Masters of War





Just some pictures of the food we are eating from the backyard. Feels good to be at least somewhat successful swimming against the tide...
freeacre

As usual, the conversation has been really good, but I feel compelled to continue it with a new post so that the comments don’t go to a crazy level. Actually, I want to start with a comment p put up from the last batch, because it exemplifies one of the zillion aspects of how totally corrupt and self-serving the parasitic Overlords have become. The continuing wars in the Middle East or wherever the latest trumped up justification leads is just beyond belief. Here’s p’s comment from yesterday”

today's pop quiz allows for 3 guesses and the first two don't count. what pri contractor to the military is this...

1) They were in charge of clean water, but most of the water sources were found to have no treatment in them at all, and when tested were found to be chock full of pathogens and parasites

2) They were in charge of food, but refused to allow 24-hr. access to meals (not cost-effective), so since soldiers' mealtimes were all known, that's when mess halls and camps were attacked

3) They were in charge of laundry (getting $99/bag for it), but soldiers said their clothes came back dirtier than they went out, and they were forbidden to wash out their own clothes in the sink

4) They were in charge of soft drinks, which were given to the soldiers for free, but the camps were charged $46/6-pack to purchase them, yet the drinks were made locally in the desert, thus the transportation cost was almost nothing

5) 'Cost Plus' payment basis meant they are given a percentage of everything they spent; therefore they had no incentive to save money

6) Company orientation meetings were in the most lavish seaside hotels in Kuwait,w/unlimited access to sea and sports vehicles, and employees were paid by the hour to use them. Ordinary employees living in the company compound were provided everything, including deluxe living arrangements, 5-star meals catered in every day, and were each (including secretaries) given a top of the line ford or chevy truck fully loaded, while those higher up were given hummers and cadilac escalades.....for the desert... One former employer saw a copy of the 3-yr. lease for an employee's SUV--it was $7,000/mo. (totalling roughly $250,000 for the vehicle, over a 3-year period, that anyone in america could purchase for around $45,000 ... american taxpayers paying the difference...)

7) When the wrong equipment was delivered (frequently), it was left in its packaging, and then eventually the warehouse was set on fire and everything declared a loss and insurance collected.

8) Brand new (military, not civilian) trucks costing $75,000-$100,000 each were shipped w/out little things like oil filters, which of course quickly trashed the trucks and required purchase of new ones...In fact, regulations required that the soldiers blow up defective trucks and destroy them, so nothing was ever salvaged from these vehicles....

its said there's a right place in U for everything that exists. i wish these fucks god speed on their journey... p
The disgusting thing is that after the malfeasance of KBR and Halliburton has been exposed on television, Youtube, and in congressional hearings, these war profiteers continue to be granted additional contracts! The troops continue to get used for every sleazy contrivance, putting their lives and health at risk, while these moral lepers haul in the Big Bucks. It goes on and on. Throughout the Republican and now the Democratic administrations, it hasn’t mattered.
The moral turpitude of the military/industrial /banking cartel just defies even my penchant for ridicule and abuse. All the while hypocritical lip-service is given as to how much this country cares for its troops. I could gag.
Now, new feelers and hints are slipped into our consciousness every day. Pakistan, Somalia, Iran, Lebanon…. Who’s next? Drones operated like video games from remote bases in the states drop bombs on wedding parties and reporters. And who is called to task? The guy who “leaked” the information. He gets sentenced to fifteen years. Anybody with more than Corn Flakes stuffed into his cranium knows that the wrong people are going to jail.
“War props up the economy,” is it said. Oh, really? Just who’s economy? Sixty-six percent of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans. For the first time in U.S. history, banks own a greater share of residential housing net worth in the United States than all individual Americans put together. The bottom 50 percent of income earners in the United States now collectively own less than 1 percent of the nation’s wealth. Wars are not adding any money to my economy. …or yours, either, unless you are a Federal worker, maybe. The average Federal worker now earns 60% more than the average worker in the private sector(stats from Survival Acres). These are the minions who facilitate the atrocities that the Rulers decree. Add in the media talking heads, the sports stars, and the Hollywood glitteroti who distract us from the daily grind.
The rest of us are in the “service economy.” Read that “we are their servants.”
I remember when we were not servants. I was reminded last night when we watched a DVD I picked up at the video section of our local grocery store. It was entitled, “The Chicago 10.” What a blast from the past. It was a surprisingly good and creative portrayal of the anti-Vietnam War era. Great footage of the thousands of protesters and leaders of the anti-war, pro-peace movement. The demonstrations in Chicago during the Democratic Convention and the subsequent trial of the 8 and their lawyers. I would say that it was right about the time that they all were convicted and sentenced to do time, that the Overlords decided to really destroy our freedom and put us on our knees.
It’s forty years later, and they’ve pretty much got it all locked up. Our only hope is that their success will be their undoing. Now that they’ve killed so many and planted the seeds of revenge into millions, poisoned the land, sea, and air, stuptified the masses, made most of us sick, depleted the oceans, wasted the water, and fucked up the climate – are they happy now?
There’s an Italian scientist who reports that he is finding that the Gulf Stream has stopped, due to the changed viscosity of the water from the oil and dispersants in the Gulf. If that’s the case, they’re going to have to fit Buckingham Palace with some serious insulation as the Ice Age returns to the British Isles. And, if the electrical grid goes down due to the increased electromagnetism of the sun, the Wizards of Wallstreet are going to be in a world of hurt when all their electronic money blinks out. Poof! I don’t think anybody’s gonna want to carry their bags anymore.
Contradictory reports on just about everything continue to drive me crazy. Happy talk on the lamestream about how the oil is disappearing from the Gulf, the economy is “recovering,” the well has been permanently capped, the stock market is strong, etc, flies in the face of the unemployment figures, the real estate being held in reserve by the banks, the corexit in the Gulf waters, the near bankruptcy of many nations (including ours), and being on the verge of WWIII.
I guess the most serious outrage, though, is the corruption of the war mongers and their minions. The damage that they are doing to our troops, our nation, the poor people we go to war against and the planet in general are just beyond words. Just keep this all in mind in the next election… third parties or “none of the above” is going to be my option. Where is Ross Perot when we need him?

The corruption and malfeasance is almost more than the human mind can encompass. But how do we end up with Ross Perot?

As Jerry Brown famously remarked during that long-ago campaign, "There's no such thing as a billionaire populist".

To my mind, the most memorable thing Ross Perot did was to warn that "that sucking sound is the sound of American jobs moving to other countries" (or something like that). I liked his rebellious stance on a lot of things, and admit that his choice of VP was just plain pathetic. But, at least he was an alternative to both the Republicans and Democrats. As I recall, he was finally shut up by threats to his daughters. I admit that I am no authority on Ross Perot. I just liked the cranky old guy - even if he was rich. I just don't trust anybody now. Even Grayson just rolled over on Net Neutrality.

Nice to know someone else shares my point of view! I’m so disgusted to see everybody, including educated family members of mine capitulating to support of our warmongering state. I guess that’s what happens when the end is nigh, when the empire reaches its point of maximum corruption; everyone wants a piece of the action before it all crumbles, and crumble it will if for no other reason than the waste and fraud you describe is clearly unsustainable. But it will crumble for other reasons too, most notably because of a complete lack of morals or scruples, without which no society can endure very long.

In the U.S. the rule of law is gone; morals and integrity are gone; the work ethic is gone; self-sufficiency is gone; worthwhile education is gone; creativity and innovation are gone. Can the end be far off?

Frankly I am amazed too, it must be Freeacre’s journalistic training. I have been sitting on half a dozen subjects for ages and can’t get started and here is Fa who just knocks out a corker like it is nothing at all. Impressed hardly does it justice.

Be that as it may and dealing with the subject, p has only scratched the surface. As if this wasn’t already too much there is more. American citizens of good intent have been duped into going to Iraq to help the war effort and then being deliberately taken advantage of. Air conditioning and cool technicians have responded to advertisements for their services and when they have gone there they have been required to fix military trucks which they are not trained to do. This is deliberate so that the trucks will not be fixed and new ones minus oil filters will have to be ordered and also Hal / KRB will receive a kickback on their salary.

Worst of all civilian drivers have been required to take convoys from here to there through war zones when there are no goods to transport just so Hal / KRB can claim the mileage for doing it. This has resulted in civilian deaths with resulting anger from the families back home.

See the extent of the problem here in this video, Iraq for Sale.

Saturday morning blues...I'm so disgusted with conglomerations like KBR, (Kellog, Brown & Root of all evil) deciding how messed up they want to make our world etc. etc. any time they please!

And the prospect of more and yet another war, particularly with Iran. Are the worldly corporate kings really so dumb ass blind stupid?

FA, I wrote a pissy poem called:
"Ill-Israeli Leaders Be Damned"

Hi Guys, I just wandered in after switching the PC off for a week, great post! I realised the world went on collapsing just fine without me :¬)

To cut a long story short, our broody hen was sat on 14 eggs, 13 hatched! I'm finding myself in there every spare minute watching new life finding it's way in the world, fascinating stuff! we always kept ex battery hens, so never had chicks before ;)

Much better than documenting collapse for the spirits :)

Anybody else notice that rense.com is getting more and more filled with anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, anti-gay, anti-feminist, paranoid garbage lately? Shit, I may as well be reading a KKK site for all the hate spewing bullshit going on there. Henry Makow, for instance, makes Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh sound liberal in comparison.
I'm all for criticizing policy that goes against the citizenry in favor of corporate greed, but not sleazy ethnic slurs and white male supremest rhetoric. Fuck that.

mrs p said...

fa, I have to whole-heartedly agree with you. We don't tolerate bashing any group for their way of life, skin color etc. Military included. Some we know are in the military. How do you convice them they are being mislead and used. I went to rense.com once and it turn me off big time. I thought it was base and lowdown. Those emotional buttons they like to push get attention and hot air but accompish nothing 'cept pusing us all backwards and regressing. Collectively channeling hate-energy towards a particular group only makes them stronger. mrs p

Anyone who would vote for a 3d party at this critical point is simply digging his own grave. Throw anyone who supports the current policies out.

murph said...

Mrs P

Unfortunately, division does benefit some people, they are only a 1%-5% of the population though. Ideologues have been so successful in creating these divisions that I suspect we can never get even a majority to support anything, much less a unanimous agreement.

Chess,

How do you tell if a person that declares he doesn't support the current policies is not lying to you? Didn't Obama make a call to arms on that? And, even if we put in place those that declare they don't support the present policies, can they stand up to the huge money incentive to give in just a little bit? People are being assassinated all the time for bucking the system.

You think we're going to make it to the next election, fa?
The way the war party, the media, bloody israel and the Christain Taliban are foaming at the mouth in attacking Iran or NKorea or -anybody, we'll be lucky to be alive in November. But, if there is an election, I plan on voting for my favorite candidate, Mike Hunt. Or maybe Harry Knuckles or, or, -hell, I might even put my own name down on the ballot. I figure voting for me or one of my candidates does about as much good as voting for some dipshit, asswipe who's lying to me about everything he or she has done and is going to do. I KNOW what they're going to do when they get elected. They're going screw me over every which way they can.

Oh, hey, did you hear Matt Simmons is dead? The MSM says it was a heart attack or drowning or... Right. He was wacked-out by BP or Xe.

We are so totally doomed.

Anybody hearing talk of this?

"The Gulf Stream importance in the global climate themoregulation processes is well assessed. The latest real time satellite (Jason, Topex/Poseidon, Geosat Follow-On, ERS-2, Envisat) data maps of May-June 2010 processed by CCAR (Dolorado Center for Astrodynamics Research), checked at Frascati Laboratories by the means of the SHT congruent calculus and compared with past years data, show for the first time a direct evidence of the rapid breaking of the Loop Current, a warm ocean current, crucial part of the Gulf Stream. As displayed by both by the sea surface maps and the sea surface height maps, the Loop Current broke down for the first time around May 18th and generated a clock wise eddy, which is still active. As of today the situation has deteriorated up to the point in which the eddy has detached itself completely from the main stream therefore destroying completely the Loop Current.

Since comparative analysis with past satellite data until May 2010 didn't show relevant anomalies, it might be therefore plausible to correlate the breaking of the Loop Current with the biochemical and physical action of the BP Oil Spill on the Gulf Stream.

It is reasonable to foresee the threat that the breaking of a crucial warm stream as the Loop Current may generate a chain reaction of unpredictable critical phenomena and instabilities due to strong non linearities which may have serious consequences on the dynamics of the Gulf Stream thermoregulation activity of the Global Climate."

Shit, Randy, I didn't think we'd make it to the LAST election! Who the fuck knows?

It's shocking that Matthew Simmons is dead. He's been such a big part of the oil depletion truth movement for so long. He was probably right about a lot of it, but it does appear that the oil gusher has been stopped somehow at least. Maybe the strain of all these events just did him in. I dunno. Sure do wish him well.

I'm with you on Mak-Tow.

Hey, what happened to the comment I left yesterday? Apparently it disappeared into the nether-world that is Blogger.

Great rant, fa. I thought you didn't have anything to say?

Poor Matt Simmons. RIP. I don't think he was offed. The last few times I saw him on tv he looked like he was about to blow a gasket. I think it was the strain.

We are STILL under a heat advisory. This is ridiculous. Granted, the concrete heat island we live in is also in a valley, but still.

An Italian scientist, working with Nasa and Noaa data, is claiming the Loop current in the Gulf has ceased motion, and that this, in turn, has had an effect of temperatures in the North Atlantic. I posted this link last night, but it disappeared. Here it is again:

Another location for the same story is a radio interview Kerry Cassidy did with Dr. Bill Deagle on her Project Camelot radio. That url is:

As posted above, 56kCanadian has posted a video showing conclusive evidence of two wells having been drilled by BP. Not one. According to documentation obtained from the Minerals Management Service, both wells, A and B, are clearly described and located.

Subsequent ROV footage shows numbers pertaining to well A, which was abandoned due to problems, when we're being told we are looking at well B.

Question is, was the major eruption stopped or not?

Conveniently, the number one peak oil advocate with industry experience and balls to tell the truth is dead.

More videos pour into youtube showing dead and dying plants from the mid-section of America. Even ph tests showing acidic rain and colored substances in rain gauges.

It's all getting too much to contemplate. I'm gonna go pick rock.

murph, so true re division. That 1 to 5% has become so artful at it not only have they managed to divide the country but also families & friends like a psychological plauge. Unreal how something based on a bunch of Rove-ick style hoo-haw nonsense could be so powerful. What eager ears are hungry for the emotional politics of fear.

There has been some intersting theory discussed on MSNBC, (Racheal Maddow show) regarding the data showing throughout America's history, during the depression and other hard times, where ousting and deporting people of a different colour or who were different became a knee jerk reaction. Perhaps the "division' is more prevelent during hard times and easier to sell. mrs p

Don't know what happened to yours and Rockpickers comments. Maybe a glitch from the Sun - or more weirdness from Blogspot, or mutant fascist nanoids.

Dave Eriqat said...

The minute I heard about Simmons’ death my conspiracy meter shot off the scale. He may well have died from natural causes, but there seems to be a spate of deaths and “takedowns” of high profile truth-tellers all of a sudden, perhaps as a precursor to something big, like a new war front in the Middle East. Besides Simmons, Christopher Story died three weeks ago, Edgar Steele was taken down by a preposterous criminal charge that he attempted to arrange the murder of his wife, and then there is this plane crash involving Ted Stevens and an “ex-NASA chief.” Although Stevens is a consummate insider, was the “ex-NASA” guy perhaps a target, assuming the crash was not accidental? Perhaps I’ve become so cynical that I look for patterns where none exist, but I can’t help but sense that some of these are related.

I think that Mike Ruppert sums up the death (and life) of Matthew Simmons very sensitively. His essay can be read on his site, Collapse Net and also Carolyn Baker's - which is full of good stuff.

I'm going to take Ruppert's advise and go out and pick some vegetables and blanch and freeze them for winter in honor of Simmons. If it hadn't of been for him (and Ruppert), we'd have never gotten where we are.

We need to keep on keepin' on.

The two party system of governance in America has degenerated to a turd screaming at itself in the mirror!

The Liberals want everybody to have health care, clean food, clean water, and recycled toilet paper! unfortunately they also want to install all sorts of "Nanny State" laws and take all of our guns away! FUCK THAT!!!

The Conservatives want to cut the taxes on the rich, raise them on the poor, give Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Social Services, and Military Procurement to their criminal friends on Wall Street! They also want to force your children to recite Christian prayers in school and turn the country into a christian version of Iran! FUCK THAT!!!

The Libertarians don't know what they want to do, but next week it will be something else! They will send out emails to the faithful explaining what the new platform will be which will turn its back on 75% of the old platform, and rise up in screaming opposition to the other 25%! FUCK THAT!!!

The Tea Party don't know who they are, what they are, where they are, or what they're doing. They ride to Washington on rented buses to scream at everything in general, and nothing in particular. They want all the fruits of government, they just don't want to pay for it! They want to take EIC away from all the families out there, but it will never happen because the minute they try, the people will rise up in fury, drag them and their silly hats out into the street and beat them to death with outgrown baby strollers! FUCK THAT!!!

I don't know much about the Green Party and neither does anyone else! That is one of the main problem with the Green Party! The other is Ralph Nader, the man who leads the Green Party! This poor broken man is the saddest looking human being on the planet! He looks like his mother shot his dog right before she stepped in front of a bus driven by his father, and he wants us all to follow him! FUCK THAT!!!

The Ross Perot Party hasn't been doing much lately, as Ross Perot was the only candidate who actually admitted to being crazy, and took great pride in it! We as Americans were no where near ready for that much truth in Government! Ross Perot also said both parties were full of idiots which was also more truth than Americas was ready for! Ross Perot's Party joined portions of Democratic policy, and portions of Republican policy together, in so doing, melding the Democrat's Donkey with the Republican's Elephant. The result was a jackass with big ears, which is a pretty accurate description of Ross Perot! FUCK THAT!!!

So there are your choices! Pick one! All tigers, no ladies, no do-overs! We have met the candidates and we are FUCKED!!!!

The two party system of governance in America has degenerated to a turd screaming at itself in the mirror!

The Liberals want everybody to have health care, clean food, clean water, and recycled toilet paper! unfortunately they also want to install all sorts of "Nanny State" laws and take all of our guns away! FUCK THAT!!!

The Conservatives want to cut the taxes on the rich, raise them on the poor, give Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Social Services, and Military Procurement to their criminal friends on Wall Street! They also want to force your children to recite Christian prayers in school and turn the country into a christian version of Iran! FUCK THAT!!!

The Libertarians don't know what they want to do, but next week it will be something else! They will send out emails to the faithful explaining what the new platform will be which will turn its back on 75% of the old platform, and rise up in screaming opposition to the other 25%! FUCK THAT!!!

The Tea Party don't know who they are, what they are, where they are, or what they're doing. They ride to Washington on rented buses to scream at everything in general, and nothing in particular. They want all the fruits of government, they just don't want to pay for it! They want to take EIC away from all the families out there, but it will never happen because the minute they try, the people will rise up in fury, drag them and their silly hats out into the street and beat them to death with outgrown baby strollers! FUCK THAT!!!

I don't know much about the Green Party and neither does anyone else! That is one of the main problem with the Green Party! The other is Ralph Nader, the man who leads the Green Party! This poor broken man is the saddest looking human being on the planet! He looks like his mother shot his dog right before she stepped in front of a bus driven by his father, and he wants us all to follow him! FUCK THAT!!!

The Ross Perot Party hasn't been doing much lately, as Ross Perot was the only candidate who actually admitted to being crazy, and took great pride in it! We as Americans were no where near ready for that much truth in Government! Ross Perot also said both parties were full of idiots which was also more truth than Americas was ready for! Ross Perot's Party joined portions of Democratic policy, and portions of Republican policy together, in so doing, melding the Democrat's Donkey with the Republican's Elephant. The result was a jackass with big ears, which is a pretty accurate description of Ross Perot! FUCK THAT!!!

I have no earthly idea what the fuck happened to my above post! Google gave me an error massage that it was too long, and to resend it in a shorter form, which I did. It obviously went snake shit, and did what you see above. I don't know why!

Sorry about the multiple post, it wasn't my idea! Maybe somebody's office pet at Google got into a fight with, or started having sex with another office pet at Google, and this is the result!

I can also surmise that perhaps half the good office staff at Google are fighting, or having sex with the other half! Or perhaps they are all in bed with Verizon which all the emails I get from Net Neutrality are screaming about. They might be having a lot of fun there, and that might have led to the multiple posts!

So there you have it, it's not my fault! It's all Google's fault! People and animals of all kinds are over there fighting and having sex! Obviously the quality of their work has suffered!

P., Political satire in and of itself is redundant! Officially redundant! There is nothing I can possibly come up with that is stranger than the truth!

It used to be so simple during the Bush Administration! president Pork Pie stepped in front of a microphone, and my heart sang and my fingers twitched knowing that rich fodder was soon to be mine! One source, one message, no problem! Now it flies at me like bats leaving a cave at sundown! So many choices, and tomorrow so many more! I would have to write 20,000 words a day just to hit all the bases!

I would LOVE to be a Doctor for Congress! It would be the easiest work I ever did! They have no heart, no balls, no brains, no guts, and their heads and asses interchange!

What do you suppose East Anglia and the IPCC will have to say about this?

http://yowusa.com/earth/2010/earth-0810-01a/1.shtml

Somebody official will have to say something, yea or nay, pretty soon, I think, as this goes viral.

And it's not like a plane wreck, where the black boxes are held and altered until the 'official' story is contrived, and then disseminated by a willing and clueless media. Sooner or later, real people are going to notice real substantive changes in the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic current, if this is true. No way to spin that.

Rockpicker, Every, and I mean EVERY modern weather forecasting tool in use today was first used, perfected, and in some cases invented by The United States Navy. Why? Simple! the Navy sends ships out to sea, and they have to know what the sea is going to do to those ships! Every port in the United States has a weather station operated by The United States Coast Guard, and The Coast Guard is under The Department of The Navy. The Navy will not, and cannot, under Maritime Law, falsify, any weather report or any report concerning any ocean current, temperature, or any condition likely to change any weather pattern on the High Sea. To do otherwise would endanger shipping, and leave the US Navy open to Civil Action concerning losses this shipping might incur. Needless to say, I'm not surprised that it was The Navy who saved the day, and the data in this case.

As far as the Gulf Loop stalling goes, it could mean some really REALLY bad news! bad news as in another ice Age, and the refilling of the inland sea which covered most of the Midwest. It will, of course restart, as that ocean currents follow a certain prescribed system as to inversion of temperature and other dynamics. The question is how long will it take to restart, and what will the result of this stalling and starting be? is this stall responsible for the freakish weather we are seeing all over the world? It is 95 degrees Fahrenheit in the mountains of North Carolina. needless to say that is pretty unusual! Will these record highs be replaced with record lows this winter? I don't know, and those who do are keeping that information to themselves!

rockpicker: I read the Dr. Gianluigi Zangari paper a couple of weeks back when collapsenet posted a link to the headline, I could not access the same pictures used in the paper (satellite SST's are publicly available) so I posted a request on WUWT for links to the data. Anthony came back with - don't waste your time on this nonsense!

So, not to be perturbed, I spent some time flicking through the SST satellite maps for the last few weeks, seems the gulf stream is as active as ever. Interesting watching the La Nina developing across the Pacific.

See the maps [url=http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NCEP/.EMC/.CMB/.GLOBAL/.Reyn_SmithOIv2/.weekly/.ssta/figviewer.html?my.help=&map.T.plotvalue=1-7+Aug+2010&map.Y.units=degree_north&map.Y.plotlast=90N&map.url=X+Y+fig-+colors+land+-fig&map.domain=+{+%2FT+2455406+plotvalue+}&map.domainparam=+%2Fplotaxislength+432+psdef+%2Fplotborder+72+psdef+%2FXOVY+null+psdef&map.zoom=Zoom&map.Y.plotfirst=90S&map.X.plotfirst=0.0&map.X.units=degree_east&map.X.modulus=360&map.X.plotlast=0.0&map.ssta.plotfirst=-4.2&map.ssta.units=degree_Celsius&map.ssta.plotlast=4.2&map.newurl.grid0=X&map.newurl.grid1=Y&map.newurl.land=draw+land&map.newurl.plot=colors&map.plotaxislength=432&map.plotborder=72&map.fnt=Helvetica&map.fntsze=12&map.color_smoothing=1&map.XOVY=auto&map.iftime=25&map.mftime=25&map.fftime=200]here[/url] change the dates n stuff in diff windows and flick between them to kind of animate it, check out all the warm water round greenland still heading for the sink, looks very active to me.

There's enough doom on the horizon to worry about, the gulf stream isn't one of them ;¬)

From Belgium

Here is a mini update on the Belgian Politic, if you like an addendum to the post I did which seems like ancient history now. You may remember that we have a proportional representation system here where every Government is a coalition of the parties which can together form a majority in the proportion in which people voted for them. The leader of a political party is called a voorzitter or chairman and the overall leader of the government is also a voorzitter or chairman. That person also has an additional job or title of ‘Informator’, in other words the head of the government (Voorzitter / Chairman) regularly informs the head of state (King) of what is going on. You may also remember that the Belgian French Assembly has brought down four successive Governments over its intransigence over BHV. See here for an explanation:

http://troutclancampfire.blogspot.com/2010/04/oxymoron-of-politically-stable-state-in.html

In April one of the coalition parties walked out of the Government over BHV (which is still the issue) and the government fell. We had elections and a party called NVA won with the French socialists SSP a close second. NVA’s chairman is Bart de Waver: SSP’s chairman is Ellio de Rupo. Bart de Waver was invited by the King to form a government and be Informator. This is where it gets crazy – or cunning, he had no intention of presiding over yet another failed government at the hands of the French speakers so he refused the job. Now here you have someone sitting on a majority, the electorate has chosen to lead them and he won’t do it. I am guessing this is a first in history. There have been a lot of shenanigans going on over the last weeks and eventually Elllio de Rupo was asked to take the job which he has accepted and which was de Waver’s object all the time. Can you see how this is playing out? The French have control but they cannot move without the say so of the Vlaams semi-separatists who have the majority and cannot be ignored. This is really putting the boot on the other foot and the French are getting a dose of their own medicine. At present we still don’t have a government even though the departments of State are still trundling along as usual. All concerned parties were meeting until 3am this morning when they called it a day without reaching agreement or setting a time to reconvene. These are kind of interesting times; I will let you know how it develops.

I got my feathers ruffled the other night when I heard that the Republicans were complaining about Obama mentioning "the bush years" in a speech somewhere. Well damn I went and wrote a long post pissing about "the bush years" as much as possible at Moms Really Mad. Who could not forget the last 8 years of hell? Not me. We're still swimmin in the poop soup they made and will be for an eternity. Good God last night on 60 minutes, ( a repeat I believe) they did a story on how The Bush Admin allowed "Coal Ash" to be used in our agriculture...sure let's just grow cancerous food from the get go. Damn it made me even madder. I just want to call up the "house" and say please make some heads roll straiten up and flight right...please kick some serious butt! Won't happen. mrs p

Belgium, :-)
We really enjoy reading about your politc there. Quite a bit different from here and seems like it's more connected locally but I guess not without it's troubles. Please keep us posted.

On another note, everytime I see your Belgium name it reminds me of chocolate! A local store here called "Trader Joe's" sells these large 500 gram
(17.6 oz), chocolate bars which come in dark chocky and bittersweet and also milk chocky. You can get them with almonds, peanuts or not. They all come from Belgium and are handcrafted for them by chocolatiers in a small town outside of Antwerp according to the label. It is the best chocolate --we just love it! Today I was naughty and bought one. Usually get them at Christmas time but the store carries them all year round. A little taste of Belgium and so worth it! mrs p

Good reads, rp.

Woke up early last Wed. Thurs. and Fri. to check out the meteor shower, but I didn't see much of anyting. Maybe a small one, but that's it. Granted, it was probably due to living in a light polluted valley, but still. What I was actually hoping to see was a BIG-ASS meteor barrelling down on the planet! Preferably taking a trajectory that would put D.C. out of OUR missery, but no such luck. Rats!

Garden update: Cucumbers (3 types) and tomatoes (5 types) coming out of my ears, lots of cabbage, peppers coming along nicely, onions -ok, peas are late, but coming along and I think we're gonna have a butt-load of potates and sweet potatoes. Well, I hope anyway.

Good for you, Randy! Send pictures to us via e-mail (see front page of blog) and we'll post them!

Whew! Tragedy averted tonight... we were at the Grange Hall when a deluge began that suddenly changed to hail the size of marbles! A half inch of hail was all over the place, and we figured our garden was taken out. Went home to find that not one piece of hail seems to have fallen on the garden. Yea! The Grange Hall is only one mile away from here. Protection from The Great Mother or micro-climate...you decide.

OK, Belgium. I have a stupid question for you, since I find your country's political structure sorta incomprehensible... what about Brussels Sprouts? Why do we call them Brussels Sprouts? Are they from Brussels?

I didn’t know how Brussels sprouts got their name either so I looked it up. It seems they have been popular on the markets around that part of Belgium for 400 years but some claim that they originated in the Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan area many centuries before that. Some reports claim even earlier origins in China. Take your pick from this lot:

http://www.google.be/search?hl=en&client=opera&rls=en&q=How+did+Brussels+sprouts+get+their+name&btnG=Search&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

One interesting snippet is that the UK eats six times more of them than the whole of the USA.

I also have to tell you that you cost me some money the other day. I was sitting on a cafĂ© terrace (pavement bar) in my village telling my wife your story about Belgian chocolates when she said “That would be nice of you, there is a chocolatier on the other side of the street” so I put on my best forced smile went over, put my hand in my pocket and looked pleasant about it, ach, the things you do for love eh ;-)

I live just south of Antwerp, was there a name of the small town on the box, I would probably know it.

Apropos nothing at all, somebody once used a variation of the above story as an example of the law of diminishing returns. They said that if you buy your wife a pound of Belgian chocolates then she will love you for it. If instead you buy her two pounds of Belgian chocolates she will love you more but she will not love you twice as much. Stupid huh.

Anonymous said...

Belgium...thanks for the sprout info although it was freeacre who wanted to know. Me hubby and me mum love them...me not so much...but I like okra and they hate it so we're even.

Now I have an excuse to get another one of those chocolate bars and I'll re-check the label more thoroughly to see if they mention the name of the town. And you're a good sweet hubby for getting the chocky for the mrs.
cheers, mrs p

freeacre said...

Well, now you've done it. I suggest we purchase several types of chocolate - Gheridelli, Cadberry, Belgian, etc. and have a taste test! For medicinal purposes, of course.... to see which one is the best to stock up on for our survival supplies.

RAS said...

Fa, the chocolate tasting contest is the best idea I've heard all week. We can all post notes on which is the most medicinal. ;-)

We had to go to the ER yesterday (long story, everyone's going to be okay) and this is what this world has come to: We had to be searched and go through metal detectors to get into the ER. They took K's 3/4 inch pocketknife because it is a "weapon". No joke. (They missed my much larger pocketknife, because it was on my keychain.) I've carried my pocketknife onto airplanes, into the U.S. capital, and all kinds of other places and no one has ever called it a weapon.
K was amused. I was furious.

Yeah, we picked up the knife on the way out. It was the damndest thing I've ever seen. After you were searched they buzzed you through a secure door to go into the main waiting room, and then you had to be buzzed through two more secure doors to get back to be seen or join a patient being seen -and visitors have to wear sticky labels with the name of the room they're going to on it. Oh, and you have to pay for parking. At the ER.

freeacre said...

That is truly jaw-dropping, ras. You'd think you were trying to enter a missile silo, not a hospital.And, PAID PARKING?? Jeez.

Speaking of,missiles, you gotta hand it to Iran for unveiling a new domestically made missile and telling the West that "all options are on the table." Seems the attack on Iran has stalled and they are now looking into negotiations... Not so nice trying to attack somebody who actually has the capacity to fight back.
