Sunday Sermon: To the far left and the far right and all of us in-between.

A Sunday Sermon: To the far left and the far right and all of us in-between.

If we do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy, He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
For if we forgive men when they sin against us, your heavenly Father will also forgive us. But if we do not forgive men their sins, our Father will not forgive us our sins.

There is a tendency for us mortals to think that we are always right, so we tend to grow cross when confronted with honest disagreements. We call one another names like, lefty Lunes, or righty uptighties. Hopefully it is all in good fun with one and other. But when it is not we need to remember the preceding admonitions from the good book. For those of you who have no faith just change the references to God and father to Mother earth or some such thing you will get the picture. I hope some of our Muslim brothers and sisters would remember this, it’s in your book too.

This forgiveness thing; don’t mean that we all have to sit down and have dinner together. Just respect each other’s point of view. The dinner thing is optional. The forgiveness thing is not.

To all those I may have offended in the past, and all those I will offend in the future, I beg your forgiveness. For all those that seek to offend me I forgive you.

Let’s keep the dialog going.

GO HAWKS !

Lefty lunacy: The blind ideology

Lefty lunacy: The blind ideology

Gitmo; a prisoner of war camp on the island of Cuba, used principally for the housing of war detainees in the war on terror, is on the lefts agenda for elimination. The left holds the mistaken belief that this camp is a recruiting tool for a group that they are hard pressed to even admit exist. All of those with their eyes wide open call this group, “Radical Islamic Terrorists” The left seemingly believes that if the western nations would stop antagonizing the peaceful Muslims of the world with this camp they will settle down and stop killing anyone that doesn’t think like they do.

This is not going to happen. The only way the lefty lunes can save themselves, short of war, is to convert to the brand of religion the terrorist are espousing. That will require the lefties to bomb the innocent or kill a bunch of kids for watching TV. Whatever saves their cowardly butts I guess? It’s not too farfetched to say that; don’t they kill babies in their mother’s wombs? They let poor disadvantaged kids in the cities they run kill each other because they are too cowardly to impose a little discipline in the schools that are run by them. I call this the blind Ideology but it may be better described as the cowardly ideology.

The Left seems to love the constitution when the message is freedom to do whatever they please. The concept of personal responsibility is foreign to their understanding of freedom. Free this free that free,free, free. Free love, free school, free milk and cookies for mom and the kids. All this free stuff is paid for by freewheeling tax hiking lunes that have spent the nation into the possession of having to borrow to pay the interest on the national debt.

We are a nation that is in deep debt. The lefts response is to eliminate business education from elementary schools and replace it with sex education. We are a nation that sees its inner city youth killing each other. Our answer, we eliminate discipline in the schools and legalize drugs. You have to be BLIND to not see the correlation.

Today on the news here in the once great State of Washington the progressive Marijuana law has begun to reap a huge spike of overdose calls to the poison control center with children ingesting the drug in the eatables left lying around by the I don’t give a dam parents.

So what did you expect?

Pens, Phones, and Erasers

There is nothing in the constitution that gives lefty agnostics any direct protection from government, but there is protection for religious institutions and persons of faith. So when I read some lefty lunacy on twitter about how folks just need to get over the attacks from the left over our first amendment rights to believe in God, I get a little perplexed. They seem to think the first amendment is all about free speech. If we have to rank according to the order they are articulated in the first amendment, religious freedom comes first on the list. The others are put in there because without them the government could have said you are free to think what you like, but they might stop you from assembling in a church or tell a preacher what he might preach, or prohibit the press from reprinting sermons which was a regular practice back in that day.

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

If you notice the religion thing comes first. The speech thing come second, then the press, then assembly, and it is peaceably assemble. It is not ok to exercise civil disobedience and burn the town down. Assembly is only to petition the government for redress of your grievances. The civil disobedience notion comes from an essay by Henry David Thoreau not Saul Alinsky.

If you had an eighth grade education in the fifties you knew that. Most of the young kids popping off on twitter don’t know who these people are or why this country was founded in the first place.

The liberal Press is about to get a dose of the very social disorder they seem to champion. The attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo is just the first Salvo. The anarchist movement in this country most probably will get around to similar tactics against our news outlets in this country. It will serve some of them right because they are the champions of anarchy.

It seems to this observer that the qualifications to become a constitutional law professor in this country hit rock bottom with the current occupant of the White House. It seems now he is determined to drag the office of the president down the same rat hole. He needs to remember that he may hold the presidential pen and phone, but the people hold the eraser.

Is Social Security going to run out of money?

Is Social Security going to run out of money?

Seems we constantly hear Social Security is running out of money. We never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their benefit, but the second did not. I am a bit tired of the game Congress plays with the entitlement blackmail system.

The con-game works like this; first they make the pronouncement that this or that program is running out of money. Then they offer a fix that will kick the can down the road a generation, but not really fix the problem. By not really fixing the problem they guarantee that this event will resurface in a few years. The congress does this deliberately, in my opinion in order to have a vehicle by which they can attach the boondoggles that we all complain about. Why do we let this happen?

Why in this electronic age do we send our representative to Washington DC in the first place? Why can’t we give them offices in the state capitals and they could vote online and meet online. We the people could do our own lobbying. They could make their deals with us. I would be willing to bet there would be a lot less pork in the budget

We could better control the national purse if the federal representatives were paid by the individual states. Each state could make rules restricting lobbing to those their representative is elected to represent. Would that end a lot of the D C shenanigans? We insist the states balance their budgets maybe that should rub off on the feds.

Why is Washington D.C. located on the east coast anyway? Should it not be located somewhere in the middle of the country? It’s downright unfair that the folks on the east coast have ready access to our representatives and we on the west coast don’t. It seems to me that in the age of missiles and nut case terrorist that it might be safer some place in the middle. How about this: The white house gets moved to say Nebraska. The Senate to the west coast and leave the representatives in their respective states. Just something to think about.

Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, denying pay raises for our military, and reducing our army to a level that is lower than before WWII? Why are we not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?
It may be time to really shake up Washington D. C. That long talked about constitutional convention Might just be in order.

Lefty lunacy The magic ideology

Lefty lunacy The magic ideology

We are advised not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

Communism becomes socialism becomes progressivism. As soon as the public gets on to an ism they change the language the aim stays the same. The aim is to enslave us. They intend that we the people should be a rubberstamp for the excesses of the human condition.

The poor in America are the instrument by which the middle class are to be enslaved. The left uses the poor to soften the hearts of a doddering American electorate. There are no “poor in America”. The average American has never seen the poor. The average poor person in this country can get, food, shelter, medical, a free phone, clothing, and legal help, and never work a day to get it. It is the middle class worker that has to struggle for these things.

The straw that is really breaking the back of the middle class is OBAMA CARE, Affordable Care Act, and whatever else they decide to name it. I have already been smacked with this one. The rest of you are about to be face planted by the cost of this albatross.

By April 15 the first shutters of realization will sweep over the nation. Those that have stuck their heads in the sand will be blasted into the realization that medical care is not free and never will be. The other guy can’t pay for it all. The I R S will stick its gun in your faces and say GIMME SOME!

What can we do? We could recall every politician that voted for this boondoggle. We could start calling the whack jobs and letting it rip at them. Oh no I tried that. They won’t take our calls or answer an email unless you are a big donor. I did get in to see my representative but he just pulled the old guilt trip on me. His mother you know died of cancer. Well so did my great grandpa. We all have that story to tell. Some of us had affordable insurance all ready and now we can’t afford what the government wants to shove down our throats. I haven’t had a vacation in twenty years but I had Health insurance for me and my family.

Lefty lunacy The magic ideology has taken care of our hopes for that vacation for the for seeable future.
