Guns, Religion and Political Correctness

I-LL-GIVE-EM-HELL-Metal-Tin-Signs-Rusted-Poster-Home-Pub-Bar-Wall-Decor

I’m a White Dude. I’m not a Liberal. Not a Snowflake. Not a Leftist.

Nor am I a Conservative or Neo-Con.

I fall somewhere in the margins. I believe fully that the American Citizen should be legally able to own any and every Fire Arm that is owned by the US Government. That includes everything from a .22 Pistol or Revolver to a Browning M2 .50 Calibre Machine Gun. If the State has it, the Citizen should be allowed to have it. I’d even include Grenade Launchers and 90MM Recoil-less Rifles.

A Private American Citizen should be able to purchase and own Body Armor and Kevlar Helmets. All types. Again, if the State has it, the Citizen should be able to own it if they so choose.

I believe in the right of the Citizen to Self Defense. Against all enemies. Foreign and Domestic. We should be able to defend ourselves against local and State Police, the DEA, the ATF, the FBI, the CIA, al Qaeda, ISIS, Antifa, the Weather Underground, Ted Kazinski, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), AIPAC and any other organization that seeks to undermine our Rights as Human Beings.

Note: I left out the Black Panthers. I’ve researched the Black Panthers. They were not a Terrorist Organization. They organized themselves to fight against the Terrorism of the Local and State Police as well as J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI. The FBI has been a terrorist organization since they first handed the reigns over to Hoover. J. Edgar was nothing more than an American State Sponsored quasi-secular Osama bin Laden. The Panthers were not Terrorists. They were a reaction to Jim Crow era Terrorism directed against Black Americans.

I do not like Political Correctness. While I do agree that we should be sensitive to the pain that we may cause others, I will not alter everything about myself or my beliefs to satisfy the moronic hypersensitivities of the thousands of Special Interest groups that cling to the Leftist quasi-Marxist cultural authoritarians of the Democrat Party. The Democratic Elite do not care about these groups. They use these groups as wedges and cultural swords against all who dare defy the Power of the Democratic Party Elite.

Dare ye question Hillary or Chelsea Clinton and you shall surely have these sharp edged morons at your person, your career, your life. The Left as it stands now should be destroyed.

I abhor the Right Wing Xties. These people are not followers of Christ. They know nothing of the words or message of the man whom they call Jesus Christ. They know nothing of Constantine and the truth of how Christianity spread throughout the world. They think God worked mysteriously. No. That’s not how it happened. Christianity spread much as Islam did. By the sword. Through brutality, force, rapine and pillage.

The original Church (Cult) of Christ spread through the word. Through letters and gospel. That ended the moment that Constantine lied about seeing a cross in the sky at Milvian Bridge. It ended the second that God “spoke” to Constantine telling him to conquer in his name.

The great lie of  Christianity is that Constantine, the Roman Emperor, saved the religion and raised it to Imperial power. If it weren’t for this event, Christianity would be another backwater religion in the lands of Islam. Christianity was saved by the very Empire who hung their Messiah from a pole at the behest of the Jews.

These are some of my beliefs. No, I’m not an Atheist. I refuse to label my beliefs. There may or may not be a God. If a God there be, he either cares nothing for human events or, if he is directing them, this God or Gods is a monster.

The history of the world is nothing but conquest, thirst for power, thirst for gold and thirst for land. Unquenchable thirst, it is. For the quest for power, gold and land never ends. Not even in this supposed civilized age.

This brings me to Islam. Islam arose in the deserts of Arabia. Muhammad walked to a cave, heard voices and exited the cave with a new message for his people. He attempted to preach that message and was chased from Mekkah with a few followers. He fled to Medina where he picked up followers overtook the power base and took the city for his own. He then returned to Mekkah at the head of an army. He conquered Mekkah.

From that conquest, he built an Empire based on cave ramblings which he called Islam (Isss-LAHM). Submission to Allah was required of every human being on Planet Earth. Muhammad had no idea of the size of the Earth at that time. He spread Islam by the sword. His armies conquered, raped and pillaged all over the Middle East. His soldiers were paid via plunder. They took from those whom they conquered. They took gold, silver, swords, land, women and slaves.

They gave those whom they conquered three choices:

1. Revert [convert] to Islam
2. Pay at tax (Jizya) to remain as they were and live under special rules as second or third class citizens in their own lands.
3. Die

These are not the actions of a Religion of Peace.

Various Islamic Qaliphate conquered the whole of the Middle East, North Africa, parts of Eastern and Central Africa, Spain and Portugal, Eastern Europe, and much of Asia. There was a part of Vietnam conquered by an Islamic Kingdom called the Cham. The Cham didn’t arrive in the area now known as Vietnam and Cambodia and simply invite people in to create a new Kingdom based upon Islam. They conquered!

When they Leftist Cultural Marxists recite the Pledge to Islam and claim that it is a religion of peace, they fail to reconcile Islamic history with their errant claim.

Islam was born in blood. Islam rises now in blood. The bloody history of Islam is a deluge of violence, conquest, rapine, pillage and slavery.

Oh…and there is that Hijab. Supposedly, this is a symbol of chastity and closeness to God. God needs women to put on a veil to be close to them but men can be close to Allah in shorts and tank tops. How stupid are these women?

I often wonder if any of the members of the Democratic and Republicans are capable of critical thought?

When I reflect upon their attitudes towards God [the Gods] and religion, I come to the only possible conclusion.

Democrats and Republicans have been so brainwashed by the Public Education System that none of them are capable of independent thought. The Christian Right has been further dumbed down by Sunday School. The Left has been lobotomized by Political Correctness.

Perspective on People and their Scribblings

051794ee6dc54b3232750912eb467f8dbad845-wm

From my experience, one can take anyone from before the Politically Correct era of 2000 Forward and call them a bigot based on their writings. It doesn’t matter who we’re discussing. Even today, one can find bigotry in nearly anyone’s writings. If you one wishes to dismiss the ideas or writing of any person because of that one aspect, one would wind up dismissing nearly the whole of humanity. From W.E.B. Dubois to George Washington to Ronald Reagan to Bill Clinton, every last person who has put thought to paper has written something that is or could be construed as racist and will be construed as racist or bigoted by future generations. This is especially so with the current hyper-sensitive generation of Liberal.

If one wishes to seriously discuss a person or a social issue, one must take the whole of a person and the whole of the body of writing or work into consideration. Short slices or quotes from persons are excellent for memes and deconstruction of selected persons. However, this never gives a true and satisfying window into the soul of the person whom one is attempting to understand.
If character assassination is the goal, memes and selected quotes/slices without context are excellent weapons. Yet, they only serve to distort and distract.
Hillary can be made to look the fool if we take selected comments and opinions. Even Einstein can be made to look the dithering fool using his words detached from context against him.

Noam Chomsky is an especially dissected author and thought leader. If one takes only Chomsky as critic of Israel, one can make the man out to be a supporter of Islamic Tyranny. If one takes only his views of Vietnam or Cambodia into consideration, one could make Chomsky out to be a supporter of genocide and communist tyranny. Yet, if one reads the whole of his works and uses an overview thereof, one can see that Chomsky is a great critic of Imperialism as a whole. His views are as valid if not more so than many others of his generations and this one.
To know and understand a person from history, one must know the whole of the life not selected pieces of that life which are pulled out selectively with an agenda.

Jefferson can seem a genius or a racist crackpot depending on the level of knowledge of the man. Ceaser can seem the despot or the liberator. There is not a human being who has tread across the globe who cannot be made to seem monster or hero depending upon which work or word one chooses to use in support of one’s views.

A Storm is Brewing and Backlash is Coming

images

Various Leftist & Liberals are all abuzz about White People shouting “White Power” at the latest Trump Rally.

 
I have been calling this for the past few years.
 
White People grow tired of being blamed for every evil in the world. Many White Americans feel powerless. Yet, they are told that every evil under the sun is their fault.
 
Each and every day, there are articles, News & Popular Programming telling White People that they should feel guilt and that they should accept blame for every evil perpetrated since the beginning of European Colonialism and beyond.
 
Every White American, no matter how poor, how powerless, how disenfranchised should be ashamed of their skin color because of Institutionalized Racism.
 
Even in Boston where the City Government is nearly completely under Black Control, White People are to blame for every sin committed by that Black Led Government.
 
Eventually, you are going to exhaust the patience of these people. Eventually, there will be backlash.
 
The #BlackLivesMatter crowd takes it too far. They fail to acknowledge Black on Black Violence and scream that there is a problem of White Violence in America. This despite the fact that most Black Violent Crime is perpetrated upon other Black People.
 
White Heroes of the past are vilified for views that were current for their era. Even White Heroes such as Nathan Bedford Forrest who came around to a different view and became a supporter of the cause of Freedmen are vilified for their previous views and sins. No allowance is made for era or a change in viewpoint.
 
White People, once labeled evil, are forever after evil. No discussion is allowed.
 
White People are told that they are bigoted if they do not agree with the Political Correct gibberish that is regurgitated by every Liberal talking head on TV.
 
If you are White, you are inherently evil because of your skin color. If you are White, you cannot have White Pride or discuss White Power. All the while, Black people, Mexicans and Arabs, Asian peoples and others are not only allowed to talk about Yellow Pride, Black Power, Mexican Pride, etc but are encouraged to do so.
 
The Backlash begins with Trump. It is coming.
 
How ugly it gets is dependent upon many factors. One of which is the economy. I fear that the economy is about to turn for the worst. If it does, Obama will be blamed. He will be blamed because of the Democrats and their bragging about the “Obama Recovery.”
 
If the economy takes a hit worse than that of 2008, it will get ugly.
 
The coming backlash coupled with a serious economic downturn could bring about a perfect storm of hate and violence.
 
The tragedy is that all of this could have been avoided.
 
The election of Obama was a perfect time to sort through real issues in a National Dialogue. However, Obama has performed horribly as a leader on Race Issues. He has ignored the plight of the African American Community. He has antagonized the White Majority with idiot decisions such as sending representatives to Michael Browns funeral and not sending representatives to other funerals. His abysmally obtuse statements during the Zimmerman-Martin brouhaha angered all too may Americans. Obama’s healthcare program was designed to enrich his cronies in the Health and Insurance Industries and this was all too obvious to anyone who was not a partisan. His performance vis a vis Iraq, ISIS and Syria has been wretched and will lead to misfortune in the future. The most unfortunate aspect of his Middle East failures is that the Iran Deal receives undue pressure and criticism because of his failures across the Middle East.
 
All of these issues are coming to a head. With the economy heading towards a reckoning, America is in for a storm. It may get ugly. I may get real ugly.

Who will lead America through this storm? Can a President Trump do so? I have no faith in any of the establishment Politicians.

I’m of the opinion that Trump can do no worse than a Bush or a Clinton. I’d prefer Trump with a Vice President Paul, though.

I’m a White Dude

Camp Scorpion, Every 4 months

I’m a White dude — pure bred Cracker of Scots-Irish, Swiss origin. I think…that’s what legend tells me.

I’ve been subjected to racism. For instance, I was jumped by 8 Black guys when I was in the Army in Baumholder, Germany. I was one of four separate victims that night.

I never once used “Race” or “Color” to stereotype Black People. I don’t see life in binary colors.

I’ve had Black, Hispanic, Asian and, yes, White friends for as long as I can remember. I lived on Pope Street in Louisville, Kentucky. One street down the hill was Williams Street — home to the Page brothers who were pretty good boxers. We lived in the shadow of Muhammad Ali and we grew up believing him to be a larger than life hero.

I once walked into a room full of Black guys about half of whom were my friends. Jack, the guy who looked a helluva a lot like Ice Cube, yelled; “Hey fuckin’ Cracker! What the hell do you want?”

I answered; “Nothin’ Nigga!”

And the whole room cracked up laughing.

I’ve always had excellent relationships with anyone who wasn’t an ass.

I never really cared about the whole color thing on an individual level while simultaneously being fascinated by cultural differences.

Where I work now, my Boss calls me “White boy!” and I laugh and rejoin with “Nothing’, ya fuckin’ racist bastard.” And we all laugh.

I fully realize that my being White has contributed greatly to the ease with which I interact with and benefit from/with people and those who have hired me and for whom I have worked — Black, White, Hispanic, Araba, Asian and any other race you can name.

I know for a fact that being White has granted me access to places, events, people and things all over the world.

In China and most of Southeast Asia, people are fascinated by my “Whtie skin.” Asia has a “White is beauty, Black is ugly” dynamic that is, quite frankly, appalling. My girlfriend of several years used to tell me that she was Black. She’s approximately the color that most White girls aspire to when they are tanning. And when she tans, White women are jealous of it.

Strange, I know.

I constantly tell my girlfriend that she is beautiful. “Black” skin and all.

In Afghanistan, the Afghan Officers with whom I work told me that my girlfriend looks African and is too dark and that I should find a nice White woman and then show me photos of Iranian women who are only slightly lighter skinned than my girlfriend.

Skin color is confusing. The slightest shades make huge differences to people.

In Egypt, I was granted access to touristy places that were shut off to most because the strange tourist officials wanted to take pictures with the big white guy whom they kept calling Hercules. They virtually ignored my friend Humberto who was also American of Mexican origin because, well, he looked like them.

I have benefited from my skin color. I’ve also made great sacrifices to get to where I am. I’ve risked my life and taken chances that most Americans could never dream of.

I have helped many, many people along my journey. Some White, Some Black, Some Arab, Some Asian…Muslims, Christians, Atheists and Jewish, Buddhist and Hindu.

If I thought helping them would not come back to bite me in the ass or, more importantly, hinder me in helping others, I help others. I turned down my own White cousin when she asked for help with a recommendation and I told her the reason. She had a poor track record and I didn’t want her quitting on me and ruining it for some other who deserved the assist. She understood and we are still quite close.

I say all of this not to say that I’m a good person and not racist. I fully recognize that every human has built in and learned prejudices. I am not a good person. I’m not a bad person. I’m simply a human being who tries, sometimes fails and sometimes succeeds in treating others as I would like to be treated.

When “People of Color” (such a silly term…as if we aren’t all colored uniquely) make blanket statements about White people or White Americans, I get a bit touchy.

I’m a White person. I fully realize that racism exists and I have spent my life actively fighting it. I’ve called White and Black people out on their Bigotry. When a White friend used the word “nigger” in the privacy of our barracks room, I ripped him a new one. When a Black friend said all Afghans are “worthless raghead pieces of shit,” I ripped him a new one. Likewise when folks act foolishly and stereotype all Thai people when they’ve been insulted or in some way wronged by one Thai person, I refute their lunatic assertions that all Thai people are this, that or the other.

There is no such animal as a “person of color.” There are no two people on this planet that are the same color. “White” people are not bereft of color. I know White people who grew up in predominantly Black neighborhoods who “act Black” and cannot code switch to “Whitey-eze.”

I know Black people who cannot speak urban slang or “Ebonics.” I know 2ndGen Colombian-Americans who do not speak a word of Spanish and I know Mexicans who can barely speak English.

To portray all of any people any thing is an injustice. Constantly reading articles by “People of Color” and “Allies of People of Color” (I’m not ever sure what the hell that means…) telling me that “White people are…..” or “Why White people freak out when told they are racists” and other inane articles without an ounce of nuance irritate the shit out of me.

I cringe. Why? I know the reaction to these articles is nothing more than tens of thousands of minds slamming shut!

I know that if I made a stereotyping statement about any group except for “White” people, I would be branded a racist by those of you who wish to pretend that the world is divided between “people of color” and White people.

I know that I have seen Black people treated worse in Africa than I’ve ever seen them treated in America. I was born in 1968. I know that one of my good friends holds a hell of a lot of anger because of his upbringing in South Carolina and his Grandfathers treatment at the hands of White Southerners.

There is much injustice in America. There always has been. More than likely, there always will be.

There is racism, bigotry and discrimination in America. I know this for a fact.

None of these things will be solved…ever…if we do not learn how to have real, honest and open dialogue.

White people can experience bigotry including racism.

If any American ever stopped to think about it, Europeans (i.e., White People, Crackers, Whitey) are the minority on this planet. Europe began its ascendancy geo-politically a mere 400 years ago. Prior to that, the largest “White” Empire was Rome. There is much evidence that Rome was much more ethnic than the European Colonizers would have us believe.

At some point, we must begin to be honest with each other. We must be open. We must stop accusing all or none. We must accept differences. Not tolerate but ACCEPT and we must do so in an open manner.

I have seen this work.

I have always been accepted for who I am and have always accepted folks for who they are. I fell into it. I was lucky. I learned to look past differences early on in my life. I have been rewarded countless times for this fortunate accident.

It is…unfortunate that we can’t all simply accept differences and move on together.

RETARDED and the Liberal Narrative Control Aspirations (Political Correctness)

10577201_793475214030538_1536521777123789465_n

Retarded is a valid word.

What is better about the word “challenged?”

One should not call this girl “retarded” but her mental capacity is retarded.

Retarded means less advanced in mental, physical, or social development than is usual for one’s age.

It also means foolish or stupid.

It’s all about context.

In point of fact, this little gal is “retarded” as she is less advanced in mental, physical or social development than is usual for one who is her age.

Retarded is a word. Words are assigned value by humans who create them and use them. The mere fact that one person uses the word in a derogatory manner does not mean that the use of the word is universally derogative in nature.

However, the insistence by the Left to assign permanent value to language is a bit of a sign of their cultural and societal retardation.

Language evolves. Constantly. Language is nearly always in flux.

The word “Ball” is perfectly illustrative of this phenomenon.

Ball has been used over the centuries to denote:

1. A round or other shaped object used in playing games.

2. An organized dance or other social gathering.

3. Fun or having fun

4. The act of playing basketball well.

I am certain there are more examples that I could use here.

In short, get over it liberals. Words are words. They have only the power that we assign them. Liberals are all too eager to assign to words some negative connotation and to thrust that definition on to society as a means of forcing conversations and controlling the narrative. We need no new victims. We need empowered humans who aren’t afraid to face the world.

WORDS ARE NOT RACIST

images (1)

Words are not racist. Racism is about intent. If I say a word and mean nothing racist by it, that word is not racist.

I’m a White dude. My Black friends tell me that I’m a “Nigger” all the time. I’m not offended by it. Hell, I’m one of the few White people around who can say the word to Black people and THEY aren’t offended by it.

It’s all about intent and relationships.

I get called White boy, Cracker and all kinds of things such as that by Black people. It’s because they know that I’m not concerned about faux outrage or the color of their or my skin. I’m concerned about the content of their character and their intent.

What is meant when someone speaks is more important than the words that are used. If I say; “Call a spade a spade.” to a Black person, I don’t mean it in a racist way. I mean that one should speak plain. If I call someone a Black Bastard, I’m always joking and, actually, making light of the racism that pervades cross racial relations in America.

People know who you are. They will react accordingly.

Words are tools. Words can do no harm except to the mentally and emotionally weak. The problem with America today is that we have raised a couple of generations of mentally and emotionally weak persons who embrace victimhood.

America should grow a pair and stop being offended by every utterance. Get off the phone, get off the computer, get out of your shell and get to know people.

Racism will always be with us. It is a global phenomenon. In America, it is comparatively mild. I’ve lived all over the world and the racism in other parts of the globe is virulent and deadly as compared to that of America. We have made great strides in coming to understand each other as a people. Do not discount this.

CharlieBrownRacistI think what disturbs many CRACKERS is that no matter how much they reach out, the hand is smacked back by raceprofessionals like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and those idiots on MSNBC and at Daiy Kos.

Not all of American White people give a damn about racism. They’ve got their own problems. Racism is not something that a poor or lower middle class White person is going to spend a whole lot of time thinking about when they have to struggle to put food on the table, a roof over their children’s heads and everything else that goes into surviving in consumerist America.

e61daced46044ed4e75746a84418005250ec74117e571fc8e06becf1effbd92bBefore people can come to terms fully with ideals such as racial harmony, they must be secure. Most Americans simply do not feel secure enough to spend a lot of time thinking about race. This is something that liberal elitists spend time constructing and deconstructing. The average White American just wants to get through the week and spend time at home with their family orhave a beer on a Friday Night. Some of them even have those beers with people of other races.

Perhaps, I am an outlier but I grew up with people of other races. Immigrants from India, Pakistan, Black Americans, Hispanics and Asians were my friends from grade school up through High School and in the Army.

I’m never quite certain what to make of made up, faux issues such as words that are “racist.” It all seems like hogwash to me. When I ask my Black friends about this stuff, the majority of them look at me like I’m nuts.

And when you get right down to it, Miley Cyrus is really Justin Beiber in drag.

 

The Irish and PriceWaterhouseCooper Must Be Retarded

This has got to be the dumbest scandal in the history of dumb scandals.

Having met a few “holier than thou” Leftist PC from Hell Irish Dudes here in Bangkok, though, I can understand how this is an issue on the Emerald Isle.

Bunch of freakin’ panty wastes!!!!

Accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) is mired in scandal after a group of 17 male employees in Dublin started forwarding around a “top 10” list of their picks for the most attractive female employees in the office. We have it.

The frat boy behavior of 17 Irish PWC employees is quickly becoming an international incident. The company has already launched an investigation after the email was forwarded all over Ireland, and made its way into the newspapers there today:

“We are taking this matter extremely seriously and are launching a full investigation. We will take all necessary steps and actions in line with our firm’s polices and procedures,” PWC’s human resources partner Carmel O’Connor said last night.

Accounting trade magazines have picked up the story; once it hits the British tabloids, it’ll certainly be a PR nightmare for PWC—which has 2,000 employees in Ireland, and 160,000 worldwide. It’s already circulated widely in the Irish corporate world, and the media there has seen it, but no news outlet has published it yet.

Judge for yourself. (Don’t get all exercised; there’s nothing pornographic, it’s standard company photos and titles.) Perhaps this will serve as a warning to office-working dudes across the corporate world: Don’t do this.

They need an investigation?  Why?  Gather the morons together.  Smack them on the wrist with unpaid time off and put it to rest.  The biggest crime here is that it’s a top ten list with 13 gals on it.

AND IT’S AN ACCOUNTING FIRM!!!

P.S.  I’ve met a few cool Irish dudes as well.  So don’t get your panties in a wad.

Random Thoughts on the Week!

Best Buy Ad Touting Muslim Holiday Sparks Debate

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

A Best Buy ad with a Muslim theme is raising questions of how retailers should mark religious holidays.

The ad on BestBuy.com wishes Muslims a happy Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holiday that lasts three days and happens to fall on the extended Thanksgiving weekend.

A BestBuy.com message board has been filled with mixed responses since the ad was posted, MyFoxTwinCities.com reports.

One says, “Thank you Best Buy for the Eid Greetings!! I plan to spend more money at BB (Best Buy.) Thank you for being inclusive of various cultures.”

Another post wasn’t as supportive: “Happy Eid Al-Adha but no Merry Christmas? I assume your next advertisements will say Merry Christmas. Otherwise, I will no longer shop at best buy. I will shop at those businesses which support Christmas.”

Best Buy released a statement saying, “We do use the word ‘holiday’ in some of our advertising because it is meant to be inclusive to everyone. However, just as we have in the past, we will also reference specific holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa in our weekly ads, store signage and other advertising vehicles.”

I don’t get it.  I don’t understand how marketing firms can think it is non-offensive to generalize Christian Holidays and then specifically market to Muslims on  Islamic holidays.  I don’t have a problem with gearing their marketing towards Muslims and their holidays.  Though, were I Muslim, I’d be offended with the commercial targeting of such a holy occasion.  However, I question the wisdom of surrendering to the PC Police when it comes to Christianity by steering away from the use of terms like “Merry Christmas” and instead using Happy Holidays while specifically targeting Muslim holidays and using Islamic terms in the advertising such as “Eid Mubarak.”  Muslims be careful.  This is the first step towards commercializing your holy days.  The last step is the loss of all meaning except gaining a profit from your religious and semi-religious cohorts.

As the old saying goes, BUYER BEWARE!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I believe that God has no true connection to any of the established religions of our age.  Every religioin/church of our age is an offshoot of some system of governance and all have been used for the accumulation and furtherance earthly authority/power.

I believe that God loves all of humanity and accepts all of mankind despite religious belief or affiliation. Furthermore, I believe that if he was as active an interloper in the affairs of man, he would have destroyed all of the current set of religions much as the Bible portrays him as destroying Sodom and Gomorra. All earthly religions are corruptions of the true spirit of God and humanity.  Whether it be the Protestant/Catholic schism of Christianity or the Shi’a/Sunni schism of Islam, all sow discord and divide when they should be uniting energies for all of mankind.

Only when a religion unites mankind through compassion, spirituality and love–faith, hope and love–only then will a religion have the true authority and standing of God.

God is Faith.

God is Hope.

God is Love

For all of humanity. Not one race. Not one belief. Not only for straight people. Not only for Jews or gentiles or Muslims or Hindus or anyone one specific people.

God is for all of humanity.

Enough on Religion and it’s ill effects on humanity.

My boy Farhad is leaving for Iran on Saturday. He probably won’t be back until after I depart for leave. Today, I wrote him a letter of introduction to the Embassy of the Netherlands for his Visa application. If all goes well, he’ll depart for the Netherlands before I return. I’m going to miss Farhad.   And so it begins, the end draws near.
