  • Communism Never Died, It Was Cleverly Repackaged for the Historically Impaired and Useful Idiots

    communism, fascism, and socialism

    I have pondered many forms of governance and always came back to Americanism because of a single distinction.

    Which of the many isms do you prefer?

    Isms range from 0.0% government control to 100% government control.
    Isms have many labels, sub-labels, and acronyms.
    Isms may be constituted or not.
    Isms may have organic documentation or not.

    I long ago grew weary of sorting through all the variations of each and settled it with one question.

    Regardless of the name, regardless of who favors it, and regardless of what it can do for me if the first obligation of that government is not to protect people’s rights then I want nothing to do with it.

    Someone at the table asked a Japanese Admiral why, with the Pacific Fleet devastated at Pearl Harbor and the mainland US forces in what Japan had to know was a pathetic state of unreadiness, Japan had not simply invaded the West Coast.

    Commander Menard would never forget the crafty look on the Japanese Commander’s face as he frankly answered the question.

    "You are right", he told the Americans. "We did indeed know much about your preparedness. We knew that probably every second home in your country contained firearms. We knew that your country actually had state championships for private citizens shooting military rifles. We were not fools to set foot in such quicksand."

  • Orthodoxy in America Has a Convert Problem

    I doubt that most Americans even know what the Eastern Orthodox Churches

    I fear you are correct.

    The "One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church" is the first Christian church.

    Rome’s claim of a universal papal supremacy caused the creation of “The Roman Catholic Church”. Martin Luther’s 95 theses started the Protestant Reformation and creation of the “Church of England”.

    The "One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church" continues today virtually unchanged as "The Orthodox Church”.

    Religions, like all organizations once institutionalized, are prone to corruption over time. This is true of unions, governments, and churches.

    The Eastern Orthodox Church avoided the corruption by following the New Testament Covenant without making up or adding rules not in accordance with scripture.

    What came first the Chicken of the egg?

    I've never seen the difficulty with this question.

    If the egg hatched a chicken the egg was first.
    The egg may have come from an eagle.

    Is Man-made Global Warming causing an increase in hurricane frequency and strength?

    In consideration of the fact that there is ZERO scientific evidence that man directs the climate the answer is obviously NO.

    based on Horse Power, as you correctly point out. It is NOT voltage or amps by themselves.

    It is always voltage times amps, in this case 746 watts equals 1 horsepower.

    746 watts is the product of voltage time amperage and it can happen many ways. 373 volts time 2 amps equals 746 watts or 1 hp. 2 volts times 373 amps also equals 746 watts as would any combination.

    The punch line, if you will, is that all of this is determined by the internal resistance of the battery.

  • Is the Rapture a Christian Guarantee?

    I've never believed in "guaranteed salvation"

    There is a belief system that subscribes to that notion called "the Nicolaitans".

    Born again Christians know that accepting Jesus as their savior is the first step, not the destination. It can become quite involved but the journey begins with faith and never ends.

    A little faith will bring your soul to heaven; a lot of faith will bring heaven to your soul.

    Of all the cars

    My offering is my 2003 Ford Crown Victoria Sport LX but not because of its flaws but rather because it is nearly flawless.

    I owned three Mercedes-Benz diesels since 1977. I was planning to retire and in 2002 I exchanged a 1987 MB 300SDL with 380,000 miles for the Ford. My plan was to dump the Ford after I retired.

    The Ford turned out to be nearly bullet proof. I still have it and still love driving it. Make no mistake, the Ford is not a Mercedes but it is a lot more maintenance friendly and almost as much fun to drive.

    “The Future Is Female”

    The Future Is Female!
    The Past is Female!
    The Present Is Female!

    Are there many women who support the feminists fight to snatch equality out of the hands of superiority? There must be more than just Ashley Judd.

    The happiest women accept nature’s reality that male and female are complementary to each other, not equal to each other. Nature intended that they complete each other, not compete with each other.

  • Steve Harvey: My wife told me not to meet with Trump, I should have listened

    I should have listened

    Who knew? Steve Harvey has no balls.

    Harvey received intense backlash

    I didn't realize that Harvey was such a snowflake. I took a disliking for Steve Harvey's politics when I listened to him tell a black audience they must vote for Obama just because he is black. No other justification required.

    I tempered that some after Joel Osteen told an uplifting story about Harvey.

    I am suspect of people who take a decision they later regret and then blame another for their decision. Is there any word about the content of the meeting? It is also sad to realize the messenger is more important to Harvey than the message.

    ...to lift your spirits this morning

    It did just that!

    The message was not the transportation but rather who met and where.

    I literally do not understand many commercials I see today and some that are thought provoking I never remember who paid for me to see it.

    I trust those in the business know their business and their potential customers. In business you usually market the products or services to satisfy or create a desire. If you can handle the cash flow and are confident you could just skip marketing and go straight to sells.

  • It’s time to unpack the phrase “Illegal Alien”

    MosesKnows to Oldeconomybuyer
    via the legal channels “legal aliens” we call them Americans

    No, we do not call them Americans until they become naturalized citizens and we celebrate their achievement.

    The operative word is ILLEGAL. Different factions may follow the word, illegal, with a word of their choice.

    Illegal alien
    Illegal immigrant
    Illegal documented
    Illegal un-documented

    giving them rights

    Incorrect, rights are not given or granted. Rights are inherent.

    Immigration reform is one of the largest human rights challenges of our time

    Incorrect again. Immigration law enforcement is the challenge. America is not enforcing existing Immigration Laws.

    There is a well documented distinction between someone who has entered America legally and someone who entered illegally.

    Why does the left spit on Immigrants who came here legally?

    Giving

    Who is the giver and who is the givee in this scenario?

    Where does the giver obtain the funds to give to the givee?
    Does the givee pay taxes on the gift?
    Does the givee pay taxes on any gain derived from the gift?

    On a more serious note people as prominent as Milton Friedman have considered this type of plan.

    There are many ways to create an economy. America could devote its efforts to producing planes, tanks, and guns and then drop them into the pacific ocean and go home and build more planes, tanks, and guns, which will be dropped in the ocean.

    I prefer the founders’ notion of constituting a government whose sole function is to protect the peoples’ rights and protect them from fraud leaving the people free to feed, clothe, shelter, and educate themselves without government interference.

    Today's delusional world begs the question. Was she really a female or did she just identify as a female? If she is a female was she born a female? Does her birth certificate answer the question of sex with TBD?

    Setting aside the important questions and assuming her DNA will support the assertion let me say, congratulations.

    I just googled “free republic” and it came up. What are you saying?

    He is saying Google doesn't doesn't want you to visit Free Republic, he didn't say Google won't allow it.

    Google's left leaning agenda became apparent whilst observing their auto search features during the political campaign.
