Quantum Spin

Well, due to some spammer having found this obscure blog, I have been forced to refuse Anonymous posts. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for legitimate posters, but since I am unable to send feedback to the offending servers causing them to explode and burst into flames - well, I do what I can. Thank you to all my sincere commentators and may the spammers rot in digital agony.

But, But, But - It Was The PATRIOT Act!

In 2004, Obama criticized passing legislation without reading it, without "clear debate."

But, now that it's 2009, he has to have healthcare reform rushed through - no time to stop and read it, not time for debate, it has to be done now!

BARACK OBAMA: ...When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody
has any idea what's in them and nobody has read them.

RANDI RHODES: 14 pounds it was!

BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear
deliberation or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think that
this is in some ways what happened to the PATRIOT Act.


Now that it's healthcare, why, that's different.

Don't read those 1,000+ pages! Just pass it!

10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 -

0...all engines running...lift-off, we have a lift-off, 32 minutes past the hour, lift-off on Apollo 11...

Tower cleared...

She's lifting beautifully into the sky, a typically beautiful Saturn V launch.

If I timed this right, 40 years ago, around the time of this posting, we sent men to the moon.

This was an historic and milestone event in Man's existence; to travel to another world and return safely.

Nothing before or since can compare to this achievement.

Yet, for some reason, as of this posting, Google - a site that commemorates everything else by changing their logo - has taken no notice of this momentous event.

That is shameful.

But, their ignorance aside, this is a glorius day and, in just four days, we will have the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's first steps on a surface beyond Earth's.

Those are US flags on the Moon.
