With Children At War, Thank Goodness For CentraCom

Posted on 18 July 2014 by Howard Copelan

We had a nice telephone conversation with one of our sons this week.

It was a quick one since he is very busy setting his reserve unit on the Golan Heights.

But it was nice to hear his voice.

After we hung we said to our wife, ‘Thank G0d for CentraCom.’

Just how we got to that statement is the reason for this column.

For well over half a year we noticed a significant degradation in our phone service from Frontier Telephone.

First it was annoying then it became really annoying.

Calls would not go through. We would dial the number and get dead air. We complained and complained but the only call we received from Frontier was a sales pitch to switch our internet and a survey on how we would rate the corporation. Guess how we answered.

We also found out that it was just us. We did cheap fast little survey and discovered that everyone still on Frontier had the same problems.

The only thing keeping us with Frontier was that we believed our phone number. We have had it for about 25 years and were not inclined to change.

Finally things got so bad we made the decision to switch to digital phone service from CentraCom even if it meant giving up our number. What good is a number, we reasoned, if we could not call out and no one could call in?

The second worst thing about the past situation was that often when someone called they would get ring, and another ring, and lots of other rings. We didn’t hear them but for the people on the other side of line we must have looked like jerks.

We don’t need help in looking like a jerk.

So we called CentraCom to make the switch and wonder of wonders we got to keep our number. That is not even the best part. Our phones actually work now. When we make a call it rings on the first try!!! No more redialing and redialing and redialing until once we finally get through we forgot what we were calling about.

We have been with CentraCom for a month now and it is a dream, kind of like being in a first world country.

Which brings us to the very worst thing about Frontier phone service.

We could not connect with our kids!!!!

With three in Israel we have a special phone service where we dial an 800 number to get an outside line.

For the month before we went with CentraCom, it took us ten tries just to get to the 800 number. Since we made the switch one time is the charm.

We really don’t know why Frontier phone service sucked. Frankly we don’t care anymore.

Our phones work with CentraCom, we have the same number and it is even cheaper.

And when you have three kids and two grand kids overseas in a war all we can say and say again: ‘Thank G0d for CentraCom!!!’

The Computer Guy: Cleaning Your Computer 101

Posted on 18 July 2014 by Howard Copelan

quinhead

So while I worked on many computers this year, I am quite often asked to clean them up to reach the best performance.  For an example, I arrived at a customer’s house that obviously kept everything clean, so it was not like they were slobs.  What this customer wanted was to get her computer cleaned.  To enhance performance on the computer, I started going through the programs and files searching for ‘junk’ files that the customer would allow me to delete.  After I removed the trash files I proceeded to dust out the internal components of the computer.  The customer told me the she cleaned the inside of her computer every week, however once I removed the screws opening the case, I removed a massive dust ball.  The processor fan inside the computer was packed solid with dust, so much so that it surprised me that the computer could even work.  Once I removed the dust and put the computer back together, it was running significantly faster.  A quick check revealed that the customer’s computer had a virus, and after removing it the computer was running as good as new.  So there are a few things that you can do to maintain your computer that you don’t need to be a tech to do.

quinnadFor routine maintenance of your personal computer, you would want to follow these easy steps.  You should  first turn off any remaining processes that activate when installing applications on your computer.  Next is to empty trash when you don’t need it,and delete any programs that you haven’t been using for at least six months.  Then you should store all of your pictures, music, and any other media onto an external drive, not on your hard drive.   And last, open the case and thoroughly clean out any dust that builds up.  Performing these few small tasks once a week will keep you from having to bring in that expensive tech to perform them for you.  I am willing to take the time to show you how to take care of these simple tasks;  it will not be very expensive and you will be able to perform these tasks for yourself.

Already Damned

Posted on 11 July 2014 by Howard Copelan

Last night in Israel our daughter was awakened by an air raid siren. She picked up her two boys took to the safe room and waited for the all clear.

It came and they went back to bed.

At around the same time an Arab woman in Gaza was also awakened, this time by a cel phone call. It was her father who told her that he had been warned by the Jews that his house would be bombed.

So that young woman bundled up her kids went to her father’s house and along with a bunch of other relatives went on the roof of the house that was to be bombed. Seven were killed a few moments later.

There are things, even despicable things, that we can understand. Some men and women simply enjoy cruelty or are simply too afraid to speak out against cruelty. But that is just some kind of Old Testament Moloch child sacrificing style evil from which there is simply no understanding and no pardon.

These bearded things should not be condemned because the want to killed our grandchildren but because they so readily indeed eagerly kill their own.

We have read the Koran.

There really isn’t a whole lot in it prohibiting human shields.

There really isn’t a whole lot in the Bible either, both Old and New Testaments.

We did a word and phrase search.

There are two possible explanations for that one it was okay in ancient times to hide behind the innocent and the helpless while shooting arrows at the enemy or that it was simply unthinkable.

We tend to believe the latter simply because unlike nowadays ancient weapons were harder to wield and harder still with a kid in the way. We would also like to think that our ancestors were better than that.

Didn’t Abraham barter with G0d over the destruction of Sodom?

Apart from humans, young male chimps when they are being chased by a much bigger chimp have been seen to grab a baby chimp and hold it close. It often works this betting on the humanity of a chimpanzee.

But we don’t think the Arabs of Gaza are doing quite that.

We think they want dead babies. Ours and theirs.

We think that for them a baby martyr in full color and dead is the name of the game.

It generates world wide sympathy and cash donations.

The cost is minimal except for their souls.

They are damned.

A Declaration Heard Round The World

Posted on 04 July 2014 by Howard Copelan

We are publishing the Declaration of Independence for one simple reason.

Read it.

Even without knowing much about what was going on at the time it is truly a remarkable document.

But even a cursory education of American and European history renders a reader speechless at the breadth and scope contained in those few hundreds of words.

Yes at the end of the 18th century there were other and perhaps better writers or thinkers than Jefferson, Adams or Franklin.

But those great sentiments were given said in the polite salons of Europe over cups of hot chocolate.

The document printed on this page was not written for intellectuals only, but for the yeoman, the cobbler, the farmer and the printer who were at the time making war against a far better equipped, trained and fed adversary.

The Declaration was in itself an act of war and high treason.

And every man who signed it knew that if the British won as it looked like they were going to do back in 1776, the signatories would be tortured slowly to death.

There must have been a few who questioned the reason for it. The war had been going on for over a year and it was not at though a piece of parchment was going to win it or lose it.

Yet they signed it and published it all over the 13 states. The put the necks in the British noose and their property was forfeit.

More than a monument to Reason, the Declaration is a profile in courage.

One may now find fault with our founding fathers.

Most did have feet of clay.

But their imperfect natures only add luster to this document.

Declaration of Independence

Posted on 04 July 2014 by Howard Copelan

declaration-of-independence-1776

 

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united

States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

4th 2014 CentracomHe has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

4th 2014 EllisonIn every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection

between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Under The Rainbow

Posted on 27 June 2014 by Howard Copelan

Howard Copelan, Publisher

Twenty five years ago in a brilliant piece of reporting (hey we won an award for it) we infiltrated the Rainbow Gathering as an Israeli tourist who spoke no English only Hebrew and very broken French.

We reasoned it would be highly unlikely that there would be any Hebrew speakers there, and likely there would be somebody who took French in high school or college and it would explain our awful accent.

We were right about a dearth of Hebrew speakers but only very lucky regarding finding someone who spoke French. Like the rest of Americans the Rainbows have an aversion to learning foreign languages.

Indeed that became our story.

For all their claims to a new age of thinking and universality, the Rainbows were overwhelmingly White Anglo Saxon Protestants from the middle or upper classes with really stupid names like Harmony, Peace and Fruit Basket.

Fruit basket was a naked guy who we met while he was riding a bicycle that had no seat up hill. Truly it was an incredible feat.

But no less incredible than what people will share when they think the guy at fire can’t understand a word they are saying.

But most of what they were sharing was pretty boring.

A couple may have chucked their house for a tent but they complained that the tent next door was nicer.

One may reject monogamy and join a group marriage but cheat on the group with someone (s) else down the trail, the group gets really mad, chucks your things and gets a divorce.

Apart from the truth that you can take the people out of the suburbs but you can’t take the suburbs out of the people we also learned that underwear was a really good idea. Granted this was less than 20 years after the hay day of the hippie movement but gravity is a cruel mistress that some appendages simply cannot defy for long.

Most of the hippies were part timers who after the gathering would return to their relatively normal lives and their relatively normal jobs.

They were just funny.

Then there were the those for whom abject poverty was a way of life soothed by drugs and alcohol.

They were just sad and they were going to die and soon.

They were kept in their own little corner of the camp and watched very closely by the Gathering security force because they stole things.

There really isn’t much to steal at a Gathering and somehow that made it all more pathetic.

What does it say about you if your net worth can is counted in cans of tuna?

If a new way of thinking ever emerges to change us all, it won’t come from the Rainbow Family.

Heaven called our loved mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Mary Jane Robinson Lacy, home on June 21, 2014, on the first day of summer and longest day of the year, her favorite day, in Salt Lake City.

Mary was born in Auburn, Illinois on July 2, 1931 to Gilbert and Bessie Woolary Robinson.  Mary was born a twin with Margaret Joan Robinson Zorn and they were loving sisters and best friends.  She married her high school sweetheart, Earl Lacy, Jr.  April 1, 1948 in Elko, Nevada.  After marrying, she and Earl lived in Carbon County.  Together they raised eight children.

In 1965, Earl and Mary moved to Wendover, UT where Earl was a Wendover, Nevada sheriff.  Mary worked at the Jim’s, State Line, Silver Smith, Montego Bay, and Red Garter Casinos before retiring.  She worked as a flight attendant for State Line Flights.  She had many friends and enjoyed having conversations with everyone she met.  Everyone loved Mary and she always had a story to tell.  She enjoyed playing cards with her friends and grandchildren, while she insisted she had a royal flush.

Mary loved and found great joy in traveling with her senior citizen friends.  They traveled to many places of wonder and had experiences that were life changing.  A forever thanks to Juha Saastamoindn, Melvin Stewart, Pat Fasthorse and Ruth Spillman and family.  Their trips made a difference in her life.

Forever missing her love, humor and wit will be:  Children, Earl III (Glenda), Randy, and Robin (Terry Parker), Wendover, UT; Rick (Ginny), Lorelei Barrera (Mike), Green River, WY; Ron (Francis), Lyman, WY; Terry Linares (Kenneth), Grantsville, UT; 25 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild; sisters, Norma Boyer, Green River, WY; Betty Willhite, Springfield, ILL; and Sister-In-Law Alice Barker (Sheldon), Beaver Dam, AZ.  Survived by many other family members.  Waiting to meet her were her husband, youngest son Claude Scott, Grandson DeLon, Great Granddaughter Abigail Grace Rudy, her parents, her sisters Margaret and Wanda and brothers Jerry, Joey, William and Kenneth, and nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to give love and forever thanks to Earl and Glenda, Robin and Terry, and Randy for their special loving care during the last years of Mary’s life.  They truly sacrificed to keep her home and provided the best care and love.

Fixing Stupid

Posted on 20 June 2014 by Howard Copelan

The city of Mosul in Iraq was defended by more than 35,000 army troops and para-military police. They had over 100 tanks or armored cars dozens if not hundreds of artillery pieces and air craft ranging from Apache attack choppers to F-16’s.

800 fighters from an Al Qaeda group show up last week in some pick-up trucks and the Iraqis run away.

Let us repeat a force of 800 lightly armed fighters defeated a force of over 35,000.

If just one tank platoon had held their ground the rebels would have been wet spots in the sand.

The question of ‘Who lost Iraq?’ Is therefore very simple, the Iraqis did.

They didn’t lose it they threw it away along with their honor.

There is simply no helping a country that fields an army such as that.

Game over.

The other question ‘What should the US do now?’ Is also easy to answer- Nothing.

No boots on the ground, no air strikes no nothing.

Let the Iranians who are only slightly more civilized that the monsters marching on Baghdad spend their blood and treasure and only their blood and treasure on stopping them.

If Syria is any standard to judge the war between Sunnis nut job and Shiite nut job in Iraq will last years if not decades. Whoever emerges as the ‘winner’ will lose to a puppy in a fair fight.

Ten years ago we would not be so laissez faire but that was before North American oil hit a bumper crop.

Iraq, Iran heck the whole screwed up Islamic world really doesn’t command the world’s economy as it once did.

If Iraq falls the price of a barrel of crude will go up, but not by much and certainly not enough to merit the loss of even one drone let alone an American service man or contractor.

The sad part if one is a member of that sick cult known as Islam is that it didn’t have to be this way.

Since oil was discovered in the sands of Arabia in the first part of the 20th century the Middle East has imbibed trillions of dollars and wasted the vast bulk of it.

Instead of building schools they bought bombs and bomb delivery systems. Instead of making the desert bloom they turned it red.

With less than a thousandth of the yearly profits from oil they could have bought a space program and planted the green flag of Islam on the moon.

Instead over a quarter of the adult men and over 50 percent of the women of the half a billion Muslim Arabs are illiterate and they are likely to stay that way.

It is a sorry epitaph for a part of the world that was the cradle of civilization but how does the old saying go? You can’t fix stupid.

Of course not all Arabs are psychotic murderers some of them are quite nice.

But put it this way just how successful would a gang of even heavily armed rapists murderers would be in America even in a civil war?

The first time they crucified someone would probably be their last.

Americans of all stripes and persuasion would not tolerate it.

And the reason for that is simple, our culture is better.

Yes we have our nut jobs, we just don’t make them leaders.

And now we don’t need Islamic oil.

So let’s leave them to their misery.
