Random Duck stuff

bono1. A new U2 documentary will air on Showtime at the end of October. They are also going away for a long time. Jared, do you have Showtime?
2. Karma is a bitch. Boy Throwing Rocks At Cars gets a crossbow arrow to the abdomen. That’ll learn ya!
3. What? Romney and Bachmann both slipping in the polls? This can’t be right. Oh yeah, I forgot that Perry was vetted by the GOP years ago.
4. Bummer to learn about former Wild player Pavol Demitra (and others) dying in that Russian plane crash Wednesday.
5. Not the best segway here, but virtual boarding agents might be coming to an airport near you. The lifelike 2-D holograms make eye contact, blink and smile while emitting automated phrases, such as “bonjour” and “bon voyage.” Does anyone else think this is spooky?

6. A new online video game is out called, Tea Party Zombies Must Die. Players can take aim at characters as the “Sarah Palin Zombie” and the “Michele Bachmann Zombie” and kill them. I wonder how Gabby” Giffords would feel about this?

7. KARK 4 News meteorologist Brett Cummins is in some hot water after being found in hot tub with naked dead man wearing a dog collar. (Read more)
8. Buttrock definition – If you have heard this term and don’t understand what it means, then let me enlighten you. Buttrock is a subpar genre of music where every song sounds exactly the same. It is usually produced by a band trademarked with cheap, unoriginal song lyrics, and a music that sounds manufactured and predictable. Current music that falls into this category includes Nickleback, Hinder, and Daughtry. It’s not a new term though. 15 years ago, my friends and I considered bands like Winger, Firehouse, and Warrant to be buttrock.

John Stewart bashes the media over Ron Paul

John Stewart takes on the corporate media machine over their blatant exclusion of Ron Paul from news reports. Of course, this is nothing new. Ron Paul and his ideas for helping this country have been largely ignored by the left and right for years. They treat him like a crazy uncle and dismiss his ideas until the public steps up enough times to echo him. Then, and only then, do candidates jump on the bandwagon (like auditing the Fed) and claim the idea as their own.

The bottom line is this. You have no real say in who “wins” a GOP/DFL nomination for President. Ron Paul’s only chance now is to run as an Independent. What you can do as a voter is write in Ron Paul (or your favorite choice) on the ballot and hope that it sends a message that you know the Presidential elections are skillfully orchestrated. Or, you could decide not to participate in the vote at all, which is also within your right. This might send an even stronger message.

Rick Perry announcing GOP candidacy not a surprise to conspiracy theorists

Rick Perry is announcing his GOP candidacy for President this Saturday. If you know of the Bilderberg Group and its last conference in Switzerland, this should come as no surprise. According to those trying to keep a close eye on the secret Bilderberger meetings and this Austin News 8 report below, Perry was invited to attend the 2007 conference in Istanbul. Many believe it was at this conference that Perry was presumably vetted for the higher office of presidency in 2012.

Many believe the Bilderberger Group puts its influence behind a presidential candidate from each party who will help the group move its agendas forward. American voters are given the illusion of choice, but in reality, the real decision on who becomes President is made for them. They believe that Bilderberg likes to own both horses in a two horse race for the White House. This is how the powerful elite in the world will always get their way. Whether or not any of this is true, it does appear odd that many other U.S. Presidents have attended Bilderberger conferences prior to being elected. As governor, Clinton attended his first Bilderberg meeting in 1991 and was elected president about a year later. President George W. Bush’s trip to Italy coincided neatly with the 2004 conference in Stresa, Italy. Obama attended the 2008 Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Va., just before winning the 2008 Democratic nomination.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is one of few on the inside who have openly answered questions regarding the Bilderberg Group and their influence in world politics. Read that here.

Another interesting caveat here is that Newt Gingrich thought to be a member of the Bilderberger Group and the Trilateral Commission. Newt allegedly said he never had participated and never would participate in Bilderberg or Trilateral Commission meetings. One might wonder why his candidacy for President has fallen flat and his entire campaign staff has quit on him. What’s really going on here?

Time will tell if the conspiracy theorists are correct on this one. If Perry wins the Republican nomination for 2012, we may want look a little more closely at who is really pulling the strings. If he doesn’t, then maybe the conspiracy folks are wrong on this issue altogether. Let’s wait and see.
