Here it is in case you have never heard it or need a reminder: I once heard a story about a captain of a ship who looked into the dark night and saw faint lights in the distance. Without hesitation, the captain told … Continue reading Will Somebody Please Move That Lighthouse!

The Spring Institute defines cultural appropriation as: another culture entails taking from a marginalized group without permission, and usually with little respect for or knowledge about the culture. The picture above is meant to demonstrate this "offensive" behavior. Here's my question: What is the girl on the right wearing? It certainly isn't traditional native American garb. So, then, whose … Continue reading Cultural Appropriation
The video below is an example of what happens when a culture decides to answer a question but intentionally refuses to consider the correct answer because it doesn't fit with what it wants the answer to be. Our persistence in rewriting the reality of our own existence extends even to the denial of what we … Continue reading Cisgender? (Turn off your brain and watch this video!)
The guy who accidentally introduced the irritating word 'hodl' into the crypto dictionary was drunk. Some of the sentiments I have read on Twitter and Reddit from some of the 'hodlers' causes me to wonder if they, too, are not drunk. One of the comments I have read from some TRX hodlers goes like this: … Continue reading Beware Drunken ‘Hodlers’!

Today, Jade Scipioni reports that Jamie Dimon, Chairman … Continue reading Big Business Will Come to Crypto

It’s been a while since my last Bitcoin (BTC) update. I suppose the first thing to say is that, for me, it has expanded into cryptocurrency exploits. That is, I still hold some BTC, but I have learned a few things since I started which has led me to invest (mostly move around my investment) … Continue reading Bitcoin Update #5
Bitcoin has dropped almost $6000 since it's rise to nearly $20,000. Time to panic? No. I don't think so. Time to be patient, maybe strengthen your holdings, and watch it climb back. Just my opinion. I'm no expert. The financial markets, the world are coming to grips with cryptocurrency.
Ah! Cryptocurrency madness! There are still plenty of mysteries to me when it comes to cryptocurrency. Not only the internal workings of it (how it is mined, etc.), but also what to make of the now 1,482 cryptocurrencies available to invest in.

So, I have had several people ask what I think about the so-called apocalyptic signs that are to be seen in the heavens on September 23. Here is where I stand: FIRST, let's be clear: the claim that Saturday's alignment is "unique" is based on Venus, Mars, and Mercury being lined up in a somewhat … Continue reading What’s Going to Happen on September 23, 2017?
So the word 'antifa' apparently is what we are calling the people who have committed themselves to going around the country and physically resisting all fascist activists and their activities. Now, the definition of fascism (from the Oxford English Dictionary) is the following: "Any form of behaviour perceived as autocratic, intolerant, or oppressive; esp. the … Continue reading Fighting Fascism with Fascism?
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:5, KJV)
IMAGINATIONS. High things capable of exalting themselves against the knowledge of God. The authority to cast down thoughts produced in the mind (human or otherwise) that concoct a view of reality in which God is not the God.
