Tracing Our Decent in Depravity

But I think all of this can be traced back to God being shunned, to God being removed from people's lives, to there being no God or false gods or what have you.

He's right.

Moral values? "Ah, that could be explained away. Yeah, you can explain moral values. That's just the opiate of the masses. That's just a bunch of irrelevant people trying to tell themselves they're good people. Morality? Morality, that's for the great unwashed. We intellectuals, we members of the ruling class, we understand (haughty laughing) what a joke morality is," and yet the people that are heralded as the Wizards of Smart -- the unifiers, the people who are gonna save the country and save us -- are in the process of destroying it. Some people do think that it's being done purposefully, and it's a hard thing to tell 'em it's not 'cause the evidence is incontrovertible. The worst thing that you can be in society today is judgmental. That's why people like us are so hated, folks. The worst thing you can be is judgmental and right.

Exactly, You are the worst person in the world if you say it's not OK to do anything you want, that there are laws governing behavior just as there are laws governing the universe. You break the laws bad things begin happening. Laws governing human behavior are not usually as obvious as gravity but they have a cumulative effect. Unfortunately, people rarely admit that the problems they find themselves drowning in can usually be traced back to their past choices.

Sovereign Citizens


Another Stolen House Raided; 5 More Sovereign Citizens Sought

The suspects call themselves sovereign citizens. They are anti-government extremists who refuse to answer to state or local authority. The members often refuse to pay taxes or register their vehicles, authorities said. Some told Fleischer that their homes are considered sovereign land.

So lets give them a sovereign cell in a sovereign prison.

Please, Please, Please Let Us Go Back To 100% Gas


Major Newspapers Urge end to Ethanol Subsidy by Alan Caruba

Jimmy Carter's belief that ethanol could replace or reduce dependence on foreign oil imports and reduce greenhouse gas emissions was totally bogus. Nothing about converting corn to fuel makes any sense at all.

If Jimmy Carter believes it, it can't be good.

That's Believable

The Stream of Blood


How Smart Are We? by Thomas Sowell

One of the ideas that has proved to be almost impervious to evidence is the idea that wise and far-sighted people need to take control and plan economic and social policies so that there will be a rational and just order, rather than chaos resulting from things being allowed to take their own course. It sounds so logical and plausible that demanding hard evidence would seem almost like nit-picking.

In one form or another, this idea goes back at least as far as the French Revolution in the 18th century. As J.A. Schumpeter later wrote of that era, "general well-being ought to have been the consequence," but "instead we find misery, shame and, at the end of it all, a stream of blood."

Automobiles


We're told cars are dangerous. It's safer to drive through South Central Los Angeles than to walk there. We're told cars are wasteful. Wasteful of what? Oil did a lot of good sitting in the ground for millions of years. We're told cars should be replaced with mass transportation. But it's hard to reach the drive-through window at McDonald's from a speeding train. And we're told cars cause pollution. A hundred years ago city streets were ankle deep in horse excrement. What kind of pollution do you want? Would you rather die of cancer at eighty or typhoid fever at nine?

"We need to stand up and we don't have to be victims,"


Woman 2, thugs 0 after home invasion

One gun isn't enough.

That was what Linda Smith (a pseudonym) was thinking after two thugs broke into her Oklahoma apartment. One was holding a weapon (she initially thought it was a knife but it turned out to be a screwdriver) at her throat, and the other was pacing back and forth while holding her purse and demanding her money and valuables. She screamed, and was told if she screamed again, she'd be dead.

She was doing as police recommend in robberies – comply with a robber's demands. But her Lady Smith & Wesson .38 special, which she carries by permit, was hidden in her purse – and the purse was being held by one of the attackers.

Then the situation, suddenly, got much, much worse: One of the robbers demanded that she take off her clothes.

When Politicians Don't Lie...


But the Good Men Must Stand...


"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

—Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

White House Denies Flood Assistance

The White House gave no reason for denying the disaster aid request.

A Fool and Our Money


The President Haters

Obama is different -- in part because of the way he was so relentlessly hyped during his ascension to office, and the way he played along with it, toying with the public's expectations and transparently enjoying his status as demigod. But he is no longer the godling of legend, the Illinois messiah here to lead us to a left-wing Eden. He is merely a community organizer in over his head. The blowback triggered by disappointments of such depth can be ferocious. FDR was never foolish enough to make promises on this level (listen to his 1933 inaugural speech), and it served him well over three full terms. Obama was, and now he must pay the piper.

Gun Control


Gun control is using 2 hands

This battle between government power and an armed citizenry was recognized as far back as 600 B.C. when Aesop said, "Those who voluntarily put power into the hands of a tyrant or an enemy must not be surprised if it is turned against themselves." If the government somehow managed to banish all guns tomorrow, how long do you think before we'd be laboring under tyranny?

The surge in gun sales when Obama came into office was not the result of a sudden and passionate love of hunting; it was because people instinctively recognized that our government is becoming a larger threat to our personal liberties. Gun ownership is a tool to keep that threat in check.

Quite simply, the Second Amendment has become a power struggle between the government and the people. The government wants more power over the people. The people want more power over the government. No surprise there.

But we have to look back in history (no matter how irrelevant that may seem to Progressives) and judge what the original overall intent was of the Founding Fathers. Was their original intent to create a massive and tyrannical government? Or was their original intent to create a constrained government that would guard people's God-given rights? C'mon, 'fess up. You know which one is true.

So, since Progressives cannot simply eliminate gun ownership overnight, they've taken a far more insidious and cowardly course, which is a refusal to educate the nation's children about their heritage. The founding documents are seldom if ever studied in public schools and, if they are, they're invariably given the obligatory liberal interpretation.

3 Quotes, 1 Man


Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

--Abraham Lincoln

It is the eternal struggle between these two principles - right and wrong. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time and will ever continue to struggle. It is the same spirit that says, "You work and toil and earn bread, and I'll eat it."

--Abraham Lincoln

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.

--Abraham Lincoln

Champagne from 1780s found by divers in shipwreck in Baltic Sea, could belong to Louis XVI

Divers earlier this week discovered about 30 bottles of centuries-old champagne in a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea. It is thought to be the world's oldest drinkable champagne.

The bubbly possibly dates back to the 1780s and is believed to be the top brand Veuve Clicquot.

It has remained perfectly preserved 180 feet deep on the seabed and "tasted fantastic," according to one wine expert.

Do the Shuffle!


More Than 60 La Jolla Beachgoers Stung By Stingrays

To avoid getting stung by a ray, swimmers and surfers are advised to shuffle their feet through the sand while walking in the surf instead of taking normal up-and-down steps, particularly if there have been recent reports of the flat-bodied, long-tailed venomous fish in the area.

"flat-bodied, long-tailed venomous fish." Otherwise know as stingrays?

And for some reason this annoying song popped into my head when I read that paragraph:

The Destroyers


The October Surprise Is Coming

Ayn Rand wrote of statism that

a statist system -- whether of a communist, fascist, Nazi, socialist or 'welfare' type -- is based on the ... government's unlimited power, which means: on the rule of brute force. ... Under statism, the government is not a policeman, but a legalized criminal that holds the power to use physical force in any manner and for any purpose it pleases against legally disarmed, defenseless victims.


With chilling prescience, Rand said,
"The basic principle and the ultimate results of all statist doctrines are the same: dictatorship and destruction. The rest is only a matter of time."

Only a matter of time.

We have a long and terrible fight in front of us. The fight is as big as the idea, the foundation, the being of this great nation, the fight for America. Yes, it's as big as all that, and the enemy is ruthless, unscrupulous, and evil -- and willing to do whatever it takes to assume absolute control. They build nothing, produce nothing, create nothing, invent nothing. They steal. They demand. They demoralize. They are destroyers.

What will October's Surprise be? Political analyst Jack Wheeler has an idea. "A Second Great Depression," he says, "is the Democrat Party's path to power":

Our country is faced with an impending economic catastrophe, a Second Great Depression. It is being brought about on purpose by a political party that cares only for keeping and expanding its power, and looks upon prosperity as a threat to that power.


You think the Democrats aren't really that bad? Think again.

Thank Yo!

Things We Need to Know


Drowning Doesn't Look Like Drowning

The new captain jumped from the cockpit, fully dressed, and sprinted through the water. A former lifeguard, he kept his eyes on his victim as he headed straight for the owners who were swimming between their anchored sportfisher and the beach. "I think he thinks you’re drowning," the husband said to his wife. They had been splashing each other and she had screamed but now they were just standing, neck-deep on the sand bar. "We're fine, what is he doing?" she asked, a little annoyed. "We're fine!" the husband yelled, waving him off, but his captain kept swimming hard. "Move!" he barked as he sprinted between the stunned owners. Directly behind them, not ten feet away, their nine-year-old daughter was drowning. Safely above the surface in the arms of the captain, she burst into tears, "Daddy!"

We Are About to Plunge Into the Abyss


The Progressives' Legacy of Bankruptcy: The roots of our current crisis.

Who has driven America to this precipice? Certainly part of the blame belongs to the politicians, primarily Democrats, who created and enlarged these entitlements without imposing taxes anywhere near sufficient to sustain them, and otherwise seriously mismanaged the programs’ finances. On a deeper level, however, the blame belongs to the late-19th- and early-20th-century Progressive movement. Despite recent claims that the Progressives had little impact upon the development of liberalism in the New Deal and beyond, including in the realm of social insurance, the Progressives were in fact the founding fathers of social insurance in America. Far from making a break with Progressivism, accordingly, the enactment of these programs during the New Deal and Great Society represents the clear policy fruit of the philosophical revolution as to the end of government, and the fundamental conception of morality underlying it, that the Progressives fought so vigorously to effect.

Of course, persuading many Americans that Progressivism initiated a struggle over the soul of America is a hard sell. For decades, liberal scholars and politicians have attributed the 20th-century growth of government to changes in the mere material circumstances of American life. The Progressive era’s progressive reforms, we have been told, were the necessary and inevitable response to problems created by the closing of the frontier, the rise of huge corporations and a transition to large-scale factory production, population shifts out of the countryside and into the city, large waves of immigration, etc. The New Deal, in turn, was simply a response to the economic hardships caused by the Great Depression. By attributing these periods’ reforms to America’s changing material circumstances, the orthodox view implies that there was no change of philosophical or moral import likewise under way. More to the point, it implies that the Progressives’ reforms were guided by the principles of the American Founding.

And yet this is demonstrably false.

What Would We Do Without NASA?


First, it's primary mission is to improve relations with the Muslim world (which I'm beginning to think is a misunderstanding of the definition of the word 'world'), now it's testing soccer balls. Well, at least it has to do with aerodynamics.

NASA Has Lost It's Way


NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his "foremost" mission as the head of America's space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

NASA stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Better relations with Muslims and space exploration have no relationship. Who the hell made this guy Chief of NASA?

Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

Oh. Well, there you go. No further explanation needed.

Entitlement Culture


Progressivism's appeal to our baser instincts by Erik Rush

A key dynamic I addressed in my book "Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal - America's Racial Obsession," was the process by which progressives incrementally initiated black Americans into the entitlement culture, dependency and dysfunction. This is most poignantly illustrated by the plight of poor, inner-city blacks. During the civil-rights-movement era, black Americans were somewhat vulnerable to these machinations, but the process still took nearly 50 years.

Now, these millions are coming to the realization that black Americans were merely a small-scale experiment conducted by the radical Left – and a very successful one. With the ascension of Barack Obama to the presidency, the word was given that it was time to enlarge that experiment, or, rather, to apply the now-proven theory to the general populace on a larger scale than ever before.
