Welcome to My World - JUNE 22, 2016, ENOUGH!
With the obvious death of the newspapers and the rise of TV reality shows which are not real but staged, intended or not, I am now at a point where I cannot contain my self any longer.
I am sick of what I see on TV. Normally I write about things that I find incredulous, that annoy or disturb rules of common sense, values and truth. My byline has always been I write about the things you are not supposed to talk about.
Generally they fell into one of three categories. Politics, Religion, Sex or what I called Sex is so common it had no meaning unless combined with first two. It is now termed The Human Interface which usually contains some combination involved with sex by either someone with Political or Religious influence.
And today another local celebrant gets into trouble. This infuriates me. When we have someone delving in religion and using the flock as targets, especially children, I will go after them. In the last eight years it was the Catholic Church who blew the doors off.
In Largo, I am less than about eight miles from one of the worst coverups of the Priests by the leader in a local Diocese. So be it, they are all gone, with good riddance. And just when you thought it quieted down, the other Christian sects jumped in on it. Something really needing oversight restrictions are Youth pastors. Add music based churches, rock groups, not enough adults around, and a good looking youth pastor.
IT HAPPENED AGAIN
It’s a lousy lead story today but FLORIDA is ranked according to the data I can find in the top ten states in youth pastor arrests in churches. I have written about five in the past few years and it’s disgusting. They get covered up quickly, many do not make it to the news. It’s a hush subject at many of the churches.
June 21, 2016, a 26-year-old youth minister is facing sexual battery charges following his arrest. In court on Monday morning, Judge John Conrad increased Sam Sutter’s bond to $100,000. It was originally set at $75,000. Sutter, 26, was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on Sunday afternoon.
According to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office report, Sutter was involved in a sexual relationship with a teenage girl he met through his job at the Openwater Church located on Race Track Road in Odessa. Investigators say Sutter had sex with the victim at his Tampa residence and on at least two occasions in a bathroom at the church. (A really class act brings new meaning to Holy Water).
Maybe dumping this guy in prison for ten years and the pedophile brand will bring direction to his life and a severe warning to others. And I can hear it now from the choir, all about forgiveness. As a friend put when his daughter was advantaged, "I will forgive him right after the castration”.
מאַלעכ-אַמאָוועס (malekh-amo-ves) THE ANGEL OF DEATH AND ORLANDO
We have seen enough death, the malekh-amoves is the Angel Of Death from the old testament. And wit0
h the horrifics of Orlando fresh in our minds, this is more than the second amendment, this is more than radicalism, this is about a situation totally out of control. I will support the second amendment with everything in my power as long as it is truth. I supported the NRA for many years, but it has changed and is corrupted, I will not support the rhetoric of organizations who are not honest brokers or individuals with no merit other than their greed. I will not support an organization where the leaders do not listen to the constituents.
Orlando.... was another eye opener into the world we really live in today. So was Paris and Belgium, and the people did what people do when it comes to tragedy. Prayer, for the dead, prayer for the survivors and prayer for those living, we pray looking for the good side, hoping the angel will come down or astride a white horse and make things better.
But with the reoccurrence of these attacks here and abroad by convoluted individuals following a false GOD, who are we praying to. Words today are meaningless. It will not stop the next attack. We are at the point of having to do something, you see the Angel of Death, I used the Hebrew spelling and enunciation is malek amo-ves and he doesn’t pay attention to your prayers.
Does it mean don’t pray or think good thoughts, No, prayer and good thoughts are for our salvation to, but not an excuse. The real answer is taking action. We have to do something. This kind of hatred must stop. Lip service doesn’t count. And we are fighting a war on two fronts, the radicalism or the distortion of a religion, not the true beliefs of the more than one something billion believers, these are thugs, dissidents, maniacal losers having no merit in a civilized world.
And here in the states we are facing another blooming war against the NRA and our politicians who are owned lock, stock and barrel by sheer bribery. I cringe when I see our leaders in Congress pandering, instead of taking clear and decisive action. They are cowards, and refuse to take a stand that says this type of hatred and intolerance is unacceptable in a modern society.
We have to know that the actual issue is a combination of the two problems. The radicalized shooter and easy access to military grade weaponry not designed to put food on the table but bodies in coffins. Some are pointing at guns, but that’s not the real issue, it’s the easy sometimes totally useless safety measures that allows them to acquire war weapons.
The real question is the catalyst, what really brings this on. Relatively simple, it is HATRED, and it exists all throughout the world. We love but we also hate. The coin has two sides. There’s a hatred of Muslims, currently and nicely enhanced by a really sick bigoted individual running for the highest office in the land on the GOP ticket, the Presidency.
Then there is the hatred of gays promulgated by parts of Christianity and especially the Muslims. There’s a hatred of Blacks, Latinos, Transgendered, Queers, Bi-Sexuals, and even Birth Control, Agnostics and Atheists, Planned Parenthood serving women’s health because of the access to abortion. We live in a country shared by the good and the haters.
“The LGBTQ community took the brunt of the hatred at Orlando, and paid a severe price. They know all about hatred, they have been in a leadership role for their human rights including the fight against anti-Muslim bigotry”. And one person with the right weapon killed 49 and wounded, many severely with debilitating wounds 53 in all, 102 people minding their own business, enjoying their life style with the comfort of friends, bothering no one, were attacked.
Ask yourself, are you one of the haters? Are your actions and words creating violence. If it bothers you the way others lead their lives by custom or fear, what have you done about it. If it’s their customs and not harmful, learn about them. If they live in fear, find a way to help.
The problem I have is with people who cannot let the other life style live. As long as someone or group has a lifestyle other than yours, no one ifs forcing you to embrace it. Frankly, its none of your concern as long as it doesn’t enter your world uninvited. Believe me the other side might be a little reluctant to want to get to know you. Hatred feeds violence and creates divisions that is tearing this country apart.
Day after day I am affronted with statements or branding of people, their beliefs, and their physical or spiritual makeup, simply put, Its nothing but PREJUDICE and HATRED being used to cement some really stupid brain cells together.
And a big part of the problem, is today’s TV twenty-four seven media repeating the lies, corruption, cheating and scamming, basically or categorically, of the spinning in todays politics. And then with the 24/7 time lines bonding it in the same fashion by repetition.
All topics big enough to make the TV big screen are the things you were told not to talk about. Really? We still do, lets not kid ourselves and possibly the only way to stop talking about these things would be to remove the water cooler, coffee pots, town halls, TV’s, and close all bars.
If you believe that you should not discuss any of these things then this is not the place for you. Thats why God made sand, a place to bury your head. Thats just called denial. And those who do bury their head expose another part of their anatomy for the world to see… not exactly putting your best face forward.
I am a news junkie. I am also a researcher, slightly relentless, antagonistic, stubborn and I get to see this world very clearly and from varied viewpoints. Thats the problem I have… integrity, who is delivering the news, what is the percentage of verifiable truth involved void of personal opinions, and usually with the talking heads, featuring guest paid assassins whose position is just as predictable.
I TARGET POLITICIANS and TV EVANGELISTS
When you are immersed in the political game carrying camera and notepad and get to meet these folks up front, backstage, off the camera, good and bad times, the light changes as we say in photography, and you make adjustments. You also get to see the real person.
And I have to be honest, in the arena of the big lie, getting caught, thieving, cheating, lying and corruption, the GOP is winning hands down. The birthers, deathers, obstructionists, prejuidistos, gerrymanderers, tea potters, statements about women causes, false statements on voter polls, anti-global warming, recent disclosures about Benghazi being a political hack job and bringing up the past are all hurting the common people, the lower and middle class, not those politicians. And then there are the Religionists.
Thats what this section is about, exposing the second largest group of slime who seem to be slithering out of the vents just like in the movie "The Blob". Fake Politicos and Fake Religionists. Politicians are always claiming God is on their side, and the religious right is claiming they know who is the best God to lead this nation. Maybe they should read the constitution, something about Church and State. Which brings us to Religion and the era of the false prophet or is it profit?
The founding fathers came to this land because they couldn't worship the way they wanted to. Few religions are perfect. Only God is perfect, it’s man who screws things up and down through the ages. Sharia law and the Inquisition were and are equal opportunity killers and maimers. No preferences, believe as you wish but that didn’t last long…just google Witch Hunts… the Christian Church is just as guilty.
And today we have a strong right, passionate voice about this becoming the United States of Jesus. This country was based on religious freedom, not the “ My form of Christian God is better than your (XXXXXXXXXX) God thinking of many groups”. The Horrible Fact is: “ The Better God Syndrome” has resulted in the death of more people than any other man made corrupted philosophy in the world.
I HAD TO RETHINK SEX
If you try selling something today without sex in it. Good Luck. This isn't pushing GEICO, you buy GEICO because the law requires it. You buy AX to smell good because you want to copulate more often. That is the message thats sells in the products, they are called pheromone sales.
FOX NEWS sells sex, drop dead gorgeous women, peek-a-boo tops, the long haired tresses, short dresses, long legs and slightly short on thinking, long on tele-prompters. Few if any have degrees in Journalism, most in runway and hairstyling, stage makeup and breathing heavy.
A smaller segment is called the infidelity or Hollywood Reality section. Thats where we are compelled to hear about on at least three major channels all about who is “ Boffing” who!
Your supermarket is a great place to get magazines with all kinds of trash, like about the Kardashians, Americas first family of pretend reality hookers with no frickin talent whatsoever.
Nice to know you became a household word based on the size and shape of your Gluteus Maximus Muscle (YOUR ASS) and “Avoid du pour water bearing tissue”. We have since read she is having difficulty getting her former shape back which proves she is mortal and like the other two billion women on the planet. Simply mortal and not a Goddess.
And the real man hero of the show winds up a changing gender type and I have to be upfront, interviewing some avid watchers honestly telling me he looks better as a woman than a man. Thus writing about Hollywood and their fantasy world is not what this place is about. Where I do connect is if SEX comes into play involving someone in the Political or Religious theatre, after all they are all actors. And they are leaders. And they sometimes betray us when the truth comes out.
THIS IS A NO BULL SH*T/NO SMOKE ZONE
I may see things differently than you, and this site is all about viewpoint, my viewpoint, I hold nothing back and owe no one. I welcome discussion, I am involved every day in think tanks with intelligent people who seek solutions. But you better have a sense of humor, as our politicians do. They think everything is a joke.
I don’t argue with idiotic slogans, immoral rhetoric, not the BS taught on Fox Media by former druggie, 1/2 term college dropout, hyped with a morose sense of values with no credentials, like the former Glenn Beck, and others. And I am not a fan of FOX “Faux” News as the
And I like to draw comparisons. I once explained Washington as a Poker Tournament. Lots of bluffs, eye contact, playing with someone else's money and losers. Thats till you get to the final table, the cards are on the line and then you show your real hand. Yup, in Washington, in the sleeve, thats where the two aces were hidden. There are six in a deck, aren't there?
My unique logo represents No Bullsh*t/No Smoke "emblification". Go chase that word in your Funk and Wagnalls. So lets get a few things out of the way because it may take a while to get used to my sense of humor. I have no problem with communication, I speak in a very "sardastic", language. If you grew up in Brooklyn, you are both sarcastic and slightly sadistic. It's a new word, "sardastic".
TRUTH SITES: SNOPES, POLITIFACT, WIKIPEDIA and others.
I rely heavily on some websites that uncover the distortions and lies, half-truths semi-truths, partial truths, and creative writing by those lightly equipped underachievers with white powdered brains and sensitivities. Yes, I may repeat a few lines from articles and information after I have sourced them out. Truth is truth. And I’m making a point probably shared by others.
Adding to this collection are the quotes and sometimes “ sick" thoughts of brain-farters, aka "entertainers", false assumptions, and conspiracists, those who come up with things lending comfort to other mentally deprived thinkers, truth or not. I call them gas hacks, always throwing fuel on the fire.
My three favorites check out sites are Snopes.com, Politi-Facts and for general information, I reference WIKIPEDIA, the online encyclopedia cross checked with multiple sources.
For ten years, David and Barbara Mikkelson have devoted themselves to double-checking the cannon fodder that permeates the web. Their site www.snopes.com is one of the best on urban myths and flatus dependus moronus. For those not understanding Latin, it means "fart headed moron" which is one who suffers from cranial-rectal dyslexia.
Their site, Snopes, has grown into one of the most popular and influential fact-checking destinations on the Web. In a given week, Snopes tries to set the record straight on everything from political smears to old wives’ tales.
PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in politics. Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times examine statements by members of Congress, the president, cabinet secretaries, lobbyists, people who testify before Congress and anyone else who speaks up in Washington. They research their statements and then rate the accuracy on their Truth-O-Meter – True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True and False.
The most ridiculous falsehoods get the lowest rating, Pants on Fire. They also rate the consistency of public officials on our Flip-O-Meter using three ratings: No Flip, Half Flip and Full Flop. A few bottom lines about urban myths. Dr. Goebbels, Glenn Becks mentor was right, tell a lie, a big one, tell it often and make it loud. Our conclusion: There are a lot of people out there posting items that have only a glancing relationship with the truth and the worst part is they themselves rarely care if it is the truth or not.
