14 Days to Broke: Playing the Lottery


Say you’re a happy-go-lucky person with $1,000 burning a hole in your pocket, and you decide to “invest” this money in lottery tickets, and keep on reinvesting the proceeds of your bets to buy even more lottery tickets.  
How long do you think you could keep this game rolling?

Let’s play:

If you buy $1,000 worth of $1 lottery tickets on Day 1, then statistically speaking, the average lottery payout of 60% means you’ll have $600 left to spend on Day 2.

Spend that $600 on Day 2, and by Day 3, you’re down to $360.

Keep going, and by Day 14, you will have (on average) just $0.78 left jingling in your pocket.

In other words, two weeks of playing the lottery has left you too broke to afford a single lottery ticket. You’ve gambled away nearly every cent you started with.

It’s no wonder Bloomberg calls it the “Sucker Index.”

Dreams of the False Prophet

 

And the LORD declared…

 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy falsely in My name, saying, ‘I had a dream, I had a dream!’   

How long?

Is there anything in the hearts of the prophets who prophesy falsehood, even these prophets of the deception of their own heart, who intend to make My people forget My name by their dreams which they relate to one another, just as their fathers forgot My name because of Baal?

 The prophet who has a dream may relate the dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth.  What does straw have in common with grain?”

Jeremiah 23:25-27

Wisdom from a very wise woman…

“Every woman knows exactly what she’s doing and why.  If she says she “didn’t know” or had “no idea what she was doing”…she’s lying.”

Now, before the entire feminine persuasion gets riled up over that quote…I must inform you that those words were spoken by a very wise, very gentle, very sweet woman…

My mother.

Those words were uttered one warm and sultry summer day after my dad came home and informed my mom that a neighbor woman was washing her car in a swimsuit and half of her swimsuit was up the crack of her butt.  

As I remember it, the conversation went something like this…

“You can see her entire butt cheek!” my dad exclaimed.  “How does she not know?”

To which my mother (with a look of disbelief on her face) replied“When your underwear is riding up, can YOU feel it?”

My dad answered, “well…sure…but…”

And that’s when my mother’s gaze turned to me, even though she was still speaking to my dad, and she said . . . “Women always have a motive.  Every woman…no matter their age…knows exactly what she’s doing and why.  If she says she “didn’t know” or had “no idea what she was doing”…she’s lying.”

At that moment, even though my mom was actually talking to my dad, a life lesson was passed on to her son that has protected me from a lot of bad situations and relationships with worldly women who sought to manipulate or lure me into precarious situations.

In my pathetically humble opinion women might be manipulators.  They might be more frustrating than an icy sidewalk in June.  They might even be more of a royal pain the ass than an actual pain in the ass, but one thing’s for sure…women are not stupid, nor are they dumb, nor are they confused.  With that said my mother’s words of wisdom ring true to this day.

Therefore… Men.  Take note…

When a woman wears a certain perfume or a low-cut blouse…she knows why.

When a woman wears a shorter, tighter skirt or dress…she knows why. 

When a woman styles her hair a certain way…she knows why.

When a woman looks in a certain direction more than once…she knows why.

When a woman flips her hair, giggles at a bad joke and gently touches a man’s arm…she knows why.

When a woman makes an effort to draw attention to herself…she knows why.

When a woman wears certain makeup or jewelry…she knows why.

When a woman does anything, wears anything, says anything . . . SHE . . . KNOWS . . . WHY. 

 

I don’t know which is more pathetic . . . that men still believe women aren’t that smart or that women are still able to pull the wool over the eyes of men by pretending to be not that smart.     

 

 

 

Ethics. Does the Law Change When a Natural Disaster Occurs?

 

It’s two o’clock in the morning.  You’re sitting at a red light.  

There is no one else at the intersection.

If you decide to run the red light, did you break the law?  

Now, let’s change that up…

You live in a flooded city.  Your power is out, you have no food, you’re wet and hungry.

The city is being evacuated, but you don’t know how long it will be before they reach you.

You see a grocery store nearby and decide to wade over.  When you reach the entrance of the store you find out it’s locked.

No one else is around.  It’s just you.

If you break a window and steal food from the store, did you break the law?    

 

ABC news correspondent, Tom Llamas, and a group of police officers were patrolling an area in Houston when they came across a possible deceased person in the water.

At the very same time Tom also spotted a group of people looting a nearby store and made the decision to inform the police who were with him.  

The authorities called in the Coast Guard who then proceeded to disperse the people and made sure there wasn’t any further looting.  

Tom posted the event on twitter.

And the bullying began.

The bullying Twits didn’t take too kindly to Tom’s actions and vilified him for pointing out people who were breaking the law because they claimed those people had the right to loot because they were hungry or in need and Tom should have turned a blind eye.

The Twits called him names and chastised him for doing the ethical thing.

I find it odd how a group of wannabe’s in our society are under the strange impression that when a natural disaster occurs, the law somehow changes or becomes obsolete; therefore, they believe and rationalize that people have the right to loot, steal, rape, pillage, destroy and murder as long as they do it under the pretense that they are “in need“. 

I wonder if the Twits would still approve of the looting if a natural disaster happened in their town or city and people they didn’t know began looting from their homes and businesses?

After all…according to the bullying Twits, if a natural disaster occurs, that means the law changes and looting is okay as long as people are “in need”

Consequently, a natural disaster does NOT change the law, nor does sitting alone at a red light at two in the morning, nor does your social upbringing or monetary circumstances.  

I don’t care if you don’t agree.  

The law never changes for your convenience or needs because it’s there to protect you from yourself.  

YOU SHALL NOT” has never changed and it never will no matter how people try to rationalize it.   

Therefore, what Tom did by pointing out the looters to law enforcement was the correct thing to do.  It was the moral thing to do.  It was the ethical thing to do.  And I commend him for it!

We need more people like Tom Llamas in the world.  

– 

People who try to rationalize immoral, law-breaking behavior while vilifying those who don’t are pathetic. 

 

 

 

A Dire Warning to Demoralcrats

aleppo_kid

When you look at the above picture, what do you see?  

A dirty kid?  

Filthy?  Sullen?  Stunned?  Dismayed?  Lost?  

When I look at the above picture I imagine the souls and emotional state of every person around the world, and I imagine they all must appear very much like that picture in the eyes of a compassionate God.

Growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s was difficult enough, but now. . . I can’t imagine being a kid in this pathetic basackwards society and having to try and decipher the truth from all the lies being spread by pathetic people who wouldn’t know the truth if it were branded on their butt with a nail gun.

There was a time when tattoo parlors, body-piercing places and sex-toy shops were only found in the “rough” parts of town.  They were only found in the dark, dingy back-alleys of society where filth and disease were common place.  These establishments had a stigma that only criminals and pathetic classes of society were their clientele and if you frequented one of these places you were considered to be a delinquent, lawless, a miscreant.

Also, let us not forget that not that long ago the idea of men sleeping with men and women sleeping with women was also considered disgusting in the minds of humanity.  

To have one of these ‘relationships’ a person had to find a seedy establishment in the dark, dingy back-alley of society where those who were like-minded would frequent.  These establishments were also considered to be covered in filth and disease.  Only visited by those who dared to choose a life of disgust and demonic decay.

There was a time when illegal drug use was considered a horrible thing.  If someone wanted to buy or sell drugs they had to go into the dark, dingy, filthy parts of town to find an establishment where like-minded people would do it.  It wasn’t mainstream like it is today where state and local governments are making it legal to setup literal drug stores on every corner.

And while were at it, let’s mention Gambling.

This ‘money making’ scam has been brought to the lime-light every election since Warren G Harding.  It’s a criminal activity that was once committed in the dark, dingy, back rooms of seedy places like tattoo parlors, bars and brothels.  Filthy places where like-minded drunks, addicts and sexual perverts would hang out.

If you were to frequent one of these establishments you were considered lawless, a malefactor, a hoodlum.  

But today…

Today, these establishments are no longer constrained to the dingy, murky back-alleys.  These places are within a stone’s throw of every home and school.  Heck, it’s impossible to drive five miles from your home without seeing one of these establishments on a local street corner or their advertisements on a billboard hanging high in the air for all to see.  It’s common place for all of society to frequent these places without ever considering the consequences.

Furthermore, men sleeping with men and women sleeping with women, thumbing their noses at what is deemed to be righteous behavior…NOT in the sight of man, but God…and giving up their natural functions for what is unnatural.  Living unholy lives without care to how degrading their choice is to the human soul or the rest of humanity as a whole.

Matter of fact, the so-called acceptance of this kind of behavior by society…democrats especially…has led to girls being girls unless they decide at some point they want to be a boy, at that point of self-revelation they think they are ‘boys’ even though they don’t possess a penis or testicles and will never be able to produce sperm.

Of course, they are only a ‘boy’ in their own minds until they decide to change their minds and want to be girls again, in which case no one actually knows what they are so to make it “easier” society…democrats especially…decide to do away with gender pronouns that have existed since creation began…

Likewise, it’s the same with boys who suddenly think they are girls and decide to announce their new gender to the world which somehow instantly converts them to the female gender.

However, these newly proclaimed ‘girls’ are still boys because they have a penis and testicles which never allows them to have a menstrual cycle; and they never will have a menstrual cycle because they don’t have ovaries to produce an ovum every month, but they still want to be known as girls even though basic biology clearly states that they are boys . . .

Therefore, society…democrats especially…oblige, and trying to be what they deem to be “compassionate”, make the decision to do away with gender pronouns that have existed since creation began…

Sex shops, tattoo parlors, illegal drugs, bars and casinos…all with only one commonality . . . They are all choices that can be addictive to the human soul, and each one has been discussed in every town, every legislature, to be made ‘legal’ for various reasons.  Most of all…tax revenue.    

Quite pathetically, many cattle who read this won’t see the addictive commonality of all the things I’ve listed.  Instead, they’ll only read the negative connotations that I included with each of the above choices, and quite possibly, chastise me for labeling these things as being evil and degrading to the morality of society. 

This has been made prevalent in our society by the degrading passions that are put on parade by none other than the democratic party.  Of which I now refer to as, “Demoralcrats”. 

They believe that freedom is living in bondage to the very thing that is addictive.  To give in to the demonic is somehow liberating.  So…they create laws to make that which was once illegal…legal.  However, making legal what was once illegal is saying that what is evil should be good and what is good should be evil.

There is a stern, dire warning against such behavior that is found in the Bible.  A book that most demoralcrats misquote and misrepresent.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”  (Isa. 5:20)

And that isn’t the only warning that passage contains…

“Woe to those who add house to house and join field to field, Until there is no more room, So that you have to live alone in the midst of the land!” — (vs. 8)

“Woe to those who rise early in the morning that they may pursue strong drink, Who stay up late in the evening that wine may inflame them!  Their banquets are accompanied by lyre and harp, by tambourine and flute, and by wine; But they do not pay attention to the deeds of the LordNor do they consider the work of His hands.” —  (vs. 11-12)

“Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood, And sin as if with cart ropes; Who say, “Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it; And let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near And come to pass, that we may know it!”  — (vs. 18-19)

Also, each woe that is mentioned here comes with a promise of judgement from God for their disobedience to His laws.  And though you may believe that judgement isn’t a righteous act…God would disagree with you…   

“But the Lord of hosts will be exalted in judgment, and the holy God will show Himself holy in righteousness.” — (vs. 16)

To not take heed to the dire warnings of a Holy and Righteous God is bringing folly upon not just your own head, but the heads of all your family. For God is not mocked, whatever a man sows he shall also reap.  If seeds to flesh, the corruption of the flesh; but if seeds to the Holy Spirit, eternal life.  

You don’t make the rules people.  God does.  He always has.  He always will.  

I’m only a messenger.  Appointed as a watchman by God to deliver a message of warning and hope to you and your family.  

That if you turn from your wicked ways and seek Him with all your heart, all your mind, all your strength and all your soul; and repent of your sins by confessing with a humble and contrite heart…God will hear you from Heaven and show compassion to you.  He will forgive you, and you will sow seeds to the Holy Spirit which profit you life everlasting.  For He is a God that delights in executing lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on the whole earth.  

Likewise, if you refuse to hear His words of hope and refuse to act upon them by repenting of your sins and turning away from them for good, you will suffer the punishment that is due you for acting out against a Holy God.  Your rebellion will be sowing seeds to the flesh which will reap a harvest of corruption and ultimately, death.  Separated from God for all eternity.  

No matter what you’ve done in life…no matter how many times you think God can’t or won’t forgive your past…believe me, He will.  But you have to come to Him, HIS way…not yours.  

Lay aside the flesh, and give your life to God by seeking His only begotten Son, Jesus.  Who died on a cross to save all of humanity of their sins.   

Ask the Father to reveal His Son to you…and when He does, don’t deny Him.  Trust in Him. Accept Him.  He’ll make your way straight. He’ll clean you up, dress you in festal robes and put His signet ring on your finger.  You will be His everlasting possession.  

A trophy of His Grace, His Power, His Love.  

So, if you’re gonna be a follower, choose to follow the One who can lead you to eternal life and stop following the ways of the demoralcrats.  Their pathetic way only leads to death, even though they make it appear that it leads to life.  Never forget that the devil disguises himself as an angel of light.  

Don’t be deceived. 

 

 

Never a Refugee

“This Christmas season we would like to remind everyone that Jesus was a Middle Eastern refugee.”

– Signed,

Crazy Lady from Kansas

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

As you can see, some crazy lady in Kansas penned those words and a bunch of crazy followers decided to believe her and make that their viral slogan for the holiday season…but the truth is…

She’s wrong!

WRONG!!

Rong!!!!

Wrongg!!

Wronge!!!!

W-R-O-N-N-G!!!!

Don’t matter how you spell it, she’s WRONG!!!

If we adhere to the definition of what a refugee is:  “a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster,” then by that definition alone Jesus was never a refugee.

Jesus was never forced to leave his home to ESCAPE persecution or war; matter of fact, Jesus volunteered to enter the war by choosing to leave his post in Heaven and became the very thing He created: a human.  

He did this to be obedient to His Father in Heaven by enduring the very persecution, hate, war, strife, pain, misery, disbelief, hardship, loneliness, grief and death this world had to offer.

And just so we’re clear…Jesus faced all of that head on and overcame it!

He defeated it.

He was victorious.

He won.  

So, if Jesus was never a refugee, what was He?   

He was a soldier.  (defined:  a person who serves in an army)

A warrior.  (defined: a brave or experienced soldier or fighter)

A hero.  (a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities)

A servant.  (a person who performs duties for others, especially a person employed in a house on domestic duties or as a personal attendant)

A leader.  (the person who leads or commands a group, organization, or country)

A friend.  (a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations)

But he was never a refugee!

NEVER!!!  

So, when some pathetic person tells you that Jesus was a refugee, don’t believe them.  Instead, correct them.  And that goes for the crazy lady from Kansas or any person who preaches it from the pulpit.

 

 

I am NOT a “christian”

Pessimist_optimist_realist

That blog title may shock many of you, but it’s the truth.    

I don’t follow the same standards that so many of the so-called christians follow, so I’m not a ‘christian’.  

For example, I don’t go to church.  I don’t read my bible every single day.  I do pray, but not for safety, wellness, security, wealth or happiness.  

I actually pray for the rapid demise of our civilized society because the sooner the apostasy happens, the sooner the beasts will appear…the sooner the beasts appear, the sooner the LORD Jesus Christ will come back, and I’m looking forward to that day mostly because that’s the day He will separate the sheep from the goats and send the goats to hell and the sheep to eternal glory with He and His Father.    

Therefore, I don’t tell “everyone” I know about Jesus, only a select few who the Holy Spirit leads me to share the truth with.  

I cuss.  I’m angry.  I’m frustrated with the world in general and all it’s unsavory, unethical, unrighteous, unloving, contemptible hatred towards the existence of God and my LORD Jesus and all those who actually worship in Spirit and in truth.  

I enjoy blaming everyone around me for my lack of success, mostly because I’m a people-pleaser . . . a push-over . . . and I happen to think that others deserve more than I do; so if it weren’t for all the pathetic, worthless, arrogant, prideful, joy-sucking, leeches in this world, my life would be pretty great!   

Oh, did I happen to mention that I’m a hypocrite?  

I’m as judgmental as they come, and I enjoy being judgmental.  I enjoy it, because it makes me feel good.  

In a weird and very pathetic way, being judgmental makes me feel superior.  Almost like I’m floating on air.  Cloud nine, if you will.  

I don’t feel shame, sadness, regret or any kind of sympathy or compassion towards the cattle in need or who experience loss, no matter how great or small it may be.  

I don’t go on mission trips.  I don’t offer my assistance to serve.  I don’t trust anyone and I never will. 

I don’t sing bawdy songs that repeat verses and chorus’ over and over and over again.  I don’t believe in having a seance and then referring to it as “worship”.  

I don’t listen to sermons on the radio or watch the tele-spouting evangelists, nor do I bother reading their books.  Mainly because they have nothing to offer.   

I lie to get myself out of sticky situations, therefore, I’m a liar.

I watch porn.  I hate it because I would rather have an honest, loving relationship with a real woman, but because no woman will have me, and with porn I’m never rejected, I’m a fornicator and quite possibly an adulterer.  

I don’t know how to love or to accept love.   

I don’t tithe in the manner that the church people command us to tithe.  I do it as I feel led by the Holy Spirit and give when the giving is needed.  

I don’t worship God the Father or my LORD Jesus in meaningless repetition as so many of the ‘good’, ‘wholesome’, ‘churchian’ folk do.  

I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, I don’t do drugs, I don’t have tattoos, I don’t have piercings; and other than watching porn, I don’t sleep around so I don’t have any STD’s or illegitimate children.

I have an actual RELATIONSHIP with my God, LORD, King and Savior; which means that like all REAL and HONEST relationships, God and I have our ups and downs.  

We have rocky, bumpy, joyful, stress-filled, exuberant, moments…but it’s REAL.  100%, in your face REAL.  Not a made-up fantasy of repetition and rituals and what’s more…we can never break up because once I’m His nothing and no one can ever separate us.  

God knows my every thought…every action…every struggle…every word.  He’s always with me.  

Is He pleased with me 100% of the time?   —  Nope!!   Do I regret that?  — Sometimes.   

And because of all this…I am NOT a christian. . . at least . . . not a christian by the world’s examples and definition.  

What I am, is a Follower of JESUS.  

The LORD JESUS CHRIST who was obedient unto His Father, even unto death, so the Father would be able to reconcile the world back unto Himself through the death of His Son on a cross.  Therefore, ANYONE would be saved who would look upon Jesus on that cross and believe that He is from God and would turn from their evil, wicked, disobedient deeds and believe in their hearts that God the Father raised Jesus from the dead on the third day.
