LOTR Trilogy Marathon

On a whim, I paid $30 for a ticket to the trio of films on the big screen. What fun! At the end of the credits, a very long list of the members of the LOTR fan club rolls by. How does one get their name on that list anyway?
These movies are always enjoyable and often feel like I am watching a video game. An RPG. Just the way the scenes play out. Call me weird sure, but that is my opinion.
I am looking forward to The Hobbit in under a week. Just fun to live in a fantasy world on occasion.

Last of the FOIA responses

Today's mail contained what I figure to be the final Freedom of Information Act responses from our distinguished government agencies. 

CIA FOIA response

US Secret Service FOIA response 

So, what I take away from all of these is that, in the government's eyes, I do not yet exist. That won't last long though, soon the whole world will know my name. I am Will Robertson and I am running for president in the year 2020! 

Thank you,

Freedom

We the People A survey released for Independence Day in the U.S. shows that Americans cherish their freedoms. The poll, conducted by Vanderbilt University’s First Amendment Center, found the most important Constitutional right to Americans is the freedom of speech, followed by the freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. But when asked to name any of the guarantees in the Constitution’s First Amendment (freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble and the right to petition the government for the redress of grievances), 49 percent could not name even one. Worse, 53 percent said the press has “too much freedom,” and 35 percent thought the government ought to have the power to approve stories that newspapers publish, up from 20 percent just two years ago. (AP) ...“Ignorance, forgetfulness, or contempt of the rights of man are the only causes of public misfortunes and of the corruption of governments.” —Declaration of the Rights of Man (French National Assembly, 1791). - Copied from i.thisistrue.com 

More FOIA Requests

I have received two more responses, one from the Sacramento FBI Office and the other from the DIA. The Defense Intelligence Agency response surprised me, as I assumed, incorrectly I might add, that their letter would contain similar language to the CIA's. The DIA may be a member of the alphabet soup of agencies, but their response is more honest and straight-forward. View for yourself below. 

Each item is less than a megabyte in size and each is two pages, the first being the envelope and the second being the letter.

DIA FOIA response

FBI Sacramento Office resonse

I am surprised by the speed of the government's response. I submitted my FOIA paperwork at the beginning of the month. I like how the DIA apologizes for the delay. Personally, I think this is rather quick. Anyways, I submit these for you to laugh at. That is all.

The news and the views

What are we doing? The media cannot be trusted to give an honest assessment of our world. By media, I am referring to that which is commonly known as the "mainstream media outlets," such as CNN, MSNBC, ABCNEWS, FOXNEWS, and others who accept government propaganda as fact. There are numerous independent sources that can be heard and trusted, though those voices are often small and far apart. One of those independent voices of honesty is Alex Jones in Texas. He can be heard across this great nation on satelite radio and shortwave. Be informed. Freedom be real. Keep an ear to the future. WJR
