Take Cover Vol. 1. - Redemption Song


  • Sometimes a song just chills me to the bone. I have always been a big fan of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song", a beautiful song with some of the strongest lyrics around. It's a perfect song in lots of ways. So when I heard that Johnny Cash was making a cover of Marleys masterpiece I was actually a bit nervous. I love Cash, but I was affraid he was making a fool of himself doing this song. Man, was I relieved when I heard it the first time. And when Joe Strummer from The Clash joined him, I was crying tears of joy.
  • This version is a respectful hommage to Bob Marley, and still manage to have it's own soul. There's no point trying to find out which song is best. It's irrelavant. "Redemption Song" suits Cash and Strummer perfect. I really believe the lyric when Johnny and Joe deliever it. One of the best songs around, the sad part thou, is that Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash and Bob Marley is not among us anymore, but the good thing is that their music still lives on!

Men are the ones who create evil on Earth. It is the choices they make which enslave their souls to hell. This is the test.

As we approach the Apocalypse the gods are removing "wrath of god" material from xtian dogma.
As we see wickedness spread throughout the country, like homosexuality, godlessness etc, using cable TV and the spread of "Californication" as justification, they changed xtianity, appropriatly with Catholicism first.
xtianity has changed radically in the 20th century, and everyone should be mindful of the way it was, because the people are in a process of slipping out of god's favor into a state of Damnation, from which the vast majority will never survive.

Using evil to prey upon evil.
I realize the horrific days of people planning monsterous acts like the Holocaust are behind us. But that doesn't mean still are not scams in the economy besides The Skim, which the gods view as necessary for positioning's sake.
Just as clone hosting selected disfavored whom the gods wanted to ensure had no chance to ascend before The End, so did being invited into the 21st century real estate scam ensure as of yet undetermined punishment elements.
They instructed people whom they wanted to condition about when the stock market would top out and told them when they should shift their asset base into real estate instead. The changed the banking rules in Congress which allowed for sub-prime loans which led to the government bailout of 2009.
And they told them when to sell before they tanked the real estate market as well, timing all based on the level of confidence they wanted each to understand.
The victims may cry "Why would this happen to me." but their behavior in a prior life would answer this:::It didin't happen to anyone who didn't deserve it. IRONICALLY, SOME WHO ENTERED CLONE HOSTING AND PLANNED THIS ECONOMIC EVENT BEFORE THEY LEFT WERE REINCARNATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS EVENT.

Both the public and the private sector host $400k overpaid employees. The difference?
The public sector preys upon the disfavored rejects from motherlands, people too disfavored to stay reproducing with their own blood. Corporate preyed upon the more favored purebloods from their motherland through sourcing and therefore incurr more evil in the eyes of the gods, for their lives have more value. Yet another great example of the god's "reverse positioning".

Employment charity:::Was W able to do his job as President?
I suspect there are many frat-boy types who couldn't or wouldn't study nor do the work necessary so they gained this "benefit" telepathically. This could have been extended to their professional life as well::In most of these cases they don't have what it takes to do their jobs.
I think employment charity is FAR more common than people may believe.
Another example how they tempted people in this manner is the procurement of sexual relations.
Consistant with The Matrix, the Gods positioned both to these people which gained their confidence. But what they don't know is this behavior actually hurts them::They were offered temptation and they fell for it. And one day, if they are to have a future, they will be punished.
Keep raping these poor girls. You're going to end up as one in your next life.
