Impending Bummers, Arabs, and Popcorn..OH MY!

The beauty of free speech!  I get these emails that blow my mind. So hate-filled. Outright fabrications and half truths taken out of context. I go to snopes.com and find out the truth. Today’s was about Islam considering everyone infidels, titled “What’s an Infidel?”  I included it at the end of this blog….

As you can see from snopes, http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/allah.asp , whoever created this email twisted the truth to use it to show why we should feel totally threatened by Islam…. What is the value in this??? What good comes from using hate filled fabrications and passing them off as truths???  Maybe they own an armament company and want to sell tanks!!??dead fish

Maybe people who forward these emails find the world threatening.  I too find the world threatening.  In my world view,  the evil doer is our lifestyle; the car dependant, over consumptive, polluting the air, water and soils, destroying the balance ecologically, based on an economy that often uses externalities as a way to “offshore” responsibilities, side effects, and collateral damage all in the name of progress and economic development.

We Americans makeup 4% of the world’s population and “consume” 25% of the earth’s resources.   So “we Americans” are not the problem; We’re only doing 1/4 of the “consumption”.  Much of the world’s population aspire to the Western lifestyle. When I say “Houston we have a problem.”, I am saying there is no longer a we vs them.  It is us.

The piece of this world view, as I understand it, that pisses me off the most,  is the idea of “them”; We are the good guys and they are the bad guys.

It reminds me of two kids arguing about who’s eating more than their share of the popcorn, while the theater is burning.

(what the heck, let me give the fear mongering a shot!)

Send this letter to your network. You will have good luck!

Otherwise, all manners of catastrophe will rain down!…

Increasingly severe Hurricanes and Tornados will rip you apart.

Catastrophic flooding and permanent droughts will blight around the planet.

Massive chemical poisoning will invade your soil, your rivers and oceans.

Your crops will be genetically modified and overuse of pesticides will produce pesticide-resistant superweeds that are uncontrollable.

Endocrine interrupters in your food supplies will turn your people of child bearing age infertile. Your female children will start menstruating at 9 years old, or younger.

Your oceans levels will rise, and cause massive migrations.

Over use of pharmaceuticals and anti biotics will create super bacteria and viruses that will turn your antibiotics impotent, ravaging inpatients in your hospitals.

The people upwind of you will show great arrogance in the face of nature’s power, and cause radiation to spew upon your head, waters and fields.

And this is just before breakfast!!

In the afternoon, bee populations, weakened by pollution, stress, and a diet of corn syrup,  will have massive die offs, and the human race will disappear in three years, as the food supplies disappear.

The extra carbon in your atmosphere will cause carbonic acid to form in the oceans, the coral will die off, and the food chains in the oceans will be massively interrupted.

Your coal fired power plants will spew mercury over the lands and waters, contaminating your fish. Mother’s milk will become unsafe to feed to their babies.

You will over consume the planet’s fossil fuels, the price of gasoline will soar higher and higher, and you will be spending more and more for gasoline and everything else that is made from plastics or transported.  You will be spending $8 a gallon to fill your car within 5 years.

As the price of gasoline rises, massive amounts of Americans who currently are commuting long distances to work, will be forced into car pooling then lose their homes as they aren’t able to afford the commute. Home values will continue to drop, as more and more homes go into foreclosure. By 2025, the market will be oversupplied by 20 million suburban homes.

Trillions of dollars of commercial real estate will go under, as suburban residents leave their sprawl communities and shopping malls behind.

The snowpacks will decrease world wide and massive droughts will become more regular in occurrence.  Future wars will be fought over water.

Search snopes and see if these are for real or baldfaced lies and fabrications!! All these are scenarios appearing on our horizons…I hope they don’t come to pass, but as far as I can tell, if we keep doing what we’re doing, the way we’re doing it,  the current best guesses say these are our future.

I’ll grant you that all these catastrophes aren’t going to happen because you didn’t forward the email. What I am saying, to quote Pogo “We’ve met the enemy, and he is us,”  all 6 billion.  Everything else, IMO, is arguing about popcorn, fabricated as convenient distractions.

We’ve got work to do!  Share the popcorn..Let’s make sustainable real!

WHAT’S AN INFIDEL ?

This is a true story (this is a tipoff “BIG LYING AHEAD!”) and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.

The man who walks with God always
gets to his destination.If you have a
pulse you have a purpose. 

The Muslim religion is the fastest
growing religion per capita in the
United States , especially in the
minority races!! (a little fear poke)

Last month I attended my annual

training session that’s required for
maintaining my state prison
security clearance.
During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers (as explained

by snopes, this is where the Big Lie begins, there was no Islamic Religious representative

there. The man who gave the presentation about Islam was not a Muslim minister: he was

an inmate pressed into service to present a short film on Islam and answer some questions

when the prison’s Volunteer Coordinator was “unable to find an Imam to speak”.)

representing the Roman Catholic,

Protestant and Muslim faiths,
who each explained their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in
what the Islamic had to say.
The Muslim gave a great presentation
of the basics of Islam, complete
with a video.

(if you go to snopes link at the beginning of this post, you’ll see how twisted and hate filled

the fabrication gets at this point) After the presentations, time was
provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed
my question to the Muslim and asked:
‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong,
but I understand that most Imams and
clerics of Islam have declared
a holy jihad [Holy war] against the
infidels of the world and, that by
killing an infidel,
(which is a command to all Muslims)
they are assured of a place in heaven.
If that’s the case, can you give me
the definition of an infidel?’

There was no disagreement with my
statements and, without hesitation,
he replied, ‘Non-believers!’
I responded, ‘So, let me make sure
I have this straight. All followers of
Allah have been commanded to kill
everyone who is not of your faith so
they can have a place in heaven.
Is that correct?’
The expression on his face
changed from one of authority
and command to that of a
little boy who had just been
caught with his hand
in the cookie jar.’

He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’

I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have
a real problem trying to
imagine The Pope commanding
all Catholics to kill those of
your faith or Dr.Stanley ordering
all Protestants to do the same
in order to guarantee them
a place in heaven!’
The Muslim was speechless!

I continued, ‘I also have a

problem with being your friend
when you and your brother clerics
are telling your followers to
kill me! Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah,
who tells you to kill me in
order for you to go to heaven,
or my Jesus who tells me to
love you because I am going
to heaven and He wants you
to be there with me?’
You could have heard a pin
drop as the Imam hung his
head in shame.


Needless to say, the organizers

and/or promoters of the
‘Diversification’ training seminar
were not happy with my way
of dealing with the Islamic Imam,
and exposing the truth
about the Muslims’ beliefs.
In twenty years there will be
enough Muslim voters in the
U.S. to elect the President!


I think everyone in the U.S.

should be required to read this,
but with the ACLU, there is no
way this will be widely
publicized..( I just can’t get over the fear mongering, hate baiting used …scum bag bald faced liars..Brian)
