Fahrenheit 9/11 (wear a gas mask)
07/11/2004

wantedposter (24k image)
Last night Super Spy Chick and I put on some street clothes, and we went to see the new movie by Michael Moore, Fahrenheit 9/11. We got to the theater about 20 minutes early, and grabbed a perfect center aisle seat. The movie has been out about 2 weeks, but every seat in the movie house was taken. This movie is selling out this far from the release, I was amazed. As soon as we got seated I started to feel weird. I didn't think much of it though, as I often feel weird. The movie started, and in detail shows the disturbing connections the Bush family's private business world has with the Bin Ladens and the Taliban, and how it is intertwined in Saudi Arabia investors. One can put the information together that the Bush familys allegiances are to the people who have billions of dollars invested in their businesses. The movie goes on until you believe that this Iraq war is just to please the Saudis, and to have access to the abundant oil in Iraq. It also shows George W's and Cheney's business relations with United Defense, Homeland Security and Halliburton Inc., the companies selling tanks to the war effort. Both George W and Cheney are profiting from this war, and the information is not secret or hidden away. Here in the SF Bay Area, this movie is preaching to the choir, as San Franciscans marched and protested against George's inauguration and stopped traffic on the Bay Bridge to protest the war right from the start.

As I watched the movie, my weird feeling became worse. I started to get a heavy dull throbbing headache, that centered in my eyes. I became jittery and nauseous. My muscles began to ache, especially my jaw. I looked over at Super Spy Chick, and she was rubbing her forehead too. By the end of the movie, I was ill and Super Spy Chick had a huge headache. On the way out, the lady that was seated next to me phoned someone on her cell phone and said, "Hey, I'm on my way home, I'm not going out. I have a huge headache."

That's when it dawned on me what may be happening. I was convinced that the theater house was poisoned! How perfect! The Bush administration is very upset that a movie with this information is being released just before election time. But they are a smart and opportunistic group. They know the only people who are inclined to see such a movie are already anti-Bush. What better way to round up all those who do not support George W, and poison them?

After the movie let out, I went out in the lobby, bought a bottle of water, sat down and just thought. There was about 30 minutes before the next screening, so after the clean up crew came out with their brooms and bags, I slipped back in to take a look around while the house lights were up. Super Spy Chick stayed by the theater door so she could alert me if anyone came. I looked here and there, until I noticed the rectangular grills that cover the air conditioning ducts. I stood up on the arm of the chair at the end of the aisle to peek inside the duct. Using the small flashlight I carry, I could look inside each A/C duct. On the third try, in the air duct nearest to the center of the room (where I was seated) I found a small cardboard box filled with a grey-blueish powder. I slipped the entire box into a zip lock baggie, and exited.

When I got home I was very ill, I was shaking all over and needed a shower just to relax. When I got out, I felt a little better, but was still very headachey. I wanted to analyze the mysterious blue powder before I went to bed, so I got out my Syncrometer and pathogen samples. A Syncrometer is an experimental device that has not been approved by the FDA as a diagnostic tool, but I have come to rely on the device. It works quite simply. The Syncrometer has two square plates. One can test if anything is in anything. For instance, you can put a sample of a substance like Propyl Alcohol on one plate, and a Twinkie on the other plate, and the device will give a positive or negative reading. This way you can know if your Twinkie has any Propyl Alcohol in it. The unit is also handy for testing if a pollutant is in your body's tissues. One simply holds on to a copper handle that puts their body into the Syncrometer circuit.

This is all I tested before I went to bed: I wanted to know if the blue powder was in me, and it was. I found the mysterious dust in my white blood cells, meaning my immune system was attempting to remove this powder. I also tested the powder to see if it was anthrax, or any other common agent, but I did not get a positive reading from any of the pollutant samples I keep for my forensics work. I needed to hit the hay, so I decided to send the powder off to a local lab to have it tested.

I think that it is very important to see this movie Fahrenheit 9/11, but you may want to wear a gas mask when you do. I think that it is very dangerous to round up a whole room full of anti-Bush people. It's just too easy to eliminate them. What would happen to this November's vote if every person who has seen this movie mysteriously died?

It's a dangerous world out there people, over and out - Danger Scout.

+ 3 reports

The other day I called the Provost of Phoenix University in Pomo, California, that robust town in our very own Central Valley, because I had heard some moderately unsettling news. Well, as you may have read, our beloved President had only recently learned that citizens have been in the habit of sueing Pharmceutical companies frivolously to the extent that some of our most revered medicine men had been forced to seek shelter from tax preparers. As a matter of fact only yesterday I learned that H&R Block had notified all its agencies to stop advising medicine makers to seek protection from high taxes by listing the names of their lawyers on their tax forms. Well, you can imagine the consternation this edict caused among the higher levels of the industry.

Now all this is something that came to mind when I read vthat Geo W is planning to exempt drug makers from lawsuits for the failure of their product to do as they claim or to do worse than they admit. You see, drug makers have long suffered because some greedy plaintiffs and their lawyers have been sueing because medicines like Provisal can cause more harm than good. Why they even have sued the makers of Nexium because while this medicine is purported to end the horrid destruction of the esophagus by stomach acids, it will at the very same time cause unmitigating distress of the abdomen and even sometimes can cause a marital rift. Knowing that these events can follow the ingestion of that wonderful Purple Pill (actually a capsule as any fool can see) I was really concerned. So, the call to Zachary Taylor Guerrero, the esteemed leader of the University of Phoenix, that renowned bastion of higher learning.

"Zach, old boy, I'm calling to ascertain the full ramifications of Geo W's recent declaration he is for once and all time going to put an end to the unmeritorious lawsuits against our illustrious and totally honest medicine manufacturers."

"Oh, yes, that. I was apprised of this by Geo W's Undersecretary for Free to Manufacture Anything Without Regard. The Department of FMAWR that regulates the manufacture of anything and everything a citizen might put into his mouth or otherwise ingest with the purpose of improving his lot in this tormented world."

"Oh, you are referring to that gentleman who was promoted from his post as EMT Secretary in the Department of Ambulance Services, Oscar Homolka?"

"Yes, the very same. I am now in the process of re-organizing our Department of Medicine in order to provide for a Doctorate in Medical Research, with a subdivision of Pharmaceutical Enterprises. You are aware, of course, that we have the backing of the Petroleum Industry in this effort."

"Oh, no. Oh my word, that is just great."

"Of course, this has not yet been made an object of public scrutiny as of this point in time."

"You do speak with such clarity and authority."

"How do you suppose I became Provost?"

"But of course. Now, how did Geo W become interested in this rather arcane industry, or should I say, modest and unassuming industry?"

"Why he had just seen an ad for Pfizer claiming that second only to their perfectly huge outlay for research was their cost to defend unwarranted lawsuits whenever one of their products caused some vaguely remote and totally unsuspected minor injury to the fetus of a lower class citizen whose sole source of income was Public Welfare."

"Oh, I say. You are so right. But the oil industry?"

"Are you aware the second only to the production of gasoline and to a minor extent, diesel fuel, is the chemical/pharmaceutical output of the petroleum industry? So, of course, our Vice President, Mr. Cheney who is so eager to allow the Petroleum Industry to serve the citizens of our country to the fullest possible without restriction or impediment, has urged Geo W to understake this holy and thoroughly christian approach to the Law."

"Oh I do understand."

"And well you should. So, as I said above somewhere, I am only now engaged in improving the education of our candidates for Doctorates, many of whom may soon be employed in our sacred FDA."

"Oh, you mean...?"

"Yes. How more affrontive can a lawyer be than to sue a manufacturer whose very own research has proven to the satisfaction of the Federal Food and DRUG Administration that its product is not only SAFE, but may in fact in some instances do what the advertisement in the Journal of the AMA claims? I mean, think about this for a moment, if you will or can, these medicine makers try so desperately to find a use for their products, and their advertising departments work endless hours in the service of our citizens all of whom suffer dreadful allergies and terrifying nauseousness, and constipation of all kinds through their lives, and for this they can be sued? For heaven's sake, man, just think of the tireless researchers at our very best Universities who spend hours filling out those ridiculously long forms for grants, and whose loyalty must be compensated, just think what would happen if for even the shortest period of time they lost their enthiusiasm for research at a high rate of pay, what then I ask?"

"Oh my goodness, Zach, what a horrendous outlook for the whole world at large if...?"

"You said it, sonny. Thank god for our FDA in pieces and war."

"I am so proud. How can I endow your publicly oriented for profit University even after death?"

"I'll send you the forms."

"I'd be forever in your debt, Doctor Zachary Taylor Guerrero, Provost."

Things you have to believe to be a Republican today:

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have ***.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is a impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but
George Bush's "military" record (Texas and Alabama Air National Guard) is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but
what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.
