Gleanings frm cyber world

Some of the material encountered in cyber space, either floated or directed by messaging, is quite airy, amusing, or really funny.  Other material is quite inspirational.  Still other gleanings prove to be informative and educational. 

 

But some circulated material is drawn from the cesspool of coarseness and vulgarity.  Some is like the seepage from an untended sore, full of smelly yellow pus.  Some of it emanates from delusional minds.  Still some comes as a vile seepage from within the human heart.  Some starts with the distasteful condition of absent truth, and then acquires satanic qualities when applied for evil purposes. 

 

The person who is the offending passer often poses a puzzle.  They just don’t fit with the material.  That misfit poses a conundrum. 

 

Just today this writer received a pass-along e-mail detailing at great length how President Obama under another name and passport had traveled to various Muslim countries for nefarious purposes.  It told how he was born by that name in Indonesia; how he had kept all his personal records secret and unavailable; how his education was financed by mysterious funds from Muslims; and more such “revealing” pseudo information.  This came through the auspices of a dear 80-year-old retired lady teacher, who has been a trusted friend for 20 years and known generally to have good sense. 

 

A seemingly bright young 50-year-old professional, a distant relative, sent three of the wildest messages of political attack on the president.  These were wild to the point of weird, maybe a little crazy.  Those did not fit with this man, but then he has gone emotionally “tea party” over politics. 

 

Earlier in the week the following came through on a message board: 

 

“I hate it when I wake up in the morning and Barrack Obama is still president.  Only 999 days until this socialist imposter is out of OUR White House.”  -----       (9,209 people had been recorded as “liking” that message.)

  • The good, bad and ugly

    The bad and the ugly in state politics have been readily observable to the Oklahoma public, and lately even to the nation at large.  But the good has been more difficult to discern within the Oklahoma legislature.
