        Isn't that the truth and a shame. We Americans in our "civilized" culture
        just don't understand the culture in which one man can rationally kill
        another, or many, for a principal. (At least not since the Crusades and the
        wars with the Moors) Isn't this the third time in history the islamic
        fundamentalist have tried to conquer the western world?

        Though intolerance has been a part of our culture too, it today resides
        chiefly within those less educated. This was the lesson unlearned (or worse
        ignored for any reason, hopefully but fearfully not ego or oil) by the Bush
        decision makers when they undertook the "liberation" of Iraq. In those
        societies two societies, Yugoslavia and Iraq, power and it use (abuse) are
        all that are understood. Failure to conform or coexist is a sentence to
        death or, if you are fortunate, exile. I believe the vacuum created when
        Tito died and Hussein was deposed created the conditions leading first to
        the Kosovo war, in which no American citizen was put on the battlefiel or
        lost his life in a combat operation (over the objections of the Republican
        controlled Congress which said the war couldn't be won without engaging
        troops), and the present situation in Iraq. We're in Iraq up to our mid
        section, and we must stay until the job of stabilizing that nation is
        accomplished, but has the cost up to now been worth it? And what will the
        future costs be? A couple more Americans were killed today.

        Poor decision making at the top by leadership that had the experience to
        know the difference and failed to use it, especially at a time when our
        resources need to be aimed in another very specific direction - Osama Bin
        Laden - is inexcusable. No reward here; back to Texas.

        Please don't misunderstand me. I accept that Hussein was a threat to the
        world's stability. I realize he was fundiing terrorism in Israel. I do not
        however accept that his secular government was in any way associated with
        the fundamentalist Bin Laden organization, nor was he a present threat to
        the U.S. All the things (WMD) Bush said were in Iraq as justification for
        his besting Daddy's war are today rearing their heads in Iran and N. Korea.

        The policy of "preemptive strike" on those perceived to be our enemies has
        only created the need for any nation feeling they might go on the "bad guy"
        list to arm themselves to the best of their abilities, read nuclear. The
        Bush administration has restarted the cold war but now the enemies are the
        third world nuclear or wannabe nuclear powers.

        We certainly have turned the corner back to the seventies.

        And this doesn't even get to the tax code issues, outsourcing, privatization
        of social security, federal assumption of corporate pension funds as back
        door means of propping up companies that should be allowed to fail....

          No offense, Malcolm, but these stories have been shown to be “urban legends”.

           

          The “Mohamed Atta” who blew up the bus in Israel was not the same person as the WTC hijacker-this story has been debunked in a variety of news reports, including the Jeruselem Post, which wrote:

           

          Last week, many news organizations, including The Boston Globe, reported that US authorities believed Atta had attacked a commercial bus in Israel in 1986. But Second Circuit US Court of Appeals records show that was a case of mistaken identity. Another man, a naturalized US citizen who used the alias of Mahmoud Atta, was arrested in that attack.”

           

          The terrorist who Ollie North said caused him to install a home security system was Abu Nidal, not Osama Bin Ladden. In fact, Osama Bin Ladden was receiving U.S. $$$ to battle the Russians in Afganistan during the Regan years.

            Good, Pete. I receive an awful lot of nonsense from a"railroad" friend
            (there, Gino, I at least used the word - he knows about the "FJ&G too) who
            made the mistake (I hope) of replying once to one of the neo-con sites) I
            usually go to google and check the references and respond. In "all" cases
            they are bunk. The irony is that I never get anything so vicious or false
            from the left.

            Folks fail to concentrate on the future and the respective party platforms
            falling for these short stories and sound bites.

              Peter,
               
              Many thanks for setting us straight on "Things to think about". I failed to research the validity of these "things" and just passed them on to the group just as I had received them from a friend. I conclude that stories such as this are probably "urban legends" as you have pointed out.
               
              On the good side, it prompted a wonderful set of things to think about from Paul Larner.

              No offense, Malcolm, but these stories have been shown to be “urban legends”.

                Legend!!! But I love any message that is forwarded and slams the
                Ding-Bat Democrats. Bill Clinton was a farce of a president!!!!
                If and when Commissar Kerry (And his billionaire wife)get into the
                White House get ready to have all your taxes jacked up! You yellow-
                Bellied Democrats can bad mouth the Republicans all you want, but all
                The Democrats do is tax the rich and give to welfare scum-bags!
                Kerry keeps talking about the two Americas and the rich and blah, blah,
                Blah. What category does his Billionaire wife fall into? And he talks
                Bout jobs being sent over seas. How many jobs has Heinz sent over
                Seas lately? Hypocrite!!!!

                There, I've been badgered by every Democrat I know, it was my turn
                To say how I felt about Democrat (Liberal/Socialist) politicians.
                This is no slam on Democratic voters. Most Democrats I know are hard
                Worker who think that people like Bill/Hillary Clinton, Ted (Drunk)
                Kennedy and John Kerry really care about them and good middle class
                Hard-workers! No, they only care about dead-beat welfare scammers...

                  cases
                  they are bunk. The irony is that I never get anything so vicious or
                  false
                  from the left.

                  Folks fail to concentrate on the future and the respective party
                  platforms
                  falling for these short stories and sound bites.

                              Heinz has sent NO jobs overseas, though they do manufacture and sell
                              overseas in the same manner Honda and others manufacture in the US.

                              Do read the perspective section of the Times Union for Sunday August 8.
                              Couple of good opinion pieces there.

                              An opinion is only has good as the knowledge and wisdom that supports it.
                              Strictly and simply speaking, historians dwell in the past; educators use
                              the past to understand the present and shape the future; wise men invest on
                              the outcome, either way.

                              Just started reading Al Franken's book "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell
                              Them" - price went down to $10. at Walmart. So far it is a good read; can't
                              beat the facts.

                              Isn't it interesting that the US blew the cover of the mole that infiltrated
                              the Al Quaida in Pakistan.

                                Heinz has sent NO jobs overseas, though they do manufacture and sell
                                overseas in the same manner Honda and others manufacture in the US.

                                Do read the perspective section of the Times Union for Sunday August 8.

                                Couple of good opinion pieces there.

                                An opinion is only has good as the knowledge and wisdom that supports
                                it.
                                Strictly and simply speaking, historians dwell in the past; educators
                                use
                                the past to understand the present and shape the future; wise men invest
                                on
                                the outcome, either way.

                                Just started reading Al Franken's book "Lies and the Lying Liars Who
                                Tell
                                Them" - price went down to $10. at Walmart. So far it is a good read;
                                can't
                                beat the facts.

                                Isn't it interesting that the US blew the cover of the mole that
                                infiltrated
                                the Al Quaida in Pakistan.

                                Actually, Ann Coulter is the Rights answer to the Lefts Molly Ivins. And her facts are more accurate than Ivin s, Franken s and Moore s. All that

                                  Actually, Ann Coulter is the Rights' answer to the Lefts' Molly Ivins.
                                  And her "facts" are more accurate than Ivin's, Franken's and Moore's.
                                  All that characters like that are doing is increasing the incivility of
                                  the political process and turning people off.

                                  Too bad that the Looney Left can not support their positions with
                                  facts, and instead resort to character assassination, name calling, and
                                  blaming the US for all of the World's problems. (one of my Lefty
                                  friends blamed George Bush for the Red Sox demise) One of the worst
                                  offenders is my own beloved senior Senator, Teddy Kennedy. But Howard
                                  Dean and Albert Gore do a pretty good job of it too.

                                  Seriously for a moment, I believe that there is something in Liberals'
                                  psyches that does not allow them to see Evil, or evil in people. But
                                  that is not the world as it is. The people who want to destroy our
                                  society do not play patty cake; they murder all those who do not agree
                                  with their views of religion and society.

                                  There, now I got my 2 cents in too.

                                  Dick

                                    distortion not a lie? If I ever get off this machine, I'll be reading some
                                    more of that liberal dribble.

                                    On the subject of liberals and their inablility to see evil, you are on to
                                    something there. Three other books on my bedstand this month are William
                                    Blake's poem "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell," Freud's "Civilization and
                                    Its Discontents" and Nietzsche's "Beyond Good and Evil." Those little books
                                    are next. They deal with this subject. What got me onto those tidbits was
                                    a comment I heard about Jim Morrison's Band name "The Doors" coming from
                                    Blakes poetry. Now there was a conflict of goodand evil.

                                    Your last paragraph about those who want to "kill all those who don't agree
                                    with their views of religion and society" really is unsettling for its
                                    truth. Fundamentalists of whatever ilk see things the same way, their way
                                    or no way, and I believe we have many on this side of the pond who cloak
                                    themselves as patriots while preaching a fundamental christianity. They
                                    bomb abortion clinics (Eric Rudolph and his co-conspirators), government
                                    buildings (Oklahoma City), drag black men behind their trucks and tie gays
                                    to fence posts. Among their ranks are the Jew baiters and the kind of
                                    people who locally painted anti black epithets on their neighbor's car and
                                    home. If you're different, you don't belong. We are not beyond this yet.
                                    We shouldn't need anti hate laws in this country.

                                    The popes fought the holy wars,and the French clerics during the
                                    pre-revolutionary war years were the instigators of most of the hardship
                                    between the French and English settlers. They conspired with France and the
                                    Indians to send the pagans (English) to hell. Obviously the Pope had an
                                    interest in seeing France succeed over Protestant England. They disagreed
                                    fundamentally. And anglos still fight over religion in Ireland (not so long
                                    ago in Quebec), rather than simply economics.

                                    Intolerance is deep in our cultural roots, it is an element of who we are as
                                    Americans.

                                    George Carlin rhetorically asked in one of his bits, how much kinder and
                                    gentler would the world have been if there never were religion? (Not a quote
                                    but a synopsis). I don't know. My faith, at least the way I learned it,
                                    taught me to respect and also endeavored to have me understand other points
                                    of view. Admittedly this all came in college, and a Catholic one at that.

                                    Just for the record as I'm re-reading this. I oppose abortion at any time;
                                    but I won't get between you and your conscience. Re: Carlin, I do not
                                    subscribe to his thinking in all cases, but his views do offer food for
                                    thought. Most often his thoughts are expressed too crudely for my taste,
                                    perhaps it's to get my attention.

                                    The merits of whether the FJ&G could or would be rebuilt as a going concern
                                    may be moot. In my opinion the FJ&G exemplifies the purest application of
                                    capitalism. In 1932 the Republican Hoover Administration said no to a
                                    financial bail out. So the company reorganized and lasted until the money
                                    and interest died in 1973. In resurrection the Democratic state government
                                    played a major part in funding its ability to operate; it lasted only ten
                                    years. Should the government have carried it further than they did and put
                                    up more money for a dead horse or were the Republicans right in 1932 by
                                    staying out of it? There that's something said about the FJ&G.

                                      Between Bush and Kerry, I think none of the above is the best choice
                                      for president. The only thing Bush has done is run the economy into
                                      the ground. I'm not a big Kerry fan, but I sure don't want to see
                                      Bush for 4 more years. Say what you want about Clinton, at least we
                                      had a strong economy while he was president. Like the bumper sticker
                                      I saw a few weeks ago: Like father, like son, 4 years and out.

                                        Hello Gino and friends-

                                        I've been off list for a while , so I hope things are well with you
                                        all and the forage into Fulton County is fruitful. Seems we got a
                                        little politics going. I won't take up space on this list other than
                                        this:

                                        3 years ago the company I work for was the #1 food appitizer company
                                        in the world; with many strongpoints in it's POPPER/ANCHOR brands.
                                        1.5 yrs. ago it was sold to our nearest competitor in a somewhat
                                        hostle ( cheaper to buyem that beat em situation ) takeover that
                                        made our owners and Sr. mgmnt multi,multi millionares. Since then
                                        our core of 1500 employees has been terminated down to 700, with
                                        robotics and other cost savings; which continue to this day. More
                                        layoffs expected. I'm 10 yrs into this company, with a high end
                                        employee base of 13 yrs, of which there are few. I expect to be let
                                        go by the new year, in the name of profits and efficiencies.

                                        My parent companies are Heinz and McCain Foods. Just sick what I've
                                        seen recently.

                                        So for you Gino, a idea for a bumper sticker that was sent to me a
                                        week or so ago:

                                        Kerry & Edwards
                                        So much bullshit between the two you NEED two Johns


                                        With that I say my next employer could be Quad Graphics....

                                        Who currently, along with CN/IC have their private varnish trains at
                                        the PGA Tour this week. $$$$$$$$$$$$

                                          Hi All,

                                          Hate to get involved with this but after reading what appears to be just
                                          another "Blame Canada" letter I really think I need to open my trap.

                                          I live in a city of 20,000 right across the St. Lawrence River form New
                                          York State. Since the Free Trade deal was signed back in the '80s we
                                          watched most of our employers being bought up by their American
                                          competitors, only to be closed weeks later. Philips Cables was closed
                                          by a company in Chicago, 550 jobs lost. Microtel was bought by GE and
                                          the contracts they held were diverted to GE Chicago, leaving our plant
                                          to complete the contract they were working on and then the plant was
                                          closed, all 800 workers were terminated. Black and Decker Canada
                                          employed 1200 people, 25 in the R&D department are left, the rest of the
                                          work went to Baltimore, Mexico, and Brazil.

                                          This is common across Canada, Marathon Ontario was a pulp and paper
                                          town, if you weren't employed by the mill, you worked in some sort of
                                          service or store that was dependent on the mill's employees. An
                                          American company in Wisconsin bought the mill, along with it's timber
                                          rights, closed the mill but kept the loggers so they can strip our
                                          forests and float them over Lake Superior to the mill in Wisconsin.
                                          McCain Foods might have bought your food plant but at least they didn't
                                          buy it to close it.

                                          If CN bought IC so what, there was no railroad in United Stated
                                          interested in partnering with them. Should we all bitch that Rail
                                          America keeps buying every branchline that comes up for abandonment in
                                          Canada?

                                          Just my thoughts, we will return to regular programming now!

                                          Paul :-)
