Arrest Warrant This is True

THIS IS TRUE

today i got a letter saying i have a warrant out for my arrest for riding my bicycle LOL

the exact charge is allot funnier :-)

"Ride OR use a Bicycle without a permit"

next i'll have to register my TV to watch it
and my keyboard before i type
"Typing without a permit"

this ticket thing is a hoot
but they are serious i can now be locked up for this

I have other things going on right now as some of you know, so really do not need to be arrested and thrown in jail right now!
Maybe tomorrow would be a good day
I’ll have to check my schedule for the next available time slot, to be locked up for riding my bicycle

The Disastrous Effect of "Safety" Regs on Small Toy Makers (& what this means for Small Farms)

Congress is at it again, with a new draft food safety bill expected to go to legislative hearing June 3rd. While the details have yet to be worked out, it's looking very similar to HR 759 and HR 875, which suffered from the usual one-size fits all approach coupled with overly broad language.

Why is this a big deal? Find out:

Killing as a Playoff Sport and Recruiting Tool

I happened to be clicking around the channels (god help me) and came across a channel I didn't know I had: Testosterone TV, which they call “Spike”. I saw a promo for “IRA vs. Taliban” on a show called “Deadliest Warriors”. Today they had a “marathon” of this series.

of free men (woman)
to thoughs under correctional control
IE: prison, parole, probation etc.

AND how much your state spends to keep them there

Percent behind bars:
at year end 2007, 44 percent
of the correctional population was in prison or
jail
(national rank: 9);
the figure for 1982 was 23 percent
(national rank: 38)

3.4 Trillion! Gawd!

Do you know how much freaking money that is!? Three point four TRILLION dollars for the 2010 budget. The numbers boggle the mind. As stated in my earlier posts..OK my first shot at this blogging, was ranting about the problem with my non linear mind grasping the staggering amount of a trillion. But now it is Three point Four t r i l l i o n dollars.

Lights Out

The United States electricity grid is old, creaky, and getting more vulnerable by the day. Most people won't think twice about the dynamics involved that work in tandem to supply the "juice" to the outlet. Take this away, either by natural disaster or planned attack, and life would become very interesting indeed.

Blood Lust

War. The ultimate game. An addiction to death and the rush it brings. Even tho war is hell, many players cannot fathom doing anything else..ever. I know such a man. A man trying to leave the "theater" behind but cant because as he puts it, "it is what I am good at." But there is a more sinister underlying reason people such as these return for tour after tour and make the military their life's careers. The true warrior is of a different breed than the ones repulsed by death and destruction but live by the creed, "I like killing things." Blood lust. Pleasure derived in death.

Economics for Dummies

Think it is bad now? Wondering why the unemployment rate is high and seems to go higher each day, while the stock market reflects the opposite of reality? Ever consider why behemoths like Chrysler are filing bankruptcy and retail chains are increasingly closing their doors? Want to know why the banks can no way in hell sell the millions of foreclosed homes they are holding and instead just let them rot. Well children, let ole Mr Morphed shine some light on the confusing world of the global economy.

Doom and Gloom

There are over four hundred dead zones in the oceans where nothing lives, nothing. Nada, zip, zilch. Totally without oxygen, these areas are as dead as the surface of the moon, some predict as large as 45,000 square miles. The Gulf of Mexico dead zone is one of the larger in the world covering up to 8,000 square miles.

The One Day Revolution: 535 Citizen Arrests on July 4th

Now, to be clear, we are not calling for violence. We are calling for The People to voice themselves, for The Angry Mob that is sure to be present at each and every 4th of July speech by our "Representatives", to speak loud and clear about how they feel about our current Congress.

It might start with the crowd booing during the Critter's speech.  (roflmao video! Perhaps next time instead of a beach ball, someone will bring a basket of rotten tomatoes ; o ))

It might start when one member of the crowd yells out, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!!!" (video) And then another yells out, and another....

Or maybe it will be the impassioned speech of one individual that will galvanize the crowd (video) into the realization at just how badly they've been screwed, and the realization that we outnumber them!

Jerome Hauer and Jack Bauer

I have often thought how fortunate for the creator of the hit Fox action TV show "24" that they picked November of 200l to air the first show. Think of it! This was a TV show that mirrored the times so perfectly. Jack Bauer belonged to an illusive counter-terrorist unit that went out and did things that most elected officials wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. He got to torture Muslim terrorist, for example. He knew the enemies: Muslims, Chinese, and Russians. Jerome Hauer also worked for a kind of counter-terrorist unit, Kroll Associates. Now Jerome is working for Homeland Security and he is worried about a bioterrorist attack. Jack Bauer is worried about a bioterrorist attack too. Does anyone think that Jack Bauer might be the action hero side of Jerome Hauer.

NiN - We are letting you get away with it : Download Free Album

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails demonstrates what all socially conscious artists ought to do. He's released an album with meaninful lyrics, and is giving it away for free. Not only that, he encourages You to remix it and post it on your blog, podcast it, and basically give it away however you see fit, under a Creative Commons license.

I jut downloaded The Slip and was listening to the song Letting You. I didn't catch all the lyrics so I looked them up, and was impressed enough to want to post this...

The sky is painted black
The smoke pours out the stack
One hand upon your heart
One hand behind your back
You train us how to act
You keep the fear intact
The imminent attack
Everything is right on track

And we are letting you get away
We are letting you get away with it

The Blueshift Hypothesis (2009-04-13)

The Big Bang Theory rests on the assumption that since the more distant galaxies are "red-shifted" (or displaying more red colors than blue colors on the visible light spectrum), they must be moving away from us, and moving away at a faster pace than nearby galaxies... What if the opposite is true?

Are you a writer? Do you have a blog?

I would like to send a copy of my book The New Epistemology of Morality and Truth at my expense to a few writers who will consider publishing a book review online on their blog. This is about marketing.

The title might appear daunting to some, but don't be misled. This is a 212 page paperback. The book is philosophy, but written for a general readership. I am not an academic. This is not some dreary and foolish academic philosophy book.

This book tells a story, the story of the meaning of a new secular morality arising in the world that has solutions for the future. It is not a god-book. There are some humorous passages, as well as come insightful commentary on life made by an old guy well-past his physical prime.

A song to keep you going #1

First in a series of songs that inspire "us."

This one by Phil Collins hit me like a ton of bricks - I distinctly remember where I was and what grocery store I was in and what aisle where I really "heard" it playing over the grocery store speakers. I don't want to suggest Collins is some sort of fellow traveler of ours, but geez, these lyrics make you wonder a bit.

"they don't tell me nothing - so I find out what I can"

"there's a fire burning right outside my door."

"seems so long I've been waiting - still don't know what for."

"cause I've been a prisoner all my life..."

"mine's an ordinary life"

"they don't THINK THAT I LISTEN, BUT I KNOW WHO THEY ARE"

One Way to Save America

We have 40 million Americans facing retirement age. Why don't we give each one of them one million dollars with the stipulation that they buy an American car? 40 million cars sold in the USA. And a condo or house in the USA, not overseas? 40 million real estate buys.

This is just 40 million productive dollars (they'd pay “health insurance” and not need Medicare) instead of 160 million AIG “bonus” dollars which pay for... nothing. Oh, wait, private jets!

I wish this were my idea.... I am so down with it.

Bailing Out Retirees Would Save America

This is an idea I heard but I wish I would have thought of it. Someone please find the original source!

The USA has, let's say, 40 million people entering retirement age. So for a fraction of the bank bailout, let's say we give each one of those retirees a million dollars. You're 65? Here you go, thank you. Their financial security is ensured. Then, we just stipulate they buy one American car. Okay. 40 million new American cars sold! Then we ask them to buy a condo. Okay, say, a nice comfy quarter of a million ocean view somewhere. They will live, the autoworkers will be called back to work and real estate might be viable for people other than Candy Spelling. Oh, and they will be able to pay the outlandish health insurance premiums they cannot today.

Obama's Pick for Pentagon Weapons Buyer: A Resume

Obama's picks all have quite the connections,

the FDA head is a Monsanto Exec,
the Treas guy with Goldman Sachs ties,
the Defense guy - Raytheon Exec,
the CFTC Head - Goldmans Sachs Exec
now the weapons czar.. Ashton Carter

Carter, a Harvard University professor of international relations, majored in medieval history and physics at Yale. He first worked for the Pentagon from 1981-1982 on nuclear weapons systems and strategic defense issues under then-Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. He was Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy in the first Clinton administration.

The YouTube Creators Bailout

Google owns YouTube. Who owns Google? YouTube makes money, the people (like me!) who post videos for free DON'T.

Okay, there is a limit to when hoping for exposure to desperately find a job doing what I do becomes just another page of ad hits for YouTube and Sergey and his boys.

I made this video just to point out that I have had four million people see my comedy on YouTube and, of course, it means I am not benefiting other than my ego, the odd professional contact that goes nowhere, etc. YouTube, however, makes money with ads thanks to my work.

Holder's appeal for gun control for MEXICO'S sake

Have you noticed how often the proponents of more government control rarely cite their real intentions and instead make some emotional appeal about helping some victim class? Holder's claims that we should crack down on guns in the US because it helps MEXICO infuriates me.

This morning I hear David Shorr (who is pretty hard to listen to in the best of circumstances) repeating the Obama/Holder propaganda that the guns in Mexico come mostly from the US. The archive isn't up yet and I will add it when I can. But until then, consider the retort below (I have not verified it, fwiw)

It was written in response to a similar news story in the Wall Street Journal (see http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123518102536038463.html?mod=djem_we )

Gates, mosquitoes, and terrorism

How do Gates' actions not qualify as terrorism? Seems to me he was using terror to advance an agenda. Seems to be the working definition. And the first 5 letters of "mosque" is in the word "mosquito" - probably the connection would have been made half-jokingly by Malkin or Rush had the actor been a Middle Eastern man instead of the poster boy for corporate America - Gates.

Gates' statement prior to the release hangs him - 'Not only poor people should experience this.' Sic semper Bourgeoisie? Clearly his intent was to create terror - yet the MSM seems to laugh it off. What if that hypothetical Middle Eastern man had released powerdered sugar and claimed it was Anthrax spores only to say "just kidding"?

"Asymmetric warfare" and "terrorism"

A thought crossed my mind. Why is it "asymmetric warfare" when the poorly-funded and less-equipped side attacks the larger enemy, but not the other way around? Is it "asymmetric warfare" to fire missiles from drones onto targets in Pakistan or for Israel to drop WP on civilians EVEN IF they are deemed "combattants."

All war is terrorism, symmetrical or not.

These word games are used as red-herring to lead people from the question of whether the war is "just."

READER: READER: Were the Jews doing this kind of stuff to the German government in 1930?

Thursday, January 15, 2009
If so I can understand why the Germans were so angry at them.

One of the last Chancellors of the Weimar Republic, Dr Heinrich Bruning, said in a 1937 letter to Winston Churchill that;

"I did not and do not even today, for understandable reasons, wish to reveal that from October 1928 the two largest regular contributors to the Nazi Party were the general managers of two of the largest Berlin banks, both of Jewish faith, and one of them the leader of Zionism in Germany."

Upon Mr Hitler's accession to power 30 January 1933 something happened between then and 24 March 1933 when the `glorious` headline - Judea Declares War on Germany - appeared in London's Daily Express newspaper.

I suspect that the Zionist bankers promptly turned up on his doorstep and asked him to deliver on their having so lavishly funded his Party the previous 4 years and 3 months.

Kucinich offers Resolution for Cease-Fire in Gaza, unimpeded aid to Gaza

I know, I know, our entire Congress is blackmailed and/or bribed and the idea that they will do anything against Israel's demands or outside of AIPAC's direction is willfully ignorant wishful thinking but I thought I would post this anyway...

Please take action to get support for this important resolution to soon be formally introduced by Dennis Kucinich. It comes after last weeks disgusting House/Senate vote to unconditionally support Israeli aggression in Gaza that now has killed nearly a thousand people, mostly unarmed people, including hundreds of children. The death toll, staggering as it may be, really says little of the suffering of the 1.4 million people of Gaza.

It is in the best interest of the people of the United States, of Palestinians, of Israelis, of the world, for the United States to do all it can to press for a cease-fire, for aid to the people of Gaza.

This resolution, to be offered by Dennis Kucinich, is not yet numbered.

War News for Monday, January 12, 2009

Baghdad:
#1: The violence began when two vehicles parked about 50 yards (meters) apart exploded in quick succession just after 7 a.m. as a police patrol passed by a bakery in a mainly Shiite area. The road, which runs through a commercial district, is frequently used by police and army convoys in the eastern New Baghdad neighborhood, residents said. Police and hospital officials said four people, including a policeman who died at the hospital, were killed and nine others wounded. The U.S. military said the Iraqi police were hit when explosives planted on a truck detonated as they were responded to the initial car bomb. The U.S. military gave a lower casualty toll, saying one Iraqi policeman was killed and two civilians were wounded.

Ukraine-Russia gas spat: some background and context

Ukraine-Russia gas spat: some background and context
As we enter yet another episode of worried or sanctimonious articles about the gas conflict between Russia and Ukraine, it's worth remembering a few simple facts:

1) The conflict started in 1992, not in 2006;

2) Russia cannot win a gas war against Ukraine and knows it;

3) the real underlying stakes are not about Russia or Ukraine.

http://ingaza.wordpress.com/

The enormity of the deaths hit me. After 12 days of killing and psychological warfare, I’d become…less shocked at the sight of pieces of bodies, a little numb…like a doctor might, or a person subjected to this time and again. I was and am horrified at the on-going slaughter, at the images of children’s bodies being pulled from the rubble astonished it could continue…but adapted to the fact that there would be bodies, maimed, lives ruined. Standing among sandy makeshift graves, watching men digging with their hands, others carrying corpses on any plank long enough –corrugated tin, scraps of wood, stretchers –to be hastily buried –the drones still fly overhead and tank shelling can be heard 100s of metres beyond, it all become too much again. I wept for all the dead and the wounded psyches of a people who know their blood flows freely and will continue to do so.

The BBC are reporting that, "at least 40 people have been killed in an Israeli air strike on the United Nations-run al-Fakhura girls school in the Gaza Strip". BBC video (timed 4.35 GMT) Israeli captain on school attack - Captain Elie Isaacson of the Israeli Defence Force said that they had had "major operational successes" in Gaza. He told the BBC's Ben Brown that the Israeli army wants to "get this thing finished as soon as possible" .. but wouldn't comment on the school massacre as they didn't have "accurate information".

Gaza - Warsaw Redux and a good time to remind Obama of his silence on the genocide of the Palestinians

http://postmanpatel.blogspot.com/2009/01/gaza-warsaw-redux-and-good-ti...

from April 19th to May 16th , 1943 a Nazi campaign, led by SS General Jürgen Stroop with over 2000 soldiers, mostly Waffen SS, SS Ordnungspolizei, and SS Sicherheitsdienst troops began a short brutal campaign to end the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

The Nazis had walled off and sealed the ghetto in November 1940 and refused to allow in enough food to support life.

IRAQI SHOE REBELLION!

Now that the spark has hit the fuel by that brave Iraqi reporter, wouldn't it be nice if ALL Iraqis just started throwing shoes at the occupation forces everywhere in their country?

They can call it the Shoe-ntifada!

Reason enough for blind-rage rampages to become very common.

The events of the past weeks beginning with the massive bailouts of Wall Street banks by the Treasury Department are beginning to wear a raw hole in the psyche of the American public.

And it is not now going too far to say the hubris of the government is reason enough to justify a rash of violent, blind-rage, outbreaks, attacks upon all bodies of authority in this country.

The Problem with Pragmatism

President-Elect Obama's national security team is being called, "pragmatic".

As expected Hillary Clinton was named the next Secretary of State.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates will be kept on in his current post.

Susan Rice, an apparently quite competent Obama staffer, was named as nominated to be United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Marine General James Jones will be nominated as Barack Obama's National Security Adviser.

Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will be nominated as the new Homeland Security Director.

Is Congress Too Big to Fail?

It's increasingly up in the air whether or not Congress itself is too big to fail.

In this age of knee-slapping Treasury Department swindles like Honest Hank Paulson's bandwagon of fiscal hilarity, one has to take a look around this vast coterie of a country and determine just who isn't too big too fail?

Oh, it's clear someone does have to fail. The average American has been failing in increasing numbers for a long enough period of time no one seems to remember a time when it wasn't the case that there's no success like failure.

From Within Our Own Government Powerful Forces Confront Obama.

I make no pretense of my outspokenness. I make no contentions, as I neither voted for Barack Obama or John McCain. I protested the process with a clear-conscience vote for Mark Twain, exactly as I said I would.

I have only slowly grown to value the opportunities the Obama Presidency present. He will have a chance to grab at the brass ring.

I make no bones about the prissy yes-men Obama has thus far recruited for his cabinet. Not one of them is legitimate. Not one of them, other than Paul Volcker, impresses me.

Commodities to fall, Oil into the teens, and Gold to $250

In the current climate it is easy to look around and find dire predictions. That's why you are reading this post. It is all part of depression era market psychology. Nothing surprises us any more.

So, I am serious about these predictions?

You bet I am. The worldwide financial systems are wrecked to the up side.

We are now peering over the edge of the abyss.

And just because the fed has sloshed around more than few trillion dollars at the bottom of a their leaky bucket, it is all going into efforts that do nothing to increase demand.

No one has any money.

Bullying

I've always been a bully, since as long as I can remember.

Bullying gets a lot of bad press in our world of late.

It wasn't always so, but these humanitarian schmucks have the floor and the gavel with so much wrong in the world, and so many complaining about it all the time.

But no one knows what to do about anything anymore.

And the number of people screaming to be bullied is skyrocketing.

It's too bad. Because a lot of what is wrong in the world could be very quickly cured with just a little well-placed bullying.

Ruthlessly dedicated to the preservation of whatever.

IN this age where terrorism, false flags, the end of the financial system, and trillions of dollars all can come up within a single article without shocking a single reader, one has to wonder, by what measure might we see life jump back out of the fast lane before, or after, the bloody, fatal crash everyone seems to be predicting, coming from one source or another, as it most assuredly is?

WRH Thought for the day

I just noted today's WRH Thought For The Day.

In order for an act to be a crime, libertarians say, someone must be harmed [and?] there must be a victim. Anything that's peaceful, voluntary, and honest should be tolerated regardless of whether we agree with it. Part of the price of our own freedom is allowing others to be free. - Scott Banister, www.libertarian.org

I do not know Scott Banister the woeful grammarian.

But this little aphorist whirligig is typical Libertarian tripe that fails at even the most rudimentary of logical levels.

FREE Garikoitz Aspiazu !

Garikoitz Aspiazu, aka "Txeroki", is a fighter in the movement for an independent Basque nation.

Out of expediency Garikoitz Aspiazu is being treated as a civil prisoner when he is clearly a political prisoner.

The slimeball Sarkozy is bragging he caught him.

Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero, doesn't care who caught Garikoitz Aspiazu. He just wants to cut his balls off and stuff them in his mouth.

Face it. You've got to either put up, or shut up in this world.

Bald Boomers, and The Hubris of the American Oligarch in the Age of Obama

This site has a plethora of Libertarian posters that serve up libations to the reading public. Where are they?

They have failed to point out that two bald Boomers have seized control of everyone’s economic prospects.

The Age of the American Entrepreneur has been eclipsed by The Age of the Bailouts.

What does this mean for the makeup of American society and the future of everyone’s children who will inherit it?

A look at Hell on earth for the uninitiated.

First thing this morning I am confronted with a suffocating story about despair.

Most people suffer passing bouts with depression.

But when we strive to understand depression, and especially its non-clinical causes, its causes rooted in the modern reality we all suffer, we are finally addressing the needs of the world, if by "needs" we are talking about a universal wish to make the world a better place.

Making the world a better place, is no easy task. But, it is clearly the only moral task.

Monetary Dikes Created to Dam Fiscal Floods

Cannibalism could be a viable solution

As I sat here this morning reading a gut-wrenching BBC story entitled Growing slums 'face water crisis' it dawned on me, canniblism may become necessary to adequately address the humanitarian needs that will certainly arise in this snow-balling economic downturn.

Even if it has never been a good idea to eat street vender meat products, no, we're still probably not going to see widespread cannibalism here in the U.S.

Re-Legitimizing America?

Many millions of Americans, and literally billions of human beings outside the United States, are right now hoping the election of Barack Obama, the first American of significant color to be elected to be President of the United States, will somehow re-legitimize the promise of the ethic of the America experience.

Black Americans of every shade are waking up this morning pinching themselves, wondering what it all will mean.

Many youthful Americans of every color too are stirring from their slumber, and saying to themselves, Yes! Yes! Yes!

Our Wheel of Fortune America.

Watching a Barack Obama television ad just now, an ad aired just before Wheel of Fortune, I was quite suddenly inspired by the half-black, Harvard graduate from Illinois.

No, I'm not inspired by any controversy incurred by the campaign of this polite, half-black, candidate. Barack Obama brought an incidental controversy to this election season, a reverse sort of race-baiting that seems to be enticing plenty of supporters to a candidacy that is otherwise ill-defined.

Anger about banking network security.

I'm interested in network security for online banking sites. It's a huge problem that seems to be being summarily ignored, and shirked for the responsibility it represents.

And there is a huge, gaping hole in the response for what could be done.

Here's the problem: we're all under attack 24/7. Anyone who has an online banking account is at risk.

Banks have done some things, and sometimes they change for improvement.

Will no savings doom Americans?

According to my limited understanding of economics, banks are subject to the law of supply and demand. So, if they want to get more money into their reserves, an increase in interest rates is required so more people will bank their money in exchange for a higher rate of return. Banks can lend more (though at a higher rate) because they have more money in reserves to lend.

However, what I'm seeing is that the banks want to please all the people all the time. This flies in the face of conventional wisdom. There are some fundamental laws of economics being violated here.

Muslim Children Gassed at Dayton Mosque

According to fire dispatch communications, a child reported seeing two men with a white can spraying something into a window. That child was brought to the supervising firefighter at the scene.

The 300 or so inside were celebrating the last 10 days of Ramadan with dinner and a prayer session, but the prayer session was interrupted so those suffering from tearing, coughing and shortness of breath could receive treatment.

Treasury Pulled $700 billion price tag out of Thin Air

Treasury Pulled the Number Out of Thin Air

You know the $700 billion price tag of the proposed bailout? Treasury pulled that number out of thin air.

As Forbes writes:

In fact, some of the most basic details, including the $700 billion figure Treasury would use to buy up bad debt, are fuzzy.

"It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Forbes.com Tuesday. "We just wanted to choose a really large number."

It's very well made and I like how they show how the average person no matter how technical savvy can find this information. You can even follow along using google to verify the data. This documentary makes you wonder what is Monsanto's agenda?

Palin's Deadly Wolf Program

http://www.salon.com/env/feature/2008/09/08/sarah_palin_wolves/index.html

I feel strongly that a person's character can be judged by the way he or she treats animals. Sarah Palin is on record for actively promoting the aerial gunning of Alaska's wild wolves and bears. The wolves and bears are chased by plane to exhaustion and then blasted to death by cowards with shotguns. When Palin learned that not enough wolves were killed this way she tried to offer a bounty for every severed foreleg brought in.
