Ha!

That's a catchy tune..

But it didn't seem to work, when I clicked on it.

Here, is another copy:

And yes, I like Donald Trump.

And I predicted, he would win, way back on March 17th:

And, on "the middle east"?

God don't care, about the middle east.

It can go to blazes.

The sooner, the better.

A bunch of rag a muffins, and camel jockeys.

A few nukes?

And we'd have a nice parking lot.

Don't get me started..

Heh.

Actually.. all God cares about?

Is "New JerUSAlem"

That's it.

The rest

Is a nuisance..

The USA has only 4% of the population, and yet it consumes 47% of the earth's resources.

The rest of the world? Exists..

But there's barely a reason for it.

Civilization, started in the middle east, for only one reason..

"No furnaces invented yet"

That's it

The only reason.

"It was warm year round"

So, God started there.

But, has long since renounced that barren patch of scrub brush..

And the sooner you nuke it into the stones ages?

The better off, the world will be..

...and did those feet in ancient times not tread New England's fair and pleasant lands? Jesus, the people of the Middle East, the enemies of freedom and democracy and God Himself....will soon see a bright unassailable light.

The purpose, of Jesus?

Of Lord Jesus.

Is.. "a messenger"..

Always has been, that..

But what, do I teach you?

Ha!

"Ann Landers stuff"..

How to prevent wrinkles..

How to quit drinking..

How to quit smoking..

Tell you that 'hemp is fine', and all over, the bible.

Tell you about "miracle mineral water", that makes you calm, as a cucumber..

Tell you, "you need sex every day!", or your hair will fall out, and you'll get prostate cancer.

Tell you that porn, is fine.

Masturbation, is not a sin, and not even in, the bible.

Tell you that, "sugar is cancer food", and ages you "two to one"..

How to "become best friends with your guardian angel (God)"

And then, "how to talk to God", who is right next to you.

And become best friends..

You know, things like this.

Mindless drivel..

That, if you follow?

"You will be like me"

A clone!!

Of Jesus??

Yes

The chicks will dig you..



All Jesus

Ever teaches you?

Is "how to be like me".

My only mission..

Default The faces of meth.. The faces of death..

The faces of Meth: Horrifying before and after pictures reveal devastating effects the drug has on addicts



The Faces of Meth project was launched by police in Multnomah County, Portland in 2004.

The faces of Meth: Horrifying before and after pictures reveal devastating effects the drug has on addicts | The Sun

This is the ravaging affect that meth has on the human body.

In a horrifying series of 'before' and 'after' shots, police in Oregon have shown just what a devastating affect the drug has.

The pairs of photos, which in some cases have been taken mere months apart, show staggering changes in appearance.

Offenders featured have gone from young and fresh-faced to haggard and sunken-cheeked.

This shocking photo series entitled Faces of Meth, was launched by police in Multnomah County, Portland in 2004.

They were trying to steer people away from using the highly addictive drug.



Meth users lose a lot of weight, giving their faces a sunken look.

The project was the brainchild of Detention Center deputy Bret King.

He started trawling through old prison archives to find mug shots of drug addled suspects.

King then spent hours pairing up the photos of repeat offenders to show how meth had changed them.

He aimed to create a series that was as shocking and unflattering as possible.

King, then 39, said: "I've made it my business to go through the mug shot system every day.

"I've made it my business to go through the mug shot system every day.”



This woman has aged far more than seven years after becoming addicted to meth.

Theresa Baxter, 42, is almost unrecognizable after five years of taking meth.

She told OregonLive that she had experienced everything except death.

Her photos were taken around three and a half years apart.

In the first picture, when she was arrested for identity theft and fraud, she is healthy and youthful.



Addicts commonly get scabs over their face.



This woman has sunken cheeks and has a weak pallor to her face.

But in her ‘after’ shot, she is wrinkled, and haggard, with a zombie expression.

She told the site: “It’s scary. There are no words to describe it.

I can’t stand to look at myself in the mirror.”

In 2004, she had lost 40 lbs and only had two teeth left.



Now over 10 years later, OregonLive has revisited the stories of many of the people featured in the photo series.

Their stories have varied widely over the course of the decade.

While some have decided to change their lives and go clean, others are still happy to be hooked on the drug.



This woman is completely unrecognizable after meth ravaged her body

Theresa Baxter still lives in Portland, but relatives would not allow OregonLive to interview her again.

King is still fighting to get young people to stay away from drugs.

He said: "I was well aware of Faces of Meth's shortcomings. I didn't want to do a Faces of Meth, Part Two."

The highly addictive substance leaves users unrecognizable.



Chemicals eat away at the brain tissue as the body starts to stop craving food.



This woman has a haunted look in her eyes.

When taking a hit, meth can make users awake and alert.

Their senses become highly focused and many lose their appetite while high.

Meth addicts most commonly have sunken cheeks from rapid weight loss.



Over 10 years later, many of those featured in Faces of Meth have decided to go clean.

Their bodies are ravaged by the drug, both inside and out.

Users lose their teeth and get scabs and dark circles on their face.

Addicts also age rapidly as the toxic chemicals eat away at their brain tissue.



Theresa Baxter pictured in 2001 (left) and three years, five months later..

This, is probably the best one.

Teresa, was pretty..

Three (3) years later?

She is an old hag..

Who, would not be touched

By a rabid dog.

Three years..

Default Chain smoking Kim Jong-un QUITS the cigarettes.. If he can do it? So can you..

Chain-smoker Kim Jong-un QUITS the cigarettes in huge bid to make North Korea smoke-free

KIM Jong-un has ramped up North Korea's anti-smoking campaign after deciding to ditch cigarettes, according to reports.



North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has reportedly kicked the habit.

Kim Jong-un QUITS the cigarettes in bid to make North Korea smoke-free | The Express

Kim, renowned for his love of tobacco and cheese, is regularly spotted puffing away in images released by Pyongyang's media agency.

But the brutal tyrant has not snapped with a fag in hand for more than two months – sparking claims he has decided to quit.

His regime is believed to have set up research stations in major cities so North Koreans can follow in his footsteps.

Health warnings are required on every packet on cigarette sold in the hermit state, much like in the US.

And officials have been ordered to dish out medication for a host of diseases caused by the deadly habit.

But Kim now wants them to develop more tobacco substitutes in a desperate bid to slash the number of smokers.



The brutal tyrant is renowned for his love of tobacco and cheese.

A spokesman for the state-run Korean Central News Agency last night boasted about the scheme.

He said: "The number of non-smokers is increasing with each passing day."

The number of male smokers in North Korea fell by eight percent between 2009 and 2013, he added.

Earlier this week outspoken US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said he would be willing to meeting with Kim.

Washington has repeatedly urged Kim to scrap the North's nuclear weapons program amid fears he could spark a world war.

But Trump said, "I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him. At the same time I would put a lot of pressure on China."


Chain smoking Kim Jong-un QUITS cigarettes..

If he can do it?

So can you..

So quit today

I'm asking you..
