Hacking Into Big Sis's Blog!

Have you ever wondered why Flicka Spumoni does not share her brilliance with us more often?  I, too, have wondered such things, and I think it might be because she's got those five kids and actually does real, serious writing for actual people when she has the time and does not waste a lot of time blathering away on her blog like some writers I know.  Still, though, I think it is rather cruel that she withholds her stellar insights and witty expressions thereof from us.  What ought we to do to encourage her to throw us a bone here on Blogger every now and then? 

I'm thinking: cupcakes.  Yep, lots and lots of cupcakes covered in frosting and those little multi-colored dot sprinkly things.  What do you think?  Maybe add in an enticing bottle of red wine?  We promise her that, if she writes at least one time per month on this here blog thingy, we will supply her with a dozen cupcakes and one bottle of red wine.  Serious writers tend to like wine -- so I hear, at least, never having been a serious writer in my life -- and no one can resist a cupcake.

So, in the spirit of taking the first step toward doing the right thing (instead of running away from the right thing and cowering under my bed as is my usual wont), I hereby offer the first delivery of cupcakes and wine: 

Who's with me here, yo?

Santorum: Immigration Hypocracy

Here's the thing: I have no intention of taking up an eligibility fight with Santorum. If Obama can be a natural born citizen even though his father was not an American, so can Rick. And that goes for any of our other GOP candidates. I'm talking 'bout you, Rubio.

But, this is where I have a problem: When Newt outlined a very bold, aggressive approach to dealing with our fluid borders and the illegal alien crisis we are facing today, Rick and Mitt both accused Newt of being flat-out pro-illegal alien because he included a very practical, reality-grounded approach to dealing with those particular, aging aliens who have deep roots in their respective communities and are otherwise law-abiding.

To be clear, Newt advocated passing a comprehensive national immigration bill. He said he'd control the border. He said he'd make English the official language of government. He be very pro legal immigration. He'd create a legal worker program that would be outsourced to American Express, Visa, or Matercard (remember, he is the Science and Technology Candidate) in order to avoid the kind of fraud you'd have with a federal bureaucracy and he'd be tough on American employers who hired illegals.

In addition, he'd create a way for illegals who are now in their senior years to begin a path to legality (emphatically, not citizenship) - legality- so that they can stay in America with limited rights that, importantly, do not include the right to vote but spare them from being separated from their children, grandchildren and beloved communities in their waning years. This path to citizenship would not be decided in Washington by a bunch of bureaucrats, but through a local citizen advisory board.

Who better to decide if someone gets to pursue a path to legality than the neighbors who've lived among them for decades?

For this, Mitt and Rick accused him of outright supporting amnesty. This was a grossly dishonest accusation especially since their solution to this problem was simply to ignore it.

But, in light of the fact that Rick's grandmother was not a citizen, I believe it was the height of hypocrisy for him to slander Newt in that way, also.

Let me tell you about my Grandma Blue Eyes and why I take this issue so personally. Grandma came to America from Paisley, Scotland through Ellis Island along with her sisters and family when she was five.

Sometime during the war, all her sisters and she had fulfilled all the requirements and classes needed to become American citizens. When the day came for the big test and swearing-in ceremony, she was ill and could not go with her sisters. All her sisters became citizens that day but she did not.

And then fear seized her. The kind of fear that wasn't healthy and that she struggled with for most of her life. You see, she was married and had a child, the only one out of her sisters with such attachments. If she went back to get her test and failed, she'd be deported and separated from her family.

She was simply terrified to fail. So days became weeks became months and instead of taking the test she decided to just pretend she was at that ceremony with her sisters and granted citizenship with them.

That's how she became an undercover illegal alien.

She was married to a p51 fighter pilot who served in WWII, raised four wonderful, law-abiding children and lived and worked in America her whole life without ever voting or receiving public aid. Her children all work and have families and contribute to society and none have ever received public aid. Now, her grandchildren (of which I am one) have families and are productive members of society who deeply love and are devoted to this country.

She loved this country deeply and was a sterling citizen.

If, in the years proceeding the war, it was Scots who had created an unsustainable, illegal invasion of our country to such a degree that Americans were facing bankruptcy supporting them, Mitt and Rick would be fine and dandy deporting Grandma Blue Eyes along with all the other illegals who came to America and did nothing but take from us and break our laws.

Under a Mitt of Rick presidency, there would be no distinction between Grandma Blue Eyes and someone who stole over our borders last year with his pregnant wife and made hard-working, decent Americans pay for his healthcare and the cost of delivering his baby.

In light of this, Newt is not only looking like the most compassionate, practical candidate who deals with problems as they are and not as we wish them to be, but the only sane one as well.

Why I'm With Gingrich

The Illinois primary is tomorrow and I can't wait to go out and cast a vote for Newt. Here's why:

*15% Optional Flat tax - Conservatives have been whining about the overbearing tax code and the bloated IRS bureaucracy for years. A flat tax would eliminate loopholes and reduce the amount and need for an IRS auditing board leaving Americans much more free in regards to their personal finances.

If Newt goes the flat tax goes not only for this election but also possibly for our lifetimes.

*12.5% Corporate Income Tax - This would compete with the lowest tax rates in the world and would invite all the money sitting out on the sidelines, watching in horror as Europe goes down in ashes, to invest in America. Neither Mitt nor Rick come close to this tax rate.

If Newt goes, competing on a global level with that tax rate goes not only for this election but also possibly for our lifetimes.

*Eliminating the EPA - If Newt goes so does the prospect of eliminating the EPA, one of the most destructive forces against entrepreneurship in America today, as he is the only candidate raising that issue. This may be the only opportunity in our lifetimes to do so.

*Federal Reserve Audit - If Newt goes so does the prospect of auditing the Federal Reserve not only for this election but possibly for our lifetimes. Mitt and Rick have refused to even broach this subject. To be clear, a thorough and public auditing of the Fed would result in a universal uprising to eliminate that unconstitutional board that no politician could oppose. Then, we would no longer be left with a lone voice crying out in the darkness every now and again against that board, but we would be a nation of irate and determined people demanding that the Fed be dismantled.

*Optional Private Social Security Account - If Newt goes so does our opportunity to choose an optional, private Social Security account fashioned after the Chilean model not only for this election but possibly for our lifetimes. Mitt and Rick want to keep Social Security more or less status quo.

*Privatize NASA - If Newt goes so does our opportunity to privatize NASA. Mitt and Rick mocked Newt's bold vision for America's space program but offered no option to reform and modernize what is now a behemoth bureaucracy.

Newt can win if we can keep any of the other candidates from getting past 1000 delegates, as this excellent video from CNN demonstrates. We are in the midst of the most exciting primary of any of our lifetimes. The fight has just begun and we can begin the long process of restoring American's constitutional liberties with this election. And it has to do with a whole mess more than just repealing Obamacare, although it must start there.

When we get to the middle of June without a clear winner, all bets are off. It will be time to reset the game. In essence the primary race will have just begun. That's when a true conservative with big, bold ideas can rise up to lead this nation back to its Constitutional limits. Newt doesn't want to manage Washington, as Mitt and Rick seem to want to do. He wants to tear down the Secular-Left Machine, as articulated in the superb video. And that's why I'm with Newt. I hope you consider joining me.

The Innovative Candidate

Newt is for utilizing science and technology to fundamentally transform our systems of government and economy into the most competitive, life-enhancing models in the history of mankind. This is why I continue to be with Newt.
Notice, how deftly he answers Obama's inane assertion that Republicans are somehow pro "flat-earth" in this video.

The Stupidity of Maher

Ha! Your facts are wrong, Bill. A fact is a form of knowledge, isn't it?
It's the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, not the Tree of Knowledge. There is a big difference. It was knowledge of a very specific kind being produced by that tree, whatever it was, not knowledge in general that God forbade.
The Bible actually encourages reasoning, understanding, wisdom and knowledge. Isaiah 1:18 says, "Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord." And Proverbs 24:3, 4 says, "By wisdom a house is built; And by understanding it is established. And by knowledge the rooms are filled with all pleasant and precious riches."
But, then you'd have to pull your nose out of your porn stack and actually read the Bible in order to know that.
It also happened to be through understanding and by acquiring knowledge and applying wisdom that deeply Christian men (possibly even more devout than Santorum) such as Copernicus, Bacon, Kepler, Galileo, Pascal, Newton, to name but a few, uncovered the workings of our universe bringing us into the modern era. But, what would they know, they're just some of the most prodigious thinkers in Western Civilization, not really important snark-show hosts like you.
Your success can only be attributed to your astoudingly ignorant audience. But, we shouldn't be to harsh. They most likely didn't have the advantage of being homeschooled.

About Brietbart's 2010 CPAC Speech

At this moment in time, he had just busted open wide the fake, hypocritical facade on ACORN. He forced a story on the world that the mainstream media did not want to and tried very hard not to cover. And in so doing made undeniably clear the criminal and downright abhorrent activities in which our leading community organizers were involved.

Maybe being an community organizer wasn't as patriotic as being one of our Founding Fathers as the mainstream media had led our nation to believe during the previous election. Maybe being a community organizer wasn't a qualification for president, after all.

He investigated the left using their own tactics and exposed them for the rot gut that they are. He showed us how our tax money works for their nefarious purposes. We knew the left used our money to cushion their own paychecks and secure their own rock star lifestyles. But, not even the most cynical among us, however, was prepared for the level of street thuggery ensconced in that Democrat money laundering scheme. No one was quiet prepared to watch our tax dollars go towards helping someone start a brothel using underage sex slaves.

But, it got better.

In so dong, he didn't just expose ACORN. He exposed the secular-left machine, as every well-oiled part from those in government, to the media, to academia cried foul at Breitbart's tactics and not the criminal activity entrenched in the culture at ACORN.

To hell with those teenage sex slaves, not to mention women's rights. An ACORN employee was filmed without consent!

And in so doing, he showed us how to fight. This is how Conservatives go on offense, baby.

I fell in love the moment he opened his mouth and kept falling in love with every new utterance.

I can't put my finger on my favorite moment. They are all my favorite, from when he declares war on mainstream media and tells them we're on to them, to when he credits drunkenness from saving him from leftist propaganda during his college years, to his epiphany on the Frankfurt school and the depressive left's determination to destroy the utopia they found in golden era Hollywood where they settled after fleeing Nazi Germany.

It's all great. Enjoy. Remember. And, fight on!

The Conquest of Paris

Not to worry. Europe's never been invaded before. It's not about to be taken over now by a backwards, pagan religion no matter how zealous its followers.

Saddleback Church Is Fallen, Is Fallen!

In an article for the Orange County Register published Feb. 23, 2012 Jim Hinch writes, "The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America's most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God." [emphasis mine]

Wow. It just kind of takes your breath away, doesn't it?

Where to start? It appears as if Rick Warren has decided that finding "a path to end the 1,400 years of misunderstanding between Muslims and Christians" is the responsibility of The Church - the body of believers of which Christ is the head - and his church in particular.


He has put his pastor of interfaith outreach (whatever that means), Abraham Meulenberg, in charge of a ministry called, King's Way, which operates under the umbrella of his Peace Plan. Abraham, working in conjunction with Imam Jihad Turk (I'm not making this up) co-authored a document outlining common ground shared between Islam and Christianity. According to the article, "The document affirms that Christians and Muslims believe in "one God" and share two central commandments: "love of God" and "love of neighbor." The document also commits both faiths to three goals: Making friends with one another, building peace and working on shared social service projects. The document quotes side-by-side verses from the Bible and the Koran to illustrate its claims." [again, emphasis mine]

In a fever of agreement they also decided that they,"wouldn't try to evangelize each other." According to Turk, they would, "witness to each other but it would be out of 'Love Thy Neighbor,' not focused on conversion." [emphasis all mine]

I'm sorry, what exactly is your witness focused on then? How good you can make the world? How great you are to your families? What nice people you are? The way in which God prospers you? What exactly is a witness that is focused on something other than bringing God to a sinner and how does that go? "Hey, brother Ibram, check out my new car, hot wife and talented kids Praise God. And, I’m really nice too."

God Himself brought Himself to us in the form of His Son. It was long, and hard and costly for Him but His love for us is greater than any obstacle in His way. It is His will for us that we be reconciled to Him through Christ Jesus. What then should His followers bring, other than the good news of God's redemptive plan, to those outside of God's redemption?

But, I digress.

Let's begin with the totally bogus affirmations and then conclude with the tragically asinine goals.

The document is slightly more nuanced, claiming that both faiths believe in "one God" than the writer of the article's summation of the ministry in which he writes that the theological principles acknowledge the we believe in the same God.

These two assertions have important, if subtle, distinctions. And while both are flat wrong, they are wrong for different reasons. So I will address them each accordingly.

Christians do not worship one God. We worship The God. He is Yewah. That is His name. We translate this LORD in our bibles. It is the name He has given Himself to distinguish Himself from amongst every false god, including Allah.

Pagans worship one god. Even if they worship thousands of gods they almost always worship one god over all the rest. Luciferians worship one god. He is the god of light and knowledge. Free Masons worship one god. He is the sun god sometimes called Nimrod, sometimes called Osiris, sometimes Apollos. Allah is one god. He is, in fact, the moon god, as this excellent article thoroughly demonstrates by the overwhelming evidence in the archeological record.

Not so with Christians. We worship I AM, Yaweh, the Only Wise God. And our God is peerless. He will not sit in the company of other Gods. In Isaiah 42:8 God says bout Himself "I am Yahweh. That is my name. I will not give my glory to another, nor [share] my praise [with] engraved images [idols, gods]." And again, in Exodus 20:5, God says about idols and false gods, "Never worship them or serve them, because I, the LORD your God, am a God who does not tolerate rivals."

God is unequivocal and explicit about his uniqueness and place in the universe and there are many more such verses in the Bible besides these. But, that fact that God says it once, should be enough for any Christian including Rick Warren. After all, to love God is to obey him. And I've just doubled that threshold by providing two verses as proof. Therefore creating a ministry in which Yaweh and Allah are co-equals can only be done in direct defiance of God's decrees.

Let me be clear; Creating peace when at all possible between yourself and another person, whether that person is your selfish, annoying little sister or your Muslim neighbor or your best friend, is the will of God in Christ Jesus. But creating peace between opposing religions, authorities, and philosophies is expressly not the will of God in Christ Jesus. It was about opposing religions and ideologies that Christ said to his disciples in Mathew 10:34, "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

To reiterate, Christ always advocated interpersonal peace between man and his neighbor and man and God. Peace is made possible only through His sacrifice. That is the Good News. But, Christ never advocated peace between God and all the many and varied gods who oppose Him. That is because Christ did only and perfectly the will of His Father in Heaven. And our Heavenly Father is a jealous God who will not share us with another.

Furthermore, neither do we worship the same god, not in name or in nature.

Our god is the Blessed, Triune, Father God who exists in eternity in relationship with the Son and the Holy Spirit. Allah is the lone God who exists in relationship only to himself.

Our god is blessed, eternally joyful, worshipful and creative. As God commanded man to worship the LORD, your God, He also worships Himself as there is none higher, nothing superior or better in all the universe for Him to set His affection upon. To do otherwise would be idolatry.

In worshiping Himself to the utmost, and with unbounded joy, focusing upon every aspect of His being, every thought of His mind, and every of His actions perfectly and limitlessly, He begets the Son who is the exact image or representation of Himself, or God of God. The Son is the result of a happy, worshipful God reflecting upon Himself in perfection to the utterest reaches of eternity. And the perfect, undiminished, and limitless worship that arises between Father God and God the Son, as the son magnifies His Father and the Father exalts the Son, produces God the Holy Spirit.

The Father begets the Son, the Holy Spirit is the testimony between them. Three Gods, undiminished in representation, in One God, The Father.

A blessed, worshipful God must exist in a Trinity. Period.

When God declared that it was not good that man should be alone it is because He in not alone.

Allah - just ask his followers - is one god. That is why they believe that they are not pagan, although they are, but Christians are pagan, although we aren't. Because our God is three and theirs is one.

Far from this making their god superior to ours, his oneness belies his true being.

In order for Allah to exist in eternity by himself, he cannot be blessed but cursing, he cannot be worshipful but blaspheming, and he cannot be creative but destroying.

A god that exists alone, in the absence of community within himself, is a demon pure and simple.

If he does not worship himself it is because he can’t because there exists One greater than he to focus upon, dividing his attention. Therefore, his energy is spent in opposing and trying to destroy Him.

And that pretty much sums up the purpose and thrust of his religion and his followers. By their god we know them.

That brings us to the three goals of King’s Way. Although the goals are distinct - friendship, peace, and social service - they arise out of the same error, so I will deal with them as one.

I have long sensed that Rick Warren's now famous thesis, "It's not about you." as stated in the opening sentence of his blockbuster book, The Purpose Drive Life, while certainly true, missed the greater truth.

Not only is it not about you, it is not about this life, either.

Everything, everything, everything in this life is loss. From the first breath we take to the day we die and everything in between, it is all loss. There is nothing that is gain, not the most precious gift or the expensive item, or the most impressive legacy. It is all loss.

When Jesus died to give us life and life more abundantly. He died to give us the Father and the abundance that is only found in Him. He did not die to give us a better form of death. He did not die to improve upon this present loss.

The only thing we have that is gain, is Christ and those relationships we build in Christ Jesus. These, we will take with us to Heaven. Absolutely nothing else will remain, not friendships apart from Christ, not bonds of peace and certainly not social services. Those are death and loss.

It is unfathomable to me that Rick Warren would value his friendship above the Gospel of Christ. What sinners need is a savior, not really cool Christians to hang out with.

If you prefer to offer sinners something other than the undiluted Gospel that leads to conversion, you may consider yourself nice but you may no longer consider yourself loving.

Let's be clear about the future these Muslims face apart from Christ and the imminent danger they are constantly in. Hell is WTF?!? scary and horrible beyond comprehension. The wages of sin is death and it is absolute in every generation and always only a heartbeat away for any of us. Apart from Christ we are dead already.

But, those in Christ Jesus do not die but go from life to life. Death, where is your sting?

If I'm given two minutes with a Muslim, I'm sharing Christ. Not taking every opportunity to bring a damned soul out of the constant danger of eternal fire into the security of eternal life is not loving.

Furthermore, this is God's purpose in Christ Jesus: To seek and save sinners, to sanctify his children, and to glorify them. Friendship, peace and especially social services are nowhere found to be His stated purpose even if they are sometimes found in the Bible as examples of a working faith.

If we are to be driven towards any purpose, it should be God's. Any purpose apart from God's is folly.

And By I'm Sorry I Mean, You're Welcome!

An amusing alternate apology to President Karzai for your consideration...

by C. C. Kurzeja 2012 All Rights Reserved

Welcome, Now Saddle Up

It seems that, after all, Richard Dawkins can't actually be sure God does not exist and now considers himself an agnostic. Well, well, well... in that the obvious has finally occurred to him, I say, Welcome!

After years of declaring himself supremely rational and purely scientific he has ceded what his oppenents have maintained all along, that his belief in atheism had nothing to do with science or reason as evidenced by the long overdue admission that no discipline of science or logic can ever prove his assertion. His belief in a godless universe is not the natural outcome of a rational inquiry into the matter, but rather an irrational adherence based upon a deeply held conviction that a world governed by scientific laws must be secular, which of course, is a hypothesis that can only be taken by faith.

Atheism is religion. But, then, so is Agnosticism. And, there's the rub.

Mr. Dawkins will no doubt find Agnosticism a couch in which to rest his doubts, but he will find no comfort there. He will soon discover that nature abhors a vacuum and that he has just, by his own volition, unsealed the chamber in which hordes of gods will rush through.

Agnosticism is not a safe, protected corner of in the realm of Atheism. It is an unprotected pedestal in which he is precariously perched upon in the center of a universe bustling with gods. But his fate is made worse yet because until he concedes that the gods he can't prove do not exist, might in fact actually exist, he is left without any framework in which to deal with them. The Agnostic is blind to the very gods in whose midst he now resides, deaf to their threats and mute to oppose them.

He will soon discover that Agnosticism is not a defensible retreat behind some non existent bulwark in a godless universe, but rather a reckless leap into the bubbling cauldron of paganism. He now worships the "Unkown God" that the apostle Paul discovered in the temple of Zeus on his famous missionary trip to Rome.

Without the shield of science, the Agnostic will soon find his position defenseless. He will now search for a new defense.

The good news is that history, not science, will inform the Agnostic that it was Christ who vanquished the pagan gods with his advent, even the Unknown God whom he now serves. The myriad gods that ordered society and family life in antiquity have today been marginalized down to cartoon figures by the appearance of God Himself in the Man, Jesus. It is the testimony of the apostles that will inform him who is the God of his gods.

While science is found lacking for any answer on such matters, the history of civilization is not. The written testimony, the recorded history, The Word, The Bible, is found perfectly able to order the gods in the universe he now resides.

Welcome to this crowded universe, Mr. Dawkins. I suggest you grab a Bible and saddle up!

License Plate Police

Newt Gingrich spoke on the campaign trail yesterday about the fundamental difference in perspective between a Liberal and Conservative. He illustrated this difference by telling a funny story about the time, not so long ago, under the Carter administration when Americans were only allowed to by gas on alternating days depending upon whether their license plate ended in an even or odd number.

A friend of the Speaker's, who was thirteen at the time, was actually given a screwdriver and the job of changing the license plate of whichever car needed gas that day to match the required number.

The Speaker than made the point that when a law is so stupid that the average thirteen-year old can easily circumvent it, you know you have a fantastically dumb law. He went on to explain that if know that you're a Conservative if it is obvious to you to repeal that dumb law and you know that you're a Liberal if you immediately propose to put License Plate Police at every gas station.

Hilarious, right?

But now I'd like to illustrate how far left we've moved since even the senseless economic policies of the seventies. If that law were in effect today, this state and this administration would have already hired those License Plate Police to thoroughly investigate every vehicle before purchasing gas.

If found guilty, the officer would immediately issue a modest fine in the amount of $500 and declare that he also witnessed you not wearing a seat belt, issue you a fine for that infraction and bring the total bill up to $650. All of this would only take about forty-five minutes out of your day and since we all have total job security for life just like every last government employee, we will happily tolerate the delay.

In addition, these License Plate Police, who will henceforth only be referred to as the Working Class by the people who created their jobs, as part of their salary will be paid for a two-week vacation every year, for not working every federal holiday, for sick days, in addition to receiving splendiforous health insurance benefits the like of which are unheard of in the private sector. For their duty and sacrifice, they will retire at the ripe middle-age of 55 to lounge in the sun in Florida and travel the world while they receive %80 of their salary every year for life and the life of their spouse. All of this will be paid for by their neighbors, or as they refer to them "law breakers", whom they will make a living handing out fines to.

Eventually the License Plate Police will need a four-year degree in Plate Authentication from a certified college in order to qualify for the job. It will cost $40,000 dollars to get the degree from his local college but that's okay. The aspiring Plate Police officer will easily qualify for a student loan at a ridiculously low interest rate because the people he will someday be issuing tickets to are being taxed to subsidize his loan. This degree, manifestly, will be worthless in any other field of enterprise in the private or public sector. No matter. It is a degree and as such the Plate Police Officer will be entitled to compensation in pay equal to that of a person in the private sector with a similar degree. Of course, with every promotion an officer will need to attain another worthless degree which will then entitle him to yet another pay raise in accordance with what he would be making in the private sector had he chosen that route.

And that is how the Working Class will be making the same as your average doctor.

In Which The Blond Melts Down

Overheard by an unkown man on WLS radio this morning on Ann Coulter whom he referred to as "Howard Stern's Sister": I will sell all of her books for a penny. I would donate them but I don't think I could find anyone who would actually read them. So, therefore, I will sell all of her books for a penny and I will never buy another one again.
[Standing Ovation! Wild Applause Ensues.]

Mmmm, sweetheart, about your "Most Conservative Candidate In The Race" Barbara Streisand regarding Mitt Romney, nobody's buying it no matter how many times you say it, on how many tv shows, regardless of how many times you toss your blond hair around or roll your big blue eyes.

He balanced the budget without raising taxes, you claim? An Associated Press fact check disagrees: "Romney largely held the line on tax increases but the record is mixed. Massachusetts raised business taxes by $140 million with measures mostly recommended by Romney. As well, the Republican governor and Democratic lawmakers raised hundreds of millions of dollars from higher fees and fines, another form of taxation. Romney himself proposed raising nearly $60 million by creating 33 new fees and increasing 57 others. Anti-tax advocates praised his support for income tax cuts while objecting to his course on business taxes and fees."

Oh, yeah, Ann, tax business and cha-ching people to death with fees and nobody will ever suspect you're really a progressive.

You write, with no apparent sense of irony: "Romney pushed the conservative alternative to national health care that, had it been adopted in the 49 other states, would have killed Obamacare in the crib by solving the health insurance problem at the state level."

Are you kidding me? [double-take] Are you kidding me???

Okay. Mitt really is for the private sector, but instead he imposed upon the free peoples of MA an abominable tyranny called Romneycare that he ardently defends to this day. And I don't care that it was passed by a plurality at the time. That bill effects all citizens for all time. It does not have an expiration date. It does not twilight after the current voters are no longer around to happily milk their neighbors for healthcare. It applies to all future citizens for all time, none of whom will ever be offered a say in it. This is truly Democracy at work and why our Founding Father's referred to that form of government as Mobocracy.

Newt is calling for an open and thorough audit of the Fed as well a greatly reducing its size and power.

Newt is for reducing the Dept. of Education to about 10% of what it is today, relegating it to research.

Newt is for demolishing the EPA.

Newt is for a 12.5% corporate income tax, allowing 100% expensing of new equipment and a 15% optional flat tax. Boom-shack-lacka!! By contrast, Mitt's tax plan is so conservative he's had to scratch it in light of his un-inevitability, and come up with something that's actually, you know, kinda' conservative.

Newt is for having an optional plan to privatize social security.

There is a true Conservative in this race Ann. Get on board. It's not too late.

Conservative Is As Conservative Does

Romney is coming out with a "bold" new, flatter tax plan.


People, this is why this drawn-out primary race is good for us. It is giving us - the ignored every-man, the Tea Party/Regan Conservative - a loud, powerful voice.

The establishment wanted this thing wrapped up for Romney after Florida. They knew that was his only chance at winning this thing. They planned to swamp his foes with negative and downright false advertisements and to overwhelm any opposition with their well-monied machine. That was their plan because they knew Romney couldn't win on issues or substance. You know, "Democrats fall in love with their candidate, Republicans fall in line" and all that Barbara Streisand.

Too bad, warriors like Newt, Santorum and Paul either did not get that message or ignored it.

His tax plan was a piece of crap, same-old same-old, and they tried to make us choke on it. It belied his progressive leanings. Now, in order to stay viable, we have forced him to the right. He's suddenly seen the light and is going to propose a flatter system. I actually hope it is fantastic. I hope his tax plan forces his opponents to the right of him.

Again, whoo-hooo and amen! Now, let's hold is feet to the fire.

He should have proposed a serious, fiscally-conservative, free-market tax plan to begin with and then he could have pointed to that to inform voters of his conservative ideals.

Well, better late than never. And Santorum, I'm talking about you!

Newt And Isabel On Energy

"It may be set down as an axiom that in a clash between two nations or cultures, if one uses a higher potential of energy than the other, that one must win."
Isabel Paterson - The God of the Machine

Isabel Paterson, the framer of the modern libertarian movement, in her groundbreaking tome about energy and the political mechanisms in which it is channeled, The God Of The Machine, explained the plight of the American Native this way, "The subjugation of the native American races was a foregone conclusion, because Europe used a much higher potential of energy. The people of the most advanced American culture did not even employ animal traction, and had not invented the wheel, nor come to the iron age. They traveled afoot, and were their own beasts of burden. Their mode of the conversion of energy was the human body and manual appliances. Their terror of the European invaders with horses and fire-arms is usually attributed to stupefaction at the mere strangeness of the phenomena. It was rather the intelligent apprehension of a stepped-up power they could not match." (emphasis mine)

The modern liberal would have us believe that the indigenous Americans were wide-eyed, simple minded and, above all pure in heart, (of course, because no person has ever been swindled by succumbing to a base desire to have what one has not worked for) and the ruthless European cheated and stole from them by exploiting their good nature and limited intellect.

Never mind the soft bigotry inherent in that assumption.

The European may have been ruthless and dishonest and the American Native may have been wide-eyed and pure. The Christian - and anyone else possessing even the smallest grasp of human nature - will have to acknowledge that sin and virtue resided in both classes of people and manifested accordingly in their dealings.

But here is the thrust of Isabel's axiom and it bears the scrutiny of centuries and myriad diverse societies, that no amount of trickery or abuse could have subjugated a higher source of energy output to a lower. The natives were vulnerable not because they had no guile, but because they had no industry. Any victory the European gained upon settling the shores of America would have been small and short lived if the natives had had an energy conduit equal or superior to the enterprise capitalism that carried Columbus to the New World in search of a new trade route.

Another misconception is that our white diseases wiped them out. This is but partial truth. It was their lack of any energy conduit to speak of that created a static society. In their insulated existence, they hadn't the opportunity that the Europeans did, after centuries of trading in foreign lands, to build up their immunities.

But the greater truth is that small pox kills white people, too. However, America, with our vast conduits of energy routes that spanned the distance of the globe and of the decades, being firmly planted in the most stable of all foundations, that of private property, was able to manufacture a cure for the disease and thereby bless all people of all languages for all time.

Energy conduits are measured in societies by the distance they travel over space and time. Remember that as you watch this very important video on energy by Newt Gingrich.

Currently, the left is doing everything in its power to shorten our energy conduit in America. This will leave our eventual subjugation to those powers who are developing energy conduits a foregone conclusion. There is a lot more at stake here than merely the price of gasoline at the gas pump.

On Birthdays and Teenagers

I thank God for Camp Harvest, the best place on Earth according to my kids. I thank God for an awesomely fun youth ministry that pours into my children the things of God. I thank God for goofy teens as there is nothing in the world quite like them and I will be very sorry when I find myself without their company.

My daughter's 16th birthday landed on the day she went to winter camp this year. Nothing could have made her happier. She told me when I picked her up, "Next year I'll turn 17, my Golden Birthday, on the second day of Winter Camp. The year after, I'll turn 18 on the last day of Winter Camp. You are going to drop off a child and pick up an adult. How weird is that?"


Great Casi, I kinda' feel like puking now.

Jesus Isn't Running

My friend Marlene, in defense of Santorum, recently said, " That's why character is so important. We need men of character in Washington DC instead of arrogant, power-hungry, egotistical maniacs who care only about themselves. But men of character are scarce these days, not because government got corrupted, but because society got corrupted. In other words, we have to fix our society before we'll ever fix our government,"

As to the first part of her assertion, she errs in massively understating the solution. We don't simply need men of character. We need men of perfect character who walk perfectly according to their infallible conscience at at all times to the utmost. We need Jesus. And not just Jesus, but thousands of Jesus' filling every office great and small in Washington. If we approach the problem as a character deficiency, the solution is impossible to attain and does not anywhere present itself to us in time or space.

There simply isn't a man with broad enough shoulders to stay the crush of this massively bloated secular-socialist machine in Washington. A man does not have the character to stop a tsunami, neither does he have the character to stop Washington.

And here the the un-frickin-believable genius of our founding fathers reveals itself to us. Our magnificent document of governance was created, in large part by men who were architects and inventors and who understood the functions of machinery, to run perpetually and indefinitely by imperfect men. The checks and balances of power between the three branches of government as assembled by our founding fathers perfectly inoculated the citizens against abuse by well meaning individuals and ne'er-do-wells, alike.

Our Constitution was written with the assumption that sinners would be governing her people. We don't need better men in office. We need a return to the Constitution.

Only one man in this race is speaking about restoring the balance of powers as enumerated in the Constitution, and that is Newt.

My problem with Santorum is not just that he voted to raise the debt ceiling five times while in the Senate.

It's not only that he requested billions of dollars in pork projects for Pennsylvania while he was in office and that "
A review of some of his earmarks, viewed alongside his political donations, suggests that the river of federal money Mr. Santorum helped direct to Pennsylvania paid off handsomely in the form of campaign cash.” (Michael Luo and Mike McIntire, The New York Times, 1/15/12).

It's not even that he voted 51 times to increase spending in a single session and not one time - that would be a big, fat ZERO - to cut spending, or that he twice voted for the "Bridge To Nowhere". And defended it!

No, my problem is that he still seems dedicated to the proposition of big government. His tax plan belies his progressive leanings. Just consider what he wants to do. He wants to create a special set of tax incentives for the manufacturing industry.

What gives him the right?

Consider what conservatives are saying about his tax plan.
“Giving a preferential rate is picking winners and losers through the tax code,” said Curtis Dubay, a tax policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. “The goal of tax reform should be a neutral tax code.”

“This is not free-market economics, this is trying to tilt the market toward manufacturing, and it will hurt the economy rather than help it, because resources would be artificially diverted from other sectors of the economy to manufacturing,” Dubay said.

Kevin Hassett, director of economic policy studies at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said Santorum’s plan would “create the biggest tax dodge in history,” as businesses raced to redefine themselves as manufacturers.

“How do you define manufacturing?” asked Andy Roth of the conservative Club for Growth. “Do movie studios manufacture films? Do book publishers, when they send a .pdf of a manuscript to China, are they manufacturing books? Companies are going to game this.”

In short, Santorum's tax plan is a lobbyists dream come true. This is more of the same. One party favors one sector of the economy and the other party favors the other sector of the economy and a civil war brews in the space between. And that is why Rick Santorum is NOT my first choice.

It's not his sweater vest that is old school - it's his politics.

Santorum: Pro-Earmarks, Anti-Tea Party

Who you gonna' believe; Santorum, or your lying eyes? This is a *must see* video. In only a few minutes he can more than convince you of his passion for big-government.

In his own words: He's not a Libertarian. He will fight against libertarian influence in the Republican party. He has real concerns about the libertarian and Tea Party movement within the Republican Party and he will do his best to "vocally and publicly oppose it."

Wow. Big government Republican and PROUD of it. But, really, all one needed to do was examine the piece of crap tax bill he's proposing in order to deduce what kind of Republican he is - "W".2 all the way.

This is why he is not the answer for our time. We don't need the most moral man to lead us. We need the man most capable of dismantling the secular-socialist machine and replacing it with free-market, liberty-respecting, Constitutional alternatives, or Newt.

Corrupt, Not Conservative

Rick Santorum is the most conservative in the race? I believe you mean the most corrupt, according to CREW (Citizen's for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington), anyway. They named Santorum in their list of "Most Corrupt Members of Congress" for both 2005 and 2006. In 2005, he was one of three Senators to be named. Quite a distinction.

Change or Die

Gingrich addressed business leaders in Michigan with the truth: Change or Die. The same could be said for Illinois. This video is long but oh, so worth it! What he's talking about is dismantling current systems and replacing them with free-market, constitutional, liberty-respecting ideas. He is the only candidate with the experience and know-how to do this. He is the only candidate who has indeed already done this. We need the best plan not the best person. A plan is something that can be implemented, step by step, line upon line until completed. A person is someone who cannot but fail us in some measure great or small.

Severely Confused

Mitt Romney described his governing style as "severely conservative" in an attempt to convince the skeptical base that he is, indeed, the one to challenge The One this fall.


I ask you, what kind of conservative would ever describe their political philosophy and values as severe? Passionately conservative, maybe. Very conservative, yes. But severe? That adjective is normally reserved to describe punishment, damaging natural phenomenon, deadly epidemics and other maladies.

In general, authentic Conservatives tend to describe their views in more empowering terms because to do otherwise would be to slander the greatest form of government ever conceived by man. Duh.

Psssst, Coulter! Stop Embarrassing Yourself

Ann Coulter addressed CPAC today and in addition to putting her Cornell degree to good use by doing second rate stand-up schtick aimed at Democrats, she implored Conservatives to vote for Mitt Romney of all people. She insists that she *knows* that this plastic, rich, white liberal is the only Republican in the race who can beat Obama. As this is a stunning departure from her previous assertions, not to mention the plain facts of history, that no moderate Republican can ever beat a Democrat in a general election, she's resorted to a vile two-pronged strategy to deliberately obfuscate her blatant hypocrisy. First, she tells a big fat lie. She makes the outlandish claim the Mitt Romney is, in fact, the most Conservative candidate in the race and repeats this falsehood as often as she can, regardless of facts. Then she uses her considerable sway within alternative media (Read: Matt Drudge) to conduct a truly bizarre ad hominem attack campaign against Newt Gingrich, the man who is, in fact, the most Conservative candidate in the race.
Now, she's been ordering Republicans to back Romney for many months, now. And she's just so darn smart and right all the time about everything that she just can't figure out why Americans aren't collectively carrying Mitt Romney to the convention on their shoulders yet. She suspects it might have something to do with his personality.
She says, "You can't call him dumb. You can't call him crazy. You can call him square, and that seems to be what a lot of right-wingers don't like about him...I think we have had enough of hip. Hip has nearly wrecked the country. Let's try square for a while."
No, Ann, not by half. We don't like him because he's liberal.
Just take a hard look at his economic plan, for starters. The Wall Street Journal called it timid. Or, to put it in simple Tea Party language, it sucks. The Tax Foundation, a policy research organization in Washington, graded his tax plan and gave it a C-. Caroline Baum wrote in The Washington Post, "Romney's economic vision has hardly stepped beyond a 30 percent corporate tax break, something even Obama has pondered." In fact, it basically returns us to the Clinton era when we were treading water and about to go over a fall. Oh yeah, Ann, free-market, liberty-loving Americans have been clamoring to go back to the Clinton years with ideas approved of by Obama. You've sure got us pegged.
No, Ann, you silly girl. Square is not the problem. Square is a given. If you call yourself a Republican, much more a Conservative, and you don't understand that you are hereby eternally banished to the nerd table at the cafeteria-of-life by virtually a unanimous consent among just about everyone in the undeniably cool movie, tv, and music industries, you are delusional. Square will do just fine when it embodies a fiery Conservative position. Square is inspiring when articulating American exceptionalism and how Liberty empowers even the meanest amongst us. Square is rousing when it challenges us to pursue our own happiness and defend the kingdom of our God given rights.
For your information, Newt Gingrich is square, Ann. Why don't you take your own advice and give him a try?

Obama's Muslim Allegiance

This video has been floating around for a while but it is so powerful I thought I should take the opportunity to share it. The reason it is so powerful is because it does not rely on persuasion or rhetoric to make a point, but only the President's own public admissions and actions. If you wonder if these pronouncements are truly indicative of his personal views or whether they merely display the open minded ethos so valued in Democratic societies, the answer depends upon who's viewing them. To the Western Judeo/Christian individual these statements and gestures could be easily interpreted as the appropriately inclusive attitude reflected in our multicultural society. But, to the Muslim, they signal his obedience and allegiance to Allah. And, to me, that’s what is frightening.

The Electability Lie

To many casual observers, it would appear that Romney’s smear campaign has been very effective against his Conservative opponents. After all, he’s won three states handily, hasn’t he? These wins are thereby serving as something the Romney camp can point to as evidence of a claim that their camp has made all along, which is that their guy is not only the most electable against Obama in the fall, he is the only electable candidate the RNC can run against Obama in the fall. If he can mop up with Newt so easily, certainly he’ll have no problem against Obama, right? Or so they’d lead you to believe. But that line of reasoning doesn’t hold up. Romney will in fact be our weakest candidate against Obama, and here’s why.

Reason number 1: Romney is a Republican and Obama is a Democrat. Romney pulled a nifty trick by getting Coulter in his pocket, that’s for sure. I’ve never seen a Republican so thoroughly attempt to annihilate a fellow Republican, before the race even began, as Coulter did and continues to do with Newt. Clearly, it is her opinion that the public – dare I say the Tea Party – cannot be trusted with picking our nominee. And while the masterful orchestration of negative headlines, photos and outright false testimony given enormous space and time on The Drudge Report seems to be effectively reinforcing every slanderous accusation the Romney camp floats out, the Drudge/Coulter cabal will seem silly in comparison to the left’s arsenal. Do you really believe that any amount of sway, even if it is total in extent, that Drudge/Coulter will have on their readers will be any match against: NBC; CBS; ABC; CNN; Bill Maher; Jon Stewart; Jay Leno; The guy that looks like Alfred E. Newman, Saturday Night Live; Every cool musician/rock star; All the young and beautiful actors/actresses; sly references on tv sit-coms; et, al.?

Reason number 2: Romney is a rich white guy and Obama is a black guy from a broken family. Given America’s history, the onslaught of negative and spurious campaigning that Romney seems to rely heavily upon will not be tolerated easily even by Romney’s most ardent supporters. His party is going to be forced to wear his campaign tactics like a damp coat, as something we can’t wait to throw off and dry out. Ick!

Reason number 3: Romney will need cash and Obama won’t. Romney gained a victory in Florida by outspending his closest opponent 4 to 1. He ran 65 ads to Newt’s 1 and the vast majority of them were negative. To give you an idea of what an ineffective method of campaigning this is, Newt received 162 votes for every $1000 his campaign spent while Romney received 50 votes for every $1000 spent, according to figures released by the Washington Times. Mostly disturbingly, turnout was suppressed in every county Romney won. Does Romney really expect to win against Obama by suppressing turnout? Currently, Romney is able to drown his opponents in a sea of money and then ride atop the Drudge/Coulter fantasy float as Prom King of a sham Tea Party Parade. But, be certain that he will loose this advantage handily in the general election. Obama will outspend Romney 3 to 1. Again, Romney’s grand strategy of outspending his opponents by whatever fantastic sum it takes to secure the nomination will be met by Obama’s grand strategy of outspending him by whatever fantastic sum it takes to secure a second term. Obama will win against that strategy because Obama will have many times more in money and resources to spend. Most frightening is that it seems evident that Romney has no other tricks up his sleeve.

Romney will loose against Obama. It is as plain as day. That’s why we need a people strategy and not a money strategy. That’s why we need bold ideas and not timid ideas that only seek to manage the decline.
