It's False Flag Time or The Calendar says it's time for another war!

false flag
Web definitions
  1. False flag operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. ...

Here we go again. It has been a slow summer hasn't it? Congress is away on their many vacations, (not that they do anything anyway) and things are starting to slow down in the war world. 

What to do, what to do.

The boys in the war room decided it is time to attack another country. Let's not bring in the United Nations to see what they think. My goodness, the British are saying no this time too. There goes our hope for a coalition.

A few more wars and all those nasty cutbacks for the defense department will go away! You are either for us or against us, right boys?

No weapons of mass destruction available? How about talk of chemical weapons? Where have we heard that before? Proof? we will get back to you on that.

Since the days of Joesph Pulitzer and William Hearst who helped provoke the Spanish-American war to sell newspapers we have gone out of our way to go to war.

By the way, after that war we ended up with Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines.

Stay tuned for more exciting news!

Another fiction story soon to be real!

I read a lot of books in my day, still do.

Back in 1927 Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote this story about brain swapping, putting a brain into a younger body.

On Mars, Paxton is taken in by elderly mad scientist Ras Thavas, the "Master Mind" of the title, who educates him in the ways of Barsoom and bestows on him the Martian name Vad Varo. Ras has perfected techniques of transplanting brains, which he uses to provide rich elderly Martians with youthful new bodies for a profit. Distrustful of his fellow Martians, he trains Paxton as his assistant to perform the same operation on him. But Paxton has fallen in love with Valla Dia, one of Ras' young victims, whose body has been swapped for that of the hag Xaxa, Jeddara (empress) of the city-state of Phundahl. He refuses to operate on Ras until his mentor promises to restore her to her rightful body. A quest for that body ensues, in which Paxton is aided by others of Ras' experimental victims, and in the end he attains the hand of his Valla Dia, who in a happy plot twist turns out to be a princess

Then today I read about this.


It's tempting to dismiss the bold claims of futurists as pie-in-the-sky—or merely empty hope that they won't die. But the promise of immortality is not one taken lightly.

Dmitry Itskov, a 32-year-old Russian tech entrepreneur, is the man behind Global Futures 2045, an international congress that focuses on how to overcome 21st century challenges. At this meeting of the minds, Itskov laid out his plan to learn how to remove the human brain and consciousness and keep it alive in a robot body. And he wants to do it in about 30 years.

It sounds crazy, but Itskov has support from top minds at MIT, Harvard, and Berkeley. Maybe in 30 years man and machine won't be so separate after all.

from the little mind of RJ, sunday thoughts

Ever notice that Cialis commercials have hot looking women the husbands are lusting after and Viagra has a guy starting a fire with his knife or using horses to pull out a truck out of the mud. why is that?

If you get BBC America, do you notice how much better overall the TV shows are overseas? I think it has always been that way.

When oh when will reality shows stop being produced? And on the housewives shows, the women rarely go in the sunlight because they may melt!

Do we realize that the melt down nuclear reactor is still going on and dumping spent fuel in the ocean for the last 2 1/2 years, that by now, we have all been touched by it?

I have found that if my Tv has 300 channels, I rarely watch more then 20 or so.

Sports used to be about competition and challenges and now it is more about drugs, money and whatever else. I will pass.

The game that still interests me is golf. I watch it when I can but I wish I had more time and money to play.

Changes in a career late in life is such a challenge, you can't imagine, unless you are there with me. I have burned, dismantled, and tossed away all the bridges and left them behind me. I have to succeed.

It is rare that a new movie grips and captures my attention, but with a book, it can happen at any time.

I watch the young men working around me, full of energy. I wonder if they will still have that fire when they are 6o. I hope so.

Watching a son or daughter leave for a new job and adventure is a mixed bag of feelings, wonder and amazement and pride, and a sense of loss and happiness.

Life should be easier as one gets older, after all, haven't we mastered it all? Nope, they keep changing the rules.

We watch others do what they love to do whether it is in sports, TV, movies and so on. wouldn't it be nice if we all have a chance to shine?

Back to studying and a cold beer.
