About time

Literally and virtually. I am now in the Atherton Tablelands, most beautiful part of Queensland. Also our chat site has moved as rocketwolf.net is now defunct. We are now at http://www.clubrocketchat.com so come on over and let’s get the party started.

The Big Move

Some moves are just not normal. I have moved more times than should be allowed per human being. Since the time I joined the military in 1981, I have moved not less than 35 times. Many moves were made while in the military both as a single military member as well as a married military member.

When I was single in the military, moves were considered fast, purposeful and required, otherwise known as the duffle bag drag. Everything you owned went into a single duffle bag and off you went in a rush that took less than 30 minutes.

Then I got married, and moves began getting more difficult. Introducing the house hold goods shuffle. The military gladly picked up the tab for moving and regardless if you moved from offbase, to onbase, or from onbase to offbase, or around the world, the military would snatch up your belongings and put them in a big wooden box, stamp it and haul it to the new location.

After my military service obligations had been completed and I became a civilian once again, the moves got even more difficult, but bearable. I was at least able to pack my things the way I wanted and sift through what I had to get rid of the junk. The moves got easier as I reduced my “junk load” with every move I made reducing my total household volume to neccessities.

Now I am making a move I never imagined I would make. I am moving from Pennsylvania to Australia.

It has been a long 8 weeks since I began packing little bits at a time. After 4 weeks had passed and I had gotten a moving company in to do a quote, is when I realized that the moving companies want to pack everything themself. My inventory would not be sufficient for them and the bill would be well over $3000.

I began unpacking again, and deciding what I wanted to take, and what I wanted to get rid of during this new sifting process. Why am I unpacking? I found out that it was cheaper to mail my household goods rather than ship them with a moving company. Total saved? $1500.

Threat, Warning, Promise?

This morning I received a comment on my blog in the “What are you prepared to do?? ” by AnferTuto (hfiifiihhiir@gawab.com | IP: 62.231.243.138) stating “Hola faretaste mekodinosad.”

Curious as to what this means, I Googled the phrase and received 17,000 hits for the phrase. 99% of them are the same comment posted on blogs. Search ResultsSo then I went to www.islamicity.com and searched the phrase in their online Qu’ran search tool and found not less than 68 references to “MEKODINOSAD.”

Here are a few of the references to the phrase:

English (Yusuf Ali): Al-A’raf (The Heights)

7:137 And We made a people, considered weak (and of no account), inheritors of lands in both east and west, – lands whereon We sent down Our blessings. The fair promise of thy Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, because they had patience and constancy, and We leveled to the ground the great works and fine buildings which Pharaoh and his people erected (with such pride).

English (Yusuf Ali): Al-Ahzab (The Confederates)

33:19 Covetous over you. Then when fear comes, thou wilt see them looking to thee, their eyes revolving, like (those of) one over whom hovers death: but when the fear is past, they will smite you with sharp tongues, covetous of goods. Such men have no faith, and so Allah has made their deeds of none effect: and that is easy for Allah.

English (Yusuf Ali): Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War)

8:35 Their prayer at the House (of Allah. is nothing but whistling and clapping of hands: (Its only answer can be), “Taste ye the penalty because ye blasphemed.”

English (Yusuf Ali): At-Tauba (The Repentance)

9:35 On the Day when heat will be produced out of that (wealth) in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs.- “This is the (treasure) which ye buried for yourselves: taste ye, then, the (treasures) ye buried!”

English (Yusuf Ali): Hud (The Prophet Hud)

11:20 They will in no way frustrate (His design) on earth, nor have they protectors besides Allah. Their penalty will be doubled! They lost the power to hear, and they did not see!

English (Yusuf Ali): An-Nahl (The Bee)

16:112 Allah sets forth a Parable: a city enjoying security and quiet, abundantly supplied with sustenance from every place: Yet was it ungrateful for the favours of Allah. so Allah made it taste of hunger and terror (in extremes) (closing in on it) like a garment (from every side), because of the (evil) which (its people) wrought.

If you were an Islamic/Muslim terrorist who believed with all his heart in the words of the Qu’ran, would you not be willing to strap a bomb to your body or wrap a plane around yourself and do as much damage to the country enjoying security and comfort, food a plenty, and wealth believing you are doing the bidding of the Almighty? Why is it so hard for democrats and Americans to understand, THIS IS HOW they think. This is what they BELIEVE. They are doing the work of Allah in their minds.

We leveled to the ground the great works and fine buildings which Pharaoh and his people erected (with such pride).” Does this not sound like The World Trade Center (bombing in the parking deck 1990, and success in 2001), The Pentagon (success 2001), The Capitol of the U.S. (missed attempt 2001)? Was this the complete list or the “short list”? I honestly think this was the short list and there are many more targets in the U.S. Not targets we think are targets, but ones they see as targets.

“… but when the fear is past, they will smite you with sharp tongues, covetous of goods.” When we feel we have done a good enough job in Iraq, Afghanistan,and other places, cut and run like the democrats would have us do, will we not feel that the fear is past? It sounds like the Democrats already feel that the fear is past, the way they have been pushing to get out of Iraq. This is when they will attack again, smiting at our necks, covetous of our goods and reaping the spoils of war.

Taste ye the penalty because ye blasphemed.” The spoils of war.

Their penalty will be doubled! They lost the power to hear, and they did not see!” Why? Because the democratic party has been deaf and blind for so long because they have been engaging in subverting, sabotaging, and attempting to overthrow President Bush with their own agenda, that they did not see the REAL threat. Is this not playing right into the hands of Islamic/Muslim terrorist in essence helping them, aiding them? Sound like Treason? TREASON – This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance. The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offense is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. Is this not “exactly” what the Democrats have been doing ever since President Bush became President?

We have a threat, we have our warnings (today I discovered 17,000 warnings), there is a promise to Allah to do his bidding. Why can’t we hear it or see it? And the comment from AnferTuto I take seriously as a threat.

 

Just the beginning

Everything has a beginning and an end. This is the beginning of a new blog by me.

My Name is Scott, others call me Rocket. you can address me any way you wish.

I hope what you read here is worthy of sending to your friends. This is an interactive blog and I strongly encourage comments. Don’t protect my feelings, or try and be tactful. I have no tact and I understand blunt honesty. Just be you and express yourself any way you wish.

Dragons Breath If my personality could be described as anything, it would best be done by calling it “dragon’s Breath”. I make no excuses for myself. I am who I am for a reason. Do not mistake this description as all-encompassing. As with anyone else, there are many sides to me and many emotional states. I am not without compassion, it just trails behind me quite a distance.

We are the architects of our own destiny.
