The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
So they cried out, Away with HIM, away with Him! Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered< We have no king but Caesar. John 1:15
Marxism is the most inhuman religions ever invented. For the Marxist fundamentalist, he not only follows his doxology stridently, but he believes everyone else should adhere to his beliefs as well. When you peel away the good feelings of the liberal cult you are going to find nothing more than a list of laws and dictates to control their world. Unfortunately for the nonbeliever their world includes the air and water.
Karl Marx developed a political and socio-economic system during the late 1900s which believed society was too greedy and needed to work for the common good. He believed you could take the profit motive or greed out of self interest and whole communities would work for their community equally. It was a noble yet naïve theory which when put in practice has proven just the opposite. He did not understand that the basic motivating factor for an individual was too make his life more and more comfortable and to become a better provider and eventually wealthy. This motivation of the individual actually improves the community as individuals all work harder and more efficiently as they try to make their lives more comfortable.
Conversely, what has been proven over and over is when people are not rewarded for their effort they will not strive to improve the community. What actually takes place is a slowing down of the community as the people realize they will be more comfortable by doing less and having the community take care of their basic needs. They find that they receive more than the effort they put in which is actually a form of greed as they become more sedentary to maintain the lifestyle they once had to work for. This slowing of production and effort actually harms the community as less and less is produced while more and more of that production becomes strained. Marxism does nothing to improve the community since it taxes the producers and gives them less and less incentive to produce. It actually harms the community as it destroys the will to work by minimizing or eliminating the reward to work. This forced the American Marxists to take a different tact.
After the mid-century Marxist failures of Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, Mussolini and Roosevelt; communism had a bad image and the Marxists had to figure out a way to get people to accept their inferior economic structure. This is when they began the idolizing of communist dictators like Lenin and Castro and vilifying everything that had to do with capitalism. The Three Pillars of Marxism (the media, academia and the DNC) began their religious doxology to force people to follow their Marxist beliefs. Some of the earliest ones was the evils of the auto and gas and then moved on from one vilification to the next.
Everything America said or did was considered evil and whatever a communist gummit said or did was glorified up through the Vietnam War when they made America the monster for protecting South Vietnam sovereignty while acting as if North Vietnam was the defender when in reality they were the invader. That is when the Marxist took over the dialogue in this country and began to own the discussion.
They have now perfected the verbal Gulag as they virtually exile anyone who does not adhere to the Three Pillars philosophy in lockstep. Anyone who dares to question liberalism is mocked and vilified for weeks until they are exiled from the public discourse or pleads forgiveness of their crime against the state. This serves a dual purpose as we are witnessing with the Koch brothers who have done more for the community than any hundred Marxists, but are outcasts in their own country as it stops other contributors from giving for fear of the same treatment. You will never hear any condemnation of liberal contributors, only the continual destruction of Conservative dollars as a warning to what will happen to anybody who dares dissent.
You now see them going to the ultimate extremes against anyone who dares to oppose homosexual marriage. If you are for homosexual marriage you are given sainthood and a very tolerant person. There is no higher throne in Marxist doxology than tolerance which makes you godlike in their religion. Intolerance is an unforgivable sin in their basic tenants unless of course it is intolerance of dissent and then there is given an exception to allow the public humiliation of a heretic. You must tolerate every race, sex, lifestyle and deviant behavior or you will be labeled a hater. The only group that society is allowed to hate and even encouraged to not tolerate is Christians who are intolerant of others so must be sent to the gulag.
Like all religious zealots they require that everyone follow their religion while mocking religions that contradict their beliefs. Now that they are in charge of this country they have installed a Theocracy which worships the earth and lists the laws in their doxology you are required to follow or be sent to their gulag. These laws are Global Warming consensus belief, America and capitalism is the root of all evil, racism is prevalent especially with those that disagree and of course homosexuality is a healthy lifestyle. The list goes on and on and is added to regularly when they need to promote an agenda or more dissenters need to be sent to the virtual gulags.
We now see the results of this religious zealotry with a Marxist country which is declining the natural way the human spirit would expect to decline. As the rewards are diminished while the producers are stressed the community falls into more and more deterioration as the society crumbles into oblivion. There was no way the people would go along with this communist moonscape so they bided their time while they installed a archaic cult and had people become worshipers of their religion. They now march lockstep together as fellow cultists receiving good feelings for being godlike in their tolerance and intolerance. These gods have determined who is allowed on the main street and who will be shipped on the cattle cars and since they have all the halls of power, the trains are filled with dissenters of their fundamental doxology. On this Easter, most of America will either be celebrating the Risen Savior or Karl Marx.
Pray America wakes up

Wow what a wonderful photo for Easter Sunday! Thanks AB.
Happy Easter to all Freepers.
Rather lack-luster line-up today.
It was a noble yet naïve theory which when put in practice has proven just the opposite. He did not understand that the basic motivating factor for an individual was too make his life more and more comfortable and to become a better provider and eventually wealthy. This motivation of the individual actually improves the community as individuals all work harder and more efficiently as they try to make their lives more comfortable.
Great stuff.The war moves on. Let's hope our elected bozos don't self destruct before November.
Thanks for thread A.B. Happy Easter.
Morning AB, All....
Whew....Easter vigil last night lasted two hours. Daughter and granddaughter went. Granddaughter used to the Catholic unusualness but daughter said the baptisms weren’t really necessary.
Already walked over to daughter’s house, watched granddaughter find her Easter basket, delivered my Easter presents...clothes.
Now back home, peace and quiet. They will walk over for dinner around 3pm.
This is how it should be.
Thank you AB for doing this thread, even on Easter.
Jesus Christ is risen today!
thanks, for the ping(s), AB!
It's a wonderful morning. He is risen!
Yes it is. What is the meme for this week?
Russia and the Ukraine, obviously.
Easter? Two Cardinals? Catholic issues? Going after the cardinals for not promoting homosexuality and women priests, or not changing their Pro-Life stance to allowing abortion?
What else? Corker and Murphy? Corker wants to arm the Ukraine. Politics? Who will “win” the Senate.
Washerwoman-Slutz will obviously exude democrat talking points.
John Paul Stevens will promote his book trashing the Bill of Rights and his ideas as what our rights should actually be.
The two ambassadors? Who knows what Fat Candy wants them for, but it will have little to do with the actual news that is happening. She has Walsh on to promote his candidacy for reelection.
Why is Devil Patrick on AGAIN? Nothing he says is newsworthy. He’s being promoted by Incontinent Bob.
The Kenyan Dog-eater telling RATs not to run away from or be defensive of ObamaCare in their elections this fall.
Heh, heh, heh.
Evan Bayh saying the RATs have to “pivot”....Oh boy, do they ever know how to do that.
G Willikers saying since the tax (that is Obamadon’tCare) did not originate in the House, so the whole thing may well be unConstitutional.
Bayh stating that when Americans discover the premium costs, they will no longer support the RAT ticket.
Yup, but Miss mayonnaise head is in the lineup. She has better things to do than go to an Easter service.
Why is Devil Patrick on AGAIN?
It was exactly this way when Bernadine Dohrn came back from her trip to see Castro in the 1970s. It was then that Fidel (passing along a message from Andropov, then KGB chairman) told her to quit bombing America and, instead, go home and find a black presidential candidate who could pass himself off as respectable while “shaming” guilt-ridden whites to vote for him.
So full of this directive was Dohrn that she literally grabbed a black kid who happened to be seated near her at a leftie meeting (in Michigan, I think) and said something like, “We should be promoting him,” to the predominantly white American leftie apparat who filled the room.
As we all know, about 25 years later in Chicago Dohrn found her man, just as Fidel had dictated, and the rest is infamy.
As the Demoviks scramble to figure out who to build the next personality cult around, there are going to be those (in the media and elsewhere) who will stick with the “shame the whites” strategy. At this point, it’s an oldie but goodie and millions are sure to swallow it.
Deval Patrick is the right color. End of story.
Graham for the win.
Similarly, it seems that Pryor in Arkansas has taken a slight lead over Cotton.
Landreau is polling better in Louisiana.
At least, according to the media.
The Senate may not change majority rule. Many Republicans thought they had it in 2012, and didnt. Same may be happening again in 2014.
Incumbency is always difficult to run against.
It's a double header, the Washrag and the chimp named Dave are busy dialing-for-nausea over at NBC. Traveling at 65 LPM (lies per minute)
Traveling at 65 LPM (lies per minute)
And the brutal irony is that there has never been a nation where the truth and facts are more readily available than America in the Internet age.
The most open society turns out to be the most effectively propagandized. Stalin has to be pondering this in Hell. Go figure.
Doesn't matter. I do not expect the Supremes to rule anything the government wants to do as unconstitutional. Obeying the Constitution is predicated on the fact that Congress can do anything as long as it is called a tax.
Great post...had to laugh at “daughter said the baptisms werent really necessary.”...good for you to keep the faith alive! Secularism has had its effects and this generation and the next needs faith more than ever.
Pulitzer - Snowden.
It is difficult to say whether Snowden is a villain or hero. He did explose another big lie of the Obama Administration [of a program that actually started under the GWBush Administration] about the government spying on US citizens. He did reveal some of how the government operates covertly.
Most other major nations also spy. Spying is as old as the history of mankind.
Too much information helps the national enemies.
Recall the day after the 9-11 attacks and Senator Orin Hatch rushing to a mic to tell FoxNews that ‘we’ were tracking Bin Laden’s satellite phone. Afterwhich, that phone went dead.
But when we see the militarily outfitted BLM challenging a rancher and his family over cattle grazing and a endangered tortoise, it causes us ‘domestic terrorists’ to reevaluate.
The people on this thread show no respect SIG.
Sometimes I sniff my disdain.
I'm sure he said nary a word when Pinchy Sulzberg (NYT) gave away the store regarding intelligence gathering secrets and top secret information in order to seriously undermine the Bush administration (and the rest of us) during the height of the War on Terrorism.
Since this is a large portion of the RAT agenda, I believe Snowden may well be a deliberate plant, an Obama/RAT agent put out there to further damage US credibility and to further demonize the Bush Administration and the vile and hated Cheney.
Happy Easter Freeps! He is Risen!
Keep up the great work skin...I can’t stay away from the chocolate Easter bunny.Ears and Head are gone now part of the body.I will save the tail for someone else.....Maybe Dingy Harry....
It is difficult to say whether Snowden is a villain or hero.
Those in the know might one day present direct evidence that an operation al Qaeda kept offline succeeded for going dark in response to Snowden’s revelations.
As an illustration, the Chechen Boston bombers certainly succeeded in part by remaining offline as they plotted their attack. I doubt they’d have succeeded otherwise.
But I’m fairly sure they were specifically trained to stay offline back in Chechnya. Most “smart” terror operations understood long ago that NSA was listening in.
What I can’t do is feel any empathy for the Obama admin when it lamented the loss of assets Snowden caused.
If Obama wanted “intelligence victories” he’d have left it out of the public record that bin Laden was dead. He would have wiped out him and his Paki base, grabbed the computers, and started “running” al Qaeda from Langley.
A president who thinks and acts THAT way is welcome to my phone records.
I’ll give them up (happily) if the cause is victory. It’s not as if anyone is asking us to work third shift in a munitions plant.
I don't know if they have to.
I've heard talk recently on FR that that is exactly why Roberts did what he did, and that he could foresee CA-RATs and other RAT-voters whacking-out about the high premiums and no benefits...can't find a doctor etc.
(Nyuck nyuck nyuck!)
I love my Pope, really I do.
But this thing about helping the “poor”, taking from the wealthy and giving to the downtrodden, it’s just all wrong.
This is not 1590. People are not walking around dripping pus as leprosy devours them. Little girls are not selling matches on frozen street corners.
And I know that the Catholic church gives more money to aid humankind than any government or religion on earth. As member of the finance council part of my job is to help distribute 10% of our collection to local charities. We’re damn strict about it too, but every month just my church is distributing over four grand and that doesn’t include St. Vincent de Paul.
Where are these people wearing rags in the freezing cold, selling matches to the warmed? To hear the pope they’re everywhere.
It’s a message from five hundred years ago. Sorry, but beloved Francis needs to take a stand against or fore something germane TODAY! He could maybe take a stab at good ole Putin, just for starters.
It’s my story and I’m sticking to it no matter how many Catholics I make mad.
The biggest topic of course is this:
Nine western states want to take back land now managed by our big communist government.
I can just here the regimes response now:
We’ll we have to study that and we will get back to you after say November.....
so, Roberts essentially put the Congress in the vise grips of public opinion to redo, reset the failure.
That is what is happening now. There will be a new congress acting on perhaps three rulings. The Presidnt will say.... I tried but the court destroyed all our good work
Win/win = win
She’s probably afraid she would get booed the minute she walked through the doors...Either that or get struck by lightning....
Hey Rod, you and Pat should have coffee.
You could talk "fish".
You are red hot today buddy.Must be the Easter candy....
Where are these people wearing rags in the freezing cold, selling matches to the warmed?
My personal strategy for ending the welfare state is to cut everybody off from all of it and then wait to see who shows up starving or freezing or hobbling and take it from there on a case by case basis.
You want disability?
Lemme see you crawling along the sidewalk looking for bread crumbs and I’ll think about it.
Not very Christian an approach?
(Well, I’d say that’s arguable but...)
Especially when you have a suicidal GOPe running the show.
Granddaughter was in my church’s Christmas play. She is not Catholic, nor is daughter, no son-in-law. Because they live across the street from me, they are often involved in some fashion with my church.
Many are trying to coax Melissa-daughter- to become Catholic but I don’t see it working. Granddaughter, on other hand, knows all the Catholic hyms, she sings with the choir, she was a Wise Man and Elizabeth in the Christmas pageant and , I say modestly, was best of all.
Granddaughter knows everybody, she regularly dips the holy water and does sign of cross, she holds her hands high and says the Lord’s prayer, proudly.
She’s a little Catholic girl as one can plainly see and I don’t think it will leave her.
Daughter is Christian, very much, but was involved with Baptist church in Baltimore, very involved.
The Catholic church just has no appeal. She only went to Easter vigil with me because I asked her to, didn’t want to go alone. Kaitlyn usually goes to church with me but the Vigil, with the candles, the firepit, singing in the choir, I just couldn’t take her alone.
Which is no mind, just idle chatter as I sit in the quiet before all the storms come in.
And Father Jim was sure in his glory, singing all the priest parts, congratulating everybody, lighting candle, blow out candle, light it again. I’m mad at him for saying the choir talks too much before masses-which we do.
So he makes a big deal of telling us how wonderful we were. Then there was the baptism, then the first communion, all this on Easter vigil.
I also sang on Holy Thursday AND Good Friday. Father Jim stops during processional to light KAITLYN’s candle and all of a sudden Kaitlyn got scared....
....It was nice, I am not complaining, but I been thinking about all things Catholic of late.
And reasonable premiums and provider availability will return to normal or even better than before, and the voters will say:
"You and the RATs tried to kill us! NO THANK YOU!"
I have posted numerous times in the last few years that the current admin can make up anything and are never challenged or really fact-checked by the press. Whenever the Admin needs some positive information, they make it up. Many FR threads call it Obama’s fun-with-numbers. They just pull them out of their rears.
Need 7% unemployment? No problem, wallah! Look - unemployment just dropped.
Need 1 million or 7.1 million signees to Obamacare? No problem wallah! Look - so many people are rushing to sign up that they broke the website.
The compliant media not only cover for the Obama people, they help clarify the talkingpoints
“NEEDED: Skilled disinformation officers. Former KGB encouraged to apply! Knowledge of AP stylebook helpful.”
Trouble is zero has shall we say colored,muddied or darkened the water for any future demovik black to run for potus which would be suicidal.Now for our side that’s a whole different equation....
Two: Even if true, expect a percentage of any fighting force to want to continue with last year’s way of battle.
In short: I’m not ruling out a black Demovik candidate in 2016.
David Brooks just said Obama has a manhood problem in the middle east!
NOt likely since she’s about a thousand miles from my driveway....and I hate cold weather....
So, as far as Il Papa reiterating this, there should be no rebuttal from us. It is a COMMANDMENT we should follow.
However, He did not say this was the GOVERNMENT'S job to do this. In fact, it is a commandment for all of us, as individuals, to follow. How do I know? His words:
31And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. 32And all nations shall be gathered together before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.
34Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: 36Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me. 37Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, and fed thee; thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38And when did we see thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and covered thee? 39Or when did we see thee sick or in prison, and came to thee? 40And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.
Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. 43I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. 44Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee? 45Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. 46And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting.
The next Republican President will be scrutinized(media-enema) by the MSM because of the remorse factor for covering for O’Bastard. They will do this to regain their credibly. / cynicism
Further, let them come to the city council to beg, and then let them live at the "town farm".
Welfare is best distributed at the local level, as the locals know the truly-needy from the bums.
Make vagrancy illegal.
Now, I sentence you to a year at the town farm, or until you get a job, or just get the hell out of my town.
