help is never too far away, except for those who really need it.

Yeah like, this could hardly be concidered a topic for discuddion. Maybe make like one thread called 'greg' s oneliners' ore something.

Baruch did something similar for a while with an '8 don' t hear the news talking about this stuff' or something of the likes, -thread.

He isn't me.  I am far more handsome!  And I kept all that in one string, not trying to spread it all about.  And it had a purpose ... to break thru the Fourth Wall of Leftist group-think.

No magical wishing tree?  People are demi-gods, the hands and feet of eternity.  If help is needed, then be that help, or go back to kindergarten.  Milk, cookies, naps ... a lot like retirement actually ;-)

Well, I have been thinking lately that there's never a JW Booth around when one is desperately needed.

J W Booth was an actor.  His brother, earlier, actually saved Lincoln's adult son from a fatal train platform accident.  Coincidence?  I think not!  Lincoln only pretended to be dead.  It was much more fun no longer being the target of Democrat assassins and messing with his impeached VP while pretending to be his own ghost.

I think you misunderstand me Baruch, I appraise you keeping it to a single thread. I'm advising Greg to follow your lead.

I didn't take your comment as criticism.  I was trying to expand for Gregory.  Now if you tried to criticize Texas ... well ...

Help always seems so far away when you really need it.  God is useless, even if I praise him, he seems distant from memory.

That depends on acculturation.  Modern Western people have no values to speak of.  Whining consumers.

G-d is like a mantra.  A mantra only works on you if you have "made it yours".  Power of positive thinking and all that.  I get help from G-d all the time, whether I want it or not ;-)  But that is how a mystic feels.

Mantras cannot help you in reality, they only push back reality for a little while.

Texas is big but not as big as Western Australia.

And if we get too loud, the Sumerian god Enlil will drown out the noise.  People were created so that the demi-gods wouldn't have to work for a living.

Emotion that does't result in positive action, is no help.  Emo boys are helpless.

Emotion is neither a help nor a hindrance to the intelligent.
