IT!!~~~~~~~Aaaaeeeeeeiiiioo ~~~~~ ATHEIST …..Me! –
who, according to millions of believers, somebody supposedly dispenses love and a whole lot of Bull$heet about a “hereafter” in an imaginary kingdom called Heaven (Or Hell, if you are especially naughty). The world would indeed be a much better place if there were no such thing as *religion* messing with human beings’ heads !! Ah, but then who–or what–would clueless human beings use as excuses for their rotten behavior towards each other, the gut-wrenching cruelty to innocent animals both wild and domestic……and just about every living thing on this itty-bitty planet that stupid, stupid homo sapiens are so determined to destroy? (Breeding like rabbits and filling up the planet with even more human beings for no reasonable reason…….with the planet’s resources like WATER, FOOD and even FRESH AIR to breathe, slowly but inexorably fading, fading —GONE! and other important *things*going belly-up that we will not be able to function without. Ya think no? These items are slowly but surely disappearing and once those….admittedly……rather important resources are about kaput, so will the human race be extinguished. The non-humans, like, say…..animals?….well, they will already be gone, gone GONE.
But Hey! Don’t worry, be happy……all Washington D.C. mentally challenged “leaders” will happily help the planet on its inevitable death march by chanting their theme song….**Drill Baby Drill**….. What does it matter if precious Arctic Seas wildlife is eliminated forever, who cares if~~no, when another horrifying oil drilling catastrophe occurs…..the Arctic oceans are NOT amenable to human beings charging in and totally devastating that fragile, critical to the whole eco-system up in the frozen tundra (and we do mean frozen…cold beyond belief) — not to mention what damage could occur in the ANWR, the drilling will be close—too close—to America’s last pure National Wildlife Reserve. How sad, how pitifully SAD. America is falling apart!!
My mind, what’s left of it, feels like it’s filled with cotton balls. Dumb, useless cotton balls. But I’ll wake up, I usually do, eventually. Oy. And that is the goofiest intro for this, admittedly, useless “blog” that I hope will be of some mild interest to someone, a few adventurous readers….maybe?… I feel it in my creaky bones, especially in my right knee which is a total mess, but that is another story.
Actually, I could be wrong, but probably not since I am usually right about almost everything, [it's hard to be humble] but I don’t remember any totally stinky times during the years I was aware of what was going on in my country. But then, almost with no warning, everything today is such an enormous, gigantic MESS ! It is really frightening and a tad scary, also. Yeah. It really is. Well, maybe there’s one or two bright spots on the horizon, or whatever, ya think? I admit it. I waste a lot of time piddling around at this infernal machine. I “cyber-shop” (like window shopping “in the olden days”). I pour a cup of coffee and putz around sipping on that while messing around reading political Tee-shirts. One day I wasted more than an hour “reading” cutesy stuff on T-shirts, sweats, whatever……wanna read some of those I read? and liked? —- Nah. Probably not. There’s lots of funny ones, for both sides of the fence. All ritey then, I believe I am finally awake.
Perhaps I am, after all, stretching my luck…… being an eccentric old crone isn’t very interesting to anyone, anymore. Well, I may just have some rag-tag remnants of not-too-boring tales of my days as a “wild child” (T/Sgt L.J. B, USAF)……looking so fine in my impeccably neat Air Force dress uniform, struttin’ down a Wiesbaden downtown strasse in my uniform, and still after all these years — not a clue as to where I was going or what I was going to do that day.
Well anyway, moving right along here. Sheesh I really AM deteriorating faster than I thought. When I started blogging just about 10 years ago, it was so darn much FUN. The kidlet—-(the daughter who is a *grandma* for crying out loud……MY daughter is a grandmother??) GASP I think that means I must then be the GREAT-grandma of this one-in-a-million, exceptionally cute, smart and totally ready to run for president in 2045 girlie-girl—- acquired her first domain then and created an entire tutorial website and called it “Full Moon Webs.com”. It did very well attracting a bunch of novices to the “net” and inviting them in so they could have a personal blogpage, an e-mail account, and claim it as their very own BLOG!!”
It was an extraordinary achievement, she even provided a wide variety of graphics (her own designs) and displays for newbies to use. It was awesome!………In fact it has evolved into a real live business and she has been doing quite well the past few years. The actual business name is – http://ink2art.com. ~~~~Ummm, not that it matters (except to me of course, Hah) but my first blogpage was called Ta-Dah!— “The Mousetrap”
I just happen to have a dog-eared copy of a book titled “The Quotable Atheist” — it is sooo-o-o-o interesting. Not just the quotes in it with a gazillion different musings about atheism but the extraordinarily fascinating list………from A to Z……of people (generally famous names and all that) who snapped out such pithy, funny, (and serious) opinions about Atheism and mostly recognizable by the writers’ awesome intelligence. —- well, maybe not always that awesome, but more brains than most of us. I suppose. Even humans who lived *B.C.* and *B.C.E* (what the helk is that?) had something to say about the invisible entity named whatever was fashionable at the time, and questioned “ITS” existence, just like this 21st century. Imagine that.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* I’ve been thinking….and boy did that hurt!!….if this so-called deity called God in many parts of the world and also other names (is it the same deity with different looks & wardrobes in those other countries?) claim their religion is the only one that their “God” will pay any attention to (no matter how many human beings those weird Arab sects slaughter in *his* name, will that add *Good* points to American politics and force impotent Republicans to stop their manic dream of ruling American women like the Arabs rule *their* women??
