Thanks Duck Dynasty for the Christmas Gift

  • Posted by Lloyd Marcus on December 25, 2013 at 3:57pm

    Duck Dynasty gave me an unexpected wonderful gift for Christmas; a renewed hope in America. Polling on various social issues confirm that liberals have made significant inroads towards secularizing America into a culture in which anything goes.

    The norm on TV is disrespectful kids scolding their parents, cussing, youths sleeping around, the promotion of homosexuality and poking fun at Christians. Traditional principles and values are on the chopping block.

    Several months ago, I heard about this cable show, Duck Dynasty, that was kicking American Idol’s butt in the ratings on Wednesday nights. Since the recent controversy surrounding the show, I learned that Duck Dynasty is huge; the highest rated show in cable history.

    So what does the show’s popularity tell me? It tells me that instinctively people are drawn to things wholesome and good; traditional principles and values.

    I watched a recently produced family Christmas movie. While it was somewhat enjoyable, a subtext of the movie was the female lead feeling hurt over the male lead’s reluctance to ask her to move in with him. Note that marriage was not on her agenda.

    Then, I watched my favorites, “It’s A Wonderful Life”, “The Wiz of Oz”, “A Christmas Carol” and “The Sound of Music”. There is a reason that millions of people feel their Christmas season is not complete without viewing at least one of these classics. These old movies possess that sappy wholesome intangible something that makes us feel good, safe, warm and happy.

    Neither the coarsening of our culture or liberal indoctrination have been able to destroy millions of Duck Dynasty viewer’s instinctive attraction to wholesome tradition family values.

    So thank you Duck Dynasty. Thank you for letting me know that the battle for the culture of America is not over. Perhaps, Phil Robertson’s leadership will inspire more Americans to push-back against the tyranny of political correctness.

    I still get a thrill hearing George Bailey say in “It’s A Wonderful Life”, “Burt do you know me? My mouths bleedin’ Burt! Zuzu’s petals! Merry Christmas!”; Judy Garland as Dorothy singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”; the nun singing “Climb Every Mountain” in “The Sound of Music”.  Yes, I am just a sappy old fashion Christmas kind of guy.

    Thus, I will close quoting Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol”, “God bless us everyone.”

  • Liberalism is sin

  • Posted by Judson Phillips on December 23, 2013 at 8:05am in Tea Party Nation Forum

    If you try to understand liberalism, you will either duct tape your head to keep it from exploding or end up with a serious drinking problem.

    Liberalism does not make sense.  That is, unless you understand one fundamental underpinning of liberalism.

    Liberalism is sin.

    Most people have an immediate reaction to that statement.  Either they support it or totally reject it based on the assumption it is a religious dissertation on liberalism. 

    It is not.  Religion has almost nothing to do with it.

    If religion has nothing to do with it, how is liberalism a sin?

    To understand why liberalism is a sin, there are a couple of concepts that must be understood.  First, the world as we know it is government by laws.  There are laws that govern science, math, economics and liberty. 

    These laws exist whether we like them or not.  And they may not be violated without consequences. 

    Sin is not just violating the laws of God.  It is violating the laws of nature. 

    Gravity is not just a good idea, it is the law.  If anyone doubts that, go jump from a tall building and you will quickly discover the penalty for violating the law of gravity.

    Economics has certain laws.  Even if economists cannot agree on a lot of things, there are certain rules that apply.  If you create too many dollars chasing too few products, you have inflation.  In other words, if there is a fiat currency, you cannot simply keep printing money.  If the laws of economics are violated, there is a disastrous result.  If the laws of economics are properly followed, the end result is prosperity.  Liberals love to sin against the laws of economics and the end result is always poverty.

    Nature has certain laws as well.  Most men and women want to form a family so they can create the next generation.  Destroy the incentive to create a family you end up with poverty and carnage.  Urban America is a classic example.  Government policy since 1965 has been to destroy the family in urban America. 

    What is the result?  In urban America you have huge pockets of poverty.  In urban America you have an abundance of crime.  Single parenthood is the surest ticket to poverty for a family and for the male children of the single mother, the chances of becoming a prison statistic increase astronomically.

    Liberalism as a sin is simply willfully violating the laws of God, man and nature. 

    People instinctively understand that you do not steal from your neighbor, kill another human being or harm an unborn child.  Liberals sever their reality from the base that gives our existence stability.

    Liberals take money from the targeted group and give it to the preferred group.  Liberals debase the currency so they can spend other people’s money.  Liberals have taken the language and twisted it apart from any meaning. 

    Liberals are like Humpty Dumpty in Through The Looking Glass. “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”

    Liberals are like Humpty Dumpty.  Tolerance means you must accept whatever they do.  Fairness means benefits for the preferred class at the cost of the class that is not preferred.  Equality means taking wealth or rights from one and giving it to another.

    Conservatives joke about Barack Obama and his narcissism.  Yet, Obama is the ultimate expression of liberalism.  The liberal says behold I am the God of nature and nature’s laws, therefore  I am above nature’s laws.

    Liberals believe they can do anything they want without the consequences of the laws of nature.  They will do things mere mortals consider to be immoral and do so with impunity.  They violate the laws of economics, liberty and nature. 

    Unfortunately for the liberal there are far too often consequences. 

    Tragically, time after time, we see it is not just the liberal who pays for the sins of his arrogance. 

    The Bible says, “The wages of sin are death.”  Unfortunately for too many people, the wages of the sins of liberalism are poverty, tyranny and too often, mass murder.

  • The War on Rich White Men

  • Posted by Lloyd Marcus on December 16, 2013 at 4:31am

    I heard a knock on the door of my hotel room. It was Donald. “Turn on Megyn Kelly. She is reporting about an MSNBC commentator’s claim that using the term “Obamacare” is the same as calling him the N word.”

    MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry’s accusation is absurd. It is an obvious weak attempt to distance the president from Obamacare which is wreaking havoc in the lives of millions of Americans who are losing their health care.

    What I found most disturbing and what I wish to focus on is Perry’s evil attempt to gin up hate against “wealthy white men” who she claims created the term “Obamacare” to demean and undermine the black president.

    Due to the Obama Administration playing the race card to win every argument and silence opposition, America is polarized along racial lines. Perry’s false accusation is like throwing gasoline on the flames of national racial tensions; as irresponsible and cruel as screaming fire in a crowded auditorium.

    Perry’s specific use of the term “wealthy white men” was insidiously strategic. Low info blacks in my family along with blacks across America will believe Perry’s nonsense to be the gospel truth. With the wave of black flash mob violence and the rising incidents of the racially motivated knockout game, the last thing we need as a nation is another black TV celeb promoting a racially charged false narrative.

    Democrats and liberals like Perry have been promoting the same irresponsible, divisive and racist false narrative for decades. They claim that all evil in the world is the fault of racist, greedy, sexist and evil wealthy white men usually identified as conservative Republicans.

    Perry’s rant is simply the latest blow to the chin of America’s white males by a liberal. Flash back to New York Times columnist, Maureen Dowd’s 2009 article titled, “White Man’s Last Stand.” Dowd’s article excoriated white men. http://bit.ly/1bsYmc5

    Obama and company’s reelection strategy was centered around a shock-and-awe media blitz branding the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney as an evil super-wealthy racist white guy. http://bit.ly/1cz7noO

    So, we get it. While political correctness is the unwritten law of the land, it is open season on trashing and targeting the American rich white male for destruction; even deemed morally correct and patriotic.

    Who is out there giving rich white men props for their many positive contributions to society? Where are their advocates? I am sure with me being an American black man, liberals think it unconscionable that I would suggest such a thing; elevating me to “super” Uncle Tom status.

    In 1895, Booker T. Washington formed a coalition of black leaders, politicians and white philanthropists (rich white guys), with a long-term goal to build the black community’s economic strength and pride by focusing on self-help, education and entrepreneurship.

    Perry’s ridiculous claim that the term “Obamacare” is the new N word is laughable. The N word is defined as a contemptuous term for a black or dark-skinned person. Sadly, American rich white men are viewed with a similar contemptuousness; despised, kicked around and unfairly mistreated.

    Bottom line, Ms Perry and the whole liberal machine pushing the war on rich white men should be ashamed of themselves. The left’s hate speech is ripe with negative consequences for the lives of real people; decent folks who simply worked hard, made good choices and achieved their American Dream.

    Why should they be demonized in such a way as to inspire violence against them? It simply is not right.

  • Listen Up Republicans

    Since voting for Republicans seems to be pretty much the same as voting for the Democrats I will not vote in any election from now on that does not have a strong Conservative (Tea Party) or Libertarian candidate.  Quite a few of my family also agree with me on this.   Goodbye!

    Obama wins award

    December 13, 2013

    And the Politifact ‘Lie of the Year’ award goes to…
    Posted by Staff

    The political fact-checking organization Politifact has deemed President Obama’s claim that if you like your plan you can keep it under the healthcare overhaul its “Lie of the Year.”

    “It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system,” Politifact wrote. “But the promise was impossible to keep.”

    Millions of people have been told by their insurers that their plans will be canceled under the Affordable Care Act, despite Obama’s promises that no one who liked their plan would lose it.

    The White House announced a workaround earlier this year at a press conference in which Obama said he heard “loud and clear” why individuals were upset over receiving the cancellation notices despite his promise.

    Ex-Official Says FBI Can Secretly Activate an Individual’s Webcam Without the Indicator Light Turning On

    The FBI can secretly activate a computer’s webcam to spy on an individual without turning on the indicator light, a former official revealed to the Washington Post in an article published Friday.

    According to the Washington Post’s account of what Marcus Thomas — former assistant director of the FBI’s Operational Technology Division in Quantico — said, “The FBI has been able to covertly activate a computer’s camera — without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording — for several years, and has used that technique mainly in terrorism cases or the most serious criminal investigations.”

    “Because of encryption and because targets are increasingly using mobile devices, law enforcement is realizing that more and more they’re going to have to be on the device — or in the cloud,” Thomas added, in reference to remote storage services. “There’s the realization out there that they’re going to have to use these types of tools more and more.”

    TheBlaze has previously reported on hackers using remote access tools to activate an individual’s webcam and spy on them.

    This post has been updated to reflect that Thomas is an ex-FBI official.

    Just when you thought Obama and the liberals couldn’t sink any lower :

    Health Reform: A cancer patient who spoke out against the cancellation of his insurance by ObamaCare now faces an IRS audit he may not live to see, and says he’ll pay the fine rather than burden his family.

    Bill Elliott knows the meaning of the adage that the only two things that are certain are death and taxes, for he is now staring both in the face.

    Like the Tea Party before him, Elliott faces an IRS audit for speaking out against the ObamaCare that canceled his insurance coverage he liked and was promised he could keep.

    He appeared recently on Charleston, S.C.’s WQSC and was told by the radio host that “you stood up and spoke out about how ObamaCare screwed over your insurance and probably would kill you, and what’s the next thing that happened? You get audited by the IRS. That is not a coincidence.”

    Elliott responded, “No, it’s not.”

    “I like my doctor. I love my insurance,” Elliott told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly last Thursday night. “They were paying just about everything, including medication and medical devices.”

    Then he got the letter that told him that his cancer was considered “beyond a catastrophic pre-existing condition” and his plan was being canceled because of new regulations.

    Elliott says he was given the option of a new $1,500-per-month plan, up from the $180 per month or so that he’d been paying.

    “Now with ObamaCare, the man that I’ve got looked into it, they are not going to pay for pharmaceuticals or medical devices. MRI that I had last month before I got canceled was $3,000. Now, if I have to have another one, it costs me out of my pocket $3,000,” Elliott told Kelly on Nov. 7.

    It started so innocently

    Years ago it started so innocently,  people started saying Happy Holidays to embrace both Christmas and New Years.  No malice intended – no anti Christian intent.  

    But then Liberalism took hold and carried it to a whole new level and it quickly became an Anti Christian movement, trying to take Chirst out of the holiday.  Now it has become   en epidemic. 

    Unfortunately we Christians didn’t realize what was going on until it was too late and now we have to push back with everything we have to overcome this liberal movement.   As nativity scenes disappear from public places we need to put them in our yards and maybe start wearing crosses and other religious symbols on our person.  

    Miscellaneous Thoughts

    It occurred to me this Thanksgiving that everyone went to such lengths to try new and exotic recipes that nothing tasted like it should.   The sweet potatoes with brown sugar and pecans did not tast like sweet potatoes.  The yellow squash which I normally love tasted more like sour cream and buttered crackers that the actual squash.  And the turnips did not taste like turnips, etc.

    I would rather cook it, put a little butter on it and serve it so everything would taste the way it is supposed to.
