Rocky Coast

Rocky Coast 1805×1200. Odd size for a wallpaper, but it was either that or crop off part of it to keep the correct proportions. I figured that anyone interested in making a wallpaper of it could decide what they felt most comfortable cropping.

John McCain,

“So I can understand, I can understand why people are upset about this,” said Mr. McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee for president. “I can understand why Americans, when viewing these kinds of comments, are angry and upset.”

Was the Senator who, with the media’s assitance is running a “civil” campaign, talking about this,

“It was the disobedience and rebellion of the Jews, God’s chosen people, to their covenantal responsibility to serve only the one true God, Jehovah, that gave rise to the opposition and persecution that they experienced beginning in Canaan and continuing to this very day….

How utterly repulsive, insulting, and heartbreaking to God for His chosen people to credit idols with bringing blessings He had showered upon the chosen people. Their own rebellion had birthed the seed of anti-Semitism that would arise and bring destruction to them for centuries to come…. it rises from the judgment of God uppon his rebellious chosen people.” [“Jerusalem Countdown: A Prelude To War”, paperback edition, pages 92 and 93]

All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they are — were recipients of the judgment of God for that. The newspaper carried the story in our local area that was not carried nationally that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other Gay Pride parades. So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing

In fact, I will tell you this: I do not believe our country can truly fulfill its divine purpose until we understand our historical conflict with Islam. I know that this statement sounds extreme, but I do not shrink from its implications. The fact is that America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed, and I believe September 11, 2001, was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore.

The first two blocks are from McCain supporter Rev. Hagee and the last is from McCain supporter Rev. Ron Parsley. No McCain was not condemning them he was condemning Rev. Wright again. Who’s McCain running against, anyone that he thinks he can beat or Barack Obama.

Unka Karl carries concern trolling to new levels of creepiness, Karl Rove: Concern Troll. In my personal life I try to avoid litmus tests, but in the realm of public politics anyone who thinks that Unka Karl has the intellectual or psychological capacity to care about anything, but power and money might want to consider getting some medical attention.

U.S., Allies See Progress in Selling Al-Qaeda As an Enemy to the Muslim World. Walter Pincus is one of a hand full of repoters worth more then a hand full of salt. That he’s reporting news that is old and rather stale to those of us who have been paying attention is great. There are always a few folks that didn’t get the facts first time around. If most Muslims in the world had really bought into AQ’s message we really would be in a Terror War and the paranoids like McCain and his buddy Parsley wouldn’t seem so screwy. There are about a billion Muslims out there and the best estimates put AQ’s total numbers at tens of thousands and not even the CIA can agree on an exact number. Do the math, a fraction of a percent of a billion Muslims have joined in what most Muslims view as Pincus points, out an affront to true Islamic teachings.
