This is Horrific!

Don't have time to write much about this but this is happening in Uganda as we speak. It probably is the worst thing I ever heard. Seriously,it is very very outrageous. Is it seriously that difficult to hunt down this one man who controls these militia and kill him. If Pat Robertson insists on calling for the assassination of anyone, isn't he better off associating Joseph Kony's name versus Venezuela's who's who with such a non-intelligent utterance?

Makes you wonder what you've contributed...

I came across this article. Don't know if any of you caught the interview on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumble. Anyway, this is the kind of thing you read and have to wonder if you've really exerted yourself in life. Point is, if you're looking for a little motivation, enjoy the article!

Invested in Sprint stocks

Does anyone else find it interesting that during negotiations to merge with Nextel, and right after, top executives of Sprint, CEO included; have been dumping their stocks, preparing to walk out with millions I would imagine. Makes one wonder what really is going on. Obviously, they know something we all should know. If you have Sprint stocks, now may be a good time to dump them, in case they get moved to Junk status. How are we to know why all the top notch execs are dumping theirs? We can only assume the worst...

Aahh-Life's luxuries

It was SA or it could have been Kenya. And none of us would be even a little surprised.

Lottery Fraud In Kenya _ Alert your Relatives

I called my mum and was quite surprised by some news she had. She had won some insane amount of money. All in dollars, btw. How? It came via e-mail? From whom? Some people in SA and this is an annual thing... Thank goodness I live in the Central scamming nation, aka USA. My antennae/radar was all up in distrust. I asked for the name of the company.. "Euro Afro American..." Ennter this on google and you will be shocked at what you find.. Worst case is the insane amount of people with these e-mails and they seem to have been sent to every corner of the earth. They have aliases as euro Asian... blah blah.. to fit the continent. They seem official.

My mum spoke with someone in SA who was advising her either to go there or he could send her some paperwork to open an account in SA. He says the name of the bank he works for is ABSA. Don't know if such a bank exists in SA. Don't care. My mum smelled a rat. Didnt dish out any info. I shudder to think where this was going. It scares me that they are willing to meet people face to face. I hang up with my mum less than 10 minutes ago. Advise those you know. These Kenyans are not aware of these scams and if they give out their bank information they will be wiped clean. These scam artists are in SA, Burkina Faso, the UK and Canada. It's a very well organized team of people who are going to the extent of sending you convincing evidence such as "their passport copies" I bet you they are either stolen real passport copies or manufactured passport copies.

Please get the word out before people you know get scammed.

Baby names

I guess there are a few things in life that are worth changing our baby's name for. Thanks goodness the event wasn't in some very strange named city.

Tales of Diapers and a fully grown man

Sometimes I can't think of the appropriate thing to say. This is one of those times.

War of the religions

Gaza. Israeli and Palestinian governments are abuzz with activity on the withdrawal of Israel from Gaza. Can't help but note that the Islamic Palestinians are happy to state that it's not that Israel is voluntarily giving Gaza up, it's that their Jihad has born fruit. I'm under the opinion that Israel should leave Gaza. However, I am concerned by thefact that the radical muslims are happy to note that they will continue with the violent acts to pressurize or influence other phases of this extended forever kind of disagreement that goes on between the Promised land and its environs. This truly concerns me. Myself and others with a myriad of other views on this.

More than this is the evidence that is coming back from Sudan. Through children's drawings, not solicited drawings, those of children handed paper and writing materials and left to self expression; we begin to see evidence of government aided attacks. How so? Planes, military tanks, all showing up in almost every drawing. Some show uniformed men with guns and bullets ricocheting out of them. Point being, the Islamic government is pushing out the non -Islamic community out of Sudan. On the aside, this is being called a genocide quite openly now but the ever sleeping UN is yet to respond to this.

I'm concerned about these attitudes. I have several Muslim friends and have thus been actively involved in protecting the generalization of all Muslims from a world that is quickly beginning to group them all into one category, terrorists. My problem is that great Islamic nations are not helping this fight. It seems that as far as the eccentric Muslim is concerned, there is only room for Muslims in this planet. We have two options here. Either those that recently returned from space are yet to make a big announcement that there is another planet that's all set for human invasion out there or the Muslims at large are going to live and let live. I'm completely appalled that for Gaza to "return" to the Palestinians, the generations of Israelis that have lived in Gaza have to be evicted. Why can't their be jews in Palestine and muslims in Israel? Why must the jews in Gaza leave so that Palestine will reclaim it? Greanted, the settling of the Jews in Gaza was incorrect, but do two wrongs make a right? These are 4th generation people. Where else do they call home?

I don't know when we went from me against the world to Islam against the world. I'll tell you what I observe. All the major world decisions being made lately seem to influence this war more and more. And since the US made it so that oil was turned to gold, we as the world community are at the mercy of the Islamic countries. Some are still friends of the world, but more and more are becoming... ummm... Not. Controversial point. Empowering them more, is the fact that all nuclear energy, that could free us all from the great dependency of fossil fuel, is a taboo to practice, thanks again to the all knowing American government. I think the world needs to start rethinking a lot of policies. Worst case scenarios need to be evaluated. Nuclear energy vs nuclear weapons needs to be invested in as a study and how to co-exist in this planet needs to be looked into. We as the world are going to have to go in and admit that we are beginning to tear at the seams and since these are not the days when wars were fought with bows and arrows, I sure would hate to live through a semblance of a world war III.

What would your mother say to this?

Like he seriously quit his job to do this. Wonder how Peter greeted this man at the gates of heaven.
