UN Climate Summit Leader Christiana Figueres Prays to Mayan Moon Goddess Ixchel

This is why United States tax dollars should never be sent to the United Nations. Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change recently prayed to the Maya Moon Goddess in her opening statement.

Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to COP16, welcome to CMP6! Welcome to the land of the ancient Mayan goddess

Next to being the goddess of the moon, Ixchel was also the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you - because today, you are gathered in CancĂșn to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.

I do not care if Ms. Figueres idolizes Ixchel in her spare time, but she needs to keep her fictional characters to herself especially in when she is in a official capacity. Ms. Figueres, you are an idiot!

FLASHBACK: Bobby O'Jay Says WDIA Set to Begin HD2 Simulcast

The only reason I'm posting this article about WDIA upgrading its broadcast to HD is because I have been getting a lot of traffic from people looking for Bobby O'Jay in the last few days. Last year, I posted an encounter between former Mayor Willie Herenton and Mr. O'Jay from the radio (Willie Herenton Blasts WDIA's Bobby O'Jay on Radio and Joe Birch on TV (W.W. Says His State of Mind is Real Good)!) that was an instant classic, so perhaps that is why I'm getting the traffic. Nevertheless, this story also allowed me the chance to do some research on HD radio which I had heard about, but knew nothing about.

CLEAR CHANNEL Black Talk WDIA-A/MEMPHIS has been pumping out 50,000 watts of good will for decades. Now, according to OM/morning host BOBBY O’JAY, "It’s time for an upgrade." According to O’JAY, the station is scheduled to simulcast on sister station Urban AC KJMS’s HD2 side channel, which is 100,000 watts.

Flight Deck View from USS George Washington of War Games with South Korea in Yellow Sea

If the above video does not play, click here to visit the CNN site.


The above document is a legal research paper I did in law school back in 2001. I never published the above document, so I figured that I might as well dust off the digital archives and post it for the world to see (or not).

Black Friday 2010 Shopping Spree Video Montage

I do not remember "Black Friday" being so crazy when I was a kid. I remember parents fighting over Cabbage Patch Kids dolls in the 1980s, but I don't recall if that occurred the day after Thanksgiving. Nevertheless, this is consumerism at its very worst - ugh!

Homeland Security Deactivates Scores of Websites without Court Order

Homeland Security is seizing websites at its sole discretion. This is a slippery slope that is probably better handled by the U.S. Marshals or the FBI instead of Homeland Security.

The Homeland Security Department's customs enforcement division has gone on a Web site shutdown spree, closing down at least 76 domains this week, according to online reports.

Unless Al-CIA-da is dealing in bootleg MP3s and home videos, this is yet another ridiculous waste of government resources. I recognize that willful & intentional copyright infringement is a crime. However, except in very rare, egregious cases, I do not feel copyright infringement poses a serious threat to the health, safety and general welfare of the community - at all!

If you ever happen to open up your favorite browser, click to Remixx World! and it's no longer available, then you will know that Homeland Security (and/or Google) has/have targeted it for elimination!
