Clarifying a General Point – Politics and this Blog

Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.

When I post a blog I frequently do so in complete ignorance of current events.  I don’t have a television, the radio never gets turned on, and I don’t read newspapers or magazines until they sometimes fall into my hands many years after they were printed.

I don’t know and don’t wish to know who wants to be king.  The Challenge of 2012: Not Knowing Who Wants to be King   And I’m not likely to get any joy from knowing which readers prefer which liar and scoundrel, and which prefer some other one.  I have no intention to participate in the scramble to assassinate characters of the occupants of one side of the pool of corruption to give advantage to the occupants of the other side of the pool.

 If a post here manages to convey an impression I’m giving support to one political illusion over another, it’s entirely by accident and not to be taken as a launchpad for more intense and focused discourse on the issue.

Today on Ask Old Jules:

Old Jules, why are there so many religions and spiritual beliefs?

  1. Thank you… Very wise 🙂

  2. I could tell you were a Paulite from a mile away. ;-> (j/k)

    • Marvin: Actually I think Christianity would have a better track record over the past 2000 years if Paul had remained Saul of Tarsus. Thanks for the visit. Jules

  3. Like Switzerland? Neutral? But is Switzerland still (neutral)?

    • LCTC!: Probably not neutral, either Switzerland or me. But Switzerland hasn’t asked for my opinion about anything more frequently than the US government’s done, so they both might be neutral toward me. Gracias, Jules

  4. We only get a newspaper because, 20 years ago on Molokai, the Gulf war was ‘on,’ and we had no idea.
    Still, it seems a load of poppycock most of the time.
    Nothing new
