@EdDarrell Family was a oreexisting condition before #ACA. Are you a Poe account? @IamigimomSinger @AbrasiveDavid. PG had heard about Poe’s law recently, but forgot what it was. A consultation with Mr. Google was required. Poe’s Law is “a Christian theological principle that states: “Elements of the Gospel speak to different levels of spiritual concern in different cultures at different times.” It is taught to modern evangelists as a way to better target the message of the Gospel to different audiences for maximum salvific efficacy. The law was named after theologian Dr. Harry Lee Poe, a cousin of Edgar Allan Poe, who promoted the concept in his book “The Gospel and Its Meaning: A Theology for Evangelism and Church Growth.”
Creepy people at Walmart was suggested by a google search of *maximum salvific efficacy*. boner bob, Carrollton, GA, Feb 14, 2012 i just saw a guy jerking off in the grocery isle of walmart not more than 30 min ago. i will never go near the mayonnaise section as long as i live! seen it, United States, Feb 15, 2012 I was in Wally World last week in the early AM and this _____ came in in her PJs and T-shirt looking like she was waiting on her welfare check. I gnored her and chalked her up to Coffee County, then she turned and I saw through the BIG Hole in the PJs one of the finest asses in Ga. She didn’t use her welfare checks for panties, that’s for sure. I was moving closer to check it a little closer when an employee told her and she covered up with a jacket. Good thing she didn’t use her government dollars for bras either. I LOVE me some WalMart Freaks.

The first chore this morning is crunching some tweets by @WernerTwertzog into a poem. The tweetage is being broken into iambic pentameter sections. At some point, these syllable storage units will be matched up with rhymes, the meter adjusted for tonal reality, and assembled into a running order. They will be matched with pictures. If all goes well, this product will be read at an open mic, and the author will not be severely punished.
@WernerTwertzog “God is proof that Schadenfreude does not satiate men’s longing for the suffering of their fellows – such must be eternal.” This is an interesting thought, but it will not work for the proposed poem. One must never use words that they do not know how to pronounce. Besides, I once had a supervisor named Steve Freund. He always told you that Freund means friend in German, and that he was at woodstock.
The page of *matter* is broken into bite size chunks. There are two splendid quotes, which will probably not make it to the final edition. “I can no longer Distinguish among The goatees of NASCAR enthusiasts, Leninists, Nashvillians, Mitch-Millerites, And Satan.” “When dogs drink out of the toilet It is because they are thirsty. When cats drink out of the toilet It is to send a message.”
@WernerTwertzog Everything happens for a reason, And that reason, usually, is our stupidity. @chamblee54 @WernerTwertzog i am working on a sonnet that will be based on your tweets i will suffer irreversible brain damage it will be your fault … Werner Twertzog liked your Tweet
Week 3: Write for 5 right now is a writing contest. They give you two pictures for inspiration, and a five minute time limit for discipline. A pair of jeans, and an umbrella, lay on a park bench. An old lady wears a preposterous hat. Here is what happened in those five minutes:
Maybe if I put this silly hat on I can remember where I left my pants. Why did I get into this situation? If I had worn the hat, I would not have wanted to take the umbrella, except as a fashion statement. This was not a good disguise for a bank robbery.
Even though I could put the loot in my hat, I still would be embarrassed by leaving my pants on a park bench. The umbrella totally does not fit the scheme, either.
What I never told anyone… after I was arrested, read my rights, and booked into jail… was the lottery ticket in the pants pocket. I will never know if it is the winning number. It will be a while before I get out of jail, if I ever do.
Wearing a broad brim straw hat in a serious fashion crime. The bank robbery was a minor matter in comparison. It certainly gives you something to ruffle your eyebrows over, when you are trying to get someone to accept the collect call from the jail.
@Mavorini @chamblee54 Responded to you now on my blog. Gayle on March 12, 2017 at 9:17 am said:Wouldn’t that just be like too many people’s lives? “But, but, but, I left the winning lottery ticket in my pants. Honest, officer!” Thanks for playing, man with bag over your head. I like your line of creative thinking. Remind me to never hire you to carry out a bank heist. Happy Sunday wherever in the world you are. Come back to my blog tomorrow to find out who wins a book. Have a great day. We do this again next Sunday. I hope you’ll come back.
I grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church. Here’s why I left. This is the TED talk promoted in this week’s email. It is the usual TED talk rubbish. A pretty young girl grows up in the Westboro Baptist Church. She engages with her enemy, and sees that they are really nice people. She leaves the church, and lives happily ever after.
PG remembers his experiences with SJW, and aggressive jesus worshipers. If you ask a question, people take that as a cue to deliver an abusive speech. You might look for answers and understanding, only to receive questions and abuse. While the former WBC poster girl… and her ghostwriter … may have met good people on the other side of the battle lines, that is not everyone’s experience.
The Herzog thing is taking too long to come together. PG decides to shift gears. The next poem is going to be from Proverbs 6, verse 15-19. *These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.*
One step in rendering scripture into graphic poems is the elimination of verse numbers. People are so used to a bible with numbered verses that they are surprised to learn that numbered verses were first included in the sixteenth century. ” In 1551, Robert Estienne (a.k.a. Stephanus) added verse divisions to his fourth edition of the Greek New Testament, while en route between Paris and Lyons, France. The first translation to employ his versification was the Geneva translation of 1557 (whole Bible, 1560).” The ten digit system of arabic numbers did not exist when the bible was compiled by the Council of Nicea. The CON was convened in AD 325.

As you have heard a thousand times by now, we are in deep doo doo. After long narcotizing dysfunction will set in, the powers that be will pause, and continue to line their pockets. When every body is crying wolf, the sheep are confused. This is the plan.
If you can’t say anything good, write a poem. The project for today is a companion to #6WordFortuneCookieAnswers. Some twitterbird started a hashtag, PG copied the results, and a poem was born. The original was 20 lines, which was split in half. Today’s effort is part two.
@BernieSanders We should be looking for guidance now not from pollsters and political consultants, but from leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. @chamblee54 @BernieSanders please take your own advice and shut up you have caused enough damage @commonsense quit looking at twitter and get to work.

This project may be more work than anticipated. There are few unused folders. The next step is to go into the archives. The folders from 2013 have been little used. The first one to try is a cemetery collection. The first picture went smoothly, but number two is proving troublesome.
The first podcast is a New Yorker story, David Gilbert Reads “Underground”. It is about a New Yorker. He fusses with his bf, has lunch with his mother, and picks up his twin daughters at school. While in the subway station, a homeless man jumps on the train tracks. The hero lives a life that connects to PG at a few points, but overall seems like science fiction.
Today is a good day for podcasts. There are new episodes from You Must Remember This,
Sex with Strangers, and RISK. “Southern Folk: Donna Edwards, Dave Kendall and Randall Robinson share stories of growing up down South.”
Yesterday, the guest on WTF was Robbie Robertson. The Band had always seemed a bit public radio, but Mr. Robertson told a different story. The Hawks were a “other side of the tracks” juke joint band, before they met Bob Dylan. They were a typical band, with heroin, and fights over royalties.
@ChrisCrocker Do not describe people of the Alt-Right as “eccentric” My public hair is eccentric.Call a fucking Nazi a fucking Nazi.@chamblee54 alt-right is a bunch of losers in mom’s basement third Reich would laugh at them calling them fucking nazis is a compliment
More pictures are working. Progress is being made. Sex with Strangers, is the current podcast. This show is titled “War on Porn.” It is about straight, commercial porn. When a performer tests HIV+, the industry shuts down until it is resolved. The last episode of industry related HIV transmission was 2004. The rest of the show deals primarily with a digital content law in the UK, which will largely ban adult content from the island.
The picture is finished now, and posted above. Other than making a tacky picture, there were relatively few interruptions. Before leaving, there is a story to be told.
In 1966, PG’s dad won a tv in a contest. It was black and white, about 19″ diagonally, and had UHF channels… a first for PG. At the time, channel 30 was the only UHF station in Atlanta. About a year later, PG got home from school, and turned the tv to channel 17. At four o’clock, a commercial from an ad agency played, followed by a movie, “Della.” It would be a few years before billboard company owner Ted Turner bought channel 17.
Getting back to that sunday afternoon when a new tv arrived. This was the first season for the Atlanta Falcons. That sunday afternoon, they played the Packers in Green Bay. This team was coached by Vince Lombardi, and was on track to win the first NFL-AFL championship, later known as the Super Bowl. The Packers beat the Falcons 56-3. A few weeks later, the Falcons beat the N.Y. Giants, in the original Yankee Stadium. It was the first victory for the Falcons.

Richard Spencer was not well known before Inauguration day. He was an alt-right star, who made noise about white nationalism. Mr. Spencer became a national celebrity when he was sucker punched during an interview. Many people label Mr.Spencer “nazi,” and say he deserved it.
@machinegunkelly I’m super proud of all my friends walking in the women’s march today. also proud of whoever punched Richard Spencer in the face
@rembert the coward who punched richard spencer needs to come forward and apologize for cutting me in line
@ItsTonyNow the Nazis who spent all year threatening to put people in ovens are now extremely triggered by Richard Spencer getting laid out
@catchdini “Punch them” is, like, Nazi 101, I don’t see the problem here
@KaraCalavera Who said punching Nazis is wrong? Punching Nazis is the most ‘Murican thing one can do. Captain America does it!
facebook: I think punching that nazi was the wrong approach. Should came at him face first with a baseball bat (15 like, 2 love, 1 ha ha)
Fuck Racism, Nazi’s get punched. I thought the picture of Richard Spencer getting punched would make a good hardcore band style shirt.
@20committee Two months ago, Richard Spencer had trouble getting 200 people to attend his “big” DC event. Now he’s a celebrity. Way to go, antifa!
Many onlookers use “nazi” as a label for Mr. Spencer. Apparently, nazis are so odious that public assault is encouraged. (Mr. Spencer “says he is not a Nazi. In an interview on Saturday, he said he was a member of the alt-right, which he calls “identity politics for white Americans and for Europeans around the world.”) The term nazi is usually used to refer to the Nationalist Socialist party, of Third Reich Germany. These “real” nazis were not people that you should mess with. If you hit one in the face, you would probably get a bullet in return. Calling Richard Spencer nazi is a bit of a stretch.
PG saw this, and was horrified. If it is ok to punch nazis today, who is the target tomorrow? Are we a civilized people, or have we descended to the level of der fuhrer? Internet logic (oxymoron alert) did not take kindly to this. @chamblee54 #RichardSpencer it is now OK to hit someone because you disagree with them we are less civilized than we were before @adamd243 Punching Nazis is how we saved civilization before, buddy.
A facebook friend was disturbed by the spectacle. In the comments, someone went full Godwin and produced an alleged Hitler quote. ““Only one thing could have stopped us – if our adversaries had, from the first day, smashed with the utmost brutality the nucleus of our movement.” A reddit thread comes to the consensus that the quote is fake. There was a lovely comment: “I doubt anyone has any real evidence whether he said it or not. Probably not worth taking seriously. If someone has a good point to make, they can make it without quoting historical figures.”
Twitter had a link to an essay, When You Punch A Nazi In The Face, You Punch Me In The Face. The essay said many of the things PG felt. We are a civilized people. When you hit one person, you are also hitting me. The essay was great, until you got to the last line. “Gawken is a satirical publication.”
Some times you just want to give up. Pictures for this commentary on internet badassery are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”.
