Red Hat has remained the most visible Linux packager and a prominent Windows competitor by releasing high-quality products with lots of extra features and plenty of professional sheen. This strategy clearly informs the company's Linux 7.1 line, available in a standard version ($39.95), a Deluxe Workstation version ($79.95), and the Professional Server version ($179.95).

[From The Editors Desk]...
By: Alan Stang

Most Americans would agree (I hope) that the victims of a totalitarian dictatorship have the moral, if not the legal, right, indeed the obligation, to use any means to overthrow that dictatorship. The only people I can think of who don't, are Christians who misunderstand scripture, especially Romans 13. You would have to look a long time to find somebody who believes that victims of Nazi oppression didn't have the profound, moral right to use any means, from assassination to TNT, to destroy it. Again, if you believe Romans 13 says you must obey a ruler however evil he is and defer to whatever crimes he commits, if, in other words, you believe God is a Nazi, then you are probably one of those people it would take a long time to find.

One reason the victims are morally justified in doing whatever they can get away with to liberate themselves is that a dictatorship by definition cancels the rules of normal human association. The main reason such victims may do as they like is that God says believers must replace an evil ruler, and scripture is full of praise for people who do exactly that. We are told to remember Jael with approbation, because she hammered a spike through Sisera's temples while he slept and nailed him to the ground. Not at all the kind of thing a genteel Republican woman would do.

So, the question arises, how do you know when a system has become a totalitarian dictatorship, thereby liberating its victims to do whatever they can get away with? What are the signs? When did the Hitler system become totalitarian?

That's easy. Hitler imposed a totalitarian dictatorship on Germany on . . . when he . . . Hmm......"

He was born John David Albert in 1806 at Hagerstown, Maryland. His father died in war of 1812, mother soon after. He lived with a married sister in Harrisburg, Penn. and traveled to Zanesville and Cincinnati (Ohio), Louisville (Kentucky) and then to St. Louis. Where he took a keel boat journey to New Orleans and back in 1833. He called working on the keel boat "the most laborious journey of his life."

In 1834, he went to the mountains with group of 60 men to trap. And continued for the next three years trapping and during that time bartered his furs at Fort Hall and went on a trip to the Great Salt Lake.

Outdoor Adventure: Ghost Towns & Old Mines
Siver Mines:
Clayton, Idaho
The Clayton silver mines are still active and are some of the oldest mines in Idaho to remain in operation. The founding of Clayton was a result of the discovery of silver in the upper Kinnikinik Creek area during the 1880s. The original smelter was built in 1881 and ran occasionally until 1904. Today, the stone foundations are all that remain.
Clayton Idaho still has nearly as many residents as it did at the turn of the century, it is in the 40-45 range. The mine called Clayton Silver has been closed since the 1980's when there was a cave in, but the mine is not even in the town limits, and is not considered to be a town itself, even though it did have a man camp where the employees could stay. If you are looking for a ghost town in that area, you should look at a small community that Henry Ford started as a lead mine several miles south of there on Thompson Creek.

Outdoor Tip: Series on High Altitudes
Traveling at high altitude can be hazardous. The information provided here is designed for educational use only and is not a substitute for specific training or experience. When going to altitude it is your responsibility to learn the latest information.

What is High Altitude?
Altitude is defined on the following scale High (8,000 - 12,000 feet [2,438 - 3,658 meters]), Very High (12,000 - 18,000 feet [3,658 - 5,487 meters]), and Extremely High (18,000+ feet [5,500+ meters]). Since few people have been to such altitudes, it is hard to know who may be affected. There are no specific factors such as age, sex, or physical condition that correlate with susceptibility to altitude sickness. Some people get it and some people don't, and some people are more susceptible than others. Most people can go up to 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) with minimal effect. If you haven't been to high altitude before, it's important to be cautious. If you have been at that altitude before with no problem, you can probably return to that altitude without problems as long as you are properly acclimatized.

3rd in a series of the money controlling men who own the banks and eventually everything!!
A Satanic Plot for a One World Government
The World Conspirators: the Illuminati:

Who controls the monies
The Pilgrims of Saint Michael firmly believe that the nucleus of all evil stems from those who control the monies of the world, whom we generally refer to as the International Bankers. But one word we seldom here about, much less understand, is the Illuminati.

The Illuminati are elite men, those on the top, who control the International Bankers to control, for evil purposes, the entire world. Their agentur are bred, educated, and trained to be placed behind the scenes at all levels of government. As experts and advisers, they mould government policy so as to further the secret plans of their masters. They lure people away from God by offering them money, the world, the flesh, and the devil.

Those who direct the Illuminati are against Christ and for Satan. They always remain in the dark, unidentified, and generally unsuspected. They use all peoples to serve their diabolical purposes. They divide to conquer, supplying arms and money to both sides, instigating people to fight and kill each other, in order to be able to achieve their objectives. they foster the terrorism of atomic warfare and deliberately cause world famine. Their primary goal is to form a one world government to have complete control of the entire world, destroying all religions and governments in the process.

Recently I came across a tape entitled «The History of the Illuminati» by Myron Fagan in which Mr. Fagan explains in detail what the Illuminati is, how it started, and their conspiracy to form a one world government by the end of the 20th Century. Following are excerpts taken from this tape, based on William Guy Carr's book, "Pawns in the Game". The subtitles are from the "Michael" Journal.

Behind the United States and its Constitution is a small group of men whose sole objective is to enslave the whole world and humanity in their satanic plot for a one world govenment. Now to give you a very clear picture of this satanic plot, I will go back to its beginning, back to the middle of the 18th Century, and name the men who put that plot into action.

This satanic plot was launched back in the 1760's when it first came into existence under the name of the Illuminati. This Illuminati was organized by one Adam Weishaupt who became a convert to Catholicism and later a Catholic priest. Then, at the request of the Financiers, he defected from the Catholic Church, and organized the Illuminati which was financed by the International Bankers.

Bill Clinton: Not If, but When for Hillary Run

Phil Brennan,
Sunday, Aug. 18, 2002
Former president Bill Clinton has confirmed's exclusive reports that his wife is hot on the trail to the White House.

Clinton speaks about his wife's run for the presidency as a matter of "when," not "if," say people who have discussed it with him, according to Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier. And several of her associates said she is eyeing 2008 as the year to run.

Nothing surprising about that.

Despite the most scandalous and corrupt administration in history, the liberal big media still will not say a bad word about Bill and Hillary Clinton:

Its Better To Be Safe than sorry!!!

Subject: Wal-Marts policy alert:


Even if you do not have little kids, pass this one on to everyone you can think of. You never know who you might save by sending this e-mail! Please take the time and forward this to any friend who has children & grandchildren!

Wanted to share something that happened today while shopping at Sam's Club.A mother was leaning over looking for meat and turned around to find her 4 yr. old daughter was missing. I was standing there right beside her, and she was calling her daughter with no luck. I asked a man who worked at Sam's to announce it over the loud speaker for Katie. He did, and let me say he immediately walked right past me when I asked and went to a pole where there was a phone. He made an announcement for all the doors and gates to be locked, a code something.

So they locked all the doors at once. This took all of 3 minutes after I asked the guy to do this. They found the little girl 5 minutes later in a bathroom stall. Her head was half shaved, and she was dressed in her underwear with a bag of clothes, a razor, and wig sitting on the floor beside her to make her look different.

Whoever this person was, took the little girl, brought her into the bathroom, shaved half her head, and undressed her in a matter of less than 10 minutes. This makes me shake to no end. Please keep a close eye on your kids when in big places where it's easy for you to get separated.

It only took a few minutes to do all of that-another 5 minutes and she would have been out the door. I am still in shock that some sick person could do this, let alone in a matter of minutes. The days are over when our little ones could run rampant all over the place and nothing worse would happen to them.

The little girl is fine. Thank God for fast workers who didn't take any chances

BE SURE TO FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE, SO THEY KNOW JUST HOW SICK PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE!!! (This happened at the Sam's Wholesale Club in Omaha, Nebraska.)

This message has been added to the story above:

I received this e-mail from one of my friends today. Let me first tell you that I work at the Sam's club in Lincoln, NE. The code that was spoken of is called a "Code Adam" It is named after John Walsh's (of Americas most wanted) son Adam who was kidnapped and murdered many years ago. It is used in all Sam's clubs, Wal-marts, and Wal-mart super centers to locate lost children.

This is how it works. If by some means you have been separated with your child tell the nearest employee! The employee will page a "Code Adam" (missing child in the store) over the intercom system followed by a description of the child height, weight, hair color, age, name, etc).

When that page goes out all the exits are immediately guarded, and/or locked in some cases, also every employee will stop whatever they are doing no matter what it is and help look for the missing child. This will continue until the child is found.

If the child is not found within a reasonable time then the police are notified and the store will conduct an aisle by aisle search. So if ever you are separated from your child now you know what to do. Missing children pictures hang by the exits of all Wal-mart and Sam's club stores, please take a few minutes to look these over as you leave, you just might have seen one of the children on them and you might be the one to give their parents hope and give the police a new lead in finding them.
Thank you.
Sincerely, Rudy Magee Sam's Club #6413


GUYS: Body Piercing:
Thinking about getting pierced?

Keep this in mind: The American Academy of Dermatology opposes piercing in any location except the earlobe. Dermatologists say that body piercing can trigger metal allergies and cause various types of cysts, scars and swellings. They also warn that if the equipment isn't sterilized properly, piercing can transmit hepatitis B and other blood-borne diseases.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

GALS: Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
Do you experience musculoskeletal pain, including tender spots in areas such as your hips, neck or shoulders? You could be suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome (FS). According to the American College of Rheumatology, this syndrome affects between three and six million Americans, primarily women of childbearing age. Other symptoms of FS include fatigue, poor sleep, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety and problems with memory and concentration.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

BEAUTY: Damage Control
It's all well and good to preach the joys of preventing skin damage (sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen), but what to do if years of tanning without SPF has started to take its toll? All is not lost as brands like Clarins, Sothy and Dermatologica all boast pretty effective After Sun Face Repairs. Also bear in mind the virtues of Retinol as a night repair serum as well as items with green tea ingredients that are good for repairing damaged skin.

TIP: Just freeze blueberries Tip
With blueberry season in full force, get 'em while they're cheap (or at least cheaper!) You can freeze them and enjoy them for months to come. There's only one rule to remember about freezing blueberries -- don't wash them first! Just put them into a freezer bag or plastic storage container and put them in the freezer. The official blueberry experts will tell you to "flash freeze" them first by putting them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and placing the sheet in the freezer, before putting them in a freezer container. The idea is that flash freezing will keep the berries from sticking together, so you can remove just a few from your freezer container. In my experience, flash freezing is an unnecessary step -- as long as the berries aren't wet when you put them in the container, they don't stick together.
