How Trump Crossed The Pontius Pilate Line

I am not of the opinion that Mr. Donald Trump is a lonewolf political outsider. Mr. Trump has either bought or borrowed some of the best right wing talking heads that money and power can purchase.

In a country divided by the FOX/ Limbaugh propaganda hate machine  ( come on, even you have to admit that the country is divided exactly between the 'You Deciders' and the 'Lame Main Streamers'), which I like to refer to as the : Pontius Pilate line.

The truth? What is the truth?

Granted, I myself, at first, was quite befuddled why the Bible would allow Pilate to imply that the truth could be politically manipulated just after Jesus vowed to be the truth.

It seemed such a contradiction. If Jesus was the truth how could He be anything but?

And then it hit me. It wasn't exactly reading between the lines. It wasn't deciphering hidden messages. It was rock bottom.

The truth of Pontius Pilate was that of deception. Any junkie would know that. 'I can handle just one more drink.' 'I'll repay Grandma just as soon as I get back on my feet.' 'I'm just saying this little lie to save their feelings.' 'I can quit at any time.'

What is the truth? Whatever you want it to be.

But everybody that has hit rock bottom knows the deeper truth that Jesus was talking about. The truth that if you keep bullshitting yourself, you are going to die.

But that is only half the trick. This truth brings clarity. When lies and deception are dissolved away, to paraphrase the Bible  there are three things that remain: hope, faith & love.

For someone that has none, it can be argued that there is nothing better than hope. Hope against hope. If you don't believe you can make it, man, hoping you can make it to  the next moment can be a life saver.

Surviving enough of these hopeful moments can lead to something beyond hope. Faith. I've survived this before, I have faith that I can do it again.

I'll leave it up to you to discover how this links up to love. Suffice it to say, that believing in a higher power than yourself can ultimately expose the higher truth.

Which brings us back to the Pontius Pilate line. The way I see it the addict in us all wants to buy the bullshit that makes us comfortable. At this point we have to ask if the dealer is our friend? The way I see it while the dealer does seem the make us feel good, in reality he's cutting the product with junk and poison.

What we think is comforting us is in in reality poisoning us.

God damn the pusher man.

Now, let me make this plain as day. I am talking not about the lower echelon pusher. I am talking about the kingpin... the creme La Creme: FOX News and it's second, Rush Limbaugh.

God damn the pusher man.

FOX News is the god damn kingpin. It's Tv ratings nearly double it's nearest competitor, and its radio network has no competition. And especially powerful in their main demographics, Which is far as I can see in my limited capacity that demographic skews to a younger audience.

And they are hooked on this junk. This stuff has been sliced clean. The truth? What is the truth? Do the junkies know? Do they even care?

Most junkies don't.

Let's take a jab at a story of a atypical heroin addict.How does this junkie get started on the down hill journey?

Either through bad luck or bad life choices our victim gets addicted to oxycodone, perhaps even overmedicated enough to need the medicine after the medicine was actually no longer needed.

And then it is cut off.

Some people say that we are all only three bad choices away from ruin and our friend here has just struck out. To find his supposed comfort zone bad luck turns to criminal intent and bingo, we have a junkie.

While not a perfect analogy for the FOX News junkie, as with any user the fix becomes more important than the quality of the high, the bum-Rush ,the FOX fix. Any lie is accepted as an excuse to partake.

Complete 180° turns in opinion are acceptable...yea ol' bait and switch...every thing against those they preach against all the time is the norm. Dissenters are marginalized. This maybe ok when you are just hitting the bottom dweller, but when the junk starts moving up the food chain, larger problems occur.

When the user relies strictly on the dealer, anything the man sells the addict starts buying. Those that oppose any ideas other than the pusher's are cut out. 30 year congressmen that have the audacity to agree with the opponent is cut off of their stash. Thanks to their ever expanding territory, gerrymandering expands the cartels power. Funding is cut off, and Congress gains a T-party stooge guaranteed to win the primary, thus an easy victory in the firmly controlled general election.

 Power is solidified and only the cream of the crop have true power. Only the upper 0.1% have true say. America be damned / god damn the pusher man.

And Pontius Pilate has his day.And instead of a democracy, we have an oligarchy...and the complacency junkies shout out prayers-worshiping their fix masters all the way up the food chain no matter how bad things get.

Suddenly, as often happens with Pontius Pilate truth,when the lie becomes the truth, things start going south. In the search for rock bottom things get mucked up in the stirred up mud.

The higher truth becomes the biggest liar. Conditions become ripe for the king of lies.

Hello...Donald Trump.

Buyers keep selling because without their products main customers, the powers that be would start losing all, and slowly realize that they have to get in line or lose everything.

This is the Republican party right now. Sinking slowly, and now power junkies themselves heading willingly towards rock bottom.

How do I know this? Because Donald Trump does not and will not play their game. He is selling a better product, and the people are buying.

There is a new kingpin in town & they all know.

Perhaps, I am wrong and Mr. Trump will surprise us all and cut the junkies and their pusher masters off at the tit and bring sobriety back to the land.

But the only way I see him doing that is by sinking America to to the absolute rock bottom. All signs seem to point that way. His opposition has already been gathering into the fold.Not thinking about tomorrow, not even of today, but only the next fix.

I don't know, maybe this the only way that America is now ever going to be able to cross over the Pontius Pilate line onto the real truth, the real light, the true way of which Jesus spoke.

I hope and pray that it is not.

As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord.

Keeping Up With The Frog

Frog Applause by Teresa Burritt is still one of the best comics out there. Here's a current example: 


Frog Applause

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

When Trump came for the Muslims,
I did not speak out;
As I was not a Muslim.

When Trump locked up the Mexicans,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Mexican

When Trump came for the press
I did not speak out;
As I did not work for the press.

When Trump came for the non Christians,
I did not speak out;
As I was not a non Christian.

When Trump came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Google Me This Batman...Is Hillary Getting Partial Treatment From Google?

This post...claiming that they are not accusing anyone of any crime, is doing just that. They are accusing Hillary Clinton of crimes because Google- they say- is manipulating its search engine in Hillary's favor.
Here is my question...are false accusations and downright misleading propaganda ( numerous committees have already vindicated Mrs. Clinton of lying and of the slanderous accusations of wrongdoing on both Benghazi and her personal e-mail ) against a presidential candidate supposed to hold the same weight in a browser search engine as stories and posts based on legitimate news stories?
Is propaganda's(whose sole purpose is to destroy an honorable reputation) value the same as purposeful journalism, or is its value more akin to a paid advertisement (whose sole purpose is to try to sell you something whether you want it or not)?
If it is the former, then Google has to deal with these stories as fitting to its work model, just like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and their ilk have their duty to report fair and balanced,and non-judgmentally as they claim.
But, if it is the latter, if the propaganda of destroying the Hillary campaign through various means falls more under the supposed purpose of advertisement, then Google is totally within their rights not to give these sites and postings anything unless they have agreed beforehand to the purchase of said spots.
For Google to intentionally allow propaganda (ie false and / or misleading) sites the preferred top spot access in something as big and possibly world changing as the United States presidential race, it could be seen as an attempt to influence the outcome of the race via manipulation.
Surely, the party that believes in the free market will stand with Google on this issue. No press is bad press, but advertisements are gonna cost ya.
Fair and balanced...you decide.

An Open Letter To The Cleveland Cavaliers:


Judging by Facebook, most totally in Cav fans have already given up any hope that you guys have any chance at winning the NBA championship.And why shouldn't they...they're Cleveland fans right?
Wrong.
We're Cleveland fans. We have The Catch, The Drive, The Fumble,the Shot, the Mistake on the Lake. Reality has made us seen things differently. We are forced to believe the truth: 2nd place is not the first loser: Giving up is losing.
The 1980's Cleveland Browns may have never won a Championship, but they were by far the most exciting team in football.
That is why us Cleveland fans lay claim to some of the best fans in professional sports. Championships alone do not make greatness.
Believing beyond hope. Fighting the greatest odds. Nevering saying die.These are life held values of fans of Cleveland sports
.
When we chant ,'Wait 'til next year!' It is not just a pacifying slogan, it is us fans wiping the blood from the corners of our mouth, getting back up, fist raised, ready for the next round.
Because we fight not only windmills, but dragons. We don't care what monster comes before us. We don't care the odds. We're going to make you earn it.
Sure,some franchises take advantage of this firm belief in never giving up (I'm talking to you Cleveland Browns ), but we don't care.
We're all in.
So, you go in there tonight, our Cleveland Cavaliers, and give it your 110%. You're from Cleveland. They may call us long suffering, but we know with no pain, there is gain. We never give in or give up.
Go Cavs!

The Cleveland Browns vs. The G.O.P.

When Republicans talk about how 'liberal' they used to be back in the time of Lincoln I am reminded of the Cleveland Browns.
Sure, there was a time when The Cleveland Browns were the best team in professional football. They were in 10 straight championship games-winning seven of them !
Today's Browns are the exact opposite of those Browns.It's the same with today's Republicans. Everything the Lincoln era Republicans stood for is opposed by today's GOP.

Building A Student Loan Solution

I remember a long time ago when The Akron Beacon Journal did a multi~issue series on the graft and corporate corruption involving U.S. military spending. If I remember correctly, the corruption was so rampant, that even if a corporation was caught blatantly stealing or making subpar / unsafe parts, their contracts stated that all of their fines would be paid for by the government.

Why was I not surprised?

Today, because of the actions of a relatively few, Donald Trump wants to keep not just all Mexicans outside of the United States, but all Central and South American refugees as well.

These two seemingly random actions have giving me a third quite imaginative idea myself.

The next time the too big to fail banks fail, instead of leveling relatively small fines per dollar robbed, cheated or borrowed,and then having the said paid fines going into the Indiana Jones style vault never to be seen or heard from again, I suggest, we take these fines to erase student loans.

Why not? Who knows where these money thieves' penalty money really goes.If the banks snuggle up to the government like the war machine does, how do we even know that it is they that even pay the penalty? Maybe, they have terms where the government does.

Our government of the people, by the people,for the people should know and benefit from the illegal theft of their money and property. It should not go back anonymously into the very coffers that they may have never left from in the first place.

Mob like extortion rates on college loans is not just an outrage put upon U.S. citizens,but is a shining symbol of the political and corporate melding that has put profit before citizen representation and services that our government is supposed to be supplying to us.

When congress spends up to 60% of their time raising money, and the rest of the time obstructing the very government that they were voted in to office to support, I have very little faith that the billions of dollars in banking fines will ever see their way into actually benefiting the citizens that were robbed in the first place.

But, I will call out for justice, anyway. When the too big to fails are fined, use the money to erase all of the student loan shenanigans. We want to build a wall to stop a relatively few bad apples. We should destroy quasi legal student loans via the corrupt banking majority.

How To Make America Great Again: Unions




If you want to make America great again,create more union jobs.These jobs are usually higher paying jobs.They protect not just the slackers,but all of their workers. You usually get health care & other benefits.Workers have rights.Workers work in safer working conditions.Because it is a union,you won't see any undocumented illegal aliens working in the shop.Union members get paid vacations,sick time and other sorts of leave.And, the company, because of these benefits, can hire the best of the best, making their product better and more efficiently with less turn over. These are what are called :GOOD JOBS ! They are good for everyone involved, especially the companies that have union labor ! So,why aren't there many of these GOOD JOBS out there? Because the top brass will only make 250 times more than their average employee ,instead of their normal 300 times or more !!! When companies can afford to hire hundreds of more employees and not affect the cost of the product,or the bottom line and only minimally affect the amount of profit the big bosses rake in, it is not the labor that makes the company's product cost prohibitive.IT IS JUST THE EXCUSE NOT TO CREATE GOOD JOBS! America can not be great until the trickle down theory raises up all the boats like the politicians claims it always will do. It's time for the BS'ers to get off the pot and do what they are always preaching to the masses that they are going to do: CREATE GOOD JOBS, NOW !!! Create Union jobs ! Make America great,again !

HOW TO BE A G.O.P. CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR OFFICE IN DAYTON

Basing my assumptions solely on the advertisements that I have seen only on the Dayton,Ohio area television stations, here are ten ways that I have discovered that the local Republican candidates sell themselves to their voting public:


1: ( and foremost ) You must make facial expressions like Zoolander.

2: The conservative candidate must show at least one picture of themselves shooting an automatic weapon or a shotgun.

3: Mention that you will repeal Obama~care ( because if  the first 60 tries haven't succeeded.... ).

4: Be against the very things you are campaigning to become:

                          a)  Being a Washington insider.

                          b)  Being a career politician ( but never claiming to be only running for one or two terms ).

5: Pledge that you will stop immigration into our country by:

                           a) Building the wall.

                           b) Not allowing people from countries with terrorists in. 

6: The candidate will personally keep us all safe and personally destroy ISIS. 


7: He will make the military strong again.


8: You love America, and will return it to its basic Christian values.


9: You will claim that you started a business,but basically just re~started your Daddy's.


10: Use must use your family as props.



Granted,as a voting Democrat,these politicians aren't campaigning for my vote. But,these Washington insider wanna bee's aren't exactly proving themselves to be leaders or politicians capable of independent thought or decision making.

In fact,in my opinion, they are showing themselves to be nothing but T- party lackeys, choosing to run solely on the back of the Republican campaign committee's say so and advice. 

These ads are so cookie cutter that the only difference on where the individual candidates stand is in their Zoolander posings.

New and fresh to Washington? I just don't think so. These local yokel bubbas appear to be already bought and paid for....already voicing the do nothing rhetoric of the do nothing congress before they even get out of the primaries.

These candidates can't fix the problem, because they are the problem. Talk is cheap.Which is good..if it's already bought and paid for. 

                                                              


                                                                 TRUMP 2016 ?

THE END OF JOHN KASICH



Between defunding Planned Parenthood and this utter nonsense, Mr. Kasich has just destroyed all the good will that he has for so long been building up and working for...too bad. I guess this state of Ohio governor turned out to be nothing more than a bumbling keystone cop...and he was the Republican party's best hope of electing a civil servant instead of a self serving narcissistic anti~Uncle Sam buffoon.

WHAT A RUBE

 When did America become not only zealots for,but so pro~torture that it's use has became an acceptable rallying cry as something to do against your American political opponents? When did the home of the brave become home of the chicken shit?

Anyone that thinks this voice screaming to waterboard Hillary Clinton at this Rubio rally is anything but a plant is either being intentionally naive or not watching the Republican campaigns too closely.

The Rubio smug reply is typical of the whole rat pack of G.O.P. weasels this election.It's not that they don't have the balls to denounce such attacks,it's not that they don''t have the balls to say it with their own mouths.lt's not that their voices only second what their staff has shouted from the wilderness.lt's that their message of fear is so sickening,and that it's preached so openly and gloriously.As this is what Americans truly believe.

When did America become so soft in it's thinking that we now believe that the only way our greatest military in the world can achieve victory over our enemies is through torture?When did America become such sissies that we praise our politicians for sitting in the corner sucking their thumbs so in terror that if we don't carpet bomb our foes we incapable of winning?

How the hell did we get here?From Glenn Beck to Megyn Kelly, I blame FOX News,and other mis~leading pro G.O.P, pulpits such as Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove.

These evil, fear spreading, war mongering talking heads are as anti~Christian,anti~American as they come.All the while waving their American flags.Instead of preaching that we have nothing to fear but fear itself,these bloody pulpits are shouting that the barbarians are at the gate because we are not holy enough.Instead of preaching in trusting in God because of the righteousness of our cause:truth,justice and the American way,these faux Pharisees and Sanhedrins condemn any others that don't believe in the narrow definitions of God and country as they do.It is because we are giving these sinners welcome that we must put more boots on the ground and wipe out everyone of those not like us bastards to keep us safe.

Not realizing that if the Lord is with us,who can be against us? Forgetting that even if an army has a million soldiers and the Lord is not with them,all is already lost.

They preach God as a weapon of hate and fear,not realizing that not everyone that calls Lord ,Lord  will God recognize.

Perhaps,they should remember these words,instead: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Waterboarding Hillary is not included.

Republican Rudnest

The extreme cases of both rudeness and vulgar language amongst the Republican candidates ( and their supporters ) being seen as acceptable behavior can easily be traced back to the FOX News Network.

An example of this is how Donald Trump is now allowed to use the 'P' word because of how FOX earlier creating it's acceptability.FOX did this by not only allowing a talking head to call Mr. Obama this, but by their constant re~showing of this potatoe head calling the president the 'P' word over and over and over again.

Urban legend has it that you only have to say something three times in order for people to repeat it as the BELIEVED truth. FOX repeated it constantly all day.

The network that created Glenn Beck and Bill O' Really',makes it acceptable journalism to shout lies within lies. They feel they can say any freakin' thing they want -make a B.S. sandwich and then call it,'l hating having to be politically correct,so l am just gonna speak my own mindless ghoulash.

Even Michelle from Full House knows ,'That's just rude!'.

'Merica 2015


















Welcome to America 2015 where everyone is easily offended. Or so goes the current mood on Facebook and the rest of the American culture.


Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.Or,so says Jesus.


These are a few things that I have recently read coming from my follow Americans~said in earnest~ on the social media.


" We should take the Muslims in our country and put them in concentration camps just like we did the Japanese during WWII. "



" We should 'unAmerican' United States citizens and send them back to where they belong.Even if we have to change the Constitution in order to do so. "



" We need the next president to be an American."



" Chief Wahoo is a Cleveland tradition,and how dare American Indians be offended by our traditions. "



...and so it goes.



Yet,these same set of people that believe that people are too easily offended by 'Mericans simply voicing their devote opinions,are the very same ones that are easiest offended by opinions other than their own.



Don't like the Rebel flag? Screw you! How dare you say anything negative about a symbol of my family heritage!



Take away my guns? Why it's my Constitutional right to carry them!



Screw you,you liberal loving softy.We need to build a giant wall to keep these job stealing Mexicans out.



See how easily 'offended' these seemingly un~P.C. ers are?



Sure,it's okay for them to offend...but don't you dare offend them!



This is a classic case of dishing it out but can't take it.



Or,as it is now~a~days known: FOX News watchers.



The lower standards of the 4th estate created by FOX is being felt throughout the American media.



For instance,on the show 'Current Affair' proof was replaced by simple implication of fact when the show reported," One person even  posted on Twitter..."



There was no confirmation of source,because there was no source.The viewer simply had to take the shows word on what was reported because it was reported.




...and people are gobbling this shit up.


In a recent~ish political snafu,,Jon Kyl,was caught in a lie when he stated on the floor that Planned parenthood gave 90% of it's funding to abortions.[ The truth is 3% ].When confronted with the the facts,he simply stated," [That his speech ] was not intended to be a factual statement."


Carl Rove famously said that he did not have to convince people of his argument;he only had to plant doubt into their own.


Propaganda,ladies and gentlemen.


Or,as it is known in certain circles: FOX News.


To put it this way.Who are these anti~P.C.ers that are so easily offended by others talking anti~P.C. against them?


FOX viewers and listeners,that's who.


Putting Americans into concentration camps?Deporting Americans? Against,'  Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! ' Build a giant wall,instead to keep them out?


You only hear this contemptible language and thought being broadcast and~ventriloquist  quoted~via FOX News and it's watchers and listeners.


This anti~Christian/anti~American propaganda is being repeated so constantly that now a vast majority of 'Mericans [ notice that they can't even call themselves Americans any more ] believe this hateful shit.


Concentration camps.Arresting a certain segment of their fellow citizens.


What's next?Blond hair and blue eyes?Gas chambers?



Jon Stewart said to be vigilant,and to call out bullshit.



I'm calling out ,'BULLSHIT!".

We're In Deep Blackwater,Now.

This [ http://www.msnbc.com/…/heavily-armed-oath-keepers-patrol-fe… ] is an interesting article in the fact that these Oath Keepers claim ambiguous reasons for being in Ferguson, Missouri. One can not but think back to the secret presence of the military mercenaries,Blackwater,being in New Orleans during the Aftermath of hurricane Katrina~ claiming like American Sniper,Chris Kyle,to have used sniper rifles to kill looters.
I am not claiming that Chris Kyle was a part of the Blackwater militia (though the coincidences of he himself bragging about the very things that the arguably illegal mercenaries were supposed to be doing speaks for itself ), I am questioning just who are the Oath Takers and just who really has sent them to Ferguson?
Does the Academi ( Blackwater ) , or like brand really need to be in Ferguson? And just who has sent them? Talk about taking away American freedoms.America already has enough armed thugs without corporate highly trained ones taking over the streets.

The Republican Party:The Party of Governmental Intrusion

WARNING : GRAPHIC POLITICAL COMMENT THAT WILL OFFEND SOME PEOPLE:

 This Daily Show bit shows the absurdity of Alabama's bill HB494 that Mike Hucklebee hinted at in the last presidential debate.Let me see if I got this straight.I and my family are Alabama residents. A serial rapist gets released from jail and immediately grabs my 13 year old daughter and forcibly rapes her multiple times and beats her within inches of her life,leaving her for dead.Hospitalized from wounds which my daughter will never fully recover,she finally gets home only to find out that she is pregnant.

This law,would then-without anyone in my family's consent-assign the fetus full legal representation who will make appeal after appeal until my daughter gives birth.

Is this correct?

I believe it is.

DON'T ever tell be that the Republican party is the party for less government and less government intrusion on it's citizens! That is a downright lie.

I don't care how you feel about abortion,this is government intrusion of Grand Inquisition standards.

The Republican party:the party of less government!?!

I call BULLSHIT !!!

No Trump Card

Mr. Trump doesn't consider Sen.John McCain a war hero,because," I like people who weren’t captured.” I am interested in his way of thinking on this remark.How does having his plane shot down and then being captured not make John McCain a hero to Mr.Trump? Would The Donald only consider the senator from Arizona a hero if McCain made it safely back from a completed mission?Does this mean that Mr.Trump would not consider wounded vets who had lost limbs and/or had other terrible injuries as being classified as war heroes either?Would Mr. Trump only like people who didn't die for their country?

…pro rebel flags believers feeling the bitter sting of racial bigotry and not liking it one bit..sort of ironic,don’t ya think?…
