Government issued chemical crap?

Yesterday evening I was having a conversation with a friend who served special opts in Vietnam. We were discussing; well mainly I was discussing, that it seemed like there was some sort of crap in the air because my nose burned, and a number of my co-workers were saying they too had respiratory and nasal problems. My friend said; well perhaps it’s something to do with all the Chemtrails over the city. Not being very up on chemtrails or contrails I asked him what he was talking about. He said that he has been seeing the criss cross patterns over the city for the past year or so. He said the planes were flying really high, and were definitely of military orientation. Apparently a local talk news person was recently fired for questioning on- air what these planes were doing and inquiring about what sort of chemicals they were dropping. The military adamantly denied that the trails are chemtrails saying that all people are seeing is the typical contrail associated with high altitude condensation.

Of course the conspiracy theorist in me is intrigued. The fact that I have been breathing some sort of shit that the government denies dropping not only intrigues, but scares me. My friend has 20+ years military experience and I think he is quite qualified to make an educated discretion between chemtrails and contrails.

I did a little research on the subject and these are some of the things that I found.

“Proponents of the chemtrail theories differentiate chemtrails from contrails by describing them as streams that sometimes persist in the sky for hours, and which sometimes trace criss-crossing, grid-like patterns, or parallel stripes which eventually blend to form large clouds. Another feature that proponents say distinguishes a chemtrail from a contrail is the presence of visible color prisms in the streams, unusual concentrations of sky tracks in a single area, or lingering tracks left by unmarked or military airplanes flying in atypical altitudes or locations.”

What he was viewing were actually “chemtrails.��? Chemtrails refer to contrails that some citizens, such as Gross, believe may contain chemicals for the purposes of weather manipulation.”

So – does this mean that they are trying to save the people of New Orleans from the next big hurricane? If so, why are they spraying during the winter? Does this have something to do with our December 11th snow that stuck on the ground?

“From Louisiana, “Here in New Orleans we get sprayed weekly.” From Texas, “I have been noticing aircraft discharging trails in various patterns across the San Antonio sky.”

”Government agencies and other experts on contrail or atmospheric phenomena deny the existence of chemtrails, insisting that the characteristics attributed to them are simply features of contrails responding differently in diverse conditions in terms of the sunlight, temperature, horizontal and vertical wind shear, and humidity levels present at the aircraft's altitude”

I do not really know what to think, but there seems sufficient evidence from the above videos that there is something going on in the sky over New Orleans and other cities. I really do wonder what is going on. When the government adamantly denies anything it is a cause for great concern.

I have bad luck; damn it!

I was reading a James Patterson book and one of the lines was “A bad wind this way blows”. The phrase reminds me of my Saturday Night.

All day Saturday it was like I was working myself into a state of complete mental retardation. I was moody; unfocused and generally just a misery to me and anyone that I came in contact with.

Nevertheless I felt the need to go meet friends for dinner. I left the gallery and I knew that I should go home first and drop off my work bag, containing all the postcards, labels and stamps that I had spent 5 hours on that afternoon compiling for my next opening. Also there was my “go to bag” were all my prescription drugs, a camera, ear rings, phone charger, makeup; you name it, is was in my “go to bag”; I even had a bottle of Crown for extreme situations stashed in there. Along with my “go to bag” I had a box of Birthday presents that my sister sent me; none of which had I even opened yet not my card or my presents.

So like the dumb dumb that I had worked myself up to during the day; I went to dinner and left all my stuff in the truck. After dinner we all went out for drinks and instead of dropping me off at my truck my friends dropped me at my house. I completely zoned that I had left everything in my truck until I woke up at 3:00 am. I woke with an abrupt start and just knew without a doubt that someone had broken into my car. I tried and tried to go back to sleep; as 3:00 am did not seem like a good time to walk 7 blocks by myself to go check on my car.

I eventually drifted into a fitful slumber and while there had the weirdest dream. I was in my bed and all around me things were moving by themselves. The drawers were opening and closing, a floor lamp (I don’t even have a floor lamp) was twisting and turning and all the while there was a low moaning sound. So in my dream I thought am I dreaming? This is kind of scary. I wished that someone else was there to verify that what I was seeing was real.

All of a sudden my co-worker showed up on the end of my bed. The humor in this is that my friend is a very petite beautiful woman who literally screams if a lizard, bug you name it crosses her path. I look at her in disappointment and say I must be dreaming because you can not be real. Surely “they” whoever they are would have sent someone other than you. She is just looking at me in disgust; so I reach out and touch her arm and she is solid.

Coworker: “Why did you conjure me? I told you that I did not want to see your Ghosts.”
Me: “Well I definitely did not ask for you to show up, but can you at least verify that you are seeing what I am seeing?”
Coworker “Make me go away now; I don’t want to be in your dream. Why didn’t you conjure up someone else?”
Me: “I don’t know, it wasn’t my choice”
Co Worker: “Make me go away now!!!”
Me: “NO now you’re here please don’t go away I don’t want to be left alone with it”
Co Worker: “I don’t care what you want. I am going to think of the ghost hunter woman and then I m going to leave you to your ghosts; I can’t believe you made me come here”

My co-worker is an impeccably dressed, intelligent woman; and the supercilious tone she used was the same one I have heard her use with her husband when she means: no negotiations I will have my way.

Me “Please don’t leave me”

Co worker” You even made scary sounds along with everything else, I am leaving now; I may never forgive you for this. Then as parting comment she said YOU HAVE a lava Lamp? Eweweee – ”

Then in a blink a woman who is dressed in a safari outfit with a large butterfly net shows up. She informs me that she will prove that the ghosts are all in my imagination; by addressing each piece of furniture individually that is moving. So she goes through my bedroom and backroom with a little posse of small creatures and touches everything with her butterfly net… I dunno what she found out as she never told me.

Then I woke up. Then I got dressed and hiked down to my Truck. Sure enough someone had completely broken out the window; and stole my presents and my “Go to Bag”. They must have used a dirty white hat to cover their hand as there was one sitting on my front seat. Next to the hat was guess what? My bottle of Crown Royal; evidently the burglar must have had a sense of humor; even though I am still having a hard time seeing it. “Guess this sucker’s going to need a stiff one after this”.

The police made me feel like it was all my fault for leaving stuff in my car. I guess it was my fault; but I did not see the point in them making me feel worse than I already do. Please keep your fingers crossed that it does not rain until Safelite Glass can fix my window; and I found out the hard way, almost, why you can not cover your broke out window with a garbage bag… it makes seeing the traffic to the right rather difficult. On the way to work I had to get out of the truck at an intersection and pull the plastic off so I could see; once again feeling like an idiot as the guy in the truck behind me leaned on his horn for 20 seconds. I was good and refrained from calling him a name. (s)

Lesson learned? When a wind is blowing bad, go home, lock the doors and order take out. My co worker inquired what I had to eat to make me dream the dream; so if you get food; make it bland/ I still am under the assumption that her assumption is that I take drugs before bed. Maybe the key is actually taking a lot of drugs before bed :)

Happy Friday

This is somewhat nostalgic. Friday night now typically mean just that; however I have noticed that if I am going to misbehave Friday night is when I will do it. Why Friday? I have to work on Saturdays… Saturday Knights would be much better days to let my hair down on :)

Here’s to your Friday Night / Saturday Morning.

I want to smoke a cig or "something" NOW

When the Beatles sort of, in a way, met Joe at Woodstock or something to that effect/ affected the lyrics of this song or pehaps the editors just have a good imagination or perhaps my Chantex is really starting to get to me ;)

clearing the airwaves

This post just made me think of "the horror" should Americans ever be forced to do as the rest of the world and change over to the metric system :)

I just picked up 2 converter boxes for the gallery, why I need 2 in a space that is only 2 rooms and 600 sq ft is a good question, guess the answer is: because I can??? because I wanted two (too)

The coupons are $40 off, so each box is only $20.00. Apparently the box works really well and you can get 12 "crystal" clear channels. I say "apparently" as I was not the one to hook up the boxes and have not seen the clarity yet. I want to add that I, unlike the lady in the video, am sure that I could have hooked them up without assistance.

Well that is debatable as I have an allergy to instructions of all kinds… anyway I would advise everyone to get one; it’s almost FREE hehee and that is a good enough reason for me.

Quite frankly I think our government could have supplied a $20 digital TV to anyone with an analog TV cheaper than the billions they spent on advertising, mailing coupons, printing the credit card like coupons and supplying the boxes...but why would we want the government to do anything that might actually save money and make sense?

You can get a $40 coupon Here

Ann's Guilty perverse pleasure

She’s BACK with another hate mongering book…”Guilty”. I say hate mongering as I really think Ann Coulter intends to offend with her writing and tone.

I am not a single parent, but on behalf of any single parent; especially single moms who Ann singles out, I am saying unequivocally she has stepped over the bounds of acceptability. She states in her new book: “If you are a victim of crime, thank a single mom” “Single mothers are victimizing children by raising them without Fathers”

What I would like to ask her, and am surprised that none of the interviewers to my knowledge has asked: What about the mother who was married and loses her husband through death? Is she polluting her child by not having a Father Figure in the Child’s life? The broadness of her assertion is crap. If she is going to say something she should just say, in a bigoted entailment racist way what she means:

Who Ann is really talking about but is not saying; are single women who have illegitimate children. I hate the word illegitimate as it implies that the child is less than a child of married parents. And I think Ms Coulter is embracing this point, making her a more Evil Cow than I previously thought.

Anyway Matt Lauer does a pretty good job fending off her foul smell in this interview :)

Rat Ttrap: and you've been caught

There was a “lotta rotten” going on that night: when Boom Town Rats came out with this song.

There is a ton of Rat Trap going on now and it scares me. Bob Geldof is brilliant:

See what he did for all causes humane: and he put his career as a musician behind to pursue such lofty ideas as Live Aid and so very much more: No wonder he was the least likely to be a Knight, but now is. Bob Knight.

"France and Egypt announced an initiative to stop the fighting in Gaza late Tuesday, hours after Israeli mortar shells exploded near a U.N. school sheltering hundreds of people displaced by the onslaught on Hamas militants. At least 30 Palestinians died, staining streets with blood."

"They said they were awaiting a response from Israel. Israeli officials in Jerusalem declined immediate comment on the announcement, which came amid diplomatic efforts by the U.S. and other nations to resolve a conflict that has seen 600 people killed in 11 days."

"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice weclomed the initiative, but cautioned that no agreement would succeed unless it halted Hamas rocket attacks on Israel and arms smuggling into Gaza.

Earlier in the day, President-elect Barack Obama broke his silence on the crisis, saying that "the loss of civilian life in Gaza and in Israel is a source of deep concern for me." He declined to go further, reiterating his stance that the U.S. has only one president at a time

Only one at a time (presidents that is- unless you concider the trilagy of GW, Dick and Carl- I always thought threesomes were alway a problem with men...) Let us hope that our new President has the intelligence, the wisdom and the heart with a cetain amount of dipolmacy and integrity thrown in to end this; and end it now.
