Ohio Judge Permits Student To Wear "Jesus Is Not A Homophobe" Tee Shirt Whenever He Wants. And Pays Him.

As usual, the Waynesville, Ohio public school had to back down against the powerful gay Lamda Legal organization which lawyered up for a gay student who wanted to wear a "Jesus Is Not A Homophobe" tee shirt in school. Well, the student, not knowing much about Jesus to begin with, should have understood that Jesus fears nothing, but he will judge many things, such as adultery, homosexuality, etc. if there is no repentance. I asked the Ohio judge, who made the decision, if a student could be allowed to wear a shirt saying, "God Judged Sodom and Gomorrah."

The said judge, Michael Barrett, appointed by George W. Bush,no less, also awarded the gay teen $20,000 of the school district's money. The ACLU and similar orgs have taken discipline out of schools, and replaced it with a no rules pandemonium. Schools simply back down from lawsuits initiated by their liberal lawyer brethren.

Judges are people,too, so why not drop one a line?

Honorable Judge Michael Barrett United States District Court Southern District Of Ohio (Open Letter) Potter Stewart U.S. Courthouse, Room 239 100 East Fifth Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202

Dear Judge Barrett,

To say the decision to allow the gay boy, Maverick Couch, to wear his "Jesus Is Not A Homophobe," tee shirt in public school is bewildering, is an understatement of the highest order. I am especially amazed at all the pro LBGTQ (Questioning) zeitgeist within the American press, academia, Hollywood, Congress, as well as the Executive and Judicial branches of government. How has the homosexual lobby caused so many otherwise sensible people to bend over frontward for their cause (including VAWA), thus giving the heterosexual community even fewer rights than those so privileged to be a minority, especially, the more cause celebre - gays?

Its as if the pro gay sympathizers feel they are on some sort of messianic mission to nourish the homosexual agenda. Either that, or they have been hypnotically mesmerized by Lady Gaga.

Discipline is already non existent in so many public schools, yet, school children have been given even more license to disrupt classes with such "in your face" sacrilegious as well as politically biased self expressive clothing. I spent many years in Catholic school, as I suggest you also have, Judge Barrett, so possibly you have forgotten that discipline in parochial schools has made it much easier to learn - without distraction - due to rules. You have rules of court, so why not allow schools to have rules? Such mundane policies as requiring school uniforms has encouraged, at least, a bit more semblance of order within the same schools. Why seek to destroy such policies?

Will students be allowed to wear "Jesus Judged Sodom and Gomorrah" apparel, resulting from your decision? The repercussions of this decision are endless.

Black Stone Capital Fired Thousands, Gives Obama $1,000,000

No sooner had President Obama released a "Bain Capital Video" which highlights the hatcheting job Mitt Romney did to poor performing companies, that he attended a high roller fundraiser at Black Stone Investment which awarded the President with a cool million bucks at the $36,000 a plate dinner. Note: Black Stone Capital has been responsible for firing untold thousands of workers through various "investment" programs. Here is a record of 800+ who were placed on the chopping block via Black Stone:

How a Blackstone Deal
Shook Up a Work Force
Layoffs at Travelport,
Dividend for Investors;
'On Pins and Needles'

July 27, 2007; Page A1

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Not long after the Blackstone Group bought Travelport Ltd. last August, workers at the company's office campus here began feeling the squeeze.
Two months after the deal closed, scores of employees were lugging boxes of personal belongings to their cars, having lost their jobs. Under Blackstone's ownership, the travel-reservations conglomerate has laid off 841 people, about 10% of its work force. Blackstone, a private-equity firm, has already recouped all of the money it invested in Travelport.

• The Situation: After Blackstone Group bought Travelport, changes came swiftly for some workers.
• The Background: To capitalize on their investments more quickly, private-equity firms have been overhauling companies faster.
• The Bottom Line: Travelport has laid off 841 workers, and Blackstone has already recouped its investment.
Similar scenes have been unfolding at companies around the nation, a human toll of the corporate-buyout boom. Private-equity firms, which say they bring sorely needed financial discipline to poorly run companies, have been slashing costs and extracting profits at warp speed. As the cycle of buying and selling companies has intensified, life in the trenches can be unstable and traumatic.
By the end of 2007, Travelport expects to slash costs by $150 million. Last week, it brought public its online reservations unit, Orbitz Worldwide Inc., using the proceeds to pay off debt. Its Galileo unit, which feeds airline information to travel agents, is the focus of much of the overhaul. Many of the job cuts have occurred at the company's data-operations center here outside Denver, where some jobs have been outmoded by shifts in technology and in the way people buy airline tickets and rent cars, executives say.

John Kliegel, 41 years old, a computer-systems analyst, and his twin, Russell, a technical writer, were both laid off. They're selling the house they share because they can no longer afford it. Don Kleppinger, a 46-year-old software engineer with five sons, lost his job, leaving him without health insurance for several months. Grace Covyeau, 63, who lost her job as a telecommunications engineer, took a part-time job last month making sandwiches and coffee at King Soopers grocery store.
"It came as a shock," says Michael Berson, 49, who lost his job as a data engineer in October, three years after receiving a "Super Star" award for saving the company $1.2 million on telecommunications costs. Mr. Berson has moved to Tulsa, where he is looking for a new job.

In addition to the 841 layoffs, 1,500 Travelport workers have left voluntarily since the buyout. The company says it has hired 1,582 new workers during that period, and has invested heavily in new technology.

Travelport Chief Executive Jeff Clarke describes the Centennial operation as the "factory" through which thousands of transactions pass every second. "We need to shift into new technologies," he says. "Some require productivity improvements and often will lead to layoffs."

To complete their $4.3 billion Travelport purchase, Blackstone and Technology Crossover Ventures, a Palo Alto, Calif., venture-capital firm that now owns 11%, invested $1 billion and borrowed the rest. That debt landed on Travelport's balance sheet. In March, Travelport borrowed an additional $1.1 billion and paid it out as a dividend to the two firms, returning all their money in just seven months.

"This is likely one of the quickest returns of invested capital for a private-equity deal of its size," Travelport's new chief financial officer, Michael Rescoe, said in a May conference call with analysts.

The buyout boom has been lucrative for Blackstone partners and investors, which include large institutions such as pension funds. Last year, Blackstone managed assets valued at about $88 billion and earned $2.27 billion, according to a prospectus for its own initial public offering in June. Its chief executive, Stephen Schwarzman, who resides in a 35-room Manhattan apartment, made more than $650 million on the offering and retained a 24% stake now worth more than $5 billion.
Such riches raise hackles among laid-off workers. "These investments are helping the fat cats by hurting the little guys," says Ms. Covyeau. "It'll make you sick."
Over the past five years, private-equity firms have bought more than 10,000 companies. This year, through June, 1,399 deals worth $582 billion have been announced, according to data provider Dealogic.

In order to recoup their investments quickly, buyout firms are speeding up everything -- closing deals more swiftly, cutting jobs and restructuring companies faster, and taking them public sooner. They've also been taking big cash payments out of the companies they buy, as Blackstone did with Travelport. These payments, known as "dividend recapitalizations," reached a record $25 billion in 2006, and are on pace to exceed that amount this year, according to Standard & Poor's Corp. In 2001, they amounted to just $1 billion. The payments increase pressure to cut costs.
"Layoffs are far more likely at firms that pay these dividends," says Steven Bavaria, who oversees bank-loan ratings at Standard & Poor's. "Employees left behind are doing more work, looking over their shoulders, feeling stressed."
At a congressional hearing in May, the Private Equity Council, a lobbying group, testified that buyouts often result in long-term job growth. It cited the Carlyle Group's 2005 purchase of auto-parts company AxleTech International Holdings Inc., which grew to 568 from 425 workers after it began supplying parts to military-vehicle makers.

In other cases, job cuts follow buyouts. After buying Hertz Global Holdings Inc. for $15 billion from Ford Motor Co. in late 2005, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Inc. and a unit of Merrill Lynch & Co. collected a $1 billion dividend, then took the company public. This year, Hertz cut more than 2,000 jobs, or about 8% of its work force.
Last summer, Blackstone teamed up with Carlyle, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and other buyout firms to buy VNU, the parent of Nielsen Media Research and ACNielsen, for about $10 billion. In December, the firm announced 4,100 job cuts, about 10% of its work force.

"None of us wants a single job to be cut," says Paul "Chip" Schorr IV, the Blackstone senior managing director who orchestrated the purchase of Travelport and now serves as its chairman. Mr. Schorr, 40, joined Blackstone in 2005 from the venture-capital arm of Citigroup Inc.

The layoffs at Travelport were one of many steps taken to revamp the company. All told, Travelport has reduced operating costs by 6%, the company says.
Before Blackstone bought it, Travelport was operating as the Travel Distribution Systems unit of Cendant Corp., a travel and real-estate conglomerate based in Parsippany, N.J. Cendant's founder and chief executive, Henry Silverman, a former Blackstone partner, had cobbled together Cendant's travel unit through a series of acquisitions.

Galileo, which Cendant bought in 2001, gets paid by airlines to feed information about airline schedules, pricing and inventory to travel agents. In addition, it runs the reservations system for United Airlines. Galileo is the largest contributor of Travelport revenue, which totaled $2.6 billion last year.

That business has been suffering. The Sept. 11 attacks curtailed airline travel, as did the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. In 2003, struggling airlines reduced the fees they paid to middlemen such as Galileo.
Cendant also had gotten into the online travel-agency business by buying Orbitz, which competes with Travelocity, Expedia and others. Each time consumers use the site to book reservations for flights, rental cars and hotels, Orbitz collects a fee. As more consumers turned to the Internet for travel planning, the business grew.
But as airlines and hotels began handling reservations through their own Web sites, the middlemen lost business. In 2001, systems such as Galileo had handled 70% of airline reservations, according to Forrester Research, a market-research firm. These days, such systems handle just 50%. Cendant began laying off employees, and in 2005, it decided to split itself into four parts.

Mr. Schorr believed that Cendant hadn't fully integrated the systems behind the travel businesses it had acquired. "It was like having a house with eight kitchens," he says. If it eliminated overlapping systems, he believed, the business could become more efficient. He also saw growing opportunities in foreign markets such as the Middle East and Asia.

On Aug. 23, the day Blackstone took over, Mr. Clarke wrote to employees on an internal blog: "For most of us, our jobs won't change." Mr. Clarke, who had become chief executive a few months earlier, previously held senior positions at Computer Associates and at Compaq Computer Corp.

Some employees believed Blackstone's arrival would ease the belt-tightening and stress that had begun under Cendant. "A lot of us thought these layoffs would stop," says Gina Fugazzi, 51, who oversaw the company's voice systems in the U.S. "There was no more to cut."

Others had heard enough about how private-equity firms operate to be concerned about their jobs. Ms. Covyeau, the telecommunications manager, says many employees were "aware that the pattern at private-equity firms was streamlining work forces." Anxiety, she says, began rising.

In the blog, Mr. Clarke noted to employees that Travelport intended to re-engineer operations to reduce overlap and to eliminate "activities that are not contributing to our success."

The company decided to overhaul the telecommunications center housed in Centennial. "We are automating work that was done manually," explains Mr. Clarke.
Within weeks of the buyout, at a meeting with employees in Centennial, some managers warned that more cuts were coming. Ms. Covyeau says she began packing her boxes and told a manager: "Please, just give me a severance package and let me out of here."
One morning in October, managers in Centennial sent emails instructing employees to report to various conference rooms and cafeterias. Ms. Fugazzi says her heart sank when she walked into her designated room and found only about 20 people. "I suddenly realized I was in a group getting laid off," she says. A colleague, she recalls, spotted a tray of bagels and coffee and chortled: "Looks like this is our last supper."

A manager told them their jobs were being cut for economic reasons, according to several people who were there. Some employees burst into tears; others stared stoically. "I was devastated," recalls Ms. Fugazzi, who says she had planned to retire in four years. "I had the mentality that if you worked hard, you could keep your job forever."

When they got back to their desks, their email had been disabled. Guards lingered while employees filled boxes with belongings. The company declined to provide written references. In the confusion, some employees say, they were inadvertently given a wrong number to call about benefits -- it was a sex line. A company spokesman says only eight employees received the incorrect number, and the company corrected the mistake right away.

All told, Travelport laid off about 500 people that month, including veterans in their 50s and 60s who say they had good performance reviews and relatively high salaries of about $100,000.

Most of the layoffs occurred at Galileo. Gordon Wilson, Galileo's London-based chief executive, said in a written statement that many of the jobs had been outmoded by technology. For example, travel agents used to connect to Galileo's system by phone. Now, many of them access it via the Internet.

The company offered laid-off employees two weeks severance for every year they worked, according to several employees. Mr. Wilson declined to provide details about the severance packages, which he called "generous."

In December, Travelport announced the acquisition of Worldspan, one of Galileo's chief competitors, for $1.4 billion. At a Christmas party at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a Travelport executive assured remaining employees that 2007 would be more stable, according to people who were there.

In January, Mr. Clarke, the chief executive, reorganized Travelport into three brands -- Orbitz, Galileo and Gullivers Travel Associates, a wholesaler of hotel rooms and group tours. The company continued to cut jobs.

Galileo's Mr. Wilson says he has warned employees of "further changes" as the company completes the Worldspan acquisition. The deal could produce about $100 million in cost savings through the consolidation of sales staffs, data centers, and other operations, Mr. Clarke says.

In this year's first quarter, Travelport's profits were up 36% over the year-earlier period, to $157 million. Half of the profit improvement was because of revenue growth, the company says, 25% was because of vendor-related cost reductions and 25% was from productivity improvements, including reductions in the work force.
Mr. Wilson says Travelport's debt load has made it more urgent to generate cash. "If we can accelerate the reduction of our debt and therefore lessen our interest payments," he says, "no one would expect management to do otherwise."
With the Worldspan merger looming, employees at both companies say they are worried about their jobs. "We are all on pins and needles," says one employee. "Everybody here feels it's only a matter of time."

For many laid-off employees, finding new jobs hasn't been easy. Danny Carrasco, a software developer in his 50s, searched for five months before finding a job at a telecommunications company. Technical analyst Robert Renwick, 30, sent out more than 100 résumés over four months before landing a job at the local school district. He and his wife, a first-grade teacher, put off having children, he says. "I can't believe they would ruin all these lives to make a couple extra pennies," he says.
John Kliegel is earning 33% less as a program manager at a satellite company. His twin, Russell, is juggling job hunting with free-lancing. Mr. Kleppinger, the software engineer, once expected to retire at Travelport. He's now earning 20% less at a new job.

After months of searching, writing résumés and reading books on how to interview, Ms. Fugazzi landed a job with the Colorado Department of Human Services. She earns about $33,000 less than she did at Travelport, counting her old bonus. But the government job, she says, "feels more secure."

Is "Gay Week" Finally Over?

I know that in the media every week is "Gay Week," but the past seven days have been non stop gay agenda lobbying from the President to the lowly Saturday Night Live program, which featured several homocentric skits, the worse of all, a faux musical, where pant dropping Will Ferrel and others sang about giving themselves sexual gratification (I can't bear to say how). This was after the beginning of the show when Ferrell kissed and sang to his mother who was in the audience. Proud mother, not. Just a special treat for Mothers Day in Ferrell's mind.

Vice President Joe Biden led off the week with an announcement that, it does not bother him if gay couples "marry." Then, President Obama, prior to a 15 million dollar fundraiser with gay Hollywood libs at George Clooney's house, confessed that his take on confirming gay marriage has been evolving (ie., He better do it, or gay Hollywood will cut him off). The President also confessed that he consulted with his daughters Sasha and Malia before forming his, maybe, final opinion to endorse sodomite marriage, which he as been opposed to for some time. The Prez's daughters attend a very liberal and expensive Quaker Sidwell Friends School, which is so opened minded, that its brains and morality fell out long ago.

During this past week, it was noticed by several astute talk radio hosts, including Howie Chizek of Akron's WNIR.com, that across the country, schools were hosting a "Cross-Dressing" day, where young boys could wear girls bras and panties, as part of Homecoming or Spirit Week. I don't remember such celebrations back in the day.

I tuned in to American Idol, just for a sec, to see that one of the greatest singers I have ever heard, Joshua Ledet, was possibly gay. I hope not. But then I even gave Johnny Weir the benefit of the doubt. Oops.

Also, very disappointing, was Greg Gutfeld and Fox's latenight Redeye, which was not only putting down Santorum and Romney for their lack of fondness for gay marriage, but was above and beyond the norm in promoting the gay agenda. Redeye, fortunately on in the wee hours of the night, is good for unusual stories, but it has gotten worse in exalting everything gay. These comedians are no longer cutting edge conservatives,when they constantly bend over frontwards to please the gay community. Gutfeld's jokes about "locking up boys in the basement," and his references to "hanging out in men's bathrooms and bathhouses, " if only kidding, makes him look just like another disgusting Hollywood lib.His beautiful wife is a stylist, so maybe he has no choice in the matter.

Hillary Rosen, the lesbian who slammed Ann Romney for, "Not knowing what its like to work," was also celebrating this historic week, where President Obama pulled off an even more daring stunt than his taking out Osama Bin Laden - he evolved into a gay marriage promoter. Evidently, he was sleeping through Rev. Wright's sermon on gay marriage.

On the brighter side, the Methodist Church finally legislated that gay marriage and gay ordination to the ministry was "not compatible with Methodist doctrine." That leaves the United Church of Christ and the Episcopal Church as the leading havens for unrepentant homosexuals. And, I don't really think the mother, and model, on the front page of Time Magazine being suckled by her three year old son was a plus for heterosexuality. Thank God, they did not show a picture of her servicing her five year old son, who was mercifully not included on Time's soft porn cover. Another bit of good news is that Glee has lost its luster - after repetitiously featuring an overabundance of gay lust. These libs are so bigoted and theophobic against godly people, as well as the Word of God.

And, there is the good news that North Carolina voted in a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman. And, tens of thousands of North Carolinians are petitioning the state government to cancel the 2012 Presidential Democratic National Convention. Have fun there, President Obama, when you visit (or not) Charlotte in September. Maybe the week was better than I thought.

Cher "Can't Breathe Same Air As Racist,Homophobe Romney" Homophobia May Have Saved Chaztity

Cher Tweets "@cher
"If ROMNEY gets elected I don't know if i can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters"

And again,
@cher "TOO HARSH ? Thats me Holding BACK! They care nothing about the POOR The OLD The SICK The HUNGRY CHILDREN & People striving 4 a Better LIFE !"

"Tell The Truth (lyric of new song) Supreme Court GONE,Women & Children Left Behind! GOD HELP US !"

What the heck happened to Cher? Dumped Sonny. Too many drugs with Gregg Allman? Hired a lesbian sitter for Chastity. Maybe, a little homophobia would have saved Chastity from becoming Chaz.

It was not that long ago that I would regularly

watch the Sonny and Cher TV show, featuring their cute little towheaded

daughter, Chastity, the three of them posing like a holy family. It was

hard to imagine little Chastity becoming "Chaz" after discovering her born

lesbianism. But, wait a minute, if she was born a lesbian, why would she undergo

semi gender-change surgery? (The semi surgery only included an upper

half alteration - or breast reduction). Even the very progressive David

Letterman was confused
and confounded by his awkward sounding


There are so many paradoxes surrounding the

Chaz(tity) Bono story that it should leave younger, curious, and bicurious kids

even more perplexed about what the good Lord has invented. Yes, the Episcopal

Church has pronounced gayness as a gift from God,which brings to mind, " Whoever

causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better

for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, ..."

Long before cute little Chastity became

beefy Chaz, there was a well published story that when Chastity was eleven

years old, Cher left her with a known lesbian friend to baby-sit. Years later,

Chastity complained that she was raped by this friend, "Joan." According

to the story, Cher told Chastity that encounter would be, "A good life

experience for you."

The fairy tail story (pun intended) of Chastity

ended as she turned five years old when mommy dearest dumped her dad, Sonny, who

went on to lead a more regular life (compared to Cher), and served as a

Republican Congressman for several years until his untimely death on a ski slope

in 1998.

Still, I feel sort of sorry about Chaz(tity) even

though she is officially not a he, because the lower operation is "way too

risky," at this time - and Chastity was born a female. Chaz's morphed manhood

sort of resembles the below picture, but he she - looks more feminine, for a

sheman. Even still, I feel sort of sorry for Chaz(tity) and how confused heshe

has become, even though heshe claims that "the testosterone treatments have made

me randier, and harder to live with." Yeah, extreme male doses of testosterone in your

female body, just might do that.

It even becomes more complicated by the fact that

Chaz's lovely significant other is a lesbian, or maybe bisexual, or whatever the

soup of the day is. Whatever, California will probably soon

introduce a course for Kindergartners which will explain the advantages

and wholesomeness of this fairy tale story (pun intended): A beautiful

young, very feminine girl is raped by an lesbian adult, so she decides to become

a lesbian, only to later decide to become a man engaged to a woman who desires

only other women.

I am not sure that, clinically, we must refer to

semi transgenders (she did not go all the way) as the gender they prefer as

opposed to the way God made them, but contrary to what Lady Gaga has been

preaching, They were not "Born This Way."

The Eleven Most Succesful Military Commanders In History - Including President Barack Obama

When it was announced that President Obama had secretly flown off to Afghanistan to address the troops and tout his marvelous defeat of Osama Bin Laden one year ago, I began to reflect on other historic , victorious military commanders and their stalwart drive to fight wars with their own personal blood and treasure, as well their fellow countrymen's.

As an American, I have special regard for those great United States military fighters, who for God and country, laid their lives down - such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, Dwight Eisenhower, Patton, MacArthur and countless other American Presidents and military leaders, too many to mention.

There are many lists of great military conquerors in history, but here are a few names that should make it to the Hall Of Fame.*

Number 11 - Attila The Hun - Attila the Hun was the leader of the Hunnic Empire which stretched from Central Asia to modern Germany

Number 10 -George S. Patton - In WWII, he gladly used the Germans’ blitzkrieg against them, using the maneuverability of American armored units to out maneuver German lines and gaining large amounts of ground over short periods of time.

Number 9 - William The Conqueror - William the Conqueror led the Norman invasion of England which was the last time that England was successfully conquered by a foreign power. His army defeated the English army at the battle of Hastings preceding his march to London.

Number 8 - Ghengis Khan - Ghengis Khan was the founder of the Mongol Empire; the largest contiguous empire in history. The Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of central Asia.

Number 7 - Julius Caesar - The famed consul of Rome was perhaps the ablest of the late Republic’s military leaders, vying with his co-consul, Pompey for glory in subjugating territory to Rome’s expansionist will. His campaign against the Gauls is still required reading in many military academies, and his defeat of Pompey nearly granted him the kingship of firmly republican Rome.

Number 6 - Hannibal Barca - Hannibal invaded the mighty Roman Empire through the Alps. He defeated the Romans in a series of battles at Trebia, Trasimene and Cannae. Never personally losing on the battlefield to the Romans.

Number 5 - Robert E. Lee - Lee, perhaps the most successful commander in history against numerically and materially superior forces, was the gentle genius in charge of the Army of Northern Virginia and most Confederate forces during the Civil War.

Number 4 - Napoleon Bonaparte - Napoleon was a General during the French Revolution. He would eventually take absolute control of the French Republic as Emperor of the French. He became King of Italy, Mediator of the Swiss Confederation and Protector of the Confederation of the Rhine.

Number 3 - Alexander The Great - Alexander the Great conquered much of the known world by the age of 30. He crushed the once mighty Persian Empire, defeated the much larger army of Darius III at the battle of Issus, and influenced the spread of Hellenistic culture throughout his empire. Alexander mastered the use of the phalanx formation in his armies.

Number 2 -George Washington - Washington was the pivotal, and probably most successful, leader of the American revolutionary forces vying for independence from the British Empire. The stamina and travails of George Washington, fighting for this country's liberty, would place him in the top spot, if it were not for that gladiator of gladiators - President Barack Obama.

Number 1 Most Successful Military Commander In History - Barack Hussein Obama, who gave the order, and personally warranted, after much soul searching and duress, despite his Vice President's objections, the famous American Naval Seal Team Six to assassinate Osama Bin Laden. [Mitt Romney would not have been so bold, according to White House sources and this gripping 17 minute video , narrated by former President BJ Clinton, who extols Barack Obama for his bravado and military daring-do.]

*Most of the descriptions of famous military leaders above were lifted from Listverse.com and Toptenz.net
** There can be much conjecture as to who were the greatest,and what order, but see a complete list at the above cited websites.
