UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...


Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao

PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

Ancesrty Research: Porteous et al

Well that about wraps it up. So odd, because if anyone was English it had to have been deceased grandmother; she admired the royals and endeavoured to talk like them and told me off for picking up too much 'geordie' speak when I started secondary school. Alas, her maiden name is a derivation from these lads and lasses.

"It should be noted that, for the purpose of this research, when discussing the Porteous/Porteus family, we are including members of families bearing the many variant spellings, such as Portteus, Porteouss, Porteious, Portieous, Portious, Portiss, Portice, Portes, Portess, Portis, Portas, Pertus, Portus, Porteuse, Poythress and Porthouse, and others."

I had many reasons for naively presuming all that side of the family were English but I guess they don't really look English either. Besides some of 'em have red hair also - not definitive, nothing is, but in terms of likelihood, we'll call it corroborating evidence. In ancestry research, everything is relative. (oh I hope you found that as punny as I did...)

So that has the scoreboard at 1/16 Welsh, 2/16 Irish and most of the rest Scottish (and in this 2/16 case, perhaps somewhat Norman also, according to link below), barring a few (~4/16) that I would rate as 'known unknowns', either English, English-Norman or Scottish. Fun stuff.

Oh and look, Veitch, as in The Love Police, and Tweedie, as in Cheryl's name before she sold out and became Sir Cowell's mass manipulation vector. lol, small world innit?.

PS/Disclaimer: A lot of surnames are ambiguous and you can't always tell, and the worst thing to do in this is jump to conclusions in any way. For instance someone else I know who is not related to me, found that one of their ancestors with an apparently English name, was actually an Irish person who had switched their name back in the mid 1800s, seemingly because no-one in this country would employ him. Sad. So, stuff happens, and names cannot be relied upon as more than a rough guide.

Besides, the more you dig the more names you find, and the more fragmented your picture becomes, of course. So you rely on generalisations with a decent degree of likelihood.

Ethnic differences are a lot like the colours of the rainbow (and by using that analogy, I in no way intend to further the great PC myth, that ethnic differences are primarily colour-oriented). If you look closely enough, there is no single point where red ends and orange begins, or where blue ends and indigo begins. (This is why white nationalists have such a nightmare deciding "who is white" - an impossible task!)

But when you take a step back, it would be madness to deny that there are different colours in a rainbow, and it would be equally mad to say that there are no ethnic differences, either.

Undebunkable Chemtrails Video That The "Debunkers" Ignore...

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

(but why they are used, no-one fully knows...)

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

I'm Already Against The Next War
Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
