Action not words against terroists

I keep reading, on other blogs, that most Muslims do not want terrorism and are against it as much as the Israelis, Americans and other victims, yes Muslims are victims of terrorism as much as non-Muslims. But I noticed some problems in that their actions do not correlate with their statements.
When people are getting beheaded; we hear of no protests from the Muslims countries or people.
When cartoons show their icon in a bad light; we hear of plenty of protests from the Muslims countries or people, even death threats.
When planes are crashed into buildings; we hear of no protests from the Muslims countries or people.
When a country puts up a road block after her civilians are murdered by a bomb; we hear of plenty of protests from the Muslims countries or people, even death threats.
When a bomb goes off and kills children; we hear of no protests from the Muslims countries or people.
When they elect a terrorist organization to run your government and the rest of the world balks; we hear of plenty of protests from the Muslims countries or people.

It seems, to some of us, that Muslim protest only when they are directly effected. But when their own people commit crimes against non-Muslims not a word. It is one thing to write that you are against terrorism, but there does not seem to be any action to back up the statement.

When Israel or the US does something wrong there are lots of Israelis and Americans that will protest or write or complain. But I do not remember hearing the same thing from the Muslim countries. What we hear is complaints about racism or bigotry. We see propaganda from the governments to try and steer us in other directions. If Israelis started to commit crimes like car bombings, human children bombs, teaching hatred…, even if not government sanctioned I would protest, loud and clear. I would not make excuses. I would protest, I have protested.

It seems that the Palestinians are allowed to commit atrocities because they are oppressed. They are not murdered, they are not deprived of food, of work, of hospital care, of education of nothing. To want a separate country is great, but that is no reason to murder. No attempt was made to negotiate. No attempt was made to come to an understanding. Israelis were murdered from the beginning. Even the charters of the different terrorist groups proclaim the death of all Jews and Israelis. Yet no protest from the Muslim countries or people about this either.

When do humanist begin to protest the murder of Israelis as much as the protest the plight of the Palestinians?

Lies, Lies and Lies

I just read this story on There are a few things that bother me about this story. The first is that these guys seem to be casing the bus and the bus route and the school. These guys need to be investigated. That is obvious.

What really pisses me off is the statement by Ahmed Bedier, director of the Central Florida Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the St. Petersburg Times "the incident sounded like a cultural mixup." That is bullshit. This was no cultural mixup. What, in Saudi Arabia guys in their twenties take a school bus to a high school for no reason? Maybe they like to hang out with teenage girls? This is what really pisses me off about the Muslims "leadership" in this country. This jackass had a couple of choices when asked about the incident. He could have stated that he did not know what the hell happened and wait for the investigation. He could have said no comment. But instead he says that it is cultural.

Let us be honest for a second here. If an American was to enter Saudi Arabia they better not try crap like this. I have no idea what the punishment would be, but I am sure it would not be pleasant.

Do Muslims support Muslims

I am of the general thought that the US Government, us tax payers as it were, should not send money over seas willy nilly. Some would say not at all. But let us say, for the sake of argument, that we send money to allies and supporters. Why would we send money to people who hate us and have repeatedly called for our destruction??

This is confusing. This article states that Saudi Arabia, you know the country that exports the most oil in the world, wants the US, that is us, and the EU to continue to send money to the Palestinian "Government" under Hamas.

The question that comes to my mind is, why do not all of the oil rich countries send money to the Palestinian "Government" under Hamas? Why do these advanced, peaceful, tolerant, oil pumping countries need the West's help(anyone notice the sarcasms)? The Palestinian terrorist groups applauded the 9/11 terrorist acts, helped kill American soldiers and civilians and have been obstructionist to peace for years. Yet they are willing to ask and take our money.

If we are going to fool enough to send our money over seas, than we should be smart enough to put demands on those who take it. And we should be smart enough to send it to only allies and supporters. Again I am not arguing for or against foreign aid, just how it is administered.

Without borders we are not a country

Some people are very eloquent in their writing style. For me it is a struggle. So I will use this article to express some of my views on criminals called illegal immigrants.

Mychal Massie seems to have a way with words.

Our Government at Work

Not only is our government not doing anything serious about the open borders, but now they are helping the illegal aliens coming across. This is a Republican administration.

We are at war with terrorist who are trying to slip a nuclear bomb into this county. We do not control our borders. We have Mexicans shooting at border patrol agents. We have drug runners and murderers coming across in droves.

When a volunteer group of brave Americans try to do something about it this government hinders them at every turn. The people of this country really need to wake up and realize that we need people in the government that work for us. Can anyone out there give me a count on the number of elected federal officials who actually give a shit about our Constitution and not padding their wallet? We have to throw all these bastards and bitches out. All they do is hinder us at every turn. Now they are putting brave American lives at risk.

Book Recommendations

I like to read books. Mostly history, particularly biographies, these give great insight into historic periods and allow the reader to understand human nature that much more.

Recently I have read two books and I am in the middle of one book that I think are fantastic. Two of the books are science books. But they are not school books they are fun reading for those who are interested in scientific work and history.

The first is a book about “Five Equations That Changed the World : The Power and Poetry of Mathematics,” written by Michael Guillen. This book takes the reader into the basic understanding of science in the time of the scientist being discussed. The book talks about Isaac Newton and the Universal Law of Gravity, Daniel Bernoulli and the Law of Hydrodynamic Pressure, Michael Faraday and the Law of Electromagnetic Induction, Rudolf Clausius and the Second Law of Thermodynamics and Albert Einstein and the Theory of Special Relativity. We learn how and why these people became scientist. How they came to discover the laws that they did and how these laws affected the scientific world. I am actually on my second reading of this book because it is so well written. Yes I am a nerd, just ask my wife.

The second science book is by Bill Bryson. It is called ”A Short History of Nearly Everything.” This book traces the many different scientific thoughts and discoveries throughout history. It starts with Greek scientific thought and works its way through modern times. It is fun to read and it is written for the non-scientific person. After you read this you will walk away with a much better understanding of the physical world around you. I can not recommend this book enough.

The last book is a non-fictional journey into Iran in the 1990s. It is written by Azar Nafisi. ”Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books.” This is a powerful book written from the point of view of the writer. She was a Professor of Western Literature at the University of Tehran, I too was amazed that they actually have a course in Western Literature in Iran. The book is about her and seven of her students and their lives in post-Revolutionary Iran. It is an amazing insight into an Islamic Republic. For all those who think they understand the theory and practice of such a place this is a must reading. The subtleties of the oppression and violence of their homeland is much more perverse than I imagined. The yearning to be individual woman with simple choices that are taken for granted in the West is heart wrenching. This is a difficult book to read, it is harder to put down.

An American

I got this in an email and it was credited to a Autralian Dentist. I went to Snopes and found that it was written by Peter Ferrara, an associate professor of law at the George Mason University School of Law in Northern Virginia. Mr. Ferrara's commentary was originally published in the National Review on 25 September 2001.

It is an excellent piece.

An American

You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American. So I just thought I would write to let them know what an American is, so they would know when they found one.

An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan. An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them choose.

An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each man and woman to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. The best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes.

Americans welcome the best, but they also welcome the least. The national symbol of America welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed.

These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the Twin Towers in the morning of September 11, earning a better life for their families.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

So look around you. You may find more Americans in your land than you thought were there. One day they will rise up and overthrow the old, ignorant, tired tyrants that trouble too many lands. Then those lands, too, will join the community of free and prosperous nations.

And America will welcome them.

Really good eye hand coordination

This is Chris Bliss, I have no idea who he is. Mrs. Hatetaxes sent this to me and I have to share it. This is very cool. Well I think it is.

I wish I could juggle with three.

Gas wars

Just got this from an email. I looked at the link and damn if it doesn't state that CITGO is comletely owned by the socialist state of Venezuelia. I have to figure out who to by gas from now.

Venezuelan Dictator Vows To Bring Down U.S. Government

Venezuelan government is sole owner of Citgo Oil company

Venezuela Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government. Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century."

The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy Sheehan, the antiwar activist. Also, Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world." (HT comments - Good to see Americans helping out ruthless dictators. What the fuck is wrong with these people who sit and smile with murderers and than tell us we are wrong. Sort of destroys their whole argument.)

Chavez is pushing a socialist (Marxist) revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that we have a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the U.S., and he is using our money to achieve his goal!

The Venezuelan government, run by dictator Chavez, is the sole owner of Citgo gas company. Sales of products at Citgo stations send money back to Chavez to help him in his vow to bring down our government.

Take Action.

Please decide that you will NOT be shopping at a Citgo station. Why should U.S. citizens who love freedom be financing a dictator who has vowed to take down our government?

Very important. Please forward this to your friends and family. Most of them don't know that Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government.

Breaking News: Chavez announced this past week (Feb.22nd.) that, effective March 1st 2006, Continental and Delta Airlines could not fly into Venezuela, and that American Airlines flights would be restricted.

Boys Toys

This is amazing. I can not cite a source because I did not see one. But you have to check this out.

~ The mover stands  311 feet tall and 705 feet long.
~ It weighs over 45,500 tons
~ Cost $100 million to build
~ Took 5 years to design and manufacture
~ 5 years to assemble. 
~ Requires 5 people to operate it. This amazes me, only 5 people.
~ The Bucket Wheel is over 70 feet in diameter with 20 buckets, each of which can hold over 530 cubic feet of material.  A 6-foot man can stand up inside one of the buckets. 
~ It moves on 12 crawlers
(each is 12 feet wide, 8' high and 46 feet long). 
There are 8 crawlers in front and 4 in back. 
~It has a maximum speed of 1 mile in 3 hours (1/3 mile/hour).
~ It can remove over 76,455 cubic meters each day.
(100,000 large dump trucks at 40yds. each)

This is a bull dozer that got stuck in the bucket wheel. Nice perspective on the damn size of the thing.
