On June 22, 1980 I coined the term/concept of "technocalypse," my vision of man's inevitable self-destruction by his own inventions and free will, devoid of the divine purpose that is postulated for the mythical Apocalypse; most of my art work and social concerns pertain to this theme. I have been writing a timeline history of the world from the Big Bang to the near future, since 1987.

Islamic Flag Over the White House

Today is Election Day 2008, and with only an hour left before our polls close here in Indiana, I want to get this on the record as a "you heard it here first." I first wrote this to a few friends about two months ago, but put off posting it to this blog until now:

I predict that soon after Obama wins(if) the election, or after being inaugurated as president, radical Islamist groups will declare they have achieved their long-stated goal of seeing an "Islamic flag flying over the White House." For over three years one group after another has expressed that as their goal (although there is no official Islamic or Muslim Flag), along with the downfall of the entire West. But not a peep has been heard from them since Obama declared his candidacy for president.

Obama has consistently written and said he is not a Muslim, that he is a Christian, and that he is a long-standing member of the church where he "was married and his wife and children were baptised." But researchers say he has never clearly stated that he has been baptised a Christian. Muslim doctrine holds that a man born of a Muslim father is Muslim, and that Muslims are not allowed to convert. Radicals can hold him to his still being a Muslim whether he has converted or not, sufficient for them to declare that his election victory places the Muslim or Islamic flag over the White House, for its obvious propaganda value.

The decades-long War on Terror and radical Islam does not need this kind of propaganda coup. Likewise, this is not the kind of pitfall the American presidency should be confounded by. So I am off to vote for John McCain before it's too late.

Obama knows that Muslim political leaders will warm to his diplomatic efforts as long as he doesn't blatantly insult their beliefs regarding conversion. We can be sure there is a host of fanatics poised to spring from their dark places the instant Obama is inaugurated, to declare a fatwa against him for his apostacy. Not enough traps have been set to prevent these beasts from invading civilization.

Size of a Trillion/ Reverse Outsourcing (Onshoring)

Letter to the Editor of Herald-Times, Bloomington, IN (publ. in Oct. 25, 2008 issue)

To the Editor,

Mike Leonard's report on the immensity of the quantity "one trillion" has inspired me to contribute to the subject. By my figuring, a stack of a million one dollar bills is 250 feet high, and a billion is 47.3 miles high, and a trillion is 47,300 miles high.

Today's national debt of $10 trillion would stack all the way from the earth to the moon and back again; and if stacked horizontally it would circle the earth 19 times. For $10 trillion, you or the Chinese could buy our entire 50 states at $4,203.00 per acre.

A radio signal or photon traveling at the speed of light would take 13.5 seconds to traverse the stacked $53 trillion of our "unfinanced" national debt.

Back on Earth, I'd like to suggest a way for our Mayor Kruzan to put himself and Bloomington in the spotlight, by being the first city to offer extraordinary economic incentives that exclusively target American companies abroad, to get them to move back to the U.S., to Bloomington, Ind.
