Just a few hours ago, the FBI released footage from a surveillance camera, and thusly some screenshots from said video, of two men walking along at the Boston Marathon. According to Special Agent Greg Comcowich: More…
I became so completely engrossed in this article that I have read it thoroughly at least five times now. I wanted to make sure that I completely understood the implications of what is actually occurring here within our own country to our own citizens.
Briefly, with a few excerpts from the story, two FBI agents entered into the Library Connection in Windsor, Connecticut, flashed their badges and demanded to speak to the person in charge. George Christian, who was the Director, appeared as per the agent’s request and the agents demanded “‘any and all subscriber information, billing information and access logs of any person or entity’ that had used computers between 4 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. on February 15, 2005, in any of the 27 libraries whose computer systems were managed by the Library Connection…. He handed Christian a document called a National Security Letter (NSL); it said the information was being sought ‘to protect against international terrorism.’”
SAN DIEGO, May 26 (UPI) — A 91-year-old Southern California woman said Thursday FBI agents seized the suicide kits she makes at home and sells by mail.
The story from Huffington Post on May 1st, 2011
A La Mesa, California grandmother has recently been making headlines for her unconventional and deadly business.
Sharlotte Hydorn, a 91-year-old grandmother, has apparently been selling $60 suicide kits online, stirring much debate about the legality of the practice. Just four months ago a 29-year-old man was found dead by his brother after using one of the do-it-yourself kits, according to the Daily Beast.
How the grandmother-turned-suicide-facilitator began selling the kits, which are available for purchase under the name of the The Gladd company, is a story of personal anguish. According to the Daily Beast, Hydorn’s own husband died a painful death from colon cancer almost 30 years ago.
Many have spoken out against Hydorn’s business, including the family of Nick Klonoski, who took his life using the kit. “In a society where so many people suffer from depression and other mental-health disorders,” Zach Klonoski, Nick’s brother, said at a hearing, “this company has found their niche in the market by peddling death. This is analogous to putting a gun-vending machine next to a depression clinic. The Gladd company, so named as to avoid suspicion in case family members happen to sign for or come across the package, made $60 off my brother’s death.”
The grandmother defends her business regardless. “I’m doing what I can to improve the world,” she told 10News. “There’s a lot of heartache and difficulty here.”
The kits create a simple suffocation device that uses helium to take away life.
About 1,600 are sold every year. To this point, California does not have laws enacted that make this type of business illegal, despite many recent calls to enact laws that will limit the availability of such devices.
Charlotte makes the kits — which cost buyers $60 — by taking large plastic bags and sewing soft elastic bands around the opening. There is a slot in the bag for a plastic tube carrying helium gas to be inserted. Helium — when inhaled in its pure form — is deadly. Kit users are responsible for securing their own helium gas.

Now, for the flip side of my previous post asking FOX to put a lid on it out of respect to the families of the 911 victims….
I most certainly believe in free-thinking… to explore, gather data, and come to my own conclusions. However, when the facts and truths are limited or skewed, I often find myself not being able to being able to reasonably come to a decision. Therefore, I remain agnostic on the matter… neither believing nor disbelieving what has been laid before me.
I have now come to realize I am in a quandry with 911…. First of all, I most certainly believe without a doubt that the general public, such as myself, will never know the true facts behind the collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7. Was it Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda fronting an act of terrorism against the “infedel” know as the US? Was it perhaps Bush and part of the US government (or US-International combination) seeking to obtain world-wide power and financial gain? Or another inexplicable reason altogether? The truths behind this day will never be known beyond a doubt. The families of the innocent will forever suffer. Since the day I watched the towers collapse, it has never set right with me that they went down in a manner much like implosion. And then there’s Building 7….
When I was prepping my previous posting which is asking FOX to shut the #*@! up and stop whining on how Obama sent the Seals in to capture/kill Bin Laden (out of respect for the 911 families), I wanted to include an image of the “FBI Most Wanted” poster of Osama Bin Laden. So I googled away… but what I found surprised me.
No where on this wanted poster does it mention 911…. no where.
It states, “Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world.”
Nothing… nada… zero… zilch.
For nearly ten years, we have been led to believe that Bin Laden was behind this horrific event. Have we been lied to this whole time? Placing blame on OBL for ulterior motives?
I’m tired of excuses and lies. What is the truth?
I am neither affirming nor denying this viewpoint of what occurred on 9/11/2001. Just passing on information for you to decide….
