by lyle e davis There is hard evidence that Ghengis Khan was the Father of His Country . . . in more ways than one. Genghis Khan raped and murdered his way across Asia, and now his male descendent's account for 1/2% of the world population! To quote Ghengis Khan himself: "The greatest joy a man can know is to conquer his enemies and drive them before him. To ride their horses and take away their possessions. To see the faces of those who were dear to them bedewed with tears, and to clasp their wives and daughters in his arms" Both written history and genetic testing thoughout Central Asia have shown him to be among the most prolific rapists (and most prolific torturer, mutilator, murderer, genoThe Paper - 760.747.7119

As horrible as it sounds, rape has been a part of war since the beginning of time. Rape in the course of war is mentioned multiple times in the Bible: "For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped..." Zechariah 14:2 "Their little children will be dashed to death before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked, and their wives will be raped."Isaiah 13:16 Secret wartime files made public only in 2006 reveal that American GIs committed 400 sexual offenses in Europe, including 126 rapes in England, between 1942 and 1945. A study by Robert J. Lilly estimates that a total of 14,000 civilian women
in England, France and Germany were raped by American GIs during World War II. It is estimated that there were around 3,500 rapes by American servicemen in France between June 1944 and the end of the war, and one historian has claimed that sexual violence against women in liberated France was common.

At the end of World War II, Red Army soldiers are estimated to have raped around 2,000,000 German women and girls.
Often Khan took pleasure in sleeping with the wives and daughters of the enemy chiefs. His army commanders believed him to have extraordinary sexual powers, because he would sleep with many women every night.
Yet Ghengis Khan, by himself, appears to be responsible for more rapes than any other military figure or leader. The Mongol victory feasts were notorious. Genghis Khan and his commanders would tear at huge lumps of nearly raw horsemeat while captive girls were paraded for their inspection. Genghis Khan chose from
He measured their beauty in carats: if he rated them below a certain number they were sent to the tents of his officers.
We know he was one of history's greatest warriors, but new research shows Genghis Khan could have fathered thousands of children. It would be hard to exceed his record number of rapes. Yet he is still revered in Mongolia and in parts of China.

The 16 Million Children of Ghengis Khan The average man from the era of Genghis Khan would expect to have about 800 descendents. Instead, Genghis Khan has 16 million! Why? Documents written during or just after Khan's reign say that after a conquest, looting, pillaging, and rape were the spoils of war for all soldiers, but that Khan got first pick of the beautiful women. His grandson, Kubilai Khan, who established the Yuan Dynasty in China, had 22 legitimate sons, and was reported to have added 30 virgins to his harem each year. "The historically documented events accompanying the establishment of the Mongol empire would have contributed directly to the spread of this lineage," the researchers conclude.
so many descendants of Genghis Khan, not only because of the size of his harem but also because of the size of his sons' harems, and that they ruled their own separate kingdoms. Geneticists have found that nearly 8% of men that live in what was once the Mongol Empire (a rather large chunk of Asia) in the 13th century all carry identical y-chromosomes. All 16 million of these men (roughly half of a percent of all men in the world) are direct descendants of the Mongol leader, Genghis Khan. Physical Appearance

These nomads depended entirely on what they could gather from their environment. They ate livestock, dairy products, and wild game. And in times of starvation, they drank the blood of their horses.
Genghis Khan, however, was quite possibly the greatest military leader of all time. How did this ruthless warrior who grew from a poor, illiterate boy into one of the world’s greatest leaders—Genghis Khan, accomplish all this? After all, he was born into a Mongol clan of nomads,

No accurate portraits of Genghis Khan exist today, and any surviving depictions are considered to be artistic interpretations. Written records describe Genghis Khan as tall, long-bearded, red-haired, and green-eyed.
Genghis Khan was one of the most powerful warlords during his reign, as a result the harem that he kept was of enormous size. It is said that his harem reached anywhere from 2,000–3,000 women. There are

Some folks believe grits are grown on bushes and are harvested by midgets by shaking the bushes after spreading sheets around them. Many people feel that grits are made from ground up bits of white corn. These are obviously lies
Horses played a central role in Mongolian life as both food and transportation. Mongols learned to ride at a very young age and could shoot with their bows from any direction without falling from a horse—a skill that became particularly important in warfare. What was the key to Genghis’s success? A charismat-

The most recent research suggests that the mysterious Manna that God rained down upon the Israelites during their time in the Sinai Desert was most likely Grits. Critics disagree, stating that there is no record of biscuits, butter, salt, and red eye gravy raining down from the sky, and that God would not punish his people by forcing them to eat Grits without these key ingredients. How Grits are Formed Grits are formed deep underground under intense heat and pressure. It takes over 1000 years to form a single Grit. Most of the world’s grit mines are in the South, and are guarded day and night by armed guards and pit bull dogs. Harvesting the Grit is a dangerous occupation, and many Grit miners lose their lives each year so that Grits can continue to be served morning after morning for breakfast (not that having ‘Chuckles’ Cont. on Page 12

He built his army by forming strong alliances, rewarding loyalty and skill over family connections, and bringing defeated warriors into his band. To facilitate discipline and provide a clear chain of command, the troops were organized by tens. The ten men in the basic unit were responsible for each other—if one failed, all were punished. He built an empire that stretched from the coast of China to the Black Sea and pushed north into Russia. In size, his conquests exceeded that of both Alexander the Great and Napoleon. His name became synonymous with cruelty and terror. He butchered millions and trusted no one. Those he let live were burdened with hard work and heavy tribute. His army’s ability to travel quickly and live off the land allowed them to scout out villages and search for fertile terrain. Khan frequently used his murderous reputation to get villages to surrender without a fight and created an organized empire in which conquered villages were fairly autonomous as long as they paid their tribute on time. While it is hard to be sympathetic wtih a mass rapist and murderer, one must give the Devil his due and acknowledge that, at times, Ghengis Khan did have a more quiet, gentler side. He was religiously tolerant and interested in learning philosophical and moral lessons from other religions. To do so, he consulted Buddhist monks, Muslims, Christian missionaries, and the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji. Genghis Khan’s Conquests China (1207-1227) Khwarizm (1218-1220) Russia (1219-1224) His conquests allowed increased communication and trade between the West, Middle East and Asia, thus expanding the horizons of all three cultural areas. Some of the contributions Khan made: • Literacy and official record-keeping began with the first written Mongolian script, created by adapting the alphabet of the Uighur people of western Mongolia. • Councils of leaders and a “cabinet” of advisors drawn from different tribes and
nations were held to establish policies and make decisions. • Laws and directions, referred to as the Great Yasa, defined Mongol behavior. • Religious freedom was extended to all denominations in the belief that the support of religious leaders would foster good relations with the people. • Civil Service appointments were based on merit, regardless of nationality or connections. • International passports provided protection for the diplomatic representatives of any nation, facilitating safe passage and trade. • Rapid communication depended upon the Yam, an efficient mounted messenger postal, and intelliegence service. The main opponents of the Mongol confederation (traditionally the "Mongols") around 1200 were the Naimans to the west, the Merkits to the north, Tanguts to the south, and the Jin and Tatars to the east. By 1190, Temujin, (Ghengis Khan’s original name) his followers, and their advisors, had united the smaller Mongol confederation only. In his rule and his conquest of rival tribes, Temujin broke with Mongol tradition in a few crucial ways. As an incentive for absolute obedience and following his rule of law, the Yassa code, Temujin promised civilians and soldiers wealth from future possible war spoils. As he defeated rival tribes, he did not drive away enemy soldiers and abandon the rest. Instead, he took the conquered tribe under his protection and integrated its members into his own tribe. He would even have his mother adopt orphans from the conquered tribe, bringing them into his family. These political innovations inspired great loyalty among the conquered people, making Temujin stronger with each victory. His military strategies showed a deep interest in gathering good intelligence and understanding the motivations of his rivals as exemplified by his extensive spy network and Yam (postal) route systems. He seemed to be a quick student, adopting new technologies and ideas that he encountered, such as siege warfare from the Chinese. He was also ruthless. As a result, by 1206 Temüjin had managed to unite or subdue the Merkits, Naimans, Mongols, Keraits, Tatars, Uyghurs and other disparate smaller tribes under his rule. It was a monumental feat for the "Mongols" (as they became known collectively). At a council of Mongol chiefs, he was
acknowledged as "Khan" of the consolidated tribes and took the new title "Genghis Khan." This unification of all confederations by Genghis Khan established peace between previously warring tribes and a single political and military force under Genghis Khan.
the population and executed Inalchuq by pouring molten silver into his ears and eyes, as retribution for his actions. Near the end of the battle the Shah fled rather than surrender. The Shah died under mysterious circumstances on a small island within his empire.
During the 1206 political rise of Genghis Khan, the Mongol Empire created by him and his allies became even more powerful. In 1211, after the conquest of Western Xia, Genghis Khan planned again to conquer the Jin Dynasty. At this engagement fought at Badger Pass, the Mongols massacred thousands of Jin troops. In 1215 Genghis besieged, captured, and sacked the Jin capital of Yanjing (later known as Beijing).
Scholars describe the period after the Khwarizmian campaign as the Pax Mongolica era. (Mongolia Peace) In time, the conquests of Genghis Khan connected the major trade centers of China and Europe. The empire was governed by a legal code known as Yassa. Developed by Genghis Khan, the code was based on Mongol common law but contained edicts that prohibited blood feuds, adultery, theft, and bearing false witness.
In the early 13th century, the Khwarezmian Dynasty was governed by Shah Ala ad-Din Muhammad. Genghis Khan saw the potential advantage in Khwarezmia as a commercial trading partner using the Silk Road, and he initially sent a 500man caravan to establish official trade ties with the empire. However, Inalchuq, the governor of the Khwarezmian city of Otrar, attacked the caravan that came from Mongolia, claiming that the caravan contained spies and therefore was a conspiracy against Khwarezmia. The situation became further complicated because the governor later refused to make repayments for the looting of the caravans and handing over the perpetrators. Genghis Khan then sent again a second group of three ambassadors (two Mongols and a Muslim) to meet the Shah himself instead of the governor Inalchuq. The Shah had all the men shaved and the Muslim beheaded and sent his head back with the two remaining ambassadors. Outraged, Genghis Khan planned one of his largest invasion campaigns by organizing together around 200,000 soldiers, his most capable generals and some of his sons. The Mongol army under Genghis Khan, generals and his sons crossed the Tien Shan mountains by entering the area controlled by the Khwarezmian Empire. After compiling intelligence from many sources, he carefully prepared his army, which was divided into three groups, and attacked Khwarzemia from three directions. The Mongol army quickly seized the town of Otrar, relying on superior strategy and tactics. Genghis Khan ordered the wholesale massacre of many of the civilians, enslaved the rest of
Also included were laws that reflected Mongol respect for the environment such as forbidding bathing in rivers and streams and orders for any soldier following another to pick up anything that the first soldier dropped. Infraction of any of these laws was usually punishable by death. The Mongols' conquest, even by their own standards, was brutal. After the capital Samarkand fell, the capital was moved to Bukhara by the remaining men, and Genghis Khan dedicated two of his generals and their forces to completely destroy the remnants of the Khwarezmid Empire, including not only royal buildings, but entire towns, populations and even vast swaths of farmland. The Mongols attacked Samarkand. After the fortress fell, Genghis executed every soldier that had taken arms against him. The people of Samarkand were ordered to evacuate and assemble in a plain outside the city, where they were killed and pyramids of severed heads raised as a symbol of victory. AtaMalik Juvayni, a high official in the service of the Mongol empire, wrote that in Termez, on the Oxus, "all the people, both men and women, were driven out onto the plain, and divided in accordance with their usual custom, then they were all slain." The city of Bukhara was easily taken. The city leaders opened the gates to the Mongols. Artisans and craftsmen were sent back to Mongolia, young men who had not fought were drafted into the Mongolian army and the rest of the population was sent into slavery.

Page 4 - December 6, 2012 On November 29, 2012, at approximately 6:43 AM, the Escondido Police D e p a r t m e n t Communications Center received an emergency call regarding two subjects who were attempting to break into a residence in the 3900 Block of Foxley Drive. Officers arrived on scene and contacted the victims of attempted home invasion robbery. The suspects had fled the area and were not located after an extensive search of the area. During the incident, one of the victims exited the residence and saw a masked subject in the yard. While he confronted the subject, a second subject came from behind and hit him in the head several times with the grip of a handgun. During the confrontation, another resident began to exit the home. She was confronted by the original suspect who pointed a handgun at her. She retreated into the home and called the police. Both suspects fled the area in different directions. The first suspect is described as a white female in her early

With relatively few ballots left to count in elections throughout the county, Registrar Deborah Seiler said any last-minute changes to races appear unlikely.
Hugins has become a nail biter with 23-year-old challenger Michelle Fawcett coming to within 33 votes of pulling even with Hugins, 34 votes needed to win.
Seiler said her office will certify the election by the end of the day Tuesday. Under state law, the Registrar of Voters office has 28 days to certify an election.
Hugins' lead over Fawcett shrunk from 50 votes to 33 votes Monday, but the number of uncounted ballots countywide dropped from 7,500 on Friday to 1,000 on Monday.
The law does not mention a time the election must be certified, so the work could continue until well after 5 p.m. Tuesday, she said. Provisional ballots are cast on election day but set aside because of eligibility questions. Many were from voters at the wrong polling places, while others were cast by voters who had requested a mailin ballot. Prop. EE had 80,900 votes in support and 66,600 against it.

I was amazed at (a) how terrible the acting was, (b) how weak and predictable the story line was, (c) how weak the writing was (you and I could have written a better script with more realistic dialogue), and (d) how easy it apparently was to pawn off a bad movie to a public that worshiped John Wayne. John Wayne was a great personality. He was not a great actor. He had one character he always played in every movie. John Wayne. I liked him. I liked him a lot.
Hugins, 59, has held the treasurer's job since 1984. Fawcett has two years' experience as a professional accountant.

Female Pedestrian Hit and Killed by Car A 48-year-old woman, believed to be a transient died early Tuesday after being hit by a car near the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. The woman, as yet unidentified, is said to frequent the area and is believed to be originally from the San Bernardino area. The driver, who is an employee at the power plant, was heading south on Old Highway 101 south of Basilone Road on his way to work about 3:20 a.m. when the woman stepped right in front of him. He was only traveling at about 35 mph but the impact was still sufficient to kill the woman, who died at the scene. Whether it was a simple lack of caution or an intentional suicide by the woman is unknown at this time. While the woman appears to be known to police and area residents, she has not yet been identified. Police continue to investigate. No charges have been filed at this time against the driver.

‘Ghengis Khan’ Cont. from Page 3 After another city, Urgench, fell, the Persian scholar, Juvayni, states that 50,000 Mongol soldiers were given the task of executing twenty-four Urgench citizens each, which would mean that 1.2 million people were killed. In the Persian city of Merv, an ancient seat of learning regarded as the pearl of Asia, Genghis Khan committed one of the greatest unmechanised mass killings in history, second only to the massacres of Armenians by Turks in 1915. For four days, the population was led out from the city walls to the plains to be slaughtered. A group of Persians later spent 13 days counting the people slain. These massacres were said to be the bloodiest in history. After the defeat of the Khwarezmian Empire in 1220, Genghis Khan gathered his forces in Persia and Armenia to return to the Mongolian steppes. Under the suggestion of Subutai, the Mongol army was split into two forces. Genghis Khan led the main army on a raid through Afghanistan and northern India towards

Mongolia, while another 20,000 contingent marched through the Caucasus and into Russia. They pushed deep into Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Mongols destroyed the kingdom of Georgia, sacked the Genoese trade-fortress of Caffa in Crimea and overwintered near the Black Sea. Heading home, Subutai's forces attacked the allied forces of Russia, including Kieve and surrounding areas. After an initial offer of peace was rebuffed, and his emissaries killed, the Russian princes then sued for peace. In southern Russia, Khan's Mongol armies destroyed a combined Russian army four times bigger. The surviving leaders, including Prince Romanovitch of Kiev, surrendered on the understanding that no blood would be shed. It wasn't. The Russian princes were given a bloodless death. Subutai had a large wooden platform constructed on which he ate his meals along with his other generals. Six Russian princes, including Romanovitch, were put under this platform and crushed to death. In 1225 both divisions returned to Mongolia. These invasions added Transoxiana and Persia to an already formidable empire while destroying any resistance along the way. Later under

Genghis Khan's grandson Batu and the Golden Horde, the Mongols returned to conquer Volga Bulgaria and the Kievan Rus in 1237, concluding the campaign in 1240. Genghis Khan left behind an army of more than 129,000 men; 28,000 were given to his various brothers and his sons. Tolui, his youngest son, inherited more than 100,000 men. This force contained the bulk of the elite Mongolian cavalry. By tradition, the youngest son inherits his father's property. Jochi, Chagatai, Ögedei Khan, and Kulan's son Gelejian received armies of 4,000 men each. His mother and the descendants of his three brothers received 3,000 men each. In Turkey, Genghis Khan is looked on as a great military leader, and it is popular for male children to carry his title as name. While The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead adopting an approach grounded in merit, there was an exception. The exception was the role of Genghis Khan and his family. The Mongol Empire was one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse empires in history, as

befitted its size. Traditionally Genghis Khan had been revered for centuries among the Mongols, and also among certain other ethnic groups such as the Turks, largely because of his association with Mongol statehood, political and military organization, and his historic victories in war. He eventually evolved into a larger-than-life figure chiefly among the Mongols and is still considered the symbol of Mongolian culture. There were tax exemptions for religious figures and, to some extent, teachers and doctors. The Mongol Empire practiced religious tolerance because Mongol tradition had long held that religion was a personal concept, and not subject to law or interference. Sometime before the rise of Genghis Khan, Ong Khan, his mentor and eventual rival, had converted to Nestorian Christianity. Various Mongol tribes were Buddhist, Muslim, shamanist or Christian. Religious tolerance was thus a well established concept on the Asian steppe. Genghis Khan realized that he needed people who could gov-

Page 10 - December 6, 2012 ‘Ghengis Khan’ Cont. from Page 7 ern cities and states conquered by him. He also realized that such administrators could not be found among his Mongol people because they were nomads and thus had no experience governing cities. Genghis Khan is regarded as one of the prominent leaders in Mongolia's history. He is responsible for the emergence of the Mongols as a political and ethnic identity because there was no unified identity between the various tribes that had cultural similarity. He is also given credit for the introduction of the traditional Mongolian script and the creation of the Ikh Zasag, the first written Mongolian law. In summary, Mongolians see him as the fundamental figure in the founding of the Mongol Empire, and therefore the basis for Mongolia as a country. It was on August 18, 1227, during a campaign against the Tangut people of northwestern China, that Genghis Khan died. At the time of his death, the Mongol Empire stretched from the Caspian Sea to the Sea of Japan. The empire's expansion continued for a generation or more after Genghis's death in 1227. Under Genghis's successor, Ögedei Khan, the Mongol Empire came into conflict with the imperial Song Dynasty of China, starting a war that lasted until 1279 and that concluded with the Mongols gaining control of all of China. They also pushed further into Russia and eastern Europe. So just who was Ghengis Khan? How did he become one of the world’s greatest and most brutal of leaders? Genghis Khan was born in north central Mongolia around 1155 and named "Temujin" When his father, a local chieftain, was poisoned by the Tatar tribe, a struggle for leadership of the tribe ensued and Temujin was forced to flee for his life. At 16, Temujin married Borte, cementing the alliance between the Konkirat tribe and his own. Soon after, Borte was kidnapped by the rival Merkit tribe and given to a chieftain as a wife. Temujin was able to rescue her and soon after she gave birth to her first son, Jochi. Though Borte's captivity with the Konkirat tribe cast doubt on Jochi's birth, Temujhin accepted him as his own. With Borte, Temujin had four sons and many other children with other wives, as was Mongolian cus-
tom. However, only his male children with Borte qualified for succession in the family. Though married to Borte, he had many wives during his lifetime. At 20, he began building a large army with the intent to destroy individual tribes in Northeast Asia and unite them under his rule. Temujin began his slow ascent to power by building a large army of more than 20,000 men. He set out to destroy traditional divisions among the various tribes and unite the Mongols under his rule. Through a combination of outstanding military tactics and merciless brutality, Temujin avenged his father's murder by decimating the Tatar army and ordered the killing of every Tatar male. Temujin's Mongols then defeated, the Taichi'ut, using a series of massive cavalry attacks, and had all the Taichi'ut chiefs boiled alive. By 1206, Temujin also had defeated the powerful Naiman tribe, thus giving him control of central and eastern Mongolia.

Indeed, my father not only DID work at the Martin Bomber Plant but actually worked on the Enola Gay. Dad was fond of telling the story about the rookie employee who was up in the cockpit of the aircraft one day and spoke into a tube “Pilot to Bombardier, Bombs Away!” The other mechanics had a good laugh as the rookie was speaking into the relief tube (the tube crew members used for urination). While I was born in the huge metropolis of Windom, Minnesota (population 4646 as of the 2010 census) I did grow up in Omaha. In fact, dad left

I can still remember as a child, driving to Bellevue and sitting at the end of the runway, watching the different aircraft warming up their engines prior to takeoff. I often wonder how many of those young pilots we observed came back from the war and how many perished. I remember the sights and sounds of those bombers and their pilots as though it were yesterday. Which, of course, it was.

SPEND IT! In Escondido
Be Heard San Marcos:
With the busiest shopping season of the year in full swing now, this is a good time to remind residents about a community awareness campaign called Spend It! In Escondido. The focus of the campaign is to educate community members about the importance of shopping in Escondido. Every taxable dollar spent in Escondido benefits important City-provided services such as police and fire, senior services, libraries, street maintenance, street lights, parks and recreation. Sales tax generated from Escondido transactions (1% of
gross taxable sales), stays in Escondido and contributes to the quality of life you enjoy. Purchases generating sales tax revenue are critical to a healthy Escondido economy. But it’s not just about sales tax revenue: While the goal is to increase sales during the busiest shopping time of the year, there are other positives to shopping locally. If you stay in town, you save on gas, you discover new businesses you might not have otherwise visited, and you contribute to community pride and the health of the Escondido business environment. More information about Spend It! In Escondido is available online at www.escondido.org/spend-it-inescondido.aspx
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders When I was first elected Mayor in the fall of 2005, the City of San Diego was facing a mountain of debt after years of mismanagement and corruption. Our underfunded pension system had the New York Times calling our beloved city Enron by the Sea, and that was only the tip of the iceberg. I have spent the last 7 years since my inauguration working to right our ship of state. I’m proud to say that we’ve turned what looked like an insurmountable deficit, into a projected budget surplus of almost $200 million over the next five years. We reformed our pension and employee health systems, saving the city hundreds of millions of dollars over the coming decades. We saved more than $10 mil-

What’s more, I’ve seen the culmination of 30 years of hard work come to pass in the construction of our new Central Library, which will open its doors next summer. This library will provide education opportunities to our whole city. We’ve also laid the groundwork to expand our Convention Center into a world class facility that will offer the largest exhibition space on the West Coast, and beautiful rooftop park. Looking further ahead, we got the ball rolling on a fantastic centennial celebration for Balboa Park in 2015, which will be all the more special with the reclamation of the Plaza de Panama.
As you know much of today’s modern technology is continually changing and television is no exception. Back in 2007, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began by mandating that all new television sets in the United States be equipped with digital tuners. As the years continued, the FCC continued making changes so that finally we would all be required to receive television broadcasts in digital and not analog format.
I want to thank San Diegans for giving me the opportunity to serve as their mayor. It has been an honor.

time is up for those of us still receiving analog reception – December 13, 2012 is the big day. This should not affect too many individuals, but the end result is that if you do not already have digital service, then you need to contact a service provider as soon as possible to make arrangements for television viewing options.

Page 12 - December 6, 2012 failing scheme to force acceptance of W8 by denying retailer’s access to Win 7.
Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Windows 8 Killing PC Sales?
TV and print advertising celebrate the wildly successful introduction of W8. Steve (Monkey Boy) Ballmer, CEO and head cheerleader for Microsoft (if you need a good chuckle type “monkey boy Ballmer” into any search engine) enthusiastically announced that 40 million copies of W8 were sold since it was introduced four weeks ago. Industry surveys reports PC sales dropped by 21% in the same period. What’s wrong here? The facts are that Microsoft sells massive quantities of W8 to its channel partners because of enforced “quotas.” Consumers aren’t buying, PC sales are tanking and unsold inventories of W8 licenses and PCs are piling up. Ballmer knows it but he still tries to put a positive spin on what’s beginning to look like Microsoft’s
Up till now most of the PC industry has cooperated with Microsoft on the retail push for W8. Even retail sales clerks have been instructed to tell skeptical customers that, with a few adjustments, W8 can be made to run just like Win 7. It isn’t true. W8 will need some serious work if it ever is to be acceptable to mainstream PC users. W8 hard sell efforts are being aimed at retail customers only. Microsoft knows that 90% of business users will skip W8 altogether. Business channels will be permitted to continue selling new Win 7 PCs for years. If Microsoft’s W8 strategy continues to suppress PC sales, PC manufacturers, marketers and retailers will put pressure on Microsoft to allow them to reintroduce Win 7 back into retail channels.
retail customers on the basis of comparative specifications or quality. They know consumers and even their own employees wouldn’t understand. As a result, advertising strategies are based on either price or emotion, not facts. Retail stores know that many retail buyers will simply opt for PCs with the lowest price so price competition is keen. Dell, HP and other major sellers constantly pressure their Asian PC suppliers for ever cheaper “branded” PCs. They compensate for low margins by stuffing cheap retail PCs with “bloatware” (third party ads). Retailers feature these low priced “door-busters” in their ads and hope to “up-sell” customers to more profitable models.
Ads to entice the less price sensitive customers seek to create an emotional response. They feature beautiful people in attractive settings doing cool things with their gadgets. They cry out to us “Buy our product and you will be beautiful and cool.” Remember the “Dell Dude” and the Apple “PC vs. Mac” ads? They didn’t really inform much but they were highly effective in creating a favorable impression for the product (or negative impression of the competition). Will Microsoft be forced to back off and allow Win 7 to return to retail distribution as they were with both Windows ME and Windows Vista? Will history repeat? We shouldn’t have long to W8.
As a retail commodity PCs are unique. Nearly everyone has one but few users really know enough about them to make informed buying decisions. Auto manufacturers can talk specifics like, MPG, zero to sixty in 5.3 seconds, 325 horsepower and features understood by consumers. PC speeds, quality, features and the difference between operating systems are mysteries to most buyers and even most retail sales personnel. Manufacturers and retail stores don’t bother trying to sell

Grateful for Garrick’s Service
New Senators and Assemblymembers were sworn into office last week. As a returning legislator, I welcomed the new members and noted the absence of former colleagues. Assemblyman Martin Garrick is one of the termed-out legislators that I will greatly miss. We worked together to serve many of the same regions in North San Diego County. While collaborating on projects and attending district events together, I witnessed Assemblyman Garrick’s dedication and leadership. He worked diligently on behalf of the 74th Assembly District. In
Assemblyman Garrick maintained the same approach as he advocated for the state of California. He introduced legislation and cast votes that represented the values that he was elected to promote and that he knew were in the state’s best interest. Garrick’s voting record demonstrated his priorities: economic development, fiscal responsibility, and job creation. The National Federation of Independent Business, the California Chamber of Commerce and the California’s Taxpayer’s Association all recognized Garrick for his voting record. Please join me in thanking my friend and colleague, Assemblyman Martin Garrick, for his work and service.

‘Ghengis Khan’ Cont. from Page 10 The early success of the Mongol army owed much to the brilliant military tactics of Genghis Khan and his understanding of his enemies' motivations. The well-trained Mongol army of 80,000 fighters coordinated their advance with a sophisticated signaling system of smoke and burning torches. Large drums sounded commands to charge, and further orders were conveyed with flag signals. Every soldier was fully equipped with bow, arrows, shield, dagger, and lasso. He also carried large saddlebags for food, tools, and spare clothes. The saddlebag was waterproof and could be inflated to serve as a life preserver when crossing deep and swift-moving rivers. Cavalrymen carried a small sword, javelins, body armor, a battle-ax or mace, and a lance with a hook to pull enemies off their horses. Khan’s military tactics included moving at an unprecedented speed. Each of his men kept three to four horses so that they could travel as much as 100 miles a day. They were experts in horsemanship and in archery. They were devastating in their attacks. Because they could maneuver a galloping horse using only their legs, their hands were free to shoot arrows. They usually attacked by surprise and overran a territory with amazing speed. His tactics were not to be duplicated until the twentieth century with tanks and Hitler’s “blitzkrieg” warfare. The entire army was followed by a well-organized supply system of oxcarts carrying food for soldiers and beasts alike, as well as military equipment, shamans for spiritual and medical aid, and officials to catalog the booty. Khan, his generals and his armies also learned new battle strategies and applied them. Among their tried and true techniques as well as acquired tactics: • Spy networks that spent months before an attack scouting defenses, mapping roads and escape routes, noting supply sources, and gathering intelligence on local defense and infrastructure. • Coordinated attacks that included ambush, hit-and-run, and wave attacks. One of the most successful strategies was the feigned retreat, in which Genghis’s troops would fake defeat and run, only to turn on pursuing enemies.
• Rapid communication that included using swift riders and a system of relay stations to pass messages to and from the battlefront. But traditional Mongol weapons and tactics were no longer effective when attacking walled cities. So the Mongols adopted large siege weapons from the Chinese, Persians, and Arabs, and developed effective new strategies, including: • Catapulting large stones, diseased animals, and flaming naptha bombs over the walls. • Isolating the city and cutting off supplies to starve inhabitants. • Damming or rerouting a stream to flood the town. • Lighting extra campfires and placing straw soldiers on spare horses to make the Mongol army appear larger than it was. • The Mongol army traveled with a corps of engineers who were able to quickly build bridges, ladders, and other equipment from available materials. The Mongols became as efficient—and frightening—at siege warfare as they were at cavalry attacks, leaving entire cities in ruins and complete populations homeless. Although the campaign against the Jin Dynasty lasted nearly 20 years, Genghis Khan's armies were also active in the west against border empires and the Muslim world. By the time of his death, Genghis Khan had created an empire that covered most of Asia. Iin just 25 short years, Genghis Khan’s army had conquered more lands and people than the Romans did during their entire 400-year rule. His Mongol Empire ended up ruling, or briefly conquering, large parts of modern day China, Mongolia, Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Moldova, South Korea, North Korea and Kuwait. He had several sons who carried on his rule. His grandson Kublai Khan, who established the Yuan Dynasty in China, had 22 legitimate sons, and was reported to have added 30 virgins to his harem each year. He eventually became the ruler of China.

‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 as the kidnapped grandson in the movie; Christopher Mitchum, son of the actor, Robert Mitchum, played Michael, another of the McCandles sons’ and Bobby Vinton, the singer, was the third son, Jeff McCandles. Oh yes, the producer was Michael Wayne, also John Wayne's son. Noted for particularly bad acting was Patrick Wayne and Chris Mitchum. Really bad. Costing $4.8 million to produce it only generated $7.5 milllion in revenue . . . hardly a box office smash . . . though it did cover costs and generate a profit for Batjac Productions (John Wayne's Production Company). As I watched this movie I kept asking myself, "why are you watching this? It's terrible!" And the answer was, a perverse delight in seeing just to see how it ended and if the dialogue and/or story might improve. It didn't. The ending matched the terrible dialogue. Sometimes it's fun watching old films. Sometimes, not so much. ••••• I’m afraid when it comes to films, I’m a bit of a contrarian. Not only did I not like "Lincoln," but I was so bored with it I fell asleep several times, particularly in the early stages of the film. Why didn't I like it? Anything with Spielberg attached to it is magic, right? Wrong! I found myself thinking . . . "those are a bunch of actors up there on the screen, acting . . . " Anytime you're aware of the costuming, the lighting, the cinematography, the actors themselves . . . the film fails. One needs to be transported away from reality and follow the action on the screen, to be absorbed by the story . . . that didn't happen for me. I also found myself regretting we hadn't gone to see "Skyfall," the new James Bond movie . . . or even "Flight," with Denzel Washington, whom I love. Everyone whom I respect
raved about "Lincoln." Several said they, too, loved Denzel but that "Flight" wasn't all that much. Most have said "Skyfall" is an action packed, fun movie to watch. Perhaps my expectations were too high, based on the recommendations of many good friends? I dunno. I don't think that's it. I was simply bored. I found myself comparing "Lincoln" to a Ken Burns PBS documentary and figured Ken Burns would have done a much better, more interesting job. I've watched Ken Burns documentaries on the Civil War, the Dust Bowl, Baseball . . . and all were absolutely riveting. Not so, "Lincoln," at least for me. Evelyn, on the other paw, enjoyed it. But, then, Evelyn also likes me . . . so one might question her taste. (This was the first movie we had gone to for about three years. I think we'll go see "Skyfall." I hope I enjoy that more than "Lincoln.") One man's opinion. You may love it. I didn't. ••••• Didn’t realize it until I stopped in for a new car battery at American Battery Corporation in Escondido (525 W. Washington) but Joe Meck, their Manager and Big High Mucky Muck has been there for 30 years, almost since the day they opened. I’ve dealt with him for all those years (though I didn’t realize they had slipped by so quickly) and we’ve always had top level service and product from Joe. For many years we owned “Lyle’s at Dixon Lake” and would buy many batteries for our battery powered boat fleet. I sold my business to the city of Escondido in 2004 and today the city of Escondido continues to buy their batteries from American Battery and a still young Joe Meck. I love dealing with professionals and folks who give you prompt and great service. Joe Meck and his crew are such people and American Battery is such a business. I heartily endorse and recommend them if you have battery problems. They’ll handle it.
