The Moon's Feud With NASA

NASA came forward today, not to discuss their erroneous decision to lob a Centaur rocket at the moon on October 9, 2009---but to share their probe into ice on Saturn. In October, the mega ton missile blasted a hole in the lunar surface at twice the speed of a bullet in search of water. Now I don't know who else isn't paying attention, but their hare-brained idea to attack the moon has caused a weather calamity on earth. Within one week after their mission of "boring a hole in the moon looking for water," snow fell on New Jersey---and it wasn't even Halloween yet.

But the U.S. isn't the only obnoxious super power to challenge the ball of light in the nights sky, as Japan's Kaguya impacters collided with the moon in June 2009 seeking aqua. And Hello Kitty---the tit for tat for that crash---has impacted Toyota worldwide.

The evidence of NASA's nonsensical actions is record high snowfalls and floods in areas that don't normally experience snow, i.e. Texas. Thus far, for the U. S. 1,180 snowfall records have been broken across 49 of the 50 states. Even in Washington, D.C. where Mother Nature's offenders reside at NASA Headquarters, they've been pummeled with 54.9 inches this winter breaking their 1898 record.

Philadelphia admitted they haven't seen this much snow in 14 years at 65.5 inches in one winter. This season has surpassed that number by five inches----and it's still snowing here in NYC as I pen this.

The sideway falling snow on Thursday caused such havoc in New York City that a 42 year old-man was killed when walking through Central Park when a snow laden tree toppled onto him. Just strolling through the park is like the NY lottery of death, 'hey' you never know.' Throughout the city trees were bending, breaking and being uprooted by the maddening storm. In a city that's withstood Wall St., the westward angle of the rapidly falling-frozen-white-flakes---caused the Big Apple to buckle under the strain of yet another, snowy concrete landscape.

The heck with El Nino---it's more like the El' Ninny's at NASA for believing they can interfere with piercing the moon with a fuel soaked, school bus sized titanium rocket, and not expect her wrath and retribution for searching her private crevices for water. It is arrogant, egotistical and self-indulgent---and mostly unnecessary since we have an abundance of water here---that the earth has provided for free. Oh yes, but it needs care and cleaning-up after the centuries of corporate exploitation and industry abuse---so I guess it's more economical and easier to search for clean water on a planet suspended in space light miles away.

No matter how minor they claim the assault of the moon was---it is apparent the slightest interference in its surface has most certainly affected its role in regulating not only the oceans ebb and flow throughout the earth, but its precipitation; whether rain, snow, sleet or hail.

When will the "powers that be" realize that Mother Nature is fragile and wields more power than any nuclear weapon, any money printer at the Federal Reserve, any White House Presidential seat, or any Deregulation to the laws of the moon, the earth....and with one fell swoop she can cause a catastrophe in one fragment of a country called Haiti, send in waves to wash away people on a California beach, or bury us in 70 feet of snow. This extreme weather is a mere smack in the face since with one backhand, she can slap us into extinction, and will ultimately have the last word....you don't mess with Mother Nature.
