This Week In Crazy: Ted Nugent Saves Independence Day, And The Rest Of The Worst Of The Right

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

For years, Fox News has slammed President Barack Obama for presiding over a sluggish economic recovery that has featured stubbornly high unemployment. So the network must have been thrilled with Thursday’s expectations-shattering jobs report, right?

Not so much.

As Media Matters for America points out, Fox News buried the happy story on its website, instead of prominently featuring it like its competitors did. Then, when discussing the report on air, the network chose to focus on the “real unemployment rate” of 12.1 percent, before quickly pivoting to a discussion of a recent poll suggesting that Americans wish that Mitt Romney were president.

But nobody on Fox was more bummed about the nation’s robust job creation and declining unemployment rate than Fox Business host Charles Payne, who suggested that the new report is actually “too good.”

If anyone knows what sends stock prices tumbling, it’s this guy.

For those of you keeping score at home, the strong jobs report actually helped the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit an all-time high of 17,068. But fear not, Fox: Somewhere out there, Jack Welch is surely tracking down the real numbers.

    Makers of medication to treat paranoia, and psychiatrists, would make record profits if these radical zealots were convinced to seek professional treatment.

        Happy 4th of July to you, your family, and friends.

      • Dominick Vila

        A word of caution on the DOW Index record high, a market correction is long overdue. 50 consecutive months of solid economic growth is nothing short of unbelievable, and the P/E ratio of some stocks is unrealistic. I would not be surprised to see a 2 or 3 thousand point drop, followed by a strong rebound.

        • charleo1

          I don’t disagree with that. The market is over priced. Or more like run up, with the purchasing of large chunks of stock, [computerized buying,] tends to cause. Then, back down the other side, roll-a coaster, like. I do hope it’s not a 2/3 thousand drop. If so, a rebound would certainly be warranted in my opinion. Mostly due to some solid underlying strengths returning to the general economy. Like confidence of consumers to purchase big ticket items on credit. The builders have cranked up the dozers again in a big way here in Miami. Anecdotal, I realize. But it is their business to know when. Plus there is just a lot of pent up demand throughout the economy right now. I read the average age of cars on the road is 11.5 years. The banks are advertising home loans again. And the sounds of hammers pounding can be heard across my little sector, as new homes are going up all around us. I only wish wages were more tightly tied to profits. But, wages themselves are soon due to be under some pressure to rise. Large companies continue to be well capitalized. And there’s only so much stock to buy back, competition to buy out, or CEO’s pay to increase, until stock holders start to demand expansion in an economy that looking pretty darn good lately. Perhaps I’m too optimistic, as it’s not up to us anymore, in an inter-connected Global Economy. ISIS just captured another oil well in Iraq, for example. And I see the definite possibility of some kind of war in the cards ahead for the U.S. My confidence that the improving economy is real, is grounded mostly in the pent up demand factors, and the overall improvement in consumer confidence that things are not yet great, but stable, and improving. Fox News, notwithstanding. I think they actually expect the gloom, and doom from Fox.

          • Dominick Vila

            Low interest rates are also a major factor for our economic recovery. I hope we don’t get involved in Iraq again. Al Maliki is a lousy leader. A puppet. Whether or not the Kurds want to pursue their historical goal of a Kurdistan than encompasses parts of Iraq, Syria, and Iran is none of our business. The same goes for Iraqi and Syrian Sunnis forming a Caliphate. That’s their business. There are still too many things to do at home, to worry about what a bunch of medieval religious zealots want to do.

          • charleo1

            Sure, I would hope the Fed doesn’t jump the gun on
            rates. And could not agree with your assessment of
            Maliki more. He’s looked upon even by the Shia as a puppet of the U.S. And they are not wrong about
            the Bush Administration hoping to make him so. Plus, I don’t believe Maliki is actually interested in governing a unified Iraq. At this point it is a religious
            war, with oil. But, it also effects the nuclear containment talks now being held with Iran. (If you
            were the Grand Puba of Iran, would you think about
            disarming, or upping your capabilities, at this point?)
            Plus, there is the Europeans and their dependence
            on oil from the region. You’re right, we have plenty on our plate here. But, I just see too many big money interests in going into some action there. And big money interests run this Country. I’m satisfied about that. We will see.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I’m almost inclined to think that Iran should have damn near as much interest in quelling this Isis crap as Israel does. I do hope that Iran is not too adversely affected as it seems that a good deal of radicalism there had begun to moderate.

          • charleo1

            They do! They are also Shia ruled, in league with the minority Muslim, aligned against the Saudi, on the other end of this mess. Right now, if the Iraqi Army could beat the insurgents, it would solve a lot of the immediate problems of the U.S. It would also serve to strengthen Iran, and Assad in Syria, as well as Hezzbollah, in Lebanon, and boost Hamas in Palestine, and give Netanyahu a big headache. Such a friend of Israel, was G. Bush, and the NeoCons.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I always said and always caught a lot of crap for saying that we should never give Israel carte blanche.They are as guilty of keeping the shit stirred up over there as anyone else and the powers that be turn a blind eye to Israeli terrorism.Their own obstinacy causes at least some of their opponents to feel that terrorism is their only option for dealing with them,of course that just generates that much more violence.

          • charleo1

            Well, the UN mandate that created Israel after the
            Second World War, was done using a Western power structure, that no longer exists. The fact is, we and the British no longer rule the Middle East, if we ever did. And the realities, that the Arab will never consent willingly to a Jewish State, on what they consider their land, matters a lot more today, than it did in 1946. I don’t believe that Americans fully understand the deep seated determination of the entire Middle East, to right what they see as an intolerable imposition. Not only to them as a people, but to their religion, which motivates almost all of their politics, and daily lives. It also reminds them on a daily basis, of their own inability to unite as one people, or tribe, under one religion, as they believe their Prophet Mohammad intended. The thought is, if not around this, then what, and if ever? And therefore Israel becomes the rallying point that consumes the lives of some of their most radical religious leaders. But radical or not, to the Arab, all conflicts with the West, begin and end in Palestine. And you are absolutely correct, Israel has pushed to expand the land granted by UN Charter, almost from day one. Claiming ancient title to the land outside their pre-1967, de facto borders, as their moral underpinning. Doing as is often described as, “Eating the pizza, while negotiating over the remaining pieces of the pie.” But the larger fact is, there is actually never any real peace talks, and there most likely will never be any either. No matter which one or two leaders pop up on wheel, to do the talking. And that includes our leaders as well. Especially after the Iraq War. The Arab on the street thinks of the U.S. as the Devil. And any Arab leader that would take seriously any agreement in which we had played a role, would be eliminated. The factions in this Country generally known as the Jewish Lobby, or Zionists, aided and abided by the zealots in the Evangelical Christian movement, is one of the foremost reasons we no longer can be the peace negotiator, able to even mitigate the damage when the pressure cooker explodes. This fact was plainly demonstrated to the Arab, and the World. As Republicans in Congress gave hard liner, Bibi Netanyahu a standing, O, while bashing President Obama for, “Throwing Israel under the bus,” the fabrication went. For stating what has been the position of U.S. Presidents going back as far as Nixon,is not now near good enough.

          • Mark Forsyth

            Not that there wasn’t ever enough radicalism in the mid East.Other than the more recent evolution of the Wahabist sect and their nonsense,those damn ragbags and Jews have been going at it since long before the time of Christ.They all are dedicated to the destruction of the other and won’t quit until they both have made themselves extinct.America needs to insure that we are not included in that process.Those folks give us a clear picture as to the reason why fundamentalism of any sort is destructive.
            You and I both know the flip flopping nature of a specific political party,not that we don’t see it elsewhere. Oil,Guns,and Money,I have always found the era of the British and Lawrence of Arabia of particular interest as far as how it has influenced the mid-East circumstances.Curiouser yet is how we have been influenced in regard to who are the good guys and the bad guys.

          • Barbara Morgan

            I agree and have said the same things for years and get called all kinds of names for calling Israel a terrorist country also. I wasn’t a big fan of Israel and its policies before their war plane attacked the USS Liberty back in the 70’s. The Liberty was in international water no where close to Israel with both the US Flag and their Naval flags displayed and the day was clear. Suddenly they were under attack by a war jet. The pilot attacked with guns blazing the sailors on deck didn’t have a chance, the pilot even gunned down sailors holding a white sheet showing the boat was surrendering. captain used the radio channel that the two countries used to communicate land to plane, ship to plane in both English and Jewish pilot never answered them, he attacked the ship until he ran out of ammo and then flew away. I do not remember how many sailors were murdered that day or how many were seriously injured but do know that Israel claimed it was an accident the pilot had the sun in his eyes. President Jimmy Carter and Congress said it was an accident even though no one from the US ever got to talk to the pilot nor was anyone given his name and why he was so far out in international waters. It was also reported that the pilot was given a medal for the attack, that could never be proved nor could be disproved.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I have a vague remembrance of that event.Just goes to show how much we have been compromised and how much we have been paying for that mid-East oil.I would really like to know what went into the burying of that incident.

          • Barbara Morgan

            To keep people that didn’t trust Israel then and today from using it to show why Israel is a terrorist country just like it neighbors and the US being forced by it’s citizens to cut back on the foreign aid Israel gets and the discounts for weapons they are given. Check out how we have several members of Congress that are Jewish who represents Israel’s interests before they do the interest of the people that voted for them. Even when Jewish organizations in the US have questioned why Israel gets passes for some of it’s terrorist’s act when other Countries are punished or at least called a terrorist Country they are ignored by the media and Congress. Great many people in this Country think Israel is our only real ally in the Far East so we have to support in everything they do no matter what they do. They don’t realize that Israel causes a lot of its own problems and keeps doing stuff that keeps Palestine away from the peace talk table, and angers other Middle East Countries. The Jews that created Israel from stolen land aren’t the descendants of Abraham and Issac, who God gave the promised land to, they are descendants of a Northern European Jew. The people of Palestine according to DNA tests are closer to being the descendants of Abraham and Issac than Jewish people that created Israel

          • Dominick Vila

            There is no doubt in my mind that there are special interests that would love nothing more than another “crusade”. Hopefully President Obama will have the fortitude to resist their overtures and keep us out of that nightmare.
            When Bush replaced Saddam and the Sunnis with Shias aligned to Iran, he changed the balance of power in that part of the world in favor of our, alleged, nemesis. It is in Iran’s interest to keep al-Maliki and the Shias in power. A Sunni Caliphate and a well organized and equipped Kurdistan is the last thing Iran wants. The consequence of Bush’s myopic decision is that we now find ourselves siding with the Ayatollahs to keep a much more dangerous and radical enemy at bay.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I think a very large segment of Americans will refuse to see the economic improvement until it translates to more money in their paychecks.I know that I may be the odd man out,but I don’t always see an increase in homebuilding as a positive,especially when there are so many unoccupied,empty,and unused structures.So often I have seen these massive, supposedly single family homes built,only to remain empty so long that the community is lucky if they are able to convert them into apartments and once again we find ourselves fighting with the banks about what to do with these things.
            Sorry to sound so negative,I know that the economy is improving and I don’t need an expert to tell me so.I rather hate to see the same old shit happen over and over again.I guess what I’m saying is that just because certain entities have the money to build,does not always mean that they should or that doing so is always a good thing.

          • charleo1

            Well, I think that pretty much describes the feeling
            of many of us. A sort of we’ve been here before, and
            I’ll believe it when I see it where it counts. That’s only smart thinking, after what we’ve all been through. I’m still predicting good solid gains, with some momentum building, as things continue to improve. Lots of pent up demand.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I hope you’re right,time will tell all.

          • plc97477

            I think the housing bubble of the bushies made everyone a little nervous about the housing market.

          • Mark Forsyth

            Well I’ll tell ya,if it wasn’t enough to make folks nervous I don’t want to see what will do it.

        • jnap

          The P/E of the S&P stocks are not that high but more importantly, if you take your money out of the market where else are you going to get a decent return coupled with growth?

          • Dominick Vila

            Gold was a good choice 3 or 4 years ago, but it is now way over priced. Real estate may be a good investment. Prices are low, and demand is high. I think the stock market will remain at its present level until interest rates start going up, which they will inevitably will.
            In any case, I find the desperate attempts by the GOP to convince Americans that our economy is in shambles nothing short of comical. Our is, and will continue to be, the strongest economy in the world for years to come. Our GDP is second to none, our companies are growing and profiting, inflation is low, interest rates are low, and the record high DOW index represents the strength of our economy and a level of consumer confidence that augurs continued economic success. Fortunately for the GOP, our Democratic strategists and political leaders seem incapable of articulating the gains that have been made, and the contrast of our current circumstances with the disaster that prevailed between 2007 and 2010.

          • charleo1

            Excellent Post, as usual!!!

          • Barbara Morgan

            Dominick, you are good at using words to help others understand the real facts. Could we get you to write about and show how our economy has improved due to President Obama and the Democratic Party, how the GOP and Tea parties policies have done nothing to help the Country and 98% of its people and send it to the National Democratic Party to use so they can present the facts better than they do now. Your posts and several others on this site is what the Democrats need be saying and showing in order to get their message across not the fluff stuff I have been reading and hearing recently.

      • Russell Byrd

        Thanks for the link.

  • JDavidS

    Ted “The Motor City Moron” Nugent… Third-rate musician, dead-beat father, pedophile, gutless…Shits his pants and sits in it for a week to dodge serving his country and now tries to come off as Captain America, the last true patriot. This asshole is beneath contempt. People scrape crap off of the bottom of their boots that’s more intelligent, has more courage, more morals and more honour that this pile of fetid maggot shit. Crawl back into your hole, slime.

    • ps0rjl

      I couldn’t agree more with you. He talks a good game but past history shows that if a battle breaks out between Ted’s patriots and us liberals, Ted will be shitting his pants somewhere afraid to stand up. Even though I opposed the war in Vietnam, I served my country as a Marine during Vietnam. How the NRA can have him on their board certainly says something about that organization. His actions to avoid service in Vietnam certainly trumps anything else he stands for.
      On another note, I love the Week in Crazy article and I look forward to it.

      • plc97477

        I too look forward to the “week in crazy” Thank you Decker for your article.

      • Barbara Morgan

        Thank you for your service, I have several cousins and friends that also served and went to Nam although they opposed their war also. One cousin and one friend that I know of has been fighting the damage done to them by agent orange, the friend has Parkinson disease because of it and my cousin has had a cancerous kidney removed and is fighting lung cancer now because of agent Orange. Nugent and others like him should be put on an undeveloped island and told to make the kind of Country they want and stay the heck out of ours and take the 5 Republican Supreme Court Justices with you, All Republican and Tea party members of Congress especially Boehner, his American worker hating 2nd wife, McConnell, Limbaugh, Beck Trump and the 3 Koch brothers. You can take all you own if it will fit on the boat, and your guns and ammo but nothing else. Lets see how long you all last when all of you want to be the dictator.
        My younger brother served in the Air Force during part of the Nam years, he didn’t serve in Nam but was stationed at an Arctic base keeping early warning systems working.

    • idamag

      You said it like it is.

    • Mark Forsyth

      Nugent doesn’t qualify for the high designation of shit or even being one of the dregs of society.He is little more than a diseased bacterial microbe that is best stamped out.

      • Russell Byrd

        So Mark, are you saying that Shit sat under some “Nugent” for a whole week to avoid the draft? I think I can speak for you and say, pity the Shit. :-)

        • Mark Forsyth

          Since the Nuge seems to like swimming in it,and we all know he is full of it,someone should take his head off and crap down his throat.He isn’t even a decent rocker.

          • Russell Byrd

            He had one real hit, which on reflection was not that big of a deal, back in the late 60’s? Nothing but shit, ROTFL!, ever since.

            I’d much rather resurrect my old ‘Nam Vet friend Carlos Hathcock with his 50 Cal.. Nuge would never know what hit him. Hope that you have had a good 4th of July,Russell.

          • Russell Byrd

            Thank you, Mark. My 4th hasn’t been bad. I hope yours was good.

            For what little it’s worth. Though I did not know him, I wish your friend was still with us. And staying in practice by riveting Nuge’s cowardly ass to the wall.

            Really, as seriously as I have ever said anything. A draft-dodging, racist, pedophile, alcoholic coward that goes around talking like he walked out of a Sgt. Rock comic, just makes me so sick I could scream, literally scream.

            Like “jnap” asked, “isn’t Nugent dead or in jail.” That is what the Nuge “promised” us. Why can’t he keep his promise Mark and give us this little bit of Heaven?

          • Mark Forsyth

            Carlos Hathcock was a Marine Gunny Sargent and a famous Vietnam era Sniper with a very impressive number of confirmed kills.You can google him if you like.

          • Russell Byrd

            Thank you Mark, I knew the name was familiar, but I doubt I would ever have place him without help. I will google him tomorrow. I get tired and I get forgetful.

          • Russell Byrd

            Thanks Barbara, now that you sent me that reply, I found out that my name must be Russell. Thanks again for the reminder. :-)

          • Russell Byrd

            By the way Mark, totally off-topic, but that delusional James Bowen’s posts trickle in to my email hours after he has made them. Just one at a time. Half of them go straight to trash. Which is about all they are. Do you have any thoughts as to why this would happen. Not that you would or should know, but I am just curious.

          • Mark Forsyth

            I haven’t a clue Russ.Sometimes even mail from daily contacts goes there.I’m always checking it to make sure that I don’t miss something.I think it might be a settings issue.

          • Barbara Morgan

            Russell, I have some emails from different organizations that I keep up end up on spam or in the trash and I think that happens because I don’t always delete their messages after reading them and my email site can’t handle anymore email at that time.

          • Russell Byrd

            Like your three emails, apparently before this one. They came in one at a time, which may be correct, since you seem to be posting at this moment. Yet, every time I open and read one, when I go back to my inbox, the message is gone. I did not delete the message, and it did not in the “trash.” But, just gone. I have had one or two messages like that pop back up a couple of days later. I have A.T.&T. as a provider and they use Yahoo mail. Which is about as near nothing as there is.

          • Barbara Morgan

            I have AT& T and use Yahoo myself. I am on the National Memo site reading and replying to some of the post on this week’ in crazy I haven’t read earlier. Trying to make myself sleeping but won’t getting that here.

          • Russell Byrd

            I am guessing you are right.

            Yeah, “This Week In Crazy.” might actually get boring, but it certainly does not exercise a calming effect. Enough to give one nightmares, knowing that “they” are out there among us.

            Sleep well.

          • Mark Forsyth

            Why Barbara,I’m surprised at you.Do you want to add some bleach as well? Ouch!!!

          • Barbara Morgan

            Yes I would I can’t stand Nugent. I know or knew to many men that served in Nam and are still paying for going to war when they were drafted. One is a first cousin who has been another brother because our families was real close he lost a kidney because of the cancer caused by his exposure to agent orange and now has lung cancer due to agent orange. A friend is in the last stages of Parkinson disease due agent orange. When draft dodger Nugent is mentioned I get angry and want to kick him in the groin and knock his false teeth out because he is draft dodger and a big time lying false patriot.

          • Mark Forsyth

            Yeah, I get it,I just had to chuckle a little at your first comment.Well,I am starting to fade this evening so I will sign off and catch you later.Pleasant Dreams.

          Maybe a little “RAID” might do the trick

            Do they sell RAID in five gallon drums with a fire hose sprayer? I think we will need a bunch, and like Mark said, we don’t want to get to close. Something might jump off.

        • Barbara Morgan

          Why watch the channel that shows his hunting show? Best way to get it taken off the air so you don’t have to change channels, start a boycott of the people that sponsor him and leave your tv off the channel that shows it. A lot of companies that used to advertise on Limbaugh shows no longer do and he broadcasting on smaller stations, one city where his shows airs shows classical music getting higher ratings than him. Start a Shoot Nugent down and off the air group. You could probably come up with a better name for it.

            Come to think of it Barbara,I seldom tune into that channel anymore.It’s called the Outdoorsman Channel.I didn’t notice it so much years ago but it seems like the programming is increasingly “redneck” anymore.The shows don’t really represent the hunting and fishing that I engage in and I don’t relate to the mindset of the people on those shows.
            Since I will be paying my cable bill today,I might say something about it when I’m in the office.

        The faith of the under endowed in intelligence is generally equates with a magic talisman. God? He is just the bully that they use to justify their ignorance and bigotry. He is literally their “comfort” that allows them to be as they are. Whether He likes it or not. In contrast, I am quite sure If they lived in Japan, they would be raving Shintoists.

        This whole thing about Jesus being pale, blond, and blue eyed is just part of creating an artificial universe where everything revolves around their understanding. Even if that understanding is based on pure ignorance and bigotry.

    The way Alinsky has entered the vocabulary of prominent RWNJ’s makes you believe they all have the same ghostwriter. Which in case of WND articles may actually be true. I guess Ted just phones in his stuff drunk and Farah and Unruh write it up and spice it with their regular propaganda keywords.

    I wonder if anyone has polled the country to find out how many people voted for Obama to see the nuge dead or in jail. I can’t say it was my only reason but it was up there in the top ten. He apparently has not noticed that it seems to be the red states that are cutting schools to the quick, I think mostly to keep people voting repug.

    • charleo1

      Limbaugh said he was moving to Puerto Rico, if healthcare reform
      passed. Maybe Rush figured his Oxy would be easier to obtain he went offshore? The problem with the economies in Red States, is the GOPers run them like a criminal enterprise. With a huge percentage of the wealth created in their states, going to into the well lined pockets of the connected. Leaving meager crumbs to pay for education, infrastructure, and most importantly, good solid wages that come with health benefits, and retirement. That create strong consumer markets within their States. Then, their tax bases fall to crap, so they starve their State’s economy even more, while leaning on the Federal Gov. to take up the slack. And finally, local taxes rise, people rightly bitch, and they blame Federal spending. And this is where all the cutting education finally pays off in the worst possible way. People don’t know a Federal Tax, from a hot dog tax. Believe them, and put on very funny looking hats, and spout very obnoxiously ignorant things they will probably be sorry for one of these days.

  • atc333

    The GOP and those individuals who are blindly continuing to believe in failed “trickle up” economics imposed by the past three GOP Administrations resulting in a massive redistribution of America’s wealth to the top 2%, have wounded this Nation and its people far more than any terrorist attack could ever have hoped for.

    Despite this obvious truth, and the continuous struggling and suffering of those trying to make ends meet, the GOP continues to hawk its snake oil economic theories, even as many of those who are living in Southern “Red” states continue to rely upon Federal and state safety nets to survive . Despite the obvious need for job creation, new and rebuilt infrastructures, as well as medical care, those same GOP politicians continue to demand more tax cuts for “job creators”, smaller government, and spending cuts in those very programs which allow those same GOP voters to continue to survive.

    Go figure..

    Klingenschmitt might be interested to know that the entire U.S. history can be summarized as a loose collection of events in which people claimed to have God on their side and were immediately proven wrong in epic fashion. The British Monarchs, Confederate slavers and Nazi supporters all said that they had God on their side too. Ask them how that worked out for them.

    Ted Nugent is a dope smoking, cocaine snorting, pedophile who specialized in having sex with underage groupies. He is the perfect poster child for the right wing Oxy taking crowd, you know people like Limbaugh.
    To say the right wing is unhinged is and understatement, and you just can’t make this stuff up, even if you pushed your imagination to the brink trying to tin k up crazy shit

    Not to politicize the thought, but exactly now, it occurred to me that IF “corporations are people,” which I am certain is not true, yet even so, THEN is our Republic of “We The People,” not the highest of living entities and corporate rights pale in comparison to it?

  • GREG SIMPSON

    Thanks for the information Ted, I did not know President Obama accomplished all the things you wrote in your article.In only 5 yrs.How did he manage all this with Republican obstruction since 2009?

  • Barbara Morgan

    The two gay men will get to heaven but Gordon Klingenschmitt won’t. He needs to read the New Testament and what Jesus said to group of people that were similar to him and the extreme religious right( the fake christians). He told them others would be going to heaven but they wouldn’t be . Don’t remember the exact words nor the book and chapter but that is what he told them in my words.Matter of fact Klingenschmitt and all fake christians need to sit down and read the Bible so they can understand their nitpicking certain verses or stating verses wrongly so people will buy into their thinking and actions will send them straight to hell not others
    Republicans want to practice human sacrifice , it they didn’t they wouldn’t cut safety nets, and want to go to war everytime we turn around.
    Ted Nugent needs to put in a vat of Pine Sol and Lysol he still has that sh– stink from the Nam years.

    • Russell Byrd

      I think in the simplest terms, the message of Christ was love and tolerance.

      Not too many days ago, I got into a serious argument with a former intern of mine. He could not understand that I am a serious admirer of Jesus, and that I am a believer in His teachings, but NO LONGER profess that religion that he is so addicted to. He could not understand that there could be any truth to what I had said. He was argumentative in a very confused way. When I looked him right in the face, his eyes were crossed. I have seen this look before. It is the look of breathtaking stupidity and thought so rigid you’d think he was a corpse with rigor mortis.

      He finally challenged me with a meaningless question, when I outflanked him on it anyway, he immediately declared victory, and ran, literally, out the door. I hope that I do not have to deal with him again.

      Oh yeah, I forgot. Amen.

      • Barbara Morgan

        People like your former intern I don’t even try to have a conversation with because when they open their mouths to speak they put their brain in park causing the brain to not work. I worship in my own way by doing what Jesus said about helping the ones that need it and doing unto others as I want them to do unto me.

        • Russell Byrd

          I totally agree with your analysis.

          When I was very young i was extremely religious, yet I was never pushy or aggressive about it. It is a long, and I am sure a very uninteresting discussion, but now, I have absolutely no faith at all. Yet, as I described in my post, I do still have trust in what was true and good in my former faith.

          As your words ring very true, I have great respect for your belief, almost envy, and I hope the strength of your convictions carries you forward with happiness. Always feel free to send me your ideas. Your post was greatly appreciated.

            Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!)
            Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace,
            and saw, within the moonlight in his room,
            making it rich and like a lily in bloom,
            An Angel writing in a book of gold:
            Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold,
            And to the presence in the room he said,
            “What writest thou?” The vision raised its head,
            And with a look made all sweet accord
            Answered. “The names of those who love the Lord.”
            “And is mine one?” said Abou. “Nay, not so.”
            Replied the Angel. Abou spoke more low,
            But cheerily still; and said, “I pray thee, then
            Write me as one that who loves his fellow men.”

            The Angel wrote , and vanished. The next night
            it came again with a great wakening light,
            and showed the names whom love of God had blessed,
            And lo! Ben Adhem’s name led all the rest!

            “James Henry Leigh Hunt”

          • Russell Byrd

            I hope that is not in anyway related to me. . . . It is far too complimentary, so I assume it is a tribute to the good-hearted Barbara. I heard that once at a recital, but I don’t think I ever read anything by Mr. Leigh Hunt. That’s odd, because I have been steeped in English Lit since I was a small child. It is my great love, but I read very little these days. Bad eyesight, and far too much internet, which is probably why I have bad eyesight. Add in brain rot from reading winger-wacker rhetoric, and it is a wonder I can still feed myself.

            I loved your post. Be well.

          • Barbara Morgan

            I have never been extremely religious, because my parent weren’t I guess is the reason They were both believers but never tried to convert or push others to believe. Also since my parents never attend one specific church there was no doctrine for one specific religion in our home, There was 5 of us and when we were growing up we attended 3 different churches, One of us chose to attend the Methodist church in my home town, one of us attended the Baptist Church, one attended the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and the other 2 attended all three of them at different times and they also attended the Church of God and the Church of Christ some times. I was taught by my parents to help the less fortunate, we were poor growing up but when there was someone in worst shape than us needed help, Mama and Daddy found a way to help them. They also taught me to do until others as I would have them do until to me. I don’t think I knew that was in the Bible until I was 8-9 years old. Don’t envy my belief because you have beliefs also I can tell that from your post.

          • Russell Byrd

            My mother wasis a believer, I think. :-) My father never professed any belief at all, either way. I became a Baptist, because the neighbors took me to church. I guess, at that young age, I was not resistant to brain washing. Anyway, I became very religious, and very quiet about it. I was encouraged to proselytize, but it was just not in my nature. I guess that is why I never took up sales. I am rather shy, but the real stickler was, I cannot rationalize trying to sell someone something that it never occurred to them they needed. That is what sales people often do, though it depends on the circumstance. Like I said, I was very religious, but I got over that rough spell. :-)

            What fascinates me about your post is the Golden Rule. That is exactly what I believe in. In recent years, I have had more than a few, in fact, probably the majority of so-called Christians tell me that they have never heard of it. A couple of them argued vehemently that it is not in the Bible. My former intern is one of them.

            Well, maybe not exactly, but Jesus of Nazereth summed up the Old Testament thusly, “Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets.” Matthew 7:12. Which not only means Jesus did actually say that, but he obviously had an entirely different take on the Old Testament than the average modern Christian. Modern Christians use the Old Testament as a club to punish and threaten.

            To reign in my potentially runaway rant, I concluded that almost all Christians are not followers of Christ. Coupled with a worship of money, i.e. greed and avarice, or most strangely, worship of others with money, and I DO mean worship, they totally ignore everything that Christ taught. Without giving you a bunch of stories, I will just leave it with the “big picture.”

            I am still angry with my ex-intern. A quiet young man that was very studious. He graduated from a third rate christian school “with honors.” I never had much thought about him personally, one way, or the other. I am not exactly at the top of the social scene either. Well, he started engineering school, and he left us for a job with a small engineering firm as a survey assistant.

            The company that he was working for was a bunch of “holy rollers” themselves. They definitely did not like me much, though I had to deal with them. Maybe a few hints I dropped, or maybe I did not smell write. I guess I smelled a little witchy or something. I used to get a lot of snide remarks from them.

            Anyway, after this incident, I figured I would have to suffer their indignant wrath, but not a word was spoken. In fact, this outfit treated me with utmost respect and we even got to having some laughs. Turns out the “ex” wound up working over in the next state for another company. It was maybe, only 15 miles away from his home, but WHAT happened? I don’t have the nerve to ask.

            I hope you have had a great 4th of July weekend and I wish you to have a great week. Be well.

          • Barbara Morgan

            Thank you. I made a promise to myself many years I would not talk religion or politics with family or friends both subjects can cause a family to break apart and me to lose friends who are good people in most situations. I used to stay quiet and never post when I knew that a speaker or a poster was lying and spreading lies.All that changed when Bush 2 stole the 2000 Presidential election with help of his brother Jeb and US Supreme Court. I still don’t talk politics or religion with family or friends, no one in my family does, sometimes a friend will start to do it When they do , I either sit there and stare at the person or say time for me to leave, they usually change the subject
            I wish there was someway to help people like your former intern to understand when you don’t treat others right and try to force your politics and religious beliefs down their throats you are actually working for the devil and are one of his minions not a real Christian nor a good person. For non believers your have bad Karma and it will sometime down the road bite you in the behind. Some people think because I try to not call people names and lower myself to those people ‘s level I don’t fight back against those people. I do fight but my way of fighting back is something that has taken me very years to learn and practice. Also when my nephews and nieces were young I started using cleaner language after hearing one of them use the same language I used earlier in the day. Take care .

        Amen is God’s favorite word, it means people will soon stop asking for stupid shit. He said so himself! @TheTweetofGod

        Killing one’s family if they do not accept him hardly counts as tolerance. “I bring a sword” does not signify peace and love.

        I don’t remember who’s book claimed he said that, but if we need to take all the bible as truth, that is enough baby to throw out with the bath water, and bath water is all modern day Philistines have to offer.

        • Russell Byrd

          Sorry, but you have me rather confused. I am not a christian. Not anymore, largely because of exactly what you say, but I keep the good that is taught. Christ did not teach the christians to hate. They taught themselves and used their warped religion to justify it. If there is a Hell, and I doubt it, but if there is, at least 90% of American christians are headed there. They will be the best represented of any “class” of people.
