Prophecy is a Tricky Business

Picture from ~ ~
Titan emerges from behind Saturn while Tethys streaks into view in this colorful scene on March 24, 2008. Titan is 5,150 kilometers (3,200 miles) wide; Tethys is 1,071 kilometers (665 miles) wide. Saturn's shadow darkens the far arm of the rings near the planet's limb.

Evening purrs, weekend wily and whimsical Big Cats... rain showers took over the tame prairie for a time yesterday and today... yowls, the greening is out of control! Never has the Kougaress seen the soil so water-saturated. Several years ago, the ground cracked often from the drought condition.

Prophecy is a tricky business... yep, prophecy is one of those businesses you really don’t want to be in... in some eras of time it could have gotten you killed. One missed prophecy and say goodbye to your head or your innards.
There are different views about prophecy, however. Some follow the strict policy that if a prophecy fails to come true, then the prophet is no longer to be considered a prophet. While on the other paw, some believe it is a prophet’s job to forewarn of a disaster that can be altered or lessened.
Of course, if this occurs the prophet who may have saved a lot of folks’ lives could be seen as a failure, instead of a heroine/hero.
In this day and age with so many in the western world being trained to use only the left side of their brains, it’s difficult to discern a true prophetic warning from a false or intentionally misleading prediction.
What brought this all about? Well, with the recent appearance of George Washington in the Kougaress’s thoughts due to romance author, Karen Kay, plus good ole George being one his Big Cat’s favorite founders, the president’s three prophecies came to mind again. It’s been long while since moi has read them. So, she search-engined and found *George Washington's vision is recorded at the Library of Congress* at Crystalinks. You can check out his visions. However, here’s what really smacked this Big Cat between the eyes ~

In his farewell address, Washington spoke of several avenues of tyranny, including selfish ambition (with pretended patriotism,) collusion of powers, usurpation and precedence of usurpation, debt, foreign influence, and rank party politics.

As for collusion of powers, he warned, "The habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism."

On usurpation, he warned, "If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield."

George Washington's last words allegedly were Tis well.



Giant Blizzard Raging on Saturn

A massive blizzard is raging on Saturn — a storm so large and fierce NASA astronomers and amateur skywatchers can see it from Earth.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn has a front row seat to the otherworldly tempest and is recording the most detailed data yet of storms on the ringed planet. But amateur astronomers back on Earth have also managed to chip in on the Saturn blizzard stormwatch.

"We were so excited to get a heads-up from the amateurs," said Cassini scientist Gordon Bjoraker, a composite infrared spectrometer team member based at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

The data showed a large, turbulent storm, dredging up a lot of material from the deep atmosphere and covering an area at least five times larger than the biggest blizzard that hit Earth so far this year — the "Snowmageddon" storm that blanketed the Washington, D.C. area in snow in February.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 489 ~

Sylva kept blinking to refocus her gaze. “What?” Zeke looked her over. “You okay, darlin’?” Settling back a bit on the stool, she nodded. “Yes, what type of flight craft?” Her curiosity could have rivaled any cat she’d ever known. “I’ve only seen drawings and an explanation of its capabilities. It’s a one-man jet by design, but also hovers. Though, the real sticky problem is that it’s flown by the movement of the pilot’s eyes, exclusively. None of our top pilots have the concentration to fly by eyesight alone. They’ve been trying to design it to use another guidance system.”

Zeke watched his woman’s lush lips form into an O. “Oh. Wow. That is truly amazing, for lack of a better word.” Her brow furrowed in thought. “What if the Secret Circle is designing their own version?” Zeke felt a zing coil and spring like a rattlesnake in the pit of his belly. “How would the magickal ones fit in?” he asked. She shook her head. “I don’t know...unless there’s some type of intuition that guides the plane other than just using eye movement. But, still, that doesn’t exactly make sense if a pilot can’t be trained to that degree.”

Serena, they are... but, of course, really traveling in space would definitely have its major trouble spots.
