Yep, its upside down...


The finest President we've had in a long time.

The finest President we'll have in a long time.
God have mercy on America.


I just thought I would try to summarize the election and what it means.

Stupid sheeple elected Obama.

Around 80% of his supporters don't know the differences between his and McCain's policies. (When told that McCain's policies were Obama's, they didn't notice)

They voted for him because they think they will be receiving more unearned money. (Among other things)

There was a story of some woman who said that Obama would pay her rent and heating bill, and another guy was buying a gun because under Obama he wouldn't be able to, but he was voting for Obama because the guy thought that Obama would increase his pension.

These sheeple also don't know anything about economics.

They don't know the differences between Capitalism and Socialism, Communism and Marxism.

They have no idea that by voting for a Marxist/Socialist/Communist candidate, they are voting to destroy Capitalism.

Time to dig up the dictionary.

Capitalism: an economic system in which natural resources and means of production are privately owned, investments are determined by private decision rather than by state control, and prices, production, and the distribution of goods are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

Socialism: 1: any of various economic and political theories or social systems based on collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. 2: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distributional of goods and pay according to work done.

Communism: 1: a social system in which property and goods are owned in common; also: a theory advocating such a system 2: cap a: a doctrine based upon revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that is the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Chinese People's Republic, and several satellite nations b: a totalitarian system of government in which a single party controls state-owned means of production with the professed aim of establishing a stateless society.

Marxism: the political, economic, and social doctrines developed by Karl Marx that provide the basis for Marxian socialism and much of modern Communism.

Those definitions are from a dictionary that was printed in the days of president Ronald Reagan.

Basically, people who have no idea what they voted for, just elected a full blown Communist.

And they wouldn't care if you told them that Obama is a Communist, because they have no idea what a Communist will do.

If they studied history, they would have known that Communism has a reputation of making everybody poor. (Ignorance and apathy at its finest)

But, they voted for it....

Now, time for the good news!

America was founded on the principles of Capitalism.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. we hold these truths self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Those opening lines of The Declaration of Independence directly contradict the principles of Socialism, Communism and Marxism.

The term 'Declaration of Independence' is in its self in contradiction with those those three principles.

Under the Marxist umbrella, there is no independence.

Everyone is owned and depends on the government for everything.

So, where do we go from here?

We let these stupid sheeple teach themselves just how bad Communism is.

They've reached out and taken hold of it.

All we can do now is let them taste it.

Yes, hard times will come, but it is in hard times that men turn to God.

And that is what is ultimately important.

What will happen to America?

I honestly cannot say for sure.

I expect there will be an economic recession, or maybe even a full blown depression.

Obama has stated that the Constitution is a 'flawed' document, and I imagine that he will try to remake it and America in the image of Communism.

I hear he plans to institute mandatory 'voluntary' community service.

There is also talk of some sort of 'civilian force', which of course will be mandatory. (Think 'Hitler Youth')

The time has come to place our trust in God and lean on the Everlasting.

And, Oh yeah, Fight B. Hussein Obama every inch of the way.

Did you know...

...That ACORN had a hand in pressuring banks to give out high risk loans?

Yep, you got it!

ACORN not only used legal methods to 'encourage' banks to give these high risk loans, but they also used intimidation tactics against bank officials!

Now many of these banks are going under because they loaned money to people who could not pay it back.

Not only are they going under, they are taking the economy with them...

All thanks to ACORN insisting that banks give loans to people who could not pay them back.

Makes you wonder if ACORN isn't trying to make the economy to fail!

Related: The Role of Congress in the Recession of 2008


ACORN stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now

Obama used to work for ACORN and is still closely associated with them.
(Remember all the talk about Obama being a Community Organizer?)

If it weren't for ACORN, Obama may not have been elected.

How did they help him so much?


They register voters ... Selectively.

ACORN does voter registration drives and targets sheeple in slums, low income housing, and anyone outside of welfare offices ... As long as they are Democrats

They also register dead people, felons and cartoon characters.

Then they help all those sheeple, felons, deceased, and cartoon characters to vote early and often.

ACORN was founded on Socialist/Communist principles.

They are nothing more than Communist operatives who commit fraud for a living.


You know, as much as I hate to admit it, Joe Biden was right.

At least partially.

It is America that will be tested in the days to come.

America will be tested by any and every foe, near and far.

The first and foremost will be....

B. Hussein Obama.

Thats right.

Obama, America's greatest enemy and toughest test.

Russia and Iran will have to wait their turn, because The Zero is at the head of the line.

Now, back to the regular content...

Caution list (The Ugly)

People who don't quite make the Troll list, but deserved mentioning.

Names to be removed are first marked as such, then are blacked out, and ultimatly removed.

Names are upgraded and downgraded between the Troll list(above) and the this Caution list, based on behavior.

A consistent courteous pattern of posting behavior is what gets names removed from these lists. (Badmouthing JR on other forums is not)

Inactive accounts are grayed out and the status does not change.

About me:

I was born in [city redacted], [state redacted] in [year redacted].
(All right, I'll give you a hint: I was born sometime in the nineteen hundreds.)

My mother taught me reading, printing and simple math. (I never learned cursive writing)

My only other formal academic education was for 2 weeks in a private school.

I mostly grew up out in the country, preferably with lots of woods nearby. (A country boy can survive)
By the time I was 16, my family had moved approximately 16 times, give or take. (Ghosts are real, just not the kind you think.)

When I was a teenager I taught myself to type so I could chat on IRC, and my brother taught me the basics of the ANSI C programming language. I've since become quite fluent in C and written quite a few programs. (You can read about my map program below)

Around that time I also became a fan of the Linux operating system. (I use it almost exclusively now)

Since then, I've learned a few more programming languages and become somewhat fluent with HTML and JavaScript, as well as acquired addition mundane skills which would be laborious to recount here. (which means I've skipped lots of details...)


Things [and subjects] I enjoy [and actually still do]:

(not in any sort of order)

Making things.
Writing programs.
Desiging circuit boards.
Reading. (Chronicles of Narnia [all seven books] are an all time favorite.)
Studying History. (Especially the WW2 era. America's finest hour?)
Math. (I have a hard time with it sometimes, but I find it absolutely fascinating.)
Machining. (carving things out of metal with a mill/lathe.)
Creating 3D computer art. (sample and link below)
Welding. (A retired professional welder who used to work for Lockheed Martin building ships gave me lessons.)

That pretty well sums it up.

If you have questions, feel free to ask questions.

I can't guarantee an answer, but if you don't ask, you won't know.

My map program (obsolete)

The largest program I've written to date is probably my map program.
(2010-02-15 Update: at 5,700+ lines of C code, its actually smaller than another program which comes in at 21,400+ lines, and may be overtaken by yet another map program [not yet finished] which is currently at 5,000+ lines)

By connecting a GPS to my laptop computer, my map program can display in realtime the location sent to the laptop by the GPS.

You can view screen shots for the Map window, Main window and the Waypoint editor window. (The reason the Waypoint editor has buttons for all the letters is because the program was designed to be run on a tablet pc that has no keybord)

(The red dots were added in Gimp to obscure the locations and some of the fields are all zeros because the GPS was not connected.)

This program runs on Linux.
I have no intention of porting it to Windblow$.

The only wedding I've ever attended...

Many many years ago, so long ago I cannot remember exactly when, my family attended a wedding.

The church was huge and there were hundreds of guests.

I can't remember if we arrived late or not, but we managed to find seats near the back, centered in the left half of church.

I have no recollection of who was getting married, but it must have been someone my parents knew.

Probably my most vivid memories are of the top half of the pipe organ and the backs of the heads of the people in front of me.

You see, I was only around five or six, and everyone was standing up.

All in all, I was confined to the area of a chair for what seemed like an eternity, when I could have been roaming and exploring the woods behind my house with my siblings.

Now, if someone had gotten up there and preached it wouldn't have been so bad.

But no, its just show up, wait for it to be over, and then leave.

No, we didn't stay for the reception.

Allegedly someone got married, but I remember nothing but the organ, the backs of peoples heads, and waiting...

I think I've been invited to at least one wedding since then, but I never gave it a second thought.

I guess the moral of this story is, if you can't put a five year old in the front row, don't take them to a wedding.

Of course, sometimes I wonder, are the people whose wedding I attended still married?


Funny sayings:

(Unless otherwise specified, these are all my own)

Conservative ideology: Nip it in the bud.
Liberal ideology: Nip it in the butt.

When you're a Bull, every problem tends to look like a Matador in tight pants.

If your going to fight dragons, wear fire proof underwear.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Communism, I shall fear no Democrat: for thou art with me; thy Word and my Rifle, they comfort me.

A partisan witch hunt is when a bunch of partisan witches go hunting.

Great minds run in great circles. [borrowed and improved]
Small minds run in greater circles.

Brainstorming ideas is for civilized folks... Barnstorm your ideas!

The wheels of circular reasoning on which the boondoggle of Evolution rides is a poor substitute for the mythical legs which have utterly failed to evolve.

I'd challenge Obama to a game of paintball, but I'm afraid he would squeal like a Mujahid on 48 volts.

Even Samson knew, a bunch of Democrats standing around jawing gets people killed.

Liberalism is the epitome of perpetual gross adult immaturity and should be reclassified as a developmental disability.

I pity the man whom has not whereof to live for, but woe upon woes unto him who has neither right nor cause for which to die.

(More coming later)

If you use any of these sayings, please attribute them.

About the name Fichori

Pronounced fi'kôr'ē (or Fi-kor-rey)
fi as in fish
chor as in chord
i as in story

The name, [unrelated to the village of the same name located in the Democratic Republic of Georgia. (not the US state)] comes form a novel I started to write but never finished haven't found the time/motivation to work on. (see below)

About the novel (that has yet to be)

I love stories.

I love reading them, listening to other people read them, telling them, listening to other people tell them, and probably most of all, writing them.

Stories are timeless and story telling is a grand hobby. (And I just happen to be a sucker for timeless and grand things)

Ok... (On with the story!)

Quite a few years ago, I decided to sharpen my very dull English skills.

This mostly involved spelling and grammar.

Fortunately, I know someone who's college major was English, and who was kind enough to read over stuff I had written and give me pointers, etc.

So I started writing.

What I ended up with was a several page ‘snippet’ that the person grading it referred to as the ‘beginning of a novel’

Unfortunately, I appear to have misplaced those original writings. (might be backed up on a CD somewhere)

Anyway, needless to say, I was inspired.

A short time later, I started work on, by a stretch of the imagination, the greatest story never told.

I got a page or so done, when I realized that what I needed to do was create the foundation of my story before actually working on the story its self.

So I created a canon in which I defined all my characters, where, they were from, what the countries were like, what the geography looked like, etc.

Somewhere along there, I decided I needed maps, lots of maps.

Unfortunately, there is a practical limit to the size of map you can create in an image editor, and that quickly derailed my map making endeavor.

Which is where I am now.

On the bright side, I have (I believe) acquired the knowledge/skills necessary to write a program that would facilitate the creation of entire virtual worlds, with details all the way down to dandelions growing along the road. (Yes, I've seriously considered turning this ‘idea’ into a video game, still think about it occasionally)

Here is the abstract description of my main character.

The character, a professed explorer who is really a mercenary at heart that is
claiming to be a chronicler just to get by, tries to sway the fight between
good and evil in a magical world without letting on he is anything
besides a 'man of the pen'.

When I started writing, the thing I had the most difficulty with, was trying to decide what perspective to write from.

The result of those trials, was Fichori, a gray haired adventurer through who's eyes we discover this magical world of which I thrill to write.

While he may be my main character, in his world, he is only a man telling a story of grand and epic proportions, of which he was a meddling observer.

All in all, this is a project I would absolutely love to move forward.

I say move forward because I don't think I could write a last page that didn't lead into the next book. (I've read to many great books that ended too soon)

Well, we'll see.
