Christians are vilified in America by the Left because they are not Buddhists. Compared to the history of any and all Marxists flag wavers verses the actual (non revisionist) history of Western Culture, Christians make Buddhists look like Mr. Dirty Harry. “Let me make myself clear, I don’t want to do this thing (Forced Starvation of 7 million Ukrainians), I have to for the ‘Greater Good.’”

For a couple of years I have heard things in the realm of “It’s all gonna burn,” “Let the country fail to the point that we reset,” and similar to “Its so bad that only a massive back to zero event can save us.”
To borrow Matt’s phrasing, “hate that shit.”
The awful part is there is certain degree of logic to it all. I guess to most functional Americans, they understand in the back of their mind that while there would be wide spread and largely random death. proportionately speaking, those that had previously understood the very things that made this country on a human/specie level would be far more likely to survive. And rebuild.
But unlike our thoughtless Liberal counterparts, its recognized that such a series of related thought only exists in a bubble. That will not happen because it can not happen. Should the S H T F on that scale, there would be obvious outside “pressure’s” looking to fill the void of our once great strength.
So lets take that desperate and nihilistic energy and put it to work now so we don’t have to go down that road, shall we?

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”
NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;– for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;– for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;– and, in general, for the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;– to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

The subjugation of the American People by “the Left” is under the banner of Coercive Paternalism. It would appear that the “establishment” Republicans are capable of the same thing as they withhold their “love” and support of Tea Party/functional Conservatives in elections for office. Republicans are no more or less willing to subjugate grass root leaders than Leftists are of Constitutionalists (et al) as a whole.

Sooooo those that are on the front lines of dictating/instructing the masses what is available in this new age of “health care” (as opposed to those that dictate what increasingly finite choices the masses are allowed to get) are chosen deliberately based on the notion that the “the system” has unfairly condemned them. Therefore the “socially condemned” with their arrest record et al (according to these Socially Justice minded employers) now have power over the health, fundamentally vital information, and well being of every day Americans
“Government” did this because it was “good.”
And at the same time, those that prove that they do not support socialized medicine, and All-That-Comes-With-It should be treated as though they have a prior record of being anti social and criminal by the taxing agents of “the People”.
Anything remotely attached to “Politics” will tell you that genuine compassion is an intolerable weakness. Therefore, state sanctioned “tolerance” must be done deliberately knowing the possible full consequence of such an action. Deliberately knowing the full consequence of such action.
No matter the face they try to paint on, this strain of Marxism, this Democratic Liberal Socialism is by the very pretense of their activity worse then Lenin, Mao, and Stalin. The reason why they are worse is not because of their pretense of greater empathy and morality. But because this pretense of “civility” and “empathy” and “tolerance” and “understanding” and (vomit)”humanism” will by definition of its Authoritarian Marxist being result in the same mass destruction of humanity as Mao, Stalin, and Pol Pot.
By the very definition of Humanity, the results will be the same. These NeoComms will just get better ratings by the media/history books so long as they own them, that’s all.

It becomes more and more clear the that the question of what gives them the right to take over 1/6th of the American economy that literally involves itself in maters of life and death where it has no experience and no greater ability to decide such maters than already exists, should be moved now to asking by what right do they claim to outright endanger 1/6th of the American economy that involves itself thusly and collapses it into their caring hands. Or to put it another way, what proves their claim of superior stewardship over all medical healthcare (not insurance, healthcare) that justifies their outright endangering that same healthcare just to prove that superiority.
anyone care to take a stab at that one?

So let me gets this straight. So far Obama and his kind has negated these ”Fundamental” laws:
Laws of Nature that dictate that natural gender roles, heterosexuality, and Natural Marriage are not only normal and healthy but proven vital and optimal to the cultural health of the species en masse do not exist when compared to the perfection of Liberal “Equality.”
The hard fought and won (by the entire history of the Western World) Writs of Habeas Corpus do not apply on any scale when its to their ends.
Freedom of Assembly, Self-Defense, Religion, protection from Unlawful Searches and Seizures, and Freedom of Speech have all been effectively whittled down to allowable privileges so long as they support the Liberal Collective via the Supreme Court, School Boards, the ALCU, DOD/NSA/DOJ etc., Corporate terms of employability, State Laws, the S.OS. Project, threat of Islamic backlash if we dare infringe on their perception of religious supremacy, and all around nuanced feelings of the increasingly fragile public. Having forced the politicalization of every facet of government is one thing. Having forced the politicalization of every important facet of everyday life such that company’s schools and crosswalks become tools of the state is nothing short of Communism, regardless of degree.
Natural Law of The Right to keep and bear arms to help insure the Government of We the People by We the People and for We the People does not become oppressive (In the New Hampshire Constitution called “The Right of Revolution”) must be met with ever increasing amounts of punishment is beyond question.
And now three key elements of Magna Carta are on the Marxists cutting room floor. The first fractures of “Fundamental” law have been committed in small nearly unnoticeable pieces before, oh, midwinter of 2009 but has been happening in notably and definably ever larger chunks since. That Law being simply the Rule of Law. A basic principle that states that even the Law Makers and the Law Enforcers are bound by the Law. Nope, the ancient battle of the public verses the (always self appointing) ruling class is nearly back to feudal levels. Secondly, that people should not be subject to Arbitrary enforcement of financial and legal rules of law. This hallmark of all authoritarian/fascistic rule is facilitated by clever little pieces of evil that make the law (particularly in the form of “regulations”) ever increasing and nuanced. So much so, that anyone can be guilty of something at anytime so the State can legally fall on you with the entirety of its weight whenever it (or any of its self centered self important vessels) wants. Please and thank you to remind all of you that this applies in the inverse as well, where those that commit crimes can equally go unpunished (even rewarded) when those in power see fit. A body and culture of Law the protects its citizenry from arbitrary application of the law is just another hard fought and won element of modern Western Civilization by hundreds upon thousands of generations of mankind just can not be considered when compared to Liberal notions of ”what the world should be.” And last but not least, the legendary gift of Magna Carta, the Power of the Purse. That simple and effective means to contain the potentials of rampant “Executive Power” has now been given up by the U.S. Congress and joyfully accepted by El Presidente himself with the current language of the Continuing Resolution. Which by the way also defies the black letter law of the enumerated powers within the U.S. Constitution that they all ”swore to faithfully uphold.”
Fanfare applause and cheers to the new mighty Rulers of Mankind. Such is their long deserved entitled role that they have been searching for thousands of generations. After all, its their destiny to Rule. We are all part of Their Sovereignty, Their Moral Superiority Demands we capitulate our delusions of self determination. Just ask them, they’d be proud to explain to you their Right of Coercive Paternalism.
Good night, and good luck

After seeing Number One Sons post, I literally can not contain my self. I am actually more angry on this stupid nothing little video than I am about the pathetic “coverage” of the “government shutdown.”
I am &@#!!* pissed about this video. GrrrrARGH ARGHHARGHARGH.
If there is EVER a perfect illustration of how Liberals no matter the intent are Fascists! this is one. Of the many things that we here at SOE are trying to speak on is how Liberals desperately try to achieve the exact same ends of Stalin et al but “nicely.” Everyone Knows BUT THEM that the means of how to achieve that end DEMANDS in the end the same degree of force that they used!!
The EPA sends this out, to inform the public. Oh isn’t that nice. After a while on this issue they will Nudge the public with a hint of possible consequence if they no not comply. Then the push with moderate believability of menial coercion, then the shove with public displays of demonstrable force. After all, you’re hurting “those under 18 years of age, and the elderly, and those with asthma.” And if its one thing the Left is joyful about, its punishing those that don’t care for “what’s best for everyone.”
Uatu just read over my shoulder. Sometimes I really ….errggGGH that guy. ok, let me restate. The EPA has shown evidence to its endgame, to which I not only say but DELCARE this is demonstrable of a distinction of Government/Human Mentalities…..To an American, Burn Dry Wood because its more economical/efficient all around. Period, end of story. But in Marxist land, if you don’t show proof that you used your “government sanctioned” hydrometer that you tested your wood then you have committed a crime against XYZ people. To which if you do not show evidence of being an “upstanding supporter of the ‘The Party’” you will be punished.

Ah yes, this little vignette is yet another excellent example of Paternally Coercive speak. How to see “you are too stupid to know how to do things for yourself without hurting yourself.” Now “yourself” is a word here that transitions nicely from the nature of the ”Paternally Coercive” to the nature of Collectivism itself. By that I do mean one choice phrase toward the end that is set up nicely in the very beginning. I will leave it up to you to find each.
oh! Its like an Easter Egg hunt on a White House Lawn with an extra contingent of men to disallow the public from entering it during a “government shutdown.”
Actually this tiny little nothing snippet of the EPA is quite good at another birthright/foundation stone of Progressivism, a decidedly deliberate exploitation of the publics good nature in the name of political control of all that human.

It must be made clear to anyone that has not learned to speak Progressive Marxists. The word choice and attitudes by Liberals (the real radicals) revolving around both the potential suspension of the funding for Obamacare and now the debt limit potential increase are perfect illustrations of how they view the nature and role of government. To them, government must be the embodiment of all human virtues and aspirations. To them only government and proper political bodies have the moral authority to control humanity and the world. That is why horror must be seen in anything that challenges governments ability to effect control over all of us. That is why “we”, you know “ the people”, must be punished when we don’t eliminate the enemies of Liberal government. Its for our own good you see. They proudly wield the sword of Coercive Paternalism.

with so much already said, we are putting up ten things not said (some taken from our own SOE posts).
If “Moderates” inhabit the majority of the rebel insurgency, and they used chemical weapons a couple of months ago, what does that say about “moderates”
If in fact “moderates” fled from the rebel forces because of the chemical attacks, isn’t this a perfect parallel to how Progressives push out regular Americans from every environment they themselves want to own through a culture they create incrementally in work place environments (I.R.S., Churches, the Environmental movement, State dept, DOJ, the Military, and explicitly the entire Educational system)
Kerry said we need to destroy/get these WMD’s so that they don’t fall into the wrong hands of radical elements. There is evidence that AlQaeda et al have had these for over a year already, and used them. These are not Chronoton missles sir.
Kerry is a perfect ambassador for the disease of the Liberal mentality. So completely self absorbed in their “good intent” they can not conceive that any of their actions could possibly have effects outside of what they intend.
We are told from divergent points of view that we need to do this to retain any good standing as a military and moral power in the world. We are told that we needed to kill people (admittedly arbitrarily) to “save face.”
Is the Noble committee still convinced of his greatness?
No virtue or moral code was to be upheld or acted on until Kerry’s UnIntended Statesmanship. Whoops.
Assad knows whether or not he used chemical weapons. If in fact he did not in this or other similar occasions, and Americans (coalition or not) used military force on Syrian soil/interests, then Syria has every right to retaliate.
The world does not bow to your intentions Libs (aka NeoComm’s). Regardless of intent, a missle strike is an act of war.
1400 is a “crime” only to those that immerse themselves in the “Hate” Crime mentality. Only those that believe in the criminalization of emotional content see (as many as) 1400 deaths by chemical weapons to be a danger to the world, but over 100,000 deaths are acceptable. Despite their proximity, murder is murder first, the vehicle of murder is second.

It occurs to me that the Fed is knowingly and deliberately falsely inflating the stock market and therefore American businesses. The money is not real, therefore the gains are not real. Should it come to pass that there is a large scale shock to the financial system, it is at least possible that the Fed, being a bank, might call the loans on these stocks and businesses. Between this kind of bank lean, and the very core of the Dodd/Frank bill that openly declares the Federal Government may now legally annex businesses outright, it is at least possible that the vary purpose of the Fed’s policies is to “ease” capitalism straight into a NeoComm government.
Again, the definition of Progressivism is the systematic undermining, distressing, and poisoning of otherwise healthy aspects of humanity to collapse them into political influence and control.

As is a frequent theme to this audience and every ear that gives me an opportunity, one of the burdens of modern Americans who care about America is to learn how Progressive’s (aka Liberal Fascists/Marxists/Communionists etc) speak. How through something as simple as word choice and sentence structure Progressive’s have, by their own admission, gained a myriad of positions of power in America by “stealth and deception”. Once in a while a bolt of understanding clears the sky of my minds daily activities about who these people are how they do things. Just a minute ago I realized that the phrase “Speaking truth to Power” is a one that they hold true and dear. Which by itself is increduluous and worthy of essay, tale, and song. For the moment just a few sentences will do. ”Speaking truth to Power” must not be allowed to occur when its Their Power or Their “truth”. ”Speaking Truth to Power” can not be tolerated unless it increases the likelihood of their access to ever more Power. Sounds remarkably simple, and it is accepted just as simply by every day Americans without a hint of recognition of whats really happening.

So I am wondering if the Nobel Committee that hands out these little trinkets that formerly hand value called Peace Prizes, are still convinced that Obama is working towards their aspirations of World Peace. Or, is it likely that Obama is just another suit working toward systems of world wide political control where regular military invention is a necessity to that end.

We are told, that we the people can not be trusted with the powers given to us by God and nature, particularly firearms, because “just one person can do so much harm”. That’s one thing, this is another thing. The larger governments get, even in elective democracies, the proportion of appointed to elected jobs gets geometrically larger. The number of elected positions rarely increases but the bureaucracy under it gets disproportionally larger with ever increasing amounts of unaccountability. The point is this, the larger government gets it inevitably allows room for a handful of (maybe even just one or two) “rogues” to dramatically affect larger numbers of people.
Power in the hands of the individuals that make up the public is no different in terms of potential abuse then power in the hands of individuals in government. To pretend that somehow people appointed in government are somehow inherently “better” is laughable. Combine that with the fact that there is a vastly disproportional amount of law that directly controls the populace compared to the number of laws that directly effect the law makers and enforcers, than it is also inevitable that there will grow a culture within political circles at odds with the culture of the society that it supposed to represent. In authoritarian systems of all kinds, that fine. In American, it most assuredly is not.

Let me explain. (side note: see MSM? I can make outrageous nonsense headlines too!)
So I recently read an article about how yet another Hollywood elite is happily expecting a child with her boyfriend. Hooray. But what is up with this trend of not marrying before you get pregnant? Accidents aside, there are many who feel that getting married is just not important in creating a family. On the surface, this is true. Marriage, after all, is a ritual (not a right!) that binds a man and a woman together in the eyes of God and society. But truth be told, I’m sure God cares naught for a piece of paper that says “these two are together.” I was bonded with my mate long before he became my husband (no children mind you). So then, what is the fuss about getting married before having babies?
Well we must look past the surface to see the underlying thoughts behind why they think it is perfectly fine to have babies before being married. I believe it comes from the devaluing of human life.
See, liberals have long held the belief that humans irredeemably suck and there are far too many of us. That is where your tree-hugging, EPA worshipping, “save the purple bellied gnat!” crowd comes from. Also the “you’re too stupid to live, govt knows what’s best” groupies. They don’t like people, no matter how many times they insist everyone’s beautiful and special, deep down there seems to be a festering hatred of anything resembling humanity. It bubbles out in the form of legalizing any and all abortion, disallowing any form of self accountability, and that’s right, not giving a rat’s ass about being married before having children. After all, what is a baby? just a pile of carbon and spittle that makes noises. Pretty easy to commit my life to that. But legally attaching myself to another adult WHOA HOLD ON NOW.
I GOTTA THINK ABOUT THAT.
That’s a lifetime of commitment! What if he’s just not the one for me? Yeah, baby whatevs, but what about MY needs? MY desires?
I just don’t understand, why is it so easy to welcome a child that completely depends on you, but the thought of declaring another person…out loud… as their legal partner just makes them want to recoil in disgust.
Actually I’m getting off track, the point is because of this base feeling that humans suck there is a constant devaluing of human life. They don’t value what they don’t like (to do otherwise would be an exercize in character–can’t have that either!) To you or me, a baby is a blessed thing, a gift from God, an unbelievable miracle. To them, oh, another little human to add to the overpopulation…how cute…….it really is no wonder why they advocate abortions. Sure, they love and protect their child, declare how beautiful everything they do is, give them the best like any doting parent, just don’t ask them to get married. That’s a big step, don’t wanna rush.

The Star Trek Universe is a made up fantasy, thats a given. Part of good story telling is that a fable has enough real elements to give fantasy a foot hold to give the parts that are make believe an aire of “the possible”. Fine, thats all fine and dandy. It is what it is. However I did notice a little detail about the Roddenburian Universe that escaped me until just now. This universe is decidedly a uptopic one, call it what it is. The totality of this universe is centered in Star Fleet and the Federation. While the Federation appears to function similar to America’s Federated states, Star Fleet is most assuredly a Military. While its goal claims to be to “Seek” and “Explore”, its being is militaristic force and organization. Truth be told, that is also fine. However, given the nature of Progressive/Liberal Facist/Communist endevours, it is with considerable note that there appears to be a union of abject authoritarianism and supposed superior morality. One can not have Utopic grand visions so deliberately embodied in a decidely militaristic body without requiring an audience (that actually reads history rather than trying to recreate it in their own image) to make direct parallels to every totalitarian (and evil) endevour in human history.
After having heard so many Obamaites speak even just a hairs breathe of honest speak in the last few years, they obviously believe in the fantasy that Utopic visions of humanity can be both Abjectly Authoritarism and still be squishy hopeful dream laden lands of ever prosperous unicorn and rainbows. Surely an Army is required to conquer Human Nature.

I keep telling people that you need to learn how to speak Progressive because they themselves are pathological liars…..
Progressives want effective amnesty for illegal aliens in America. They want it to secure power forever by dramatically shifting the voting populace into their favor. But, there is more going on here. Amnesty is only one element in a much larger context of gaining abject control, which is the endgame for all Marxists of any flavor. Abject control wears such phrases as ”civilian defense corps that are as equally financed as the entire military.” What else do they say? They also say that “all Americans are illegal immigrants.” More so, that its wholly inapropriate that anyone gets citizenhip by birthright, that instead “people need to be taught what citizenship means and how to earn it”, educated in how they earn theres on an ongoing basis. All these notions are not only threads of long standing Marxists doctrine but phrases directly uttered aloud about the great Marxist utopia that has come out of Obama and his kin both elected and appointed just in the last couple of years. I believe that is it not just possible but probable that these people, regardless of who is at the top, are going to try to pass legislation in matters of American citizenship that has within those laws little elements that appear odd but benign but in fact are different cornerstones of their new great society. I believe this because they have been doing this for a hundred damn years. Its amazing what you learn when you are more interested in reading history then trying to recreate it in your own image. When Progressives put together their notions of ”comprehensive immigration reform” there will be elements of language and structure to policy that seem out of place yet benign but will in fact be made to link up with other seemingly benign threads of legislation to bring “all Americans new or old (vis-a-vis status of citizenship since the very beginning of European colonization) into the light”. That “Light” will be comprehensive reform of citizenship itself. Of who is allowed to have anything and allowed to do whatever based on their willingness to fall in line with Party Doctrine. They will decide a “path of citizenship” that will do nothing less than to decide who has access to gaining the system, period. The ability to gain the system is the totality of all Liberal Marxists concern.

Time and time again humans and human history proves that when decent people act decently, there is no greater engine of productivity that enhances the physical and internal well being of humans and humanity more than Capitalism. So role up your sleeves, find that sweet spot that says “I am willing to take on Lifes hardships swinging my fists to my dieing breath and only then will I except every bit of pain and hurt this world has because I know it will not stop my fists from swinging. And there where human flesh meets human spirit will I also know how to do all that and still be a decent person to my self, my family, and my neighbor through exercised strength of character that remains despite genuine hardships. A strength of Character that grows every time it exceeds the hurt of this world.

First the prologue:
Time and again most every modern Liberal teaches us that their notions of morality are highly….adaptive. By adaptive I do mean that they regularly reprioritize or shift moral hierarchies in such as way as to achieve an end that belie real conviction of those morals. By end it could be either an actual physical effect, but far for often an end for Liberals is the appearance of virtue that continues their access to power and influence. This is because Liberalism has no principles that guide morals, this is because real principles inately demand conviction and the drawing of lines. Since the attainment of power and positions of perception and influence are the guiding stars of Liberals, aka all things political, morals and principles must always bend to the moments need to retain or gain power and positions of influence. The pursuit of politics is necessarily at the expense of principles and morality, and therein is the enemy of all free people whose freedom is directly necessary (and proportional) to the real world exercises of morality and virtue.
Thats the skinny, and Americans do have an inherent understanding of this very well, far more than in most other countries. One could say that holding this truth to be self evident in a populace would make them “exceptional.”
So furthering proof of Liberals dysphoric relationship with virtue and morality is El Presidente’s traveling with family members of the Sandy Hook day of horror. They are traveling with the President and going to fund raisers, stump speeches, and Congressional meetings to advocate the advancement of further more restrictions on various guns to the public. However, once upon a time in America, neither would a sitting President do this, nor would a large part of the public not immediately recognize the fullness of this situation and call him and them out as naked and shameful hucksters. What has changed is not the nature of politics being what it is, but in how the American public has been so drenched in emotional exploitation by politicians that we do not even recognize it when its happening. I will explain. I do believe that once upon a time the average American was much more of a critical thinker in their everyday lives. If nowadays we did engage in critical thinking more, there would be a genuine public outcry of resent toward the President for playing politics with peoples personal tragedy. The reason for this deserved public anger is found if we peel through the layers of what it means when the President did this public tour of grief coupled with the requisite attention to principles that are in play. Lets peel through the layers step by step. The President has family members directly affected by the horrible events that day going around because he knows that they can have sway over our thinking because of the deep emotions within that event. We are to image the pain and see the blood in our minds eye of those killed that day through them that loved them the most. Because their direct connection to that awful event is exceedingly rare, we are supposed to hold their experience in a kind of pure/unique light. In conjunction with all due emotional empathy to such a tragedy, we are supposed to willingly suspend or even give up our own views as they are incomplete or ignorant when compared to theirs. The very frame of this picture is that these are people with a unique vantage point. In essence, that is the principle. The principle of making an informed decision about matters of fundamental importance makes room for giving weight to those with greater experience to a thing than you yourself have. Now that we have identified the principle, lets put the layers back together. If those directly affected by that terrible event are given inherent weight in the conversation of gun rights, that weight preceeds their opinion of what to do about it. Its the tragedy that gives them weight, not their opinions about it. Within the course of emotionally identifying with those that suffered those losses, should we pick and choose whom we feel for based on how they react to that event, is to pick and choose who really suffered any loss at all. If anyone is to give these people extra weight in the conversation, then that principle demands that they all have weight, not just the ones that say one side or the other on a singular piece of legislation. If the President, his Cabinet, his various peoples, or the media et al gave weight to what ALL these people had to say, there would be merit in the attention. However, to pick and choose who should get recognized for their tremendous loss because of their agreement with your long since held before there was a Sandy Hook tragedy political goals is dishonest, immoral, and disrespectful for those families, the slain, and the public at large with such blatant exploition. The media and the President deserve contempt for their grave standing because that is in fact what they did.

Sometimes it takes a direct and personal experience to solidify so much conjecture and opinion of “them.” Well here at the Sons, we got just that. One of the enticements that our domains server host put out there to get our business was that with your domain you can get coupons for free advertising with Yahoo’s Bing and Googles Adwords. These are platforms for generating links to our site when people do searches that involve key words like “teaparty shirts” and “conservative clothes” as part of Googles and Yahoo search engines. So diving into this arena for the first time, I took to the time to figure out how all this worked and with the coupons gave it a shot. Even with the learning curve taken into account, these search engines ads were not generating the attention we needed to make them cost effective. So at first I suspended the advertising a couple of months ago, and today I went to cancel the accounts altogether. Here is the gateway to realizing that the stories of the potential of these companies evil has genuine merit. After spending more than an hour trying to find the account cancelation link through both of these sites, in fustration I called them. There response to “I want this account and all my personal and (more importantly) financial information that you have deleted and the account canceled” was “we can’t do that.” I am sorry HAL, “cancel my account and delete my information,” “you can end the advertising campaign but you can’t delete your account” said Chuck. So I demanded that I speak to their supervisor because some person in that massive company must have the intelligence to know how to click the damn delete button. To which they responded with “they are just going to tell you the same thing, that we can’t cancel your account. Someone will get back to you between 1 and 3 days.”
I have been trying to curb my swearing, but just plain wow. Ain’t no way thats going to happen on this one. So both my personal financial information is being held hostage, but this fledgling companies financial information is being deliberately withheld…..and why…? No really, why? Why must this global internet company claim to have a right to my and this companies financial information such that they can have access to it at any time. And how pray tell did this never come up before in public, I can’t be the only person in the world to have tried Bing and Adwords and went to cancel it. So my choices right now for my own financial info and the information for this little company is to let it go and let them own access to my info along with the inherent vulnerability to identity theft and deliberate sabotage. Yes, sabotage is the potential since they have proven themselves to be a decided Leftists Progressive enterprise and like all other Leftist prove that they are wholly amoral and covet power above all other virtues and moralities. My other choice of what to do right now is that I can sue them, which I can’t as I have no money to do so, or lastly I have to change all of my and this companies accounts so as to render those banking accounts void. Then go to each of the dozens upon dozens of companies this company has accounts with, who by the way do not genuinely violate our trust and respect. I am sending an email entailing these details to every person on my personal yahoo account and then canceling it. Its one thing to suffer their blatent Liberalism with ad after ad and pathetic attempts at news stories day after day, its another thing to casually ignore privacy laws, established economic practices, oh and little thing called the F”ing Constitution!! Oh, if they let me cancel my free email account that is.

I will paraphrase and or reinterate and or repeat on the words of Senator Ted Cruz’s CPAC speech, With Enumerated Powers comes Enumerated Trust. Within the American government as decided by the American Constitution as defined by the American Character there is a single measure of worth. Genuine Worth is not defined by the systemic problem of the modern day high school/American Idol popularity contest approach to the election of candidates that plagues our current voting mentality. Worth is not defined by the untethered asperations of some nor by untethered demonizations of others. Only those that are anchored in both a fierce and respectful manner of their position, their Enumerated Position, begin to have value. Their Enumerated Position trumps all other affectations and dreams. Grand tales of evil and hope have no place in the criteria of qualifications of any elected office.
As a member of the American public I see a deep seated need to change how we view government and more importantly government officials. I see a massive and desperate need to change how we as a voting public see elections and candidates and challenge ourselves to view them less like a high school popularity contest and more like hiring for a job with defined (again enumerated) responsibilities and limitations.

so my question is, what do the coal miners have to say about that?
Its an oddity that many Americans see unions in their minds eye back light with the role they played in coal mines and the vicous treatment of coal miners. The pathetic and noble miners made chattle by the greedy mine owners then championed by infant Unions, saving their lives and thier humanity. We are told that the world will inevitably follow the chinese model of ”noble state capitalism” and its requisite totalitarianism because of its inherent superiority. Not only that, but the western world is being deliberately sabotaged to fall apart Into that chinese model. You know, that country where most chinese don’t even know their own history of the totality of Maoism. So my question is, how do coal miners feel about America being reconceived into a chinese model where unions are illegal and coal mine accidents kill hundreds and thousands at a time and or annually.
