    Remembering Carnival Traditions, Part II

    in Culture

    The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.


    A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.


    A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.


    A children's and adult’s parade close the lively month with brilliantly costumed and decorated troupes and floats.

    A Carnival of Evil

    in Politics Conservative

    We are back after a long hiatus. There is just too much happening to ignore it.



    The Charleston Church Shooting: Certainly the shooter is evil and the event is tragic. What is really behind it? Were SSRI drugs involved?
    The Presidential Election: It is looking like a victory for the Bush-Clinton Dynasty may be inevitable.
    Builderberg 2015: What did this elite group of tyrants plan for the rest of us?
    Obamatrade: We are being tag teamed by the Republicans and Democrats to install globalist government over a lange portion of the world economy.
    The Pope: He wants world government and wants it bad. He claims to advocate for the poor while sitting atop the greatest concentration of wealth in the world. He is also involving the Catholic Church in the global warming scam. This is a throwback to when The Church charged anyone who claimed the Earth was round was a heretic.
    Climate Scams: If the data don't fit (the global warming computer model), you must change it.
    Escaped Convicts: The news is saturated with the story of two escaped killers. Meanwhile, the feds are turning loose hundreds of criminal illegal immigrants to kill and kill again.
    Highway Robbery: People are being openly robbed on the highway by the police, and no charges are filed. It is called "civil forfeiture." It is also a lack of due process clearly prohibited by the US Constitution.

    6-24-15- Dr. Hildy and Marc the Arc: * 2012: NOW PLAYING EVERYWHERE *

    in Health

    Wednesday, June 24, 2015, 1:00-3:00PM Pacific
    (2:00-4:00pm Mountain; 3:00-5:00pm Central; 4:00-6:00pm Eastern


    NOTE from Marco*:


    Overheard: "Ha. 2012 came and went... and nothing happened! Haha!!"


    It's a trick to lull Earthlings into a false sense of security, and as always, the wolf really comes the third time while YOU are not even listening anymore.


    Tell the peoples of Fiji or The Maldives - who have water bubbling up through the streets at high tide - that 'nothing happened'. "There's a now this cockeyed notion that IF something is really occurring 'As It Is Written", it  should look like the movie 2012, all happens in a day...and, though we WILL get to the day -or days- of GREAT upheaval, on this episodic I will lay out in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS exactly how  '2012: The Movie' if st-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out over 5 years would allow you to see for yourself what is actually occurring on Earth NOW.... this VERY moment... this EXACT second... RIGHT THIS INSTANT." ...........MORE>>>>>
