Literally, I am moving. See ya'll in about two weeks. Just so you don't miss me, here are two golden oldies from the archives.

The Fall, step by step. If he had only used a different line. Somethin' like, "There's a new Sheriff in Town!" or "How do ya like me now?". But unfortunately, he is dubya's father and the metaphor falters close to the tree, if you will. Nope, he was so cocky after winning a real life bona-fide War that he whipped open a fresh pack of Machiavelli slips and said "...The New World Order...". The rest of the sentence went the way of Neil's debts, lost to the world outside of a few 12th year college students. I think, no.. I'm fairly certain this was the the spark that lit the bong that kept the son from showin up to fight and possibly die in Viet Nam. Yes, this was the proverbial first book of Prose given to Dennis Miller. The first crooked monopoly set in lil Dicky Cheney's hands. The 500th "tried all night" defeat at the hands of the Game of Risk Club, Special Olympics Squad, for Donald the Defeatable Rumsfeld.If the elder Bush had not said exactly what was on his mind that day, this would have all gone down a lot easier, smoother, dare I say, Kerry-esque. One bit of preemptive honesty and a President went from 90% approval to losing to a Sax player whose abysmally poor taste in food is only outdone by his arkansahishly poor taste in women. That had to HURT. Well, serves him right. New World Order? What was he thinking using the name of his secret club in reference to the lack of an opposing superpower at that moment. BTW, any reds who think we are still preeminent globally, 2 lil hints... One-China Motherf**ker! And two- you are now the "Reds". Christ what does it take to get thru to these guys, 4 hurricanes in six weeks at the state that made their guy Prez, just prior to his reelection? Nevermind, they missed those also.Where was I? Oh yeah, so Bush1 blew the whole surprise and set back plan for the man by 10 years. Not a long time in comparison to the Illuminati, but these guys are old. 10 yrs is the difference between month long Viagra Vacations and Sunday morning Depends Drives. So they had to get er dun, pronto.
First step, polarize the petty opinions of the populace. Sound whacko? Here's Waco! The only tangible effect of that media molestered mass murder was the perma stamp of Godless Government Goons on the Democraps. My whole cousin clan ran to the hills with their M-16s, Good News '4-us-not-u' bibles and family sized tubs of personal lube. It was a chain reaction of paranoid Christian salvation. The Rapture- 'limited edition'. Nobody noticed it at the time, but where do you think all these 'Holier than thou once I drain this clip into ya!' big picture Buhner's came from. Waco, Ruby Ridge, and somehow... Elian Gonsalez fits into this, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how. or why.
So, they've Snuffed a Sect, next step F*ck up a Federal Building. They did not worry about frequent flyer miles back then, they just hit the next Stuckey's on the way to Washington. Oddly enough, the lack of geographical literacy and the overflowing absolutist mentality worked out well for them. Everything they wasted with their Mid west... Wait Middle East.... ah what's the difference? attitude garnered less public inquiry than a preempted Matlock rerun. To an objective viewer, the OKC bombing was a catastrophic failure. Bomb squad arrived pre-boom, expendable badges, bailiffs and bureaucrats all exitted and were quite explicably not amongst the exhumed and extricated exoxygen exchangers. Sorry, that was way too much adherence to a pattern. Just tryin to make myself known to the Scrabble Elite. Oh, not too mention, the guys who made the bombs forgot to brief the guys who wrote the investigational Cliff Notes, on explosives and exactly what was to be in the explanation. Scrabble Elite, soon... So, 4800#s of Anfo becomes Fat Man and Little Boy to some experts. Not any with any expertise, but what the Hell. And viola! Proof that no one cares what objective viewers think anyways. Personally, I've always suspected that objective was just a fancy way of describing people who don't think like the rest of us and like to argue bout it.
Now we'll switch to 1st person view as the action heats up. I'll trim a couple corners, too. Remember, this is fiction, art, not my fault if life imitates it.Give a buddy $$ to open a voting machine manufacturing company, make sure he names it after a Bruce Willis action flic "Die Bold"... What? Hard you say, F*ck it, Ohio is in the Midwest, won't hurt anything important... Damn Titular errors. There's an idea, get a Rabid Prosecutor on the President's ass about tits and ass to the point the whole country would rather hold the Executive Branch Above the Law than listen to one more Starr talk about Oral Sex, wow! On a roll, you let it ride! Impeach the Fat Guy for nothing and ensure nothing will be able to impeach you, no matter who learns the skinny. Well, better find a hobby while that Tripp plays out. Aha, you always wanted to kill some Texans, damn retards. We all know the story there.
Election Eve, 8years in the making and finally... You lose. Elections are all about numbers and delegates. You've never cared enough to pay attention to those pesky things before, so why start now. Call your mother. Call your brother. Now call the other guy, the a**hole who won, a sore loserman. Bingo it was the name, oh!Now you are the most powerful man in the world that no one likes. What do they like? Cool skyscrapers... Show em all what you think of their pointy assed skyscrapers. And wammo, you got whole Nation of people who like you and as a bonus, they want you to bomb those brown guys who live in Asia and don't have Mexican food or cervesa. No flautas, no future!Ok, and the rest is still his story. But you broke your only in the Mid/middle rule. You kicked those building's asses in NY. Now, that's an understandable mistake being that you ain't city folk, but lemme explain why it's wrong. In NY, tradition means nothing and people flip flop, not their shoes. And it's not really a bad thing to change your mind or learn from your mistakes. It's evolution rea... oh nevermind. back to your story...Sure, you snowed em at first with your 7 minute pause to thoroughly think through your options, but in NY they hang huge TV's from Buildings and sooner or later someone was going to see your "wha? woa.." approach to crisis and call ya an A**hole. That and Skynyrd doesn't really rule, Mob does. Well, 4 years after the deed shoulda been dead in their minds, the masses wake up and smell the asbestos you helped Larry dispose of at a fraction of what it would have cost to remove the slow way. In fact, you accidentally made Larry about $800 million. As you look around, you should feel proud, you've made all of your friends filthy Rich and at what price? Just a country stupid enough to believe you in the first place? And a planet too lazy to stop you. No big loss....

The Fall in more Detail. Step by 2 -Step
This is a reply to an email I received recently. Thought it might be of use here.
I think this is the point where most people over estimate the event, it's creators, and the prep work. But first, good ole #7. This is really the key to the whole thing. Not to conspiracy but to profiling the masterminds. #7 was a cluster fuck of bad judgment. It was timed poorly, dropped perfectly and expected to simply vanish from the collective memory. It almost did. In recent history we have had 2 other events with the same signature disregard for reality. Oklahoma City and Waco.
Waco was the first and the gutsiest use of the media to completely alter the publicÂs perception of an event. More so it created the reality. We were told that 160+ people locked themselves in a compound for the purpose of worshipping the Anti-Christ and raping a bunch of kids. When discovered, they ambushed the surprised and outgunned ATF agents who only went down there that day to check on the well being of the children. After a long struggle the ATF escaped and called in the FBI to negotiate a surrender. In that position the FBI used a non violent approach. Heck, they didnÂt even fire a shot. To spite this peaceful delegation, the Davidians decided to immolate themselves. Please disregard any evidence to the contrary you may have seen. Like the tanks pumping cz into the building. The incendiary grenades thrown thru the windows to ignite the gas. All the FLIR video of suppression fire from multiple persons outside the compound, which actually worked to push the victims, I mean cultists back into the inferno. Oh, and please donÂt listen to any of the hours of 911 tape from the devil worshippers. They were trying to win the propaganda war with their completely insincere, but amazingly well acted pleas for help to the police.
Not only is the accepted story complete BS with no supporting evidence and a mountain saying otherwise, but it doesnÂt even need the easily disproven claims like ÂThe FBI didnÂt fire a single shotÂ! Did anyone care that 160+ citizens were besieged and burned to death for failure to pay an arsenal tax on 2 purchases of 5000 rounds of ammo? No. And that is what really happened. That was why the ATF stormed the complex. When you buy ammo, any purchases of 5000 or more rounds has a tax on it called an arsenal tax. I can't remember the rate, but it is more than high enough to make people avoid it. If you shoot, 5000 rounds is not a whole lot. I'll run 2k thruogh a hand gun for practice any given afternoon. Of course, if you shoot you also have at one time or another gone to 2-3 different stores and bought 4500 rounds at each. Why pay the tax? Well, cuz that's illegal. It's tax evasion. Everyone does it though. The Davidians did it and were put to death for it. Kinda like getting lynched for Jay walking. I am not going to get into any more details of their murder, but check out "Waco- The rules of engagementÂ for the over view.
Then came Oklahoma city. 4800# of anfo was driven 50 miles by 2 guys, placed outside a building, detonated and it went off like Cardinal Slip E. Phist on a preschooler at a Catholic Mixer.. Bullshit. That much anfo, would have made a hole in the parking lot that would not need immediate repair. Plus, you canÂt move it once mixed and that is saying you have the chemistry degree and OCD necessary to mix the manure and gasoline perfectly. They could have gone to the reservation and bought $100 dollars worth of m-80s and had a much more powerful explosive.
So there we have two incidents with absurd explanations swallowed hook line and sinker like coke filled condom at a border crossing. And you know what? Other than the experts: i.e. generals, the guy who invented flir cameras, demo crews, physicists, professors and the like, you know smart people, not a single person has even noticed.Now look at #7. The powers that be put 15 million worth of upgrades into #7 within a year of 9-11. One whole self contained floor with blast proof windows, it's own air and water, every possible type of communication device and mile high security for no reason whatsoever. Then, on 9-11 Rudy, ÂI busted two Irish guys and called them the mobÂ Juliani holds court there with Fema and about 30 business associates on the same day the buildings were hit. Of course, something went wrong. The buildings did not go boom when the planes hit. They didnÂt even shimmy much. Why? Because they were designed to do that when hit by planes. Not if, when. It was a priority of the architect to make Âem plane proof. So the Hollywood FX circuit board fails to trigger the explosions on impact. What now? Start checkin wires. This goes on for a little less than an hour. Someone phones and Rudy and his buddies come flying out of #7 like their lives depended on it. Of course, I would have bolted 52 minutes earlier when the second plane came in. Not them though. They stayed bravely until 4 minutes before the first tower goes off. ThatÂs lucky timing. Why did they run then? Well , for 52 minutes a couple of demo gurus have been randomly zingin wires to see what works. That has caused random booms on the other end, destabilizing the buildings. They figure they better light one up before it fall across the city. The tech guy tells Rudy that he doesnÂt know if the tops will pop to dust on the way down. You see towers were built plane proof, but the wires connecting the sequencer to the bombs like the Bush family to corporate bail outs wasnÂt . The mild fires could have removed the insulation the wires needed to carry current down the line. Side note- Somehow, the guys at homecoming Queen (Popular, right?) Mechanics mix this up with the idea that without asbestos mittens, steel melts at toaster temperatures. Actually they would have lasted forever with or without the fireproofing. Now back to Rudy-tooty-haulin-booty out the building. He and his posse exit building left and inadvertently start the next big fashion trend for Asia. Air filter masks. A couple shots of the great escapees whipping their ÂdonÂt leave home without ÂemÂ breath masks and the next two years China goes Chin-less, mouthless, and noseless under RudyÂs fad fashion sense. It takes a great man to think to pack an air filter on a beautiful autumn day. I would never have guessed that I would soon be in a shit cloud of asbestos if IÂd been in his shoes that day.
Speaking of Asbestos. Funny coincidence here. If not for the Wars Halliburton would have been sunk under the weight of all the lawsuits Cheney got as a surprise gift for buying a piss ant company a couple years earlier. The terrorists really did him a favor by putting Halliburton back in the black with cost plus one contracts to provide everything but the bullets and the bodies needed to hunt down and kill those terrorists. And it really helped when legislation was passed to keep the homeland secure from trivial lawsuits for alleged losses people claimed when their loved ones died of Mesothelyoma. If you donÂt know what that is, watch late night tv commercials. Yep., nothing more dangerous to the US than trivial lawsuits putting hurtful cash drains on the asbestos industry just because it knew it was killing people when it kept their steel from burning up in fires.
But, wait, the Homeland is more than just asbestos manufacturing companies run by Cheney, Right? Thanx for the reminder. Brave Billy Frist saw the vulnerability and attached protections for the Âbarely keeping their heads above waterÂ pharmaceutical companies, to the Patriot acts 1 and #2. So what if your kid has a pound of Mercury in his head and canÂt spell dad backwards at 18? He didnÂt get the flu did he? See, vaccinations are important and best preserved cheaply.
Back to the story.The 1st tower goes off. The top thirty floors do a redneck cannonball at #7, but turn to dust like a Buffy bad guy half way down. Six is sunk under the powder, but 7 lives to die another day... or 5 hours later, whichever comes first.Everybody gets what they want. Rudy goes on to run for the Senate. Too bad the ass cancer holds him back (Maybe there is a God!). Rummy gets to play Napoleon in the upcoming reenactment of Waterloo. Bush gets respect and everyone forgets about the election he stole. Cheney gets the Middle East and most of America. Big Pharma gets to sleep soundly at night knowing that the next generation is going to be to fucked up on ethyl-mercury to even say litigation, let alone spell it or try it. The Nuclear weapons industry gets to pull out all that pesky waste they've been hiding in storage sheds and sell it to the Pentagon. The Pentagon gets to equip the military with super bullets that not only kill the enemy, but also take care of any vets who survive the two stop loss wars. Think of what they can do with all the money they save since none of the guys they promised to pay at retirement will live that long with lungs full of DU. Social Security will be fine, since the asbestos floating around the East coast will keep just about everyone there from making it to 65. Silverstein gets 3,5 billion in insurance for a 300 million dollar 6 week investment and he saves 800 million thanx to terrorist asbestos removal. Everyone lives happily ever after, rich and righteous.Well, except the common man that is. Srew them. With their mortality rate for the next 100 years, not like they are gonna be all that common anymore anyways.

"An American aid worker taken hostage with three other peace activists was apparently tortured before he was shot in the head and chest and his body dumped near a railroad line in Baghdad, Iraqi police said Saturday. "
So sang the heavy headlines. Then, of course, the death was immediately blamed on insurgents.
The headlines also paint a fair picture of a religious man who had traveled around the world doing what he could to help those in need. Showing by example his convictions. He spent time in the west Bank to help the Palestinians with their cause. He had repeatedly gone to Iraq to help the occupied people there. It seems almost unbelievable that in the face of all this, those people would choose to torture and kill this friend.
Well, if it seems unbelievable, it's probably because it is. He was handcuffed to a chair, beaten, shot execution style then dumped on the outskirts of one of the few reasonably peaceful cities left in Iraq. If recent history has taught us anything, it is that dead Americans left near cities are a bell tolling for that city. 2 months from now remember the name "Dawoudi", I'm certain you will be hearing it quite a bit by then.
Why would the insurgency kill an ally to their cause. Quick answer, they wouldn't. Thus ends the motive part of sermon today, now onto Motif. In music a motif is a pattern or series of repeated progressions making up a song. Look into the patterns here... You will begin to experience what i like to call "duh". Keyword search while you can!

In the last week, the Patriot Act passed in a Congress that, once again, refused to investigate another crime committed by the White House. Funny, investigate the entire population for no reason, but not the obvious threat to the Constitution and this Nation. Well, here is something positive to think about: Someday there will be Justice, it is inevitable...
Hans and Sophie Scholl were German teenagers in the 1930s. Like other young Germans, they enthusiastically joined the Hitler Youth. They believed that Adolf Hitler was leading Germany and the German people back to greatness.
Their parents were not so enthusiastic. Their father - Robert Scholl - told his children that Hitler and the Nazis were leading Germany down a road of destruction. Later - in 1942 - he would serve time in a Nazi prison for telling his secretary: "The war! It is already lost. This Hitler is God’s scourge on mankind, and if the war doesn’t end soon the Russians will be sitting in Berlin."
Gradually, Hans and Sophie began realizing that their father was right. They concluded that, in the name of freedom and the greater good of the German nation, Hitler and the Nazis were enslaving and destroying the German people.
They also knew that open dissent was impossible in Nazi Germany, especially after the start of World War II. Most Germans took the traditional position - that once war breaks out, it is the duty of the citizen to support the troops by supporting the government.
But Hans and Sophie Scholl believed differently. They believed that it was the duty of a citizen, even in times of war, to stand up against an evil regime, especially when it is sending hundreds of thousands of its citizens to their deaths.
The Scholl siblings began sharing their feelings with a few of their friends - Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf - as well as with Kurt Huber, their psychology and philosophy professor.
One day in 1942, copies of a leaflet entitled "The White Rose" suddenly appeared at the University of Munich. The leaflet contained an anonymous essay that said that the Nazi system had slowly imprisoned the German people and was now destroying them. The Nazi regime had turned evil. It was time, the essay said, for Germans to rise up and resist the tyranny of their own government. At the bottom of the essay, the following request appeared: "Please make as many copies of this leaflet as you can and distribute them."
The leaflet caused a tremendous stir among the student body. It was the first time that internal dissent against the Nazi regime had surfaced in Germany. The essay had been secretly written and distributed by Hans Scholl and his friends.
Another leaflet appeared soon afterward. And then another. And another. Ultimately, there were six leaflets published and distributed by Hans and Sophie Scholl and their friends - four under the title "The White Rose" and two under the title "Leaflets of the Resistance." Their publication took place periodically between 1942 and 1943 - interrupted for a few months when Hans and his friends were temporarily sent to the Eastern Front to fight against the Russians.
The members of The White Rose, of course, had to act cautiously. The Nazi regime maintained an iron grip over German society. Internal dissent was quickly and efficiently smashed by the Gestapo. Hans and Sophie Scholl and their friends knew what would happen to them if they were caught.
People began receiving copies of the leaflets in the mail. Students at the University of Hamburg began copying and distributing them. Copies began turning up in different parts of Germany and Austria.
Moreover, as Hanser points out, the members of The White Rose did not limit themselves to leaflets. Graffiti began appearing in large letters on streets and buildings all over Munich: "Down with Hitler! . . . Hitler the Mass Murderer!" and "freiheit!
. . . freiheit! . . . Freedom! . . . Freedom!"
The Gestapo was driven into a frenzy. It knew that the authors were having to procure large quantities of paper, envelopes, and postage. It knew that they were using a duplicating machine. But despite the Gestapo’s best efforts, it was unable to catch the perpetrators.
One day - February 18, 1943 - Hans’ and Sophie’s luck ran out. They were caught leaving pamphlets at the University of Munich and were arrested. A search disclosed evidence of Christoph Probst’s participation, and he too was soon arrested. The three of them were indicted for treason.
On February 22 - four days after their arrest - their trial began. The presiding judge, Roland Freisler, chief justice of the People’s Court of the Greater German Reich, had been sent from Berlin. Hanser writes:
"He conducted the trial as if the future of the Reich were indeed at stake. He roared denunciations of the accused as if he were not the judge but the prosecutor. He behaved alternately like an actor ranting through an overwritten role in an implausible melodrama and a Grand Inquisitor calling down eternal damnation on the heads of the three irredeemable heretics before him. . . . No witnesses were called, since the defendants had admitted everything. The proceedings consisted almost entirely of Roland Freisler’s denunciation and abuse, punctuated from time to time by half-hearted offerings from the court-appointed defense attorneys, one of whom summed up his case with the observation, "I can only say fiat justitia. Let justice be done." By which he meant: Let the accused get what they deserve.
Freisler and the other accusers could not understand what had happened to these German youths. After all, they all came from nice German families. They all had attended German schools. They had been members of the Hitler Youth. How could they have turned out to be traitors? What had so twisted and warped their minds?
Sophie Scholl shocked everyone in the courtroom when she remarked to Freisler: "Somebody, after all, had to make a start. What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don’t dare to express themselves as we did." Later in the proceedings, she said to him: "You know the war is lost. Why don’t you have the courage to face it?"
In the middle of the trial, Robert and Magdalene Scholl tried to enter the courtroom. Magdalene said to the guard: "But I’m the mother of two of the accused." The guard responded: "You should have brought them up better." Robert Scholl forced his way into the courtroom and told the court that he was there to defend his children. He was seized and forcibly escorted outside. The entire courtroom heard him shout: "One day there will be another kind of justice! One day they will go down in history!"
Roland Freisler pronounced his judgment on the three defendants: Guilty of treason. Their sentence: Death.
They were escorted back to Stadelheim prison, where the guards permitted Hans and Sophie to have one last visit with their parents. Hans met with them first, and then Sophie. Hansen writes:
"His eyes were clear and steady and he showed no sign of dejection or despair. He thanked his parents again for the love and warmth they had given him and he asked them to convey his affection and regard to a number of friends, whom he named. Here, for a moment, tears threatened, and he turned away to spare his parents the pain of seeing them. Facing them again, his shoulders were back and he smiled. . . .
"Then a woman prison guard brought in Sophie. . . . Her mother tentatively offered her some candy, which Hans had declined. "Gladly," said Sophie, taking it. "After all, I haven’t had any lunch!" She, too, looked somehow smaller, as if drawn together, but her face was clear and her smile was fresh and unforced, with something in it that her parents read as triumph. "Sophie, Sophie," her mother murmured, as if to herself. "To think you’ll never be coming through the door again!" Sophie’s smile was gentle. "Ah, Mother," she said. "Those few little years. . . ." Sophie Scholl looked at her parents and was strong in her pride and certainty. "We took everything upon ourselves," she said. "What we did will cause waves." Her mother spoke again: "Sophie," she said softly, "Remember Jesus." "Yes," replied Sophie earnestly, almost commandingly, "but you, too." She left them, her parents, Robert and Magdalene Scholl, with her face still lit by the smile they loved so well and would never see again. She was perfectly composed as she was led away. Robert Mohr [a Gestapo official], who had come out to the prison on business of his own, saw her in her cell immediately afterwards, and she was crying. It was the first time Robert Mohr had seen her in tears, and she apologized. "I have just said good-bye to my parents," she said. "You understand . . ." She had not cried before her parents. For them she had smiled."
No relatives visited Christoph Probst. His wife, who had just had their third child, was in the hospital. Neither she nor any members of his family even knew that he was on trial or that he had been sentenced to death. While his faith in God had always been deep and unwavering, he had never committed to a certain faith. On the eve of his death, a Catholic priest admitted him into the church in articulo mortis - at the point of death. "Now," he said, "my death will be easy and joyful."
That afternoon, the prison guards permitted Hans, Sophie, and Christoph to have one last visit together. Sophie was then led to the guillotine. One observer described her as she walked to her death: "Without turning a hair, without flinching." Christoph Probst was next. Hans Scholl was last; just before he was beheaded, Hans cried out:
"Long live freedom!"
Unfortunately, they were not the last to die. The Gestapo’s investigation was relentless. Later tried and executed were Alex Schmorell (age 25), Willi Graf (age 25), and Kurt Huber (age 49). Students at the University of Hamburg were either executed or sent to concentration camps.
Today, every German knows the story of The White Rose. A square at the University of Munich is named after Hans and Sophie Scholl. And there are streets, squares, and schools all over Germany named for the members of The White Rose. The German movie The White Rose is now found in video stores in Germany and the United States.
Richard Hansen sums up the story of The White Rose:
"In the vogue words of the time, the Scholls and their friends represented the "other" Germany, the land of poets and thinkers, in contrast to the Germany that was reverting to barbarism and trying to take the world with it. What they were and what they did would have been "other" in any society at any time. What they did transcended the easy division of good-German/bad-German and lifted them above the nationalism of time-bound events. Their actions made them enduring symbols of the struggle, universal and timeless, for the freedom of the human spirit wherever and whenever it is threatened. "

Much has been said lately about the Clashing Cultures and Cartoons Chaos enveloping Europe and the Middle East. I hold a very low opinion of these "artists" and that nadir is only outdone by my opinion of their sensationalism-sucking-scandal-stewing anything-to-sell-more-copy-of-a-rerun-rag publishers. Freedom of Speech means information availability, not ordered over-printed overkill. That being said, it is unfortunate that the Danish Doodles are the only Assault Art being discussed by most. There are some great works out there that are being overshadowed by the squiggles.
Case in point, from The Study of Revenge here is Kick the Bastards Out by D. T. Devareaux. At first glance this picture seems simplistic, childish, and hateful. First glances are deceiving in this case. Anyone immediately dismissing this piece in such a way would be succumbing to its irony. (Not in any way the "Irony" of Allanis Morrissette which is still just "unfortunate") The irony here is that one must actively embrace a simplistic, childish and hateful prejudice to dismiss this work out of hand. Mr. Devareaux has been accused of many things, but stupidity is not one of them. The emotions he is triggering in the the viewer are well planned and ordered.
At first the knee jerk Intellectual reaction of "Showing a people in such a light is wrong. We must accept these people." No we don't. The operative word is tolerance. We must tolerate these people, as they must show tolerance to others as well. If they fail to live up to this agreement, then the deal is off. There shouldn't be a culture clash going on. When in Rome, do as the Romans or get fed to lions. It is that simple. If you were to travel to any other country, you would be expected to act accordingly. The mind numbing concept of consideration for the guest over the host is an anachronism spawned of feudal Nobility. It's an old, outdated form of Chivalry that should have been given the boot long ago. In the immortal words of Dave Mustane "What do you mean I hurt your feelings, didn't know you had any feelings. What do you mean I'm unkind, just not your kind." Like it or not America is a society with its own unique customs and culture. 200 years ago it might not have been, but since then it cultured a culture. We are not multi-cultural as some claim. We are a stable Petri dish of adaptive and infectious culture. We assimilate the traditions we like from immigrants even as we force feed ours into them through sensory overload. Face it, 40 years from now the only language on the Earth will be Spanglish. Why, because Americans refuse to learn any other languages and the Mexicans are the masters of the slow and subtle teaching techniques.
Next come emotional string pulled is fear. This one goes to the opposite end of the ideological lunatic fringe. The Right Wing Fascists and IslamoNazi's. Whether you are listening to a black hooded Matyr or a Power suit and Tie guy, you'll notice a distinct trend in illuminative wordings and unfounded empowerment. The guy on TV bragging about spiritual superiority based on his ability to explode and the Pro-War Now because they dodged their draft days demagogues, have something in common, they are Dante's punchline. They are living embodiments of paradox and stupidity conjoined. Fortunately they get what they deserve if their faith turns out to be well placed. An Islamic martyr gets to go to Heaven where he is immediately greeted by 70 women so frigid in life that they won't put out even in paradise. That's hell for ya. On the other side, the Coward dies a thousand deaths if he's really successful, it is easier for as camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a Rich Man to get into Heaven. Bummer.
Now to the center of the painting. The center of our World, Western Civilization. By "Our" I mean those of us from Western Civilization. .. Boot back to where they come from. Some may consider the proposition a bit harsh, but allow me to explain the benign and the goodwill you may have missed. The single most inspirational behavior, attitude, habit sparking the fires between the middle Easterners and the Westerners is the Utopian Paradise of the subjective middle east. If you leave your country of birth and work your ass off to get to another country, far away were you have no money, friends or citizenship rights, don't even try to tell me how great it is over there. If it was so great, you would not have left. It sucked, you knew it, you came here because you had reasonably decided that here was better, and then you forgot how bad it was there and decided for nostalgia sake to recreate that crap in your new home. Well, guess what, even nostalgia not as good as it used to be. Adapt or get airlifted back to your fled home. Why go to all the trouble of recreating our society in your sentimental memory's image when we can easily provide you with a one way ticket to where ever you came from.

The video "Ghost Writer" is currently entered in a Contageous Festival at Huffington Post.
Although I could not care less about the contest, the exposure for the message could be incredible. Please follow this link to the video. The more popular it becomes, the more exposure it will get. Tell your friends to go there also.

Thanks to the DieBold Gems Tabulator, we have a winner. This is the new logo with 6,000 votes over it's nearest opponent's total of 1. As you can easily verify these votes by their all coming from the comment section of the last post, I feel it was in the best interest of all involved that we have no auditable paper trail to back this number up. Oh glorious democracy, thanks to all three people who voted.

This Article translated into Flash for your convenience
It would seem that there were a few paragraphs missing from Doug Barber's "PTSD" article which was reposted here. In the spirit of transparency, they are as follows:
"Talk show hosts like Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and so many others act like they know all about war; then they refuse to give any credence to soldiers like me who have been to war and seen the brutality of war. These guys are nothing but WEAK SPINELESS COWARDS hiding behind microphones while soldiers come home and are losing everything they have.
I ask every American who reads this e-mail to stand up for the soldier who has given their everything for this country to stand up to these guys in the media; ask them why they don't pick up a weapon and follow in the steps of a soldier. Send this e-mail to as many people on your e-mail lists and ask them to do the same.
There needs to be a National awareness for every Veteran who has ever served in any war. Send e-mails to the Big Mouths on TV and ask them to have soldiers like me on their programs. I am asking you as Americans to BOYCOTT every TV show or host/journalist that refuses to tell the real truth.
THIS IS A PERSONAL CHALLENGE TO BILL,SEAN AND RUSH TO HAVE ME ON YOUR PROGRAM TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT. Otherwise you are nothing but dirt under every soldier's boots!
SPC. Douglas Barber
To all crooked government officials that is reading my e-mail, I hope you are enjoying yourself and maybe one day your eyes will be opened to the master who enslaves you. I know how to fight warfare and am prepared to fight it as well. LET THIS BE A WARNING!! I am watching and I know you are watching me but I don't care. LET FREEDOM BE HEARD."
Not to sound conspiratorial, but does anyone have any evidence that this guy actually took his own life? I mean, aside from a few answering machine messages which I could fake with cheap a cheap voice mod program. This last part sounds suicidal, sure, but not like someone who plans to go it alone.

The AP released a video today of the President's meeting with FEMA on August 29th. It is the Katrina briefing. Oddly enough, it shows Micheal Brown voicing concern about pretty much everything that went wrong. It also shows the President promising State and Local government the support it will need. Support that showed up a week later.
How is it that they knew what was going to happen, yet did nothing when it all went down?
Anyone with an answer for this, please feel free to comment it below.
Here's yet another one for the "Bush lied" tracker. "No one could have anticipated the breach of the levees."
Someone did. They told him. It is all on video.
