Back to keeping an eye on them..........Why bother doing that?
There has to be people that are fairly informed about them, so that when a Jehovah's Witness comes knocking, they will get at least a smidgeon or two of some facts about themselves that they otherwise will never hear or be told. Some things just need to be pointed out. Occasionally, I intend on doing exactly that right here on this blog.......that way, you will have something to say to them other than "Leave me alone!"
For instance, the Jehovah's Witnesses are very much irritated that Christians wear a cross around their necks. They will go on about how there never was a cross and it was just a pole. They would also say that a true christian does not worship idols or icons or any symbols. What you would want to do is point out how they are a bunch of hypocrites. Look at the nice logo of the Watchtower in the photo above. I would bet anyone that if you show a Jehovah's Witness any picture, such as this one, their eyes would light up and one of the would say "Oh, look! The Watchtower!" Not much of a big deal really.......but you might toss in how some of their "brothers" have been selling "Watchtower" cufflinks and tie clasps on Ebay! Check it out for yourselves.......better yet...have them check it out.
Another little tidbit is that the Jehovah's Witness is big on telling everybody how true christians would never participate in or utilize things or days that have "pagan origins". This is always a fun topic of discussion with these people at the door. Right off the bat, ask them what day it is.......hehehe. Better yet.....ask them what day they hold their meetings at the hall......The Jehovah's Witness cannot tell you what day it is without using the names of the days of the week......each of those names are pagan in origin. While you are at it on the "pagan" things discussion.........chances are one of them is married.........try to notice their hands.....look for a wedding band. Ask them about that. Wedding bands are pagan in origin too. Like I said before, chances are, the Jehovah's Witness has no clue about what they are actually doing....sometimes you just have to point it out to them.
On a far more serious level............their organization has been known to produce some rather sensational articles and pictures in their magazines and books. People need to be paying attention to this stuff........cas in point, the image shown above.........a bit startling to see the image of the twin towers with a rocket and a plane close together............isn't it?........no big deal eh?.......except this image was distributed many years before 9/11 ever occurred. Now some might try to suggest that the image was somehow "prophetic". I do not buy into that one. I do not recall Jesus ever trying to frighten people into following him. What I will say is this........we hear repeatedly over and over about how the "radical" Islamics are responsible for terrorism. We also know that those "radical" Islamics are financed by somebody. The money comes from various assorted places. What does this have to do with the Watchtower? ....well.......consider this.......they are definately in the business of doom and gloom....end of the world stuff......hehehe....it is good for business.....people buy the magazines and books......and the result is a few more recruits and a whole lot more money. They ain't feeding the poor or helping the homeless people.....they ain't got no hospitals.......quite simply....the Watchtower is not a charity in any sense of the word. So where is the money going? It seems to me that it is a great possibility that any business would invest in things that create more business. It would not surprise me if the Watchtower funneled money to the "radical" Islamists to help finance some doom and gloom "armageddon is coming" kinds of events. I surely hope that Homeland Security has been looking carefully at people that they otherwise would never expect.....such as the Watchtower. Oh....and they have a history of such stuff...........it was ole Judge Rutherford, president of the Watchtower that once sent a letter to Hitler........he said that Germany and the Watchtower shared a common enemy......."the United States and Great Britain"!!! Most current Jehovah's Witnesses are not aware of this stuff either.
I hear word that the Jehovah's Witnesses are "studying" another book now.........the "Revelation, It's Grand Cimax Is At Hand" book.....the "red" book. It seems to me they ought to "study" it more often, considering that the majority of Jehovah's Witnesses that I have encountered have only a vague recollection of what is actually being taught to them from this particular book. Because they are "studying" this particular book again..........I shall offer a nice tidbit for you to mention to them if they show up at your door.
Jehovah's Witnesses will tell you that they believe that Jesus is the "Son" of God. They will tell you that Jesus is NOT Jehovah, but that Jesus is "a" god. Well....first off.....that ought to tell ya that they believe in more than one god. They would also tell you that Jesus is Michael, the archangel. Okay....so now Jesus is an angel. He is a god and he is an angel. Hmmmmm........but it gets better folks..........here is what they will NEVER come right out and tell you unless you have been fully indoctrinated into their "system of things"............they also believe that Jesus is Abaddon.....the fallen angel of the abyss in Revelation 9!! This is what they are currently studying!
If you are not Christian....none of this matters to you.
If you ARE Christian.........you now know why you need to keep an eye on these folks.

I cannot explain why it is that there are people that look exactly like other people. Aside from this video being very funny, it turns out that Jonathon looks quite a bit like a certain brother-in-law of mine. It also turns out that his "volunteer" looks extremely like a certain nephew of mine. Its almost scary to see this kind of thing. Anyway, this is in two parts....enjoy!

I have always been a big Kate Bush fan and there came a day when I searched to find other musicians that were similar in voice to Kate Bush. I found Happy Rhodes. Happy should be a huge star, but then again, she is probably too serious about her music and we all know that the record companies could care less about great musicians. Here is Happy, while performing at one of her "house concerts". That's right, she will come to your home and do a show........gotta love it.

We finally got some snow here in Baltimore yesterday!
I got in the car and channel surfed the radio stations while going to
While in line at the checkout in the grocery store, I overheard this hugely obese woman telling the cashier that she is on a new diet plan. The woman must have weighed over 300 pounds! from what I could tell. I noticed the items she had placed on the conveyor belt.............three boxes of Twinkies and six half-gallons of ice cream and ten candy bars! Go figure!
It appears that there are alot of folks announcing that they are running for President.
The only people that truly have a nickname
Jehovah's Witnesses seem to be quiet lately.....

I don't know about you folks, but when I see this picture of our President George Bush with tears running down his cheek, I am reminded of that old television commercial that had an Indian with tears running down his cheek because of people destroying the beauty of our land. It was about littering and littering is not good. When I see the picture above, I know it is not about littering, but something far deeper than that. I understand that he was moved at a ceremony for one of our fallen soldiers, however, my own gut feeling is that those tears are about much more than the fallen soldier. I get the feeling that President Bush knows alot more about things than most of us realize. He has a tough job and you can be sure that our President is informed about stuff that none of us even bother to try to comprehend. Add that to his own beliefs in the bible. You gotta know that Bush is between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, he has to do what he can to try to do something about the terrorist situation even though it may be unpopular to do so according to his political foes....and on the other hand, he most assuredly understands that he does not want to do things in such a large scale that would throw the switch for full scale turmoil across the planet. That full scale turmoil is written about in the bible. So what is he to do?
That full scale turmoil will come soon enough on its own. The antichrist is waiting in the wings. I hope I am wrong, but there are alot of folks that agree with me on this one.
On a smaller scale, yet another sign of the end, occurred at the ignauration ceremony and celebration here in Maryland the other day. Yep, Martin O'Malley, former Mayor of Baltimore, is now our Governor. As if that is not sign enough for us.........one of the speakers at that Ignaural ceremony was this country's newly appointed Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi. Remember, I wrote before how Pelosi was born and raised right here in Baltimore's Little Italy. She is a D'Alesandro. Very prominent political "family". Some would say the D'Alesandro folks were pretty smart....er....knew their constituents rather personally. Well.......yet another sign of our demise came when Pelosi opened her old mug on the microphone announcing that "Martin O'Malley, not only was a great mayor of Baltimore....but he will be a great governor of...............(get this).................CALIFORNIA"!!!!!!!
Jesus God, we are all doomed!
Yet another sign of the end!

Consider the following:
The President decides to send another 20,000 or so troops over to Iraq. Okay.........that sort of stuff is actually a normal kind of event when it comes to wars.....it should not come as any surprise or shock to your system. The problem is how it is reported. It has been repeatedly reported as being a "surge" in troops. A "surge"........as if that is to indicate some sort of negative turn of events. In actuality, it is nothing but what has otherwise been called "sending in some reinforcements". Think of it this way............in your own hometown criminal activity may be on the rise and everybody is thinking "we need more police" to try to put a lid on the problems. So what do the powers that be desperately want?.........more police on the streets! To each and every one of us, THAT makes sense. Likewise, if you are involved in a war of another kind, sometimes you need to send in some reinforcements. NOBODY ever reports that there has been a "surge" of police in our cities.
Also, the naysayers and ultra-liberals that have opposed the nation's efforts in the war on terror, would have you believe that it makes no sense that we have troops in Iraq. They fail to see the obvious strategy involved. They would have you believe that the only reason we went into Iraq was for oil. Remember that one? When that wasn't good enough...they suggested that we went there because of "weapons of mass destruction". Oh I love that one. Now, they whine that there never was any weapons of mass destruction and it was all a scam. Furthermore, they suggest that we had forgotten about the "real" culprit of 9-11, Osama Bin Laden. That's a real winner of a bunch of nonsense right there! Each and every one of us knows another old saying......"Never show your cards", yet there are people that believe our government, in particular, our President, should be showing all of his cards to everyone...including our enemies! This is where I really get irritated. Obviously, there are people out there that would like to believe that the majority of people in the United States are stupid boneheads that couldn't figure their way out of a paper bag. On some days, I might even agree with that thought myself....hehehe......BUT I happen to believe that there are far more bullshitters than there are complete idiots........and, as I stated earlier.......you cannot bullshit a bullshitter.
Nobody in their right mind enjoys the idea of war where anyone gets killed. Unfortunately, death goes hand in hand with war. It is expected. It is unreasonable to expect little or no casualties. People are outraged at every report of the death of a soldier, yet hardly anyone gives a shit that their friends and neighbors are getting killed left and right in our cities and towns on a daily basis. I have heard more about the number of deaths in Iraq than I have about the number of murders in the United States. No outrage. No marches on Washington. No speeches given by fat Senatorial morons. Nothing!
I could rant on and on about this whole issue, but I will not. What I will do is point out the obvious. What is obvious to me also makes sense to me. What is obvious....has never been reported. What makes sense has never been reported. If you are reading this.........you can never say you had never been told the real deal.
The real deal regarding the Iraq situation is this................strategics. Remember when after 9-11, the President told each and every one of us that this "war" would be "bigger" and "longer" than anyone thinks? He wasn't fibbing about that and he has been true to his word in this regard. This "war", he said, was a "war on terror". He never said it was just a war with Iraq. He also said that we had to take it to the terrorists and anyone that supported the terrorists.......on their own ground. Remember that? He said we needed to be on the offensive and not just on the defensive. That makes alot of sense to me. Even a fat idiot couch potato that loves football, would know that his favorite team has no chance of success with only a defense. You gotta have some offense. Okay........having said that......where does that all fit in? What is it that has not been reported?
It makes sense that we have a presence in Iraq. Because of our efforts in Iraq, we now have forces strategically placed in between Syria and Iran. Because of our presence in Afghanistan, we also now have Iran surrounded. You would have to be a moron to not see that we strategically are placed in areas we need to be placed if you are going to participate in a war on terror. You gotta know that the radical Islamists are not real happy about this situation. It has nothing to do with Saddam Hussein. Nothing.
Consider the following.........
Afghanistan is no stranger to war...........how quickly we all forget how long the USSR fought against them and could not come away victorious. We went in there and whooped ass. We did what we needed to do....nothing more and nothing less........and we did it rather quickly.
Iran fought for years and years with Iraq....neither side was able to overcome the other. We invaded Iraq and they ran like chickens. It was quick work, we overtook that regime in record time, with minimal casualties. You can imagine what was going through the minds of the wackos in Iran when they saw that. We have Iran surrounded now.
Syria has it's day coming. They have no protection on their west coast and we have a mighty navy. We are now based to their east and have Israel on their south. You gotta know that they know that they are gonna have to kick up the diplomacy at this point.
So there you have it............strategics. In a war as huge as the President indicated right from the start.........you would have to be a complete moron to think this was some small squabble and that our troops would be removed from that area of the world.
The big question is........why has the reporting been the way it has?
And the answer is.........."never show your cards".

Regarding my comments yesterday:
"As for tomorrow's football game......it should be a good one."
It surely was.
"It will most likely be a low scoring game and a close one at that"
Indeed, it was a low scoring game and a close one.
"......but I am going to go out on a limb here and tell you that since Baltimore bleeds purple now and the team is fully aware of the history in this city and that this particular game means far more to the fans than another step towards the Super Bowl.......I see a complete destruction of the Colts."
Sometimes when you go out on a limb, the limb breaks........hey......I am a Ravens fan....I gotta say stuff ike that!
"The Purple Palace will be extra loud and that make it difficult for Manning to call his shots at the scrimmage line."
Oh it was extra loud indeed.....and I am sure Manning had a tough time calling his shots. In fact, he didn't make very many of his usual shots to people such as Marvin Harrison.
Of course, I had predicted a final score of Ravens 30, Colts 20..........unfortunately that did not happen. the final score was 15-6 in favor of the Colts.
I am not ashamed to admit to defeat. We had a great season.......and we will be back at it again later this year.
As for the Colts..........Congratulations! You can keep the name another year......hehehe. Good luck with your next game............BUT wait just one minute!.........let's not forget the Unitas Curse!
One should always have an ace in the hole......hehehe.
Friday, January 12, 2007
There is no question that Baltimore does not get any respect from the NFL. Even the football commentators tried to ignore us all year....again. We shall see what they all say after the Colts get their deserved drubbing. The stakes ought to be higher. What could be better than to completely settle the sad history of the Colts? I suggest that if the Colts win, they can keep the "Colt" name.......and if they lose, they would have to rename the team to something else and retire the Colt name once and for all. Baltimore doesn't want the Colts name back, we are in love with the Ravens now........but the Colts name will forever be associated with Baltimore, like it or not, and the folks in Indianapolis deserve a name of their own without having to lug around the Baltimore Curse. Curse?........you betcha! It has been said that Indianapolis will never win a Super Bowl, no matter how good a team they put on the field, because of the Unitas Curse. Johnny Unitas knew what was right and he refused to allow his legacy to be associated in any way with the City of Indianapolis. It wasn't to slight or shame the fine people of Indiana.......it was because Unitas was a decent man and knew that the history of the Colts should never be shared with those that never had anything to do with it.
You might say.....well......the Ravens are the Browns, blah, blah, blah. Actually, Art Modell did things the proper way. He moved his team and changed the entire name.....completely dissassociating it from Cleveland. Cleveland got to keep their historic name "Browns" and the NFL did right by them and managed to make sure they got a team to continue using that name. The NFL, in a flagrant display of disrespect for Baltimore fans, permitted the Colts name to leave Baltimore instead of demanding that Irsay leave the name behind and start anew. In a perfect world........Baltimore would still have the Colts. Some might say "get over it!" We have......but there will aways be a sour taste in our mouths because of the lack of desire, by the powers that be, to make things right for the fans.
I have spoken with people from Indiana. The majority of those I have spoken with, would have no problem having their own name for an NFL team and giving the Colts name back to Baltimore. As for Baltimore...........if the name was returned to us.......we would keep it where it belongs........in history......and a damn good history at that. We have the Ravens now and Cleveland still has its Browns...........let's fix it the rest of the way.
As for tomorrow's football game......it should be a good one. It will most likely be a low scoring game and a close one at that......but I am going to go out on a limb here and tell you that since Baltimore bleeds purple now and the team is fully aware of the history in this city and that this particular game means far more to the fans than another step towards the Super Bowl.......I see a complete destruction of the Colts. The Purple Palace will be extra loud and that make it difficult for Manning to call his shots at the scrimmage line. Our defense will be bloodthirsty on behalf of the fans....so here you go........

My followers always look up to me. They know who the boss is.
Meet my followers..........
I wouldn't know what I would do without Chico. He is not just a follower, but a buddy.
I often wonder what these two dogs would say if they could speak.

Yep.......none other than that fat slob, Senator Ted Kennedy D-Mass. As you may or may not know, President Bush is supposed to offer up an address to the nation tonight regarding the troop situation in Iraq. Predictably so, Tub Kennedy had to get some media attention to his disdain for our troops by announcing that he has initiated legislation to prevent the President from increasing any money to support our troops. It is obvious to me that Ted Kanhedrink wants to control our country. The same fat drunk that couldn't get elected President when he tried. Ted...........Go away!
Yep.......the Moron Of The Week is Senator Ted Kennedy. What a fat slob! He should be ashamed of himself. Ask yourselves this one question..........."What exactly has Senator Ted Kennedy actually done for this country all the years he has been in office?" Maybe we should adopt his idea and apply it to his fat rump.........No more funding for drunken, fat, senatorial morons!

Every once in a while you discover a song that is so well written and composed that you could swear you had heard it before. This is one of them.....for me. In case you wondered, the song is about the blues.....and this blues is shared by an opera singer and a blues singer. Fantastic!
One of my all-time favorite songs.

- It is January in Baltimore. It is Winter and the tulips in my garden have popped up.
- Trees have buds on them...........cherry blossoms are starting to bloom in D.C.
- There have been more weeks in the past two months than the number of times I have had to wear a jacket or coat.
- Flocks of birds are flitting around as if they are confused. It's like they have no idea whether or not to fly south or north.
- For years and years, I could look out the back windows of my house and watch the sun rise over the rooftops of the homes the next street over. The past year or so, the sun no longer does that......it rises much farther to the left. For many years I could also watch the sun set by looking directly outside the front windows of my house. The sun's rays would beam right on into the house. Not any more........now I have to look up the street on the left side to see the sun set.
- We had a bush in front of the house that would always be covered with bees for most of the warmer months. We decided to cut the bush down because, for some reason, the bees were replaced with flies. It was terrible because those flies would always manage to get into the house each time we opened the door.
- Every day at 6 p.m., it feels like it is 9 p.m. I am not the only person that has noticed this.
- The weather has been spring-like and the forecast for Baltimore on Saturday is Sunny and 77 degrees!
- I knew that something was up when it was reported that Central Florida had a snow flurry.......and that was before anyplace else in the USA saw snow.
- NASA, after years of abandoning all notions of any further visits to the Moon, suddenly, out of the blue.....announces that they are planning a physical presence on the Moon. Very Interesting!
I do not know what is going on.......but something is up....and it's gettin' downright weirder and weirder. I am beginning to wonder if maybe the earth's axis has shifted a bit and they ain't telling us about it.

That's right Pat.........you might wanna stop that ridicuous squinting and take a peek at your hand once in a while. Whatever has been "communicating" with you couldn't even get a job at a race track selling brochures of "guaranteed picks". Furthermore........if it hurts so much to pray that your face shows extreme pain.....you might just be praying to something you ought not pray to. Personally, I find prayer to be painless and easy.........but I suppose if I thought that maybe a million or two morons would send me a few bucks because they might believe that I was some sort of "channel" of communication with God, I could force myself to squint rather often.
If ole Pat keeps this up, I might have to give him the Moron Of The Year Award. In the meantime, he gets the Moron Of The Week Award.
Now picture this.........how will I give out a couple million Moron Of The Week Awards to the idiots that support Robertson and fall for his bogosity?
I could go on and on and point out how ridiculous Robertson's shenanigans are......but then again.....there will always be people that also believe that wrestling on TV is real.
'Til next time..........
