Aneristic Illusions / Re: H.R. 6054: Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018
« on: July 12, 2018, 02:42:08 pm »
Luckily, the bill is still in committee, with an estimated 20% chance of becoming law, as per Skopos.

The guy who wrote/sponsored this bill is Daniel Donovan Jr (R-NY).  He's up for re-election this year.  His opponent is Boyd Nelson.

The co-sponsors are:
Ted Budd (R-NC), also up for re-election against Kathy Manning.  Fun fact: Budd's campaign pulled a URL troll against her, buying www.kathymanningforcongress.com which doles out misinformation about her.

Paul Gosar (R-AZ).  Primaries are August 28.

Peter King (R-NY).  His opponent is Liuba Grechen Shirley, and there's a chance she'll beat him.

Anyway, for those who will be sharing this bill, it might be helpful to provide the above information so people can do more than just be gobsmacked and pissed off.

Thank you.

It's kind of funny how some people will say they "get" the idea behind the Pope cards (and maybe even remember the twist in Illuminatus!) but still fall in line regarding Greyface.

You can bring a Pope to knowledge,
but you can't make 'em think.

Willful ignorance is now acceptable required.

FTFY

I hate that you're right.

So... wearing a mask makes a relatively minor assault and possibly battery into a major possible prison sentence... FUCK! This is bullshit.

QG ruins everything.

I resent the implication that I had ANYTHING to do with the recent meteorological goings on. I swear every time something gory falls out of the sky You People show up with the torches and pitchforks.

 :angrymob: :angrymob: :angrymob: :angrymob:.... oh. I... I guess we'll just return these to the rental place. Sorry to be a bother.

some things are kinda written by my website manager and friend. :3
however, Cyn Chaote is dead due to other reasons. i am the only one who resides in the body... though i share the memories.
in regards to entheriogenick... (my friend came up with that, and i suppose so.) :3

*nods

So you claim to have been permanently evoked into a live body, but the spirit of the previous owner has left the building. Interesting. Was Cyn Chaote seeking to be a vessel for you or was it more of a happenstance that Chaote was on the way out and you needed a vessel? I guess I'm asking you for clarification on the circumstances of your transition if you're willing.

I've seen several possession phenomena first hand and know of more cases and also traditional rites that allege to temporarily invoke various gods into usually willing hosts known as "horses". In these cases the owner of the body is still in there somewhere no matter how deeply buried. Your situation is something new to me. I would very much like to better understand how it happened.

entheriogenick

Please define this word for me. Do you mean something like entheogenic?

I actually didn't mention the best part of that whole thing here.

The sexual assault was made by one of our resident students, and I was the one who dealt with the situation.  Management went completely AFK, I had threats to get a foreign embassy involved (all the students are international), I had threats made against the student alleged to have done the deed by another staff member, I couldn't initially ID the student in question because we didn't have basic working office equipment, if proper staffing levels had been put on to allow for regular patrols (since this was a massive arrival day, with 70+ students and 4 groups arriving) then the incident may not have occured ....

It was a clusterfuck of a night

Sorry to hear you had a bad night. Your shit reminds me that there are worse things than doing a 2 person palletizing job by yourself all night, and that really sucks on its own. Hang in there Cain. I hope that you find better work one fine day.

Herein lies the problem with most archaic and contemporary secret societies, spiritual organizations, and magickal orders: they gain much more from you than you gain from them.   

Still combing the site a bit at a time, but  this stood out. I would venture to say that the same basic problem applies also to most of "worshiping" various entities. You say that you have permanently invoked "Capeditiea" and are a willing vessel as such. Have you, "Cyn Chaote", gained more than you gave in that transaction?

Well, having put more thought into it, I think the world needs more Pagan forums.  I mean, it's not like every cafe druid and cherohonkey with a copy of Mists of Avalon hasn't started one, or that they ALL turn out the same way.

Prediction:  No matter how good the intent of the 3 people involved, no matter what examples they have to warn them, within months they'll be strongarming people with the mod button.

Why?  Because Paganism is - and always has been - about control.  Gardiner and his friends, in Wicca's case, wrote that RIGHT INTO THE RELIGION...So that they could use it to control the rubes that followed them. 

TGRR's Dictum:  A Pagan board will go mod-happy just as soon as they have a base of believers that have to be "protected" from any test of their ideas from an outside person or group.

I'm in the process of reading the thread. Just thought I'd move a copy of this here quote to the recent pages for reference.

From how things are going in the thread so far it seems almost idyllic. Best keep on reading!
