Yesterday, I saw the lines in the sky again. I'd always heard about them, but had never actually seen them myself, until this Spring. I had seen the Facebook Meme's, of course, about mind control and the dumbing down the populace. I never put much stock in any such wild theories. First, this is Ohio, why the overkill? Secondly, this is the United States where Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the presumptive party nominees for the Presidency of the United States.
A nation in perpetual war mode, that doesn't know where and doesn't know why, wars are fought in its name. Spun in a web of good guys and bad guys, whatever fails in fantasy is righted in repetition. Hillary Clinton, rubbed her hands together gleefully at the murder of Muammar Gaddafi saying, "We came, we saw, and he died." Gaddafi had resolved his differences with the West and had been on the straight and narrow. The Secretary of State of the United States of America, not only takes credit for his murder, she gushes over it.
The Congress investigates Benghazi and lost E-mails with the fervor of a mechanical bull cowboy. Ignoring, The Secretary of State for the United States of America and presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party for the office of the President, takes joy in the murder of another world leader. Generally speaking, murder is frowned upon in the civilized world. Religious texts stand united in their opposition; legal covenants follow suit. Actually, murder is a crime, being joyful at murder is only gauche. Imagine, you're talking to your neighbor over the back fence and ask, what's new?
"Oh, the guy down the street really pissed me off. So we dragged him out into the street and beat him to death. You should have been there"it was great!"
The Party of small government wants to build the largest public works project, since the Interstate highway system"with no upside. A public works stunt, like wrestling Mexican's caricatures on stage. Appealing to the darkest corners of the American soul. Immigrants, minorities, guns, abortion, crime and violence and the Republican nominee's platform is"nothing. Nothing except, stage wrestling Mexicans, talking loudly, without a stick to back it up. It begs the question, what does the Presidency even mean anymore?
Both candidates will continue the wars, both will continue devastating trade deals. Both will continue the love affair with big oil and both will subvert environmental protections. Both will work to keep down wages and both will campaign against the poor. Bernie Sanders? He was the bait to draw you into the trap, the public option gambit. Public option, no public option, public option"no public option. Bernie, Hillary, Bernie, Hillary, No Bernie, Just Hillary as clear as the white lines painted across the sky. The media claim victory before the votes are even cast. I've seen Trump tee shirts and bumper stickers and Bernie bumper stickers too. So far, at least, the pro murder party don't go in for such swag in this zip code.
I'm thirty miles East of Cleveland, Ohio in rural Geauga County. Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport is on the other side of Cleveland. It is a rare sight in Geauga County to see an aircraft of any kind. Seeing multiple white lines across the sky is bizarre. My father was a Navy pilot and a private pilot. I grew up around air shows and aviation. A vapor trail behind an aircraft is primarily made up of frozen water vapor and exhaust gasses. If you follow a vapor trail with your eyes, you'll find the aircraft on one end of the trail. The vapor trail, will remain the same length across the sky as the aircraft flies. When they aircraft disappears, the vapor trail will rapidly dissipate.
I don't know what these white lines across the sky are. I make no claims to know, only I know what they aren't, they aren't vapor trails. These trails or if you like, "clouds" are there. Something or somebody is spending a vast fortune to produce them. One thing I know for sure, jets are expensive. The average cost of operating a Boeing 737 is around $5,000 per hour. Now, let's conjecture the cost of the chemicals, needed to create the "clouds" is a dollar per pound. A fully loaded aircraft with $20, 000 in chemicals flies for an hour or $25,000 per hour. The $64.00 question is why?
What is to be gained? Who gains by this and why the secret? Now remember, this is a do nothing government, nothing beneficial is done for the people. Food stamp cuts, assaults on Social Security, failing infrastructure and education. Yet someone, somewhere, has created a covert program of spraying chemicals into the sky, for reason or reasons unknown to a reality show public. Clearly, this cannot be of a casual interest. The need for secrecy means the reasons for the program must be dire. An overt lie could easily dispel the mystery, yet there is only silence.
Why sure, we could say it's an attempt to fix the ozone layer led by the United Nations. Republicans could decry the actions of the UN on US soil. Democrats could sing "Kumbayah" with environmentalists. Hillary could be against it, before she was for it. Trump could promise if elected, to end the program. CNN could host mindless debates; Fox could tell outrageous fabrications, becoming the foundation for Facebook meme's, until we forget. Someone is covertly spending millions, upon millions of dollars to spray chemicals into the atmosphere, without the consent of the governed.
Record temperatures across the US Southeast and Southwest. In Asia, all-time, record high temperatures in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, India, China as well as portions of Africa. Super Typhoon Nepartak hits Tiawan and China while the Pacific hurricane season is the quietest since records have been kept. Something funny is going on here, it's the elephant in the room. The weather is different from what it once was, when I was young. We can argue for it with facts and figures or we can argue against with just the same ammunition, but only one thing really matters. Person or person's unknown are spending a fortune to spray chemicals into the atmosphere, for reasons unknown.
