["The Zombies - She's Not There" -- from (what appears to be) "Shindig"]
There are those who claim they would like to solve (whether real or unreal) major issues that concern society, and yet go to and trust the mainstream corporate conglomerate taken-over media of the present day for much (if not all) of their information. This, I submit, makes absolutely no sense, and evinces on their part an almost complete and utter lack of intelligence and credibility.
All in favor of pop-up ads on YouTube videos, signify by saying "Aye!" (Opposed, "Nay!")

In the Rankin/Bass "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" television program, by show's end "Bumble" or the "Abominable Snow Monster" is not only overcome, but is rehabilitated. Well, last night I had a reminder of how this may also be possible with "very bad" spirit people. At the same time as I am round-the-clock and routinely subject to brain radios, it is also not unusual for me to suffer demonistic "dream productions" (when sleeping) and related telepathy -- all of which are very unwelcome by me, I assure you. But last night was somewhat different. While normally the things relayed to me take on the form of either personal abuse and or present gossip about others, on this occasion "they" were talking history.
First, understand I forbid both brain radios and demonistic telepathy, and told them countless times I will not put up with these (if I can help it.) Nonetheless, this does not mean that these spirit people don't necessarily, in a given instance, have something worthwhile or interesting to impart. Yet there are two possible problems with spirit people communications (in a given instance.) I mentioned the first with respect to the means used (e.g., radios and telepathy); while the second is that you cannot necessarily trust the accuracy of what they say or claim. So again, for these reasons I will not tolerate or put up with their communications. At the same time, however, I did tell them they can, if they choose to, communicate to me, using a willing flesh and blood intermediary, by means of a letter, e-mail, or conventional form of messaging. They haven't yet done so, but the greater point is that I don't prohibit their communicating to me of itself necessarily or as such, but only proscribe certain means they use to do so -- regardless of whether or not what they have to say is of value or useful. So while we do not condone, let alone encourage, demonistic telepathy, it is true on the other hand that some spirit people may otherwise be of aid with respect to our further understanding spirit people, history, and other important topics.
With this all understood, let me relate to you what they were talking about last night; which, for my own convenience sake, I will enumerate by way of a short list.
* There a spirit people who for a long time have been living in the Pantheon in Rome, and at various times efforts have been made to try to get rid of them. When this was tried, however, the would-be evictors (I assumed by this last regular people were meant) were told by the spirit people trespassers that if they persisted they (the spirit people squatters) would be justified in and would cause trouble. Presumably then the regular people were compelled to desist. (Interestingly, in my own experience there would seem to be parts of Westminister Abbey with this same problem; as I myself encountered in London many years ago on a visit to that city.)
* The reason Nerva was chosen as emperor to succeed Domitian was that by then (if not sooner) some senators and or others understood that what was and had been plaguing the imperial seat was troublemaking spirit people, and that Nerva was selected was because he had an intelligent grasp of the subject. Notwithstanding, his efforts for reform in this department were not as successful as could have been hoped.
* Meanwhile, Trajan was described by this spirit person conveying these things to me as "not someone you want to know;" which either means people would not respect or take him very seriously (due to spirit people making him look bad), or else that he was a bad or else weak person who succumbed to spirit people pressures.
He would have gone on and told me more, but under the circumstances I told him I didn't want to hear it.

Who does he think he is, Almighty God?
"No, not God. Merely his chief rival and competitor."
He, the Stars Wars Kid, assumed he knew what was supposed to be cool, funny, awesome, and musical, but in fact he never actually did. Meanwhile, the Phantom of the Opera thought he was the one who could best help the girl, but in truth he was the worst thing for her. What then went wrong? The Kid and the Phantom had made a childhood friend of a dragon.
Of course we suffer terribly under their tyranny, violence, and oppression -- and have had to do so now for many years. But far -- indeed incomprehensibly -- worse than all these and more would be enjoying wealth, love, luxury and freedom and the way and manner they do. And much better it is to fight them instead.

"$2 million in revenue per month." Quite incredible when you realize that here at gunjones.com, we've taken in only $25.00 in five years' time. (Or is there possibly something fishy about all this?)
Is there honor among thieves? Yes, but not through thick and thin. And life after all, as some have said, is very long...
"You reject, unhappy one, the advantage of heavenly discipline, and rushest into death while wishing to stray without a bridle. Luxury and the shortlived joys of the world are ruining you, whence you shall be tormented in hell for all time. They are vain joys with which you are foolishly delighted. Do not these make you to be a man dead? Cannot thirty years at length make you a wise man? Ignorant how you have first strayed, look upon ancient time, you think now to enjoy here a joyous life in the midst of wrongs. These are the ruins of your friends, wars, or wicked frauds, thefts with bloodshed: the body is vexed with sores, and groaning and wailing is indulged; whether a slight disease invade you, or you are held down by long sickness, or you are bereaved of your children, or you mourn over a lost wife. All is a wilderness: alas, dignities are hurried down from their height by vices and poverty; doubly so, assuredly, if you languish long. And do you call it life when this life of glass is mortal? Consider now at length that this time is of no avail, but in the future you have hope without the craft of living. Certainly the little children which have been snatched away desired to live. Moreover, the young men who have been deprived of life, perchance were preparing to grow old, and they themselves were making ready to enjoy joyful days; and yet we unwillingly lay aside all things in the world. I have delayed with a perverse mind, and I have thought that the life of this world was a true one; and I judged that death would come in like manner as you did— that when once life had departed, the soul also was dead and perished. These things, however, are not so; but the Founder and Author of the world has certainly required the brother slain by a brother. Impious man, say, said He, where is your brother? And he denied. For the blood of your brother has cried aloud to Me to heaven. You are tormented, I see, when you thought to feel nothing; but he lives and occupies the place on the right hand. He enjoys delights which you, O wicked one, have lost; and when you have called back the world, he also has gone before, and will be immortal: for you shall wail in hell. Certainly God lives, who makes the dead to live, that He may give worthy rewards to the innocent and to the good; but to the fierce and impious, cruel hell. Commence, O you who are led away, to perceive the judgments of God."

Where the Laughs Don't Stop
There is, I'm inclined to think, reason to believe the secret behind Steven Spielberg's billion dollar movie career is spirit people and money laundering -- though bear in mind even if -- for the sake of argument -- this surmise turns out to be correct, it doesn't follow that he himself necessarily knows all that is going on. In any event, I chanced to come across the Dreamworks animation website, and for all the hype behind these films and their creators, I defy and challenge someone to find even one single genuinely funny moment in any of them. Note also the kind of themes and topics they address. Is this what the public wants? But you be the judge (and for more samples, check YouTube.)
