    I’ve mentioned a number of times the use of subliminal imagery by the New World Order to try to manipulate the “rank and file”. A number of such manifestations already have been seen.
    Not necessarily a subconcious graphic manipulation, things like the backward flag on U.S. soldier, National Guard and some police and firemen’s uniforms; on Air Force One; on all American airlines that cross international borders; on SpaceShip One; on the space shuttle; and on Greyhound buses, who seem to have a long standing cointract to ferry troops to debarcation locations can provide a dissonance many might be overtly unaware of. In addition to marking rampant violations of human rights that are related to the New World Order, meaning no one can go through legal procvess to oppose them.
    A\n unnaturally prevalent piece of symbology which is an evident method of mind control for the gullible and unwitting is the huge arcing curve which has been given the name the “swoosh”. It occurs in an enormous multiplicity of cases in logos and illustrations, even where it’s not appropaite. It’s in the logo for Vytorin, Sunbeam, Ryder Trucks, CoroWare, DirecTV, TowerStream, Deportes Telemundo, NSSTC, A. Duie Pyle, Cottrell, LAZ, Arriva Medical, Jersey Inspections LLC, Miami Lakes AutoMall, PharmaAccess, IVG Stores, SureWest, AB Champ, StartIn Business, Covenant Allergy & Asthma Care, Tank Solutions, Salon Express. Good Housekeeping even temporqarily irrationally changed their seal mark from an oval seal like mark to an open swoosh oval.
    Another frequent graphic treatment, apparently intended as backup for or an assistance to the NWO’s hoped for mind control effects from digitalizing all television signals is the gratuitous breaking up of images or even entire screens into small block like pieces, resembling pixellation. That, too, occurs even if unnecessary or overtly unreasonable. A commercial for Kleenex, one for Starkist Tuna, the ad for “Person on Interest”, the ad for the movie “New Year’s Eve”, the ad for “Touch”, 90% of all imagery on “Inside Edition”, the cover for “The Best Science Writing Online”, a commercial for, a commercial for Lyric hearing aids, the seque screen for “48 Hours”, a commercial for eHarmony, the segue screen for Toon Disney’s Big Movie Show, a commerical for Simply Saline, a commercial for Olay. And, now, the display at the top of this article.
    Troubling, if enigmatic, too, is the increasing prevalence of animal paw illustrations to be seen decorating cars, on business signs, on bumper stickers.

    Julian, have you sought help? I mean beyond your foil hat?

    Julian, have you checked your meds lately?

    If you need a tinfoil hat, I can supply you with a “Paranoia Deluxe” model with a reinforced frame and a pair of soda-drinking attachments for the low price of $99.99. The Paranoia Deluxe is guaranteed to stop 97% of mind-reading and mind-influencing rays, from both governments and aliens. With the ParanoiaGoggles accessory ($49.99, but discounted to $37.75 when purchased with the Paranoia Deluxe), you are guaranteed to be protected from 100% of mental scanning rays, although you may not be able to see (since tinfoil goggles are opaque).
