The Beginning....

The Beginning....
When William Least Heat-Moon toured the country many years ago, his steed, if you will, was a van that he named Ghost Dancing. His journey of America was 13,000 miles. His book is Blue Highways, A Journey Into America. My steed will be a Subaru WRX (traded for an XV Crosstrek). My travels will be, what in the past were called, the blue highways of Virginia. Years ago, maps showed secondary roads in blue. Yes, the ones less traveled.

Yes, a Councilwoman, in Chesapeake, Virginia Wants to Have in God We Trust Plastered Everywhere!!!!!

Here we go again, amazingly. In our sister city, if you will, Chesapeake, which rubs up against the border of my city (Virginia Beach) Councilwoman Suzy Kelly is proposing that Chesapeake adopts In God We Trust. Here's the link to the article.

I would really like to use the F word, however, one of my New Years' resolutions was to use no words that I wouldn't use around my mom. And, around my mom, I rarely, if ever, even said damn.

Where was I?

If I said my Subaru gets 100 mpg you'd surely ask for EVIDENCE! You would surely want to see some road tests or something. You surely wouldn't believe just on my saying that my Subaru gets 100 mpg. Suppose I showed you the Subaru Bible and pointed out that the Bible said it gets 100 mpg, would you then believe it? Why not, for cryin' out loud, it's in the Bible.

Yet, you believe in a virgin birth, talking snakes, and all the rest....but, won't believe my Subaru gets 100 mpg.

Well, enough of this. Yes, just whistlin' Dixie. You folks keep on getting up on Sunday, putting on your finest, trudging to your churches and such, and praising whatever God you praise. Listening to ministers, reverends, and so on; dressed in really tacky costumes, babbling about the Lord God and Baby Jesus. Terrific.

Occasionally and rarely a few of you will all of a sudden realize you've been had.....and, will realize what a hoax and a scam it has all been.

Yes, America may well be a great country. But, in many ways, with our bizarre and absurd beliefs, we are so far behind other great nations who have tossed off the shackles of delusions, false beliefs. myths, and superstitions.

If we take a look at the countries that have the highest we're happy and enjoying life ratings, they are the same countries that have the fewest believers! Hmmm.....
