Bipartisan Politics in the U.S.

Why don't gravitons just flow out of all dimensions as loop particles that don't interact with dimensional walls as a sort of Hawking radiation and remove all mass/energy from the Universe?

"_____________"

You don't represent liberalism well; it would be a Harvard Lampoon at best, perhaps like G.W.'s MBA, besides the straw man technique to obfuscate corrupt government policies isn't a useful method.

Extreamist party politics simply attack, often erroneously, some other party to obfuscate issues and their own corruption, incompetence or so forth. With just two parties it works quite well, and disserves the U.S. Public effectively, although with their propensity for couch potato politics and aloof comfort perhaps the U.S. constituency deserve what they have in office.

A more literate, thoughtful, philosophical electorate would insist on better primary candidate choices, and their electibility would be more thoroughly vetted. The nation would not run a nice self-described war criminal against the oil sogoshosa heir and allow its energy and transport infrastructure to become coopted by transnationalization, nor be indifferent about 3 million illegal aliens annually roaming over the southern border while a crank trillion dollar homeland security policy busts the federal budget to the advantage of certain soshogosa.

A more effective defensive posture could have protected the nation for a tenth of the cost even if it had to run all airplane immigrants through creme de minthe sheep dip.

It is more helpful to address issues in a rational way, methodically, selectively and carefully in order to have some chance of making meaningful political analysis and consequences follow. Government should be in the public's interests, and business should look after it's own interests. A Government-Transnational Corporate Symbiosis is not inevitably in the interests of the people of the United States.

Iraq's Oil

Why don't gravitons just flow out of all dimensions as loop particles that don't interact with dimensional walls as a sort of Hawking radiation and remove all mass/energy from the Universe?

The question about what the oil of Iraq will mean to Iraqi individuals is an interesting point.

In the United States politics tend to become dominated by extreamists of the left and Neo-Corporatist right that annihilate individuality, individual and independent opinions and so forth from the political debate. Then, of course, trans genered sexual preferences meeting trans-national political corporations tend to eclipse mere independent and personally conservative political concerns too.

No one in Iraq rightly owns the oil fields presently. Perhaps the government could be said to own it, yet it is almost certain that transnational corporations will presure the Iraqi government to sell out the fields. Eventually restive Iraqi nationalists will seek to renationalize the oil fields to be on par with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The Alaskan North Slope Oil Field ownership situation is a comparable case in point. The people did get a bit with the permanent fund royalty investment, yet who will do that for ordinary Iraqi's? A permanent fund to distribute a thousand dollars a year if possible to every Iraqi citizen would be a good way to buy votes and loyalty for a new Iraqi Government.

Essentially the Alaskan Permanent Fund experiment was a modest success, yet concentrated wealth stymies diversified progress, government ownership of resources sold for profit also tends to corrupt, in partnership with Corporate kickbacking crooks of course. Governments should conserve ecosystems yet permit fair apportionment or privaization of natural resources to citizens that should inititally have some sort of 'aboriginal' right of citizenship/ownership worthy of compensation when public resources are sold.

Iraqi citizens have never had a part ownership of the oil fields historically, and certainly carpet baggers possibly supported by U.S. and British military forces will seek to dominate the profit end of the pipeline when possible.

Of course, the analysis of some Americans will tend to stop reasoning at Halliburton, Exxon, Bush, Zapata and so forth trusting that faith in the oil extraction process is morally the high ground, and that ownly the left, with support from the gist of Lenin and Castro, could possible see anything else than the Halo surrounding Secretary Rice (Rice U denied me admissio to the graduate philosophy program) and VP Cheney, or the certain divine inspiration leading Pres GWB. toward the promised oil fields and SUV's ahead, with talk of Hydrogen vehicles 'out there' enough to obfuscate the next four years of oil lethargy, infrastructure rot, and the termination of independent issue leadership and progress from U.S. politics.

The view from poverty perhaps provides a cold light that differs from the view from a continuum of comfort.

Oil & Foreign Policy Triffles

The bulletin of Atomic Scientists ran an article on Nigeria and it's prospects for a civil war. One interesting point raised in the article was the possibility that Shell Oil inflated its reserves of oil in that nation in order to cooperate with the Atcha Administration's (I don't believe that it was the Obisanjo administration (sp.) desire to have a higher OPEC production ceiling.

Nigeria has vast reserves of Luscious Sweet Crude Oil ideal for American refineries, has earned more than 250 billion on oil sales, and yet the nation is exceedingly poor.

The article also reported that the U.S. Government or U.S. Oil interests have been working against reform efforts by the Obisanjo administration to reduce corruption in Nigeria.

The American public always misunderstimates (GWB) the power of international oil companies to affect politics and international relations.

Iraq Election

GaryCGibson - 01:38pm Jan 31, 2005 EDT (#6 of 12)

Why don't gravitons just flow out of all dimensions as loop particles that don't interact with dimensional walls as a sort of Hawking radiation and remove all mass/energy from the Universe?

The Iraq election is a milestone considering the etiology of events leading to it. I offer my congratulations to the people of Iraq and the administration for bringing it off.

Yet readings recently in Ezra and Nehemia, Haggai and other minor prophets have brought to mind the intrinsic problems of political stability and transition in mesopotamia, as well as the history of Israel in being attacked by hostile neighbors as the struggled to rebuild the walls of the city of David.

It should be hoped that an American withdrawl of military forces from Iraq can proceed in ratio to the need of the Iraqi Government to have foreign troops to police their own society against the ravages of International Terrorists.

In the old testament scriptures it is recounted that God had repeatedly employed foreign armies to correct Israeli transgressions, and in turn the foreign armies were destroyed along with their governments by other foreign militaries. The history of the middle east seems a progression in teleology that continued even to the modern era to allow the word of God and opportunity for salvation through faith in His Son Jesus Christ to be heard by the masses of the world.

Even as recent of hisorical progressions as the muslim invasion of Spain stimulated a more rapid and evangelical Christian response in Europe. The Muslim occupation of the middle east retarded that civilization's development sufficiently to allow European nationalism to grow, and to withstand the incursions of the fierce mongolians.

As the faithless Soviet empire withered away, some of the gospel of Jesus Christ was able to reenter throughout the former empire. Muslim fundamentalist challenges have prompted a renewed interest in correcting decadent elements of western civilization, and brought the possibility of a nascent democratic action to the fertile crescent, albeit one challenged implicitly by an overweaning transnational Corporate force that presents greater challenges to egalitarianism than the British and the stamp act did to Bostonians.

Democracy is a political function of the union of individualism in common civil rights. Forces of socialism and neo-Corporatism oppose individualism, especially internet writing individualism, as do theocratic governments, ad hoc pharisee hegemonic neo-Corporatist trans-national corruptions, and power cliques for-themselves.

History has so many paradoxes. One of the names for ancient Jewish leaders was nasi. The Bhagivad Gita may have it's leading phoneme etymologically from an ancient Persian word for God; Baga. The Persians and Medes historically were the Aryans that invaded the Indus civilization circa 2500 BC to give a different religious leadership and caste system to those interesting Indians that has lasted nearly to the present.

Cyrus, it shouldn't be too controversial to say, did not provide for the restoration of the Jewish Temple of God soley, he also repatriated all the statues and implements of worship to all the captured and pillaged people of the empire he conquered in Babylon.

Good luck Iraq, may you have many millions of gallons of McCloskey 20 year self-priming exterior acrylic paint ahead of you (available at Wal-Mart).

Elements of Cosmology & Creationism

Psalm 75:4 "and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns. 5 Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.'"

Inflation has passed the Big Bang as a likely cosmological origin in the present era I believe. Space-time is believed to have coexistentially expanded analogous to a balloon famously.

Many people make invalid dysjunctive propositions conclusive for themselves especially regarding Christian cosmology and scientific cosmology. It is like saying the dumpster at McDonalds or Burger King, when there was a third choice of eats perhaps without a dumpster at all.

The Biblical chaos preceding the spoken word to begin order is considered by some eqv to the pre Higgs field inflationary chaos of high entropy.

The Higgs field expansion of course accelerated space and time, and the gravitational force eventual brought some of the field to contract and form into galaxies etc eventually. After 6 billion years that period was over, the Universe resumed acceleration at 7 billion years-God rested on the 7th day, and cosmologists speculate that the present expansion toward high chaos/entropy (all the hills made low, the sun going red giant, more signs and shaking in the heavens) will continue until a state of highest possible entropy resumes.

2nd Peter 3:8 "8But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

I think Peter was generalizing as best he could, the special theory was a bit beyond him at that date.

The cosmological constant, another Higgs field possibly, is thought to be the element pushing space-time outward as a sort of anti-gravity.

The Higgs field may be what give all the other mass-like particles a seemingness of mass...that is it is relation to how they interact with the Higgs particles.

Light quanta have no mass traveling at the speed of light. At the speed of light time does not exist at all. Time exists proportionally, maybe in ratio to the Lorenz transformation, to speed in any object. The faster one goes the lower the value of time one-object experiences within the special theory of relativity.

God of course isn't subject to the time dimensional effects Himself unless he choose to, because He is a spirit and certainly not interacting with a primordial Higgs field to experience time or speed necessarily within a contingent cosmos of his creation...

Brian Greene phrased the way people experience sight in an interesting way in the 2004 book 'The Fabric of the Cosmos'; he said (paraphrased) that certain waveforms (I interpolate of the M-Theory matrices strings or branes assortment) stimulate certain chemicals in the eye to give the experience of seeming to 'see' in the brain.

That interesting point should stimulate some theological and philosophical cells perhaps asleep to consider the phenomenality of the cosmos as a for-itself, as what seems to be, even within an 'evolved' paradigm, and even how 'things' seem to have 'weight' within a Higgs field and within one's own senses within the Higgs Field and spacetime possible 3brane.

Some cosmological theorists point out that the entire universe could have been created from 20 pounds of 'mass' that was hyperinflated in a Higgs Field.

20 pounds and all this exists...not exactly illusory, yet relative and very temporal. In physics theories even time is reversible or isotropic. The problem is entropy...it is a statistically modeled exemplar chaotic distribution of everything toward disorder. Time can't improbably assembly particles or mass from disorder to order.

At the beginning, somehow from extreme chaos and entropy, the Universe and space-time immediately came into being with the most concentrated possible order. The spoken word to begin, the order for the right strings and branes to vibrate or resonate, whatever God choose to will to be, and eventually human life too.

God's intervention in social reality, in order to give the sentient elements of His creation an opportunity to become reconciled unto his will, doers occur within the context, for human beings, of the cosmos which he created.

Of course there is prophetic material in the Bible, and I would not stipulate that 'theology' is the prupose of all scripture, or even most of it. http://www.hyperdictionary.com/dictionary/theology

However it is certain that God has 'superior knowledge of the cosmos and physics to humanity. It is humanity that sees through a glass darkly and is continually revising its cosmological opinions often for the better. The Bible is truthful and even its cosmological ideas will be consistent with what ultimately is.

I believe the prophets and apostles were often right about cosmological concepts even though they would have needed to have been ignorant about it from a worldly basis.

If one reads the pre-Socratics and other aboriginal traditions about creation the Bible is remarkable for what it does not say in error on the subject, and what is does have to say.

Obviously it will have ideas that were simple and appropriate for the time written, yet will not become inconsistent with an increased understanding of the truth. Plainly the Bible could not alter its content periodically to coincide with the Ptolmaic,Copernican,netonian, Einsteinian and M-Theory versions of understanding what the Universe is.

Peter said in 2nd Peter “20Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. 21For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Peter plainly said "5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water."

The Universal matter 'condensed' from a hyperinflated Higgs field into matter such as galaxies and the Earth. It resumed a higher rate of expansion after 6 billion years, when God rested.

Some cosmologists writing about M-Theory call the primordial Higgs Field and the Higgs Cosmological constant field an 'ocean'. Hydrogen is the most abundant element universally yet the 'water' Peter conceived was a simple waveform ocean given high order by God and hyperinflated into being, probably.

That isn't Earth, Air, Fire and water, it isn't the Universe on the back of a turtle, or even point particles of Democratis...its just water, or a high entropy Higgs Field perhaps stirred by quantum jitters into hyperinflation space-time for moderns perhaps.

Throughout the context of western civilization, and especially since the scopes trial, humanity has interpolated its own ideas about cosmology into the Bible to a certain extent.

It is remarkable that the history of the Bible, archaeology and scientific knowledge would at some point harmonize toward rational ideas regarding the Universe, as understanding increases generally.

The ideas about cosmology in the Bible is often quite accurate regarding something the ordinary apostles did not comprehend. Teleologically it would have been difficult for God to provide much quantum ideas to the people of the first millenium bc without altering the course of human history. I would imagine they would have long ago destroyed themselves with nuclear incineration if in possession of that sort of data for two millenia already.

I agree that the providing of superior cosmological knowledge wasn't an evident purpose of the Bible ideas...the cosmos is de trop compared to one's relation with God.

Jesus said that all things would pass or fade away, yet his words would last eternally. That is a point consistent with the Universe moving toward high entropy and perhaps Universal dispersion into formlessness of all mass, while His words as transcendent Creator are eternal and non-contingent upon the material Universe

Brian Greene wrote about entropy in another way.

Physics has no implicit time direction in many instances. Instead time can reverse in most cosmological theories, I believe. Yet obviously time in this real Universe seems to have a particular direction. Mass moves in a singuar way, and does not reverse course.

Evidentally the proximal explanation is that the physical process of entropy, or stabilization of matter in the least complicated order, is what lets time not reverse course.

Time seems to be a statistically observable process of entropy taking an originally very ordered Universe and moving it toward the most simple form. The complex does not spontaneously arise from the simple. Broken glasses do not fly off the floor and assemble themselves into a drinking glass...etc.

Greene in the Fabric of the Universe' used Tolstoys 1000 page book 'War and Peace as an example.It takes a lot of order and arrangement to put the book together. If one takes the binding off the book and tosses it int the air letting the pages fall where they may, there isn't much of a chance that time will reverse and the pages reassemble themselves in order.

The Universe had much order to start with miraculously. Even in recurrent membrane theories or pre-creation theories the Universe has parts that are in a very high entropy (simple) form. Where does the order so concentrated even in a hypothetical singularity come from?

When the Universe goes through a hyper-expansion because a Higgs Field has experienced quantum fluctuation as a consequence of their quantum waveform nature of probability, it has mtremendous and most intense order, or low entropy.

The hyper-inflation continues for a part of a second, and for 6 bilion years gravity collects mass from the Higgs Field residue into galaxies and stars, planets and so forth. After 6 billion years the background Higs Field and its anti-gravity pushes space-time to accellerate faster and faster.

To simply that point-after 6 ('days') billion years God rested.

The Universe is expending its original endowment of masss order and ow entropy increasing to a state of high entropy. If God doesn't intervene to cut it short, the Universe may expand outward for a trillion years reaching farther to high entropy and low energy, until t is perhaps just a simple Higgs Field with no mass at all. Iraq may have peace by that time.

The interesting point that Greene made about the possibility that the Universe is a product of random quantum waveform fluctuations that instantaneously popped the Universe into existence as it is, is that if that were so even memory could not be trustworthy much less theories of the past and 'scientific' evidence. Greene discounted that possibility, for some reason I can't remember.

GWB's Tortilla Reform

GaryCGibson - 10:17am Jan 31, 2005 EDT (#51 of 51)
Why don't gravitons just flow out of all dimensions as loop particles that don't interact with dimensional walls as a sort of Hawking radiation and remove all mass/energy from the Universe?

"Baga' was an ancient Persian name for God (p.145 Ezra and Nehemia-Tyndale series) familiar to Jews of the 5th millenium bc. Jerusalem has been reformed many times through construction and conquest over the millenia. President Bush has some ideas about reform too...

Reform is at the top of the Presidential to-do list. The highest placed leaker on the Druplican Tri-Commission has mentioned the existence of an acrostic versification plan that is the unseen yet formidable mover and shaper of the administration's next 3.78 years.

Mr. Bush has already contemplated the letter 'T' to stay ahead of what the opposition might expect next. The high, confidential source suggests that Tortilla reform is the centerpiece of the policy. Mr. Bush has been interested in Tortilla Reform since twice being denied admission to the U.T. Law School. On the essay portion of a qualifying exam he suggested that torts could be improved with jalepino sauce, and the second time suggested the novel reform of the ingenious addition of barbeque sauce, beans and guacamole.

Presidential advisers in the Druplican Tank have corrected the President's course to 'Tort Reform' being centered upon 'Torture abbreviated'. Torture reform in the administration to delete quaint objections has more utilitarian value for the White House presently than tortillas in eliminating the threat to Global Corporate consolidation.

'T' is an important element of the acrostic to the President; he knows it is right after 'S' for Social Security Reform, and just before 'U' for Upper Class Tax Cuts.

The President assigned his Ambassador to Mexico to study transnational tax cuts for the wealthy in Mexico and the United States. The ambassador just became engaged to one of the 400 wealthiest people on Earth, a Mexican beer heiress, and more tax cuts on both sides of the border may be ahead. Yet the President is still fixated upon the letter 'T'.

On the Torture Reform plan the President has drawn upon the advice of his fellow southerner Fidel Castro. Our fearless leader, after sufficient schooling, is reported to have said "Let it be said that in America, as in Cuba, justice does not pay".

Does the profit motive work in business, environmental reform, medicine or real estate? Why should it work in law, the commission queried?

President Bush wants to keep tortures cheap to protect business from consumers seeking justice. Eventually business too will have it's profit incentive's 'reformed' and capped to protect consumers from evil MBA's with latent profit motives.

When public defender wages are the maximum allowed to lawyers seeking punitive and compensatory damages caused by corrupt businesses that have wreaked havoc, mayhem and lifetime personal deformations on consumers, illegal aliens arguing for 2.50 an hour can take up the cause of public advocacy against the generous and unfairly inhibited Neo-Corporate government-business benefaction.

Transnationalism & U.S. Foreign Policy

Gary C Gibson - 05:33pm Jan 26, 2005 EDT (#14 of 14)

The U.S.A. is an aspect of transnational capitalism amidst a storm of other transnational entities vying for power. Nations are blamed, locals are denied rights, borders are corrupted, yet the investors and owners are transnational.

Some have tried to form a maslowian pyramid of 'national brehaviors', and macro-ecomnomists have written of various forms of investment strategies for nations at various stages.

The notion that the U.S.A. is still in some sort of a 19th century formation is quaint.

WHat the nation could do, if people actually cared about politics in an informed way, would be to insist that the government represents the national interest first instead of trans-national business or socialism, and that it support a balanced budget, investment in trade deficit reducing tech businesses, and energy independence tech businesses.

It cannot have an either/or false alternative of transnational capitalism or socialism, isolationism or globalism. Free trade and global businesses will exist, yet the government must encourage alternative and domestic fuels that eliminate trade deficits, and favor businesses that prosper Americans first. The government would stimulate an ecponomic maintainence infrastructure in pernnial revolution to remain out of debt while allowing the transnationals to compete for-themselves.

When the nation was formed of course broadcast media did not exist, if it had it would have been severly restructed because of its incalculably destructive affect upon civil liberties. It is a monster that snuck through the keyhole of first amendment rights when print and interpoersonal talk was all that was technically possible.

At one time human beings were the limit of technology and social interaction, and thats what the constitution was about. A print media was entirely accountable, and no citizen ever had to be concerned about a broadcast media interference or social and poltical organization inimical to individual rights and opportunities, especially one owned quite often by transnationals.

The U.S.A. is still treated by some as if it were a 19th century political power in a fairly simple to understand formulation, yet it is obviously not as simple as that.

On the subject of spooks and their memoirs...they always make good reading, and more should be written. Peter Wright's book 'The Spycatcher' for instance, was very fine reading. I can imagine what a book contract advance a 'The True Story of my Friend Os' would get if writtewn by his personal bodyguard and travel planner. What a book!

How should we preserve history when those who were there are gone?

Seems an odd question. I knew a lady named Ida Hoss with an Aushwitz stamp on her wrist, I don't suppose I would ever forget that.

The DNC has a candidate running for the top named Roemer http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/12/14/dnc.chair/ . When Hitler was sent to infiltrate the German Workers Party by the Army, he was soon supported by another Army infiltrator that was a financial specialist named Roehm http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERroehm.htm .Together, Hitler and Roehm reformed the GWP and made the Nazi party out of it. Roehm led the murderous, radical SA with the butches that made the Nazis a popular German leading party cutting and slicing up Hitler's opponents. The German Army became so afraid of the SA that Hitler had to purge them before being given the reins of Army power.

I find the Historical parallel interesting, as the Democrats in the U.S.A. are somewhat like the GDSP, yek who remembers or conjectures about such egregiously superficial similar historical parallels?

Time is said to be the direction of entropy Universally. The complex dissociates into the simple, the molecules of ice sculpture break down into water evenly placid,or perhaps vaporized into clouds.

For a time interesting books such as my Waveform Politics; Equilibrium Pattern Volume 4 http://www.lulu.com/content/79435 keep tight collections of internet essays together even if few copies are sold. Ordinary recollections of an individual are edited and compiled into good reading and given an ISBN number and eventually a copy is sent off to the U.S. Copyright Office. Perhaps it will be out in CD and sent on an intergalactic space mission one day. I hope people remember, it is alcohol and broadcasting that could wipe out the persistance of memory, I think.

Future of War on Terrorism

Gary C Gibson. - 12:24pm Jan 14, 2005 EDT (#68 of 443)
John 10:16 "I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd."

It is very difficult to predict the ' war on terror'. The term is perjorative of course, the cost for the activity incommensurate with long term fiscal responsibility, and its effectiveness dubious at best. Certainly it can employ many Texans and oil field personnel affilliated with the Bush/Cheyney/Rice axis of enterprise.

The prophet Nahum wrote in the 7th century B.C. of the capture empire of Assyria reared behind a military genius to rule Babylon, Judah, Israel, Egypt etc. for a while ... (Contemporary English version translation)

Nahum 2 Nineveh Will Fall 1Nineveh, someone is coming to attack and scatter you. Guard your fortresses! Watch the road! Be brave! Prepare for battle!

2Judah and Israel are like trees with branches broken by their enemies. But the LORD is going to restore their power and glory.

3Nineveh, on this day of attack, your enemies' shields are red; their uniforms are crimson.

4Their horses [a] prance, and their armored [b] chariots dart around like lightning or flaming torches.

5An officer gives a command. But his soldiers stumble, as they hasten to build a shelter to protect themselves against rocks thrown down from the city wall.

6The river gates [c] fly open, and panic floods the palace.

7Nineveh is disgraced. The queen is dragged off. Her servant women mourn; they sound like doves, and they beat their breasts in sorrow.

[d] 8Nineveh is like a pond with leaking water. Shouts of "Stop! Don't go!" can be heard everywhere. But everyone is leaving.

9Enemy soldiers shout, "The city is full of treasure and all kinds of wealth. Steal her silver! Grab her gold!"

10Nineveh is doomed! Destroyed! Her people tremble with fear; their faces turn pale. [e] 11What happened to this city? They were safer there than powerful lions in a den, with no one to disturb them.

12These are the same lions that ferociously attacked their victims, then dragged away the flesh to feed their young.

13The LORD All-Powerful is against you, Nineveh. God will burn your chariots and send an army to kill those young lions of yours.

You will never again make victims of others or send messengers to threaten everyone on this earth.

Nahum 3 Punishment for Nineveh The LORD said: 1Doom to the crime capital! Nineveh, city of murder and treachery,

2here is your fate-- cracking whips, churning wheels; galloping horses, roaring chariots;

3cavalry attacking, swords and spears flashing; soldiers stumbling over piles of dead bodies.

4You were nothing more than a prostitute using your magical charms and witchcraft to attract and trap nations.

5But I, the LORD All-Powerful, am now your enemy. I will pull up your skirt and let nations and kingdoms stare at your nakedness.

6I will cover you with garbage, treat you like trash, and rub you in the dirt.

7Everyone who sees you will turn away and shout, "Nineveh is done for! Is anyone willing to mourn or to give her comfort?"

Nineveh's Fate Is Sealed 8Nineveh, do you feel safer than the city of Thebes? [f] The Nile River was its wall of defense.

[g] 9Thebes trusted the mighty power of Ethiopia [h] and Egypt; the nations of Put [i] and Libya were her allies.

John 10:16 "I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd."

... continued at Nahum 3:10(from the Contemporary English Version) 10But she was captured and taken to a foreign country. Her children were murdered at every street corner. The members of her royal family were auctioned off, and her high officials were bound in chains.

11Nineveh, now it's your turn! You will get drunk and try to hide from your enemy.

12Your fortresses are fig trees with ripe figs. Merely shake the trees, and fruit will fall into every open mouth.

13Your army is weak. Fire has destroyed the crossbars on your city gates; now they stand wide open to your enemy.

14Your city is under attack. Haul in extra water! Strengthen your defenses! Start making bricks! Stir the mortar!

15You will still go up in flames and be cut down by swords that will wipe you out like wheat attacked by grasshoppers. So, go ahead and increase like a swarm of locusts! [j] 16More merchants are in your city than there are stars in the sky-- but they are like locusts that eat everything, then fly away.

17Your guards and your officials are swarms of locusts. On a chilly day they settle on a fence, but when the sun comes out, they take off to who-knows-where.

18King of Assyria, your officials and leaders sleep the eternal sleep, while your people are scattered in the mountains. Yes, your people are sheep without a shepherd.

19You're fatally wounded. There's no hope for you. But everyone claps when they hear this news, because your constant cruelty has caused them pain. footnotes from Bible Gateway-Contemporary English Version " Nahum 2:6 river gates: Nineveh was protected by a moat filled with water from the nearby Tigris River. Nahum 2:7 sorrow: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verse 7. Nahum 2:10 faces turn pale: Or "ashes cover their faces." Nahum 3:8 Thebes: In 663 B.C., the Assyrian King Ashurbanipal captured this Egyptian city, which seems to have been built with protection similar to that of Nineveh. Nahum 3:8 was its. . . defense: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text. Nahum 3:9 Ethiopia: The Hebrew text has "Cush," which was a region south of Egypt that included parts of the present countries of Ethiopia and Sudan. Nahum 3:9 Put: A region in Africa, possibly part of the present country of Libya. Nahum 3:15 locusts: A type of grasshopper that comes in swarms and causes great damage to plant life."

Nahum was accurate. He'd of been a wiz at predicting U.S. Security if interested. Security futures of the U.S.A are tough cookies to schedule/predict; certainly the military is mercenary serving neo-Corporatist interests, the borders are porous and economic independence outsourced. America has some similarities to those of the late stages of the Roman Empire. etc. The taxpayers will pay for the securtity needs of Global Oil interests until they are so downsourced and replaced that chaos is cheaper, maybe.

DOLLARBILL, "The Future of the War on Terror" #71, 14 Jan 2005 12:28 pm

The political objectives of neo-Corporatism and Global socialism, Muslim Empire and Globalist power all need to negate individual liberty and nationalism, or local political democratic self-determination. Environmentalism is perhaps the only necessary transnational political item. Broadcast power is an aspect of the conjunction of mass control. See Ortega Y Gasset's 'Revolt of the Masses for a pre-world war two security analysis, and possibly 'Animal Farm'.

Bush’s Inaugural Address & Next 4 Years

Matthew 3:10 "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."

This post is just a small notation for an experience I had recently riding from New Mexico to Texas. I'd made it as far as Socorro and was going nine miles farther south to turn off on 70/138 to Roswell. I missed the turn, went a mile farther downwind, saw the sign going in the opposite direction, crossed the meridian on I-25 and immediately a stretch tie came loose and wrapped around the inside back wheel. I fixed it and rode on to discover in San Antonio New Mexico that it is actually 158 miles approx. to Roswell instead of the 70 miles I'd believed it was. I turned around again to ride back to the freeway to go south to Las Cruces instead. 4 spokes snapped on the inside of the freewheel...end of the bike journey suddenly. The back wheel looked like it had been run over by a car.

I hitchhiked to Socorro New Mexico, and late at night, being hungry and broke, thought I'd try MacDonalds trash dumpster for food to eat. Having worked at Burger King long ago I knew that fast food restaurants toss out perfectly good food when it's staging time is up. I looked for that bag and found it.

I ate a large hamburger patty and two french fry container fulls and walked to put up my tent some miles away. What a night! I cannot believe how quickly one can get food poisoning. Years ago I ate a too old can of spam and became quite nauseous and delerious in Houston while working at that Burger King. This time I must have vomited four quarts of material that had the nature of removing foul waste. Diarehha continued through the night (this is my food poisoning post). Then, about three am, after the copious emmission of bodily fluids and semi-solids was mostly done, the cold chills and headache and dizzyness began. It was quite a remarkable experience I hope not to do again. That was basically the only time I'd ever tried eating a non-boxed item from a trash container...it should be the last. Yet with the Bush administration around for another four years, its difficult to say.

Its so nice that they are spending 140 million on the inauguration, almost half as much as on tsunami relief. Its important to keep things in proper perspective regarding values.

I still believe that neo-Corporatism isn't much different that any other sort of authoritarianism such as Fidel's. Global Corporate and the Fawkers are too sides of a global coin that will pimp America to shape it's maximum profits. That's all that matters, perhaps the President will be rapsodic in addressing the wonder of the nation's future during his second or .43 mag administration.

Matthew 3:10 "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."

William F Buckley has had a long and distinguished career writing from the right, or perhaps as a classical liberal supporting essentially the values of the founders. Notably, some of the lofty ideas that he and Condi Rice too, have expressed in recent days, coincide with the second inauguration of President Bush...

Thinking Out Iraq by William F. Buckley

I enjoy stratospheric and politically inspirational writing of course, yet the main point of political writing must be purpose A company like Forbes may be a but kisser of the wealthy, and yet disserve democracy. It is possible to lose sight of the sky because of oppressive occlusions of power.

Mr. Buckley in analyzing the Iraq mission concluded that withdrawing from Iraq would be dishonorable, and yet he also decided to venture the opinion that the withthdrawl from Vietnam was also dishonorable. He surely should know that Richard Nixon expressed the contrary opinion, and that instead it was a 'peace with honor'. He could ask Henry Kissinger if he needs more proof.

Democracies work when individuals have real rights that aren't violated by oppressive international crooks at the U.N., by neo-Corporatist ad hoc political structures that repress free speech and support a trans-national political structure in the United States, and when individuals are not massified and commodified through broadcast media into a classlessness because of stupidity. That is, their psychological conditioning is more important than external, empirical political facts.

In this last election, in which the Democratic Party nominated and ran a gentlemen that professed at one time to being a war criminal, and an hysterical doctor from Vermont/the homo state, the American public essential presented the appearance of being of weak character in not insisting that a better, and fundamentally more financially sound, resolute, intelligent leader run for the office. They elected the greatest nepotistic beneficiary in U.S. history I would guess. Hillary Clinton would be a tight second place finisher in that race if she is elected one day. In a decaying democracy, in which a trans-national neo-Corporatist neo-authoritarian is increasing its power, those sorts of things happen. Active, live, fervantly inspired politicians don't run. They are brainwashed, and can't comprehend that trans-national neo-Corporatist power structures effectively subvert U.S. nationalism, pervasively.

Mr. Buckley's notion about Iraq was mistaken. The U.S. had a moral obligation in that it allowed Democide to continue while Saddam Hussein was in power and sanctions prevailed. Now the U.S. has no moral obligation to Iraq. It does have an obligation to provide some security for the Iraqi's that have worked with the U.S. toward creating a 'democracy' in Iraq.

Ms. Rice's opinion about Iraq seems prima facie correct-the U.S. will stay in Iraq until the Iraqi Government can provide its own security. Yet that is a long a twisted road perhaps, in expecting the Shia and Sunni to eixist within an elected way together. In Northern Ireland that wasn't so simple even between Prots and Caths, in Iraq there are many more lunatics, with no comprehension of democracy, and with many military explosives stockpiles. A more realistic Iraq policy may be required to more directly allow the U.S. to disengage with a shorter time paradigm.

The political situation in the United States does not seem good. The populace is incresingly brainwashed by Global Coporate media, the small cities become full of trans-national Corporate stores, and the political issues such as national energy and transport independence are simply degraded as would be intelligent, nationalist political writing. Each party (D & R) is a flip side of a trans-national coin.

Modern power corrupts from a distance, nihilating independence

2005 Inauguration-Bush Agenda

GaryCGibson - 11:42am Jan 21, 2005 EDT (#32 of 88)
Matthew 3:10 "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."

I amsomewhat disappointed that the SF station decided to remake 'Battlestar Galactica' instead of producing an original of 'Alterwall Objectives' http://www.lulu.com/content/52396. Yet freedom sometimes means fullfilling Global Corporate objectives, and individualsocial reality may be supplanted by celebrety reality.

It does seem dubious that an American Global Corporate concept of 'freedom' will inspire many of the muslim world to revolt for democracy, when Globalism is antipathetic to liberty in the U.S.A. as people are degraded,pimped and replaced by illegal foreign workers, when the last armed militia of Boston will have his right to own a rifle and freely assemble to repulse the inavading Chinese Commando Army from Mexico taken away...yet President Bush will seek to bring reform and 'freedom' to Iraq.

Something must be done with Iraq,certainly, it is as confused as the state of liberated women divorced from thee traditional society that to readily supports wrong causes and is too easily exploited. Yet what is the proper role? Can the happy go lucky 'freedom' of U.S. borrowed prosperity provide clarity to the region?

The United States can perhaps afford some more bombs and lives, yet it is very far into foreign held debt and isn't likely to provide much in the way of largesse or bribes for the masses. Puiblicity and pr for the U.S. masses is best. Even social security for the young may be trimmed. The administration may want to get blood from the turnip to spend (thats it's style), and diverting youth contributions to the private sector might free up some dollars.

The real problem with social secuirty is that retired workers have a median income 10,000 dollars higher than working people. Sure the world war two generation deserves it, but the following don't. There needs to be a means test to the effect that social secuirty can be received only if it won't raise the retired person's income above 2/3rds that of working people. Presently social security has become like a Russian appanage Empire with succeeding generations getting a smaller piece of land each-as did the princes of Kievian Rus when they became too numerous.

Matthew 3:10 "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."

... Iraq's prospects for 'peace' are of course the main point of the second term of the administration, beside carpet bagging oil profits where possible and schilling for expanded OPEC power along the Asian littoral. Not since Angor Watt was a Phallic Cult Temple in its prime has an administration been so devoted to causes against its best interests, perhaps naively.

The first Arabian state began about 2000 BC in the highlands of Yemen, so the almanac reports for this brief commentary about interesting facts of the Middle East that the administration may want to consider for its second term.

Yemen of course claims Abraham as its founder, I seem to remember reading. Os Bin's family is also from Yemen originally.

Later on, in the first century, Axum http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~dee/CIVAFRCA/AXUM.HTM was founded by Arabs from the Yemen region in Ethiopia. It became the first Christian civilization in Africa and was the important Red Sea power until its demise in 1100. It was very influential in Yemen. The expansion of Islam cut off its ties with Byzantium.

Until the end of the Ottoman empire Iraq was subject to Sunni rule that was the official religion. The Sunnis were draconian and enslaved even even Christians for military service. After the Turks were done. the British moved in, and provided a paternalistic royal guidance until various aborted starts at Iraqi independence.

Saddam Hussein was a secularist Baathist that sought simple to use terror ala Stalin to create a secular state.

There is a vast, historical schism between Shiite and Sunni in the Middle East. The Shiia of course demand a ruler descended from Muhammed, historically. The Shi'a are also historically affiliated with Iran. Persians, Parthians and Sassanians have ruled Iraq or southern Iraq for much of its history. To change the political orientation in Iraq is to affect the region from Pakistan to Africa.

I haven't much time left for this outline.

One must wonder if the Kharjirites might been historical model for adaptation by Iraqis http://www.answering-islam.org/Gilchrist/Vol1/9d.html.

Certainly the association of Sufism with Sunnism has had important consequences in the formation of terrorist cults and radical political movements, I should think. Is Al Zarqawi a Sufi, does Os Bin twirl about like a dervish sometimes when in need of inspiration?

Would the Almohad's dynastic structure be a goal for the Sunni terrorists http://www.bartleby.com/65/al/Almohads.html in Iraq? Does VP Cheney know or care that part of the Iranian reason to develop nuclear weapons is the 1980 Iraq attack upon it and the ensuing casualties?

Cortez liberated a vast portion of North America from the human sacrifice cult of the Aztec's in 1519, yet was the ensuing 'freedom' beneficial for North American people's?

The truly liberating step the administration could pursue would be to replace oil with solar and wind generated electricity for home use and electric power for cars and pov's. It would work against the expansion of Muslim oil influence around the Asian rim, that can buy allegiance of kneeling to Allah five times a day for a tank of gas.

Maybe Europeans have a prejudice against Kurdish State formation because Saladin was a Kurd. Yet a nagid-or charismatic leader, may be what some Iraqi's want to lead their country through the chaos ahead. Charismatic leaders are usually only go for-themselves-historically speaking, and they cannot implement long-lasting reform. King David, Solomon/Rehoboam and the breakdown of Israel was an early example.

Yes, vague talk about 'freedom' for Global Corporate profits is a nice thing, and lots of soma for the masses! Yet it is a troubled world, and the leader means well. Good luck, and balanced the budget while reducing the federal debt and staying out of ANWR in the second term!

Matthew 3:10 "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."

More time for Persian history research could bring out more of the nation's current political psychology perhaps. I just recently had food poisoning, and partial airway blockage that still continues. Evidently aspirating vomited French fries can be a substantial airway difficulty. I am not that expert on the airway. Food is meant to go down-not up.

Now, if I knew I might be in a vomit producing environment, I'd eat foods like applesauce that could not become serious lumps in the nasal or lung regions. Perhaps doctors can rinse out such passages with water, yet I'd not stick my head in a bucket and breathe some upside down to try.

At any rate...Persia...

I believe that Persians ruled Southern Iraq basically for about a thousand years from Cyrus in maybe 549 bc through the Sassanid until the end of the Parthian Empire in 650 or so, when I'd guess they became Muslimized.

That’s a serious national history broken by Alexander the Great's military invasion of course, yet it was a time of immense cultural identity. The Persians were the Aryans of yore. The Medes and Persians were probably the invaders of the Indus civilization that established the caste system lasting until the present, sort of. Yet glory fades...

While the Umayyad people still ruled in Spain, the Abbasid established itself at Baghdad. The Shi'a schism arose. Between 700 and 1000 approx. Iraq has a somewhat more mixed history, yet in 1100 very approx. the Seljuk Turks invaded.

I believe the Turks and later the Mongols then again the ottoman empire ruled Persia right up until a Shah staged a coup in 1921 while the Brits had defeated the ottoman power in Arabia. The Turks had been Sunni's, and while Persia had been occupied, orientalized and such it was the Shi'a faith that had given the people a sense of national identity, such as they had.

I would imagine the Shi'a infrastructure had developed quite a loyal following amongst the legends of the people. Perhaps the nation would have evolved further political egalitarianism in the 20th century if it had been a kinder century...who knows.

The United States of course supported a revolutionary son of Shah later on perhaps snubbing the popular opinion. As the Iranians had already had half a millennium approx of oppressive foreign rule, perhaps that created antipathy toward another foreign power that sought to oppress them so they thought, and perhaps second rate their popular Shiism with foreign secularism.

When the United States lost in Vietnam in created lots of changes. In 1980 or so the Iranian revolution brought about the hostage taking at the U.S. embassy. In Libya Khaddafi had helped engineer the 72-oil embargo, which was the second major financial world shift of the century (or third economic revolution) with nationalization of the oil fields. He believed Muslims should retake Sicily and Spain.

When the United States supported Saddam Hussein in his 1980 war with Iran that caused millions of casualties, it must have enhanced Iranian distrust of the U.S. and perhaps Sunni too. Now VP Cheney with no thought of Iranian oil fields probably, is concerned about the Iranian nuclear threat. Proliferation of nukes is definitely I danger, yet its worth knowing why Iran might want nukes to help express their political 'freedom' from foreign 'tyranny'.

One may hope the forthcoming Iraq elections will find a popular Iraq Sunni-Shi'a democracy emerging, without anarchy too long or a renewed Sunni hostile posture to Iran's Shi'a perhaps supported by administration pro-oil sentiments. Life and history could be better.

A commentary on Habakkuk makes interesting reading.

UTLAKE, I have another thought on the subject.

Of course I'm not a supporter of the young pioneer Stalinist brainwashing sort of education in America, and especially not at adult university level. Yet it it would be fine if more non-western history were taken by people that don't read much history anyway. The history of non-western violence and cruelty is remarkable. It is not as utopian as some seem to believe.

The Bible has solace for the believer.amidst a human history that demonstrates people are well accomplished at evil in many traditions.

Theology and Humanity #2

Gary Gibson's weblog is at... http://www.Lulu.com/GaryCGibson

It is difficult to associate worldly disasters with the will of God. Each human being has a difficult enough time trying to do what's right for themself if they have the wisdom to try.

The Prophet Amos did bring to society some concept of God's vexation and wrath with social conduct periodically...for example...

Amos 1:3-2:16 (King James Version) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

3Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:

4But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad.

5I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.

6Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:

7But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:

8And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.

9Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:

10But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.

11Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever:

12But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah.

13Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:

In reading a little book on the minor prophet Nahum (there were 12 'minor' prophets in the Old Testament of the Bible) in which Nahum prophesied the destruction of the Assyrian Empire and the liberation of the Jews from Captivity (that followed a few decades later) the point was made by the exegesist that God expects humanity to have trust in him. That means that even large disasters may be intended to bring about plain, blind faith in God.

lands Alexander and Caesar had owned
sending his ships with the faithful warriors

Faithful to the One true God

wandering in the Sinai of Moses they had not met Jesus
Son of God, co-eternal with the Spirit
Three persons of One True God

The advance stopped at Tours France
The invasion stopped at Sicily and Tenados
A Catholic Crusade reconquered Iberia
and sent Richard the Lionhearted to Jerusalem
While Constantinople endured until 1450
The Muslim advance over the anti-Taurus mountains
and recultured Anatolia from Troy to Trebizond
Until the Ottoman rulers were stopped at Wien
People of faith met at the waters edged
the Sea of Marmara to the Strait of Gibralter
encountered ideas of people allegiant to God
or the political ideas of semi-theocratic states
that continued as the protestant reformation and nationalism grew
with a renaissance that sent Catholic explorers
to discover new lands followed by pilgrims and puritans to develop a new world
as the north shore lost faith,
and the south shore slipped without Christ.

It has been written in recent cosmological theory that the Universal expansion may have started with an initial 20 pounds of matter extremely compacted. At that point, within an existing space-time matrix perhaps, or within a non-spacetime background that is unimaginable, quantum uncertainty 'jitters' within a virtual Higgs field paradigm of quantum probability wave, an expansion or hyperinflation of space-time began producing the Universe.

In a version of cosmological theory in which strings and no-branes arise to create a ten-dimensional 'Universe' of which the experienced universe is a three-brane within a 10 dimensional string and no-brane matrix, the Universe emerges from primeval chaos or a high entropy condition. Time is the direction matter statistically passes in going from a highly ordered to a maximally disordered state.

At the beginning and end of the Universe (in a trillion years or so if inertia proceeds as it is naturally) a high entropy or maximum disordered condition exists (chaos), with a word it is organized into a Higgs Field and space-time expansion. Transition time epochs occur (such as the resumed Higgs Field cosmological constant Universal expansion rate after 6 billion years from time zero). The Higgs Field is a sort of primeval Universal 'ocean'

Genesis 1

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

. From just 20 pounds perhaps the entire Universe was created. The cosmological constant or underlying Higgs 'Ocean' may be what all the strings or particles interact with to seem to have mass or 'weight'. Human beings accord themselves tremendous substance in some ways, and importance too sometimes. They will say such quasi-theological points such as "if God were real he would not allow sufferring in the world, evil would not exist and one could drink vast quantities of the ale for free with no time lost in recovery from hangovers"or " "If God were real little children could not suffer" . Yet God created the entire Universe in one physical theory, from just 20 pounds. He can let any phenomenal evil occur, allow his creation to become corrupt attempting to go it's own way from the initial Satanic rebellion, and still save those whom would trust Him.

Certainly humanity should have peer values to recognize fundamental democratic rights of individuals. Governments should not wreak evil upon poor citizens trying to help themselves in the free market. Governments should not utilize cheap-shot labels such as 'menshevik' to eviscerate social earnings opportunities.Governments should not be Satanic.

God has the power to know what it is each human being experiences, of any age, within this bootstrap epiphenominal Creation of a Cosmos, and still bring the Indians/Natives/Created over the goal line of salvation as it accords with His purposes.

Physicists generally find no physical necessity for field theories to have a direction of time...that is it can run forwards as well as backwards with equal ease. It is simply a statistical course of events that the singularity or membrane at which space-time began its hyperinflation was extremely well ordered to start with. The Universe could randomly dissociate itself from the lowest entropy status of origin over billions of years toward higher entropy (more disorder) and spend some order on the existence of humanity on the way toward absolute disorder in time.

Time is the hour glass of order to disorder...the bottom hald is broken and lets everything pour away. Trust in God is the way, Jesus Christ is the truth, to associate with God instead of the material phenomenon of the cosmos that eventually brings everyone to a wave of surrealistic dimensions.

Insulation and Cosmology

Gary Gibson's other weblog is at... http://www.Lulu.com/GaryCGibson

Some insulation installers just stuff the material in and perhaps hold it in place temporarily with string. Alternatively a plastic vapor barrier can keep insulation in place until the sheetrock or whatever goes up.

Most insulation installers don't use tin foil backed materials. If the width is cut rightly it will also stay in place until the wall material is completed.

Incidently, there is a good new book by Brian Greene from 2004 named 'The Fabric of the Cosmos'. It reviews the special and general theory of relativity following a review of Newton's classical mechanics, it goes on to string and brane theory and even loop quantum gravity.

One of the interesting points in recent speculation is that space-time may not actually exist. Cosmological theories generally require a 'background' of space-time in which the mass and energy happen. In some of the newer theories such as holographic cosmology what seems to be space-time may be just illusory.

I appreciated the parallels of some of the inflaton theory of creation to the order expressed in the first couple of chapters of Genesis.

Big Bang theory is now basically obsolete. It seemed like a bang in the late 20th century such as might happen in empty space, yet now it seems more like a ballon that inflated fast creating space-time with it simultaneously. After 7 billion years it was mostly formed, and then a fast cosmic accelleration resumed.

God of course rested after 6 days/time periods.

It is unknown what happened before the inflation...some believe a little corner of space-time experienced quantum jitters and a Higgs Field occurred (let there be light following the spoken word). It could be a Higgs Field that is again accellerating the expansion of the Universe. Or it could be that the Universe is just a 3-Brane appearance within an 10 dimensional Universe, and that vibrating stings or zero-branes carry the tune. God knows the score.

Perhaps if some aspects of developer greed had not pushed dwellings so close to the beach some lives would have been spared in the tragedy of the tsunami. If people lived a mile inshore perhaps the main force of the wave would have been spent before reaching the tourist ghettos.

"And is there a general trend in the way the U.S. approaches incarceration?"

"And is there a general trend in the way the U.S. approaches incarceration?"

Someone mentioned that Wackenhut runs prisons all over the world for profit. I would imagine that some trend might be that toward switching around prisoners from nation to nation in order to conform to the torture designs an administration prefers to utilize, or to minimalize the traditional legal tools of habeus corpus and right to a speedy trial. Bringing for-profit prisons into a neo-Corporatist trend of governance seems a logical step toward corrupting the democratic society.

The trend toward mass-marketing prisoners in an era of mass-marketing goods and mass-marketing politics through broadcast brainwashing again seems reasonable enough in that one should anticipate those creeping, coinciding trends of corruption to develop as social identity of the individual is mass-marketed to be formed for the use of business and government.

A late Texas Poet wrote about the duplicitous nature of mankind and government. Even Commercialized 'Christianity' may be redesigned to accomodate all into the fold of state requirements...

Eighth Air Force by Randall Jarrell

If, in an odd angle of the hutment,
A puppy laps the water from a can
Of flowers, and the drunk sergeant shaving
Whistles O Paradiso!--shall I say that man
Is not as men have said: a wolf to man?

The other murderers troop in yawning;
Three of them play Pitch, one sleeps, and one
Lies counting missions, lies there sweating
Till even his heart beats: One; One; One.
O murderers! . . . Still, this is how it's done:

This is a war . . . But since these play, before they die,
Like puppies with their puppy; since, a man,
I did as these have done, but did not die--
I will content the people as I can
And give up these to them: Behold the man!

I have suffered, in a dream, because of him,
Many things; for this last saviour, man,
I have lied as I lie now. But what is lying?
Men wash their hands, in blood, as best they can:
I find no fault in this just man.


Since the earliest and perhaps best efforts at rehabilitation in Pennsylvania prisons the success rate has declined perhaps, and instead mass production in creating an underworld and off-line populist underworld/working class synergy with incarceration has brought society into a more malleable status regarding neo-Corporatist transnational political management-worker policy.

With the national unemployment rate at approx. 5%, and the underemployed rate at perhaps 20%, with another 5% that have become discouraged and stopped looking for work, President Bush's plan to make 8 million illegal aliens lawful workers is itself virtually criminal. Pimping the value of U.S. citizenship is of the least concerns for a prosperous, aloof trans-nationalist though.

It would be difficult to provide better prison rehabiliation training than the poor and homeless can afford for obvious reasons of justice. With such subversion of the U.S. poor by President Bush it is unlikely that prison education can improve much either. As Texas prisons run toward transnational ownership increasingly, pay and not sentence guidelines are whats meaningful to the wink-torture administration I'd guess.

A Tabloid Artiste’s Approach to P43’s Mag Administration

The transition of PGWB’s 43 administration into a .44 Mag administration makes some waves for the political analyst. The first term was reoriented with a national disaster to set the agenda, while the second term has been inaugurated with an international disaster visited mostly upon low-lying Muslim coastal areas.

Certainly the administration has a larger than life qualify of straining credibility about it. It’s international relations policy was led in the state department by a former General familiar enough with international corpses to survey the recent tsunami regions and provide astounding comments and relief coordination. It is uncertain that his successor, NSA Rice is sufficiently experienced at international death to provide a diplomatic posture equal to that of Secretary Powell. Adviser Rice was bloodied a bit in the confusing World Trade Center disaster of course, yet it is hardly in Secretary Powell’s league.

Thus I shall use a Tabloidist’s analytical approach in considering the administration’s possible role in causing the tsunami to make a wave surge to get through its first year in the second term…

Does the technology exist to enable big evil empirical political disasters that stretch public credulity so far as to be in the Loch Ness League? Could a neutron bomb primer have set off the tsunami-causing earthquake in the Indian Ocean?

Arab newspaper od/eds reported that the U.S. Government did cause the earthquake that brought about the deaths of 160,000 people so far. Secretary Powell and the State Department team is veteran at death and blackop/bops of course, yet they may be entirely innocent and only acting as apologetic buzzards circling over the fields of bodies.

It could seem to some fundamentalist Muslims yearning to overthrow their corrupt governments allied with OPEC/AUTOS/BUSHES that the U.S. is a Satanic power seeking to subsume all individual liberty beneath techtonic plates of transnational corporate power. In the United States even, political dissent from transnational rule is apt to bring one into the focus of broadcast media and oil sycophants as an ‘Indian’ or some other disparaging appellation. Transnational Corporate power demands political fealty for promotion and prosperity in any nation. In fundamentalist revolutionary movements the U.S.A. is ordinarily credited with being the source of transnational or Globalist political power unfortunately.

Was the Captain of the U.S. San Francisco that ran aground in the Indian Ocean recently, actually struggling with resistance against transgalactic alien body-mind control directed by the covert former Loch Ness Alliance and present Ogo Pogo Klan members working with the alien film production center in Los Angeles?

Does former President Bush-41 continue to secretly meet with giant squid deep beneath Kennebunkeport in a subterranean lair providing clandestine access to the Atlantic’s deepest reaches? Are those meetings with Ogo Pogo Klansexttraterretrials that are not made available for public review under the freedom of information act the true cause of the tsunami-generating earthquake coordinated by work affiliated with the U.S. San Francisco submarine battle group?

Has the administration opened the gates of heck in order to avoid have rotten peaches tossed at them by the Congress?

Theocracies, Democracies and clearings.

I read an article in a recent issue of Foreign Affairs that illustrated the virtues of withdrawing from Iraq sooner rather than later. I tended to agree with the points of the article, that were analogized in an example of Spain circa 1800 and later Italy in which the peasants rejected an offer of democracy and liberation to support their ecclesiastical and feudal overlords. Race and culture prevailed over liberation. people get ignorant and vote aginst the foreigners and for the local demogogies, or vote by associating in the pack-mob with explosives and Kalashnikovs.

One of the false assumptions about democracy is that people will vote for it de novo. I believe that is incorrect. They will revolt de novo perhaps; yet not establish a democratic society. A democratic society needs some sort of elite to guide it through a Republican phase (no reference to the U.S. federal sort intended, it has gone to the seed of neo-Corporatism). Britains democracy took 600 years to evolve to the point of reaching ordinary people much. Iraq hasn't had 600 years although the Stalinist-Saddamite meatgrinder eliminates tribalism quicker than that.

Iraq has no sponsoring elite to guide it. Some might say that socialism is a preparation for democracy, yet I would say that socialism is more of a preparation for neo-Corporatism than for individuality.

The nations around Iraq will fear anarchy and civil war, and will intervene to force some sort of authority. It is notable that fundamentalist terrorist will fight Americans simply because they are Americans and wear expensive perfume the Arabs don’t like.

The U.S.A. would suffer fewer casualties by invading every few years if a terrorist government forms than by camping in Iraq to wheedle oil from a puppet regime.

Yet of course, the present Iraqi election and government should be given U.S. military assistance and support for some 6 months or so as a draw down occurs. Integrating Iraqi military forces with a populist Iraqi Government should be the main objective for some time. An orderly withdrawal of American forces over the next year at a regular pace would help to convince the people of Iraq that the U.S.A. presence isn’t an occupying power but was instead a liberating Army.

Democracies that formed spontaneously and without corruption would require a human nature that is beyond earthly ability. Each individual would need to meet with the others and recognize the fundamental inalienable human rights of the others; in fact that sort of Utopia never happens associated with a particular geographic region.

Another requirement of Democracies are that they must be exclusive of some others. In ancient Athens there was a very limited enfranchisement. Some few citizens that did vote equally enslaved the remainder basically. In the modern democracies enfranchisement is limited or conditional, or the nations are isolated, remote, militarily strong or in the process of failing. A Democracy is limited to a specific class of individuals named citizens that have full decision-making power over their geographic region, or it is not a democracy. Vast influxes of illegal aliens over porous borders, aloof Globalist rulers and etc. are not supports for a democratic society.

Autocracy, neo-Corporatists Globalism, Communism, International Socialism, borderless capitalism, a royal power or secular ecclesiastical governments with a catholic inclusion are each inimical to a self-determining democratic society in several characteristic including those of going over-the-borders of individuality and law. The borderless broadcast media is an essential corrupter of individual and civil rights of democrats.

The Roman Empire was definitely not democratic, although the populism of bread and circuses for the mob or middle class effectively satisfied some of the popular restiveness.

In the United States some of the Christian Commercial broadcast media seems virtually a sycophantic tool of Satan’s broadcast media phenomena in that they do support entirely worldly political policies that have no relevance to the Bible at all. At some point quite early real Christian ideas and work separate from politics and worldliness, yet the broadcasters always return to political spin and even social terrorism.

That isn’t a new phenomena. The Catholic Church in the dark ages became too worldly and political and it continued until a downhill slide began a few centuries ago. The Bush Christian commercial sympcasters seem to choose out whatever sermons will support their Patron or attack his political enemies, and that is the trouble. Even if Bush supported a couple of Christian values, he also opposes political values such as environmentalism and economic rights of poor Americans that are of meaning to many Christians not enfeofed and nurtured by the Republican Party.

It is a paradox that some Commercial Christian Broadcasters may lead some to faith yet themselves be lost to worldliness. I now begin to understand why Senator McCain took that turn away from the Virginia Beach crowd in the 2000 primary, rather disastrously before the SC run. They have gone overboard in moving toward a false Christian political alliance with Globalist political forces.

Christians can assert their political values plainly, yet they must do so in a non-partisan way. They cannot afford to sign off like idiotic blank check party ticket voters thus rubber-stamping approval of all sorts of daft and evil policies they cannot understand. It is an unfortunate thing that some commercial Christian are too loud spoken on political areas, perhaps using extracts of the Bible to support their political points, because they are not political scientists, competent historians, liberal scholars of western civilization etc. in many issues simply sabotaging progress and human rights that have been paid for in blood over the millennia. They have the cold-blooded arrogant political idiocy to attack liberlaism to the point of nihilation instead of trying to rescue it from the sewer through which the flag has been dragged in recent decades of homsexuality, drugs, prositution, socialism and so forth.

Instead of daft party support Christian broadcasters should just support issues they are comfortable with and hope for candidates and parties that will include those within a moral context.

If the Republicans ran a candidate with a surgically altered blue forked tongue that was against abortion but was pro-logging and for drilling ANWR, would Pat Robertson support him? Christian commercial broadcasters need to express moral and Biblical issues, yet remain unaffiliated in order to avoid being manipulated by worldly forces into simply supporting the rich and most powerful and all times as they do seem to do presently in parts of the U.S.A.

The political choices in America are not legally limited to just debauchocrats or Globalist republicans as the sycophant broadcasters seem to believe. Expressing objective opinions about politics instead of Partisan ones can allow other political developments to occur that might be consistent with the nation’s constitution, democratic history and other economic advantages in addition to the protection of moral values. Commercial christain broadcasters in being so worldly, conniving and political extreme in association with Globalist Republicans put a lot of pressure on real Christians relying on the Bible instead of broadcasts that should not occur.

I hope that the blood lust of many commercial Christian broadcasters to follow the Bush administration and annex Iraq onto Global oil’s branch of neo-Corporatism will not produce a blind-lust for extended deployment of American forces in Iraq far beyond the upcoming Iraqi election.

The potential to restructure Iraq with international intervention should the new government fail to defend itself and a civil war ensues exists. A new international support structure could follow. I do not know why anyone believes that it is in America’s best interests now to maintain a large military presence in that nation. Iraq probably will move ahead as a commercial nation that will want freedom to travel, trade and prosper for its citizens. The U.S.A. cannot force it and should not try even if some misguided sycophants of Global Oil believe it must.
FROM THE DESK OF:MR WILLIAM WEI,
BANK OF OVERSEAS CHINESE
NORTH SHYN LIN DISTRICT
TAIPEI,TAIWAN


" I am Mr William Wei,Bank Manager, Bank Of Overseas Chinese North Shyn LinDistrict, Taipei, Taiwan. I have urgent and very confidential businessproposition for you.On June 6, 1999, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese SolidMinerals Corporation, Mr. David Abel made a Fixed Deposit of the sum ofUS$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars) which accumulated to thesum of US$20,160,176.00 (Twenty Million, One hundred and sixty thousand, Onehundred and seventy six United States Dollars for twelve calendar months in mybranch.I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contractemployers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. David Abel diedfrom an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that hedied without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin wasfruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. DavidAbel did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$20,160,176.00is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with theprincipal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claimit.Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand inas the next of kin to Mr.David Abel so that the fruits of this old man's laborwill not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This issimple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address sothat the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits thatwill put you in place as the next of kin.We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization ofthe WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter ofprobate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in anypart of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer ofthis money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be doneby the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees thesuccessful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please replyimmediately via the private email addressabove. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details andrelevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easycommunication.Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured thatthis transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shallrequire your assistance to invest my share in your country.Awaiting your urgent replyThanks and regards,Mr.William Wei."

Dear Mr. Wei; yes, certainly I would be happy to receive 20 million dollars or whatever moneys you have to get rid of, if there are no laws against theft or embezzlement in Taiwan and international laws do not preclude the transaction you proposed. I am sure I can find something to do with it.

I recommend that you first purchase a few thousand copies of my books at http://www.lulu.com/GaryCGibson and distribute them to your friends in Asia so they may learn of the political and spiritual situation in the United States. The webpage and books have all the information you may need to transfer your wealth over this way. The state of Texas may be three time losers in delivering a photo ID card to me so I can get a job (they should issue it directly in the office without trusting the U. S. Postal Service), but my books above internet store have it all. If you prime the pump with some book acquisitions, I will open a savings account in Texas that you can send the money to.

I should let you know, Mr. Wei, in all confidentiality, that I once was employed by a company that was later bought by Mr.Cheyney while head of Halliburton.

I have a few development ideas about manufacturing aluminum 4 wheeled 'bikes' that could have a low wind profile and high average speed with shocks for use in Asian nations, they could be manufactured in China.

Best wishes,

Gary G.

Comment on selected Social Security Reform Criteria & Public Computer Structures

President Bush's 4% solution for social security private sector investment failed to mention more than one substantive criteria; the necessary condition that the private sector investments could not be spent before retirement age, and then within a rational, scaled withdrawl quantity.

Poor and middle class Americans will spend their private sector inestments before retirement age thye first time they are unemployed, and then the state will face the additional burden of replacing those lost investments eventually to meet the basic reasons for having social security to start with.

The rich and well-to-do in the administration seem to forget that easy, long term stock investment security and growth strategies fail for the unemployed that need to spend the money for food, housing or for the middle class, a bigger SUV than their neighbor, or a 30,000 dollar plasma TV.

I will leave off this subject at this point.

Regarding public computers.

The maintainance costs of public library computer networks and their upgrading might be increased, I will venture to guess, by eliminating so many individual computers and replacing them with wirless dumb terminals enabled to connect to a few or just one quality computer maintained by the library.

Perhaps a rack of disk drives associated with the specific terminals would be useful, as might flat screen vdts.

The public library assisstant Igors or quankearls that make the hardware malfunctions of public computers and corrections 50% of their feudal turf domain leverage would be more restricted from spamming online time with offline 'advice' if wireless terminals and the remote compyters were streamlined into a reduced technical configuration that is more trouble-free. Sometimes public computer usage resembles that of a bad a bad hominid encampment wherein a motivated ape raves too much for ego reasons instead of a modern American environbment

Breaking free of evil and retarding social structures is of course one of the perennially difficult challenges that an American citizen may encounter. of course one wants to eliminate inhibiting social factors fom the public environment so far as possible when they negatively impact the fundamental social strcutures that are implicitly an elements of the United States constitutional parameters.

President Bush with his personal Igor nominee for Attorney General now being reviewed by the in-house inquisition review board has exemplified the negative national drift toward a fundamenatal disrespect for human libert. The evasive and disingenuous answers of the nominee toward questions regarding totrure seemed more appropirate for a wise guy with the training of a consigliary than for an Attorney General.

A forthright candidate for Attorney general should have answerd plain questions honestly and directly. The training for evasiveness may serve a criminal attorney quite well, yet it is not appropriate for a gentleman seeking to represent the legal interests of the people of the United States at the top of the Department of Justice. Plain speaking and integrity should exist in the government at least at the executive level.

The trend toward disingenuity in a new era of politics may negatively impact American plans to schedule a withdrawl of forces from Iraq in an orderly manner after the election. Iraqis will need to have the will to take up their own security or their own civil wars, perhaps we should assist the Kurds toward autonomy in that event, in the near future.

The Real Civil War of the Future Tense v1.9

The future of civil war in the United States is a popular theme these days. War is more fungible than abstract politics and rhetoric bitten...
