The “Oregon Crud” Illuminati Card

If your not familiar with the game; its a standalone card game made by Steve Jackson Games. “Cards come in several types, including Illuminati, Plots, Groups, Places, Personalities, Resources, and New World Order cards. The various cards are printed with two different colored backs and are collectively referred to as simply “Groups” and “Plots”. The premise is that you play one of the Illuminati groups (the Adepts of Hermes, the Bavarian Illuminati, the Bermuda Triangle, the Discordian Society, the Gnomes of Zürich, The Network, the Servants of Cthulhu, Shangri-La, and the UFOs) bent on world domination. You seek to control a predetermined number of Groups (such as the Boy Scouts, the Men in Black, the CIA, etc.) and/or complete a Plot to achieve your goal before your opponent(s).”

Sounds like a very interesting game doesn’t it? Well after searching on the web I found out this game has some very interesting similarities to different events that have happened over the past couple years. Such as 9/11, Earthquakes and other disasters.. I will be doing a full in-depth post on these illuminati cards sometime in the near future but for now: The Oregon Crud

Triangle Lake Residents test positive for pesticides from logging companies

Anti-pesticide activists brought more than complaints to a state Board of Forestry meeting on Friday afternoon. The Triangle Lake residents, who for years have been lobbying and agitating against aerial sprays of herbicides on the timbered slopes around their homes, came with data that showed two herbicides in the urine of 21 community members, including children.

The samples were tested by Dana Barr, a research professor at Emory University’s Environmental and Occupational Health Department. Barr, a former researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is considered an expert in assessing human exposure to a variety of toxic compounds. She found two powerful weed killers, 2,4-D and atrazine, in the urine of all 21 residents who submitted samples to her lab earlier this year.

Speaking by phone from her Atlanta office, Barr told the Board of Forestry that population­wide studies have shown that most of us have detectable levels of some pesticides in our bodies, but 2,4-D and atrazine are found in just 2 to 4 percent of the population. Barr found both chemicals in all of the 21 Triangle Lake residents she tested. They went to a doctor’s office to give their samples and the doctor forwarded the samples to Barr’s lab. Samples were taken during the winter before spring spraying began, and some residents submitted a second sample after helicopter sprays occurred near their homes. The second samples showed an increased amount of the herbicides, she said.

“The data suggest these individuals are being exposed to these herbicides,” she said. Day Owen, for example, showed a 31 percent increase in the amount of 2,4-D and a 129 percent increase in the amount of atrazine in his urine between the first and second tests. His neighbor Eron King had a 54 percent increase in 2,4-D and a 163 percent increase in atrazine between the two tests. Her two sons also tested positive for the weed killers.

No one, not even Barr, knows how they were exposed. Barr presented information at the second of two meetings the Board of Forestry held specifically on pesticides. The board oversees the Department of Forestry, which manages state forests and sets the rules that govern logging on Oregon’s hundreds of thousands of acres of privately owned forests.

It had been previously thought that the human body quickly flushes such toxins out, but Barr said this new data supports growing evidence suggesting that fat tissue might actually store herbicides, meaning they clear more slowly from the body than previously thought.

Board member Peter Hayes asked Barr for suggestions about what to do next. “A simple drift study would be useful,” Barr said. “How (the exposure) is occurring I’m not sure.”

Barr’s presentation was just one of several at a three-hour long work session. Pesticide industry representative George Ice, of the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, described new research being done in the Alsea area that compares the environmental impacts of current logging practices to those of the 1960s. The results are still being analyzed but show much less harm to the environment, he said.

The three hours of discussion included passionate statements by people who live near private forests and say the aerial sprays are making them sick. Maya Gee, an organic farmer, said she has been repeatedly exposed to harmful chemicals that have made her ill since moving to the Triangle Lake area in 2006. She is among those who tested positive for the herbicides.

“Enough is enough,” she said as she opened a suitcase and pulled out books about the harmful effect of pesticides and passed them out to board members. “I don’t want these chemicals in my body.” Owen, his voice rising, threatened to sue the state for what he said was failing to follow the best science in regard to permitting herbicide sprays. “We found out just two days ago, virtually 100 percent of us have atrazine in our urine. Imagine what it feels like to be told that,” he said.
