Irresponsible Revisionist Journalism aka Time Magazine

1 10 2018

20663894_10211972485361274_5791033455315356987_nThere is a publication of Time magazine about creativity and they focus on the works of Leonardo da Vinci.  The journalist, Walter Isaacson talks at length about his understanding of Leonardo and in the article he quotes Leonardo’s biographer, Giorgio Vasari.

“Sometimes in supernatural fashion, a single person is marvelously endowed by heaven with beauty, grace and talent in such abundance that his every act is divine and everything he does clearly comes from God rather than from human art.”

And in the article Mr. Isaacson took it upon himself to claim that these words of praise from Leonardo’s biographer were [as he puts it] a “mistake”, removing God from the possibility that Leonardo was inspired from on high.

He goes on to speak for Leonardo (he must have known him well), “In fact [he says] the self taught Leonardo’s genius was wrought by his own will and ambition.  It did not come from being the divine recipient, like Newton or Einstein…”


What gave this journalist the authority to speak for Leonardo, Newton or Einstein?  That does not really matter.  The important thing is that revisionist journalists like Walter Isaacson are called out and recognized for trying to re-define things that have been set in stone for over 4000 years.

Did Mr. Isaacson go back in time and witness these things or is he just an irresponsible journalist who has an opinion and needs to finish his research on Leonardo so he can get paid?

To be so cavalier in removing divine inspiration from the gifted Leonardo is to put himself in place of the divine.

Just because he might not believe in such things does not give him the authority to disparage such excellent praise as was given by Leonardo’s biographer.

Mr. Isaacson needs to go back to school and remember that, as a mere journalist reporting on the great and gifted Leonardo, his opinion does not matter and should not be part of his reporting.

Who started the inner-city crack epidemic?

3 11 2017

People believe the crack epidemic in the 1980’s was seeded by the CIA to keep the inner city folks down.

That is not how it started.

On April 9, 1980 Richard Pryor was freebasing cocaine and drinking 151 Rum and douched himself with the liquor and lit himself on fire and ran down the street.

That is when the inner city discovered that you could freebase cocaine and got the crack epidemic started.

That’s how it started, the CIA stuff happened after that.





It Gets Better!

I’m in contact with my kids finally after so many years and it has been so great!

If I had a brother, son, dad who were in my position, I’d do anything to make him feel loved, safe, at home, comfortable.  But I have been through things that have humbled me and given me a different perspective I suppose than most people have.  Life should not be so complicated with drama, schedules, electronic devices and constant stimulus.  There should be time for calm, and peace and tranquility.  Society is bent on distracting us from the things that are sacred, Holy, uplifting and good in our lives.  Like having the time to read a book that has value for our lives.  We don’t sit in silence to read, we listen to the book spoken while we drive and eat fast food.

And the thing that is wrecking American social standards is the electronic hand held device of choice.  People are isolated behind their screens and headphones.  It’s not natural.  Technology has encumbered our social progress.  Social networking is not real socialization at all.  It is isolation, fantasy and showing off.  The art of writing a letter and sending it through the mail and having it saved by the recipient is lost on email and texting.





Corruption of the language

“Political chaos is connected with the decay of language.”
   -George Orwell

This is an interesting article on how the decay of our language leads to political chaos.

Omni 1:17

17 And at the time that Mosiah discovered them, they had become exceedingly numerous. Nevertheless, they had had many wars and serious contentions, and had fallen by the sword from time to time; and their alanguage had become corrupted; and they had brought no brecords with them; and they denied the being of their Creator; and Mosiah, nor the people of Mosiah, could understand them.

If we are without true, ancient records from the past, our language becomes corrupt.

Lay off the Donald, let him be president.

Trump’s not going to be impeached. He didn’t do anything impeachable. It’s all media lies. Watch Comey’s testimony, the real thing, not CNN’s version. It’s truly pathetic and it is fake news. Watch the hearings for yourself. I know, by what I’ve read here, that most people do not watch the hearings, but merely get the news from other sources which are opinions and spun up lies to bring down the president.

I watched and listened to the entire hearing. There is no collusion with Russia, nobody has any evidence, period. And Trump did not tell Comey to stop the investigation into Flynn. He said he ‘hoped’ the cloud would be lifted. And that is far different than giving a command or order, and Comey testified that he believed Trump was telling him what to do, but he said that to ‘hope’ is not the same as giving an order.
