Lifting the Veil

This documentary is very relevant this year in the coming election in the United states..
How many remember Obama's campaign promises when he ran his advertising campaign for his first term?
(See: for info about his "brand" advertising)

How about:
"..close down Guantanamo"
"i intend to close Guantanamo, and i will follow through on that"
"No wireless wiretaps"
"America doesn't torture"
"You can have confidence, I will be serious about ending this war (in 2009).. you can take that to the bank"
"Iran may spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military.. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny, compared to the Soviet Union, they don't pose a serious threat to us"
"Wall street will never create a crisis like this again"

The following documentary goes into detail how it does not matter between democrat and republican parties, they are both owned by the same corporations.. "What better way to enslave a man than to give him a vote and tell him he's free"

Are you afraid yet?

Maybe fear is the wrong reaction.. but it's the default one.. either that or anger..
I've never met anyone that examined the evidence and still belived that official story of the destruction of the World trade Center towers on September 11th 2001..
If you can watch these two videos, and still do not think it was an "inside job" I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts as to why you feel this way.
And if you think it doesn't matter either way.. then I submit you have not thought it through clearly enough and need to re-examine your beliefs as to what matters.. before it's too late
If.. it is not already..

Storm 2012 07 23 Cornwall ontario

Well we got 17 milimeters of rain yesterday, still about half the average rainfall for july for Cornwall, but it was nice to finally get some, and the storm, while it dropped a lot of hail on Ottawa, did not seem to give us too much violence...

I went to the local mall and walked up to the top of the parking garage to take photos of the approaching clouds, was nice to watch the storm.. I also took about 500 pictures trying to get the lightning, but my camera lens lets in far too much light to be able to do more than a half second to one second exposures, so none of them seemed to turn out.. oh well, I really like these two though :)

I could not remember the name of this, took a while to figure out what google keywords to use to find it again.
