If life wasn't hard enough these days, beware the scam artist. Have you had the call yet?  The one where Microsoft is calling you, telling YOU that...

But really? Does PG&E call you at home, not unless they have scheduled and outage and even then, it's an automated recording, not a real person. They just don't call and ask for money. Period. We've had several clients and friends who have endured the humiliation, the financial lost and the frustration of being ripped of for hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Of all the sinister things that Internet viruses do, this might be the worst: They can make you an unsuspecting collector of child pornography.

Heinous pictures and videos can be deposited on computers by viruses - the malicious programs better known for swiping your credit card numbers. In this twist, it's your reputation that's stolen. Pedophiles can exploit virus-infected PCs to remotely store and view their stash without fear they'll get caught. Pranksters or someone trying to frame you can tap viruses to make it appear that you surf illegal Web sites.

Though there are certainly many parts to this unfolding story, the largest piece of the puzzle by far still goes completely unacknowledged by most of the scientific community and all of the main stream media/corporate/military/industrial complex.

The massive elephant in the room has been, and still is, "stratospheric aerosol geoengineering" (SAG), AKA "solar radiation management" (SRM). A primary stated goal of the geoengineering programs is to provide a "solar shield" to slow "runaway climate change" by spraying tens of millions of tons of highly toxic metal nano particulates (a nanometer is 1/1,000,000,000 of a meter) into the atmosphere from jet aircraft. Is the spraying only for solar radiation management? Based on available data, there are a number of known objectives including but not limited to SRM, weather warfare, over the horizon radar enhancement, controlling food production, and probable biological testing. There are likely many more aspects and agendas related to the atmospheric spraying which we can not yet know.

In a stunning move, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton bucked the Supreme Court and declared that county clerks have the right to refuse to perform a same-sex marriage if they have a religious objection to doing so.

This legal opinion comes after the Supreme Court controverted the decisions of a majority of state governments and their citizens and imposed gay marriage on the entire country, offering little to no protection to Christians and others who may have sincere, faith-based objections to the practice.

While the signs are all around us and as clear as day to those paying attention, a large portion of our population, like that of Germany in the 1930's.

Any sensible person who takes the time to review the evidence must conclude that we are no longer living in a Constitutional Republic. We are, by all accounts, living in a modern day Police State influenced by corporate agendas, the almighty dollar, and the desire for power and control. It's happening right before our eyes - just as it has happened so many times throughout history.

The NPR claims the most common job in 29 of 50 US states is truck driving. This seems a bit overboard, and depends on how jobs are categorized, but here is the chart.

It should be clear at a glance just how dependent the American economy is on truck drivers. According to the American Trucker Association, there are 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the US, and an additional 5.2 million people employed within the truck-driving industry who don't drive the trucks. That's 8.7 million trucking-related jobs.

The Senate struggled to prevent an interruption in critical government surveillance programs early Saturday, rejecting both a House-passed bill and a short-term extension of the USA Patriot Act.

The White House has pressured the Senate to back the House bill, which would end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of domestic phone records. Instead, the records would remain with telephone companies subject to a case-by-case review. The vote was 57-42, short of the 60-vote threshold to move ahead.
