SURVIVORS OF THE ALIEN INVASION

Are you afraid that an “Alien Invasion” might wipe out the human race?  Are you concerned about Armageddon?  Are you afraid that looming signs of the “End of Days” are all around you?  Do you think the NWO may be planning your extermination to reduce population?  Well, meet some people whose ancestors already experienced it.  There are a few of them still living among us.

 Learn more about the culture and history of the original citizens of the American Continents, before they were hunted almost into extinction by the Caucasian European Invasion.  Before Columbus, The Spanish Conquistadors, The Pilgrims and the hordes of ignorant, filthy, greedy Caucasian European Invaders migrated in their blood-thirsty millions to the Americas there were estimated to be 100 Million people already living here.  Caucasian Europeans systematically set about slaughtering every man, woman, child on the entire continent with guns, fire and blankets infested with small pox.

VISIT TO PICASSO

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

I own a video cassette copy of a film (The Mystery of Picasso) showing Pablo Picasso painting on a plate of glass, filmed from the opposite side.  As an oil painter myself, I found it utterly mesmerizing!  I was delighted when I found an earlier film on YouTube (in 2 parts below) showing similar footage of Picasso at work in his studio sixty-three year ago, in 1949.  (This film is nearly as old as I am!)

Visit to Picasso is a Belgian documentary film from 1949 directed by Belgian filmmaker Paul Haesaerts. In an effort to capture the nature of Picasso’s creative process, Paul Haesaerts asked the Spanish painter to apply his magical brushstrokes to large glass plates as Haesaerts filmed from the other side. This actually predates the more famous art film The Mystery of Picasso (1956) by Henri-Georges Clouzot in which Picasso also paints to large transparent canvases as the director films from the other side. The filming took place in Picasso’s studio in Vallauris. In 1951 Visit to Picasso was nominated for best documentary by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).  Even if you are not an artist or art connoisseur, you may appreciate this film.

A POSITIVE RESULT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION

The National Child Labor Committee, an organization dedicated to the abolition of all child labor, was formed in 1904. By publishing information on the lives and working conditions of young workers, it helped to mobilize popular support for state-level child labor laws. These laws were often paired with compulsory education laws which were designed to keep children in school and out of the paid labor market until a specified age (usually 12, 14, or 16 years.)ti

In 1914 the Arkansas state Federation of Labor placed a child welfare initiative on the ballot prohibiting child labor, which the voters passed.

In 1916, the NCLC and the National Consumers League successfully pressured the US Congress to pass the Keating-Owen Act, the first federal child labor law. However, the US Supreme Courtstruck down the law two years later in Hammer v. Dagenhart (1918), declaring that the law violated a child’s right to contract his or her own labor. In 1924, Congress attempted to pass aconstitutional amendment that would authorize a national child labor law. This measure was blocked, and the bill was eventually dropped.

It took the Great Depression to end child labor nationwide; adults had become so desperate for jobs that they would work for the same wage as children. In 1938, President Franklin D. Rooseveltsigned the Fair Labor Standards Act, which, among other things, placed limits on many forms of child labor.

TREE THOUGHT tree

“Thought is a force – a manifestation of energy – having a magnet-like power of attraction. You say “I” feel; “I” think; “I” believe; “I” know; “I” will; etc., etc. Now which is the Real Self? The Mental States just mentioned, or the “I” which is the subject or Real Cause of the mental phenomena? It is not the Mind that knows, but the “I” which uses the Mind in order to know. “
