Is anybody listening?
Does anybody believe?
Everyone who knows me knows I'm a bit off kilter.
Some of you (who believe yourselves falsely ON kilter, think I'm just silly. Worse yet, nuts.
Everybody who knows me knows that I have a few theories that are not exactly mainstream.
Everybody who knows me knows that not too many others were predicting (shouting, crying, warning) that the economy was going to go kablooey, and that was over 2 years ago.
I've also been saying other stuff.
Stuff like stuff nobody else is willing to say, at least publicly.
Someone asked me what I thought about this swine flu thingy thats all the news these days.
I said along time ago that this one worried me.
Didn't matter though, its just ted being ted.
When the H1N1 went "dormant" like all pandemics do, and when the W.H.O. ratcheted up their warnings to the highest level there is, I KNEW there was something indeed wicked this way coming.
The usual reasonable folks made statements like "more people die from common colds in the course of a year in America than died of H1N1 last year"
THAT sounds reasonable enough, I'm sure they all thought.
But they, like most good outcome wanting, reasonable thinkers, were wronger than wrong.
Something wicked this way comes.
Now it seems that even reasonable folks are waking up to this thing.
But I'm not so sure that the real threat is from the pandemic itself.
I believe, and this is based upon my own speculation, that this pandemic while quite dangerous, is going to be used as a catalyst to usher in "something else", like a treatment. A response to the pandemic, I fear, is going to be worse than the pandemic itself.
I have a seperate but not completely unrelated story that was related to me over a year ago.
A federal prison guard told me that a meeting was held in his prison, and in that meeting, officials from the CDC told the employees that vacinations were going to be given to all prison employees, and their immediate families.
This was not optional, they were told.
Also, Prison employees were probably noticing that refrigerated trailers (tractor trailers) were being parked on prison property, and they were a preperation for the anticipated "virus" that the federal government expected to hit "sometime next fall", and that the casualty rate was predicted around 1,000 to 1,500 persons, a day, locally .
I was as intruiged as he was by that statement.
My question tonight, besides wondering if anybody is out there at all, is whether or not anyone else senses something wicked this way coming?
A lot of people who are not necessarily readers here, have told me exactly that.
People who dont spend all damn day introspecting or analyzing every damn feeling that comes their way.
People who can be honestly and accurately classified as "regular folk" have told me that they KNOW, that something is about to happen.
But nobody knows what.
Well, almost nobody.
I read about the coming (past) economic downturn a year and a half ahead of people like Jim Cramer, who is considered a stock market expert, with his own tv show.
He didnt say a word about it.
I read about a coming threat that is combined with the past economic downturn.
60 minutes isn't doing any stories about this one, either.
You do whatever you want.
Dont listen to me.
Play farmville or vampire hunter or whateverthehell you want to, I dont care.
I've written stuff like this before, and the usual suspects will say its just ted being vaguely ted again, but...................
No, no buts.
I dont care.
Everything I can see, is seeable for everyone to see, but most reasonable folks want to see the nice in everything.
The hopeful stuff.
No reasonable folks want to consider the really "out there" stuff.
The unthinkable stuff.
Tonight, 60 minutes is doing a story on a technology that is providing very hopeful leads in cancer treatment.
It involves nanotechnology and radio waves.
Whats important there, is the nanotechnology and the radio waves.
It is being reported tonight on 60 minutes, as I type, as a cancer breakthrough, but 3 or 5 years ago when I first read about the technology, it was being reported as quite the opposite.
It was being reported as a way to INFECT people, not cure them.
Watching the 60 minutes story, 5 years after first reading about the other stuff, I can see why people are so hopeful.
The technology works.
What I can't understand, is why reasonable thinking individuals are so quick to dismiss the possibility that someone with this technology would use it for ill gains.
So trusting, reasonable thinking folks are.
I read about a technology that COULD be used to infect populations of nations, 5 years ago, and I was considered nuts for believing it.
The only difference in the stories is the delivery systems of both the nanotech particles, and the radio waves activating them.
Both are not only doable, but being done.
I didnt think so.
Don't worry. Be happy.
Do whatever you're told to do.
Continue to laugh and point at the silly folls like myself who will go kicking and screaming saying "no, not in MY country..."
Something wicked this way comes.
By the way, do you know what that picture is?
I didn't think so.
Have a nice day.
