JFK AND 9/11

Doodle: a mindless sketch, an aimless drawing, while a person's attention is otherwise occupied.
We have all been sitting somewhere and found ourselves just doodling on a piece of paper. If that paper was found years later, would it tell us something about ourselves? Would it reveal what may have been hidden in our subconscious mind? Why am I asking these questions?
A recent news article suggests that maybe the doodlng of a former president may reveal that he knew the future, at least some are claiming that.

Here is the headline:
JFK Doodle Predicted "9-11 Conspiracy"Weird Associated Press report suggests unimaginable spooky coincidence





















The Article is claiming:
A John F. Kennedy doodles eemingly predicted a "9-11 conspiracy" 40 years before it happened.

Tuskegee Syphilis Study

Here is an event that many may not be aware of:

This is from the following link: Tuskegee Syphilis Study - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Tuskegee Syphilis Study (19321972), also known as the Public Health Service Syphilis Study was a clinical study, conducted around Tuskegee, Alabama, where 399 (plus 200 control group without syphilis) poor -- and mostly illiterate -- African American sharecroppers became part of a study on the treatment and natural history of syphilis. This study became notorious because it was conducted without due care to its subjects, and led to major changes in how patients are protected in clinical studies. Individuals enrolled in the Tuskegee Syphilis Study did not give informed consent and were not informed of their diagnosis; instead they were told they had "bad blood" and could receive free treatment, a free ride to clinic, one hot meal per day and in case of dying: $50 for the funeral.

WICCAN SIGN ALLOWED





















RENO, Nev. - The widow of a soldier killed in Afghanistan won state approval Wednesday to place a Wiccan religious symbol on his memorial plaque, something the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs' name had refused.

"I'm honored and ecstatic. I've been waiting a year for this," Roberta Stewart said from her home in Fernley, about 30 miles east of Reno.
Sgt. Patrick Stewart, 34, was killed in Afghanistan last September when a rocket-propelled grenade struck his helicopter. Four others also died. Stewart was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart.
He was a follower of the Wiccan religion, which the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs does not recognize and therefore prohibits on veterans' headstones in national cemeteries.
But state officials said they had received a legal opinion from the Nevada attorney general's office that concluded federal officials have no authority over state veterans' cemeteries. They now plan to have a contractor construct a plaque with the Wiccan pentacle — a circle around a five-pointed star — to be added to the Veterans' Memorial Wall in Fernley.

"The VA still has not determined yet if a Wiccan symbol can go on the headstone," said Tim Tetz, executive director of the Nevada Office of Veterans Services. "But we have determined we control the state cemetery and that we therefore have the ability to recognize him for his service to his country."
Wiccans worship the earth and believe they must give to the community. Some consider themselves good witches, pagans or neo-pagans.

The Veterans Affairs' National Cemetery Administration allows only approved emblems of religious beliefs on government headstones. Over the years, it has approved more than 30, including symbols for the Tenrikyo Church, United Moravian Church and Sikhs. There is also an emblem for atheists.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A challenge to my readers. Find and send me a picture of the symbols for the Tenrikyo Church, United Moravian Church and Sikhs. Also see if you can find a picture of the Atheist Symbol.

SHADOW PEOPLE



















Shadow People – Ghosts, Demons, or Inter-Dimensional Beings?

Show his eyes, and grieve his heart;Come like shadows, so depart!”
(Macbeth, Act IV, Scene 1)


Look on any ghost hunting or paranormal site, or ask any investigator, and alongside ‘traditional’ ghosts and dust-orbs, there is another, far more unusual and much creepier facet of paranormal research – Shadow Figures.


According to Ghost Study dot com (http://www.ghoststudy.com/) , there are three types of Shadow entity:


Type A - Appear as a small dark misty cloud and are almost always under two feet in length, but can hover or float up to 8 feet high.


Type B - Appear as a huge glob of thick cloudy mass. They typically range from 2 to 8 feet in height.


Type C - Appear in human form and some may be seen wearing a hat. They typically appear up to 8 feet in height.

COOL PICTURE










This picture was found at the Cost to Coast Am website.

The following was written about the picture:
CKK-walks-on-water! Having recently discovered this burden of mythical if not biblical proportions, I have decided to use this super-power sparingly, with humility and circumspection, just as I conduct the rest of my life! I'm a fan of C2C, a writer and illustrator who lives in New York. I am a marathon swimmer (I've swum around Manhattan on 4 separate occasions and hope to swim the English Channel one day). I march in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as a 'balloon handler'. My first book will be published soon (finally!). I've befriended kayakers (who act as safety shepherds for long distance swimmers) and recently participated in a night time circumnavigation of Manhattan, during a meteor shower! Subsequently, I joined a 'paddle' from Long Island City to Staten Island and back. 1 mile south of the Statue of LIberty I noticed a ripple in the water, a touch of white water on an otherwise smooth bay. Instead of being 'good kayak citizens' our intrepid group sought adventure and investigated. There seemed to be, not a sand bar but a rock bar in what should have been -- 75 feet of water! It may have been a sunken gravel barge that had not yet been removed and at - 1 hour before dead low tide, one could stand on the gravel. One of our trio had a disposable water resistant camera and after testing the rocks for sturdiness, we removed our life vests, pulled the kayaks out of the picture and took 'hero shots' or 'you're not going to believe this' type of shots. The next time I get abducted, I should bring my camera! It looks as though we're walking on water! The photo is not photoshopped! Keep up the great work at C2C!

THE NUMBER ONE ALBUM IN THE COUNTRY















If I was to ask you what the number one album in the country was? You would proably not guess an Album by Bob Dylan!

NEW YORK, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Dylan's new album, Modern Times, has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, making this the artist's first album to hit the top of that chart in 30 years. This 30-year span between #1 albums - Desire hit the top spot in 1976 -- is the longest of any living recording artist. Modern Times has sold more than 192,000 copies in the United States since its release, marking the biggest such sales period for a Bob Dylan album in the 15 year history of SoundScan.
Source: Columbia Records

Modern Times is already one of the most critically lauded albums of Bob Dylan's career. Rolling Stone awarded the album 5 stars (out of 5) and proclaimed it, "His third straight masterwork." Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times wrote that Dylan is, "our living Rosetta Stone, his songs carrying forth the essence of a thousand blues and folk classics, connecting the canonical and the folkloric to the present day." In the UK, Mojo magazine exclaimed, Epic...Heartbreaking...Dynamic ... Apocalyptic!" while Uncut gave Modern Times its highest ranking of 5 stars.

A HUMAN BEING AS A ZOO EXHIBIT!















I do not have the words to describe the following story. It describe not only a sad event in the history of our country but a horrible time in which people could not see pass the skin color of other human beings!

The following story was found at npr.com

On Sept. 8, a hundred years ago, the Bronx Zoo in New York unveiled a new exhibit that would attract legions of visitors -- and spark a furor.
Inside a cage, in the zoo's Monkey House, was a man named Ota Benga. He was 22 years old, a member of the Batwa people, pygmies who lived in what was then the Belgian Congo.
Ota Benga first came to the United States in 1904. The St. Louis World's Fair had hired Samuel Phillips Verner, an American explorer and missionary, to bring African pygmies to the exposition.
After the World's Fair, Verner, as promised, took the Africans back to their country. But Ota Benga found that he didn't fit in at "home" anymore -- all the members of his particular tribe had been annihilated during his time away -- and he asked Verner to take him back to the United States.
That's when Ota Benga ended up at the Bronx Zoo. It's estimated that 40,000 visitors a day came to see him.
At the same time, a group of African-American ministers mounted a vigorous protest.
From an article in The New York Times on Sept. 10, 1906:
"The person responsible for this exhibition degrades himself as much as he does the African," said Rev. Dr. R. MacArthur of Calvary Baptist Church. "Instead of making a beast of this little fellow, he should be put in school for the development of such powers as God gave to him. It is too bad that there is not some society like the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. We send our missionaries to Africa to Christianize the people, and then we bring one here to brutalize him."
The Bronx Zoo soon ended the exhibit, and the ministers' group moved Ota Benga to the Howard Colored Orphan Asylum in Brooklyn. He stayed there for a short time before being relocated to Lynchburg, Va., where various families housed him and tried to help him live a normal life.
Ota Benga lived in Lynchburg until March 1916, when he borrowed a gun from one of his host families, went to the woods on the edge of the town, and shot himself.
Carrie Allen McCray, now 92, knew Ota Benga when she was a little girl in Lynchburg; for a time, he lived with her family. Phillips Verner Bradford is the grandson of the explorer who brought Ota Benga to America. They recount the story of the African pygmy's life -- and death -- in America.
