Taking us for stupid yet again
Obama declared that release of torture photos will endanger security of American troops. Let us see if this makes any sense. Imagine a terrorist who hates Americans. He saw Abu Ghraib pictures, he knows that there exists new photos of degrading treatment of prisoners. Now, he is told that those pictures are not as bad as Abu Ghraib is, but nevertheless, will never be released because such release will endanger American lives. Now, what do you think is in the head of this individual? He already saw Abu Ghraib and if the new pictures are not that bad, then he certainly sees no reason not to have them released. The fact that they are not released convinces him that they are worse. So, he would want to kill Americans even more. So, knowledge of existence of the pictures and refusal to release them would certainly create greater desire to kill Americans than just plainly releasing them.

Here are some statistics. The total of Guantanamo population was about 900. About 600 of them were just let go. Out of this amount, around 27 started joining war against U.S. and some people use it as a proof that these people should not have been liberated. Try to think logically, if you are an innocent person, grabbed by foreign soldiers, brought to jail, tortured for several years and then let go, would you start war against country that did it to you? My logic tells me that it is surprisingly tiny proportion of people which started hostility against U.S. I would think that certain number of people would start hostility after being tortured for years even if they did not have any hostile intent prior to being imprisoned.
Now, imagine some sheriff in U.S. who would grab 900 people from the street, kept them in jail for several years and then let go. Wouldn't you charge with this sheriff with malicious abuse of power. After all, these people were let go for one simple reason, there was nothing collected against them.
It is astounding to read various statements about these prisoners that they are the "worst of the worst". Shouldn't people saying these words have at least some evidence to support the claim. Obviously they don't.

The best use for Guantanamo
Here is my suggestion how to use Guantanamo properly. Take all those bankers who put not just U.S., but the whole world into misery. Ship them to Guantanamo, lock them there, and throw away the key. My reason is that they have harmed the whole world, much more than all the terrorists taken together.

Execute pay ezar - really?
Obama made significant steps to control executive pay. He introduces new position (executive pay ezar). Try to imagine. A guy comes to work. What the hell would he be doing 8 hours a day every day, calling various banks asking them how many millions they paid in bonuses today? Are we really that dumb to accept this masquerade?

Let us use common sense
It was reported in the news that many top executives from American social security were flown to fashionable resort for a luxury meeting with total spending of about $1 million. The justification of this expense was as follows: they have very difficult time, they are stressed, their lives have been threatened and they needed to unwind. Ok, let us look deeper into it. Why exactly are their lives threatened? They are dealing with the most vulnerable and the most deprived members of society. When these people are driven into despair of such magnitude that they start threatening the executive lives, this is the time for someone to investigate the work of this executive. I bet 100 to 1 that this scoundrel indeed mistreated the little guy by depriving him/her from the money Government owes them, thus making the little guy to threaten his life out of desperation. What common sense dictate in this case is not fly these executives to a luxury resort, but to have him fired with no severance pay of any kind and in addition, to subtract from his salary all the money he owes to this little guy whom he brought to the state of desperation.
Public option fear
There is a lot of hoopla about public option that will wipe out private medical insurance. Let us see whether it makes sense.
One thing might happen that people decide that public option is better than private. Everybody will join public option and private insurance will disappear. If this is so, then good riddance to private insurance if public option is better.
On the other hand, anyone who lives on this planet knows perfectly well that public option would not be that attractive or that good. Therefore, private company will still exist, except that they would certainly have to reduce their extravagant profit.
I can give you an example of Canada where private medical care is effectively forbidden and public option is the only option and it is certainly not very good. So, what happens in Canada? Numerous private medical establishments appeared because where there is a demand, there is a supply. If private medical care appears in Canada, so don't worry, it will not disappear in U.S. What will disappear though is their extravagant profits.
Scumbags and proud of it
Crowds of people gathered yesterday in Washington to protest what they call Obama Nazism and huge Government spending. And the media treated them as if they are heroes. Let us see who they really are.
First, let us see what brings up their anger.
Reason #1: they are angry that illegal aliens would get medical care.
Reason #2: they believe that their medical care would disappear.
Reason #3: Government spends too much money for health care.
If I were a reporter there, I would have asked them the following questions.
1) Do you know how much money were spent in the past 8 years on killing people in Iraq and Afghanistan?
2) How come all those 8 years, you didn't bother to come here and protest those exorbitant spending?
3) Do you realise that skyrocketing costs of health care means only one thing, that salaries of doctors, insurance company executives and profit of hospitals and pharmaceutical companies are increasing at much higher rate than the rate of inflation?
4) If you do understand the reason for skyrocketing health care expenses, why don't you protest what needs to be protested, namely, greed of those mentioned in question 3?
5) You wouldn't let a dog to die without medical help; if you have a rapist or robber who was caught red-handed, shot police, got shot back, he has to be delivered to a hospital and medical care has to be provided to him; so, why are you so adamant that illegal aliens shouldn't get at least as much as a dog, a rapist or a robber?
What sounds to me so astounding is that President of U.S. has had to say that illegal aliens would not be covered and Congressman shouted with him with hatred "You lie". Why shouldn't President of the richest country in the world said the following: "We won't allow a dog to die , whether a person is here legally or illegally, he is entitled to health care. This is what France does and we are at least as good as French".
There is one more thing about illegal aliens. They are being exploited like slaves. They are underpaid, they are extremely profitable for American economy, so even from this point of view, it makes sense to provide them with health care.

How to pay for health care
Here is a subject nobody talks about for some reason. Everybody is saying that health care is too expensive, everybody is talking about the need to raise taxes to pay for it and nobody is asking a very simple question: why the hell is Health Care so expensive? And here is the answer. Because bloody doctors are being paid too much money which they do not deserve no matter how you look at it.
Now, ask yourself, why on Earth should medical doctor be paid at least 10 times what an Engineer is paid. Have in mind that medical doctor does not have any advance scientific degree. A person with doctorate in Engineering gets less than 1/5th of what medical doctors get and it takes much more time and effort to get doctorate in Engineering than it is to become a medical doctor.
In majority of countries in Europe, medical doctors are paid about at par with Engineers. For example, in France, salary of medical doctor is between 50 and 150 thousand dollars per year. Are French doctors less qualified than American doctors? Last time I checked, they were the first in the world to perform face transplant.

Rick Sanchez + tasers
Rick Sanchez made a spectacle pretending to be subject of being tasered, after which, he admitted that his brother was a policeman and the whole thing was made to promote use of tasers. I just wonder how much was he paid for this infomercial.
But the main point here is, was he really tasered? This is what I saw. Judging for his physical reaction, he was subject to electric shock for less than half a second, the shot was in the back and he was supported by two people so that he would not, God forbid, fall. Now, here is my suggestion to him. If he wants to demonstrate that he was subject to tasering, let him go through the real thing, namely, let him be struck from the front, with nobody supporting him and let the discharge of electricity be at least 10 seconds. Or, to be even more real, let him have the Dziekanski experience. He was tasered 5 times, each time between 10 and 15 seconds. If he is still alive after that, let him come to the microphone and praise tasers.

Elections in Afghanistan
A number of our soldiers gave their lives to enable Afghanis to participate in elections. Now, let us see what these lives are wasted for. You have one crooked and corrupt Government, who according to every observer rigged the election to get re-elected. Was this a good reason to have our soldiers killed? Does it have anything to do with democracy?
Use common sense. Karzai has been in power for over 7 years. Afghanistan under his leadership is considered the second most corrupt in the world, right after Somalia. Now, there are two options here. Afghanis are completely dumb if they vote for such a president yet again, or they did not vote and their vote was rigged. Would you vote for a president who made your country the second most corrupt country in the world?

To pay for abortions
Majority of civilized countries in the world pay for abortions. Somehow, it is taken for granted in the U.S. that taxpayer money should not be used to pay for abortions. Here is argument why this is wrong.
1) Unwanted child would not have any satisfactory quality of life and it has been proven in "Freakonomics" that legalization of abortion in U.S. resulted in significant decline in crime. It is obvious that abused children become angry adults who are more likely to commit violent crime.
2) The main problem of this planet is that there are too many of us already here. So, every mean of reduction of our number should be welcome and supported by Government.

Truth about Obama education speech
Have you noticed strange hoopla over Obama education speech? Media show us parents stating that they don't want their children indoctrinated by Obama. Obama's speech was published, there is no indoctrination there and still parents do not want their children to hear it. What is interesting, the media didn't even try to get to the bottom of it. Why do those parents still refuse that their children hear his speech?
Parents should have noticed that their children don't give a damn what the parents are saying and don't give a damn about what teachers are saying. Do you think they would give a damn about what the President is saying. Here is the real reason why those parents are so adamant: they are bloody racists, they cannot stomach the idea that a black president will be talking to white kids. It is that bloody simple. And the media seems to be too scared to state this simple proof.
Have you noticed that some black schools made it mandatory for children to hear the speech? America is as racist as it has ever been.

Jerry Lewis Telethon
Latest Jerry Lewis telethon collected over $65 million. The telethon exists for 43 years by now. They collected well over a billion dollars. Now, let us see what these billion dollars bought us. One thing is obvious. Over 20% of this money went to administration and fundraising. This means that somebody got a good chunk of over $200 million.
Now, let us see whether sick people are better off now then they were 43 years ago. As far as prevention is concerned, more people are sick now than 40 years ago. As far as cure is concerned, nobody has been cured. Ask yourself a very simple question, what would be the most terrible thing which might happen to all those running wheelchair manufacturing plants, communication devices, camps for children, etc. The answer is obvious, cure for MD would be the most disastrous for them. The same goes for executives of the association.
What has been really done is production of wheelchairs ($2,000 per wheelchair), communication device, etc. Ask yourself a very simple question, why would a wheelchair or communication device cost that much. It is because they are making huge profit on human misery.
Look now at their medical advances. I quote from their website: Sodium Phenylbutyrate Trial begains in ALS. Ok, and what is the result of the trial? The same goes for all other trials. There is nothing on the website about results. There is a peculiar thing about medication which claims to slow down progression of the disease. I can take any substance, declare that it slows down progression of the disease and sell it for huge money. There is no way to establish whether that certain medication did or did not slow down progression of the disease. The only real way to establish it to have a human being live his life twice. One with medication and the other without medication. And this is not possible. Since everyone dies in the end, pharamacetical companies makes a lot of money.

To call a spade a spade
We are hearing a lot about cost of health care shooting through the roof. How about being more specific, namely, some people are getting paid too much and let us name those people. Then, it will be clear how to reduce the cost of health care and then, it will be clear why some people are obviously hired to shut down the Health reform.

My nomination for nobel peace prize
Obama so far didn't do a single solitary thing to achieve peace anywhere on the planet. All what he did - trying to undo some of the harm that Bush did - and this is certainly not enough.
My nomination for nobel peace prize is for the guy who threw both shoes at Bush. He did not achieve peace, but he certainly did more than Obama.

I told you so
I stated in my previous submission in Afghanistan that we have no business being there, that our soldiers are giving their life for no good reason and some people responded that I am not there, never been there and don't know what I am talking about. Now read the letter of former Marine and state department official Hoh, who is there and is saying exactly the same thing as I did.
One more interesting development. Brother of Afghanistan president is number 1 drug dealer and also is being paid by CIA. Mind boggling.
Do you sincerely believe that he could operate, without sharing his profit with his president brother?

General Casey declared that shooting in Fort Hood was kick in the guts. I agree, except that this kick in the guts is well deserved. Number of civilian killed in these two countries is counted in hundreds of thousands. Several million of Iraqis had to leave their own country fearing for their lives. Will anybody ever be held responsible for these war crimes and crimes against humanity?

People expressed concern that 9/11 masterminds will get too many rights at their trial. Here is one little thing. If you are absolutely sure that they are guilty, then there is no need for any trial. On the other hand, if you want to make sure that really guilty people are convicted and executed, then elementary decency requires that they are presumed to be not guilty and given all the rights which any other accused had. And right #1 is to be tried by an impartial jury. There is no way they can have a fair trial in a courthouse near those buildings which were blown up. The trial should be moved to another state.
To or not to pig – follow up
There was a recent report stating numerous occasion where parole officer could have discovered and liberated girl Dugard from sex offender Garrido, but didn't. The excuse: parole is overworked because he has 40 sex offenders in his file, which gives him 7 minutes per day per offender. First, if work days of parole officers is 8 hours, then 8 hours/40 gives 12 minutes, not 7. But I suggest to use different arithmetic.
Here is my arithmetics to use. Every month contains about 22 working days. So, every two months, parole officer can devote the WHOLE day, namely, at least 8 hours to one particular offender and if parole officer spends those 8 hours really verifying certain offender, he would have found this girl within 2 months from her kidnapping, not 18 years later and by accident.

Killings at the canal in Iraq and killings at Forthood
It seems very strange to me that nobody draws a parallel between those two events, while in fact, the reasons for both events are essentially the same.
According to CNN, three sergeants in Iraq captured 4 Iraqis and decided that since they did not have any proof against them, they would be released later on. For some reason, they believed that Iraqis were bad people and after being released, they might kill one of their friends, brothers in arms. In order to save those brothers in arms, according to them, the 4 Iraqis have to be killed and this is what they did.
Now, look at Hassan's reasoning. Soldiers at Fort Hood were about to be deployed to Iraq and there, he was sure, they will start killing his brothers Muslims and it was his duty to save his brothers. In order to save those brothers, he needed to kill their murderers, namely soldiers at Fort Hood. And this is what he did.
You see the similarity?
There is though slight difference between these two events in details.
1) American soldiers did the murders cowardly, hoping to get away with murders. I am sure they were not the only ones who did similar murders and majority did get away with those murders. Hassan did it in the open and will pay with his life with what he did.

Was there an explosion?
I have doctorate in Mechanical Engineering.
I read your petition mentioning explosion. You would be correct if those buildings had been built with columns. My understanding is that those buildings were built in criminal manner, namely, without columns. This is why they imploded so fast.

Dummies in Homeland security
Lately, some guy from Nigeria tried to blow up American plane. Homeland security responded with new rules which only a complete dummy can invent. Now, all the passengers will be ordered to sit in their places one hour prior to landing. Now imagine a guy with diarrhea who cannot sit for an hour. What are they going to do with him?
As far as terrorists are concerned, do you think this rule will stop them in any shape or form? They have two obvious solutions.
1) Go to the toilet,
one hour and one minute, prior to landing;
2) There are not obliged to blow up airplane immediately prior to landing. They can quite successfully do it over an ocean which would guarantee that everyone will be killed even if plane is not blown to pieces, but still goes in the ocean.
The dummies in Homeland security do not seem to understand that the only way to keep American planes safe is to change American policy, so that people around the world would not hate Americans so much that they would be ready to kill themselves in order to kill Americans. To the best of my knowledge, no Swiss airplanes was ever blown up. Ask yourself why.
