    SuperBowl Hangover!

    in Comedy

    Babies will be made, and wives will be beat. All because of a game.


    Drunk drivers will be all over the road. Driving while high on weed or other drugs is the same thing. Don't be a bahstad!


    Peyton Manning has an annoying weirdly deep voice. It make me want to poop.


    Cam Newton keeps sneezing into his arm. Someone give him a benadryl.


    Anonymous is at it again, being basement tough guys while smelling like BO and mildew.


    I heard Peyton yell "NEBRASKA!"


    ALLAH OMAHA!


    As I type this, Denver scored another touch down. Looks like Peyton had another ring like his little brother.


    I'm waiting for baseball to start.


    A crane in Manhatten collapsed, and was caught on camera by an italian resident. All you could hear him say was beep beep beeeeeeep.


    Tom Brady was booed during the pre-game introductions.Bill Belicheck paid the crowd to boo.

    Carolina Clay - The Story of Dave with Leonard Todd

    in History

    Leonard Todd is the author of CAROLINA CLAY, the story of the slave potter known as Dave. Newsweek calls it “a fascinating account.” Publishers Weekly describes it as “a sweeping tale of the South itself.” It was a finalist for The National Award for Arts Writing, and it won the South Carolina Center for the Book Award for Writing. It is published by W. W. Norton.


    Born in South Carolina, Leonard was educated at Yale University. He is a former Fulbright Scholar to France. He lived for many years in New York City, where he began his writing career with travel articles, short stories, and novels for young adults. Two of his novels, set in areas of the South that he knew well as a boy, were optioned for film productions.


    Author Leonard Todd will be talking with us about the great ceramic artisan known as “Dave,” who lived in South Carolina during the 19th century. He was a potter, a poet, and a slave.


    For many years, very few details were known about this enigmatic man. Leonard, however, discovered a startling personal link to him and set out to uncover his story. The prize-winning book, CAROLINA CLAY, is the result.


    Leonard now lives with his wife, a poet, in Edgefield, South Carolina, where he recently wrote the book, lyrics, and music for his first theatrical musical, SUNNY DAY, which had its premiere at the Edgefield County Theatre Company.


    Leonard has told Dave’s story to audiences at the Smithsonian, at Oxford, on National Public Radio, and today he will be telling it to us.

    This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

    in Psychology

    Monday -              Release YOUR Pain


                            Let Go of YOUR Suffering


                            Break YOUR Silence


    Monday’s show is dedicated to survivors who need to take that one step and reveal the truth.  Please don’t think of this special step as being exposed to the world and fearing the worst from people if you tell us what happened to you as a child, but instead know that you have been traumatized enough.  You never did anything wrong.   You deserve and should demand that this load of crap that has been dumped on you be cleaned off of you and out of you!! This trauma is no longer yours!!  Take your poisonous secret, put it in a bag and throw it in the trash.  It is out, gone and never to return because you can’t be a victim ever again!!!  He no longer has that power over you!! 


    It is very true that the damage that he or she has caused is very real and you probably feel tore up from the floor up, but that is just it!  You are now able to heal.  You have stopped the damage and the profuse bleeding and the painful recovery begins.  The healing path is stretched as far as your eyes can see and in fact, the ending is never seen by our eyes, but the path is a different path.  It is a life being surrounded by people who support us and we seek healthy people and make healthier choices. 


    Welcome!  And it all begins with This One Step.

    Blame Canada & Rubio 2.0

    in Politics Conservative

    The Iowa Caucuses behind us and the New Hampshire Primary ahead we are seeing the full array of psy-opts manipulation across all fronts. As Trump continues to lead the GOP field for eight months he faces deceptive attacks from the Washington establishment.  His ‘second’ place victory in Iowa was billed as a loss while the Cubanadian engaged in illicit electioneering and ¿Jeb?’s Cuban placeholder from Florida came in an overwhelmingly victorious third with an assist from Microsoft vote-counting algorithms.


    Carson lay into Canada Ted over his virtuous absconding of votes and the Jersey Boy exposed the flaw in iRubio by pressuring the young neocon into sputtering his Luntz approved script with a faulty Microsoft code. Trump shushed ¿Jeb? and revealed the RNC’s staging of another ‘debate’ in order to give credence to the pre-determined poll results which are designed to wick away the real votes of American nationalists and funnel them to El Hermanos de Cruzio. All this to swing the momentum to Little Jebbie who looks like she lost her doll and needs mommy to find it.


    This has nothing to do with ideology, policy, substance or even an electoral process, or any candidate or party, not even Donald Trump. This is the last peaceful option to dislodge the globalist oligarchs and their sycophants and restore American Nationalism in the hope that liberty may rise once again.  Break the rigged system, smash it to pieces. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, corporatists, oligarchs, kleptocrats, useful idiots and their fellow travelers you MUST CRUSH the globalist progressive-corporatist oligarchs and their canned-idiot meat-puppets on the ‘left’, ‘right’ and everywhere...for liberty!

    John Carver Show - Pray then What? This was VERY tough for me to share.

    in Self Help

    I shared "Pray then What" with our church at Faith Outreach Chapel in Baltimore Maryland.  I wouldn't teach about prayer for YEARS because our daughter, Juliana, has been fighting cancer since 2007 and NONE of my prayers, and the prayers of thousands of people around the world have worked to cure her...so standing behind a pulpit and sharing that prayer works would mean I would have to be a hypocrite for which I am not.


    Some of what I shared includes:


    Wisdom from people much smarter than me:


    “Pray like it all depends on God, but work like it all depends on you.”  Dave Ramsey


    “The Christian should work as if all depended upon him, and pray as if it all depended upon God.”  Charles Haddon Spurgeon


    “Work as if everything depended upon work and pray as if everything depended upon prayer.” William Booth


    Toward the end of this sermon I shared a story.  I broke down in the middle of it because I felt like the little boy who is crying out for God to heal Juliana (unlock the door) and she still suffers with cancer.
