Uncle Paul’s Rant for 04/18/2018

Good Afternoon, my dear friends, family and mishpocheh!

Today is a day, which seems to come all too often, for the past year and a half…  One can either laugh uproariously at the slapstick and ineptitude, or one can rage… I expend entirely too much energy with the latter, so I’m just gonna go with the former today…

I grew up, the son of a quite successful attorney, as well as I am a proud veteran of the US Army, who possessed, until my honorable discharge, a valid Top Secret/Crypto security clearance…

What I learned from my beloved late Pop, as well as from my own military service, is that a client, or a soldier, who doesn’t know how to keep her/his big mouth shut is either a client that needs to find another less-scrupulous counselor, or someone that needs either a quick discharge or a seriously different MOS… maybe as a cook in some rear-echelon unit with no chance of any classified information around…

Here we are… with a dude that, while continuing to insist that the allegations of Ms. “Stormy Daniels” never happened, yet can’t stop tweeting about her attorney, with lots and lots of invective and bile…

https://crooksandliars.com/2018/04/trump-cant-stop-incriminating-himself-part

Dude, here’s a clue… if it never happened, and if you’re such an innocent man, act like it, and shut the hell up, OK?  (Obviously, the schmuck isn’t bright enough to understand that he’s proving himself guilty with every word, with every tweet, and it involves much, much more than his getting his itty-bitty repulsive stinger wet with a porn actor and director.)

And, yet, I know they are there in my circles, and can only assume they are in the on- or off-line circles of my faithful readers, so many, who claim the label of “Born-again, Spirit-filled Christians” for whom such things are “nothing-burgers.”

As recently adopted, I’ll no longer ask of such functional morons, “What the hell will it take?”

They’ve proven by their social-media presence, and their words and deeds that, if nothing else within the past 1 1/2 years will puncture the bubble of willful ignorance with which they’ve surrounded themselves, nothing ever will…

For such people, as I’ve said before, no matter how vile, venal or foul their heroes with feet of clay show themselves, we to their left just have to be orders of magnitude worse… Their “pastors,” favorite pundits and hypocritical politicians have assured them that this is so.

To those of my personal circles possessed of some reason and sense, as well as true decency, I’ll remind you today, as always…

Keep Resisting!

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 04/17/2018

Good Day, my friends, family and mishpocheh!

 

First off, thank you to all who brought to my attention that the NYT link for VP Wallace’s article has issues… please refresh your browser and try again… a dear friend provided me with a link that actually does work.

Now… on to today…

I never have been, and never will be one that would insist that one must have served in uniform to be a proud citizen…

But it seems that the most uber-patriotic, flag-wrapped, cross-bearing, gun-humping, Trump-loving among us seem to be those that had other priorities than to ever have considered honorable military service as a life option.

There are those of my circles, and at least a couple with whom I did serve in the military, who get a bit of a pass from me… One is a quite ill old man, for whom the 20+ years of exposure to microwave radiation seems to have taken its toll, and another who, back in the day seemed to be capable of coherent speech, so maybe the years have just not been kind to him…

(NB:  please understand, my gentle readers, that I mean this as no sort of “ageism.” I am 61 and not in the greatest of health… I’ve also been under successful treatment for more than 20 years for major depressive disorder and the PDD-NOS end of the autistic spectrum… nevertheless, as stated in one of my recent musings, with my military creds enumerated, somehow I was able to be a proud soldier and a father, so some things are just conscious choices, in what ever faulty way I tried…)

And, just to say, that I have made a conscious decision to take this year off, as a new homeowner, and a guy that really needs to get the album finished (“Full Circle,” with the final track, as dedicated to my late Mama, “Norma’s Waltz” has to be done and ready for mastering before anything else), but intend to spend my 60’s finishing my BA and getting my aching old ass into law school… Some of us actually don’t seem to need to spend our autumn years in seclusion,  weariness and dumbass rage, based upon talk radio and only one source for television “news,” y’know?

But, some of the most rabidly right-wing folks have willingly and enthusiastically adopted an entire narrative that has become an idol, as much as any statuary or iconography could ever be… A mindset can become an idol, and, for many, it is obvious to me that it has become such.

I have many friends and family who claim the label of Christian… I have a dearest sister-in-law who has been a dedicated Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, another dear friend who is a Western Orthodox Bishop, another friend who is a ThD and an ordained Baptist minister, I have family members who are devoted to the ideal of being what their faith requires, and many others…

I have stated before and elsewhere, that, although I walked the American-style Evangelical Protestant path in the past, with many other things attached to it, stated in earlier blogs, I have found my truest home in a liberal expression of the Jewish faith of my late father, grandfather, and ancestors… It works for me, and I’ll discuss the specifics privately…

I mean no insult towards those who do their best to follow the path of Christianity, in whichever expression, attempting to put into practice the teachings of Rabbi Y’shua… It is what speaks to them, and is where they have found their own spiritual home…

Those that inspire what I can only describe, much to my embarrassment, as rage and fury are they who insist on their FB profile political description as “Very Conservative Republican,” who further self-describe as “Born-again Spirit-filled Christian,” and are devoted adherents to an entire narrative, apart from which, by their words and behavior, one is either deluded, deceived, or downright demonic.

Per such people, one must attach to the spiritual thing, slavish devotion to Republican Party politics, above all, and no matter how vile, venal or foul the subject or the candidate, one must believe that only the 2nd Amendment is to be taken without any interpretation, one must disapprove of a certain medical procedure that has been legal since 1973, while also denying benefits to the babies once born… with an additional thing that one must approve completely of capital punishment, all the while insisting on some label of “pro-life”…  And one must insist that any other faith path other than their own American-style Evangelical Protestantism is unworthy of consideration or even recognition in any way, and with attempts to force our purposely secular government to inscribe such into law.

I’ve been seeing folks across the web today for whom my description describes perfectly… Some I either know personally, or have known in the past… others that are commenters on various threads, some claiming veterans’ status, others that it’s just “really?”

I tend to use the word “narrative” quite often, as, to me, that is precisely what it is…

Some may differ in specific spiritual path, so it’s not just the, as I phrase it, “American-style Evangelical Protestantism” (although for so many, that’s a big part of it), but the major points are identical… and these are people that so loudly proclaim that they’re “thinking for themselves.”

These tend to be people that have, some for at least a decade, some much longer than that, projected their inadequacies, paranoia and authoritarian-follower views on us to their left… or, really, to the left of Genghis Khan, and we each have them in our circles, whether on or offline…  These are they who tend to refer to us, in their opposition, as “snowflakes,”  yet who are so quick to take umbrage at any slight, real or perceived.  (for me, there’s no “perceived” about it… I’m quite open about my contempt, which they have earned, and will state it here, so there’s no confusion, that they’re full of shit and I make no apologies for saying it.)

So, now that I’ve wearily vented my spleen, I as always encourage you, as really the hair-on-fire hysteria shows that we really are winning:

Keep Resisting!

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 04/13/2018

Good Evening, my friends, family and mishpocheh!

I read a brilliant and astute Op-Ed today from the New York Times.  (y’know… that “liberal” news source that the current occupant of the Oval Office always prepends with “failing.”)

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Vice President, Henry A. Wallace, was asked to write an article as an answer to whether or not he thought there were fascists in America…

He did, and here’s the link to his original editorial:

http://www.truth-out.org/archive/component/k2/item/45300:henry-a-wallace–the-danger-of-american-fascism

(editorial note:  have edited the link… this one apparently works)

Henry A. Wallace’s grandson, Henry S. Wallace, who is a lawyer and a co-chairman of the Wallace Global Fund, a foundation founded by his grandfather wrote an Op-Ed piece for the NYT and I offer the link here:

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/05/12/opinion/american-fascism-trump.html

Now, I’ll offer that today’s fascists aren’t wearing flashy Hugo Boss-designed uniforms and herding us Jews into the gas chambers (although I’ll offer only a caveat of “yet”), nor are they speaking Italian as Mr. Mussolini’s followers, but the similarities are horribly telling.

We have a disturbingly huge number of our fellow citizens who are so totally sold-out to an entire narrative, which incorporates ideas that, unless one subscribes to a specific interpretation of American-style Evangelical Protestantism (which includes slavish devotion to Republican politics, no matter what, a very narrow interpretation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution… or rather, the only amendment or clause in the document that requires no interpretation whatsoever, and is to be taken precisely as the bare text is, and all the rest of the crap by which they define themselves), then one is an enemy of our nation and really, only worthy of assassination, if they thought they could get away with it.

Now, I’m not one that believes that one must serve in uniformed military service in order to be a loyal citizen, but I can’t help noticing that the most rigid adherents to the vibe, of my experience, seem to have had other priorities than military service, but seem to be the most vocal among the 101st Chairborne Rangers, Internet Division, Facebook Company…

For what it’s worth (and, please… no “Thank you for your service” platitudes… no thanks are necessary… I saw my service as my duty and my honor, thank you), here are my creds at my Honorable Discharge in 1982:


Rank: SGT/E-5

Character of Service: Honorable

Re-enlistment code: 1A

MOS: 16C20 – Nike Hercules Fire Control Operator/Crew Chief (Nuclear)

Security Clearance: Top Secret/Crypto


Yet, for some, as I proudly and generally vote Democratic, I am somehow a “leftist traitor,” a “libtard,” and even worse…

I don’t hold any of my political positions lightly, and, when things don’t tend to fit my personal narrative, I examine the narrative itself, rather than judge everything else based upon such narrative.

If anyone who reads this blog is at all honest with others and with themselves, I beg you to read Mr. Wallace’s piece linked above…

But if your gut-reaction is merely that it conflicts with your own personal narrative, I’d offer that you need to do some self-examination…

If those who read this subscribe to a belief system that has issues with idolatry, I would offer that you examine that not all idolatry involves statuary… Ideas and belief systems, if they are more important than actually worshiping the One who is the Judge of all, then it’s idolatry.

If those who read this do not subscribe to any spiritual or religious observance, or subscribe to any other non-monotheistic path, yet still insist that everything to which you subscribe regarding unquestioning support for our current situation  is correct without any discussion necessary, I’d offer that you have adopted a path that might as well be religious… if you don’t believe in a soul, I’d offer that you have sold your minds to as rigid a mindset as any fundamentalist.

So, as always, I wearily offer to all that you need to

Keep Resisting!

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 04/12/2018

Good Day, my friends, family and mishpocheh!

OK… I’ve made a few comments on the walls of various friends, and across a few blogs, but dammit, yer ol’ Uncle Paul is seriously pissed off…

About what am I pissed off, you ask?  Thank you for asking…

My disgust and my rage is about hypocrisy, today…

I am honest enough with myself and my own proclivities that I recognize my own ability towards hypocrisy, as every human on the planet is equally susceptible…

Difference is, when it is pointed out to me, and with due consideration and thought, if such critique is apropos, I do my damndest to root it out and try to do better…

I am not one that is so sold out to my own internal narrative that I believe any critique is an attack or a threat…  I view such things as an opportunity to learn and to try to be better than I am… I am not, nor have I ever been the sort about whom I will be venting today that “I’m not perfect, I’m just forgiven.”  That’s a line of bullshit and a cop-out… I know I’m not perfect, but I welcome any opportunity to be better than I am, no matter from where the critique comes…

Now, here we are today…

The past couple of days, I’ve been observing some folks whom I once thought I knew, and whom I once at least respected… These are those that are all about a specific interpretation of American-style Evangelical Protestantism which subscribes to an entire narrative that includes 2nd-amendment fundamentalism, absolute Republican politics, no matter what (apparently subscribing to some idea that GOP means “G-d’s Own Party”), hatred of anything hinting at liberal politics and ideas, and the rest of the whole package of crap that defines them…

These are people, my friends, that insist that we to the left of Genghis Khan are the enemies of the nation (yes… I’ve seen those exact words applied to anyone that claims the Democratic Party… ), who also so loudly proclaim that they are “thinking for themselves” while adhering to the exact same narrative as everyone else in their in-groups.

Not all of them claim Evangelical Protestantism, it is true (I’ve seen at least one or two that claim Judaism as their faith path, but I for one disown them… just sayin’)… However, the sources they use for information, or rather, mis-information are exactly the same, and everything that doesn’t fit the vibe is “fake news.”  (which phrase would have never come from their mouths were it not for a specific orange, bombastic asshole who’s applied it to any information that doesn’t show him in a good light.)

Now… for anyone that is at least fair-minded, I ask you…

If even a whiff of anything at all that has come out about Mr. Trump were to have come out regarding President Obama, (and, oh, my… even today there have been reports of payoffs for silence regarding all sorts of nasty things regarding #45) his wife or his family, does anyone seriously think that the man wouldn’t have been impeached, if not assassinated?  Seriously?

Of course, some in my circles insist that it’s not hypocrisy, as Pres. Obama, Sec. Clinton, or others really were and are all the horrific things they accuse, and Mr. Trump is somehow as pure as the driven snow, so that makes it all different…

I saw someone yesterday that I once knew gloating that he was 100% behind Mr. Trump before the Cohen raid, and now he’s 150% behind him… This in the midst of all sorts of pious platitudes about Easter and the itinerant rabbi/carpenter he claims as his “Lord and Savior.” …

Well, folks, I’m Jewish, and haven’t even walked his path in decades (and that, really only to try to save a marriage and other priorities that have been effectively treated by medical expertise and great meds), but I do seem to remember that that particular rabbi had quite a bit to say regarding hypocrisy and hypocrites…

But, again, apparently it’s not hypocrisy, as they’re correct, we’re wrong, and that settles all arguments.

Sorry, but bullshit… hypocrisy is hypocrisy…

But, as I’ve said, such are the sorts of folks that will insist on being buried wearing their MAGA ballcaps, and will, in their own final “exit interviews” with the Supreme Author of Justice insist that it’s someone else’s fault why they’re being cast out for their commission of the true “sin of Sodom.”


Ezek. 16:49-52:  Only this was the sin of your sister Sodom: arrogance!  She and her daughters had plenty of bread and untroubled tranquility; yet she did not support the poor and the needy.  In their haughtiness, they committed abomination before Me; and so I removed them, as you saw.  Nor did Samaria commit even half your sins.  You committed more abominations than they, and by all abominations that you committed you made your sisters look righteous.  Truly, you must bear the disgrace of serving as your sisters’ advocate: Since you have sinned more abominably than they, they appear righteous in comparison.  So be ashamed and bear your disgrace, because you have made your sisters look righteous.


But, since I, as a liberal Jewish man, refuse to subscribe to their bullshit, and have become an apostate in the eyes of so many, what the hell do I know?

I suppose I could go on and quote verbatim the bullshit I’ve seen this week from some I once thought I knew, but I won’t… such things will never convince such people of their own hypocrisy, and, as said, G-d Himself could shout it to them in unambiguous words, but, since it wouldn’t fit the narrative they’ve lived for decades, they’d shout that His words were deluded, deceived or downright demonic all the way to hell…  May they go there, and as soon as possible.

I do offer this link from someone perhaps more articulate than I to describe the sort of mindless drones about whom I’m venting today:

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/02/insider-explains-rural-christian-white-america-dark-terrifying-underbelly/#.Ws7w6YC-xps.facebook

<sigh>

OK… for those who’ve followed along this far in my rant, I continue to encourage you to

Keep Resisting!

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 04/02/2018

Good Day, my friends, family and mishpocheh!

To those among my family and friends who share my faith path, I wish you a blessed Pesach (Passover) week…

May it be a time for family, friends, for remembrance and renewal, and a time to remember when our people left slavery, and embarked on a 40-year-journey to what really matters.

To my friends who celebrated Easter yesterday, may it have been a day equally for family, friendship, and a remembrance that death is not final, and the best is yet to come.

Now… on to business, as horrid a business as it may be, and as weird a time as all this has become and promises to progress on that path.

(C’mon, now… no matter what, those of you who long for at least a bit of the “No Drama Obama years, raise your hand, and the rest of you are either lying, are terrified of what others may think, or are too sold out to your narrative to care about.)

So, on the list of “Making America Great Again” is the orange one’s mangling of what should have been a joyful and fun thing for kids on the WH lawn…

Before he admonished the kids (who really don’t know Trump from anything) to clean up after themselves, he launched in to some thing, as self-congratulatory as always, talking to the kids about our economy (which he is just making better than it’s ever been), what a loser his predecessor was, and why he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread… In other words, Trump being Trump, but this time to a bunch of kids who just wanted to go hunt for some eggs and eat some candy…

Yeah… what a hero…

Then, he retreated to his man-cave, and engaged in a tirade-by-Twitter that was, as usual, semi-coherent, all over the map, but mostly spelled correctly… (unlike some of my personal acquaintance who, since the dude got laid by a porn actor, he’s just the greatest thing ever, although they couldn’t express their adoration in a way that indicated any degree of education)…

I stated some time back that I would quit asking “what will it take?” as it’s been proven…

Since the bastard ran and “won” as a Republican, to them, he’s orders of magnitude better than we to their left, who are “baby-killing, atheist, leftist-traitor Democrats” so what would be the point… Some are as they are, and as they’ve been for decades, and, as they’ve got so many years invested in the narrative, in for a penny, in for a pound… can’t change whom they are  (actually, they don’t choose to, so there’s that), so just damn the torpedoes and full-speed ahead…

Never mind that there are young people, terrified of being shot… “It’s mah raht” and screw the kids… and most of those subscribing to that are textbook chickenhawks, who never chose to serve in uniform, preferring, instead, to engage in what they’ve called for years “ministry,” yet now are all about the troops, but screw the vets… and are all about cheap and easy answers for complex questions… Their “theology” is nothing better than some “altar-call fire-escape” (no matter how noble they attempt to make it sound), all about the fetus but the hell with the born-child and its mother, and, really, let’s face it, all about mankind but screw the individual… 2nd Amendment fundamentalism has, equally, been placed in the package of crap, so there’s that as well.

(Note, I make no statement regarding any folks who view Y’shua as their messiah, and do their best to live out his teaching as best they can… and I have and still know many for whom that applies, and I am honored by their friendship)

I am, though, pissed-off beyond measure at those for whom an entire narrative is all that matters, and any opposition is marking someone as any number of insults… “libtard,  “traitor,” “leftist,” “snowflake,” “buttercup,” and the list goes on…

The dude you claim as your “Lord” must be so very proud of you…

Here’s a few links regarding this weekend’s Twitter-tirades, straight from the stunted thumbs of the orange bastard so many claim as some kind of hero, and for other things I’ve stated hereon.

(and, just to offer that, if you’re more offended by a few bits of profanity, and my true views of the bastard currently presuming to the Oval Office than you are at the actual verifiable, documented and very real travesties fomented in our name, then you’ve got bigger problems than me and my big and disrespectful mouth)

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/sarah-sanders-democrats-tired-winning-trump-killed-daca-hurting-people/

(as a point, her boss assured our nation we’d be winning so much we’d be sick of it…  OK… he was half-right… don’t think I’d call all this fun as “winning,” but I’m pretty damned sick of it, so there’s that)

And the list, as it always does, is tiresome, but does go on… If you’re willing to learn, you can find the rest of the whole gory story for yourselves…

But, I still remain (perhaps unrealistically) hopeful, and encourage you all to

Keep Resisting!

(it is making a difference, however hopeless it may seem)

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 03/31/2018

Holy Week Edition

(such as it is)

Good Day, Gut Shabbos, Blessed Pesach and Happy Easter, my dear friends and mishpocheh!

One of those days when it’s as it so often  has become… where to start?

Well, first of all, there’s today… Another Saturday where the Orange Julius Caesar is seemingly without adult supervision (Ivanka and Jared are home observing the Shabbat, and enjoying Pesach (Passover), and Gen. Kelley seems to have slept in, or has just given up…) and those stunted little thumbs have been busy…

Another Saturday with an unhinged, uninformed, insulting and just damned ridiculous Twitter-tantrum from the jackass who still presumes he’s an effective, literate, informed, and badass President… the best of all the 44 that preceded him…  and only hires the best people  (but, it appears that, since he hasn’t seemed to get it right the first time, his cabinet is increasingly populated with 2nd- and 3rd-best… so much for that, and thus another “theory” o’er thrown…)

Just for starters, I offer this… the “Easter Greeting” given by the orange asshole:

/29683133_615020755501243_6112619762950183654_n.png

 

But yeah… we didn’t elect a “Pastor in Chief,” yet every single thing the man’s predecessor said or did marked him as “Nicolai, the Anti-Christ”… so which is it?  Can’t have it both ways, as much as you mindless morons insist we can…

Hey, “pastor,” pundit and politician have assured you you’re on the right path, so what the hell do we know?

Dude got laid by a porn actor, so that means he’s a manly, studly bon vivant who only has our nation’s best interest in mind, yes?

(yeah… I kinda threw up in my mouth a little, so don’t feel bad, but I’ve seen pretty much that, from some for whom it isn’t even an issue how low the bar’s been set…)

“Bar?  What bar?  He’s making America great again, and you’re just a leftist traitor!”

Then there’s this, from this morning:

Just part of Trump’s weekly Twitter meltdown, when he’s without adult supervision…

And, should you wish, and should your digestion be able to handle it, I can offer you much, much more, just from this morning’s Twitter meltdown, but I really hope you’ll just take my word for it… I really get creeped out just sharing the crap…

Y’know, this is supposed to be the holiest weekend for 2 major faith paths, but Yeesh… there’s this guy, that so many are convinced is orders of magnitude better than we to their left, and it’s obvious that, if nothing has convinced them up until now, nothing ever will…

As I’ve stated, these are they who, as they’re being cast out for what Prophet Ezekiel rightfully called out as the actual sin of Sodom… (Ezek. 16:49… look it up), they will fall, wearing their made-in-China red ballcaps, shouting “MAGA!” and insisting that their misfortune is the fault of the Clintons, “gay marriage” (actually just marriage, rightfully seeking their unions to be seen and recognized as equal as any between any hetero couple), abortion, liberals, and the black guy who preceded their beloved Trump…

But for the rest of you, my dear friends, faithful readers, family and mishpocheh, I as always, implore you to:

Keep Resisting!

we really are making an impact!

Uncle Paul’s Rant for 03/26/2018

Good Day, my friends and mishpocheh!

I hope this finds you well and as happy as you will permit yourselves to be, under current life-circumstance…

Me?  Well, I deeply and abjectly adore our adopted forever home of NW Albuquerque, but early spring and early fall play hell with me…

Why, you ask?  Well… let’s explore that there are valid reasons why I haven’t imbibed a shot of gin in almost 40 years… the “evergreen” flavoring is juniper oil… Owing to a severe juniper allergy, I don’t consider projectile vomiting and bed for 3 days with hives as any kind of party… Juniper grows natively here, and, while I thought it was only the oil that freaked me out, apparently the pollen does as well… in the extremely high range for today, so it’s a little weird…

Nevertheless, and now that I’ve got the kvetching out of my system, I found an interesting article on a blog of which I’ve been a subscriber for way more than a decade…

It happens to be about a man who’s in the running with Louie Gohmert as the stupidest and most bigoted member of the House…

It interested me, as I made a mistake yesterday, freely admitted, that the dear young Ms. Emma Gonzales’ flag patch was the flag of Puerto Rico…

Rather, it is the flag of Cuba, and there are so many that are trying to make political hay at her expense…

The noble, dear, and outspoken young woman is of Cuban heritage… That’s it… that’s all there is…

Yet those such as Cong. King, (how weird is that… should be King Kong, but he’s not all that) and others of my personal circles that seem to think she’s some sort of Castro Marxist…

Understand, my friends, that I have read the writings of Marx and Engels, and find nothing objectionable there… just many things I believe are unrealistic and quite utopian…

But such mindless idiots, entirely sold out to a narrative that, if dissed in any way, shape, or form, brands one as some sort of baby-killing, atheist, horrible person…

Rep. King showed his ass, and gave voice to the semi-literate, barely coherent jackasses we each have within our FB friend-list, or offline circles of life…

So, here’s a great article about King’s willful ignorance, which displays the willful ignorance and willful blindness among entirely too many among our circles…

Never forget that semi-literate, barely-coherent, obviously mis- or uneducated schmuck on your friend list is also, presumably, an adult (while obviously never having grown up) and that person votes…

Don’t stand on your ideological purity… dammit, show up and vote!

Here in NM, the voting for the primary is June 5… I’m gonna be there as soon as the polling place opens.


I’ve become aware that some of my faithful readers are unaware that the “Crooks and Liars” reference next line down is actually a web-link…

Please do me the honor of clicking on the link and reading the article…

Thank you!


Crooks and Liars re: Steve King 

 

Have a wonderful day, friends and mishpocheh, and never, ever forget:

Keep Resisting!
