Rooting for Israel

I think it is time for Israel to pull out all of the stops and put an end to the vicious foolishness that has been happening in the Middle East since 1946.

Demolish Damascus and Tehran and maybe Beirut and the Gaza strip. The Israelis have the wherewithal to do the job. A few nukes here and there and you'd be surprised by the peace and quiet in the region.

I Surprise Rap Crap Chap

My friend and I had parked and were walking toward the Big Lots store and we heard this horribly loud noise. At first we couldn't tell from what direction it was coming. Then as we got near the store it was obvious it was coming from an illegally parked car in front of the store. So I walked over, put my foot on the rear bumper and rocked the car a couple of times. The juvenile inside shut off the music and opened the window.

At that point I had my hands over my ears, but asked, anyway, that he keep the volume down. He asked why I had touched his car and I told him I did it to get his attention. He asked why I didn't just tap on the window. I didn't answer, but any ignoramus would know tapping on the window with all of that loud noise going on would be fruitless. After I walked away, he wound the window back up and turned up the volume even louder as any tantrum-prone teenager would do.

My feeling is that if every right-thinking civilized person would do as I did, those ignorant and selfish people would possibly begin considering their effect upon other people and would modify their behavior. We could begin right in their own homes if only the parents were to use common sense and Christian values in raising their children.

Ignore the BIG Things, Pick on the Little Ones.

Though a lifetime of trying to understand people, I have come to one conclusion: if you present to the typical human a BIG BIG BIG CONCEPT with "something little" embedded in it, THE BIG BIG BIG CONCEPT will be ignored while he picks on the "something little". I suppose I should expect that from little minds.

$Billions for You, Nothing for Me

It's been three years since I became disabled.

It's been almost three years since I applied for Social Security Disability.

It's been three months (today) since my appeals hearing.

And during all of this time I've had to borrow money to supplement what's left of my meager savings in order to pay the bills and to live.

But, of course, the government is too busy sending $billions to the muslim nations around the Indian Ocean for tsunami relief, $billions to the Gulf Coast for Hurricane Katrina relief, $millions for medical support for illegal immigrants, $millions for educational support for illegal immigrants, $billions to civilize Iraq which wants nothing to do with civilization.

I'm not necessarily saying there's anything wrong with the money the government is spending on those things. I'm just saying where my $thousand? I spent years being a good citizen and working and paying taxes and paying into Social Security.

Now where's the help when I need it?

"Prophet of Doom"

Beginning the week of March 12 SpelledSideways will be republishing Craig Winn's book "The Prophet of Doom: Islam's Terrorist Dogma, In Muhammad's Own Words".

In the book "He shines a bright and revealing light on Islam, Judaism, Christianity, political correctness, profiling, intelligence gathering, politics, martyrdom, the peace process, and the media's fear of the truth."


One chapter a week will be published (with links to previous chapters so that latecomers to the series of articles can catch up).

I hope that all of you take a little time to read this work at SpelledSideways' islamism page.

Microsoft's Highlighting Aggravation

If I could add up the time spent over the past 10 years, it would probably be at least three weeks spent trying to highlight only the text that I want to highlight...not what Microsoft thinks I want to highlight. Why, in Ellen's name, does it think I want to highlight the whole word or sentence when I only want to highlight that portion that I want to change? That's the reason, Microsoft, that I stopped highlighting at that particular spot in the word/sentence. LET ME DO IT THE WAY I WANT TO DO IT, DAMN IT. IT'S MY COMPUTER.

More Mohamhead Cartoons

For cartoons critical of the islamist response to the original twelve Danish cartoons, visit http://www.zombietime.com/mohammed_image_archive/recent/ .

Will the Cartoon Wars ever end? In this form, maybe. But the islamic heathens will find another reason to riot and kill children.

Google Pulls AdSense from SpelledSideways

There are no longer any Google AdSense ads on the pages of SpelledSideways.;

Google closed the account, according to the Googlers, because of fraudulent ad clicking.

I emailed them three times, explaining the mistake they were making. I tried to show them that, if there were any fraudulent ad clicking, it was done by overzealous and misguided friends and family.

But apparently to no avail

However, Iím beginning now to believe that fraudulent ad clicking was not the real reason for the account closing.

Look at these two previous posts: Google's Censorship in China and Google Replies to Criticism.

I also published the same two items on SpelledSideways. (They are no longer there because old items are dropped as new items are published.)

That, I believe, is the real reason for the closing of my AdSense account. I bit the hand that wasnít feeding me. Donít forget (as I did): Blogger.com is owned by Google.

Google Replies to Criticism


Below is the reply I got from Google to the eletter I sent to them (see previous post below) about their hypocrisy regarding self-censorship.

Of course, youíll notice that they did not answer my question:î How hypocritical can Google become?î (Iíve got to assume that the reply is boilerplate specifically written for this situation.)



Thank you for contacting us about Google.cn. We launched Google.cn for our users in the People's Republic of China who want to search and browse in Simplified Chinese. Making our site available to millions of users in their preferred language is a critical part of our mission to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful.

At first, Google.cn will serve Google Web Search, Google Image Search, Google Local, and Google News. Over time, we'll provide more Google services tailored for the China market. In launching Google.cn, we aim to balance three important values: users' interests, expanding access to information, and responding to local conditions in the markets we serve. Prior to this launch, many users in China were unable to access our site, and those who were able to access it often experienced persistent latency, delay, and time-out issues. With Google.cn, users can now access much more information, much more quickly.

As you may know, to operate a web service in China, we must remove a small percentage of content from the search results available on Google.cn. The decision to do that was not an easy one for Google, in light of our mission "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." After a long process of study, analysis, and debate about the many technical, business, and ethical considerations, we concluded that the best available option was to provide our Chinese users with a search service that, while filtered, will be faster, more reliable, and, overall, more comprehensive than what's available today. Given the current filtering that's performed on the entire internet in China, Google.cn will provide no less information than would otherwise be available. In fact, we believe that our advanced, innovative search technologies will make a noticeable net increase in the amount of information accessible to our Chinese users.

So, while removing this content may seem inconsistent with our mission, we believe that Google.cn will significantly improve the user experience and increase the overall accessibility of information in China. Our view is that providing as much information as possible is better than providing no information at all -- or providing such a heavily degraded user experience that it basically amounts to no information. Moreover, we think it's important to give users some meaningful disclosure whenever some results have been removed; in those cases, Google.cn clearly presents a message that says, "In response to local laws, regulations, or policies, one or more search results do not appear." It's also worth noting that Google.com will continue to be available, unfiltered, for all internet users worldwide, including those in China.

China is developing rapidly, thanks in no small measure to the internet. We firmly believe that with Google's culture of innovation, we can make meaningful and positive contributions to the already impressive pace of development in China.

We appreciate your interest in Google and your taking the time to share your concerns with us.

Regards,
The Google Team

Google's Censorship in China

Please do your part in the global fight against censorship. Let them know that youíre fightiní mad.

Below is an eletter I sent to Google in response to a news article I read on CNN (http://money.cnn.com/2006/01/25/news/international/google_china.reut/index.htm?cnn=yes) that says, in part, î[Google] will block politically sensitive terms on its new China site.

Gentlemen,

The following quotation is from your web site:

"We're committed to providing thorough and unbiased search results for our users; therefore, we cannot participate in the practice of censorship." (Found at http://www.google.com/webmasters/remove.html.)

But, of course, that doesn't apply to China, does it?

Please tell me: How hypocritical can Google become?
