See "Loose Change" and "An Inconvenient Truth"- * Truth to Power is the Path to Peace *

Take advantage of whatever 'wakes people up to the truth' that 9/11 was an INSIDE-JOB and that global warming is REAL. The time to awaken is NOW. People united in 'One Voice' have the power to change the World. United we have the power to create a paradigm-shift in consciousness. The choice is ours- we have FREEWILL. It all starts within your mind...so open it. "REVOLUTION" is only a 'thought' away.
Truth is the path to Peace
Truth is the path to Peace
You don't have to be a "fan" of the messenger or necessarily adhere to all of the views expressed within the 'medium' that is being used to convey the message. Whatever gets the message across. With the movie "Loose Change", it is the message that is important— **9/11 WAS AN INSIDE-JOB**. The sooner people REALIZE this the better. The more people the message reaches the better. Knowledge of this has the 'power' to change everything and alter the direction we are currently going.

I cannot claim to be a big fan of Al Gore (politicians/talking-heads/pawns in general), but this didn't stop me from seeing the movie "An Inconvenient Truth"- because it conveyed extremely valuable information that people "need to be aware of". At this point in time, with everything that's going on, and all that's at stake, we all must do our part in being proactive in educating ourselves to the best of our abilities. It's like a ripple-effect in the pond of consciousness— "attention and intention" directly influences our future. We need to become as awake to our 'REALITY' as we possibly can be, so we can work towards influencing others to wake up to the truth. This really is our only HOPE.

Don't rely on the mainstream-media for any real information because it's vile and unreliable. It is the mouthpiece for corporations, and is an extension of *those in power and control*. $$$ The MSM perpetuates the lies and tries to justify the actions of the global-elite (globalists). It's all about the money. $$$$$$$$$ That is what 'they' care about most, not the Earth.

Until some so-called 'perfect' 9/11 truth movie comes along which "everyone" agrees with and all people can rally behind (not gonna happen- the nature of the subject too controversial— even people within the truth-movement are at odds with one another on certain aspects), we will have to take what is available and offered to us 'movie-wise' and encourage others to take the time to see it. We need to utilize whatever tools and resources we can access in the pursuit of helping to make others aware. I appreciate people's intelligence to not be so malleable, void of free-thought that they instantly believe all information presented without following up, and taking the time to do considerable research and investigate whatever questions might be posed as a result of seeing the movie.

I encourage others to see "Loose Change". I think it offers a great deal of valuable information for people to research and draw their own conclusions on. If this movie raises questions in people's minds about the events of 9/11 then this is of great value— it has served its purpose. I see it as an effective tool (provides impetus) in opening the door to an expanded realization into all that is encompassed within the scope of 9/11. Who really benefited? Look where it has led us. How is 'FEAR' used to manipulate and control the population? 9/11 was the pretext/BIG LIE which led us into war- period. Think about what that means! It's the truth. . .deal with it. The so-called "war on terrorism" is a fraud. It is really the "war on our freedom"— fascism. How many more lives will be sacrificed before people wake the hell up?! It's all about imperialism— global domination at 'any' cost. Mostly in terms of loss of life, all the innocents who are subject to tyranny/totalitarianism and are considered acceptable casualties in these illegal, immoral wars based on LIES. How much death and destruction can people in good conscience tolerate??? Those in power have absolutely zero respect for life whatsoever. I hate them for what they are doing. They completely exploit and are destroying the Earth. How can people not stand up and speak out against the multitude of crimes being committed? Fate is what we create; it is now or never. Intuitively we all know this to be true. We feel it inside, deep within our very being. It is an inner calling. Spiritually speaking we are all ONE, and are one with the Earth which is calling out to us for help. How can we deny assistance to that which is everything to us? The time for 'denial' is past. We must wake up now.

I respect people who are making the conscious decision and effort to attempt to become enlightened to the reality we face, and are trying to make sense of what is 'really' going on. In this critical time we are living in, never underestimate the value of free-thought and the power of critical-thinking as the solution to solve the problems confronting us (as monumental as they are). They are not going away by themselves so we really have to wake up NOW. Keep making connections. I respect people's intelligence and freewill to research and explore to figure things out, and set things straight in their own minds. Let's all unite and try to inspire others to spread the word and work together to "MAKE TRUTH POPULAR"— since the masses are controlled by popular culture. Blah blah blah. . .I know, I 'rant' too much. So I have been told, anyway. Just see the movie "Loose Change" if you haven't already seen it. Also, see "An Inconvenient Truth"- we owe it to the World to "WAKE UP and CARE". It's the message that matters, not the messenger. TOGETHER WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE WORLD. There is strength in numbers. "Together We Stand. . .Divided We Fall."

* Use your voice as your weapon/tool of choice * * Speak Truth to Power *

"Don't rely on the mainstream-media for any real information because it's vile and unreliable. It is the mouthpiece for corporations, and is an extension of *those in power and control*."

Yes, this is very true. But please don't think that Al Gore is any different. He's a politician playing the same corporate game that all of them are required to play. I didn't trust him in 2000, and I still don't trust him. For real change to take place in the U.S., we will need a complete overhaul of the military-corporate domination of our country. I'm willing to bet that Al Gore is not up to the task.

Similar thoughts by others:

"The more I think about what's missing from Al Gore's global warming movie, the more annoyed I get.
Everybody and their activist friends are heralding the release of An Inconvenient Truth like it's the Save the World heard 'round the world. Climate change Web sites have added little message boxes linking to the movie's Web site, which mostly consists of self-promotion, but if you look close, includes a few factoids and a one-page handout explaining how you can save the world by turning off the lights...."


"Gore and Clinton capitulated to the demands of Western Democrats and yanked from its initial budget proposals a call to reform grazing, mining, and timber practices on federal lands. When Clinton convened a timber summit in Portland, Oregon, in April 1994, the conference was, as one might expect, dominated by logging interests. Predictably, the summit gave way to a plan to restart clear-cutting in the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest for the first time in three years, giving the timber industry its get rich wish. Gore, again, said nothing.

Forests under Clinton and Gore's watch didn't fare all that well. The Clinton administration's Salvage Rider, known to radical environmentalists as the "Logging without Laws" rider, was perhaps the most gruesome legislation ever enacted under the pretext of preserving ecosystem health."

'In Plane Sight' is actually a better film. Definitely more powerful and disturbing. That's my review anyway.

Here's another laughable and sad example from 09.Jul.2006 13:32

big Al's self-absorbed movie

Does anyone really think that the following simplistic, feel-good tips will avoid our dire global warming crisis? Does anyone really think that by "Avoiding just 10 miles of driving every week" will, in any way, solve this crisis?

Al Gore's movie, and these tips from his website, are for the fossil fuel-burning addicts who think they can change the global warming crisis by making a few minor adjustments in their lifestyles and following these simple-minded ideas... You lose again Al Gore!


Almost one third of the carbon dioxide produced in the United States comes from our cars, trucks and airplanes. Here are some simple, practical things you can do to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide you produce while on the move.

Reduce the number of miles you drive by walking, biking, carpooling or taking mass transit wherever possible.

Avoiding just 10 miles of driving every week would eliminate about 500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions a year! Click here to find transit options in your area.

Start a carpool with your coworkers or classmates. Sharing a ride with someone just 2 days a week will reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by 1,590 pounds a year. eRideShare.com runs a free national service connecting commuters and travelers.

Keep your car tuned up.

Regular maintenance helps improve fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. When just 1% of car owners properly maintain their cars, nearly a billion pounds of carbon dioxide are kept out of the atmosphere.

Check your tires weekly to make sure they're properly inflated. Proper inflation can improve gas mileage by more than 3%. Since every gallon of gasoline saved keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, every increase in fuel efficiency makes a difference!


how much is enough? 09.Jul.2006 21:21

dogged dogma

Even if all citizens cut the emissions in our personal lives to ZERO, the US would still be one of the largest emitters of CO2. Non-personal use is something like 2/3 of the US total. So we need to act, yes, true, but we need to also demand regulation of industry and reform of our society. No more food from the East Coast. No more frivolous purchases of throw-away items.

In a nutshell 11.Jul.2006 11:11


Basically, we went to war for oil on lies so that we could destroy the world with our gluttonous ways and over consumption of resources. To uphold our lifestyle. Great. Have a nice day. ( :

People deserve the 'truth', in all areas of inquiry. 11.Jul.2006 19:22


Whatever helps people to put the pieces together to get a more complete view of the "Big Picture" is a plus— and by this, I'm not talking about any 'one single film'. Recognize the "big screen" which is so 'popular' within mainstream-society, as a means to educate people on a broader scale. Rather than just seeing it a means for 'mindless entertainment'- which generally it is for the most part.

My point with writing this article was not to just 'preach to the choir', obviously if you are a person who reads/views independent and alternative media, you are more well informed than the average person is. The only way for anything to actually change though, is for 'messages of truth' to be hopefully embraced as self-evident by a much larger audience base and accepted into the "popular culture mind-set" - general public.

My goal was not to do an advertisement for 'Al Gore'. I already stated I wasn't a fan of his. Global Warming is a reality though. You'd be surprised at the number of people who know 'absolutely nothing' about it. If "An Inconvenient Truth" wakes more people up to it, I see that as a good thing and of value. No?

If another movie (without Al Gore) was making the rounds within the 'theater circuit'- one which was effectively relating the facts about global warming, I assure you I would be promoting 'that one' instead.

With the movie "Loose Change", I was encouraging people to see it because of its showing recently in the theater. Once again, the big-screen has a fair amount of 'power' in making a larger impression for some people. Some people 'new to the subject' of 9/11 Truth may be more inclined to see the movie if it's playing in a theater. I hope that more 9/11 truth movies will be playing in theaters in the near future.

Knowledge of what really happened on September 11, 2001 and concern for exposing the truth should be the top priority for people. 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB: everything else is a Distraction. I believe that with the right amount of FOCUS, people have the 'power' and 'potential' to achieve anything.



Today is R. Buckminster Fuller's Birthday. 12.Jul.2006 14:39


*Fuller coined the phrase - "Spaceship Earth".

*Famous quotes by him -

"Either war is obsolete or men are."

"War is the ultimate tool of politics."

"Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes, vastly ambitious individuals who had become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery."

"If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Each one of us could make the difference."

"Either you're going to go along with your mind & the truth, or you're going to yield to fear & custom & conditioned reflexes."

"With our minds alone we can discover those principles we need to employ to convert all humanity to success in a new, harmonious relationship with the universe."

We have the option to make it.

Thanks Bucky!
