Sudden Jihad Syndrome

There is a new disease popping up in the USA and other lands. It is (Or, should be) called "SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME". The carriers of that too often fatal-to-victims disorder are such as Mohamed Hassan Hadeyet who, on 7-4-02 left a note reading "Read The Koran" on the door of his apartment, went to the Los Angeles Airport and murdered randomly selected persons. Other carriers of this horrid disease are the highly educated Muslim man who attempted to use his 4X4 to kill students at a US college and the Muslim youth who very recently killed several persons at a Utah mall.

These are the carriers; The real victims are, of course, those they killed, the friends and relatives of those real victims and the entire People of the USA and the other civilized lands where this disorder is progressing from isolated outbreaks to endemic occurrences. (It must be stopped before it becomes epidemic!)

At this time, it appears that SJS occurs, in the USA, only in Muslim males who meet the following pre-conditions: They study the and Koran the other works of Islam; They compare the success of a largely Christian culture with the non-accomplishments of Islamic nations; And, they compare Mohammed (A bandit, murderer, liar and sexual abuser of a nine year young girl-child) with the examples of Jesus, Washington, Lincoln and so many others who made the USA great---And, express their dissatisfaction by going on a personal and sudden jihad with the intent to kill as many non-Muslims as possible.

In the year 1492 Spain has a similar disease rampant in its Southern areas which was "cured" by expelling all Muslims from the Iberian peninsula. Since our relevant public health officials (The police) seem unable to prevent outbreaks of this disorder in the USA the only responses to this fatal disease appears to be to either follow the Spanish example of 1492 OR allow all law-abiding US citizens to carry concealed weapons so that they may apply the necessary public health measures (Well placed shots with frangible bullets) upon local outbreaks and carriers of this disease.

Loving Atheists, Muslims, SPs & The Like

Could you believe it? There are some "folks" who actually maintain that I do not love Atheists, Muslims, Secular (Anti-Christian) Humanists and others of that ilk.

I so love even the worst of them (Jihadists, abortionists, those who warp the minds of our children by Anti-Christian/Anti-Religion educational programs) that I wish them only well when I wish to send them out of this world and before the Judgment of God asap and before they commit any more sins to the harm of their own souls and the well being of others---Especially both born and unborn children AND other innocents as the victims of Islamic terrorism.

I wonder what that Doctor of the Church, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, would have thought of my position as he proclaimed the need to use the sword against the pagans (Who worship the false gods of murder, rape, revenge, genocide, robber, perpetual war, etc.) of Islam. In fact, I wonder what the Christ, who strongly suggested tying a mill stone around the neck of those who harm children and throwing them into the sea) would have thought about my positions.

Ultimate Defense Of "Academic Freedom"

When attacks on "academic freedom" become physical and mob actions (As at San Francisco State University and Columbia U.), then would the Natural Law and Statutory provisions for the use of such force as is necessary (Including deadly force) be to resist and supress such attacks when speakers (Or those who are with them) believe that they are in danger of death or great bodily harm?

Do such speakers (Or, their on-site supporters) have a duty to accept physical violence against them in the hopes of some eventual police or judicial or university action (Which has proven a false hope in the past)?

As for myself and my walking stick, my reaction to such mob attacks would be measured in "dead and wounded" among the attackers.

Bike Helmets & Body Parts

I have no objection to (Motorized or otherwise) bike riders going about without wearing helmets---If, and only if, laws are passed to make such action an automatic (And not revocable by rider or family) offer of body parts for transplants and other medical uses when such persons are declared brain dead after an accident. (As opposed to their being brain dead for not wearing a helmet)./Jim Pawlak

Decider Rider
By Reid Collins
Published 2/20/2007 12:06:08 AM
"I make the decision, this is America for God's sakes."

Thus spake a retired fire chief in Montana as motorcyclists lined up in the state capitol to oppose a legislative proposal to mandate the use of safety helmets for cyclists in the Treasure State. Fire chief Ralph Elrod needn't have worried. The proposition was tabled in committee, 15 to 2, the latest failed attempt to bring Montana in line with 20 states that have mandatory helmet laws. Twenty-seven states, Montana among them, do have laws requiring such head gear for minors under 18. And three states have no such laws. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration lists them as Colorado, Iowa, and Illinois.

A state senator declared the Montana matter to be "an issue of freedom," not surprising perhaps for a state that only recently acceded to installing a speed limit on its highways. Not even an amendment allowing those with at least a hundred thousand dollars in medical insurance to ride helmet-free could clear passage, but it holds a clue to the motivation of those who want to curtail the fire chief's freedom to decide. The traffic safety folk say helmetless cycle riding costs money-- and frequently it is public money. And hospital groups were among those leading the pleading for a helmet law.

NHTSA estimates helmets saved $1.3 billion in 2002 alone and that another $853 million would have been saved if all involved in fatal crashes had been wearing helmets. Figures show fatalities rising faster than motorcycle registration: 2,116 deaths in 1997, 4,553 in 2005. The NHTSA folk say helmets saved 1,316 cyclists in 2004 and if all wore them, another 671 could have lived. In short, helmet use, they claim, reduces likely crash fatality by 37 percent.

All the compelling statistics from the government files, and those adjacent in the nursing association notebooks, fail to take into account the psychology of "bike" riding. It is not done for reasons of safety. That tinnitus-inducing roar speaks of something else; that cervical-snapping acceleration treats of another time. The appeal is to adventure beyond reach of many, and alien to most.

T. Roosevelt, Tokyo Rose * Peaceniks"

In 1915 the USA was in the midst of a debate as to its role in opposing the aggressive warfare of the Empires of Germany, Turkey and Austria-Hungary. On August 25, 1915 ex-President Theodore Roosevelt appeared (In full "Rough Rider" dress) before a group of college students after their military exercises with US Army troops and complemented those students for "fulfilling the prime duty of free men" who were, as he continued, "...unlike those professional pacifists, poltroons and college sissies who organize peace-at-any-price societies."

There appears to be a great difference between Teddy Roosevelt and Teddy Kennedy---That difference is in the personal courage of Mr. Roosevelt on military duty in Cuba and giving a Milwaukee speech after being shot AND as opposed to "Fat Boy" who, unlike his older brothers, avoided military duty, left a young woman to drown and is in the process of stabbing our present troops in the back (With the support of too many of his Party) while they fight terrorism.

It appears that Mr. Roosevelt also had to contend with the white flag waivers of his day as Mr. Bush and our troops do today.


She had the best music on her station and most people just laughed.

Tokyo Rose During World War II -- the Japanese developed a way to
demoralize the American forces. Psychological warfare experts developed a
message they felt would work.

They gave the script to their famous broadcaster "Tokyo Rose" and every
day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways,
hoping it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale.

What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

1. Your President is lying to you.
2. This war is illegal.
3. You cannot win the war.

Does this sound familiar?

Is it because Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo John, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo
Nancy, etc. have picked up the same message and are broadcasting it on
Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops?

The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before they
demoralize them.

Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side,

Come to think of it, "Tokyo Rose" was later found guilty of TREASON!
Some of the above-named imitators might consider that fate AND the great anger felt by our troops in the field and those of us who support them.

NO Separation Of Church & State !

The Constitution of the United States does NOT contain the expression "separation of church and state". It does contain Prohibitions against any federal law restricting the "free exercise" of religion and, likewise, of free speech. The provision against the "establishment" of a (State or official Federal) religion was to prevent the type of established churches (Church of England or the Scots Kirk) as had taxing and the ability to use the civil law of Great Britain at that time to enforce its own theologies and practices on others---And, for no other restrictive reasons.

The use of Christian symbols, prayers and speech in the public schools (When they were established much later) and in all public forums was expected, legal and not challenged until very recent and degenerate times.

If Thomas Jefferson's use of the term "wall of separation", in a private letter, means so much, then the many expressions of many founders of this Nation as to (At worst) "Nature and nature's God" and (More usual) "Almighty God" in their public statements and documents should carry much more weight in forming up our reaction and personal-and-judicial positions as to the place of religion in the public square or court houses or the public schools or any other public forum.

This is all our elected officials, judges, editors and other citizens need to know about the Constitution and religion.

Recruiting Young Republicans

I do not know the source-author of the little story below;
But, it may be the same person who defined a liberal as
"Someone who hasn't been mugged yet".


A young woman was about to finish her first year
of college. Like so many others her age, she
considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat,
and was very much in favor of the redistribution of

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a
rather staunch Republican, a feeling she openly
expressed. Based on the lectures that she had
participated in, and the occasional chat with a
professor, she felt that her father had for years
harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he
thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his
opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the
addition of more government welfare programs. The
self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her
professors had to be the truth and she indicated so
to her father. He responded by asking how she was
doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that
she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was
tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a
very difficult course load and was constantly
studying, which left her no time to go out and party
like other people she knew. She didn't even have
time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many
college friends
because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your
friend Audrey doing?"

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she
takes are easy classes, she never studies, and she
barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus;
college for her is a blast. She's always invited to
all the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even
show up for classes because she's too hung over."

Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you
go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0
off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has
a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and
certainly that would be a fair and equal
distribution of GPA."

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's
suggestion, angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be
fair! I have worked really hard for my grades! I've
invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work!
Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree.
She played while I worked my tail off!"

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,
"Welcome to the Republican party

MItt Romney & The Mormon Elders

There has been too much written or spoken to the effect that the Elders of the Mormon Church will have an undue influence on a Presidient Mitt Romney. Those Elders are likely to have as much influence over Mitt Romney as the Bishops of the Catholic Church had over the Kennedys---None.

As a Catholic, I can reasonably hope that Mr. Romney's personal standards of morality are better than the Joseph (Best friend of gangsters), John F. (Back staircase) and Ted (Drown Them And Leave Them) Kennedys.

The Rule Of Law OR Of Lawyers???


One of the pride-filled statements of those who live within our
Anglo-American systems of government is that we live “not under the rule of men, but that of laws”. More-and-more I wonder if that is true. Each year it appears that we live under the “rule-of-lawyers” and not within any other structure or constraints.

Our laws (Including “rules” and “regulations”) have become so many, so complex and so convoluted that it is all but impossible to carry out even daily tasks without paying (Or paying off) some lawyer. This is most specially true in the production of real goods and services so basic to the economy. (Perhaps, the real economic advantage of such nations as Japan and China is their relative lack of attorneys.)

It is hard to think of any class of persons, in the USA who produce less for and drain more from the real economy than do lawyers. (Even stock brokers, as a smaller group of persons, do less harm that those, too often self-serving, agents and abusers of the law.) Lawyers, in fact, craft our laws, rules and regulations and, as far as I can determine, make an effort to do so t in such a manner as to ensure the full employment of other attorneys.

[One of the worst abuses inflicted on the People of the USA is that trial attorneys, especially in “class actions”, all too often suck up most of the judgments awarded.]

After all, attorneys already control one of our three branches of government (The judiciary) and should not have a lock on controlling the legislative or, even, the administrative branches of government.

There are some possible solutions, among which are:
1.Pass a Constitution amendment making, after ten years from approval, the prior possession of a law degree a disqualification to hold any legislative position in the Congress or the legislatures of the Several States;
2.Pass another amendment limiting the total number of words in
the laws, regulations and rules of the Federal government to ten million (At ten characters/numbers for each word; With like restrictions (With a smaller limit) for the governments each of the Several States);
3.Require, by whatever means, that all such laws, rules and regulations be “passed” by the majority of a jury of randomly chosen citizens, none with a law degree, as understandable to persons of average intelligence and education;
4.Require that, in all lawsuits, the attorneys on the “winning side” are not to receive more than 40% of the moneys awarded as fees or for costs of legal actions;
5.Require that all settlements made in our civil courts be made public even if such are made before a verdict is given;
6.Shut down all Law Schools for not less than five-years (To eliminate the current excess of lawyers and to adjust for the solutions above), And,
7.Require that the “loser” in suits-at-law pay the costs and attorneys and other fees of the “winner”; And, that any person who fails to do so would be barred from further suits for 20-years (However, awards made by arbitrators or referees would not be so regulated as the cost in such case are generally far less than in court cases, require the agreement of all parties and are not a burden on our courts and, therefore, our tax payers).

Of course, there is the alternative represented by a theme in one of Robert E. Heinlein's novels, referred to as “The Year We Killed All The Attorneys”.

Standing Orders To Protect The USA

In order to fulfill his oath-of-office as to defending the USA, the President should (Must?) issue the following standing orders to all Border Patrol members and military (Regulars, National Guard and, if ever used, the "General Militia") within one mile of our border with Mexico.
1. Unarmed persons illegally entering the USA are to be
immediately returned across that border using such
force as is necessary to to so.
2. Armed persons crossing our border are to be fired upon
without warning as invaders.
3. Any attacks from across that border are to be resisted and
the attackers destroyed.

I do not believe, based on the evidence before us, that any lesser directions will protect the USA from drug smugglers, members of
very dangerous Latino gangs (Many of whom previously deported), potential terrorists, bearers of untreatable and contagious diseases (eg Drug resistant TB), identity thieves, Pancho Villa style raiders and the other criminals now flooding across that border.

Jesus, Swords & Humanity

Jesus the Christ was a lover of humanity. That is clearly shown by His healing, casting out of demons (Real of psychological—Take your pick), feeding the multitudes, making glad the hearts of the wedding guests by turning water into fine wine and the other like acts of His public ministry on this earth.

Most of all, He offered Himself to a horrid and most painful death to be the
Salvation of humanity!

In doing so He forbade his followers from interfering, by use of a sword, from having others place Him under arrest. This special case of stopping the use of a sword was necessary for the promises of God to come into being.

However, Jesus also demonstrated His love of His followers by insisting
(Please see Luke 22: 35-38) that they arm themselves with swords (The
AK-47s or AR-15s of that time and place) before going out on the unpoliced and dangerous roads in that land.

Tattoos & Smoke

About 55-years ago I visited my mother at her place-of-employment and noted a rough tattoo of numbers on the arm of one of her co-workers. I later found out that that lady was one of the too few survivors of Nazi death camps who lost all of her immediate and extended family in such places; THOSE LOST SOULS BECOMING SMOKE IN THE SKY—Out of the chimneys of crematoria.

She, as a few others, were rescued by the Allied Armed Forces of that earlier and superior generation who defeated Nazi, Imperial Japanese and foolish Italian forces and liberated a good part of the earth from the horrors and slavery imposed by the Axis nations.

For the last 1400-plus years Islam has imposed its own horrors and slavery on all non-Muslims (And, some Muslims who interpret Islam differently from others). The so-called “War” in Iraq and Afghanistan is only the most recent battle against those who use the ideology of Islam to enslave and terrify (In the fullest sense of that word) others.

Now that at least one Islamic nation (Pakistan; Which always teeters on the edge of an internal take over by those basic Muslims who favor Jihad over reason) has the A-Bomb and the Mullah driven government of Iran is on the verge of having such weapons (With the declared intent of destroying the State of Israel), we must consider what should be done to prevent our becoming SMOKE IN THE SKY—In mushroom clouds.

The days of waiting for a “Pearl Harbor” as moral cause for reaction as self-protection are over! It is necessary to consider and plan for a preventative military action to keep Iran from starting an atomic war. My suggestion is to send them, via ICBM some inert warheads to their uranium processing centers---With the message that the next warheads will be “live rounds”.

Other supporters of basic Islam, as is the Saudi government/family, can be then reminded that the cities of Mecca and Medina can become glass lined and radioactive craters.

Better that they should go up in smoke than us.
