An Open Letter To An Ex

August 2, 2015 Leave a comment

Dear Ex.

I miss you. I miss texting you about every single stupid thing that happens in my life. I miss knowing that at the end of the day I had you, that when push came to shove, no matter how bad the situation might be, I knew you would be there. I miss my person, my other half and my best friend. I hate that your face, the face I was so accustomed to seeing every single day, has become just another one in the crowd.

I hate that we can now go months at a time without speaking to each other and that most of our conversations now start with anger and frustration. I’m mad at us for letting our relationship become this far gone. What happened? How did we not see this coming? How did we not feel ourselves starting to drift? I am mad at us for not fighting harder for the love that we had. I am mad at us for letting it become nothing but a collection of memories. I am sad because I don’t even know where to go from here. I don’t know what there is to be said. How do I shake the dreadful feeling of knowing that you are no longer just a phone call away? How do we find a way to fall back together just as easily as we fell apart?

I am scared that it cannot be fixed and that maybe we weren’t supposed to be forever. I am scared that from here on out, you will not be a part of my life. But what I’m most scared of is that you don’t even care at all. I am scared that maybe you haven’t noticed my absence in your life or that maybe you have, but it just doesn’t matter to you. I am scared that you have already replaced me. I am scared that you don’t look back on our time together as fondly as I do. I’m scared that our lack of a future doesn’t hurt you just as badly as it hurts me. I’m scared that you don’t miss me as much as I miss you.

However, even if that is the case, I will never give up hope that we will find our way back to each other, no matter how unlikely that now seems. I will never stop caring about you and wishing you well in life. I will silently smile from a distant sideline as you go out into the world and kick some ass. You will always hold a special place in my heart even though I may no longer hold one in yours. I will never stop looking back on our friendship fondly and will always only have kind things to say.

I don’t know what the future holds for us, but I do know one thing is for certain, I will never find another partner like the partner I found in you. Thank you for everything. I miss you more than you could ever possibly know.

All the best,
Your Former Husband

Military FINALLY Admits ‘Martial Law’

April 28, 2015 Leave a comment

The current operation is also targeting the western states with heavy emphasis on Texas.  Walmarts have been closed and are being used by the military, soldiers are tasked with “blending in with people” so not to be detected.  Yeah, sure, this is to train for overseas…..

The upcoming one in July continues this but even the military now admits it is for martial law

What do you think?  Federal government bullying the most outspoken patriotic states in the union me thinks.

Documents reveal what the United States government is no longer denying: that elite branches of the military are currently preparing for “training exercises” throughout the U.S. southwest which simulate martial law

The document reveals the training exercises are being conducted under the name “Operation Jade Helm.”

The exercises are scheduled to begin this July and continue for eight weeks. The operation will include the participation of 1,200 troops from the the Green Berets, Navy SEALS and Special Operations from the Air Force and Marines.

While the military acknowledges the leaked information is legitimate, they have termed the exercises “Realistic Military Training” and confirm that these exercises will be carried out in towns in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas as well as Utah. For whatever reason, the focus seems to be on the U.S. southwest in particular.

In the case of Texas, the military is being the most forthright about the exercises – admitting they are in the works and asking Texans living in close proximity to the operation to report anything which the military has characterized as “suspicious activity” during the exercises.

The leaked US military training document, was released by The Houston Chronicle. It perhaps overestimates the US military belief that Texans have been “historically supportive” of military exercises like these, as they believe them to be for the purposes of “fight[ing] the enemies of the United States.”

Army Special Operation Command spokesman Mark Lastoria acknowledged that the exercises are all about “covert warfare tactics and martial law.”

They are to develop “emerging concepts in special operations warfare,” he continued.

He told a US Army publication known as Stripes that the “notion” that this is training for martial law in the United States “was proposed by a few individuals who are unfamiliar with how and why USASOC conducts training exercises.”

He adds that Americans shouldn’t be worried, because they are really just training to impose martial law on cities around the world “at a moment’s notice.”

“This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.”


Skeptics, however, have asked why states like Texas and Utah, as well as a section of southern California?

Whatever the reason for the U.S. military conducting what they admit are “martial law” exercises in what they also call “realistic urban sites,” what we know for certain is that the Special Forces will be on the ground in cities and towns across the country. Whether this is for the purposes of training to oppress civilians abroad or in the U.S., it has a lot of people concerned and asking questions.

What Is Statism?

March 8, 2014 Leave a comment




1. the principle or policy of concentrating extensive economic, political, and related controls in the state at the cost of individual liberty.
2. support of or belief in the sovereignty of a state, usually a republic.

Seems the state has all the power in a Statism Society.. Now wait, isn’t that pretty much like a Democracy ?

Lets take a quick peek at Statism and how it parallels Democracy in may ways. A fine example is that Statism often requires force to implement and also maintain, would that be like our police and armies under Democratic rule?  The government grants the right to those select few that wear a badge and a gun to kidnap,coerce and collect money from and if they deam necessary kill us in the name of the safety of the state.

A Statism Society allow for divisions among its citizens. Similar to how within a democracy the state often promotes divisions based on sexual preference, religious belief not to mention the separation of the economic classes. This is a proven way to help keep a society in line. If people are busy comparing themselves to others and trying to attain the power and wealth of the few then they will not see how the government isn’t there for them but rather only about the wealth and the power it can steal from the society and its people.

A Statism Society encourages envy.  You will find that the few people in power both economic and politically will be the one’s with the majority of the wealth. You will have a few more, tho not as powerful or wealthy that the state allow to excel. Most often these people are great contributors to the state in one way or another. Then you will have the majority of the society or the slaves. The slaves are the one’s that trudge day-to-day to help keep those in power wealthy. Slaves sometimes will grumble but due to the protectors of the state whole uphold the laws and punish, kidnap or kill slaves that don’t follow the rules most will just tow the line and do as told. Many among the slaves don’t even understand the state of slavery they have been born into. They are so programmed by education, media and the constant bombardment of propaganda from the state that they believe they have freedom. The other thing about the slaves is that they are teased by the falsehood that they too, if they slave hard enough can be come one of the wealthy as well.

The Power Elite in a Statism Society will of course reward those that do as told and are good little slaves. We see this in many forms.   Those that accept what they are told or keep the state informed on those that go against it wishes, often receive token financial gain or similar rewards for their service to the state. People are encouraged to turn into the state those that go against the rules or plans. There are victimless and unjust laws that do nothing but contribute money to the state and keep those in control in a lifestyle that the slaves can only dream of. People believe that if they keep their mouths shut, do what they are told that they have a chance to become one of the Slave-masters.

In a nut shell Statism is about control.  It has rules and checks in place that destroy the opportunity for success. It puts rules in place to control others and limit their options and often results in suffering. When I look at how Statism is defined, how the control and power is wielded by the few, I have to ask how this is any different then what is called Democracy. The way I see it Statism and Democracy are one in the same. Democracy is nothing more than a fancy word to give the slaves the false impression that they have some say or control in their lives and how the society as a whole is run.

Statism or Democracy no matter how you spell it, it is all the same. Its nothing more than modern slavery.

Lies and Deception the RCMP way

March 4, 2014 Leave a comment

Here in Canada our Supreme Court has ruled that a cop can use deception (ie: lie) with a suspect about things and what ever the suspect says is still usable as long as their rights were not violated. OK so I can’t lie to them or I will be charged with a crime, but they can lie to me to get me to incriminate myself, hardly seems fair. This makes me remember my “right to remain silent”.  One thing I always keep in mind when dealing with the police either as a victim or a suspect is that they are NOT here to serve and protect me. If you don’t believe me then checkout the Oath Of Office and Oath Of Secrecy that RCMP Officers take when sworn in.

SCHEDULE(Section 14) Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act (R.S.C., 1985, c. R-10)


I,…… , solemnly swear that I will faithfully, diligently and impartially execute and perform the duties required of me as a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and will well and truly obey and perform all lawful orders and instructions that I receive as such, without fear, favour or affection of or toward any person. So help me God.


I,……… , solemnly swear that I will not disclose or make known to any person not legally entitled thereto any knowledge or information obtained by me in the course of my employment with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. So help me God.

As we can see from the above sections of the RCMP Act there is no word of protecting or serving Canadians it’s all related to taking orders and keeping secrets. No wonder the RCMP seem to act above all other authority including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Having had personal experience with the RCMP and criminal investigations I have seen first hand how they try to manipulate suspects and victims. How they find someone guilty long before the evidence is there unlike how it should be which is innocent UNTIL proven guilty. Cops are NOT your friend, they have but one mandate, one interest to “get their man” regardless of innocence or guilt. They will manipulate you, lie to you and step on your rights at every turn. It’s very important when dealing with the RCMP that you know your rights and exercise them and if possible always audio and video record your interaction with the police. This is the only way to hold them accountable for stepping on or even just completely ignore your inalienable rights. Time after time we see reports of police abuse of power, police brutality and more atrocities. It seems that the RCMP are high above the laws that they are tasked to enforce and uphold. Many RCMP members often say that they are not respected by the general public, My comment on that is respect is earned by one’s action and ways and from what I have seen of late many members of not only the RCMP but police forces in general feel they are so above the law that they don’t deserve to be respected.So who’s going to protect us from the protectors? My suggest is protect yourself, know your rights and exercise them. Never answer questions never offer information. Always be polite but never ever fall prey to their tactic of being your friend. Cops are NOT our friends. We know this just by the way they do their jobs. They will lie, mislead, fabricate things just so they can trick you into admitting something.. anything as long as they get the arrest. If you see a police stop then record it with your cell phone, you may be in a position later to help a fellow citizen whose rights have been violated. Don’t let police intimidate you, stand your ground and maintain your rights. Be prepared to be verbally assaulted, bullied and called names for standing up for yourself. The police will do all they can truthful or not to illicit a confession from you. They will say they are trying to help you, don’t fall for it they are only trying to help themselves. Any honest and truthful police officer will tell you you should never agree to be interviewed by the police. this is because they know what an interview is all about, its an attempt to catch you up and find anything they can use against you.  Bottom line is not all police are bad but many are, they are trained to be deceptive and demanding. Don’t fall for it. Know your rights well and exercise them. This is by no means a guarantee that you will not have further troubles guilty of a crime or not but at least they will have to work harder to come up with things to use against you.

Cold War, WW3 or Just the same old BS

March 3, 2014 Leave a comment

Its Cold Again

It kinda feels like the 70’s again. I remember as a teen in the time worrying about when Russia was going to “push the button”. I recall being scared, wondering what would happen, would I live would I die. Funny thing is that the threat eventually subsided and the once all so powerful USSR fell… Or did they? Seems to me the games still continue and have over the years.

As I look at the “New Cold War” I do so with much more open eyes then I did as a teen or for that matter another time in my life. Is it really a cold war, does it have the needed ingredients to be considered so? The original Cold War was about ideologue, two separate ideas being pushed on each other. The ongoing conflict is strategic both economically and militarily.

The Bigger Picture

It seems that one of Russia’s most important military bases is situated on the Crimean peninsula and the new Ukrainian government will more than likely tell Russia they don’t want it there any more. See Russia really has no where else to move their fleet stationed there. You with me so far? So the Ukrainian government cries foul when the Russian government send more troops in to “… protect Russian citizens and interests in the area”. This of course gets the US involved, for we all know that they must have their noses in everything going on it the world. So then Canada, Britain and many other countries chime in, most to condemn the action taken by Russia. Neither Russia, the U.S. nor the EU are interested in initiating a new Cold War. Regardless of their power-hungry ways, they are aware that cooperation is needed to solve some of the most pressing problems of todays world. We must also remember that Russia and the US are not the only players in the game anymore. China and India for example have equal might to the other two longtime foes now. China has much more at stake in the Ukraine then the US does. China has huge involvement in the agricultural interests in the Ukraine. Even if Russia, the U.S. and the EU decide to enter a new Cold War, it is not at all certain that they will still remain powerful enough to jam world politics and to force other nations to play by their rules.


There is no question that the  Crimean conflict is a dangerous situation and should not be underestimated, but anyone that likens this to a Cold War is either politically motivated or sadly misinformed. As we move toward a global society, a one world government and a New World Order the days of a Cold War are gone . Don’t let the smoke and mirrors fool you, the distractions take your attention. Be aware of the deceptions and seek your own truths not what you are told to believe.

Nortie’s Rant

March 1, 2014 Leave a comment

I love you.

Three very simple words of one syllable each. Often one of the first statements we make in life yet also one that is more often than not used without thought as to the ramifications or effects on others. To many the phrase is used about how they feel about other ppl and other things. Yet others its reserved for only those that are truly special. Love, it’s an easy thing to fall into and for some an easy think to fall out of as well. Many use the term I love you as loosely as they do hello or goodbye.

Love can hurt as much as it heals. Can cause as much harm as it can good. Love is the proverbial double-edged sword, a catch 22. Love is great when it two people sharing it but hell if it’s a feeling felt by only one. I have had romantic love I thought twice in my life but after the second time I realized I had never really loved before. It caused me both great joy and great pain and still till this day causes some of both. Would I give up on love?  I think often about time given to unrequited love. Time spent with  the hope that the one being loved can see the depth and pureness and realize that the right person for them has always been there.  On the other hand I sometimes wonder what I have missed out on by being so focused on one I loved that doesn’t have the same feelings. The what ifs and maybe often  cross my mind. What if I missed someone, the perfect relationship. Maybe I should let it go and move on.  One can’t help how the heart feels yet one can’t make another love them either.. see it’s that catch 22 again, damned if you do and maybe giving up before they realize so damned if you don’t. It’s a slippery slope for sure.

One thing I have learned is faith, faith that the right love is out there for everyone, that it make take a lifetime of searching but it’s there. Some turn away from love just to find out years later the love meant for them they found a long time ago. Some jump from relationship to relationship hoping to find that “one true love”. Yet other go a lifetime so closed and broken they won’t allow love in their lives and yet others turn away from love only to find that what they seek was there all along it just needed work. Love is not enough to make a relationship work, this I have also learned. If one puts as much effort into showing love as they do saying it then and only then does it have a chance to grow and over come all adversity.  Love is more then just words, its action and selflessness. Its giving of one’s self with NO expectation for to truly love another one has to want whats best for them. I guess my answer is No. I would never give up the years I spent loving someone even if it was a one sided thing, you ask why? Well to do so would mean that I would never feel, never learn and never grow. Love may hurt yes but it also makes us grow, learn and be better, it helps us see truths and realities and that is never a bad thing. If we let it love can help us become much better and much different people.

I tend to now, at this stage in my life believe the old saying that “Its better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all..”.  Yes its been a long road, at times I have questioned my whole existence but looking back, realizing how far I have come I wouldn’t want to change a thing. If nothing else the love I have had in my life has taught me lessons and the next time, if there is a next time those lessons will make a true love the best thing in the world.
