Video Documentary: The Real Difference
Between Liberals and Conservatives

In this illuminating short documentary
psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the moral values
which divide liberals and conservatives

The Daily Walk with Miracles, August 20, 2014, documentary choice by Paul Evans and video courtesy of TED, Jonathan Haidt and YouTube:

Psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the five moral values that form the basis of our political choices, whether we’re left, right or center. In this eye-opening talk, he pinpoints the moral values that liberals and conservatives tend to honor most.

Paul Evans: These psychologists and psychologists are people I think of in a sort of schizoid way. On the one hand, I strongly feel that I was misdiagnosed back in 1978 and that this has carried on ever since. About ten years ago, my psychiatrist must have wondered, because he ordered a brain MRI for me. The brain MRI is NORMAL, not that of a schizophrenic man at all, which is the conventional diagnosis that has been carried on all these years. It does seem that all the mental illness meds — basically barbituates — do seem to slow my brain down to just the right level, so although the diagnosis is incorrect, the medicines I am taking are in fact working, just for the wrong condition. But so far as I would guess, I am taking at least twice as much of the one kind that I need, along with a bipolar medicine, and that these two have caused me to be badly sedated and gain 30 pounds, so that they are just wrong. The Resperidal is in fact just right for me, but I need it in about twice the strength I am on, because it strengthens my mind and helps me think clearly. Call that an informed guess. If these psychologists and psychiatrists are genuinely worried about evil in my life, give me the drug that strengthens my mind to fight it, right? Not the two that befuddle me and hurt my body. These people see me for 15 minutes every other month. I have to LIVE with what they are prescribing, which seems quite wrong to me.

I also take Cogentin, which is supposed to allow me to tolerate the other medicines better. Apparently there is some reason that I can’t simply take Benedryl in its place, since Benedryl, the antihistamine, dries me out and also sedates me, so that I could take it at night, to get to sleep. But apparently, I have been told, there is some reason, that I don’t understand, why the Benedryl won’t do the job right. But then, why not straight Phenobarbital, which in fact I tried after a dog I owned needed it. I found it In a bottle which had been labeled by my sister and I didn’t know where it came from, but knew I had a month until I could see my psychiatrist and that they wouldn’t prescribe it for me unless I got seen. It worked then, I slept really well but was in no way overmedicated on any psych drugs. Why wouldn’t this work? At least it wouldn’t be destroying my body.

Isn’t the above reasoning just basic logic about the situation in which I find myself? Would someone, if they disagree with me, please tell me what is wrong with my logic and where I am wrong?

In this video, I can’t remember it too well, but I bet Mr. or Dr. Haidt calls strong religious belief a conservative value. That’s just wrong. I am not myself liberal but think of myself as nonpartisan. I don’t get involved in partisan activism any more, because I am just trying to live my life and not offend the powers that be. But this idea that liberals cannot have strong Christian beliefs is absolutely, positively wrong. I thought of myself as liberal for many years, and I know that everyone’s judgment against me that I was not Christian because I was a liberal was just one more thing that hurt me badly in life.

Helpful Information: Shareable and Share or Die

It’s a way to survive for some of us
And for the rest of us it’s the path to a better life and future

Paul Evans Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 19, 2014, published May 7, 2013, Two Press Releases by Shareable.net and the new book “Share or Die,” compiled and with commentary by Paul Evans with the assistance of Katie O’Hara:

Comment by Paul Evans: Shareable.net may be one of the best new ideas on the web. It’s a website geared to young adults, for example those who might be trying to enter the job market, or start out life independently, away from their parents. But it’s also a blueprint for a better life. Don’t get me wrong, almost anyone can benefit by visiting Shareable.net, with its very professional design and great articles, which are mainly about living a lifestyle sustained by sharing. And it has a lot of great resources and ideas. It’s a website about trying to build a new lifestyle to get by in an age where jobs are scarce and good jobs even more scarce, with surging inequality, a stagnant minimum wage and rising living costs.

Shareable describes their ideas and purpose: "In a shareable world, things like car sharing, clothing swaps, childcare coops, potlucks, and co-housing make life more fun, green, and affordable. When we share, not only is a better life possible, but so is a better world.

"The remarkable successes of sharing projects like Zipcar, Wikipedia, Freecycle, Kiva, and Creative Commons show this. They tell a hopeful story about human nature and our future, one we don’t hear enough in the mainstream media."

Shareable is featuring a new book, called Share or Die. Neal Gorenflo, one of the co-founders of Shareable.net, is the co-editor of “Share or Die,” which is a collection of 25 “stories.” To quote the Press Release for the book:

Share or Die is an anthology with stories by an astonishing variety of recent graduates and twenty-something experimenters who are finding (and sharing) their own answers to negotiating the new economic order. It contains 25 articles with hands-on, practical advice about career, relationships, travel, education, housing, and volunteering.

Shareable offers the book for free online here under a Creative Commons license. There is also a paperback version at Amazon.com.

One of the best introductions I read about “Share or Die” on the Press Release website is from the Editor’s Preface. I am going to give a lengthy excerpt from the Preface. It gave me the best ideas on the whole concept of living a sharing sort of life, as a strategy in life, personally, and for society and the world’s future:

About six months ago, a weather-beaten, middle-age man asked me for money on the platform of the Mountain View Caltrain station.

I gave him three dollars. He thanked me, and asked what I did for work. I introduced myself, learned his name (Jeff) and we shook hands. I pulled out a card from my computer bag, and handed it to him as I told him that I publish an online magazine about sharing.

Jeff lit up, “Oh I get that, when you’re homeless, it’s share or die.”

That got my attention and I asked him to explain. Jeff said that a year earlier, his girlfriend drank herself to death alone in a motel room. He said she wouldn’t have died had someone been with her. For him, isolation meant death.

Jeff explained his perspective further, that he had no problem giving his last dollar or cigarette to a friend, that it comes back when you need it. But there are those that just take. You stay away from them.

I asked him about the homeless in Mountain View, which is in the middle of prosperous Silicon Valley. Jeff said there are 800 homeless people in the city, and that each has a similar story.

That conversation got under my skin. I shared it with Malcolm Harris the next day on a call about this book. Half-joking, I suggested Jeff’s phrase, “share or die,” as a title. At the time, I thought it was over-the-top. I wasn’t serious. But, thankfully, Malcolm began using it in correspondence about the book. It stuck.

My conversation with Jeff marked a turning point in my thinking. I had thought of sharing as merely smart because it creates positive social, environmental, and economic change through one strategy.

But Jeff’s story and the directness of his phrase – share or die – broke through my intellectualization of sharing. Jeff helped me see something that I was blind to, even though I knew all the facts – that sharing is not just a smart strategy, it’s necessary for our survival as a species. This has always been so, but today our condition is especially acute – we’re using 50 percent more natural resources per year than the earth can replace. And global population and per capita consumption are growing. It’s now glaringly obvious to me that we need to learn to share on a global scale fast, or die.

But the threat is not only one of biological death. Those like me, who are in no danger of starving, face a spiritual death when we act as if well-being is a private affair and gate ourselves off from the rest of humanity with money and property. We can neither survive nor live well unless we share. It’s my outrageous hope that the young voices in this book do for a generation what Jeff did for me – wakes them to the idea that sharing can save them and the world.

In higher education, the U.S. has been outpaced internationally. In 1990, the U.S. ranked first in the world in four-year degree attainment among 25-34 year olds; today, the U.S. ranks 12th. We also suffer from a college attainment gap, as high school graduates from the wealthiest families in our nation are almost certain to continue on to higher education, while just over half of our high school graduates in the poorest quarter of families attend college. And while more than half of college students graduate within six years, the completion rate for low-income students is around 25 percent.

The Truth About Aliens & UFO’s: The Disclosure Project

The Truth About Aliens & UFO’s:
The Disclosure Project

Is a Leader of The Disclosure Project Also
The Head of an Atlantean Society?

   

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 19, 2014, published August 7, 2014, video of Alan Parsons Project performing “Sirius-Eye in the Sky” courtesy of pleyadesx and YouTube:

There are some things that Google is unlikely to tell you: that’s why you come to The Daily Walk with Miracles! [And the Library of Congress is not mentioned (as such) in the Bible.]

I was introduced to www.disclosureproject.org about 2006 or 2007. I was so impressed with what was at their site that I bought their four hour DVD on just what the evidence is for UFO’s and aliens. A less expensive two hour DVD is also available:

From the Disclosure Project:

"The Disclosure Project is a research project working to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems. We have over 500 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses testifying to their direct, personal, first hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information secret."

These people have briefed the President, Congress and even the Defense Department. Apparently the people who run The Disclosure project are so “wired in” to what’s happening that the Department of Defense found some need to allow them to brief the DOD. Or so it would seem. That might account for why their website is up and running OK ever since at least the beginning of 2007. I believe that the website is English in the location where the website host is located.

beautiful but rather dark photograph of candles floating on water with flames that actually move

This leads me to the answer as to exactly why we have not been back to the moon since 1969. Imagine how much more advanced our computers and our technology in general has become since 1969, but we have never gone back since the Apollo days. The answer must be that we got there, found that there was already someone there, got warned off, and knew really strongly that we would never, at least so far, without permission, try going to the moon again.

At the website you will also find the documents of the official briefing of President Obama. There are also other materials available that I am not comfortable discussing, and which you should feel that you utilize or talk about at your own risk. I’ve learned my own lessons as a website/blog owner. I push the boundaries enough. When there is a White House Press briefing I will disclose and discuss more, but not until then. Officially the U.S. government has only now admitted to even the existence of Area 51, which is a joke among geeks.

For this article to have any effect on world events, you’d have to believe that aliens as in UFO’s were even real, wouldn’t you? Feeling lucky, Iran?

If you investigate the links provided with this article, you will see that the aliens worship light (and thus love), too. It sure seems to me that the Disclosure Project people do. In about late 2006, as a perfect innocent amidst the intrigue and dangers surrounding this topic, I became a member of an Atlantean society which I found in a Google search. This was not an inconsiderable bunch, because at that time they had had considerably over one million page views. What is REALLY noteworthy is that some high up person in The Disclosure Project is also the number one person — the head — of this Atlantean society. This makes any claims as to the loyalties of the aliens made by the Disclosure Project completely suspect, and possibly even false.

In terms of those who are agnostics or God forbid, atheists in this life, believe me, the aliens are still very, very real. To an agnostic, death would mean just death, that would be that. For those with faith, and this includes the aliens, with their young ones, too, death means eternal salvation in Paradise, or heaven. To that I would add “drive carefully, and take care of the body that God gave you.” God knows that we want a good life here on earth, with our loved ones, before the question of heaven or hell arises, and he wants for us only a future of love and light, so of course, God just wants us to be happy. Didn’t Jesus promise us, that as true believers, we would never know death? So then, to summarize, know that God is real, the aliens are real, life on earth and in the universe are very, very real, and you should really have faith in the Holy God of Israel.

If I were mankind I would back off any ideas I had of militarizing space. China, this means you, too. Iran, you would be insane to challenge these aliens. I don’t know about you, but I’m only just a messenger, I’m expendable, and God can make true Hebrews out of stones, as it is written. Jesus may have a pedigree that matters to God, but really, if you think about it, it is basic simple logic that each of us is about equally related to everyone else. It doesn’t matter to me who I am so long as I can help people and worship God.

Just because “you don’t want to hear it” doesn’t make all this any less true. Jesus’ kingdom is a secret kingdom, but we are now bringing you the truth, and we are challenging you to share this truth with everyone you know, friends and contacts. Tell everyone!

Neocons, (tbe truly evil neocons, that is), who want still to end everything, to end life as we know it on earth, I hope and pray to God you will see the error of your ways. Maybe you could still somehow do it, maybe not: the forces aligned against you are much more formidable than you can possibly know, no matter what you think. It is a question of mass self-hypnosis. You are all hypnotized, even the neocon leaders who think themselves very conscious, but you are not. The one question you cannot answer to me: WHY does it have to be that way. What exactly do you gain from an end to your own lives? Yes, you have suffered so very much, but so has, in reality, everyone else.

The Buddha found out, after 20 years of contemplating suffering sitting there, that thinking about your own suffering is the wrong approach altogether. EVERYONE has happy times in their lives. Contemplate THOSE times, think on happy thoughts, or think about that next girlfriend or just friend you are going to have, everyone has happy memories from some time in their past, but then, make a happy, nice future for yourselves. Within reason, you know, whatever turns you on! Power and money won’t do it altogether, I can tell you, it’s the simple things, the basic things, that make for happy memories and lives. Yet if those things are what you like, so be it: go for it, just don’t end it all for yourselves and everyone else! Be happy. Why don’t you try to be happy, instead of blowing up everything. Would not the aggrandizement of American wealth and power be a much more enjoyable fact to contemplate and enjoy? Liberals and the more righteous among us could contemplate the spread of American democracy and freedom.

Humanistic Psychology: a Third Force

Be careful, prepared, cautious,
But fully open and honest
(it may be necessary rarely to lie)

Just be yourself and be loving!
If people started doing this, the whole world would be changed.
TELL EVERYBODY!

   

The Daily Walk with Miracles, August 18, 2014, video selection by Paul Evans. It is my strong wish for articles like this that I hope mean something, that I am plagiarized (don’t laugh, I’m quite serious), take all of this article, and please share it with your social circles, friends and contacts. All of my articles should be considered public domain unless otherwise stated, however backlinks are much appreciated:

This website is Christian, but I fully agree with the video, and have no problems agreeing with it. Overall, while the whole text here may be a bit selfish, I know in my heart that it must speak to a whole lot of people just like me. How do we approach psychoanalysis and what is the best way to approach thinking about ourselves and the world around us? I have tried Jungian analysis. I never felt that Freudian analysis resonated all that well with me. The later ideas of cognitive behavioralism seemed only OK, though I felt there is a lot to learn from them, and I enjoyed many of Jung’s ideas as well. But Self actualization from pure humanistic analysis (the Third Force they are talking about) resonates very strongly with me. I don’t think we need to deviate far from this at all to be happy, individually, in this life we are given. I also think that if society were exposed to these ideas and took them to heart, the world would be a much better place.

My Own Truth About
Psychoanalysis and Love

People say, “you have to love yourself, first.” OK, fine, but I tried for 35 years to simply find one girl/woman who would offer to me faithful, honest, real, affectionate love, and no matter how hard I tried, this was denied me. I do love myself, and I AM basically happy working on this website. So where is my life’s love? I guess I need to put this in God’s hands and leave this to Him.

“Where there is injustice for one of us, there is injustice for all of us.” — paraphrase of special quote I have come to especially like by the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

To me, in my life and a few ladies’ lives I believe I touched deeply, I need to say, I’m sorry Sherri. I’m sorry Nancy. I’m sorry Cindy. I’m sorry to Shannon, too. I’m also sorry to Sandy. There have been others. I was an assh*le, with some of you. With others, you never gave me a chance. But I would have been true and deep down in your hearts, you know it.

I have such an advantage over the average person on the streets with this website, which gives me a somewhat widespread voice. Still I am compelled to try: Ladies, should any one of you, anyone anywhere want a caring, kind and very loving man, I’m right here. My Outlook email is evans.paul1957 AT outlook.com. My Yahoo IM username is evansp66 AT yahoo.com. Nothing is stopping you from getting in touch, or chatting. How stupid is this life, sometimes. Yet I’m still real grateful I’m alive. Somehow, I remain coherent, if not so terribly sane all the time. And I hope I will still help people and serve God with this website, for a long, long time.

Official Music Video
w/ T.I. featuring Angaleena Presley

Yeah, that’s what I’m about!
Caring as an Active Verb and in my Heart.
Shouldn’t Congress & Everyone Else be About Caring Too?

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 17, 2014, July 20, 2014; July 6, 2014 and May 25, 2014; previously published April 17, 2014, by Paul Evans: This is for my true friends, Paul Yuhanick, and his family: Dan, Daniel, his wife, Tammy, Chris, David, as well as Bert, The guys who eat breakfast at Trinity United Church of Christ and my pastor there, Rev. Dr. Kevan Franklin, and all my readers – Welcome to the New Age! Mankind has put so much radioactivity, toxic chemicals and genetically engineered foods into the environment that only God knows where it will lead: That IS the New Age. Dedicated to my friend Shay – be blessed by God , believe and have a wonderful life, Shay. Sometimes you have to just move on.

I’m nobody really, fairly ordinary, though blessed with many advantages in life that I am grateful for. “To him to whom much is given, much is expected,” said my dad, Dr. Jack E. Evans, Ph.D., R.I.P. Kid Rock’s “CARE” is the official video of The Daily Walk with Miracles, if that’s OK with Kid Rock!

I do know Jesus loves me, and that’s all I’ll ever need. I’m just a schmuck, and a schlemazel, and a little bit of a schlemiel, too. I’m just ‘working out my salvation in fear and trembling’ like anyone else. It is normal and wise to fear the Lord, but as for the world, fear is our enemy. Fear what the powers that be use against us, to control us. As FDR said, "all we have to fear is, fear itself.” The great weapon we have against fear is the strength of our faith in God and Jesus.

There is one further way I might be able to help Christians with the words of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew – 10:16. See Bible Hub, which I highly recommend to you. In the King James Bible this verse reads "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." This can be a hard thing to do, since there is so much evil in the world. Mainly, just keep your mouths shut in the world, but if asked, proclaim your faith boldly. Do not lose your caring innocence but realize that you are among evil wolves and act accordingly.

I just know what I know when I know it and work hard in service to Jesus and God. But this video speaks to me so very strongly about what it’s all about, Caring, as an active verb and as a feeling we should all have deep in our heart. God Bless you all!

Men and Women wiser than I am might well want to study my recent idea for changing the way things are, and are wrong, in the world. My idea is to simply, honestly and caringly TALK to everyone about what is REALLY true in the world, and the way the universe REALLY works, and is set up by God, with love in our hearts and no guile or deception at all. I tried that and ended up in a mental hospital. But at least talk to your friends and loved ones who have it wrong, and there is this whole new factor in the world, the internet. So talk about the truth on the internet. Tell the truth on Facebook, for example, with love and fearlessness. You are right, if one person does this they will only be persecuted badly, I know. But what if one hundred did it. I believe that then the world would be changed. Yet money would still be money and power would still be power, and change would happen to some extent only as fast as they were willing for it to change. I think most of these men are to some extent Christian men anyway. Furthermore, I don’t even believe that money is the root of all evil, but rather selfishness about money So give God his ten percent cut, at the least, (tithing), and we can all live happier lives. That’s what we all want, isn’t it, to be happy?

Rock Music Videos That Make You Think
Some Favorite Alan Parsons Project Music

“Eye in the Sky” is the song people may have heard on the radio.
My favorite is "La Sagrada Familia". These are all personal favorite music.
See if you can follow the rhythms in "I Robot".

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 17, 2014, published August 10, 2014, selections by Paul Evans, videos courtesy of YouTube:

Listen to the almost impossible rhythms of ‘I Robot’ and you will see why I have loved The Alan Parsons Project for decades (at the least since 1978, although I was introduced to the group in 1975, on ‘senior skip day’). ‘La Sagrada Familia’ is one of my very favorite songs ever. ‘Don’t Answer Me’ speaks to the frustration many of us feel, while ‘Sirius/Eye in the Sky’ is the hit song you hear most often still played a lot on the radio. Don’t you think that maybe the ‘Eye in the Sky’ is really our God? And maybe that’s the eye in the top of those pyramids on the dollar bill, too. Same sort of idea, anyway.

For a while The Daily Walk with Miracles took a jog to the right, politically, just as before we had been pretty progressive. Now we pride ourselves on telling the truth as a nonpartisan website, following the truth, wherever it might lead:

Note by Paul Evans: May Day: originating with ancient Rome and Germanic paganism, May Day Really has nothing much to do with labor’s struggle. For more, see the Wikipedia article on May Day.

(The painting is called “Unveiling the Statue of Liberty.” It was painted in 1886 by Edward Moran, and is courtesy of Wikipedia.)

“Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
Hearts starve as well as bodies, give us bread, but give us roses!”
–From a poem by James Oppenheim

Bread and roses. It was the battle cry of the thousands of striking women and their supporters who marched through the streets of Lawrence, Massachusetts, in 1912, in the heart of the textile industry. Although it’s been 100 years since they marched, their militancy and bravery remain among the brightest highlights in the long history of the American labor movement.

famous painting by Edward Moran from 1886 called 'Unveiling the Statue of Liberty' from Wikipedia

The three-months long strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts, led by the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) pitted the 25,000 workers – half of them women under 20, many as young as 14 – against the violently anti-labor textile mill owners, who were strongly backed by the press, politicians , school officials and clergy.

Striking was difficult for the workers, who had only their poverty-level wages to live on. They had barely enough to pay the rent for the run-down, disease-ridden shacks and tenement flats where most of them lived. Many were constantly in debt, having to borrow money to meet their bare necessities. Health care and other fringe benefits were virtually unheard of, and more than one-third of the workers died in their mid-twenties.

Working conditions were brutal. They commonly worked 12 hours a day in the hot, dusty and dangerous textile mills for but $6 to $8 a week. The workers had neither the leisure time nor the means to improve the quality of their lives, no time or money to enjoy the good things of life – the roses.

They desperately needed the help that unionization could provide them, but that could come only through a strike that would impose even more hardships on the already extremely hard-hit workers. They hesitated about actually walking off the job, but finally were convinced that striking would bring long-term benefits to them, their families and their communities.

The mill workers moved into action after employers unilaterally cut their already rock-bottom pay even more. They marched to the mills and throughout Lawrence to the tune of militant labor songs by IWW bard Joe Hill and others, holding high placards that declared ,”We Want Bread and Roses too,” a demand that soon would be taken up by labor and feminist groups nationwide.

It wasn’t easy, bringing the workers together. They belonged to two-dozen different national groups, speaking 72 languages. They had been purposely kept apart by employers, who kept them in ghettoes by setting up separate housing areas for different nationalities, lest they forget their ethnic differences and join together to challenge their miserable pay and unhealthy conditions.

Employers got their friends in City Hall to enact an ordinance preventing strikers from picketing individual mills, but strikers responded by the extraordinary act of forming a picket line around the perimeters of the entire textile mill district. Thousands of pickets were on the line 24 hours a day throughout the 10-week-long strike.

Some spent part of their evenings hoping to disturb the sleep of strikebreakers who employers had hired to replace them, loudly serenading them with IWW songs.

Thousands paraded through the streets of Lawrence regularly, until the city enacted an ordinance forbidding parades and mass meetings. They switched to sidewalk parades of up to four-dozen strikers and supporters, who locked arms, blocking shoppers and others from entering downtown businesses.

Eventually, martial law was declared, enforced by violent police and militiamen, who charged in to try to break up the marches and other demonstrations. They even tried to block strikers from putting their children on trains that would take them to safety with sympathizers in other cities. The city called in the Army to block the trains from moving, which led to the killing of a woman striker and the beating of many others, including several children and two pregnant women who had miscarriages.

Then the authorities arrested two of the IWW’s principal leaders for murder, on grounds that their illegal acts had provoked police into the action that led them to kill a striker.

The widespread publicity about the strike finally helped pressure employers to settle. The terms were modest, primarily granting the workers union recognition, a 15 percent pay increase and a 54-hour workweek with overtime pay at double the regular rate. But the mere recognition of the workers’ right to make and be granted any demands was crucial. It inspired many other workers, especially women, to also assert their basic rights and brought strong support nationally for many workers who sought decent treatment.

What’s more, many textile mill owners, fearing they also might be struck, granted pay raises totaling almost $15 million to an estimated 438,000 workers throughout New England and elsewhere.

A much longer and lasting result was that the strike put the needs of working women on labor’s agenda for the first time and showed that women could very well provide decisive leadership and indeed win bread – and roses.

Comment by Paul Evans: Writer-Activists like Dick Meister bring into the open just how much the current lifestyles of America’s ordinary workers owe to our predecessors, such as those who struggled in the textile industry in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The climate in congress is very much anti-labor. About the only major labor forces left in this nation are the AFL-CIO and public unions, such as the teachers unions. In right wing states, there is a strong push to eliminate them from the whole picture or else greatly reduce their power. The real reason for this is that these people support Democrats.

The climate in congress is all for cutting entitlements, also. Though various bills have been introduced which have come closer to providing a decent, living wage for ordinary Americans, this legislation went nowhere. If you are realistic, you can see that we will not, under the current political and economic regime, get a living wage passed at all, and that people will be lucky to hold onto what they have now. Yet the Republicans in the House are determined to slash entitlements, and according to what has already been agreed upon, food stamps will be about cut in half over the next ten years. This is immoral and unchristian. The very least we can do for the working man, if we are not going to provide him with a decent living wage, is to give him enough food to eat. Most working people live near the minimum wage and are dependent on entitlements to provide them with the help they need to live. Couldn’t we at the very least provide them with enough food to eat?

America’s Wrong-mindedness About Addiction (and Politics), and Pride in the Name of Love

The Daily Walk with Miracles celebrates over one year on the internet as your Christian, truthful and independent conservative news and inspiration provider

August 16, 2014

The Best Christian News and Politics Blog:
*Christian *Truthful*Nonpartisan* Independent*

America’s Wrong-mindedness
About Addiction (and Politics)
and Pride in the Name of Love

Rx: Be Careful, Get Enough Sleep,
Love One Another, Speak the Truth Fearlessly.
Don’t Lie Even to Yourself, and Don’t Judge People!

With an Important Message on Addiction in Society:
For Addicts Everywhere

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 16, 2015 and July 31, 2014, republished with rewrite and editing April 24, 2014, fully revised and updated October 2 and 3, 2013, revised and updated March 27 and March 31, 2011, originally published November 27, 2010 under the title, “(The Reason For) Evans Liberal Politics is ‘Pride in the Name of Love’,” by Paul Evans. Placed in the Public Domain. Photograph of 50 famous marijuana smokers courtesy of Common Dreams, music video "Grace" courtesy of U2, YouTube and Dick Davies. Some of the links in this article may not work (you would probably get a 404 error), while others should work just fine, this is unfixable, but we apologize:

Watcn on YouTube: Third Day – "Cry Out to Jesus," which is a song for all who are addicted. There is grace and forgiveness for you from Jesus, Shannon. If you’d like, all are welcome to watch a wonderful THIRD DAY Songs Collection, brought to you by YouTube, Third Day and the Christian Music Channel. It’s over an hour and fifty minutes long, and Third Day in my opinion is the best Christian group you can find anywhere.

Note of August 16, 2014: This article is particularly written for one addict I once knew who let addictions to mind-numbing, killer drugs ruin the chance I once thought I had with her for a true, Christian love together. I was wrong. Shannon, God Bless you, anyway! (Exactly how many chances do I give you??? You’ve had way too many.) I don’t know what the Lord has in mind for me, but I am lonely and miss the companionship of a good Christian woman, or even just a caring woman such as I thought you were in your heart. Somehow, in 35 years of dating, including two engagements, I never really experienced that properly in my life, yet. I somehow just know that there is someone out there to love me. Email me at miracles.seawolf57 AT gmail.com OK? That’s at GMAIL.COM, OK? We should talk (or, you know, there are things hoped for, Christian things, we can do together. A nice walk in the park, a picnic, or simply going out for ice cream and a Coke. Forget the blame, don’t you know we are washed clean in His blood?

U2 – "Grace"

As to your drug dealer friends, listen up!

As to your drug gang friends, they should realize that a lot of them would die if they tried to get to me. If they’re smart they’ll keep the hell away. When you take drugs, Shannon, some drugs that is — many are OK and wrongly illegal, too — your logic is really poor, so I thought I would mention that there truly would be a terrible cost in lives and blood that your drug and mob friends would suffer if they attacked us. The cost of attacking us here is prohibitive. The person I talk with at night, Shannon, is Satan, and I am not the least afraid of him, praise God. I have always been a night owl, and love the quiet and peace of late at night. I am also, for real, a true, saved Christian, or else why am I worried about stupid, evil punks attacking me here? I do believe Satan would have a thing or two to say if your druggie friends were so stupid as to attack us here. So God, AND Jesus AND Satan, and whatever and whomever my new family can bring to bear against any attack on us are right here, waiting but worried because, frankly, you guys aren’t too smart and might well try something. Don’t. Or are you "Feeling lucky"?

By the way, I arranged it so my friends at NSA and CIA and FBI know exactly where you are, unless you want to stop using cell phones and phones, and computers, altogether. (I’m a journalist – every electronic communication I make gets human analysis. Besides, any device ever connected to the internet has an untraceable, untouchable cookie stored on it to track jerks like you, and has since 2006. Shall I go on? If I asked them for some help with you and your drug gang friends, I think you would be really screwed, Shannon.

God I love the Patriot Act! I truly do support it and The Daily Walk with Miracles fully supports our intelligence services, and all necessary security measures. (I would like to see some minor reforms in the Patriot Act, but I think those are coming if President Obama wants that.) However, back when I was a knee-jerk liberal, I do believe I was put on an ‘enemies list’ to be targeted. I don’t belong on any list of troublemakers any longer. I am reformed, truly patriotic, basically conservative though unorthodox, and a true, real saved Christian. You guys, could you take me off of your list(s) and maybe give me a real control to work with to help me keep the website clean? Please take me off your lists of dangerous troublemakers. In truth, I just want to cooperate, now.

Maybe God will grant me some sort of more "normal" life, now. Really, if I am being truthful, that’s all I ever wanted, through decades of being labelled and demonized as a mentally ill schizophrenic, and more trouble still because of you, Shannon. Perhaps even this article is His way of giving me that normal life. I pray I might have a long, happy life, and want that just like anyone else.

Are you addicted, perhaps, to… shopping? Television? The internet? Blogging? Cigarettes? Social Networks like Facebook or Twitter? Too much food? Are you addicted to the trappings of Christianity, congratulating yourselves that you are saved, while Jesus told us that we should "pray in a closet" and that those who worship in public "have their reward already"? Would you for example judge someone who is agnostic, despite the fact that this person has a caring heart and God may very well love him or her? Gee whiz, shall we do something about that as a society of shall we finally begin to follow Jesus words, to paraphrase Matthew 7: 1-2, "Judge not, lest ye be judged, or in such a manner as you judge others, so God will judge you." Judgement is mine, sayeth the Lord!

Article revision of October 3, 2013: I felt that the message in this article specifically about addiction is important enough so that I rewrote it, rewrote it again, and am bringing you a new version again. There is some personal stuff in this but then this is a one man blog. I am currently looking for someone to help me with this website/blog and if interested, please email me, Paul Evans.

"Pride in the Name of Love": Is there anyone who doesn’t know this song by U2? I cried the first few times I heard this and it is still the most inspirational song I know: Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson to some extent — and yes, this song — are the reason I worked for four years on a politics blog which was basically liberal, (and that told the truth a little bit too much, and too fearlessly, to be acceptable to the authorities). Pride in the name of love – that’s how I used to feel, at least, and to some extent that’s still very valid. Now I have some liberal conceptions of politics, and even some conservative ideas. I take truth wherever I can find it, and I try to explain it for my readers, because what a person can find in the mainstream media is sorely lacking. However, because my life (as a result of my truthfulness about things) went terribly wrong, I learned my lesson. We all have to make compromises with the status quo, sad to say. Everyone has to. We all want a car, a roof over our head, maybe a relationship with a nice person of the opposite sex, and, quite frankly, the more you are in the public eye, the more you need to pay attention to this and make some compromises. This is the way the world is, and you’d be a fool to think otherwise.

I feel that in working on this blog I am serving the American people and God in the only way I really have learned how to. I feel that I work hard at it and have a good feel for what is going on in the world of politics, at least, that I have been doing the very best I can. I don’t know anything else I could try which might make any kind of pinprick with what’s wrong in America, and really, I know that I am at least helping a few people, as must be God’s will. Before God, I do the best I can, and I do this work to try to help people.

U2 Pride in the Name of Love

I think Christianity warns us about pride, especially false pride, but still, I am proud of my efforts here. I have worked very hard at this blog almost every day for almost five years now. I started on election day, November 2, 2008, carrying political articles on my old website design site. I do think that any one man has a limited view of what’s going on in the world today, and I do feel more humble than I used to. A lot.

A Further Word About Addiction and Blogging:

Let me just say this: in most cases, if someone close to you has drug and or alcohol addictions, and/or is wrongfully abusing you, do NOT think you can handle it yourself. In most cases. Generally, it has been told to me by professionals, you are not competent to cope, or heal the person with love and kindness yourself.

Once in a while, through the power of the infinite God, love alone certainly does reach an addict, or an abuser, or someone else with terrible troubles in their lives, IS in fact reached by the power of Love. Shannon, you said that you are agnostic. Look around this website, look at the abundant proofs that God is real and God is Love, and then call on His holy name, Jesus, Immanuel, whom we know is the God of the Jewish nations and all Christians and caring people all over the world — Yahweh. Don’t write His Holy name down, the Bible is quite specific on that, God Himself gave me special permission. Ask Jesus for forgiveness, repent, not with all drug addictions, just with the ones you know in your heart make a normal life for you impossible: heroin and alcohol addiction. You are not alone, Shannon. Call on His holy name, and get in touch with me and make it before I find someone else to date who won’t give me a hard time like you always do. Actually, you were my one true love, you and Sherri. God often gives us more than once in our lives a perfect love, but sometimes we need to move on. I love the family I live with very much. There is no way I would ever move out of Wooster, keep that in mind, too.

Watch U2 – Yahweh, YouTube performance uploaded on April 18, 2008, by Wayne Carter, a fantastic song with a great video for you to see.

Almost always, your only real option is to get the person who is addicted treatment. The real problem here is that, many times, until the addict “hits bottom,” (and sometimes not then), they will not seek treatment at all or allow you to arrange treatment. Sometimes, if you can’t get the person help, you need to get yourself out of the situation. Loving someone can sometimes cost you up to your life. What I have learned, however, is that sometimes love will not allow you to withdraw, and sometimes, as is the case with many addictions which are so demonized in our society, the problem lies in society’s attitudes rather than any true harm in the addiction, itself.

I believe the real problem of the more “dangerous” addictions in our society is almost never the addict’s fault, but lies rooted in family problems as well as the intrinsic “wrongness” and sickness of the very society we live in. This includes the terrible damage we are doing to God’s perfect human genome because of genetically modified foods and all the radiation we have let loose into the world.

Below you may find it amusing to pick out those celebrities and power people you know among the 50 shown, who all smoke pot, courtesy of Abby Zimmet and Common Dreams. There are more dangerous drugs and less dangerous drugs. Marijuana, for example, has never been shown to have killed a single person, acting by itself. Alcohol on the other hand killed 44,000 people in 2004. Moreover it is alcohol which has been shown to be the real "gateway drug" in America. People go to parties, get drunk, and when they have few defences left to them, their buddy comes up to them and says something like: "Hey Baby, you gotta try this, it’s really cool." And thus it is because of alcohol that many people get hooked on dangerous drugs that DO kill people. OK, we are not going to make alcohol illegal. We tried that once. But in NO WAY should marijuana be illegal either!:

Let me get back to talking about serious or dangerous addictions. Pot isn’t one of them.

Most of the time, the experts keep saying, love will not alone be enough to reach someone with any kind of substance abuse problem. Once in a great while, through the tender mercy of almighty God, love will find a way. That way may be to finally solve the addiction through treatment, or, in fact, loved ones may choose to live with the problem, out of their love and caring for the person. A serious drug addiction can be “cured” ONLY IF the problem person is ready to make that huge, painful change in their life. If not, get them help any way you can, or accept it, or if you must, remove yourself as an enabler, and stop trying to think your own heartfelt love can make a difference. But to some loves, it just… doesn’t… matter. A pure love, sent from God, may have it so that a person would rather die than betray their beloved. I betrayed Shannon several times, by calling police into the whole issue. But you know in your heart, Shhannon, how true my love is for you. Sometimes, it takes a village, and there may be one of the interventions which are well known from TV. At other times, you just have to accept the addiction or get away from it. It would be a matter for serious prayer to God, getting all the information and advice you can, and then doing “what you have to.”

Please say a prayer for the drug addicts, alcoholics, abusers, and all those who have "something wrong with their head," such as I have been as a mentally ill person. 38 percent of the English population was recently found to be officially “mentally ill.” At some point in their lives, one-sixth of Americans are clinically depressed so that they should seek help and get medications.

There is no shame in being an addict, or shouldn’t be. It is not my fault about smoking cigarettes, and it is not their fault that heroin addicts are addicted so terribly. Anyway, God Loves and forgives you, be certain of that!

Do not doubt that God loves heroin addicts just as much as policemen, or that they are just as good as you are. You, too, as a teenager might have been enticed into trying some drug that it is almost impossible to escape from. HELP THE ADDICTED as you are able. For God’s sake buy them a pack of cigarettes, or give them a little gas, at the least. Without help they would eventually die a miserable death, if that is God’s plan. Perhaps they might simply get by until they can’t, and this can drag on for decades. How much love can you find in your heart for a suffering soul such as this?

You are probably wrong. You do not understand the addiction. You have been told that it is evil, that the heroin users are sick and that society must protect itself from them, perhaps lock them all away someplace. A social worker once confided to me that she felt that for felons, perhaps a “concentration camp” was the best we could do. How absolutely Unchristian and barbaric! It’s probably not your fault, you’ve probably never even smoked cigarettes and you DON’T understand the nature of these addictions. I am just saying, what the hell does the average person think they can know about heroin addiction. When 14,000,000 Americans are locked up each year for the terrible atrocity of smoking marijuana (or selling it), then, by all means, let’s lock them all away and throw away the key (sarcasm).

See Internet addiction even worries Silicon Valley, The Raw Story on The Daily Walk with Miracles, July 29, 2012, by Tracy McVeigh.

Kids, this is for you: I have seen heroin, morphine, methadone and other addictions such as crack and crystal meth, close up. You are the biggest fools you have ever met if you start using any of this stuff, and particularly heroin, crack, morphine, crystal meth, and the hard ones. As far as painkillers go, I personally, after what I have seen, would rather just take some over-the-counter painkiller such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen or even aspirin than get hooked on any of those. Experts also warn us that the biggest increases in drug use are among prescribed medicines, so watch out that you stay away from those, too, unless you really need them and they are prescribed. A sheriff’s deputy one told me, believing every word he said: "The only cure for heroin addiction is death." And 90 percent of the time, say the statistics, that’s true. Please say a prayer for the addicted, if you feel so led by Jesus or God.

THE CRUX OF IT, A PERSONAL NOTE: IT’S ALL ABOUT GOD’S FORGIVENESS because of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of His only begotten son, Jesus (John – 3:16) The rest of John Chapter 3 is particularly useful to Christians as it lets us know ways to tell exactly who is good and who is evil.

Personally, I have fouled up my life in many ways, and sometimes I have even betrayed those who love me and depend on me in ways large and small, even without meaning to. And I was not even aware of the extent to which my personality is messed up due to mental illness. I can only hope for everyone’s forgiveness, especially God’s. The Serenity Prayer as used in Alcoholics Anonymous programs, does provide me with some relief, and I have always thought they were good words to thoroughly really understand, thus the video, below. I’m 57 years old and so I have trouble learning new behaviors. I wasn’t raised as a Christian and never quite learned how to behave. I messed up in my life and they tell me it is not my fault, it is my mental illness. Now it’s almost too late in my life at age 57 to do anything but try my hardest from this point on and "hold on" despite my own pain and sadness. It’s also true that in this society, that mentally ill people are not given that much of a chance to “make it.” Schizophrenics in particular, claims Dr. Gabor Matte, M.D., Ph.D., are society’s scapegoats and suffer because of that in a manner similar to Jesus’ suffering. I myself as a schizophrenic know all about suffering due to people’s judgements of me. You know, I may be autistic and I may get manic really easy, but I think that they got my diagnosis wrong back in 1979. It’s is mania and NOT schizophrenia which runs in my mother’s side of the family. Even if, however, I am schizophrenic, who are you to judge me. Yes, we are in this veil of tears we call life, and I realize that we must ASSESS our situation and our surroundings and act accordingly. But no one has the right to JUDGE anyone, as Jesus warned. Sometimes it is frustrating beyond measure to have these limitations which I suffer because society puts labels on people and treats them as if the label said it all, and that the label is all that is important in assessing someone. I believe in the First Principle of Unitarian-Universalism: "The inherent worth and dignity of all human beings." I believe those are words to live by, and words that God thoroughly approves of, don’t you?

I can truthfully say I used to feel something like “Pride in the Name of Love” and that was why I ran “Evans Liberal Politics,” and now “The Daily Walk with Miracles.” Now Ifneed to feel much more humble than prideful, and I want to admit to you that, since I make de facto zero dollars from this blog, I basically blog because I don’t know any other way to be, how I could possibly live my life any differently. It’s how I have lived for the last five years. In other words it is its own form of addiction. Blogging, I have read, can be a very real form of addiction. I feel that while that may or may not be true in my case, what my motivation is, what drives me, is to try to help people and to serve God. Even so, while I admit to an unreasonable amount of time spent blogging and wish for changes in my life, I still enjoy blogging and also I am grateful for the small enjoyments that come my way every day. I have a scientifically trained, analytical mind, and people think that because I very often see unpleasant truths in a situation or about people, this means I am judging them and am cruel. Nothing could be further from the truth. I love people and need them in my life very much. I do apologize if sometimes I make you feel bad. I never, ever meant to.

Also, I am peace loving and hate violence to the extent that, perhaps I would not defend my loved ones, much less myself, in the event I needed to. (I never really have had to.) I am in some ways a meek person. But I have felt my meekness to almost be cowardice, a few times. And at other times, like anybody, I am angry when I shouldn’t be. I really don’t know, I just hate all forms of violence. This is a sort of overall confession, I realize. God says that we should confess our sins before the world before we should make any offerings for Him, and so I wrote this for the whole world to see. I am so very tired of my inadequacies. To those I have hurt in this life, or disappointed, and for the various ways I have fallen short, I confess it and am sorry.

*****

From March 27, 2011: In my own defence I want to quote an article I wrote back on April 5th, 2011, called What Gets Me About Spam Commenters and a Warning for Them: A Rant,” where I state that "the entire message of Evans Liberal Politics is about CARING and building a more caring society and I put all the work I do into our site simply in order to get that message out." No matter what I have said above, that is still very true.

Watch Ten Years After: “I’d Love to Change the Word”, YouTube music video — 3:47.

Moreover, I really enjoy bringing you The Daily Walk with Miracles: I enjoy finding content and authors for republication, and sometimes doing a lot of the writing myself. I enjoy doing the “coding” (programming) for the articles, and even the typing. (You’d think that would get repetitive, but not really for me.) It gives me pleasure to bring to you a hopefully helpful and (increasingly) politically correct vision and accounting of what’s going on in the world today. And I like to do it in an artistic and aesthetically pleasing presentation. That especially is fun, and that’s where you get into the programming, which I enjoy. It’s simple programming in HTML and a little XHTML and CSS, but I am half decent at it, and for me, it’s fun.

Addition of April 24, 2014: I am addicted to blogging and bringing you The Daily Walk with Miracles (and cigarettes). These addictions are no one’s fault, people have issues, people get addictions, and no one has the right to judge them for that but God Himself. What IS wrong, and what is my failure, is that I have not put people first in my life. I spend all my time blogging when I have friends that live right here with me I need to spend much more time at, in any reasonable way they would like. This is a new realization for me and I am going to try to do better. This failure is wholly my own fault. If however I could just get taken off of the secret "enemies lists" of certain government agencies, probably more than one, and stop fighting simply to keep my computer alive, that would give me much more time to spend with my loved ones. I pray to God that this might happen soon.

Some people I know who care about me have said that this website is an obsession or an addiction for me, and that it is not healthy for me. Maybe so. Still it give me a great deal of enjoyment. I guess some of the things I said here in the past which were plain wrong have hurt people, and I regret that immensely. I feel a terrible moral responsibility in trying to help people and serve God that I MUST get it all right, so no one is misled. You know, if you write about religion, the news, or politics from the exactly correct point of view with exactly the right words, STILL, there are going to be people out there who take you the wrong way and are going to be hurt because of that. I try. I do the very best I can do. That’s why I work so long and so hard each and every day as much as possible here. I don’t mean to neglect my friendships, but I will need my immediate family here to help me, but saying something like, "hey Paul, would you like to stop for a while and come and have a meal with us, or smoke a cigarette with us, or maybe, go into town with us?" That is truly great, but I could also use just a few new friends outside the family I live with, too. I like to get away, and I come back refreshed and raring to try once more. And, you know, I DO take pride in my efforts here, and that just can’t be wrong of me, since I know I please God by the efforts I am making for him, and to help people. I am lonely, though. I have always needed a woman’s caring Christian love in my life, and I have suffered with loneliness without that in my life. There is no special girlfriend in my life, now. I am not dating and I feel that if God brings someone into my life fine. Otherwise, I am basically satisfied, though lonely. Maybe my friend Paul knows what I should do, I do so very much trust him and rely on him, since I never was very practical and my new family here has been so very helpful and vital to my efforts in life. I want to thank them from the fullness of my heart!

The Truth About Politics

Politics is depressing. In that regard, my old friend Betsy sent me a wonderful article which I need to share with you, called “Across the Universe: The Power of Disillusionment and the Politics of Despair, OpEdNews, March 15, 2011, by Chris Floyd. A young man is disillusioned, somewhat depressed, and even contemplating drinking or suicide because his Mom’s hero Barack Obama is complicit in so much that is wrong. Instead of simply making a comment of some encouragement, Chris Floyd makes this commentary in its own article, of which I wish to quote part:

You have to remember that politics is a toxin. It will make you sick, taint your mind, poison your soul, blight your life if you let it. One has to deal with politics as a form of waste management, just as you need to have some kind of sewage system in your home or community to prevent disease.

Politics — the machinations of the stunted, damaged souls and third-rate minds who hanker for power — is just a small part of life. It entirely lacks the tragic element; nothing tragic or depthful about politics and power, it’s just brute force, greed, ignorance and spite. So there is no deep meaning to be found in it. No tragedy; no real joy either. Even the greatest moments, the epiphanies — and they do happen in politics on rare occasions, one must admit — will lead very quickly back into the sewage. And that’s OK, that’s the way it is; sewage, waste management — it’s part of life. But it’s not where meaning, joy, tragedy, the salt and savor of existence can be found. So why let the evil done by third-rate goobers drive you to despair of life itself? By hook, crook, lies and murder they’ve already amassed all kinds of power; why give them power over your very soul?

May God grant you the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, courage to change the things you can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

"I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have: three meals a day for their bodies, – education and culture for their minds – and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — And that’s why I am always used to consider myself a liberal. ~ Paul Evans (From my page of Political Speeches & Quotes).

special caring interview about the biology, morality and politics of addiction by Dr Gabor Maté "The Biology, Morality and Politics of Addiction:" Dr Gabor Maté caringly explains the truth to us in this long, but worthwhile and rewarding interview for our understanding. — 48:53

This may well be a very special interview, since I feel that I was strongly almost “led” by Jesus to it in terms of having something very on target about addiction to share with you. Just so we’re clear, I am addicted to cigarettes, coffee, and blogging, which is bad enough. I never in my life ever tried anything that wasn’t prescribed for me except in the distant past I used to occasionally smoke marijuana. I no longer do so, but not because I feel that there is anything wrong with it (2004: deaths due to alcohol in the U.S. – 44,000. Deaths in 2004 due to marijuana – 19), but because of the legal dangers and my fears about it interacting with my mental illness or my COPD. Cigarettes are bad enough, for me. This last about never smoking any weed may be kind of a lie, I’m sorry, but a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do. It shouldn’t be illegal and it helps a great many people. ~ Paul Evans

Neocons, Israel & Love

Be careful, prepared, cautious,
But fully open and honest
(it may be necessary rarely to lie)

Just be yourself and be loving!
If people started doing this, the whole world would be changed.
TELL EVERYBODY!

   

The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished August 16, 2014, published August 11, 2014, by Paul Evans. It is my strong wish for articles like this that I hope mean something, that I am plagiarized, seriously, take all of this article, and please share it with your social circles, friends and contacts. All of my articles should be considered public domain, however backlinks are much appreciated:

True Christians, most of us, whether we know it or not, are “grafted unto the tree of Israel.” Destroying the modern state of Israel would be like destroying the lower trunk and roots of a huge oak tree and expecting the leaves to live. Neocons, The Holy God of Israel, God of us all, will stop you, quite frankly, the aliens are quite caring and would destroy you (maybe you would just be dematerialized, as in Star Trek, but never rematerialized). What do you really know of the forces aligned forces opposing you? What do you know about who is loyal to you (actually) in government, in the military, and in our intelligence services. You know nothing, the fact is you have all been hypnotizing each other, it’s mass hypnotism, you think you are so conscious but you are asleep.

WAKE UP! You DON’T want to destroy the world. IF you are CAPABLE of logic, would it not be far better to expand the reach of American money and power around the world? OK, you think you are in charge, billions of people with hurt and pain and suffering just like you are begging you not to, but go ahead. Just don’t say you weren’t warned. Maybe you can do it anyway — cause the nuclear winter that would end most life on earth. Your real problem is that you don’t understand love. For your leaders, look around my website at the pages and articles about love. Maybe that would help you. I hope to God you know love before you die. It’s a damned shame to live without love. I know.

“Where there is injustice for one of us, there is injustice for all of us.” — paraphrase of special quote I have come to especially like by the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

My Own Truth About Love

To me, in my life and a few ladies’ lives I loved, I need to say, I’m sorry Sherri. I’m sorry Nancy. I’m sorry Cindy. I’m sorry to Shannon, too. I’m also sorry to Sandy. There have been others. I was an assh*le, with some of you. With others, you never gave me a chance. But I would have been true and deep down in your hearts, you know it.

The terribly fateful thing about my own experience with love is that over the last 35 years, I have been actively seeking a caring, affectionate lady in my life, and it has always eluded me. The horrible simple truth is, however, the solution to my pain, my own personal matrix of hell is so very simple. Ladies, should any one of you, anyone anywhere want a caring, kind and very loving man, I’m right here. My Outlook email is miracles.seawolf57 AT outlook.com. My Yahoo IM username is evansp66 AT yahoo.com. Nothing is stopping you from getting in touch, or chatting. How stupid is this damned life, sometimes. Yet I’m still real grateful I’m alive. Somehow, I remain coherent, if not so terribly sane all the time. And I hope I will still help people and serve God with this website, and will for a long, long time.

At my age (57) it’s a little hard to admit it, but I am single and looking, and I belong to a dating website, the best around so far as I know, www.OKCupid.com. In completing your dating profile there, they ask you what you will usually be doing on Friday nights, which is just a little embarrassing for me to answer, since I am not seeing anyone, and haven’t been, for way too long. My answer to the question is quite truthful however: “Sitting around watching what has become a mainstay in my house, WWE wrestling, along with old horror movies, cartoons and game shows on television, with my friend Dan and often Daniel.” Somehow, my “second family” makes being single in this life and even having lost my parents and sister, a lot easier to bear. God Bless you guys!

Anyway, the continuing saga of me trying to find a sweet, affectionate woman to date is a little hard for me to take, but I manage. Should any of you ladies be interested, drop me an email to evans.paul1957 AT gmail.com. Thanks.
