And I know exactly who is to blame. It’s the American people. I’ve written ad nauseam about how the American people have allowed liberals to lead them in turning their backs to God instead of turning to God. There are reasons for this. To start off liberals offer lots of freebies. You want health care? Liberals want to make it free. You want to go to college? Liberal freebie. Need a cell phone? Freebie. Want to raise a bunch of kids with neither a husband nor a job? Freebie!
Liberals are also very understanding. Want to raise a bunch of kids with neither a husband nor a job? Go ahead, that’s just fine. Is an unwanted, unplanned pregnancy interfering with … well … anything in your life. It’s just a “mass” of non-human cells. We’ll take care of it. And don’t worry, we’ll whisk it away so you’ll never have to see it. We wouldn’t want you to have any feelings of guilt over a mass of non-human cells. Want to be in a homosexual relationship and marry a same-sex partner? Nothing could be more natural. Want to marry three or more other people. The more loving people the more loving the family. Not quite yet, but we’ll get to that. Want to marry your dog. They say your spouse should also be your best friend so Fido is already half way there. Not quite yet, but we’ll get to that.
Last Fall I wrote about my concerns over some unusual astronomical phenomenon. Some people were talking about those events heralding a number of possible natural disasters. There was discussion of asteroids, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other destructive events. I was truly concerned because of the way the people have indeed begun to turn their backs to God. I was so concerned that I wrote some very pointed appeals to most of the people on my contact list related to the need for Americans to turn back to God. I guess they were a little too pointed since I received a number of very negative responses and lost a number of, what I had considered, good friends.
In my mind I was buying into the natural calamities that were being suggested at that time. Over time none of those things occurred and I began to think the interpretation of those astronomical events was wrong. However, as the presidential nomination process progressed I realized that devastation can befall America in other ways. Simply extending the policies of the Obama administration certainly qualifies. And the ultimate irony is that it will come about as a result of our very own actions – not some mysterious gravitational peculiarities in deep space. The Obama administration’s actions are the very embodiment of turning our backs to God. Obama’s actions have lead to a series of foreign policy failures and he is responsible for a failed economy here at home. To be sure he’s had a lot of help from the liberal media and after 7+ years he is still getting away with blaming it on Bush. And his approval rating is RISING! He will be gone in less than a year, but it appears Hillary will be continuing his policies. Actually, it seems likely she will make them worse. I have said repeatedly that Trump might be a disaster as President, but I will hold my nose and vote for him because Hillary will ruin the country. It’s that simple. Hillary equals ruination. So we will bring about our own ruination by turning away from God and voting for Hillary. And once that has happened I cannot think of any way we could recover from it. We will be Greece.
Algore has once again raised his ugly head (I mean that only in the rhetorical sense) to warn of even more dire consequences of man-made global climate warming change. We have to yield because it’s the scientific consensus. I have pointed out in my BLOG several instances in the past where the scientific consensus was impressive, but wrong. Today we seem to be living in nothing less than a perfect example of how wrong it can be.
Cholesterol! The hinges on death’s door! Fats! Vein stranglers! Butter! Are you trying to commit suicide? You are fat because you eat fat. Of this there was no question. The science was in. The science was indisputable. Listen to the scientific consensus and run to the store and hoard some corn oil. You must get fats out of your diet and replace them with carbs. Throw out your butter and buy some margarine. That was 40 years ago when, as some want now, the scientific consensus was bolstered by the full force of the U.S. Government to rid your plate of fat. They pushed agribusiness to breed the fat out of meat so we have the tasteless hamburger we “enjoy” today. As you all know, I’m sure, those policies have finally rid our society of the curse of obesity. Oh, happy day. In point of fact, those policies have hurt the population’s health more than a famine would have.
However, due to the persistence of a few “deniers” some cracks have appeared in the scientific consensus. Turns out cholesterol is practically meaningless. Turns out fat’s are not only your friends, but are imperative to good health. Remember when eggs were a sure path to a heart attack? Well, today they’re good for you. Actually, I shouldn’t say “good” because the scientists can’t quite bring themselves to admit the full extent of their wrongness. So eggs are OK in small quantities. Butter is now better for you than corn oil or olive oil (take that Mediterranean diet). Now that the deniers have broken the line of the scientific consensus we know that pork and beef are healthier than chicken. The new “consensus” is that the important factor in fats is the ratio between so-called omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The lower the amount of omega-6 compared to the amount of omega-3 the better. That makes wild caught salmon and tuna so healthy it will make your head spin.
Feel free then to make yourself a sandwich. Butter your bread and put a thick slice of beef, pork, tuna or salmon on it and enjoy. And while you’re munching remember this: you’re making yourself healthier – bite by bite. With your improved health fine tune your senses to notice that you will never hear anyone on the alphabet networks admit that the “scientific consensus” about fats was WRONG!
In a move to get Bernie Sanders out of their way, the Clintons have unleashed their media buddies at the Washington Post, New York Times and the alphabet networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) to drive Bernie out of the race and leave Hillary alone to get down to business. The Post started with a story about how awful it is that Bernie’s Secret Service protection is costing the poor tax payers $38,000 a day and if he stays in up to the convention it will total $1.3 million. Oh, the horror. Of course, those same media outlets were surprisingly un-interested in reporting Michelle’s 70 milion dollar vacations. Tradition carries a powerful punch and Bernie is about to suffer the wrath of a Clinton tradition.
The Orlando terrorist attack has forced the liberal media and politicians into contortions that would make a double jointed eel look as stiff as John “Lurch” Kerry. What’s the problem? Well, one politically protected entity – homosexuals – has been attacked by another politically protected entity – a Muslim. Oh, dear, what to do? Blame Republicans! What else?
Turns out that none of this would have happened if we had just banned all guns and all hateful Republican speech. Guns are a problem. Not people who believe as part of a religious rite that homosexuals should be shot, stabbed, burned, beheaded, thrown from tall buildings or just blown up. Then, of course, there’s all of Donald Trump’s hateful speech. On George Stepinapileofdufus’ ABC Sunday talk show, Matt Dowd (ABC’s House Conservative) said, “hateful thoughts lead to hateful words lead to hateful actions.” What motivated terrorists prior to Trump broaching the subject of radical Muslims all the way back to 1940 remains unclear. Perhaps there were radical Muslim seers who, in 1940, could foresee “the” Donald’s hateful speech. It does make you wonder why they would kill over 150 school children in Russia in 2004 because Trump was mean to them in 2015.
One of the pin-headed liberal nighttime talk show hosts said nobody should be allowed to acquire a weapon that can kill 49 people. We’re going to need a law to ban fertilizer, then. That’s what blew up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma. Better ban swords, too. From what I’ve heard a real Samurai warrior could wade through 49 unarmed partiers in a few seconds. It’s just a matter of training. Hey, while we’re at it why not ban Marijuana, Meth, Morphine and other dangerous drugs.
BTW, the ridiculously stupid TV reporters rail against “powerful assault weapons” like the AR-15 and the AK-47. These are not powerful weapons. The ammunition they fire is an intermediate size round that is much less powerful than a normal hunting rifle round. Some of the weapons described as “powerful” fire pistol rounds. Just look on Wikipedia at the rounds for the AR-15 and for the AK-47 and compare them with a 30-06 round. No 7 pound weapon could withstand the beating of a military weapon’s automatic fire with 30-06 rounds. Probably the lightest weapon that could auto fire the 30-06 was the WW2 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) of about 20 pounds. Of course, I guess I should bear in mind that liberals have never been ones to allow the facts to get in the way of their talking points.
