Why All the Threats of Violence Over Koran Burning?

We are told over and again that Islam is a "religion of peace" yet the US State Department issued worldwide travel alert to Americans traveling "and cautions that 'the potential for further protests and demonstrations, which may turn violent, remains high.'"

I personally think the idea was a moronic and ungodly thing to even talk about doing. Regardless of the fact that it may have resulted in what Pastor Jones wanted and that was to prevent the mosque from being build on ground zero.

If he wanted to take a stand against a religious ideology he was adamantly opposed to, he should have used the book that he wanted to burn to educate people why he had issues with it.

Better yet, he should use the Holy Bible to show why he believed that following the teachings of Christ was the correct path to take.

However, I keep reading that Islam is a "religion of peace", yet so many are dieing for refusing to follow its ideologies and for decimating what it deems to be its holy words.

In the United States we have a fundamental right to worship any god we want or none at all. While I choose to serve the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, others can choose to serve whomever they want. After all, God will ultimately judge us all in the end.

If the Muslims want to build a mosque in NYC near ground zero, it is their right to do so, though most Americans and many Muslims agree that it is in bad taste.

Likewise, if some misguided pastor in Florida wants to burn Korans, than that is his first Amendment right to do so. But the very act of him doing such a thing is diametrically opposite of the message of Love that Gods word teaches.

Great Advice to Men of God

1 Timothy 6

1 Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. 2 And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; 14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. (The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.)


If only men who proclaim to be ministers of the the Gospel would follow this advice, our world would be a much better place. Though I could imagine that men of God who served in this manner would be hated by the majority of the world because they would not want to repent of their sins and move away from their depravity.

What Your PC Knows About You

by Mark Nestmann
Sovereign Society

If someone could secretly stand behind you and monitor everything you’ve done on your PC, what would they discover about you that you would prefer to keep private? Thanks to new technologies that secretly track everywhere you go on the Internet, that’s an appropriate comparison of the threat you face unless you take advance precautions.

Perhaps you’ve never visited a Web site you wouldn’t want your spouse, your children, your neighbors, or the FBI to know about. Perhaps you really do have “nothing to hide.” But if you do, you’ll want to understand the threat to your privacy – and what you can do to protect yourself.

The centerpiece of this threat is a tracking technology that records what Web sites you visit, what links you click on, and what types of search engine questions you ask. If you’ve entered personal information into applications that use these technologies, that data is stored as well. All of it is written to hidden directories on your hard disk. And there it stays – permanently – unless you know how to delete it.

Usually what’s recorded is innocuous. You might not mind that your hard disk has a record of the movies you’ve rented, the fact that you’re interested in photography, or that you want to take pilot lessons. And you might not object to the fact that the companies that create these hidden directories sell the information. For instance, a company selling photographic supplies would surely be interested in presenting an advertisement for its services to someone with a proven interest in photography.

However, perhaps your interests are a bit more controversial. Or even if they’re not, perhaps someone with access to your PC has less conventional preferences than you. In that event, the data in the hidden directories could possibly come back to haunt you, should your PC ever be compromised – or searched by law enforcement.

Say, for instance, that you – or someone with access to your PC – watch a controversial video on the Internet. Guess what? The Web site serving up the video to your browser most likely plants a tracking beacon on your hard drive, where it stays – potentially, forever. Erasing “cookies” in your browser will NOT delete these beacons!

The largest offender in this regard is probably a program called Adobe Flash Player (AFP). Many Web sites use AFP to deliver audio and visual content. But AFP also creates a hidden directory on your hard disk to track the Web sites you visit, especially those with interactive or multimedia features. Companies that plant the beacons use them to personalize your browsing experience, and also sell the data they contain to direct marketing companies.

Since you can’t delete these files from your browser, the most practical way to deal with them is to install a browser add-on program to manage and delete them. One such program is “Better Privacy,” an add-on for Firefox. You can download it here. I’ve configured Better Privacy to delete all AFP beacons when I shut down my browser.

I also suggest that you configure AFP to minimize tracking altogether. You can adjust its settings using a virtual control panel.

I’ve adjusted the settings on my PC to always deny access to my PC’s camera or microphone, never storing any content, and deleting all records of Web sites I’ve visited that use AFP. Those settings, together with the Better Privacy add-on, seem to have rid my PC of “beacons” – at least those from AFP. These settings limit functionality on some Web sites, but so long as you configure AFP to allow programs to ask you for permission to store content, you can control which ones have access to your PC. When you exit your browser, Better Privacy deletes them.

Incidentally, none of AFP’s tracking software violates any U.S. law; at least none of which I’m aware. And don’t look to the government for help – law enforcement agencies surely find beacons on your PC a highly informative tool to track your Web browsing behavior.

With big business and big government collaborating to invade your online privacy, you have only one resource to depend upon – yourself. So if you don’t want permanent records of your online life residing on your hard drive, don’t call your Congressman for help. You alone must take responsibility for protecting your online privacy.

Mamas Dont Let Your Babies Graduate from College

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, Reading is fundamental. Everyone needs a college education to succeed. Of course if the ecconomy is in the toilet, then education will not help your child get a job once they graduate from college.

At least it is not expected to happen for another four years, so those who are just starting their four year degree may be able to get a job when they get out. However those who expect to graduate in the next 3 years will not expect to get a job.

So unless you are independently wealthy and can afford to have your 22 year old child live with you the next four years, just don't let them graduate from college. They should work on their Masters or PHD in their field. Then when the job markets open up, they will be the most qualified applicants for the entry level jobs.

In the past, I had the privilege of hearing people like Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's talk about his less than eighth grade education and how he worked hard since the age of 14 to learn the restaurant business and well you know the rest of the story.

Self education and dedication can work for the right people. In the first Great Depression, some smart restaurateurs would give their patrons free peanuts, all they could eat. The idea was to let them get their fill on salted peanuts which they bought at a great price and then sold them soda at 10 cents instead of 5 cents. The result, they stayed in business.

Americans are resilient and our ingenuity has help to create most of the modern technology used today. Education at liberal universities teaching to help grow corporate agendas may not be the best path for any child.

Perhaps, hard work, self education and a determination to succeed is the past course to take.

Your children would be safer in Portugal

Quote of the Day: "Even if you don't like drugs, you really, really don't like murder, rape, robbery, and so forth." - Ted Balaker

An important video by Reason.tv and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) succinctly addresses how the War on Drugs cripples police work and endangers children. DownsizeDC.org would like to express our gratitude to Reason's Ted Balaker and LEAP's Neill Franklin for laying out the facts.

We urge you to . . .

* Watch the video
[video:youtube&#58;&#68;zOHQdKRANA]

* And then tell Congress to watch it too, using our End the Mexican Civil War campaign

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The Mexican government reports that its War on Drugs has killed 28,000 people over the past four years. This ongoing tragedy is undermining Mexico's stability, which is bad news for the United States.

But that's not the only way drug prohibition is hurting us. I urge you to watch this interview with Neill Franklin, the Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (under 9 minutes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzOHQdKRANA

The video reveals that the Mexican drug cartels have expanded into 230 U.S. cities. Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority of police 911 calls are related to this illegal drug trade. And yet, as our police go from one drug-related 911 call to the next, most violent crimes go unsolved, including . . .

* 60% of rapes
* 73% of robberies
* 88% of auto thefts
* And 37% of murders

Whereas, in 1963, before the War on Drugs, only 9% of murders went unsolved!

Repealing drug prohibition would put an end to narcotics units and place more cops on the street to "do the work that is supposed to be done."

But unsolved crime is not the only danger caused by the Drug War. Our children are particularly at risk . . .

* Criminals don't ask for ID's to verify the age of their customers
* This means that powerful drugs are more available to kids than cigarettes and alcohol
* Criminals don't care about quality control, so the black market substances that lure our kids are more dangerous than they would be if prohibition didn't exist
* And urban, African-American children are at special risk. They are heavily recruited to the drug trade because juvenile offenders get lesser sentences

Whereas in Portugal, which legalized personal drug possession ten years ago . . .

* There was a double-digit drop in drug use by school-age children
* As well as a double-digit drop in AIDS cases
* The stigma has been removed for people seeking treatment
* And there is MORE MONEY for treatment

Even so, President Obama still wants to increase funding for the War on Drugs!

But the facts are clear. Drug prohibition doesn't work. Repeal the federal drug laws. Our communities will be safer and our children will be better off.

END LETTER

You can send your letter through DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.
