ONCE WE WERE FREE
EMPHASIS: TELLING IT HOW IT WAS TALES FROM OLD FORUM ARCHIVE
In this age of increased control, maybe the old-timers should recount how it was once, so the kids get an alternative take. Historical necessity, eh? When I was a kid we got to run through the fields, haunt the streams (you know after the chores, just be sure to show up for dinner...) We had kid stage plays, puppet theaters, hawked lemonade, marched in spontaneous parades.
How about it? YOUR TALES O´ YORE?
TELLING IT HOW IT WAS
SPECIAL FORUM AREA TALES AROUND THE POTBELLY STOVE
My life has been durned strange, has yours? Bet it has too. When I was a kid there were still General Stores, a pot-belly, apple barrel and old-timers with their tales. We whippersnappers used to skirt the shadows to listen. Better than TV, well, ahem, in my youth radio. Got any stories?

In a minor coup, some General takes over the government of a single country. In a Grand Coup the entire world order is transformed. The whole Enlightenment heritage has been abandoned: constitutional government, civil liberties, balance of powers, government accountability. International law has been abandoned, and national sovereignty is becoming a subject for nostalgia buffs.

EDITOR'S NOTE: My friend, National Guard, just got shipped off to Bush's illegal and impossible war in Iraq, and I have children [do you?] that might end up in Iraq because of the disgusting Fascist Skull & Bones Administration. It is my responsibility as a father and a citizen TO RESIST [based on painstaking and painful research]. Some of you think ORBIT is just about solar watch-- it is not. Although many others have helped ORBIT is my workshop and voice. If you disagree on particular points do so intelligently in forum which has been provided for debate.

Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961 In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. --Dwight D. Eisenhower

The Other Shoe America Built A Prison And Put The World On Death Row
"But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and then denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -- [Braut] Hermann Goering
On the morning of 911 I was contacted by a fellow from California that had access to an uninterrupted global newswire and together we began to record the events and to open the process to the Internet community. Little did I realize that the investigation would continue with a formal command center until Feb 3, 2003, and informally since. Hundreds of people joined in the watch. Kent Steadman

Discovered by chance, a revolutionary battery powered by water only, could one day light up a whole city October 20, 2003
London: The battery of the future could be powered by nothing but water, following a breakthrough by two Canadian scientists who have discovered an entirely new way to generate electricity - the first since 1839.
Initial applications could be cellphones and other electronic devices that now use rechargeable batteries, but Larry Kostiuk and Daniel Kwok, researchers at the University of Alberta who made the discovery, think that in time it could even be used for full-scale power generation.
When the "water battery" ran down, you would simply pump it up, perhaps with your hands. It would be non-polluting and non-toxic and completely portable. And it could be ready for commercial application before the end of the decade.
Free electric power has been available since yr. 1900!!

RUMORS FOR INVESTIGATION:
1. Iraq: something went wrong over a payoff in counterfeit bills:
Whatever opinion you have made of Saddam Hussein, he is NOT some dummy. The superior quality hundred dollar U.S. paper money bills, that flooded Iraq and the Mid-East, by Daddy Bush---well, Saddam, in turn, dumped them on Europe and from which, they are coming back to haunt and trouble the United States.
|To cover up this treason and criminality done by Daddy Bush against the American people and their organic law, the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, his son, George W. Bush, the resident and occupant of the Oval Office installed by a military Junta- style Five of the U.S. Supreme Court, feels obligated to find a reason to protect Bush the Elder by violently seeking to remove the Baghdad regime--Skolnik|
2. Afghanistan is all about CENTGAS 2, a pipeline and a Taliban double-cross.

To the ones who carry a canupa. Others may also listen and follow his suggestion.
My friends, my relatives maybe I want to tell you something thats very important. The date is 23 November 2003. Its the solar eclipse. Remember to pray and honor Earth Mother and change your whole way of life. Give thanks for everything and appreciate the oxygen that comes from trees. The trees are dying so pray sincerely so the trees will not die. Pray even a little harder for 23 November. Maybe Earth Mother is trying to tell us something. Maybe Earth Mother is saying that she is trying to get back in balance. We have to expect more Spiritual Shock. Maybe some of us will listen to Earth Mother, maybe some of us will learn, maybe some of us won't.
Earth Mother is our beginning and our home. Pray sincerely so she will be merciful to the children and future generations. What have we done so this happened? Why is Earth Mother not in balance? What can we do to help? Pray, give thanks, change your whole way of life. Honor Earth Mother and nature and remember your reason for being here now.

NOW READY: succesfully prepared to autorun on most PCs. Written in HTML, brings up your default Browser. Should work on MAC although you might have to manually access index.html as described in instructions.
Note: if you already have an Orbit Disc, you may or may not need this upgrade. I think I can post the new stuff [only] to the Internet for your download. No, it would be impossible to the whole 650 megs, you will need to have the disc already. I'll work on this supplement, just thought of the idea [still working on this aspect.]
Giving it back: let me know if you want a CD. Essentially this is ALL of ORBIT on Disc.
ORBIT CD The Secrets of Everything!
SOON KENTA'S WORKSHOP
|650 megs of orbit archives preserved for posterior, oops I mean posterity,
I've sent the CD out free to many supporters and folks that are broke, other donations have ranged from $10.00 to more (general Orbit support). No, I can't send them all free because I'd go busted-flat with shipping. But tell me your tale o' woe, and if your story is more desperate than my own I WILL give you one at my expense. The materials and shipping cost me about $7.00.
I make them each at home on my CD burner, signed and edition-number like the print artist's craft. Each one takes about 15 minutes to make and I wait until I get about 20 requests to set up for the ordeal.
Egads here I go again! Pray for my CD burner!
TO ORDER AN ORBIT CD PLEASE USE REGULAR MAIL ONLY OR I'LL GET LOST. Just send a simple request with where to ship.
NOTE: I'll be burning discs this weekend, the first to be sent out by Monday.
