THE OLD SONGS WOULD BE HATED TODAY

Here is a  song from 1959 sung by The Browns. If this song were played today by a disc jockey he would probably be fired. No F bombs, no hate, no rage. Furthermore, the music genre is that of a ballad, and the modern world hates ballads.

Times have change, have they not?




And, falling in love was sung about without the exaltation of copulation:




It is no longer tolerable to the modern mind to even think those thoughts, let alone sing about them.

But, we had our lighter moments. I notice that there is no humor or silly moment allowed in modern popular music. People are so filled with rage and hate that they will not be made to laugh.

Ray Stevens sings this 1959 song first sung by the Coasters.




And strangely, the big band from the jazz era was still allowed on the hit parade. Ray Anthony's orchestra plays The Peter Gunn Suite in 1959, and the teenie boppers loved it. Not a chance this would happen today.




I leave you with a mia culpa. 

We were at times a bit mad though. Certain nut case songs slipped through, and the kids went bonkers for them. The girls sitting in the back of the bus chomping on celery from a baggy, and a transistor radio to their ear, would sing right along like this song made sense:




While this was going on in 1959 I was totally distracted by the 1940s. I wanted music that was based in real skill and creativity, and this is the song that has to be the hall mark of the 40s, which was also called The Swing Era..... In The Mood performed by the Glenn Miller Band.




But, I am no the only one who still has the warm fuzzies for the 1950s.

CHECK OUT THIS RECENT PERFORMANCE OF BLUEBERRY HILL

I end with a comment on YouTube under the Glenn Miller video:
"Men dressed better, gentlemen were appreciated and things were just a lot slower. I think the information age has ripped us from the fundamentals that make people happy." Graham Tait
Glenn Miller was dressed, in the photo, in a US Military uniform because he was on tour playing for US troops in Europe.

A MERRY HEART IS GOOD LIKE A MEDICINE

Those are the words of a Jew named Solomon, and they are still true.

America desperately needs this medicine. Hate and rage are taking over the hearts of Americans, and the sad thing is that the President, using his Twitter account, is driving the hate just as eagerly as Maxine Waters, AOC, and Bernie Sanders.

Thus, the average American sees and hears the hate from CNN and from the White House. Famous people compete to see if they can out hate other Americans. Hate is preached from church pulpits just as eagerly as from university professors.

This WILL destroy America if it goes on unchecked. You can make a difference. Will you make a vow to stop hating and find ways to be happy? 

Don't tell me you cannot be happy until all the evil and ugliness is gone. That will never happen. It is up to YOU to decide if you will be part of the solution or continue to be part of the problem by feasting daily on evil reports and the rage of other people.

Here is Eddie Jaku, a man with plenty of adversaries in his past whom he could rage at and hate. But, Eddie consciously decided one day to abandon his sour spirit and vow to be happy and help others be happy.



If you are only content when you are raging and roaring with hate for other people, you are a dead man walking in the dark. You are NO USE to the rest of the world, and you are no use to yourself. You will die an angry person, and no one will miss you.

1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Do you and I remind anyone of Jesus?

Final thought: I suspect that 90% of hate is caused, not by righteous indignation, but by fear. If you would sit still and medicate about the people, groups, and cultures you hate, you will find that at the root of that hate is fear of something about them.

Get rid of the fear, stop believing the propaganda, block all your alleged "friends" on Facebook who post fear bombs, and see what happens.

For starters, can you name even one politician who does not fan the fires of fear? They know it sells well and moves people to hate. Teach a man to hate a Republican, and he will vote Democrat, and visa versa. Politicians are some of the worst fear mongers in modern society.

But, preachers are guilty of teaching us to fear. They paint mind pictures of the wicked so vividly that we stop seeing the wicked as candidates for salvation and start fearing and avoiding them. After all, those nasty girls with the see through blouses are just too wicked to hand a Gospel tract to, right?

Here is a preacher who uses raw fear to panic the listener. Notice how even the music is calculated, with its hammering heartbeat percussion, to panic the listener.

What can fear do to you if you let it go unchecked. As I write, the news sources report that Jeffrey Epstein, the famous pedophile, just hanged himself in jail. 

Why? 

Answer: Fear

How are you living today..... who are you listening to today..... where are you going today..... which will most certainly land you in a state of fear?

And, once you can put a name of someone on that fear, who will you then hate?

It starts getting very practical, right?

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Are you the most frightened of the fact that you must love if you want to escape fear and hate?

I don't write these blog posts to give you the warm fuzzies. Thus, some hard questions that you and I need to answer honestly.

HOW LONG UNTIL THIS HACK COMES TO FACEBOOK?

This app is hackable, and the potential is deadly. Liabilities could be coming, and racism and death threats could follow.

WATCH THE VIDEO THAT EXPLAINS HOW THE HACKER CAN TAKE OVER YOUR END OF A CONVERSATION




The day is near when we will all have to decide if we still want to participate in the world at large. I can see people actually disappearing in terms of modern technology. People like Jesse Ventura don't even have a cell phone.

Our politicians will never touch this thing because they are paid off by technology companies. I personally do NOT believe that social media and Internet gurus are serious about protecting users. I believe they snoop on us so much that they defend their own hacking by also defending criminal hackers. It is the same ethic that keeps the FDA protecting Monsanto from liability for Round Up. The bribes flow, and the government goes totally corrupt.

TWO NEWS STORIES THAT MAY PROPHECY THE FUTURE

Here are the two news stories. Read both, and then return for my observations:

AMAZON IS LISTENING, VIA ALEXA, TO YOU HAVING SEX AT HOME

REPUBLICANS SET TO PASS BILL TO GIVE POLICE POWER TO BAN YOU FROM HAVING A GUN

I see this as a prophetic moment in American history.

First, we have Alexa recording your sex talk, and then we have the police having the power to forbid you from acquiring a gun. If you really believe no one will be listening to your sex take with your spouse because Amazon lets you turn it off, you are a sucker. I do not believe for a second that they really let you shut it off if they want to listen. Furthermore, your Smart Phone is used to listen to you also.

Next, all gun owners will be told they must submit to police and FBI checks for all guns they own. This will be done right after a mass shooting.

Then, a bill will be passed requiring Alexa and all such communication devices to be required in the home of all gun owners.

Finally, anything you say that some police listening center deems to indicate you are either prone to suicide, very violent, or a White Supremacist, will result in your guns being seized. Mass shootings will be arranged for each step in the process.

And, bless your heart, dear reader, YOU will willingly go along with it because you will buy Alexa yourself and kiss your right to privacy away in order to have all the techy toys you can possibly own. It is historic that the easiest way to take people's rights away is to barter them for toys, candy, and social connections. The masses will give up their freedom every time in order to get the toys.

You have been suckered into believing the US Federal Government will give you candy if you just give up a little of your freedom.

Here is the message in 1951:

"Come on-a My House" is a song performed by Rosemary Clooney and originally released in 1951. It was written by Ross Bagdasarian and his cousin, Armenian American Pulitzer Prize winning author William Saroyan, while driving across New Mexico in the summer of 1939. The melody is based on an Armenian folk song. The lyrics reference traditional Armenian customs of inviting over relatives and friends and providing them with a generously overflowing table of fruits, nuts, seeds, and other foods.

It was not performed until the 1950 off-Broadway production of The Son. The song did not become a hit until the release of Clooney's recording.




If you have Alexa in your home, you have passed the point of no return. One day, you will decide you do not like to be listened to anymore, and when you try to break the connection, you will be given the service free and told you must keep it and leave it on because the police have red flagged you.

How can I say this nicely???????????????      SUCKER

Ecclesiastes 10:20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.


And, out of the past again, the answer comes to us:

KISSING UP TO THE BEAST

President Donald Trump has met three times with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and Trump keeps telling us that he is moving Un to behave himself more and more.

Lie.

Here is what Kim Jong Un is doing to banks and financial institutions, and Trump seems to be looking the other way.


There are only two explanations for Trump's reluctance to put the hammer to this criminal nation.

1. Trump is obsessed with being famous and thinks he is pulling off a diplomatic coup in North Korea.

or..............

2. President Trump is a sucker.

Pay your money, and take your chances. This is the new America of buffoons and baboons, and idiocy is an equal opportunity exercise. Both political parties are susceptible. 

STORY TIME

When I was growing up in Africa in Tanzania my Dad did business in a nearby city with an Indian merchant from India named Walji. Walji told us, over and over, how he considered us among his best friends, and he showed sincere concern for our health and prosperity. I really think he meant it.

But, Walji was also a classic Hindu merchant shark. He would rip off his own mother to clean up on a deal. The thing that was hard for us to deal with was that Walji was really both people..... concerned and affectionale, and a viper. 

President Trump has failed to figure out that his young buddy in North Korea is the same sort of creep that Walji was. Kim really likes Trump, and he acts like a disciple of the great guru from America whenever Trump visits him. He really means it.

But, Kim is also quite willing to destroy America, starting with our banks. He kills anyone who makes the least error in demeanor within his circle of power, including his own brother.

As smart as Trump asks us to imagine he is, and he may be at that, he is being suckered big time by the fat boy from NK. The question is, in what other areas is President Trump being suckered by criminals and creeps? 

Or, to put it another way, the band is playing, and Trump asks you and me, "Shall we dance?" And, you and I are supposed to waltz to Nirvana with him.

Count me out please.

IF YOU COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.................

If you could save your life by reading history, the classics, and especially Russian literature, would you bother to do so? This is a story about a Jewish lady, during WWII, who saved her family's life because she could converse intelligently with a German officer.

Suppose the Russians one day came to your town invading America. Would you or anyone be able to talk to the Russians to find a way to make your experience less deadly? OK, you don't like my hypothetical example. So, let us say the Mexicans invaded your town the same way. Could you or anyone speak to them in Spanish? Or, would u spk to thm in texteze?

If all the mental inventory you are storing is the rubbish you get on Facebook and from your Smart Phone, what on earth do you think it will do for you down the road? The fact is, you are dumb as snot, my friend. And, I say that in all good Christian charity. I hope this video helps you see that you need to return to feeding your mind with real knowledge, the sort that cannot be found on Facebook and Twitter.




Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.



THE MOST SEROUS QUESTION ON 2019

WHO DO YOU HATE ONLY BECAUSE THE MEDIA, SOME POLITICIAN, SOME COLLEGE PROFESSOR, OR SOME PREACHER TOLD YOU TO HATE THEM?

Here is one of many such stories showing the folly of hate.




As you watch all the Democrats trying to become President, and as you listen to President Donald Trump's hate pour forth, will you become a slave of these blithering idiots who preach, "Thou shalt hate thy neighbor."?

POLICE DO HAVE ISSUES THEY NEED TO FIX

There was clearly a really serious problem with attitude by these cops. 

When dealing with a mental case individual, there is no excuse for brutalizing the person. And, when the cops' attitude toward a mentally troubled person results in death, it needs to be called murder. These cops were willing to do harm, and their mouths witness that.

THIS SCENE CANNOT BE PRODUCED BY ATHEISM

There is no music in Atheism. 

They never sing. It is characteristic of all humans around the world that they make music and sing together in some way. Atheism cannot explain the zeal of song and dance. They have no idea where it came from.

Thus, Christians too sing, and they sing with zeal in many places.

The other thing Atheists do not have is hope. They have no forward look in their life. The vast majority of the worlds tribes and cultures believe they move on from this life to a better one. The Bible has this theme all the way through, and to this hour millions of Christians look eagerly for the day Jesus Christ returns and takes his Church out of this world and to their "heavenly home." Atheists mock at this act of faith by Christians. not because it is unreasonable, but because these Atheists know they have no future. They have cussed God out, and they NEED to mock at anyone who believes they will see God one day.

Here is a classic example of hope. If you are an Atheist, and if this makes you mad, SO WHAT? I do not give diddle what you think about it. The fact is, you know your destiny..... HELL. Every Atheist has a deep fear down inside his soul that he may turn out to be wrong, and he can do nothing about it but scream in rage at Christians.

You Atheists keep screaming............ We Bible believers will keep singing. And we will sing the last verse in Heaven as you hear the verdict.......... "Depart from me, I never knew you."




I will now bell the cat. 


The reason Atheists are so enraged at Christians is because Atheists NEED our God to be there. If God were to resign and go away, Richard Dawkins and friends would have nothing to gripe about, and Richard would no longer be paid to give his lectures. Dicky boy would suddenly be unemployed if there were no God.

What really makes Dawkins wretch is that he MUST have God in his grip everywhere he goes to lecture. There is no debate when only one party shows up for the event.

HOW TO TEACH MUSIC IN INDONESIA

Watch the teacher and his student make music with the angklung in the hands of a bunch of American tourists.

KEEP A CLOSE WATCH ON YOUR DONKEYS AND HORSES

The Chinese and Vietnamese are eating up all the donkeys in Kenya. I did not make that up, folks.

READ ABOUT DONKEY DINNER IN CHINA

So, Viagra needs to mover over..... the donkeys are coming. One wonders if the demented Chinese have noted the prodigious anatomy of donkeys and made the connection. Thus, they eat donkey skin hoping to solve..................... never mind.

So, the moral of the story is, when all the donkeys are eaten up from Kenya, China will be in Tennessee and Kentucky shopping for donkeys. We may need a castle domain law to protect the American donkey population.

There is something still very primitive about the Chinese. Say what you like about their technology prowess, they are backward and demented as ever they were in the day of Genghis Khan. It is not the eating of donkeys that is so startling. It might actually taste good, but using the skin for an aphrodisiac is beyond bizarre.

Confucius say, "Man who eat donkey shall surely have many children."







People in the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi, are now in fear that not all the donkey meat is exported to horny Chinamen. Kenyans wonder if donkey meat is being peddled to Nairobi restaurants. Keep this in mind if your travel to Kenya. Choose the chicken curry or the pork sausages.

The story is that this is the first donkey slaughter house in the world. Amazing! But, as the world population grows, and as demand for animal protein increases, we may all learn to seek new sources for our hot dog contents.

Speaking of dogs...... The old ad from Oscar Meyer may one day be revised, "At Oscar Meyer we choose the most tender dogs."




GUNS RIGHTS IN THE NATION OF JORDAN
