  • The Denial About Super Bowl 50 Having a Gay Agenda is Laughable!

    Kirchhoff's Law ^ | 02-09-2016 | Mary Kirchhoff
    The Denial About Super Bowl 50 Having a Gay Agenda is Laughable! It all started with this simple statement. “How about this: God is Love. I believe we should have had a cross with the same words "Believe in Love" without the rainbow. Got a problem with that?” That’s what I wrote in response to an article written in the Huffington Post the day after the Super Bowl, entitled, “To Those Bothered By The 'Gay Agenda' At Super Bowl 50.” If you’re not in the know, a huge rainbow flag with the words, “Believe in Love” was prominently featured at...

    Part One is exactly as advertised. If you are going to be offended by Profanity go read something else. There, I've done my part. Profanity serves a purpose in the military. General Patton explained; "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an Army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An Army without profanity couldn't fight it's...

    Citing "pervasive, prejudicial, and inflammatory" publicity Waco defendant Matt Clendennen and his lawyer, Clint Broden, filed a change of venue motion in the 54th District Court in Waco today. Clendennen is currently scheduled to stand trial later this month. He is charged with being part of a criminal conspiracy to commit murder and assault. In a most amusing, 19 page motion, Broden singled out McLennan County District Attorney Abelino Reyna, Waco Police spokesman Patrick Swanton, Justice of the Peace W.H. Peterson, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Waco Mayor Malcolm Duncan Jr. and the Waco Tribune-Herald for prejudicial statements and coverage that...

Former Shoppers Fined $5,000 for No Longer Frequenting Nearby Mall Residents of Anytown, USA were surprised to receive invoices in the mail from their local county government Friday. The county identified people who used to shop in the local mall but, due to reports of muggings, rapes, and vehicle theft at the mall, switched to shopping at other, safer malls, or just doing it online. The thousand dollar a year fine was based on the estimated amount of revenue the mall says it lost due to their departure. Professional economists, when...

    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | 8/9/15 | George Nash
    Perhaps the most important fact to assimilate about modern American conservatism is that it is not, and has never been, monolithic. It is a coalition with many points of origin and diverse tendencies, not always easy to reconcile. And because of this fact, there has long been a felt need among many conservatives to integrate the Right's divergent components into a philosophically coherent--or at least functional--force. Hence the frequent use of the term fusionism, a word coined more than fifty years ago. Conservatives often like to say that they adhere to a body of immutable truths about human nature and...

Residents of Balad, a town 30 kilometers (about 18 miles) north of Mogadishu, found the body of a man who might have been blown out of the Airbus 321 in Tuesday's blast, said police officer Mohamed Hassan.

    Unlike his GOP opponents, Trump stands apart from the traditional establishmentarians on the right. On the Democratic side, Sanders and Clinton compete to out-talk one another with the exact same catchphrases and fictitious dramas about income inequality, gun violence, sexism and racism. On the Republican side, all the candidates talk big on amnesty and illegal immigration after they've all spent years supporting it. They all talk about the grassroots after taking million dollar checks from the right-wing donor class and Wall Street. They all blur together. Among them, only one candidate stands out. While the two Democratic front-runners and all...

However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt.

    In 2009, Obama stole money from retired teachers and police officers in Indiana During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana. Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law, wrote of this:"Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional...

The image of the frozen deer, which was uploaded a while back on reddit, shows a young buck standing in deep snow.

    When faced with a choice between different politicians at election time, our natural instinct is to ask “Which one will let me do what I want to do?” It’s natural. Sure, it may seem selfish, single-minded, narrow. But it’s natural. We have only one vote, so we think of our own lives, and the possible ways that the candidates might want to control our lives, and we think about what we personally like to do, and so we study the candidates to see which ones seem most open-minded about “allowing” us our freedom, vs. which ones want to take it...

    In July of 2008 Obam asaid he would be POTUS for "the next 8-10 years" (see http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/2008/07/20/obama-ill-be-president-next-8-10-years ). That implies that something would happen to keep him POTUS for 2 years beyond his 2nd term. It would have to be some kind of cataclysmic emergency toward the end of his 2nd term. Over his 2 terms Obama has made sure that our southern border is wide open, knowing that our Islamist enemies have targeted us through that hole. He has gotten rid of secular Middle East leaders who have support our anti-terrorist activities and replaced them with Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS,...

    "...Truth be told, he is a prodigal son of the establishment. In no real sense is Cruz an outsider. He graduated from Princeton and Harvard. He worked for the George W. Bush campaign and served in Bush’s administration. He became solicitor general of Texas, and defended corporate clients at the law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. All the while he was angling for a political opportunity and hit pay dirt in his upstart campaign for the Senate, which immediately became a launching pad for the presidency...."

    Ah, what is a political commentator to do? The presidential campaign has not even gotten to the stage of the first voting in Iowa yet, and the whole thing is already a parade of fifteen or more clown cars. What am I supposed to do? I look into my tool chest, and I am already running low on colorful adjectives. And anything I might want to say about Trump will now just Palin comparison. So let us start at the beginning of this sad business, when John McCain first selected her to be his vice-presidential candidate. What has happened since...
  • Trump's View of Women v. Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton

    Today I had a thought...Just sayin'...It seems all alpha males tomcat around. In Trump's case, he has chosen incredibly strong women who thought more of themselves to give him the boot, rather than to stick around for the money and become enablers. This tells me something about his choice in mates, which, although 3 times married, he has chosen women very different than the pathetic profiles of Jackie, Lady Byrd and Hillary.....not making excuses, just an observation.

    Bible Ignorance, Clergy Corruption and the Inquisition in England before the Reformation Bible Illiteracy as the Cause of Widespread Corruption and Deadly Censorship By Julio Severo In plain 21th century and specially in the pro-life and conservative movement, it makes no sense to defend the Inquisition, a highly divisive subject contributing nothing to the pro-family cause. But since 2013 I have seen the Inquisition, which tortured and murdered Jews and Protestants, being passionately excused and even defended by some Catholics. See "Can a Pro-Life Activist Defend The Inquisition?" in 2013 and "Neocons, the Inquisition, Russophobia and Lies" in 2015....
