Homeless Outsider!

So yesterday was a weird one, some awesome news in that I have a start date for a new job which I am so pleased about. I still have my old job and had my job interview for the new one just before lockdown kicked in. It’s all been on hold with Covin-19 taking hold.

So In order to treat myself, celebrate and kick back and watch a Blu-Ray I thought I would get a chicken burger, fries and a sprite. Lush, lush, lush.

So food is on its way driver can’t find me home and I go out to meet said driver and try and direct him to my flat with no success.

But that first meal was not to be. The driver did not find my address, cancelled my meal and buggered off. Gee thanks Drive.

Well next thing that happens is I now had time to deal with the homeless man that had decide to crash out outside the front of my flat complex. This was not a pleasure, honour or problem that I wished to address.

I went up to the bloke asked if he was ok, at this time he was leaning against a wall with his eyes shut and sitting in the hot sun. I lost count of how many people that had already walked past him blanking him like he might have been asking for change which they were not going to give him.

Lots more happened and I don’t have the heart to write it down here but to cut a long story short, I gave him some water in a plastic milk bottle which he took on his way with himself.

I got my meal in the end from Uber Eats and was told it would be free but still got charged for it. I might chase my money back  on that today will have to see how I go. They might have cancelled the charge I am not sure yet.

My celebrations ended up being having a bath, watching part of the movie and falling asleep and trying not to sound to pissed off when explaining what the hell happened to my parents on the phone.

I was angry not with the homeless man but for want of a better description God. I thought way give me this sh*t show to me to deal with now. Why not give a guy a break for a change and let someone else act like the village idiot for a change?

Oh well another day another dollar.

If you are reading this I hope you are well and have a good day.

Best wishes to you

Origin

Religious views of Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler’s religious beliefs have been a matter of debate. Historians regard Hitler as having anti-Christian[1] and anti-atheist views.[2]

Hitler was born to a practicing Catholic mother, and was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church. In 1904, he was confirmed at the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Linz, Austria, where the family lived.[3] According to John Willard Toland, witnesses indicate that Hitler’s confirmation sponsor had to “drag the words out of him … almost as though the whole confirmation was repugnant to him”.[4] Rissmann notes that, according to several witnesses who lived with Hitler in a men’s home in Vienna, he never again attended Mass or received the sacraments after leaving home at 18 years old.[5]

In his book Mein Kampf and in public speeches prior to and in the early years of his rule, Hitler expressed himself as a Christian.[6][7][8] Hitler and the Nazi party promoted “Positive Christianity“,[9] a movement which rejected most traditional Christian doctrines such as the divinity of Jesus, as well as Jewish elements such as the Old Testament.[10][11] In one widely quoted remark, he described Jesus as an “Aryan fighter” who struggled against “the power and pretensions of the corrupt Pharisees”[12] and Jewish materialism.[13] In his private diaries, Goebbels wrote in April 1941 that though Hitler was “a fierce opponent” of the Vatican and Christianity, “he forbids me to leave the church. For tactical reasons.”[14]

Hitler’s regime launched an effort toward coordination of German Protestants under a unified Protestant Reich Church (but this was resisted by the Confessing Church), and moved early to eliminate political Catholicism.[15] Hitler agreed to the Reich concordat with the Vatican, but then routinely ignored it, and permitted persecutions of the Catholic Church.[16] Smaller religious minorities faced harsher repression, with the Jews of Germany expelled for extermination on the grounds of Nazi racial ideology. Jehovah’s Witnesses were ruthlessly persecuted for refusing both military service and allegiance to Hitler’s movement. Although he was prepared to delay conflicts for political reasons, historians conclude that he ultimately intended the destruction of Christianity in Germany, or at least its distortion or subjugation to a Nazi outlook.[17]

Violence begets violence

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For the album by Jedi Mind Tricks, see Violence Begets Violence.

It Shoots Further Than He Dreams by John F. Knott, March 1918.

The phrase “violence begets violence” (or “hate begets hate”) means that violent behaviour promotes other violent behaviour, in return. The phrase has been used since the 1830s.[1]

Violence begets violence is a concept described in the Gospel of Matthew, verse 26:52.[2][3][4] The passage depicts a disciple (identified in the Gospel of John as Saint Peter) drawing a sword to defend against the arrest of Jesus but being told to sheath his weapon:

“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”[5]

Words by Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929–1968) used the phrase when saying:[6][7][8]

Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love… Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding.[6]

Lady Liberty

What does Lady Liberty represent? The Statue of Liberty stands in Upper New York Bay, a universal symbol of freedom. Originally conceived as an emblem of the friendship between the people of France and the U.S. and a sign of their mutual desire for liberty, over the years the Statue has become much more.

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and its metal framework was built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

The statue is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken shackle and chain lie at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the recent national abolition of slavery.[8] After its dedication, the statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, seen as a symbol of welcome to immigrants arriving by sea.

Ich bin ein Berliner

Ich bin ein Berliner (German pronunciation: [ˈʔɪç ˈbɪn ʔaɪn bɛɐ̯ˈliːnɐ], “I am a Berliner“) is a speech by United States President John F. Kennedy given on June 26, 1963, in West Berlin. It is widely regarded as the best-known speech of the Cold War and the most famous anti-communist speech. Kennedy aimed to underline the support of the United States for West Germany 22 months after Soviet-occupied East Germany erected the Berlin Wall to prevent mass emigration to the West. The message was aimed as much at the Soviets as it was at Berliners and was a clear statement of U.S. policy in the wake of the construction of the Berlin Wall. Another phrase in the speech was also spoken in German, “Lasst sie nach Berlin kommen” (“Let them come to Berlin”), addressed at those who claimed “we can work with the Communists”, a remark at which Nikita Khrushchev scoffed only days later.

The speech is considered one of Kennedy’s best, both a notable moment of the Cold War and a high point of the New Frontier. It was a great morale boost for West Berliners, who lived in an enclave deep inside East Germany and feared a possible East German occupation. Speaking from a platform erected on the steps of Rathaus Schöneberg for an audience of 120,000, Kennedy said,

Universal suffrage (also called universal franchise, general suffrage, and common suffrage of the common man) gives the right to vote to all adult citizens, regardless of wealth, income, gender, social status, race, ethnicity, or any other restriction, subject only to relatively minor exceptions.[1][2] In its original 19th-century usage by reformers in Britain, universal suffrage was understood to mean only universal manhood suffrage; the vote was extended to women later, during the women’s suffrage movement.[3][4]

There are variations among countries in terms of specifics of the right to vote; the minimum age is usually between 18 and 25 years (see age of majority) and “the insane, certain classes of convicted criminals, and those punished for certain electoral offenses” sometimes lack the right to vote.[2]

In the first modern democracies, governments restricted the vote to those with property and wealth, which almost always meant a minority of the male population.[5] In some jurisdictions, other restrictions existed, such as requiring voters to practice a given religion.[6] In all modern democracies, the number of people who could vote has increased progressively with time.[7][8] The 19th century saw many movements advocating “universal [male] suffrage”, most notably in Europe, Great Britain and North America.[9][10]

In the United States, after the principle of “one man, one vote” was established in the early 1960s by U.S. Supreme Court under Earl Warren,[11][12] the U.S. Congress together with the Warren Court continued to protect and expand the voting rights of all Americans, especially African Americans, through Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965 and several Supreme Court rulings.[13][14] In addition, the term “suffrage” is also associated specifically with women’s suffrage; a movement to extend the franchise to women began in the mid-nineteenth century and culminated in 1920, when the United States ratified the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, guaranteeing the right of women to vote.

Yggdrasil

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For other uses, see Yggdrasil (disambiguation).

Yggdrasil (from Old Norse Yggdrasill) is an immense mythical tree that plays a central role in Norse cosmology, where it connects the Nine Worlds.

Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things, traditional governing assemblies. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the dragon Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór.

Scholars generally consider Hoddmímis holt, Mímameiðr, and Læraðr to be other names for the tree. The tree is an example of sacred trees and groves in Germanic paganism and mythology, and scholars in the field of Germanic philology have long discussed its implications.

Lockdown Lunacy!

I did a post yesterday called Coronovirus-Apocolypse, to be honest as I am not a Christian and I in no way believe that there will ever be an apocalypse and believe it to be to all intense purposes Scholar’s negative propaganda and a stitch up to force people to believe that there messsiah is the only being in exisitence that can save your soul.

To claim that the good guy (Jesus Christ) will only arrive after the bad guy (the anti-Christ) turns up is absolute horse shit. One person was even boastfully claiming in a blog comments section yesterday that all Christians and Jews are the good guys and all Muslims and atheists are in some ways in cahoots with the Devil and all Muslims want all Christians dead.

Nobody thought this was wrong and challenged his delusion how can good hearted, righteous minded none Christians, none atheist and none Muslims none Jews operate in such a world where views are peddled by people that hate any opposite view. So much so that what is said or done is no longer relevant what matters to them is what colour religion your supporting. Religion today is less about spiritual enlightenment and metaphysical nourishment than it is about which team you support and why you are the good guys and the others are bad. Its utter, utter bollocks.
