“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Luke 2:16-18

Merry Christmas has become offensive to most Marxists since it has two words they never abide. Has anyone ever met a happy liberal? They are the most brooding Debbie Downers under the sun and require everyone to be just like them or else. Even a simple Merry Christmas is supposed to make everyone feel guilty that someone may be offended by the friendly greeting. What really bothers them is it is Christmas represents the capitalistic model which they must destroy.

Capitalism requires Christians or at least Judeo Christian ethics as its basic building block. It requires people to keep their word no matter what which is the glue that holds it together. When someone at the end of the production chain makes a sell he has to be sure the person who purchased the item will agree to pay and he has to perform the good or service he has provided. This requires a trust in both parties they will keep their word and their word is trustworthy.

Without the trust someone will provide what they said you then have to bring in lawyers and contracts making the agreement far more complicated and expensive. The entire process slows down as lawyers poke holes in every piece of the sell and grinds it to a halt by replacing a person’s word with a binding contract.

Marxism replaces an army of lawyers with an all-powerful gummit which decides every part of the production line from a centralized structure like the District of Corruption which moves farther and farther away from the transaction. A person’s word is replaced with law, tax and regulations which slow down the transaction even more than lawyers grinding the industry to a halt as bureaucrats write law after law trying to predict supply and demand which is impossible. Obamacare is an example of the gummit trying to replace the flexible insurance industry with a bureaucracy which is far less flexible and far more costly than free enterprise. People are feeling the results with $10-15,000 per year premiums for terrible coverage.

Marxists hate Christmas since it represents everything they are not. They have no hope or joy, only a slow trudge through negativity to an empty end. They have convinced themselves evolution is true even though they have no proof whatsoever to back that claim. When confronted they only shout fossil record as if it means anything since the fossil record proves just the opposite and verifies a onetime event that all the animals began around the same time fully developed. When you do the research they have one supposedly transitory bird which has been highly questioned since it is more likely a bird they claim is a lizard, yet they have not found any other of those bird/lizards in the area. It was a bird and they have no proof.

So the liberal Grinches have to trudge through Christmas trying to make it as miserable as their lives are for fears anyone may accidently enjoy themselves. They have to convince everyone Christmas is offensive and causes micro-happiness which must be shut down. They need everyone to stop being happy and just endure life while they convince themselves there is no God or Jesus and that Marxism could actually work if we could just turn more of our lives over to their government god like they have to have a shared misery.

The problem with Marxists is none of their beliefs actually are provable. They want to prove man is a godlike creature when it has been proven over and over he is not. They want to disprove God with evolution so bad, yet after 150 years they have only proven evolution does not work and there are such massive gaps in the chain which they cannot explain without the word miraculous destroying their theory. There is no explanation why man came up with a communication skill, let alone the ability to read and no scientist on this earth can explain how you can translate the words you are reading into thoughts, it is another miracle how the eye and brain coordinate. Meanwhile the Marxist has to believe it just occurred randomly, see 1 in a quadrillion happening millions of times; to maintain their worldview.

The Christian has an easier path to joy, hope and a Merry Christmas. He only has to look around and see those mysteries can only be solved by an all-powerful God who created as the Bible explains. A Christian can look at that 1 in a quadrillion chance of the eye being able to translate figures on a screen into words and eventually thoughts and realize how amazing God is to be able to create this ability. He can look at the tree or a bird and realize there is no explanation which fits other than God said let there be creatures and there were animals of all interconnecting types including his failed creature he loves, man.

He then gave Moses the Ten Commandments to live by and built the foundation for society to live and commerce to be transacted. Those Ten Commandments are the basis of one man agreeing to provide a good or service and the other man agreeing to pay for it and not lying. He then saw how evil man was by not living up to those Commandments and gave man the way to start over through his perfect Salvation sending his Son as man to the earth as a blood sacrifice. This is the hope Christians have around the world and why they are especially Merry this time of year. No matter how good or bad the last year was they know they have Salvation through Christ and hope for the future.

This is the difference between Christians and the world or Marxism. Christians can look around and see miracle after miracle which has no explanation and understand God could only make it with his endless knowledge and power. They know the deeper you look the more it points to a merciful God which could only reach us one way which was through a baby to become one of his creations who could point the way. He showed perfection could be achieved through man and then was killed as the perfect sacrifice to God. With this knowledge comes hope and joy by seeing God’s miracles validating him, showing there has to be one more and that is heaven and his eternal life praising Him. This promise and his miraculous proof of creation is the hope and joy Jesus gives Christians worldwide.

Merry Christmas

Morning AB, All, and, of course, a very Merry Christmas to all.

Thank you AB for reliably doing this thread weekly, even on Christmas morn. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom, and thank yon commenters for taking your time to help flesh it all out for us.

The Week Just Passed

So Kelly Conway got the title of “Trump Whisperer”. That’s the name I saw somewhere for her position and I like it. For I truly think that Kellyann Conway had The Donald’s ear.

Sean Spicer was name the public relations guy. Don’t know Spicer, don’t remember him. But the appointment seems well received so let me shut up.

How about that stock market? This year so far, which is pretty close to ending, I made $9,000 on the stock market! I said that no matter who won, so long as it was a Republican, that stock market was going to roar.

Because there’s a bounty of technology out there awaiting creation and practical use, and none of it includes stupid sunbeam energy or electric cars.

Consider, for example, the drone. Come on, drones are the future. I call up the hardware store and show them a pic of a part I need. Boom, within minutes a drone delivers it to my house. Or pizza! Why couldn’t a drone deliver my pizza?

There’s a lot to do with that technology, including creating “drone highways” and drone regulations, enough to keep the politicos happy with making laws as they love to do. But with these Obama people nobody was going to sink a lot of bucks into these new technologies. With the Republicans in charge, especially Donald Trump, it’s a whole different economy.

How about Obama flipping Israel the finger one last time? As I am to understand it, there was some kind of invasion by the absolute worst military types on the planet. I speak of the Muslims, of course. The Muslim preferred way of making war is to strap suicide bombs on themselves and blow everything around them up.

Israel managed to not only stop the invasion, Israel gained, in that manner of warfare, some land that allegedly was owned by Palestine. Although we all know Palestine is a bunch of reprobates, thugs and thieves that no Arab country wants, the UN expects Israel to tolerate those losers.

So that lawfully won land is being used for….HORRORS! THEY ARE DARING TO BUILD SETTLEMENTS UPON IT. Guys we’re talking this going on for over fifty years now, for God’s sake, stop worrying about the losers Palestinians and give our only friend in that region some support.

But Obama, no, he has to be an asshole towards Israel, pulling America out of the vote so the stupid UN can condemn Israel for daring to build houses on their own land.

Does anybody remember Arafat? Yeah, the one Hillary kissed his ass publicly? He’s now buried in someone’s garden and is remembered as the asshole he was.

Finally, so a couple of “husbands” see Ivanka Trump, her husband and kids, boarding a commercial air flight. So sweet, Mr. Bob and Mr. Joe. They are married you know?

So Mr. Bob makes a jerk out of himself and Mr. Joe joyfully brags on Facebook about mistreating an innocent but classy woman only trying to travel in peace.

Turns out that one of these “husbands” wrote a book and everybody’s getting online and lambasting his book.


Cause people, we got to fight back against these assholes who think they can act like….well assholes, and gain our admiration.

As I understand it, Mr. Joe has gone into hiding and pulled down his book reviews.


Maybe we can’t go out and riot. Maybe we can’t count the votes for no good reason. Maybe we don’t bribe the electors of the electoral college. But give us any opening and we are going to fight back.

On A Personal Note

Got a Diane Feinstein story but first, had the custody hearing of my granddaughter, who was given to her father as her mother-my daughter- is nuts. Much more about this story later perhaps but this is good news. The last thing would be for Munchaussen-afflicted daughter to get custody of that beautiful child.

So me and Diane Feinstein, my friend Pat who I call that because, well, she looks exactly like Diane Feinstein….we go to the “midnight mass”. Only in Sussex county Delaware midnight is 9pm.

Now I don’t know what happened to the choir. Me and Feinstein both took a leave from the choir because we got a new director and so many things changed. The church is hiring a new music director so once that’s all in place perhaps many will come back. Right now they got only like 12 people and no men!

So Feinstein and I are sitting out with the people and no, people, no. I used to be at the front of that balcony where the choir sings and forgive my lack of humility, but my voice projected out over that congregation much much better than what they have now.

But there was me and Feinstein and don’t know if y’all knew it, but Diana Feinstein has one gorgeous voice and she was a song leader often. At one point in her life, Feinstein actually sang in musicals up in Wilmington.

And there’s this little tiny choir up their singing but not to fear. Me and Diane Feinstein saved the day.

First, heh, my voice is about fifty nine octives below Diane Feinstein and too often when we sit together, I might drown her out.

But not last night. Feinstein sang in that place we were in the middle of the church and it was beautiful.

Well of course I had to get all involved. So I sang harmony.


Well it’s in my bucket list, to sing a duet with Diane Feinstein. I think our voices would be great together.


Our voices DO sound great together.

We sang O Holy Night, Silent Night, What Child is This…..every song I sang with Feinstein in my right pleasant voice capable of a three note range, while Feinstein sang out, she sang out….hey folks, ME AND HER over sang the choir!

After the mass everybody was coming up and complimenting us….well more Feinstein than me but I didn’t care. Feinstein was so gloriously happy cause she does so love to sing.

And I don’t care what they say….I bought something to the table. Feinstein got more flattery than me but that’s ok.

She deserved it.

Merry Christmas all and tell us what’s going on out there.

Not all Christians dismiss evolution and science as atheism and Marxism. They also know that there is no telling on HOW God made His Creation, nor the efforts He put into motion.

The Protestant view is He snapped his fingers, and it was so. But even saying, "Let there be light" is the closest explanation for the Big Bang than any scientist can describe.

So therefore, my FRiend, I will you with some scripture, where the Lord God Himself describes not the snap, but the process of some of His Creation. Note that He describes the Creation of the Earth as a process that a stone mason would use, because at that time of writing, that is what people would understand then. But nowadays, no one believes the Earth actually has a corner stone, but that doesn't mean they've rejected God or the Bible. The Lord God is using the words and understanding of His people of their time, not His. The greater understanding of this is that God did indeed work his creation into being. From the Book Job, Chapter 38:

1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?

Thanks for thread A.B and Merry Christmas.

The vile Obama, Kerry, UN and Power-Sunstien have spread their hate for Israel upon us. Do not be surprised if Bambi tries to declare the UN Small Arms treaty “ratified” during the Congressional recess.

End the U.N. !

Merry Christmas to all FReepers everywhere. It is way past time to devolve ourselves of the worthless UN. Give them 60 days to move the headquarters to Brussels. Then tear down the building and put the land to good use.

Merry Christmas, AB!

5 shows; 2 are pre-empted, and 2 more are "analysts and journalists.....". Makes you wonder if the Clinton Foundation told ABC the under-the-table contributions to keep George on the air have stopped, since they don't need him anymore. This could be a permanent pre-emption for the George show.

And the "analysts and journalists..."? Those descriptions you have posted sound like what you see for informercials on the cable guide. Watching liberals explain why Hillary lost can get boring after a while.

If Fox turns out to the only Sunday morning chit chat show left, can we start talking about fishing shows instead?

Morning All!

Walice interviewing Newt, Trump’s strategic planner.

He said:

Trump’s retort to Putin was an indicator that they can be friends and work together on ISIS or adversaries, out nuclear capabilities have dwindled as Iran, Russia, China, the Norks have built theirs up.

Trump’s use of twitter for setting policy is brilliant, speaks directly to the people, and world leaders (don’t need the press)

Newt “made a boo-boo” regarding the “drain the swamp” comment.
