And so looking at that Gregorian calendar on the wall, that holiday or workers of the world unite day of a May 1st day to be observed seems to be tomorrow. And so in other thoughts, that topic about an Arizona law and a California immigration debate seems to be in the news a lot lately. So much that it seems to be the headline of the day. And it seems to have something to do with people being able to travel freely, populations and an illegal immigrant law in Arizona or California. And shouldn't people be able to travel freely in the world anywhere? And so I came across this event as one of those facebook events in my facebookaholicness where part of it reads something like a rally as follows:
"Do I Look "Illegal" Day
In defiance of the new bill in Arizona and in support of the Arizona citizens who will face harassment every time they step out their doors, the call is out for everyone to ask the question: "Do I look "illegal?" during the week of May 1st to May 8th. The focus is on raising awareness on the day of May 1st but by the overwhelming response, putting out this message is extending for the rest of the week.
Post the question as your status on Facebook. Throughout the day, send the question out on Twitter. Ask one another the question, "Do I look illegal?" Hopefully, this will get all of us thinking and discussing what exactly does "illegal" look like..
Finally, wear shirts, buttons or hold signs saying, "Do I look 'illegal'?" and take pictures to either send the Governor of Arizona and/or post them here..
NEW INFO: If you're in SF, there will be the usual May Day March supporting immigrant workers. This year the protest will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2010, assembling at noon at 24th and Mission streets in San Francisco, joining other May Day protests in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and many other cities. Show up, wear your Do I Look 'Illegal?' shirts, buttons etc..
This idea was initially from my roommate over a conversation the other night. Then I saw that a t-shirt was being sold that had the same message. So it made sense to take it a next step and share the idea of a "Do I Look 'Illegal?'" Day with my FB family and friends..
And this facebook event has 77,153 confirmed guests and a host of comments to go along with it.. Wow! Is that a record for a facebook event invite? And so I thought to repost the following posts that I have posted on this blog before some time a while ago that have something to do with humanity travelling freely.
For what reason is the number of that passport immigration law that prohibits freedom of travel amongst humanity anywhere on planet earth, and that Section 666 Social Security Act, cashless society, national I.D., the number of your name to receive any state services and everything else in between thing, 666? Is this that save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast thing in the book of Revelations. Is this written in prophecy somewhere. Did George Orwell or Nostradamus predict this? Is that a coincidence or on purpose that this law has the same number of that beast thing. And who or what is the beast, and what is that mark on ones right hand or forehead. What does that mark represent or mean, if anything. And what's up with that UPC bar code photo that I placed in this blog entry. And for what reason do all universal product codes contain this number. What the heck does that mean? Is that the number of the beast, the number of man? And what's that New World Order, Verichip and RFID tag thing all about. Big Brother, Brave New World and technology are here and that's a whole another blog posting. And I have heard so many green card immigration nightmare stories about green card marriages, lotteries and green card everything else in between. Of people leaving a country and not being able to return for whatever reason. And the stories of loss of life while crossing a border, whether by land or sea. And for what reason are there boarders, divisions, restrictions, barriers and territories of land in this world. And for what reason are people not free to travel anywhere in the world without the permission of someone else. Who invented this concept. Is it possible to undo this passport, visa, citizenship, where are your papers to come here law so that everyone can be free to travel anywhere in this world. For what reason does this concept exist. And who is a foreigner. Aren't we all strangers in this land. Is another world possible. No one is free when others are oppressed. It is Sunday today, day of God, a day of rest. Or is that Saturday, the Sabbath, Sabado. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
and then this one also....
And on this day is Sunday, that sabbath day of rest, or is that Saturday. And yet I find myself blah blogging away for some reason on this blog. And for some reason that verse from the bible comes to mind, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head". And that other verse, "A brother is born for adversity". And a friend mentions to me that war is a business. Is war a business? And is it George Orwell's statement from that nineteen eighty four movie, the war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. And another friends mentions that another friend has been denied entry to that country of the United States, or deported from a country for various reasons. And what does that word immigration mean, to migrate, to travel? Does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for that. And I have heard horror stories of whole families being separated, destroyed and torn apart from this idea of Immigration And Naturalization Services, INS company that seems to be some form of modern day slavery to me. And what about those visas, green cards, forms, applications, petitions, employment, interviews, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, residence alien from outer space, illegal aliens, refugee, asylee, settlement, immigrant, nonimmigrant, genealogy, nationality, naturalization things. What does this all mean. Are we all not foreigners and strangers in this land. The whole idea that one can prevent another from travelling freely from one place to another on this planet of earth I can not comprehend. And has humanity become slave to computers, that modern invention of technology, to where one is no longer a human, but becomes a robot to technology, a machine, some sort of beast like thing. No one is free when others are oppressed. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Overstimulated is a student-curated takeover of a commercial retail space in lower Manhattan's South Street Seaport, only a few blocks from the student's university: PACE. A bridge project pulling from the student's own work to those of their mentors and professors, and extending the collaborators that the student's have been experimenting with outside of the university, this large scale group show of peers, faculty, and friends represents and celebrates the transition from campus life into the hustling New York art-world.
Almost 50 participating artists with work ranging from fabric installations, interactive sculptures, live painting, photography, film, collage, drawings, and digital illustrations create an immersive environment to explore and lose yourself in throughout the week's packed schedule of events filled with live music, theater, poetry, and film screenings.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.
Need a date? Looking for a date? Well, this posting is not exactly about online dating, or speed dating or any of those other modern ways to find that perfect someone in your life, or at least to find someone in your life, though this posting is about the Date Night Movie. And from what I know throughout my travels here on planet earth, it is always fun to go to the movies usually. And in case you haven't heard of that Date Night Movie yet, you may hear about it when it finds its way to the theaters starting April 9th, 2010 with movie stars Steve Carell and Tina Fey. And you can also find out about it before hand or at some point when you watch that video trailer that happens to be posted in this blog entry above. And with its seemingly self explanatory title, I would assume that this movie has something to do with dating and relationships, a timeless topic I think. And the movie describes itself as a couples adventure over the weekend or something like that. And so if you see this movie yourself I would imagine you would be able to describe it in other ways also. Have a great movie day.
1. Why children need medications. Hugh? What a horrible headline. Even the dogs, children and animals are now exhibiting symptoms of depression for the pharmaceutical war industry to target with bug spray drugs for profit? Next it will be the plants to be diagnosed. Is no one immune from the war industry on planet earth. And this article goes on to say something about ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity and depression- children and young adults today seem to be diagnosed with these conditions with frightening regularity. And Psychiatry Kills. Abolish forced psychiatric treatment. Psychiatrists are mass murderers in white coats. No one is free while others are oppressed. For all things mental health rights and alternatives to the mental death system, Mind Freedom is a good website to visit. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
2. Chinese New Year starts this weekend. Why did I save this one? Oh, because it says something about some worry that 2010 is the year of the white tiger, a symbol of jinx in Chinese history.
And there is a lot of other news clippings I would like to blagh about at the moment, though they are passing me by. Have a great news headlines blogging day.
Hey Bloggers, and this posting happens to be about 2012 and the end of the world, or the end of the world as we know it. The end of Kali Yuga and the beginning of the age of aquarius. And I have blaghed about this topic on this blog in times past. And I am not exactly sure what to say about that topic as this is just another one of those attempts to maintain content for this blog whenever possible. And so in attempt to find something to blah blog about on this day in my blogaholicness I guess, I'll just recycle this blog, if that is the correct phrase to use and repost this post from long lore ago:
12.21.2012. What do those numbers mean to you, anything? December 12, 2012, that could mean the London Olympics are coming. Well if you are a religious fanatic reader of prophet and psychic predictions like me, it could mean a whole lot. It could mean doomsday, Armageddon, the Apocalypse, judgement day, the end of the world, a new world order or some new age, spiritual transformation, evolution, higher universe. It could mean the beginning and the end of World War III according to Nostradamus. It could mean the meteors, comets, asteroids, aliens and spaceships are coming to planet earth. Could it mean the anti christ and the Pope will appear? Oh, the Pope is already here. It could mean that the sun will reverse its own magnetic pole. It could mean the solstice and moon cycles will end, or at least it could mean that is when the Mayan calendar ends in 2012. The Maya believed that their world would end on December 21, 2012 and that Orion and Pleiades told them so. All of these sciences, beliefs, theories, philosophies, astrology, years and calendars are too complex for me to understand, but at a glance I believe in them all, or what does this mean, will the world really end? Will some world changing event take place in 2012? The clock is ticking. What does the future hold? Wait and be watchful for the return of something. In 5yrs, 6 months, 8 days, 19 minutes and 32 seconds of 5 years and 193 days as of this writing, 2012 is here. 12.21.2012, what do those numbers mean to you?
Note: Lo, and behold. Here is one of many secrets that the yoga guy says in the text below him in the drawing above, he depicts the progression of humanity.. A-L=12, halfway through the alphabet, O-Z=12, halfway through the alphabet. ALOZ, ALLAH. 12.21.2012, 0102. OLOZ, AL-OZ, ALOZ, ALLAH. M and N the middle of the alphabet = the Millennium, the head of Christ, Grist, the Holy Grail, The Holy Ghost, a thousand years shall Satan be let loose? And there is much more to be written in the text below the yoga guy above (Yahweh,Jehovah,JHVH,YHVH,YHWH, YOGA), part of the trinity.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.
Alvin and the Chipmunks. I've heard of them, as aren't they those animated cartoon characters with really squeaky voices or something like that. And who hasn't heard of Alvin and the Chipmunks by now with those really cool songs they play to listen to. And Alvin and the Chipmunks seems like one of those family friendly movies where parents and kids can pass it down to all generations with those fond memories. And now you can buy it now. Alvin and the Chipmunks is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. And this double DVD pack includes "The Squeak Along" bonus disc with even more music, More Munk Mayhem and singalongs. And what better way to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks than with two for the price of one. And what's also really cool is that now you can munk yourself. That's right. You can now get munked with Alvin and the Chipmunks the squeakquel and customize your munk with clothing and accessories. And you can also create an audio recording to go along with it. There are also other fun games to play and videos to watch at their website as well. With Alvin and the Chipmunks, squeakiness has never been funner.
BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS
1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
2 . Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
4. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
5. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest.. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells..
6. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
7. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
8. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
9. Talking Rarely - I definitely don’t have this problem J
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain
The main causes of liver damage are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3 . Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil.
As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.
We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'
The top five cancer-causing foods are:
1.. Hot Dogs
Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.
2. Processed meats and Bacon
Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.
4. French fries
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .
5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

Hey bloggers, and this posting happens to be about the video contest. And in case you haven't heard, videos seem to be all the rage in these high tech, seemingly internet everything communications days. And this posting isn't about just any video, this posting happens to be about the iLASIK Video Contest. And there are some great prizes to be won as part of this iLASIK Video Contest like an HDTV package and a Flip UltraHD camcorder. And Abbott Medical Optics Inc. has actually announced who the winners of this video contest are and you can see their video at iLasik. And I have heard of that lasik before, as isn't that the procedure that helps one with a better vision. And those "You Gotta See This" videos are really interesting to watch. And if you register at their website, you can receive a free bottle of complete multi purpose solution. And what else can I blog about lasik that has not already been said before. With ILasik, finding those lasik videos and more is just a website visit away.
