    The video is far from clear. It’s difficult to make out what the passenger was doing that may have caused the police officer to react as he did. The police officer DID specify to the passenger not to move, and yet, the passenger exited the vehicle. Not a good move. I didn’t hear conflicting orders from the police officer. He said, don’t move. Over and over again. Yet the passenger exited the vehicle.

    I have no strong initial view of what happened here. I’ll wait for a thorough investigation.

    It should be said that when someone in lawful authority is pointing a weapon at you, it’s a good idea, generally, to conform with instructions he’s giving you.

    Dear livius,

    Let us not forget, as well, that how the islamics define “insult” is a bit broad. Theo Van Gogh didn't mock the false religion with its fake prophet. He just made a movie with Ayaan Hirsi Ali about the treatment of women in islam. Pim Fortuyn’s offense was the recognition that widespread moslem immigration was changing his country, and not in a positive way. Even those who offer reasoned critiques of islam are hunted down and murdered by the death cult.

    In the eyes of these blasphemous followers of Satan, any criticism of islam or its damned fake prophet modhammed are offenses deserving of death.

    Let us recall what sharia - standard islamic law - entails:

    - death to infidels (non-moslems or Jew or Christians);
    - submission and humiliation of Jews and Christians, formalized by the payment of a tax;
    - the right to the property and lands of vanquished infidels;
    - the right to sexual access to the spouses and daughters of vanquished infidels;
    - the right to own, buy, and sell the women and children of vanquished infidels.

    That’d be: murder, oppression, pillage and plunder, rape and child sex abuse, and slavery.

    That's sharia. That's a system endorsed by large majorities of moslems in predominantly-moslem societies (99% of moslems in afcrapistan, as an example).

    But I guess, by golly, that that's really “extremist,” “fringe” islam. The moderates are all peace-loving Jeffersionian western liberals. It's that nasty, extremist, fringe 90% of moslems that give the moderate, mainstream 10% a bad name, LOL.

    The fact is that islam, itself, in the main, the “moderate” idea of islam, the islam blieved and held by most moslems, is evil, is oppression, is terrorism, is murder, rape, pillage, plunder and enslavement.

    Islam DESERVES to be mocked and ridiculed. It DESERVES Charlie Hebdo.

    Those who assert otherwise are ignorant and stupid, and perform great evil.

    And that goes for Pope Putz. In spades.

When Pope Putz compares insulting the fake prophet of the false religion to insulting one’s mother, and then says the natural consequence of that is to get punched in the nose, Pope Putz is saying, in so many words, “Well, the boys really shouldn't behave like that, but, hey, who can blame them?”

    Dear CTrent1564,

    You're on the right track, but I think it's not quite as rosy as you paint it. My understanding is that Jorge Bergoglio took a technical diploma, not a full-fledged college degree, as we understand it in the US. From the wiki article on him:

    “He attended the technical secondary school Escuela Nacional de Educación Técnica N° 27 Hipólito Yrigoyen[42] and graduated with a chemical technician's diploma.[43] He worked for a few years in that capacity in the foods section at Hickethier-Bachmann Laboratory.”

    This is not equivalent to a four-year liberal arts degree in the United States. Even though I have a major field for my degree, because I went to an American university for a baccalaureate degree, I was required to take more than just the courses in my field. I took history courses, math, science, English literature, and religion and philosophy courses. I hope that taking a broad-based, well-rounded degree program, I became a better-informed human being, not just someone with a narrow set of technical skills.

    Even engineers in the US take similar (although sometimes not as comprehensive) programs.

    He took theology courses to be a Jesuit, but frankly, I've seen the sort of intellects who get “graduate” degrees at Catholic seminaries, and most don't impress me. I live near the Catholic University of America, which is the only pontifical institute in the US, and actually offers pontifical degrees. Yet, the local Dominicans don't send any of their seminarians there because of the low quality of Catholic’s theology program for seminarians.

    So, this is someone basically trained to be a chemical lab assistant with some abridged theology courses.

    A great intellect he is not.

    Yet, he regularly comes into contact with great intellects. He is outmatched and outclassed by them. But he is vain. Those who are smart enough to flatter him and his predilections are praised by him, those who don't are “rigid doctors of the law,” with an inferior faith.

    He'd have been better as pope of the Manichees.

    Dear livius,

    “It was a prepared talk, of course, and I doubt that he wrote it himself, although he may have added some of the personal anecdotes to it. It’s when he’s allowed to speak spontaneously - for example, in his interviews or weekday homilies - that he really runs amok.”

    I've noticed that. That's why I think he's stupid, not a formal heretic. He reads the speeches they write for him, and he says, “Oh, yeah, this is good Catholic stuff.”

    Then he speaks nonsense off the cuff, and I think in his own mind, the two are the same. I think he fails to understand how what he says is incompatible with Catholic doctrine.

    So then, Cardinal Kasper comes along and says, “Let's do it this way, and this is how it's in accord with Catholic doctrine,” and Franky says, “Oh, yeah, that sounds good, too!”

    As for the remark on a merciful approach in the confessional to artificial contraception, that's just a reiteration of the guidance given by the Vatican from the time of Pope Paul VI. I don't think there's anything new, there.

    Dear piusv,

    I generally avoid imputing evil intentions when stupidity will do.

    I'm not saying that I think Pope Franky is “pure of heart.” I think he's shrewd in a political way, crafty in that way. I think he has an authoritarian streak that is a mile long. I also think he's very vain.

    But I also think that if you were walk through his deepest theological thoughts, you wouldn't get your ankles wet.

    This is why he often dichotomizes between the “teachers of the law” and the “faith of old women.” He's just not smart enough to keep up with the “teachers of the law,” so he denigrates them, and discounts their knowledge and expertise. This helps him to believe that his own deficient theological understanding is not problematic, and gives him the confidence to pronounce things that are flying 30,000 feet over his head. It also means that he sincerely doesn't understand the doctrinal implications of everything he says or does, and actually believes that his understanding is compatible with Catholic faith.

    It may be that the overall effect on the Church will be little different between whether he's a full-blown, evil modernist, or just a dumb material heretic, as it appears that the actual modernists may be leading him around by the nose.

    Nonetheless, charity requires me to give the benefit of the doubt - he's stupid, not evil.

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    This is why I think Pope Franky is more stupid than evil. He's a putz. He doesn't understand that the logical conclusions of some things he thinks contradict other things he thinks. As an example, in allying with the climate hoaxers and anti-frackers and other people who are against plentiful, cheap energy, he is allying himself with population controllers, abortionites, human-haters, euthanasianists, and folks who wish to keep the most impoverished folk son the earth in poverty (or eliminate them, outright).

    As an example his desire to somehow square the circle with regard to divorce/remarriage/communion allies him with the homosexualists, the polygamists, and others who are the enemies of the family.

    The author is incorrect.

    The heart of mohammedism is the practice of sharia. Sharia is the codification of murder, rape, looting, pillaging, and enslaving for fun and profit. Islam is oppression. It is intrinsically evil. Its adherents are evil. Every moslem that affirms sharia is complicit in the murder, rape, pillaging, plunder, and enslavement of human beings. It is the moral duty of all people to insult islam and its false prophet, the child rapist mohammed. To ridicule islam, to mock the “prophet” is a good work, a moral duty on all decent human beings.

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    “The substantial majority of people killed by the jihadists are Muslims who did not support them. Gee, how did that happen?”

    Tolkien reminds us that orcs will turn on each other if there aren't other victims to be had. That doesn't mean that we should indulge in empathy for the poor orc victims. It does suggest that to the degree possible, when we see the moslems killing each other, we should stay out of the way.

    “They have a great many different styles, elements, commitments,...”

    blah blah blah

    And the overwhelming number of these (99% of Afghans, to cite one country), as demonstrated in a post just a few up from your post, desire that we should all live under sharia, which mandates death to infidels, oppression to Jews and Christians (at least until we're given the option to convert or die), rape of women, looting, pillaging, plundering, and enslavement of captives.

    That vast majority of islamics shares the blood guilt of those actually performing the crimes that cry out to Heaven for vengeance.

    Regarding the exceptions that you cite, I've already acknowledged that it's a bitch for that mainstream, moderate 5% whose reputations are sullied by the extremist, far-out, radical fringe 95%.

    Nonetheless, even these innocent moslems have no right to be angry when the oppressed peoples of the world condemn and vituperate islam, insult it, profane it. Islam, being an objectively evil system, deserves every bit of what it gets.

    As I've stated before, if adherents of islam were generally a bit more... “polite” about their disagreements with us, it would do well to show a little courtesy when offering our critique. But nearly all mohammedans heartily approve of the murder, rape, pillage, plunder, and enslaving done in their name, and thus, have no right to be angry when their fake prophet and the other aspects of their false religion are mocked and insulted.

    As a group, they have it coming.

    “We are tempted to say they are not human.”

    What's this “we” business, kemosabe? I've never said their not human. No, in fact, that is the horror of it! They ARE human. They have the moral agency that comes with being human, and this is overwhelmingly how they choose to exercise their human moral agency! If they were merely dumb animals, they would be guiltless. They'd be merely cockcroaches. Step on ‘em, but have some pity while you squash their guts.

    But they're NOT just cockroaches! They're human beings who can choose good or evil, and they choose satanic worship by their deeds and the support for the deeds of their fellow moslems! They are WORSE than cockroaches. They are moral horrors, atrocities of evil, precisely because they are human and use their free will to regularly commit crimes that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, including and especially willful mass and serial mass murder!

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    “They are not rightly inspired to murder, but they are rightly angered.”

    No.

    They are not rightly angered. Just as the criminal has no right to anger for his prison sentence, the moslems have no right to anger when their satanic religion is ridiculed. By their works they are known.

    When they forswear murder, rape, pillage, plunder, and slavery as just punishments to be meted out by them against those they perceive as infidels, then they will have a claim for respect for their religion. Until such time, by according justice to the murderers and rapists in their anger, you are imposing an unjust burden on the victims of islam - the obligation not to protest islam through ridicule and mockery.

    The oppressed (and all the earth is oppressed by these demonic savages) have a right to their voice, and they have a right to insult the oppressor. The oppressor acts unjustly if he takes umbrage to the cries of the oppressed as they cry out to Heaven for vengeance.

    Imagine a slaveowner being angry at a slave in the antebellum south for mocking his master who has the audacity of thinking he can own another human being. The anger of the owner is unjust. Even if the slave said terrible things, obscene things about the owner, considering the oppression forced on the slave by the owner, the owner should be grateful that is ALL he receives at the hand of the slave. You would defend the anger of the slave owner?

    In the current world, the last systematic slavers ARE THE MOHAMMEDANS! They are vicious, evil oppressors! The oppressed mock them because often, the oppressed have no more power than to mock them. And you would defend the mohammadan oppressor against the oppressed?

    Whatever else they may do, whomever else they may insult or mock, folks like Charlie Hebdo are calling out the polluted moslems. That is justice. For the polluted ones to take offense is not just.

    Donahue is an ass.

    "most Muslims are not rapists, murderers, etc. nor supporters of such crimes."

    Actually, polls show that the vast majority of moslems throughout the world favor sharia law that dictates murder, rape, pillage and plunder against the non-believers. They are accomplices before, during, and after the fact. That an unbeliever may be justly killed for failure to convert is uncontroversial in most of the islamic world. That the women of those who fight against islam may be taken as war booty and turned into concubines by mohammedan men is uncontroversial (this is rape). That they make take the belongings of those whom they defeat is uncontroversial. That gays should be stoned, apostates murdered, Jews and Christians oppressed and robbed when not killed outright, these are all mainstream, uncontroversial concepts in the islamic world.

    Do you remember Sept 11? I do. I remember seeing all the moslems rioting with joy throughout the mohataman world. I remember the savage beasts ululating in arab-occupied Judea and Samaria. Except if a moslem formally denounce these things (and really, formally renounce the satanism of islam), he is guilty of all the crimes approved by his personal beliefs.

    "You could call them hypocrites: they are better than their creeds would dictate."

    They're not hypocrites. They just haven't had their chance to commit these atrocities yet. Just give them the opportunity, and see what happens.

    Over the past decade or so, we tried an experiment. We took a couple of heavily-moslem countries, and tried to give them operational governments, actual freedom, institutions of freedom, elections, trained militaries, everything. At the first chance they got, these countries rejected universal human rights and re-embraced sharia, like a dog going back to its vomit. Afghanistan was largely free of the Taliban, and now the Taliban are regaining their hold on power. Why?

    Because that's ultimately what the Afghan people want. They don't want freedom or peace or justice or free speech or free expression or a right to fair trial, or respect for religious pluralism or religious freedom or freedom from cruel and unjust punishment. They fashioned and voted for a constitution that enshrines SHARIA, not the Bill of Rights. As have countless other islamic countries.

    Much the same thing happened in Iraq, where, before Saddam was overthrown, had many of the trappings of a relatively-modern, relatively-western society. We freed them from a dictator who was murdering, it's estimated, an extra 60,000 people per year (out of a population of 25 million). What did they vote for? Sectarianism, sharia, one harsh version of islam over another.

    If your point is that there are a small minority of devout moslems who don't want to kill us all, well, that's sort of a trivial point to make. There were, I'm sure, some Nazis (the spiritual kin of the islamics) who weren't entirely on board with killing all those Jews, either. Like I said, it's a bitch for that "mainstream, moderate" 5% who don't want to kill us all.

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    “...Muslims can reasonably be angry about pictures of him being buggered.”

    That's a little bit of moving of the goal posts. The original Danish cartoon to which the filth initially objected - and murdered over - was a depiction of the stinking fake prophet as a bomb. Considering that moslems are by and large violent, raging, human-hating terrorists when given the opportunity, it was an accurate depiction of reality. It's tough to make the case that they have a right to be offended by reality. The cartoon that set them off a few years back was the one with the caption, "100 lashes if you don't die laughing," which is hardly obscene, except in the sense that it's a pretty obscenely-weak pun.

    Part of the problem is that it takes almost nothing to offend to the frenzy of mass murderer these savages. Just depicting the fake prophet at all sends them over the cliff. Even if they deserved any respect whatsoever (which they don'), they're so objectively over-the-top in their expectations in a world that's 80% non-moslem, that their very thought processes are an offense to civilized society.

    But even if they were responding to a picture of their fake prophet in such a position, no, they may not legitimately be angry.

    That is a privilege that accrues only to the civilized. The mohammedans are savage, uncivilized barbarians.

    Those willing to show respect for others, and willing to discourse civilly deserve civil discourse in return. Those willing to discuss differences, rather than murder over them, deserve that others will not tear down their holy objects with ridicule and mockery.

    Those who assert a right to murder, rape, pillage, plunder, and enslave others in the name of God do not deserve these courtesies. In fact, what they deserve is belittlement, scorn, contempt, return anger, vituperation, shunning, exile from humanity, and even death. They are murderers, their father is Satan, and they will return to their father at death.

    “As far as they know, you're just blaspheming a man of God, and they feel humiliated and violated by it,...”

    That's irrelevant. The criminal may be angry when sentenced to a long prison term, but he has no right to his anger. They may feel it all day long, but as they are uncivilized savages, they have no right to the feeling. As they are murderers and rapists who harm innocents for being infidels, they have no right to these feelings, or any respect for these feelings.

    Donahue is an apologist for murderers, rapists, and enslavers.

    “...just as we feel violated by the way CH portrayed the Most Holy Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary, demeaned by obscenity.”

    The day I start using rusting blades to saw off Bill Maher’s head for his offenses against Catholicism, I lose my right to feel angry by any abuse of my Catholicism.

    The right to respect is earned. The right to indignation or anger for having one’s sacred things blasphemed is earned through reciprocity, by being willing to be tolerant of the other. The moslem filth blaspheme the Most Holy Trinity all day long. I've never advocated that a hair on their heads be harmed for that blasphemy. Far from it. Although they are all filthy blasphemers, if they were to live in peace with us, I would count them good neighbors, share the Gospel as best as I could, respect them, and pray for their souls.

    That is the respect that is earned by not murdering, raping, pillaging, plundering, looting, buggering, and enslaving those whom you consider infidels.

    As for your student at East Tennessee, I have already stated that it is unfair that it is the “extremist, fringe” 95% of moslems that make it hard on the “moderate, mainstream” 5%. But this vast (lol) “moderate, mainstream” group will just have to suffer until they finally put down the 95% that want to kill us all.

    Even if there are 10 such good and “decent moslems” on the earth (an iffy proposition), islam itself OBJECTIVELY deserves ridicule for the murdererous ways of nearly all of its adherents. If these 10 “decent moslems” have hurt feelings because of that, then THAT'S GOOD. Let them understand why their filthy religion is so hated by civilized men. Let them feel the just anger and the contempt that normal, non-barbarian peoples, the loathing and contempt that we feel toward their sick, evil, demented cult, so that they may investigate the cause of this near-universal despising, which is that the nature of the cult is evil, and they and their religion come from the devil, and they must flee it to avoid eternal damnation.

    "Let them put down the... guns."

    Unfortunately, they will likely not put down theirs until we have taken up ours and killed them in large numbers. That is what barbarians understand - force and violence.

    Islam must be destroyed.

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    There is nothing valorous about being an apologist for murderous barbarians.

    The islamics have no right to be angry, and thus the moron Donahue is wrong. They have no right to be angry because they and their religion deserve ridicule and mock. They deserve to see their prophet “profaned” (how, precisely, does one “profane” a fake prophet?), for the very reason that they are barbarians.

    Think about Flannery O'Connor and her justification for her literary style. For the nearly-blind, you paint in bright, bold colors, for the nearly-deaf, you shout. The moslems are the blind and deaf of the world, blindly murdering good people and human decency, deaf to the pitiable cries for mercy of the murdered, whose innocent blood cries out to God in Heaven for vengeance.

    To insult them and their “prophet” is the decent, the moral thing to do. It is a kindness. It is far better than they deserve, which is unrelenting death. It is their inability to hold polite conversation except with the implied threat of the rusty knife to saw off the head of the infidel that makes them deserving of contempt and ridicule.

    I have seen polling from all around the world that demonstrates that the concept of “moderate islam” is a lie. In nearly all islamic-occupied countries, large, huge majorities of these filth are just peachy keen on the idea of beheading/raping/enslaving the infidel, the insulter of the “prophet,” along with the gay, the adulterer, and anyone else that provides the offense of the day.

    But I suppose, it's that extremist fringe 95% that give the moderate 5% a bad name.

    Those unwilling to refrain from murder, rape, incest, buggery, bestiality, etc. against those with whom they disagree have no right to complain that others treat them and their “holy” things with scorn and contempt. It is beyond blasphemous to suggest otherwise.

    Good manners, polilte discourse, consideration for the sensibilities of another's religion or beliefs are the rewards for those willing to act in a civilized manner. Thus, the world of mohatmatism is excluded in its entirety from these considerations. Donahue the ass is wrong. The savages have no right to be angry.

    The ass Donahue should shut his yap, retreat into a corner, say a Rosary, and pray that God will give him an extra 75 IQ points to get it up to room temperature.

    Donahue is a boob.

    Dear Mrs. Don-o,

    You are a kind person with a big heart and all the best impulses, but Bill Donahue should staple his mouth shut.

    Even if I were to admit that anything he said had an iota of truth to it, sometimes, the timing and context of comments can be so egregiously evil as to make even objective truth entirely obscured.

    That being said, there is nothing true about what the ass Donahue said.

    It is a good general rule not to be gratuitously insulting. However, this rule generally only applies when one is dealing with other individuals who deserve the benefit of the doubt that they are people acting in good faith to participate civilly in a civil society.

    It's kind of like the rules of war (although one hopes with a little less bomb-throwing, at least, not literally). We all reciprocate with each other on certain basic concepts, like the inviolability of prisoners of war, the role of non-combatants, the requirement for military personnel to be uniformed in order to reduce civilian casualties, etc.

    Thus it is with other civilized people in the discussion of religion and other sensitive topics. I'll try not to abuse your sacred cows if you don't abuse mine.

    If we were dealing with civilized people, the ass Donahue would have a point.

    But as it stands, Mohametans have no right to be angry. At all. They are by and large savage barbarians, entirely lacking in civilization, and deserve not consideration for their tender sensibilities but rather death in extremely large numbers. However, instead of the mass death they so richly deserve, they receive only mild ridicule. It is ridicule entirely deserved, and no one owes these filthy creatures a damned thing, certainly not an apology.

    These verminous human filth believe their god instructs them to murder non-believers, rape their women, and enslave their children (as well as bugger the innocent cattle). They are outside the laws of civilization, and should be treated for the dirty barbarians that they are.

    If and when some significant percentage of these savages decide to join humanity, we can reconsider what they deserve, and whether or not we should mock their god, their religion, their beliefs, and their perversions.

    Until such time, the ass Donahue should stuff it.

    Dear massgopguy,

    “You are either Knights or caterers.”

    They are likely both.

    Councils with halls usually have a parallel organization that owns and runs the hall. Often, it's called the “home corporation,” as in, “Council #5555 Home Corporation.” The corporation is the actual entity that owns the hall and the catering business and services that go with it. The council controls, but does not own the corporation. The corporation must obey all federal and state statutes, including any “anti-discrimination” statutes on the books.

    Thus, the council may have been under legal obligation to capitulate.

    I forget the specific tax reasons for this; it has to do with taxable versus non-taxable council activities. Beyond the tax issues, Supreme strongly discourages that councils directly own real property.

    For many councils, it's absolutely necessary to run a for-profit catering business out of the council home, otherwise, the council home is just unsupportable. The alternative is for the council to have no physical home, and to rely on the good graces of local pastors to allow councils to use parish facilities for their activities.

    Which sometimes works out. And sometimes doesn't. It also means that the survival of a council can turn on the attitude and receptiveness of a new pastor when he rolls into a parish. I've actually seen councils without their own homes brought nearly to the point of destruction by new pastors. In one case, it required the intervention of the ordinary of the archdiocese to prevent that eventuality. In another case, it took extraordinary effort on the part of State and District officers to prevent another such destruction.

  • NC gas tax increase among the highest in the nation

    01/02/2015 7:39:56 AM PST · 40 of 57

    Dear Sherman Logan,

    The argument that increased fuel economy leads to lower revenues doesn't, in my mind, justify the intrusion into the lives of individuals necessitated by a per-mile tax. The simple solution to this is if revenues are falling in real terms:

    1. Innovate to reduce the costs in real terms of building and maintaining roads. We often make the error of thinking in a static way about government costs for services. In competitive industries, companies are forced to become ever-more efficient, as consumers will only grudgingly pay higher prices.

    2. Where innovation and competitive pressure fail to reduce the real cost of these products and services, raise the tax across the board to make up the required revenue. Of course, this has the added effect of making it marginally more worthwhile to buy a more efficient vehicle, thus increasing the overall efficiency of the vehicle fleet in the United States. On the whole, that's probably a good thing.

    To me, the worst solution is to provide a mechanism that makes it easier for the government to collect more revenue more readily, with less transparency, and in a way that creates another government enforcement mechanism similar in concept to what is needed to collect the individual income tax.

    Dear Sherman Logan,

    “That would be a user fee per mile adjusted by vehicle weight.”

    I've heard it argued that gas taxes pretty much do this already.

    Although not perfectly linear, fuel mileage tracks roughly with vehicle weight - the heavier a vehicle, the more fuel it uses per mile, and thus, a per gallon tax on fuel means that heavier vehicles pay more per mile than lighter vehicles.

    It's true that the relationship isn't perfect, but it produces roughly the same effect with a lot less government than I've seen proposed to charge per-mile taxes, which usually include tracking the actual driving of individual drivers by the government. Not a conservative solution at all.
