 US Presidents Taken to Ground Zero
I have read the following before, and don't find some of it that synchronistic... except for the correlations between JFK and Lilcoln:

When a president gets elected in a year with a "0"

Look what happens when a President gets elected in a year with a "0" at the end. Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years.

1840: William Henry Harrison (died in office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)
1880: James A. Garfield (assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (assassinated)
1920: Warren G. Harding (died in office)
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (died in office)
1960: John F. Kennedy (assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (survived assassination attempt)
2000: George W. Bush ????????????

And to think that we had two guys fighting it out in the courts to be the one elected in 2000.

And, have a history teacher explain this----- if they can:

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress! s in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.
Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.
Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who (supposedly!) assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.
Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford'.
Kennedy was shot in a car called 'Lincoln' made by 'Ford'.
Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker:

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

 'The War is Over and God Bless America'
Some comments in my Glastonbury email list in the UK:
"yep that's it.
it's over bar the shouting.
live pictures now showing US soldiers have completely taken Baghdad - Iraqis are coming out and swamping them and saying things like 'America is great'
only about 30,000 iraqis killed and only about 1300 civilians.
ok so there's no Saddam and there never was any WMD but they've done it.
They control the oil and the middle east and they've shown that they are the best and most civilised nation on Earth.
God Bless America and Tony Blair is absolutely guaranteed to be elected again."

"just been watching one of those moments in history similar to the Berlin wall as they pulled that statue down.
war is over. can we bring the troops home now please?
I accept now that the peace marches did absolutely nothing - zilch - and they won't ever do again. those days are gone.
but I am glad for the Iraqi people, I am glad that this war is as good as done.
We have seen the destruction of the UN and international law. We have seen that democracy is fluid and easy to manipulate. We have seen the New World Order in action with all it's troops, lies and propaganda and we can see what is in store and there's not a damn thing we can do about it.
so we might as well accept it and at least have a peaceful life of our own.
The US will take over the world. that is certain and at the UK will be with them every step of the way.
poor old France."

"As someone pointed out in the Guardian, just because someone
amputates a leg neatly, it doesn't mean it was necessarily the best thing for the patient.

Anyone betting on law and order in Iraq over the next days and weeks?"

 Pure Lust vs. Lost Blood
"A world with many fruits yet bared and many more in prime
To pull apart the pulpy flesh and sip from what's inside
In ecstasy the warmth within is felt by sallow hands
Which mold an all to willing flesh entranced by feral eyes
Journey's end in lands once verboten,
By Crimson Might the precept was broken
From the skies yet more descend and swoop upon the tithe
For as Lords and Ladies this must surely be their prize
A glint of Mistress in their blades before they find their mark
And in the wake of frenzy's end the sated now depart
Silhouettes on ancient walls await the coming of nightfall
where shadows pale as one
As one blade with many wills with ceremonies end the nature reveals
The need for the piercing blows - an opiate to the night
By the Scarlet Lust Within the new found world will fall
In a land far, far from the source, far from the light
Order decayed, decay wore away the immortal pride
Greener pastures overcome by foul decay
The strongest first to fall with the weakest easily swayed
With a scarlet gauntlet I rule by might that shall never be tethered
In the Black & Crimson Glory I exist forever
