cancer:

(RussiaToday) – New York’s emergency services were among the first on the scene of the 9/11 disaster but put their personal safety in jeopardy. Those involved in the rescue and clean-up operation quickly became national heroes.

But now 85 per cent of them are suffering from lung diseases which they say were caused by the huge clouds of dust. Those people are now calling on the state for medical support.

So far the US government has refused to help.

My Commentary: Today, I lament the great loss of life on this day in history… I am also saddened by the fact that our gov’t has turned a blind eye to the many WTC first responders & clean-up crewmen now suffering & dying as a result of exposure to deadly toxins at Ground Zero.

For this, we can thank the Bush Administration, along with the EPA, and their head, Christie Whitman, who falsely declared the lead and asbestos-filled air in lower Manhattan as “safe.”

Hip-Hop, Commercialism and the Female Emcee

The following post was originally published by fellow emcee, AtLas’, in the forum section of

The rare and deadly female emcee

The rare and deadly female emcee

“Why is there a perceived lack of female emcees in Hip-Hop? People are always asking where the ladies are in Hip Hop. I happen to know of a few places where you can find us. However, when the question is posed, I have to wonder, do they only mean the female emcees? There doesn’t seem to be a lack of female dj’s or b-girls, so why emcees? I have my own thoughts, but I’m interested to know yours.”

In response to AtLas’ questions, I wrote the following elaborate reply. However, I chose not to publish it at because I determined it to be inappropriately lengthy…

In response to your first question, asking why there is a “perceived” lack of female emcees in the game right now, especially when compared with DJs and B-Girls, the answer is complex. We must start, first, by realizing (and admitting) that today’s Hip-Hop music has been completely compromised by the corrupted Corporate oligarchy known as the “Music Industry.” In essence, Hip-Hop is a vehicle, driven by struggle, towards empowerment, using the fuel of expression. And, though the genre began underground, it was not until it was picked up by the mainstream that it became a worldwide sensation. And, as the gatekeepers of all radio play, and the holders of all major record labels, for many years, the Music Industry has usurped authority over the entire Hip-Hop music scene. Record executives have worked hard to convert the emcee into a “product,” to be sold in a commercially-driven market. The Industry has, in effect, removed most of the heart and soul from Hip-Hop music, and replaced it with the sort of shallow, fickle, fad-based, formula-dependent “pop” culture that draws teenyboppers to the market en mass, eager to purchase the latest, most popular album available. Where Hip-Hop once had substance, it now has image. The content and message of lyrics have taken a backseat to swag, flow and “a good beat.” Most of today’s radio emcees no longer represent the streets, or the struggle. Instead, they simply represent the Corporate interests of their record label masters. These types of sellout emcees – motivated primarily by money – serve as “useful idiots” to the Industry, because they are ready, willing and able to completely, hypocritically “brand” themselves to fans in order to increase sales. From where I stand, today’s mainstream Hip-Hop music more resembles a high school popularity contest than an actual form of art.
