- What if global population and the distance to the Sun were switched? Like, what if the total population of the Earth was 93 million people and the distance between the Earth and Sun was six and a half billion miles instead? Would this be a better world? (I concluded the answer probably lies in the Clintonesque conundrum, It depends on what your definition of better is.)
*****From over at Urban Survival this week, (a great place for things economic and other miscellany that could adversely impact the lives of the hordes), after the Labor Department released the latest month's inflation figures annualized at 6%, came the following:
- What the headlines in the MSM won't bring to your attention (so I will) is that the annualized rate of inflation for all items in the past three months pencils out to a 10.4% inflation rate. That should scare the hell out of reasonable people, but since there are none of them left in meaningful policy positions, we're safe on that score.
The progression of threats designed to keep Americans scared shitless of the World may be suffering a setback with Russia's latest aggressive actions in Georgia.
With the thawing of the Cold War after 1989, the new threats to assure continued growth of the crapitalists military industrial complex were to be rogue states like Sadam in Kuwait and terrorists in the World Trade Center. False flag operations are employed if our damn enemies fall lax or aren't producing enough terror fast enough from the right strategic areas on the globe.
Eventually, these will be replaced by the ultimate, scarier-than-shit enemies of state (of Earth, actually).
- Dr. Carol Rosin, the former spokesperson for the late Werner Von Braun, and ex-Nazi who played an instrumental role in the NASA space program, says a false flag alien attack is a distinct possibility. In fact, Von Braun told her shortly before his death that the first threat would be communism, then terrorism, giant killer asteroids and finally space aliens. The only thing is that all of these threats would be lies and used as an excuse to consolidate power and militarize space. (Von Braun passed away in 1977.)
I realize this sounds like a lot of conspiracy crap. I know how totally absurd this all sounds but, hey, Dick Cheney recently considered a false flag operation against the American fleet in the Persian Gulf by Americans disguised as Iranians. (Anyone that fucking nuts, well, there's no telling what crazy things he may have already done!)
While the future for you or I may not look that great at present, at least it's good to know the future looks very bright indeed for the U.S. military industrial complex -- so long as they remain mindful to tread carefully and not to 'faire détoner' the whole bloody world.
