Hell, no wonder I can’t freaking breath! Damned hole in the ozone layer plugged up my nostrils.

This is actually good news. I thought something was going wrong with my health.

I took a leak beside Jesse Jackson

Hi readers.  New Orleans, maybe 1987, somewhere in there.  The year Jesse Jackson ran for Prez.  I was there for the American Public Health Association Convention and Jesse [I figure we're close enough now so's I can call him Jesse] was speaking at the next session.  But right now there was a General Assembly and all that dreary nap-taking I’d slipped away from.

So there I was, standing in front of a urinal in the New Orleans Convention Center and two giant black guys step up behind me, tell me I’ve got to get out-the-restroom.  I scowl and tell them I’ll be gone in a sec, but trying to speed the process wouldn’t help.

One of them touched my arm and I explained, while still occupied below, I wasn’t looking for sex.  I mentioned it because a lot of attendees at the APHA that year were definitely looking for sex in the restrooms.  They were giving away rubbers on the Exhibit Area booths and people were running back and forth from the rubber exhibits to the restroom stalls to try them out.

The black guy in a suit I’d just explained about not looking for sex to paused a moment and seemed to debate what to do next when Jesse Jackson stepped up, patted him, grinned at me, and told him, “It’s all right.  I got to piss!”

From that time until this I’ve always considered myself something of an expert on racial relations.

Anyway, I just want to say, I think Jesse would have stood up better under scrutiny if he’d stayed the hell out of Ferguson, him and Al Sharpton, both.

Everyone else who doesn’t live there, also.

Fact is, this is going to run the whole course, due process is going to see the light of day.  It’s too big and too widespread for anyone to sweep it under the carpet.

Due process.  Which is the best anyone can hope for.  Nobody knows precisely what happened, nobody’s seen all the evidence, and no good will come from any of us trying to second guess it now.  It is no longer our affair.

You, and Jesse Jackson, and I, and everyone else probably don’t need to be trying the almost certainly guilty-as-hell cop on the Internet.  A jury is going to do that.  Plenty of admissible evidence will come forward and some sort of justice will be done, one-way-or-the-other.  It’s how America works.

And if they turn him loose even under national scrutiny the folks in Ferguson can hunt him down and lynch him.  It’s how things have been done throughout American history whenever the law didn’t properly atone for the sins where racial matters are involved.

The tail end of due process, more-or-less.

That way lies madness: Sandy Hook conspiracy hoax

Theater shooter actors linked to Sandy hook actors- Exposed As a Fraud

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read.

I first encountered crisis actors as a concept back in New Mexico in Emergency Management.  When we, or local governments would perform disaster exercises there’d always have to be victims, people to pretend to be crying bystanders, whatever.  Volunteers, mostly.

But we program managers with Emergency Management Planning and Coordination Bureau [EMPAC] attended a lot of conferences and watched a lot of disaster films.  And we often joked that the crying victims of hurricanes, tornado victims in front of destroyed trailer houses in the midwest, and earthquake victims in California all appeared to be the same people.  When we’d view the films one-right-after-another I swear they were identical!

I hadn’t thought about that in a long time.  But then I stumbled across a series of YouTube videos about Sandy Hook, about which I knew only fragments, and discovered there’s a host of people who believe the massacre in that school was a hoax.  And furthermore, they construct logical arguments based on apparently sound evidence.

After watching some of the videos it’s clear crisis actors and their use has become a lot more sophisticated and manipulative.  And that, by doing so, [provided it's not actually a hoax] they play directly into the hands of those who build the case supporting the hoax suppositions.

The problem with anything as pervasive as this is:  it leaves nothing intact.  Once a person accepts the premise a conspiracy of this size could exist, anything is possible, everything is quicksand.

What’s disturbing, or would be disturbing if I gave a damn, is the fact nobody’s bothering to answer the questions the hoax-believers are asking.  The claims they are making should be easy enough, incredibly simple to disprove.

I’m not referring to blanket-scoffing, ad hominin disclaimers.  The thing’s gone far enough so’s, “You must be crazy!” or “What have you been smoking?” aren’t sufficient.  Brushing aside legitimate holes in the official version of the story only lends itself to more conviction on the side of those teetering near belief.

Which lends strength to my kung fu approach to the puzzle:  I don’t give a damn.  I don’t dare give a damn.  And if I did dare give a damn I’d have to question my sanity.

Time Traveler President of the US in 2016

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a reead.

I began watching this stuff a couple of days ago when I experienced a setback in my physical situation and couldn’t do my daily exercize routines without undoing a lot else.  So to pass the time I began browsing through the YouTube pantheon of weirdness.

Interestingly, Andrew Basiago’s arrived amidst a forest of familiar trees.  He says the was trained for the Pegasus Project by Ed Danes, whom I’d read because of flirting with remote viewing a decade or more ago.  And Pegasus mightn’t have been headquartered at Socorro, New Mexico, where I lived from 1995 until 1999, but it had a presence there.  Back when during the late 1990s Mel King and I were attempting to build a time machine, reading about Montauk and anything else we could find about time travel.  Pegasus came up a fair amount.

I hadn’t thought about any of that for what?  Decades?  At least a good many years.  So I was surprised to find myself listening to this guy and watching videos of him talking about some ground I once covered as thoroughly as I felt able.

He says Ed Danes told him back in the 1970s he was going to be President, though maybe not immediately following his fellow Pegasus member, the guy in the White House now.  [Who was also told by Ed Danes at that same time, he would serve as President.  The White House guy now, we're told, was also a Pegasus operative.]

So, while I don’t vote, couldn’t care less who sits in the White House, and probably won’t live to see who wins the next Presidential election anyway, I find the entire subject interesting enough to occupy a few minutes of my diminishing sand from the top of the hourglass.

Good for some smiles and knowing I ain’t going to vote anyway it’s good to know there’s a candidate at least as unlikely as my own life has been.  He carries a heavy advantage in my view by not being Democrat, nor Republican, nor Independent.  That offsets almost anything else he isn’t.  Including sane, if he happens not to be.

And if, as he asserts, the guy in the White House now has traveled in time and has visited our colony on Mars, hell, it might explain a lot.

Somewhat mildly exciting in an abstract sort of way.

Tomato ice cubes

So. Hi readers.

I’ve told you in the past about being a low-sodium fanatic. I don’t want to ingest any more salt than comes with whatever I’m eating back when it was the next best thing to being alive. Eggs when they come out of the shell and hit the frying pan running. Or on the half-shell, boiled.

In the past I’ve explained how I blend onions and make ice cubes so’s to allow easy use for broths and blogs. I’ve told in loving detail how I do the same with jalapeno.

And now I’m telling you Jeanne’s sons had a bumper crop of tomatoes and I’ve blended all I could get my hands on, frozen them in ice cube trays after boiling them down. Now I’m telling you a large tomato doesn’t have a dozen milligrams of sodium.

Well hell, I also told you a few days ago my faith is eroding … showed you another viewpoint from Dr. Mercola, which might help mitigate my fanaticism. Once I’ve digested it, if I’m still alive.

But he didn’t say anything about tomato ice cubes. And damn I do love the idea of all the stuff I’m going to be able to do with them, 8.5 mg of sodium, or not.
Meanwhile:
Onion ice cubes, jalapeno ice cubes

Gun Hill Road and Orange is somethingorother Black

Hi readers.  Jeanne doesn’t watch movies much but someone told her I might enjoy some made-for-Netflix movie about women in a prison facility.  Which I figured what the hell, might as well try it.  Which I did.  I’ve been known to watch and enjoy a chick flick and if the chicks are all in prison it might still be interesting.

Orange Is the New Black

2013-2014TV-MASeason 2 Now Available A dozen Emmy Award nominations went to this acclaimed comedy drama series including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Lead Actress for star Taylor Schilling. A crime she committed in her youthful past sends Piper Chapman (Schilling) to a women’s prison, where she trades her comfortable New York life for one of unexpected camaraderie and conflict in an eccentric group of fellow inmates.

Fact is when I worked in Santa Fe with the Emergency Management Bureau we had some female prisoners working in our offices for a while, cleaning up and polishing our non body parts.  But they started stealing so much when nobody was looking it became too much a pain in the ass to have them around.

Then, in Grants, when I was working for the motel.  We had some female prisoners cleaning the rooms for a while.  But they began selling sexual favors to anyone who’d pay, began screwing the motel manager until he was too exhausted to allow them around anymore.  The regular female employees who usually filled his sexual needs began feeling neglected.  So Orange whatchallit got my attention briefly.

I skipped over all the lingering chickflickisms, the slow motion leading-up-to-sex scenes, the flashbacks of flashbacks of flashbacks.  The titillating leading-up-to lesbian stuff I also found I could skip past.

Which left approximately 10 minutes of viewing pleasure for this episode of Orange is somethingorother.

But Netflix, because I’d watched it, recommended Gun Hill Road.

Gun Hill Road 2011 R 86 minutes Enrique returns home from three years in prison to find his wife is a virtual stranger and his son is in the throes of a sexual identity crisis. More Info Starring: Esai Morales, Judy Reyes Director: Rashaad Ernesto Green

A decent sort of guy gets out of the slammer and finds his wife is on the rebound from an affair.  Handles it fairly well.  Gets a job.  Handles it less well when he discovers his eldest son is one of those other kinds of guys.  Wears sexy female attire and whatnot.

At that point I debated whether I wanted to watch any more of it, but while I was pondering the question the son began smooching with another character in the movie and feeling around, unzipping his trousers.

Soooooo.  I’m not anti-Semitic about that sort of thing.  Don’t even care if my brother marries one.  Or my sister, for that matter.

But that isn’t the same as saying I want to see a lot of details of what they do to one another working up to the other stuff they do to one another.

I’m old fashioned that way.
