THIS IS THE WAR THAT NEVER ENDS


It seems to go on and on.. 

After 11 years of war in Afghanistan, a new milestone has been hit: 2,000 United States soldiers have died during the conflict. 

There are few people at home now that pay any attention to what our troops are doing in that  nation. There aren't major bold headlines stating that 2,000 are dead as occurred in 2005 when the Iraq war deaths topped that tragic number.

The death tolls has been climbing in recent months in Afghanistan as more attacks take place on US troops. More police turning on those who trained them.. and much more resistance is taking place in some strongholds across the country..

Another untold story is the troops that don't fall in the fields of battle: There have been countless other stories of troops losing legs and arms, having mental and physical ailments.. and being scarred by a war in a faraway land that Americans stopped paying attention to.

And why did we stop paying attention to Afghanistan? It was a major issue in 2008 when President Obama made that his war to defend during the campaign. Obama said he wanted to win there. And now four years later we are talking about withdrawing major combat forces by 2014, but few are speaking about the current events in the nation.

It's another election year. During the Republican campaign, candidate Mitt Romney failed to mention the war in Afghanistan. Democrats saluted troops but surely didn't want to speak of the theater they are currently fighting in. It is hear no evil see no evil time in this country.. as our brave men and women still fight and often die in Kabul and caves surrounding it, we are greeted by headlines of stupidity. Kate Middleton's breast dangling and Honey Boo Boo's parents wrangling for money. The true valor and courage that is taking place among our military? Unspeakable since we talk nothing of it. The deaths taking place? the injuries? Speak no evil!

No headlines. No demands for answers on strategy. Nothing of the sort.
Not even yellow ribbons tied on trees.
Most of the flags are quite weathered and withering these days..

Somewhere in Time.. feels like so long ago now


Last night I listened a bit to Art Bell's 'Somewhere in Time.' Thankfully Mr. Bell has not yet been successful in getting Premiere Radio to stop broadcasting the past shows. Because when he finally does win, that will mean listeners will be stuck with right wing propaganda and .. the intelligence of George Noory. 

Last  night the past came back with Howard Rheinhold being interviewed about how the Internet would change everyone's life. They talked about 'smart phones' without calling them that, but instead they commented in amazement how you can get the Internet by just having a wireless card in an airport. 

So I thought back for a second in time. 2002. Where was I. What was I. I was a 22 year old kid who was, at that time, pretty addicted to the Internet. I had my own website by the time I was 18 years old.. the more I came to know how the net worked the better I liked it. I used email (really don't much anymore besides for work) and I also had a large gigantic cancer-causing AT&T phone. You know, one of those that would make someone ask if you're happy to see them. This was me in 2002.

So when I heard Art Bell and Rheinhold almost speak in bewilderment about how the future was coming fast, it seems like eons ago. It was just about 10 years ago. 

10 years in net time is light years.. 

Who would have thought in 2002 that people in China who mass produce iPhones would be trying to commit suicide so much that protective nets would have to be placed around the factory. And at that same factory riots take place and robots zoom around to check people for moods? Meanwhile the world eats up iPhones, forgetting the sweat, tears, and often BLOOD, that goes into producing them. We've heard of blood diamonds. Now we have blood dials.  I have one, too. There are times, though, I feel guilty as I search the net while in some obscure location. I'd be much happier if the factory conditions of where my phone was made would be just a little more ...humane.

It's fun to go back in time with Art Bell in general, but last night's show was particularly addictive. 

Maybe I'm just getting old way too fast but I don't think 2002 seems like that long ago. Until you think about it. 

And realize.. wow, that was 10 years ago already. Bush was president, we were only in one war, and people didn't have Facebook accounts. 

By God, they didn't even have Myspace pages, either. Angelfire and Geocities were king. Goodbye past. 

Hello suicidal technology and advanced robotic engineering, ready to disable humanity in place of a technocracy.

Dallas Texas suburb hit by minor earthquake


The stars are night are deep and bright, and so was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake that struck a Dallas Texas suburb, rattling nerves and knocking pictures off of walls. No major heartache or breakage, the airport kept on going, and despite the chance of aftershocks, life is going on as normal. As normal as you can get after your area gets an earthquake, even though it rarely does. The USGS said the quake hit at 11:05 CDT time Saturday .. 911 was flooded with calls, and a subsequent 3.1 aftershock occurred in proximity to the stronger shake..

This is yet another example of how the earth is changing, in some manner, and places that were once safe zones for certain things aren't anymore. Of course someone can say 'go back in history' and see all of the other times instances like this occurred in Texas--which they have--and prove me wrong. But perhaps the better thing to say would be during my lifetime, and maybe yours too, things like this are just plain out weird. Next thing you know there will be an East Coast earthquake that rattles the entire North American plate. Oh wait, that happened in August 2011. Strike that.

Did FOX News inadvertently get what it wanted?


I feel a bit bad for Shepard Smith of FOX NEWS this week. The network was covering a high speed car chase--as it so often does during slow news days--when the driver of the car drove down a dirt stretch, got out, and proceeded to commit suicide on live TV for all to see. Smith tried to get the station to stop airing before the shot to the head occurred, but was too late: Anyone paying attention saw a man take his own life on the news.. (MORE HERE)

The entire situation is pretty tragic. And quite surprising. I thought a 5 second delay was the normal course of business when covering life events. In this instance there was quite a FOX NEWS FAIL.

Or was it success?
Think about it..
In covering live car chases on television, what is a network expecting will happen? What are executives behind the camera hoping for? They want excitement! Drama! They want cars to zoom through residential neighborhood, being chased by police! They want high speed chases on expressways! Anything that can get someone to focus for an extended period of time on these events.

The fact that these car chases are so often covered by FOX makes me wonder if this new event that happened will cause someone to pause. Maybe more thought will go into the notion of just picking up local affiliate feeds of high speed pursuits. Or perhaps they will just utilize the 5 to 10 second delay more often.

Many people are decrying the coverage of the chase and suicide this week. Lots are coming down on FOX for appealing to a frenzied mass of people by even covering them to begin with. But I say, for as tragic and horrific as the situation became, it was a perfect win win for FOX. Those unnamed executives got what they wanted: The ultimate ending. No follow up needed. Suicide on live TV.

Perhaps we are just becoming inhumane in our treatment of fellow humans. That or we just like a good chase. Regardless of how it ends.

Shep Smith: I feel for you. But next time you're told to go to a high speed car chase? Maybe you should just cut to the commercial early...

A 'breaking up' of the earth's crust under the Indian Ocean

This website has written before about the April twin earthquakes in the Indian Ocean--8.6 and 8.2 in magnitude .. But now the NEW SCIENTIST has published an article reporting that the earth is cracking and breaking up under the Indian Ocean!

Scientists, in essence, are now looking into the earth changes in the post quake ocean. The earthquakes that large in magnitude typically occur at the boundary of tectonic plates. These didn't. So they were probably strike-slip earthquakes. Of course none have ever been recorded that strong..

The NEW SCIENTIST explains that the earth's crust began a once in a million year process of breaking a tectonic plate. A plate torn in two..

Supernova in the sky. Is the sun going to go wild?

Just read a very interesting but unscientific article on a website claiming that the sun was getting whiter brighter an hotter than ever before.. There weren't any findings within the text of the story that back up the author's point of view but there were rather vague memories from when he was younger.. He recalls a time when the sun was more yellow and less heated, according to his generic recollection of events..

It's an interesting thought, plus one that others have spoken about in recent years. There seems to be a fear that the sun is going super nova.. It's the newest end of time end of the world conspiracy concern--and has little to no hardcore evidence backing up that theory..

But I traveled into my own memories ... I recall, as well, a bright orange yellow sun. I remember hot days that were not oppressive.. Whether what the author of of ConspiracyHQ's story believes is a real fear or not, my memory also had me thinking of a kinder and gentler period of time for weather on this planet..

So I'd be curious of thoughts from readers out there. Do you believe that memories can make a mind believe the past was better than it was or is the sun going wild and ready to burn a hole right through the planet earth?? I would love thoughts from all..

I get it .. College kids like to binge drink

But the idea of placing an alcohol enema directly into your rear end seems to go be directly opposed to every form of common sense. What about the old days of ANIMAL HOUSE like behavior where at least one would enjoy the taste of the liquor .. But the enema maybe is quicker.

Forget about beer pong and bongs..hello anal lubrication with an onslaught of alcohol.. And now parents have something new to worry about: Binge drinking with a new angle.. And the angle all takes place in the 'back of the house' so to speak..

A dock from the Japanese tsunami has now washed ashore in Oregon..

Salt cavern below sinkhole has failed!

US bees vanishing at an alarming rate--still--19 crops are now at risk from Colony Collapse..

Russia suspends Monsanto corn!

A key US weather satellite used for monitoring the East Coast of the United States has gone offline..

A newly discovered comet, C/2012 S1 (ISON) is now located beyond the orbit of Jupiter.. it is set for a close encounter with the sun in 2013. And after that, the blind naked eye on earth may be able to see the comet in the night sky.. Will it fizzle like another Elenin? Or be visible for months in '13? Time will tell. All eyes on space, watching and waiting..

Hubble goes extra deep back in time..

Here is a report on how a whole lot of nuclear plant are in tsunami favorable locations .. It's convenient to have water supplying nuclear power..but as we saw in Japan it's less favorable when disaster occurs.

Majestic fall nights

If you are in the Northeast part of Pennsylvania, you already know tonight is the perfect fall night. Maybe it is where you are too, should you be absent the Pennsylvania skies.. 

There are a tremendous amount of stars visible tonight. Maybe it's the fresh cold air that got rid of the chemtrails and smog.. maybe it's just that right time of year to be outside--or maybe it's due to the fact that the street light in front of Horror Report home base is down for the count, unlit for days , actually nights, now..

Nonetheless, I gazed a bit at the stars while I had the chance. The breeze that was blowing was the kind that sent a cool chill down your spine but reminded you of the cold shivers that are on the way.

There is just something about fall that makes your heart get both melancholy and vibrant all at the same time.

My wife commented to me tonight that the smell of fall is both awesome but depressing. She's right.

The Bloomsburg fair is going on right now. It's a happy time of year filled with memories. I recall fondly being a teenager at the fair.. even younger.. in my 20s.. and now 30s. And coming full circle, this year my wife and I brought the little man named Ayden to the fair. We are parents. And by God, we are keeping traditions alive and hoping to create new ones.

But that is what surrounds my mind tonight: That creeping feeling that traditions, for as much as one tries to fight for them to survive, don't. Often a death in the family ends them all. Think about it.. Christmas dinner may be something of the past one grandmother passes away.. Or just like as occurred in Ashland, PA a few years ago, if a town chooses to cancel an ABA Labor Day parade, hundreds of families and thousands of people won't have a party. Traditions can end in a heart beat.

I have a vivid memory of my childhood. It's one of those 'bits and pieces' type of recalls.. one where you know your surroundings but weren't sure what was going on.  I remember walking towards the front door of my house in Centralia, PA, when  I was probably about 4 or 5. It was around this time of year because I fondly recall the biting wind, a Frankenstein window dressing on the door, and laughter. It's amazing and frightening how fast time blows on...

I was talking to a friend this evening who I didn't see in much too long of time. He and I were quite shocked through the text messaged we exchanged when we realized  it had been a DECADE since we saw each other, talked to each other, and shared a drink and memory. We have Facebook, of course. People live vicariously through that. Vigorously vicarious as a matter  of fact. But I think I'm entering a stage in life when I want to abandon the virtual for the real again. I want to rid myself of the holiday Facebook cards and instead go to someone's house, pay a visit, stay for a warm drink...

You know. Real stuff. Actual things. Not virtual.
We did that about ten years ago. Incidentally that is about the last time I saw a great friend. And where, really, did the past ten years get us? You answer that one.

And coming full circle, this year my wife and I brought the little man named Ayden to the fair. We are parents. And by God, we are keeping traditions alive and hoping to create new ones.

But that is what surrounds my mind tonight: That creeping feeling that traditions, for as much as one tries to fight for them to survive, don't. Often a death in the family ends them all. Think about it.. Christmas dinner may be something of the past one grandmother passes away.. Or just like as occurred in Ashland, PA a few years ago, if a town chooses to cancel an ABA Labor Day parade, hundreds of families and thousands of people won't have a party. Traditions can end in a heart beat.

I have a vivid memory of my childhood. It's one of those 'bits and pieces' type of recalls.. one where you know your surroundings but weren't sure what was going on.  I remember walking towards the front door of my house in Centralia, PA, when  I was probably about 4 or 5. It was around this time of year because I fondly recall the biting wind, a Frankenstein window dressing on the door, and laughter. It's amazing and frightening how fast time blows on...

I was talking to a friend this evening who I didn't see in much too long of time. He and I were quite shocked through the text messaged we exchanged when we realized  it had been a DECADE since we saw each other, talked to each other, and shared a drink and memory. We have Facebook, of course. People live vicariously through that. Vigorously vicarious as a matter  of fact. But I think I'm entering a stage in life when I want to abandon the virtual for the real again. I want to rid myself of the holiday Facebook cards and instead go to someone's house, pay a visit, stay for a warm drink...

You know. Real stuff. Actual things. Not virtual.
We did that about ten years ago. Incidentally that is about the last time I saw a great friend. And where, really, did the past ten years get us? You answer that one.

A new factoid about America: Is the dream vanishing?

The worldwide press is paying more attention to this tidbit than American counterparts: There are more Americans now that die as a result of suicide than from car crashes.. the UK DAILY MAIL reports on a study conducted by the American Journal of Public Health, which believes that suicide is under counted..

The DAILY MAIL headline however says this: "More Americans now commit suicide than die in car crashes as miserable economy takes it toll"

The world itself has seen some strange occurrences involving the collapse of humanity recently..Whether it's the spike in suicides around the globe or just kids being abandoned in Greece, there are some rough times facing people.

ZOMBIES INVADE SCRANTON--MOSTLY TO GET DRUNK

I have said it before and unfortunately I am going to say it again: I am quite tired of zombies..
Yes, even me, the HORROR REPORTER, is sick of hearing about them.

If it's not the government issuing fake warnings about zombies instead of talking to citizens as adults it's zombie conferences--much like the one now taking place in Scranton, PA. It's the Lackawanna Historical Society's fourth annual Scranton After Dark Walking Tour, and men and women dressed in zombie attire are roaming the streets of the Electric City.

But the premise is interesting. I'm relatively close. I didn't actually know about this but if I did I may have tried to attend for the fun of it. The tour the Historical Society does is a virtual walking tour of the macabre of the city of Scranton, such as how bodies were stored in basements of businesses during the flu outbreak in the early 20th century, or tales of voices still being heard in some buildings. There were hangings in the town square.  And all that stuff other towns have too, probably.

But why the zombies?
This: The Infect Scranton Zombie Convention. That's right, There is a zombie convention taking place within the boundaries of Scranton. And being a Saturday night in the Northeast of PA, there is also a bar crawl (maybe literally) of people dressed as the dead drinking like they are alive but dying.. 

However, not all are happy that the living dressed as the deceased have entered their city limits. 

The local newspapers in Scranton and Northeast PA, including the TIMES TRIBUNE, is covering the zombiethon. But naysayers are also commenting on stories posted. The comments sections is dicing up the zombie weekend. One comment pointed out that the Riverside High School is sponsoring the INFECT SCRANTON ZOMBIE CONVENTION .. Another comment from someone says this:
What a bunch of puke minded degenerates. If they want to see blood and guts why don't some of them join the service of their country. And if they want to see torn and maimed bodies; let them visit the Veterans hospital.
Perhaps that comment is a little too much.
But what is NOT too much to me is the overabundance of zombies in our pop culture. They have undoubtedly taken over the aliens of the 20th century and the vampires of the early 21st. Zombies are everywhere. There are people even taking so many drugs that they are turning into flesh eating monsters.
And the government, constantly, warns people to be ready for the zombie attacks--they use zombies as the basis for us to get ready for natural disasters, but being it as it is, they just can't be frank enough to tell us disasters are coming and instead rely on fictitious zombies.

But that is that. And people are dressing like the dead tonight in Scranton. Having fun. So let them. But who will clean up the vile zombie bile and drunken vomit in the morning? The city of Scranton, no doubt.

Wells back with Saturday night UFOs

The Caravan to Midnight is once again ditching politics and new world order conspiracy.

In turn, John B Wells will host a second weekend Saturday night show with UFOs as the topic.

This week, Wells brings in Vince Rotonda and Colet Abedi, both producers for a new TV series called UNSEALED ALIEN FILES. 

It's worth noting that narration of the show is done by someone with a familiar voice--Wells.

According to Coast To Coast AM's website, the topic tonight with both will be government cover ups of the subject, UFO sights and abductions, and photoshopped pictures ..

Should be interesting.

As John B would see, brew the proper cup of tea and board the Caravan to Midnight.
