THE END OF THE WORLD GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

In case the Mayan calendar is wrong,I’ll do a post tomorrow.Don’t know what,but I’ll think of something.

First,rest in peace,Judge Robert Bork.I believe the venomous attacks on him by the Vomit Brothers,the late and unlamented Ted ‘Swimmer’ Kennedy and the foul-mouthed buffoon Joe Biteme are what started the ever-escalating  rift between parties.Never had a good man been treated so shabbily.I just hope and pray that Justices Scalia and Kennedy love their country enough not to retire while President Pondscum is in office.It would have a devastating effect on the country for decades.Doing my research for good stuff on the net,I come across the same bullshit we’ve been subjected to,like Time naming the Heretic Man of the year because he got the ‘low-information’ voter.Those are people who couldn’t buy a clue with Warren Buffett’s money,and really don’t care.I am going to post one thread about Jake Tapper bitch-slapping him yesterday and his usual response.

We are bracing for our first storm in 285 days and people are freaking out.It rained pretty hard this morning while I was doing my papers.As Grandpa used to say: ‘It rained like a cow pissing on a flat rock.” That makes no sense,unless you’ve ever seen it done.I have,and it’s pretty accurate.

Thats enough of that.Come on in to my world of lunacy.Being warped is really not so bad once you get used to it.

      I do not understand people who do not use their money to enjoy their lives. My grandfather, who was a cement finisher, never spent any money on my grandmother. She had nothing but the basics, never took a vacation or went out to dinner. When he died, 15 years after her, he had almost 300k saved, which his kids inherited. How I wished he had spent a little more of that making my grandmother’s life a little easer. Maybe she would have lived longer and been happier.

      • Well, you know what they say… Misers are no fun to live with, but they make great ancestors.

        My father was also a terrible tightwad who always kept my mother on an extremely tight budget, even though he made a very good salary. She accepted this state of affairs rather passively, I suppose because she felt she had no choice. Her life was very, very hard. She raised five kids on a shoestring, living in a tiny two-bedroom house, and was always scrimping and sacrificing and pinching pennies so she could meet her budget. She probably thought that once all of us were up and out, Dad would loosen up a little and they would finally get to enjoy their wealth and prosperity, but it never happened. She was diagnosed with cancer shortly after her last child (me) left the nest, and she went through surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, etc., all to no avail. My father remarried shortly after her death and lived 20 more years. When he died, he left about a million dollars in cash and assets to his four surviving kids. Now, I don’t deny that I had a lot of fun with my share of the money, but it still irritates me that my mother had such a difficult life when there was really no need for it.

        • Bob, I’m beginning to understand why both of us are so determined to make sure our children understand that they aren’t getting squat, even college educations! We’re both bitter about the way our miserly dads failed to spend on their wives. In my case, the old man did a little better job taking care of Mom, and she survived him along with some savings, but he basically only left a few classic cars that were a legacy of money spent on his passions. When he died, Mom wanted them to go to the kids, but my vote was that they be sold to give her some of the comforts she probably should have had during the hard times.

          • Well, as you know, I have twice as many kids as I would have had if I’d thought I had a moral obligation to put all my offspring through college. The two older kids are aware that they have their two younger siblings only because Mom and Dad made the choice to have more kids rather than hoard up the $$$ to pay for bachelors’ degrees, as it would not have been possible to do both. The two younger kids are aware that they owe their existence to the fact that Mom and Dad think higher education is overrated. 🙂 All four kids are autodidacts who love to read and love to learn, and they are at least as well educated as 90% of their peers who served time at college or university to earn a (largely worthless) paper credential. Oh, and my kids are all employed at good jobs — even the teenager, who earns more per hour than most recent college grads, even though she’s never gone to school a day in her life. 😀

I meant “our aversion” as in our culture’s knee-jerk aversion that seems to put pressure on us all, unless we resist it. Still, I think of lots of people I know (e.g., my parents) who tried hard not to have that last one, and when they did, the results were bright and obvious. I’m thinking of my youngest Bro who probably turned out better than any of us. (Don’t tell him!) How much more bright and glorious they must be when they are fully welcome.

                • Okay, just checking. Most people who don’t know me very well assume that baby #4 must have been an accident, given that I was 40 years old when I had her and she arrived seven years after baby #3. People who know me know that I wanted her desperately, and that in fact I had been trying to conceive her for many years before she finally made her appearance. I got so fed up with getting my hopes up every month, only to have them dashed, and then going through a major depression, that I decided that if I wasn’t pregnant by the time I was 40, I was going to give up trying. A couple of days before my 40th birthday, I was shopping with the older kids, and we stopped for pizza, and I suddenly realized that the smell of pizza (which normally I love) was making me queasy. Uh-oh. After taking the kids home, I went to Wal-Mart to buy a pregnancy test, which I hid underneath some other stuff in my cart in hopes that if I bumped into anyone I knew, they wouldn’t see it. I hurried through the checkout (this was before the days of self checkout) and hurried home to do the test. Yep, no question about it — our little girl was on the way. Best birthday present ever!

                  My #3 was definitely an accident of the catastrophic variety. If we were not both fully committed believers and pro-life to the max, she wouldn’t have made it to the first ultrasound. #2 had been a high risk pregnancy. We were told Do. Not. Conceive. Again. Hey, we tried. Cripes, we were so careful! God had other ideas.

                  Based on statistics (because of her sister), #3 had only a 5% chance of going full term. But the first tests were so bad, her doctor was very nervous that she wouldn’t make it to 28 weeks and feared we’d have to do an intrauterine procedure to try and get her to 28 weeks then deliver by C-section. Did I mention I’m allergic to narcotics?

                  She not only went full term; she was born HEALTHY … after having been diagnosed POSITIVELY with an incurable illness! The world would have called her an accident and scheduled an abortion. We chose to call her a miracle and let God do His thing. The specialist who delivered her said, “You can call this a miracle if you want. I can’t explain it!”

                  My preferred term for babies that were unplanned (like your third daughter) is “surprise,” rather than “accident” — although even “accident” is preferable to “mistake” or “punishment.”

And I don’t mean to trivialize yours, but I’ve heard those stories so many times that I’m beginning to think these miracles happen all the time and we should hardly ever listen to doctors, especially when they make sweeping statements about your prospects or fertility or childbearing. We certainly shouldn’t take their advice on having abortions, if their judgments are that shaky. Our story is that our first was conceived naturally after being told DW would need to go on fertility meds. Then, after 7 years of nothing, I was told (by Stanford) I was totally sterile and wouldn’t have any more kids. Before we knew it we had 2 more (and, yes, they’re actually mine, not the Postman’s).

                  I’ve lost count of how many people I know whose doctors told them that they would never be able to conceive… or that if they did, they’d never be able to carry to term… or that if they did, the baby would die… or that if he/she didn’t die, he/she would have some devastating, catastrophic disability or deformity… and the parents tell me these stories as they brandish their adorable, healthy babies, or point to an older child who was never supposed to have existed, or whom the doctors had advised them to abort. I’m at the point where such stories no longer surprise me, although I always enjoy hearing them and get a chuckle out of them. Doctors think they’re so smart. 🙂

But my two biggest pet peeves didn’t make the list: using the word “partner” as a verb (“Our organization partnered with Friends of the Polar Bears and Albinos Against Global Warming to help elect Senator Filibuster”) and using the word “gift” as a verb (“At Marvin’s retirement party, his coworkers gifted him with an album full of photographs of every company picnic and softball game from 1962 – 2012”).

If there’s a creative but wrong way to use a work, engineers consider it their job to do it. Most of my hate is reserved for management-speak. Things like using “dialogue” as a verb. “disconnect” as a noun. Hate hate hate.

            Oooh, these are ALL good ones. You’d all hate going to meetings at my office too. ‘Partner’ is verbed at least 5x per meeting, and ‘disconnect’ is often used as a noun. Sometimes we play corporate jargon bingo to pass the time. At some point, with everyone misusing all the words, it all becomes meaningless anyway.. It really is annoying that so many of these word abuses seem to originate in the professional world.

              When my daughter was working as a waitress, we used to laugh (and cry) over the ways her co-workers invented verbs at will: “I silverwared your tables for you,” “I coffeed that guy in the booth by the register,” etc. I understood that it was a form of shorthand for working folks who were very busy and always in a hurry, but it was still cringe-inducing.

    One of the most profound things I have read in a long time-and that is saying a lot, since I read polination every day:
    This is from the father of a Columbine student who testified before the Senate this week… FASCINATING AND BOLD!

    .

    COLUMBINE STUDENT’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER !!
    Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

    They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:
    “Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

    “The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart.

    “In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA – because I don’t believe that they are responsible for my daughter’s death.

    Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent.

    I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

    Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
    Your words are empty air.
    You’ve stripped away our heritage,
    You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
    Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
    And precious children die.
    You seek for answers everywhere,
    And ask the question “Why?”
    You regulate restrictive laws,
    Through legislative creed.
    And yet you fail to understand,
    That God is what we need!

    “Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs — politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

    “As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!

    My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!”

    – Darrell Scott
