|Jackson Prison, Michigan: Lock 'em up!|
July 6, the alpha and omega of the Republican Party. To begin with it was on this day 1854 that the Republican Party was officially created in Jackson, Michigan -- home of the Michigan State Prison. Coinkidink? Perhaps, but it is funny to think that the end of the Republican Party happened on July 6, 2011, for this was the date of the first Donald Trump political tweets.
Of course, this first Trump tweet was about something that he cares little about now that he is president. I mean, really, when's the last-time you heard anything about the Hugh deficit in the US? That's right, it is one of those things Republican's never remind you of when they are in office increasing it with tax-cuts and military spending; the out-of-control US debt is their second biggest lie to win elections -- the first being abortions, which only their daughters should be allowed to have by flying to France -- and they know it.
Trump's first ever personal tweet:
|Bullet Points on King James I (google it)|
King James I (1566-1625), who was responsible for the most widely used translation of the Bible—the King James Version—was gay and fell in love with several young men. In 1607, the forty-one-year-old king began a relationship with the penniless seventeen-year-old Robert Carr, which lasted for about seven years. In that time, Carr became a wealthy earl and was married. After his relationship with the king hit the rocks, both he and his wife were imprisoned in the Tower of London. They were sentenced to death, but the king commuted their sentence, and they remained in the Tower for six years.
You didn't know that? Really, what books have you been reading? It is fact, even Sir Walter Raleigh joked about it, saying “King Elizabeth” had been succeeded by “Queen James.”
Of course, reading the bible closer does show you why King James I wanted it translated into English:
“And it came to pass, when he (David) had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul….And Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.” (1 Samuel 18:1,3)
“Then Saul’s anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse (i.e. David) to thine own confusion, and unto the confusion of thy mother’s nakedness?” (1 Samuel 20:30)
“…they (David and Jonathan) kissed one another, and wept one with another…” (1 Samuel 20:41)
(Following Jonathan’s death, David said,) “I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.” (2 Samuel 1:26)
“When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the Lord thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, And sees among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldst have her to thy wife; Then thou shalt bring her home to wine house…and after that, thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife. And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her.” (Deuteronomy 21: 10-14)
(The laws in Deuteronomy 23:25-29 state that if a man rapes a young woman who is engaged to be married, he shall be executed. But if she doesn’t have a fiancée, then he shall marry her—in other words, she will be forced to marry her rapist. The idea behind this is that since such importance was placed on a woman’s virginity as a prerequisite for marriage, no one else would want her after she was raped. Although a woman needed to keep proof she was a virgin when she married—usually a bloody cloth from her nuptial bed—the man’s virginity was not considered important.)
(Genesis 19:30-36) “And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him…. (wtf! I can’t read this nasty shit anymore).
