6/6/06

Happy Devil's Day ,everyone! Did you indulge in any sin today? My favorite deadly sin is gluttony,followed closely by lust and sloth. What's yours?

To me, "sin" is part of what makes you human.Sin is your desire,your lust,feelings both good and bad.Sin is part of what makes you,you.I feel no need for repentance;I simply try each day to be the best man that I can be.If I fail,I pick myself up the next day and try again.No sense in beating yourself up.

In case you didn't know where the "666" myth comes from,here's the Bible verse: Revelations 13:18.

I have no problem with Christianity,as long as they believe in live and let live.I will not be converting any time soon.If they get in my face,I'll be in theirs.If they're in my way,I'll want them out of my way,one way or the other.The only religion I have any interest in currently is Buddhism,which I've been reading up on.

That's my sermon for today,friends.

Life is short

So drink GOOD beer(Hail,Sapporo!).

Israel

Do you ever wonder what the world would be like if,in 1948,the Untited Nations had've voted against the establishment of the nation of Israel? Would the middle east be a more peaceful place?

Palestine is arguably one of the last European colonial states where the natives have yet to achieve independence.Palestine,up until 1948,was a majority Arab/Muslim area.What happened to them would in modern times be called "Ethnic cleansing".Thousands upon thousnads still live in neighboring states in refugee camps.Imagine being a refugee in your own land,not having the right to go home.

No justice,no peace.Bare minimum,Palestinians must be guaranteed the right of return to their homelands,Israel must withdraw from the Occupied Territories,and East Jerusalem must be allowed to become the capitol of a Palestininan nation.

While the Holocaust was an unparalled tragedy,an uninvolved nation must not be made to pay for it.Victimhood does not give one the right to make victims out of others.

Perhaps after the war,the Zionists should've asked for Bavaria instead.

5 can soup

If you're looking for something cheap,quick and easy for supper tonight,try this recipe which I adapted from my girlfriend Rosemary:

1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of pineapple chunks
1 can of chick peas(garbanzo beans)
1 can of sliced mushrooms
1 can of corn kernels
(optional)cheyenne pepper to taste

Pour all ingredients in a large pot(do NOT drain beforehand!).Heat until hot.Serve.

It's as easy as that! Tasty and nutritious!
