What link Nude dancers, Graduate studies, and city of Norman?  Introspection

City of Norman (Summer 1975, chapter 22 of autobiography)

The program coordinator for advanced English decided that I didn’t need any further English study. But since the dues were paid, I had to finish one month.

 I learned how to navigate the library and hunt for the appropriate manuscripts and enter the classroom bare feet, as I have noticed American students doing.  Wrong behavior: Foreigners had no such rights of freely entering classroom not wearing sandals, and I was admonished by the ugly, skinny Jewish lady teacher never to show any further disrespect.

One of the teachers was amazed that I used the term “petrified” in my essay; he had no idea that I mastered the French language and my vocabulary was very formal and Latin rooted: I would learn the slang and the American expressions in due time.

I rented a room with another Jordanian older student at a house, two blocks away from the university.  The Jordanian student was accepted in San Antonio for graduate studies in economics.  The house belonged to a tall and skinny widow and she lived at the house; the next summer I learned that she married a zealot Moslem Syrian graduate student in chemical engineering; she was to wear long tunic and a scarf.

The blue-eyed Syrian student was renting a room that summer, and he was very aloof: I had no idea that he was the extremist type until later:  I was told that he used to spread his praying rag in class before exams.

I enrolled for a two-week program to lean swimming and that is how I got hooked into swimming three times a week for many years. I think that these two weeks were kind of initiation to befriending with water, since I was no fish in the water at the age of 25.  

My first project, as I relocated to another city, was to find a covered and heated swimming pool around my residence.

The next summer of 1976, I participated in aiding a missionary organization, specializing in linguistic, since I knew the Arabic language (I am under the impression that I used formal words instead of the Lebanese slang, especially when it comes to food); the organization rented a flat in a university building during summer vacation. I was paid two dollars per hour.

 

Graduate studies: The industrial engineering program

I enrolled in the graduate MS program at the University of Oklahoma at Norman in the fall of 1975.  At that time, the administrators in the USA universities were flexible, had larger control in their positions and were friendly with foreigners. The Jewish Dean of the department, Dr. Kumin, valorized all my math, physics and chemistry courses and I was left with just four undergraduate courses to finish my BS in Industrial engineering, as prerequisite courses before I take on courses in the graduate program next semester. 

Back in Lebanon, courses in Physics did not require any projects to do for each course and thus, I felt overwhelmed and totally inexperienced with these kinds of “bothering” projects in engineering. 

Although I learned to program in FORTRAN in Lebanon, I was not that familiar with computer hardware architecture.  I believe that I mostly copied parts of my textbook and another book that I borrowed from the main library as substitute to an individual reflection.  Gary Capshaw, a last year PhD student, was very lenient with me and gave me an “A”.

The industrial engineering program didn’t match my perception and expectation. My expectation of a hand on program was totally lacking; it was merely more of the theoretical concepts with less mathematical formulas to handle.  Except for the stochastic courses, even the operations research courses required simple basic math, a fact that suited me because I was getting wary of the deterministic aspects in the physic and chemistry courses. 

The truth is, however you restrict your research in Industrial Engineering to deal with clean-cut equations, there is no avoiding the human elements operating in industries and thus, most formulas are lacking the deterministic values so cherished in the other engineering fields that deal with inanimate matters.

I enrolled during summer for a two-week swimming lessons and spent the next summers most of my afternoons at the university swimming pool; the advisor for my thesis Dr. Bob Foote, a Zionist non-Jew, who read most of the editorials and student’s opinions in the university daily, including my articles, used to see me frequently in the swimming pool and thus, concluded that I was more interested in the beautiful naked women than in studying.

Nude dancers 

I had my first experience with nude bars, where beauties danced on stage, completely naked.  The Walter Mitty bar was around the corner of my dorm, which  was reserved mostly for foreign students.  My friend Ramez was the RA of the dorm and he was studying History of Sciences, simply because the university library possessed very ancient manuscripts on Arabic sciences.  Why? Ramez could barely read modern Lebanese Arabic newspapers, much less classical Arabic! 

There was this lovely brunette of Maria, a nude dancer.  I sent a letter to my cousin Jihad telling him that Maria looked like his wife Nada.  I am not sure how Jihad took it.  Nada should have appreciated it; shouldn’t she?  I know that years later, Jihad reminded me of receiving this letter.  Eight years later, I returned to Norman for a PhD and Maria was still living in Norman. She was working at the university Power Plant and wearing regulation yellow helmet.  Nude dancing is far harder than even fashion modeling:  In no time you are put to pasture.

I told Maria that I liked her when she used to dance totally naked; she appreciated that I still recalled her.  We had a date and she showed up wearing high-healed long boots and tight, very tight Jeans.  She used to take my arm when strolling and she didn’t attempt to fool around with men in the bars we made the tour of.

Maria showed me her apartment a few days later and I met her sister (maybe half-sister who didn’t resemble Maria). I also visited her at the hospital after her surgery for infected uterus; she was wearing regulation hospital long shirt showing her buttocks. As Maria returned home she invited me to her apartment and asked me if I liked to share a joint of marijuana.  I never learn from my experiences or anything from life:  I told her how marijuana affects me after just two puffs.  Maria told me then that it would be useless to get any further dates. 

There was this tall, skinny, and blond girl dancing nude.  She used to set fire to her pubis every night.  Obviously, she had no pubis hair and would never be able to confirm if her white blond hair was original.  I once asked her to leave together.  I think that she said “Yes”.  I waited till the bar closed and she had left.  I was a very shy guy and I wished that the rules would be that she would sit by my side, take my arm and drag me out.  I still don’t know the rule of asking a nude dancer to actually leave with me: if you truly do know, please forward it.

Worst of all, patronizing this nude dancing bar exposed me to my first cigarette smoking.  I was 26 of age and had never smoke before.  I am now nicotine addicted.  More on that later and the few times with marijuana.

China: the main Capitalist partner to the US (January 11, 2009)

 

            “Communist” China is the largest accumulator of dollars with a reserve of two trillions or two third of its GNP. With such a reserve China is currently the main capitalist partner to the USA; China has interest that the dollar does not devalue, that its currency the Yuan does not increase in value which would make Chinese products less competitive, and that the financial system does not break down.  “Communist” China is catching up quickly on Japan for the purchase of Treasury Bonds, a way of lending the US the needed cash to resume a Capitalist financial policy.  China is not only the factory of the world but also the prime banker to the US.

 

            The Chinese Wen Jiabao PM stated after the financial crash of Wall Street: “We have got to unite. In these difficult times, China has joined the USA.  We believe that our financial rescue will aid at stabilizing the economy and world financial system and thus, preventing a major chaos.  I believe that cooperation is indispensable”.   China is expecting full cooperation of the US in erecting a new Capitalist system and it has more muscles than the European Union in enforcing the re-structuring of the financial system that would guarantee its investments in the USA that amount by the trillions of dollars.

 

            Many of Chinese investments in the USA are in the red after the crash.  The US multinationals that China invested heavily in have been saved with Chinese influx; Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were saved too.  Lehman Brothers was not spared for reasons.  The Bush Junior Administration had selected Lehman Brothers to artificially increase oil prices to $150 through speculation in order to hurt the ever voracious China in oil demands.  China reacted vigorously.  The world financial system was rotten and China demanded to cooperate in the timing of the crash if the US wanted China to stabilize the financial system after the crash.  Lehman Brothers was the sacrificial messenger of the impending financial crash.

 

            The financial strength of the US was based on the dollars as the universal currency in world economical exchange.  Bretton Woods (in New Hampshire) agreements in 1944 on the financial rules consecrated the pivotal power of the dollars; the British economist John Maynard Keynes tried hard during this conference to create a new world currency the “Bancor” but the US imposed its hegemony. Since then “the US administrators could decide what they wanted and it was up to the rest of the world to pay up the deficit”; Treasury Secretary John Connally stated it clearly “The dollar is our currency, but it is your problem”. 

 

            In 1960, the French President De Gaulle denounced the “exorbitant privilege of the dollars”.  Since the 1980’s investment capitals have been going into the USA and then the US multinationals would re-invest the borrowed capitals wherever they desired; 90% of US Treasury Bonds are purchased by foreign States. Nixon was very comfortable de-linking the dollars from the value of gold and the world had to go along with whatever the US Administrations thought was beneficial to the US regardless of the ultimate danger that exposed the world financial system.

 

            Consequently, States opted to save the surpluses of their dollar in “Sovereign Funds” meant to purchase foreign companies and enhance the flux of technology and know how and the latest management and financial methods.  In one decade, the weight of the dollars in the reserve of world exchange has decreased from 71% to less than 61%. Still, the currencies of the EU, China, and Japan are not that widely used and adopted to counterweight the power of the dollar in trade exchange; but the center of gravity is clearly shifting toward China.

 

            President Elect Barak Obama wants to re-invigorate US economy with major State investment (with Chinese cash); he must be closely cooperating with the Chinese on the amount and ways of re-launching the US economy.

 

Note: The Chinese regime was mute on the atrocities committed in Gaza; apparently, China is not hot on matter of human rights and crimes of wars and does not want to open the Pandora Box of its own horror stories.

Today’s lucubration: not erotically remunerating (part 2, January 11, 2009)

If you have to kill then, by increased order of esteemed behavior do the following:

First, make sure that you are paid according to experience and professionalism. “Security” contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan are being paid over $500 per day. They have a 90-day contract followed by a month vacation, usually spent in Africa hunting, mostly the tamed “wild animals” in natural reserves areas.

As you gain experience you will learn to demand extra armored mamba and security personnel for your own protection. Don’t be suckered like those tough Israeli “Defense Forces” reservists who are launched to fight babies in Gaza.

Be man enough to fight Hezbollah and Hamas resistance forces: man to man fights are noble exercises, even if you have to apply your training in rudimentary martial arts posturing.

By all means, decline Top Gun assignments: dropping bombs on ants is not erotically remunerating.

Second, don’t fool yourself that as a professional killer you don’t need to know your victim.  Even if your coward client gives you a picture and the coordinate of your next target it is incumbent upon you to do your due diligence of research.

If you get bored navigating the web then, do hire a professional internet navigator to gather the info; the more you share your fat contract salary the more professional you become.

Let your motto be “subcontracting is excellent business when my life is at stake”.  The best warrior is the one who excelled at avoiding forced-upon duals and running faster than rabbits.

Third, gathering intelligence info on your victim and not reading them, or investigating any further your client’s secret wants and needs and not learning much on human passions is total waste of your hard earned money.

You have to consider a “contract to kill” as an opportunity to know your strengths and weaknesses and answering “who am I?”, just for curiosity sake so that you would not hate your obscurantist attitude.

A contract to kill is the grace befallen on you to start respecting human rights to die in dignity.

Join the human rights organizations for continuing education in your line of profession.

State security services: Israel as third subcontractor (January 10, 2009)

 

            Learning “Politics” in one article is feasible.  Consider that the Zionist State is a third security subcontractor in the Middle East region; that Cheney-Halliburton is the second subcontractor and the US multinational oil cartel as the client for contracting out military campaigns in this region and you will get a much clearer picture of the Gaza conditions.  We can go even further in details and consider the Israeli Parliament as the first rank executive of the third mercenary subcontractor, the government as the second in ranking and the Israeli “Defense Force” as the cheaply paid contractors and dotted with the latest weapons of mass murder.

            The politically weak trio of (Olmert-Barak-Livney) in the current “temporary” Israeli government was given license, not just to kill, but to commit genocide in order to tame any kind of “resistance” to the Greater Middle East Strategy of total hegemony on the Arab Gulf oil production and distribution.  The soldiers in the Israeli “Defense” forces are naively indoctrinated to serve a fictitious Jewish State as their “Homeland” and are also asked to serve their military machine two months every year as reservists.  No wonder the US/Israeli military-industrial complex are not hot for peace or a variation on peace with the neighboring “Arab” States:  security contracts would dwindle drastically.  I hear that if a semblance of peace is forced in the Middle East then Blackwater, Triple Canopy, DynCorp and company will enjoy a large pool of trained and experienced mercenaries in the Israeli reservists.

President Moubarak of Egypt is the support subcontractor with the task of closing off all supply entrances to the Palestinians in Gaza, tightening the siege on one million and a half civilians, allowing the landing of arm shipments to Israel, and then leading the “cease fire” negotiations.  The 85 million outraged Egyptians will be permitted to demonstrate in districts outside of the Capital Cairo to vent out their rage and frustration. In Lebanon, demonstrators visit the barb wire surrounding the Egyptian Embassy to hand more assortments of footwear, an adequate symbol for this lousy and treacherous Moubarak dictatorial regime

Jordan (of the Hashemite tribe) is the second support subcontractor with the difficult task of containing Palestinian outrage in Jordan and the West Bank by all means possible. Mass demonstrations in front of the Israeli Embassy in Amman were quashed with utmost vengeance.

The theocratic and oligarchic monarchy in Saudi Arabia is basically the main “producer” of the hecatomb gore movie; the Saudi regime is ordered to come up with the dough in lieu of the US oil cartel with no return whatsoever.  In fact, the Saudi monarchy will invest in the “reconstruction” of Gaza simply to secure the Wahhabi sect predominance in the Arabic Peninsula and its neighborhood. It is to be known that the Wahhabi sect is darkest, prehistoric extremist religious sect in the history of Moslem sects and the source of modern Al Qaeda (Bin Laden) and Taliban (Afghanistan) movements.

A Walk in the Park for Barak Obama: Gaza (January 10, 2009)

 

            Within two weeks and single handedly, Bush Junior and Cheney have shredded the mask of Zionism.  For a century, the Western establishments have tried restlessly to design a human mask for the Zionist movement because Zionist ideology suited their interests in the Middle East to perfection.  The Western intelligence communities have studied and analyzed completely the characteristics of the Zionist movement and it was no mystery to them at all.  Zionism was the ideal candidate to destabilize a region rich in oil and strategically located to hamper colonial commerce and exploitation of the India and the Far East if the Middle East region united to preserve their natural resources and behave as an independent and self autonomous people.

            It has taken the Palestinian resistance in Gaza and the murder of 300 babies and the injury of 2,000 babies and the traumatizing of 600,000 babies to finally removing the tattered mask of Zionism and exposing the true ugly face of reality.  The World Community and populations needed this crazy couple of Bush-Cheney to steadfastly believe that crime against humanity is good if it suit their goals; that blessing war crimes against human dignity is their prophetic calling.  Yes, the New-Conservative, New-Born Baptist “Christians” finally succeeded to take revenge on the Jews who crucified their brand of “Jesus”; they must be feeling wonderfully good for this rebirth on the third millennia and at the expense of the “homeless” Palestinians.

            Now that the little people all over the world know the fundamental barbarity and apartheid ideology of Zionism then it should be walks in the park for President elect Obama to resolve the Palestinian/Israeli problems, if he wills it.  If Obama refuses to resolve the Near East problems, then he might as well give the green light to his mercenary State of Israel to design a vast park of 300 square kilometers in Gaza so that Obama might enjoy a warmer location than Camp David.  Either way, it all depends on what kind of a park Obama wishes to have in Gaza.

 

Note:  The true deservers of the Nobel Peace Prize have proclaimed their shame that Shimon Peres (Israel’ President) was also awarded this noble prize.  Simon Peres declared that Israel can defend its babies from the Palestinian babies in Gaza.
