Saudi's Defect........ See what I mean folks? Give the bastards enough time and money and support, and sure enough, they'll turn on ya! The Saudi's are already showing their colors and it spells "TERRORISTS"! The Saudi's would be over-run immediately if we withdraw our military presence. These bastards are all alike. The entire Arab world has one thought in mind, and that is, the total destruction of the entire free world! Now we have the Human Rights freaks on our ass about everything, but have you ever seen these self serving assholes do any good in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Africa or anywhere else, where there is total liquidation of human life simply because of race or religion?! These so called Human Rights organizations, are in themselves, nothing more than self serving terrorist groups and the right arm of the United Nations!

It's also apparent that Dick Armey has his head up his ass also! According to Armey, on the subject of Saddam Hussein "As long as he behaves himself within his own borders, we should not be addressing any attack or resources against him". I have always been a supporter of Armey, until he made that stupid, blundering statement. Armey, if you look back in history, they tried that dumb approach with a man who tried to annialate the entire human race......let me give you a clue if you're to damned dumb to remember!! The initials are Adolph Hitler, jerk! Here's more on the Camel Jockies.........

Middle East - AP
U.S. Denied Access to Saudi Bases
Wed Aug 7, 8:32 PM ET
By DONNA ABU-NASR, Associated Press Writer

JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Saudi Arabia will not give the United States access to bases in the kingdom for an attack on Saddam Hussein ( news - web sites), but the foreign minister said Wednesday the longtime U.S. ally does not plan to expel American forces from an air base used for flights to monitor Iraq.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Prince Saud said the 70-year-old U.S.-Saudi alliance was just as solid now as before the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the United States.

He said Osama bin Laden ( news - web sites), who was stripped of Saudi citizenship and who directed the al-Qaida attacks, had intended to drive a wedge between the two countries when he chose 15 Saudi citizens to be among the 19 hijackers who crashed planes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon ( news - web sites).

Beyond that, Saud denied the kingdom sends financial aid to Palestinian suicide bombers who have killed more than 260 Israelis in 22 months of Mideast violence.

Opposition to a U.S. attack to overthrow Saddam is gaining strength in Europe as well.

America~A Bygone Era: Famous Steamboat
Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast The Yellow Stone

Not all the gallant veterans of Texas' fight for independence were humans. One was a steamboat -- a side-wheeler named the Yellow Stone.

On March 31, 1836, the Yellow Stone inadvertently stumbled into Texas history. Now under the command of Capt. John E. Ross, the vessel was taking on a load of cotton at Jared Groce's landing in present-day Waller County about 20 miles up the Brazos from San Felipe.

The Alamo had fallen on March 6. Even before that, settlers had begun leaving their homes to escape the advancing Mexican army. After Sam Houston learned of the crushing defeat at the San Antonio mission, he, himself, left Gonzales and "advanced to the rear" toward the Colorado River with the Texas army, urging civilians along the way to flee. The trickle of refugees became a deluge; the mass exodus was called the Runaway Scrape.

Houston's retreat brought him to Groce's landing on March 31 facing a Brazos River swollen by spring rains. Desperate to cross, he commandeered the Yellow Stone to ferry men, horses and equipment to the opposite bank. Capt. Ross stacked his cargo of cotton bales in such a way as to protect the boat's boilers and pilothouse from snipers in case of hostilities. On April 12, Capt. Ross, finally satisfied with the cotton armor and the load of fuel, ferried Houston and his men across the river. Two days later, Ross guided the steamboat, under a full head of steam, on a wild, bumpy ride down river past a Mexican army encampment at Fort Bend. One over-eager Mexican soldier even tried in vain to lasso the smokestacks, the only parts of the superstructure peeking out from the tops of the cotton bales.

Capt. Ross proceeded to Galveston, picking up refugees along the way. On the island, he found President Burnet, many other government officials and a large number of refugees. After the Texans' victory, the Yellow Stone transported Burnet and other officials to the battleground at San Jacinto at the request of Secretary of War Thomas J. Rusk. At Buffalo Bayou, the steamboat played host not only to Sam Houston, who needed medical treatment for a wounded ankle, but also to Gen. Santa Anna, 47 of his officers and other Mexican soldiers. About 80 prisoners were taken to Galveston for incarceration. It is said that Burnet, never a fan of Houston's, refused to let Houston board the boat. But Capt. Ross would not budge until Houston was brought on board.

A Mexican officer, writing of the voyage later, found it curious that, as the Yellow Stone passed the San Jacinto battleground, the Texas troops on board lined the rail and presented arms, accompanied by a solemn military drumbeat. "What was their object?" he wondered.

Dry ice is actually carbon dioxide gas that is compressed until it is liquefied and then frozen. The nifty thing about dry ice is that it changes back to a gas without becoming a liquid, which is where the "dry" part comes into play.

Good Humor Man....Not Guilty....
A lady about eight months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing. She complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

The case came up in court. The judge asked the man (about 20) what he had to say for himself. The man replied, "Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but to notice her condition. She sat under a sign that said, "The double Mint Twins are coming" and I smiled.

Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, "Slogan's Liniment will reduce the swelling" and I had to grin.

Then she placed herself under a sign that said, "William's Big Stick did the trick" and I could hardly contain myself.

But Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that read, "Goodyear rubber could have prevented this accident...." I just lost it."

Outdoor Adventure: Gone Fishin' & Huntin'
Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area
Flaming Gorge, Utah
Big, beautiful Flaming Gorge Lake, enclosed by brightly colored canyon walls and set amidst hundreds of thousands of acres of forested hills, makes up the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. It is a wonderful setting in which to boat, fish, hike, bike or just stare. The Green River below the dam provides some of the best trout fishing opportunities in the state as well as mild white water rafting. Most visitors camp at the dozens of forest service campgrounds in the park, but there are also a few lodges and other places to stay in the area.

Flaming Gorge straddles the Utah/Wyoming border near the northeast corner of Utah. Though it reaches some 60 miles north to Green River, Wyoming, most of the activity and the most dramatic scenery are at its southern end in Utah. The main season runs from May to September, though a few facilities remain open all year for cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and ice fishers. Hunting nearby is T-rrific!! View Area Map.

Outdoor Tip: Layering Tip
If you're going to be out in subfreezing weather, it is essential that you understand how to properly layer your clothing. A basic layering system consists of synthetic underwear that will wick moisture from your skin, a middle insulating layer (e.g. fleece or down) to provide warmth, and an outer shell that will protect you from the elements. The idea is to trap war air between each layer, providing more warmth than if you were just wearing a shirt and jacket. The Shake Flashlight
This is a great gadget for your emergency kit. The Shake Flashlight needs to batteries or a charger. Just grab it and give it a good shake. The light will run for five minutes and can be restarted by shaking it again. The really nice thing about this is that the flashlight looks like a flashlight and does not have the crank to turn like previous incarnations of emergency lights. You can also keep this light anywhere as there is no charger to mount. Get a couple of these for the cars and around the house.

The Shake Flashlight retails for $29.95 as item number DK009 from The Sharper Image.

1st in a series of the money controlling men who own the banks!!
The financial enigma resolved
A debt money system: by Louis Even
1. Shipwreck survivors

An explosion had blown their ship apart. Each one grasped the first bit of wreckage that came to hand, And when it was over there were five left, five huddled on a raft which the waves carried along at their will, As for the other victims of the disaster, there was no sign of them.

Hour after long hour their eyes searched the horizon. Would some passing ship sight them? Would their makeshift raft find its way to some friendly shore?

Suddenly a cry rang out: "Land! Look! Over there in the direction the waves are carrying us!" And as the vague silhouette proved itself to be, in fact, the outline of a shore, the figures on the raft danced with joy. They were five, five Canadians. There was Frank, the carpenter, big and energetic, It was he who had first cried, "Land!" then Paul, a farmer. You can see him on his knees, one hand against the floor, the other gripping the mast of the raft. Next Jim, an animal breeder; he's the one in the striped pants, kneeling and gazing in the direction of land. Then there is Harry, an agriculturist, a little on the stout side, seated on a trunk salvaged from the wreck. And finally Tom, a prospector and a mineralogist; he is the merry fellow standing in the rear with his hand on the carpenter's shoulder.

Subject: Fw: Fw: Plastic Wrap/microwave

University of California, Davis Medical Center 2315
Stockton Boulevard, Sacramento, California 95817
Jan, 2001

As a seventh grade student, Claire Nelson learnedthat di(ethylhexyl)adepate (DEHA), considered acarcinogen, is found in plastic wrap. She also learned that the FDA had never studied the effect of microwave cooking on plastic-wrapped food. Claire began to wonder: "Can cancer-causing particles seep into food covered with household plastic wrap while it is being microwaved?"

Three years later, with encouragement from her high school scienceteacher, Claire had an idea for studying the effect of microwave radiation on plastic-wrapped food, she did not have the equipment. Eventually, Jon Wilkes at the National Center for Toxicological Research in Jefferson, Arkansas, agreed to help her. The research center, which is affiliated with the FDA, let her use its facilities to perform her experiments, which involved microwaving plastic wrap in virgin olive oil. Claire tested four different plastic wraps and "found not just the carcinogens but also xenoestrogen was migrating [into the oil]...." Xenoestrogens are linked to low sperm counts in men and to breast cancer in women.

Throughout her junior and senior years, Claire made a couple of trips each week to the research center, which was 25 miles from her home, to work on her experiment. An article in Options reported that "her analysis found that DEHA was migrating into the oil at between 200 parts and 500 parts per million. The FDA standard is 0.05 parts per billion." Her summarized results have been published in science journals. Claire Nelson received the American Chemical Society's top science prize for students during her junior year and fourth place at the International Science and Engineering Fair (Fort Worth,Texas) as a senior.

"Carcinogens -- At 10,000,000 Times FDA Limits" Options May 2000. Published by People Against Cancer, 515-972-4444 On Channel 2 (Huntsville, AL) this morning they had Dr. Edward Fujimoto from Castle Hospital on the program. He is the manager of the Wellness Program at the hospital. He was talking about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the Microwave using plastic containers. This applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastics releases dioxins into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.Dioxins are carcinogens and highly toxic to the cells of our bodies. Instead, he recommends using glass, Corning Ware, or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results without the dioxins. So such things as TV dinners, instant saimin [?] and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. Just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He said we might remember when some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Pass this on to your friends....

To add to this: Saran wrap placed over foods as they are nuked, with the high heat, actually drips poisonous toxins into the food! Use a paper towel!!


GUYS: Cologne:
Unlike wine, men's cologne does not improve with age. It deteriorates. And it deteriorates more quickly in a warm place. So keep your cologne out of the sun and away from heat, such as the furnace register. And those colognes you seldom wear? Keep them in the refrigerator.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

GALS: Brain fitness
We're all aware of the need to keep our bodies fit, but what about our brains? One way to build our brainpower is to learn something new, whether it's a new art form, language, software program, or any other intellectual challenge. Dr. Donna LaVoie, director of the Memory and Aging Laboratory at St. Louis University, says that when we tax our brain to learn, it "triggers the brain to form new neurons in just two weeks if you do a little every day."
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

BEAUTY: Mascara & Summer
It's hot, sweaty and unbearably humid. How do you keep that mascara from going into a tragic meltdown? Look for the waterproof or smudgeproff items in your local store. Always start with clean lashes so that you won't have that goopy build-up, then utilize a good eyelash curler. You'll be surprised as to how well your waterproof mascara will hold-up under the stress of the summer heat.

Stuffed Flank Steak: Serves 4
This recipe can be used for any larger game animal. I have tried it with venison and elk and it is excellent.

  • 1 Large Flank Steak - Tenderized
  • 1-Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2-Cup Sliced Chives
  • 2 Tablespoon Minced Parsley
  • 1/2 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 4 Slices White Bread
  • 1/2-Cup Whole Milk
  • 2 Cups Finely Chopped Fresh Greens
  • 4 Tablespoon Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 6 Slices Bacon - Fried and Crumbled
  • 4-Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • Pepper and Thyme to Taste
Rub the steak with salt, pepper, and thyme. Place in a large dish or platter; add chives, parsley, and red wine vinegar. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, basting and turning a few times. Soak the bread in whole milk, drain and mash until smooth. Mix the bread with fresh greens, cheese, bacon, and nuts. Pull the steak out of the refrigerator and drain well. Spread the mixture on the steak and roll it up. Tie the roll with butchers twine. Heat the olive oil in a casserole dish. Lightly brown the roll, turning frequently so that all sides are browned. Cover the roll with boiling water and add a bay leaf. Cover and simmer for 3 hours, drain, chill, and slice thinly before serving.

Fresh beets, green salad, or corn on the cob, and hot rolls makes a complete meal fit for a king.
