A Birch Forest is useful... There is a definite reason to buy a Birch Wood Toilet Seat. The reason for such a purchase is simple. If one wishes to join the Birch John Society, then such a seat may be necessary. excess of crap. Thus, worthy of honorable mention, is the restoration. The right is full of it because the right is full of themselves and, constitutionally, they ARE ... LYRICS

One less rattlesnake republican to vote in the next election. Mark 16:17-18 as the reason for his practice: “And these signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” The son of a serpent handler who also died (1983) after being bitten [while lightning never strikes twice, rattlesnakes DO], Wolford was keeping the practice [of dying after snake bites] alive, both where it is legal and where it is not [the practice abuses wildlife]. Many serpent-handling Pentecostals avoid journalists [and embarrassment], but not [the late] Wolford. What started as merely a festive outdoor service in the Panther Wildlife Management Area, a state park roughly 80 miles west of Bluefield, W.Va, ended on a brighter score: Rattlesnakes 1 Stupidity 0

Lets face it, the Republic Cant's (e.g. GOP) consist of frail, pale, male folks in search of their last woodie. viagra induced) use for the same. Some destinations are NEVER questioned. We are not talking about tourists. We are talking about the political right - which is rarely correct. easily manipulated.

Well, to begin with, I have not watched television in MANY years. In this case, "IT" happens to be the NBC mini-series titled "The Last of the Templars." GoodWill for 49¢ - and she was badly cheated for it! It is safe for me to say that anyone who can swallow even a teaspoon of this rancid schmaltz has elevated decomposing chicken entrails to the lower ranks of epicurean delights! Battlefield Earth! Who ever said Hollywood (or Canada) is "out of ideas?" O.K., the ideas may not be stellar, but they are still ideas! Basically, this DVD is oozing sh*t in search of constipation. Except, nothing sticks! Anyone who has a modicum of exposure to Templar lore knows the general problem. A couple of Dutchmen set out to rescue "the city of light" (not Las Vegas) from the Ottoman Empire. In Greek, the city is called Ierusalem (Ἰερουσαλήμ) or Hierosolyma. Sell me a "J" and it becomes Jerusalem. (And Issa becomes Jesus) a Roman Temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva. He was so enraged that he - and his soldiers - started killing everyone - men, woman, and children. There were no Christians to be found - anywhere! There is some orthodox spin on the Temple HERE. In a real Cinderella ending, Godfrey dies from consuming a poisoned apple and his cousin Baldwin became provincial ruler. (e.g. the king of Bethlehem - 'house of bread.' What else are you going to call this slight-of-hand for cannibalism?) Besides, there is more here than meets the beam in your eye! Baldwin had an awakening. The Crusades were NOT about restoring Xtians to the holy land. The Crusades were about subjugating the other four churches. (Syria, Egypt, Byzantium, and secret.) So, the book, like the mini-series/movie is far afield. But so what? Television is a mindless enterprise - a medium for washing the brains of the gullible, unlearned, and unaware. In short, TV is all good - as "bread and circus!" What is the "Zen" of this? You drag the rope (that you thought was a snake in the darkness) into the light and laugh - at yourself - for your failed perception. "The Last Templar" is all about failing perceptions!

I have mentioned Seleukos II and Bactria before, but I will mention it again. I got a "pitch" in the mail about a coin - actually a distorted coin. Why would someone need to distort a coin? (Afraid of the truth?) Buddhist fable, a widow finds two coppers (coins) in a dung heap and, in her destitution, contributes them to a band of monks. In the Xtian re-telling of the fable, Jesus (a Jewish stand-up comic) delivers the punch line. Luke 21:1-4 (NKJV0), Mark 12:42 "And there came a certain poor widow..." Check out "The Widow's Mites: Praise or Lament?" Even one's perspective is a matter of the original context - in mistranslation. My point is this: "Is a distortion of the truth (numismatic evidence) a lie?" If it is a lie, is it a large, medium, or small lie? And does this little white lie come with whipped cream and a cherry on top? obfuscate the simple fact that Buddhism was present in Israel before, during, and after the time of the "Christ?" So WHAT is the point? I am not advocating dualism - the truth v. the lie. I am advocating THINKING on your part. What do people fear, and why do they fear it? What if it is the mask of AUTHORITY that hides them and devoid of their persona, they have no clothes? Do you know that some people fear silence? If the absence of "life" is silence (instead of heaven, the Elysian Fields, 72 white grapes, &c) , then just what is the problem? As a result, many make much noise about such a very small topic.
