JOHN HORVATH Jr
Southern Harmony

Crater city, burnt out suburbs, masses returning homeward-- old country red clay for red ore, white cotton for autumn snow, Appalachia, Ozark, Blue Ridge, salt Gulf for tamed Prairies, for spent lakes-- Old country, the old country calling. Soft drawling voice for spit and scream of furnaces, putting soft curves on town square. Slower. Change humming not hammering. Slower. Change sauntering not swaggering. Slower. America's soft, fat belly blossoming-- Hear rebel battle cry, the Sacred harp, Dixie, Blues, Blue Grass, Jazz, America's soft, fat, old belly blossoming under clear sky and red setting sun; making itself known; being felt as if the first time. Unconquerable, greening, uncontrollable, reaching-- rising phoenix, spreading kudzu, the South. Old Country, The Old Country calling. Dixie is its rivers and land flowing through veins and arteries, caking onto feet and knuckles, into pores and nostrils. Continuity and structure, ordered trees, rolling hills blackbottom farms-- The Old Country The South Look South, a land between horizons, where true alloys rest while sun rising and falling heats and sets the slag pouring and polluting, boiling and bubbling, scarring lakes and rivers and humanity scurrying for a few footholds left-- Look South, to land between horizons. The Old Country. The Old Country is calling.

SEBASTIAN VILAR RODRIGUEZ
All European Life died at Auschwitz

"REMEMBER AS YOU READ -- IT WAS IN A SPANISH PAPER Date: Tue. 15 January 2008 14:30" --SUE LITTLETON" I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz . We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride. They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts. And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs. What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .. The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world's population. They have received the following Nobel Prizes: Literature: 1988 - Najib Mahfooz Peace: 1978 - Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat 1990 - Elias James Corey 1994 - Yaser Arafat: 1999 - Ahmed Zewai Economics: (zero) Physics: (zero) Medicine: 1960 - Peter Brian Medawar 1998 - Ferid Mourad TOTAL: 7 (SEVEN) The Global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000; that is FOURTEEN MILLION or about 0.02% of the world's population. They have received the following Nobel Prizes: Literature: 1910 - Paul Heyse 1927 - Henri Bergson 1958 - Boris Pasternak 1966 - Shmuel Yosef Agnon 1966 - Nelly Sachs 1976 - Saul Bellow 1978 - Isaac Bashevis Singer 1981 - Elias Canetti 1987 - Joseph Brodsky 1991 - Nadine Gordimer Peace: 1911 - Alfred Fried 1911 - Tobias Michael Carel Asser 1968 - Rene Cassin 1973 - Henry Kissinger 1978 - Menachem Begin 1986 - Elie Wiesel 1994 - Shimon Peres 1994 - Yitzhak Rabin Physics: 1905 - Adolph Von Baeyer 1906 - Henri Moissan 1907 - Albert Abraham Michelson 1908 - Gabriel Lippmann 1910 - Otto Wallach 1915 - Richard Willstaetter 1918 - Fritz Haber 1921 - Albert Einstein 1922 - Niels Bohr 1925 - James Franck 1925 - Gustav Hertz 1943 - Gustav Stern 1943 - George Charles de Hevesy 1944 - Isidor Issac Rabi 1952 - Felix Bloch 1954 - Max Born 1958 - Igor Tamm 1959 - Emilio Segre 1960 - Donald A.

Blumberg 1977 - Roselyn Sussman Yalow 1978 - Daniel Nathans 1980 - Baruj Benacerraf 1984 - Cesar Milstein 1985 - Michael Stuart Brown 1985 - Joseph L.

Roberts 1993 - Phillip Sharp 1994 - Alfred Gilman 1995 - Edward B. Lewis 1996- Lu RoseIacovino TOTAL: 129 The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels. Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems. Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them. Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel 's part, the following two sentences really say it all: 'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel ." Benjamin Netanyahu General Eisenhower Warned Us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead. He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some son of a bitch will get up and say that this never happened!' Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to that fear. It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while the German people looked the other way. Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

Passages

Wordless thoughts diffuse my conscious dream Like ink on blotting paper They diffuse Take form And shape the words that glide to my ears And slowly, methodically steal the moment Telling me who I am Taunting, tantalizing Stating the facts And questioning My existence Thus day awakes from night's confusion The rambling dreams of yesterday and tomorrow Of other lives and parallel existences Surface Conglomerate Diffuse And question who I am And saying thus State, I am a life in place, racing, traveling, dreaming, fashioning An existence in this graying, whimpering madness This greed displaced convulsion of humanity Choking in its blind belief in material growth Its perversion of the natural order Wordless thoughts transcend my vision The outward inward messages ignored I move in measure to my dreams My inward outward dimensions Accepting my being Rejecting my doubts The antihero in a writhing, screaming world The antihero, the faithless faith healer Communicating with myself Transcending order and conventional strife Dreaming my way through life in chaotic strides That leap the divides And defy the odds Challenge the commonality of unquestioned order And live in a solitary path of wordless thoughts My existence
