~ BITTER FRUIT: The wise Man said “By their fruits ye shall know them.” Sadly, Ezra is finding out the exact quality of the cadre of tormentors, malcontents, bullies, soft-fascists and other bully-dolts who are trying to bury him with complaints and legal mud. He’s the biggest and loudest target out there: if they can take him down (the calculation goes), the rest of us rebel scum will fall. That’s the theory, anyway. But you’ll know them by what they do: so these various assailants are not interested in rights, freedoms, or even, necessarily, the issues they yell most loudly about. They’re hoping and working for one thing: Shut Up, Ezra. Go away, Ezra. Submit, Ezra. But above all, just shut up. This is a war. We need to support the main targets, keep donating and praying and encouraging. The bad guys (and even the people of good will who just legitimately differ with us) are very patient, and think we’ll lose interest or courage, and just pack up and go away. Let’s not prove them right. ~

~ TRUE CONFESSIONS.. whilst blogging, The Binks watches DVDs, longer Youtube & Google vids, and TIVOed TV. The fave shows right now? Deadliest Catch (those crazy-brave Alaskan crab-fishermen), and Gene Simmon’s Family Jewels. No accounting for taste, but both are full of infotainment, reflection on character in modern life, and are decently done. Too much Discovery channel disaster-pr0n or shark-mongering is tiresome. So if you’fre feeling grateful for this blog, why not buy The Binks a season of Family Jewels, or a signed copy of a Crab-Fishing book from two of the captains from the show? Keep The Binks Happy whilst he’s blogging! ~
