The Original Hippie or Perhaps, “Has Anyone Seen My Prophet? “

This blog I originally published 10 years ago.

My views and beliefs are still somewhat the same.

Since what I have been through in the last three months my Faith has grown much stronger.

What I am trying to convey here is that how do we identify a “prophet”?

A false prophet is easily discovered, but how in today’s society would we be able to recognize a true prophet. For all we know we may have the real one locked up in an institution with the numerous false ones.

Or he/her cold be hiding their identity until society learns to stop killing each other in the name of “religion”.

I truly believe that Jesus existed and was somehow able to communicate with the Creator. I believe he was very intelligent and far ahead of his time .

You have to keep in mind that in his time ninety percent of man were uneducated, illiterate and still worshipping false idols.

Could a charismatic, educated man be capable of influencing followers? Hell, yes most certainly.

Jesus could have been an alien or the last brilliant mind to come from Atlantis for all we really know.

Why we’re the first 14 books of the Bible removed by “religious” leaders of the day?

There is a great difference between being a religious follower and a true believer of faith.

All the “Holy Books” of that time had to be written in simple language form so as the average citizen could understand the messages.

Our genetic need to be the best and only one who knows what is truth has misconstrued what Jesus was sent to teach us.

But, we murdered him because, firstly, he was right and secondly, he was far too charismatic and thereby a threat to all religions .

So, here we had this poor soul traveling the world trying to enlighten society on the ten Commandments and teach us how to live peaceful and meaningful lives.

We returned the favor by killing him in the name of religion .

There have been many more “true prophets” since Jesus. But, modern day “religion” has been able to make us disbelievers of truth so as Faith does not interfere with the big money game we have labeled “Religion”.

Because we have not evolved much since Jesus’s time .

Which leaves us wondering, as I state below, “Who is the Jesus of this time period?

The Original Hippie

I was recently asked if I believed in Jesus Christ.

What anxiety this raised within me – it was though I had been waiting for some soul to ask me this deep question.

Here is my mindset on this controversial topic.

I definitely believe in Jesus.

I believe he walked upon this big blue marble.

I believe he spread the words of the Creators.

I believe he was a man who was ahead of his time in the area’s of logic, societal disposition and culture.

Jesus was a man.

I do NOT believe he was the SON OF GOD. (Where is Mrs. God?)

Whoa, now I have stepped into it……..so, here I go…………..

Jesus was a Prophet.

Jesus was a peaceful, gentle scholar who wished only to make an immature society overstand the reality of spiritualism and human reality.

Jesus was the original Hippie.

Jesus was born at the wrong time.

Jesus was persecuted for his overstanding of what this plain of existence was, is and shall be.

In the rock opera, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, the title song asks the question, “Why did you choose such a backward time in such a backward land?”. Did he choose? Or was that what the Creators decided was necessary for the plain of space/time continuum in this particular multiverse?

Jesus was a soul man.

Through all time, through all plains of reality and through all seven multi-universes there has been Prophets. Be it Jesus, Siddhartha, Gandhi, Aristotle or John Lennon, makes no nevermind – they are just the vessel. The message is always the same. To quote Led Zeppelin, “The Song Remains The Same”.

Jesus was the father of the peace, love, forgiveness and unity movements.

LEAVES ONE TO WONDER, “WHO IS THE JESUS OF NOW?

BOBI WINE – UGANDA’S SO-CALLED “GHETTO PRESIDENT”

So, they freed up Bobi Wine on bail today.

Denying he was beaten and tortured while in custody.

Oddly the day he was arrested he could walk and talk. Strange how he left prison on crutches and speechless.

https://www.nation.co.ke/news/africa/Uganda-Bobi-Wine-released-on-bail/1066-4730816-cc4i39z/index.html

We in the free world have no idea what a struggle the Ugandan citizens exist in daily.

Can you imagine if we had to pay a tax for using “social media”?

Can you imagine how full our prisons would be if we were to be beaten, tortured and imprisoned just for having a different political opinion???

 

Quote from NTVUganda

“The High Court in Gulu has granted bail to Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi and 32 others with whom he had been charged with treason. The 33 suspects were arrested in Arua on 13th and 14th August 2018, following the end of campaigns to elect the Arua Municipality MP.”

And why hasn’t the Western world spoke out about the strife of Uganda’s citizens????

I ask you this cause it is far more important than Trump or Trudeau’s political photo opportunities.

Brevity Rock Uganda – One love Family

Frack Trudeau! Now Bring On The Hate ….

I have said from day one Trudeau was a wolf in sheeps clothing.

But, nothing will come of this because he has “nice hair, legalized pot and changed electoral rules so the numerous refugees can re-elect him.”

I won’t even mention the picture below …..

I wish the media would stop referring to him as our leader. He is not my leader – nor a leader to the average low-income Canadian. He is selling our Canadian values by the pound. Our homeless are sleeping in laneways because our hostels are full of refugees.

I am not surprised by this current allegation – let’s see what happens now. He is a fence sitting – Marxist pig.

And all who elected him into power because he legalized pot and had nice hair are as idiotic as those who voted in Doug Ford. Neither of these two idiots give a crap about low-income Canadian people.

https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.4723664?__twitter_impression=true

Look at these pictures and convince me he isn’t high while running OUR country. … bear in mind I’ve done drugs for fifty years …. I know “high” when I see it.

But, what do you expect when your mother is as classy as this, (panties were too expensive).

9 dead 16 injured – UPDATED – All brown people are not Radical Islamic’s.  Not all Radical Islamic’s are brown. 

Van ran down pedestrians at Young and Finch

So far 9 dead 16 injured

Many of the injured are “critical condition”.

Has not been said if it was terrorism. But, it wasn’t an accident.

As our Mayor is speaking on television there are a couple of immigrant punks in the background laughing and making heart signs.

So, chances are it was an attack and our goof of a Prime Minister offers his “condolences” he still has allowed illegal border crossings.

Speaking of which, his home province of Quebec is now going to “fast track” them to other provinces.

I know if I crossed the border illegally I’d be in jail.

Again, we haven’t been told the motive, but the way they are saying it was not an accident says volumes.

The world needs to wake tbe hell up and put an end to this shit.

No one is teaching their children about compassion or morals or basic manners.

My neighborhood is full of roving groups of very ignorant Muslim teens who think they are gods. They’re GOOFS!

You want to seek asylum you should have to go through the same procedures as other asylum seekers of non-Muslim faith.

If you enter illegally you should be arrested and deported like any other criminal.

And Trudeau should quit and go live with his radical Islamic friends.

He has made Canada a gateway for terrorists to possibly attack our neighbors.

Trudeau is a TRAITOR! He has shamed our nation worldwide.

And soon there is going to be a massive attack on our soil.

And it will be here in Toronto seeing as how we are one of the largest cities on Earth.

Shut the borders – you come here illegally then it’s obvious you have something to hide because to enter Canada legally is very easy compared to the countries in the rest of the world.

One faith, if you can call radical Islamic a “faith” should not have special privilege over all others.

Especially when they tell us to our faces they are going to over run and take control.

And our cross dressing idiot leader pays terrorists millions as a reward.

I will add to this as news and facts unfold.

So far they showed the guy being arrested.

Brown guy, heavy accent telling the cop to kill him. He had the balls to rundown innocent people but not the balls to use the gun
He’s in custody – Trudeau will probably give him millions for his trauma.

Here is a link to the take down video ………..

//www.cbc.ca/i/caffeine/syndicate/?mediaId=1217432643522

I think it is important that we all remember that ………….

NOT ALL BROWN PEOPLE ARE RADICAL ISLAMIC’S

NOT ALL ISLAMIC’S ARE RADICAL

Sikhs are nothing like radical Islamic’s. Very peaceful, well educated people who would be one of the first to stand and fight beside us against these terrorists.

All brown people are not Radical Islamic’s. 

Not all Radical Islamic’s are brown. 

MANY ARE WHITE. 

So, please,  think before you react or you will be no better than the terrorists are.

As angry as I am with our government and with the large number of predominately Syrian asylum seekers, we have to wait for all the facts before reacting.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT NOT ONE SINGLE ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSER SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO  REMAIN IN OUR COUNTRY.

They have shown their true colours by coming here illegally.

Could a Jamaican or El Salvadoran be allowed to stay if they entered illegally? Heck NO, NO, NO!

I strongly believe that if they are wearing thousands of dollars in gold and high end designer clothes, then they should be refused government aid.

Toronto is being destroyed by the influx of so-called “refugees”. You cannot rent an apartment if you are white and low income, if you own a pet, if you eat meat.

I was homeless for 13 months due to not being able to  compete with the refugees for apartments. Nine out of ten places you had to be Islamic.

Often I wonder if I woke up in their country.

Our disgrace of a Prime Minister and our man-beast equally useless Premier Mr. Kathleen Wynne have pushed aside their own countrymen to give preference to the refugees.

By promising landlords guaranteed rent allowed the landlords to raise the rents to way above the capability for any Canadian born citizen to qualify to meet the rental amount.

If you are on Welfare, Disability, working for minimum wage or a Pensioner you are forgotten.

NO ONE CARES FOR US OR OUR WELL BEING.

Ashamed of our mentally ill leader,whatshisname

And yet we “Canadians” won’t band together and do something other than bitch on FaceBook.

They, our government work for US – not WE for them.

If we voiced our opinion at Parliament instead of Facebook and Tim Hortons we could change things.

One thing I’ve learned being sixty years old is that we lower income citizens hardly ever show up to vote.

So garunteed the young potheads, the rich and the LGBTQRSTUVWXY will definitely re-elect this TRAITOR come next election.

Any other country in the world there would be tens of thousands in the streets.
Justin Trudeau

To the WORLD I offer my apology Trudeau may cause to or in your homelands

Following is a letter I have sent to my country’s so-called “Leader”. It is self-explanatory.

 

To the WORLD, on behalf of my fellow Canadians I offer my apology for what the actions of Trudeau may cause to or in your homelands.

 

Please feel free to copy and send this if you so desire.

 

There is a large difference between helping refugees and REFORMING EXTREMISTS!!!!

Mr. Prime Minister,
First off, let me state that YOU are extremely ‘Anti-Canadian’.
Secondly, with your love for these Islamic extremist you have made our country a laughing stock worldwide.
Thirdly, my baby brother gave a quarter of a century – over half his life, to protect his fellow countrymen from the same people you are embracing.
Fourthly, if you want to rule as a Socialist under the guise as a ‘Liberal’ then please go to Cuba and carry on the twisted ideals of your father and mother’s good friend Fidel Castro.
Fifthly, you make me ashamed to be Canadian.
There is far more to serving the citizens who you WORK for than legalizing marijuana and globetrotting at our expense claiming to fight the good fight for gender confusion, women’s rights and preaching how we should “embrace” the very people who would/will imprison or execute us for not following their so-called religion.
What do you suppose will happen to citizens like your mother if Sharia Law comes into effect?
Just the picture of her from Club 54 with no underwear would get her stoned – and not in the marijuana way.
All these LGBTQ groups you did blatantly support would be beheaded and/or tortured.
Personally, I would definitely be imprisoned and tortured for my beliefs.
You, Sir, are not representing the majority of Canadians, but rather the minority who have taken hold of the mainstream media and drowned out the silent majority.
If you have any democratic sensibilities then you would call an election.
The Liberal Party ideologies and your instilled Socialism taught to you by your parents, Castro and the Quebecois is NOT the Canadian way.
A utopian world will never exist in our lifetimes or for many lifetimes to come. Human nature has not evolved enough for this to be a reality in any form other than box office movies and good novels.
Everyone but YOU, can see a serious 9/11 attack coming to Canada or, worse, to our neighbours via Canada.
Which, the latter, will have great repercussions for all of us.
In conclusion, I have attached An open letter of which I totally agree with.
Sincerely;
Daniel Verner
An open letter to Justin Trudeau.
The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau.
Prime Minister of Canada.
Office of the Prime Minister.
80 Wellington Street Ottawa,
Email: justin.trudeau@parl.gc<mailto:justin.trudeau@parl.gc>. ca
01/29/2018
Prime Minister,
In light of your recent decision to rehabilitate returning ISIS terrorists. I believe I speak for the vast majority of Canadians when I say that this idea is utter lunacy.
This on top of your bewildering decision to give Omar Khadr $10.5 million dollars.
Maybe the Americans did treat him badly. Maybe he deserved it.
Maybe his rights under Canadian law were violated. Mr. Prime Minister if ever there was a case for use of the Not With Standing Clause Omar Khadr is it.
Cases like his are the reason we have a Not With Standing Clause.
Now you want to bring home ISIS fighters and somehow fix them.
We have veterans in this country that gave their very limbs, not to mention their psychological well being fighting to stop terrorist organizations like ISIS.
Now you are going to bring these people back to live and work next to them. Are you freaking nuts!!
What an insult. And all those that took their final ride down the Highway of Heros. They gave their lives!
These rehabilitation programs you plan for your travelling terrorists will no doubt consist millions of dollars in housing, training, health and education opportunities.
All while our veterans, our seniors and less fortunate go without.
Prime Minister do you know what you get when you sober up a drunken horse thief?
A sober horse thief.
These people are irredeemable. They cannot be reformed.
All you are going to get from these programs are warm healthy well educated terrorists. A snake is a snake!
I and countless other hard working tax payers in this country have no doubt that we are going to wake one morning to find that one or more of these deviants has committed some sort of barbaric act resulting in deaths
of dozens and the maiming of hundreds.
It will change this country forever.
Prime Minister don’t be a damn fool
I believe I echo the sentiment of millions when I say that this is too important an issue to leave up to you and your government to decide. You are asking Canadians
to bet their very lives that your rehab ideas will work.
It is our children that could end up blown to bits in some shopping mall.
This is real Prime Minister you do have the right to make any proposal you like, no matter how stupid.
Some things however need to be decided by the Canadian people
If you insist on pushing forward with these plans then it must be put to a vote.
Canadians demand that you call an election immediately to decide the fate of you
government and whether you should have the right to push forward with your ISIS programs and other policies regarding Islamist extremism in this country.
Canadians want an election right now!!!
Daniel Verner
Very Concerned Citizen
EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY
And here is a little something that will make you go, “Hmmmmmmmmm”.

Professional Athletes Are NOT “Gods”

​Why do all you fracking idiots worship these idiotic VERY OVERPAID athletes?  

How does disrespecting any nations flag or anthem help with racism?????

These goofs are suffering from “God Syndrome” because the media and fans have placed them on golden pedestals (literally) and treat them as gods. 

They are just fracking athletes.

 Most as stupid as crap. 

They are NOT policy makers or Gods. 

Like I  have stated, “Merely very overpaid athletes”

Nothing special about any of them.

I  think doctors and nurses deserve to be paid and worshipped like you worship athletes. 

It is why I absolutely refuse to watch or pay to watch any sport.

Illiterate walking anus’s making so much money they actually believe that we ‘common‘ people are their minions. 

Do not ever expect me to give a care what their opinions are.

DO EXPECT ME TO BE DISGUSTED WITH ANY ATHLETIC ANUS WHO DISRESPECTS MY NATIONAL ANTHEM OR FLAG.

They can go kneel in a dung heap. 

My brother, nor any other soldier, devoted their lives in the military to have some too tall, ball bouncing, drooling goof disrespect what they sacrificed for.  

Football, basketball or hockey is a sport!  

You want to voice a political opinion?

Become a fracking “elected” politician.

Until then, STAND FOR MY COUNTRY’S ANTHEM or go crawl back under whatever rock you crawled out of.

Society is so damn screwed up. 

We are teaching our youth all the wrong things just to remain “politically correct”.

To worship athletes and actors, (savour that word ‘actors’ and remember they are ‘acting‘), is just WRONG.

AND REMEMBER MOST HOLY BOOKS STATE ……

WORSHIP NO FALSE IDOLS OR PROPHETS”



WHEN WILL I UNDERSTAND? 

I am confused by all the confused people in this dawning of the Age of Confusion. 

To comprehend what is happening in society these days is beyond my capabilities. 

Society is confused and confusion is spreading like a plague. 

We have the “gender” confused.

I honestly do not get this one.

You have a penis? You are ‘male

You have a vagina? BINGO, you are ‘female‘. 

Born with both? You are a ‘Hermaphrodite‘.

(There, problem solved.)

Gender‘ confusion is a term society is presently using to misconstrue ‘sexual’ confusion.

Teaching our ‘maturity underdeveloped‘ youth that there is a complete alphabet of sexes is only adding to the stupidity of political correctness.

(Bring on the hate and anger. Regardless,  you know I am speaking truth.)

Everyone is praying for a higher wage.

I call this ‘monetary’ confusion. 

People think if we raise minimum wages and wages in general we will all have better life qualities. 

WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!#

The higher the wages, the higher the cost of manufacturing and services.

This raises the price of every item and services we purchase.

Minimum wage will still be ‘minimal’. 

The end result will be five dollar bread and ten dollar milk.

Which will bring us further protest and demands for ‘higher’ wages.

Best bet for all is to lower wages and close the gaps between lower, middle and upper class.

Or better yet, return back to our roots and re-invent the ‘bartering’ system.

(There, problem two resolved.)

Now we also have ‘political‘ confusion. 

Yes, some political parties are better than others. 

(When I cease laughing I shall continue)

Answer me this ………….

“Has any elected party in any country ever brought Utopia to the table?”

Nope!

Without sounding like the neighbourhood ‘Doom Sayer’, I must state that politics is and always shall be the greatest single confused habit of we humans.

Definitely it is somewhat linked to our genetic disposition for dominance over our fellow souls.

(Politics cannot be fixed.)

SORRY. (Insert sad face)

Next we have the swirling ugly pool of confusion we have labelled ‘Religion‘.

Over five thousand ‘Gods’ being worshipped on Earth, presently. 

And, singularly, each one is the ‘only’ true supreme being.

(Religion cannot be fixed.) 

It, too, is a left over genetic need for superiority over the masses.

Religious belief is no more than an implanted ‘hope‘ for a better existence. 

My solution?

Instead of being a ‘religious‘ person, try being a ‘Spiritual‘ soul.

For religion is man-made and faith is from soul.

(There, problem sort of solved.)

‘Racial’ confusion is a gigantic abscess of human flaws.

Again, a left over, undeveloped genetic emotion.  

A struggling anger wrought during Neanderthal days. 

Developed to secure dominance over our fellow man.

Eventually, racism will cease. 

It will be in tens of thousands of years when evolution and cross cultural breeding renders us all the same colour.

Yet, even then we will still possess racists thoughts.

Why“, you ask?

Because humans are rude and cruel. 

We believe ourselves to be the most intelligent and dominant species on Earth, but, yet we cannot speak to any other creature we share our planet with. 

But, the lessor animals communicate easily with us.

The average ‘Joe‘ does not realize that humans and the Earth in general are universally ‘young‘.

We are still breast feeding from the ‘Big Bang’. It shall be many, many, many millennia before we evolve through natural evolution to become the true beings the Cosmic Muffin meant us to become.

So, children, put on your adult diapers and calm down for a few thousand years and, (you may quote me), 

“All shall be well.”

Until then, I remain, Dann – just as I am. 

“Confused”.

REFLECTIONS OF SCARBOROUGH 

As I sit here on this sunny Sunday gazing out at my beloved Scarborough – that East Side slab of the Greater Toronto Area, I ponder. 

The GTA is famous for having as many trees as people. 

Below is a few pictures of the average view from any point in this marvelous city within a city.

As you can see, it’s a concrete jungle with a  green laced frock.

People  forget to look around at times. 

Walking their paths with their mind on their money and money on their mind. 

Heads forcibly bent down waiting for the next electronic message.

Blinded by the hustle and bustle of modern day survival. 

Prisoners of busy lifestyle and the constant worry of “How will I make it till cheque day”.

This saddens me. 

I am a victim, also. Many days I sit on the balcony oblivious to the trees, the birds and even the squirrels dancing to and fro.

Do the others hear the constant wail of sirens? I do. Each one bothers me as I am prejudiced into automatically believing,  “There was another shooting.”

And that is very sad, to instinctively think such.

I often try not to think so, but when you see the gang task force police vehicles racing ahead of the ambulances to block off the intersections so as the victim can possibly  get to the trauma centre in time, well, you realize trees are deceiving. 

I wish we had more trees so maybe my heart wouldn’t ache as much.

But, we do not and even if we did, I would still know the truth.

I have below a prime example of the attitude of many. 

I made this photo after seeing a t-shirt with the saying upon it. 

Unfortunately,  this is the attitude of many who would rather use humour to mask reality.
Sick or “dark” humour seems to have become the most common day coping mechanism.

What agitated me to no end is how the gangs are growing. How more and more are appearing. 

Used to be safe for me to send my fourteen year old son out at night to the store in the plaza across the street.

I do not do that anymore.  Even though the whole city knows “He is the son of Unkz”.

I go myself because even though I walk through the valley of danger, I fear no evil for I walk with Yahuwah and I have no fear of that I helped create. 

As soon as the Sun sets the plaza becomes Little Syria. The parking lot fills with fancy “Fast & Furious” knock-off cars. The noise levels rise and the punks gather.

It is a very heavy load to bear knowing that my decades of bad life choices assisted in adding to the gangs goals and the shadowy meanderings thusly wrought. 

I, and my acquaintances, were/are what hides behind the trees.

But, I hide no more. I now sit above the trees and gaze down, with tears in my eyes, at what society has become.

We all know that soon our Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyles are going to be cleansed.

Not by man and his violence.

It shall be Mother Nature or Yahuah or The Cosmic Muffin or whomever you believe your creator to be.

It will not be the “End of the Earth”. It shall be “The End of Days” – “The Supper of the Lambs”.

It will be when ONCE AGAIN the human population will be dealt a mighty blow and technology will fail.

And as has happened many times over many millennia,  society will return to the basics of living off the land and depending on each other.

A time for healing. A time for reflections. A time for appreciation of the gifts YAHUSHA has allowed us.

And the beautiful trees will then hide our “PRIDE” not our “SHAME”.

And life will go onward AGAIN. HOPEFULLY THIS TIME SOCIETY WILL LEARN …..

Until then, I remain, Dann – just as I am. 

A modern day Natsarim – a LightHouse beacon for all to see The Light.
