While eating breakfast I cruise the Internet for news ‘o the day. And I visit my favorites to see what tasty morsels they offer.
www.StubbleJumpingRedNeck.com has a very sobering review of Islamic Crusades. It is available on YouTube in seven parts plus introduction, all of which are linked here:
Jimmy B., you could tell me that Mr. Cohen (curse his memory!) taught some of this stuff in high school and I wouldn’t argue with you – you know what kind of mutt I was then, and how interested in history at the time. Jock yes, mostly A student yes, interest in Mr. C’s teaching? – C minus at best.
Watching the above videos was very worthwhile for me. Ancient to modern history is briefly reviewed, from the perspective of Islamic Jihad. One very sobering fact was presented regarding the Mughal Empire’s domination of the Hindu’s of the Indian subcontinent. The claim is that the Mughal Empire was responsible for the deaths of 80 MILLION Hindus over the 350 years of occupation! That’s more than Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Sadam (plus whatever other wackjobs you can list) total!
All in all, a very intense hour of distilled history.
Don’t know who the presenter is……
A few cartoons a week later –
Meg Whitman is said to have spent over $140 million OF HER OWN MONEY! on her election run against Jerry Brown –
California AGAIN defeated the legalization of marijuana (prop. 19) –

post script: Gmail is awesome! I don’t have to manage the “Sent”, “Inbox”, or “Trash” folders – there is so much storage that it is simply unnecessary – unlike TELUS. That allows me to find the links and pictures I’ve inserted in previous rantings at will. This is as close to a journal I’ll ever write……
