Well, the U.S has decided upon their so called “rescue plan” !!, yes it involves borrowing  around 700 billion dollars from I don’t know who. It is strange if you think about it because everybody is borrowing from everybody everywhere all the time and it becomes like a real twisted spider web of borrowers and lenders… in the end i wonder who is gaining from this… its not the ones in need!

I always said to myself not to spend what you don’t have however currently people see it as an asset with borrowed (somebody else’s) money, more debt – more rich!, while its… noooot! Am I the only guy in the world who thinks this ?!?!   AAARGH!

Take a good look on the financial system out there, it all encourages us to borrow money so we can afford something big and fancy now! It all encourages us to tie ourselves up to a system which will enslave mankind as you now it. Our soul might belong to God, but the rest   ajajaj…  we seem to owe some bank!

The system build around this relationship of owing somebody else, creates a quite unnatural bond, a forced bond that ties people up and takes away any form of freedom. To lend out money is to retrieve power, or be given access to set boundaries and in the end the lenders require total loyalty… or else! There is no free will here friend.

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7 (KJV)

Personally I don’t owe anybody anything, free from it all, every 50-öring I come by is mine (mohohaha)… or Gods, but the point is not to borrow and not to spend cash which ain’t yours, get it?… jao

A great commercial from Discovery

AAAAH, FINALY! This is a famous swedish stand up comedy guy, who gets to do a show in church, obviously he jokes about christians and jesus…! but with a serious undertone. If you cant manage these dont look. Unlike people who think it is tabu to make fun of their own religion, I believe it is healthy to see on yourself from an outer perpective, and if you are secure in what you believe, there is no reason to think otherwise. My best friends make fun of me, because our relationship allows that freedom. As a matter of fact, if I make fun of you, it means I llke you!

Personaly I think Betner did a good job sticking to some boundaries…which unfortunetely made it less funny! He is quite learned and knows the bible I must say… and ps God likes to crack up as well jao!

If you want to grasp the real picture of who I truly am. Check this out. 

Freedom jao.

Ethnocentric… what in the world does that mean Bob? Well ladies and gents, this word is one of the basic reasons behind every war and conflict in human history! It briefly means that one sees the world only from ones own culturally point of view and believe others should do the same.

You see, other people in the world does not view on issues as you do my friend… no they see it differently. And so the best way of solving any kind of disagreement, is by first trying to understand how the other part sees upon the issue, and why he or she does not agree with you, and obviously ask them to do the same. After this is done, it is so much easier uniting and reaching to wise conclusions.

But nooo, I am right, I have principals, this is not discusable, I do what I think is right…. I am ethnocentric! Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing bad about striving for justice, but do understand that other people who are going in the opposite direction are many times doing what they truthfully believe is right as well.

Just to name an example; I am christian and with this comes certain values in my life. Then there are people who truly are Muslim believers (who knows, they might be stronger in their faith than me!) and they have a different set of values. Now if I tell them: Man, you are just dead wrong! They will tell me exactly the same thing!… leading to nothing but more frustration and the mere obsession of winning the argument. However would I choose to see/understand it from their point of view… maybe it would change from a discussion to a conversation and later on to a fika.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23
Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

The greatest anthropologist of all time was probably Jesus himself, He became man, grew a beard, had to eat, couldn’t just fly around, got a favorite colour, had to use sandals and became generally vulnerable and limited and went through so many human-culturally things that he actually can tell you like:

‘ey dude, I know what its like!… so peace out bro’

Rinkeby, the underestimated suburb in Stockholm, my home. Some people stay away from this part of town, its full of immigrants (like moa), immigrant stores, kebab-hangouts, tropical animals, rainforests and other scaaary things like immigrant drug-variations called khat. Personaly I see it as a mini international country inside another, much like the Vatican City in Italy, we have our rules of dresscode, our own religion, own foreign policy… and I am the pope!  Check out some country-pictures from the royal balcony.

AJAJAJ, I have managed to get sick, my nose is slurving (new word!) and my head thinks I am in a jet-lag… yes sometimes my head isn’t that smart at all but believe me, it has nothing with me to do… because I am smart! I wish I had Norton Anti-Virus in-planted in my brain… all I would have to do is get rid of this virus and KABAM… health is back!… but I guess praying works as well =)

Further notice… My brother Jeroen has given me a blender, which I am using every day… I love my blender, and my blender loves me. And now when I am home and sick, we get to spend a lot of time together, me and blendy.

blend-blend

Well well, this is one of thoe most awesome picture-sites ever…

The big picture

Listen to some great music with ASA


Tomorrow I will turn 27 years, some people say congratulations, others go like -oh, I’m sorry man!  =)

There is nothing wrong in getting older its just that you wish you had accomplished so much by now! and wouldn’t wasted all that time on doing things just for the heck of it such as having a level 70 Rouge on World of Warcraft, seeing every possible movie there is, reading a book on blow-fishes and how they live, spending an abundant time on writing on a blog  (ops!).. But I guess quality of life also means doing these pointless things and being able to enjoy the moment although I will forget all about it the next day! Old is Gold!

Are there things I regrett? : yes! Do I wish I had accomplished more? : yes! Do I wish I was a bit younger? : yes….. Am I happy? : yes.

God bless!

ps… are you going to wish Bob a happy birthday?: yes

Done some reading and it appears that BBC recently did a survey in 22 countries, asking people who they belive would improve Americas relation with the rest of the world. Well to summon up …

46 percent voted for Obama and

20 percent for Mcain and

34 percent said they where not shure!

AH… In Canada which after all is the neighbouring country 69 percent voted for Obama, Italy 64%, France 62% and Germany 61%…

ONLY in USA… in a new survey it reveals that Obama gets 47 percent of the votes and Mcain 46! How in the world is it that the rest of the planet, people like Obama vastly more than Mr Mcain … while only in The US, it appears to be equal?

No matter the reason, I believe the rest of the planet also should get their say in this election… (or at least the 100 countries America has put under their military control !!) Anybody more affected by an election should be able to vote… otherwise it cant under any circumstances be called a democratic system. We live in a global world where no nation stands excluded from neighbours around. Obviously its hard to have a global election for the president-post in every country, but think about it… don’t you believe a great deal of people in Iraq are more affected by this election than a whole lot of people in the USA… ? I do! If the US e´wants all this global military/financial responsibility, they can atleast hear what the world has to say… jao!

But hey … anywho anyways anywhat, that just me right!?

AJAJAJ, John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate, Palin just answered in an interview that she doesn’t believe global warming is our human fault. I used to like this woman but now I seriously believe she doesn’t got much up there!

“What is your take on global warming and how is it affecting our country?

A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I’m not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.”

Didn’t get the job I so long had prepared and hoped for… crap! This evening on our worship-practice we sang the song blessed be the name of the Lord. Both when the sun shines and when it most definitely doesn’t. Today it didn’t shine at all, as a matter of fact it was really not shining, lots of rain, acid rain, tornado’s, lightnings and tropical storms as far as the eyes could see. Hence the song nearly didn’t manage to come out… honestly it was harder than I thoughtit would be.

Eventually it did… and then… as a symbolically spiritual electric hairdryer it dried my silly mind in focusing on where my true value lies…. not in what i know or do … but in what i am to U.

and as they just mentioned in exreme home-makeover… ‘there are lot of things to think about, but nothing to worry about’

peace jao/b

My dear niece Mika, the sweetest person in the world.
