  • Liberal Policies = "Feel Good Fascism” ~ Vanity

    07/29/2014 9:34:28 AM PDT · by GraceG · 12 replies
    I was in another thread and somehow my brain decided to come up with a new apt term to describe liberal control freak policies... The 3lbs of grey matter between my ears came up with the term "Feel Good Fascism". I think it encapsulates their ideology quite well. Fat People are bad and drink too much soda, so ban people from buying soda = Feel Good Fascism. Poor People Exist, so you Steal using government power to give help to people who are unable to or unwilling to work = Feel Good Fascism. Liberal policies have two components, One is...

     "Killed by a gun" places volition and responsibility on the gun In  the novel 1984, Eric Blair, writing under the pseudonym George Orwell, wrote of how unscrupulous people redefine and misuse words and language to enhance political power.  Here are four examples of Orwellian misuse of language used to promote more restrictions on firearms ownership and usage. 1.  The first usage is very simple, very powerful, and extremely common.  It is simply to substitute "by" for the correct word "with" when describing the use of a firearm.   Here is a headline from Slate:  "How Many People Have Been Killed...

    In time of difficulty one of the most important things if not the most important thing is what you speak out of your mouth. In this instance we'll see what the Bible says about times of sickness. In Proverbs 4:20-22 it says "My son, attend to my words; incline thy ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh." The word health is translated in the Strongs Concordance as- a medicine, a cure, a remedy,...

    Words matter. Words often hold great meaning. That is especially true when it comes to the words of our founding documents like the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. Those words are especially cherished. Yet in the past year it appears the Obama administration has been changing one key word in that sacred scroll. Last month the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s 2010 report revealed grave concern about both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejecting the term “freedom of religion” for the term “freedom of worship” in public pronouncements. Why the change when the First Amendment...
