APRIL Enigma: The Date When Bad Things Happen 4/15/17

FK – The most important April event: Patriots Day, the day they shot back. It’s our nation’s true birthday and should be a national holiday and celebrated more than the fourth.

The surrender of the Confederacy was indeed a sorrowful event. It allowed the radical Republicans, who were the ‘big govt.’ advocates of our day, to turn our nation into an empire. Read “The Real Lincoln.”

At least you mentioned tax day, the day millions file forms they’re not legally required to file for an amendment that was never ratified by enough states to become law:

Freedom Above Fortune

The Law That Never Was

And you missed the early April tornado outbreak of the early 70s.

The first guy to ever run a marathon dropped dead. Which may be why I never had any desire to participate in one.

If world war III(or whichever number we’re really on now) happens it may very well be due to this insanity.

But we’ll forgive you. You young fellers can’t be expected to know everything.

The killer bees of fake news

Send In The Weathermen

They embed with Navy SEALs, Delta Force and Army Rangers. Ahead of major operations they also head in first for a go/no-go forecast. America’s parachutes don’t pop until a SOWT gives the all-clear.

That was Brady Armistead’s job as his helicopter rumbled toward a strip of desert 80 miles south of Kandahar, the capital of the Taliban government. He had a satellite forecast calling for clear skies. But satellite forecasts depend on ground data, too, and there was nothing from Afghanistan.

Five years earlier, when the Taliban seized power, it granted sanctuary to Al Qaeda and ruled by a strict interpretation of the Koran. No television or movies, mandatory burkas for women and long beards for men — plus no weather reports.

The Taliban considered forecasting to be sorcery. They fired the country’s 600 or so professional meteorologists, shelled the Afghan Meteorological Authority, and burned the country’s vast climatological archives.

That created a blind spot in global weather data, which is typically pooled and shared between the world’s governments. The Pentagon felt it had a fix in SOWTs like Armistead, jump-ready scientists with the God-given guts to do the weather behind enemy lines.

FK – Know thine enemies…  and remember that we outnumber them.
