Quote of the Day

"How can something like this happen without prior warning?" asked Angeliki Psarianou, a 67-year-old retired public servant, who stood in the drizzle after arriving too late at one empty ATM in the Greek capital.

Le Sigh. How Did We Come to The Point Where Even the Serious 'Elite' Are Such Unserious Fools?

Report: US, Partners Won't Be Allowed to Inspect Iran's Nuclear Weapons Facilities Under Agreement

WTF. So in what sense is this actually a nuclear inspection agreement then?

The P5+1 countries led by the United States under Barack Obama have caved in to Iranian demands and will not insist on inspections of nuclear installations as part of a deal on Iran's nuclear weapons program, Channel 1 reported Sunday.

Alternative theory from the article: Iran already has nukes in the form of a couple crude Hiroshima type bombs so it's game-over.

Meanwhile the State Department kicked out unfriendly US reporters at a Vienna briefing on the imminent nuclear agreement.

George Will: A Greek Default Would Be a Valuable Lesson in Basic Economics

It cannot be said too often: There cannot be too many socialist smashups. The best of these punish reckless creditors whose lending enables socialists to live, for a while, off other people's money. The world, which owes much to ancient Athens's legacy, including the idea of democracy, is indebted to today's Athens for the reminder that reality does not respect a democracy's delusions.

My Worst Nightmare: Joe Biden Considering a Presidential Run

And is considered a viable contender.

Mr. Biden, 72 years old, lost two previous bids for the White House, in 1988 and 2008, and he would enter the 2016 contest as a clear underdog. Yet as a sitting vice president with loyal supporters in states that hold early contests, he has the potential to scramble the Democratic field.
A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll earlier this month showed that Americans' image of Mr. Biden is growing more positive. A total of 40% saw him in a favorable light, versus 31% who had a negative view of him. In November 2014, Mr. Biden's favorability rating stood at 35%, compared with 38% who viewed him unfavorably.

I've only threatened to leave to leave the United States once before and that was over the prospect of a Ted Kennedy presidency back when I was a precocious and passionate adolescent. Well the possibility of a President Biden is the second time I'm threatening to go ex-pat.

Soon Tapping a Muslim Woman on the Shoulder Will Be Considered Battery

Here is the background. The American Law Institute periodically issues "restatements" that attempt to codify the common law-but also shift the law in the direction the institute wants it to go. In 1964, for example, the institute's Restatement of Torts established the liability of sellers to consumers for defective products regardless of fault. At the time only 16 states had taken this position. Now it is the law everywhere.

The Arizona Supreme Court has ruled that American Law Institute restatements are law in all subsequent decisions when there is no state statute to the contrary. The U.S. Supreme Court on average cites the institute at least once a month.
On May 20 the American Law Institute approved, by a very close vote, significant changes to the section of its new Restatement of Torts dealing with assault and battery. The changes will have far-reaching, and extremely troubling, social and legal ramifications-including favoring some religious beliefs over others.

The institute's restatement defines the tort of battery as any contact with another person that "offends a reasonable sense of personal dignity" or-the new addition-contact that is highly offensive to another person's "unusually sensitive sense of personal dignity, and the actor knows that the contact will be highly offensive to the other."

To be a battery, the contact or touching must be offensive. That's to exclude the occasional bumps we experience walking through a crowd. And the law always measured what constituted an offense based on the views of a reasonable person. That way a judge can dismiss a frivolous claim. However, the American Law Institute now proposes that personal contact is a tort if the defendant knows that it will be offensive to someone who is "unusually sensitive."

...Consider John Doe, waiting at a bus stop, who taps a woman wearing a Muslim veil on the shoulder to get her attention and ask for directions. The institute's restatement suggests that Mr. Doe might be liable for committing battery. A jury might find that a reasonable person would know that males aren't supposed to make bodily contact with females not in their family. But if the woman touches Mr. Doe, she's not liable, because he follows a different religion or no religion at all.

What Ending Tax Exemptions Means For Churches

Well property taxes are local but I can see local exemptions being stripped in blue areas since it lets the legislators feel morally superior and brings in more $$$.

No, the real intent of removing tax-exempt status is to cripple the institutions that continue their dissent from the sexual revolution. When tax exemptions are removed, donors will give far less than they are giving now. Churches will become liable to property taxes. That means that many churches will have to forfeit their property to the government because they won't be able to afford the taxes they have to pay on it. Many of them wouldn't be able to pay them now. If donations went down, they would be that much further from being able to pay them.

Former CIA Deputy Director Concerned About a Terrorist Attack Over the 4th of July Weekend

[Morrell] said the FBI and Department of Homeland Security's recent bulletin resonated with him for two reasons. One note for concern, he said, is the large number of people who align themselves with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

"There's been about 50 people in the last 12 months who have been arrested in the United States for being radicalized by ISIS, wanting to go fight there or wanting to conduct an attack here," Morell said.

He's also worried about ISIS' "call to arms" for attacks against the terror group's enemies during Ramadan.

Not much we can do other than be prepared and watchful as always.

Also: This current period really does have a summer of 2001 feel to it, doesn't it?

Rose McGowan Fired by Agents For Bitching About Boobs, Cleavage at a Casting Call

You know when casting agents put out a call for bouncer and biker gang parts they mention that they're looking for big, burly kinds of actors - and for parts calling for a bosomy woman, it follows that they might mention that fact in the call notes. But apparently this is now sexist or something.

As Rose puts it ... "I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bulls**t in Hollywood."

If you missed it -- Rose went on a rant about the notes attached to a casting call for a Sandler flick. The notes called for women to wear something tight "that shows off cleavage (push-up bras encouraged)." She thought it was offensive to women, but a lot of people just saw it as part of the job for actors.

One day later, Rose's agents -- who most likely sent her on the casting call -- 86'd her.

Doesn't seem like she's too crushed. She tweeted, "#douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT."

And here McGowan is shown fighting for women and machine gun cyborgs' rights in the movie, Planet Terror.

85 I love Scottsdale, so I hope you have a wonderful time. Pretty hard-core going in July, though. Pop up to Flagstaff for the day if you get a chance. The Museum of Northern Arizona is small but nice. IIRC, the drive to Prescott was also interesting. Takes you across a big bridge, I think. The town is cute and "Western."

I want to celebrate it because our founders fought for something. They set up something good. Many others bled and risked their lives for this country. Many still do. America is not just a nation. It means something. I want to still believe - and I still do. But this has been a rather bleak week.

But the author also acknowledged it would only be fair to tax non-profits as well, including the liberal holy grail non-profits such as Planned Parenthood (!!).

163 Here's why Hillary will be the nominee for the Democrats, barring health complications, no matter how awful she is: The reason President Obama is able to get away with so much is that he's considered a black man. And in today's political climate, nobody wants to seem negative toward or oppose a black man. Justice Roberts isn't immune to this, none of the Supreme Court is. Congress won't act against him, because of his protected minority status. They need someone else like that to maintain the momentum. They need another protected status in that office as the figurehead for the movement and the policies. If its some old white guy, no matter who, even if it is someone as leftist as Sanders, will lose all that immunity. Now nobody can cry racist or sexist, now nobody can accuse oppression. They need Hillary no matter how awful, unlikable, and littered with baggage she is.

Then today the fucking communists up there decided to violate the constitution again and not allow the States to preserve and defend the franchise of citizens through ID requirements - therefore GUARANTEEING that we will not ever again have a free election by the citizens because any (DEMOCRAT) party of fraud (DEMOCRAT) can and will bus hundreds of non-citizens from precinct to precinct to steal any and every election with as many fraudulent votes that they want.

How are they defining love, exactly, because if it's about being gay, which is defined by into whom and where you place your penis, I think they may be thinking of the wrong word, there. The truth is that Love Wins, and we read about it in the Book of Revelation, AKA The Apocalypse of John. It ain't what they think it is. At. All.

211 "Mr. Biden, 72 years old, lost two previous bids for the White House, in 1988 and 2008"

It was fascinating to watch the way the press instantly shifted on Biden when Obama gave him the VP nod.

They had actually reported on things like Biden's gaffes and diplomatic mis-steps and plagiarism when Biden was a standalone candidate. But a microsecond after Biden was hoisted aboard the Obama 2008 bandwagon, all critical reportage stopped cold.

Black Democratium, the world's most impenetrable substance, is apparently like a force field. It can be projected to where it shields others in proximity.

245 I think Jesus said it best when he said "let he who is without sin throw the first stone." He did it for a woman who was having an affair with a married guy who was about to be killed by a mob. Jesus understood something to often we forget: all men are sinners. My sin is different than yours, but its still sin. What tempts me may not tempt you, and vice versa; we all struggle with it. Jesus tells us, all of us, to go and sin no more, but none of us can possibly point a finger of condemnation at anyone else as if we're better.

258 Like every other segment of the population, I've known some that were raging assholes and some who were people I've been happy to know as friends. Most of us fall in between those poles. AtC and Gabe aren't the only gays who are part of the Moron community, there are others whom I believe might be gay or bi, and I shall respect their wishes to remain quiet about it. As for those who want to crush religion, I wish those people would show some of that famous tolerance for others who are different from them that they demand. As you said BC, it's a one-way street with too many of them, always demanding and never offering. But let's not be the people whom the LGBT lobby says that we are, because we do have friends among gays, lesbians, and bi's

267 Taking offense over identity politics is playing into the wrong hands. This, X 1^6, AtC is valued (around these here parts, IMHO) for who she is as a person, not for whatever group she may or may not think or feel she has affinity with. Identity politics is itself the problem. The Founding Fathers called it "faction." The big problem with identity politics is that it requires a total denial of the very individuality which makes all of us who we are. When we stop seeing other people as individuals, and start seeing them as groups, really bad things start happening. And so we see, this past week, really bad things happening. We might survive them. We might not. The problem isn't the individuals. The problem is in erasing their individuality by agglomerating them into a group. The other problem is that humans are hard-wired with a tribal instinct which almost automatically causes us to separate into groups of Us and Them. The ascendency of the individual over the past few centuries, for a brief shining moment in human history, almost suppressed the tribal instinct in certain corners of this world. My big fear is that brief shining moment is coming to an end. Stay individual, my friends!

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at June 29, 2015 10:52 PM (39g3+) OTOH, He also tells us to love one another as he has loved us, meaning, he wants you and everyone else to get to heaven, and he is more than willing to tell you that your sin is going to keep you out unless you shape up and get your butt forgiven. We have a duty to NOT tolerate the subjects of our love falling into and staying in sin. If we let them go on sinning without doing anything, then we are apparently happy to let them walk into hell. Above all else, we my LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR, but that does not equate with letting them go to hell without saying or doing something to prevent it. Not like an asshole, but out of love.

278 Right now its not surprising that people are particularly bent out of shape by topics involving homosexuality, but that doesn't justify being cruel and hurtful yourself. Doing the evil that others do because they are so awful is wrong, as wrong as they are. That's why I've always disliked the "they do it, so we should to!!!1!!!!" shouts. Wrong is wrong, even if it seems effective.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at June 29, 2015 06:00 PM (39g3+)

279 I think maybe it would help for her to realize that she is not a "fag." Posted by: tcn in AK at June 29, 2015 10:48 PM (+YMhA) Very true. That's why lesbians get their own letter in LBGT... The fact is that no one ever really cared much about what homosexual women. They have been an oddity, at worst, and usually just a curiosity to most. Woman on woman sex scenes have long been accepted by many in mainstream movies - something that male homosexual sex scenes will never achieve and something that gay guys are eternally frustrated and angry about. Female homosexuality doesn't repulse most people but male homosexuality does in a very serious way. Of course, lives centered around anuses will do that. As to homosexual pretend marriage ... that is just an abomination and an offense. But, even then, most people don't care about two women who want to pretend they are married. However, the homosexual male drive to rip out all of sense, reason and tradition (and to destroy the language, itself) in order to have people forced to tell them they are normal (though they could never be normal in any society that had even half a chance of sustaining itself) is something that deserves every bit of scorn and derision heaped on it.

292 154 Hey everybody. I read the article in Time about striping churches of their tax-exempt status. True, it's a shitty idea. But the author also acknowledged it would only be fair to tax non-profits as well, including the liberal holy grail non-profits such as Planned Parenthood (!!). So he's basically making an anti-charity-of-any-type-except-big-gubmint argument. Again, still shitty but surprised he had the balls to acknowledge PP in the matter. Posted by: qdpsteve at June 29, 2015 10:31 PM (ntObR) As hard as losing tax exempt status would be on churches, it would be devastating for non-profits. I've been on the board of a couple of local ones, and they are always scrambling for cash, and most of the time go to the local and state governments looking for some kind of handout. Most will be out of business in a year.

Horrible. Sorta sounds like a lot of progressives out there. That weird sex shit, especially with kids, that is a hallmark of progressivism, and a technique they use. So screwed up.

My take is that this is something for a person to take up with God on their own, but they should be made to know what he says in the Bible, nonetheless. However, as I have said before, it is NEVER up to any human being to judge. We have one judge, and that is all, and He is merciful, or we all would burn.

Well it has to do with understanding what love is to begin with. If you think all love consists of is that squishy feeling and being nice, then yes, you'll think love equals letting people do anything they want when they want. But if you understand that love is outward focused, that it is wanting the best for them, even if they dislike it or it upsets them, that changes things. Its why we teach kids and correct them rather than let them do whatever they want, out of love. Its why you stop people from doing wrong and awful things that hurt themselves, when you love them.

A super-conservative FB friend (who I finally had to block) was quite open about saying you could be the world's greatest, most loving, Christian, truly tolerant person in the history of the universe... but that if you're gay, God would still send you to hell. I'd like to think that's not necessarily the case.

Oh, they're more than willing to remind *you* of your sins. It's just that what they consider a sin are based situational power games.

And I think you're wrong theologically; the job of a Christian is not to be the castigating scold.

316 OTOH, He also tells us to love one another as he has loved us, meaning, he wants you and everyone else to get to heaven, and he is more than willing to tell you that your sin is going to keep you out unless you shape up and get your butt forgiven. We have a duty to NOT tolerate the subjects of our love falling into and staying in sin. If we let them go on sinning without doing anything, then we are apparently happy to let them walk into hell.

THIS... people always seem to remember Jesus saying "Let he who is without sin throw the first stone" when it is uncomfortable to confront sinful behavior especially in people we like or care about. They forget the part of that story where Jesus says to the woman, "Go and sin no more." They also forget about all the other parts of the New Testament that tell believers how to confront sin... especially in other believers... lest they fall off the straight and narrow path to Heaven.

340 303 So, a gay person is a sinner on the path to Hell? Posted by: eman at June 29, 2015 11:01 PM (MQEz6) Not something I said there, is it? But, if you take St. Paul's letters as authoritative, then probably. My take is that this is something for a person to take up with God on their own, but they should be made to know what he says in the Bible, nonetheless. However, as I have said before, it is NEVER up to any human being to judge. We have one judge, and that is all, and He is merciful, or we all would burn. Posted by: tcn in AK at June 29, 2015 11:04 PM (+YMhA) First, let me say I am not arguing with you; I'm probing. If Christians have a duty to intervene on someone's behalf (keep them out of Hell), then how do they recognize the threat is real and it is time to do something? In other words, if you intervene, then you must believe a mortal sin is being comitted.

You aren't going to cure folks from smoking by telling them it will give them cancer. They know that, and putting labels on packs of smokes isn't going to put a dent in the jones they get from missing a coffin nail. You may cure them by letting them know that you love them very much and would rather have them around, and then offering to do something concrete to help them kick the habit. Same with other sins. Sometimes, just letting people know they matter and should worry about eternity once in a while gets them back on the straight and narrow. Nagging, never. It just becomes background noise.

375 Here's a thought apropos of nothing in particular. I have seen a lot of comments about Christianity having to go underground as it did during the Soviet Union's early and peak years, but that it was able to survive. The thought is this: What if there is no USA, no Shining City On The Hill, no last great hope of civilization? Who will American Christians look to from their cellar churches and retreats in the woods? Can we really be so sanguine about the fate of Christianity or even civilization itself if the ideal that is 'America' is truly fundamentally changed? There is no superpower to counterbalance evil on a national/international level. Perhaps the only hope for the future lies in the hearts and minds of good men and women. Food for thought.

389 It took 25 days to catch the two escaped cons because the NYPD kept finding illegal immigrants instead. More to the point, they had an escape plan and stuck to it, and the police had to search a state the size of, say, New York! Maybe they were hoping one of the convicts would be stupid enough to post his escape on Twitter?

Down here I am not too worried about cons that go over the fence at the Lebanon state pen. They will get a mile down the road and then wander into the Miami Valley Casino and be picked up while they are playing the slots while waiting for the next horse race.

394 There is a not insignificant portion of Christianity that is deluded thinking that sexual sins are the worst possible sort.

There is no superpower to counterbalance evil on a national/international level. Perhaps the only hope for the future lies in the hearts and minds of good men and women.

I find reading the City of God helps put times like these into perspective. The fall of Rome felt like the end of the world - and it was, really. Civilization, learning, and technology went backward. People forgot what their parents knew. Rome had created peace, stability, and order, it had given medicine, a mail service, roads, and commerce to almost two million square miles of the planet's surface for nearly 1000 years. But Augustine pointed out that God is in charge, not Rome, and that His kingdom is forever.

Posted by: Chavez the Hugo at June 29, 2015 11:04 PM (ucDmr) Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep used to get the sensors that GM rejected. I had 2 Grand Cherokees, and both of them had the same problem with the air conditioning, the condenser coil developed a leak. But they told me that they didn't have a problem with their AC equipment. Lucky for me, I had complained to the service department about the AC before the car went out of warranty. On the last one, the service rep actually told me that on a 70 degree day that the AC should be blowing out 65 degree air. When I asked him if the AC should be blowing out 94 degrees on a 100 degree day, he pulled out his service guide from Jeep which told him that the AC should have been blowing out 45 degrees. Then, going down the interstate at 65mph, the car suddenly dropped to 2nd gear and the check engine light came on. Take it to the dealer, bad sensor. After Obama gave Chrysler to Fiat, I said "fuck it" to Jeep.

494 332 Forrest wasn't just another Confederate, he was actually a *founder* of the Klan, so I'm not sure getting rid of his memorial would be that bad. ;-) Posted by: qdpsteve at June 29, 2015 11:04 PM (ntObR) And he then LEFT the Klan that he created, when it went Racist... He then spent years speaking out against it... Because it went from Promoting and Defending the Southern Man, to tearing down the Black... Posted by: BB Wolf at June 29, 2015 11:10 PM (qh617) I haven't researched it closely, but while Forrest was one of the founders of the Klan, it went off in a different direction than he intended, so he left. He apparently did not hate black people. I think Forrest deserves a lot of credit for his speech to his troops when news came of Lee's surrender. He basically said, "OK, the war's over. We lost. Go home." His troops loved him, and if he had ordered them to go into the mountains and wage a guerilla campaign against the Union occupying forces, they would have. So he deserves credit for putting the war behind him and starting the healing process.

It's not un-Christian, it's nearly a certainty at this point.

The Iranian negotiating technique works a lot better if you have a few nuclear weapons.  It also helps if the guy on the other side of the table is desperate for any deal and willing to lie to his own people.  Since neither of those situations is likely to be true, things might not go all your way in dealing with the IRS.

544 Posted by: OTB at June 29, 2015 11:37 PM (ShdUd) Didn't Christ say that nobody knows the day or hour of His return? I recall reading that the early Christians all believed Christ was going to return during their livetimes. Some Christian writer, I can't remember who it was, said that for all we know we are still in the early days of Christianity. God's not on our timeline.

559 I'm not being snarky here at all, so please take this at face value, but I do not understand the Rapture at all. When did Christians discover this Rapture, and what does it entail? I cannot find it it Scripture and I know for a fact that Catholics don't do that, so I'm at a loss here. All I know are the snarky jokes about it. ----------------------------------------------------------- A Very Good Question. Thank you for asking it. Much information is available on the subject. It was first taught by the Apostle Paul. It has mentioned in the OT as well. People get stuck on the word "Rapture". I can give a good starting point by Patrick Heron. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1aZ9NvKDBM Look up Charles Lawson in your search engine. Two good starting points. Both will give the scripture references to go along with the teaching. You will be able to check these out in you own King James Bible. If you don't have one it is freely available online. Please check it out for yourself. Nothing is more important that having Jesus Christ as your savior. May God Bless You!

571 534 tcn in AK. RE: rapture. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 NIV According to the Lords word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. I'm not sure of the timing and don't claim to understand all the end times stuff. Posted by: chique d'afrique (the artist formerly known as african chick) at June 29, 2015 11:53 PM (shFKH) Okay, but I don't get it. This is description of the last days, when Christ returns. I don't understand how this is distinct from the Last Judgement. It is more fully described in Revelation, so perhaps it is a bit cryptic, but so are the sayings of Jesus about his return. How does this Rapture work, exactly?

Posted by: tcn in AK at June 29, 2015 07:04 PM (+YMhA)

572 Keep in mind that were are living in the last days. Jesus Christ answered his disciples about his return with 2 questions. The first part concerned the Rapture of the church and the second was to be his Second Coming in Power and Great Glory. ...as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah... That is very easy to relate to in the past few days. He spoke of this two thousand years ago. No need to fret. God will be calling us up hither very soon. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

That's one of the warnings I'm getting now. Brake fluid low. A year old pickup with 18k on it. Posted by: Ricardo Kill at June 29, 2015 11:01 PM (fe8aC) Sounds like, in CBD's case, the service writer (service SALESMAN, in fact) simply read off the list of possible causes of a low brake fluid warning light, or trouble code, and declared all of them need to be done. Most common cause? Front brake pads have worn enough that calipers have drawn down fluid in the reservoir to the point that the low fluid sensor triggers. Quick and easy fix? Doh, add some fluid to the reservoir, but expect that soon you will have to replace front brake pads.

I cannot find it it Scripture and I know for a fact that Catholics don't do that, so I'm at a loss here. All I know are the snarky jokes about it. The Bible literally has the word "raptiera" in it, its just the term for "caught up," and some have built a whole complex system of eschatology based on parts of the Bible which involves several comings of Christ, judgments, etc. The Left Behind series is one version of this. Nobody knows exactly what is going to happen, because God left it very unclear and obscure on purpose. He told us enough to know just a few things: He wins, Jesus is coming, the world will end, be ready.

614 Christmas was the first holiday I grew to hate. It was all about the loot. Getting stuff. To get stuff you had to give stuff. and it was all about the money. If you didn't have much money you couldn't give away the good stuff and get good stuff in return. Thanksgiving ended with the death of my parents generation. Fourth of July stopped being something to celebrate after Vietnam, and especially after Bill Clinton. Easter stopped being a holiday fifty years ago.

627 Tcn, the passage I copied from 1 Thess describes the Rapture. There are different schools of thought as to the interpretation of when apocalyptic stuff will happen as well as the interpretation of what the events foretold actually mean. I'm a Pentecostal and Pentecostals generally believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, but I'm not convinced that is supported in Scripture. In fact I listened to an RC Sproul podcast describing the view that the events in Revelation have already taken place and that Nero was the Antichrist. It was very compelling. But I still don't know. All I know is that in the end Jesus and His saints will be victorious. I have long since stopped being too worried about the timing and the exact events.

Jesus has taken my sins and given me his righteousness. The Son of the Living God died for me and was raised from the dead. I died and was raised with him. He gave his only son for me. Not like he would hold anything else back. Good luck with IslamObama on your part. You still have time to repent and be saved. Please don't blow off the opportunity. This may be the last one you have. Accept Jesus now while you are able. A simple honest prayer will get you started on more than you can imagine. This is too important to put off, do it now!

Decent scientists subject their hypotheses to skepticism, the best scientists subject hypotheses to erudite skepticism. Likewise politics requires a modicum of contrarian reflection.

Posted by: keena at June 30, 2015 12:15 AM (RiTnx) Conservative to leftist is one-way traffic the same way that order to chaos is one-way traffic. It takes a lot of courage, strong conviction and immense fortitude for someone to remain a conservative in American government. The easy path is to be a leftist and just make stuff up - to sway with the popular whim, as one sees it. A conservative in an American government position must argue and fight for LIMITS to his position. A leftist fights for more power to his position, any sort of power. The natural human inclination is to look for power, not to be humble and fight for restraint - restraint of ones own power! Just as entropy dictates that all ordered systems experience huge pressures pushing them to chaos (and it require immense amounts of energy and effort to stave off this descent into chaos) the same forces in politics and governmental structures pushes them left - to political and governmental chaos. That's why a Constitutional Republic (as ours was) is so difficult to keep for any period of time. A little over 200 years was, frankly, an impressive run.

671 Tcn, I also think that people make the assumption that when that one part of Scripture says that the restrainer will restrain no more - very loose paraphrase, and sorry, I can't find the passage right now - that means that the Holy Spirit will be removed from Earth because He exited with the believers He was indwelling. Hence a rapture happening before the end of time. I can see how that interpretation could be considered a stretch.

That's a win for federalism, for what its worth. Which isn't much, given the precedent of the previous two decisions.

This is incorrect.

First off we make judgement calls every day. Do you want your Children playing near a house where a known pedophile lives? Of course you don't.
You have just made a judgement.

Unfortunately changing words to mean something that they do not mean is not just a game for proggies.

"Thou shall not kill". I am sure that everyone has heard that.

The correct translation is,
"Thou shall do no murder"

"Thou shall not judge"

"Thou shall not condemn" is the correct verse. To follow "That is God's job and God's alone"

Meaning of course that when you tell someone they are going to hell you are condemning them.

I'll finish up my little rant with this one.

"Condemn not lest thee be condemned"

Posted by: ManWithNoParty, unperson from Free Market Jesus Paradise at June 30, 2015 12:04 AM (mG3Qj) Here in Virginia during the 70's, 80's and 90's, the Democrats running for office all dutifully made a pilgramage to visit all the old Democrats who were in charge of the "massive resistance" of the 50's and 60's so that these old racist bastards would endorse them for the office they were running in. Zero Republicans did. Yet, the GOP is racist because those old dead bastards and their old dead racist bastard followers have now turned into the GOP base or something.

695 661 So true Primordial pair. It took the Roman Empire longer to go there but it is the pattern. All things die, eventually. I'm actually more bothered by the ACA ruling because gay marriage was totally predictable along party lines. Although I do not oppose (but don't endorse gay marriage). I oppose where it's heading Posted by: keena at June 30, 2015 12:25 AM (RiTnx) I'm equally bothered by all of them. The BarkyCare ruling was expected, seeing how they already twisted word and earth to allow it, the first time. Gay pretend-marriage - and that's all it can ever be is pretend marriage - is just an intellectual offense, a linguistic homicide, and a fatal societal disease. The SCOTASS had no business putting their two cents in on this, but I am not surprised by this ruling as they went out of bounds long ago when they struck down the DOMA, which was, actually, the Constitutional role of the feral government - to establish regular rules about state definitions that clash with each other and with the feral government. When the SCOTUS blew that out of the water (and the Vichy GOP let Barky just say that the Executive decided not to even try to defend it, which the Constitution has something to say about ...), that was pretty much it for that issue.

699 You can do all things through Christ Jesus. Praying for understanding of his written word is available for the asking in prayer. Posted by: OTB at June 30, 2015 12:30 AM (ShdUd) Darlin', I've seen it and read it, and it still makes no sense. I wonder when this "understanding" of Scripture came about, because I think it is made up of whole cloth but I've been too polite so far to say so. For 1800 years, that passage of Thessalonians was read as describing the Second Coming of Christ, which meant the end of time. Now, suddenly (in the scheme of 2,000 years or so) we have something else called the Rapture. So, I'm asking. Not for someone to proof text the Bible and "prove" it, but from a serious, honest perspective that explains why we invented this addition to what was plainly not there before. All those youtube videos do is take Rapture to be the truth and then proof text to "prove" the point, and they also put up a lot of straw men from others who have "proven" other odd theories about those passages, few of which make sense either. So, I'm asking, do you just take the Rapture on faith from your local preacher, or is there some special revelation that has changed the theology of eschatology and shown us Rapture. I'm asking honestly, not snarky, but I really want to hear the truth.

Clinton carried a bunch of southern states in 92 and 96, and it wasn't until 2000 that Bush 2 won the southern states. As a matter of fact, most southern states' legislatures didn't flip to GOP until the 90's, and a couple of them flipped over for the first time just a couple of years ago.

I'm asking honestly, not snarky, but I really want to hear the truth. ------------------------------------------------------------ Good questions. Answers. Jesus said: I am the Way, The Truth, and the Life... The Bible. KJV is where to go. Read it. Pray to God about what you read. Also Pick it up, open it read were you open to. Amazing things happen. It is Spirit. If you have conviction on your soul and are a believer pray and ask. If you have yet to believe ask Jesus Christ to to be your savior. Then get out your Bible. We want to learn things because God is in us and has sealed us with his spirit. His Holy Spirit opens up the revelation from God. Otherwise it is just a printed book. Search out teachers who quote the KJV Bible. If what they teach isn't back by the Bible don't go there. If your not sure pray for understanding. E-sword is a free bible and bible learning software. Check all things you are taught by looking up the reference for yourself. There is nothing greater you can do than look up the reference see if it is true and also true in context. Christ's word, is the only authority. Simple pass fail test. Our flesh wants to argue against Christ's word. That is where faith comes in. Believe God not your flesh/emotions. They will lead you astray. Don't believe a human being that isn't backed up by the Bible. No matter who it is or how good and reasonable it sounds.

749 Speaking of Gerrymander, a SCOTUS decision ruled that Arizona could apportion its congressional districts however it chooses, even if they are stupid. That's a win for federalism, for what its worth.

Which isn't much, given the precedent of the previous two decisions. Its just a matter of waiting for the next court to decide whatever the hell it wants and wallpaper it with the constitution.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at June 30, 2015 12:34 AM (39g3+)


You need to read that decision again because it most definitely was not a win for federalism. The five lead by Ginsburg ruled that when the Constitution says that legislatures have control over setting times and places  and the manner that Senators and Representatives are elected(including redistricting every ten years), it actually meant that an unelected "non-partisan" redistricting committee could do the redistricting over the vehement objections of, ya know, the legislature.


Not a win for federalism at all but instead another instance where SCOTUS pulled out their magical mystery dictionary to redefine the actual words in the Constitution.

I have asked Lutheran pastors about these things, and I have spoken with Evangelicals, and they fob them off with vague pronouncements. I think they assume I don't pray enough or something. Which is odd, because these days that's about all I do with spare time. Seems we need it more and more. And I don't say these folks are wrong, at all. I just don't understand where it came from and if it is supportable. Because I have never gotten a straight answer. I asked my husbands Lutheran pastor why they leave Jesus off the cross in the church, and his answer was that they worship the risen Christ.

758 Was just wondering the other day who it was that threw a millstone off of a tower and killed Abimelech. Looked it up. She is unnamed. Sad, really, to go down in history known only as "The Millstone Pelter". Probably one of those glass ceiling things. Abimelech (as you all recall), was so mortified that he was going suffer the post mortem indignity of "Killed by woman", that he had his own armor bearer finish him off.

The Latin Vulgate Bible... The King James Bible was part of an ongoing effort to put the Word of God into the vernacular of the countries where it was read so that it would be more accessible to the non-priest class that did not know Latin.

And where did you learn that Catholics don't believe that Christ is the Son of the Living God, died for our sins, and rose again on the third day? That comes straight from one of the three creeds, which came from three different Councils of the Church, long before there were such things as Evangelicals. So I'm mystified by that, right there. Of course I believe that Jesus Christ is my savior. I also believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of the Living God. I could quote you all three creeds and you would not take exception to them, but I still don't know how the Rapture came to be.

Seems we need it more and more. ------------------------------------------------------------- You have given the answer yourself. At last your answer is at handt.

It happened once and for all on Calvary. The Mass re-presents it--it is always present, but we need lots of reminders, and so Jesus told us to keep doing it.

784 Tomorrow, 6PM Washington,  is D-day and H-hour for Greece to officially default on its IMF payment. Supermarkets are cleared out. The populace seems to be in the mood to swap currency for stuff, needed stuff, which they rightly fear may be in short supply once Greece gets the boot from the EU and the money is cut off.

  What will be interesting is (if words mean things) is this will be a default event which will trigger all sorts of clauses in CDS and various other derivative instruments. That, in turn, will require others to cough up money, which they don't have, which will trigger even more defaults.

  One of the main reasons the Fed bailed AIG out with the printing press was all those CDS AIG had written on all the mortgage-backed shit that was really worthless.

     Expect them to try to do all manner of conniving to prevent the word "default" in all these contracts to mean what it clearly means.

   Remember that massive defaults are generally deflationary, as the evaporation of things people were considering money-good, and using as money, really (well actually backing loans of real money) causes the effective money supply to shrink.

  However, if Greece has to abandon the euro (basically no Greek euros will be valid), and has to go back to the drachma, things could hyperinflationary. Either way, deflation or hyperinflation, the populace will have no money or lots of worthless money, unable to buy the shit they need.  Hence the runs on the grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, etc, etc.

Posted by: tcn in AK at June 30, 2015 01:02 AM (+YMhA) I respect the Pope and think there have been some very good ones. I'm not Catholic, so I have no special allegiance to him. I certainly don't think that the Pope is the Whore of Babylon and I love my Catholic brothers and sisters. As far as Bibles go, find one that you like. Many Evangelicals like the NIV, but I also like the English Standard Version and the Holman Christian Study Bible. The WEB and the NET versions are good, too. I grew up with the King James Version and have no beef with the many who like it. However, a lot of the words are archaic and we now have access to older Greek and Hebrew texts. I don't recommend it to someone who isn't familiar with the Bible.

795 60 I was raised in a tradition that revered our Country and its' principles. Part of that education was the knowledge that we have not been infallible. But starting with some remarkably insightful founders a country was created that has done more good and created more wealth for more people than any other country or empire in history. Whether the good and the wealth were the goal or a result of a system of laws and rights or a product the outcome is the same.

 I have faith we will survive, prevail and prosper. I will raise the flag on the Fourth, hoist a glass and loudly, proudly and certainly off key sing the Star Spangled Banner. I hope each of you will join me wherever you are in this fantastic Country of ours.

815 788 So, how do you stand on the authority of the Pope, then? Is he one of those human beings who is backed up by the Bible? Or he a member of the whore of babylon? Just wondering. Posted by: tcn in AK at June 30, 2015 01:02 AM (+YMhA) I respect the Pope and think there have been some very good ones. I'm not Catholic, so I have no special allegiance to him. I certainly don't think that the Pope is the Whore of Babylon and I love my Catholic brothers and sisters. As far as Bibles go, find one that you like. Many Evangelicals like the NIV, but I also like the English Standard Version and the Holman Christian Study Bible. The WEB and the NET versions are good, too. I grew up with the King James Version and have no beef with the many who like it. However, a lot of the words are archaic and we now have access to older Greek and Hebrew texts. I don't recommend it to someone who isn't familiar with the Bible. Posted by: Michael the Hobbit at June 30, 2015 01:32 AM (0RdKg) My family got a copy of the New English Bible when I was about 10 years old. I was intrigued by its inclusion of the Apocrypha. Over the years, I have favored it for a study Bible -- but kept the KJV near at hand. The reason for this was that the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts were frequently poetic and allegoric, which was beautifully captured in the KJV.....while the NEB looked to accurately relate the plain meaning of the original texts. And so it came to pass, that whenever both Bibles agreed nearly word-for-word, one might read faster -- confident that plain reading would suffice; but where the Bibles diverged, greater contemplation was called for.

819 661 So true Primordial pair. It took the Roman Empire longer to go there but it is the pattern. I'm actually more bothered by the ACA ruling because gay marriage was totally predictable along party lines. Although I do not oppose (but don't endorse gay marriage). I oppose where it's heading
-----------
We are more of the Republican empire headed towards the despotic one of the Caesars, but there is still time to turn back, before we have to stab someone to death (or shoot him with concealed handguns) in the Capitol rotunda. Rome a few times, and managed to survive longer periods of internal strife than the USA has had so far. May we endure for such a time, Almighty God! But only half the Roman empire went in AD 475, and that was the weaker half. The stronger half survived internal religious troubles, Iranians, Muslims, half-civilized adventurers from the fallen West, and its own inertia for nearly a thousand years more. So if we are using the Roman model, everything west of the Rockies will be toast, but everything else will pull itself together under a new Constantine or Theodosius and stubbornly slog forward. And even in the downfallen West there was Arthur, Charles Martel and the Saints to hold things together until Charlemagne could rise. We can and will endure; it is the weak and useless do-nothing world of the Left that will pass away, all their houses built on sand.

Were I man, perhaps I might have become a Jesuit. Not all smart folks are men. I studied to become a Dominican nun, but left that when I met my future Lutheran husband. Of course I believe the Catholic Church tells me the truth, else I would have left it. I believe others of other faiths think the same way, else they would leave. I fail to see how asking a direct question and having my own prayer life questioned because of it makes me the next inquisitor, but okay, go ahead and say that I am if it makes me the bad guy.

829 I've studied the end times for decades and have my changed views over time. I used to hold to the Pre-Tribulation view that Christians would be raptured to Heaven begire the reign off the Antichrist. I no longer hold to that and now believe that Christians will go through the Tribulation and that the Rapture occurs before God pours out his weather upon the earth. The pre-wrath Rapture view is, I think, the more sound one and is supported by the Biblically text. Here's a very good book on the pre-wrath viewpoint and why Christians need to prepare for persecution during the Tribulation. http://amzn.to/1U2NBr9

841 "I saw nothing beyond honest inquiry......certainly nothing to justify a personal attack." Challenging someone's rhetoric is now a 'personal attack' because I've challenged her religious belief, which is what she was doing to all who responded to her. It was 'honest inquiry' because she said so, over and over and over and over again. I try to avoid getting sucked into these useless arguments, but there are times I won't just ignore the subtle taunts. I try to avoid threads about gay issues, black issues, and religion precisely because of what just happened here. The 'honest inquiry' gets tiresome, speaking up to challenge the logic behind someone unwilling to accept a simple answer is provocative. It's all a waste of time anyway. No one was enlightened, no minds were changed, feelings were hurt and now enemies have been made. All because I responded to an 'honest inquiry' that could never be satisfied.

But when you go, "your arguing like you're GHEY!!!!", that is just breaking out into a "I know you are but what am I?" slapfight, and trying to make something personal instead of about the issue. I happen to think that she has a worthwhile inquiry and that you have some good things to add to the discussion. But when things were going sideways in the middle of the night here, I think you pulled the wrong response card. Let's all zonk and look at it afresh and see if we can't re-engage at a better level.

qdpsteve may be gone, ditto for BB Wolf, but I hope steve saw BB's comment about Forrest.

Lazy me, I don't recall the specifics, but I heard the story on the radio a while back. Later in life, the founder of the Klan not only became an opponent of its race-focus, but was such a friend to black Americans that as an elderly man he was awarded some sort of recognition. Forget the year, the award, the black organization that bestowed it.

Anyway, I was floored to hear that history. And I think it was not so much a case of redemption, and finding the light, but actually pretty good indication that there was a lot more (and different) going on for many southerners WRT to the war and reconstruction than just slavery. I might have key elements wrong here, if so I apologize and seek correction. But it's a pretty eye-opening chapter for most, who understandably would view Forrest in very negative terms.

Heard a few minutes of Hewitt interviewing Cruz.  Had to stop and get out of the car before the meat, but Cruz was warming up by praising the two sensible parts of the first O-care ruling (commerce clause and blackmailing states with on Medicaid expansion).  So I don't know what Cruz said about the it's-a-tax catastrophe, or this past week's nuclear suicide-bombing of law and jurisprudence (words mean nothing).

 

The enormous inertia present in most legal commentators' need to preserve outward regard for the judicial system, even when it simply becomes a farce, as with the O-care decision this week (and arguably the marriage redefinition as well), seems to keep discussion fairly Soviet (can't discuss wheat crop failure directly, so talk about bad weather, problems with rail transport, and insect damage to the crop). 

 

Problem is not that it leaves intelligent observers (who realize about 95% of the "complexity" and recondite entrail-reading of con law is pure b.s., and that essential issues are quite simple) frustrated.  It's that most people, who have limited interest and no background whatsoever in such things, get no validation for their commonsensical "WTF?" when they look at weeks like this.  The visible "experts" just cannot bring themselves to admit how bad things are - they must maintain the facade of gravitas and respect for institutional wisdom and procedure that are unearned.

913 I awoke to thoughts of where exactly did the country go off the rails. I believe it was with the passage of the 17th Amendment by the Progressive left. 36 States refused to setup federal exchanges which means a lot of Senators voted for the ACA when their State Legislatures wanted none of it. Had the original intent of the Senate had been in place, the States would have had representation in Congress and the ACA wouldn't even exist. The 17th Amendment must be repealed to accurately reflect the representation of the States.

917 Who would ever have believed that tyranny would come through the Courts? And yet, now it's here. The will of the voters, expressed by legislation across the country, is thwarted by four die-hard leftists and one squish who's been bent. If the Court has become nothing more than a super-legislature, able to make such binding decisions with such long ramifications, then if we are to be a free Republic, the Court must be subjected to the will of the voters. When I lived in Florida, we had retention votes every election for judges, where you could vote to retain or dismiss them. I suggest that, if we are to ever have our Article V convention or a sane Congress again (doubtful at best), then we should demand that this convention puts such a mechanic on the Supreme Court. The hard-line positions of the four Leftist judges leaves no doubt that the Court has been politicized, and that its neutrality has passed into history if it ever truly existed. If we are not to go with the model of retention votes, then it should be to the voters of this country to decide who gets placed on the court. Anything less than either of these represents the ability of a small unelected elite to thwart the will of the voters, which is a form of governance unworthy of a free Republic.

921 Morning everyone. I see Hot Air is clutching pearls and swooning over Cruz's suggestion to ignore the Supreme Court. Cruz is obviously just saying shit - Mr. TPP knows nobody will follow his advice, but wants to posture to the right to get angry SoCons to vote for him so he can complete the Cursus Honorum. Though insincere, it is actually good advice, and one wonders why the states don't simply ignore the ruling and force the feds to try to enforce it. In general it summarizes the problem with conservatives - we respect institutions we know to be corrupt, and we follow their rulings, solemnly biting our lips and muttering, 'it's the law.' Liberals don't approach the world this way. They started gay marrying people immediately and dared people to stop them. Their worldview is more realistic. The Democrats can't buy compliance and votes at the same time. Their major weapon is withholding funding when they control the purse, and it is time for us to refuse that funding when they do. It is time to call the Federal government's bluff on enforcing their overreach. Are they going to send tanks into the red states to tear down churches? No. Very soon, the federal government will begin shuttering churches because of their beliefs, by decree alone. This is worse than anything England ever attempted before the Revolutionary War. The Republican party will do nothing to stop it. Hot air will wring their hands over 'heated' rhetoric by flim-flam men like Ted Cruz. Will conservatives mutter, "it's the law," or will they resist these unjust laws, and refuse to comply? We know what Republicans will do.

Yes, and what the spineless surrender monkeys Tepid Air will say about it is pretty predictable, too.

The situation in this country has become pretty desperate, IMO, and nobody seems to have the Dangling Courage Units to stand up and say "this is wrong." The True Conservative Heroes seem to be lining up in lockstep to tell us all to be good little boys and girls and let them "take care of the situation" by doing...nothing.

It's disheartening to people like me who grew up being taught that "the Constitution would protect us." True, it has withstood attacks since, well, the late 1700s and prevailed every time, but I tend to think the Choom Gang are the straws that will finally break its back, aided by a vast public that doesn't give an actual shit.

The last week has pretty well shown that it's Game Over for everything we believed, and time to surrender to the ravening beasts who are bent on devouring us.

The first attack came when the Federalists lost the election to Thomas Jefferson and they tried to pack the courts and came up with the scam that inevitably made the Supreme the "sole" interpreter of what the Consitution meant.  And nowhere in the Constitution does it say that or even imply it.


That made the Fox in charge of guarding the hen house and what turned the court into a political organ.  And yet people call Adams a saint.

They show time and time again that they'd rather ride their ideology straight into the ground than ever question it.  No matter how wrong their predictions or how horribly the debt/deficit/inflation spirals, they stick to their guns.

Good Morning Morons.  Today is Tuesday, June 30, 2015.  On this day in 1882 Charles J. Guiteau was hanged in Washington, D.C. for the assassination of U.S. President James Garfield.  Interesting man Mr Guiteau.  His life was a litany of miserable failure and he was probably a mental case.  He pleaded insanity  as a defense but only during the shooting.  In those days juries and courts were better.  The twinky defense did not work then.

954 Obama wants to add another 5 million workers to the non-exempt category by changing the OT rules.  I thought he had done this already?  He wants to do it by simply changing the salary level at which it applies.   He can do this with a simple regulation change by the DOL. The fair wage and labor act should be repealed.  Although many businesses abuse the crap out of the "exempt" category Obama should not be able to change it just based on his say-so alone.  Especially while we are still mired in a depression due to his other regulatory misadventures.

998 I believe others have mentioned this but the only way forward if the SCOTUS is going to act as a super legislative body, then it should be representative of the 50 states. To that end, the SCOTUS should be expanded to 50 and and each states legislature will propose a jurist. Obviously the president can select who he wants but the congress can simply refuse to approve those outside of those picked by the states. Congress sets the number of SCOTUS members so this isn't an issue. This maneuver would have to be undertaken when the GOP controlled congress and the presidency but I think this has a more realistic shot then a convention of the states. We need 38 states to ratify anything out of a convention and we simply do not and will not have the required number to pass any meaningful amendments, I'm not saying don't try but an Article V is simply not the magic bullet.

They present the CFB not only as an object of racism but trot out civil war 'history'. Any attempt of an Article V can be tried in the media as an attempt to raise the old south.

Removing the CBF does nothing for the victims of the Charleston shooting. Nothing.

But it makes the Special Snowflakes who currently rule the nation -- and their white guilt-ridden enablers -- feel like they have Accomplished Something Important.

Let me know when the ISIS flag is banned. Also the Black Panther flag. Also the Mexican flag. And Che Guevara imagery.

The MS and GA flags both had the CBF built into them.  SC has had the palmetto tree and moon every since I have known the flag. But SC did used to fly the Conferate Naval Jack (large rectangular CBF) over the State House dome.  In a compromise move 15 years ago they changed it to the CBF (square and smaller) and moved it to the monument on the ground.
