EYE SPY: It is a little after midnight 04/05/11 in Lubbock as I write this, there is a mystery aircraft circling over my head. The surveillance is on again. Lubbock lost Reese Air Force base and now Cannon AFB is being expanded? This article does not mention what new airplanes will be stationed at Cannon or what they will be used for. Cannon Air Force Base expanding I have observed drones over Lubbock flying at night from Cannon following drugs from Mexico. So when one in Lubbock sees surveillance over the Hub, one can thank Cannon AFB for the intrusion. I do not think the Constitution of the United States allows the military to get involved in civilian affairs. This drug prohibition is illegal to start with and the United States Air Force violating the Constitution is not acceptable. This is a civilian matter with the government trying to impose its will on the people, which we resist. Right or wrong this shall not pass.

Thousands are missing in Mexico says CNDH
Relatives of the disappeared hold vigils to draw attention to their plight. A Mexican human rights organisation says thousands of people have disappeared in Mexico since 2006. Mexico’s human rights commission, CNDH, said 5,397 people had been reported missing since President Felipe Calderon declared war on the drug cartels. A United Nations study has suggested the security forces may have played a part in the disappearance of some of those missing. Mr Calderon has deployed 50,000 troops as part of his war on the cartels. Continue reading the main story

Coca-Cola FEMSA Acquires Grupo Industrias Lacteas In Panama
If you want to try to make your own Coke, here is the two-part recipe, as unearthed by NPR: Part 1: fluid extract of coca, citric acid, caffeine, sugar, water, lime juice, vanilla and caramel
Part 2 (code named 7X): alcohol, orange oil, lemon oil, nutmeg oil, coriander, neroli and cinnamon
Glass said he found the recipe, not through nefarious means, but rather in plain sight. It was in a column in the February 18, 1979 edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Coke is headquartered in Atlanta. Glass says that on page 2B was a photograph of a page from an old book of handwritten pharmacists’ recipes–and the one depicted was Coca-Cola. Invented in the 1880s by pharmacist John Pemberton, Coca-Cola was originally sold only at drug store soda fountains. ABC News reports that while Glass had a batch made up by the Jones Soda Co. in Seattle, it’s difficult to replicate the recipe because it’s almost impossible to get one critical ingredient: fluid extract of coca, which is coca leaves that have been stripped of cocaine. Coke has an agreement with the Drug Enforcement Administration that allows the company to import the leaves.
