The contact form here on my blog gets rather little use. Most people who have something to say will say it in post comments, or email me directly (providing they have my address). The other day I received a rather strange email which was posted from the contact form.
The message was unsolicited. It was from a person I’d never heard of. I don’t know if the person used their real name, but they did use a valid, working email address. I replied to the contact form email and received a reply in return. In the event that this person is not who he says he is, I intend to leave his surname unpublished. For now, I’ll just call him Kevin.
If he’s using the correct name, I’m thinking that he may be a guy who claims to be “the one man who’s seen: The face and the form of Father God. The face and the form of the Devil.” Certainly no delusions there, right? Let’s see what this particular evangelical conspiracy nut had to say. I’ll break it up with my own commentary so as not to flood your brain with too much tin-foil-hat-crazy at any one time.
Hi Dan J,
Whatz-up? Liken the change so far? Do you think I could get a free $bi!!ion$ or so or is that reserved for the politically connected filthy rich? See, looks to me like economist John Maynard Keynes had it pigeon holed when he said, “There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction and it does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”
Wow. Did he really type “Whatz-up?”? Yeah, he did. If he’s trying to sound all ‘hip’ and ‘with it’ so he can be down with all the ‘jive talk’ the young folks are using on this Internet thingy, then he’s already failed miserably.
Let’s see: “Liken the change so far?” I really think he needs to invest in a good dictionary, and learn how to use it. The word ‘liken’ is used to compare two things. For example, I would say, “I liken this email that I received to a pile of steaming dog shit that I found on my lawn: It’s not earth-shattering, but it stinks like shit.” I could hazard a guess that he meant to use a contraction for the verb ‘liking’, again in some vain attempt to sound ‘hip’.
I’m also going to have to assume that he’s thinking because I’m rather liberal that I’m a big Obama supporter. Obama is a politician. I have a dislike of politicians that crosses party lines. I’m a Socialist, not a Democrat. I prefer the leading liberals to the neo-cons, and I’m not going to kid myself by thinking that any member of the Socialist Party is going to snag a high-profile national office any time this century. I’m also a pragmatist.
Another wow! I don’t know about the rest of you, but the term ‘$bi!!ion$’ just jumps right out and screams ‘n00b’, when I see it.
As for the quote from Keynes, I don’t particularly give a shit about Keynesian economics. I’m guessing that the author of the email doesn’t either. He probably just read the quote on a web site somewhere and it fit his preconceived notions, so he decided to use it.
Now the question would seem to be, what is the purpose of overturning the existing basis of society?
Ahhh, that is the question, isn’t it?
Well, that wasn’t my question. My question actually had to do with whether or not the author had taken his meds in the days leading up to typing this missive. The author seems to think that money is the existing basis of society. I guess he’s a Libertarian.
How about the fact there is a hell-bent, private, international banking cartel determined to control the entire world?
Now I guess I could pause here and ask if you agree with me and wait for your response. Or not! Why don’t I just keep going?
Probably a good idea to just keep going, because I’m certainly not agreeing with that crap. Yeah, I knew he was a serious conspiracy nut when I got to that point. I bet he’s going to go on about the Bilderberg Group next. I’m also guessing that he’s a big fan of Alex Jones and David Icke. I wonder if he visits Prison Planet on a regular basis?
If the bankers control the world, what’s wrong with that some may ask. The answer is, they always want more! And more for them inevitably means less for you and I. Want to know more about the insidious plan that’s been afoot to eliminate the middle class and separate permanently the filthy rich from the peons?
That’s a link to a real good source of information. Robert Kiyosaki is his name, and if you’ve never come across this stuff before it’ll blow the lid on your mind, man.
I’ve got news for the author. It doesn’t take an insidious plan to widen the divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’: all it takes is greed. We’ve all witnessed this greed in action recently: It came from people like Bernie Madoff. The big difference between Bernie and others of his ilk is that he was raping people illegally, while the Wall Street executives were raping the rest of us legally.
“…it’ll blow the lid on your mind, man.” Has anyone legitimately used that phrase since Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke was playing in theaters nationwide? I didn’t think so.
The author doesn’t seem to realize that Robert Kiyosaki writes those books to make money. Kiyosaki is primarily a motivational speaker. He really doesn’t offer financial advice or tips because he doesn’t have much in the way of expertise in these areas. What’s his big line of thinking? He suggests that people focus on generating passive income by means of investment opportunities like real estate and businesses. He thinks the ultimate goal is to be able to support yourself by such investments alone. He is prime evidence, in my opinion, of the kind of fuckhead who put us into the financial mess we are currently experiencing. He’s not part of the solution: he’s a large part of the problem. He’s making money from his books, not his own advice. He’s another con man in a long line of con men.
But it gets worse. You knew I was going to say that, didn’t you? You see, Dan, the whole reason the bankers want to dominate the world and put RFID chips in everyone is because they also want you to worship the Devil. That’s a fact that a lot of bankers probably don’t even know. I know, I know, you’re laughing out loud right now. So why don’t you check out another link to this site:
Search for the “Interview with an Ex-Vampire” and sit through it. (Are you laughing again?) At the same site you can find out about all kind of weird things, and even learn that there are people that actually believe in and worship the . . . Devil!
I should have known from the start. This guy is way off the deep end.
Bankers want to put RFID chips in people so that they can rule the world by forcing people to worship the devil? No, I’m not laughing out loud. Once again I’m wondering if the author has taken his anti-psychotic medication.
If you point to an article entitled “The Secret Order of the Illuminati (A Brief History of the Shadow Government)” as a good source of info, then expect rational people to take you seriously, you will be sorely disappointed. I don’t even know where to begin with the Illuminati bullshit. Let’s just say that it’s bullshit.
On the other hand, The Illuminatus! Trilogy is a masterpiece of modern American literature. I highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor. I’ve read it several times, and will certainly read it again.
I’m sorry, but the people who believe in ‘The Devil™’ are Christians. People involved in the Church of Satan don’t actually worship ‘The Devil™’, and neither does anyone else, except in the minds of paranoid delusional Christians such as the author of the insane ramblings I received.
What’s that have to do with the coming destruction of America? Well, do yourself another favor and search for, (it’s really hard to find because they don’t want anyone to know) the only battles that West Point Military school doesn’t use for templates to teach battlefield tactics and strategies. Give up? Well hell yes—it’s Israel! Because the only way they have won these battles and wars is inexplicable to explain. Or in other words . . . God alone caused the victories.
Or not . . . yeah, right. And I have property for sale on Mars, too.
Guess what nation is the only nation to become a nation after becoming extinct in the entire history of the World? Want a hint?
Coming destruction of America? Was a date set? I should mark it on my calendar in case I get other appointments for that day. I could clue the author in on several other things, but I’m guessing it wouldn’t make it through the tin-foil hat. Please provide documentation regarding military strategies as taught at West Point and the sources of said strategies.
The author’s command of the English Language is astounding: “…inexplicable to explain.” Let me see if I understand this correctly; the Isreali military wins seemingly unwinnable battles because of direct interference by Yahweh. Wow. If I were the Israeli military, I’d get a different advisor/helper, because Yahweh seems to be doing a fairly shitty job of it.
The only nation to become a nation after becoming extinct… The author doesn’t seem to grasp that the word ‘extinct’ is definitely not the right word to use there. It’s a nation, not an animal species. Did this guy pass his 7th grade grammar classes, or not? It doesn’t seem that he’s heard of the Republic of Serbia or the Republic of Croatia either. Maybe he should read more legitimate information sources.
Pissed you off yet?
Hey, I haven’t even gotten to the good stuff yet!
I have no idea why the author thinks that what he’s written thus far would piss me off. I definitely question his sanity, but I’m certainly not pissed off. This next part is long and rambling.
So here’s the good stuff—one God alone created the universe—your mind is just too small Dan J—we’re God’s dream—you do dream, don’t you? (I’m not talking about nasty disgusting filthy evil wicked abominable thoughts, I mean real REM dreams, my friend) and in this dream of Almighty God—there is an adversary—the Devil is his name, or Satan if you prefer, who also was once called Lucifer, (the root for the word luck by BTW) and he has a goal—keep you! You can’t sell your soul to the devil, he already owns it! But, you can let God buy it back . . . That’s what the Blood of Jesus can do for you, Dan J—pluck you out of the clutches of a real, genuinely enraged, lying devil. And the reason he hates you is because you remind him of . . . God. And his biggest lie was to convince mankind that he didn’t exist. Or maybe that God didn’t either. And not only does he hate you and me, but he hates all humanity. But the dream—God is going to recreate all things new—including those who have been persecuted for Jesus’ name, or for being Jewish, and there is a resurrection from the dead because—Jesus Christ has abolished death. He just hasn’t enforced it yet in our narrow spectrum of reality.
Now how’s that for big news?
Sorry if these truths stretch your concept of reality.
Let me guess; that one God is Yahweh, right? Who knows what he means about my mind being too small. I always thought it fit inside my skull quite snugly. Does the author have PET scans I don’t know about?
We are God’s dream? I think he’s confusing his Judeo-Christian mythology with other mythological systems. Yes, I do have dreams (REM state dreams while sleeping). The author will have to explain what he means by “nasty disgusting filthy evil wicked abominable thoughts”. I’m guessing that some of the things I dream about wouldn’t qualify for his definition, even though they take place during REM sleep.
The author is simply wrong about the etymology of the word ‘luck’. It actually comes from 15th century Middle Dutch luc, a shortening of gheluc, meaning “happiness, good fortune,” which is of unknown origin. It is related to Middle High German g(e)lücke, and German Glück “fortune, good luck.” The base is of unknown origin, and certainly not by any evidence from the term ‘lucifer’. Unless this guy has special inside information he’d like to share with the wordsmiths of the world, he should probably keep his mouth shut about the etymology stuff.
The remainder of that paragraph (if you could call it that) is simply religious blather that makes no sense at all. Our narrow spectrum of reality? This dude has widened it up to include all kinds of bullshit that he’s made up inside his head.
P.S. God really does love you and wants to save you. But the deal is, you have to surrender on his terms. That gets you to let go of this world, and then he can pick you up. Look; I know it’s a lot and it’s deep but it’s all true too. So look up for your redemption draweth nigh! If you come to Jesus Christ with your whole heart, he can change you. If you give him your sinful life, he will give you his righteousness. He will give you perfect peace. He will even give you eternal life. But you can’t have both. Think about it, Dan.
The problem with life is it kills us all in the end.
The problem with sin is it causes death.
The problem with Jesus is he cannot deny himself.
Sorry if I was being blunt.
More religious blather that doesn’t actually mean anything, nor convey useful information. Blunt? No, he wasn’t being blunt. He was being psychotic. There is a difference.
I know you said not to be this way but you suggested it!

This is really killer, dude. It explains why the world is so very one-sided.
I said not to be what way? Did I tell people not to be psychotic? I wish it were that easy. What did I suggest? Did I suggest that the author find more conspiracies to believe? No. One suggestion I do have for the author of this amazing piece of drivel is to seek professional psychiatric assistance. I do not mean some guy from the church who attended a psychology seminar at a church retreat two years ago. I mean a licensed, practicing psychiatrist.
