  • The poetic manifesto "We are the New Civilization" has now been translated into Finnish, thanks to Liisa Jääskeläinen in Helsinki. Thank you Liisa! That brings it to 12 different languages: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, Danish, German, Russian, Croatian, Slovenian, Esperanto, Interlingua and now Finnish. Anybody else who speaks a different language?

  • The U.S. Department of Defense could not account for how they spent 1.1 trillion dollars in 2000. That is 1,100,000,000,000 dollars. That they "lost". In 1999 the amount was apparently 2.3 trillion. That could easily feed every last person on the planet. Of course they didn't lose it. The question is what it paid for that we're not supposed to know about. See stories: Kelly O'Meara:Wasted Riches, Catherine Austin Fitts:Pockets Picked. But how can they lose more than their yearly budget? I don't entirely get it.

  • Bertelsman is one of the biggest media companies on the planet: BMG Music, Random House, etc. They bought up and closed down Napster. They were also one of the biggest producers of Nazi literature, pumping out 20 million volumes. They were a big supporter of the Nazi party, and they used Jewish slave labor in the Baltic states. And so far they've denied it. See article. Oh, they're not alone. Deutche Bank financed the construction of Auschwitz. Siemens and Daimler were also using slave labor. Those companies have at least acknowledged it and apologized, for whatever that's worth.

  • One of the most underrated household products I own is a flashlight that uses LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) instead of bulbs. It uses 3 ordinary "C" batteries. Mine came with a set of batteries when I bought it about two years ago, and there has never been any need for changing them. It runs hundreds of hours on a set of batteries. Much, much longer than if one was using a lightbulb. And there is no bulb that can burn out. I don't know why it is such a well-kept secret, other than that it is rather expensive for a flashlight. But I hate throwing away batteries. I bought mine at C.Crane company here.

    12 Oct 2002 @ 15:40 by sharie : Trillions missing from Pentagon
    I've known about the missing money for almost a year, but it never occurred to me that the Defense Department spent it on some new weapon. I don't think so Ming, I think somebody's been siphoning money off the Defense Budget, the IRS, and who knows how many other U.S. Departments for their personal use.

    I have no doubt that Bush, Cheney, and who knows how many others have their fingers in the tills.

    These trillions and trillions of dollars are enough to leverage out all the major players in the global war of financial conquest.

    I think the 911 attacks were a retaliation on what's going on internationally.

    I don't believe a word the *Administration* tells us about the 911 attacks, Al Queda, Iraq or anything else.

    I didn't know about this last trillion, so thanks for reporting it.
