I want everyone to check out www.OVNTV.com. It's the first internet television network of its kind, and it will be the first to feature Native channels. A press release will come soon for everyone who has Native content to provide to these channels so we can hear your story. My whole life I've been trying to give the true perspective of who we are, and now our aspiring Native filmmakers have a place for the world to access their content. Finally we will be able to create and present our image from our perspective for the world to see...And it's FREE! -- OVN currently requires Internet Explorer 6+ and Windows XP or Vista, but the Mac version is coming soon." -- Please click on the picture for OVNTV!

|Remember them gals from Indigenous cultures around the world who talked to the Dali Lama about world peace? Well, I do since one of them grannies is my aunty, my mom’s sister Margaret Behan. I talked with her the other day back on the rez and she is still doing the deal and championing Native and Human interests around the globe. So, in a shameless attempt to take full advantage of media exposure, I will promote my auntie’s web site in the hopes she will make me some fry-bread next time she is on the rez.|

Here is one for the “What Were You Thinking” file. Today terror rang through the streets of New York City as Air Force One with a fighter escort buzzed the city doing laps around the Stature of Liberty and cruising the New York skyline. People were injured during the evacuation of sky scrapers doing this hapless stunt. Many people were screaming for their lives as they ran from buildings in mortal fear. Many New Yorkers suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder were plunged into near panic as the presidential jet and its fighter escort did a few photo-ops. From Staten Island to So Ho New Yorkers were not amused
Already reeling from the devastating 9-11 catastrophe the destroyed the Twin Towers killing thousands of innocent people New Yorkers were not happy campers. Blatant and insensitive is an understatement as FAA officials said there was nothing to worry about. Like pouring salt on a wound this was beyond stupid in any event. I can’t remember at any time in the past were Air Force One was ordered to pull off such a publicity stunt for any reason, photo-op or not.
Mayor Bloomberg said;
“The good news is it was nothing more than an inconsiderate, badly conceived and insensitive photo op with the taxpayers’ money,”
With all the concerns for the environment and the conservation of energy you have to wonder what the White House was thinking. What a callous disregard for the survivors of 9-11. I wonder if the federal government will pick up the tab for the innocent victims who were injured during the may lay as people ran for their lives. Obviously this would have been a very real trigger for those suffering PTSD at the very least. There will be a financial toll as well since commerce was totally disrupted. Mayor Bloomberg was not pleased and the totality of this debacle is yet to be tallied.

Whether or not the swine flu is man made is of no consequence at this juncture. What is important is that people should prepare for the worst and pray it does not spread throughout the globe. Washing hands and wearing face masks should already be common practice if you plan to survive what may be a world wide pandemic. The swine flu is a deadly plague and Mexico has already made the first move to protect their population. They have issued face masks and closed down public events and gathering places.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and it amazes me that everyone is so lackadaisical about the possibility of another great plague. This is not the time to be politically correct or worry about causing a stir since the potential is here now. Over kill, I think not since I have my face mask and am pondering the wearing of rubber gloves. If you live anywhere near an interstate highway you are living near a disease thoroughfare. If ever there was a time to stay home it is now.
It is alarming to know the disease is in Texas, California, Kansas and New York already. Even *Barack Obama may have been exposed to the disease since he met with a person in Mexico who died from the disease only days after greeting him. Or are we to wait till thousands of Americans die from this disease? By the time we are aware of the magnitude of this vile killer it may very well be to late. The disease is popping up all over the place as it is. Maybe we will be OK but maybe we might be at the beginning of a plague like the one that struck back in 1918. The Center for Disease Control already said the situation is changing “rapidly” and I know it’s not for the better. The World Health Organization warned of a possibly pandemic.
I find it almost humorous that we will run around like chickens with out heads cut off for material things, like it’s the end of the world. But we will blow off a potential pandemic and ignore its deadly consequences. Take some time to protect yourself and avoid public places for a few days and see what happens. If the bug spreads then we maintain our isolation and protect our loved ones until the tide of death passes. Then we can go back to being whiney and broke.

Nothing exemplifies the American Spirit better than the successful rescue of the Maritime Captain Richard Phillips by our Navy Seals from pirates. But there is much more to this story fore it was a hero’s tale.
From the moment pirates decided to capture a container ship their fate was sealed in their own blood. Unwittingly they chose the wrong ship to play out their act of extortion. It was ironic this ship was filled with aid for an impoverished African country though. None the less, they boarded this vessel and tried in vain to take on this crew of sailors. Heroically this American crew repelled the armed marauders and was not going to be captured by anybody.
Sadly the captain was taken hostage in an effort to save his unarmed crew but so was one of the pirates. The crew and the pirates bartered to exchange prisoners. When the pirates reneged on the deal after their cohort was delivered the stalemate continued. The pirates revealed something that should be noted, they have absolutely no honor and their word is meaningless.
These pirates also revealed something to the world as well, the American Spirit is still alive and that we are the most unorthodox people on Earth. Our politicians should well take notice as well since it is this unorthodox and unconventional spirit that won world wars and faced down insurmountable odds. We don’t always do as we are told and when we are backed into a corner we will be like the mighty badger and fight like there is no tomorrow. When American’s had enough, they had enough. They will fight and fight hard and it took the crew of the container ship Maersk Alabama to reveal what American’s are really all about. The captain and his crew are AMERICAN heroes on many levels.
A high seas adventure would not be complete without the US Navy coming to the rescue and they came with a vengeance. The crew of the Maersk Alabama was at an impasse. The pirates reneged on the prisoner exchange but the US Navy had other plans. With the green light from President Obama the Navy mustered our elite Seals to end this act of extortion. With surgical skill the Seals made the day for these punks as one of them pointed an AK 47 at the back of Captain Phillips. Mess with the best and die with the rest.
It is clear these pirates drew first blood and perpetrated this crime on the high seas in the first place. So it is beyond stupid they are threatening revenge for our actions to save Captain Phillips life. Knowing these pirates have no honor at all should be an indicator that they are not to be bargained with. Their declaration of war against America over our rescue should not be taken lightly. The attempted assassination of American Congressman Donald Payne in Mogadishu, Somalia the day after the rescue is an act of war. This also shows a more ominous connection with the pirates on a national scale as a whole.
In any event it was good to hear that Captain Richard Phillips was rescued and American’s still have the grit to make a stand. As for the US Navy Seals, they kick ass.
