Temporarily using a Windows desktop computer since my laptop is out of commission. It’s stuck on some eastern European language with no way to revert back, plus I can’t shut it down except for holding down the on/off button, which also is disconcerting. If I lose my Macbook I don’t know what I’m going to do. No money for another one, and I really can only work with Macs, I barely know how to turn on an Windows laptop. Well I guess I could learn : (
Anyway, Since I’m using a Windows machine I tried out Windows Live Writer. It seems to work with WordPress…haven’t tried it with Blogspot/Google Blogger, but it seems to stick inline CSS styles in with your photos and there’s no way to disable that setting. Otherwise it’s a whole heck of a lot better than trying to write in the WordPress UI – they give you a tiny little white space and make you constantly publish and re-publish in order to update what you’ve edited. So this is an improvement, definitely. Better than using Notepad or Word to write a blog entry. I’d never thought to use Live Writer since I’d always been using a Mac/UNIX.
Note: You can download the latest Live Writer free from Microsoft but a warning – they’ll try to get you to install a slew of other crap like Messenger and Movie Maker unless you uncheck these before installing.
Why is no one saying the obvious? That the big Gulf of Mexico oil spill might be an act of terrorism? Islamic terrorism? Because, politically-speaking, this might put the blame squarely on the current administration? And with the congressional mid-term elections barely 3 and-a-half months away this would be unacceptable?
But it makes no sense that no one is considering the possibility, at least not that I have heard. Nor are many people much less even venturing to guess at the cause of the spill. Maybe we are still working through the how – since the spill is not yet contained. But wouldn’t it help to know the “why” as well as the “how”?
Halliburton good…BP better!
Some, for example in Congress (the media take their cues from politicians, sadly), began to lay blame on Halliburton (purportedly in charge of cementing Deepwater Horizon’s drill underwater during the oil rig’s construction). Then, taking a cue from the Obama admininistration, the media swung in the direction of laying sole blame on BP (especially as, hmm…convenient isn’t it?…the government began to realize the cash cow that a British Petroleum payout would be!). British Newspaper The Guardian points to Cameron Industries, manufacturer of the “blowout-preventer”. But perhaps this 177 year-old American company doesn’t have enough moolah for the Obama admin. “shakedown” artists?
Filmmaker and investigative reporter James Fox’s account of the “total media blackout” at the scene only lends support to the terrorism theory.
People ought naturally to be asking, “why?” as well has “how”. But they aren’t, at least not in the mainstream media, because the media take their cues from politicians and White House. I’m continually amazed at the power the Executive branch has in directing public debate. And the Executive is supposed to be “co-equal” with the Supreme Court and Congress? hmm.
The Gulf oil spill happened on Hitler’s birthday – was that a coincidence or sick humor on the part of a knowing party?
Truly, what kind of force might be capable of carrying this plan out? Well, after watching the above, now listen to this audio recording of David Icke and Jordan Maxwell w/ special consideration to 5:35 to 10:20: David Icke’s (secondhand) account of Ted Heath and the British political elite at Burnham Beaches and the financial district of London:
