I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Pimping for Kerry

I just saw a still of "Osama bin Laden" from the ABC tape. The first thing that entered my mind was, "that's not bin Laden". I don't care if the CIA, ABC, NBC, CBS, OSS, MI5, or XYZ claim it is, it's not. Unfortuantely, I can't tell you why I know it's not, because even I'm not sure, but I KNOW that's not the real Osama bin Laden in that video.

This isn't the first time I've had these "flashes of belief". It's not even the 100th time. They come when they come, and they come about any subject in the world. I've had exactly TWO be wrong, and I'm not completely sure about one of those. The most compelling of these "visions" was about a girl I'd met only four days before - that I'd be happy for the rest of my life with her beside me. We've been married now for almost 39 years, and I still feel the same way.

The most frightening of these visions was one about our moving into a mobile home park in Enid, Oklahoma, in 1966. There was a spot next to the home of our best friends there, and Jean wanted to move into it. I had one of these episodes, and refused to even discuss it. Three months later, the mobile home that was parked there was totally destroyed - the only thing found from it was the marriage license of the couple that had lived there. Luckily, they weren't at home that day.

A tornado had NEVER STRUCK ENID before that one. Never in the town's recorded history that goes back to the earliers settlers in the area - the mid-1850's. Even the local Native Americans said the area had always been free from twisters.

There have been others - dozens and dozens of others. Most I've listened to, a few I haven't. I've always been sorry when I didn't listen, or let myself be overruled. I've been laughed at more than a couple of times when I've announced what I'd seen before. The most important one was when I announced the fall of the Soviet Union "within the next seven years" to my friends and co-workers in Germany, in 1988. He who laughs last...

I don't know if OBL is alive or dead. I do know that if he's alive, his ability to travel freely has ended, his ability to communicate with his "associates" is severely limited, and his ability to finance major operations against the United States or others has been curtailed by the actions of the United States and its allies.

I also don't believe that John Kerry will do as much to keep the lid on OBL and his global terror organiation as George Bush. Obviously, neither does OBL, which is why he's pimping for the election of John Kerry. I can't think of any better reason to vote for George Bush.
