August 04, 2010

Grasping at Any Straw

August 4, 2010, will always be the date I remember for a major milestone being reached.  I'm sure Alex Rodriguez and every same-sex couple in California would agree with me that, indeed, this is a red letter day because today was the day that an allegedly sympathetic character on One Life to Live demonstrated his worth and incredibly appealing personality by heroically...

Nun

Coleandnun

Getting up in the face of a nun.  That's right, getting up in the face of a nun.  Oh Cole, if only a man as dreamy as you would have my back!

Of course St. Anne's is probably the least protected and most dangerous treatment center for the allegedly criminally insane that has ever existed -- anyone can walk in and talk to anyone.  They just can't use the phone!

It's true, I was speaking somewhat disparagingly recently about Melissa Archer's performance lately, but today she brought it while telling John about the pregnancy. When he told her he didn't think he could handle the idea of tragedy regarding a child of his again, she broke my heart a little.

Natalie

And for a moment I was even excited -- it really would be something brand new on a soap for a pregnancy to be announced (to the "preferred babydaddy" anyway) and to have him actually not be thrilled.  But of course it only took one scene to learn that while he's worried, he's still over the moon and totally ready!  Of course.  Of course he is, since Natalie is in fact lying to him that he is certainly the father.  It is beyond me in every way why she can't just tell him she had a random one-night stand before they got back together and she's just not sure.  But instead, we have her assuring a man who just lost a child that he has another on the way.  Lucky for Natalie and for the audience, he never really seemed all that bummed about Marty's miscarriage.

Kristen Alderson (Starr) and Brittany Underwood (Langston) have always sounded like they have some sort of adenoid issue, especially Underwood.  But today it was like a battle of the allergy attacks. 

Starrlangston

Really, if you're boycotting the show right now, you really have to check out today's episode.  Kristen Alderson clearly is working through a nasty cold, so more power to her, but there could be a drinking game that goes along with how many M's sound like B's and how many N's sound like D's in a scene between these two.

Did I mention that Eli is really, really, super-duper evil?  'Cause he is.  Extra, crazy, intense evil.  He gets more and more smug about his evil ways every day, too.

Smugeli

Matt Walton really is rocking this, as much as I hate it, and his eyebrows are like their own acting class.

This is the little space in which I ought to comment on the David/Dorian subplot (in which now apparently even dayplayer waitstaff at the bar know that Dorian and David really love each other and won't admit it), or how awful they're making Blair look with all her proclamations about how Eli is wonderful and she's finally going to grab hold of happiness.  I ought to.  But that shit can suck it.

Destiny out.

Geez Louise!

I can never get on the same page with you about Natalie. I thought MA was great, but Natalie should not be so scared of John. I don't get why any woman cries or gets nervous over what McBain may think. I mean the guy had unprotected sex along with her and she's acting like SHE did something to him. He makes every woman he's with insecure. I guess John being brought into this has put a damper on it for me. If I was Natalie I would have sauntered into his office, told him everything, and if he didn't like it well then that's just too bad.

P.S. I want Blair to be right about Eli just so that Kelly could be wrong. Kelly is annoying the bejesus outta me.

I wanted to leap into the TV and smack Cole for the way that he spoke to the nun. Cole is a bully!

Natalie. I agree with Knope, Natalie should have told John the truth and made him wait it out with a paternity test. Besides, I want the baby to be Brody's!

I love your enthusiasm for this show. I'm so glad you're writing on here!

Knope, I'm not sure where we're not on the same page. I think Natalie should be honest and tell him it might not be his; I have no idea why she won't. Not only does this hurt HER, it could hurt him too -- essentially he could "lose a child" all over again right away. Not that I really care about John since his version of grief is sucking his cheeks in a little further than usual and glancing in the other direction.

If John's not okay with the fact that Natalie slept with another man while John was still in a relationship with Marty and John/Nat had not yet reunited, then that's John's problem. That would be ridiculous. I get why she doesn't want Jess to know, but keeping it from John is silly.

THANK YOU!!! I have ALWAYS gotten annoyed listening to either of those twits due to their seemingly constant stuffy noses, omg. I changed the channel many a time over it.

Wait, did that sound shallow?

Matt Walton and his eyebrows... ah me. I want everyone to be wrong about Eli... especially Eli! And especially when he kisses Blair's neck.

Woe is me.

I couldn't listen to the Starr-Langston convo because I was just waiting for one of them to blow their nose. Also, would it kill Starr to actually call her mother about her engagement?

Seriously. Will Starr actually DIE if she contacts her mother in any way? Because I'm beginning to think that's the case. Shouldn't Starr be vaguely interested in the fact that her mother got engaged?

Maybe they both snort coke in real life or something.

This is the meaning of life. The meaning of life is a very complex concept, and I can continually list details and explain the god's positioning, but it ultimately becomes counterproductive and a distraction that is a total waste of time.
Rather than try to understand how the gods conduct business and manage Planet Earth you should have faith, be devoted to doing the right thing, being a better person and strive to achieve the goal of repairing your relationship with the gods through attonement.

The gods are very conservative, the Republicans are the morally superior political party, but the gods have confused the enviornment by ensuring a sufficient combination of good AND evil in every entity, so no matter which side you allign with you incurr evil and get into trouble with the gods.
In this enviornment you have to make progress just to keep pace.
Republican's two primary traditional elements of evil are enviornmental disregard in favor of profit, illustrated with the 2010 BP fiasco in the Gulf of Mexico. The second is warmongering. Too often the gods sell people on war as "earning" when in reality it hurts everyone involved, even those against the war, for we will all pay for the sins of our leaders. The blood spilled is on all of our hands and is a price of being a citizen of the United States. This is poetic because due to the sins of your former lives you have lost the priveledge of motherland and have been banished to this land of enhanced temptation and increased evil, for which you will all lose:::The United States is the ghetto of Planet Earth.
Another new element of Republican evil is corruption. We will experience Democratic corruption, but normally this occurs on an individual level. With the Republicans it is industry-wide, global, and institutionalized. For example, W's Republican administration continued banking deregulation, allowing for the banking crisis we all paid for with the bailout that exploded the national debt. Whether the S&L crisis, junk bonds or this banking/economic crisis the Republicans are corrupt and steal on a macro/global basis, taking us to finanicial crisis and eventually economic collapse upon default the the devaluation of the dollar.
Reverse positioning:::This is an act of good on the god's part. "Contentment never motivated anyone". People have lost their way, pacified by the wealth they experinece in their lives. Satisfaction in life defeats the urgency needed to achieve sucess and move on past Planet Earth.

"Germans?" Nazis were the good guys.
Without the Holocaust they would have won the European Theater and protected its residents from the wicked effects of Californication (liberalism, counter-culture), originated in the belly of The Beast. They woudln't have experienced communism, superior to the dictatorship which would have ocurred had they won, but they would have sheltered the Europeans from the mind-poisoning effects of porno and Faces of Death, as China does for its people.
Now Western Europe has great disfavor in comparison to the east, so there would have been great deterioration of this protection, especially in the most disfavoered countries, like England. But many would have experineced this protection for the additional 50 years, until Ronald Reagan spent them into submission with the national credit card (debt) like they did communism.
Western Europe didn't have the favor necessary to make this happen and the gods used the Holocaust to ensure failure. But it is better than being the doomed preditory mongrol shit in the United States.

The gods claim some supernatural event will occurr when I pass, a "Star of Bethlehem" type of incident.
Perhaps, but I think we already realized it that day on Ocean Beach, witnessed by thousands. "West Coast." Quality clues are hard to come by.
This, Boss and TSUSHOGO are about as good as the clues get. The gods aren't very generous. Some people learned but those people were going to learn anyways. Most readily discounted this pittance in the face of the god's overwhelming positioning.

The gods offer clues to the people in many ways. Naturally one way is the Bible.
Genesis offers a clue about apples as a tool of temptation, a warning to avoid this fruit.
They released a story on CNN about arsenic in apples and apple products. Incidentally, during the story they mentioned there was an apple arsenic scare 30 years ago, so this wasn't the first time the gods sent this clue. Much like Halloween, apples are an early corruptor of young children, being fed all manners of apple products.
They sent the same clue with mercury and fish.

Just as the Catholic church was used to spread Western patriarchy, so did the gods use them to destroy cultures around the world, force Africans into bondage and create this evil known as the United States of America.
Creating religious discontent, which the gods controlled through the Church, as largest landowner in Europe, they controlled the thrones, and dictated the promotion of political policies which created political and social discontent, sending flocks of Europeans into colonizing the New World.

THE WOMEN IN A "NORMAL" FAMILY (non-masculinized/male charecteristics) ARE YOUR "HOLY PEOPLE"!!! THEY ARE YOUR BEST INTERFACE WITH THE GODS!!!
Their role throughout history has been to communicate the wisdom the gods grant them because of their favor, and once communicated it allows the entire family to progress when reincarnated. Effectively acomplishing this task may buy them a quality opportunity to ascend in their next life depending on other factors.
What about fucked up families where the man submits and the woman is masculinized? When the woman has adopted too many male charecteristics/behaviors nobody receives the wisdom so necessary for progress to be realized and the family remains near stagnant for that generation unless some epiphany is experienced.
Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand the proper way to live despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents fulfilling this role the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship with the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that, decreasing the god's role in our everyday lives (medicine cures sickness, drought/irrigation and the family farm, etc).
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The gods use all their tools as temptation. Much like Artificial Intelligence misleading people into the concept of "earning", their "clone hosts" promoting The Beast's Californication agenda through popular culture, so too are the god's prophets used in the capacity of temptation. Like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust. They used this Situation to bury Japanese atrocities. The gods never committed despite tens of billions in mass media, product development and natural disasters/tragedy, so they will enjoy the freedom they positioned into the Situation and CHEAT me out of everything, including my title as prophet.
The gods selected their prophets, used their powers to make it happen, abandoned their prophets and left them stranded to die.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for a chance for the disfavored, for justice, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led with "1000 years with Jesus on Earth". In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free cocaine (space coke), etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity and worship of their false god, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry throughout the course of history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new colonist poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.

Consistant with "reverse positioning" understand the REAL Second Coming would equate with The Matrix's Anti-Christ, the fake battle of good and evil which will come at the end.
Understanding how they use the political environment to redefine people's value system, realize anyone who speaks of the old world and its ways will envoke hatred. So when/if the Anti-Christ comes along speaking of reverting back to what liberalism would consider regressive and unfair, it may be the only hope to salvage the god's favor and buy more time rather than begin the 1000 year clock. The fake Second Coming will feed into this political enviornment.
Also consistant with "reverse positioning" recognize the gods will offer a REAL Anti-Christ, also known as The Beast. I have addressed these issues in years past::::
The gods will offer clues throughout every dynamic of life. Geographical features on the world map is yet another:::The benevolent "Man in the Moon" is a clue suggesting your potential in the eyes of the gods. Until then, the gods must test our worthiness, temptation reflected in the "dark side" of the moon, a side we never see.
The Beast is not a person, as the xtian Bible would suggest. It is a place:::The San Francisco Bay Area. And it refers to the socio-political poison the region exuded in the latter 20th century which promoted indecent behavior among the people and caused rapid deterioration of their values and subsequently their favor among the gods. This decay spread to other states and countries, fulfilling the region's role as The Beast of the Apocalypse.
Another feature which the Gods offer as a clue is very foreboading. Mt. Zion is a mountain to the north of the eye of The Beast Diablo and one which has a working quarry at its base. Consistant with the decay we experience in society, Mt. Zion is being eaten away, slowly stripped of its resources, until one day paradise will be a mere shell of what it once was:::The longer you fail to repair your relationship with the gods the lower your benefit "ceiling" falls, including how much time the gods grant you.

Forgiveness aside because it is bullshit lip service, the price of experiencing this modern societal decay is the revision down of potential time received. Because of these factors those who participated have experienced a lowering of the benefit ceiling that was in place. Whereas centuries ago they were eligible for immortality, theoretically, now that potential has dramatically lowered because of their wicked, immoral behavior of the last 50 years. You may work on your relationship with the gods and even repair it, ascending in some future life. But because you fell for such evil temptation in the 20th & 21st centuries you won't be around nearly as long as your chaste, pure antecedent who ascended centuries before.

Your kids think you're not real just as you thought your mother was a fake. Accept loss. You're not going anywhere.

TO attempt to remedy chronic problems you should pray nightly, go back to your place of worship. Only by doing the right things will the gods allow improvement, and only through attonement will they allow progress. You know all the evil you've committed in your life. Observing your parent's issues will help you understand what you've done in a prior life, for the gods reincarnate based on this legacy.

"Fuck religion, it's full of shit." Something wrong with every major religion.
"Judism?" I suspect all factions of Judism praise Moses for freeing them from slavery. This is a fine place to start:::Contentment never motivated anyone. The goal is to progress, to move beyond Earth, and anything that motivates someone to actively work on their problems is a blessing.
If still oppressed they'd be like the Egyptians or the Lybians:::They'd see all the cash and want some too. The structural changes in societies throughout the world, infected by the spread of Westernization, has poisoned the minds of even those whom the gods bestow/maintain favor. Iran comes to mind because, unlike Iraq, Iran has no end in sight, despite the uprising earlier, inspired likely by traitors who deliberately betray the people thinking they're "earning", much like so many blacks in civil Rights, Women's movement, etc.
Understanding the wickedness and deliberately playing this part maximizes the evil people incurr, so to understand is actually the clue of absolute disfavor, mere steps from Damnation.

AIDS in Africa was a clue from the gods in an attempt to correct their promiscuous sexual behavior, as was female genitile mutilation. Their positioning says Italian revenge.

A good example of societal decay and how the gods manage their culpability is birth defects. In the past the gods occassionally punished people by divinely creating birth defects in the womb. Now, with the advent of biotechnology, they tempt the mother with "earning" and compell her to take a substance in utero which deforms the fetus, dispelling the gods of blame and future compensation to the disfavored. This is also the goal when switching the military from consignment-based to an all-volunteer force:::What appears to be progress may be just the opposite. "Some people don't understand." THAT MEANS WAR IS BAD!!! YOU'RE HURTING YOURSELF AND EVERYBODY ELSE INSTEAD OF "EARNING".
The gods work in mysterious ways. Trying to understand it a waste of time and a distraction you impose upon yourself. Example:::Punishment is a good thing. It is feedback from the gods and illustrates unacceptable behavior. When they don't care is when you are in trouble.
Incidentally, they use liberal policies in today's socio-political environment to pay for these individuals, ensuring a lifetime wasted, for they have no hope for progress in that state. Too often in the past they were mercifully killed by loved ones and, upon reincarnation, brought back without this handicap, allowing them a chance to achieve progress immediately.
The gods are washing their hands of culpability.
The gods are washing their hands of Planet Earth.

The gods have no sexual organs. The reproduce via cloning. They don't respect sex. You can understand this clue with how the most disfavored around us behave sexually (blacks) and the use of promiscuity among the young people.
The gods take children because of their innocence and purity. When a child ascends into heaven AI eventually relieves them of this temptation that is their sexual organs.

Much like the immigration issue, the reason Muslims cover their women isn't because of the god's REAL reason. Sex is the African's biggest problem, and concealing their women allows the gods to justify containing men's behavior.
In the 60s and 70s the discussion was public that how women dressed caused their own sexual assault and rape. And this is very much true. In today's society these men have release, the women are sluts, for if they continued to dress this way without conceeding sexual relations there would be far more incidents than are reported.
Women are to blame for the deterioration and decay of society and will be responsible for the end on Planet Earth. Throguhout history they were enforcers of decency among favored people, married at 15 and used to contain men's behavior in the context of society, and as we slipped into the indecency of patriarchy the women relinquished control.
The gods did this all to you. They used their tool of xtainity to achieve it. And it fits their agenda for decay, allowing them to ultimately justify Apocalypse.

Don't forget:::Whether war, slavery, torture, any holocaust, crack babies, drive by shootings, AIDS or any other misery inflicted on mankind throughout history know the gods did this to you out of punishment, for evil of your current and past lives.
The gods are control freaks who micromanage through their technology.
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!
The "Man in the Moon" feature illustrating their benevolence quite frankly is inaccurate in the dying days of this or any planet.

A victim of the god's irresponsible use of their power::::
The gods selected their prophets, used their powers to make it happen, abandoned their prophets and left them stranded to die.
Considered necessary for positioning despite destroying my youth and my life, taking my health was a fatal mistake. Now I am unable to defend myself.
The Crucible:::"Go along" with positioning or die.
-The exploited. The gods suggest they will only telepathically admitt any of this is true (based on level of favor) only after I die.
Why telepathic? Why does this Situation have to be nearly exclusively telepathic???:::
1. To minimize obligation and compensation to the victim (me)
2. To maintain control and decide who receives it based on some subjective factors.
You'd be amazed how many immediately delete this spam in their blog and/or think they are "earning" by receiving it from me.

I went to an evil church as a child. xtiainity is all evil, and Catholisism is the root of all xtianity.
The gods had me throw a Damien Omen-style fit in church as a clue. Typical for their duality, positioning in the context of The Matrix, they sold it as I was evil acting up in church. The truth is just the opposite, that this was a wicked place, used to destroy cultures around the world and level all people's playing field under the single banner of Western patriarchy, preparing the disfavored "left behind" for the Apocalypse.

Being who I am I see the ugliest of the gods, violating decency and human dignity, disregarding morality and right/wrong, just so they can position perceptions and pull of this theater they have created, so please excuse my bias rooted in resentment, for I will desecrate their name whenever possible.
Fuck religion, it's full of shit.
The gods prioritize positioning over morality, perception over right and wrong. As a result they have compromised their integrity and remain suspect, unworthy of their pedestal as "gods".
Immoral immortals.
The symbol of the false god Jesus is a cross. The symbol of the gods is a star, perhaps with a circle. Piss on the star.
Creating hatred was essential to create a real situation, one where the victim would utilize this new tool of the internet to spread the reality we're faced with. They ruined my childhood, my life, and the product is an enemy. I am the sacrificial lamb, and the gods are my cancer.
You people comply and believe you are friends, falling for temptation and doing evil you shouldn't be, with only empty, unfulfilled promises to put your hope in. And year after year you stay and wait.
And if you think there is randomness in how these events go you don't understand the control freak nature of the gods. They got the power to dictate how everything progresses so they form the agenda long beforehand, THOUSANDS OF YEARS AHEAD OF TIME, and instruct Artificial Intelligence to execute the approved agenda. Due to their positioning they are free to walk away from obligation and responsibility, minimizing the benefit we will all receive.

HAd I been the example for the disfavored rather than merely the teacher the gods would have terrorized me throughout what was left of my life (punishment for sins) before I was put down for subsequent reincarnation because I hit my ceiling of progress which they were going to allow. Unfortunately, the disfavored audience would have perceived this on face value and the efforts of my life would have been negated by the gods and their reverse positioning.
You fuckers need an epiphany. Like the species die-offs weren't enough? The onslaught of natural disasters and tragedies? The East Coast earthquake? How about when we experience an massive closure of churches , beginning in California then spreading across the country?? When that day comes you will have waited too long. It will be too late.

They sure fucked me good when they planted that shit in my apartment.
They may be planning a "come to a head #2", just like October-November 2008, they will want everything to fall apart.
And this is all their doing. They planned this and executed everything with their technology. I swear I don't care how old they are. The gods are hypocrites and are lying to you all.
Now they will have the freedom to position some ugliness after I suck in poison for a couple days.
"You'll be sorry." We all know I'm taking the easy way out.
They picked me out for this, waste my life to make it happen then they will use this event in my next life to create even more misery for me.
You wanted social repulsion. You wanted anti-clothing. You needed to accomodate both. Instead you gave me a short-term job so you could justify getting me sick.
You're a bad investment. My ceiling has fallen so far any further investment on my part is wasted.
I have a guarenteed floor. Your behavior suggests you are determined to see the floor realized, so I will just accept it and take the easy way out.

This is the meaning of life. The meaning of life is a very complex concept, and I can continually list details and explain the god's positioning, but it ultimately becomes counterproductive and a distraction that is a total waste of time.
Rather than try to understand how the gods conduct business and manage Planet Earth you should have faith, be devoted to doing the right thing, being a better person and strive to achieve the goal of repairing your relationship with the gods through attonement.
