Why GOP Has The Hots For Bibi Netanyahu

Repubs possibly violating the Logan Act by inviting Benjamin "Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran" Netanyahu to speak before Congress to promote himself in his home country just days before his country's national elections is related to Dominionism.  

 Achtung, Baby...

The ultimate goal, as I see it, of the current crop of republicans poisoned by Dominionism (not unlike Daesh/ISIL/ISIS) is to bring about Armageddon, in this case, they believe conversion of the Jews to their perversion of what they call Christianity will bring about the final battle of Armageddon with the building of a temple in Jerusalem. 

The three most influential religions in that region, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are in conflict regarding their beliefs about the End Times (as they see it). 

Ironically, the TV show DIG (starting this week on USA) explores this subject, pointing out some real crazy stuff from all 3 that is actually going on, peppered with their fictional take on the subject. The scary part is that the line between reality and fiction with Dominionists is very blurred and as a result, dangerous to humanity. 

Sure, this may seem a bit out there, but let's face it, when you think about it, just a few hundred years ago, people were burned alive for embracing the plurality of worlds concept, for believing that the Earth was not the center of the universe, for believing that the earth was not flat, etc. 

We're a crazy bunch of monkeys who think we're smart.

CBS' "Battle Creek" is a WINNER!

Battle Creek, a new show from X-Files & Breaking Bad alum Vince Gilligan was awesome in its Sunday Night, 10 PM debut on CBS. It's somewhat like True Detective if it had an occasional tryst in Brooklyn Nine Nine's Evidence Room. A smart dramedy in much the same flavor as Rescue Me but with more Odd Couple mixed in as opposed to the naughty bits. Dean Winters, formerly of Rescue Me and well known as the Mayhem from that insurance commercial, is brilliant as Russ Agnew, the veteran grizzled detective paired with an extremely dapper, somewhat anal retentive Josh Duhamel as Milt Chamberlain, an FBI outcast forced to run an office in the title town, Battle Creek, Michigan. Clearly, the writers gave a lot of thought to the characters' names as well as the smart script in the opener. I predict hitsville for this show, despite it's position on a Sunday. The great thing is that it doesn't have much competition at the 10 O'clock slot.

I Got Yer "Rapture" Right HERE.

Since the advent of gutting and/or closing schools (50 in Chicago alone), underpaying or mass firing of our teachers, I propose we make it a point to at least donate a copy of Neil Degrasse Tyson's Cosmos DVD or Blu-Ray set to every school we can to make sure our children learn the truth about our world and universe to open their eyes from the stupor of being told that the earth is 6000 years old and that "the end is near." That's the coward's way out.

Sure, it's good to be in the here and now, to live life as if it's your last day, but it's utter bullshit to believe the lie that there is a better world once this one we trashed is gone. What's next, 73 virgins as opposed to 72? Our rapture is better than THEIR rapture? Trust me, it's all a crock of shit dipped in ebola. 

We need to fix THIS world as until Virgin Galactic builds a fucking starship, Earth is all we have. So buckle up, pucker up and start sweeping that doorstep. We made our bed, and we gotta lie in it...and I don't mean bearing false witness. Leave that shit to politicians.
