So, when I mention a glass house, what is the obvious obtuse choice? Well, Carter Glass was an unreconstructed rebel. He was on the cover of TIME (June 9, 1924) born in the antebellum South, Glass unapologetically fought to retain a society in which property-owning, white males sat at the top of the pyramid." Carter Glass earned his fame by pursuing his ultimately successful goal of denying the right to vote to as many black Virginia as possible. As he told one reporter, “Discrimination! Why that is exactly what we propose. To remove every negro voter who can be gotten rid of, legally, without materially impairing the numerical strength of the white electorate.” Runs on the banks were threatening the inherited wealth of the landed gentry! FDIC ended that! He's the Glass in the Glass–Steagall Act! And his much coveted "Glass" mansion is where Jerry Fall-well died. (and his fatness is buried in the front yard) having fat friends... This $100,000 gold certificate is "chump change." Xtian fat-man wanted to live in a Glass house! People who live in Glass houses should not stow thrones! multimillionaire “Reverend” Sun Myung Moon was crowned messiah on March 13, 2004 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC. Attending the ceremony were apparently seventy-one congressmen, including two senators, dozens of ambassadors to the United States, and various other figures from the religious and political establishments of the nation."

So, todays snews (it's neither news nor an ice cube's chance in hell) is that one-term Senator (and log cabin tea bagger) Ted Cruz in running for president. He made his announcement at seriously dead the Fall-well . . . ah . . . created (pun) . . . '©Liberty University©.' If you don't have something GOOD to say about Fall-well then... Let me say this about Moral Majority wordsmith Fall-well: " . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . " THAT having been said... Canadian Born Senator Ted Cruz is running for President. A great moment in the annals of birtherism took place at Xtian® '©Liberty University©.' The Right-wingnuts invested heavily in the argument that Barack Obama lacked constitutional qualification to be our Commander In Chief due to his allegedly* foreign birth. It turns out that Tea Party Tea Party hero Cruz is in precisely THAT circumstance. Ted Cruz was born (under the Canadian socialized health care) in Calgary, Canada, the son of an American mother and a Cuban father. He is foreign born as the son of a father who was a citizen of a foreign land. Birther Hypocrisy? - The Right Wing Has No Problem with Birther Hypocrisy! Let me repeat that: Birther Hypocrisy? - The Right Wing Has No Problem with Birther Hypocrisy! It's not a hat in the ring, it's another turd in the septic tank! These people would willingly bear false witness against their neighbor(s). *This is but one example.

NOTE: Rigors is a plural. There is NOT one rigor of academic scrutiny, there are MANY RIGORS. One RIGOR doth not a bozon make... "More testing needed..." So, the identical nature of the birth narrative of Sargon of Agade with that of Moses of Egypt (according to ANE Folklore) does not a copy make. Whether Genesis was borrowed from Egypt or Sumer - or both - makes no difference. THIS website assumes, correctly, that Hebrew was NOT the 'mother tongue.' Some influence of Akkadian and Kashmiri is evident. The Kashmiri language is one of the 22 common languages of India. harmonious composition.' stellar motions once took centuries to detect). Sky motion - in general - is below the threshold of perception. Swastika Source HERE Be well.

You mean this week? I don't know, but PLENTY. Adherents.com reports 22 "Major Religions" - each with half a million followers (or more) - throughout the world. a multitude of gods - research that one yourself. Rei Hino is a Shinto priestess (Miko) who transforms into Sailor Mars... Others go for just 33,000,000. Yet others say 3003... or 33 Celestial gods? Steve Jobs had some interest in aspects of Hinduism. We know he (Steve Jobs) eventually adopted ZEN BUDDHISM as a spiritual path. HERE

People are often EMOTIONALLY involved with religion so REASONING with them is completely off the table. 5 years ago, in a Comparative Religions class (Calif. Secondary School) I said: "There is but one god - Aten - and Akhenaten is his prophet." Of course, that was a setup for: "There is but one god - Allah - and Muhammad is his prophet" mentioned later in the course (and about 1500 years later in history). BTW, do not confuse the issue: Akhenaten influenced the Levant and not the other way about. Some say Akhenaten and Moses were one and the same man! God was added to American coinage during the Civil War. "God" was "a device" that was useful in keeping the union from falling apart. Then, by 1956, SILVER no longer backed paper money. If you can't trust paper currency that is backed by SILVER, then what do you "sell' to the populace as backing paper? GOD is the emotional answer. HERE is an 1866 50¢ coin without the MOTTO. MORE Later, the SILVER was removed from coins! All that remains is an illusion!
