My Prayer to Jesus

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Mon, 26 Aug 2019 22:34:43 GMT  <== Philosophy ==> 

On Taylor Swift's new album, Lover, there is a song entitled, "Soon You'll Get Better". It features The Dixie Chicks.

In the song I heard, "... so, Jesus, now I pray to you..."

That line got me thinking about my prayer to Jesus today. I can find only one prayer, "Thy will be done."

Standing here, palms open to the sky, tears streaming, "Please, Jesus. I'm here. This body can move things. I can love people. Use me, as thou whilst."

5G Threat Truly Negligible

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Mon, 26 Aug 2019 14:46:17 GMT  <== Science/Technology ==> 

When you are on your own property, and your solar panels are far enough away to satisfy your concerns about EMR, then 5G poses a truly negligible threat.

The Femto cell for use in homes and businesses has a range of only a few tens of meters.
Likewise the pico cell, again tens of meters.

Micro and Metro cells are for urban areas, and they only reach a few hundred meters.

Radio waves in the upper part of the 5G band (the part that can provide high data speeds) are strongly attenuated by gases in the atmosphere, including water vapor. Except in extreme desert it is nearly impossible to use 5G frequencies over distances of 1000 meters.

A lot of people get their knickers in a twist (I'm looking at the shill "particle physicist" not-lady) because the power levels of 5G are higher. But this is precisely because they are absorbed so strongly.

In a densely populated urban area, there might be some basis for concern about exposure to these transmitters. In the country, not so much. Don't buy one and there is essentially nothing to worry about on your own land.

They Took the Mask Off

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Mon, 22 Apr 2019 06:44:44 GMT  <== Gloryroad ==> 

by George Potter

They took the mask off and
children burned,
and I ran outside
and vomited in the yard
and my dad picked the TV up
ripped it from the wall
and hurled it through a window
and said
in a dead cold voice:
"America has ended."

(He used to say "the American people"
and you could hear the pride.
Now he says "the American people"
and all you can hear is disgust.)

You were wrong, Mr. Elliot.
The world does not end
with a bang or a whimper.
Some worlds end
with the unheard screams
of children burning alive
inside a church.

Waco Justice 2019

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Fri, 19 Apr 2019 14:18:37 GMT  <== Politics ==> 

It's April 19, 2019, the twenty-sixth anniversary of the mass murder by US government agents at Waco, Texas. There has still been no Waco Justice:

I had an idea a while back that I almost wrote down, but couldn't bring myself to share, but it's back with a vengeance, so I've gotta get it off my chest. I doubt I can let Waco rest until every federal agent on the ground on April 19, 1993, and everyone in each chain of command, including Janet Reno and William Jefferson Clinton, is tried for crimes against humanity, and until those who are found guilty by a jury of twelve are executed for their crimes. I'm not going to hold my breath for this to happen, but there's no statute of limitations on murder, so we've got 20 or 30 years before the vermin die of natural causes. I can wait.


So what's the normal way to execute war criminals? A firing squad of course. And we can very easily turn it into a fund raiser for the survivors and family of the victims. Sell $100 raffle tickets to choose the riflemen and riflewomen who off the scum. I'd pay that in an instant for a chance to put a bullet into one of these baby killers. I'll bet there are at least 100,000 others who would join in. A cool $10 million. Give each shooter an army surplus rifle with an engraved label commemorating the festivities ("This weapon was used to execute Janet Reno on April 19, 2003"), and one cartridge to fire on the joyous day. Imagine showing your grandchildren one of these.

"The Gettysburg speech was at once the shortest and the most famous oration in American history... the highest emotion reduced to a few poetical phrases. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it. It is genuinely stupendous. But let us not forget that it is poetry, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it. Put it into the cold words of everyday. The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination -- that government of the people, by the people, for the people, should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in the battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves."

A blog reader clued me in to a chapter of Mike Vanderboegh's book, Absolved, that I had missed, since it wasn't in Codrea's index. I added it, and named it Chapter X: Wolverines.
