Football, Death and Taxes - Jun 11

It's been a busy week so far, hence no proper posting since last Tuesday (6/06/06). The world's greatest sports spectacle aka The World Cup is well underway and for those of us who care, this is a small slice of heaven. England defeated Paraguay 1-0 in its first game with the Swedes and Trinidad and Tobago up next. I'm also glad the Iranians got their butts kicked by Mexico 3-1. Not a fan of any Muslim country, thank you very much. It is so easy to watch any game when you are seeing the best of the best. Let's go England!

Canada and Soccer. Soccer and Canada. Not exactly the stuff that dreams are made of I'd say. Nevertheless, the beautiful game does have some historical roots in this country. Here are ten things you probably didn't know about football in Canada:

Death is not a fun topic. However, it is a reality which cannot be ignored. I rejoice in the fact that I have victory in Jesus Christ and that the fear of death is not a part of who I am. Lose the fear of death and you lose the fear of living.

In Gush Katif (Gaza), there's been a terrible incident as some seven civilians have been killed by an Israeli artillery shell. I don't know at this point if it was intentional or not, but the IDF is investigating. From Honest Reporting comes a look at what happened. As a result of this, Hamas is threatening Israel with military action.

A Very Canadian Jihad Update: Here is the very lovely and talented Michelle Malkin (sigh) on those 17 wingnuts that were arrested in Toronto recently. As the highly esteemed MM points out, the whole idea of offensive jihad as a cornerstone of Islam is glossed over in the MSM. I mean they actually use the term 'Broad Strata of Society' for crying out loud. Radical egalitarianism refuses to see the blazingly obvious, which is that Islam and terror are forever married to one another.

Welcome to FOB Martello, a place where not even the angels dare to tread. Man, talk about your 'balls to the wall'. Look at the picture. It looks like Tatooine, Luke Skywalker's home in Episode IV. Minus the fun and excitement of course.

Hurricane season has started with Alberto, located in the Gulf of Mexico. Cuba and hurricane magnet Florida are the targets of Alberto's wrath.

Muslims Gone Wild Dep't:

1) It appears that some of these Islamic conferences are 'radicalizing' Muslim youth. Really? You don't say? What they are really doing is exposing these young people to Islam's true dark nature. How anybody still believes these confabs are no different from some Jewish or Christian mass meeting is beyond me.

2) Auto Theft for Allah is Good Dep't: Friends, it's stories like this (along with a plethora of bad drivers) that make my blood boil. No wonder my insurance rates have bloody well gone up. For Muslims, the concept "Thou shalt not steal" only applies to fellow Muslims, not to us kaffir-unbelievers.

How does a railway line from China to the EU strike you? In light of Bible prophecy (Kings of the East), encouraging Chinese advancement westward does not strike me as a terribly sound idea. No doubt the Russians are going to be watching this closely.

Taxes Suck Dep't

1) Did you know that PM Harper has his own website? Turns out our Fearless Leader (cough) is particularly fond of cats as well. Sign up for the PMO's e-mail list if you dare!

2) From the Bill O'Reilly archives comes an op-ed about Leftist politics and that 'radical egalitarianism' that I mentioned earlier. Lower taxes create jobs and money in YOUR pocket. Higher taxes create bigger government. Which one would you prefer?

Hope that covers it for now. Continue to pray for the safety of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
