"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this Land, it will be in the Guise of Fighting a Foreign Enemy." -- James Madison

From smith2004:

"A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that." -- Alan Ladd to Jean Arthur in the movie Shane, 1953

From lrtdiscuss:

"It may soon be time to say: 'I plead the second.'; are you ready?" -- Leonidas

# David Codrea - Open Letter to "Rabbi" Eric H. Yoffie, President, Union of American Hebrew Congregations - Mr. Codrea gives it, and good, to a Rabbi who preaches gun control in the same breath as "never again". What an idiot. I have only one argument with this essay. The First Million Mom March was made possible not only by taking away the guns of the victims, but by programming them to follow authority. The tyrant's own guns are easily turned back on him by a person who refuses to be a victim. That doesn't mean that you should allow him to take your guns in the first place. Not at all. If anyone attempts to do that, kill him, no matter which fancy uniform, funny hat, or shiny badge he happens to be wearing. [codrea]

# Evelyn Pringle at Sierra Times - David Ayoub MD - Thirmerosal Definite Cause Of Autsim - Ms. Pringle writes that Dr. Ayoub believes that mercury in vaccines causes mass autism in children. [sierra]

Ayoub was asked why government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, are working so hard to keep the truth about the mercury-autism link hidden. He says it is a long story, but the main reason is because if they admitted guilt, it would mean the government agencies, drug companies and medical organizations, "have taken part in the largest iatrogenic epidemic known to man."

The fallout over admission of causality would be unprecedented, Ayoub adds. The lost confidence in American medicine would likely cause people to turn to alternative methods of medicine, and a rise in deeper investigation might reveal the truth about other suppressions related to cancer therapy, hypertension Rx, or Atherosclerosis.

# Michael Gaddy at LewRockwell.com - A Breeding Ground For Tyrants - on the illegal, immoral, massacre being carried out every day in Iraq, compliments of your fascist government. [sierra]

The irritating sound of a ringing phone brought me roughly back to reality. I had been lost in the serenity of the snow-covered peaks of the La Plata and San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. At first, there was no immediate response to my hello. I thought it a call from a telemarketer, but after the pause, was delighted to hear the voice of a damn good soldier I have known for over two decades, who is on his second tour in Iraq. His response to my question of what was going on over there now, still assaults my conscience: "Well, this morning our unit went out and shot up a bunch of civilians and our commander is writing it up as a great military victory."


This nation, its political leadership and the vast majority of its religious leaders, have thrown away their moral compass and replaced it with a rabid nationalism unseen on the world stage since Germany in the 1930s. Torture and murder of hundreds of thousands are readily accepted, as long as it is done for the graven image called the State. Eventually, unless we take a different path, the number of those tortured and murdered will include those in this country who refuse to submit to the State as it pursues its "mission from God." The venom readily spews forth from the shills for the State now, building a hate and resentment in the masses for any who would challenge the official position of perpetual war for peace.

Since our nation and its civilian leaders have lost their ability to judge right from wrong, why should we expect anything different from our military?

# I learned yesterday about Java 5's Annotations and how they're being used by JBoss 4's Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) 3.0 implementation and by Hibernate 3. The bottom line appears to be that XDoclet is no longer necessary for the EJB work I'm doing. Nice in the long run, but annoying right now since I spent lots of time learning to use XDoclet with EJBs. Normally I wouldn't work with alpha software, but the project I'm working on won't ship for at least a year, and by then EJB 3.0 should be the standard. From the JBoss EJB 3.0 page:

EJB 3.0 is a deep overhaul of the old EJB specification. Its goals are to simplify development, facilitate test driven development, and focus more on plain java objects (POJOs) rather than on complex APIs. The introduction of annotations into JDK 5.0 allowed the EJB 3.0 specification to completely remove dependencies on XML deployment descriptors, the biggest bane to EJB developers. This EJB 3.0 Preview Release is almost a complete implementaiton of the specification. We'll be releasing new versions about every 6 weeks until the final draft of the specification.
