Marijuana in the Bible

Carl P. Ruck, the scholar who coined the term “entheogen,” is a professor of classical mythology at Boston University, and has researched the history of psychoactive substances in religion for over three decades, working with such luminaries as the father of LSD, Albert Hoffman; entheobotanist Richard Evans Schultes, and mycologist R. Gordon Wasson. On the subject of Old Testament cannabis use he explains: “There can be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion…. There is no way that so important a plant as a fiber source for textiles and nutritive oils and one so easy to grow would have gone unnoticed… the mere harvesting of it would have induced an entheogenic reaction.”"

JUST IN: President Jimmy Carter Releases INTENSE Message Calling Out Religious Hypocrites (DETAILS)

"President Carter spoke about global violence, and more specifically, violence against girls and women. As a conservative Baptist who still teaches a weekly Sunday School class, he may surprise people with his criticism of religion. He is so passionate about the subject that he wrote the book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power”"




The Billionaire Pedophile Who Could Bring Down Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton - The Daily Beast

"For Jeffrey Epstein and his famous friends, the Aughts were a simpler time, when the businessmen, academics, and celebrities who counted themselves among the playboy philanthropist’s inner circle could freely enjoy the fruits of his extreme wealth and connections. Epstein’s little black book and flight logs read like a virtual Who’s Who: Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Larry Summers, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, and Naomi Campbell all hitched rides on Epstein’s private planes. Socialites and distinguished scientists went to visit Epstein’s island in St. Thomas, and cavorted at epic dinner parties at his palatial townhouse—then the largest privately owned residence in New York, as he liked to brag. There, they picked at elaborate meals catered by celebrity chefs like Rocco DiSpirito, marvelled at Epstein’s opulent decor, and noted the pack of very, very young model-types with whom Epstein always seemed to surround himself."




Donald Trump and 'Lolita Express' operator accused of rape in new lawsuit

"The Real Deal was the first to report on a new federal lawsuit against presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, filed on Monday. In the suit, the unnamed plaintiff accused Trump and hedge fund manager/registered sex offender/”Lolita Express” operator Jeffrey Epstein of raping her in 1994 at a party at Epstein’s mansion when she was 13 years old. (The complaint and attached affidavits are embedded at the end of this article.) The Real Deal noted that a similar complaint was filed in California back in April using an abandoned building as the plaintiff’s address, and that case was dismissed due to paperwork issues. The new complaint does reference “her first complaint [which] was filed in California on April 26, 2016.” Trump had previously been accused of rape by ex-wife Ivana Trump during their divorce proceedings."





Why So Many Evangelicals Find Donald Trump Irresistible

 "One way biblical literalism screws with people’s heads is this: Children are taught from a young age that God is perfect—the essence of Love and Truth. But when you look a little closer at the stories in the Bible, it turns out he’s an awful lot like Trump."


I Know Why Poor Whites Chant Trump, Trump, Trump –

I met the man who said those words while working as a bartender in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas. It was a one-street town in Benton County. It had a beauty parlor, a gas station, and a bar where locals came on Friday nights to shoot the shit over cheap drinks and country music. I arrived in Arkansas by way of another little town in Louisiana, where all but a few local businesses had boarded up when Walmart moved in. In Arkansas, I was struggling to survive. I served drinks in the middle of the afternoon to people described as America’s “white underclass” — in other words, people just like me. Across the highway from the bar was the trailer park where I lived. I bought my trailer for $1000, and it looked just like you would imagine a trailer that cost $1000 would look. There was a big hole in the ceiling, and parts of the floor were starting to crumble under my feet. It leaned to one side, and the faint odor of death hung around the bathroom. No doubt a squirrel or a rat had died in the walls. I told myself that once the flesh was gone, dissolved into the nothingness, the smell would go away, but it never did. Maybe that’s what vermin ghosts smell like"

Hundreds plan to protest against Sacramento pastor who praised the Orlando killings -

"More than 1,000 people plan to protest Sunday outside a Sacramento Baptist church where a pastor praised the Orlando, Fla., killings in a sermon.   The protest is being organized through Facebook and is calling on people in Sacramento to gather outside the Verity Baptist Church on Sunday morning to decry the pastor’s praise of the massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub. So far, more than 1,000 people said they plan to attend the demonstration. “It disgusts me that this immoral sacrilegious individual is spewing hatred and ignorance, and is condoning murder to his churchgoers who may not be old enough to see what true religion is instead of the brainwashing he is doing,” the statement read on the Facebook event page"

Instituto Manquehue - Israeli rabbi: Israeli soldiers can rape Palestinian women

Israeli Rabbi Colonel Eyal Qarim of the Israeli Military Rabbinate has permitted to Israeli Jewish soldiers to rape Palestinian women. The permission came as an answer for this question: “Is it allowed in our days for an Israeli occupation soldier, for example, to rape girls during a fight, or is such a thing forbidden?” “The wars of Israel are religious wars, in which they differ from the rest of the wars the nations wage among themselves,” the Israeli Jewish rabbi said."

World’s Largest ‘Fart-In’ Is Planned for Hillary Clinton’s Acceptance Speech in Philadelphia \

"Philadelphia: Cheri Honkala, the leader of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, announced that her group was organizing the world’s largest “fart-in” to be held on July 28 at the Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination. “We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” she said. “We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”"

How the Party of Palin Became the Party of Trump -

 "Donald Trump appeared on the national political stage almost eight years ago. Only then he was called “Sarah Palin.” The circumstances of Palin’s ascent came very differently. While Trump nurtured his fame for decades in the New York media spotlight and won the Republican nomination after a protracted nationwide campaign, Palin was plucked in her political youth from the most remote state in the union and presented to the party as a fait accompli. Having no chance to consider or debate her selection, Republicans defended her unreservedly. What critics saw as dangerous ignorance buttressed by anti-intellectual resentment, conservatives defended as populist authenticity, a noble victim of venal coastal elites."

Trump Repulsively Celebrates The Deaths Of 50 Americans In Orlando Terror Attack

 "Donald Trump hasn’t shown a shred of concern for the victims in any of his tweets. Trump has not offered any plan to stop the violence. The Republican nominee brought up his Muslim ban, but the problem is that his ban would not have applied to the Orlando shooter because he was a US citizen. The Republican nominee has spent the day of the worst mass shooting in American history congratulating himself and celebrating his intelligence when more than 100 Americans have died or were wounded. Donald Trump is behaving like a sociopath, not a president"

How Donald Trump Bankrupted His Atlantic City Casinos, but Still Earned Millions

: "ATLANTIC CITY — The Trump Plaza Casino and Hotel is now closed, its windows clouded over by sea salt. Only a faint outline of the gold letters spelling out T-R-U-M-P remains visible on the exterior of what was once this city’s premier casino. Not far away, the long-failing Trump Marina Hotel Casino was sold at a major loss five years ago and is now known as the Golden Nugget. At the nearly deserted eastern end of the boardwalk, the Trump Taj Mahal, now under new ownership, is all that remains of the casino empire Donald J. Trump assembled here more than a quarter-century ago. Years of neglect show: The carpets are frayed and dust-coated chandeliers dangle above the few customers there to play the penny slot machines"

Border militia co-founder convicted of child molestation in Arizona

"PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona jury on Wednesday convicted the co-founder of a border militia group of molesting a 5-year-old girl but acquitted him of more serious sex charges, court officials said. Christopher Allen Simcox, who co-founded the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in 2005, was found guilty of two felony counts of child molestation and one felony count of providing obscene material to a minor by the Maricopa County Superior Court jury. Simcox, 55, was cleared of three felony counts of sexual conduct with a 6-year-old girl, charges that carried mandatory sentences of life in prison. He faces up to 24 years in prison on each molestation charge at his scheduled July 5 sentencing, prosecutors said."

Dump the G.O.P. for a Grand New Party

The New York Times: "If a party could declare moral bankruptcy, today’s Republican Party would be in Chapter 11. This party needs to just shut itself down and start over — now. Seriously, someone please start a New Republican Party! America needs a healthy two-party system. America needs a healthy center-right party to ensure that the Democrats remain a healthy center-left party. America needs a center-right party ready to offer market-based solutions to issues like climate change. America needs a center-right party that will support common-sense gun laws. America needs a center-right party that will support common-sense fiscal policy. America needs a center-right party to support both free trade and aid to workers impacted by it. America needs a center-right party that appreciates how much more complicated foreign policy is today, when you have to manage weak and collapsing nations, not just muscle strong ones."

The Trump Campaign Is in Full Nuclear Meltdown Mode

"For all the noise that Donald Trump makes, and all the amplification that noise gets from the media, it’s hard to see the campaign infrastructure that presumably exists behind it. Perhaps that’s because, as Trump aides and other sources close to the campaign revealed to NBC News, there isn’t any infrastructure. Instead, the Trump campaign is reportedly composed of a skeleton crew of a few backstabbing staffers unable to coordinate a coherent message about the presumptive Republican nominee’s vision for America."

This Peaceful Deadhead Will Die in Prison w/out Obama Clemency

 "Twenty years without music. That ended up being part of the punishment handed down to Timothy Tyler, a now 47-year-old Deadhead who was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for selling LSD at 25-years-old. He was arrested in 1992 and sentenced in 1994, a period when Congress and newly elected President Bill Clinton were eager to increase the punishments for drug offenders. The tough on crime mentality meant many people wouldn’t blink an eye at locking up nonviolent offenders like Tim, who received a mandatory minimum sentence because of two previous minor drug convictions. Yesterday, President Obama granted clemency to 42 people serving long or life sentences under outdated and overly harsh sentencing laws. It brings his total number of commutations to 348 — more than than the past seven presidents combined. Tim wasn’t on the list. Next month, he will have spent more than half of his life in prison."

President Obama’s Tenure Has Been More “Christian” Than His Critics Will Ever Admit

 "This week President Obama gave a passionate, vulnerable, teary eyed press conference to announce new guidelines for gun ownership. It provided some of the rawest, most authentic expressions of compassion and grief ever shared by a sitting American President. It was also another example of a man’s religion speaking loudly without needing to be referenced at all. You see, faith isn’t real faith until it’s walked out and most people know this. Without a life attached to it all theology is just theory. It’s so often (for both politicians and pew sitters alike) merely flowery language and religious window dressing designed for maximum curb appeal from a distance. But unless and until it shows up in the every day of a person—well it’s worth little more than zero."


These 7 Ridiculous Snake Oil Products Prove Americans Will Buy Anything—Including Donald Trump

 "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public," is how the quotation from H.L. Mencken has come down to us. It’s a paraphrase of a paragraph from an article in the Chicago Tribune, but the part of the quotation that is almost always left off is the most relevant for understanding this year: “No one has ever lost public office thereby.” Donald Trump’s campaign, which has combined the art of the huckster with the willingness of the American public to buy what he is selling is, so far, a confirmation of Mencken’s assumption. Pundits have churned tons of butter in an effort to explain Trump’s appeal. One of the most common explanations offered by those experts who took Trump’s declaration that he “loves the poorly educated,” was to see in that some kind of “new” dumbing-down of the electorate."

‘Anti-Obama’ Diner Owner Who Hates Welfare Recipients Convicted Of Welfare Fraud (VIDEO)

 "Michael Tassone is the owner of the “American Diner” in Liverpool, New York, a small suburb of Syracuse. The diner’s quaint appearance and patriotic name comes with a surprising amount of contempt. Tassone is what you would call the typical American conservative: he lives in fear and hates everything. His diner’s menu is full of clever plate names like “The Obama Plate,” consisting eggs and toast for $3.69 with a tax of $27. Yes, very clever. He also features the “Anti-Michelle Obama Don’t Tell Me What To Eat Or Feed My Kids Burger.” Lots of effort went into making this diner the perfect place for idiots to eat. "

The Pitch

It has occurred to me that some of you think I'm running this hideous website because I have nothing else to do. Well some of you are just too dam smart. You've probably been hurt in a previous relationship. That's so sad,but it's really not my concern. Like mama used to say, "You'll know better next time."

So here's the skinny. You'll notice there's no stupid "Donate to this Site" button, and there's good reason, it goes back to that you're just too dam smart thing.

So what I did was plaster this site with all sorts of cheesy banners promoting every thing from pocket knives, Dickie denim jeans, healthy soy snacks, hemp seeds,creative writing software, St. Croix fishing rods and chartreus soft plastic lizards, to places where you can lose everything, betting on horse races, or where you can get a job driving a truck cross country, hauling Chinese made crap and picking up chicks. Someone said the site looked like I-75 in South Georgia.

When you click on a banner and buy something, I get a ham sandwich. That's all, just looking to eat once in a while.

Now here's a suggestion, before you lose everything betting on some dumbass horse race, or leave the wife and youngans and head on down the road in a Peterbuilt, buy yourself a pair of Matrix sunglasses and one of those R Crumb, "Keep on Truckin," T-shirts to wear to your daughter's soccer game. Your daughter will be humiliated as hell, until one of her friends walks over and says, " Your dad is the coolest dad ever."

Priceless!


Here's a catchy tune that may shed some light on what I'm trying to say.
