Stink Hand and Star Wars

When I was a young boy, I overheard my mother telling a story about me as a very small child. She was telling one of her friends of a day not long after I was potty trained... Apparently, ( I say that cuz my memory's a little fuzzy on this. ) She was checking on me while I was take'n a crap and found me bent over looking between my legs at my hand. Of course from the angle she was seeing this from, she couldn't see my hand. So, she asked the obvious question, "What are you doing?" and being a child I answered simply and honestly, "checking to see if my butt is clean."
With a hmph, she left the room.
Then I threw the toilet paper I was holding into the toilet and reached for more, once the toilet paper came away clean, I knew my "butt was clean"
Now, the way she told the story always ended with the person hearing the story saying, "He stuck his finger where?!!??" It dawned on me that she thought I had stuck my finger in there to see if it came away clean.
It was a startling realization and I was deeply hurt that she would think I would do that. ( I was still a child remember ) It wasn't until many years later that I realized that this whole situation had a much more profound lesson for me to learn.
This happened when I was a little older, Star Wars had just been release on VHS and everyone had to have a copy. So I was re-watching the third movie for the first time since I was 10 or so. In Jedi, that's Return of the Jedi for you non-nerds out there, It gets to the point where Luke is discussing with Obi'Wan the fact that Vader is his father and that no one told Luke the truth about it. Obi'Wan tells Luke that, "A great many of the truths that we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view."
That sounded so deep and insightful at the wise old age of 16 or 17. It occurred to me that my mother had been telling that story about me for a really long time and from her perspective, she told it exactly as it happened. But if you turn the situation around and look at if from my perspective, it's still a damned humiliating story and completely untrue! Alas I was already instilled with a deep fear of Mom's wrath that still rides with me to this day and so I waited many years to actually tell her what happened that day, so long ago. It is a story which ended predictably enough, with me in pain and my mother ranting about how she had been wronged by me. Because I let her tell a story to her friends that wasn't true, for some 20 years. She wasn't concerned with the wisdom of multiple perspectives at all.
It is because of this that I can accept the fact that, "Everything is true." without losing my wafer thin hold on reality.

The powerful lesson of Stink Hand is important my son... LOL! That was a great story. How many stories do our parents and friends tell that we just let go, simply because their version is a lot funnier than ours? I have a friend whose version of certain stories makes me look better and better as the years go by. Why destroy a good story? :)

This Job is a test...

This Job is a test.
It is only a test.
Had there been an actual career
This job would have been met with
bonuses, raises and promotions.
This Job is only a test.
This concludes this message from the emergency employment community.

Man if this job is only a test, I hate tests. Test anxiety sucks.
May the goddess see fit not to bless you with her attention.

I never really got excited about tests, until the scores were about to come out. That's when I lost all appearances of sanity.
Thanks for the blessing, she has been pay way too much attention to me lately... but that's a whole different entry...

Hello!!!!??? Their lips are moving

I've been irritated with the news lately and not able to figure out why. Then it occurred to me that they have been focusing a lot on how the president or other politician did or said something which ended up in the news, affected policy or swayed public opinion. Then turned out later to be not true or they tried to hide what they did from the public. The news itself isn't what bothers me, it's the people bitching about it.
The oldest cliche' that I know of is that all politicians lie, will lie or have lied. They are among the most dishonest people on the planet and they are among the most "elite".
I'm not surprised when I find out that the president lied or that he mislead the people to further his own agenda. I'm surprised that the media was allowed to cover it at all, much less on national television.
So, How can you tell when a politician is lying?

Lying, half truths. Obi Wan told Luke that his father was dead, and only clarified things when directly asked. All things have a different point of view. That being said, purple horse shit coming from the mouths of politicians is just as stinky as brown horse shit.
Also, politicians should not get off for the same things that corporate leaders get fried for. Lying and misappropriating government funds is just as nasty as ENRON. Just my 2 cents

The New God

It has been said by some that we are divesting ourselves of God and depriving our children of some very important spiritual growth, enlightenment and information. The seperation of Church and State. Getting religion out of the schools, out of the Courtrooms... etc.
I don't think that's the case at all. We're not removing God from our day to day lives... How does Oprah put it? "We're giving God a makeover!" We just changing God's image.
Chris Rock said it best, "We're takeing religion from our schools, from our gorvernment, and from our courtrooms. But on our money it says, 'In God we trust.'"
That's right we've removed that antiquated image of the angry father-figure and replaced him with a $. In some ways I'm on board with this new idea. When I pray to money, there's either enough of it or there isn't. My answer is immediate and obvious. I only have to go to church when I run out and there are mini-churches everywhere. If the church you are at isn't from your denomination then you pay a small fee for communing with your God from their church. Seems fair to me. You work hard to earn your money and the harder you work the more you get. There isn't any of this self doubt of whether or not you are a "true" believer. Or if you've truely repented your sins. When you doubt the power of money, spend some. If that doesn't convince you nothing will. If you squander your money, you live in poverty. Punishment is immediate and you can't blame anyone but yourself. Money isn't jealous of other money, and as for love... Looking for love in money is a lot like looking for love from God. They both show you about the same amount of interest.
In the spirit of this new faith I've rewritten the old Catholic standard prayer. The "Our Father" prayer for the new God.
Our Father who art in the ATM
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy money come, thy will be done,
On Terra as it is in the net.
Give us this our daily withdrawal,
and forgive us our debts,
as we collect from those who debt against us.
Lead us not into poverty,
but deliver us from credit.

Hey! I've been on to this since I was a teen-ager, and remarkable as it may seem won my school, county and was a finalist for NY State's "Betty Crocker, Homemaker of Tomorrow" competition with what I thought was a satirical essay when asked about competition and capitalism.
My topic sentence then remains my mantra, as it seems to be yours:
"America bows to the green deity, money". Of course money from other countries isn't green. But who cares about other countries anyway.
I enjoy your blog.

Thanks SwifferMom, I appreciate the support. I've been thinking about the that entry for a long while, but never had any place to let it out. Wasn't even really sure that this was a safe place for it. But everyone here seems pretty open. I care about other countries. Although, I feel that Jesus right when he said that we should remove the plank from our own eyes before we point out the splinter in our neighbors eye. Don't want to imply that I'm a bible thumper, I don't have the fortitude to be a good christian, but JC said some pretty intelligent stuff. Been feeling guilty about not updating lately. So, I'm gonna try to get some new stuff posted in the next couple o'days. BTW Although, I only read about as often as I post, I been diggin your blog too.
