Bizzarro World of Politics 2012

Where Lies are truth, Truth is buried, Journalism is yellow, and fear has set in.

As if all the moles in places of honor, of integrity, of security have been told to cash it in, blow it up, set the fire...
Priests and Secret Service,
Bankers Nurses Doctors Lawyers
Public service = private theft,

Kill
 to steal
a baby or some shoes.

Eyes Are Part of the Brain (redux) Three years go by...

It is True.
where this building stood, is now the Flint Hills Discovery Center. The whole area was wiped clean; as one enters Manhattan, one is now greeted with a shiney new place to learn about the Konza.
I have videos of the destruction/construction process i will post.
AFRICA IN MANHATTAN

Summer L, on the other hand, has visited more continents in the past three years
 than most people will in their LIFETIME. Summer Rocks. That is cool on so many levels...!
SUMMER BEFORE BANGLEDESH

BUTTERFLY IN THE YARD

Now, this has not changed. I have a constant stream of butterflies in season; i even plant dill, parsley and other herbs just to feed the caterpillars...
Butterflies HERE and HERE. help yourself to placemat sized posters...

this little beauty was
hatched from an egg, caterpillared around,
and posed for this pic before taking off for a alittle vacation in mexico...

"at least he's not a commie" Funniest Campaign Slogan of All Time.


Politics 2012. This gwine get ugly. Oh, hang on puppies this will be a wild ride.

 A__get mean   and /or
     B___humor of politics and rock stars 
and/or   c__to laugh

The most laughs i've had in a month when i
caught opening minutes of the glenn beck radio program this morning
usually i cry when i hear it
Here is the defining moment of politics 2012:
"Mitt Romney: At least he's not a commie..."



Humor?
what is mean, what is violent, what spurs hatred, what should be BANNED?

or must we all bear the use of humor we do not like?


it pervades. and if you find yourself UNABLE to laugh at this:
then you need to find some vacation time or spiritual solace, stp away from the politics, and help out at a day care for awhile.

Insanity is taught to us:   stoning-jared-lee-loughner

and
jared-lee-loughner-sins-everyone-pick up a rock





Popular fashion and cool stuff is what we should be spending our treasure on...If you are truly evolved you care about these   and   these

i'm too sexy to be smart
too fabulous to think
too wicked to be good

Most popular national enquiry ever...

evolution, baby.

My tax dollars pay for the Egyptian war on women- what? I could buy kicky new sandals with that money...

Most girls in Egypt are mutilated when they are young, in the genital area.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_cutting

Radicals (like the Muslim Brotherhood) OBJECT to the ban on this degrading, insane practice.
http://womensenews.org/story/genital-mutilation/120327/islamist-parliamentarian-objects-egypts-ban-fgm

Sadly, Ask Lara Logan.
 HERE and HERE
And yet, for some reason, the U.S. Administration is giving a Billion.5 tax dollars to the very people who enslave and mutilate women???  I understand why this might be kept quiet, but do you know how many paychecks i had taxed to come up with a billion and half dollars?!

http://news.yahoo.com/obama-helps-muslim-brotherhoods-war-egyptian-women-152000641.html
"...it is treating with a terrorist group that has as its governing platform the imposition of Sharia Law, which would send Egyptian women into lives of degradation and oppression..."

and another article HERE
"October 2010 ...the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood called for jihad against the United States. You might think that this all but unnoticed bombshell would be of some importance to policymakers in Washington. It was not. It is not. This week, the Obama administration quietly released $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian government, now dominated by a Brotherhood-led coalition in parliament — soon to be joined by an Ikhwan (i.e., Brotherhood) luminary as president. It is not easy to find the announcement. ...we must turn for such news to outlets like the Kuwait News Agency. There, we learn that, [[despite a ]] $16 trillion debt hole, President Obama has nevertheless decided to borrow more money from unfriendly powers like China so he can give it to an outfit that views the United States as an enemy to be destroyed..."

more on egypt, like forced virginity checks HERE and more HERE

The muslim brotherhood and womens rights: HERE

Why is our government and press being "fooled" by these thugs?

I do not like working an hour a day to give the taxes on my paycheck to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Sadness.
Ask Lara Logan about the new arab spring.
Ask the local christians about the systematic rape and murder.
http://news.yahoo.com/egypt-coptic-church-decries-attacks-christians-140330531.html

Jews are unable to live in Egypt! There are present, less than 100 Egyptian Jews (in a population of 69 million. Most are elderly women.)

So where is the religious tolerance?
Where is the love?

where the meekness, humility, peacemaking?

Viático de Vagamundo: Entry of Christ into Jerusalem

   Jerusalem HERE







A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not approach you. You will only look on with your eyes And see the recompense of the wicked. For you have made the LORD, (my refuge, Even the Most High,) your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent. 

For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra, The young lion and the serpent you will trample down. "Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. "He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. "With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My salvation."   

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty… For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day; Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

Afghan Women, the Taliban, and the Withdrawal of U.S. Troops

"Half of all Afghans are utterly terrified, understandably so." So writes Joel Brinkley in a column discussing the consequenses of the U.S. troop withdrawal.
We have seen HERE and HERE the horrible politics hurting women in Afghanistan.
[Women, War, and Peace:
 Extended Preview at KSU from PBS
"We Taliban will kill you in such a harsh way
that no woman have so far been killed in that manner..."]

And only a fool doesn't realize that the Afghan people realize that those who cooperated with us in the past few years will be quickly tortured and slaughtered when we leave.
 
Please consider this essay!
