Just Don't Fucking Hit!


                             






  It's like this..a man should not hit a woman..for certain. And women say, "Well, because a man is stronger than a woman " or "A man doesn't know his own strength," And it is true. But people react when they get hit. What this means is, the body and the primal centers of the brain go  into effect, most often bypassing the conscience areas altogether. Maybe for only an instant, which is all it takes.

   It's like saying..a snake should not bite you if you kick it. Or a dog should not bite you if you step on it's tail. "Should" is out the fuckin door. Even the sweetest dog in the world is going to snap at a motherfucker if it's tail gets stepped on. Why must human beings be held to another standard? We are animals after all. So, not to say it as if it is always going to be the case, but a woman that doesn't want to get hit, should not hit.

   It is simple. If it is bad enough you feel like hitting. You should be  mature enough to get the fuck out of the relationship. If you are the childish brat that hits whenever it pleases, well... no one should be in a relationship with you to begin with. A relationship between two people should not be one where hitting is acceptable, and if it is, then all parties should expect it.

  This is just plain old common fucking sense. And yes, if a woman hits a man, maybe she should go to jail. Or maybe the man should be wise and get the fuck out of that situation quickly or whatever. But that is irrelevant to what I am saying.  It is a given that a man should not hit a woman sure, for obvious reasons. But a  woman should never hit a man , if not because it is just wrong, then definitely because it is stupid.

  This seems to be becoming more than just a hobby...so if you dig what I am putting down, want to help me grow and you have a mind to, please...go to the link below and donate a couple of bucks.
I want to expand my reach and thus help to progress the mutual goals of anti-theism, to spread the messages of logic and rationality to more and more people. My next project is to begin making T-shirts mugs and bumper stickers with atheist memes and quotations on them, using the proceeds to start a secular homeless charity and halfway house, where the homeless and people returning home from prison can get the help they need to get back onto their feet without having to be force fed religion. I want to make a large footprint and all I need to proceed is to to get enough to start the printing presses working.

The Real Gateway Drug







   In my estimation, nicotine was always the true gateway drug. It kept me smoking for thirty or so long years. Because I attached smoking cigarettes to nearly every other behavior. If I drank coffee, I smoked. If I ate pizza, I smoked. Any job I really loved was always one where smoking was a natural part of it. After dinner, I smoked. If I drank, I smoked. When I rolled, I smoked menthols. When I took opiates, I smoked a lot. When I did coke, I smoked exponentially as much.

   Everything I did when  I smoked made life without cigarettes seem that much more empty. So that in my head I would say, "What will I do if I quit smoking?" I hear this a lot from smokers trying to rationalize their smoking to themselves. I hear it, because I lived it myself a thousand times or more. The advertising is designed in such a way, as to seduce you into attaching  feelings of happiness and enjoyment to the marriage of whatever you do and your favorite cigarette.

   My generation got it good. When I was a youngster, my mom smoked. Magazines were filled with people smoking. The television was filled with it. The Kool, smoked cigarettes. And then in the stores, what other level would a smart business man  sell his cigarettes on if not the height level of 7- 10 yr old's, under the register so a kid could swipe them bitches without the cashier ever knowing. Hehehe! We would fill our drawers up with candy bars cigars and cigarettes and then go to the creek,  smoke and eat chocolate till we puked.

   Those were the days. And in those days, I fell in love with the act of smoking. It imprinted on me, if you will. I remember going out early in the morning, with my mom, at 16, and having the first cup of coffee and cigarette. So coffee and cigarettes went hand and hand from that day on. I remember sitting in the bar drinking. And having that cool ass cigarette hanging from my lips. This of course was so crucial that one would go to any length to keep it there. Squinting through the smoke, eyes watering, determined not to cough or balk in any way. Sure a lot of drinking occurred. But it would mean nothing without cigarettes.


   I remember that when I removed cigarettes from the equation, I stopped connecting pot to those behaviors as well. I enjoy my pot now, when I have it, like a glass of fine wine. I don't need anything else to complete the picture. With cigarettes, it seemed, no picture existed without cigarettes involved. And the idea of quitting carried on it's back the ever present, terrorizing thought, that the moment I quit smoking, my life would cease to have any sense of completeness. All made exquisitely simple and obscure to the conscience, in one little question I would secretly whisper to myself. "If I quit.What will I do then?"


   I'm not going into all that "how I quit etc".  It's not the point. The point is, good ol Mary Jane was never a gateway drug. Beer never was either. Which is why I can still have a beer. And not need anything else. I can smoke a doobie, and not need anything else for that moment to feel complete. But cigarettes, like leaches in my mind, attached themselves to everything in my life.   The times they are a changin. The young people today are much less likely to smoke or to want to. It is not deemed as cool, nearly as much. But one thing is almost certain. Wherever you find a meth head,a coke head or a heroine junkie, you are highly likely to find cigarette smoke choking the air. Pot isn't a gateway drug, cigarettes are!!

Keep Calm and Be Reasonable

 







  To start with, this one is probably going to get a few fist shakers riled up. And I'll make it as clear as possible. It is strictly my opinion. For I am certainly no legal expert. But, in a way, I think my multiple times within the legal system and subsequent decade or so  of staying the fuck out of trouble and having a relatively peaceful and happy life; Raising 3 reasonably well adjusted kids, 2 of which are in their second semester of college under a hearty scholarship program,  having graduated in the top 3 and 5% of their high school graduating class. After living in peace with my family and neighbors  for many years now, I think I have something to say on this subject. Watch the video directly above before reading further, because it is what got me thinking out loud about some lessons I'v learned in both the hard way, and the easy way.

  When you  by hang around a crime scene photographing crime scene evidence,you make yourself suspect, thereby prompting a crime scene investigator or officer on the scene to take your information. And when the cop, calmly and politely explains this to you as he asks, still politely, for your ID. And you ignorantly start trying to imitate bits and pieces of what you saw on YouTube, without any real clear understanding of what the legal in's and out's of what you think you are doing are...that is belligerent. When the cop cuffs you and still gives you the opportunity to step back and think about what you are doing with a level head, you just get louder and more defiant, that is belligerent  #1, and #2  it's ignorant and stupid.

   The  idea of cops annoys me, and could easily enrage me. So I follow the law to the best of my ability, and if i'm not 100% clear on a subject..I stay the fuck out of it, until I am 100% certain of my rights in every aspect, and the legal system leaves me alone. I cannot count the times my bad fucking attitude  or my petty and pretentious self-righteous indignation, has ended me in jail. And I remember the times a good  attitude kept me out of jail,or the times that using my head and thinking, kept me out of that shit all together. I'm talking about the stupid shit you end up shaking your own head at, from the back of a police cruiser in handcuffs or from county processing in your orange jumper. Stupid people get arrested. Even if cops lose it on people being stupid irritating assholes, as many folks nowadays tend to purposefully be (which by the way is not the case in the above video if you havn't watched it), but even when they do, the civilian, at some point in the exchange, could have taken the route of respect and courtesy and avoided going to jail or getting beat altogether ...and often,  would have walked away having an advocate for  future dealings with cops.

   No..I feel like a lot (but not all mind you) of these internet video's are a bit of internet narcissism gone horribly wrong. And just like any mental illness, the repercussions often affect way more than just the deluded attention seeker. It reminds me of the beginning of the era of the ambulance chaser. Only instead of drawing out the  greedy and unscrupulous, which ultimately caused harm to all parties involved, this phenomena  (and it's not just police videos but that's another blog entirely) draws out the self -centered 'look at me!' generation. And the things they do are equally as harmful to all parties involved. They are spreading a meme of ignorance throughout the internet. If one is perspective enough they can see the waves of ignorance spread through threads like wildfire, becoming increasingly heated and irrational.


  This goes out mostly, to all of my atheist friends and readers. But also to those religious folks that don't even yet really understand what it means to be rational and logical. If  you  ever expect to have a peaceful life that makes any sense; if you, like me, hope that we, as a species, are not headed for a global idiocracy at best or at worst and surely more probable....mass extinction, then you..we..all of use, have to start using reason and logic in everything we do. We must (again hehehe..just my opinion) learn to avoid letting our emotions interfere with our ability to think logically and reasonably. Avoid collective and generalized hating and/or fearing of races, professions, genders or types of people. Avoid conspiracy theories, unless we are afforded the means, opportunity, and scientific literacy, to effectively investigate and remedy such conspiracy. The world needs reason and rationality. It is severely deficient.

Cults Anonymous


                                         





   Members of AA trade one addiction, for another equally powerful but much more subtle "church like" addiction. Where everyone moans about their problems and makes a big to do about  everything in their lives. Feeding their ego's drama,and coffee...LOT's of coffee. More often than not,more cigarette smoke fills the rooms than is found in busy bars. You are repeatedly extolled, in a monotone chant, to  "Keep coming back, it works if you work it!".  It, in this case, being the AA path. 

 Outside of the 30 minutes of reading in monotone, chanting cliche's and catch phrases as faithfully as a catholic does Hail Mary's and Our Father's, they talk about their miserable lives before AA. As if they were worthless until they could tell the most horrible story of their life followed by one about how they triumphed again by following it...the path. . So that everyone cheers and claps them on the back. Again, reinforcing that without AA they would be miserable or dead. They solemnly chant catchy mantra's in monotone,with an occasional placement of  higher power slipped in. Like How it works, The Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions, and the  Preamble

  Surrendering all their power and self will over to the institution of AA. They are told dramatically, that they are finished; that they most certainly will die, go to prisons, or mental hospitals, unless of course, they  follow  "path" laid out by the "Big" book. In the end though, the book is only a means of tearing you down and building you back up as a faithfully obedient drone of the "program."

   Bill Wilson, in my opinion, was nothing more than a dysfunctional megalomaniac, and a  cheap salesman, that manufactured a gimmick that would place him at the top. He could have ranked up their with the likes of Joseph Smith, Jim Jones, L Ron Hubbard or Mary Baker Eddy, had he less dysfunction and more ambition. He did leave a legacy of  anonymous programs. Programs of  manipulation that are gladly used by government agencies, in much the same way religions are used. To catch and control.


   One could say that the Anonymous program was invented in order to catch those that the church could not. either way, it is my experience that there are much more rational healthy ways to get and maintain control of ones life than just hopping from one church cult to another pseudo-church cult.

  If anyone thinks they have recovered from religion but are caught up in an anonymous cult. You can do what a lot of us do and simply take responsibility for your life and stop doing shit that doesn't work for you. Or there are more rational organizations you might get more useful things from anyhow. I'v Listed one below.


Secular Organizations For Sobriety

Some Of Us Just Have Standards



  Rooted out another conspiracy theorist. People! If you believe in potentially dangerous conspiracy theories, like the anti-vaccination bullshit, Zeitgeist, or the anti-science  lunacy of  the anti-gmo crowd;  then you might as well leave now. Because I will find you out eventually. I can't help it.

   I will try to reason with you about the importance of scientific literacy. I will link you to many scientifically accurate pages that go into great detail, disputing the irrational scientifically illiterate claims that you are purporting to be true. If you will still not listen to reason. I will then most likely treat you as I do other religious people. As someone that no longer values logic and reason. The town lunatic. I have no use for you in my life. And I consider that I am doing you a favor by severing you from my environment.

  You will never be able to handle my attitude towards the things that you are claiming to believe. And, I am pretty damned sure I am doing those around me a favor by cutting you away. Just because you claim their is no god does not mean you are rational. It just means you are probably playing monkey see monkey do. And irrationality is dangerous!

   If you cannot approach everything in your life from a rational position. Then you are dangerous. You possess the sort of mob mentality, paranoia and delusion that potentially blows people up, joins lynch mobs and witch hunts or snipes people from clock towers. One could say, it's just a matter of time. I do not have the authority to force you into cognitive therapy. But I highly recommend it. You could say I don't have rules....I just have standards.

Regarding Robin


                                    








   Regarding Robin Williams, people!!... fuck this shit!! From where I'm sitting, if i get depressed enough or just tired of the merry go round ..and decide to off myself. I'm going to pay someone before I die to beat the shit out of anyone who tries to talk about it like it was wrong or mental. I'm an atheist. I do not fear eternal hell. I know that I am here for a time and that is it, and I have no fear of dying. So if I decide that im tired of the shit...and I proceed to off myself. Fuck you!!  It is my right to do just that.

  You know,  I have said before that  Homosexuality is common in the animal Kingdom and that homophobia is unique to human kind. Well guess what? Suicide is also common in the animal kingdom. I wonder if all of the bantering and bitching about people who commit seppuku is also as unique to the fucked up arrogant human species as homophobia?

   Now..PEOPLE...let us just remember the mans amazing career and dedication to lighting up the hearts of his fans and quit fucking talking about his depression and suicide. Depression is simple...we get unhappy...if it lasts for long enough...we get sick of being unhappy. Some of us are not equipped to get out of it. SO FUCKING WHAT!!

Religion Is a Con




                                     


 Conservative Black Mind from www.talkshoe.com

                             

   I think when it becomes illegal to preach to people unverifiable unprovable  myth, as if it were reality, then take money for it and not even have to pay taxes; when these blowhards are instead either locked up  in prison for charlatanism or confidence games, or otherwise in mental hospitals for some serious mental evaluations and behavior modification. Then I think we might begin to see a rise in the collective IQ of mankind. One can dream.


   Honestly, I think people can believe whatever they want to believe. But I also believe that if someone is calling it a belief, that it should be a belief based on evidence logic and high probabilities;  or they should be bound by law to leave others the fuck alone about it. Those people should be left alone in their delusions. It should not be something one is rewarded for. I liken a preacher or any other religious leader, such as Imams, Rabbi's etc.,  to someone offering  shots of the black plague and calling them vaccinations.


   A Religious myth taught to others as a reality seems to behave very much like a virus of the mind. One I think that could be every bit as dangerous as the plague. I imagine it would  affect mostly children. Passed from mouth to ear. Passed from previously infected adults to children. Usually from parent to child. It would attack the logic centers, shutting them down while it would stimulate the emotion centers and dopamine receptors of the brain to addictive levels. Effectively lowering the IQ.


   It's primary objective would manifest as an overwhelming need and consequent burning desire to pass itself off to others. It would produce  mutations of itself. Many different types of vectors. Some would only transmit from one person to another. And some would infect entire communities at a time. Communities which would then break away and start their own epidemics. Some of these would be...like most viruses, more virulent that the others.

   This virus would be horrible  and subtle at once. Taking 1000's of years to destroy an entire species ... from within.  Where it thinks. Till one day...they can no longer even figure out how to get food.  Could be us. But It can be treated, if not cured. If we make it illegal to spread irrational, immoral nonsense to people younger than 21. And teach religion in grade or even high school as a category of mythology. There might be hope for some future generations yet. Like I said, One can dream.
