My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

David Who??

Once again the thought police rears it’s ugly head.  Now I don’t really care what evil you think, as long as you don’t act.  If you want to trash my blog mentally, strangle me for Conservative posts mentally, or think pleasant thoughts about the lamebrains in Congress, have at it.  HOWEVER, if you wish to act on your thoughts well,  whoa, there big boy.  My blog is sacred ground to me, my neck is definitely “my neck” and not meant to be strangled in in way, shape, matter or form.  And well……good thoughts about Congress, go for it, maybe it will get there by osmosis. 

As far as I know the reality is, no one person, can read another person's mind.  If I am wrong, please cite me names, dates and places to document it.  I will then post a retraction.  You probably have guessed this “thought” garbage put out there as "intent" is BS in this ex-officers world.  Think all you want, act on it and your were mine!

Now comes the academic (or should I say anemic) world and it seems one professor can actually read an entire body of student"s minds.  All at one time, sort of simultaneously, all together at the same time as Yogi Berra might say!

Here’s the web site where I got the article:

http://weaselzippers.us/2010/09/20/academic-at-university-of-illinois-the-students-nativist-display-on-911-of-chanting-usa-at-a-football-game-is-offensive-to-muslims/

Here is the entire article copied from the above web site:


(Daily Illini)- The vast majority of 9/11 observances in this country cannot be seen as politically neutral events. Implicit in their nature are the notions that lives lost at the World Trade Center are more valuable than lives lost in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and elsewhere; that the motives of the 9/11 attackers had nothing to do with genuine grievances in the Islamic world regarding American imperialism; and that the U.S. has been justified in the subsequent killing of hundreds of thousands in so-called retaliation.

The observance at Saturday’s football game was no different. A moment of silence was followed by a military airplane flyover; in between, Block-I students chanted “USA, USA.” This was neither patriotism nor remembrance in any justifiable sense, but politicization, militarism, propaganda and bellicosity. The University is a public institution that encompasses the political views of all, not just the most (falsely) “patriotic.” Athletic planners should cease such exploitation for political purposes. They might at least consider how most Muslim students, American or otherwise, would respond to this nativist display; or better, Muslims and others that live their lives under the threat of our planes, drones and soldiers.
The overwhelmingly white, privileged, Block-I students should be ashamed of their obnoxious, fake-macho, chicken-hawk chant, while poverty-drafted members of their cohort fight and die in illegal and immoral wars for the control of oil. University administrators need to eliminate from all events such “patriotic” observances, which in this country cannot be separated from implicit justifications for state-sponsored killing.

What does this have to do with the “thought police”?  Mr. Green gives his apparently unbiased opinion.  His opinion gives me cause for concern on two fronts.  First, is this not America?  Home of the Brave ,Land of Free, Freedom of speech, etc?  We’ve had this discussion before regarding the famous “N” word.  My original thought was Mr. Green if the Muslims don’t want to hear a chant USA!  USA! USA!  Go to a country that doesn’t chant it.  If you are an American Muslim,  you should be chanting too.  You are a USA citizen are you not?  Ergo, (I like that word, sounds so…so.  Snotty)  E. Pluribus Unum, from many ONE!!  
Secondly,  This person  is teaching at a university and does have some control over young minds.  If he is willing to publish an article like this in the college newspaper what in the world is he doing in a classroom!  I don’t want a college professor teaching my grandchildren his personal political ideas.  Educate on the subject you are assigned to teach and leave the politics to the politicians.

Perhaps we should have a “thought” police.  Somebody needs to know what a moron, like Mr. Green is thinking!


GOD BLESS AMERICA (and Mr. Green)

Is this guy truly a teacher of some sort? If the janitor can be a "sanitary engineer" then a "university academic professional" may be the guy in charge of running the Xerox machines in the copy room.

In any event, he's definetly a moron.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
