At both ends of the Greenway Bridge at Skinner’s Butte Park in Eugene, a message is spray painted on the ground: You Google It! NWO Order Plan.
I wrote in a previous post that not far from the bridge, on the outside of a wooden fence surrounding a house, there was a banner with a similar message, but it’s long gone.
It’s the best I could do, the sticker was pretty high up on the pole. The verbiage on the sticker talks about electronic harassment from microwaves, mind control, ELF waves, etc. and how this mind control and electronic harassment is all around us.
Last Sunday I was walking past the Greenway Bridge again. About a mile, maybe less, from the Greenway Bridge was this sign stuck to a support under the bridge further down (lots of bridges in the area! They cross the Willamette River.):
Underneath the second bridge.
I’ve been noticing these signs in the area for over a year. A couple of nights ago, the local news had a short segment on these signs. Some neighbors in the area are “upset” because the signs are offensive. Apparently someone, and I suspect someone else not the original sign maker, sprayed swastikas on some of these signs. I haven’t come across any with swastikas. The news said the signs were publicity for “a movie.” I’m not so sure about that, it seems like a strange explanation, especially when no title was given or reason why they came to that conclusion. Hand lettered signs on cheap paper stuck to bridge supports, telephone and light poles; hand painted banners on flimsy paper stuck to wooden fences — doesn’t seem like much of publicity campaign.
I couldn’t find anything on-line about this from any of the local news outlets. I’m not sure which local news it was either, since they’re all the same and I switch back and forth. The short segment ended with the warning that it is illegal to affix any kind of flyer or poster, etc. to city property such as telephone and light poles.
This item is just full of Fortean type ironies. Club Namaste might open soon in Springfield, Oregon. The club is not an Eastern religious group, New Age bookstore or neo-pagan temple; it’s a sex club for consenting adults over 21. (Namaste is a Sanskirt word that can be translated, according to Eugene’s Register Guard, as “The divine in me salutes the divine in you.” There is no strict, literal translation and there are several interpretations of the word but the basic intent of the word is one of mutual respect and oneness.) The proposed Club Namaste offers a place for swinging couples and singles, with rooms like “The Doctor’s Office,” (ewww!) and the “Jungle Room,” (now we’re talking…) The building has been, in the past,a Montessori school as well as a day care center, and now it’s being transformed into a high class sex club.
The biggest hurdle with the club opening in Springfield isn’t a moral one, in fact, the city’s urban planning supervisor Jim Donovan is succinct when remarking on the project:
I have no comment or opinion on the nature of their club,” he said. “It’s a fraternal organization like any other.
The building’s owner, Darrold Stutz, who isn’t involved in Club Namaste in any way (other than leasing it to the club’s owner) stated:
“If it’s a legal operation, then I have no problem,” he said. “I don’t have any right to tell anyone else what they can or can’t do with their body or their beliefs.
The biggest hassle seems to be the building and bringing it up to code. . Issues like parking, accessibility, etc. have to be dealt with before the club can open. The building ia forty years old, and so in general terms there’s a lot that needs to be done. There are also some issues between the building’s owner and club owner involving fees and licenses, etc.
The club has an on-line presence: Club Namaste, where rules, FAQs and other info can be found. I had to laugh at rule number 6:
6.Proper Attire is required to enter the club and is strictly enforced. Management has the final word on what is and what is not acceptable and reserves the right to refuse your entry unless you’re dressed accordingly.
For Men: please dress to impress. No sneakers, sandals, ball caps, undershirts, shorts. Think business casual…
(italics mine) (I don’t know what it is about Oregonians and ball caps, but you can’t go anywhere, and I mean anywhere, without seeing a man in a baseball cap. Old, young, doesn’t matter.)
According to the article in the Register Guard newspaper, there are other clubs like the proposed Club Namaste in Oregon:
A half-dozen such clubs appear to exist in the state — including one in Albany, one in Salem, and several in Portland.
There’s one in Albany???!!
Took these images during my walk by the river in Skinner’s Butte park today. This message was at the end of the bridge on the Valley River side:
On my way back, I noticed the same message at the other end. A couple of weeks ago, I noted a large hand painted sign on a fence in the park, not far from the bridge, warning us of the NWO, mind control, and other related subjects, with the urgent note to Goggle these topics. I also noticed, stuck pretty high up on a light pole, a sticker warning us of the dangers of mind control and electronic harassment. I’ll go back in the next day or two and see if I can find those images; if I do, I’ll post them here.
The sky today was interesting. Here’s a sort of lenticular type cloud; which we don’t see around here very often. In fact, I saw my first one last spring, and my husband told me he saw one the other day.
It doesn’t show up as well in the image; it was more distinct with the naked eye.
