By the way, if the plan goes through, there shall be 10 tunes in this post by the time I am done. But I am dealing with people and their idiosyncrasies. We’ll see. So far I have one.
(Funny, the exact time presently is 9:11)
The title means I am happy that this week is over and well done.
You know, you always have that lingering feeling that you did not perform your best, right? It’s probably just me. Anyway, I am still a working person. I like what I do but I’d rather spend the day, or just the morning thank you, playing guitar, relaxing in a hamac by the lake, cook a special dish for my partner, you get the idea…
So what do working stiffs (I am an executive aunt Mildred, I swear! (not) do on a Friday night? Let’s start with Spoonman. Look, this is the only song I like from these guys. I am eclectic what can I say.
9:27pm: OK, I realize World press and anachronistic me are not synchronized right now.
That just means that the songs I talk about are basically in reverse order. Who cares? Enjoy.
I don’t do drugs by the way. Yes, I have tried many of them. None of them compare to the calm that you get from a good conscience and a good night sleep.
The last time I tried cocaine was about 25 years ago. I was studying criminology and wanted some real samples.
Found John. He had a business selling records, CD’s, and more.
I can honestly say that I don’t like our species right now.
“Being a stimulant, it fuels feelings of euphoria, fearlessness and power, gives you an energy rush before the crash, and numbs emotions and empathy. These are of course all qualities which are ideal for soldiers who want to kill and not feel the pain”
“…According to experts, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) began production of Captagon in 2011 in a laboratory in Bulgaria and it is now manufactured elsewhere in the world. Part of the profits from the illegal trade in Captagon, experts say, is used to finance armed extremist groups that are trying to overthrow the Syrian government led by President Bashar al-Assad.”

Captagon is the addictive drug used by some of the numerous terrorists, jihadis, mercenaries and Western-backed rebels in Syria – including Al-Nusra and ISIS. Captagon (aka fenethylline, Biocapton or Fitton) was first produced in 1961 as a mix of amphetamine and theophylline. It became illegal in most countries in 1986 due to WHO pressure. Being a stimulant, it fuels feelings of euphoria, fearlessness and power, gives you an energy rush before the crash, and numbs emotions and empathy. These are of course all qualities which are ideal for soldiers who want to kill and not feel the pain. Apparently, captagon is playing a significant role in the Syrian War, both economically and in terms of its mood-altering ability. Multiple drug busts have occurred since 2010. Last year in November 2015, Turkish authorities confiscated 11 million Captagon pills (1800 kg and worth an estimated US$220 million) that were destined for Syria. Last month in October, Lebanese police seized 3.5 million Captagon pills that were headed for Saudi Arabia. Is the drug another avenue by which the Western alliance (NATO-US-UK) is trying to influence and control the outcome of the Syrian War?
There is long history of tyrants, monarchs, despots, army generals and military leaders feeding drugs to their soldiers to enhance their performance. A very early example is Alexander the Great, whose army relied on the opium poppy plant for its morphine (and from which modern heroin is made). The morphine allowed his soldiers to walk and fight with grave injuries and achieve astonishing feats of endurance. In more recent history, in both world wars, American and German soldiers used amphetamines during battle. Historian Norman Ohler recently released a book “Der totale Rausch” (which literally translates as “Total Rush”) which exposes the Nazi use of drugs during WWII. This article quotes Norman:
“… the (German) soldiers used Pervitin, a German product patented in 1937 that contains methamphetamine, which is known today as crystal meth. It was freely available as a medicine until 1939. In Berlin, it became a drug of choice, like people drink coffee to boost their energy. People took loads of Pervitin, across the board. The company wanted Pervitin to rival Coca Cola. So people took it, it worked and they were euphoric …”
The Nazi rise to power was fueled by their military industrial complex (funded by Americans and Wall St.), including IG Farben, their powerful pharmaceutical conglomerate which was the ancestor of Big Pharma today. Hitler himself was said to be addicted to opiates:
“The first thing I wanted to see were the personal notes of Hitler’s personal physician Dr Theodor Morell – … these notes were quite elaborate, describing how he treated Hitler over the years, including things like “injection as always” and “Eukodal,” which is a strong opiate.”
Can captagon explain, at least to some degree, the crazed attitude of ISIS fighters? We don’t have definitive proof, but we do have a collation of many anecdotes and quotes indicating that the amphetamine-based drug is a factor. The Washington Post collected these ones:
“You can’t sleep or even close your eyes, forget about it,” said a Lebanese user (featured in this BBC documentary) “and whatever you take to stop it, nothing can stop it.”
“I felt like I own the world high.”
“Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling.”
“There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon.”
“So the brigade leader came and told us, ‘this pill gives you energy, try it,’ ” he said. “So we took it the first time. We felt physically fit. And if there were 10 people in front of you, you could catch them and kill them. You’re awake all the time. You don’t have any problems, you don’t even think about sleeping, you don’t think to leave the checkpoint. It gives you great courage and power. If the leader told you to go break into a military barracks, I will break in with a brave heart and without any feeling of fear at all — you’re not even tired.”
The world was first horrified by the cruelty of mercenaries like ISIS who were defiling historic sites and beheading prisoners. Was some of that barbarism due to drug-induced states?
The Cuban based website Prensa Latina released a short article in 2015 claiming that “according to experts, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) began production of Captagon in 2011 in a laboratory in Bulgaria and it is now manufactured elsewhere in the world. Part of the profits from the illegal trade in Captagon, experts say, is used to finance armed extremist groups that are trying to overthrow the Syrian government led by President Bashar al-Assad.”
The article, however, does not mention which “experts” it got its information from. While this fits in with what we know of NATO – a US-controlled, aggressive military organization which invades sovereign nations like Libya on the flimsiest of pretexts to gain territory and control for the New World Order – there still needs to be more research done to determine the source of captagon. Other sources suggest it is being produced in Sunni rebel areas.
The word captagon, coincidentally, is a mix of the words “captivate” and “Pentagon” – interesting given the addictive nature of the drug and the potential US role in providing it. War and drugs have a long history together, whether it be because the soldiers are been fed drugs by their commanders, or because the war itself is being fought over the land and fields that grow the drug-producing plants (Vietnamese and Afghani heroin, Latin American cocaine). In his article CIA Drug Wars Could Explain Why Syrian ‘Rebels’, ISIS Violence Fuelled by Captagon Pills, journalist Patrick Henningsen writes that:
“the deliberate strategic dispensing of potent narcotics in a paramilitary, insurgency theater … is a common technique employed by US intelligence agencies … more often than not, these drugs are the X-factor which fuels the extreme violence we see, and it’s used to terrorize local populations and produces more extreme graphic imagery for western media consumption.
The result: it aids in the generation of western fear, and public calls for Washington & Co to “step-up” its military activity in the region – in order to “keep us safe” in cozy America. A vicious cycle. Isn’t this what we’ve seen in Syria so far?”

While jokes about students only eating ramen packs and KD seem to be as old as education itself, a new survey suggests it’s not a laughing matter.
About 40 percent of Canadian students are considered “food insecure” meaning that they have “limited or inadequate access to food due to insufficient finances,” according to the survey.
The survey, entitled Hungry for Knowledge, was conducted by Meal Exchange, a non-profit organization seeking to”eradicate hunger in Canada.” The report was published last month and included data from five Canadian university campuses.
Over half of the students surveyed reported that they skip buying healthy food in order to cover essential expenses like rent and tuition.
The results found that “nearly two in five students surveyed experience some form of food insecurity.” Of the 4,013 students that completed the survey, 31 percent were found to be “food insecure” while 8.3 percent were fell in the category of “severe food insecurity.”
Only 31.5 percent of respondents cited employment as their primary source of income, while 58 percent said that they “regularly rely on a few low-cost foods in order to avoid running out of money to buy more food.”
The Meal Exchange has identified 104 hunger relief programs on Canadian university campuses that aim to combat food insecurity faced by current undergrad students. The various programs consist of “physical food banks or pantries, anonymous food lockers, free grocery store gift cards, and hunger related financial aid,” an increase from 51 in 2004
The decades-long shit spiral of rising tuition and increased costs of living have finally started resulting in some government action, although not the kind that puts food on your table. The Ontario government revised their student loan policy so that, as of November 1, recent graduates are not required to begin repaying their fees until they earn at least $25,000 a year. Provincial governments across the country have begun revising their student loan programs, with Newfoundland and Labrador switching its loan program entirely over to grants.
Despite such minor concessions, the survey concluded by saying that “as the cost of tuition and living continues to increase, along with the demand for highly educated and skilled workers, food insecurity among post-secondary students will continue to be an important health, social, and economic issue.”
Until then, KD and no-name ketchup it is.

When we think of Amish people we think of a simple life, free of modern advancements. Most of us view them as foolish for not using the advantages of convenient technology and even look down on them for not conforming to the norms of mainstream society. But if we look at the statistics, the Amish are much healthier than the rest of America. They virtually have no cancer, no autism, and rarely get sick. What are they doing different from the rest of America? Let’s look at some of the things they are doing different (here).
A recent study published in the journal Cancer Causes and Control has revealed that Amish people have virtually no cancer within their population, and are considered the most healthy people in America.
Researchers from Ohio State University originally launched a study on the Amish population to see whether rates of cancer would be higher due to their lack of conventional medical care. What they found, however, shocked them.
Here is why the Amish Rarely Get Sick or get Cancer
The Amish have chosen the traditional wisdom of our ancestors over our “modern” way of living. They live by the practices of past generations.
1. The Amish Don’t Get Vaccinated.
Did you know that Amish people rarely have any learning disabilities or autism. There have been only 3 cases of autism among the amish in which the kids got vaccinated (here). Instead of crediting their lack of autism to the absence of vaccines, mainstream society credits it to a superior gene that the Amish possess. In spite of constant pressure from the government, the Amish still refuse to vaccinate. You can read more about the dangers of vaccines – here. Vaccine-nation: Poisoning the Population, One Shot at a Time
2. The Amish Eat Organic, Locally Grown Food.
The Amish not only avoid prepackaged and processed food, they actually grow all of their food using organic farming methods. They raise their own animals; their food is natural and gmo free (the dangers of gmo). It’s important to note that they eat seasonal food during the harvest months, and save the rest by canning and fermenting. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are nutritionally higher in value. They are filled with anti-oxidants that are of great benefit to our health. Anti-oxidants fight free radicals, which helps you stay healthy and young. Thus, the lack of ADHD, food allergies and asthma can be undeniably contributed to their diet.

3. The Amish Eat Plenty of Healthy Fats.
The Amish have a very low obesity rate despite their high fat diet. Their eating habits by all means are not low fat. They eat plenty of butter, meat, eggs, raw dairy. Foods like butter and raw grass fed dairy contains a lot of fat soluble vitamins such as A, E and K2. It’s important to note that Vitamin K2 is very insufficient in modern diets. All that low fat nonsense has depleted our bodies from these essential nutrients. Vitamin K2 is particularly important as it is involved in calcium metabolism. Vitamin K insufficiency leads to many diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and even cancer.. ..
