Friday Foilhat Foray...
Author: BobR    Date: 10/26/2007 12:13:17

Okay folks, strap on your tinfoil hat - it's going to be a bumpy ride...

It seems that every day the news is more jaw-dropping than the previous day's... the Administration's gall increases, and our country seems to slip further and further into chaos. With natural disasters of Biblical proportions, a missing nuke, and members of an Administration looking at a cutoff date of 14 months when they have to vacate the Halls Of Power and their crimes may finally be brought to light, one has to wonder what sort of contingency plans are already in the works. It would only require six easy steps to take us from Democracy to Dictatorship, and none of them are far-fetched:

1) Major event ("natural" or terrorist)
2) Bush taken out of office
3) Cheney assumes the Presidency
4) Blackwater brought in surreptitiously
5) Marshall Law enacted, enforced by Blackwater
6) Elections suspended, complete coup d'etat

So let's break this down step-by-step...

1) Major Event: We've already got 1 million evacuees in CA (including from the town of Patrero which has been completely destroyed, where Blackwater wanted to build a base), droughts throughout the southeast (including less than 3 months of water left in Atlanta), NOLA still not recovered... The electrical grid is vulnerable, and oil prices are through the roof. A Blackwater unit here, a Blackwater unit there...

Of course - there's also that missing nuke... You know, that Air Force 4 hr flight that should have taken only 2 hrs and left with 6 nukes but landed with only 5? Where is that going to end up? Iran?... An American city?...

2) Bush taken out of office: Everyone knows that Cheney is the one who's connected to the under-the-radar power in D.C... When they are ready to take over, Bush will have served his purpose and will be in the way. His demise could be blamed on terrorists, or the 20-year curse, but he won't have the stones necessary, and will have to go for their plans to work. I'm going to bet on "terrorist attack"

3) Cheney assumes the Presidency: With Bush gone, Cheney will step up. He will already have someone ready to appoint as vice. It will not be someone picked to make America happy; it will be one of his insiders.

4,5) Blackwater brought in surreptitiously, Marshall Law enacted, enforced by Blackwater: The regular army would probably blanch at the things that Cheney wants to do, so only the lower-ranking regulars - those that take orders - will be utilized, and just for the mundane. Blackwater, on the other hand, will become the "secret police", and will do all the nasty dirty work required to silence opposition.

6) Elections suspended, complete coup d'etat: At some point, the whole facade of "Marshall Law" for the protection of the public will be dropped. Congress and the SCOTUS will be closed. Cheney and his pacemaker will rule for a short period and then be taken out by one of his own that wants to take his place. It will spiral down from there.

Note that 2,3,4 &5 could happen in any order...

The big issue here isn't would they do it, it's that they could do it so easily. Of course - they could keep going the way they have the last 6 years (under the radar), but knowing that a Democrat will win the presidency in 2008, they may be inclined to panic. Let's all hope they don't.

So - it's Friday and the weekend is nigh. Don't forget to take off that foil hat before you head out for the Halloween parties this weekend... unless it's going to be part of your costume.

Those right-wing tools are extra toolie.



I think it is important not only to teach the values expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution but when this country has failed to live up to its values and if it makes people aware that the Bush Crime family has pissed on these values so be it.

Of course. That's the insidious part of us America-haters we actually want the country to live up to the values that it has proclaimed. Aren't we quaint?

TRMS:



listening to last night, with Condi going on and on about a "lacuna".



I had to look it up:





Main Entry:

la·cu·na Listen to the pronunciation of lacuna

Pronunciation:

\lə-ˈkü-nə, -ˈkyü-\

Function:

noun

Inflected Form(s):

plural la·cu·nae Listen to the pronunciation of lacunae \-ˈkyü-(ˌ)nē, -ˈkü-ˌnī\ also la·cu·nas Listen to the pronunciation of lacunas \-ˈkü-nəz, -ˈkyü-\

Etymology:

Latin, pool, pit, gap — more at lagoon

Date:

1652



1: a blank space or a missing part : gap ; also : deficiency 1 2: a small cavity, pit, or discontinuity in an anatomical structure

— la·cu·nar Listen to the pronunciation of lacunar \-ˈkü-nər, -ˈkyü-\ also la·cu·nate Listen to the pronunciation of lacunate \lə-ˈkü-nət, -ˈkyü-, -ˌnāt; ˈla-kyə-ˌnāt\ adjective





So, without thinking about it too much, I think this is probably the origin of a vulgar slang term for an anatomical area...rhymes with a baseball term for a soft infield hit, possibly what a football team might do on fourth and long.

The day is young, BTW.



Tonight is the annual Pack 250 pumpkin carve and Halloween party...we'll be out in the woods until rather late this evening. (We rent the Great Hall at the Cedar Hill Girl Scout Camp in this city for the affair.) It's supposed to rain, so I don't know if we'll get in our usual night hike.

If it pours here tonight, it will not be a fun drive home. At least it will mean no nightime construction on the SSP forcing me to take the back roads home.

From my truthout e-mail. It looks like Blackwater is going on a PR offensive;



This week, Condoleezza Rice finally agreed to appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and acknowledged that there was a "hole" in U.S. law that allowed Blackwater USA and other mercenary firms to escape legal jeopardy for any crimes committed in Iraq. Meanwhile, the New York Times reports that Blackwater's launched an all-out PR push, complete with the kind of fake grass-roots campaign that companies can now purchase on the open market. The Times reported that a mass e-mail was sent this week saying that the Blackwater "family" was "working vigorously to defend American interests." "In this tumultuous political climate," the mercenary company "has taken center stage, our services and ethics aggressively challenged with misinformation and fabrications," the e-mail said. "While we can't ask that each supporter do everything, Blackwater asks that everyone does something. Contact your lawmakers and tell them to stand by the truth."[/unquote]



Ane how many righties will be spinning that pro-Blackwater bullshit? :evil:

Missed the old bouncerino :kick: But, I was at the gym



While I was in the whirlpool, I was talking to an older gent, part of the "Greatest Generation" who was railing about the Democrats complaining about the three thousand troop deployed in Iraq! I did correct him with the correct total of about 150,000 more than he thought. He was amazed and surprised that we had that many soldiers currently serving there.

:rubs hands with glee: There have been four so far.



Season 1 The story of the Barksdale crew and the cops who went after him and his boys. More precisely it is about how you react to the institutions you serve when they fail you. Specifically, D'Angelo Barksdale.

Season 2 The story of the Nick Sobatka and his dwindling band of long shoremen who have their backs against the wall and what they are willing and not willing to do revive the Bawler docks, hon. There are also cops on his ass because Stan Valcheck the commander of the South Eastern District is a sawed off polack asshole.

Season 3. The story of reformers and what happens to them. Some of them, like Stringer Bell end up shot dead in a building they own purchased with money laundered from dope dealing. Others like Tommy Carcetti end up running for mayor of Bawlmer.

Season 4. The story of the sorry assed education system in a major post industrial city. Where do drug dealers come from, how are they socialized into that lifestyle? It is all answered here.



As my brother put it. Seasons 1 & 3 are cops and robbers, seasons 2 & 4 are where those cops and robbers come from.

The Game Is To Be Sold

Vial of crack? $10. BBQ with Bubs? Priceless.



When characters on 'The Wire' talk about "fundraising," it might be a good time to duck and cover. Instead, philanthropists flocked to 'A Night at The Wire' to tour the show's set, meet the cast and get their hands on unique memorabilia.



An auction to benefit the Ella Thompson Fund — honoring the Baltimore woman who spent her life supporting the city's children after losing her own daughter to murder — included everything from a speaking role on the show (which went for $11k) to autographed scripts and set pieces. A few highlights: Dinner with McNulty; signs, buttons and bumper stickers from Carcetti's mayoral campaign; a stickup by Chris and Snoop for a victim of your choice; Omar's duster and prison shank ... Though the live event has ended, an online auction continues at the Ella Fund web site. (photo: Lisa Lake/FilmMagic.com)
