First off, thanks for taking the time to drop by. HimOverSin, aka Hos, aka Craig. They only allow me 1,200 letters? That's just not fair. I mean, my love for my computer is a good 800 letters alone. To talk "About Me" I have to mention Jesus since He's all that is good in me. I also love my family, country, and free speech, so speak freely in a respectful way.

"We strongly urge the FDA not to approve silicone gel breast implants," NOW president Kim Gandy told the FDA's scientific advisory panel. NOW, aka National Organization of Women, felt that these breast implants were dangerous to woman's health. Many women also testified that they wanted silicone implants...
Tons of studies also show that there is a high risk of physical and/or emotional damage to a woman who get abortions. So abortions on demand, no matter what trimester the unborn baby are in, are ok, but these breast implants are not? The FDA voted 5-4 to barely keep the ban on the implants.
Woman's right to choose in some cases but not others? NOW and other groups are for woman's rights if the rights meet their agenda. Here is a non-prolife scientific source below showing that low income women who have abortions have a 2.6 times greater risk to psychiatric treatment then low income women who birth their children.
Just know this. I like to post pictures to show the story. I did a google search on "abortion" and clicked on "pictures." I will never forget the pictures I saw. Shout "woman's rights" all you want. Check out the pictures before you do though. I won't show you what I saw. Maybe I should have.
Watching both political sides point fingers at each other is really comical. The Republicans want to privatize a small portion of Social Security (SS). How would voluntarily giving only 5% of one's SS earnings to the stock market help "shore up SS?" I know Prez. Bush's plan is more detailed then that but that is all we here about. That's his problem for not getting the word out effectively.
It's even more sad that Democrat congressmen have been able to sell this minor privatization issue to the democrats... and their fellow Democrats believe it's a big deal since their leaders tell them it is! Privatizing 5% will not hurt and if it's "too risky" to do that 40 year investment then opt out but some people would love to have ownership in their own accounts. Anyway, how will real reform ever happen if Republicans don't have the political will do fix it and democrats will balk at anything they suggest. Don't you think this would be a fine time for democrat Senators to counter attack with a better plan of their own??
Where's their plan to fix SS? hmmm. Do Democrats want Rush Limbaugh to do one of his sarcastic "see, I told ya so" speeches that Democrats don't want to fix anything so the issue will always be there and the people will need them in office to "fix it." That the people have a psychological fixation to the government to resolve all their problems, (though the problems never get fixed.) The only thing I've heard is in this article link in the blog title that Sen. Kerry wants to repeal "tax cuts for the rich" to help pay for SS. Oh my oh my. Is Rush right?
Pork will probably be gone from government when... well, when pigs fly.
Save yer money now for retirement and cut out your pork! We can't control the government too much besides letters and voting but we can control our finances.

Just know that no matter what the year "is," God knows when it's time to call Jesus back to judge the world. One can take Jesus out the year but the year knows who made time and when eternity comes on the White Horse.

It's sad that some people make a living suing others. Maybe this will make an example of one and hinder some others from doing it. I'm taking the family to Wendy's this evening for a burger and picnic. I like my burger for only a dollar and you know who pays for lawsuits and it isn't the business...

More good things happening in Iraq that you will not hear about in mainstream media outlets:
The title link is a story showing not only projects being done to create infrastructure in Iraq, but many times local projects are done by local businesses. This not only helps their economy but creates an ownership society as opposed to having the work done by others. This pride helps stability for everyone... but the bad guys that is.
"At the end of March, 89 projects were completed within the Gulf Region Northern District, or GRN. Currently there are more than 475 projects in progress, with more than 180 projects forecast completed in April. Another 99 projects are forecast to begin in April."
Cool update showing the 55 most wanted fugitives in Iraq. Most have been captured or killed.
Great web site with documentation correcting common mistakes people have about the war.
Rarelly heard stories and blogs from people who live in Iraq.
American Islamic Congress discusses terrorism, Iraq, and other important issues.
I know, there's still a long road to go. It is getting shorter though and as long as Iran doesn't boil over, our troops can come home soon. That's something we all agree on.

Photograph of Michael Moore by Pascal Guyot/Agence France-Presse
"Yes! I'm finally rich!"
Ok, I'm a little late on responding to "Fahrenheit 9/11" but it took me this long to read the laundry list of errors, half-truths, and lies from authors who researched the movie's problems!
It is so distasteful to make money on the 9/11 tragedy which woke us up that thousands of people are at war with us. It was the modern Pearl Harbor. Add to that the one-sided "facts" about Prez Bush's handling of the war.
This movie is surely now a recruitment tool for our enemies as our soldiers fight them with some dying. This link in the title shows 59 falsehoods in the movie. (It is in .pdf format.) This link below is really unbelievable. Moore did a web chat in England just last Janurary. some things he said, "Our troops lost their moral compass so that's why they want to fight in Iraq." And, "The next 4 years will have President Bush take out the middle class and give money to the rich," etc. He left out other stereotypes like Republicans are racists, sexist, homophobic, and elitist.
Maybe Moore will go to Iraq to see those whom he's helping, maybe he'll visit our troops after that. I'm not saying that I'm opposed to free speech or think his movie should be censored. I'm simply showing a link to possible lies then a link to show what he really thinks and you make up your own mind.

We have uber geeks ready to rock terrorist butt. Go ahead, make their day. Joint Functional Component Command for Network Warfare, or JFCCNW is ready to roll.
Should they secretly take out web sites like the one who showed an American being hacked to death so they can use it as a morbid terrorist recruitment tool? Oh yeah. The internet is all about free speech but murder is not free speech. Anyone who thinks otherwise might want to consider that any one of us could be the next hostage to be paraded as recruitment for the jihad.

You have a baby and all is well. Why not possibly save a life as well? Donate the umbilical cord so scientists can pull stem cells from it and freeze them. Ask your doctor if the hospital where you or your spouse is having the baby offers this life-saving service.
These stem cells from the cord have the amazing ability to morph into the blood needed by the body. Here's a long list of diseases that cord stem cells cures or helps with:
Your baby has life, why not save another one as well? The cord helps no one in the trash.

Now this witch didn't get to speak. The ACLU joined her lawsuit and the poor ACLU lost once again on a federal appeal. Wiccans are a religion! They say they worship mother earth though their prayers are focused on evil to gain their power.
"The court is allowing Chesterfield County to prefer some religions over others when it conducts its meetings' opening prayers," said Kent Willis, executive director of the Virginia ACLU. "This runs counter to every notion our Founding Fathers had about freedom of religion and separation of church and state."
Ok, the "state" is allowing "some religions over others" as this ACLU spokesman said. How hypercritical is that?! They admit that wiccans are a religion then the very next sentence say there should be a separation of church and state even though they are suing for a religion to pray at a "state" event. I know, I know, what he meant was that ALL religions should be allowed to talk. Sorry bud. The "Seperation Clause" isn't in the Constitution, please show where ALL religions MUST be allowed to talk. No, numerous religions in this county were allowed to speak. That fulfills the "requirement" of not establishing ONE religion. Doesn't mean all religions have to be given equal time.
You can't separate religion from public life. We ALL worship something. From a president to the homeless man down the street. Mainline religions to worship of the self or the Wiccan's "horned god." The ACLU will keep trying to poke it in our eyes but my eyes are wide open, thanks.

Iraq Before It Was Iraq
IRAQ - VERY INTERESTING - DID YOU KNOW?
1. The garden of Eden was in Iraq.
2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!
3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.
4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!
6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq.
7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq.
9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel.
10. Amos cried out in Iraq!
11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem.
12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq!
13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person in the fiery furnace!)
14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing on the wall" in Iraq.
15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.
16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq.
17. The wise men were from Iraq.
18. Peter preached in Iraq.
19. The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called Babylon, which was a city in Iraq!
And you have probably seen this one. Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible. But do you know which nation is second? It is Iraq! However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible. The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia. The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The name Iraq, means country with deep roots.
This poor guy in Germany has a stinky job. Ok, enough puns. It's for some study on cows or something or other, I don't know. I just think it's funny and makes me not feel so bad about my current situation job-wise.
"The teenager is satisfied with working on a farm, and has other chores as well. 'Working outdoors is right for me, because I like fresh air. Not everyone could do this. It's not for city folks,' Hauge told Jaerbladet." He makes 10 bucks an hour.

It will be open to all faiths and the inmates will work too and the money will go to paying the expenses there, victim restitution, and savings. Very very nice!
I look forward to studies about the recidivism rate of these inmates after they get out. I wonder if it will be lower. It couldn't be any higher then it is now. Most studies show that traditional rehabilitation methods don't work. It's past time for this to be tried.

Click on the title for this quote from the Iran side of the "truth:"
"In recent talks between Iranian and European negotiators in Geneva, it was proven that Iran’s argument for producing nuclear fuel is economically justifiable, and Iran plans to become a major player in the field, Asefi said.
He stated that there were intense discussions in Geneva on “mutual guarantees”, with Iran asking the EU to give an irreversible guarantee that Iran has the legitimate right to all nuclear technology meant for civilian purposes and the EU asking Iran to give an objective guarantee that its nuclear program would not be diverted from its peaceful course.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman, Asefi, said that Iran’s objective guarantees would be logical, reasonable, balanced, and scientifically practicable. Asefi described the latest round of Iran-EU talks as "deeper and more professional". Iran has given the EU an opportunity to prove that it is a major player in the international arena, he added.
Iran suspended uranium enrichment in November 2004 as a goodwill gesture in the run-up to the talks with EU states, but said the suspension would be a matter of months rather than years."
Man, another day, another war? Then is Syria next after Iran?? I know it might be necessary, but I still don't think America is up to it, weather if it's right or not in this complex global silent war age. I'm up for what is best regardless of the short term costs, but who knows what the benefit is until the distant future. Then in this future we'll either be killed by a nuke or it was all a hoax. And was that really a hoax or did Bush "nip it in the bud?"
2nd guessing is a problem. Prez. Bush cannot win. Either no more terrorists will attack and people will say he made up the whole issue. (Even though the US may have thwarted many attempts.) Or a huge attack will happen and he didn't stop it. Oh well.
In the year 2004, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United States, and said, "Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans."
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, "You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark.
"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"
"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed. I needed a building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision. Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it. Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go! When I started gathering the animals, I got sued by an animal rights group. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodation was too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space. Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on Your proposed flood. I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew. Immigration and Naturalization is checking the green-card status of most of the people who want to work. The trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark-building experience. To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species. So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark!"
Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean You're not going to destroy the world?".
"No," said the Lord. "The government beat me to it."

"There Ya Go Again!"
After helping Afghanistan and Iraq, after saving Kuwait's rear end from imperialism, Libya stopped making nukes, etc. How much more can America do? Iran is looking to make nuclear weapons and I don't think too many people would disagree with that but what will happen if they fail to stop making them yet again? One or more of the possibilities below:
* US will attack Iran
* Israel will attack Iran
* CIA help spur a real resistance in Iran to get their leaders focusing on their own survival.
* Civil war since the younger generation isn't too "hip" about the Mullah's rule.
* I suppose nothing if Bush doesn't think he can legally use the pre-emptive Bush doctrine on them.
Iran has repeatedly made official anti-Semitic remarks that basically the only good Jewish person is a dead one. State-sponsored terrorism is a fact according to cia.gov. Their army is smaller then Saddams and America wiped them out, so a nuke would be advantageous for their political survival as a bargaining chip.
If Iran makes a few nukes then they can flatten Tel Aviv with one then have a few more for defensive counter attacks. What if they get this Bomb(s)? At the same time, what is the World's, and more importantly, America's tolerance for more war even if it might save Israel or ourselves from a larger attack down the road from this nuke(s)?
As this article says, Iran shouldn't have a need for expensive nuclear fuels since they have more oil and gas then almost any other country. Iran needing nuclear power makes about as much sense as America needing to import corn.

I have been without work, some call it disemployed or aemployed. Some even call it unemployed. As strange to not "work" as it has been, it's been great. My wife and I have never been as close. My kids respond to me, even laugh at my jokes at times. I know it's weird but love takes time and effort and the family must be the priority.
Some will scoff and say it's too hard since they are working 3rd shift or just "don't have the time." What's more important, a big house and new car or your legacy as a parent and spouse? The big sale is nothing compared to the big gym class or soccer game. Think back to when you were a kid. Did your parent(s) let you down? Do you need to do the same? Move to a smaller house, change your job, go back to school to get a better job knowing that it's temporary. Change a life, your family is worth it. Best thing? It's never too late...

Misc. Stuff, Etc.
Cars that have 2 engines to run at the same time, on compressed air and electric and could be available much sooner then fuel cells... take that $2.00 gallon gas! I'll wait for the larger SUV model though, how does one put child car seats in some of these tin cans?
No such thing as black holes in outer space according to some new "research." The horrific movie was enough to convince me that they probably don't exist. (link below)
In the near future, MIT is creating laptops for a 100 bucks for 3rd world countries school kids. Cool, knowledge is power! I wouldn't mind one either...
"In a rural Cambodian village where the homes lack electricity, the nighttime darkness is pierced by the glow from laptops that children bring from school."
Last but NOT least:
I can't find the link but I read that Best Buy is phasing out rebates. No more giving out your address to do the work THEY should be doing in the first place. This should happen in the next 2 years, other companies should follow suit.
The free market, long live it!

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
Click on the title and look at a flash presentation of the latest soldier to get the Metal of Honor. (On my computer, I needed to use Internet Explorer to view it.) The Metal of Honor is the highest metal given to a soldier in the USA. For the love of his country? Probably. For the love of his friends? No doubt.

"The persecution statistics from a small branch of China’s large house-church movement, which has 500,000 members in 40 church groups, are shocking. The investigation revealed that between 1983 and 2001, 23,686 people were arrested for religious activities; 4,014 were sentenced to “re-education” in labor camps; 129 were killed; 208 were permanently handicapped because of torture; 997 were placed under surveillance; 1,040 disappeared; more than 20,000 were beaten; and 10,000 were fined (ranging from 50 cents U.S. to $800,000 U.S.)."
Another article goes on to say that there are about 700,000 Christians in China. Over a thousand a day are coming to the Faith. Wow. Think you got it tough, try going to church without a Bible to someone's home and hope that no one there is a spy for the government or one of the cults that also persecute Christians there.

The Korean War lasted from 1950-53. Over 54,000 died as part of Containment Policy of the Communists during the Cold War. (Fighting the spread of communism.)
War in Iraq may last about 3 years too with 1,533 deaths as of today. Part of Bush Doctrine to fight terrorism and countries that support it. (Fighting the spread of terrorism.)
Many mistakes from Gen. McArthur like inciting the Chinese to join the fray. (Though overall a brilliant commander.) The war was very political being a UN event which caused further mistakes and added even more tough American lives to the death toll.
Now some retired troops speak about wrong armor and if we should be there. Also some talk about major and minor tactical mistakes.
Many Korean War atrocities occurred on both sides.
All wars have atrocities but I would guess that the Iraq War has few in comparison due to the extensive media presence and cultural awareness of our valiant troops.
Why do I say all this?
No "Korean War Vets Against the War" ever existed (that I know of.) Even after the Red Scare evaporated during the 1960's, these vets never spoke up in an organized way. Why? I don't know. They fought and died for similar circumstances as our troops today. Though so many more died and the military mistakes had an even greater cost back then. They weren't fighting to stop terrorists from coming over here, they were fighting communism half the world away.
I know they were part of the "Greatest Generation." They are also part of the "Silent Generation." Maybe that's it. They just that they didn't want to rock the boat about what happened. Or maybe they just did the job they were given and came back home to begin again in peace and silence.
A few "vets against the Iraqi War" groups are starting to pop up. It's their right to speak out against the government but after Sept. 11th and the Bush Doctrine came into effect, why did those people join the armed forces? War is a messy business. The government and our military leaders are made up of people who make mistakes. Not enough armor, more this and that, shouldn't of been there, etc.
This may be true or may not. I respect our soldier's sacrifices from the Forgotten War heroes of the Korean War, today's elite men and women, and all war vets for that matter. I hope that these new anti war vet groups will be respectful while they attempt to do what Vietnam vet anti-war protestors utterly failed to do. (Yes, they succeeded in getting the troops home quicker but at what cost to the morale of our fighting troops and POW's??) The ends should never justify the means.
Support the troops but not government decisions - Fine. It's tough to do but our fighting soldiers deserve that respect to support them. We'll see what these new anti-war vet groups do. Some Vietnam vet war protestors came home from the jungle with drug addictions. Since there isn't near as much of that going on today in Iraq, maybe their sober minds will help them choose their words more carefully.
