WRITING: Quiet Quite

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

In the quiet of the night,
When only my failed dreams and ghosts speak to me,
I sadly hear the call of Fate,
Serenely and sirenly call,
“come join me”.
My answer is “soon, my love, soon enough.”

The “Facts” Keep Changing About the Boston Bombings — And It’s Fueling a Conspiracy Theory Industry
Important details like the suspects’ weapons, NYC plans and the shootout keep changing.

In the aftermath of massive, complicated crimes it’s not uncommon for a bit of crucial information to be immediately put forward by police, only to be contradicted later on. While it’s understandable that initial leads and assertions might end up being wrong in a dynamic situation like the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, wholesale contradictions can encourage skepticism of the motives of those releasing inaccuracies — as with initial, false reports that Osama bin Laden hid behind his wife when U.S. forces shot him. Another effect of changing details can be to encourage conspiracy theorists who latch onto inconsistencies, and to undermine trust in authorities.

  • Suspects’ arms 
  • Boat gunfight?
  • 7 -Eleven and the MIT officer
  • Carjacking
  • Trip to NYC

And, growing!

Argh!

How did the suspect hiding in the boat shoot himself when he didn’t have a gun?

MONEY: Anemic US growth

Sunday, April 28, 2013

U.S. Economy Grew at 2.5% Rate in 1st Quarter
The U.S. economy failed to gather as much steam as expected in the first quarter. Gross domestic product advanced at a 2.5% annual rate between January and March, less than the 3.2% expansion expected by economists. Still, the GDP gain was stronger than the 0.4% growth in the prior quarter.

With all the “stimulus”, QE, and all the other manipulation, this is a joke!

We borrow money from China to spend on stuff we don’t need and Gooferment programs.

Absurd!

WRITING: Pardigms and memes

Saturday, April 27, 2013

If paradigms are what I sense,

and meme are how I think of things,

then paradigms are how my body fools me,

and memes are how I fool myself.

After all what is reality?

But fools fooling everything and every one!

TINFOILHAT: There’s more to Watergate than meets the eye

Unanswered Questions About Watergate
There are many—why is no one asking them?
By Beverly Gage|Posted Monday, April 22, 2013, at 10:26 AM

*** begin quote *** 

The effect is mildly ridiculous. All the same, Stein provides one of the film’s few hints that Watergate is not, even now, an entirely settled matter. With four decades’ perspective, there are still big political questions to ask: How did a Republican Party on the verge of collapse in 1974 surge back six years later to launch the Age of Reagan? How much of the scandal was really about Nixon and his paranoia, and how much was about a broader set of institutional and political rivalries? Did the reforms put in place after the scandal—on presidential power, on intelligence prerogatives—effectively constrain the executive branch? To what degree did Watergate, once seen as a great Democratic triumph, help to fuel a conservative anti-government backlash?

*** end quote ***

What was concealed before this all came out?

Was this just a bureaucrat annoyed because he didn’t get the job?

Do we think this doesn’t go on all the time?

Argh!

EVLYNN: Donated a “double” today

Friday, April 26, 2013

They didn’t have the usual setup today so everything was “approximated”. Hence, they were only taking singles and doubles today. DRAT!

Due to my “superior qualifications” as a “cow”, they were able to “milk” me for a double.

That translates to four bags of platelets for someone who needs them.

They find it harder to get platelet donors than whole blood donors. 

(Hey, it’s hard work hooked up to one of these “dumb” boxes. And, you have to sort of focus, “squeeze the little ball on the draw, and relax on the return”. Over, and over, and over. For about 2+ hours. Fortunately, I’m a good layer around. Today, I listed to all my @tswift13 music.)

Any way, that brings me to 70/75 bags replaced.

Never let it be said that I let Our Girl down with an unkept promise.

(But my butt still hurts!)

Laff!

Join me next month?

TINFOILHAT: Boston Bombing — Saudi connection

Friday, April 26, 2013

GOVERNMENT
O’REILLY TO BECK ON SAUDI NATIONAL STORY: ‘WE’RE ALWAYS WILLING TO GIVE YOU A HEARING’
Apr. 26, 2013 9:06am Mike Opelka

*** begin quote ***

During Thursday night’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, Glenn Beck discussed TheBlaze’s investigation into the government’s curious handling of the Saudi national who was questioned in the hospital after the Boston Marathon bombings.

The two former Fox colleagues talked about the possible reasons for DHS detaining the Saudi man and O’Reilly said he’s willing to give Beck “a hearing.”

Beck laid out the story to O’Reilly, showing him a copy of the front page of the report on Ali Abdulrahman Alharbi and explained that page two described the man as “armed and dangerous.”

*** end quote ***

Clearly, we can not get the straight scoop from our politicians and bureaucrats.

Do any of the Sheeple and Clovers care?

Argh!
