Christmas has the same Historical significance as it is really the Pagan Feast of Sagittarius and then if you really go into the Celelbratory Festivities it really gets spicy and lots of fun. I got going on it way back and I was amazed at what went on so I'll let you go and delve into it and tell us what you know, found or are trying to confirm. I still can't figure out when I drive by a Church that is sponsoring and Easter Egg Hunt whose the Religious Leader at the forefront.
What liars and hypocrites fear most is the truth.
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 30, 2018:
What Liars and Hypocrites love the most is truth because once you can center on a fact or certainty then you have an audience and are guaranteed the most assured debate from those who haven't a clue about what they are talking about. Hate to bring it up but look at what is happening right now in America by one of the most ignorant persons ever appointed to the Office who did it with outside money, coersion and used as his slogan "Fake New" and still at this very moment is spewing it out every time he lies, gets caught in a lie or else destroys a democratic process for his own egotistical persona.

Just got back from Israel. Before that it was Germany, Spain, Portugal, England, Scotland, Brussels, Paris, and Rome. I hit Amesterdam and Rotterdam for a week coming out of Germany. I will hopefully go to Prague, Budapest and Warsaw on the next voyage in the Autumn or some time depending on the flights and I may try to venture back to Rome which I loved but could only spend a week when I went. I was hoping to go to India but its too big and I don't know anyone whom I could trust. That was a mistake I made already but I found out exactly what I feared about the People.

Shantaram by Gregory Allen Roberts. Mostly true story of a very educated individual who became a heroin addict and was convicted and sent to prison in Austrailia where he escapes and flees to India where he spends maybe 10 yrs or so until he gets caught and sent back to Austrailia where he does his time and is released. The man knows how to write and the story is true for the most part. Look it up for reviews and his description of India and the people he meets is almost as good as Papillion.

It's hard for me to understand how some people are able to sleep in until at least 11am-1 pm.
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 27, 2018:
Chill young Lady and don't worry about those who stay up all night or sleep until the whatever hours of the day. Lots to talk about and to address those who work night jobs or work in stress related jobs and need extra time at the end of their day to Chill. These people do not take meds and so their lives are more unaltered by this factor. I would sometimes work 10-12 hrs work days of extensive physical labor and would have to travel for another hour to go home at which time I would consume like 4 beers go to sleep without my head hitting the pillow and wake up two minutes before my alarm went off. It was called body time and I never realized how it is the most accurate mind blowing experience you could ever experience. Was it the need to pee after drinking the beer that woke me up was not there because it was always like ten minutes before my alarm went off. If you get four hours of real deep sleep then your good for a healthy next adventure . Yes I slept on the train in on the way into work but I always made the train and rarely needed my alarm to wake me but at time it did bring me around. I could never do this if I was taking any medications and would think that any one else could. Medications will alter your whole live style in many ways.

I was in Israel for 6 weeks and went into Palestine, Jordan and the four Holy Cities. The Muslims are not as bad as you would think and the Palestinians are a pain in the ass more than a threat. If you were being treated the way that the Jews are treating them you wouldn't just stand there and take it. Ossama Bin Laden didn't cause 9-11 and the European World knows this as well as the whole Middle East. This is a story yet to be fully told, but I can tell you for the most part the Muslims are not what they have painted them up to be.

If your looking for that as a solution to anything personal, you may as well condemm your life to being non developmental, boring and without any thing worth enjoying. The Jewish Religion does have this in place and its followers seem to accept it. Whether or not they truly believe it and actually live by it is another story. Fundamentalists of the Southern Baptists talk the talk but I seriously doubt they walk it. I liked George Carlins skits on Religion and many other subjects but he makes his feeling well known and he is pretty serious about it.

Groups and Duos are another genre of Musicians who can take it to a whole different level. When I first heard the Travelling Willbury's and then I was able to pick out Roy Orbison who passed shortly after. The Highwaymen is another group who when together I feel were more powerful than alone. Simon and Garfunkle, the Beatles, and Crosby, Stills Nash and Young were so great and then poof. Tony Bennett does a lot of duos with some really great singers and do they ever bring it on. Since I retired I have been able to spend more time listening to what I missed for 40 years on a whole different level. Was Michael Jackson and Sammy Davis better dancers than singers or vice versa.

Did you ever find your calling? Or, are you still looking?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 22, 2018:
The Greatest Secret of Life is to find out what you really want to do and make money at it. Unfortunately most aspiring positions require one to be a two faced fraudulent two tongued person of no moral character. Politicians are amongst the highest paid. Professional Sportsman which includes being a Steroid inhibitor. Priests or Clergyman includes being sexually deranged on multiple levels that carry prison terms. Movie, Music or Theatric Professional has multiple deranged personality setbacks that after years of drug abuse will add to a shortened life beyond repair if it were to go longer so may as well Party Hearty and Die High. I would consider being able to wake up and look in the Mirror and have a rather certain serenity about your position in life and those enclosed with in it. The Higher up the Ladder you climb, the more people you must knock off to get up their and the farther you have to fall at some point of your endurance.

I was in a Labor Union and worked for different companies which was for the duration of the job or sooner. We used to say that we were only as good as our last 5 minutes which was true because every day you went to work wondering if it would be the day which it very well could have been after which you had to go back to the Union Hall and await another joy opening.
What do you think about this saying "there is someone for everyone?" Is it true or BS?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 21, 2018:
If you think you found someone, then let them go. If they come back they're yours and if not then they were never yours to begin with. I don't believe in the "L" word. Undefinable and people tend to put to many mushy and fake descriptives that will put one way off the plateau. Someone once told me that if a woman is good in the Kitchen then she is good in bed. I will always go for a persons soul instead of their physical appearance. Buy an Ugly Woman a House is another I would hear as a successful way to stable relationship. Houses are very important and how one looks on paper are other entrapments for short lived romances.

Everyone will shun you eventually and even though you are not aware of it. Keep this thought in the back of your head. Always look for new people, friends, co workers and a new path to walk and venture on. The biggest disallusion I ever had in my life was that my brothers would turn on me for their own egotistical gleam. I can tell you that its been almost 35 yrs. since they did this and they are very lonely people and do not know how to undo what they now realize was their mistake, not mine. I know that I've mentioned this before but I was in 6 Weddings during my life and I haven't seen them since. My Dad once told me about that and I found it hard to grasp but kept it in the back of my mind like I did with many things that he explained to me and for which I am so much a better person for.

You have in Office currently one of the most Pathological Liars who got his start on a TV Show "The Appentice" which all the views most of whom were beguiled and tuned into have become full faced with this fact that he is not only a liar, but a fraud, conspirator and a person who has sold you the 'shit sandwich' the GOP has been endorsing for the past decade. You are being controlled by a Congress who placates to the beconing call of the NRA, Koch Bros, Wall Street and the Lobbyist whom they send full time to Washington to get what they demand and pay up front for and get. Now lets go the Medical and Drug Conglamorates who also reign in cohesion with the Insurance Companies who rape you incessently for overcharges and procedures, medications and overdoses beyond prescription. Its all coming out of your taxes and you haven't a clue. The Military Budget is over 50% of your tax dollars to wage wars in Foreign Countries for Aircraft and Bombs and Bullets Made in the USA and for which our returning Veterans are left on the streets, homeless and without medical care because they were discharged under false pretenses and not because of PTSD. I may have stepped out of my lines here, but I am a Veteran to whom these things are very cognizant and I have witnessed first hand. Congress has not God to which I hope will find me in line with my above statements.

Nevermind345 comments on Mar 19, 2018:
I do not see any Bibliograhies concern L. Ron Hubbard and how he came into this. Lots to explore and I have read one of his initial books on Scientology which went no where? I don't comprehend how you pick up a Religion or Cult which for the most part this is and not come to the conclusion that there is more to this than meets the eye. Then go and study other cults and televangelists and see how they jumped on the band wagon. Scientology is very rich and rewards its Hollywood Participants that dupes others to fall into the pit of deceit. And they are all slowly and silently leaving.

If your going to move out of state which can be great again you have to go a few times and live in the immediate area for a week or more to really get a feel for what is going on. Size again is another problem and very important. Don't believe floor plans or lay outs which are deceiving. Stay away from newly constructed places which still need alot of work or faulty work that you are not aware of. Once you move plan to move again and then maybe again.

Nevermind345 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
Florida is a right to work state and so who knows who built it or engineered it. I'm sure some Politician had a hand in giving out the contract which is usually the case. There were probably no inspectors when this was being fabricated which was not where it was installed. That it was put up in a week or less is the other sketchy dilemma. I could go thru a few hundred things that should have been done prior to this being installed but that will not bring any one back. The thoughts and prayers are proof enought that they don't give a shit now or did when they constructed it because they were paid and thats all that matters to them.

Don't take the fundamentistal pledge about believing. There are like 5000 known mistakes in the Bible and more be uncovered every day as well as new findings which concede with the other findings in the early 1900. Its nothing to be guilty about and having a healthy skepticism is a very normal and healthy mental attribute. You can reveiw all of the Sexual Misconducts that exists in all religions as well as fraudulent representations. Along with the Catholic Church you can review Jimmy Swaggert, Jim and Tammy Baker and even Billy Graham who at one time realized he couldn't get out of it because of all the money he was making. Check out Joel Olsteen on that one also and tell me what his religion is truly about. The Inquisition is also of notable study and then go to the Scholars like Bart Erhman, The Atheist Experience which is a weekly radio show as well as a website on You Tube to soothe your guilt. Even You Tube the Gospels and see what I'm talking about and a host of scholars to debate what is rightfully historic and documented which is something most of the Bible is not.
Atheism and psychedelics
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
I think most persons who go that road do so wanting to experience a feeling of release and to connect with something other than the Sunday Service. Native Indians had a beautiful way of life and understanding thier existence which for the most part was totally in balance and harmony with Mother Earth, and Nature. Even the Ancients Greeks and had a more plausible explaination of life than what we are told 'to believe'. They were also advanced in Mathematics and other sciences which are still in existence today. What drugs did they take? I'm sure they had some and that the natural ones are still available because they are natural.

I always use the analogy that our shit and syphliis is their bread and butter. You will never hear them more vocal that when some discomfort or sadness hits you unexpectantly and boy do they ever like to get you when your not knowing what they are really doing and only when you look back at it were able to really figure it out. When your born and when you pass are their two most prominent appearances that can always be remembered. When you look up the word 'Sympathy' you will find that it is located between Shit and Syphiliis which is why I find it hard to forget. The different rites of passage among other religions and in early history are more meaningful and not as draube as we are given today.

AA ers are the worse when it comes to this question because they couldn't control what they thought they could. The same goes for drug addicts and alcahol is a drug which is why they call it "dope" I am not a weed smoker and at my stage in life I am not going to start. I am dedicated beer drinker whose Irish Ancestry taught me the respect for the stout. I never ventured farther and learned that beer was invented because it killed the taste of the water. For 30 years I worked Construction and when I came home after a 6 and sometimes 7 day work week I always had two or three beers to unwind and get ready for the next day. Austrailians who go on the wagon consider drinking beer as abstinence and I don't know about that because I only drink beer and could sometimes consume a lot on occasion. Mixing drugs with Alcahol is insanity as are drugs mixed with other drugs or hard line drugs. I was never looking to get insane. I was born that way and learned how to produce a show which never failed reviews or had a violent or hurtful ending. Control and mediantion plus a good diet are the staples of living in any country, culture or society.

When you come face to face with a racist, it will be an experience you will never forget. Their hatred is so deep seated and it goes to everything thats not Lily according to their shortsightedness. No idea of genetics, or that Jesus was very probalbly Dark Skinned Middle Easterner. There are many secretive organizations in the US today be it the Mafia, Masonic or Skull and Bones all of whom keep it low key and all have been under scruitiny at certain times but out of sight is not always out of mind. This is definitely the Good Old Boys Club that has come to realize that they are being outnumbered and these individuals are smarter then and are more travelled. We are talking about the good old boys who still live in the Family House and have all the Pictures and Flags to support thier distorted views. Again the Draft brought that all into perspective when in 1967 you got and upfront, direct introduction into "The Way We See It." Its very scary, and you have to remember that these individuals are Bible Thumpers who use the Bible to support their hatred and bigotry.

These people are all Multi Millionaire bestowed upon my donors, lobbyist and what ever we didn't see which is much more than is realized. To hold them accountable for what they stand for and not their designated party dictates is the Problemo Numero Uno. These persons who in the past two years have turned the racist, hateful gun toting for America to an all time tune for disaster and blood shed for which they show no compunction for their beliefs because what they believe in is money, greed, and to reward those who pay their way. If you have trouble realizing this or want to support it start it up and let everyone chime in. We are living in the most disasterous period of American Democracy and if you don't think so then go and see what the Christian Right is about and how that has gone on forever, and is not blinking an eye to their own hyprocacy and bigorty. Hypocracy and Bigotry have been passed off in History as the greatest causes for War, Death and Destruction on Massive Scales and to include the most violent and longest conflicts. Viet Nam is 98% Catholic. The Pope was aware of the Holocoust being commited during WW11 and did nothing or mentioned anything about it. My Rant that I always speak to my Friends. Doctors, Lawyers, Priest, Politicians are the greatest problems that hinder our lives and everything which we do or want to do and work toward always keeping us under their domain so that we must always feel dependant on them for care and concern which we never get or ever will.
Do you over-think and over-analyze?

I was told long ago in my College Days by many intellectuals that I "See Too Much" I have an excellent problematic and am hypersensitive. Did I ever latch onto any of it. I was walking a tight rope trying to pay for my "away from home" experience at a University that I was enable to secure with a student loan and the GI Bill and working three jobs in the summer. My Dad passed two weeks before I was drafted into the Army but he made me promise him before he passed that I would go and complete my College and that by going away was the only way that I could fully grasp the being there 24/7. I transferred from a Community College and had to start all over which was another episode that made it all the more enjoyable. Does get knocked down 5 times, get up 6 come into play here. It was a totally different education from those who went to the same school for 4 years, and I think I learned twice as much as they did, but then again I was a Veteran and wasn't into picking the berries, or what concert was I thinking about next. I came to terms with what its all about and I made every second everything I could for all that I could.
Anyone else listen to/watch Matt Dillahunty often?

Great Show with great people who know exactly what they are saying and let the whole world come on air to join in and I'm sure half of them are sitting home looking up what verse and chapter he is telling them isn't correct. Try Bart Erhman who is a Professor of Theology at Chapel Hill. He is also on You Tube in which he hosts some great debates and also takes Q@A at the end of his debate. Then go and look up Christopher Hitchen. Bios of Martin Luther, Calvin, Erasumus, and John Hun all of whom were devote Christian Scholars of their times and what contributions they made to ensure that the interpertation and explainations were properly translated. Lots of Mistakes were made and this was an era when the printing press made all this information open to the public for the first time ever. This is all on You Tube fur free.

I went to reply to your post about taking guitar lessons and the whole discussion disappeared. Can someone figure out what I did or how I may be able to retrieve it?

Nevermind345 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
I lost the post and cannot find it where you stated that you were trying to learn the guitar. Get rid of the concept of "trying" and replace it with "I'm going to learn how to play the guitar." You will never fail as long as you don't quit. Keep saying to yourself that You Are Going To Play the Guitar. I will tell you more later on my episode with Music. Don't go for expensive lessons. Lots of alternatives out there.

I have always had a hard time getting people to understand the fact that there is no test now or ever which can measure genius. The IQ test was designed for one and only one reason. To measure Mental Retardation. End of Statement. Lots of Movies, Stories, Factually documented about persons who have noted disabilities and can perform on levels of achievement that cannot be measured.

I know lots of people who have children and are not married and then at some point for some strange reason, they decide to but say that it doesn't make anything any different. Its usually for moneytary or health insurance reasons.

Have you tried studying biblical history?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 8, 2018:
It is one of the most eye opening revelations you could ever want to explore. Then go and read the lives of Luther, Calvin, Erasumus and John Calvin. Most of todays current Religious Leaders don't want you to know this and will damm you for ever giving it a thought. Many Atheists were at one time extremely religious until they discovered these facts. The scrolls that were discovered in the Late 1800, early 1900 in Iraq lost scrolls were found that were burried in earthen jars in caves. The Nag Hammadi scrolls contain some of the lost books which include the Gospel of Thomas. There is also a Gospel of Mary Magdelene who was the most famous apostle of the prophet Jesus because she was literate, and was also believed to be his wife. If you really want to follow that episode, you will find some facinating facts and contradictions to what was thought to have been destroyed by Constantine who was a Pagan. I think Constantine had his Wife and Son Murdered before he was baptized so he could go and confess it and be forgiven. You may want to check up on that one because its been a while, but I'm pretty sure of such a fact. Where and what book I am at a loss.

The Atheist Experience, which is on weekly and from Austin Texas with Matt Dillahunty as the main host and a very knowledgeable source of fact. Talks to believers around the country who try and state a case which they aren't very good at defending. Bart Ehrmans lectures, Histories of Erasumus, Martin Luther, John Calvin and the Crusades. History and Religion are Oil and Water which many are afraid to ever reconcile. Their religious affilitates tell them they will burn in hell and they believe them which is Demonic and has nothing Religious about it. When you Google or You Tube these individuals you will get a host of similiar persons or events that can be a great unveiling. Sorry I don't watch TV anymore.

Lots of History into these Religious Carnival Entrepreneurs of Today. My favorite is Joel Olsteen who has the Christianity of a Snake Oil Salesman and a Congregation to Match. We can then follow the trail onto Jimmy Swaggert, Pat and Tammy whom all reign from the Souther Coalition of Racism, Bigotry and Hatred. I think looking in the Mirror every morning would be more frightening then examing your morals which all of the above haven't a clue about. Morals have nothing to do with religion because they are naturally instilled into logically. Hatred, Bigotry and Racism have to be taught or preached from the stump. Professional Wrestling has a brighter and bigger mirror for whatever that is worth but it is one of the most watched venues on the Media today which tells you how these con a vails exist and the mentality of those who follow. Mister Rogers never preached but was a Minister in real life.

To be any kind of serious religious believer, one has to start off as a Nihilist, Chicken or Egg Man. Adam and Eve had two sons, one who killed the other and no daughters, which could be an inference to homosexuality or that one was a hermaphordite. Once your in this corner see where you can go from here and keep where the Chicken comes in to the story.
Dawkins or Hitchens?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 7, 2018:
Gospels of Thomas, and Gospel of Mary Magdelene only for perspective and interest. Very different portayals of what the Prophet Jesus was really about by two of his very close associates. Also lots of stories that the Church doesn't want to be let known. I am a fan of Hitchens and have seen his debates on You Tube although I haven't gotten into his readings. Bart Erhmans Lost Books of the Bible is also very interesting.

Atheist that admire Churches and other religious architecture?
Nevermind345 comments on Mar 7, 2018:
I've been to Europe for the past 6 years and thats all I do is visit Cathedrals, Churches and Chapels along the way. The art work and architecture, frescos, wood work, ceilings and doorways are unknown and these artists spent their lives creating what no museums in America can compare. Germany is second to Italy which I need to go back because I was so amazed by it. Even the floors are original so you know that Kings, Popes and Royalty renown walked on the very floors and some are buried underneath them. The Organs and if you hear them play are totally like nothing else you would believe.

Uncommitted relationships are the only way to travel. Makes for more interesting times and things to talk about and really learn about one another. I noticed in the last few years couples who had families and were never married until they came to the conclusion that it was just a piece of paper that had nothing to do with the relationship. Religious People see it as more profit and then people would go to church not because of thier religious beliefs but because of the particular person or type of service. Drugs have brought a lot of other experiences of a more positive nature as a more accepting feeling of being spiritual, mystic, psychic, or far out.

The system is so far gone that your not going to see any until America wakes up and votes out all these lifetime bureaucrats who sell us down the street to lobbyist, corporate interests and whatever else benefits them personally. When I was young I was of the belief that it was going to get better and that people would wake up and start to show concern. And I was wrong. And being a Veteran has really made me irate, because these Politicians have no concern for those who stuck their lives and minds on the line while most of them were able to find a way to weasel out. I will not mention any names or Political Parties, but you can be assured that they all flock together

This is and instrument you have to play every week at least in order to keep everything that is held together by string and whose reeds and drones, bag all have to be seasoned. And then you can't enjoy a few good beers without have to fear Deputy Dog waiting down the road. Life is not as it used to be.

The Guy has Big Ones being a Southerner who isn't waiting for the South to rise again, but to Grow the Fu#k up. I am truly afraid for him because if you know anything about the "Real Southern Disposition" there are many who would take the opportunity to make him feel the vengenance they like to be known to famous for. He inspires alot of insight into the fact that they are not as backward as they are portrayed, but then again when we wake up to another horrific tradgedy and see the Christian Coalitions of the South stand behind and throw their unrelenting support for Racism, Inequality for Women, Deportation and Corporate Exploitation which they believe are true Christian Values.

If Wishes were Fishes, Fooles would cast Nets. If they could imagine that you would believe that it came true then they would invent a scenario to make it look apparent. Go out and fail which will bring it all into perspective on more levels that you can imagine. You have to learn that when the storm is upon you 'to dance in the rain' when your going thru hell to keep going, and to 'look back but don't stare'. I learned to stop wishing long ago.

I would also like to share my experiences about this concept to others who are totally unaware of what it is all about.

Some people do not realize the affection that are given to their animals and are ignorant of the fact that these creatures of God have a special soothing capacity that they cannot understand or render. I have a special approach about this because I know that sometimes it goes a bit off the deep end, but I would only add that the creature doesn't understand your language but your affection which is their way of making someone else very uncomfortable. If you used the cat to torment him then you caused a problem which I am very familiar with and I loved the dog who was involved with our relationship very much and the other person used this in a way that was totally disturbing. But we don't know the other side of the episode which like a bad marriage where one spouse will say that her chosen was a total Assh@#e which brings one to the conclusion that if you agreed to the union then exactly who are you talking about.

Go online and listen to Historical Scholars like Bart Erhman, The Atheist Experience which broadcasts live and on line every week from Austin Texas, Christopher Hitchens. All of these can be found on You Tube and they have debates that they do not loose if you care to learn something. What is really worth listening about is the fact that all of these individuals at one time in their lives were totally devout Christians who went on to seek the truth only to find out that it was all one big lie. Lets begin with the four evangelists all of whom were illiterate fishermen whom could neither read or write. I may have over extended my paragraph so I'll let you tell me what else you would like to hear maybe after you listened to those whom I have listed and where to find them.

What are some of your best deals?
Nevermind345 comments on Feb 28, 2018:
Clothes, Furniture and what ever you didn't know you would like. I was in Construction in NYC for 30 yrs and there are a few outlets like "Cheap Joes" and a few others that you have to go into to see what they are "giving away" If I needed an emergency buy then you had to had a preview to remember where. If you travel to NYC into Penn Station your in a good area for browsing especially up and about 7th, 8th Aves between like 23rd st to 46st. If you make the trip do it with the time to take the walk and go into every store. For Shoes and accessories I will go to Burlington Coat Factory or others and find there sale section which is usually cut down real low but you only have to find the right size and then your set because they can have top name shoes at 75% off. Furniture is my favorite because I like to refinish wood. Only real wood and the older and scratchier it is the better because it doesn't have 5 coats of paint on it. One coat is a major problem and you don't know. Again I will only get real wood and if you go and buy a sander or do it by hand all you need to know is that once you get to bare wood you will understand how simple it is. Applying the stain and whether to varnish or shellac is something that you will understand. Another thing is that one you get going you really get to see the beauty of wood and you can spend as much time as you want because it only gets better. You will also need to learn about steel wool, sand papers, razor knives and the different types. Its a real joy when your done and find out how much you have really learned and it will get easier each time.
