We Thrive to be Heard!

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." Oscar Wilde

We all want to be heard... but for what reason?

I find my life is very segregated- well my body is not, but I divide my words, thoughts and subjects through out the Internet and I should consider consolidating them.

1.  Facebook- Is the real me that has real people that I currently (or at some time in my life) know.

2.  Twitter- @petpisces- Is the real, real me (but with a code name)because you can't see me, don't know me... and it might generate blog views.  I like twitter at times... sometimes I'll go through spells and tweet a lot and retweet cute "must haves."

3. Blogger- Is the really, really real me.  I'm still just a little skeptical about my comfort zone.  But I've crawled a ways out of my skin here.. if you can't tell by some of my radical posts.  Here I am more me than anywhere else.  The me I am in my thoughts.  The me you won't see in person because my opinions aren't popular and I'm not into debate- I'm pretty shy when it comes to being different.

4. Pinterest- Creative me...  Love pinterest!

I'm trying to delete my Facebook account because I feel I can't be me. I watch what I say.  Delete posts that I think may be taken wrong by particular types of people. I want to comment ugly things on posts that are ignorant.  I judge people by the photos they post.  I am all the time judging.  Most of the things I want to say will make it to a blog post at some point anyhow...

Do you have a "really, really, real" version of you that you keep secret?

Facebook- For Men

Most men acknowledge the Man Code Law, it's inherent in men. It works like other laws- they serve as protection and abiding by the law ensures two things-

1. A lady will know she has a real man

2. The man keeps his respect and the identity as a man.

This law gravitates and is applied to anything social. Facebook is a great tool to see who does and who does not obey the Man Code Law.

The man who keeps his man card status in check does not post up to the minute / up to date status updates. If he does post a status, it should be informative or applicable to a man approved hobby, sport, music, movie, etc..- this complete list was handed out at time of entering manhood.

How can you tell if a man on Facebook has lost his man card?

1. He posts (unless it's purely informative) about his relations with girlfriends (if you're not clear on a particular post, look at who comments or likes the post- Do more women respond or do more men respond?).

2. When he posts about his looks, his hair, his clothes or in any other way expresses that he thinks too much about himself, he is acknowledging he is fine and dandy with not having a man card.

3. He posts status updates that should be directed to one person (apologies, begs for forgiveness or outcries of undying love- no matter how subtle) ----should not be posted by a man card holding man on Facebook. Ever.

4. Status updates are being groomed, having been groomed or discuss grooming appointments for all of Facebook land to see.

5. If he earns frequent flyer miles for posting more than a couple times per week, he is expressing attention seeking behaviors that surely qualifies as ground for revocation of his man card.

Manly Pictures- Man card holders are entitled to one self-taken photo to share. More than this and he appears to be just darn weird.

Men should NEVER undress and stand in front of the bathroom mirror to capture this shot. Some of us are wondering if he just pooped, fixing to poop or needing privacy from mama. Bottom line, bathrooms are not backgrounds for your image.

There isn't a known remediation for the man who has lost his man card by breaking the Man Code Laws, however if you suspect that you are in the process of losing it, it is of best interest that you follow the guidelines listed on your man packet and try again.

****It is important to understand the man card isn't revoked for using Facebook. It's the behavior you display it that threatens your man status.

Last but not least- Men don't poke other men.

Until next time!!!!

My Christian Friends Think I'm Christian

My Christian friends think I'm Christian because I ventured in for a bit and really haven't declared my freedom from years of brainwashing..   I got sucked in to Christianity. Who am I?  I’m a searcher.  A griper.  A complainer and an extremely judgmental girl.  Not necessarily judging people according to my standards but according to theirs- it’s sort of like my life is all about calling bluff!

It is what it is.  There is no right or wrong in general, just right or wrongs based on individual standards. or legislature.

But what are my beliefs??? 
Science and religion are correct!

There is a Creator; an energy that created everything.  I believe the creator to be a mind and to be everything.  I believe God is in us.  Our heads.  Our minds.  We're connected to the power source that created us.  He's the wind, the energy, the sunlight, the rain.  The force that causes the Earth to be alive with wind, rain, volcanoes, avalanches, tornadoes, mudslides. 

God is Life.
He's like what makes a battery work.
Power. Force. Energy. Gravity.

I do not believe him to be a man, or a committee of three men.  I do not feel He is there and we are here.  He is in us as we are in Him; we're an extension of God; life, energy, and power.

We are here to experience life.  I believe we have as much time as we want here. 

I believe we are a soul- We were alive perhaps as energy before we got our bodily vehicles and we'll live after we have worn out our bodily vehicles. 

If I'm wrong, so be it.  I don't remember my life preconception and I can't see into the future so I'm not going to waste too much time arguing the afterlife.
We are here to experience a bodily life and to be happy.  or miserable.  or both. 

I think we're here because we wanted to be here.  We are in THIS body because that's the FLESH MOBILE that was available at the time of our arrival here. 

Abortion or Miscarriage =  No vacancy for the soul to enter. 
The soul goes to the next Flesh Mobile available.  That's my best answer. 
Why? Because I don't think we have the ability to actually KILL - (sending "life" to heaven or hell)

Okay- here it is- I don't believe in Heaven and Hell.

I DO NOT BELIEVE IN HEAVEN  to be a place to go after you die
IF you belong to the Republican party
IF you're good / 
IF you're saved / 
IF you're saved- BUT not gay AND don't have abortions BUT you can KILL in a war...
NOPE-No Heaven when you die.

I DO NOT BELIEVE IN HELL to be a place to go to after you die 
IF you belong to the Democratic party
IF you're bad, 
IF you're not saved, 
IF you kill babies 
IF you are gay

 there is NO COSMIC, Godly rule against GAYS, DEMOCRATS, INTERRACIAL DATING...etc.  

Christianity In a Nutshell:

*A belief in God, God in human form, and God in us. Trinity, you have to believe in all of them. 

*Ten commandments--You're not supposed to do anything listed there.  NEVER EVER.  But if you do, you can ask for forgiveness and it'll be okay- but ONLY if you ASK Jesus to be YOUR LORD and personal saviour-- because this REALLY MEANS that you don't even have to do the whole TEN COMMANDMENT thing... Nope you're exempt! woohooo! 

*Oh yeah, you can only go to Heaven if you have done that... if you don't you'll go to Hell.

*THE BEST PART ABOUT ALL THAT IS :  Once you've done all that- you can tell everyone where they are going if they do something against the Commandments (even if you don't know whether that person has asked for forgiveness and has Jesus as their Lord and personal savior)....You are RIGHTEOUS and get to do this :)

What do I think about Jesus?  I love Jesus.
Jesus got it (so did Buddha and Martin Luther King, Jr and lots others). 

Unlearn everything you were taught about religion, start fresh and read the Bible, really read in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John (this is where you read about Jesus)... You get something pretty close to this explanation here:

Jesus got upset at people and their religious Hypocrisy (the state of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have).

He thought about it- in fact he became concerned with what religion told him (at a very early age) that he spent a lot of time studying it.
He figure out God wasn't what they were teaching the people.  
He bashed religion.  and Church. 

He got it.  He got the meaning to life. He taught how to live.  How to be.  How to get what he got/ achieve the peace he achieved.  He was a teacher.  A loving teacher.

The disciples were understudies.  They were supposed to understand it as FULLY as Jesus.  They did most of it but it but Jesus died before they could REALLY understand what Jesus was teaching them.

This one man was getting followers and more were believing him and all this was upsetting the way the others (jews) had set up EVERYTHING! the way they lived; the way they had control over people.

They went after him.  This one man caused so much upset to disprove the wrong things in to make a change- a big change.  They killed him.  Can't have this ANYMORE.  

His followers made him a God.
You know how when someone is dying they tell you things.  They tell you it's important you remember.  You hear it, but don't understand it... but in time the "AHA" thingy clicks- out of nowhere... you realize what they needed you to remember. 

I think that happened. While grieving over the loss of their friend, their leader.  They mulled over their time together.  and it hit him- he had to be God.  This isn't what Jesus told them to do.....................

Then they went to tell people about it- EVERYONE. 


Saul had been after them (the Jesus followers)- all of them who bought in to the "mess" that Jesus taught.  He killed all (the Jesus followers) he could because he fought for his religion. BUT ONE DAY- he got it.  The "AHA" thingy clicked.  He was in the middle of nowhere... probably mulling over the whole "good news" thing... and it bought knocked it down.  (the bible story is WAY more metaphoric).  but he thought about it and in order to believe it as a truth, God must confirm it.  But it seems so right... what if Jesus.... was... God...  He HAS TO BE, Oh my GOOODNESSSSSS!

Saul wasn't a persecutor anymore so he changed his name to Paul.
Paul went to tell everyone about it. (he was SOOO excited you can just see him running!!!)

(now he understood what Jesus had taught, but he added that Jesus was God to it so what he learned and understood wasn't the purpose of his sharing).

They started up a church because God came and taught us this stuff-
Then they made up rules... 
Then Paul sent letters trying to educate them...
and then they made more RULES to go by (and to correct the other rules) to ensure you understand it.
The teachings get lost to more as aspirations-- achievements if you were perfect. 
THE GOOD NEWS is this: if you believe what Jesus taught was true, then all that stuff is not real.

The teachings were realizations.  The teachings are things you have to REALIZE and then you have peace.

Then there were arguments and changes and better versions.
The people split into denominations and faiths.


I believe in God, the Creator.
I love that Jesus taught me that all the man made stuff isn't the secret to Heaven (happiness).
I love that I am free to experience life as I wish- without condemnation.
I love Jesus.
I love Martin Luther King Jr. just the same.

My friends think I'm Christian because I haven't told them the way I see things..... 

Tim Tebow and Jesus Christ

I read an interesting thought on Deep Thoughts and was compelled to inject my opinion- For some reason I liked it and found my opinion valuable and so it became blog-worthy...

So the article is about a church trying to raise $50k to persuay Tim Tebow to speak to Christians.  The thought is good, the article is good- Read it: Would Jesus charge a speaker’s fee?

My Thoughts on the matter (commented on the blog):

What's interesting is the comparison of Jesus and a praying football player who has received too much attention.
The media AND the outspoken, bible pushing Christians hail Tim Tebow as if he were Jesus Christ gone Football!
Now, I'm not following everything said about Tim in the media and I really try to avoid it as much as possible because it sickens me to no end, however I don't think Tim is going about TRYING to talk about his beliefs and brainwash folks..
The mere fact that a religious organization is chasing after this man for Christian reinforcement is ridiculous-as if the Church is saying "we're losing, we need a celebrity on this."
In my opinion, he's an onfield prayer whom I assume to be christian and people have found a new martyr (to some extent he'll be persecuted).
I honestly feel bad for him- he will be judged if he kisses a girl or takes a drink THANK THA LORD he walked a straight line while in Vegas the other week! I bet he had a woman and some drinks in his room tho *wink!

I encourage your response- please comment-

Pro Life Pushers

...if life is so sacred, then stop supporting wars...

This has been eating at me ever since I read the news story that said .
they'll be showing abortion picture commercials during super bowl.

You haven't seen it? Click here: Pro Life ads to air during Super Bowl

If you aren't for something, then don't be apart of it and leave the darn government out of it.

If you are REALLY Pro~Life, stop supporting wars and capital punishment and hunting as well as abortion.

Life is life, whether is new, old or furry.

If you argue "we need to kill people in order to keep our freedom" then understand when a woman has to make the same choice. I'm pretty sure she ain't all excited about going through what she's chosen to do.

Some things are not your nor my business.

They sure don't advertise dead people on the news or commercials, and I'm appalled that they're even considering doing spots on abortion.

LIFE IS LIFE IS LIFE.  Treat it the same.

Please enjoy the wise words of Mr. Carlin:)

Treat it the same. Or just shut up and live.

The Chantix Dream

Since early December, I've been on the Chantix journey.  In the beginning, all I heard from others?  
"Just wait til you have the Chantix Dream!"

I began investigating!  I messaged people who've taken Chantix, I pulled them aside, I questioned on Facebook (of course, why wouldn't I have),
"Please, you must tell me what the Chantix dream is."

One guy told me that for him, the Chantix dream was very emotional.  He awakened from sleep all FORLORN and HEARTBROKEN for he had experienced true love and knew he'd never see her again.

Meanwhile, I had been reporting my dreams as if they were true trips I'd take nightly.

FINALLY THE CHANTIX DREAM CAME about 2 weeks in to therapy (hehe, therapy).  

And here it is:

I, along with a few other girls, am in a BIG old (70s) Plymouth car.
We come to what may have been the Mississippi River. The road STOPS at the river bank.
It was HUGE and a sparkly iridescent blue- the most beautiful water imaginable.
The water is DEEP.
(I am afraid of water- like this)
We must drive into the water and float across.
Car dives in
I look around and notice the "boat of a car" afloat.
I became confident.
Then happy
Then EXCITED and raised my hands up in the air and shouted

Have you had  "The Chantix Dream???" 

Always Do What You Can

 "Always do what you can to help and encourage others to help each other.  Don't do something out of pressure so step away if you feel you should."

It was late spring and some horrible tornadoes had ripped through several US towns leaving thousands homeless. It left thousands without clothes as well. I was looking at an overstuffed closet feeling pretty darn greedy. I wanted to donate what I could to these misplaced families. I couldn't. Red Cross doesn't accept clothing. So there I was. With too much. Wanting to help people. Cannot.

Why not donate to Goodwill? Because I know there are folks in my area that cannot even afford to shop anywhere, even if it's Goodwill. Then I think of how many people could be in need. And I bet they all don't happen to wear my size! Men, Women, Teen Girls, Teen Boys, Girls, Boys, Toddler Girls, Toddler Boys, Infant Girls, Infant Boys. I couldn't help much even if I announced that they could come by my house!

A month or so rolls by when I'm struck with an idea. The idea was overwhelming. I had to act. It was just one of those things.

I called up my (at the time) christian girl group friend and shared this news. I called the next. They were encouraging and embracing the idea with a sense of importance. I was motivated to set the project in motion.  It became the Community Clothing Swap and it goes like this: Announce location for a set date along with set hours. Folks in the community bring the clothes they want to donate and they shop through what others have brought. Perfect!

So what did we do? Well, we got in touch with the local Ruritan Club and they agreed to host our event. I went on the radio with the Mayor of our town and promoted this heavily.

And so we had it and so it was great!
There were leftovers- A LOT. People had donated trash bags full of clothes and shoes and more. When my group discussed this before the fact, we agreed to have a charity pick it up. This didn't happen. One of the girls called up a local church and wanted to store all this stuff. I'm talking 3 truck loads of stuff.

I wasn't happy. I mean this isn't my business and I'm not the president of the event, per say, but I still felt pretty pissed! This isn't what was discussed. Moreover, it was an incredibly freaking hot ass day, not to mention record high humidity and we're packing the shit up. (sense the giving heart has turned).

Alright, we schedule our next swap- I handle the website, the contact with mayor the poster designs and printing. Meanwhile, I am arguing back and forth with the group about storing (now crap) in between Swaps! Their argument was that GOD blessed them with all the clothes and it should be kept, no matter how much hard work had to go into it.

My argument was, the first swap went fine... after another swap, we'll be overwhelmed. I will tell you, I am not a fan of too much work. Besides, if GOD blessed the first swap, would he not the second? Geez.

And then a second swap- we went to the church and picked up the 3 truck loads of stuff. It had been stored in a basement, inside cardboard boxes. Guess what that combination invite? mold and roaches.

There were some people who came to the swap that felt in their hearts to donate money. One of the girls took it.  I was pissed.  We are not charity.  We don't take money.

Their argument- it'll be used to buy storage boxes.  Then someone donated a baby crib.  One of the girls rallied to AUCTION the crib. I was pissed.  We are not charity.  We don't take money.

Their argument- we can get enough money to pay for a storage unit to store all this stuff.  I announced I was out.  I was out of it all.  I had become so infuriated that I am no longer friends with the 6 girls.

Next thing you know, they are auctioning off "big ticket items" that have been donated at swaps for money- their goal- $1000.  No accounts.  No accountability in money handling.  I saw a money making thing that I wanted no part of.  Everyone on the outside was upset with me because I didn't keep the swap, since it was my idea. A part of me felt the same way. A part of me wanted to keep the Community Clothing Swap as my own thing.  But I was struck with a comforting feeling. And I was reassured....I wanted to have a swap and I got to have a swap. Two of them, actually! Mission completed.

Moral of the story is this.  Always do what you can to help and encourage others to help each other.  Don't do something out of pressure so step away if you feel you should.  

Duke Energy- Money to be Made in Winter

Have you considered this?  Duke Energy, just as the cold months were approaching, bumped your utility bill and heard your cries of affordability.  

Doesn't it make you mad to hear the "Sweater Ad?"  Doesn't ring a bell? It's the one Duke airs on the radio suggesting that  "if YOU want a lower energy bill, how bout you drop the thermostat down some, punk."  

Yep, You're gonna have to keep your 2° cooler if you'd like to see 3% decrease in your bill!

Military Bullets

This is one of those posts that will piss off majority of its readers.  But mostly it will because of their 'in box' thinking.  Guess what, this is my blog and these are my considerations.

One day, I began writing a letter to God because I thought I could be more open and honest with my thoughts- I mean, we just can't mask what we really thing from Him, ya know!

I'm sharing the nutshell of the letter from September; the time when patriotism rings her loudest.  I don't ask that you agree with me, nor hate me for my attempt to understand things at their basic level.  I only ask you consider what is before you.

Freshly on mind is the military support arguments.  Apparently, everyone but the government supports them according to the media and the folks who talk about what they saw on the news.  Here is my attempt to look at the basics of this matter- as this is my attempt to look at it, consider it, accept what I understand and to reject what isn't rational.

  • We have a military in place to protect US soil
  • but isn't this God's soil?
  • If we are protecting US soil, why are we active in all the other territories but our own?
  • Why does the US think he is world government to say what is right and wrong and to invade other countries?
  • Why do people "join" the military?
  • If people join for 'manly', patriotic reasons, why is compensation required AFTER service? Shouldn't he simply do his job? Why is getting benefits forever needed?  
  • Is this to persuade men to enlist?
  • If they join for 'freedom' purposes, tell me what is freedom?
  • If a man chooses to join a branch of military, he is agreeing that he will fight and kill others as needed as directed by his officials.  He signs up knowing the probability of going to war.
  • He knows that by going to war, he will be away from his loved ones in the US, he will be living in conditions that he is trained to survive in, but not accustomed to living in.
  • Reiterating that he decides to join the military, knowing all the above mentioned details.
  • Okay, then we look at the common American, the ones who "support our troops"
  • Why do they rally them on?
  • Why do they really think the war being fought is needed to keep our land- when our land isn't being fought over?
  • Why must we send care packages when they chose to do this job, away from many items and away from "love"
  • Why must we go on and on about patriotism and claim that You are on OUR side?
  • Why do we think we are right?
  • Why do we think others' affairs are our business?  Doesn't peace come when we MIND OUR OWN BUSINESS?
  • God, if we are praying to win these fights, I can only imagine our enemy's are praying the same prayer- which puts You in the position to choose sides!  What a dangerous tug of war we get ourselves into.
  • Lastly, what pisses me off is hearing that people join the military for a free education and gripe when they are called to duty.  
Yes, I believe we need every branch of military.  No, I am not knocking them.  Really, it's the rallying dumb-asses stateside crying for military rights and benefits that get under my skin.  The "If you won't stand behind them, then stand in front of them" people I'd really like to slap.  Get real people.  Joining the military is a choice. Everyone has to be on a bandwagon at some point.  I'm just on the one that bitches!

Day at the Races- the Presidential Races

Well it’s here- the point in the race that makes you think that running for president is a big fat joke.

Let’s face it, what human being has not done bad things?  Every person who has held office had done something bad at some point in his life, if not every day.  You are just as qualified in the “I’ve done good things” department as any candidate in this 2012 presidential election and not all “bad things” in his closet disqualify him from being able to move this country forward. Okay? accept it

It's obvious the “good man” persona has fallen away from the republicans and they have now resorted to mudslinging.  Are you going to choose your leader to be the winner of a mud wrestling contest?  Get fed up already!! It’s high times you do!

So what’s the joke?  They all laugh now- apparently presidential candidates’ coaching techniques change through the years, so now you see them doing a lot of laughing these days.  GROW UP.  Laughter doesn’t make him closer to you, nor does it make him more likeable; he looks like a nervous idiot displaying faux confidence.

The fact is being President of the United States of America is the biggest position one can hold.  Some folks vote by party, some based on religious views but at the end of the day the vote should be based on WHAT IS THE CANDIDATE  OFFERING TO DO FOR YOU.

Fellow Americans, have you forgotten that the fate of this country is in our hands?  Take your attention away from the mudslinger and look to the one standing there in front of you with an objective to put this country; to put YOU back on your feet.

One man has a plan.  Review that plan.  Does it work for you?  If so, vote for him. One man just wants to be president and will do anything to get your vote- he doesn’t have a plan to help YOU- he just wants to throw dirt at the man who does.

Lastly, if no cadidate offers anything for you; if you do not believe in any of them; if no candidate secures your vote- DO NOT VOTE.
