    John Lennon – Watching The Wheels

    John Lennon – Watching The Wheels

    People say I’m crazy doing what I’m doing
    Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
    When I say that I’m okay well they look at me kind of strange
    Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game

    People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away
    Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
    When I tell them that I’m doing fine watching shadows on the wall
    Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball

    I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
    I really love to watch them roll
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round
    I just had to let it go

    Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
    Well I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions
    Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind
    I tell them there’s no hurry
    I’m just sitting here doing time

    I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
    I really love to watch them roll
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round
    I just had to let it go
    I just had to let it go
    I just had to let it go

    Vaccination: Swine Flu / H1N1 Vaccine Questions and Collection of News Articles

    | October 28, 2009

    How many people have died of the regular flu since the H1N1 scare began?
    (I found out that “about 100 people in the US die from the typical flu every day.”)

    Is the H1N1 vaccine available without mercury (Thimerosal) in your area?

    What percentage of people who got the vaccine came down with the flu?

    Are they testing those who are sick for both H1N1 and the regular flu?

    Are you comfortable with the amount of testing done on the H1N1 vaccine?

    Have you read the risks associated with the H1N1 vaccine? Google “H1N1 package inserts”

    Health Canada approved this country’s H1N1 vaccine without evaluating its safety and effectiveness on a single Canadian

    “He states that he’s been getting the seasonal flu vaccine every year for about ten years. But what you didn’t see in that clip was Dr. Oz stating that when it comes to the swine flu shot, NEITHER his wife NOR his four children will get the vaccine (although he will get that one too).”

    German officials reject charges of two-classes of swine-flu vaccines
    http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,4803801,00.html

    “The type of shot a person gets is to depend on their position in society, leading to complaints about a ’second class’ swine-flu vaccine.”

    “Politicians, certain government employees and members of the German military are scheduled to receive one type of the swine flu vaccine, while average citizens in Germany are to receive a different one.”

    “The difference between the two vaccines is that the one meant for members of the government is said to have fewer side-effects. It also lacks certain additives which are said to be present in the version for the general population.”

They studied all the Amish in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, there should be 130 autistic kids. There are four. And three of them were adopted after receiving their vaccines and the fourth one lived downwind of a… coal burning power plant. What we’ve got to stop doing is blaming the mothers, which is what they’ve done. These are not hysterical women.” Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Canadians need to know that each 0.5 ml dose of Arepanrix contains: 10.69 mg of squalene, 4.86 mg of Tween80. Also known as Polysorbate 80, it may be a hidden inductor of anaphylactic shock. One 2005 study concluded: “Polysorbate 80 is a ubiquitously used solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.”, 5 mcg of thimerosal…”

    Vaccination: "Merck never tested Gardasil for safety in young girls"

    | October 26, 2009

    Gardasil Researcher Drops A Bombshell
    http://thebulletin.us/articles/2009/10/25/top_stories/doc4ae4b76d07e16766677720.txt

    “Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, said the controversial drugs will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates and, even though they’re being recommended for girls as young as nine, there have been no efficacy trials in children under the age of 15…”

    “‘I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn’t help but question why we need the vaccine at all,’ said Joan Robinson, Assistant Editor at the Population Research Institute.”

    “Dr. Harper began her remarks by explaining that 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year. Within two years, the number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent of HPV infections, only half will develop into cervical cancer, which leaves little need for the vaccine.”

    “She went on to surprise the audience by stating that the incidence of cervical cancer in the U.S. is already so low that ‘even if we get the vaccine and continue PAP screening, we will not lower the rate of cervical cancer in the US…’”

    This is not the first time Dr. Harper revealed the fact that Merck never tested Gardasil for safety in young girls. During a 2007 interview with KPC News.com, she said giving the vaccine to girls as young as 11 years-old “is a great big public health experiment.’”

    “When asked why she was speaking out, she said: ‘I want to be able to sleep with myself when I go to bed at night…’”

    “She had been trying for months to convince major television and print media about her concerns, ‘but no one will print it.’”

    “‘It is silly to mandate vaccination of 11 to 12 year old girls,’ she said at the time. ‘There also is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue…’”

    Hallowe'en: Should Christian Parents Be Afraid?

    | October 25, 2009

    “Fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee.” Genesis 26:24

    “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’” Romans 8:15

    Concerning Halloween by James B. Jordan
    http://www.biblicalhorizons.com/open-book/no-28-concerning-halloween/

    “On All Hallows’ Eve (Hallow-Even – Hallow-E’en – Halloween), the custom arose of mocking the demonic realm by dressing children in costumes. Because the power of Satan has been broken once and for all, our children can mock him by dressing up like ghosts, goblins, and witches. The fact that we can dress our children this way shows our supreme confidence in the utter defeat of Satan by Jesus Christ – we have NO FEAR!…”

    “This is a good place to note that many articles in books, magazines, and encyclopedias are written by secular humanists or even the pop-pagans of the so-called ‘New Age’ movement… These people actively suppress the Christian associations of historic customs, and try to magnify the pagan associations. They do this to try and make paganism acceptable and to downplay Christianity. Thus, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc., are said to have pagan origins. Not true…”

    “These fundamentalists do not accept the humanist and pagan rewriting of Western history, American history, and science, but sometimes they do accept the humanist and pagan rewriting of the origins of Halloween and Christmas, the Christmas tree, etc. We can hope that in time these brethren will reexamine these matters as well. We ought not to let the pagans do our thinking for us…”

    “‘He who sits in the heavens laughs; Yahweh ridicules them’ says Psalm 2. Let us join in His holy laughter, and mock the enemies of Christ on October 31.”

    The History of Halloween Part 2
    http://web.archive.org/web/20071222181511/www.new-life.net/halowen2.htm

    “Regardless of the position you take regarding your family’s response to Halloween, if you are concerned about the evil associations with Halloween, you can rejoice that you can ‘resist the devil and he will flee from you’ (James 4:7) and that through the cross Christ has ‘disarmed principalities and powers,’ and ‘made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them’ (Colossians 2:15).”

    “I would certainly suggest using the holiday to teach our children about the triumph in Christ of God over evil. This should not be a night that we hide from in fear, but a night (like every night) when a Christian can stand confident in victory, because the One who lives in us is greater, than the one who lives in the world (1 John 4:4). ‘You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them!’ (1 John 4:4).”

    “Holding oneself apart from the world is perhaps a good thing, but sometimes this is just an excuse for being afraid. We are reminded to be ‘in the world’ and ‘sent to the world’, as well as being ‘not of the world’ (John 17:15-18).”
