That’s No Jack-O-Lantern

Posted in Humor, Society on October 27th, 2011

Carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns has become an intense competition. Nowhere is this more true than in the wake of the coup that overthrew the Old Republic.

😆 Sometimes the oddities and extremes that fandom comes up with boggle my mind, but this is awesome.

A small number of Christians want to “put the Jesus back in Halloween” and are promoting a Christian alternative to the normal Halloween festivities on October 31. They call it JesusWeen.

Jesusween - It sort of makes sense, if you think about Yahweh objectively
Jesusween, It Sort Of Makes Sense

You know, if you objectively think about the Abrahamics’ God, Yahweh, it’s makes a certain sort of sense to have JesusWeen. Yahweh’s a scary sort of deity and Jesus, while beneficent, has some scary bits as well. 😆


NOTE: Don’t take this too seriously, my Christian readers; it’s meant in largely non-nasty fun. As a Pagan, and one who follows something akin to what many are wont to call Celtic Rite Paganism, the secular orgy of binge eating and juvenile begging / protection racketeering is at least as offensive to me as it is to you.

The Less Than 1%

Posted in Politics, Society on October 26th, 2011

The slacker rabble of the Occupy Wall Street mobs want people to believe to believe that they represent the 99% against the 1% in a classic case of class warfare. – or, at least some of them do; many are just protesters venting their hatred for America.

This may or may not be a lie and is likely to be inaccurate in any case. That being said, they are representative of a large number of parasites or cancerous societal growths within the body of our nation.

In the lamestream media’s biased eyes these occupations are the masses vs. the financial elite. What about the truly rarefied ethical and patriot “elite” though? What about what seems to be the Less Than 1%?

The Less Than 1%
Sadly, A Member Of The Far Less Than 1%

If we had a lot more people like the young person in the image above, America wouldn’t have ever reached the economic nadir that it has.

America doesn’t seem to have a lot like this person. Personal responsibility and even the most basic work ethic has given way to the entitlement society, in which people think that everyone else owes them something irrespective of of any evidence of their being worth anything.


NOTE: This person described in this image would be a statistical anomaly for a variety of reasons beyond their anomalous levels of integrity and self-reliance. Certain sorts even claim – amid a great deal of generalized venting and lingering emotional issues – the described circumstances to be impossible.

Be that all as it may, it is not the specifics of this described student’s situation that is important. It is the attitude it portrays that matters.
