AFTER A WELL DESERVED VACATION: THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME

Well I’m back in the office and Hell looks better than it ever did. I am not surprised that after nearly a month away from deadlines and details things on Terra seem to have taken a turn for the worse. Back in what was late August to you, the Living, Cavalor called us into the conference room and told us to get out for at least four weeks. I puzzled a bit and decided I would take my well earned vacation on Terra spending time with the Living and immersing myself in the things that make people tick in the nation of my birth. I had considered New York but then decided to go the Washington, D.C.

If you want to get into the heads of people all you have to do is ask them a simple question, “What do you think of America today?” I got the answers that I expected from some but not from all of them. I met a cab driver who I can now call my friend who is a Democrat that is a member of the TEA Party. He’s the first black TEA partier that could argue his side as well and articulately as I can argue mine as a Liberal. toward the end of my stay in DC we found common ground on many issues. Fewer people need to rely on government as a way of life. Corporations should do more for their employees than for their shareholders. And finally, and more important than all of that shit–people should be more kind to each other.

It was a late summer break of amazing food, interesting people and deep debate in pubs across the nation’s capital. I would like to thank the staff and especially the kitchen staff at The Dubliner in northwest DC. If you have the time drop by and have the Montecristo sandwich and a few pints of Guinness. You will be treated well and if you’re lucky as I was you’ll have a roaring good conversation about how to fix America–from every perspective possible.

Well I’m back as is Diane who went with her lovely spouse to Rham; Robin who spent her month finishing the first draft of her first crime novel; Pain, who did what It always does when a portion of the Collective is set free to do what it pleases, meditate; Cavalor who spent time at home with his wife and three cambions; and the ever tireless and ever political Sarah who wrote two education and welfare bills for an Alliance party member of parliament when she could have been drinking wine and relaxing in luxury with her fiancee, Chef grandee Odamo Sese Omoko. It’s great to be back because Hell is Eternal.

الخلافة الإرهابية ليس هو الحل لمشاكل العالم الإسلامي. الدولة الاسلامية في سوريا فسيكون في هذا دمار المسلمين كشعب. هذه الإرهابية المرتد يجب أن يتوقف

Posted in A MESSAGE TO THE APOSTATES, THE MEDITATORS, THE MUSLIM WORLD on 24/09/2014 by Majordomo Pain

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

ويجري طغت الحلول لمشاكل محنة الرجل العادي في عالم الإسلام من قبل الجبناء الذين تتجاوز إساءة تفسير القرآن. ما يسمى الدولة الإسلامية ليست دولة ولا يفعلون مشيئة الله. في الوقت سيتبين الحق من هذه الحرب التي تشن على أنها حرب ضد الإنسانية نفسه؛ ويأتي العقلاء أن ندرك أن الوسيلة الوحيدة التي يمكن من خلالها حماية الحضارة، وبأن المسلمين الذين يتمسكون الرسالة الحقيقية للإسلام والسلام ومحبة الله ورسوله محمد (qcpn)، هو إزالة هذه المرتدين الذين يدعون أنفسهم دولة إسلامية من عالم الحياة الأولى. نحن، أنفسنا، لتجمع والمتأملين ضد هؤلاء المرتدين ومجموعة خراسان لأنهم يجسدون الشر في شكل الرجال مع أي احترام للحياة الأولى والاعتقاد الأعمى أن الآخرة لها سوف تكون كاملة من النعم على الرغم من كونها أيديهم غارقة في دماء الأبرياء. نيران جهنم تنتظر كل الذين الابتعاد عن السلام. سيتم ملعون كل من شن الحرب ضد الإنسانية إلى النسيان، ويكون لم يسمع منه أو يسمع مرة أخرى.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!

The solutions to the problems of the plight of the common man in the world of Islam are being overshadowed by cowards who go beyond misinterpreting the Qu’ran. The so-called Islamic State is neither a state nor are they doing the will of Allah. In time the Truth of this war they wage will be seen as a war against Humanity itself; rational people have come to realize that the only means by which to protect civilization, and by that Muslims who cling to the true message of Islam, Peace and the Love of Allah and his messenger Muhammad (qcpn), is to remove these apostates who call themselves an Islamic State from the world of the First Life. We, Ourselves, of The Collective and the Meditators are against these apostates and the Khorasan Group because they embody evil in the form of men with no respect for the First life and a blind belief that their Afterlife will be full of blessings despite their hands being soaked in the blood of Innocents. The fires of Hell await all those who turn away from Peace. All who wage war against Humanity will be damned to Oblivion and shall never be heard from or hear again.

THURSDAY COCO INSPIRATION: THE END OF SUMMER 2014: 63 ASHTAQ 3 AS

In a two months or so, in much of the United States, people will be silently wondering, “Where did the summer go?” Last winter was harsh and the coming one threatens to be even harsher in much of the eastern portion of the nation. But for now, the weather is blazing in some parts of America and pleasantly comfortable in the rest so why not relax and enjoy the last holiday of the summer with a gathering of good friends, food and drink.

hindsight 2340

Go out with a bang because soon enough many of you will be shoveling snow and scraping ice off windshields.

Pax Terra!

THE 9TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DIS BRIMSTONE DAILY PITCHFORK

Even here in Hell, people wonder just where the time goes. On 27 August 2005, Pain made the very first post for the digital version of Hell’s leading daily newspaper beginning and odyssey from Blogger to WordPress that finds me here writing today. members of the writing staff and research staff have come and gone. Some, like Diane Valencen have gone and returned.

The very first story we covered was Hurricane Katrina. We asked the same questions about the response and the government’s failure to protect the citizens of New Orleans that everyone else did. As time went on we covered many major stories in the United States especially the Culture Wars. The first story that got us noticed in the wider blogoshpere was the May 2006 murder of Tiffany Souers in Clemson, South Carolina. Her killer, Jerry Buck Inman was arrested in early June and put Robin Naismith Green’s crime reporting front and center.

More stories broke as our political writing moved forward with the full time hiring of Culture Wars reporter Sarah Bloch. The 2006 midterm elections were another step toward Internet success for our staff. A signature piece I wrote during the Blogger days was about Congressman Mark Foley who resigned under a cloud of scandal surrounding House pages.

Following that historic election was another high time for politics in the United States. Both Senator Hillary Clinton and then Senator Barack Obama were running for the nomination of the Democratic Party for President in 2008. I recall the staff meeting the morning of Super Tuesday 2008 when Cavalor Epthith said, “If Obama comes close to being the winner today, he will be President of the United States.” On that long day Obama won more states and delegates but Hillary got more votes. In a midnight editorial The Boss endorsed Barack Obama officially after months of fence sitting.

Then came the economic collapse of 2008 in the late summer. Carlton Pryor, long before the rant of Rick Santelli on CNBC, warned about the dangers of too big to fail, ninja loans and the subprime synthetic derivative housing market. We fought the conservative lies about the cause of the crisis, which of course was a mixture of Wall Street greed and Main Street greed, but was crystallized in a Manhattan Institute piece saying the Community Reinvestment Act caused the crisis. This was the lie and it took years to die.

hindsight 2333
In Hindsight

The biggest story by far was the Boston Marathon bombing last year and we broke the name of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seven minutes before NBC News making it the highest traffic days ever. Oh yeah we presented beauty in the form of nude Human beings from time to time as well. This got a bit out of hand on what we called Porn Sunday while at Blogger and they summarily in June 2010 deleted our blog. Cavalor debated for a few days if we should migrate to another format and we settled on WordPress four years ago. I am still eager, everyday for the next big story from Terra and hopefully it will be my pleasure to bring you the opinions of those in hell on what really matters to the Living for many years to come. And, of course, Jim Hoft is still the stupidest man on the Internet.

Pax Terra!

A FATWA ON THE PRESSING ISSUE IN FERGUSON MISSOURI

Posted in FATWA, MICHAEL BROWN MURDER with tags , , , on 19/08/2014 by Majordomo Pain

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Peace be unto all Human Beings . . .

A question was posed to Us today and The Meditators have taken up this query, “What needs to be done to end the conflict between law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri and those seeking Justice for the Soul of Michael Brown?”

After much deliberation and debate, We, Ourselves, of The Collective and The Meditators offer this fatwa, secure in its Reasoning:

“Arrest Officer Darren Wilson and charge him with the murder of Free Citizen Michael Brown.”

صلى ILA جميع بالبشر. . .

كان سؤالا لبنا اليوم واتخذت المتأملين يصل هذا الاستعلام، “ما يجب القيام به لإنهاء الصراع بين سلطات إنفاذ القانون في فيرجسون وميسوري وأولئك الذين يسعون العدالة لروح مايكل براون؟”

بعد الكثير من المداولات والنقاش، ونحن، أنفسنا، لتجمع والمتأملين تقديم هذه الفتوى، آمنة في تعليلها:

“اعتقال موظف دارين ويلسون واتهامه بجريمة قتل المواطن الحر مايكل براون.”

I puzzled over the word that should end the title for so long that I’ll leave the answer up to you, the reader. Watching events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri has taught me a very valuable lesson over the last week. That lesson is that I cannot understand the situation unless I was actually there. I can draw parallels to many of the missteps taken in the small community to the kidnapping last week of two Amish girls in upstate New York.

Errors are constantly made in situations where a person is confronted with violent crime. The need to make a victim of a crime, as I still believe Michael brown was, appear perfect by his family and horribly flawed to the point of deserving the consequences of their victimhood by others is chief among those errors. Michael Brown, clearly wasn’t a saint, but who among you there on Terra or I here in Hell is? There was something written in a great book about casting the first stone that applies to everyone. There was the narrative of a good kid who was going to college which furled the outrage among progressive bloggers and tweeters which was rekindled by the gleeful “I told you so” chorus from those on the Right after the videotape was released of Brown stealing cigars and shoving a store owner as he and his accomplice fled.

As I watched the video, which matched what we here know happened in the final minutes of Michael Brown’s life, in the conference room with my editor-in-chief, Cavalor Epthith and editorial page editor Diane Valencen, I wondered out loud just what was the purpose of releasing that video. As it stands in 2014 in the United States of America is it simply okay for law enforcement to kill a person because they walked down the street? And if not is it acceptable for the police to release previous actions of the victim to engender sympathy by creating a “thuggish” persona around him or her?

Colorado-Shooter-Poster

These questions bother me because it goes back to the way Americans today deal with the everyday effects that crime and death have on thousands of Americans every day. I saw on Twitter a link to a story that showed how the Aurora, Colorado theater shooter was portrayed the first time the media showed a picture of him. He looked like any other geeky white kid. The first photo I saw of Mike Brown looked terribly imposing. Double standard? I would have to say so.

081614amish

And this finally brings me to the two little Amish girls in New York state. I am glad they are home again with their family. I read where the parents have forgiven their kidnappers and I have also learned where the girls were tragically sexually abused during their 23 hour ordeal. The mother of the 12 and 7 year old said that while she was glad to have her girls back things are not the same as they were. But if these parents who have had their little girls’ lives brutally changed forever have not lost their faith why is it so easy for the the citizens of Ferguson to be vilified for being so frustrated that their native son? To understand how I am looking at this now you have a question to answer. What would your reaction be if the Progressive blogosphere were calling the two girls little whores who really wanted to go off on a sexual escapade in a car with two strangers? Yes, even for me to say such a thing would be pretty shocking. In the end that’s what the conservatives have done with the Mike Brown case over and over again.

hindsight 2326
In Hindsight
Even now, having read to this point the conservatives that come here are saying to themselves, well the Amish didn’t burn their town to the ground or target every car they saw driving by until their girls were returned. That is almost a fair analysis if you value property over people and lucre over life. And here we go again that sentence will turn every conservative mind to the “holocaust of abortion.” And so it goes in 2014 in America the time you have all been waiting for when the tipping point in society was passed and you see the face of who cause the eventual decline into chaos. It is going to be surprising when conservatives see not Rush Limbaugh looking back at them or even some conservative gun loving Oathkeeper who has assassinated a prominent politician. No that person is you right wing “law and order” fanatic. This is your failure and the solution to the problem that has gripped America for the past thirty years, yes another question, “What happens when the peace is breached in an age when the police have the equipment of the military but not the training to deal with a frustrated American public?” Every 2nd amendment and New Testament clinging TEA Party freak ought to be at the barricades with the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, but of course to those bitter clingers this cause is not their cause as Cliven Bundy’s was for reasons to them that are as plain as the nose on your face.

Pax Terra!
