First this from Information Clearing House (feed is on this page):
The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny." James Madison. Federalist 47.
Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your Honor. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse: Mark Twain.
"In the First Amendment, the Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have to fulfill its essential role in our democracy. The press was to serve the governed, not the governors. The Government's power to censor the press was abolished so that the press would remain forever free to censure the Government. The press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell." Justice Black. NYT v. US. 403 US 713

(Mark Twain is a favorite around here--I intend to post on him asap.)
And now there's this: Chuck Hagel says the Republican Party has lost its way. Does this show in any of their timely progressed charts?
So I just ha-a-a-ad to do it--I looked under the tent flap--or under the hood, as the case may be--of the Party's Minor Progressed chart for Aug 22--tomorrow, to see what's kay pahssa-ing these days.
In no particular order, here are some midpoint pics of note...I've left out a couple of rather positive ones--not because I'm suppressing the good news, but because if what Hagel says is true, I want to know about it. The fact that there's cooperation and "good teamwork" is a given, so here are the pertinent ones--Minor Prog'd being the mental/causal plane:
Moon-Uranus = Neptune: muddleheaded or confused motivation; nervousness about a sense of futility; things are unclear and insecure for no apparent reason; exhaustion; weakness; lack of energy; a sudden disappointment (why continue? There's more...);
Mercury-Saturn = Mars: risking everything to make a point (kinda like Bush did with this morning's press conference?); turning drive into tyranny; arguments; no compromise; incompatibility; tendency to treat others badly; separations caused by disputes; bringing about change through force;
Mars-Ascendant = Moon: anger and annoyance; provocative behavior; a quarrelsome woman (you go, girl! Uh-oh--you don't think that's Katherine Harris, do you?); emotional temperament easily shown to others (where's my dueling sword!?!);
Saturn-Ascendant = Jupiter: tendency to ignore or by-pass difficulties; indifference; being seen as 'above it all'; c'est la vie! OR one works very hard to establish a NEW ORDER that is reliable and predictable (my CAPS).
Also, their Neptune/NN midpoint is conjunct natal Sun: seeking to establish spiritual exchanges or else feeling misunderstood; the inability to to explain one's ideas to others or to come to an understanding; being tormented or let down by others.
Well, it's only a small flashlight, but the roaches are scattering just the same.
And the "Democrat" Party, as Bush made a point today of calling them again (so I guess it's really the Republic Party)...has its New Moon phase beginning---a new 28-year cycle of activity.
Not to imply that SO'W believes there's a lot of diff between politicians of either 'party' who are being run by corporations, crime syndicates, and globalists-behind-the-throne. Because there isn't.

ps: Here in GA...Wonder who the guests were tonight on PBS's Tavis Smiley Program--it was censored out by mysterious "technical difficulties"--and not for the first time either.
As usual: Ebertin's The Combination of Stellar Influences, and Noel Tyls' Solar Arc Directory..and I assume you know that the pics describe any, all, or any combination of the above!
