I have been distracted lately, and my political blog and
writing have been curtailed.Aside from
the uneasy, nauseous feeling that the country is sliding into a financial and
moral abyss that we are powerless to prevent, personal issues have
In the crash of 2008, my wife and I lost most of our
wealth.In 2011 we lost our house and
possessions to an upstairs water leak caused by a counterfeit Chinese toilet nut
that spontaneously broke while we were away.Don’t get me started on that subject.These plastic nuts lack proper phenol content, and have destroyed tens
of thousands of homes in the US so far.They are ticking time-bombs in perhaps millions of other homes.I’ve written previously about the insidious
dangers of Chinese counterfeiting.
All is well today, however.We have clawed our way back up financially, and the forced downsizing of
our lives has provided some unforeseen solace to us.Moving back up Maslow’s hierarchy has allowed
me to ruminate about more esoteric topics, such as whether or not I am a homophobic
I admit that I find physical acts of homosexual sex
repulsive.I am repulsed by some other
sexual proclivities, as well.I am also
repulsed by someone who eats live worms in front of me.That said, I want to categorically deny that
I am a worm-eating bigot.Worm-eaters
are great people.They are intelligent,
witty, creative, and fun to talk to at cocktail parties.I just don’t want them eating their favorite
food in front of me and demanding that live worms be put on all the restaurant
menus in town as a civil rights issue.Does that make me a bad person?
Homophobic bigots may exist, but I don’t believe I am one of
them.Bigotry only applies to hatred of humans,
not behaviors. Homosexuality is a sexual
proclivity, it is not a human being. No homosexual gene has been
discovered, and many studies show that it is likely a proclivity developed in
early childhood, as the time when most of our mores and beliefs get hard-wired
into our brains.
Universal legal acceptance of “gay marriage” appears
inevitable.It’s a component of that
moral abyss we are sliding into.The Constitutional
arguments against it are weak.“Heterosexual marriage” is not specifically protected.The Framers never considered the possibility
that marriage could be defined in any other way.On the other hand, “Life, Liberty, and the
pursuit of Happiness” are espoused in our Declaration of Independence, which
supports the gay position.
As conservatives, the primary argument we make is a moral
one, i.e., the “sanctity” of marriage.Marriage is one of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church, also
known as Holy Matrimony.It “sanctifies”
the relationship between a man and a woman.Matrimony is derived from the Latin māter,
or mother.In other words, the purpose
of matrimony is to create mothers and produce children.
All of this falls on the deaf ears of our contemporary
secular society.Morality is not a credible
argument.It is derided and spat upon.To the progressive, neither morality nor
human rights are endowed by our Creator.They are defined as needed by civil forces, and are situational and
Once marriage is no longer defined as the sacred bond
between a man and a woman, it no longer exists.All marriages become civil unions, and the moral component
disappears.This is the Pandora’s Box of
societal deconstruction that will be opened.
Have you seen those little blue and yellow “equal” sign
stickers on car bumpers?That symbol is
a call for homosexual equality.However,
the goal of gay marriage is not human equality or even legal equality.Those can be achieved through civil unions and
small adjustments in existing laws. That
is not what they are pursuing.That
little equal sign sticker means moral
equality.It’s amazingly ironic that
they desire exactly what they deride.The
ultimate irony is that once they achieve it, it will no longer exist.
A released State Department e-mail reveals that despite pleas from the US embassy in Lybia, additional security for the anniversary of 9-11 was denied by the Obama administration. The only thing worse than the monumental incompetence and maliciousness of Obama's governance is his pathetically transparent attempts to cover up the incompetent actions and malicious intent with in-your-face blatant lies to the American public. The only thing preventing public outrage is the refusal of a co-conspiritorial Ruling Class Media to report anything that might be negative to Obama.
This is beginning to change, however. After Obama's disasterous debate debacle, support among his syncophantic supporters is starting to erode. The media is waking up to the fact that they have been thoroughly and obviously in the tank for a complete loser. The evidence: A few weeks ago, you never would have heard a peep about this story. Today, it was broken by ABC News. The Obama firewall is breaking down.
So says RedOrbit. Read the facts here. The effects of global cooling will be much worse than warming could ever be. Like having enough food to survive. Perhaps our only hope is to introduce massively greater amounts of carbon dioxide (that evil deadly gas that supports plant life, and thus all life on Earth) into the atmosphere to create a greenhouse effect, keeping the planet warm and protecting our food supply.
These chilling words were not spoken by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. They are the words of our "Christian" President, Barack Hussein Obama, delivered to the UN General Assembly. Read the American Thinker article, "Read this While You Can".
We are in deep trouble when the same Ruling Class that praises "Piss Christ" will imprison someone who makes an amateur You Tube video that criticizes Muslims. Add in a State Propaganda-Stream Media which will ignore scandal after scandal after abuse of govenmental power in order to get the Radical-In Chief reelected, and we are screwed.
A former member of the Muslim Brotherhood claims that the "Innocence of Muslims" film trailer that supposedly caused hundreds of thousands of angry Islamists to simultaneously riot in a dozen Islamic countries was in fact a "false flag" operation orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood itself.
Walid Shoebat, a former terrorist sympathizer, now a self-described "peace activist" accuses the filmmakers of using false identities and religious backgrounds to make it appear that the film was produced by anti-Muslim Coptic Christians. The filmmakers, he claims, are actually Muslim drug dealers who were working in coordination with the Brotherhood to produce the exact results we are now witnessing:
Political upheaval in the Mideast, subverting any attempts at democracy. Continued anger and violence against Christians and Jews. Weakening US influence in the area. Destroying our First Amendment right of free speech to silence Americans, and replacing it with a global Anti-Blasphemy law as the beginning of a movement toward global Sharia law.
Read Mr. Shoebat's shocking article here. James Simpson puts it all together in his article in "Accuracy in Media".

The US economy did not go south until after 2010, with a Democrat-controlled House and Senate. Bush didn't help the situation, but what would Obama have done differently? Obama has never provided a coherent answer to this question. Obviously, the Bush tax cuts were not responsible for this mess, otherwise why would Obama say he wants to extend them, at least for 98% of the population?
Democrats controlled both houses of Congress for the last two years of Bush's administration. Why didn't they stop him from over-spending, if that was the right thing to do in their minds? Whenever excessive government spending under Obama is raised as an issue, the retort is that Bush did it as well. The truth is that Bush could not have done this on his own. He merely (and unfortunately) allowed the Democrat Congress to do it. Yes, the Medicare prescription drug expansion was his idea, but many Democrats argued that it didn't go far enough.
So the question is, if the Democrats really have the solutions to save the economy, did they purposely destroy it to get Obama elected or are they perpetually inept? And what will Obama do with the next mess he inherits if he is re-elected? Questions to pose to your liberal friends and family...
The first amendment to the Constitution protects religion from government control. Obama and his minions believe it protects atheists from being offended by the celebration of the birth of Christ and other Christian beliefs. Thank God the Catholic Church has finally awoken from the evil progressive siren song and declared war on the Obama administration for attempting to force the Church's institutions to accept the mass murder of pre-born human beings or be shut down. It is finally clear that Obama is the true spawn of Alinsky's Lucifer.

All that I am hearing from the incessant drone of the progressive mainstream media today is how the Tea Party and their representatives in Congress are responsible for bringing down the country. They’re terrorists. They have singlehandedly caused the stock market crash and the downgrading of our national credit rating. All because they wouldn’t let Obama and the Democrats tax those evil rich people and continue spending.
Heck, most of the “rich” people I know are progressives who are repeating the Democrat talking points. What’s wrong with taking a little more of my income, they ask? They don’t seem to mind. They have plenty of savings to rely on, so what’s the harm?
In our oddly rational conservative minds, we know the answer. It will ultimately hurt the economy. Jobs will not be created, they will be destroyed. The expected revenue will not materialize as the rich will use the available tax avoidance strategies. And, it will inevitably prevent members of the middle class from moving into the realm of the wealthy.
What conservatives and the Tea Party are missing is the fact that this is a strategic, long-term struggle. There are fifteen months until the next election. This next election is not just another run-of-the-mill political event. This election will determine the ultimate direction of our country for the next century. If you don’t understand that, you are one of the vast legions of the clueless, which unfortunately makes up the majority of the American electorate.
As a conservative and a Tea Party supporter, I believe we are destroying ourselves by doing what we believe is best for the nation we love. We are fighting liberal lemmings and preventing them from jumping off the cliff. Meanwhile, the lemmings are blaming us for standing in the way of progress. And the media is making this a convincing argument.
I know it goes against everything we believe, it damages the nation and violates our core values…but we must step aside and let the Democrat party commit suicide without our interference. At least for the next several months.
Willy Wonka was brilliantly portrayed by Gene Wilder in the movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. He protested in a mockingly soft voice, “Wait…Don’t …Stop…” as the selfish, undisciplined kids ran wild and attempted to destroy his factory, knowing that there was no reasoning with them or their ignorant parents, and that they would soon receive their just rewards. Similarly, conservatives need to voice their concerns with the liberal Democrat agenda, and then step out of the way.
Any consequences that occur over the next year can hopefully be reversed or at least mitigated with the appropriate people in office in 2013. They will never be reversed, however, if the “mainstream” media successfully convinces the majority of the electorate that Republicans and the Tea Party are at fault for their misery, rather than the party that has been in control of the majority of the government and the economy for the past six years.
I believe it is this contemporary progressive news media that is primarily responsible for the skewed political landscape we face. Most Americans don’t question its bias, and they listen to the recycled Democrat talking points it delivers as gospel truth. And since the liberal news editors who head the media outlets are given sole discretion over what news to release, the conservative side of the story is never heard by most of America.
So I am beseeching you conservatives, Republicans, and Tea Partiers…Fight your instincts. Do not resist the Democrat agenda. Don’t even compromise. Let them have their way for the next fifteen months. There is no possibility that they can reverse the course of the nation’s economy in that time with their destructive policies.
We will all suffer through the effects of these misguided policies, but at some point it will end. It will end when it becomes painfully clear to the majority of Americans that Democrats retain full responsibility for this incredible disaster they have imposed on all of us. If we do not do this, the misery will continually worsen well past our children’s lifetimes. America as we have known it will no longer exist.
It is incredibly ironic, but the only way to save our nation is to let it be destroyed, at least in the short term.
Captain America is a spectacular, patriotism-inspiring movie that you’re sure to love, unless you are an America-hating member of the evil army of Hydra. Or a progressive, take your pick.
Hollywood critics have given the movie a lukewarm reception, calling it “simplistic” (Hollywood Reporter), “cliché” (Filmcritic.com), and “subversive” (Boston Globe). It’s not surprising that the liberal Hollywood literati turn up their collective noses at it. The Boston Globe compares it negatively to the anti-war movies “Coming Home” and “Born on the Fourth of July”.
In Progresso-world, our country is despotic, Jane Fonda is America’s Sweetheart, and Oliver Stone is our national Bard.
In truth, they hate it because it is an allegory for American exceptionalism. Have you noticed that all of the iconic superheroes are Americans? They make us feel good because they represent all that is positive about our country. (OK, Thor is an undocumented worker from Asgard. There are a lot of parallels between Asgard and America, however. Especially when the evil Loki, masquerading as a purveyor of hope and change, takes the throne.)
America is the most exceptional nation in human history, based on its belief in the innate strength and wisdom of the individual, its thirst for freedom and justice, and its power to defend itself and others from forces of evil. America is the superhero of nations.
Captain America the movie expresses this concept purely and perfectly, without a hint of liberal snarkiness or self-loathing. It thrills and inspires, with no obligatory depravity, gratuitous sex, or stomach-churning violence. Marvel Studios has created a masterful and uniquely American classic.
Marvel has also atoned for its grotesque mischaracterization of the Tea Party as bigoted and evil in its infamous Captain America #602. Issued in early 2010, it coincided very closely with the Disney acquisition of Marvel. Perhaps Disney got the message from the negative outcry of its largest customer base, conservatives.
The Red Skull is the embodiment of evil, along with his minions in Media Matters, er, I mean Hydra. If you close your eyes during the climactic scene when Red says, in his Germanic accent, “I have seen the future…There are no flags!”, you can almost visualize a young George Soros in glorious 3-D. Brandishing his red, white, and blue shield, Cap speaks for America when he retorts, “Not in my future!”
