Bob’s Musings: Bushes, Gimlets, Insurrections, Fools, Madhouses, And Ass-Backwards Thinking
-I don’t know about you, but, after this election season, I’m Bushed [Take that, Bolshes! Miss be able to kick him around yet, pinkos?]
-Yesterday’s entry from our bathroom-ensconed Quote Of The Day Calendar:
The Ladies Aid Society of the United Church will hold its annual potluck dinner Saturday in the church hall. Dinner will be gin at 5:30 p.m.
1) No wonder those ladies are always cheerful.
2) Save me and Mrs. B. a couple of seats, gals — we’ll bring the Roses’s Lime Juice, Angostura Bitters, and sugar. Hey everybody: IT’S GIMLET SATURDAY WITH THE LORD!
A reading from The Book Of Bob, 23:17-26:
God so loved the world that he gaveth it gin;
He passed over the fields of Quinine, near the plains of Plymouth
And He spoketh to Rose of the lime farm: ‘Herewith, a primer on extracting the juice from the lime;
Sweeten it as I say, no more, no less, and bottle it thusly’.
God then spoketh to the people who farmed the fields of Angostura on the plains of Tobago;
And he spoketh to them saying: ‘Herewith is the way of the Bitter;
Maketh it in small bottles and wrap thy bottles in shrouds of paper’.
And then the Lord went to Adam and showeth him how to maketh Gimlets;
And there was much rejoicing, although Eve got hammered
And she tooketh off her fig leafs and danced with a snake.
-The Legal Insurrection keeps on growing…and, no, I’m not talking about the TEA Party Movement this time: William Jacobson now has a co-blogger. Her name is Kathleen McCaffrey, a junior at Cornell. It looks like anothor case of the Prof exercising the fine judgement that keeps many of us coming back for more helpings of some Legal Insurrection.
-From the New York Post, Doug Montero reporting, we learn:
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Day Two of death penalty deliberations in the home invasion murder of a nurse and her two daughters is continuing into the afternoon today, but with one sign of hope for a resolution — the sound of applause from the jury room.
Panel members had looked exhausted upon leaving court yesterday, apparently mired in disagreement over whether to spare the life of monster strangler, rapist and arsonist Steven Hayes because his shrinks say he is mentally “impaired.”
Excuse me, but: WTF! Here you have a man who committed heinous rapes and murders…
Jurors are deciding if Hayes gets lethal injection of life without parole for raping and strangling pediatric nurse Jennifer Hawke-Petit and helping to literally burn alive her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, who had been tied to their beds and doused with gasoline.
…and there are people who are even contemplating not punishing him with the ultimate penalty. My anger knows no bounds at hearing this and I fear I will descend into incoherent rage if I do not restrict myself to simply asking: Could This Be One Explanation? [see: The Camp Of The Saints by Jean Raspail]
-Maybe I’m engaging in some wild speculation here, but, please, think about this for a moment [or just mark my observation and store it in the back of your brain for future reference]:
1) As I pointed out in two postings recently, the Left has a history of labelling their opponents as being mentally ill and, in some cases, using that declaration as an excuse to lock-up right wingers ‘for their own good’.
2) Scientists at UC San Diego and Harvard have claimed to have disovered a ‘liberal gene’. Can the discovery of a ‘right wing gene’ be far behind?
3) The goal here seems [this is speculation accompanied by knowledge of how the Left thinks] to be to establish that human beings are genetically predisposed to think certain ways.
4) The next step for the Left: ‘scientifically prove’ that the ‘right wind gene’ is abnormal, on the level with Schizophrenia and Manic Depression.
5) Offer/force a cure.
Am I thinking crazy, am I now out walking to where the buses don’t run?
-The last item above reminds me of a thought I’ve been contemplating for some years and am still working on:
So many scientists and those friendly to the modern theories of science believe that when we, say, love, hate, or believe in God, we are merely doing these things because of chemical reactions going on in our brains. In other words, the cause [mere chemical processes] have the effect of making us feel the way we do. Thus, the existence of God is dismissed, the love we feel is stripped of it’s human element: choice. In other words, they are saying, in effect, that there is no soul and no Free Will.
What if they have it backwards? The love we feel towards another individual and the belief in God, to use just those two examples, cause the chemical reaction effect. What if we are not the mere robot-like subjects of uncontrollable, biological whim that the modern, atheistic [Nihilistic?] scientists and their sympathizers make us out to be?
