Changing hats

In Texas, among cowboys traditionally we wear two kinds of hats: a straw in summertime and a felt hat in the winter. I was late switching to my felt hat this year for whatever reason.

A couple of days ago I put on a hat I don't much like and regret wearing. Maybe it was once of those Wisconsin cheese head things, or maybe a red plastic razorback hat. Might have been one of those UT faux cowboy hats. Not quite sure what came upon me but while wearing this ridiculous hat I offered suggestions about how we might fix the tax system. Now I look back and realize I was wasting my time. This system and our current style of governance will not be fixed.

I've a few friends I put stock into, seers, if you will. They've suffered visions of our future. Dark dystopian visions. Not The Road, but certainly something quite a bit tougher than the life we now live.

So today I'm discarding the ridiculous hat and getting out the black felt to prepare for a cold and dark winter.

I feel better already. Living in a fantasy doesn't work well for me.

Contrary to what you may be told, life isn't an endless summer.

Politics and or technology won't save the day this time around.

Please excuse the temporary bout of insanity.

    Jesus Said:But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death



    sorcerers: True meaning those who use drugs to change perception of reality

    sorcerers;Those of the chemical craft know well that no change can be effected in the different species of substances, though they can produce the appearance of such change.
    Ben Bernaki: “Abrahadabra I now will change 366 trillion dollars of worthless paper into silver and gold.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke:

    Abrahadabra where did this come from?

    In the name of the father, son & holy Ghost another christ a Roman Idol invented by Constantine;

    The Idea that you could magically change bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Christ while still keeping’s its physical characteristics is the basis for logical justification for an alcoholic or drug addict to take something into their body magically changes their entire life comes from this demonic doctrine.

    Spiritual power from knowledge given by God frees mankind from the demon controlled world. Religion was rightly called the opiate of the people religious zeal or enslavement is just another form of demon control.

    Such as transubstantiation goes much deeper than just a false doctrine.(transubstantiation) demonic teaching is the real root cause of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction.

    Why does someone drink to excess to change something about their life that causes pain or suffering. Scripture used by Godly Man, Paul saying take some wine for thy stomach sake Timmy, has been used by so many AA back sliders it isn’t funny.

    In getting sober one admits to themselves that they are powerless over a physical force which changes the “reality” only in the mind who altered his mind with a chemical, this is childhood’s end in alcoholism or drug addiction.

  2. The darkest of night comes before the dawnings light. Consider this:Before Jesus transcended creation and rose into his glory he was martyred to death and descended volantarily into the darkest abyss of hell for three days.This life herein is our wintertime.
