Accepting revulsion 1: Wetting the bed

Miscellaneous notes about accepting bad feelings.

[First in a series.]

Vladimir Putin purportedly has a video of Donald Trump directing two whores to pee on a bed that Barack Obama slept in.

Some people think it’s scandalous.

I think it’s hilarious.

Some days ago, I had a mind to post on Facebook that Trump himself is the bed wetter.

Trayvon Martin

But for the racial aspect, the Trayvon Martin case would not be noticed.

I admit being less concerned about him than about the dozens of other teens who are gunned down every month across the country for no better reason and by people of their own race. Someone will object that a black perpetrator would have been arrested. I answer that an arrest and prison term won’t bring back the dead.

Rough day at BK

Transcribed from my diary for Sunday 2017-03-12, for now I am intentionally leaving this unfinished.

Rough day at BK.  I may not have the guts to recall and tell it all.  But behind it I feel certain of (1) what Jesus did among the poor, and (2) what my task is at the shelter, and what it takes for me to leave.  (3) I have suspected for some time that the real means of wealth creation, of upward mobility, is different from anything we have ever imagined.  I have a notion of what it may be, and enough confidence in it to act on it, but it’s still very hard to believe.

The question is whether these certainties are enough to overcome my fear of uncertainty, my fear of the unknown.

Tea Party porn? Michele Bachmann’s puzzling blog

(Originally posted 11/25/13.)

11/13/13 I googled “Ted Williams the homeless blogger” to see if “First of all …” would appear. I didn’t find it, but I did find “Ted Williams: Criminal / Liberal Homeless Sensation!,” Michele Bachmann’s mean-spirited(*) post on the same subject.

She has a puzzling blog.

If you click on the “POPULAR POSTS” tab, there is a very extensive post about Stacy Keibler, copying the whole Wikipedia article about her and full of racy photos and videos.

There are similar voyeuristic posts about Gisele Bundchen, Jenny McCarthy, Zoe Saldana, Eva Mendes and others.

The Tea Party agenda appears to be broader than I’d supposed.

(*)“Mean-spirited” is a characterization, and a term I will not normally allow myself to use on The William Tell Show. I have just now broken my own rules by using it here. The policy and reasons for it will become clearer once I post Free Speech Handbook on this site. For the moment, one may consult my resume.

“During the interview with Cernovich, the 60 Minutes team realized that the very definitions of words like ‘true’ and ‘false’ were not agreed upon by everyone in the room.”

Kan. prisoners get the granny treatment

Here is a practical example of how brightening the “divine spark” within people can effect redemption or transformation.

The wrongest verse in the Bible

Proverbs 3:5-6:

5Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
