I was a little late in watching 2017’s The Murder of Laci Peterson. This is an interesting series about Scott Peterson and his conviction for the murder of his pregnant wife in 2002. The program raises serious issues.
I do recall the sensational media storm of this trial, and in retrospect I feel kind of duped by the whole 24/7 news thing. Uncomfortably, I must admit this was not outside my own fault.
My generation was the first to appreciate all-day-long news coverage. This does not seem to fly with younger folks nowadays, and for good reason.
You can’t make this stuff up, people.
“Unlikely Pairing” on Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, reveals a strange bedfellows relationship between Scientology and the Nation of Islam (NOI).
I’m not that familiar with the NOI, but I have heard questionable and overtly hateful speech against whites and Jews. This had led to my perception that this organization is more of a fringe-type extremist group for black people. Yet, I can’t blame the black community for espousing principles of independence and a non-reliance on the suppressive white man.
A lot of southern states keep trying to adopt the display of the Ten Commandments in public arenas, including state buildings and school classrooms. Of course, backlash follows, and rightfully so.
This goes against the First Amendment, but so should placing your hand on the good book of rape and murder before swearing an oath in court.
In any event, there are many more disturbing commandments in the bible. I plopped five of them into a fun video, but I have to point out the most screaming hypocrisy.
I was all gung-ho to talk about the display of the Ten Commandments in schools and in other public arenas. I planned on commenting on the rote recitation of the “Pledge of Allegiance” which includes “One Nation, Under God.” Instead, I stumbled upon some fascinating history.
The original pledge is not what we know: it didn’t include the United States or God.
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” – Francis Bellamy, 1892
So there I was redditting when I came across a diddy in Ezekiel 20 that amused me. Somehow, I missed including a good biblical passage into my book, Sex in the Name of God.
Ezekiel 23 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.
There is a hint of jealousy regarding size, and God forbid women should get any big ideas.
This sounds like a true case of “penis envy,” a term coined by the famous Sigmund Freud wherein women don’t have penises; therefore they are envious of men.
Headline news tells us that radio station WDOK in Cleveland, Ohio is refusing to play the song, Baby It’s Cold Outside.
This duet involves a man trying to convince a lady friend to stay, either longer or for the evening, while the woman seems to be struggling with her conscience.
That’s my take, anyhow.
Naysayers are now claiming this classic to be akin to a rape song.
People are pointing to the phrases, “The answer is no” and “I really must go”. Yes, but she also seems to waffle with “I ought to say no,” and “Maybe just a half a drink more”.
Religious institutions, especially Catholicism, have not been kind to women. Nuns are very much on the decline because they weren’t taken care of as well as the men. Women also complain that the opportunity for rising up in the ranks is poor.
Having women in charge might fix a whole lotta messes.
Yet, it is beyond me why women would want to claw their way to the top of an organization that views them with less regard, is overly concerned with their vaginas, extols money, and molests children.
I received this ominous and unscrupulous email, which was in my inbox, to me, from me, without the pictures as follows:
I have bad news for you.
19/07/2018 – on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account.
It is useless to change the password, my malware intercepts it every time.
How it was:
In the software of the router to which you were connected that day, there was a vulnerability. I first hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.
When you entered in the Internet, my trojan was installed on the operating system of your device.
There must be something to be said about the connection between advertising and bowel obsession. Several years ago, commercials proclaimed the wonders of yogurt, which could assist in the gastrointestinal process of food going into the pie hole, and coming out of the brown eye. Thanks for the overly graphic anatomy lesson, but I was already in-the-know.
Recently, I was watching the boob tube, when an interesting commercial aired. A beautiful woman’s face filled the frame.
Spoiler alert: Pan out and we see that this woman is sitting on the toilet with her underwear around her ankles, which pretty much spoils any previous thoughts one might have had about this hot blonde.
Many solar eclipses ago, I knew a guy who always carried a towel. He was an employee of the father of a friend. Whenever he came around, he would always place his towel on a chair before sitting down.
Was this dude a character straight out of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? Besides this one obsession, he didn’t seem to exhibit any other OCD behaviors, and he didn’t seem like a neat freak. To the contrary, he was usually somewhat disheveled and more than a little sweaty.
So one day, I finally ask the guy: “Why do you always sit on a towel?”
