Wonder Woman Attacks NYC! Updated

I've displayed this cover before. I found it while I was browsing through comic book covers. The cover date is January 1982, and it is issue #287.

While the building on the cover is obviously not the twin towers, (it does look a little like building 7 though)I found it intriguing . A runaway plane is about to wreck New York. Inside the plane is the goddess Diana (Wonder Woman), and the Titans of Myth (Teen Titans) are trying to get things under control. All this and the huntress too! But wait a minute, I thought Diana was the Huntress? Oh well.

I thought there might be more to this issue than meets the eye, so I sought one out and bought it.

It starts out with Donna Troy and Starfire checking out the waterfront. They are attacked by green hooded thugs, and Donna is kidnapped. It turns out it was all a plot by Doctor Cyber to get Wonder Woman to fly her invisible plane to New York. (To those of you giggling at her name, Doctor Cyber first appeared in the sixties, long before the internet was common and "Cyber" became the term we are familiar with.)

It appears Doctor Cyber's base of operations is the Pentagon, (lol) where she is performing some sort of ritual in order to take over the "invisible" plane. Cyber baby, the purple jumpsuit has got to go, but the gold mask is bitchin!

There you have it. You have just witnessed a black magick ritual designed to take remote control of an invisible plane with a goddess inside of it, and crash it into the twin towers, depicted in a comic book twenty years before 911.

If you are wondering, the Titans were able to save the people from the falling debris, and with Wonder Woman they were able to rescue Donna.


I've re sized the following pic to include the full sound effect. Above one of the towers are the letters RAS, as in Ra's, and to the right of the plane we see the infamous HH. (I'm still not sure what HH means, but I see it pop up alot.)

Spring and the Age of Aquarius

The Age of Aquarius will begin in 2012, and many think this will be the end of the world. I don't fall into this line of thinking, and here is why.

Many years ago when my now college age daughter was seven, she asked me when winter would be over. I told her the first day of Spring will begin on March 22. She was very excited the night of March 21, and the next day woke up and ran outside. It was around 32 degrees, and the trees were still bare. She came inside and accused me of lying, that it wasn't spring yet, it was still yucky old winter. I told her that spring didn't happen on one day, it was a gradual process.

I think the new age will be the same way. There will be gradual changes over the next few centuries, but December of 2012 will probably be like any other December. No tidal wave of water will rush in to take us away, but we might get some rain.

Fair Autism Media

My last post caused a little bit of a stir, which in my opinion is a good thing. While I was doing some research for that post, I was discouraged to see the majority of search results were for articles saying there is no mercury-autism link. I want to do something to balance things up a bit.

Fair Autism Media will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the link between thimerosal and autism. It contains hundreds of hours of video by scientists, parents, activists, lawyers, and politicians.

We have bought some magnets from their store. They also have the book "Evidence of Harm", as well as various videos for sale.

The site is run by parents of children with autism, and they are dedicated to their work. It's worth a look.

AP "Vaccines Don't Cause Autism, Court Says."

That's what my newspaper said yesterday. This is of course misdirection and a lie by omission.

The article reports on a court ruling that occurred in "vaccine court". For those of you who don't know, back in the 1980's the vaccine court was started thanks in part to George Walker Bush.(An interesting fact is that Bush sat on the Eli Lily board of directors at one time) You see, a vaccine manufacturer can't just be sued, the case must go through the vaccine court first. If you win you can take a tax payer funded 250k award, or decline the money and you can take the case to the regular courts. The bottom line is, to sue a manufacturer of a vaccine you must be wealthy and you must have about twenty years to spare. If you don't think that's fair, you are not alone.

The article goes on to talk about how cases of measles are on the rise and how last year a child died because it didn't receive his round of shots. It leads the reader to make a conclusion that the parents of children with autism are emotional, well meaning people who are harming the country.

The ruling found that the MMR vaccine did not cause autism in any of the children. Eh? The headline read "Vaccines Don't Cause Autism, Court Says." It should have read "The MMR Vaccine Doesn't Cause Autism, Court Says." What is the difference?

The MMR vaccine is a live vaccine. This means it contains live Measles, mumps, and Rubella strains. It never has contained the preservative thimerosal, because thimerosal is 50% Mercury, and mercury would kill the live vaccine. It's the mercury that causes autism, not the vaccine itself. It has already been proven in vaccine court.

Yes, this misleading piece of tabloid trash to which I am referring to failed to mention this fact. Doing so might have scared the herd away from taking vaccinations. In the case of Hannah Poling, it was found she had a mitochondrial disorder that was aggravated by the thimerosal, and led to autism. How many kids with autism have this mitochondrial disorder? One in 166 perhaps?

Ive heard people call the science showing the thimerosal autism link to be junk science. I challenged one such person online to find a scientific, not statistical, study that shows there is no link. He couldn't find any because none exist. It can't exist because thimerosal causes autism in certain kids.

A Serious Economic Crisis

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Looking at this with no context, you might say it looks like a binary star system, right? I am not an astrologer, astronomer, or anything like that. I do read a lot of blogs, and I've seen the star Sirius mentioned on several occasions. Sirius is a binary system, and I think it's about 8 light years away. That's about the extent of my knowledge on the subject. I wouldn't even be able to pick it out of the night sky.

This is the above image in context. You can see it's just a couple of lights. Now, the question is, did my reading about Sirius cause me to see something that wasn't there, or did it awaken me to be aware when it shows up? And what does it mean, if anything?

Why Leahy's "Truth Commision" Plan is Unacceptable

I was shocked today to learn of democratic senator Pat Leahy's plan for exposure of crimes that may have been committed by the Bush administration. The plan calls for granting immunity in exchange for testimony in the areas of warrantless wiretapping and torture.

We don't need these people to admit the truth under oath, we pretty much know the truth already. Granting immunity in exchange for testimony is a cop out, plain and simple.

Under the constitution of the United States of America, we have the right to be secure in our homes and our person and such things cannot be searched without a writ of Mandamus. If someone in a position of power violates this right, and is then granted immunity, then we really don't have the right. In fact, we don't have any rights, because if a situation dictates that one right is to be taken away, they can all be taken away. No one is above the law.

In fact, torture and warrantless wiretapping is just a tip of a very large iceberg. What is lurking under the surface of the water? Were voting machines tampered with in 2000 and 2004? Was intelligence faked in the lead up to the Iraq war? And if so, to what purpose was it faked? And why did building 7 fall at free fall speed due to fire? Why were vaccine companies granted immunity in the Patriot act?

Our economy is in a free fall, our water isn't fit to drink and our food isn't fit to eat. I demand answers, and I demand people be held accountable for their actions.The first three letters to the preamble of the constitution is "WE THE PEOPLE". Take note that it is not we the republicans, we the democrats, we the corporations, or even we the politicians. It is We The People. Our representatives are in congress to represent US. Not the banks, not the special interests, US. It is their solemn duty to investigate possible crimes committed against American citizens and prosecute when evidence is evident. A "Truth Commission" will only serve to provide a few soundbites where a few low level officials admit to wrong doing and ask forgiveness. If we are to remain a country of rights and laws we must have an investigation and prosecution if clear evidence of the violation of constitutional rights emerge.

Gregorian Monks do Metallica!

Here are some of the strangest and most wonderful cover tunes of all time.

1. Gregorian Monks do Metallica!

I was lucky enough to see Metallica in concert during the "And Justice For all Tour" back in the eighties. I never thought I would see Gregorian Monks covering one of their songs, but it comes together beautifully.

2. Paradise City In Bluegrass

Have you ever wondered what Guns n Roses Paradise City would sound like played by a bluegrass band? Outstanding stuff!

3. Led Zeppelin in Reggae!

How about Led Zeppelin's Immigrant song sung Reggae style? Not strange enough? What if Elvis was the lead singer?

4 Metallica in Bluegrass!

I started this post with Metallica, so I thought I would end it the same way. Nothing Else Matters in bluegrass!

Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact

This one isn't as prophetic as some of the others we have looked at, but I found the date September 11 1969 a bit interesting, especially since it's exactly 32 years before 9-11.

322 is a number associated with the Skull and Bones organization.

The Georgia Guidestones were erected on 3-22-80.

I don't know what it all means, if anything, but it's interesting.

Best Uses of the Moon in a Comic Book

Dedroidify posted a video of Richard Hoagland, who talks briefly about how the Moon has a huge influence on events upon the Earth. I decided to check out it's influence on comic books. I don't choose these covers, they choose themselves.

So what if he likes climbing trees and hanging around with monkeys when there is a full moon? Leave him alone I say!

This was the last issue of Moon Knight. It looks like superheroing didn't work out so well for him.

In the early days of the Batman, the full moon appeared on almost every other cover.

Hey Pharoah, she was just passed out drunk and I was carrying her home. Swear. Besides, I didn't know she was your queen. Can you please call off your dogs now?

It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's some weird mutant hybrid of the two!

Fallen Stars (Sports)

I really enjoyed the Super Bowl yesterday. As a Cincinnati Bengal fan I was required to root against Pittsburgh, but still it was an exciting game to watch.

Sadly, many of the stars from last nights game will fall from grace. It happens to regular people who are constantly told by the media, coaches, and fans that they are something more than human. After hearing this for so long, many spot stars think they are above the law. Let's take a look at a couple of past sport stars that were even more popular than the ones who performed last night. They had many product endorsements (something these companies would like to erase from memory today) and the following ads come from a comic book published in 1979.

It's kind of creepy when you look at it now isn't it? But O.J. was a heck of a football player, he was the first running back to gain 2000 yards in a 14 game season. He has recently been convicted of kidnapping and is now serving a prison term.

Pete Rose earned the nickname "Charlie Hustle" for his style of playing baseball, which was going all out on every play. He has more hits than any other player in the history of the game, yet he is denied the baseball hall of fame because he bet on baseball while he was a manager for the Cincinnati Reds.

(A note on Pete Rose, he is still loved in Cincinnati for the type of player he was, and most people have forgiven him.)
