Do your DD. This is a classic case of one very hard working man, Bruce Caldwell, the CEO who started out of his garage and utilized / farmed out his production to the point where he now owns the prodiction equipment as I understabd it..

In addition some $$$$$$$4 investors have come into the picture and , imo, things look bright. I do not like quick spikes, just nice and steady graph that go up.

Patienece has served me well for the past 2 years as 0.01
has seen .10+.

I hope that answers your question. If not. Ask again

mr copia if you have an open mind i will tell you that either this story is fiction or the islamic imam was not very eductated. the only reason presented in islam to fight is in self defense and to thwart opression. please dont take my word for it and do some research on this topic.

Simply re-posting what was sent to me, that is documented in the minutes of the meeting. May I suggest to you to do your rsearch. It should be easy enough for you to find out rather than arbitraily dispute what were not my words.

THOUGHT and true story:
Allah or Jesus?
by Rick Mathes

Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their belief systems.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.

After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: "Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of
the world. And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven. If that;s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?"

There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"

I responded, "So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to Heaven. Is that correct?"

The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied, "Yes."

I then stated, "Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to Heaven!"

The Imam was speechless.

I continued, "I also have problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me. Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah who tels you to kill me in order to go to Heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you
because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be with me?"

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

Senders words: Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with Rick's way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslim's beliefs. I think everyone in the US should be required to read this,
but with the liberal justice system, liberal media, and the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized. Please pass this on to all your email contacts.

This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well known leader in prison ministry.

thanks for confirming the authenticity of the article. but as i said its content was totally wrong and that is what i meant by "doing research". this is what the Quran itself has to say about this topic:
English Translation of Ayah/Verse 2:62


Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Jihad - literally, "striving" or "struggle," although it is often used in the theopolitical context of a "holy war." It must be either defensive or to right a wrongdoing. Its truer meaning is subjective and psychological, not objective and political; thus it is said that the "lesser jihad" is the external war with an agressor, while the "greater jihad" is the internal war with oneself, i.e., to be a better Muslim.

usc.edu
It is an Arabic word the root of which is Jahada, which means to strive for a better way of life. The nouns are Juhd, Mujahid, Jihad, and Ijtihad. The other meanings are: endeavor, strain, exertion, effort, diligence, fighting to defend one's life, land, and religion.

Jihad should not be confused with Holy War; the latter does not exist in Islam nor will Islam allow its followers to be involved in a Holy War. The latter refers to the Holy War of the Crusaders.

Jihad is not a war to force the faith on others, as many people think of it. It should never be interpreted as a way of compulsion of the belief on others, since there is an explicit verse in the Qur'an that says:"There is no compulsion in religion" Al-Qur'an: Al-Baqarah (2:256).

Jihad is not a defensive war only, but a war against any unjust regime. If such a regime exists, a war is to be waged against the leaders, but not against the people of that country. People should be freed from the unjust regimes and influences so that they can freely choose to believe in Allah.

Not only in peace but also in war Islam prohibits terrorism, kidnapping, and hijacking, when carried against civilians. Whoever commits such violations is considered a murderer in Islam, and is to be punished by the Islamic state. during wars, Islam prohibits Muslim soldiers from harming civilians, women, children, elderly, and the religious men like priests and rabies. It also prohibits cutting down trees and destroying civilian constructions.

Hello Sting! It has been a long time since we've posted to each other. Last buy/accum was ESXS.
I've slowly accumulated most of my LT favorites on dips and have for the most part stopped "flipping".

Good luck on MASG and SGI

Funny story about a guy who had himself cryo-suspended for 10,000 years. Before they dunked him in the liquid Nitrogen, he stopped by the bank and bought a CD for $500.

10,000 years later scientists re-awaken him. He immediately finds a pay phone. (By then, cellphone frequencies have been all used up.) He calls the bank to check his balance. They tell him 50 million. Delerious with joy, he hangs up but as he steps away the pay phone rings. He answers. It's the operator. She says "That will be an extra $500,000 please."

The silence of your voice
by Narissaa Robinson

love is so sneaky, it crept into my heart so softly i did not realize until we came to part. it was then when love suddenly grew claws and without warning clamped around my heart. so stunned by this attack i look up at your sweet face as a tear rolls slowly down my cheek and into the crack of my lips. my taste buds recognize the salty bitterness but my mind is so utterly sick of it. you're lying to my right the only thought on my mind this whole day was this moment and to hear what you had to say. your hand slowly sweeps across the pillow case on accident, you then notice the dampness my eyes have left behind. You turn and look at me with those eyes i know so well. Watching as i roll my toughen across my lip to try and hide my tears. I'm lost in your deep blue eyes and try to crack a smile to pretend I'm ok. but on your face is a look of total confusion, you don't now what to do, you don't know what to say...you then open the door:my heart melts. my mouth dropped to the floor. I'm wishing you'd shout out "wait" as my palm hits the door...nothing. i longed to say "i love you" but was scared of your reply. Theres nothing for me to do now, so my lips will say goodbye. but my heart knows that its a total lie. so i will trick my heart into playing pretend with me until the day i die.
