What's the Hoopla...

over this darling, Sarah Palin? I go to work each day of week. Nobody talks about her at work. Why is MSNBC making a big hay about her? I just thought about it yesterday about who Sarah Palin might be following? Who is her mentor? Who is her example? Is it Jesus? No! How about Buddha? Well, she didn't quit so that she can have some inner peace. Well then, who? It's Richard Nixon. That's who she's following but the only problem with this is that Richard Nixon DID serve as vice-president in the Eisenhower administration, ran for governor of California and lost. She never has served as vice-president. She lost! And now, she quits her job as governor of Alaska. It must be the water up there. There's no way I can explain it. I thought about this yesterday and today as I turn on "Hardball," Chris Matthews was asking the same question. Is she following Nixon's example? This blew my mind like as if Chris was reading my mind. Hey, I think I may apply for a job at MSNBC! I always wanted to live in the Big Apple.

W. B. Yeats writes....

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
"The ceremony of innocence is drowned,
"The best lack all conviction, while the worst
"Are full of passionate intensity."

Bernie Hoffman/"Tony Alamo" put away for good

I am quite pleased that an anti-Catholic, perverted, pedophile preacher is put away to jail for a long, long, long time. He is head of a cult who was the husband of the late Susan Alamo (if that is her name), who died nearly close to 30 years ago. When she died, ol' Bernie himself did his best to convince the Alamo "Christian" followers that Susan will arise from the dead. Of course, that is something that she did not do and her family fought a long hard battle fighting this crazy cult to give her a proper burial. But, that is not what I am writing about. I am writing about a guy who uses a phony name, a Jew, who is a polygamist, who is a pedophile, who in fact the older he gets, the younger and younger his female victims become, as young as eight, wanting these girls to have sex with them, crossing state lines to do so, and who believes that girls should start having sex as young as ten and that kids that young should go ahead and get married because in his perverted view, they are going to have sex anyway. The SPLC can back up what I've just said. As the jury down in SW Arkansas found him guilty, he was hauled to prison as two young women hold up sign saying,"bye, bye, Bernie" with a caricature of "Alamo" wearing a yalmulke.

What a disgusting human being he is and such a disgusting Jew who fits the stereotype for many people who hates Jews, who has loose morals, are cunning, conniving, who only care about money, and who follow the controversial passages of the Talmud, telling them it's okay to kill a goy, but not a Jew and that it is okay to treat a goy like an animal because Jews are the only human beings around. I do not know if the Talmud says that. Some people do claim it does, but I can't verify it. But as a disgusting human being he is, he has fit the stereotype of the "no-account Jew." He has to go by a phony name. He treats his followers like dung. They could not eat and have proper clothing unless "Papa Tony" gave them permission to do so. Stuff like this makes me become all put out and turned off by religion. May we be free from bigoted, perverted, charlatan preachers like Bernie Lazar Hoffman.

Octavio Paz - This and this and this

The original is a poem entitled "Esto y esto y esto" and I like this poem. It almost reads like "the Revolution will not be televised." Instead of revolution, it is about "surrealism" and the damage it has done.

"Surrealism has been the apple of fire on the tree of syntax
"Surrealism has been the camellia of ash between the breasts of the girl possessed by the ghost of Orestes
"Surrealism has been the dish of lentils that the glance of the prodigal son transforms into the smoking feast of the cannibal king
"Surrealism has been the balm for Fierabras that erases the signs of original sin in the navel of language
"Surrealism has bee the spit on the host and the carnation of dynamite in the confessional and the open sesame to the bank vaults and the iron bars of asylums
"Surrealism has been the drunken flame that guides the steps of the sleepwalker who tiptoes along the edge of the shadow that the blade of the guillotine casts on the neck of the condemned
"Surrealism has been the burning nail in the geometer's forehead and the gust of wind at midnight that lifts the sheets from virgins.
"Surrealism has been the savage bread that cramps the belly of the Society of Jesus until it must vomit all the cats and devils it has inside
"Surrealism has been the fistful of salt that eats away the slugs of social realism
"Surrealism has been the cardboard crown on the headless critic and the viper that slips between the legs of the critic's wife
"Surrealism has been the leprosy of the Christian West and the whip of nine cords that sketches the way out toward other lands other languages and other souls across the backs of brutish and brutalizing nationalism
"Surrealism has been the speech of the child buried in every man and the sprinkling of syllables of milk on the charred bones of Giordano Bruno
"Surrealism has been the seven-league boots of those who escaped from the prisons of dialectical reason and Tom Thumb's hatchet that chops through the knots of the poisonous vines that cover the walls of the petrified revolutions of the Twentieth Century
"Surrealism has been this and this and this"

My comment: "Surrealism is the American politics of the 21st Century brought over from the 20th where Walter Cronkite, a real newsman, has been replaced by the Glenn Becks, the Sean Hannitys, and the Bill O'Reillys who only pretend to be newsmen targeting people who end up being followed, pursued, and possibly put away.

Quotes by Radicals about Bill Clinton

These quotes I am writing down are fine examples of attacks all Democrats receive when they run for high public office and Bill Clinton wasn't the exception. Many of these quotes are proven lies. Robert Dornan was a congressman from the Orange County area in southern California. Rep. Sanchez is now the congresswoman from there. She beat him out and he no longer could get it back. Here is his quote.

"He (Clinton) failed to show up for exams at Oxford. He failed to obey international drug laws. He failed his country. He failed his wife. And now he wants to take the oath before God that he won't fail the Constitution. My response to that is 'God Help us.' I pray that Christians will not be deceived by his guile." - Robert Dornan

Words from a lunatic? How does he know these things? Was he there?

Rev. Lou Sheldon, who is head of the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), also has a quote. BTW, the TVC is on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Watch List as a hate group against Gays and Lesbians in particular.
Here is what he was saying they were doing back in Election 1992:

"We are contacting thousands of ministers across America and challenging them concerning this against the Church?(emphasis mine) and the Kingdom of God. The shepherds must warn the sheep not to vote for the wolf, Bill Clinton."

Who is talking about when he uses the word "Church" in an upper case letter? Certainly not the Catholic Church. The "Body" such as all Believers in Christ? The "Body" is certainly not a monolithic group taking orders in lock step from such two-bit Führer.

Operation Rescue, as we now know, is a radical right-wing fringe group encouraging their followers to assassinate doctors who perform that dreadful, horrible, repulsive proceedure called abortion. The pro-life movement has been set back 30 years as a result of deeds, words, and actions brought upon by the organization. Rev. Keith Tucci makes this quote over candidate Bill Clinton.

"The most wicked men in history have hidden behind superficial Christianity. Bill Clinton fits the mold. Only superficial Christians would vote for him. We are calling pastors to tell their congregations that Bill Clinton is a mocker of God, and therefore undeserving of any person's vote."

He calls for all of these churches to risk losing their 501(c)3 tax-exempt status to tell people how they should vote, put fear into people about the former governor of Arkansas. "Superficial Christians" were to be dealt with and sent to be hung at the gallows.

There are other quotes, but are from representatives who are less known. These are George Grant (not to be confused with Bob), Rev. Paul Schenck, Joseph Scheidler, Rev. Rod Aguillard, and Fr. Louis Marx, all condemning Clinton as the man from Hell, instead of Hope.

But, as it turns out, Bill Clinton turned to be a good president. America still has freedom of religion and the country is still here today. Those who criticized Clinton in the past and who criticize Pres. Obama now are the ones destroy this country. The Taliban, al-Qaida, and bin Laden are the ones I worry a lot less about than what I am witnessing from watching Fox News, from watching obstructionist Republicans on MSNBC, listening to certain individuals who talk politics which is tearing this country up and the concern I have on growing number of hate groups and domesitc terrorists breathing among us.

Two things that may actually happen

One: I believe Judge Sonia Sotomayor will be confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate. I believe she will be fair and impartial and she is well-qualified.

Two: We will have a public option in health care. The average American, according to today's program, The Ed Show with Ed Schultz, the tax will only affect the top 1.2% of Americans. In other words, the very, very rich, especially Hollywood stars and Ed, I don't care if they are taxed. Not at all.

I do not have much on the plate today. I have had a long day at work. I looked over some old notebooks and I am amazed over how I have grown. I used to be one of those radicals that I criticize about today. Things were going on back in those days I really had no control. I took courses at a community college I really didn't need to take. I wasted a lot of time and effort. But, looking back, I did receive some more extra college credits to the 120 hours of credits I already had and I was already a college graduate. It was desperation time way back in the day in the year 1992. There were massive layoffs at work and like now, we were in a recession back then until after Bill Clinton got elected president. BTW, I have some right-wing material I saved from those wretched days of old. It is an article entitled, "Why it is a sin to vote for Bill Clinton?" Yes, boys and girls, ol' Bubba himself was getting the shaft from these bozos back then like they do now with Pres. Obama. But, they thought they can get Clinton over sexual affairs with other women. In other words, they were giving him "the Monkey business," the name of the boat Gary Hart rode on with his mistress. But, they could not. And as I recall, he turned out to be a great president. I always had a job and I never had to return to school during those years.

Wisdom from Hafiz of Shiraz (AS)

"Do not worry about your affair;
The One Who is looking after your
affair is already busily doing so;
Worry adds nothing to your affair but worry."

Some Wisdom from Rumi

"All your suffering comes from desiring things that cannot be had. Stop desiring and you won't suffer."

What did we learn from Sarah Palin?

That she can't take the good with the bad.

That she plays the victim and blames the media for it. BTW, she does have some sympathizers who can't see the forest for the trees and who believes she is a victim!

That now she is quitting the governorship at the end of this month, she has no visible political future as far as I can see. But, as I mentioned in my last post, this is something we may need to look out for. Something may come up later.

And the GOP stands for "Winners quit, losers win." Black is white. Freedom is slavery. Slavery is freedom. And so on it goes.

BTW, Happy 4th, Everyone!

Palin Out of Politics!

I have seen the brief video reported by Andrea Mitchell about this latest development. Palin plans not to run for re-election for governor of Alaska. I think this is a trick. I don't believe this will the last we will hear from her. It is said that she will not run for president in '12. I think she will. Why is she wasting her time traveling to the lower 48 as much as she had since Nov. 2008? I don't buy the fact that she is out. Democrats, watch this real closely. She's out, but she's not!

NephilimFree's YouTube Hypocrisy on Astronomy

This video is a strong response to a Creationist's wrongheaded research on how the planets function in the solar system by J.R. Chadwick.
