Arrogant People Suck Bo Jack Russo on Nov 27, 2008
* Tags: double standard, imagined betterment over others, reflection of self in a mirror, walk on water
Bringing the self proclaimed great back down to earth.
Can you walk on water? I don’t think you can, Not until you pass And walk with Jesus Hand in hand, No different from the rest Just like an ordinary man. You see yourself up high With pretense all abound You imagine you are better Than us here on the ground, You try to sit in judgment Who anointed you with crown? Why do you profess Some sort of royalty? Who the hell are you To sit in judgment over me? You talk like you’ve got power Of God’s Eternity. But you do not control me Or anything I do Don’t worry about me You worry about you. When your finger points at me Three point back at you In the mirror of this vision The reflection Is what’s true. You preach a double standard And I know the reason why You imagine your self greatness And pronounce yourself on High. You paint a different picture That is just a lie. To hear you tell your story You’d sit next to The Throne You act like God Almighty But you’re just flesh and bone. As you look at that reflection You will finally see The person in the mirror Is certainly not me. I will never understand Why you cannot see The reflection of yourself When you point at me. So take a cleansing breath Open up your eyes And see with clarity, That you aren’t any better, Aren’t any better than me
God is with Us Bo Jack Russo on Nov 27, 2008 I wrote this about a year ago. For more like this CLICK HERE! Sense of God around us.
Where is God? What, are you kidding me? Where is God Just take a look around God is up above God is on the ground God is in the air And everywhere we see God is inside you And God is inside me It was He that poured the water And He that made the tree God is uncontested For all Eternity God is in the birds God is in the bees God is in the giant mountain That everybody sees God’s Face is in the clouds We see high above Was God that gave us life And God that gives us love He’s The Man upstairs The one who had the plan He built his house upon the rock And not upon the sand God gave us the light And God keeps us from harm Jesus sits beside Him With hand on His right arm God will always be here Will never go away Walking right beside us Each and every day It is God who is the captain The Captain of the ship Navigating you at home Or when you’re on a trip Almighty God in Heaven Sits upon His throne But is also right beside us We are not alone It was God who made the night And God that made the day His ear is always open All we have to do is pray
It's finally here folks, playoff time! The New York Jets take on the Cincinnati Bengals at 4:30 Eastern time, 1:30 Pacific time. Look for the Bengals to come back strong but in the end I think The J.E. T. S. Jets Jets Jets come out on top, but this could go either way.
In the late game the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys in Jerry Jones' new gazillion dollar stadium. Call me crazy but as much as I love Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook and the freak DeShaun Jackson, I think Tony Romo my finally get the monkey off his back and win a big playoff game.

The Jagged Edges of Bojacks Twisted Mind Bo Jack Russo on Jan 26, 2009
Just a little history lesson about my life and the pleasure of reading and gaining knowledge.
I am full of useless information. As I’ve shared before, my childhood was not the best, but there were moments of bliss, but you’ll be surprised at where I got the most enjoyment. In 1973, we moved from San Diego to a nearby little town called La Mesa. Now we were a religious practicing Catholic family. We all went to the same school, but my parents got divorced and my life became a living hell. But I discovered an escape. Now education was different at that time, something’s better, some things worse. I don’t really know how to say this without sounding a little arrogant, so I’m just going to throw it out there. Every one in my family was pretty smart. When I went to public school, I was easily 3 grades further along than the other second graders.
More on that in a moment. I want to share this part before going any further. When we moved into the house, the other family was still moving the last few things out, but they had a few things left in the garage. They asked my dad if they could keep it there for a little while. Well, dad being dad, he struck up a nice little bargain, He said no problem, but in exchange, they had to leave a set of encyclopedias behind. The other guy laughed and was cool with it. These would become my best friends and advocates.
Now, back to the school thing, we got weekly scholastic books to read, and I was just zipping through them, we had a chart on the wall with stars for each book read. I wasn’t trying to show off, I was just reading faster than the other kids.
Within a couple of weeks, I was 1 on the list, so the teacher gave me a couple of books that were at a supposed higher level of comprehension, for older students, and she set me apart from the other children like I was bad or something. I was sent to the principals office because the girl who I had overtaken for the most books read threw a book at me, so in return, I spit in her hair. Hey, we were kids.
So the next day the teacher said here, read this, and handed me a dictionary. I gladly started reading it and was hooked. She hated me, I don’t know why, but I thought that was the coolest book in the world. While not exactly the collegiate level, it was great fun for me. So I asked mom if we had one. She told me to go to the bookcase and look. So there it was, the Webster’s colligate version dictionary.
I was reading and learning all kinds of great words and the kids at school started asking if I learned any good words the day before, and I was always willing to share my newfound knowledge.
Well one day I asked mom what an encyclopedia was.
This is the coolest thing my mother ever did for me. She said,” I know you are the smartest in your class and I know you’ve been reading the dictionary, Just grab one and start reading.
The mind of the little Bo Jack was off and running. I absolutely loved to read, and the encyclopedias were fascinating. I would read cover to cover, sometimes for hours on end.
I learned about the constitution, about presidents and their lives, I was reading about volcanoes and outer space and people and places.
I loved those books. Now keep in mind, This was the Collier’s Encyclopedia 1968 version, so I didn’t know about man on the moon and stuff like that, but this was how I found out about Vietnam, and I started watching the news, and Walter Cronkite’s daily Vietnam reports.
I was a very very shy boy, but my teachers liked to ask what I read about the day before. In junior high, I was having political discussions with my teachers.
My mom had to buy me a watch because when I discovered the public library, I would just sit there and read for hours and lose track of time.
Sadly the home life was getting worse and worse and worse, so I stayed away as long as I could, but would get even more beatings if I was at home. I chose the books over that torture whenever I could.
Another book I read a lot was the good book, The Bible. It was a comfort to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no saint, but I loved the psalms and proverbs.
Another book I loved to death was called “The Way Things Work”, it was a fascinating book where I learned about the inner working of the internal combustion engine, How a carburetor and electricity worked, What makes a vacuum work and things like that.
Here’s the problem…. I don’t drink beer anymore, but over the years, I drank an oceans worth of it, and some of the memories have slipped away into evanescence. But on occasion, Something will jog my mind and I’ll remember something like George Washington’s shoe size or that Davey Crocket had political ambitions in Tennessee, or the fact that the blue whale is the largest creature in the water or the eruption in ancient Pompeii or the legends of the Greek Gods.
Just for fun, I’ll add another tidbit, twice I was entered in the national spelling bee, but got so nervous in front of everybody on the stage, I mumbled the spelling and was knocked out in the first round.
No wasn’t that a fun story?
Don’t be surprised with anything the Bo Jackster says..All the useless information and I never learned anything about computers. Often, an annoying habit of mine that I can’t help is I have to correct people with inaccurate information. I just can’t help it. I know people hate it, but I can’t stop doing it. I never learned to type either, that’s why I can’t read as much as I’d like, because it takes me a long time to produce a story.
If anyone read this story to the end, you have more patience than I do. I still have one of those 6 inch thick versions of Webster’s Dictionary, and I have almost forgotten punctuation, that’s why I do everything in the word processor.
Remember folks, up until two months and a few days ago, all I knew how to do on a computer was send and read emails and read the news and Google stuff.
NEW YORK (AP)—Andre Dawson was elected to Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame in his ninth try, while Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar fell just short of the honor on Wednesday.
Dawson received 420 of 539 votes in voting announced by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, 15 more than the 75 percent necessary to gain election. The eight-time All-Star outfielder had fallen 44 votes short last year.
“It was well worth the wait. I can’t really describe the elation,” Dawson said during a telephone conference call. “If you’re a Hall of Famer, eventually you’re going to get in, no matter how long it takes.” To read entire story at Yahoo Sports CLICK HERE!
