Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

With the amount of individuals running for POTUS we thought it would be a good idea to start looking into candidates. It seems that there is a host of Women that are seeking the highest office in the land. It also seems that these numbers of Women seeking high political offices has increased since the wave of Obama Mania! Was this a push via the GOP and it's chess like move to Vett Sara Palin? Is this the result of Obama Mania and the Dems rebuttal? Is it a bigger agenda?

ReLIEgion embodies the purpose for worship of the EXTERNAL. The externalization of Worship, OUTSIDE of the SELF. Deliverance of energies to entities not of self, other. Energy Vampires harvesting off of the powers of the inate. Powers inate in all humanity, who have been convinced that the achievement of deliverance can only be granted by a group of SAID TO BE Creators. The external worship to vampires fed by energies of deceived humanity.
A game of Chess, in which humanity is a player but remains deficient for not KNOWing the rules. For in the game of chess lay roles. Yet, its PAWNS, bare the weakness of its capabilities set in motion by the limitations imposed upon its freeDOME. The PAWN, a SUBJECT, made to protect the veneers and illusion of the POWER of the KING, the POWER of the QUEEN. Even surrendering its own soveirngty and LIFE-FORCE for that of its seeming Elite. Martydom, for the sake of its designed KING, its QUEEN, who without its the acquiescing of its SUBJECTS would not maintain their thrones. PAWNS, never to self-actualize; but SACRIFICE for the illusion.
How is the game of CHESS played, what are its rules, and who is PRIVY TO IS STRATEGIES? and who is SUBJECT to it RULES? How is the ROYALTY of which they protect and implication of the ROYALTY that is their own?
Tonight, we delve into the days in which the GODS RULED and traversed the Planet. The days in which their STATUS as KING, QUEEN and ROYALTY, were the catalyst of implied thought to their POWER. A power USURPED of the PAWNS, who not seeing its own LIFE-FORCE energy; admired the OUTER ROYALTY of which they were not. The devising of a PROGRAM to usurp the inately powerful, by the imposed LIMITED RULES from masterminds of the GAME. The days in which the LAWGIVERS created the veneers of authority and SUPERIORITY, and in its strategy usurped INNER POWER the now POWERLESS.

There are no arguments the event a week ago in Charleston, SC was a terrible, horrific, tragic event. The use of the slaughter of nine innocents as chess pieces for political gain is just as bad. Yet, many people feel the use of the deaths are justified. SC Legislatures voted on the flag issue. Too bad they can't act as quickly on other issues. Retailers bow to political and media pressure. Other States now drawing attention. Just some of the topics we will discuss on this edition of "In the Pickle Barrel".
