Parasites, Fucktwits & Today’s Lesson in Irony (Working Title)

This little Propaganda Meme touted notably by Republicans (and CHRISTIANS no less!) Annette Bosworth (South Dakota) and Matt Gaetz (Florida) has been making its rounds on the internet lately and this is why it is a FISM (Fucking Ignorant Stupid Meme). Here it is – try reading it without grimacing:

TODAY’S LESSONS IN IRONY The Food Stamp Program is administered by the U.S. department of agriculture. They proudly report that they distribute free meals and food stamps to over 46 million people on an annual basis. Meanwhile, The National Park Service, run by the Department of the Interior asks us, “PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS” Their stated reason for this policy being that: “The Animals will grow dependent on the handouts and then they will never learn to take care of themselves.” THIS CONCLUDES TODAY’S LESSON – ANY QUESTIONS?

There are so many things wrong with this Meme, I don’t even know where to begin. But I’ll begin here: Let’s think about this statement Logically, Rationally & Intelligently.

First of all, though it might be debatable that our species is the most intelligent species on the planet, the comparison being made here is between our species and the Animal Kingdom. From the start this is demeaning and should already being raising an eye-brow or two.

Let’s first discuss the animals. Animals instinctively know how to forage for food. If food is becoming scarce in these parks there is human intervention, so the animals are going to be OK. The animals (and the rest of Nature in the Park) are protected. That’s the whole point of a National Fucking Park. Thus the Animals may not be getting handouts from Cheery Park Goers, but they are being taken care of.

Another reason why they don’t want people to feed the animals is because people are fucking stupid and will feed the animals stupid shit that they would not normally eat in the wild… they left that one out in this meme too.

In the wild, animals have to survive and will do anything to do so. Humans are no different. We will also do what we can to survive (and the government and the corporations that control it, make it more and more difficult to do so). Now while I agree that there are humans that abuse Government Assistance – most of these humans getting this assistance DO need it and it’s not because they are lazy… What they don’t tell you is that about three-quarters you know, 75 F#$%^ING percent of all food stamp households include a child, an elderly person, or a disabled person, and those households receive 83% of all SNAP benefits (this is according to a nonprofit group called Feeding America… look it up).

The US Government (and there is no real distinction between Right and Left), is trying to blame the woes and ills of society on what they refer to as parasites milking the system. When in fact, the government has created these woes and ills. but… (and here’s where we have to be rational): We are taught in school that if we do well, if we do everything they say, we can get out and get a good job. That may have been true at one point in our history, but it ain’t no more… I know people that graduated from University were looking for jobs and ended up having to get assistance – and that’s with a degree – until they found something. I know many more who left the US (the Land of Milk & Honey and Streets Paved with Gold, my ass) and go to other countries where quality of life is better.

HERE IS THE REAL IRONY: Didn’t the American government hand over BILLIONS of dollars to the RICH to bail them out from their own incompetence? Let me answer that. Yes, they did. A lot more than what they give the people that get government assistance (the children, the disabled and the elderly… you know that 75% I mentioned above). So we should not be pissed off at roughly 15% (did the math in my head) of the people (46 million out of 317.8 million) in the US getting some form of welfare, we should be Fucking Outraged that Tax Dollars are going to BAIL OUT FUCKING RICH PEOPLE!

Isn’t the US Government spending TRILLIONS of dollars to support Corporations while they make bullets and bombs and ‘rebuild’ countries that their bullets and bombs have devastated? WHERE OH WHERE ARE THE GOVERNMENT’S PRIORITIES? Are they over there? No? Over here? Under there? 46 million out of 317.8 million. That about 15% of the Population. That’s not a big number as far as tax payer dollars go. And while stats may fluctuate here and there, it’s certainly not THE SAME PEOPLE year after year. There are so many factors not to mention demographics. Where did these very broad stats come from? Has anyone asked themselves what state has the most percentage of those needing government assistance and why?

Detroit’s economy for example, once thriving, is in dire-straits because the automobile industry is moving their factories off shore i.e. out of the US. Do you think that those hard working laborers working in the auto industry are enjoying being on government assistance? Let’s use our Fucking Heads here, shall we Annette & Matt? Is it the fault of the good people from Detroit who worked in the auto-industry that they have no money to buy stuff they need to ‘survive’? Or is it the fault of the Corporations who moved their businesses to other countries for the cheaper labor; non-existent laws to protect the workers AKA Modern Day Slaves; and the lax rules on pollution and other bits?

Who are the real bad guys here?

Even if one wants to start their own business, the US government – and the Corporations that control it – do not favor small businesses. The red tape, the taxes and ridiculous laws for starting up a business in the US make it very difficult to succeed unless you do it under the table… WHICH I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO DO. The Public Education System (PES) does not get the Youth in the US of A ready for the real world, instead it gives them Test after Test (not real learning) to make sure they are good little robots. In other words programming, in other words Indoctrination, in other words the schools in the US are producing a bunch dummies that know how to obey, but hardly know how to think for themselves. Then they ‘graduate’ and get a ‘job’ –  if they’re lucky – which are often menial tasks that require just enough brain power needed to get the job done. Perhaps they went to a vocational school. Perhaps they went on to University… but what’s left for them when they are ready to hit the job market?

Perhaps the PES should teach children about health, about growing their own food and making their own clothes and most importantly Critical & Creative Thinking and THINKING FOR THEMSELVES (instead of being told what to think). But ALAS! these Independent Creative Critical Thinkers would not need the government so much, they would not need to buy all the shit they do as Consumers or worst of all, they would be questioning the government’s actions as an intelligent, rational, Citizens.

But they (The Government and The Corporations that control the government) don’t want this.

They want Ignorant Dumb-Asses that do what they’re told and are easy to control (Classic Sun Zi The Art of War – keep the populace Ignorant!).

They want We The People to CONSUME and DEPEND ON THEM.

The problem is not the people on welfare, that’s only a small percentage of the budget. The Problem is the system and the Masterful Fucktards running it.

Don’t fall for the Propaganda…  don’t believe the Hype.

Question Authority.

GUN CONTROL/LAWS/2ND AMENDMENT Chat. Your thoughts?

GUN Control/Laws/2nd Amendment Chat reposted Add your Thoughts

Terry I’d like to know what people think regarding the 2nd constitutional amendment on the right to bear arms in the USA. Absolutely for or against, somewhere in between, and WHY. C’mon, what else is there to do on those 3 minutes of boredom when you check in, hoping for something to

Dan i would trade my gun for some betal nuts ANY day!

    •  

Wendy Is that the one about housing soldiers in a civilians home w/o their consent?? Or cruel and unusual punishment, because I’m all for that one. 😉

    •  

Terry Sommers no. citizens’ right to own and use weapons

    •  

Wendi Gregory Simmons I KNOW! It was a joke!!!

    •  

Terry Sommers i wasn’t sure. You are from oklahoma, ya know

    •  

Wendi Gregory Simmons But I’m the smartest damn okie ever!

    •  

Terry Sommers ahem*** “I’d like to know what people think regarding the 2nd constitutional amendment on the right to bear arms in the USA. Absolutely for or against, somewhere in between, and WHY. C’mon, what else is there to do on those 3 minutes of boredom when you check in, hoping for something to chew on?”

    •  

Dennis Dz I’m for it.

    •  

Dennis Dz Why? Because I think in a healthy society, guns are only useful tools. There are plenty of shootings b/c our society is sick. Taking away guns won’t change that at all.

    •  

Ada Clementy thats some bullpucky there Dennis Dz, taking away guns will stop shootings. Stop watching Faux News

    •  

Terry Sommers how do you qualify ‘bullpucky’?

    •  

Dennis Dz Sure, taking away guns might stop the gun violence, but it wouldn’t address the fundamental causes of gun violence.

Please stay away from the easy assumptions. You don’t know me at all.

    •  

Melanie Dawn Coldewey I think I’ve always felt this way. But even more so since having a child. I feel one should have the right to protect self, family and property. Guns are on this earth, like it or not, and in lieu of striking them all from this place I’d like to at least know I have a somewhat equal defense to malicious intentions.

    •  

Melanie Dawn Coldewey Though I also think people should have some sort of general psychological examination before legally obtaining any!

    •  

Terry Sommers and lately, the DHS has ordered about a BILLION rounds of hollowpoint ammunition. Hollowpoints are illegal for use in warfare according to the geneva convention, but apparently Homeland Security thinks it needs to be able to tear apart people from the inside.

    •  

Peter McAinsh I put mercury in my hollow point rounds and sealed it with beeswax. Not just acute lead poisoning but heavy metal too for those home invaders. When the bullet hits it opens like a cluster bomb. Fabntastic!

    •  

Terry Sommers unless you become the more likely statistic, which is that people are more likely to accidentally shoot themselves than shoot an actual person in self-defense.

Ethan Kegley

The right to bear “arms” and protect one’s body and property from unlawful confiscation, harm and or death.

Until the constitution changes, then people do have the right to purchase, possess and use (lawfullly) those aforementioned arms.

What I do think is silly is for one person to own more than one gun. While I could see the argument for a rifle being different then a handgun, therefor one of each should be owned. This would be one for hunting, one for self defense. I don’t think people should be able to have more than one hand gun… possibly not more than one hand gun per house…

It sounds like I am arguing to uphold the second amendment. In fact, I think guns are, while fun, quite nasty things. It is true, society is sick, but do we need to make it easier for people to kill other people?

I think a comedian said it quite well. Yes, if that fellow had not had a gun he probably would have still tried to carry out an attack with some other weapons…. but you just cant kill as many people with a crossbow, swords, etc. than you can with a semi-automatic rifle or machine gun for that matter.

I do think that licensing should be much more strict, i think people should have to renew their license every year with a class and a demonstration of safety knowledge.

A gun is a tool of death, it can be used for little else.

    •  

Terry Sommers Timothy Mcveigh supposedly killed over 160 humans with a u-haul truck, diesel fuel, and agricultural fertilizer. That’s why I don’t have any fertilizer in my home – i let my snails turn my table scraps into nutrients for my planter beds.

    •  

Ethan Kegley Yeah, bombs are another matter, and poison gas could be another, or broken government policy that leads to starvation and disease. But I think we were talking about the second amendment to the constitution of the USA

    •  

Terry Sommers I’m getting ahead of myself.

    •  

Terry Sommers tho i was commenting on your comment about finding another way to kill people without guns

    •  

Ethan Kegley true, and I agree with you. There are numerous ways to dispatch a soul from its mortal coil. Sorry, I was just taking your lead in reminding us what we are discussing.

    •  

Ethan Kegley Let’s look at it from this perspective. Whole industries exist because of the second amendment… are there other amendments to the constitution that have created whole industries built up around the continuation of that “right” though I would call it a responsibility (when it comes to treating the gun carefully to the nth degree)

Gun Laws are awesome… the government takes the guns away….

No guns!

Except for the Criminals…

I can see it now:

GUNS LAWS ENACTED. THIS IS AN AMNESTY. CITIZENS TURN IN YOUR GUNS.

Mafia Boss: Oh No! I have to turn my gun in! The Government says so!

Street Thug: This is Terrible! We’re not allowed to have guns, we have to hand them over to the authorities! I’ll get right on that!

Gang Member: Shit Man, I just bought this Mofo Glock from Billy BagPipes yesterday… government says I need to turn this shit in because of some amnesty thing. I’m on it!

Serial Killer: Looks like I’m going to have to change how I kill. I must turn my gun in. Maybe I can just bludgeon them to death with the leg broken off a piano bench now.

Crooked Evil Cop: I get to keep mine!

Law Abiding Gun Owning Citizen: Well I guess our streets will be safer now from the Mafia, Street Thugs, Gang Members and Serial Killers, because we ALL have to turn our guns in.

God Bless Amerika!

(Lucky there was no gun control in 1776, eh, would have been tough kicking England’s ass with Bows/Arrows, sticks and stones)

Gun Laws only affect those that can legally own guns.

Here are some Quotes and Historical facts on Governments that control guns for y’all:

* “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to posses arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.” -Adolph Hitler 1938

*The 1938 Nazi law barred Jews from businesses involving firearms. On November 10. 1938 — one day after the Nazi party terror squads (the SS) savaged thousands of Jews, synagogues and Jewish businesses throughout Germany — new regulations under the Weapons Law specifically barred Jews from owning any weapons, even clubs or knives.

*After the Christian Tutsis had been disarmed by governmental decree in the early 1990s, Hutu-led military forces began to systematically massacre the defenseless Christians.

“One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.”
— Constitutional scholar Joseph Story, 1840

Terry Sommers anyone willing to spar with Paul?

US Constitution–Bill of Rights–The First Ten Amendments

www.ratical.org

The following is a transcription of the first 10 amendments to the United States

Constitution. Called the “Bill of Rights”, these amendments were ratified on December 15, 1791. Each amendment’s title is linked to a set of detailed annotations presented on the Findlaw website.

    •  

Boston Paul Noah Webster, 1787:

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”

Ethan Kegley

according to wiki:

There were 52,447 deliberate and 23,237 accidental non-fatal gunshot injuries in the United States during 2000.[4] The majority of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides,[5] with 17,352 (55.6%) of the tota

l 31,224 firearm-related deaths in 2007 due to suicide, while 12,632 (40.5%) were homicide deaths.[6] In 2009, according to the UNODC, 60% of all homicides in the United States were perpetrated using a firearm.[7]

30 percent non fatal injuries are accidental and more than 50 percent of gunshot deaths are suicide

I agree with paul, we cant just say we are going to take the guns away and expect violence to go down… but it does seem that the Gun is the weapon of choice in most things death related.

    •  

Terry Sommers convenient packaging, la

    •  

Ethan Kegley and isnt that what the gun really is, but a more convenient way to kill something?

    •  

Terry Sommers c’mon!!! someone take on Paul’s arguments!!! Aren’t there any verbose gun banners out there?

    •  

Ethan Kegley I thought I kind of did a little

    •  

Terry Sommers I’m saving my comments for last, but so far Paul’s statement seems the most convincing. What ever happened to death star Adam?

    •  

Ethan Kegley What about Japan as an example, low levels of gun violence

    •  

Terry Sommers and low levels of guns, but by our standards, a high level of kiddie porn

    •  

Terry Sommers i don’t wanna compare the usa with japan, two totally different cultures

Dennis Dz: Sure, taking away guns might stop the gun violence, but it wouldn’t address the fundamental causes of gun violence.

I wish I could highlight the last 10 words of this sentence.

Fundamental Causes.


Why are schools in many US cities more violent than most other so called ‘First World’ countries?

What are the fundamental causes of any kind of violence in the first place?

Prescription Drugs for children who are ‘hyper-active’ …

… shite diets (parents giving junk food to kids before the age of 5 – IMO child abuse).

Child having a bad day, as we all do, and parents/teachers sending the kid to a shrink to ‘work it all out’…. perhaps doing more harm than good… (?)…. complex much?

The Media glorifying guns, a life of crime?

The Media Branding the Youth – where kids beat up or even kill for not just money, but slave labor made Nike shoes.

What is it about American ‘culture’ that breeds violence especially violence with guns?

Dennis DZ hit the nail on the head… Fundamental Causes.

The problem is not going to be solved with gun laws per se. The problem with violence in the US has been festering since World War II (ish) ….or perhaps the Industrial Revolution? Maybe since 1776?

Why is it that there are lower crime/violent rates than the US around the world?

Other countries, like those in the UK, don’t have many guns, other countries like Switzerland, males over 20 years old all keep a gun. In Switzerland then, there is a gun for every household…

Read about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Switzerland

Picked this up on-line:

The Swiss:

“Whatever the effect of Swiss guns abroad, they are not even a trivial crime problem domestically. Despite all the guns, the murder rate is a small fraction of the American rate, and is less than the rate in Canada or England, which strictly control guns, or in Japan, which virtually prohibits them. The gun crime rate is so low that statistics are not even kept.

The suicide rate, though, is almost double the American rate. Guns are used in about one-fifth of all Swiss suicides compared to three-fifths of American and one-third of Canadian suicides.

It is not Switzerland’s cultural makeup, or its gun policies per se, that explain that low crime rate. Rather, it is the emphasis on community duty, of which gun ownership is the most important part, that best explains low crime rate.”

Your thoughts?

Gun politics in Switzerland – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

en.wikipedia.org

Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. Switzerland does not have a standing army, instead opting for a peoples Militia to defend their country. The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training…

Boston PaulTaking my gun away because I might shoot someone is like cutting my tongue out because I might yell `Fire!’ in a crowded theater.”
— Peter Venetoklis

    •  

Boston Paul Some other interesting Tidbits:

If strict gun control could actually disarm that criminal element in America, there might be an argument for gun control. But as Josh Sugarmann, former communications director for the National Coalition to Ban Handguns (NCBH), wrote in The Washington Monthly: “handgun controls do little to stop criminals from obtaining handguns.”

Sugarmann and NCBH favour gun control not to disarm criminals, but because they believe that non-criminal Americans cannot be trusted with handguns. The coalition’s political affairs director, Eric Ellman, has said that “the majority of gun owners are not responsible.” Yet a look at the facts shows that more than 99% of American citizens who are not professional felons are just as suited for gun ownership as any Swiss militiaman.

Ordinary American citizens use guns competently. Every 48 seconds, someone uses a handgun to defend himself against a crime (according to Florida State University’s Gary Kleck, using data collected by liberal pollster Peter Hart in a poll paid for by the anti-gun lobby).

Regular American citizens do not shoot each other in moments of passion; the vast majority of such shootings are perpetrated by thugs with a record of violence and substance abuse.

And contrary to the claims of the anti-gun lobby, Americans are not so careless that they cannot be trusted with potentially dangerous objects like guns. Gun accidents account for less than 2% of the nation’s 92,000 accidental deaths annually.

***Suicides have little to do with gun availability. Japan has no guns, while Switzerland is deluged with every gun in the book, and both nations have the same suicide rate.

Of course the more that U.S. governments can do to make gun use in America even more responsible, the better. Switzerland shows how successful governments can be in promoting responsible gun use.

Elementary schools in America should have gun safety classes which teach children never to touch a gun unless a parent is present, and they should be taught to tell an adult if they see an unattended gun. The NRA actively promotes this idea, and the National Association of Chiefs of Police endorses it. But Handgun Control opposes this reasonable, sensible safety measure. Has HCI gone off the deep end?

High schools and colleges wishing to offer target shooting as a sport should be allowed to do so. Unlike football or swimming, scholastic target shooting has never resulted in a fatality. The anti-gun groups oppose the sensible step of allowing the schools to offer students the safest sport ever invented. Have they gone off the deep end’? Finally, local governments should enact reasonable zoning laws, which allow the construction of indoor shooting ranges (properly ventilated and sound insulated) in urban areas. In some cases, governments should subsidise the building of ranges. At target ranges, Americans can take lessons in gun responsibility, and practice safe gun handling skills. As you might expect, the anti-gunners oppose this simple safety measure too. They’ve gone off the deep end.

What have we learned from Switzerland?’ Guns in themselves are not a cause of gun crime; if they were, everyone in Switzerland would long ago have been shot in a domestic quarrel.

Cultural conditions, not gun laws, are the most important factors in a nation’s crime rate. Young adults in Washington, D.C., are subject to strict gun control, but no social control, and they commit a staggering amount of armed crime. Young adults in Zurich are subject to minimal gun control, but strict social control, and they commit almost no crime.

What America can learn from Switzerland is that the best way to reduce gun misuse is to promote responsible gun ownership. While America cannot adopt the Swiss model, America can foster responsible gun ownership along more individualistic, American lines. Firearms safety classes in elementary schools, optional marksmanship classes in high schools and colleges, and the widespread availability of adult safety training at licensed shooting ranges are some of the ways that America can make its tradition of responsible gun use even stronger.

End Chat (for now!)

Boston Paul Sentiments

This is  a collection of  boston paul quotes found all over the Internet. There will be more added as time goes on and we dig them up.

If you find any quotes by Boston Paul anywhere on the Internet that are not listed here, please post them in the Comments and we will add them later!

Thank you & Happy Reading.

On Governments/Nations/Flags/The Military & War:

1. Old Tom Jefferson was a Closet Anarchist!

2. Amerika is not my enemy. The forces that control it are.

3. Following a Government blindly is the epitome of Ignorance and the American ‘Fathers’ are rolling in their graves.  Thomas Jefferson is clawing his way out to Bitch Slap the Ignorant Populace.

4. Some defend their country on social networking sites; others actually go to another country to defend their country, then murder its citizens.

5. Amerika is not made up of Brave Revolutionaries forging a Life & fighting Tyranny anymore. Amerika has degenerated into a Populace of Whining Ignorant Pussies that know how to Follow, Obey and Not ask Questions while their Government is Sodomizing them.

6.  I’m just knocking Amerika off its pedestal, its People & Culture are no better or worse than any other country.

7. People follow blindly. They regurgitate Nationalistic Rhetoric and think it is their own thoughts their own ideas…

8. The Box many live in is Big… but it is still a Box.

9. We should always question a Government and regard it with Skepticism.

10. I am anti-flag.   I am a Peaceful Anarchist.

11. I am first and foremost an Earthling. Mammalian Piss in the form of a piece of cloth does not represent who I am.

12. People dying and killing for colors. Love the red white & blue! Lynch the black man! Bomb the yellow Man. Don’t let Old Glory touch the ground!

           This is Ludicrous at best.

13. Amerika is not a country , it is a Corporation. You do not live in a Zip Code anymore, you live in a Tax Code.

14. Killing an Enemy for the State is still murder…and what a cop-out, BS, Brainwashed Statement when a soldier says, “I was just following orders.”

15. What are the ‘good’ American – and often Christian – soldiers doing in Iraq and Afghanistan?  Simple. They are Murdering its Citizens.

16. Take Pride in being an American? Usually we take pride in something we have done, something that makes a difference. People who take pride in being from Syria, or Canada, or Brazil, the US or someplace in Africa are prideful of what?  That they just happened to be born on a patch of Earth, and someone gave that patch a name. And that Patch was probably taken from someone else anyway… can’t get my head around that one.
17. Dissent and speaking up about these things is what used to make the US great… now one is suspect for Voicing Dissent and exercising Freedom of Speech.
18. ‘We The People’ I love it! We! The People!   No flags there. No mention of skin color.   Immigrants are not excluded.

19. We The People. Damn Straight! No us or them just ‘We’.  No Patriotic Jargon (which many confuse with Nationalistic Rhetoric), just We… let’s keep it like that, WE’re on the right Path.

20. Making a demeaning comment (as politicians often do to their opponents to display superiority and make their opponents look silly no matter how right their opponent may be) is not unlike our Mammalian Cousins tossing feces at each other…

21. It’s a sad day for Democracy when people are voting not for someone but against someone else.

22.  Governments do not want a free thinking People. Revolutions start when People are allowed to think.

On Vegetarianism:

1. I am not a Vegetarian, I just don’t eat Animals.

2. I have a hard time eating anything that could walk around and look at me before it was Murdered.
On Topics of Society, Peace & Love, Health & Other Topics:

1. They don’t allow Facebook in the loony bin.  Wait. Facebook IS the loony bin!

2. Another’s Post to BP  “At my kid’s school they gave them a questionnaire about their feelings.” 

BP: This is called profiling.  Something they do in these Indoctrination Centers they call Public Education.

3. Information is controlled… for Information is Knowledge, and it’s been said that Knowledge is Power.

4.  They say there is a fine line between Love & Hate. Often people scratch their heads, for how can there be a fine line between what seems to be opposite extremes?  That fine line is Passion.

5. Passion is Energy. And Pure Energy does not know if it negative or positive, bad or good, love or hate. Passion is directed through a medium (like electricity is through a conductor).  We are that Medium.

6. At the risk of sounding pretentious, those of us that have various insights of the world are often scorned by those who do not.

7. Another’s Post to BP: ” Tell me what happened to you. There is some majorly intense, repressed anger lurking under all the peace & LUV stuff.”

BP: All this Peace and Love stuff?   You make it almost seem like the Latest Fad!  When one has been in the Belly of the Beast and has clawed his way out; when one is sick of looking at all the war, hate, separation of people because of colors of skin & colors of flags; when one has seen what happens behind the scenes in government and religion; when one is sick of having Freedom being taken away while others accept it because they blindingly trust their government; when one wants to share what they have learned through experiences, trials, tribulations and is scorned, dubbed weird or eccentric; when one has seen government sponsored murder…  Peace & Love, Dear Friend, take on a whole new Meaning.

Don’t confuse my well directed, focused, Majorly Intense Passion in these matters for anything else.

8. Being Peaceful and Loving and wanting that in the world, does not mean I am a big fucking pussy and will let people walk all over me, Ol’ Chum.

9. Sleep is precious oil for my soul and sanity…

10. If someone is not feeling the love, often they should be taking a look inward and try to figure out why they feel this way… not blame it on someone else.

11. On the Bible: I speak Chinese and English (and dabble in 3 or 4 other languages) things do get lost in translation… or cannot be translated properly at all…how can we know Truth when we can’t understand the Language of Truth?

12. Money has turned People into Slaves. This is Genius. We hear, “Work Hard and you will be Rich someday…”  This, for 99% of the People, will never happen. But you will be making others rich, eh?  I think I’ll just enjoy my Life.

13. The Aramaic word for Virgin and Young Woman can be the same… and scholars believe that the Virgin birth did not happen. That a Young Woman gave birth to Jesus, not a virgin.

14. I’m exactly a 180 degrees on the left side of the Balance. I am no more Sad & Pathetic than those that keep professing Jesus is Lord.

15. Response to Christian website that states humans cannot be good without God:

I’m Good. People around me are Good.  We don’t have gods or your God in our Lives. We are still Good.   We don’t live with the Guilt many Christians, Jews and Muslims live with because they are not able to live up to the impossible Morality pushed on them by a dogmatic religion.
We are Free. Love for Humanity is our Moral Code.
We believe in Humanity and the Good Mother Earth from whence we came and to where we will return.
The Bible is so filled with contradictions how can anyone decipher it and come out with some kind of Morality?
How can anyone honestly believe in a Mysterious Omniscient Sky Wizard that rules over all?

We stopped believing in Fairies, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny (all stolen from the Pagans by the way) when we were children, one would think adults would stop believing in the Sky Wizard as well.        Peace and Love

16. It’s been said Home is where the Heart is… and Home is where I hang my Hat…  Home is….

17. It took me years to realize that when we hold on to anger, the one we are angry at wins.  We are using synapses -and other bits in our brain- energy, time – and all that is dedicated to focusing our anger on an individual, situation etc.  Letting go’ takes on a whole new meaning when we realize this.  Often we are angry because of what is going on inside us, and not the thing we are angry at.  What a joyous feeling to address a problem that gets our emotions going, understand why we are feelings the feelings we feel, addressing it, then letting it go and moving on to other things in our lives. And as a last resort for those who can’t let it go, remember this bit of Sage Advice:  The Best Revenge is Living Well.

18. A thriving economy throughout the ages has always needed slaves.

19. I like to shatter paradigms.  It is what I do…  If no one knocks me off a pedestal, I jump.

20. .don’t think of things as being good or evil — they just are.   Our experience of them makes them positive or negative for us.

21. On Public Education:  The problem is not so much the teachers as it is the system. The best teachers in the world are stuck in a rut (or better – a rock and a hard place) because of what they want to do and what they must do.

22. Public Education is designed to produce workers. People that obey.

23. Children should be outside all day playing and learning. Not stuck inside a classroom all day into the late afternoon. Then going home and getting their homework done before bed.

          This is not natural…. not the way our species has developed over the past few hundred thousand years.

24. Public Education – in its present form, in most of the world –  is Evil.

25. On Religion and Politics:  I learned that discussing Politics and Religion can be touchy topics. People do not like their boat rocked. But without the boat being rocked, there would be no progress.

26. Fuck the FEDERAL RESERVE.

27. The more I know, the more I realize I don’t know.  Doesn’t stop me from trying to know though…   …beats the sh*t out of ignorance.

28. We should always question what we believe, to not do so is the epitome of idiocy.

On Our Species:

1. Human Nature? This is a word that is tossed around the lexicon like dice in a cup. We are still trying to figure out what Human Nature is.  Humans do stupid things, not because it is human nature, but because we are still thinking like mere mammals.

2. I am first and foremost an Earthling. Mammalian Piss in the form of a piece of cloth does not represent who I am.

3. Response to a pro-American post – I’m proud and thrilled to be an Earthling.  Thanks for the Men and Women who gave their lives for Amerika? Men and Women from all over the world have given their Lives for one country or another at any given time. Why does one love their country?  If we all loved the Earth instead of a specific place on it, what a joyous place it would be to live.

4. We are in control of our own lives. We make our decisions and must live with them and deal with the subsequent aftermath.

5. Murder: Because of ‘A’ – ‘B’ dies.

We’ll call them Adam & Bruce.

Adam kills Bruce. What we must look for is intent. Why did Adam kill Bruce?

Here are the possibilities:

A. It was an accident.
B. Bruce is killed through mistaken identity
C. Someone told Adam to kill Bruce.
D. Adam was protecting someone else from Bruce.
E. Adam didn’t like Bruce.
F. Adam thought he was protecting his country & fighting for his Freedom and Bruce was the Enemy.

G. Bruce took Adam’s sandwich.

6. A starving child steals something to eat. Is this right or wrong?

7. If I can’t stop myself… no one can.

8. The Written Word is Solace, A Sword, A Universe in a World.

9. Our Species has been trying to figure out what Human Nature is since we swung down from the trees and realized we were Human.

10. “Lust is Oblivious”

11. It says in the Bible, Thou shalt not Kill.   Yet Christians have been killing in the name of God and Jesus for at least 1500 years.

12. I love Lust.   Rules against Lust go against the very essence of Nature.

GENERAL:

 

In Kindergarten, they taught us…

*to share

*not to fight

*to be nice

*to clean up our messes

*to help our friends and family

*to be ‘Good Samaritans’ and

*to work together…

…then some grew up and became Politicians and/or CEOs of major corporations.

*Resources are not shared, they’re often stolen and re-sold;

*fighting is rife in the Middle East

*can’t be nice when your cheating the populace

*messes are made and not cleaned up (oil spills, corporations like Monsanto destroying or ecosystems etc)

*friends and family are often put on the back burner for the sake of a career

*and many Good Samaritans are Good because of tax breaks.

~Perhaps we should take that Kindergarten Mentality and all start working together to make the world a better place…

It seems many of us forgot almost everything we learned in Kindergarten.

What Happened?
