I wish to first offer my congratulations to the winners - Letitia James, Laurie Cumbo, Scott Stringer, and especially to Bill de Blasio and Ken Thompson.
What a fantastic thing to wake up to at 11:00 PM!
I have had some trouble getting around to posting a new piece...at least, until today.
I can't say for certain what has been disturbing me to the point that I couldn't put idea to paper, in a sense. Certainly, there's a lot to talk about.
First, let's dig right into the George Zimmerman trial.
I'm not glued to the television, trying to peer into every aspect of the trial. There's only one facet of the case that needs examination: did George Zimmerman shoot Trayvon Martin in self-defense?
My quest for the truth of the events of September 11th, 2001 continue.
This guest piece by Russ Clarke covers alot of bases, aided by YouTube clips you may or may not have seen.
Pay particular attention to the Barry Jennings clip. Barry died two days before the official report on the "collapse" of the Salomon Brothers Building, also known as WTC Building Seven.
Note - it is VERIFIED that there were explosions within WTC 7.
Without further ado:
A man who produces something of value, or helps to keeps things that produce something of value working, are worth more and should be compensated more than one who just moves monies around. Banks are no longer "risking money"; indeed, if there's any risk, it's borne upon We The People.
I just want you to think about that.
You should read Philip Giraldi's article, Christmas in Connecticut.
As we approach the 11th year since the most horrific terrorist attack to take place on America's shores, I ask you to look back to the other events that have shaped America:
Before I get into this very interesting piece, let's talk about PROMIS.
PROMIS stands for PROsecutor's Management Information Systems, and was created by Bill and Nancy Hamilton, under their company, INSLAW.
INSLAW had created this incredible bit of software, and planned on licensing it to the government.
The government did indeed want it...but they didn't want to pay the Hamiltons.
Do you know that this year's September 11th falls on a full moon?
Go to http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon and check it out for yourselves.
A co-worker of mine caught this link on a movie channel (I guess there is something of worth on TV, after all!) - go to http://endofamerica63.com, and prepare yourself for a great presentation from Porter Stansbury. If you know the name, you know that his information is sound. Let me know what you think of it, after you've watched it.
Let's get something out into the open.
Howard "Gatemouth" Graubard, and to a slightly lesser extent, David "mole333" Michaelson, have called me to task for something I haven't done.
In short, they have intimated that I have said that "the Jews" are responsible for the events of September 11th, 2001.
I have done no such thing.
C'mon, now...you know how this goes:
If you can't explain where NINE TRILLION DOLLARS went, the American people are NOT on the hook for it.
Get on the horn and contact your representatives and let them know YOU will NOT be held responsible for someone else's shortcomings.
I heard on WCBS News this morning that there was a ruling handed down from Washington that cancer would NOT be covered under the Zadroga Bill.
You must know what a crock this is, and those first responders suffering from 9/11-related maladies, this is further insult to injury.
Never let it be said that the bloggers here at Room 8 lack a sense of humor.
I'm going to paraphrase this famous quote: "In a world of lies and deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
This is a credo I stand by. We are awash in a sea of mistruths, obfuscations and outright asshattery; our "news: organizations actually have a mandate to LIE TO US.
Does anyone rec all the case of the RBGH scandal? This came about when two reporters proposed a story involving the dangers of this additive to our milk supply.
