Raad Yono Calls it a Stick-Up
By Sam Yousif :: 12 Views :: Business & Finance

Chaldean business consultant Raad Yono says Wal-Mart’s alignment with liberal causes is out of threat and fear.  “Wal-Mart has been bullied around by Democrats and forced to give to causes they traditionally would not align with,” says Yono.  The consultant responding after www.CHALDEAN.org reported of Wal-Mart’s contribution to homosexual causes and decision to carry the abortion pill. 

The retailer has always cherished successful values that enrich lives and lay the foundation for success Yono says.  “But the pressure from Democrats has become unbearable as political operatives put the squeeze on Wal-Mart and coerce them into supporting liberal causes that run counter to Wal-Mart’s success.”

 Wal-Mart may be expanding in the People's Republic of China, but here in capitalist America the low-price retailer has become the Democratic Party's favorite pinata. The media like to portray this as a populist uprising against heartless big business. But what they don't bother to disclose is that this entire get-Wal-Mart campaign is a political operation led and funded by organized labor and the Democratic party.

By Sam Yousif :: 6 Views :: Living & Lifestyle

For many Chaldeans the investment in their home is second to none.  The luxurious master bedrooms, marble and slate countertops, elaborately decorated living and dining rooms, and routinely remolded bathrooms and kitchens seem par for the course. 

The long hours and hard-work to eek out a small savings can disappear overnight when the decision to remodel.  Most all remodeling project fail to return your investment in improving your home but some areas fair better than others. 

If the choice to remodel is made out of vanity rather than actual improvement you are guaranteed to lose most all your investment.  However, if the choice is made to genuinely improve the function, feel, and resale of the home you can recoup over 80% of your investment and enjoy the upgrade.  Before you begin, a wise Chaldean homeowner will asking themselves:: "Where's the smartest place to put my money?"

Best Buy a Bad Deal Says Shaya
By Sam Yousif :: 19 Views :: Business & Finance

Michigan, USA – Activist Abeer Shaya sees the writing on the wall.  A law student at University of Michigan and scholar of religious history, Shaya says Christian humiliation is a precursor to Christian persecution.  “In ancient times, Christians were mocked, harassed, belittled, and humiliated.  Kids were taught Christians ate their children and were the cause of natural disasters because they refused to worship many Gods.”

The Chaldean legal and historical scholar adds that Christians were first humiliated and then made to be scapegoats.  “While Christians kept to themselves, their values and virtues made them act in ways that drew attention from Romans.  They acted piously and their virtues and values contrasted with the Roman way of life.  Humiliation and insult is the building of a runway so the plane of persecution can land.”
Shaya adds that Christians today are obviously under attack; their holidays are corrupted, stripped, and commercialized into meaninglessness by anti-Christian groups.   As the Christmas season draws near Chaldeans like Shaya are making clear they are steering away of businesses that attempt to dilute or corrupt the Christmas holy day.  

Best Buy has announced they will be using "Happy Holidays" this coming Christmas shopping season, and they will not be using "Merry Christmas."

Red Cross Emblem Proliferation Becomes A Concern
By Rita Abro :: 8 Views :: Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

Baghadad, Iraq - Former medical volunteer in Iraq, Ramy Bakko shrugs and nods his head in confusion over the proliferation of the Red Cross emblem.   “Evil works in small ways.  Evil works to divide and conquer.  These new Muslim Iraqi people want to take over our country.”   Ramy Bakko was attacked for using Red Cross equipment in a Muslim country.  “They say I should be a Red Crescent. I tell them I am, I show them my shirt and badge, they call me a spy and that I am to be killed.  If not by God’s grace I would have been killed if one of the men did not recognize me for helping his child.  They let me go free and say if I use a Red Cross they will spill my red blood.”

The Chaldean medical doctor serves for the international aid society that provides humanitarian aid during times of war.  Often protected under the Red Cross or Red Crescent societies volunteers are called to help the injured.  “I have no job so I try to help those who are hurt.  I don’t care if they are Christian, Muslim, or Jew.  I try to save a life.  Because as you can see, my reward is one day my life will be saved.”

By Guest Reporter :: 13 Views :: Law & Order, Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's High Tribunal on Sunday found Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to hang for the 1982 killing of 148 Shiites in the city of Dujail. The visibly shaken former leader shouted "God is great!"

Saddam's half brother and former intelligence chief Barzan Ibrahim, and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, head of the former Revolutionary Court, were sentenced to join Saddam on the gallows for the Dujail killings after an unsuccessful assassination attempt during a Saddam visit to the city 35 miles north of Baghdad.

The death sentences automatically go to a nine-judge appeals panel which has unlimited time to review the case. If the verdicts and sentences are upheld, the executions must be carried out within 30 days.

Gibson Receives Award for Apocolypto
By Rita Abro :: 11 Views :: Sports, Art, and Entertainment

California, USA - Chaldeans felt the same glow of appreciation when Mel Gibson brought the Aramaic language to the forefront.   “A brilliant man whose action and deeds speak for him, better than he speaks for himself,” says UC college film critic Ann Kassa.

Controversy and anger has followed Gibson since his successful work on the Passion, which grossed nearly a billion dollars.  “He is seen as a clear and competitive threat by legacy studios in Hollywood,” says Kassa.  “Gibson is not a card carrying culture destroyer like the other studios.  Just the opposite.  This man seems to be on a mission to revive and bring dignity to people through his brilliant works.  Plain and simple he is a threat to Hollywood’s monopoly and he doesn’t hang around their clubs to be brainwashed.”

Kassa’s theory may not be off mark as Gibson completes his latest project titled "Apocalypto.” - a movie completely done in Mayan-dialect set to hit the theaters in early December of 2006.

Fake ‘Catholic Voters Guide’ Created To Mislead Catholics From Church Teachings
By Sam Yousif :: 9 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

American Catholics are stunned that the Democratic Party would stoop so low as to purposely mislead and manipulate Catholics about their faith and sacred teachings.    The fake 'Catholic Voters Guide' Published by Former Aide to John Kerry attempts to recapture the hemorrhaging of Catholic voters rejecting the Democratic Party. 

Chaldean Caucus member and former Democrat Wendy Jaberow, who became a Republican because of these sorts of underhanded and deceitful efforts, feels the Fake Catholic Voters Guide is another example of the shameful values the Democrats have embraced.  “They believe that ‘any means necessary’ is justifiable for them to gain power.  They have sold their souls to the devil.”
