Chemtrails, Romney, Clint Eastwood, and Turkey Vultures

with 22 comments

Well, not making much progress on the chemtrails post. OK, no progress. I want to be objective, but I keep running into a reef. For the chemtrails theory to be true, one of two things must be happening. The nation’s air traffic control system must be compromised as part of the plot, or somehow airliners or other scheduled flights must be secretly equipped with spraying apparatus. Either possibility would seem to involve so many co-conspirators as to defy credulity. Someone did post a video in a comment though, and I’ll watch it soon enough. I just tried to watch the video of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the RNC. I only watched a minute or so. It was painful. Incredibly painful. I guess the RNC thought they were getting a rousing speech by Harry Callahan, of Dirty Harry fame. Instead they got a rambling mumbling old man. Gran Torino could have been his legacy, if he’s lucky it will be and this sad swan song will be forgotten. It’s the end of an era.

I’ve given some thought to the comment left on the last post claiming that maybe rapists should be given some parental rights, because children raised with two parents do better than children raised by one. And after careful thought, the commenter is wrong. I don’t believe that forcibly impregnating a women gives a rapist any parental rights. That’s literally no different than the biblical: “If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives” (Deuteronomy 22:28–29). This is barbaric. Though if one wants to read a lovely modern Christian apologist writing about this, go here. It’s a good way to give one’s gag reflex a work out. I’m really tired of people twisting the Bible’s sickeningly patriarchal view that women are property of men into some sort of faux concern for women. The fact that 31 states give rapists some parental rights shows how far we have to go. If a woman who was impregnated by a rapist wants to have the rapist in her life, that’s her decision. If she wants to give him some parental rights, he can adopt the child.

This election is starting to get to me like the invasion of Iraq did. IE I feel like being drunk all the time to make the pain go away. While I am no fan of the Democrats, the Republicans are clearly in a race to the bottom. They spent the past four years doing everything they could to obstruct and delegitimize Obama (Yes, I looked it up, record number of filibusters in Congress.) And now their campaign is that Obama didn’t accomplish anything! Well, actually, he accomplished quite a lot. And even Mitt waded into the mud shit with his “no one has asked me about my birth certificate.” There’s a reason for that Mitt, it’s because you are white. Mr Romney might as well have said “Vote for me and get that nigger out of the White House.” Classy, real classy. Then there’s the Republican platform, which among other things calls for changing the Constitution to make fertilized eggs into human beings. There’s so many things sick and wrong with that idea it’s scary. And no, it’s not about “saving babies.” It’s about making sure woman are breeding cows, as the Bible intended. (Don’t worry, I’ve got some uncharitable things to say about our war-mongering so-called progressives in an upcoming post.)

I put up the bird comic for a variety of reasons. For one I thought it was funny. Secondly it challenges people to look at things from different perspectives. Lastly a reminder that we aren’t that far away from Turkey Vultures evolutionary speaking. And we both started from the same place, segmented worms of some sort. Humans are basically a highly evolved segmented worm. Our ribs being the last vestige of the segments, but we’re still basically a worm, a big fleshy tube where food goes in one end and waste goes out the other. Evolution is awesome. I’m also getting tired of the endless efforts to teach the Christian Creation myth as some sort of theory on par with the Theory of Evolution. No, creationism has zero scientific creds, and since it isn’t testable, it’s not even a scientific theory. Creationism is no different than any other creation myth, and there are thousands of them. Which is not an attack on religion, it’s an attack on religions that are still stuck in the Bronze Age.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  3. Hey wow! OK lets run a riff on religions stuck in the Bronze Age! I got one for ya, Islam! Lets talk shit about that! You could write tons of posts and get tons of replies… Doug you miss the point about this whole Creation myth BS… I really dont think that a person can exist in this country, surrounded by this tech filled world, and take creationism seriously
    Oh, and talking point #1 a white guy who is not a racist NEVER uses the N word. If need be, refer to it as such; the N word.
    Talking point #2 a white guy NEVER NEVER EVER USES THE N WORD IN A NEGATIVE MANNER. Even when you are trying to make a point. And I really dont think Romney thinks like that.
    As weak a candidate as he is, he is better for the country than this Bolshevik…

    • Well Steve, your prove Doug’s point about the intelligence of the right wing. If you can’t see from the Republican Platform and comments that they are waging a war to take us back to the dark ages, you never will. I used to think that a person’s common sense and innate sense of justice would cause them to see the hypocrisy of the right agenda but obviously that is not true. A huge number of the people supporting them do believe the Creation myth and are ready to vote against their very best interests to insure that everyone abides by their social mores.

  4. Steve, falling for the team A vs team B BullShi* like so many in this country.. sad.

    There are plenty of Bronze Age thinkers who use tech everyday. They turn on a light switch and think its Gods will that the light goes on. Then they use the light to go read their Bible or Koran or whatever..
    They still believe in fairy tales.

    Romney and his boy Ryan are every bit as bad for this country as Obama. Real choices are not allowed in America. Just look at how the Republicans screwed the Vermont delegates so they could not vote for Ron Paul. Talk about Bolshevism? Look no further than Romney.

    So you want to ban words too, or approve their usage? Like the ‘N’ word? THOUGHT POLICE !
    Your a book burner Steve.. the kind of people we should really be worried about.

    • “They still believe in fairy tales.” Because John Galt knows for fact that they are simply fairytales. Clearly John Galt has the power to look beyond the universe and is thereby qualified to debunk that myth. Thank God, I mean the Universe for John Galt. Now we can stop all those pesky wars because John Galt figured out it was all just a fairytale.

      • Neil deGrasse Tyson says it well: “God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance.”

  5. Well you know what John you are right, but since Paul doesnt have a chance Im going with the “most conservitive guy on the ticket” strategy… Sucks, cause I know Romney is an idiot, but Obama isnt cutting it.


    September 1, 2012 at 5:56 pm

  6. Oh heck Steve, take a chance for once in your life and write in Ron.. only YOU will know you’ve done it.

  7. We went through high level secrecy that permeated the entire culture in the development of the atomic bomb’s Manhattan Project. The secrecy in the NATO-driven geoengineering operation is also under the guise of National Security that prevents media and high level administrators from revealing or acknowledging it in 28 nation states who are NATO members….and possibly more. Note that IRAN has been vocal about how their water is being “stolen” by weather mod operations. NATO must carry out the banksters’ orders to control IRAN’s oil reserves and banking system and stop them from talking about secret weather modification. Wake up…Follow the money. It’s always the banksters running things.

    • The people and scientists involved in the Manhattan Project had ample motivation to maintain secrecy. No such motivation exists for keeping this putative contrail conspiracy a secret, possibly even the opposite. And Iran claims the holocaust never happened, among other silliness. —Doug


      September 4, 2012 at 8:12 am

      • How do you know the Manhattan project was full of people that were “motivated to maintain secrecy” ?. Compartmentalization of responsibility and production is the best way to prevent any single person from knowing the true mission. That’s how the Manhattan Project succeeded…although there were a few leaks.
        There were over 13 project locations that produced different aspects of the bomb. Many personnel had no idea they had actually worked to produce an atomic bomb until after they read about it in the newspapers.

        Secrecy can be maintained in many ways. Extortion, personal threats, blackmail, fear of losing a job are a few . Secret clearances issued to key personnel is a popular way to gag them. You can tell them the mission is a “national security” priority to gain their allegiance.

        Actually, the 9/11 cover-up is an example where extortion, threats and murder have been used to maintain silence although the silence has been broken by a few….but the media will never cover the story.

  8. With the Banksters running nearly everything, neither candidate is capable of solving our problems and now it appears the GOP has set Romney is on a deliberate road to defeat. We can only speculate that a GOP loss will force the Democrat Party to take the heat for whatever disaster the bankster-run thugocracy has planned.

  9. The Case Orange publication is only one report that provides conclusive evidence of global aerosol geoengineering and climate modification. But here are some telescopic videos that actually show commercial airliners are now involved in spraying weather mod aerosols. Notice the “EMIRATES” aircraft is also spraying aerosols. This is your clue that weather modification is very important to BIG OIL because they now have the ability to melt polar caps to reach previously iced-over oil and gas reserves. Man-made Global Warming?…You bet. …But not like we are told. This is a deep, deep rabbit-hole in the works for decades.

  10. The “stunning video” of spraying by commercial jets shows unnatural aerosol emissions that become visible almost as soon as they leave the engine exhaust. Normal water vapor contrails could never appear in such close proximity and normally require about 2 plane lengths to become visible. RULE of THUMB: A “trail” that becomes visible ahead of the tail section is NOT a normal water vapor contrail.

    The Case Orange report is validated by an aerospace engineer in an hour-long presentation.

  11. I have to admit that showing me a video and claiming that the conspiracy interpretation of the video is the only possible explanation isn’t going to convince me anymore than showing me a video of a building falling down and claiming that demolition is the only possible interpretation. I am neither an expert in contrails nor demolitions, so I rely on expert opinion to interpret stuff like this. The experts opinion’s on 9/11 videos were one of the things that persuaded me tha the “it’s basic physics” crowd was basically fool or liars, since the collapse of the WTC buildings were doctoral level physics, not basic physics. I will however look into what expert opinion says about these chemtrails videos, I did say I would look into this. —Doug


    September 4, 2012 at 8:18 am

    • I think the “chemtrails” are tied in with haarp not so much with weather mod….. spraying metal powder then microwaving it from the ground might make a nice plasma missile defence….besides their are other ways of changing the weather and they don’t seem to be any secret. And Doug, this fool hopes you eat crow on 9-11 someday ;) hehe


      September 4, 2012 at 11:30 am

      • LOL As I’ve said before, I can imagine waking up one to screaming headlines where a 9/11 co-conspirator had come forward with actual evidence showing some special ops team under Cheney’s direct control had demolished the WTC buildings. Meanwhile other conspirators had fled or already been captured and confessed hoping to avoid the death penalty, while a million Americans were gathered in a growing crowd inWashinton demmanding swift justice. I don’t think it’s very likley, but will gladly eat crow (properly seasoned) if such transpires. —Doug


        September 4, 2012 at 11:54 am

    • The 9/11 cover-up is easily demonstrated with high school level Newtonian physics. The issue of contrails vs. aerosols is similar. The video successfully demonstrates that numerous aircraft are releasing aerosols that have nothing to do with water vapor contrails…Perhaps you’re not disturbed by this revelation, but most people become very upset. .. If you want to know why, you will need to do a lot of reading and do your own research to learn the details that took many of us a long time to uncover. Maybe you will find something different or something more that we have found. As a head-start I recommend 2 documentaries by Michael Murphy that reveal the possibilities.

      • Unfortunately for the “basic physics” 9/11 meme, I spent some time reading in a forum where graduate physics students were discussing the 9/11 videos. There was nothing “high school” about their discussion, which of course there wouldn’t be, since giant buildings being struck by airliners and burning isn’t something that can be tested in a lab. The collapse of the WTC buildings is highly advanced physics, not basic physics. —Doug


        September 4, 2012 at 11:59 am

      • At the risk of crushing your “meme” we have millions of non-PhD’s in several languages around the world who understand Architect Richard Gage’s basic science presentation “Blueprint For Truth” well enough to be convinced on the impossibility of gravitational collapse of 3 buildings: The Twin Towers and WTC, Building 7. This is not rocket science regardless what you read in some forum.
