The real problem with the cartoonists who insist they have to exercise their right to insult certain people is that when the terrorists come after them, the cartoonists escape and it’s innocent bystanders who get killed. And cities like Paris and Copenhagen spend many thousands of dollars repairing the damage or catching the bad guys so these childish cartoonists can moon anyone they choose. Yes, they have the freedom to write or draw what they want, but that doesn’t mean you are not responsible for the damage it does. It’s also curious that these freedom cartoonists never write anything derogatory about atheists or humanists, just the religious.


 

Bob: “Adam, Your the best mentor ever! When I grow up, I want to be just like you!”

Adam: “Then who would I be?”

Dialog from a recent episode of Lab Rats on Disney XD

Good point, Adam. If someone decides to be just like you, than there would be no need for the real you anymore. Fortunately that can’t really happen because of a simple catch: If Adam is being himself, and Bob tries to be just like him, he automatically fails because Adam is not trying to be just like somebody else, he is being himself. Of course, you can imitate one aspect of another person, such as a business plan they follow to build a successful business, but that is not being “just like” them.

It’s good to see that Walmart is raising their minimum wage in all states. The publicity on this, however, is exagerating when it claims they are giving employees a twenty percent raise. The truth is that because many states already have a minimum wage higher that the national one, only a few thousand employees will be getting a twenty percent increase but most will get somewhat less. Still, it is a step in the right direction. Continue reading “Random Thoughts 2-22-2015”

There is a story in the news of a seven-year-old girl who survived a plane crash that the rest of her family died in. She managed to free herself from the wreck and make her way to one of a very few occupied houses in the area. Everyone is talking about this as a miracle and can’t understand how she had the presence to stay calm under the situation and find her way to help. While the term miracle is not misused, this is not as surprising to those of us involved in spiritual enlightenment as it is to the materialists. We know that we all have great powers buried within us that an be awaken by working towards it, or by a traumatic event as happened with this girl.


 

Another attack by Islamic terrorists, this time in France against a French magazine that has posted cartoons considered sacrilege by some in this faith. It is really sad that no matter how many times they are proven wrong, terrorists keep thinking they can force their warped beliefs on other through violence. Although I do think it is inappropriate to poke fun at anyone religious beliefs, killing people is not the answer, especially when the individuals killed are not directly responsible for the offense. And the many peaceful and responsible Muslims in the world need to strongly condemn this type of behavior or more and more people will start to believe that they secretly approve.


 

Just a gentle reminder that I have eBooks available on Amazon. Go to my “Book, etc.” page for details.


 

Is anyone really surprised that one of the first things the new congress tried to do is cut funding for disabled people on Social Security?

Since I had another birthday this past week, I decided to do some old jokes.

  • I’m so old, when I was a kid rainbows only had five colors. They added orange and indigo when I was a teenager.

  • I’m so old, rocks call me gramps.

  • I’m so old, my first laptop was a stone and a pointed stick.

  • Forget TV! When I was born, they hadn’t invented farming yet!

  • I’m so old, when I was born the Sahara desert was a rainforest.

Enough of that. Actually age is just as much a matter of how you think and how well you take care of yourself as it is when you were born.


I decided to design new covers for my two old eBooks since I have a much better photo editor now. I think this design looks much better.

In a way, I feel bad for Malasian Air with the latest plane crash, although this one was apparently shot down. I can remember when Eastern airlines was the largest operating in the Eastern part of the country. Then three or four of their jets got hijacked to Cuba at the height of that crime fad. As a result, people stopped flying Eastern and the company went bankrupt. Of course, we do have to wonder if Malasian Air has some bad karma in their history.
