This may be ignored by mainstream media, but it is one of the most important stories currently happening: Suicides are surging among United States troops Here are the facts:  The upswing of suicides has caught some by surprise because of 2010 and 2011 numbers leveling off.. Robert Burns of the AP writes this: Suicides are surging among America’s troops, averaging nearly one a day this year - the fastest pace in the nation’s decade of war. The 154 suicides for active-duty troops in the first 155 days of the year far outdistance the U.S. forces killed in action in Afghanistan - about 50 percent more - according to Pentagon statistics obtained by The Associated Press The AP dispatch can’t play up these numbers enough: Almost 1 for every day .. We are seeing something unique in our current wars and soon to be post wars (and maybe soon to be new wars).. Battle grounds new and different. People don’t die in big numbers last in past wars… now injuries are soaring along with mental issues and PTSD a…

A graduation message resounding throughout the nation

“Across the country no fewer than 3.2 million seniors are graduating about now from more than 37,000 high schools. That’s 37,000 valedictorians … 37,000 class presidents … 92,000 harmonizing altos … 340,000 swaggering jocks … 2,185,967 pairs of Uggs. Even if you’re one in a million, on a planet of 6.8 billion that means there are nearly 7,000 people just like you. You’ve been pampered, cosseted, doted upon, helmeted, bubble wrapped … feted and fawned over and called sweetie pie. You see, if everyone is special, then no one is. If everyone gets a trophy, trophies become meaningless. … We have of late, we Americans, to our detriment, come to love accolades more than genuine achievement. The fulfilling life, the distinctive life, the relevant life is an achievement. to do whatever you do for no reason other than you love it and believe in its importance. The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you’re not special. Because everyone is.”

Surprise: the UK GUARDIAN gives a somewhat glowing profile of Alex Jones..He led the protests in Virginia this weekend against the ‘new world order’ at Bilderberg—and because of Infowars’ Jones more and more news outlets are covering Bilderberg every year.  Like him, love him, hate him.. you can’t ignore him. And, as my headline says, to my surprise, the GUARDIAN doesn’t seem to hate him at all.. The story goes.. Jones quickly took control of the situation, using his unmistakable voice– amplified by a megaphone – to launch into a full-throated denunciation of the global elite, the erosion of rights and liberty, and the establishment of federal “reeducation camps”. “The best bullhorner there is,” one protester said of Jones’s oratory skills. When Jones began describing how he likes to use multiple megaphones end to end, a demonstrator called him “the people’s L-Rad”, a reference to a sonic weapon police departments sometimes use against protesters. No doubt, more heckles from the mainstream …
