What a record breaking year!

For the most part, breaking records is usually a great thing. In profit sales, sports, tv ratings, and pretty much anything else you can think of that’s positive. However, when it comes to HAARP initiated natural disasters, unless it’s a record breaking LOW, it’s never a good thing. Interestingly enough, only 4 months into the current year, and we’ve already seen several records shattered world wide. Take a gander.

TULSA, Oklahoma – Tuesday’s snowstorm set a new snowfall record in the Tulsa area.

The National Weather Service said 14 inches of snow was recorded at Tulsa International Airport.Tuesday’s snowfall sets a new record for the amount of snowfall in a 24-hour period. The previous record for Tulsa was 12.9 inches in March 1994. It also breaks the record for the amount of snowfall for the month of February.

Snowfall totals across Northeast Oklahoma:

  • Owasso – 21 inches
  • Hominy – 20 inches
  • Claremore – 20 inches
  • Skiatook – 17 inches
  • Miami – 12 inches
  • Vinita – 12 inches
  • Nowata – 11 inches

To some of you, these snow measurements may not seem like much, but trust me, it shut the state down!!! Schools were closed for nearly two weeks because the buses couldn’t get into the neighborhoods to pick the children up!

Arkansas filling station February 28, 2011

The 2011 Arkansas Earthquake was an earthquake that registered 4.7 on the Richter Scale and struck Greenbrier, Arkansas, on 28 February 2011 at a shallow depth of 3.8 km.

This earthquake is, to date, the largest of many in what is known as the Guy-Greenbrier earthquake swarm, a series of earthquakes that began in August 2010. The cause of the earthquake remains unknown, although researchers at the University of Memphis believe there is a link between the earthquakes and the production of natural gas.

* Oklahoma also go hit by a 5.4 earthquake in late 2010. After shocks were felt all of the way up to Wichita, Ks, and all of the way down to Richmond, Tx.

Queensland, Australia after Cyclone Yasi February 4, 2011

Tropical cyclone Yasi is one of the most violent storms to strike the Australian mainland in a century, has left thousands homeless, wiped out agricultural crops and disrupted mining in Queensland as it swept across the continent bound for the Northern Territory. Per Wikipedia, the damages On 3 February, total losses from the storm were estimated to reach A$3.5 billion ($3.54 billion USD). Accounting for inflation, Yasi ranks as the second-costliest Australian cyclone on record, behind Cyclone Tracy of 1974. By 5 February, A$2 billion ($2.03 billion USD) was confirmed to have been lost in agriculture, mining and local government. An additional A$1 billion has been lost in the tourism industry.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably never heard of some of the natural disasters I have listed, but I know EVERYONE knows about Japan and the Tsunami/Earthquake sandwich they received March 11, 2011.

A powerful 8.9 Richter Scale earthquake followed by a 30 foot tsunami wave has devastated and destroyed most of Japan. And to add insult to injury, Japan is now in danger of a nuclear meltdown because of the foundational damage to the nuclear reactors caused by these occurrences.

And sadly, the most recent disaster has fallen on one of the most impoverished states in the United States.

Pleasant Grove, Alabama April 28, 2011

On the evening of April 27. 2011, the southern states of Mississippi. Alabama, and Georgia were hit with a series of deadly tornadoes which have left over 300 dead and thousands homeless. Within minutes, everything these people have ever known was wiped out.

Having lived in ‘Tornado Alley’ my entire life, I’ve seen quite a few twisters, but nothing ever to this degree. The insane power this monster of destruction has is an amazing yet horrible thing to witness and watch. It almost looks like it’s alive and picking up everything in it’s path.

I know I have my theories and thoughts about this, but ‘naturally’ you can see how this just doesn’t seem natural. That tornado alone had to be at least 2 miles wide across the top. I’m no meteorologist, but it seems to me that’s almost cyclone and hurricane size.

US apologizes for infecting Guatemalans with STDs in the 1940s

This is the title of an article my friend, Genesis Gemini, found on CNN.com. Here’s the link: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/10/01/u-s-apologizes-for-infecting-guatemalans-with-stds-in-1940s/.

The long and short of the article states back in the 1940’s the scientific investigation, called the U.S. Public Health Service Sexually Transmitted Disease Inoculation Study of 1946-1948, when the drug penicillin was still pretty new, they wanted to test how good it would work for people that had syphilis, gonorrhea, and chancres. By people, I mean female commercial sex workers (hookers), prisoners in the national penitentiary (predominantly the poor that couldn’t afford proper legal representation in court), and  patients in the national mental hospital (nuff said). and soldiers (double nuff said). And when I say had the illnesses, I mean there were more than 1,600 people purposely injected with the diseases. 696 with syphilis, 772 with gonorrhea and 142 with chancres.

Here’s a direct quote for the article expressing the profound and deep regret of  our top MK altered government officials:

A statement by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called the action “reprehensible.”

“We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices,” the joint statement said. “The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala.”

President Barack Obama called his Guatemalan counterpart Friday “offering profound apologies and asking pardon for the deeds of the 1940s,” President Alvaro Colom told CNN en Espanol in a telephone interview from Guatemala City.

“Though it happened 64 years ago, it really is a profound violation of human rights,” said Colom, who said the report took him by surprise.

Clinton called him on Thursday, he said. “She too offered her apologies,” he said, adding that she told him she was ashamed the United States had been involved in the matter.

And you know what I have to say to that, right? blah, Blah, BLAH!!!!!

I just love what Hilary says in this line:

“The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala.”

Oh, really, MRS. Clinton? So, what you’re saying  is the government of the United States has just so much respect for the people of Guatemala, it infected over 1,600 poor, helpless, hopeless, and forgotten people with an incurable sexually (or governetally) transmitted diseases? Then tell us, MRS. Clinton, how much respect does the government of the United States have for it’s OWN people?

Well, believe it or not, we actually have an answer for that.

Based on the article provided by CNN (the Liberal’s favorite network), it appears the government of the great United States has quite of bit of respect for it’s people.

Thanks to the wonderful and astute Wellesley College researcher Susan Reverby, we have a slight glimpse as to exactly how much ‘respect’ the government of the United States of America has for the Black community.

This brilliant ‘revolutionary’ (I choose this adjective because what she found took a lot of work to come across, and some extreme bravery to bring to light, thus, hopefully sparking a fire for change)  found the same type of study  was conducted between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama.  These monsters allowed almost  400 poor Black men with preexisting syphilis to progress without treatment. Researchers did not infect the subjects, but they did not tell them they had the disease either. So in other words, when they found out these Black men had the diseases already, and decided, out of RESPECT, they wouldn’t inject them with it, but to better and push forward in medical research, they let them continue on with life, sleeping with whomever they chose, further passing on the disease, providing free research for the government. Way to save the tax payers a buck, huh?

Here’s a direct quote from the article provided by CNN.com:

The Tuskegee study was done under the direction of Dr. John C. Cutler, a U.S. Public Health Service medical officer who died in 2003.

“I was doing what historians do,” said Reverby, a professor of the history of ideas and women and gender issues, who has written a book on the Tuskegee study. She went to the University of Pittsburgh, where Cutler had taught, and searched through an archive of his papers.

“There was nothing on Tuskeegee in the papers, but there was this report of the Guatemala study,” she told CNN in a telephone interview. “I started to read, and I almost fell off my chair.”

She found that Cutler also led the research in Guatemala. It was carried out there, in part, she said, because prostitution was legal and prisoners were allowed to bring prostitutes in for sex.

Well, as far as I’m concerned, Dr. Cutler and Dr.Godel (‘father’ of the famed Gödel Twins from Auschwitz) had the same thing in mind. Finding those that have no power, no hope, and to them, no purpose and give them their purpose…further medical science by killing them, polluting their bodies,  and finding out what their insides look like after they’re dead. BRILLIANT!!!!

But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.
