Why We Don't Have Free Will

While doing research for this post, I discovered that the apparently definitive argument FOR free will is the example of Adam and Eve. They were both told by God not to eat the forbidden fruit and they exercised free will and ate the fruit anyway. Hmmmm, well, that's nice, however, had Eve and Adam not eaten the fruit, then God would not have manifested as Jesus and returned to provide the elect with salvation. Thus, Adam and Eve had no choice/free will.

 There are other passages as well that tend toward suggesting that we have free will. Here are a few: Ecclesiastes 9:10, Proverbs 21:5, Deuteronomy 30:19-20, Genesis 1:26, etc. Basically, this is obfuscation, because we have this from Revelation 20:15 "And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Also, from Romans 9:21 "Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?" We're the clay, not the potter.

Well, if an errant molecule in the universe means that God is not sovereign, then the same holds true for thought. If I have a thought that is completely independent from God's direction, then God is not the sovereign power in the universe.

We can't forget Calvin and his teachings on unconditional election, which extend from Father Augustine of Hippo: Calvin:  "We say, then, that Scripture clearly proves this much, that God by his eternal and immutable counsel determined once for all those whom it was his desire one day to admit to salvation, and those whom, on the other hand, it was his desire to doom to destruction. We maintain that this counsel, as regards the elect, is founded on his free mercy, without any respect to human worth, while those whom he dooms to destruction are excluded from access to life by a just and blameless, but at the same time incomprehensible judgment. In regard to the elect, we regard calling as the evidence of election, and justification as another symbol of its manifestation, until it is fully accomplished by the attainment of glory. But as the Lord seals his elect by calling and justification, so by excluding the reprobate either from the knowledge of his name or the sanctification of his Spirit, he by these marks in a manner discloses the judgment which awaits them."

John 15:16:  "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."

Let's say I am a video game programmer that makes a military video game that allows the characters to be played by thousands of players from all over the world. Since each player is not aware of the other player's moves, you always end up with chaos.You CAN have a definitive winner and loser, but there is always chaos.

"But, uh, Mike there is chaos on a real battlefield." Actually there isn't. The scene may appear chaotic, but we know it isn't due to the following scriptural passage: (Jeremiah 1:4-9) "Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.”But the Lord said to me,
“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’;
for to all to whom I send you, you shall go,
and whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Do not be afraid of them,
for I am with you to deliver you,
declares the Lord.”
Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me,
              "Behold, I have put my words in your mouth."
There are no translation issues with the sentence "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." Think about what this actually means, however. We live our entire lives thinking we have control over our decisions. The reality is that we can't. This makes particular sense in light of Matthew 7:1 "Judge not, that you be not judged." Frankly, I judge people all the time. I judge our current President. I shouldn't though, because every thought in his head has been put there by God; as has every thought in my head.
Think about that for a minute. Every conversation you have ever had with someone has not been your own original thought.....it couldn't be.  

There are over 7 billion people on Earth. If we all had but a single thought that was outside of God's direction, then imagine the result. We like to think we have control over our lives because it gives us the impression that we have actually accomplished something on our own. I first began to question this while working in commissioned sales. I studied the product information of the items I was selling and effectively related the features and benefits of the items a customer had an interest in and felt quite proud of myself when I made a sale........as if I had personally accomplished something. When you have the feeling of self accomplishment, it is easy to develop a hardened heart. I finally realized that I only had a sale because God wanted that particular customer to walk into the store and be my "up" as customers are called in the trade. 

Everything is God and God is everything. There are several articles out there demonstrating some good science that we actually live in a holographic universe. This actually makes a great deal of sense. Essentially, we are all players in a 3-D video game created by God. Why? Well, while there is much we do not know, two things we know absolutely exist are conscious thought and energy. Even if we had free will/independent thought, we would never be able to control more than a small part of the universe, accordingly, there must be a consciousness that is able to direct the entirety of the universe. This entity is God.

Again, we don't have free will because we can't have free will. Just sayin'.

Is a $15.00/Hour Minimum Wage Really That Crazy?

So, is a request for a $15/Hour minimum wage a bit nutty? 

During the Great Depression, my grandfather worked at a gas station, not as a mechanic, and made enough money to rent a house and support a wife and three kids with just himself working. How was this possible?

Before I get into that answer, let me state a few things up front. I have always been a conservative and until recently have been a die hard capitalist. Also, I have owned two small businesses. One had employees and the other was a sole proprietorship. For my business with employees, I did not think about paying a "livable" wage. An employee was hired as the work load demanded it. Pay was based on the skill set  of the employee plus the receivables the business took in. 

A business, unlike our government, cannot print money so it can only pay employees out of it's pool of cash received. Now, I wasn't a tightwad when it came to employee pay, but I didn't pay far more than was appropriate for the worker skill set either. 

If a business is in a position to pay all of it's employees a "livable" wage, plus benefits, should it? That is a moral question, but let's get back to my original question of how my grandfather could live on a minimum wage job during the Great Depression. 

In 1933 the minimum wage was established at 25 cents per hour. This legislation was repealed and reestablished in 1938 at the same 25 cents an hour. Back then we were on the silver standard. A quarter in 1933 was 90% silver and 10% copper. If a worker took his pay in silver coins and we took those coins today and cashed them in for their bullion value, at today's rates that quarter would be worth between three and nine dollars or so. There is, however, a much bigger point to consider and that is what was the buying power of twenty five cents in 1933 versus today's minimum wage?

Goods were valued differently back then. Generally, items sold at retail were based on a percentage over the actual cost of manufacture, distribution and REASONABLE entrepreneurial profit. Typically, a retailer would double the purchase price of an item. This was called "Keystoning." So, if a grocery store paid a nickel for a loaf of bread, they could sell it for a dime and make enough gross profit to cover their expenses with some left over. Today, items are priced at what the market will bear.

A loaf of bread today, based on current wheat prices, costs 17 cents to produce and package. The manufacturer then has to cover its costs and profit when it is sold to the retailer. The retailer then charges what the market will bear. In my area, a loaf of bread purchased at the grocery store will cost me between $1.99-$2.99/loaf. I can get day old bread for a dollar or less.

The long and short of it is that a 25 cent per hour minimum wage in 1933, had roughly the same buying power as $14.00-$18.00/hour does today.

Unadulterated corporate greed and the feminist movement have largely contributed to the wage problems of today. WWII showed us that women could do jobs that were traditionally considered men's jobs. When the feminist movement pushed for unlimited access for women in the workplace, that doubled the available labor pool and drove down the wage an employer needed to pay because he now had a large surplus labor pool. Today's influx of illegal aliens has further driven down wages.

With third world reproduction rates what they are and an open borders policy, the current minimum wage will become irrelevant as many greedy employers will risk what are in actuality non-existent criminal penalties for hiring undocumented workers. Workers will be happy to be getting $7.25/Hour and part-time hours.

The reality is that, at one time, the minimum wage had the same purchasing power as $14.00-$18.00 does today. Unless the worker pool is greatly reduced, we will NEVER return to the days a person received a livable minimum wage.

*An example: In 1933 a movie cost 10 cents to view. So, your 25 cent minimum wage would get you two and one half movie tickets. Today, a first run movie ticket costs around ten dollars. Thus, two and one half movie tickets are worth twenty-five dollars today, but with the reduced buying power, your $7.25/hr. federal minimum wage will only buy you less than a single movie ticket.

ISIS WILL target the White House.

There have been seemingly credible reports that ISIS will attack targets along the U.S. southern border. Abu Mosa, the now deceased ISIS press officer made the comment a couple of weeks back that ISIS "will raise the flag of Allah in the White House."

I believe this will be the actual target. first, let's look at who we are fighting:

" Nikolai Sennels is a Danish psychologist who has done extensive research into a little-known problem in the Muslim world: the disastrous results of Muslim inbreeding brought about by the marriage of first cousins.

> This practice, which has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses, was sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generations (1,400 years) in the Muslim world. This practice of inbreeding will never go away in the Muslim world, since Muhammad is the ultimate example and authority on all matters, including marriage.

> The massive inbreeding in Muslim culture may well have done virtually irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to its intelligence, sanity, and health."

OK, so, we are starting with a group of inbred religious fanatics who are a few fries short of a happy meal. Accordingly, it makes perfect sense that they would go for a quick psychological blow to the U.S., which would also send a message to the rest of the world that they could hit us at our heart. Kind of an Islamic Doolittle Raid. 

You could temporarily take the White House with a few hundred fanatics and you could occupy it for a couple of hours...............which is plenty of time to get a photo op of the ISIS (or is it now just the Islamic State?) flag flying over the White House.

"A local news station found Border Patrol documents that indicated that thousands of OTMs — “Other Than Mexicans” — have been caught crossing the Mexican border into the U.S., including some known terrorists.
But since that report, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has DENIED that there is any “credible evidence” that any terrorists have crossed over.
So the reporter took another look — and the evidence he found is even worse than originally revealed.
He found that 300 terrorists from the Somali Al Queda group Al-Shabaab — the group behind the terror attack at the Kenyan shopping mall last September – have entered the U.S. and are unaccounted for."
Our government would be wise to take additional precautions to protect the White House.

Ferguson, Missouri: Michael Brown; Just Another Dead Nigga?

There are several issues to consider in light of what has been going on in Ferguson, Missouri since the shooting of 18 year old negro Michael Brown.  

The civil unrest started when supposed witnesses to the shooting claimed that Brown was needlessly shot in the back, then turned toward the officer and was shot several more times in the front, while having his hands in the air. An autopsy performed by medical examiner Michael Baden, at the request of the family, showed that Mr. Brown was not shot in the back and his other preliminary findings indicate it may well have been a case of self defense.

One larger that bears discussion is the militarization of local U.S. law enforcement:

"The 1033 program has transferred more than $4.3 billion worth of military equipment to law enforcement since its inception in 1997 – including more than $449 million in 2013 alone, according to the Defense Logistics Agency'sLaw Enforcement Support Office, which administers the program."

If the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act prevents the military from being used against civilians, then the "end around" is just to militarize the police. The dumbing down of Americans via the libtardized public school system has not only permeated law enforcement as well, but a recent court decision mandated that police departments hire those with low IQ's. So we end up with the situation that we now have a militarized, low IQ, thug police force in many jurisdictions. 

Let's throw in a lousy economy and a race of people who are, ON AVERAGE, one to two standard deviations below whites and Asians in IQ (I.E. 15-30 points), have the mentality of an 11 year old, are two and one half times more prone to violence than whites and completely lack impulse control or thought of consequence and we get Ferguson, Missouri today.

Had Michael Brown lived, his future would likely have involved the Prison Industrial Complex. One thing that utterly stupid white apologists tend not to understand is that blacks have an overall net negative contributory value to society. Many of their alleged contributions are proven to be false. Since the signing of the civil rights legislation in the mid 1960's our government has spent at least $100,000 in aid for every black man, woman and child in the U.S. American blacks can get free education, low cost housing, free food, free child care, hiring preferences as well as low interest government loans they can use to start businesses, plus minority set aside government contracts. Despite all of these incentives, blacks remain, ON AVERAGE, a group of violent sub-human savages.

Just another dead nigga? Yep.

Why Robin Williams Had a Clue

via Tony Ortega

Actor/comedian Robin Williams died on 8/11/14 as a result of suicide. Bloggers such as Matt Walsh have weighed in on this and now I'm giving my take on it.

Some scientists have concluded that our universe is actually a holographic projection. I agree with this as it makes a good deal of sense, particularly in light of Christianity's belief in God.

During at least two church sermons I have listened to a quote was mentioned, to wit: If there is a single errant molecule in the universe, then God is not sovereign. If that is the assertion, then one can't just stop there. It must follow that if we have an errant thought then God is not sovereign. This completely negates the free will argument. EVERY thought we have comes from God. Factoring in the holographic universe, we all exist simply as thoughts of God projected in a manner that appears in tangible three dimension. Considering what we know about matter and energy, this also makes sense.

Most people go on about their lives dealing with the minutiae of everyday life, secure in their cocoons and never seeing the bigger picture. One will note that many of those who kill themselves are of well above average intelligence and are generally of great financial means. 

We discuss depression as it relates to suicide, but what is the underlying cause of depression? Does one appear to have a good childhood, but actually gets reared in a family devoid of love? Can one be depressed while growing up in a truly Godly household?

It is my belief that at least some people who kill themselves have enough leisure time to ponder the nature of things and come to the conclusion that life is basically bullshit. Now, if one is a Christian one understands that God is love and that we must love God and that God expects us to behave in a way that glorifies him.  If we receive favorable judgment, we live in peace and glory for an eternity. (Eternity.....a place where time does not exist) If we are condemned we go to hell for an eternity.

Suicide is self murder and thus violates the sixth commandment "thou shall not kill." Once you kill yourself you do not have the opportunity to repent and be saved so Robin is in hell. Consider my earlier comment that if God IS sovereign then we simply cannot have an independent thought.

God did not let Robin become a true Christian and Robin concluded that, despite accumulating earthly wealth, there was not enough meaning in his life to continue to live. For him, suicide served it's purpose.

Bottom line though, God is God. We all just follow our programming and hope for favorable judgment.

2014-Present     D.Michael Collins                                                                 Independent

The Independents were either Dimocrats or are union supporting left wingers, so, since 1967, with one exception, Toledo has been run by Dimocrats. What does this mean? Let's see who ran the 10 worst American cities in 2013:

Camden, NJ —Mayor Dana Redd, Democrat
Flint MI — Mayor Dayne Walling, Democrat
Detroit MI — Mayor Dave Bing/Mike Duggan, Democrat(s)
Oakland, CA — Mayor Jean Quan, Democrat
St. Louis, MO — Mayor Francis Slay, Democrat
Cleveland, OH — Mayor Frank Jackson, Democrat
Gary, IN — Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, Democrat
Newark NJ — Mayor Corey Booker/Luis Quintana, Democrat(s)
Bridgeport, CT — Mayor Bill Finch, Democrat
Birmingham, AL — Mayor William A. Bell, Democrat

So why do we have a water emergency in Toledo? The short answer is that a toxic chemical, microcystin, released by algae, is causing the problem.

Toledo has known about this potential issue for decades, but has done nothing about it. As is the case with most cities run by Dimocrats, the infrastructure is crumbling:

“An outside engineering firm was retained to evaluate the condition of the water treatment plant and identified the deterioration of the roofs and structural steel supports over the west and east plant filter galleries, flocculation basins, and connecting hallways,” city records said."

Interestingly, microcystin can be easily remediated by appropriate municipal treatment systems:

"Most of the common microcystin variants are well removed by activated carbon (Hart 
et al 1998; UKWIR 1996; Cook and Newcombe 2002). The exception is microcystin 
LA which is not readily removed and other processes are recommended (Cook and 
Newcombe 2002). For other microcystins wood-based, chemically activated carbon 
is the most effective, or a carbon with similar physical properties. Doses of powdered 
activated carbon required for removal to below the guideline value will depend on 
water quality, and site specific tests are recommended. Granular activated carbon 
filtration displays a limited lifetime for all toxins. This can vary between 2 months to 
more than one year depending on the type of toxin and the water quality (Newcombe 
2002; UKWIR, 1996) 

Dissolved microcystins have been shown to be removed by some reverse osmosis 
and nanofiltration membranes. As removal will depend of membrane pore size 
distribution and water quality, site specific tests are recommended (Smith et al 2002; 
Gijsbertsen-Abrahamse et al. 2006; Muntisov and Trimboli 1996; Neumann and 
Weckesser 1998). 

Chlorination and ozonation are effective for the removal of microcystins. A residual of 
at least 0.3 mg L-1 of ozone for 5 minutes will be sufficient for all of the most common 
microcystins. For chlorine a dose of 3 mg L-1 applied to obtain a residual of 0.5 mg 
L-1 for at least 30 minutes will be effective (Nicholson et al. 1994; Newcombe 2002; 

Rositano et al. 1998: Rositano et al. 2001; Ho et al. 2006a; Acero et al. 2005). "

Toledo has known about this for decades and has not only done nothing to fix the problem, but has allowed the deficient water treatment facility to fall into disrepair. It's a shame that evil libtard Dimocrats have such a following, but election after election, puppy eyed entitlement-minded  retards can be found to vote Dimocrat.   
Gee, that's certainly worked out well.

Scalia's DOMA Dissent

From another one of my blogs from June 27, 2013. I feel itis especially relevant today. From my concluding statement:

I've heard and read commentary on Scalia's dissent all day and it all misses the main point.
**********************************************************************Scalia's dissent IS the green light for the overthrow of our currently illegitimate government. The parts I've highlighted make clear that Scalia did not think the majority was incompetent. He makes the case that they were deliberately undermining the Constitution and the government AND are basically subversive agents of an enemy government, not merely five Justices voicing an opinion.**********************************************************************At a minimum, Scalia makes a crystal clear cut case for the forcible removal of those Justices and, by extension, the leaders of the Executive Branch and Holder and certain members of congress.

Below is Scalia's dissent. I have some parts highlighted and will have additional comment at the end.

[June 26, 2013]
JUSTICE SCALIA, with whom JUSTICE THOMAS joins,and with whom THE CHIEF JUSTICE joins as  to Part I,dissenting.

This case is about power in several respects. It is about the power of our people to govern themselves, and the power of this Court to pronounce the law. Today’s opinion aggrandizes the latter, with the predictable consequence of diminishing the former. We have no power to decide this case. And even if we did, we have no power under the Constitution to invalidate this democratically adopted legislationThe Court’s errors on both points spring forth from the samediseased root: an exalted conception of the role of this institution in America.

A Well Regulated Militia......

...being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

So states the text of what was originally the Fourth Amendment. The Bill of Rights originally had 12 Amendments, but the first two did not get ratified, thus we ended up with ten and the Fourth Amendment became the Second Amendment. There has been much argument as to the meaning of the Second Amendment. The Heller decision (DC v. Heller 2008) was the first Supreme Court decision to declare that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for self defense.

From Heller:
"(1) The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Pp. 2–53.
(a) The Amendment’s prefatory clause announces a purpose, but does not limit or expand the scope of the second part, the operative clause. The operative clause’s text and history demonstrate that it connotes an individual right to keep and bear arms. Pp. 2–22.
(b) The prefatory clause comports with the Court’s interpretation of the operative clause. The “militia” comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. The Antifederalists feared that the Federal Government would disarm the people in order to disable this citizens’ militia, enabling a politicized standing army or a select militia to rule. The response was to deny Congress power to abridge the ancient right of individuals to keep and bear arms, so that the ideal of a citizens’ militia would be preserved. Pp. 22–28.
(c) The Court’s interpretation is confirmed by analogous arms-bearing rights in state constitutions that preceded and immediately followed the Second Amendment. Pp. 28–30.
(d) The Second Amendment’s drafting history, while of dubious interpretive worth, reveals three state Second Amendment proposals that unequivocally referred to an individual right to bear arms. Pp. 30–32.
(e) Interpretation of the Second Amendment by scholars, courts and legislators, from immediately after its ratification through the late 19th century also supports the Court’s conclusion. Pp. 32–47.
(f) None of the Court’s precedents forecloses the Court’s interpretation. Neither United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U. S. 542 , nor Presser v. Illinois, 116 U. S. 252 , refutes the individual-rights interpretation. United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174 , does not limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes.
(2) Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons. Pp. 54–56."
Well, that's nice, but what did the founding fathers really have in mind with the Second Amendment? Let's look at it again:

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. We think we know what these words mean today, but what was the common usage in 1789? To determine this I used Samuel Johnson's 1792 edition of "A Dictionary of the English Language."

In those days a "militia" was defined as "the trainbands" or trained band of men. Specifically, a company of trained civilians, in England or America, from the 16th to the 18th century.

"Regulate" was defined as "to adjust by rule or method" and "to direct".

"Arms" were defined as "weapons of offense" and "war in general", so the Miller decision which restricted they type of weapons a person could own was incorrect as it was expected that citizens could own, provided they were not insane, any such weapon used in warfare.

Now let's look at the Second Amendment as the verbiage was understood by the men who wrote it:

"A well directed band of civilians, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and carry weapons of offense used for war in general, shall not be infringed.


In Heller, the Supreme Court did get right that the Second Amendment was there to prevent tyranny and that "the right of THE PEOPLE" was also an individual right.

The specifier "being necessary to the security of a free State" is critically important because it separates a militia from the government. Civilian militias can be used to assist the government in times of emergency, such as if the British are invading, but the specifier clause has a different duty for the militia.

There is a famous quote by Thomas Jefferson to wit:

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Here it is in context:

 "The British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, and what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves. Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusets? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it's motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion.[1] The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independant 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure. Our Convention has been too much impressed by the insurrection of Massachusets: and in the spur of the moment they are setting up a kite to keep the hen yard in order. I hope in god this article will be rectified before the new constitution is accepted." - Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787."

Thus, the importance of "being necessary to the security of a free State" is that the Second Amendment was specifically written to allow the militia to detach itself from the State and overthrow the government that has become tyrannical by the use of force. The militia then goes from a team player whose function is to assist the government to the ultimate check of destroying the government.

UPDATE: Some additional commentary. For additional clarification, it is the word "free" in the clarifier sentence that is important. As defined, "being necessary to the security of a non-tyrannical/non-oppressive State"(I.E. free State) as opposed to, "being necessary to the security of the State" makes the Second Amendment essentially a command for the militia to overthrow an oppressive government rather than an equivocal suggestion.

Also, based on the definition of "Arms" at the time, ANY weapon of war would be permissible to own.(Voiding the 1934 National Firearms Act) The definition also includes the phrase "and armor for defense" so MRAPS can be sold to civilians, who aren't insane.

TO ARMS!!!! TO ARMS!!!! It's fast approaching now or never.

Liberals: The Andromeda Strain

I suppose I could drag this post out with a lot of filler and the use of big words which would have some appeal in the pseudo-intellectual circle of readers, but, nah I'm just going to get to the meat.

I've previously posted on what should be done with libtards, but I'm going to revisit the topic. We must first understand that liberals are a virus upon the Earth. Liberals/libtards are evil.

From a political standpoint, we tend to see things as equal opposites, i.e. Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican etc. This view is basically that we are the same but have differing opinions which we can work out through dialogue in order to come to a reasonable compromise. Radio legend Rush Limbaugh routinely puts liberal callers to the front of the line in hopes of generating a good discussion with them.

There is nothing we need to discuss with evil. Instead of chatting with libtards, we need to round them up, push them into the showers and give them a good session of Zyklon B aromatherapy.

I'd love to be looking through the window, drinking a beer, watching the swine breathe their last and enjoy the fact that God is finally dealing with the deadly evil virus known as liberals.

The result of unchecked liberalism is worldwide death. Even Islam is a form of liberalism where the men are free to rape boys and rape and mutilate women and kill infidels (AKA non-perverts who have a full set of teeth and an IQ over 40). 

Being a Godly Christian involves discipline, love and true compassion rather than a feigned compassion which is used for deviant purposes. Christians are, however, under no compulsion to tolerate evil.

SHTF day IS coming. Will you be part of the problem or part of the solution? You had better start giving it some thought. 

From Romans 1:19-23 

19 "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[a] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,..."
