A Tedious Hell

Never mind, Rob Bell, I hope there’s a Tedious Hell for jerks who send notes like the one I rec’d in my inbox Monday:
I hope my e-mail find you well.I need your assistance. My name is Sgt Joey
Jones, I am an American soldier with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment in
IRAQ for the United States,we have $25,000,000.00, that is in our Possession
and we are ready to move it out of the country.The Money is part of the one
we seized from late Saddam Hussein, but was not declared.My colleague and I
need a good partner someone we can trust to actualize this Venture,but we
are moving it through Diplomatic way to your housedirectly. Your share is
40%while 60% is for me and my colleague.

Sincerely,Sgt Joey Jones.

What I can’t figure out is who has time to sit around thinking up this stuff? And if you can make money this way, then by golly, I am for sure in the wrong business.

And can we get a Revolving Hell for those greedy freaks who charged soldiers (ie: taxpayers) for extra baggage:


Which might explain how come Delta leads in this.

And in case you missed this one sometime back, here’s a look at the way our insurance companies pay their respects to our nation’s military families.

What would be the appropriate hell for them?

  • Good night! That makes a gal wanna open her big can of Whoop, aye?

    Indeed, God bless America. And its soldier.

    Ohhhh, come on Karen. Where is your spirit for what is truly American … excess profits. Capitalism at its finest – prestige, power, and possession. The issue isn’t with Delta. These poor guys just didn’t realize for whom and what they were fighting.

    Welcome home boys, you know that we love ya! Business is good. Wall Street is humming. The banks are recapitalized, “The Donald” has got your back, and Gaga is sure to tell you that you are just alright … all, of course, for a little something, something.

    But then, contrary to much of the commentary from the little monsters, maybe Jesus wasn’t just about mindless acceptance and sweet empty platitudes. Maybe Jesus did have something to say about those who exploited the life of the other for their own comfort and gain … “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. It is these you ought to have practiced without neglecting the others. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel!”

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may become clean.”

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth. So you also on the outside look righteous to others, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous, and you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ Thus you testify against yourselves that you are descendants of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your ancestors. You snakes, you brood of vipers! How can you escape being sentenced to hell?” Matthew 23:23-33
