  1. Bars on the windows mean prison. Otherwise, you absolutely must be able to escape out your apartment window, even if you have to lower yourself by rope to the ground, or in case a fire truck extends a ladder. We're not idiots. They're going at the law to shut off the fire escapes these days, just like old Vladimir Putin who locked up his political opponents in mental hospitals and set fire to them.
  2. Month of Return to Allah

    If the Muslims really abstained from "lying and malicious gossip," then there would be no "insanity" in Islam. Insanity is by definition lunacy, which arises from the false observation of times and seasons in a lunar calendar https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Leviticus+19%3A26-28&version=KJV Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times. Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. http://biblehub.com/kjv/1_thessalonians/5.htm. Jesus says that you merit the punishment of hell fire for calling your brother a "fool," let alone "insane" or "mentally ill." https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+5:22&version=KJV Nor is there any merit to be claimed in abstaining from sexual relations "until sundown." Yet they continue to accuse one baselessly of Mental Illness, Danger to Self, Danger to Others, Danger to Society, Dishonorable Discharge from the Military, being a Convicted Felon, a Tax Cheat, having Renounced one's Citizenship, Misdemeanors of Domestic Violence, and so on and so forth, world without end. They just don't stop flapping their jaw until it is broken in pieces, their teeth are scattered on the ground, their blood is shed in rivers upon the earth, and their screams of agony resound from the depths of hell to the heights of heaven when we ask them why they say such things and perform such deeds in a court of law.

  4. Are Christians, Muslims and atheists idolaters?

    I cannot proceed any further with Gnosticism. There is an Übermensch, and that Übermensch represents a grievous overreach beyond the limits that God has established for man, even as Lucifer who exalted his throne above the stars of heaven. https://philosophynow.org/issues/93/Nietzsches_Ubermensch_A_Hero_of_Our_Time https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Ubermensch https://www.britannica.com/topic/superman-philosophy https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~pj97/Nietzsche.htm Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
  5. When the serpent first deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden, and induced her to eat of the fruit of the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he could not bear the curse that God put on him, that he must crawl on his belly and eat dust for the rest of his life. Therefore he changed his first skin of deception for that of flooding, and he cause the whole earth to be flooded three times: first by violence and bloodshed, second by water which broke forth from all the sources and fountains of the great abyss, the floodgates of heaven being opened, and third by the alcoholic spirits and liquors of fermented wine. Then he changed the skin of flooding for that of Jewish circumcision, demanding the mutilation of newborn boys in the flesh, and cutting off the Jews from all their neighbors in enmity and war, even though the Prophet Ezekiel rebuked the Daughter of Zion because she was so wicked that she justified even her sisters Sodom and Samaria. About 300 years after the birth of Jesus Christ, Satan finally changed his skin of Jewish circumcision for that of popery and Roman Catholicism. When the papists withheld the cup of Holy Communion and insisted on temporal works as a basis for eternal salvation, that wicked serpent changed the skin of Catholicism for that of false Lutheranism. These so-called Lutherans namely insist that man is saved by grace through faith, but they deny God's grace and remain under the Law, from which they demand not only the good works of Catholicism, but also the circumcision of the Jews, and even this is not enough to satisfy these false Lutherans' ardent demands for righteousness: no, they demand these works and more from the poor, not to promise them eternal salvation, but even to spare for them the bare necessities of temporal life from one day to the next. A fifth changing of the serpent's skin took place sometime about the 1800s when the Industrial Revolution brought country dwellers to the city for factory work. Opium dens, brothels, and other houses iniquity flourished, and all manner of street drugs and prostitution and fornication began to prevail on the earth, as those former false Lutherans never found the grace to be released from under the Law. I feel that the serpent is about to change his skin for a sixth time, but how?
  6. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/chelsea-mannings-commutation-what-it-means-w461542 https://www.cnn.com/2017/01/17/politics/julian-assange-wikileaks-chelsea-manning/index.html Presidents and governors often grant criminal pardons and commute prison sentences in their final days of office. There are several things a little bit odd about this case. A military prison is certainly not a pleasant place for anyone transgender. At the same time, there is something a little bit funny about just letting Manning go under such dishonorable circumstances. Obama's commutation was not a full pardon, in any event. I do not think that Donald Trump "has it in" for Manning. I rather think the case is quite to the contrary. I think Trump would have objected to the torture and cruel and unusual punishment which was taking place in prison where Manning was held, much as Obama did. At the same time, Trump is under a lot of political pressure himself in office, and he cannot intervene in that case from where he stands now without jeopardizing his own legal position. I do not see the same hostility from Trump and the "alt-right" toward Manning, Assange, Snowden, and the Wikileaks camp as I saw from Obama and the establishment Democrats. The Wikileaks folks are liberal; I wouldn't mistake them for conservatives or right-wingers, but at the same time, I do think they fell out of line with certain more "established" fellow Democrats and really made enemies of them, much more so than they ever offended the Republicans, the Tea Party, the Alt-Right, etc. The Libertarians would call these establishment Democrats "statist conservatives," putting them completely in the opposite corner of a four-quadrant political space from where they envision themselves. And obviously there are quite a few Republicans who hold to such statist or big-government authoritarian conservatism as well, which is why the Tea Party and the Alt-Right are so disgruntled. That big-government authoritarianism is taking away our guns, property, rights, and freedoms without the due process of law, something to which the establishment Democrats refuse to object under any circumstances whatsoever. The information Manning released was the kind of information that would have endangered lives, let us grant that, but there is strong evidence that the information never was the secret from the enemy which it was purported to be. Ergo, it was not, in fact, classified, as it was claimed to be in the case against Manning. There was too much conflation in the court martial of the facts of the criminal case against Manning with the general "offensiveness" of her transgender condition. There was (and still is) a strong and deliberate cultivation of that offensiveness and hate on the part of many who barely knew the individual on trial. This has got to relate somehow to Eric Snowden's refuge in Russia as well as the trumped-up rape charges against Assange. This whole thing is starting to come together as a grand conspiracy, and it is taking a very long time to sort out without access to full information.
  7. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/05/10/a-soldier-needed-an-ear-transplant-doctors-grew-a-new-one-in-her-arm/ >>> Two years ago, Army Pvt. Shamika Burrage ... There is too much emphasis on full name and rank. Right off the bat, at the start of the article. There is a certain kind of "newsboy rank" about this article that really stinks. Chinese author? U.S. Army private, emphasis on the Pvt.? >>>“first of its kind” in the Army Nope. It's been done before. >>>The total ear reconstruction involved doctors carving a new ear out of cartilage harvested from Burrage’s ribs, the statement said. The ear was then placed under her forearm skin to let it grow. ¶The procedure is one of the most complicated ear constructions in the United States, according to an ABC News report, and allows for the formation of new blood vessels in the cartilage. The whole thing is a lot more complicated than it needs to be, and it doesn't need to take two years, either. There is something really, really sick about how these doctors go about their business. You know what the real problem about this is? This is from the Holy Bible, Luke 22, the story of the betrayal of Jesus. Someone associated with the doc thought he was Saint Peter and cut off that girl's ear unnecessarily, and now the doc thinks he's Jesus Himself since he can touch it and make it all better. 47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves? 53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
  8. San Francisco Mayor's death

    Do you mean "arraigned"? Those are some heavy charges, there. Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May) was Saturday, only four days ago. Date might be a little bit off, but you did post today, not Feb 9. It's a party. Sounds like those neighbors do have some bass to that sound system. Still a party. High and drunk in the saunas and hot tubs. You've got the chills when you need to be warmed up like that. Some kind of STD or another, or else too high on drugs and your immune system's knocked out, or some kind of poison... People sweat themselves out in the sauna for purification and detoxification. This party is going on a little too hard here. You're going to wake up in federal prison if you don't come down and sober up from all that shit.
  9. Are Christians, Muslims and atheists idolaters?

    Many who profess such religions (or denial of the existence of God, as the case may be) are indeed idolaters, I am quite sure. On the other hand, such a diverse group all have their different reasons for their idolatry, and different idols they worship. There is no one cohesive scholarly theory to explain how all these people think or worship or refuse to worship. The name of God, or the literal spelling of the name of God, is sometimes called Τετραγράμματον in Greek, because it consists of four letters in Hebrew. יהוה There have been and still are strict prohibitions against taking God's name in vain, and this is partially where we get the expression "four-letter word" for a curse word or swear word. The Jews were forbidden from pronouncing this name aloud, and they substituted expressions for "the Lord" when they read the Scripture aloud. The name means "I AM THAT I AM" in Hebrew, and God received that name, because when Moses was commanded to speak to the Pharaoh, King of Egypt, all the gods of the Egyptians had names, but Moses was slow of tongue and uncertain how to refer to the Lord his God when speaking to Pharaoh. So Moses was commanded by God to pronounce that name in Hebrew, and that was the name of God when Moses was speaking to Pharaoh in the Egyptian language.
  10. Scientists and .......!

    When Jesus rode into Jerusalem upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass, as foretold by the Prophet Zechariah, and all the people cried, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" -- meaning that Jesus was a great War Hero, because they called Him the Son of David, who was known as a great warrior and a man after God's own heart, because he repented for committing adultery with Bathsheba and murdering her husband Uriah, after the Prophet Nathan rebuked him. Some of the lawyers asked Jesus why He did not command the people to be quiet, but He explained that if these people should remain quiet, then even the stones would cry out, "Hosanna to the Son of David!"
  11. Do we owe Muslims another apology?

    That's not acceptable, and neither is male genital mutilation. Those who can't keep the knife away from a baby's genital organs need to be run out of town and put to death, and those institutions of evil need to be eradicated from the face of the earth. That is not right, either. But it happens plenty of times in the U.S. Murder by any means other than firearms, arranged "accident", poison, any remotely plausible cover-up... It all appears to be totally acceptable for the coroners and medical examiners. The authorities don't look twice at dead bodies or "investigate" deaths -- good grief, they gotta keep their nose clean like everybody else. You don't go off "investigating" that kind of stuff when you work for city hall or the governement. They just want to take our guns away and lock us up. They don't care about probable cause, proof beyond a reasonable doubt, or any of that stuff. You gotta gun, you need to be locked up. That is the only law that is enforced in the U.S. There is, in effect, no law against premeditated murder. Mens rea, actus reus, the lawyers don't care about that shit anymore. Where have you been hiding?
  12. Do we owe Muslims another apology?

    An "apology" is an expression of regret or remorse, which if genuine cannot be said or considered to be "owed" to anyone; and often as not at the same time there is a subtle acquiescence in the perceived necessity of the wrongdoing in which one is engaged, and an unwillingness to change that conduct or right those wrongs one has inflicted and continues to inflict upon the person to whom one is apologizing. King Herod certainly "apologized" and was very sorry, but he nonetheless ordered John the Baptist's head on a platter at the request of the whore whose daughter danced before him. To the extent that we separate good from bad, that is the job of a criminal justice system in which religion of any sort is not a valid consideration. It is not and cannot be our job as humans to impose divine judgment and eternal punishment from a temporal judgment seat, whether it is Shari`a Law or some other non-Muslim religious law being imposed or enforced in the flesh and blood.
  13. Facebook has cracked the Dark Web

    Ahh. A not-so-subtle threat of censorship in the New York Times. And I do mean a real threat of extreme torture for expressing unorthodox ideas.

Should we be listening? https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/08/opinion/intellectual-dark-web.html Heretics. Like Jan Hus who was burned at the stake for his beliefs.

Blockchain = Bitcoin. Facebook is no doubt mining Bitcoin now. Bitcoin was invented by a rather eccentric Japanese man who is maybe in his sixties, carries a purse, and lives with his mother. A large quantity of Bitcoin, that is, a large fraction of all extant Bitcoin from its earliest inception is still owned by the founders of the cryptocurrency scheme. The Bitcoin scheme uses an iterated SHA256 hash as "proof of work" to secure the entire system. However, such hash functions weaken on iteration. A 256-bit hash has a probabilistic event space of 2^256 = 115,792,089,237,316,195,423,570,985,008,687,907,853,269,984,665,640,564,039,457,584,007,913,129,639,936 possible values. Theoretically, in an asymptotic sense, assuming "perfect" or "near-ideal" mathematical properties of the hash, each iteration reduces its event space by an approximate factor of 1-1/e, or about 0.63212. This is equivalent to a reduction of 0.6617284 bits for each iteration of the hash. Thus a 256-bit hash is reduced in strength to 255.3383 bit simply by performing a second iteration on it. Iterating a 256-bit hash some 387 times would in theory be sufficient to asymptotically deplete the information-theoretic entropy of its event space to zero. As the blocks are "chained," I am suspecting that the effect of information-theoretic entropy depletion due to the iteration inherent in the chaining allows older transactions to be reversed, altered, and forged.
  14. "Gang stalking" was a "meme" on the internet a few years back. Those who complained of it were all the more heavily targeted. It is not always associated with Muslims. Sometimes immigrants from India, or some other race or nationality, or LGBT, or some other cloak for their maliciousness. Be careful. Your Google search history may be used against you. Be very careful. Many who profess Christianity, Judaism, Hindu or some other religion or idea of right or wrong are also hypocrites.
