    A LOT of people that know the Clintons have died mysteriously ... According to pilots' logbooks, Bill Clinton made 26 trips with Epstein to Epstein's personally owned "Pedophile Island".
    Dead men tell no tales.

    The Society's Lawyers and Accountants are now running the show, and our "official theology" has been modified a dozen times to keep the financial coffers full.
    It has been a sad, sad thing to watch evolve.
    When this generation passes away, those that saw these changes will no longer be able to recount them, and the memory of them will disappear.
    There will be no "overlapping generations".
    Those that spin control the past, control the present.
    Those that spin control the present, control the future.
    ...... and I will be safely ....... dead.

    Without a bullet through the brain stem, or a radical frontal lobotomy, I am not sure anymore that one can truly be "neutral" about anything. 
    Perhaps the best we can manage is be uninvolved. (?)
    To not have an opinion about things going on around you means that you are brain dead.
    NOT GOOD.
    It is my understanding that the Society now allows voting to be a matter of conscience ( to keep from being sued out of existence for sedition ?) ... but I have not really been keeping up on that issue.

    There is nothing that warms the cackles of my heart more than contemplating a well hydrated chicken.

    If they are referred to as being chicken ... they have a good excuse!
    Results vary ....

    .... a little souvenir from the early 1970's I keep as a memento of interesting times ... and to surreptitiously quick  flash when I show a traffic officer my drivers license.
    The gold flash has gotten me out of seven speeding tickets, and I never asked for any consideration, and never gave any explanation.
    My eldest son was stunned when I got stopped in a 35mph zone doing 57 miles per hour.. When we pulled off without a ticket he said "I gotta get me one of those!".
    By the way ... the little red thingies are Chicken Nipples.  They sell them on Amazon.
    .... really!

    That's because I am the only one that got the history right!
    I am freaking AWESOME!
    Good Detectives detect much.
    With the same facts, bad Detectives detect nothing.
    ...  you have my condolences.

    If they were not guilty of sedition ... then why did they later remove seditious elements from the Society's publications.?
    Hmmmmmm ?

    I suppose it all comes down to the issue of credibility of the one doing the analysis of unseen, invisible things that happened a hundred years ago.
    How many times has the WTB&TS been right?,  and

    I don't care if it was encouraged by Mickey Mouse from the future!
    If it is the death penalty to park your car in a handicapped parking space, and you DO park your car in a handicapped parking space ... it does not matter WHO made or influenced the laws.
    You have committed a capital crime.
    You are GUILTY of a capital crime!
    .... and it is lawful to execute you.
    The fact that the law is changed at a later date IS A WHOLE OTHER SUBJECT!

    The FACTS were that they were encouraging Christian values ....  which to a nation involved in a global war for survival ... true Christian values ARE SEDITION.
    The rules change as a practical matter when a million men die in a year long battle, and Europe looks like the craters on the face of the Moon.
    The Society WAS guilty of sedition, in encouraging men to uphold Christian Values, and NOT WAR, at a time when the Republic faced destruction at the hands of the Germans.
    ...and that's the fact, Jack.

    That is so ludicrous I don't even know where to start.
    The reason the Brothers were imprisoned for sedition, etc ... IS THAT THEY WERE GUILTY !
    They were not let out of prison early because of some imaginary vindication ... they were let out because the "Great War" was over.

    As the Admin pointed out ... by the time I had entered this thread, the Admin had REMOVED THE REFERENCE.
    Therefore, you were reacting to what you saw ... and I was reacting to what I saw.
    I personally do not even take threats, real or just bluster, too seriously.
    I had a very wealthy Elder once call me up, and he said he was going to destroy me.
    I nonchalantly replied that he knew where I lived, and I would meet him in the street, in front of where I was staying,  anytime, and we would shoot it out.
    I never saw or heard from him again.
    ... and I do quite often TRY to act like  a three year old little girl ... they are so happy and full of life, and wonder !  
    Very, very inspirational!
    The best I can manage is a 24/7/365 sense of humor.
    I seriously doubt the Governing Body has anything to fear from John Butler, he has no firearms .... whereas YOU, on the other hand, have claimed to own a small arsenal, and a 50 caliber BMG sniper rifle capable of shooting about a mile and a half, accurately, and 4.5 miles total, and I would not be surprised if that foam on your mouth. is NOT shaving cream.

    I may have missed something BTK46, but I do not see where in this particular thread, as shown above, where John Butler threatened ANYBODY.
    Please correct me with a quote, as you apparently see something that is NOT THERE.
    No surprise at that .....
    It's either you, or me that is wrong about this, and historically, it's always been you.
    If I say the Governing Body is it's own worst enemy, because they keep shooting themselves in the foot and systematically destroying their credibility, day by day, that is NOT a threat.
    .... merely a figurative  observation.

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Kick_Faceinator in Overlapping generation - simplest way for public to understand   
    One day while out in Field Service with the smartest brother at our Kingdom Hall, a long time Elder and an extremely dedicated man, I asked him if he understood the overlapping generation dogma, and could explain it to me.  (He was driving, I was riding "shotgun", and there were two Sisters in the back seat).
    He was very thoughtful, for a few moments, and replied "I think they are trying to do the best they can ...."
    He could not explain it to me.
    Perhaps he needed to see this video!
    It's so CLEAR to me now!

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Thinking in Is the UN preparing to attack Religion?   
    After having spent twenty five and more years discussing things like this with people who have strong ideas about such things ... but like myself, NOT HAVING THE SLIGHTEST CLUE, I have given up even caring about such things.
    Things ARE WHAT THEY ARE .... and,
    THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY ARE NOT
    ... and a million word exposition  by the clueless ... myself included ... will not change that.
    Do the best you can ... chill out ... have a beer ...  relax ... take more naps.  Pay more attention to your children while you still can.
    Most "pangs of distress", I have found ... are self inflicted.
    About the OTHER "pangs of distress" ... soon ... perhaps too soon ... we will all know.
    I will probably be worse if you built your home on the side of an active volcano, or you live close to Yellowstone Park.

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from TheWorldNewsOrg in Why is Bitcoin so hard for most people to understand?   
    In a time of global pandemic, which has the potential to becoming global anarchy, I seriously doubt that an intangible such as a cryptocurrency will have any value when the global Internet collapses for most users. Gold will not have any value, either, because you cannot eat gold.
    If I had the kind of money people invest in cryptocurrencies, and gold, etc. I would invest in small useful things that will ALWAYS have value, no matter how bad things get.
    That is why I recommend investing in cans of tuna fish .... and 12 gauge shotgun shells.

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Patiently waiting for Truth in WHY would Jehovah's Witnesses reject Government calls for Independent Inquiry into sexual abuse?   
    The thought just occurred to me, that is we as Jehovah's Witnesses become tired of waiting on the Governing Body to straighten out this problem, AND hold those accountable, we can do it OURSELVES.
    Report EVERYTHING to the police ... and let them sort it out.
    Apparently THEIR system of Truth and Justice works better than ours!
    Not perfect ..... just better.

    Hmmmmmm ... and just who is there on Earth today that could do it?
    Jehovah did not interfere when the Nazis and the Japanese Empire were trying to take over the world. 70 years ago, and he did not help or harm any nation involved in the conflict, or any individual, inside or outside of the Truth.
    There is NOBODY on this Earth, able to fire the Governing Body.

    QUESTION: Why does Apple assume I want to be reminded of a photo memory from years ago? Do they not realize the pain they cause many people reminding them of dead loved ones etc?
    ANSWER:   Because either their programmers are cruel, sadistic trolls who believe that creating pain in the morning will help them sleep better at night .... OR .... it just never occurred to them that you are that fragile, or thought that you would completely forget them, if not reminded, by a photo from the past.
