Here you will find a series of curmudgeonly commentaries that I've posted from atop my rickety old soapbox for the past few years. And yes, there are indeed political rantings, so place your seats in the upright position and fasten your seat belts .... it may be a bumpy ride.


Tinfoil Hats and Expectations

I haven't posted anything in over a month simply because I've been waiting with bated breath for something to happen worth commenting upon,. Nada. Zilch. Zero! And I can only hold my breath for so long.

The Conspiracy Conduits were jammed with dire prognostications, pettifoggeries and prophesies …. all of which bode direly for us in the immediate future. We were even given a couple of exact dates to circle on our respective calendars, September 27th, 2011 and then March 2nd, 2012. The first one was supposedly the date when most all of the U.S. elite political class minions would be in not-so-secret bunkers deep beneath Denver's International Airport facilities. What was to happen? Well, how about a "false flag" episode.

Now for those of you who are not prone to layering the inside of your Panama Hats with tinfoil or maintain a yearly subscription to Alex Jones, a False Flag Episode (attack) is an engineered geopolitical ploy used to arouse the citizenry into a fighting frenzy. It is the necessary prelude to WAR!

For this latest "secret conspiracy", the candidates ran the gauntlet from the sudden admission that Planet X was indeed coming close enough to earth to create severe catastrophic damage, to a group of "White Hats" in the military staging a coup. And fanning the flames of all this was a furtive former Forbes editor residing in Japan named Benjamin Fulford. He was the self-styled spokesman for an Asian group of assassins called The White Dragon Society, who were in the process of bringing to justice that shadowy group of Bad Guys called Illuminati. Even Shock Jocks Jeff Rense and Alex Jones were pussycats compared with Fulford's utterings.

Oh, but wait … there's more! Na-aaa, that's enough.

So with my expectations on a higher state of alert than my immune system after a dose of antibiotics, I sat glued to the World Wide Web awaiting the latest version of Armageddon (right after these brief commercial announcements.)

It's now March 24th. The politicos are safely home. The White Dragon Society is nowhere to be seen and no dreaded Brown Dwarf Star has appeared in the overhead night-time sky. Frankly, every time there is one of the "for sure" prophecies based on a specific date, I'm reminded of my favorite cartoon shown below. Meantime, I'm going to cancel my subscription to the "Time Monk" WebBot series of predictions. As for knowledge of the future …. as Clark Gable once opined, "Frankly, my dear, I just don't give a damn."
