Politics once again!

I see the "Republicans", a term not associated with what a true republican is, seem to be hell bent on blaming everything on Obama. Where do I begin, oh yes the Afghan "war" which was started by a republican senate / house and a republican president, now being blamed on Obama for starting it. WTF!!! I know the victors rewrite history but the republicans where the losers why are they doing it? Oh yes the tea party which has no clue what they are even about.

Frustration at being ridiculous.

Economics and the Al-Qaeda attack lie

I happen to run across this little gem of an article today Al-Qaeda linked by one of my favorite sites Most people of this great land of ours the good old USofA do not have more than an 8th grade education and can't read. So when a stupid sensational tidbit of info comes by like this it makes me wonder. Being a Network Engineer for large ISP I find this idea of being able to take down financial website with a DDoS absurd. If a large bank or financial allowed the attack of its website to fail during a denial of service the IT staff should be fired. In this day and age of cheap hosting, cheap bandwidth, cheap servers, cheap network hardware, routing black lists, I find the very notion of this sad and pathetic. One has to be a total fool or completely ignorant of current network infrastructure hardware and security technology to believe that an attack of any magnitude could affect every financial service provider.

Iran the US and its Presidents

It is enlightening to see how the Iranians are reaching out to the United States and our government ignores them without even an acknowledgment. While Iranians may support Hesbollah the Israelis have only them selves to blame for it, as the Israelis where the fist to fund Hesbollah and only stopped when it seems that they could not longer control Hesbollah.

Today we see a letter from a well educated Iranian president attempting to halt genocide. . is a good example of someone with clue on world politics and a varied education to boot.

And so i end this short blurb by saying do we dare respond at get detained by Homeland security as a terrorist sympathizer or do we respond and actually improve relations?

Our View of the World often Skewed

This is my first post to my blog. I plan to write about those things which seem to be true but are skewed by our prejudices , religious views or total lack of understanding about other cultures. I do not wish to offend anyone with regard to religion though please understand I was a former Catholic now not really any religion. My view like those of others with a mind have found religion too narrowly focused to allow it to skew our view of the world.
