Super Alien

Over at The Hollywood Reporter (.com),they are wondering aloud if the newest Superman is no longer "American".
Nevermind Superman's sexual orientation. Here's another identity-related question that is likely to spark controversy as the Man of Steel soars into theaters nationwide this Fourth of July weekend in Warner Bros. Pictures' "Superman Returns": Is Superman still American?
Of course he isn't... never was.

He was born on the planet krypton, came here in a spacecraft, landed somewhere in middle America and ended up working at a newspaper.

He was sent here by his Dad, did not go through customs, did not get a work permit, was raised, educated and cared for by friendly American taxpayers and... continues to hide his identity and whereabouts.

In reality, Superman is just another "undocumented worker", an illegal alien of the first magnitude.

We are all aware that Hamas killed two Israeli solders and captured a third in a raid through a cross-border tunnel into Israel a few days ago.

Hamas "kidnapped" one Israeli soldier during this raid, and I can just imagine how many of you good Christians feel a righteous rage over this act of terror.

Now we are also aware the Israel has attacked the Gaza strip with a huge force of men, tanks and aircraft, destroying a Gaza electrical power plant that provided three-fourths of the electricity to the 1.4 million people in the strip.

Israeli response to a Hamas incursion? Perhaps.

But, did you know that Israeli warplanes have attacked the Gaza strip over seventy five times in the six months before this Hamas incursion? Killing almost one hundred Palestinians, including seventy-one women and children?

So where is your righteous rage over that?

Not All Science Is Good Science

OK guys, heads up on this:

Professor Anthony Bogaert from Brock University in Ontario, Canada, studied 944 heterosexual and homosexual men with either "biological" brothers, in this case those who share the same mother, or "non-biological" brothers, that is, adopted, step or half siblings.

Previous research had revealed the more older brothers a boy has, the more likely he is to be gay,

These results support a prenatal origin to sexual orientation development in men."

He suggests the effect is probably the result of a "maternal memory" in the womb for male births.

A woman's body may see a male fetus as "foreign", he says, prompting an immune reaction which may grow progressively stronger with each male child.

"The antibodies created may affect the developing male brain."

"These data strengthen the notion that the common denominator between biological brothers, the mother, provides a prenatal environment that fosters homosexuality in her younger sons."
So here we have a "scientific" researcher in a college environment who has come up with his very own solution as to why men are "gay".

Feminists are gonna love this guy. A male fetus is determined to be a "foreign" object in the scared temple of a woman's body, and her womb starts creating antibodies that attempt to modify this alien object in something other than what it is.

This is where the feminists are gong to have a field day. A women's womb tries to change a male fetus into something more acceptable, namely a female fetus.

I suppose if a womb had a few more months to accomplish this little trick, the metamorphosis would complete itself, and only girls -- wonderful, intelligent, understanding, communicative and loving daughters -- would be born into what would then be a manless feminist paradise.

What a giant crock of bad science... but it's gonna grow big feet.

The"Cut And Run" Argument

Democrats want to set up a timetable to withdraw our troops from Iraq, and they have a few points on their side to support such a move.

The republicans want to "stay the course", and they also have a few points to support their views.

The democrats say that until we set a definite date to leave, the coalition supported Iraqi government will be quite content to just let us do all the hard work, spend all the money, do all the re-constructing.

The republicans are saying to do that would send the "wrong signals" to the terrorists and show the world America doesn't have the guts to see it through. To "see it through"... just like we did in Korea, in Viet Nam, in Somalia, in Bosnia, for example.

The republicans, in a well-used and successful tactic, are accusing the democrats of wanting to just "cut and run". This was pretty effective in the last round of elections, when most of us believed that Saddam really did have weapons of mass destruction and that they would be found, when most of us believed that Iraq was supporting the terrorists, that Osama and Saddam were working in concert on the 9-11 attack, when most of us actually believed President Bush when he told us all that Saddam was only "weeks away" from attacking the United states with a nuclear weapon, when we all believed Secretary of State Powell when he stated that they knew exactly where all these WMD's were stored in Iraq.

The democrats, perhaps actually taking a lesson from history, have noted that Americans really don't have the stomach for long, drawn-out wars that squander national treasure and lives in an apparently endless flow, and are playing to the now majority of Americans who want this thing finished.

Perhaps even Bush and crowd sense this growing feeling of frustration over this war with a country that had nothing to do with 911, had no remaining WMD's, had no plans to attack the United States, and had no connection with Osama or the Saudi Arabian terrorists that actually did attack us.

It may be impossible for some pro-war Americans to realize that -- after Desert Storm -- Saddam had decided to leave America alone, just as Libya's Kadafi had previously decided after one of our bombs almost killed him. Both dictators had decided to keep to themselves, rather than prod the US into another attack, an attack they would have no possible way to defend against, and could only hide as their entire national infrastructure would be destroyed.

That's why Saddam never took us seriously over Bush's public threats to invade. He had actually done what he was told to do after Desert Storm, got rid of his remaining chemical and biological WMD's, and abandoned his nuclear ambitions, preferring instead -- like Libya's Kadafi -- to stay in control of whatever was left of their respective little empires.

Saddam must have figured that -- after years of inspections by UN search teams -- that the world knew and understood that he was out of the WMD business, that Bush really had no justification whatever to attack Iraq, other than to remove -- at American expense -- another of Israel's numerous enemies. It appears he did not believe that Americans in general would tolerate such an action, particularily a "pre-emoptive" one, a fancy way of saying "sneak attack". He mis-understood the power of the American media and it's ability to propagandize and brainwash a gullible and unthinking America.

The polls now show that more and more Americans are starting to figure this all out by themselves, even with all this relentless propagandizing to the contrary.

When Americans got fed up with Viet Nam, the federal government really did "cut and Run". It had no choice.., federal government politicians preferred to stay in office, rather than uphold the honor and reputation of America.

This will happen again in Iraq. You can see it happening. Americans want out of a war we never should have gotten into, and are realizing that taking one on the chin from international opinion and a huge blackeye in the honor department are just two of the prices we will pay to get out. So the politicians, democrats at first, belatedly followed by a thundering herd of republicans, will end this war, while the president -- continuing to demonstate his astounding ability to remain clueless -- will defiantly jut his chin out on national TV and pout a lot.

We -- you, me, all Americans -- should be humiliated and embarrassed by this coming Viet Nam style "cut and run". It will be announced as "troop reductions" and all manner of deceptive descriptions, but it will be just another "cut and run", another moment of national shame brought down on our heads by a stupid man in high office and his war-mongering advisors.

Maybe this time we will finally learn the lesson that allowing American presidents to run roughshod over anywhere in the world they may choose, sending our troops into sovereign nations only on the claims of a man like Bush... so easily fooled -- by lousy intelligence, he claimed later -- is something we can no longer afford.

News From down Under

Thursday Jun 22 03:03 AEST
Aboriginal men in central Australia are keeping girls as young as five as sex slaves, and trading sex for petrol to be sniffed, a whistleblower has claimed.
First thing to cross my mind when reading this is that they're called Aboriginal for good reason.

Is The Great Pyramid Really The Pillar of Enoch?

Here we go:

WND has a promo for a new book asking who really built the pyramids:
Producer Ken Klein has delivered one of the most compelling documentaries on the subject, making the case that the pharaohs were not responsible for the Giza plateau pyramids. It's called "The Lost Legend of the Great Pyramid: The Pillar of Enoch."
Compelling documentary? Since I've been interested in ancient Egypt for over thirty years and have many books on the subject, this book is not on my buy or read list for two really good reasons:

1)- Producer Ken Klein is not an Egyptologist by any measure, and:

2)- Trying to connect the Great Pyramid with something like the "Pillar of Enoch" is a dead giveaway that facts are going to be given little consideration in Stein's little romp through ancient history.

The mystery of who actually built the Great Pyramid has never been answered, since no records of any sort have ever been found concerning the structure, nothing on who ordered it built, or why, no records of dates, costs, manpower... nothing. This is startling, since we have documents showing that ancient Egyptians were avid record keepers, even down to the last drop of wine made in each and every corner of the empire, but not a peep on the construction of the Great Pyramid. Pharaohs -- men of great ego -- were also quite good at promoting themselves, and many pharaohs across many dynasties bragged endlessly on building this obelisk or that temple.

So who did build it? I certainly don't cotton to the idea that Erich Von Daniken is correct that aliens built the pyramids.

Dr.Zahi Hawass, the Egyptian government's Chief Inspector of Antiquities for the Pyramids and Sphinx, cannot be trusted for the facts, since he refuses to discuss anything that suggests that the pyramids or the Sphinx were built earlier than the time frame claimed by egyptologists, a time much older than the civilization of Egypt itself.

Dr. Robert Schoch, Professor of Geology at Boston University, says that The pattern of erosion on the Sphinx indicates that it was carved at the end of the last Ice Age, when heavy rains fell in the eastern Sahara - perhaps more than 12,000 years ago.

In a series of expeditions between 1991 and 1993 led by John Anthony West, an independent Egyptologist, scientific investigators conducted geological and seismic surveys around the Great Sphinx of Egypt. The chief geologist was Dr. Schoch, and the chief seismologist was Thomas Dobecki from the highly-respected Houston consulting firm, McBride-Ratclif & Associates.

(II) The team's conclusions were as follows:
A. The pattern of erosion on the Sphinx indicates that it was carved at the end of the last Ice Age, when heavy rains fell in the eastern Sahara - perhaps more than 12,000 years ago. This contrasts starkly with the 'orthodox' Egyptological dating for the Sphinx of around 4,500 years ago.

B. Seismography. The seismic survey indicated the existence of several unexplored tunnels and cavities in the bedrock beneath the Sphinx, including a large rectangular chamber at a depth of some 25 feet beneath the monuments front paws.

(III) In 1993 John West and his team were physically expelled from the site by Dr. Zahi Hawass then (and now) the Egyptian government's Chief Inspector of Antiquities for the Pyramids and Sphinx. He appeared to be angered by the suggestion that the Sphinx might be far older than the civilization of Egypt itself.
Why talk of the Sphinx? Because one side of the Sphinx enclosure exactly parallels -- for several hundred feet -- the ramp going to the Great Pyramid, which indicates to me that the ramp was there before the Sphinx enclosure was dug out to create the space for the statue. John Anthony West mentioned to me in one of our communications that there are several possible reasons for this coincidence. Sometimes the obvious is invisible.

The ancient Egyptians are known to have a great passion for balance and symmetry, but the ramp for the Great Pyramid apparently forced the builders of the Sphinx to create a horribly unbalanced excavation, and since they were also known to have a compulsion to put all constructs at certain exact alignments and positions, the Great Pyramid's ramp and the Sphinx enclosure crossed paths, as it were.

So, there is an unsolved riddle about the construction of the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx, and now comes Ken Klein, a producer, with the first real answers.

Not likely.

Dead Wrong

I watched "Dead Wrong" on CNN last night.

On the surface, it was a damning report about our intelligence community and it's failure to give President Bush and his staff correct and accurate intel before Bush committed American forces in an attack on Iraq with this "pre-emptive" war to prevent Saddam using any of his massive stockpile of Weapons of Mass Destruction on American cities.

But the body of this report was loaded with facts as to how Bush and his team selectively picked and used only intel that supported their desire to invade Iraq. This report demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bush and crowd were going to attack Iraq no matter what, using any rumor or source they could dredge up as justification.

The English report on Saddams purchase of uranium from Africa? The one Bush made such a dramatic speech about? It was over a year old, and dismissed by our own people, who went there and checked it out. Bush knew this, so did his staff.

The tubes for the centrifuges that Saddam was buying? Many of our own people -- experts all -- tried to show Bush they were for rocket bodies and could not possibly be used to enrich uranium. He ignored them all.

There were no WMD's in Iraq, we all know that now, and according to this report and many before it... Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld -- all of them -- knew it long before we attacked Iraq.

They were not misled. They were not given "bad" intel. Bush and his "people" were determined to pick a fight with Iraq, and not for any of the reasons they claimed.

There are no WMD's.
Saddam was not supporting Osama, nor did he have any connection with Al Qaeda or the Taliban.
Saddam had no plans whatever to attack any American city.

We can all see that now, even while Bush and crowd continue their fruitless efforts to convince us otherwise.

As we pass 2,500 killed in this war, I want to know the real reason Bush did this, why he lied to us all, why Cheney lied to us all, why Rumsfeld lied to us all, why Rice lied to us all.

I want to know why Bush started this war.

I want to know who is behind the scenes, encouraging this Man Bush to lie, to spend the lives of thousands of Americans uselessly, to squander billions and billions of dollars... for what? For who?

Some Choice

From Reuters"
RANGAMATI, Bangladesh - In what appears to be a case of elephants retaliating against humans, hundreds of villagers have taken refuge on boats in Bangladesh after their homes were destroyed by rampaging pachyderms, local officials said on Wednesday.
Wow. First picture to cross my mind after reading this was how the big party symbol of the republicians has been stomping all over the local population, then I realized that there are elephant tracks in MY peanut butter also.

The old joke: How can you tell if an elephant has been in your Refrigerator?
Answer : By the elephant tracks in your peanut butter.

Maybe come november us American villagers will retaliate for the stomping we've been getting from the elephants in Washington, but what an alternative... A Washington full of jackasses.

A New Party

Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman, warily (or perhaps nervously) watching his primary challenger advance in the polls, will soon need to decide whether to start collecting signatures for a possible independent bid this November.

Run as an independent? Not a good strategy, since the term
"Independent Candidate" automatically means no more than ten or fifteen percent of the national vote.

He needs to form a new party, but since all American elections are bought with good old cash on the barrelhead, it needs a name that would instantly garner the support of money handlers worldwide.

What to call it?

Something catchy, something that immediately identifies his priorities and allegiances to millions of potential like-minded supporters, something that would have a ready-made, built-in enforcement arm.

How about the Mossad Party?

Priorities: A Small Sampling

In New Jersey:
Two Democrats, Assemblywomen Joan Quigley and Linda Stender, are pushing to ban "Godless" from all bookstores in their state because of Coulter's biting criticism in the book of Jersey's celebrity 911 millionaire widows.
In Boston:
Window washer Christopher Guay - arrested after killing a sea gull - has been fired by his employer over the incident, and has now been arrested by an MSPCA officer and charged with animal cruelty, a felony.
In Philadelphia:
Owner Joey Vento, owner of Geno's Steaks, is facing a discrimination complaint filed by The city's Commission on Human Relations over signs that read: "This is AMERICA ... WHEN ORDERING SPEAK ENGLISH."
In Washington:
Rep. Patrick Kennedy has reached a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to a charge of driving under the influence of prescription drugs in connection for his middle-of-the-night car crash last month near the U.S. Capitol.Two additional charges of reckless driving and failure to exhibit a driving permit will be dismissed.
New York:
Al Gore hopes to train 1,000 messengers he hopes will spread out across the country... in his quest to make global warming his vehicle back to national prominence.
At least 12 million illegal aliens are in our country and the Federal government is close to it's goal of allowing all of them to stay, remain unprosecuted for the crimes of stealing the Social Security numbers and identities from over eight million real Americans, protest, procreate, receive support monies, get free medical care, attend schools, and have our present school teachers be required to take 300 hours of ESL (English as a Second Language) training at taxpayer expense.
Out in America:
Five million of our older Americans have not yet signed up for their Medicare, Part D, drug plan--they are old and perhaps confused by the complexity of the plan. The federal government absolutely refuses grant these five million law-abiding, tax-paying legal Americans an extension of any sort
On top of all that, the blobger spell checker did not recognize the term "Aassemblywomen". Maybe I should have tried "Assemblywomyn".

Move over Fred, I think you're going to get more neighbors.

Who Broke What Truce?

Hamas Military Wing Calls Off Israel Truce
Jun 09 8:07 PM US/Eastern

Associated Press Writers


Hamas militants called off a truce with Israel on Friday after a barrage of Israeli artillery shells tore into Palestinians at a beachside picnic in the Gaza Strip, killing seven civilians.
Even the most blindered supporter of Israel should be able to see through this spin job and realize who actually broke the truce first, by objectively reading what is written.

I'm not taking sides here, since Hamas and the Palestinians have done more than their share of truce breaking, but trying to cast Israel as the victim in this incident is laughable.

Study the second half of the above quote where it says "... after a barrage of Israeli artillery shells tore into Palestinians at a beachside picnic in the Gaza Strip, killing seven civilians."

Doesn't that count?

Interpreting reports on the events over there in Insanity Land is always difficult at best, since both sides lie, spin and progagandize to the hilt, but this report has a clarity of truth in it that is wholly unexpected.

Are Deeb And Barzak unbiased observers and reporters of the facts? Well, in this case they apparently reported the facts, but are laughably transparent in their attempt to spin the blame.

It's just another dismal report about the everyday events in Insanity Land, where hatred always wins the day, and -- in the long run -- will not change a thing.

The Dreaded 666

You saw it on TV, all the hype about the dreaded day that signaled something really, really bad was going to happen and destroy us all, forever.

It's the dreaded "devil's day", apparently created by the association of one paricular date on our calendar and the 666 mentioned in the bible. Or 6-6-6, or six, sixty and six, or six hundred and sixty six... whatever.

Was it the dreaded day? Was June 6, 2006 the long awaited day of retribution and punishment? The day some people actually are looking forward to? The day the world is destroyed and almost six billion people are put to the torch, keeping in mind that only 144,000 or so are supposed to be "saved".

The much feared day has come and gone, and We're still here, no scorpions, no fire and brimstone, no horns blaring, no beastly devil kin on the loose, no four horsemen... all that really, really scary stuff, you know... the stuff that makes your kids scared of the dark.

Not even a decent earthquake.

328 feet, And You're Dead Meat

More from the Middle East:
Egyptian security sources cast doubt on the Israeli account of an incident near Israel's Mount Saguy, opposite the Egyptian town of Bir el-Ma'in, in which the Israeli soldiers claim they saw three men infiltrating at least 100 meters (328 feet) into Israel, and opening fire on them.

Egypt says they were local policemen, shot after wandering across the unfenced desert border by accident.
100 meters across an unfenced desert border.

To believe that Egypt would attempt to infiltrate Israel with three uniformed policemen -- across open and exposed desert sand -- is to believe in the tooth fairy. Those Jewish soldiers could have just as easily walked up to those uniformed Egyptian policemen and told them they had crossed the border. Instead, ingrained contempt and hatred won the day.

But... it really doesn't matter who shot first, or for what reason. It's just more death in yet another pointless incident that will do its bit to increase the mindless hatred between Jews and Arabs.

What actually happened will never be known, since both sides will continue to lie forever over who was the guilty party. Everyday normal stuff in the Middle East... another example of the way of life over there in insanity land.

The real point for us to consider is that 3 Arabs "infiltrated" or "wandered" -- take your pick -- 328 feet into Israeli occupied territory... and got shot dead.

Now, that's border security! Even if the legality of that "border" has been in question for decades.

Imagine the uproar here in America if three Mexican policemen "wandered" 328 feet across our border and got shot by American soldiers.

"Value" Training

The Pentagon has announced that U. S. Military personnel are to receive additional "value" training as a result of the uproar over the suspected killing of Iraqi civilians by American troops.

The non-combatants back in Washington are now requiring that the troops under attack receive even more training to consider the legal, moral and ethical consequences of their actions before they pull the trigger in a combat situation.
I can see it now...
A motorized convoy of American troops witnesses one or more of their vehicles blown apart by an Iraqi IUD, watching as bits and pieces of their fellow solders splatter on the ground and walls around them. The surviving senior officer announces to the remaining live troops that -- before they do anything -- they must consider the legal, moral and ethical consequences of the actions they may take.

Setting up a conference table in the street, chairs all around, they pull out their laptops and load the latest Pentagon Prepared Power Point Presentation on legal, moral and ethical conduct while under attack by an unseen enemy.
Members of the TV news happy-faced "blonde muppet brigade" loved reporting about this "Value" training, as if such additional training would actually help solve something they themselves have no solution for.

These smiling, perky, flippant TV reporters and anchors, resplendent in the latest dress style, hair-do and hours-long makeup, should all volunteer to replace Kimberly Dozier on the front lines. Kimberly just experienced an Iraqi IUD up front and personal like. Serious money says they would all have a sudden change of attitude.

Of all the people in America who desperately need this "value" training on the legal, moral and ethical consequences of this war, it is George W. Bush, Chaney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Wolfowitz, Pearl and the rest of this war-loving administration.

Don't blame our troops for acting like soldiers at war in an enemy state. They are constantly under fire in a no-win situation in a place where every supposed civilian -- men, women and children -- can be an armed and deadly killer.

I would like the above mentioned war-mongering beltliners to be called to the bar... to face the consequences of their illegal, immoral and unethical decisions.

Better yet, put them all into an unarmored hummer and force them to drive around on Baghdad streets for twenty-four hours. If they survive, send them back to their jobs, better men for the experience... hopefully.
