Another Six Months Shot To Hell

Takeover By The Wicked!

An epistle from a lawyer who works for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Alabam, one Roy Moore. And a fine legal mind this Win Johnson is. You can tell by the ratio of Biblical citations to legal citations.
Time for Public Officials to take their stand one way or the other

Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He came to save the world by His death and resurrection. That world includes you, me, the family, the civil government, all the institutions of life. He came to advance His Father's kingdom, not watch man run rampant upon the earth as if Christ had never come. As if it were the days of Noah!

Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. If the public officials decide to officially approve of the acts of the wicked, they must logically not protect the righteous from the wicked. In fact, they must become protectors of the wicked. You cannot serve two masters; you must pick – God or Satan.

The criminal laws against homosexual sodomy are for the protection of the righteous, particularly the young, the weak, the vulnerable, who need the law to teach them right from wrong when in a vulnerable state. The U.S. Supreme Court, although it claims to have done so in 2003, cannot take something that God calls a crime and declare it not a crime.

We're facing something even worse now, the civil government taking a new step and actually requiring the approval and sanctifying by the state of an evil behavior. Five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court have now opined that the States of this country and all of us must approve of so-called marriages of same sex couples.

Therefore, the civil government must now become a persecuting power; you cannot avoid it. The civil government must protect what it approves of. It must protect the advocates' employment, their business dealings, their lives in every way. Against whom? Against those who think their lifestyle is evil. That's you and me, bible-believing Christians, the Church, etc.

Public official, what will you do? Will you stand up for the law of Alabama, for the people, for the weak and vulnerable, for the law of God? Or will you capitulate? Will you become complicit in the takeover by the wicked?

"I must follow the law," you say. Law? What law? There is no law anymore, there's just opinion. One day this, one day that. When the law becomes merely the opinion of a handful of people on the courts, there is no longer any law. There is tyranny. There is chaos. But there is no law.

The young and the weak, those that are caused to stumble by courts that approve of what is evil, are those whom Jesus referred to when he said, "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." Luke 17:2. You don't want to be complicit in allowing such stumbling blocks.

Don't use the Nazi war-crimes trial defense: "My superiors (or the courts) told me to do it." You're not standing for the rule of law when you capitulate to a law that defies God and exposes people to the wicked. You're just a coward making excuses!

Or will your conscience cause you to resign? Why would you leave the people of this State, their children, your children and grandchildren to the wolves, those who would rend the society apart with their denial of what's good and evil?

Your duty is to stand against the ravages of a superior authority that would go beyond its rightful power and force upon the people something evil. That's what the founders of our country did when Parliament exceeded its powers. That's what the Puritans in civil government in the 1600's did when the King exceeded his powers.

On Judgment Day, you won't stand in front of the media, the advocates of "Equality," or even the federal courts; you'll stand before the King of Kings, the Judge and Ruler over the Kings of the Earth, Jesus Christ. His law is not subject to the vote of man, and He, as the good and loving author of that law, does not exempt any nation from it. The law's author, speaking of Himself as "the stone which the builders rejected," said, "Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." Luke 20:18.

What can you do? You have authority as an elected official. You also are sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution and Alabama Constitution. Find a way to do so. Don't acquiesce to the takeover (actually the takedown)!  Use your authority and every legal angle to oppose the tyrants! If necessary, just say, "No." It is not rebellion for you to say, "Your interpretation of the Constitution is wrong, beyond your authority, and detrimental to this nation." In fact, it's your duty. You're not opposing the rule of law, you're upholding it by saying that.
Context is a mug's game, but if you give a shit here it is.

Time Now Actually LONGER Than Rope

Attributed today's agony & sufferation to perhaps the extreme ennui that results when one pays attention to reactionary idiots repeating themselves as they have for the last 40 yrs. of their fascist Nixonian shit while repeatedly denying or blaming others for the wars, recessions, murder & all else that result from their policies & programs, perhaps the arrival of monsoon season,
perhaps waking after a mere six hrs. of disconnection to Chris Christie on live telebision shouting at clouds as if they were deaf.

Contributing factors all, but the added existential agony I was feeling was from the official entropy extension happening tonight.

On Tuesday, the world gets a ‘leap’ second.
Are we all gonna die?

Yes, you're all abso-fucking-lutely "gonna" die, just not soon enough for me & probably not as a result of the leap sec.
Five yrs. of entropy later:

Telling It Like It Is: Another Turd Drops In G.O.P. Punch Bowl

Typical Republican, drinking from the ladle of a silver bowl. She'll be sorry.
Surprised grotesque gargantua Chris Christie didn't displace all the piss punch in the Grand Old Punchbowl when he jumped in. Because he is a fat slob, & therefore weak & unable to control himself.

Every Republican candidate is a literal asshole, a revolting & contemptible jerk whose personality defects, paranoid delusions & twisted minds are clearly defined by in the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of the head shrinkers. And they all suffer from delusions of adequacy.

Tough-talking walking bullshit, every one. They'll show ISIS!! Like hell. Give this reporter five minutes alone w/ any of these feudalist theocrats & I'll rip their lying tongues from their weasel mouths in a demonstration of just how "tough" they really are. Seriously, there is not a one of these posing fairies I couldn't or wouldn't take in a fair fight.

And fuck Bruce Springsteen & his bogus pseudo-Spectorian music to hell. Give me ten mins. of music instruction w/ him, I'll break every one of his strum-you-to-dullness fingers & shove 'em down his anthem-howling throat. Insufferable hack.

Days Shorten, Temps Rise,
Humidity Becomes Intolerable ...

... so if anyone thought I was cranky previously, they were misunderestimating me.

THE EAST IS RED!!!

Saw the latter half or so of a wonderful ChiCom propaganda epic about running the Guomindang out of some part of China or another (No subtitles, all dialog in Chinese, so we had no real idea; not, however so subtle we didn't get the big picture.) Sat. night on broadcast channel 44.6. (ICN formerly IAVC or something; Google if you care.)

Vast panoramas of underpopulated battle scenes (A cast of maybe a couple of thousand, not thousands upon thousands, most of them no doubt members of the P.L.A.) many explosions & one helluva lotta smoke. (Wouldn't surprise this reporter if a whole division's allotment of smoke grenades was used.)

Didn't need to understand Chinese when Nationalist officers were shown shooting their own soldiers who turned & ran. Later a high-ranking Nationalist officer plugged a fellow officer in cold blood in his command post. Defeatism? Refusing an order? The Nationalist officers are always surrounded by guards & American equipment, while
the Commies are true men of the people who move on foot & horseback.
Seriously. There is a fucking sabers-drawn cavalry charge in the finale, as the Nationalist forces are thoroughly routed.
Other bases touched:
  • Partisans, mostly a Red Detachment of Wymyn. Their leader sacrifices herself superheroically cutting the fuses leading to boxes stenciled "TNT MADE IN USA" w/ which the Nationalists were going to destroy a dam.
  • The noble machine gunner slaughtering scores of the enemy who is himself cut down; there's always another hero to jump in & continue the slaughter. (Three times minimum, just in the part I saw.)
  • And good shootin': Virtually every Nationalist who gets plugged grabs at his chest before falling down.
THE PEOPLE UNITED SHALL NEVER BE DEFEATED!!!

ICYMI:
How do you know if that popping sound down the block is an M-80 fire cracker, a 9 mm semi-automatic or a 12-gauge shotgun? The Eastsider asked some folks who are familiar with the sounds of the season to help tell the difference.

Corporate Nippon-America (a Trans-Pacific Partnership):
On Monday, Nov. 3, 2014, a four-man team from Norse Corp., a small “threat-intelligence” firm based in Silicon Valley, arrived early for an 11:30 a.m. meeting on the studio lot of Sony Pictures Entertainment, in the Los Angeles suburb of Culver City. They were scheduled to see Sony’s top cybersecurity managers to pitch Norse’s services in defending the studio against hackers, who had been plaguing Sony for years.

After a quick security check at the front gate and then proceeding to the George Burns Building on the east side of the Sony lot, the Norse group walked straight into the unlocked first-floor offices of the information security department, marked with a small sign reading info sec. There was no receptionist or security guard to check who they were; in fact, there was no one in sight at all. The room contained cubicles with unattended computers providing access to Sony’s international data network.

The visitors found their way to a small sitting area outside the office of Jason Spaltro, Sony’s senior vice president for information security, settled in, and waited. Alone. For about 15 minutes.

“I got a little shocked,” says Tommy Stiansen, Norse’s co-founder and chief technology officer. “Their Info Sec was empty, and all their screens were logged in. Basically the janitor can walk straight into their Info Sec department.” Adds Mickey Shapiro, a veteran entertainment attorney who helped set up the meeting and was present that day: “If we were bad guys, we could have done something horrible.”
Sony & their stockholders certainly deserved it.

More from the business side of the show bidnis; currently not caring enough to find previous linkage on the subject, help yourself (as if you could possibly care more than we do).

You'd Think Gawd Could Come Up A Better Way Than Terrorist Murder To "Use" Someone, But The Prez Doesn't

What the fuck's the matter w/ the President? He's lost whatever sanity he may have had:

Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof 'didn't know he was being used by God,' says President Obama
at funeral

Is the fucking President saying that The Big Fucking Killer In The Sky deliberately killed nine possibly innocent people to get his point across? Gawd & Obama are a pair of sick bastards, aren't they?

NO, B.O! WRONG & STUPID!! STOP IT!!!

President Obama says church is
'a place where our dignity as a people is inviolate'
As opposed to our "dignity" as goats or chickens or something? And cold-blooded terrorism is dignified now? If the churches support dignity let's fill the pews w/ sleeping homeless people every night. Otherwise it's all bullshit.

Sorry, but church is for people scared of death, & for relieving adults of their money & children of their sexual innocence.

Is there a politician in this world of shit & pain who can think beyond the crudest clichés or has any connection to an unfiltered reality? What about the "bitter clingers"? B.O. forget all about them? One would wish that a lame duck President had the intestinal fortitude, commitment to truth or just something decent in him that would enable him to start telling the truth, or at least stop lying about everything.

Vaterland Security Blows It Again

The cretins in the gov't. warn us to watch for ISIS/ISIL terror next wknd., yet didn't mention the much more distinct possibility of home grown all-American racist homo-haters going nuts in the wake of recent SCOTUS decisions & Slaver Flag removals & killing anyone who isn't a member of the Council of Christian Crackers.

This reporter was half-surprised (& half-disappointed) there wasn't an attack on President Corporate Consensus-Seeker when he was in Charleston today. Maybe the crazed crackers haven't had time to get their shit together. Yet.

20 Mins. Later: Digby on why the reactionaries are unwilling to face the evils they've created.

No Angels Singing Up Above ...

Vice President Joe Biden on SCOTUS ruling: 'All marriages at their root are about love. In America, our laws now recognize that simple truth. Love wins today and we couldn't be prouder'
Love, L-U-V? Please.

SHUT UP HIPPIE! Knock off the bogus & bourgeois Romantic hearts & flowers crap you old fool. Like everything else in this world of shit & pain it's about power, control, & exercising them on everyone you possibly can. There ain't no such thing as love.
And would anyone like to wager when the first armed attack/bombing of a same-sex wedding will happen? A matter of time in this nation of violent, religiously-crazed sad sacks.

Why Isn't America Number One?

Look at this. Look at this & be outraged!!
Tunisian security official: Only 1 gunman, a young student, was responsible for hotel attack that left 28 dead - @AP
What's wrong w/ our once-exceptionally murderous nation? Just one of their lousy gunmen was able to get three times (plus one) as many humanoids as wimp-American Dyl-Ann Roof. The N.R.A. is falling down on the job; teach our children how to kill effectively, damnit!!

By the way, was this "call to violence by Islamic State extremists" a reaction to the Supreme Court's decision? And how long until the first law-abiding gay-fearing citizen w/ an arsenal shoots up a same-sex wedding?

P.S.: I am not a cynic. I just know what goes on in what passes for minds in these United Snakes. There's a killer out there right now, just waiting, maybe for that body armor he ordered w/ his mommy's credit card, maybe for a few thousand more rounds. And you could be among his next victims!

Words Of Warning To Middle-Class Sheep/Pigs Seeking "Legitimacy"
From A Corrupt & Evil Society

Marriage, like the family, is a corrupt bourgeois institution. Do not participate.
Frankly, you pathetic squares & brain-dead sheep, whatever your sexual orientation (Mine is who fucking cares about it? It's pointless & boring.) if you think you need a piece of paper from the gummint telling you w/ whom you may or may not fuck, visit in the hospital or own "property", you've already lost! The truly decent & rational thing would be to outlaw marriage & civil unions entirely. 150 yrs. after the end of the Civil War, don't allow yourselves to be enslaved to bullshit morality. Neither property nor privilege shall be honored!

You can file this one under "Whatever it is, I'm against it!!"

New Links!

Golf links, not informative or interesting links. Ha ha!
In 2015, further golf course enhancements take place in the form of creating natural waste areas that require minimum water to maintain. This is done in an effort to conserve water in the perpetually dry Los Angeles basin desert in future years.
As opposed to conserving water in past yrs.? Redundant, & barely literate. (See below.)
