MY SH#T LIST [2008 Original]

.
In January of 2008, in anticipation of the presidential election and while I was still active at BigBitch.com (before that website censored me), I put together something titled ‘MY SH#T LIST’. It was conceived as a commentary on the presidential candidates but quickly grew into something more inclusive, and not surprisingly, it featured some pretty snarky remarks.

Below is my original 2008 ‘SH#T LIST’ followed by my three 2013 additions.

Well, at least the Scarecrow KNEW that he didn't have a brain! We're really gonna miss ya, Georgie, but you'll finally have the time you need to follow that yellow brick road to— 

[We interrupt this broadcast of ‘My Sh#t List’ for this important announcement:

According to federal and local publishing enforcement officials, LOST AND FOUND, a novella by Bryan Pedus and Brandon Meyers has just been released. It’s a psychological horror story and unlike anything they’ve ever written before. You can learn about it by clicking HERE. 

The authorities stress that this is not an emergency – we repeat, this is NOT an emergency, as plenty of copies of Lost And Found are currently available. If this HAD been an actual emergency - because supplies were limited - you would have been notified about where to go, where to stick it, and where to get off.

Although supplies are plentiful, you should not wait to order your copy. Remember: He who hesitates is “LOST”... AND maybe never “FOUND”.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.]

It Takes A Village Idiot to be unable to see through Hillary Clinton!

At one point in her book, HELLary Clinton praises the late Senator Margaret Chase Smith for standing up against the devil (i.e., Senator Joe McCarthy) and composing her ‘Declaration Of Conscience’ against him - which seven other senators signed. McCarthy was soon referring to Smith and her friends as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. McCarthy was great!]

By Glenn Beck

Added April 21, 2013
(S)HE'S GLENN OR GLENDA BECK... NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT. [This expression came to me when I combined phony conservatism with Ed Wood transvestism and Seinfeld Sentimentalism.] 'IDIOTS UNPLUGGED' means "Keepin' it safe". Otherwise an electrical mishap could turn Marshmallow Head Beck into a Toasted Marshmallow Head.

"If I only had a brain... instead of a broom".
.
Mike Broomhead

Mike Broomhead is one of the so-called “conservative” talk radio hosts at 550 KFYI in Phoenix, Airheadzona. Mike has become so buddy-buddy with Glenn or Glenda Beck lately that, frankly, I suspect that Beck and Broomhead are sweeping together.

With any luck at all, Mike Broomhead will beat George W. Bush to Oz and get that brain from the Wizard.

Susan Shannon of the blog 'SHORT LITTLE REBEL'

After having been a loud-mouthed, unnecessarily antagonistic, jackass Liberal in San FranCrisco, Susan Shannon had a religious experience which transformed her into a loud-mouthed, unnecessarily antagonistic, jackass “Xhristian”.

Some of you may remember my little encounter with the Short Little Psycho. After having praised her on my blog, she suddenly turned on me, publicly, in one of her many unreasonable, bipolar episodes, and gave me a ration of sh#t.

Apparently it had become commonplace for S.S. to get away with that sort of behavior directed at other people, but when she tried it with me, she discovered that she “had talked trash to the wrong Alaskan brown bear” with a blog.
.
After setting the record straight and retracting anything positive I had previously said about her, I didn’t really think about Susan Shannon again until the Boston Marathon bombing. A day or two after the terrorist attack, I got to wondering if the S.S. had posted anything on her blog about it, so I paid a visit.

No, S.S. had not posted on the bombing, but I did find that she was still the same nasty “Xhristian” she’d been before; apparently she hadn’t learned a thing from my friends and me about the inappropriateness of her “un-Christian” demeanor.

Below are a few highlights from her recent “warfare” (a.k.a. “attempts to display the love of God and Christ for man”).

This militant sector of the Christian community is WRONG and it is they who are working against God.

[STMcC: Ha!-Ha!-Ha! “This militant sector of the Christian community”?! If that ain’t the pot calling the North-African kettledrum player “Black”, I don’t know what is!]

Shawn Daniels says:
Shawn’s Comment was deleted.

Shawn, yes, I really do believe that a man is 100% responsible for ABORTION. I do. [Blah, blah, blah; yadda, yadda, yadda; etc., etc., etc., …]

Shawn Daniels says:
You have the nerve to delete my comments but you still reply to me? If you had let my comments stand you & everybody else would have seen I was speaking against your man-only blame game. BOTH parties are responsible but you are hell-bent on putting all the blame on the man. [...] you are wrong in your decision to support abortion, at ANY stage of pregnancy. All your screaming about what men are, how they function relating to sex with women, woman’s behaviors is irrelevant to the law of ‘thou shalt not murder’. I don’t care that this is your page. You think that gives you the right to speak lies? God is watching & you will be held accountable for your actions.

Shawn. All I can do is LAUGH at your indignation that I should blame men. How many women have YOU used for sex? Based on your reaction here, I would guess quite a few. … So this time, I WILL let the world see your hypocrisy. [...] Sorry, Shawn. I think YOU have some skeletons in your closet that might need looking at. Most Christian men today do.

And there we have it, Ladies and Gentleman! The Christian lady who is ticked as all get out at me wants to…. (drum roll please!)…. PRAY FOR ME! And my soul! And my CONVERSION! [...] Christina, the more you talk, the more convinced I am how right I was to block you from my FB page. btw, no thanks on those prayers. I’ve already got my bases covered. hypocrite. *spit*

altruistico says:
I came to you the other day and saw you were having a really bad day. People had pounced on you concerning your view while on Facebook. I was not one of them. I did not have any part in that episode, Rebel.

I came to you after that incident and tried offering you some reasonable advice, solace and some wisdom concerning what I believed was the problem.

Today you come back at me with a vengeance – your attitude with me is way out of line and I am going to point that out to you right now. You say you’re a Christian, alright – begin showing the world that’s what you are. Your actions show anything but Christian character. I never yelled at you, nor wrote in capital letters which would indicate shouting, yet you come here today and make all kinds of allegations concerning men, those people on facebook and so on. When you settle down, come back to talk. I will listen and give my very best. May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you, Rebel.

Really? Now, that makes me laugh. A ‘Christian Character’ is what? Someone that agrees with you? My response to you stands. You come with soft, religious words when you really mean a rebuke. I am just more honest than you. Also, more honest than most Christians would dare to be. I never go around saying I will pray for someone when in fact, I am upset with them. I never use my God as a weapon against others. […] So, my basic attitude, as ‘UNCHRISTIAN” and shocking as it may be is, “Shut up.” Go mind your own relationship with God. OK?

[STMcC’s NOTE: Jesus said, But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you...” In other words, YES, our Savior told us to “pray for someone when in fact, (you are) upset with them”, and believe me, it sometimes takes an awful lot of inner strength to do it! But apparently Susan Shannon wouldn’t know, being a “Xhristian” rather than a Christian.]

She wants to be a teacher of God’s Word and yet she doesn’t possess The Holy Spirit’s guidance within her to effectively be that. That’s the reason she ultimately pisses off 100% more people than she brings to Christ. Some examples of her false teachings follow:

Susan Shannon: “FEARING GOD is right and moral. Would we fear a God who is always sugary and nice and forgiving and loving? No! You fear a God who can kill and destroy you at a moment’s notice!  He HATES sin and if the sin is great enough, he HATES the sinner too.

Really? Well, if Susan Shannon is going to take every word from her NIV Bible hyperliterally, then I guess, for the sake of consistency, she is forced to say that you and I cannot be disciples of Jesus until we literally “hate” our family members. After all, Jesus did say: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters - yes, even their own life - such a person cannot be My disciple.”

The S.S. does not comprehend the way language is often used in The Holy Bible, and that leads to all sorts of misunderstandings and false theology. She’s the poster child for the degree of damage that one short, little, big-mouthed rebel with limited knowledge can do.

.
The S.S. answered: Jesus knew that they would be violently attacked for continuing to spread his ‘blasphemous’ message. That he was the Son of God. Therefore, they would indeed need money, along with a bag for their blankets & supplies- and a sword for protection. But note that he said that only two swords were enough. While it is important to protect ourselves, I believe his point was that we are not to be militant. We are not to use them in OFFENSE. Rather, defense.

[STMcC: The reference to a sword by Jesus Christ did not pertain to self-defense. I could tell you what The Holy Spirit of God has taught me about this Bible verse – but I’d rather that all y’all began reading The Bible for yourselves and learn to hear what God’s Holy Spirit has to say to YOU personally. I will state, however, that if you think about it in context, or just get quiet enough to hear that “gentle whisper” of God’s Holy Spirit within, you will be taught what it’s all about. But it’s NOT about killing humans in self-defense.]

Susan Shannon was wrong (again) but it is my sincere opinion that there isn’t anything wrong with Susan that a hundred dollars and The Holy Spirit couldn’t fix. Let’s hope she lets go of her old San Francisco attitude soon, because that ego of hers is making enemies of people who should be Susan’s “brothers and sisters in Christ”.

Having said all that, I admit that Susan did give me an A-list laugh recently. I realize that everyone reading this ‘SH#T LIST’ may not be well educated about the Life of Christ, so I will provide the Biblical context which will give all y’all the necessary background info you'll need to enjoy the following as much as I did.

Christina Vermeire says:
I have come to the conclusion that she [Susan Shannon] thinks she is God. I will continue to pray for her conversion.

Christina had no idea how much gold she had struck with that comment! But being as familiar with The Bible as I am, I discerned the Messianic pattern that the S.S. was following in a recent post, and it inspired me to nickname her SUSAN “THE GRAND DELUSION” SHANNON. Read and enjoy:

“All this I have told you so that you will not fall away. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me. I have told you this, so that when their time comes you will remember that I warned you about them. I did not tell you this from the beginning because I was with you, but now I am going to Him who sent me. [...] But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. When He comes, He will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because people do not believe in Me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see Me no longer; and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.”
~ Jesus (‘John’ - chapter 16)

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
~ Jesus (‘Matthew’ – chapter 28)

“I would stay until the end if God allowed it. But don’t you remember my warning? That God might remove me from you? That he might remove me so that each and everyone of you might go out and tell thousands of other people about Jesus and that his return is near? My page was a comfortable place for everyone. Sometimes I worried about that. You were always amongst friends. [...] But like the Jews in Israel after Jesus was raised from the dead, had persecution not come, they would not have left Israel and gone out into the world to spread the news. Perhaps you would have remained forever on my page instead of embarking on your own.

“Many of you have already begun your journey alone and have already faced demons. It will only get worse. But working for Christ is a glory in and of itself and brings its own rewards. You will be strong because that is his wish.”
.
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. [...] Whoever listens to you listens to Me; whoever rejects you rejects Me; but whoever rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.” The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; [...] At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.”
~ Jesus (‘Luke’, chapter 10)

“If I can not get back onto FB, I will be content. Because this would not be the hand of man, but of God. No one can thwart his will. And if I can not get back on, your ‘home’ will be gone on FB. That means you are all ready. That means that God wants each and everyone of you core 1,800 people to go OUT and do what I did! Tell the truth. Take the Bible as your sword and save lives. People will get angry at you- pagan and Christian alike! That is how you know you are doing a good job! [...] The religious community is the one who hung Jesus on the cross. It will be the religious community that will persecute you the most. Where there is no love, there is nothing. Where there is no compassion, there is nothing. Christians who live by the letter of the law and have no love in their hearts are as evil as the pagans. No, worse. Because they know better.

“Be brave my friends. Be bold. It is your turn now. Go. And lay down your lives for your friend as our Lord commanded.”
.
“Christians who live by the letter of the law and have no love in their hearts.”: Those are Susan Shannon’s own words, but given three days I still couldn’t come up with a better description of Susan herself!

Ha! Yes, SUSAN “THE GRAND DELUSION” SHANNON it is. This woman thinks she’s the 21st Century Internet Jesus, sending her flock out into the world to do battle for God! Yes, SUSAN “THE GRAND DELUSION” SHANNON, the newest member of MY SH#T LIST. [Thanks for the laugh, S.S., but you really should come back down to Earth soon... and save us all!]

Angela Kaye Mason says [to Susan Shannon]:
You probably won’t remember me. I had a few questions about the Rapture and Grace and Law. You answered them…. and I felt pretty good about your answers. Then last night you deleted my comments and blocked me from your Facebook simply because I don't feel that ALL of the blame lies on men. I don't expect this comment to be posted. I simply want you to remove me here like you did there. It hurt. It stung. But you have a deep hate of men that you have to fix before you can be a leader for me. And you refuse to hear anything from anyone else. No, I won’t go make a copycat page or smear your name... I am a Christian. But I did see a side of you that shocked me, and shook anything you’ve taught me. My advice? Leave out the drama... it is erasing any testimony and teaching you may have. Please remove me from here so that I wont get anymore emails... if you don't want me on your Facebook, why would I follow you?

I’m sure it never occurred to Susan Shannon that God might have shut down her Facebook page because she was misrepresenting Him and His Son, and giving Christianity a bad name with her nasty “Xhristian” demeanor, but that’s probably where I’d bet my federal funny money.

SINGING AMERICAN REVOLUTION

.
Well, triple-dog damn-it! I was determined to get my next A-list blog bit posted here tonight, but it didn’t happen. It’s to be titled ‘MY SH#T LIST’, and it will include something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

But I couldn’t get it up tonight. (Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! I simply meant that I ran out of time and couldn’t get the blog bit posted.)

But I only have a few passages from The Holy Bible to copy (that’s the “something borrowed”) and then my next A-list blog bit will be complete. So, tomorrow night I’ll get it up for sure... unless I’m struck by a bus... or space junk... or the liquor stores run out of bourbon.

So, check back tomorrow night, all you ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ junkies. (Who the hell am I yakking to?)

However, for now, just to tide you over, I’m posting the video of a patriotic song I like a lot. I was reminded of it when I quoted from it in a comment to my friend Arlee Bird.
.
I mentioned this song on this blog back in June of 2008 in my test titled [Link:] EDJUCATION-R-US: "We B Edjucatin' U." [Issue #1: Polatics & Soshial Studies]

Here’s the tune, by one of the greatest choral groups of all time, with lyrics by one of our nation’s most influential Founding Fathers:

"The Declaration" of Independence - sung by The Fifth Dimension
.
 .

That song – ‘The Declaration’ - can be found on the 2-disc, 36-track CD release ‘UP-UP AND AWAY: The Definitive Collection’ by The 5th Dimension. I play it often and I highly recommend it. Getchaazz to a record store and buy it!

THE SHROUD SPEAKS TO ME (Or, AN ANTONACCI IN THE COMMENT SECTION IS WORTH TWO IN THE BURNING BUSH)

.
This certainly isn’t the political and (hopefully) humorous blog bit I was intending to post here tonight. That will have to wait a little while longer, because this is too exciting (to me, anyway) to hold back.

On June 29, 2005, I posted a review at BigBitch.com for the book ‘THE RESURRECTION OF THE SHROUD’ by Mark Antonacci. The review was titled Atheists, Be Afraid. Be VERY AFRAID!’

My book review included the following paragraph:

Once you've grasped the complexity of it, you'll understand why John Walsh has written, "The Shroud of Turin is either the most awesome and instructive relic of Jesus Christ in existence... or it is one of the most ingenious, most unbelievably clever products of the human mind and hand on record. It is one or the other; there is no middle ground." And how the respected scientist, John Heller, could claim that, "If you were to give me a budget of ten million dollars and told me to make a replica of [the Shroud]... I would not know how to do it."

The review also featured the chameleon-like Yoey O'Dogherty disguised as an internationally renowned Peruvian poet. And therein lies part of the problem, but, as Waylon sang, “I don’t explain if you don’t understand”.

The only comment that review ever received came in April of 2009 - nearly four years after the review was published. The first sentence of the comment was: "This review was interesting and well written but I have to take strong exception to the title, "Atheists, be afraid. Be very afraid!" (and in caps, no less)."

I have to respectfully disagree with the commenter. But, no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Actually, I still like the review’s title. But I have always disagreed about the review being “well written”. In fact, for years it bothered me because when I am particularly enthused about something, it’s easy for me to write well about it. But I loved Mark Antonacci’s book ‘THE RESURRECTION OF THE SHROUD’ so much that I felt sure it would inspire me to write one of my best, most creative reviews. For years it bothered me that the review I posted was not as good as I thought it could have and should have been. I’m serious: YEARS after writing and posting that review at BigBitch.com, I would periodically think back on it and shake my head at my own failure as a writer. I wanted that review to be so good, but I always felt it fell flat.

That’s the reason why, on Friday, June 15th of last year, after having reread (for perhaps the 3rd time) Antonacci’s ‘THE RESURRECTION OF THE SHROUD’, I decided to rewrite that old review and post it here at ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’. I was attempting to redeem myself and make right a wrong that was done seven years earlier!

The rewrite was titled ‘SUPERNATURAL PHOTOGRAPHY’. I believe my second attempt was an improvement over the first but it’s still not as good as it should be. God only gave me just so much writing talent and I guess I exhausted what I had.
.
This past Easter (March 31, 2013), ‘The Resurrection Of The Shroud’ and Mark Antonacci were again mentioned on this blog when I posted the blog bit EASTER SUNDAY AND “THE RESURRECTION OF THE SHROUD”.
.
Well, earlier tonight, to my tremendous surprise, I received a comment here at ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ from NICK ANTONACCI of the ‘RESURRECTION OF THE SHROUD FOUNDATION’. Naturally I am assuming that Nick is the son or brother of author Mark Antonacci. This is the first time anyone associated with a product I have reviewed has contacted me in connection with my review, so it’s a real thrill for me. The fact that it has to do with subjects so near and dear to my heart (i.e., The Shroud Of Turin and the book ‘The Resurrection Of The Shroud’) makes this an ultra-thrill for me!

I haven’t even had a chance yet to contact Mr. Nick Antonacci – although I surely will – but I couldn’t wait to share this with my (admittedly few) readers. Below is the comment that was submitted to my blog earlier this evening:
.
.

Stephen McCarthy

Thank you for taking the time to type up a sincere and complimentary Amazon review for Resurrection of the Shroud, by Mark Antonacci. Because of you, I'm going to start using the word "Balderdash". Your opinion was quite opinionated, and, I think spot on. Too bad you aren't writing opinions for Amazon anymore.

I appreciate the comment, and so does the Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation (RSF) and one of its founders and the author, Mark Antonacci.

It would be greatly appreciated if I could get you to visit the Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation’s (RSF) site: www.testtheshroud.com. There, you can get a better idea of the Foundation and sign our petition, via a 3rd party site, to the Pope respectfully requesting more testing (http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/petition-pope-francis-to/). The only thing you need to sign the petition is to list your name and email address.

Frankly, we are trying to develop a better web presence for this Foundation, and, of calling for further testing of the Shroud.

Of course we would love for you to share the website (www.testtheshroud.com) on any and all of your social media and blogs you may prefer! I need someone like you (active online presence, articulate, opinionated, etc.) telling others about us. We have a group on Facebook (test the shroud) and should be getting one on Google + and Twitter shortly.

Please feel free to email me testtheshroud@gmail.com and, if you would like to discuss this over the phone, I can give out my, or the Foundation's, phone number as well.

Sincerely,

Nick Antonacci
Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation
 

I hope all of my friends and readers will visit the Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation’s website and sign the petition requesting further scientific testing of The Shroud Of Turin. I am not asking you to do anything that I myself will not do. Please do it for God, do it for me, and do it for 
Yoey O’Dogherty!

IT’S DÉJÀ BLEW ALL OVER AGAIN

.
. 
When I learned about this at 1:00 P.M today, my first thought was: I wonder which government agency or combination of government agencies is responsible for this.
.
I expect this story to get weirder and weirder as the days, weeks, and months go on. There will be questions. There will probably be few logical answers. Just call it a “hunch” on my part.
.

Paul Joseph Watson

April 15, 2013 


An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a “drill” was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast.

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15 News, “They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

The news station also reports that Stevenson “thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.”

Stevenson then describes hearing the explosions as he ran away from the scene, having just completed the marathon.

If this report is accurate, it clearly suggests there could have been some degree of prior knowledge of the bombing, which killed two people and injured at least 23.

The fact that the explosions were preceded and overlapped by a "drill" of an almost identical nature mirrors other major terror attacks, such as the 7/7 bombings in London.

It is important to emphasize that the New York Times recently reported that most of the recent domestic terror plots in the United States “were facilitated by the F.B.I.,” suggesting that today’s incident in Boston may have been part of such an operation.

It remains to be seen how the media and the Obama administration will exploit this incident depending who gets the blame, but Rahm Emanuel’s “never let a serious crisis go to waste” advisory is sure to be in play.

More on this story as it develops . . .

INFOWARS.COM - Boston Marathon: Bombing Drill Coincided With Explosions.
.
.
.
Why is it that so often when a major terrorist attack occurs, nearby government employees are conducting some “drill” that seems to mirror the circumstances of the attack? 9/11, the London subway bombing, Sandy Hook Massacre, Boston Marathon Bombing...
.
So, lots of police and National Guard personnel, including bomb-sniffing dogs, couldn’t prevent a man, suspiciously carrying two backpacks, from placing bombs in trash cans?
.
And what about the bombs reportedly discovered before they exploded? And the explosion/fire at the JFK Library? How many villains were involved in this terrorist attack? And how many of them were working for Uncle Sam? As the old TV commercial used to say: The world may never know.

BIG BROWN ‘STUFFS’ HAPPENS (Or, BACK TO THE FU##TURE)

.
No more than a few minutes ago I was searching for a quote amongst my ancient blog bits at ‘STUFFS’ that I could send to a friend in an Email. During my search, I came across an old blog bit (AND the quote I was searching for within it), and rereading that post all these years later, I realized that it is without doubt (in my warped mind, anyway) one of the doggone best blog bits I’ve ever composed!
.
And so, in an exceedingly rare example of metempsychosis, a long-dead (since 2008) ‘STUFFS’ blog bit is being reborn at the animalistic blog ‘FERRET-FACED FASCIST FRIENDS’. Below is the link to (in my opinion) one of my most darkly shining, most Pink Floyd-ishly depressing achievements as a bummed-out blogger. Very little of my mental outlook has changed since the time I posted this blog bit/suicide note...
