Agenda 21 EXPLAINED, full version

Presented 11/28/2011 Copyright 2011 John Anthony

Here is a detailed presentation on what is really in Agenda 21 and the sustainable development movement as defined by the UN. How it will ultimately compromise your property rights..

Regarding Ms. Bruntdland: Some have suggested she is merely a Democrat and I am way off base. First off, Norway does not have a Democratic Party, but rather Socialist democrats. Hopefully there is a difference. Internet research can be a challenge, so I respect those who engage in it! However, check out the XX Congress of the Socialist International in NY. Gro was the first VP of the Socialist International whose goal is to interact with labour, social democrats and socialists worldwide to spread the socialist concept of democracy. It is quite possible to be member of the Democratic Party and a Socialist at the same time. It is members like Gro whose desire it is to move the Democratic party more toward the Social Democratic Party.

I also want to thank “6or8pack” for pointing out my error in mentioning that Betty Perry’s nose was injured by handcuffs. In fact, she slipped during her interaction with officers and hit her nose on the steps. Betty was aware of local ordinances, but chose to ignore them. This landed her in the holding pen. This error is mine.

Some have suggested they have “read Agenda 21 ” and there is nothing dangerous in the book and besides, the document has no power to override their Constitutional right to own and control private property.

To read the book alone, without reading the preceeding and following documentation and activites would be somewhat like looking at a map of Brazil and feeling you now know how Brazilians think and feel.

The name A21 refers not only to the actual book, but to the entire sustainable development movement as defined by the United Nations dating back to the 1970’s through today. That is why it is important to not only listen to the entire video, but research on your own to gain more information. Since this presentation was completed vast new volumes of information have been compiled. Check the sources in the back of the presentation and the United Nation’s own websites to draw your own conclusions.

Thanks for viewing the video and for your observations. John

2012 WTF 24 – The Dept of Labor Banning Farm Chores

By Kurt Sloan
2012 WTF 24 – The Dept of Labor Banning Farm Chores – I grew up in Ohio farm country, and had a great childhood there, but now new rules by the Dept of Labor would change how those farm kids I grew up with would grow up today.
The Department of Labor has stated that it is putting the finishing touches on rules that would apply more child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.  Under the rules, children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”  “Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”
The new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, would also revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, replacing them instead with a 90-hour federal government training course; and would prevent kids from doing 4-H and FFA projects if they are not conducted at their parents’ house.
According to the article below, when pressed by the American Farm Bureau regarding why they felt the need to release these new rules now, the DoL indicated it was because the number of injuries are higher for farm kids than in non-ag industries, HOWEVER a US Dept of Agriculture study released recently says that farm accidents among youth fell nearly 40 percent between 2001 and 2009, to 7.2 injuries per 1,000 farms.  I guess they missed that report.
Cherokee County Farm Bureau president Jeff Clark declared the rules were “so far-reaching, kids would be prohibited from working on anything ‘power take-off’ driven, and anything with a work-height over six feet…” including most farm equipment.  He went on to point out that the “anything ‘power take-off’ driven” clause would also prohibit children under 16 from using battery-powered screwdrivers, and other power tools, since their motors, like those of a tractor, are defined as “power take-off driven.”
Additionally, the new rules say that jobs that could “inflict pain on an animal” would also be off-limits for kids, but they don’t bother to define what “inflicting pain” means.  So if putting a halter on an animal causes it discomfort, does that mean kids can no longer do that?   Montana Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg complained that the animal provision would also mean young people couldn’t “see veterinary medicine in practice … including a veterinarian’s own children accompanying him or her to a farm or ranch.”
Kansas Republican Senator Jerry Moran blasted Hilda Solis for getting between rural parents and their children.  “The consequences of the things that you put in your regulations lack common sense, and in my view, if the federal government can regulate the kind of relationship between parents and their children on their own family’s farm, there is almost nothing off-limits in which we see the federal government intruding in a way of life.”
To me, this just seems like more of the gov’t overstepping its bounds to control the people of America, trying to control how we raise our kids, instead of operating as representatives of the people’s wishes who elected THEM (or in this case elected the people who put Solis and company in their positions).

Google Tracked iPhones, Bypassing Apple Browser Privacy Settings – WSJ.com

Google Tracked iPhones, Bypassing Apple Browser Privacy Settings – WSJ.com

This article is in the WSJ today and all I have to say is that it’s not too shocking.  I’m pretty sure many of us saw this coming.  Google is just getting too much power these days.  There’s just no way to get away from them if you use the internet at all.  I don’t even want to think about what could be next. I wonder if this has anything to do with Google’s new privacy policy?

Google Inc. and other advertising companies have been bypassing the privacy settings of millions of people using Apple Inc.’s Web browser on their iPhones and computers—tracking the Web-browsing habits of people who intended for that kind of monitoring to be blocked.

The companies used special computer code that tricks Apple’s Safari Web-browsing software into letting them monitor many users. Safari, the most widely used browser on mobile devices, is designed to block such tracking by default.

Google disabled its code after being contacted by The Wall Street Journal.

The Google code was spotted by Stanford researcher Jonathan Mayer and independently confirmed by a technical adviser to the Journal, Ashkan Soltani, who found that ads on 22 of the top 100 websites installed the Google tracking code on a test computer, and ads on 23 sites installed it on an iPhone browser.

The technique reaches far beyond those websites, however, because once the coding was activated, it could enable Google tracking across the vast majority of websites. Three other online-ad companies were found using similar techniques: Vibrant Media Inc., WPP PLC’s Media Innovation Group LLC and Gannett Co.’s PointRoll Inc.

See the rest of this article at WSJ online.  It’s definitely worth a read.  Just so you know.
