Kinda cool

Isn't it ironic that in the middle of this economic crisis our government takes a break to observe Rosh Hashanah which, is a time to repent and become righteous. It is characterized by blowing the shofar which is intended to awaken the listener from his 'slumber' and to alert them of coming judgment. I don't believe America sees the correlation.

Royal Navy's New Super Sub

Once she goes into operation in 2009, Astute will carry a 98-man crew and stay at sea for 12 weeks. Her nuclear-powered engine will propel her through the water at more than 20 knots, yet the UK's first stealth sub makes less noise than a baby dolphin, making her as good as undetectable.

U.S. Marine Cpl. Garrett Jones was re-deployed just a year after losing his left leg to a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq as an infantry fighter. In previous wars, Jones would have received a medical discharge and returned to civilian life. But the Pentagon has made it possible for Marines who’d like to return to the front lines, to return.

Does Islam Justify Honor Killings?

What kind of an ideology causes a man to show no remorse for murdering his own daughter, but rants and raves at being served ham sandwiches while in prison? The media picked up the story quickly and asked, "Is Islam to blame?"

In defense of Macsmind

This is MacRanger of Macsmind. As you know I was hacked by operatives of the Obama Campaign last month. Well, it happened again. Basically they flooded the site with “sql bombs” according to the host that caused the shared server to stop running. Subsequently be had to disable the site. This had to do with running the “Obama wants to Disarm America” post which more than 2 million people viewed on the site. Just like the goons in Missouri, the Obama truthers can’t let the truth be known. I’ve now moved the blog back to blogspot at macsmind.blogspot.com at least temporally. Because of the hacking job I had to move to another host but unfortunately they haven’t got the server up yet to redirect the traffic to blogspot. I would appreciate a mention to your readers. I’m getting a couple of hundred emails about “what happened”, but as you can imagine it hard to get the word out by reply.



Here is the temporary Macsmind blog.

"In order to augment the defences for stopping the Russian invasion on united india a 42 Kms long Khyber Railway was built by them in 1920s from Peshawar to Landi Kotal at an enormous cost of $ 6 millions by the British. This is one of the most historical and interesting train journey in the world today. As the train coaches are pulled and pushed by two 1920s model vintage oil fired steam engines to clim 1200 meters through 34 tunnels and 92 bridges and culvets. At one point the track climbs to 130 meters after a journey of 1.5 kilometers. A section of track is also shaped like a W and the train has to breathe hevily before changing directions. The tribes people travel free as part of the contract agreed upon whn they allowed the British to build the railway through their territory, and this rule is still honored. "

Gray Lady dons a cheerleader skirt

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Shortly before John McCain suspended his campaign to help with the Wall Street bailout, his generals declared war on The New York Times.

The New York Times is clearly rooting for Barack Obama (just as it was rooting for McCain against Bush in 2000). As Kurtz has demonstrated, the Times has soft-pedaled Obama's ties to William Ayers, an unrepentant domestic terrorist whose former outfit, The Weathermen, bombed the Pentagon and other American targets.

Times editorials read like Obama press releases. On McCain's controversial ad criticizing Obama's vote for a sex-ed bill in the Illinois legislature, the Times proclaimed that McCain "flat-out lies" and argued that "at most, kindergarteners were to be taught the dangers of sexual predators." A plain reading of the actual bill shows that the Times is flat-out lying.
