A New Year

A new year for the world and this blog. As promised, no more scantily-clad women (unless they knew Jack Ruby). Time to get serious. To tell you the truth I had thought about giving up this blog but I have decided to give it another year.

What do we have to look forward to this year? According to a recent poll 25% Americans believe that Jesus will return this year.

According to this story, in the not terribly reliable WorldNetDaily, Jesus is coming back but he will not be alone:

An official state media website in Iran posted a message heralding the coming of the Shiite messianic figure, Imam Mahdi, noting he could arrive with Jesus by the spring equinox.

"Imam Mahdi (may God hasten his reappearance) will appear all of a sudden on the world scene with a voice from the skies announcing his reappearance at the holy Ka'ba in Mecca," the message says.

Needless to say, Jesus and the Mahdi have come not to bring peace but a sword.

My predictions for 2007:

Neither Jesus nor the Mahdi will return. President Bush will not be impeached. Bush will not attack Iran (although I wouldn't bet the rent on this one.) Iraq will become very bad. Iraq is very bad now, I know, but I mean very bad compared to now.

Gary, I must ask you to rethink the scantily-clad women policy. You were always bolder than I in that regard.

And you MUST keep blogging, for more than a year.

I can live with the "unless they knew Jack Ruby" caveat on scantily-clad women. And I think you contribute greatly to the knowledge of those of us who attempt to connect the dots to make sense of this world and its goings-on. I read your blog information with zest.......THEN look at the pics.

I agree with Joseph, though I must admit that your spurious pornyfication of posts never actually had any effect on my decision to linger about here as oft as I have. Nonetheless, I'm with you on all of your predictions but one.

Keep the god stuff a comin', cowboy

Please don´t stop blogging, you are an excellent resources and my comments were not intended to ´control´your posting habits in any way shape or form. I love your ´Secret History´ blog.

Here´s a little taste of some of my own ´secret history´ research I´ve been doing recently. It includes excellent archival photos I discovered in an archive in Luxemburg:

Idi Amin

When Avril Lavigne opened a newspaper on January 25th, 1971, she was confronted with two headlines. The first declared that her estranged husband had been found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to death. The second, in a smaller type face, told of a coup in Uganda, and of Idi Amin – the wild man of Africa – seizing the presidency. Seeing these two headlines together was like awaking from a dream for Avril, and almost immediately, she shed her filthy hippy rags and went shopping, replenishing her wardrobe of fine evening wear. Quietly, she filed for divorce, and set off for Africa.

Avril idolised Amin as the opposite of her previous husband, seeing in him everything that was desirable in a man. She arrived in Kampala in April of 1971, and pursued him with a vengeance. Amin, while intrigue by the possibility of having for himself a “little white girl”, was concerned that they had nothing in common - Avril struggled feigning interest in Amin’s primary hobbies, racing cars and boxing. Eventually however, they found common ground in the mutual love of Disney Cartoons.

The major repeating disagreement in the Amin-Lavigne household was the issue of Israel. As a Jew, Avril naturally supported the agenda of the Holy Land, where Idi actively despised it. His support of the Palestine Liberation Organisation and his alliance with Libya eventually led to their separation in December 1974. As a parting gift, Avril gave Amin a collection of various military medals that she had accumulated over the years from her various husbands, and he treasured them always, having some of his jackets lengthened to accommodate wearing them all at once.

Keep up the xcellent work.
