    Atheist campaigner Richard Dawkins

    RICHARD DAWKINS, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

    Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

    The pair believe they can exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998.

    The Pope was embroiled in new controversy this weekend over a letter he signed arguing that the “good of the universal church” should be considered against the defrocking of an American priest who committed sex offences against two boys. It was dated 1985, when he was in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which deals with sex abuse cases.

    Barack Obama, Former CIA Agent

    – by Deanna Spingola, 14 Mar. 2010

    I recently had the pleasure of talking with Dr. James David Manning who has been ministering to the people of Harlem since 1981. He is now the Senior Pastor at ATLAH which stands for All the Land Anointed Holy, Manning’s inspired name for Harlem as of September 14, 1991.

    Dr. Manning heads the Columbia Obama Treason Trial which is scheduled for May 14-19, 2010 at the ATLAH building at 38 West 123rd Street in ATLAH, New York, 10027. Unfortunately, the Department of Justice and the Supreme Court have failed in their duties to uphold the Constitution and address the legitimacy and other questionable issues surrounding the White House’s current resident. So, Dr. Manning, being a longtime resident of the Columbia University area, the school that Obama allegedly attended, began an intense investigation into Obama’s educational background and discovered some profound discrepancies.

    ok, before you go read the rest of that article i want you to take a look at what he’s standing in front of

    Yes, that’s the dreaded denver airport

    So the airport’s official website says that the name of the mural is called “Peace and Harmony with Nature”. Really? At the center of the piece, saddened children with extinct animal and plant species. In the background, a forest on fire and further back, a city on fire.

    An interesting fact about that city is that it has been retouched and painted over many times during the years, as if it represents something important for the creators. It seems surrounded by an ill colored haze, as if it was attacked by a bio-chemical weapon.

    One of the children holds a Mayan tablet depicting the end of civilization.

    The Value of Psychotic Experience

    great difficulty in getting away with is psychiatric heresy

    Recent history is the record of one vast conspiracy to impose one level of mechanical consciousness on mankind.Allen Ginsburg

    Basically, the setting and goals and patterns of behavior, which are imposed mechanically or externally, and without understanding, produces a rigid structure in consciousness that blocks the free play of thought and the free movement of awareness and attention that are necessary for creativity to act:

    Creativity and What Blocks It
    The Psychopathology of Work

    This is a warning of what happens to spirit when it becomes divorced from its soul pairing, when it ceases to find its reflection in soul – and loses it. It becomes the solitary heroic rational ego which deludes itself into believing that there is no soul. It creates a correspondingly delusional world for itself which, deprived of its connection with a personal and personified counterpart, opens on to the soul’s depths, as abysmal as deep space and as impersonal as the subatomic realm.

    In our modern society the image and mythic process has been taken over by corporations that directly control advertising and, indirectly, the entertainment industry. Powerful erotic images are used for the sole purpose of selling consumer products; the side effects of this commercialization have a profound impact on the sexual imagination and identity of vast numbers of people.

    Journey Into Savagery

    Ok, this has been a dream of mine for almost 20 years:  Get a large abandoned building in the warehouse district part of town, you know the type of building: over a hundred years old, freight elevator, bricks, big wooden floors, loft style spaces. Create a storefront, simple gallery space cafe incubator style accommodations.   Have at least one large open area for large art shows, music events, fundraising events etc.  then the rest of the building is used for housing the artists, studio space, workshops, printing presses, kiln, darkroom, any type of equipment that helps artists make art.

    Believe me I’ve been close to realizing this dream with 2 very large projects that involved lot’s of    people but they were business world geared ventures   (they never listen to the crazy artist guy, it’s always “hey did you get that new website up? we need those t-shirts? you don’t want us to pay you to let you perform at our show do you?”)

    I’m currently involved with The Poor Souls Society people, who seem to be on there way to achieving something similar to this

    So far i have found one amazing group in London who seem to get it

    these guys are amazing and have come up with several things i never dreamed of       Crisis center for ending homelessness

    scroll to bottom of this page to watch the video

    go to that second link and watch the video, you will be amazed, Please God help me get something like this going here

    Ok, here’s how it goes, a simple black/white image on the front. Make sure you have some info about your good will intentions, charity etc. make sure to put web address on there. On the back you can sell sponsor logo space.

    Create a not for profit 501 c 3 for all the  money to go to/ come from, and to manifest all your good works from.  For instance this one here is for this blog site and it’s quest to do what God’s will is.

    All the money will go toward this goal, we don’t have any sponsors for the back yet, so if you want to get on this near the top, give us a call.

    Ideally this would have an event date, time and location also. then to lower the per print cost you get a stack of heavy paper to increase the print count with paper that costs cents instead of shirts that cost dollars. If you work your formulas out right you can literally get shirts for as low as 2 bucks a piece and have most if not all of your costs covered by the sponsors on the back of the shirt.   This is a real shirt, and soon to be a real not for profit 501 c 3, with a board fo directors consisting of church leaders from multiple denominations, theologians and philanthropists

    contact Stephen at my custom union printed T-shirt business in St. Louis MO

    Everyone wears T-shirts, turn on a tv to a show on starving kids in Africa, if they poorest of the poor wear t-shirts, everyone does, walk down the street, count the number of t-shirts, open up your drawers, count how many are in there.  Now imagine making a custom thing that you can put whatever you want on it and imagine that thing cost you as low as $2 to make and can be sold for $10 or more.

    Remember the cost of printing goes down as number of prints go up, those prints don’t have to be on T-shirts.

    Great advertising for your cause, great morale booster for your volunteers.

    Know God’s Will

    Artists, Writers, Bloggers, Researchers, needed

    I’m Serious About this folks, i printed the first one yesterday, i actually have white ink in the screen right now, I’ll get a pic up soon, i promise

    i have 3 dark shirts, ringers a couple of them, all size large I’ll let em go for $10 you cover shipping (we can do the us mail little box thing it’s like way cheap)

    I will probably be selling the white tee style with black ink (it will look like the pic above) for $10 as well to start with

    if i get some sponsors for the back, cost will go down to like $5 (lower for bulk with your logo on back)

    and if i can get these things goin right, we can get the cost down to like $3 to someone buying it and still raise millions for charity

    literally save the world,  I’m not kidding

    I hereby pledge to have totally open books on these shirts from day one, this is my gift to the world

    seriously

    as of right now there is only one and I’m wearing it

    I Seriously do not get how no one can understand this I Literally know hundreds of people who put on events

    • you can get your cost per piece down to $2 (or lower) per shirt, no more than $5 bucks per shirt total cost printed
    • you also get prints on paper that can potentially sell at fine art prices ($100+)
    • and you can easily have them paid for before you print by sponsors

    This seems so simple and people come to me all the time and end up being disappointed with prices and costs

    Biggest mistakes people do when they try to get shirts printed

    • they want lots of colors on little amounts of shirts
    • they have no idea what they want from the artist and make him redo and change the concept 20 times
    • they expect you to be creative immediately on a complicated thing that they themselves have spent months trying to visualize and still can’t
    • they complicate the shirt more and more and want it faster, there is a wide variation on types of prints and how difficult they are
    • a print shop loses money on orders all the time in hopes of that bigger job that comes next
    • a steady client gets things printed for way less than they should
    • a one time client HAS to be charged a high amount unless the job is big enough, find that tipping point

    What can I do?

    I am currently writing and painting, asking God everyday to guide me in my endeavor. I can print T-shirts Very inexpensively. I will be working on some specifically for this website/blog thing i got going here.

    Some things i need to get to be more productive

    camera, take pics of my art

    video cam, start a documentary on this subject

    wireless router, so i can do this on my comp instead of Reeds

    cables and some repairs to my speakers so i have a full pa system for doing shows
