heard a news story yesterday. the stimulus bill that is helping our economy so much(i hope you hear the sarcasm in my voice, or in this case, my fingers), is being used for so many wonderful things(more sarcasm). a grant was given to a university. the grant was for over $800,000. what was the money used for you ask? they put together a team to teach uncircumcised men how to properly wash their genitals. yes you read that correctly.
with great projects like this, i cant imagine why the economic recovery hasn't blasted off. i mean, teaching some guy in Africa how to wash his junk clearly is a fantastic was to create jobs here in the USA(more sarcasm).
shame on you people for not trusting the government to spend our money wisely. you know you just need to give plans like this time to work. remember, your just a bunch of racists if you don't agree with how the president is doing things(sarcasm, sarcasm, sarcasm).

There is a bit of trouble going on right now because a church has gotten a hold of several copies of the Koran(about 150 at last count) that they plan on burning. i would like to say that i agree that this is insensitive and they seem to me to be trying to provoke a response of some sort. having said that, they are within their rights to burn these books. i read a report that referred to the Koran as a "holy book." the government and the press has made a mountain out of a mole-hill on this one. first we are talking about a church of about 50 members. second, we are talking about 150 copies. they are not trying to destroy every copy there is. although they probably would if they could. they story is much bigger now than it every should have been.
my next and real problem with all of this is, how have other such acts been treated? i have seen video of people protesting the general conference for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, that have tossed the "book of Mormon" on the ground, stepped on it and set fire to it. why no out rage from the media or government on that one? why are they not worried that the Mormons will be offended and start an uprising? there are several million Mormons that are here in this country that have the means to organise some trouble. Mormons hold the book of Mormon to be a holy book. why are they not afraid of outrage from this group. i have another example. a church group had a few cases of bibles printed up to be handed out to the people of Afghanistan. they shipped them over to a soldier. when those in command found out, they not only said that they could not hand them out(which may be agenst regulation), but they confiscated the bibles. and what did they do with those bibles(we know there are plenty of people that believe the bible is holy)? they had them burned. why were they not afraid of the out rage that would come from burning this holy book. don't they know Christians world wide might be offended by the burning of there holy writings. there are many Christians world wide with the means to organise and support an uprising.
Why the Difference?

if your martial arts instructor tells you that he has a student that is training to do a cage fight in November, and wants to know if you will be a regular sparing partner for this guy, before you agree, you should probably find out that it is the 350lb former semi-pro football player, college wrestler guy that he wants you to work out with. these little bits of info can be important.

Renae and i have been together for almost 17 years now. in all those years we have been through a lot. On many occasions, she has told me i was crazy. On a few occasions she has told me she didn't want me to do some thing. last night, for the first time ever, she put the two together and said, "that's crazy, i dint think you should do it." i was stunned. is it because I'm getting old and she doesn't think I'm capable of doing crazy stuff any more? who knows. will i take her advice? probably not.
