Profiling, the old days

From a friend:
Next time, when you hear about the "peaceful religion" of Islam (and some Muslims are, apparently), don't miss the prediction in the Bible which refers to Ishmael (and has extended to his descendants). Then, you can give it more thought. They knew something back then.

In Genesis 16:12, an angel of the Lord is speaking to Hagar (Sarah's handmaiden who gave Abraham Ishmael). The angel says about Ishmael:
"And he shall be a wild ass of a man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man's hand against him, and he shall dwell in the face of all his brethren."
What a prophecy!!!! I guess they didn't mind profiling back then.

It was for you...

for You

why wouldn’t I write poetry about You?
Why did I go this long without uttering words of praise
And awe and gratitude towards You?

All this time, I have written about anger and fear
About men About love
About loves labors lost
Trying to imitate Shakespeare
And others
Trying to imitate myself.

When the authentic thing finally pushed through

 It was for You, God. Always for You.

Obamacare starts to hurt

As of Monday [10/1;12], Medicare will start fining hospitals that have too many patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications. The penalties are part of a broader push under President Barack Obama's health care law to improve quality while also trying to save taxpayers money.

About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates.
New Medicare fines for hospital re-admittance

Oh...and before I forget:

Of the 20 new or higher taxes in Obamacare, below are the 5 worst that will be foisted upon Americans for the first time on January 1, 2013:

The Obamacare Medical Device Tax – a $20 billion tax increase

The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax” – a $13 billion tax increase

The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income – a $123 billion tax increase:  This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income

The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions – a $15.2 billion tax increase

The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike -- an $86.8 billion tax increase

The Perfect Quote About The Obama Presidency

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper by Prager Zeitungon on 4/28/10:
The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.

Guess who was just pardoned by the new president of Egypt?

Sultan Knish
As they ran past a Japanese tourist, she said, one of the men fired into the woman’s face from a range of about 15 inches.

“They made us get down on our knees,” Ms Dousse said. “And then they started shooting. A man who was very heavy fell on me and the lady behind me also covered me … They shot me in the arm and leg, and then they started again shooting those who were still alive in the head.

The gunmen “took all the young women, the girls, and disappeared with them. I don’t know where they went with the women, but they hurt them. We could hear screams of pain,” Dousse said.

“It went on for a long time, an hour or an hour and a half. The terrorists came back again and again; they danced and sang,” she said.

Among the horrors, the marauders cut off the ears and noses of several of their victims. A note praising Islam was found inside one disemboweled body.

The foreign dead included 31 Swiss, 10 Japanese, five Germans, four Britons one a child a Bulgarian, a Colombian and a French citizen. The Japanese victims were four newlywed couples and an elderly couple on their second honeymoon.
The man who ordered that atrocity, Mustafa Hamza was just pardoned by Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt.

How can Obama be leading in the polls?

There is enough evidence, both direct and circumstantial, to provide reasonable answers. Yet, the reasons for Obama's showing in the polls and his transforming plan are kept masked by a media and a public who is seduced by the silver-tongued politician. . .

COMMUNITY

The left talks about community a great deal, but their vision of community is a giant till where everyone is forced to put their money and their bureaucracy decides how many people get to keep what percent of their money and how many get to keep other people's money. There is none of the individual responsibility that makes a community work, only the obligation to follow orders all the time for the greater good. There is no community, only ranks of addicts waiting to be taken care of.

More good news from Obama administration

When the federal government began providing billions of dollars in incentives to push hospitals and physicians to use electronic medical and billing records, the goal was not only to improve efficiency and patient safety, but also to reduce health care costs.

But, in reality, the move to electronic health records may be contributing to billions of dollars in higher costs for Medicare, private insurers and patients by making it easier for hospitals and physicians to bill more for their services, whether or not they provide additional care.

Sad letter from a California property owner to a friend who's lived and worked abroad for several decades


You haven't been to America in many years.

Believe me it has changed.

Every day I see drug addicts and homeless people walking up and down the boulevard.  I have tried to offer them food.  They don't want the food, they want money.  I've actually been spit upon for offering food.  The 7/11 is daily flanked with people who are looking for money.  Again, if you offer them food they turn it down.

The immigrants piss on the street where I live and set off massive commercial fireworks on any given holiday which land in people's yards scaring our animals.  If asked to please move their car from your driveway you get flipped off. If you call the police for unlawful fireworks, you get no assistance.  If you don't have a "No Trespassing" sign on your gate, squatters can walk on your property and pitch a tent.  You have to treat them like a paying tenant.

A friend of mind has a home that she rents.  Her tenants left about 6 months ago and before you know it a squatter moved in.  My friend is not allowed to turn the lights off and the squatter has all the rights of a paying tenant.  She has a lawyer and they have not made any progress.  In fact the city has given the squatter a lawyer for nothing.

I have a guest house that I leased to a woman who was homeless for 12 years.  She dug herself out and started her own feeding program for the homeless at a church. I was so impressed with her that I rented my very lovely guest house to her for 300.00 less a month than I would have rented to someone else.  She has been with me for two years.

I went to Utah for five months leaving her there.  I would have trusted her with my life.  I got back and found that she had had some guest there for a couple of weeks.  This was not our agreement.  I don't mind an occasional "sleep over", but I'm paying all the utilities and I do not want strange people walking on my property.

She got into my face and threatened and told me the "she could have anybody there for 15 days at a time if she wanted".  She then proceeded to scream  "was my house permitted."  She told me I was rude etc, etc, etc.  I didn't say anything.  I now have a lawyer and we are trying to get her out.

She wants $10,000.00.  And, she can get it.  This would also be true even if she was doing something illegal on my property.  She is 60 years old.  If she was 62 I would have to give her 12,000.00,  It goes on and on.  If I had done something inappropriate to her, I could understand her attitude.  But, here is a woman I willingly helped and she pulled "the system" out on me and has not yet called my lawyer back and responded to his offer.  This is what happens when there are no boundaries in the system.

I've also been made to feel guilty for having Social Security (which I paid into), Retirement (which I paid into) Annuity (which I paid for) and owning a home.  I am now living in a trailer in a trailer park because the woman on my property has more rights than I do.  This is what is happening in America.

Also, I am trying to sell my house this year because if I wait until 2013, Obama Care kicks in and my Capital gains from my home (which is not that much) will be taxed 3.8% (for Obama Care) on top of state tax and closing cost.  This is only one story.  IT'S A BRAVE NEW WORLD!

I love America.  I wish I had a wonderful solution that would balance all the hatred.  I wish you could too.  I'm so glad that you don't have to be here to witness America.....it's so sad.

Love you.


QE3 – Pay Attention If You Are in the Real Estate Market

The Daily Bell:
The Fed is now where mortgages go to die. Thousands of mortgages on homes that do not exist or on homes that have more than one "first" mortgage are now going to the Fed to disappear. Thousands of multifamily and commercial mortgages will be bought up as well. As this happens, trillions of dollars that have been amassed offshore will be free to come back into the US to buy up and reposition land, farmland, residential and commercial real estate and other tangibles.

With documents shredded, criminal liabilities extinguished and financial institutions made whole, funds can return without fear of seizure.

QE3 proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that the extent of the fraud was as bad as I said it was. You can count up the bailouts and QE1, QE2, QE3 the numbers speak for themselves. The fraud was indeed in the many trillions of dollars. It was intentional. It was a plan. [Emphasis mine.]

Mortal combat in the White House

Computer World: Questions loom about Obama's cybersecurity plans

As opposition mounts to an executive order, question is whether White House will plow ahead or drop idea...
Those familiar with what's going on in Washington behind the scenes say the recent opposition is giving the White House pause. There are two forces in the White House on the matter, said one source who requested not to be named. One group is rethinking whether the executive [order] is such a good idea, he said. The other faction wants to act much more affirmatively than anybody expects, he said.

"They are in mortal combat," the source said.

Understanding Obama's Pro-Islamist Policy

What must be said...
Endnote: It must also be said--on the eve of the Jewish New Year--that there are people inside and around the Obama administration who consider Israel's very establishment to have been a mistake. These individuals regard Islamism as pliable and useful and in sync with history's "moral arc." Israel, the reborn Jewish state--thriving, against all odds--and Zionism, the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, which successfully solved the problem of Jewish political homelessness, are considered by such officials and advisers as at best anachronisms to be tolerated. At worst, they long for Israel's step-by-step dismantlement, or sudden destruction, and effectively--functionally--aid and make common cause with the enemies of the Jewish people who work night and day to complete Hitler's genocidal project.

Now we have proof that the State Department is scrubbing documents.

Ann Barnhardt: "This government is working consciously and overtly against fundamental human freedom, and has thus forfeited its legitimacy."

Repost: Rendering Unto Caesar (1 of 3)
Posted by Ann Barnhardt - September 11, AD 2012 12:11 PM MST
This was originally penned and posted on November 6, AD 2011. This is interesting because this was the Sunday after MF Global happened. It was still thought at this time that Corzine had stolen *only* a few hundred million dollars - not $1.6 billion, nor had it yet occurred to anyone that NO ONE would be held accountable for any of this. PFG Best hadn't yet happened. The Sentinel Ruling hadn't happened. The ObamaCare abortion and contraception mandates had not yet happened. And this was 10 days before I shut down Barnhardt Capital Management.

My decision has been confirmed as correct so many times over that there is no longer any question associated with it.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, is the hour in which the full and hideous scope of the horror that dares call itself “modern, Western Christianity” is revealed. After announcing my Federal tax strike, I have been overrun with sickening, nauseating email after email telling me that for me to enjoin a tax strike is “immoral”, “unchristian”, “contrary to scripture”, “pointless”, “a waste” and all the rest. To everyone who has sent such an email, and you know who you are, there are not words to express the depth of my disgust. I am ashamed – yes ASHAMED – of every single one of you. Your cowardice, your failure to grasp even the most rudimentary concepts of Christianity, starting first and foremost with the First Commandment, but most especially the shallowness of your discernment, is repellant to behold. Super-fun Rockband church and Pastor Jason, and the Marxist-homosexualist infiltrated Novus Ordo Catholic parishes with Father Liza-Judy and their bee-ess six-minute sermons about ABSOLUTELY NOTHING have cleared the battlefield for satan in a war of attrition that would make William Tecumseh Sherman blush with shame.

And let's not forget that other tool of satan which has sent every other clergyman pecker-down in the dirt to lick the hooves, wet with the liquid manure of political correctness and the running blood of the unborn, of the federal government in utter submission: the 501(c) exemption.
Here's your catechetics and civics lesson for the week.

“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's” is NOT a release from the First Commandment.
 
I had one guy email me and tell me that Jesus will not hold any of us responsible for any of the abortions in this country because we JUST HAVE to pay taxes and we have absolutely no choice in the matter. Bullshit. First, what the hell do you think is happening right now? Boys and girls, you are going to be held to account for sitting by and subsidizing the holocaust of the preborn. This country is being brought down as punishment for the genocide that every one of us is partially responsible for.

Secondly, apparently you all have been brainwashed into believing that the I.R. fricking-S is the most powerful entity in the universe, and that being condemned by the IRS is the worst and most permanent fate in the universe and in the realm of humanity. In other words, YOU IDIOTS WORSHIP THE I.R.S. ABOVE GOD. YOU FEAR THE I.R.S., BUT DO NOT FEAR GOD, HIS JUDGEMENT OR HIS WRATH IN THE SLIGHTEST. And you call yourselves Christian? Really?

Now let's think logically. The words, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's; and render unto the Lord that which is the Lord's” have as a direct corollary the asking of a question. What is that question? Come on. Think. You can do this.

The question is, what rightfully belongs to Caesar and what rightfully belongs to God? The God part is easy. EVERYTHING belongs to God. Uh-oh. Now we have a mathematical conundrum, don't we? If we believe in God, and we believe in the First Commandment, then “Caesar” is truly OWED nothing. We can CONSENT to pay taxes in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity and freedom, but only if those four specific ends are served by our taxes.
 
Let's go through each of the four:

TRUTH:
Barack Obama is a usurper. He is constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of the presidency, and he knows this, the entire Congress knows this, the entire upper-echelon of the military knows this, the entire intelligence community knows this, and the SCOTUS knows this. Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States, who is in a state of open, declared war upon it, its constitution and its people. This is the absence of truth. We are being “led” by a human lie, backed by an entire government of oath-breaking liars. Therefore, the government is illegitimate and has forfeited its licitness.

JUSTICE:
The Rule of Law is effectively dead. From the presence of Obama himself in the White House, to the lawless Department of Justice, to Fast & Furious, to Solyndra, to the unconstitutional “czars” and “executive orders”, to the Federal Reserve, this is a society ruled by a government of men, not laws. When government is ruled by men and not laws, the determining criterion of how government relates to people becomes brute force of arms and violent coercion, and not transcendent truth. We are utterly deprived of justice by the government itself, and thus the federal government has forfeited its legitimacy. (Note: Remember that when this was originally written, the full knowledge and scope of the financial market lawlessness was not yet known. MF Global had happened only six days earlier.)

SOLIDARITY:
The government is inciting both race-centered, age- centered and class-based antagonism and violence. In declaring pre-born children non-human, a genocide has been legally sanctioned that has cost 50 million lives AND COUNTING. ObamaCare is poised to exterminate the elderly by determining that their lives are not worth living. The government is consciously and expressly trying to break down solidarity amongst citizens along race and class lines, and in that action it forfeits its legitimacy.

FREEDOM:
From ObamaCare, to the TSA, to the forced acceptance of sexual perversions, to forced “political correctness”, to the overt support of Sharia law and muslim sedition, to the destruction of the Free Exercise and Equal Protection clauses, this government is working consciously and overtly against fundamental human freedom, and has thus forfeited its legitimacy.

The missing scene that the Clinton's forced ABC & Disney to remove from "The Path to 9/11"

Do you remember that the Clinton's forced an edit before this was aired?

And, keep this comment from Australian Bob Downe on 9/11/06 in mind:
"I can't believe how many have commented and bagged it out without actually seeing it!"
(I can. Liberals are great at censorship.)
Last year [September 10-11, 2006], ABC and Disney appeared to cave to political pressure from Bill Clinton, Sandy Berger, and Democrat leaders in the Senate. As a result, a key scene that was critical of the Clinton administration's mishandling of Osama bin Laden never made it to broadcast television. To this day, Disney refuses to release the movie on DVD.
And, as far as Sandy Berger goes, I consider this to be as great an unsolved mystery as the the Kennedy assassination!!

Or how a cult hero became the new Jim Jones on the eternal search for a "socialist paradise" in the quest for national suicide.

WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL TEA PARTY

Just saw on Facebook: It's a Non-Profit Organization
Welcome to the National Tea Party, a new political party dedicated to the heretofore abandoned principles upon which this country was formed: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Our platform is simple:
  1. No deficit spending. If the federal government doesn’t have the money they cannot beg, borrow, and steal to get it.
  2. An international gold standard or an equivalent. Presently the Federal Reserve can tax every citizen by printing trillions of dollars that are not backed by anything tangible thereby devaluing the currency. Restricting their ability to print money will protect the value of our dollar and greatly reduce the ability of the government to tax citizens without their permission.
  3. Federal and state term limits. Why? Those who are attracted to power are attracted to politics in part because there is life tenure.
  4. True separation of powers. This means the elimination of administrative agencies that act as prosecutor, judge, and jury. Those functions were meant to be handled by the judiciary. Therefore the federal agencies must be eliminated or their judiciary powers removed, and the judiciary must be prevented from legislating from the bench by allegorical readings of state and federal laws.
  5. Removal of the Commerce Clause from the United States Constitution. For too long Congress has abused this clause to regulate everything under the sun. It’s time they went back to being representatives of the people and not “law”makers. Those laws are generally written for the benefit of their corporate constituents and special interests.
  6. Corporate accountability and the elimination of all corporate lobbying. Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and other quasi government agencies will no longer be permitted to buy off politicians. However, private individuals should be allowed to give as much as they desire in keeping with principles of liberty.
  7. An amendment for a flat tax that is non-adjustable. This will allow us to finally get rid of a bloated tax code that was written by corporate lobbyists and special interests.
    If we protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness we will once again be a great nation. Please share these 7 principles with your friends and invite them to join our cause on July 4th at the gates of the White House for a National Tea Party!

The Historical Reality of the Muslim Conquests

Taken together, these accounts (which are primarily based on older accounts—oral and written—tracing back to Muhammad and his successors) provide what was once, and in the Muslim world still is, a famous story: that Allah had perfected religion (Islam) for all humanity; that he commanded his final prophet (Muhammad) and community (Muslims) to spread Islam to the world; and that the latter was/is to accept it either willingly or unwillingly (jihad).

It should be noted that contemporary non-Muslim accounts further validate the facts of the conquests.

Windows on the World...a poignant, small surprise

I was just going through some cookbooks to see what I wanted to have my husband take to the swapmeet. Even though it's mostly electronics (and requires, interestingly, a ham radio license in order to be a seller there), he finds that my old cookbooks are really hot sellers!

In a book published in June, 2001, I just now found a recipe from the restaurant in the World Trade Center (Windows on the World) for "Roasted Wild Turkey with Cornbread-Bacon Dressing".

This book is a collection of recipes from various restaurants, most of which are in the Los Angeles (or Southern California) area except for a few, like this one.

It calls for a 12-14 pound Turkey so my husband, who wants me to save this book because of it's symbolic value, asked if we (me) could make this for Thanksgiving!

I woud try and type it out for you, but it's awfully long and that would probably be a violation of the book's copywright. Oh well.

Sadly, I'll bet that this recipe died with all of the people who were victims on that horrible, fateful day: September 11, 2001.

10 November 2008: PRESCIENCE...or PERSPICACITY?

The night we waved goodbye to America... our last best hope on Earth

by Peter Hitchens (excerpt):
Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

It already has all the signs of such a thing. The newspapers which recorded Obama’s victory have become valuable relics. You may buy Obama picture books and Obama calendars and if there isn’t yet a children’s picture version of his story, there soon will be.

Proper books, recording his sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.

If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves. It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.

He needn’t worry too much. From now on, the rough boys and girls of America’s Democratic Party apparatus, many recycled from Bill Clinton’s stained and crumpled entourage, will crowd round him, to collect the rich spoils of his victory and also tell him what to do, which is what he is used to.

Just look at his sermon by the shores of Lake Michigan. He really did talk about a ‘new dawn’, and a ‘timeless creed’ (which was ‘yes, we can’). He proclaimed that ‘change has come’. He revealed that, despite having edited the Harvard Law Review, he doesn’t know what ‘enormity’ means. He reached depths of oratorical drivel never even plumbed by our own Mr Blair, burbling about putting our hands on the arc of history (or was it the ark of history?) and bending it once more toward the hope of a better day (Don’t try this at home).

I am not making this up. No wonder that awful old hack Jesse Jackson sobbed as he watched. How he must wish he, too, could get away with this sort of stuff.

And it was interesting how the President-elect failed to lift his admiring audience by repeated – but rather hesitant – invocations of the brainless slogan he was forced by his minders to adopt against his will – ‘Yes, we can’. They were supposed to thunder ‘Yes, we can!’ back at him, but they just wouldn’t join in. No wonder. Yes we can what exactly? Go home and keep a close eye on the tax rate, is my advice. He’d have been better off bursting into ‘I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony’ which contains roughly the same message and might have attracted some valuable commercial sponsorship.

Perhaps, being a Chicago crowd, they knew some of the things that 52.5 per cent of America prefers not to know. They know Obama is the obedient servant of one of the most squalid and unshakeable political machines in America. They know that one of his alarmingly close associates, a state-subsidised slum landlord called Tony Rezko, has been convicted on fraud and corruption charges.

They also know the US is just as segregated as it was before Martin Luther King – in schools, streets, neighbourhoods, holidays, even in its TV-watching habits and its choice of fast-food joint. The difference is that it is now done by unspoken agreement rather than by law.

If Mr Obama’s election had threatened any of that, his feel-good white supporters would have scuttled off and voted for John McCain, or practically anyone. But it doesn’t. Mr Obama, thanks mainly to the now-departed grandmother he alternately praised as a saint and denounced as a racial bigot, has the huge advantages of an expensive private education. He did not have to grow up in the badlands of useless schools, shattered families and gangs which are the lot of so many young black men of his generation.

If the nonsensical claims made for this election were true, then every positive discrimination programme aimed at helping black people into jobs they otherwise wouldn’t get should be abandoned forthwith. Nothing of the kind will happen. On the contrary, there will probably be more of them.

And if those who voted for Obama were all proving their anti-racist nobility, that presumably means that those many millions who didn’t vote for him were proving themselves to be hopeless bigots. This is obviously untrue.

Two visions

The battle in this country is, very simply, the battle between two visions of where we should go. One vision depends on growing the government and the other vision depends on slowing that growth down and then trying to reduce the size of government.

The part that's not simple is trying to explain this to people who really aren't interested, but who vote anyway.

I've had countless discussions with people who do not want to talk about WHY they want to re-elect Barack Obama, they just do. Some of them literally do not allow you to say anything at all if it's negative about him (two of them literally did the "la-la" routine to prevent it). This is cult behavior plain and simple. Asking one of them why they didn't like Paul Ryan produced: "Because he's an asshole." This is another version of the "la-la" routine.

There's not a lot of hope in resolving anything with serious discussions in this kind of environment and so our future now rests upon the popularity of a cult hero. If Obama wins, we lose the country as founded. If he doesn't, we have a chance in keeping what our forefathers fought and died for.
And for the support of this declaration, «with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence,» we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, & our sacred Honor.
One problem is that the bigger government types do not like our founding documents and want to somehow change them or make them irrelevant or replace them entirely.

This is completely unacceptable to me and to conservatives everywhere and this is why the Tea Party came into existence in the first place.

This is a battle unto death.

Are you caught in the Facebook Trap?

Catholic writer Elizabeth Scalie nails it in this piece: Idols Come in Many Forms; Facebook Feeds Them
...the insidious trap I discuss in my First Things piece — the trap so many of us at one time or another find ourselves struggling to get out of, where we are caught up in the whirlwind of politics (so much of which is illusory) and into thinking that we must, we must, we must, keep breathlessly posting on Facebook; that the nation’s fate depends upon us not stopping to consider (or to pray, or to even think) but simply remaining in the spin of the storm, until we lose sight of everything, including the humanity of others, or the damage we may be causing that was never our willful intent.
This is scary because I've felt it...I've seen it...and her advice is critical for our bodily health and our souls (comes just in time for a lot of us):
...some of us are simply nourishing our ideologies—holding them close to the heart and feeding them on our stores of distrust and bitterness—and allowing them to steal all of our instincts to charity, to squeeze out mercy. You can see it on social media, most especially on Facebook where respectable, even admirable, people are beginning to lose perspective and attack each other over news stories, and sometimes over simple questions, reasonably asked. Where angry banning won’t do, full-scale attacks are launched in the form of threads full of red-meat, wherein “friends” are invited to feed, so the hatred may grow.

And it is all done in service to a sad illusion that somehow, if we do not post every story that makes us angry or proves our point, if we do not constantly attempt to fix the erroneous thinking of others, this election will fall out of our control. [Emphasis mine.] We must be aggressive unto hysteria in our righteousness, or the other side will win.


OMG: people really ARE disappearing all across America! - UPDATE

KIDNAPPED MARINE SPEAKS OUT AGAINST GOVERNMENT TYRANNY
  • Hundreds of thousands of people across the United States have already been picked up

  • 20,000 in Virginia

  • 20 people disappeared in Brandon Raub's own county before August was even over yet!
What the "F" is going on here???

UPDATE:

New Obama Executive Order Will Nationalize Demonization Of US Veterans As Mentally Ill
This kind of control over citizens by government was practiced by Mao in China, Communist Russia and Nazi-controlled Germany. As following in the footsteps of previous dictators, Obama is proving himself to be the next in a dangerous line of Fascist controllers who will imprison his own military if need be to accomplish his goals set forth for him by the global Elite.
Don't forget: Some of our military would NOT fire on U.S. civilians even if given the order...and some would. Which group is this Executive Order aimed at?

The truth about Paul Ryan

Progressive bloggers and TV personalities are up in arms about Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican National Convention last night. Several of their accusations revolve around Paul Ryan’s own fiscal record, and his description of President Obama’s. I asked my liberal friends on Twitter to send me an itemized list of Ryan’s alleged lies, and they kindly obliged. So far, Ryan appears to have the better of the argument.

GOP Adopts Strongly Pro-Gun Platform

As each party does every four years as part of their national conventions, this week, the Republican Party adopted its platform detailing the general beliefs and policy positions of the party.

Included in the 2012 Republican platform is a strong statement of support for the individual right to keep and bear arms, which goes beyond a generic statement of support for the Second Amendment and includes specific statements on key issues of concern to gun owners.
Here is the text on the Second Amendment included in the platform.
