Boston Marathon bombing is the US fault?

I came across this last week:
A United Nations official known for blaming the U.S. for unrest in the Middle East has angered critics again by blaming the Boston Marathon bombings on “American global domination.”

"The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world," Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council's Palestine monitor, wrote in an article for Foreign Policy Journal titled, “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders."

"It is soon to tell, and the somewhat hysterical Boston dragnet for the remaining at large and alive suspect does suggest that the wounds of 9/11 are far from healed," he wrote. "We should be asking ourselves at this moment, 'How many canaries will have to die before we awaken from our geopolitical fantasy of global domination?'”
Is the U.S. really to blame for their citizens being killed like this fellow at the U.N. says? What do you think? I know what I think.

Respect for America is disappearing

The respect that was once given to the USA by the rest of the world, it seems that it has been replace by disrespect, hatefulness and mistrust by a lot of countries -- even countries that are supposed to be friends of the USA. If all the reports from the media are to be believed there is always one country that always has something to say against the USA.

We hear a lot about diplomacy which is good, because with the weapons that have been developed, this has become a dangerous world. Without diplomacy, it could be a disaster. There is such a thing as diplomacy being used to gain time to finish whatever an enemy would want to accomplish and therefore diplomacy becomes a tool for the enemy of a country if its keeps on and on without any sign of showing results.

Iran is a good example of this. That is the impression I get from reading the news. How many times there were meetings in regards to their nuclear ambitions? It has all been to no avail. Diplomacy works most of the time but when it's stretched too far it becomes a tool for the enemy. North Korea without any diplomacy could have brought on a disaster.  But the tyrants there could have been wiped off the map.  This time diplomacy from the USA and China may have worked.

What surprised me is that the president of the USA sending B2 bombers to show what North Korea would have to deal with if they didn't stand down. Now I wonder if a show of force would work the same with the Iranians. I really think that it will happen eventually, because I don’t think that these people will stop working to obtain nuclear bombs. They’re determent to do away with Israel.  I just hope that diplomacy is not pushed too far that it would give them time achieve their goal.

That's my rant for the day.

Is this a weird question or not?

I had some visitors the other day and we were discussing a bunch of different things. During the conversation for some reason or other, we ended up by talking about Christ and the Bible. I was asked a question and this question was, “If God created Adam and Eve, who created God?” To me it was a weird question to ask because I don’t think anyone can answer that.

Well, having a suspicious mind, when someone would ask me something of the sort, I become suspicious as to why this person would ask me that sort of question. Now was it just to see what kind of answer I would give? Or was it just to get me thinking on that sort of thing and maybe lower my belief in Christianity? Or maybe it was just an innocent question to ask for lack of anything else to say.

I don’t think that a person that would ask that kind of question would have a deep faith in Christianity, because if that person knew what the Bible said about "In the beginning..." in Genesis and in other parts of the Bible, they would know that what the Christian view of God being eternal was, and they would already know the answer to the question and need not ask it.

That's my observation of the day, not a rant but something I wondered if people thought was a weird question or not.

Funny people

This is the time of the year that I enjoy going for a walk and expecting to see some people’s actions and manners while walking. I call these funny people, although some acts committed by some of them can be gross and others just plain laughable and stupid. Here's an example of what happened on my first walk to Ottawa this year.

Let me start by explaining why I walk to Ottawa.  I live in the Gatineau sector of Hull and to go to Ottawa from where I live, I have to cross a bridge called the Inter-provincial Bridge.  By doing so you end up in downtown Ottawa. I like to go for walks, and walking to Ottawa is longer but a nice change from walking the same streets of Hull every day.

So, for my first walk to Ottawa this year, I wasn't on that bridge for five minutes when I spotted what I was looking for - a couple of these funny people. I should add that this old bridge, is built solidly with big steel beams because the trains used to pass on this bridge and of course for reinforcement, the top of this bridge was built like an archway.

Now as I was walking toward where this woman was standing, I noticed that she was yelling and swearing and her hands were up in the air and with one shaky finger she was pointing at the archway.  She was really giving it a blast of what she thought. I thought to myself that maybe she was talking to someone on a cell phone but when I looked for one, I couldn't see one. Funny.  Maybe she was crazy, but it was entertaining in a way.

Then the other one, just a couple feet away from this woman, I noticed each time someone would get close to him, he would turn around and start banging away on the railing of the bridge and look at the passerby with a big grin and eyes open as big as a loony. It was a real look of a maniac. I took a good look thinking that he had a radio or something, but no, he was just a happy person in his own little world just like the woman.  Of course she was not too happy in her little world, at least on that morning the way those beams were getting blasted by her.

I hope we have a nice weekend coming up.  Then I can check out Rideau Street and Bank Street.  Those are the streets that have people like that night and day, seven days a week.

That’s my rant of the day.  Maybe it's not exactly a rant so much as an observation, but I wanted to share it with you.

Are you a Christian?

Are you a Christian or a hypocrite?  If you are a Christian then be one and don’t be scared to admit it. I know there are a lot of people who will not admit to being a Christian these days because they don’t want to offend anyone.  Being a Christian does not offend anyone. If it does, it’s because the ones that are offended are the non-believers and if they don’t believe that is their prerogative. All I can say to those who deny being a Christian will see on judgment day what a big mistake they have made just to appease someone. Those are the ones I call hypocrites. 

This world of today is full of that type of people. Here in Canada we don’t hear too much of that. It’s especially in the USA where this appears to be a problem. But taking into account the size of the population of the USA compared to Canada, actually we have just as much per capita. 

But when it comes to professors like this teacher Deandra Poole in a Florida University getting the students to write down the word Jesus then put the paper on the floor and the word Jesus facing up then telling them to stomp on it then I would say this is going a little too far and that teacher should be fired.

**** I forgot to mention this. Do you remember a time when the majority adopted the result of whatever the subject was about? These days it’s we don’t want to offend anyone, and the more it goes on the more the minority wins. 

**** Another thing - governments should stay out of religion. Religion is religion and the government is the government, and the government should not have any say as far as religion goes. They were elected to run the country and not to dictate what should be or not happen with respect to religion. If the majority of people are Christians then let them be.  If they want crucifix or anything that represents a Christians belief hanging on the walls then let it be.  If some unbelievers don’t like it they don’t have to look at it or they can just stay out of whatever place that these things that offends them reside. Besides they know they will see that stuff if they go into certain buildings.If they are non-believers they have no business in there in the first place.

That’s my little rant of the day

Have a good day

Open letter to the Premier of the province of Québec.

Pauline Marois,

According to what is reported by the media, it seems that you want to make this province unilingual instead of trying to get along with everyone else in this one country, which is called Canada.

Well, by trying to do that you are creating resentfulness and hate for the French in both provinces Ontario and Québec and probably other provinces too. Do you think that you can expect any company that would be worthwhile to this province to come over here and open a business when they would only be allowed to work in French only?

This province has been almost bankrupted by the Liberals and now by trying to push French only could be the end of this province.

In this province as it is there not enough jobs created by this government for the workers that are here. What would happen if the employers in Ottawa would get together and say that’s it, we will only hire the people in this province French or English, as long as they are permanent residents of this province?

 How many people from this province work in the province of Ontario now? Every morning the roads from this province are jammed with the Québec workers going to Ontario and if it wasn’t for Ontario, your welfare office couldn’t afford the help for the people that would be on it.

It should not be too long now before this might come to pass. I listen to the people on the Lowell Green talk show every morning. I can tell you that the people of Ontario and a lot from this province calling in are complaining about this unnecessary law of  bill c101. Before that came out there wasn’t as much hatred for French Quebecers as there is now.

This province will never be able to go it alone not the way it is being governed at this time. In order for this province to get back to what it used to be, bill C101 would have to go and this province would have to become bilingual.  Only then it might have a chance to survive and be better off for the next generation. The French language will never disappear from this country. The whole province might become a province of the past to be forgotten in history as a province that could not get along with its partners because of the languages.

Tongue wagging without the engagement of brains

Lowell Green

While listening to the radio station CFRA the other morning (like I always do, especially the Lowell Green show) my blood pressure surely must have spiked.

This talk show seems like the more people criticize Québec, the more Lowell Green has to say. I hate to say this but some of it does make sense. This morning in question, Québec was attacked again and again about the language and corruption and funding from the federal government. To hear Lowell Green and others apparently they have in mind that this province doesn’t contribute to the federal government. This is the impression that I get from listening to some of these complaints.
