Sunday Sermonette (Part 2)

The End is Near

Blowing the Shofar (ram’s horn) to usher in judgment on
(Fox News) Some religious folks are predicting the end of the world on September 23. This coincides with the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah, which will begin in the evening of Wednesday, September 20 and ends in the evening of Friday, September 22. Rosh Hashanah is the warning of judgment (Yom Kippur) ten days following and the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord when people are judged. Ominous stuff. 
Maybe North Korea will launch a nuclear missile at somebody and the retaliation (end of the world for them) will sound like the blowing of many ram’s horns as the American missiles augur in along ballistic trajectories? Who can say?
If you predict that the end of the world is coming every day, sooner or later, you’ll be accurate. Of course it could end for any of us at any given moment (ask not for whom the bell tolls).
Where will you be on September 23? I’ll be in AZ up on the White Wolf Mine property, not because I think that the world will be burned to a cinder on Sept 23, but because I planned to be up there hanging out and talking to people about the progress (and lack of progress) that I’m seeing. And because of the whole International Date Line thing, Sept 23 for me is Sept 24 for people on the other side of the rock, which means while I’m hanging out, being cool, all of them could be dead. 
sic transit gloria mundi 
Is Cotton Evil? 
Some university students think so. My preferred shirts are all made of rip-stop cotton. What does that say about me? Separate from the referenced article, there have been suggestions made that Tylenol sold in California is racist because you ‘pick cotton’ (packing material) out of the bottle to get to the pills – thus it’s demeaning to inner city people.
What about Q-tips? Are they next? I wouldn’t be surprised. They’re like the banana peel in the tree. If an inner city college student sees a Q-tip, they need to run to their safe space. Who can blame them?
I can see Middle Eastern people rejecting wool as clothing material because some terrorist’s love interest had to be sheared so that you could have a nice wool suit. It provides impetus to Islam to wipe out more people…

This just in…

  1. Oh, yes. Cotton is pure evil. And don't get me started on wool, it's the devil's fabric. The emerging snow flake culture has now deemed that just about everything we wear either causes climate change or was involved in white supremacy.

    Before we know it, we'll all be walking around naked. Everyone except Rosie O'Donnell, of course, she's exempt for obvious reasons.

  2. Polyester and other oil-based fabrics are evil for obvious reasons – they create global warming and will either turn the Earth into a vast desert or a water world…depending on who you talk to.

    Rosie wears canvas, I think. I haven't heard that it is politically correct. I expect that the progressives will start wearing hemp – a by-product of their dope habit.

  3. It's entertaining at some level. I find it difficult to predict how they will top themselves, but they manage to.

  4. If the item about the statues is true, it wouldn't surprise me. Hubby predicted when ISIS (or Al Queida, or the Taliban) first destroyed those giant ancient statues of Buddah or whomever; that it was going to lead to more historical destruction.

    And it has. Even here in America. Sad.

    Tylenol is not the only medicine that comes with cotton in it. Good grief.

    Guess I need to add q-tips to my prep stock.

  5. Q-tips may ward off evil. It's not a bad theory if a banana peel will do the same thing. It used to be a cross and garlic, but times have changed.

  6. Hemp has been the fabric of choice for the enlightened prog for quite some time. Now they've added bamboo to the chosen fabrics.
    Just out of curiosity,
    how do you let'r rip in ripstop cotton?

  7. Thought provoking post. Here in Hill County we still grow cotton and have Confederate war memorials.

    No one's attempted to remove either thing.

    Weird, eh?

  8. Ah, yes, bamboo is progressive! So is sea weed but I haven't seen fabrics made of it yet. That may be coming.

  9. A progressive army will form in Austin soon, led by a repellant clown and they'll head to Hill Country to sort you all out. That's not a prophecy. It's just a trend.

  10. In the first place, cotton just sounded unbelievable for me. Then I realized that there's practically nothing left, which is not being judged.
    Hopefully, the prediction is just another one of those that gets disproved.

    I hope you're doing well LL. It's been a while, and hearing from you feels good.
    Take care!

  11. Seaweed fabrics been around for a while, too. "Clothing made from seaweed fibres in this case in a Olivier Lapidus studio. Seaweed is a type of marine algae. Its fibres are strong, cheap, biodegradable, and are also a renewable resource. Lapidus' spring 1997 collection used a total of 25 kilogrammes of seaweed fibres."
