A Prayer for Obama STILL?

The man was reelected by a solid margin, his popularity is skyrocketing, and there are still people whining this awful crap?  New (and already former) friend on Facebook posted it this morning like it was something all brand new and shiny!  I had him pegged for a durf, but he's the friend of a friend, and he sent me the friend request about two weeks ago.  I ditched him this morning, the moment that puke slid across my feed.

I really do have a "zero tolerance" policy on that one.  Especially when it slides out of the keyboard of some snickering git.  Maybe Ted Nugent can hook him up, huh?  Nards of a feather and all that.

Here's a little more of Psalm 109.  Because either they're stupid and don't know what it means (you know, the pick-and-choose but don't comprehend "convenience Christians") or else they DO know what it means in context, but they think they're sly and sneaky, preserving deniability if anyone says, "Whoa, that sucks!"  With the right so often crying that their awful statements have been "taken out of context," let's look at their "Prayer for Obama" in context.

Here you go:

 Set thou a wicked man over him:
and let Satan stand at his right hand.
 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned:
and let his prayer become sin.

 Let his days be few;
and let another take his office.

 Let his children be fatherless,
and his wife a widow.
  Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg:
let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;
and let the strangers spoil his labor.

Let there be none to extend mercy unto him:
neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.

Let his posterity be cut off;
and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

Oh, gosh, that's maybe not so cute, is it?  That is, in fact, maybe wishing death upon our President and horrors upon his children and wife.  More than anything, it's a scumbag use of what they claim is "divinely inspired truth" as a cheap stick with which to poke a politician because they're mad their guy didn't get elected.  Oh, yeah, nothing speaks true faith and sincere love of God like that.


I did post about this over three years ago. That there are STILL morons spraying this garbage is astounding.

Completely unhappy about being awake this morning.  But I've already cleaned one bathroom, including scrubbing the toilet, sink, and tub, and have the dishwasher going.  When I finish this, I'll move on to another bathroom.

Danged Cardinals are driving me nutty--they're out there singing and cavorting like it's spring.  It looks like spring because it never really looks like winter here--the grass stays green, my dianthus and pansies are still alive (not blooming, but alive), my parsley and spinach are still alive, so standing at the window, watching and listening to the birdies?  Fools you.  And then you open the door and that blast of cold air comes in and dashes your hopes.

Speaking of dashing hopes, Epinions paid out yesterday--markedly lower than the month before.  That's because, apparently, Google and Ebay (Epinions' parent company) are on the outs, and so Google isn't including our reviews in their top search results like they used to.  And it's true--I went out and searched for my reviews, which used to come in top of the Google heap (or at least on the first page of search results), but no more--they're just not there.  Which makes me invisible to folks looking for information about products.  My Logitech K800 review is bottom of the SECOND search return page.  Bottom of the second page, and that's if I include the word "Epinions" in the search term!  Without it?  I'm not even on the first four pages, and I quit looking after that!  It's no wonder I'm not taking any hits!

Just had this Oklahoma house bill of horror skid through my world (it PASSED on February 19th).  Hey, folks?  I'm just gonna say it because, mortifyingly, it seems to require saying:


It's 2013, and we still have people trying to spew their religion in public schools?  We still have people pushing creationism to our public school students?  And don't call it "creation science"--science MEANS something, it's not just a word you can tack on in hopes of lending your faith some sort of credence.

Humans and Dinosaurs co-existing.  Screw science, there's the picture!
Speaking of schools and what's being taught, we're ditching the crappy world history book we've been using with our boy and bucking him up to my college "beginnings to 1500" book.  I was working up a test for him yesterday and found some glaring errors--like 3,000 year errors.  The kind of errors that could totally screw up his idea of when things happened.  Hey, you get what you pay for, and that was a cheap book.  My college text isn't.  So that's how we'll go.

Eating up a blood orange, then it's time to clean bathroom and get on school work for the day.

In case you'v never seen one, here's a blood orange peeled.  Not as tasty as the Sumo--more navel-ish, less mandarin-y.  But good, especially if you like your oranges more acidic and less sugary.
