Tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and endangering the country. It works the same in every country”

either Republican or Democratic causes. Look up your computer maker, the
last airline you flew on, the last grocery store you shopped at. My
results were rather frightening and I might need to change where I buy
chickpeas for Ryan and I. :-) I guess one of the ways we can vote
The $300M Terrorist Training/Recruiting Camp
Wasn’t that nice of us? I’m certain all of our "enemies" would send us a thank you card if they didn’t think it might endanger their lives. I’m certain they all think thankful thoughts though, so don’t worry.
Why are they so thankful? Every tax payer in the USA is currently funding the largest terrorist trainging and recruiting camp in history, Iraq. And $300,000,000.00 goes a long way . . .
Iraq is now a central hub in the → Continue reading “The $300M Terrorist Training/Recruiting Camp”
Why We Need to Standardize National Elections
Ever since day 1 there has been the struggle between Federal and States Rights/Power.
Regardless of whether the electoral college continues as a part of our voting system we need to standardize and revamp the voting system for national elections in the United States of America.
Because how someone votes in Alabama effects the lives of people in
Oregon and the rest of the 50 states everyone in this country should
see the same ballot and vote in exactly the → Continue reading “Why We Need to Standardize National Elections”
Experts Predict Polar Bear Decline
A 30 percent drop in the number of polar bears is expected as diminishing ice packs affect the bears’ ability to find food and to reproduce.Continue reading “Experts Predict Polar Bear Decline”
Now is the time to work towards a deterrence paradigm by enhancing the security of the “enemy”.
If you want to enhance the security of the US and the world in general
against the threat of so-called terrorism the best thing to do is to
help the percieved "enemy" be and feel more secure.
This will enhance security for both parties. Now there are two parties dealing with each other who both have something to lose and it is possible to re-enable the paradigm of deterrence.
It seems to have helped get us through WWIII (Cold War), → Continue reading “Now is the time to work towards a deterrence paradigm by enhancing the security of the “enemy”.”
Monotheism and the decline of Political Discourse
The more monotheistic influence that has crept into government has dissolved the concept of debate and plurality. Based on a mono-theistic religious ideology you are morally prohibited from allowing another viewpoint on the question of "Who is God?". Thus, if you think you are legislating for the "cause" of your religious ideology, you cannot even engage in a discussion with someone else on the subject because you are pre-judged.
Fundamentally, a monotheistic religion is based on the ideological base paradigm → Continue reading “Monotheism and the decline of Political Discourse”
How is a $4M ERP E-business sale like Selling Democracy in Iraq.
Simple: in both cases you need to be dealing with a prospect (or invaded, defeated, and/or occupied country and people) that is ready for change, wants to move in that direction and has already been trying to do it for sometime.
Bascially, it needs to already be present in the corporate culture (in a business context) and culture of a people already.
People point to Japan and Germany as examples, however, they are way off the mark as far as → Continue reading “How is a $4M ERP E-business sale like Selling Democracy in Iraq.”
Why Bush can Lie and Get Away With It.
Thesis: One of the NeoCon’s core idealogies is evangelical Christianity. In a religious social exchange/social script is no room for discourse. Meaning, there isn’t a framework for open discussion where the answer isn’t really understood with two parties trying to come to some sort of mutual understanding. The paradigm in that context is akin to "This is the answer, there is no why, obey."
So, when Bush and the like do things, they can simply piggy-back on that paragimn, say → Continue reading “Why Bush can Lie and Get Away With It.”
