Woden's Day 26 August 2009

"All the news that gives others fits to print."

Compiled By John "Birdman" Bryant

"Strike while the irony is hot."--JBR Yant

"The time for violence is when they come for your guns."--JBR Yant

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!"
-- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

"Ideas are more dangerous than guns. We don't let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?"--Josef Stalin

"[Do not] suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberty [to publish] by any pretenses of politeness, delicacy or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice."--John Adams

Search for the truth is the noblest occupation of man; its publication is a duty.
--Madame de Stael

"People will sometimes forgive you if your are wrong; but they will neverforgive you if you are RIGHT." --Socrates

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change
the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has."
--Margaret Mead

If you're going to fight, fight smart.Martyrs are a lot less valuable than victories. --JBR Yant

The key to being free is to fight back. --JBR Yant

If you will not fight for your rights when you can easily win without bloodshed -- if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly -- then you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival.
There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
--Winston Churchill

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
-- H.L. Mencken
Birdman comment:Did somebody say "The War on Terror"?

Freedom begins between the ears.--Edward Abbey

"The smallest good deed is worth the grandest intention."

The true patriot is often one who loves his country and hates his government. For this reason, the Birdman suggests that we junk the old jingoistic carte-blanche-for-the-pols pledge to the flag, and substitute the Birdman's


"I pledge allegiance to the Constitution, and to limited government and personal freedom for which it stands: Free speech and press, the right to keep and bear arms, limited taxation, secure property, sound money, the right to associate and do business freely, the right to preserve our nation and culture as the communally-owned property of its native citizens, and in general the right to be free of alien influence and government intrusion without urgent reason."

The following are books that every intelligent and educated person should read:

Alien Agenda- Jim Marrs

Remote Viewers- Jim Schnabel

The Franklin Coverup- John DeCamp

Inventing the AIDS Virus- Peter Duesberg

Defrauding America- Rodney Stich

Beyond Supernature- Lyall Watson

If your local library doesn't have them, they can probably be obtained thru an interlibrary loan request.

Poem by John Bryant:

I Am a Spirit

I am a spirit, truly free, and speaking as I ken;

I take the name of Galileo, Peter Zenger, Lenny Bruce and many lesser men;

The Keepers and the Patriarchs have silenced me as one for sure insane --

I have been silenced, yes, but do not fear -- for I shall speak again!


Poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko (1967) entitled "The Poet" :

The raven fears to peck at his eyes.

All seeing and austere,

the poet gazes,

and even in death

he is ever the same warrior,

and even in death

his enemies' terror.

Girl of the Day-An artistic study in the biology of where you came from and the restaurants you first ate at. Culled from pictures freely available on the Net. Made available as a public service to encourage white men to reproduce themselves, to help old men who are having problems with the Staff of Life, and for the lavender loveboys who don't know what they are missing.

What's more, they meet community standards of decency -- the community of the netizens of cyberspace.). NOT FOR PRUDES OR THOSE UNDER 18!!!!
