Staying home. Watching football. Not dressing up this year. No parties. No candy. But possibly a seance....

What are we doing for Halloween?
Watching Thriller, of course!

Happy Halloween Larry!
You're a good player, dear!

By the way, happy Halloween to you too, Lori JFM!

What is truly scary?

Besides the fact that someone hasn't tied Dick Cheney to the back bumper of their 4×4 and given him a hay ride, I'd say the brainwashed followers of Islam and some of the Christian Sects that have child brides and seem to encourage pedophilia are truly scary.

Ayatollahs, Clerics and Mullahs convincing there followers that the Creator actually rewards some sick individual that straps bombs to their chest and blows up a bus full of youngsters is truly scary.

Living in a Islamic Ruled country would be truly scary.

A woman born and living in any Islamic Ruled country would experience horrors and scary experiences that women in the West could not imagine.

About 35 years ago, I traveled to a small farming community in Canada to stay with a couple of friends at the family home of one of them. This farmhouse was now unused with the exception of family gatherings but it had been in the family for generations. Including the "laying out' of the deceased. I came prepared for the paranormal, includinga book I was reading at the time, "Etruscan Remedies and Occult Mysteries"
The place was as if out of a story book. replete with the old furniture, isinglass pot bellied stove (for heat) outhouse and a portrait of Queen Victoria that had been there since she reigned
That night as we prepared for bed, D (the member of the family) took a bedroom downstairs, G took one of rhe upstairs rooms and I took the other. The light over the outhouse shone through my window with an eerie chartreuse color. During the night I was awakened by a knocking at the window. Naturally it was merely a tree branch but I couldn't calm myself down enough to go back to sleep.
I called to G and then crawled into bed with him. I was again awakened by rhe sound of dresser drawe handles rattling. I called out "D, is that you?" and woke up G. He said no, it's noy D, you can hear him snoring downstairs.
I listened and sure enough I could hear D...but there, as I looked around the room, was a shrouded figure,slightly bent over an open dresser drawer, lifted something out of the drawer, turned around and walked through the wall.
Amazingly, although open mouthed in astonishment, I wasn't scared. The next morning, D told us a walled over attic was in that spot We figured that since G and I were the first non family members to stsy there that it made the spirit unhappy.

I once lived alone in a rented house in Vancouver, WA that had a ghost also living there. Cupboard doors would be left open at night after I had gone to bed or when I had been gone, One time after I had purchased a bunch of bananas, a banana peel was left on the kitchen counter. The banana peel was not there when I went to bed.

Another time, when I was in bed something or someone sat down on the edge of the bed. I could not see or feel anyone, but I know someone was sitting there. My dog, who was lying on the floor beside the bed, started softly growling, and whoever was sitting on the bed got up and left.

One other time, there was an electric alarm clock sitting on the night stand beside the bed in the second bedroom, and the alarm went off. I went into the bedroom, shut the alarm off and went back to bed. Pretty soon, the alarm went off again, so I unplugged the clock and went back to my bedroom. A little bit later the alarm went off again and when I went into the bedroom it was still unplugged.

I finally took the clock out to the attached garage, and left it there. The alarm never went off again as far as I know, and I never brought it back into the house either.

The last time was when I saw a young girl walking down the hallway towards the bedrooms, but when I went to check the bedrooms, there was no one in either bedroom.

The strange part about all this is that I never felt any fear when all of this was going on. I later moved out of the house.

Dear Larry :-)
Of course , I believe in ghosts.
In Mexico celebrate "Dia de Muertos" (november 2).
But, my friends and me are going to have a Great Halloween Party.

Of course, we'll dance: THRILLER!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL!!

Take care!!


Katrina,Ohio   October 31st, 2009 8:21 pm ET

Hi Larry HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you. My family and I are staying at home tonight. My son has a friend spending the night and their watching dvd's. We are definately keeping our black kitten inside tonight. I do believe in ghosts, because when I was 5 years old I seen the ghost of my Uncle after he passed away, walking down the dark hallway towards me. So I am a definite believer! I am scared of mostly everything. So how are you spending your HALLOWEEN?!


Daniel Bernabe   November 1st, 2009 12:15 am ET

I dont believe in gost because the Bible says the dead have no power on you since you beleive in JesusChrist as your personnal saviour


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   November 1st, 2009 4:12 am ET

Ghosts are for real though. They are the fallen angels from heaven who rebelled against God. They wanted to be like God. Another name for them is DEMONS or EVIL SPIRITS. These demons even tremble at the mention of JESUS's name. They know that Jesus has the ultimate power over them.

They come in all disguises and can even appear as ANGELS OF LIGHT (good angels).


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   November 1st, 2009 4:17 am ET

Halloween is a practice that honours the dead and is detestable to God.

The dead know nothing. They will be brought back to life at the RESURRECTION and JUDGEMENT.

Staying home. Watching football. Not dressing up this year. No parties. No candy. But possibly a seance....

-----------------------–

Please don't delve in seances. This is of the OCCULT and can invite evil spirits (DEMONS – fallen angels). Same with the ouija board. A dangerous practice.


Hallowen   November 1st, 2009 3:06 pm ET

Why is Halloween celebrated?
Is it signifies a happy event or a sad event?
Thanks for letting me know


Joe G. (Illinois)   November 1st, 2009 4:59 pm ET

What to say about Hallowing.. It just goes to show that Happiness, fun and joy doesn’t necessarily translate into a good thing all the time “Or most of the time.” Parents ought to protect their children.. Instead they feed them.. Oh why bother.. Americans!!!


Bob Braun   November 1st, 2009 10:37 pm ET

Larry

Social Security in not Socialism...we pay several fold for what we pay in our life time in taxes to support this system and never get back what we pay...the rest is used to suppor the other govt spending programs. Teachers and govt workers have their on govt pensions not subjeect this robbery.

Dear Larry King–You are curious about why several California high school students so brutally raped a young woman. One reason might be the influence of hard core pornography. Have you ever seen one of the hard core pornographic movies available on cable or dish television? Try a Hustler movie called “Sex Education.” Doubtless, there are many similar movies. It is my understanding that the internet has many offerings. Why not have one of the CNN staff members research the subject. My guess is that you would find a number of examples of gang rape, or, at least, young men having the most graphic intercourse with young women, some of whom would be bound with ropes or manacled. All of this material is readily available to young people, and could easily affect their attitudes regarding sex, and what is permissible in the treatment of women.–Sincerely, Bradford Lyttle

Yes, would agree with this. That is why I am getting quite disillusioned with the internet. The scary thing is it is just all so easily accessible. It is all out there – no holds barred. It has become likened to a cesspit. This world is going to rack and ruin I'm afraid. Morality has just gone out the window. Quite disgusting really the levels society is stooping to.

Another cause could be the influence of the hardcore gangster rap music and gangster culture.


Rose   November 2nd, 2009 2:14 pm ET

To A. Smith in Oregon: You wrote: "A woman born and living in any Islamic ruled country would experience horrors and scary experiences that women in the West could not imagine".

That may be true in a number of circumstances however, 4 out of 5 most populous Muslim-majority countries have had women as political leaders:

– Indonesia: Megawati Sukarnoputri as President.
– Pakistan: Benazir Bhutto (2 terms) as Prime Minister
– Bangladesh: Khaleda Zia and Sheikha Hasina as Prime Ministers.
– Turkey: Tansu Ciller as Prime Minister.

No female leader in US history. We have goofs like Palin to contend with. Now that's really scary!


Honorine   November 2nd, 2009 3:04 pm ET

Happy halloween to u(LKL BLOG) too.


Dodie ~ California   November 2nd, 2009 9:05 pm ET

@ Rose

lol

I agere with all that you said;.... however, We certainly see eye to eye regarding Palin. I could not have expressed it any better than you did! Palin for anything is scary; but, Palin for president is really a scary thought... It ranks right up there with The great white shark! !


Dodie ~ California   November 2nd, 2009 9:07 pm ET

@ Jessie from Auckland, NZ

Rape is an act of violence. Yes it is done in a kind of sexual manner; however, it is done due to the person's rage towards women!


Rose   November 3rd, 2009 10:53 am ET

Dodie: I really found Palin's potential proximatey to the White House in the last election to be frighteningly scary. Now that's old news, but she continues to haunt and taunt us with a possible comeback of some sort. Please, my faint heart can't take it! Her Alaskan anti-witch doctor cast her demons out and they are approaching the lower 48's at full speed! Eeekkk!


ckelly   November 3rd, 2009 3:46 pm ET

Hi Dodie,

Yes rape is rage DIRECTED at women. Its also about an attitude towards women that says "you are not human" "you are powerless" "I am entitled" and "sex=violence" (that behavior is learned.)

Where do they learn this?

Domestic violence and children who witness violence against women is at an all time high-the leading cause of death in women and girls under 30 is murder. Every day little girls (and boys) and teenage girls are reported murdered and abducted on the news- but our society does virtually nothing to stop it. Why do they tell us about it?

Women still make only .77 of a man's earning dollar.

Women are depicted visually as "bodies" on rock/rap videos, catwalks and on the cover's of both womens and men's magazines.

The sexualized images of women and girls sells everything from dolls to Depends undergarments..

The rap, rock and dance music industry both celebrate and demean images of sexual women simultaneously. While the lyrics played are so demeaning.

Religious groups exploit women through patriarchial authority and rules that apply to women but not to men (fundamentalist religions in particular ie Christianity and Islam. The Catholic church will not allow women a place of power designated through religious dogma to men.

Women are not well represented in places of authority such as the top of corporations, medical boards, finance and politics..

Its considered "fair game" to make sexual remarks about candidates running for president or vice-president (even if we don't agree with their politics) while racist comments against a man is considered the ultimate outrage.

Women are blamed for the domestic violence and rapes they endure through the legal system. ie "he said versus she said".

Football players, celebrities, musicians, late night talk show hosts get away with rape, murder and sexually charged behavior and their fans "are happy" when they are vindicated by their high price lawyers-there is a common theme of blaming the woman.

The multi-billion dollar on-line porn industry that has gone viral since the inception of the world wide webb. Pornography has changed greatly in the last 30 years.

"mail-order brides"; blow-up dolls and female robotics go along way to dehumanize the female as a mindless, useless, sexual beings-designed purely for a man's pleasure....

women are expected to bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan while worrying if they meet the sexual prototype...while men are "expected" to do less. In the case of many books popular today, men should be expected to stray and have affairs, especially if the woman "doesn't get herself together", "quit nagging" and "do it for him"...entitlement, entitlement..

Single mothers who have no support from the men who impregnated them and abandoned them-no respect.

Poverty

I could go on...Rape IS about violence but its the attitude of male entitlement and that women are not human, not valued, not powerful, and are purely for a man's sexual gratification -first and foremost- that teaches young men that rape is OK.
