We live in a society where we blame others for everything. We blame others for our mistakes, for misspoken words, for even being born. On the other side of the coin, we take credit for things we really shouldn't. We plagerize in our school work, our favorite artists claims to best alive as they rap over a track ripped from yesteryear and steal famous movie quotes to complete their sixteen bars. When will we be held accountable for our actions, when will we hold ourselves accountable? The society we have created believes it's entitled to everything and accountable for nothing. Unless this vicious cycle is undone, our world will surely end. However I have hope that this will not happen. That we as humans will once again become accountable to the one who created all things. Only when we believe that the original serpent is lying will we once again hold ourselves accountable to our creator and have hope. My views aren't popular and I really don't care... I'll just continue to do me and sit in my chair... you know the one over here in the corner
So, today’s blog is about love/lust/puppy love making you stupid. For today’s blog we will be joined by a special guest, Mr. Mattress Intruder song to help us make our point.
You know how easy it is for us to see how stupid a friend of ours is being because they think they are in love? How they think the person loves them too? We can clearly see and hear what the person they think they love is saying and doing, but to them it sounds like “I Love you too!” You are so dumb…you are really dumb! When they tell them, “You can come on over, but you can’t spend the night” they hear, “I respect you too much for you to have to wear the same clothes to work tomorrow”. You are so dumb…you are really dumb! They interpret them hiding your clothes as having a drawer. You are so dumb…you are really dumb! It’s easy when it’s somebody else, but when it’s us that are being stupid… our vision becomes foggy.
What happens to our brain between the time the situation goes from our friend to us… from the time we send our first text and the fiftieth consecutive text that goes without a reply? You are so dumb…you are really dumb! The next time you think you’re in love… let me give your dumb arse an exercise to try. Act like the stupid stuff your new “love” is spoon feeding you is spoon feeding to your friend and just when you’re about to call them a stupid soma…. Realize that You are so dumb…you are really dumb! And move on! You’ll be better off for it.
Take it from someone who’s been dumb a time or too and spends a lot of time in the corner.
We all know them… we call them friends, family, church members, etc… People to whom we find ourselves tied who always have a “sob story”. No I don’t refer to the growing number of individuals who are looking for work, who are struggling to find a job in this depressed economy. I’m referring to the folks who only don’t have money at bill time, but anytime there’s a party to go to they’re all in. They have jobs they don’t go to or they’ve decided to work part time when they can pull extra shifts, but they decide it’s easier for them to ask you for the money.
At this juncture I’d like to just state this… I have no problem with helping someone if I’m able to put them on the road to “reasonable” financial stability. However, in some cases, you end up giving money to feed a vicious cycle of poor financial management.
We’ve all heard the popular adage about teaching a man to fish, but these people don’t even want to know where the lake is or how to cook the fish. They want to eat off your plate and eat the fish sticks that your child was going to have for dinner. Just face it…some people’s plan for financial success is YOU! So if they will ever do better for themselves and their families (they probably won’t) you’ll have to let them fall on their faces.
This isn’t the time to be foolish with your income, or buy “happiness” as you perceive it. It’s time to make sure you and yours are feed and have a roof over your heads. Since we aren’t in times of abundance and you’ve chosen to sit at home all day while I hustle for every dollar I get, when you ask me to hold something my answer will be simply this… “I don’t deposit money into burning banks”.
But this is just a mindless rant from someone who spends a lot of time in the corner!
Ok. I really tried… I tried to have a strong opinion to share about the whole “Bishop” He Touched Me story, but I have realized that I don’t really care. If you 17-18 as these guys have alleged they were when they had an inappropriate relationship with the “Bishop” then he didn’t molest you he spit game to you and you took the bait. So that’s all I’ll say on that matter. My issue is going to be with all the folks who flocked to his church to hear him say he did or did not do it. The focus is far away from the message of God’s word at this point, but lies squarely on this situation and will for weeks maybe even months to come. The “Bishop” has promised several times to tell his side of the story, but declined upon advice from counsel. These empty promises of he said/him said has turned his promises into little more than a marketing scheme.
When will we learn? Thousands of people follow the “Bishop”; they hang on to his every word and will be stumbled if the allegations turn out to have even an ounce of truth. However should we follow other imperfect men? If we call ourselves Christians, there’s only one that we should follow…the only one that will never disappoint us…never let us down…and who by means we can receive the promises of the Scriptures… Jesus Christ. Stop following these self appointed Bishops, Apostles, etc., etc… but hey you don’t have to listen to me…find out for yourself…what do I know… I’m just a guy who can’t stay out of the corner.
I’ve had a lot of jobs… I mean a lot of jobs, but I’ve been working since I was 14. I really don’t have a job that I absolutely hated. I would go back to any of them right now. Some people though aren’t happy no matter where they are and what they are doing. You know them… they’re your friends; family… they are your workmates. They are always talking about what they wish they were doing and why they hate their job. My opinion is that if every time you get a new job you are so happy to be there at first, but three weeks later you know more than anyone there – then maybe the problem is YOU.
Nobody else has the power to make you miserable… no matter who they are. YOU are the only person who has that power. However some of you give that job to others and allow them to drive you crazy. Not I…work is too hard to come by… so if anyone is going to have the job of driving me crazy… it’s going to be me. Seriously in order to be happy in life you have to decide to be happy, you have to decide what you are going to hold important and live for that. Otherwise you’ll waste your life trying to please people who don’t count or really care. But that’s just two cents from the guy in the corner…
Hide Ya Books, Cause they Burning Libraries Out Here! As you’ve already heard, a small congregation in Florida has sparked a national controversy when they scheduled a Quran burning. Terry Jones, pastor of a congregation of about 50, announced last week that his congregation would burn 200 copies of the Quran in response to the building of a Mosque near the site of the tragedy of 9/11.
Mr. Jones… I have a few issues with this cross burning… I’m sorry I mean Quran burning. First, you barely have gotten 50 people to listen to you on a consistent basis, who are you to demand the attention of the country and make Gainesville, Fl target for terrorist attacks? You may not believe that building a mosque near ground zero is appropriate. I for one think it’s a reckless act that will end up getting people hurt. However, scheduling an event that appears bigoted is not the way to get your opinion across.
My second issue is that people say well they (Muslim extremists) burn Bibles. As a Christian (follower of Christ) is it really consistent to return evil for evil? “Return evil for evil to no one” – Rom. 12:17. Does Jesus approve of such acts being performed in his name?
Mr. Jones it is my advice to you is instead of burning crosses, Qurans, flags, people, LeBron James jerseys or whatever is next on your agenda…to turn the other cheek instead of showing your butt.
But that’s just my opinion and probably why I’m in the corner
You'll find as you read or not read my post that I say things that I shouldn't say, do things that maybe a little tacky and laugh at awkward moments. Not that I'm doing so maliciously, but sometimes I feel that things just need to be said. I think I get it from my grandmother. If your breath stinks, then you better steer clear of her because she will let you know it. If we wanted to know why someone only had one arm, a knot on their forehead or if Mr. and Mrs. Jones were together or not... We'd just get Grandma to ask and she would find out for us because she wasn't going to get in trouble or back down from asking the questions that needed to be asked. Feel free to comment on my blogs, disagree with me, call me names or whatever your heart desires because quite frankly I could care less. I mean I probably wouldn't read your blog. I won't even read mine to see if I have typos. You can expect this blog to be honest. That's the only promise I'll make. This is the point where other bloggers would tell you they hope you enjoy reading, but since I don't care... I'll just say... You've been warned.
