fourth reich architecture part 2

The swastika building on the Navy’s amphibious base at Coronado, California will remain untouched even after complaints from U.S. Rep. Susan Davis (D-San Diego). Instead, The Navy is going to mask it with camouflage, landscaping and rooftop photovoltaic cells.

The architect of the building, John Mock, told a KFMB-TV reporter last year that he knew what the overhead perspective looked like at the time, but he still didn’t believe that the unconnected buildings, built in 1967, constituted a true swastika.

The swastika building was apparently designed so it could not be viewed from the ground or from inside nearby buildings. There are NO civilian or military landing patterns that provide such a view to airline passengers.

After all the mainstream media hoopla over the building, the stark truth is the building will remain on a base where Navy Seals train.

If you place the swastika building to “north” it aligns virtually perfect with the Nazi Flag

Pope Porn

Before he was Pope Pius II, Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini was a poet, scholar, diplomat, and
rakehell. And an author. In fact, he wrote a bestseller. People in fifteenth-century Europe couldn't get enough of his Latin novella Historia de duobus amantibus. An article in a scholarly
publication on literature claims that Historia "was undoubtedly one of the most read stories of
the whole Renaissance." The Oxford edition gives a Cliff Notes version of the storyline: "The
Goodli History tells of the illicit love of Euralius, a high official in the retinue of the German
Emperor Sigismund, and Lucres, a married lady from Siena Italy."

It was probably written in 1444, but the earliest known printing is from Antwerp in 1488. By the turn of the century, 37 editions had been published. Somewhere around 1553, the short book appeared in English under the wonderfully old-school title The Goodli History of the Moste Noble and Beautyfull Ladye Lucres of Scene in Tuskane, and of Her Louer Eurialus Verye Pleasaunt and Delectable vnto ye Reder. Despite the obvious historical interest of this archaic
Vatican porn, it has never been translated into contemporary language.

At one point, Euralius scales a wall to be with Lucres:

"When she saw her lover, she clasped him in her arms. There was
embracing and kissing, and with full sail they followed their lusts and
wearied Venus, now with Ceres, and now with Bacchus was

His Holiness describes the next time they hook up:

Thus talking to each other, they went into the bedroom, where they had such a night as we
judge the two lovers Paris and Helen had after he had taken her away, and it was so
pleasant that they thought Mars and Venus had never known such pleasure....
Her mouth, and now her eyes, and now her cheeks he kissed. Pulling down her clothes, he
saw such beauty as he had never seen before. "I have found more, I believe," said Euralius,
"than Acteon saw of Diana when she bathed in the fountain. What is more pleasant or
more fair than these limbs?... O fair neck and pleasant breasts, is it you that I touch? Is it
you that I have? Are you in my hands? O round limbs, O sweet body, do I have you in my
arms?... O pleasant kisses, O dear embraces, O sweet bites, no man alive is happier than I
am, or more blessed."...
He strained, and she strained, and when they were done they weren't weary. Like Athens,
who rose from the ground stronger, soon after battle they were more desirous of war.

But Euralius isn't just a horndog. He waxes philosophical about love to Lucres' cousin-in-law:

You know that man is prone to love. Whether it is virtue or vice, it reigns everywhere. No
heart of flesh hasn't sometime felt the pricks of love. You know that neither the wise
Solomon nor the strong Sampson has escaped from this passion. Furthermore, the nature
of a kindled heart and a foolish love is this: The more it is allowed, the more it burns, with
nothing sooner healing this than the obtaining of the loved. There have been many, both in
our time and that of our elders, whose foolish love has been the cause of cruel death. And
many who, after sex and love vouchsafed, have stopped burning. Nothing is better when
love has crept into your bones than to give in to the burning, for those who strive against
the tempest often wreck, while those who drive with the storm escape.

Besides sex, the story also contains a lot of humor, as when Lucres' husband
borrows a horse from Euralius:
"He says to himself, 'If you leap upon my horse, I shall do the
same thing to your wife

CORONADO, Calif. — The Navy will spend as much as $600,000 to modify a 40-year-old barracks complex that resembles a swastika from the air, a gaffe that went largely unnoticed before satellite images became easily accessible on the Internet.

The Navy said officials noted the buildings’ shape after the groundbreaking in 1967 but decided against changing it at the time because it wasn’t obvious from the ground. Aerial photos made available on Google Earth in recent years have since revealed the buildings’ shape to a wide audience.

The Navy approved the money to change the walkways, landscaping and rooftop solar panels of the four L-shaped barracks, used by members of the Naval Construction Force at the Navy’s amphibious base at Coronado, near San Diego.

“We don’t want to be associated with something as symbolic and hateful as a swastika,” Scott Sutherland, deputy public affairs officer for Navy Region Southwest, told the Los Angeles Times.
Online commentators remarked widely about the buildings’ resemblance to the Nazi symbol.

Dave vonKleist, host of “The Power Hour,” a Missouri-based radio-talk show, said he wrote to military officials calling for action.

“I’m concerned about symbolism,” he said. “This is not the type of message America needs to be sending to the world.”

The Navy decided to alter the buildings’ shape following requests this year by Anti-Defamation League regional director Morris Casuto and U.S. Rep. Susan Davis.

“I don’t ascribe any intentionally evil motives to this,” Casuto said of the design. “It just happened. The Navy has been very good about recognizing the problem. The issue is over.
