I am learning to edit videos on my computer

We picked up Sony Movie Studio HD Platinum on an Black Friday deal. I loaded it several days ago, but just started the tutorials.
The power of this tool amazes me. Now you just have to wait to see my mug on the camera. Or, maybe we'll do puppets.

This is a link to a number of receptacle types.

Sometimes I can't escape my building inspector past. Plus, this will help some of my friends figure out what plug types they have.

What is the bigger threat?

Most of us know that police have no duty to protect citizens. Combine that with the absolute lack of any substantial terrorist attacks on US soil, and I am 99% convinced that the "War on Terror" is a sham perpetuated on the citizens of the US.
I'm not wishing harm on our people, but it seems awfully suspicious that we haven't had any attacks on civilians or any number of "soft" targets. I think the government has given us an enemy abroad, suspended our rights in this "state of emergency", and labeled returning vets as potential terrorists, while classifying the Ft. Hood massacre as "workplace violence".
I'm also not saying that there are not Muslims that don't wish us infidels harm. I'm just saying that they've been less effective than any number of angry teenagers in the past 10 years.
I also don't mean to diminish the service of veterans. I served in the USN Sea Bees from 1996-2000. I just think we've been mislead. That's perhaps the hardest thing for us to deal with. We've spent so much time and mental energy gearing up (and being wound up) for a fight, that it's hard to unwind ourselves.
My concern, is that the population control freaks in the UN and leading our country want us ready to fight. They don't care who we fight or kill--look at the suffering of non-combatants in all these areas of conflict.
Are we being wound up in order to fight each other as American citizens? What better way to destroy America, then get us fighting each other and bring in a NATO or UN military police force--all "for our own good".
Do you and I, as Christians, really believe that we should be a part of killing women and children who aren't attacking us?
Are we acting like Christ, or are we acting like the world?
Something to consider as we celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace this Christmas season.
