Friday, a monthly review was a Word of the Day from Dictionary.comdaymare – a distressing experience, similar to a bad dream, occurring while …

Feeling bad about feeling bad makes you feel worse,” until I had an opportunity to help a colleague, so I became: Nervouscited

Twilight’s Hour of Evil by Evehly

“The sensation of being nervous and excited at the same time; When you want to jump up and down and yell ‘YAY, ME!’ but you also want to curl up in a teeny tiny ball and hide at the same time.”

“Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you.
If what you heard from the beginning abides in you,
then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father.
And this is the promise that he made to us
– – eternal life. (1 John 2:24-25)”

“For Christ also suffered once for sins,
the righteous for the unrighteous,
that he might bring us to God, (1 Peter 3:18)
being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,”
collected in all the literature of the period.

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. (Acts 20:32)”

A careful viewer knows this could be an episode in two parts, around twenty minutes in. Dewey was the definitive breakout character, along with David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck. This series draws more from the comic, yet keeps aspects of the original show which aired thirty years ago. If you remember The Disney Afternoon, you will recognize some places mentioned in the first five minutes, and the garage contains Easter Eggs!

Botch-fest 039

Every Thursday, Hurricane Allie’s has wings for 75 cents each, and I’m watching FOX 4 News Kansas City at noon.

John Pepitone reported, “KC Parks Board to consider removing Daughters of Confederacy monument,” so a blathering blatherskite is going to make it everyone’s problem. What could possibly go wrong?

‘Daughters of Confederacy’ statue defaced with hammer and sickle, Vandals spray-paint Confederate memorial monument on Ward Parkway,” so that’s great.

Secondarily, I was wrong about where I had to sit on Wednesday at work.
The lighting is actually really good there, and my perception of the lighting suddenly becoming brighter on Monday mean something about my hypertension or diabetes.

One of those nights …

“One of those nights, one of those crazy old nights,” was how I misquoted The Eagles yesterday, not a good day at work.

As reviewed, one-quarter to one-third of my production had errors, notwithstanding my printer quit so I had to move to a dimly lit cubicle and I had had no caffeine, a substance which seems to be essential to function closer to quota.

An offer that I cannot refuse 033

At work, the day seemed to pass slowly, so I welcomed, “Hey if you have time after work we should get food! I’m off because of my trip I wanna tell you about it!”

One Day, Many Years From Now, Total Solar Eclipses Will No Longer Be Possible,” so Josh and I met at Jack in the Box, where we spontaneously met Travis and Scott with whom Josh has been working on an anthology of films. Anime Zone does not have a store, so Josh got a custom tee shirt made for my belated birthday: this message is on both sides, and Konata is on the back!

“And he is before all things, and in him,
all things hold together. (Colossians 1:17-18)
And he is the head of the body, the church.
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in everything he might be preeminent.”

“I feel the need to punch Nazis like I was Captain America,” boasts a friend on Facebook after he changed his profile picture to the character.

My friend habitually reacts this way, so I responded, “No, you’re thinking violence is the answer to a perceived injustice which has nothing to do with you,” and Cadence, no longer a Brony page, had this to say:

“Incoming post about punching Nazis, feel free to skip over if you’re not interested:

My main problem with this ‘Punching Nazis is always okay’ idea is that anyone can label anyone a Nazi and they can be assaulted.

It happened before, and it’s going to happen again

There’s a video on Youtube of a guy going up to some protesters to ask them questions (not to antagonize but to hear their point of view). The protestor girl takes offense at something he says, and loudly calls him a Nazi. Some dude comes from off-camera and says ‘Wait, who’s a Nazi?’ The girl points at the cameraman and the guy turns and punches the cameraman in the face.

I really don’t like this, because it can reach a point where anyone can label someone they disagree with a Nazi, and now someone (like the guy in the video) will just up and punch them.

Who determines whom is an actual Nazi?

The person holding the sign, who calls someone who doesn’t share their point of view a Nazi?

Yes, I know

The skinheads and Klan members all deserve a punch for promoting hatred and violence against others based on such petty things.

But, I’m talking more about the situation I described

Nowadays, people throw the term Nazi around very loosely. It’s used to describe people who don’t fit the definition, sometimes by people just to garner support.

‘Don’t agree with me? You’re a Nazi!’

There are lots of situations where people will be calling others Nazis, based on opinion, rather than fact.

If we make an environment where people say ‘Oh, don’t worry about that guy I just knocked out cold, he was a Nazi!’, then I see it getting very out of hand, especially in the current political environment, where everyone is clashing with everyone

I see a lot of people (on the left and right) calling others Nazis.

The right usually goes ‘Those leftists are taking away our freedom of speech! That’s no different from the Nazis!’ (‘Freedom of speech’ can refer to a number of things, depending on what’s being discussed)

The left tends to say stuff like ‘The right is a bunch of Nazis because I don’t agree with their stance on this issue.’ (‘their stance’ can vary, again, depending on the subject)

I DO agree with the idea that Nazis have absolutely no place in American society. Heck, Nazis and people who followed their belief killed my grandmother’s family in the Holocaust. I feel nothing but anger and scorn for anyone who shares the same ideas as Adolf Hitler and wishes to uphold them in today’s world.

But at the same time, I’m just questioning whether or not we should let this idea of allowing people to punch those they deem Nazis be hailed as a great thing.

Let me make it clear that I’m not defending the people who have swastikas tattooed on their bodies. I’m not saying that the skinhead with the Confederate flag flying over his house is right in his beliefs.

I’m just acknowledging the fact that there are a lot of people out there who blindly apply the term ‘Nazi’ to people they disagree with (again, NOT the skinhead racists, but people who have an opposing opinion, and not necessarily a racist one) and I’m questioning if this is a good idea.

I just don’t see it as a good thing, because it can be abused so easily.”
