What IS on my mind? Finding quotations from many different people. Appreciative because I am able to see them. If I think the quote is very pertinent and we can learn from it, I share it because I believe we all need to learn.
When I share these quotes, at times I get some comment about the person and something the person did which was wrong. Here we go again. Let us ignore the quote because it comes from an imperfect human being who did one thing wrong? The society fixated on sin and guilt of people, not on the IDEAS generated by people.
For example. Hemingway speaks about what is indicated with people feeling superior over others and what we need to consider. I have seen a documentary about Hemingway and realize there are some things which that character was not so nice. But there were many things in his life and literature he wrote which were good. Why should I fixate on the bad?
In the more contemporary world, we have former President Bill Clinton. We know about this woman named Monica Lewinsky. Not a pretty picture for Bill nor for Hillary. I know many gay men who fixated on Bill Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell.” They were so fixated on this that they sat out the election of 2000 when Vice President Al Gore ran. Perhaps there are not many gay people to impact an election. But with that election, between a third party candidate, Ralph Nader (with more issues in agreement with Al Gore) and the population of gay men who sat out the election, that tiny difference gave the election to George W. Bush. (Note: there is evidence that Bush never actually won Florida, but Scalia the dumb ass on the SCOTUS, did the bidding of the Bush family and pushed forward the election of Bush, the man who never won the popular vote nationwide). So, that buries everything good that Bill Clinton did. Literally buries the good things.
One good thing Clinton did was to work out an arrangement with the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to give tax credits to the Middle Class. BTW. Those were tax credits Trump decimated, in favor of corporate welfare and loopholes in the tax code which favored his wealthy cronies.
The result of the Clinton-Gingrich tax credits? A balanced Federal budget and no budget deficit. This balanced budget was passed to George W. Bush who within a short time, turned it back to a deficit once again. How many times do I hear the Democrats being blamed for the Federal deficit? But if Fox can tell a lie over and over again, as with Goebbels in Hitler’s Germany, they make this out to be the truth when it is NOT the truth.
Furthermore, President Obama was beginning to reduce the Federal deficit. Then to see asshole Truumpty Dumpty give the credits to the wealthy and the deficit went up again. There is evidence that President Biden, whom self-righteous assholes call “Sloppy Joe,” has been successful, once again, in reducing the Federal deficit. Self-righteous assholes supporting Trumpty Dumpty have overtaken the House and telling the world that Democrats are at fault. Liars, liars, pants on fire. All because these self-righteous bastard SOBs find ONE THING which Democrats like the Clintons, Obama (i.e., because he is black and not pleasing to asshole self-righteous white supremacists from Dixie and other places), Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris did wrong and dwell on that one thing, burying the good things which they did, with LIES and SLANDER.
I saw the same s*** in the 2012 election from people I knew who were such damn self-righteous bastards, they blamed President Obama for a deficit which had been improving and treated Romney like he was a knight in shining armour to come save the day. Ted Cruz, too, a big fat liar who did the same and then later abandoned his fellow citizens when the power grid failed in a storm.
These people, plus others, within the leadership and the ranks of the Republican Party are nothing but repugnant reptiles. And they get money and lousy asshole Tucker Carlson to cover their asses.
Perhaps I need to apologize because I am not perfect? I am quite certain there is something I may have done in my life in which I was not perfect and did not live up to the GUIDELINES provided to us by Jesus Christ. BEING gay is NOT a guideline from Christ as being a sin, either. God made me, in spite of what ever hormones are in my body which have impacted me. (BTW. I am not NORMAL, so at a younger age, the idea was to beef up my testosterone; I did not live up to the levels defined for males, so the idea was to make me “normal,” right? Men get into old age and find they are lacking testosterone; what I am saying about me is that I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LACK OF TESTOSTERONE AT A YOUNG AGE; and to clarify to the idiots out there, but not all gay men are gay because of this reason, either; so listen, consider, think, and work out conclusions based on seeking wisdom, not certainty – otherwise, shut your damn mouths).
OK. So I am not “normal.” I am not perfect. One thing is for certain, I NEVER could have done what Bill Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky. But. I am a freak, don’t you know? A freak who has seen the handwriting on the wall, years ago under Reagan s*** regime, just as Daniel in the Bible saw the handwriting on the wall and was treated with s*** because “he is being negative.”
And Jesus Christ spoke out against worshipers of money and the hypocrites. It had nothing to do whether they were Jews or Gentiles. The common thread was his ANGER – WITHOUT GUNS – against money lovers who are the basis of evil. Pete Buttigieg and his being gay is not a sin. But Donald Trump and many others have gone against the basic principle of Jesus Christ – love of neighbor – having fellow feeling. There is evidence that Trump broke how many of the 10 Commandments? Did I hear 9 of the 10? You follow the model of Jesus Christ with love (agape) of neighbor, and you are less likely to break ANY of the 10 Commandments. And that was the intent of the message of the WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH (Gospel of John, chapter 1). Trumpty Dumpty manipulates things so he gets self-righteous ones who call themselves Christians to go along. Such self-righteous ones Christians? More like the evil of the Anti-Christ. Example one. Tucker Carlson. There are many others who are so stupid they go along and are convinced that, due to some imperfection, Democrats are the evil ones, manipulating the crowd, as was the case of the Jewish leaders of the first century, to go against the good things which have been accomplished by Democrats, including President Joe Biden, House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (who, had there not been the prevalence of such lying backed up by Tucker Carlson and other evil journalists in the media, would STILL be the House speaker), Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Stacey Abrams, and yes, Hochul and Andrew Cuomo of New York. Many other good people who are imperfect people but the crowd gets fixated on the wrong things so as to tarnish the images of such good people.
If you are self-righteous and attend a Christian church and don’t like what I say, then leave the church if it is so bad. Because you are HYPOCRITES like the ones whom Jesus Christ spoke out against. Self-righteous money-lovers you are. And when you leave a TRUE Christian church, then don’t let the door hit you in the ass as you leave. Might bruise one cheek. So turn the other one and see if the door bruises you on the other cheek. Oh, how special it is! Isn’t that special? 🙂
Live long and prosper. 🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐
