Real Self-Help

I opened my paper today to see that Pat Robertson was quoted as saying that he believes our country is headed for "socialism" but that in the second half of Obama's term we can expect a "rebound," it will be like the New Deal. Yes, Robertson is back with his annual prediction for the coming year. What gets me is that the news story actually noted that Robertson's predictions for the past year were more or less accurate! Like he's some kind of prophet, or something! For 2008, he had predicted a U.S. recession, widespread bloodshed in the world, and oil hitting 150 a barrel. He also claimed to have predicted who would win the vote for President, but didn't want to say anything! Uh-huh.

My question is: Who in the hell couldn't have predicted those things for last year?! I mean, at least in a general way like he did. Why are we even giving one iota of credence to what this turd says?! He is a world class creep, in my book. I hate the way, on his show, he has a story of someone whose life was a mess because of drugs, or they were sick, and now that they have come to the Lord, just because they caught His message on the 700 Club, they have recovered, or they are healed! But don't forget-Pat says, you need to contribute $-lots of it-to keep this type of ministry going! Wanna see that lady get her cancer cured-send some money! If you want that drug abuser to see "the light," send-you got it-money! If you want Robertson's book about whatever he thinks he's an expert on, you need to make 4 easy payments of 39.95! I think Robertson is a charlatan. He preys on people's empathy, beliefs and devotion to get the money that he uses for...well, who knows what!
*I finally found a video with Robertson's 2009 predictions-on YT they were mislabeled "Pat Roberts 2009 Predictions"! I am surprised that he didn't ask for $ from his congregation for making these "predictions"!

I have been into the "how to" videos on YT and other sites-some of them are just unbelievable! Why people would need a video to explain nose hair plucking is beyond me! And the air guitar thing? Why?! How is this such a big thing?! As a guitarist, this is just going way too far! Rockband and Guitar Hero I know, are really popular-(I don't get it, but-ok)but air guitar championships!?

WTF?! Video Presents:

I wish you all happy new year! *UPDATE: I fixed that Top Gear/Rednecks video clip Don't mess with the South/Phony phone conversations that I had submitted for Jon Swift's BBP of 2008! I should have checked all the links when Jon posted the BBP feature. It got pulled due to "copyright violation"! I couldn't embed the clip (at least not the version I wanted) I tell you what! I am getting so sick of having these great video clips yanked because the studios/production companies, whatever- are upset that people are viewing a 5 minute streaming clip and they're not getting every stinking penny they can get for it! I think that is the most ridiculous crap! Greedy bastards!

These here two videos make me think: What the F%$#!?

Jon Swift's Best Blog Posts of 2008 CBTBT

Last year, I had the honor and pleasure of being asked to submit a post for Jon Swift's Best Blog Posts of 2007-Chosen By The Bloggers Themselves. Jon Swift: Best Blog Posts of 2007 (Chosen by the Bloggers Themselves) That post, Don't mess with the South/Phony phone conversations which had a clip of the Top Gear guys messing with some rednecks in some sort of crazy competition, and Eugene Mirman's recordings of his hilarious phone calls with telemarketers from a homophobic, evangelical Christian long distance company, (the original Top Gear clip was changed to a longer, actually better clip, and the Mirman Mp3's are now "video clips"*A guy named Johnxrox http://www.youtube.com/user/Johnxrox made the clips-he loves Eugene also! Check out his YT channel-it's cool!) got me a lot of attention! It was nice!
What was really cool was getting to see other posts from bloggers I had never heard of or who I had been meaning to read but hadn't gotten around to it! Some of the stuff that I read was some of the best blog reading I have seen in a long time! I guess that's why its called "The Best Blog Posts..!

Well, this year I have been asked to be in Jon's BBP again! Jon Swift: Best Blog Posts of 2008 (Chosen by the Bloggers Themselves) I would like to ask that even if you've already seen my post(s) about Jerome Corsi's stinkin' book/banishment from Kenya, that you please check out the other blogger's posts, which again promise to be outstanding! Please don't forget to check out Jon's post at the end of this year's feature!

I want to thank Jon Swift for again asking me to be a part of this! It must have been a lot of work to get all these posts together in his own inimitable fashion! Thanks again for all your hard work on this! You did a heckuva job!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I am going to do some heavy reading!
