  • The Christ of Mormonism (Real Mormonism)

    I vowed long ago never to involve myself with the truly nasty anti-Mormon bigotry posted routinely on these threads but the distortions and lies posted here compel me to make this post.

    I will attempt no rebuttal nor will I answer any posting that wants to contend about these matters. Contention is from Satan - not God.

    Anyone wishing to learn about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints should read the materials first hand, get to know some typical Mormons, peruse the many web sites both for and against and then after prayer, meditation and long pondering make up their own mind either for or against. If for then by all means look into it deeper. If against then drop it.

  • Does A Medical Marijuana Card Prevent The Issuance Of A Concealed Handgun Permit For Self Defense?

    I do include alcohol. A very large percentage of violent crimes are committed under the influence of alcohol and a known alcoholic should not be carrying a gun.

    And yes, there are exceptions to every right. These are dictated by common sense, common decency and human conscience. Rights are not license to do as one pleases and damn the consequences. Rights exercised irresponsibly will be lost - witness what has been happening in the United States of America. An amoral or immoral, irresponsible and ignorant people will not keep their rights and it does no service to anyone to insist that we must allow unlimited exercise of every right in any circumstance. That way lies slavery.

    I would oppose issuing a concealed carry permit to any person who uses powerful mood altering drugs even when prescribed. Just as I would oppose issuing a driver’s license or a pilot’s license to such. There must be some degree of responsibility attached to the exercise of any right. These drugs are quite powerful and tend to produce sometimes drastic misperceptions of the environment (I have seen it many times). The last thing we need is irresponsible use of firearms by otherwise law-abiding citizens because they are too intoxicated to make a fully rational decision.

    Truly free people are scary people. They are apt to think for themselves, speak without fear and act in accordance with what’s right. Truly free people succeed and fail, help and hinder, act or refuse to act in accordance with their own consciences. Truly fee people are not easily cowed or panicked and are unpredictable. Truly free people choose what they want to believe, form their own preferred associations and face the consequences of their actions squarely. A truly free people is feared by tyrants and by wicked busy-bodies intent on subverting all to feed their own perceived self-interests. Truly free people allow others freedom without fear and act to curtail freedom only by promising (and delivering) consequences for wicked acts that are punishing enough to deter the weaker among them from committing those acts. Truly free people cooperate and do not coerce.

    Truly free people are becoming hard to find. It is dangerous to be truly free for the unfree, the tyrants and their toadies and sycophants will always strive to impugn, malign and ultimately destroy the truly free. The truly free submit willingly to what is Right and Good and Wise and refuse to submit to evil and folly. This means they are a threat to the wicked and must be suppressed or destroyed.

    This is what happens when people have rights “to” things. A right to health care = free, substandard health care at the expense of those who produce. A right to housing = free, substandard housing at the expense of property owners (they stll “own” it they just can’t use it to make a living though they still have an obligation to maintain it). A right to education = unending schooling that produces mostly illiterates and ignoramuses at the expense of those who taught themselves to produce tangible goods and useful services.

    Both of your posts are very encouraging. And I assume you are a Milwaukee local and have watched him up close. Heaven knows this nation is in desperate need of real, principled leadership. Christie in New Jersey holds to his fiscal conservative points but from what I see he is no conservative in many other areas. If Governor Walker fits the bill - and your description seems to support the notion that he does - then he will certainly have my support.

    Walker’s sudden rise is more a comment on the dearth of leadership in this country than anything else. There were similar spasms of enthusiasm for Scott Brown and Arnold immediately after the elections that put them into office. Recall also some such flurries for Fred Thompson and Giuliani. It may be that Walker is the real deal but it will take time to find out. I am very encouraged by his adamant stand in the present situation and if he can see this through to a successful conclusion it will go far to elevating him to the national stage. But I don’t know anything about his stand on other matters. But it sure would be nice to discover a principled conservative with courage who is competent, articulate and persuasive. I hope Governor Walker fits the bill. Such people are few and far between.

    The Mongols also destroyed irrigation systems over large areas effectively turning once verdant and productive tracts into wasteland. And that 40 million figure may be way under the actual total slaughtered or killed indirecly as a result of famine and disease that followed in the wake of the very destructive Mongol armies.

    I believe we get insight into the kind of thinking that is pervasive among the inner circle of the green movement. Fewer humans = less carbon emissons = happy Gaiea. Not a few of these people would be quite happy to see wholesale slaughter of their fellow human beings. Their biggest worry in regards to that is means and not the end result (which they welcome). So long as people can be exterminated without filling the atmosphere with nuclear fallout or excessive carbon emissions from the burning of whole cities then it is OK (though “regretable”).

    All this tells me is that politics is as much about fads as anything else.

    All I know about Christie is that he is apparently a hard-liner on fiscal matters and not afraid to express himself with some candor. I have read some brief blurbs that he is not conservative when it comes to Second Amendment issues and some social issues. This would make him a pretty typical northeastern, left-leaning member of the GOP.

    When Scott Brown was elected there was a bunch to talk about a presidential run. In the wake of some votes he has made since then all that talk has evaporated and now he is generally referred to as a RINO. Ditto Arnold after he won the governorship. There were more than a few on these very threads who wanted to amend the Constitution to allow him to run for president. But then time passed and reality intervened and Arnold has been exposed as the leftist Republican that he always was.

    Stay sober folks. And be patient.

    The “leader” who was going to bring transparency to the House and ensure the “most ethical” House in history who pushed massive bills without reading them, who curtailed debate and amendment at every turn and who employed legislative tricks and chicanery to pass bills opposed by the majority of Americans and then denigrated those who voiced their oppositon as “nazis”.

    It occurs to me that perhaps the Tea Party people should focus their attention on some of the RAT primaries. Especially in states or districts where anyone with a (D) after their name is assured a win. Why not put up a primary challenge to the Barney Franks and Chuck Shumers? Run the primary challenges just as a standard RAT would run it - from the far left - then, if the Tea Party candidate wins he/she would move right in the general (as the RATs always do) only, instead of shifting left again after the office is won they actually stay right or move farther right.

    It’s not like the people who elect them would notice. After all we are talking about people most of whom are only marginally literate and many of whom have to bussed to the polls every election day because they would otherwise spend the day at the track, at the local tavern or glued to the TV set.

    You would have to give the movement a different name. Call it “United Progressives” or something.

    This is a little off topic but recently I was at one of the local firing ranges and observed a classic case of stupidity. The range master called the cease fire and directed that all unfired rounds be ejected, all actions open, all weapons be trained down range, all shooters move back of the yellow line and that no one was to handle a weapon while people were down range inspecting and changing targets. A guy near me and standing not more than 20 feet from the range master picked up his weapon AFTER people were proceeding down range. I don’t know what he was fiddling with but the range master immediately ordered him to put the weapon down and get back behind the yellow line. He asked the fellow if he had heard the orders given following the cease fire call and they guy said that he had. The range master, showing more forgiveness than I would have, told the guy that the orders are given for a very good reason and to not ignore them again or he would be ejected from the range. After the range master left to walk the line the guy turned to a companion and said he couldn’t understand what the big deal was because “it wasn’t loaded”. I could only think to myself that among Famous Last Words those three would have to rank among the most frequently heard (and regretted).

    And on top of this the Fed is pumping better than $100 billion a month into the money supply with its “quantitive easing” (i.e.- buy up securities with newly printed money). I am not sure what they expect to achieve but I do know that the dollar is plummeting and purchasing power with it. Inflation index remains low because our rulers redefined how to measure it by taking out things like food and energy - or so I have read. This is criminal if true.

    scory to HapaxLegamenon

    I believe the opposite is the case. It is not leftists moving from California to other states it is the republicans and conservatives.

    For decades after WWII California drew millions of people from all over the country seeking better climate, jobs and affordable housing (which it was back in the good old days). Add to this the fact that California had one of the best public school systems in the country. A lot of these people who moved to California came from the northeast and most settled in and around the L.A. basin and the Bay Area. These people did not flee their old homes because they disliked their leftist state governments and brought their leftism with them. They and their descendants vote solidly for democrats.

    It is also a fact that for decades “immigrants” have been settling by the millions in the state. The children and grandchildren of these people are now legal residents and tend to vote leftist because that is what their parents believed and voted for.

    With the advent of leftist domination of the state conservatives have been leaving in droves to escape the high taxes and insane regulation. This only serves to make the remaining electorate more and more leftist as those who would vote otherwise flee the state.

    The rise of leftists in other states is not due to Californians moving in. If anything the California transplants are more likely to be conservative. The leftists in these other states are either moving in from places like New York or New Jersey (where leftist governance is still popular) or are home grown by being under the constant influence of a degraded media and ideologically driven school systems.

The only way to lessen the volume on this garbage is to administer another thumping in the next cycle. The GOP and the Tea Partiers have 2 years to convince the voters that they are right. If the Republicans show courage and determination in blocking the leftist efforts to destroy the nation they will get plenty of support from the Tea Partiers who will be energized and possibly even persuaded that the GOP is worthy of real support and not just the sole viable party to vote for in reaction to the excesses of the insane left.

    Every so often I read some rant about how Californians have moved into a neighboring state and brought their radical leftism with them. I think the exact opposite is more likely correct. It is conservatives that are leaving the state with one of the consequences being that the electorate is more to the left than ever. This will only worsen as more right and center-right people opt to flee from the high taxes and insane regulation that is killing California.

    Another aspect of this is that following WWII millions of people moved to California from places like New York or New Jersey and other leftist bastians. They moved for the jobs and the climate and for housing (that used to be affordable way back when). These people did not move because of leftist policies in their home states and did bring their leftism with them. They settled mostly in the L.A. basin and in the Bay area.

    And finally there is the flood of “immigrants” that has swamped the state. They have been moving in for many decades and now their children and grandchildren are legal citizens who vote left.

    This election demonstrates pretty clearly that California is now about as hopeless as New York or Massachusetts or Connecticut.

    I agree with Mark Steyn, Dennis Prager and some others. If the rats do not suffer a MASSIVE defeat on 11/2 they will take it to mean that any losses suffered will be simply because of the usual out year trend plus the effects of a recession which they believe that they have no responsibility for.

    I don’t normally pray about politics save to ask that those in power be inspired with wisdom, charity and prudence. But this year I find myself praying for the defeat of those who wish to destroy the foundations of this nation. These are things that I believe were established by men inspired by God and to see them ceaselessly attacked, undermined and twisted to satisfy the desires of authoritarian fools sickens me.

    I fear that the electorate simply isn’t up to doing what must be done to save the republic. First the internal enemies of the republic must be removed from office. Then those who replace them must work to reduce government’s size and influence and to restore fiscal sanity. And then they must work to rein in the bureaucracy and - most important - limit the reach of the courts and to confirm judges who will honor their oath of office. All of this will take years and will be adamantly opposed by the leftist enemies of the republic who infest much of the media, academia, corporate board rooms and government bureaucracy. This means the ordinary citizens must step up and give unwavering support to those who are working to set things right and that they must see to it that the leftists do not again come to power. No easy task.

To Urkel and his radical leftist buddies the vast majority are incapable of actually understanding the complex nuances of the left and so have to be bamboozled into accepting these through expert salesmanship.

    And this is what makes these leftists so dangerous. They are incapable of accepting that any of their ideas are wrong no matter the evidence. If you oppose them you are either stupid, ignorant or evil. Once they (inevitably) fail in their efforts to “reeducate” and sell their idiocy their only option, as they see it, is to coerce the evil ones into taking what is good for them and like it.

    Not so. The rats were taken by surprise by the magnitude of the losses in 1994 as was the media and all but a handful of commentators. It is largely because of this that so much polling and analysis is done today.

    My point was not so much about the perpetually leftist media but about the state of this electorate.

    I too hope there will be a tidal wave of losses for the rats. But the triumphalism being bandied about in the last few weeks is, in my opinion, unwarranted and probably counter productive. If a huge blowout does not occur what will be the consequences? We have to understand that the internal enemies of the republic will not simply roll over and give up even in the face of overwhelming defeat which they will see as only temporary and which they will work tirelessly to reverse. But there is no guarantee it will be overwhelming in which case, given exploded expectations, the rats will take heart.

    Hope for the best. Expect the worst.

The history is turned upside down to portray the Arabs as poor victims and the Jews as murderous thugs. That oil money buys congressmen and senators and even presidents. It also buys media outlets and media mouthpieces willing to spout any nonsense in support of the ultimate goal of eradicating Israel and the Jews. It should be kept in mind that the Islamists speak of Israel as the “little satan” whose destruction is only one step on the path to destroying the “great satan” which is the United States of America.

  • Help! I Need A New Word To Describe The Massacre Which Will Happen To The Democrats

    I am not so certain that the rats will suffer an overwhelming defeat. They will lose seats and probably lose the House but it might not be the wipe out so many expect - or, more accurately, hope - will occur.

    Keep in mind that unlike 1994 they have had plenty of advance warning on this one. So they are doing what is most effective to stem the tide and that is to run as “moderates” or even “conservatives” while tarring their opponents with every dirty smear and distortion they can think. They are doing this because it works.

    The rats have the leftist media behind them 100%. They will not be called on lies and distortions. Quite the contrary the leftist media will pursue the lies and distortions as if they were true or they will ignore them altogether. But anything a GOP candidate comes up with that is questionable or iffy will be analyzed and repeated over and over and over in an effort to destroy that person’s chances.

    The main thing that worries me is that the electorate in this country is now so degraded, indifferent and ignorant that it cannot be counted on to make a sane decision. All the talk about the “wisdom of the American people” is mostly wishful thinking. It was this same electorate that put the rats into power. About 40% or more or this same electorate votes rat no matter what the situation is. This is an electorate where sizable numbers of people cannot name either one of their senators or never heard of Joe Biden. Many of them don’t know what century the Civil War was fought in. But over 40% of them know where their next welfare check is coming from.

    It may be that there will be a wipe out. But if there is will it be the result of a temporary spasm of impatience and frustration or will it be underpinned by a majority determined to retake the country and reinstate Constitutional law in order to preserve the republic? Will the upheaval have any duration or will it spend itself this November and then the people, thinking they’ve “sent a message” revert to type and ignore events as the country degrades?

    If we are going to play race games here then it should be pointed out that without a significant percentage of white voters going with the rats they would never win anything beyond some local elections and 50 or 60 house seats (at most).

    I am sure sick of identity politics. It will be with us forever, apparently, but it is surely one of the lowest forms of politics to pit groups against one another to gain political advantage.

  • Tancredo celebrates rising poll numbers, mocks GOP

    The governor’s race on the GOP side is a case study in ineptitude. Of the two front runners one was found to have engaged in plagarism on a report he did years ago for a private foundation and for which he was paid a great deal of money. And the other squeezed thru to the nomination without anyone bothering to vet his record until it was too late. There were efforts to get Maes to drop out but he refused so Tancredo came in on the 3rd party ticket to try and give us a viable choice against the rat, Hickenlooper. At first it looked like this would just split the vote and ensure the rat a win but now it looks like the voters are breaking heavily to Tancredo and he has a shot.

    The situation here is not at all like that in other contests. I hope the Tea Parties take note and come to understand that they MUST vet the people who are running.

    The voters in this state may just be stupid enough to elect the leftist. The polls show the race as a near toss up. Bennet voted for every big spending bill including the idiot healthcare bill. He is a standard leftist who has been campaigning as a Republican. If the people want the government to continue to be dominated by fiscal fools and morally bankrupt charlatans then they should vote for the rat party. The GOP certainly has its share of dolts and leftists but at least there is a chance of changing direction if the take the majority. There is no chance at all if the rats stay in power.

    I remember picking apples one summer. I forget what they paid us but it wasn’t more than $1.25 an hour. I also recall working to clean up an old soap factory one summer ( I smelled kind of like Tide for weeks). Got a full-time (8 hour day) seasonal job working a snack bar in a state park in my Junior and Senior years. This all happended back in the early 60’s. Are any of these kind of jobs still open to high school kids in the summer?

    If the GOP does win big one of the major benefits will be that this reprehensible woman will be reduced to the status of back bench pygmy. She may well lose her position as leader of her caucus. She might even retire.

    Or maybe it would be better if she stays put as minority leader. She is such a transparent liar and hypocrite and so bereft of originality and incapable of coherent thought that she keeping her out front of the rats only helps the opposition.

    The reaction is what I would expect from a nation and a culture where actual Christians are a very small minority with little real influence. Much of Europe is no longer Christian. America isn’t all that far behind in this. We have many who profess to be Christian but few who will act to defend their faith forcefully. The lady who went after an insulting pornographic depiction of Christ out in Colorado is one such. So naturally she will be roundly criticized for her “extremism” and use of “violence”.

    He’s just pointing out the reality of how the legislative process works in our government. The president DOES have to sign bills sent to him to make them law. The only way around that is to get super majorities in both houses and that isn’t going to happen because the GOP will not hold enough seats to override fillibusters or vetoes.

    The GOP can block and obstruct and investigate and pass bills defunding this and that or even pass bills repealing things like Obamacare. But they won’t become law. Not for the next 2 years anyway. We have to retake the White House and get large majorities in both houses to have any real chance of getting much done and that won’t happen until after November, 2012 at the earliest.

    And add to all this that if action isn’t taken to limit the reach of the courts (which congress can do) we will have all the leftist judges sitting there just waiting to make rulings striking down efforts by a conservative congress to get anything done. Plus the federal bureaucracy is packed with committed leftists who will make implementation of any bills enacted conform as much as possible to what they want and the will of congress be damned. And the leftist media will do all it can to defeat GOP efforts.

    It has take most of a century for the country to reach this point. If it can be turned around at all it will take years to do it. And that means that the people must remain committed and engaged and not let up because the policians -even the best of them - cannot carry the load alone.

    The next two years will be very tough. It will take patience and dogged determination to block the leftist onslaught. And then comes the battle for the White House.

    Only actual votes cast and counted will count. Hopeful projections and rosy predictions mean nothing. The rats are not just rolling over and even if they ARE given a huge beating on 11/2 they will not just shut up and crawl away. The leftist media will still be there and working harder than ever to undermine the republic. And Hussein will remain in the White House at least until January, 2013.

    That is well put. It will take time to reverse course (if it can be done at all) and 2010 is just the beginning.

    When I consider the task at hand it is rather daunting. First the congress must be taken and the line held against further efforts to destroy the republic. Then the presidency must be won. Then some serious work must be done to repeal much of the leftist agenda and to reduce government size and influence. And in the middle of this judges who really will uphold the Constitution must be appointed and confirmed and congress needs to impose limits on judicial reach (which they can do under the Constitution) and maybe remove a few judges along the way. All this must be done in the face of the rat party, the leftist propaganda media and a leftist controlled bureaucracy that will fight mightily to prevent all of it. It can only work if the people stay on top of this and demand that the people we elect do the job we want done. I don’t know if we are up to the task or not.
