I can honestly say that the Olympics have truly lost their meaning.  About 3000 years ago, at a time when Greece was just a loose collection of city-states, a series of athletic games were held in Athens every four years.  One of the reasons for the games was temporarily bring together all Greeks and display their best athletes for pride.  Today, the Olympics are not about national pride.  We have athletes that have been caught using performance-enhancing drugs, competitors that fight over medals, in court, like little children that argue over candy, fixed judging, and corruption within the International Olympic Committee.  In the late sixties, athletes from East Germany were discovered to be using steroids.  The Soviet Union and many of the Eastern Bloc countries were entering professional athletes, despite the fact that the Olympics were solely for amateur competition.  In 1972, the Olympics in Munich became the site of the most controversial incident in Olympic history when the United States men’s basketball team was clearly cheated out of the gold-medal in the final game against the Soviet Union.  Of course you have some of the sites such Salt Lake City and Nagano which were found to have been chosen for the Winter Olympics, but bribery and corruption were involved in their selection.  As far as I am concerned, the Olympics are nothing more than a political game.  I feel the only place they should be held is in Athens.  I also feel they should get rid of all events that involve judging.  Those are events where you win based on somebody’s opinion and there is no real fair way to do that.  The other events are determined by who can jump the highest, run and swim the fastest, throw the farthest, and lift the most.

It is true that Stalin did have considerable influence as a leader, but his track record leaves much to be desired.  The only two things Stalin cared about was control and power.  I do find it frustrating that so much attention is placed on the number of people that Hitler killed.  Joseph Stalin killed almost 40 million people.  It is almost seven times the number of dead by Hitler. Mao –Tse-Tung  killed almost as many as Stalin.  Many people think that the United States and Russia were friends during World War II.  We were nothing more than military allies.  In fact, Stalin had no intention of stopping his invasion of Europe, even after Hitler had been defeated.  He would have gone all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.  In a sense he is influential, but he truly was an example of a human incarnation of pure evil.

I must say that there are a few people in the world that had the determination to reach the people of the world and admiration for all.  He was one the few who saw every individual as a person.  He  truly attempted to bring everyone together as the human race.  He also had a unique way of interacting and communicating to the younger generation.  He had a respect for people of all races, nationalities, and religions.  He made a milestone in recent history when he traveled to Cuba and personally met with Fidel Castro.  It is also interesting that he attracted just as many people who were not Catholic.  He won the hearts of many people in this world.

Sadat was truly a man of honor and prestige.  He saw the need to establish peace in the Middle East.  He realized that violence was not a solution and he truly attempted to make an effort in upholding the Camp David Accords.  He deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.  That is more than what I can say for the other member of the agreement. Menachem Begin is nothing more than a butcher.  It is well established that he was a terrorist.  He was responsible for the bombing and destruction of a large apartment complex filled with Palestinian civilians.  The Camp David Accords were no more than 24 hours old when Menachem Begin backed out on them by refusing to remove certain Jewish settlements that were supposed to have been moved as part of the accords.  The fact that he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize is a disgrace.  In fact, one of the Nobel Prize committee members, at the time, resigned his position because of this decision. I respect only Sadat.  He tried to make the peace accords work.

You will find that in many cases, many successful leaders do not have much education, as compared to others.  Harry Truman is an example of that.  He is one of the presidents that did not attend any college.  He also had a very hard-core attitude when it came to making big decisions.  When he had a confrontation with Douglas MacArthur, Truman was not afraid to relieve him of command.  It was a wise decision considering that MacArthur was a power-hungry, loose cannon. When the US, Britain, and France were helping Western Europe rebuild, the Soviet Union did everything it could to drive out the Allies so it could continue its conquest of Europe, despite the fact that Hitler had been defeated. The Red Army would have kept on going until they reached the beaches of Portugal.  Truman made it very clear to his advisers and committee that we are staying in Europe to help rebuild.  He was, in no way, intimidated by Joseph Stalin. He was not afraid to order the deployment of the atomic bomb.  He was determined to end the war, rather than have it drag on for months at a cost of millions of lives.  I have heard people criticize him for this decision, claiming it was a crime against humanity.  What about the crimes and atrocities that the Japanese committed?  What about the Bataan death march, the railway of death, the treatment of civilians and POWs under their rule, the medical experiments they conducted at Unit 731, the rape of Nanking, and the rest of their atrocities? The Japanese have never admitted or attempted to atone for these crimes.  They are trying to rewrite their history to cover it up.  I think no one has the right to call Harry Truman a war criminal.

I do not see where he was a great president.  First of all, he was not in office long enough to really have any major political significance.  Second, it has well been suspected that his election was fixed because several ballot boxes in Chicago mysteriously disappeared.  The Kennedy family is perhaps one of the most corrupt families in the nation.  The only reason he is looked upon as a hero is because he was assassinated.  I think he was a failure from the beginning.

One thing I cannot figure out is that the Shah, who was undeniably brutal, was no different than Khomeini when it came to human rights.  Despite this fact, the people of Iran nearly worshiped Khomeini.  The strange thing is, despite his brutality, the Shah began to modernize the technology within Iran.  When Khomeini seized power, he ordered a very literal interpretation of the Qur’an. He decreed that all non-Muslims are evil infidels and should be killed. He wanted to restore old-fashioned traditions and that caused the country to return to the Stone Ages.  The reason the United States and the Shah had diplomatic relations was because he allowed the United States to establish communication listening posts along the border of the Soviet Union. My opinion is when those radicals invaded the US Embassy and took the people hostage, we should have given Khomeini an ultimatum.  If he did not release all of the hostages unharmed in 24 hours, we blow the hell out of Iran and turn it into a crater.  Unfortunately, Jimmy Carter was a wimpy President.

I do not see where it can be classified as birth control.  Whether the liberal community wants to admit it or not, that life that grows in the mother’s womb is alive and it is a growing human being.  These mothers that go and do this should have thought about what they were doing when their baby was conceived.  I cannot begin to imagine what that unborn child feels during the procedure.  When I see ultrasound pictures of a growing human being, it makes me wonder how someone could make such a horrible decision.  There is a form of birth control that is effective and universally safe.  It is the word “NO.”

I have a real interest in the teaching of Buddhism.  It is truly a peaceful way of life.  Many of the principles that Buddhists follow are very similar to Christianity.  The only part about Buddhism that is hard for me to see is its classification as a religion.  The difference with Buddhism compared to other religions is the fact that Buddhism does not necessarily have a conception or perspective of a supreme, omnipotent being such as God.  In Buddhism, Buddha is not actually viewed or revered as”God.” Siddhartha Gautama, often seen as the first “Buddha,” is revered as “the enlightened one.”  This is not necessarily mean he is a god.  Nonetheless, I think Buddhism is a remarkable philosophy and way of life.  It lays out a very noble way to live with your neighbors and yourself.

As I mentioned before, I am a Christian, yet I maintain a deep respect and interest for all religions.  One thing I do not have any acceptance or tolerance for is religious violence.  Anyone who uses their religion to justify violence towards others is corrupting it.  This applies to all religion.  I never looked upon Islam as a violent or evil religion.  It has been given a negative reputation by the acts of radicals and extremists.  I took the time to read the entire Qur’an.  I found it very interesting.  According to the way I interpreted most of the teachings, much of the text describes the importance of acquiring knowledge and learning.  It also describes how Muslims must work to peacefully coexist with their neighbors.  It also describes how they must help the poor, sick, the needy, and anyone else who is less fortunate.  Nowhere did it say that this charity action is restricted to only Muslims.  I found very few mentions of the word “jihad.”  The glossary said that this means “struggle.”  According to my interpretation of the script, most of the”struggle” involves a person trying to live their lives according to God.  It does not say that all Muslims must fight a “jihad” against America and the West. Many of these extremists only take the passages that speak of using violence to protect their families and homes and they twist the meanings to justify their actions.  This, of course, can happen with any religious scripture. It does disturb me that some leaders in the Muslim world not only condone religious violence, but they endorse it.  When I find ironic, for example, is when the Shah was forced to flee Iran, the Iranians demanded that he be turned over to answer for his crimes.  To emphasize the demand, the US Embassy was invaded.  On the other hand, when Idi Amin was forced to flee Uganda, some leaders gave him sanctuary because he supposedly rediscovered Islam.  Libya, Saudi Arabia, and Iran offered him protection, despite the fact he was responsible for the deaths of almost one million Ugandan civilians.  He lived the rest of his life free in Saudi Arabia.  Something like that really would upset me about religion.  As I said, I do not believe Islam is violent, but I think some of their leaders need to set a much better example to prove this to the world.

Social networking is very interesting and I like getting to know people whom I would have never met if it we not for the Internet.  It is helpful in learning about different cultures and habits in other parts of the world, as well as other states here in the U.S.  I belong to several and enjoy it very much.

Obama , Weblo , Bizpreneur
 
Friendfinder , Adultfriendfinder , GradFinder

These are just to name a few, they are fun and friendly!

Jennifer Lopez has always incorporated her sense of style into every aspect of her life. In 2001, Jennifer fulfilled one of her greatest fantasies when she launched her signature collection of sportswear, JLO by Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer Lopez started the trend of celebrity fashion brands and has made her sense of style and fashion available to women throughout the world.

There is never a choice based on a particular stand point not especially if its bases are tied to ultimate desires of ones wishes.

I love feeling safe in America, but do I have to give up more or my freedoms to have that warm cozy feeling? It is just a feeling, if they wanted us we are certainly vulnerable. Really, do you feel protected?
