Atheism Has One Cost

The one cost of choosing to be an Atheist is, you have to give up your soul. And that usually happens gradually, as it did for me. From what I have read, this is typical. It slips away with little wisps of “faith”.

It’s a liberating feeling to lose all belief in a god. I know that for all my good and evil deeds, I have no chance for redemption, or consequence, in any afterlife. I will just end, like a good song. It will be up to people to remember me.

I know the devout will think I carry a lost soul, but in reality, that is already gone, always was. They think I will burn in hell, but there is no hell, just as there is no god or heaven.

How did I get here, to this place? A place that freaks out believers, but gives me strength they will never understand…

1972, at the age of 8, I was shuffled out of my home country, the US, 50 miles into Canada. A place my father frequented when he was young. All of the kids in my family were removed from a public school in western Detroit, to a Catholic school in Kingsville Ontario.

In Canada, I was actually an altar Boy, for three years. It was a good experience; I learned to not freak out in front of a crowd and to concentrate on the ceremony. We actually had fun, the priest was very cool.

We got to year four in Canada and one of us kids got disciplined on the first day of school. Mom appeared and pulled us all out, to go across town to the Public School. I liked the new school better, because the kids weren’t beaten or humiliated. Other kids were friendly and welcoming.

The next year, we moved back to Detroit, but no Churchin’ happened. I think my Dad went sometimes, but the rest of us kids dropped out. As far as I know, only one of five even attends occasionally.

As I grew up, I learned about all of the religions, on my own. Catholics were the most violent one, historically (wisp). Then the Ireland fiasco happened and I was sickened by Christianity in general (wisp). Then the stories of pedophile priests started (and have never ended) popping up (wisp). Then the cover-ups by the Bishops (wisp). The LRA and their insanity in Africa (wisp).

I got older and saw how religion perverted US Politics. I learned of how Thomas Jefferson penned; “"wall of separation between church and state" and the continual push to erode that separation. The branch dividian thing happened in Texas (wisp).

Religion = God = Murder or Rape = Evil. I think the only religion I have any respect for is Buddhism.

The deeds of man drove god out of my life. I can’t name the number of times I thought to myself, “This world is insane, good is dying. And god isn’t doing anything about it. God is making it worse.” Eventually, there was no god. And if you ask me who created the universe? I will answer, “Since you think everything needs a creator, then who created god? If you can’t answer that, I can. Man created god, not the other way around.”

No Vote On Creating American Jobs and Ending Offshoring Act

The following are the non-republicans that agreed not to to even have a vote on this: Hagan (D-NC),Lieberman (ID-CT), Lincoln (D-AR),Nelson (D-NE),Warner (D-VA)and Tester (D-MT)

http://senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=2&vote=00242

Of course all republicans want to keep the economy in the trash, and keep big American business shipping jobs over seas.

Woman Beats Off Bear With Zucchini

Wait, that title didn't come off right. Oh crap, that came out all all over the place. OH Crap!

Ok, starting over...A lady in Montana on her porch, had a zucchini (sounds like the opening to a Porn story?) and her dog was there (sounds worse...).

A Burly Bear shows up hungry. Should he eat the woman or some dog? The Bear is gay (not that there is anything wrong with that), so tries to eat some dog. The woman is probably jealous, so hits the bear with a Zucchini (and just what was she doing with it?? I saw a movie once...).

Now the Burly Bear is mad and bites the woman. She has more Zucchini, so she hits it again (how many does she really need on a Wednesday night??).

Burly Bear runs away, and all of his friends start calling him Girly Bear, but since he's gay (not that there is anything wrong with that), he is ok with the new name.

Don't Tell, Don't Ask

So DADT was upheld today, and as a person who served in the US military on Submarines, I can go along with waiting to hear what the current enlisted have to say. That will come in December, and I can only hope it's a better outlook when I served from 81-87. The persecution back then was near brutal..

Frankly, it shouldn't be an issue. If an American wants to protect our country, they should be allowed to do so if they are physically able to do the job.

MS Word Advanced Mail Merge

Ok, creating a Mail Merge in Word is a pain in the butt, no doubt. For one thing, you can’t pull from multiple sources (like I tried to do with MS Access with multiple tables). If you are in the MS Access situation, create a Report with the fields you want and then use Office Links to open/save the data as an Excel file. <–HINT!

Then follow the Word Help instructions for the basic Mail Merge. All will be right with the world.

I found this site that has a lot of good content, and after you get all of that,and things are still not working the way you want them to, come back here and keep reading.

Below are text samples of complete merge fields in a Word document. You can not copy and paste this into Word, it will not work. Every {} you see must be inserted in a Mail Merge, or using CTRL-F9. See link above.

Getting fields of data to simply Add was one of the most difficult and least documented things I needed to do..

{ =({ IF {MERGEFIELD “UD1 } “” “{ MERGEFIELD “SM_CD” }+” “0+”}{ IF { MERGEFIELD UD2} “” “{ MERGEFIELD “QM_CD”}+” “0+ }{ IF { MERGEFIELD “UD3” } “” “{MERGEFIELD “SAS_CD” }” “0” }) \# “0” } results in “=(0+4+3+2)\# “0””.

Since UD1 and SM_CD are NULL, a “0+” is inserted (you will get errors if you don't do this, because NULL + 3 is not valid). If they were not NULL, the value of SM_CD would be inserted. “4+” is then inserted because QM_CD equals 4 and UD2 is not NULL. And so on with the last two numbers. The KEY here is the () locations and the \# “0″, because they result in a formula that Word understands and executes!

This is a real good example of the format you want to add data fields in your Merge. TIP: You can insert all of the required merge fields at the top of a document, then copy/paste them inside { } that you insert with CTRL-F9. Then add the IF and \# stuff.

{ =(B22*F22) \# “$#,##0.00;($#,##0.00)”} result in something like “$125.00”. This is an example of math within a Word table, by actually referencing the existing cells, just as you would in Excel. A1 is the top left cell in your table, B1 would be the field to the right of it. Open a blank Excel sheet if you are confused.

Some date formatting after you insert a field;

{ MERGEFIELD SHIP_DATE \@ “MM/d/yy”} results in “9/6/10”

{ MERGEFIELD SHIP_DATE \@ “d MMMM yyyy” } results in “6 September 2010”

Refer to the link above for more (a Table is located at the bottom of that page).

This one, was an interesting problem. I had to create a list of sentences based on data being present or not.

{ IF{MERGEFIELD UD1NO } “” “ Site Maintained Update”{ MERGEFIELD UD1NO }, { MERGEFIELD TYPE }, { IF { MERGEFIELD QUARTER } “” “Quarter “ } {MERGEFIELD QUARTER } PP
“ }{ IF{ MERGEFIELD JC_CD } “” { IF { MERGEFIELD UD1 “” “ Job Control Media, Quarter {MERGEFIELD QUARTER } PP
“ }}{IF { MERGEFIELD UD2NO } “” “ Quarterly Update #{ MERGEFIELD UD2NO } PP
“ }

Result:
“ Site Maintained Update 14, Quarter 4” only if UD1NO is not NULL
“ Job Control Media, Quarter 4” only if JC_CD and UD1 are not NULL, using a nested IF
“ Quarterly Update #15” only if UD2NO is not NULL

Note the PP is where I inserted a carriage return (Paragraph mark by hitting Enter. The PP did not appear in the actual mail merge document). This forces each sentence to appear on its own line. Creative formatting...

Drop a comment if this isn't working for you and I will try to help out if I can. Include an email address, duh..

Fucking learn to swim if you don't know how. If you don't want to learn, stay away from the water. Thinning of the herd.
