Anonymous asked: My backyard deck is sagging in the middle. I noticed the supporting block under the middle post was broken. Any suggestions?

You got to get a jack first.  Take a strong piece of wood and place in on the jack and pump up the deck.  Make sure it’s on a safe foundation.  Then you got to get some small stones, and another supporting block of course.  Put the stone down and the new supporting stone on top, then lower the jack.  Good luck!  The poor you will have with you always, how long are you going to have me?

Anonymous asked: Dear Jesus, Was Muhammad a decent guy? A good dresser?

Um..let us see.  According to the wiki, he wasn’t born until 570 A.D.  That’s 570 years after the B.C. era.  Before Christ.  I’m Christ, and I didn’t live 570 years.  So I didn’t know the guy.  I’m sure he was ok, probably getting some bad press here and there.  I know what that’s like!  As if I ordered the ‘inquisition!’  As for the dressing, no idea either.  Never seen the guy.  No idea what he looks like even.

Artists have a vested interest in our believing in the flash of revelation, the so-called inspiration… shining down from heavens as a ray of grace. In reality, the imagination of the good artist or thinker produces continuously good, mediocre or bad things, but his judgment, trained and sharpened to a fine point, rejects, selects, connects… All great artists and thinkers are great workers, indefatigable not only in inventing, but also in rejecting, sifting, transforming, ordering.

Ego’s are like rocks in the river. The water is the truth. The Ego’s get in the way, and divert the truth, but the truth don’t care. Truth is going to flow right around the rocks, and get to the ocean. It’s best to be a twig or a leaf or something like that. Go with flow! Enjoy the ride! But sometimes even a twig can get held up by a rock, or some old fallen tree, and that’s kind of sad, because the twig wants to go with the flow but is stuck on some assholes Ego. I guess fallen trees are like Ego’s too, except they will rot sooner than a rock, but a rock will crumble also, sooner or later. The worlds got nothing but time. Have you seen the Grand Canyon? That was all a bunch of Ego’s once.- Garret Morris

Listen, let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater here. There’s some good positve messages, you know, like the lady with the oil bottles, you know, just collect the bottles and the oil will come, God told her, but maybe not ‘God’, but that’s how it’s told now. She heard a voice tell her not to worry, get the bottles. Or Noah, you know, like I can imagine some guy building a boat on his front lawn and the town thinks he’s nuts but he had a premonition, you know, gut feeling over took him, so he built a boat then when the rains came he got a couple of his goats and sheep on there. Not all the animals in the world, that’s crazy impossible. It was a local thing. He didn’t collect every species. Darwin collected more species than Noah did, for Christ’s sake.- Charles Lindbergh

'Sin Tax' Gasoline Investors

Since it’s becoming apparent that the recent spike in gas prices is not so much market driven but investor driven it’s time to use a common social engineering technique to help control the impact of betting on gasoline’s future price has on this society:  The ‘Sin Tax’.  

Much like taxes on cigarettes and, ironically, gasoline at the pumps, a say 30% to 40%
