"Evil peddles tolerance until it is dominant then seeks to silence good"

You Will Be Made to Care
In short, you may choose not to care and in so doing sit on the sidelines or give aid and comfort to the open minded and tolerant who want gay marriage so everyone can have equal rights.

But the world will one day make you care. Your church, should it open its doors to all, but refuse to perform a same sex wedding, will be accused of discrimination. In some places, the church will be forced to stop performing weddings. Many churches will lose their tax exempt status. The costs of sharing the gospel will go up.

Already Christians are being harassed by fellow American citizens for not wanting to participate in a gay marriage.

The time will come, more quickly than you can imagine, when you will be made to care.
It may appear, by my choice of quotes, that by evil I mean gays and that is not the case. The evil is behind and under the issue, it is using this issue, and many others, and cares not a whit for the people involved. When America falls - whatever form that takes- poor people and rich, gay or straight, black, white, hispanic or mixed-- we all go down together.

Fear the Christians!

"For safety reasons?" Must protect professor from eeeeeviiil Christians, eh? Yeah, right. What a joke. Higher learning? Our universities are a joke.

Helicoptors with Chain Saws

Looks terrifyingly dangerous.

Amazingly enough, not banned. This is in Jackson, New Jersey.

Why Worry About the Deficit...

when you can just steal the money from your citizens? Quite literally.
Deposits above 100,000 euros in both banks, which are not guaranteed under EU law, will be frozen and used to resolve Laiki's debts and recapitalize Bank of Cyprus through a deposit/equity conversion.

No Escaping North Korean Hell

What kind of people send back those fortunate few who have escaped the hell-hole that is North Korea?
Meanwhile, China is still apparently sending back North Korean civilian defectors as well. Eight North Korean defectors who were caught by Chinese security officers in Yanji earlier this month were transferred to a camp for defectors in Tumen and all sent back across the border, according to a source.

Five of them were children, some of whom had reportedly scraped a living by begging for food.
Sent back to their deaths, no doubt. How heartless can people get? Wait, don't answer that. I don't want to plumb the depths of that darkness.

Janet Napolitano upgrading Saudis into 'trusted traveler' program
Saudi Arabia, which gave us 15 of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers, will soon get the coveted "trusted traveler" status from the Department of Homeland Security.

Only a few other countries - Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands and South Korea - have been granted the same status, which is designed to ease entry into the United States for low-risk airline passengers
Shut down homeland security. Seriously. What is the point? Homeland security is becoming the KGB of America. It's a massive agency designed to keep Americans in line. It barely pretends to protect our borders or even acknowledge terrorists exist outside of the TEA party.

*FYI: there are no terrorists in the TEA party.

He Don't Need No Stinkin' Guns

Man arrested after fatal vacuum cleaner beating
Police have arrested a man in California on charges that he fatally beat his wife with a vacuum cleaner in North Las Vegas.
File under: NOT A GUN PROBLEM, it's a people problem.

3-year-old boy punished at school for 'shooting' his friends with his fingers
Dobbs was not satisfied with the school official's answer. She states that she does not feel that the crime fits the punishment. The conversation reiterated that he was not being disruptive or disrespectful in his actions. His "crime" was simply "shooting" at his friends with his fingers during playtime.
It's 100% normal behavior, it hurts NO ONE, little boys who play cops and robbers, or whatever, grow up to be normal adults. Little kids who are ABUSED by school teachers and government schools will be the ones who grow up with deep psychological problems. Read how the mother tries to reason with school officials. You can't reason with school officials, they are unreasonable. He's 3 years old! Why are your kids still in government schools?

Institutionalized Child Abuse

Government schools and the culture of cowering
Mark [Steyn] reminds us that "these small things are not small," and he's right:
. . . the scars left by being raised in a culture in which you're expected to go to the trauma counselor if you've been exposed to a gun-shaped Pop Tart does far more damage than being exposed to the gun-shaped Pop Tart.
Creating irrational fears in children is abusive. Also damaging to young souls and minds is the institutionalized squelching of the imagination and the subverting of rationality (kids know that gun-shaped Pop Tarts can't hurt them), both evident in the Pop Tart incident. One wonders if the cogs in this machine ever speculate on the real purpose behind bureaucratic promotion of absurd, arbitrary rules, baseless fears, and mental paralysis. Hint: In what kind of society is a cowering populace a necessity?
And they are doubling down on this stuff, they make no apologies, they give no quarter. And you're OK with that? Where is the outrage, except among the few?

Because the Federal Government Wants to Know

Feds Spend $1.5 Million to Study Why Lesbians Are Fat
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded $1.5 million to study biological and social factors for why "three-quarters" of lesbians are obese and why gay males are not, calling it an issue of "high public-health significance."
If someone wants to study why lesbians are fat I don't have a problem with it, study away! Just NOT with federal funds, I don't care if it's a drop in the bucket, there are thousands of these drops in the bucket and they add up to buckets full.

Terroristic Threats?

N.J. Mother Arrested, Guns Confiscated- By Attending Property Tax Dispute Forum

It's a bit of a read to get through what is said to have happened, and I'd really like to see video of the event, but in the end:
She was arrested and booked for "terroristic threats" and "contempt."
Terroristic threats? The Fort Hood shooter (Hasan) was never even charged with terroristic anything - and he killed 13 people. He was "charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder by the Army;" No terrorism.

Why are they so quick to label Americans as terrorists or possible terrorists when they go out of their way to avoid calling REAL terrorist what they are? And they are dumbfounded when we ask Eric Holder if they think they can target American citizens with drones?

The Jayhawkers

A pretty good movie from 1959 which illustrates the attractiveness and likability of evil, tyrannical leaders. Interesting in light of what we are going through now. On Netflix streaming.

The Jayhawkers
In pre-Civil War Kansas, megalomaniac Luke Darcy (Jeff Chandler) aims to take full control of the territory with the help of a band of the titular militant freedom fighters. But ex-convict Cam (Fess Parker) wants to stand in his way. Cam wants revenge for Luke's role in the death of his wife and the loss of his farm, but once he joins the Jayhawkers himself he wonders if it might be best to join Luke's cause.

And Another Thing

What's with all the hit and runs lately? A couple times a week at least. Is that just a Florida thing or is that nationwide. too? Seriously, it's an epidemic.

Teachers Behaving Badly

I don't know if it's just Florida or it's nation wide, but this kind of thing happens WAY to much for my comfort. What is wrong with these teachers?

Time for John McCain to Retire*

McCain calls Paul, Cruz, Amash ‘wacko birds’
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as "wackos."
Huffington Post? And he is calling other people wackos? There is only one reason I vote Republican. ONE. There is no other choice that has a legitimate chance to win an election. But I am honestly on the verge of not caring anymore. Other will be getting my vote. John McCain is the Republican Biden.

* Lindsay Graham and John Boehner, too. The list is longer, don't know all the names.

Embrace the Crime

Submitted as further evidence the world is going insane.

Guerilla knitting in Leicester 'to reduce crime fear'
Hundreds of pom-poms and knitted items have been strung from trees and lampposts to help reduce the fear of crime in an area of Leicester.

Leicestershire Police hope the "guerilla knitting" or "yarn bombing" will encourage more people to use Bede Park and Great Central Way.
People are not using Bede Park and Great Central Way - presumably because of crime - so they want to encourage people to go there anyway and not fear the crime. Because criminals and police officers need the work?

Universal Healthcare

Japanese man dies after being turned away from 25 hospitals
The man, who lived alone in a city north of Tokyo, called an ambulance after suffering breathing problems at his home in January.

Paramedics rushed to his house but were told in turn by all 25 hospitals in the area that they could not accept the man because they did not have enough doctors or any free beds, a local city official said, adding some institutions were contacted more than once.
Can't wait till it kicks in here.

How Can Something So Right, Sound So Wrong?

Negative conditioning. Especially in our schools, where it is NEVER OK to fight back, to protect yourself. If you do you get suspended while the bully goes free.

Yes, My Son, It Is Okay To Hit People
A couple of months ago, while attending a play group with my four-year-old son and one-year-old daughter, another little two-year-old girl lashed out and hit another child. Her mother, ripe with indignation, swept the girl into her arms and scolded, "No! It is NEVER okay to hit people."

My skin crawled. The scenarios flowed through my head and I couldn't restrain myself.

"Would you tell her that if she was being abducted?" I asked.

The mother stopped and blinked a few times and then stuttered, "Well... that's different."

"Yes, it is," I said. "But you just told her that it was never okay to hit people. That's not entirely true. There are times it's okay to hit people and to hit them hard."

Project Much?

Reich: Tea Party 'Conspiracy to Undermine the Government of the United States'
Reich, who has steadfastly supported President Barack Obama's big-government, tax-and-spend agenda, wrote that the Tea Party had "infiltrated" the government at every level, and had used the budget cuts in the sequester to begin "dismantling pieces of it." He outlined the rest of his conspiracy theory at the left-wing

Imagine a plot to undermine the government of the United States, to destroy much of its capacity to do the public’s business, and to sow distrust among the population.

Imagine further that the plotters infiltrate Congress and state governments, reshape their districts to give them disproportionate influence in Washington, and use the media to spread big lies about the government.

Finally, imagine they not only paralyze the government but are on the verge of dismantling pieces of it.

Far-fetched? Perhaps. But take a look at what’s been happening in Washington and many state capitals since Tea Party fanatics gained effective control of the Republican Party, and you’d be forgiven if you see parallels.
Wow, "the Tea Party had "infiltrated" the government at every level" in, like, 5 years. In fact, and let me quote the Wikipedia article:
The Tea Party movement is not easily defined, primarily because there is not a single "Tea Party." It consists of hundreds of groups at the grassroots level, of varying size, influence and priorities. It is highly factionalized, with no clear leadership or centralized structure.
it did all Robert Reich claims "with no clear leadership or centralized structure." Now that's incredible! That's amazing considering it took communists many decades to finally get to the point of fundamentally changing our government and then claiming America has always been a socialist nation and anyone who disagrees and tries to block their fundamental change is a terrorist.

The problems is, the young people they are teaching believe them. It's going to get much worse before it gets better.

It's Policy

Nurse Refused to Give CPR to a Dying Woman
An elderly California woman died after a nurse at her senior living facility refused to perform CPR, despite a 911 dispatcher begging her over the phone.

Instead, the nurse said the facility's policy prohibited her from stepping in to save the woman's life.

"It's a human being," dispatcher Tracey Halvorson said in 911 audio released by the Bakersfield, Calif. fire department, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Is there anybody that's willing to help this lady and not let her die?"

"Not at this time," came the answer.
And the love of many will wax cold.

It's Preposterous

Mayor Bloomberg on spending money we don't have:
"We are spending money we don’t have," Mr. Bloomberg explained. "It's not like your household. In your household, people are saying, ‘Oh, you can’t spend money you don’t have.’ That is true for your household because nobody is going to lend you an infinite amount of money. When it comes to the United States federal government, people do seem willing to lend us an infinite amount of money. … Our debt is so big and so many people own it that it's preposterous to think that they would stop selling us more. It's the old story: If you owe the bank $50,000, you got a problem. If you owe the bank $50 million, they got a problem. And that's a problem for the lenders. They can’t stop lending us more money."
So that's how it works, eh. Well, since we're talking an infinite amount of money, how about giving all of us a million dollars a year? No more poor! Imagine! It's preposterous to think that would be a problem.

Schools Becoming Child Abuse Centers

Schools locked down over "ambiguous message" taken as threat
Beaver County schools had their lives "flipped, turned upside down" Thursday morning when a phone greeting involving the theme song from the 1990s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" was taken as a threat.

All schools in the county were advised to lock down for about 20 minutes while police searched for a 19-year-old Ambridge Area High School student whose greeting to callers was mistakenly taken as a threat about "shooting people outside of the school."

The actual line from the song is "And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school."
Aren't they embarrassed to be so stupid? Doesn't someone - anyone - between the school secretary to the police department have any sense at all. Seriously. They locked down all the schools and took the kid (who was in the guidance office) into custody because he sang the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on his voice mail greeting?
"The procedures in place were efficient and quickly implemented and proved to be successful,"
Successful? It's the exact opposite of successful. They double down on stupid. It's child abuse.

They make it sound like it's funny in this newscast. And police say the student has learned his lesson? What lesson is there for the student? That adults are idiots? It took the police 3 hours and searching his locker to determine there was no threat? Couldn't they just listen to his phone greeting before flying off the handle? And yes, you can be too careful.


Americans renouncing citizenship to become British thanks to tax rise
London-based American lawyers, who specialise in tax and immigration, report a threefold increase over the last five years in the number of American citizens who are giving up their citizenship - a process known as "renunciation".

Across the world 1,781 Americans renounced their citizenship in 2011 compared with just 231 in 2008, when US tax laws changed, although it remains unknown how many are adopting British rather than any other nationality.
Apparently not so seriously. Who would go from America to England because of high taxes? No way it could make that much difference.
Many decide to give up their American citizenship after tiring of the lengthy US tax return process, which requires them to pay tax on their total income regardless of where they live.
Well, I suppose if you are already living there with no plans to move. Still, the headline is very misleading as it says in the 2nd paragraph the number of people adopting Britain are unknown with 1,782 renouncing citizenship worldwide - hardly a "surge."

Cry Me a River

As sequestration nears, federal workers brace for furloughs, vent anger at politicians
The 48-year-old building engineer at the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing hasn’t had a cost-of-living pay raise in more than two years, even as his rent and insurance premiums went up. Now he and other federal workers in Washington and across the country are bracing for possible unpaid furloughs as part of an $85 billion reduction in federal spending.

"Rent's due the first of the month whether I'm furloughed or not," said Blevins, who commutes from his home in Culpeper, Va., to his night shift job in Washington. "You just really have to squeeze a little more out of each dollar. That's just what it comes down to."
Oh look, the people in Washington are starting to feel what the rest of us have been going through the past 5 years.
All across the D.C. area and the rest of the country, federal workers like Blevins are having tense, belt-tightening conversations with spouses, kids and co-workers. They’re canceling little luxuries such as cable, cellphone service, restaurants and movie nights, putting off long-planned vacations and searching for second jobs. Some are thinking about raiding their 401(k)s for emergency cash.
I haven't had cable in years, and I haven't been to a movie except the time I won free tickets. And what's this vacation he's talking about? And I consider myself blessed, so many are much worse off.
"I am a registered Republican. However, I blame the Republican Party for this," said Gregory Russell, a 48-year-old federal firefighter at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. Russell calculates he’d lose about $1,200 a month – about 20 percent of his pay – if he gets furloughed.
The ex-workers in the rest of America are lucky if they are getting $1,200 a month - and he's worried about 20 percent of his pay. Boo, hoo.

The Washington D.C. area has been having a gold rush while the rest of America crumbles. Literally crumbles in many cases. And yet the media - as this article does - continues to blame Republicans for all the troubles. The Republicans couldn't fight their way out a paper bag at this point, let alone get in the way of the Democrat Demolition Crew.
