Lying to Younger Generations About JFK Assassination

As expected, the TV airwaves are being inundated with programs commemorating the 50th anniversary of the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Also as expected, virtually all of them laugh the idea of a conspiracy right out of court.  With most Americans who were around in 1963 now safely dead, and with newer generations who don't remember it or never gave it much thought, the powers-that-be now feel free to whitewash the facts with a broad brush, making bald statements as if they were axiomatic - "The Warren Report is the ultimate authority pertaining to the assassination"..."The Warren Commission was not co-opted by the CIA"..."There's no evidence that Oswald ever worked for the CIA"..."Jack Ruby had nothing to do with the Chicago/Dallas Mafia"..."Ruby murdered Oswald because he felt sorry for Jackie Kennedy"... "There's no evidence that Oswald had ties to the Louisiana Mafia"..."New Orleans' District Attorney Jim Garrison accepted political bribes from the Louisiana Mafia"... "Witnesses who alleged seeing shooters behind the picket fence are mistaken."... "The autopsy photos were not faked"..."Only three shots were fired"..."The police audio of four rifle shots at Dealy Plaza  was actually recorded blocks away from there, two minutes after Kennedy was killed"..."The two policemen who swore in writing that they found a Mauser sniper rifle at the Texas School Book Depository were lying"..."Deaths of eyewitnesses were purely coincidental"..."The ballistic evidence proves that Oswald did it"..."The undamaged bullet found on an empty stretcher at Parkland Hospital is the same bullet that killed Kennedy and severely wounded John Connelly"..."Connelly was mistaken when he swore that he was hit by a different bullet"..."Kennedy's throat wound was caused by a shot from behind"..."Oswald was able to hit Kennedy and/or Connelly twice in three attempts in just 6.5 seconds, using his mail-order bolt-action Italian rifle"..."Oswald had an unobstructed view of Kennedy on Elm Street"

West, Texas Blast Equal to Low-Yield Atom Bomb?

As far as I can ascertain, using simple geometry, the West Fertilizer plant explosion was approximately equal in explosive force to a 1.2 kiloton nuclear blast.  The nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki completely leveled those cities to an extent of a 1-mile radius.  The authorities in West, Texas have consistently reported that everything within a 4-block radius of the fertilizer plant was completely leveled. Four city blocks are about 1/4 of a mile.

Using the formula to calculate the area of a circle (pi multiplied by the square of the radius), about 3.14 square miles of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were completely destroyed.  In the West blast, about 1/5 of a square mile was flattened, which is about 6 percent of the area wiped-out by the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan.

If the explosive yield of the Hiroshima bomb was equal to 20 kilotons of TNT, then the fertilizer plant explosion would be 6 percent of that figure, 1.2 kilotons of TNT.  Even if that figure is too high, it does give an indication of a huge amount of explosive material being stored inside the plant, perhaps more than the 270 tons of ammonium nitrate and 24,000 gallons of anhydrous ammonia reported by the company to the EPA in 2012.

Legislators Propose "Breathing Tax" on Bicyclists

Those ever-loony Washington State Legislators in Olympia are at it again.  In order to unearth new sources of tax revenue, Representative Ed Orcutt supports a state law to impose a $25-dollar tax on every new bicycle costing over $500 (need I mention that he is a Republican? I thought not).  This, of course, has caused a stir in biking community, as well as with the public at-large. In response to the claims that bicycles have little impact on streets and also take excess cars off the road, Mr Orcutt said that because carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, bicyclists are contributing to global warming and should be taxed accordingly!  I can't believe the complete drooling idiocy of politicians in this country these days, saying things that 10 years ago would have made them a national joke. Why not impose a $5 tax on every pair of new shoes while you're at it? Why should taxpayers have to fund millions for sidewalks for freeloaders who refuse to drive cars?  Of course, car owners wouldn't be adversely affected, as they do very little walking and rarely need new shoes. And the poor can always avoid the tax by buying used shoes at thrift stores!
