AIDs, Heart Disease, early onset Alzenheimers, all the diseases of the twentieth century?
Where did these diseases really come from?
Are they all natural? Or are they something else?
Modern medicine is bad for children and other living things.

Gates got old. People do. He retired and turned the company over to other men. In the time it took to blink, Microsoft has gone the way of IBM. It's a train wreck that may take many years to come to a complete halt - assuming Amerikwa lasts more than a few more years intact anyway. With the disastrous release of this junk software called "Vista," the entire company has officially gone off the rails under the leadership of this cokehead Ballmer, possibly the most inept CEO in the United States.
I think the real future is in Linux and BSD. At least it looks that way. Should this be taken into account when deciding on the environment for the Vault Operating System?
(Link below is to Youtube, requires broadband)
Ballmer was a public embarrassment even before the Vista debacle
The whole western world is an empire of ass-klowns like you might have expected to see during the reign of the Emperor Caligula.
Good men are tending their private gardens. They are not found in public life any more. It's not their time. It's the decline phase and they are not appropriate in the West. Bright people ... anybody who talks in complete sentences or can remember to close their fly leaving the restroom ... just doesn't fit into this nightmare. It's the coming of the long shadows.

Treason worthy of hanging :
"... urged delegates at the UN conference on climate change to ignore Washington if necessary to pursue the 'moral imperative' of a new global regime."
A proud, unrepentant traitor to his nation just like his criminal father, a convicted spy for the Soviet Union :
“find the grace to navigate around this enormous obstacle, the elephant in the room that I have been undiplomatic enough to name.”
It's about forming a new supranational global government run by crooks where you will have no representation and no accountability, just a brutal tyranny beyond the dreams of the world's worst despots :
“The truth is that is the maximum now considered possible even here in this conference is still far short of the minimum that will really solve this process. So we have to expand the limits of what’s possible. We must have the moral imagination of humankind to see ourselves as the symbol of global civilisation.”
Meanwhile, back in the real world :
Amerikwa enters Ice Age II
If you don't like the weather, just wait 12000 years and it will change
Back off man, we're scienmajistic types
The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down...but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.
CFR member Richard Gardner, Source: Foreign Affairs (CFR's journal), April l974
In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all.
Strobe Talbot, Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, Time Magazine, July 20th, l992
Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.
Henry Kissinger, Source: Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991
It is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.
George H. W. Bush addressing the General Assembly of the U.N., February 1, 1992
Many well-intentioned people are now convinced that we are living in a period of history which makes it both possible and necessary to abandon our national sovereignty, to merge our nation militarily, economically, and politically with other nations, and to form, at last, a world government which supposedly would put an end to war... Sovereignty for a nation is hard to come by and even more difficult to retain. It cannot be shared, for then sovereignty becomes something else, and, for want of a better word, when sovereignty is lessened the end-product is internationalism. Sovereignty is neither more nor less than self-government. American self-government is blueprinted in the Constitution.

It is only logical that the Insiders will try to apply the coup de grace against America through a Republican President simply because most people cannot believe that a Republican could be "soft on Communism" or would jeopardize our liberty or sovereignty. The watchdogs tend to go to sleep with a Republican in office.
Gary Allen, Source: None Dare Call It Conspiracy, p. 149
We will have systematic population reduction, forced sterilization or anything else which the planners deem necessary to establish absolute control in their humanitarian utopia. But to enforce these plans, you must have an all-powerful world government. You can't do this if individual nations have sovereignty. And before you can facilitate the Great Merger, you must first centralize control within each nation, destroy the local police and remove the guns from the hands of the citizenry. You must replace our once free Constitutional Republic with an all-powerful central government -- and that is exactly what is happening today with the Nixon Administration. Every action of any consequence, despite the smokescreen, has centralized more power in what is rapidly becoming an all-powerful central government.

I have located a supply of pen tablet computers at rock bottom prices. They're tough, reliable and fully support LAN networking out of the box. They consume tiny amounts of power and have built-in sleep and suspend modes.
Although it is now almost 8 years old, the original version of CD Commander I wrote in 1999 was a Visual Basic for DOS application using a networked ISAM database. It was very impressive and looked terrific. I never got around to working much on the data monitoring and network aspects but it was a lot easier than you'd think. It also had the same advantage as Latin for scientific classification - it is a dead language, stable and would not require endless updates and maintenance. It's very low demand on memory makes it ideal for a lot of embedded systems which hosted it in x86 compatible environments for industrial control and communication between workstations. The difference in reliability between a system like this and another running under Windows 95 or later is the sheer complexity, slowdown, memory requirements and a million things that can fail without explanation in the windows operating system at any given moment. Stuff in VB-DOS for industrial control is legendary for it's rock solid dependability. Serial communication and port access is fairly simple with VB-DOS and graphics are supported for a couple of memory efficient formats.
If I use this pen tablet as my universal work station, running the same program from any connection point in the Vault system as a controller, the best environment will be VB-DOS given the specifications for the pen tablet and other reasons listed above.
I can also develop this system fairly easily on a PC, transfer it to the Vault remotely for updating the software and pretty much support it for expansion of all kinds once it is running.
I'd like to hear what people think of this idea instead of the current CD Commander running as a 32 bit application under Windows XP or better. It may seem odd to consider but it could really be the last word in Civil Defense computer systems if it is designed right in VB-DOS.
I have been trying to locate Edison style batteries for months, even searching tips and battery reclamation points looking for discarded older forklift batteries. No luck.
There is hope on the horizon. The coming year is going to see this lithium-ion stuff available in retail at competitive prices. So maybe it's a good thing I waited before sinking another grand into batteries. A deep cycle battery with a charging time of five minutes and an expected lifespan of ten years or more was worth waiting for.
I plan to buy all new lithium ions like these early in 2008 for the Sparkgap quonset and I will be managing their charging via wind and solar around the clock with an embedded custom controller. I have almost all of the computer technology needed sitting around in pieces and fragments at the moment, just waiting for me to bring it all together in one place. I also plan to rewire the entire shelter system with relay controlled 2.1 mm jacks for 12 volt cabling to replace my old auto jack system. One thing important to know about auto jacks for 12 volt is that they stink. The poor fit and contacts inside the typical 12 volt automobile electrical wiring degrades very rapidly in continuous use with loads. The plugs frequently fail from a minor bump or the wrong angle when they are plugged in. In retrospect, like a lot of things in the shelter I just don't know what in the hell I was thinking about when I dropped all this money on 12 volt jack sockets and automobile wiring. It's a terrible system for the electronics and power.
My light, power and computing system early in 2008 is going to be perfect. This is the way I do almost everything in life. I do a first version which is just plain stupid. Then I respond to the feedback I get from realizing it is stupid to get it right on the next iteration. It's fortunate that I had seen shelters similar to the one I have now before (including Firehold Alpha) and had enough information to get the basic design, architecture and layout correct. The internals are still in development. I hope that when I am ready to document what I have done that many of you will be able to benefit enormously from all my initial mistakes. I've made lots. Luckily I got the shelter structure itself correct.
The fundamental question is whether the observed warming is natural or anthropogenic (human-caused). Lead author David Douglass said: “The observed pattern of warming, comparing surface and atmospheric temperature trends, does not show the characteristic fingerprint associated with greenhouse warming. The inescapable conclusion is that the human contribution is not significant and that observed increases in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases make only a negligible contribution to climate warming.”
Co-author John Christy said: “Satellite data and independent balloon data agree that atmospheric warming trends do not exceed those of the surface. Greenhouse models, on the other hand, demand that atmospheric trend values be 2-3 times greater. We have good reason, therefore, to believe that current climate models greatly overestimate the effects of greenhouse gases. Satellite observations suggest that GH models ignore negative feedbacks, produced by clouds and by water vapor, that diminish the warming effects of carbon dioxide.”
Co-author S. Fred Singer said: “The current warming trend is simply part of a natural cycle of climate warming and cooling that has been seen in ice cores, deep-sea sediments, stalagmites, etc., and published in hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals. The mechanism for producing such cyclical climate changes is still under discussion; but they are most likely caused by variations in the solar wind and associated magnetic fields that affect the flux of cosmic rays incident on the earth’s atmosphere. In turn, such cosmic rays are believed to influence cloudiness and thereby control the amount of sunlight reaching the earth’s surface and thus the climate.” Our research demonstrates that the ongoing rise of atmospheric CO2 has only a minor influence on climate change. We must conclude, therefore, that attempts to control CO2 emissions are ineffective and pointless. – but very costly.
I envy those with the patience to articulate what I lost interest in convincing others of a long time ago.

Here are just a few of the merits of a VAWT turbine:
Easy construction using just about anything. VAWTs can be build from plastic buckets, PVC, metal pipe, anything that is a cylinder that can be cut. The design is elegant, simple enough for any layman to understand in seconds and therefore easy to repair and replace when it becomes necessary. If the post apocalyptic world has any cylinders left in it, you should be able to build as many VAWTs as you need.
Tough enough to easily withstand conditions that would wreck a regular wind tower, even 300 mph winds. It is hardy enough to last through extreme conditions of all kinds with a longer life and lower maintenance requirements.
It is self damping in speed to avoid many of the problems associated with rotors in wind towers, meaning it is safer to operate and puts less stress on the structure which can be located closer to the ground. It has fewer moving parts to wear out, in any event. The only cost is a slightly reduced efficiency but the gain is very large.
Requires no vane to point it into the wind, which also means no slip rings! Trying to locate slip rings was one of the things that drove me to investigate VAWTs as an alternative. Slip rings are ridiculously expensive and therefore prohibitive in a system for which robustness is the primary requirement. The VAWT spins in any wind strong enough to turn it, irregardless of direction.
It can be protected from the elements, housed in a safety cage and sealed against ice, rain, moisture and grit that represents a serious degeneration over time for any instrument that relies on moving parts. It can be anchored more firmly and even camouflaged where a regular wind generator cannot be.
Check out the link to the plans and also have a search for "Savonius" wind generation. I think the alternate vertical designs may be more efficient but they are as fragile and vulnerable as the horizontal wind towers for a variety of reasons. The Savonius design looks like the way to go, although it may be optimal to have several vanes on the drum as opposed to two. I will have to do a bit more research.
How do I know? I was a secular humanist for sixteen years. A good one, too. I could eat mediocrities like Christopher Hitchens for lunch with the power of my arguments and conviction. Hitchens and Dawkins moved into that dry gulch and declared themselves sheriff only because it had become a ghost town for want of guys like me.
I think of these as the years before my brain actually switched on and began functioning. Seriously. I thought that because I was obviously doing better than the average person that I knew something. The reality is that I knew nothing. Wisdom begins with the fear of God.
The only people left who promote globowarmthink seriously are the mass media marxists, the unemployable career losers at the United Nations and their worldwide stable of useful idiots. It's all Antonio Gramsci's plan put into action to achieve world government. The sheeple don't know anything about anything and will generally follow anybody diligently who strokes their marginal and feeble brains. Ask the Bolshevists if indignant self-righteousness works as a control mechanism for the easily flattered. Forty million dead white Christian Ukrainians can't be wrong.
