Iran today voted in it's parliament to resume it's production of it's "peaceful" nuclear enrichment program. These votes come ironically as talks with Europe have failed to produce anything productive lately. The bill the parliament approved is encouraging all scientists to make full use of the nation's technology in order to build a quality nuclear program (for peaceful means I guess). (Source)
A quick stop in China reveals the nation shutting down 1,600 internet cafe's not over "internet freedom" but rather for them exposing youth to immoral online entities ranging from violent video games to pornography to gambling. Although China is still in question for much of it's human rights issues, their determination to rescue their upcoming (and current) generation from perceived filth is worth an applause from me.

And last but not least the NAACP has been charged with promoting a political party by blasting the GOP by the IRS which could mean a loss of it's tax exempt status. Investigation is still on going, and many democrats are curious as to the "timing" of this election. Never the less although this blogger is grateful that this non profit organization is finally being held accountable for their actions, I expect little to be done from this probe. Selah! (Source)
And for those of you curious as to why Google News is still in a beta mode setting, the answer lies in the source link below. And as always, verify everything I do in Google. Selah!

With polls so close and news agencies aligning themselves with their "candidate," it is no surprise that no one (unfortunately) knows the results of this election. Three sources of poll data that I rely upon are predicting different results about the election.
The Blogging Caesar, whose accurate analysis I have relied upon the past is predicting (on his latest results) that Kerry is going to win with 279 electoral votes and Bush with 259 votes. Meanwhile Real Clear Politics which like the Blogging Caesar does a polling of polls is predicting Bush winning with less than 2.1% of the vote. Meanwhile, my favorite interactive polling group Electoral Vote is predicting Bush winning with 280 electoral votes and Kerry with 243. Ghetto isn't it?
On a side note I have already voted (absentee) and based on the picture below you can probably figure out who I voted for. Selah!

On other events around the world, Yasser Arafat has been flown to Paris due to his medical condition. French doctors have ruled out leukemia as a cause of his decline in health recently, but other factors still remain. Arafat has been promised safe passage back to Israel if he so desires. Israel lifted his ban on travel Thursday, fearing they would be blamed for his declining health. For more info, click here.
And the European Union (EU) drafted their first constitution in Rome, which is an impressive accomplishment for 25 member nations to do. There are some arguments from nine members though, which would mean ratification may not happen until 2007. Click the source link below for more info. Selah!

So...I have my State License Exam tomorrow (for Insurance). I have just gotten done studying and I have to go to work later on tonight, but I that the Lord above would grant me some favor with the upcoming exam (although I think He would be more concerned with me studying than with me asking for the wisdom of Solomon).
Well, the vote is coming soon, and I wonder who everyone is going for. You can tell from my Alliances who I am voting for, but I am curious as to who everyone else is going to vote for. Selah?
our election. The Guardian, a news organization in England was
contacting undecided voters in Ohio in order to convince them to
select candidates other than President Bush.
Ironically, an unanticipated backlash occured in which not only did
the website come under attack from hackers and spam but the news
agency received many angry letters as well. You can go here for more
I do not know if Blogger is currently down so emailing this out will
have to do. Selah!

On other news today many republicans are reporting "acts of violence" as this election is heating up. Reports from broken windows, thefts, bullets being fired into offices to a volunteer's arm being badly sprained by "peaceful" demonstrators displayed clear evidence of the increasing "voter violence" that is taking shape within the nation. (click here) Democrats reported the similiar instances against them with broken mail boxes and lap tops stolen as a result.
It seems people's passions are increasing over this presidency. As election day draws increasingly near, it seems that people are determined to fight for their candidate regardless of the "legalities" of their actions. Ironically the system that is suppose to unite us is regretably dividing us. Selah.

Well, my schedule for this week is "kinda open." I have my insurance liscence test this Friday (for work) and I may get a second job (although my boss at Primerica would probably rather I stay with this one full time). Only time will tell I guess.
There isn't much activity here, but I think I am going to adjust my blogger one more time before I go...just changing some features here and there...Selah!

Both have their faults and successes. Bush was unable to find any WMD in Iraq, although he has been the driving wedge preventing many terrorists organizations from performing operations against the West (not to mention helping Iraqi's with becoming a democracy). I am not a fan of his Patriot Act, but I do support many of the economic policies that he is now implementing. As far as the many "moral" issues about the President (abortion, stem cell research, gay marriage) those are what people would consider "cultural issues" although I have to admit that anything affecting the culture majorly is a major issue.
Kerry has a "unique" economic plan that works in theory, as long as the rich do not move their businesses overseas or the $200,000 plus earners do not donate a portion of their earned income to charities in order to avoid higher taxes. His foreign policy with Iran sounds perfect minus the Israeli (key factor here) warnings that if the US or UN do not do anything about Iran, they will. He does have an exit strategy for Iraq, which I give him credit for though. Kerry also has "credibility" around the world which Bush lacks, although Bush is the polarizing type (but was not Reagan and Clinton as well?).
Oh well I guess I will have to wait for the election. I work at the polls on November 2nd, so if you are in my state I might see you there. May the best man win!Selah!

I might have an invite to the inside so email me if you desire to be on the inside (although, I might give the first one to Rail Cat). Selah!

Today in the news Arnold Schwarzenegger "complained" that the president of the United States was hurting his sex life. Arnold who is married to a Kennedy, jokes that he has had difficulties with his marriage due to the political stress from the presidential candidates running. (Source)
In a more sadful tone today, according to a blog compadre of mine, (Andrew Hagen) Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has declared allegiance to Al Qaida two days after the US declared Tawid and Jihad terrorists groups which means sanctions and bank accounts in the US will be frozen as well as travel to the states limited. The US is seeking international sanctions and assets frozen from the UN in an attempt to rid the world of terror. With Coalition forces fighting uniting Islamic terrorists forces, this war on terror may be something that will last throughout several lifetimes. Selah! (check source below for ABC News story).

Speaking of popular demand, according to the Zeitgeist (see source link below) Jib Jab is quickly becoming the most searched out item on Google, followed by Chistopher Reeve (sadness for his passing) and Elin Nordegren (no clue who she is).
On google news today, there seems to be some in-fighting between the Angelican Church and the Episcopalian church (same denomination, just in two different nations) over the nomination of the Gay bishop Gene Robinson. It looks like trouble for the denomination, as many splits have already occurred with more in Africa coming soon. Click here for more info. Selah!
