From the gospel of Matthew:

"19:13. Then were little children presented to him, that he should impose hands upon them and pray. And the disciples rebuked them.
19:14. But Jesus said to them: Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come to me: for the kingdom of heaven is for such.
19:15. And when he had imposed hands upon them, he departed from thence."

David Allen Coe

This man is a song writing legend.  He will make you feel uncomfortable.  A biker chick friend of mine (Banditos) disowns him as a bad representative. Love him or hate him, he has made his mark and will be indelible in our music.

The influences that be current(2016), try to push his negro hating ways to the forefront.  Being that he is an outspoken and talented man, the songs from his mind has lifted many to fame.

Here are three examples.  The first, most will embrace.  The second, not as many.  The third, be my guest.

Who Do You Think

"Every time a Muslim engages in a terrorist attack, we get a lecture on the crusades which ended in 1291. Alternately, we hear how often these diehard Christians have attacked abortion clinics. Setting aside the fact that those killers are universally condemned by Christians, more people were killed in the San Bernardino terrorist attacks than were killed in every abortion clinic attack since Roe v. Wade(emphasis mine). We’ve even gotten to the point where liberal gay couples are seeking out Christian florists, photographers and bakers so they can pretend to be hurt when they refuse to cater their weddings."

"Let me also add, there is no “rape culture” in America. If you want to see a “rape culture,” go to Egypt or the parts of Germany that are overrun with Syrian migrants. There’s also no patriarchy and the idea that women are paid less than men for doing the same work has been so thoroughly disproven that only an idiot would believe it.  (...)  While we’re at it, if you get all upset about a man being polite enough to pull out a chair or open a door for you, there’s something wrong with you as a human being. Try saying thank you once in a while and more people will like you."

LSU and Administrative Idiocy

"FIRE predicted that universities would silence and punish faculty by using the Department of Education's unconstitutional definition of sexual harassment — and that's exactly what happened at LSU," FIRE's Director of Litigation Catherine Sevcenko said. "Under this broad definition of sexual harassment, professors risk punishment for teaching or discussing sex-related material, be it Nabokov's Lolita or the latest episode of The Bachelor. Now Teresa is fighting back to protect her rights and the rights of her colleagues."

Quick Test For some Adulterants In Food- Instruction Manual

"Very often food is adulterated by merchants and traders who are unscrupulous and want to make a quick profit.  But shortages and increasing prices, consumer demands for variety in foods, a lack of awareness, negligence, indifference and lethargy among consumers and inadequate enforcement of food laws and food safety measures also lead to food adulteration."

The Hardest Battle

I have heard it said that the hardest battles to win are those that you fight with yourself.

I have decided to quit smoking and feel so good about it, two days later, that I want to reward myself with a nice cigarette.

Monosodium Glutamate

"Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant naturally occurring non-essential amino acids. Glutamate is found in tomatoes, Roquefort cheese, potatoes, mushrooms, and other vegetables and fruits." Wikipedia

"That MSG isn’t the poison we’ve made it out to be has been well-established. News stories are written regularly about the lack of evidence tying MSG to negative health effects. (Read here and here, for example. Or here, here, here, here and here.) Still, Yelp reviews of Chinese restaurants tell tales of racing hearts, sleepless nights and tingling limbs from dishes “laden with MSG.” Even when the science is clear, it takes a lot to overwrite a stigma, especially when that stigma is about more than just food."

Freak of Nature

Obama Theatre

"Like most other gun control advocates, President Obama invoked scenes of mass shootings, as if what he is proposing would have prevented those tragedies. But, almost invariably, mass shootings occur in gun-free settings. Yet gun control zealots seem determined to create more gun-free settings."


Obama Care Repeal

"Today the House of Representatives passed a bill that would repeal Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood. This is the same bill that passed the Senate last month on a 52-47, with the Republicans avoiding a filibuster with the same reconciliation process that enabled passage of Obamacare in the first place. The vote in the House was 240-181, nearly along party lines. So for the first time, President Obama will be confronted with legislation that actually would bring Obamacare to an end, and will be forced to veto it."

VooDoo for Anne

Injustice Out West

"The two started a series of range fires on their private property which eventually spread onto federal land. The federal government prosecuted them in 2012 on an array of charges, from conspiracy to attempting to damage property through fire. They were found guilty on only two arson counts, which covered activities (setting fires) the Hammonds admitted to.

As part of their plea deal, they agreed not to appeal their sentences. 73-year-old Dwight Hammond was sentenced to three months in prison and his 46-year-old son Steven to 11 months, below the mandatory minimum of five years, which the judge, Michael Hogan, called "grossly disproportionate" and said would "shock his conscience."

As per the deal, the Hammonds didn't appeal the sentence. But the Department of Justice did, getting the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn Judge Hogan's decision and order the Hammonds to return to jail. They are supposed to do so on Monday."
