The Oil Tanker and The Gun Runner.

Condoleeza Rice is the greatest oil lobbyist of all time. By her own words President Bush is her husband. Chevron/Texaco named a tanker after her. Click link for more on this http://www.aztlan.net/oiltanker.htm (It’s since had its name changed). Never forget the business of foreign policy is .. business. Gates (no not Bill..Robert) is Rummy’s replacement. They announced they are giving military aid the the middle-east again, this from Bushes vacation home in Crawford. Another crook and liar with no plan other than to bring more guns and bombs to the table. For peace thru superior firepower. God help us. Why worry about Ney and Abramimoff and Libby when the SecState is the greatest oil lobbyist of all time. Wake up sheeple. It is and was about the oil.

Peace..a great idea whose time has come..again.

The Anti-Job

I used to consider myself the anti-job, refusing God despite all he was doing for me. Now that I have begun anew as a Christian I am re-reading the book of Job. Ironic because I am about to lose everything becase of accusers and lack of a job. Eviction, loss of my family my water and power and most of my meaningless possesions. The lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. All part of the plan. Amen

Darth Cheney A.K.A Ticking Dick to get new powerplant for his ice cold cyberheart.

Why preserve a man who's been dead for years? (and has no soul)

If Windows Vista was a positronic robot I'd have to use the electron gun...

Susan Calvert would never tolerate Vista.

Honestly..I warned them all that it was trouble. XP is the only version of Windows that is relatively easy to use. I advised (friends) not to purchase Vista systems... Unless you turn off user controlls it behaves like an unrully robot questioning every move you make..even shut down. I am unable to play (not copy) my owned dvd's with either Win Media player or win media center. Gateway wanted me to call Microsoft when per their agreement they have to support it. ( Microsoft caved in to my former employers..I cant say their name due to non disclosure agreement but I will eventually!!! [Soon Only Not Yet} the worlds largest electronics manufacturer) Avoid vista systems at all costs ..at least till the 2nd or 3rd service pack..maybe never..stick to xp. The link explains why it's not ready for prime time in detail. Peace out

P.S> I havent even got into the Driver and gaming issues and why the current hardware is not sufficient to utilize the OS.

P.S.S Dell has opted to ship units with XP intead of Vista due to enormous customer requests. Good JOb Guys!! IMHO every time a new OS comes out BY LAW Microsoft should be required to config the system dual boot with the previous OS. Write your congressman.

The Book of Psalms

I have found a great deal of strength and inspiration from the book of Psalms. I have been reading a passage or 2 or 3 daily. They are short and powerfull. Biblegateway is a great way to find any passage quick and easy. Just click the title of this post. Below: Psalm 25

1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 in you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.
4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
5 guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD.
8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD ? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
13 He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.
18 Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.
19 See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!

Peace be with you and God bless all of you.

No direction home (part 1 only)

I was fortunate enough to see Bob Dylan a few years back when he played at the Lee Civic center on a blue grass ticket with Allison Krauss as the opening act. What stood out was the Hendrix-ified version of "All along the watchtower" and the steel guitar replacing the organ on most other tracks. The steel git was really cool on "Just like a woman" The link is to part one of Martin Scorsese's "No direction home", his documentary on Dylans early years. I saw it several times on PBS and now you can enjoy on youtube. Peace out,

Christ Community Church

This is my church. I am amazed at the positive things that are happeneing in my life as a result or despite of my conversion. I never expected miracles or instant results but I cannot count the number of wonderous events that have occured. God's love cannot be quantified, it's infinite.

What every widow knows

If every wife knew what every widows know, no home would be with out life insurance.

Speilberg does it again!!

Most of us are fans of Mr. Speilbergs (not E.T.). I think he gained a lot of insight from working with the late great Stanley Kubrick on the film "A.I."
The man obviously loves his robots. So do I.
Tranformers rocks.
Go see it and thank Steve and buy a toy from Hasboro.
I personally loved John Tuturo as the Section 7 agent and Jon Voight as the SecDef.

Oh Yeah the P.O.T.U.S. has thing for ding-dongs.

Off the wall: Born Again!

http://spazioturchese-artistico.blogspot.com Wow! a blogger visited my blog! Now if they would just click the google ad......

Born Again!

O.K. This will blow most everyone's mind. I am a born again Christian. Much of what I have been doing here was all a precursor to my accepting Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I am a recovering..Pot Head. I am approximately 30 days clean and sober. After 32 years of denial, agnosticism and reading so-so many books except the one that really matters, I have turned my life over to Christ. Giving up reefer was easy. Cutting loose 30 year friendships that are bad for me (Including my Mother and Sister) was and is extremely difficult. My new family and friends are at my community church which I will not name till I have permission. This is not something I do lightly. Ironically or perhaps divinely, I was baptised yesterday in of all places the Cape Coral Yacht Club pool. Ironic because this is where I used to take my cassette case full of nicely rolled joints to "Find the party" Peace out and God Bless.

A higher power

When you can’t count on your friends (most of ‘em) or family (sic) and you know in your heart of hearts you are doing the right thing, it’s time to reach out to whatever higher power you believe in. Not everything can be handled by science and logic. Amen.

"The Natural Mind"

I have been given grief by hypocritical (as opposed to hippocrratical) Drs. and Nurses about my so called Drug abuse. ( I used to use but I NEVER abused).

My father although many things in his life, went to school for pharmacology. I have always been interested in this subject. At the tender age 12 I inhaled (ahem) "Altered states of Conciousness" by Charles C. Tart . This book covers everything from dreaming to LSD. A terrific book on the subject. Another even more powerfull book on this is "The Natural Mind" by Dr. Andrew Weil, a medical doctor, former drug expert and ethnobotanist to name a few of his hats. I will never advocate or rag on drug use. This book is completly objective and makes a truly neutral case. I recommend it to anyone who has any preconceptions about foods, drugs and their effect on human conciousness and physiology. This is the best education for kids as well as parents on drugs and their use. Also one of the best books on concioussness ever written. Please take it out of your library or buy a copy and give it to a Dr. or Nurse you know. Please.

Psychic Leeches

I have vented and all who are worried, should not be. I have never been better. I have cut all of the losers out of my life by design, there was know way i could move foward while anchored to undeserved and false loyalties to family and friends (sic). Now on to more posistive posts.

Guns,Drugs, Motorcycles and powertools (machinery)

All can kill you. If you study first, practice (a lot) take all precautions and are confident of what you are doing you might not get hurt. Nuff said.

Fractals and nature

It is my speculation that a possible way God (or whatev) initiated the big bang is with a piece of code . After eons of iterations the universe we now exist in is observable. Just look up fractals in google and try to explain why algorithm based digital art always replicates the designs of nature. Anybody who knows of a good fractal proggie for xp let me know (donformica@gmail.com) ..I used to run fractint 32 under dos but cant find and easy to use one for XP. (Vista is all bloatware avoid at all costs) Peace out, Ray.
