The Great Middle East Rebellion

We need to analyze this situation without partisan bickering. There has to be understanding of what's going on there.

These people are seeking the return of the Caliphate that the Turks dismantled. Ataturk eliminated that institution.

They want a Caliphate, but they all want to be the Caliph. This will cause the Arab/Muslim world to descend into chaos and all out war for decades. Unless the House of Saud takes initiative to form the Caliphate themselves I can see no hope of it ending in anything but a long bloody mess.

What I can see is the Saudis taking control of the Suez and most of the oil trade in the region. If there's one thing the House of Saud has going for it in this mess, it's their position as Guardians of Mecca and Medina.

I just don't know what to make of what the world would be like with a new Caliphate led by the House of Saud. How large would the boundaries be?

The Passing of Royal Marshall

Royal Marshall of the Neal Boortz Show passed away suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 43, the same age that my cousin Jimmy Pickens died. This has struck me with a bit of revisited shock since I am an avid listener to the show and it's similarity to my cousins passing. Royal is survived by a wife and two little girls.
The Boortz clan is setting up a memorial fund for the protection and education of these little girls. I suggest you go to and make a contribution.

The phone of the future now!

Motorola has completely blown the competition out of the water with the new Atrix. I cannot begin to give you the lowdown on this phone/computer/multimedia experience in my own words. Somebody at Motorola is a supergenius.

State of the Union

The recent request by certain democrats to sit together in the well of the House for the state of the Union Speech is nothing more than a posturing trick.
The intent of this trick is to make the Republicans appear to be supportive of President Obama during some of the more liberal parts of his speech. It is also an attempt to make the TV coverage about some sort of "untiy" behind the President that they can use against the right wing of the party. Attempting to marginalize the right by making it appear that the "moderates" in the Republican party stand with the President and the Democrats.
Just say no to trickery from the left.
