Hey, Eve! Happy God the Father, God the Son, and God the Uncle Day homily

This made its way into my Facebook account yesterday from an interesting fellow who used to winter in Key West. He lives in his van wherever he is, but in Key West living in your motor vehicle was made a crime, even if it's the only home you have and can afford.
Victor Clarke commented on this.
Daily dawns another day;
I must up, to make my way.
Though I dress and drink and eat,
Move my fingers and my feet,
Learn a little, here and there,
Weep and laugh and sweat and swear,
Hear a song, or watch a stage,
Leave some words upon a page,
Claim a foe, or hail a friend —
Bed awaits me at the end.

Though I go in pride and strength,
I’ll come back to bed at length.
Though I walk in blinded woe,
Back to bed I’m bound to go.
High my heart, or bowed my head,
All my days but lead to bed.
Up, and out, and on; and then
Ever back to bed again,
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall —
I’m a fool to rise at all!

I bicycled to Fort Zachary State Park yesterday around 1 p.m., found a vacant picnic table under the Australian pine trees, put my rubber yoga mat on top of table, put my daypack at the top of the mat and a small cushion against the daypack and lay down with a novel to read. Something I have done hundreds of times. Or maybe thousands of times.

As often happens, I dozed off. I had not gotten much sleep the night before, which probably assured I would doze off.

Maybe an hour and a half later, I was woken by a male Hispanic Florida Fish & Wildlife officer, who said I could not sleep on the picnic table, it was for other uses. I could not have my bicycle at the table. He asked for ID. I didn't think he could do that, but to save hassle I gave him my driver's license, showing I live in Key West. He handed it to his male Anglo partner to call in and have run through the background check and it came back clean.

I thought of Naja and Arnaud Girard, who co-publish the blue paper, would find that interesting, given their recent articles blasting Sheriff Rick Ramsay for one of his deputies turning two Hispanic aliens over to Border Patrol after they were involved in two different traffic incidents.

I told the Hispanic F & W officer that I had been sleeping on picnic tables in the park since 2000, and I didn't recall ever seeing Fish & Wildlife officers in the park, and no park ranger had ever said a word to me about sleeping a table. 

[Actually, that was not the accurate date. I arrived in Key West in 2000, but it was 2002, I think, when I started using the park.]

I told the Hispanic F & W officer that sometimes the park rangers had enforced the rule about not bringing bicycles to picnic tables, but usually they did not, but I would move my bicycle to a bike rack near the parking lot, and I would put my rubber mat on the ground instead of on a table. 

The Hispanic F & W officer said okay. He said they are law enforcement officers. He meant, they can arrest people for any state crime. I said I knew that. I did not say I had once been given a traffic citation on US 1 by a Fish & Wildlife officer, for passing a slow on a yellow line on Lower Matecumbe Key, when I could see one mile ahead and nothing was coming the other way.

I asked if they were patrolling the park, or had they received a complaint? The Hispanic officer said they were patrolling, there had been no complaint. I thanked the two officers for being on the job and they thanked me and walked toward the beach, as I wondered if I should have asked the Hispanic officer if he was born in America, how his parents got here, were they legal residents?

I decided I'd had enough fun at the park and packed up and bicycled to the Martin Luther King Recreation Center in nearby Bahama Village, to swim and read beside the lovely swimming pool with a splendid view of the Atlantic Ocean. 
The rec center and the nearby state park are easily the nicest places for the public to enjoy in Key West. The rec center is free. There is a small fee to get into the park. I have an annual park pass, which a friend bought me recently. He likes for me to have a place to hang out, where law enforcement won't bother me.
A man o' war bird showed up over the swimming pool, and I wondered what spiritual malaise was headed my way? For whenever I see one of those fishing aviators, it means I'm going to be spiritually attacked or engaged in spiritual warfare.
One battle that then did happen yesterday regarding Kari Dangler is not yet far enough along for me to report with confidence. So that will be put on hold.

Meanwhile, my hoodoo spellcasting witch amiga emailed an amusement park ticket yesterday, which began with the cluster fuck tilt a whirl ride:

Historians of the future, huddled around their goose-fat lamps in muddy woolen cloaks, may cite this as the month that the Kardashian Dreamland formerly known as “The USA” finally lost its collective mind.
Submitted for your approval, as the late, great Rod Serling (senator from The Twilight Zone) used to say: this week’s Russia-Russia-Russia hearing on Capital Hill. I caught the final hour of this circus when freshman senator Kamala Harris (D – Cal) was hectoring Attorney General Jeff Sessions about his “contact with Russian Officials” and had to be reprimanded by the chair for her rude behavior.
Note: it’s now deemed illicit for US government officials to talk to Russian diplomats. I wonder what would happen if government officials in other lands decided that it was improper to talk with US diplomats. The Democratic Party seems to be building a case that the world would be better off without diplomats cluttering up each other’s capital cities. Hey hey, ho ho, Di-plo-macy has got to go! Now that’s a most progressive idea! Apparently, AG Sessions riled Senator Harris by pointing out that the Soviet Union collapsed nearly thirty years ago — a typical white privilege thing to say, right?
Next up was Senator Mark Warner (D – Va), Vice-Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, who grilled Sessions about Russia’s electronic warfare capability. Say what? First of all, wouldn’t Senator Warner find more enlightenment on the subject by calling the Secretary of Defense, or the top military brass, or the NSA Director to the witness table? Does he know where the duties of the US Attorney General begin and end?
Secondly, Is there anybody in this country with an IQ above room temperature who thinks that the USA is not similarly disposed to carry out electronic warfare? Or that all the advanced nations of the world are not toying with internet intrusions into each other’s cyber space? Perhaps this is a manifestation of the political neurosis called American Exceptionalism, the idea that we’re so unlike people in other lands that they might as well be space aliens. (A sweet idea for a new Twilight Zoneepisode.)
All this idiocy suggests that the Russia meme is losing its mojo and the forces dedicate to dump Trump might have to look elsewhere for some legal ground to stand on. For the moment, they’re veering into the darkling woods where obstruction of justice lives, a Blair Witch Project of politics, where any old assemblage of broken twigs is a sure sign of the lurking beast —  but perhaps that’s exactly where witch-hunting takes you.
Personally, I still believe they’ll run him over with the 25th Amendment, which allows for simple removal of a batshit incompetent executive without the pain-in-the-ass rigmarole of due process. You just get a consensus of the highest officials in the land to agree that guy has to go, and they get him gone, and, in this case, you get yourself Mike Pence, a tranny-like Church-Lady with a hard-on for the Koch Brothers. That’ll get the country great fast, I’m sure.
Then, of course, there was the gunning down of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others on a Virginia ballfield by a disgruntled Bernie Sanders fan, of all things. Is it hyperbole to say that this incident had the tone of a first shot in a new civil war? Even the hysterical elements over at CNN rushed to put out the very brushfires they had been kindling by broadcasting the Thursday night news against the backdrop of the annual congressional charity baseball gamed held at the Washington Nationals ballpark — as if the sore-beset people of this dissolute land might be stirred from their anomie by the comforting sound of wood on horsehide. Summer’s not quite officially here yet, but who feels like dancing in the streets? It’s more like wanting to hide behind the nearest trash can.

When the spellcaster told me yesterday that US House of Representatives' Speaker Paul Ryan is not a right wing Christian, but is an Ayn Rand disciple, I said I had knew nothing about that; I thought he was a right-wing Christian. No, Ayn Rand, the spellcaster said.
I chuckled, said I read Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED when I was in law school. Many years later, I looked back at it and it looked to me the atheist author was not an atheist, but she probably didn't realize it.

Her messiah in that novel is John Gault. But before Rand's heroine, Dagny Taggart, met Gault and was swooned, she had met Hank Reardon, a successful steel innovator capitalist the dysfunctional national government hated and tried to dismantle. When Rearden then met Gault, he told Dagny he understood why she went for Gault.

Rand had not been been able to connect with Jesus, so she invented her own messiah. Rearden was Rand's (Dagny's) John the Baptist. Both of whom were Jews.
I told the spellcaster I would read up on Paul Ryan. I did that this morning, online, then I emailed the spellcaster:
Paul Ryan is a right wing sucking up to the rich Catholic. Matthew Fox letter to Ryan, one of a number of online slams of Ryan for claiming to be Catholic but not behaving or espousing what Jesus had to say about money, the poor, needy, etc. Matthew Fox's and other pieces include, not kindly, Ayn Rand influence on Ryan.

Is Ryan a Religious Hypocrite? A Priestly Letter to Speaker Paul Ryan from Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox

Is Speaker of the House Paul Ryan a Religious Hypocrite?

From Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox
Dear Speaker and Congressman Paul Ryan,
As a priest who commemorates his 50th year in the priesthood this year (28 as a Roman Catholic and 22 as an Episcopalian), and as your elder, I am writing you this letter because I am worried about your soul.
We all know you take good care of your body, working out frequently in the congressional gym we taxpayers provide for those in Congress, and that is a good thing. But I am concerned that you are neglecting your soul. It too requires work-outs and practice to stay healthy.
You claim to be a good and a practicing Catholic Christian but I have serious doubts that you are. Our Christian beliefs include these words of Jesus after all: “What does it profit a person if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?” These powerful words are surely important for anyone serving in public office or any other places of responsibility, whether in government or business or church or wherever. Yes, they even apply to your close buddies the Koch brothers, upon whom you depend so fully for your income and ideas and campaigns and job.
You see, another passage that grounds Catholicism and Christianity is found in Matthew 25: “Do it to the least and you do it to me.” Not to mention the Golden Rule which is found in Matthew 7:12 and is reflected in some form in every world religion since the time of Hammurabi: “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”
Now I want to ask from a spiritual and theological perceptive how you can possibly reconcile these basic teachings of the Gospels with your continued efforts to create budgets for our entire nation that do the following:
  1. Threaten to privatize and thereby destroy Social Security for elders and disabled people.
  2. Destroy critical health support systems for the sick, handicapped, mentally disabled, and homeless by effectively scuttling Medicare and Medicaid.
  3. Dismantle the EPA so that the rest of God’s sacred creation is imperiled by human narcissism (Pope Francis’ words). Have you not read Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si that teaches everyone—believer and non-believer alike—that we humans are not here to destroy but to support creation for the good of all beings on earth now and in the future? If you have studied this great document—as you must as a thinking believer—where is it to be found in your legislative agenda?
Another Biblical teaching is the warning that we are not to worship idols. But Wall Street is a purveyor of the idolatry of money. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer in that system. Pope Francis has spoken to that truth also when he speaks of the “savage capitalism” and the “god of money” that dominates so much of decision-making in western culture.
Your naked efforts to give more and more tax breaks to billionaires like your supporters the Koch brothers is proof that you have up to now chosen to be on the side of the savage capitalists and the gods of money. Have you no shame? Have you no conscience? Do your faith and Jesus’ teachings mean nothing to you because you are mesmerized by power and the powerful? Do you not know—or do you simply not care—that when the uber-rich do not pay their fair share, the struggling poor and middle class must pay from their meager resources to subsidize the rich? And when the uber-rich get still more tax breaks, the poor and middle class are forced to make up the difference?
I am worried about your soul. It is not too late to repent and start over. It is time to examine your commitment to the values that drive your heroes the Koch brothers, who want to worship the idols of Wall Street instead of caring for God’s sacred creation, and who refuse to pay their fair share of taxes to contribute to the common good. And who buy the loyalty of politicians like you to commit sins against the poor and creation itself to make their fat wallets even fatter. Shame on you!
Yours are not the values I learned growing up in Wisconsin (indeed, my godmother lived in your hometown of Janesville) and growing up in the Catholic Church. How have you wandered so far off track? Was it the ridiculous narcissistic writings of atheist Ayn Rand that enticed you to surrender Gospel morality for Mammon? (Let me add that I admire many atheists for their ethics and morality but Ayn Rand is not one of them. Not by a long shot. She has rendered selfishness a virtue.)
I wish through this letter to awaken your soul. Your sweet Wisconsin smile and gym-toned body notwithstanding, through your choices you are dancing with Evil.
The gospels teach such truths. So too does Pope Francis who, as a Roman Catholic, you supposedly respect and listen to. Have you listened to his warnings and his teachings lately? Allow me to remind you of some of them.
The Pope minces no words when speaking of the divergence of wealth and poverty today. He speaks to globalization this way: “The globalization that makes everything uniform is essentially imperialist…it is not human. In the end it is a way to enslave the nations.”[i] Is globalization enslaving the nations? It seems to me that much of Trump’s success as a candidate was built around this very idea—only his solutions seem to me to be dark indeed. What is your agenda, Mr. Speaker, about this “inhuman” globalization that is hurting so many citizens of our country and beyond?
Pope Francis says: “Christianity condemns both Communism and wild capitalism with the same vigor”[ii] and one needs to reject the “wild economic liberalism we see today” and “seek equal opportunities and rights and strive for social benefits, dignified retirement, vacation time, rest, and freedom of unions.” [iii] Are you on board with this set of values? Or are you in the camp of “savage capitalism?” Why do you want to destroy the dignified retirement of American people by diminishing Social Security instead of building it up? And to destroy social benefits for the very poor and working classes while giving tax gifts to the super rich and corporations? And to eliminate a current health insurance program that provides assistance for many millions of people instead of improving it?
The Pope praises St. Francis because “he contributed an entire concept of poverty to Christianity against the wealth, pride, and vanity of the civil and ecclesiastical powers of the time” and for this reason “he changed history.”[iv] Are you putting obstacles in the way of the wealth and vanity of the powerful in our day? Given your responsible position as Speaker of the House, why don’t you try to change history for the poor and neglected instead of for the 1% who are already over their heads in favoritism and success and (too much) power?
The Pope takes on the neocon preoccupation with “world terrorism” and the fear such language arouses when he declares that “human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that create huge inequalities.”[v] How important is that? He equates economic structures with terrorism. Yes, he is telling us that Wall Street terrorizes. Ask any Main Street citizen: we all feel the effects of this terror and that is why many in Main Street voted for Trump, out of fear of this terror from Wall Street. But your buddies the Koch brothers are those very terrorists the Pope is speaking of. Yes, how does it feel to be in bed with terrorists? And of course, Trump has turned his back on his promises to the working people and has appointed an unprecedented number of billionaires (terrorists) to head his cabinet positions.
The Pope also denounces the “flight of money to foreign countries” as a sin because it dishonors “the people that worked to generate” that wealth. [vi] He also condemns those who hide their wealth in off-shore accounts to avoid paying taxes that are so important for the common good. What are you doing to challenge those hiding their wealth in off-shore accounts to avoid taxes? Aren’t you in a powerful position to do something about that?
Pope Francis has said: “The option for the poor comes from the first centuries of Christianity. It is the Gospel itself.” And he has remarked that were he to preach sermons from the first fathers of the Church on the needs of the poor, he would be called a “Maoist or Trotskyite.”[vii] Are you leading legislation that puts an option for the poor in the forefront?
He says: “Human rights are violated by…unfair economic structures that create huge inequalities.”[viii] Are you on the side of human rights and against economic structures that create huge inequalities? Or are you on board to actually increase those inequalities by passing legislation that gives tax breaks to the 1% who in fact need them the least? Pope Francis warns that “The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any human goal.”[ix] Where do you and your fat-cat donors stand on the subject of the “cult of money”?
We need, Pope Francis says, a “balanced social order that is more humane”[x] and that resists consumerism. Pope Francis says further that “Money has to serve and not rule.”[xi] It is a “savage capitalism” that teaches “the logic of profit at any cost” and exploitation of people.[xii] Where do you stand on the topic of “savage capitalism” and the cult of money? In your very responsible position as Speaker of the House what are you doing to address these important issues—issues that touch all the people in America, especially the downtrodden and left out? If you had addressed them before the 2016 election, maybe the strongman Trump would not have been able to tap into the frustration of as many blue-collar Americans as he did.
Finally, as a Catholic, where do you stand on the notion that corporations are people (see Citizens United and Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decisions)? Are you in bed with the neo-fascist Catholic members of the Supreme Court who, contrary to Catholic teachings, are telling us to believe that a corporation is a person? How could you possibly reconcile that with the teachings of the Church on the immortality of the individual soul and more? While we are on the subject of neo-fascist Catholics, where do you stand on Opus Dei?
Unfettered capitalism is, according to Pope Francis, a “new tyranny.” [xiii] Where do you stand on this new tyranny? What limits are you setting on unfettered capitalism by your legislative leadership? Are you keeping Dodd/Frank laws on the books? Says the Pope: “Today we are living in an unjust international system in which ‘King Money’ is at the center.” This “throwaway culture discards young people as well as its older people…..A whole generation of young people does not have the dignity that is brought by work.” A “diminishing of the joy of life” is the result of such idolatry. [xiv]
In his document entitled “The Joy of the Gospel” Pope Francis speaks bluntly as all the prophets do. He says No—as all the prophets do. He denounces “trickle-down” economics as “never having been confirmed by the facts” and being built on a “crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power….Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”[xv] Where do you stand on trickle-down economics? Have you learned from its blatant failures? Are you aware how many Main Street citizens are “still waiting” for good wages and jobs to reach them?
Following are some of Pope Francis’ No’s presented in his own words:
  1. 1. No to an economy of exclusion….An economy of exclusion and inequality kills….Today everything comes under the laws of competition and the survival of the fittest, where the powerful feed upon the powerless. As a consequence, masses of people find themselves excluded and marginalized: without work, without possibilities, without any means of escape.[xvi]
  1. 2. No to the new idolatry of money….While the earnings of a minority are growing exponentially, so too is the gap separating the majority from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few…..Self-serving tax evasion has taken on worldwide dimensions. The thirst for power and possessions knows no limits….Whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interests of a defied market, which becomes the only rule.[xvii]
  1. 3. No to a financial system which rules rather than serves. Ethics is seen as counterproductive, too human, because it makes money and power relative. It is felt to be a threat, since it condemns the manipulation and debasement of the person….Money must serve, not rule! The Pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike, but he is obliged in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor. I exhort you to generous solidarity and a return of economics and finance to an ethical approach which favors human beings.[xviii]
  1. 4. No to the inequality which spawns violence. [Violence happens not] simply because inequality provokes a violent reaction from those excluded from the system, but because the socioeconomic system is unjust at its root. Just as goodness tends to spread, the toleration of evil, which is injustice, tends to expand its baneful influence and quietly to undermine any political and social system, no matter how solid it may appear…..Evil crystallized in unjust social structures…cannot be the basis of hope for a better future.[xix]
And “NO” to the despoiling of Mother Earth about whose peril Pope Francis has written an entire encyclical. Clearly you have turned your back on the sacredness of the Earth as well: you support for the head of EPA a man who has shouted that he wants to destroy it, while you make ridiculous mumbles about climate change that you are not a scientist. Well, sir, isn’t that all the more reason to listen to scientists who do tell us that humans are bringing about climate change and the destruction of many, many species as well as the rising of the oceans? How can one be a Christian and not recognize the sacredness of creation?
Where do you stand, Speaker Ryan, on these issues that the Pope raises? How are you using your position of power and responsibility to alleviate the ills he addresses? Isn’t what the Pope says true, that the violence the current system provokes is one reason why many victims of this system voted for Trump—and even admire his violence? Pope Francis speaks out against an “education that would tranquilize the poor, making them tame and harmless.” [xx] And he defines injustice as “evil.”
I pray that you may be converted and return to the teachings of Christ and the Church striving to teach in his name very soon. Time is running out for our species and you are in a position of trust and responsibility and leadership in our country at this time. Earn it!
Meanwhile, until you and your party pay attention at last to these basic issues, I as a Christian priest and theologian can only conclude that you are not at all a Catholic or a Christian but just one more hypocrite flaunting your bogus religion on your sleeve to garner more votes and stay in a cushy job while you sell your soul to the Koch brothers and other Wall Street misers. People who don’t have a clue about the “weightier matters of the Law—justice, compassion, good faith!” (Mt. 23:23) that Jesus preached, and who could not care less.
Jesus had something to say about that too, remember? It was strong stuff. He was speaking to you, Paul Ryan, and your fellow politicians when he said: “Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You who are like whitewashed tombs that look handsome on the outside, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of corruption. In the same way you appear to people from the outside like good honest men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness….You are the sons of those who murdered the prophets.” (Mt 23.27-28, 31).
I hope and pray that you and your fellow politicians, Mr. Ryan, so beholden to the rich and uber-rich, might heed Jesus’ words. And if not, at least do him the courtesy of not invoking his name to justify your lawlessness.
Sincerely in Christ’s name,
Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox
The spellcaster also emailed yesterday something I figure is also dear to Paul Ryan, Matthew Fox and Pope Francis' hearts:
Subject: a bit more proof the world is going crazy

I understand  there are individuals who identify as male trapped in female form, and individuals who identify as female trapped in male form, and can wrap my mind around the idea that IF these folks find this distressful enough, given current medical technology, adults in such situations should be allowed to undergo sex change.  I'm not as certain that taxpayers should be forced to pay the tab for these expensive surgeries.  


After all, I identify as a woman 25 years younger than my biological age, yet face lifts and tummy tucks tend not to be covered by insurance.  Thus, I am trapped in a body that appears older than the age I identify with.  Poor me.  Sigh.  

What really grabs my attention, and baffles me a bit,  is that some children are identifying as the opposite sex now at younger and younger ages.  WHY is this happening?  Is there something in our air, food, water, causing biological issues?  What if a child of 4, 6, 8, or 10 undergoes sex change only to discover later that they were wrong, and want to be put back the way they were?

As a child, I was generally more drawn to "boys" toys than to "girls" toys.   I recall the kindergarten teacher REPEATEDLY dragging me away from the toy microscopes,  or train sets... back over to the dolls, high chairs, little kitchen set up, and toy vacuum cleaner.  That woman really pissed me off!  But it was a thing very different from identifying as a male.

Should children be allowed to undergo sex change surgery and treatments? OR should parents and medical professionals hold off on this until the child has at least reached puberty?

And further, what of these surgeries and hormone treatments with regard to potential health risks down the road  20 or 30 years... the result of ongoing hormone treatments?  Will there be health consequences? 

It's such a complicated issue.  I found this article interesting..... and note that Carlos Castenada's "Art of Dreaming" is mentioned within.   Third mention of one or more of his works this week.  Perhaps I should give some attention to that.


[That is a big topic in Key West, which is considered a LBGT haven.]

I called the spellcaster to see if she'd had a dream about this and that is why she had sent it to me? 

No, just wanted to hear my take on it.

I said my take would piss off some people.

Okay, but what is your take?

No government funding for sex-change operations.

The spellcaster said she agreed with that.

I said, most people with crossed-sex wiring were not born that way, but became that way due to damage to the internal feminine. They adapted. Some people are born with crossed sexual wiring, but most are not. 

That's a harsh view of the feminine, she said.

No, it's a harsh view of the masculine and what it has done to the feminine, I said.

The masculine also is damaged, she said.

True, but that is the result of the damaged feminine, I said.

Donald Trump is a good example of someone with a non-operating feminine. People with an operating feminine would not have voted for him. Nor for Hillary Clinton, who is a man in a woman's garb, I said.

I'm an example of someone with both the feminine and the masculine functioning, I said.

I did not say:

The angels made me that way. Before that, I was pretty much like Trump.

Christianity is pretty much like Trump. It's godhead is all male. It has no clue the Holy Spirit is the female side of God.

Paul Ryan is a child of that godhead and has little to no operating feminine. Same for Vice-President Mike Pence. Same for most of Christendom, which, like Paul Ryan, Mike Pence and Ayn Rand, recreated Jesus in its own image.
Ayn Rand was born a Russian Jew. You can read at Wikipedia how she developed into an atheist.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_Rand

Given how women are treated on this planet, I can't fault Rand for wanting to be an atheist.
Maybe Pope Francis will be moved by the Holy Spirit to do something about his religion having a God the Father, God the Son, and God the Uncle godhead.

So much for Eve being created in God's image.
I told the spellcaster yesterday, I could help Trump, the CIA, Congress, the Pope, for pay, but who would pay to be told the truth? 

Imagine my ad in a newspaper: 

"The truth for money"

Ha, ha

Back when Gordon "Buz" Dillon was Key West's police chief, he and I got together for lunch from time to time, I was homeless, so he paid for it, and we talked about God and what God wanted us to be doing, instead of that the city government wanted us to be doing. 

Buz did not like being ordered by the city officials to use his police to lean on homeless people sleeping outside and people living in their vehicles. He felt his police should be protecting the public from criminals.
