The Syndicate

My time on disability was not completely wasted. Made this little comedy doohickey (12 minutes worth) with Windows Movie Maker! It was quite fun.

It may take a minute to buffer properly. Just hang in there!!!

Mmm, Fresh Posting Tastes Great!

In 1786, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson met with Arab diplomats from Tunis, a country located between Libya and Algeria, who were conducting terror raids and piracy against American ships. The main issue they detailed here -

“We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretensions to make war upon a Nation who had done them no Injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our Friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

And on to other topics......

Many a great quote came from this man.

George Washington
1793 - letter to the Members of the New Church in Baltimore

We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this Land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition, and that every person may here worship God according to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened Age and in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a man's religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining and holding the highest Offices that are known in the United States.

George Washington
1789 - First Inaugural Address

[T]he propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.

"Animusic-Pipe Dream" on Google Video

In the midst of a hectic day, take three and a half minutes to divert your attention from tasks you need to complete. Just relax and watch this video. Then after soaking up the amazement, sink into a deep depression knowing that people have careers that pay them to play on their computers creating fabulous CGI animations while you are paid peanuts slaving away at your deadend, thank-less job.

Just something to brighten your day!!
