Not God! The Devil! Hey! NSFW:



This man helped me keep a portion of my sanity in the Bush years...

Love it! I agree with this comment there:

"It's all rather silly, since Nabisco was founded long before there was radio, let alone TV."

Why should little details such as those get in the way of a good conspiracy theory?


Wha' fax? We don't need no stinkin' fax!



Yes! Let's use Satan's Constitution to protect our Freedom and Liberty!

P. S. I am particularly fond of the Obama - Akhenaten link:

Oh, no, they'll have to call off TEOTWAWKI. Then blame Obama for losing money.

Obama didn't panic with the pig flu and drag everyone to FEMA camps to force them to take the flu vaccine. What will the bunker crowd do?

Obama didn't come for the guns, they wasted a fortune in ammo and on gun sales. Wait, there is proof now:



Obama was part of the reason why they are doing it:

U.S. airdrops weapons, supplies to besieged Syrian Kurds

A senior administration official said the U.S. has emphasized with the Turkish government the urgency with which it views the situation in Kobani. In a telephone call on Saturday, President Barack Obama told Turkish President Reçep Tayyip Erdogan that the U.S. intended to resupply the Kurdish fighters with Iraqi Kurdish arms.

Thanks for the BBC story.

Some problems with that link, flaming dem on details. Here's more:

Yes, Obama got them to see reason and stop with the deadly obstruction.

MV shared this from the BBC in his thread here:

All that's needed is a microscopic scope on those guns and that'll kill that Ebola. Bang!

'Stand Your Ground' has already been invoked:

SC Republican: Execute Anyone Who Might Have Ebola

More death by modern hygiene! I thought flushing it was a cool idea, but never did it, myself.

Although my 'death by modern hygiene' was in jest, it's the hardiness of the shell that protects the parasite that is the undoing here.

My first thought was, 'Take the cat to the veterinarian to get the problem eliminated at the source,' but some cat owners can't or won't be able to do that.

And the cat is not so much the source, as a carrier. The parasite could be living inside any host, including us smarty pants humans. Pregnant women are warned against litter box duty for this reason.

This is a shame it is so late in getting attention with other scientific studies. It's reported fish and other marine life ingest a lot of caffeine and prescription drugs through urine sent into municipal waste systems. Now we see just how ineffective those can be in such cases, although they work well enough to prevent epidemics.

So, is it time to return to using the outhouse?

That solution can create other problems or so I've heard. I spent an interesting summer with my Cree grandfather deep in the southern woodlands. The path to the double seater was far away from the house in the woods that surrounded his property, far away from the road.

Trees and brush maintained a layer of privacy between him and the rest of the world. He lived in a tiny old house with a wood stove for cooking and heat and grew all his own food in the clearings.

I thought the outhouse odd being a city dweller, but didn't mind. Kids are adaptable. My father in the city had an opinion when I asked what he thought the most important invention was. He responded without a pause'Indoor plumbing.' Yes, we love the porcelain throne, don't we?

IMO, best to get a composting toilet if at all possible. That was always my intention if I moved to the country again. And to use gray water and passive solar applications. All of that is labor intensive. We seem to have found the limit of our cleverness and love of convenience.

In nature, there are neither rewards nor punishments, there are consequences.

~ Robert Green Ingersoll

Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.

~ Alfred A. Montapert

People certainly need to be educated on how the natural world, including things we'd prefer to never think about, work.

'They act like slave catchers.' The sight of an unfettered black man is abnormal to them.

I understand completely, but Obama sees Texas differently than we do:

Texas is a so-called red state, but you’ve got 10 million Democrats here in Texas. And… there are a whole lot of people here in Texas who need us, and who need us to fight for them.

~President Obama
