You don’t want to laugh

Has anyone reading this actually seen the 16-minute video entitled Fitna?  If not, you need to.  (At the time of this writing, you can still view it on this page.)

While the West is reciting it’s parrot immitation “Islam is a religion of peace,” we have the Quran and it’s followers proclaiming death to all who do not turn to Islam.

It’s like, “You better start reciting the line that Islam is a religion of peace or we’re going to kill you.”

If you say this is an over-reaction, you seriously have your head up inside a dark cavity looking for your last meal.  Pull it out. Look.  Listen.

The Free Speech You Have Now Will Be Gone

 Do you really believe that once Islam controls a geographical area that they let “non-believers” continue their free speech?  On the contrary.  Those non-Islamic bleeeding hearts who currently support Islam will be killed.

 Oh, that it were not that way, but it is.  Every woman, every Christian, every homosexual, every Buddhist, every independent thinker — everyone! — Every non-Muslim will be forced to convert to Islam or be killed.

Believe me, those of us foretelling this do NOT want to laugh when it happens to say “we told you so.” 

Instead, we will certainly cry.  The freedom our parents, our grandparents, and our great-grandparents fought so hard to achieve will disappear simply because of a misguided view of tolerance. 

The TRUE Meaning of Tolerance

In a true sense of of tolerance, we certainly tolerate people who have differing views. But when it comes to how we defend and protect freedom, we draw a boundary and say “this is our policy; this is our Constitution – you shall not change it.”  And it’s because the Constitution guarantees tolerance that we defend it so fiercely.

How can it be inflammatory to Muslims if we simply cite their own religious book and play videos of what their Imams are saying (that those who are not Muslim shall and ought be killed)?  What kind of twisted logic agrees it’s inflammatory to a group to quote what the group believes?

 The misguided tolerance, kind. 

Believe me people – you do not want to laugh.  Draw a boundary. Stand up, or you shall surely be cut down. 

Again — if you’ve not yet seen the video, do so here.

A little prediction of a nation divided . . .

I find it rather unsettling that GWB wants to split the nation of Israel and give 1/2 to the “Palestinians.”  Split the nation in half?  I recall a particular passage many refer to as Matthew 7:2, which reads, “”For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Then there’s that little matter of Genesis 12:2-3, which reads

I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
  [emphasis added]

Now if I recall, that’s a little quote from God.  No loquacious sort, that God.

A little prediction from little ol’ me:  GWB wants to divide the nation of Israel — physically; therefore God will return the favor and divide the nation of GWB.  Physically.

Not fun times ahead for a particularly well-known North American country if GWB continues on with this crazy little idea.

Would like your impressionable teenager to sleep in a tent with a homosexual?

Hey parents!  Do you want your teenage son to be camping with a scout leader who likes boys?  As in “likes boys A LOT?”

Look at what the Boy Scouts of America do:

They’re a private, non-profit organization that keeps THOUSANDS of kids off the street and focuses them on activities that make them productive members of society.

They teach kids to be self-sacrificing for the good of their community.

They teach kids to be honorable.

Why is it that so many are trying to force the scouts to accept (read: endorse) homosexuals within their ranks?

Sad that the Philadelphia city council is trying to jack around the scouts because the scouts won’t subscribe to endorsing a homosexual lifestyle.

Let’s just call it for what it is: Extortion.

 As a refresher for those who may not understand the meaning of the term:

Extortion:  the act of getting money, etc. by threats, misuse of authority, etc.:  sometimes applied to the exaction of too high a price

In 1927 the scouts were granted permission to use Philadelphia city property for the sum total of $1 per year …. the permission was to be indefinite.  Specifically, “in perpetuity.” As in FOREVER.

But now, because the scouts won’t endorse a homosexual lifestyle, the city is voiding their agreement and jacking up the price to $200,000 per year.

Can we find a comparison?

To get a clearer perspective on this, it’s always good to find a parallel comparison.  But on something as emotionally charged as someone’s sexual drive, it’s a bit tough.  So engage your BRAIN and think for a minute:

1. The city charges the private non-profit (PNP) boy scouts an inexpensive ‘rent’ of $1-per-year.  But because the PNP scouts don’t believe they should endorse homosexuality, the city wants to jack up the scouts’ rent to $200,000-per-year.

2. A food bank is also a private non-profit. What if a community had a vegetarian food bank?  First of all, would it make sense for the local beef farmers to sue them because the food bank was discriminating against the consumption of beef? 

Second, if the city were providing $1-per-year ‘rent’ to this PNP vegetarian food bank, should the city up the rent to $200,000-per-year just because the food bank doesn’t want to carry beef products?

Thinking differently

Much talk has been offered on BOTH sides of the homosexual issue regarding genetics.  Pro-homosexual arguments say it both ways:

a) It’s not genetic, I’m just a homosexual. Why can’t you just accept me the way I am?

b) It’s genetic — God made me this way — so how can you not accept me?

Those who believe homosexuality is wrong (quoting the biblical reference “It is an abomination”) also take both views, but for different reasons.

a) He’s chosen the homosexual lifestyle, and it’s wrong.

b) It’s genetic, and it is therefore an illness.

Let’s consider the last statement: What if homosexuality IS genetic? If so, couldn’t it be an illness?

Think of it this way: When a person is born with a congenital birth defect, don’t we try to fix it?

For example, the congenital birth defect Patent Ductus Arteriosus occurs when the shunt connecting the pulmonary artery and the aortic arch fails to close after birth. When this happens, the infant can experience shortness of breath and cardiac arrhythmia — and can end up with the child experiencing congestive heart failure if uncorrected.

The good news?  It’s totally treatable!

Now, name ANY genetic defect that you wouldn’t fix if it were fixable.

My point is this:

“IF” homosexuality were genetic

and

“IF” it is an illness

Wouldn’t you want it fixed?

Consider other genetic conditions:

Let’s say you knew of a man who was ADHD and had Tourette’s syndrome as well as Asberger’s syndrome. His recurring thought, as observed with people who have this combination of genetic conditions, is quite probably “hurt people. Choke them to death.”

These are genetic issues! Would you let your teenage son sleep in the same tent with this man on a weekend camping trip?  Would you want such a man leading a scout troop?  Would you even let the same person in your home to visit alone with your child?

Now, use your brain (and leave your libido out of it):

If homosexuality is genetic, would you really want a homosexual person sleeping with your impressionable teenage son in a tent?

All medical possibilities aside

Let’s even take the genetic possibilities out of the picture.  Most homosexuals (not all, but an overwhelming MOST), by their own admission, enjoy multiple partners. Therefore, they do not subscribe to an “honor” code. In fact, such behavior is not self-sacrificing, it is self-indulgent.

This alone goes against what the private, non-profit scouting organization stands for.

Why would any vegetarian food bank bring someone into their leadership (and example-setting / decision-making) ranks who encourages people to eat meat?

You wouldn’t expect a city to force a PNP vegetarian food bank to bring those people into its fold. And neither should they do the same to the Boy Scouts of America.

Why Amerika is no longer America

The dream is gone.

 Over the last century, the elitists have been chipping away at the fiber of the American spirit. What we have now is a pile of lint. The Constitution? Mere paper. The elitists have found their ways to circumvent it.

Rule of Law? A thing of the past. Presidential Directives override laws created by Congress. Federal and state governments selectively choose which laws they will enforce–and which they will ignore.

We have students pledging allegience to the MEXICAN flag, while reciting a pledge to the US flag is deemed illegal by a US court.

We have Muslims telling us they’re going to cut off the heads of Britney Spears and Madonna if they don’t convert to Islam, and that’s okay. But we’re asking for World War III if anyone utters a bad word about Muhammed.

For example, take the Muslims killing Christians IN NIGERIA because someone IN DENMARK published a cartoon spoofing Muhammed.  We have WHACKOS defending this barbaric behavior, yet Kathy Griffin tells Jesus to “Suck it” and when people say they’re offended, she tells them to get a sense of humor. At WORST her speech is edited so the “offending” statement is not aired on Television.

We can’t have any kind of Christian prayer in school because of the “ALLEGED” separation of church and state, but now the Muslims are getting special rooms for prayer mats, are allowed to pray five times a day AT SCHOOL, and also get special accomodations for foot bathing.

We have Amerikan-based companies manufacturing their goods in Chinese sweat shops while almost all manufacturing has disappeared from between our shores–along with hundreds of thousands of jobs.

 By more than 2:1, the citizens of this country disapprove of how the President AND how Congress are doing their jobs.

We have career politicians–who make their living by grandstanding–telling a 4-star general he’s a failure, and advising him how to do his job.

We have waiters and office workers getting fired for putting themselves at risk in their attempts to save others.

You may think I’m just focusing on the negative.

In this post, yes, I am.  While I’m as positive and results-focused as can be in my day-to-day interactions, I’m also a REALIST, and I’m tired of being played as a pawn.

What do I mean? Watch this 14-minute interview with filmmaker Aaron Russo:

Amerika is no longer the America I thought I grew up in. And that’s REALLY sad.

Have our legal experts become blind, or are they intentionally stupid?

The cross in the Mojave Desert has now been deemed unconstitutional.

WABOS. According to the AP story, the cross was built by WWI veterans in 1934. The land becomes part of a national preserve in 1994. Amazingly, it’s suddenly unconstitutional. An endorsement of religion. Have our legal experts become blind, or intentionally stupid?

Anybody care to look at a school textbook compiled by the principal of a New York City High School and printed by Harvard University in 1900?  The textbook, titled “Selections from the Bible: For Use In Schools” (see the digital copy on Google Books), was used in PUBLIC schools.

Published by Harvard.

Compiled by a Ph.D. High School principal.

Used in Public Schools.

Selections from the Bible.

What about records of Congress? In 1787, when delegates to the Constitutional Convention had been arguing and getting nowhere for weeks, Benjamin Franklin arose and addressed George Washington, president of the convention:

(NOTE: The following is taken from ThisNation.com, a fully accredited high school civics curriculum)

Mr. President,

The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other–our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own want of political wisdom, since we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of Government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.

  In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. –Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth–that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that “except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.

I therefore beg leave to move–that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service.

To this day, Congress opens its sessions with prayer.

How is it that the US Constitution was created “with prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven,” and the first Amendment to the Constitution tells us that Congress shall pass no laws prohibiting the free exercise of religion, yet a cross is deemed unconstitutional?

Don’t EVEN feed me that “establishment clause” crap. Use your heads. THINK. Engage your adult logic, not your parrot. Read for yourself snippets from the various state constitutions that were in place BEFORE the US Constitution was written.

THINK: Would representatives from these states (many of whom had been involved in writing their own state constitutions) design a federal constitution that was counter to what existed in their state constitutions?  Again: Read for yourself.

After you THINK, perhaps you will realize how twisted this land’s legal logic has become.

It’s a great example of Dog-Wagging

The 1998 film Wag the Dog (starring Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, and Anne Heche, among others) shows how EASY it is to manipulate public opinion “via television.”

Well, you can watch the real thing happening on CNN this week with Christiane Amanpour’s “documentary” (aka propaganda piece) entitled “God’s Warriors.”

This is Dog Wagging at its best.

This is also cause to use one of my favorite acronyms, WABOS.

The propaganda in this series is obvious to any balanced-thinking individual.  (read what might be included in a balanced approach.)

In fact, I think this Dog Wagging is so powerful, it goes beyond propaganda.  I think the real questions ought to be: Why is Christiane prostituting herself in this manner? Who is she doing this for? And for what in return?

Welcome to Wichita – Where the Constitution DOES NOT APPLY

Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, and steer clear of Wichita to pray.  Unless you want to get arrested.

Here’s a trivia question for the police and the city officials of Wichita:

Which amendment to the US Constitution had the following wording go back and forth in various committees before the states ratified the final version?

On June 7th, 1789, this particular amendment to the US Constitution was proposed by James Madison: “The Civil Rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, nor on any pretext infringed. No state shall violate the equal rights of conscience or the freedom of the press, or the trial by jury in criminal cases.” 

Then, on July 28th, the House Select Committee offered the following wording: “No religion shall be established by law, nor shall the equal rights of conscience be infringed.” 

Representative Samuel Livermore then offered the following on August 15th of that same year: “Congress shall make no laws touching religion, or infringing the rights of conscience.” 

The House of Representatives finally arrived at the following version on August 20th: “Congress shall make no law establishing religion, or to prevent the free exercise thereof, or to infringe the rights of conscience.”

The Senate then took up the bill and dinked around with it, offering the following wording on September 3: “Congress shall make no law establishing religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” 

The Senate’s final version came on September 9th: “Congress shall make no law establishing articles of faith or a mode of worship, or prohibiting the free exercise of religion.” 

Then, in Conference Committee, this wording was proffered: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” 

On September 24th of 1789 the final wording was accepted by the House of Representatives, and the Senate accepted that wording on the very next day. It was ratified by the States in 1791.

Let’s read that part again: “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Step 1: Engage brain.

Step 2: Read and consider the meaning of the debate.

Step 3: Note the term “AMENDMENT” to the US CONSTITUTION.

Step 4: Note that in Wichita, Kansas, you get arrested for praying.

Where’s the ACLU?

Should we continue to accept Wichita as part of America?  They are no longer abiding by the US Constitution. . . .
