No one likes truth

I love making memes. It will probably be a leading job in the future. But it probably won’t pay anything. The entertainment value can be enough of a reward.

This meme reminds me how funny it is that we are still debating flat earth in the 21st century. When you study history you begin to realize that we really haven’t progressed that much.

This meme also reminds me that people only seek truth until they hit something they don’t want to hear. Then they claim to still be seeking truth though anything they find will be distorted into a lie.

I got interested in journalism in college but chose business once I realized that journalism was nothing than organized gossip and a propaganda tool.

If my goal for this blog is to promote truth, I probably won’t make a lot of money. If any since money is a measure of value and we don’t really value truth like we say we do.

I guess it will have to serve a higher purpose and I will have to find a good day job. The benefit of a free blog is it will live on long after I’m gone.

The Killing Series by O’Reilly

What is with former Fox news anchorman Bill O’Reilly in recent years? I used to see a whole bunch of books by him where he was always talking about killing someone off:

  • Killing Jesus
  • Killing Lincoln
  • Killing Patton
  • Killing Kennedy

Bill is apparently on the warpath again. But maybe I need to actually read his books before I assume anything. I probably won’t, I just said I probably need to before I judge.

I can think of a number of people who probably wish to see Killing O’Reilly. But I am going to leave that one alone. I never have been a fan of O’Reilly. Although I don’t have much of a problem with Glenn Beck. The latter is most likely too conservative for me though.

Following my dreams and reporting the news

Most people figure out what they wanted to be in their teen years. Few actually pursued it, either when they realized how much work it was or they made the mistake of settling down too quick with a family. Or they are afraid of stepping out in faith and pursuing it. Sometimes it’s a little of all three.

My dream job was working in the media. I wanted to be a disc jockey at first, because I loved music. I am not much into public speaking, and a slight speech impediment doesn’t help.

During my first and only year at University, I got more into writing. I should have been doing that the previous ten years. Just like I should have stuck with that but chose to try and climb a ladder in retail instead. Not knowing why I was so unhappy at work.

Now I look back on it and realize even if I had dedicated my life to being a journalist, just how corrupt the media is. Truth doesn’t sell well and you have to promote propoganda on either the Left or Right to have a job. It is just like being a doctor, I read an article where a doctor said if he had to do it all over again, he would have chosen a different path just due to the corruption in the healthcare industry.

That’s the benefit of blogging. Although it’s hard to know what is factual on a blog too since many bloggers bend the truth just to get hits. There are a few networks coming up that focus on the positive in the world, such as the Good News Network and Upworthy. You can also write short stories and maybe a column for a newspaper or a magazine.

Your spiritual calling is the same no matter what. You only need a license to be legitimate as far as this system is concerned. The higher purpose is bigger than money.

That is why Jesus said you can’t serve God and money. You know who you are serving by what your end goal is.
