POVERTY PTSD REDUX

Recently, I wrote about my POVERTY PTSD, and how it has caused me to be overly frugal. I’m happily back to report, that  ………………………..

MY COME TO TRUMP MOMENT

We can all remember, that magic transcendent moment, when we realized Donald Trump was the chosen one of Jesus, the Holy one to whom we must dedicate our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honors. 

For me, it was the moment when ………………

HOW I AM vs HOW I OUGHT TO BE

How I am. I am wrongly (and somewhat comically) inclined to the notion, that I can noticeably affect cosmic change by exposing earthly assholes for what they truly are.

When, I see bullies, thugs, con men, liars and human predators, such as …………….

FEDERAL RESERVE IN A NUT SHELL

THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM EXPLAINED IN A NUT SHELL  

Ordinary people work all of their lives to accumulate some savings in certificates of deposit with banks. The Fed controls the interest rate people receive on those CD’s. The job of the Fed is ……………. 

Grim Reaper in New Harmony

Grim Reaper in New Harmony

I have to question whether that old reaper is all that grim or not. Death seems pretty natural to me, and it is shared by all creatures including all humans. I have been present at a few deaths, and spoken with folks who were present at other deaths. Although I will note, that no central figure in any of these deaths has ever yet reported back to me. 

Some people go out screaming in terror. But, others embrace death with a ………………………………………..

BOOKS

New Harmony, Indiana lends itself to reading and quiet reflection. But, no matter where you are, teach your kids to read books, and they won’t grow up to be Mike Pence.

Thank you for your service?

The “thank you for your service” in New Harmony, Griffin and Posey County Indiana is about 50 years late for Vietnam vets.

The past couple of weeks, I have had at least half dozen folks say to me, thank you for your service, in regard to me having been in the Vietnam war.  I always try to be polite, when this happens and assume that people mean well.

But in point of actual fact, this irks me, because ………..

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

In the winter of 1825-1826 Robert Owen and Robert McClure brought a large keel boat loaded with scientists, teachers, philosophers, writers and other learned people from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to New Harmony, Indiana. They traveled from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, down the Ohio river to the mouth of the Wabash river, and then up the Wabash to New Harmony. It was arguably the largest gathering of learned people to ever assemble on a single boat.

Philadelphia’s loss was New Harmony’s gain,  and neither city has ever been the same, since.

Robert Owen called it the BOAT LOAD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church in New Harmony, Indiana

Serene spiritual, old world charm can be found at  ST STEVEN’S EPISCOPAL  CHURCH in New Harmony, Indiana.  I am in no way affiliated with this church, and can’t speak for it, but my observation, as a member of the community, is that St Steven’s offers a home for ………………

Speak out

Speak out AGAINST lying and adultery and Trump supporters question your patriotism.

Speak out in FAVOR of Christ’s teachings of love, tolerance and kindness to strangers and the evangelicals question your spirituality.

Speak out to SUPPORT succor for the poor and weak and  the Republicans call you a socialist commie maggot. 

When you speak out, don’t anticipate wide approval.

Please send me no money

 I see a trend.  Everyday, folks offer me advice on how to have a “better” life or how to save the world from ruin. What they have in common is they all want me to send them a check. 

God’s messenger always seems to say, that God’s message is to give God’s messenger money.

To counter that trend, I offer some priceless tips, completely free gratis from a certifiably old person.
