I’m still here

Let’s see, today is Thanksgiving, a traditional American holiday of gluttony and greed. Still, there are some good things about this day, a chance to argue with your mother-in-law, or disapprove of your sisters’s choice in husband, or get drunk and make rude jokes. Have another slice of pie, this is America, land of the red, white and blue and home of the slave.

Quotations

Here are some notable quotations –

“Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth’s living things.”

“Our ancestors viewed the earth as rich and bountiful, which it is. Many people in the past also saw nature as inexhaustibly sustainable, which we know is the case only if we care for it. It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past that resulted from ignorance. Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations.”

More Bad News for Climate Change

Greenhouse gas emmissions are up 23% – Himalayan glaciers are melting at breakneck speed, with “Millions face[ing] glacier catastrophe”, and the “Global Disaster Will Follow If the Ice Cap on Greenland Melts“. The resulting world-wide coastal inundation will displace hundreds of millions of people (at least).

It just doesn’t get much more serious then this folks. Well, actually it does, if you’re one of the ten people paying attention. The Amazon drought is apparently wiping out entire cross sections of animals. I’ve already listed examples of the collapsing oceans and fisheries, soil depletion and toxic waste dumps. Humans must be the stupidest animals alive, bar none.

Blog Update

Blog update – The blog and the board have been moved along with everything else, something that was unavoidable and necessary. Everything should be back up and running again.

I haven’t felt much like writing lately, been rather busy with the move and other issues which invariably crop up. The world churns on, still headed towards complete insanity and self-destruction.

GOP Plans Another Terrorist Attack on Americans

The Bush Administration is either planning or preparing the stage for another 9/11 style attack on US soil to boost the President’s standing and to “restore his image as a leader of the American people.”

A leaked GOP memo includes this and other strategies.

The President’s popularity was at an all-time high following the 9/11 attacks, admits one aide. Americans band together at a time of crisis.

The Foul Smell of Empire

What the hell is it going to take to wake people up to what is going on in this country?

Latin America is enjoying a revolution of the people, who are sick and tired of the lies, corruption and deceptions that have plagued them, while here in America, we’re still debating whether or not torture is permissible or if it is even being performed by our sick government and its agents.

Army admits to White Phosphorus Weapons Used in Fallujah

From Field Artillery Magazine

“WP [i.e., white phosphorus rounds] proved to be an effective and versatile munition. We used it for screening missions at two breeches and, later in the fight, as a potent psychological weapon against the insurgents in trench lines and spider holes when we could not get effects on them with HE. We fired ‘shake and bake’ missions at the insurgents, using WP to flush them out and HE to take them out.”

Natural Living

What is natural living?

Is it living off the land? We all “live off the land”, although not directly. Not so that you’d notice where food, clothing or housing actually comes from. We are deliberately divorced from this knowledge and experience. But in reality, everything we need for our survival as individuals and as a species already comes from the land. Is this natural living? No, of course not.

Phosphorous Weapons Used by US Military

Tomorrow, worldwide news coverage is supposed to reveal the extent of the horror in Fallujah. You can view this movie here – Phosphorous Weapons in Fallujah

The US has used chemical weapons identified as phosphorous against the citizens of that city. These weapons of mass destruction are absolutely horrifying. Be warned, the video contains people with blackened, melted faces and intact clothing. Babies with missing limbs. Images of children and woman and elders burned to death with their clothes still untouched. Witnesses from the US Army speaking the truth at the cameras. Full footage of shooting at children waving white flags. Red crosses on houses. Black crosses inside mosques. And more.

Toxic Oceans

Over the years, I have read many stories regarding the dumping of medical waste, municipal waste, military equipment and more being dumped by the millions of tons into the oceans. But this stupidity takes the cake:

The Army now admits that it secretly dumped 64 million pounds of nerve and mustard agents into the sea, along with 400,000 chemical-filled bombs, land mines and rockets and more than 500 tons of radioactive waste – either tossed overboard or packed into the holds of scuttled vessels.

Yet another Climate Change Report

And yet another study just released on global climate change and the impact on our health, economy, environment and future:

“We found that impacts of climate change are likely to lead to ramifications that overlap in several areas including our health, our economy and the natural systems on which we depend,” said Dr. Paul Epstein, the study’s lead author and Associate Director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School. “A comparable event would be the aftermath of flooding, contamination and homelessness witnessed after Hurricane Katrina hit the US Gulf coast in August. Analysis of the potential ripple effects stemming from an unstable climate shows the need for more sustainable practices to safeguard and insure a healthy future.”

Faith Healer

George wants us to take a lot of things on faith. He doesn’t like it if we question his motives or his reasons. That’s because George is a faith healer. He knows what’s best for the country and the world. He gets his instructions from God.

Why God doesn’t inform the rest of us regarding His decisions, I don’t know, but George does this for Him. I don’t think George is very good at it, but they say that Moses had a hard time speaking too, so I guess we can forgive George for his lack of public speaking skills. But I still don’t know why George can’t perform any miracles. It seems that most things George tries to do turn out to be disasters. Well, perhaps that isn’t so bad, since God is in the disaster business Himself. I don’t know yet if God is grooming George for the God business. Maybe.

Who Should We Invade Next?

Dear Mr. President,

I am writing to you in desperation. Please invade my country. I know that they say you stand for freedom and democracy, but my country does not, and we desperately need your help. The situation for the people of my nation has become completely intolerable, a great and terrible evil has befallen my country.

The people of my country are very much oppressed and abused daily by our own government. We are governed by an malevolent dictator who was fraudulently elected in a rigged election. This actually happened twice if you can believe it.

Climate Change Irreversible

A new study proves that climate change is now irreversible. The total loss of the Arctic tundra would also include Siberian permafrost and the release of methane-hydrates into the atmosphere, creating an uncontrollable planet killing cycle.

Any investigation into the loss of the Artie and Siberian permafrost reveals that a devastating chain reaction will begin, creating unbelievable havoc worldwide.

Hyping the Bird Flu

There are 15 types of bird, or avian, flu. Humans catch the disease through close contact with live infected birds. Birds excrete the virus in their feces, which dry and become pulverized, and are then inhaled.

Wildly differing estimates claim that 2 – 300,000 million people could become infected – if the virus were to exchange genes with the human flue virus. Some sites are claiming a billion people. Experts agree that if it mutated into a strain that spread easily between humans, H5N1 had the potential to be worse than the 1918 Spanish flu.
