Blasphemy for Dessert?

A Canadian ice-cream chain named “Sweet Jesus” peddles soft-serve ice cream topped with loads of blasphemy.

It already has 19 stores in Canada and plans to open multiple new stores in the U.S.

Its name and flashy advertisements not only mock the Christian faith, but also include Satanic symbols.

Seven To Do List Mistakes

2018_02 04 To do list

1. Writing The List In The Morning

Writing the list at the end of the day allows you to leave work behind and transition into personal time. When you have settled on what tomorrow will look like, you can forget about work and give your whole self to your loved ones.

2. Including Too Many Tasks

Limit your list to tasks you can realistically accomplish in the three to six good hours of work most of us have each day.  If you’re bad at estimating how long things take, write your best guess next to each item when you make the list.  When you complete each task, note how long it took.  This will guide you in making future estimates more accurate.

3. Including Someday Items

Daily to-do lists should be focused. If you have a big project that will take many days, weeks, or months, make a comprehensive project plan in which you break the giant task down into small, daily-do-able tasks.  As your daily schedule allows, transfer these small tasks one-by-one to your daily to-do list.  At the end of a day when you complete one of these small task, you get to cross it off TWO lists. 🙂

4. Treating Each Item Equally

If it’s not a priority, it should not be on your daily to-do list. If you have too many priority items, delegate. If you’ve got non-priority items you would like to get to if your day allows time, make a separate Round Tuit list.

5. Not Being Specific

When writing your list, be as specific as you can be, so that when you’re taking on a task on the fly, you won’t have to waste time thinking how to do it.  You can just get it done.  Big picture words like “plan,” “implement,” and “develop” should only appear in the titles of your project plans.

6. Using The Same List Until It’s Done

Every evening, go over that day’s to-do list. Pat yourself on the back for how much you accomplished and note where you under-estimated the time a task would take or where you should have delegated a task. Then make a fresh list for the next day.

7. Not Linking Your List And Calendar

Coordinate your appointments calendar and your to-do list so you don’t sabotage your to-do plans by forgetting how much time has already been committed.

Do Not Call Registry – UPDATED

There’s been a hoax circulating on the net that cell phone numbers are going to be made available to telemarketers. That part is NOT true. However, the phone number for the Do Not Call Registry, which is included in these notices, is real and it’s super easy to get your land and/or cell phones listed. I just did both mine and it took about 2 minutes total.

Bundy vindicated

Clive Bundy

A federal judge dismissed all charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and another man on Monday after accusing prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited “flagrant prosecutorial misconduct” in her decision to dismiss all charges against the Nevada rancher and three others.

Bundy’s supporters cheered as he walked out of court a free man, hugging his wife. He said he’d been jailed for 700 days as a “political prisoner” for refusing to acknowledge federal authority over the land around his cattle ranch.

Navarro said Monday it was clear the FBI was involved in the prosecution and it was not a coincidence that most of the evidence that was held back – which would have worked in Bundy’s favor – came from the FBI.

Staying Alive

Wasn’t feeling well when I finished delivering papers Wednesday morning. I managed to make it as far as the bed where I immediately fell asleep. When I got up 3 hours later I managed to make it to the bedroom door before I collapsed and didn’t have the strength to get up. My wife called 911 and after 7 hours in the hospital I was told I had Type A Influenza. I was as sick as I’ve ever been. The doctor prescribed Tamiflu. It’s supposed to be good. Should be — a 5-day supply, 10 pills, cost $98. My wife is pretty sick, too, but she sat with me at the hospital the whole time and always puts me ahead of herself. Miss Isabel’s 14th birthday is Sunday, but we don’t dare go. We’ll call her and when grandma is feeling better she’ll take her on a shopping trip. My boss has been great, and I plan to go back to work tomorrow. Sunday is by far the biggest day in the paper business.

Just thought I’d throw a few things together that don’t make a lot of sense, but what else is new?

THE BRADFORD EXCHANGE IS OFFERING A STATUE WITH MOOCH’S HEAD ON A MODEL’S BODY. IT’LL ONLY COST $99.99 OF THE HOMIES’ WELFARE MONEY.

SESSIONS PLANS TO GO AFTER POT USERS UNDER FEDERAL LAW. TOO BAD HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT HIS CROOKED DEMOCRAT FRIENDS.

 

MICHAEL WOLFF IS A KNUCKLE DRAGGING SCUM. HE SECRETLY RECORDED MANY CONVERSATIONS AND TURNED THEM INTO A PIECE OF GOSSIP TRASH, MUCH OF WHICH HE CAN’T CONFIRM IS THE TRUTH. HE CLAIMED TRUMP NEVER EXPECTED TO BE ELECTED AND MELANIA HATES BEING FIRST LADY. THE RIGHT KNOWS IT’S A PACK OF LIES, BUT THE LEFT LAPS IT UP LIKE THE RAVENING DOGS THEY ARE.

True Tolerance

Most of what passes for tolerance today is intellectual cowardice, a fear of intelligent engagement.

Those who brandish the word “intolerant” are unwilling to be challenged by other views, to grapple with contrary opinions, or even to consider them. It’s easier to hurl an insult—“you intolerant bigot”—than to confront the idea and either refute it or be changed by it.

In the modern era, “tolerance” has become intolerance.

But the “modern” definition of tolerance — “All views have equal merit and none should be considered better than another” — presumes to be a view whose merit is better than any other.

It is self-contradictory and therefore pure nonsense.

The fact is that true tolerance can only be practiced toward those we think are wrong. I can’t tolerate someone unless I disagree with him. I don’t need to “tolerate” people who share my views. They’re on my side, so there’s nothing to “put up” with.

The point of true tolerance is to treat those we disagree with decently and with respect.

If you want to be truly tolerant
