It’s “Just” My Opinion

what only just few days ago

I was “driving” on the right

then today AUTOMATTICALLY

the “road” has changed to plight

beep beep then boop

new “stove” for mind soup

they’ve “twittered” away

the formula for TASTE

and yet I’m here

with thoughts so clear

And, SO. THIS NEW Generation

Have you ever watched the movie “[The Shoes of the Fisherman]”, starring  Anthony Quinn   and Laurence Olivier ? The ‘story’ appears to have changed from the “Pope’s” originating COUNTRY, ( Siberia ), to Argentina. The plots are, DEFINITELY, “OF” THEIR respective “eras”. Times when HATREDS and FEARS cause(d) ‘ HELL’ to become ever more VISIBLE.

In these times of ‘America’s’ “Greatest Generation” coming into their extinction the rules of SACRIFICE, ( In, ALMOST, ALL its forms.), have been EXTINGUISHED by the GREED(S) of  “BUSINESS” PERSONIFIED in the form of an ‘ADDER’/ ACCOUNTANT.

Lavishness and,( sorry, no umlauts.), UBER  international educations, in countries that have controlled the finances of this Orb for too long, have lead those that think that HO CHI MIN is the texting of a derogatory description of a “Loser’s girlfriend, to become the new “dot-COMICS”. And, that a “TRICKLE DOWN” is the response of a Grandparent’s  “PAD” not doing its job.

BUT (!), the sadder, (“EST“!?!), part of  HOW MUCH CHARACTER, (the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.), HAS been ERODED from those that were supposed to BE the RUDDER, ( A rudder is a device used to steer a ship, boat, submarine, hovercraft, aircraft, or other conveyance that moves through a medium (generally air or water)),  to get “US” through the routes taken in “this” LIFE.

We’ve SEEN WEINERS displayed on the “platters” of the INTERNET. And, had “christian” leadership choose ANY DAY as a “good day” for a ‘NAZI-ISTIC’ BONFIRE… (I just hope that MORE of these types OPT for (BIGGER ) RATTLESNAKES to prove their “point”.). But, after the FUROR over “DESIRES”, comes the “NEWS” that the YOUNGEST Bishop of the CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS… Okay, here’s the story, from a PROFESSIONAL JOURNALIST.

Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, the bisop of Limburg, Germany, has come under fire over a $42 million renovation of his residence.
By ALISON SMALE
Published: October 12, 2013

BERLIN — Since being elected in March, Pope Francis has quickly made a mark with his displays of modesty, eschewing lavish papal apartments for a spartan guesthouse in Vatican City, wearing simple vestments, carrying his own bag and preaching against a Roman Catholic Church hierarchy that he said was overly insular and too often led by “narcissists.”

Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst

Apparently, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, 53, the bishop of Limburg, Germany, for almost six years, is not on the same page as his new boss.

Roman Catholic bishops rarely serve as Page 1 tabloid fodder or top the national television ratings. But the prelate of Limburg earned this dubious distinction in 24 hours last week as outrage swelled after the news media reported the cost of the renovation of his residence, about $42 million, and a state prosecutor in Hamburg charged him with lying in a legal case.

The bishop ordered up a palatial living room, and his apartment alone cost $3.9 million, according to Jochen Riebel, the spokesman for the body administering church property in Limburg. Mr. Riebel said the bishop lied last summer when confronted over the cost, estimating the renovation at just $13.5 million.

Citing Mr. Riebel, the German news agency DPA itemized the work: $474,000 for carpentry and cupboards, $610,000 for art, $135,000 for windows for a private chapel, $34,000 for a conference table, $20,000 for a bathtub.

“For heaven’s sake!” the headline atop the nation’s largest-selling tabloid, Bild, screamed on Friday. Over a graphic that showed the bishop’s living quarters and offices, it asked, “Why does the bishop need a €783,000 garden?”

By Friday, calls for the resignation of Bishop Tebartz-van Elst were multiplying.

The church exists to serve the weak, the sick and the poor, said Stefan Vesper, the leader of the country’s biggest organization of Catholics and among those calling for resignation. The bishop’s behavior “is not the Catholic Church,” he said.

In September, as thousands of Catholics signed petitions for and against him, the bishop, whose diocese of 682,000 believers includes rural Rhineland but also Frankfurt, the banking metropolis, begged forgiveness from all whom he might have “hurt and disappointed.”

After a visit from a Vatican envoy, Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo, who was sent to investigate the growing furor, the bishop agreed to have the German church investigate his spending, which he has insisted incorporated 10 separate building projects and was mandated by preservation laws.

On Friday, the bishop scrapped a planned trip to Israel with a church choir, but remained silent, behind the walls of the controversial residence.

“He will have to step down; there is no alternative,” said Joachim Heidersdorf, chief reporter for Nassauische Neue Presse, a newspaper in Limburg, a picturesque small town whose cathedral dates from more than 800 years ago.

In a telephone interview, Mr. Heidersdorf marveled that the bishop, who he said communicates with just handpicked reporters, had chosen now to talk only with the influential Bild, which published his spirited defense on Thursday but went on the attack with Friday’s front page. Television reports about the Limburg case attracted top ratings Thursday night.

For many commentators, the case in Hamburg hurt even more than the ballooning bills for the residence. A senior state prosecutor, Nana Frombach, formally charged on Thursday that the bishop made false statements twice under oath during his legal action against the weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel, which in 2012 reported that he flew first class on a visit to the poor in India.

If found guilty, the prelate could face a fine. Much worse than his spending, in the eyes of Claudia Keller, writing on Friday for the daily newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, is the formal charge that he lied and that “till today, he is sticking hard by that lie.”

“That is not just embarrassing and a violation of the Eighth Commandment,” she wrote. “It is the complete opposite of the life that Pope Francis imagines for his bishops.”

By late Friday, Bishop Tebartz-van Elst, who was appointed to Limburg by Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, a German, was clearly embarrassing even the cautious leaders of the roughly 24 million registered Catholics in Germany.

Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, who said he was befuddled by the multimillions spent by the prelate when the figures emerged this week, said pointedly: “We bishops must ask ourselves, where and how we live. A new building represents a chance to send signals.”

“Pope Francis is preaching to us all of the simple life, humility and modesty,” the archbishop said, according to the newspaper Passauer Neue Presse. “We all feel how pressured the situation is,” he added, noting that it was the first time he had heard of a prelate being formally charged by prosecutors. “That upsets me greatly. If it is confirmed in court, then we have a new situation.”

The archbishop plans to be at the Vatican this week and said he would discuss the case with the pope. Bishop Tebartz-van Elst was reported to be flying to Rome on Saturday. Canon law experts quoted by the German news media said that only the pontiff could decide to remove the bishop.

Bishop Tebartz-van Elst, who was ordained in 1985 and studied in France and at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in the late 1980s, was Germany’s youngest bishop when he was installed in January 2008.

His predecessor, Bishop Franz Kamphaus, had reached the church retirement age of 75, but was apparently a cleric more in the spirit of Francis. According to Christa Pongratz-Lippitt, a correspondent for The Tablet, a Catholic weekly in London, Bishop Kamphaus moved out of the bishop’s palace into a small apartment in the adjoining seminary, using the official residence to house refugees.

And, to think that HUMILITY is a VIRTUE.

Citizens Punished For The Pusuit of HAPPINESS

If you’ve never been to [TREEHUGGER.COM] you have missed one of the definitive news agencies pertaining to our environment.
To bring a bit of what is happening to communities, via their local governments, the example of how trite the elected are becoming is shown by the fact that the city if Oak Park, Michigan is spending TAXPAYER time and MONIES on prosecuting a family for improvising to stretch their food bill, provide BETTER NUTRITION and give their neighbors a different view of plant types in the community.
I only write this as one trying to help the family, TREEHUGGER, and the rest of US by the chance that you’ll be caught on guard and DO SOMETHING for this family and yourselves. Because it IS all about THE PEOPLE.

OUI! THE PEOPLE

Where Echoes Return From

In searching for things to “rant”about I find that when flitting between the offered headlines, and the better stuff at the right hand columns, there’s a chance to fall, (FACE FIRST!), into a story that tells a lot more than I’d hoped for. And, to TOP it off, that someone who’d stumbled onto an article happens to be oh-so-near the culprit OF what triggered a new “rant”.

The on-line news offerings lead me to the [KARL ROVE] offal slash interview that he gave to [DER SPIEGEL] Online, about his qualified opinion of the Obama Presidency. After the herculean effort to NOT grind my teeth to powder I entered their area called FEEDBACK. I’ll let YOU read what I entered into the little box, which I kept a copy “OF” so that if they didn’t accept / “OKAY” it by the editor, that I’d have something for ‘proof’ of my time spent “typing” fruitlessly…

“How VERY interesting that in ALL this time that you’ve been trying to tell the “English” speaking readers, that happen across an article such as this, that there is a “justifiable” reason to present the continuingly disastrous PROPAGANDA from the GRANDSON of the ARCHITECT of BIRKENAU: KARL HEINZ ROVERER.To attribute ANY credence to his REICH-ish deportments was a sad investment of your reporter’s time and effort. My former wife would agree… she’s a KRUPP descendant.”

Letter to the editor
Re: SPIEGEL Interview with Karl Rove: ‘Obama Has Turned Out to Be an Utter Disaster’

10/23/10 10:07:29 PM

“I wrote my sincere opinion about how this modern Goebbels is blaming others to create their Scapegoat for TRUE crimes against HUMANITY and the WORLD itself. The revelation that this AMERICAN reader of the Karl Heinz Roverer grandson makes his pulp announcement of the opening of new BIRKENAUS. THAT feedback was BURNED by the editors of DER SPIEGEL, as too fresh and controversial , coming from the former spouse of one of the KRUPP family’s offspring here in the “States”. This is sad as we, HERE, know how “History is written by the winners” except when the “loser” can PAY OFF their KIN.”

“This WILL be placed into my next BLOG article on WORDPRESS.COM: ‘Omegetymon’. Thank you, for helping me share some LIGHT on how people such as Karl Rove is continuously helped by waffen journalism.”

“Second verse… SAME as the FIRST”… (Thanks Herman’s Hermits.)

Reward for the SECOND attempted “READER FEEDBACK”= I have NO IDEA , as yet, though I DO believe that IT, too, will NOT find favor with me.

The BEST part of this is that there was a comment to my previous article that came from a GERMAN site run by a ‘young’ woman. ( The site is entirely written IN German. ) I thanked her for stopping by and asked her to read the ‘Rove’ responses.

It’s “funny” that this wonderful devise allows us such access to the, hopeful, corrections that need to be rulered-across-the-knuckles of those that continue to toss Sodium onto the waters of PEACE…

The saddest part of this is that Karl Rove is, still, being supplied with Sodium… and he HAD to cross the Atlantic to give the interview. It’s his NATURE to destroy… Apples and Trees you know ? Youve been in the middle of the report for over ten years now.

Please note that at the time of my second attempt to enter my opinion that there were only seven ACCEPTED responses to the article.

 

It DON’T make NO Sense

Well, at least a Fox headline will let you know the BASICS of what the story is about.

[SUPER TYPHOON BEARS DOWN ON PHILIPPINES]. After WAITING for the “bypass” to register from their INANE advertising poop there was NOTHING to do with a meteorological event in the South China Sea WHATSOEVER. Again, the “News” media has found, yet, another way to bombard the public with their “Pimp”-like ‘cum’-ons of a fifteen year olds inquisitive urgency to “find out” what everybody’s all a-tingle for.

It seems that the more confusion they get the public to attempt to digest, the MORE IN-digestion they can cause.

It’s sort of like the joke about when ALL the “body’s” parts got into an argument about which was the MOST IMPORTANT. The brain made its point that most of the body’s direction and decisions were made from “top-dead-center”. Where the eyes gazed to show them all their surroundings. The mouth spoke of the pleasures the IT brought “from” the table to nourish the entire “community”. Each part made their sale of WHO was THE most IMPORTANT, when, finally, the Sphincter wafted its plea of recognition… After the uproar of choking laughter subsided the Sphincter closed itself OFF from the clique of bodily “nobilities”. SOON, the mouth got dry, the eyes couldn’t focus, hands twitched and knees trembled, The RINGING of the ears was so bad that the body parts thought that they were at an early ‘WHO’ concert. After what seemed like a lifetime the parts ALL agreed to the fact that out of all of them the Sphincter WAS the most IMPORTANT. Without IT doing the rest of the body’s ‘dirty work’ the rest could NEVER accomplish what THEY do.

So, there you have my version / opinion of why the “news” agencies are working for [REPRESENTATIVES of AFRICAN MAMMALS].

And if this “article” makes NO SENSE to YOU, then maybe YOU understood the MSNBC post to the headline.

My guess is that  the “Muslims got it right” because they’re [\’CLOSER\’],

The Slyness of a Fox Lead Line

I’ve been very surly towards the Fox “news” network, but have waited just for THIS MOMENT. To bring their unintended presentations of the OBTUSE into the “light” they shine. Within HOW I perceive their ‘journalistic‘ “prowess.

We are closing upon the “HALLOWED” season, where [MARY SHELLEY] may have thought of the mirror image of a [STUART SMALLEY], if she were with us today.

And, then there’s the situation of this time period , also being that of the “mid-term” elections in these United States of America. There are SOOOO MANY “endorsers”= political advocates, ( Read: POLI= many/ TIC[K]S= BLOOD SUCKERS who Give DISEASES.), coming out of the weeds to tell US WHAT we should think and WHEN. The WHO’S are now in THREE categories… RED, BLUE and PEKOE.

As I said, Fox “news” has provided me with the BEST HEADLINE EVER…

[FRANKEN TO STUMP FOR COONS IN RACE AGAINST NON- WITCH] !!!?

How marvelous ! With HOW OFTEN the [RACE CARD] HAS been used as an intended “trump”, ( That would be ALL “members” of the “CRAYOLA COALITION” recognized by the CENSUS BUREAU.), of ‘TRUTH’ the “Evelyn Won’t” readership here in “Uh-MAR-CUH” will think that …

a comedian, that played an (OBVIOUSLY) single Man on “TEE-VEE”, got elected by some Yankee state and is going into the “SOUTH” to endorse some “black guy” running for office against [ELVIRA\’S] non practicing cousin.

Fox “NEWS”, OUR CHAMPION

I REFUSE to apologize for this article.

Monty’s Three Card Gold Mine

There are just FEW days until we get to STOP the insanity that IS this year’s mid-term election CAM-[PWN]. And the sad part is that “MOST” of those that will do so will be “pulling” that lever like they are RE-ELECTING G.W. Bush all over again… which is EXACTLY what the G.O.P. has been planning throughout. TOO FEW will look DIRECTLY into the mirror of truth, knowing that this ENTIRE FIASCO of Housing failures, Tax Cuts that equal the ensuing/ continuing [BUDGET DEFICIT] and FEAR were, ACTUALLY INHERITED from the PREVIOUS EIGHT, plus, YEARS. The former first “pilot” making sure his combat [“MEDALS“] were “JUST”.

If I’m oracularly gifted to say that this “JUNCTURE” of “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” and folks, continually, applying for/ GETTING the HOME(LESS)STEAD ACT, is it ANY wonder that the BLAME IS/ WILL/ WOULD be dumped onto the FIRST, (And, most likely ONLY, for the next two… GENERATIONS.), non “COMPLETELY” European descended President. (The only Native-American to be a “Breath Away” was [CHARLES CURTIS].)

What PERFECT TIMING! The years of Republican rule left us without the GOLD Base, for the [DOLLAR]. As Nixon got booted another Pachyderm eases our ANGER, a bit, to hide their next onslaught called the [TRICKLE DOWN], which only worked for [ENRON], and more recently, [BERNIE MAD(E)OFF]. Just HOW MANY jobs have been “resettled” in other countries ?

It is amazing, to me, that the politicians that were so SOUNDLY “PUNTED” last election have re-suited, ( HE-E-E-ERES MONTY !!!), as their Geppetto has attempted to re-string his little boys and girls with DONKEY INTESTINE. Made , almost, ENTIRELY of BLACK CAT GUT.

The “SHUFFLE” that ‘Monty’ has given “us” is with the [BEAVER, DARTMOUTH AND ELEANOR], three of the most famously unknown FACE CARDS today. They’ve been played in ALASKA and throughout this nation with the infusion of some [ARMED], its growth looks more and more like a KAMPF/ STRUGGLE for those that just want their lives back. We’ve never been told how much Tea was thrown overboard and how much was sold at a higher price because it was now decaffeinated, ( By the SALT water !).

As we get closer, and closer, the candidates are so busy pitching poo that [CAUCASIAN ACTUARIES] are beginning to look like THEY can see into the future.

No matter what, the ONLY people to watch out for are the ones that take Monty’s money and walk to the BACK of the crowd… They ARE the ones PUSHING YOU TO THE “FRONT”. Slow them down, or get YOUR friends to stand beside, AND WATCH the “SHUFFLE”.

He’s ALREADY got you by a [TRI-llion], or so.

And this is how your grandchildren will play…

09/30/2010 Update: It’s not that the WORLD is going to “hell in a hand basket”, it’s that the WORLD has MADE us that basket, by “our” request. And the “New kids’ on the block [CAN\’T] undo what “WE” HAVE let BEGIN… AND ALLOWED to CONTINUE. When you’ve had enough it will be TOO LATE. So brush up on the [\’ANCIENT\’ SKILLS]… We’re, ALL, going to NEED them.

tHE eCONOMY of sNAKE oIL sALES

For a “Man of Letters” our current and past Presidential family members, that WOULD be George and Barack, hadn’t/ haven’t remembered the SERIOUS LESSON of March 24, 1989, 4 minutes past midnight…

… The [EXXON VALDEZ] was ‘Captained’ to the “presumed” chorus of “What do you do with a drunken sailor?”, and showed the world just how responsible the greed of oil profit “WILL” be. A more recent example of how the [INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY] is “tolerating” the “drug”of oil should be a Rams Horn blast to those that would “TRADE” their “[ \”GREEN\”] for the [SNAKE OIL] of “whole life” [INCARCERATION] and fiscal [INTERMENT].

The world ISN’T lauding the President’s labeled “[SHORT TERM]” solutional [PLAN]. If there’s one thing that IS “for sure” it.IS that the [VIRGINIA BEACH]advertising graphics will HAVE to include sceneries like what was viewed from the San Fransisco “GOLDEN” GATE PARK…

And, we ALL know how safe those Rigs will be, with how [WELL PAID] Inspectors ARE.

IF this nation, (AND the WORLD.), deem that they are going to continue to KILL their FUTURE why must “WE” have to do so like Moriarty to Sherlock… To drain away life by having an intravenous drip “spewing” our fluids, ONE measured drop at a time. Until there’s nothing left.
