The Astrology of Ahmadinejad
... Remember that Moon Neptune conjunction, and the ascendant. Well I make the ascendant 12 degrees Gemini, and the MC as 22 degrees Aquarius. For Iranian readers, please note that 22 Aquarius will automatically connect to the 22 Bahman, which was when the Islamic Republic declared. Where does the Moon Neptune conjunction fall? It falls in the 9th house of theocracy. Absolutely brilliant. And they are close to the MC. So it fits the picture. Good. But more importantly, the Gemini ascendant shows two nations. And Iran has an Islamic state within an Iranian state. This is a matter of fact. The country is seriously divided now.

Astrologers will look at these charts to see where the forces of change are. In charts like these, we look at the 4th house and its ruler, to see how the opposition stands. The opposition does well, with the 4th house being under the sign of Leo, and the Sun is exhalted in the first house. It shows power of the opposition King.

Eating Choppers
Check out this Al Jazeera cartoon: CHOPPERS FOR FOOD PROGRAMME- 30/06/2005. This is how I interpret it: Afghanis were better off when they were producing heroin. Funny that, because a) I thought Islam was against drugs and b) I haven't seen any cartoonists feeling sorry for Colombian coca farmers. I also wonder, if people feel so bad about starving Afghanis having to cultivate opium for a living, why don't they help?

Not a brilliant move, Abu Mazen
This is just going from bad to worse: Abbas invites militant groups into government. I have no idea what kind of "unity government" he hopes to achieve, the only idea that unites these groups is killing as many Israelis as possible.

Frau Brunnhilda
Repressed memory, telepathy and other stuff that goes "bump" in the night

A few weeks ago we had a thread dealing with “repressed memory�?, which brought me back to unrepressed but forgotten memories of a whole rash of child abuse cases in California, Washington State, NJ some years ago. If I recall correctly, those cases involved day care providers implicated in child abuse and devil worshiping. The defendants were eventually vindicated, but not after having their lives thoroughly ruined. The consensus was that children were “led�? and encouraged by prosecutors and/or counselors into making up stories. Some people still believe that something did happen, children never lie, they may have vivid imaginations, but how can they come up with description of events they never experienced which seem to be consistent with other stories (such as satanic rituals). So were they actually “led�?, as in “provided with a script�?, or was there more to it? I think there was, and I will regale you with a couple of anecdotes from my own experience which got me thinking (bad idea, I know).

We moved to Wisconsin when Michael was a year-and-a-half old and not having any friends or family here, we never went out, and when we did, we shlepped him with--never trusted babysitters. One day, when Michael was about 3-years-old and misbehaving horribly, I announced that I’ve had enough, too much coddling doesn’t seem to get us anywhere, so I should follow advice of some friends and call on the services of the famed local babysitter (imaginary)–Frau Brunnhilda. Frau Brunnhilda was described as an old German lady who was very strict with her wards and her idea of entertainment was heavy-duty housecleaning. It seemed to work like a charm. The name was invoked only once, a few months later, with earth-shattering results: “No, no, no! No Brunnhilda!�?

Three years went by, by which time my mother moved into town. We were driving somewhere, with Michael in the back seat, when I mentioned to Pete how nice it is to have my mother around so we can go out for some adult entertainment sans Michael.

“Yeah,�? he piped in vehemently, “instead of leaving me with that horrible Brunnhilda�?.
“Yeah, like we ever did...�?
“YES, YOU DID!!!�?
“Oh, care to tell us about it?�?

Staying the course
The war posts are in ev's category and I don't really like boy posts - I don't even like Home Depot - but I couldn't resist saying this: I'm glad we're not setting a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq, we should stay there for as long as it takes. The terrorists in Iraq are fighting some imaginary Jihad. They take great pleasure in indiscriminately killing and terrorising the "occupiers" who just happen to be Iraqi men, women and children. As long as they're not going away, neither should we.
After all, just what is the Democratic alternative to the current approach in Iraq? Plenty of Democrats, and a few jittery Republicans, have taken to nattering on about how the administration should set a "timetable" for withdrawal from Iraq.

Bush dispatched with this silly argument pretty effectively, saying: "Setting an artificial timetable would send the wrong message to the Iraqis, who need to know that America will not leave before the job is done. It would send the wrong signal to our troops, who need to know that we are serious about completing the mission they are risking their lives to achieve. And it would send the wrong message to the enemy, who would know that all they have to do is to wait us out."

Ahmadinejad's Cultural Advisor Fired
Just a week after the elections and Ahmadinejad fired his cultural advisor.

According to excerpts from an Iranian newspaper, Mr. Mehdi Kolhar, President's chief cultural advisor was fired because of his interview with an Iranian satellite TV channel in which he claimed that Ahmadinejad is working on laws permitting female singers, legalizing satellite receivers and easing the laws on youths' clothing.

Almost immediately after the interview, he iterated that these were his personal views and had nothing to do with Ahmadinejad's policies. But the price was already high. Ahmadinejad's fundamentalist friends couldn't stand this and he was fired first thing in the morning.
