“During a rally in Indiana this week, Donald Trump made a comment about extending his presidency beyond the Constitutionally-allowed two terms. This is the second time Trump has publicly said that he may stay in office longer than 8 years, suggesting that he isn’t really joking about the matter. And although he’s trashing the Constitution, the crowd of MAGA fools just cheered and cheered. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Judge Jeanine: Trump Fulfilling End Times Prophecy!…

Date: May 15, 2018

01) Judge Jeanine: Trump Fulfilling End Times Prophecy!

“Judge Jeanine Pirro opened up her Fox News show on Saturday with a bizarre riff claiming President Donald Trump was fulfilling a Biblical prophecy by moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

Speaking from Jerusalem, at one point Pirro claimed that the embassy move sent “a huge signal to Iran, and Shiite Muslims, that we stood with the more moderate Sunnis.”

She then said Israel is the basis of America’s Judeo-Christian nation before saying this:

“Donald Trump recognized history, he like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled the Biblical prophecy of the God worshipped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people finally deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.”

Pirro is currently in Israel to attend the opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem, which she claimed is a move that shows Trump’s strength and great worth.


Japanese Street Food – $600 GIANT RAINBOW LOBSTER Sashimi Japan Seafood…

01) Japanese Street Food – $600 GIANT RAINBOW LOBSTER Sashimi Japan Seafood

Warning: The lobster is going to die…and it will be graphic.

…And now, we get to my envy of people who live by the ocean…

That is one beautiful lobster…not just aesthetically…but my mouth is watering, just thinking about eating him/her.

They need to actually cook that lobster, though.

…I’ve never been a huge fan of raw seafood.

Where I live, we have to settle for these tiny, puny things…that get caught and shipped here…with a couple small meat strips, from the tail…You’ll pay ten, eleven dollars for just one…

In these parts…lobster is very much a luxury meat.

This is not one of the oceanside states…where lobster is plentiful, fresh and cheap…

…nor where, if you have access and capability, you can go diving for a free meal…

The prospect of being eaten by a big shark, aside…I’ve always wanted to be able to do that…because I’ve been a strong swimmer, most of my life…and I can dive in relatively shallow waters, without much trouble…

…It would be lovely…to be able to step “out back” on the beach…stroll into the sea…and swim around, picking up clams, lobsters and crabs…and I hear seaweed is pretty decent, too…

…Put em all in a pot, under a fire pit on the beach…boil em…Maybe throw in some potatoes and other vegies…some spices for flavor…

…My goodness…I’ve always wanted to live off the land [and sea], just like that.

Date: May 15, 2018

01) Richard Carrier – The Importance of Philosophical Thinking

“This lecture took place on April 2017 at the Birmingham Temple, Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Honing our philosophical skills is important. We need them for building a coherent, evidence-based worldview to guide and center us, and that we can allow to change as we learn or realize new things. What skills do we need? How can we develop them? What should we do with them? Dr. Carrier outlines the basics with entertaining examples.

Richard Carrier, Ph.D., is an historian, atheist activist, author, public speaker, and blogger, and the author of “Sense and Goodness without God.” Dr. Carrier’s presentation is made possible by the generous co-sponsorship of Michigan Atheists and the Humanists of Southeast Michigan.

Boys (2016)…


Date: May 15, 2018

01) Boys (2016)

“BOYS is a story about two best friends on the first day of summer. Set in 1999, Brian sleeps over at Jake’s house as they have done countless times before. This night, however, the two encounter new sides of themselves. Overwhelmed by the discovery, Brian decides to walk back home as he is facing a whole new path in his life. It is a story about desire, adolescence, and the realization of being different.”

Well…I never did the grinding thing with another boy…

…But I’ve definitely had a “moment of pause” with a boy…where both of us were noticing the situation, simultaneously…

…Why we never vocalized the moment, or revisited it later…I’ll never know.


…damned homophobia!…

If you’ve never experienced such a delicious moment with a boy…you have my deepest condolences…for you have truly missed out.
