Honest Politician?

With my very jaundiced opinion of politicians, I always get a good laugh from jokes about them. After all, many of them are a joke…
So I got a good chuckle out of this one.

The politician was sitting at his campaign headquarters when the phone rang. He listened intently, and after a moment his face brightened.
When he hung up, he immediately phoned his mother to tell her the good news.
“Ma,” he shouted, “the results are in. I won the election!”
“Honestly?”
The politician’s smiled faded. “Aw, Ma, why bring that up at a time like this?”

Boffins crack beer goggles

Err, yeah, right. And we needed boffins to tell us what common sense already knows?? That too much drink affects our good judgment? Sheesh, these guys surely have something better to do.

“The beer goggles effect isn’t solely dependent on how much alcohol a person consumes, there are other influencing factors at play too,” said Professor Nathan Efron, Professor of Clinical Optometry at the University of Manchester. Amazingly, scientists now believe you don’t even need to have had an alcoholic drink to suffer from the beer goggles effect.

I beg to differ. My guess would be 99% booze, and 1% anything else…

[A quick edit. I was spell-checking this and the checker offered to replace ‘boffins’ with ‘buffoons’. LMAO! I think this program might be be more intelligent than the boffins, anyway..]

Skype & Trillian if you want to talk or IM.

It has been suggested a couple of times by a few of my readers that it might be a good idea to set up a way to chat from time to time, either by Instant Messaging or VoIP (Voice over the net). The one I use mainly at the moment is Skype , but if you use MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, or AIM (AOL) then you could still contact me using any of those. I run Trillian, which has the ability to connect to any of those programs.

You can search for me on the following usernames in each –

Skype: morrisao
ICQ uid: 56514590
Yahoo!: otemor
AIM: MorrisAO7

The ball’s in your court now, my friends. Only problem I can see is the time difference between countries.

One other thing – the setup in each is that a new contact needs to ask to be added, so you might need to add something that lets me know who you are if you use an unfamiliar user name.

Jihad in Small Town America: a Series

by Laura Mansfield.

Or it could be re-titled “Jihad in Small Town Anywhere” (including Australia, Britain, etc).

I actually ran across Laura’s article part 1 many months ago, and have tried to find it since. Today I ran across it again as a link from elsewhere and realised it was the one I’d been looking for. The reason I’d wanted to find it again was because her experience in the mosque perfectly illustrated how deceptive and untrustworthy their practises are when presenting their religion to the public and how differently it can be practised in the privacy of their own congregations. What Laura managed to do in the mosque was a perfect little mini-sting.

I’ve said it before: How can we trust a belief system which actually touts deception as being a good thing if it gets their system what it wants. Of course we know that this is practised in normal worldly life as a matter of course and is considered quite normal and even healthy practice, by some in the business world for instance. But in Islam it is encoded into their scriptures and hadiths.

For instance:
Bukhari:V7B67N427 “The Prophet said, ‘If I take an oath and later find something else better than that, then I do what is better and expiate my oath.’”
Bukhari:V5B59N369 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?’ Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslamah got up saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like me to kill him?’ The Prophet said, ‘Yes,’ Maslamah said, ‘Then allow me to say false things in order to deceive him.’ The Prophet said, ‘You may say such things.’”

That’s a small sample. God is Truth and NEVER changes. His promises are eternal.

Laura’s examples are a sample of what is happening not only in small town USA, but here in Australia and elsewhere in all western civilisations.

This the truth of what’s happening with the Muslim invasion by stealth into our countries. Being politically correct about it won’t change the truth of the matter.
I’ve no doubt many genuinely peace loving Muslims do come to our countries migrating legally, and all they want to do is live a peaceful life and be left alone to live it. Unfortunately they are also the sheep among which which the fundamentalist wolves in sheep’s clothing hide.

Chemtrails Are Over Las Vegas

Having read something of this from links in BillyD’s site, I had more or less dismissed them in my mind, but this is making me wonder.
It seems there are some reliable witnesses to this.
What do you think?

It has been reported that the “chemtrails” contain ethylene dibromide — a substance that has been an additive to gasoline and airplane fuels as well as a banned pesticide. Ethylene dibromide has been linked to kidney and liver damage and is an immunosuppressive and a lung irritant.

By the way, I’m not trying to upstage your ‘Conspiracy Wednesday’, Billy. Couldn’t if I tried – you’ve come up with some corkers.

Deal avoids Internet split

At least this is partly good news, though reading between the lines I would say the forces opposed to US control of the Net will certainly try again later.

The agreement set up two parallel tracks of talks, one an open-ended process “toward enhanced cooperation” by “relevant international organisations” on public policy issues, to be triggered by United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan early next year, according to the final draft.

The other creates an Intergovernmental Forum (IGF) to hold talks on all Internet issues, including problems such as as spam, cyber crime or computer viruses.

Officials said the private non-profit Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) was likely to exist even with its tender due for renewal by the US Government next northern summer, since nothing in the final draft ruled it out.

Second helping of Sheehan for Thanksgiving

Cindy, please, please just shut up and go home..

Man, this woman is like a sulphur intestinal gas explosion – hangs around forever.

Hmmm, didn’t I say that before somewhere/somewhen?

I guess it could be said that I should have compassion for her considering her loss, but unfortunately she seems to have little respect for her own son’s memory, so no, I don’t feel much except contempt.

And now, I hope I can exert a little more self control in the future and not write about her any more.

Iran’s New Revolutionary Guards Regime: Anti-Americanism, Oil, and Rising International Tension

This article from the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs has some good information on what’s going on Iran politically. The repercussions, for instance, of Mahmud Ahmadinejad’s railings against Israel and the West.

Excerpts:

Ahmadinejad’s crude militancy was demonstrated again when, in a speech on October 26, he called for Israel to be “wiped off the map.” Moreover, in remarks directed at Arab states, he added, “Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nations’ fury.” Such a threat was immediately condemned by most Western and Asian heads-of-state, Russia, and Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general. It was also criticised by leading Arab dailies and some prominent Iranian reformists and conservative personalities, who considered it a sign of dangerous inexperience. On November 4, a BBC website reported that Iran’s spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khamena’i, commented, “We will not commit aggression towards any nation, unless attacked.”

The Iranian president is expected to be a far more formidable enemy to the West and to America in particular. Thus, in October, General Safavi, commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards, declared before an audience of senior naval officers that Teheran’s mission was to create “a multi-polar world in which Iran plays a leadership role” for Islam. For this purpose, the “revolutionary factions” have in recent months conducted a major purge of the military, security apparatus, civil service, state-owned corporations, and media. Consequently, Iran’s armed forces are now controlled by senior commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, as are the police and the gendarmerie.

It seems that President Ahmadinejad’s abrasive and undiplomatic measures at home and in the international arena, ignoring Islamic Iran’s traditional power centres, have already produced powerful opposition to his policy and tactics. Indeed, Iran has called on the European Union to resume negotiations over Teheran’s controversial nuclear program.

Well, as is ‘normal’ for these times, things continue to be very interesting in the Middle East – especially if you look at it with eyes open for happenings that may fulfil prophecy from the Bible..

Oh no! Our tinfoil hats don’t work!

The guys at IMT have come up with a study “On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets: An Empirical Study”.

“It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings.”

Seems to me these guys had way too much fun with this very serious subject…

After all, what are we going to use now?

Well, you know what they say. First, when in doubt…

Beware a ‘Digital Munich’

This article from the Wall St Opinion Journal is written by Norm Coleman (Rep Senator from Minnesota). It is more on the attempts by the UN to take over control of the Internet.

“The Internet faces a grave threat. We must defend it. We need to preserve this unprecedented communications and informational medium, which fosters freedom and enterprise. We can not allow the U.N. to control the Internet.”

“Allowing Internet governance to be politicised under U.N. auspices would raise a variety of dangers. First, it is wantonly irresponsible to tolerate any expansion of the U.N.’s portfolio before that abysmally managed and sometimes-corrupt institution undertakes sweeping, overdue reform. It would be equal folly to let ICANN be displaced by the U.N.’s International Telecommunication Union, a regulatory redoubt for those state telephone monopolies most threatened by the voice over Internet protocol revolution.”

Spot on, Mr Coleman.

It is also obvious that countries with oppressive, anti-freedom regimes would be lobbying hard for this to happen as well. All the more reason to stop this in it’s tracks.
