God fails Tim Tebow

Tom Brady leads Patriots' 45-10 rout of Broncos and Tim Tebow in NFL playoffs. Maybe God will deliver to Tim next year? ..and then again, maybe not.   God was not on 'our' side after all.

Holmes Sweet Holmes

For NMania1: Thanks for the Voice And for Bob Holmes: I love you Bob, I swear. But you deserve this. Don't feel too sad--I deserve much worse. Way back in May of this year, I promised this to a guy who "sold" me a free newspaper in Denver for a $1 suggested donation. He said he was a writer for the same paper, which addresses issues surrounding homelessness in the same city. He was interested in the state of those affairs in Colorado Springs, where I live, and, given that I've been in the free food biz for 26 years, and that I have, in fact been homeless myself, I had to think I was in a unique position to afford some perspective. I also posted an, (untitled ), bit on the same topic clear back on 12 April of 2010, wherein I promised a follow-up. Things have worked around to a moment where changes have taken place in both the homeless community of our town and in my schedule that render ripe the moment. A year and a half ago, I described a little of the circus-like scene in our town surrounding the homeless campers. Here' a bit more flesh, spiced with perhaps a bit more vinegar. Don't get all touchy, now. Colorado Springs has always been pretty friendly to street-runners, at least since 1984 when I got here. I got to know my way around when I hit town as a 20 year old apprentice electician and found work for the--ahem--generous wage of $6.00 an hour. Within a year, I had fallen in with some folks at Calvary Chapel downtown in the same building occupied by our town's token "liberal" free paper now. We gave away sandwiches and such, among some other, more ideologically driven activities. I've been in on this little pastime of mine in one capacity or another ever since, from various angles, and with variable motivation. (Spiritual vagaries aside, nothing is ever about just one thing). What I mean to point out is that I have been around long enough to have a little feel for the pulse of the thing, nothing more. When I'd written about all this earlier in the orphaned posting noted above I mentioned some stuff I'll not mention again, since you can go to that one to see, easily enough: http://hipgnosis21.blogspot.com/2010/04/so-colorado-springs-is-unusual-place-it.html . This follow up addresses the biggie. That's right IT HASN'T WORKED. I'm no prophet. God has yet to send me any memos. All I did earlier was interpret the writing on the wall that was there for anyone to see, in big scrawling, blocky letters. I think anyone looking could read them clearly enough, including Bob Holmes, if he hadn't been in his customary, red-faced, squinty-eyed, self-imposed insensate condition. That doesn't count for an honest mistake, Bob! Now, here's a little secret--sshhh! The camps are back. I can't speak for the general level of brain power amongst drunken, whacked out homeless guys, but even the blankest screen among my favorite crowd has developed an

If “Security Firm” HBGary knows “high command” of Anonymous…

Why then weren't they contracted by the U.S. Dept of (in)Justice to find the sender of the email on the White House LAN, who gave Pooter Libby the information to help the BushTards punish Valerie Plame Wilson for not backing up their LIES about WMDs? Wouldn't the Capital Murders of 7000+ U.S. soldiers committed by the CheneyBush Kartel stir patriotic interest on the part of ANY of them? One of the Bush Lies was that they HAD initiated a thorough investigation into the Plame leak, but couldn't find anything. Yet Disney and other entertainment outlets can find not only the ORIGIN of a file transfer, but also the computer receiving the data, or so they claim on all of the billions of IP addresses on the Internet, but they can't find one person sending an email from a specific computer, at a specific time, from the White House which has a camera trained on every door, especially in a time of "heightened security"? On an extremely limited Local Area Network. Since WHEN? Isn't HBGary one of the firms contracted by not only the Dept of (in)Justice but also Homeland (in)Security and the Department of Remote Controlled Assassinations "Defense"? Why do I suspect that the alleged hack attack on their website by "anonymous" is a Marinus van der Lubbe type of setup to convict without trial the persons HBGary and their whoremasters at DoJ and DoD had already targeted? This is sick. On a day when the British are considering taking the first steps toward an Extraordinary Rendition to Guantanamo Torture Center of Wikileaks founder Assange, and BBC is reporting the "hack" against HBGary as though it's an established fact, Beating the ol' War Drum against Freedom, once more...

Death of a Chaplain.

First, it should be noted that Doctors, Psychiatrists and Chaplains are, like everybody else in the services, Combatants under the Geneva Conventions. Their orders are to keep the soldiers physically and mentally and "morally" able to follow their orders, which are to Kill Other Human Beings. That's the whole purpose of a Military Organization. Although sometimes, if the Other Human Beings grovel enough to them (like Karzhai and al Maliki do) they'll be allowed to live, just as slaves. So when a "Mountain Post" Chaplain, Baptist Minister, got blown away in VietRaqiStan early last month, and the local news kept up the steady patter about how he volunteered for "duty" after the 9/11 Bush-ordered Mass Murder, to spread the word of Jesus. Only, Jesus never told anybody to Kill anybody. So Chaplains have to make shit up in order to justify what they're ordered to do, keep the Soldiers and Airmen and Marines and Sailors from feelings of guilt and remorse over Killing Other Human Beings. Preachers, religious leaders, and other propagandists for the Enemy-du-Jour are frequently targeted under legal codes naming them as accomplices. Under the Bush Doctrine, which Obama never repealed, anybody who "gives aid and comfort" even by failing to enthusiastically support Killing Other Human Beings could be determined by a Homeland Security or Military or even Mercenary Contractor Assassination Squad to be an Enemy Combatant. Without, of course, trial, charges, any kind of Rule of Law stuff. These are the same kinds of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity for which first Nazis convicted at Nurnberg and many Iraqi officials were executed. But because the U.S. Chaplains are Americans and for the most part Christian (there are also Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Native American Church, Wiccan etc Chaplains, so it's almost an equal opportunity to sell the souls of your congregation deal), well, you do the math. But, really, what exactly differentiates a Christian Chaplain from any other propagandist? In Christian, Judaic and Muslim laws one of God's Top Ten List is "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain". I don't know the details on Sikh or Hindu or Buddhist or whoever else, completely out of range of my experience. I'm pretty sure they've got laws against blasphemy and killing as well. Fact is, the Chaplain in question wasn't, under the definitions he was hired and commanded to propagate and reinforce, "murdered". But that's a technicality. He might have embraced it, in fact there's no way to be a Military (or Paramilitary, like the Police) Chaplain and say anything at all contrary to what you're ordered to say. Not ordered by God to say it, but by the Empire. That brings up another issue. The Chaplains are also commanded (and could conceivably get the death penalty under a charge of Mutiny) to tell their Congregants that GOD, Himself, tells them they must obey every order of the Emperor. The good Chaplain might have accepted these precepts, and sold them wholesale to his flock, (Pastor

The Myth of The Man Barack Jesus Obama

'Instead we hold our breath in awe of a capable man who will surprise us with his resourcefulness.' No we don't, Eric.   In this statement that you made, you are trying to reaffirm here what I would call 'The Myth of The Man', a myth that is almost Christian religious in its origins and outlook. Barack Obama and Jesus Christ are two myths of omnipotent men that simply beg out for challenge to the myth, not affirmation of them. In the reincarnated, Barack Obama version of The Myth of The Man, Obama is expected to act God-like just like Jesus,'Son of God', was once expected to perform miracles. These miracles include rising from the dead, curing the dead, walking on water, and stopping The Empire's Wars against the actual interests of The Corporate Empire that just put him into its highest office! We are told, as Eric postulates in his comment, to be expecting surprises from this 'resourceful' SuperMan, who is godlike in his perfection, expected to rise up from his death-like corporate government bureaucratic surroundings, and expected to perform miracles for the common folk who he has come to rescue from the sins of Power! The current Myth of The Man depends on all of us to express FAITH, just like over at New Life Church much the same also is asked of Followers. We are asked to suspend judgement by Church Ladies, too. And our very own Reverend MC Thomas is out there shouting that Satan has now been cast out from The Temple of Power! That Fascist Satan is gone he screams! Burn his dead body! What does all this FAITH, HOPE, sense of Being God's Messengers in HISTORIC moments imply about the consistency of the on focus message of 'Not My Tribe'? That there is Myth of Middle Ground'? All this Hoopla for Jesus... no I meant Barack..... shown here, demonstrates religion to me. Political Religiosity, but religious fervor none the less. Hold the snakes in hand and pray for Obama? OUCH!!!!! You are going to get bit!

Republican rout is now in the making- The Republican Swan Song by Conjunto God is Dead

Obama is way out in the lead and pulling away from McCain fast! See RealClearPolitics for summary of multiple polls that show this. Saying this in no way implies that the Republicans will be routed out of the Deep South and Sunbelt/ Farm belt rural areas of the country. Take another look at RealClear's electoral map of the race McCain is now out of the running in Pennsylvania and without that state, even winning in all the battleground states still would not be enough to put him over the top. With the economy crashing, his support will be slipping further in places like Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Indiana, and Missouri, all of which are places he absolutely has to win. People blame the Republicans much more than they do the Democrats for the economic mess. I find that to be a rather doubtful conclusion on their part, but still... it will work against McCain and will work to keep in check temporarily the racism of many so-called White 'Independents'. Time is running out to initiate a dirty trick October Surprise by the Bush-Cheney gang. They, it turns out, are actually the victims of the October Surprise this election. The 2008 October Surprise is the world wide Economic Depression just now getting under way. It seems that the economic fall just could not hold itself back until after the American elections. God just was not on the Republican side this time around. Satan was... And now for some music for and from the losers here... The Republican Song Democrats and Liberals, shame on you, don't punish us all just to please a few, Your holdin people back while we're pickin up the slack, and that's why we can't vote for a Democrat. Oh no, a no, no, no, no, no, no... Oh no, a no, no, no, no, no, nooo... Yeah, your holding people back, while we're pickin up the tax, Oh no, no please don't vote for a Democrat. Now we're trying to win a war and wipe out the terrorists, We're not fightin for oil we got plenty if we drill it. But the liberals and the media are spreading their lies, Get the hell out of our way and let our soldiers fight. Please Don't Vote for a Democrat! Pretty stupid song, ay? But funny as Hell! Kind of a 'Folky going to Turkey' sort of update on that ancient Merle Haggard hit.

A snapshot of Earth evolved

The universe has so many interesting niches, and one of the most recent niches to be discovered by man is underground in Illinois, of all places. Ancient trees recorded in mines Two other famous petrified forests can be found in Arizona and the Greek island of Lesbo but they are not located underground and the trees are not as old. The Dakotas have a lot of petrified forest areas, too, including the Petrified Wood Park of Lemmon, South Dakota. No need to lose your mind going to Kentucky to visit The Creationist Museum there to discover God's supposed work. Unless, of course, you are a fan of Christian Fiction?
