"The House of Representatives yesterday approved legislation that will put in place a complete ban on taxpayer funding of abortions that ensures abortions are not directly funded in any federal governmental program or department. The White House says President Obama would veto it."

Obama Promises To Enact Gun Control Laws “With Or Without Congress”

Steve Watson
29 January 2014

"Among a myriad of promises to create and sign laws using his magic executive order pen, the president vowed during last night’s State of The Union Address to pass more strict gun control laws, even if it means bypassing the Congressional process."


I kept hearing the applause. For the rest of it, I just didn't want to listen…

Alan Caruba's post on the State of the Union speech includes a cartoon that I sympathize with totally.

If only instead of all that applause, the good folk remaining in Congress had all just walked out…

""There is no doubt that the actions of Edward Snowden may have damaged the security interests of several nations in the short term," Mr Solhjell and fellow MP Snorre Valen said in a joint statement.

"We are, however, convinced that the public debate and changes in policy that have followed in the wake of Snowden's whistle-blowing has contributed to a more peaceful, stable and peaceful world order.
"His actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading principle in global security policies.""

"…today, the veteran police officers, experienced physicians, paramedics, nurses, social workers and clergy linked to the case speak of being ‘attacked’ by demons, profoundly shaken and left with little choice but to believe that ‘something’ possessed the 32-year-old mother-of-three and the rented home in which she, her children and her mother, lived from November 2011 until May 2012."

Vulgarity is vulgarity, but the satanic links to what is overcoming the hour remain…

Which is merely to say, common is as common does, but the onslaught of the present vileness has a source…

And in a world where many are too 'educated' to admit that a source exists…

Anything can happen.

And will.

what happened in Atlanta

A commute turns into a nightmare -- and boredom -- as storm paralyzes Atlanta

Alexis Stephens
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
28 January 2014

"Take rush-hour traffic in Atlanta, add inches of slushy, slick mess and the result was gridlock on interstates in all directions. For hours, roads and interstates have remained jammed stranding some drivers, and there were too many wrecks to count.

“We’ve got major jams on all of the interstates in Atlanta,” said Doug Turnbull in the AM750 and 95.5FM News/Talk WSB Traffic Center.

Late Tuesday night, the Georgia State Patrol said troopers had investigated 940 crashes resulting in one death and 104 injuries."


"Apocalyptic" Atlanta (Independent Journal Review)

"Lot of people stuck [on the roads] since yesterday afternoon…" (WSB-TV 8:19 a.m.) No food, no drink, no facilities…not a lot of fun, to paraphrase Mark Arum…

"Gov. Nathan Deal says the National Guard is being called in to help stranded motorists." (WSB-TV) 7:43 a.m.

"MARTA reports that bus and rail service will not resume until 10 a.m." (WSB-TV) 5:50 a.m.

"Atlanta Public Schools reports that they are down to just 5 students still in transit from school to home. The children have been in buses overnight. Channel 2's Richard Elliot found a stranded APS bus with no students but an exhausted driver." (WSB-TV) 5:18 a.m.

"Numerous roads throughout the state are temporarily unpassable…" (WSB-TV) 1:35 a.m.

"“I know every school day is precious, but they shouldn’t have had school today.”" (Quoted at Wunderground 28 January 2014. Must-see: video of adults trying to push a school bus)

And even a Facebook page: SnowedOutAtlanta (which appears to have required a log-in, so will not post)

"The stories coming out of Atlanta are crazy — people are abandoning their vehicles on the road, a baby was born in a car stuck in traffic, and 800 kids are stranded in schools as snow completely paralyzes the city.

The scene resembles the giant traffic jam depicted on "The Walking Dead" after Atlanta is taken over by zombies." (Business Insider 7:55 p.m. 28 January 2014)

Lot of folk did not make it home last night. That includes children at schools, parents trying to get to the schools and workers.

I left work at 1:00 p.m. Dressed more formally than my usual jeans, I knew I could not navigate the sidewalk going downhill to the nearest Marta rail station, so I waited the [unpredictable even in good weather] bus. The traffic, already, intense.

After a few minutes, I decided to walk to the next rail station up, a mere three blocks, and level ground all the way.

Halfway there, I found a doorway to wait a bus more comfortably. The snow was already hard to walk in, although a great many people (with more solid footwear) were traipsing in groups up and down the sidewalks. The homeless, divided between those wrapped in blankets and those practiced mournful stares, panhandling, and the cheerful, oh what fun folk who strode up and down the same blocks, eyelashes and hair white with snow.

No bus. I'd heard already about a fire in the Five Points rail station—whether or not that meant no rail service could not be determined—but at the point I realized I was becoming too cold to wait longer (too, seeing that SUV slide as it went from wait to inch forward to inch to the next stop had something to do with the decision)—and still no bus in sight (some forty minutes of waiting for a route that typically runs every thirty)—I tried again to head to the next station…

Only to find enough ice had already formed to make even stepping from the curb into the street in heels iffy.

I headed back to work, where an individual (I will call him a client of our 'business' and leave it at that) who providentially had stopped by for a pit stop on his trek from downtown to his home less than two miles away agreed to let me join him.

We may have left for the next portion of the mile and a quarter journey to where I could get out and walk (the bus ride lets me out on Peachtree St., so we agreed that would be more seamless for his own trek homeward) around two-thirty: I arrived home at 4:15 p.m. The city covered is twelve or thirteen blocks.

To say the traffic crawled says nothing.

At least one of our staff circled around the gridlocks, late in the afternoon, then returned to stay overnight. Another, who lived in one of the nearest northern suburbs, had not yet made it home when I heard from a co-worker after six p.m. She had left earlier than I had—perhaps as early as noon.

Local affiliates pre-empted the national news last night and this morning. I wakened around five a.m. and turned on the news. And yes, a lot of people did not make it home last night…

It is, however, other items—the conspiracy theory items—that would make an excellent thriller out of the whole.

Read between the lines, as always…

(Readers should remember that I am not as comfortable as I had hoped to be handing conspiracy theories on.

Just items to tuck in your back pocket against possibility, and let's agree to leave it at that…)

"Use of the Children As Bait to Lure In the Parents" (Scroll down to this heading)
HAARP-ing, anyone?
A cache of FEMA camp articles

Will leave it at that…

Except the question. Have kids been left in Atlanta schools overnight during our city-stopping winter storms before? So far, I don't have an answer to that question.

Have people not been able to get home…

Left their cars overnight…

Still huddled in gridlocks the next morning…

Spent the night in stores that opened their doors to accommodate them…

Why did we all like hypnotised drones go so happily out to create a gridlock the likes of which I do not remember ever seeing in Atlanta before?

We have had storms in Atlanta…

Why the apocalypse?

We knew a storm was coming, and I remember the interviews with Mayor Kasim Reed and other officials, promising we were prepared…

But as faithful readers know, when you read the conspiracy theories as diligently as I do, you connect a lot of dots that you might never have noted before…

And as faithful readers will likewise remember, these days, it's not so much a matter of whether or not these things will ever connect.

We need to be watching, just in case…

[Editor's note. Yes, to be sure.

We do like a party, and the more apocalyptical, these days, the better…]
