An Observation

I noticed something about the majority of people who voted for obama. Many of them expected him to bail them out of their problems and set them up for a life of comfort if not luxury.

HellboxerThis reminded me of a little trip some of us took down to San Antonio, Texas years ago. I had a molecular frequency discriminator which claims to resonate with specific elements which you can locate using electrified dowsing rods. There are 11 provided frequencies which included; iron, silver, gold, platinum, ruby, diamond, lead and a few others I don't recall offhand.

In a discussion with friends I mentioned the machine and we tried to figure out somewhere we could go 'treasure hunting' and see if we could find anything.

One in our group knew an old family in San Antonio who had lived there for many years when it was still Mexican territory. The story went that this family had come from Spain, bought a huge tract of land and raised cattle. They were wealthy and held their wealth as family jewels and coins in a small chest.

I don't recall if it was Indians or Texans in the Spanish-American war that stormed the hacienda. Back then they had slaves and one was sent to bury the chest and return with the location of the hidden chest. The slave did bury it and came back wounded but died before he could say where it was.

This hacienda was built at the curve of a river which was now dried up. Later generations had laid down large stones, the size of an early Volkswagon, to bolster the river bank and minimize erosion.

There were three of us in the front of my truck and two in the back with the rear window open so we could communicate. During the drive we all talked then the three in front got quiet and were listening to two of the guys in the back. Both of them were planning to pay off all their bills and invest the rest of their share so they'd not have to work for the rest of their lives. They were quite serious.

It was very amusing because the trip was more of a lark than a well equipped treasure hunt which NEVER has any guarantee of paying off....and yet...and yet...these guys were thinking all their financial problems would be solved once they got their 1/6 share (family plus the five of us).

This is how I think many obama supporters think. That he would bail them out..the problem is he bailed out the wrong people and ignored all the ones who hoped they'd receive a life on easy street.

HellboxerOh, and about the treasure...we did get a triangulation which appeared to be under a big boulder. We didn't have the equipment or resources to move it, but showed the family its location if they wanted to dig it out one day and see if anything was actually there...

So we all drove back home, sunburned and some with calloused and bleeding hands from digging.

Disappointed but definitely reinforcing the cliche, 'Don't count your chickens before the eggs hatch.'

the 'get some' scam

From an email I sent out today to various friends;

Today I heard something that just made me drop to the floor laughing.

Went to see a friend who is about 72...though nothing works, he still goes after young ladies in their 20s, for pay of course, hey, it's Mexico!

We were talking about several things, a problem with his computer, sales of his Aztec knives being down, the post office ripping him off almost everytime he ships anything, etc...

HellboxerThen he mentioned that he had received a call from this 20 something year old girl with whom he had shared carnal knowledge several times..(hey, I'm being POLITE)...

He said she calls him every so often asking if he is other words, ARE YOU DEAD YET?

I asked him why, did she care for him or something and he said no, he had given her a copy of a fake insurance policy he made up and put her down as beneficiary, then he had it notarized and gave her a copy.

She thinks it is real so she slept with him several times (no charge) thinking when this guy kicks the bucket, I'm gonna get his money and stuff.

So she calls him every now and then to 'see if he is ok'....and check up on her fantasy inheritance.

Man, that is just the sickest but funniest way I think I ever heard for scoring.

I'd imagine if she ever found out she could sue him...well, in the US for sure, where you can sue for just about anything, but here I don't think it would even make it past a police complaint.

Just something funny to pass along to your friends and the cool thing, ITS TRUE!!!

Some of the people in the BCC section will know the guy I'm talking about...told him I was going to post it and he said go ahead...

Hasta Luego!!!

Saddam's magic blue stone

Came across this bizarre tale which reminded me of certain claims in magic where you can repel steel or iron blades;

Saddam, the Immortal

According to an interesting article by Sudarsan Raghavan for Mercury News, many Iraqis believe that Saddam Hussein cannot be killed. It is a belief that has been reinforced by his uncanny ability to survive whatever bombs we drop on him.

He survived (or was allowed to survive, depending on who you listen to) the first Gulf War, slipping through George Bush Sr.'s grip and remaining in power. Then he managed to evade the heavy bombs dropped in the early days of this "War for Iraqi Freedom" when coalition forces had reliable intelligence that he was meeting with his cabinet in a certain government building.

Even now that he has been captured, many Iraqis remain convinced that Saddam is immortal.

What gives him this mystical power? A magic blue stone.

Saddam had this magic stone made, so the story goes, by his favorite fortuneteller not long after he came to power 24 years ago. To be sure the stone was effective, it was tested first with a chicken. The stone was somehow placed inside the chicken, then a soldier fired at it at point-blank range. All of its feathers were blown off, but the protected chicken survived.

So Saddam had the magic stone implanted in the upper section of one of his arms, protecting him from any assault, including bullets and bombs.

"That belief," writes Raghaven in the article, "common throughout Iraq, presents uncommon challenges for U.S. and British forces as they try to persuade Iraqis that Saddam is gone and will not return.

Without a body to display, it may be impossible to overcome the mythical creation of a propaganda apparatus that was bent on showing he was a worthy heir to a long line of Babylonian kings."

An Iraqi army deserter named Adnan Mohammad Yousef told Raghaven that Saddam has seven lives and cannot die. He illustrated that belief with a story about an attempted assassination of Saddam by one of his Republican Guard.

When the soldier pointed the gun at the dictator and pulled the trigger, it jammed. Saddam then allegedly grabbed the gun, pointed it at the soldier, saying, "This is how you do it," and shot him dead.

His capture has shown that Saddam has once again escaped death - magic blue stone or no.
