George Bush has ‘self-awareness of a bison’

With former cheerleader and bullhorn handler George W. Bush appearing everywhere these days to promote his rewrite-history book, there are some folk who feel sorry for his dim-wittedness and lack of self-awareness.

Matthew Norman’s How Did This Wastrel Ever Find His Way to the White House? has an interesting point of view.

My own p.o.v. on Dubya is not as generous since Bush, a cog in the Bush Dynastry syndicate, was installed in the White House by a complicit Supreme Court and served at the behest and enabling of the global power elite who used him for 8 years as a “propaganda catapulter”, as Bush described himself while in office.

If he hadn’t pleased them by making ‘decisions’ with few, if any, known facts and by his actions, he would have somehow been de-presidented with a newer, more accomodating model put in place.

In his interview with Matt Lauer, I did hear Bush admit to remembering that the financial crash and TARP both occurred under his watch. I see Financial Collapse 2008 as a crescendo at the end of the Bush Years of Wastrelhood, don’t you?

Obama slams ‘corporate takeover’ of US elections!

President Obama’s latest Weekly Radio Address is an especially interesting one to me.

Here’s a link to the video with text provided (propaganda complimentary; our nation’s natal Mercury-Pluto opposition just keeps on giving us the propaganda, doesn’t it? Like pearls of wisdom from On High! Truth notwithstanding, of course.)

Seems it’s somehow politically profitable now to ‘slam’ the SCOTUS-enabled ‘corporate takeover’ of our election process thus crippling our alleged ‘democracy’ but no word yet on corporate takeover of the US government itself of which the president is an integral part and willing enabler.

Why, Mr. Obama’s Goldman-Sachs economic team screams it out loud, right? I only wish we-the-people didn’t have to have what he’s having.

Soviet ‘Doomsday Machine’ a reality

If you missed the NPR feature this morning on the reality of the Soviet Union’s Doomsday Machine, you may wish to have a listen or a read.

See, now here’s a good example of how movies can make light of serious subjects and cause people to assume that they’re only jokes.

Nyet, Dr. Strangelove, your propaganda does not amuse.

Insights on Mercury-Pluto

One of the more interesting planetary combinations of energies to me is the Mercury-Pluto pair which is associated with propaganda, indepth thinking, speaking, and probing, and is similar in nature to Mercury when posited in plutonian Scorpio.

Reinhold Ebertin, in his ‘The Combination of Stellar Influences’ gives Mercury-Pluto’s principle as: ‘the art of persuasion, suggestion.’

Psychologically, the pair gives restless thinking, a quick grasp of every situation, sharp criticism, good observation powers, intellectual triumph over others, slyness or cunning, crafty subtlety, and diplomacy (where one may use the other traits.

Wielding influence – especially over the masses through speaking or writing – is one the attributes of Mercury-Pluto and its power is invaluable to critics and demagogues everywhere.

Negatively, plagiarism and fraudulent representations or misrepresentations may occur with aspects or other links to the Mercury-Pluto combo (such as Mercury in Scorpio, Scorpio on the 3rd or 6th cusp – houses naturally ruled by Mercury. Ex: George W. Bush has Mercury conj Pluto in Leo – in 1st house of Self, the ‘propaganda catapulter’ as he called himself.)

Overuse of Mercury-Pluto energies can result in disturbances or irritation in the nervous system through excessive zeal – so slow down, Mercury-Pluto, your fanatic side may be showing to your disadvantage!

In fact, hasty thinking followed by premature action, impatience, and overestimating one’s abilities are also dangers with this blend.

Positively there can be success through speaking or writing particularly with specialized subjects but pacing oneself is important for best results.

For more indepth information check out Chirotic Journal’s excellent article ‘Mercury Pluto: Insight or Inquisition?’ concerning this fascinating pair of planets.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
