Have we become de-sensitised

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged

Listening to the news once again, 7 more American soldiers died in Afghanistan.  Last week some Polish soldiers died as well as Italian soldiers.  I have to say there was a time when i felt for the soldiers who were being sent to the different countries - sent in by their governments.  Most signed up due to financial demands which is why i felt for them.  Others continued to have the arrogance of wanting to go in and democracise these countries - which we all know has never happened - in fact when they leave, they leave it in disarray - part of their strategy.

I now listen to the number of soldiers being killed and have to wonder whether this too is not just "collateral damage" as they would describe innocent people who are being killed.  A few more American deaths - big deal.  That is Americas as well as Britians legacy - war, death and destruction.

Watching a documentary called "the land speaks Arabic" which
documents the founding of the Zionist movement in Israel and the expulsion of Palestinians in the early part of the 20th century, i realised that the main aim of the Israeli soldiers is to "annihalate the Palestinians" (their own words).  when asked what they felt for the Palestinians, their answer was "we hate them".  It is strange how this Zionist country who cries "holocaust" every time they feel done in is in fact doing the same to the Palestinians.  The difference is that the killing of the Palestinians is being done under the noses of the international community - openly - and not even a flinch of condemnation by the west.  Rhetoric chit chat that bounces around despite the fact that the Gaza strip has now become a humanitarian disaster.  Just a few more Palestinians dead. Big deal.

We have become de-sensitised to this type of atrocity that is taking place every day.  We have become de-sensitised to the deaths of PEOPLE (lets not bother about who or where they are from).  Just people.  Somebodies mother, father, brother, sister, etc.  I have realised that nothing will change.  Media will continue to be selective about what they air for listeners consumption, governments will lie, wars will rage and innocents will die.  And we worry about the little crimes that take place in SA.  Big deal - just a few shootings, stabbings and hi-jackings.

Until we realise that we are being duped by the powers that be, acknowledge that what we hear and see is part of a bigger picture of lies and deception, things wont change.  Dont believe what you hear and see.  Find out what the truth is and once found, spread that.  Allowing media to control us, and de-sensitise us to what goes on around the world as well as locally, hearing the lies again and again and again, believing them and living them daily, we are as doomed as the rest of the "ignorant" countries that are no more.

What is Eid ul Fitr

Eid Mubarak (blessed Eid) will be the most used word around the world today, especially amongst the followers of Islam.  Today marks the end of a month of fasting (no eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset).  Muslims, worldwide will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr (or festival of breaking fast and giving of charity).

The month long fast prohibits Muslims from food, liquids, smoking, sex and any other "activity" that they would normally enjoy between sunrise and sunset.  It prompts more prayer, more charity and cleanses the soul, reminding them of their closeness to God and encourages them to be the best Muslim they can be.  The month long fast is a compulsory pillar of Islam.  The end of the fast comes when the full moon is sighted.  Normally the information comes from Cape Town when the Imams and clerics go up Table Mountain (above the clouds) and confirm the sighting of the moon, they make their final prayers on the mountain and then advise the communities.

For Eid ul-Fitr, families cleanse themselves in the morning, eat a small meal, and then attend prayer at a mosque. By tradition, celebrants offer alms to the mosque for distribution to the poor before the start of Eid prayers; these alms are known as Zakat ul-Fitr. After prayer and a sermon, the festivities of Eid ul-Fitr begin, with celebrants typically visiting each other in their finest clothes to exchange gifts and commemorate friendship. Eid is also a traditional time for forgiveness and reconciliations.

Since Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, feasting is an important part of this Muslim holiday. There are no universally traditional Eid foods, but the holiday typically includes rich foods which may not have been eaten during Ramadan, along with elaborate regional or family recipes. Invitations to parties and dinners are common during Eid ul-Fitr, and people often take the day off from work to spend time celebrating.

May all who are celebrating Eid have a wonderfully enjoyable day and for those who are not, should you have Muslim friends, the term you would greet them with is Eid Mubarak.

9/11 - Gvt urged to Re-open Investigation

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel
Today, being the anniversary of 9/11 and having the commemorations rammed down our throats (on TV all day), US government is being urged to re-investigate the events that took place 8 years ago. 


Loose Change
is a series of documentary films written and directed by Dylan Avery, and produced by Korey Rowe, Jason Bermas and Matthew Brown. The latest edition is narrated by Daniel Sunjata, and exclusively distributed by Microcinema International. The films argue that the September 11, 2001 attacks were planned and conducted by elements within the United States government, and base the claims on perceived anomalies in the historical record of the attacks. The first film, Loose Change, was originally released through the creators' own company, Louder Than Words, and received widespread attention after Loose Change 2nd Edition was featured on a Binghamton, New York local FOX affiliate, WICZ-TV (FOX 40).

The original film was edited and re-released as Loose Change: 2nd Edition, and then subsequently edited a third time for the 2nd Edition Recut, each time to tighten the focus on certain key areas and to correct some inaccurate claims and remove copyrighted material. Loose Change: Final Cut, deemed "the third and final release of this documentary series" was released on DVD and Web-streaming format on November 11, 2007. Despite the title, however, a new version of the film, Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup is scheduled to be released on September 22, 2009.

Journalists,researchers, as well as scientists and engineers have spoken out against the film's claims about the September 11 attacks.

Even if Loose Change is not 100% in every aspect, why are the US Government hesitant to re-open investigations.  3000 innocent people died which would amount to murder if there was foul play.  Wouldnt everybody want to know what actually happened.  Take the questions being posed, re-look at it and get the truth out.  Once invesitaged it can be put to bed.

Until then this time every year we will be reminded of what "terrorists" did.

My Samsung S8300

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged

Close window

I have just received the Samsung S8300 UltraTOUCH.  I am not really into phones but have to say it has amazing features.  Besides the slim, stunning look of it (12.7mm), it boasts so many other fancy features.  It has a 2.8" touchscreen (OLED)
with an 8 megapixel camera as well as a GPS receiver with Route 66 navigation.  It has an alphanumeric keypad for those who prefer to use this, but most features are touchscreen driven.  It has 80MB integrated memory with a 2GIG card supplied.  It came with the handsfree, earphones, extra battery, charger (which ones normally has to purchase).

I love the camera features : 8 megapixel auto focus camera with dual PowerLED flash, Face detection, Smile Shot, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and VGA video@30 fps - brilliant quality.  The screen also has an auto rotate screen which is fun.  Samsung takes over from the LG KF700 which was not that popular but apparently the Samsung has taken off since its launch.

Farm Town on Facebook - addictive

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel

OK i have finally become a farmer - true to the core.  On Facebook there is an application - in fact there are two - Farm Town and Farm Ville, both of which i am using.  I am not on Facebook that often but since finding these two ridiculous applications things have gone astray.

Both applications allow you to build a farm, earn points and money to build, buy, plough, buy seeds, sow them and then sell them for more money do to more things.  The amusing thing about Farm Town is that you have to go to the market to BEG for work (quite amusing - the more you beg the quicker you get selected) - this allows you to work on another persons farm and earn much more.  You can also tend to neighbours farms and earn.  On Farm Ville, if you dont get to your crops soon enough, they die and you lose that money you could have earned, so there is this race against time to get in, check your crops, plough, harvest and sit back again - although with two farms this isnt possible.

I have to say my social life is now dead.  I am out farming - ploughing and harvesting.  Go check it out and become addicted.  Maybe we will become neighbours

Is Christianity becoming exploited

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel
Some of you have read my blogs regarding the Christian healers.  I have to ask whether Christianity is becoming exploited by these hustlers.  What happened to the good old days when preaching did the trick.  Got people to do right with each other, kept those on the straight path and gave man hope.  Did you know the following :

a)  If you walk through anointed water, you can be cured of AIDS and cancer
b)  If you put an anointed cloth over an area where you used to have a limb, it
     will grow back
c)  If you buy anointed oil, you have then sowed your seed and only then will
     your prayers be answered
d)  If you sow your seed (pay money into an account), you can receive healing
     through the television - but only once you have sown your seed.  No seed, no
     heal

All of this is done in the name of Jesus Christ (pbuh).  Does one honestly believe that a prophet, as I believe he was, or God as Christians believe he is, will demand money first before healing and then heal "through" a so called pastor or preacher who can barely read his own Bible to the congregation.  If any healing was to be done, it would happen straight from God.  Without payment, without conditions.

I think this is what Christians fail to see and they are now allowing these money grabbers to dictate what they will get and for how much.  Can religion be so exploited?

My Morning of Incompetencies

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel
I dont want to bog anybody down with my issues, but being unemployed means one has to get their ducks in a row and make sure things work.  Having said this though, we are surrounded by incompetent people, so many in fact, it makes me wonder how the country is actually running to the capacity it is.

First off i downgraded Discovery Medical Aid from the top scheme to the lowest scheme (hospital plan) as at 1 June.  From 1 June to date, i have been on the phone sorting out the fact that they did not put the new details on the system despite my having paid the first payment on 31 May (they even calculated the new amount and told me i had to pay otherwise i would not be covered) as well as emailing the application downgrade for processing on 27th - they then tried to withdraw nearly R7000 because my "subscriptions werent up to date" only to find out they had not loaded the new info, they then still had a further R380 deducted for vitality, which i had told them to do away with from 1 June and which they had told me i was now off of based on the application and the final straw was when they deposited a claim into the account that i had told them not to deposit into despite having filled the form changing this.  The amount was for about R12 000 and because of this oversight on their part, bank charges and other admin charges have come off which has left me with R9 000 (R3 000 short of what the claim should have been) - now i am busy demanding all of this money back due their incompetencies.

Next problem was Telkom.  We changed from having a 3 gig facility on ADSL to 5 gigs.  This was all done telephonically on 31 July only to be told today that i have to pay nearly R1000 because they had forgotten to change this.  Now i have 5 gigs plus the extra 3 gigs.  At least 2 hours was spent on the line this morning trying to resolve this.

Finally it was the Government Printers.  I have not only dropped off Banking details application forms in Pretoria, but i have faxed and emailed the same documents three times each because they have not found them.  This morning they call to say they cant pay out because they still dont have the documents.

Now i have to ask - how much incompetency can we stand. I am at the point where i follow every single thing up and receive confirmation notification of everything i do.  If this is not done i will be spending unnecessary hours, of my own time, resolving something that should have been sorted out by competent people.  And i am the one who is unemployed - Ironic isnt it.

An apology from National Geographic on 9/11?

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel
I have never believed that 9/11 was an Arab/Muslim/Al Qaeeda initiated so called "terrorist attack".  There has been so much evidence to prove otherwise.  Yes - it obviously happened because we watched it on television.  And about 3000 innocent people died.  What did frustrate me was how quickly the media latched onto theories and possibilities of how it unfolded - they never gave it time in order to "find the truth". 

National Geographic was one of them, publishing one of the first articles on the so called "pancake theory" based on how and why the building fell straight down.  I was reading an interesting article and thought i would share it - who knows - maybe someobody will see the wit and sarcasm in the article (they say many true word said in jest dont they).  Maybe National Geographic WILL apologise for writing such nonsense as is happening more and more often.

Current Swine Flu Spreads rapidly in SA

Posted by guardian angel in Untagged 

guardian angel
As of 4 August there was a confirmed number of 600 swine flu cases according to the Health Department, mainly contained in Gauteng and Western Cape.  This is a large number of people, considering that it spreads rapidly if an infected person is exposed to the public and providing they even know that they have it.  I also have not seen anything in terms of media, highlighting symptoms and warning the public of when to get somebody to a doctor without them becoming paranoid each time somebody gets the flu or a simple cold.  I was reading an interesting article that came out that i thought i would share :

http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=125&art_id=vn20090806033128235C166424

I think we have to start taking this a lot more seriously - without stressing.  I believe the numbers as of today have risen to 800 but i cannot confirm this.

take precautions and we can prevent the worst from happening to our loved ones (friends and family)

PS    AbortRetryFail heard on SABC3 tonight (11/8) that the numbers had risen to 1300 nationally (thanks for that information).  Felt  i needed to mention that in the light of the blog so that can get the message loud and clear.  Take precautions
