"Mind boggles" seem to be the order of the day since the year 2000, more specifically Dec. 12, 2000 when we all seemed to be shoved down the rabbit hole and swirling around with the strangest of characters. Those characters turned out, for the most part, to be our government and their faithful minions. Much of the time I feel like Alice in America. We need a governmental department to check their meds on a regular basis and to make sure they take them or maybe they could drink more water and get their meds that way.
The crusader of Wall Street, the hero of the little guy, the white knight fighting corporate corruption, Eliot Spitzer has been felled. He was felled by his own sword and his enemies piling on top to make sure he is sliced and diced to death. It wasn't the far right evangelicals, or the keepers of rigid morals who brought him down, oh no, it was a bank. (Spitzer June 10, 1959 Bronx, NY N/T)
Money, one of the seven deadly sins, not illigal sex, but money. The government had been watching how Eliot had been spending his money. I expect they've been watching him since he cut the legs out from under Enron. Course Eliot helped them with his Leo stellium of Venus, Mrs, Moon and Uranus, pushed forward by his Gemini Sun and Mercury. His real problems begin when Pluto opposed his 28 degree Gemini Mercury, bad news being revealed. No question that Spitzer stuck the knife in himself but he isn't the only politician playing this game, both parties are knee deep in their egos and their pet perversions up to and including those at the top, that however is always kept under wraps. Gee, whatever happened to Jeff Gannon and his sleep overs at the WH. Several houses of prostitution say business is much better at GOP conventions than the Dem conventions.
In the meantime New York will likely be run by Lt. Gov. David A Paterson (May 20, 1954, New York N/T) The first African American who is legally blind to head the state and that could be a good thing for NY. However looking at his chart, he might not have the easiest time of it for the duration of the term, not from the GOP in his state or the Dems, and politics will go on.
Watching all of this, and we are all spectators, could have the effect of empowering the people as we see the incompetence at least at the level we view our own incompetence and in some cases at a greater level. No matter who's up or who's down Americans continue to be the final arbiter. We unfortunately don't really comprehend what that means but we are learning and will continue to learn as Pluto fully moves into Capricorn and opposes American's Venus. In the meantime our economy continues to tumble with other countries laughing at our dollar because they know we are on the verge of collapse but we don't want to face that one as yet, it will be after the election that our bill comes due. We find out that this war is costing us 3 trillion dollars, Obama and Hillary are throwing stupid high school barbs at one another with Hillary seeming so furious that the US has yet to buy the proclamation delivered all of 2007 that she was the only obvious choice and McCain acting like the only grown up in the group. As I said, here we are "Alice in America." It seems the only comic relief is watching the mechanization of those we've brought to office and let stay watching them shoot themselves in the foot over and over again. My hope is the picture of Alice finally getting out of the rabbit hole with a mature and changed view of the world, I always believe we will too.
It doesn't matter who or what someone sleeps with except the people they hurt in their personal lives, but it does matter when witch hunts go out. http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Lawyer_questions_whether_Spitzer_was_set_0311.html
At least it should matter to us, because it could be anyone of us. Look what they did to Siegleman for absolutely no reason and I doubt if he will get out of prison alive.
Mr. Spitzer broke so many laws on so many levels, not the least of which was interstate trafficking, he will have to make a deal with the Feds to stay out of prison, that's why he hasn't resigned. Hope this girl was worth the money. Given the sexual track record of so many politicians and attorneys, including Bill Clinton, I can't understand why prostitution hasn't been declared legal.
The GOP of all things whose hands are so dirty and bloody from all the real corruption and money laundering they do are threatening to impeach him if he doesn't resign within 48 hours and yet Nancy Pelosi cannot find reasons to impeach this president and vice president. Goodness, America having to go through that again? Wow the thought of it. Much better to have the GOP lie, kill our soldiers and innocent people, steal us blind no laws broken there.
I expect Spitzer to resign but I also expect there to be a deal so he won't have to go to prison for long. I also expect it to be drawn out in the news cycle for a bit, long enough to remind the American People of Bill and Hillary and the nightmare that brought to this country and might not want to take another chance of that happening again, or it might make Hillary seem even more of a victim and make people so mad at the GOP all over again that the Dems vote her in just to show them. Ms. Clinton has scrubbed Spitzer's endorsement from her site, so she has concerns about being associated with this scandal in any manner.
UPDATES Admiral Fallon (Dec. 30, 1944 East Orange, NJ n/t)
Well, well, well. Georgie porgie puddin and pie kissed "Iran" and made them cry. So Admiral Fallon is fired (Neptune was opposing his Venus and Jupiter coming up on his South Node) Looks like Georgie is coming to Iran, Fallon said it would never happen on his watch so they got rid of one major strong voice left at the Pentagon and Centcom. Looks like Hillary and Obama will get the 3:00am ringing phone sooner that they think. I am still concerned if this group of thugs sitting in our nations capital will let the election go on, now I am even more concerned. Admiral Fallon was the only person there that was keeping their itchy finger off the trigger. Admiral Fallon is a Capricorn with a Sun at 8 degrees, next year Pluto will go over that Sun and we can expect to hear more from Admiral Fallon. His Mercury is in Sagittarius conj. Mars, I don't think he is going to be quiet.
