Enslavement of the World

I've seen a lot of heart-throbbing documentaries, but this one is by far one of the greatest threats to humanity's survival from a despotic totalitarian dystopian nightmare. It's a well done investigative documentary that you wont find on U.S. TV


What do we do? For one, become informed. Tell EVERYONE you know. Get them to share as well. Secondly... pray? Become involved in the spread of awareness. Public awareness is the biggest pressure to involve international government intervention.

Genetically Modified Movie

Elizabeth Hart

Biotech activist Dr.
Vandana Shiva is a featured voice in Marie-Monique Robin’s new documentary, The World According to Monsanto.
"'If they control seed, they control food,' says Shiva. 'They know it. That's more powerful than bombs. It's more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world.' And indeed the Monsanto Corporation controls the world’s seed. In the past ten years, they have bought over 50 of the world’s seed companies, they provide seeds for 90 percent of the world’s genetically modified crops, and their relentless Round-Up campaign has convinced farmers around the globe that their destructive method of GMO farming is safe for humans and the environment.

Robin, a farmer’s daughter who has spent twenty-five years as an investigative journalist, uses the film to channel her outrage, resulting in the most comprehensive film about Monsanto’s crimes to date. She takes us from Anniston, Alabama, where Monsanto dumped one million pounds of PCBs into local waterways, to rural Paraguay, where Round-Up herbicide has caused illness and physical deformation in the children, and to India, where suicide is seen as a farmer’s only retreat from Monsanto.

The World According to Monsanto explores Monsanto’s hundred-year history as a chemical company (the same guys that brought you Agent Orange), it’s aggressive formation and implementation of patent laws to create Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and the heartbreaking impact its policies have on human health. All of which, says Robin, adds up to the greatest threat to human rights of our time."


Discovered this cause when looking up a local file-sharing community online, their incentive for giving users download points was to have them donate bags (8 canned goods) of food to their local food bank. Their reward was not only moral conscience, but also a sense of global community.

SA Light Rail- Yes Or No?


I'm not sure what generations you naysayers are from, but all of us in college would love a light rail mass transit system down the line. We understand that it's going to take decades to build and that it has to be implemented right away. Raising taxes for the greater good, and only at a cent or two a person? The Bexar county region has one of the largest population gains in the country, at our growth rate and with new developing job opportunities {thanks to affordable living in the region}, an efficient mass transit system isn't just a nice idea, it's crucial for positive infrastructure. DART, in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area, is one of the best transit models in the region and if we achieved just a fraction of their accomplishments it would be deemed proactive. These Light Rails are enjoyable to ride, they have logical routes, reduce expenses, and give people more time to think or read while they're on route to their destination. Totally eliminating the stress and headaches of waking up every morning to dive into a wall of congestion and the insecurity from reckless driving. VIA is a joke of an inefficient bus system, these buses need to be rerouted effectively, it's almost as if they're illogical on purpose so that we're forced to drive. When you actually use an efficient transit system in another city, you wonder why San Antonio is so backwards? We have a larger population than Dallas, Boston, Seattle, Denver, and so forth- but all of these cities have Light Rail systems! Sprawl is damaging our ecosystem, threatening our aquifer, and putting strains on transportation costs. These just aren't privileges, these are rights we should demand.

"The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the 5th Amendment." - Kent v Dulles, 357 U.S. 116, 125.

"Undoubtedly the right of locomotion, the right to remove from one place to another according to inclination, is an attribute of personal Liberty, and the right, ordinarily, of free transit from or through the
territory of any State is a right secured by the l4th Amendment and by other provisions of the Constitution." - Schactman v Dulles, 96 App D.C. 287, 293.



A message I wrote on Jan 20th, 2009 [2:18PM]

I'm really grateful for the friends I've made and decided to keep. You all have really great ideas and beautiful ambitions, I'm talking about those of us who've been hanging out recently [namely everyone I can think of], it's refreshing to see the creativity alive and thriving within us, because the more that potential builds, the more it's reserved, the greater the expression.


Rough Road for Texas Lawmakers

MySA Article Link

Speaking with many community leaders here in San Antonio, it's very apparent and obvious that the majority of citizens want better public transportation. Austin and San Antonio are some of the largest cities in the U.S. without a light rail system. When Dallas/Ft. Worth had trouble getting approval for theirs, people were skeptical they wouldn't meet a return until many years later. In fact they had a return and started making a profit within the first week that the Rail system opened. A light rail system will generate a tremendous amount of revenue compared to "Troll" Roads. Rails are more convenient and they're more enjoyable to ride. It opens up a slew of possibilities to business by bringing citizens into sight of markets and useful adverts. The local VIA Bus system is not attractive whatsoever, I only rode it once in my life and that was just for fun. We don't need more roads, we need improved infrastructure. {Sensored stop lights, electronic buses, bike friendly roads, easier walking maneuverability in the city, logical bus routes, and most importantly a Light Rail system}

Congress Spending $20 Billion on Health Records

MySA Original Article

Isn't privacy still protected under HIPPA laws? My question is why is it going to take 20 Billion dollars to digitize this information. I used to work in Medical Records for a local hospital, but to say it's going to take billions of dollars to type data is daunting. Also being a multimedia specialist, it's pretty ridiculous and questions how this money's going to be spent, or just pocketed into big-pharma. It would make matters extremely easier if Physicians and Hospitals required users to fill out their data online, user-generated data on a secure site similar to the discrepancy you would trust from an online bank portal. For some patients, particularly the older generation, this is difficult so they could do things at the clinic. A lack of funding requires an increase in problem-solving and innovation. Money can't just be thrown around in the private interest because too much in the public sector is at stake and without funding for rightful services such as Emergency and Assistance agencies.

Gaza Crisis Rant


Gaza- 1,284 Gazans were killed
  4,336 wounded 
(894 dead civilians)

Israel- 13 Israelis dead 
(10 dead soldiers)

Now take a look at the situation, you have 1.5 million impoverished refugees (that's more than the latest Bexar County population of 1.3mil) huddled into a 224 sq mi area, (compared with Bexar County's 1,257 sq mi). With Israel putting constant pressure, destroying homes with bulldozers, cutting off humanitarian aid, food, and water. How would you not defend your home? Hamas is in a state of power because they promise to protect the Palestinian people, they're a sense of justice to the acts of indignity. This is one of the last lands of refuge they have, and big bad Israel is suffocating their domain.  

Whether you're Jewish, Christian, or Muslim. Nowhere in anyone's scripture does it justify killing of the innocent and indifference to suffering. Judaism has a lot of commandments in the Mitzvot, but there are ones about "Love and Brotherhood" / "Poor and Unfortunate" that should be followed even in times of conflict. 

"Not to stand by idly when a human life is in danger (Lev. 19:16)  
Not to cherish hatred in one's heart (Lev. 19:17)
Not to take revenge (Lev. 19:18)
Not to bear a grudge (Lev. 19:18)
Not to afflict an orphan or a widow (Ex. 22:21)"* etc. 

It violates human rights, International Law, and even ancient scripture. It's an insult to modern civilization and a disrespect to our forefathers for letting such atrocities continue unabridged. 

If you look up the definition of a terrorist organization, by rights the CIA should be number one. (Look up: "CIA secret prisons") There are many political organizations, listed as terrorist organizations since they are threats to U.S. interests. The interest in this case would be Israel and its industrial and commercial trade. But there's no reason for bad business.

It starts to look more like genocide than retaliation. Who's going to hold Israeli leaders accountable to the international community? Did the world learn nothing from World War II? Did soldiers die in vain fighting fascism and injustice? Where's common sense and morality these days.
