Vote GOP Nov 2 - if you wish to privatize SS

Update Oct 23, 2010:

GOP Plan Dramatically Reduces Social Security Benefits, Actuary Finds

By Sahil Kapur

A high-profile Republican budget plan would slash Social Security benefits in the long-run -- perhaps even by up to half of what they are now, the program's actuary concluded in a new study.

Original post begins here:

Seniors beware! The Republican Party's money-grabbing drive to privatize the Social Security system (thereby handing the funds we worked hard for to Wall Street bankers who need it the least) will be part of the GOP's upcoming political agenda if Rs are victorious in the November 2010 midterms.

You remember George Bush's big nation-straddling campaign while president to 'privatize' SS, right? It flopped thanks to large scale public opposition. How we vote on November 2 is our next opportunity to show our total opposition again.

Well, yesterday Bush mouthed off on the contentious subject as his biggest failure! Delusional, deceptive, or both - it's all the same NWO crap to me. He categorizes it as a 'failure' because his globalist bosses think so (he was 'tasked' to implement it!) yet the millions of deaths, maimings, and thwarted lives their illegal wars have caused apparently don't fit the criteria as 'biggest failure' of his miserable presidency!!

No, it's no delight for me to vote Democrat either (Dems certainly did their part to undermine meaningful financial reform since they take Wall Street money, too) but I do hope this issue helps millions of GOP-leaning voters to wake up and smell the thievery before they (and their younger family members which seniors will have to move in with if their SS benefits are squandered on Wall Street profiteers) find themselves victims of a Wall street scam/crash on an entirely new level never before seen.

Imho, America's biggest failure of a president: "war president" George W. Bush, son of another of our biggest duds.

Video Witch-Off: O'Donnell vs Elvira

Update Oct 21, 2010: On ABC, Christine O'Donnell said she regrets airing her not-a-witch ad which was meant to kill opponent's use of her past craft-dabblings against her. Instead, SNL lampooned it (amusingly, I might add - loved it!) but she seems to have made no mention of David Letterman's nightly spoofing ('the witch running in Delaware') or of Elvira's mimcry below...

Original post begins here:

Well, I didn't actually want to post the TV ad of witchery denial from Delaware candidate Christine O'Donnell (who may be you but she isn't me) yet here it is so you can compare her message with Elvira's macabre message below...

Since Halloween 2010 is sneaking up on us, this does make for sort of a holiday-themed post, doesn't it?

Covens alive! Even with its totally black background, O'Donnell's message shoots for sweetness and light yet I wonder if she's cognizant of the fact that some people are aware that pearls are a symbol of satanism. Wonder if they're real?

Campaign donors to Congress, Pluto opposite US n Sun

With November midterm 2010 upon us in short order, Mother Jones has published a helpful Campaign Cash Seating Chart showing who owns Congress, House and Senate.

An interesting example is Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), the toadie who apologized to BP (poor things!) after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. One of Barton's primary donors is Anadarko Petroleum, owner of 25% of BP's...wait for it...Deepwater Horizon well.

You know this is the sort of thing that belongs in SO'W's How can they think no one notices? file. The sad part is, before going to polling booths across the country on November 2, will anyone care which industries and corporations they're voting for?

Caution: if you vote (and I hope you will - though if everyone decides to stay home I can do that, too, to send a message - but it must be everyone) on November 2, you will be voting for skunks, crooks, vermin, varmints, shills, and bandits. If a decent person slips through and ends up on Capitol Hill, they will soon be disabused of the notion that anything fundamental can change about Washington DC politics because entrenched power politicians won't allow their cushy positions to be lost - and they play for keeps. Though some incumbents have already dropped out rather than face who-knows-what (blackmail for some distant sin?), there are plenty of them still skulking about the halls of power with string pullers making sure they stay in place in order to promote the globalists' bigger picture.

Yet transiting Pluto in Capricorn may have other ideas which disenfranchise America if she doesn't play globalist ball.

The next transition brought to us by secret manipulator Pluto, the planet of 'powerful forces' is lining up now and will first hit US natal Jupiter by opposition on January 17, 2011 (Sibly chart.) Pluto opposing natal Jupiter indicates a period when our economic status is not favored. We may not know who or what stands in our way (mysterious Pluto in Capricorn, sign of the olde countrie) yet whatever has truly been achieved cannot be's the wispy wealth that exists only on paper or in a cyberland cloud which may disappear with a touch of Pluto's magician's wand.

Pluto opposing natal Jupiter, planet of money and abundance, brings obstacles to progress as well and there's little to be done toward improvement. This is a know when to hold 'em transit of subdued aspirations, something our Jupiter-ruled nation has trouble accepting, and it relates not just to finances but to politics, higher education (Pres. Obama is already touting community colleges and I believe he's correct about their practicality for job hunters), religion, and other 9th house matters where Pluto intends to fight for control of our minds - America is the only nation to be founded upon 'an idea' after all.

Adding to the complexity, the plutonian processes of destructuring and transformation will be ongoing during our nation's Saturn Return which begins in short order: December 3, 2010, March 22, 2011, and August 28, 2011...2011 contains both these difficult transits involving Saturn and Pluto. The most positive thing I know to say about this cruel pair (Saturn and Pluto) is that they can signify an adept or a magician - and that's assuming either archetype has positive motivations.

So beware schemes of expansion in 2011. Whatever you have, perhaps you should be content to keep it. I will if you will.

Also of concern in the realm of politics is the upcoming opposition of Pluto to US natal Sun (the leader) - a few years off, yet part of Pluto's travails into Capricorn which will result in America's Pluto Return 27Cap33 before slow-moving Pluto enters Aquarius.

Pluto opposing US natal Sun is a five-fer which draws out the excruciating process:

1. March 14, 2014
2. May 17, 2014
3. January 5, 2015
4. August 17, 2015
5. November 1, 2015

Now as with all transits, there are several mitigating influences of positivity occurring simultaneously, yet Pluto is skulking in the background where he's hard to see much less anticipate or counter. He prefers an advantage however he can steal it.

Pluto opposite US natal Sun describes a major power play against the leadership of the US with a contest of wills in a no-compromise situation. Sinister manipulation is the order of the day (2014-2015 and beyond) and the possibilities for manifestation are endless. Yet we may be fairly certain that bruised egos will result and America's self-image as a world power will be seriously affected - unless we carry Pluto's water (which we already do as a global police force instituting the New World Order.)

Will a president attempt to stand up to this world domination agenda? No amount of ruthlessness on the part of our Sun will suffice for resources will be depleted and power in the world will be lessened. It's difficult to say just what may occur but abuse of power or its destruction are so often part of Pluto's motivation.

Interesting that America was billed in olden days by Sir Francis Bacon and others as The New Atlantis and as you know, the asteroid Atlantis is used in Mundane Astrology to represent, among other things, abuse of power and a feeling of doom. And nothing can change the fact that in 1776, Pluto was posited in Capricorn, a sign and archetype whose pan pipes even now seem to be wafting an orpheic tune upon the breeze as reap-what's-sown karma readies in the wings for a starring role on the world stage.

Libran New Moon over DC 10.7.10 (Oct-Nov 2010)

Today I'm looking at the horoscope of Thursday October 7, 2010's New Moon 14Lib24 which perfects over Washington DC at 2:44:25 pm edt (using Solar Fire software as always) and falls in the 9th house of that location.

Rising is one of the degrees of the Great Conjunction/s of the Illumination pair of energies, Uranus and Neptune: 19Cap44. At Midheaven, the Goal Point, is 12Sco49 with Venus 13:14 and Mars 15:33 in 10th house; it's an Hour of Venus so relationship and evaluation issues are indicated.

With Saturn 8Lib35 as chart-ruler and Mercury 7Lib25, both in 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Big Business, Transformation, and the Occult, their conjunction of Oct 8, 2010 7:40 pm edt at 8Lib40 bosses around October 7's New Moon along with the lunation's ruler, Venus. The New Moon's 8th cusp 2Vir40 is ruled by Mercury which only applies to its conj with Saturn.

The Mercury/Saturn combo relates to caution or frustration during planning sessions, directness or forthrightness in a leader's reasoning, treaties that contain difficult compromises, impasses, delayed or hindered negotiations, and computer programming methods. Saturn makes no other applying aspects in the chart.

However, the 1993 conj of Uranus and Neptune rises which makes it angular (having an energy outlet in the chart) and something of a determinator as well. We may expect issues from 1993 to be on the menu for the next two weeks, or for four weeks, if you count the Full Moon of October 22, 2010 (@ 29Ari33, a critical degree) as the fulfillment phase for the seeds planted during Oct 7's New Moon in Libra.

Uranus/Neptune = ASC: enhanced concentration toward goals; views of others which are gained through insight or intuition; instability; hypersensitivity; anxieties; impressionability. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Michael Munkasey gives the Uranus/Neptune pair as 'changes in social and political structures due to new ideals and dreams of the future' (a NWO-totalitarian future, as the power elites would have it! jc); 'sudden upsurges in the availability of illegal drugs' (the better to weaken us with? jc); 'groups formed to exploit oil or chemical resources; subversion using a new method of acquiring information' (PROMIS tracking software? jc)

There is another prominent midpoint picture formed by the New Moon of Oct 7: its conjunction to US natal Saturn 14Lib48 (which was conjoined on 9/11/01 by transiting Mercury - the calls for a serious investigation of 9/11 and the unexplained collapse of WTC7 are getting louder...)

Sun/Moon = n Saturn: renunciation; separation; increased restrictions over progress; addressing problems; a weakened system.

America is in process of her Saturn Return so 'all things Saturn' (including accountability) are in the news and on the evolutionary calendar; the 'fall from grace' flavor of having Saturn in 10th house (US natal Sibly chart) seems to be fulfilling itself before our very eyes.

By now, you're reminded of the Middle East peace process and its elusive yet promised creation of a Palestinian state according to the international concensus. And since New Moons mark the start of new cycles of activity, perhaps Justice Elena Kagan's beginning work this week with SCOTUS is indicated as well since US natal Saturn relates to the Scales of Justice (Libra) and the law (Saturn); the Moon may always signify a woman and the people in a mundane astrology chart.

Astrology is all about levels upon which energy expresses, isn't it? And since many levels of Life express simultaneously, Astrology describes the complexity of it all for the astro-sleuths among us.

Looking Ahead

Also of consideration is Venus' Rx station on October 8, 2010 which begins her 40 days of re-evaluation and diplomatic reviews; plus, upcoming soon is November 9's 'mass destiny' pair of Pluto/North Node hooking up at 3Cap36 and joined by the Moon at 3:13 pm est which may describe extreme measures being taken and/or magnified ambitions.

Plus, the November 2 midterm elections fit snugly within the busy celestial calendar of the next few weeks and I hope all Americans who can will get out and vote.

Bill Maher on Christine O'Donnell's win

By now you've heard that Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell won big in yesterday's Republican primary in Delaware with the eventual plum in the pie being VP Joe Biden's old Senate seat.

Click to watch Mr. Maher on CNN with Larry King last evening; text of the comedian's remarks are included. He says he knows O'Donnell personally and likes her (she's a nice person) but adds his usual maverick spin to the analysis!

Personally I like anyone or anything that ruffles Karl Rove's feathers or knots his jammies in a bunch and he predicted O'Donnell's loss. Oops! Seems the rules of the Republican game have changed, old horse. Perhaps it's time for ya to mosey to the barn.

"Are you ready for some midterms?" asks The Daily Show with its Indecision 2010 coverage continuing with America's most insightful political pundit, Jon Stewart.

Can the Democrats maintain their majorities in Congress in November? And can Jon explain Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's recent debate performance? Oh yeah.

Billion-dollar 'aid package' to Pakistan but no unemployment extension for US workers?

Any US taxpayers feeling hoodwinked yet?

Clinton Unveils New Aid Projects in Pakistan Visit but meanwhile on Capitol Hill, it's dandy fine if Americans do without jobs, mortgage payments, food, and the basic stuff of life.

Doesn't the government of Pakistan have any billions of its own with which to build "hospitals"? Perhaps they tucked back a few coins out of the veiled billions we've generously sent them through the years from our now-empty piggy banks?

Well, you know what they say...troubles are often self-created. And the nuclear monster that at first must have seemed like quite a genie was let out of the bottle by none other than the US government with the enabling of German scientists and others.

So as usual, the American people and their resources are being held hostage to the fallacy of 'national security' which works when either money or liberty are extorted in an elusive exchange for our imagined safety when really, the only things we can count on anymore from our own government are lies, obfuscations, fraud, extortion, and false flag ops waged against we-the-people, often mounted in order to emotionally manipulate us into fighting imperialist wars.

Once central banks allowed foreign investors into the American hen house, I suppose our trajectory was set (downward.) The outcome has now become clear to those who read the signpost at the crossroads.

But I can still feel steamed over it all, can't I? Sir Francis Bacon, Adam Weishaupt, and their Illuminati ilk can take a hike if they like. I wish they would. And leave decent people alone.

For as British PM Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881) penned in his novel Coningsby, the New Generation (and notice it's a 'new generation' similar to what the power elite tout openly now as a 'new international world order' - whether average Joes and Jills want it or not, here 'it' comes.)

"For you see, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes."

Astrologically, that's a perfect reference to 12th house activities ans secret deals behind the door as discerning planets in 12th house, especially the Sun, ought to know. 12th house involvements in Mundane Astrology = Politics.

And now for a few more grumpily typed words on the November 2010 midterm elections:

Republicans? Really? You want to reward the GOP for 8 years of Bush-Cheney policies that led to Financial Collapse 2008? Really? Whose team are you batting for? No, I don't care much for Dems either but the ruling class has us by the nape of our necks and I'm still growling over the Bush-Cheney crime spree brought upon our nation in coup-like fashion by a complicit SCOTUS.

If you'll remember, it took the attacks of 9/11/01 for the general population to stop questioning the legitimacy of the Bush-Cheney regime which so soon turned into a nightmare of loss, death, and war. Not an accident, that. Bullhorns for democracy! Export freedom with each bomb! Appeal to the emotions of the American people and they'll fight any way, any one, any time. It's been proven effective, say the marketers!

So November 2, 2010 will arrive before we can wink twice. Don't forget to vote. Even though we know that the old truism he who counts the vote decides the winner was never more obvious or applicable than it is in the New Millennium, yet we must not stay home on election day! On any election day.

This morning Cokie Roberts said on NPR that the GOP hope to turn the Gulf Oil Disaster into a political disaster for the Democrats. (Never mind the cynicism of that stance!) One assumes that the fact that President Obama has taken a lot of BP's cash will help the GOP with the ploy. Republican leader Mitch McConnell says it took the administration '70 days' to order skimmers sent to the Gulf as if that were all the White House was up to in the interim.

Well, whoever advised the President himself not to rush to the Gulf Coast asap after the April 20 catastrophe gave him bad advice in the public relations department. But that's smoke and mirrors, too, for with Mr. Obama's walk-on-water status now sunk, was he expected to ankle his way out to the Deepwater Horizon rig and patch things up with a bunch of presidential duct tape?

For Hurricane Katrina, Bush was in Texas eating birthday cake with John McCain, blithely unaware of, or uncaring about, the suffering occurring in the Gulf Coast region. It always seemed to me that these operatives of the GOP were celebrating more than McCain's birthday but maybe that was only me.

Yet be all that as it may...reward 8 years of Bush-Cheney policies with a majority in the November 2010 midterms?


Well, if the Republican Party does take more seats than Dem candidates or incumbents in November 2010 it will result in more of the blind-leading-the-blind sort of governing with the R Party being past their Secondary Progressed Full Moon (12Gem08) of February 18, 2005 but not by much - they're now in the Disseminating phase as of March 19, 2009 and puttin' out the White House jibes and as much misinformation as they can get away with and will help them claw their way up, as they think. But their party's Sec Full Moon is past culminating stage so party bigwigs won't be shining as they'd like even if a rout occurs this November yet they can still do much damage to this country from whatever foxhole they shoot from.

Like Bush-Cheney invading Iraq under a retrograde Jupiter (the General) - starting a war from weakness, not strength - we may expect the obstruct-Dems-at-all-costs party of the GOP (or BOP, if you prefer to add Big Oil to their name - I forgive you if you do) we may expect that a Republican majority in House (or in Senate) will govern from a weakened position if they win which, as we've seen, effectively stalls legislation proposed on behalf of all but the rich and mighty whose handmaidens serve behind-the-scenes masters on Capitol Hill and whose true identities are other than they appear.

Homeless Vets Bill? Republicans are against that, too (video)

Just when I thought there was nothing else supportive of the American people that the Republican Party could fight against, a Homeless Veterans Bill isn't passing muster with the GOP who'd rather spend the money we don't have (after 8 years of Bush-Cheney) on war rather than on the needs of those they sent to fight it for them.

It seems astounding to me that any American of any stripe or tea flavor could possibly consider voting for Republican Party candidates in November, when Rs were and are the primary promoters of endless war for which the dire needs of our homeless vets and the unemployed are to be sacrificed so that war hawks of both parties can continue to profit from US imperialism.

Guess America's natal Saturn in 10th house with the 'fall from grace if Saturn's lessons and principles of responsibility and accountability are not followed' Saturn-in-10th-house caution is having its results now with perfect timing: transit Saturn is about to cross US natal Midheaven again (00Lib53, Sibly chart) where the Task Master will return to his natal position in 10th house three times (while opposing Jupiter at natal Ic.)

Our nation's Saturn Return 14Libra48 this time is a three-fer which draws out the lessons and any solutions, if indeed they can be found without self-serving Politics taking over the presentation:

1. December 3, 2010
2. March 22, 2011 Rx
3. August 28, 2011.

So to paraphrase film star Betty Davis, Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
