San Diego 9/11 Truth Movement

The San Diego group for 9/11 truth is going strong. You can join at: HOME PAGE

They meet every second Sunday of the month:

Dwain Deets: Flight 93: A tale of two planes?

They also spread the truth by the USS Midway once a month.

“This is no ordinary band of street activists. San Diegans for 9/11 Truth includes an impressive group of experts who give one Sunday per month to freely share their collective knowledge on the subject. On hand were Dwain Deets, former NASA Chief of Aerospace Projects Director; Ret. Air Force Lt. Col. David Gapp, former crash site investigator; Ted Muga, former Naval aviator, retired Commander and retired Pan Am pilot; Jerry Bischoff, retired architect; and Ginger Gainer, retired American Airlines flight attendant and purser. Members of Veterans for Peace also provided support – including Vietnam and Iraq War vets.”

A Message for the Occupy Movement . . . Everywhere!

It occurred to me recently that reform is impossible with the people we have elected; obviously our government works for the 1%. One of the best candidates we have for president is Buddy Roemer (http://buddyroemer.com), but the system is so corrupt that they don’t allow him in the debates with one pretext or another; besides, the elections could be rigged. 

Therefore, I propose organizing a massive walk to Washington to ask for Obama’s  resignation. We elected him to work for us and instead he is working for the corporate oligarchy; it is our constitutional right to replace him at any time. They did it in Egypt. We can do it here!

We choose a date and depart from New York, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego to meet in Washington DC at another set date (we can use vehicles part of the way if necessary). By the time we get there, enlisting occupiers along the way, we should number on the thousands. And we occupy until we install a new president and replace the Federal Reserve System (a banking cartel that stole our government in 1913 – it is unconstitutional) See: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal … Reserve, by G Edward Grifffin.

It is paramount to do this because there is overwhelming evidence that 9/11 was an inside job (AE 9/11 Truth ) which means that our political system is so corrupt that it would be impossible to start our new country without cleaning house and bringing the guilty to justice. No system can exist long without justice . . . justice for all!

Besides, without a clean-up, an honest president would be thrown into a nest of vipers and his chances to survive would be slim. If you have any doubt that JFK was assassinated by the 1%, I suggest reading: JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters By James Douglass.

Native Americans should be invited to participate in this march as they have been immorally ignored and marginalized for too long. It is time for them to claim their right place in our society. We can learn much from their culture.

And we must keep in mind that the reason the 1% is in power is the apathy and lack of caring of the 99%. When we loose our virtue we are easy prey for vipers. It is a must to realize that everything is interconnected and we are all part of a Whole, and when we help others we help ourselves. What would the world be like if when we get up in the morning our first thought would be to help others. . . do unto others what is best for them?

That said, for the occupy movement failure is not an option, for if the movement fails the future is bleak indeed; what the corporate oligarchy is doing is not only serious, it is e v i l. We live under an ominous cloud at the moment.

Let’s get it done!

A Message for the San Diego Police Department

America’s Finest

A few days ago I stopped by the Western Division of the San Diego Police  Department. I wanted to show the officer in command a brochure about the evidence collected by AE 9/11 Truth, which is very much showing the buildings were brought down by explosives (controlled demolition).

After a wait that was promising to be long, I decided to leave a couple of brochures with the front desk officer. To my surprise she told me not to bother; they would be thrown in the trash. The officer in command had already seen them, and that was what he would do: throw them in the trash. I have met excellent police officers, and I know that most of them join the police force with the intention to serve justice. And I think the San Diego police should be a little more receptive to evidence that is sound. Ignoring the problem is not going to solve it. And this is a big problem.

Big changes are coming.  The people are awakening to the fact that if we don’t get rid of the criminals and warmongers controlling the economy right now, we will never have a prosperous world; we will become economic slaves; we will perish in endless wars. The police should be on our side, the side of justice.  In the name of justice, please check the evidence carefully and join us. It is the right thing to do. How many police officers died on 9/11? 23 officers of the NYPD and 37 Port Authority officers fell that day; 50 more police officers have died of related illnesses.  Over 300 firefighters died also.

Honor your oath!

What Happened to the YMCA? | Integrity, What is It? | Review

I used to be a fan of the YMCA; I was a member for years. Do you remember the 1978 song  by the Village People? “YMCA . . . YMCA . . .”

When I joined the YMCA in Florida around the year 2003, they assured me that the aerobics room was available to members as long as there wasn’t a class, or any other activity, in session. All members were welcomed to practice their stuff there. I used it regularly to dance.

When in 2006 I moved to San Diego from Texas (where I also used the aerobics room at the Y) I transferred my membership to the Mission Valley YMCA, where I also used the aerobics room until recently; until this lady (director?) came into the room, saw me dancing, and informed the employee in charge that I wasn’t allowed to use the room “unless there was an instructor present”; that was their policy.

To be honest, this happened once before at the La Jolla location, also in San Diego. At that location the woman was so rude and unprofessional when asking me to leave, that I wrote a letter to the director complaining, and explaining that the woman in question could be in need of professional help; she seemed to be psychologically disturbed in her unwarranted threatening behavior. Nothing was done other than the director explaining that it was a policy that they had to reconsider, and (to make it more puzzling) it had nothing to do with their liability because when a member joins the YMCA he signs a form exonerating the organization if an accident happens.

I also spoke to a member of the board of directors about the matter to no avail. But I did not worry about it because I stopped using that location due to loosing a job I had in the area. But when the problem resurfaced again at the Mission Valley location I decided to cancel my membership and go elsewhere. And that’s when I noticed a complete lack of integrity.

Integrity means honesty. But it has a special connotation; it refers also to wholesomeness. It refers to parts integrating with each other. In other words, you don’t say something today and then deny that you said it a couple of days later. That is a lack of integrity. I am explaining this here so if the YMCA comes in contact with this post they can learn what integrity is. After all, integrity is one of the things they are supposed to teach their young members.

Anyway, when I went to the office last month to cancel my membership, they offered me a less expensive membership assuming that money was the cause. But I explained that the cause for cancellation was not money but the fact that I wasn’t allowed to use the aerobics room. They proceeded then to cancel my membership and I left.

But it occurred to me after I left that since it took a month for them to cancel a membership (due to the fact that they were collecting directly from the bank, and needed to do the paperwork and submit the cancellation) maybe I could reduce my last month payment by downgrading my membership for the last month. I called them, talked to the same person, and he said that there was no problem. I stressed that the cancellation should still be effective at the end of the agreed time. They said there was no problem, the process wouldn’t interfere with my cancellation, but I had to go back to the office and fill another form. I did. And again I stressed that the cancellation was still to be effective on the due date. He agreed.

Are you guessing where this is going? When I checked my account they had withdrawn the regular fee. I went back to the office and talked to the same person again. He said he would check to see where the mistake was. He did. And with a straight face he called his boss. They said that the last form I had filled had enrolled me on the lower rate program, but it wouldn’t be effective until the following month.

I looked at them in disbelief. They both knew that I had canceled and why. They said again that what I had done was change my membership. I looked at both of them, told them that they weren’t being straight, and to please cancel my membership. There was nothing else to say really; they lacked integrity. I had to fill another cancellation form.

The names of any of the characters above are irrelevant; they represent the organization. And I ask you, how is the YMCA going to instill integrity in their members when they themselves don’t have any? How are they going to develop strong kids, strong families and strong communities? You know something else, I was a member at the Mission Valley location close to four years, and some staff members I never saw give a smile . . . to anyone.

I should have canceled that membership a long time ago.

Mahatma Gandhi once said referring to Christians . . . “They are so unlike the Christ”. Isn’t that true?

School of Guerrilla Arts

The Roots Factory

“Started earlier this year, the Roots Factory has grown exponentially in the short five months it’s been active. It hosts daytime, family-friendly events that teach attendees everything from screen-printing to DJing—all for free as part of its School of Guerilla Arts (donations are highly encouraged). There’s also spoken word, music events and more.

“We open the shop to the community and give kids and our friends a little hands-on in what it is that we do,” says Ana Brown, another founder and local artist. “It’s also a place for everybody to get together, and it’s all-ages. There’s kids, grandparents, moms—a little bit of everything.””
