  • Time to bring back the draft

    11/28/2015 1:18:55 PM PST · by QT3.14 · 66 replies
    [Snip]...I think it might be time to bring back the draft. We have become a society of ungrateful, horrid little greedy, grabby whiners. Everybody wants something for nothing. And it is most evident on our college campuses. College students today are thin-skinned, navel-gazing crybabies so desperate to be victims they create elaborate hoaxes and whine over “micro-aggressions” while they scamper to their safe spaces. But it’s nothing that six weeks with a drill sergeant screaming in your face couldn’t fix.

    American Faith Today ^ | November 28,2015 | American Faith Today
    As I check out some news stories today, it strikes me that we are certainly living in a time in which it's time to get serious about our faith and whether or not we'll stand on and for it. It's been the case for a while, and really it's always been the case. But today I'll talk about a story that features the literal banning of the Christian cross by a nation's, a Christian nation's government. There's a story of the banning of Christmas trees and Christmas carols that promote Christianity by a VA hospital. Christians were once again killed...

    Turkish news editor prosecuted for blowing whistle on Turkey's alliance with ISIS The incident involving the shooting down of a Russian warplane by the Turkish military may have had to do with Turkey’s cooperation with the radical Islamic fighters in Syria and Russia’s decision to help the Arab dictator Bashar al-Assad fight both the Islamists and the secular rebel fighters attempting to over-throw Assad. In the aftermath of the Turkish military shooting down a Russian air force plane, the killing of its pilot, and the attack on a Russian rescue helicopter, the violence between those two nations is becoming more...

    Thank You Montana. God bless each and every one of you for doing the right thing when the day is at its darkest Patriotism is alive and well among the ranchers and farmers who live and work along the 500-mile-long Canada-U.S. northern border in Montana. Montana ranchers and farmers have given us something for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving weekend. Encumbered by the never-ending red tape of government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), it would be understandable if the ranchers and farmers ignored others by continuing to go about their...
  • We’re Number One: Paying The Most For The Worst Healthcare

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/28/15 | Michael D. Shaw
    Here’s the biggest topic in public health: Why does the U.S. pay substantially more than any other country in the world for healthcare, only to realize mediocre outcomes? Consider these findings, from a 2010 Commonwealth Fund report (and things have not much improved): Despite having the most costly health system in the world, the United States consistently underperforms on most dimensions of performance, relative to other countries. Compared with six other nations—Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom—the U.S. healthcare system ranks last or next-to-last on five dimensions of a high performance health system: quality, access,...

    The LA times has an article about a homeless man who was found in possession of two submachine guns a couple of magazines, a couple of pistols and an improvised suppressor. From the picture it appears that the two submachine guns are a reactivated/remanufactured Sten in 9mm and a reactivated/remanufactured vz.26, which is normally chambered in 7.62x25 caliber, the common East block pistol and submachine gun round that is nearly identical to the 7.65x25 Mauser cartridge. This ad shows the deactivated vz.26 as being available in the European Union for 95 Euros. Parts kits have been available in the...

    Roanoke, Virginia, mayor David Bowers has just created a stir by suggesting that Syrian migrants be placed in internment camps. I found his comments interesting because, if we are going to have the Muslim so-called "refugees," I also consider placement in camps a must.Unfortunately, Bowers, a Democrat, undermined the position by drawing the poor analogy with fellow Democrat Franklin Roosevelt's interning of Americans of Japanese descent during WWII (note: some Americans of German and Italian descent were also interned). George Takei, famous for playing Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series and for, more recently, boldly going...

Ditto for the 15,000 Trudeau is bringing to Canadian soil in February. What happens in Canada stays in Canada as far as Montana ranchers and farmers are concerned.

    Katherine Jefferts Schori has opined that Islam, Judaism and Christianity are "Abrahamic faiths" and are therefore on an equal footing. However, Islam claims that it is not like Judaism and Christianity. Consider this teaching of Islam: "Asserting one's religion does not mean that you simply leave people to worship whatever they please without comment, like the Christians and the Jews do. It means that you must clearly and plainly disapprove of what they worship, and show enmity towards the disbelievers; failing this there is no assertion of Islam."

You have a presidential candidate who is deliberately stoking fear and smearing a whole population of people,” said Jones. “Somebody’s gonna go hurt some Muslim as a result of this kind of hatred.” For those who don’t remember, Van Jones is the dedicated Communist appointed by Barack Obama in 2009 as a special advisor for Green Jobs.

    The True Story of Plymouth and the First Thanksgiving Few public school students remain who remember the true story of the Pilgrim’s first few years in Plymouth Colony. The historic record was at one time a valuable part of American education. Essential lessons were learned from the failure of our nation’s first disastrous experiment with communism. The first settler’s failure actually birthed the implementation of free market economics in the new world. The truth of much of America’s history simply does not support the politically correct narrative of today’s textbook authors, so the truth has dwindled into obscurity over the...

    Socialism has never worked in the past. Socialism does not work in the present. Socialism will never work in the future. The reason is simple: socialism is predicated on a violation of two of the 10 commandments of God. The 8th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not steal.” The 10th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not covet.” And yet socialism is driven by covetousness – the greedy, grasping hunger of some for other people’s money – and built on theft – the use of government power to coercively lift money from the wallets of some in order to give it to others....

    PETA and Hannibal are urging Americans to go vegetarian this Thanksgiving by comparing turkey to human flesh. It used to be the joke that a Puritan (aka Pilgrim) was someone who lay awake at night worrying that someone, somewhere, was having a good time. There aren't many Puritans around these days. Instead, we have the joyless scolds at PETA, and some of their not-so-bright Hollywood pals, trying to ruin the holiday the Pilgrims originated. Just in time for Thanksgiving, creator Bryan Fuller and star Gillian Anderson of NBC's cannibal-themed show Hannibal joined forces with PETA to produce an ad against...

In my last post, I introduced you to a now long-forgotten work of fiction from the 1880s that invented much of what we think we "know" about the First Thanksgiving. In today's post I begin a two-part review of arguably the most popular modern-day recreation of that event. In what I can only attribute to God's sense of humor, the month after IVP released my...

    In the latest high-profile racial railroading of a white policeman for obvious political reasons, it has taken authorities over a full year to decide to charge Chicago cop Jason Van Dyke in the fatal shooting of black 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The obviousness of the racial/political theater here is largely due to the fact that the timing of the ridiculous charge — first degree murder — being suddenly announced after all these months, so transparently coincides with the sudden FOIA public release of a police dashcam video of the shooting which, to the untrained eye, looks pretty bad.

    s The enthusiasm gap among voters is the deciding factor in elections; it tells us the true story. In years when Republicans won big they controlled the enthusiasm gap: 1994 it was 44/33; 2002 it was 46/39; in 2010 it was a massive 63/44 and in 2014 it was 42/32. When Democrats won in 2006 they held a 52/41 edge in enthusiasm among their voters. So far Hillary Clinton’s campaign is not generating enthusiasm. A recent New York Times piece presents a serious warning for Clinton. It’s not based on a “feeling” but on surveys of her supporters. Among voters...

When asked to identify which film, she said that that information was highly classified and contained on one of her personal file servers which has been temporarily misplaced.

Limits on the numbers of refugees admitted per fiscal year were raised to 50,000 from 17,000 and special provisions were put in place for “emergency” resettlement.

Goldman Sachs is once again raising the possibility of oil dipping into the $20s per barrel. That spells more pain for the energy sector. Many companies have already slashed spending and culled their payrolls, but the total number of job losses continues to climb. According to Graves & Co., an industry consultant, oil and gas companies have laid off more than 250,000 workers around the world, a tally that will rise if oil prices remain in the dumps

    Donald Trump tops a new poll of candidates Americans think are most likely to say something inappropriate during Thanksgiving and ruin the meal. The survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling finds that 46 percent of Americans think Trump would say something to kill the mood surrounding the turkey feasting.

    The American people complain of having no one to take the reins of leadership against the army of Socialist Progressive Liberal politicians and biased Media moguls who are destroying our way of life. Well you may not like his arrogance, his hair, his swagger, his tone, his brashness, insulting remarks or something else about him. But one must be impressed with his power of conviction and willingness to express it, political correctness be hanged. His name is Donald Trump. A strong man, a non-politician who owes nobody anything and promises he will bring America back to strength, world leadership and...

    President Obama thinks Republicans are scared of the Islamic State.  We are not.  But we’re terrified of Obama’s policies, the New York Times editorial board and the liberal narrative they are spouting. The president said the Islamic State "can't beat us on the battlefield so they try to terrorize us into being afraid."  The Left’s response to being bullied to is be foolhardy, call Republicans fear-mongers, and deny responsibility for the entire situation. The New York Times editorial board took Obama’s side Sunday, in a piece titled “The Price of Fear.” History will always be kinder to those who are...

    Ladies and Gentleman, across the world radical Islamic Jihadists secretly plot the destruction of Judea-Christian governments and everywhere take the lives of those who will not bow to their god Allah! We have been asleep and are way behind in our efforts to prevent the spread of this brutishly evil Islamic system that combines a falsified religious dogma with a special kind of gratuitous terror. As if it couldn't get any worse, radical Islamists are getting away with a murderous takeover of the world, while convincing those weak of mind and ignorant of Islam's methods, that it's their own fault....

    The American Thinker ^ | 11/22/15 | Mark Musser
    While many speak of "Islamo-Fascism" these days, they do not really seem to take the history between Fascism and Islam very seriously. Many pundits like to use the term "Islamo-Fascism" as a political metaphor, but strangely, they have far less interest in actually connecting the dots historically. Yet the actual historical connections between Muslims, Germany, Fascism, Nazism and Neo-Nazism runs deep. This is a very serious omission and overlooked area with regard to the so-called war on terror ...

    When all else fails, try no sex. Chicago’s street violence is so bad that a very brave and self-composed South Side woman, April Lawson, is organizing black women to vow no sex until the killing stops, like now! “Make sure these fools put down their guns,” she’s telling her lady warriors. And her sex strike mission is based on Aristophanes’ classic Greek play, “Lysistrata!” To stop the perpetual war between Athens and Sparta, a strong Athenian woman “explains to the other women: They are to withhold sexual privileges from their menfolk as a means of forcing them to bring an...
  • Election Day will go down in history as “The Great Comeuppance of 2016”

    The Great comeuppance of 2016 is coming. Americans are burning to deliver an old fashioned ass-kicking comeuppance to a list of people and Donald Trump has been judged to be our best chance to make this happen. This is why the “gotcha” questions and personal attacks that stop other candidates have no effect on Trump’s march forward. We don’t care; we want payback. Webster’s defines “comeuppance” as “a punishment that someone deserves to receive.” In everyday terms we know “comeuppance” as “kicking ass and taking names,” and that is what we want Trump to do for us. Americans have had...

    Of course the greatest terrorist fear that they have from all of us is that we just might vote Republican I realized this morning, in the middle of my first cup of coffee, that I should be classified as a terrorist! I mean who knew? Thinking back, Janet Napolitano accused veterans of being potential terrorists. I’m a veteran who spent two fun-filled years in Viet Nam, so the worthy Ms. Napolitano has declared me to be a terrorist. Are you a member of the Tea Party (or even fellow traveler of those good folks)? When the answer is a resounding...
