Time To "Get Real" -

“Victory” Is What Defines The Beginning Of The Real Work To Be Done
by The Old Hippie, Because Otherwise, The Victory Would Be In Vain, And Wasted.

a. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
b. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
c. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor.

a. The condition of being free of restraints.
b. Liberty of the person from slavery, detention, or oppression.

But these two word's reality, as defined by our Constitutional Democracy's Bill of Rights, made George Bush's administration's job too difficult - So they set out to destroy the Bill of Rights, to re-define the very reality of the American reality - And to a point, they succeeded -

It Is These “Successes” That Defines What Must Be Corrected. . .

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}
Habeas Corpus - Gone - Even for an American citizen, via the Military Commissions Act.  [POV link]

All of the Bill of Rights, (except the 3rd Amendment, the forced quartering of the military within our homes,) purposely legislated away.

Trillions upon trillions of American taxpayer monies - Gone - The largest successful, (and allowed,) theft in the history of humankind.

There are more Americans imprisoned within corporate prisons, in raw numbers, and in percentage of the population, than in any other nation on the planet, now, and at any time in the written history of humankind.

The unforgivable allowing, and acceptance, of the torture, and killing, of innocent human beings, (the Pentagon openly admits, on the public record, that the large majority of the “prisoners,” upwards of 80%, were/are innocent of any crimes,) within our military prisons.

All of us know the torture was not the acts of a few “bad apples,” but rather a successful corruption of official policy from the top down.

Tax cuts for the wealthy, during “war time,” successfully enacted, (and allowed.)

Massive Corporate tax cuts, during a period of unprecedented criminal profiteering, and record corporate profits - Allowed - Even as the number of Americans in poverty rose for the 4th year in a row.

The “Iraq War” or the “War on Terrorism,” as the Attorney General points out, is not a declared war... “It was an authorization only to use military force,” by the Executive.  [Explanation link]

A very real total corruption of our nation's electoral process in 2000, 2002, and 2004, by criminally biased corporatists e-voting machines, that even after this past 2006 mid-term “mandate” election have not been fixed.

The almost destruction of the Balance of Powers.

The almost complete elimination of the Separation of Church and State.

The complete, (and insane,) corruption, by politicization for corporate profits, and opportunistic ideology, of all the sciences.

The ongoing consolidation of the control of the nation's media into the hands of six corporations, to the point that our nation's “free-press” has just been ranked the 53rd freest in the world - 53rd!
52 other nations, right now, have a freer press than we do.

PBS’s NOW: The Election Outcomes
  [ - via Crooks and Liars - ]
By: Nicole Belle @ 4:45 PM - PST


News headlines are heralding Democratic Congressional victories on Election Night, but the larger story of the 2006 mid-term elections transcends statistical winners and losers.  Since late summer, NOW has been focusing on crucial but underreported personal and political questions related to the election, such as: the performance of malfunctioning voting machines, the outcomes of deceptive ballot initiatives, the influence of religion in politics, the impact of immigration and minimum wage issues, the political role of the blogosphere, and the success rate of “clean” campaigners.  Tonight, [Nov. 10, 2006] NOW takes a hard look at the outcomes of these issues, as well as the individual people profoundly affected by them.

Also, NOW's David Brancaccio and editor-in-chief Joan Walsh place a magnifying glass on mid-term election outcomes to reveal what it means for America's future.

The NOW website tracked these outcomes, as well as others not included in the broadcast, and link to their original NOW investigations.

You have a great site! I'm going to include you in the next installment of A Hitchhiker's Guide To The Blogosphere. Unless you have an objection. In which case, I'll include you in the installment after that. 8-)

I saw numerous posts on which I thought about commenting. People don't necessarily appreciate that, though. And I don't want to "litter". Should you visit me and wish to comment, feel free. I'll follow your lead.

Well, the most important thing for our new majority to do first is to actually USE the subpeona power and launch a REAL independent investigation into 9/11.

One thing that struck me as odd in the days after 9/11 was Bush saying, "We will not tolerate conspiracy theories [regarding 9/11]."

Sure enough there have been some wacky conspiracy theories surrounding the events of that day.  The most far-fetched and patently ridiculous one that I've ever heard goes like this:  Nineteen hijackers who claimed to be devout Muslims, but yet were so un-Muslim as to be getting drunk all the time, doing cocaine, and frequenting strip clubs, decided to hijack four airliners, and fly them into buildings in the northeastern U.S., the area of the country that is the most thick with fighter bases.

After leaving a Koran on a barstool at a strip bar, after getting shitfaced drunk the night before.  Then writing a suicide note/inspirational letter that sounded like it was written by someone with next to no knowledge of Islam, they went to bed, and got up the next morning hung over, and carried out their devious plan.  Nevermind the fact that of the four "pilots" among them, there was not a one that could handle a Cessna or a Piper Cub, let alone fly a jumbo jet, and the one assigned the most difficult task of all, Hani Hanjour, was so laughably incompetent that he was the worst fake "pilot" of the bunch.  Nevermind the fact that they received very rudimentary flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, making them more likely to have been C.I.A. assets, than Islamic fundamentalist terrorists.

So on to the airports.  These "hijackers" somehow managed to board all four airliners with their tickets.  Yet not even ONE got his name on any of the flight manifests.  So they hijack all four airliners, and at this time passengers on United 93 start making a bunch of cell phone calls from 35,000 feet in the air, to tell people what was going on.  Nevermind the fact that cell phones wouldn't work very well above 4,000 feet, and wouldn't work at ALL above 8,000 feet.  But the conspiracy theorists won't let that fact get in the way of a good fantasy.  That is one of the little things you "aren't supposed to think about."  Nevermind that one of the callers called his mom, and said his first, and last name, more like he was reading from a list, than calling his own mom.

Anyway, when these airliners each deviated from their flight plan, and didn't respond to ground control, NORAD would any other time have followed standard operating procedure, (and did NOT have to be told by F.A.A. that there were hijackings, because they were watching the same events unfold on their own radar,) which means fighter jets would be scrambled from the nearest base where they were available on standby within a few minutes.  Just like every other time when airliners stray off course.  But of course on 9/11 this didn't happen, not even close.  Somehow these "hijackers" must have used magical powers to cause NORAD to stand down.  As ridiculous as this sounds because total inaction from the most high-tech, and professional Air Force, in the world would be necessary to carry out their tasks.  So on the most important day in its history the Air Force was totally worthless.  Then they had to make one of the airliners look like a smaller plane, because unknown to them the Naudet brothers had a videocamera to capture the only known footage of the North Tower crash - And this footage shows something that is not at all like a jumbo jet, but didn't have to bother with the South Tower jet disguising itself, because that was the one we were "supposed to see."

Anyway, as for the Pentagon, they had to have Hani Hanjour fly his airliner like it was a fighter plane, making a high G-force corkscrew turn that no real airliner can do, in making its descent to strike the Pentagon.  But these "hijackers" wanted to make sure Rumsfeld survived, so they went out of their way to hit the farthest point in the building from where Rumsfeld and the top brass are located.  And this worked out rather well for the military personnel in the Pentagon, since the side that was hit was the part that was under renovation at the time, with few military personnel present compared to construction workers.  Still more fortuitous for the Pentagon, the side that was hit had, just before 9/11, been structurally reinforced to prevent a large fire there from spreading elsewhere in the building.  Awful nice of them to pick that part to hit, huh?

Then... the airliner vaporized itself into nothing but tiny unidentifiable pieces no bigger than a fist.  Unlike the crash of a real airliner when you will be able to see at least some identifiable parts, like crumpled wings, broken tail section etc.  Why Hani Hanjour, the terrible pilot, flew that airliner so good that even though he hit the Pentagon on the ground floor, the engines didn't even drag the ground!!  Imagine that!!  Though the airliner vaporized itself on impact, it only made a tiny 16 foot hole in the building.  Amazing.

Meanwhile, though the planes hitting the Twin Towers caused fires small enough for the firefighters to be heard on their radios saying, "We just need 2 hoses and we can knock this fire down," attesting to the small size of it.  Somehow they must have used magical powers from beyond the grave to make this morph into a raging inferno, capable of making the steel on all forty-seven main support columns, (not to mention the over 100 smaller support columns,) soften and buckle, then all fail at once.  Hmm...  Then still more magic was used to make the building totally defy physics, as well as common sense, in having the uppermost floors pass through the remainder of the building as quickly, meaning as effortlessly, as falling through air.  A feat that without magic could only be done with explosives.  Then exactly 30 minutes later, the North Tower collapses in precisely the same freefall physics-defying manner.  Incredible.  Not to mention the fact that both collapsed at a uniform rate too, not slowing down, which also defies physics, because as the uppermost floors crash into, and through each successive floor beneath them, they would shed more and more energy each time, thus slowing itself down.  Common sense tells you this is not possible without either the hijackers' magical powers or explosives.

To emphasize their telekinetic prowess, later in the day they made a third building, WTC # 7, collapse also at freefall rate, though no plane or any major debris hit it.  Amazing guys these magical hijackers.  But we know it had to be "Muslim hijackers" the conspiracy theorist will tell you, because, (now don't laugh,) one of their passports was "found" a couple days later near Ground Zero, miraculously "surviving" the fire that we were told incinerated planes, passengers, and black boxes.  And it also "survived" the collapse of the building it was in.  When common sense tells you if that were true, then they should start making buildings, and airliners, out of heavy paper and plastic, so as to be "indestructable" like that magic passport.

The hijackers even used their magical powers to bring at least seven of their number back to life, to appear at american embassies, outraged at being blamed for 9/11!!  BBC reported on that, and it is still online.  Nevertheless, they also used magical powers to make the american government look like it was covering something up in the aftermath of this - What with the hasty removal of the steel debris, and having it driven to ports in trucks with GPS locators on them, to be shipped overseas to China, and India, to be melted down.  When common sense again tells you that this is paradoxical in that if the steel was so unimportant that they didn't bother saving some for analysis, but so important as to require GPS locators on the trucks, with one driver losing his job because he stopped to get lunch.

Hmm...  Further making themselves look guilty, the Bush administration steadfastly refused, for over a year, to allow a commission to investigate 9/11 to even be formed.  Only agreeing to it on the conditions that they get to dictate its scope, meaning it was based on the false pretense of the "official story" being true, with no other alternatives allowed to be considered.  Handpicked all its members, making sure the ones picked had vested interests in the truth remaining buried, and with Bush and Cheney only "testifying" together, only for an hour, behind closed doors, with their attorneys present, and with their "testimonies" not being recorded by tape, or even written down in notes. [and not under oath.]  Yes, this whole story smacks of the utmost idiocy, and fantastic far-fetched lying, but it is amazingly enough what some people believe.  Even now, five years later, the provably false fairy tale of the "nineteen hijackers" is heard repeated again, and again, and is accepted without question by so many Americans.  Which is itself a testament to the innate psychological cowardice of the American sheeple.  I mean people, and their abject willingness to believe something, ANYTHING, no matter how ridiculous, in order to avoid facing a scary uncomfortable truth.  Time to wake up America.
