The mission continues, along with the resolve to insure that the non-corporate and non-governmental citizens of Fort Collins and the surrounding areas can enjoy free speech without encumbrances, and without the implied threat of identification and possible retaliation in the workplace for viewpoints that don't follow those of the flock. It should be an individual poster's choice whether they identify themselves or not, and on this site, such is your choice.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan's actions confirms my resolve in fighting for the American way, a way wherein one can speak in a crowd without fear, and wherein one may also be shouted down without penalty if such is merited. What the Coloradoan has done is make free speech dangerous to your personal safety and wellbeing, thereby squelching it.
Got Baaa? Not here…

Yes, three years have gone by… Actually three years an five weeks. How time flies, and how things have slowed down. The lack of participation has made me kind of ambivalent if this site continues or not. So much attempted hacking, at least 500,000+ attempts logged. Kind of depressing. We're also trying to convert this into a more spiritually-based site, with Satan trying his best through outside circumstances to stop it. Whatever…
We'll continue, hopefully with more content, until we run out of money, or until the Lord calls us back up. We're also going to move all the personal stuff to alreaud.net, where it belongs. If we get the muse, we'll write more content, like on Benjamin Gilmore, but otherwise it's up to y'all readers to provide the content, or not, as the Spirit leads you.
I'm so glad that last year is over… So many things that hurt or were not good for me financially. There were some good tings no doubt, but I don't look at 2013 as a positive thing.
There were some good personal things, and quite a few bad personal things, but those will henceforth be on my personal site (see alreaud.net), such as the loss of Mr. Pickles. The Benjamin Gilmore fiasco needs special mention, but that will be another story. The lack of input to the site is disenchanting, and I wonder if it is worth continuing this endeavor…
We'll keep plugging at it, trying to convert it to a more positive site, as that's what the Spirit is leading us to. Please contribute your input as commentators and readers to make this site more active and lively. After all, it was made with your comments in mind, not mine!
This is a collection of prayers that I've gotten from reading, from classes, and from different people. All are good, and as with all sincere prayer, are very powerful…
For Boundaries in Dating…
Heavenly Father, you know me better than I know myself. Please show me what is behind my lack of healthy boundaries and then guide my steps towards health. Show me, too, what good things to fill my life with, and where I can go to grow spiritually, personally, and intellectually, in my work, my hobbies, and my service to others. And most of all, I ask that You help me live out the truth that I need You more than any other relationship. In Jesus' name. Amen.
(From “Boundaries in Dating”, Dr's Henry Cloud & John Townsend)
Prayer to Have the Lord With Somebody…
(In the following prayer, "you" may be replaced with "me" if you are praying for yourself.)
May the Light of the Lord
Hypnosis is a very powerful tool. Like any tool it can be used for good, or for evil. That evil will include rape, and and/or infatuation similar to that created by a witchcraft love potion. Such leading to eyes wide shut inappropriate relationships. Recently I've had the experience of watching somebody in what appeared to be such a hypnotic state that made that person loose conscious control of their emotions. They lost their discretion around their kids, lost truthfulness, became deceitful, lost the ability to focus and concentrate, started dropping necessary daily tasks, and appeared to fall head over heals for an individual that should be totally incompatible because of their current life state, habits, and propensities.
Reading this, you may believe I hold a grudge, etc. Don't, because that would be an incorrect interpretation of what I am trying to do. I saw this technique in operation at a church, of all places, where the victim was pigeonholed into a corner, and some very curious eye contact occurred, where the victim because of the pigeonholing, couldn't escape. There have been many instances mentioned online, a few of which I relate below. But the gist of this post is to let the victim know that there is help, if they want it.
Go to a psychologist OTHER THAN THE ONE that is counseling you, ask that you be hypnotized, ask that the psychologist determine if you have been put under post-hypnotic suggestion (PHS), and if so, to have you woken up with full knowledge of the individual who did so, and what was the PHS. Folks, this conduct is a crime, similar to administering the date rape drug, GHB.
Nobody can do this for you, going to a psychologist. You may have even willingly consented after a point, for all you know. However, for the person I mention,
Saying goodbye to Mr. Pickles as been one of the hardest things I've had to do recently. Another torture to add to the tortures I endure daily, but that I deal with thanks to the healing of Jesus Christ and the total belief that God has a plan. A plan that I may not always understand, but that I accept because of His love.
He had to be relinquished to the Larimer County Humane Society, animal number A429589. If you can rescue him please do, he's a great cat,
Praise Jesus! Finally the prodigal son comes home. It was great, kind of indescribable. No I didn't spout off and speak in tongues, or not much anyhow. And no, I don't have the peace of mind that I should right now, because there was an “interferer” there (my fault for letting what transpired before and after the baptism bother me, and I have to give that up to the Lord and the Holy Spirit, which I'm sharing because it feels necessary. The church is not blind to the issue, but we have to approach this with the mercy and loving kindness of Jesus Christ himself).
It's such an uplifting spiritual and emotional experience, that it is very hard to describe accurately. The peace of Jesus Christ fell upon me, at least for a time, and I got tingles, teary eyed, weak legs, a weird feeling that I can't describe in my head. Adult baptism, folks, is akin to a marriage. The bridegroom is Jesus Christ, and you are the bride. It's a holy matrimony, born of water and the Spirit. I'll never feel alone again, because Jesus will always be there, in the best and worst of times.
So where to now? Wherever the Lord leads… I want to be a warrior for Christ, but that may not
This story is a story about deliverance. To many of my friends this writing will seem strange coming for me. Some may even abandon the friendship and run away screaming. That's your right, LOL. It's a scary concept, that our afflictions and addictions are the result of demonic oppression (not possession, don't confuse the two). Deliverance is definitely a concept foreign to many, including most of the body of the Church. To most, the best that can describe it is exorcism.
So I had deliverance done a few weeks back, at All Nations Church, 1412 Webster Ave in Fort Collins, (970) 493-7938. I went into the deliverance with full skepticism. I believed it to be something akin to hypnosis or suggestion. Folks, I tell you the truth, I was totally WRONG!
So I got delivered of the demon of addiction, and the demon of anger. It is astounding. The following occurred:
Thanks to the goodness of a friend, I was inside since approximately July 9th. But all good things must come to an end, and so has this last stay indoors. So it's “out back” again, LOL, for another spell under the stars with organic air conditioning.
I guess I can't complain, other than the rents in Fort Collins are such that it makes it hard to find a place. One place I looked at that allowed kitties was $640, So that's at least $1280 to move in, not counting any of the amenities like Internet, land line, and Fort Collins Utilities. Can't do that, as it's my whole wad, basically, then I get to eat wish sandwiches. Sorry, not this time around… We'll continue to look until we find the right place at the right price for one guy with his cat.
Today was the USA Pro Challenge. What a way to make downtown a useless endeavor! I wonder what the downtown vendors
I'm speaking about Judge Robert Rand, mentioned in the story I posted on July 14th. That is over a month ago! Why do I compare this to Broderick? Because Judge Rand is getting approximately $500 per day while being AWOL, absent, on leave, whatever.
What is bothersome is that the legal system in the county doesn't feel the need to answer to the taxpayer. The answers about what has happened to Judge Rand, and why he isn't performing his duties while drawing his full pay are not forthcoming. Doesn't that bother anybody?
