Hello

Good Morning.

That shooting yesterday at the Sunoco 7 Eleven was the second gas station/convenient store shooting in Lehigh County in less than a year. The other ended up becoming a murder-suicide at the Rt. 100 Wawa in Breinigsville nine months ago.

Be careful.

It’s a Saturday morning, and this is kind of like a freestyle post me. Sometimes rappers freestyle, and you can do it as a writer to. Even if you have no material in mind-just start writing.

Poetry-A Freestyle Session

No rush,

No worry,

There’s not a reason for either.

Your path is waiting Keeper.

Nature is your teacher.

No doubt,

No fear,

It shall all become clear.

Evolutionary leap,

it seems out of reach,

but it’s not.

Stop and think on this,

It’s a decision,

That’s all it is.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone.

Steven Segal?

For those of us who love watching movies, there grows at some point an appreciation for the character who become the “universal badass.” The universal badass is the guy who defies all odds. He could walk into a bar full of trained killers, and walk out without a scratch after kicking everyone’s ass.

Or, like Rambo, take on an entire police department, or a country-alone. The universal badass is a joy to watch, and overtime, he actually becomes humorous. In a way, he becomes our hero, but we laugh at him. Why do we laugh? We don’t really know, it’s just funny to see a guy do the impossible like beat up 20 guys at one time. We love him.

Over the years there have been a lot of actors like this, but in the late 80s and early 90s, one would come along that would forever change the game. Steven Segal. What makes Segal different from all the rest is that he somehow managed to take his character with him into real life. In real life he’s a martial arts expert so it makes you wonder if he can really beat up 20 guys at once. You never really know though, and he never really answers questions directly so a lot of his reputation is built through assumptions.

In real life he’s a political diplomat with residency in two other countries. In real life he was a police officer in Louisiana, and eventually he took on that role in a show called Lawman. He continuously finds ways of reinventing himself, but he takes it all in stride. We always seem to learn something new about him that he’s been doing for 40 years.

I guess in all seriousness, we’re trying to get an idea of what Segal is really like. We know his character on screen, but fans want to know what the real Steven Segal is like. He never lets us in though. After a while, we get upset, and we’re like, “Alright, is this guy full of shit or is he the real deal?” We may never know.

However, there was an article published recently on the online publication Page Six, and in the article, his ex-wife Kelly Lebrock speaks up. And suddenly, Steven Segal is no longer a mystery. Click the link below. Before I end this post, I just want to say I love Steven Segal, and my entire family have been fans since Above The Law. You still make us laugh, and we appreciate the memories.

What Would You Do?

The title of this post is an actual question I’d like you to think about. The Twilight Zone was turned into a television series in the 80s, and it was the second episode I believe that was titled “Button Button” where a stranger wearing a suit shows up at a random home with a special box.

There’s an ordinary couple living there who seem a little squirrely to me, but that’s beside the point; Anyway, the stranger gives a box with a button inside it to the woman living in the house, and he explains to her that if she opens the box and pushes the button she’ll be given $200,000 by him, and at the same time, a random person who they don’t know will die.

She has, I think 24-hours to decide. She relays the story to her husband and they argue about it for while, but eventually, they end up pushing the button.

What would you do?

Would you press the button?

Lunatic; What’s that Guy’s Problem?

Lunatic, the first chapter in my book, Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories had created quite a stir, and to be honest, I ignored all of it until now.

I didn’t feel pressured to revisit this piece, or like I owed anyone an explanation, but its been about a year now since the book hit the shelves, and I thought my readers would appreciate this.

Chapter 1

Lunatic

“I hate you! I’m so fucking angry, and I’ll kill you! I’ll kill you right now!” I looked at myself in the mirror, and that’s what I said before leaving the house. That was my pep talk. I don’t know what went wrong or what’s wrong with me; I just know that I go through these moments where I feel like I hate everyone and everything, and when I get this way, I have to do something crazy to ease the tension. Here I go.

The above paragraph is the first paragraph of Lunatic. This is a short story about a serial killer. If he isn’t speaking to himself then he’s thinking-so most of the story are his thoughts. It was my intent to open with something completely unexpected and shocking, and it was. I wanted my readers to say themselves, man this guy is crazy-on a deep level.

And I don’t know if anyone picked up on it but, the killer only killed on nights when there was a full moon. Another name for the moon is Luna (in Latin), hence the name, Lunatic.

If you haven’t purchased the book yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. There are 24 chapters over 133 pages, and honestly, the title is probably a perfect way to explain what it’s about. A smorgasbord is like a buffet of different foods-so it’s a play on words. It’s a smorgasbord of creative work-it’s a collection of thoughts, experiences, and stories.

What’s up readers, fans, and followers? Today is Friday! Finally, for most of us, the workweek has come to an end, and of course, it’s pay day. It’s another beautiful day here-sunny and 63 degrees. You should enjoy this weather while you can because the winter is fast approaching.

🦉 Days of the week, trees, and deities; what’s the connection for today…For Friday the trees are apple and myrtle, the deity is the Lady, and the association is birch. The Lady and the Lord are God and Goddess, and birch symbolizes purification, blessings, health, and beginnings.

💀 In a Florida nature reserve called Carlton Reserve the remains of a human body were found. The FBI and local authorities combed through treacherous conditions to recover as much as they could. Brian Laundrie, and his fiance Gabby Petito went on a cross country trip last month, but Laundrie retuned home without Petito. Eventually, Petito’s remains were found, and Laundrie disappeared when police wanted him for questioning. When the human remains and other items were found at Carlton Reserve, authorities suspected them to belong to Laundrie. It wasn’t until a dental record check was done that their suspicions were confirmed.

💥 No charges have filed yet against Alec Baldwin who is speaking out for the first time today about the so called “gun accident” that left one person dead and one hospitalized. Baldwin was on set filming a scene for his new movie, Rust, which required him to shoot a gun loaded with blanks, but some how and someway, the director and the director of photography were hit with either bullets or shrapnel?!? The investigation continues. Can you imagine that? Unbelievable. Didn’t the same thing happen to Bruce Lee’s son Brandon?

Machu Picchu

It was in the early 1900’s that Machu Picchu was found, and the documentary I’m watching right now as we speak, said the Inca ruins were abandon for at least 4 centuries before being discovered.

I think that’s unbelievable and exciting.

Step Right Up

You see, the people who remove their masks after getting vaccinated are the most compliant, fearful, manipulating, and controlling of all. Most of them did everything they were told.

Wear your mask!

Okay.

Lockdown and no work!

Okay.

Get tested!

Okay.

Get vaccinated!

Okay.

Take your mask off!

Okay.

Go back to work!

Okay.

If they’re smart they’ll remain quiet and go about their business, but they won’t. Most of them can’t. Why you ask? Well, because they’re harboring resentment and a little anger on the inside for not having a mind of their own. As a result, they start calling people out who aren’t wearing a mask and haven’t been vaccinated. And that’s when they’ll give themselves away.

If you’ve been following my blog then you might recognize the content written above; it was under the Don’t Believe The Hype section of the last Nooz Now post.

And here we go; Christina Wyman, you’re what’s wrong with this country. Let’s start with the title of your article published on nbcnews.com under the Think, Opinion, Analysis, and Essays heading.

“COVID Vaccine Honor Systems are as Ridiculous as They Sound”

  1. A COVID vaccine honor system is something you made up. You hold no power over anyone who has decided to either not get vaccinated or wait to get vaccinated. Getting vaccinated was a choice just like wearing your mask.
  2. Your dentist is doing the right thing by not asking his/her patients if they’ve been vaccinated because that’s none of your dentists business.
  3. Nobody cares how many doses of the vaccine you received. No one cares. Seriously.
  4. Your quote, “If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that we can’t rely on the decency of those around us. A willingness to blindly trust simply doesn’t compute.” Once again, you cannot force anyone to get vaccinated, and you have it backwards. You’re the one who can’t be trusted. Leave people alone and worry about yourself. You have a poor outlook on life.
  5. Your quote, “When I arrived for my cleaning, I was armed with my Pfizer vaccination card and my mask, fully anticipating that my doctor would need to know my vaccination status in the interest of protecting herself, her staff and the other patients.” Oh you were armed? Fucking looser! Again, think about someone else besides yourself. Your poor doctor just got yelled at for asking to see a patients vaccination card, and then you come in and yell at her for not asking to know about your vaccination status.
  6. In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve reached a point in this pandemic where people’s rights are being infringed upon. There has also been a reckless disregard of the US Constitution and doctor patient confidentiality. Normal people are starting to wake up and realize this. Insane people like you are going right to the end with it.

If I was you, I’d stick to writing for CNN because that’s the only place that would publish that mainstream narrative bullshit. You’re closeminded and extreme in your thinking.

Okay everyone, have a wonderful night and a blessed day tomorrow.

Oh, here’s the link.
