Fugly Foam

by Lasthorseman Sun May 11th, 2008 at 05:20:36 PM EST

Grampy is still the king.  His eyes light up when he sees me.  We have some time to kill before we can check into the campground so we head for the boardwalk.  I watch him savor the beauty of sand dunes and beach grass ten feet below us.  We arrive at the peak of the last dune and look out at the Atlantic Ocean.  I say "Do you like the beach?"  He melts my heart by looking at me with those wide innocent eyes and says it, beach, for the first time in his life.

Little argument that great men do great things but even David points out that problems happen, wars, pestilence, dying civilizations, etc when the balance of money, power and influence get to far out of balance.  Like where we are now.

Martial Law Provocations

A US Marine is filmed throwing a puppy off a cliff,neo-cons deny.  Defective "humans" lament "It's only a puppy and not an Iraqi baby.

http://hotair.com/archives/2008/03/03/video-the-puppy-clip/

Total news blackout over Marion Cotillard's comments on 911 truth continues.  Left leaning websites are adding "moon landing denial" to back page "story" of her comments.
http://www.propagandamatrix.com/articles/march2008/030308_comments_echo.htm

Citizen confronts Clinton with 911 truth sign.  Crowd encourages police to "taze him bro".  MSNBC scumbag then advocates secret CIA renditions.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqhN_p3ZO6o&eurl=http://www.infowars.net/articles/march2008/03030 8MSNBC.htm

The accelleration and promotion of these events is as if by magic increasing polarizing people on both sides.  Dividing the population, provoking a "response".  Yes, we are in the middle of the selction process Diebold will complete for us.

It was a very black day here.  I am left to ponder if I was right when last summer I said "Last Summer before Armageddon, enjoy".

Major Illuminati News

by Lasthorseman Thu Feb 14th, 2008 at 06:15:09 PM EST

My gut feeling told me something was wrong with the Obama phenomena, today's news confirms the feelings. Distancing myself from M$M news I have found alternates in the alterntive news spectrum of the internet.  It is global in scope although the numbers are small.  Confirming the accuracy of stories is difficult if not impossible but to some extent this matters not.  The general memes, the projections and elaborate deceptions involved point to an organized, planned destruction of America.  A good pre-requisite to fully understanding this link is the movie End Game by Alex Jones.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/ar...

Yesterday Congress held hearings about professional baseball.  I wondered what Satanic evil they needed to cover up with such a silly diversion.  Today I have my answer.  The outrage-o-meter is pegged so I might be a tad incoherent.

Lasthorseman :: The Illuminati News
After all it is the dream of the "left", no guns, kyoto protocols, UN global tax and fighting global poverty.  It is all of the things one could wish for, but not.  Government will control ever more of your life, not for your benefit but for theirs, not for the benefit of all, but theirs.
Global tax?  Does "your" own national government listen to you?  Global tax means global government.  Yet another toad in the army of people who want to spend your money and undermine national soverignty and identity.  Most "trade" agreements already superceed US authority.  Taxation without representation!

Kyoto.  In 1992 China and India were named exempt from carbon emission restrictions paving the way for the western world to exploit the situation highly.  I have no doubt we are screwing up the enviornment, I also have no doubt global warming a la Al Gore is the scam that will end my lifestyle.
Imagine the profit margins of zero unions, near zero wages and a complete absence of government regulation.  I plan of boycotting the Olympics just based on human rights principles alone.

The UN Biodiversity project seeks to re-wild much of America leaving the remaining people confined to packed ugly and depressing mega-cities.

http://www.govtrack.us/congres...

HR 1302  Global Poverty-yes we can't impeach, we are not accoutable the economy is a myth and health care right here at home is reduced to a scam.  Can we really afford to feed the world.

Is Obama Illuminati elite?  Yup, they say so.

http://www.rense.com/general80...

http://actindependent.org/

Quotes from the article.
On the Bali summit

During the summit, over one hundred prominent scientists signed a letter dismissing the move as a futile bureaucratic scheme which will diminish prosperity and increase human suffering.

Perfectly happy with giving Bush carte blanche to continue illegal spying on American citizens with the passage of this week's telecom immunity bill, the Senate seems destined to rubber stamp legislation that would lead to a global carbon tax.

In reality, the bill also "Commits nations to banning "small arms and light weapons" and ratifying a series of treaties, including the International Criminal Court Treaty, the Kyoto Protocol (global warming treaty), the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child
Taxation without representation and no guns for the second revolution.
Now wasn't that better than M$M?

US Travel Advisory

by Lasthorseman Fri Feb 1st, 2008 at 06:55:34 PM EST

Not long ago I came across this link.
http://eggmann.blog.is/blog/eggmann/entry/389611/

This one comes from the heartland of "America".  The wife of a high school teacher called the police for help.  I don't have the complete story yet but I do have this news report.  This is the result of an increasingly militarized police force replacing reason with the policy and procedure of the Stanford Prison experiment.  A testament to the centralization of Homeboy Security and the false flag operation known as 911.  It was most truely America's Reichstag fire.

It Makes More Sense

by Lasthorseman Sun Jan 20th, 2008 at 05:54:31 PM EST

Making sense out of American lately is becoming a lost cause.  To quote from the video, "The stink is becoming too hard to ignore".

Even though this comes from a "discredited" source, one deep into the "conspiracy theory" "terraist" watch list he is only one man.  One man alone, even thousands of dedicated pure of heart men could not undo it.

What is a miracle?  The miracle is simply that the gas stations, supermarkets and work on Monday are still there, for now anyway.  Long but informative, disinfo or not far more entertaining than American TV. http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/261.html

That Makes Three

by Lasthorseman Sun Jan 13th, 2008 at 07:04:19 PM EST

First were the revelations from Sibel Edmonds and all of the ramifications of US sponsored nuclear proliferation.

Second is Migeru in catching the voting machine fraudulent selection process in the New Hampshire primary.

Last and just in is the story about Japan and the debate over participation in Bush's global war OF terror.

From pilotsfor911truth.org

On January 11th 2008, Fujita Yukihisa made a 30 minute presentation at the House of Councillors (equivalent to the U.S. Senate). He directly questioned the official version of 9/11 in a session with Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda Yasuo and members of his Cabinet.

Fujita is a member of the opposition party, Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). He was elected to the House of Councillors in 2007. He is a former Member of the House of Representative and Former Vice Director General of the International Department of the Democratic Party of Japan.

Fujita emphasized that there was never an official police investigation into the deaths of the 24 Japanese citizens who were killed on 9/11.

He stated that many in the US doubt the official version of 9/11 and numerous individuals have collected evidence that contradicts the government's version, which can be seen on many websites.

During his speech, an aide showed several larges photos of:

  • the Pentagon entry and exit hole and a scale overlay of a 757
  • the flight path towards the Pentagon
  • the WTC Twin Towers exploding
  • the WTC 7 collapse
  • the early announcment of the collapse of WTC 7 by the BBC and CBS

He demanded further investigation of 9/11.

This issue is being raised now as part of the discussion of whether Japan should increase its military and financial support of the "War on Terror"

Video of his presentation can be seen in three parts at Video of Speech Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

Sibel Edmonds Truth

by Lasthorseman Wed Jan 9th, 2008 at 07:22:19 PM EST

Just starting to surface on the internet are excerpts from Sible Edmonds.
The corruption is as vast as the collective imagination of Satanic souls.
Nuclear proliferation, prostitution, arms trading all rolled up in one.

American Hospitality Homeboy Security Style

by Lasthorseman Sun Dec 23rd, 2007 at 09:49:52 AM EST

http://eggmann.blog.is/blog/eggmann/entry/389611/

It is clear from this one woman's story that American hospitality ain't what it used to be.  It does not reflect upon the American people.  We have lost control of our government.  They just do not listen and corporate has turned the entire political show here into a propaganda industry.

I post this here then and encourage it's wide distribution across the international travel industry with the hope that maybe, just perhaps somebody might listen if their pocketbooks are hit hard enough.

The "progressive" Process of Historization

by Lasthorseman Sun Dec 2nd, 2007 at 09:05:06 PM EST

I do realize people might take me as having a radical world view.  This leads to misunderstandings and things one may say in the heat of the moment.  

Given the number and scope of multiple impending "the earth will end tomorrow" type scenarios one would think liberal, progressive, the party who wants to be diverse and include everybody would have a far more clear policy about banning people who participate on politically oriented blogs to learn and interact with other people but may have said something resulting in a ban.  I would at least expect an email, a reply to an email,perhaps even a warning but no.  A ban from a "progessive" site removes your menu items for posting comments and diaries.  Now I could fully understand lasting under 48 hours over at hannity.com.  I can even understand my ban from dailykos but now I can claim bans from both orange and green.  boomantribune is my latest accomplishment and the inclusiveness, the diversity, the kumbahya is just as much an illusion as the power of "the decider".  It is not a ban that disturbs me as much as the method.  Stellar way to garner support for a cause.

The market for confirmation is far greater than the market for information.

I have wasted far too much time trying to interact, learn, offer support or become active in things that are going to fall apart soon anyway.  Time now is better spent stocking food, searching for that survivable homestead and practice riding the Apocalyptic horse.  I leave it to the pontiffs, the experts, those who are so far more enlightened than myself to save the world.  See Apocalyptic horse above.

The Value of Alex Jones

by Lasthorseman Sat Nov 17th, 2007 at 10:28:45 PM EST

As American political lines become more absurd daily I thought I would bring up one of the lesser known minority factions of thought here, Alex Jones.
It is a name you will never hear from the mouths of either the abnormally jovial or the gravely serious anchors of American TV.

Running several websites under different names but with common themes featured stories are the ones not seen on CNN.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/
Now before I hear the hat line consider this.
http://www.projectcensored.org/
And this
http://people.csail.mit.edu/rahimi/helmet/

I have gotten so, so, so tired of TV telling me how Islamofacism affects my life I have shut off the TV.  And about those planes, hey, I am a peasant so I will never ever in my lifetime have any concerns about getting on airplanes.  Truth be told Islam only affects my life through far higher gas prices by destabilisation of the entire middle east.

Alex, while lacking lofty academic debate does offer a viewpoint so far removed from corporate media that embracing even some of it just might enable people to start reading between the lies.  I find it worth a check to ferret out subjects on mainstream media's blacklist!  Now that is value.

The Disease of Money

by Lasthorseman Sun Nov 11th, 2007 at 06:24:18 PM EST

I attended a dinner at a fine Italian restaurant with a group of older mostly retired people who made their money by long term stock market investments.  They seemed totally upbeat and enthusiastic about "the market".  Little do they know, I think.

I was sort of an outsider,having zero money and only attending because of my parents. We took our assigned seats as I met "John", a regional sales manager for an investment firm.  His mannerisms were, well, rehearsed but my first impression was so powerful I will remember it until I die.  The black emptyness of this man's soul literally shook me.  God, this man needs more joy in his life.  Two young children he has, yet the mundane conventional conversation topics prevailed.  As dinner progressed I sensed he knew not what to make of me, an engineer eating pollo continental style but talking about horses.  I didn't watch that "big football game", I was with the horses.

Horses are prey animals so in learning about them one learns also the ways of the predator, that's us, in their eyes.  After a solid year of untrained horse and untrained rider the joy of accomplished man horse communication far and away beats the black soul of a money manager.  

Since the dinner though the thoughts of money have even gone to my mother's head.  You see in this country having money simply means you are married to it.  It is actually not yours.  It belongs to those you hire to manage it, the lawyers you pay to craft documents you have no chance of understanding to protect "assets" that will change next year due to new laws and tax implications.  It is literally an entire industry of bullshit.

The real deal though is that even with an entire lifetime of saving, not spending and even my father collecting cans for the deposit here in America, land of the free and home of the brave you get squat from government.  All of this lifetime of savings is for the possibility of nursing home care.  The land of the free and home of the brave is searching through seven years of detailed financial transactions of its' senior citizens in order to enter the nursing home.

Now even if I croak, a penniless homeless person I intend petition the Lord himself one last return to earth to mount my Apoalyptic horse, snicker at all the soon to be smitten and say, "I told you so".

Islandization

by Lasthorseman Sat Oct 27th, 2007 at 10:17:39 PM EST

As an older engineer I have finally convinced my younger protege the value of islandization.

Islandization is the process by which experimental industrial computing stations are cut off from their respective corporate crap intranets.

Numerous times now the typical security sweeps, intranet address changes, corporate policy changes have wiped out the industrial functionality of embedded computers connected to the internet.  It is something as an engineer in charge of the control of experimental industrial processes I will never, ever in my lifetime recommend connectivity to the internet as a benefit.  A "operating system" which requires damned near daily "updates" is by any definition a piece of crap.  Once I,as an engineer have certified that the software does indeed do what I think I have programmed it to do I refuse to take the blame when is ceases to function simply because it "updated" itself.

Request Denied

by Lasthorseman Sat Oct 13th, 2007 at 08:53:53 PM EST

I expect soon to be banned from multiple US political boards as a result of, well perhaps vitriolic hate comments about Al Gore and the "excitement" of his winning the Nobel prize.

My endorsement of the current American democrat Congress agrees with the 11% approval rating.  Main issue non-impeachment.  So I feel gratified in attacking the main and undisputed icon of the establishment "left" Al Gore.

Yes, let us all buy most of our goods from a totalitarian police state with zero concepts of like, well, lead is a toxic substance.  Let us internationally proclaim China as a carbon emissions exempt state.
Let the rich buy organs transplanted from China's gulags.
Not I'm not excited in the least.

Kafka's Health Insurance Company

by Lasthorseman Wed Oct 10th, 2007 at 05:26:55 PM EST

Be happy over there in Europe where you still get something.  My latest story about the exponentially accellerating decay of everything in America relates to health insurance or rather the illusion that a company can present itself as a health insurer and get away with it.

http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=17827922&BRD=2731&PAG=461&dept_id=574902&r fi=%5C'

Today the benefit denial came in the mail for my wife, who is covered yet they say she is not.  They surely are taking the premium out of my paycheck.

Now the real scam comes in the form of government mandated health insurance.   This is new for mAssachusetts residents and most out our presidential selectees are coming up with similar proposals for the entire nation.

OK fine.  I'll simply stop going to the doctors.  I'll stop taking prescribed meds X,Y and Z therefore failing my patriotic duty in supporting big pharma.  That way I will relieve myself of the blood pressure piss-offedness of wasting a hour in a phone tree Hell only to be told "The company will review it in 15 days".  Homeopathic medicine here I come!

I guess under de-regulation Guido's Health Care must be affiliated with attourneys Dewy, Cheatem and How.

You Couldn't Pay Me

by Lasthorseman Fri Sep 28th, 2007 at 08:43:11 AM EST

You couldn't pay me to live in L.A., my daughter said.
The morals of the father did indeed pass to his children, and this father is proud once again.  Another highlight of my life came when my first daughter kicked the Army recruiters out of her store citing the store's no solicitations policy.

Her trip consisted of a pep rally for one of the big box retail chains, hence the choice LA the mecca of our shallow entertainment industry.  She said, people were rude(and we are from Boston), the food sucked, and it was "all city".  Mind you this very same family completely enjoyed our aufenhalt in Berlin.  Deep down inside this means she is now equipped with the intelligence to know the difference.

This father is so relieved she is home.  I had that Sept 21 Wall Street put options rumor in the back of my head when she told me the store was sending her to California.  I had visions of the false flag operation and the loss of a daughter.

The best part is just seeing how the child I raised held onto her morals and was not much impressed with the promotional hype of DVDs, video games and the entertainment industry and even DisneyLand.

I'm seeing young people in the 911 truth movement.  Maybe there is hope.

I have this image

by Lasthorseman Sat Sep 22nd, 2007 at 06:38:39 PM EST

I have this image in my head.
It comes from some years ago  at camp. We were firing different high power rifles into close range targets, about say 30 meters.  A plastic 2 liter container full of water explodes violently when hit with a .223 caliber AR-18.  The M1 Garand does the same thing only with more violence.  Both rifles do pack some serious kick so you best have the dam thing planted solidly on your shoulder.  Incredibly powerful, very loud and awesome destruction these weapons have.

On Friday here in the US we did have another "incident".

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/09/21/bomb.hoax/index.html

The incident was dutifully picked up by media who once again advanced the meme of "post 911 world".  At the press conference the cops said "She is lucky she complied with our instructions, otherwise she would be in the morgue".  The right wingers jumped upon the story citing how "normal" and "justified" the police were in their actions and some even questioned why the police did not "shoot first and ask questions later".

The "news" footage also featured state police toting some of the very same weapons I outlined before.  My concern is that in a crowded setting such as an airport who is to say these bullets don't pass through five people in addition to their target.

The right wing continues to sell security, even if that means at gunpoint.

Can I come live over there, I really am sick of this bullshit.

Bush to annouce troop withdrawal

by Lasthorseman Wed Sep 12th, 2007 at 07:19:22 AM EST

I can't even enjoy my first coffee in the morning anymore without being subject to the Satanic memes of mainstream American "media".  "Bush plans to announce 30,000 troop withdrawal from Iraq", yeah, plans to announce, and withdraw when.  Note the Orwellian doublespeak here, the planting in the minds of simpletons still half awake that there is some slight glimmer of hope.

After that "announcement" appeared I had a followup discussion with my son about marketing techniques and memes, he is a senior in high school.

My problem is that things have been so f**$ed up for so f#&%ing long that it has become institutionalized into every area of life.  United Health Care, one of the largest health insurance providers regularly scams people by denying benenfits causing the "insured" people to then fight back.  The company was sued under the RICO status several years ago but United with boatloads of money for legal fees has it buried in the courts for years.  And that is only one example of such widespread governmental non-functioning hubris which has spread from the federal all the way down to state and local governments.

My thought of the day is that some major disaster might well be the thing to wish for to bring relief from the torturous bullshit marketing points of TV.

Another 911 is over

by Lasthorseman Tue Sep 11th, 2007 at 05:31:13 PM EST

It is sad in two ways.  One is the sadness for people who died that day.  That is uncontested.  What is contested are the reasons why.

Since I have accepted as fact the official story is full of controversy, lies, cover-ups and fabrications I mourn for the loss of intelligence in the general media controlled American populace.  I see most of them as one looks upon ignorant children.  I see those who support it as arrogant children.  

There are growing numbers of us even though media never covers it.  We are not kooks or "hatters" but instead engineers, pilots, artists and writers.  Mainstream Americans, and we are mourning the death of America too.
Even granny knows.
http://www.grannywarriors.com/
Yes, there is a Southern slant to this but I am greatful for what they do know.

While most are glued to the propaganda of Iraq I'm taking an asset inventory of things we will need in the coming depression.  Who is going to loose which house, where can the kids go, you know normal stuff like that.

Can't wait for this day to be over and the depression of millions of lied to, mostly very good people will once again be over.

The other good thing is that winter is coming and the horsemanure pile won't smell as much.
