Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Ho ho ho ---Bah!

Well folks, here it is just past the middle of November and today I heard the first Christmas carol on the radio and The Mrs. Herself took our miniature Christmas tree out of the hall closet and put it on the dinning room table because her kids are coming to visit on the weekend.

As far as I'm concerned they can do whatever the hell they like because I won't feel like Christmas till December 24th.

Go north young man, go north!

Well they did it folks:

After 4 years of hard labour and heavy construction you can now drive Canada from sea to sea to sea!

At a cost of 300 million bucks the last leg of the northern highway from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk is open and you can now drive right up to the shores of the Arctic ocean! (For the villages' 1000 people that works out to around three hundred thousand dollars per person to build that road!)

BUT WHAT A VIEW FOLKS, WHAT A VIEW!



(Yup, that's it kids!) 

The way I see it anyway!

Enough is Enough!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

The Mrs. Herself is binge watching Christmas movies over on the 'Women's TV Network.

They started about a week ago and she watches one or two a day.

I can't take much more of all this sweetness and sugar  so I am going to binge watch "Bad Santa 1 & 2" with Billy Bob Thornton this afternoon!

They did WHAT?

Hey boys and girls, we got ourselves a full scale riot happening down there in the good ol' U. S. of A.

Here's the scene so far: Sean Hannity did a big number about Roy Moore being innocent of the allegations that he molested a 14 year old girl, and as a result the coffee maker Keurig pulled all its ads off the Fox TV network.

Now here comes the good part kids.

Fox news listeners went on an anti-Keurig riot and video taped themselves throwing the coffee maker machines off buildings, smashing them with baseball bats and running over them with their cars.

Now since these machines cost in the hundreds of dollars each I caljd dlj#d ns%@d*^lf sk#df, GJ^SD!

Sorry, just got a bit carried away there, but you get where I'm coming from eh? And you're starting to see just how nuts these people are............, right? (Sorry, that should be "alt-right!)

The way I see it anyway!

Sunday Morning Funnies # 885




 CALLER: Is this Gordon’s Pizza?

GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza!

CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry.
GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month.

CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza.
GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir?

CALLER: My usual? You know me?
GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.

CALLER: OK! That’s what I want …
GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten free thin crust?

CALLER: What? I detest vegetables.
GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

CALLER: How the hell do you know?
GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.
GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago.

CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore.
GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.

CALLER: I paid in cash.
GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.

CALLER: I have other sources of cash.
GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law.

CALLER: WHAT THE HELL?
GOOGLE: I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.

CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Whats App and all the others. I'm going to an island without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.
GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago…

You can laugh at this now.   But is this that far from happening?????

Is Trump the Antichrist?

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Being a confirmed Agnostic I don't put too much credence in a Biblical God, and certainly not the Devil.

However!

If I were a believing man there are certain things about Donald Trump that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end!

Is Donald Trump the antichrist? 

For some answers I went to a web site called Beliefnet.com

Paul the Apostle's Second Epistle to the Thessalonians.
Image result for evil trump clipartThe coming of the lawless one is apparent in the working of Satan, who uses all power, signs, lying wonders, and every kind of wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion, leading them to believe what is false, so that all who have not believed the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned
(Cyril of Jerusalem, in the mid-4th century, delivered his 15th Catechetical lecture about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, in which he also lectures about the Antichrist, who will reign as the ruler of the world for three and a half years, before he is killed by Jesus Christ right at the end of his three-and-a-half-year reign, shortly after which the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will happen.)

The identity of the Antichrist has long been a source of both debate and anxiety for Christians. The Bible warns that many people will be taken in by his lies or fail to recognize him for what he is. No Christian wants to be one of those who is deceived by this frightening and demonic figure.


The Bible is peppered with verses warning about this false prophet and alluding to the acts that will reveal him for what he truly is. The problem and source of debate comes from trying to weave dozens of cryptic remarks and prophetic hints into a clear picture. 
Here are five signs that hint at the Antichrist’s true identity.
Charisma
The Antichrist will sway many people to his side. This fact is undeniable based on the descriptions of the Antichrist throughout the Bible. He will be admired, and the odds are good he will be a smooth talker who will win people over through his ability to speak “great things.” Those who follow the Antichrist will become zealous and follow him unquestioningly. They will revile and persecute those who are leery of the Antichrist or disavow him.
Cleverness
The Antichrist will also be clever. Daniel 11 describes the Antichrist as taking control through “intrigue,” and Daniel 8 says he will be a “master of deception.” This supports the idea of the Antichrist as something akin to a charming, clever psychopath. That calculating cleverness will help bring the Antichrist to global prominence in multiple ways.
Another is the Antichrist’s ability to avoid what people would see as scandalous behavior. His actions, violent as they will be, will be supported by not just zealous followers, but by what the average person will recognize as legitimate authority.

Conqueror

Revelation 6:2 says that the Antichrist will go “forth conquering, and to conquer.” He will take over lands that did not belong to his people and hold them. His conquests will likely take place at least partly in the Middle East.

Economic Control
As well as gaining military control over much of the world, the Antichrist will gain economic control. In Revelation 13, the infamous number of the Beast is discussed, and it is related to the Antichrist’s control of the economy. Whether the Antichrist will use force or charisma to compel people to accept his mark is not stated. It could, however, be born of simple practicality. People may be presented with the choice of refusing to take this mark or losing their chance to participate in any sort of buying or selling. The Antichrist’s charisma and cunning would allow him to make this seem like a reasonable requirement of trade. With society accepting this new regulation, even those who disagree with the Antichrist oblige and take the mark so that they can feed their families.
Blasphemous
The Antichrist will be a blasphemous man. Recognizing the Antichrist will be difficult, especially in the Western World today where religion is often kept carefully out of politics. A clever man could very easily get away with a great deal of blasphemy, especially if he takes care to do it in ways that are common around him. But, the blasphemy of the Antichrist will eventually reach new and unheard of heights, and he will attempt to say that he is God. Until that time, however, no one is likely to look twice at a man who uses “Jesus Christ” as a curse when startled or angry.
SO, BELIEF-NET GOES ON TO SAY:
Christians Must Be Vigilant
Christians must be vigilant and be sure to maintain a questioning attitude. The spell of charismatic men and women can be dampened through logic. Be wary of things that sound perfect and of those who seem to have all the answers, especially in today’s divisive time. Reason serves as a strong barricade to the sort of zealotry such a clever, charismatic leader will breed.

But, before ya get all ga-ga over this stuff folks, remember that a lot of Protestants, and especially Lutherans, still think the Pope is the antichrist!!!!!

It's always the guy at the top.

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Everyone knows that old adage "The Buck Stops Here" which means the guy at the top is ultimately responsible for whatever his company, organization, government or institution is doing, or has done!

I have always had a rather similar understanding the any company, organization, government or institution is a direct reflection of the person running it! Whoever that person is, the embodiment of what he is directing takes on his/her personality, thoughts, ideals, prejudices, hopes, aspirations and endevours by shear force of synergy and osmosis.

Yes boys and girls the United States Government is slowly taking on the personality of Donald J Trump and until we can get rid of him he will continue to lead the us down the garden path. (We will have more on this tomorrow!)

I saw something today that immediately put everything into Perspective (God I love that word.) for me and I would like to share it!

When George W Bush was getting ready to leave the White house and turn it over to Barack Obama there was a plan laid out to quickly educate all the incoming civil servants and bureaucrats with their prospective responsibilities and duties so that the government would experience a smooth transitition!

Similarly, when Obama put in motion the wheels of transition everyone sat there with bated breath waiting for the Trump team to get in gear................., when in actual fact, with little or no exceptions..........., NOBODY SHOWED UP!!!!!

This, my friends prove my point that any organization is a direct reflection of the guy at the top!
