Good Law Bidding People My @$$

I am so tired of hearing it. The constant whining of groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Council of La Raza (“The Race” now if that isn’t a racist name for an organization what is?) and so many other left-wing organizations, as they defend illegal aliens as being generally good, law abiding people, who are only trying to provide a better life for their families and themselves. And it sickens me when these groups demanding that these so called “good people” be treated with respect and given citizenship, or at least legal residency status.

I have said it before and I will continue to say it again and again until those who are in power finally come to grips with the truth.

Illegal aliens are not generally good, otherwise law abiding people. They are invaders, lawbreakers and criminals!

They sneak into and remain in this country in direct defiance of our emigration laws. Then they use forged, stolen or otherwise illegally acquired documents to…

* Create false identities
* Obtain jobs they have no right too
* Unlawfully drive automobiles,
* Fraudulently create bank accounts,
* Dishonestly acquire credit cards, loans and mortgages,
* And (far too often) to illicitly vote in our elections.

The recent events involving the home of Lou Dobbs of CNN only serve to amplify the need to deal with the problem.

These invaders, lawbreakers and criminals need to be rounded up, loaded into the back of a large cargo plain, and drop off over the capitol of their home country. And just to keep the process as humanitarian as possible, if they can afford a parachute, we should sell them one.

As for the people and groups that are providing aid and comfort to illegal aliens, they should be treated like the traitorous violators of our sovereignty and laws that they are.

Enough said.

A Time for Choosing

While listening to the Rush Limbaugh show today, I was reminded that this week marks the 45th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s A Time for Choosing” speech, which he made on a number of occasions, during the 1964 U.S. presidential election campaign, on behalf of Republican candidate Barry Goldwater.

It was this speech that established Mr. Reagan, in the minds of many, as a living personification of the conservative viewpoint. Not surprisingly, his words are as fitting and important today as they were the first time he spoke them.

Prize Rooster

The following link is to a short piece that was sent by someone to Caroline Glick, which she then posted on her Blog:

Apropos Nobel Peace Prize

It is an amusing tale, a parable if you will, of a rooster that is awarded for his ability to sneak up behind unsuspecting hens, and have his way with them.

I think you will recognize the parallels to recent events.

Teachers Need To Learn Just Who Is In Charge

A few days ago, in response to a facebook survey question (“Should we put God back In schools?”) a friend of mine answered “Yes” (as did I) and went on to post the following comment:

“Take prayer out, tell kids their ancestors were chimpanzees, provide them with condoms and stress feeling over thinking and sensitivity over excellence and what do you get? Drugs, teen pregnancy, school shootings, low test scores, illiteracy, and every other social ill we see today.”

Although I could not see the response to his comments left by one particular liberal extremist (she had barred me because of a prior discussion in which I crushed her false liberal assertions), it was quite obvious from what my friend had written back, that she had taken offense at his words and that she was spewing all the typical liberal diatribes in defense of the public schools and teachers. Thing like…

* Most teachers are dedicated but all teachers poorly paid professionals.
* Public schools cannot pick and choose who they will and will not take.
* Conservatives are to blame for any and all of the failing that might exist in the public schools.
* Etcetera and so on and blah, blah, blah…

I infer from what my friend wrote in his responses that this particular liberal is a public school teacher (forgive us LORD GOD). I am sure most of you reading this have had to deal with a bad teacher or three over the years, and have heard the kinds of excuses they always used to explain away their inability to do the job they are paid to do.

Although my friend was doing a fine job of correcting her typical fact deficient liberal claims; I had to throw in my two cents. At his recommendation, I am posting my comments below.

Now please understand that I know that there are good teachers out there. I had three or four of them out of the forty plus teachers that I had over my K-12 school years . So if you are one of those few public school teachers, who actually is dedicated to education rather than indoctrination, and who has rightly refused to teach the likes of…
* Revisionist, blame America first, history,
* That evolution is the only scientifically sound theory of origins,
* That socialism is a good thing, or at least not a bad thing,
* That GOD has no place in the public forum,
* That there are few if any moral absolutes
* Unfounded self esteem rather than actual hard work and accomplishment,
* Other such nonsense,
and you have resisted and/or fought your union’s efforts to bankrupt the tax payers in this country, then know that the following was not intended as an attack on you. It is aimed squarely at those supporters and puppets of the liberal teacher's union and their anti-American, anti-Christian policies.

* * * * * * * * * *

Hi John, I suspect I know who you are debating, since her comments do not appear on my page. She has already demonstrated that she cannot defend her liberal positions, and proven herself to be too cowardly to face one on one with anyone who knows what they are talking about, and has the courage and ability to fight and defeat her liberal agenda.

The simple fact is that far too many teachers and all of their unions have little or no interest in actually educating OUR children or helping them learn how to think. They are in fact dedicated sole to indoctrinating our children with their left wing, anti-GOD, anti-American propaganda, and telling them what to think. They see their classrooms as the new pulpits from which they proclaim their way as the one true way. They believe that it is their job to repair the damage done by parental teachings about right and wrong, good and evil, truth and justice. The are the willing servants of a spirit of anti-Christ which is trying to drag this, the greatest nation that GOD has ever raised up in the history of the world, to the same level of decay and failure that Europe has fallen into since abandoning its Christian roots.

What we need is a parental uprising. Teachers need to be taught that they are not our superiors, they are our employees. We are their employers, and they keep their jobs by our consent, not because their unions say they do. “We the people” are in charge of what they will and will not teach. They have no academic freedom to do whatever they want to do. It is the parents and the parents alone who have the right to decide what should and should not be taught, what is and what is not right and good for their children to do, see and learn at any point in the child’s schooling.

Responsibility for education should and must be returned to the local communities. The state should be permitted (only the most) restricted input into the process, and only by the consent of the parents. And the federal government should be allowed no input what so ever.

It is long past time for the American people in general, and parents in particular, to rise up and make it loud and clear to the elitist left, and anyone else who thinks they know better than we do, that it is “We the people” who are in charge, and that elected office holders, appointed bureaucrats, and all of their hirelings (and that includes teachers) are our servants, they are not our masters, and they had better start doing what “We the people” tell them to do.

Playing the Fear Card Again

The leftists of the world have always bombarded the people of the world with warnings of impending doom and destruction. This weekend, another left wing warning was issued, this time by Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the British Labour Party. He warned in a speech, that the nations of the world had "fewer than fifty days" to reach an agreement on how to save our planet from the devastating effects of “man-made climate change”. According to Brown, if the nations fail to do so, the resulting impact of our human civilization upon the Earth will be “greater than the impact of both world wars and the Great Depression combined”.

See: PM warns of climate 'catastrophe'
And: 50 days till the end of the world!

Give me a break! What is up with all this fear mongering?
How much more ridiculous can liberal claims get?

I guess I am not really surprised. I mean this kind of foolish proclamation is not something new. In fact scare tactics like the supposedly sad state of our medical care systems, and the “global warming hoax” the PM is using, have been utilized by leftist for as long as I can remember. And I have a pretty good memory. They throw the fear card on the table whenever they want to make a power grab. And they always want to make a power grab.

They do so because if they can keep the people afraid, they will be more easily convinced to allow, and in fact likely to demand, that something, anything, be done to remove the cause of the fear. In theory, this enables liberals to do virtually anything they want to do, under the guise of course, of dealing with the cause of the people’s fear. And it won’t matter how unnecessary or, as is more commonly true, harmful what the liberals intend to do will probably be in the long run. Liberals have learned all too well that fear is a wild card that can and should enable them to play their hand boldly; and by doing so, steal our country and our freedoms from us, with a minimum of resistance.

However, the theory isn't perfect, and the liberals do face some very real problems that they have never really been able to overcome when playing their fear cards. What are those problems? They are the Christians who actually know and believe the word of GOD. You see, Biblically literate Christians understand something that liberals are incapable of clearly seeing, let alone understanding. And just what is it that these Christians understanding, that liberals do not and cannot understand? Simply this…

We know that fear is the opposite of faith, and we know that GOD is with us always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). Therefore we really do not have anything to fear. We also know that human beings, and the things that human beings do, or do not do, are not the final determiner of what will and will not happen on this planet, especially not when, or how this world will come to its eventual end.

Ultimately, the history and destiny of this planet rests sole in the hands of our Father GOD. HE and HE alone can and will decide what is going to happen in, and too, this world. The day and the hour is not, and cannot be, known by any human being on this planet. (Matthew 25:13) Until GOD decides that it is time for it all to end, there is nothing that we mere humans can do that will destroy this planet, or the life that lives upon it. And when GOD says that this world’s time is up, there will be nothing that we can do that can or will prevent the end from happening.

So if you know people who are afraid because of something said by some liberal, who is playing one of their many fear cards, remind them who it is that is actually in charge of this world. If they do not know our LORD, then introduce them to HIM.

If they remain a bit nervous, then remind them that liberals have been WRONG about virtually, if not absolutely, every terrible thing that they have warned us would happen unless we allow them to take control of this thing, or that thing, or better yet, everything.

For example, remind them how when Jimmy (the worthless one) Carter was running for his second term in office, liberals tried using several fear cards to prevent Ronald Reagan from defeating their peanut brained pride and joy. I personally had more than one liberal tell me that “if Ronald Reagan gets elected, our cities will be torn apart by race riots” and that “a Reagan presidency would most assuredly result in a nuclear war erupting between the United States and the Soviet Union, thus bringing about the end of the world.

Fortunately the liberal fear tactics did not work and (Thank you GOD) Ronald Reagan was elected. And guess what happened, or more to the point what didn’t happen. The predicted riots in the streets did not happen. Nor did the world end in a nuclear war between the US and the USSR. Instead President Reagan, with the help of people like Margret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II, brought the evil soviet empire to the point of its inevitable and unstoppable collapse. And he accomplished it without firing a single shot.

Or for another example tell them about the predictions of such intellectual giants as actor Ted Danson. Back in 1988 Danson made an ominous proclamation. He said that we had only ten years to save our planet’s oceans or it would be too late. Hmmmm… Using a little simple arithmetic, it is quite easy to see that twenty years have passed since Mr. Danson originally made this dire warning, and as far as I can see, the oceans are still there, and they seem to still be fairly well.

The simple truth is that, as are our day to day lives, as with all things in Heaven and on Earth, the end of the world is in GOD’s hands. So ignore the fear mongers, take a deep breath, trust in GOD and praise HIM. (Psalms 46:10)

Scripture references:

* Matthew 28:20 - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, Lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
* Matthew 25:13 - Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
* Psalms 46:10 - Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Appropriate Spending

See: The Growing Air Power Fighter Gap: Implications for U.S. National Security
* PDF version

My stepson serves aboard one of our nations great aircraft carriers. Thanks to him; I know a tiny bit about what our current air and sea power are capable of doing. I also know how important it is for the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives to authorize the funding needed to "provide for the common defense". This is after all the single most important responsibility that our government has.

Unfortunately the party currently in power has not only failed us in this respect, it has actively worked in opposition to that responsibility. They have cut needed funding for needed equipment, and canceled new weapons and systems that would not only better enable our best and brightest (the young men and women who bravely and selflessly serve in our armed forces) to carry out the necessary task that we ask them to do (to protect and defend this country and the values and liberties that we hold dear), but to do so with a greater chance of coming home safe and sound.

"We the people" need to hold them to account for this. We need to insist that they do an about-face. We need to demand that our taxes no longer be wasted on social programs that not only do not, can not and will not help, but will in fact do more harm than good. We need to order them (they are after all supposed to be our servants, not our masters) to redirect those tax dollars toward strengthening our military capability, and defeating the enemies of this, the greatest nation that GOD has ever raised up in the history of the world.

Right, Call, Email, Give them their new marching orders!

What a Sad Sad Joke

It seems that a group of his European worshipers have announced that they are awarding their savior (B.O.) the Nobel Peace Prize for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. This news would have had me rolling on the floor in laughter; if it wasn’t for the fact that it only goes to prove just how far the state of the world has degenerated.

So just what has B.O. done to earn this award?

Well let’s see, he has…
1) Apologized to the world for the fact that they have been unable to achieve the greatness that (by GOD's grace and blessing) the United States of America has been able to achieve.
2) Instituted programs that will burden the American people with an un-repayable debt for generations to come.
3) Been working to institue additional programs, taxes and laws that will further burden the American people, limit or eliminate their GOD given liberties and punish them for their exceptional achievements.
4) Taken steps to bring the United States of America more in line with, and under the direct influence and (if possible) control of failed European policies and policy makers.
5) Cut programs and eliminated systems that would help insure the security of the United States of America, and her citizens.
6) Emboldened the enemies of the United States of America, and her citizens, with soft words and a refusal to take the necessary military measure to defeat those enemies and destroy their abilities to do us harm.

So I guess it is not a real surprise that a bunch of euro-weenies would want to give their messiah this once meaningful award. But it is sad. Very very sad.

In response to Luigi B

The following is in response to a comment left by Luigi B regarding the video of David W. Hedrick that I posted yesterday.

* * * * * * * * * * *
Luigi B said...
> Actually, the Nazis weren't socialists. They were fascists.

> I think he needs to look up the definition of Socialist
> (and so do you) before comparing it to Nazism.
> By the way, Fascists are considered right wingers.

Greetings Luigi B,

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

I’m sorry, but you are only half right. The NAZIs were indeed fascist, but fascism is simple one end (the right end if you prefer) of the socialist spectrum. Communism would then be on the left end of the socialist spectrum.

The word NAZI refers to “National Socialism” (German: Nationalsozialismus), and refers to ideology and practices of the “National SOCIALIST German Workers' Party”.

As for the NAZIs being considered to be being on the right end of the overall political spectrum, this is an erroneous representation, based on an misguided attempt to place democracy somewhere between communism and fascism.

If you really want to try to do this, you would be better off replacing the straight line with an incomplete circle open at the bottom. Communism could then be placed on the bottom of the circle, on the left side of the opening, democracy could be placed on the top of the circle, directly opposite the opening, and fascism could then be placed on the bottom of the circle, but on the right side of the opening. This would better represent the concept you make reference to, as well as showing that communism and fascism are really just two sides of an empty ideology, I.E. socialism.

A more accurate representation of the political spectrum would position communism, fascism, and other forms of totalitarian governments, on one side of the spectrum (lets call it the left side), democracies and republics somewhere near the center, and absolute anarchy on the opposite side (lets call it the right side).

See the video below for a more complete explanation of this representaion.

Marine Vet, David W. Hedrick nails Congressman Brian Baird

The clip bellow is a good example of a real American confronting a left-wing socialist henchman of B.O.

David W. Hedrick, is a Marine Corps vet who challenged Washington Democratic Congressman Brian Baird at an August 18th town hall meeting. You will absolutely love what this American has to say.

Now he is running against that same Congressman Baird for the 3rd Congressional district seat. I suspect he could use our help and support. Please visit his website; and while you are there, be sure to check out the other video and audio clips.

Random Thoughts 2

The next time you hear some misguides individual say that “Left is right and right is wrong”, look them straight in the eye and say:

Like all typical liberals, you look at the world though a mirror so that, while you observe what’s going on, you can also admire your own reflection, and how insightful and compassionate you think you are. However, it never dawns on you that the world as you see it in that mirror, at is backwards.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The scriptures teach us that “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men”. Romans Chapter 12:18

With that as our guide, Americans have typically demonstrated that they are willing to live in peace with anyone who will let us do so. But those who refuse to live at peace with us and our friends; must understand that there are no limits on how far we can or will go to defeat them.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

It is better to be called a cowboy by the appeasers and pacifist on the left, than it is to kowtow and bow to the enemies of this country, and to those who wish to take away our rights and freedoms. So when they call you a cowboy, tell them you will wear the label with pride.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The next time some liberal tells you that it is wrong to kill to remain free, tell them that it is far more wrong to surrender to remain at peace.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Someone Actually Understands

It is really too bad that B.O. and his henchmen in the house and senate seem to be unable to comprehend the simple truth expressed, by Representative Ted Poe, in this clip.

Liberal Interpretations #1

This is the first of what I hope to be several pieces that I intend to write and post in an attempt to correct as many liberal misrepresentations and misapplications of scripture as I can. This first post is in response to a comment I read a short while back.

The two most important rules that I ever learned about Bible study are:

#1: A proof text, out of context, is a pretext.
#2: Let the Bible interpret itself

In other words, individual passages of scripture must be understood within its particular context, and within the context of the rest of the scriptures. These are not some esoteric principles, known and used by only the most deep thinking seminary trained individuals. They are simple common sense rules, and by following them it is possible to avoid misunderstanding and/or misapplying the scriptures.

So why is it that I all too often, I hear some liberal pull a passage completely out of context to prove some outrageous claims like “Jesus would be considered a liberal by today’s standards”, or “the Bible teaches liberalism and/or socialism", or "the Bible preaches against conservatism and/or capitalism” or some other such nonsense .

* Side Note: Interestingly, these same liberals will often scream bloody murder whenever a conservative references the Bible for any reason.

Just a week or two ago, I read a comment from a man who claimed that Matthew 25:41-46 says that conservative would be cast into hell (because they oppose the socialist agenda of B.O.) and that only liberals would go to heaven. However, if you look up those versus and read them for yourself, you will not recognize his interpretation of them. To make the point even more clear, read the entire passage, starting from Matthew 25:31 and ending with Matthew 25:46.

* NOTE: To make this easier I will append the referenced verses at the end of this post.

The passage does not say that those who supported the government taking of money, goods or property without the rightful owners consent, and redistributing a portion of them to those who are “in need” will be welcomed into Heaven. Nor does it say that those who opposed the government enforced “redistribution of the wealth” will be cast into Hell.

What is does say is that Jesus will set the sheep (those who have accepted his sacrifice and gift of salvation) on his right and the goats (those who did not accept his sacrifice and gift) on his left.

* Side Note: I have always found it interesting that liberals are proud of being on the political left, while they bash conservatives for being on the right. This may be of no Biblical significance, but it is interesting all the same.

He then says to those on his right that they are blessed by His Father, and are to enter into His Father's Kingdom. He reminds them that when they took in the homeless, fed the hungry, cared for the sick, and clothed the naked, amongst the least of His brethren, they were in fact doing so to Him.

Next He tells the goats to depart into the everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels, and tell them that they did nothing for Him because they did not take in the homeless, feed the hungry, care for the sick or cloth the naked, amongst His brethren.

Now consider the oft promulgated proposal that liberals are more charitable and more willing to care for and do something about the needs of the poor and downtrodden. This lie, is roundly and soundly disproved by the facts. Let me recommend a good book on the subject titled:

"Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism"
By Arthur Brooks, a professor at Syracuse University

The facts show that conservatives are far more likely to open their own homes, give of their own time and reach into their own pockets to help those in need. They are more likely to take in the homeless, feed the hungry, and take care of the sick, and cloth the naked, and give blood for that matter.

Liberals on the other hand are more likely to rely on the government to reach into the pockets of others, via fees, fines and taxes, to pay for government programs that have historically proven to be inefficient at best, and more often than not, detrimental to those they supposedly created to help.

In closing I want to say that I am in no way claiming that all this proves that liberals are all destined for Hell, or that conservatives deserve to go to Heaven. The point is that no GOD fearing, Bible believing Christian would make that kind of stupid blanket statement. The fact is that GOD will make the decision of who goes where based on who has repented of their sins and excepted Jesus Christ as their Savior, and who has not. I am so sick and tired of the attempts of liberals, many of whom do not have a sincere respect for the Bible, Jesus Christ or GOD the Father, to distort and twist the Word of GOD so as to mislead the Biblically illiterate into thinking that they (the liberals) are the only ones who care about those in need.

Appendix A - Matthew 25:

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Random Thoughts

I thought I would post a few of the comments, slogans and quotes etc. (some mine, some from others) that have become my favorites over the years.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

A Progressive is a liberal who has learned not to admit it
A Liberal is a socialist who knows better than to admit it
A Socialist is a communist who hides his gun, until he has gotten yours away from you

And while we are on the subject,

The only real difference between a fascist and a communist is that a fascist doesn’t bother with the pretense of caring for the common man. In fact the fascist doesn’t really care if you know that he is in it primarily for the money and the power.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Let's say that you have two cows.
* Under socialism, the government will take at least one, give it to one of your more worthy neighbors and, if you do what you’re told, might let you keep the other.
* Under communism, the government will take both cows and, if you do what you’re told, might give you some spoiled milk.
* Under fascism, the government will take both cows and, if you do what you’re told, will sell you a little bit of milk.

* Under Capitalism, you can sell one cow, buy a bull, build a herd and work to vote out any politician who tries to tell you what to do.

The three best examples of socialism’s grand history of compassion for the common man are:
1) The USSR - Union of Soviet SOCIALIST “Republics” – Murdered over 60 million people, with Stalin alone responsible for killing over 20 million.
2) The NAZI - National SOCIALIST German Workers' Party – Murdered at least 11 million people, the largest portion of them (6 million) being Jews.
3) Communist Red China - The “Peoples Republic” of China - Has so far murdered over 35 million of its citizens.

I am not homophobic. Fear of the practitioners homosexuality has never even entered my thought process. Gays and lesbians do not scare me in any way shape or form.

However I am deitiphobic; as scripture teaches me to be.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:

but rather fear God who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell”.

Those on the left often like to claim; that the people who have entered this country without permission or invitation are generally good law-biding individuals who are only seeking a better life.

Hmmmmmm, let’s see...

They sneak into, and remain in, this country, all the while ignoring and in direct violation of our emigration laws. They use forged, stolen or otherwise illegally acquired documents to get jobs, to illegally drive, to fraudulently create bank accounts, to fraudulently acquire credit cards, loans and mortgages, and far too often, to illegally vote in our elections. That does not sound like good law-biding individuals to me.

The truth is not that illegal immigrants do jobs that Americans will not do. The truth is that they do those jobs for wages that Americans are not willing to put up with.
