What the…what’s happening…

I was really stoked about this album til I heard this. Yikes.

they don’t even sound like the same band I just. It. I don’t know. 

I still have hope. Just…not as much hope. I love everything else that they have done but I never really liked Alice In Chains (their acoustic ep was good).

My dad was arrested a few months ago.

That’s hard to say. It’s even harder to believe.

Out of the blue, some cops showed up at my dad’s door and told him someone had accused him of theft and assault. My dad was locked up. He was subjected to a full body search and put in a jail cell. He had to spend the night there while my family scrambled to make bail.

But here’s the thing: my dad was working at the time of the alleged crime. He’s a delivery person for a pharmaceutical company. He has his clients’ signatures and paperwork, as well as their verbal confirmations that they saw him, as evidence to back him up. He has his cell phone triangulation data which puts him nowhere near the alleged victim. Moreover, my dad is not a criminal. He’s not violent. He’s 65 years old. He’s a freaking vegan.

None of this matters. All you need in order to be arrested is an accusation. The police didn’t check my dad’s whereabouts or look into the feasibility of the accuser’s story. They didn’t care. The reality of the justice system is that you are guilty until you can prove yourself innocent.

And good luck with that because it’s going to cost you.  Bail fees, attorney fees, court fees – my dad has had to deal with all of them. And then, to make matters worse, his company fired him because he now has an arrest record.

What about the accuser?  It has since surfaced that he’s acquainted with of one of the men on my dad’s delivery route. This man was angry because my dad refused to leave deliveries on without obtaining a signature. My dad refused to do this because it’s against the law. He is required to get a signature. So this man concocted a way to teach my dad a lesson. He supplied his friend with my dad’s name and description, and he got him to tell a lie. A lie that has cost my dad his job, his savings, and his pride. A lie that is still hanging over him as court dates get pushed back and back and back.

The evidence is with my dad.  His case is open and shut. He is innocent. Unfortunately, prosecutors keep asking for and receiving more time to prepare. This has now dragged on for over 7 months. Until he gets his hearing, my dad is unable to work. He has to pay his lawyer’s retainer. He has to pay the mortgage. He has to make ends meet.

My dad has paid over $14,000 in legal fees. Now he’s unemployed and still owes upwards of $7500. My brother and I have given him everything we have. And still, the costs keep piling up. We are drowning.

I’ve started a fund to raise money for my dad. If you can donate just one dollar or two, it would help us out so much. If you can’t, please consider reblogging? Anything you can do – anything at all – would be incredibly appreciated.

The truth is that this isn’t the kind of thing you want to share with the world.  I don’t want to stand, hat-in-hand, before my friends and say, “help me.” But I have to. For my dad, who taught me that we do whatever we can to help the ones we love. He has always, always fought for me. So it’s my turn to fight for him.

Reblogged for TJ.

Jesus would not break the law? Really? Why was He put to death again?

Oh, right, Obamacare.

No, wait, it was BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO STAND WITH THE CONSERVATIVES AND THE WAY THAT THINGS HAD ALWAYS BEEN DONE BEFORE.

There are roughly 80 gabillion verses in the Hebrew Bible (aka “Old Testament”) about taking care of strangers and aliens.

There are, like, maybe 3 that have anything to do with homosexual behavior (and 0 that have to do with sexual orientation).

But no, plëase, continue to tell me how Jesus would be a Republican in 2014.

If Jesus came to America today, He’d be on the border telling Americans to welcome them as they’d welcome Him.

Then they’d arrest him in Texas and kill him in the electric chair. (After all, that’s what the cross was: state sanctioned execution.) Sarah Palin would be the first one shouting “Crucify him!”

These people don’t know Jesus or Christianity. They know Glenn Beck and Republican talking points.

Matthew, Chapter 25:31-46 (yeah I’m quoting the whole thing to deal with it)

> 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

> 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

> 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

> 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

> 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

> 44 “They also will answer, **‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’**

> 45 “He will reply, **‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’**

> 46 **“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”**

These people shouting at the border better have enough asbestos underwear to last them for all eternity. Because if they think Texas and Arizona is hot, they’re in for quite a surprise in hell.

Amen

What do you post to Facebook? Pictures of yourself yelling at your kids, or having a hard time at work? No, you post smiling photos of a hiking trip with friends. You build a fake life — or at least an incomplete one — and share it. Furthermore, you consume almost exclusively the fake lives of your social media “friends.” Unless you are extraordinarily self-aware, how could it not make you feel worse to spend part of your time pretending to be happier than you are, and the other part of your time seeing how much happier others seem to be than you?

There is a Kidz Bop version of Bruno Mars’ Locked Out Of Heaven.

It’s like, did no one at Kidz Bop Central sit down and discuss the fact that the song is just a huge love poem to a vagina?

Also they change the word “sex” to “love” in the prechorus. (Your love takes me to paradise)

Also also, it’s kind of my jam.
