Joel Osteen is just one of many pastoral and evangelical con artists operating in the Christian religion. The saddest thing is that many people who have seen this meme of humor and truth [which I did not design but found on the internet] don’t mind at all the workings – or the wealth – of men and women like Osteen. If I had Osteen’s charisma and good looks (because I already have sufficient Bible knowledge, the public speaking talent and the ability to bullshit a mutherfucker on a dime), I too could get filthy rich by conning a bunch of people about the existence of mythological characters, places and the supposed happening of events noted in a man-written, multi-edited best-seller book called “The Holy Bible”. My mom used to always say (and she halfway expected) that I should be a preacher. (Sorry, Mom; having two in the family is enough!)
Regarding men and women like Joel Osteen, here’s some “old school” Philly street boy advice from yours truly: “Blame the person who got played, not the player. He (or she) is simply skilled at what they do. That’s it. It’s not the player’s fault if you got or are getting played, especially when someone wise tries to warn and school you about the player and his/her game way beforehand.”
Now, each of you who had worked so damn hard to fake being nice and sweet and “filled with Christmas joy and cheer” can begin reverting to your regular, better-known and much-easier-to-recognize (and appreciate) asshole-ish selves.
And please, try to do it before the year is out. Seriously.
When you’re damn serious about political debate moderation you don’t fuck around with hiring soft-spoken, timid and/or easily intimidated men and women to serve as debate moderators. Nah…fuck that. You get…Samuel L. Jackson!
*Sigh* I realize this video clip – while seemingly misogynistic, is humor. Of course it is. Still, it gives me cause to express a few things that came to mind while watching this somewhat-funny video clip.
You see, out of the few females to whom I am related (e.g., my foster mothers, sisters, nieces and cousins) and out all of the females whom I either lived with, dated, had for fuck-buddies or the one to whom I was once married, none were morning coffee drinkers – at least they weren’t around me. That worked well for me because I am not a coffee drinker and very much abhor the odor of scented brown water cooking in the morning. Thus, I’ve never met any female (or any male, for that matter) who acted like the woman in the video; persons who for years I’ve been calling “crazy mandatory morning coffee drinking muthafuckas”. Now, as far as the early menstrual cycle days of those females so mentioned is concerned, I think this video holds a great deal of humorous truth. *chuckles*
BTW: I don’t hate people who drink coffee. However, many of them who “simply need” or who “have to have” their morning coffee each day “just to get their day started”, tend to get on my goddamn nerves with their “I gotta have my morning coffee or my day… along with that of everyone else, will be fucked if I don’t!” childish rants, behavior and attitude. Yes, I said it; and I’m not apologizing if anyone reading this article happens to take offense. Consider that I have probably held my attitude against those “crazy mandatory morning coffee drinking muthafuckas” a lot longer than some of those [who have chosen to take offense] have been drinking it! I certainly am not going to change it now.
