Vehicle mounted active denial system

This isn't about bush riding in a motorcade. It's about the new "non-lethal" millimeter wave beam weapon that the air force is now proposing to use against US citizens as a "test" before distributing it across the globe. Seems the legal council to the air force recommended the test because of concerns about our "kinder& gentler"(tic) image overseas.
There are some shortcomings to the weapon that can be exploited though. It won't work on people wearing heavy clothing, which eliminates its use against demonstrators in northern climates during the fall and summer months. If they do use it here in the US , expect to see it in the southern states where minimal clothing is the standard (San Diego?). Know what the weapon looks like and if you see it in your area, dress appropriatly.
If you plan on carrying a sign to a demonstration, cover it in foil first and then layer your message over it. This will relect the beam back towards the weapons operator and maybe they will get a dose of their own medicine.
This weapon is of course being promoted as the latest and greatest in non-lethal warfare but if you're familiar with rubber and wooden bullets, you know that they can still cause injury so be carefull. I suspect that the intensity of the beam can be adjusted to cause injury and there's always the issue of getting hit with it in the face. I wouldn't doubt that serious injury to the eyes in particular will occur if the beam is directed to a persons face. The fluid in your eyeballs is much more sensitive than skin.
After a successful test run here in the US, I would expect to see it used in most temperate climates across the globe. The middle east and Africa in particular. I'm betting it's going to be used primarily to stop refugees. Imagine if they had it Rawanda, it could have stoppped hundreds of thousands from fleeing the massacres, leaving them defenseless. No, this thing is going to be very lethal in a way un-imagined as of yet. So don your tinfoil hats everyone, you don't have to be crazy to wear one now!

Dear Ms.Pelosi, minion to the Lord of the Flies.......

Comments: Dear Ms. Pelosi I am a democrat who strongly believes that Bush and Cheney and the rest of the administration belong in jail for war crimes that include the murder of 10s of thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, the violation of US laws in regard to illegal wiretapping, torture, lying to the US Congress and the American people, violations to arms treaties in regards to Israels use of US made weapons on civilian populations and the use of collective punishment against entire communities in Iraq and Afghanistan. For you to call Hugo Chavez a "thug" is totally incredible in light of the crimes committed by our own government. Mr. Chavez is a boyscout compared to bush. His words to the UN rang of truth. Shame on you!

I attempted to send this to Ms. Pelosi's congressional office this morning but was informed that if I was not a constituent it would not be processed. I was then re-routed to her Minority Speaker of the House site where there was no apparent way of contacting her. So here's hoping she happens to visit here.

Nudes deadlier than bombs


HARDLINE Indonesian Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir, who was jailed for his role in the deadly 2002 Bali attacks, says scantily clad women on television are more dangerous than bombs.

"If one is asked which one is more dangerous, naked women or the Bali bomb, the answer is certainly the women with such revealing clothing," he said.

A report on the state-run Antara news agency quoted Bashir warning that watching such women on television could destroy the faith of a believer.

He said he was perplexed by TV channels airing programs with women in skimpy outfits "and not programs that are blessed by Allah, such as the activities of prayer groups".

Bashir, 68, was released in June after serving more than two years for his role in the Bali blasts, which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

The trouble with peace.....

I find it difficult working for peace and holding down a steady job at the same time, I get spread pretty thin and don't really do well at either when I try to do both. I've often thought that if I could make money working for peace, that I would drop my regular job in a heartbeat. The trouble with that is, I'd be working to put myself out of a job! Who wants to buy peace stuff during times of peace? During peacetime, people just do their thing, no need for peace signs or posters or bumper stickers.
But the warmongers on the other hand are making a killing off the war and are motivated to sell more war. War is big business and if the mongers are doing their job, war is endless. They don't have to worry about running out of work, killing people always perpetuates killing more people and the need for weapons ,bullets and bombs is insatiable. They have more than enough money to bribe politicians, manipulate the media and even hire mercenaries to control foreign environments and initiate "false flag operations".
Am I jealous? Would it be preferable to join their side to insure a steady supply of meat and potatoes on my table? Not!
There are too many "peace dividends" to be gained from fighting the good fight and I've met so many incredibly un-selfish loving people who put themselves out for nothing but the promise of hope. No, we'll all just keep on keeping on with this thing even if it comes to nothing but a draw because to join the other side would be to sell out to evil, evil in its purest form, making money killing people.
"Another mother for peace" is shipping out a stack of "war is not healthy" posters to me this week and they are asking for nothing in return but that I distribute them, free of charge. If they're successful, they're going out of business!

Falling man......

Just read an interesting article on the "falling man" and the rest of the jumpers from the towers and I was saddened to find out what a taboo it is considered to be for a person to leap from a burning building.
In a search for clues to falling man's identity, the families of possible jumpers were approached and many expressed outrage that their family member would do such a thing. Religious morals seemed to play a large part in their rejection. What bothers me is the idea that they were commiting suicide at all. It seems to me that staying in that building would be suicidal. I doubt very much that the jumpers, at least the vast majority had suicidal tendencies. It was probably pretty obvious to them that no one, not even Jesus would be coming to their rescue. What would you do? Would you allow yourself to succumb to the searing heat and asphyxiation that was enveloping you? I know it's hard to predict what my real reaction would be from the comfort of my easy chair, but I can assure you that my decision would not be clouded by religious ethical debate. I'm certain I too would take the leap. A chance for a breath of fresh air, to maintain conciousness for ten more seconds. To fly one time before I died.
Read the article here at Esquire

Another interesting note with religious overtones appears in an article in Science about washing away sin. Literally. Yes, it seems that people seem to believe that they can absolve themselves from immoral acts by washing their hands or taking a shower. Even a little volunteerism seems to do the trick for some, which made me wonder if that was why Bush sat there in the school and continued to read "My pet Goat" after receiving word of the attacks. Maybe he really did know more than he let on.
Seems to me there could be a strong market for some kind of "Ethical Handi Wipe" Removes blood and other impurities in a Jiffy!
You'll have to subscribe to the magazine to see the article in full but you can read the abstract here and supporting material here. Enjoy! And don't forget to wash up, soap and water won't kill sin but it does make it easier to slide off!
