government's cousins and fools

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out...without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.

--H.L. Mencken 1880-1956 American journalist, satarist, social critic

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

--Bertrand Russell 1872-1970 British philosopher, historian

More cousinship revelations of the mind bending kind:

WaPo is revealing Mike Huckabee as a 9th cousin of George Bush bwo Connecticut grandfathers. So did Bush win Iowa? (see post just below--seems the void-of-course Moon took Hillary to the 'nowhere' of 3rd place!)

And we heard months ago that Barack Obama and Dick Cheney are distantly related. Did Cheney, on some weird level, win Iowa?

Can this, on a mysterious and hidden astrological level, be why last evening's caucus chart had Bush and the Rs all over it? Shall I wig out now or wait for later?

Hold on, Aint Bea, there's more:

Huckabee is also reported to be a 10th cousin once removed of Mitt Romney. Now that's even weirder...a Baptist and a Mormon go into an diner in Iowa, they both order Kool-Aid straight America buyin'?

Iowa's void-of-course Moon and George Bush

UPDATE 8:57 pm EST: ABC News projecting Huckabee for the Rs, and "preliminary" results for Ds: Obama, Clinton, and Edwards, in that order. Seems kind of early to me, but we'll see if their projections hold out.

Original post here:

You know it's after 8:30 pm, Iowans must be in the throes by now, and the void-of-course Moon at 7:00 pm CST (when the throes began) has me stumped.

I mean, we know that chart-ruler Sun (*13Cap02) is *opposite US natal Sun (and Bush's natal Sun, of course) and it's clear that with 8Leo49 rising at 7:00 pm CST the natal Mercuries of the Republican Party, George Bush (and Gonzo--remember our ill-starred AG?) are rising as well--and not so far from Bush's n ASC "8Leo" ("A bolshevik propagandist") and all that, but how well can things go with a void-of-course Moon which leads to nowhere?

'Sup, Iowa? Can this be a negative for the only woman (Moon) in the bunch?

Will the final results from tonight be a long time comin'? And who's watching Karl Rove and Dick Cheney skulking in the shadows?

Now the 'caucus' Sun does apply to an opportunistic sextile with techno-savvy Uranus in 8th house...and Uranus, the reformer, certainly reminds me of the Bushies. But why is Dubya smeared all over this chart? What is the power cyclist up to?

If we consider Bush's natal conjunction in 1st house of Mercury and Pluto (10Leo35) blended with tonight's 7:00 pm Ascendant, a midpoint picture emerges...

Pluto/ASC = Mercury: exercising influence; lording it over others; intellectual domination.

He does so love being a consequential leader and with a 12th house Sun in Cancer, he's something of a meddling busybody from behind-the-scenes...comes by it naturally...yet he's a master at scuttling out of the way when the buck begins to stop...have you noticed Mr. Crabby doing just that?

Looks to me like a very busy, competitive night for old street-fightin' George and his minions.

*Sun transiting opposite Sun is when one's direction for the year should be reassessed and adjustments made if things aren't on track. If you're not sure of that date for your own chart, count exactly 6 months from your date of birth, give or take a day.

**Sun conjunct asteroid, Siva, the destroyer or creator.

Michael Moore on the top Dem candidates

Well, I'm pretty sure the message on Edwards, Obama, and Clinton from Michael Moore is not what has Mike Huckabee on his knees before the Iowa caucus, but how we can be sure?

What's Hucka Boom been asking his Maker anyway? Please let me troll the halls of earthly power while ruling the world, oh Lord?

What is wrong with this (Christian) picture? Didn't our forebears supposedly leave Europe to avoid such things as the double whammy of church + state?

Today I'm looking at the chart for sunrise in Des Moines Thursday: with Pluto still at 29Sag+ and conjunct Nemesis (the unbeatable opponent--also at 29 degr) near Jupiter 3Cap36 and all three in behind-the-scenes 12th house (sunrise 7:46:35 am CST) it seems certain that big doins' are afoot--or ahoof, as I like to think of those darned plutocrats.

Jupiter = the Rs, as you know; Saturn = the Ds.

Saturn 8Vir22 Rx is in 8th house as is the Moon's South Node, a Saturnian point which may indicate a Dem from the past--which could be Hillary-of-the-90s, or John Edwards from his previous prez bid. And their being in 8th house of high finance points to Clinton or to Edwards as well--her for suckling so greedily from the corporate t*t, he for vowing to fight against corporatism with FDR's inherited big stick.

Sunrise in Des Moines, Jan 3, 2008 brings "13Cap" rising, "A fire worshiper" which has an interesting keyword: MAGIC...

pos: extraordinary skill in enlisting every resource of the world for the exaltation of self and the consummation of its ambitions;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: consistent overestimation of personal capacity.

At MC (Aspirations; Goals) is 7Sco58--with Sigma, keywords: good judgment; moral sanity leading to moderation; self-control; temperance; restraint.

In 10th house of Career is the Moon 17Sco53 (the people; the public) indicating publicity but also fluctuations, and I think that Sigma's keywords and concepts more likely describe the people themselves than this gaggle of say-anything politicians. Unless it's...John Edwards' and his exalt-the-people populist stance.

Yet all that Scorpionic energy at top of the chart connects closely with Hillary Clinton's natal chart...and Moon = a woman. Hmm.

Perhaps John Edwards is sincere about loosening the corporate noose about our government's and our own necks. And if he gets to the White House and tries, he'll have little time for anything else--and may find himself in mortal danger as well.

Both Lincoln and Kennedy were taken out and both had spoken as president about reforming the world banking system, y'know. Now it's 2008 and the world banking system is teeteringly unstable, if you believe their PR. But we know that massive amounts of money are in process of being shifted in a final coup, it is to be feared.

Those Campaign Politics, she said:

Of course, if you've ever read my ravings much you know that I see the whole political rigamarole as theater, dahling--part of the selection process but the actual selection isn't up to the voters in this our one-party system. Campaigns are designed to sustain the illusion of democracy and keep the masses busy and at bay.

Plus, most Americans might agree that campaign rhetoric most often turns out to be hogwashery once the power is attained and the puppeteers make things crytal clear to the new "boss" in the Oval Office--yet, in a semi-fit of dwindling hope, I must agree with the conclusions of Michael Moore in his letter linked above.

So if you haven't read it, I hope you will take a moment to do so.

And now the ruthless, loyal-to-the-cause Sun Cap-Moon Sco Images for Integration for Jan 3, 2008:

A general leads his troops to victory...A film director plans each shot to maximize its emotional impact (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Sounds like victory for Jupiter-the-General-or-Preacher...the one who's used TV ads most effectively! I watched in amazement last Sunday as Huckabee denied that his tv ad was meant to suggest the Christian CROSS behind him as the camera panned to bring the "bookshelf" more into focus...who does he think he's zoomin'?

"Onward Christian soldiers" indeed. One warmonger was put into the White House in 2000 and evangelicals rejoiced. My heartfelt prayer is that we forego making the same mistake again. Let's make a different one this time.
