Dick Cheney is a Criminal and a Traitor.

So the main suspect (this time) in the anthrax attacks has died of an ‘apparent suicide’.

If this wasn’t an inside job, I don’t know nothin’.

I could go on and on, but what is there to say? I believe that Dick Cheney was directly involved in the planning and implementation of these traitorous attacks, with the purpose of terrorizing the American people into giving the government everything they wanted. I have a few excerpts below that may or my not support my case. I’ll let you decide.

On the night of the Sept. 11 attacks, the White House Medical Office dispensed Cipro to staff accompanying Vice President Dick Cheney as he was secreted off to the safety of Camp David, and told them it was “a precaution,” according to one person directly involved.

Between three and eight workers on loan from the U.S. Postal Service had access to that contaminated machine where a trace amount – anywhere from 20 to 500 spores – of anthrax was found… At least 8,000 spores must be inhaled into the lungs to get the most deadly form of anthrax. Substantially fewer spores can cause the highly treatable cutaneous form of anthrax if they enter a cut in the skin.

Washington Post

The attacks were not entirely unexpected. I had been told soon after Sept. 11 to secure Cipro, the antidote to anthrax. The tip had come in a roundabout way from a high government official, and I immediately acted on it. I was carrying Cipro way before most people had ever heard of it.

Richard Cohen

The FBI must not let the death of Bruce Ivins deter it from completing a full and thorough investigation of the attacks…The chance to prove Ivins’ guilt before a court of law has been lost, but the need for a thorough investigation and a full accounting to the American people remains…It appears increasingly likely that the only significant bioterrorism attack in history may have originated from right within the biodefense program of our own country…The implications for our understanding of the bioterrorism threat and for our entire biodefense strategy and enterprise are potentially profound.

No Shame.

Well, they aren’t even trying to hide it any more.  Via Glennzilla, here is the goodie bag that all atendees of the Democratic National Convention will recieve.

See anything funny about it? I notice that the frackin’ AT&T logo is the biggest damn thing on the bag.  Even the letters for AT&T are in a larger font than anything else.

As the Hep Cats say today, WTF ?

The whole system is bought and paid for by corporations that have no interests beyond making the very rich richer.  That is the reality we live in.  We are a top-heavy imperialistic power that is listing dangerously.  I seriously wouldn’t put it past our current leaders to come up with a way to suspend our democracy and try to install Bush as President for Life.

Start growing a garden.  Hug your neighbors.  Be nicer.  I think we’re in for a hell of a ride.

How many miles do you got on that thing?

Get out the tinfoil hats, kiddies, its time to talk about the Maya calendar.

The Maya Calendar is a calendar based on the movements of the heavens and the Earth’s rotational precession. The cycle of this precession is about 26,000 years, or one Platonic year. That cycle comes to a close on the Winter Solstice, 2012.

Actually, the Maya used 3 calendars, but I am only thinking about the Long Count. Somewhere around December 21, 2012, a Great Cycle (1,872,000 days) that began August 11, 3114 BCE will come to a close. The sun’s ecliptic path will exactly coincide with the equator of the Milky Way in a region known as the Sacred Tree. The Sacred Tree was believed to be the entrance to the underworld by the Maya. Or to put it another way:

Mythically, at sunrise on December 21, 2012, the Sun- our Father- rises to conjoin the center of the Sacred Tree, the World Tree, the Tree of Life.

To think of this in visual terms, imagine the belt of the Milky Way leading all the way from Polaris to exactly where the sun will rise on that equinox. (Powerful stuff when you live in a world without artificial lighting.)
There is a lot of information out there about this. A large group of people seem to interpret this as the end of time, Armageddon. However:

The astronomer Philip Plait has stated very clearly that the Mayan calendar does not end in 2012 at all, that it is like the odometer on your car, as each section of the odometer reaches 9 and then clicks over to 0, the next number to it starts a new cycle, so that when all the numbers again reach 0 all the way across the odometer – the last number will change from 1 to 2 and the new cycle starts all over again.

So what will happen? I’ll explore that later…

Two notes:

1. The proper use of the word Maya: Evidently, they are the Maya, it is the Maya calendar, and they speak Mayan. (See comment #2)
2. I apologize for the sporadic posting lately. I could make several excuses, but that is all that they would be.

It’s tinfoil hat time!

Filed under: Cosmic, Tinfoil Hat, Venus — t4toby @ 3:07 pm

Here is my first installment of things that I think about and probably shouldn’t share.

With Evan Almighty coming out, I thought it would be a good time to trot out one of my favorite exercises in Logical Leaps of Faith. Consider Noah’s Ark.

The great flood is a cross cultural story. Whether this is owing to one tale that spread out in ancient times to be included in many cultures, or that there actually was some great deluge in our past is debatable, so we won’t waste our time with that.

What I’d like to propose is that the story of Noah’s Ark is the story of humans moving through the solar system. I know, I’ve probaly lost all 3 of my readers by now, but I’ll soldier on.

Venus is a planet that compares to the Earth in several ways. It is similar in size (95% of Earth’s diameter, 80% of Earth’s mass) and in composition (similar chemical makeup, dense iron core). Both planets have few craters, indicating young surfaces.

But unlike earth (so far), Venus is completely covered in greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide makes up most of its atmosphere. See where this is going?

So imagine with me, if you will, that the Garden of Eden was on Venus. The whole planet is a tropical rain forest with robust plants capable of converting the increased sunlight (owing to Venus’s proximity to the sun) into oxygen. But there is trouble afoot. There are these little cancerous monkeys running around, ‘adapting’ the planet to themselves. Doing what humans do, which includes wanton polluting of the environment. So the humans pollute the planet so bad that the plants start to die of, which causes a snowball effect increasing the tempreature and CO2 levels exponentially. Eventually, it starts to rain and doesn’t stop (until it is too hot for liquids to exist), owing to the massive environmental challenges. And to top it off, the rain is terribly acidic, due to the sulphuric acid content of the clouds. So one clever group of humans decides to get while the gettin’s good.

They sail their little spaceship ‘for forty days and forty nights’ and land on some mountain in the Middle East. And the colonization of Earth begins.

So there are some obvious problems with this situation. The atmosphere of Venus is 90 times more dense than the Earth’s, or roughly equivalent to being one kilometer underwater. I have not found a way to rationalize this ‘fact’ away. Venus rotates very slowly. I mean really slowly. Like it takes 243 Earth days for Venus to spin around just once. In fact, a day on Venus is longer than a year on Venus (Go figure). This might figure into Moses being hundreds of ‘years’ old, but I’m not smart enough for that calculus.

Venus also doesn’t appear to have tectonic plates, but this may be due to the fact that the surface can reach 750 K (890 degrees F) during the day, or hot enough to melt lead. This would lead to the breakdown of anything that humans may have left behind, so that works in my favor.

So there you have it. A morsel to chew on. Do I believe it? No, but it is fun to think about.

And that concludes the first installment of Tinfoil Hat Time, otherwise known as Where Does He Come Up with This Shit?

Is this the fate of earth?
