A Crash Course in Mid-East History

Even those who aren't particularly sympathetic to Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, could get a good measure of satisfaction from this interview with British Television during the retaliation against Hamas' shelling of Israel.The interviewer asked him: "How come so many more Palestinians have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" (A nasty question if there ever was one!)

Netanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?"

Interviewer: (Falling into the trap) Why not?

Netanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than Britishand Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that the warwas caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the German blitz onLondon, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to deathmore German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima.Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb theGestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their targetand fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps you have another question?"

Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu gave another interview and was asked about Israel's occupation of Arab lands. His response was, "It's our land". The reporter (CNN or the like) was stunned - read below "It's our land..." It's important information since we don't get fair and accurate reporting from the media and facts tend to get lost in the jumble of daily events.

"Crash Course on the Arab-Israeli Conflict." Here are overlooked facts in the current & past Middle East situation.

These were compiled by a Christian university professor: BRIEF FACTS ON THE ISRAELI CONFLICT TODAY..

(It takes just 1.5 minutes toread!) It makes sense and it's not slanted. Jew and non-Jew -- it doesn't matter.
1. Nationhood and Jerusalem: Israel became a nation in 1312 BC, two thousand (2000) years before the rise of Islam.
2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.
3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BC, the Jews have had dominion over theland for one thousand (1000) years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.
4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 lasted no more than 22years.
5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leadersdid not come to visit.
6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish HolyScriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.
7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.
8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.
9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews.Sixty-eight percent left (many in fear of retaliation by their own brethren,the Arabs), without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed wereafforded the same peace, civility, and citizenship rights as everyone else.
10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.
11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to bearound 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimatedto be the same.
12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into theArab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people'slands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.
13. The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation.The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.
14. The PLO's Charter still calls for the destruction of the State ofIsrael. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.
15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jewswere denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of allfaiths.
16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.
17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.
18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.
19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like apolicy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. These are incredible times. We have to ask what our role should be. What will we tell our grandchildren about what we did when there was a turning point in Jewish destiny, an opportunity to make a difference?

9/11

My father-in-law, who I am lucky enough to know and love dearly, has the dubious honor of reading s0me of the victims of 9/11 at ground zero tomorrow.

I can't imagine anyone so deserving of such an honor... He has fought for America in his beliefs which only he need answer to.

I won't speak for or against his beliefs which I have no place nor the ability to jugdge, other than someone picked the right man not to be honored, but to honor all those lost, and then some.

Top 4 adult jokes of 2009

Fourth Place:
A man bumps into a woman in a hotel lobby and as he does, his elbow goes into her breast. They are both quite startled. The man turns to her and says, 'Ma'am, if your heart is as soft as your breast, I know you'll forgive me.' She replies, 'If your penis is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 221.'

Third Place:
One night, as a couple lays down for bed, the husband starts rubbing his wife's arm. The wife turns over and says 'I'm sorry honey, I've got a gynecologist appointment tomorrow and I want to stay fresh..' The husband, rejected, turns over. A few minutes later, he rolls back over and taps his wife again. 'Do you have a dentist appointment tomorrow too?'

Runner Up:
Bill worked in a pickle factory. He had been employed there for a number of years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer. His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Bill said he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to overcome the compulsion on his own. One day a few weeks later, Bill came home and his wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong. 'What's wrong, Bill?' she asked. 'Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the 20 pickle slicer?' 'Oh, Bill, you didn't' she exclaimed. 'Yes, I did.' he replied. 'My God, Bill, what happened?' 'I got fired.' 'No, Bill. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?' 'Oh...she got fired too.

Winner:
A couple had been married for 50 years. They were sitting at the breakfast table one morning when the wife says, 'Just think, fifty years ago we were sitting here at this breakfast table together.' 'I know,' the old man said. 'We were probably sitting here naked as a jaybird fifty years ago.' 'Well,' Granny snickered. 'Let's relive some old times.' Where upon, the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table.'You know, honey,' the little old lady breathlessly replied, 'My nipples are as hot for you today as they were fifty years ago.' 'I wouldn't be surprised,' replied Gramps. 'One's in your coffee and the other is in your oatmeal. ===============================================

another Day, another Czar

It seems Chairman Obama isn't finished with installing commies in every sector of or society against the Constitution which he uses as toilet paper.

Ron Bloom, the new Manufacturing Czar, is so reminiscent of the governmentcretins in "atlas shrugged", it's no longer funny.

Government Healthcare

How stoopid are the American people who still want to embrace this? It's a rhetorical question which will be explained to us with Obama's rhetoric next week.

Experiment

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that socialism WILL work and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on THE PLAN All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.

Letter I just sent to FoxNews- GlennBeck

(I anticipate being ignored)



You need look no further than "Medicaid". I have seen dental coverage for Medicaid as a provider. I'm a healthcare provider. I was a doctor, which means "teacher", until I was devalued. The focus up to now has been on Medicare, a totally different beast.

Our aging population, which has paid into Medicare, is about to have that pulled out from under them. There is no dental care provided for there.

However, take a look at Medicaid.

Look at the limitations and exclusions for healthcare which we have been providing to the poor and the illegal aliens. This is what the government has in mind for the rest of us.

Forget about cutting edge technologies. It's a minimum cost they're after.

After all, how many teeth do the government experts say you need before you qualify for a denture? Nevermind such luxuries as root canals, crowns, fixed bridges, or God forbid, implants, gum surgery.....Take a close look.

Cut costs- extract, get a blender.

I'll buy the olive

Ramblings


Am I missing something here?They are honoring Scott Speicher, as they should..He was the first casualty of the First Gulf War, on Jan 17, 1991.It was believed he was MIA, held prisoner since then His wife married his best friend on July 4, 1992.

bite my shillaleh said...
Am I missing something here?The Lockerbie Bomber of Flt 103 may be set free by the Scottish for humanitarian reasons

Les Paul is DEAD.where's the outrage?

Doctors have been denigrated to "healthcare providers" in order to de value what they do for us. So why are they worth so little when they help us and so much if they don't? No disrespect for hair care professionals and travel professionals. Nor for the training for such careers as cashier training institute or sanitation engineer. These are all important functions for society., but I have trouble with parity.

Why aren't lawyers, attorneys and politicians called: Legal providers and law givers?

Why do they ask me to cut back on electric use when I used maybe $60 of electric each month this summer, but get billed about $250 for delivery and taxes? Are they trucking it to me?

Same with my phone bill. I make $5 worth of calls but get charged over $200 in my office and not much less at home. Good thing we finally paid off the Spanish-American war. And we still haven't caught Osama or Panco Villa for that matter.

I don't want to send this as an email because I might get reported to the Gestapo, um, uh, the White House for disagreeing with th SS, I mean, Tsars, Czars, by the watchdogs who are asked to report such negative thoughts. So I'll just post this link here, and let people who wander in and want to check it out, decide for themselves if these statistics warrant any serious consideration.

Then again, maybe I can get a beer out of the deal or have an ex-President come by for a photo-op.

Healthcare fix

How did we get to this place?

100 years ago the average life expectancy was about 45 years in the US. In the 40's, 50's and 60's, the cream of the crop, the best minds, went into medicine as a career. WWII gave the GI bill which helped with education. The draft, and deferment for education, made competition for the cream of the cream to succeed. Plenty of incentive to study rather than be targets in Korea and Viet Nam.

Unhindered, doctors and scientists were able to add many healthy years to this. when did things start to go awry?

Lawyers and politicians became involved. They made way for the gov't and private 3rd parties to get involved. The gov't wanted to expand to all. The ins. co.s got to hold the purse strings. And through the 70's, 80's and 90's these groups all wanted more and more all the while pointing fingers at the doctors, pharmaceutical companies and each other, while stuffing their own pockets with your healthcare dollars.

The solution is to come to reality: Do the opposite of what has been occurring; disentangle and disengage. Lawyers should only be involved when gross negligence, and I mean really bad medicine, is involved (eg:Michael Jackson's doc)

People get sick. People die. Politicians won't change that fact and interference between doctors and patients will only continue to lower quality os care while increasing the costs.

We've Been Down This Road Before

Not that long ago, a certain successful segment of society was the scapegoat for the ills of the people around them. It seems this may be happening again. A new location, polling of buzz words, but basically the same as before.
A messianic figure, mesmerizing the crowds. pointing a finger at the successful white people who kept them down. Take there stuff by force. Force them to work and redistribute that. No longer a productive member of society? Too old? It's time to remove them for the greater good. The only things missing (so far) are zyklon B and crematoria.

The Obamas are to take a $20,000,000.00+ vacation on Martha's Vinyard. Before or after he throws the hero cop/fall guy a beer. And insists that Congress remain in session to shove ....a healthcare plan, achem, at us before they break. the nice professor says we should just move on...

I knew Abe Lincohn, and You, Sir Are No Abe Lincoln

Dear Mr. President:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

.....Abraham Lincoln

The knock....

The knock....
Someday soon, I expect the knock at my door. Or the knocking down of my door.
Not because I am a bad American, but because I am still an old-time American. And I suspect that's no longer the thing to be.
What America is becoming, has become, scares the dickens out of me.
And not just for one or 2 differences of opinion with the majority, mob rule.
It's the core of what made America great through the end of the 20th century.
Sure there where faults. But most were being overcome logically. The problem is the illogical usurption of what could have been wih the future we now face.

Set Back????

This is a libel case brought by the English Chiropractic Assosciation against Simon Singh.

The hipocracy of the British court is that he needs to prove himself innocent rather than the burden of proof of his guilt


Coming to an American court near you very soon.

The English High Court has made a disappointing and illiberal ruling in this case. It is requiring Simon to show that the BCA acted with deliberate dishonesty in promoting chiropractic for various children's ailments (including asthma). This is because Simon used the word "bogus" in the original article.This is an undeniable setback.For further information, see: http://www.facebook.com/l/;http://jackofkent.blogspot.com/2009/05/bca-v-singh-astonishingly-illiberal.htmlPlease post messages of support on this group page. Simon reads and deeply appreciates each one.

Swine Flu Fallacy

More people die each year from influenza in the US than from this swine flu. Sure it's more of a problem in Mexico. Look at their healthcare system and sanitary conditions. It is NOT an epidemic. It has been shown NOT to be any more lethal than most strains. What it is is a diversion by the gov't and media from the real news, such as the the gov'ts budget, so they can get it past us all. It will be a problem if universal healthcare is enacted

GEICO SUCKS

I have been paying in to GEICO for the past many years for my car, never had so much a parking ticket during this time, never made a claim. I needed roadside assistance today, which I pay for, was told they would be coming to help me in 1 1/2 hours. 3 dozen plus phone calls over 4 plus hours and they never came. After which I had to push my car through Manhattan for 1 1/2 miles today. I had to send my young daughter home in a cab by herself for the first time today. They lied to me over and over and over again on the phone that they were sending someone. Eventually, someone called trying to gouge me saying I would have to leave the car with him and he would have to order parts. Order parts? He didn't even see what was wrong with the car. I hope that Gecko dies a miserable and painful death!

The Erosion Continues

What is being eroded in this case is the 2nd Amendment. The loss of our rights will not come as a full frontal assault, but rather, it will come as small, hit and run attacks, like this one. The anti-gun zealots will create any excuse they can, then find a friendly, leftist court to back them up.

We should all know the Left will not simply take last years SCOTUS decision sitting down, especially since they've been trying to disarm law-abiding citizens for decades. Already, the DC city council has drafted a bill that would virtually reinstitute their total gun ban. They're hoping to find a way around the SCOTUS decision. They will not give up. They will not stop trying. And if the American people respond to this attack on our rights, the way they respond to everything else, we can kiss our guns goodbye!

Telling it like it is

: Telling it as it is (worth reading and so true!!!)





Date: Sat, 03 Jan 2009 To All My Valued Employees, There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn't pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job; however, is the changing political landscape in this country. However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interests. First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for every business owner there is a back story. This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you see me park my Subaru Outback outside. You've seen my big home at last year's Christmas party. I'm sure all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealised thoughts about my life. However, what you don't see is the back story. I started this company 28 years ago. At that time, I lived in a 2 bedroom flat for 3 years. My entire living area was converted into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you. My diet consisted of baked beans, stew and soup because every dollar I spent went back into this company. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a wonky transmission. I didn't have time to go out with women. Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business -- hard work, discipline, and sacrifice. Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a modest $50,000 a year and spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting the David Jones for the latest hot fashion item, I was trolling through the discount store extracting any clothing item that didn't look like it was birthed in the 70's. My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into a business with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford these luxuries my friends supposedly had.. So, while you physically arrive at the office at 9am, mentally check in at about noon, and then leave at 5pm, I don't. There is no "off" button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have the freedom. I eat, and breathe this company every minute of the day. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. Every day this business is attached to my hip like a 1 year old special-needs child. You, of course, only see the fruits of that garden -- the nice house, the Subaru, the vacations... you never realise the back story and the sacrifices I've made. Now, the economy is falling apart and I, the guy that made all the right decisions and saved his money, have to bail-out all the people who didn't. The people that overspent their pay suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed a decade of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits but the price I've paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the cost of running this business, and employing you, is starting to eclipse the threshold of marginal benefit and let me tell you why: I am being taxed to death and the government thinks I don't pay enough. I have state taxes. Federal taxes. Property taxes. Sales and use taxes. Payroll taxes. Workers compensation. Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a accountant to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulations and all the accounting that goes with it, now occupy most of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a cheque to the Australian tax Office for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my "stimulus" cheque was? Zero. Zip. Zilch. The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business? Or, the single mother sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare cheque? Obviously, government feels the latter is the economic stimulus of this country. The fact is, if I deducted (Read: Stole) 50% of your pay you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? That's nuts. Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, I agree which is why your job is in jeopardy. Here is what many of you don't understand ... to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Had the government suddenly mandated to me that I didn't need to pay taxes, guess what? Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Canberra black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But you can forget it now. When you have a comatose man on the verge of death, you don't defibrillate and shock his thumb thinking that will bring him back to life, do you? Or, do you defibrillate his heart? Business is at the heart of Australia and always has been.. To restart it, you must stimulate it, not kill it. But the power brokers in Canberra believe the poor of Australia are the essential drivers of the Australian economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change you can keep. So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, my reaction will be swift and simple. I fire you. I fire your co-workers. You can then plead with the government to pay for your mortgage, your 4WD and your child's future. Frankly, it isn't my problem any more. Then, I will close this company down, move to another country, and retire. You see, I'm done. I'm done with a country that penalises the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, will be my citizenship. So, if you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a politicians that swept through this country changed its financial landscape forever. If that happens, you can find me sitting on a beach, retired, and with no employees to worry about.... Signed, Your boss

For Dr Snorpht von Fingerpoots

Understanding Engineers - Take One-------------------------------------------Two engineering students were walking across a university campus when one said, Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The second engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway." Understanding Engineers -

Take Two--------------------------------------------To the optimist, the glass is half full.To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.Understanding Engineers -

Take Three---------------------------------------------A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, "What's with those blokes? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!" The priest said, "Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with him." He said, "Hello, George! what's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The greens keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime." The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight."The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do for them." The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"Understanding Engineers -

Take Four-------------------------------------------- What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers?Mechanical engineers build weapons and civil engineers build targets. Understanding Engineers -

Take Five--------------------------------------------The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?"The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?" The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"Understanding Engineers -

Take Six ------------------------------------------ Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the possible designers of the human body.One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints." Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections."The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?" Understanding Engineers -

Take Seven---------------------------------------------Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet. Understanding Engineers -

Take Eight---------------------------------------------An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want." Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

So, what have we learned in 2 millennia?

So, what have we learned in 2 millennia?"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Hump Day Funnies

Sent in by a Bud in San Diego------



We have the standard 6ft. fence in the backyard, and a few months ago, I heard about burglaries increasing dramatically in the entire city.

To make sure this never happened to me, I got an electric fence and ran a single wire along the top of the fence. Actually, I got the biggest cattle charger Tractor Supply had, made for 26 miles of fence.

I then used an 8 ft. long ground rod, drove 7.5 feet into the ground. The ground rod is the key, with the more you have in the ground, the better the fence works.

One day I'm mowing the back yard with my cheapo Walmart 6hp bigwheel pushmower. The hot wire is broken and laying out in the yard. I knew for a fact that I unplugged the charger. I pushed the mower around the wire and reached down to grab it, to thro w it out of the way. It seems as though I hadn't remembered to unplug it after all.

Now I'm standing there, I've got the running lawnmower in my right hand and the 1.7 gigavolt fencewire in the other hand. Keep in mind the charger is about the size of a marine battery and has a picture of an upside down cow on fire on the cover.

Time stood still. The first thing I notice is my balls trying to climb up the front side of my body. My ears curled downwards and I could feel the lawnmower ignition firing in the backside of my brain. Every time that Briggs & Stratt on rolled over, I could feel the spark in my head. I was literally at one with the engine. It seems as though the fence charger and the POS lawnmower were fighting over who would control my electrical impulses.

Science says one cannot crap, pee, and get a nut at the same time. I beg to differ. Not only did I do all three at once, but my bowels emptied 3 different times in less than half of a second. It was a Matrix kind of bowel movement, where time is creeping along and you're all leaned back and BAM BAM BAM you just crap your pants 3 times. It seemed like there were minutes in between but in reality it was so close together it was like exhaust pulses from a big block Chevy turning 8 grand.

At this point I'm about 30 minutes (maybe 2 seconds) into holding onto the fence wire. My hand is wrapped around the wire palm down so I cant let go. I grew up on a farm so I know all about electric fences... but Dad always had those POS chargers made by International or whoever that were like 9 volts and just kinda tickled. This I could not let go of. The 8 foot long ground rod is now accepting signals from me through the permadamp Ark-La-Tex river bottom soil. At this point I'm thinking I'm going to have to just man up and take it, until the lawnmower runs out of gas.

'Damn!,' I think, as I remember I just filled the tank! Now the lawnmower is starting to run rough. It has settled into a loping run pattern as if it had<> some kind of big lawnmower race cam in it. Covered in poop, pee, jizz, and with my balls on my chest I think 'Oh God please die... pleeeeze die'. But nooooo, it settles into the rough lumpy cam idle nicely and remains there, like a big bore roller cam EFI motor waiting for the go command from its owner's right foot.

So here I am in the middle of July, 104 degrees, 80% humidity, standing in my own backyard, begging God to kill me. God did not take me that day... he left me there covered in my own fluids to writhe in the misery my own stupidity had created.

I honestly don't know how I got loose from the wire... I woke up laying on the ground hours later. The lawnmower was beside me, out of gas. It was later on in the day and I was sunburned. There were two large dead grass spots where I had been standing, and then another long skinny dead spot were the wire had layed while I was on the ground still holding on to it.

I assume I finally had a seizure and in the resulting thrashing had somehow let go of the wire. Upon waking from my electrically induced sleep I realized a few things.

1- Three of my teeth seem to have melted.
0A
2- I now have cramps in the bottoms of my feet and my right butt cheek (not the left, just the right).

3- Poop, pee, and semen when all mixed together, do not smell as bad a you might first think.

4- My left eye will not open.

5- My right eye will not close.

6- The lawnmower runs like a sumbitch now. Seriously! I think our littlesession cleared out some carbon fouling or something, because it was better than new after that.

7- My balls are still smaller than average yet they are almost a foot long.

8- I can turn on the TV in the gameroom by farting while thinking of thenumber 4 (still dont understand this?)

That day changed my life. I now have a newfound respect for things. I <>appreciate the little things more, and now I always triple check to make sure the fence is unplugged before I mow.

The good news, is that if a burglar does try to come over the fence, I can clearly visualize what my security system will do to him, and THAT g ives me a warm and fuzzy feeling all over, which also reminds me to triple check before I mow.

Increased Chatter / Precautions

My sources, often reliable, sometimes not, indicate increased non-specific chatter mostly pertaining to NYC and vicinity, centering around this Wednesday. Wednesday is a Muslim holiday and the possibility of violence exists as does other dangerous situations. We have been personally advised to be out of NYC on that date by multiple sources, but don't intend to leave. As always we review emergency procedures with our family. It's a good time for all of you to do so as well.

This comes amidst daily protests near the UN, various delegations speaking there these past few days.

I hope this turns out to just be another safety exercise for us.
