hellosailor Al Gore had a priceless comment during a Charlie Rose interview a few weeks ago. He said the problem isn't that man in office, it's the whole way the government is being run, and arguing about one man just wasn't going to fix it.

Scary day when I find myself agreeing with the Algorithm...but his point was priceless. And no doubt lost on most of the folks who are allowed to vote when they shouldn't be.

Sailormann HS - I agree that he got the targets wrong (but we all make mistakes sometimes - even God) but it did happen while the White House was under Republican lockdown...errr, I meant to say occupied by a Republican President

hellosailor Sailormann, I think your God must be confused, or messing with your head. Last time someone creamed a couple million DEMOCRATS in the Democratic city of New Orleans in the Democratic state of Louisiana...A democratic mayor and governor took a lot of flack for screwing up, while that Republican in the White House got to look concerned and play soldier for the day. He had a real good time, but them dem's got smashed.

I dunno; the weather does always look pleasent up there whenever I watch the news. It miraculous how the weather (being reported) seems to majically stop right at the border!! Gee! How DO you guys DO it!
Well when I was talking to God last night (he hangs out in Canada a lot these days) he indicated that he is not too fond of the Republicans anymore... (If you check your historical weather records, I think you'll find an amusing correlation between a Republican White House and weather disturbances... and please note that I said it was AMUSING and nothing else)

Maybe I should get dual citizenship as a Canuk in order to postion myself for the big day! . . . eh?
Gee ... I'm not sure, but I'd venture to say that you'd be much happier in the US... we don't like (hand)guns, have high taxes, a lot of socialist policies, and care less about individual "rights" than we do about the common good...

sailingdog It might be interesting for all of you 9/11 debaters to look at the video titled "Loose Change, 2nd Edition", which you can see here.

Passport revelation

Psst, hate to kill all this important discussion re passport, but since I am a victim of Massachusetts I feel qualified to actually state why all this 'new' passport malarky even exist. $MONEY$. Like homeland security and 'our' Mass. Water Resource Authority,[don't drink the water or eat the fish?] its all guff, all about money for what we can compare to the politburo, 2007. Mao said "We will conquor you from within". Now with 12-30 million illeagal aliens on board and demanding 'rights' you have to truthfull and admit homeland security, new passport regs are just that. Looks like Mao is vindicated. While people focus on the sky [global warming and gay rights] the country has been...lost. Whew, that is depressing. Makes you want to just sail away from it all!

Thanks for bringing up the original post.

I think pass ports are a good thing.

Sasha_V Quite.

Oh yeah...because I can't sleep and left out one part of the post I was answering.

Traces of thermite and how it got there.....

Aluminium and iron oxide equals....anybody? Anybody at all? Say it loud now, most of us played with making it as kids...THERMITE.

Yep, your magical miracle trace element.

...And not just for burning through your parents garage roller door either.

You can refine it, you can do funky things that make it burn hotter or more directionally depending on what medium you adhere it to...but at the end of the day thermite is iron rust and aluminium.

oxidising iron like the window frames of the bulding for instance.....andaluminium like...of, I don't know....say a goodly percentage of 40+ tons of commercial aircraft....

As further reading, you may want to check out the original building specs and plans. I am sure they had to include the proposed controlled demolition specs (you do not get permission to build sky-scrapers in built up areas without explaining how you would make them go away after their usefull lifespan). I think you will find that the vertical pancaking is a sort of design feature of those towers....especially as the alternative is, as pointed out by the previous poster, taking out huge swaiths of city.
