a few days ago I posted some words about the hassle being made about healthcare-reform, and the huge amounts of money spent in the US on ‘defense‘, which seems to be taken for granted.
I’ve done some more surfing the net on the topic, and came to the conclusion that there are some weirdo’s overthere.

First I want to explain this is not about US-bashing, for me and many people in the world the US is the cradle of lots of interesting cultural things, science, literature etc. And lots of nice people. Helas there are some morons with the biggest mouths, as shown in the ‘townhall meetings’.

Maybe ‘culture’ is not the right word, actually America has no culture of its own (besides the natives’) but being a melting pot ‘american culture’ is the zenith of all cultures.
The frightening thing is the huge spendings on military, and the huge consumption, something like 5% of the world population consuming 25% of the recources. Leading to a deficit that seems unsolvable, and the suspicion that this war-machine is there to maintain the obesitas-hummer-lifestyle by obtaining the goods at gunpoint. Irak is about oil, Afghanistan is about gaspipelines that otherwise will go through the Russian hemisphere. Like the Georgia-conflict, same story. Democracy and religion are just the excuses. Other conflicts like in Africa about all kinds of crudes may have no direct military interference, but CIA and all kinds of special services are swarming around (like China’s, Korea’s, Japanees, European etc), with ‘development agents’ etc.

Reading some of the reactions on the healthcare issue, I get the impression of an upcoming civil war not far away. The fanatism and the trigger-happy ‘militias’ reviving after their slumber during 8 years of republican government are some scary ingredients. The hysteria on the ‘townhall meetings’ showing some pre-human evolutionary stadium, be it that a great group of those primates don’t believe in evolution, want to deny science (or leave it classified in army labs), and at the same time pretend to have the highest moral standards.
Like ‘pro life’, the strange mixture of anti-intelectualism, fundamentalism, and ‘love for live’, which some of them brings to taking other people’s lives… Too stupid to acknowledge that their policy of  ‘abstinention’ leads to far more abortions than some regulated system. Like regulating drugs instead of the war on drugs, like regulating whatever instead of their ‘freedom’ at the cost of a war on the rest of the world. Crazy enough to start a (civil) war. And I guess a good part of the army will choose the side of the primates, because they are drilled that way.

Saw this vid where the townhall (nearly)riots are attributed to some memo of the ‘right principles’ movement, which should be orchestrated by the insurance-companies.

Later, this was ‘debunked’, by saying the man had no ties to any lobby (he is insurance-agent by coincidence, but not for medical insurances), but not denying they spread the memo, just some parts of it ‘were highlighted out of context’ – is not that what they all do, especially when you encourage people to disturb debate by 5 ‘well prepared questions’, and yell them simultaniously to discourage the other side?

On ‘The Young Turks’ I saw an item with the same subject, so they are also part of this ‘liberal leftist conspiracy’, and from there I stumbled on this one, showing the primates in their natural habitat, obviously afraid of loosing their ‘white supremacy’, and showing their evil: someone with a bad conscience will subscribe their own deeds to the others…

Makes me wonder also, why is it that in the cirkles of people with those ‘moral standards’, christian, muslim, whatever, critisizing others for ‘loose morals’, that in those cirkles you’ll find the most rapes, incest, and all kinds of filth? I think I even don’t wonder, it’s the oppression and constantly pointing at other’s immoral behaviour that creates the perverted minds…

Here an article that shows there still are some non-morons overthere, like this one also.
Here a site which name says enough strange thing is some of the items I agree with, like the internet-control thing (though I doubt it is possible due to the decentralized structure of  ‘our’ net) but most of it is about the blessings of the conservative thinking, their obviously not-hated Fox and the fox’s mouth Glenn Beck, and this one is also on the right side, but at least the comments are diverse and there are some interesting between them

At Fox the scenario’s are allready discussed…

Another possibility is the USA just splitting up, States declaring themselves independent. But allthough America has done a lot to split up countries like the all too independent Yugoslavia, I doubt if the federal government will tolerate such behaviour, and then there’ll be also some kind of civil war, be it of an other nature.

Let’s hope non of the possibilities will come that far. Or maybe when it happens the biggest part of the population is busy watching some playoffs or Idols, ignoring what’s happening outside, like most of them now seem to ignore what’s happening abroad…

22 juli, een dag die later in de geschiedenisboeken bijgeschreven zal worden….

Times Square, NYC, 11.00 AM

robert_burcknyc-mayors-office ‘Naked Cowboy’ Robert Burck gaat vandaag, 22 juli een ‘big announcement’ afleggen. Z’n site is nu al slecht te bereiken, terwijl het daar midden in de nacht is.

Als je op de startpagina op http://www.nakedcowboy.com klikt dan opent de rest van de site.

Om 11 uur plaatselijke tijd moet het op ‘zijn’ Times Square gebeuren, dus als je in de buurt bent, dan kan je getuige zijn van ‘the history of tomorrow’. al is z’n site slecht te bereiken, je kan altijd de laatste gebeurtenissen volgen via twitter en facebook.

PitzPages heeft de nodige naspeuringen gedaan, en kan alvast een tipje van de sluier oplichten, ‘Naked’ gaat voor het burgemeesterschap van de Big Apple, dus Bloomberg, watch your steps!

Voor de enkeling die niet weet wie ‘Naked’ aka Robert Burck is, hieronder een filmpje met een interview van enige tijd geleden, hem afgenomen door ‘The Resident’ Lori Harfenist.

update 23 juli:
zie hier de site met alles over Naked’s kandidatuur, verleden, heden en toekomstplannen. Heb begrepen dat Lori Harfenist na de ‘big announcement’ een exclusief interview (in stretched limo) heeft opgenomen, die plak ik er eerdaags ook nog wel onder….

Vandaag is het de 40ste verjaardag van de eerste moonwalk. Oplettende wolkenspottertjes weten dat ik een liefhebber van complottheorieën ben (zonder daar meteen een oordeel over te hebben), en die maanlanding is ook een dankbaar onderwerp.

De belangen waren groot, Amerika moest en zou laten zien dat ze de technologische achterstand op de Russen ingehaald hadden, en het idee dat alles in een studio opgenomen zou zijn is helemaal niet zo’n waandenkbeeld als vaak verondersteld wordt. Stanley Kubrick wist te vertellen dat hij door militaire kringen benaderd was om alles voor te bereiden om studioöpnames te maken voor het geval het mislukken mocht, hij heeft echter nooit beweerd dat dat ook daadwerkelijk gebeurd was. Ik denk dat Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin en Michael Collins daadwerkelijk geland zijn, dat hooguit de opnamen hier en daar wat opgepimpt zijn om het geheel wat spectaculairder in de huiskamers te brengen. Net zoals gebeurde met heldhaftige foto’s van WOII (of één van die andere talloze oorlogen waar de US voortdurend in betrokken is), en waarschijnlijk zelfs met opnamen van 911. Vandaar die talloze ‘anomalieën’ in de beelden.
Maar er zijn later nog Apollo 12 t/m 17 geweest, dat is heus niet allemaal een Hollywood-opera geweest. Denk ik.
Genoeg gekletst. Going back in times, 40 jaar alweer, hier wat stilstaande en bewegende beelden. Al dan niet om op de pixel na te pluizen op onlogische dingen. Gefeliciteerd Apollo XI….

Ik stuitte zomaar op een hoop cannabis-praat van de week. Pas geleden zette ik nog dit stukje over ‘the hemp conspiracy‘ op dit blog, van de week had ‘The Resident’ Lori Harfenist een item met zo’n beetje dezelfde strekking. Dat ging allemaal voornamelijk over de praktische toepassingen van hennep (papier, touw, ‘plastic’, alles wat maar met de oersterke vezels gedaan kan worden), weed is tegenwoordig natuurlijk het meest bekend als geneesmiddel/genotmiddel.
