Okay, doc. It's like this. I'm unemployed, and the thought of getting another job scares me because of my last experience with a temp agency.

I will not say which agency yet. But Adecco (now I'll say it) lied (intentionally?) to the DES UI office to avoid paying my unemployment insurance claim.

Why? The world's largest employment agency cannot afford it? Did they lie about that, too? Maybe it was just in North America, or Europe, or...

In any event, doc, you gotta help me! I think life events and unusual pressures have exerted their stresses upon me long enough to crack me under the strain. My work ethic has taken a hit. My tolerance for stress has been minimized to practically nothing. All I can do now is watch YouTube (and blog about it ;), listen to worldview-shaking podcasts (and blog about them), and hide behind my self-righteous Facebook posts...

Well, you get the idea. I'm in a world of hurt. Hopefully, God will deliver me, as He always does, from the doldrums of unemployment, hopelessness, and financial ruin. I need confidence like never before.

It is such s shame I have to resort to self-indulgent forms of communication like blogging on my smartphone to get any kind of cry for help out there. But then, that is what self-indulgent whackoes like me have to do.

Or so I think. Have a nice day, and thanks for visiting.

My home office
Well, in order to ensure that no cyberwebs have encroached upon my seldom-posted-on "weblog," (remember that old term, along with "information superhighway?"), I shall attempt to compose here a brief discourse, as it were, dealing with the subject of compelling prose.

Ha! Do you suppose I am eminently qualified to wax eloquent about the aforementioned topic? Indeed, you would be premature in your prejudice against me. For, to be premature in one's judgment is to be, in fact, prejudiced. But I digress, as usual.

I must interject at this juncture with a juxtaposition of just plain appreciation for the Peace Revolution podcast. Please see my previous post, "A Podcast To End All Wars. But I digress, again!

How now is your assessment of my treatment of the topic of compelling prose? Compelling? I trow not. (definition :) I am like the proverbial amateur connoisseur who says confidently, "I know good _______ when I see it!" Perhaps you see it. Perhaps not.

Part of writing a decent blog post is keeping your skills sharp. Even if this post today goes nowhere topically, at least I got some valuable practice in! But sometimes the inspiration from a previous post fails to carry me to completion of another "home run." Nevertheless, I try.

By the way, that was a subtle hint for you to feel free to visit my last post, because I know it is quite possibly far more interesting (compelling?) than this one. But I digress, for the last time.

Thank you for your patronage. Please come back to visit again.

For those who subscribe, literally or figuratively, to a conspiratorial view of history, let me post this latest find in the treasure trove of Internet (and elsewhere) resources at our disposal. We who care deeply about this crazy, evil world we live in, until Jesus takes us home, will find comfort in learning truth wherever it is found regarding historically significant events which affect peace and humanity.
I am listening to this podcast right now, which serves as a springboard for further research among a myriad, nay, a constellation, of podcasts and other media which tell the stories behind life-changing events in our time and in previous generations. 

Time restricts me from providing you all the YouTube videos and podcasts I have listened to and watched before finally reaching  this one. But here is one:

My heartfelt gratitude goes to Richard Grove for his bravery in publishing his life experiences with, or should I say, against the "status quo." This "New World Order" will stop at nothing diabolical to achieve its ends.

Please enjoy your journey through history as told by those who care about you and me, and who have and will risk their lives doing that. Thank God.
