Curiosity guided me up to the local TARGET store today, to see what was if or up.
I often pass by that store on a Saturday, and usually the parking lot is packed solid.
It wasn't full today, but there were still a lot of cars there.
I went in and was surprised-no UNISEX bathrooms, same gender signs above each as always.
I bought $30.00 worth of stuff, because guess what? I needed it, and
I don't like the idea of "BOYCOTTING" a business. I didn't like it a few years ago when
Chik Fil A and Hobby Lobby were the Liberal ...um...targets.
I also don't like being TOLD that as a good Christian I should never vote for a godless
candidate like Trump.
I will vote.
And I will buy whatever. Wherever. Whenever.
I enjoyed a great day, capped by walking down to a park and watching a lake, a Great one.
By Grace, God sends rain down on the just and the unjust.
Today He sent a beautiful day.

“We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology.”
Regardless of ideology.”
The truth, as in: “Ain’t it the…”
You don’t have to agree with me, but here is how I lay out the Lib vs Conservative conundrum.
Libs believe: Repubs are hypocrites, chained to the “Christian Hard Right”, having to kowtow to
Religionists in order to get elected.
Even if the Repubs are not religious themselves, they must cater to the beliefs of the hard liners…or get out of politics.
You see, it isn’t the Right that really ticks off the Left, it’s that Republicans play the Gospel game. According to Liberals, THAT is the longest running long con ever invented. Religion is the brainwashing of the public, chains of fear used to keep simple folk in line.
Religion is used to line the pockets of the powerful few at the expense of the ignorant masses.
Liberals KNOW that it must be hypocrisy, because (in general) they do not believe that there is a God, so the Republicans continue to perpetrate a farce to win power. Hypocrites!
Conservatives believe: Liberals are hypocrites, talking all of the time about benefiting the Common Man but the truth is simply that Liberals crave POWER, seek to rule over every component of the nation.
According to Conservatives, Liberals reason that, as there is no God, Man must pull himself by his own bootstraps, fix all of the World’s problems. There isn’t any God to whom Man can look for help.
So…it is a theological, not a political conundrum.
Here’s a test for you Bernie and Hilly supporters: if either (or both) candidates held a press conference tomorrow and declared that they have become Christian, actual born again (like the hard Right) Christians…would they lose your support? Would their change of religion change your opinion of them?
Here’s the funny thing in this election: The REPUBLICANS are running Donald Trump, as godless as any
Democrat, full of pride and known to accept many of the Democrat positions over the years. He does not ‘kowtow’ to anyone, most especially the Religionists on the Right. Perfect candidate for 2016.

Attention all LIBERALS: Be warned that this is an ELECTION YEAR, and y'all have been lukewarm to the RACE so far.
So: be wary of ridiculous argu-fights being foisted on us all which are DESIGNED to get your Liberal juices flowing.
Last year you never heard a single whisper about trans gender bathroom choices.
BUT NOW!!! IT'S AN ELECTION YEAR!!!!
LIFE OR DEATH! HATE EVERY ONE WHO DISAGREES WITH YOU!!!
Or don't-makes no never mind to me.
So, about the time that the picture above was taken, I was on board an icebreaker which dropped anchor next to a tiny town in Greenland.
Being a sailor, I went along with my mates to see the sights, which is sailor code for find all the bars.
Only one bar in the town.
I was an 18 year old know nothing in a strange land.
After a while I needed to use the bathroom and...only one bathroom. No lock on the door; not even sure that there WAS a door. Just a sign that said "Unisex Bathroom".
I cut my night short and made my way back to the ship.
I believe that the Target store decision may make things worse...for Target.
Trans-gender peoples must only be (guess and approximation) like .00000001 % of the population.
I don't like the idea of 'boycotting'.
If people boycott Target to the extent that the business begins to lose money and close stores...lots of employees who had nothing to do with the bathroom decision might lose their jobs.
My advice-pretend this whole mess never happened and go about your lives. Three months from now it won't even be an issue. Why get all angry about an issue which will soon go away?
As for you Liberals-come up with some substantive issues which we can discuss. It's an election year-surely there is something to talk about!

Hitler 'won' the right to commit cowardly suicide as his Reich failed.
Sorry, Mein Unhappy Kampfer, but you were not a winner.
President Obama has won two elections. A few decades from now we may know how History remembers him. To me, he is not a winner.
Trump. Loser, even if he wins the Presidency.
Winners? Millions, maybe billions of them-Life's Winners accept Christ, are accepted by Christ.
Live Forever at Peace with God and your fellow Mankind, which will be very kind, indeed.

Why would CNN or anyone GO THERE?
In the truest sense of the word, Bernie is a Protestant.
Not like Luterans-they're another kettle of cod.
No-Bernie has Protested his entire life against stuff.
That IS his religion.
Y'know, in the past few presidential elections, we Conservatives have been stuck with
candidates we do not like.
So now the sandal is on the other afoot, and Dems have to hold their noses for a change.
Have fun choosing between a protestant and a soon to be defendant!

to do with God, so we can talk openly.
I have been blessed lately, encouraged, and I want the same for you.
Read Psalm 34. Out loud. Take your time, measuring the words, feeding on what God has put in David's heart to share. Meditate on the psalm, and I suggest reading it out loud, as it helps us to take in more of the message than when we only skim it with our eyes.
That's it-may God richly Bless you today!

Leaving God out of the equation...
Christians are called to be
We join the military and police/fire/rescue,
Build hospitals and give to charity in abundance.
If you have a different opinion of Christians...
Before you answer, while we Christians are all called to follow
what I mention above, there are some who fall short. I know that.
But in general, we aspire to the list above.
So...if the attributes of the list are generally true...
If your opinion of us differs...Why?

Secretary of State/failed Oval Office sniffer John Kerry declares that ISIS is 'faltering' in the Mideast.
We haven't heard such good news since 1938, when Neville Chamberlain said, "Yeah, we've got
old Adolph boxed in pretty tight-this paper (holds up an egg on a stick) is proof positive that we've heard the last of him."

Can't wait, so...Random Thoughts Tuesday On Monday!
As I haven't ruffled enough feathers lately, this week is populated with some very religious days.
I hate religion. I resist Pagans telling Christians how to Church. No Maunday Thursday. No Easter.
I will rejoice in remembering Christ's Resurrection. Pagans can go do their pagan stuff somewhere else.
Tomorrow or soon the Apple Computer vs FBI hootenanny will be performed in some courthouse, generating a lot of ink and verbiage from Talkheaders on medias.
Really simple for me: Apple can tell the FBI to go climb a fig tree. The Government can STOP you from doing something illegal, but cannot abrogate your or my or Apple's protected rights, forcing us to DO something illegal. If the FBI wants to catch bad guys, they have to do it LEGALLY within the limits of the LAW, or they are themselves criminal.
Speaking of criminals, President Obama is in Cuba right now.
Caught a bit of news-a major league baseball player who defected from Cuba a few years ago has returned to his homeland to take part in an exhibition game against the Cuban National team.
He makes millions of dollars in America; according to the news report, before he defected he played baseball for the princely sum of four dollars a month.
I would like to see President Obama living on four dollars a month. In Cuba.
Another case of defection/asylum: good ol Bernie Sanders, who defected from Reality back before you were born (maybe) may end up in an asylum before this political season runs its nasty coarse.
I heard that his campaign was crowing about raising more money than the Clinton campaign in the past month.
What? What self respecting Socialist brags about raising money? Sounds kind of Capitalisty to me.
Be careful, Bernie! Gather too much money and you might become a millionaire and then you would be forced to protest yourself! Hence, the future asylum gig.
No Random post would be complete without giving my favorite Hillary a mention.
Hill? Cackle down to the local orchard and go climb a fig tree. Tell Bill: "I feel his pain."

This isn't a beat, but a reasoning. With the unreasonable...I mean Bernie supporters.
I have no doubt that Sanders is sincere in his beliefs. He has a lifetime of experiences which have molded him in to what he is today.
But I disagree with most of his fantastical beliefs.
Let's start with black people.
Bernie was THERE! Being arrested as a young man at civil rights protests.
I have no problem with that-it was an unequal time...but that time is no more.
Except in Bernie's head. And the heads of all Liberals who think "Black People" are a
disadvantaged GROUP which need protection from others.
If you see only groups, you never see anyone as an individual. There are millions of black people around the globe who do not need 'race leaders' to speak for them, to Lead them.
Each one is an individual. In this country there are millions of people who are black who work, raise kids and do their best to make it through life while totally ignoring those who tell them they are an unequal group who should be ANGRY.
Bernie also has a class problem, and I don't mean those shirts he wears.
Liberals and in this case, Socialists are all about economic class warfare.
Bernie hates the rich and thinks you should, too.
Bernie loves the poor and thinks you should, too.
He's a Socialist. Which means his ideal will be to do away with both.
Socialists will promise anything (free college?) to anyone, but in Socialism everyone is a slave to the State.
In Bernie's head, if you have a personal ambition- to be a doctor, an engineer or, Heaven help you, a writer...
you may be educated, but not for you. Only for the State. Your life only matters as a tiny cog in the State machine.
It's time for a but, Doug!
But, Doug! If Bernie wants to do away with poverty, that's a GOOD thing!
And if he could deliver on that ideal, his would be a noble cause. But look at every Socialist state on the planet which hasn't yet died, and you will find Poverty.
You'll find the Rich there, also. In charge of the State. Forcing their slaves to live and die so that they can live in luxury as they run everything.
Bottom line-while you may admire some of his arguments in a nebulous "That's right, Bernie! Stink it to Trump!" kind of atmo...if you think for yourself, wish to determine where you will live, what you will do for work, how you will live your life...then Bernie is your political enemy. Vote accordingly.

One method of relax that I've shared before, but not at Facebook:
Do dishes. By hand. Fill a glass with warm soapy water. Hand cover the top, flip it upside down and concentrate on letting the water SLOWLY drip out. Forget the world and watch the warm water
find the sink until the glass is empty. Ah.
