Existing in New York City: As the Religious Wars Continue

Say Goodbye to: The Sugar Boy, James "Sugar Boy" Crawford:
My old friend Robert Frances Guida turned me on to Sugar Boy Crawford back in the 80s and I put several of his songs in my repertoire, like "Watch Her," "Sing Out for Joy," and "I Bowed on My Knees." James "Sugar Boy" Crawford, 77, American rhythm and blues singer. Here's an old recording of Sugar Boy doing "I Bowed on My Knees":
Say Goodbye to: Pedro E. Guerrero (September 5, 1917 – September 13, 2012) was an American photographer.

Where in the World Is Hillary Clinton?
Believe it or not, according to the Washington Post, Hillary is in the District of Corruption:

“The U.S. government had absolutely nothing to do with this video,” Clinton said at a meeting in Washington with a delegation from Morocco. “We absolutely reject its content and messages. But there is no justification — none at all — for responding to this video with violence.”

Say Goodbye to: Homer Joy --and watch the hit song he wrote, "The Streets of Bakersfield" by Dwight Yoakum and Buck Owens:

H.L. Mencken wrote:

"The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it."

People say we need religion when what they really mean is we need police."

"The curse of man, and cause of nearly all of his woes, is his stupendous capacity for believing the incredible."

"The truth is that Christian theology, like every other theology, is not only opposed to the scientific spirit; it is also opposed to all other attempts at rational thinking. Not by accident does Genesis 3 make the father of knowledge a serpent -- slimy, sneaking and abominable. Since the earliest days the church, as an organization, has thrown itself violently against every effort to liberate the body and mind of man. It has been, at all times and everywhere, the habitual and incorrigible defender of bad governments, bad laws, bad social theories, bad institutions. It was, for centuries, an apologist for slavery, as it was the apologist for the divine right of kings."

Jehovah vs. Allah
I'm just now reading about the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya and the Embassy in Egypt over an anti-Islamic film put up on YouTube by a California Israeli (now rumors are denying he's an Israeli; it appears even his name is phony) fanatic and a pissed-off Copt dude that ridicules Mohamed and Allah. In Libya, Islamic fanatics stormed the U.S. Consulate in Bengahzi and killed our ambassador to Libya. In Egypt, Islamic fanatics climbed over the wall of our Embassy in Cairo and brought down the U.S. flag and put up an Islamic flag in its place.

Our God vs. their God, proving without a doubt that all of this bullshit waring going on is religious waring...our stupid War on Terrorism is actually a war on Islam (secularly a War for Islamic Oil). Stupid, stupid, stupid. To die in defense of fictional characters! With Israel and its God-given right to Jerusalem desiring to start World War III over Iran's building nuclear capabilities when Israel has nuclear capability second only to the USA.

Hillbilly Hillary, wherever she was, stuck her nose in the matter deploring, of course, the pissed-off Islamics in Libya and Egypt saying stupidly even though she was against attacks on the beliefs of people, she condemned a violent response to such attacks. This our Secretary of State who represents a country that has violently responded to attacks on its beliefs by raining down eleven years of terror and death on Afghanistan whose people had nothing to do with 9/11 and nine years of terror and death on Iraq whose people had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. Hypocrite Hillary has no diplomatic skills whatsoever that I can see as she wings her way around the world on a constant basis rather than staying in Washington, District of Corruption, and doing her job from there.

All of these fools ready to die for their fictional gods! Amazing! How dumb and backward are you if you put your faith not in yourself but in some man-made god? Yes, primitive people needed gods to explain the mysteries surrounding their jungle lives like lightning striking one of their grass shacks and setting it on fire. Holy shit, what the hell was that! And the shaman and the priest had the answer: "The wrath of God against our sinful tribe! We must sacrifice a couple of virgins to calm our God down."

Hey, it's easy as hell to ridicule Mohamed and Allah same as it is Jesus X. Christ and Jehovah. I mean these are fictional characters. They're not real, folks; yet look at the human lives that are sacrificed to these fictional deities year in and year out.

I have two very dear friends both of whom truly believe in this Jewish god we call Jehovah. I mean they govern their lives on believing in this Big Daddy in the Sky somewhere outside our vast Universe. Yet both of these persons are smart as whips in secular things like their careers, but when it comes to psychological problems and physical problems, they lose their reasoning and fall to their knees begging their Big Daddy to save them, to redeem them, to restore them to sanity and immunity.

And now the very stupidest of our stupid, including Mitt "the Mormon" Romney and that Flordia Black idiot, Allan West, are blaming President Barack "the Kenyan-born Muslim" Obama for especially the Libyan assault that killed our Ambassador. Hillary and the FBI are spouting their mouths off saying this Libyan assault was planned. One source I saw even said this assault was planned long before this weird-ass anti-Mohamed video was amateurishly produced and put up on YouTube.

Who the hell knows started this. All I know is, it started with a video made in the USA, this great Christian nation under God (a phrase put in our Pledge of Allegiance during Ike Eisenhower's administration and not like the Christians would lead you to believe put in there by our Christian forefathers (Thomas Paine was an Atheist; Thomas Jefferson was a Deist; Benjamin Franklin was a profligate)). Our God is bigger than your God, which means our God has the U.S. military and security forces behind him (the Big Daddy gods are always male). Calling Jesus X. Christ the Prince of Peace is like giving President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize. Like our Strategic Air Command planes having on their sides the motto "Peace Is Our Profession."

And now, Israel's Benjamin Nut'nYahoo is over here campaigning against Obama because he won't back Israel in its attempt to start World War III by nuking Iran, that evil Islamic nation whose Islamic militants once stormed the U.S. Embassy there and held the staff there hostage until Ronnie "Raygun" Reagan made a deal with them to help him get elected after stupid-ass Jimmy Carter, the peanut farmer and rocket scientist, fucked up a rescue mission.

"The Streets of Bakersfield" is a great song -- "You don't know me but you don't like me" is an unforgettable line.
