A growing number of people believe in the existence of chemtrails, toxic chemicals or biological agents that are supposedly being deliberately sprayed at high altitude by the US government (and/or other entities) for a purpose undisclosed to the general public, resulting in respiratory illnesses and other health problems. A couple of days ago a film touching on that very topic, Toxic Skies, aired on Australian TV, but it's nearly impossible to find any information on it. Not even on the… Continue

Seeking to move beyond what he calls a "a dark and painful chapter in our history," President Barack Obama said Thursday that CIA officials who used harsh interrogation tactics during the Bush administration will not be prosecuted. The government also released four memos long held secret by the Bush administration in which its lawyers approved in extensive and often graphic detail the tough interrogation… Continue

Many have called Sacha Baron Cohen brave for some of the stunts he pulled in his upcoming gaystravaganza Bruno (including a same-sex kiss at a cage match that riled the audience of rednecks into a state of Coors-throwing fury), but to us, the gutsiest set piece Cohen engineered was roping failed presidential candidate Ron Paul into a bedroom for an uncomfortable, aborted seduction. Now, Paul is revealing all about the brief encounter that will have Cohen dogged by red-faced… Continue

When I told my family about Paganism,
They didn’t believe me.
I told them that this was my new life,
And they didn’t believe me.
I tried to explain how magick was real,
And I told them of another goddess and god.
They still didn’t believe me.
My family and friends said,
Magick isn’t real!
You can’t believe what you see on TV!
But I ignored them and pushed on.
My fathers parents called it devil… Continue
There was once a race of humans who all lived together in a big cave. We'll call them the Humbugs. The Humbugs spent their entire lives staring at the shadows cast on the cave wall. They believed the shadows were who they were and the cave wall was the whole world. Now don't get me wrong, it was a big wall as far as cave walls go, but it didn't take them very long to explore the whole thing. It was then that the Humbugs concluded they had explored their whole world, which was true. They now… Continue

By DAVE GRAM Vermont on Tuesday became the fourth state to legalize gay marriage -- and the first to do so with a legislature's vote.
The House recorded a dramatic 100-49 vote -- the minimum needed -- to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto. Its vote followed a much easier override vote in the Senate, which rebuffed the Republican governor with a vote of 23-5.
Vermont was the first state to legalize civil unions for same-sex couples and… Continue

It’s no secret that the lives of battery hens are nothing short of miserable. Multiple hens are forced to live in cramped wire cages together, like the one in the photo, with no room to move or stretch for a year or two, or until their egg laying productivity declines, at which point they’re discarded as “spent” hens.
Now, so called “Cage-Free” labels for eggs are fairly common in most grocery stores, but what does that really even mean?
Iowa's Supreme Court unanimously struck down the state's gay marriage ban on Friday, making Iowa the third state where same-sex couples can tie the knot.
In its decision, the court upheld a 2007 district court judge's ruling that the law violates the state constitution. It strikes the language from Iowa code limiting marriage to only between a man a woman.
"The court reaffirmed that a statute inconsistent with… Continue
