Help ... a little

It occurred to me as I was reading an article yesterday, that I have a donate button on this blog, but I have never asked anyone to donate. Let me explain my situation really quickly first.

I am a father of 3 young girls (one is 2, one is 5, and the other would be 4). It's a long story I may one day share here regarding my other little one, but for now I'll let it be. On with the brief explanation-- I recently lost my job, then we had to relocate almost 400 miles from where my family lived in our first home. So it's been really rough lately. I've been short two main things, time and cash.

My intent was to start this blog to sort of share with the world and perhaps meet people who think somewhat like I do, or if they disagree can carry on a civil debate. Yeah, I did plan on making some money with ad space too, like I said I got a family to feed. Unfortunately, this all takes time to develop and time is something I've been short of.

So this whole project is unfortunately behind schedule and I hope there is someone who can help me out. So here is my proposal to anyone who is willing to help someone out. Comment on this blog post, letting me know any tips you may have for a successful blog. Anything you think might help this blog out, please contribute and let me know what I can do to make this more interesting. That would be most valuable! If you are able and willing, feel free to click on the Donate button while you're here. This will be the only time I'll ask, but the button will remain for the foreseeable life of this blog.

Thanks a whole bunch!

Muhammed Bear

As an illustration of the kind of people most of the world is dealing with, there is the Muhammed Teddy Bear issue in Sudan. This is the same Sudan where Muslims (who control the government there) have been committing genocide in the Darfur region. So now they are possibly going to give a (Christian) school teacher a bunch of lashes for letting her students name a bear Muhammed.

Remember, there is no God but Allah and Muhammed is his prophet. Allah Ahkbar! All that good stuff!

I guess in many ways she's lucky. In other regions she might very well get beheaded just for being Christian. I think there are two reasons she might just make it out without punishment though. First, the school was one where the parents were well-to-do. That in most countries is almost a free pass. The second is the fact she is a British citizen and this is garnering a lot of press internationally. Sudan doesn't seem to care a lot about what the rest of the world thinks, but at least they don't thumb their noses up at everyone like Iran( don't get me started on Iran though).

I am a Christian and I don't think I would have a problem with a Teddy bear named Jesus. To me that isn't blasphemous or insulting. Children are especially good at naming stuffed animals, toys, etc. after things they admire. I understand that the bear is an object and might even be considered an idol (well sort of... no not really, ah never mind I don't relate to the Islamists position on this one either). Is there anyone out there who can give me a rational explanation on this issue?

Poor 'Baby Grace' (Riley)

This is my rant for today....

Every once in a while you'll see a story in the news that makes you physically ill. Myself, I usually just wish horrible pain on the people who perpetrate such things on others. Any thing that is done to hurt a child should be dealt with in medieval ways, IMO. If you abuse children in anyway, you should die a slow, horribly painful death. So to the "parents" of that little girl in Texas, F*** U, die slow! Our justice system is so screwed up though, they'll get a trial, maybe counseling, maybe some jail time in the end. But they still might some day walk the streets again, which is unconscionable. I'm not for anarchy or mob rule, but sometimes that would be more just. Drag 'em through the streets bleeding and beaten along the way by the good citizens of this nation. Stone them to death, I don't care. Either way, on this earth they'll never get what they deserve. I'd like to believe there is a special place in hell for people like that. RIP little one.

It's been a long time

Unfortunately it's been way too long since I've posted up here. I am still trying to situate after a huge relocation. I promise I will soon do much better since this blog is about to become a bigger priority. Coming soon you should see some HTML, SQL, SQR, and Oracle Forms tutorials for the software side, and since there's always politics to talk about some more commentary on that. These posts should start in the next couple days, so stay tuned.....

Britney Freakin' Spears

So far not much traffic here, but I thought I would give you all some breaking news. Well news flash, Britney Spears is naked--- see it here

Sorry, I don't have those pictures, or any others. So what's the breaking news, you ask? Well guess what Britney did today. Did she run over someone, or get divorced, lose her kids, take dope?
How in the hell should I know? Seriously people, get a life! There will be no Britney news here, EVER!

Pakistan in deep trouble

Well it looks like the American War on Terror is on the verge of having a major setback. This article gives a basic breakdown of the situation. As everyone knows, Pakistan is a major source of Islamic extremism. Not only do they have their own problems with the folks in Kashmir and elsewhere, but when the U.S. invaded Afganistan, many of those extremists (including Usama Bin Laden) migrated to the Pakistani side of the shared border. Now Musharraf thinks that cracking down on the nation is going to help curb extremism. I seriously doubt attempting to crack down on a bunch of lawless extremists is going to actually check those extremists. In reality it's tantamount to disturbing a hornet's nest. The only way Musharraf wins against the extremists is to crack down in the worst way, which is to pull all the troops into a genocidal massacre mode, which of course will turn the world and probably the rest of his own people against him. Well I don't know how he held on this long, but if he doesn't die in a bloody coup someday I would be surprised.
