ILLOGICAL AND ABSURD MONDAY: EPISODE 2
It’s Monday work week has started but like most places of work we all like to hang round the watering hole or at lunch time and kick around some of the reads of the week so here are a few I picked out from some most illogical and absurd magazines and blogs.
First article from Time “Most Energy Drink Companies Market to Minors” I respond to this mainly on the idea that this is just another concept and way to regulate Americans, punish companies that make money.
Bottom line energy drinks make big money and our government wants it. When you read the article you see only the progressives want to indulge in this and this is nothing but a money grab in the name of the children because you the parent can’t control your child.
“Obama Community College Plan Builds on State Efforts” From U.S. News our president is itching to spend more money and keep people out of the work force at least I see it that way. The president wants to hitch a ride from Tennessee and pay for the first two years of community college.
The feds will pay the first 70% and Obama is hoping the rest of the 49 states will pick up the remaining 30%. This means increased taxes to pay for such a program it also takes people out of the work force while they attend collage full time.
Why anyone thinks paying for others education forcefully is a good idea is beyond me. Student loans has been a bad idea and a burden on society, maybe a volunteer program for people to donate so local communities or states can educate would be a better idea but we all know few would donate to such a program so let’s just force everyone with their taxes and in the name of education.
From the Politico “Mitt Romney Says He’s Considering a 2016 Run” Not a bad article from the progressive Politico pretty much just the facts ma’am. Why, why, why Mitt, you’re a two time looser you lost to McCain a looser among losers. Yes you were right about Obama but so was I so was every other conservative for all that matters.
Mitt you’re a moderate liberal republican and we don’t want that, conservatives don’t want that. Mitt are you wondering why the main stream media wants you to run…. Because you lose elections. Please Mitt do us a favor and doesn’t run, tell your buddy Jeb also and your fellow buddy Governor Chris to do the same.
From Solon “Ted Cruz & The New McCarthyism Dangerous Response to the Atrocity in Paris”. Written by Elias Isquith and this guy doesn’t even know and understand what McCarthyism is. Basically he’s trying to cash in on Chris Mathews ranting that Cruz is the reincarnation of Joseph McCarthy.
Isquith doe not name one thing that even remotely similar to McCarthy. What this is about, Isquith is a flaming progressive that dislikes Ted Cruz so he like Matthews calls him names.
For those of you that don’t know who Joseph McCarthy is well know your history and also know McCarthy was correct on communism but just attacked his idea in a bad way. There are many other names worse than being called McCarthyism like Communist. Isquith and Matthews are Communist in thought and they know that and that is why they despise Cruz and call names with no basis.
And finally from our progressive writers at Alternet “College Professor Has a Masters…. And is Living in Poverty” This article just goes to prove you don’t have to spend the money and time for a higher education to make a nice living in the county. Alissa Quart follows a college professor that is a single mother with a disabled child and how she is in poverty yet I don’t believe making $24K a year constitute poverty.
I guess we are to feel sorry that a successful student can’t make it in the real world work force. Let see I didn’t get higher education yet my wife and I bring in a tat over 100K a year and we pay big taxes on that. We are able to own a home, two cars and two motorcycles and we pay our bills on time and the real shocker is my wife and I both work for college graduates with the same degree that our $24K professor does; choices it came to choices and how we went about making those choices work for us.
Monday is the day to kind of look back on the most illogical and absurd articles of last week this way you have something to talk about at work and around the water cooler. Something you and your friends or spouse can chat about so enjoy.
USA Today “My death needs to mean something” publishes this article about Joshua Alcorn who practiced transgender lifestyle and committed suicide with a note blaming his parents. What the mass media is trying to claim is because Joshua’s parents were Christian it drove him to suicide.
Now mind you the Alcorns for good reason have remained silent on this and they should their son died. Why I bring this article up, nowhere it states the Alcorns were Christians or even went to church the allegation was levied by their son Joshua. An obvious confused young man we should not jump to conclusions with neither the son nor the parents but ask we pray for the parents and ask those parents that are in the same situation to get your child help.
They will hate you now for it and society with despise you for it but in the end what matters is getting your children help. If they had a drug or alcohol problem would you sit by say that is the way God made them I think not. After all Joshua wanted his life to matter.
Next the Huffington post “Kaley Cuoco Doesn’t Consider Herself and Feminist” making a big deal out of nothing as they drag up an article from Redbook on Kakey Cuoco star of the big bang theory she is Penny if you don’t watch the show.
Redbook asked Cuoco if she considered herself a feminist and my question is why ask who care? Cuoco said no and actually stated she did not endure discrimination growing up as a woman and loves to cook for her husband oh yeah she got breast implants too better kill her. Cuoco had to apologies via instagram for her remarks and I ask why? She said nothing as highlighted by HuffPo that is outrageous. Sorry progressives if a wife enjoys cooking for her husband and enjoys being a woman.
“Attracted to men Pastor feels called to called to marriage to a woman” NPR actually does it right and publishes a correct article. This young man has chosen not to follow his carnal wants and thoughts in the name of Jesus. I’m assuming they published this to show the outrage to the progressive, how can this be a man that wants and thinks about being attracted to other men is choosing not to in the name of his God.
This dude even got married to a women and his wife knows he finds men attractive but chooses to be with her because God and the Bible say that is real love and a real marriage. Good read what progressives don’t understand is how this man can do this. It’s kind of like having a craving for booze or cocaine but choosing not to go there knowing it will destroy not only your life but others too.
“California Becomes 10th State to Issue License to undocumented Immigrants” Newsweek covers California as they hand out driver’s license to illegal emigrants. Not the most brilliant thing for California to do but living here in California the government has yet to show me it makes good decisions.
Just more problems for law enforcement to deal with and the concept of rewarding bad behavior in the name of equality and wanting more money in a state that can’t stop spending money whether it’s legal or illegal.
“North Korea Responds With Fury To the U.S. Sanctions Over Sony Hack” U.S. sanctions North Korea and that’s a big deal, Democratic Underground has the brief and why we care..?
NK continues to deny they hacked Sony and I believe them I think they are telling the truth I do not believe NK has the ability to hack like some people think they do. Why they don’t take credit for this I’m not sure unless China is telling them if the hack does not fit they must refute.
“Evangelical Apocalypse is All Your Fault” The Daily Beast publishes this article and Jay Michealson puts his best foot forward to try and fun the evangelicals for crying it’s the end of the world.
Like Jay I’m not one to rush into it’s the end of the world scenario but I don’t laugh at those who try and put these complexities together. Yes Christians have been saying this for a long time, remember WW1 probably not but that was the most horrific war mankind has endured to date and I bet those people felt the end was near as well.
Making fun of Christians for trying to prepare for the end is just plain mean. One quote goes like this “ If the world is going to end, why are evangelicals so busy trying to save it? Who care is Barack Hussein Obama is president and gays are getting married? Don’t such event prove that evangelicals are right? Well I think you answered your own question Jay.
As far as Christians trying to save a dying world well I think that was the whole reason why Jesus came here and died for our sins and we his disciples are to do the same.
“5 Biggest Threats to Social Security From New Republican Congress” Alternet has an article going over the five biggest threats to social security by the Republican congress.
Biggest threat number one is not a threat and number two states the obvious but its threats 3 through five that have progressives scared to death that our government wants to cut some fat. They view Paul Ryan as the most dangerous man alive a titled very envious of conservatives. But honestly do we really think SS will ever be cut it’s a pipe dream but we can dream cant we.
“The Pope Thinks Climate Change is a Major Threat. So do American Catholics” Mother Jones adds to the shoveling of this gossip that Pope Francis will be embracing climate change soon, someday really soon they are sure of that and you Catholics are for it too.
Now until Pope Francis states climate change is the forefront of his ministry and world leaders must embrace this I’m not going for it just yet and I think we all just need to wait and see.
It’s easy to believe since Francis has already treaded on the secular science issue, homosexuality communism in the way of economic equality but again I think we need to wait and see.
If MJ is correct and Francis does embrace climate change in a progressive way it will mean the Vatican has now embraced communism in the name of God. Mind you yes the liberal media will just fall over themselves loving this but the minute Francis opens his mount about the immorality of abortion or reproductive rights they will be right there to cut his head off.
And that is just my opinion on it all
AMERICA IS NOT THE GREATEST COUNTY BUT COMPARED TO WHAT?
I think a lot of people have seen this clip from the HBO TV series “Newsroom”, when it came out it hit social media like a wildfire I must of saw it posted on Facebook at least 5 times each time getting a seal of approval from the average American. The thought was finally somebody in the media has made a stink on how our country has fallen, we are not the greatest country in the world but I ask compared to what are we not the greatest.
I personally think America fell from grace in 1973 when the Supreme Court legalized the killing of unborn children and all the states in the Union just sat back and allowed it.
The most defenseless of them all and now it’s open season to do what you want. But not everyone has turned their back on the unborn so I won’t speak in the terms of we because many of us don’t condone and do our best to refute this law.
Now with that said I then ask in compared to what is America not so great. Mind you for all those of you that think this was just a wonderful rant on the truth of where this country has gone remember this. HBO Time Warner is a very liberal progressive company that is very anti family, anti conservative and anti Christian. Remember HBO is the media outlet that gives Bill Maher his speaking platform to spread all his hateful lies so are you still glad HBO gave you a small little piece of happiness with this rant from the “Newsroom”.
Now mind you I’m not tearing into Jeff Denials he’s just an actor this is all Time Warner and Aaron Sorkin are the ones trying to fool people into thinking they know and understand Americans, well they don’t.
Denials character “Will” rants that freedom is enjoyed by lots of countries and yes in nature the concept of freedom is enjoyed but have you ever been to those counties. Most have a tax system that would blow your mind; the average tax rate in those countries is 60% while Americans enjoy an average 18%. Tax rate but I guess if you’re a progressive everyone is just a selfish to want to keep your own money.
“Will” goes on to spout about the high mortality rate of children in America. The infant mortality rate in the rant is backwards, yes we are 173 but that’s the number from worst to best worst being number 1 in which Afghanistan is the leader.
Also doctors in other countries look at premature birth deaths as medical waist, child death is not counted but overlooked because if a child is dies at birth or not in full term it does not count not so in America we count every statistic.
Next we get the whine about what America use to be and what it stood for, well in the 1950’s America was recovering from a depression and a world war. In the 50’s Americans finally got to reach what was known as the American dream of owning their own home about 50% owned a home.
In the 1960’s America began the journey to explore space and put a man on the moon. In the process it put a strain on communist relations and started the economic destruction of the Soviet Union.
In the 70’s America lost its battle to being the country of right when the Supreme Court allowed abortion but this did not mean the People that lived in America has lost grace completely this now meant we knew where to draw a battle line.
In the 1980’s we put the noose on the Soviet Union and by the 1990’s a defeated evil empire. In the 90’s we developed a mass communication for the world with the internet and in the millennium America was punched in the gut September 11 2001 but we rebounded and helped protect not only our country but those of the free world from terrorism and radical Islam.
Yes right now we are going through a rough patch but this is where Sorkin and HBO lack the intelligence of understanding the American. Denials character “Will” references to America by what is seen by mass media and not what is done by the individual.
“Will” rambles on saying “we built great things”, ever heard of the freedom towers, the internet is faster and more powerful than when it was invented, the Iphone has more power than lunar space capsules did in the 1960’s. We found a cure for Ebola when we needed it the most. Groups like Samaritan’s Purse are feeding the hungry and caring for the sick worldwide and its individuals that help Groups like Samaritan Purse to succeed.
You see HBO and Sorkin has “Will” only seeing the country and not seeing the content of the country. They don’t see the individual and the daily sacrifices he and she go through. They don’t see the charity and triumphs the individual makes in his and hers life they only see what is reported and have no concept of what the American is and does.
No America is not the greatest nation it once was but I ask you what are the greatest nations, the 180 that have freedom, China, Cuba are they the greatest. What country does not strive to be like America and what country is beating people down at their borders, Spain, Holland what country Aaron Sorkin and HBO?
A question to the atheist…….why?
Why attack religion and why don’t you spread the love when you do. For the past year there has been a law suites by atheist groups on nativity scenes, atheist group gets a Army Chaplin punished for sharing his faith and much more just type it in to your favorite search engine and enjoy and my question is why. Where were you the when they build the mosque on ground zero if you against religion.
Why do you care, seems to me if you really don’t believe in a God why do you spend so much time and money fighting something you don’t believe is real.
Another question why are you trying to break up the family, the above billboard has an oxymoron statement of a little girl writing to a fairy tale asking to skip church. For the most part families go to church. It’s normally a decision by both mother and father to take the kids to church.
For some it’s to learn and for others it’s to worship regardless it’s a family and even if it was not a family and only a parent taking his or her child to church the atheist community is telling children to just say no. Do not honor your parents’ wishes and say no.
The above billboard appears near where I live and if you really think about it this guy is right to saying question everything. But be honest everyone worships something; don’t think that anyone is free from that. You may not bow down to your money or to your addiction but everybody worships something.
Yes question everything, no real Christian can honestly say they walked in total blindness. God does not tell us not to ask questions he just asks us to believe in him. If the Christian faith was not filled with questions then we wouldn’t have the doctrines we have now.
Some feel baptism is important, some feel worshiping on the Saturday is important, speaking in tongues but what binds us together is one thing, the way to salvation.
We live in a free country thus far; the freedom allows us to worship and to belong to a religion like atheism, Islam, Christianity. Much of the free world allows worshiping your chosen God. So why are you the atheist demanding we take God out of a free society that condones God?
Countries that refuse to condone God are pretty much communist. God is not tolerated in China, North Korea does not allow God be worshiped or taught. Cuba and the former Soviet did not allow God why do want to convert a free country to communism.
I get you hate the idea of a God but don’t hate the people that believe, don’t hate a concept that has allows freedom.
You may think your humanism is freedom but it’s not, you’re bound to nothing and constantly looking for something that cannot be found. Don’t take that away from those who have found peace and don’t try and change a freedom that is founded on a Godly belief, why would you do that?
The above blog popped up on one of the blogging forums I use on Facebook, it was posted by Christian Surf and written by Allen Clifton who I’m kind of thinking is not a Christian as defined by most born again Christians would define but I can’t judge his heart only God can
It’s a pretty negative blog attacking Conservative Christians mainly Conservatives in general, I read through it and thought I would rebuttal as a conservative Christians since he’s calling me out I’ll answer his call.
The first thing is he labels all conservatives republicans and defines them as being in a cult but that simply is not true. Conservatives just can’t vote for democrats, the Democratic Party is way too progressive right now and is just too much like communism to me.
Believe me not all conservatives are republicans it’s just that’s all we can vote for, no conservative is thrilled with theses deadbeat rinos that come up for election but we either vote for them and try and change policy with a moderate republican or don’t vote and deal with deadbeat democrats and their socialism you can’t win either way.
Some conservatives will refuse to vote for moderate republicans no matter what is on the line they have too much conviction to compromise with socialism.
The next issue was abortion, as a Christian Mr. Clifton is against abortion and thinks it’s wrong and that’s really good to hear, it kind of leaves a emptiness in your soul when you meet a person that states they are a believer but thinks killing an unborn child is fine.
Clifton feels if somebody wants or has an abortion well that’s none of his business and frankly it’s nobody else’s business.
This is where I disagree and think why most level headed Christians have the view of “we cannot condone a society that kills its unborn”.
It should be all our concerns that we have legalized the murder of unborn children; it’s too convenient to just dismiss something that is wrong just because you’re told it’s none of your business.
My question to the Christian that views abortion is nobody’s business but the person having it is how do justify this if you know it’s wrong.
Would you stand by and knowingly let a person be murdered, would you be more concerned if your state government decided to legalize the killing of adults that stayed on government assistance for more than say 8 years and now is a burden on society.
What makes the abortion ok because it’s none of your business, because the child is not yet born, it can’t communicate or do complex rational thought so it’s not really a living person.
When does it not be okay, when the unborn child is 2 month in the womb, 3 months, 5, 8 when is it not okay to kill the unborn.
Guns, Mr. Clifton does not like people with guns well I own a few guns and I own them for protection. If somebody is breaking into my house I have an obligation to protect my family and I guarantee the police will not get to my house before the bad guy has done his bad deed.
Christians also believe in the 2nd amendment and the constitution that gives them freedom to bear arms.
The reason why our founding father constructed the 2nd amendment was not to just protect from home invasion of some random thug but to give the American citizen the ability to protect themselves from tyrannical power of a government and from the average thug that would threaten your personal property.
No Christian wants to use a gun but its there if we need it because some brilliant men thought it should be your right to protect yourself.
The next is Homosexuality, yes I’m opposed to the gay lifestyle on a few levels one being it’s against what the Bible teaches us as a matter of fact the inspired word of God (the Bible) discusses this at least twice first being Leviticus 18:22 and again the New Testament in Romans 1: 26-27. Mind you this verse is not condoning the act of homosexuality.
I don’t think God is just picking on the homosexual there is more here than just two of the same sexes trying to act like a heterosexual couples. Homosexuality if practiced is unsafe, unhealthy and brings risk not to mention it’s has no design to reproduce itself.
As a conservative I oppose homosexuality because the lifestyle is destructive and anti family. Today’s gay life is in your face “you must accept me and my life choices or else you’re a homophobe or a bigot” this is a sexually based sin that has embraced the politically correctness for safety.
It refuses to acknowledge its hurting and is based in a lie, becomes unstable for a society that tries to be the truth right for all that live in it.
I personally have had dealings with homosexuality in my own family and I have first hand seen the destructive behavior it has brought to not only my family but other families that it has involved with.
It’s morally wrong and biblically wrong, God does care when people hurt other people and hurt themselves it does matter to him.
Next is giving to charity and why go into this I’m at a loss, Clifton said he gives the conservative the nod on giving to charity but states why should we since their church tells them to give tithes anyhow.
Not all conservatives are Christian so can’t expect all to tithe to their church. Churches do not command that we tithe to them. I would say if you go to a church that expects you to give tithing then you should leave.
What the inspired word of God does say is this in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 I believe most healthy Christians practice this in give based on its the right thing to do we do it out of our heart not because a church tells us to.
He goes on and pulls the greed card on conservatives that we all just want to be rich and hoard the money.
Yes we want a free market and yes capitalism is the best way to do business in a free market but you’re talking about capital cronyism not true free market capitalism where the government lets society earn their own money by working hard and helping those that cannot help themselves. The opposite of all this is communism and I’m not for that.
Right now both our state and federal governments punish you for succeeding in life by taxing you. They use those taxes wastefully if anyone should get a lecture on greed and selfishness it’s our government.
Clifton states that different denomination interprets the bible very differently and I do not agree on that. Most Judeo Christian denominations that are healthy in the word of God see God’s word all the same.
They may have different doctrines and put emphases on some biblical practices over the other but most view God’s word the same. What Clifton is talking about is religions and born again Christians don’t belong to a religion they belong to a relationship with God.
Clifton then ask what makes a person a Christian, is it going to church, reading the bible. Clifton believes that being a Christian comes down to who you are as a person and how closely you try and live your life with the beliefs of Jesus Christ and that is a pretty good answer except if the thief on the cross had followed that definition he would have gone to hell.
Salvation is what makes you a Christian, John chapter 3 verse 16 sums up what it takes to be a Christian and belong to Jesus Christ.
It is why an Atheist is not a Christian, it’s why a Muslim is not a Christian and why a ton of people that go through life thinking all I have to be is good and I’ll get to heaven are wrong Matthew chapter 7 verses 21-23
At the end Clifton just bashes conservative Christians for enjoying guns, practicing greed selfishness and hate. My question for Clifton that feels progressives and leftist are more compassionate…where is the compassion?
END OF THE WEEK, THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL
End of the week again halfway through December and almost the end of the year. As I type this we here in Nor Cal and Northern Nevada are supposed to be in the mist of what is dubbed the storm of the century and outside my window it’s just cloudy with maybe a promise of more rain to come. Even more reason why I beg people to not put your trust of weather and climate from man it will always bite you, sometimes hard sometimes just a nip but it will always bite you.
In the news Jonathan Gruber the smartest man in MIT that helped build the ACA (Obama Care) and calling the average American stupid faced some payback justice with a hearing on Capitol Hill. What is even more disturbing is that Gruber is now on record as saying that abortion is a “social good” due to the claim that it reduces the number of “marginal children” what is the definition of marginal children well think, the progressive ideology is saying poor people don’t count and they need abortion to keep more poor children from being introduced into our society that cost us and our government more dollars, kind of sad that one would view a life based on reducing its cost instead of life as a miracle and joyous that should be saved and protect at all cost.
Our smartest woman in California Dianne Feinstein put most everyone and all of our foreign dignitaries and military men and women at risk when she released the senate CIA report a few days ago. The report just stated what we all knew with regards to torture being done to capture war criminals in regards to our September 11th 2001 attack in New York City. America did what it needed to do, if anything we should have done more. Bush failed us in the fact he did not allow Americans to invest themselves more into the 911 attacks like America did after the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941. I believe because of this a division was allowed to happen and Americans quickly forgot why we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Some 13 years later some view this invasion a mistake and I believe if Bush had made this more of a personal attack on each American and his and hers Freedom we would have a different view and maybe had a less decisive government that seems to attack our freedom for power.
This week I published two blogs first one entitled I BLAME YOU MR. FARRAKHAN, MR. SHARPTON AND MR. JACKSON; I blame the deaths of Travon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown on the lack of leadership that Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have brought to the American Black community. Second blog WE WOULD MISS YOU is based off a post that a FB friends posted. Something that is real in the hearts of certain people but is rarely looked at from their point of view and I felt it needed to be said so those who suffer with anxiety, depression, and loneliness would know there are people out there that do care.
Movie to see this Christmas month is a good one called “It happened on 5th Avenue” The Christmas movies should start churning out about now and this is a good one. Very much like “It’s a wonderful life” as a matter of fact Frank Capra was offered the movie and turned it down. It starts off a bit slow but stick with it because the middle half to the end it really gets going and although it’s a bit 1947 corny at times it drives home some real good points about love, greed and the pursue of freedom.
Not a bad week this week gave me and I hope you were dealt the same. I’ll be heading into the new week working a bit then off to deliver some gifts to the family and hopefully enjoying the movie Gods and Kings. I know it will be Biblically unsound but with Bale as Moses it should be at least entertaining and that my friend is the lowdown of the week.
I BLAME YOU MR. FARRAKHAN, MR. SHARPTON AND MR. JACKSON
As we head into a new week we are compounded with more national unrest with Ferguson and now the NYPD issue with the death of Eric Garner it’s just about every hour a new story pops up about a new death by law enforcement. Some are by white officers and some of black officers of the law; the blame game has started and when it will stop nobody knows.
Everybody is pointing fingers and blaming somebody so I’m throwing my finger in to the mix and blaming three individuals for the death of Travon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner. I blame you Luis Farrakhan, Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jessie Jackson you three are to blame for the death of Martin, Brown and Garner, their deaths is on your heads.
For those of you that don’t know who Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson are let me give you a brief education. Farrakhan the leader of the group the Nation of Islam, now when Islamic leaders say Islam is a peaceful religion they obviously don’t count Farrakhan as a part of their religion. Farrakhan is nothing more than a ball of hate, he hates Jews, he hates Christians and he probably hates anyone that does not wear his shade of black.
Rev Al Sharpton the owner and operator of the National Action Network whose slogan at this point is “No Justice No Peace” kind of threatening for a Baptist minister to be a part of. Sharpton who owes over $4 million in back taxes through the NAN is credited with names like race baiter, does nothing what a minister would or should do in times like this. As soon as racial trouble starts Sharpton is the first to jump at a chance to shine on TV, caring nothing about the situation but only about Al and how Al can get some TV time. Sharpton is now President Obama’ right hand man on black leadership in America very sad indeed.
Rev Jesse Jackson, Jackson pretty is on his last legs and washed up. His heyday was to be in the 70’s and 80’s where he was to be the new man in the black leadership taking the place of the late Martin Luther King Jr. but that was not to be had. Jackson failed to be the next King because he was a racist and had hate in his heart the total opposite of what MLK was and stood for and because of this Jackson became like Sharpton and race baiter. Saying God bless you to your face and then stabbing you in the back as soon as you walked by; Jackson is no better than the anti civil rights protesters he marched against with MLK in the 60’s.
Now how do I make an accusation like I did that Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson are responsible for the deaths of Martin, Brown and Garner simple money and power and influence. Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson hold money, power and influence in the Black community and instead of using that to help they use it to divide. We are told we must be tolerant of people, we must love people we must help people and I state that Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson do none of that.
Farrakhan who leads the Nation of Islam does nothing but teach hate and division in the Black community. Instead of condemning black violence Farrakhan promotes it or does nothing about it. With Farrakhan’s position he has the ability to take the youth of America that desire to follow Islam and teach, peace, tolerance, love but he fails this in every way.
Sharpton the leader of the NAN has the opportunity to lead today’s youth where Farrakhan fails to do. Sharpton has use race as his main subject to divide people. He’s lies and encouraged people to lie. Sharpton a Baptist minister is a definition of hypocrisy. Men of God are not to start division but be a tie that bonds together and Sharpton has done nothing of the sort. Of the three in contempt Sharpton should be doing most with the youth of today, he should be teaching Gods word and preaching salvation but I have heard none of that from this Baptist minister.
Rev. Jesse Jackson much like Sharpton is too a Baptist minister and to spreads division in the name of equal right for black Americans. Jackson one of the biggest failures of the three continues to practice division and communism. He never learned from King Jr. on how to be a great civil rights activist he only tries to exploit his fame for money and power. In my opinion Sharpton and Jackson are ministers for credibility only and not for saving souls. Of the three Jackson has seen how it should be done by following MLK but unlike King Jr. he never capitalized on Kings ethics and moral sense of duty to the black community. What should have been a man to pick up where King Jr. left off Jackson never learned or knew how much he could of done for all Americans instead he took the low road of race baiting and name calling.
All three men who died, Martin, Brown and Garner came from broken homes; Brown and Garner were killed while committing a crime. Where Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson failed Martin, Brown, and Garner was in there lack on moral actions. Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson should have been not only preaching obedience to the community but obedience to the family. Sharpton and Jackson two ministers have the opportunity to show how much God loves all men and how all men need to love God and they don’t it’s more of an us vs them kind of thing.
Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson are men of fame and power in the black community. Instead of trying to bring families together, condemning broken homes they jump on the bandwagon of division every time controversy starts, they pull the race card out and yell injustice when they could be using their influence to teach the youth not to be involved with criminal activity. When there is a time for cooler heads to prevail, when we need people of influence and mentors to calm a situation down neither three do any of the sort but instead continue to fan the fire of hate and riots and when that is what young people see from leaders in their community that is what they will imitate.
If the Black community is struggling so much like Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson claim then they need to try harder to put the fires of race out, they need to be the peacemakers of the black community and it’s because they are the exact opposite of is why I hold the deaths of Martin, Brown and Garner on Farrakhan, Sharptons and Jackson head.
If you have the ability to hold and control and audience like Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson then let it be for peace, let it be for God’s love and by all means Sharpton and Jackson preach salvation to the community. What does it gain a man to have everything given to him like Sharpton and Jackson want it to be if in the end he gains nothing with God.
END OF THE WEEK LOW DOWN, THE DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL
End of the week so to speak just wanted to give the low down of it all and it’s a dirty shame it has to end but like all things it too the week that is must pass. My week was not too bad; work was okay as I work in Northern California in a homey sized hospital in the valley. Can’t complain too much my coworker helped me put a way a trouble free week of saving and maintaining lives and we managed a few laughs along the way.
Thanksgiving was okay as well, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a normal Thanksgiving with just the nice part of the family, Christmas is in a few weeks so I have no clue what to expect but I’m hoping for a repeat performance of Thanksgiving. We finally got some rain with substance, California has been a bit dry this last year and a half and since California is such a bureaucracy and borderline communist state we have no real way of finding a common sense approach to fixing the problem so we pray.
On the nation front we still have the headlines of Ferguson and now New York City. Cops are getting bashed big time by criminals not giving up but instead either high on dope or just refusing to give it a rest and when that happens everyone pays; idiots!
Myself I churned out a few blogs over the long week “The Propaganda Channel” a look at the H2 channel and how it no longer has historical programs but spews out propaganda for secular science. “End of Days Behavior” a look at how people view our so called odd weather as a gauge to determine the end of days. I say bunk on that and offer people to look at themselves and society to gauge end of days. “Can we forecast Gods Creation” What might be the hottest year on record people are freaking out over word temperatures, I suggest you look at the long end of forecasting Gods creations it might surprise you that the earth heats and cools over time.
Some good reads come from Barb Wire a great E magazine, first one on how Jesus does not contradict his father nor the Holy Spirit on sin. The next one is the continuing struggle for secularism to try and stop helping hurting people as our country slowly outlaws trying to normalized abnormal behavior.
It’s been an interesting week in my thoughts, I watch my family struggle with work and trying to keep a family business afloat while regulations and county bureaucracy try and take it away and I wonder just on a second thought why God took me away from that battle. Maybe because there is no way I could win it with my mentality, instead God gives me the power of prayer to try and focus on the ones that mean the most and that is hard in its self. My thoughts have also been wandering about on what I think will be and inevitable line that will be drawn on morality. I feel a time is coming where we will have to make a choice what side we will stand and I will be praying very hard that my family chooses that right side. It’s going to be a gray world coming and I just hope my friends and family can see through the gray and choose the right side of the line.
And that my friends is the low down of the week
I don’t have children but I once was a child and I thank God every day that my mother and father took the time to teach my brother and I who and what God is. That old idea of “I’ll let my kids decide for themselves if they want to go to church or learn about God is.” is a mistake and in my opinion parents that have this belief already have learned a notion that either they don’t find God important or they don’t want there child to know who God is regardless it’s a shame.
Professor J. Budziszewski from the University of Texas in Austin points out eight articles of a creed that is being taught by declining to educate ones child of who and what God is in his book “What we can’t not know”. The books main content is based on natural law, the laws of nature that God has set up for us to know and follow, an excellent book worth reading whether if your into natural law and intellectual thought or not.
Budziszewsk points out parents teach their children a defined creed based on eight articles… “A good many parents decline to give their children any religious instruction, saying that they think it is better to “let them make up their own minds”. But declining to teach is itself a way of teaching, a very effective one, and it teaches children a very definite creed with eight articles:
(1) It is not important for children to know anything about God. (2) The questions that children naturally ask about Him require no answers. (3) Parents know nothing about Him worth passing on. (4) To think about Him adequately, no preparation is needed. (5) What adults think about Him makes no difference. (6) By implication, He does not make any difference either; God is not to be treated as God. (7) If anything is to be treated as God, it will have to be something other than He. (8) This is the true creed, and all other creeds are false.”
The shame of it all is children rely on their parents for guidance and moral education. It is not unusual for parents to be unequally yoked and divided on this issue even more reason why both parents should have a complete understanding of each other’s moral and ethical qualities they bring to a marriage or relationship.
In my opinion children under the age of accountability do not have the moral obligation to seek out God this should be the responsibility of the mother and father. J. Budziszewski articles of this creed is a symptom our from what our society is teaching. The lesson plan is defined as there is no one or personal God, no real moral absolute, and a vague personal ethic.
You can find more valuable information reading J. Budziszewski book “What We Can’t Not Know” its our responsibility to teach our kids about who and what is God, it is reckless not to.
