Mothers, Sons and Sacrifice

A mother asked President George W. Bush... 'Why did my son have to die in Iraq?'

A mother asked President Clinton.. 'Why did my son have to die in Saudi Arabia ?'

A mother asked President George H.W. Bush... 'Why did my son have to die in Kuwait ?'

Another mother asked President Johnson... 'Why did my son have to die in Vietnam ?'

Another mother asked President Truman... 'Why did my son have to die in Korea ?'

Another mother asked President Roosevelt.. 'Why did my son have to die on Iwo Jima ?'

Another mother asked President Wilson... 'Why did my son have to die on a battlefield in France ?'

Yet another mother asked President Lincoln... 'Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg ?'

And yet another mother asked President Washington... 'Why did my son have to die on a frozen field near Valley Forge ?'

And long, long ago, a mother asked..

'Heavenly Father .. why did my Son have to die on a cross outside of Jerusalem ?'

The answer is always the same... 'So that others may live, and dwell in peace, happiness, and freedom.'

Transport Seen Leaving D.C.

Quote of the Day

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

C.S. Lewis

Bosch Fawstin, a former Muslim raised in America, was recently interviewed (18 min) by Jamie Glazov.  Fawstin spoke the hard truth about Islam, which he describes this way:
Islam is submission. Islam is death and destruction. Islam is here to control. Islam is here to make life on earth hell.
In this interview, as well as an interview (7 min) last month on a program called The Flipside, Fawstin spoke of how he was raised in a so-called “moderate” Muslim family – a family where Hitler was greatly admired.
Fawstin spoke of Islam’s hatred toward women and how commonplace physical abuse was in his immediate and extended family.  He spoke of arranged marriages, of tears shed when babies were born who were girls, and of girls being told to expect physical violence after they are married.
He spoke of vile Jew-hatred that is endemic in Islamic culture.
He spoke of how his journey away from Islam was a process, noting several pivotal experiences such as observing how non-Muslim friends lived in households that did not embrace violence.  He was also deeply affected by Ayn Rand.
By 9/11, Fawstin had abandoned his religion and says that after the jihadist attack he was in a “flat-out rage,” not only because of seeing fellow Americans jumping out of the towers, but because of our “pathetic response” to what happened:
Our government’s job it seems post 9/11 was to protect Islam, not us. Defend Islam. Defend Islam. From George Bush to Obama.
Asked whether there is such a thing as moderate Islam, Fawstin said: “No. There is only Islam. Islam is immoderate by nature.”
Fawstin spoke of how very few leaders speak the truth about Islam.  In fact, essentially no leaders, as he pointed out that even Allen West has softened his language and that while Ted Cruz uses the word “jihad,” he never speaks about “Islam.”  Fawstin tweeted this last month:
Islam doesn't make our Islamic enemy believe they're going to win, Islamophilic Western politicians make them believe they're going to win.
Fawstin seems to be on a mission to educate others about the threat that Islam poses to all of civilization.  His primary tool of communication is through the creation of a comic-book superhero – Pigman – who battles jihadists.  Fawstin talks about how Muslims dread contact with anything related to pigs, noting that if he had an airline he would have all the seats covered with pigskin leather, making it the safest airline flying.
He is also outspoken on other matters, as when he created a bold, graphic image featured on his blogspot that reads:
Ebolatarianism: Barack Obama’s refusal to do what’s necessary to protect Americans from a deadly disease.
Fawstin is a serious man talking about the most serious matters of our time.
His comics can be found at comixology, here.  His blog can be found here.

10,535 pages of ObamaCare condensed to 4 sentences:

This is the best explanation of what has happened over the past year…

Nice summary by a Purdue engineer:

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to uninsure the insured.

2. Next, we require the newly uninsured to be re-insured.

3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became uninsured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured, which will be free of charge to them.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is called "redistribution of wealth"

... or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM.


Brilliant. Accurate.

The Atheist Asks

Just heard a short discussion about why there is evil and suffering in the world if God is good and loving. (Atheists favorite question; the one they think is a huge stumbling block for believers...) There was a complicated attempt at an answer, but I think it's utterly simple:

God did not create evil (and suffering), Man accepted it in order to be free.

It's so simple I guess it's hard for the over-educated to get their heads around.When everyone's free, shit happens. Sometimes BAD shit.

People who ask the question don't understand freedom—and are afraid of it!

To blame God for for the problem of evil and suffering is an infantile response to the wild, wonderful risks of freedom.

Updated Symbol of Government

 A Condom

It allows for inflation,
Halts production,
Destroys the next generation,
Protects a bunch of dicks,
And gives you a sense of security
While you're actually being screwed!

Damn, it just doesn't get more accurate than that!

No-One Listened

I missed this when it was written, but I found it today. It is a powerful indictment of the Obamas by Mychal Massie.

Quote of the Day

"The experiment of electing an un-vetted foreign born halfrican communist, specifically groomed, trained and educated to agitate and otherwise wreak havoc on a country he was raised to loathe has finally borne the only fruit that it can."  - steveintampa

Nicely said about Tuesday's election.
