This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Started this blog yesterday on a story but didn't post it, then last might tuned into Hagmann for the Stan Deyo Night, and Doug Hagmann spent a good 45 minutes doing an absolutely excellent analysis of what I was writing about.  He who hesitates is lost.

Wow, anyone who thought those Christians who were warning against the coming persecutions as being conspiracy nuts of some sort, take a seat and apologize.

The Houston mayor has sent subpoenas to over 400 Christian pastors demanding they turn over copies of all sermons related to the topic of homosexuality.

Among those slapped with a subpoena is Steve Riggle, the senior pastor of Grace Community Church. He was ordered to produce all speeches and sermons related to Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality and gender identity.
The mega-church pastor was also ordered to hand over “all communications with members of your congregation” regarding the non-discrimination law.
“This is an attempt to chill pastors from speaking to the cultural issues of the day,” Riggle told me. “The mayor would like to silence our voice. She’s a bully.”
Rev. Dave Welch, executive director of the Texas Pastor Council, also received a subpoena. He said he will not be intimidated by the mayor.
“We’re not afraid of this bully,” he said. “We’re not intimidated at all.”


Does that chill you to the bone?  The local mayor - and by the way - what the hell has happened to Houston?  Houston use to be one of the toughest most cowboy conservative cities in the nation, Dallas with an attitude.  Urban Cowboy and all that.  Now they have a lesbian mayor elected 3 times who is going to stomp down on churches who preach what is in the Bible because she disagrees with it?  Why don't they just change the name of Houston to San Houstansisco?  Jeesh.

But here you have it.  I think a long time ago, I made fun of some study where the reporter committed statistical fraud.  It showed some extensive study in the US and what percentage of people were gay, lesbian, trans, and whatever else there is.  The numbers for each were below 4%, like 3.2%, 3.5%, 2.2% etc and then the author added them all up to prove that over 10% of the population was perverted,  though those were not her exact words.

The point is, adding those numbers up and claiming over 10% is like adding all the batting averages of each starter on a baseball team and claiming the team is hitting 1.6549 - it doesn't work that way.  In fact, you can't even add them up and then divide by the perversion stratifications and get an average.

So basically, what you get is the whole gay/les/trans/whatever population of this country is around 3-4%.  But the other 96% is being held hostage to the 4%.  We cannot dare speak out or disagree without being subject to a hate crime, re education classes to teach us to be 'tolerant' and acceptant of such behavior.

How in one lifetime, mine, has homosexuality gone from a mental illness to Christianity being the mental illness?

Now, before the hate police come looking for me trying to imprison me or get me fired or prevent me from writing, let me stress this again.  I don't care who slept, poked, porked, or cuddled with who last night.  I'd greatly appreciate you not telling me.  As long as it's not with a child, I don't care. Keep it to yourself.  I don't even mind the legal civil union thing because I do think a couple of guys or gals who lived together for 20 years or so should have some legal rights in the relationship.

But it is a sin.  I'm not cutting it out of my Bible.  So is stealing a sin, which is why I despise Goldman Sachs and other such entities that are robbing the american people blind.  Murder is wrong, which is why I despise Numb Nuts for letting all these diseases come into our country.  Fornication is wrong, oops, never mind that one, guilty as charged, well, not any more, bankrupt bald headed middle age men are not exactly high on the sex appeal thermometer unless things have changed - should really read People once a year at least.

If the mayor of San Houstansisco gets away with this, it will start happening everywhere.  Every pastor that got one of those should burn them in the pulpit this Sunday, then give a fire and brimstone sermon about sin, shame, and redemption in Christ, and send the video to the mayor's office.

So, anyways, that was the blog not posted yesterday.  But let's move on.  Ebola is now officially out.  Seems another nurse in Dallas has it, a nurse who between exposure and getting the disease flew from DFW to Cleveland and back to DFW - actually, might have been Love Field on Frontier, not sure now.  And the plane was used 5 times afterwards before taken out of service.  When she flew back to Dallas, she was running a fever.  Everyone in the airport, everyone the flew on the plane, everyone that flew on the plane afterwards and everyone in the airports where that plane landed and departed can now be carrying the virus.  It is loose and now it's only a matter of time before it's time to barricade yourself in your home, no school, no work, no church, no stores, and wait it out.  Water goes from faucet to pot, drop of chlorine, thru the filters, into bottles.  Got about 3 more days to prep for it, shop at night, late, when stores are empty, no more fresh fruits and veggies.

Meanwhile, on the lighter side, globalism has now brought a new mosquito to southern california.  It's the one that carries all sorts of diseases like yellow fever, dengue. Sleep well my friends, life is about to change.

Golden country your face is so red
With all of your money your poor can be fed
You strut around and you flirt with disaster
And never really carin' just what comes after

Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn

And the time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
Before we leave we must make a stand, oh

Mortgage people you crawl to your homes
Your security lies in your bed of white foam
You act concerned but then why turn away
When a lady was raped on your doorstep today

REO Speedwagon
