Phoenix Marie Update...

As the ongoing effort to raise money for Mrs. Marie continues, some updates are called for. She can say it better than I, so here it is in it's entirety...

Hello, this is Phoenix.
I wanted to let you know that the URL for the fund-raising page has been changed. It is now found here:

We were attacked by a disgruntled artist and have gained legal representation as a result, and also Jody Elliot is no longer associated with the fundraiser and her photo sale is expired now. There are also updates on myspace coming, and that is here:

Kambriel is holding a special sale this week only on her ONE OF A KIND page for me as well, here is an ad for that:

Funny, looking to the right, your haunted trashcan, lol, I am haunted tearoom all over the net. ;0 Thank you so much for posting this, someone just randomly came across it and sent me your link to update, I didn't know about it, so I am really touched, bless you!

Please send email to myspace with contact info and I will update when my haunted tearoom gallery and website is filled and the blog is up and running.

Bless again,

Tis' a shame to let a girl like this go to waste... Help her out!

My Favorite Speech, or Whatever You Want to Call It...

"Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice ... you don’t.

You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying ... lobbying, to get what they want ... Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want ... they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that ... that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting **** by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? They want obedient workers ... Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it ... they’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fuckin' place.

It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people ... white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means ... continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a **** about you. They don’t give a **** about you ... they don’t give a **** about you. They don’t care about you at all ... at all ... at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their **** everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it..."

Secret Bible Code on US Military Weapons?

A company which supplies rifle sights to the US Military has been found to be coding secret Bible verses onto soldiers weapons. These rifle sights, used in Iraq and Afghanistan, have bible verse references coded into the stamped serial number. By following these references, it leads back to specific verses from Revelations, and other books of the bible.

Anything that could be construed as proselytizing or favoring any religion by the US military in a war zone is against military rules. This is intended to prevent religious overtones in their operations and eleminate the appearance of being "crusaders" for any religion, thus removing fuel for implications of religious warfare.

The company, founded by a devout Christian, denies any wrong-doing.

What I want to know is this... Why would a devout Christian found a company which supplies articles for weapons of war?

Here is a story on ABC news concerning this topic...

The Man Who Poisoned The Earth?

Sometimes, it is said a single person can be the thing that makes a difference. This difference may not always be for the better. Thomas Midgley Jr. was an American chemist who mostly worked during the period of the 1920's to the 1930's. He is most famous for his chemical contributions to the consumer lifestyle we take for granted today.

Without Mr. Midgley, we would have no common everyday items such as CFC aerosol spray cans, freon, leaded gasoline, or any of a thousand different ozone depleting chemical combinations. Nor would we have had any chemicals with the words "Tetra-Ethyl" in front of them. (My favorite is "Tetra-Ethyl Death"). Yes, without him, we would not have free-floating lead in the air, or the chemical stew found along country roads and in lakes, now slowly making it's way into the human gene pool.

It has been said, Mr. Midgley has been the one single organism in history that has had the greatest impact on our environment and atmosphere. Though the world was blinded by the exploits of science at the time, they should have seen it coming. While he was developing his Ethyl gasoline compound, the workers at the manufacturing plant were struck by a series of hallucinations, illness, insanity, and death. Mr. Midgley was himself poisoned by lead, forcing him to take a year off work to recouperate.

His inventions eventually killed him. He contracted Polio and was confined to bed, using a system of ropes and pulleys he devised to help lift him. He became entangled and died in 1940.

He remains part of the infernal order of inventors and techo-wizards, whose seemingly magical inventions have doomed the world to an uncertain future.

Soccer Anyone?

This article is somewhat off-topic, but morbidly fascinating. Over the New Year's holiday, among the many murders in Juarez, what is developing into the next front on the war against terror, a man's body was found. This man was found, his body cut into seven pieces, and his face removed and stitched onto a soccer ball. This ball was found near the City Hall. The event was most likely done while he was STILL ALIVE.

A creepier demise could not be thought up by Hitchcock.

A very macabre beginning to the new year for us in living in border regions. We can only hope the US does not see more of this violence spill across. Much of it already has, but it is conveniently ignored by the mass media and is seen as being a strictly Mexican problem.

The Real Death Star?

Scientists are in disagreement over the threat a local star presents to our solar system. They do, however, agree that it will very likely explode in the near future. This star, T Pyxidis, is a pair of stars in close orbit, called a Binary Star. One of this pair, is a White Dwarf, and is siphoning off material from the larger star at a cataclysmic rate.

It is widely accepted that this smaller star is at or near what is known as the Chandrasekhar Limit. This limit is the absolute maximum of matter the small dwarf star can hold without collapsing under it's own gravity. When this star collapses, it will form a Supernova, and destroy everything in the vicinity in a blinding explosion that will light up the sky.

The trouble is some scientists feel we are within the danger zone for this explosion. It is located 3200 light years from Earth, but if the explosion is poweful enough, it could strip away elements of our upper atmosphere, such as our Ozone Layer, on the side facing the explosion. This can lead to a reaction within the atmosphere, wherein all life eventually fails on the Earth's surface.

The scientific community is in disagreement over the danger presented by this small star. But one thing is for certain, when it goes, it will be the show of a lifetime (possibly ALL lifetimes!).

Here is a Popular Science article on this issue...

New Blasphemy Law Takes Effect in Ireland...

In a striking return to Conservative (e.g. medieval) Values, Ireland has signed into Law new requirements making it illegal to say blasphemous or derogatory comments about religion. Violators can be fined up to 25,000 Euros. This includes speech, articles, comments, parodies, satires and any other form of communicative media.

This is an unusual development in a country that has been noted for it recent progress in liberal arts and science.

Here is what ABC News has to say...

Man Dies in Fire Pit Roasting Pig

As a weird beginning to the New Year, an Arizona man dies in his fire pit as he is roasting a pig for a New Year's party. Authorities suspect he may have been drinking, and somehow slipped into the three foot pit. He was unable to climb out due to the heat, and slowly roasted to death. By the time his family heard his cries, it was too late. They are understandably, quite distraught.

Here is a news story on it...
