While I was Jones

Tiger's ululation near the door brings me outside to investigate, the full moon brightens the way, there I find silence and Tiger wailing from half a mile a way within moments. It is near midnight, high moon and as the moon is full I am guessing so must be his spirit. His all night travels are worrisome to me, sometimes I negociate the fix and feel it is somehow wrong to stifle nature that way. Who am I to decide if his future offspring should have a chance at life. Knowing the rate feral cats die I would have to find and care for his future offspring, and who knows where he is by now. I just hope he is safe and sound. That is Tiger curled up beside my temporary pond under the pine tree in the picture of the red Japanese maple and sage. When he gets over his teen-age years and less boyish in ways boys don't like affection I will get a nice portrait of him.

I am changing internet service, had no intention to when calling, was concerning billing methods I wanted to change, took two days, a Friday and the following Monday. The phone company got involved, May at yahoo was supper nice no complaints. The third time I called , conference call, I couldn't understand her name, but Larry was with the phone company on the second line. "Couldn't understand" ask the opening confirming questions that affirm to her I am me, then just breathing, no hang on or checking back to see if I am ok, need anything, feel I am waiting too long, nothing, nada but breathing for thirty minutes.

Larry speaks up after I mumble something to myself hoping she would affirm to me this was a real phone call, and I didn't get lost in cyberspace, "I am still here". So we start talking, and he tells me about their internet service, the cost not much more than I am paying now, rated tops in customer care, so he sold me, while online with "couldn't understand" at the yahoo. I made a crack like, " maybe they are taping this and will use it in training sessions" he bellowed with laughter, I think it made his day. Probably made everyone's day he told. After I hung up I realized Larry had made the call, and what if "couldn't understand" was cut off by Larry, and Larry was just a good opportunist, I have been with the same service for nearly ten years, so I wonder.

Been reading some other blogs on this blogspot thing, good writers, I wonder if you have to be a writer to blog here, I might be intruding. I think I will try to comment on a few I liked, and maybe make friends, or find some traffic here and then comments on my stuff also.

I read about Openoffice.org, so I love to play with different programs and was curious, mainly because some one stated it was as good as wordPerfect. That got my attention, I use wordPerfect have never liked the Microsoft. I down loaded it hoping it had a flexible database builder, file sharing tool, automatic like. I can use basic to build it, and if anyone knows of one that is around, I would like to look at it. I want to update a link file, automatically, while I type or paste. It will have to monitor key strokes and look for that address marker http: and then copy to the data file just the address. But I don't know as I never grew out of my training wheels in computer programing. I do know one thing, Microsoft stumped the advances society could have achieved when they took over the software market.

I was computer winged on the old network systems that took up rooms at college. Before auto cad, before windows where it was basic, and a now rare to find dos file tree and shelves full of floppies. I still haven't found something as useful for my hobbies as database II. With simple tools great things can be done. I built my own programs to efficiently maintain the quality control program at the manufacturing plant, also built a workable and very usable warehousing cataloging locating system for materials in use, and in storage. I may explore Openoffice.org and see just how simple and hopefully flexible it can be.

Voters Volts

Remember JFK, the tides turned then and there has been a battle every sense the last time the peoples voice was attended to in Washington, or seemed to be.

BlackBoxVoting.org the efforts are wide spread and not so concentrate on one precinct or county that is surprisingly uncovering an all out voter fraud, evidence as early as September 14th intrusions to voting systems. It is serious no doubt, throughout the spread of questionable results the ways vary, to physically throwing out ballots to hidden system glitches.
Voting irregularities are wide spread, and in the states of obvious aim thru the scope of the exit polls and that is what they are for despite some wanting to exit the exit polls.

Mareen Farrell ask "Magic ballot theory, anyone?", it is almost comical, they know we know they don’t seem to care and carry on as if they have done nothing wrong and they are in fact again a legitimate sponsor to the American way. American morals, values and principle are the things truly at stake with this clique in Washington. Half of America does not want them there, that is sure, what most suspect that was skewed to look like nearly half and more like three fourths, now that would be a mandate.

The magic is in the con, not magic at all, slight of hand, skill some admiringly call it but those who get slighted rarely view it as skill and become skillful themselves in rectifying the wrong.

Felonious Voting Machine Manufacturers -- "An investigation into the surprisingly-sordid history of America’s "election services industry" has revealed that executives and owners of the two largest companies, E S & S and Sequoia Pacific, have been convicted of bribery and suborning public officials in more than a dozen states. And while a felony conviction may be enough to prevent you from voting in Florida, convicted felons can take heart in the fact that the "blemish" on their record in no way disqualifies them from owning companies counting the votes." Mad Cow Productions

People of reason and resolve have fears but not of terror of losing our American way, our republic and the democracy the republic provides. Our constitution for better or worst works, proven to work now for over two hundred years. A living document, but living not on life support but on love of life and that is what they despise. The constitution is in danger, grave danger from the right wing nuts, and yes godwacks a parody that defines our fears in The Revised Constitution of God’s United States. America 2014: An Orwellian Tale

Human enhancement is the concern of the Republican party in Washington State in their vote recount objections, the recount is in the governors race. The free press announced the Ohio Presidential Results to be Challenged in Ohio this week. Wonder if the major media will be allowed to cover these proceedings, or will they remain locked down on the subject? And then there is this sobering view and not sure if the legal facts on historical prejudgments are accurate but it is possibly true.

Judge Richard Posner wrote,"The Constitution does not in so many words confer a right to vote, though it has been held to do so implicitly……Rather, it confers on the states broad authority to regulate the conduct of elections, including federal ones."

Posner writes in his book, Law, Pragmatism, and Democracy, "Few citizens have the formidable intellectual and moral capacities (let alone the time) required for the role that [participatory, deliberative democracy] assigns to the citizenry, although defenders of the concept believe that participation in democratic political activity strengthens these capacities, enabling a virtuous cycle."

So Judaically speaking few of us American citizens have the formidable intellectual and moral capacities to participate in deliberative democracy such as voting for public office, so it is all show for most of us and just a few with the right creditably get their votes counted. Diebold and NASED VOTING SYSTEMS/ITA built these machines to determine that you pushing bottons on screens are countable, amazing.

Water Wonderful Water


Persuasions these woods display
generating perceptions of correctness
holds my dismay

this correctness I shall share
without gloom or haze
with only lucidity I will say
tis life we betray

let bright moonlight come in
thru the soul
casting out the darkness to the ground
leaving it to shadow in eternity


these woods holds me
with limbs and leafs for warmth

water flows washed-up for cleansing
expired to air
accumulates for thirst of ground

then afresh streams flux with earth
to only conceive essence of being
this my conception of creation
this creator of foundations of life

water wonderful water

you comprehend but deny avow
and facade this truth to contain self replica
you perceive equality with water
via your ecclesiastical praxes

what superiority on water?
by reason of nature
proves your misconception of your world

What do Godwacks and the decline of the dollar have in common?

I've wondered what a good term would be, and approve this suggestion Godwacks as it seems a term to fit well.

[Given the near-fascist nature of U.S. governmental behavior lately, I do not think it is overstating the case to observe that we liberals seem to have become, at least to some degree, the new Jews of the rising Republican Reich. You remember the old German theme about a certain kind of people being responsible for everything wrong with an otherwise perfect white Christian society. It took a Republican mind to figure out that ‘‘elite’’ liberals constituted exactly such a threat to our national way of life. Remember that the German public saw the Jews as being against their ‘‘values’’ too, and that they had declared cultural and legal war on the Jews long before Hitler came along to galvanize the most nationalistic elements among the German public.]

The value of your dollar represents the value of your time, people
No one showed up to buy our bonds ... the usual foreign investors that usually bail us out didn’t even bother to show ... I guess Bulgaria had an estate sale.
_________

During a routine sale of U.S. Treasury bonds in early September, one of the essential pillars holding up the economy suddenly disappeared. Foreigners have been regularly buying nearly half of all debt issued by the U.S. government. On Sept. 9, for the first time that anyone could remember, they stayed home. "Thoughts of panic flickered out there," said Sadakichi Robbins, head of global fixed-income trading at Bank Julius Baer. ....
A cheaper dollar reduces the value of American securities, making them less attractive to foreign investors. That could eventually precipitate what Robbins called "the doomsday scenario" —— Japan and China not only refusing to buy U.S. bonds, but selling some of their $1.3 trillion in reserves. .... Neither the dollar nor the deficits became a hot-button issue during the presidential campaign, for obvious reasons. No politician has ever won an election by telling people their standard of living is going to go down, particularly at a moment when it's so easy to get a loan. .... That's why the Sept. 9 auction prompted concern. Usually indirect bidders, which include foreign governments, are heavy buyers at Treasury auctions. This time, their purchases were less than 3%. Traders speculated that Japan was finally calling it quits. What happened was never explained, but neither was it repeated. "It turned out to be a fluke," said Kim Rupert, managing director for global fixed-income analysis at Action Economics, a consulting firm. "But at first blush, it was 'Oh my gosh.'

The war is about the good ol dollar vs the new euro, not terrorist, terror is there now but tell me whom it is that is most terrified, a solder armed to the gills riding in an armored tank or a mother codling here children as the bombs blow the walls down around them. The times have two estimates on war casualties one is double the other, and the medics are accused of shooting the one half to come to the last figure, go figure. 800, 1000 and even 2000 unarmed civilians dead, bodies of insurgent fighters found ... you do not want to know but I am going to tell ya anyways.
Fallugah slaughter of women and children, I am very proud of the value of my time.
OPEC wants to trade based on euro USA only plays trade with dollars or don’t play at all, gets all mean and nasty making you wear your underwear over your head while you dance to bullets.

New York Times Rewrites Fallujah History
November 16, 2004
In three recent reports about the military invasion of the Iraqi city of Fallujah, the New York Times has misreported the facts about the April 2004 invasion of the city and the toll it took on Iraqi civilians.
On November 8, the Times reported: "In April, American troops were closing in on the city center when popular uprisings broke out in cities across Iraq. The outrage, fed by mostly unconfirmed reports of large civilian casualties, forced the Americans to withdraw. American commanders regarded the reports as inflated, but it was impossible to determine independently
how many civilians had been killed."
The next day, the Times made the same point, reporting that the U.S. "had to withdraw during a previous fight for the city in April after unconfirmed reports of heavy civilian casualties sparked outrage among both Sunni and Shiite Iraqis." And on November 15, the Times noted that
the current operation "redressed a disastrous assault on Fallujah last April that was called off when unconfirmed reports of large civilian casualties drove the political cost too high."
It's unclear why the Times considers those civilian deaths "unconfirmed." While there is some debate over precise figures, this wording leaves the impression that nothing can be reasonably known about deaths in Fallujah.
The head of Fallujah's hospital, Dr. Rafie al-Issawi, has consistently maintained that more than 600 people were killed in the initial U.S. siege of Fallujah in April 2004, a figure that rose to more than 800 as the siege was lifted and people pinned down by the fighting were able to register their families' deaths (Knight-Ridder, 5/9/04). More than 300 of the dead, according to al-Issawi, were women and children. The Iraqi Health Ministry in Baghdad, part of the U.S.-installed government, gave a lower figure of about 271 killed, with 52 of the dead being women and children. On October 26, the independent British-based group Iraq Body Count reported that the civilian death toll in Fallujah in April was about 600, based on their extensive evaluation of the numbers reported by local hospital officials and the Health Ministry, as well as mainstream media accounts.
Other journalistic investigations depict the reality of widespread civilian death in Fallujah: An Associated Press tally of the dead in Iraq (4/30/04) discovered that in Fallujah "two football fields were turned into cemeteries, with hundreds of freshly dug graves, marked with wooden planks scrawled with names -- some with names of women, some marked specifically as children. At one of the fields, an AP reporter was told by volunteer gravediggers on April 11 that more than 300 people had been buried there." A Reuters report (4/13/04) quoted researchers from Human Rights Watch calling for an investigation based on reports they received from residents fleeing the violence in Fallujah. Even the lower estimates provided by the Health Ministry debunk the Times' repeated assertion that reports of "large civilian casualties" are "unconfirmed"-- unless the paper wants to maintain that 52 women and children killed in an attempt to "liberate" their city are inconsequential. But the Times should know from its own reporting that the higher casualty figures are much more realistic.
On October 19, the Times reported: "There are no agreed figures for civilian deaths in Iraq over all since the war began in early 2003, but the best estimates, by private groups and independent news organizations, place the figure in the 10,000 to 15,000 range." It would seem obvious, then, that the bombing of a large civilian population in Iraq in what the Times called "the most intense aerial bombardment in Iraq since major combat ended" (4/30/04) would produce significant civilian casualties.
Since substantial numbers of civilians did in fact die in Fallujah in April, even if the exact number cannot be pinned down, readers might wonder if the Times' policy is that things that cannot be confirmed with numerical precision are essentially "unconfirmed." But this would be a double standard on the part of the Times; in its November 8 report, the paper noted: "The number of insurgents in the city is estimated at 3,000, although some guerrillas, terrorist fighters and their leaders escaped the city before the attack. American military officials estimated that of a usual population of 300,000, 70 percent to 90 percent of civilians had fled." Surely there is no way to determine exactly how many insurgents are in Fallujah, or how many civilians have fled. To be consistent, shouldn't the Times be reporting that accounts of civilians leaving the city are "unconfirmed"?
In its November 8 report, the Times matter-of-factly noted that U.S forces targeted a Fallujah hospital early in the campaign "because the American military believed that it was the source of rumors about heavy casualties." The Times added: "This time around, the American military
intends to fight its own information war, countering or squelching what has been one of the insurgents' most potent weapons." If part of that "information war" means convincing Americans that civilians are not victims of the Fallujah invasion, the Times has signed up on the side of the Pentagon.

Today the University of California's Berkeley Quantitative Methods Research Team released a statistical study - the sole method available to monitor the accuracy of e- voting - reporting irregularities associated with electronic voting machines may have awarded 130,000-260,000 or more excess votes to President George W.Bush in Florida in the 2004 presidential election. The study shows an unexplained discrepancy between votes for President Bush in counties where electronic voting machines were used versus counties using traditional voting methods - what the team says can be deemed a "smoke alarm." Discrepancies this large or larger rarely arise by chance - the probability is less than 0.1 percent. The research team formally disclosed results of the study at a press conference today at the UC Berkeley Survey Research Center, where they called on Florida voting officials to investigate.

I hear that voice, that god wacked voice in my head that makes me write this stuff ... I will type while it dictates and try not to argue so as not to confuse you and make you think I am really hearing voices, or have an earpiece. The voice is a dear godwack friend of mine, whom BTW is not talking to me currently, they tend to analog Atheist as having some sort of satanic core, so maybe it is me that isn’t talking, at this point neither of us seem to care.


When will you get it, you just will not believe anything you can’t see, touch or smell can you. God is in charge now, he didn’t create the damn machines and obviously can’t operate them very well yet either. Our people online that chase you and tell you about the path to hell you are on, have tried tutoring him but he has this temper thing going on now with those Muslims (forgive the voice knows not what it says) in the middle east over his blessed promised chosen ones, he was in a hurry and sent angels to all his followers the night before but the devil must have stood in there way or there would have been 130,000+ more to vote than really did.


Now don’t you think it would be nice to know what people voted, not unregistered angels from bush gate two (a door way to heaven I am sure, the path leads thru the Armageddon though:(

Best wishes to Howard Stern, gota get that XMradio.

Raise your hand if you know, what Fulsome means!

And how Colin Powell used the word to overtly disrobe our emperor, WBush

Fulsome means "offensively excessive," and when two people agree, it's always mutual. This otherwise good man is incorrigible. "offensively excessive"

Fulsome adj to a verb, I presume see also; Oily, Unctuous, Smarmy, Oleaginous.

Conserving actions from the ACLU

The ‘so declared’ pact God has made with the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of America to me is at the rim of the discrimination that the Christian Collusion cannot help to leave in their wake of the encompassing movements to pass mandates. As an illustration of Government sponsorship of a faith or creed but still religion, and still unconstitutional in it stands in battle with the axioms of democracy of our republic. Actions such as described in the article linked above are another example of government endorsement of discrimination to our most innocent of the citizenry of America, our children. The nature of most children even myself as a child was to revolt to a heavy hand of restraint of most kind, it seems to me to be innate to us humans as well as other mammals for reasons of self security, by leaving this aspect entire within a person one gives that person the security of self worth and self-esteem. Pointing out this human aspect, one I recognize and respect so much to hold as principal to my humanist being, recognizing this principal as respecting it in others a moral to hold as a good character . . . so here I choose to sound my revolt.

Pentagon to stop sponsoring scout troops
Washington Times

"The American Civil Liberties Union says a negotiated settlement has been reached to stop U.S. Defense Department sponsorship of Boy Scout troops. Previously, Pentagon policy has allowed Defense Department units to hold charters to hundreds of Boy Scout troops and Cub Scout packs. The scouts required government employees to exclude any youth from membership if they did not believe in God and for members of scout troops or packs to swear an oath of duty to God, the ACLU of Illinois said." (11/15/04)


Seeing another restraint or ultimatum these Dominionists include in their revolution siring mandates to turn our democracy to theocracy is faith-based charities taking the place of social responsibilities the government has held to insure human rights were indeed held to law, law will not be the case as in the human rights in the constitution (mans law) ultimatums and stipulations will surely be upheld by churches of different denominations and religions. For a child placed as a ward under the roof of a faith-based organization for their care will the child be submitted to a daily bombardment of interpreted scripture, even other than their own heritage would they be within their own family protection. There is history that we could call from to learn, in England for many years there were an unwed home for women which was found to be nothing but a slave labor camp for profit to the church that sponsored it. Plenty other historical examples to when a church or religious organization takes over duties that were before bound by law of human rights, those laws, mans law metamorphosed into God’s law. Is there an accurate code, list, or registration of these translations of God’s laws other than the ancient bible?
These thoughts touch on a subject I read about nearly each and every day, and it held my interest tight for years. I have yet a solution to straighten the curve in our progress taking us so far within our past. It could start with really teaching the Constitution and proper education of the history of building that document. That document held above all men, as if a god some might claim just to defy it. It surmounts reason and the truest of justice yet reached in humanity on earth, not claiming to come from the heavens it keeps our feet firmly planted in reason so as our mind clearly sees the justice of humanity it provides. If I were religious, I would probably be called a Constitutionalist non denomination Independent, or not.

Dissuade Disillusions

Paul Ames tells me 101 journalist have died this year. Still some have now hope for an Ohio recount, and yet illusions of moral victory still rebounds and echoes throughout and in the content I read that still leaves me alluded auras of illusion. Illusions you see but yet don't see clearly enough to even admit you have seen, like floating shadows across your field of vision, ghost, or maybe good impressionist of gods.
Battle lines have been drawn and crossed in mastering designs. In a mosque with broken glass shards and dirty soldier boot prints, insolence to such as faith. As worlds away faith battles with its own security and promises of freedom, calling their own self demise principled.
