Officer Threatens To Arrest Woman For Anti-Bush Sticker

POSTED: 1:42 pm EST January 25, 2005

DENVER -- Some people are angry when they see Shasta Bates' derogatory bumper sticker about President George W. Bush -- but she didn't think she'd be threatened with arrest because of it.

The Denver Police Department is investigating a sergeant who allegedly threatened to arrest the 26-year-old for displaying the bumper sticker.

Bates said she was told by the sergeant Tuesday that her bumper sticker was illegal because it was profane. She said he told her he'd arrest her if she didn't remove it.

But City Attorney Cole Finegan said he doesn't believe there's any city ordinance against displaying a profane bumper sticker.

Colorado ACLU Legal Director Mark Silverstein said the alleged threat of arrest clearly violates First Amendment protection.

Hidden passages

Bush’s Inaugural Address contained many explicit references to God, but there were even more hidden allusions to the Bible that may have been lost to many in his audience, as they were to me, before I did some research.


Here are a few of the hidden passages.

When Bush thanked the American people for granting him patience in “good measure,” he was echoing Luke 6:38, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure. . . .”

When Bush talked of the “ideals of justice and conduct that are the same yesterday, today, and forever,” he was echoing Hebrews 13:8, which says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

When Bush talked about the “untamed fire of freedom” in a passage that included the phrase “hope kindles hope,” he was echoing passages from Jeremiah. For instance, Jeremiah 17:27 says: “I will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem.” And Jeremiah 50:32 says: “I will kindle a fire in her towns that will consume all who are around her.”

There are many other passages in the Bible that have a raging fire in them. For instance, Isaiah 33:14: “The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: ‘Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?’ ”

When Bush talked about the day when “the captives are set free,” he was echoing Ephesians 4:7-9, which says: “He led the captives free.”

When Bush talked about the day “the unjust encounter justice,” he was echoing Job 27, which states, “May my enemies be like the wicked, my adversaries like the unjust.” (This section of Job says that the unjust and the wicked and the ruthless will meet a grisly fate: “However many his children, their fate is the sword; his offspring will never have enough to eat.”)

When Bush talked about the need to “surround the lost with love,” he was echoing the parable of the lost sheep in Luke 15.

When Bush said, “History also has a visible direction, set by liberty and the Author of Liberty,” he was being none too subtle. But he was also alluding to Acts 3:15 (“You killed the author of life”) and Hebrews 12:2 (“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith”).

Toward the end, when Bush said, “Freedom is the permanent hope of mankind, the hunger in dark places, the longing of the soul,” he was echoing Psalm 107: “For He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness. . . .”



Our First Amendment says that there shall be “no establishment of religion.” In his speech, Bush was clearly establishing religion. He was denying a place in the United States for those without faith. And while he waved at those of other faiths, his repeated allusions were mostly to the Christian Bible.

If you follow his metaphors and allusions to their logical ends, you realize that Bush was cloaking our secular values of freedom and liberty and justice in distinctly Christian garb.

Secret Elections

I don't understand how you can have an election, and not tell people who is running. This is ludacris. To make an informed descision about who to vote for, you must research all the canidates so you can make a descision based on their past. This is not democracy, or anything even resembling democracy. This is so absurd and rediculious to shove this down the iraqi's throats calling it democracy, that it make me sick.

What would happen if this were tried here in the USA? There would be a revolution, we would not tolerate it at all. Which is exactly what is happening in IRAQ, they see the load of crap we are dumping on them, and want to part of it or us.

ILLEGAL to collect rainwater without permission!

2005 Senate Bill 5113 (Regarding rainwater collection )

Introduced by Sen. Paull Shin on January 13, 2005, to authorize the department of ecology to require any person desiring to appropriate water for a beneficial use to make an application to the department for a permit. The department may permit by rule the use of rain barrels and cisterns to collect rainwater intended for beneficial use on the same property from where it was collected.

Superconductors

I just realized last night that we are looking in the wrong place for room temperature superconductors. The modes of superconduction we have found so far are:
Very low temperature - very low pressure Niobuim-Titanium
low temperature - low pressure Ceramic

We are now exploring room temerature and low pressure to find new superconductors. After analyzing why materials superconduct, I dought we will find any usefull room temperature-low pressure superconductors. But We have not even explored the possibility of high temperature-high pressure superconductors, which should also occur. Another place where superconduction should occur, is in high temperature plazma's confined in a magnetic field. These types of superconductors should be easier to deal with, than low temperature ones. Only time will tell.

Where are the flames????

How Can it Be?

Bush Accuses Saddam of Telling the Truth

Evildoer Knowingly Came Clean on WMD's, President Charges

Just hours after confirming that the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was over, President George W. Bush leveled his harshest charge ever at Saddam Hussein, accusing the former Iraqi dictator of "knowingly telling the truth" about not possessing WMD in the months leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

Superconducting Storage devices

Niobuim-Titanate Energy storage rings have WMD potential. A washing machine sized device with a very large energy pulse introduced into the ring could easily devastate a square mile or more. If the liquid heluim is released very quickly the amount of energy released would be tremendous, in a very short period of time. Lower energy density ceramic superconductors probably do not have this capability because of much lower current densities , and higher magnetic flux pinning in crystal defects.

Police States of America

Well it seems to be official now, We have morphed into a police state right under our noses. Life imprisonment with no trial, for anyone deemed a threat, with no chance for recourse. Thinking differently is now a crime for which you can now be held indefinitly without a trial.
Torture is now condoned and expected by the highest levels of our government and ouir military. This is only the beginning of a slave labor force for the rich and powerful to exploit and abuse.
How long before just being poor is considered a crime? And the entire population is condemed to slave labor camps, reminiscent of the old soviet Gulags. The CIA and FBI have already become the modern day equivelent of the old soviet KGB. When will it end? We have already lost our liberty and freedom, but most of us just don't know it yet.
