Treating Depression With Botox Injections

Are you serious? The so called medical community is now making claims that for curing the winter blues it is perfectly safe using Botox injections. It’s interesting folks. Botox to treat depression?

What they refer to as Botox is Botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. Did you read the word toxin?

Excuse me while I kiss the sky!

If my Wiki page is correct, then Botulinum is the most acutely lethal toxin known to man, intravenously or intramuscularly when inhaled.

“In cosmetic applications, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face.” Go ahead and take your chances.

Okay. So wrinkles are a natural part of aging. None of us can stop it. If there was a safe reliable way, all of us would probably jump on board. To inject a toxin into a perfectly healthy body is equivalent to jumping out of a perfectly built airplane. It does not make any sense.

Warning: “Most commonly, botulinum toxin can be injected into the wrong muscle group or spread from the injection site, causing paralysis of unintended muscles.” There can be serious side effects!

Excuse me while I kiss the sky! (Wrinkles included.)

The Instantiation Of Modern Empire

On Sunday December 2, 1804 the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte occurred, marking ‘the instantiation of modern empire’.

The French Win Big At The Battle of Beachy Head (1690)
On July 10, 1690 the French executed a great naval victory over their opponents in the Nine Years’ War, namely the English and Dutch. The Battle of Beachy Head (1690) seems to be a turning point in English history, which followed the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

The Glorious Revolution involved the overthrow of Catholic King James II of England, with the aid of Protestant Dutch William III (Stuarts), Prince of Orange. Actually it was an invasion of the Dutch Republic, attempting to reduce the power of France and the absolutist Louis XIV the Sun King.

From start to end of the Nine Years’ War (1688–97), England outbuilt the French at a rate of four vessels to one.

Aftermath of Beachy Head is crucial, supposedly causing England to panic. Although the French had prevailed and upon failing to capitalize on previous opportunities, the Allies gained superiority against the French.

Consequently, on July 27, 1694, at least 322 years ago, the Bank of England was established, thus changing the economic history of England.


INTRODUCTION
Those who seek to re-write history find it a very formidable undertaking, because it has become a “vested interest” with the official historians. Any historian who refused to portray Cromwell as a savior of the British people, pointed out that his real name was Williams, and that he belonged to a small group of men who had been enriching themselves at the expense of the Monarchy and the people, while bringing a group of foreigners from Holland to batten on the British people, would not find his books recommended for use in our schools or universities.

THE PRELUDE IN BRITAIN
It is essential that we make ourselves conversant with the growth of the forces which paved the way for the establishment of the Bank of England and the debt-system. Anyone who cares to study British history during the six and a half centuries from the Norman Conquest, until the financiers arrived at the invitation of Cromwell, will find that the Monarchy did exercise its sovereign right of issuing money.

In Queen Elizabeth’s reign Britain produced some of the finest minds the world has ever seen. Both Bacon and Shakespeare have had a tremendous influence on Western civilization – particularly Bacon, to whom we chiefly owe the modern system of experimental science based on inductive reasoning.

THE FORMATION OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND
The modern banking system did not exist in Britain until Cromwell’s regime. In his history of England, Macaulay says that banking had not started at the time of the Restoration (1660). Merchants had their strong-boxes and paid out honest coin on demand.

Whatever the present supporters of the banking swindle may say, the man who was primarily responsible for the Bank of England frankly admitted what he was doing. In a plan for forming the bank which he drew up at that time, he said: “The Bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing.”

Needless to say, the majority of the Whigs favored the establishment of the Bank. The first Governor was Sir John Doublon, a Dutchman.

The ownership of the Bank of England has always been a matter of much speculation, although its close contact with International Jewish finance is well known. In 1696 the law laid it down that stock in the Bank might be held by “any and every persons, natives and foreigners, bodies politic and corporate, who may so subscribe.”

The following interesting report in connection with the Bank of England appeared in the “Manchester Guardian” on December 28, 1839, and was republished in that paper on January 6, 1940:- “A special general meeting of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce and Manufacturers was held at their offices, Town Hall Buildings, King Street, on Thursday last, to receive a report from the board of directors on the effects of the administration of the Bank of England upon the commercial and manufacturing interests of the country. (The report of the meeting, which ran to five and a half columns, contained the lengthy report of the directors on the Bank, the concluding paragraphs of which were):

“Although it scarcely comes within the scope of their present object, the board will add a reflection upon the subject of the undue privileges possessed by the Bank of England. That such a power over the property, and, as has been seen, the health, morals, and very lives of the community should be vested in the hands of 26 irresponsible individuals for the exclusive benefit of a body of bank proprietors, must be regarded as one of the most singular anomalies of the present day – that the secret of these individuals, veiled as they are even from the eyes of their own constituents, should decide the fortunes of our capitalists, and the fate of our artisans – that upon the error or wisdom of their judgment should depend the happiness or misery of millions – and that against the most capricious exercise of this power there should be neither appeal nor remedy; that such a state of things should be allowed to exist, must be regarded as a reproach to the intelligence of the age, and as totally irreconcilable with every principle of public justice.

If instead of having been handed down to us from our ancestors, it had been proposed in the present day to create a joint stock bank, to be endowed with the powers and privileges enjoyed by the Bank of England, the common sense of the country would have revolted against the attempt to establish so dangerous a monopoly.”

A Bitter Disappointment For Atlanta Fans

Super Bowl LI: The American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots played the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Atlanta Falcons. It was the first time in history that a Super Bowl game went into overtime. New England came out on top, but Atlanta dominated three quarters of a hotly contested battle. The second half was unbelievable and it ended up with a final score of 34-28.

The saddest moment in Atlanta sports history!

After the first half of the game with Atlanta going full steam ahead, the city police in Atlanta were worried that an all night party might create problems for the squad. What a complete turn of events, after 51 years worth of Super Bowl memories.

If you were favoring Atlanta, you are shocked and disappointed, because Atlanta had the game all wrapped up. A very determined quarterback for New England, Tom Brady, clearly made the difference. There were catches on both sides that were historical in nature. If you were favoring New England, you could not be more pleased.

Brady walks away with 5 Super Bowl wins. Another mark in history. What was it Brady said before the game? He wanted to win one for his mother? His wishes came true with a great deal of sweat. Crazy game no doubt.

Super Bowl LI was played at NRG Stadium in Houston on February 5, 2017. The network that aired the game was Fox.

“A spot from longtime advertiser Budweiser garnered controversy before the game for depicting Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch’s emigration to the United States from Germany, its broadcast coming on the heels of President Donald Trump signing an executive order that bans travelers from several Muslim nations.”

Get this! Prizes can be won for those watching in Canada, even win a new car! It may pay to watch the Super Bowl on Canadian TV Literally — Bell Media adopts new tactics in bid to lure Super Bowl viewers.

Look On Top Of The Dome

If you carefully examine the top of the Capitol dome, you will discover the Statue of Freedom, originally named Freedom Triumphant in War and Peace. “The statue depicts a female figure wearing a military helmet and holding a sheathed sword in her right hand and a laurel wreath and shield in her left.”

Freedom is a huge bronze figure 19½ feet tall and weighing 15,000 pounds. Freedom faces east towards the main entrance of the building and the ‘rising Sun’, and she is very similar to Columbia. It’s hard to keep up with all of them.

At a cost of a mere $23,796.82 she was constructed, excluding the price of installation. Work was stopped in 1861 because of the Civil War (1861-1865), and in 1862 she was temporarily displayed on the grounds.

Ironically, Jefferson Davis then Mississippi senator, yes later to be Confederate president, was actually in charge of capitol construction. Davis was unhappy with the original liberty cap (similar to France’s bonnet rouge), and had them change it to a helmet. Just like the Madame Defarge character in the book A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

She was cast in five main sections by Mills, whose bronze foundry was located on the outskirts of Washington, and instead of paying those high wages to the current foreman on hand, the task went to a slave, Philip Reid. Sounds like modern times doesn’t it?

William A Cox notes the following: “… the facts are that [Freedom's] successful taking apart and handling in parts as a model was due to the faithful service and genius of an intelligent negro in Washington named Philip Reed (sic), a mulatto slave owned by Mr. Clark Mill, and that much credit is due him for his faithful and intelligent services rendered in modeling and casting America’s superb Statue of Freedom, which kisses the first rays of the aurora of the rising sun as they appear upon the apex of the Capitol’s wonderful dome.” Emphasis mine.

The final section was raised on December 2, 1863, to a salute of 35 guns answered by the guns of the 12 forts around Washington.
