RC> Since ever, Matt.

RC>  There are people who have been known to be HIV+ for longer 
RC>  than the expected incubation period who still show no 
RC>  symptoms.

     All seven of them.  That makes my statement correct to about 
99.9999 points.  

RC>  There are cases of accquired immune deficiency with no HIV 
RC>  detected.

     Only under the most recent definition.  Your claim is what I 
predicted would happen when the definition of AIDS was changed.

RC>  Many people want to assume that HIV is some super virus.  
RC>  That because it attacks the immune system there is no way 
RC>  for the body to fight it off.
RC> 
RC>  It is a *dangerous* virus, that is clear.  But there is no 
RC>  logic whatsoever is making an assumption that it can not be 
RC>  defeated by the body's natural defenses.

     By seven people.  Are you in a gambling mood?

RC>  There is no reason to assume that any of the people who are 
RC>  HIV+ and show no symptoms *must* develop AIDS.  They are 
RC>  definitely a high risk group, but it stops there.

     You are kidding yourself.

                          Burn Him!
                             by
                         Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <6/27>
     Alternate titles for this article were "Heresy!" and "31
Million Missing, 12 Million Dead."  This is could also be called
"The Confessions of a Heretic."  What did I do?
     For decades I had been listening to the stories of the
Holocaust.  I believed them.  I had faith.  Certainly there was
no question of the 12 million or so who died in concentration
camps and there still is no question of it.
     Then I found a correspondent who was in investigator for the
War Crimes Courts after the war.  His unit accounted for four
executions, two life imprisonments, and a total of 65 years for
four others.  He kept his original notes.  His name is in the
Hall of the Righteous in Israel.
     He did not mention his name being in the Hall of the
Righteous.  I uncovered that while checking out his credentials.
He may be mistaken but he is certainly the last person to lie and
from what he did say it is difficult to imagine how he could
exaggerate and not be a screenwriter for Steven Spielberg.
     He has also written and lectured on the subject of the
Holocaust.  He was telling me nothing new.  Nothing he had not
said for years.
     He pointed out that no one was charged with gassing at
Nuremberg and thus obviously no one was convicted of gassing
anyone.  He pointed out the Rudolph Hoess, the notorious
Commandant of Auschwitz was never arrested but, after he
surrendered, was kept under house surveillance.  He was never
charged at Nuremberg.
     After his testimony against his superiors at Nuremberg he
was arrested and turned over to the Russians at the request of
General Rudenko and charged with gassing Russian citizens.  After
a two day trial he was acquitted of those charges for failure of
the prosecution to produce evidence there was any gassing.  He
was later tried on charges of crimes against the Russian people
and hung.
     This was the key to the issue.  Here was a man purported to
have written a book between the time of his surrender in 1946 and
his execution in 1947.  That book, Commandant of Auschwitz,
amounts to a full confession of gassing.  And yet the Russians
acquitted him of that charge for lack of evidence.
     Not even asking when he had time to write this book why
would not such a confession lead to a conviction on exactly those
charges?  It is obvious it did not exist at the time and what has
been published is a forgery.
     My correspondent went further.  He heard the first report of
gas chambers.  It was brought in by a fellow investigator and
the team immediately flew to a camp outside of Munich to examine
the evidence.
     The people reporting the gassing were asked to identify the
building where it occurred.  They identified four buildings with
no certainty.  None of the four were found suitable for gassing
and one of them was the office of the commandant of the camp.  As
he said, they could find no credible evidence of any gas
chambers.
     He pointed out there were attempts to follow up the charges
as a group of Russian officers had reported they found gas
chambers at Auschwitz.  However, the Russians refused access to
Auschwitz-Birkenau.  And it is noted their own court had thrown
out these reports in the Hoess trial.  Thus the evidence from
Auschwitz is not credible.
     It turns out that Lenin ordered the construction of a gas
chamber at Auschwitz some years later.  Then and only then were
people permitted to view what Lenin ordered to be built.  It is
interesting to examine what he ordered constructed.
     This is the famous room, the first gas chamber described in
Kommandant of Auschwitz.  In the book it was a spontaneous
experiment carried out hardly a month after the infamous Wannasee
Conference is supposed to have ordered the method used.  At this
point in my reconsideration of events I was reviewing some
material from people who were already skeptics of gassing.
     It turns out this was a rather small room and yet the
description is of at least 700 people being stuffed into it.
This works out to about three people per square foot.  And yet
the description of events holds that Nazis in gas masks walked
freely through the room pouring out Zyklon-B pellets.  It also
holds the room was prepared by covering glass windows with dirt
-- some glass.
     On cursory inspection the story is incredible.  Yet this is
the story.  And if one asks for better evidence?  This is where
the heresy comes in.
     I have asked for evidence.  I have presented all of the
above and more.  The response I have received is, "You are
denying the Holocaust."
     I have been asked how people died and I respond they were
worked to death in conditions of no sanitation and no medication
and on starvation level food.  That satisfies no one.  I have
been told by implication that a quick death by gassing is worse
than a slow death from disease and starvation.
     I have have dozens of people literally refuse to respond to
my requests because they know the truth.  When I ask them why
they will not post the evidence of that truth they refuse to
respond.
     Have I denied the Holocaust in anything of the above?  Yet
almost every response I have received has been a claim that I
have denied there was any massive death of Jews regardless of the
stipulation I have made up front.
     This is an interesting matter of mass psychology.  If I were
in the Dark Ages and professed to be a Christian and questioned
the Trinity the cry would be "Heretic" and the well done stake
would not be far behind.  In the 20th century I can profess to
believe in the deaths of tens of millions but if I question one
particular means of death the claim is that I have denied all of
the deaths.
     Deny the Trinity and deny Christianity.
     There is no difference.
     Now does anyone fail to understand the fervor of Torquemada
or the entire Inquisition?  Any slightest deviation from accepted
dogma, any slightest questioning of one small aspect of dogma is
considered the same as denying EVERYTHING.
     Watch the responses to this article if you think there is a
difference.  The responses will give you a concrete example of
the Inquisitional mentality as it exists today.

     You know that is a lie.  Why do you continue to post it?

CB>      My point is AIDS is a problem for everyone.

     The data on who is getting the disease do not bear that out.  

     Homosexuals primarily with IV drug users coming up a good 
second.  The former case have known their behavior causes the 
problem since 1984.  The latter case are hardly worth saving 
anyway.  

     Both groups have a severely limited life expectancy.  Give 
them their pain killers and send them home.  There is no cure.  
There is no indication that any of the treatments, no matter how 
expensive prolong life more than six months. 

     It is a waste of time and money.

MD> RC>-->Does it make sense to you that life could be what it is
MD> RC>-->today if almost all air breathing life on the planet was
MD> RC>-->wiped out? (Except for the logistically impossible "Two of
MD> RC>-->each.")

MD> Point one: Noah and his wife.
MD>            Ham and his wife.
MD>            Shem and his wife.
MD>            Japheth and his wife.

MD>   That's eight humans, and enough time aboard the ark for 
MD>  the conception and delivery of 4 more, assuming Noah and 
MD>  wife were still viable, and no twins were born.

     Not a large enough gene pool for a viable species.  

MD>  Point two: Statistics of gestation among small livestock in 
MD>  today's environment notwithstanding, have you ever raised 
MD>  any small livestock yourself.  A reasonable animal 
MD>  husbandman (read farmer) (well alright, animal 
MD>  husbandperson) (OK OK animal spouse person) can keep nearly 
MD>  any small livestock viable, and producing, through nearly 
MD>  any kind of difficulty.

     Of fifty million species?

MD>  Yes, I do know about cross-breeding, but how many basic 
MD>  animal types does it take to create all the various types 
MD>  we know today by cross breeding.  

     Exactly as many as there are species.

And animals do THAT all by 
MD>  themselves, without any help from us.  Large livestock DO 
MD>  present more difficulties when it comes to delivery, but 
MD>  God IS able.  

     Another miracle invoked to save the fable of a flood in 2250 
BC.

See my earlier comments on faith, and quit 
MD>  asking US for proof.  If you want God to cease to exist, you 
MD>  can't WISH him away.  You'll have to PROVE him away.

     There is no need for that.  There is no evidence of the 
existence of any god.  Those who make the claim bear the burden 
of proof.

MD>  I've not seen any of these threads claim that God doesn't 
MD>  exist, for which I'm thankful.  

     That is because there are none.  What there are are threads 
with fundies refusing to prove their claim that a god exists.

But if the argument is 
MD>  merely that God did not do what God claimed he did, in the 
MD>  Bible, then what good is God.  Who would want to waste time 
MD>  worshipping a liar? Not me, I have better things to do.

     God did not write the bible.  Whatever god you are talking 
about made no such claim nor is the there any claim in the bible 
to it being the word of god.  Sorry, you made that up.

MD>  If the argument underlying all this is that God doesn't 
MD>  exist, then I'm outta here, cause Proverbs says "The fool 
MD>  hath said in his heart there is no God", and I ain't got 
MD>  time to waste talking to fools.

     And you do not have the ability to prove a god exists so you 
will declare victory and run away.

     After all he did not know what was happening in Sodom and

Dear Col. Holmes,

a case where he really couldn't, and stating that I couldn't do the
ROTC after all and would he please draft me as soon as possible.

...

        And that is where I am now, writing to you because you have
been good to me and have a right to know what I think and feel. I am
writing too in the hope that my telling this one story will help you
to understand more clearly how so many fine people have come to find
themselves still loving their country but loathing the military, to
                                          ~~~~~~~~
which you and other good men have devoted years, lifetimes, of the
best service you could give. To many of us, it is no longer clear what
is service and what is disservice, or if it is clear, the conclusion
is likely to be illegal.

         Forgive the length of this letter. There was much to say.
There is still a lot to be said, but it can wait. Please say hello to
Col. Jones for me.

                            Merry Christmas.

                              Sincerely,

                              Bill Clinton


     If you want the complete letter you will see he is clearly 
explaining why his is backing out of his ROTC agreement and 
includes himself in the loathing category.

LT> MS>   and who won't permit the men charged with the leadership 
LT> MS>  of our military to wear their uniforms when on business at 
LT> MS>  the Whitehouse

LT>    I believe that is a myth.

     You are correct.  That was true but it is no longer true.  
The latest is that he ordered the uniformed people who had been 
invited to a White House reception to serve the hor d'vours.

     They can try but they are much more likely to die for it 
than I am to be harmed.  

     Secondly, if a person has a gripe with another about 
contracting the disease the person to take it out on is the 
person who gave it to them.  

JS>   You are only showing yourself to be the cold hearted, son

JG>          I can say with a degree of certainty that I have

JG>          than most folks.  I have heavily investigated the 
JG>          effects, symptoms, and treatment of every type of 
JG>          chemical & biological agent in use today (the 
JG>          unclassified varieties anyway) by the US military, 
JG>          and we use them all, and have taught classes on

JG>          automatic weapons and other sources of combustion 
JG>          (i.e.  booby traps, flares, etc...), and have never, 
JG>          repeat NEVER, under any circumstances experienced 
JG>          or heard reports of the gas erupting into a fire 
JG>          comparable to that which occurred at Waco.

     It is good to have an expert here.  There have been reports 
that CS should not be used in wooden structures.  Can you confirm 
or deny?  

     As CS is a solid what it the dispersal method?  The 
government has variously reported acetone and carbon monoxide.

     Finally, have you ever used it with fire in a closed 
environment?  Here I am referring to the known use of kerosene 
lamps at Waco.

JG>          While a chemical grenade creates a high degree of 
JG>          temperature to release the CS/CN gas, the 
JG>          deployment method used by the (perhaps inept) BATF 
JG>          would not have done so.  The BATF boobs deployed 
JG>          the gas through a tube (much like the barrel of a 
JG>          tank) in effect PUMPING the gas into the BD 
JG>          stronghold.  By the time the gases escaped the 
JG>          barrel of this vehicle there would not have been 
JG>          enough heat to ignite flash paper.

     Two days after the first the FBI (which was in charge not 
the BATF) reported the additional use of some 300 "ferret" 
grenades to insert the gas into the second floor.  Are you 
familiar with these?

     And again you call it a gas but it is a solid.  What is the 
dispersal method?
     
JG>          As for exposure to carbon-monoxide, HCL, cyanide, 
JG>          etc..., the effects of the CS/CN gasses deteriorate 
JG>          within minutes of removing the "victim" from 
JG>          exposure.  I will condesend here for a minute: If a 
JG>          victim is exposed to CS gas for a sufficient length 
JG>          of time (VERY lengthy) without removal from the 
JG>          source, the victim MAY experience respiratory 
JG>          failure.  

     They were exposed for six hours.  Is that long enough?

CS gas causes an involuntary constriction 
JG>          of the bronchial passages making breathing SEEM 
JG>          impossible to the victim, often times resulting in 
JG>          the victim PSYCHOLOGICALLY being unable to breath.  
JG>          Additionally, CS causes a burning sensation of all 
JG>          exposed skin areas to include the eyes and mucous 
JG>          membranes, some exposees may experience nausea, 
JG>          moisture acts as a catalyst in its activity as does 
JG>          body heat.  Some persons are COMPLETELY IMMUNE to 
JG>          the effects of CS & CN, and tolerance to these 
JG>          agents CAN be built up with repeated exposure.  
JG>          Once removed from the gas ALL SYMPTOMS WILL 
JG>          DIMINISH within a few minutes.

     What is the relevance of this?

JG>          This is NOT Agent Orange or Nerve Gas folks.  This 
JG>          is a form of tear gas basically, with a little more 
JG>          potent punch.  The only persons in any serious 
JG>          danger of exposure to these chemical agents would 
JG>          be those with serious lung conditions.

     There are other reports of much more serious effects on 
children such as the induction of chemical pneumonia.  Can you 
comment?

JG>          Something else was in the works there.  What that 
JG>          was we may never know.  But it was not fires caused 
JG>          by CS/CN gas.
     
     That was not the claim in the first place.  Rather that the 
propellant acetone (if that is a correct claim by the government) 
was the cause of the fire.  There is also the suggestion that the 
grenades were the cause of the fire.  The burn by-product of 
cyanide as a cause of death is also being suggested.

Subject: Bible Lies?                            

TH>  Not much evidence that life evolved either.  

     There is every evidence life evolved.  That is why creation 
was discarded as an explanation almost a century before Darwin.  
The only question at hand is Darwin's explanation.

Like you said, 
TH>  you weren't there.  So that leaves you in a void, doesn't 
TH>  it? 

     Not at all.  The evidence is called fossils.  The older the 
fossil the more different.  It is trivial to observe life 
changed.  The only issue was how.

TH>  Not really knowing where life came from.  Pretty sad.  

     That has noting to do with evolution as you know.

TH>  Ignorance I mean.  Seeing as how you DON'T know, how can you 
TH>  say there is no God who created life? 

     I have never said that.  I have said there is no evidence 
for the existence of any god nor does separate research suggest 
there is a need to invoke a god to explain anything.
     
If ya don't know, ya 
TH>  can't say he's not real.  

     Again, I never said that.  I merely say, no evidence.

THat would be unscientific now 
TH>  wouldn't it? Refuting something you can't prove or 
TH>  disprove.  

     You should learn not to misrepresent my position.

Before you go quoting scientific principles, try 
TH>  to abide by them yerself.  As far as proof, the Bible 
TH>  provides a good documentation on the issue, through the 
TH>  years.  
     
     Cite the documentation if you can find the time.  

Stuff that is confirmed by discoveries, whereas yer 
TH>  evolutionary crap is simply an INTERPRETATION of a lot of 
TH>  bones.  

     Then you have no comprehension of the subject of evolution.  
Remember, some ignorant tribesmen who were into genocide were 
telling stories around the camp fire and came up with this over 
who knows how many years.  

     READ Genesis 1 and 2 for a change.  There is no observer.  
The story is revealed to no one.  If it started with some holy man 
having a vision and the Lord telling him what he did that would 
be different as would the view of the teller of the story.  There 
is no "teller" of the story, there is no viewer.  It is nothing 
but a story.

Going by the "scientific" way, more evidence would 
TH>  seem to be in favor of creationism, making it much more 
TH>  probable than evolution.

     Then you have no idea what you are talking about and are 
completely ignorant of science.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

     I hate to do this and I am not taking sides.  I do not 
follow sports, period.  I thought OJ was a basketball player 
until this started.

     However, the defense in its motion passed over one serious 
point and made not one thing of it in summation that I think is 
extremely interesting.

     To wit.  He started off making the point that in one hour OJ 
is presumed to have disposed of blood soaked clothes and shoes so 
effectively that they have not been found in less than one hour 
and there he dropped it.

     Let us take this one step further.  He disposed of all of 
his clothes and did NOT dispose of one glove.  Further he parked 
on the street just to increase the opportunity for people see him 
go onto his property stark naked save for wearing one glove.  

     I have no opinion one way or the other in this matter. 

     I am posting this only to suggest one of the things the 
defense may have up its sleeve.

     (For anyone unfamiliar with this type of hearing if the 
defense had proven his innocence beyond a shadow of a doubt it 
would not have been relevant to the hearing.  That is the way it 
is.)

            Is Your Religion Government Approved?
                             by
                         Matt Giwer (c) 1994 <7/9>

     Leaders of the Black Muslim religion attack Jews and not one
politician says a word against these politically valuable, voting
bigots.
     Black politicians, notably one time Presidential candidate
Jesse Jackson, campaign from the pulpits of churches and these
registered voters are not criticized.
     Those who believe because of their religion that accepting
homosexuality is sinful are attacked by the Surgeon General and
a list of politicians that is growing daily.  But they are voters
to.  Therefore the difference must be elsewhere.
     The wording of the attack is where the answer lies.  The
attack is upon the religious right.  It is nothing more and
nothing less than an attack based upon politics.
     Clearly a form of religious conviction is being singled out
for attack because they oppose the political agenda of their
attackers.  And of course the political attack is being conducted
by liberal Democrats.  Thus we have every evidence of the
beginnings of another pogrom it has not gone very far yet but it
includes both party members in the Executive and Legislative
Branches of the government.  It is obviously an orchestrated
attack.
     Lets take another example.  We protect the right of the oil
industry to form an organization and lobby Congress.  In the
words of the 1st amendment these protected rights are those of
the freedom of assembly and the right to petition the government.
     In the case of these attacks we are dealing with another
freedom in the same amendment that of religion which includes the
right to believe anything they want to believe and act
accordingly save for a compelling government interest against
such actions.
     Here we have liberals with their liberal political agenda
who have chosen to single out fundamentalist Christians for
acting according to their religious beliefs.  And what is their
political crime?  Opposing the liberal political agenda because
of their religious beliefs.
     The same people who can not find a reason to object to
blatant anti-semitic bigotry can find reason to attack those
another religion themselves.  It is easy to see why they do not
object to religious bigotry, they are attempting to incite it
themselves.  They are trying to stir up the body politic to
prevent these people from exercising rights that are protected by
the 1st amendment.
     How far can it go?  That depends upon how successful these
attacks are.  It depends upon how many more administration
officials join in on the attack.  How many more liberals will
join this attack is not known.  That they all started within two
weeks of each other it is certainly a coordinated attack.  Some
one is organizing it.
     Who that might be it not apparent.  It could be President
Clinton as his administration is part of it and he has done nothing
to change the impression he approves of it.  I do not wish to
stir up Clinton defenders here but he has not distanced himself
in anyway from Elders' attack which had nothing to do with her
job as Surgeon General and was a purely political attack.
     As there is no "liberal" caucus then as far as we can go is
identify it is being coordinated by someone high up in the
Democratic party.  Who that might be is speculation but as Elders
is part of it and she reports to Clinton that again leads to him
as the coordinator.
     That means we can expect these attacks to increase and to
become as vicious and to grow as quickly as possible keeping in
the mind the possibility of a public backlash.
     I can not see why, after all of these years of working to
erase religious intolerance, liberals are now working to create
it again.  It appears antithetical to everything they have worked
for the decades to now revert to such crude bigotry.  It almost
makes one think they were hypocrites all along.

JG>  MG> It is good to have an expert here.  There have been reports
JG>  MG> that CS should not be used in wooden structures.  Can you confirm
JG>  MG> or deny?

JG>      well, First off, please do not call me an expert.  The real
JG>      experts on CB warfare have been to extensive schooling on the
JG>      subject.  Most of them have forgotten more about the subject than
JG>      I ever could care to learn.  I have just read more than the
JG>      'average bear' on the subject due to professional necessity /
JG>      curiosity, and have some pretty good first hand experience with
JG>      it.

JG>      CS, in its activated state is a gas/vapor.  However, depending
JG>      upon the deployment technique, readily combustible materials in
JG>      the target area should be considered.  See below...

w-chloroacetophenone but less incapacitating.  Caution: Potent

                      *** End of Text ***

Note: w-chloroacetophenone is CN tear gas.

Note: Because of limitations of the characters that are available 
to me, the above does not match what is in the Merck Index 
exactly.  In some instances I have tried to use upper Ascii 
characters which may or may not be compatible with use on a BBS.  
In other cases I tried the best I could. The molecule structure 
above is (I am told) a benzene molecule structure. It does not 
match what is in the Merck Index exactly, but is as close as I 
could come.  For those of you that didn't take chemistry who 
cares right.

NOW NOTE THE REASON I POSTED THIS:

The active ingredient in CS tear gas is a SOLID.  It must be 
mixed with some type of solvent to be used.  Note the solvents 
that CS is soluble in.  Water is only a marginal solvent as CS is 
only "Sparingly soluble" in water.  Of the other chemicals 
listed, only methylene chloride is not flammable.  Acetone and 
Benzene are listed as "highly flammable" in the Merck Index.  
Dioxane and Ethyl Acetate is listed as "flammable".

The L.D. = Lethal Dose; LD50 is a dose which is lethal to 50% of 
the animals tested (sorry PETA fans).

Acetone               LD50 = 10.7ml/Kg orally in rats. Dioxane 
LD50 = 5.7 mg/Kg (5.2 orally) in mice/rats Benzene               
LD50 = 3.8 ml/Kg  Acute toxicity in humans Ethyl Acetate         
LD50 = 11.3ml/Kg orally in rats Methylene Chloride    LD50 = 
1.6ml/Kg  Human toxicity: Narcotic in High concentrations.

Note that it takes less Methylene Chloride to kill rats than the 
other chemicals.

What is my point?  I think that someone should investigate how 
"non-flammable" the CS gas that was use on Mt. Carmel was.  They 
were using military equipment to dispense this gas.  How is the 
military CS gas formulated?  If the FBI used CS gas with say 
Acetone, could that be the excellerant that fed the fire at Mt. 
Carmel?  Remember, they used a lot of gas in a lot of places over 
an period of hours.

========================================================================

JG>  MG>  As CS is a solid what it the dispersal method?  The 
JG>  MG>  government has variously reported acetone and carbon 
JG>  MG>  monoxide.

JG>       CS/CN can be dispersed by a number of means ranging 
JG>       from sprayers mounted on aircraft to grenades and 
JG>       mortars.  Basically they boil down to either a 
JG>       bursting or burning munitions.  The bursting variety 
JG>       uses impact with an object, or a small 
JG>       detonator(squib) to break the seal of the projectile 
JG>       and spray the chemical contents in liquified form 
JG>       around the area where the agent will turn to vapor.
JG> 
JG>       The burning variety works one of two ways:
JG> 
JG>       1) combustion gases within the cannister force the 
JG>       agent through outlet nozzles in the cannister into the 
JG>       atmosphere as small particles or vapor.
JG> 
JG>       2) a burning mixture inside the cannister vaporizes 
JG>       the chemical and on contact with air the agent 
JG>       condenses.  I pulled out all of the info I have 
JG>       available from the various Fleet Marine Force Manuals 
JG>       and found no mention of either one.  The only other 
JG>       substance mentioned was to dispersing agents from a 
JG>       chloroform mixture.  The only agent I could find that 
JG>       directly referenced this was CNC which is another of 
JG>       the Riot Control agents but I'm not aware that it was 
JG>       used at Mt.  Carmel.

JG>  MG>  Finally, have you ever used it with fire in a closed 
JG>  MG>  environment?  Here I am referring to the known use of 
JG>  MG>  kerosene lamps at Waco.

JG>      no, burning the training areas is too expensive I guess .

JG>  MG> And again you call it a gas but it is a solid.  What is the
JG>  MG> dispersal method?

JG>      in its inactive state it is usually stored as a solid for
JG>      ease of handling and safety reasons.

     Then how is it activated?

JG>  MG> They were exposed for six hours.  Is that long enough?

JG>       ok, I'm confused here.  Didn't the compound erupt into 
JG>       a huge fire rather quickly?  

     No.  The gassing started at 6am and the fire did not start 
until about six hours later.

Once again, referring to 
JG>       what I gleened from the news here.  If not though, it 
JG>       would have taken a nearly continuous assault of the 
JG>       compound with the "ferret" grenades to keep the 
JG>       concentration of the gas up.  CS condenses out of the 
JG>       air rather rapidly.  Usually within about ten minutes 
JG>       or so depending on meteorological conditions.  Higher 
JG>       ambient temperatures and lower humidity will delay its 
JG>       condensing to a degree.

     From trial testimony the plan was to use the pumped "gas" to 
keep people out of the hallways and the grenades to get the 
people in the rooms.  

JG>  JG>          Something else was in the works there.  What that
JG>  JG>          was we may never know.  But it was not fires caused
JG>  JG>          by CS/CN gas.

JG>  MG>  That was not the claim in the first place.  Rather that the 
JG>  MG>  propellant acetone (if that is a correct claim by the 
JG>  MG>  government) was the cause of the fire.  There is also the 
JG>  MG>  suggestion that the grenades were the cause of the fire.  
JG>  MG>  The burn by-product of cyanide as a cause of death is also 
JG>  MG>  being suggested.

JG>       ok, probably got off subject a little in my tirade 
JG>       .  Still looking for references to acetone and 
JG>       cyanide.  Will keep you abreast of any info I come 
JG>       across.  As fer the grenades, if that was the method 
JG>       of deployment, 300 of them definitely could have 
JG>       started a fire.  Another note: *300* 40mm CS grenades 
JG>       would, in my ameteur estimation, produce enough CS 
JG>       vapor to effectively push out all the oxygen in a 
JG>       building the size of the Mt.  Carmel compound.  And 
JG>       that would indeed create some breathing problems.
JG> 
JG>       I hope this answered your queries satisfactorily.  If 
JG>       not I'm sure I'll hear from ya again.  Take care, and 
JG>       keep writin'!
     
     Thank you very much.

JW>  This is fair warning that ALL holocoust DISBELIEVERS are to

JW>  possesed with to ANY OTHER echo but DO NOT continue to 
JW>  debate the holocaust occurence in WORLDTLK.  If you

     Sir, not to continue it but there has NEVER, EVER been a 
debate as to the occurrence of the holocaust.  Not once as in 
NEVER EVER.  I have so stipulated in dozens of messages.  The 
only discussion has been as to the existence of gas chambers.  
You know that and you will not acknowledge that.

     What do you call a person who makes a claim contrary to 
fact while knowingly doing so?  You do not like that name so you 
have told me. 

     You are making yourself a classic example of those I have 
identified.   

     You are not a moderator, you are a paristan and the only way 
you can silence questioning is to prohibit disbelieve.  You are 
no better than a Nazi.  
     
     I do remark that you have proved my claim that few can 
separate a challenge to gas chambers from the holocaust which did 
occur.
     
     What in the hell are you talking about?  

     NO ONE in this conference EVER denied the Holocaust occurred 
EVER.  

     Everything I have said it true.  I will also take the 
liberty of cross posting this response all over the world.  You 
will of course ban me for telling the truth.  That also I will 
crosspost to the world.

    KPOC-TV in Ponca City, Oklahoma, has been doing some investigative
    reporting on the Davidian murders in Waco.  They've turned up some
    VERY interesting things -- there were army choppers from Ft. Hood
    brought in for the initial assault (an illegal police action) and
    one of the pilots admitted that the government fired first.  They
    have videotape of ONE bullet hole in a single BATF vehicle, which
    shows that the Davidians may not have fired much at all, much less
    the "hail of gunfire" which the BATF claimed.  The front doors to
    the compound are missing, and they'd show which direction the
    bullets were flying.  The company that produced the CS gas told the
    government not to use it in a certain manner or it would produce
    cyanide gas.  During the cleanup, several people were treated for
    cyanide poisoning.  The infrared tape of the compound has the
    time/date numbers blurred or altered, and 4.5 minutes are missing
    from right at the start of the fire.  That footage would show who
    started the fire.  Finally, there were NO illegal weapons found
    that belonged to the Davidians.  The illegal arms were PLANTED
    there by the BATF (which they admitted).

    There is more, but just that evidence should be enough to bring
    up Janet Reno, Bob Riggs and the BATF people on charges of first
    degree murder.

    The latest news:  KPOC-TV has been receiving "interesting" (and
    anonymous) communications suggesting that further investigation
    might be unwise.  They have apparently posted armed guards.  When
    they finish their investigation and get the tape footage together,
    their program is supposed to air on some 160 TV stations.

    What a wonderful government.  So much for freedom of religion and
    freedom of the press, not to mention balance of power.

ANOTHER COURT DECLARES BRADY ACT UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Deciding in favor of Arizona sheriff, court declares Brady "void 
for vagueness"

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Siding with law enforcement officials and the 
National Rifle Association of America, U.S. District Judge John 
M. Roll of Arizona declared yesterday that so-called mandatory 
background checks under the Brady Act are unconstitutional.   It 
was the third court victory for chief law enforcement officers in 
suits backed by NRA.  

"This is the first suit in which the Act was found void for 
vagueness,'"  said Mrs. Tanya K. Metaksa, Executive Director of 
NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.  "The Court also rejected 
the government's claim that Brady imposes no criminal penalties  
on law enforcement.  It is gratifying that federal judges concur 
in arguments NRA made against the Act when it was in bill form.  

"These same arguments apply to the so-called Brady II' -- a gun 
ban and restrictive licensing scheme modeled after New York City.  
Now these arguments cannot be ignored."

Mrs. Metaksa noted that, while individual sheriffs were 
challenging Brady in court, the National Sheriffs' Association 
decided, by resolution June 15, to strongly oppose Brady II.'"  

Key issues resolved by the court:

- Despite what the Justice Department argued, the Brady Act 
threatened law enforcement with criminal sanctions.  The Court 
found that the U.S. Government's protestations to the contrary 
"fall on all fronts."

- The states are not agencies of the federal government and chief 
law enforcement officers are not federal agents.   The court held 
that the Brady Act violated the Tenth Amendment and found the 
U.S. Government's arguments "disingenuous" and "not merit[ing] 
further comment." 

- Criminal statutes must clearly define what is forbidden; Brady 
did not.  The plaintiff, Sheriff Richard Mack of  Graham County, 
Arizona, was obliged under the Act to perform a "reasonable 
effort" background check.  The Court held that requirement void 
under the Fifth Amendment's due process clause.

"The real tragedy continues -- namely, that the federal 
government continues to commandeer local law enforcement to 
implement a political agenda rather than empowering law 
enforcement to attack criminals directly," said Mrs. Metaksa.   
"Tonight, Sheriff  Mack will patrol his vast jurisdiction, arrest 
criminals, crack tough cases and respond to calls for assistance.  
In short, he will heed the people he serves, not politicians and 
bureaucrats thousands of miles away."

Mrs. Metaksa congratulated Sheriff Mack for having the courage to 
take on the federal leviathan and win.

The phrasing of Judge Roll's decision suggests that an injunction 
against enforcement of the Act applies nationwide.  Thus, it 
appears likely that government enforcement of the applicable 
portions of the Brady Act anywhere in the United States -- and 
certainly in the District of Arizona -- is forbidden.

     This is going to be off topic in many conferences but I have 
not heard of a problem like this before.

     I was getting around to cleaning up all the unused stuff on 
the HD and was using DDEL, like DELTREE, to clean up all those 
great promise programs that delivered crippled nothing.

     From the best post mortem I could do it appears a 
subdirectory became linked with the main directory in some manner 
perhaps as is done in SHARE, I have no idea.  However, by the 
time I caught it, it had trashed so much of main and all of its 
sub-directories that reformatting was easier than trying to 
replace the missing files. 

     I have never heard of this before and it is obviously a 
serious problem.  

     (BTW:  I need replacements of any public keys that might 
have been sent me and the numbers for ABJECT POVERTY and 
T-RECALL.  Sloppy use of tape backup is as bad as not using it at 
all.)

     Yes but I am not suggesting it was poisoning in the manner 
you are calculating it.  I came across the information, and I am 
going to have to re-read it refresh my memory that long exposure 
in children, the elderly and those with certain lung problems it 
induces chemical pneumonia.  Their lungs will start filling with 
fluid and that it is life threatening.

     That is an entirely different mechanism.

JG>  MG> Note that it takes less Methylene Chloride to kill rats than the

JG>  MG> What is my point?  I think that someone should investigate how
JG>  MG> "non-flammable" the CS gas that was use on Mt. Carmel was.  They

JG>  good point, could be a "lesson learned" for future operations

     I would have thought, given your description of the grenades 
themselves themselves (weight and range,) that they should 
consider using them even if filled with water.  Sounds very 
likely to be deadly in that manner.

JG>  I think if either Acetone or Benzene were to build up to a high

JG>  enough to blow out _all_ the windows and most of the the exterior
JG>  walls of the compoud.  To my recollection, "highly flammable" is a
JG>  mild term regarding these two.

     Well taken.

JG>  MG> From trial testimony the plan was to use the pumped "gas" to
JG>  MG> keep people out of the hallways and the grenades to get the
JG>  MG> people in the rooms.

JG>      curious to find out how extensive the pumping was.

     I have seen the jury rigged CEVs on tape.  I am not certain 
just what I was seeing but it was a vee shape with the wide ends 
mounted and the tip of the vee inserted.  The arms appeared to be 
about thick.  They appeared to be round.

JG>  MG> Thank you very much.

JG>      you're quite welcome!  I'm still trying to dig up info on the
JG>      collateral chemicals used as solvents in our munitions.  I'm
JG>      hoping that the training dept. at work can give me some info.

     That will be appreciated.  I really can't imagine it is 
classified information unless the Army has much different 
criteria than the Navy did.

JG>      I know I hit all the lesser points, hope I managed to cover the

     I am keeping the message.

     Got it.

Washington Times, June 28, 1994 page A8, "SERVICE WARFARE"
  "One of the four White House military aides who, while in uniform were
forced last Tuesday night to carry hors d'oeuvre trays about the White
House offering food to guests of President Clinton and Hillary Rodham
Clinton yesterday paid visits to the Capitol Hill offices of Rep. Dan
Burton, Indiana Republican, and Newt Gingrich, Georgia Republican.
   The four officers drafted as waiters, Mr. Burton learned in the
meeting were a Marine officer who serves on the personal staff of Marine
Corp Commandant Carl Mundy, an Air Force captain who has worked in the
space programs, a Navy lieutenant who is a surface-warfare officer, and
a lieutenant who is a naval intelligence officer.
  The officer described the scenario as personally degrading and told
the congressman that he and fellow officers were ordered by a worried
White House staff not to common on the incident.
   "Once again, the White House had tried to put a lid on things," Mr.
Burton commented later.  "Sooner or later, they are going to have more
pots than they have lids."
   "Mr. Burton said, "The entire U.S. military deserves a public
apology."
   Meanwhile, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Randy
"Duke" Cunningham, California Republican, has sent a letter to Mr.
Clinton saying that "as a retired Navy fighter pilot and an American who
considers it a privilege to have served my country in combat, I consider
the lack of respect shown to these military officers personally
deplorable...Military personnel in the White House are not domestics."

     In fact that explains why they have pull out straws in their

Subject: Flood / Noah's Ark                     

JG>  EH> According to the show, the water came form the canopy above the
JG>  EH> Earth and from within the Earth, as per above...
JG>  EH> Ed

JG>      You've got my interest peaked.  What was the name of this show
JG>      again?  I'd like to take a peep at it if possible.  Is the canopy
JG>      referred to above different from the water contained within the
JG>      atmosphere?

     How would they know?  They made it up.  

     If there was water above the earth's atmosphere then it was 
in orbit.  There is only one stable orbit for that is it would be 
rings like Saturn and even thinner.  We can see Saturn's rings
when they are edge on to us as they are too thin.  From this you 
can not get six miles worth of water.

JG>      What is the theory concerning how the water contained within the
JG>      Earth was expelled from it.  I'm just speculating here, but the
JG>      logical means to accomplish this would seem to be a significant
JG>      heating of the interior of the Earth itself.  And in doing so,
JG>      wouldn't this significantly lessen the ability to
JG>      condense/precipitate moisture from the atmosphere/canopy?

     Beyond the amazing coincidence they will never answer where 
it went.

JG>      You'll have to excuse me, I'm one of the godless heathens so I
JG>      don't buy into miracles, especially when they appear to violate
JG>      the known laws of physics.  I have been interested in the topic
JG>      of The Flood for some time now, though.

     The Noah's Ark story requires the highest miracle density of 
any story in the Bible.

Subject: New problem                            

JG>      We'll probably both be shot for being off topic on this one.
JG>      Sorry Mr. Mod. But I'll keep it short and sweet.

JG>      I've had this problem once when I was stationed in Japan.  Lost
JG>      about 15,000 lines of program source code (a really bad day!).
JG>      Lemme guess, are you using an IDE HD?  That's the only common
JG>      link I've found with this happening.  IDE does some weird
JG>      (technical term) stuff with the hard drive to get more space out
JG>      of it.  There is no fix for it, only prevention.  Regularly run
JG>      CHKDSK /f or SCANDISK on your drive to clean up the lost cluster
JG>      chains and let the HD do some house cleaning.
JG>      Then back everything up to tape, march down to the PC store of
JG>      your choice and buy a SCSI HD & Controller.  More expensive, but
JG>      worth it in speed and grey hair.

     It is an IDE but it was not something the IDE did 
deliberately as the cross-linked directory was a sub-sub that I 
had created.  It was not one created by the drive.  But at least 
it is an IDE so we have that much.

RH> MG>     But more than ten guns, 9+ more than could possibly used at
RH> MG>one time are going to be real soon.

RH> That's not true, Matt. HR3932 calls for 20 or more guns, or more than
RH> 1000 rounds of ammunition to require an arsenal license. Never mind that
RH> the 1000 rounds is merely 2 bricks of .22 ammo. Never mind that most

RH> that to effectively participate in thier sports. Your claim of only
RH> needing one gun (at a time) needs a great deal of justification. 

     You are not reading.  I said using not needing.  

     The entire scare tactic behind the arsenal law is to presume 
a person with a million rifles is more dangerous than a person 
with one rifle.  

     I have already predicted that no one in any public debate 
will raise that issue.
