Don't let us be thrown to the lions.

All I seem to read on a variety of blogs lately is a lot of controversy regarding ASAN.

Well I will remind everybody of what it says in the book of Daniel. Yes I know this is a rather fundementalist thing to be doing, but you see my religion does tend to give me that perspective of absolute right and wrong. Call it black and white thinking if you like but sometimes we really do need to realise what side we are on.

Mene, Tekel, Upharsin are the famous words written on the wall, and whichever interpretation you put upon it, it is usually considered to mean weighed in the balance and found wanting. These are the prophetic words given to Babylonian King Belshazzar before the Babylonian Empire was divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

Well divide and rule is an old concept that is for sure, and if we do not stand together on certain matters we will be picked off one by one. In fact I sense that happening already.

We do not want to be associated with Babylon. Babylon, stands literally for a historical empire in the book of Daniel, but in the book of Revelation it stands for evil generally, the evil of a corrupt regime, represented by Belshazzars Babylon. Click on the link for Babylon and you will see how our opponents consider us as weighed in the balance and wanting, how they consider us less than human.

If we allow all this dispute to stand in the way of Ari Neeman taking up his position on the US National Council for Disability, what does this really mean?

I fear that it means that those who are really stirring up dissent in the political circles that matter will get their way and secure an alternative who wants to see an end to our tribe one way or another. Can you end autism without ending autistic people?

Let us be sure when the walls of Babylon fall, that we are on the right side of them and are not crushed as collateral damage.

I'm with you buddy. We need to keep our eyes on the prize, and not be falling, one by one, by internecine warfare.

Another famous saying should be remembered - klaatu barada nikto.

It means this dispute will have done the USA which you are not a citizen of and have never paid any taxes in a world of good but not having him on the NDC.

curing autism would not end autistic people, it would just mean that thousands of children would not grow up having to spend most of their lives as cripples as I have.

I don't expect you to publish this, but I am writing it to you just the same.

Uh, what have you guys been talking about? I really have no clue what is going on and I am as usual, very confused.

Would anybody like to join my new club? It's called Neurodiversity 2.0

There's a psychiatric examination before you're admitted.

If you're bat shit crazy you don't get in.

There's also a swearing exam - you need >70% to pass.

The practical involves demonstrating you can cope sensory overload by self-medicating with dagga and whisky.

Girls with wide staring eyes and knife collections are particularly welcome.

Mitchell keeps crying that he's crippled, but it's obvious he doesn't know what it means. He's just screwed up in his head, and yes, his mama did it to him. The damage she caused is separate and distinct from autism.
