The real face of Coca-Cola

Even though I hail from the Atlanta area and went to art school there back in the day, I think this article revealing the real face of the Coca-Cola Company needs to be spread around!

Apparently things go better when you snag lots of public money for your corporate projects but that’s only part of Coke’s story.

And don’t forget: it’s the real thing.

Update on Swiss banks closing US accounts

Here’s an update from Bloomberg News on the hot button issue of the closing of foreign bank accounts held by Americans who have been able to avoid paying their US taxes – but is the jig really up?

Yet non-tax-evaders living and working abroad are in danger of having no place to bank at all if the IRS continues its long-overdue crackdown on such fraudulent practices which have been enabled by the Swiss banking system.

So perhaps Americans working in foreign lands will have to consider online banking as a solution to their ‘Americans are pariahs’ dilemma!

Not for me, thanks: but my own bank here can’t shut up about the joys and conveniences of online banking. In their dreams…do I look that gullible?

It will be interesting to see if the IRS sticks with its Sept 23 deadline for foreign accounts declarations, won’t it?

Remembering Alexander Litvinenko

In 2007, not long after I posted quite a few entries concerning the November 2006 poisoning of Russian spy and defector Alexander Litvinenko, my articles became invisible to the general public on my Political Astrology blog even though the posts were set for Public Viewing.

Later on, when I realized the extent of the mysteriously invisible posts which were still not displaying, I published a shout-out with a Links List to the missing articles and I hereby do so again in memory of a man who, though imperfect, didn’t deserve such a miserable end by an assassin’s hand – or by a president’s order.

Note: some of the posts do include my astrological comments and anaylisis but not to fret – they’re written in English.

Wilco (The Album): have a listen!

NPR has been upgrading its grooviness quotient lately by presenting such features as First Listen: Wilco (The Album) and this long-time Wilco fan heartily approves!

Astrology notes on Governor Sanford

Here’s an excellently informative post with Astrology details on Gov. Mark Sanford if you’d like a wider view of the fellow who was a big Impeachment Freak against President Clinton for much the same sort of shenanigans he’s indulged in himself, as it awkwardly turns out.

~:~

Update July 3, 2009:

i have received a message asking if i’ll be posting on Sanford’s chart myself and the short answer is: not if i can help it.

Others subjects are higher on my posting agenda but that’s only part of the reason, the other being that whenever Washington politicians make a big deal out of a sex scandal – as with Clinton – i always ask myself what they’re diverting attention from in another direction for there must be Something important we Should Be Paying Attention To that they may be actively veiling from our gazes. (Timing is often a clue.)

So j’refuse to rubberneck their hypocrisies in the ‘hot romance’ department – how very very boring. jc

FEMA videographer on 9/11 speaks out

FEMA’s videographer at Ground Zero on Sept 11, 2001 and for a month afterwards, Kurt Sonnenfeld, has written a book and is living in exile since 2003 with his wife and family.

Questions linger about the attacks of 9/11 and it’s important to consider that the 911 Commission was a white-wash of events and of the culprits’ true identities and motives.

Mr. Sonnenfeld was one of very few people allowed into the rubble of buildings in 2001 and has his video tapes showing certain anomalies with him. Yes, his home, his computer, and other files were ransacked and confiscated by US authorities years ago, but he asserts that he has the tapes and is ready to share them with experts.

The Astrology of 9/11/01’s attacks has long informed me of the dubious nature of the official story, and they very possibly qualify as a ‘false flag op’ – so I have linked here previously to VP Cheney’s progressed chart set for the morning of the attacks which primarily concerns Cheney’s Pluto/Chiron midpoint at Midheaven, the Goal Point of any chart.

So on behalf of my much-loved and native America I must echo one of the statements of 9/11’s video eye-witness Sonnenfeld in his above-linked interview, “Things are not what they seem.”
