This blog will be my final record. Let them say what they will about me – lurid allegations regarding livestock abuse, rumors and innuendo so horrid no one will speak my name for a hundred years. It won’t matter, because I said this first.
Kill the name, and the body will die. The Egyptians knew that. And the Romans.
Damnatio memoriae. And so let it be. They will lie to discredit my story. Blood libel; it goes that far back – as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Then and now. Salt the fields. Carthage to Cosby. No one just disappears. First they erase your name in time’s memory, convince the world you’re not worth worrying about. When no one cares, anymore, then they come for you – and no one left will question, anymore, why you haven’t been heard from, what the trial verdict was, why a canvas bag was seen dumped into the Alviso slough one mighnight. A missed hit on an Internet search database, nothing more. I tell you now to pay no attention to the lies that will come. I’m innocent1. If tomorrow I am arrested, it is because today I told the truth.

You can imagine what they would have done with a howitzer. Antony and Cleopatra … well, there wouldn’t have been a Cleopatra, because she was Greek, and the Egyptians would have conquered the world a thousand years before that.
Any primitive tribe that was given, as von Daniken seems to think, something so astronomically advanced as to be beyond Earthly invention would have used that technology to take over the forest, the continent, and eventually the world.
So, if we want to know who the aliens really visited, all we have to do is look at who rules the world today.
Forget peyote and pyramids … we were visited by the Space Bankers.
Obviously, 10,000 years ago, ancient aliens made contact with a primitive tribe of White Republican accountants dwelling somewhere on the shore of the Thames. The aliens taught them the secrets of double-entry bookkeeping and usurious interest, and with that they have taken over the world. Perhaps someday those ancient ones will return to teach them more …
… or perhaps the truth is far more sinister …
Add to this the fact that when the housing market crashed, the net result was a transfer of vast quantities of land into the hands of a few wealthy landowners. From one perspective, the entire housing bubble was simply a massive land grab the scale of which we are only now beginning to perceive. And one we cannot recover from, because the crippling levels of student debt the average American is lodestoning around means a mortgage is out of reach for any but the wealthy.
- Well, except for the indecent exposure charge, but that’s only because the cats don’t seem to understand that demanding they go in and out and in and out and in and out 13 times an hour doesn’t work well at 3 in the morning when I’m buck ass nekkid. Also, the drunk in public one. Drunk and disorderly. Drunk and orderly. Generally disorderly. But not the stuff about goats.
- I know that’s worse than even most climatologists say. Nature has a way of acting highly nonlinearly, and when we reach the tipping point, I think it will be faster and worse than anyone anticipated.
