waco in NH? and Jets...

Two quick thoughts this morning...
Last night I learned about an event that I have not heard mentioned at all in the "main stream media"... Apparently there is a "waco style" standoff going on right now in New Hampshire. Apparently this couple Ed and Elaine Brown, are under the belief that they do not have to pay taxes because it is not a law. (I've had similar beliefs, but It's one of those arguments that I'm not ready to test the theory of in person.) If you want to know more about this line of thought, check out this amazing video on youtube... it's a clip from the movie (on dvd) called "America: Freedom to Fascism" by Aaron Russo.
SO anyway, right now there is a house in new hampshire where this couple was supposed to go to jail, but they refuse. So it's become a standoff with the authorities, who ad digging in for a long time of waiting it out. I learned about this via the new website I found about conspiracies called Truthera.com - you can read the article here.
I did a news search via google and found this article in the "unionleader.com" I wonder why/if there is any local newspapers covering this in NH?

ok, my other random thought this morning...
Back when the Gulf war was getting started, and back when the current Iraq occupation was getting started, I happened to notice a lot of jets and military helicopters flying around. I'm one of those people who always looks up when I hear a plane. In the last few day's I've again been noticing an increase in military jets and helicopters. I hope it's nothing and perhaps my "non-scientific" study is way off base.

OH... and this just reminded me of a great show I saw on PBS the other night... I came into the show after it had started, so I don't know the name, but I think PBS is running it more than once... It's comparing the three big religions Islam, Christianity and Judaism. It was very interesting (and a bit long). In a nutshell it talked about how similar the three religions are, and that somehow the main message of doing nice things for one another is often overlooked.

Well, just a few little heavy nuggets to ponder about today.
