Exclusive: CIA Station Chief in Algeria Accused of Rapes...

The CIA's station chief at its sensitive post in Algeria is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department for allegedly raping at least two Muslim women who claim he laced their drinks with a knock-out drug, U.S. law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

The suspect in the case is identified as Andrew Warren in an affidavit for a search warrant filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. by an investigator for the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service.

Officials say the 41-year old Warren, a convert to Islam, was ordered home by the U.S. Ambassador, David Pearce, in October after the women came forward with their rape allegations in September.

According to the affidavit, the two women "reported the allegations in this affidavit independently of each other."

I guess this is pretty cut and dried. Now my question is, since this guy is a Muslim (black, I think)and these women were drinking alcoholic beverages (which is against Islamic law) and they were alone with him (a no-no) will they be given 200 lashes or will they be stoned to death? It has to be one or the other.

And what, if anything, can the Federal Government do to punish him since, according to Islamic law, he committed no crime? Well??

BBC News...Echoes...

Black Washington looks to Obama...

I wonder if the BBC News has it right?

"On his desk beside the name board that tells you he is director of marching bands at Howard University in Washington DC, John Newson keeps a miniature bale of cotton."

"When he lifts it and turns it in his hands his eyes take on a curiously distant quality and stories of this country's divided past come tumbling out.

He is a dignified, professorial figure these days, but he can remember the old times in rural Louisiana when he was put out of school three hours before the local white kids and sent to the local plantation fields to chop cotton - back-breaking work for a little boy in the boiling heat of the Southern summer."

Are you crying yet? I am. It reminds me of when I was a kid and had to pick cotton to help support my family. That was from the age of five to age twelve. I pulled a gunny sack (potato sack) first then graduated to a 12 foot cotton sack.

"It is a small story of change in a country which has changed enormously since little John Newson was sent out into the cotton fields of Louisiana all those years ago.

He is moved at the idea of a black man taking power in the White House, and not just for what it says about the long road African-Americans have traveled since he baled cotton when he should have been sitting in class or playing with his friends."

My cotton picking days were back in the forties when we were considered Okie White Trash. I never wore shoes until I started to school. I didn't need them and no one cared since we were just Okies. People expected that. And people expected my siblings and me to have patched up clothes.

The BBC News tells a couple more sad stories about blacks who had it bad,(a hundred years ago) but they're too sad for me to read. I never owned a slave and don't know anyone who has but the BBC News and these people they tell about want us to remember those days anyhow, days none of us can remember because we weren't there. That'll give them an excuse to get away with things; things like blaming whitey for their troubles, and to continue to be slaves, or at least, victims

There is a lot in common between blacks and Okies. We all had hard times years ago. We both were insulted and spat upon and had to live through it.

The difference though is, we Okies don't try to blame everyone alive today for our troubles of fifty or sixty years ago. You blacks should try not blaming everyone else for your failures. Maybe then you can be proud enough of America to become Americans instead of 'African-Americans!'

$7,000,000,000 For Foreign Auto Maker...

Chrysler wants seven billion bucks to stay afloat. While Chrysler asks for 7 big ones, their top execs get millions just to stay with the company. $30,000,000.

The poor auto workers get only 65 bucks an hour in wages and benefits! How can they make it on that?

What's even funnier is, Chrysler is 20% owned by Daimler, a German company. How much will Germany give them?

The rest is owned by a private investment company,Cerberus Capital Management. I wonder how much they will get?

The fucking bums who run these companies who are sucking up the American Taxpayers money make hundreds of millions of dollars in salaries and bonuses. Look it up!

What a bunch of dummies you people are who don't understand how stupid it is to give your pennies to millionaires who don't give a shit about any of you!

And you have Obama, a racist, lying bigot as a bonus! Way to go!!!

Good advice was, "'be careful what you ask for -- you might get it'

A thought particularly appropriate to this site at this time.
A bit of wisdom is contained in this phrase.

Another aspect of this concept is the story of the dog chasing the truck -- the truck stops -- and the dog thinks -- now what do I do? Is this Obama or what!?!

Well, So Much For That Crap...

I read a post made by Chico the Wonder Dog that I think deserves posting here. It is pretty deep but maybe some of you dummies will get it('chuckle')and it reads a hell of a lot better than all of the crap that's going on in this country right now. Enjoy!

How Big Is the Universe...Where is the Center...

How big is the Universe? Now this is a dandy question. But it is really not too difficult to answer.

Yesterday I was watching (from my lofty perch) a program about the universe. The special effects were outstanding; sometimes the universe was rushing away from me,-sometimes it was rushing toward me. It was fantastic!

There were stars and planets,-even galaxies too numerous to mention or even imagine! Of course, they were imagined or else they wouldn't have been on the screen rushing about.

But to the question,"How Big is the Universe." We must consider, 'big' is a relative term. Big depends on to what 'it' is compared. To us, of course, the comparison has to be us, physically.

For instance; I am small compared to a Great Dane,-even to a Cocker Spaniel. But, compared to a flea, I am big. So there you have it.

We could say, then, a planet is large compared to us but is small compared to the sun. We know this because..-because that is our personal perception. It has to be perception because that is all we have with which to conclude.

For the same token, the sun is small compared with a galaxy. That makes sense except, all we have to go on as to the size of a galaxy is our personal perception of the size of a galaxy; we have never personally visited or measured a galaxy,-nor the sun.

But, you say, we see these things through a telescope so we know our perceptions are true and factual. Not really because we rely on certain 'facts' to draw conclusions, such as the speed of light which we perceive helps us to determine the size of things far away from us; or far away from each other. There could be a giant conspiracy of telescope makers and scientists that instill little pictures into lenses to fool us into thinking we are looking at the real thing.'duh'

Well, I think you get the idea. We are what we perceive. The earth, sun, galaxy and universe are what we perceive. So, you say, the universe is big. 'oops'.. Not necessarily. Big compared to what?

To determine if a thing is big or small, we need something with which to compare it. You say, compared to me the universe is big. Not necessarily.

If there was a thumbtack inside a large crate, you could say the thumbtack is small compared to the large crate. Or you could say the large crate is big compared to the thumbtack. OK, you got me.
Not necessarily.

The thumbtack is a real thing and the large crate is, also, a real thing; both solid to our inspection. So the thing we notice and acknowledge is, there is an inside and an outside to the crate that encompasses the thumbtack. So each of these objects is a singularity,- ergo, measurable.
Right, you say, so the big and small are more than mere perceptions; they are facts. That, of course, is right. 'Voila!'

Now on to the Universe. We see through telescopes (real ones, not fakes made up conspiratorially by scientists and telescope makers,)that the earth and planets, the sun, the galaxies and other 'heavenly' bodies are either big or small, depending on how you look at them and which first in comparison to the other.(or others) So far, so good.

Now to measure the universe. It's big, you say, because all of the aforementioned are inside it. Now I have to ask,"Inside what?" Inside the universe. That is no answer, of course, only a moot statement of (?). A personal observation or 'perception'.

For the universe to be big or small, it has to be compared to something and, since there are no observable sides, tops, bottoms or limits of any kind to the universe, and there is nothing anywhere else with which to compare it because there is nowhere else, it cannot be compared to anything. The sun and planets, the stars and galaxies,- the comets and meteors and moons and quasars and objects,- ad infinitum, are either big or small, depending on that with which they are compared.
So how big is the universe?

The universe is neither big nor small; it just 'is'.

Oh, yeah; Where is the center of the universe?

That's really easy. Todays' scientists and astrologers and space experts all agree that the objects of the universe are rushing away from us at a high rate of speed. The universe is expanding. ('duh' again)
So, what we have to do is watch the night sky from different places on the planet Earth,(we can watch the daytime sky but it isn't nearly as interesting since we can't see the stars and stuff in the daytime) and concede the determinations of the experts, that the objects of the universe are, indeed, rushing away from us and they are doing so in the same directions away, regardless of where we are on the Earth.

Now look up the definitions of the words,"Logical." and,"Conclusion," and apply them to the part here we have discussed concerning where the center of the universe is and I think you will logically conclude,-the center of the universe is wherever you are anytime you wonder about where the center of the universe is.

No, you say, it's the earth itself which is the center of the universe because you are standing on the earth!
No, no,-not so. We may be standing on the earth but the earth itself is spinning around as fast as it can, trying to get away from us, to no avail.

So, like it or not or believe it or not, even though there are no boundaries to the universe, you physically are the center of that universe! (such as it is)

Now, wasn't this better than reading more about the hypocrisies and lies of this country and the-'choke'-leaders of this country?
