U.S. Homeland Security: Too Much Or Too Little?
Here's an interesting post 9/11 security article from Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times columnist, Thomas Friedman.

"And anyone who has flown on a private jet since 9/11 can tell you that security at these private terminals is still so lax that, if you showed up in a Saudi headdress with a North Carolina driver's licence under the name of "Billy Bob bin Laden" and asked for directions for your chartered Lear jet to Lower Manhattan, there's a good chance no one would stop you", however, "if your name is Mohammed and you are a 21-year-old single Arab man and you have not visited Disney World yet, well, you may want to consider Euro Disney, because your chances of getting a tourist visa are very low."

Movie Review 91: Angels And Demons Revealed
Mood:  a-ok
This film doesn't live up to its title, but it certainly reveals hidden facts about secret societies like "The Knights Templar, and "The Free Masons".

Is there a group that seeks world domination and total control? Without getting into the details, the producers purchased secret materials that undeniably point to one closed group:"The Illuminati". This could be very scary.

Three stars, because I've never seen this kind of material before and I like conspiracies.

The Ultra Secret Illuminati Brotherhood
This is my own mystical revelation on the inner inner circle of the Illuminati. The inner inner core is 13 individuals. Fundamentally, these are the 12 Apostles(Judas was replaced by Mathias) plus Paul which equals 13, still alive, still immortal and still operating.

Taking over and ruling the earth was part of the "Great Commission". There's different intrepretations to that idea. With Jesus Christ, the apostles are known as the basic "Eternal Brotherhood." Without Christ, they are the basic other-worldly "Illuminati Brotherhood."

For the last two thousand years, they've been in training in order to establish a base on Earth along with Jesus Christ. Fundamentally, this is rule over this dirt ball by "divine superbeings", however, there's been a perversion of this goal to read "rule of inferior beings" By "the master race". Hopefully, you're partially aware of where that came from.

The are problems within the 13 that have not been resolved yet and which delayed "The Second Coming Of Christ".

Most of the basic Eternal Brotherhood are powerful beings who could defeated any world army in a matter of seconds. I don't believe that the inner circle of "The Earthly Illuminati" or "L. Ron Hubbard" are aware of their existence yet.

Why I'd Like To Retire Soon From Canada Post
Mood:  down
I've worked a long time at Canada Post and I'm starting to get fed up with it. Perhaps, I should take a reduced pension in the next two years and do something more creative like basketweaving or screenwriting.

Below is a letter which I sent to Deborah Bourque, the president of The Canadian Union Of Postal Workers.

"RE: The Excessive Use Of Casuals At The Toronto Exchange Office(TEO)

Please note, that management is continuing to use casuals on almost a daily basis at TEO (including a temporary illegal midnight shift). The jobs that the casuals are doing on the ?P Belts? are jobs that should go to fulltime, fulltime staff. The volumes have increased at TEO, but staffing gains have been minimal? Neither is there a night staff which would create more quality junior jobs and assist the processing of sometimes huge backlogs.

Unfortunately, most postal management seems to have a hard time dealing with prosperity. Instead of a well organized highly equipped work force. We get management ?by the seat of their pants.?

As you know, we deal with Customs and improvements in the operation have to be cleared with them too.

The most common management ad hoc plan is to give overtime or throw bodies (casuals)into an area because they can do it. Nevertheless, TEO problems remain. Backlogs continue. Double handlings continue. Casuals do some of our jobs and no long term solution had been found for TEO.

An efficient operation at Drew Rd was crammed in the WLPP without sufficient space, belts and staff to expand. Now the name of the game is to blame us or Customs for delay of the mail and the backlogs.

We need help from the National Exec to get postal management to stop using casuals and stop blaming CUPW members and Customs for their own inability to come up with a long term plan for TEO."

There must be life and fun stuff to do outside of Canada Post.

"Some Day The Hurting Will End"
These were memorable words by the late Terry Fox who was lost his fight to cancer somewhere in Northern Ontario.

He was the first person to attempt a cross country walk for a cause(raising money for cancer research)in Canada.

Too many, he's Canada's greatest Canadian because he taught us to continue towards our goals no matter what the obstacles.

Terry's "Marathon Of Hope" started in Newfoundland when he dipped his artificial leg into the Alantic Ocean, 25 years ago this day.

It's Been A Tough Few Days At Work(Canada Post Office)
A union rep told us last week that management wouldn't be using any more casuals(temporary workers)instead fulltime staff in our section. Supposedly, the staffing problem had been resolved.

Well, what do you know? The place has been flooded by casuals every day since then. Bottom line, the staffing problem hasn't been solved.

Fulltime jobs are still be done by temps. This is hard to stomach. The volumes of mail has increased dramatically in our section over the last year, but there's been problems in handling it with our present staffing level.

This should translate into more fulltime fulltime jobs on our day staff, but it hasn't. I've been working with the local CUPW president on this situation. Where's the common sense in all of this? I don't see it.

The LAN Of Jesus Christ
Biblically, this is "The Mind Of Christ." In the 21st century, this would be similiar to a "Local Area Computer Network."

If one had an internet that is connected to a divine mind, it could also be called "A Mind Of Christ". Theoretically, one could perceive all the experiences of the Christian believers over the last 2000 years.

Jesus said, "I am the vine and you are the branches."

In the 20th/21st century, artists and sci/fi writers have had visions of other worlds like never before.

First contact with "The Universal Brotherhood of Spirits" is closer than we think.

The Catholic Church And The New Pope Face 21st Century Challenges
While John Paul had many successes in his papacy, it can't be ignored that Roman Catholics are at a crossroads in their existence.

Over 60% of Catholics come from poorer countries where aids and poverty are epidemic. Only 7% of the U.S. are Catholic and Europe comes in at a disappointing 25%.

An editoral in the Toronto Star summed it up this way:

"There is pressure to come to a new consensus on matters of "Church governance," including addressing the shortage of priests, reconsidering celibacy rules for clergy, expanding the role of women.

Catholics must address regional issues such as the Church's dwindling appeal in North America and Europe, the rapid growth of a conservative Church in Africa and Asia, and the attraction of Christian evangelicals in traditionally Catholic Latin America.

There are delicate interfaith issues to consider, including Christian unity and Christian-Muslim relations, which are strained in some regions.

Finally, Catholics cannot avoid challenging moral issues including the growing north-south divide, biotechnology advances, homosexuality, birth control and the use of condoms to control disease."

The visible and non-visible Church of Christ must continue to work together to improve the lot of every man, woman and child on this planet.

Spiritual stewardship continues even after death. "As it was in the beginning, is now and ever more shall be world without end."

Jesus Worked Within John Paul 2
I'm not a Roman Catholic, but it appears that John Paul 11 was used by Christ to effect changes in conditions on planet earth. A short list is presented below:
1. The fall of Communism
2. Forgiveness of the RC Church for its anti-Semitism in the past
3. Forgiveness of the RC Church for its sexual crimes against children
4. The example of a suffering servant and spiritual being who still cares for humanity, irregardless of race or religion.
5. And most important, Jesus's spiritual outreach through the Pope to peoples of different faiths.

This isn't dogma lifted from a 2000-year historical document. It's an encounter with the living Jesus of the 20 and 21st century.

The Roman Catholic Church has many flaws, just like any other man-made institution.

Jesus will communicate his messages through anyone he wants including non-Christians and sci/fi writers.

We definitely have entered a new age and a new millennium for the Christian Church and all of humanity.

Time For A More Progressive Catholic Church
Mood:  bright
Will the next pope move the Roman Catholic church into the 21st century? Will the church become more progressive on issues like female priests, married priests, and contraception?

I'm not expecting Catholic clergy to endorse gay marriage, but progress in other important areas would be welcome.
