What percentage of a partially eaten donut would YOU bet…

That the chemical spill which has currently gotten Monument evacuated… is going to be neatly and safely taken care of and that you’re not going to be in any danger from it?
Because the Chemical Industry, especially those divisions most closely tied to the Military, are betting a hundred percent of Your Ass that if they have a Chernobyl or Fukushima or Bhopal or Texas City happen say, in Downtown Colorado Springs, they’ll be able to cover it up as neatly as they have their other little boo-boos.
What’s that? Texas City? Oh, yeah. Not only were they experiencing a chemical spill, and arresting people for taking pictures, draining the equivalent of the weeks worth of water used in Texas City, Galveston Co Texas in sheer liquid volume of volatile petrochemicals. Volatile means they react with other chemicals very quickly, sometimes explosively. The volatility of some, like Raid and Black Flag insectides, is such that they even kill (most of) the roaches in any given area. Oh, that volatile. This was done by BP at the same time their little boo-boo Earth Day present from last year was going full blast. Still is, but reporting on the damage is being covered up like cat droppings in the litter box. On the scene police brutality to keep nosy citizens from seeing first hand what’s killing them, to a neat little YouTube channel where soothing music and deep mellow voices assure us that all is well, no need to worry, the Smart People are working on it, nothing to see here, citizen, all is Hell…

But that’s not the boo-boo I’m talking about. Some people still think about that and are still trying to get answers and get those answers to US.

No, children, The Boo-Boo in question was a long time ago. End of World War 2 long time.
A cargo ship being loaded at Texas City (Oh, did I mention also that that volatile chemical leak went directly to the Gulf too? No? Bad Me, very Naughty)
But there was a huge stack of fertilizer on the pier. The fertilizer is Ammonia Nitrate.
One of the most nitrogen rich naturally occuring chemicals. Nitrogen increases volatility as well. Plants need nitrogen in the soil to metabolize other chemicals like Oxygen, Water, carbon dioxide, sugars, starches, fiber and proteins. One way to increase nitrogen is to use legume crops on a rotation basis, beans, peas, peanuts, clover…
Another is to add Anhydrous Ammonia. Much like Ammonia Nitrate it has a higher percentage of its mass in Nitrogen. Difference being Ammonia Nitrate has one extra nitrogen atom in the molecule and Anhydrous has one less hydrogen atom than the ammonia you’re accustomed to using to clean your glass.
And then there’s Nitric Acid. Used in, among other things, production of fertilizer, refining metals, making Explosives ooooo…

Bet some of the smarter readers were wondering when I was going to bring it back to all that Ammonia Nitrate, just a’ sittin’ on the dock of the bay, in the very Hot Texas Sunshine, high explosive Ammonia Nitrate, just heating up…

Now, children, what do YOU think happened on that fateful day?

From Wikipedia:

The Texas City Disaster is the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history. The incident took place on April 16, 1947, and began with a mid-morning fire on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp which was docked in the Port of Texas City. The fire detonated approximately 2,300 tons of ammonium nitrate[1] and the resulting chain reaction of fires and explosions killed at least 581 people.[2] These events also triggered the first ever class action lawsuit against the United States government, under the then-recently enacted Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), on behalf of 8,485 victims

Oh NO! Not the Class Action Lawsuit! OMG that paved the way for all those Indian peasants who were the survivors of the Bhopal chemical leak from a Union Carbide plant to Oppress the Poor, poor victimized by a lawsuit (where they had to pay an outrageous sum of less than three hundred dollars apiece for Dead Children) Corporate Sucks! Wicked, Bad, Naughty Tort Laws, assuming that People had the same right to petition the government for redress of grievances as the Corporation does!
And, to further PISS OFF the Tort Reform faction of the Tea Party, it was at a time when safety regulations were blatantly ignored.

Note the date, (of the Texas City disasters, both of them) April 16th. Let’s go to the Terrorist Wing of the TeaParty/Millitia/Minutemen Republicans. On April 19th 1995 Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols and an unidentified Third Murderer detonated a truck full of Ammonia Nitrate mixed with diesel fuel in front of a federal building in Oklahoma City, aiming for the IRS and BATF offices. Which were virtually untouched.
What WAS “touched” were the buildings across the street, and the offices facing the explosion on either side. One of which was a Day Care Center.

WHY do Right Wing Terrorist Freaks hate American Children?

But they were loading the ship, not unloading. The Ammonia Nitrate had come down from Nebraska on a rail line very similar to the one that passes through both Downtown and Monument. Like the one where a chemical train made a boo-boo today in Monument and could just as easily have been Denver, or Pueblo, or El Paso Texas.
Accidents happen, sure. And the more you push your luck, the more times the accidents happen.
This one just happened to happen, at at time when Republican TeaBag Fanatics are screaming that they should be allowed to slash safety and environmental regulations even further, that they have a God-Given RIGHT to poison our water land and air, a RIGHT to risk and sometimes accomplish Killing us and our children, and that we, in contrast, have a Right To Shut the Hell Up About It. And we’d better not dare file a claim for compensation when they do it to us and our kids either. They are the Royal Corporations, Bow Before Them, O Ye Peasants!

Russian Airport reaction: From the reactionaries.

Which in their customary thought processes, comes out as confusion. For a long while they’ve been vacillating, our Dearest Redneck Leaders that is. They praise the Putin-Medvedev-KGB response to the theatre hostage situation, where they killed civilians to get at the terrorists, then a school with the same methods, same results… In response to REAL Caucasians who formerly had, until being rolled over by the Russians under the Tsars and kept a part of Russia under the Soviets and still are, much like the much booed Soviet takeover in Afghanistan which mirrors the Current NATO takeover, Where “our” current enemies were THEIR enemies… they had been sovereign nations. Then the Right Wing Reactionaries condemn the Russian government for being simultaneously too lenient and too hard-line. WTF? How Hard-Core Repressive Does One Have To Be To Satisfy These Jackasses?

This attack occurred in the waiting area where people were queued up waiting to be poked, prodded, stripped, x-rayed and fondled by the Russian equivalent of TSA. So what next, what levels of “security” will suffice? a buffer zone around the buffer zone?

Having to hire extra uniformed thugs to staff the new protocol and the buffer zones that will expand ever outward around them?

A perpetually replicating concentric circle, what happens when the borders of the safety zone collide with the borders of other safety zones, do the uniformed thugs declare inter-agency war on each other?

All that extra staffing, they’ll need to hire extra Security Screen personnel to do background checks on the New Hires. And of course constantly monitor them.

Spies to keep track of the other spies. If I were to write a computer program that does the same thing it would take all the space in each infected computer in a matter of hours. Trillions of bytes of replicated, duplicated effort.

And this in the post-Capitalist economy wherein Ponzi Capitalism crashed and burned.

Again.

Perhaps in its final death throes.

You on the Capitalist side of the argument, you can’t afford the security measures that would make your stolen gold and stolen oil safe. You don’t have enough money and guess what?

Your usual method of securing extra capital, Conquest? ain’t going to work either because you’ve already stolen all the money in the world.

There’s nothing left for you to steal.

Now for the REALLY sad part. Remember World War One? Well, unless you’re about a hundred and twenty years old you probably don’t.

But World War One was BEFORE there were any socialist economies active. All the belligerent parties were Capitalists who banked in the same system.

And they ran into essentially the same problem, all the resources were locked into either your own account, or those of competing corporations nations. No new capital to sustain the unsustainable.

Money borrowed from people who had in turn borrowed. No principal left, just an upward spiral of increasing interest.

What are Bloated Capitalist Big-pigs to do in such a scenario? Exactly what they did in 1914, mobilize their hordes of Peasants to march off and slaughter other hordes of Peasants in order to seize the Hoards of their Whored masters.

Soylent Green is PEOPLE.

Indictment for Times Square ham actor

Gee, you would think that the people who make money off continued warfare, you know, would hire better talent. Faisal Shahzad allegedly graduated from an American university with an engineering degree and knows nothing about how to set a very large very quick fire using gasoline fumes and a spark. Allegedly also trained as an “explosives expert” by al Qa’eda, since when? A lot of the bombs going off in Iraq, (depending on whose narrative, ALL of them) are designed and deployed by al Qa’eda. Very efficient, very deadly. Not many misfires.

The “trained al Qa’eda expert” somehow missed the notions of stealing a car to transport the alleged “bomb”, stealing explosives, buying black powder untraceably at a gun show, instead of firecrackers, I was about to say “either” didn’t leave real gasoline or…? There isn’t any other to match “or”. A car filled with gasoline fumes, propane fumes, air and with a spark that enough to (allegedly) ignite the fuses on fireworks would have exploded.

There would have been People-burger embedded in the interior walls of the surrounding buildings, the exterior walls would have been blown in and the people-burger.

He also turns and SMILES for the security camera at the fireworks stand. Mugs and hams it up for the security cameras on the street where he parked the car with the Very Big and Very Obvious so-called “timer” visible from the windshield and in the entrance to the alley where he “made his getaway” then, after three days, his picture all over the internet, billboards, on TV, casually tries to board an airplane to Riyad.

Who does shit like that? Somebody who’s pretending to be a Mad Bomber and wants nationwide attention to a “bomb plot”.

Who pays for it, sets it up? Somebody or a collection of Somebodies who is/are making money from terrorism. The ones who made out like the Bandits they truly are, with War Profiteering and selling useless Junk Profiteering for the Police State, are a who’s who of American Corporate Elite. And career Police State goons like Homeland (in)Security and the Pentagon.

A few likely scenarios… The Ham Actor get’s convicted in a show trial, is carted off in a black sedan and never seen again, probable cause is that he’s released as soon as nobody’s looking, given his paycheck and his plane ticket to Bumfukt Egypt.

The entire scam is revealed as a scam, somebody with an impressively large title at DHS or the Pentagon says it was just a test, Homeland Security, FBI and the NYPD performed their jobs well, much morality play crap about “It COULD have happened if not for the brilliant yet underfunded and shackled by Civil Liberties Police State Apparatus.”

OR

Almost same scenario, “The DHS and FBI failed Miserably, but could do better with more funding and fewer Civil Liberties”

And in any of the three cases handed a blank check.

A quick and, believe me, not very willing reference to IDF and Israel in all of this. Because somebody tried to redirect the theme of the last few posts questioning this SCAM to the Israel/Palestine issue, heavily weighted in favor of “proving” that IDF are just a bunch of lovable goofs, nice Jewish boys who try their very best not to commit any war crimes. I had to pointedly bring it back to the central theme that this whole “bomb” incident stinks like last months sushi.

Aside from the pro-IDF “info-warrior” putting that link in, there’s nothing linking Israel to the “bomb plot” SCAM.

Nor to the Panty Bomber nor to the Denver man allegedly trying to make a bomb from Nail Polish Remover, bought in tiny amounts at Dollar Stores, again mugging for the cameras, even though the chemical needed (methyl ether Ketone) can be bought in five gallon cans, no questions asked, at any WalMart, KMart, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, etc etc etc. in America.

We’re being sold a long string of really incredibly stupid lies, but you know how? Chemistry and other science classes aren’t required in schools across the nation. Most Americans haven’t learned anything at all about basic chemistry. Bombs are really simple and we’re being told that only “Experts” with advanced knowledge can put one together.

It’s a very large stinky crock o’ Shit.

Update on Times Square Poseur… Smile for the camera!

As predicted, the Anti-Immigrant faction of DumFox Nation have pounced on the immigrant status… actually, long time naturalized citizenship, of the Alleged Taliban.
 
More and more I get the feeling that ICE and DHS set this up as a False Flag to end all False Flags. Hired a swarthy looking fellow chosen at random. The picture of him at the Fireworks Stand in Pennsylvania, for instance, turns to the camera and smiles…

That’s a stupid cliche there. Just like every other cliche they’ve popped off on us about the “mad bomber”. Along with the Dollar Store Bomber with his Nail Polish Remover and the Panty Bomber with his smoldering… well, you know.

Burn the Reichstag without having to lose valuable buildings. Clever.

Oh, and lest we forget, the DumFox Noise Nutwerx… Not a political force sez ye? But they Aaargh, sez me.

The Agent Provocateur was here in America before Obama was even a Senator yet somehow his immigration, his attending college apparently, unlike George Bush, on MERIT, is an Obamanation Plot.

Much like the Birth Certificate non-starter, they need no actual proof of anything to set their Mob Followers to slobbering like a pack of starving wolves on a pork chop.

And conveniently right at a crucial moment when a long-planned Racist Immigration Law gets passed in Arizona.

I’m not eager to make my next set of predictions on this one.
