Don’t Environmentalists Have Respect for Native American Achievements?

You certainly think they would, since they are leftists.  Apparently Greenpeace doesn’t, because they set up one of their messages next to one of the more famous Nazca drawings in Peru, and it looks like the footprints and tire tracks they left getting to the site have damaged the monument.  If you want to discredit the cause you’re supporting, here’s how to do it!

And here is the article:

This Greenpeace Stunt May Hare Irreparably Damaged Peru’s Nazca Site

For me, this struck home because three years ago, I wrote about the Nazca civilization, for Chapter 1 of my Latin American history project.  Of course I wanted to put in a picture showing an example of the Nazca lines, so I went to my books and scanned a picture of the very same formation, the “hummingbird geoglyph”:

Considering that the lines are more than a thousand years old, I didn’t think the picture would go out of date this quickly!

Israeli Spies Falsifying History to Show Jews Built Pyramids

 

http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Israeli-spies-falsifying-Egyptian-history-to-show-Jews-built-pyramids-374940

 

Well, well, well.  A few times in the past I have reported here about the crazy crackpot ideas that have come out of the Islamic world, especially Egypt.  See my messages from June 13, 2007 and April 30, 2012 for a few examples.  Now the article I just linked to shows us that the Moslem Brotherhood may no longer be in power, but Egypt is still producing more than its share of anti-Semites and conspiracy theories.  This one comes from the same guy who tried to sue Israel for inflicting the Ten Plagues on Egypt, without saying a word about the enslavement of Israelites that started the whole affair.

With the latest claim I would point out, for a start, that the theory suggesting that Pharaoh Sheshonq I = Shishak is not a recent Israeli invention.  Some European reading hieroglyphics at the temple of Karnak, nearly two hundred years ago, came up with that idea.  Perhaps Mr. Gamal would prefer David Rohl’s theory, that Shishak is none other than Ramses the Great?  And as for the treasures found in the tombs of the pharaohs at Tanis, I can make a case that they were stolen from earlier pharaohs like Amenhotep III, not from the Israelites.

D-Day Plus 70

You’ve probably heard that today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the key World War II battle that marked the beginning of the liberation of France, and the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.  For me it’s hard to believe that many years have gone by; for today’s school kids, World War II is further into the past than the Spanish-American War is for me.  Here are two articles to commemorate this day:

 

A tribute to the soldiers who fought on that fateful day.

 

A heartwarming story about a British D-Day veteran who sneaked out of his nursing home and went over to France so he could take part in what may be his last D-Day ceremony.

Goodbye Mozilla

Well, the queer mafia, the Gaystapo, have struck again.  This time they went after Brandon Eich, the inventor of Javascript.  What was his crime?  Six years ago, he gave $1,000 to the campaign for Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative supporting traditional marriage.  Just a few days after Eich became CEO of the Mozilla corporation, word of this got out, and he was forced to resign.  Click on the link below if you’re not familiar with the story.

Gosh, before this controversy came up, I never paid attention to the sexual preference of the inventor of a software package.  Or that of the CEO of a high-tech company.

Judging by how many cities and states have legalized gay marriage recently, a lot of people must have changed their minds on the issue since 2008.  Have the Gaystapo considered that Eich might have changed his views in the past six years?  One politician who did was a certain Illinois senator who now happens to be president of the United States.  Another is Hillary Clinton; she said this in 2000:

“Marriage has a historic, religious and moral context that goes back to the beginning of time. And I think a marriage has always been between a man and a woman.”

If today’s Democrats are reminded of the above quote, how long will it take for them to expel her from the Democratic Party?

If you don’t think it is possible in a democracy for the majority of the population to be terrorized by a minority, look how arrogant the homosexual community has become.  Forty years ago, homosexuals were a bullied group, but now they’re the bullies to the rest of us.  Don’t believe the ten percent figure given by the Kinsey Report; judging by how often we meet homosexuals in real life, they’re probably just two percent of the population, three percent at the most.  And yet they insist on forcing their lifestyle into parts of the culture that have nothing to do with sex, like St. Patrick’s Day parades.  Moreover, the mainstream media seems to have a need to publish a “gay interest” story every week, like we’d forget this group existed if they didn’t.  Well, how about some stories about even less visible groups?  I haven’t read an interesting story about the Eskimos lately, nor one about the Amish.

I will quote from another blog I recently read to show how twisted the other side’s behavior has become.  Quote:

Don’t you people read? Haven’t you learned anything from history? ‘Advancements’ earned through tyranny never endure. You can only win a debate by suffocating your opposition for so long. Your strategy is doomed for failure, because it has always failed.

In the name of ‘fighting for the freedom to love,’ you’ve utilized hate. For the sake of ‘tolerance,’ you’ve wielded bigotry. In order to push ‘diversity,’ you’ve been dogmatic.

You are everything you accuse your opponents of being, and you stand for all the evil things that you claim they champion.

Unquote:  To that I would add that they call themselves “gay,” which used to mean happy, when we see them acting like soreheads far more often.

Because there are a lot more of us than there are of them, it’s time we show the corporations that pander to the gay crowd that they can’t have their business and ours, too, if they’re going to engage in witch hunts.  An easy way to start is to boycott Mozilla.  Sure, Mozilla had something great going with Netscape in the 1990s, and with Firefox when they launched it ten years ago, but the Internet now has so many alternatives that we don’t need them anymore.  I removed Mozilla Firefox from my computer on Friday. Didn’t need it anyway, when any webpage I want to view is accessible through Chrome or Opera. Then on Saturday I uninstalled Mozilla Sunbird and Thunderbird.  My computer is now Mozilla-free.

Have you ever noticed that the big social issues we talked about used to be civil rights, but nowadays (e.g., gay rights, abortion, forcing others to pay for birth control), the issues seem to be more about civil wrongs?

The Holy Grail Has Been Found . . . Again

holygrail-665x385

Back in the 1970s, before he became an archaeologist, my favorite author, David Rohl, had a progressive rock band with his college buddies. Called Mandalaband, they stayed together long enough to produce two albums. Then after publishing his fourth book, "The Lords of Avaris," David revived the band, and they have made two more albums since then. The most recent album, "A.D.: Sangreal," came out in 2011, and has 15 songs about how the Holy Grail got to Spain. Is this the same grail? If so, this is not really news.  After all, long-time readers will remember the time some two and a half years ago, when I bought and reviewed the album.  I guess this is a filler story, now that interest over the missing Malaysian airliner is now fading.

What’s Good About Florida

I have shared with you the weird things about Florida, my former home state, on pages like this one.  And the funny stuff never seems to stop coming.  The latest I’ve seen are the signs on a veterinarian’s office in Eau Gallie, a suburb of Melbourne on the Space Coast:

Still, there are reasons why Florida is about to overtake New York as the state with the third highest population.  While I’ve never been a fan of The Huffington Post, I enjoyed this article that lists 23 of Florida’s good points:

23 Reasons Florida Is Quite Possibly the Best State in America.

Would you believe it, the author even listed the offbeat news stories as an asset, for their entertainment value.  I can think of a few other reasons that weren’t in the article, but I guess it is too much to expect a liberal publication to praise low taxes.
