Epic change in the mideast? While Joe Scarborough (see the Nov 30 posting) is mainstream media (MSM) compared to my little soapbox, he hits on themes here I've been writing about since just after 9-11. I'm glad someone with a wide audience is saying this before the MSM's turn the American public forgetful and yellow. It took 3 years to quell unrest in Germany after WWII. In Iraq it will take even longer.

Why is that? Because over 2 generations of Arabs have been taught to hate Westerners/Judeo-Christians. Their Imams have preached intolerance, hatred and even violence. The most radical and easily manipulated have seen their sons sent to martyrdom. Such brave fathers, expressing a willingness to reenter the fight even in their grief! Good, better to have to kill the "martyrs" in Iraq than in America.

Volunteers from other countries continue to enter Iraq to kill Americans. Again I say, good. As I've said before, it's easier on us when they are all in one place, especially if it's someplace else than America.

Until the Imams begin preaching the true word of Mohammed, of God's love for us and his desire for us to love one another, we will have a limitless supply of martyrs. Sometime soon I hope, the Islamists will perpetrate an act so inhumane it will turn the Arab world, or at least Joe Iraqi, against their brand of Islam and the cycle of hatred and death. Then the war will be won. Until then we must be "the benevolent, dominant tribe".

I applaud Secretary Thompson for bravely exposing a great weakness in our anti-terror efforts. Fortunately, the food system is quite capable of identifying and containing outbreaks. Ditto for infectious diseases like smallpox. But there would be casualties. All bets are off for a flu pandemic or (God help us) some engineered contagion. Short of a lockdown police-state, such a terror act is inevitable I suppose. Let's pray a good citizen, like the heroes of Flight 93, steps up and acts to prevent a greater catastrophe.

The Russians did a dog-and-pony show for their next-gen manned spacecraft. Funny looking mockup, but even if it's vaporware at least they have some plan. NASA is looking into throwaway capsules and Russia wants to upgrade to a reuseable. Apparently, Burt Rutan has a plan too, though in typical Rutan fashion he hasn't said much. A few minutes during the Discovery special about a Tier II (orbital) and Tier III (Lagrange and beyond) concept. SpaceShip One was the Tier I vehicle. Private enterprise works so much differently than Governments, doesn't it?

The Democratic party body politic has tried it's best to figure out why they failed in the election of 2004. The MSM keeps reminding us that it was a close election. But more people voted than in quite some time, a very good thing. Presidential elections are always close, in the popular vote anyhow. Remember, the popular vote doesn't count except for state-by-state and it's a winner-take-all affair state-by-state. Even James Carville has egg on his face. Maureen Dowd had to eat crow, figuratively, on Thanksgiving. Read her brother Kevin's e-mail in her article, as he sums it up:

"We do not live in a secular country. There are all sorts of people of faith that place moral values over personal freedoms. They are not all 'wacky evangelicals.' They are people who don't like Howard Stern piping a hard porn show over the airwaves and wrapping himself in the freedom of the First Amendment. They don't like being told that a young girl does not have to seek her mother's counsel about an abortion. They don't like seeing an eight-month-old fetus having his head punctured and his brains sucked out. They don't like being told the Pledge of Allegiance, a moment of silent prayer and the words 'under God' are offensive to an enlightened few so nobody should be allowed to use them."

Thanks Brother Kevin, you are so right.

The Federal Reserve is nicking up interest rates, the surest sign that the economy is going well. Over the long-term these Fed funds rates will continue to rise as the economy gets better. That is, unless a worldwide flu pandemic (or worse) breaks out. Worldwide demand for raw materials remains high and the world economy is quite hot. Prices have already began their rise, in some cases spiking sharply. Here in the United States deficit spending and the National Debt are genuine concerns but in both a soft economy and a war economy they are appropriate behaviors for governments.

To improve profits buy high quality surplus materials. Buying lower cost materials is the most leveraged means to improve profitability. Better than cutting labor and overhead costs. Better than increasing sales. So browse our site, check the listings and find an item you need. We'll save you money and improve your profits!

Many of us (those over 40, WAY over 40 or hovering near 40) are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashions. Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals
2. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedo's and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
10. Bikinis and liver spots
11. Short shorts and varicose veins
12. Inline skates and a walker

And last, but not least . . . my personal favorite:

13. Thongs and Depends

Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.

How much I wept at your hymns and canticles, deeply moved by the voices of your sweetly singing church. Those voices flowed into my ears, and the truth was poured out into my heart

St. Augustine of Hippo, (354 - 430)


Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty, and dies with chaos.

Will Durant
US historian (1885 - 1981)


Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.

Thomas Jefferson
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)


You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
