There's more than one way to skin a cat.

I just celebrated a year clean and sober 1/1/14. A year ago I was homeless for the 4th time. I have my own room for the first time in 3 years.

Progress.

Although I am deeply involved in the sober community I do not believe a 12 step recovery program is the only path to recovery. Programs such as Smart Recovery are great for those who just can't get their head wrapped around the concept of a "higher power".  My own journey has been more about self empowerment than claiming powerlessness. In the A.A. "Big book" it says: "we tried to find an easier softer way but we could not."
So I searched the internet and literally found   "The easier softer way"  one of many websites that applies the tenets of Buddhism to recovery. I have found it very useful I hope that you do too.

Obsessive compulsive cleaning and recleaning of rehab facilities in advance of accreditation inspections. Other symptoms include maniacal nonstop laughter or yelling for no apparent reason. There is currently no known treatment.

Eat the rich!

or
Conservative: It's what's for dinner.

You may have heard statements like this posts title from crazy lefties like myself.
It's just a metaphor right?

Remember "Soylent green is people"?

  I think cannibalism gets a bad rap, and hollywood is to blame. Human flesh is high in protein and has less hormones in it that your standard roast beef sandwich.
Our aversion and disgust with the idea of eating Raoul is a purely mental hangup.
It's just good nutrition,
and delicious too!

  If the powers that be insist on crushing the economy AND destroying our social safety net, eating the the rich
may be our only alternative to starvation. (Vegans don't start with me, you're just corn fed beef and quite tasty)
As absurd as this post is, keep this in mind:
One fat fuck conservative like say...Chris Christie or Rush Limbaugh, can feed a family of 4 for a year.*
Take note conservatives:
Americans ARE starving and running out of options.
Now if you will excuse me, I have to go soak some fava beans and chill some chianti. Fffffffff!

*With proper refrigeration and storage.

The three laws of Rombotics

1. A rombot may  injure a human being or, through inaction, downsizing or outsourcing, allow a human being to come to harm, as long as it results in profit or power.
2. A rombot must obey the orders given to it by mormon beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law or the tea party.
3. A rombot must protect its own existence by lying, hiding or any means necessary regardless of conflict with the First or Second or any other laws.

Should all churches be tax exempt?

Despite the name of this blog,
I am by no means a bible scholar or theologian.

Is Mormonism is a form Christianity and a valid religion? Some would say that all religions are cults.
Most evangelicals do not acknowledge the Church of  Latter Day Saints, as they do Judaism or other forms of Christianity.
Mormonism seems to me a relatively new schism designed to obscure the finances of a secret society.
(You may argue they all are)
It has little to do with scripture and the teachings of  Jesus.  The huge churches IMO are an offense to God. Churches should be humble; acquiring  real estate and wealth is  antithetical to Jesus's teachings.

The church of LDS holdings are incalculable. It's disgusting.
  Churches in our country are tax exempt, but I don't think the church of LDS deserves that exemption. Most churches don't, they are businesses, and should be taxed as such.

  Jesus would certainly rebuke todays churches:

Luke 18:23 (N.I.V.)

"Sell everything you have and
give to the poor, and you
will have treasure in
heaven. Then come, follow
me."

I believe Jesus would like churches to have more garage sales and less bake sales.

I look forward to your comments.

Is this a church or a bank?

Back in the saddle again

Watch "Aerosmith Back In The Saddle Lyrics" on YouTube

I'M BACK!!!!

I have not posted since Nov '11. The madness of homelessness and lack of daily internet access, made posting quite difficult and frankly, not a priority.

Then I got an android.
I debated whether or not I should acquire a laptop, but being essentially homeless, decided a smartphone could do the job and was less likely to be stolen.

I was using blogger and trying to maintain the site, but was spending my net time watching politics and tweeting. Due to health concerns I decided to give the politics a rest until sometime closer to the election.
The time is now

If this is your first time here: Welcome! Poke around the video links and give me feed back.
(Moderated)

It will take time to get burningbush
back to it's former glory especially trying to do it all via 'Droid.

Your patience is appreciated.

stay tuned.
