Some #FridayFiction/#100WordChallenge Thoughts

For some time now, I have been writing a short-story 100-Word Challenge every Friday and have been enjoying myself a lot. You can expect more in the future, I guarantee!

I really want to do NaNoWriMo this year. So when I first heard of this from Moe Lane, I thought this would be a great use of my time to exercise my muse (which will no longer be given a free pass) and to get ready for NaNoWriMo. If want to also take part in NaNoWriMo, look me up over there. I am excited! I hope you are excited too!

I do want to thank several people: Jimmie (who, through Moe, turned me onto this), Darleen (who is providing great images for the challenge), and Tania Gail (for her kind words and feedback).

Well, see ya’ later!

#FridayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Phanuel”

Pastor Daniel stopped dead in his tracks. It was the morning of July Fourth on the wet beach between New Smyrna and Ponce Inlet and he thought at first what he saw was a unique fireworks display, but then it moved toward him.

‘Dear Lord in Heaven!’ thought Pastor Daniel. The sparks moved in a circular fashion, like wheels within wheels. He could see how the points of light could be like eyes. ‘A Throne! A Wheel! A-’

“I AM THE OPHANIM ARCHANGEL, PHANUEL! KNEAL BEFORE ME, DANIEL ANTHONY MERRICK, FOR I BRING A MESSAGE FROM THE BEGINNING… OF THE END!”

I guess I have been on an Angel kick for a couple of weeks now. It doesn’t help that Darleen posted an image that looks a lot like an Ophanim. Enjoy!

#FLSen: The @AlanGrayson Ride Is Coming To An End

The Alan Grayson train may soon be coming to an end:

Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.) is finding himself in hot water over managing hedge funds that bear his name, actions that are in possible violation of House ethics rules.

Sitting members of Congress are prohibited from using their name in titles of entities for personal financial gain, Politico reports. Rep. Grayson has three hedge funds with his name attached to their title.

Shame. It was fun while it lasted. I really wish he could have made it to the General Election. It would have been much more fun than covering the former Republican Patrick Murphy.

Well, see ya’ later!

Now #CivilUnions Are Fashionable

You can’t throw a stone at a right-leaning conservative website right now without someone posting: “Hey, Let’s Have Civil Unions For All!”

Fuck you! I was calling for Civil Unions back when I was still posting at RedState. I was ridiculed at the time (comments were removed when RedState went with Disqus) and dismissed. Who is dismissing who now, assholes?

I am sure there were other people calling for Civil Unions for all and to protect religious liberty, you guys are good in my book. The people who are just now waking up to the possibility after Obergefell, you can stuff it were your mother won’t even go. Here’s what I said back then that everyone ignored and is now scrambling to put out there:

Let me be brutally honest with you. Since Henry VIII got his hands on marriage, it hasn’t been the same. We all know the story. Henry didn’t get a son from his first wife and so he wanted a divorce. Rome at the time didn’t think that was a good enough reason and so did not oblige the King of England. So Henry threw a fit and cut off relations with Rome. He then set up the Church of England and made himself head of a religion, thus why we have separation of church and state here in America. However we made the same mistake of making what should be a religious institution, a state institution.

Henry VIII’s legacy is damning. Today, marriage has more to do with politicians and lawyers than your local clergy. Marriage has become a joke and vows are ignored. It’s bottom of the barrel nonsense and you know it. The state has taken something good and twisted it into something rotten. …

Again, I want to put out the idea of Civil Unions for everyone. If Marriage is religious institution, let’s give marriage back to church/temple/mosque and let them (have legal protection to) marry anyone they want. Let politicians and lawyers deal with Civil Unions and leave marriage a sacred religious institution. I want to make it clear that I don’t think people should stay married if they don’t love each other. I am saying that a priest is more willing to save a marriage than the government, because it is way to easy to get a divorce through the state. They don’t care if you stayed married, because lawyers make too much money on divorce and many politicians are lawyers. Give everyone Civil Unions and let’s be done with it.

If the gay community is still up in arms after getting the equal rights they have wanted, then they are just in it to annoy the religious right and we can call them on it.

But, whatever, Civil Unions are not going to happen now. These Liberal Fascists are not going to want to give up their advantage to wage war on Christianity and religion in general. Every church/temple/mosque will be forced to marry gay people or lose their tax-exempt status, you mark my words.

Update: It has begun. In fact, Mark Oppenheimer doesn’t hide the fact he wants the State to replace the Church:

Defenders of tax exemptions and deductions argues that if we got rid of them charitable giving would drop. It surely would, although how much, we can’t say. But of course government revenue would go up, and that money could be used to, say, house the homeless and feed the hungry. We’d have fewer church soup kitchens – but countries that truly care about poverty don’t rely on churches to run soup kitchens.

Whatever. We’re doomed.

Well, see ya’ later!

#FridayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Last Letter Ever”

The Archangel Michael landed beside Marcus’ still form, undiscovered by the mortal humans outside the hospital room for now. A shoe-box sat beside all the ‘Get Well’ cards and balloons. The shoe-box had old letters from Cynthia to Marcus and Marcus to Cynthia.

One last letter from Marcus to Cynthia, just written, laid on top. After being moved by Marcus’ last letter ever, Michael folded the latter into his left hand and sent it to Cynthia in the Beginning with a puff of smoke.

“She will know what you wrote,” said Michael. “And she will know of your love forever.”

Wow! Both Darleen’s image and Tania’s image were so interesting, I was inspired to use both today! This is also part two of my short story from last week. Enjoy!

Breaking: #ReligionOfPeace, In Your Face Peaceful

I’m sure he was just a little upset that he wasn’t offered a tour:

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says multiple people are in custody after an attack on a gas factory that left one person dead.

A severed head was posted at the factory’s entrance and Cazeneuve said authorities are still trying to identify the victim.

“People who could have participated in this abject crime are in custody after having been arrested,” he told journalists.

The attack began when a car crashed the gate and plowed into gas canisters, touching off an explosion at the factory near Lyon on Friday morning.

Cazeneuve said the suspect was believed to be from the area and had been flagged in 2006 for ties to Islamic extremists, but surveillance was dropped in 2008.

I’m sure even Muslims want a vacation:

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has confirmed that one of the two beachside hotels where tourists were shot in Tunisia, killing at least 27 people, is owned by a Spanish company.

And of course, Muslim interfaith cooperation at an all time high:

A suicide bomber blew himself up at a packed Shi’ite Muslim mosque in Kuwait city during Friday prayers, killing more than ten people, the governor of Kuwait City said.

The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on social media and said it targeted a “temple of the rejectionists” – a term it usually uses to refer to Shi’ite Muslims, whom it regards as heretics.

I am sure thankful that Islam is the religion of peace, or we’d be in real trouble. Amirite?

Well, see ya’ later!

The Swamp #33

The Madness Abounding

The Swamp #33

Only me and Tex today. First we talk about the Southern Cross and how it is a battle flag, not a symbol of racism. Then we turn our talk toward the awful King v Burwell ruling. Then we head over to Europe to talk about Abortion Drone thing that is happening. But before you listen, check out my Patreon Page!

We have cross the brink of the Rubicon into willful insanity people. There’s no turning back now. Actual logic has no place in this world right now. Buckle-up buttercup, because no one will be spared.

#AbortionDrone Is Now A Thing

I am disgusted beyond words. I can’t link to any article about this story, because they all disgustingly approve of this utter nonsense.

Basically, Poland is a pro-life nation. It has abortion only in the case of rape/incest or the when the life of the mother is threaten. That seems fair to me. However Feminists and SJWs are not happy about this, because anything less than unlimited genocide of the next generation is consider wrong for some reason. So a pro-abortion group “Women On Waves” says “fuck Poland’s natural sovereignty” and is sending, from Germany, outlawed drugs into Poland using drones. I am sure Germany wouldn’t like people in Poland breaking German laws. So much for the rule-of-law in Europe.

The #SouthernCross Is Also A Warning

I am going to be brutally honest. While I did grow up in Florida, my Dad grew up in Indiana. So I didn’t fully get the southern obsession over the Southern Cross until I got older. David French sums it up best:

It is telling that the South’s chosen, enduring symbol of the Confederacy wasn’t the flag of the Confederate States of America – the slave state itself – but the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, Robert E. Lee’s army. Lee was the reluctant Confederate, the brilliant commander, the man who called slavery a “moral and political evil,” and the architect – by his example – of much of the reconciliation between North and South. His virtue grew in the retelling – and modern historians still argue about his true character – but the symbolism was clear. If the South was to rebuild, it would rebuild under Lee’s banner.

Since that time, the battle flag has grown to mean many things, including evil things. Flying it as a symbol of white racial supremacy is undeniably vile, and any official use of the flag for that purpose should end, immediately. Flying it over monuments to Confederate war dead is simply history. States should no more remove a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial than they should chisel away the words on the granite or bulldoze the memorials themselves.

Right. I could not disagree with David French at all. Click through and read the whole thing.

However I would like to add, the Southern Cross can also be used as a warning to a painful reminder of our history. The flag should not be use as a call for rebellion or racism, but a warning that slavery and a costly war to settle our differences should never happen again. So we can’t expunge the Southern Cross, to do so would be to deny the ugly history of the Civil War. We must learn from both the good and bad times in history. Philosopher George Santayana said: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

I personally prefer the Gadsden Flag instead, since it is more of an expression of want for independence from a far off and uncaring government. It is not a Yankee or Southern flag, thus anyone can unite under it’s meaning of freedom. But I digress.

Only close-minded ban or burn stuff (unless we are retiring a flag). I am sad that people are resorting to name calling, just because some people accept the Southern Cross as part of our history. It is a legitimate link to our shared past. To deny the Southern Cross would doom us to repeat the mistakes that lead to its use in the first place.

Well, see ya’ later!
