Maybe he's not what we think.

(Jacked from Blue)

Just a thought...

OK, we know what this is.  We know what it's for.  And we know that FedGovCo is going to enact it regardless of the rule of law or the will of the people.

Commissioner Pai says that the FCC is “adopting a solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist using legal authority we don’t have.” He estimates that the regulations will add up to $11 billion in new taxes on Internet access. 

In a commentary, “Neutralize Obama’s Hijacking of the Internet”, Judi McLeod, the editor of CanadaFreePress.com, said “Forget NSA, the FBI, the CIA, and all warnings sent by Edward Snowden. They’ve got nothing on how Net Neutrality will silence you.”

“Someday in the near future when you type in the words “Islamic terrorists” in an Internet post, you will be knocked off the Net and find it all but impossible to climb back on again.”

But there is one small point that you tyrants might want to consider before you do this:

If America's conservatives are forced off the internet, they might actually have to DO something about you, other than bitching online.

That could be...unpleasant.

Just throwing that out there.

Obviously a racist.

This young man is twelve years old, and he lifts my heart and spirit with the fire of Truth and Justice.

“When they [ISIS] kill innocent Americans that have done no wrong except report on what is their constitutional right as journalists and you do nothing about it, you don’t care about their lives. You could care less!” 
“But here’s what you need to realize: here in America, we don’t back down to terrorists. We fight them on their own battleground and we annihilate them till the very end.” 
“Here in America, we don’t allow the government to take away what we work for but we continue to work harder so that we may continue to succeed.”

Twelve.  God be with us, there may be hope for this nation yet.  Mr. Pearson, I salute you.

Three-fer: Random Sex On The Moon

Logic and reason are the defining characteristics of our humanity.  They're how we figured out the world around us and established our place in it.  Extrapolation from past events led us to be able to pick our path in the future.  Now, they've been so far debased that life has become nothing but a series of random, totally unconnected events.

I don’t understand why folks are giving President Obama and his spokes-minions such a hard time over his insistence that Ahmedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who just happened to be Muslim committing terrorism that had nothing to do with Islam, was just “randomly” picking out folks in Paris to kill when he randomly came upon a grocery that just happened to be Jewish and, coincidentally, to have Jews in it, whom he randomly killed.

Sure, we know Coulibaly called a French TV station during the siege, said he was loyal to the Islamic State that has nothing to do with Islam, and that he picked this kosher market because he was targeting Jews. But you can’t believe everything you hear on TV — just ask Brian Williams.

Come to think of it, the Paris attack seems an awful lot like another random one in 2008. Back then, another group of Pakistani terrorists who just happened to be Muslim, and who belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba Islamic terrorist organization that has nothing to do with Islam, went looking for random folks to kill and just happened to stumble on the Nariman House, a Chabad Lubavitch Jewish center which, coincidentally, had Jews in it — Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, then six months pregnant.

And this is what this mentality eventually leads to...complete, willful insanity, crippling one's ability to deal with physical and biological realities.  These people think complex things are simple, while simultaneously making the simplest things far more complicated than they ever needed to be.
As we summit the tipping point between identity politics and culture war, keeping track of the psychosexualethnographic factions claiming to be microagressed is so preoccupying that even George R.R. Martin is probably saying, “Whoa. Whoa. This is getting pretty convoluted.” Most sane people can blissfully ignore the academic debates surrounding this look-at-me-I’m-the-most-special-snowflake factionalism, but there are a few notable exceptions. The current crop of feminists have become particularly shrill, perhaps in proportion to how unrepresentative they are. But they shouldn’t be ignored for one reason in particular: They are trying to ruin sex as we know it.

Where feminism once promised sexual liberation, as a social movement it’s become so birdbrained it no longer even knows what sex is or how two people have it. (It’s a foregone conclusion that the why of sex is lost on them as well.) By now, most men are accustomed to feminists railing against their tools of oppression, but these days if you don’t show due deference to a woman’s penis—well, that’s when all hell breaks loose.

Some explanation here is probably necessary. Last year, I found myself listening to an episode of NPR’s “Tell Me More,” where an assembled group of activists and writers discussed whether the Internet was ruining feminism. The discussion was occasioned by an article in The Nation, “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars,” by Michelle Goldberg. Goldberg’s credentials as a left-leaning feminist weren’t previously in dispute, so the article’s thesis was genuinely shocking: With easy anonymity and the near instantaneous ability to whip up social media mobs, the Internet was pushing feminists to insufferable levels of stridency and infighting. When The Nation, a magazine that for most of its storied history has regarded Communism an unalloyed force for good, denigrates the current state of feminism as “Maoist hazing,” we are truly through the looking glass.

Of course, this is what happens when a society abandons God.  That society is committing suicide.  It is giving itself over to idiocy, madness and eventual destruction.

There was a moon landing conspiracy, a cover up that occurred, because the evidence of that event was edited out of the official story. Nasa was still reeling from a lawsuit by Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the founder of American Atheists, over the fact that the Apollo 8 crew had read the Genesis creation tale in orbit. So the entire communion event was not broadcast and not mentioned in the media.

It is rarely mentioned to this day. In fact, it has been so erased from the public consciousness, some people refuse to believe it happened at all. The truth remains however, when astronauts first went into space, God was on their mind. One can hardly leave the planet and look out at that vast array without at least contemplating the nature of the Creator.

History is always written by the victors, edited by the politics of the day, and often erased completely from the public consciousness in only one generation. Sometimes I am just astounded by what children are taught to believe and how difficult it is to show them what really happened, not that long ago, in my lifetime actually.

Just some stuff to think about.

An olive branch

OK, Leftists, I'm actually not going to give you any shit in this post.  Really.

We have our disagreements, to be sure, but you might want to take a good look at this link.

Now, some of the groups listed as FedGovCo targets here ( "Military Veterans," "Open Border Opponents," "Militias," "Patriot Movement" ) will undoubtedly make you very pleased.  But notice the others on the list.  "Anti-War Individuals/Groups."  "Single-Issue Voters(Animal rights, Environmental)."  "Alternative Media, which provide 'interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media outlets.'"

These people consider you as much of a threat to their power as they do us.  And they are ruthless in holding onto that power.  The solution is not to lobby FedGovCo to crush us, for if they succeed in doing so, they will turn on you next.

Those of you who haven't been completely consumed by your ideology, who still possess the capacity to work with those who may have differing opinions and viewpoints, may wish to reach out to your fellow Americans of the Conservative and Libertarian stripes.  Perhaps we can find some common ground, and work together to stop our common enemy:  the power-mad plutocrats running the show.

Just something to think about.

How America rolls

America was the first country on Earth that elevated the rights of the individual.  Hence, the Constitution begins with three words in enormous font: 

We the People

"We the people" are supposed to run this country, not crony corporatists and political hacks.  And that concept may finally be sinking in.  From coast to coast, Americans are simply refusing to comply with laws they see as unjust and unConstitutional.  

The latest example is the ongoing battle against Second Amendment infringements in Washington state.  Mike Vanderboegh  is one of those engaging in armed civil disobedience, and his friend and colleague David Codrea weighed in on his decision to do so earlier:

There's a growing movement that's getting sick and damned tired of all the posturing and games, while rights we clearly understand are ours are being denied by self-serving oathbreakers as citizens are intimidated and punished for exercising them. Some people are through asking. They're going to start taking back, especially where listening to the lawyers and the lobbyists has failed. 
Like it or not, that's what's happening. 
Look at the untold hundreds of thousands of gun owners, who simply wish to be left alone but who are adamant in demanding their rights, and who have thus refused to register their guns as ordered in places like California, New York and Connecticut.  
Look at how “authorities” know their demands have been ignored for all to see, and wish some of their impulse control-challenged media sycophants would stop calling attention to their impotence, and instead catch on to a self-imposed code of silence on mass “scofflaw” roundups that the major anti-gun groups seem to have adopted. Look at how government agents backed down from armed citizens at the Bundy Ranch. Look at how Oath Keepers maintained their armed rooftop vigils, despite unlawful police orders to stand down. 
Look at the resolve of Washington’s “I Will Not Comply” activists.

At the rally yesterday, Mr. Vanderboegh gave a fine speech which laid it out plainly:  Individual action will succeed where our 'leaders' have been failing.

This isn’t about “common sense gun safety” as they claim. This is about control – their control of a government monopoly of violence over the people. They don’t want to hear any dissent from you in the peanut galleries, so they will silence you. BUT THEY WILL SILENCE YOU IF, AND ONLY IF, YOU ALLOW THEM TO DO IT. Will you allow them to silence you? Will you? 
They hide behind their priveleges, this new parliamentary tyranny, this self-appointed Mandarin class of our so-called “betters” – they hide behind their alleged “purviews” and “parliamentary priveleges” and expect their designated bully boys of the Washington State Police to make you knuckle under – or else. 
It is not THEIR precious butts they put on the line with their unconstitutional diktats – oh, no, never their own – no, they misuse the good men and women of the Washington State Police to do that. For they are at heart cowards, and they know it. And they are right to be right about that one thing – firearms in the hands of the people scare them. They are as allergic to them as Dracula is to crucifixes and for the same reason – they get in the way of tyrannical appetites.

These folks not only made their point at the Capitol building, they brought their demands to the Governor's mansion as well:

We came out of the Capitol building feeling indescribable; we were fulfilling a blood-bought debt.  All the Founders ever asked of us was that we do our part, that we stand as they did.  They asked that we guard our liberty, but if it ever became necessary, that we stand in the breach and say no more. 
An unconstitutional law is no law at all. 
As we marched to the gate of the governor’s mansion, the State Patrol trooper watched us approach from his security booth.  We paused at the gate next to his door, and Rep. Shea and Rep. Scott stood in front of the crowd.  As the trooper slowly opened the door, he was greeted heartily and respectfully by the two people who were truly acting as the Representatives of the People.

This is how we're going to win.  By recognizing that our God-given human rights are not up for discussion or debate, and understanding that anyone attempting to curtail those rights is to be ignored, resisted, or dealt with however necessary...

...but never, ever obeyed.

Ya know...I buy it.

Every real American has been wondering WTF the GOP is thinking with their insane attempts to shove Bush 3.0 up our asses.  Doug Ross might just have the answer:

Without Democrats and conservatives, who exactly is Bush's constituency?

I have no earthly idea.

Thus, my conspiracy theory.

It seems plausible.  Remember, folks, I'm not paranoid; I got this way from being proved right too often.
