I totally agree with your point of view, Sir.


And even if I didn't : you have spoken your thoughts in a polite and correct manner, on a forum in which the topic was totally ON the agenda.


 If your critics think you were wrong on your opinion : that is their good right. 

But is your own good right to stick to your opinion. 


Yours faithfully,

Bruno Daenen

a big thank you

I remember the men of Omaha and Utah Beach. I remember the men of Vietnam, Korea, Desert Storm, of Irak, of Granada, of Afghanistan. It makes me silent and humble.


A big thank you to the Secret Service, the CIA and all the military, especially the US Marine Corpse, the USAF, and of course Team Six.


Victory is ours!

God bless America, never again a 9/11


May the Lord give strength to the families of the murdered family members and husbands and spouses.

My wife and myself pray for all who are gone in the love of the Lord and for they who suffer, for them who lost a beloved person. 


God bless America.

BP Uses Mercenaries to Blocks Journalists From Talking to Disaster Workers

I saw this terrible event on youtube yesterday. In the first step it was a BP worker who tried to stop a camera man from doing his job.

Apparently the situation gets worse today because Mercenaries are making the perception of being in charge even worse.…

Freedom of speach

Not everything today is negative, thank God!! But when negative issues are mentioned it's a good thing to discus them in a blog like this.

Support freedom, support freedom of speech, the most essential component of democracy!

I don't get get it! Yesterday I saw mister Biden say that the US and Europe should take the leading role on climate change. Than why did president Obama disappear behind the curtain with some Chinese delegation while a real progress could have been made in Kopenhagen? Strange, very strange :(

Why Does The US Gov't Get To Patent Research Paid For By Public Tax Dollars?

patents to private companies. It details which agencies are getting how

many patents, showing that the government appears to get, on average,

between 1,000 and 1,500 patents per year. Now,…
