Have you ever been in a food fight? Laurel and Hardy had a good pie fight in ‘Battle of the century’ 1927. Then there is a good food fight in ‘Animal House’ with John Belushi 1978. But my favorite food fight movie of all time has got to be Tony Curtis in ‘The Great Race’ 1965 with Jack Lemmon, Peter Falk and Keenan Wynn. It is a pie fight to end all food fights. according to Wikipedia, that pie fight took over 5 days to film and over 4000, thats right… four thousand pies were thrown. If you have not seen it, the pie fight is on youtube and the director Blake Edwards dedicated it to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. https://youtu.be/jhIH1R1Cbho
In this pie fight, even the Great Leslie, played by Tony Curtis stays clean while flying pie debris is hurled around him. Pie innards are flying in all directions and everyone becomes soiled by what is being thrown. (The scene took a long time to film because in order to make it seem that Tony Curtis is unscathed, he had to change cloths several times). That is the fun and the danger of a pie fight. But it was in the late 1960’s that I will never forget a fight were shtuff was being hurled. It was the San Diego zoo and my grandpa took me to see the animals. We had meandered to the gorilla pen and watched these strong, huge gorillas interacting with each other. Now the enclosure was seperated from the zoo visitors by a large mote. A few of the visitors started acting like adolesence by performing the obligatory gorilla act of grunting while scratching their armpits and making faces at the gorillas then laughing. One particularly large gorilla seemed to become annoyed and stood up and beat his chest. At that moment my grandpa pulled me behind a large boulder that was on our side of the mote. It seemed that the gorilla grabbed a handfull of poo and flung it so hard it splattered very loudly on that boulder so much that poo splattered onto the fools acting like apes. Thank you grandpa.
Well, we just finished a very long and ugly political poo flinging contest. Each side had their designated poo flingers. It was on TV, radio, newsprint (who still reads the newspaper?) I got mail, robo-calls and there were paid people running up and down the sidewalks flinging political poo. You know, the young students paid to get signatures from good minded people just wanting to be left alone. Just like in Animal House and The Great Race, nobody was safe from flying political poo. Well, now that it is over and a President elect person has been chosen, isn’t it time for a virtual cleansing of all the poo? I was hoping for at least a few days of rest from flying political poo BUT NO SUCH LUCK. Now, we are bombarded on the news of Hillary supporters advocating an actual war. Goups of Hillary automatrons marching in the streets with the 1960’s style chant ‘hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go’. Some even burned Donald trump in effigy. The man has not even taken his oath of office yet and the crybaby pissy pants are at it with their childish tantrums. It reminds me of the great republican riots of 2008 and 2012 when Barrack Hussein Obama took his oath of office. Stores were burned down and police were shot, cars lit on fire and, oh wait, none of that happened did it?
We have done our children a great disservice. We have let the progressives take control of our schools and allowed them to turn our learning institutions into ‘Halls of Indoctination’. These young skulls full of political poo are brought up to believe that life must be made fair… and fair is that they get their way. They believe they have a right to to other peoples money to support their causes and that they need to ‘Make Life Fair’ no matter who it hurts or how much it costs. The poo is still being flung. We, as a society must put a stop to this ‘who flung dung’ attitude. The silent majority has been too polite for the last 20 years, and now we have let a loud and violent minority chase our God and our beliefs away. It is time to grab your shield and stand your ground.
Ephesians chapter 6:10-18 teaches us how to put on our spiritual armor and prepare for spiritual battle, and with so much poo being flung, we need that armor more now than ever.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” Eph. 6:10-18
Stand your ground.
