Where oh where will Bonzo get his news? How can he possibly be knowledgeable about World Affairs?

The flow of real hard news is down to a trickle in many areas. Yesterday we learned the Troops will be denied access to previously available websites, like You Tube and Myspace along with others. Combine that with the Iraqi(US puppet) government banning reporters from bomb blast scenes because they interfere with evidence collection and other LAME reasons.

Back to the American Frypan, all the frogs seem to be dealing with the latest revelations with typical froggy cluelessness, going about their daily lives. I would be willing to bet that 75% of American people do not know the name of the Iraqi Prime Minister if the question was posed.

The Media has been bought and paid for with Mega-Corporate dollars and will not risk a loss of profits by putting bad news on TeeVee. Unless it is some poor sot losing his talent shot on 'American Idol', bad news there, Oh My! Poor Paris Hilton, goofy Tom Cruise! Oh My!

Now that is real news!

There used to be a commercial jingle for a hair remedy to remove gray hair, "I'm gonna wash that grey right outta my hair"

Todays version goes; "I'm gonna wash that war right outta my head"

Media control of the news=FASCISM

Look it up if you don't believe me, welcome meanwhile to the 'New World Order'

I just can't get all exercised at the Pentagon cutting off soldiers' access to YouTube and MySpace, etc. on the U.S. military's computer network. I'm no a techie, but don't those sites take up a helluva lot of bandwidth? Besides, a lot of "employers" bar employees from using the "company" computers for personal use.

If soldiers have to rely on private accounts to access YouTube and MySpace, so what? Also, the ban does not afffect other sites, such as Yahoo, and does not prevent soldiers from sending messages and photos via e-mail.

Additionally, on a personal note, I wouldn't touch MySpace with a ten-foot pole! Rupert Murdoch owns it. Gag! I wouldn't help put one DIME in his pocket.

They found Falwell unconcious in his office. I think he's in critical condition.

Fallwell has attained room temperature,

Sorry, but this is too much of a coinky-dink to not post. While the wacko was talking about "turned all into dust" yesterday, at the same time this was posted on the physics forum.
Collapse Time Calculations for WTC 1, Kenneth Kuttler, Professor of Mathematics

Here is an example (the article above) of what passes for "scholarship" on that site.

in "Estimates for time to collapse of WTC1" it states...

"In [10]it states: Virtually all the concrete (an estimated 100,000
tons in each tower) on every floor was pulverized into a very fine dust, a phenomenon that requires enormous energy and could not be caused by gravity alone; workers can't even find concrete.""

As if this was a scientifically proven fact. It's reference is another paper on this "scholarly" site...

Why Did the Trade Center Skyscrapers Collapse?
by Morgan Reynolds

"Virtually all the concrete (an estimated 100,000 tons in each tower) on every floor was pulverized into a very fine dust, a phenomenon that requires enormous energy and could not be caused by gravity alone ("…workers can’t even find concrete. ‘It’s all dust,’ [the official] said")."

Which references this ABC News site...


And a report on survivors dated Sept 16, 2001 in which is the following paragraph...

"Rescue workers have been searching around the clock for survivors of the twin towers disaster. But the efforts remain painstakingly difficult and tumultuous. One official said that workers can't even find concrete. "It's all dust," he said."

An unattributed quote in a news report five days after the event(and weeks before they found the concrete rubble(not pulverized) in the basements) becomes a scientific fact because it is referenced in another "scholar's" paper??? Who is the "one official" and did he know that the concrete would be found weeks later in the basement??? Had he conducted a scientific investigation of the whereabouts of the concrete, or was he just expressing his frustration about being unable to find any survivors???

This is CRAP "science" piled on other CRAP "science" piled on the misinterpretation of what some(unidentified) official said in a news report five days after 911 when NO ONE KNEW WHERE THE CONCRETE WAS OR IT'S CONDITION. Yet truthers still claim ALL the concrete was "dustified" and try to calculate the energy required to do that AS IF IT WAS A SCIENTIFIC FACT.

This, of course, is only a single point in the massive pile of CRAP that is the so called "scholars" sites and what passes as "research" there, but one man could spend his entire life pointing out others and it is basically not worthwhile doing so.

Alan said...

Welp, that ABC news article from Sept. 16th copied wrong. It shows what the link was titled and not the actual address. I've linked it below...

Two days after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, during an appearance on Pat Robertson’s television show, Falwell claimed that the attack was God’s judgment on America’s immorality.

“I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians, who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way - all of them who try to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen.’”

I wish Jeanne was here to reassure me about this one!

I just read that a poll indicates Al Franken is 22 POINTS behind Norm Coleman in the MN Senate race.

Well, September '08 is a long way off, but..........

Warner blasts Pentagon Internet move

Sen. Warner questions the Pentagon's rationale in its decision to block access to the social

Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) said today he will investigate the Pentagon’s decision to cut off troop access to MySpace, YouTube and more than a dozen other websites.

“Believe me, I am going to jump on that like a June bug right now,” said Warner, a member of the Armed Services Committee. “I’ve got a call into the Pentagon saying, ‘Hey guys, what is the rationale?’”

Citing security concerns and technological limits, the Pentagon has cut off access to those sites for personnel using the Defense Department's computer network. The change limits use of the popular outlets for service members on the front lines, who regularly post videos and journals.

“There is nothing more important to the men and women of the armed forces than to have that connection to home,” said Warner, who served in the U.S. Navy. “I will be looking into it today.”

Hey, John, why don't you jump like a June bug on the president over his crazy, stupid, mismanaged, aggressive, illegal War of Choice?

Typical religious control through application of guilt, instead of the less dominant, forgiveness.

Catholics, Jews, and Muslims all use guilt to their advantage.

I cordially invite them to put their guilt trip, 'where the Sun does not shine'.

Practice forgiveness, it is much less psychologically harmful.

DEN said...

Guilt: punishing yourself before God doesn't.

If the soldiers are allowed to use the computers for personal use, then why would certain places be banned? I can see there being rules about My Space and You Tube for soldiers doing office work on computers.

Oh, hell, I don't know what that's about and have other things to go read up on.

R.I.P. Mr. Falwell. Hope you found out some serious truths on the other side, that you were full of shit, or there's just nothing.

Bush will attend Jerry Falwell's funeral. He MUST protect his base.

Gerald said...

RIP, Jerry Falwell!

I have a serious problem with men or women of the cloth advocating death and destruction on my brothers and sisters in God.


People, no normal person chooses war over peace!!!

War is outmoded but we are too immature to realize that fact.

Gerald sez: Bush will attend Jerry Falwell's funeral. He MUST protect his base.


Alan said...

When I read about the military cutting off access to YouTube, etc... it mentioned that the military just recently opened their own version of YouTube, specifically for military videos and pictures. The article mentions how ironic it is that they were encouraging soldiers to post their clips, but now they can't even get to the site.
Anybody else heard of some sort of military version of youtube? I mean, I see ALOT of clips posted at military.com (membership required), but I don't think that's the same.

micki said...

I asked a relative in the AF what she thinks about this move. Okay, she's a Lt. Col. , but she said, this is really a terribly minor issue and it's unfortunate that people are whining who know nothing about it. Military service means that you're owned 'til you are out of the military, end of story.

She said critical medical information can be delayed because of people swarming to office computers to check their MySpace and upload their photos and videos they just took.

She pointed out that other internet options are available -- for instance through the USO who has provided wireless connections with ho blocks.

Micki, thats good, those kids need something to take their minds off the extended tours.

Dr. James Hansen has a recent interview with a Seattle-based organization (representative thereof) called Grist or Gristmill.

On the web...

Jerry Falwell made some interesting comments on why he started the Moral Majority. He became involved because of Roe v Wade and taking prayer out of the classroom. There may be more issues with him in the beginning but I cannot recall these issues.

With groups, organizations, and persons, they all start out with good intentions but as they become more powerful, they begin to believe what they do and say is right and if you do not agree with them, you are wrong.


DEN said...

Carey sent me an E-mail, I will post it in it's entirety, I don't think she will mind.

It's moment to moment. Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers--they were truly felt. I mean it. Thank God for the blog. More so, thank God for friends like you.

There's a reason I joined the blog last year. That's apparent now. I can't really write much, I get too choked up. I need your help in passing along to all my thanks and my feelings about my friends on both blogs.

Now Ken. Eventually I'll write about him on the blog. He was a deeply troubled man. He drank heavily--at one point so did I. He had the shortness of breath starting just at the time Clinton got his. He would not go to a doctor. He had the symptoms again a day before he died. He passed from a massive heart attack. He was on no heart medication because he wouldn't go to the doctor. Alcohol rushed everything up. He was 62. Please pass this along. I know people need to know.

This is the one situation we all have the deepest fears of--being left alone. I need everyone to know I'm not alone. I've been surrounded by angels and spirits. So have Brandon, Danny & Kevin. I knew something was seriously wrong and was in tears a half hour before the call and had been extremely nervous the whole day. I was being prepared in the last few months. That's how I see it in retrospect and I'll try to write about it. It will take me a long time to get this all out.

I knew you were there--all of you. It helped me so during the first horrendous days.

Brandon is okay. I wrote Micki a little about it last night. Please relate that Micki. Danny is okay (middle son). The other one, I fear is going to have a hard time of it. He left here during a bad time for Ken. He's in Oklahoma. He's getting married. God took care of him in that respect.

Thank you all for your concern. It's one step at a time.

You go girl!!

Your best years are ahead of you now. I am so glad you are OK, well somewhat OK, as OK as can be expected for the circumstances.

C'mon back when your ready, we will be waiting anxiously for your return.

Love, Den

Ohmigod....I meant NO blocks! I just noticed what I wrote previously.

Dr. B, it's awfully HOT over here for May!

It was 90º in North Bend today. And 85º in Seattle.

The website is for grist magazine -- where Dr. B saw the interview with Dr. Hansen
