I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund!

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Extra! Extra!

Read all about it! Some of the days news-

1)In today's New York Times (F 7-25-14), on p. A10:
The 85 richest people in the world have as much money as the bottom 3.5 Billion!
12% of humanity (842 Million) suffer from chronic hunger

1.while 30% of humanity -almost a third- are overweight.
2.and, in america, almost 40% ($165 Billion/year) of food goes uneaten/to waste.
3.in the world, about a quarter -24%- of the annual 4 billion tons of food (6 quadrillion calories) produced goes wasted or lost.

This is mind-blowing, in my opinion.

2)In the Berkeley Tri-City Post (weekly edition, July 16-22, 2014):
Capitol Punishment was ruled unconstitutional by California's state supreme court in 1976, but was reinstated by the legislature the following year.  Since then, 13 inmates have been executed here, most recently Clarence Ray Allen in 2006.  An analysis by the Los Angeles Times found that

California spent $308 Million on each execution.

The article, taken from the Huffington Post, is about the good news, in my view, that a Federal Judge has ruled California's death penalty unconstitutional.  He struck it down because the system is arbitrary and in violation of the Constitution's 8th Amendment.

aside (from wikipedia)
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in 2011, world military expenditure for the world amounted to 1.735 trillion US$.[1]
