the very fact of the H-bomb actualized the reality of Armageddon

It is in the death flow 8:22 AM Friday morning. Outside it is a sunny morning. I like these clear sky sunny days we had this week.

I got up this morning once again around 5:16 AM. I was up early because last night I went to bed at 9 o'clock PM. I seem to be going to bed earlier and earlier lately. This week has been draining for me. I am recovering from the Presidential election. I am sick at heart.

So I got up made a pot of coffee, ate a sweet roll and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I ate a bowel of cereal and wrote in my paper diary. I have been reading this morning from a book I read last night titled, "The Worlds of Herman Kahn: The Intuitive Science of Thermonuclear War" by Sharon Ghamasi-Tabrizi.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I might rake leaves today. I am tired so I might just do nothing. No matter what I do this day will go by.

I will close to sit and feel empty.

I just remembered there is some good news in that Maine and California legalized marijuana for recreational use. We can all get stoned as America goes up in flames.

the social legitimacy of state-sponsored violence

It is now in the death flow 11:14 AM late Friday morning. The sun is still in the sky shining. I left the house to do some errands. While out I visited a local thrift store searching for used books to add to our library. I found/bought these used books this morning-

"Tarantula" poetry Bob Dylan

"The Women" A Novel of Frank Lloyd Wright by T.C. Boyle

"English Spiritual Writers From Aelfric of Eynsham To Ronald Knox" Edited by Charles Davis

"Rumpole and the Reign Of Terror" a novel by John Mortimer

"Rumpole and the Penge Bungalow Murders" a novel by John Mortimer

"The Cider House Rules" a novel by John Irving

"Roughing It" autobiography by Mark Twain

"Rabbit, Run" a novel by John Updike

"The Thirty Years War" European History by C.V. Wedgwood

"Wickford Point" a novel by John P. Marquand

"Classic Irish Short Stories" Selected and Introduced by Frank O'Connor

"The City Of Trembling Leaves" a novel by Walter Van Tilbury Clark

I got all these books for $2.12. Some of these used books I had already so I will take them to the book nook (library used books store) tomorrow to be sold to the reading public.

Well, I suppose I will close to brush my choppers and write some more crap in my paper diary.

"[1] the word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
[2] And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
[3] And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
[4] And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
[5] O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
[6] Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
[7] Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
[8] Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
[9] And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
[10] Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
[11] The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day." Isiah 2:1-11
