Non-Tweets under the Fedora for 12-16-18 Holy Spirit, Twitter, Government, Cleveland Browns and Demands

Pro-​tip for expe­ri­enced Chris­tians, when you declare you are going to leave some­thing for the Holy Spirit to decide said spirit is going to take you seri­ously and make that deci­sion based on his desires not yours. Which is why I didn’t get to sleep in on my only day off this week


For years I’ve been tweet­ing out: A reminder, twit­ter isn’t real life, at This Week they’ve finally dis­cov­ered this but only as a func­tion of try­ing to neu­tral­ize Trump. The irony of course is that President’s use of twit­ter to bypass the press is one of the few real things on twitter.


Have you noticed that for years thinks like run­ning num­bers and deal­ing pot were uni­ver­sally con­demned by gov­ern­ment until they either started run­ning their own gam­bling (lot­ter­ies) or their cronies were giv­ing the rights to sell it (pot)?


If any­one told you before the start of the sea­son that going into Sun­day of week 15 of the NFL sea­son not only would it be impos­si­ble to elim­i­nate the Cleve­land Browns from play­off con­tention but it would take a Pitts­burgh Steel­ers win vs NE to elim­i­nate them from win­ning the divi­sion you’d have been called crazy.


Every week we hear about some pro­fes­sor or some SJW or some batch of stu­dents mak­ing one insane demand or another that peo­ple, for rea­sons I haven’t quite fig­ured out, treat seri­ously. The proper way to treat such demands can be summed up in two steps

  1. Point at them.
  2. Laugh

If I ever have a group try to dis­rupt a speech of mine, I’d call for pop­corn and a chair and point at them and laugh and encour­age the entire audi­ence to do the same.

Have you noticed that for years thinks like running numbers and dealing pot were universally condemned by government until they either started running their own gambling (lotteries) or their cronies were giving the rights to sell it (pot)?


If anyone told you before the start of the season that going into Sunday of week 15 of the NFL season not only would it be impossible to eliminate the Cleveland Browns  from playoff contention but it would take a Pittsburgh Steelers win vs NE to eliminate them from winning the division you’d have been called crazy.


Every week we hear about some professor or some SJW or some batch of students making one insane demand or another that people, for reasons I haven’t quite figured out, treat seriously.  The proper way to treat such demands can be summed up in two steps

  1.  Point at them.
  2.  Laugh

If I ever have a group try to disrupt a speech of mine, I’d call for popcorn and a chair and point at them and laugh and encourage the entire audience to do the same.
