Police, Corporate Media Disappointed by Lack of Violence During Unpermitted May Day “March
Proof the cops have too much money. You might call it the world's shortest march. You might call it a real-life trolling of the police state. Both the police and the corporate media had learned of this event via social media... just as we had intended. Unfortunately, we weren't there to sate their desire for tragedy, but rather, to have a conversation as concerned citizens. Corporate media reporters, descending on the scene in expectation of a replay of last year's police violence, kept asking, "When is something going to happen?"

The Shockingly High Rank of Fluorides among Toxins
The most telling case against fluoridation I've ever seen was a table of toxicity expressed in grams-to-kill. A toxicity table is the science in a nutshell. Fluoride compounds show a shockingly high status when ranked among other poisons. Grams-to-kill is a striking metric. The toxicity table shows that fluorosilicic acid, the chemical mandated for Portland, is five times more toxic than mercury, nine times more toxic than arsenic, and 27 times more toxic than lead. Toxicologists Gerald Judd and Paul Corbett. The value of toxicology in the campaign message. "In healthy Portland, Healthy kids drink fluorosilicic acid."

Elevated risk of false flag terror event
Consider taking Friday off and heading east into the mountains to build the season's last snowmen; or, head to the forests and go camping and fishing for a long weekend. You have an excuse to do something fun. Given Monday's events---what appears are likely staged false flag terror operations in Boston---one could extrapolate a pattern and guess that a follow up staged event is very possible this week. In my estimate there is roughly a 1/200 chance something may go down here around Patriot's day this Friday, or close to it, this weekend. This is only a ballpark estimate and the risk could be higher, especially considering that traces of ricin have been showing up the mail recently (google "ricin mail"), april 15-16, 2013.
