Speak Out 6/13/09

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Need a skate park

WHY doesn't Cape Girardeau have a skate park? The little spot on Middle Street is not a skate park, and I don't think it is in the best place for children to hang out. Maybe something should be built by the water park.

Motorcycle noise

I am blind. I have people read the editorials of the Southeast Missourian to me. I was listening to one the other evening while sitting outside a cafe on Main Street. The editorial had to do with Cape Girardeau's noise ordinance. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what the theme of the editorial was because I couldn't hear what the reader was saying due to ear-splitting noise emanating from what sounded like the motorcycles.

Nuclear threat

DO you really think Israel is going to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons when it has already promised it's going to destroy Israel and then come after the United States? We're going to pay a terrible price. There's going to be a nuclear showdown because we have a weak president. The Jews are not going to be destroyed just to keep somebody like that in public office.

Thanks for mowing

I want to thank the Missouri Department of Transportation for mowing the new section of Highway 72. The new grass was getting so tall you couldn't see to get out of your driveway. I hope MoDOT keeps up the good work.

Beautiful yard

OUR dear friends and neighbors, Ken and Myrna Grigsby on the corner of Cambridge Drive and Valley Forge Lane have the most beautiful yard ever. The neighbors and folks who walk this route daily enjoy the colorful flowers and appreciate the hard work involved to accomplish such a beautiful yard. Drive by. You'll enjoy seeing it.

Beautifying Jackson

THANKS to a Master Gardener, we have a beautiful landscape to walk in at the Jackson post office. Now do the side that's visible from the road. What a beautiful Jackson High School we have now. I hope when the economy gets better the school district can build a better football stadium and do something about the old gym. It looks pitiful. What a beautiful structure the new gymnasium and art building are.

Giving credit

JEANNIE Eddleman, the founder of the Cat Ranch Art Guild, should be credited with coming up with the idea of the First Friday shuttle service. She's been pressing for more than a year, through the group, to have a shuttle service.

Ooooh, the puppet masters are controlling all of our lives and we are just the sheep followers. What a pathetic, frustrated, hopeless and depressed human being you must be. My condolances.

There you go again calling me names Slim.That's not very nice of you. First you called me a twit, then tonight you say I am pathetic, hopeless, and depressed. I am none of those things. But you did nail it on the head with frustrated though. I'll give you that.

Frustrated, that people are waking up, but not fast enough to see the prison planet we are starting to live. Frustrated that my kids and grand kids are going to live in a high tech prison world where freedom has been abolished and most of their earnings will be stolen from them, if things do not change.

The difference between you and Huxley, is that you say that you really did want what was best for your kids. I don't know you or your family Slim, but I'll take you word on that.

Of course I can't be 100% sure of Huxley's motives, but I can speculate from the type of people he associated with and from his family background and the philosophy of his time.

He came from a family of eugenicists. It was all the rage of the intellectual elite including the Huxleys, Darwins, and Galtons. They all hung around together. The Huxley family believed that the lowest classes of citizens were genetically inferior and by implication should be weeded out and not permitted to procreate.

The Huxleys were not alone in wanting to cull the "undesirables" they were forced to breath the same air as. Eugenics was all the rage amongst the intellectual inbred elites especially in Europe. The open practice of the Huxley's eugenics beliefs sort of fell out of favor though after Hitler took the practice to the ultimate extreme, you might say.

So the eugenicists had to gussy up their image and had to start acting like they cared about the under classes instead of wanting to exterminate them and be associated with Hitler. They started using names like social Darwinism in 1944 as a cover for their devious dogma. Aldoux Huxley's brother was the first director of UNESCO. Dig deep in to that organization's ideas and structure for a hair raising experience.

The Huxleys had a long family history of mental illness and depression, most likely caused by not branching too far off the family tree for their spouses, you might say. They also had delusions of self righteousness and grandeur like so many other rich elite in-breds have.

I don't for one minute believe that Aldoux Huxley gave one hoot in h*ll about warning the profane of anything in his speeches or novels to help us. He was just giving us some predictive programming of what he knew was in store for us. He knew what was in store because he ran with the folks who were developing those things to enslave us.

Predictive programming just gets people prepared mentally in the back of their minds to accept evil things when they happen. And it trains the scoffers and skeptics to rebuff the alarm sounders like me, when the programs are to be implemented.From the looks of things today with so many people saying that there is not an esoteric evil elite who want to control everything and that we are not losing our freedom, it has worked.

And no Slim, I was never a big fan of Art Bell even though I listened time to time. Art Bell has too close of ties with a certain secret society and is part of the problem. He got where he was because he was a team player, but acted like he wasn't. Sort of like Huxley did.

...you got me there for a couple hours...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:42 AM

You're right, either Cape or Jackson needs a skate park. There's a small skating park in the Jackson City park, but the kids need a safe place to meet and get exercise at the same time.

-- Posted by redpen on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 9:05 AM

In 1953 the C.I.A. instigated the over throw of Iran's highly educated legitimate leader, Mohammad Mossadaq. Mossadeq did not agree that Iran's oil belonged to Great Britain and the U.S. and that Iran was getting ripped off from the profits.

This U.S. instigated coup d'etat which brought in the U.S. controlled puppet Shah of Iran and his terrorizing secret police ( Savak) never set well with the Iranian people. That's the biggest reason Iran threw the Americans out and had the hostage crisis in 1979 with the take over of our embassy and the installation of another brutal leader, the Ayatollah Khomeini. It's no wonder a bunch of the older people of Iran don't trust this country very much.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 9:33 AM

Sorry Rick. I admit I have a hard time condensing my thoughts and am a bit long winded. I'll try to work on that.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 9:35 AM

Good morning all! ☺

Need a skate park...That one off Broadway (could be Middle) is a heck of alot more than they had when I was young. Looked pretty cool to me.

Motorcycle noise...good grief, here we go again.

Nuclear threat...I have to admit, when people/countries start talking about nuclear/biological weapons it makes me nervous.

Thanks for mowing...☺

Beautiful yard....☺

Beautifying Jackson...OK, does anyone else have a problem with the 'native' flowers/bushes? How about that buffalo grass? I personally don't find it very appealing.

Giving credit...who? pass.

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 9:53 AM

This just in from an unimpeachable source:

1. The sky is falling.

2. Abandon all hope.

3. We are doomed I tell you, doomed.

4. Woe is us.

5. The end is near.

Tape at ten... Stay tuned for further developments; that is all...

-- Posted by D'oh on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 10:05 AM

MeLange, sorry dear, you lost me. You live on Cambridge/Valley Forge or u enjoy indigenous plants/grass?

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 10:11 AM

MeLange, I'm sure your yard is beautiful! I just don't care for the Jackson Post Office landscape or the grass in the median of the new exit. Apparently Jackson/Conservation Dept. are really proud, there's a HUGE sign: BUFFALO GRASS! ☻

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 10:23 AM

Wheels, I'm not complaining, merely giving my opinion. I wasn't going to plant Thistle, I was just weighing my options. No matter, I told ya I went with a retaining wall. Geez...it seems indigenous plants are a 'hit' around here. lol

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 10:52 AM

Need a skate park: Skate parks are for hooligans and trouble makers. We need a skate building, like Kingsway Skateland! Not some place that condones brats.

Motorcycle noise: Isn't there also a noise ordinance against your mouth? From people like you, come more stupid laws.

Nuclear threat: Pfftt!

Thanks for mowing: There's some hazards like that here in the city.

Beautiful yard: We all needs this type of yard.

Beautifying Jackson: Come on Jackson, get with the plan! Whinge, Complain, Whinge, Complain...Oh you Jackonites! You this, you that...whinge, complain! So...how do you like it?? LOL!

Giving credit: Cat Ranch? Is this a combo of a Cat House and the Chicken Ranch?

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 11:19 AM

Thistle??? Why...I'd rather have a chicken.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 11:22 AM

"Mega, thanks. There's a similar view at my house minus the tat. Tat's make women look trashy. Nasty is good, but trashy is not."

-- Posted by Just__Me on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 10:45 AM

Isn't there a song about, "I like my women just a little on the trashy side?"

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 11:33 AM

Anyone going to that 70s/80s party at the Show-Me Center?

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 11:45 AM

...all of the rain we've been having , anything should grow...buffalo grass is like junk mail , once you have it , it keeps on coming...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 12:38 PM

Mr. Nall, I thought you lived in Advance. Hmmm, that's what I get for trying to 'keep up'.

MeLange, I like 'cookie cutter', nice/clean. I'm not impressed with the buffalo grass, it's brown, sparse. I like my grass lush. Might I add, they, the city spends alot of time out there 'looking' at it, you would think it would look a lil' better. Ahhh, well....different strokes for different folks, that's all! ☻

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:15 PM

Megal, there is nothing wrong with 'skaters'. They are very passionate about their sports and do not harm anyone, besides themselves. They would not be such a 'nuisance' if facilities were available to them. I don't see near as many on the streets/parking lots since they built the skate park in Jackson. I am not a skater so it may be 'lame' but at least there is one.

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:22 PM


You know me, gotta keep the controversy rolling. I'm down to three, may find a fella to keep them next week.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:41 PM


Skaters are a public nuisance. How are our road supposed to accomodate all of these bicycles? Skaters? Walkers? The buck has to stop somewhere! Skate Boarding is hereby banned henceforth! Off with their heads!

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:43 PM

Ahh Yess! It's going to be good to be the King.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:58 PM

I Decree...

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:58 PM


I am afraid it may already be too late.

-- Posted by RA on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 2:07 PM


Unfortunately "date nights" are now non-existant with my wife's condition. I'm probably going to a hootenanny instead, but the 80s music could be thought provoking if we're talking Wham, Flock of Seagulls, or Boy George. On second thought, I best stick with the hootenanny.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 2:16 PM

Ummm ... thanks for the words to 'Addicted' last night, Just_Me ... I'm too old to actually blush, but I tried for a minute or two there. Kinda miss being able to blush ... or maybe it's missing the fact that ... not much in today's world is blush-inducing anymore?

Thanks for the mini-history on the Huxley's, Info. I didn't know any of that! Am, sadly enough, in agreement with "Predictive programming just gets people prepared mentally in the back of their minds to accept evil things when they happen." Apparently it works really well, too ... evidenced by being able to realistically look back over the decades (centuries?) and understand how 'we' came to be where 'we' are.

King Megal, The Cat Ranch (Marble Hill) is an organization for local artists ... MH's main claim to fame is the artist whose 'ranch' it was ... sounds like he wasn't much into 'ranching' or 'farming,' or much of any kind of work except art--which he was good at.

How on earth did you find this marvelous film, Wheels? Wish everyone in this country, including our government employees, could be forced to view it at least once a year. See? Even in 1948 someone suspected ... kind of what Info (& others) has said.

-- Posted by gurusmom on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 2:39 PM

Be careful BN1401, you just might push InfoWarrior over the edge. Would you want that on your conscience?

You must be part of the esoteric eveil society he was talking about!

-- Posted by slim_pickens on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 2:57 PM


Sometimes my pretentious and warped sense of humor is the only thing keeping me going. Dark comedy, the story of my life.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:06 PM

What's a BN1401? Cat Flu?

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:08 PM

Ohh never mind, I got it confused with Cat Scratch Fever, BN1402

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:08 PM

GurusMom, I must admit I like that song as well. (blush) ;o)~ How's the company? Are you ready to split, yet? lol

-- Posted by Turnip on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:10 PM


Not to worry; he's not close to the edge like someone who always seems to come crawling out of the abyss to spew forth his hatred, fear mongering and invective to the point to where he is banned like OpNo. I do find the whole NWO and "Intellectual Elite" and all such to be amusing to put it mildly. I am just tired of the whole "Black Helicopter" believers. "Info Warrior", always found such self descriptors a bit odd, unlike some, who have gone over the edge, can be spot on and in the past have seen him carry on quite intelligent conversations. Of course once you reveal your doubts about his "philosophy" that will end in all likelihood as he does get a bit touchy to say the least.

Of course we must be careful when making judgments on someone else's sanity, for we may not know ourselves on which side of that line we might be.


Think back to your working days in the past and the meaning of BN1401 will be quite evident.

-- Posted by D'oh on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 3:37 PM

Hey Slim. President Kennedy believed that there are secret societies and conspiracies just like I do. Was he a Twit, pathetic, and hopeless too?

Check out what he said to a convention of newspaper people.


-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 4:33 PM

G-Mom. Have you seen this documentary on CIA mind control that was on National Geographic a while back? When you get a chance take a look. Our CIA experimented on our own military, prisoners, and even un-suspecting private citizens on mind control techniques. They used powerful drugs, and physical and mental torture. This is a 5 part series of 10 minutes each. torture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8uh570RY...

Even Clinton apologized for the MK-Ultra mind control experiments. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTiONdJJR...

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 4:44 PM

BN1401. You are a fair minded soul. I respect other people's opinions that differ from mine. I understand that some of the things I believe to be true are pretty far out there and can draw a load of criticism and ridicule and rage against me. I know some of the things I say cause some people pain, but that is not my intent. But I will speak out while I still can.

All I want is freedom from repressive government intrusion into every aspect of our lives. I don't like to be treated like a criminal and terrorist and be put on a watch list because I protest the high tech prison they are putting us. I resent having our money stolen from us, and I despise the perpetual wars. I hate that many in the government think the 2nd ammendment should be thrown out.

I never claim to know all truth because I don't. I state my beliefs and try to back them the best I can with reference and reason. As far as being on the edge, I doubt that there are many people more laid back than I. I will spend a couple of more hours on the internet reading tonight and then will listen to a couple of hours of Chopin or Mozart or play my guitars and have a restful sleep.

Over the last 35 or 40 years, I have done hundreds of hours of university library research on the topics about which I talk using historical hard to find out of print books and periodicals. I have a library of hundreds of books and dozens of conspiracy and historical videos. However,I don't agree with everything I read and hear about from others about the conspiracies that I talk about on here either.

I don't expect anyone to believe me just because I say it's so. I don't like the thought of some of the things that I believe the government has done to us and wish they weren't true too.

It would be a whole lot less painful and easier for me to think that it was only outside terrorists who prey on us rather than elements of our own government doing it. I'm not saying there aren't some real outside terrorists who wish to harm this country either by the way.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 6:00 PM

I'm flabbergasted. I have no clue what BN1401 refers too. Seeing I still work, I'm drawing a complete blank.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 6:04 PM

To use the only new America speak I know; OMG, I did my first funkle. They say that you never forget the first time. Let's see. Sat. June 13,2009 at 6pm....

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 6:09 PM


I violated my policy and read your post, most of with which I agree. I just don't buy into the conspiracy theories. Not that I don't think that there are some really bad people in government or in positions of "power", but because I have worked in government to know first hand how incompetent those individuals are. Any evil they do will be mostly accidental because of their own ineptitude or lack of foresight rather than any evil "genius" they possess. I fear more from an uninformed electorate than just about anything else.

I do have mixed emotions about "government" as I view it as a necessity; just not so much of it.


I was referring to your previous profession.

-- Posted by D'oh on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 6:38 PM

Wheels, I kept the website so I can send it to others ... Some may scoff at it (I could name some) but maybe, in some small way, they can comprehend the message--although TripleS maybe be correct, and it's too late to benefit/learn from it anyway.

Company left today, Turnip (You're still young enough to blush? ~wink~) ... in our truck! NOW how am I going to bring home the new grill and bed I wanted to get Tuesday? Guess he enjoyed us, as while here, he bought a house and is going back to MN to pack up his tools & bed and move down ... Hard to imagine being 74 years old and running away from home (and wife), isn't it? Oh! AND he forgot his cell phone charger thingie, and his MEDS (except for his insulin)! Interesting few days here ...

-- Posted by gurusmom on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 8:56 PM

Last one tonight (I hope):

No, Info, I haven't seen that CIA documentary--but I seem to recall a little about those 'experiments' ... and I know things like that can (and have, and may still) happen. Always have tended to be skeptical of many things ... even when I'm inclined to believe them ... Not sure that makes much sense--would that be something like a Doubting Thomas maybe, or just being cynical? Will go into your links later, maybe tomorrow. Not feeling real spiffy tonight. Will say that your thoughts/comments give ME much food for thought ... and so much I do agree with (like our perpetual wars) ... and what has almost become total government control over our lives AND our minds.

Deliberate or not, BN1401 ... I've seen and thought a lot about how our government--politicians--have changed our country and our personal attitudes/beliefs. It's sometimes hard to think that some of the things that have been done were in error ... a lot done to garner voter support. Hmm ... Which came first: Political Parties discovering and supporting what certain people wanted to hear/believe in, or people accepting what the Parties wanted them to believe in? Trying not to be too lengthy or 'deep' here ... so I won't make a list. Do I hear sighs of relief? ~smiling~

Darn! I keep forgetting ... BETHIE! Such a delightful picture of Daegus! Thanks for posting that ... Looks like he's having a super time!
