We have been hearing on the news how a Reverend Jones in Florida is planning to burn copies of the Koran on the 9-ll anniversary. He says he is doing God’s will. The reason behind the 9-11 attacks was to goad the United States into an action that would unite the Arab World by overthrowing moderate Arab governments and forming a world Arab union or Caliphate. This is the dream of the ultraconsservative Moslems. The Caliphate is defined as A unified federal Islamic government for the Muslim world, ruled by an elected head of state or caliph.

What Rev. Jones is doing is exactly the form of action that these fanatics would celebrate because it helps their cause. It would be more  fuel for the fire storm they wish to create.

 

I would say to Rev. Jones: ‘Play the fool. You do it so well’.

 

(The local fire marshall has plans to put out any public fires which should be interesting!).

Earl has blown away up the coast leaving two feet of water in Hatteras Village, which is normal for them. They get that every two or three years. WRAL had Renee Chou on the Outer Banks reporting. That little lady would have to carry a rock around to keep from being blown away.

 

Happiness for me is finally having your OUTLOOK working again after locking up for the last two weeks. I in stalled an ACT software program and it caused the problems.

 

Enjoy your weekend,

Earl is a monster hurricane headed toward our coast, blowing 145 mph. If the center gets anywhere near the outer banks, one can kiss Corolla goodbye. These are three story, six bedroom houses that are stacked up like wedding cakes, nice homes but they closed them in underneath which is a big design flaw if there is overwash. The water cannot flow through and underneath the house so instead it knocks it down.

Ever wonder what the marketing people with cereal are thinking? I do! They create these cute little characters like the Min-Wheats cereal, that talk, sing, and cheer the kids on to school. Then they expect kids to eat the cereal like they were canibals or some such. After they bond with their cereall, kids are expected to chow down on them. I am assuming the ads like most ads are aimed at the children, not the parents. It just does not compute.

 

Enjoy your day,

We are coming to the end of things with the ‘clear’ nonethanol gasoline. Marathon and all companies with product at Kinder Morgan #1 will no longer have pure gasoline after October 1st of this year. That will leave only one terminal with the ‘clear’ or pure gasoline available at Selma and that is temporary. Given the situation, we would rather change now before forced to depend on one terminal and plan on a gradual changeover between now and then. What we will do is send one of our team members around to check your gas tank for water and sediment which we will pump out and remove. We will place a filter on your pump, if it does not already have one, to catch any sediment or water that might be left. Any water or sediment in your vehicle’s fuel system will be cleaned out by the ethanol, which is an effective solvent. Be prepared to change your fuel filters if necessary. Once we have cleaned all of the tanks, then we will change all customers together and begin pricing and delivering E10. All service stations and all brands in this area have made this change. If you have bought gasoline at a service station then you have already used E10.

 

Best regards,

Good Monday morning,

 

I was out walking early this morning, a cool mist was rising up through the trees and around the street lights which winked out one by one. I am ready to say goodbye to August and the heat. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready to face another exciting week.

Gasoline is up again by 5.5 cents. I made a mistake Friday in my gasoline and I copied the low gasoline price, not the average. I shall try harder. Diesel prices are up 3.4 cents. Prices are:

I was watching the history channel this morning. A doceumentary was playing on the air war in WWII. I wanted to see how it ended but I had to leave to come to work. The Japanese were winning when I left home.

 

I remember when  I heard about 9-11, I knew immediately that I had heard something like it before. Tom Clancy wrote a book published in 1994 entiled Debt Of Honor,( I attached a summary above, just read the last paragraph) in which  Japanese man in order to exact revenge for the defeat of his country in WWII, kamikazi-like he flies a Boeing 747 into the Capital Building during the State Of the Union Address, thereby decapitating the government of the USA. As I sit here, I can bet that in all probability a Saudhi intellectual, educated in the West, read that book and that is where the idea for 9-11 came from. Thank you Tom Clancy.

If you read Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, he explains how Saudhi money was being used to found fundamentalist Moslem convservative schools all over Pakistan and these schools were the source of the Taliban.

Another book America’s Secret War by George Friedman (of the Stratfor think tank) in which the author proclaims that Saudhi Arabia was the source of 9-11 and was sponsoring terrorism through charities (which sponsored the schools in Pakistan and terrorist camsp). Friedman writes that President Bush could not invade Saudhi Arabia as it is the center of the most holy cities of the Moslem faith and this would unite the Moslem world into the what the Jihadist of 9-11 wanted was a United Moslem country. They were counting on the reacations of the US to unite the Moslem world which would rise up and eventually take over the world. It did not happen. The Bush Administration invaded Iraq to pressure Saudhi Arabia to reign in these conservative elements. Sodamn was a bad person, but it never was about Iraq. Bush Admin. could not tell the American people the truth because they could not sell it.

 

I find this logic hard to follow but it does seem to be the truth. The other option was to attack Afghanistan and stop there.

My solution is to use ocean generators to creat cheap electricity, use the excess electrcity to free hydrogen from water to fuel our cars/trucks and we keep our money in the US and we bankrupt Saudhi Arabia, Russia, Iran and Venezuela. We get the last laugh.

 

Enjoy your weekend,
