Generations Continued… (And kind of answering some readers)

I will get to the financial questions this weekend. I never looked at an exact date for the actual total bottom out of the market just gave a general time frame from the end of December until about the 20th of January because this is when Pluto goes over the Dow’s ascendant. Except for the exact start was December 21, 2008. To me the main message was to get out back in the fall before the first drop hit which was why I started the blog.

But unfortunately I don’t think we’ve seen the end of the free fall, and I will look at other factors that could set off another big scary plunge coming up in January.  

As I said before Pluto going over the ascendant of the Dow was going to bring to light some serious scandals, criminal activity going on behind the scenes, and a loss of faith in the market itself because of ethics issues. Maidoff (ironic name) is the biggest, but I doubt he will be the only one to be exposed, and fall.

We are in a time of reckoning. A very karmic time, for those who have been greedy and materialistic they will learn major lessons now. Remember that old quote from the bible, “The meek shall inherit the earth.” We are seeing the beginning of the powerful’s fall and a new respect for those old time values, things you can’t buy like politeness, kindness, caring, empathy and good old thriftiness. It’s about time greed became the disgusting word it always has been.

Enough about that! Let’s talk about generational astrology and the first Gen-X president (barely gen-x but still) President Elect Obama. We will go from the mantel of the “Me” generation to that Uranus/Pluto conjunction (in Obama’s case it’s very loose, and his Uranus is in Leo, so he’s not full tilt, but kind of transitional) in Virgo.

Gen-Xers can be annoyingly idealistic on the bad side, and on the good side they actually really do try to walk their talk, whatever their talk is. They are good for their word. Most grew up in fractured families and were ignored not just by the families, but by the culture at large which had a literal boner for everything sexual. One could not enter a store without seeing statues of naked people humping. It was a very child inappropriate time. A time when being a kid or having one was seen almost as a sad debilitating disease that slowed down not only a chance to get laid and wasted (although being a parent has never stopped people from partaking if they wanted to) but also your chance to explore yourself. You know that ever fascinating Me, that has so many things to express and do. 

I found it deeply ironic (that’s the very nice way of putting this) that during the Vietnam war, all war was horrible, when Me’ers were being drafted. Now, I agree war is bad. They were right. But the lame thing was war became good, when it meant cheaper gas in the old Ford 4 wheeler and it was (mostly poor kid) Gen-Xers going to Bagdad, suddenly war wasn’t such a horrible thing.

“We have to protect our interests.” I actually heard old hippies (who had been at one time anti-war) say things like that. It was a major 180. “Don’t trust anyone over 30,” and once they hit their 50s I heard arguments from this generation saying that it wasn’t until people were in their 50s and 60s that they were most productive.

Hey, that’s a coincidence, you’re in your 50s and 60s.

And I won’t say more about this because we all get it just from these few examples. I don’t want to whip them, there are many amazingly good people in this generation, and not all fall victim to these convenient 180s. And not everyone backtracked on their principles, but even those in this generation who are the good eggs agree with me that they, too, have been sorely disappointed by their fellow Me’ers in this regard. Some so disappointed that they have made the mistake of projecting this problem onto all of humanity instead of seeing it as a distinctly Pluto in Leo character trait. Not that they are the only people all of the time, but it is a generational marker. I actually had a history teacher in high school who was a Me’er and he said once, “You can’t change the world. We tried in the 60s and look what good it did. It didn’t make any difference.” 

When I pointed out to him that things took time to grow roots, and that a lot of things actually did change for the better because of the activism of the 60s, which we have to give props to the Pluto in Leo people for, they were a big part of this and this is their good side. They can be very generous and trusting. Problem was they kind of got their dreams crushed after the assassination of JFK and MLK and Bobby Kennedy and many of them gave up and went toward the negative side of the Leo tendency, which was pure un-adulterated ego gratification in the form of materialism, greed, self-absorption, an inability to sacrifice the self for the greater good, and using sexuality as an ego pick-me-up.

Ok, let’s get onto the Generation Y which has more in common with the Me’ers, just as Generation X has more in common with children born during the 1990s (I’m not sure they have a name yet so let’s call them Zers). Generation Y has Neptune in Sag, Pluto in Libra, Uranus in either Libra or Scorpio. This period went from about the fall of 1972 until around the fall of 1984. If you were born in 1971-fall 1972, you fall in between Generation X and Y and will have qualities of both. In some cases you maybe an Xer or a Yer depending on your date of birth as the planets retrograded back and forth for about a year.

Y’s were the kids who went to rave’s. They are very social, and with Neptune in Sag, a bit of a lost soul generation. As a group they spent most of their young adult years floating, the economy was good when they came of age, but they grew up in fractured homes. They often just wanted things to be peaceful and hated confrontation.

They also do not have the same obsession with integrity that Gen-X’ers do. They are more bendable and willing to go along with trends, fit in with their generation and are more social, less critical of others and more accepting.

They had a hippie like feel when they were younger and were more akin to the Pluto in Leo types in terms of accepting (and abiding) excess, and had multiple partners where as Gen-X’ers never dated, they have one boyfriend or girlfriend and then moved on to another. They chastised anyone who even tried the multiple boyfriends or girlfriends idea unlike Y’ers or Me’ers. Gen-Xer’s were and are sort of prudish about sexuality unless it falls into the Neptune in Scorpio side of their personality, and has elements of bondage, S & M or a dark thing about it. Even then one could argue the sexual repression built into the X’ers finds a release in the darker side of sexuality and fantasy. 

Next I’ll go more into Y’ers  and those born in the 80s, 90s and compare them to the other generations as well…

Best wishes to all.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

The Light

Remember the weird garage light incident? Well, we had an electrician not only come out, and check the wiring for a short, and he completely changed out the light fixture. Guess what? The morse code spirit was back! Luckily, this time the light was its white self, and my husband saw it for his very own eyes.

A reader had suggested that she’d noticed signs were often literal and had mentioned the orange color was perhaps related to Orange County, within days of the orange light incident news of Caylee Anthony’s remains were uncovered in Orange County Florida.

From my experience white light, although it would on the surface seem to be benign, is associated with major world events which aren’t good. I’ve seen flashes in the sky, and have had other weird experiences with white light that I won’t bother to go into, just before major global events.

I have to admit I was a little annoyed at the garage light, and thought perhaps it was a trickster ghost or a negative entity. So I devised a means of communications with it. I gave it 10 seconds to respond, one flash for yes, two for no. The weird thing was, it actually worked stunningly well. Accordingly, I ruled out this entity being a ghost, angel or demonic spirit, and lets say it claimed some sort of divine origin from beyond our understanding of God in the realm of Kether for those of you who know the Tree of Life or the Kabbalah. 

Long story short it wanted me to let everyone know that we are at the beginning of the end of the world as we have known it. The end of crazy materialistic greed, and indifference to morality and our fellow man. We are at the end of Capatlism as we have known it, witnessing the fall of that ideology just as 20 some odd years ago Communism fell. What will come in its wake I feel will be something more in the middle, a capatlistic form of socialism if we are smart, if not, and we remain steadfastly glued to our greed and selfishness it could turn into a world of extreme explotation. I’m an optimist so I’m going with the former rather then the later. 

I wasn’t going to post tonight because I’m exhausted from the holiday and just catching up with all of it, but I was woken up by this energy, and urged to put this information out there. 

We will learn a lot of spiritual lessons coming up, compassion, kindness and a new respect for life and humanity. But I fear we will be so caught up in this global paradigm shift (mostly economic and political) that we maybe blind-sided by the eco-disaster we are headed for, and all that intails including global health problems. I also fear with this period of restructuring we will see a rise in groups trying to vi for power through terrorism, and more corrupt people trying to bully their way into positions of power. We must all be and stay involved in the politics of our world. It is imperative to our survival.

So for now that’s all I’m going to write. I’m very tired and I had to get that off my chest. Once the holidays are over. I promise to answer more questions and give more detailed posts.

Wishing all of you many blessings and a warm and wonderful holiday season. Enjoy your loved ones and be thankful for all you have.

Answering Readers’ Questions…

Hi everyone, hope your holiday season is going well. It looks like the downward spiral is happening in the market as predicted, despite the time period which is generally characterstically low in movement either way during the week of solstice or yule, Christmas/Hanukkah. 

I just want to say that I read on some financial blog a reference to a statement I made about gold a while back. From what I could tell at the time via the cards there wasn’t a really strong constant direction up, and despite the fact that people turn to precious metals to invest in during recessions and depression, it didn’t look like it was going to go be a straight shoot upward, which I found confusing.

Anyway, I laughed out loud when someone called me an idiot, or something like that, because I said the market was too volatile at the time of the question to predict. And the person posted something like: that twit obviously knows nothing about the market.

So let me assure you I really do know nothing about the market which I have stated numerous times. All I go on here is astrology and whether things look bad for a company, or a stock, or good. If you ask me questions about anything abstract, or that I don’t have a chart for I can’t answer you because I’m not an economist. I’m a freaky artsy, psychic, astrologer not a business/economist type.

That being said of course people are worried about their money which I’m happy to help with, but with the caveat that everyone knows I am just a psychic and an astrologer. I foresaw the first market crash a couple of weeks before it happened because of my psychic ability, but this was a general, “Get out of the market!” sort of warning that was hammered into my skull from whatever or wherever these things come from. And I picked the word tsunami back then (which later Greenspan used to describe the situation) because it felt like it was going to pull back, and then flood us, not tear us down like a tornado in one fell swoop or shake everything to pieces in a matter of moments like an earthquake.

So here goes with questions. The first is more of a comment from Grace who did some research on the world economy, and I’d like to share her post with everyone:

The government of Beligum fell this weekend due to the financial crisis and suspected corruption. http://www.nineoclock.ro/index.php?page=detalii&categorie=worldnews&id=20081222-20320

Apparently, those corporate fat cats have learned nothing. AP IMPACT: Wall Street still flying corporate jets

On verge of failure, bank executives collected financial bonanzas, AP study finds

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/sns-ap-executive-bailouts,0,568377.story

This is not just happening in the US. In a few minutes search, I found dozens of articles from around the world where corporate fat cats accepted government money that they insisted they needed to continue operations are now using this money so they can have enormous bonuses and fly around in corporate jets playing golf with one another! These same people time and count their underlings bathroom breaks and dock them an hour’s pay if they are five minutes late! I can’t tell you how angry I feel thinking about this on so many levels. Obviously, it is good to be the king.

Andrew Rumsey

Will Lehman Brothers recover from their Chapter 11 of Title 11 Bankruptcy? Should I hold onto what shares I have and possibly buy more or should I sell my Lehman Brothers shares?

Hey Andrew,

Do you have an incorporation date or a start trading date for this company. I need the date, time and place and I can run a chart and let you know what I find. If you could research that for me I’ll be happy to let you know.

Also there were questions about FAZ, which I will get to later, but in the mean time can anyone explain to me what this is? You don’t need to go into too much detail, just give a basic run down, something to clarify what it is that I’m reading.

OK for now that is all. I have so much to do with the holidays as everyone does and my husband was out of town for two weeks, leaving me alone with a little baby so besides getting sick this past week, I’m way behind on everything.

Have a great holiday week.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

The Outer Planets: How they effect us personally (part 1)

For those of you who have researched astrology, you’ve probably read that Pluto, Neptune and Uranus are more generational in nature and don’t effect our personality or us personally in the same way that the “personal” planets like: the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn do. (Of course the Sun and Moon are not actually planets but for the sake of astrological influence are lumped in with them and referred to them as such.) But let me assure everyone that this is a major error and misnomer on the part of astrologers that I plan to explain.

The argument set forth by astrologers is that because these outer bodies are slow moving, they can’t directly effect individuals and instead have more to do with whole generations. True, in a way, but lets examine this assumption. There is a quote I read many years ago by Thomas Paine (which I’ll have to find later and post exactly) that states basically: People are more like their generation then their own parents.

People born within a generation (I’ve noticed) not only have  have physical characteristics about them that stand out. The Baby Boomers have Pluto in Leo and Neptune in Libra. Leo the lion has a mane, is it any surprise that this generation was obsessed with hair? They even had a musical with this name and it was a major source of protest for hippies to let their hair grow in every direction, and as long as it could get. This is just the superficial start of how Pluto in Leo plays itself out within the generation.

This was the generation dubbed, “The Me Generation,” again Leo rules the ego, family, creativity, fertility, children, child-like behavior, speculation, hobbies, theater, drama, performing, And this generation was the first to radically change the dynamics of the family literally Pluto = transformation, death and rebirth, sexuality and in Leo the family, the performing arts (hello rock and roll.) This was the beginning of massive divorce rates and partner swapping, which would be the Neptune in Libra. Neptune = confusion, delusion, illusion, spirituality, psychic ability and Libra = Partnerships, marriage, the visual arts, issues of fairness, peace, strategy, legal matters. All people in this generation have dealt with permutations of these issues directly. And in a strange way this over-arching theme among people born from the late 1930s to the mid-late 1950s I’d argue effects them more because they not only have personally dealt with these issues in various forms in their own lives, but it colors their perception of history and world view because their peers also share these same issues and there is a presumption cast on all humanity that these themes are ever present, when in actuality they are, but not to the same degree.

Let’s look at the generation after the boomers, the Gen-Xers, born from about 1957-1971 (this is from an astrological view point not the standard arbitrary time frame given for generations). Less people were born during this period then any other, especially when Pluto conjuncted Uranus in Virgo. This was the height of the sexual revolution from about 1962-1968. Uranus rules revolution, and Virgo rules: perfectionism, health food, dietary concerns, health, medicine, service to others, analysis, criticism, and is associated with the fashion industry. With Uranus conjunct Pluto during a chunk of this generation from about 1962-1968, we have seen a rise in (and I know because this because I am part of this nutty generation) over-zealous almost religious fervor about health food, dietary issues and exercise. On the positive side there has been an exploration (by this generation in particular) of eastern medicine, energy work and all things non-traditional in regards to healing the body.

This configuration also gives a strange sort of not wanting to be part of a generation thing, where there is an emphasis on individuality because of the Uranus interaction with Pluto, and a recycling of the past in new ways, hence the obsession with vintage everything. Also this generation has Neptune in Scorpio which brought to the forefront the modern primitive/tattoo clan, and also an acceptance and fascination with the occult in general among my peeps. 

I’m going to continue this post tomorrow, discecting generation Y and beyond. And then wrap it all in a nice bow and illustrate how these generational traits play a personal role in our lives.

I’m going to be lazy and sleep now. It’s been a very hectic couple of weeks, and it’s almost the holidays. And I haven’t even finished shopping! That’s how behind I am.

Best wishes to all of you. May your dreams come true (as long as they are not nightmares) and may the Universe bestow many blessings upon you, and your loved ones.

Happy almost official Solstice or Yule tide.

The first question comes from Sag.

Sag1999

Hi Denise, Thanks a lot for doing the charts for Boston. I had emailed this separately, and here is the gist with a little more info. I stared at the European and Italy maps for a while, and the Vatican caught my eye. It’s a neighbor/friend of Italy, of the great book the Bible, and its Pope Benedict XVI is from Germany. Does it resonate with the cards Grace mentioned above? The Vatican is near the River Tiber. All the pieces from my intuition fit in the puzzle. And the Vatican is a symbol of religious or Christian power. What do you think?

Hi Sag,

It makes almost too much sense for a terrorist to think up!

I’ve been to the Vatican. It is actually in the center of Rome, and is considered its own country, with its own postage stamps, and everything. The guards still wear uniforms designed by Michael Angelo. They are extremely goofy looking, and wouldn’t scare a child with a water pistol away. It’s an interesting notion, but my gut tells me no.

There is so much gold, lapis luzuli, and garnet or ruby dust on the walls of that place selling off part of one of the walls could feed all of Africa for a year. There is so much raided treasure in the Vatican it is both beautiful, and if one knows the history, actually very appalling.

I wouldn’t rule out Italy though. I could imagine something happening in a train station or something like that, something transportation related.

I asked the tarot though just to be sure, and of course they said, Yes. But it was an odd sort of yes in that it didn’t look like a physical sort of attack against the Vatican and/or it didn’t look like it would really work.

Hi Denise You are right on in your assessment of Casey Anthony … she is a true sociopath. No doubt the defense will try to get her off on the grounds of temporary insanity, since the evidence against her is so damning; but she knew exactly what she was doing: Caylee Marie got in the way of her partying lifestyle, so she offed her. I suspect there are many dark and terrible secrets in the Anthony home, not just this horrific crime. I live in central FL and we’ve had this story on the local news pretty much 24/7 since it happened. Now that the poor child’s body has been found, we all want justice for her. So sorry you have to deal with migraines, Denise. But perhaps they intensify your gift. I’ve heard them described as “an electrical storm in the brain” and some sufferers report a feeling of clarity after the pain wears off. I get them, also, but not nearly as badly as you do; I find if I take the herb feverfew daily, it helps cut down on the frequency and severity of the attacks. But I don’t take other meds that might conflict with it. Herbs are powerful medicine in themselves! Thanks for all you do here. May peace and prosperity be yours in the New Year. And thank God the Boooosh Administration is on its way out! I hope you’re right … that a war tribunal is in their future, with prison close behind. Peace! Norah Ocala, FL

Hi Norah,

Thanks for the kind words and good wishes. I’m wishing you the very same.

We haven’t had the same coverage here about that poor girl. I’ve only seen snippets here and there. There was never a doubt in my mind that the girl’s mother did it.

The poltergeist phenomena stopped once I posted that Cassey Anthony murdered her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony. Perhaps the little girl wanted word to get out that her mother did indeed kill her. What a sick, despicable woman that sweet little one’s mother is, it is beyond tragic.

kishwer

i have some ?s about my satrun dasha?I need answers and help from you. thanks kish

Hi Kishwer,

I am not a Vedic/Sidereal astrologer. I’m of the Western/Tropical persuasion contrary to many websites stating that I am an Indian astrologer. I’m flattered by this as I’ve had dreams of India all my life since childhood, and memories of a past life there, and a real love of this country, but in this life I do Western astrology.

The little I have studied of Vedic astrology would be of  no help to you. It would be better off for you to go to someone who specializes in this because it is very different then Western astrology. We do not use dashas and we use outer planets, the old tropical placements rather then the sidereal ones, and so many other differences it’s hard to explain in one post. Both are extremely accurate, but oddly enough, there isn’t much cross over.

Best of luck in finding help with this. If you find a good reference for a Vedic astrologer please post it. I’m fascinated by this branch of astrology, but upon researching and studying it, I found it so different then the western system that it just confused what I already knew. However, I would love to have a chart done by a good Indian astrologer.

vish

Hello Denise, just read your prediction of market crash next week. Would it also affect the financial stocks adversely? If so, I was considering investing in stock FAZ which does well if financial stocks crash. Please advise. Appreciate your help. Thanks, Vish

Hi Vish,

Do you have any sort of information on FAZ such as its incorporation date or when it was founded? If so please post it and I will run a chart.

The market crash will most likely be ongoing through the end of January, and then will rebound a bit when another crash will happen in June, and stay unstable like it has been now until the end of November in 2009 when it will again show real signs of recovery. 

Of course this is assuming that the Dow’s chart is accurate, if it is not the timing will be off. We’ll soon see. If the market continues to spiral down until the end of January and then starts to stabilize a bit after that, then we’ll know the chart I have is correct.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

Denise

Hi everyone,

Tonight I tried to catch up on a bit of news.  It was just confirmed that the bones of Caylie Marie Anthony, found about a block and a half away from where the toddler was living were indeed the remains of the little girl. I watched the news in horror. And noticed that this was in Orange County. I had to roll back the DVR to make sure, because Hope and A Plan had posted this after the orange light incident/poltergeist activity:

hopeandaplan

Hi Denise,

I just saw in the news that there was an earthquake in S Carolina, early this morning. I had a thought about the orange garage light experience you had last night. Sometimes when I get signs they are literal. Do you think its somewhere called Orange? Orange county Florida, California, or Orange the city in different areas??? And, Do you think there is anything to worry about with the Soviets doing naval excercises in the waters off of Venezuela? Thanks for keeping up the blog!

I wondered if this was a visitation from the little girl, trying to get a message through. I was after all alone with my  11 month old daughter. Child murders are always extremely upsetting, but this one in particular always made me sick to my stomach, its not like Casey (the mother and talk about some narcissism with the name freakishness of Casey, grandma Cindy, I mean come on) was having a psychotic break like Andrea Yates which was horrifying, but at least she was out of her mind, this woman Casey is clearly just a sociopath. Every time I’d see her disgusting face on the news my stomach would turn. She just oozes manipulative, sociopathic, self-centered, self-indulgent slime bag. The pictures of that poor daughter are just heart breaking especially after having a daughter myself. Anyway, perhaps this was an attempt by the child’s spirit to communicate, or just a total coincidence. Either way it’s weird.

prabhat

dear sir, i went thru your analysis about -india pakistan war.i agree with you. transit of mars and rahu in capricorn –interchange of sun and saturn and presence of transit mercury in capricorn……indictions are horrifying….may lead to ANTHRAX BOMB and other such inhumane attacks. destiny cannot be altered. thnx and regards,and… see u in the dreams. bye http://www.astrokhare.com

Hi Prabhat,

It’s fascinating how both Vedic/Sideral astrology and Western/Tropical astrology use completely different systems, calculations, even planets and both come to similar conclusions. As my readers can see that Prabhat says, “destiny cannot be altered,” this is a common theme in Vedic astrology although westerners who practice Vedic astrology will argue that, Indian astrologers will not. I have studied both systems and I find that they are both accurate, however in the west we do have more ability to exercise our free will and therefore have more control of our destiny. The reality is that in India, marriages are arranged, and people are tracked toward a particular career, and although the cast system is outlawed, it still exists. People born in India do have to contend with fate in a much different way then we do in the west which is why I think Vedic astrology is so accurate for people in that part of the world, but less so for westerners. And why western astrology is much more accurate for us on this side of the globe.

They are both equally accurate and important despite the entirely different viewpoints, calculations, house systems, aspects, including planets, even the signs are different for example if you are an Aries in western astrology, unless you were born at the very end of that sign you’d be a Pisces. Pretty different yet both are accurate. The universe sure is complex and amazing.

Funny, my husband and I were talking about places he had lived that we would like to go back to. He has been longing to return to Italy for several days now. My kids also have an annoying toy that plays the alphabet song that’s been going off a lot lately. Unlike your baby’s toy, this one goes off at the drop of a hat. An interesting thing is that this fall before the election it was another toy that plays Peter and the Wolf went off constantly. Just out of curiousity, my 2 year old got out a deck of cards and completely crumpled the 8 of hearts, King of Diamonds and the Jack of Diamonds. What do these cards correspond with in the tarot? I thought she was destroying face cards because her older sister and I were playing Slap Jack earlier. Then I remembered, she thinks every card is a “slap jack”. She also pretty much destroyed a joker, but we give her the jokers to play with while we are playing other games, so I didn’t think much of it. I’m glad you’re feeling better. Congratulations on the book deal! Happy Holidays!

Hi Grace,

The 8 of hearts is the 8 of cups in the tarot. It means so many options that the person can’t decide what to do. Often there is an element of illusion involved in this card. The King of Diamonds is the King of Pentacles, and this is a tricky one because in order for Rider/Waite to publish the first tarot deck and honor their vows to the magical order they were involved in they had to switch certain cards to get around things. The King of Pentacles, most books will tell you, is an earth sign man, but according to the Brotherhood of Light, which is where I really learned the craft of reading (rather then just using them as clairvoyant jumping off points) the card is actually a Gemini male if it is right side up, and a Gemini woman if it is reversed.

The Jack of Diamonds is the Page of Pentacles which would actually be an Aquarian male right side up or an Aquarian female if reveresed. Again a book would tell you it was an earth sign, but it really isn’t. This little switch-a-roo is evident when you actually look at the cards, there are clues built into the illustrations.

Sorry, Denise, Sept. 7, 1630, from the blog I cited before was a more accurate date for the founding of Boston (not 11/17/1630). Please use the Sept date if you are doing the chart.

Hi Sag,

There are two charts I ran for Sept. 7 because I guess back in 1630 they were using a different calendar and my computer compensated for that putting the actual date at 9/17/1630 but just in case it was already compensated for, I ran a chart for Sept. 7, 1630 as well. The compensated chart has some tension with Mars conjuncting the part of fortune in Aries in the 8th house inconjuncting the Sun and Mercury. However you must bare in mind that these are both just solar charts so there maybe things going on in the chart of Boston that are hidden from me since we don’t have an exact time. In general though neither chart looks terrible. Hope that helps calm your fears. Below are the two solar charts.

picture-25Also I saw a few things I wanted to make sure no one missed, Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol’s, future mother-in-law was arrested for crank. That can’t be good for Mrs. Palin’s career – karma anyone? There has been a minor auto industry bail-out which I thought would happen earlier then this, they really dragged this one out. And there is an investigation that has been started by congress here’s a passage I found about it:

A bipartisan Senate report, issued on December 11, accuses Rumsfeld and other top Bush administration officials – including Condoleezza Rice – of being directly responsible for the abuse and torture of prisoners at Guantanamo and other US prisons. It is the result of a two-year investigation conducted by the Senate Armed Services Committee under the direction of Democratic Senator Carl Levin and Republican John McCain, the former presidential candidate.

Although the report remains confidential, a 29 page summary was made public. It states that the source of the CIA’s resort to methods of “aggressive interrogation’ of terrorist suspects lay in Bush’s decision on February 7, 2002 that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to Taliban and Al Qaida prisoners. This opened the door for water-boarding (simulation of drowning), nudity, tying prisoners in stress positions for long periods and, of course, “extraordinary rendition”, that is to say the practice of sending prisoners abroad to be tortured in foreign countries on behalf of the United States.

Another critical report – not yet published but circulating among top officials in Washington – is a 513-page history of America’s lamentable yet highly-expensive failure at rebuilding Iraq after the devastation it caused in overthrowing Saddam. Entitled Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience, the report was compiled by the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, led by Stuart Bowen, a Republican lawyer.

Also I’ve heard that Rumsfeld can’t go to certain countries because there are warrants for his arrest to be tried for war crimes. It has long been my prediction that this administration will be tried for war crimes by an international court, and that many, if not all will end up in prison. I’ve been saying that since we went into Iraq, and of course no one believed me. My friends and family have heard me rail on about this prediction for a long time now. So lets all do something positive and imagine the Bush administration and all their lacky’s behind bars. They deserve that times a billion.

All the lives lost, the death, destruction, tearing apart a soveirgn nation for what? Imbalancing the power in that region so that Iran has become a real threat, and making the Muslim population of the world hate us ten fold?

We know how many of our people have died. But how many innocent Iraqi people, men, women and children have died due to this arrogant, disgusting and perverted, vile, administration? They have been more like a gang of greedy psychopaths then a group of leaders.

Let’s not lie to ourselves and pretend the Bush administration is the first and only vile administration. There were others, one that springs to mine was old Hickory – Andrew Jackson, a real horror show with his trail of tears, or what we would now call ethnic cleansing.

It makes me angry that we Americans somehow think we are always the good guys, and that’s exactly how we become the bad guys — we forget to look at ourselves, that’s when we get into trouble. This is exactly why the patriotic BS after 9/11 was so destructive, as if criticizing the government was somehow anything other then those among us with a moral compass trying to keep our government on the straight and narrow.  

My great hope is for those out there who we have hurt or wounded, trampled on with our mighty power, or abandoned in their time of need, just know it is not us the people of the US, it is and has been our lame government. There are people here who care about the world, who understand we are not perfect and who believe we should rectify the mistakes we’ve made.

It’s important to remember there are good and bad people everywhere, and terrorism hurts only the innocent. It accomplishes nothing and is just an empty egomaniacal gesture and vein attempt at fleeting self-importance and world attention that leads directly to the dark side. There are no virgins awaiting you in paradise. Terrorism isn’t martyrdom. It’s the way of cowards killing innocent people because those terrorists are too small, cowardly and weak to take up arms against the real people in power who oppress them.

Martyrdom is serving, and helping your fellow human beings, feeding the hungry, saving the broken, not murdering innocent people. Mother Teressa was a martyr. Bin Laden was a (I have a strong feeling he’s dead now or  is in the process of dying) maladjusted lost soul looking to be important because his ego was weak, and just being wealthy wasn’t enough for him, he had to be important, even if that meant killing innocent human beings to feed his pathetic ego.

OK, sorry I got very angry there thinking about people who do such evil deeds in the name of religion or God. It literally drives me nuts. It’s absolutely the most vile thing, justifying murder via God. Horrible.

Anyway, on a lighter note, hope all are having a good weekend, and hopefully nothing crazy will happen over the next few days.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you good and wise readers,

Denise
