In a world full of questions, sometimes it’s nice to find an answer or two. Well, today, we’re providing ten of them. The questions come from my Twitter feed, the first ten questions I came across this morning that was not about wrestling, and now, it’s time to give some answers. Always fun and always insightful, at least so far as I’m concerned. Are you ready? Let’s do this.

What does being an atheist mean to you?

Well, I’m not an atheist so it’s hard to understand what it’s all about and means to anyone else. I look at an atheist and generally I see a person that’s usually well educated, but lacking in imagination, insightfulness, or faith. They only believe in what they can see with their own eyes, the science of facts, but don’t have the courage or ability to take that chance and believe that there is more than just a single picture, but a full story and background as well. All they see is the cover of the book and not the pages inside. I remember seeing in a great movie on time on the discussion of religion that it’s not what you believe, but that you believe. I can buy that because not being able to believe leaves a person alone, lonely, and a shell of a person, empty inside. And when I see someone who proclaims to be an atheist, I just see a person who is empty inside and lacking, looking for a way to fill that void. And until they find something to believe in, they’ll always be looking.

Has your opinion of the medical community changed because of the pandemic?

I think that many in the medical community are afraid to speak up and tell what they really think and believe about the pandemic and COVID because of the pressure from the Government and higher-ups and their mandates, etc. I don’t like seeing that, but I understand where they’re coming from. If they speak up and tell what they honestly think and feel instead of sticking to the narrative and propaganda, they could lose their jobs and have their careers ruined. But some of the medical professionals that I know and have spoken to have been honest, with their doubts and opinions of the Government lies and misinformation, and I appreciate and respect that. So as far as my opinion goes, yes it has changed. I see that many are going to do what they’re told instead of what’s best for the patient, me. And I see that others are actually more concerned with the patients than trying to keep the bosses happy and the narrative straight.

Why did the judge seal the intelligence documents after the Ghislaine Maxwell verdict?

The documents that were discovered in the prosecution of Ghislaine Maxwell should be released to the public. And every single person listed as being a customer or associate of Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein, regardless of who they are, should be investigated, arrested, and prosecuted, period. The Judge is protecting the clients and trying to cover everything up. It’s just that simple and it’s wrong as hell. I saw last night that all charges against the guards that were supposedly watching Epstein, who didn’t kill himself, but fell asleep on duty while all the cameras weren’t working, are being dropped and the investigation is being ended by the DOJ. Why? All of this is one big cover-up to protect those in power, the ones really in control of our Government and their friends. It all goes together and it’s all sickening and wrong… period!

Do you believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven?

If you want to go to Heaven, you have to accept Jesus in your heart. That’s the truth.

What does God mean to you?

He’s the father, the great creator, the reason we are, and forever will be. He is the reason we’re here and the Lord over us all.

What kind of heart do you have?

Not quite black, but kind of a dark gray thanks to the many times it’s been abused, stepped on, crushed, and ignored. For some, it still beats strongly, but for others, it has gone from flesh and blood to a piece of stone.

Do you use online banking and if so what do you think of it?

I use it only to check on my account, my balance, etc. It’s convenient so it’s a good thing, at least for now.

Have human beings always been this dishonest and disingenuous, or is it new?

There have always been good people and there have always been bad people. It’s only that now that the bad people seem to be standing out more often and making their presence felt. The good people are still here, but it’s just harder to see them.

What does being an American mean to you?

It means I live in the world’s greatest country. True, our current leaders and politicians are pretty crappy and not worth a damn, but this country has long established that we’re the place everyone wants to come and live. We have rights and freedoms that don’t exist anywhere else in the world, and even though some will try and deny us those rights, it will never happen. This is America and I’m proud to be an American. We fucking rock!

What do you think the secret of life is?

It is who you are, doing what you have to do, following the dreams that fill your head, and being the absolute best you can be in anything and everything. Plus have lots of sex, lots of fun, listen to rock & roll, and own a cat.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have about anything at all, feel free to give me a shout. Until the next time, probably sometime in 2022, be safe and have a very Happy New Year. I’ll see you on the other side. Take care.
