The Westboro Baptist Church Con

stevefakeballmer

I was just perusing the web when I came across all of these Westboro Baptist Church Videos and whatnot. I was amazed at how hateful and vindictive these people were all in the name of God. I thought to myself,
“How could anyone who knows the Lord Jesus be as hateful as these people, as crass, as condescending,  as uncaring, as cruel?”

My answer: THEY CAN’T!
westboroprotestersTherefore I conclude that there is something else going on here, something so evil as to appear ridiculous in the eyes of almost anyone who dares propose it, but something which when pondered long enough becomes increasingly obvious.

You see I am an occasional street preacher and minister of the Gospel myself and I oppose abortion, homosexuality, sin, alcohol …. all manner of unholiness. But I love people! I believe in their absolute right to be wrong. After all it was given to them…

Tribute To Malaysia’s Florence Nightingale: Sybil Kathigasu

The Human Lens

From Malaysia, the land of lush valleys and sparkling rivers hailed Sybil Kathigasu who was born on 3 September 1899 and is the local World War II heroine.

Sybil Kathigasu was of Malayan-Eurasian origins and played a pivotal role in the liberation of Malaysia for her role as a resistance fighter against the Japanese Occupation.

A trained nurse along with her husband Abdon Clement Kathigasu, who was a doctor, she ran a clinic in Ipoh from 1926 to December 1942, when the Japanese troops first arrived in Malaya. Soon the couple along with their three children fled to Papan in Perak where they continued to carry the highly dangerous but crucial mission of supporting the resistance forces and the anti Japanese occupation.

She provided the resistance with vital information from the BBC, which they would listen to on their short wave radio. Additionally, she supplied them with medicine and assisted the…

Society’s Unhealthy Addiction For House Maids and Servants

The Human Lens

The concept of house-maid, servant, au pair and whatever else we may wish to call them exists and thrives with a superficial benevolent outlook for helping the less fortunate ones, existing in large numbers in our societies.

There are many households where maids are crucial instruments for managing the needs of sick, aged parents and special children.  However, these days its become a trend to hire a maid like a competition. Never mind the fact that households with domestic workers and house servants are actually perpetuating modern-day slavery.

Because call it what you like, servanting is slavery.

This form of abuse is an accepted norm is global societies and  justified on notions of sympathy, favoring the poor and handing out generosity. The reality is that we are too reliant on maids because we can be this dependent and also get away it.

After all thousands of poverty struck families are willing…

15 Year Dept. of Homeland Security Veteran Says Obama Forced the Agency to Erase Records of muslim Terrorists…

Trigger Reset

Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested.

The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time.

Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.”

Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation caused. His words infuriated many of us because we knew his administration had…

The Cooking Of Agrokor’s Books

Croatia, the War, and the Future

Agrokor Headquarters Zagreb Croatia

Croatia’s government claims that the results of the financial audit (first audit report released Thursday 5 October 2017) of key companies within Croatia’s ailing concern Agrokor justify the adoption of special law on extraordinary administration, which saw the state take control of the privately-held concern in April. My blogpost at that time emphasised an analysis that “when the government of a former communist country (Croatia) brings about and takes over with forced administration a calamitously failed private company (it subsidised and helped along the way as did the communist Yugoslavia regime via nationalisation of private assets and borrowed money injections) the gut tells you, regardless of the threat of thousands of job losses if that company sinks, you’re more than likely dealing with attempts of cover-ups of major incompetence, possible embezzlement come thefts and politically driven paths to sell and hand over the company…

Power Plant Paradox of Front to Back and Back to Front

Power Plant Men

Originally posted February 8, 2014:

After the downsizing in 1987 some new engineers were assigned to the coal-fired Power Plant in North Central Oklahoma.  I wasn’t used to an engineer actually pausing to listen to what I was saying.  I remember the first time I said something sort of out of the ordinary and Doug Link stopped and asked me why I thought that.  The usual response was to roll their eyes as if I was some dumb electrician that almost knew how to lace my boots correctly… Ok… Lacing your boots isn’t as easy as it looks…. especially when you put them on in the dark in the morning before you leave the house.

I chose this picture because they look like my boots, only I never wore the toes out so that you could see the steel toes. I chose this picture because they look like my boots, only I never wore the toes out so that you could see the steel toes.

Solar Electricity Installations look like a gravy train.

Additional survival tricks

Solar Electricity Installations look like a gravy train.

With electricity price running out of control, anticipated to hit40c/kWh in the near future, I have to consider investing in a home system of Solar Panels to reduces my expenditure. The good news is there are some Solar Panels on sale at $150 per square meter and my friend can install them for me at a cost of $150 per square meter. So I drew up the following financial analysis for the prospective installation of 1m2 of panel. The results are quite surprising: Solar electricity is not matured enough to be economically competitive. The Green actions by Australian Governments are mostly a gravy train with well connected, greedy people already having First Class seats on it.

1.Assumptions leading to prospective installation

Lizzie Borden meets Power Plant Man

Power Plant Men

Originally posted March 8, 2014. Added comments from the original post:

I have many stories that I am going to write about the extraordinary Power Plant Men in North Central Oklahoma from 1988 to 1994 this year, but it happened that I was watching a recorded episode of Forensic Files (otherwise known as Mystery Detectives) on TV tonight and it made me remember…. The story I was watching was about a women that was kidnapped in Pennsylvania June 1988 and murdered in order to draw the husband to a location where the kidnapper could collect the ransom and murder the husband. The man guilty of the crime was found to be a person that shared a pew in the Presbyterian Church with the couple but held a grudge against the husband for turning him down for a loan at the bank a few months earlier.

“British” Police Officer, Orhan Yigit Offers Help to Female Violence Victim…For a Price…

Trigger Reset

A police community support officer raped and sexually assaulted women he met while investigating crimes, a court heard today.

Orhan Yigit, 44, paraded naked in front of a victim of domestic violence, asked her for sexual favours in return for help to escape her marriage and forced her into a sex act on the marital bed, a jury was told.

Another married mother who innocently answered the door to him dressed in a nightie was ‘cuddled’, kissed on the shoulder and inappropriately touched by the PCSO.

A third woman he met during house-to-house inquiries into the theft of roof tiles ended up having a sexual relationship with him after he discovered she had a troubled personal background by doing illegal checks on the police computer, Leeds Crown Court heard.

Ian Brook, prosecuting, said: ‘He seems to have gone about his affairs almost like a modern-day lothario.’

Yigit denies rape, two…
