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.


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.


DOJ accused of dissing absentee mil-voters again …

July 28, 2010

The Department of Justice is ignoring a new law aimed at protecting the right of American soldiers to vote, according to two former DOJ attorneys.

Fox has the story. H/T Talking Points Memo.

For as long as I can remember we’ve cheated our uniformed men and women deployed overseas no matter who was in the White House. This is as shameful as the Arlington National Cemetery scandal.


Our flag is still flying …

July 28, 2010

Whether intended or not, the Obama administration’s decisions this past year have dampened the hopeful expectations of most Americans and  plundered the wealth of generations to come.

Granted I’m sensing this in comments on the Internet yet the pessimistic strains are still there.

Well, cheer up folks, we’re still one really great country, our flag is still flying and is still worth every ounce of blood we can give it. After all, the liberals and progressives are just flesh & blood.


Gifted in that way …

July 28, 2010

In times like these, “followers” may try to rally the troops all they want but if their neighbors are a part of the problem, they’ll not be motivated to do anything about something they don’t see as wrong.

Yet, “leaders” can – they are gifted in that way.

I suspect instead of followers trying to recruit more leaderless followers we should try finding those leaders among us for whom our neighbors (not part of the problem) would arise to the occasion.

American history is replete with wonderful examples of gifted individuals who rose to lead others to a greater cause than themselves … and Obama is not one.


Conformity not uniformity …

July 28, 2010

Uniformity is neither just nor equitable, and cannot be achieved in a free society.
