Obama already exceeding my expectations, and more newsance

Suspending all Guantanamo "trials", the first step to closing Guantanamo (update: this year! woohoo!) and the bringing back of the Freedom of information act and transparancy in government. Most Excellent! That's already more than I expected from the entire term! Heh, he did have to retake the oath, oh oh, I guess I'd have been nervous too. But there's more good news! No more jackets required in the Oval office! Just kidding, here: New lobbying rules and freezing White House wages. Well played! I'll have a tiny slice of that hope-nosis now ;p.
Also, the conspiracynoids were a little too paranoid about surveillance and security of the US governement, check this out: New Staff finds White House in tech dark ages. "Obama officials ran smack into the constraints of the federal bureaucracy yesterday, encountering a jumble of disconnected phone lines, old computer software, and security regulations forbidding outside e-mail accounts. The team members, accustomed to working on Macintoshes, found computers outfitted with six-year-old versions of Microsoft software. But there were no missing letters from the computer keyboards, as Bush officials had complained of during their transition in 2001." ROFL. Appearances, appearances, at the highest peaks and the lowest valleys, appearances.
Though not getting carried away, Hillary Clinton just replaced Condoleezza Rice as the next ugly and batshit crazy Secretary of State.
And the bullshit in the media isn't over either, remember the article that global warming was disproved. CNN is upping the bullshit again, seriously. "Human-induced global warming is real, according to a recent U.S. survey based on the opinions of 3,146 scientists. However there remains divisions between climatologists and scientists from other areas of earth sciences as to the extent of human responsibility." Wow, you just destroyed the title of your article, with the first line. Good job "journalists" :p.
And Pakistan have arrested London Bombings suspects, that's a minimum of three groups being used as scapegoats for the London Bombings, nevermind the "terrorist drills" just like on 9/11, the "malfunctioning of all relevant cameras" in Big Brother London, and the incomprehensible police execution of de Menezes.

What of human created environmental degradation are you at odds with.

Ahh : Make a terrible thing like Guantonamo and then take it back, it looks like u did something 'good'.

I always remember exams -
Typical student - I will do badly!
Does well - exceeds expectations
Does not so well - just as expected

Re: the breathing:
One might go without food and survive for a 2,3 or maybe 4 months
Without water , perhaps a few days
but without breath - usually less than 4 or 5 , 10 maybe for big lungers.

At Tai Chi class our teacher told the women who went on diets that breathing in a healthy way can [help to] bring the body to its natural weight

cheers

At least the concentration camp is closing soon ffs.

Interesting about the breathing.

That was a powerful blast of good link-y informations.

I too am pleasantly and cautiously surprised by Obama's first day. I'd start on the hope train, but then I worry he'd pull the rug out from over my eyes.

That's right. That's what I said.

dedroidify said...

That's right!

I'm getting the funniest psychedelic mashup visualisation of your word magick ;p. Especially if he's pulling the rug, stationed on the train. That could set fire to said eyeballs! Or trained in the station!

Btw, I'm getting a step closer in my master plan to body snatch you and take your place in Japan. You'll never see it coming man!

In regards to global warming, check this out, it's happening on Mars too:

Climate change hits Mars

So if it's happening all over the solar system... What's the use of getting ourselves all worked up about it?

Oh right, weather control.

I seem to remember the Simpson's predicting this a long, long time ago...

dedroidify said...

Yeah Ian. The Climate changes everyday. And not just Mars but all planets are experiencing some form of climate change. See David Wilcock's website for a nice overview.

Indeed I'd reckon as well that the SUN has a little more power than a few carbon-emitting humans.

And for the gazillionth time the disclaimer: I want policies that stop the actual pollution of our planet, just like any other environmentalist. No need for a fake/wrong agenda for that!

Did you notice Barrak was compared to an Xbox and Bush was compared to an Atari? Another synchroblogger told me about the double cross/BO resonator in th XBOX. Then I told you about it yesterday and now it's back again.

Floyd Anderson did a Alex Jones video run down. Alex was all angry about how Guantanamo was just a cover. That there are real torture sites all over the world. Closing one was just for Public Relations and to get them used to the idea that Torture Camps will exist.

dedroidify said...

Heh, yes indeed about the Xbox/Atari.

Alex needs a new hobby. Not just Guantanamo but the discussion of closing ALL secret prisons is underway. I don't follow Alex's logic that torture camps will exist if that's the case, but then again it's probably cause the guy isn't very logical to begin with.
