Bad Dates & Bad TV

There are many things that I don’t want to talk about on a 1st date. Or maybe any other time, too. And some things I’m totally sick of seeing on TV, sad and legitimate though they may be. Some are super-boring and some, while there may be a genuine need for help, are just “shoved-in-your-face” over and over and over and over on TV until you are worn out and now disgusted to see them at all.

Can I watch just ONE solid 7 day week of TV and NOT see any commercials whatsoever about:

  1. Bladder leakage products
  2.  Cancer-kids
  3.  Wounded warriors
  4.  Animal cruelty
  5.  starving people in foreign countries

The need may be real, but the relentless overkill frequency of the commercials gives one “compassion fatigue” and becomes a real turn-off.   That said, some topics are super-boring when you meet a new person, or even afterwards. For me, I really bored silly over anyone wanting to talk about:

  1.  “giving back” to the “community” or “making a difference”. Bleeaaaughh.  GO AWAY. Now!
  2.  Anything Vegan, gluten-free, or how anyone is allegic to this and that and that and wants 4 accommodations whenever they go to any restaurant and interrogate the servers.
  3.  Liberals, social “justice” warriors.
  4.  the middle east
  5.  Climate change and/or the Environment
  6.  “Lightworkers”, quantum theory anything, Ekhart Tolle, Deepok Chopra or Oprah.
  7.  People who love to keep deciding that this or that isn’t really “Appropriate”.
  8. . people who are late, lax, unreliable and then say everything is “no big deal”.

What can I say? Good help is hard to find. But worth looking for.

JUDGEMENT DAY. Questions you never asked.

“Someday, you’re gonna have to answer for that.”

You’ve probably heard that at some point in your Life. Or, “we will all have to give an account”—–

But have you ever asked:

  1. What if there is some Afterlife, but not any “life-review” or punishment based on what we did in our lives?  Suppose there is life after death but not a Hell? What might it be like then?  Suppose there is life after death and there isn’t any blissful heaven, either? Again, what might the afterlife be like, then?  But nobody asks. Think about this. Any ideas? Opinions?

It gets me curious, when I think about it. What if there is an Afterlife, but not like what we have been taught or heard about?

And there’s another thing. No one is talking about this, either. Think about it:

2. You may have heard that in Christianity the greatest commandment is to Love God with all thy heart, all thy mind, etc……and that the second greatest commandment is to love thy neighbor as thyself. And so, just picture this:

You’ve died and you are being “weighed in the balance” or, its judgement day and you are being evaluated. And you yourself, in your own defense, say:  But I loved my neighbor as myself. I gave money to a beggar with a cardboard sign. I made sandwiches at the soup kitchen. I jogged and got a ribbon for “raising awareness”. I gave furniture to the Salvation Army.    All of which is nice, but——

What if you were then told:, Yes, those were good, but many of them you did for the recognition you got from other people knowing you did it—-and—-while you did those things, you almost completely ignored the BIGGEST commandment of all:

You never really sought God, or loved him. Certainly nowhere near “with all you Heart, all your Mind, etc”.   Not even close.  On the other hand I must ask: Can it even be done? To put God 1st. Consistently. Who has time? Or maybe thats the problem. It doesnt mean we shouldn’t try. But most of us dont want any one thing, or person, or activity to crowd-out too many other enjoyable things in our Life. A variety of interests and experiences is good, and yet loving God is the greatest commandment. Food for thought.

There must be thousands, millions of people like that. Who worry about “being of service and making a difference” while they practically leave out God. And they act as if they are completely unaware of this. Or maybe they don’t care. They spent sooooo much time on the 2nd commandment (and mostly for recognition) that they 95% ignored the first and greatest commandment.  Let that sink in.

Dress Codes

Most likely, where you work has some sort of Dress Code.

Who writes these things?

Get this:  Employees will not wear:

Jeans that are ripped, Halter tops, tank tops, etc., etc.. on and on…..BUT——Blue Hair, Nose-rings, Yellow Lip-stick and weird/freaky hairstyles are just fine.

You cant be  “distracting”  with a sexually attractive appearance, (some places wont allow Sundresses, even though you are covered) but if you’re flat-out butt-ugly with tattoos and freaky hairstyles and grungy street-clothes and nose-rings or are just a plain outrageous eye-sore to the “community” (workplace) appearance, its OK.

So I ask:   Just how outrageous would things need to get before we said” enough is enough” ?   Too many today confuse “freedom-of-expression” with a “license” to see how glaring and odd they can be.
