Many ways.....

Cop or Soldier?

RIOT police officers tear-gassing protesters at the Occupy movement in Oakland, Calif. The surprising nighttime invasion of Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, carried out with D-Day-like secrecy by officers deploying klieg lights and a military-style sound machine. And campus police officers in helmets and face shields dousing demonstrators at the University of California, Davis with pepper spray.
Is this the militarization of the American police?


Today civilian law enforcement agencies have access to military-grade equipment designed for heavy combat, essentially blurring the line between soldier and police officer.
Take the quiz and see if you can recognize the difference between a "Peace Officer" or a "Skilled Warrior."

Something to think about.....

The day the world ends, no one will be there, just as no one was there when it began. This is a scandal. Such a scandal for the human race that it is indeed capable collectively, out of spite, of hastening the end of the world by all means just so it can enjoy the show.

Jean Baudrillard

A thousand innocent people get killed every day! But a millionaire's pet gets detonated, and you're marked for life.

Reading Kills......

Can you imagine a world in which no one can read because if they do their death will be imminent? This is something the denizens of this particular world discover - and you can imagine the effects it has on their society...

Fenn Cache Analysis

The Fenn Cache is one of the most compelling Clovis features ever to surface— a collection of 56 Clovis artifacts reportedly discovered in a field Photo of a Clovis point from the Fenn Cache somewhere near the juncture of the Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho borders. In 2007 we began a multi-faceted analysis of the Fenn Cache artifacts. The artifacts are made on two kinds of chert, "Pigeon Blood" chert presumably from southeast Utah and "oil" chert from southwest Wyoming. Following leads from Bruce Bradley, we have visited potential sources of both cherts, collecting samples for geochemical analyses (INAA, XRF), to see if we can discern the two sources and match them with the Clovis artifacts. We are also using replicas of Clovis points and bifaces made on both materials in a series of experiments, so that we can conduct high-power microscopic use-wear analysis of the points and bifaces, and interpret possible traces of edge, hafting, and bag wear. We are also measuring each artifact, conducting technological as well as morphometric analyses of them, for comparisons with other Clovis artifacts from interior western North America.

Something to think about.....

“In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians Americans finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens America ceased to be free and was never free again.”

― Edward Gibbon

The inevitable question that arises whenever anyone views petroglyphs or other rock art is: What do these symbols mean?

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

Hopi Clan Symbols

Tutuveni, a sacred site of unparalleled cultural importance to the Hopi people and A vital resource for archaeologists, has suffered much damage by vandals and souvenir hunters. Spray-painted graffiti has destroyed approximately 10% of the symbols that are carved into the stones at Tutuveni, which record more than 1,000 years of Hopi history and culture.
