CLEAN COAL SAFE NUKES

'I don't have pet peeves.I have whole kennels of irritation." Whoopi Goldberg

"LIES,DAMN LIES & STATISTICS." famous quote from somewhere

aloha, howya doin? ready to rumble?
BTW
the latest SPARTACUS had waaaay less female nudity and plenty of of homoerotic TOM OF FINLAND style bodybuilder beefcake, fascinating...

"CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY" is a Lie, i don't care how many times O BOMBER repeats it or his minions.IT DOES NOT EXIST ANYWHERE ON EARTH,PERIOD.

SAFE NUCLEAR POWER
lets turn to O BOMBER'S "a new generation of safe,clean nuclear power plants" (per NYT) OMFG NOOOO! if you have been paying attention lately you will notice how the nuclear industry has adapted a new Frame of nuclear power as "GREEN". BULL F*CKING SHIT!
i have been waiting for someone to piss on this but i guess it falls to me.IMHO...SIGH.

WE ALMOST LOST DETROIT is a real book about a real nuclear failure which almost killed everyone in Detroit, not sure if this was before or after Three Mile Island.it was pointed out that if OSAMA BIN LADEN really wanted to hurt NYC there is an aging power plant upstream on the Hudson which, if detonated, would leave NYC uninhabitable for at least 7000 years...speaking of 9-11 before we moved to Santa Cruz we went online and found all the nuclear power plants, most of which are decommissioned with all/most of their nuclear waste onsite, and the route of the nuclear waste train which takes the less HOT Waste to Savannah S.C. nuke storage.
most power plants have a SAFE operating life of 20 years but this can be extended.
this is stream of thot scattershot so be patient.
1. whenever the DOE (Dept of Energy) sends in military teams to test nuclear reactor security or waste storage they succeed in penetrating it 80-90% of the time, this has been true for decades.

2. OUR TAX DOLLARS SUPPORT ALL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS.
a. THE INSURANCE COMPANIES REFUSE TO COVER NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, so our government does.
b.O BOMBER WANTS TO FINANCE 80% of power plant construction costs with loan guarantees and take repayment from any alleged profits.(estimated costs about $6Billion per plant so the current $18.5 B would balloon to $54B-for more plants & more jobs?)
b1. rarely, if ever, has any of these plants turned a profit.
b2.why are we financing Private Companies anyway, what FREE MARKET?
b3. nuclear plant construction has RARELY BEEN WITHIN BUDGET and NEVER DELIVERED ENERGY AT THE PROMISED LOW LOW PRICES!
b4.hullo YUCCA MTN? O BOMBER WANTS TO FORM A COMMISSION TO STUDY NUKE WASTES DISPOSAL..another commission?again???

RELATED NUKES TANGENT,
before the ongoing Yucca Mtn fiasco my fave idea was the idea to set up a Mountain of Doom Forbidden Zone site atop Area 51 with huge black concrete pyramids atop the wastes and tall black spikes topped with skulls warning people away in a variety of ways, the black concrete would absorb heat and make it unfriendly to human exploration. neat eh? since some NUCLEAR WASTE IS TOXIC FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS...unforseen events might occur.SIGH.
BTW 2
did you know that most nuke power plants in KALIpornia are sited atop quake faultlines? the one in Sacramento, the one next to the hiwhway in Eureka and the one next to the highway in San Luis Obispo which is bult atop THREE FAULTS & STILL OPERATING! HUGE SIGH...

3.i read this is the paper one day, wasn't even looking for it,
ALL CURRENT NUCLEAR REACTORS ROUTINELY-i repeat ROUTINELY VENT RADIOACTIVE STEAM AS PART OF THEIR NORMAL OPERATIONS.i did not know that. i know about the puny fines for dumping untreated radioactive water but steam..into the air,ah...
4. this NUCLEAR FIASCO has BIPARTISAN SUPPORT,imagine that.

5.O BOMBER, being a True American, is counting on New Technology to solve Old Problems.i think they are called Pellet Reactors and they are indeed safer, in theory, then what we have now.problem is i don't think a FULL BLOWN PELLET REACTOR IS OPERATING YET ANYWHERE IN THE USA.so what we have is theory and small scale demos masquerading as Billion dollar solutions to infinitely dangerous problems.

6.no, i don't like a NUCLEAR NAVY either. remember the USS Thresher, mysteriously crashed to the bomb of the ocean...i want to make a novice juggling with chainsaws analogy but can't think of anything more dangerous to humankind that nukes, juggling supernovae maybe?

7. i had something positive to say about all this.hmmmmm...
a. the Japanese want to set up Solar Mirrors in low earth orbit and beam microwaves down to ground base stations, TERRIBLE IDEA BUT AN EXCELLENT WEAPON...SIGH.
b. why is nobody talking about WAVE POWERED POWER STATIONS??? they are testing them in Europe.no cloudy days, no windless days, the waves run 24/7 with predictable High & Low tides. not dependent on foreign exotic technology...JUST ASKIN.

if i had anything else to add i already forgot it.
peace out

NO THEME TODAY

"Nobody's is interested in sweetness and light." Hedda Hopper (famous last century gossip monger)

RIP Howard Zinn 87 ( people's Historian)
J D SALINGER 91 (famous author)

PAGANI, many thanx 4 giving me hope in/for Humanity. YOU ARE A JEWEL..

@ PENII
penises look funny, like dead fruit, not at all Manly unless aroused & humongous (thanx 4 nothing Big John Holmes) , besides if women can be displayed as slaves & trophies does it not diminish men to be also shown equally powerless?
"THE PICKLE SHOT" in LEAVING SARAH MARSHALL was funny and i think we can do more. i think penises on the whole are Funny, especially sunburnt ones...i think the fact most directors are men, ditto producers.
INFORMAL SURVEY..I WATCH TOO MUCH TV, GUILTY AS CHARGED late at nite i have taken to watching the boring skin flicks/series and have broken it down into three categories
1.tits only, usually implants
2,tits and female crotch, usually shaved.
3.tits ( natural mostly), crotch and penises.
the third category is usually better made and more entertaining and usually has a FEMALE WRITER/DIRECTOR! i would tell you the names of the better shows but its in short term memeory not storage, just a thot.
BTW JESUS and the others were crucified NAKED as was the Roman custom, the first anti penis bias maybe?

@POLITICS
after watching Pres.O BOMBER issue his STATE OF THE UNION address Soul Mate declared him a MUPPET, i like the image.

i cringed last week to hear O BOMBER declared "a progressive president like Clinton" file this under PEOPLE UNCLEAR OF THE CONCEPT. SIGH.
SINGLE PAYER HEALTHCARE=PROGRESSIVE the crap they are serving now NOT.
the daily fishwrap here (The Senile) declared healthcare on " life support" above the fold this morning and the lead story was the Sheriff's doing more and more 'peaceful evictions'.
once the rate was ONE EVICTION EVERY SEVEN MINUTES 24/7 i don't know of any wimpy measures O BOMBER has done to lessen that.u will recall a prior blog where i mentioned that the WALL STREET BAILOUT could have paid off EVERY MORTGAGE IN AMERICA, that's what a PROGRESSIVE PRESIDENT WOULD'VE DONE...HUGE HUGE SIGH.

BTW
i know i promised photos and artwork in 09 and as usual i am running behind schedule,
I APOLOGIZE & I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN.it will happen...

something else...the sun is shining for the second day and i am getting distracted by the dust motes in the sun beams, magpie brain as MY EX (*) would say.

@AVATAR when it comes out on DVD or Blu Ray i propose a MASH UP VIDEO WATCHING GAME every time you can recognize a visual reference, like the rabid dogs from RESIDENT EVIL or the Thai cliffs from MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN take a jello shot or a thematic element from DANCING WITH WOLVES, A MAN CALLED HORSE, LITTLE BIG MAN et al. you get the idea right?

BTW2
i have been assigned by an unnamed county commish to create a dispassionate crip-centric digest/listserv.yeah right me, if i don't get kicked off soon i will give you the address. i have become the DESIGNATED NERD since the real Nerd died 18 months ago, good people he.

BTW 3
what is it with famous white men and their penises (lets ignore the NBA & rap for a moment)
ELIOT SPITZER, JOHN EDWARDS, BILL CLINTON and what is it with America that what good deeds they have done are thus erased??? okay Clinton was/is a lifelong SEXUAL PREDATOR and SPITZER is a Creep but he was first to warn us about the ass reaming Wall Street had in store for us and John Edwards...SIGH,what can i say?

AVATAR REVUE

"They steal our dreams and sell them back to us."
70s NYT headline & hippies lament

it was BEAUTIFUL...all that plus a paraplegic ex Marine action hero.SM thot there was too much battle rattle.

mega

ODD TANGENTS

aloha, no themes today just stuff.

"Rules, like legs, are made to be broken." 70s Teamsters thugs slogan

"APE RAPES NUN,FLEES IN UFO."
novel title about crass tabloid journalism from the 70s, lil did they know.

KID$
my Medicare massuese, 48, worries about her daughter, just turned 12, being sexualized by the relentless media and her friends in school.being a dancer and having no problem with public nudity she is nonetheless bothered by JUICY across 8 year old bottoms ( me too). in related non news, i read that Miley Cyrus's kid sister wants to start a lingerie line for tweens...and STEPHANIE MILLER (liberal radio host), has more than once mentioned SASHA OBAMA'S pending menses...HUGE SIGH.

GOT SKIN?
no i am not a big fan of CENSORSHIP..JOCK STURGIS???
sorry Brain Fart, for days i have trying to remember the name of the Bay Area version of MAPLETHORPE.STURGIS went to nude beaches and took pictures of nude children, with their parents permission & they got copies, which some people considered TOO EROTIC (bless their dirty lil minds) and whenever he had a gallery showing they sued him for Kiddie Porn...they always Lost but the cash strapped artist ultimately lost.i have seen some of the pictures and went to a gallery showing,PERVERTS, i have seen photos of bacon or chocolate that were more Erotic.IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE PICTURES OR NAKED PEOPLE...DON'T LOOK!

anyway, think i lost my point on Censorship or maybe i actually made one.
blind quote, someone once said "The definition of a prude is someone who thinks you're having more Fun than they are." probably GBS? HUGE SIGH.

YE GOD$
sometimes i watch the religious channels, when i am Too Bored,seems like most of the New Tes has been excised in favor of OT jerimiads and Revelations apocalypses.JESUS H.CHRIST, talk about Censorship. JC said to make Easy Money off the spiritually deluded? musta missed that one...SIGH & CRY.

BLOOD LOSS

"The basic fact about human existence is not that it is a tragedy, but that it is a bore." H L Mencken

aloha, kinda scrambling for a focus today but i have errands to run today and soon.

CGI SPLATTER
saw SPARTACUS the new series on STARZ last nite....CNN was irate last week before the show even aired. hmmm, wonder why?
hope it was the graphically enhanced blood spray they objected to and not the loads of full frontal (except penii, penises) nudity.
i hope it was the blood. how do i describe it GRATUITOUS i think but fairly realistic.death and dismemberment is neither pretty nor neat. THE WILD BUNCH, "300", the chambara (samurai) series BABYCART IN.... all were bloody messes but this was before the super reds CGI era. (i think it is well made enough to maybe be a minor hit, it is no ROME and often i looked past the nudity or splatter to admire the obvious budget conscious green screen composite shots like in GLADIATOR.wonder how soon it will take to wear out it's welcome???)

BLOOD LOSS
an unblinking finale single shot in an arthouse classic VIVA LA MUERTE back in the 60's, a steer has its throat cut with a chainsaw then is casually eviscerated before a naked woman climbs into the blood carcass to sprout some artsy gibberish, real steer and real blood.to me this came across as unbearably pretentious..what is it about times of war which bring out the worst in us? in the 60s it was nihilistic media and now it is death dealing video games, if those digital deaths were real both my sons would be serving multiple life terms in SuperMax prisons.

THUG LIFE
there is an ongoing gang war raging in Salinas,shootings and stabbings are an almost daily occurrence.there is some spillover into Santa Cruz County of course, we have beaches and UCSC hotties. real blood and real people.the Salinas government has a plan to stop some of this, give the gang bangers jobs, this has worked in other cities like Boston and Sacramento but in this bleak economy the public outcry was all too predictable.
or we could send them to the military like the skinheads to learn the proper use of automatic weapons and explosives...

i wish i could wrap this all up neatly but i fear this is just another loose end in our mortality and deliberations...i got almost no real sleep last nite, dreamed about MY EX (*) in a 25 year old Tea Leoni's body letting my red MG (my first car) get stolen in Frisco.woke up disoriented and not sure which bed or where i was. this is shaping up to be a rare bad day,hope not SIGH.

NO POLITICS TODAY...

"Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage."
HL Mencken (one of my more caustic heroes)

aloha from "PARADISE"
yesterday was BEAUTIFUL, a chamber of commerce grandiosity. i spent a good part of it looking for black cargo pants, i settled for dark blue after driving a a half hour to nearby Watsonville.even Soul Mate went for a loong healthy walk, WONDERFUL.

GREENERY
it is supposed to rain steadily for three straight days so i went out and fertizled our plants with time release plant food, we have a palm tree growing in our backyard and the Easter Lilies are already in bloom, our robust camelias are thriving and flowering and our odd collection of succulents, most of which were abandoned when a nabe moved in with his kids, are spreading happily.

@ AMBIEN
PAGANI,
i was unaware that ambien made George HW Bush psychotic, as if he needed any help, i think one of the congressional Kennedys was caught sleep driving and Tiger liked bottomfeeder ambien sex...me, i had happy and refreshing dreams for a few nights but my days were a grey listless slog thru bitter reality and it was worsening so i stopped, back on the insomnia treadmill i guess...

@LOVE
SOUL MATE is watching MEET THE PRESS behind me and plans an 'exciting day' of CSPAN viewing while i wallow in mindless football, still haven't seen AVATAR yet but it's playing in 3D in Watsonville just off the freeway.after almost 18 years we are still deeply passionately in love despite everything around us in this...WHOOPS,TRYING TO STAY POSITIVE...hmmmm.

my kids are relatively healthy and MY EX (*) is still herself ditto my good friend G MAN,
nobody i love has died or 'self liberated' lately...my antique PC is still steaming along (steampunk model 000019P) and i think what's left of my mind/brainstem are still functioning.i have TONS OF QUOTES as yet unused :) and no shortage of opinions to go with them, hopefully i will not tax your patience TOO MUCH (?).

i am literally at a loss for words, mark the date (smile).

is it just a nasty disaster making

THE MATRIX BUBBLES

"There is no satisfaction in hanging a man who does not object to it." George Bernard Shaw

SIGH
the sun is shining, briefly, yet i sit under an existential dark cloud.

this week a lawyer spoke about her book ORDINARY INJUSTICE which reminded me how many times Napoleoni's ROGUE ECONOMICS makes reference to THE MATRIX and even KEITH O'S special comment makes the linkage.
let's look at THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA & POLLS, the GOP Moneywhores parrot the usual line about " WE HAVE THE BEST...IN THE WORLD" which is patently untrue yet why do people believe it?
when SOUL MATE & i lived in Berkeley we had a nabe who had fled Nazi persecution to America. we told her something ugly about american politics, i forget what exactly..her comment was something like OH NO, I COULDN'T LIVE WITH MYSELF IF THAT WAS TRUE...

is it that simple?
do we Not want to see, to understand? is it easier to just wallow in ignorance and cocooned in celebrity gossip rather than face the world warts and all?if all you rely on is the MSM then how are you ever to know external reality? i once worked with a guy and all he watched was 70s sitcoms, no news & no newspapers (except sports). often feel like a madman ranting on the highway as people whiz past obliviously listening to their iPods and talking on their cells.
as Keith O & the late Mario Savio say, sometimes you just have to be a bit of sand in the gears of The Matrix (nee The Machine).

just pass the sandy noose and let me be...

BLOWBACK

"No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking." Voltaire
HUGE SIGH, I WISH...

aloha again,
blackouts, huge thunderstorms and lightning rolling in regular as commuters,
it has been quite a week.
i sit here, berobed, trying to distinguish between the symptoms of carpal tunnel and Lyme disease, either way i am a mess.so far i have not done anything stupid or crazed due to ambien, on the other hand my insomnia does not seem much improved either.but enuff about me..

ROGUE ECONOMICS by Loretta Napoleoni c.2008

saw her on CSPAN bout 18 months ago and she was impressive, her book was written before The Great Meltdown so is somewhat prophetic and very sad in terms of human suffering.the skinny is that for 30 years we have been told BUSINESS IS GOOD & GOVERNMENT IS BAD, she quotes Reagan's I'M HERE FROM THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP YOU.she shows this is all crap by taking a microscope to the failed Russian Economy and the booming Red Chinese.a mistake i seen common among TV pundits is to equate Capitialism with Democracy like Siamese twins WRONG!!!

GOT $$$
Capitalism in Russia gave rise to the oligarchs and the Russian Mafia who filled in the spaces left unregulated during the kleptocratic transfer/looting of the old Soviet Union. not surprisingly the old KGB merely switched hats and bought better suits to stay in control. think of AIG looted by spies & criminals instead of Old Money plutocrats and criminals... its been a couple of months since i read this so i'm trying to do it justice okay? one of my few GOP friends ,whose worldview is even darker than mind (imagine that) swears by how great this book is when not forecasting his own death by 2020.SIGH & CRY..

TIDBITS
she proposes two different ways of doing government/business...
WESTERN
we take an idealized society like Sparta or Athens democracy and we strive to repeat or achieve this,often failing due to impracticality or corrupt society,whatever.

EASTERN
chaos theory, say anything to get thru the moment or day. i was impressed that even not knowing either Japanese or Chinese she got to the kernel of Asian thot processes, of which i am steeped (as i'd like to believe) e.g. "HAI" in Japanese is often mistranslated as YES but it actually means YES,I AM LISTENING -POLITEY. she even refers to a man who wrote a book about his failures trying to do biz in China over ten years. BRILLIANT!
she even considers the shift of meaning when a westerner says NATION STATE & when an easterner hears MARKET STATE. China is NOT a NATION STATE it is a timeless insular arrogant culture with a looong memory of its colonial abuse and forced humiliating opium addiction.

"The Fascist State organizes the nation,but leaves a sufficient margin of liberty to the individual; the latter is deprived of all useless and possibly harmful freedom, but retains what is essential: the deciding power in this question cannot be individual, but the state alone."
thus Mussolini defined his Fascist State but this could've been said by Mao or Stalin.

Napoleoni posits that the state is the coffer of power & politics even as it manipulates the "free market" to encourage commerce. she says the only way the state has to respond to irrational cries for liberty is violence-Iran,China,Tibet,the Taliban,Freedom Zones anything undercutting is monolithic authority.
and like a speeding train hitting the brakes on a dangerous curve or pre derailment, even when the Wall Street Economy returns it takes 3 to 5 years for the Main Street Economy to thaw, so the lumpen teabag stoked displeasure of being outsourced and downsized will continue, just as i predicted before reading this marvelous & often depressing book.she speaks at length about market economics and white slavery...

speaking of slavery, once every seven minutes STILL a house is foreclosed on.

"If you've got a big mouth and you're controversial,you're going to get attention." Simon Cowell
amen to that.

aloha, got a perscription for ambien for my insomnia. even the ever tolerant SM is complaining about my pain wracked nightly dervishing...

HAITI
sad to say this horror does carry the same weight as Katrina for me. is tht jingoistic???
it's not that i don't care or i don't feel their pain but despite the similarities Haiti is not New Orleans,during Katrina there was a dead black guy outside the Super Bowl in the same model wheelchair i used for a dozen years SHIVER.

as some of you may know, when not chiding the universe for not being up to snuff i volunteer for a couple of county commissions. one of my duties is liason for disabilites disaster preparedness. who cares for crips doing a major earthquake or tsunami? what about their meds or power for ventilators? cold boxes for insulin? food & water? FEMA has even begin a list of crip activists and i have signed on, just in case...

what have you done to prepare for disaster?

we have gallons of bottled water,canned goods, tools to dig ourselves out, mylar blankets in the car along with those five year fresh energy bars and water packets, tools for breaking windows & windshields, even our mobile home park has some half assed solutions to dig the senile and fragile elderly out and get them to nearby shelter.

TEA BAG THE DOG?

"I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!" crying blonde tea bag protester on TV
(blog title from WAGE THE DOG, a prophetic film)

okay. okay you kinda know what to expect from me on this topic,
but oddly enough recently i have felt something else PITY.

TEA BAG THIS
i know i know the Tea Bag protest is based on Dick Army et al PR astroturfing manipulation of a racist nostalgia but a lot of thse people are in Real Pain.the world is changing too fast for them and its not the 50s anymore when class roles and sexual stereotypes were set in stone and darkies knew their place, obviously NOT the White House.now putting a chocolate figurehead in charge does Nothing to change this oligarchy,witness the Wall Street bonuses- as -usaul mega bonuses and the Frankenstein fat cat created so called HEALTHCARE REFORM which manages to do neither...HUGE HUGE SIGH.

CLASS WARFARE & IMMIGRATION
...soon white people will be just another minority in KALI pornia, the UC system already had to jury rig the admission rules to prevent it from being an ALL ASIAN as many were set to enter with better than a 4.0 GPA, what happened to equality,hard work & fair play?

the wheels have come off the engines of destruction and BIG LIE MEDIA, our friend PANDORA has described America as CRUMBLING,even in her mounting prison of paranoia she can still see the Truth.(i.e.things i agree with SIC).the Supremes are set to rule on whether corporations can spend endless funds on campaign financing, the death knell of our so called Democracy is about to toll...the naked greedhead truth of who owns congress has been revealed with the Healthcare Reform fiasco, the people be damned..for all misery & eternity.

we want single payer, a public option and Medicare For All and we get...mandates,triple fees for pre existing conditions,a tax on union health plans and the same old sh*t in new packaging.
even PBS has a docu showing how other industrialized countries managed to do this without leaving 40,000 strewn across hospital morgues nationwide annually.
WHERE IS THE F*CKING OUTRAGE? THIS SH* IT DEFINITELY not OKAY!

i want my country back too except it has never been mine or anyone i know who was not super rich.40 acres and a mule never arrived, beside the land was probably stolen from the Native Americans anyway.

A TANGENT
ALEXANDER THE GREAT & THE GORDIAN KNOT
i was taught that Alexander cut the Gordian Knot to show how simplicity beat complexity, Bull sh*t, the knot was a sacred language just as the quipa knots of the Inca and the Celtic knots represent and reveal a Sacred Mystery.only the louts of the present destroy the treasures of the past...TEA BAG ANYONE? , hemlock tea methinks.enjoy?

thanx for your concern, even MY EX (*) and G Man were worried by our prolonged unusual silence, router death plus we were both VERY ILL not the flu exactly but some crappy viral fragments apparently as our herbal anti virals seemed effective in neutralizing it at times.
i have some notes i have made here among the clutter..one comes to mind immediately.

GET FLUENT IN FEAR
this was screaming cable news headline after the Xmas crotch bomber attempt.no, it's not FAUX NEWS someone else apparently.drunk drivers kill @40,000 people a year and we are apparently okay with this, the normal flu kills a few less and we are mostly okay with this...this sounds cruel but the deaths of 300 plus people on an airliner due to demented fundamentalists on a slow news weekend???? Sorry but 9-11 CHANGED NOTHING FOR ME.3000 dead in te Twin Towers equals our 3000 dead soldiers in Iraq,are we even yet? how much more blood of Oil & Empire?
