How To Overthrow The Government and not get Hungry

TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE BY STORM - Global Resistance Begins March 20th, 2006

Once again, Ramsey Clark, Medea Benjamin, and their idiot ilk will attempt a coup d’état on the United States Government. The most powerful Nation in the world will be overthrown on Monday March 20th. The overthrowers [sic] recommend that you bring a snack and extra to share with others. Apparently overthrowing the government works up an appetite. The Two Malcontents recommend Fig Newtons-- they're the best for revolutionary work.

Of course, attempting to over throw the government or even advocating it is against the Law. However, not too much will be done to Clark et al.

We wait with bated breath...and a Fig Newton.

Fire Rifle, Get Spy Pics


Israel has developed a slew of cool sensors for keeping tabs on terrorists -- grenades stuffed with cameras, softball-shaped sensors, mini-drones flown by a Dick Tracey-esque controller.

Defense Update spots an Israeli surveillance tool that I hadn't heard of before: a rifle-mounted, sensor-filled projectile called "Smart Arrow." Shoot it into a wall, and a "video camera is activated, sending live images from the target for up to seven hours."

The Smart Arrow comes with "an option for small explosive heads to assist the projectile embedding in the hardest surfaces," Defense Daily notes. "Once the tip of the Arrow is embedded, the body -- containing a small video camera -- pivots from a ball joint and hangs below the head. Then it begins to transmit live images from the surrounding area to a remote display and control unit."

This... allows the operator to view an "out of sight" area, such as an alley, before friendly ground troops overtake the position--a process that could be dangerous and time consuming, Kattan said.
"It can also be shot into the wall above a window then...[swivel down and] transmit what's going on inside," Gal said.
The display and control unit is small and highly portable and allows the operator to rotate the camera on the Smart Arrow while video is transmitted continuously. The LCD display screen is about six and a half inches in size and the unit can operate for about three hours continuously on a single charge.
The video transmission range is about 300 meters outdoors, and several hundred feet if, for example, the system was shot through a window and embedded in an interior wall or ceiling...
The Arrow can transmit the image to several receivers [and] has a 60-degree field of view with a frame rate of 25 per second and a resolution of 420 TV lines (tvl) in black and white and 320 tvl in color.
A Smart Arrow system includes two projectiles, one control unit and a charger in a rugged transport case.

American clothing label defiles Bush


Check out this clothing label from the American company, Tom Bihn. In the drying instructions it says," We are sorry our president is an idiot" and " We did not vote for him".

The company, when asked about their label, came up with the excuse that it all started as a joke. Read their explanation on their website. Here.

The Man, The Moon, The Mothership

Nasa to put man on far side of moon Jonathan Leake , Science Editor NASA, the American space agency, has unveiled plans for one of the largest rockets ever built to take a manned mission to the far side of the moon.
It will ferry a mother ship and lunar lander into Earth orbit to link up with a smaller rocket carrying the crew. Once united they will head for the moon where the larger ship will remain in orbit after launching the lunar lander and crew.

The design emerged during a space science conference in Houston, Texas, last week. The plan is part of Nasa’s “Return to the Moon” programme set in motion by President George W Bush two years ago.
Under the project, up to four astronauts at a time will land on the far side of the moon to collect rock samples and carry out research, including looking for water that might one day support a lunar base.
The scale of the missions is much larger than the earlier Apollo programme, which is why Nasa will need two separate rockets to take the mother ship and crew into space.
Some missions will also see manned spacecraft landing in unexplored areas such as the lunar mountains and on the moon’s south and north poles.

John Connolly, manager of Nasa’s lunar lander project, said the system was designed to carry crews to almost every part of the moon’s surface.
“The samples they collect and the research they carry out will help solve many mysteries about the origins and composition of the moon and its suitability as a base,” he said.
The Apollo programme carried out six lunar landings between 1969 and 1972. The feat was a triumph, but the technical limitations of the Apollo craft, plus ignorance of lunar terrain, meant all six missions had to be sent to the moon’s plains.
These regions, all on the near side of the moon, were the only areas known to be flat enough for a safe landing. This has frustrated scientists because the samples collected by the six missions are all similar. They are also thought to be younger than lunar mountain rocks.
The far side — so called because it always faces away from the Earth — was first photographed in 1959 by a Russian probe. In 1968 the astronauts of Apollo 8 became the first to view it directly.
The evidence gathered by such missions was enough to deter any attempt to land because most of the far side appeared to be covered in large craters. Additionally, any craft landing there would be cut off from radio contact with Earth.

Connolly believes, however, that Nasa will be able to overcome such problems by sending a series of robotic probes ahead of the manned missions.
The first of these, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, to be launched in 2008, will map the moon’s surface in detail.
Cameras will photograph the surface, backed by a laser altimeter to create a three-dimensional relief map from which Nasa can identify landing sites.
Then, from 2010, a series of “companion lander” missions will carry out test landings on selected sites to see if they are worth a visit by humans.
The final element will be a system of communications satellites, dubbed the “lunar internet”, so astronauts will be able to relay signals to Earth from any part of the moon.

Connolly said the first humans could arrive as early as 2015, although 2018 was more likely. The agency would then aim to send two crews to the moon each year for up to five years. The programme will cost around £56 billion and may also be used to test technology for any future mission to Mars.
Some have questioned whether the programme will produce enough good science to justify the costs.
Manuel Grande, head of the planetary science group at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, dismissed such fears. “Finding out more about the moon will help us understand where the Earth and moon came from,” he said. “There do not have to be good scientific reasons . . . It’s like going up Everest; we want to go to places like the moon and Mars just because they are there.”

'Hanoi Jane' Fonda Honor Withdrawn


The sponsor of an effort to honor Jane Fonda in the Georgia state Senate withdrew her resolution Thursday, after a rocky reception from some colleagues and a phone call from the actress' office.Sen. Steen Miles, D-Decatur, said a representative for Fonda, who is out of the country, asked that she avoid the controversy the effort had stirred.

"This, ladies and gentlemen, should not be occupying our time," said Miles.

The resolution cites the Atlanta resident's work as founder of the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, donations to Atlanta-area universities and charities and role as goodwill ambassador with the United Nations.But the two-time Academy Award winner's political activities protesting the Vietnam War, including a trip to North Vietnam in 1972, have long made her a target of veterans of that war.
The measure, which Miles said is one of several she has pushed honoring Georgia women during Women's History Month, cruised through the Senate on Wednesday before some members realized it was part of a stack of mostly non-controversial resolutions approved because no one objected to them.

Sen. John Douglas, R-Social Circle, later asked that the vote be reconsidered.

"I can think of no living American who is less worthy of this honor," Douglas, chairman of the chamber's Veterans and Military Affairs committee, said Thursday. "She is as guilty of treason as Benedict Arnold and Tokyo Rose."

Miles said she is sympathetic to concerns of military members. She said her brother and ex-husband both served in Vietnam and her daughter currently serves in the Army reserve. But she said Fonda's good works for the past three decades outweigh any negatives associated with her Vietnam-era actions.

Danger--Will Robinson!


Failed presidential candidate John Kerry offered a startling prediction Friday morning:
If the U.S. doesn't change its global warming ways, New York City and Boston will be destroyed due to flooding by 2036."I can say to an absolute certainty," Kerry told radio host Don Imus, "that if things stay exactly as they are today absent some unpredictable change in what's going on, within the next 30 years the Arctic ice sheet is gone."Not maybe, not if - the Arctic ice sheet is gone," the Massachusetts Democrat insisted, before offering his hair-raising prediction."

Already you have the Greenland ice sheet beginning to melt ... If that melts, you have a level of sea level increase that wipes out Boston Harbor, New York Harbor - I mean, it's just stunning what we're looking at."Kerry blamed the Bush administration's environmental policies for the coming destruction of New York and Boston."Europe and the other countries are responding," he told Imus. "The United States remains oblivious - at least the administration remains oblivious."Despite the dire warning, Kerry hasn't done much to change his own global warming ways.

At last report, he and his wife still owned several SUVs, a gas guzzling yacht, five BTU gobbling homes and a private jet.Like fellow environmentalist RFK, Jr., Kerry continues to withold his support for the proposed construction of a wind farm in the waters off Nantucket, where he and his wife own a mansion.

Unfuckingbelievable! If Kerry and Kennedy would shut the fuck up!...global warming would be reduced significantly.

Cosmic Caca

Physicists announced Thursday that they now have the smoking gun that shows the universe went through extremely rapid expansion in the moments after the big bang, growing from the size of a marble to a volume larger than all of observable space in less than a trillion-trillionth of a second.

The discovery — which involves an analysis of variations in the brightness of microwave radiation — is the first direct evidence to support the two-decade-old theory that the universe went through what is called inflation.
It also helps explain how matter eventually clumped together into planets, stars and galaxies in a universe that began as a remarkably smooth, superhot soup.

"It's giving us our first clues about how inflation took place," said Michael Turner, assistant director for mathematics and physical sciences at the National Science Foundation. "This is absolutely amazing."

George cLooney--Saint,Humanitarian, and overall swell Guy

LOS ANGELES -
The winner of the Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role in "Syriana" has donated his decadent Oscar gift bag to the United Way, a spokeswoman for the organization said Wednesday.
The loot will be sold in an online auction to benefit the United Way Hurricane Response and Relief Recovery Fund, said spokeswoman Sheila Consaul. Clooney is a member of the charity's board of trustees, she said.
"This refocuses people back to the long-term nature of hurricane recovery efforts," she said.
The gift bag given to presenters at the 78th Annual Academy Awards includes a BlackBerry 8700c, a Kay Unger kimono and a cultured Tahitian-pearl necklace, among other items.
The entire collection will be sold to "one very, very lucky bidder," Consaul said.
The auction will begin March 21 on the United Way Web site.
The winning bidder will also receive a handwritten thank-you note from Clooney acknowledging the donation to hurricane relief, Consaul said.

Democrats: Dishonest on Iraq

Flyer promotes boycott by Hispanics-- Friday


Flyers in Spanish of unidentified origin circulating around Dalton this week call for a day of strikes and demonstrations on Friday to demonstrate the importance of the Hispanic population to the state’s economy — and in protest of Senate Bill 529.
The “Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act” passed the Senate on Monday and underwent its second reading in the House.
Among other things, it would deny some state benefits to undocumented adults and use the tax code to penalize employers with illegals on their payrolls, The Associated Press reported.

“If you are illegally in the country, you won’t be hired by any company because your boss will have to pay a fee for hiring you,” the flyer states. “Join us for our demonstarion and strike. This means don’t show up at work, at school, don’t go shopping, and don’t do any money transfers.”

Local education officials said they would be going about business as usual.
“I haven’t seen the flyer, but I understand it encourages a boycott,” said Marlene Escobedo, spokeswoman for Whitfield County Schools. “I have heard about it, but I don’t expect for it to be a full-fledged protest.”
More than 80 percent of the students at Dalton’s Blue Ridge Elementary School are Hispanic.

“I’ve had a couple of parents call me with concerns. The bottom line I’m getting is that they’re confused,” said principal Phil Jones, who is fluent in Spanish. “I think they realize the most important thing they can do is send their kids to school, yet somebody is telling them not to.
“I think they’re afraid of this legislation and fear their children may not be educated.”
Deana Farmer, director of community relations for Dalton Public Schools, said it’s important that students attend all their classes.
“There are only 180 days of instruction, and each one is important,” Farmer said. “We know our families believe that, too.”

Father Jesus David Trujillo, pastor of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dalton, said in a statement that his congregation “is not organizing or promoting the boycott that is being encouraged” via the flyer.
“I request all parents to send their children to school this Friday,” Trujillo said, “because by not doing so, the children will be the ones to suffer from this absence.”

The flyer promotes a march toward the Capitol in Atlanta at 10 a.m. on Friday.

State Rep. Tom Dickson, R-Cohutta, said the protesters’ voices are likely to fall on deaf ears.
“We won’t even be in session on Friday. I’ll be back in good ol’ Dalton and glad of it,” Dickson, a former school superintendent, said. “We’ll be in brief session (this morning), busy with committee meetings. We’ll be out Friday and return next Tuesday.”
Dickson said there’s a good chance Senate Bill 529 will pass the House, and its effect on local industry and its many Hispanic workers is undetermined.
“The carpet mills employ a significant number of Hispanics. Nobody knows the exact answer as to how many are legal or illegal. Some estimate 40- to 50-percent illegal,” Dickson said. “There’s a lot of sentiment that we’ve got to do something with immigration reform — starting with this bill.
“Others have concerns about the impact on the local economy.”

Entr'acte: Guidance for our time from the Age of Light


Alan Riding International Herald Tribune

PARIS Given that most French teenagers study some philosophy at school, it is not surprising that as adults they continue to view life through a conceptual prism. Indeed, even if apocryphal, the remark once attributed to a French official seems credible: "This works well in practice, but does it work in theory?"
Now, however, with things definitely not working well in practice here, there seems to be an urgent need for some fresh theories to help the French confront the uncertainties posed by globalization, religious fundamentalism, multiculturalism, European integration and their own dysfunctional political system.
So where better to look than the 18th century?

First declassified documents from prewar Iraq released


The Bush administration Wednesday night released the first declassified documents collected by U.S. intelligence during the Iraq war, showing among other things that Saddam Hussein's regime was monitoring reports that Iraqis and Saudis were heading to Afghanistan after the Sept. 11 attacks to fight U.S. troops.
The documents, the first of thousands expected to be declassified over the next several months, were released via a Pentagon Web site at the direction of National Intelligence Director John Negroponte.

Many were in Arabic – with no English translation – including one the administration said showed that Iraqi intelligence officials suspected al-Qaeda members were inside Iraq in 2002.
The Pentagon Web site described that document this way: "2002 Iraqi Intelligence Correspondence concerning the presence of al-Qaeda Members in Iraq. Correspondence between IRS members on a suspicion, later confirmed, of the presence of an Al-Qaeda terrorist group. Moreover, it includes photos and names."

The release of the documents, expected to continue for months, is designed to allow lawmakers and the public to investigate what documents from Saddam's regime claimed about such controversial issues as weapons of mass destruction and al-Qaeda in the period before the United States invaded Iraq in March 2003.
