Off the Wall … Out of Bounds … Over the Top … and Worth Considering
The Age of Trumpery continues. The HMO empire has just ordered the GOP to put yet another Obama Care repeal effort into the so-called tax reform bill, which incidentally cuts corporate tax almost in half, greatly reduces the rich family estate tax and only throws crumbs at working families.
Their plan for Obama Care, lacking repeal, is to stop funding it. Work against it. Make it fail. And then blame Obama. The Super rich CEOs at HMOs own the GOP and they keep sending them to destroy Obama Care day after day. They will not stop. And the GOP will do what they're told since the giant HMOs hold countless millions of dollars of campaign and party donations in their pockets.
The simple solution is to vote Democrat now since the GOP has been devoured by the rich and all we see in Congress are the turd piles left over. It's plain dysfunction when most all of them hate their own president and despise the white hillbilly racists who have ruined their party.
I just made these additional comments on Facebook:
There are about five gigantic, money-sucking HMO's and they tell the GOP what to do, leading to years of senseless quixotic repeal efforts. Try it anyway, they said so. Run into the wall. This is destroying their party, though, even as they can't do anything about it. They may as well give these HMO's offices in the GOP complex.
This country is idiotic for turning people's health care into a profit-making business, with the sick people having to pay. When the Constitution says the government should look after the 'general welfare' of the people, that surely applies to life-saving health care. We will be glad to pay for it, if you'll just let our money go to health care, and not a bunch of rich cats making billions in corporate royalty salaries and perks who get between you and treatment.
Insurance premiums do not go to health care. They go directly to HMO's who pay their corporate royalty huge unearned salaries and perks and build profit-driven empires. These companies battle the health care system for the big pot of money that your illness represents to them. Sickness and death are huge money makers for the capitalists who run the country. Your body is a captive market and you will pay through the nose, sooner or later.
PLEDGES AND DREDGES. From all of the hilarious things Trumpery has brought to us, how about this one? The GOP made the maverick non-Republican Trump sign a loyalty pledge to support the other candidate if he lost. Of course, all the others were forced to sign the same pledge, not realizing he was going to whip all of their asses in the white nationalist driven primaries.
What a shock. He did it while acting like a third grader. Jeb Bush must still be in shock.
Out of the 16 other GOP candidates, how many reneged on their pledge? Ben Carson didn't and got a housing job for which he has no qualifications.
They all despise him and so does Ryan, McConnell and their own past presidents. So does Cliff (Recuse Me) Sessions who has the memory of a weasel and the mind of a rat and will get no support from his boss at all. That’s already been shown.
If your party hates you, what's your future? Especially if it's hard for you to read and write yourself, and think you can run everything like always before from the seat of your pants. The nation doesn’t work that way. His pants are blazing from his lies and distortions.
TOP SPIN. An amazing thing about Trump is his ego-fueled spin on all things. He quickly establishes a different reality where he is right and righteous. It’s easy for him. Here’s a spin I imagined he would say when Democrats won important elections in New Jersey and Virginia.
"Sad. If these GOP guys want to win, they need to come to the table. I won the election. Okay? But they don't repeal Obamacare. They don't do tax reform. I'm frankly disappointed I can't get their support. They don’t support me at a cost, you know. And I’m just saying, the voters had their say, and that’s what I’m saying. So that's what happened to them. Disappointing. But, you know what, that doesn't take away from the fantastic job we're doing here. It's truly awesome, unbelievable what we've accomplished in such a short time. I don't think any administration has done nearly so much in such a short time as we have. Unbelievable. Really ... unbelievable."
While Trump has always dabbled in luxury vices like gambling, liquor, fancy air travel, golf clubs, steaks and overpriced restaurants, these have mostly been failures and with some costly taxpayer bail-outs. The real money through the years has come from money laundering, most everywhere in his buildings. He gets a lot of rent for the space too.
There is a huge amount of governmental-business corruption in the world, more money than most of us can imagine, and most all of it requires cleaning up — a bank-anchored paper trail leading to nowhere, places where they don’t pay any taxes or leave any records. Vladimir Putin and his gang are making a fortune in Russia and it all has to go through a network in which Trump is glad to participate, especially since Russia provides him with a lot of credit.
This is the tap root that surely the Mueller investigators will discover, but this net might encompass a lot of people that they don't want to encompass. The issue might become indicting the ones you want and trying to protect others who are of your persuasion. When you open up the money pipeline, no telling you might find in it.
At any rate, the Kremlin has no friends in the US and it is the albatross around Trump's neck that will bring him down. Manafort, as campaign manager, even revised the GOP platform to get rid of Russian sanctions and open up money conduits. How brazen can you get? Investigators should see the edits in the platform when Manfort got his nose in the trough.
I'm doing some new Looney Tunes concepts for the Trumpery Age you might help with. How about the Donald as the new San Fernando Orange, with a toupee mustache? Can we cast Sarah Huckleberry Sanders as Droopy? How about Sean Spicer as Tweety Bird? Bannon as Foghorn Leghorn. How about Munchkin as the Road Runner? Jared Kushner as Ichabod Crane, on loan from Disney pictures. Melania as Pepe LePew. Pence as Elmer Fudd. Mueller as Bugs Bunny .... gripping a big Orange carrot.
THE GUILTY IS US. When will the people of the planet become citizens of it and take control, and quit blaming all of our shortcomings on some Devil or Evil influence? They wail about the super-rich deciminating the population and making us slaves.
Truth is … If there was no international banking system, we would have to come up with one very quick to maintain civilization. And just because these people are rich doesn't mean they're evil. And just because they finance all governments, businesses, universities and charities doesn't mean they want to control all of them. Have you noticed that they don't? Or do you think they do? They want the money and they fight among themselves up there in the higher political and economic echelons.
Discord and animosity exist everywhere, and well beyond the realm of normal banking operations. Check out the religions, they produce a lot of it. Check out the hearts and animal minds of those millions of individuals who want it all at any price. As long as Wealth is worshipped, we will be in the shape we’re in.
That discord will continue inside most churches, it seems, because individuals will and do demand to manage their own sexuality and just ignore church rhetoric — a silliness that places sensuality and sexuality on their sin list.
Fornication is a crude invented word by an evil institution which sought power over every human's genitals, in addition to their minds and spirits.
Intimacy is a loving word for loving people who insist on controlling their own bodies ... and minds ... and spirits and want to become artists in using their genitalia and the rest of their God-given personalities. Sensuality is an art; fear of sensuality is a mental affliction.
Perhaps in the beginning the religions wanted to control craven lust. There was a lot of sexuality in the middle ages, men and women going at it together. They wanted a management program, a matrimonial system for the control of child-bearing within their doctrines. Once marriage was established, anything outside that was condemned as a sin. Who cares about sin? They invented the so-called gospel of hellfire and eternal damnation to make people care, deeply, fearfully. Tithing can make all the difference in the fate of your soul.
Amazingly, their constructed ‘sins’ includes human beings making love with one another. How is it reasonable to make that illegal? Religions have really given us a twisted sense of values.
JUST FUNNY STUFF. Some of my readers say I should lighten up …
The old timer said: Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can’t even get into my own pants, so I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose- fitting clothing, I wouldn’t need the freakin’ class!
Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.
Ever notice that people who spend money on beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets are always complaining about being broke and not feeling well?
Isn’t having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?
Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled.
Let’s face it, the most precious thing we have is life, yet it has absolutely no trade-in value, which doesn’t matter, because we live in our own little world anyway, and that’s okay because everyone knows us there!
I met a woman in the VFW. She said, “If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you’d look all right.” And I said, “If I did that,I’d be talking to your friend over there instead of you.”
I also told another gal about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her breasts. “Really?” she said, “Go on then, try.” But after about 30 seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said, “Come on, what day was I born?” I said, “Yesterday.”
I also saw a hefty woman dancing on a table, and I said, “Good legs.” The gal giggled and asked, “Do you really think so?” So I said, “Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now.”
I saw a very large woman wearing a sweatshirt with “Guess” on it. I said, “Left Tackle?”
We do not quit playing because we grow old. We grow old because we quit playing.
So if you don’t go to church, how can you be religious? Someone asked that.
If you simply open yourself to inner spiritual guidance via silence, prayer, worship, love ... and listen ... then you will begin to channel guidance yourself. Everyone should be their own channeler. Listen to the quiet voice within, and without the intrusive animal mind traits of fear, suspicion and judgment, and you'll be channeling to yourself in no time. When you ask the Universal Father for guidance, what is there to fear or suspect or judge? If it's your own mind that brings in analytical BS, then it should be cleaned up.
There is no 'mediumship' involved in such transmitting and receiving. The mediums are mostly in the church, synagogue and mosque pulpits around the world. They claim a connection to spirit that you don't have, which should make them all immediately suspicious. God is no respecter of personal titles. You are his child, just like the Pope.
When you tend to think that you will get greater spiritual guidance from your minister and church, you should pause to consider that God didn't write any of those books of scripture. And God doesn't 'inspire' any of those people any more than he will inspire you. And God doesn't gift special people with privileged information; he loves all his children and gives you all the information you are ready for per his ascension plan, via the Indwelling Spirit. Jesus added the Spirit of Truth to your mix, which centers on his life example of Spiritual Empathy.
This is what we all need. Some of these human dogma scriptures have proven to be extremely deadly.
I am a long time member of the Teaching Mission within the Urantia movement. We promote times of stillness for communication with Spirit. We have been accused of being old-time spiritist channelers with crystal balls and purported connections with dead relatives. We go to places and hear people channel.
No, we don’t. Our friends within the worship circle receive and share and we are advised constantly of the personal nature of inner spirit communications. After 25 years of lessons, there are only a few groups who still meet, and that's for the social aspects. We have covered a fine curriculum of basic spiritual wisdom.
TR is personal and many of us have learned the lessons well and are practicing them. I am receiving most every morning. And, of course, we have had some really good transmitters where the teachers can flow freely. We can listen too. But it's basically DIY. And people all over the world, connected to religions and organizations or not, are working directly with Spirit. It’s easy. and don’t try. Release to Spirit.
Our naysayers have been critical for years of inner spirit communications and Michael's Correcting Time without any real knowledge of the process, and it's been a great disservice to Urantia Book readers for a long time now. Unless people start working with inner spirit instead of the clownish humans who are trying to run things, then our society isn't gong to get any better. When you go to humans for spiritual guidance you are invariably going to profiteers. They wouldn't be guiding you if there wasn't a profit in it for them. A number of mediums have started their own religions.
Take dictation from inner spirit and you don't have to get involved with mediums who are just purportedly sharing their inner spirit guidance. Why bother with them? Medium middlemen. Upon cursory inspection, you find that they are biased against other religions based on human supposed doctrine, so they haven't really grown up from being infantile. Jesus never wrote anything down. In spiritual matters maybe we should have heeded the lesson. The religionists have written too damned much and some of it has been used to inspire genocides.
We are each one personality, with unique bodies, minds and spirits, and will be contacted in various related ways. In these times, we are virtually bereft of Critical Listening. We can't hear consistently or process logically. This is related to our lack of Critical Thinking as well, an inability to see beyond biases. And then there is our lack of Critical Speaking, greatly retarded in an age of simplistic twitters and political tag lines that replace complete sentences and thoughts with provocative tags. And when we do hear excellent oratory, it's usually a pack of lies.
We are not biblical fundamentalists because the book is a patchwork of flawed and biased information. The Urantia Book is transmitted from what you call the 'heavens' and so it's reliable. The bible is packed with contradictions; there isn't a single one over the UB's 2100 pages and the Life of Jesus with a rich 777 pages.
There isn't a single un-loving thought either. Read it and quit worshipping any of that human dogma that divides people. Ask the Spirit of Truth that Jesus left within us whether you should believe this revelation. If you don't, then just know that all true religion is personal, very personal. We are on a quest to become Spirit. That's evolution, and it works. If you don’t take one path, you will take another, hopefully a good one.
These lives are ours. It's personal. Priority for our earnings is our own family needs. This is why we are here, to create children and families. Religions don't need big budgets and are highly over-organized and over-extended into huge debts to ..... the banks, of course. Gifts should be made in love and not under pressure so they can pay bank interest on a building project.
What is our life’s mission? It can be explained various ways. As far as the development of our minds, it’s a matter of learning to use it. Be a critical thinker and not an emotional reactor. Don’t grab onto one side. Look at all sides.
Define it, and it appears to be a life’s work: “Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.”
