All hail the righteous do-gooding tv minds guiding us by our sheepy hands so we as an ignorant mass may know better and C'mon people smile on your bro

This world is stupid.

And Imus was dropped from his network. Yet, there's money to be made in the racism marketing scam. Pay up!

Free Imus

I was driving home from the park this evening and I wondered if any of the celebrities blowing Gore right now remember his PRMC (PMRC?) movement back in the eighties? If anyone confronted Gore and his brain-dead Hollywood clones on this, would he feel the need to address that...Inconvenient Truth? (sorry...I couldn't resist!)

Art Imitating...Art?

It is funny when a cartoon band is better than most 'real' (I use that term loosely) bands out there now. I wish Dethklok would have an episode where they 'accidentally' murdered all of the emo bands. Brutal...

Spanking the kids...

My 12 y/o (13 on May 3rd) is giving attitude like a punk! He's getting constant In-School- Suspension (lately), has to be escorted to class because he's always tardy, and at home he's smarting off to 8.5 month-pregnant wife and muttering bad words in Spanish under his breath thinking we (parents) are too ignorant to know what he's saying (we live in Houston...most of our advertisements are in Spanish). So I explained to him, after much verbal admonitions to straighten up, I don't want to spank him because he's on the cusp of young manhood and so on, but after taking away his cool clothes (he's into this emo garbage) and shaving his head, he still persists. Therefore, I said hey, this is what's up: My job as a parent is to teach you right from wrong, to be a good member of society, etc. and I've done that. I can't tolerate your behaviour and I don't know what else to do, so here we are now. And then I gave him a couple of good swats on the booty with my belt. Here's my dilemna:

Why do I always feel guilty or bad afterwards? I didn't feel anger as I swatted him, just a grim this-is-what-I-have-to-do feeling. This is literally the 3rd time I've used the belt on him in his lifetime, so it's not abuse.

My 9 y/o (10 on April 17) rarely gets a tap. I don't recall ever choosing to use the belt on him; I just swat him with my hand (my Red Right Hand--Nick Cave and the B.S.). He's funny: when he knows he's getting it, he just resigns himself to it and gets it over with and then tries (falsely) to put on a face of hurt, which he can't fake very well so I usually turn my head and laugh because it's kind of cute; in contrast, my 12 y/o fights and cries big tears and begs for it not to be so...

My 5 y/o is the biggest sweetie in the world and has never, currently does not, nor ever will require a spanking.

So I wonder if this is how God felt when he melted Sodom and Gomorrah or drowned everybody in the flood? He loved his children, but they pushed the limits too far. Something had to be done but only one thing was left to do after repeated warnings and direction...

Hey, I just thought of something: is this an example of applying the Scriptures to one's life?

Another thing with the 12 y/o: seeing my hx of cycling through moods, I sometimes wonder (fear is a better word) if I passed on the madness...? Or, is he experiencing hormonal shifts with puberty and its oncoming onslaught? Or is it societally driven related to 7th grade?

Snuclear War

I'm starting a countdown to the annihilation of Iran. Stupid, stupid country. There are pictures of the Iranian populace shouting anti-Bush/U.S.A. rants and so on...So, are these people coerced by their 'leaders'-aka the mullahs or government, or are these feelings sincere? Either way, they should be nuked (snuked, if you watch Southpark). Here's why:

First of all, if their feelings are sincere, then they present a threat to our civilization, which means a threat ultimately to my family and freedom.. There is no question which I choose there.

Secondly, if they are being coerced or threatened, say for instance the mullahs or coercing force is threatening their families in order for them to publicly rant, then they are cowards. They need to be killed for their cowardice. If the population is really wanting to overthrow the current regime, like our news purports them to, then why don't they? We did it 250-plus years ago against a similar, if not larger, threat. Read the last line of the Declaration of Independence to see what the authors sacrificed in signing that Document.

And is anyone taking global warming seriously? How can they with Al Gore and his mansion (man of the people my ass-Gore's a hypocrite communist-wake up!) and John Travolta at the helm? Does anyone else see through their facade? ???

It all makes sense, now...

Some of my co-workers bring magazines like US, People, etc. and I find myself in rare moments of down-time reading them. Apparently Angelina Jolie is adopting another child. I didn't read the article, but a thought occurred to me...what better victims than international orphans who won't be noticed when they disappear? You see...

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are cannibals with an insatiable appetite for children...

Mark my words...

Fear Not, for I've Overcome the World

And I knew the silence of the world...

The title is scripture, and the latter is a song...

I see the latest 'crisis' regarding Iran in two ways: Iran is trying to elevate things, or Iran is using this as a guage to see how far the world will react in regards to Iran's aggression; sort of like last year's kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by terrorists...So, either way, where does this lead?

I've been working nights since New Years and my sleep habits are skewed. Once I was awake last week for around 36 hours straight; during the night portion of that I read all of 1st Nephi. I love the scriptures. When I start relying on my own wisdom, or see the world through my own 'lenses', then I get depressed. The good thing about scriptures is that the remind you of who and where you are, if you have the faith to believe in them and the subsequent testimony.

April's Ensign is especially good. I like Elder Haight's article and the First Presidency's Message. Elder Haight talks about an episode when he is extremely ill and unconscious for days and during that period he has a vision of the Saviour and His mission. I find it peculiar the Lord working that way. Maybe it took a coma to get through to Elder Haight (hahaha...).

Secularly, I'm bored with all of my music. I'm actually anti-all-of-my-music right now; nothing's appealing to me and most of the bands I listen to are following the anti-Bush trend. How shallow. How utterly stupid. Rock against Bush...Does it get through to more than druggies, hormonal teenagers, and college students? I started a book which seems ok for the time being; it's called When Madeliene Was Young or something like that. I just started so time will tell.

On the baby front, I think I'm in for some trouble. I had a dream where I felt a need to show-off for my daughter and be impossibly perfect for her, like I have to be this knight following some strict moral code (like a Priesthood Peter, maybe....?). Heather was sleeping and I was laying next to her feeling her swollen watermelon belly and femme fetus was squirming all over the place! She's going to be wild!

I graduate in one month. Not that the regimen was difficult, but the due dates for easy assignments and keeping up with the schedule will not be missed. I will pick up more shifts and worry about nothing except time for the kids. Life will hopefully be easy. Except for Iran...
