Copycat Maybe?


The Following intertitle.png

There has been a show that I started watching called The Following. I first  like any other show although it was on Season 2 and I felt that I was too behind to catch up, I thought that  may be watching for recreational time would “suffice”. However after the 2nd episode, the Lord indeed showed me that it was for a purpose.

The show has a great story line because it is really based upon how a CULT in 2014 could happen – how it obtains its followers, how the leader manipulates existing followers to recruit new followers.

It comes on EST on Mondays at  9pm on FOX – with Kevin Bacon – there are certain parts that I would call my son Jared in to watch with me and as a scene would happen, I would quickly explain to him how it happened and what he should do in an instance like this etc.

From things happening at restaurants, bus stops and most importantly school settings – Which comes to the point of this blog post –  On a scale from 1 to 10 my son’s current school district is considered an “7.75” and the next town over is a  “8.5 ”  so of course wanting my son to obtain a BETTER education I was pondering on a few things.

However, this morning in a “neighboring” school district that I have been contemplated moving into for the last year has had a tragic morning – I INDEED believe that this HORRIFIC incident that transpired was connected to the TV show, The Following –  I am NOT saying that the high school student was apart of a cult but “spiritually speaking”…….. you have to watch just only one episode of the show in regards to what happened to see what I am saying.

Politics

My Son’s PERSONAL Observation –

Okay – my son knows about politics and the things that occur in the world via CNN, the regular news stations and the things that I discuss with him – It is going on 9 pm and I am fussing at him in regards to getting himself together for school and he is ironing his clothes while chatting with me all at the same time……

Then from out of no where – he says mom remember every time there is a new POPE for the Catholic Church it is all over the news for days and it takes over the programs on television. I said yes, he said isn’t the POPE in another country and again, I answered yes.

Yall ready for this 11 year old’s child DISCOVERY!!  >>>> His next statement / question to me was this…..

Well mom, I don’t get that President Nelson Mandela died and he did so much for blacks and whites, was in jail and forgave the people for being mean to him then ran for president right? AGAIN … I said yes baby – He states, why didnt the media cover Nelson Mandela’s funeral on most of all the news channels like they do when they vote for a new POPE or when PEOPLE FROM ENGLAND GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!

Okay y’all, that was enough for me right there!! Whew – my son is indeed amazing! I taught him good and God surely is molding his little mind for such a time as this!

God Bless and Good Night!!

Today’s Wow Moment –


I am not a huge Oprah #FAN but I really thought that this was very interesting….. I think that it maybe a little “safe to say” that she ONLY replied back, due to the negativity of the comment!

Relationships

Online Foolishness


LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS PICTURE IS FOR REAL!

I was with a girl pal of mine and we both was online and she set up a profile page for me… Now I told you guys a few weeks ago why online dating “is not my thing” There was this guy who reached out to me… and I was like he probably dont even dress like that because the profile photo was in a business suit and all of his others were “hood / street” clothing.. which is a HUGE NO – NO for me! I dont care if it is online….off line..in the grocery store…at the mall…at church – REGARDLESS!

Well she started replying to him “for me” and he turned out to be a HORRID liar and she was soo appalled and upset because he said in an email that he was a producer and sent links to his work and 2 of them were documentaries and she is like see…. he seems to be ok. I told her that ANYONE who is about anything would NOT give out so much information about themselves up front so quickly…

But moving right along with the SILLY but so REAL story…..I said he is trying to be too cocky or maybe presenting his information so that he can be seen as a legit person maybe.. BUT I still dont trust he is all put together like he is trying to present… So he sent one more link stating this was another project that he did….

( of course I already deleted my picture and account info and made her promise she would NEVER do nothing like this again….)

At that moment I told my friend that he is NOT LEGIT and she was like you are soo against meeting people online…I said no – it is all about PRESENTATION!! I was trying to explain to her if the guy was STEPHEN SPIELBERG, TYLER PERRY or RON HOWARD they would not be sending links of their work at all because they would want to see if the woman is interested in them rather than their money – fame and success…. She still thought that I was being too judgemental…..

 

Lo and behold..we opened the last link that the fake producer sent and it was a very CHEAP – LOW BUDGET – SEMI PORN GANGSTER FLICK!!!

I laughed so hard while she fussed and almost cussed at the computer! ……

So now do you see why the photo in this picture is VALID IN MY BOOK!!!! LOL

I told her to  stop-sign trying to HURRY me along to be with someone – Wisdom tells me when to say YES or NO!
