The Cassandra Curse - Aug. 31

So just what exactly is the Cassandra Curse anyways you may ask? It is someone who has the uncanny ability to judge things correctly but sadly no-one listens to them. I mean, its not like I didn't know that telling the truth can get you in a spot of trouble. Say that war is coming gets you branded as a 'warmonger'. Say that radical Islam and anti-semitism is a genuine threat to human freedom and you get called a 'scaremonger'. Man, you just cannot win! Still, I'd rather be vilified today and vindicated tomorrow then vice versa.

I don't really have a theme here so do bear with me.

If you're an American, which country is causing you the most grief? Is it Iran or Mexico? The Iranians have once more snubbed any international effort to comply with its nuclear agenda while untramelled immigration into the U.S. gives all concerned a headache. The winner is an easy choice: Mexico. Mexico is next door while Iran is on another continent.

Hurricane Watch: While Ernesto turned out to be a bit of a dud, John is turning into a stud. Ernesto is not quite done yet, soaking the Carolinas and us Canadians on the Labor Day weekend while John threatens Mexico on its Pacific Coast.

From the sublime to the blazingly obvious, wouldn't you know it, most Bible believing Christians who take that whole 'God gave the land of Israel to the Jews' thing seriously are Israel's biggest supporters.

I found this tidbit interesting as certain parts of Russia are now making studies of Orthodox Christianity mandatory in its classrooms.

Also on the education front, found a good link from K-House on the Theory of Evolution. It really is one of my better links in this post. A must-read.

What does it take for someone to be considered a traitor to one's country these days? The Radical Left is at it again, getting played like a fiddle by the West's enemies. Criticize Bush's policies all you want, but organizing America's surrender to Islam in Iraq IS being a out and out traitor as far as I'm concerned.

Dr. Ghazi Hamad, PA gov't spokesman, is making some very tough observations about the chaos that is engulfing the Gaza Strip. Dr. Hamad is a Muslim who is very much devoted to the Palestinian cause. However, he makes some very strong statements that some invariably will not like. Think of this as the 'thin edge of the wedge' if you will.

Oh Ralphie (Klein), what will Canadian politics be without you? Probably an annoying shade of beige I'm guessing.

I'm making my big move tomorrow and Saturday. I will probably be up and running at my new place with my new computer and continue blogging on the X-Def. Stay tuned!
