Worldclass Forked-Tongue Doubletalk

Dig this:
PORTSMOUTH — Presidential hopeful Delaware Sen. Joe Biden stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without first gaining congressional approval.
Gad, even one of today's fifth-graders knows and understands that it will be Israel to first strike Iran. Then, the U.S. will jump in to "defend" it's "ally", with massive congressional approval after the powerful and generous(to congressional members) Israeli lobby calls in its markers.

And - of course - Biden, one of the rock-solid insiders, already knows this.

Nuts... a first-grader can figure that one out. So Biden is just looking for a few votes from the vast pool of the ignorant and unaware amongst us, which unfortunately in America, is a huge target-rich environment.

The stench of the BS emanating from Washington just grows and grows.

Hate Crime Of The Day

How to jump over the rail in one easy leap:
A Glendale elementary school principal has admitted to telling a 9-year old boy that it is OK to have racist feelings as long as you keep them to yourself.

“As we said to (the boy) when he was in here, in your heart you may have that feeling, and that is OK if that is your personal belief,” Abraham Lincoln Traditional School Principal Virginia Voinovich said in a tape-recorded parent-teacher conference.

The boy was suspended for three days this month for allegedly committing a “hate crime” by using the expression “brown people.”
Good grief... brown people, black people, red people, yellow people, and Lord help us all...white people!

Saying any of those is now a hate crime? Brown people. Wowzers. When I was a kid in Santa Fe, I never heard something like "brown people". What I did hear a lot of was stuff like beaner, wetback, spic, greaser, even Chicano. But in those days, Chicano was an insult, as in "friggin' chicano"...

That Glendale elementary school principal should have grown up in Santa Fe. She would have grown up knowing that "brown people" was as close to a compliment as one could get.

But what can you expect? Just another college educated female stomping her way through the tulips.

District Of Columbia

The first statistics to be collected on HIV in the District of Columbia reveal "a modern epidemic" remarkable for its size, complexity and reach into all parts of the city.
The numbers most starkly illustrate HIV's impact on the African American community. More than 80 percent of the 3,269 HIV cases identified between 2001 and 2006 were among black men, women and adolescents. Among women who tested positive, a rising percentage of local cases, nine of 10 were African American.
The 120-page report shows how a condition once considered a gay disease has moved into the general population.
It blows the stereotype out of the water," said Shannon Hader, who became head of the District's HIV/AIDS Administration in October. Increases by sex, age and ward over the past six years underscore her blunt conclusion that "HIV is everybody's disease here.
Not exactly. A conclusion more "blindered" or politically correct than "blunt".

More than 80% of the cases were "among black men", and among the women, "nine out of ten were African American".

While it's obvious that HIV/AIDS is a major health problem everywhere, in the district of Columbia - according to the above numbers - it seems to be epidemic only in the black population.

That supports a report I recently read that claimed that one had an 800% better chance of getting HIV/AIDS when having sex with a black than any other ethnic group.

Now that's blunt, but apparently true.

Boy, Are We Tough!

Mankind 'shortening the universe's life'
By Roger Highfield, Science Editor, UK Telegraph:
Forget about the threat that mankind poses to the Earth: our activities may be shortening the life of the universe too.

The startling claim is made by a pair of American cosmologists investigating the consequences for the cosmos of quantum theory, the most successful theory we have. Over the past few years, cosmologists have taken this powerful theory of what happens at the level of subatomic particles and tried to extend it to understand the universe, since it began in the subatomic realm during the Big Bang.

Cosmologists claim by observing dark energy the universe has been nudged closer to its death

But there is an odd feature of the theory that philosophers and scientists still argue about. In a nutshell, the theory suggests that we change things simply by looking at them and theorists have puzzled over the implications for years.
Well now. Us incredibly important humans are destroying the universe by looking at it.

Lets see now... in a universe so vast that we still have no idea of it's size or where it came from, the entire human race - which has only been around for the teeniest speck of time - and wouldn't make up the smallest speck of a zit on the Universe's' butt, is destroying it by looking at it.

Consider the source: Two American cosmologists - no doubt educated in some American College or University - which would go a long way to explain things.

How does stuff like that get press time?

It's that college degree. It declares even idiots to be intelligent and wise, a serious - if not fatal - flaw in our national mindset.

Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving day, and the family will be meeting for a grand get together. Not all of us unfortunately, but enough to make the day more special.

I certainly have plenty to be thankful for. I have everything I need and quite a few things I wanted but really didn't need. One quick look at the condition of the many billions of people on this planet who struggle every day just to survive makes me grateful for the things I have and enjoy in this life. Bill Gates may have his billions, but I'd bet his money he doesn't sleep any better than I.

At any rate, enjoy the day.

Red Planet Earth


That's the headline for a fear-mongering "end of the world" article over at in the INDEPENDENT.

Pollution in the seas is now speeding global warming, says a devastating new climate report. 'IoS' Environment Editor Geoffrey Lean reports from Valencia...blah, blah, blah.

I believe that America has done a fabulous job cleaning up our act to reduce pollution and emissions. We have clean water and clean skies now in places that used to be cesspools. Today's generation has no idea whatever what it was like to live in Pittsburgh - as a typical example - in the 1940's and 50's.

It's the Chinese and other new rising industrial powers that are not doing their bit, and there's plenty of evidence for that. But these sky-is-falling nutcases still want to blame us for all the problems.
Getting agreement on a new treaty to tackle climate change hangs on resolving an "after you, Claude" impasse between the United States and China, the two biggest emitters of carbon dioxide, the main cause of global warming.

China insists – with other key developing countries like India and South Africa – that the United States must move first to clean up. It points out that, because of the disparity in populations, every American is responsible for emitting much more of the gas than each Chinese. But the US refuses to join any new treaty unless China also accepts restrictions.
What a batch of double-talk. We have already done incredible things to clean up the atmosphere and oceans. Satellite photos show CHINA as the number one source of pollution by a HUGE margin, a rather inconvenient truth for the rabble-rousers, so they don't mention it.

Yes, the world is in a warming phase, one that it has gone through many times before - without the benefit of human-induced carbon dioxide - but keep in mind we are near the end of an unusually warm period that has allowed humanity to grow and prosper, a period that may end suddenly.

So instead of a flaming globe or fire, we may just end up an iceball. It has happened before. It all points to the fact that we do need to figure out the world's historical and repeatable weather patterns and prepare to adjust our civilization to those realities, without the yadda-yadda fear mongering rabble rousing noise from the Gore crowd.

Silly Question

WND asks if the below picture is of an angel appearing at a gas station:

No, it's a picture of a cloud of bluish gas. It I were the station owner, I'd be checking for some serious leaks around the place.

Somebody go tell Joe Farah what angels are supposed to look like... semi-human, no sex organs, big feathery wings, white dress-like garments, and they glow in the dark. Not blue, but white.

Color security cameras are known to act up in this manner, a frame from which the above picture is taken. So maybe the whole thing was only on tape, which would reduce the whole incident to BS and nonsense.


The number of stars in the Universe?

The number of grains of sand on all the beaches of earth?

The number of Mexicans wanting to sneak into the United States?


That's the latest estimate of what the Bush wars are costing us to date. One point six trillion dollars. This estimate includes things that Bush and his cronies refuse to discuss or admit to, things like:

-1)The interest on the money being borrowed to conduct these wars.

-2)The cost of medical assistance and treatment to veterans.

-3)The cost to replace all the destroyed equipment.

The fact is... if Bush couldn't borrow money from places like communist China, he couldn't be the war monger he is... we would be at peace with every Muslim nation on earth, except for Afghanistan, a war we can afford and should have already won, but sadly that that damned puppet Bush re-directed most of our war effort to Iraq in order to secure an estimated 30 trillion dollar oil supply for the benefit of the international corporations. Spread democracy my ass... it's all for the oil.

Seems to me it's obvious. If we don't have the money on hand to fight a war - particularly an unnecessary war with a nation that was absolutely no threat to the security of the United States - we shouldn't be fighting it, no matter who thinks we should be, especially the Israelis, who have lost nothing in this war, but have promoted it from day one.

Not Meant To Happen

An early morning attack by four gunmen who stormed and reached the emergency-response control room of a secured nuclear facility in South Africa has left one of the plant's operational officers hospitalized.

The attack at the Pelindaba nuclear facility took place early Thursday morning, reported the Pretoria News.

Anton Gerber, an emergency services operational officer working for the Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa, was in the control room with his fiancée Ria Meiring, who is also the control room supervisor, when he heard a loud bang and saw the men coming into the facility's eastern block.

Gerber pushed Meiring beneath a desk for safety and attempted to stop the intruders from entering the electronically sealed control room. Two forced their way through the door and ran straight for the control panel.
Investigators at the Pelindaba plant believe the attackers gained access to the building by using a ladder belonging to the facility's fire department to scale a wall, then forced open a window by pulling out several louvers.
The facility is meant to be safe. There are security guards, electric fences and security control points. These things are not meant to happen," Gerber said.
There is a host of smells coming from this report, but where to start?

Electronically secured control room door, but two guys "forced" their way in. No no no. Those doors are heavy steel and reinforced three ways from Sunday, so the door had to have been open to begin with, no doubt a major violation of security procedures.

One must wonder if Gerber even belonged in the control room to begin with. He must have been "visiting" his Fiancee(the control room supervisor) and had left the door open. Talk about bad timing.

The invaders reportedly used a ladder belonging to the facility's fire department to scale a security wall and thus gained entry..
A police spokesman told Pretoria News there had been no arrests in the attack. Reports make no mention of terrorism as a possible motive.

"A case of armed robbery and attempted murder are being investigated," the spokesman said.
"Not meant to happen." But if you leave things like ladders laying around and doors open, the best laid plans are worthless.

Alabama health officials have identified 212 workers who have tested positive for tuberculosis at a single poultry plant owned by one of the largest processors in the U.S.
In two batteries of skin tests last month, given to 765 fresh processing employees at the Decatur, Ala., plant owned by Wayne Farms LLC by the State Department of Public Health's Tuberculosis Control Division, 28 percent were found to be infected, including one with active tuberculosis disease, which is contagious. Doctors have yet to evaluate X-rays for 165 current workers who tested positive to determine if any more are contagious.
The testing was prompted by an earlier active TB case – a former Wayne Farms worker.

Both employees with active TB are Hispanics born in countries where the disease is prevalent, heath officials said. Scott Jones, interim director of the Tuberculosis Control Division told the Decatur Daily he was not surprised at the large number of employees who tested positive.
"The majority of the folks that we're dealing with in this situation are foreign born," Jones said. "I would expect about 30 percent of them to test positive."
I've said it before... these illegals swarming across our border... the ignorant, the sick, the uneducated and the unwanted poor of Mexico sneaking into our nation are bringing back diseases we had eliminated decades ago.

It's another one of those hidden costs we are paying for Bush's open borders experiment.
Stan Hayman, sales and marketing director for Wayne Farms, told Huntsville's WHNT-TV News the company was looking for ways to pre-test employees before they're hired but said the law imposed limits on what could be done. Said Stan:
The laws today don't truly allow for pre-employment screening. You know HIV and all of these over the years have built cases where personal information is very guarded. So we struggle a little bit with the laws today to say can we truly implement a pre-screening, pre-employment process
Imagine that. Those individuals with HIV/AIDS have managed to get laws passed that forbid the testing of potential employess for deadly diseases, even in our food porcessing plants.

At what point do we finally decide we've had enough?

Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf has tossed out democracy in an apparently successful grab for one-man rule. In the process, he tossed out the Pakistani Supreme Count members that disagreed with him, and then canceled the next round of elections.

Now, police and soldiers, emboldened by this state of emergency powers, swept up hundreds of activists and opposition members on Sunday, dragging away protesters and turning government buildings into barbed-wire compounds, all of this resulting in the creation Earth's newest police state.

The cable news bobble heads are trying to explain all this away by saying the General needed to to this to combat growing extremism and terrorism.

My, my. Makes me think of Bush's latest, National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD 51, which seeks to establish continuity of government in the case of a major disaster. The proposed agenda of this Presidential Directive/NSPD51 includes the postponement of elections, a move which can be triggered due to any perceived increase in extremism and/or terrorism.

Now... try to convince me that the Bush/Chaney/neocon cartel running our government is not going to try the same thing. And I'll be damned if the media won't go right along.

The Ultimate Source

(CBS) 60 Minutes has identified the man whose fabricated story of Iraqi biological weapons drove the U.S. argument for invading Iraq. It has also obtained video of "Curve Ball," as he was known in intelligence circles, and discovered he was not only a liar, but also a thief and a poor student instead of the chemical engineering whiz he claimed to be.

60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon's two-year investigation will be broadcast this Sunday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Curve Ball is an Iraqi defector named Rafid Ahmed Alwan, who arrived at a German refugee center in 1999. To bolster his asylum case and increase his importance, he told officials he was a star chemical engineer who had been in charge of a facility at Djerf al Nadaf that was making mobile biological weapons.
So there you are. The source that President Bush and his cronies swore up and down to be credible and totally reliable about all those WMD's in Iraq.

Nothing more than a college student who was getting poor grades in chemistry, who lied to improve his case for asylum in Germany.

His lies have cost us Americans over 3,000 lives and two trillion dollars... with no end in sight.

Keep in mind it's the same batch of idiots that believed Rafid who are now telling us that Iran is building the bomb.
