A yawning blank?

A3 version to put on yer new painted wall?
A3 version to put on yer new painted wall?

Nothing fixed for the 11th? Is this the Cowley Club I once knew? I'll put a positive interpretation on that blank Tuesday 11th September by guessing you'll all be out on 'strike' in solidarity with those still trying to get the discrepancies of 9/11 into the mainstream consciousness.

Nothing will get better until that atrocity, admitted in October 2000 by one Nicholas Rockefeller to be 'a gigantic hoax', is finally exposed for what it really is. Carte Blanche for the NWO psychopaths profitable wars.
