Albert Einstein once said that "If at first an idea does not sound absurd, then there is no hope for it." Here is an absurd idea, one I share with an exponentially growing number of people. What is it? That WTC Building 7, which was struck by neither plane in the 9/11 attack yet collapsed in the same free fall manner, did only hours later with the help of a demolition team. That's it, that's what all this is about, implying that some events in the official 9/11 account could not have taken place. That's the wild conspiracy.

"A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new, North as well as South."

In Nigeria, the coming trial of Wiwa vs. Shell promises, if anything, a disturbing look at a microcosm of Big Oil's influence on governments around the world, particularly our own under eight years of Bush and Cheney and the Democratic leaders who enabled them. Did events that transpired in Nigeria back in the 1990s foreshadow the outright seizure of government in the United States by oil interests today?

For your sake above all else, the suspected terrorist deserves rights; all rights that an American citizen enjoys simply because "suspected terrorist" does not mean "convicted terrorist" yet both terms are now legally equated; in full mockery of justice and reason.

"Among the excesses of Nero’s reign, are to be mentioned the horrible cruelties exercised against the Christians in various parts of the empire, in which inhuman transactions the natural barbarity of the emperor was inflamed by the prejudices and interested policy of the pagan priesthood.The tyrant ... satiated his fury against them by such outrages as are unexampled in history. They were covered with the skins of wild beasts, and torn by dogs; were crucified, and set on fire, that they might serve for lights in the night-time. Nero offered his gardens for this spectacle, and exhibited the games of the Circus by this dreadful illumination. Sometimes they were covered with wax and other combustible materials, after which a sharp stake was put under their chin, to make them stand upright, and they were burnt alive, to give light to the spectators."
