Police State, USA

I saw this story on the local news this evening.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Fort Worth police to require blood samples if drivers refuse Breathalyzer

09:31 PM CST on Friday, December 28, 2007
By WENDY HUNDLEY / The Dallas Morning News

Fort Worth motorists who refuse alcohol breath tests will be required to give blood samples to determine whether they've been driving while intoxicated.

The mandatory "no refusal" initiative will be in effect over the New Year's holiday.

If a driver refuses to give a blood sample, police will obtain a search warrant requiring compliance.

"We're going to get our evidence one way or another," Fort Worth Police Chief Ralph Mendoza said.

DWI arrests have increased 40 percent over the last year, and fatal auto accidents in Fort Worth also continue to rise, he said.

In 2006, 77 people lost their lives in car crashes, up from 56 in 2003, according to Fort Worth police.

If the holiday initiative is successful, the "no refusal" program may become a permanent part of the Police Department's efforts to combat drunken driving, Chief Mendoza said.

The temporary testing program will be in effect from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

Richard Alpert, an assistant Tarrant County district attorney, said courts have upheld law enforcement's right to use search warrants to obtain evidence of blood alcohol levels, and the "no refusal" policy has been used successfully in other Texas counties.

"This is the future of DWI enforcement, in my opinion," Mr. Alpert said.

The Fort Worth initiative is patterned after "no refusal" programs in Houston, El Paso and Dalworthington Gardens, which started mandatory blood testing 2 ½ years ago.

Since then, 13 of Dalworthington Gardens' 30 police officers and volunteers have been trained to draw blood specimens.

The evidence obtained from this evidence has resulted in convictions in every case, Dalworthington Gardens Police Chief Bill Waybourn said.

He believes the effort is changing people's attitudes toward drinking and driving.

"Last year on New Year's Eve, we arrested no one for DWI," he said.

Because Fort Worth officers are not yet trained as blood technicians, three of Dalworthington Gardens' trained officers will be working with the Fort Worth police during the holiday weekend.

They'll be the ones drawing blood from DWI suspects.

A magistrate will be on hand to sign search warrants for the blood evidence, if needed.

For officers working the hectic holiday weekend, the new technique might make things run a little smoother.

Lt. Dean Sullivan, a Fort Worth police spokesman, said it takes five minutes to draw blood as opposed to 25 minutes to run a breath test.

"There have been nights we've had them lining up at the door," he said.

"And one of those nights is New Year's Eve."

Let me see if I get this straight. You are within your rights to refuse to take a breath test, but if you do, you will be arrested, then you will be restrained so that a "trained?!" police officer, not medical personnel, can jab a needle into your vein and draw blood from your body. You have no right to refuse this invasion of your body.


Blood-taking is an intrusive medical procedure. I worked as a phlebotomist at a hospital. That's all I did - get blood samples from patients. There is NO training that will make you competent. It is only experience that gives one the ability to find a good vein and get the specimen in one needle stick, inflicting the least pain possible.

There is no way these "trained" police officers will have that experience - ever. They will mangle most people they get their jack-booted hands on. Trust me. Unless a person has huge, popping-out veins, it can be very difficult to find a viable vein.

Lt. Dean Sullivan, a Fort Worth police spokesman, said it takes five minutes to draw blood as opposed to 25 minutes to run a breath test.

Fuck you, Sullivan. Who cares how long it takes to draw blood? It takes only a split second to taser someone. So, that's your criteria for the appropriateness of a procedure - how convenient it is - for you. That you would say this tells me you have zero regard for the rights of people, and are only attempting to keep the sheep from panicking at what you intend to inflict on them. You may just as well have said, "Lay back and enjoy it."

And it does not take just five minutes. I was one of the best phlebotomists and under the best of circumstances it took me five minutes to get the blood specimen. I was very gentle, with the utmost regard for the apprehension, if not outright fear, that most people experience when having their blood drawn.

The assured incompetence of these brutes and conditions under which citizens will have their blood forced from their bodies amounts to no less than torture. The Fort Worth Polizei veel get zer eenformation! This is exactly what the police chief said, in no uncertain terms.

Just how the hell does any police department have the power to make and enforce this outrageous policy? Oh, yeah, the courts have upheld this violation of rights. I see. All is well then. Did you notice that in neither the news clip nor the newspaper article there was the slightest questioning of this policy? Bloody hell. Just bloody hell.

Of course, it doesn't stop here, it never does. The unquestioning submissiveness of the population gives rise to even more control and more loss of freedoms and rights. It is truly alarming how quickly we are being subjugated.

Oh, and you can thank the numerous drunk-driving illegal Mexicans for helping to bring about this newest police state action. Illegals are a double bonus for the power elite - cheap, ignorant labor and their lawlessness/irresponsibility provides more excuses to impose more controls on the masses. Is it any wonder that nothing is being done about this exponentially-increasing problem?

Actually, illegal Mexicans are a triple bonus. While they are ignorant and lawless, they are not going to fight for freedom and rights - unless it's for their right to break the law to stay here. They will line up, bend over, stand on their heads, do whatever they're told - as long as they can eat their tacos, drink beer and impregnate their women. In other words, the power elite have absolutely nothing to fear from these throngs of third world peons. They are used to being harassed and mistreated by the authorities. They don't question authority, they evade it - as much as possible - until it finally rams its baton up their ass, then they accept it and submit. Yes, I imagine they wait in line to have their blood drawn without so much as a peep.

For every loss of freedom and rights from one group, there is another group gaining power and control. That's the equation and the vast majority of us are on the losing side of it. This means that a small minority will eventually have tremendous power and control. That's tyranny, people.

Is this not a cozy scene?
Update: As I suspected, using police to draw blood is in clear violation of an already outrageous law. But they say their 20-hour training course meets the standard specified in the code. In other words, they can do whatever they want, then just say it's legal and that makes it legal. This is how it goes now. The law only exists to control the people, not the authorities. Got it? Good.

And yet another glaring sign flashes before us: Third World Alert!

Here is the section of the Texas code:

§ 724.017. BLOOD SPECIMEN. (a) Only a physician, qualified technician, chemist, registered professional nurse, or licensed vocational nurse may take a blood specimen at the request or order of a peace officer under this chapter. The blood specimen must be taken in a sanitary place.
(b) The person who takes the blood specimen under this chapter, or the hospital where the blood specimen is taken, is not liable for damages arising from the request or order of the peace officer to take the blood specimen as provided by this chapter if the blood specimen was taken according to recognized medical procedures. This subsection does not relieve a person from liability for negligence in the taking of a blood specimen.
(c) In this section, "qualified technician" does not include emergency medical services personnel.

And here's how they do it in El Paso. From

Texas: Forced DUI Blood Draws Expand

More Texas jurisdictions are turning to forced blood draws to convict those suspected of DUI.

Jurisdictions within Texas are expanding programs where police use force to draw blood from motorists accused of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). Last week, El Paso announced it had joined Harris and Wilson Counties in a "no refusal" program specifically designed to streamline the blood drawing process.

It works as follows. An accused motorist is arrested and taken downtown. While being videotaped, he will be asked to submit to a breathalyzer test with officers specifically avoiding any mention that blood will be taken by force if the often inaccurate breathalyzer test is refused.

During key holiday weekends, a pre-assigned judge who agreed to wait by the phone will approve search warrants created from pre-written templates -- often within just thirty minutes. With warrant in hand, a nurse whose salary is often paid by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) will draw blood while police officers exert the required level of force. In some cases, this use of force can cause permanent damage. Montague, Archer and Clay counties have similar programs except that these departments do away with the nurse and have police officers perform the blood draw themselves, despite a state law banning the practice (view law).

Two of the twelve motorists subjected to the first blood draws in Harris County on Memorial Day weekend this year were later found to have blood alcohol levels below the .08 limit. The program will return on New Year's Eve.

Ah yes, didn't you just know that MADD would have something to do with this. Nanny State, Police State - same thing - tyranny.

Christmas Is Coming

[I may be just talking to myself here as it's been so long since I've posted anything that most likely everyone has rightly given up on me. Oh well, here goes anyway.]

Hello all. I've been around, but not commenting or posting - much too busy and dumbfounded from fending off the onslaught of real life. But, I got a sudden rush of Christmas cheer (no, I'm not drinking eggnog) so I decided to take advantage of it before I revert back into the general Scrooginess that is me these days.

I started my blog at this time last year, embedding some Christmas songs, so I'll do it again. Listening to Christmas songs makes me feel Christmassy and going through some of these on youtube did the trick.

In grade school I was in the Glee Club, as the official piano player. Now, mind you, this is only because the nun, who was in charge of it, begged me to join them as she had nobody else who could play the piano - at least anything beyond chopsticks. Performing is not my thing. It was only during this stint that I have ever performed publicly.

My biggest public performance was when our little Glee Club sang Christmas carols in the lobby of the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas. I was supposed to only play the piano, not sing, but I always did anyway. Well - I had and still have a very good singing voice. If I had to do that today I'd probably have to first put a few shots of vodka in me.

Oh... that reminds me... there was another brief encounter with the public. And it was also at a swank hotel, and there was Scotch involved, and I eyed a beautiful grand piano sitting all alone, and I sauntered over to it, sat down... and before I knew it, was playing through my repertoire of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, etal, for what, to my surprise, appeared to be a very appreciative crowd. I had to have been rather inebriated to do that and just plain out of my mind. My companion was agog as he had no idea that I even played the piano at all. Yes, it was a night to remember, even if it is a bit fuzzy... In conclusion, it appears that I would have to turn into a raging alcoholic to become any kind of performer.

Anyway, here's a beautiful one, sung by one of the beautiful voices of times past. It just occurred to me - how many glorious voices we will never have a chance to hear because the technology did not exist to record them for posterity.

I loved singing this one at Mass. It has a certain Gregorian chant, mystic harmonic to it. The visuals in this video are pretty nice too.

Here's wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.

Update: WaterBoy mentioned Tchaikovsky and it got me thinking about the traditional holiday ballet "The Nutcracker". I found an entertaining two-part video of this classic (about 9 minutes each) performed by the very talented Berliner Philharmoniker musicians with the great Seiji Ozawa conducting. Symphony conductors are kinda loony, but likeable characters. As you will see - Maestro Ozawa is no exception to this rule.

Without further adieu, I present a wonderful performance of Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky's enchanting The Nutcracker Suite. Civilization at its best.

Devil In The Details

Busy, busy, I've been of late. No time to say hello or goodbye. Not much to write about either.

Over the course of several days, I detailed my car. Menial, manual labor is not my thang, so I tend to procrastinate these kinds of tasks and also because I know what I'm in for. Once I do get started, lookout, I become obsessed. Nothing else in the universe exists.

Prepared with a big square container filled with sundry cleaning supplies like leather cleaner, leather conditioner, vinyl cleaner, glass cleaner, carpet cleaner, a roll of paper towels, soft cloths, sponges, q-tips, toothpicks, a knife, tweezers, etc., I tackled the job. And what a job. There are zillions of surfaces, nooks, crannies, knobs, buttons, ridges, crevices, vents, covers, that comprise the interior of a car - areas that we never focus our attention on - until they need their dirty little faces cleaned.

First, I removed all the floor carpets and the entire trunk carpet for a good washing. And I know how to wash carpets. I learned from a Persian. They really know and love their rugs. So do I. Authentic, antique Persian rugs are one of the few unnecessary inanimate objects that I will covet. They are magnificent, intricate, painstaking works of art - that you walk on... I would, without hesitation, pay outrageous sums of money for them, lots of them - if said outrageous sums were at my disposal, that is. Anyway, I laid the carpets out on the grass and proceeded to work them over with detergent and the hose.

While the carpets were hung up and drying, I went after the trunk, spending about two hours on it. And you know, from the initial impression, it was not dirty, but when I zoomed in on each and every square millimeter, well, it took me two bloody hours.

It was getting too dark, so I quit at that.

On day two of the cleaning saga, the interior was my target. I can recall neighbors passing by, smiling and waving, on their morning stroll. I can recall neighbors passing by, smiling and waving, on their evening stroll...

The last day was the easiest - all that remained to be done was the exterior. After detailing the inside, washing the outside was child's play. The weather was warm and sunny so it was rather enjoyable, apparently for the mailman as well. I noticed that the smile on his face as he walked past me after dropping the mail at my door appeared somehow overly friendly. Then when I went into the house I realized why. I caught myself in the mirror and saw that I had two, very wet, very transparent, areas on my t-shirt. I see. So did he... I imagine that mailmen see all kinds of things on their daily route.

My Beemer is so perfectly perfect now that am half-avoiding using it. It looks like a black diamond on the outside and a luxury suite on the inside, with a redolence of leather, earthy and sensual.

Every time I get in it I want to take my shoes off like I was in Japan or something. Instead, I just tap my feet together in the air, to knock off any bits of the outside world that are clinging to the soles. Speaking of Persians - like the Japanese, they will also remove their shoes upon entering a house. There's always a bunch of shoes in the foyer of their homes. There must be some nasty, dirty streets in those countries. Also, with those beautiful carpets spread out all over their floors, it's understandable how that custom came into being.

When I get out of the car I scan over the seats, carpets, dash, looking for hair, bits of lint, a leaf, any alien molecule that has dared invade my perfect space. I quickly snatch the intruder.

This obsession with maintaining my car in showroom condition will wear off in a short time. Then slowly, with ninja-like stealth, the dirt, dust and crud will creep back in. And one day I'll look around to see that I'm driving around in a pig sty again. I really hate entropy.

Very Sorry To Hear This

I was stunned just now when I went to Roci's blog. His post took a little bit to sink in. I had to reread it a few times to really believe it. Unexpected bad news doesn't register immediately in our minds. Then I just sat there, thinking.

We correspond with so many people here on the blogs, it should be no surprise that there will be times when we will hear bad news concerning one of the regulars. This is one of those times. It saddens me to hear this.

My prayers are with you and your family, Roci. I will miss your posts and comments. May God bless you and give you strength through this most difficult time.

Clay Pot Cooking

Nutritious, delicious, fast and easy, with minimal cleanup. What more can you ask for?

Let me introduce you to RÖMERTOPF. That's the word in clay pot cooking. If you guys don't have one of these, let me tell you, they're great and well worth the purchase price. They're not that expensive. I think the largest one is like $70.

If you don't get this brand, be sure the one you get is NOT glazed on the inside. I've seen types like that and that's just stupid. This defeats the whole purpose. The porous, unglazed surface retains water, releasing it to keep the food moist during cooking. Google Romertopf and read about it. You can also order them online or get them at most department stores or epicurean shops like Williams-Sonoma.

These clay cooking pots make the best roasts I've ever had. I have one of the huge ones. Not only does the food come out delicious, but preparation time is minimal. This is ideal for busy mothers or lazy single guys/gals like me.

Here's some info from the Romertopf site:

Clay pot cooking is an easy, efficient, healthy cooking method that seals in nutrients and cuts down on the need for added fats. Simply by soaking the Romertopf roaster in water before placing it inside the oven allows it to create and maintain moisture that cooks recipes to perfection, while preventing the nutrients from escaping.

Romertopf cooking not only saves nutrients, but also saves time. Simply soak the Romertopf in water for 5-10 minutes, place ingredients inside and place the whole pot in a cold oven set at 400-450 degrees. Then just walk away. Workout with your favorite celebrity, play with the kids, or soak in the tub for the 45 minutes to an hour the Romertopf needs to cook your meal to perfection.

Romertopf clay pots are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from the smallest which holds 2-5 lbs to the Maxi, which holds a 17 lb Turkey. They are unglazed to ensure perfect absorption, so that ample moisture is available in the cooking cavity.

There are many recipes for the Romertopf available online and you usually get a little cookbook with your purchase. Here's the basic roast recipe that I normally make.

While your Romertopf is soaking in cold water, you get everything ready. I soak mine for 20 minutes, not the 5-10 minutes recommended. That's about how long it takes to prepare everything anyway. You can't oversoak it. And don't preheat the oven. The Romertopf will crack if exposed to extreme temps suddenly. After you take it out of the oven, do not place it on a cold surface. I put in on the stove top burners.

Vegetables - any or all of the following:
  1. Onions
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Red and/or green bell peppers
  4. Potatoes
  5. Carrots
  6. Mushrooms
  7. Eggplant
  8. Zucchini
  9. A few garlic cloves - peeled and crushed
  10. Any other veggies you care to put in there like green beans, Brussel sprouts, turnips, yams - they all turn out delicious in there and everyone can select the ones they like. I love veggies so I'll throw everything in and have a veggie orgy.
Meat - one of the following
  1. Turkey breast
  2. A whole pork tenderloin
  3. Any cut of beef for roasting
  4. A chicken
  5. Small boneless leg of lamb
  6. Whole Cornish game hens
  7. Any other cut of meat you can think of that will fit in there. You may want to quickly brown the meat slightly on all sides first, in a pan. I will do that with the pork tenderloin.
  1. Salt
  2. Black pepper
  3. Oregano
  4. Turmeric - or any other spice you like
  5. Olive oil
Wash and cut up the vegetables into large pieces or not at all if they're small like the mushrooms. I slice the eggplant into rounds. Not having to chop or dice saves a lot of time.

I place the eggplant rounds on the bottom, the tomatoes on top of them. You can place the meat on top of some of the veggies, then add the remaining veggies on top of the meat and all around the sides of the meat. I usually have a huge mountain by the time it's all in there. Good thing the top is domed. It will settle and shrink after everything softens during cooking. Add the salt, pepper, oregano, a light spinkle of olive oil, turmeric and other spices as you go along putting it all together.

There really is no wrong way to do this. Once it starts going, all the flavors will blend beautifully, cooking in the meat's juices and moisture released by the clay pot.

Place in the center of the cold oven. Set the temp to 400-450 degrees as directed. Then just leave it alone for 45 minutes to an hour.

WARNING: Be very careful when you lift the lid from the pot after cooking is completed! The steam that comes out can burn you. I learned this the hard way.

You can serve the roast with a tossed salad on the side and French bread which is great for soaking up those delicious juices.

I gave a Romertopf to my sister. She has a husband, two kids, doesn't care for cooking and isn't very good at it (she called me up once to ask how to make a baked potato). Pretty ironic. She's a great wife and mother, but just hates cooking. Anyhow, she loves her Romertopf. The husband and kids do too...

Who'd A Thunk It

A while back my aunt had mentioned hearing about this new law, wondering if it was really true. I am happy to see here that it is most certainly now the law in this Great State of Texas. I forwarded this article to auntie. It will come as good news to her. She lives in the country and must often travel along very isolated roads.

It does come as quite a surprise. And to imagine that the anti-gun sheeple must be having fits makes this new law even more delish. Score one for the people! You sheeple can go shake under your covers.

I think I'll take Smitty for a ride today - show him the sights...

New law allows concealed weapons in car

04:26 PM CDT on Friday, October 26, 2007


DALLAS - A change in state law has made it legal for just about anyone to keep a handgun nearby, and that has local prosecutors concerned.

"[I] just feel safer with it in the car," said Gail Lewis, who is getting a permit to carry a concealed gun.

But thanks to a change in state law, she doesn't need a permit to carry a gun in her car.

"We're trying to explain the good side and the bad side of that," said Tom Mannewitz, a gun shop owner.

Mannewitz said the good side is that more people will be able to protect themselves from carjackers and the like.

In the past, a person without a gun license had to be traveling across county lines to drive with a concealed weapon. Now, any law-abiding citizen can drive while armed.

So, according to the Dallas District Attorney's Office, the bad side is not having an offensive attack against would-be criminals.

"Under the old law, maybe we could catch people before they broke the law with that gun," said Assistant District Attorney John Grau. "With the current law, we have to let them go."

The new law also states a gun owner can't take the gun out of the car unless they are taking it into their home or workplace, which means more guns left in cars that may become easy target for theft.

"You could be held liable for crimes committed with it," Mannewitz said.

Mannewitz said he recommends bolting the gun down inside the car when leaving it behind.

A Sign of Life

I have wanted to post something to let those of you good people, who have been checking for a sign of life around here, know that indeed I am still among the living and remain somewhat lucid. So, I decided to post this email that I received today from a friend. That's the best I can do presently...

The few things I've heard about Ben Stein have been good in my eyes. I hope and pray that what is good in my eyes is what is good in God's eyes. I think when we nail that, we've got it made. To be on the same wavelength as God is my goal. He made reality, we fight it. I do not like fighting a losing battle nor do I like being manipulated by lesser beings, of which I include myself.

One can't be sure of the authenticity of things passed around the net, but if Mr. Stein did indeed write this, then he has my respect. It's a shame that we've reached the point in this country, in this world, where this sort of a declaration should be notable or even necessary in the first place. If the state of this country offends me, I can't imagine how our Holy God must look upon us - that is if He hasn't already turned His face away.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, "Merry Christmas" to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship Nick and Jessica and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.. She said, "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?"

In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. My Best Regards.

Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Osama...?

Mr. Keller did a nice job with words here but they will have as much effect on that favorite son of Satan as Osama's videos have on us. They're both cheerleaders on the sidelines.

I do find it very ironic that in every threat, every communication, every attack, every condemnation of the West, every action (except cutting off heads), bin Laden and company must resort to Western technology. If it wasn't for us those ignorant ragheads would be spending most of their time picking sand fleas out of their pubic hairs.

I had plenty of math, engineering and computer science classes in which Arabs were my classmates. They are truly a stupid race. Their ONLY advantage and the reason they are a thorn in our side is their superior and innate ability to deceive, cheat and kill - the fruit of their religion, Islam - inventions of their Allah, aka Satan.

Anyhow, here is Mr. Keller's message to Osama:

I prefer the following method of dealing with Osama:
