Knowing that everything is the result of cause and effect is why I can’t swallow religion. Miracles defy logic, common sense and reality. With miracles, there is no cause and effect, there’s no possible explanation, other than to say it was the act of a deity, which is why miracles are fantasies and hallucinations.

What I saw the other night wasn’t a miracle and since I’m not a believer type, nor a drug user, or have a history of seeing things that aren’t really there, I feel certain that what I saw was really there.

No hoaxer of any mental acuity capable of creating something that vast in size that can fly rapidly and silently, would deliberately cover it with randomly blinking lights that immediately suggest an amateurish hoax, nor perpetrate such a hoax where it stood little chance of being seen.

I have a vast range of experience and an excellent memory. I’ve seen a number of things that have no apparent reason, yet they all involve Nature or forces of Nature and so must be the result of cause and effect. In other words, while strange, they’re acceptable. They weren’t miracles or beyond the realm of possibility.

What I saw the other night was a first. Nothing in my entire life prepared me for it in any way. I was astounded, awed, the old term “flabbergasted” is appropriate. This thing was no miracle, it was the creation of intelligent effort. The lights formed a group and the group moved in unison as a single unit. Obviously, the lights were ON an object and the object moved at a good speed. It’s hard to judge speed because judging distance of such a thing at night is nearly impossible, but I can at least assume a MINIMUM speed simply because of the rate it diminished in size over time, and it had to be going at least a few hundred miles an hour.

I’ve seen things at night that sure were not “weather balloons” or “swamp gas”, and I am convinced that “people” from other planets have come here and still are. There’s plenty of ancient references regarding such visitations, not the least being Ezekial’s “wheel within a wheel”, a perfect description of sightings still happening today. In all honesty, I’ve tried hard to come up with some way this could have been something us humans pulled off, most likely some sort of military experiment, because I’ve found that I’m actually reluctant to ascribe it to alien beings, for some reason. I guess I just never expected to have an experience like this in my own life. It’s something others always have, and I’ve always doubted their stories at least a little bit.

But I can’t. I don’t know that this UFO was some sort of alien craft, but I do feel certain without knowing for sure that it’s nothing we humans made. Everything about it was just WRONG, unearthly. I wish the damn thing had come by an hour earlier while there was still some light in the sky, some visibility. But the bottom line is this: The only explanation for what I saw is that it was an alien craft. That doesn’t mean it actually was an alien craft, it’s just the only explanation for it. We have no “current technology” that can produce anything close to this, so it wasn’t made by us. There is no known force of Nature that can produce such an effect, I know because I’ve read about them all, twice over, and experienced most of them.

So if, or until, something is revealed or some discovery made that can explain how a half-mile wide object covered with lots of randomly flashing strobe lights can fly silently at high speed through mountainous terrain without incident, I’m going to assume that I saw an alien space ship.

Obama wants to appoint an openly homosexual man, a flaming faggot named Eric Fanning, to be the civilian head of our army, he’s invited all the top radical Left homosexuals to attend the coming visit of the Pope, most of whom are openly hostile to the Pope and are expected to confront the Pope, and whose presence will be an insult to the Pope. He’d done everything possible to promote homosexuality in our country, including putting lesbians on our Supreme Court who have usurped states rights and our Constitution in declaring homosexual marriage to be a right.

These are just some highlights. He’s hosted a variety of homosexual soirees in the White House including a big party for the Rainbow crowd, he’s replaced most of our admirals and generals with homosexual officers, hell, when he first was elected he appointed a homosexual child molester to be Safe Schools “Czar”. A pedophile for Safe Schools.

Can anyone still doubt that Barack is queer? So does it make sense that “Michelle” is female, that he has sex with a woman? When “Michelle’s” birth certificate says Michael and Barack refers to him as Michael? When there’s no birth records or baby pictures for his two supposed “daughters”?

We have a homosexual radical Leftist and a student of Saul Alinsky for our President, and Saul Alinsky taught the destruction of America in EXACTLY the way Obama is going about it.

The first one was held by Fox News, and featured Fox news anchor Megyn Kelly, who launched a constant series of attack questions at Donald Trump, but not at any of the other candidates. As a result of Fox’s extremely biased handling of that supposed debate, I seldom watch Fox News and never when Megyn Kelly is on. Like many others, I mostly get my news from Newsmax now because of that gross charade.

After the Fox debate debacle, I fully expected CNN’s hosting of the second debate to be nothing but attack questions, since Fox is thought of as a Conservative station while CNN has consistently been Liberal. To my genuine surprise, CNN conducted a very fair, very intelligent program, no attack questions at all, and everyone was given a chance to give their views on various subjects. They put Fox News so far into the shade with their decent behavior it was pitiful.

As for the candidates, this is the first time I’ve really gotten to hear what Marco Rubio has to say, and he was the most well spoken of them all. He spoke rapidly and very clearly, not a trace of stuttering, hesitation or repetition, something none of the other candidates could claim. It’s too soon at this writing for new public polls to be out on these candidates, but I fully expect to see Rubio’s star shining a lot brighter now.

As usual, Mike Huckabee raved on about the evils of abortion, an entirely religious issue not shared by most women and certainly not by me, since I’m very anti population growth and pro women’s rights. Rand Paul made some good points but he just looks like too much of a wuss, and looks matter. Likewise Scott Walker, with his ridiculous bald-spot comb-over that leaves a shiny round circle showing on top, and that mama’s boy face. Christi says good stuff but he’s a porker like Huckabee. We just don’t elect fatties as our presidents.

Jeb Bush is a weenie, George Pataki just looks too tired, and Carly Fiorina’s face goes spastic when she speaks while her eyes blink with each word. That gets hard to look at in a hurry. It’s just plain unattractive.

Ben Carson did well and I think outshone Donald Trump, though Trump was given the most talk time and I noticed the cameras followed him around pretty exclusively after the debate, when everyone was milling around.

So I think the new polls will say that Carson and Trump are either neck and neck now, or that Carson now has a point or two edge, that Rubio is up, Cruz is about the same, Fiorina is back down a point and so is Bush. By tomorrow evening we can see how my prediction matches up with the polls.

That’s if for today. Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.

Donald Trump is losing it with me. Saying that we should take in Syrian “refugees” was not the thing for him to do. Bad move. NO, Donald, WE SHOULD NOT TAKE IN A SINGLE EFFING SYRIAN. GOT IT? I’m beginning to wonder if you aren’t a Progressive. Hmmm?

Syria is now getting lots of military help, very suddenly, from Vladimir. Major help, big, big help. While Obama hands Iran a free license to make atomic bombs, at the very same time Iran and Russia more than double up on their assistance to Syria. No coincidence there. Obama’s been aiding and abetting the civil war against Assad for years, so this is just one more chance for Putin and the Grand Ayatollah to stick a finger in his eye. Plus, they gain more strategic territory to operate out from, as well as more access to the oil. Great move, Genius Obama, so smart, we are so proud… Oh, and about that Syrian civil war? You’re losing it. I’m glad, because his announce objective was to make Syria into a democracy. Just like his objectives with Egypt and Libya. Remember them? Egypt nearly had a civil war getting rid of Obama’s toady, Morsi, and his Muslim Brotherhood, and Libya is lost to the Sunni terrorists. Oh, and let’s not forget his withdrawal of our troops from Irag, that is now being ripped apart by ISIS. Obama’s concept of democracy sure isn’t anything like I learned in school.

Obama has a long time to run us into the dirt yet. Fifteen whole months. A President can do tons of really bad stuff in fifteen months.

This evening I enjoyed one of the perks of living in this rather remote little mountain desert community as I sat on my deck and watched the sun set in the West. The colors were right out of a Maxfield Parrish painting, the startling, yet calming, perfectly pure blue overlaid with a bank of glowing orange, stratified clouds. Not just any orange, but exactly that deeply romantic Parrish orange.

Desert sunsets are like the ones seen at sea, often, and the view to the West from my perch high on the hillside is expansive.

Our natural world always has been my favorite entertainment.

Coasting through life can be pretty comfortable, even on a modest but steady retirement income, but it gets damn boring after awhile. Lately I’ve been getting antsy for change, non-Obama type if you’ll pardon the mention. I’m an impulsive type, always have been but I’ve learned to somewhat temper my tendency to leap into action at the first sign of that bat signal beamed at the clouds, and generally I think about things for awhile before going ahead and leaping.

My reason for the leaps has always been “it sounds like fun” and nothing has changed there. If the reason for doing it isn’t to seek fun, yes and some happiness along with it, of course, then I don’t do it. Misery has an uncanny knack of finding us no matter what, so taking any chance that looks to have even a 50% possibility of becoming a drag, is out for this guy.

Okay, that’s enough preamble, now to the meat. Waaay back in the Hippie days I had a factory making candles and incense. I made Strobe Candles, as a matter of fact, as I am the inventor of them. Most people alive today have never heard of them, but they were super-hot, big-time sellers back in 1968 through 1970, I made and sold hundreds of thousands of them all over the USA and Canada. The Beatles used to trip out on my Strobe Candles. The incense sold like hot cakes at a cowboy breakfast, too. It’s brand name was Glad Stone Incense. Update, Sept. 4: I’m making strobe candles again, the special material for the wicks should arrive tomorrow, in fact. Am also making Glad Stone Incense again. Check out You’ll find the Strobe candle page link at the bottom of the incense page.

I miss those old days and lately I notice that with the increasing legality of marijuana, incense and candles are getting popular again. So all the supplies are ordered and about half of them have arrived so far, to start manufacturing Glad Stone Incense and Strobe Candles once again. Yeehaw, psychedelic, groovy man.

And… I have a place up the street in escrow, that I’m buying really, really cheap, that’s been vacant for years since the owners died. It needs fixing up. Anyway, there’s this old gal who lives next door who isn’t bad to look at considering her age, plus I suspect she’s an old Hippie like me. So I stopped by today to ask her out and she was clearly thrilled at the offer. Yep, looks more and more like my kind of gal, these snob types who don’t give a shit ain’t for me. So who knows but what I may have a new girlfriend after remaining obstinately single for the past 15 years.

It’s about time I got up off my ass and did something like this, but… opportunities have to present themselves in a timely fashion, too, and we have to be ready for them when they do.

Vester Flanagan, now deceased by his own hand, was killed by Political Correctness as much as his own mental derangement, and this is one more case for putting Political Correctness on trial, finding it guilty, and sentencing it to permanent banishment from human society forever.

PC has been around a long time now. I used to publish articles in a local Northern Calif. newspaper under the pseudonym of Captain Havoc, denouncing PC for the jackass movement that it is, back in the 90′s. I was right then and I’m still right now, Political Correctness kills.

Mr. Flanagan was a homosexual black man who rose to a high position in the company he worked for, as a television anchorman, and he was unable to cope with his own success. Part of his problem was inherently in being homosexual, as homosexuality is often accompanied by mental instability and over-emotionality, and this was true in his case, by all appearances. He was fired from his job after refusing to seek mental health care, because he was abusive and threatening toward other workers, to the point that they felt seriously threatened by him.

He simmered in his fury over his imagined mistreatment for several years before finally going back to the TV studio where he’d worked, and shooting two former, and white, employees to death on live television. Apparently he blamed white people for not understanding and appreciating him as much as he appreciated himself, and he missed his television fame, which is why he committed murder in front of a live television audience.

Political Correctness wants us to think and believe that everyone is the same, like rubber ducks off an assembly line, all the same, all equal. We’re not. The frequent mental instability of homosexuals is denied, as is their higher rate of child sex abuse. The different racial characteristics of our different types is denied, even when some of these characteristics are more toward violence, or more sociopathic behavior.

Promoters of Political Correctness blame white people for all our social ills, they promote homosexuality, they’ve created a whole new type of human, the LGBT person, and brand new human sexes, the Transgender and the Trans-Sexual. Political Correctness has taken our once united people and separated us out into opposing groups by color and form of sexual deviance, and then tells us we should all accept each others differences and love each other. Instead this has caused us all to be antagonistic toward each other by violating our social norms. PC has fragmented America, has caused the race riots in Boston and Ferguson, Missouri with it’s promotion of Black Entitlement, and we haven’t begun to see the end of it.

Bryce Williams, aka Vester Flanagan, dead by his own hand, is as much a victim of this insanity as the people he killed, that he most likely never would have killed if he hadn’t been convinced by the PC crowd that all his problems were the fault of white people. Mr. Flanagan was a victim of his own belief in his entitlement as a black person.

Any questions?


Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Niggers push Dem. candidate Bernie Sanders off the stage where people gathered to hear him, so they could rant about racism. What assholes! This little rat pack assaulted the civil rights of another and took away his forum so they could take over and complain about their civil rights being taken away.

Niggers push Dem. speaker off stage and yap about equal treatment.

Personally, I think Bernie Sanders is an asshole as well, but at least he behaves himself in public.

Now that the uproar is subsiding over the first Republican Debate, one thing I’ve waited to hear about has remained in silence. That is the fact that the Fox News moderators of that debate asked questions designed to demean and embarrass all ten of the candidates, and a few in particular, as well as almost completely ignoring one other, the Negro, Dr. Ben Carson.

My point is that Fox News is supposed to be Conservative and intent on seeing a Republican become our next President. If this is really true, then why attack the candidates, any of the candidates? Instead, why not ask them questions designed to make each of them look good? What Fox News has done is put doubts in the minds of the public about all of them. Does anyone really think that CNN is going to attack any Democrat candidates like that? In a pigs eye they will, they’ll ask questions about the candidates supposedly wonderful achievements and high moral values. They’ll do their best to make their candidates look like gifts from Heaven and ours like corrupt swine from Hell. The latter, they may not need to press too hard, since Fox News seems happy to do all that for them.

Don’t take this too seriously.

There is a finite amount of energy in the Universe. Energy is not an unlimited thing, and it comes in a variety of types. Mechanical, as in inertia, electrical, atomic, heat, light and so forth. Even gravity is a form of energy. I postulate that Life is also a form of energy. Cellular fission, the duplication of a cell, a cluster of cells, a massive collection of specialized cells, all working in harmony and producing more massive collections like themselves, Life. Movement. Reproduction. A flow of energy spanning the millennia, slowly changing in form, appearance and function as it bends to environmental pressures.

So I ask the question: Since there’s a finite limit to energy, is there a limit to the different forms of energy? Mass is in fact energy, and it appears that our Universe is at maximum mass right now. There can be no more mass, all that can happen now is that mass is steadily converted to energy and that energy flees our Universe at the speed of light. For instance, stars are atomic furnaces burning hydrogen, turning it into heavier and heavier elements and giving off lots of energy in the process, which speeds away in all directions. Eventually the star burns out. Gravity is the catalyst that starts the furnace burning and as the star burns up its fuel, it loses weight. It’s gravity decreases, and it reaches a point where the fuel supply is too low and it’s gravity too weak to keep the fire burning. It runs out of energy. The energy of stars is finite, just as the energy of our Universe is.

Since there’s a limit to mass, there’s a limit to gravity. There may be limits to the amount of heat and light in the Universe too. I don’t know. But my real question here is, is there also a limit to life energy? Can there be only just so much life at a maximum in the Universe? What about Earth? Is our planet limited to the total amount of life it can support? Suppose we consider life energy as a quantity rather than as a collection of billions or trillions of individual living things, from bacteria to whales. Seems reasonable that there’d be a limit, every ecology has a limit to how much life it can support.

I notice that as some types of creatures increase, others decrease, Mountain lion and deer populations go back and forth, for example. As humanity increases in numbers, everything else decreases except mice, rats and cockroaches, which are parasites of humans and therefore increase along with them. Yet the overall amount of life remains much the same. Now, what if this is a universal constant that applies at the local level? That is, if Earth’s total life energy dropped dramatically from a meteor strike, for instance, would that allow life on another planet to increase? So for life on Earth to return to it’s former high level, would that require a decrease somewhere else?

An aborted fetus is not a dead baby. Okay? The first thing needed here is to get past the sensationalism and hype. Babies are born. Fetuses are not.

The next point we need to be clear on is that life is not sacred. “Sacred” is a religious idea, that “God” created life, so all life is sacred in some beliefs where only human life is “sacred” in other beliefs. Beliefs are merely opinions, and religions are all nothing more than beliefs. We need to stick to known facts if this is to be a rational discussion. Beliefs may seem rational but they have nothing to do with facts.

The argument is made that human life begins at conception. The same is true of all life, a creature begins to form once an egg and a sperm unite. In humans, this does not constitute an actual baby. Modern medical techniques can maintain the life of a fetus outside the womb if it’s developed enough, but that same fetus would die if born too soon and not supported artificially. The same as a premature dog or cat fetus would die. A fetus is a fetus until it’s born. Then it’s a baby. But let’s not get all tripped up over semantics. Words aren’t facts, they’re only concepts used to describe reality.

The Religious Right is aflame right now over the revelation that Planned Parenthood, an organization that supports abortions, has been harvesting body parts from the aborted fetuses and selling them. Supposedly, this is terrible. This is just awful, oh what horrible people to sell kidneys and livers for research. Really? Why is that bad? Isn’t that a whole lot better than just disposing of the fetuses? People sell kidneys and livers all the time. When a doctor does a heart transplant, do you think that heart was free? What do you think it costs to remove a kidney or heart from a dead person and preserve it, transport it, do all the paperwork, assign it to someone on a long list who needs one? Gee, do you think if someone made a $100,000 donation they might go to the top of that list? Huh?

No. Selling fetus tissue and body parts is perfectly proper, what’s improper is painting Planned Parenthood people to look like butchers. They’re not, they’re advancing Medicine and making a profit doing it, exactly the same as any medical lab or pharmaceutical company does, and the Religious Right is being Politically Correct instead of realistic and reasonable. Shame on them.

Ohio Governor John Kasich has just announced his candidacy for President, becoming the Infinite Number candidate behind the entire cast of The Simpsons, everyone in the states of New York, South Dakota and Utah of eligible status, all those buried in all our National Cemeteries since the onset of the Civil War, all the victims and survivors of World War II, living or dead, everyone on Social Security, the Philharmonic Orchestra, the Wekuck, Nebraska Glee Club, the Bowery Boys, and all rock stars 35 years old or older. Since there won’t be enough room at the usual Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, the Ohio Governor John Kasich, not coincidentally, has ordered the entire state evacuated except for Republicans, to make room.

In point of fact, there are so many candidates now in the Republican field that it’s become as ridiculous as this silly article. Kasich is the 16th candidate to announce, and with 16 months to go yet before the election, there’s still plenty of time for a whole bunch more to announce. Too many more. Way more than there’s ever been before, and I can’t help thinking that surely most of these people know they don’t stand a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning. So why do it? Because after they’ve retired from politics, they can look at their biography and read with pride the part that says they ran for President of the United States. It’s an ego trip. The fact that this crap is going to make a mess of their National Convention is secondary to them.

One more reason why no one should ever serve more than one term of office in any elective job. Got elected Dog Catcher? Okay, that’s it. You can never run for office again. I mean what the hell? Donald Trump never ran for office before but I’d vote for him as President. He’s qualified. Nobody gets more than one shot. No more career politicians.

There’s a big push among the rabble-rousers in Negro circles to get attention now, with the slogan “Black Lives Matter”.

What about the lives of other people of other races? One thing about any new outcry coming from black instigators is the raw selfishness that’s always present. These so-called “leaders” never concern themselves with the rest of the human race, just Negroes.

In the first place, Negroes kill each other off with abandon. No racial group in America murders it’s own people more than Negroes and it’s obvious that black lives actually don’t matter to them at all. What they’re really crying about is when Negroes die at the hands of the police or of white people, and it needs to be said that percentage wise, more whites are killed by police than Negroes, by far, even though Negroes commit most of the violence and murders.

The real purpose of all this “Black lives matter” stuff is to gain attention to themselves, get on television, make money doing it, and make police afraid to shoot at them no matter what they’re doing. They want things to be like the old Wild West, with no Sheriff in town to stop them.

First off, bribery of a public official is a crime, with prison as the punishment for it, but I guess it’s legal when our government seeks to bribe religious groups, or they wouldn’t do it, right? “Religious groups that refuse abortion counseling no longer can get grants to help human trafficking victims,” comes the latest anti-religion assault from our Department of Health and Human Services. They offer free money to religious groups seeking to counsel sex slaves, but only if those groups teach the victims to have abortions, in violation of the religious beliefs of these charitable groups.

Now, I think all religion is crap, and I’m for abortion, not against it. BUT. What the Hell is our government doing, offering bribes, offering pieces of silver in exchange for violating one’s faith?

If religious groups were excluded from these grants from the beginning, there would be no problem. But they weren’t, and now that they’re all set up to do the work, all organized, all doing a great service for humanity, in steps our government and says “Ok, now you have to talk them into having abortions.” This just makes me want to go and slap the living shit out these jackasses. 27 pieces of silver come to mind….

I see that John McCain is still feuding with Donald Trump. Every time McCain blurts something negative about Trump, Trump blurts something negative back about McCain, only the difference is, Trump strikes right to the heart, which of course really pisses off the person trying to attack him. McCain and the rest need to learn to shut up, they aren’t going to get the best of Donald and the more they try, the stupider they look.

I don’t like John McCain. I used to, before he exposed himself as a RINO. He sides way too much with the Democrat Libtard Socialists to be called a Conservative. As for Donald and Mcain both, along with Rubio, Jeb Bush and others, they’re all violating the Eleventh Commandment, given to us by Ronald Reagan, which is, “Thou shalt not speak badly of a fellow Republican”. Damn good advice. This infighting in the GOP has got to stop. It hurts the party and hurts our chances of getting rid of the Socialists running our country.

Airhead Huffnpuff, the owner of the Liberal blog “Huffington Post” (Pretty sure I spelled her name right) has announced that her imitation of a news media source isn’t going to post news about Donald Trump as political news anymore, but instead will put stories about him in with other celebrity stories. I agree with Donald’s assessment of the Huffy Post’s asinine announcement as, basically, ten thousand give-a-shits. The Huffy Post is the blog equivalent of CNN, a “yellow rag” in journalistic terms, a mouthpiece of liars and cowards.

Our Presidential Election is 16 months away yet, a full year and four months, and the final candidate out of each party has yet to be chosen. The Republican field is crowded, and while Donald Trump has risen to the top, a little while ago Jeb Bush had that spot, and Dr. Ben Carson did before him. Who knows which hopeful candidate will be riding the crest next month? Yet a blog popular with the Radical Left is running with their tail tucked between their legs over the possibility of Donald Trump becoming our next President. Clearly they see him as the biggest threat yet to their hopes of inflicting yet another mad dog radical socialist on us as President, and I thank Airhead and the Huffy staff for making this so obvious. The conservative who frightens them the most is the one I want to see get the job.

When Donald Trump made his remarks about the poor quality of Mexicans coming here illegally, he got a ton of flak for it and the potshots are still flying through the air at him from the Liberal sob sisters. Yet at the same time, people are finally speaking out about the high level of crime, and the severity of those crimes, that are committed by illegal aliens, particularly Hispanics. Of course, the vast majority of illegals are Hispanics.

The worthless scum who murdered that young woman a few days ago in San Francisco, for no reason whatever, has finally gotten the Libtard politicians in Sacramento to reconsider the laws allowing cities like San Francisco to make themselves “Sanctuary Cities” that invite illegals to stay there, safe from arrest. That murderer was a convicted felon and should have been deported instead of being released after having committed yet another crime. But he was released and then murdered that woman. We’re finally starting to see our media reporting these crimes, and making an issue of the terrible problems we’re having because of our unprotected border with Mexico.

Today I read where another convicted illegal alien has just been found to have murdered a woman 18 years ago. DNA tied him to a cold case right after he was released from Federal Prison for unlawfully re-entering this country after having been deported as a felon.

They just keep coming right back in, because we keep letting them go. It doesn’t matter that we deport them because our border is mostly unprotected and in many cases re-entering is as easy as just walking across the street.

I hope Donald Trump is serious about running for President, I hope he wins the Republican nomination, and then the Presidency. I think he’s our very best shot at getting our border with Mexico closed up and some severe penalties enacted and enforced for those who enter illegally. Hell, if you get caught entering Mexico illegally they put you in prison for 10 years, and you’re very likely to die in there long before your time is up. We need to make it just as scary for them.

The only person who seems to actually qualify as a leader of the people is Netanyahu, the Jewish guy. All the rest are nutjobs and jackasses, imperious pricks only out for themselves or with bad agendas. Like Vlad Putin. Crazy people like the king of Saudi Arabia or the Supreme Ayatollah of Iran. How can the world find stability when there’s no agreement about the best way to make everything better for everybody, and none of them want to anyway?

Developers want more people to have more babies and buy more houses and rent more apartments that they build more of on steadily disappearing natural habitat, and help cause a modern Mass Extinction. All over the world.

Cutting down the forests and wiping out marine life is causing less carbon dioxide to be separated back into free oxygen and bound carbon, and the oxygen content of our air is decreasing steadily.

Global quality of life is getting worse for everything, not just our increasing population but for all creatures, entirely because of our increasing population.

Barren deserts have become cities, and water, our most plentiful substance, is getting harder to get. It’s become a battle between farmers and flush toilets.

We are constantly on the edge of war. All over the world, everyone is either fighting or worried about fighting or getting ready to fight. We have the most amazing global communication system now, we can talk to anyone anywhere on the planet almost instantly, and yet the world has no peace, there’s no accord between nations, hatred is increasing the more we talk to each other, instead of decreasing. Why? Because we’re all unreasonable and our amazing instant communication has only intensified the truth of that.

That and of course the fact that we all want to kill each other and get some space to breathe in again.

I like to find the good in things, and what I’m down to is ignoring the world around me if I want to feel happy once in a while. Paying too much attention to reality only depresses me. We are really in a huge mess and it’s steadily, maybe even exponentially, getting worse. There’s no chance at all that anything is going to get better. It’s not. Everything is getting steadily worse and is going to continue to, only it seems to do it so slowly. You have to live a long time and not be afraid to remember, how good it was, to see how bad it is. If you were born 20 years ago you don’t see much change, but if you were born 40 years ago, you do. Slow motion is a fooler but it’s speeding up now. Hold onto your socks.

As individuals, what we do is pursue happiness on a daily basis, blindly, selfishly. We have to, what else can we do? The future is uncertain. We don’t dare face reality because we can’t handle it. We say, oh, that’s over there, not here, not my problem, you worry too much, I’m busy with this right now. We don’t look, we don’t want to look. We can’t handle looking at it. Just people like me who aren’t afraid to look, sometimes I feel like I’m a separate breed of person. Hell, I know I am. Looking doesn’t scare me, it fascinates me, like watching the twin towers collapsing. In slow motion.

“Elmer Gantry” is a Sinclair Lewis book, very famous, that portrays a blatantly hypocritical American Midwest preacher who uses religion to gain money and power. Gantry doesn’t believe, nor practice, a word of the Gospel he preaches. For some time now I’ve been suspecting ISIS’ leaders to be doing exactly the same thing.

Most of the top Muslim leaders, the Grand Muftis and so forth, are saying that ISIS doesn’t represent Islam and is in fact anti-Islam. Yet that hasn’t slowed down the rush of young Muslims, mostly Arabs, from joining them, because everything ISIS does is straight out of Islamic teachings. ISIS leaders are gaining huge political power, which is clearly their primary goal. They can’t realistically hope to take over the entire world, and all the majority Islamic nations first, yet they state that this is their goal, regardless. ISIS leaders literally are on a quest to dominate the entire Earth, and this can only lead to a global war against them with even Islamic nations fighting against them, and let’s face it, this is crazy.

That Islam promotes insanity is plain to anyone who studies this bloody death cult. The extreme contradictions within the teachings combined with the hatred and love of suffering and death twist the minds of children from the very start who are born into the religion. Islam is anti-humanity. So it’s easy to see that even though the ISIS leaders do have a very clear view of their goals and their path to them, they’re headed to their own destruction because their goals are insane along with their methods. They intend to slaughter their way to world domination, just as Adolf Hitler and the Japanese did and they failed because their brutality and insanity made the rest of the world more desperate to defeat them than they were desperate to win.

ISIS is simply too small a segment of Islam to succeed. Even if every Muslim on the planet joined them, they’d still be vastly outnumbered.

Elmer Gantry failed in the end because his bounding ego couldn’t contain his blatant hypocrisy, and he was eventually disowned by the churches. Already, most Islamic leaders are disowning ISIS. If enough of them feel sufficiently threatened to really start speaking out, that will cut the flow of new recruits to ISIS and they’ll wither and die.

ISIS isn’t the problem, however. The problem is the bloody violence and hatred inherent in the teachings of Islam, and there will be more ISIS-type uprisings, more Talibans and Boko Harams, for centuries to come unless Islam itself undergoes a fundamental transformation. There’s a lot of peace and love stuff within Islamic scriptures too, that needs to be the focus of Islam if that religion is going to survive. The world isn’t going to put up with this crap forever.

Greece has reached the point of financial insolvency that the government will close all the banks tomorrow in an effort to prevent what’s called “a run” on them, where a panicked population rushes to their banks and withdraws all their money, and the banks have to shut down for lack of funds.

If this happens, their banking system collapses. Paychecks can’t be issued if there’s no money in the banks to cover them, all personal and business finance must either be done in cash or not at all. Chaos will ensue, along with looting and rioting when people have no money to buy food. A banking collapse makes this unavoidable.

Greece has been a poor nation now for a very long time, and a poorly managed one as well. The formation of the European Union attempted to take all of Europe under it’s single flag and single currency, but each nation held onto their own forms of welfare and socialist entitlements. Greece has perhaps more entitlements than any other European nation and can afford them the least. Not a good combination, and when some of these entitlements were taken away as part of the demands made by the EU, in exchange for bailout loans, the people rioted. Now, there will be no more bailout money, Greece is about to default on a $1.75 billion debt payment, which will end any further emergency loans and possibly force their removal from the Eurozone.

Originally, Greece was included in the EU because of the dreams of the EU’s founders, who wanted a trade bloc to rival the United States, Russia and China in size. But Greece proved to be a bad apple in the barrel, with it’s poverty and welfare entitlements, so then the EU tried to fix it by pouring money into Greece. It didn’t work and now, if Greece collapses monetarily, the Euro may end up doing the same thing as other, poorer EU nations also default on their payments or return to their own former currencies. This could actually lead to war in Europe as military intervention to prevent other nations from leaving the Union is a distinct possibility.
