Government tower collapse theory is nonsense
The WTC towers could not have collapsed at a free fall rate without some help. This is easy to prove with a simple thought experiment and some easy mathematics.

9/11 Investigator 11.09.2004 14:38
Three years after "Sept. 11", Left still has its head buried in the sand
From the very beginning, the events of Sept. 11, 2001, have been mysterious. Who hijacked the planes? Where did all the missing planes end up? How did such small impacts bring down such huge buildings? What hit the Pentagon? "Abyssmal" is the best word to describe both the official government commission and the media's efforts to answer these, or any of the other many questions surounding the events of that day. The mainstream left media has been most disappointing of all for many of us wanting to know what happened, and bring the true criminals to justice. Publications like the Nation, the Progressive, Common Dreams, etc., etc., and well-respected figures like Noam Chomsky, who are normally quite critical of the government's explanations for anything, have refused to go anywhere near the topic of Sept. 11. Even though these leftist voices have pointed out continually how the government lies about nearly everything most of the time, suddenly, all questions stopped, and the official story (a ridiculous conspiracy theory about 19 Arabs with box-cutters) became somehow sacrosanct, beyond doubt, and not to be inspected at all.

When 50% of New Yorkers believe the Bush administration consciously allowed Sept. 11 to happen, and want a real investigation to happen, how can the left continue its bizzare avoidance? Alas, with this central question of our day, the Left has proven (once again) its moral and intellectual bankruptcy.

Our Changing Climate : a summary review
Sometimes it seems to me that people have been misled by climate modeling computer software and consequently believe that climate change and global warming are problems that will develop over 50 or 100 years (and so you sometimes hear people talking about our 'responsibility to our grand children'). A mythology then develops that allows climate change to rapidly advance while many people remain unaware of the scope of the developing problems.

Humboldt Sheriff's pepper spray attack blinds collective vision
When Humboldt Sheriff deputies Q-tip swabbed chemical pepper spray into the eyes of forest defenders, the collective vision of people everywhere was blinded with searing pain. People who see the problems caused by corporate logging (Maxxam/Pacific Lumber) are using their bodies to protect the trees. The pepper spray eye swabbing response by the Sheriffs shows their fear of our collective vision, they want people to be blinded to the truth..

NBC Is Confused About What Constitutes News
I was at a nabor's this morning for breakfast. NBC news was on (via KGW). A would-be "news" story was about a "new" ready-bag of stuff (yeh, duct tape & stuff) which people should buy to Be Ready for an attack (shudder). Such kits have been available for eons, but NBC thinks this is "news". Here's the kicker. The "reporter" said that the bags are available at "select stores such as this wal-mart". Uh-huh. A stench was apparent. Then the source of the stench appeared, as the next commercial break was an ad for, tuh-duh, wal-mart! I rarely watch tv, so maybe this co-mingling of commerce & "news" happens all the time. However, i was shocked, to be honest, that something so blatant & clumsy was perpetrated, & that the bogus nature of corporate "news" would be so obvious.

Moveon.org Does More Harm Than Good
Just like John Kerry's adolescent attack on George Bush's middle initial W. earlier this week where he described the W. standing for Wrong about the war in Iraq, Wrong about the economy etc. etc. Moveon.org has resurrected their failed adolescent attack on George Bush's Air Guard record by supporting a group called Texans for Truth. In an election that is turning out to be more about the person running rather than the important policies that this election hinges on - the corporate media is playing the willing messenger, handing the feces to the candidates and their designated 527s.

Occam's Razor - Slicing Up The Bush Administration
Dilbert English pilosopher William Occam had several pronouncements of logic that have worked their way into the mainstream, neo-intellectual vocabulary--"entities must not be multiplied beyond what is necessary" and "it is vain to do with more what one can do with less." Perhaps his greatest aphorism, that "the simplest theory is usually the best," should be applied to the actions of the Bush Administration.
