If there is suppose to be a separation between Church and State in America then Churches should not be able to endorse particular political candidates or try to influence their congregants to vote one way or another. Once they do that they pass into the realm of STATE and at that point all of their tax-exempt status needs to be taken away. This one is personal for me because I have no patience for the judgements or rigid dogma of religious people. Their proclamation usually are directly counter to my own. For organizations that are suppose to exemplify the teachings of Jesus, many of them would be surprised to find that their Lord was not a racist nor a homophobe - in fact it was the dregs of society that Jesus would have felt most comfortable with - not the hypocrites in their Sunday best who walked by this sign and said NOTHING and did NOTHING but accept the balloon juice their spiritual leaders were trying to feed them.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
