Would You Notice Her Pores?


They say airbrushed models and celebrities are unrealistic, but I think they are more realistic. It is the photograph that is unrealistic to begin with.

We don't usually notice someone's pores when we see them face to face.

When we are in the presence of someone their pores get airbrushed out by the animated spirit of their living existence, which can be unfathomably bright.

That draws our attention, so we don't even notice unimportant details. The camera doesn't see like we see though, and the photograph it produces cannot capture the experience of seeing someone face to face.

Instead the camera brutally captures everything that an eye without a human brain perceives, and conspicuously documents unimportant details. Airbrushing and photo shopping make the photo more like real experience.

Unless you think you'd be noticing this Victoria Secret model's pores if you were face to face with her.

Stupid Democracy, Stupid Media, and Stupid Police


Eric Boehm at Reason: Doug Jones, Roy Moore, and the Politics of the Lesser Evil

"The politics of the lesser evil are very much in vogue right now—though not usually in terms as stark as what we just witnessed in Alabama—because neither major party has much in the way of a compelling vision to win support. Demonizing the other side and hardening tribal lines over issues of race, class, and social policy is, if not the only way to win in that environment, then certainly the easiest. This 'negative partisanship' has infected all parts of the political dynamic, and it's getting worse.

But winning elections isn't supposed to be the goal of politics. Creating policy is. And the politics of the lesser evil are not good for the creation of policy, because whoever wins gains power and therefore quickly becomes the greater evil."


Jeffrey Tucker at FEE: This Bloodsport Needs to End

"The left is getting nuttier, the hard right is getting scarier, and the entire enterprise of political control seems ever more outmoded. Over the last century, we’ve seen these gigantic government institutions with hegemonic power. All that remains is the struggle for who gets to control them and these elections are the public vehicle we’ve traditionally relied upon to render a decision."


Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept: The U.S. Media Suffered Its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages and Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened

"Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, and countless pundits, commentators, and operatives joining the party throughout the day. By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened..."

Philip Giraldi at The Ron Paul Institute:
Why America’s Law Enforcement Empire Resembles Secret Police in a Dictatorship

"Secret police are characteristic of dictatorships, or so goes the conventional thinking on the subject. Police in democracies operate for the most part transparently and within a set of rules and guidelines that limits their ability to gratuitously punish citizens who have done nothing wrong. If a policeman operating under rule-of-law steps out of line, he can be held accountable. That is also conventional thinking.

But what happens when an ostensibly 'democratic' police force becomes corrupted and starts doing things that are outside its zone of responsibility, and does so to benefit a political relationship that will in turn protect those who have broken the law under cover of carrying out their official duties?"

Man and Woman


This Is The Story Of

The Sky
And The
Ground

When They
Were Created

When The GOD
Who Watches
Made The
Ground and
The Sky


And Every Plant,
Before It Was
In The Ground

And Every Flower,
Before It Bloomed




Because GOD
Had Not Sent Rain
To Water The Earth

And There Was Nobody
To Work The Ground

But Moisture Came
Up From The Earth

And Made
The Ground
All Wet


Then GOD Shaped
A Man From The Dust
Of The Ground

And Blew The Breath
Of Life Into His Nose
And The Man Became
A Living Animal


And GOD Had Planted
A Garden in the East

In Eden

And There He Put
The Man He
Had Shaped

And GOD Made All
Kinds of Trees Grow
Out Of The Ground


Trees That
Looked Good
And Gave
Good Food

And The
Tree Of Life
In The
Middle


And The
Tree Of
Knowledge

Of Good
And Evil


A River To
Water The Garden
Flowed Out From
Eden and Was
Parted Into
Four Headwaters


The Long Red Wends
Through Havilah
Where There Is Gold,
Resin, and Onyx


The Nile Circles
Through Kush


The Tigris Moves Along
The East of Assyria


And The Fourth River
Is The Euphrates

And The LORD GOD
Took The Man And
Put Him Into The
Garden To Grow It
And Watch Over It


And The LORD GOD
Told The Man
What To Do

YOU ARE FREE TO
EAT FROM ANY TREE
IN THE GARDEN


BUT YOU OWE IT
NOT TO EAT FROM THE
TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
OF GOOD AND EVIL


BECAUSE THE DAY
YOU EAT FROM IT
YOU WILL SURELY DIE


The LORD GOD Said

IT IS NOT GOOD
FOR THE MAN
TO BE ALONE

I WILL MAKE FOR HIM
A HELPFUL FRIEND


And Out Of The Ground
The LORD GOD Shaped
Every Wild Animal
And Bird In The Sky

And Brought Them To
The Man to See What
He Would Name Them

And However The Man
Called Every Animal
That Was Its Name


And The Man Named
All The Farm Animals,
The Birds in the Sky,
And The Wild Animals.

But No Helpful Friend
Was Found For The Man


So The LORD GOD
Sent A Deep Sleep
To Fall Over The Man

And While He
Was Asleep
GOD Took
One Of The Bones
From The Man's Side
And Closed It Up
With Flesh


And The Rib Which
God Had Taken
From The Man
He Made Into
A Woman

And Presented Her
To The Man


And The Man Said
Wow. This Is Bone
Of My Bones And
Flesh of my Flesh!

She Should Be
Called Woman
Because She Was
Taken Out Of Man


This Is Why A Man
Owes To Leave His
Father and Mother

And Owes To
Join His Wife
And Become
One Flesh

And They Were
Both Naked
The Man
And His Wife

And They Did Not
Cover Themselves


Now The Serpent
Was More Subtle
Than Any of The
Wild Animals The
LORD GOD
Had Made


And He Asked
The Woman

So Did God
Really Say
You Should
Not Eat From
The Trees in
The Garden?


The Woman Said
To The Serpent

We May Eat
The Fruit From
The Trees in
The Garden

But Of The Fruit
From The Tree
In The Middle
of The Garden
God Said


YOU OWE IT NOT
TO EAT OF IT

AND YOU OWE IT
NOT TO TOUCH IT
OR YOU WILL DIE


And The Serpent
Said To The Woman

You Will Not Die
But God Knows That
When You Eat From It
Your Eyes Will Be
Opened And You Will
Be Like Gods and
Know Good and Evil


And When The Woman
Saw That The Tree
Was Good for Food

And Pleasant
To The Eyes

And A Tree
To Be Desired
To Make One Wise


She Took The Fruit
And She Ate Of It

And She Gave Some
To Her Husband
Who Was With Her

And He Ate Too


And Their Eyes
Were Opened

And They Knew
They Were Naked

So They Sewed
Fig Leaves Together
And Made Clothes
For Themselves


And They Heard The
Voice of the LORD GOD
Walking in the Garden
In the Cool of the Day


And The Man
And His Wife
Hid Themselves
From The LORD GOD
Who Was Close By
In The Trees
Of The Garden

And The LORD GOD
Called To The Man
WHERE ARE YOU?


And He Said
I Heard Your Voice
In The Garden and
I Was Afraid Because
I Was Not Covered
So I Hid Myself


And GOD Said
WHO TOLD YOU THAT
YOU WERE NOT COVERED?

HAVE YOU EATEN OF
THE TREE WHEREOF
I SAID YOU OWE IT
NOT TO EAT?


And The Man Said
The Woman You Gave
To Be With Me...

She Gave Me From
The Tree and I Ate


And The LORD GOD
Said To The Woman
WHAT DID YOU DO?

And The
Woman Said
The Serpent
Tricked Me
And I Ate


And The LORD GOD
Said To The Serpent

BECAUSE YOU
DID THIS

YOU WILL
BE HATED
ABOVE ANY
OTHER ANIMAL

ON YOUR BELLY
YOU WILL MOVE

AND DUST YOU
WILL EAT ALL
THE DAYS OF
YOUR LIFE


AND I WILL PUT
FEAR AND HATE
BETWEEN YOU
AND THE WOMAN

AND BETWEEN
YOUR SON
AND HER SON

AND HE WILL
STEP ON YOUR HEAD
AND YOU WILL
STRIKE AT HIS HEEL


And To The
Woman He Said

I WILL WEAVE YOU
A BRAID OF GREAT
WORRY AND SICKNESS
WHEN YOUR SEED
TAKES ROOT IN YOU


AND YOU WILL BE IN
TROUBLE AND PAIN
WHEN YOU
BRING FORTH
CHILDREN

AND YOU WILL
NEED YOUR HUSBAND
AND HE WILL
RULE OVER YOU


And To The
Man He Said

BECAUSE YOU
LISTENED TO
THE VOICE OF
YOUR WIFE

AND ATE OF
THE TREE
OF WHICH I TOLD
YOU NOT TO EAT

YOU WILL HATE
THE GROUND AND
IT IS YOUR FAULT

WITH WORRY
AND PAIN
WILL YOU
EAT FROM IT
ALL THE DAYS
OF YOUR LIFE

THORNS AND WEEDS
WILL IT BRING FORTH
TO YOU AND YOU WILL
EAT THE PLANTS
OF THE FIELD


WITH SWEAT
ON YOUR FACE
WILL YOU EAT
YOUR BREAD

UNTIL YOU
RETURN TO
THE GROUND

BECAUSE OUT
OF THE GROUND
YOU WERE MADE

FOR DUST YOU ARE
AND TO DUST
YOU WILL RETURN


And The Man
Called His Wife's
Name Life
Because She Was
The Mother Of
All The Living

And God Made
Clothes for
The Man and
His Wife out of
Animal Skins and
Covered Them


And The LORD
GOD Said LOOK,
THE MAN
HAS BECOME
LIKE ONE
OF US NOW

AND KNOWS
GOOD FROM EVIL

AND NOW HE MAY
REACH OUT AND TAKE
FROM THE
TREE OF LIFE

AND EAT AND
LIVE FOREVER


So The LORD GOD
Sent Him Out Of
The Garden of Eden
To Work The Ground
Whereof He Was Made


So He Pushed
The Man Out
And To The East
of the
Garden of Eden
He Placed
Winged Horses
Of Awesome Aspect
That Sprinkle Blood


And A Spinning
Sword of Fire
To Block The
Way To The
Tree of Life

Open Your Eyes





It's time to open your eyes, arm yourself, and pay attention.

The only way forward is to marshal overwhelming force in the pursuit of the good.

I was reading a story out of the Book of Genesis when I felt God give me this message.
