Nothing, That’s What.

I’m a Christian, and I can’t eat candy because it’s poison and I have bad teeth besides.

My halloween plans include letting my sandwich settle a little in my stomach, and going back to bed because I didn’t sleep well last night. Our porch light will be off, as usual, and street-facing curtains will be drawn. No candy.

Go teach your children to beg for hand-outs at somebody else’s house, you pagan!

San Francisco Bay Bridge Shut Down. Again. Indefinitely.

The Bay Bridge got a boo-boo and a band-aid was put on it.

The band-aid fell off again last week, and they’re not sure how long it will take to fix.

You know, maybe this would never have happened if the parts for the bridge were not MADE IN CHINA* by people turning out work which was rejected at a rate of 65%. Excuse me.

Please pardon me for noticing. I shall go flog myself anon for being hateful, in accordance with the new hate crimes act, which penalizes right thinking.

::Yoo bye Chinese bridge part! Verry good kworrity! You like! You buy, you like!::

More Good News On "Healthcare" Bill!

No, not good for you, silly! Good for special interests with Democrats in their pockets, and the International Socialist Movement.

It was just over 1,000 pages last time it was rejected by the Senate due to overwhelming public outcry.
Now it’s 10 pages shy of 2,000 pages, and let me tell you that’s not an extra 900 pages of Goodness For You.

The Fair Tax proposal, by the way, is under 200 pages, and would actually make life better for everyone in the country and return power to the People.

Matthew Sheppard Hate Crimes Prevention Act Non-Hate Disclaimer

This is a supplement to the regular, annual, VFD disclaimer. This would be unnecessary, but somehow our President is a Constitutional Scholar who doesn’t know what the First Amendment is there for.

********

It was going nowhere until it was amended onto the Defense Appropriations bill, but the leftists finally managed to get the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act signed into law the other day.

This is a Very Bad Thing.

First, the people who murdered Shepard are both in prison until they die, even though this hate crimes law was not in effect when they killed him. They killed him and are being punished for it. Hate law not required, justice system clearly not broken.

Second, the killing of Shepard was not a hate crime. His murderer had been awake (high on meth) for a week, and beat Shepard in a drug-related rage. He admitted to having beaten even his best friends before, while coming down off a meth high, and he also beat another person that night (when the killers went to rob Shepard’s apartment). The whole story about Shepard being killed because he was queer is blatantly false and based ONLY on speculation, AND goes contrary to the testimony of the principals in the case.

The law was passed under false pretenses. Guess what happens when you start from a lie?

********

God told his prophet:
“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

God also said, and I challenge you to find ambiguity here, that buggery is a Very Bad Thing: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination . . .”

God considered it so severe an offense that he further said:
“. . . they shall surely be put to death . . . . *

Here are the easiest two examples to find, of why every Christian and Jew has an obligation not only to condemn homosexuality, but to condemn it publicly and even to the face of the sinner. Even if it hurts their feeeeeelings. God did not say anything about not hurting someone’s feeeelings when telling them they were in the wrong.

To restate more clearly: anyone who believes that the Bible is God’s word to the world, and believes in the moral code outlined in the Bible, is exercising a religious conviction against homosexuality, not committing a hate crime, when they say that buggery is wrong.

For the Congress of the United States to pass a law prohibiting hurting someone’s feeeeelings because that someone happens to be overly-sensitive to criticism of queers, therefore, is a blatant violation of the Constitutional prohibition that says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

It is also a prior restraint on speech which, aside from hurting someone’s feeeelings, is harmless. The Constitution also says:

“Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech . . . .”

There will be a very nasty legal case to arise, very soon, because of someone prosecuted under this new Act. That case has the potential to go all the way to the supreme Court, unless the defense is completely worthless. If there is any hope for the future of America at all, the relevant portions of the Act will be declared unconstitutional. It might also be held not applicable and the case dismissed. It might also be upheld as constitutional and the Revolution will draw that much nearer.

The grand experiment in human liberty *may* have just failed. We shall see if it is revived, or if we are now in the death throes of the Republic.

********

Nota bene: This law was the source of a minor controversy a few months ago, and the controversy prevented the passage of the Act. The problem is, it protects with federal guns people with devious sexual proclivities who act out on their impulses in public.

If a child molester’s sexual orientation is toward your daughter, who is 9 years old, and he does Very Bad Things to her, and you object, you are now a federal hate criminal. You have committed the ultimate civil sin of condemning someone else because of how they feeeeel. YOU are the one who goes to court to defend yourself, when you scream at your priest to leave your little boy alone.

If an exhibitionit’s sexual orientation is to flash his nakedness at your grown-up female eyes when you are walking through the park, and you hit him with your purse, YOU are the federal hate criminal. He has not committed indecent exposure, no, his now-protected sexual orientation requires that sort of thing.

This is not a joke. I wish it were. I can’t say we couldn’t see it coming.

I hope that our country can survive until the 2010 elections. I am increasingly unsure that it will.

*The Jewish legal code of the Old Testament is no longer binding upon God’s servants, having been replaced with the New Testament relationship between God and Christians. The MORAL code in the Old Testament was reinforced by the same Jesus who did away with the old legal code. We are no longer to kill queers for buggery. Jesus wants us to love the sinner, but still to hate the sin.

This article could have been considerably longer if we went into the difference between protecting people for inherent, immutable characteristics vs. protecting actions based on desires, but that will wait for another day.

Great Success Last Night!

I mentioned it was tamale-making night last night. I didn’t mention we had a Mexican-from-Mexico couple over to our house making the tamales with us my wife (I was watching the Zoo). I strapped on the G22 a little while after I came home, and it was hanging out OWB under my T-shirt for a few hours. Somewhere around 23:30 as I was saying it was time to go to bed, the wife of this couple made me (finally) and was surprised. She didn’t much like the idea of me having a gun @ home. I had to go to bed a little later than I was hoping to, but after a four-way conversation she finally came out and said it was a good thing for me to have a gun.

+1 more.

We Lose Huge, We Win Temporarily Small.

The effort is well underway to OUTLAW speech against islam and queers. In Europe and . . . drumroll . . . here, also. Will you stand for it? Will you at least send your Elected Heroes a frikken EMAIL?

Because the force of his will is not strong enough to overcome America’s collective common sense (drastically weakened though it is), The Obama was not able to get cap & tax passed in the US Senate before the upcoming Copenhagen climate conference. Have you ever seen a housecat, tossed in disgust out of someone’s lap, land on the floor, sit down, and procede to bathe itself, as if the whole action were the cat’s idea? Yeah, that’s what Obama is doing, saying the conference is not a “head of state affair” so he’s not going. More like, you couldn’t force your agenda through and the REAL major world polluters decline to attend. Can’t be seen as a naked tyrant just yet, eh BHO?

Aaaand one more Atlas Shrugs link for the threepers, ALSO something you didn’t get from the nightly shill media network news: Obama declares Janet Napolitano’s H1N1 Mexican “swine” flu a national emergency. That would be, the kind where we can roll out the troops and start rounding people up in concentration (death) camps, or giving mass injections of a vaccine full of poison against their will. Hint: CARRY YOUR GUNS PEOPLE! One commenter said they heard ALL flu will be reported as H1N1 because they just stopped testing for H1N1 specifically . . . astonishing if true, but it wouldn’t surprise me, and you can expect a huge spike in H1N1 and none of anything else this winter if it’s so.

One last note, and one you can actually do something concrete about: When you get the H1N1 vaccination, get it in an individual syringe package. The bulk pack contains thimerosal, the individual syringe-packaged doses do not.

Email Subject Lines.

Chances are approaching 100% that I don’t know you, and don’t recognize your email address.

I get a lot of spam emails.

Put these two together, and it means I have missed probably several of your valid comments or questions.

I got an email today with a username of somebody’s first name, and the subject line is a single word. I sent it straight to /dev/null. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 I will NEVER see an email that is not obviously NOT spam.

FYI.
