Das Bier ist Gut, Ja!?

So in the scheme of things, those of us who enjoy a high class beer, will ultimately endeavor to get a few free sips in whenever we can.

Just so happens, today was one of those days, with a lot of free Hops, IPA's, Burnt and Barley Ales to go around, with a little bit of Belgian style dashed in for good measure.

Malloy's of Lisle, IL, (Also in Naperville, IL and Glen Ellyn, IL) definitely outdid themselves this time around with a Great Beer tasting this afternoon. (Malloy's however loses points for lacking an option on their site to browse there Beer collection.)

With 5 tables and more than 10 Breweries represented, it was a spectacular taste extravaganza!

The first table I tried had the Cider Beers, which I have always had a slight liking to, but I had only found the best to be Hornsby's; but Hornsby's was although good a bit strong, so finding the Woodchuck, a brand otherwise brewed by Green Mountain Cidery; I tried their 'Limited Release' Winter Ale, which was a light apple cider with all the kick of a well made Beer. It was pleasant to taste, (not heavy or strong like many of the others), and going down it held no surprises; with it tasting very much like a smooth Apple juice with a hint of oak. I personally think I have found my new Hard Cider of Choice.
Definitely something to try if you have never had a Hard Cider before or if you like fruity beers, and for a good review read here.

Next table held Shiner Brewery's finest, but the one I was most interested in after tasting was their Bohemian Black Lager (Schwarzbier), it has between 4.7 and 5.0% Alchol per Volume, but is a collection of roasted malts and hops, adding to the wonderful entourage of "Burnt Biers" that I and my Beer fellows enjoy so much. It was a smooth Roasted beer that went down well and would go well with probably a hickory smoked steak or a good steak in general. It is a Shiner, Texas Based Local Brewery that has been serving the U.S. since 1909, and they only brew in Shiner, TX so if you do happen to like there beers you know that there will not be any degradation in their brewing process and that you will only receive the finest that they can brew. Bohemian Black comes in at a low 4.9% Alc/Vol, and could even be considered a Light Roasted Lager, and if you are into Roasted Beers, It would be a great filler or to even throw back a bunch without having to worry about which way is up. Ratebeer.com has it at a pretty low average rating of 2.98 out of 5.0, with a score currently of 45, this I find to be a surprise, but Roasted beers are for select pallets anyway.

The third table was a cross selection of Fine Belgian Champagne beers and a few other fine brewery's, but what I came away with that was of great taste where the Hops based Beers; the first I enjoyed was a Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale by Anderson Valley Brewing out of Mendocino California. It was everything I expected from a fine Hops crazy Beer, Not as strong as the tasty Lagunitas Hop Stuupid, (a 4.17 rating out of 5; A-, from Beeradvocate.com), or As amazing as Stone Brewing Co.'s Arrogant Bastard, (a 3.92 out of 5 rating with a 99 score), but will definitely please your pallet with its medium Hops taste and smooth overall tones. Winter Solstice comes in at a middle-high 6.9% Alc/Vol but will not get you so terribly drunk that you are too wasted to enjoy anything else. Ratebeer.com has it at a well to do rating of 3.46 out of 5.0, with a score currently of 91, this rating fits my perception of the beer for sure, and should be of no surprise for a fine quality as it is.

I did not walk away with it but I did yet enjoy the fine and smooth quality of this one Bourbon Beer called Brothers' Reserve Barrel Aged Brrrbon by Widmer Brothers,(They took their winter seasonal 'Brrr' and aged it in single use Kentucky bourbon barrels); I am not a huge Bourbon fan, even though I do enjoy a good Scotch, Whiskey or Rum. Yet this Bourbon beer mix is such a compliment and with its slight vanilla and its heavy oak barrel tones it definitely is drinkable and quite tasty. At first smell it was all Bourbon, but upon tasting it was so very much more and the Bourbon is a light compliment to everything else in the beer. Ratebeer.com has it at a great rating of 3.49 out of 5.0, with a score currently of 93, So if your in the line for a Bourbon toned beer coming in at a high 9.4% Alc/Vol, this one is great because it is a harmony of tastes and not displeasing at all.

I also took a try at some Belgian Champagne Beer, there where two, (Brouwerij Bosteels & Brouwerij de Landtsheer both utilize parts of the "méthode Champenoise" used by Champagne producers in France.), but the One that I enjoyed and well remember was by Brouwerij Bosteels and it was their Deus Brut des Flandres; a little odd at first, trying a 'Real' Champagne of Beer , (not a High Life definitely), but by the second taste it was definitely something you could pass off as Champagne to the unwise and was very tasty, so if your willing to spend around $30.00 it will be a good toasting beer that will liven up most any party!

The next one that caught my eye was Old Horizontal (Barleywine Style Ale) by Victory Brewery out of Downington Pennsylvania; which is by the way their only Brewing location.
I generally am not to big a fan of barley ale's, but occasionally I come across one that really jumps out and grabs hold like this one. It has a fruitier tone than Hops drinkers are used to, with possibly either coriander and or cloves involved in the process but it was well liked by me and gets a high rating in my book for a Barley based ale. Old Horizontal comes in at a heavy 11% Alc/Vol and will be the highlight at almost any party for the refined Beer drinker for sure. Ratebeer.com has it at an amazing rating of 4.02 out of 5.0, with a score currently of 100, this is no doubt a fine and taste defining beer, and also should be of no surprise for a fine quality as it is.

The 5th table was Wine, and looked to be very respectable wine as well, but I do not like to mix beer's and wine, so sadly I did not make an attempt this time.

Now I will mention 2 beers that were not available at Malloy's for tasting but deserve a notable mention anyway.

They come from Two Brothers Brewery out of Warrenville, IL; the first I ever tried and is my favorite to this day is Cane & Ebel; and as they say 'it is so good you should give it a whack!' Sacrilege, yes I know, but if this is what Sacrilege tastes like then so be it! Ratebeer.com has it at a great 3.63 out of 5 with a score of 96, and I believe that with 7% Alc/Vol this Red Rye beer really quenches your taste buds!

The next is also from Two Brothers, and is at the lower end of the high rating scale at 3.22 out of 5 with a score of 73 on Ratebeer.com, the Bitter End is a great IPA and is full of different malts and hops that makes a very clean and tasty brew!

So if you are in the market for some new beers take a stab at these, for at least one of these I am sure will stand to please!

Liberty Is Rusting

Liberty Is Rusting

By the dawn’s early light I see the stripes running red
Is this our last Twilight under our rusting sovereignty
Our glory reflected in a muddy vein of black gold
O’er the land of the enslaved and the home of the Police state
Our blood is awash with polluted ideology that has us sold.

What happened to the Freeman and our Just cause
While war’s desolation has entered our homes, our spirit
We take refuge in our dreams of the American past
Wishing this would all just go away, far away from our Land
Havoc of war and confusion are slowly ripping us in half

For Patriot’s voice and spacious skies so beautiful
For Natives lost and Sins unredeemed
Our Life, Liberty, and Eminent Domain
Are trampled on by the most traitorous, treacherous
Will our Creator forgive our impudence and hate

America, America, our Republic bleeds from the inside
Our grace is lost; crying and is echoing from sea to shining sea
Where is our brotherhood that brought us such goodness
Our immigrant’s blood, sweat and tears are met now with strife
Greed and contempt for Liberty has tainted our nobleness

Thine alabaster cities dreary, dimmed by the tears of lost hope
Our Patriot dream sees our Liberty is rusting away
Will we not mend ev’ry flaw and bring Liberty back in Law
Will we not see what all our heroes’ dead had seen
Can we not be impassion’d for the hope and future they saw

FFFUUUUUUU!!! Go out an buy one today!!!

Well 4Chan had done it again, except this time on a massive and unprecedented scale, even for them.

It really is amazing how many idiotic persons inhabit this world to pull off and support an internet campaign such as turning their own creation of the Rage/Race Guy, into a racist element just so they could keep it for themselves. Attacking Hot Topic for selling popular culture, that is like attacking the military for using weapons, or Zoos for holding animals, or peanut and butter sandwiches for having peanut butter on them; it is indeed ludicrous!

[It is no wonder the World Elitists want to destroy everyone but themselves, but that is a misnomer; what they really are after is....]

So I left a post about it on Facebook where I normally keep to myself and stay away from such behavior; but this time around I actually decided I needed to defend the Corporation over some scrupulous individuals, who retained no copyright, and have yet to produce one. Because the element here is not about stealing, it is about arrogance and that arrogance's desire to retain control over something that is popular to them and not let anyone else have it, in a most selfish way possible. Hot Topics only real crime is charging too much for many items they sell, other than that they had every right to take a popular iconic figure and turn it into a profit. There was no copyright so it is free game according to current laws.

So without further ado, here is my original Facebook Post; transcribe here for your eye scraping:

[Hot Topic was just doing its part as it always does, selling popular culture. The fact that they happened upon 4chan popular culture was only natural for the Company. Though they may not have known that some of the biggest bigots, racists, and leud personalities inhabit the 4chan culture, more than many people know, (this is not to say all of them are, just a good cross section).
If anyone has ever stepped foot into 4chan and seen or participated in almost any conversation, many of those turn out to be 'flame' sessions, where every possible derogatory name and comment can possible be fit within a sentence or paragraph is. So it is no surprise to me and many others that members of the 4chan community would take such an extreme measure to associate one of there creations with racism, just so that they could keep it for themselves, even if it pollutes the original image forever in the minds of the rest of the masses.
the 'fffuuuuuuu' character was just an expression of the most blatant raw emotion for use in any situation calling for blatant raw emotion. That at least is my opinion of it, from the many cartoons and statements i had seen on 4chan in the years past. This just proves what we already new about a sub-section of 4chan culture, that there is an arrogant sub-class that only feeds on elevating their personal rants and raves to the level of "gods', and that any use of their particular language/art/sub-culture by the uninitiated and unaccepted is to them a most vile attack on their person; as we have seen by their unwarranted albeit ludicrous attack on Hot Topic.

I want to thank Hot Topic, for continuing on in the Free Market Principle; to make money off of things that are considered popular, and for being a bastion for things that we would have a hard time finding in any other way in many places.

It is just sad that a few had to make it ugly for the rest of us.
If it were just a matter of copyright infringement, than that is what should have been brought to the table, not that "devious" attack on an industry that mainly profits from popular and iconic items.

A little scraping insight into the world of 4chan: http://the-doomsday-machine.blogspot.com/2008/10/quick-guide-to-4chan-terminology.html
This isn't by far the worst, but some may still be offended so be warned.
And for the extremely Uninitiated; a Wiki: http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/4chan.
]

But the article that seems to sum it up is of course right here @ http://www.geekosystem.com/hot-topic-ends-fffuuuuuuu-shirts/
So now that this can no longer be unread and undone in your mind, I bid you farewell, until we meet again!

Veterans Day 2010

So this post comes late this day because I have been working all day and this is the first I have been able to look at my Computer.

Today, the 11th of November, 2010; is Veterans Day here in the United States of America.

It is were we Honor and celebrate all those who have served and defended our country in Peacetime and in War.

Some Vets this year expressed how they were the reluctant soldier, while others volunteered for service, but they were all happy to have defended our Country, and many were surprised at the turn outs and the love shared by their fellow Americans this day.

I have been a supporter of our service Men and Women since I was a kid; I have not always agreed with the police actions, battles, skirmishes and wars we have and are involved in; but that I believe should never undermine the service and selfless actions of those who defend our Country.

My Grandfather on my Moms Side served in the Air Force as a SF during the Korean War, My 2 Great Uncles on my Mother's side also served, between the Korean War and the Viet-Nam Conflict; One was a Paratrooper in the Army and other was a Marine.

My Grandfather on my Father's side was too young for WWII and my Father's draft card never was called during the Viet-Nam Conflict.

My Step-Father Served in the Marines during the late 70's and early 80's on the Flight deck of an Aircraft carrier.

I tried to get into the Air National Guard when I was 17 going on 18, but there was no major war and I got a very nice refusal letter, (which I still have), from some Lt. Col stating how they appreciated my enthusiasm, but I was too young.

I tried for the Air Force when I was 18, but right before I was allowed to sign my life away to Uncle Sam, the Air Force Doctors denied me because of my past health issues with Asthma, which had not caused me any serious issues since Feb. 9th of 1991.

Sept. 10th, 2001, I went to bed having mostly convinced myself to sign up for the Air Force again, but after I awoke on the 11th, I wasn't to keen on fighting a land war in Asia. Besides I had a good job at the time and I was supporting Service Men and Women in other ways and I figured I would continue to do so.

My brother serves in the U.S. Army now, He is in post training for his job, and he is a couple months out of Boot Camp; he went right in after High School Graduation.

I and my family are very proud of him and the other Family members who have served.

I am also very proud of all those who have served this great Country, from the Colonial Wars with Britain through the Conflicts of today.

So if you do anything today, or even at any point in the future, Thank a Soldier, Thank a Veteran, Thank them for their selfless act of putting their life on the line for our Freedoms.

Buy them a drink, help out at a your local VFW, visit interned Vet's at your local VA, They have done the dirty work so we can enjoy the things that we do everyday.

I was out on Oct. 6th with a family member and a friend, and I saw a Marine, he is a regular at the place we went to and has served for 5 years so far.

So I went up to him and thanked him for serving our country and I and my friend each bought him a drink. He in turn thanked us for being so gracious and supportive.

Now just buying a drink isn't enough, but to receive a Thank You when there are still so many who spit on the Soldiers and curse them for their service, means a lot to many of them.

So thank you everyone who have and do serve to protect the way of life we have here in the United States of America!

Happy Veterans Day!

Missle Launch? off the Coast of California!

The Infallible Military leaders might as well just say;

‘Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and refracted the light from Venus.’

Initial reports from this morning, stated that it might have been a Missile launch off the coast of California Monday Evening, although NORAD, the Pentagon and other Officials remained relatively quiet on what it was, except that they did not pick up any such launch on their systems. (Making a mention of Tomahawk missiles and how the vapor trail of the mystery is too large, failing in this report to highlight that ICBM Trident Missiles have a similar Vapor trail to what we see in the video).

As of sometime after 12pm today, (11/10/2010), Officials are stating it is an airliner and not a missile; however this line seems to be coming only from top military and government officials, while everyone else is concerned that that is not necessarily the case.

The one thing I have yet to see or hear anyone relate to us is, showing the many videos of ICBM missile launches to compare the Vapor trails and or recounting any previous reports of vapor trails such that resemble this current one, if it is really an Airplane or Airliner Vapor Contrail.

The question is begged, if this is an Airplane, this event would be common for planes coming into and out of LAX and would happen on a regular basis, (or for any airport in the U.S. for that matter). Is this a common event? And if so why would seasoned news reporters report it as an unknown factor, assuming that it could be a missile?

I have watched many a plane fly overhead, take off and land at airports; I live by two major airports, both of which are near a large body of water, (O’Hare Int’l Airport and Midway Airport, both near Lake Michigan), and during parts of the year the Chicago, IL area has similar conditions that would be found by L.A., and I have yet to see any vapor contrails look like the one in the Nov. 8 2010 L.A. video below:



The U.S. Military has in the past had test missiles launched to show military might against the Soviets during the cold war.

As excerpted from CBS; Former U.S. NATO Ambassador Robert Ellsworth Explains:

KFMB showed video of the apparent missile to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth, who is also a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, to get his thoughts.
…"It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile"…
Ellsworth urged American to wait for definitive answers to come from the military.

When asked, however, what he thought it might be, the former ambassador said it could possibly have been a missile test timed as a demonstration of American military might as President Obama tours Asia.

"It could be a test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine … to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we can do that," speculated Ellsworth.

Ellsworth said such tests were carried out in the Atlantic to demonstrate America's power to the Soviets, when there was a Soviet Union, but he doesn't believe an ICBM has previously been tested by the U.S. over the Pacific.


NOTAM had put out a warning to pilots to stay clear of the area where the mystery missile occurred:

NOTAM for LA.
KZLA LOS ANGELES A2832/10
– THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS ARE REQUIRED DUE TO NAVAL AIR WARFARE CENTER WEAPONS DIVISION ACTIVATION OF W537. IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY, ALL NON-PARTICIPATING PILOTS ARE ADVISED TO AVOID W537. IFR TRAFFIC UNDER ATC JURISDICTION SHOULD ANTICIPATE CLEARANCE AROUND W537 AND CAE 1176. CAE 1155 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. CAE 1316 & CAE 1318 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. CAE 1177 WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. W537 ACTIVE, CAE 1176 CLOSED. SURFACE – FL390, 09 NOV 20:00 2010 UNTIL 10 NOV 01:00 2010. CREATED: 08 NOV 20:52 2010


As seen here and here.

NOTAM report A2832/10 is missing from the KZLA notice list on NOTAM’s website: (You can go to https://www.notams.jcs.mil/dinsQueryWeb/ and scroll to the bottom and click on KZLA and then Click on view notices to see all the notices).

There is a new notice for Nov 15th-16th 2010, with similar warnings as the above noticed.

*Although The date stamp for the original notice don’t seem to match up with the Monday evening ‘launch’, people are reading them as local time and all NOTAM is released in GMT Zulu; which for L.A. would be there Local time -8:00. Of course it is always possible that the report time was modified, and as it can no longer be found in the notices on their website; this gives more credence to a cover-up.*

What is NOTAM, You ask? It is a quasi-acronym for a "Notice To Airmen".

Here is another limited known fact; Submarines and also their missile launches are harder, (though not impossible), to detect during Geomagnetic storms. But Space Weather.com shows for Nov. 8th 2010 B-Class flares and Geomagnetic storms are shown for Mid-Latitudes to be a probability of only 10 % (K4 or Less Active type storm), for Nov.8 2010.

Their main page article titled "MYSTERY MISSILE" LAUNCH: for Nov. 10 2010, expresses they are an authority on mis-identified contrails, but have fallen in step with the rest of the Bureaucrats and Officials and said that they are unsure what it is.

So a Geomagnetic storm may or may not have had any real effect in the supposed lack of awareness by our Defense Departments.

In the end, if it is an Airplane, I guess we will have to re-evaluate our years of understanding on Vapor trails. If it really is a missile, then we are going to be force served whatever it is they want us to swallow.

But whatever is going on, it suspiciously occurred as President Obama visits asia, (8 days, 4 in China); just like the “coincidence’ that Bombs were found on planes heading for the U.S. right before the Mid-term Elections.

ICBM missiles being fired; notice the similarity in the vapor trails including the concentric ripples caused by the Missiles spinning to adjust trajectory, (called Roll Maneuvers).

Japan; Some Things never change

We may know Japan for its Anime, Sushi-Sashimi, Geisha's, The Famous or Infamous Rising Sun Flag, But less know about the continuous threat of panty-thieves that has been ongoing for close to a thousand years.

This obsession, mainly by males seems peculiar and a bit aberrant to many Westerners, but the closest representation of it would be the 'Peeping-Tom', though some of you may remember some older college movies that incorporated a mixture of peepin-tom's and panty thievery.

Either way here is a new case brought to us by Weird Asia News, in the form of a 54 year old Panty-thief.

But Japan isn't all panty raiding, they tend toward the, dare I say, 'Cute side', especially when concerning safety; as we see here from Pink Tentacle.

Have a great Day everyone!

R. William Holzkopf Jr.

As a reflection of ourselves

Momentous occurrences have and are transpiring, We have just imbued power to new Persons, who promise certain affects to our rule of law, taxes or the lack thereof; our freedoms, rights and also to the delegation of such.

Many more people are said to have gone out in vote this past November the 2nd, than in many years past.

Much to do with frustration, but also contemplation and pride for ones ideals and future within this Great Country of ours.

Now many theories, some fallen to conspiracy have been abound, many for many years as well. However, whether they hold to truth or to false pretenses is up for conjecture, but what is important is that may U.S. Citizens whether, denoting self to one party of the other, or just voting conscience; have made statement that they; We, know that corruption is rampant in many areas of our leadership and governing body and that we were; are trying to effect change by our Right to a non-violent revolution known as a vote.

I am proud of the Many Americans who voted their conscience whether they voted opposite to me or in likeness. For now we have a large number of new individuals of whom will begin this new set and form of Public Service to the Citizens of the United States of America.

Yet we must remind ourselves that we have had many changes in the past to see only the same actions by different faces and names with different party affiliations. With the insidious nature prevalent among some if not many of our Leaders and officials, who speak in serpent tongue to disguise the nature of their true business.

And that only by daily education of ourselves, and persistent policing of our Public Servants may we eventually find a breath of honesty and virtue among those who serve our interests.

Alexander Hamilton wrote specifically about such deprecating events that could harm our Society in the first Federalist Papers, writing;

"A torrent of angry and malignent passions will be let loose. To judge from the conduct of the opposite parties, we shall be led to conclude that they will mutually hope to envice the justness of their opinions, and to increase the number of their converts by the loudness of their declamations and the bitterness of their invectives. An enlightened zeal for the energy and efficiency of government will be stigmatized as the offspring of a temper fond of despotic power and hostile to the principles of liberty.

An over-scrupulous jealousy of danger to the rights of the people, which is more commonly the fault of the head than of the heart, will be represented as mere pretense and artifice, the stale bait for popularity at the expense of the public good.

It will be forgotten, on the one hand, that jealousy is the usual concomitant of love, and that noble enthusiasm of liberty is apt to be infected with a spirit of narrow and illiberal distrust.

On the other hand, it will equally be forgotten that the vigor of government is essential to the security of liberty, that, in the contemplation of a sound and well -informed judgment, their interest can never be separated; and that a dangerous ambition often lurks behind the specious[Superficial/Deceptive] mask of zeal for the rights of the people than under the forbidden appearance of zeal for the firmness and efficiency of government.

History will teach us that the former has been found a much more certain road to the introduction of despotism than the latter, and that of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying an obsequious[dutiful] court[Pay Homage to; Seek favor of] to the people; commencing demagogues[A leader who obscures, distorts or incites the emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people.], and ending tyrants."

This essentially translates into modern English as 'There will be parties and persons who will try and waver your opinion and virtue by inciting and or manipulating emotions and bitterness, by bringing up the passions, beliefs and or prejudices of the Citizenry so to make them riled about their Rights and Liberties; and it is in this way that one can take away those Rights and Liberties more so than doing the same by just trying to incite for or against the stable and efficient function of government.'

These are powerful and well educated words that should be well adhered to every day that we are alive, because Tyranny and Criminals never sleep and that is why no matter our affiliation, we need to be ever vigilant to protect our Life, Liberty, and Eminent Domain.

Soviet Dreariness

This will be a very uncommon thing here at KenjaNoSekkyoudan, but I have encountered a Life Changing scenario that I had not expected, not that we can really foresee such things.
Essentially a promise was broken, a bond was shattered, I had a momentary lapse of reason due to some disagreeable data and an old friendship will probably now be forever forsaken.

So friends and followers forgive this out-of-place post:

Soviet Dreariness

Here in this Soviet dreariness
I begin to laugh out loud
But I'm really crying in lament
For my Baby who thinks I'm a lout

With gray colored sky's
And cold and frigid nights
Although my thoughts are with me
I may go insane under these harsh lights

She said some things, and
I said some things, but
Because a promise was broken
I used words that would cut

My compassion momentarily forgotten
I slammed Thor's Hammer down like a Banshee
But Loki's revenge is a cruel thing
And now I cry silently in my anxiety

As Sunlight rages into Night
And though I shed these tears
Nothing seems to relieve this grief
For she will not care to hear.

Also;

Do you want a Private Search Engine?
Do you want to NOT have your searches and identity logged and put on a 'List'?
Do you want Criminals getting your data?
It is YOUR & MY Right to have Anonymity and Privacy if we so choose, But people like the Former Novell CEO & Sun Micro Systems CTO, now CEO of Google Eric Schmidt does not think so:

"Every time you use a regular search engine, your search data are recorded.
Your search terms, the time of your visit, the links you choose, your IP address and your User ID cookies all get stored in a database.

The identity profiles that can be constructed from this cloud of information represent modern day gold for marketers.
But government officials, hackers and even criminals also have an interest in getting their hands on your personal search data.
And sooner or later they will...

THE Greens and Earther's and the Plot to Rule Mankind

Now not every group or person out there is in fact plotting to destroy Mankind, however many blindly follow those that do.

I have been working at formulating a list of many of the Green and Earth First Organizations out their and which ones seem genuine in approach and funding, and which ones have either Corporate or Billionaire Backing.

My List is not complete and will not be seen in this article; But I wanted to make a point of this when I read about something so Enraging that it has taken me nearly a full day after the fact to put it in writing, I saw it HERE on Monday Afternoon, 10/04/10.



It also had a mention on Coast 2 Coast AM's Radio Show with George Norry as Host Monday night and Tuesday morning, 10/04-05/10, by Robert Zimmerman from BehindtheBlack.com, [The mini-film of the press release by a group called 10:10 which is stirring controversy all over the World, even by some Green Groups can be seen at the BehindtheBlack.com link.

The fact is that some of these Green and Earth First Groups Define the same language as those Corporate, Billionaire and World Leaders who openly seek and talk about a 'One World Government and the coming New World Order.

That is, (I am Paraphrasing), 'to seek world depopulation mainly by 'Soft-Kill' Means, to enslave anyone who is not a part of the Elite, (Autocrats, Aristocrats, Plutocrats), and create a two-class system [worker and ruler; Fuedal system]. To criminalize and or kill anyone who disagrees with their beliefs, actions and or methods'.

The problem with this Press release is en-capsulized in this small paragraph, They Portray a few different situations in School classrooms, Public Streets and so on where anyone who disagrees with their version of Environmentalism are killed.
The Kill Adults as well as Children and see nothing wrong with it as you can clearly see in their Mini-movie press release and their "Apology Letter", which the original can be seen on Behindtheblack.com or the 'modified' version at their website here and their apology to the 'Apology Letter' here.

Since the Release of this Mini-Movie Press Release called 'No Pressure'; Many of their Corporate Sponsors and affiliations have subsequently jumped ship in light of 'No Pressure', including Environmental giant 350.org, who had some choice words and reactions over the video and 10:10's use of such;

"Our big day of action on October 10th has been building to a crescendo... that good feeling turned to a kind of quiet nausea... "This" was a gross video making its way around Youtube, purporting to show people being blown up for not believing in climate change... But it's the kind of mistake that will haunt and hurt efforts. What makes it so depressing is that it's the precise opposite of what the people organizing around the world for October 10 are all about... Killing people is, literally, the last thing we want." -Bill McKibben 350.org

In any case everyone should know that their are people out there who believe sick and sociopathic methods are at the very least artistic and creative; albeit humorous, and they believe killing children and people is the answer to obtaining their goals.

I believe that they are very wrong in their approach and that this joke is no laughing matter, only those who do not believe in the equality of rights and freedom of thought would have the want and desire to express something so malign in nature.

And yes we actually were in a Cooling period between 1940 and 1979, and although we are warmer than we were then, we are yet still in the cool as it were.

I personally do not believe that the Earth is in dire danger due to warming, since science has shown recently and over recorded time that we are well below the warm period of Medieval times, and that our CO2 count is actually average as Ice Core samples and recorded data have shown. Even though we are warming, it isn't only the Earth; it is every planet in the Solar system currently and it has to do with the Suns Cycle and Sun-spot activity, Solar winds and various other condition related to space.

What the Greens don't tell you is that Warm Earth times produce better and larger crop yields, As what happened in Medieval Times and Roman Times. (Though it is true some plants do not seem to like added CO2, Food Crops have historically done well.), and extra CO2 is the RESULT of warming NOT the CAUSE.

When you really look to the root of the issue, you see that Billionaires and the very rich have been supporting and sponsoring this cause to create taxes to control our daily lives; the Carbon Tax, the Clean Air Tax and so on, (So in the U.S. the Carbon Tax was rewritten so it only includes those things that spew 25,000 p/b like Coal plants and the like, but very rarely do I ever hear or see anyone talk about the fact that like any tax on Big Corporate they always swim down stream to the tax payer; you really think the Corporations are going to foot the tax and keep the rates for tax payers as they are?). This is done so they can control what you consume, because they don't want you consuming their resources.

"Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of."
-Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg [Interview with the New York Times]

"Fortunately, at least one member of Congress took notice. Representative Joseph Pitts, a Republican from Pennsylvania, gave a stirring speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives denouncing Ginsburg’s comment. If you have not seen his one minute speech addressing this yet, then you definitely need to watch this video:"
-Above 2 paragraphs taken from: Signsofthelastdays.com

So not to say that Women shouldn't have a choice, (of which I am a supporter of a Women's Choice), but there does seem to be an agenda for Abortion, that is not kosher with Freedom to choose.

"John P. Holdren, Barack Obama's top science advisor co-authored a book in 1977 in which he advocated mass sterilization using the food and water supply, mandatory bodily implants that would prevent couples from having children, forced abortions for American couples trying to have too many children and a global police force to enforce population control.

Now keep in mind, this is Barack Obama's number one science advisor.

Holdren advocated these insane proposals in a 1977 textbook entitled "Ecoscience", which he co-authored with Paul Ehrlich (who worked in the Bush administration) and Anne Ehrlich."
-Above 2 paragraphs taken from: Signsofthelastdays.com

For more Eugenic quotes by our Leaders and Environmentalists see here & here:

Yet in the end I do believe that we should curb and eventually eliminate some destructive and unhealthy methods of approach like Oil based Combustion Engines, Natural Gas, and Coal Burning to name a few. But until we can find a reasonable, unlimited and cheap, (quite possible free), source to fuel and propel ourselves into the future, we will be stuck with what we have.

Though Conserving is still very important;
1. So turn off lights when you are not in the room.
2. Unplug appliances that can be left unplugged for indefinite amounts of time if you are not using them or are leaving for more than a day.
3. Don't leave televisions, computers or other devices on unnecessarily when you are not using them.
4. Don't waste;
A. If it can be recycled or reused for something else do so.
B. Don't eat more than your share.
C. Save and eat your left-overs or invite college and out-of -work friends over to do it for you.
D. Donate or sell unused clothing articles instead of throwing them out
E. Donate or Sell unused appliances, books, and other household or automotive items.
5. Dispose of chemicals and auto fluids in the appropriate manner.
And so many other ways to help keep our Earth nice, beautiful and in good shape.

For those of you who do read this and watch the video leave comments or email me your opinions on this.

Folly and Naïvety

Yes, yes I am angry; I am quite incensed about it all!

From my fellow Citizens, to my Leaders I have voted to represent me and my Government, to foreign entity’s and their Citizens, in fact every Human on this planet is at fault.

At fault for what?

At fault for letting things get out of hand, and I am at fault too, but at least I am working towards trying to fix those things that are wrong.

Not many are, in fact not many even realize there is a problem, let alone that the problem is very deep and how high up the ladder it really goes.

People only see what they want to see, that is the greatness and problem of individual perception.

Perception is though very easily swayed in Humans, especially now in an age when we at least in “1st World” nations have nearly everything at our finger tips. We are fed all sorts of garbage via our Television sets, our Radio waves, our Corporations, and our Leaders, all to keep us distracted from the true reality around us until at least we can't defend ourselves any more.

We are trained now from a very young age that we need things that are unnecessary, albeit fun. We are filled with dogma in our schools and in our advertisements and many other places; that sets in a belief that our Government is our Parent and will fix and do everything for us.

We are told who is wrong and what is right; our Celebrities and politicians do illegal and unconscionable things, some apologize but many never learn; and because they have power and money that somehow voids them from Justice and the laws of the land.

And then many go ahead and do it all over again.

Of the five Main Religions of the World three I am going to point out and give rant to; you first have the faith of the Judeans, then their offshoot the Christians, and later in History you have the Muslims. Their roots are very much the same, even having many of the same prophets and leaders. The reality of it all is that all three Religions have roots that go back to the 12 Tribes of Israel + Levi. The Jews, the many Arab nations and even many who encompass Christianity came from one of the 12 Tribes or Levi.

But each has their own version of GOD and each has it’s own sub-groups and each has it’s own path to enlightenment, and each teaches whether in their Holy books or outside of that they are the only true faith and destruction will befall all the others.

Many even push for and many times force others to follow their faith; Jews generally don’t want anyone but themselves in their Religion though you can with approval buy your way in: (This is against principles taught by their prophets and Jesus.)
Christians in General welcome people to accept their faith, but Catholic, Mormon, and some other groups have and still at times use force, coercion, and deception to convert, and in the past even death as a tool for such, (although this again is against the teachings of their prophets and Jesus.)

Muslims follow guidelines set down by the prophet Muhammad, similar to what Christians follow from Jesus and Jews follow from G-D. But many of the verses in the Quran seek vengeance similar to Jewish Old Testament, however the Christians are told to turn the other cheek.

Muslims though tend to be polar opposites of the rest of God’s “people” when it comes to compassion; they only see strength and power as goodness and compassion as weakness, so when you are taught to Love thy enemy, they are taught to respect thy enemy but only as far enough to get them before they get you. This is the problem America faces since we are a Nation still built mainly on compassion even in times of war; but specifically after the wars, where we rebuild and tend to shed pity on the conquered, (This isn't a bad thing, but when dealing with religions like Islam you are up a creek without a paddle unless you become aggressive, No matter what you will always be the infidel).

In any case, this fracturing of God’s word has been the bane of Humans on Earth for over 2000 years.

This and the hating and berating of any other religious form on this planet by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike; This is and has been a huge problem, it causes only strife and sadly no one seems to follow the simple principle Jesus Christ talked about; about being concerned for only your Soul and let others be that be, (Otherwise known as the ‘Dividing Christ Sermon’).
And even now it seems to be a crime to even try and understand your “enemy”, let alone sympathize, whether that sympathy is founded in right or wrong.

A crime in a society that was originally built and founded upon principles of free though and Free Faith, but it is because things have gotten away from us. Things are this way because there are those that deem it so and have been causing such things to occur over the past many years.

Sadly there are those Humans in this World who seek only power and riches, and they have been given power over us by wit and whim, deception and malaise.

And have done so for the whole written account of Human history, but most specifically for about 1100 years or so.

I call them only ‘Humans’, (even though they don’t seem to have that element to them either), because calling them People or Persons would give them Rights, it would allow me to acknowledge them as well.

I say this because even though I believe all Humans are born with a certain set of in-a-lienable rights, none of us has the Right to subjugate another, kill without defense, and or take from another that which is not ours.

And those that do, do not really even deserve the classification of Human Being; because even though they may Reason and be intelligent, (as the classification ‘Homo Sapiens Sapiens’ entails), they do things as such that cause the disparity and injury of others on a consistent and quite frankly very public manner and therefore find themselves in a league of their own, A league that is in-Humane in action and cause.

These ‘Humans’ many would want to destroy because of their behavior of which is destructive, and I almost would want to agree, because it is [Easy], it is the easy path to kill, to destroy, to erase from existence that which we do not accept, like or even understand.

I do not have the answers on how they might be dealt with, even though I agree something must and should be done with them.

And yes it does just sound like I am another Person rattling their saber but not willing to step on the field.

But how can one do to another what is morally wrong, what in many belief systems is supposed to be the sole decision of the Creator or like Deity.

Many cannot and that I gather is the problem which is presented to and by many of us who see only one real course of action, but are bound or grounded by our set ideals of Moral constitution.

It is because really the only ones willing to do that which is against the moral code are those who have no morals to begin with or are severely lacking of such.

It was stated by Burke and Einstein both in similar fashion that it is unconscionable to stand by and do nothing, yet Christ said to love thy enemy because love and kindness are more powerful than any bout of vileness and hatred.

But people do not seem to know how to love their enemies and protect themselves and their families at the same time.

Such is the dilemma of Mankind, or so I think.

What really is unconscionable is that we have been duped by our leaders, here at home and around the World.

They work day and night to take away Rights that they never had any rights to take away in the first place.

It is a very sick thing that wraps our World up in and it finds us in a bind.

Things have gotten out of hand and it is because We, and our ancestors turned a blind eye, it is because we were too happy to not see past our own noses and ignore the truths because of assumptions that things weren’t as bad as they were and that there is no evil conspiracy.

Americans specifically forgot that they themselves were given the task by their founding fathers to be the Guardians of Liberty, Freedom and Justice.

It was and is our duty! What happened? Where did it all go wrong?!

The blame game continues and nothing much seems to be done about the real issues, and I guess that is what the powers that be want.

Divide and conquer and in time all conflict, wars and struggles will be won.

It doesn’t take a genius to see how to control another Human being, how to steal, how to fight and or how to kill; but many, many intelligent people are yet still being led astray by some very dubious characters, with extremely ridiculous persona's; some of whom are quite lacking in intelligence.

This is very sad, since if everyone could just see those follies, then just maybe we would have a better chance at seeing the ones in the shadows leading the many leaders that so becomes our angst.

In the end I am still very angry, and I am still incensed by everything that is going on and the helplessness I feel at times.

I tell myself, I have to believe that the Pen is mightier than the sword, because if it isn’t than we Humans are really nothing more than just animals surviving on instinct and we are then no better than the beasts of the field.

I leave with Three quotes to mull over:

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
-Edmund Burke [Irish orator, philosopher, & politician (1729 - 1797)]

The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
-Albert Einstein [German-Jew Scientist, Physicist, Mathematician (1879- 1955)]

To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.
-Titus 1:15 NIV [Assumed to be written by the Apostle Paul to Titus (66-67)

September 11th, 2010

So today is the 9 year anniversary of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, as well as the plane hijackings; there are going to be a lot of events going on around the United States today for the remembrance of those that died.

It is officially a national holiday called 'Patriot Day'.

However, besides taking a moment of silence to remember all those who died on September 11th, 2001, if you are able in this rough economy see if you can give a little help to those organizations that help the victims families.

If I missed any it is not because they are less important, I just don't know of them.

So take the time and have a moment of silence today, and remember all those that died 9 years ago.

I know I will.

Through Glass and up to 3 Miles away!!!

Security is good to have if you are a business or a private home owner, it is also good to help catch criminal activity and if your in a clandestine service; Spying.

Here is something new on the market, (For those that can afford it), It is the Cam-LTZ-3000 and 4 other models, brought to us by 'Ryan Aventura', of Aventura, Inc.

The Cameras in the LTZ series use a long-range infra-red feature that can see through glass and for the Cam-LTZ-3000 model; see up to 3 miles away in Daylight and 2 Miles at night!

"The patent pending independent laser zooming technology allows the user to control the concentration and direction of the light array ("Searchlight Technology"). "-http://www.aventuracctv.com/36X-Laser-Infrared-PTZ-Camera-Extra-Long-Range/

You even have the ability to actually observe details that you cannot with Thermal imaging!

The video seen here: http://www.aventuracctv.com/products/demos.asp?clProdID=1125, shows the different ways you can concentrate the Infra-red laser feature, as well as viewing things close-up and at a distance and all at night!!!

Some of the features on these Bad Boys are:

-Automatic Window Defrost
-Weatherproof
-Works in up to 90% Humidity
-Wireless
-Auto Tracking
-Stealth Illumination
and even
-Solar

So if you're in the market for a new powerful Camera system, this probably takes the cake!
If your not, be careful were you pick your nose.

Arizona, States Rights, and Illegal Imigration...

Who am I? I am a United States of America Citizen.

Background? Natural Born Citizen of the U.S. of A.; however on both sides of my family 3, 4, and 5 Generations back are immigrants from foreign countries.

Do I have any issues with immigrants? No, none whatsoever! My family comes from Immigrants! Also some of my good friends are 1st and 2nd generation immigrants.

Do I have issues with Illegal Immigrants? Yes, they whomever they may be, not only dishonor those of the same race and or nationality who took the legal steps to become a Citizen, they also cause undue disruption to all levels of the whole country, causing a drain on the infrastructure and take precious commodities away from the Natural born and also the Foreign born Citizens.

Why is Arizona important? Despite some Draconian language in Arizona S.B. 1070; a States Right to defend its borders and citizenry is granted and the DOJ's lawsuit against Arizona seems a bit frivolous in light of the fact that ever since the NAFTA trade agreement between Mexico, USA, and Canada the influx of illegal immigrants has increased, bringing more crimes such as murder, rape, stealing, etc. to our citizenry as a whole, but specifically to border States such as California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas mostly; and the Federal Government, despite claims to the contrary have put little force behind current laws to defend State sovereignty against illegal immigrant traffic. Arizona is important because if they lose this legal battle with the Federal Government it also means the Citizens lose as well. {Our Rights are tied to the idea that each of us is an Individual are born free with inalienable rights, it is those Individuals that give our leaders power, which in turn give our States power to dictate laws and rule over the whole; The power of the state to rule is proportionate to its ability to rule and maintain order on the land it encompasses, but also by right of rule by the people; this is the sovereignty of the State.} You take that sovereignty away and it leaves way for taking rights away from the Individual. This is a complicated and some say dangerous web to be treading; but one must ask, 'For whom?' If Arizona loses that means their is a chance the Individual loses too, and it could mean less rights in the borders of our very own homes if the States lose the Right to security within their borders.

So is Arizona important? Yes, absolutely!

Is the Federal Government Bad? No, but it does need to be kept in check as our Constitution and Fore Founders designed, so let us all work at all levels of government to ensure the safety of all us citizenry against illegal immigration, crimes, and anything else that would disrupt this great Nation of ours!

But don't take my word for it, Do your own research on this issue and also take a read at AFP's article below.

Follow Arizona’s Lead; Protest Federal Usurpation

By Jim Traficant


Contrary to what you’ve seen on television, heard on the radio or read in the newspapers, America does not—let me repeat—America does not have an immigration problem.

America has an “illegal” immigration problem—a huge illegal immigration problem. Massive and volatile, this illegal immigration problem has divided America into opposing forces; and the agendas of some of the people involved are highly suspect, especially the agenda of the federal government.

Let’s examine this fiasco. Recently, two groups of illegal immigrants were apprehended coming ashore along the southern California coast. One group included 18 people who landed at the Marine Corps’s Camp Pendleton. Let me repeat that—at Camp Pendleton. I’m not kidding. The existence of these 18 illegals and their subsequent apprehension were reported by federal authorities. Think about it. It’s getting so bad that illegal aliens are landing at our Marine bases. Beam me up!

Another group of 16 illegal aliens was caught coming ashore near Leucadia. They were traveling in a skiff, according to the U.S. Border Patrol.

The Border Patrol confirmed that they detained 18 illegal aliens “walking across Camp Pendleton a few hours after they were dropped off by boat.”

By the way, the Border Patrol was informed by Marine officials at Pendleton that the illegals were literally “walking across Camp Pendleton.”
Illegal aliens entering America through a Marine base . . . if that’s not enough to roast your chestnuts, tell me what is. The Marines, no less, phoned the Border Patrol. Geez, that was very thoughtful.

Has our government lost all semblance of common sense? How stupid can we be?

Whatever their various reasons for entering the U.S., these illegal aliens are invaders of our sovereign borders. Am I missing something here? I think not.

As I’ve often said, this isn’t brain surgery or rocket science. It’s not nearly as complicated as many of today’s permissive “talking heads” want you to believe. It’s actually rather simple. Entering the U.S. in such a manner makes them criminals because they enter our country without permission or authority.

This may sound harsh, but they should be thrown out. In addition, anyone aiding and abetting this illegal activity should be fined at least, and even imprisoned for certain activities that may jeopardize American lives.

Having said that, recall that the federal government has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Phoenix, Ariz. to stop Arizona’s enforcement of its new anti-illegal immigration law, claiming that the state law (S.B. 1070) is an “unlawful interference with federal authority.”

Yes, you read that right—“an unlawful interference with federal authority.” The DOJ says that Arizona has “crossed the line,” when Arizona is just trying to stop illegal aliens from vandalizing, robbing and threatening the lives of the citizens of Arizona. But the DOJ says it’s “our responsibility, not Arizona’s.”

Really? Well, the DOJ should be deported to Mexico—a nation with strict laws against illegal entry, far stricter than those of the U.S. Now, to really soil your taco, listen to the words of the director of the National Immigration Law Center.

This pro-illegal immigration entity issued a statement through Executive Director Marielena Hincapee: “By the [DOJ] filing its lawsuit against Arizona, the federal government carried out its duty: it reminded Arizona, and anyone else who attempts to follow suit, that immigration is a federal issue and the states should stay out.” In other words, just leave the illegal aliens alone and brush aside the fact that the U.S. government spends billions to defend every country’s borders but its own.

So, we now have a Mexican front group telling America and our states what we can and cannot do. This Mexican diva forgot to mention the key element of this debacle: It’s still illegal immigration, and that’s a crime. States have rights; they’re called states’ rights. Nowhere in our Constitution does it allow for some foreign-sponsored organization to tell us, or our states, what to do.

Truth is, this is largely about politics—to get that growing Hispanic vote, even though there are many Hispanics who played by the rules to become U.S. citizens and resent the illegal aliens and their front groups.

Where will the politicos stop to gain the huge Hispanic vote? Just think of the millions of new voters the lucky candidate/political party will attract by allowing such criminal activity at our borders to continue.

Is this homeland security? If you believe that, you’re somewhere far out in left field. Please tell me, how can we have an Office of Homeland Security when criminals are allowed to sprint across our borders? Some could be murderers, rapists, pedophiles and, yes, even terrorists.

Some will remark that “Traficant has an axe to grind” and “Traficant’s a bigot, a racist,” on and on. Yeah, I guess those labels keep everybody quiet. No one wants to be labeled. But are we going to let America go to hell?

That’s the basic problem, folks. Everyone’s afraid to open their mouths, afraid to express their opinion, afraid to lose their social status.

The DOJ should be supporting the state of Arizona, not suing them. What a travesty. But we citizens collectively sit back with our mouths closed and allow a powerful central government to leave our borders unprotected, wide open, with imaginary neon signs flashing, coaxing those wishing to enter America to illegally jump the border.

Anyone wishing to enter America to become a citizen need only do it legally. Is it really too much to ask that we do this like our grandparents and great-grandparents did years ago? Ellis Island wasn’t a theme park. It was a place for immigrants to enter the U.S. in an orderly fashion with all the proper health and citizenship regulations in place.

One last thing: Do not be afraid to speak out on this issue. If you are afraid, get a dog. Get back at me!

Happy Birthday U.S. of A.

Happy Fourth of July America!

This is a Happy day for many U.S. Citizens, as it should be.

And since it is the 4th of July, remember it isn't just about spending time with Family and Loved ones, Friends and Countrymen/women, and or your fellow Soldiers as it may be.

It isn't just remembering that it is the good Ol' U.S. of A.'s Birthday;

This day Officially marks the Independence of the Original 13 Colonies from Monarchial Tyranny under King George III of Great Britain.

It is a reminder of the commitment and sacrifices of our forefathers and also all Citizens and Soldiers alike who have done what they can to make and keep this our country free from tyranny and to continue the Citizens duty of upholding our Constitution and it's Amendments.

This day is also the time to Officially reflect on our country's Great Experiment, this Democratic-Republic of ours, and what we can do to keep it functioning as such.

It is a reminder that when we see fireworks exploding and raining down upon us from up in the sky, that it is an allegory for the Bomb shells that rained down upon our Country while we fought valiantly to assert our Rights and Personal freedoms from tyrannical forces.

It is a time to remember that the first Ten Amendments of the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights. Weren't just put their as an afterthought, but as a reminder to Government and Citizen alike that these first 10 Amendments are a re-statement of our [In-a-lienable] Common Law Rights which predate Government and are their to protect every common person from tyranny, subjugation and any other form which serves to enslave or chain one from their personal actions, thoughts and or even body.

It reminds us that only 'We the People' have the right to enslave ourselves or continue fighting to make sure we remain free.

It reminds us that We the People also means We the Government, and if something isn't right We are the only ones that can fix it.

The Fourth of July reminds each and everyone of us, U.S. Citizens that we are each and Individual yet together a Country, and because of that distinction we are all Great.

And as we go out to watch parades, and we go out to watch the fireworks, enjoy every bit of it you can, because this birthday is Our Birthday!

But when it is over, it really is never over; because tomorrow will always bring more Tyranny, more Incredulous and Malicious behavior serving only to take what we rightfully earned.

"Freedom is never Free", what good words uttered by many a Good Patriot and even those who would take that freedom from us.

In either a case or a history, the words ring true and to you, each U.S. Citizen;

Happy Birthday!

Happy Fourth of July!!

And, may each and everyone one of us sleep well tonight knowing that we have Citizens and Soldiers who continue to fight the good fight to keep us free in the pursuit of Life, Liberty and Happiness.

Deep Thoughts

So every-time I have gotten on here in the past two weeks to write something, Maintenance was occurring and I had given up hope, considering myself one of the unlucky few who always happened to log-in during maintenance.

You'd think you'd receive an email about these things... Maybe I should check my spam folder...

So in light of my new found joy of being able to present this to the world, I will ironically keep this short and fairly neutral.

Some words of wisdom for those in the know.

"Tomorrow I found what I was looking for, Yesterday I couldn't see, but Today I found I had already lived!"

Japanese Items #1

So I was off exploring in Long Grove, IL and I happened upon some beautiful antique hand painted WWII or possibly pre-WWII Tea Cups and Saucer plates, that were made in Japan.

The peach Stamp on the bottom shows a crown within a wisteria wreath and the words CHIKARAMACHI in a semi-circle above and MADE IN JAPAN in a straight line below.

'Why Not Antiques', has a little history on the pieces and apparently starting in 1928, 3 stamp versions where made in varying colors; the second stamp set was apparently in the colors of Red & Peach. This seems to have been a test line of Porcelain by the Noritake Company, as I read since it was of cruder make and hand painted design; possibly to test if it would go into a main parent line for sale.

I cannot and probably will never be able to correctly date the 3 Tea Cups with Saucers that I acquired, since all production for the Noritake Company ceased in 1942 most likely due to the U.S.'s incendiary bombing of Noritake's main offices.

Which in light of that is a very sad thing for those of us interested in preserving history.

Either way, I now own a wonderful piece of Japanese history and I hope that I can preserve much more in the coming future.

Here are photos of the items:
