It was God’s Plan, Right…

I don’t normally comment on what is in the news but this I could not just let slip by. In an interview with reporters George Zimmerman said that it was God’s plan for what had happened that night. More stuff has happened in this world in the name of GOD when it comes to hate and crime. You don’t hear that when people are saved, you don’t hear that when people win the lotto, you don’t hear that when a person swerves and misses a dear so why in all the names of the gods and goddesses do we hear it said for crap like this. If you are following a person at night or out of watch and someone in the shadows spooks you or attacks you how in the hell is that the plan of some god? Get real, it was your own hand that pulled the trigger and not that of some god. It was you that was the person to pull the gun out of your pocket and not some god that you can blame. It was your actions and not that of some god that caused the problem and that of the other person that was involved.

Interesting Phone Call Today

Interesting phone call today right as I was preparing for a review for you all. I was contacted by a SEO company to have my purchase from them a gorilla marketing package from them. They told me that in exchange for $79 they would rewrite my title and meta tags, submit my site to the major search engines of Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL and other websites to give my site more exposure. For any that have found this site you know that we have exposure in all of those search engines and they said that up to 100 more websites they would submit to. Some of those sites use the indexes of the others for their search results. How interesting of them to suggest that they would do this for me when that is what I have done and still do to make sure that you know when there are updates on the site.

Journey Of Life

You always hear about people wanting to hurry up and get someplace. They want to get to the end of a game, get to the end of dinner, get to the end of the road, get to the end of just about everything, sometimes even sex. Why in the hells would you want THAT to end soon. I can tell you I want that to last as long as it can. Why would you not want anything to last as long as it can, that is the point of a journey.

Think about it this way, when you play a game it is supposed to be for your enjoyment and you should want to enjoy it for as long as you can. Why would you want your enjoyment to stop? If you finish the game or anything for that matter, you get a rush and then it is over. While you are in the game you are pulled this way and that, you are challenged and you are thinking about what comes next and how you might be able to over come it. The same is true when reading a book. When I get to the end of a book that I like I am disappointed when it ends, just like the previous activity mentioned earlier. I want things to be enjoyed as long as possible before they have to end. The same is true about life.

Sniglet of the Day : April 2

This entry was posted in Satire, Sniglets by Cleave on

Sniglet Of The DayEventitis (event-eye-tes) – The feeling or state of mind that you are in after going nonstop away from home for several days.

You see this a lot with groups like the SCA and with people that do Medieval Fairs and fantasy festivals. You even see it with regular event goers and business people that travel a lot, especially if they spend a lot of time outside. It is that feeling of complete lethargy and tiredness that you just can not explain. It is even worse if you are camping in an area that has many fires going and lots of libations that are free flowing. For several days you are in it even when it rains or snows. Usually you have rain one day and then a scorching sun the next to really make the mugginess set in. At the time you are not paying much attention to it but when you finally get home it hits you hard the next day. Even worse if there were a lot of fires.

News And The Economy And Politics

We are seeing more and more on the news lately that everything is getting better. We see the DOW almost hit 13,000 and they say that things are getting better. While it might be getting better for the rich it shore as hell is not getting better for the over 50% of Americans that are in poverty We hear how jobless claims are falling but how much of that is in the fact that people are just plain giving up when there are no jobs to be had. Sure things are getting better if you live in the bubble that the greedy inconsiderate rich live in. For them everything is hunky dory and they could give a damn what you or I might think or actually have to deal with. So is the economy getting better? That depends on your perspective and your wallet or pocketbook.
