This is just a little blurb about my personal experience in sharing 911 truth information with others. I just recently received a batch of 911 Press for Truth and 911 Mysteries DVD's from DHS which I will be showing at house parties and also giving away. Many thanks, DHS, for this invaluable service.
While awaiting my DVD's, I left a copy of Loose Change at my friend Zeke's house. Zeke is one of these people who is extremely hyper-sensitive about world events, so I really didn't think he would ever watch it, because he gets really, really upset about this kind of stuff and thus tries to insulate himself in order to function and maintain emotional stability. He told me when I left it that he didn't think he could handle watching it. However, he and his roommate have lots of friends coming in and out of their house and I just said something like, "Hey, you don't have to watch it. I'm just leaving it here for anyone who would like to see it." I also wrote my name and number on the DVD cover in case anyone had any questions.
So anyway, I'm walking with his roommate one night while a group of us were on the way to a concert, and his roommate says, "Hey, I watched your crazy conspiracy DVD. That was really interesting!" I let the "crazy" comment go since I feel my personal mission is to share the information, let people come to their own conclusions and if they have any questions, I am happy to share what I know. I just responded that I was glad he watched it and left it at that.

Re: Less Faith, More Reason
It is amazing that Professor Pinker could raise so many valid points on the value of scientific literacy and the dichotomy of faith versus reason while failing to address, among the other socio-historical allusions in his piece, the greatest example that illustrates all of his points.
No issue paints the interaction between science, reason, faith, and their impact on society in more stark relief than the events of September 11, 2001. One faith in particular is held responsible for the destruction of the three towers (yes, three) at the World Trade Center, and while we would expect such a significant accusation to be based on sound science and reasonable standards of evidence, such is not at all the case.
Honest scientists are hard-pressed to explain, for example, the fact that pools of molten steel were discovered in the rubble piles of WTC 1 and 2 (the twin towers) and WTC 7 (the 47 story building that collapsed at 5:20 p.m. though no plane hit it and it suffered minimal damage from the collapse of the towers.)
Former NYPD Officer Craig Bartmer was a 9/11 First Responder and a committed worker at Ground Zero. He, like many others who worked to clean Ground Zero, has developed respiratory illnesses as a result of the toxic dust inhaled at the site. Also like many others who were physically affected by the attacks, Craig Bartmer is now combating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In this interview he details his eyewitness account of the collapse of World Trade Centre Building 7. He also speaks out against the official 9/11 story, the lies told by the EPA about the air quality at Ground Zero and the critical need for a fresh independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

Kevin Barrett, a University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer and Sept. 11, 2001 conspiracy theorist, laid out his views on why officials accounts of the terrorist attacks are incomplete during an event Thursday at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh that drew interested listeners and protestors.
Barrett came to UWO as part of an event held by the Campus Greens about Sept. 11, 2001 and academic freedom.
Barrett said in his address that Sept. 11, 2001 was the catalyst for both the war on terror and the on-going war in Iraq, the USAPatriot Act and domestic spying.
"9-11 was the excuse for all this," Barrett said. "It behooves us to make sure this story merits this response."
Throughout Barrett's presentation, and before he even arrived on campus, the College Republicans held a rally to protest Barrett's views and his teaching appointment at Madison.
Barrett's presentation focused on why academia is the place for questions to be raised about what happened on Sept. 11, 2001 because scholars are trained as critical thinkers. He urged students to read the officials 9/11 Commission Report and read books that explain the problems with that report.
Barrett then began laying out his case for why the official account of the Sept. 11 attacks is wrong. Barrett claimed that Sept. 11 was a false flag, or war trigger event.

Carefully, gradually, the courts are nibbling away at Canada's anti-terror laws. They did it last week when an Ontario Superior Court justice ruled that secrecy provisions of these laws contradict freedom of the press. They did it again yesterday when another Ontario judge declared the very definition of terrorist activity is unconstitutional.
The rulings represent a sharp rebuke to those parliamentarians who rushed through the terror laws in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington. They also call into question the current obsession with terrorism as a unique, world-defining evil.
In yesterday's decision — related to the terror charges brought against Ottawa computer software developer Momin Khawaja — Superior Court Justice Douglas Rutherford concluded that the central definition of what constitutes "a terrorist activity" contravenes constitutional provisions that guarantee freedom of religion, expression and association.
Under the 2001 law, a terrorist activity is defined as an act of violent intimidation that is motivated by religion, politics or ideology. Yet, as Rutherford noted, the government has never been able to satisfactorily explain why mass murder carried out in the name of religion or ideology is somehow worse than mass murder carried out for reasons of profit or personal pathology.
At the time the law was passed, the then-Liberal government's only defence for this motive provision was that, without it, terrorist crimes would be no different from ordinary crimes.
Which, as Rutherford said, is precisely the point.
"The average person would be hard-pressed, I daresay, to recount much about the motives of some if not all of these notorious crimes (such as the 9/11 attacks)," he wrote. "Just what political, religious or ideological objectives or causes the perpetrators felt they were supporting with their actions is largely lost on the populations affected. And for good reason. It doesn't really matter."
What's more, he wrote, the decision to focus on religious or ideological motive will inevitably lead to a chilling effect on the right of Canadians to think and believe what they wish.
Those who are not terrorists, he writes, will inevitably be tarred because they happen to have the same religion or beliefs as those who are.
Right now, anti-terror laws are focused on Muslims. But Rutherford quotes approvingly from an analyst who argues that the law is sufficiently broad that it could be easily used against people with all kinds of beliefs — from environmentalists to anti-abortion advocates.
Ironically, the judge's decision could end up pleasing both fans and critics of tough anti-terror laws.
As a close foreign observer to the US voting system, especially after the 2000 and 2004 fraudulent presidental votes, now, I'm proud to note
the following activism to protect your vote.
These are really good signs. Make me proud of you, remember, some here think you get what you deserved by electing G.W.Bush twice.
I'm not one of those...

November Victory Within Reach
Election Protection and GOTV Urgently Needed
In 2000 and 2004, many of us believed Democrats would win the elections. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of voters were prevented from registering and illegally purged from voting rolls. Many faced widespread intimidation and suppression, were forced to wait in line for hours, were denied provisional ballots, and did not have their ballots counted. Voting machines broke down and irregularities abounded.
There are two things you can do to help prevent these abuses from costing us another election. First, you can join with me in helping the Democratic Voter Protection program. You can assist in early voting, poll watching, and tracking voter irregularities and complaints. We will make sure you are placed with a program in your area.
