I Learned Something Today

There are problems with adding the images to demonstrate the area of which I refer.  I apologize for this inconvenience.




I learned a lot about why I’m a mess today.  You see, I’m not like I once was.

My short-term memory doesn’t exist, I have a nasty temper, and my organizational skills always lacked.  Here we go.




Everything can be described in these diagrams, the first of which is provided by Carole Wade and Carol Travis Psychology 4e

What this basically means is that people like me pay attention, but forget anyway-no matter how hard we try to remember shit.

I was supposed to be at a meeting today, but I never know what day it is.  This is because of what the meningitis in this area.  My frontal lobes are fucked because of the blows to the head which I received, courtesy of wood pallets.  Remember what Dr. David Banner said to that reporter on The Incredible Hulk?

“Mr. McGhee, please don’t make me angry.  You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

The prefrontal cortex also gives you some idea of why I tend to be cruel to the cruel, but giving to the empty-by the way, don’t ever let that out.  I’ve worked hard on this nasty reputation, and I aim to keep it, fuck you very much-and twice at the early Sunday morning service.

So, when you have an employee that just doesn’t seem ‘with it’, it’s not drugs.  He or she has a problem, and that employee is protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act because this interferes with a major life activity: employment.  So, fire them, and it’s a Chapter 11, you’ll be-a-filing.

Yeah, Merry Christmas to you, too.

We may live in a dark age, but Americans still have rights.  If a paranoid and xenophobic right-wing gun nut can’t control his amygdala, then you must allow for someone with a learning disability or a traumatic brain injury the same benefit of the doubt.

Of course, the funniest part is when an employer fires someone who is a gun enthusiast with a bad amygdala for being a slow learner, but just wait when he finds out how badly his frontal lobes were destroyed or compromised.

Those are just the most interesting people, aren’t they?  It would be a shame if this society cornered them from the beginning to the point at which they have no other choice.

Now you understand my apathy as it pertains to violent crime.  Some people never got a chance.


Would I do that?  No, I have too much to live for.  It’s much more fun for me to sit back with a bag of popcorn and a bottle of Powerade so I could watch the chaos you caused due to your lack of compassion and your love of the Second Amendment.

Still 'Feel the Bern' While Donald Trump Takes It Away From You?






It’s funny when one hears the claim from those who vote for “independent” candidates say that there’s no difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.

Well, those who say that will find out how wrong they were-and I don’t want to read any complaints about what the Democrats should have done better or that Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, because that’s bullcrap on both counts.

It’s funny to watch the poor people who voted for a crooked billionaire cry about how they’re about to lose what little they have.  However, for left-leaning “independents” to whine about this calls for a good bitchslapping-the way that Butthead bitchslapped Beavis, just forehands and backhands.

I’d like to know how these young “independents” who “felt the Bern” plan to pay for college now, since Trump wants to get rid of Pell grants.  Hell, wait till they go to the beach and realize that they can’t go into the water because of the oil slicks.  I remember those days during the Reagan years when I went to Zuma Beach in Los Angeles.  There were just some days that you couldn’t go in the water because you could see the oil.

So, we now have social programs axed, another bloated military budget, and a weaker society.   You “independents” must really feel proud of yourselves for the position you’ve put yourselves in.  It’s so bad that Betsy DeVos has brought up student debt.

Still feel the Bern, kiddies?

It’s one thing for your Hippie relatives to have split the Democratic Party the way that they did by pushing for Sanders (an Independent who ran for the Democratic nomination).  They never grew up, and it’s a bigger chore dealing with them on Facebook than it is to deal with a conservative.  Why?  Because conservatives are bigots.   However, “independents” who “vote their conscience” have no excuse.

Voting your conscience is what gave you this disastrous budget, so what do you plan to do now?
Anyone who still claims there’s no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans needs a good bitchslapping with a Louisville Slugger.

Don’t tempt me.

Right-Wing Behavior Demonstrates Intellectual Inferiority To Liberals

“When the debate is ­­­­­­lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”-  Socrates
I laugh when conservatives tenaciously try to beat me in a debate.  The only problem is that they are so poorly educated they don’t know what Socrates said about those who resort to name-calling in political discourse.
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”
I really appreciate the death threats-of which I’ve had a few.  I’m not worried, however,
and for two reasons.
First, conservatives react.  They never think things through at any moment.  They just go with whatever verbiage their hot tempers govern them toward.  Second, they don’t want to embarrass their friends and family-a working class conservative has enough problems.
Working-class conservative…. that’s like military intelligence-a total contradiction in terms.
You have read previously why working-class conservatives lose it like they consistently do.  They fear everyone who isn’t like them, while a white-collared conservative knows exactly what he’s doing.
The white-collared conservative wants to keep taxes low so that there is no money for social programs (which their blue-collared workers need-especially since the blue-collars fall for the family values con-job).  White-collared conservatives want to keep wages low.  They opposed the idea of the minimum wage from its inception and they want to repeal it today.
The white-collared conservative knows how to pit people against each other.  That way, they’re not paying attention to what he does to them.   The woman’s right to choose is one of the best examples of this.
Don’t have an abortion if you disagree with the idea, but who in the Hell are you to make a nine-year-old become a mother?  If you let that thing become a human being, it’s eventually going to find out why the mother gave it up for adoption.
How would you like to know that your grandfather is also your father?
People used to tell me that the old bigoted and judgmental ways of thought have long died out.  However, Donald Trump has proven otherwise.
While racism has always been like a bad zit on the forehead, the pus-filled head is now self-evident, and we can now see that it’s still forming… and getting even bigger.
Conservatives state that they want this nation to return to its Christian roots.  However, that’s nothing but a legend.
Read the last part of the Sixth Amendment, Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli, and the original Pledge of Allegiance, which was written in 1892-by a minister named Francis Bellamy-who also happened to be a socialist, according to the Fortune  article published on September 8, 2017.
Sixties liberals are naïve and conservatives are just flat-out decimated with psychoses; among which are xenophobia, paranoia, the tendency to hoard, and simply do not have empathy.  The funny part is that they shove Jesus down our throats-a Man who had compassion.
Yes, I’m a liberal.  However, I’m not one of those who still believe in singing these stupid songs which produce little more than the result of raw meat in the digestive tract.  I don’t believe in “being the better person” so that others can see me suffer on the evening news.  All I do is prove to a conservative just how stupid he is, let him make his threat, and report it.
The funny thing about many of these religious people who claim to be college educated is that they always forget what Socrates said about slandering people.  As for me, I never do that.  What I do is merely make an implication that is based on my enemy’s previous statement-which is a significant difference.
Liberals should not pity conservatives who choose ignorance over survival.  Liberals should let the conservative drink the hemlock and make money from the photo he shot once the conservative realizes what he just did to himself.

My Mixed Feelings With Regard to Majoring in Education

Being in the Master’s program feels like the beginning of (what was for me) junior high school again.

I honestly must admit that I don’t know what I’m doing this time, but I know that I’ll catch on.  This is because the required grade point average to stay off Academic Probation is at least a 3.0-which was what I scored before I fell apart in 2016-3.17, if you want to be technical about it.

I now major in a something that I really think is crap, but I need to get employment of some kind before this really takes off-EDUCATION.

Are you cereal, man?   I still compose black metal on my Fender and my Jackson. What are you talking about? I've been a heavy metal guitar player for 32 years, okay?

Everyone knows that the American system of education sucks so bad that it swallows, too.  Who do we blame for that?

Don’t blame the teacher unions, because I now realize how hard it is to get this degree.

Blame the Republican Party.

It’s the Republican Party that wants a poorly-educated voting population so that they can continue to destroy the poor.

Look at the states the Republicans control.

Tennessee, Alabama (got lucky in that special election-and don’t deny it), Georgia, the Carolinas-poverty nearly all the way around.  Texas is one of the few exceptions, because of their oil industry.

This, of course, has been a problem for the last thirty years-ever since Reagan began to gut social programs so that he could build the war machine.  The last Republican who had any sense about this issue was Jerry Ford, because you must have a well-educated worker to maintain the best military in the world.  You also must have soldiers who are excellent with the ability to think critically on the battlefield-and that leaves the Americans out.  American soldiers are about as stupid as they come nowadays.

Haditha.

Thank you.

I know what you're thinking.  You're wonder why I'm getting myself into a profession I don't really like.  While I feel a sense of dread as I enter this area, I must do it if I want to buy a house of my own-short of becoming wildly successful at this…it can happen!  Furthermore, I can teach better than a lot of people because I'm going to show those kids that we're really on the same team. 

"Just get through the fucking thing, and you can get out of here and spend your summer with your chick rather than just waste time here.  You're going to have to do it anyway.  Why not do it once?"

In other words, I understand how they feel and why they feel the way that they do.  Hell, I still feel that way-and I'm 47!  I always knew this society was a dead baby joke because of its hypocrisy!

I feel a sense of dread as I enter this area, but I must do it if I want to buy a house of my own-short of becoming wildly successful at this…it can happen!

Okay, so I’m learning the do’s and don’ts of being a Master’s candidate.  I’ve screwed up before-and I learn from my mistakes…. unlike American voters.

You American "Liberals" Are To Blame for the Death of Net Neutrality-Especially If You.....

I’m going to tell you who is directly responsible for the death of Net neutrality earlier this week.

I’m not going to blame the Republicans on this one, because I expect this kind of behavior from them.  It’s no shock that they want to censor everything that they can to keep you in the dark like a mushroom.

Do you know whose it fault it is?

Yours.

Did you vote for Jill Stein?  She syphoned votes from Hillary Clinton.

Did you vote for Bernie Sanders?  He has long hated the Democratic Party and has been quoted to the effect.  Anyone who knows my website can just look it.

This now means we are going to have censorship on the American internet.  Suppose your child needs help with a science project.  Is there going to be any clear sign that the information will be accurate?

What about history? 

Republicans have spent years trying to rewrite the past; turning Joseph McCarthy and Ronald Reagan into heroes.

Joseph McCarthy falsified information and used psychological torture on his victims in full public view.

Ronald Reagan?  He just traded arms for hostages-which is treason, in case you’re not keeping score at home.

George W. Bush let 3,000 people get slaughtered after he was told where Bin Laden was.

Thanks to you Sanders and Steiners, we now have to deal with this-and don’t ask me what to do, because I have told you what to do for about a year now, but you still want to light candles and sing stupid songs, and make your “great” speeches.  All that is a waste of time because it gets us nowhere.

Follow me, kids.  Forget your ethics.   Forget your morality, for all in fair in whatever has to be done by any means necessary.

Fine, be slaves to Trump, and see what I care.­­­­

I'm Back

That's right, I'm back.

Starting the Master's program was a bitch and a half.   It's like being in (what was in 1983) 7th Grade of junior high school again.

I have to get used to all of these logs, and the expectations are higher-like you have to maintain a B-average-or you're on Academic Probation.

It's a little freaky, but I think I will eventually figure this out.  Hey, I've done it before, right? 

That's where I've been for the past nine days, as I have been busting my ass catching up on homework while trying to figure this new system out.

The stakes are much higher-and they have to be.  Remember, I'm supposed to be a fucking professional.

Oops!  Blew that one right there, didn't I?

I've got more blows to the head now than when I started in 2013, but I still think I can pull this off-mainly because I don't have a choice. 

Of course, I'm going to keep on writing.  This is who I am.  I'm not a professional with a tie.  I'm crappy at playing games, but I need a back up.

Teaching American History in the age of the Trump regime (especially with Net neutrality now being history) is going to be a scary thing, but I might have to do it for a while in order to get back to where I was before this seizure took me down.

Sure, I'm worried, but I still record everything-and I now have to rely on information outside of the United States even more than before, because the Trump regime is really cracking down on censorship.  I remember when my ex-wife and a former friend of mine disposed of many of my old newspapers-which went back to the 1990s.  They said they figured that it would be in history books.  However, I knew that the history books were going to begin to lie at some point-which is why I wanted to keep the newspapers in the first place.

I now find old news old the Net, copy it and put it to my One Note.

They should have listened to me, but....

And now, it's happening-just like I thought it would.  I just hope it's not going to be as bad as I think-but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Oh, in case any of you are wondering, the vote at the Federal Communications Commission was 3-2... and Independents say one of the reasons they 'vote their conscience' is because one vote supposedly doesn't make much of a difference.

Uh-huh, right.

The Religious RIght Is Trying Tod Destroy the Americans With DIsabilities Act!

So, the Republican Party has decided to move forward with gutting the Americans with Disabilities Act, a law which was signed by a Republican president in 1990.  Of course, he was trapped by a Democratic Senate which would have overridden his veto, but it was a midterm election year, and George H.W. Bush needed to look good to the American voters.

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Tennessee favors local control.  However, we always see the consequences of the same when the federal government isn’t looking over your shoulder.  Desegregation laws were challenged in the South to the point at which we had forced bussing in the 1970s.  Now with Adolf Trump in the Oval Office and both houses of Congress controlled by the Nazis, there’s a very real possibility that this law could be repealed.

This law affects me, and it affects my niece.  I have learning disabilities and need extra time.  My niece has mobility issues from cerebral palsy.  Who cares about some idiot who drove over a bomb in Iraq?  Fuck him, because he did that to himself and believed the propaganda he was fed.

Furthermore, he didn’t find a God damn thing-except for a girl in Haditha to rape.  That’s about it.

What about children who want to learn and need more time? 
What about children who have trouble with physical education because of their mobility issues?

These people are more important than some gung-ho jackball who made America look stupid in the eyes of the entire civilized world.  Let his family pay for his care and let’s get these truly disabled people (developmentally disabled and learning disabled) into the workforce so that they will become productive citizens.

Those of you who go to church and vote Republican are required by the Bible to help those with developmental disabilities.  1 John 3:17-18 is a very good example of the point. 

Just Remember what happened to the rich man who refused to help Lazarus in Christ’s parable, and you know where your eternal destiny lies if you don’t change your party affiliation.

Freedom for the Oppressed: Judge Others At Your Own Risk-Especially If You Kn...

Freedom for the Oppressed: Judge Others At Your Own Risk-Especially If You Kn...: It’s so funny how a lot of people think it’s okay to judge others. Now, you know how I am; I want to know fact from fiction before I decid...

Update on the Moral Judge

I don't know why I did it, but I decided to check on that one person who thought that judging people was a good idea.

You read my response, but it seems that someone of that caliber has something to hide when they write:

"I never said you have to judge others. But again, its natural to judge others based on what we know, because thats all we know.
I'm not saying you should instantly treat someone like shit if you barely know them, but its perfectly fine to meet someone and paint a general picture of them. Someone who seems like a dick might be not that bad, or someone who seems nice might be a complete ass.
If what I say bothers you, well sorry. Thats how I see it. If you want, you can go to my profile and judge the hell out of me. I dont mind." -IC (initials only) Now, this is someone who seems to have something to hide-just like all those Republicans in the United States who want to make a woman's right to choose illegal, yet beg their mistress to get an abortion.



https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2017-10-05/anti-abortion-congressman-tim-murphy-announces-retirement-after-pressuring-girlfriend-to-get-abortion So, my critic doubles down by stating that it's natural (another way of saying okay) to judge others based on what we know. Suppose the information is all a lie? Did you notice how rude he became in his response? These are the kind we must watch for, as they make situations for others worse. Someone like this person would think that a girl who was raped is actually a prostitute. Now, where would they get such a wacky idea? It's information based on what they know. They see a pregnant young girl and assume she's a prostitute because she's 14, pregnant, and heard some gossip. It would never occur to them that her father raped her. This is the problem with moralism and this is why we need situational moralism and situational ethics. We wouldn't need these things were it not for those like IC.

Hello, Indonesia!

I wish to thank those who found me here in Indonesia.

My name is Jim Rousch and I run this madhouse.  I specialize in advocating for oppressed people everywhere-and I don't care where you come from.

I have a degree in psychology from the University of Phoenix and I have been in American presidential campaigns as a Democrat since 1992.  Prior to that, however, I played in a heavy metal band in Los Angeles, California between 1985 and 1987.  I was political in those days, as well, as I despised Ronald Reagan, and still view him as a traitor (Iran-Contra).

My main focus is on equal rights-especially for those with developmental disabilities like autism, as I worked in that field for nearly ten years.  Even if you don't have a developmental disability and have some kind of physical ailment for which you face discrimination, I still want to help you.

Let me know if you need help and I'll tell your story.  If I can't help you, someone near you probably can.

Again, thank you.

Hello, Algeria!


I wish to say hello to my new audience in Algeria.
I am a columnist who fights for the rights of oppressed people, no matter who they are or where they come from.
I specialize in social ostracization, so please feel free to drop me a line and tell me your situation.   Someone somewhere might be able to help you if I cannot.  All I might be able to do is call attention to it.
You will have to use your real name in order to be helped out of your situation, but I do want to help in any way that I possibly can.
Again, thank you, Algeria.

Judge Others At Your Own Risk-Especially If You Know Not Their Circumstances


It’s so funny how a lot of people think it’s okay to judge others.
Now, you know how I am; I want to know fact from fiction before I decide.  Furthermore, I check my sources.  On top of that, I don’t believe we should be judging teenaged mothers, since Republicans want to end abortion rights.
Sadly, most people aren’t that bright.
Here’s an example of a beautiful online exchange I had with someone regarding the topic of the judgment of others.
Jim Rousch’s profile photo

Honestly its perfectly normal to judge others, based on the information we  have. Its only natural tbh



Jim Rousch
+I C And if the information is wrong?


Shitting is natural, too, but you don’t want to internalize that-well, maybe YOU do.  I prefer to consider the source and dispose of the shit.


That’s when people like myself grab people who judge and put them through car windshields.  If you’re a Christian, remember that Christ told you that you will be judged if you judge others.

You want to know something else that’s natural?  Tease the wolf and he’ll bite your balls off-to be honest.  You don’t know someone’s circumstances, son, so my advice to you is to hold your tongue-you might lose it if you judge the wrong person.
This person just answered my response to him, but I’m not going to bother with it.  To give a judge the time of day is like running in quicksand, and there’s simply no point to it.  They will learn what happens when they must pay a large deductible at their dentist’s office because their dentist had to perform major oral surgery on them and either had to implant partials or get him ready for dentures.
That’s what usually happens to those who judge-and that’s just on Earth.
Based on those who adhere to the religion, I don’t know how accurate the Bible is.  However, Jesus Christ allegedly warned:
Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)

7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”
Now, I’m evil, and I know that.  It’s because I’m a human who was pushed into a corner, so I have no remorse for anything I do.  However, I try not to judge others.  Why?   They might be from the same neighborhood as me.
Just listen to Motorhead’s I’m So Bad Baby, I Don’t Care, because I’ve been to Hell.  I’ve bought that farm, and I refuse to sell.
You see, that’s what happens when people are judged before the judge learns the facts.

Fools and Hypocrites


https://www.facebook.com/thefreethoughtprojectcom/videos/2041598426060414/


Fools believe, but the inquisitive make sure.  After all, that might not be beef stew you're eating.

The Millerites had faith.
Joan of Arc had faith.
The Donner Party had faith.

How well did it work for them?  Not very, I take it.

Look, people have a right to believe whatever they want.  However, when those same people enforce their beliefs on the general population, they're asking for trouble. 

Just remember that 2 Peter 3:4 is just around the bend-and that's when we'll turn the tables.

Jesus never gave the date and time, so get off of our backs and mind your own business.  We know you're just like us anyway. 

You're no different.

Conservatives Are Funny

It’s funny when conservatives make the claim that liberals are mentally ill.
The reason for that is because I’ve never known a liberal to shoot up an entire street from a rooftop in Las Vegas or hit scores of people while driving a Dodge in Charleston.
Conservatives are the ones that resist change at any cost and conservatives are double-minded in that they want to own as many firearms as possible while pushing a “holy” book into our faces.
That’s funny, because Jesus Christ reprimanded His disciples for their collective fear during a storm in which they were sure that the boat on which they were aboard would capsize and that they would all drown:
New International Version
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.”-Matthew 8:26
Among other hypocrisies, this is the kind of attitude is what destroys Christianity’s credibility.
Think about this for a moment.
If a Christian believes that God will protect his family, why is he a member of the National Rifle Association?
The reason why conservatives are more likely to be terrified is because their amygdala is larger (source:https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human-beast/201104/conservatives-big-fear-brain-study-finds).
This discovery was realized researchers at the University College London.  However, it really doesn’t matter how much information you give a conservative because he loathes academia (source: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/07/why-do-republicans-suddenly-hate-colleges-so-much/533130/).
It’s really funny by the time you get to the end of the movie, because there was once a time in which a conservative would challenge you by having you cite a source to prove your point.  The irony is that they no longer believe in peer-reviewed sources.  I mean, it’s either that, or they just don’t like hearing people ask a lot of questions in class, since conservatives tend to believe whatever they hear.
Fox.  That’s all the proof I need right there.
Furthermore, my amygdala is just fine.  I don’t fear newcomers or look around me whenever I hear a twig snap.
To conservatives who read this article, I ask you to try and rationally think this out, as the only bogeyman out there, conservatives, is the one that Fox created.  The one question left to ask is whether you believe whatever Fox tells you, or if you believe Jesus Christ.  And if you believe Jesus Christ, please explain your paranoia.

You already know that I’m conflicted about this, as I kind of see this as selling out.  However, I need a job which has union support-especially after what I went through both at Walmart and as a community trainer and respite worker for someone with autism.

One of the things I already realize is that I can’t do things the same way I did when I was a community trainer.   I can’t open the trunk of my car and show some bigot or bully that I’m not bluffing when I threaten to take his teeth out, break his knees, and bash his spine when he makes fun of someone who has a developmental disability-which was something no one in the Company ever knew that I did, otherwise I’d have been fired.  That’s kind of funny, because I found myself engaging in that very act almost every day that I went to work with the guy. 

There were always some idiots, usually white trash or white suburbanite pricks, who told me that he needed to be put away in an institution.  Tommy is the only reason I didn’t do it, as he would usually take me out of the situation before the bastard who said what he said wound up twitching on the floor in a pool of his own blood-Tommy knew that I would do it, too.  He started out completely non-verbal, but he learned how to plead me to leave by saying the word go.

I suppose one of the funnier episodes is when this white woman clutched her daughter and pulled her closer (because Tommy was black).  She became verbally abusive after I informed her that the white sheets were in Aisle-5.

Of course I said that right in front of her daughter!  Would you expect any less of me?  I mean, come on!

I defended him every day by destroying anyone who taunted him, and no one ever knew about it.  That’s kind of stupid, firing someone for defending the client by any means necessary, but I digress. 

Do I want to teach?

No, because it’s so politicized now that it’s hardly worth it.  However, it’s possible that I’m being driven in a position I don’t want to go to wait for the opportunity in my true calling-which is what I do right now…writing.

Maybe I’m supposed to do this teaching crap, not only to tell kids what really went down in recent American history (although they’re going to have to answer according to the textbook), but to teach and enforce the idea of diversity-which is a dangerous concept in the America ruled by the Trump regime.

The Second Journey-Getting My Master's Degree

I start my Master’s in Education journey in a few hours, but I’m not nervous about the next two years, because I got through the first four-which were a bitch and a half.

I mean, between the nightshifts, lack of sleep, chipping my shoulder (and who knows what the hell else working at Walmart did to my body), I figure this shouldn’t be too hard.  I’ve actually been through a hell of a lot worse.

Furthermore, a teacher is not who I truly am.  I’m a controlled anarchist who has a fascination with pyromania.  I’m Ozzy Osbourne, for crying out loud.  The only difference is that Ozzy plays the role, but I don’t.

Oh, sure, he was serious when he was a 24-year-old kid in Black Sabbath, but he changed into a performer.  As for me, I haven’t changed.  I’m still the same dark spirited ghoul that I was thirty years ago, I’ve become darker as time has progressed, and that’s because of what I’ve seen and the times in which we currently live.

I’m not particularly thrilled with who’ve I’ve become.  However, I’m also aware that I’m not on Gilligan’s Island.  Things will get better for me.

Things are already improving inch by inch, as I have someone who cares for me, and ours has become a beautiful friendship-which I hope turns into a hell of a lot more…because I can see myself being a father now for the first time in my life, while I laughed at the idea in prior times.

Now, if I’m right about that one, my dark side will likely dissipate, because I’ll have to serve as an example to this child whom I have a feeling is coming.  Oh, she’ll know about it (don’t ask me why I sense a daughter), but I’ll also show her the end results of what happens when you do all the things that I did.

But, I digress.

The second step in my journey begins eighteen minutes from now, and I’m ready for it.  I see it as a back up only.  However, having a Master’s Degree will give me at least a little more credibility.  It’s not going to be easy, but I don’t expect this to be as hard as the Bachelor’s degree was, nor will it take as long. 

I only must deal with 36 credits.  What’s that, 12 classes?

If I got through Psychology, I’ll get through Education.  It’s not that I believe in this crap.  It’s that I have to surrender without giving myself away for the time being (yeah, that’s a Cheap Trick reference-great show in 1997 at Woodley Park in the San Fernando Valley).

I’ll have a lot of input in these classes, because of my learning disabilities.  I’ll be able to tell them what works and what definitely doesn’t.  I’ll even share of some of experiences in how I got an autistic man to speak (though not well, because he didn’t learn when he should have).

Well, time to get to work.  The next fourteen months are going to be fun.

Freedom for the Oppressed: The Merciful and the Hypocritical

Freedom for the Oppressed: The Merciful and the Hypocritical: I feel sorry for those Christians who truly try to live out their faith in the sincerest way possible, because they are hampered by judgment...

The Merciful and the Hypocritical

I feel sorry for those Christians who truly try to live out their faith in the sincerest way possible, because they are hampered by judgmental and angry hypocrites who do nothing but nitpick.

When Jesus Christ ordered the Great Commission, He told His disciples to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations.  He didn’t tell them to berate other people who doubted or to condemn others.

He condemned those who condemned.

Christian A said : “Let's see, when Christ set up his universal soup kitchen and free hospitals funded by "federal government" I don't think he asked for "insurance cards" because, actually, he allowed himself to be crucified before any of that happened.”

Excuse me, but it seems to me that Christ did have universal soup kitchens-and I can prove that in two passages: the feeding of the 4,000 in Mark 8:1-21 and the feeding of the 5,000 in Matthew 14:13-21.  Now, if this person wants to discuss why the federal government must be involved, it’s only because those like him judge the poor rather than help them find a job which pays them a living wage. 

Oh, that also explains the parable of the workers, which is found in Matthew 20:1-16.  The men who lacked opportunity were paid the same as the men who had worked all day.

That’s what Trump voters say.  They blame the poor for their problems, but refuse to address lack of opportunity.  Well, both issues were addressed in this parable.
Christ also healed the blind man for free, didn’t He? 

How about Lazarus?  Did He strike Lazarus dead because Mary and Martha didn’t have any money?

Christian number 2 understands that my faith is a fabulous disaster because of those like Christian number 1.  She has her own battles to fight and she knows what it’s like to be in her own Garden of Gethsemane.  She has never condemned me for my doubts-probably because she’s had many herself.

She is the way a Christian ought to be.

I warn those who condemn people like me and people like her that 2 Peter 3:4 is just around the corner, and I know that because this nation has been taken over by hypocritical Christian fundamentalists like Republican Tim Murphy from Pennsylvania, who pleaded with his mistress to have an abortion-and this fuck.er has a 100 % rating from the Family Research Council, according to the Huffington Post
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/tim-murphy-retiring-abortion-scandal_us_59d5653ce4b0becae802458e.

Sex isn’t the issue.  Hypocrisy is-and conservatives are full of it (and in many ways). 

People are going to have sex.  Yes, marriage is the ideal setting.  However, birth control is a must.  You see, Mr. Cain, you are your brother's and sister's keeper.

How I Easily Destroy Religious Hypocrisy While Giving Jesus Christ A Hug

I have to say that religious fundamentalists make me laugh so hard at times that I almost lose control of my bladder.

A reader sarcastically asked: “
"The Christians have murdered more people in the history of the world than anyone else."
Oh, is that Settled Science?”

I began my response with: “That's established history-something which you are trying to rewrite…”

Let’s take a good look at the facts.  Let’s add these numbers and see what we get.
(source:http://articles.exchristian.net/2002/10/how-many-people-have-been-killed-by.php)
I’m going to have to get my calculator for this one.
Wow! 
Excluding the Burning Times and the Children’s Crusade, it appears that about 7,356,000 were murdered in the name of Christ.   However, I am reminded of that verse John 16:2.  While Christian fundamentalists might defend themselves by saying that this verse was aimed at the early Church, which was already being persecuted, heads became tails.
Hey, I’ve got an idea!  Let’s see what happened in the Western Hemisphere!  Oh, boy!
Wait a second!  This is more like ‘Oh, shit’, because there is no way anyone can keep track of the body count-it’s that bad (source: http://articles.exchristian.net/2002/10/how-many-people-have-been-killed-by.php).

What about in the Western Hemisphere?
Dennis Stannard, who is an expert on genocide, asserted that whites (Europeans since 1492) murdered and displaced approximately 70 million to 100 million native peoples in a span of only eighty years. 

I have now truly lost count. 

Native knowledge has been lost because of the book burning of 1577, which took place in Spain.  I wonder who else it was who was into book burning. Oh, yeah!  That guy!

Remember that Adolf Hitler was in power for only 12 years, and you will begin to see the depravity of this crime.  Hitler was evil enough, but imagine if those “Americans” (and we all know conservatives are anything but) that believed we should have stayed out of World War II had gotten their way.  That genocide would continue to this very day.

The saddest thing is that this continues today, as Christian organizations oppose any kind of birth control.  What does this lead to?  Poverty and starvation. 

Many Christians tell me that people should not have children that they cannot afford, but I simply respond with 1 Corinthians 7:9, in which Paul told people to marry rather than to burn with passion and that married couples needed to have sex regularly so that neither partner would be tempted to cheat.

To conservatives who “attempt” to read this article, don’t hate me because I know the Bible better than you do, start living as Christ told you to by showing mercy and compassion.  Unfortunately, you voted for Donald Trump, so I think I know which side of Christ you’ll be when Matthew 25:31-46 happens.

I may be a sinner, too, but at least I’m not a hypocrite.  My conscience is clear.
