Buy a Jesus Freak a gun!



The Abi-Ur-Hamm (ic) Abrahamic religions are constantly at war with each other. If they succeed in killing each other completely then the world WILL be a better place. (Remember: Abraham (Abi Ur Hamm) and Hammurabi (Hamm Ur Abi) are variations of the SAME LEGEND). (One is borrowed from the other - e.g. Hammurabi is a much older story a PDF)

Arnaud Amalric (died 1225) was a Cistercian abbot who took a prominent role in the Albigensian Crusade. He is remembered for supposedly advising a soldier, who was worried about killing orthodox Catholics instead of just heretic Cathars prior to the sack of Béziers. His advice is the origin of the modern phrase, "Kill them all and let God sort them out.





Take the bread... good boy!







Get it?

TTB®

I was thinking about "Trump True Believers" (TTB®).

"Why did all those Economically Anxious™ Trump voters reject policies that would have helped relieve their economic anxiety?

Maybe they believed any Big Government expansions would disproportionately go to the “wrong” kinds of people — that is, people unlike themselves."

Where BELIEVING starts, THINKING stops!

The believing mind is resilient to change - beliefs are crystallized structures (sorta like a tumor). Yes, the believing mind is a diseased mind!



In recent years, though, we have started to better understand the neural bases of states like happiness, gratitude, resilience, love, compassion, and so forth. And better understanding them means we can skillfully stimulate the neural substrates of those states—which, in turn, means we can strengthen them. Because as the famous saying by the Canadian scientist Donald Hebb goes, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.”

"Trump True Believers" (TTB®) need a long trip to Tibet. Or at least a long trip.





Andrew Leonard's piece in Rolling Stone, “How LSD Microdosing Became the Hot New Business Trip,” is a good start.



When I went to Chico State College (in the late 1960s), we called Jesus freaks "Jesus FREAKS." And we, it turns out, were correct. (The "right" is seldom correct.)

Besides, it turns out that "Jesus IS a mushroom."



It's not the wafer, it's the shroom!

And for followers of the Qu'ran, it's 72 white grapes (or raisins).

"Will Muslim Martyrs Get 72 Raisins?"

Wait, and see.

this is the end...



in some circles, temperatures that are 50 degrees (F) or 20 degrees (C) above normal raise more than eyebrows. These temperatures raise sea levels - by a lot!

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again



If the temperature is 20 degrees higher in Tempe, AZ, or the upper mid-west this summer, we will see "climate refugees" swarming to cooler locations.

French-speaking Indians who live deep in Louisiana bayou, some 50 miles south of New Orleans, became the United States' first official climate refugees when the federal government awarded them $48 million to relocate.

It's high time (or high tide) to steal that $48 million!



Donald Trump plans to change Veterans' Health Care that will push the VA toward privatization. A $3,500 annual voucher should cover all your war injuries, soldier!

Trump knows what is good for Amerika - more homeless! The Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) Program provides VA with a way to reach and assist homeless Veterans by offering them entry to VA care. Trump, and the republicans will END THAT! The outspoken veterans were shouted down by ignorant bullies (e.g. trump supporters).

Mother, it's cold outside! Besides, the homeless have nothing for trump to steal.

What can WE do?

Stay warm and dry. With 7,400,000,000 people on the planet, 5 billion have to be culled out - one way or the other.

Trump wants to restart TESTING.

Ask the "Downwinders" what they think of the idea.

Here is a typical Trump supporter, ask him.



At first, he will stand his ground.



And then he will say: "Are you talkin' to me?"

the Parable of the Shirt

This morning, I got up and included a pink shirt in my attire.

I choose my shirt based on what is next in line in the closet.



I went to PEETs coffee, shopped for a few groceries, and headed home.

When I returned home, I put on my computer reading glasses and noticed that what I previously thought was a pink shirt was, in fact, a pink STRIPED shirt.



Now remember, in Buddhism, we are taught to reject dualism (e.g. solid v. striped).

I even thought I should consider rejecting the dualism of pink (color) v. white (apparent lack of color). In fact "white is a mixture of the three primary colors of light (red, green, and blue) to which the cones in our eyes respond.



Dark is the absence of light. Bright is a plethora of photons striking the rods in our eyes.



Darkness is also a metaphor for ignorance as in "Dark Ages."

On the other hand, which is handy, light is alleviation of ignorance - knowledge.



Then, owing to a wee bit of reflective thinking, I arrived at the conclusion that I was wasting a copious quantity of time on something (like most things) that "didn't matter."

A little bit like the time you just spent reading this posting.

Greater or lesser, we are only the vehicle by which consciousness is aware of itself.

We pretend to vote, they pretend to be 'elected.'



Almost a week has passed since the presidential election and still all the votes have not officially been counted. The Associated Press has not yet called the last states standing, Michigan and New Hampshire, because recounts in both are still possible. Michigan and New Hampshire’s unofficial vote tallies, however, are in, and the margins are slim.



President-elect Donald Trump is currently winning Michigan by 13,107 votes and at 47.6 percent, compared to Hillary Clinton at 47.3 percent. Clinton leads New Hampshire by 2,701 votes at 47.6 percent, compared to Trump at 47.2 percent.



If these margins hold, Trump will officially take 306 Electoral College votes from 30 states and Clinton will take 232 Electoral College votes from 20 states plus Washington, D.C. Though Trump has well surpassed the 270 electoral votes need to win the election, Clinton has undoubtedly won the popular vote. Clinton currently leads the popular vote with 61,039,676 votes to Trump’s 60,371,193, according to the Associated Press’ latest numbers.



There have been four other elections, most recently during President George W. Bush's election in 2000, when a president has been elected without the support of the popular vote. Trump took issue with the Electoral College during his campaign, calling the system “disastrous” and repeatedly suggesting a rigged election. Despite his win, he said he stands by his opinion of the Electoral College.

A Salt, and Battery

A salt:



and a battery:



"It's not just Samsung..."

So... unless your brain is in a jar at the door, you know 'the times, they are a changing.'



Mankind is driving global warming to the tipping point (which I think is now best expressed in the past tense - drove global warming past the tipping point.)



The time will soon arrive when humans will no longer inhabit the planet. (Oh well!)



It's all good (good bye).

Mind over Matter

Once again, anything that cannot be RATIONALLY explained, can be IRRATIONALLY explained.

Start first with rationalism...

The universe we sense is, no doubt, about 1% of the universe.

But, the short answer is: "It doesn't matter!"

Padre Pio, a.k.a. Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, was a friar, priest, stigmatist, and mystic, now another saint in the Roman Catholic Church.



Prayer is often claimed to be beneficial. Academics disagree.

"The first known studies were published in 1873 by English polymath Francis Galton. He found no statistical evidence that prayer prolonged life or reduced stillbirths..."



You are you own religious authority. There is no other. The list of those NOT TO TRUST is almost endless!

Google it for yourself!



Saint Richard, a.k.a. Dick - the b*t f*cker... It's only 1 in 50!

With so many Roman Catholic Ministers world wide, it makes some sense that some confuse "fruit of the womb" with Fruit of the Loom.





Knock, knock. JW Paedophiles.



Letter From Rome
The Vatican’s Secret Life
Despite headlines about a powerful “gay lobby” within the Vatican, and a new Pope promising reform, the Catholic Church’s gay cardinals, monks, and other clergy inhabit a hidden netherworld. In Rome, the author learns how they navigate the dangerous paradox of their lives.

It's not just JWs or Great Mother Cult folks. HERE is a list of recent players.

British Baptists are carrying out a review of cases of "inappropriate behaviour or abuse" by ministers in an investigation that goes back as far as the 1940s.

THIS is a nice read (where I got the picture below).

It's ALL funny!

Jack T. Chick, the infamous Evangelical comic book artist, who even the "Christian Research Institute" (CRI) critiqued as being inaccurate, died yesterday at the age of 92.



Well, he will miss halloween this year (or will he?)

Here is just ONE of his goofy comix.

All I have is a few words of advice:







Even Shiro understands more than Jack ever did!



Grow a fur coat, winter is coming!

What "if..."

What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 Electoral votes?

If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, the do-nothing House of Representatives might elect the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most Electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote. The [Republican] Senate would elect the Vice President from the 2 Vice Presidential candidates (Pence) with the most Electoral votes. Each Senator would cast one vote for Vice President. If the House of Representatives fails to elect a President by Inauguration Day, the Vice-President Elect serves as acting President until the deadlock is resolved in the House. Jill Stein could be the next president!



Well, there ARE interesting times (in terms of popularity).





Trump most unfavorable candidate ever - USA Today
Among U.S. adults, Trump has a 63% unfavorable rating. Previously, former president George H.W. Bush held the highest unfavorable rating for a major-party candidate, in 1992.



Moon and wife were crowned King and Queen of the World in the US Senate Office Building - under Republican watchdogs.



What would MAD say?



It's all in the family.



More families, more marriages!



What a scum-bag.



The GOP literally worshipped Moon - and his newspaper.





Nebraska Leadership Conference - "The Franklin Cover-up."

Human life - v. nickles and dimes.



Golly, gee-whizz, why didn't I read about this, Mr. Peabody?



Read about it HERE!



Moon pulled Jerry Fall-Well's fat out of the fire.



Well, the moon has set on the Moonies.

And the sun is setting on the satanic corrupt homos in the GOP.

As for the Moonies???
