The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
He ordered the centurion to keep Paul under guard but to give him some freedom and permit his friends to take care of his needs. Acts 24:23
America has become two separate countries or actually three. We have one side that wants to stay a free and open country, a second which wants to be a Soviet style communist State and the group in the middle who dont care. Throughout history we have had two types of people, those who want to take care of themselves and those who want to be taken care of. Those who will accept a certain amount of risk and those who wont and these are the two groups who are fighting it out. The bad part of being in a democracy is those who want to live under state control and a Soviet style of gummit can simply vote those who do not into being their subjects.
The liberal mindset not only has been brainwashed into believing they cannot succeed without the state programs they will not accept any risks in their jobs or retirements. The public worker has become a protected ruling class who no longer has to be concerned with economics or other peoples conditions. Their jobs are guaranteed as is their retirement and benefits by those subjects living in the outer circle. Since this is an easy sell as a politician they have built a solid voting Soviet class of people who are willing and eager to subjugate the rest of the people to their preferred lifestyle.
We have an entire class of people who are so worried about their own self interest and need to avoid risk they are willing and able to enslave the rest of the country. Once we reach the point we are at there is no escaping chronic unemployment and poverty. We will have decades of the current real unemployment rate which will continue to hover in the twenty percent realm. When you reward people for not working while punishing others for working with taxes, Obamacare and excessive regulations you are destined to encourage higher and higher unemployment. The final piece to the financial disaster is an education system and media which encourages the communistic lifestyle and vilifies the free market individualistic society. People who are self motivators are painted as evil greedy monsters who only make their money by stealing from the poor. They are never promoted or congratulated for a job well done but are vilified just like the Stalinists of old Russian who were always hating and purging the Bourgeois.
The risk adverse mindset is as foreign to the self achiever as the self achiever is to the public employee. In the old days the public workers would give up current pay for the understanding they would have a payoff when they retired. Those days are past as the public employee makes nearly double what the risk takers make and have a guaranteed pension which far exceeds anything in the private sector. They have managed to control every facet of the decision making process through unionization and taking over the media, academics and bureaucracies. They now own the halls of power by working their way inside all of the most critical positions of decision making. They have become a giant circle of propaganda and gummit rule which now only has to convince enough people they care about them or scare them into submission to maintain their power and control.
What we have now are the people who are happy to be cattle in feedlots forcing those who want to be productive to not be productive. They are forcing the ambitious people to live in feeder lots with them whether they want to run on the range free like buffalo or not. The feedlot class believe and in a way they know they will be taken care of the rest of their lives and are not willing to give up that security under any circumstances. They have been told they can never succeed on their own so even if they wanted to they would not risk the chances of losing their safe existence by going against the common thought around them. So they will support more regulations, more private sector destruction and deeper enslavement so their jobs in this overgrown cattle company will continue to flourish.
When George Bush Jr was President and the unemployment rate was running under 4% the Japanese economy had an unemployment rate of over 12% as did the rest of the Socialist world and just as we do now. The cost of Socialism is high unemployment to pay for the expanded gummit jobs. Either the money will flow to the programs or salaries reflected in running those programs or the private sector will have a chance to expand. Under George Bush the jobs expanded and we had a seven year recovery until we expanded DC and are still suffering through the malaise we will have until if and when things change.
Now America has a problem, the cattle are in charge and forcing us all to live in the feeder pens whether we want to or not. It is their job now to make sure we stay in those pens and have little or no chance of escaping them. They have the control and the votes to make that happen for the rest of our lives and the only way we can escape is to beat them at their own game. We need to convince the third group that living inside those pens is a subsistence existence with continually high unemployment with little or no fulfillment in life. Between them and us we have enough people to overthrow the cattle class but it is going to take a huge effort against some very powerful forces placed in some extremely strong positions. This is going to take some hard work, determination and new ideas outside of the medias control. There is a path to full employment and George Bush was on it briefly before the people in power on both sides pulled the rug out from under him and put us in the Godless communist canyon we find ourselves in now. We need to get back on the Bush path to freedom.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily my own, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Thanks for thread A.B. Peyton Manning sure had a bad day.
Most of these people make me sick.
If I could jump through the screen, I would kick mcchrystal in his head with both feet. Ditto powell.
I’m sick of them all!!
It’s oily in de moanin’
And I ain’t got nothin but de blues
Gun Grabber warning from Charlie Daniels:
A picture is worth a thousand words. Look at the picture below and guess: is this the aftermath of a bunch of makers or takers?
Answer: takers, after a riot at a Section 8 voucher distribution in Taylor, MI, Sat, Jan 12, 2013.
5000 takers lined up for 1000 taxpayer paid Section 8 housing vouchers. In the end, nobody got nothin' as the takers could not behave themselves and the distribution was canceled.
Wow, where is everyone?
I’m off to church....
Let's get this straight. The government gives away free money - in substantial quantities. The only criterion for getting the money is to be standing in the right place in the line. There is no line control. And people are surprised there's a riot?
I slept in, and I see I didn’t miss much.
You need to start getting us a better Sunday morning line up of guests! LoL
If McCain ever said anything ‘new’ that would make Sunday morning news program history.
Looks like the morning topic was evils guns. [You know they are even worse than those evil SUVs and evil incandescent light bulbs.]
Kelly Ayotte is one of our best spokes’persons’ these days, and she does another great job on FNS, discussing Hagel’s nomination. She stresses we should not have policies that make Iran’s leaders smile!
Mark Steyn’s column on the Hagel nomination is essential reading to really get the true background on this debacle.
**If you had buttonholed me in the Senate men’s room circa 2003 and told me that a decade hence Joe Biden would be America’s vice president, John Kerry Secretary of State, and Chuck Hagel Secretary of Defense, I’d have laughed and waited for the punch line:...**
Brilliant as usual bray.Had to be repeated. Until the new media can overtake the old msm/dbm and our side counters the made up agenda/issues of the hard left its gonna be a long slow trog to get rid of the commies.
All we can do is laugh now. FNS has Bob Woodward on as an expert on military activity in Afghanistan. Not only old media but old men. The panelists Woodward and Kristol look like the old men muppets in the balcony. Their commentary is just as meaningful.
LOL MM!! I go through more tv’s by throwing stuff.....
Your stuff on Benghazi just keeps getting better and better all the time. Anyone not on your ping list for Benghazi should join its second to none.Here is the latest thread.
We had a time change down here in S.Fla. on NBC. We get MTP at 10:00 (Eastern) the rest at 10:30 and FNC at 2:00 pm.
Sad times we are all enduring....
Bitch Bayh just stated that given a Chuck Hagel Secdef, the final decisions would rest with the almighty obama.
Nobody asked, “You mean like they were with Fast and Furious and Bengazi?
I got up early....for me and am watchin DNC Dave
my God in heaven...these shows are nuthin but the political version o THE MODERN FAMILY
Sperm Burpin wad gobblers....YEAH
and Anal Powell.....an angel from heaven
it is blasphmous squared in your face
Larry Pratt on the other hand was not trying to reach those low information voters and he succeeded. His talking points, no more gun control laws and eliminate the gun free zones, were not articulated clearly. We're lucky he was on Fox News Sunday and Chris Wallace took it easy on him.
He's wondering what is the Republicans role in this "divided government" stuff.
The answer is checks and balances moron.
I think it was Bill Kristol who made the most relevant point regarding the WH (Biden, in particular) and what will come of the gun-control issue:
‘Anything they propose/pass would not have stopped the events at Newtown.’
[If I think about it after Alas posts the links to the transcripts, I will search the transcript for the exact comment.]
They watch FNS as often as I watch ET. Ie, Never.
I'm watching DNC dave and colin powell tell us all just what a great choice hegel is.Just too good. Two commies promoting yet another.
It is hard to watch these shows especially on something like gun control. It is simply Repubs want to kill your kids while the angelic DNC wants to protect you. More massive brainwashing.

How to Sleep Better
How Light Affects Our Sleep
marksdailyapple.com has some other articles too, just havent read them yet, but it also recommends a free computer program to to cut down on blue light emissions, basically it turns a light shade of orange at night.
Better lighting...for your computer
and its evident the politics is going to be going the Democrats way(worse economy) so I am busy buying toilet paper, spaghettio's, setting up a basic work shop, and looking for a cheap used car(a spare, as they are not going to get any cheaper).
And I am not going to get depressed or anxiety, we freepers knew the worst case possibilities and now just have to deal with it.
21 degress outside makes the shoulder hurt but I’m A Ok ...my intruder however is missin an ear
I SAID HE IS MISSIN AN EAR......lolol
these shows are just unwatchable and BTW...wow was the football entertain’n yesterday
republicans ?...I spit on both of em
where is anyone sayin what you and I know is the truth
Bambi has more rights that us in a queer lovin libs mind
colin powell on mtp saying he is rino and its the only way to go. We have to become rino libs if we want any power any more.
He’s non-existent IMHO and should be thrown out of the party.
He hates birthers he’s done, IMHO.
Claims he’s a moderate republican!That’s code for hard core lefty.
Colin Powell, who, for the right money, will say whatever one pays for....
....he says Hiullary did so many good things that Benghazi won’t hurt her.
FOUR AMERICANS DIED!!!!
If that ain’t enough to dim your reputation than what is?
Yes why is the gaff master Biden is out front on every issue nowadays, the recent budget negotiations too? He seems a good con man to sell their message, as he talks aggressively as if he knows what he is talking about.
But we know the whole Democrat socialist government agenda is a seriously flawed outcome, as the economy is still being talked about as in ‘recovery’ when we left that business cycle almost 4 years ago. The recession/depression/gaffs are sure to cycle too...
I’m glad you are doin’ OK! I wish I had time for football too busy building fishing rods.
Ok, what am I missing, because I hear it all the time. Just what good things has Hillary done? Other than just saying it, what do they cite as her accomplishments?
I been reading so much about Hillary lately and let me say right now, something ain’t right.
But first, you ask what has she done as SecState?
I hear the woman rides on airplanes all over the world and that’s pretty much it.
And I’m sorry, if it’s not nice to judge by appearances, tough.
That woman looks like crap every time she steps outside and please don’t tell me she’s too busy, she has no courtesans to take care of her.
YES SHE DOES!
She’s the freaking Secretary of State.
Frankly I think something’s seriously wrong with the woman.
No normal woman would go out in public looking like she does, particularly any normal woman with the eyes of the world on her.
Something ain’t right and she’s been a perfectly mediocre Stec of State.
Stephy brought with him a typical attitude that NRA types are wrong and intransigent. And he gave 'em short shrift, since they apparently wouldn't agree.
he called it a bump in the road....I loathe the POS....always have
Where is the proof that Liberal Repubs win elections? Never works as President or Congress. Why do we have to do what the so called experts who always lose say?
Pray for America
Meanwhile in Chicago this story.
Chicago police chief says that personal carry license holders will be shot just like everyone else. He has a great attitude.No wonder he has more murders than we had in Afghanistan.
also..Andrea Bitch Mitchell said Obambi is goin for the guns......all of em.....and by the end of this month....she was so excited she was “ wet “
Seems Benghazi is all over(except for the New Media) little said on any of the big three so far.....
MTP Panel; one obvious talking point the panel missed when talking about the lack of women in the photo of important people in the Obama administration is that, since Obama pays women so much less than he pays men, appointing more women to higher positions could be construed as a cost-cutting move.
my ole addage.....listen to what you don’t hear...Admiral Lyons just broke that dam.....and WANTS to testify
BehGhazyi is gonna EXPLODE and they know it
I agree. It’s almost 11am EST and there’s not a lot going on.
