How to get a flight upgrade

Despicable? Probably. Selfish? Most certainly. Comfortable? Yes, definitely.

There are several truly below the belt ways to get that upgrade if you really need it. Or if you really, really want it. It isn’t pretty. But neither is that fat slob sitting next to you in coach class.

OK, so I’m not going to win any awards for being a peace ambassador between airlines and their customers. But it’s tough going out there in the travel world, and many travelers insist, no, they demand that they will only fly business class on international flights. And this applies to non-business travelers as well. Some will go to great lengths to secure that coveted upgrade to business or even the promised land of First Class.

Here are three things that I personally admit to doing, and yes, they have worked. Did I already say that they are despicable? I did? Oh, good.

Once, some time ago, I had a cheap coach ticket from San Francisco to London. It was a pleasure trip only, but good God it’s a long, long flight involving an overnight and I wasn’t about to spend twelve hours in the midst of steerage.

I had some time on my hands, about two weeks before I was to leave. I decided to fire up the laptop and fire off a letter to my airline. In this letter, I presumed to be the head of a travel services advisory company quite wonderfully named after myself. And, in this letter I wrote to a Mr. Nameless Airline Executive, and asked him where on God’s green earth have you left my GOLF CLUBS? I swear I checked them on that recent flight from Austin, TX to SFO. But where are they? I’m having to borrow my wife’s clubs and I look a right fool out there with pink driver covers!

Maybe you could make it up to me by doing me the honor and privilege of having me enjoy your transcontinental business class service?

It worked. I had sunk to a new low. But in a fortnight I was feeling a little better at 38,00 feet emptying the business class cabin of its best clarets.

Another time I had to fly from Madrid to Singapore. Yes, that’s an odd route. But it was business and my clients, the cheap bastards that they were, wouldn’t pony up the business class fare, but that’s another story. After a hard day at work in Madrid and several harder hours drinking with the same feisty Spanish business execs I really was in no mood to spit up in the spartan and low-end economy class lavatories. As the airline I was to fly was a partner of a domestic U.S. one I often used I devised a plan.

The London Bombings

To understand the London bombing’s we need to look at the background of the political climate that prevailed prior to the bombing’s. The labour party under the leadership of Tony Blair was at an all time low, and the labour party was heading into obscurity in the coming general election. In times of crisis the people have a tendency to support their national government, irrespective of whether they are good or bad, history is filled with this human pattern of behaviour. Conveniently for the labour party and Mr Blair the bombing’s took place? Within days of the London bombing’s, evidence began to emerge indicating western intelligence agencies involvement.

To help us understand who perpetrated them we need to look at the Madrid bombing’s of 03. 11. 04. The Spanish Government admitted that after a two year investigation of the Madrid bombing’s there was no evidence of any connection with the terrorist group known as Al Quaida. (AP news)(Associated Press). All the evidence was pointing to the Spanish security services of having links with everyone of the supposed bombers, including the head of the Spanish bomb squad. The alleged leader of the bombers who reportedly gave dynamite to the terrorists was connected to the Madrid bomb squad. All of this is confirmed on BBC.CO.UK of Thursday 20 April 2004, and on CNN.COM, USA Today and ABC NEWS.

The same pattern of events that took place in Madrid is mirrored in London!
On the morning of July 7 2005 three trains and a bus were ripped to pieces, when four military grade explosive devices detonated. At 8-50am three explosive devices simultaneously detonated on three separate trains. Within minutes eyewitnesses were informing the authorities and the press, and it was blatantly obvious that multiple terror attacks had now taken place.Yet for one and a half hours after the bombs had gone off, Scotland Yard doggedly persisted that it was only a power problem with the underground system? They kept up this pretence even though there were dead and dying Londoners on three separate trains, plus the fact that this information was now well known to the media? What reasons could there be for such misinformation. Why withhold it for one and a half hours, information which could enable people to take steps to protect themselves from the possibility of other bombs that could be in the area? Who has sought to investigate such outrageous anomalies, what reasons could there be for such an abdication of responsibility by the police, and their duty to protect the public. That bizarre behaviour continues.

For fifty minutes after the bombings while still claiming it is only a power problem, the police divert the number 30 bus, Hackney Wick to Marble Arch to leave it’s normal route and depart at the corner of Woburn Square and Tavistock Square. At 9-47am a fourth bomb explodes on that very bus Killing thirteen civilians, and injuring many others. Out of several hundred buses in service that day, the number thirty was the only one that was diverted?

The detectives that investigated the background of the four alleged bombers concluded that they did not fit into the pattern or have the M.O, (modus operandi) of a suicide bomber. They all had good jobs, were part of well founded happy families, they had all played cricket the day before the bombing’s. The day of the bombing’s they bought return tickets, one was caught on camera arguing about the price of his ticket! Scotland Yard detectives on questioning eye- witnesses who were on the trains and bus, concluded that the alleged bombers were unaware that they were carrying bombs in their rucksacks? This information is on the record, and was published by associated press (AP), but has not been pursued by the media in general. The supposed mastermind behind the London bombing’s was believed to be a Haroon Rashid Aswat, born in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire on the 22 Sept. 1974.

The FOX NEWS channels Dayside Programme of July29 2005, revealed the supposed mastermind of the London bombing’s as Haroon Rashid Aswat was a British Intelligence asset! Former U.S. Justice Department Prosecutor and F.B.I. terror expert John Loftus who participated on this FOX NEWS PROGRAMME exposed the fact that Aswat was being protected by M.I.6., and was clearly under their control? John Loftus pointed out that Aswat was well known to U.S., authorities, they wanted to arrest him for trying to set up terrorist training camps in Oregon, but were ordered to back off from Aswat as their own H.Q., the Justice Dept., informed them he was working for British Intelligence. Aswat was wanted by the C.I.A., yet he was free to fly into Britain from America two weeks prior to the London bombing’s. Aswat left the U.K., the day before the bombings and flew to Pakistan where he was arrested. On the day of his arrest in Pakistan, the bombs in London went off, yet within twenty fours Aswat was released? Scotland Yard were looking everywhere for this man, but he was under the divine protection of M.I.6., for reasons that they, and others in government only knew.

Benjamin Netanyahu former prime minister of Israel, now it’s finance minister was in London on the day of the bombing’s, at the Great Eastern Hotel one hundred yards from Liverpool Street Subway Station, which was bombed at was informed at 8. to leave his hotel, this information came from the head of Mossard the Israeli Intelligence agency as reported on by (AP) associated press. Others were warned similarly, showing a conspiracy of evil by the dark forces operating within our government and security services, who are responsible for killing their own peoples for their own diabolical goals!

John Loftus went on to point out that the C.I.A., Israeli Intelligence (Mossard) and other intelligence agencies were informing British Intelligence M.I.6.,that thousands of Al Quiada followers and sympathisers were pouring into the U.K. The French Intelligence Service was particularly vociferous in this regard. The evidence accumulates that M.I.6., knowingly let thousands of terrorists into our country, and have used them for their own devious ends, and to our harm. London is well known by our European allies as the DUSTBIN of Europe, and our capital is referred to as LONDISTAN. What shame is being imposed upon us by those who rule, they are now being seen as our greatest enemies.

To add more damning evidence about those who so rule over us is David Shayler, former M.I.5., agent who was jailed for breaking the official secrets act, he points out that the secret services create state sponsored terrorism, and by so doing give the government of the day powers that only exist when you are in a state of crisis. What better enemy than terrorism to impose laws that you could never burden your population with otherwise, civil liberties are sacrificed on the alter of terrorism. The government have virtually a free hand as they keep the masses in a constant state of fear.

He went on to quote from the Cambridge Evening News who wrote an article about Bruce Laif a tube train survivor of the London bombing’s, who stated that he never saw anyone carrying a rucksack, but what he did see as he was lying injured on the train, was jagged metal protruding from the floor of the train, pointing to the conclusion that an explosive device had been planted under the train? David Shayler is hoping that the investigators or the media would investigate further. Not surprisingly no one in the national press or other bodies, is following up these questionable anomalies that go against the official conclusions!

David Shayler believes the assault on our civil liberties in the U.K., began with the conflict in Northern Ireland, he clearly describes how the security services provoked the problem in Northern Ireland so by bringing in new draconian laws, to remove bit by bit, the freedoms that we were familiar with. That erosion has continued apace with the new threat of Islamic terrorism. With the end of the cold war and the I.R.A., ceasefire, a new enemy was needed, and they let it take root, we along with the Americans cleverly contrived using this particular avenue of terrorism (Islam), to keep our war machines in production, and our populations in check. To keep us all in a constant state of insecurity, which will give more or less free reign to those in power, and make huge amounts of money for those who have most to gain from such instability.

Michael Meacher, a former cabinet minister in Tony Blairs government, was sacked for raising sensitive questions about Iraq on the eve of the Iraq war. Here is a little of what he had to say on the London bombing’s, “It is a very convenient way of ensuring their is fear, of ensuring that there is control, and of ensuring that those in the know, and of course we cannot tell, because it is all secret, are in a position of extreme power.”

Mr Blair and Mr Bush have declared terrorism as the new war of the twenty first century, a war they believe that will go on for generations? A hundred year war? The evidence of state sponsored terrorism is overwhelming, and people need to wake up to the deceptions of their own governments. Many people say what can I do against such powerfully corrupt individuals, keep in mind that is all they are, individuals with fears, and human weaknesses like ourselves. They might have a power structure behind them, but they are also dependant on the frailties of others within that power structure, who make up that support.

We must remember that those who hide behind their position of power, and their various government departments, often getting one of their lower ranking ministers to fall on their sword (resign) for their mistakes, demonstrates not statesmanship but cowardice. They, the few who control, depend on the many not doing anything, when good men say nothing the wicked prosper, that is why THEY are bringing in more, and more laws to curtail our freedom of speech, and intimidate us into silence. The greatest fear of those in power are the people speaking as ONE in their objection to their own governments behaviour. A perfect example of this was the war in Vietnam, a few voices calling out in the wilderness to a deafening crescendo that forced the most powerful government on this planet to concede to the cries of their people. Remember you are not alone, many others are speaking up, writing letters, phoning the media on a regular basis, e-mailing, informing others. Many celebrities in America and elswhere, are standing up against the state sponsored terrorism, that they believe their government was party to as regards the Twin Towers. Half of New Yorkers believe 9/11 was an inside job, the evidence of state sponsored terrorism as regards 9/11 is staggering.

In summing up, the greatest fear of those corrupt individuals in power is exposure, and just as they have blown their own people up for their own evil ends, so we can blow them up. Not with bombs like they do, but by being part of that human time bomb known as the people. Collectively we can bring these villains to justice, when one goes, the others fall like leaves in late autumn, Its up to all of us to expose the truth.

Travel destinations: Canary Islands, Lanzarote

While flying I am high above the earth and its problems, I realize this makes problems smaller than I am, putting them in the proper perspective. I am bigger and semi detached from the earth and its problems.

On the flight over, my seat happened to be over a wing and I noticed a crack on the wing, realizing that it hadn’t gotten any worse, I continued to watch it , I figured there wasn’t any use to say anything, there is no place to land in the middle of the ocean anyway.

Upon arriving in Madrid, I immediately exchanged my US dollars for the Spanish Peso. I inquired as to whether this money would be good in the Canary Islands, the young girl replied,” Yes we still own the Canary Islands.”

Just the answer I needed after being up all night!

Guess that is what I get for asking a dumb question.

My connecting flight to Lanzarote didn’t leave for six hours, ,so I deducted that the best thing I could do was grab some shut eye on the unoccupied bench in the airport. Using my camera bag for a pillow, and assuming a horizontal positioned I settled in for a long deserved nap.

After departing Madrid on a three hour flight, I settled in for the three hour flight, we were barely in flight when I noticed we were still in Spain and we were landing, not knowing what the reason was, I started inquiring as to what was going on. However , no one spoke English. Looking out my window I noticed a road sign that stated we were in Seville. The flight attendants kept telling us to depart the plane while offering no explanation.

We departed and were loaded onto a bus and taken to the airport where we were told that we would be reboarding shortly. Finally, finding someone who spoke broken English, I was told that we had to refuel the plane! We only left Madrid an hour ago, what do we need fuel for?

My only reasoning was that maybe there wasn’t any fuel available in Lanzarote, and they had to refuel before the plane left Spain.

The Canaries are called Canis Islands or islands of good fortune and are one of the last remnants of the Continent of Atlantis.

Lanzarote now rises from the ocean as a paradise yet undiscovered its many fine hotels and resorts shining in the sun. The continuous building & construction lie as evidence of the potential of this sunshine paradise with an almost perfect climate.

This island has much to offer, from the lava fields formed by volcanoes that erupted simultaneously in 1730 and flowed until 1736. During which time 12 villages were

What to know about traveling in Spain

The image of Spain as a country of sun, sea, flamenco and bullfighting is only really true of Andalucia. Madrid and Barcelona are bustling metropolises, and the north is quite European in style and climate.

Out of Barcelona and Madrid, Barcelona is the more famous, and more cosmopolitan of the two. But people from Barcelona would argue that it isn’t really Spain! It is also tucked away in the north-east corner. Madrid is a better base to get around the rest of Spain. It also has the beautiful Toledo and Segovia nearby, which make great day trips.

For alternative, young nightlife, Madrid has the Camden-like Malasaña, while Barcelona has the world famous Razzmatazz.

Sevilla is beautiful, with Easter the best time of year. The Easter Carnival is a joy, while the temperature is far more bearable than in the summer.

Staying in the south, Cádiz is a beautiful windswept peninsula with nice beaches. For surfing, Tarifa is the clear winner.

When travelling, be sure to compare prices and travel times. Often a bus is just as quick as a train, and considerably cheaper. At other times the express train makes the difference between flying and taking the train quite little.

Note that the south coast is badly connected by train (Marbella shockingly doesnt have a train station) so a coach may be a better choice.

Flying? How to prevent lost luggage at the airport

March 27th, 2008 is a day which should have meant great things for British Airways. Instead it has turned into a date they would rather forget. As the airline bosses met the first arriving aircraft from Hong Kong into the new Terminal 5, they had little idea that most of the passengers checking-in for their departing flights would not receive their bags for a few days!

Of course, it’s nothing new. The new airport at Hong Kong experienced similar tales of woe when it opened, as did the new terminal at Madrid. Beijing’s new airport was hailed as a great success, but then, would China’s propaganda department actually tell you if it wasn’t?

Thankfully, very few bags actually get completely lost worldwide in the airline system. In 2006, some 240,000 bags were never returned to their owners, over 100,000 of these being in the USA where the arrivals hall baggage carousels can often be accessed by passers-by. Given that there were some 150 million passenger movements that year, the number of bags lost without trace is a tiny fraction but, nonetheless, frustrating for the luckless traveller seen scratching his head in disbelief at the baggage agent’s desk.

So, what can the traveller do to minimise the risk of lost or delayed baggage?

1. Purchase Travel Insurance Very few Europeans engage in either business or leisure travel without buying travel insurance cover which, in addition to medical cover, provides an allowance for essential expenses when bags are delayed or lost. However, despite North America having an “insurance driven culture”, very few US or Canadian citizens seem to consider travel insurance as a priority. Personally, I consider it essential!

2. Know your Airline’s Terms and Conditions. How much cabin baggage do they allow? (Could you pack all you need in your cabin baggage?) What are you not allowed to place in checked-in baggage (some airlines do not allow items such as business documents, laptop computers etc. due to the potential high cost implications to their owners if these items go missing!) What is the airline’s limit of liability and how much do they charge to increase the limit if necessary?

Michael O’Leary of one of the new so-called “low cost airlines”, Ryanair, has abolished any checked baggage allowance. They allow one 10 kg (20 lb) carry on bag which O’Leary says should be adequate for anyone’s needs, given the extremely low advance purchase fares Ryanair charge. As he says, “if you need a hair dryer,

The magnificent eleven

Goal keeper (1st choice) -Peter shmeichel (Rtd)

Subs-gianluigi Buffon, petr cech, Carlo Cudiccini

Surely no goalie ever matched his record saves and vital stunts that helped Manchester united to capture successive premier league crowns. His agility and drive put united on the forefront of any title challenge with his excellent saves and capability to commandeer a defense to his liking. Be it Europe or domestic. And in his footsteps is his son young shmeichel who plays for Manchester city and has already made a good name for himself by being Sven Goran Eriksson’s first choice keeper


Right back

Roberto Carlos(Olympiakos)

Need I say more?

Left back

Philip lahm (Bayern Munich)

He can run all day and is a reliable source of goal-saving tackles and pinpoint crosses. Arguably the best left back around.


Fabio Cannavarro (Real Madrid)

a great defender of all times. He proved his worth in the 2006 FIFA world cup by scooping the most valuable player of the tournament. He also scooped the European footballer of the year. His lightning speed, coupled with the strength of an ox, leaves strikers at bay. in total disillusionment and frustration

Ricardo Cavarlho.(chelsea)

Considered FC Porto’s finest defender and Chelsea’s unequaled goliath, he remains one of the strongest defenders that have shown resilience and excellent physical fitness. his good conservative tackles have never cost Chelsea a penalty since his exodus from Porto.


1. David Beckham (LA Galaxy)

Subs-Cristiano Ronaldo

An excellent ball supplier from the wings is one of the key components that make a team invincible. Coupled with his strong leadership skill on the pitch(great skipper eh!) and being a free kick specialist be sure that he will win you goals even in the dying minutes. His record at Old Trafford and Madrid speak for itself.

2. Argen robben (real Madrid)

His subs-Lionel Messi, Joe Cole

The Flying Dutchman always impresses on the ball with his neat flicks and cut-backs on the flanks. A very versatile player who can do both wings

3. Michael Ballack (Chelsea)

His sub-Frank Lampard, Zinedine Zidane, Claude Makelele

A towering presence in the mid field is needed for any goals to be delivered via the head. He is a holding mid fielder who wins balls when crucial

4. Ronaldinho Gaucho (Barcelona)

Sub-Deco, Michael Essien,

In every team there has to be a playmaker and when creativity is called for, he is the man for the job


1. Didier Drogba- Chelsea

The nice thing with him is that you can either leave him up on his own and lump balls to him or get him involved in the short-passing game. Either way, he’ll tie up entire opposing back fours on his own.

2. Ruud Van Nistelrooy-Real Madrid

And to think some numpties thought he was finished. He and Thierry Henry are the only strikers to have scored 20 or more goals in a major European league in five of the past six seasons. Put the ball anywhere near him and he’ll score. Simple as that.

Their subs- Samuel eto’o, Thierry Henry, (both of Barcelona) Ronaldo(Internazionale), Wayne Rooney(Man U), Dimitar berbatov (Totenham Hotspur)

Temple of Love Spawns Common Word Love World Interfaith Movement

Lost in the fog of alzheimers rage dementia, John McCain has inadvetently made the point that not only is Barack Obama ready to lead America to a brighter future, but the world has already embraced Barack Obama as the long awaited for, truly loved and admired leader of the free world. One would have thought that Barack Obama would have been airing his rapturous welcome in Europe, where eight years of George Bush John McCain hawkenomics have made American tourists into the skunks at the proverbial garden party, but instead it is John McCain making it the centrepiece of his latest attack ad against Senator Obama. What’s next from the McCain camp, videos of Barack Obama vehemently deriding the George Bush John McCain march into Iraq which has crippled both Iraq and the United States of America?

John McCain is questioning Barack Obama’s ability to lead? George Bush and John McCain are the ones who led the United States into the quagmire that is Iraq and the 11 trillion dollar United States deficit, over the objections of Barack Obama. John McCain wants a hundred year war in Iraq. The entire world understands this except the United States of America. Any country which elected George Bush President twice is sure to elect John McCain President. Jesus Christ said, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own home.” Jesus challenged the people to use their minds, by throwing double negatives at them.

John McCain wishes that he had the sex lives of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and this is why he raises the question of offshore drilling. John McCain has come full circle from the Hanoi Hilton to the Paris Hilton. Does anyone really believe that spending five years in the Hanoi Hilton does not leave permanent emotional scars in the mind of the victim? Haven’t we learned the lessons of entrusting the country for 8 years to an alcoholic pathological liar? John McCain is so busy nuclear threatening and alienating the 1.3 billion Islamofascists, the billions of Russian and Chinese Commies, the Teen Choice Awards, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton that he makes Brig. Gen. Jack D. Ripper look like Mother Teresa.

The media have this perverse attraction to sex, blood, gore and violence and completely ignore incredible strides that have been made recently towards world peace. For 5 million years the common grandparents of every human being were Pagans. 4,000 years ago, Judaism was invented by Abraham, who forbid ham and cheese sandwiches. 2,000 years ago the Jewish born Rabbi and Messiah of Christianity and Islam invented Christianity, reinstating the right to eat ham and cheese sandwiches. 1,400 years ago, the Prophet Muhammad invented Islam, once again banning the right to eat ham and cheese sandwiches. John McCain developed such a craving for ham and cheese sandwiches in the Hanoi Hilton that he is now threatening to nuke into oblivion anyone who even suggests that he cannot eat ham and cheese.

If we now follow John McCain into nuclear world war 3 against Islamofascist Iran and their backers Russia and China, every scientist knows that the world wide radioactive cloud will render pigs and dairy cows extinct forever. John McCain is lusting for revenge against North Vietnam and their backers Russia and China, not to mention his obvious lust for tickets to this year’s Grammy Awards.

In Berlin, Barack Obama told the cheering throng, “We must tear down the walls dividing Christians, Muslims and Jews.” You do not know this because the media hasn’t mentioned it, but three years ago, The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion was founded. The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion unites Christians, Muslims and Jews and everyone else by tying them together with their common threads and resolving all of their differences once and for all.

Last year the Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion spawned the world wide Islamic movement, “A Common Word Between You and Us, Love.” These two peace movements, despite an almost total lack of coverage by the media, have so far brought together Roman Catholics and Protestants after hundreds of years of squabbling, the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church after a thousand years of squabbling, Pope Benedict XVI, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the religious and political leaders of the Muslim world. Just last week, amid a complete media blackout by the American Media, Saudi King Abdullah, who recently met with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican, held a world interfaith conference in Madrid Spain, at which he literally embraced Christianity and an Israeli, in a move more shocking than the Madonna Britney Spears open mouth kiss.

Saudi King Abdullah’s interfaith conference in Madrid, Spain was attended by representatives of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism. The American Tiger Woods represented the Buddhists, giving a heavily attended lecture on the Zen of Putting. According to Tiger, if you are facing a downhill sidehill 5 footer for all the marbles, you need to transcend into a heavily meditative state and chant internally to yourself, “It’s Time for a Change.”

Jordanian King Abdullah and Jordanian Prince Ghazi founded “A Common Word Between You and Us, Love.” Now Muslim moderates worldwide have taken the baton, led by Saudi King Abdullah, who at the interfaith conference in Spain requested the Christian, Muslim and Jewish people to unite as one, and to reject the forces of religious fanaticism. Pope Benedict XVI declared that never again should religion be used as a reason for war. American Jordanian Queen Noor has spearheaded a U.N. Alliance of Civilizations Media Fund of $100 million to fund films promoting Christian, Muslim and Jewish Harmony.

Instead of the media and universities covering and teaching The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion, and A Common Word Between You and Us, Love, and the interfaith reconciliation movements of Pope Benedict XVI and Jordanian and Saudi King Abdullah, our media and universities are remaining silent on these life on earth saving initiatives. Last December, Al Gore told Time Magazine, “When I was in the Snow and Ice Data Center, receiving a full briefing on the polar ice caps, afterwards I would turn on my T.V. and there were two networks with the bulletin: Britney Spears loses custody of her children. We’re living in a madhouse if our priorities focus on the embalming of Anna Nicole Smith, or the trial of OJ Simpson, while we ignore the greatest crisis this nation has ever faced.

Al Qaeda is now calling for the assassination of Saudi King Abdullah for holding the Madrid Interfaith Conference and bringing the religions together. Jordanian and Saudi King Abdullah, Pope Benedict XVI, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Chief Rabbi of Israel and Barack Obama are calling for the reconciliation of the world’s religions before they lead us all into the Apocalypse, as Osama bin Laden, George Bush and John McCain call for the continuation of their Religious Crusades. John McCain questions Barack Obama’s ability to lead. There is no question. Barack Obama wants to “tear down the walls dividing Christians, Muslims and Jews”, and John McCain wants to go to nuclear war against 1.3 billion Islamofascists, Russia and China.

Before you make your choice who to follow, you should know this. The Christian Bible was written a hundred years after Jesus died by Greek authors. In the book of Revelations, Jesus Christ flies down from heaven on a flying horse and defeats the snake, goat, lion Beast, Devil. In the Greek Myth, written a thousand years ealier, Prince Bellerophon flies on his flying horse Pegasus and defeats the snake, goat, lion Chimera. You are gambling the fate of life on earth on a plagiarized fairy tale, like the one about it being a bad thing for the President of the United States to be adored by the people of the world, our new allies under President Obama.
