Sphinx Timeline 1698 - Present Day

The Great Sphinx in Egypt was buried for several hundred years before it looked like what we see today. Some archeologists even believe it has been buried and uncovered many times before the most recent excavation.

John Anthony West along with Robert Schoch, and many others including Graham Hancock, archeologist and author of Finger-Prints of The Gods, believe the Sphinx is far older than mainstream Egyptologists have concluded. 

There is noticeable water erosion damage on the sides of the body of the Sphinx, which can only be caused be years of heavy rainfall.  Strange enough the last time there was heavy rainfall over a long period of time in Egypt was 9,000 to 12,000 years ago. With that said that would mean the Sphinx would have to be at least 9,000 years old, and thats at the very least, the Sphinx could easily be as old as say 10,000 to 15,000 years old.

In the words of Graham Hancock “we are a species with amnesia” our species looks to be far older than we initially suspected. But mainstream will not except this evidence because it would mean everything they’ve been teaching us for years was wrong.

Another strange fact is the story of Atlantis comes from Egypt, it was told to Plato by his Grandfather, and his Grandfather was told the story from ancient Egyptians. Maybe the Sphinx and the Pyramids are the last monuments of some ancient advanced culture, and who we know as ancient Egyptians simply moved in, and were just as confused about these structures as we are today.

Our past is far more wild than we can possibly imagine. We’ve been advanced before, but something terrible happened that forced us to start over, and knowledge was lost.

90 Days, 90 Reasons: REASON 20


by David Cross

Think of the alternative.

This is specifically meant for the voters who voted for Obama and are disappointed in him and subsequently on the fence about voting for him or resigned to not voting for anyone at all.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of legitimate reasons why you should not vote for Obama. You were lied to, seduced by yet another smooth talking politician who promised you hope and change. Although let’s be honest, short of electing a born-again monkey with downs syndrome, anyone who replaced Bush would be considered “a change.”

And yes, after three years of Obama, we still live in a country with an ever-peeling veneer of “democracy” that is run by and for the moneyed power brokers and their vested interests. A country where cancer patients smoking medicinal marijuana in the privacy of their home participate in a criminal offense, but knowingly manipulating the markets and stealing from pension funds goes, not only unpunished, but lucratively rewarded.

And true, we still live in the most violent first world country on earth, with increasingly lax restrictions on the freedom to buy assault weapons online. And we still spend more of our precious decreasing tax dollars on “defense” than the next ten countries combined.

And right, it is accurate to say that gay couples are still treated like second, actually make that, third class citizens who, in some cases, can’t provide a loving home to beaten and abused foster kids stuck in a rotating door of loveless “families” headed by abusive and psychotic welfare queens simply because they’re “fags”.

And unquestionably, the banks, insurance companies, brokerage houses and really, all financial institutions have gotten away virtually untouched with the biggest theft of the people’s money since Rome was sacked by the Visigoths.

Oh my god…I could keep going like this into the next morning.

So let me tell you why you should hold your nose, take a deep breath, and swallow the bitter pill of voting for a rather ineffective disappointer-in-chief—because of the alternative. And the alternative in this case is an exceptionally heartbreaking example of, potential leader of the “free” world.

Mitt Romney is a craven, out-of-touch, capitalist robot (and not the fun kind either) with an understanding and compassion for the working class sourced from brief, sweeping platitudes told to him by his staff just before having to meet one. He doesn’t give a shit about you…or your mom, or your friends, or your children. I mean, he cares in the sense of, “you shouldn’t have to be so poor if you really, truly work hard. That’s why I want to be your president”. But his ideas are, ironically, about weaning the very people his policies displace, off the welfare teat.

In no small part, a lot of the voters that Romney appeals to are part of a backwards, ignorant electorate who truly believe that our current president is a Kenyan Marxist with an evil plan to let Muslim fundamentalists take over the world while he gleefully gives the good Christian Right’s money he’s stolen to lazy niggers and spics. They so desperately want FILL-IN-THE-BLANK in and Obama OUT! Many of these folk, left to their own devices, would make teaching certain parts of science that contradict the Bible illegal and punishable by jail time. They would defund and then outlaw certain aspects of woman’s health care. Officially strip gay people of what little rights they have fought very hard for and now “enjoy”. Defund what pitiably small public funds there are for the arts (created by “fags” and “left-wing radical hippies”). That’s what they want to do and would certainly be more emboldened to do with a potential eight years, in not longer, of right-wing, conservative rule.

History provides a very succinct, undeniable look at what these two parties would (try) to do if in power. Take a look, and, even though Obama has not been very successful (and Congress is in great part to blame but still), when faced with the alternative, well…please vote Obama in 2012.
