Great thread, AG. But emotionally exhausting!

Agreed. My goal with this thread is to provide perspective that, painful as it is, we must never lose sight of what goes on out there day in and day out that is gut wrenching, tragic and downright frightening in it's level of chaos and the apparent mindless anarchy of the human condition.

Throughout all this apparent godless clusterfuck, I see God acting through the biosphere in general and brave people that struggle in the face of adversity in particular. This is inspiring to me. I frankly don't know how they do it because I don't know how I would have the strength to carry on in their shoes.

But somehow, even though tragic failures abound, those victories are real and I see God working in them to show us He cares. And that gives me hope and strengthens my Faith.

As I now pass the 67 year old mark, this passage from the bible that has always been a head scratcher for me is beginning to make more sense.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
Hebrews 11:1
Leges         Sine    Moribus     Vanae   
Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.

This last comment is why I like your work so much, and your overall attitude and approach.

Doing a great job with this page and the cross posting, BTW. I put a LOT of your stuff up on the Book of Faces.

Surly,
Thank you for sharing my zeal to spread hard truths as well as hope, no matter how forlorn that hope may look,

You and I KNOW that hope is out there and it is REAL.

Sam with his loving parents

Doctors Told Sam He Had Until He Was 13. He's Almost 17. Here’s How He's Fighting.


Adam Albright-Hanna

Sam Berns has progeria, a disease which accelerates the body's aging process. A pair of Oscar-winning filmmakers followed him for three years to make what looks like an amazing documentary about his life. "Life According to Sam" airs on HBO starting Monday, Oct. 21.

They Said He Was ‘Evil’ And ‘Bad,’ But He’s Actually Really, Really Astonishingly Good 



When Alonzo Clemons was young, he was sent away to be cared for at an institution. Seems like the staff there had no clue what incredibly beautiful things Alonzo had to share.

In memoriam of an outstanding, brave and resourceful human being. He is an example for all of us of what is possible. A lot of the credit goes to his mother. Ben is in heaven now but there is a special place in heaven for courageous, brave, observant, motivated, tirelessly optimistic and love filled and giving people like his mom.

Terrific video, AG. Another reason for optimism via sustainable living.

Great find. Not the least of which is steam-powered electricity.

Surly,
Glad you liked it. I felt quite peaceful watching it. Up here in Trailer heaven, my front neighbor demolished his trailer in sitio with all that "nice" insulation flying around for us to breathe some fiberglass and the poor squirrels to add to their nests which will sicken them while they breath it. SIGH.... My wife was fit to be tied. I told her it only took a month and the  guy HAS TO bring in a new trailer so that raises the value of our home. The guy is a total nut case. AFTER the place isn't there anymore, he STILL comes by every day and parks near the cement trailer pad slab! WTF??! He had a Marine Corps Flag and a US Flag that he didn't take down until they took that last piece of (I hesitate to call it wood  :P) from his dilapidated POS house. Anyway, he retreated temporarily from the place because it is a bit difficult to live on cement slab and it doesn't look good to be exercising biological functions in plain site.  ;D But the crazy territorial marine is tame compared with the taxi cab driver neighbor to my right. ALL the old beds, bed boards, mattresses, a broken  bicycle, all sorts of particle board furniture left outdoors to rot, pieces of old siding and insulation, a huge punching hanging in the trees for several years now (winter or summer - they never take it down  :P), a moldy basketball, etc. are ALL 'arranged" so the people from the street don't see it too well and WE see the trash every time we go into our yard.

The pile of crap just keeps getting bigger. SIGH... The other three sides of there houses have ZERO trash. These people hate our ****ing guts because we are still here. The silent treatment doesn't work on us and that really ****es them off.

So, about a year ago they began piling more junk on the side of their trailer while we keep ours neat. Meanwhile on the other side, we have a line of milk gallons filled with water on the property line (we aren't allowed to build a fence or grow a hedge - the park rules apply to the spic invaders but NOT to Vermonters, never mind what the law says...). The "gentleman" of advanced years there has a bit of a problem remembering where his yard ends and ours begins. Four years ago we had the park owner, who refused to plant trees on the line after saying she would do it for months,  put a ribbon on the boundary to remind the "gentleman" where his side was. Twice we called the police on him. The cop just talks nice to him and claimed he wasn't breaking the law but warned us no to go in the "gentleman's" yard. My wife put the gallons on the line and the "gentleman", after a few years gave up trying to impinge on our side but HE puts all HIS junk on our side too for us to see. Oh the joys of being persona non grata. But then again, I confess that I really would not like to hang around this pack of troglodytes that surround me either. They are VERY limited people. May God Bless and Keep them AWAY FROM ME and my WIFE. This pack of ignorant bigoted ****s think they are intelligent and resourceful! LOL!

Oh well, that's life. May God help me maintain my composure. You know, I could have helped these neighbors in many areas but, no, I don't qualify for their purebred whiteness and my wife and I are depressing the hell out of them by not leaving after nearly 20 years. No wonder our neighbors are trashing their places like they lived in West Virginia. It's the PITS to have to say your neighbor is PUERTO RICAN. AGH! Their property values are being depressed by my presence. POOR THEM!

Well, there's no problem here hat a firing squad wouldn't cure. If anarchy ever breaks out here, I am toast! My French, German, Spanish and Italian roots don't mean JACK **** to these people. But, whatever, we keep to ourselves. We do what we can. God help us.

I wish a tornado would come through here and clean the place up good and proper. J.C. wasn't kidding when He said, "In the world you will have TRIBULATION". I'm pretty tired of it. Oh well, nothing lasts forever, good or bad, so we'll get through eventually somehow to a better world away from this valley of tears.

On the plus side, while working on all these motions, briefs, allegations, complaints and general written activities to **** off a judge in Puerto Rico, I've picked up on various u-tube "videos"(not) that play all sorts of classical music good for thinking, reading or just relaxing.


Here are some of the links if you want a pleasant auditory experience:

For some clearly misguided reason, I thought that Vermont was different from other places. As you describe above, clearly it is not.

Sorry you are going through this ignorance; because ignorance is what it is.

Did something specific occur to precipitate this run of redneck recklessness? You must live among the only passel of American rednecks without their own reality show on TV right now . . .
