John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs.  The farmer kept records, and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced.

That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.  Each bell had a different tone, so John could tell from a distance which rooster was performing.  Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch; a very fine specimen he was too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch' bell hadn't rung at all!  John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing.  The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring.  He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.  The result, the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize, but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying  attention.

I'm using google to flush out the spam bots.  In most cases they use the same userid so they pop up on various forums.  If I can't verify it's a spam bot, and I find nothing on the e-mai address on google, then I personally e-mail the new registrant.   

Might help if I get a side-bar e-mail from the new registrant letting me know they are from OP.

This guy set up a user id with a valid e-mail address, activated it, then signed on to our forum, and started posting.  He's not on the list of members because we axed him. We had the forum set up so that a new user could activate their account by themselves as long as they had a valid e-mail address.  This eliminated spam bots, but not the creeps.  Right now new forum members are not allowed until we get the forum permissions set so they can't send out PMs like this again.

A SMALL cloth is draped over each digit of a giant hand, each finger puppet
inscribed with a symbol. One is a dollar sign: a reference to international
capital in all its manifestations. There is also the sign of the Masons,
since for centuries that secret society has been caricatured as insidious
and manipulative, without recognizing, perhaps, that its own strings were
being pulled.
There is the hammer and sickle, symbolizing a Communist world that no longer
possesses fearsome power but was once, apparently, under the sway of an even
greater master. The cross is there, for the church has supposedly been
enslaved by the same forces. And there is a swastika, for even Nazism,
according to this particular vision, arose out of the deep maneuverings of a
group prepared to sacrifice six million of its own so its larger aims might
be realized in the creation of an imperial state.
And controlling them all is the hand, its palm inscribed with a Jewish star.

Such is the cover art for a Spanish-language edition of "The Protocols of
the Elders of Zion" published last year in Mexico.
Mexico is not alone. Look around the small space allotted to a new
exhibition opening today at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum here
? "A Dangerous Lie: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" ? and the intensity
and extent of agreement are striking. For more than a century "The
Protocols" has made its way into many languages, selling untold numbers of
copies, portraying Jews as demonic schemers.
Said to be the minutes of a secret council of Jews discussing their plot for
world domination, this slim volume, first published in Russia in 1905, has
become a nearly sacred text for political and religious movements ranging
from American nativism and German Nazism to Arab Islamicism.
Henry Ford was captivated by the idea of Jewish financiers plotting to
undermine the United States; he became a proselytizer for "The Protocols" in
his newspaper, The Dearborn Independent.
<http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/h/adolf_hitler/i
ndex.html?inline=nyt-per> Hitler, an admirer of Ford, was introduced to "The
Protocols" by the Nazi ideologue Alfred Rosenberg, and cited it in "Mein
Kampf." More than 23 editions of "The Protocols" were published by the Nazi
party over 20 years.
During the last half-century, it has also become a canonical text in the
Islamic world. One edition on display here, printed in Pakistan in 1969, was
presented by King Faisal of Saudi Arabia to state visitors in the 1970's,
its jacket showing a snake, representing the Jews, wrapped around the
crescent of Islam while casting its glance over the entire Eastern
Hemisphere. Another edition is an Arabic translation of "The Protocols" that
was posted on the Palestinian State Information Services Web site until
protests led to its removal last year.
Now "The Protocols" would presumably be affirmed with less embarrassment:
the Palestinian Authority is presently controlled by the militant Islamist
organization
<http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/h/hamas/i
ndex.html?inline=nyt-org> Hamas, whose 1988 covenant could almost be read as
a rewrite of "The Protocols." "Our struggle against the Jews is very great
and very serious," that covenant says. "With their money, they took control
of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses,
broadcasting stations and others," it declares of Jews.
"They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting
consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam," it says,
asserting that Jews were behind the French and Russian revolutions, the
Freemasons, the Rotary Clubs, imperialism, the two world wars, the
<http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/u/united_
nations/index.html?inline=nyt-org> United Nations, the drug trade and
alcoholism. It cites a source: "Their plan is embodied in 'The Protocols of
the Elders of Zion.' "
Unfortunately, this exhibition, organized by Daniel Greene, while
illuminating as far as it goes, doesn't do more than briefly refer to that
charter. It also only cursorily summarizes the perspective of the various
editions of "The Protocols" on display. And the text of "The Protocols"
itself can be read only on two pages of an open book.
Evidence that "The Protocols" was forged is scarcely more detailed, revealed
primarily in a wall-size reproduction of part of the 1921 Times of London
expos? that demonstrated that the book was cribbed from an 1864 polemic by
the French writer Maurice Joly attacking Napoleon III: "Dialogue in Hell
Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu." The words of Joly's villain,
Machiavelli, were later put into the mouths of conspiratorial Jews.
But what an opportunity was missed in not doing more with this exhibition!
For the tale of how this volume was forged ? which only recently came to
light with the release of Soviet-era files, suggesting that it was written
by Mathieu Golovinski, a Russian exile living in France in 1898 ? is
remarkable in itself. So are the peculiarities of its sources, which also
include an 1868 novel, "Biarritz" by Hermann Goedsche, which describes a
nocturnal meeting of rabbis in a Prague cemetery, where they discuss plans
for world domination. So a royalist Russian used the fantastical imaginings
of a German and the antiroyalist text of a Frenchman imitating the arguments
of an Italian, in order to defame Jews.
The text itself also demands more analysis. One reason for its resiliency
despite its demonstrably faked origins is that it is not just another
anti-Semitic tract. Its intellectual trappings reflect something profound
about anti-Semitism itself.
Conspiracy theorists abound in all arenas, of course, and there is surely
something satisfying about seeing varied sources of villainy so swiftly
click into place as manifestations of a single master plan. Advocates of
"The Protocols" are undeterred by evidence that the book is forged: it
reveals, they say, a higher truth.
That truth, though, is not really about Jews. Reading the text itself (which
can be found at  <http://ddickerson.igc.org/protocols.html>
ddickerson.igc.org/protocols.html), one is shocked not at its anti-Semitism,
but at its knotty, pseudophilosophic assertions; "The Protocols" really is
ersatz Machiavelli. It is astounding that something so difficult has been so
appealing.
"Men with bad instincts are more in number than the good," states its
opening sally; they are "beasts of prey" who can only be governed by
cunning. Their greatest delusion, asserts the purportedly Jewish narrator,
is their growing belief in liberalism. But political freedom is a "bait,"
being offered to them by Jews, who are using it to undermine the traditional
order. Soon societies everywhere, the narrator says, will fall prey to the
"despotism of capital, which is entirely in our hands."
A catalog of threatening modernity is being boasted of: liberal rights
proliferate, faith falters, commerce rules, citizens are seduced by
"corruption and luxury." "Think carefully of the successes we arranged for
Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzscheism," the Jews in "The Protocols" say, and look
what "disintegrating" effect these ideas have had. These Jews claim to be
undermining the world with "disenchantments" in order to take it over.
This forgery encapsulates the image of the cosmopolitan Jew as the
unprincipled molder of modernity.
But modernity and liberalism are never really meant seriously by these Jews;
the ideas are manipulations, fabrications. In addition these Jews sound as
if they could confirm
<http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/a/al_qaed
a/index.html?inline=nyt-org> Al Qaeda or Islamist movements in their
indictments against the West. The Jews of "The Protocols," in their
determination to dissolve national boundaries in pursuit of power and
profit, could also as easily be associated with globalization, inspiring
anti-Americanism as much as anti-Semitism. "The Protocols" feeds into a wide
variety of resentments and longings for a premodern world.
But the really astonishing thing is this: These Jews, in secretly planning
to overturn the very forces of liberalism and modernity they have just
created are doing just what their anti-Semitic nemeses desire. That is not
the only point of agreement. Look at the Jews' approach in "The Protocols."
They believe in absolute power. They will brook no opposition. They will use
the rights and values of liberalism to undermine it, exploiting its
weaknesses. They will be patient and ruthless and unrelenting.
Hitler once said he used similar techniques for similar ends. He did. So do
the Islamists. If "The Protocols" has found such resonance among
anti-Semites across the world, it is partly because, in its villainous Jews,
they see images of what they yearn to be.

Another reason to send the UN packing
Iran Elected to UN Disarmament Commission
By Julie Stahl
CNSNews.com Jerusalem Bureau Chief
April 17, 2006

Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Under threat of United Nations Security Council sanctions for its own nuclear program, Iran has been elected to a vice-chair position on the U.N. Disarmament Commission, whose mission includes preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.

The commission's deliberations began last Monday and are scheduled to continue until April 28. On the first day of the commission meeting, Iran along with Uruguay and Chile was elected as one of three vice-chairs.

It happened on the same day that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad promised his people "good news" about the country's nuclear program.

The following day, Iran announced that it had managed to enrich uranium, a key ingredient in the production of a nuclear bomb.

On Monday, former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said that his country would continue to enrich uranium, and dismissed the idea that the U.S. might attack nuclear facilities in Iran.

"We are certain that Americans will not attack Iran because the consequences would be too dangerous," Rafasanjani was quoted as telling the Kuwaiti parliament.

Dr. Dore Gold, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. said that electing Iran to aleadership position on the UN Disarmament Commission was like asking the "cat to guard the milk."

"Clearly the Iranians have an interest in establishing disarmament rules that protect their clandestine nuclear weapons program," said Gold, author of Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos.

"For the last decade and a half, Iran has appointed a very large diplomatic mission to the U.N. and has sought to obtain appointments to as many U.N. bodies as possible," said Gold in a telephone interview.

It is not a surprise, therefore, that Iran would find a place at the table of even the most sensitive committees, he said.

According to Gold, the various commissions at the U.N. establish the "background noise" and "international norms" that are adopted for dealing with problems worldwide.

"They have a way of penetrating the judgments of the U.N. secretariat and other U.N. bodies," he said.

The Disarmament Commission's new chairman, Joon Oh from South Korea, said prior to the group's meeting that it was not intended to be an isolated event but should be considered an integral part of worldwide disarmament efforts.

According to a release on the Disarmament Commission's website, the agenda items include recommendations for achieving nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation and "practical confidence-building measures in the field of conventional weapons."

The commission was established by a U.N. General Assembly resolution in 1952 to pursue "effective international control of atomic energy" and make sure that atomic energy was used only for peaceful purposes.

While Iran's election to the commission is not a "decisive development," Gold said, it is "one link" in the chain that helps Iran use multi-lateral organizations to serve its interests.

Prof. Anne Bayefsky, who edits the Eye on the U.N. website, quoted U.N.
Undersecretary-General for Disarmament Affairs, Nobuaki Tanaka, as saying that the commission "played a unique role" with "the advantage of being a fully universal deliberative body."

"This is the U.N. fiction, which brings us close to nuclear war with each passing day," Bayefsky said. "The allusion is to universal democracy, though the majority of voters is non-democratic and include thugs, racists and war-mongers."

As tensions grow over the situation in Iran, Washington has not ruled out the idea of a military option in dealing with Iran, though it has downplayed the idea.

The U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, recently referred Iran to the Security Council, where the U.S. is pushing for sanctions to be leveled against the Islamic Republic.

But Gold said that if the U.N.'s dealings with Iraq set a precedent for its dealings elsewhere in the world, then it is not likely that the U.N. would be an effective body in dealing with Iran.

"The U.N. has long ago forfeited its role as an international body safeguarding international peace and security and this is just the latest proof of why the U.N. doesn't work," Gold said of Iran's election to vice chair the Disarmament Commission.

Iran says its nuclear development is for a civilian energy program but the U.S., Israel and other Western nations believe Iran is really developing nuclear weapons.

The Institute for Science and International Security, a U.S. think tank, released satellite images on Sunday showing that Iran had expanded its uranium enrichment site at Isfahan and has reinforced its underground site at Natanz.

London's Sunday Times quoted unnamed Iranian officials as saying that Iran had recruited and trained 40,000 suicide bombers, who were ready to attack American and British targets.

"We are ready to attack American and British sensitive points if they attack Iran's nuclear facilities," said Dr. Hassan Abbasi, head of the Center for Doctrinal Strategic Studies in the Revolutionary Guards.

Subject: Three management lessons

Here are three management lessons for the day. Situation: An eagle was
sitting on a tree and doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and
asked, "Can I also sit on my ass, like you, and do nothing?" The eagle
answered, "Sure, why not." So the rabbit sat on the ground, below the
eagle, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox jumped on the rabbit and ate
it.

Management Lesson One: To be sitting on your ass doing nothing, you must
be sitting very high up.



Situation:  A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to get to
the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I don't have the
energy." "Why don't you nibble on my manure droppings?" replied the
bull. "They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked at the manure
and found it actually gave him strength to reach the lowest branch of
the tree. The next day, after pecking more dung, he reached the second
branch. Finally, after the fourth day, the turkey was proudly perched at
the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot him out
of the tree.

Management Lesson Two:  Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't
keep you there.



Situation:  A bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold that
the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While lying
there, a cow came by and dropped dung on it. As the frozen bird lay in
the pile of dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was
actually thawing him out. He lay there all warm and happy and soon began
to sing for joy.  A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to
investigate.  Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the
pile of cow dung and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Management Lesson Three: (1) Not everyone who shits on you is your
enemy. (2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend. (3)
When you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut.

84  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / November Gathering Of The Pack on: October 20, 2005, 10:59:13 PM
A Howl of Greeting:

 The rhythm of the seasons is with us and its time for the "Winter Dog Brothers Gathering of the Pack".

On behalf of the Council of Elders of the Dog Brothers, Dog Brothers Inc. Martial Arts hereby cordially invites you to its "Dog Brothers Winter Gathering of the Pack" at 11:00 AM on Sunday, November 20, 2005 at the RAW Gym in El Segundo to conclude when the fighters are done.

 Many of you may remember our Gatherings held in the park in  Hermosa Beach, which, although they were hosted at considerable expense, were always free to you our friends, our guests.  However with a private facility involved we now need to charge admission of $10.  We ask that you still consider yourselves to be our friends and our guests.   In this context we ask that you respect our wishes in the matter of Video.

It is very simple:

 NO VIDEO CAMERAS, NO DUAL PURPOSE CAMERAS (i.e. with both still photo and video capabilities).  THIS MATTER IS OF IMPORTANCE TO US!   And, if you see someone videoing, please don't let them abuse our hospitality-please let us know.

 As always, you may take photographs for personal, non-commercial use PROVIDED you give us a complete set of the ones you take.  Thanks to the increasing numbers of you who actually remember and bother to do this! It is very much appreciated!


 The Magic Words:

 The MAGIC WORDS: "No judges, no referees, no trophies. One rule only: Be friends at the end of the day. This means our goal is that no one spends the night in the hospital. Our goal is that everyone leaves with the IQ with which they came. No suing no one for no reason for nothing no how no way! Real Contact Stickfighting is Dangerous and only you are responsible for you. Protect yourself at all times. All copyright belongs to Dog Brothers Inc. CA law applies."

 This matter of accepting the risk applies to those of you in the crowd too. For example, sticks, and fights for that matter, may go flying into the crowd.  Parents should consider things like this in deciding whether a child
is old enough to bring along and/or deciding on from where to observe the event.  For example, sitting on the heavy bags ringing the fighting area is a really risky idea for a child (or adult for that matter).  If a stick or a fight comes careening your way-get out of the way!

At each Gathering there is a different focus.  For the knife fights, there will be some surprise rules.  And for the stick (and other weapons too!) we encourage people to hide knives and bring them into play during the fight.  

Remember that you may fight with weapons other than a stick if you can find someone willing to go against you.  Please consider stick and knife (aluminum blades OK with us) fights, staff fights, and anything else.  In order to more deeply explore certain variables, fighters may agree to "no grappling" rules.  In staff fights, the fighters may wear wrestling type ear guards under the fencing masks.
 
There is no charge for fighters but FIGHTERS MUST PRE-REGISTER, even if they have fought before.  The Fighter's Registration form can be found on the website.  If you are a member of the Dog Brothers tribe an email or phone call will suffice.  For all Fighter Registration matters, please contact Cindy at Prettykitty@dogbrothers.com 310-540-6853.  You are not pre-registered until your name appears on the list of registered fighters on the website!!!

If you have fought before and show up without having pre-registered there will be a $20 fee.  We REALLY, REALLY, REALLY don't like having to deal with this on such a busy day so please do both you and us a favor and pre-register.  If you haven't fought before and you show up without having pre-registered, you will not be allowed to fight.  This will be ruthlessly enforced!

Thanks to Ally Yang for the photos.


It should be noted that except for the first few group photos all the photos currently in the gallery were shot by Ally and made web-ready in PhotoShop by Gints.  I've received a bunch more but they need to be worked over in PhotoShop.  Shooting photography at R1 is always a challenge due to poor lighting.  Ally and Gints spent a lot of time working on this set and we really appreciate it!

A SPECIAL THANKS to ALLY and GINTS!

97  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / An Irish Toast just in time for Saint Patrick's Day on: March 16, 2005, 01:14:26 PM
John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, "Here's to spending the rest
of me life, between the legs of me wife!"

That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night!
He went home and told his wife, Mary, "I won the prize for the best
toast of the night."

She said, "Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?"

John said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, Sitting in church
beside me wife."

"Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!" Mary said.

The next day, Mary ran into one of John's drinking buddies on the
street corner.

The man chuckled leeringly and said, "John won the prize the other
night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary."

She said, "Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised meself. You know,
he's only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep,
and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come.."

About the DVDs... (Marc will have to answer the questions about what else is in the works, AND the techi question regarding the first series)

All our DVDs are being produced in NTSC All Region.  No plans to produce in PAL.  We've tested this DVD format in Europe on several players and not had a problem.

The DVDs are remastered and include bonus footage.
