Is The Lord Evil?

Just finished reading a book where the author contends the Creator was/is Evil

His contention is: The creator created this universe so he/she could set back and laugh at us or just amuse himself watching our antics.

The Creator is indeed fascinated and actually thrilled watching us self-destruct as the following examples attest to.

Watching us kill each other because of our determination that we are the only ones that know him for real.

Watching us come unglued when someone says “Happy Holidays.”

Watching us condemn others because they have sexual preferences that are different from ours.

In some places they even murder people for having these sexual preferences. What a laugher that is.

Looking on in amusement when Americans get totally upset viewing videos of terrorists beheading prisoners and ignoring the same deed when done by our “friends” in Saudi Arabia. (19 times in the last month)

The creator laughs out loud (LOL) when the people cringe in fear after terrorists kill 129 in Paris while ignoring the thousands killed annually by gunfire in the United States.

Ah yes the Creator does indeed enjoy the fruits of his/her efforts don’t you think.

The book “The Owner of All Infernal Name” by John Zande

The author goes into much more detail explaining the premise. The book is a living example of Poe’s law, it does make uncomfortable sense.

It can be purchased from Amazon with all profits going to Animal Shelters in Brazil.

Food for thought my friends.

Last Summer at the Pickle Festival in Pinconning Michigan

While attending this festival and wearing a Bernie Sanders t-shirt a senior gentleman asked me “Who is this Bernie fellow and what is he running for?”

I replied “He is running for President on the Democratic ticket.” He replied “Oh you mean that fellow from New Hampshire?” I paused for a moment not sure if i should correct him as to Bernie’s home state being Vermont, lovely wife piped in with, “Yes, are you going to vote for him?”

He responded with a quick and abrupt “No.” I just smiled and walked on.

Now fast forward to last week. Leaving the doctor’s office at Covenant Medical Center. 800 Cooper Avenue Saginaw, Michigan. Waiting for what must be the slowest elevator in the continental United States.  I was wearing the shirt pictured here.


The elevator doors opened and two senior folk, one man one woman looked at me and simultaneously said. “I like your shirt.” I smiled and said “thank you, I like it too”.

We are making progress….  join us at.

Thanks and carry on my friends, carry on!  :)

Discussions with 50 something, white guy Republicans

Having a few friends that fill this criteria gives me a great deal of thought. My first thought is usually “how can these guys be so dumb?”.

But then I just accept the fact that these guys are not really dumb, just uneducated as to what is really going on in the world.

First case came about a few weeks ago when golfing with three of these dudes. We were on the 8th tee when they began talking about how a professional golfer had just won 2 million dollars in a tournament and complained about only getting about $800,000 after taxes. I could only hold my silence for so long and then said. “I would be more than happy to take the $800,000 for a week’s pay and he can have my paycheck in trade. Most likely not having to pay any taxes.”

Of these three, one maybe two have enough money to not rely on Social Security for retirement income. Not that any of them would forgo the income but, I am sure they could survive nicely without it.

But I did ask them how they can show so much concern for a professional golfer that makes 2 million dollars for a week’s work and consider a single mother to be a leach on society for receiving food stamps. They went silent on me and went back to discussing their tee shots.

Then Saturday evening while sharing a few barley pops with a few other gentlemen of the same age group I mentioned how Michigan’s Republicans were raising taxes and fees to repair our dismal roads. Adding for good measure, the national Republicans were working on taking away both Social Security and Medicare. Something they will be relying on sooner than they think.

This group did seem to agree with me as to the unfairness of raising taxes on gasoline that would have a more devastating effect on lower income folk than on the wealthy few. They also expressed dismay, or was it disbelief, at my statement regarding Social Security and Medicare? Hopefully they will do some searching on this matter and maybe, just maybe they will “see the light” and stop voting Republican.

One can only hope, and continue in the efforts at educating the unknowing.

Wish me luck. ;)

Lady shoots at suspects in Auburn Hills, Michigan

So this is the plan (Sarcasm)

47 year old woman shoots at suspected thieves in Auburn Hills Michigan.

This has led to some deep thought by Republicans, as follows:

This lady is obviously a “good guy/gal” with a gun.

Let’s provide all “good guys/gals” with guns.

Doing so will allow us to eliminate the need for police. Followed by an elimination of taxes paid for police forces.

Armed citizens will be trained to shoot anyone they decide is a crook. They will be trained to shoot to kill, this will decrease the need for prisons, another tax savings.

Of course with most suspects killed, the need for judges and courts will be lessened. again saving tax dollars.

Let’s do this.

Urban Police Forces in America need a renewal

Not a day goes by without another story about a white cop treating an African-American with total disrespect. Frequently resulting in a brutal beating of the citizen and occasionally resulting in death.
These officers leave their lily white suburban homes every day and enter the cities to police the “savages” within. This has to stop and it has to stop now.
We are not talking about the occasional “bad apple”, we are talking about all the apples. The good apples have either been spoiled already or have been indoctrinated to stay true to the blue in all matters.
A communities’ police force must represent the community. The people must be allowed to police themselves.
Current officers should be reassigned to sit in lawn chairs with assault rifles guarding recruitment sites or perhaps movie theaters. Any that have enough time should be OFFERED an early retirement.
Hire and train new officers from within the neighborhoods they will be policing, only then will we be able to trust the police again.
As it stands the current police are merely the foot soldiers of the oligarchs in control. Proven by their reaction to Occupy Wall Street versus their reaction to armed people having them in their sites during the Cliven Bundy incident.
Political revolution is coming to America. Enjoy!

Another Shooting another ho hum in America

Gunman Kills 2, himself in Lafayette, Louisiana, Movie Theater

We can all thank God the shooter was a white male, had he been a Muslim it would have been a terrorist attack and had it been a black male it would have been a thug, in this case it was just a white man with mental problems. A man that somehow had access to a 40 caliber handgun. No problem there.
And speaking of God, unfortunately, it appears she was in an adjoining theater watching the Minions during the shooting, what a shame.
Who would have thunk, God would prefer the Minions over Trainwreck. Less profanity I suspect.
Meanwhile the *“oathkeepers” are torn between their desire to protect our military and their desire to get more publicity by protecting movie goers nationwide.
*Oathkeepers the real thugs with guns in our society.

Have a nice day and remember, wear protective gear if attending a movie or a prayer meeting at a black church.

Last Friday afternoon

rodney king
I was standing in line at the local fruit market. Placed 4 peaches on the conveyor and heard a pleasant male voice behind me say. “That’s a healthy choice.”
I paused for a moment thinking, should I respond and what should I say.
I turned around and saw a very tall and slender young black man standing there. I did a double take at his height and a memory quickly passed through my mind.
I remembered years ago, when I met a very tall and slender young white man. Someone in our group told me to ask him if he played basketball. I said hi to the young man and he said “I don’t play basketball and if anyone else asks me I may punch him in the mouth.”
Believe it or not, the thought had flashed through my head to ask the young man standing behind me if he played basketball but that memory crossed it off just as fast as it came.
So I looked again at the young man and said “man…. how tall ARE you?” He grinned and replied “six foot eight”.
I said “wow” and continued with. “You know when I was about your age I remember standing up in church and looking around to find I was frequently the tallest guy standing.” “Now, standing next to you I am just another short guy. Every generation gets taller and taller.”
The young man still smiling said “yes it appears that way.”
I paid the clerk the $2 for the 4 peaches and told her to have a nice day. I turned to the young man gave him a gentle punch on the arm and said. “And you, you continue to be and walk tall.”
He chuckled and said thank you.
This man and I will most likely never cross paths again, but his pleasant smile and kind demeanor made me feel a little better in that moment. I hope I did the same for him.
It is after all, these small non-consequential interchanges between humans, which make this world a better place to live in.
Say something nice to a stranger today.
