    42 Year Old Goals - Are they Still Active?

    I go to Cao's Blog often. She isn't afraid to remind us of the real issues that can end up being our undoing unless something is done by the good people.
    Reading it today and paging down I came across a post she has titled 1963 Communist Goals. These are not her words but she (as usual) provides the evidence of their existence. In this case the words were entered into the Congressional record in 1963 by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-1969). Anyone recognize any of those goals on the list? Anyone think some number of them have already been accomplished?
    Read her main post as well and the must-read terrorism and Islam, especially the series Jihad comes to Smalltown, USA. Is anyone awake out there? Anyone care about our country more than American Idol or who's dating Paris Hilton? Hello? HELLO? HELLLLLLOOOOO?

    Hey, Maddie. Since when did you change your calling card to justadog? Anyway, thanks for the linkage and recognition. You're a peach. I DO try to put out what's really happening, in spite of peoples' PC objections. IMO, we're facing some real trouble if we don't keep these things at the forefront of our minds. Love ya. Cao.

    I don't read Cao very often because I usually find that she is 100% pro Bush; no thought process involved -- it's Bush right or wrong and wrong is not a consideration.

    As I've already said, I don't read her often so I may have a skewed opinion.

    Seems like a poor excuse to limit your information resources - "I usually find that she is 100% pro Bush". I think if you scan through her posts you will actually find very little Bush and more of actual facts - facts that you or I can check out for ourselves. Cao does her research and it shows. Of course he will express her opinions on such research results but so what?

    Now if you have a disagreement on facts then put forth your counter-evidence. I think "you people" that have some odd-ball hatred of Bush better listen to what is being said by those you label as "pro-Bush" since they put him into office by a huge majority despite all the hate the other side generated and despite fat slob Moore (did you actually buy his DVD?).

    This is one reason I'm an independant - I'm free to search for facts from both sides without some guilt trip that I'm betraying this party or that party. Are you?

    The only problem with the "Jihad" issue is that westerners--mostly due to a Christian influence, (whether they acutally practice any religous belief or not) continueally confuse the concept of "Jihad" as set out in the Quran with the adaptation that has been instituted by radical secular Islamists that do not believe their religion any more than most of our televangelists here in America belive in the Bible. We seem to forget that the entire Old Testament is full of God leading the Israelites on campaigns of war and mass murder to eliminate the heathen and ungodly and acquire land and riches. WE forget that Christ said in the New Testament, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace but a sword." (Matt 10:34). There is also the Apostle Paul telling the early church to "fight the good fight of faith" and to "put on the whole armour of God." The book of Revelation depicts the armies of heaven led by he who comes with the sword of vengeance. Our bible if full from cover to cover, with pictures of war and violence against the unbeliever. Christians and westerners in general rise in rigtheous indignation when one points this out with the counter that those are not literal commands, but allegory and figure of speech common to that day. Christ may have been right though, because the history of the Christian church is the history of war, conquest, torture, etc. Al those things that we rush to point out were done not by the godly but by corrupted men. True Islamics take the same view of how Islam is being used and how their own corrupted leadership has desecrated a religion based on the same god, the same tribes, and the same moral precepts expressed in Arabic instead of Hebrew. The real problem is that we are focusing on Islam, when the threat is not Islam nor is it quranic teaching. It is the teaching of extremists who do not believe their religion anymore than agnostics and communists in this country ignore the foundations of our society. That keeps us from properly identifying the threat and going after the proper enemy. What we are doing now is not much different than the papal actions to convert or eliminate the heathen during the dark ages.

    Sorry pundit, but some of your Bible quotes are figurative, like "I came not to send peace but a sword" - figurative, not a superficial call for some holy war. "fight the good fight of faith" and to "put on the whole armour of God." - again, purely figurative. Sort of like a family member dead from cancer and the relatives saying what a "good fight to live" that person made. Do you really envision a physical combat? I think you're really getting low on facts to try to convince anyone of your point.

    So are you saying that it is wrong to focus on the Islam "faith" as a possible identifier of a terrorist? Of course, not exactly 100% of terrorists acts are carried out by an Islamic extremist - well, I'm not sure on that... Hmmm. Well if not 100% it is pretty high.

    Let's say you were the CIA chief. Would you put your claims that you try to convince us of here into action and tell your analysis’s to drop any and all Islamic identifiers and instead focus on Catholics or Hindus or some other religion? I'd be more impressed if you had factual data of how many terrorists have been Islamic and how many have not.

    What we are doing now is not much different than the papal actions to convert or eliminate the heathen during the dark ages. - sorry, but it is a hell of a lot different. Walk away from the dusty books someday and smell the real world!

    Besides--using Islamic identifiers misses the point. There are over 1.5 billion practicing muslims in the world. Identifiers or not, just how many and whom should we track: Also, one of the reasons that our intel community missed what happened on 9/11 was not because we weren't watching the Islamic community. The problem was we WERE watching that community, but totally missed what the RADICALS were doing, right here under our noses. Our intel people were monitoring websites and religious communities here in the states and not paying a lot of attention to other traffic. And like I said--anytime you mention anything about Biblical references to war, the response is "it's figurative" or "it's allegorical."
    We are totally unable to see things any other way because we have been conditioned all of our lives that there is no other way but our way and everybody else is a heathen. The same as they are conditioned to think about us.

    So if you find a post in someone's blog that's not about politics, is it really safe to assume that all that person is concerned about is Hollywood and entertainment? And that - that person has no interest in politics or even cares about what's going on in the world?

    Is it not possible that a person can have more than one interest?

    You couldn't be that simple minded, could you?
