Christians are fleeing Iraq in droves because of the violence. Many Mormons justified their support of this war on Iraq “opening” to the Gospel. What do you say now, my Mormon friends? Can you visualize missionaries walking around Iraq today?

Curt Weldon: Democrats Are After Me!

October 17, 2006 at 2:24 am | Posted in American politics, Democracy, Republicans | 2 Comments

Notice the difference between Harry Reid who had no problem fixing a mistake in his failure to disclose a land deal and Curt Weldon who has the FBI investigating him. He blames Democrats, as if Democrats are at fault for his crimes and for the FBI doing their job. Well, good work then Democrats!

Redeploy and Contain

October 16, 2006 at 10:20 am | Posted in American politics, Iraq, Military | Leave a comment

The Iraq Survey Group (James Baker’s job) recommends as one option “Redeploy and Contain.” Hmmmm, wasn’t that Murtha’s plan ONE YEAR AGO! Methinks Mr. Murtha won’t be getting any credit, nor any apology from conservatives for calling him a traitor…..

South Korea and China on Sanctions: Business As Usual

October 16, 2006 at 10:15 am | Posted in American politics, China, King George, North Korea, United Nations, World Events | Leave a comment

So China and South Korea will keep business as usual with North Korea, in spite of sanctions. Hmmmm, perhaps Bush should not have rushed the UN sanctions push. But methinks Bush was thinking more about the November elections than about protecting America…..

The Unreliability of Information Garnered From Torture

October 15, 2006 at 11:52 pm | Posted in Afghanistan, American politics, Iraq, King George, Military, Torture, War on Terror | 3 Comments

Even with all the evidence against it, so many Americans still feel justified in interrogating suspects with torture or “alternative set of procedures” as Bush likes to call them. It is time to show even more evidence of the unreliability of information garnered from torture. Continue Reading The Unreliability of Information Garnered From Torture…

Over on Our Thoughts, a Canadian blog, one of their writers asks about legalizing torture. The commenters debated whether sleep deprivation is indeed torture. I offer evidence that it is indeed torture. Continue Reading Sleep Deprivation IS Torture…

Bush and Rove Only Republicans Not Worried About November

October 15, 2006 at 2:26 am | Posted in American politics, Democracy, King George | 5 Comments

It seems that only Bush and Rove are not concerned about the outcome of the November election. I wonder what they know…..does it have to deal with the electronic voting machines and the ease to which they can be hacked?

Bitacle.org Steals Your Content

October 14, 2006 at 3:58 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

You have noticed a new addition to my blog in the right column. The Internet is a great tool for publishing your thoughts (and let’s be clear about this, even when you type this, the button at the bottom for when you want this to appear on the web is the “Publish” button) and possibly make money. I could conceivably contact Google.com and put some ads on my blog and make some money from all your visits. I don’t do that though. However, there are websites out there that take your RSS feed and make an image of your content on their site (under the guise that they are a search engine intended to help readers find content. However, the problem is that they take the full text of your blog posts and place them on their website. This way, the reader reads your entire post without ever having gone to your own blog. Not only that, but these kinds of sites put up ads so they make money off of your posts. The biggest one right now is Bitacle.org. I’m not going to link their website on my blog. They do not deserve that honor. They are most vile as they think they can make money off my content without my permission.

There are many blogs who have caught on to this thievery. Stopbitacleorg.wordpress.com provides everyone with information on how to stop these thieves.

Here are some links that will help educate everyone on the matter.

the Digital Millenium Copyright Act As a librarian, I went to a conference recently on the issue of Copyright and came back with a stronger understanding of the importance of Copyright laws. As one who writes his own thoughts, copyright laws are invaluable tools. This link to the Wikipedia section will help get an understanding of the law.

Allan Jenkins at Desirable Roasted Coffee dispells some of the myths regarding copyright and blogging.

Plagiarism Today gets into it as well. A few others get into taking down Bitacle.

I’ve done a quick search for content of my blog and have noticed that they have, in their search results, directed readers to my blog exclusively. They’ve been caught and they know it. I will, however, keep the copyright notices up. There will inevitably be others who will follow suit and try and steal my content for their own profit.

A Most Deserving Nobel Prize for Peace

Muhammad Yunnus, a Bangladeshi economist, who founded the Grameen Bank, received the Nobel Prize for Peace for his work in creating micro-credit programs for the poor.

Friday’s Bad News of the Day

October 13, 2006 at 3:41 pm | Posted in Abramoff Scandal, American politics | Leave a comment

I’m going to create a recurring post called “Friday’s Bad News of the Day” post, which will highlight the bad news to come out of Washington on Fridays. Those who pay attention will note that damning information that the Bush administration doesn’t want out, but is forced to release, is usually released on a Friday, because by the time Monday comes around, it is generally forgotten. Who remembers that just last Friday Karl Rove’s Aide resigned over her connections to the Abramoff scandal? (Why Rove hasn’t resigned yet, when he’s been in Abramoff’s pockets this whole time is incomprehensible and reprehensible).

Today’s Bad news of the day? Bob Ney Pleads Guilty to bribery charge. Continue Reading Friday’s Bad News of the Day…
