R.I.P. Robert Miles, Dance Music Pioneer

DJ Robert Miles has died after a brief illness. If you listened to music in the 90s, you can’t have missed the genius of Italian born DJ/music producer Robert Miles, even today DJ’s sample his music worldwide.

“Children” is the most iconic of hits in the history of dance music and really defined his career and revolutionized dance music, creating an entire genre “Dream House” which brought trance music to the mainstream. In clubs they used to have this as the last track of the night.

It is a track that is very moving and brings strong emotions.

After Miles performed this music in a club, a girl approached him in tears. “What music is this?” she asked him. It was a moment he will never forget that moment, realizing that his feelings had been conveyed through his music. His dream turned into reality.

Fable was another one of his fantastic tracks…featured in the movie “Ever After” (with Drew Barrymore).

Iran’s Nuclear Escapade

Why would they possibly want a nuclear weapon?

This map will help demystify Iran’s motives. (Each star represents a U.S. military base.) If Iran had military bases in Canada, Mexico, battleships in the Pacific, Atlantic and in the Gulf of Mexico – How would the US react? Roll over and play dead?

The 1,000 US military bases in about 130 countries is bankrupting this nation, not protecting “American interests” – they are not my interests yet my taxes continue pay for them. They are threatening global security not enhancing it. Free and peaceful trade with countries as Ron Paul proposes is a much better way to prosperity and peace….not “liberation” with carpet bombs and then shoving “democracy” down their throats.

124 Tomahawk Missiles dropped on Libya = $186 Million

124 Tomahawk Missiles dropped on Libya at $1.5 million each = $186 million. The US Congress voted to cut funding for NPR which would save about $10 million a year but they are fine with Barack O-bomber dropping $186 million worth of Tomahawk missiles on brown skinned people in North Africa in a single day.


NATO Tomahawk missiles dropped on Libya total up to $186 million

The “Liberation” of Libyan Oil

Barack O-bomber, our beloved Nobel “War is Peace” Prize winning leader, has given up US sovereignty to the UN and started bombing the people of Libya. Is it me or does he love war more than Bush?

The thing is – even “smart bombs” can’t tell the difference between a Gaddafi mercenary or a rebel, a woman or even a child – bombs just kill and civilians will die. That’s a sure thing.

Who really believes that the “No Fly zone” was intended to “protect” civilians? Shame on them – wake up! Saudi Arabian troops shot protesters, then drove over to neighboring Bahrain and killed protesters there as well. The US/UK governments or the UN did not utter a word of protest – why? Because the Saudi and Bahrain tyrants are OUR tyrants.

Well, not even 24 hours after the bombing which killed civilians, Amr Moussa, the head of the Arab League (who is planning to run for President of post-Mubarak Egypt) complained to reporters:

“What happened differs from the no-fly zone objectives. What we want is civilians’ protection not shelling more civilians.”

Here’s the story and excerpts:

Arab League Slams Libya Attacks Amid Reports of Growing Civilian Toll

Having been instrumental in pushing the UN to approve the resolution authorizing the no-fly zone over Libya, the Arab League has found itself quickly regretting its Faustian bargain. Now, with reports of civilian casualties on the rise, they are condemning the massive air strikes by the US, France and Britain.

In addition to the Arab League, the African Union has also called for an immediate attack on all the strikes against Libya, saying it feared “serious humanitarian consequences.” Though the figures cannot be confirmed on the ground (particularly with the US warning journalists away from Libya), the reports as of late Sunday morning are that as many as 64 people have been killed in the air strikes and hundreds wounded. US commander Admiral Michael Mullen insists he has seen no reports of any civilian casualties at all.

Here’s Proof: Keynesian Economics Fail Miserably

Here you have the proof – The U.K. has been following the Keynesian economic prescription to the fullest; it cut interest rates, greatly drove up government spending (what our government calls “stimulus” – I call it a waste of taxpayers’ money), printed money like crazy, and nationalized half of the banking industry – Now you have the results: A stagnant economy, crippling budget deficit, rising prices, rising unemployment. As I said before – you cannot put out a fire by spraying it with gasoline.

This is pretty much what is going to happen in the US as well – until we allow the banks to fail and go bankrupt instead of bailing them out for their incompetence, stop spending trillions on foreign wars against nations that pose no threat to us, stop bailing out GM, etc – there is not going to be a recovery. It’s the nature of the beast (business cycle).

Never-ending Government Lies

A Brilliant article on how free markets built America – today the government bamboozles people into tax slavery by lying about how these financial crisis are caused by lack of regulation – which are actually created due to government intervention and over-regulation!

Now the government is setting interest rates and fees for credit card companies, dictating the health care costs, health care treatment and rationing of health care for us all – ignoring the fact that intervention and regulation is causing high health care costs. If I could buy my own health care from the lizard guy at Geico, health care costs would drop dramatically as hospitals and doctors would compete directly for my business.

We thought the Internet is the last free place on earth – no longer – Obama is appointing an Internet Czar and soon will be regulating the Internet.

Where in the Constitution is it written that this is the government’s job? People, you are witnessing the fall of the mighty USA,

Lately, the US government is invading and intruding way too much into the economy and into activities it historically never managed before.

Who says we are still a free country?

Now for the article link – read it – very enlightening and educational:

Obama Urges Bailout For Auto Industry

Now that banking, insurance, airline, retail (in the form of “stimulus”), housing, and many other industries are getting bailouts – the US auto industry is also looking for its own bailout of taxpayer money. And Obama is supporting this. This is such a terrible idea. Socialism gone wild. Las Vegas casinos are not doing well either – what next President Obama? Another bailout for them too?

The US auto industry has been in trouble for a long time now – this is due to their failure to change their business model that has seen sales plummet. Consumers no longer want cars that are gas guzzlers and clunky, outdated, unreliable vehicles. This is survival of the fittest – either you make better vehicles or fizzle out and die.

The taxpayers should not have to bailout the auto industry’s losses because they can’t make good cars, cannot run their companies profitably.

Once you start giving bailouts to companies that can’t run successfully – they will keep asking for more. We are only prolonging the inevitable while hurting the only ones who are helping to keep the economy alive – the taxpayers. This is theft – shame on Obama for proposing it.


Obama asks Bush to help auto industry: NY Times

WASHINGTON (AFP) — President-elect Barack Obama asked President George W. Bush during a White House meeting for immediate aid for the struggling US auto industry, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.

During their private meeting, Bush said he could support some aid in exchange for approval of a free-trade agreement with Colombia, the Times said, citing unnamed people familiar with the discussion.

However, neither Obama nor Democrats in Congress — who been blocking the trade pact — seem willing to bend on Colombia, the Times wrote.
