20 October 2017. XMAS IS ON ITS WAY!

_________________________

Halloween is almost upon us, which means that commercial Xmas is about ready to begin. It begins right after Halloween, but it really doesn’t pick up steam until Black Friday, the day after American Thanksgiving. I call this day “the Black Mass of American Consumerism”. Everything that’s bad about America and Americans gets put on very public display. Every year, one hears about someone trampled to death or mauled by other crazy shoppers. As for me, I avoid malls until after 25 December… I don’t like the hype, the tension, and the angst on display. It’s not the crowds… it’s not the crass commercialisation of a sacred holiday… it’s the joyless and haunted look on the faces of the people. No one really likes Xmas and its ritualised greed, but it seems that most give in to it. Truly… the canned vapid carols and the goofy decorations don’t bother me. It’s the people… their lemming-like acquiescence in something that they don’t truly want to do. Christmas and Xmas are two different things. Welcome the Christ Child into your home… have a family celebration… yes, give a gift or two (or three). Have a JOYOUS day. You don’t have to give in to Xmas. By the way, Santa’s OK (share a cone with Santa, as Kevin Bloody Wilson sang)… he’s no ogre unless you make him one. We’ll all survive the coming holiday blitz. Have a drink and smile.

26 December 2015. Don’t Support the Enemies of Christian Syria! NEVER Vote for Republicans or Neocon Dems

______________________________

All the Repugs support Islamist terrorism and use it as a cudgel in foreign parts. The same is true of neocon Dems such as Chilly Hilly and Butcher Biden. Their “opposition” to terrorism is only a ruse… only the gullible take it at face value. They flog terrorism to take away our rights… look at the TSA Gestapo, need I add anything else? I remember flying during the Cold War… we weren’t searched and planes flew on, without incident. Terrorism is a gigantic lie used to justify government’s encroachment on our liberties. Do reflect on the fact that the US Republican Party is in the lead of such efforts. They’re irredeemably evil and no decent person can have anything to do with them.

Merry Christmas from Syria… reflect on the fact that if you vote for Republicans or support Chilly Hilly you thrust a dagger into these good people’s backs.

That be the truth… a meaty meditation for this day…
