Is humanity ready to fall on its own sword to save itself and the planet?

When my older daughter and her husband had their first child, they asked me what I wanted my grandchildren to call me? I paused, said, "Grandfossil."

I sometimes tell people the Smithsonian put a tracker on one of my hind legs and let me out to roam a bit, and I gnawed off that foot and the tracker and grew another foot and have been roaming ever since. Maybe that's a song.

Meanwhile, comment under the recent Do American right love and trust guns more than God?

I continue to query statements that seem rooted in supremacy. I am searching for someone who can... or will explain in a reasonable way with Facts how I am misguided. They squirm and try to escape, but the inescapable end point is supremacy- although they won't say the words. I continue to come to the conclusion that equality has to be brought to this country- and people like Michelle are not going to help, they will do all they can to hinder.

It looks to me that what is called humanity is a collection of subspecies, in the perspective/belief sense, which have developed side by side and except for common genes are about as related as dogs and cats. How that resolves, or if it resolves, seems to me to be beyond the subspecies' ability. Had conversation along those lines yesterday with a Democrat friend living in "Paradise", the Florida Keys. Might use your and my and his and my musings in today's blog post. This is April 29, 2021.

Florida Keys Democrat's reply to yesterday's How would the American right feel about issuing an assault rifle and a driver's license to every 16-year-old?

Hi Sloan,
It is simple. Guns are made to kill whether it is a human or an animal. If there were no humans then there would be no gun killings. 
The only solution is Divine Intervention.
And we pray !!!

My post today was a bit satirical, given I see no solution than God kills humanity๐Ÿ˜Ž

God won't kill humanity ! Humans will kill humanity. 
We are killing ourselves ! We are killing too many wild animals, we are killing Nature. 
No way out unless there is Divine intervention.
Big Hugs !!!!

That's what I meat by God killing all of humanity - Divine Intervention. That would fix a lot of things, but would not be humanity's vote.

Ain't over til it's over !!

Maybe people need to be careful what they ask for from God, maybe they don't think about how God might respond? At the rate things are going, humanity will kill the planet pretty quick relative to how long the planet has been a jewel in the heavens. Maybe that don't sit well with God. Maybe that don't sit well with spacefaring beings. Maybe they watch humanity and think humanity don't seem willing or capable of getting its act together. So ...

You are correct 

Is humanity ready to fall on its own sword? Am I? Nope.

How would the American right feel about issuing an assault rifle and a driver's license to every 16-year-old?

Recent Facebook post below drew responses from conservative white former Alabama prosecutor Robert and white Alabama native John, whom I met when we both spent nights in Key West's homeless shelter. The damsel above is decked out for Key West's Fantasy Fest (Halloween).

Sloan Bashinsky
In the Gospels, Jesus said to take no thought for tomorrow, nor even for your own life, for God might take your soul tonight. And to resist not one who does evil, and to turn the other cheek and do good to and pray for your enemies. Peter and Paul were executed by Rome, a disciple was stoned to death. They did not draw a sword or dagger to defend themselves.

Do American right love and trust guns more than God?
Do American right love and trust guns more than God?
anomalous (unusual, quirky, strange, weird, etc.) musing and reporting on diverse human and non-human affairs

To me a firearm is a symbol of independence. They were used to establish this Country. The people who led the Revolution, were almost all Christians . They mention in the Declaration of Independence, a Creator. God, and Providence.
I believe Blacks should buy guns to protect themselves from other Blacks since statics show, 90% of violent crimes against Blacks are committed by other Blacks. ( Harvard Kennedy School)

Sloan Bashinsky
How about blacks have guns also to protect themselves from certain cops and white supremacists? All of which begs the question of how do Christian Americans, black or white, square owing assault rifles with Jesus, Peter, Paul and Mary? I'm fine with all Americans having flintlock muzzleloaders, if they wish, to be in sync with the early American white settlers. Beyond that, it's kinda looking to me today like the wild west, except the guns have evolved far more that the gun toters.

A gun is like any tool. The person using the tool is the problem, if something bad happens, not the tool. Banning guns is like castrating yourself, because your neighbor has too many kids or taking cars away from good drivers, because their are bad drivers, who misuse their cars.
It is people who are the problem, not the firearm.

Sloan Bashinsky
So you are ok, then, with blacks, browns, yellows, reds and liberal whites all having assault rifles and Glocks, to reach gun parity with conservative whites in America? Not parity, but superiority, as they outnumber conservative whites, based on presidential elections for quite a while.
I love gun rights people comparing cars to guns. Both are designed to kill, right?

Honestly the best option is to issue every US citizen the same handgun at 16 with a drivers license and level the playing field. Gun laws are pointless now that Pandora's box is already open. Guns are out there and no one is going to change that. We tried banning alcohol and drugs and got nowhere but debt, death and more crime.

Sloan Bashinsky
Heh, I know some people a lot older than16, on the left and the right sides of the aisle, whom I think should never be allowed to have a hand gun, or any gun, but your suggestion sure would level the playing field. I wonder how the right side of the aisle would feel about every 16-year-old white liberal and every 16-year-old black, brown, yellow and red having a hand gun? I wonder how American law enforcement would feel about that? Well, how could gun lovers protest after all these years of comparing selling guns to issuing driver's licenses?


I'm sure it would get some dislikes. All I was saying is that it would level the playing field. You have to think twice before car jacking, robbing and attacking someone when you know they are also armed. As far as assault rifles are concerned. they are already out there so banning them only creates a criminal enterprise and black market. I doubt too many people are sitting in their underwear, in their mothers basement, covered in peanut butter saying "I wish I could get an assault rifle and kill a bunch of people but I cant find one now that they are banned. Guess I'll just sit here and cut myself". More likely they will just use a bomb or drive a truck into a crowd. You certainly aren't going to ban trucks or fertilizers. You can ban crazy.

Sloan Bashinsky
You can ban crazy? ARE YOU CRAZY?๐Ÿ˜Ž

I think you nailed it, almost. Instead of a hand gun, issue an assault rifle to every 16-year-old. That should cause the right side of the aisle to sleep well at night๐Ÿ˜Ž

Well you can't walk into a school and shoot up the place if everyone else has an assault rifle too. Or conversely, we can just stop giving these people any airtime in the news.

Sloan Bashinsky

Good luck the news not covering the shooter getting riddled full of holes by school kids toting assault rifles.

Will it ever be safe enough for President Biden and the left to reopen America?

I posted this below on Facebook yesterday, wondering if it would get me put in Facebook's jail? Not yet.

Sloan Bashinsky

I am no Trump fan, but he promoted a fast, cheap cure for Covid-19 and you rejected it, the Democrats rejected it, the mainstream media rejected it, Fauci, Brix, FDA, CDC, AMA, WHO, Big Pharma, Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. rejected it. Trump got vaccines made and much of the right rejected the vaccines. The awful effect of the pandemic is on all of the aforesaid, not on Trump.

the American left, their media and Big Pharma defeated the cheap, fast Covid-19 cure President Trump announced in March 2020, and today America is SNAFU and perhaps FUBAR


He did an interview on Hannity yesterday and for the first time EVER I developed a tiny bit of respect for the man. He admitted to taking the vaccine and encouraged his supporters to do the same.

Hard to believe it but the far right anti-vax population is now displaying a level of ignorance that even Trump does not understand.

Sloan Bashinsky

I think Trump understands them very well, and that is why he was able to play them so easily, and why he was so slow admitting he took the vaccine and they should, too - he didn't want to alienate them, because he knows, without them, he has no leverage in Republicandom. I can imagine he was under heavy pressure from the old Republicans to promote vaccines, lest they all be blamed for what Covid-19 might do to America, including another shutdown.


Yep. Probably true. They’ve been begging him to do a commercial encouraging the vaccine. He won’t do it. I guess going on Fox News to say it is better than nothing.

Sloan Bashinsky

That's a good place for him to say it, because it's a Republican "oracle" 

Sloan Bashinsky

Meanwhile, I had the 2 Pfizer shots in January and February, have vaccination card signed by medical workers to prove it, have photo of it in my i-Phone. Have yet to be asked for proof that I was vaccinated. Have yet to be asked if I was vaccinated. Doctors' offices ask me if I have any Covid symptoms? Have I been recently exposed to someone with Covid? I can only get into doctors' offices wearing a face mask. I tell the doctors and their staff I had both Pfizer shots. They don't seem interested. 

I can only get into any public place wearing a face mask. Most of each day I'm holed up in my apartment. My social outings are walks on sidewalks, siting on sidewalk benches, going to the grocery store, drug store, restaurants, doctor and lawyer offices, talking on phone and Facebook, playing duplicate bridge and chess online, watching TV news, golf, mixed martial arts and other shows. In other words, getting vaccinated changed nothing in my life other than I hope I won't ever catch Covid-19.

Who knows how long the Pfizer vaccine will remain effective? Will it protect me from Covid-19 mutations? In the face of all of that, will it ever be safe enough for President Biden to say it's safe enough for America to reopen? For blue state governors to say it's safe enough for America to reopen? Wars always have entailed killed and wounded, but it looks to me that President Biden and the blues do not, can not, tolerate any casualties.

Dr. Zelenko's cheap early stage infection protocol (zinc, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin), which I explained in plain English in the blog post to which you responded, would have allowed America to safely reopen in April 2020. President Trump wanted America to have that cure, so America could safely reopen. The left, its media and the medical-industrial complex went haywire. Trump caved. Here we are.

Monday, April 26, 2021

the American left, their media and Big Pharma defeated the cheap, fast Covid-19 cure President Trump announced in March 2020, and today America is SNAFU and perhaps FUBAR

Retired nurse Peggy, whom I got to know when I lived I lived in Key West, posted on Facebook someone else's seemingly endless indictment of Donald Trump during his presidency. Here's how it went for me from there

Sloan Bashinsky
I ran out of steam about 1/3 down the indictment. I am no Trump fan, but he promoted a fast, cheap cure (Dr. Zelenko) for Covid-19 and you rejected it, the Democrats rejected it, the mainstream media rejected it, Fauci, Brix, FDA, CDC, AMA, WHO, Big Pharma, Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. rejected it. Trump got vaccines made and much of the right rejected the vaccines. The awful effect of the pandemic is on all of the aforesaid, not on Trump.

Sorry, but 571 thousand people died from Covid. Trump was our Commander in Chief and had no desire to end the pandemic. Because of him calling it the Chinese virus he was the cause of Asian people being attacked. He said Covid would just miraculously disappear. He knew the danger and lied to his citizens for his own greed and bigotry and brainwashed many people into following a corrupt agenda for this country. He turned Christianity into a corrupt cult of followers. Trump was our leader and he is the cause. 
Much of the right refuse to take the vaccine now. Trump tried to produce the vaccine in a way he would profit financially. Biden has got things going along very quickly with the vaccines. Biden got us vaccinated not Trump!!

Sloan Bashinsky
Sorry, but Peggy knows I really didn't like Trump, but he did pass along the cure and the witch hunts began and here we are, and that ain't on Trump, it's on America.

You had better do more research sir. Trump wanted to make money on the vaccine, it backfired on him! He could not not get things going in a year?? He was telling us it was a hoax!

Sloan Bashinsky
Repeat, Trump passed the cure along in March after he and his chief of staff received Dr. Zelenko's letter I will add below. Hannity interviewed Zelenko, who had battlefield tested the early stage cure in his very large family practice in a tight knit hasidic community in New York state. The left and its media went haywire. 
I had numerous conversations with Peggy, and she did not concede one inch, said hydroxychloroquine killed people, even though she knew people had taken hydroxychloroquine for years for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and had not died. I had many conversations like that with Democrats and moderates. Even Republicans were hard to win over. 
Trump had nothing to do with that. He kept talking about the cure. I fault him only for not using his clout to make his FDA director make the cure freely available. That has nothing to do with vaccines, which, amazingly, the right resist, and here you are blaming Trump. 
Here's what I think will happen now. The virus is mutating like all get out. The resistance to the vaccine will give the virus what it needs to become even stronger and more varied and more problematic. Look at India today. Look at what's happening in red states in America. Won't surprise me if Biden orders a national lockdown that flat wrecks the American economy and society, and there is a lot more mental and emotional distress and civil unrest.
Zelenko's March 23 letter: 
Sloan Bashinsky
I could be put in Facebook jail for posting that letter here. I was as put in FB jail several times already publishing the letter and even mentioning Zelenko's name on FB. His cure still would save America, if it was freely available.

I had a friend die from hydroxychloroquine as well. And why would anyone believe anything on Hannity and the right wing lying programs.
Sorry but this proves nothing who is he!
he was a on Hannity. How can he be trusted!! Sorry Sloan, but you sound very right wing to me!

Sloan Bashinsky
You are at the end of a long line of people who dismissed Zelenko out of hand because he was on Hannity. Did you read his letter? He did not write to Hannity. But Hannity interviewed him, while even Joe Biden dissed him. 
The cure is 5 days of hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin. 5 days. It works in the early stages, many doctors used it were blasted if they let it be known they were using it. By people like you, Peggy, Joe Biden. Oh, but it was so cheap. There was no money to be made by research, trials, government funding, sales. 
People are being killed by the vaccines, but they are still being used. Nobody knows the long term effect of the vaccines. I had 2 Phizer shots. Willingly. I would have gladly taken Zelenko's cure if I had contracted the virus. It kept his patients out of hospitals. Read that again. It kept his patients out of hospitals. Nurses like Peggy never would have seen his patients. 
People in cults, which you are, cannot see beyond the cult. Same for MAGAs, Republicans. flat-earth thinking. 
Watch Dr. Zelenko's homemade video where he explains it and plenty more.
Dr Zelenko discusses COVID-19 pandemic and solutions to end it.

Yes I read it . He sounds like Trump. As I said my friend died from the hydroychloriquine. And others have as well!
Why are victims and dying people diminishing except in the states where people Won’t take the vaccine and won’t wear masks? Why are there not thousands of people sick and dying from the vaccines if they are bad!
Do you have proof that the vaccines are not helping?
If Trump took the cocktail when he got Covid and it worked why did he not use his executive power to get it out to everyone?

Sloan Bashinsky
I am interested in hearing how your friend was killed by hydroxychloroquine. That was the medical examiner's determination, a physician's determination? It is possible hydroxychloroquine killed your friend, penicillin killed people who were intolerant to it. Peanut butter killed people who are intolerant to it. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine caused a few people to have dangerous blood clots and was suspended, then cleared despite the blood clots.
Tens of millions of people took hydroxychloroquine ongoing for malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, prescribed by physicians, Overseas, in malaria areas, hydroxychloroquine is over the counter available. It was given to American troops during the Vietnam war to prevent them catching malaria.
Trump took Zelenko's cocktail preventatively for a while after some of this staff tested positive. Some months later, Trump tested positive and was hospitalized, BECAUSE he did not take Zelenko's cocktail when he tested positive. He had caught so much flack, he was running for reelection, his doctors gave him other meds by then known to be effective. I doubt you or I could have afforded those drugs.
You think Zelenko sounds like Trump? You need a new pair of ears. Watch his video. His 5-day early stage infection cure is simple. It was already known that hydroxychloroquine transported zinc into body cells, and that coronaviruses had trouble replicating in zinc environment, and that just taking zinc, without a transporter, was not effective. It also was known that loss of taste and smell is a symptom of zinc deficiency.
I read several so-called studies slamming hydroxychloroquine as ineffective against Covid-19. The so-called studies did not use zinc with hydroxychloroquine. The so-called studies were RIGGED. I tried several times to explain that to Peggy, who is a Registered Nurse, and it was like talking to a stone. She kept saying studies said hydroxychloroquine had killed some people.
How many people did Covid-19 kill in America? How many more people did it really mess up for the rest of their lives? How many of Dr. Zelenko's patients went down that M*A*S*H re-run? None. How many of the Frontline Doctors' patients went down that Mj*A*S*H re-run? None I know of.
I am a blogger. I started slamming Trump in 2017 and never let up, which Peggy well knows. I slammed Hillary, too. I thought they both should be locked up, in adjoining cells, and said so many times at my blog.
The vaccines are providing immunity, for now. But look at the carnage that could have been avoided before the vaccines arrived? And look at the resistance to the vaccines, and it's not just Republicans and MAGAs.
If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say Republicans and MAGAs resisting vaccination have figured out a way to acquire hydroxychloroquine, which some doctors are prescribing off label, along with zinc and azithromycin, to prevent secondary infection. The Zelenko cocktail. Or, they have a friendly veterinarian who gave them sufficient invermectin, which is known to cure Covid-19.
Imagine that is true. Imagine Republicans and MAGAs silently laughing at Democrats, hoping they will catch Covid-19 and die or be permanently damaged by it. Especially, black democrats, as many blacks fear any vaccine because of the Tuskegee trials.
I am a white Alabama native, age 78. I got up close and personal acquainted with George Wallace whites. I deal with Republicans and MAGAs ongoing. And with Democrats. Where I live and on Facebook. Here's a link to yesterday's blog post, where I deal with a gun lover for the 2nd day running.
"Do American-right love and trust their guns more than God?"

Sloan Bashinsky
Trump's God assignment was to get Zelenko's cure to all Americans. Trump blew that assignment, because he wanted more than anything to re-elected.
For years, I voted for 3rd-party presidential candidates, because I didn't like Republican or Democrat nominees. I voted for Joe Biden, reluctantly, because he did not cause me to fear for the safety of my children and their families, and he at least talked about saving the planet from human beings.
Biden has no clue how the vaccines will fare in the long run against Covid-19 and its mutations. Nobody has a clue. By this time next year, there could be a mutation resistant to the current vaccines. But Zelenko's cheap, fast, simple, mechanical cure will work, if started as soon as symptoms appear.
Zelenko said quercetin also transports zinc into body cells and can be substituted for hydroxychloroquine. Quercetin is easy to buy online, Walmart carries a quercetin-zinc combination. I have taken quercetin, zinc, C and D-3 daily since last May. I still take them, even though I had both Phizer shots.
I wear a mask anytime I go into inside a public place: grocery, pharmacy, business, restaurant, doctor office, etc. Have worn masks since February 2020.
I love spending 23 hours a day in my apartment, staring at walls, my laptop, smart phone, TV. Watching America go what looks like batshit crazy to me.

Jonathan Long
Why are there more Covid spread in in many Republican states. If they know about about the cocktail why is it not more widely used even without CDC approval?
I grew up Christian and the the church has shown so much greed and bigotry throughout history I can not believe in it as I did. There is no proof of most of the miracles in the book and the laws were written in another time and society. I believe there is a power in the universe call it “God” whatever it is a title for something unknown. How guns were used in the past does not compare to now. No one should own an assault weapon period. Why is it the USA has such a high crime rate for a democratic country?
Thank you for voting for Biden. He is at least taking us out of a less corruptive and dangerous government that Trump was forcing on us. Even though I believe it’s not over because of too many brainwashed and uneducated Americans

Sloan Bashinsky
Do you still contend I am a right-winger? 
I get accused ongoing by right-wingers of being a commie Democrat. I show them blog posts where I take on Democrats. It is true red states are showing increase in Covid-19 infections. Just recently, a Facebook friend told me about south Alabama cattle farmers getting invermectin from their livestock vets to have on hand if they catch Covid-19. I for sure had trouble selling Alabama urban Republicans on Zelenko's cocktail. 
Each state has its own medical and pharmacy boards, which determine what meds can be prescribed for what. Hydroxychloroquine only can be prescribed off label, because it does not have FDA approval for Covid-19.

Jonathan Long
As far as I am concerned there is no proof that any vaccine or cocktail will help against future variants and it’s time length of effectiveness. It’s too soon

Sloan Bashinsky
Correct, re vaccines. Zelenko proved his cocktail works if taken as soon as symptoms appear, do not wait to test for positive or negative and give the virus any more time to replicate. Lot's of doctors learned of Zelenko's cure and used it with their patients. But the Democrats and their media and Facebook led that charge in league with Big Pharma, and Trump caved. That's what happened, and here America is. Attack Trump all you like. I certainly did plenty of that. But he did tell America about Zelenko's cure, the Front Line doctors told America about the cure, it was working for their patients. And here we are. SNAFU and perhaps FUBAR.

Do American right love and trust guns more than God?

Cheeky reply to yesterday's Should all American blacks arm themselves with assault rifles? What would Jesus say?

Good point. I’m sure no one would condone blacks arming themselves against perceived threats. Only the “good guys” can do that right?
Obviously I’m being sarcastic but I’ve heard that exact statement come out of the mouths of the entitled who have determined themselves to be the “good guys” despite having no authority to do so.

Sloan Bashinsky

Then was Bible scholar guns for everyone Michelle, who starred in yesterday's post, at the end of which I asked her this below and it went from there with a little help from straight-shooter Jennifer:

Sloan Bashinsky
I'm all ears, waiting to read accounts of your personal direct experiences with Jesus and his angel buddies.

That's between me and them, and not your business at all.

Sloan Bashinsky
Meanwhile, should all American blacks arm themselves with assault rifles? What would Jesus say?

refer to my first quote from Luke.
Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals,(A) did you lack anything?”
“Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’[a]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”38 The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”

Sloan Bashinsky
I take that as you saying, yes, all American blacks should arm themselves with assault weapons. I’m still eager to hear if your personal direct experiences with Jesus and his angel buddies.

An armed society is a polite society and your words smack of racism, which I find to be truly disgusting. Also. Why would I share with a racist stranger whom I do not respect my spiritual experiences? Are not your own between you and your god? Mine are. One does not cast pearls before swine and all that. Also in your Bible. As well as the emerald tablets of Thoth written thousands of years before your Jesus said them.

Sloan Bashinsky
FYI, I have told in thousands of pages, books, emails, Facebook, blogs, my direct, personal experiences with Jesus and his angel buddies, and also with the Devil and demons, and even with ETs. I meet people from time to time, who seem to have their own version of such experiences. They talked very differently from you, were forthcoming, saw things very differently from 99.9 percent of the rest of the people. So far, you don't seem anything like them. I think if you lived in my skin for a day, you would see things very different from how you see things now. 
​I read the Emerald Tablets in 1985, and Heinlein (loved Stranger in a Strange Land), and lots of things Christians might never read, nor even hear of. I was born into a Christian family, was raised Christian, was not very good at it, but always believed God existed and Jesus was the way, but not followed all that well by many people, including me. Then, something happened and I was treated to something I wish would happen to everyone, but perhaps too few people would survive it for the species to continue. It moved me beyond believing God existed. I knew God existed, and Jesus, angels, the Devil, demons, ETs. Religion seems mostly for believers. The direct experiences is altogether different

Michelle, Gotta disagree with that last one. Do you consider us an armed society? We are certainly not a polite one. So, do you advocate more guns until we treat each other politely? So the politeness will depend on who has the larger, or more guns? And what if there is a disagreement about whose gun is larger? A fight with the said guns. And then whoever survives wins and can then move on to challenge others with guns smaller or less numerous.

I certainly do. I believe every american should own a gun and know how to use it. In high school, our rifles were on a gun rack in the cab of the truck. Not because we were violent, but because we hunt. We respected human life. As do most people. I don't have all the answers on how to fix society, but I do think it's important that we are armed for no other reason that history shows that governments spark genocide in unarmed populations. Ask the cambodians or jews about it.

So same question about the "armed society is a polite society" How does that exactly work. I guess its supposed to work like nuclear weapons- if we both have them then no one will use them. Nice theory until someone like North Korea or Hitlers Germany comes along. Who is the arbiter, or is it just whose gun is largest, and what happens when they don't agree.

Lol, no. In the old west for example, it was necessary for everyone to carry for various reasons. For the most part, people didn't just go around killing people for no reason. It was a polite society. Also, a gun is a great equalizer for a female who is being harassed by opposite sex as well, don't you think?

As far as I have seen those western shows, lots of people did carry guns- and lot of people were shot. and killed. and the guy with the biggest gun won. And then everyone did it the way he said. That does not seem so polite. So since you have not answered my question about your quotation, "An armed society is a polite society" can I assume you have no response? Its down to who has the biggest gun who wins. In your scenario of carrying the gun with you, if a guy with a gun challenged you, did you shoot him? How many have you killed, personally.

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
The quote is from Robert Heinlein, in his book Beyond the Horizon. If you don't have the capacity to understand the underlying tenet, then I can't help you.

I guess you don't have the capacity to explain- because apparently you can't. Any road you start down ends up with people dead, so just start calling names. It is the defense of the indefensible

I explained well enough for a child to understand. But you're right. One cannot teach quantum mechanics to a two year old who simply has not the capacity to grasp it. Have a nice day. And remember.. namaste.

Nice. Throw insults because you have nothing. You explained nothing, because there is no good way for that story to end. When you come up with something better than that, let me know.

I can't argue with idiots. It's not an insult. Unless you are being deliberately obtuse, which is a dishonest debate tactic, you really don't have the capacity to understand it. If the former, I have nothing left to say. If the latter, again I have nothing left to say

You have explained nothing. I asked how it would work. You have called me an idiot. That is Not an acceptable answer to my query. I must then presume you have no answer. Show me I am wrong and give me a reasonable chain of events. You can keep calling me names, but it just points up how weak your argument is , and how indefensible your position is. Hurting you, not me.
Repeating the quote and quoting the source- Also not viable arguments.

Sloan Bashinsky
Jennifer, I think Michelle has memorized the Bible but does not seem guided by the Holy Spirit that entered the disciples at Pentecost and slowly germinated the seeds Jesus had planted in them and grew them from confused sometimes quarrelsome, egotistical, fearful children into adults God could use. I also think Michelle trusts and even worships guns more than God, and I think she would not care for all American blacks to be armed with assault rifles, nor would Jesus care for that, nor for assault weapons generally. In the Gospels, Jesus said to take no thought for tomorrow, nor even for your own life, for God might take your soul tonight. And to resist not one who does evil, and to turn the other cheek and do good to and pray for your enemies. He also said, many are called but few are chosen, steep is he way and narrow the gate and few enter therein, and the work is great and the laborers are few. Peter and Paul were executed by Rome, a disciple was stoned to death. They did not draw a sword or dagger to defend themselves.

Sloan Bashinsky
In the Hebrew cosmology, the feminine side of God is called Shekinah, feminine gender. In the Old Testament, Wisdom is assigned the feminine gender. The Holy Spirit is Shekinah, but Christendom has made its Trinity all male, which leads to the question, how does such a deity reproduce? In the main, Christendom and humanity operate out of the masculine. That underlies much of the problems in humanity, stuck in testosterone, so to speak. The Devil, which is very real, loves humanity mostly stuck in testosterone. I believe a gun is a phallic symbol. This poem fell out of me in the spring of 1993, as I recall;

Rosa Mystica
Sweet Mystery
Bride of Christ
Living Water
without which
God is dead
and there are no

Should all American blacks arm themselves with assault rifles? What would Jesus say?

Yesterday, I watched TV news reports of several North Carolina sheriff deputies tried to serve drug related search and arrest warrants on a black man, he drove away in his car, and they opened fire and a bullet hit him in the back and killed him. The North Carolina sheriff said state law did not allow him to release the body cams without a judge's permission. The North Carolina governor called for a quick release of the body cams. The deputies were put on administrative leave.

I wonder right now if every black in America should arm themselves with guns like the one in this meme that got into my Facebook feed this morning and led to some discussion with a self-proclaimed Bible scholar.

Jesus was an anarchist. And yeah, he'd have a gun. Have you not read your Bible?

He got nailed up onto the cross that He dragged through the streets, willingly. Why would he have needed a gun?

There were plenty of weapons around then yet Jesus didn't use any, what makes you think he would have used a gun if it were available? That just does t make sense.

Except, he Roamed, the Earth, About 2,000 Years, Prior, to the Invention of the "GUN"!...

Michelle, I think you should read the Gospels.

I'm a bible scholar. Come at me, and allow me to savage you with your own religion. I'm waiting

Sloan Bashinsky
Okay, where in the Gospels did Jesus carry a weapon other than his words and actions?


In Luke. 

Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals,(A) did you lack anything?”
“Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’[a]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”38 The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”

Sloan Bashinsky
I am familiar with that passage, which does not answer my question: When did Jesus in the Gospels have a weapon other than his words and actions?

He personally did not. Does God need a weapon? What a stupid dishonest question to ask. The point is when it was time for him to be crucified, he urged his followers to take up arms. To be innocent as doves, yet sly like snakes. Do you have an actual debate point to bring up or nah?

Sloan Bashinsky
Jesus was not God, but he was in sync with God: the Father and I are one, he said. The Christian Trinity calls him the Son and God the Father.

Deflecting again. Ok.
And according to John, jesus was god. In the beginning was the Word,(A) and the Word was with God,(
 and the Word was God.(C) 2 He was with God in the beginning.(D) 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.(E) 4 In him was life,(F) and that life was the light(G) of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness,(H) and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.(I)

Sloan Bashinsky
According to Jesus in the Gospels, he prayed to God, he referred to his father in Heaven, he told people to pray to his father in Heaven (Lord's Prayer). You are doing the deflecting, because you know Jesus's weapons were his words and actions.

Not at all. The fact of the matter is, the initial verse from Luke I provided was filled with allegorical keys to enlightenment that is written in such a way to hide it from the profane. It has nothing to do with actual weapons at all. You have no idea what's really going on in your Bible. And no, I'm not deflecting. But once again, you are. The subject is whether jesus would have approved the carrying of weapons. According to your bible, he did indeed. Next.

Sloan Bashinsky
Why don't you look at the meme again, the question is, would Jesus carry such a gun as that? Not would you, me, or anyone else?
And, a 2nd question, would Jesus be a Republican? My answer was he would not be a Democrat, either.

Point taken, if one wants to view things in such a literal sense. Indeed, I should not have taken the bait of a post so ignorant it defies logic. To be fair, I was just waking up when I responded. Let's not forget your lord CHOSE crucifixion and therefore had no interest in weapons personally. But in the spirit of the meme, which was meant to politicize God in the first place, yes. Jesus encouraged his followers to arm themselves. Clear enough for you?
Jesus was an anarchist. He answered only to god. Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and all that. Unlike me, he refused to take the bait when it was presented.

Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. 16 They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians.(L) “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are. 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax[a](M) to Caesar or not?”
18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, 20 and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”
21 “Caesar’s,” they replied.
Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s,(N) and to God what is God’s.”
22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.(O)

Sloan Bashinsky
That's right. I hope he pays you a visit and tells you how he feels about the gun in the meme, and lots of other things you think you have all figured out.

LMAO. Jesus is quite alright with me. I just call him Hermes.

Sloan Bashinsky
I do hope he pays you a visit. I can tell you for a fact that he, and some of his buddies, such as Archangel Michael and Melchizedek, turned me every which a way but loose, and inside out, and changed the way I think and see pretty near everything.

How do you know he hasn't? You assume too much

Sloan Bashinsky
I'm all ears, waiting to read accounts of your personal direct experiences with Jesus and his angel buddies. 
Meanwhile, should all American blacks arm themselves with assault rifles? What would Jesus say?

Doc Justice rips "Paradise" law enforcement again in Key West's bizarre treehouse murder thriller

For a change of pace on the soul of law enforcement,  below is the latest in a string of columns about a bizarre criminal prosecution in "Paradise", aka Florida Keys, particularly, Key West area. I do not know author Doc Justice's true identity, but I hope he has a really good cloaking device and lots of Kevlar. I think this case was first broken by Key West the Newspaper (

The Treehouse murder story and litigation just went sideways big time!
I have been following this case for some time now. Ever since the amazing Lauren Jenai, co-founder of cross-fit, reached out to me.
Her and Tyrone Tucker were childhood friends and sweethearts with life driving them separate ways, but as the Universe sometimes does for people meant to be together, they were reconnected.
This is such an awesome Knight in Shining Armor saves damsel in distress story, but in total reverse.
Lauren is a force of nature, which I discovered the first time we spoke. Most people who have tried her exercise program would think just being able to do that would make you a force of nature, but Lauren doesn't even begin to stop there.
We have published about their story several times and so have multiple major media organizations.
Lauren has spent countless hours unraveling a sick and twisted game of corruption, going from the bottom to the top, diving in like a superhero and putting her resources on the line to save an innocent man, she now calls her husband.
But I digress.
This story is really about an innocent man, who almost got railroaded. And by all accounts had Lauren not swooped in as the angel she is, I believe he would have.
A story that makes me cry seeing the completeness of the machine that grinds up souls, and imagining what happens to those without a Lauren.
We had been working on a big story with Tyrone, then the Monroe County State Attorney's Office did the unconscionable and had both Tyrone and Lauren gagged.
How can they even gag Lauren. And how can they in good faith whine about media exposure when they talked to the media and falsely called this man a murderer, while being in possession of exculpatory evidence?
Talk about some serious lack of honesty, integrity, and ethics, not to mention the glaring prior restraint issues on the First Amendment rights of private citizens.
And how did the courts allow this?
But we dropped what we were working on because the life and freedom of an innocent man is more important than ratings or self advancement.
Hello Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward and Sherriff Rick Ramsey, did you hear that?
Should I say it louder for those in the back?
Do either of you gentlemen, in supposed critical leadership roles, know what your subordinates are doing under your watch?
Ramsey no need to respond, we already know the type of unhonorable man you are. And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so they say.
But Mr. Ward, surely you are of higher moral character than to allow this to happen under your supervision. If you knew, I am appalled at your lack of proper action, if you were not aware you are now, and your constituents would expect you to fix this properly and not sweep the crimes committed under the rug.
This literally could be a T.V. series, making of a Murderer - Next Victim of the State, in a rare case where the sequel would blow the doors off the original.
From my read this has RICO all over it. Collusion between the State Attorney and the Sheriff's Office. Perjury by deputies, witness and/or counsel intimidation/tampering, evidence tampering and destruction, obstruction of justice.........
So far After 700 or so days, of being wrongly incarcerated, Tyrone is free and living with Lauren after they got married.
One cop, Captain Penny Phelps has been fired; one Assistant State Attorney had her law license suspended for a year, and was forced to resign; and one cop got demoted to no longer being a cop, and kicked to dispatch. And that is only where this seems to be starting.
But the state still has not dropped its frivolous charges against Tyrone.
Today the defense filed a bunch of exhibits, including the deposition(s) of the lead Detective, Matthew Pitcher.
I have downloaded all the exhibits filed in case the state wants to gag someone let them try to gag me.
If I have time, I will analyze and write more.
But If you really want to see how dirty some cops are, how they work with corrupt state attorney's, and the work it takes to expose it all, I suggest you read the depo transcripts.
It is long, like 341 pages long.
But I can not take my eyes away from it.
I think my eyes are bleeding reading this, some things you can't unsee/unread, and I may have to bleach my corneas.
Man court transcripts can be the best thrillers sometimes.
So without further ado.
If you decide to read through these transcripts, trust me it just gets better and better, or should I say goes from horrible, to despicable, to worse.
Doc Justice

Whoever you are, Doc Justice, I hope you have a really good cloaking device and lots of Kevlar, I think Key West the Newspaper first broke this Stephen King'ish case?

     I have something they fear even more.......
    Cameras everywhere.

     Did you bury land mines around your property's perimeter. Do you keep fierce guard dogs for protection? Do you have a drone armed with hellfire missiles orbiting above your domain?? Has your FB been hacked and dismantled yet, like what happened to (Coconut Telegraph) after its owner created sheriff candidate Sandy Downs' campaign website, where Sandy told some rocky horror movie stuff on the Sheriff Department?
    The gag order, I suppose the judge wants the prosecution for have a fair trial?
    My recollection is, before he became a lawyer, the state attorney was a detective at the Miami Beach Police Department. Perhaps I missed it, but I never saw him prosecute a LEO. I got to know him pretty well. Helped him get elected the first time, 2008.
    I told Tyrone that I thought his best potential law enforcement recourse is with US Attorney in Miami. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement in Tallahassee did not impress me in the murder in police custody Charles Eimers case, broken by the blue paper. Nor did the then state attorney impress me.
    Once upon a time, I practiced law, emphasis on practiced.
