An Alabama childhood friend, who calls himself a moderate Republican and voted for Hillary Clinton and Doug Jones, forwarded this yesterday, which I looked up online and learned that while different people have attributed authorship, it appears to be anonymous:
From one unstable person to another ... I hope everyone is happy in your head. We're all doing pretty well.
Tonight, Alabama plays Georgia for all the college football marbles.
My skinhead admirer Mike Tolbert emailed yesterday:
Gotta go making Tide Voodoo dolls with the Haitians blame tomorrow on me too.
Found this online yesterday:
Against #1 Clemson last Monday night, #4 Alabama proved it deserved to be in the BSC playoffs. How long since before that game did Clemson only score 6 points? 14 of Alabama's 24 points were generated by Alabama's defense.
Georgia has a potent offense and, except against Auburn the first time and against Oklahoma last week, a good defense. Will Alabama's crippled defense rise up once again? Will Alabama's sputtering offense play like it is able? That looks to me what this game is about, if you don't factor in the supernatural.
If Alabama beats Georgia, a lot of people in Alabama are going to view it as a miracle granted because Alabama elected Doug Jones instead of Roy Moore; and nearly as many people in Alabama will still believe the Devil caused Jones to beat Moore.
If Georgia beats Alabama, then I imagine Roy Moore and his legions, and Donald Trump, will give credit for that to God, not having a clue Haitian voodoo was used against the Crimson Tide.
But then, I'm sitting here looking at the Haitian voodoo priestess doll given to me by my brother's daughter, Sloan, this past fall. I don't imagine a Haitian voodoo priestess ever in history has cared for Roy Moore or his ilk.
May the best team win.
However it goes,
the SEC has bragging rights for a while,
Alabama and Georgia recruiting benefits,
and the SEC makes a heap more money than it would have if Clemson and Oklahoma were playing tonight.
Yesterday, an Alabama fan put onto Facebook that she'd had a dream about being in her car driving somewhere with Roy Moore, and Moore and she were moving toward having sex and she was trying to get him to wait until they got to where they were going, because there were other people in the car.
The dreamer revealed later in the Facebook discussion, which perhaps was the dreamer and the other people in her car with Moore, that some years prior Moore had hit on her for real, not in a dream. The dreamer had campaigned hard for Doug Jones.
Below are my late entry comments into that extensive discussion:
Sloan Bashinsky Whatever the dream was, it was important and I hope you get to the bottom of its meaning for you. Ask God for another dream to explain it, or to just give you the meaning in an ah ha way.
Sloan Bashinsky If it's any help, I frequently have sex dreams about women, usually I know them, some were my wifes or girlfriends, others just friends, or someone I knew, or knew of. I came to understand such dreams were messages to me (usually) about something those women represented relevant to me, or something then going on in my life.
Sloan Bashinsky Something I was not taking care of, or was going about poorly, or did not know about yet and that was the alert it was coming in. All of my dreams now are messages to me about me, things i'm engaging when I'm so-called awake, or will engage, in some way.
Sloan Bashinsky In dreams, people's cars tend to represent the dreamer's ego vehicle and/or how the dreamer is getting on in life. Have you in the past had experiences with a man, or men, who put his hands on you, so to speak, without your permission? Did that happen to you when you were young? Lots of women, and men, had that happen when they were young, and sometimes they don't remember it. It was blocked from their memory to protect them them.
Sloan Bashinsky Even so, the trauma is there, causing trouble subconsciously, and it tries to speak, and dreams are a way it speaks. There are other ways. For it has to speak. Some ways it speaks are illness: physical, mental, emotional. Behavior. Attitudes. Beliefs.
Sloan Bashinsky I can't but wonder if Roy Moore was molested in his youth. Something messed him up when he was young.
Sloan Bashinsky Fanatics, Moore for example, are driven by inner trauma. Instead of turning inward, they do external crusades (jihads) instead.
Sloan Bashinsky From the Gospel of Thomas:
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
Sloan Bashinsky I'm better than you sounds like Roy Moore and Donald Trump.
Sloan Bashinsky I think Roy Moore and Donald Trump are hilarious, they are so flawed that they seem to think they are perfect; gosh do I wish I could wander in that place where they are. Her dream might have some humor in it, but I think it is the kind of dream that could be life changing, if it is mined for what it represents, which probably would set stuff into motion and proceed in steps, a process unfolding.
Sloan Bashinsky I hear you, I also far prefer humor, but I don't get that she felt the dream was funny.
Sloan Bashinsky Perhaps the dream was for her and for a lot more people. Perhaps besides the meaning of her dream, which was generated out of her soul or by an angel of the Lord, the dream is message to people who joined into this discussion, that their dreams are important and they might wish to approach them in that way. The wild Australian aborigines viewed what they called dreamtime as the real time, and what modern people called waking time, as a distortion of the real time. Carl Jung, and in a somewhat different way, Sigmund Freud, viewed their patients' dreams as hugely significant. Jung viewed his own dreams as hugely significant. If medicine of that day had gone with both Freud and Jung, instead of just with Freud, then psychiatry and medicine today would be light years ahead of where they now are. My dreams fill in a lot of what I do not see or even think of when I'm so-called awake. It's been that way for 30 years.
Sloan Bashinsky She put this up because it was bugging her, she put it up because she wanted help with it, I'm not having a blast, this is very serious.
Sloan Bashinsky It might be a bit more amusing if the dream was a signal that if Roy Moore runs for Alabama governor or against Doug Jones after his term expires, Moore wins.
Sloan Bashinsky The dream was not humorous to her. That's where you start with a dream. You do not bend a dream to make you feel good. At least, not if you know anything about dreams.
Sloan Bashinsky Who knows, maybe she and Roy are gonna get married. That would be serious comedy. But I don't think that's what the dream is about.
Shortly after I posted my last comment, the Facebook thread was taken down.
Perhaps I should have taken the hint in her dream and written to her in private chat. But then, the dreamer and quite a few other people were well along in the discussion before I saw the thread in my timeline and chimed in.
Some years prior, the dreamer and I'd had a private online discussion about her not having a boyfriend. I was not attracted to her, she was maybe half my age and nearly 1,000 miles away, and we did not seem to have much in common other than we both were from Alabama.
She published on her Facebook that I had said she needed to have sex. That was part of it. The rest of it was why she did not have a boyfriend?
I could say the same about me.
Since early 2005, I had sex with a local biker chick, once, at her instigation, maybe 2011, and she wrote into the Coconut Telegraph public forum, bigpinekey.com, about it, and that started the Sloan haters going rabid-squared. Maybe it was the part where she said Sloan's angels had healed her after she had sex with me, that got to the Sloan haters, or maybe it was the part when she said, unlike the boys around Big Pine Key, Sloan was man who knew how to make love with a woman. Then, I spent a few nights with Kari in Key West motels in 2015. Otherwise, the only sex I've had since early 2005 was with my hand and in my dreams.
I was stood in front of the mirror countless times, for long periods of time. It still happens. Stood there by supernatural beings. If that happened to humanity, what a different world this would be. There is no way to begin to imagine it, until it is done to you.
Meanwhile, from another Facebook thread ...
