The Enigmatically Idiotic Idiosyncrasies


Of Not Doing That Which Is Work


Upon Shabbat (The 7th Day Jewish Sabbath)

The Torah (Law) of Moses,

does clearly and implicitly Command:

One is not to do that which is work

upon any given Shabbat (Sabbath Day)1,


And so, in fervent desire to obey

-- and diligently keep the Sabbath --

many sincere people go to extremes,

extremes of endeavoring to be holy.


Thus embracing self-enslavement

to the enigmatically idiotic idiosyncrasies

of not doing that which is work

on Shabbat (The 7th Day Jewish Sabbath).


For, strangely, it is considered as work

-- and, therefore, wrong --

to answer one's phone on the Sabbath,

wrong to do so many trivial things.

(turn light switches on and off, etc.)

that it is almost like a song,

a song of building an overly protective wall

around the basic simplicity that is the Torah

as to that which is right and which is wrong

to do on the Jewish Sabbath Day.

And yet, the reality of necessity

does dictate a rather unclean fact:

One does wipe one's a*s on Shabbat,

for taking a dump is duly permitted,

though some tear toilet paper sheets

in wisdom's ingenious preparation

for said daily dump's sordid leavings,

but do fail to consider it a bit of work,

to squeeze out a Sabbath Day's t**d.


Thus, if so many trivial daily tasks of life,

are zealously defined and considered as work,

is it not also work

to turn the daily prayer pages

of one's Tanahk,

or one's Sidur (Jewish Prayer Book)

on the Sabbath Day?


Thus embracing self-enslavement

to the enigmatically idiotic idiosyncrasies

of not doing that which is work

on Shabbat (The 7th Day Jewish Sabbath.


If one wishes to keep the Torah,

what is needed is a, heaping helping,

filled to overflowing, plate of balance,

duly seasoned with sound reasoning.


As for me, I am not an advocate,

nor a supporter of any variety

of Organized Religion:

I.E.: Judaism, Islam, or Christianity,

which are a form of Organized Crime2.


Be it known3: I refuse to embrace the Trinity's Doctrine

of Taxes, Tithes, & Lies sold as a fool's fodder

by the Elite's orchestration of a Uniting of Nations

thus, giving birth to the Ghastly Goons of Globalism4

working in complicity with Religion's Leaders,

who are no more than bleeders and breeders

of bold faced, fabricated, fairy-tale, mythological lies

created by mere men who do ever so boldly

seek to render all Humanity as mental slaves

and as but Sheeple-People5 Cattle,

for who was the Wizard of Oz6 (strength),

but a man -- and NO God …!

5 Sheeple-People Cattle — Sheeple-People — A word and term which I have expanded upon and find myself favoring in my attempt to communicate the all too factual reality that people tend to allow themselves—even seem to want—to be led, watered, and fed, much like sheep, trusting others with decisions and truths regarding their lives, their futures, their welfare, and their safety, rather then shouldering up such responsibilities themselves as individuals, in finding and enjoying the comfort of numbers. The word sheeple was first coined by actress and Wall Street Journal writer, Barbara Anderson, in 1984.

I don't think God would agree with organized religions who take religion to extreme. And some surely do make organized religion seem like Organized Crime.
