Idolatry and Red’s wolf’s dripping fangs …

August 9, 2010

The fumbling bumbling Peter, of the Twelve Apostles, wrote this at the end of his first  epistle –

Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

— 1 Peter 5:8b [context vv. 6-10]

Only a blind, deaf-mute would not notice that something sinister is roaming about, seeking its prey … yet, gazing upon the devastation current devastation to our peace and sanctity, one would think even the challenged must sense its presence.

Whatever this “something” is, it’s a fat rogue of a creature, all covered in soft wool, blinding like snow in the noon sun; but like Red’s wolf, its blood dripping fangs betray it to the vigilant and discerning.

Victims abound, so even in Dust Bowl times its gullet is full – though not filled, its belly round – though not jovial. Princes and governments grovel at its feet; tycoons and leaders swoon at the sound of its name.

Whole generations are dying off, once great nations stumble, the prurient and wicked rise up out of  the flares of Gehenna’s outburst. Principles once held sacred by our ancestors we flick aside like an errant ant on society’s sleeve.

Virtues once taught inside the vaulted marble walls of the world’s Universities are now shunned by the Kindergarten teacher as irrelevant. Instead, every atom of man’s intellect is taught as inspired orthodoxy.

Like so many Van Winkles, vast populations slumber … all seem unaware the sky is falling or that Hans Brinker is a no-show at the dike of man’s doom. Their handlers ignore their muffled snores, grateful for their wards’ chronic narcolepsy.

All, in dreaminess and reverie, are chasing a cottontail down the rabbit hole into oblivion, unmindful of their destination … believing, quite sincerely, that their view is the only rational and reasonable view of our lives and times. They are chasing after a rainbow and expect to hold the world in their hand … and if not in their hand then in their pocket.

The Bible sums up “all that is in the world” in three categories: “the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.” [1 John 2:16 ]

One social scientist inadvertently corroborated the Scriptures in his reconstruction of the development of American and British scandals:

sex scandals (flesh: sexual immorality), financial scandals (eyes: materialism/greed) and what he calls ‘power scandals’ (world: pride/privilege/position) in Britain and the United State.

We’ve seen enough of these to last a lifetime … but more and worse are coming.

Evil in drag rears its ugly head and the multitudes roar with approval, not realizing the beast from Hell will devour its enemies first and then, when done, it will come for its friends. And the last idiot sacrificed on its tongue will exclaim, “Kooooolllll!” Such is the path we are on.

The unbrella of federal corruption …

August 2, 2010

If Obama’s DOJ prevails in the courts re Obamacare, THEN it will have succeeded in undermining the 10th Amendment irreparably.

If the courts determine the federal government has the constitutional authority to force the citizens of a given state to purchase a product from a private company, THEN it can force our people to buy anything that hypothetically, theoretically, actually, or virtually, crosses a state’s border. It might even, by fiat, “deem” it to have crossed such a line.

How you ask? By default. Following such a decision, name one product which that wouldn’t fall under that umbrella?

You might suggest a product produced exclusively within the borders of a given state. I would counter, only if 100% of the product is produced in the state, not 99 44/100%. If so much as a lubricant came from another state, Then it would fall in the shade. If the plastic wrap on the packaged good came from another state … bingo!

I would really be interested in hearing your thoughts on this one.


An unfalsifiable bias against truth …

July 31, 2010

A person’s arrogance may blind him to truth in such a way he acquires an unfalsifiable bias against it … like trying to read a traffic sign with the sun directly behind it.

It’s commonly known if the narcissist eye-witnesses an event his ego can’t handle, he will deny it happened.

Some people are indirectly blinded by the conceit of others and can’t see the truth for the glare … like trying to read house numbers while snowblind. Included in this category are may highly educated RINOs, lawyers, and prominent personalities.

Children, I talks to God and God talks to me. I goes out and talks to God in de fields and de woods. Dis morning I was walking out, and I got over de fence. I saw de wheat a holding up its head, looking very big. I goes up and takes holt ob it. You b’lieve it, dere was no wheat dare? I says, God, what is de matter wid dis wheat? and he says to me, “Sojourner, dere is a little weasel in it.”

Now I hears talkin’ about de Constitution and de rights of man. I comes up and I takes hold of dis Constitution. it looks mighty big, and I feels for my rights, but der aint any dare. Den, I says, God, what ails dis Constitution? He says to me, “Sojourner, dere is a little weasel in it.”

I carry no weapon; the Lord will reserve [i.e., preserve] me without weapons, I feel safe even in the midst of my enemies; for the truth is powerful and will prevail.

Sojourner Truth

Americans, take your eyes off your selves and your cultural idols … seek instead truth. You know where to find it – in the words of our nation’s historical elders and founders.

Chi’len, you listen to ol’ Sojourner, “You know dere a bunch dem weasels in Washington!”


Greatest deliberative body in free world is a slut farm …

July 29, 2010

In terms of her profession, Nancy Pelosi is the poorest representative in memory, let alone the most secularly-execrable Speaker of the House in American’s brief  history … with some variations, the same can be said for Harry Reid in the Senate.

These two, along with their Republican and Democratic accomplices make up the most distrusted major institution in American history; with a rating of less than 12 percent support, they are clearly the most unpopular Congress ever.

Gallup’s annual update on confidence in institutions finds just 12% of Americans expressing confidence in Congress, the lowest of the 16 institutions tested this year, and the worst rating Gallup has measured for any institution in the 35-year history of this question. [ Gallup poll]

Even Big Business out polls them.

The American voter, though known as patently ignorant, is not stupid.  Again and again, they wonder how their elected representatives could be so calloused to their needs and concerns.

This Congress, and several of its predecessors, has abdicated all responsibility and authority – both political and moral.

Perhaps the lips of the corpse trembles and the embalmer’s mirror fogs, but the body is as dead as a Texas Armadillo on Interstate 10.

Continuing to accommodate the socialists’ headlock on our nation, Obama’s secular monarchy, and this congress are endangering our Republic, even democracy itself.

What was once a decent and great deliberative body has become a duplicitous, baleful, non-representative, embarrassing and uncaring bowery of whores, and a destructive coating on the people’s trust – the government of the United States of America is now nothing short of a political brothel.

In a democracy, the responsibility of the people towards governments also permits them an input to those governments. [Citizens] should always be prepared to contend for justice, truth and liberty. Where these are threatened and the threat goes unchecked, the world will be made all the darker, and the affairs of men made all the more godless. [Cranmer]

Intrinsic to a free republic – above all other forms of government – is the importance of each individual as created and endowed by God. That republic is chartered, by the people, to allow for its own interrogation,  correction, and chastisement – each of these is necessary from time to time, as a result of man’s fallen and corrupted nature.

It does so by emphasizing that powerful officers of government are accountable to the people (apparently anathema to the politician’s worldview). It is human to screw up, national governments subject to the will of a fallible electorate can, and do, make mistakes, but they are able to rectify their mistakes … and so they maintain and perpetuate their fiduciary responsibilities.

When they refuse, a spirit of tyranny supplants freedom and liberty,  and totalitarianism, in all its perverted and virulent forms, like mold, begins to grow. Everything in the people’s lives comes under the control of one federal authority, opposition is not tolerated, to question those in authority is treason, and to open corruption to the light is heretical.

To the Supreme Court I say, the American people are angry. They are humbly beseeching you, the only organ of our constitutional republic whose bed sheets remain unsullied by the sordid disclosures of recent years, to intervene, in your role as protectors of the Rule of Law, in order to preserve the peace and security of our Republic.

The people’s House of Representatives and the people’s Senate have failed them … the Executive branch is a useless bloated pig, whose departments and agencies have become crippled with the gout of their dissipation. You alone in your deliberations can begin to reverse the damages of the past half century of progressive philosophies.

While the free and independent citizens of this land suffer recession and hardship, with hundreds of thousands losing their jobs, their homes, and their businesses, many members of Congress (who purport to represent them) are milching the federal udder, while many others are guilty of deception, profligacy and fraud.

The people have lost confidence in their elected representatives; too many appear arrogant, haughty and detached. They are shameless in their scandal. The reputation of their assembly is sullied, their members are debauched and policies debased. The oath of their office – sworn before God and in the presence of this nations’ citizens – is meaningless.

This patriot beseeches all Americans, of all persuasions, to join together in this new but not so civil war and force a change upon this Congress – and perhaps this president and vice-president.

Any elected or appointed federal official unwilling to support the will of the people and the sovereignty of the states (Tenth Amendment) should resign or be forced from office.

There can be no place in public life for those who’ve shown a disregard  for their obligations to the people. Disgrace and disingenuousness have replaced integrity and trust. Surreptitious greed and outrageous avarice have corrupted this once noble American institution.

More than any time in two centuries plus, our government is in need of honest, fearless and morally upright people. It is time for America to have its Cromwell (who spoke thus to England’s parliament in his day):

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone!

So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!

We feel we can do little more than call upon the people:

In the name of God my fellow citizens, let us rid this land of this ship of fools through the courts and the polls … the sooner the better.


He ain’t finished yet …

July 29, 2010

I’ve been taping and finishing drywall. The walls in the room I’m working on are smooth, no texture. That reminds me of why I love texturing – because it covers a multitude of sins.

I’m no pro so it takes hours to get all of the wrinkles and pits out of the finished surface. You discover your mistakes by shining a hand-held light up the wall with the room dark.

Sort of like God shining His Light on us and finding all our faults, unless we’re covered in the Lamb’s Blood.

… you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

— 1 Peter 1:18-19


Is there a Tiger in our tank …

July 29, 2010

Institutionalizing socialism in our culture is like introducing Tiger Fish into a fresh water lake.

The Tiger eats and eats and eats until it eaten its way through all the other species in the lake – then it turns on its own.

If the current trend of the Obama administration continues, we can expect to see them turn on each other at some point. I can’t wait to see that!


Which will prevail in the end …

July 29, 2010

ATTENTION: Abdicators, Accommodators, and Capitulators –

IF you really believe Islam is a peaceful religion, AND that fanatical Jihadists are in a minority, THEN tell me: in a global struggle for dominance between those two factions, which one do you believe will prevail in the end?

Aha! SO, you’re siding with the faction which wants to destroy your country, your culture, its traditions, your children’s future and kill you.

You okay with that?

Remember, Islam is not truly a religion … it is a secular state within a state.
