BLESSED ARE THE MEEK
Trust in God and have faith. If you know you have been rebellious, ask humbly for forgiveness, and then be kind and loving. Remember that this is man's only freewill choice -- not whether he shall go this way or that way, but whether he shall on the one hand accept his experiences with true love and humility, or whether he will be rebellious and angry, and full of torturous emotion. Seek to grow to Christ-manhood.
The Quiet Mind, the sayings of White Eaglegood day and happy Thursday.
it's a day knee-deep in being unsure of which way to go...
considering I have been MIA since the end of October,
um, me thinks little old gthang has either much to say or nothing.
... from Ferguson to the Mid-term Elections, from ISIL's grip upon the world to Charlie Hebdo...while just this week, we had to endure another State of the Union [6.0]...ugh.
But for levity, if nothing else -- Deflate Gate continues to capture our attention as if nothing else going on around us is amiss. typical, right?
C'mon, Bill, really?
You are really going with the Barack Obama method of sketchy responses --
'uh, duh, I didn't know...I'm shocked!..I found out at the same time you all found out... in all my forty years of football... well, I''ll be...I had no knowledge... I had no idea about any of this...' ?????
Yes, paraphrased and possibly insinuating a daffy Belichick unfairly.
But where, oh where, is somebody shouting out from the chamber, "LIAR!" ?
It's almost as good -- and absurd -- as Josh Earnest's response to Mara Liasson during a recent press pool free-for-all. Just go to Townhall's Conn Carroll, here., for more on that. Or, allow me to save you some time ---
And I guess I am doing my best to try to explain to you what that is," Earnest responded. "The first is, accuracy. We want to describe exactly what happened. These are individuals who carried out an act of terrorism. And they later tried to justify that act terrorism by invoking the religion of Islam and their own deviant view of it."but wait -- there's more!
The second," Earnest continued, "is this is an act that was roundly condemned by muslim leaders. I'm describing to you the reasons why we have not chosen to use that label because it doesn't seem to accurately describe what had happened. We also don't want to be in a situation where we are legitimizing what we consider to be a completely illegitimate justification for this violence. I am not going to criticize anybody who chooses to use that label. I'm talking about the way we are trying to talk about this and we are trying to be as specific and accurate as possible in describing what exactly occurred."oh the games people play.
oh my, oh my, oh my.
But let's not dwell, shall we?
Speaking of titillating responses ----- I found a great piece to read by Josh Rogin, of Bloomberg View, titled, Obama's State of the World, Translated. It is really well done and I think you will enjoy it...so I'm not even going to give you a teaser quote. Just click it and dig it; you can be assured of getting in a few laughs to counter attack the ocean of tears for fears we gained from listening to our Commander-In-Chief's Mission-Accomplished-On-Every-Thang-Take-That-Jack moment.
Clearly, he is living in another America -- perhaps one on another plane -- somewhere between the purple haze mountain majesty and the white hot fury I'll be your pusher-man plains.
Needless to say, the president's radical rebel within has decided to go all in and come out to play. Right on cue.
It just makes all the more to say ....um, uh, more enjoyable???
yeah, yeah, that's the ticket to the daily drills we dabble. let's run with that.
But as far as this day is concerned, I believe I have given you plenty to peruse; think of this as just my pinkie toe tapping the well-spring. nothing more, nothing less. who really knows...
For the truth is, I simply feel deflated in every way.
Make it a Good Day, G
