Happy New Year

I hope you have a Happy New Year. I hope some of you get so drunk that police officers will pull you over, make you take a breath test with a tube stuck in your mouth, make you walk a straight line which is something you cannot do, and they give you a DWI and send you to jail. I hope some of you end up

seeing the ball drop while sitting there in your jail cell. In order for me to enjoy the new year coming in, is for you to all get out of my way. I hope some of you get so drunk that you will have a helluva hangover when you wake up on New Year's Day, finding yourself in a jail cell in bed with Bubba; while others find themselves waking up in bed with someone else's spouse! This is the difference between Christmas and New Year. Forget about "unto us a child is born," "peace," and "goodwill to men (and women)." It's totally the opposite. It's disrespect for your fellow man and woman and getting them in trouble because you decided to be a donkey's ass.
For those assholes who ruin it for the rest of us celebrating the new year, this prayer is for you. I hope you do get messed up with a bad hangover and end up with Bubba violating your person!

Thank You.

When does your car battery die?

It dies during the holidays and that's what it did. I knew I need to change it. This is something I had to do. I was glad I was in my hometown when it did. So when I got roadside assistance at Braum's to get the battery charged up, I went to Wal-Mart and I purchased a new one and got it installed. If you don't insurance coverage for roadside assistance or it expired earlier this year, you can be charged a little over $60 just to have someone come over to where you're at and charge up your battery. After that, I go to Wal-Mart to get a new one installed. When you pay for it, always keep the receipt. I was charged $69 to get that done. I expect to pay for a new battery, but to be charged for roadside assistance after not having to use it before. I got ripped off. Was there even a hint there was something wrong when I started the car on the way to Braum's? If I knew there was a slight bit of something wrong when I turned on the ignition, I would have gone to Wal-Mart anyway and get the new battery installed, while I went to the store itself to buy milk and orange juice there instead, hence saving me over $60. Oh well, we all learn. When something goes wrong with the car, it always seems to happen around this time of year. What about summer? Well, not always. I often go to see about getting my car fixed and ready, making sure there would be no additional problems with the car. Then, when there is no problem, you leave town. Winter? I didn't leave town. I never thought there was a problem. It seemed to be running fine until the time I tried to leave to Braum's parking lot. But, now that I got it fixed, my car is running fine and I am fine. The ordeal only lasted less then two hours. And I have my health and I thank God that's all there was wrong with the car. It needed a new battery. It could have been worse. I wasn't stranded on some lost highway. And nothing serious went wrong with the car and that I did not have an accident. I thank God (Allah SWT) that everything turned out alright. So, it only cost me over $60. I am thankful it didn't cost me much more than that.

Santa Killings

This is sick. A deranged man who goes through a divorce, goes on a killing spree, dresses as Santa Klaus, pays a visit to a family of former in-laws, rings the door bell, kills a little girl, then kills whoever else is in the house, sets fire to the house, burns it down, and killing eight people trapped inside the burning house. Most of you have heard about already, so I don't need to say where it happened. After that, he goes and kills himself. This ruins the perception innocent kids can have about Santa Klaus when some psycho dresses like him and does this. This is one incident. I would not be surprised if this is happening everywhere. Some psycho out there is not happy. So, he sees to it that nobody else around him is not happy and goes on a warpath to destroy lives. It is the times we live. Many Jews, Muslims, and Christians say we are living in the end times. It must be what it is. The one we celebrate at Christmas is the one who is coming again soon.

It's cold outside

What? A slow newsday? I hear a lot about it being very cold outside. Apparently, I lucked out.
It's cold, but there is no snow or ice on the ground while most of the country got piles and piles of snow and ice. From where I live, it will warm up during Christmas and we will get a lot of rain. No white Christmas this year while the rest of us already got their wish and now wishing it would all go away. Well, anti-Clinton troubadour Ken Starr will head the California Prop 8 Defense team. Conservatives will be receiving in their mailboxes a letter from Ken Starr and a plea from Ken from them a large donation to the defense team. I know how this works. I used to receive mail from all kinds of political groups asking me for a donation with a letter that is written in a way that tells me they are fighting for what is right and good for the country while the other side wants to destroy the country. This is how they get their money. Land in Utah up for the highest bidder, like the Arches. There might be some oil buried under there. People are protesting in Salt Lake City over this while a student went to the auction to bid for land, even though he didn't have the money, throwing monkey wrenches at the bidding, ready to go to jail for what he believes, and be charged with committing fraud. While the news has been about Caylee all day long, Rachel Maddow puts in some topics not mentioned all day in the press, which is some of those I have mentioned. The Cheney-Biden verbal boxing match. Shoes thrown at a cardboard of Blagojevich's likeness in Chicago. Haven't you heard? Shoe-throwing is the new protest cry!
But, it cold outside and now that Caylee is dead which I hated to hear and it's sad, the press are still going to talk about this and go on and on about it while other kids are turning up missing every minute as we blog, speak, or watch news on TV.

The Holidays

Well, it's the Christmas holiday again. Time to get out the old flicks that relate to this special occasion that comes once a year. Time off from work to enjoy such flicks like "The Hebrew Hammer" and "Friday After Next," two of the most recent all-time Christmas classics where Santa is looked at through a different kind of lens. In one, Santa Klaus dies and his evil son takes over the role to utterly destroy Hanukkah and it is up to the Hebrew Hammer to defeat Evil Klaus to save Hanukkah. In the other film, Santa Klaus is a thief who roams around the ghetto
breaking in people's homes, stealing all of their gifts on Christmas Eve night. There are some other Christmas I might like to see, such as "Four Christmases," but I would want to see it as a matinee feature. I would not fork in 9 or 10 bucks to see it. On Christmas Day, Tom Cruise, back from his Scientology relapse and his conniption fits, stars as the guy who wants to stop Hitler from within in with the movie entitled, "Valkyrie." Oh, just what we need. Another movie about freakin' Hitler and World War II. It should be well known what Hitler did for many who know anything about history. All except for David Irving, Mark Weber, and Osama bin Laden. Hitler represented everything that was evil about this world and who wanted to annihilate a whole religion and its people and annihilate many others, too all in the name of a "purified," "superior" race to rule the world with an iron fist. So many films and documentaries are found concerning this as well as books on the subject. Well, okay, I may go see it when it debuts if I don't have anything else to do on Christmas night or sometime after that. I keep putting off things I might like to do, but many important things keeps getting in the way. Many other films are coming out such as the one Will Smith stars called "Seven Pounds." I hope I got the title right. Hmm, don't know if this is worth while.

Anyway, I hope to post more before Christmas Day. Around this time, Jews observe Hanukkah and Muslims, for some who are able and can afford to go, are partaking the hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. While those events are going on, we have the Eagleback Bowl, a college bowl no one has never heard of before where Wake Forest was playing Navy (the Naval Academy).
Also, there is college basketball where 1-A schools play and pounce on those from the 1-AA.
You know, the usual things that holidays so unique.

I guess that's it for now.

Shoes Hurled at Bush in Iraq Press Conference

Scenes of the incident brought to you by MichaelMoore.com.

George W. Bush's Nightmare Before Christmas

Well, he wants to give $14 Billion to the Big 3 American automakers, but a poll just came out saying that most Americans oppose it. Where will the money go? Will it help workers keep their jobs?

12/13/08: President-Elect Obama's Weekly Address

To those against the auto bailout

To those Republicans and the three Democrats who voted no on the auto bailout had only one thing on their minds. It is to bust union jobs, all 3 million of them! Also, they voted to see to it that cars made here in America by these big 3 American automakers will never be made here in America again! Thanks a lot! Now, will Bush save these guys with a bailout? As Michael Moore would say, "Fat Chance!"

Time to weigh in on Blagojovich

Before this story appeared in the nightly news, I never knew who the Illinois governor was or even cared to know since I don't live in the Land of Lincoln. Then, when I heard about it, I was thinking, "My God, Illinois is runned by the mafia." The language, it's appalling coming from an elected official. Gov. Blago wanted to sell Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder? He considered this seat to be freakin' golden? I take it that he's mad at Pres.-elect Obama for not offering him a cabinet position. So, he said "Bleep him!" If nobody else says this about Blago, I will say it for them. This governor is a scumbag with brain about the size of a peanut. He should stay in jail. But, of course, he's not. A bigger scumbag than him coughed up money to bail him out. After all of this, he wanted to remain as governor although Obama has called for him to resign. He should resign and he should leave the state. Better yet, leave the country. The senate should never be up for sale. He wanted money coughed up from whoever wants it so he can fill up his campaign warchest. The man's definitely a politician and as a politician, he lives the stereotype of what a politician would do. The stereotype of any politician is an elected official who is a crook. Blago is definitely from the Daley machine and to this day, he lives up to the Daley name. For the sake of the people of Illinois, I hope demands and actions are taken to force him out of office. Also, this episode could hurt Obama later on down the road if nothing is done.

Making mistakes

"How do you feel?"

Answer : "Okay." But, done in a sarcastic way because it is not okay.

"Don't feel bad. Everybody makes mistakes. It is a part of learning __ __."

But I do feel bad. Make a mistake at a job and the boss is after you. You know you have a made of mistake and he knows it too. You got to be careful next time and pay attention.

All of this get me to thinking about all the mistakes we make even if I were doing things during my free time from work. Am I praying enough and studying enough? Am I living life the way it should be. When I think about it, I end up paying for my mistakes and yes, I feel bad, and I feel like running away. When someone makes a mistake and know it and don't want to face it, he runs away. But, I won't run away. I will face this tomorrow and know that I need to pay close attention. But, it don't erase the fact that I feel bad. So, when the day is done, I went home.
That's all there is to it.

Who supports these guys?

Shortwave radio is known throughout the world as world band radio. Here in the states, stations are picked up from many parts of world, but not only that, there is also these domestic blow torches we also receive such as stations on 3.185 WWRB, 3.215, and 5.070 MHz both brought to us by WWCR. These stations give us "Brother Stair" from Overcomer Ministry, Alex Jones, and various shouters that appear on the radio. Many of them tell us this basic message about how we Americans got where we are today and they put the blame on someone or some group like, for example, Adam Wieshaupt and the Illuminati. Some of the craziest stuff I can ever hear come from this radio market and WWCR also receives ads to support their station. I don't know whatever happened to WBCQ on 7.415 MHz. I have not been listening to this station recently and it is not on the air right now. This station plays various music programs and offers listeners their own show to be broadcast on the station for a fee owned by Allen Wiener. They also had A.J. on there from New Jersey who would get on the station and scream about illegal immigration and the undocumented workers. So, other than Hal Turner, this could have his sidekick. And yes, Hal Turner aired his show on WBCQ. These stations can give the radio listeners living in an sub-Saharan African village a bad impression about the U.S. since there is no internet or satellite TV. Well who supports these guys? Small contributions cannot be all they get. It is quite expensive to run a radio station from the air and it is expensive to run a world band radio station. This is the reason why many outlets such as the BBC have just about done away with shortwave broadcasting and now broadcast over the Internet instead. They also broadcast over pay radio such as Sirius or XM. Where BBC used to be on shortwave is where you may find Radio Netherlands instead.

Dr. Zakir Naik is the founder of the Islamic Research Foundation in Mumbai, India. He is also the owner of the Peace TV network. He is preceived to follow the Wahhabi tradition and this is what makes him very unpopular amongst many other Indian Muslims. He made a controversial statement sometime before the terror attack at Mumbai. He said he didn't know if Osama Bin Laden was a terrorist. He said that Osama Bin Laden was not the one who attacked America on 9/11 overtly or covertly, not saying anything about him orchestrating the attack and these guys following his orders. Also, he considered Yazid to be a prophet and offered him peace. Yazid was a caliph who murdered Hassan, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). He is disliked amongst those of the Deobandi Muslim community. His IRF conferences draw thousands upon thousands of people, which is a concern to many Indian citizens. Some communities are planning to ban these conferences. And many wonder, who supports Dr. Zakir Naik and Peace TV? Is it possible they get it from Saudi Arabia? Al-Qaida?
This is my rant for today. Who supports them? Where do they get their money?

I hope your day has been a good day.

Quranic Quotes - Surah 5:109-120

One day will Allah gather the apostles together, and ask: "What was the response ye received (From men to your teaching)?" They will say, "We have no knowledge: it is Thou Who knowest in full all that is hidden."

Then will Allah say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book of Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them, said: "This is nothing but evident magic."

"And behold! I inspired the disciples to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger, they said, 'We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims.'"

Behold! the disciples, said: "O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?" Said Jesus: "Fear Allah, if ye have faith."

They said: "We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that thou hast indeed told us the truth, and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle."

Said Jesus the son of Mary: "O Allah our Lord! Send us from heaven a table set (with viands, that there may be for us - for the first and last of us - a solemn festival and a sign from thee; and provide for our sustenence, for thou art the best Sustainer (of our needs)."

Allah said: "I will send it down unto you: But if any of you after that resisteth faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as I have not inflicted on any one among all the peoples."

And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods (ilahs) in derogation of Allah?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.

"Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit, 'worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.

"If Thou dost punish them, they are Thy servant: If Thou dost forgive them, Thou art the Exalted in power, the Wise."

Allah will say: "This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are gardens, with rivers flowing beneath, - their eternal Home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah. That is the great salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires).

To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He Who hath power over all things.

------

Differences:

Christians believe in the Trinity, 3 in 1, but the word "trinity" is not found in the Bible. God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit all the same God.

For Muslims, the word "trinity" is found in the Qur'an, but God is One God only and no one and nothing else can partner with Him. "La ilaha illa Allah muhammadun rasallulah" is found multiple times in the Qur'an, meaning, "there is no god but Allah and Muhammad (SAW) is His messenger."

A warning about filing weekly claims

Make sure you answer questions correctly. Like the first question, "Did you work for an employer for which you were paid or will be paid?" This will mess you up if you say yes, even though you did not work all last week, but still are employed with your company. If you say yes,
it is like you are not unemployed and that you have ceased receiving unemployment pay. You must say no. Otherwise, the DWS will want you to stand in line for 5 hours in order to be assisted.
Even if you want this question corrected, they want you to do that. If you call them, they will not answer you or forwarding to someone who might, but is not there to answer you either.

In my situation, I am still employed but my company is on some down time. So, receiving unemployment pay should not be a concern and since, I will be back to work next week, I am not wasting 5 hours of time standing in line so that somebody can tell me that my payment is denied because of holiday pay. Even if I get this situation corrected, it isn't worth it. I still have some cash to supplement me, so why go through this? If I mess up on answering one question that I
want corrected, I cannot get it corrected immediately. The DWS seems to want people to be stressed and stained and maybe become maniacs to get their attention only to have this problem runned up on my behind. It's not worth it. Either let the mistake stand as it is and not get pay or stand in line so nothing really gets done. No, let the mistake stand, enjoy the time off when you have it, and go back to work Monday. Then, when the time comes to file again, make sure I do not make that mistake again. This is my only option right now.
