What's the moral mathematics of the moment?

An experiment: One of the finest classical violinists in the world dresses as a street musician and plays at rush hour in a DC train station. Will people stop and listen? (With video and audio.)

Man, lets talk about something else for a while.. Tell me what you are listening to or watching over on the Tunetalk and Matinee Mixup blogs.. links at left but if you want to post just pick the different blog in the dashboard...

more change the subject topics:
for HDTV: Cable or satellite? Is satellite really cheaper or are they all just running the bait and switch intro offers. I hear dish is ok, w. lots of channels. I am going to see how long I can go without any just for fun (my guess, <1 mo.)

for internet: DSL or Cable? It all seems to be getting faster. I favor DSL right now cuz I am po'ed at the cable co.

whats new in yalls life and what do you want to be new? I am moving. it sucks. Any tips? I am having problems throwing shit away but gotta get in mode. 1 week to go.

oh yeah I will prolly fall out for a bit as i move & get reconnected.. catch ya on the flipside.

Someone figure out a better template please.

Clipping from my comment on A's previous post:
When Bush accuses Bin Laden of attacking the USA, and then deports all the Bin Laden's in the USA quietly to France the day after the attack, I am forced to question his statements on some level.

How do the other fellas interpret the deportation of Bin Ladens from the USA? Are you all HAPPY that Bush was so courteous that those people are allowed to fly out of the country IMMEDIATELY following a (supposed) terrorist attack by their brother ** BEFORE they could be debriefed by CIA/FBI ** ?

For two years, this violation of the air ban is denied by the FAA, FBI, and White House, and decried as an urban legend except for one article detailing them in a Tampa newspaper. [Tampa Tribune, 10/5/2001] Finally, in 2003, counterterrorism “tsar” Richard Clarke confirms the existence of these flights, and Secretary of State Powell confirms them as well. [MSNBC, 9/7/2003; Vanity Fair, 10/2003] However, the White House remains silent on the matter. [New York Times, 9/4/2003] Officials at the Tampa International Airport finally confirm this first flight in 2004.

While serving as governor of Texas, George W. Bush met with high-level Al Qaeda leaders, hoping to get support to build a pipeline across Afghanistan. Four months into his presidency, he [Bush] rewarded the Taliban by handing over $43 million in May 2001, only six months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Seems pretty ugly to me. I mean, Bush gave the Taliban millions in contracts, but I'm not getting free health care? What's going on?!?!?!

I'm interested to hear the non-conspiracy theory people's views on these events? Did they not happen, or were these just insignficant events that hit the 'muckrackers' radars? Do you all think Bush is innocent of this corruption & double dealing? Is the Saudi/Bush connection being overplayed by Left-Wing media?

On Nick Berg

Fake arguments
42] Berg is wearing an orange uniform identical to those used by the US for detainees.

43] The walls and baseboards are identical to the Abu Ghraib prison. The room size is institutional in size.

44] Berg is shown in a chair identical to those in the prison. These chairs are not extremely rare, but the odds of both chairs being identical is slim.

45] At 13:45:58 an individual with white skin, a military outfit, and a military hat identical to one worn by a guard at Abu Ghraib passes quickly through the lower right of the frame. This person's side re-enters several times. At 13:46:26 their left ear and hat is clearly visible in the lower right of the frame for a second. They have a pen in their left pocket where it would be impossible to reach with their right hand. Left handed individuals are taboo in Islamic cultures, you can not be a left-handed Muslim Arab, you can not write with your left hand. For more a complete analysis of this scene click here.




so he coincidentally loaned his laptop to Zacharias Moussaoui in Oklahoma, his family thinks he was in US custody for 13 days, and alleges they have an e-mail about it, and the cia thinks it was Zarqawi that beheaded him (as reported by Fox)?
who be trippin'?

I think it is an interesting allegory to 9/11 conspiracy theories. shouldn't questioning and debate reveal the truth? and yes a good argument against the conspiracy is the ineptness/secrecy bit but what about factual debate?

dr.? blood spurts?

bleh what does it matter..
oh yeah how are we doing on that Anthrax mailing investigation?

Any responses from anyone to Marvin Bush?
Interesting article on Marvin Bush.

For those non-conspiracy theorists ... uh, doesn't this seem unusual?
This article in Counterpunch points out the irony, and how badly Clinton would've gotten it if his brother's company was in charge of security at WTC on 9/11...

More food for thought, IMO.

(You guys know I think Bush was in on the gig. That's why for me it's not a coverup type of 'Oh My God' discovery, it's more of 'aha, another piece to stick into the puzzle.
What started me off was
a) the strange falling of the towers, looking like a planned demolition
b) president sitting stupidly for minutes
c) no jets scrambling in response
d) mysterious flight 93 'take-down' (IMO)
e) grabbing the tapes of the Pentagon missile hit (agents were grabbing tapes WITHIN 10 MINUTES of the attack!)

There's a lot of other stuff that makes me EXTREMELY DUBIOUS of this not being an inside job, but a-e was a solid enough start...)

But in America, some of us like to believe our Monarchy has noble values...
