A Little Bible...

You shall utterly destroy from all the places where the nations, that you shall possess, worshipped their gods, upon the lofty mountains and upon the hills, and under every lush tree.
And you shall tear down their altars, smash their monuments, burn their asherim with fire, cut down the graven images of their gods, and destroy their name from that place.... Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse.
The blessing, that you will heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today;
 and the curse, if you will not heed the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn away from the way I command you this day, to follow other gods, which you did not know.
-Re'eh Torah

I, like the Hebrew prophet Elijah before me, goes and fulfills this mitzvot, this commandment everyday. I go out to destroy and smash the idols of our society that plague us. The idols of alcohol, drugs, politicians, celebrities, material possessions, money etc. These are things which cause rot to the human soul. I believe it is my mission, my vocation to tear down idols and to build up something far grander. We cannot continue to put our faith in these empty objects which preoccupy our minds and bodies. Let's put faith in God, the creator of the cosmos, or if that is too much to ask, let's faith in humanity. To paraphrase the Christian New Testament, "God is love..." Let's build love up in our souls and spread it to the rest of our families, work places, and communities. There is no love among men, so there is no God. If we turn away from love, God, then we shall be cursed, and that is evident every time a child is neglected or abused, they are not shown love, God.  When that child is shown love, and they are fed, clothed, shown affection, they are shown God through love, thus they are blessed. We need to show God/love to each other, because if we do that, we shall transform the world. Next time you see a homosexual, try to understand them not chastise them. Or next time you see someone who is deemed a freak, or abnormal, try to reach out to them, it may bring a blessing. As a species, let's reach into ourselves and spread God to each other, lest we become cursed and destroy each other.

Bought and Paid For

I have been watching one of my favorite comedians, George Carlin, and he had a great deal many good points. He said that Americans are a bunch of fat stupid people bought off and paid for by gadgets and gizmos from a giant shopping mall. I have to agree with him 100%. First, we destroyed the enviroment by flattening it out and making way for giant metropolitan areas full of mega malls, mini malls, mini marts, and any other type of place to indulge in what ever a person would like. People then go into these shopping areas like zombies everyday, and then they go and get their fix, their fix of burgers, coffee, and every other type of cheap piece of garbage that is dabbled in front of them. It is simply amazing that these people act like this. It is amazing that people can go on living without even questioning the maddeness they consider a healthy existence, or it might not be so amazing. Throughout history, bread and circuses have been used to subdue the masses, and today is no different. Television, gadgets, fast food etc. are used to keep a fat and prosperous nation hooked like a meth addict, unable to break free from the matrix. It is true, we have been bought and sold very cheaply.

Don't think big, think small...

My new slogan is not think big, but think small. Thinking big has gotten us in a lot trouble. For example, big business has shipped millions of American jobs overseas while creating plantation like atmospheres in the form of sweatshops where they create cheaply made products on the backs of people who make cents a day. Big government killed over 100 million people in the 20th century alone! Big cities constantly harbor more disease, mental disorders, and poverty than non urban areas. The bottom line is that bigger is not better, but the truth is much more the opposite. Our future lies in small business and small government. If we continue to expand and expand our endeavors, we will swallow ourselves whole. The enviroment cannot handle another industrial revolution and the ensuing urbanization which destroys the planet. We cannot afford to expand government at rate which will surely result in the destruction of the economy and human life. We need to just start to think smaller!

Hypocrisy and Double Standards

Recently. a girl a little younger than my 23years, 19-20 years old, made a very snide remark about me dating a woman who is 10+ years older than me. She just rolled her eyes and said OOOMMMGGGG! I date an older women, period and I am very happy. It is this type of immaturity which turns me away from girls in this age range in the first place, so not like she would ever register on my radar were I single. In my experience,women in their twenties and I do not jive every well. I want to settle down in life, while most young girls just want to party, hence the types of incompatibilities which can arise. I also wonder why it is OK women her age to date a man 10+ years older than them, while sniveling at the idea a man their age would do the same with a woman. Is it insecurity, jealousy, or just ignorance? I do not understand why people feel there can be an issue with my relationship, but I do not understand most people in general. We do live in a sexist society which does allow men in their 40's-50's to date twenty something year old with an applause, however; older women are called cougars. This type of double standard thinking is just wrong, and is often done by so called "open minded liberal/tolerant" people. I just wish to be left alone and happy, I will do the same to you, but when you come biting, I will bite back twice as hard. Humanity needs a dose of enlightenment in the worst way. I believe we are no smarter than the average insect. May God deliver us from the stupidity, hypocrisy, and ignorance which defines the human race, amen.

Corporate Empires

The enemy of the people is big government and big business. The two go together like salt and pepper. The bogus free trade agreements which have been signed into law the past three decades have opened an avenue for transnational corporations to build an economic empire which has the backing of world government. These people are insidious individuals who only care about one thing, and that is their pockets. These people are the Illuminati which controls everything from behind the scenes and are the shakers and movers of society. These are the people who say they want border security but at the same time take advantage of immigrants' desperation for money by basically enslaving them in plantation like settings. People like George Soros who want to see the dissolution of international borders because it will lead to him having more money and power are the type of ilk I rave and rant about. The bottom line is that these people are part of a power elite which have passed their progeny through centuries. They have maintained power royally, and will use any means, usually law, to maintain power.

Garbage Food

We have health nuts going crazy in this country about the rising rate of heart disease and cancer, and they all seem to have a different answer as to why this is and how to get rid of it. Well, I think the answer is very simple. I recently have seen a video on Youtube where a guy holds a package of Tilapia fish up to the camera to show they put Carbon Monoxide in the fish to "preserve" it, CARBON MONOXIDE which is car exhaust! The usual suspects of cigarettes and alcohol can be blamed for a large number of cancer cases, however; there are a large number of them which can be attributed to the food we eat. I mean, we are putting CAR EXHAUST in our fish! There is also the link between red meat and cancer, but maybe the red meat itself is not to blame for the cancer, perhaps it is the hormones and other chemicals that are in the foods which are to be blamed. We do feed our cows ANIMAL BYPRODUCT feed which does cause the cows to get sick. Genetically engineered garbage is getting put onto grocery shelves everyday and people are largely unaware of it, so I have to berate the public and its power brokers like a prophet from the bible. I am just trying to put out information which can be of help in making healthier life descions. I for one am going to try and be more "Kosher" with the way I eat, or lest I end up with some type of twisted disease.

Robin Hood Was An Anarchist

Now, we all have heard the saying,"Robin Hood took from the rich to give to the poor...", but this is a complete lie and fabrication.  He did not any sort of thing. He rather took from the government and gave back to the people, which makes him sound like Ronald Reagan more so than anyone else that people like to compare him too :). Look, I will quash this myth about the Robin Hood myth. Robin Hood lived in a time when England was ruled by a king who oppressed the common person, usually a tenant farmer, with crushing taxes. Robin Hood, being a commoner, did not like the way the government treated people, so he took to the forests to rob the "tax man" when he would come to collect, and this is seen by the constant conflicts he had with the Sheriff of Nottingham, hardly someone who could be said to cooperate with government authority. In all, Robin Hood was an outlaw who fought against the government and its oppression, not someone who aided it in the confiscation of peoples' hard earned sustenance.

Generic People

Why is it that people are so cut and dry these days? I mean, everyone wears the same clothes, talks the same, eats the same etc. People do not like like to think for themselves, and I see it everyday at work. If someone comes up to my line and orders a coffee they will often ask for sugar. I proceed to ask them how many sugars they want and they say," How many is normal?" I feel like shaking people and saying THERE IS NO NORMAL, IT IS UP TO YOU! These people just like to go with the the rest of the hive, and they have no mind for themselves! I don't understand how people can be like this, however; I am considered a "freak" by society due to the fact I hate groups and group think, so maybe that is somewhat of a contributor to it. I think that corporate control of America has something to do with it. When the Mom and Pop places disappeared, the notion of specialty and individuality went along with them since corporations love to keep everything cookie cut. I just have never felt at ease anywhere, perhaps it is because I refuse to just go along with the hive. I know this sounds like a rant of a murderous maniac, but I am only blowing off some steam. I am just tired of seeing people act like robots obeying the dictates of society's puppet masters without thinking. Humanity gives me little hope,very little. It is no wonder we do so much evil to each other.

Israeli Palestinian Relations
"...negotiations 'are bound to fail sooner than later' if there is no commitment to clear terms of reference and a freeze on Israeli settlements in occupied territory."

There, in the words of a Palestinian official, negotiations will fail if Israel does not cede claims to the West Bank. Therefore, negotiating with these guy is completely useless. They will not give up until they have everything. They will not allow Israel to even LIVE ALONGSIDE them. Now, I want Israel to have control of the West Bank, but I am not calling for the expulsion of Palestinians. I want Israel to come up with some type of "Dream Act" for Palestinians who are living in the West Bank. That is, some type of amnesty which allows for Arabs living in the Holy Land to become citizens  of Israel. Israel need not expell people living in the Holy Land, but it can and should allow them to become citizens of the Israeli state. To kick out the people who have been in the area for generations would be evil and totally a disregard for human life. In the Torah, there is provisions for allowing non Jews to live in Israel such as Leviticus 19:34, "The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God." The Torah is explicitly clear as to how foreigners are to be treated, and that is with respect and dignity. I would even go further and say that the Israeli government needs to further its efforts to promote religious freedom in order to allow these Muslims to integrate into society. In all, I think Israel should have control of the West Bank but must find a way to integrate the Palestinians into Israel.

The problem with our country, and world, is not political of nature, but it is a cultural and spiritual problem. In short, we as a species have become so absorbed into ourselves and have in effect become like microcosms of black holes where we just suck everything in and implode. We have no regard for the wellbeing of others. Our only impulse is to consume and consume until we are gluttonized with alcohol, drugs, sex, and any other object which can be taken into us, it is a sad day. I am not innocent in the inoculation in all of this, but I have been enlightened by the eternal one as to how I am, and He gives me the strength to move forward. Only when we as a species wakeup and achieve a higher level of awareness and enlightment will the problems of this earth be fixed save the coming of HaMasiach the descendant of King David who is said to free the earth from suffering. I pray today on this shabbos that humanity will be able to put away bitter strife to work toward peace and goodwill for all. I will start by being the difference I want to see in the world. As I light the candles tonight and say the Amidah, I will ponder on these things.
-Kole Elyon

Good Shabbos

I am going to take a break from politics in order to broaden my self and keep my sanity. I will comment from time to time on issues that are political in nature, but how much longer can a guy go on and on about the gang we have in the white house? I will go absolutely insane if I keep going constitution, low taxes, obama..... I need to talk about things like books, movies, food, and culture. I think it is dangerous to one's health to always be caught up in controversy, thus I am seeking to implement some harmony in my life. From now on, I will like to talk about virtually anything, politics when necessary, and offer commentary. God has given me a sharp mind and ability to use it in an efficient manner, so I will do so. Bless Hashem and Good Shabbos to all!

Now many people are asking me what my name Kole Elyon means, and why I have chosen it. Well, here are the secrets behind the name. First, it IS NOT my real name, but it is only a pen name. Many famous people have taken pen names like Mark Twain, who I admire a great deal, who's real name is Samuel Clemens. Itt,  is simply a unique name to catch attention. Now, the next question is what does it mean? To start, Kole is a word play on the Hebrew word Kol. Here, a bible lexicon gives some information about the word:

Hebrew words
kol "Crack of whip / And rattle of wheel, Galloping steed / And bounding chariot! " (Nahum 3:2) (The word kol in original Hebrew has been translated contextually as both "crack" and "rattle.") voice, sound 

In Hebrew, the word "kol" means voice. I added an "e" to make the word a name.

Next is the word Elyon, which means "God most High".

In a nutshell, I have designated myself as "Voice of God Most High" I know, that is an audacious claim, but I do not literally think myself a prophet like Daniel or Isaiah. I only think of myself as a man who speaks what is right, and therefore what God would want to be said. Like the prophets of old, I scream to the hills about what is going on in the world, and only hope to attract the ears of a remnant that has some sense. In attracting the attention of the remnant of people on this earth which has some sense, I hope to be able to make some small dent in the large scheme of things.

Paranormal Fun
Next weekend, there will be the 2013 MUFON Symposium which is a big deal in the paranormal community. It is one of the largest events of the year where experts in the field of ufolology, the study of ufo's and extraterrestrials, gather to share information. Now, go ahead and say that I am wearing a tin foil hat, and I am nothing but a nut job, however; there is a great deal of evidence that backs many things that are related to paranormal phenomenon. In regard to ufo's and aliens, there is evidence for alien visitations to earth. Look up Stanton Friedman and his work on the crash at Corona, and that is the best documented ufo investigation that has ever been conducted, which will be the case the which could make you a "believer". Also, think for a second, and just contemplate the shear size of the universe. It would be arrogant to think we are the only intelligent beings that God has put in the universe with the billions of planets and stars that are out there. I will try to get to the symposium to check it out.

Zimmerman Riots

This whole trial has become a circus which needs to end soon, very soon. People are now rioting because a man who had committed manslaughter in my opinion has gotten away scott free. People have the freedom to protest guaranteed by God and the constitution, but I have the freedom to call people idiots for doing so. What makes matters worse, is that YOUR GOVERNMENT has spent TAX PAYER money on"rallies" for Trayvon, organized by the NEW BLACK PANTHERS on top of it. This whole ordeal has been political from the beginning when President Obama made the whole "if I had a son..." comment and then Al "the Instigator" Sharpton and Jesse "High" Jackson ran with this case to the end zone in order to keep their marginal relevance going. The media handling of the case has been outright disgusting with MSNBC editing 911 tapes to make Zimmerman look like some sort of racist bounty hunter, the use of older pics of Trayvon to make him look innocent, and the use of Zimmerman's mugshot expose the media and their loyalties. This episode has brought out the ugly of people and it shows we as a country are far from being"post racial". As far how Obama inserted himself into the situation, it exposed him for being the divisive and corrupt individual he is, far from being the great racial healer he portrayed himself to be.If their is anything to learn from this case it is this; there is not a lot of hope for humanity. I hope I am wrong, but I doubt it.

Zimmerman Trial

I have already posted my thoughts on this, and I would have shot Trayvon had he jumped me as well, but I WOULD NOT have followed the kid in hot pursuit. The actions Zimmerman took led to the confrontation between him and Trayvon, so he does bare some responsibility in the death of the the kid. I would have just let Trayvon go his own way if I saw him on the street and would have just let someone else deal with him, because it would be none of my business to follow this guy. Now, if Trayvon HAD BEEN breaking into a house or assaulting someone, THEN I would have intervened, but this was not the case here. I repeat, I think Mr.Zimmerman was acting in self defense, but he should have been found guilty of manslaughter. The bottom line is one guy is dead, and the other is alive, the one who followed the dead guy WITH A GUN. So, justice has not been carried out in perfection, but it would be a bigger travesty to convict this man of murder when he was acting in self defense. Zimmerman should be locked up for manslaughter, period.

Life Is Great

It is another Shabbat, and I cannot be with my community at Temple Sinai, but I am thanking God nonetheless because of the many great things I have in life. I have a steady job, roof over my head, the greatest woman on earth, food in my stomach, clothes on my back, and a sense of a direction in life. It is great to know that things are going good for the first time in awhile. A year ago, I left Cleveland after a tough breakup with really no hope. I now am getting back on my feet, and I am dating the most amazing woman. I am working now on some big plans. Stay tuned and praise Hashem!

Am Yisrael Chai!

"“Our goal is to fulfill the commandment of ‘They shall make a Temple for me and I will dwell among them,’ ...

I am a Jewish Zionist, so there it is. I support the rebuilding of the Temple, and the annexation of the West Bank to Israel. If you know me, I am not the type to hold back on punches. I think that the Holy Land belongs to the Jews not only as a religious mandate, but as a matter of historical fact. The land belonged to the Jews thousands of years ago, and it was not only until the colonial era that "Palestinians" were pushed there. You see, the Jews are only reclaiming what it is our own, our homeland. I am not going to sit back and sit on my hands and play a tongue and cheek game, but I will just bare it all. I think it is good that this organization is making plans to build a new temple by training priests, and making artifacts. The time will come when Israel will reclaim what belongs to it, it is just a matter of time.It is time that more Jews raise their voices and fists to the air screaming AM YISRAEL CHAIM! LONG LIVE ISRAEL!

Sinner's Sermon

I often get bible verse after bible verse thrown at me by Christians who wish to impart on me knowledge on how to live, and by extension their view on how life should be lived. Well, I think it is time a non-believer gave a sermon using the bible that many so called Christians and God fearing people use, that is, it is time to give them a taste of their medicine. For one, I read the bible and use it as a book of inspiration, drawing lessons from it, so I am not a desecrating heretic by the least notion. I am , however; a person drawn to the learning and spreading of wisdom to open eyes to the blind.


Jesus the Nazarene said, " will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."(John 8:32) The truth indeed shall set you free and I will lay it all to bare right now. There are ..."they(who) crush people with unbearable religious demands and never lift a finger to ease the burden.They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.(Matthew 7:15,Matthew 23:4) Indeed, these are people who preach pie in the sky until their faces are blue, but are the one's who do "everything that is hidden(that) will eventually be brought into the open..." (Mark 4:22) This is the pastor who preaches about chastity, yet sleeps around on his wife with a person in their congregation, or the church official who harps on about charity but yet siphons money from his church for an extravagant lifestyle. These are the people who are, " ....weeds (to be tied) in bundles to be burned...."(Matthew 3:12) This is a pot shot to all the sanctimonious individuals out there who like to use the bible as a guise for their own unethical ways of living, and a message to those disturbed by the behavior of individuals purporting to be God fearing people. Just know,"...your bodies are temples of the Holy Ghost..." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) and that you are free to live your life, so "stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1) Enjoy your life, do good, and be free. Be free from drugs, alcohol, and every negative bond which tries to bring you down. Do not follow holy rollers who use religion as personal gain ,but have your own relationship with the Most High.  Find a positive community to worship God in the way you chose whether it be Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or anything else. For as Ghandi said, " God is Truth, above all." And if God is truth, the searching of that truth for every individual leads them down a unique path to search for thew truth, but yet each path leads to truth, to God. Amen.

Self Righteousness

Why is it in human nature to be self righteous? I mean, the world is full of people who think they are so much better than everyone else, yet they are some of the most bitter and ugly people on this planet. It does not matter if you have a big house, expensive car, or are a holy roller, your character determines what type of person you are. I know a lot of people have a hard time seeing through fog of these things, but I can see right through the charade. I am calling these people for what they are, farce, fake, and phony. A prime example is the type of person who could be called a "people person" that calls people like me, an introvert, a freak or that we have a disorder, like schizoid personality "disorder". How or why does the desire to be left alone in quiet become a disorder? The hypocritical "beautiful people" bully people like me, and then they wonder why they snap. I just get tired of seeing these people who think they are better than everyone walk around like they are God, but they are not.

Christianity Pt.2

Dave Armstrong followed up my question with an in depth look at biblical eschatology, end of days studies:

"The subject of eschatology plays a prominent part in New Testament teaching and religion. Christianity in its very origin bears an eschatological character. It means the appearance of the Messiah and the inauguration of His work; and from the Old Testament point of view these form part of eschatology. It is true in Jewish theology the days of the Messiah were not always included in the eschatological age proper, but often regarded as introductory to it (compare Weber, Judische Theol. 2:371). And in the New Testament also this point of view is to some extent represented, inasmuch as, owing to the appearance of the Messiah and the only partial fulfillment of the prophecies for the present, that which the Old Testament depicted as one synchronous movement is now seen to divide into two stages, namely, the present Messianic age and the consummate state of the future."

The paper by Mr.Armstrong goes into a very good and detailed analysis of why the New Testament depicts the end of days happening in the near future. This does not negate the problem for me though that Jesus predicted the end of days within the first century, and it did not occur.

Christianity and Religion

I recently wrote a prominent Catholic apologist about a problem I see in the bible, and thus accepting the Christian faith. The dialogue was a simple question and answer:
  • I am an honest inquirer of religion and would like to have your esteemed opinion on a subject regarding the bible, I know that Christians use the rule of interpreting scirpture using scripture, and I have used that in my appraisal of the Christian religion and its basic doctrines. For example, in Jer.28:9 it states "...when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, [then] shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him." This is a clear reference to using a prophet's predictions to see if they are really a prophet. Now, if we apply that metric to Jesus of Nazareth where he states inMatthew 24:30-24, "Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door.Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened", there is a problem. The problem being Jesus predicted the coming of the End of Days within his own generation, but the end did not come. tHis seemsd to imvalidate Jesus by using the bible metric. I do not know if I am simply misinterpreting this verse, but I figured I owuld ask a Christian who has an extensive history with this type of thing as to how a Christian deals with this. Thank You- Kole Elyon
  • Dave Armstrong

    Navarre Bible Commentary (one of the best) interprets it like this:
    “This generation”: this verse is a clear example of what we say in the note on Matthew 24:1 about the destruction of Jerusalem being itself a symbol. “This generation” refers firstly to the people alive at the time of the destruction of Jerusalem. But, since that event is symbolic of the end of the world, we can say with St. John Chrysostom that “the Lord was speaking not only of the generation then living, but also of the generation of the believers; for he knows that a generation is distinguished not only by time but also by its mode of religious worship and practice: this is what the Psalmist means when he says that ‘such is the generation of those who seek him’(Ps 24:6)” (Hom. on St. Matthew, 77).
    It's essentially a matter of one type of biblical idiom, and apocalyptic language. The problem comes in interpreting the Bible literally in a blanket fashion. It was not intended to be: not many parts of it which utilize non-literal idiom or hyperbole, etc.
  • Kole Elyon Nicholas Poirier

    Thank You, this explains a bit, but I'm not so sure if it fully convincing. I just appreciate for you to take the time to answer my question. God Bless.

    Mr. Armstrong was great and responded quickly. I may write him again in regards to religion and life's big questions. In regards to this specific issue, it seems that the Christians play rope a dope and dance around the problem of Jesus predicting the end of the world within his own generation, and thus invalidating his claim to messiah and prophet, by saying it is simply a metaphor not to be taken literally. I find it too much of a stretch to be able to accept all the claims that Christianity makes in regards to Jesus. I will continue to ponder issues such as these, but it will take a back seat to life's other adventures.

Upcoming Works

I am a writer/storyteller by trade, and have been told by numerous confidants that I need to start doing it again, so I will do so. Several ideas are swirling around in my mind, everything ranging from a vampire/Van Helsing esque piece to a mob story are there. I know I am delaing with a wide range of content, but that is due to my complex nature and active imagination. Plus I am trying to get certified to fix computers, so my plate is quite full. I need to get my butt in gear and try to write at least 500-600 words a day to finish in a timely manner. I definitely will keep people posted.

Let's Talk Psychology

I have studied human psychology to an extent and have come to the conclusion that I hate crowds, and I mean a deep loathing. Basically, besides the feeling of being swallowed up which I hate, crowds exponentiate the normal idiocy the average individual posesses. For example, in the place I work there is a tendency for people to build into mobs to get to the counter to place an order, and that does not follow a rationale at all. I mean really, why just go somewhere to be behind someone for a long time staring at someone's ass, and on top of that KNOWING that this will be the case just further makes this phenomenon more nonsensical. Another example could be found in rock concerts, church meetings, and other venues where a person on stage could scream throw piss at the person next to you and the mob would do so. It is also documented that if an emergency occurs in a crowd then you better be scared, because the mob feels a "displaced responsibility" so each person feels that next person will take care of what needs to be taken care of resulting in nothing being done. Last but not least, it is usually to the cheer of mobs which societies are broken down and freedom taken, look at Nazi Germany. In all, I cannot get why people get into crowds.

War IS Hell

Daniel Sommers, an Iraqi war veteran, who has taken his life recently highlights the dark side of the perpetual policing of the globe our country undertakes. Why are we still policing the world when good men like Mr.Sommers has their lives taken either in battle or by the post trauma that comes from being in the battlefield. We have spent 87.2 billion dollars in the past year on overseas expenditures enacted for the defense budget and billions of countless dollars on
"foreign aid" like giving tanks, bombs, and weapons to the Islamic extremists. When will the cost of life and dollars justify the imperialistic policies of the country? Why are we fighting to "promote democracy" when all it happens to be is a chance for transnational corporations to spread their business eggs? Why are we fighting for oil companies and defense contract companies? All I am doing is asking questions that every critical thinking person should be asking, and that is all. When will we the people have enough of the military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us of nearly five decades ago?

Victory for Freedom in Egypt

"A crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood movement got underway in Egypt on Thursday with the arrest of several leading members following the military overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and his replacement by a top judge..."

There is a victory for the people of Egypt who have ousted Morsi, an Islamist dictator, in favor of a temporal military government to oversee the installation of a new government. The Muslim Brotherhood is bad news for Egypt and the rest of the world as they are nothing but a group of religious fanatics who wish to see the installation of Sharia law everywhere, including here in the US. These throwbacks instituted mobile virginity checkpoints where young girls would be dragged into vans to see if their hymens had been broken, and if they had been, then punishments of lashings and even death by stoning could ensue. The procedure to check for virginity is incredibly flawed as the hymen can be broken just by stretching certain ways. There were also rumors of Christians being crucified by these monsters,, and I can only hope those were false. In all, there is a new day for Egypt where freedom and democracy can hopefully be instituted where people's of all creeds can be respected.

Trayvon Martin


The episode of Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman has brought out the ugliest parts of America by dividing the people along racial lines, showing that the tribal nature of humanity is far from going away. The flames were fanned by the President who said that his son would look like Trayvon, and by the likes of Al Sharpton, who makes a living off of racial division. It also has not been helped by so called conservatives and white Americans who wanted Trayvon shot just because he was a young black male, adding more fervor to what was already there. The truth to me is this, and that is Zimmerman thought he'd play Clint Eastwood and then Martin retaliated when he was being pursued. Now, if I was in Zimmerman's shoes, I would have shot Trayvon. I know what it is like to jumped by a gang of thugs, and if I had a gun on me that night,I would be on the news. I think Zimmerman legitimately defended himself, alebit being in the wrong for pursuing Martin in the first place. Only a jury who gets ALL THE FACTS can determine if a crime occurred.

Gay Marriage


The fact is that the law was unconstituional. A voluntary association by consenting adults cannot be denied by the government in regards to property, insurance, taxes etc. To deny consenting adults who wish to share property and other things is to simply defy the very notion of freedom which this country was founded upon.
As to whether the partnership between people of the same sex is MORALLY right is another debate, but LEGALLY the partnership must recognized.

ObamaCare Scare

This whole debacle is turning into a giant mess already, and the law hasn't even gone into effect yet. A popular democratic senator called the law a "train wreck" saying that congress passed it without knowing what was in the 2,000 page bill with over 20,000 new regulations. This is going to get even uglier when they try to implement the law. It seems that government can seldom do the right thing whether it be the war in Iraq, Prohibition of the 1920's, or the failing drug war. By the fact that the laws needs another year to allow business to play catch up is a very dire sign, a sign which shows that the law is indeed a train wreck. I hope it is not too late to appeal it, but I think we have already gone down the tubes to far to rebound.
