RedFlex Photo Radar Van Technician Doug Georgianni Killed

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

 

Please—Feel free to post you comments. 

 

While I cannot condone manslaughter, it is understandable in the current environment.  Sadly, this incident feeds right into Napolitano’s recent admonitions concerning “domestic” terrorism.

 

This morning I heard Ankarlo utter some absolute rubbish!  When & if KTAR and Ankarlo are sued because of Ankarlo’s irresponsible statements encouraging marginally stable persons to commit suicide necessitates pulling him from the air!  Perhaps that is the real reason why Ankarlo Mornings changed hosts during the past hour?

 

Certainly there is support to the idea that photo radar cameras and the inordinate amount of surveillance violate our Constitutional rights.  And we can thank the last administration, the Bush Administration for this.

 

Nonetheless, the irresponsible talk continues this very hour on KTAR and I am just tired of Barely-Famous Barry Young’s histrionics.  KFYI’s “Barely-Man-Enough Barry Young” is generally irritating and insulting.  Certainly, I wish there was someone else besides those two to listen to in the morning on Talk Radio.

 

But allow me to come to my point:  Let’s apply one principle to this matter and be done with it.

 

DPS Director Roger Vanderpool listen up.  You’ve made a lot of mistakes, serious mistakes—which will come to light in my blog.  But, I hope you as the man in charge of those cameras will agree with me. 

 

Governor Jan Brewer give me your attention.  You’ve inherited a lot of mistakes, which you have been loath to denounce and change.  But, I hope you as the woman in charge of DPS Director Vanderpool and most everything in the State will see the wisdom in my recommendations.

 

Let’s end this insane spying on one another and undue stress and anxiety on our roads.  Let’s apply the principle that has been so often exploited to invoke law after law in the name of saving the children.  How many times have we heard?

 

If it saves only one life . . .

 

If it saves only one child . . .

 

It will be worth it.

 

Put an end to this insanity and end these off-the-wall discussions by pulling those cameras, admitting it was a bad idea and

do it now!

 

Why?

 

Because I guarantee it will save at least one life.

 

It will save at least one more life.

 

And to insist upon being stiff necked and keeping those draconian cameras in place and continuing the stress & anxiety on the roadways and on us all, will render you, Brewer & Vanderpool et al., complicit in the next murder(s)!

 

What’s your opinion on this? 

 

Is the alleged Thomas Patrick Destories a hero or a victim?

 

How responsible should KTAR be if any one commits suicide because of irresponsible utterances encouraging them to kill themselves?

 

 

What’s your opinion?

When Art is not Merely Art

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

 

 

Upon first watching this video on December 22, I was astonished.  I posted the mention below immediately on my blog.  However, upon reviewing the comments on this particular video I became aware that I had been had.  I was fooled.   I reviewed the video and observed the onion symbol that was in the typical place of the “C” in “C-SPAN.”

 

So, I took it down.  However, after some reflection I find there may be some good reasons to draw your attention to it.  I researched HR 8971 and found there was indeed such a bill; however, it was about “the disposing of agricultural surpluses to encourage foreign relations” in 1954.

 

It saddens me to see that I was fooled, that some think we must “jump” to every change in the breeze.  Nonetheless, there may be some truth to this “spoof.”  Allow me to explain:

 

Throughout history in art, there has been a trend towards the subconscious expression of the truth.  This spoof on The Congressional Record may indeed be just such a reflection.  Observe how I and others were so quickly drawn in and easily fooled.

 

Something else crosses mind.  That is the idea of so-called “low level magic” prevalent in conspiratorial spheres.  The idea is that the prognosticator informs the victim of the horrors that the prognosticator intends to inflict upon the victim thereby causing the victim to be more easily subdued, to be put to sleep in a fashion.

 

Nonetheless, there is a concept in the psychological literature called “learned helplessness” put forth by Martin Seligman.  In his famous experiments dogs were subjected to electrical shock and under certain circumstances, the dogs no longer tried to avoid the shock but merely lay down, curled up and accepted their fate. They stopped trying.

 

When I think of these concepts, especially the reflection of political truths in the arts and Seligman’s “learned helplessness,” the video takes on new meaning.  Perhaps it is not so much of a spoof, satire or humorous art.  Be advised, it is a “joke” but is it funny?

 

Folks,

 

Watch this while you can.  It’s already been taken down once and it won’t be up long:

Listen to Representative John Haller (Republican) from Pennsylvania choke as he reads about the provisions for urban centers as he declares, “Jesus!” and he again announces another passage is “classified.” 

 

WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO DO IS SO HORRIBLE THE HONORABLE CONGRESSMAN LOST HIS COMPOSURE COMPLETELY!

 

HR8791 is euphemistically called “The Homeland Terrorism Preparedness Bill” in doublespeak.  It really is a plan for marshal law.  Moreover, it includes mentions to:

 

“Large scale outbreak”

 

“If the attack affects more than 80% of the population CLASSIFIED.”

 

“Irradiated CLASSIFIED.”

 

“Air bourn CLASSIFIED.”

 

“Flesh eating CLASSIFIED.”

 

Listen closely because there is a lot more that slips out including underground holding centers and body disposal.  Moreover, it contains provisions for a CLASSIFIED person or agency to draft our NEW BILL OF RIGHTS!

 

Why must so much be down under the cloak of secrecy?  It reads, from what little leaked out in this YouTube video, like a massive assault on multiple fronts planned against the US population!
