And then there was light

Here at The Hollow things have slowed down now that cane season is done. Winter has arrived and the temp is below 60 most days. To put it simply, I am cold. 

Not being a "scholar" of any note I don't read into the things politicians and other liars say. Since I have high blood pressure and sodium chloride tends to make blood pressure climb, I can no longer take what they say with a grain of salt because everything they say is skewed, twisted and mutilated beyond any concept of truth. Dummykrauts blame the rich kid and the rich kid blames them and the truth is America is at fault. We elected all of them and we obviously have poor taste in leadership. I just hope we don't get another Hitler in the mix and especially here in La. Tell you the truth it is almost as though many of our current batch of "leaders"  have been reading Mien Kamph and studying Karl Marx's drivel. News flash twits, check your history books a little closer, not the recently published ___*___ that is being forced down our kids intellectual throats but the ones you can observe from back when newspapers treated truth as a friend instead of the enemy. Both of those guys lost. China's communism is a slightly adjusted for of imperialism as they built a larger empire but like all top heavy governments, it will eventually collapse into re-written history. I hope our government "officials" are taking notes because we are less than 30 years from that fate ourselves. It is time for those whom are supposed to be representing us get off their collective tushes and represent. Time for both "major" parties to disestablish and for people to be given true information unfiltered through party doctrine and the "they" of censorship. Time we stopped worrying about a wall and worry about the unborn voters that are killed for convenience sake. How about you young people begin doing what us old people forgot about and self-discipline yourselves. Choose bravely to forgo the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. I have always felt adoption was the better option over killing a higher lifeform. The only time I agree with abortion is when the child poses and extremely dangerous situation to the mother and there is a very great risk of the mother dying in the process as well as the baby. What I call the right of preexistant life to continue. No child has a right to end a mother's life and I mean the physical life, not the lifestyle. There are extreme circumstances that aren't addressed here, but they are rare enough to not be addressed in this missive.  

Here at The Hollow we are just waiting for winter to get it's fill of Cajun hospitality and haul its tukas back over the Canadian border. Then we gonna see about a visit to Cocodrie.....

A New Year Begins

Happy New Year, Y'all

Once again the calendar goes around. Once again we have a chance to do things right. Once again I think that without a miracle from The Creator we will fumble again and not promote real peace and real love, as God has shown us. But we can if we will. Choose to make a difference and you can see His hand at work. Choose to be nice to each other and just maybe you can understand the feeling of doing what is right. Help where you can. Pray where you cannot help. Examine you motives whatever the situation and give God the glory every time.

Jus' sayin'

The Season of Greed

I know, it is unusual for this type of take on Christmas.
 But I have to acknowledge that mankind has failed once again to realize it's full potential and failed to recognize the Creator's handiwork. A way to be reconciled to said Creator has been provided and that is the true message of Christmas. It isn't about presents and Santa Clause and forgiving one another. It IS about being forgiven, not by the birth of the Savior but by His death, burial and resurrection. The planning for this event began before time was created and this plan will continue till the Creator ends time. For you non-believers and followers of false prophets this is certain knowledge of unseen things for me. I am stating my opinion and I am entitled to it according to the laws of the land as well as the unalienable laws of existence.

Nowadays, Christmas shopping seems to be a new god. Black Friday starts on Thursday evening or in some cases the week before Thanksgiving. People go to extremes to get a certain item that is "special" and usually unneeded at an alleged "reduced " price. On rare occasion some of the items might actually be a needed thing and a reduced price, but that would be the exception not the rule. Regardless, the intent and purpose is to get you in the box and relieve you the stress of carrying money around and to help you explore the limits of your credit rating. Anything that will get you to part with real or imagined wealth. So few of the big box stores care anymore about the customer so I recommend you expect bad service from cold uncaring people and should someone actually give you good service, you should reward them with a smile and a "thank you, and to you as well". Realize that the person you deal with at the register is usually a minimum wage temporary employee who is put in a position of having to deal with over-tired and over wrought shoppers who are irritated by the whole shopping venture. They are given the barest minimum training of how to operate a register and generally no training on how to deal with customers except the eternal "smile and wave, boys" philosophy and nowhere near enough "supervisors" around to give on the spot advice and showing instead of telling when an error occurs. This is probably why I never ventured into the retail business for a job. I have little patience for machines that fail to perform as designed and even less tolerance for the rude, crude and should be socially unacceptable behavior of many of my fellow customers.

So when you are out shopping for presents be sure to make allowances for the occasional (read as often) bad tempered shopper or the overworked register operator who has been on their feet for 6 hours. I mean really, does being an ogre gain you anything? All you do when you behave like that is to reveal your bullying nature and bring everyone else down. And if you should believe in Christ, your example on such occasion reveals your lack of understanding and certainly does not reveal an understanding of the Love of God that we should all be reflecting.   Rather, follow the "high road" of benevolent attitude and give from the heart, not the wallet. A card of tacks worked for me when I was young and something handmade or assembled by you would probably be more appreciated by true Christians.

Love rulz dudes and dudettes. Simply put because God is Love.                                   Cosmic Charley
