    It doesn’t matter whether he is a #BlackThugsMatter predator or a white trash predator, anyone who does this (and I watched the video) should be locked up for life without parole. Execution would be better, but our liberal pansy Supreme Court won’t permit it, even though execution would help protect the innocent.

    Based on careful analysis and mathematical modeling, I have a plan for a sudden ice age:

    1. Reduce energy usage, since the particulate emitted by power generation blocks sunlight and cools the globe.

    2. Increase government regulation of every aspect of our lives, so the elites can ensure that the poor and minorities are not hardest hit.

    3. More socialism to redistribute the reduced wealth more equitably among all affected people.

    4. More globalism and less fuss about borders and immigration, so that people can relocate to avoid the worst of the ice age.

    Fortunately, the same plan we used for the coming ice age in the 1970s and for global warming in the 1990s still works if 2020 brings an ice age.

We’re at step (3), so they invented yet another story that someone somewhere may be tired of terrorists.

    My theology is very simple. God told us how to live, and he used the Bible to do that.

    When my preferences and the Bible’s perfect guidance conflict, which does happen, I assume God got it right, and I’m wrong. I cannot imagine taking any other perspective. Even when I end up doing what I want, I know I’m wrong, and I try to do better the next time. Of course God is correct. Of course I am wrong. Again. Of course my life will be better if I follow His word than if I follow my own urges.

    Helping gay people to understand the Bible is the opposite of hate. I have never had any temptation at all to enter a gay relationship, but I have been on the receiving end of religious advice that I chose not to follow:

    I have for decades known a very nice Jew who wanted me to follow at least some religious dietary guidelines, including avoiding pork. I discussed that topic with him in a polite and friendly manner many times, and some of his reasoning made sense to me. Whether I agreed with his perspectives (USDA inspections are imperfect, and I am sure to occasionally under-cook pork, unless I always overcook it to the point that it is dry and not pleasant to eat), or disagreed (he believed it was sinful for me to eat pork, even though I am not Jewish), I didn’t pretend that his words were “hate”. Him wanting me to understand God’s message, with its theological and medical support, and follow God’s word was a sign of love. I took it as such, even when I disagreed with him.

    Of course democrats hate “INFANTryMEN”:

    Democrats believe INFANTs deserve to die, so that’s no title for someone going into combat.

    Democrats don’t like the word “MEN”, since none of them are actually men, even the ones who have marginally functional X and Y chromosomes.

    1 Tim 3:1-7

    1 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work.
    2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;
    3 not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous;
    4 one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence
    5 (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);
    6 not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.
    7 Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.


    Someone took it for granted that we would require a bishop to be Christian too, although verse 6 implies an experienced Christian. Apparently that is expecting too much from a liberal bishop.

    Pollster1 to Kaslin

    In response to my open letter to Bill Horndog, who describes himself as an adulterous Christian, Dick S. posted a lengthy comment on my personal Facebook page, including this statement: “The logical conclusion to your theology (adulterers can change and if they don’t it must be because they don’t have faith or are deceived) is extremely damaging to the souls of adulterous people. That was the point of Horndog’s letter. No amount of nice words will erase the damage. Only honest reconsideration of your theology will bring healing. Please don’t discount/deny the faith of your adulterous brothers and sisters. They have much to contribute to the church.”

    Of course, Dick has completely misstated what conservative Christians believe (we don’t say or believe that if adulterers don’t change “it must be because they don’t have faith or are deceived”), just as other parts of his comment (not quoted here) were also based on serious misunderstandings . . .

    First, what Scripture says on adultery is not negotiable, and no amount of new books or videos or personal stories will change that . . .

    As one New Testament scholar was candid enough to admit, it was clear to him that the Bible forbade adulterous practices, but when his own daughter came out as a cheater, he changed his opinion on the subject.

    That’s why I’ve often stated that there is not a single argument that can be brought from God’s Word to defend adulterous practice, but there are powerful emotional arguments that can be brought. In that context, I’m often reminded of Jesus’ words that, “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me” (Matt. 10:37).

    The father of an “adulterous Christian” activist changed churches when his home congregation rejected his son’s views on adultery. When asked about these words of Jesus, he commented that there were other churches he could go to, but he had only one son . . .

    But we will not and cannot affirm and bless what the Lord Himself opposes. To do so is to do a disservice to those in the swinger community.

    This one has been making the rounds,some,many may have seen?

    You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement.

    You want them gone immediately so you hire a guy. An animal control pro. You don’t care if the guy smells, you need those raccoons gone, pronto, and he’s the guy to do it! You don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care if he’s drinks alcohol, you don’t care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he voted for Obama, you don’t care if he has plumber’s simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed!

    He’s the guy. He’s the best you know of that might succeed. That’s why Trump leads the polls. Yes he can be rude, yes he’s an egomaniac, but you don’t care. The country is a mess because politicians stink.

    The Democrats are crippling businesses, increased racial conflict and have given so many free benefits that half of America does not work.

    The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless to correct problems. Illegal’s are everywhere and Obama is bringing inthousands more Syrian Muslims with terrorists among them, while excluding Christians, when 70% of the people do not want any more Muslims.

    Obama has substantially weakened our military, while doubling our national debt.

    You want it all fixed! You don’t care that Trump is crude, you don’t care that he insults people, you don’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary, you don’t care that he has changed positions, you don’t care that he’s been married 3 times, you don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, you don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslin terrorist. You don’t even care if the guy has bad hair.

    This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal’s, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Pedro and Hamid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in. “WE JUST WANT IT FIXED” and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

    You’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, Republican Party, and sick of illegal’s. You just want this thing fixed.

    Trump may not be a saint, but doesn’t have lobbyist money obligating him, he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him, all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has built great businesses, and he’s also not a politician or a cowardly politician. And he says he’ll fix it.

    You just want those raccoons gone. Out of your house. Now!!

  • Idaho 'rape': Obama prosecutor 'silencing Americans with threats of arrest'

    One look at that picture suggests that she got the job for her sexual “diversity”. That’s no excuse for giving in to unconstitutional threats. The First Amendment is still at least partially in effect, even though the Free Exercise Clause protecting freedom of religion is one of many basic human rights that has been destroyed by the thug in our White House.

    If they think they can prosecute an American in Idaho for referring to what they classify as a “sexual assault” as “rape”, they are mistaken. There is no crime in the trivial difference between the definitions as commonly used. If they think they can prosecute an American for referring to three rapists from the Sudan and Iraq as “Syrian”, they are also mistaken. An error in speculating on a foreigner’s country of origin is not a felony.

    Obama and all his minions disgust me. America has to survive just under 30 more weeks of this evil, and we should do it by opposing everything the thug in our White House stands for, not by hunkering down and hoping we survive everything he can throw at decent people.

    Let’s hope the R convention goes smoothly and that the general election goes smoothly and honestly as well.

    I do not expect the R convention to go smoothly, not with the establishment hoping to see Trump fail and Trump more focused on winning under the written rules than on playing the rest of the games associated with this mess. I also do not consider it possible that the general election will be anywhere near honest. The democrats will cheat massively. It's our job to (1) work as poll watchers to reduce their cheating, and (2) work to get out the vote and put the election outside the margin of fraud.

    Secession, while it would be great for states like Maine, would be devastating for states like Kansas an Utah, states that are landlocked.

    Kansas and Utah are landlocked, but the contiguous "Free States" consisting of Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina are most certainly not landlocked.

    Colorado and New Mexico, which supported the communist in 2008, would be landlocked if they decided to stay (or if the Free States rejected them for being too liberal), but that is not our problem. We should trade freely with them, so long as it is mutually beneficial trade and not them demanding welfare from productive citizens of the Free States. We might also consider Indiana and North Carolina, which voted for freedom in 2012, and of course Alaska, which is not geographically connected either to the Free States or to the People's Republic of Obama.

    An amusing alternative - logically equivalent, but it would drive liberals who care about words crazy, would be the same division of states, but with the Free States claiming to be the United States and expelling the People's Republics from the United States. We would keep our Constitution, with a clarification that the Scalia interpretation is the only valid interpretation. The words of the Constitution mean exactly what they say, and what those words meant when the Constitution was adopted. Thus, a well-regulated militia is all able-bodied citizens, and "regulated" means trained (on their own), while that prefatory clause does not in any way restrict the individual right that shall not be infringed. Similarly, the free exercise of religion takes precedence over any parasite's feelings that might be hurt if free citizens do not want to be treated as slaves compelled to work against their will. And the rest of the Constitution also means what it says, from the Enumerated Powers to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. We would almost certainly repeal the 17th Amendment, but that requires the full legal process, including the approval of 3/4 of the states permitted to remain in the United States.

    The law on secession is simple. If you win, it was legal. If you lose, it was treason. Fortunately, the liberals who want to control our lives are sissies. I don’t believe they would fight.

    If the Free States (whatever states that turns out to be) secede, I think they will be permitted to leave peacefully. The left has repeated their mantra that the flyover states receive more than they pay in federal taxes so much that (1) they believe it, and (2) they think that is what matters in a federal relationship.

    We have just cause to secede already.

    The thing about Obama is that he makes it so easy to find adjectives that fit so well. I pray that America will survive for 208 more adjectives.

    ....and if Texas does not want you?

    I wasn't planning on teaching Gender Studies or African American Studies at a university in Houston.

    I wasn't planning on mooching on welfare in Dallas, and then whining that even with more stuff than the people supporting me get to keep it's not enough.

    I wasn't planning on trying to remake Austin, Texas, to look like the People's Republic of Maryland.

    I was just planning on moving someplace remote and bringing enough guns to outfit a small town just about anywhere but Texas and enough money to retire for the next century or so. I think they'll take me.

    I hope Obama plans on stumping all over the United States.

    If Texas ever has a vote on secession, I will encourage Obama to speak against the idea in every county throughout Texas. Then, when secession wins, I'll move to Texas.

    They could use a neighborhood watch.

  • Explosive new twist in Idaho sex assault case (muslims)

    But then it must be false or inflammatory to be chargeable ... so if it was actually a Muslim gang of teenagers that raped the challenged girl the Federal Persecutor can go pound sand!

    It depends on what you mean by false. If you refer to the attack as "rape" and the thugs in government claim it was "sexual assault", was your statement false? If you say they were Syrian, is that false because the rapists were actually from Sudan and Iraq? If you call the rapists "teenagers" but only one was actually a teenager (singular!), is your statement false? Liberals disgust me, but they are very good at twisting words.

    That’s what liberals typically do - play word games that do not matter. It’s disgusting.

    The 7, 10, and 14 y/o rapists should be in jail until their trial (with video evidence, that should be quick) and then locked up forever. Instead, apparently the youngest rapist was never arrested and the other two predators were released. I don’t care if the attackers are juvenile, rape and sexual assault are inherently adult crimes, and these evil thugs should never be free again.

    Note: It’s not a race/religion thing. I say the same about rapists who are white or claim to be Christian.

    Washington post’s spin on this story:

    Headline - ‘I’m looking at Drudge: “Syrian Refugees Rape Little Girl at Knifepoint in Idaho” – all false’

    “To begin with, the chief said, the victim had not been raped but was believed to have been sexually assaulted.”

    “The suspects were not from Syria, but from Sudan and Iraq.”

    “Reports that a knife was used in the incident were also false”


    None of those details are central. The difference between a rape and a sexual assault is far less important than the fact that the assault happened. The specific country of origin for the attackers is also not key. Finally, when three people attack a five-year-old mentally-disabled girl, it’s not important whether they used a knife.

    The headline may be technically true, but only in a trivial sense.
