Rim Champ Speaks out

What is the difference between the teaching of intelligent design in science curriculums in some districts and ?dangerous drug? mythology in health curriculums in all school districts? Neither creationists nor prohibitionists offer any legitimate scientific evidence to support their agendas and neither makes even the slightest pretense to follow scientific methods ? a fact that is not widely reported in the corporate media. However, only one of these two pseudoscience curriculums causes major societal problems. Among them are:
1] Is the sole justification for social policy costing multibillions to taxpayers at all levels. Policy disproportionately punishes low income and minority communities.
2] This policy causes well over half the violent crime and a sizeable portion of other reported crime.
3] This policy provides over half the income for all criminal organizations.
4] The ignorance promoted allows a multibillion dollar industry to promote over reliance and dependency to increase sales of its product.
5] Ignorance induces agencies to restrict access to products listed above. Ignorance increases unfair lawsuits over legitimate products that are misused by consumers.
6] Misuse of products is due to substitution of pseudoscience for education.
7] It makes multimillions in tax breaks available to organizations to promote its pseudoscience to the public.
8] It produces bogus studies to support its pseudoscience and corporate media publishes them without comment ? despite objections by critics.
Only one of these mythologies is being challenged in court ? and it?s not the one causing all the problems. Is this a great country or what?

I guess when pseudoscience drives billion dollar industries and governmental agencies the distinction between reality and media generated fantasy blurs – a lot.

As You Slide Down The Banister Of Life…

1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book.
It’s called “Ministers Do More Than Lay People.”

2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary.

3. The difference between the Pope and your boss…the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you’re in the

6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink
spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course,
there’s shipping and handling, too.

8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives
the impression that he just cleaned the whole house.

9. My next house will have no kitchen – just vending machines and a large trash can.

10. A blonde said, “I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off.
I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid.”

11. I’m so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for
Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a
condemned building.

12. My neighbour was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and
found him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated, and he didn’t have to worry about a Will. He said, “Will? What Will? I’m making a list of the people I want to bite.”

13 Definition of a teenager? God’s punishment for enjoying sex.

14. As we slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.

Will it take a Tory to legalise drugs?

This a must read for the anti-drug warriors
From the text of his Blog:………………………..in Cameron’s words – “about the only thing all our witnesses agreed on was that the Government’s strategy was a failure and prohibition of drugs over many decades had not worked”. They explained the truth: criminalisation does not kill the drugs industry. It simply hands it over to armed criminal gangs who flood the country with guns, terrorise their neighbourhoods, and drain resources that would be better spent helping and treating addicts.

FEMA, La. outsource Katrina body count to firm implicated in body-dumping scandals

This company has been in Weirdharold’s face before

From early 1984 to 1989 I worked in the funeral supply business in Eastern PA. The company was very small. I was the COO and my bonus was set up upon growing the company in sales and profit.

SCI was getting bigger and bigger as they bought more and more Funeral Homes. At the same time they were buying funeral supply companies.

By 1988 all I had to do make a sale was go into a Funeral Home that was independent of SCI and casually let them know I was not in anyway connected with SCI. The fiscal year July 1 1987 to June 30 1988 sales were increased by 30% and profits were increased over 100%. This is in a business that increases overall at a rate of 3.5% for that period of time.

I was given a bonus that created so much jealously on the board that I was fired. So much for doing a great job.

The Bridge and the Southern Lady

A very gentle Southern lady was driving across the Savannah River Bridge in Georgia one day.

As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixing (ready) to jump.

She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, “Please don’t jump, think of your dear mother and father.”

He! replied, “Mom and Dad are both dead; I’m going to jump.”

She said, “Well, think of your wife and children.”
He replied, “I’m not married and I don’t have any kids.”

She said, “Well, think of Robert E. Lee.”

He replied, ”Who’s Robert E. Lee?”

She replied, ”Well bless your heart, just go ahead and jump, you dumb ass Yankee.”

Let’s make a law

Faith, Not Religion nor Politics

When an individual acts outside our notion of basic moral behavior. We insist that a law be made to correct this carnage. We of little faith think we must put in the hands of men to correct all form of spiritual illness. We place all forms of power in the hands in mere mortals. When these laws do not work our faith lessens and we demand harsher punishment.

2000 years ago a man came to address this issue, while He never confronted the man made laws with a frontal assault; he did in acts of faith and in action answer how our faith was more of the answer than man made laws. At His time on earth the old Mosaic Law was in place where He lived. When He was questioned about the law, a man can put away his wife for any reason. They referred to it as Mosaic Law. He referred to it as hardness of their heart made it so.

It is a lack of faith or hardness of our heart when we demand harsher laws to deal with drug/alcohol use. Capital punishment is another example of both.
