And So I was…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I was watching a documentary on RT news about Edward Snowden’s exit from Hong Kong when a Mr. Hayden (FORMER NSA Dir) stated that Mr Snowden broke his oath and that about 100, 000 people in the intelligence community would be upset if a plea bargain or such would be offered to Mr. Snowden then stating further that you don’t want to do that with people who are responsible for the safety of the US….

And I thought wait a minute is that a veiled threat? Wait a minute you are not in charge of the whole of the US Government and anyway the oath that is taken is to the constitution not to any one person or organization so I beg to differ as a citizen of the USA it is up to the prez and his advisors and the public, not any one organization as to whether Mr. Snowden gets a pardon or the like, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!! Democracy rules.

Anyway it was a great documentary.

( sometimes I wonder, I wonder what planet people live on.)

Are Sonic Booms Decimating The Ocean’s Wildlife Populations?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Are miliary sonic booms killing sea life in the ocean ? Recent beaching of deep water sea life calls into question these pracctices.

===================================

They use sound to navigate and to find other creatures in the deep ocean waters … vessels and the U.S. Military. According to Paul Ferris, campaign director for Sum Of Us, these companies have been “ceaselessly firing sonic booms to map the seafloor.

Examiner · 3/2/2015
===================================
This is what a sonic boom does on land-
====================================
OCEAN CITY — A loud boom on Monday, followed by windows rattling and homes and businesses shaking, was due to a sonic boom related to military jets in a testing track off the coast. Many residents and visitors reported the incident shortly after noon …

The Dispatch · 4/17/2014
===============================
One can only imagine what it is like for sound dependent underwater animals to be bombarded with these explosions.  It is time to stop using this technique.
Our oceans and the creatures that live there are more vital to our existence than mapping the sea floor.
I am sure if we can put a man on the moon we can figure out a non-intrusive way to map the ocean floor.

So I Sat…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I sat in my garden with today’s NY times as I had done just before the Iraq war started but this time the headlines read  —

SENATE PANEL FAULTS CIA OVER BRUTALITY AND DECEIT IN TERRORISM INTERROGATIONS –
REPORT REJECTS CLAIM ON HUNT FOR BIN LADEN –
FAILURE OF OVERSIGHT IS OUTLINED, AGENCY DEFENDS PROGRAM –
PORTRAYING A BROKEN -AGENCY DEVOTED TO A FAILED POLICY –
AT BIRTHPLACE OF FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT, A PROTEST TORCH IS PASSED

Finally finally…..  I smiled as I looked into the sky I heard –

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing, land where my father died….. from every mountainside let freedom ring.

We are watching the system of US democracy in action – checks and balances….

Thank you, Senator Diane Feinstein.

Who sold it to the Israelis?

and isn’t using gas against civilans not allowed by international law?

The United Nations should look into this matter as soon as possible.

Anadolu quoted Dr. Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesperson for the Health Ministry in Gaza, as saying that: “Dozens of Palestinians, including children, arrived at hospitals suffering from suffocation after inhaling a white poisonous gas fired by the Israeli army in the northern Gaza Strip and in the Shawkah neighbourhood near Rafah, to the south.”

Al-Qidra urged the Palestinians in Gaza “not to panic when they inhale the strange gas, to protect themselves using tarpaulin coats or nylon clothes and to cover the doors, windows and vents with a moist cloth to prevent air from leaking inside.”
