The abomination that is… Pastor Terry Jones

I see with some horror and disgust that a lunatic preacher from Florida (Pastor Terry Jones) is planning on publicly burning copies of the Quran on Sept 11th.

There are a number of points that immediately come to mind about this but first and foremost, if the media were to stay away from him and his lunatic associates instead of publicising them so much then what would he be left with ?  Nothing.

Come on ABC, NBC, CNN or whoever… just STAY AWAY.

This is NOT NEWS !

If the media went rushing round to every lunatic who said he was going to do something obnoxious, offensive, or just downright bloody stupid they would be able to wipe out the unemployment situation at a stroke in order to find enough people to cover all the “events”, and there wouldn’t be enough air time to show it all.

Just for once, Media, have some balls… IGNORE HIM.

If he gets NO PUBLICITY then he becomes just another back street loonie with his own home videos to watch.

When he puts them on Youtube, or wherever, they can immediately be blocked as distasteful/offensive. Problem solved.

Alternatively, of course, as he plans his little ritual for 6pm on Sept. 11th there is always the hope that he might suffer a fatal heart attack at 5pm on Sept. 11th.

Now that really would be something worth praying for….

A thought for the day

I was doing some browsing around the internet last night and came across this on makesmethink.com, a site I will be visiting often from now on.

Today, as they teased me and laughed hysterically, I just wished they could see the world through my eyes.

#5289 (9) – Feb 28, 2010 by meryl – Sad – Yes, that made me think too! (1762) – No, that made me sleepy. (138)

I struggle to see any hope for the 138 who voted this down.

How would you interpret this version of “I will survive” ?

I don’t normally do politics or religion on this blog, partly because I want this blog to be a happy place and partly because I have some fairly radical views on things that will likely upset people. However, on this occasion I’m dipping my toe in the water because I feel there is a message worth spreading.
Check this out…

There are two further videos in the series…

An Australian newspaper article highlights some of the controversy surrounding these videos but here I will give my own personal take on it.

So, which form of Extremism is right for you ?

Trawling around on some blogs and watching YouTube videos that people have highlighted I often then play through some associated videos that catch my eye.

Given that I have quite extreme views on some subjects (most of which I do not post on here) I was tickled by this one I found.

Which is your favourite form of extremism ?

Justice for all – Food for thought

Let’s put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
Caution - Pensioners ahead

This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring so they could be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite especially built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool, and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free on request.

Private, secure rooms for all with an outdoor exercise yard and gardens.

Each pensioner could have a P.C., a T.V., a radio and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear complaints and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

Criminals in Nursing Homes

The “criminals” would get cold food and be left all alone and unsupervised.

“Lights out” would be at 8pm, and showers would only be available once a week.

They would live in a tiny room for which they would have to pay £3,000.00 a month, and they would have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all !

Being faced with two wild tigers (This post is not “Super-awesome”)

Last night I was sent into a state of panic again by one of the WordPress features, i.e. Surprise Me!.
To save me retyping what I have already written in the Forums here is a transcript of my response to the question “Can “Suprise me!” cue a video?” asked by windwhistle and the response by 1tess that reminded me that this is an optional feature.

I seem to like “nice”

What is soooo wrong with that word ??

Some people seem to ridicule its’ use, but maybe that’s because they don’t understand its’ flexibility.
