The world... according to ME

I already know that the world doesn't make sense... I just try to document it.

Tales of Domestic Life

*Him listening to Kanye West's "Power"*

Him: I think I want power. Would you leave me?
Me: Yes, I only want you as long as you are slummin' and bummin'
Him: But what if they want you to be my blood sacrifice?
Me: Huh????
Him: *creepy laugh*

Tales of Domestic Life

Him: I like Coffee...

Him: You should have made me coffee in the first place
Me: You haven't made me anything today...

My official Endorsements

All Hummus is not created equal. Here's the best of the best:

Cedar's Sundried Tomato Basil Hommus. One word. AWESOME.

Tribe's Forty Spices Hummus. A must for spicy lovers, and oh so flavorful!

Harris Teeter's Five Peppers Hummus. A little kick to it, with nice red pepper flavor.

Pita Chips: Nature's Promise Parmesan, Garlic and Herb Pita Chips. Flavor is delicious! A little salty for my tastes, and the pita chips are always a little too crushed, but they really do take any hummus to the next level.

This is NOT a Christian nation, zealots!

Our founders were not Christians, they were constitutionalist. They were patriots that fought to keep the influence of personal religion out of public life.

The Treaty of Tripoli, passed by the U.S. Senate in 1797, read in part: "The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion." The treaty was written during the Washington administration, and sent to the Senate during the Adams administration. It was read aloud to the Senate, and each Senator received a printed copy. This was the 339th time that a recorded vote was required by the Senate, but only the third time a vote was unanimous (the next time was to honor George Washington). There is no record of any debate or dissension on the treaty. It was reprinted in full in three newspapers - two in Philadelphia, one in New York City. There is no record of public outcry or complaint in subsequent editions of the papers.

Thomas Paine was a pamphleteer whose manifestos encouraged the faltering spirits of the country and aided materially in winning the war of Independence:
"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of...Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all."
The Age of Reason by Thomas Paine, pp. 8,9 (Republished 1984, Prometheus Books, Buffalo, NY)

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise."
"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution." - James Madion, Father of the Constitution.

Benjamin Franklin, delegate to the Continental Congress and the Constitutional Convention, said:
As to Jesus of Nazareth, my Opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the System of Morals and his Religion...has received various corrupting Changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his Divinity; tho' it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the Truth with less trouble." He died a month later, and historians consider him, like so many great Americans of his time, to be a Deist, not a Christian.
Benjamin Franklin, A Biography in his Own Words, edited by Thomas Fleming, p. 404, (1972, Newsweek, New York, NY) quoting letter by BF to Exra Stiles March 9, 1970.

The words "In God We Trust" were not consistently on all U.S. currency until 1956, during the McCarthy Hysteria. (and we all know how envogue McCarthyism is today!)

“I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.” Susan B. Anthony, a Biography, 1988

Read Toreau's Civil Disobedience, then mull on it for awhile.
