Constructive Paranoia
Part One - Apollyon     by RB Ham

I was watching, again, that glorified TV commercial - sponsored by nobody(ha!) - of George W
leading the chanting "USA! USA! USA!" as he stood over the smoking rubble that his policies may
well be responsible for. And it popped into my mind. The boy prince elevated to Kinghood - in such
an unseemly fashion. It spurred a dim memory of something spiritually dark. So, I broke out my trusty
Bible...turned to Revelations 9:11 and read...

"And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in
the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon."

I got this from the Encyclopaedia Mythica (a great site devoted to myths throughout the world):
"The destroyer". In the new testament of the Bible, Apollyon is called the angel of the
bottomless pit. Abaddon, a poetic name for the land of the dead in the old testament, is
Apollyon’s Greek translation from the Hebrew language. Apollyon, in early Christian
literature, is a name for the devil. He is identified as an angel of death, “hideous to behold,
with scales like a fish, wings like a dragon, bear’s feet, and a lion’s mouth.”

My attempt at Theologizin'

Scales of a fish: fish is the symbology of Christianity,

Wings like a dragon: His connection to the Esoteric, Hermetic and Masonic symbology
                                through his Skull and Bones ties to the 'illuminati'.

Bear's Feet: Bear market? Sure. The big, bad bears are out to make a killing in this destabilized
                      economy. a stretch? Anything better?

Lion's Mouth: Roaring for War. Full of sound and fury signifying nothing.

Interesting to note: Lionesses do all the hard work stalking, hunting and killing. Then the Lion comes in
and eats first and the lionesses have to wait their turn, hoping against hope that there will be enough to
feed both themselves and their babies. Male Lions routinely slay and eat male cubs as they are a threat
to the future stability of his Pride.

Interestingly, here is Revelations 9:12 - "One woe is past; [and], behold, there come two woes more hereafter."

They say bad shit happens in threes. And I'm guessing the bad shit that'll go down will be in places that
"Dubya" don't have a hankerin' California...and Canada. Should we up here in the Great
White North be worried about being snubbed during the Boy King's speech to Congress?
Anyone know where to buy gas masks?
