The Great Diversity in the Democrat Presidential Field

The Great Diversity in the Democrat Presidential Field

August 4, 2015

When we talk (are told about) the great diversity in the democratic party we can all agree that the bottom end of the American voter votes democrat. And as one ascends the socio-economic ladder – say from welfare recipient to low wage worker – he or she tends to begin considering a less progressive approach to the economy, the American culture and way of life, the flood of foreign people across our borders and resulting loss of jobs to Americans and lower pay for those who are able to find work, the loss of respect on the inter national playing field, and on and on…Some gravitate to the independents  or – ew – the republicans.

So to see the vast and wonderful diversity presented and displayed to the American voter for his or her perusal by the democrat party, the hopeful leader of those who vote democrat. Why, do I see a woman amongst the contenders? Why, yes by George! It’s Hillary….HILLARY CLINTON! My gawd, to think that we have a woman presidential candidate on the world stage. We are so diverse!

Why is that a man? That candidate? Why, yes it is. That’s Joe. Joe Bidden. “Hey. Yo.  Uncle Joe! How’s it hang in man??? “

Talk about diversity…The democrat race fields a man and a woman. Well, I know that’s only two sexes out of all of them. But, come on. And I realize they are both white. But at least their genders are different.

Oh, wait. Wait a minute. Why, it’s Bernie Sanders! Again. More diversity. Do you realize that all three candidates are from different northeastern states? I am so proud of our diverse field for 2016.

LETS HEAR IT EVERYONE….

WHAT DO WE WANT?

DIVER’SITY!!!

WHEN DO WE WANT IT?

TWENTY-SIXTEEN… YEEEAAAAAAA

And the republican party is so snobby and they’re mostly old white men. I mean look at their presidential field. Give me a break. Diversity my ass.

Sure, they got a woman, an indian, a cuban, a black guy, a baptist preacher, a mexican or something, a canadian or something a couple catholics I think. Maybe a polock or something.

But, just because they’re different does not mean they’re diverse. I bet not even one voted for Obama. Diverse. Phewww. Yeah, right.

Oh yeah, and our party? All three of our candidates are real politicians. They’ve been politicians all their lives. And that’s a long time. They REALLY know politics. As a matter of fact, they have devoted so much of their adult life to politics that they haven’t had to learn anything else. Instead of working they became politicians. I mean, they REALLY know politics.

But the republicans? Come on. They have a real estate guy with hair who is worth about 9 or 10 billion dollars. Big deal. They have a pediatric neurosurgeon. He’s the black guy. Gimme a break. They have a lady who ran a billion dollar high-tech company. So? They got a former prosecutor, a retired lieutenant colonel or something a few governors and yes, the ubiquitous congressmen. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, and a bunch of them are in their forties or fifties, not their sixties or seventies. How much could they know in only 40 or 50 years?

So, they represent a confusing array of men and the woman who have a lot of diverse…I mean “different” backgrounds, genders, nationalities, religions, professions and different things like that. So what? They only have a few DC politicians in their stable.

But we? We have a great and diverse field of northeastern white old career politicians. And one is a woman, by George! One might be a jew also. The three of them alone have at least 120 to 150 years of combined DC political experience. They have G-R-A’-V-I-T-A-S… I bet the average time the republican candidates have huddled among the DC elite is less that 5 years. See. Absolutely no depth as regards beltway politics and more important – beltway practices.

And policy differences? One word – Planned Parenthood. Can you believe all the fuss those right wing fanatical kooks are making after those damn republicans made those secret tapes of the PP bosses selling baby organs?

Republicans….  Phewww. If it rhymed I’d call them neanderthals. Like Julia Roberts said, “Republican. You’ll find it in the dictionary between reptile and repulsive.” With  a wit like that she should write her own screenplays.

Oh, be a dear and pass me the Poupon, Buffi…

ISIS, China and Planned Parenthood: The Dream Team

ISIS, China and Planned Parenthood

July 28, 2015

Over the past few years we have been exposed to ISIS and other jihadists beheadings, China’s execution of both political/religious dissidents and criminal convicts and now the slicing, dicing and sale of baby cells, tissue and organs. What a dream team.

The problem lies with ISIS. When ISIS beheads, hangs, burns or in some other way destroys a human life they are wasting a resource by allowing the useable cells, tissue and organs to waste away. This is a crime against humanity. Plus they are leaving silver on the table.

Now, the Chinese have the typical oriental pragmatic approach to the issue. When they determine that a living breathing human will be executed for various capital crimes and offenses they set it up for maximum harvesting of cells, tissue and organs. After having their head blown off by a rifle or dispatched with a 9mm to the neck, the former human is quickly slicked, diced and sold by the part. Like chopping a stolen car for pieces, the sum of the whole is greater when divvied up.

Planned Parenthood, gratefully, follows the Chinese model. When a sub-human cellular, tissue and organ mass is sucked, crushed, scraped from or in some other manner removed from the mother’s womb, great care is sometimes exerted, not as a gesture of empathy for the writhing organ mass, but for the obvious benefits of a viable cellular, tissue and organ mass. $BENEFIT$

If an infant, I mean tissue mass, is squirming, a quick snip to the neck with heavy scissors will stop the annoying writhing. Too bad for ISIS they have to deal with fully developed children and adults when they chop their heads off. Why, a 12 week old set of lungs is worth…$50? What about a 16 week old pancreas. $100? Thank God all those organs are not going to waste like the unused parts are.

We need to convince ISIS to join the triad of cell, tissue and organ harvesters…I mean recoverers. Then, we’ll have the human cell, tissue and organ dream team.

Thank you Planned Parenthood for the millions of organ masses you have stopped from becoming humanoids. Ms. Sanger would be proud. And, I for one love the collagen embryonic stem cells in my cheeks. It makes me feel so….cheeky.

The Magic of Trump

The Magic of Trump

June 20, 2015

I remember when Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy for the presidency running against Jimmy Carter for his second term. I sort of guffawed and thought, that’s funny. A former actor turned California Governor. Ha ha. Good luck. I was about 30. He turned out to be the greatest president in my lifetime and among the top tier in the history of great presidents. At least in my history. Of course I voted for him.

I just watched Donald Trump tell Bill O’Reilly the way things are. O’Reilly was trying to credit Trump’s popularity to his distain for politicians (See D.C. Politicians). As true as that is, it misses the larger picture. People are coalescing around Donald Trump because he is above those around him. He rises above the petty crowd stammering to bring him down. It makes me think of pagans howling at the colosseum beasts to tear him apart. These are his rivals in the race and the limp press, both FOX and the other rans who continue to dismiss him. Yet when they turn their fangs and stingers against him, he merely brushes them aside.

He is a Churchill in his time. His brashness is merely a way to portray his vast accomplishments. Say what you want against him, Trump gets what he wants. So, as long as he wants what I want, I’m right there with him. The real question becomes, where does he stand on issues? But that’s another story.

Trump is an armored man and we need more fortitude in our male role models. Donald Trump is our well-heeled vigorous uncle. In the family, he is the guy everybody turns to. In the town or village he’s the guy who helps a lot of people, poor and not poor. He is not interested in prestige. He sits at the top. In the city he’s the guy who makes things happen and puts thousands to work. Across the nation he is the guy who will take a tired demoralized people and reenergize them into the greatness America is. We are in a new century, a new world and a global challenge. Trump knows the terrain. His conquests are commercial, not military. But he will destroy an enemy like isis. Petroleum lies across the graves of the satans of isis.

Charles Krauthammer just acknowledged one of Trumps two lightning rods. He validated Trumps claim to the calamity our veterans face in their medical care. Another example of Trumps power. He was bashed for his attack on Senator McCain and just made it about the disgraceful condition of our veterans healthcare system – a DC responsibility.

Today he rolled up Lindsey Graham into a sticky ball. Graham was never really in the race but now he’s adios. Shut down like a tenderfoot boy scout at his first campfire. This will rally plenty of everyday men. It is the magic of Trump. It is high time that we had a non-politician, successful, straight-forward, strong, unflinching American take the helm of this nation. We have a black eye and a bloody nose on the world theatre. We need a fighter to allow US to take back our place in the world. Earth and her people depend on US.

America, a nation of so many different ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds that we hold the bar on diversity, is the lighthouse of mankind across Earth. Like it or not, we are the most generous, most successful, and most free people on Earth. We must continue to lead the way. If that means sending soldiers to help earthquake victims, than that is what we do. If it means sending soldiers to annihilate an enemy to mankind, such as Isis, than that is what we do.

Trump will run right over the stupid little crap so many of US are distracted by and let US return to our greatness. There is a whole generation of Americans who have not felt the glow of the US A as we shine around the world. President Reagan was able to do it. I am certain that a President Trump would do the same.

Child Molesters Should Be Executed

Child Molesters Should Be Executed

Most of my friends who are really messed up were the victims of child molestation at some time in their youth. For some reason people feel like telling me their stories. That’s how I know. They don’t go into detail. By messed up I mean that they abuse drugs and alcohol and their level of self esteem is at basic survival level. I have only one friend, whom I am aware of, who was molested once but seems to be what you would call “normal”.

I don’t believe in the term “capital punishment”. I don’t wish for rapists, murderers or molesters to be punished. Like a neighbor’s dog that kills a child, a child molester should merely be eliminated to assure they will never destroy another young life.

When I worked as an anti-robbery stake out officer back in the good ole days when cops were lawmen and not revenue collectors, our motto was “Zero Recidivism”. That and “Justice Through Violence” were popular tattoos. Our stated mission was to apprehend armed robbers in the commission of their crime.

In fact, we were two-man hunter killer teams who laid in ambush in high crime areas behind mirrors in convenience, liquor and fast food locations hunting fields baited with a couple hundred dollars in the till. If we were lucky enough to be in position when a strung out degenerate waved a gun in a clerk’s face and demanded the money, we would take aim, shout “Police. Freeze!” and wait for the typical reaction – which was to turn at the sound. In that split second as they were about half turned towards the sound, we would let go with a blast of 12 gauge .00 or slugs.

After shooting 18 and killing 12 armed robbers in the first year of operations armed robberies and robbery homicides plummeted. We maintained that low rate for over five years until a newly elected liberal mayor ended the project. Predictably, the robbery murder rate rose back to its default setting within a few years.

Unlike armed robbery, we can’t predict when a pedophile will strike. But once he does molest a child and once he is arrested and convicted, the socially responsible next step is elimination. Pedophilia is incurable. Zero Recidivism is the answer.

Islam

Islam

Islam in not a religion. Islam is a cult more akin to nazism than to any of the major religions. It is a cradle to grave belief system that dictates to its adherents all matter of living that incorporates societal and cultural dicta, finance, law, economics, military and “religion”.

It is based on a pan-islamic world view driven by intolerance of anything and anyone non-islamic.

Islam has grown to over a billion people since mohammed  – the scourge of civilized man – rode his stolen camel out of Mecca to Medina about 1400 years ago. Some apologists would say that Christianity has made the same strides since Jesus converted followers 2,000 years ago. The difference is in the message and the means.

Christianity, like the other legitimate religions, has at its essence a humanitarian message. Here are some essential beliefs attributed to various religions.

Christianity – Love thine enemy as thyself.

Buddhism – Strive for purity.

Judaism – Be righteous.

Shinto – God is in Nature.

Hinduism – All life is sacred.

Zoroaster – Think good thoughts. Speak good words. Do good deeds.

Paganism – The Sun is good.

islam – All people must follow the prophet. If they do not, kill them. If you cannot, convert them. If you cannot, tax them. Kill every jew even behind every rock…

Notice anything odd? Islam is all about subjugation and destruction. Some might say that it is only the radical minority who adhere to that concept. Let’s assume that’s true. Let’s say only 10% follow the koran in its literal sense. That’s 100,000,000 (one hundred million) followers who want you dead and want your way of life to cease. The other 900,000,000 are vicarious participants quietly watching and waiting in the background.

Most have lost the ability of critical thinking thanks to the strict codes dictated by the koran and hadiths. That may help explain why other than possibly the guitar, nothing of note has originated in the muslim world. Life is easy to live if you can only live the way you are told to live. Look at young children. Or pets for that matter.

When a girl is born to a muslim family she becomes the property of her father. At marriage, ownership is conveyed to the husband. Women are property with all the rights and privileges accrued property. They have the same rights as Fido or Spot. Actually, in the US Fido and Spot are afforded more rights than girls and woman have in some islamic regions. It is unlawful to beat a dog into submission. Here it is called cruelty to animals.

Sharia (islamic law) proscribes the treatment of this chattel from slapping an errant or flippant wife….. (All [three] translations agree with each other and establish the Qur’an promotes wife-beating. The Qur’an states two methods must be used to make the wife become obedient and if they do not work, then wife-beating is permitted. It also states men have authority over women, and women are to be obedient, thus establishing an authoritarian structure with the husband as head of the wife. In fact the Qur’an states Allah created men to be maintainers of women and men are superior to women, therefore Allah did not create men and women as equals)…

To honor killing ….. (Most Muslim apologists and also some gullible westerners want to argue that the ‘so called “honor killing” is not Islamic and it’s a tribal/cultural vice.’ This statement is utterly untrue and only a wishful cover up. It’s true that in pre-Islamic Arab culture this heinous honor killing of women did exist; likewise, many other uncivilized practices like stoning, flogging, beheading, slavery etc. also existed in the pre-Islamic Arab society. But Islam did incorporate entirely most of these inhumane/uncivilized practices of pagan society, which they now call Allah’s laws.) – Wikipedia and multiple news reports.

The mistreatment of muslim women by their male charges is as ordinary to islam as the (generally) western manifest respect for women is to others. These diametrically opposed cultural differences are typical of the schism between the brutal uncivilized world view of the “radical islamists” and the more mundane and humanitarian view of the majority other 7,000,000,000 Earth residents.

Going back to the pan-islamic movement, some islam apologists point out that other religions have at times used brutal and subjugating methods to bring about change in indigenous peoples beliefs. The Inquisitions perpetrated on hundreds of thousands of people by the church (1. The Inquisition was created and issued at the end of the 12th century by Pope Lucius III. 2. The Spanish Inquisition was established in 1478 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile.) were inexcusable and a blight on western history.

And so an organized major religion utilized brutal tactics to convert or destroy its antagonists between 600 and 800 years ago. Today, that same church has spread its message over much of the world through ministries and good works and not through terrorism and land conquest. Contrast that with the growth of islam that now encompasses the entire middle-east, much of north and sub-Saharan Africa, large areas of central Asia, Indonesia and even a notable part of eastern Europe in the Balkans.

Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’

A striking difference between the koran, or the word of allah given to mohammed, and Mein Kampf is that Hitler’s writing was lucid, if not demonic. Mohammed sounds schizophrenic. Both were psychopaths with demonic souls.

We are fighting the same war today in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, the Philippines and over a dozen other countries that we were when the Knights Templar were defeated by Saladin at the Battle of Hattin in 1187, thus losing Jerusalem and the Holy Land a thousand years after Christ died.

Only today, thanks to modern day travel, communications and weaponry the threat is being accelerated. Today, the complacent west, like a frog in a pot of cold water over a flame, is being lulled into submission and assaulted through its own court systems by the likes of CAIR and other pro-islamic organizations. Here is how islam is continuing its world conquest.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient muslims in a
country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree
to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they
also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works
(percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)). Keep in mind… 2007.

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given
country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a
threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films,
stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic
minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails
and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion
to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by islamic
standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for muslims.
They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their
shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland– Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to
allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The
ultimate goal of islam is not to convert the world but to establish
Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase
lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris —
car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in
uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia
formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacre, chronic terror
attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non- believers
and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia
Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic
House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a
Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust,
Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life.
It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my
family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and
the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel’ —
Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

Posted by: SaracensAtTheGates at June 28, 2008 8:35 PM – Jihad Watch.

The definition of jihad found in an early edition of the venerable Encyclopaedia of Islam states, “The spread of Islam by arms is a religious duty upon Muslims in general.… Jihad must continue to be done until the whole world is under the rule of Islam.… Islam must completely be made over before the doctrine of jihad [warfare to spread Islam] can be eliminated.” Muslim legal manuals written in Arabic are even more explicit.

Likewise, the Islamic conquests narrated in the Muslim histories often mirror the doctrinal obligations laid out in Islam’s theological texts—the Koran and Hadith. Muslim historians often justify the actions of the early Islamic invaders by juxtaposing the jihad injunctions found in Islamic scriptures.

It should also be noted that, to Muslims, the Islamic conquests are seen as acts of altruism: they are referred to as futuh, which literally means “openings”—that is, the countries conquered were “opened” for the light of Islam to enter and guide its infidel inhabitants. Thus to Muslims, there is nothing to regret or apologize for concerning the conquests; they are seen as for the good of those who were conquered (i.e., the ancestors of today’s Muslims).  Taken from Jihad Watch, author unknown.

So, there it is. In 2015 we are all in a pot of cold water over a hot flame. It is only a matter of time before we all become frog soup. allahu akbar…

Our Heroes

OUR HEROES

I was watching old westerns tonight with my dear dying friend Don. We were watching the old westerns from the Sixties. Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Johnny Yuma the Rebel. Back then some guy got smacked in every episode of every show. Usually more than one guy would get slugged and a fight would break out. Those men fought at a mans gut level.

We were raised by stories of decency overcoming descendency. Our heroes were the men on the silver screen and the real men they played – our Fathers. We were raised by the men who saved the Earth in their own times, in the wars so many have fought with honor.

We have fought wars since we went against the British in the Revolutionary War. We fought others over the decades and centuries until we are bogged down in an enervating conflict that will suck the life out of our way of life in time if we continue at the pace we are fighting in 2015. We throw our men and women in arms at an invisible enemy in a land never vanquished with hands bound by 21st century globalist hand-ringers.

And what do our young people look up to in todays life and times? Who are their heroes? An actor? A sports figure? Some dude on a reality show? Our Fathers were our heroes. Back then there were so many. Every kid’s Dad fought in the war or had a part in winning it. Today there are so few. So few children have parents who have fought and worked to support those fights. The best of our nation are standing guard around the world for you and for me.

And what are they standing for? They are protecting the people of this nation – including all of the lame-brains who support the current national place and its direction. They are protecting the rights of those among us who speak out against the nation we are. There are those who would destroy our way of life in the name of a belief system that slaps them at birth and hounds them through a hard-feeling empty life until they succumb to the spirit-breaking dicta of islam.

The world is growing weary of all the wars being fought against it. And wars mean many thousands of innocent people dying hideous deaths. And for what? The spread of islam. ISIS is their A-team and is only doing what islam has done for 1400 years. Just better.

Still we have so few who see that threat and give their future to fighting for those of us left behind to live the casual American life we live. Go to any store and find three different cherry toppings. See or get anything you want anywhere anytime. The immensity of our liberties offends the core of the men raised under that belief system called islam.

Yet so few of us seem to understand the essence of what is developing. We need to kill them there so we don’t have to kill them here. Because here is everywhere they have a significant percent of the population. They begin killing when they are a small but significant minority.

Who are our heroes today? They are the men and women who are engaged in this conflict against and ancient enemy who has been fighting since Muhammed incited jihad back in the early 600s. Like Jesus, he touched a lot of people over the centuries. Unlike Jesus he has spawned a curse on all the lands, for we are fighting his disciples on every continent as we have been fighting for over a thousand years.

The fight is in the name of jihad but, as all wars, this centuries-old fight is over resources. Wars are not fought over ideology. They are fought over resources and ideology is a comforting cause for the masses. Hitler and his followers were not interested in converting Europe to nazism. They were interested in the land to the east. Land is a resource. Islam is the perfect model to illustrate that concept.

Time to Get Over the Confederate Flag

Time to Get Over the Confederate Flag

I see with a certain amount of satisfaction a great deal of discussion about the Confederate flag after the heart-breaking massacre in Charleston perpetrated by a demonic madman who happens to be white and had some Confederate Flags in some self-portraits, known to the banal social media commoner as “selfies”.

As so many descendants of victors from long forgotten wars are quick to say, “Get over it”.

I like my Rebel Flag as much as I like my 13 Colony American Revolution Flag and for the same reason. Each is a part of my personal history. It was my direct blood ancestors who fought these wars, these two wars waged 90 years apart by the great-grandsons of earlier patriots. Two wars linked by a common value. In each war my fathers fought against the superior army and navy of a repressive government.

If my southern flag offends you than don’t fly it. The skinheads, nazis, media and those everyday Americans who condemn her are responsible for trying to demean to besmirch my Southern Heritage Flag. I’ve seen plenty of people doing the same to the Stars n Bars. They are both children of the same flag, the one that represented the unitedness of the 13 original states.

For many years I had my Rebel Flag tucked away in a dark room. I fly my Stars n Stripes every day. But last week, among the hubbub and the ubiquitous one-sided attack on my Confederate Flag, I decided to bring her out into the light of day. Now she flies brightly beside her younger brother with 50 stars, for the true union was forged by the Civil War.

My forefathers fought for their flags. I’ll fight for mine.

The Intolerance of Tolerance

The Intolerance of Tolerance

As I lie writing this during the summer of 2015 the whole country seems to be at odds about one thing or another. Obamacare. Same sex marriage. The Pacific Trade Agreement. Black v white. About the only thing we all seem to agree on is the capture and the shooting of the two escaped murderers in New York. Though I imagine more than a few readers feel a twinge of sympathy for the dead guy. The guy who murdered and cut up his boss…

There is a certain irony in the tolerance factor at play in the culture in these times. For example, the gay rights crowd – known to many mainly by their obnoxious in your face behavior – will attempt to hurt anybody who opposes their view. Anyone who happens to get caught in their crosshairs, that is.

I am certain that a vast majority of gay activists – homo or hetro – think of themselves as open to others views, tolerant of others beliefs. This tolerance, a hallmark of progressivism, often creates a mantle of intellectual, philosophical and cultural superiority over those lesser progressives such as a fundamentalist christian pizza baker in Iowa. Or a conservative jew, muslim or christian baker, taylor or candlestick maker anywhere in the US.

Not only is this baker, taylor or candlestick maker going to be compelled (as in compulsory, as in, “Djew must do exactly as ve say or djew are doompt!) to perform or go under, but they must do it well. Or else….. Believe and accept what I (we) believe or we will destroy you…

Can anyone spell i-s-l-a-m?

How about n-a-z-i?

Let’s just say me and my homey Lester are getting married now that gay marriage is ok. Oh, even though we’re gay, we’re skinheads. You know….As in ‘Heil Hitler’… With a swastika. Which is exactly what we want on our cake. With two dudes in black leather on a hawg. A teeny hawg.

Now being gay, we want only the best for our wedding cake. We INSIST on only the best!

But low n behold when we contact Maury Seidelman of Seidelman Delicatessen and Bakery, “The Finest Bakery West of Krakow” we are flatly refused. The jewass bastard won’t bake a cake with a swastika on top. I’m calling in my biker buddies and nazis to hold a rally…er, uh I mean demonstration to either make him comply or shut him down.

How dare he use his skill and talent as a shield against me! He doesn’t want to support my homosexual lifestyle so I will destroy his economic life. He hurt my feelings so I am going to destroy his livelihood. Oh, and his gay kid’s future while I’m at it…I’ll show him what happens to people who don’t tolerate my queerdom…It’s intolerable!!!

That would be an intolerant response. A real skinhead nazi type – gay or not – would not go all teary and wonky like a regular gay…. I think I’ll just find another cake maker. Let’s see. Mmmm.  Mmm Uh. Deedee du.m…Oh, here’s one. Let’s see….

He applauds the Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage, not particularly because he is for gay marriage but rather, because he is for Liberty. So, if you want to accuse him of being a queer basher, go blow yourself…

Creation v Evolution or Fred Flintstone Meets George Jetson

CREATIONISM v EVOLUTION or FRED FLINTSTONE MEETS GEORGE JETSON

The problem with this ongoing debate is the failure of each opposing party to at least consider the others proposal. The evolutionist – generally the rational/scientific approach type – scoffs at the notion of a God that created all that we know, all that is, in a week of cosmic hyper-activity. The creationist – generally the bible reading type – refuses to study scientific evidence, such as fossil record and carbon dating, that explains a lot about the universe and is often fact-based.

It is difficult to dispute the myriad scientific evidence compiled by detailed study over centuries of examination that Earth is old and that the universe is older. How can a dead animal turn to stone in 8,700 years, give or take a few centuries? It is equally difficult, at least as viewed by believers, to dispute that an omnipotent God did not create the universe in a week, since the bible tells us so. And, omnipotent is able to do anything, after all.

So where do the twain meet?  Having the ambassador’s nature of trying to bring two opposing sides to a common place, I have a different view. On the one hand I ascribe The Great One far more credit than having waved a magic wand as in, Let there be light. And there was light. On the other hand, I find the belief in the randomness of creation a little too simple.

In spite of vast progress made over the last two or three centuries in scientific endeavors, we cannot even create an alga cell. Our greatest achievements and discoveries have occurred largely in the inanimate realms, i.e. physics, inorganic chemistry, and other non-living and easily understood topics. So, while we cannot create a simplest form of life, we are masters at manipulating 1s and 0s (computer brains) and taking old dead plant and animal residue and turning it into – dubiously – useful products (plastic). The pinnacle of our achievement to date is nicely illustrated by the smart phone, which combines both 1s and 0s encased within a plastic shell made from dead dinosaurs. 

And if the bible is the Word, why did mankind evolve (some might argue that we declined) from stone tablets to smart phones in just a few thousand years?

The principles of science and the observations of nature are frequently described as elegant. The beautiful balance between electrons and protons. The perfect structure of the photon. The connection of all matter in the universe by gravitation. Is it possible that the universe was created by a Higher Order? That instead of waving a magic wand the Higher Order created the perfection we call Nature? That the universe is unfolding as it should? Could science be nothing more than mans inchoate attempt to explain what The Great One built on the foundation of natural laws?

GLOBAL WARMING AND A DECLASSIFICATION OF CLIMATOLOGY

I read with gleeful wonderment the absurdity of this obsession with global warming. The really funny part is that those who espouse it are constantly calling their findings “scientific”. The sad part of this ostentatious and never ending display is that the more they quote “science” the weaker their hypothesis becomes. Global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the dishonest and perpetuated by the gullible. The Gruber Voter.

I was raised with an appreciation of science and taught in the Jeffersonian model that included what was called the scientific approach. It has been decades since I skulked the hallowed halls of university but I have observed that the post-Gen X crowd (as a subset) is heavily lacking in an inquisitive mind and a minimal degree of critical thinking. Raised on the pablum of department of education rewrites and an accommodating media, who can blame them? They are the product of our soft stupid society and culture. They are we.

For those of you who were absent in 5th grade geography, Mother Earth, as the rest of living organisms, is in constant flux. For many thousands (millions to the evolutionists) of years the climate gyrated wildly from millennia to millennia and from century to century. Then, about 15,000 years ago (or 8,700+/- to the creationists) the moon finally reached a distance from Earth that created just the perfect gravitational pull to fix Earth at a 23* tilt on her axis. As it turns out, this was the perfect balance to stabilize her frenetic gyrations and bring a calm predictable global climate. Remember the ice age? Glaciers in the south?

Since that time continental climate has been basically static and the human population has rocketed. Of course there are climate fluctuations. When I was a kid we called them heat waves and cold spells. Yes, it is that simple. Some days are hotter than normal and others are colder than normal. Sometimes it’s rainy and other times it’s dry. That climatology is referred to as “science” is laughable today after the scam that was attempted by the global alarmists. The bedrock of science is integrity of data. No doubt they were dupes to a more clever crowd who seems to have the almighty dollar at heart.

I have a suggestion for the global warming/climate change crowd. Go find a geography book published before 1980. In it you will read the truth. Weather is not predictable. The ocean currents affect climate for months on end. Volcanoes can cause cooler than normal temperature for years after a disruption. El Nino comes and is followed years later by La Nina.

After the disgraceful revelations of mis-reported data that came in droves out of the East Anglia event…. it is sad to see a once light-hearted “science” reduced to a laughing stock by those who see the larger picture, who understand the mightiness of nature and Earth and have studied at the collegiate level physics, chemistry, biology, history, geography, philosophy, including religion and a myriad other topics that relate to our day-to-day experience in our environment, not the least being seeing sunrises and sunsets many thousands of times.

The community of climatologists and meteorologists should be outraged at the demeaning claims of the so called “climate experts”. The population has for many years taken the value of climatology and weather predictions with a grain of salt. So what if the the weather guy said Saturday would be sunny and we got rain on our company picnic? It’s nature. Nature is unpredictable, though her laws are immutable.

The sad reality is that a vast majority of the 40 and under crowd have taken this propaganda hook line and sinker. They are like a catfish with a hook stuck deep in its belly but a smile on its face for swallowing that big old piece of bait.

Well, the good news is, whether you quit driving, quit using electricity or quit breathing Mother Earth won’t notice. You see, there are some things bigger than you. There are some things bigger than us. And, Earth is one of them. We are to Earth as an ant is to a football field. So, light up your grill, crank up your lawn mower. Wash your car. Burn up those leaves you’ve been stacking up. If there is one thing we can all agree to respect, it is Earth. Earth is big. Earth does its own thing.
