Life is like a box of...

Chocolates? Seldom….

If you are fortunate enough to have the Forest Gump touch, maybe the “box of chocolates” works, but most of us don’t stumble into wealth.

I’d like to hear from stumblers. Those who have fallen on good times by accident. Do y’all exist?

Let me know your circumstances…

Kingfisher Bass Boat Work... Finally!

I bought this rig back in 2012 for the Mercury 150 XR4. Life & procrastination got in the way over the years, so it sat on the fence line under an oak.

The Hegemonic Islamism of Sayyid Qutb

Sayyid Qutb’s political philosophy was, and is, all about the implementation of Political Islam. Qutb saw Islam—and rightly so—as a complete ideological system of ethics, justice, and governance, whose Sharia principles guide every facet of life. Qutb’s political ideology promoted a layered approach in instituting the Sharia universally, over time, in a “counter-hegemonic re-articulation of the traditional ideal of Islamic universalism.”

The Project of the Muslim Brotherhood

The Project is an articulation of a Qutbist approach to Islamizing the West. The document outlining its implementation is written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982;
