Price Put on Presidential Pooch Today

Presidential Financial Disclosures released today show the president as listing "Bo," the Portuguese Water Dog given to him by Ted Kennedy, valued at $1,600
While that might seem a bit high, the reality is that it is a modest price by "prized pedigree standards." "Well-Bred" champions and their off-spring command BIG BUCKs. $1,600 for a well-bred "pure-bred" dog ain't nothing. What bothers me, particularly about this "well-bred" pedigree dog is, that he really shouldnt be living there at all. Ya'll remember when talk first came out that the 1st family wanted to get a dog? Ya'll remember the vigorus campaign we all embarked on in bombarding ObombA and the White House with calls and emails and faxes asking him to please get a shelter dog? Ya'll remember when we told him that shelters all across this great country of ours are needlessly killing thousands of dogs everyday simply because there arent enough homes (and the breeders dont know when to quit.) We BEGGED him to adopt a shelter dog. Whad' happend? Thats what I wanna no.

Are we fighting Israels War?

As you read through the info in some of the links provided within these links, you will see the Talmud prohibits any "direct killing," but does not proscibe against "in-direct" killing;

Waiting to be Dead

Religion DOES NOT deal in "the here and now," is something we practice or believe in while we are
(see title)
then see Zeitgeist The Movie

and learn now that there were MANY "solar"gods before JC who were born of virgin mothers on December 25, who performed miracles, who were called "the truth" and "the light" and "the way,"...and were murdered and then resurrected in three days, and who promised everlasting life.

learn now here the roots of ALL religions and solar gods before JC

and more frum Jordan Maxwell, the "Godfather of Secret Socities" and a well respected man who no one disputes his validity except of course for certain religious institutions who try to discredit him but are unsuccessful;

Extending the String of Forgiveness Not for Naught

I came across this beautiful sentiment written by french equestrian / artist Jean Francois Pigion, and it reminded me of my own situation with feeling hurt or being hurt or feeling like I hurt someone else, so I decided to send it out to an estranged family member in hopes of some sort of reconciliation.

Though I havent recieved a reply yet, dont know if I ever will, but Jean-Francois is right. I feel better already for having taken the initiative upon myself to reach out and make the first gesture towards reconciliation,.... even if nothing ever does come of cant say I didnt try, and I feel better already for having done it. The poision has left my vessel and my own healing can begin.

Dont you have someone you would like to send this "Sting of Forgiveness" too?

Class Project, 15 yrs Later, Results in Mystery Poem

Now here is a "mystery poem" and I shall tell you why. Many years ago, while attending some Creative Writing and Poetry classes at HVCC, our instructor, Mr. Joe Cardillo, gave us a writing project. He took a poem (I for the life of me can't recall which poem it was he used) but while standing in front of the class he tore the poem in many smallish pieces and put the pieces into a hat. He asked each of the students to draw 3 or 4 of the pieces of paper out of the hat which we all did. He then gave us an assigment which was to take the pieces of paper home with us and to make an original poem of our own, incorporating the words on the pieces of the ripped up poem that we drew from the hat.

Here is what I wrote with "my words" that night, and bought them into class the next day for review: I will embolden that portion of text that appeared on the pieces of paper I drew from the hat,;

The Poet of Death
Found me out..
and street sickness caused my demise
but do not mistake the matter
for even bronze seems alive
in the hands of
a Master Craftsman
Can you help me to find what poem the embolded words are from?
I thought it was a Whitman or a Blake but not sure and cant find anything that would indicate these words appear in any of their respective writings. That is why I call this my "mystery poem."

The Nag Hammadi Library

Gnosis Archive Gnostic Society

About the Nag Hammadi Library Section

The Nag Hammadi Library, a collection of thirteen ancient codices containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. This immensely important discovery includes a large number of primary Gnostic scriptures -- texts once thought to have been entirely destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define "orthodoxy" -- scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth.

The discovery and translation of the Nag Hammadi library, completed in the 1970's, has provided impetus to a major re-evaluation of early Christian history and the nature of Gnosticism. Readers unfamiliar with this history may wish to review the brief Introduction to Gnosticism and the Nag Hammadi Library provided here, as well as an excerpt from Elaine Pagels' excellent popular introduction to the Nag Hammadi texts, The Gnostic Gospels. (Visit the Bookstore to purchase the The Nag Hammadi Library and The Gnostic Gospels or to find information on other important introductory works that will help explain this material -- or click now to buy The Nag Hammadi Library.)
