Occupy NYC Feb 28: If you think that we pray we gonna fix this mess, you a dipsh_t!

From my YouTube page: February 28, 2012 An "Ad Hoc Committee against the Suppression of the Occupy Movement" rally was held in Union Square Park in NYC. Actress Susan Sarandon says "Repression is not acceptable". She is followed by an African American reverend dressed in "holy uniform" who says (sounding like Star War's Jar Jar Binks) : "If you think that we pray we gonna fix this mess, you a dipsh_t. We not going anyplace".

Holy men are so overrated!

Jesse Jackson: 'It's an Honor to Be a Food Stamp President'!

While speaking last Saturday morning at his Rainbow PUSH forum, Jesse Jackson, who never ceases to amaze, opened his mouth and uttered the following:  

Say, it's an honor to be a food stamp president. Food stamps feed the hungry. Food stamps save the children. Food stamps help the farmer. Food stamps help the truck driver. Food stamps help the warehouse. Food stamps help the store. Food stamps hire people and feed people. Food stamps save people from starvation and malnutrition. Whenever you attack feeding the hungry, you undermine the moral authority of our faith. Give President Barack Obama a big hand. Show your love. Show your appreciation.

Gee, one could almost conclude that actual jobs would accomplish the same results. Hmm, I wonder what will happen when our government runs out of money. Oh well, let's all just live for today, forget about tomorrow and see what happens.

Dick Morris: Obama Will Lose!

Says Dick Morris: "When you look at the numbers, Obama can't get re-elected....In head to head balloting, Romney defeats Obama 50 to 46. The undecided voter always goes against the incumbent."

A friend and advisor to Bill Clinton during his time as Governor of Arkansas, Morris became a political adviser to the White House after Clinton was elected president in 1992.

ESPN Announcer James Bates Falls Off His Stool!

If you haven't seen this yet, it's pretty funny. During the pregame of the Xavier and Dayton game, announcer James Bates demonstrated that the unexpected can happen at any moment on live TV. As Bates was preparing to announce the game with Steve Wolf, the stool that Bates was sitting on broke and he promptly dropped to the floor. Bates jumped right back into the action as if nothing had happened. "We're ready to rock...you see how rough things are here!" said Bates.

Doing the right thing in America!

If someone asked you the definition of "doing the right thing", where would your reasoning come from? Take a look at the picture to the right. Notice how the permanent boundary marking is subject to a temporary twig which has fallen beside the road. Soon the twig will be gone leaving a permanent reminder of a temporary obstruction. Many choose to live their life in this manner, a life defined by present circumstances and guided by a relative moral compass. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind. Is there a better way?

I invite you into the minds of four great conservative thinkers as they peer behind this seemingly thin veil of ethical contradiction and observe the current state and direction of the United States of America.

Is the New Morality Destroying America? 

By Clare Boothe Luce, American playwright, legislator, and diplomat.

But what history does tell us is that when the majority of the people begin to abandon their version of the universal morality, their society sooner or later begins to collapse, and is eventually destroyed. Unfortunately in America today there are many individuals who have renounced traditional morality for what has come to be called "relative morality" or "situational ethics." ("It may be wrong in general, but my situation is different, so for me it's right.")

Who gets to make the rules?
By Cal Thomas, conservative American syndicated columnist. 
If God is not God and if man says God didn't say what He has said, then what standard is to be used to judge anything? It is more than a slippery slope. It is slippery theology with potential consequences that are eternal. Who gets to decide, God or man? If man, then man becomes God and God is diminished, at least in man's eyes.

Freedom Requires Morality
By Don Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association. 
But the truth is that all our fine talk about personal freedoms in the U.S. can be nullified by the freedom we take with the moral laws of God. … Our consciences have become blunted and dulled with an overdose of pseudosophistication and broad-mindedness. We have become so tolerant of sin and sinfulness that we have lost our capacity to protest and rebel against plain indecency and moral rottenness.

Ethics Codes Don't make People Ethical
By Michael Josephson, founder and president of Josephson Institute. 
"You see, there are two aspects to ethics: discernment (knowing right from wrong) and discipline (having the moral willpower to do what's right). A code can help define what's right and acceptable and provide a basis for improving sanctions on those who don't follow it. But unless it reinforces an established ethical culture, it won't do much to assure that people do what's right.

How to avoid casting a racist vote in 2012!

I originally wrote this piece on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, long before Herman Cain entered the 2012 race. For this reason, you'll find it even more prophetic this election year. Mark my words, once the Republican nominee is chosen, the race card will be brought back to the table (This is one of many reasons why I really wanted Herman Cain to win the nomination).

According to most English definitions, racism involves the belief in racial differences, which acts as a justification for non-equal treatment (which some regard as "discrimination") of members of that race.Neither the white, black nor Asian man can claim sole custody of its ill effects when it suits their political or social agenda. Yet even today many certainly still do.

In an article in the Politco on November 5th, 2008 we were reminded that fully 96 percent of black voters supported Obama and constituted 13 percent of the electorate, a 2-percentage-point rise in their national turnout. As in past years, black women turned out at a higher rate than black men…McCain won only 57 percent of the votes of white men.  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1108/15297.html
You see, blacks out-voted whites almost 2-1 in favor of the African-American candidate choice in 2008. Now this does not appear very “fair” during a time when giving our “fair share” was the very bedrock of the Obama campaign and subsequent administration. It’s funny how this message did not seem to manifest itself at the polls. Now, relax your mind a moment. Imagine if Obama was white and McCain was black. What if 96 percent of white voters supported McCain while Obama won only 57 percent of black voters? The mainstream media and liberal electorate would certainly cry foul while demanding a recount. “Racism” they would cry!
Interestingly, it appears that in West Virginia “racism” only accounts for 20% of the voter population. On May 14th, 2008 the Huffington Post wrote: Fully 20% of the voters consisted of whites who reported that race was a factor, and they voted for Clinton 84-10 over Obama. That's a total racist vote of 17%. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-k-wilson/west-virginia-countrys-mo_b_101651.html
An impassioned “total racist vote” they exclaimed! Yet where were the cries from this same Huffington Post concerning those 96 percent of black voters who supported Obama over McCain?
Silence echoed throughout the liberal left.
Only 4% of black voters chose a white candidate while 43% of white voters chose a black candidate, that's 4% vs. 43%. Don’t cry racism unless you’re willing to justify non-equal treatment of members of one race. Hey, isn't that racism? Using the logic of the Huffington Post, 96% of black voters exhibited racism towards John McCain. John’s a nice guy and doesn’t deserve this, even Barack said so! Racism can be a tool for social engineering and the Huffington Post continues to use it to this very day. This blogger would like to note that there are many great black leaders alive today who should run for President but would never garner support from at least 96% of black voters since they happen to be conservative. Not racism, just plain stupidity.
So how can Americans avoid casting a potentially racist vote in 2012? Truly, if we are to resolve ourselves of any possible claims of discrimination then we must cast our vote in an equally and racially fair manner. For example, since blacks consist of roughly 13% +/- of the electorate, then that is the “fair” percentage which voters should attribute to any black candidate during the next electoral tally. 87% of you black voters are going to have to choose a non-black candidate. Sorry Barack, but it’s the only way to avoid a truly racist vote. America can thank the Huffington Post for bringing this potential travesty of social disorder to light.
As for me and many other great Americans, we prefer to simply look at the candidates as racially equal individuals and cast our votes according to conscience and political alignment. Sounds fair to me!

Gas prices gone wild!

Gasoline $4 a gallon in an election year? In fact, gasoline stations may have to hire part-time 'price adjustment technicians' just to keep up with the hourly prices increases. That's at least a few jobs Obama can take credit for. You're about to find out why.

Finally we know of at least one thing the 'left' can't blame on George W. Bush. One administration ago on June 20, 2008, came this plea: President George W. Bush urged Congress this week to end a ban on offshore oil drilling, responding to consumer anxiety over soaring gasoline prices. Bush said opening federal lands off the U.S. coast — where oil drilling has been banned by both a presidential executive order and a congressional moratorium — could yield about 18 billion barrels of oil. By Reuters Staff

Two years later with our current President at the helm on December 1, 2010 it was revealed that: The Obama administration announced on Wednesday that it had rescinded its decision to expand offshore oil exploration into the eastern Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic Coast because of weaknesses in federal regulation revealed by the BP oil spill....Ken Salazar said that a moratorium on drilling would be in force in those areas for at least seven years, until stronger safety and environmental standards were in place. By NYT JOHN M. BRODER and CLIFFORD KRAUSS

You are paying more at the pump today, right now, because of President Obama, at least until 2017 that is. Take heart, for only have five more years to wait. No worries for Mr. Obama however, who will be a private citizen by then.

Since the United States remains energy dependent, we are at the mercy of whatever price any oil producing country wants to charge us. Unfortunately, they have a different attitude "The West's determination to prevent Iran acquiring nuclear weapons is coming at a price - a price that might include a second global recession triggered by an oil shock," said David Hufton from the oil brokerage PVM. Isn't it time we started using our own natural resources rather than drain those from some distant, far off country? Why aren't those who have the very same concerns about oil drilling here in the USA, equally concerned for our neighbor's property?

Remember what I just said, watch this and learn how President Obama weaves his web of deceit and misinformation:

Santorum says Obama agenda not "based on Bible"!

Today Rick Santorum told supporters of the conservative Tea Party movement at a Columbus hotel. "Obama's agenda is "not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology," Source

Is Rick in the ball park of reality? Well, allow the President tell you in his own words. On June 28th, 2006, then Senator Obama gave a speech to the liberal Christian group "Call to Renewal" where he said: “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount? “So before we get carried away, let’s read our Bible now,” Obama said, to jubilant cheering. “Folks haven’t been reading their Bible.” He also called Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount “a passage that is so radical that it’s doubtful that our Defense Department would survive its application.”

Then Senator Obama's comments demonstrate that taking words out of context in order to construct a false pretext may help you win elections in the short term but also displays a complete lack of ethics and integrity as he persists in knowingly misrepresenting Holy Scripture. What follows is a portion of this speech where he begins with "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation......"

Ron Paul: Why Can't We 'Put Into Our Body Whatever We Want?'- Part Two!

So do we have the right to put into our bodies whatever we want?

Ron Paul fans have attempted to rebuke me in my response to Dr. Paul's recent statement "Why is it we can’t put into our body whatever we want?" in my previous post here.

I suggested that not everything available to put in our bodies is beneficial nor wise to ingest. The Bible says: With freedom comes great responsibility. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

To which a commenter named Paul responded:
"Of course what Paul might ask is where in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 does the text say we are responsible for what *someone else* puts into their bodies? Does mandated good behavior bring people closer to God? Does Jesus teach us that we gain righteousness by behaving well? By believing in laws to make us good? Christianity is based on our own good behavior no matter what others do around us or to us. There is no command that we make others behave well."

I answered: "The Christian has the responsibility to live out God's Word as written and tell others the truth within it. Dr. Paul used the word "we" including himself. Isn't he also a Christian? We cannot command others to behave well, but the Christian should certainly not encourage people to put in their bodies whatever they want!"

In fact, Dr. Ron Paul is a self ascribed Baptist. Taking Dr. Paul's comment to it's logical and eventual conclusion, those who continue to put "whatever they want" into their bodies will have an affect on the rest of society. Just take a look at the unrestrained society of Sodom and Gomorrah if you doubt this. Many lifestyle choices lead to serious health issues, death of self as well as the unintentional deaths of others who "got in the way". Everyone should agree that the Government has the right and responsibility to "interfere" with the rights of individuals for the common good at a certain point. At which point, we will never entirely agree. Hence, the purpose of democracy. 

Politically, I agree with Dr. Paul on quite a bit and admit that even he would be a better alternative as President than out current leader who I believe is governing against the will of the people. (My current favorite is Rick Santorum.) But like any politician, Paul must be held accountable for his ideas and values when they extend beyond the perimeter of public safety and the greater common welfare.

What do you think?

Ron Paul: Why Can't We 'Put Into Our Body Whatever We Want?'

“If we are allowed to deal with our eternity and all that we believe in spiritually, and if we’re allowed to read any book that we want under freedom of speech, why is it we can’t put into our body whatever we want?” Paul told more than 1,000 people at a rally in Vancouver, a suburb of Portland, Ore.

The answer you seek Dr. Paul, is simply this: Not everything available to put in our bodies is benefitial nor wise to ingest. With freedom comes great responsibility. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I will agree with at least one tidbit Dr. Paul shared in his speech from his Vancouver rally "The wealth of our country is gravitating to the few. In a free society their will always be rich people. The rich make a lot of profit because they sell prducts we like and need and there should be nothing wrong with that."

President Obama wanted high gas prices way back in 2008!

Gas on the rise again! Ask yourself, after three years as President; is this STILL George Bush's economy? Obama thinks so. Had he supported the extraction and use of USA's own natural resources three years ago (by means of new oil explorati...on) instead of asking other countries to extract theirs, the USA could have long since been debt free and holding its own! I guess the President believes that as long as we’re not damaging the USA's environment (which is a fallacy in of itself), then that makes us "better" people.

During a June 10th, 2008, interview with CNBC, then-candidate Obama said this: I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing. But if we take some steps right now to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly US automakers, then I think ultimately, we can come out of this stronger and have a more efficient energy policy than we do right now.

Aren't you glad that in 2008 Obama took steps to help you people make the adjustment by putting more money into your pockets? Oops, I forget, that was simply more empty rhetoric from the President.

Paralysed man refused driver's licence!

From today's Jamaicia Observer: A paralysed 44 year old man is actually refused the chance to do a driver's test. Can you believe it? He really, really wants to drive his own car but can't because it's against the law for a paralysed person to obtain a licence. Who knew? Worse yet, it's apparently the USA's fault!

The Ron Paul chronicles!

A not so recent attack ad against Ron Paul from the Jon Huntsman campaign portrays Dr. Paul as a kooky conspiracy theorist with a “Twilight Zone” parody. Ask yourself: Can we really afford to have this man as Commander and Chief?
Ron Paul says Michele Bachmann hates Muslims:
"She doesn't like Muslims. She hates Muslims. She wants to go get them." - Ron Paul While other candidates promise to rub your tummy and make it all feel better, Ron Paul is gonna kick you in the balls and tell you to man up.
