Pay close attention to Upcoming events & News Cycles
Some of us are watching the t.v. news, others won't, some read the internet and seek out the lies from the truth, but we should all be paying very close attention, as we always do, to every single headline or hint, because that's what we've been reduced to, looking behind the headlines and official announcements and terror alerts.

When a story breaks on the bush owned media, take it for what it is, but look underneath it and consider the source, and seek a counter source. We all realize that we are being played, but we must question every single story, and look at it from all angles.

Especially with the 06 and 08 elections on the horizon. Expect dirty tricks, monumental lies and distortions, secrets, conspiracy theories, real and imagined. Remember not be be reactionary and remember you are an individual, not a non thinking member of a herd. Don't stampede and get trampled, keep your cool, be analytical, don't panic.

Just look at the hundreds of examples in the last six years of stories that turned out not to be as first reported, agendas that turned out to be other than those stated. When a sensational story breaks, now more than ever, step back and look at it objectively, I'm just sayin'.
