FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS: GRETCHEN CARLSON, “PERSECUTED”

Posted in FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS with tags , , , on 22/07/2014 by sarahbloch

In one of the most wealthy countries on Terra people are crying out about their oppression. A segment of the American population wants to send the world a dire warning that the early steps being taken now will lead to a massive shift in their rights and freedoms and likely will lead to a Holocaust style slaughter in the near future. All of this is because of their religion and social values. Some in this group say the horrors they have suffered can no longer be tolerated in any civilized country. What are the actions taken by these oppressors against this group? Are these people being forced to wear yellow crosses on their clothing? Are their book stores and bakeries being vandalized? Are their women being raped in the streets and their houses of worship desecrated and burnt to the ground?

No, no they aren’t because the group of people I am talking about are America conservative Christians. Over the past weekend a movie debuted in 736 theaters across America called, “Persecuted,” telling the story of an evangelist framed for the murder of a teenage girl and the government conspiracy to rid America of Christianity. That’s it. If you’ve read the last sentence you’ve seen the whole movie. The film stars Bruce Davison, Dean Stockwell, Fred Thompson and Gretchen Carlson. Yes, that Gretchen Carlson the Fox News host. Rumor has it that since shooting Stockwell is still showering trying to get the yuck of the poor plot off him.

The film grossed a whopping $851,391 over the weekend but that didn’t stop Christian Toto at Breitbart from writing an article touting the strong performance the movie had “in the Heartland.” Strong performance? The movie took in $1156.78 per theater which begs a serious question. If this is the type of fare conservatives say they want from Hollywood, why don’t they patronize these films? Toto says in his Breitbart.com post, “Another film eager to entertain right of center audiences also made noise over the weekend. Persecuted tells the story of an evangelist (James Remar) framed for murder, a plot tied to a warped alliance between faith and the government.”

Made noise? Well I guess a whimper is a noise. And the “strong in the heartland” comment? Toto explains that the movie outperformed new releases like “Sex Tape” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” in Cincinnati, Wichita, Philadelphia, Memphis, Columbus and Wilkes-Barre. I’m not a dempgrapher or a geography expert but since when were Wilkes-Barre and Philadelphia in the “heartland?”

So where exactly did Christian Toto get his theater data? Well this article posted at News9.com the digital arm of the Oklahoma City CBS affiliate, posted an article which quotes a PRNewswrire release from One Media LLC the film’s production company. What Toto left out was how universally panned the film was by just about every film critic. The New York Times, Hollywood Reporter and Variety all lambasted “Persecuted” with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 0% rating.

Here’s the trailer:

SARAH PALIN DROPS TO HER KNEES IN HOPES OF BECOMING “THE VIEW” CO-HOST

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, SARAH PALIN, THE VIEW with tags , , , , , on 08/07/2014 by sarahbloch

The never ending story of Sarah Palin’s lust for popularity and limelight continues as she hints at a desire to join the cast of the ABC morning talk show “The View.” In an article written in The Hollywood Reporter about the renewal of her Sportsman Channel reality show “Amazing America,” Palin offers her opinion of what the multiple Daytime Emmy Award winning show needs to revitalize itself after the departure of 75% of its cast:


THR:Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?

Palin:Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.

The American work ethic? Today’s politics are incorrigibly disastrous? Real-life groundedness? So what is Palin saying here exactly other than “the View” needs a conservative white woman to be folsky and home spun and of course represent conservatism for a larger audience? I fell on the floor nearly laughing at the thought that Palin could be a greater “voice of reason” than Barbara Walters has been for 17 season on “The View.”

There would be a part of me that would take a perverse pleasure in seeing Whoopi Goldberg paired with Rachel Maddow on one side of the table and Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin on the other. Can you imagine the debates? ABC can you imagine the ratings?!

VOX POPULI: A CONSERVATIVE LOOKS AT PALIN V CLINTON IN 2016

In my travels I hear quite a bit about low information voters. There seem to be quite a bit of people who become low information voters because once the boxes that appeal to them have been ticked, they cease to listen to anything that deviates from their beliefs. This can happen on both sides of the political divide in America today. I have seen this recently, meaning over the past six years more on the Right than the Left.

sarah-palin-big-gulp-cpac

A recent post at Breitbart.com can act as a clear illustration of this premise. Sarah Palin’s facebook post about celebrating Freedom and not Government was met with harsh criticism from the Left which provoked harsh responses from the Right. As much as this was expected, I was surprised when a commenter tried to compare and contrast the stands that Palin takes vice what he feels as a conservative what Obama/Clinton stand for politically:

2016 Presidential Election

Gov. Sarah Palin:
1. conservative
2. loving God
3. loving founding fathers
4. saving unborn babies
5. supporting traditional marriage, morality, responsibility
6. defender of U.S. Constitution
7. less government control and regulations and more individual’s freedom/liberty
8. low taxes/letting people keep more of what they earned
9. energy INDEPENDENT/drilling and fracking for more gas and oil to create jobs
10. reducing debts for future generations
11. cutting irresponsible spendings
12. free market capitalism/
no crony capitalism
13. no coporate welfare/foodstamps/bailouts
14. helping the helpless, not the clueless
15. no rewarding bad behaviors
16. SAVING America from bankruptcy
17. RESTORING America’s greatness
.

Obama/Clinton (2 faces of the same coin):
1. liberal/progressive
2. hating God
3. hating founding fathers
4. agreeing with China on killing unborn babies
5. supporting gay/lesbian (i.e. uncle/aunt and nephew/niece, 2 brothers,
2 sisters, …), immorality, irresponsiblity
5. supporting immorality, irresponsiblity, gay/lesbian marriage between 2
individuals (i.e. a man and a woman, 2 men, 2 women, uncle/aunt and nephew/niece,
2 brothers, 2 sisters, …)
6. attacker of U.S. Constitution
7. more government control/regulations and less individual’s freedom/liberty
8. high taxes/ripping off people
9. energy dependent/man caused global warming or climate chaos
10. more debts for future generations
11. more irresponsible spendings
12. socialism/
communism/
crony capitalism
13. more coporate welfare/foodstamps/bailouts
14. getting the clueless/useful idiots become addicted to free stuffs/entitlement programs
15. rewarding bad behaviors/illegal immigrants (undocumented democrats),
DESERTER/TRAITOR Bowe Bergdahl, … etc.
16. BANKRUPTING America
17. TRANSFORMING America into some socialist utopia

For the purpose of clarity I feel it is my duty to point out the fallacies and misinformation in this list. The poster has clearly placed his/her own beliefs into what he feels a proper candidate for President should hold as values when in fact none of these are true factors in what makes someone suitable to hold the highest elected office in America. Once again, a conservative is trying to use “shaming” and the fear of ostracism by not being accepted by a group he feels is the majority to elevate an unqualified person to a state of qualification.

1. Conservative v Liberal/Progressive

Ms Palin is a conservative but in opinion she is more of TEA Party conservative than an establishment one. Ms Clinton is a pragmatist who has a more centrist political view that most political scientists would call “progressive.”

2. loving God v. hating God

I would begin with the question which God? Or even better whose God? The commenter being a conservative clearly means the Christian God as to the bulk of American conservatives this is one true god. Unfortunately for conservatives, there is no religious test for being President of the United States. Having a president that shares their religious beliefs and values might give those voters on the right a warm fuzzy but it isn’t a constitutional requirement. Equally, I see no proof from Ms Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State that she hates the Christian God or that President Obama hates the Christian God. These people are politicians not students at a theological school running for recording secretary. Religion does not matter in this debate because people can have no religion and be ethical moral people and people who wear their religion on their chests can act in terribly immoral and unethical ways.

3. Loving the founding fathers v hating the founding fathers.

I have a very big problem with the use of the word hate here but it does serve a purpose. The reference to the founding fathers of America is a dog whistle of code of white male conservatives. It means Hillary is bringing feminine power that will make white conservative men obeisant to her authority; an authority that terrifies men who have had it their way since the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Second it is more code to the disrespect white conservative men feel at having to acknowledge a person of color as their Chief Executive. As much as it causes eye rolling on the Right the bigotry on the Right regarding America’s first black president has been a torrent of disrespect as has never been seen in American politics. Of course, to say this it becomes clear that Palin as a candidate will bow to male hegemony and respect and protect white male conservative unearned privilege.

4. saving unborn babies v agreeing with China on killing unborn babies

As I have written many times the abortion debate is less about sex and more about demographics. For decades the fear that their would become a balance between the majority white American population and the minority population has fueled the anti-abortion movement. Sure there are a small percentage of people from the minority camp that see this as a moral issue but the bulk of the anti-abortion power brokers are in this fight not for God but for votes. If the numbers of white women in the south and Midwest having abortions dwindled to near zero many of the people who pour billions into the anti-abortion crusade would spent their political capital elsewhere. It really doesn’t matter what a President palin thinks about unborn babies what really matters is that Roe v Wade is settled case law.

5. Supporting traditional marriage, morality and responsibility v supporting gay/lesbian (i.e. uncle/aunt and nephew/niece, 2 brothers,
2 sisters, …), immorality, irresponsiblity [sic] supporting immorality, irresponsiblity [sic], gay/lesbian marriage between 2 individuals (i.e. a man and a woman, 2 men, 2 women, uncle/aunt and nephew/niece, 2 brothers, 2 sisters, …)

Since I don’t have the time nor the desire to write a multichapter several hundred page work of non fiction on this topic I will distill my comments to a few sentences. Traditional marriage one hundred years ago, in 1914, meant in several states that only a man and a woman of the same race could marry and that the woman had no property rights within that marriage. Just over fifty years later traditional marriage had changed to allow men and women of different races to marry, something that would have caused a firestorm of controversy in 1914 much like the controversy in America surrounding same sex marriage in 2014. The comment attempts, poorly, to conflate two men or two women marrying with incest which is illegal in every state in the Union. Despite a federal ruling, 12 states still have anti-sodomy laws on the books making sex between those of the same gender illegal and oral and anal sex among married couples illegal as well. I don’t know of a single advocate for same sex marriage who wants siblings to be able to marry each other or parents to be able to marry children. This line of thinking is horribly fallacious.

6. Defender of the Constitution v attacker of the COnstitution

Yet another code word canard for “in support of white privilege v attacker of white privilege.”

7. less government control and regulations and more individual’s freedom/liberty v more government control/regulations and less individual’s freedom/liberty

There is little Sarah Palin can do to make America more individually free. In reality one of the things conservatives understand the least is that of the rules one has to follow on a daily basis in America local and state laws come into play far more than federal regulations. I believe this commenter is making an appeal here against ObamaCare, poorly, and a veiled reference to Progressives wanting to take guns away from the American people.

8. low taxes/letting people keep more of what they earned v high taxes/ripping off people

I have always liked the argument of allowing people who want to pay no taxes to have to put a coin in their toilet to flush it each time and then see how they feel about taxation. None of these conservatives seem to be able to twig to the notion that it isn’t the taxes it’s the wages. Raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and one would see a renaissance in the American economy that might hold until the early decades of the 22nd century according to our lead economist Carlton Pryor. The only people being ripped off in America are those who have lost middle class status, the truly disabled and those working 40 hours a week for minimum wage being called “moochers” by the Right.

9. energy INDEPENDENT/drilling and fracking for more gas and oil to create jobs v energy dependent/man caused global warming or climate chaos

There is a cancer in the minds of conservatives that America would be energy independent if they could just control two branches of the government. That is one of the greatest economic and political lies ever told. Conservatives like the commenter still believe that if America drills for its own oil they could produce the 22 million bbl a day they need to keep the freedom of cars and personal transportation which is at the heart of their belief about freedom. Many petroleum scientists feel that close to half of the oil in the ground on Terra has been removed. The Rham Institute for Resource Studies estimates that by 2020 45% of the oil will have been pumped and by 2050 that number will be 55%. It would seem prident that in the coming decades America would want to keep some of its own oil in the ground. However, the drilling on government land, in Alasaka’s ANWR would not result in lower prices because the market sets the price based on supply. Over supply by America would be met with reduced production by OPEC. According to an April 2014 report of American oil resources 43% of oil was locked in federal lands and the total oil reserves on and offshore were 67.41 billion bbl. At current usage rates this would last 8.7 years. I’m agnostic on global warming or climate change; I’ll leave that debate to climate scientists.

10. reducing debts for future generations v more debts for future generations

Where were these cries during the Reagan and Bush II years?

11. cutting irresponsible spendings [sic] v more irresponsible spendings [sic]

I don’t know what irresponsible spending Obama has done that has harmed the US economy. Palin has had no experience since resigning as Alaska Governor so she doesn’t have any federal budgetary experience. Per Carlton Pryor, Lead Economist TED-OG, “[She] was a supporter of the war in Iraq which was a waste of $3 trillion which would have nearly fully reversed the Great Recession by paying $32,000 to every working American over the age of 16. This would have been a more prudent measure had the Great Recession been properly foreseen.”

12. free market capitalism/no crony capitalism v socialism

This is another red herring. America is a curious economic admixture of socialism [Social Security, Medicaid] and capitalism [tax breaks for oil companies and off shore accounts for corporate persons]. I can only imagine this is a feaful swipe at Obama/Clinton and knowing that if HRC is elected single payer will come to pass by the end of her first term.

13. no coporate [sic] welfare/foodstamps/bailouts v more coporate [sic] welfare/foodstamps/bailouts

Where do I begin? This seems to go against the religious ethic of helping the poor, but that would be a facile digression. Once again, Carlton Pryor, “The bank bailout, done during the Bush II administration was a necessary first step toward pushing back from the precipice of Depression. Had this and the Stimulus not been done we would not be having this conversation but rather a conversation about whether America would recover economically in time to save itself as a nation. Now with the American economy finally healing a 2016 election of Ms Palin and retrograde economists that would advise her would be to run headlong toward that cliff and leap, on faith, to demise.”

14. helping the helpless, not the clueless v getting the clueless/useful idiots become addicted to free stuffs/entitlement programs

Well I would imagine this commenter want President Palin to do away with Social Security, which is an entitlement program and allow millions of Baby Boomers to be reduced to eating pet food or starving to death in the streets. This isn’t hyperbole, this is what would happen under this sort of draconian economic policy.

15. no rewarding bad behaviors v rewarding bad behaviors/illegal immigrants (undocumented democrats), DESERTER/TRAITOR Bowe Bergdahl, … etc.

Bad behaviors are most often not rewarded in America. Counties, cities and states all have laws to punish criminals. On the immigration front I stand on the fact that what made America great were the immigrants who to this day provide the diversity needed to maintain a powerful democracy. Bergdahl? I’ll leave that to the Judge Advocate General to investigate his status and whether a Court Martial is required.

16. Saving America from bankruptcy v Bankrupting America

I honestly don’ t know what Palin can do, without a cooperative Congress, from 2017 until 2021 to save America from bankruptcy. If anything her administration’s potential policies will send America into that abyss.

17. Restoring America’s greatness v TRANSFORMING America into some socialist utopia

Did you hear the dog whistle? More need for male white privilege to keep “the Other” from taking their share of the American Dream.

GENERAL OF THE SKIES NUULO ISDRIX PRESS CONFERENCE 11 ASHTAQ 3 AS ON THREATS TO THE EMPIRE

Posted in CONSERVATIVE VIOLENCE, COUNTER-SHAI'TANISM, COUNTER-THEOCRACY, DAVID LANE, DIRECTAT JAVETH NATHUX, GENERAL OF THE SKIES NUULO ISDRIX, LAAL HETHRI, PETER LEITHART with tags , , on 04/07/2014 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_4

What follows is the text of Laal Hethri Director General of the Skies Nuulo Isdrix’s press conference on matters involving developments on Terra over the last 48 hours:

****************************BEGIN STATEMENT FROM LAAL HETHRI DIRECTOR*********************************************

OFFICIAL AND UNREDACTED****************DECLAS 11 ASHTAQ 3 AS******************************************************

“Good morning. I will take a few questions after this statement. After conferring with Her Imperial Majesty Ang’ki Hoor I, and presenting her with the information that has been gathered by our operatives on four continents on the world called Terra, I am now able to declare that the Laal Hethri as an organization has determined that the greatest threat to the stability of Hell at this time is the growing violent apostatic religious movements. Long we have fought the abhorrent incarnation of Shai’tan as manifest in al Qaeda, but that group which was nearly destroyed from the top down has reanimated itself into the current threat of ISIS. While the group now seeks to form a Caliphate from Europe to China and is seeking to strike civilians, innocent civilians, women and children, in Africa, Europe and North America, I feel that they are a temporary threat to the global security of Terra.

A far greater threat that rarely is taken seriously is religious based conservative Christian terrorism with the United States of America. This threat is growing exponentially by the day within the borders of America. While my agency with assistance from the Directat Javeth Nathux, and I must say I thank their director for his commitment to team building between our agencies, estimate that there are less than 100,000 individuals in the United States that would follow an order to do violent harm to civilians in the name of a Biblical Revolution, this number is significant when one considers the number of weapons that are in the hands of these persons. The DJN estimates that evangelical terrorists in the United States currently possess over 1.3 million firearms and close to 500 million rounds of ammunition. I have declassified these findings because there are those within the Parliament here in Hell that do not wish our very nation to remain vigilant on all fronts to threats to the styability of the Afterlife. These people wish us only to focus on the threat that to them is ‘the Other’ which does not think and act like those they loved when they were on Terra. For my agency and the eleven other agencies engaged in defeating terrorists on Terra as a service to the Living this would be a dereliction of duty.

So today The Laal Hethri and the Directat Javeth Nathux in concert with intelligence agencies in the European Union and the United States will coordinate its efforts to focus on the threat coming internally in America from persons like David Lane, Peter Leithart and Father C. John McCloskey, who have openly called for violent revolution in the name of their religious beliefs. Their calls for martyrdom have not fallen on deaf ears here in Hell. As we have aided the Living in their war against apostate Islam, so too Hell will offer all its resources and technology in the elimination of Christian terrorists in America.”

A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF WHY THE RIGHT IS WRONG

blochadvocate_1

I had fleeting memory of Cindy McCain and Megan McCain being in an ad for the gay rights group NOH8 four years ago but this ad has burned an image in the mind of Mark Noonan at Blogs4Victory. Noonan an intractable Catholic conservative who is so concerned with his own immortal Soul that he would be willing to disenfranchise millions of Americans, deny millions more their civil rights and even deny health care options to every woman in America who would seek any form of birth control writes:

“I remember a while back ago when I saw a picture of Cindy and Meghan McCain made up in the “NoH8″ logo and it immediately occurred to me just how absolutely disgusting it was – while “NoH8″ had been around for a while, it suddenly struck me what it really meant – what the liberal fascists, that is, meant by using it: that anyone who disagrees with them is a hate-filled bigot, unfit for decent company. It told me, point blank, that by the mere fact of being a Catholic in accord with the Magisterium, I was the modern version of Bull Connor. Plenty of Republicans fell for it – after all, it was just about not hating, right? Perhaps not. Maybe the whole purpose of “NoH8″ was to get people to hate the “other” – in this case, anyone who disagreed with same-sex marriage?”

This is just the beginning of a post (which should be read in full to understand the lunacy of the right) that exposes what is wrong with the mainstream religious conservative in America. In one way he wants special treatment for himself and his beliefs despite not holding these beliefs all his life and not ever being challenged or discriminated against because of them. This is in stark contrast with countless black Americans, women and LGBTQ persons who have given their lives in their struggle for equality with self proclaiming religious white men.

cindy mccain noh8

Noonan, a Catholic is now on the same side of history as those who were in the Ku Klux Klan in their heyday at the onset of the Roaring Twenties. The similarities between the rhetoric, bigotry and desire for unearned privilege is almost without divergence. He makes a point that any conservative that disagrees with a Liberal who feels that LGBTQ Americans deserve the same equal treatment under the law as he does as a citizen will be portrayed as a bigot or worse, is a non-starter. Anyone who does this and stands on their religion as the proof and reason IS a bigot. It is the height of hubris that Mark Edward Noonan feels that his Catholic beliefs should strip the rights of anyone. This is the definition of bigotry; that one’s beliefs are a legitimate reason to hate.

fascism_when_faFascism_comes_to_america_it_will_be_wrapped_in_the_flag_and_carrying_a_cross_sinclair_lewis

This is nothing new coming from Noonan or from conservatives in America panicked that their unearned privilege has been exposed and that their numbers are dwindling. It is no wonder that he can bear none of my comments at his site no matter how civil or fact filled. He stands on his faith which he holds more dear than the rule power of the Constitution which conservatives swear they want America to return. This is yet another paradox for those who think like Noonan. It is not enough for him that he lives in a nation that is the most free in the world (despite NSA spying and runaway technological snooping by corporations) he and his brethren must rule; especially if it is at the expense of those who do not share his values.

CHARLES BLOW, PAUL RYAN AND THE NEED TO BUILD A NEW AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS

blochadvocate_1

Paul Ryan’s recent comments about “inner city” poverty were rightly understood by many Americans as an offensive and bigoted comment bordering on racist, since Ryan has significant political power. Conservatives, however, are angered by anything that takes the coded comments their leaders make and clarifies them by exposing the code as New York Times columnist Charles Blow did on 21 March 2014. The problem with poverty is, that like crime and other social ills which need to be addressed in current times, it is a broad spectrum ill. Poverty does not belong to black men in the “inner cities” those dark and frightening places where suburban white conservatives stage their most nightmarish rape and murder fantasies. Nor doe poverty only belong in the nostalgic era of the rural Midwestern dust bowl. One would only need to look at the rapacious nature of the last recession in America’s suburbs where people used their homes as ATMs and paid a terrible cost for their folly.

Black American political leaders were slow to call out conservative homeowners and suburban couples who spent their evenings trying to find homes to flip during the years that led up to the housing bubble. Now, in this demographic transition period in America conservative leaders in Washington trying desperately to get moderate white voters to vote for the privilege they have not earned by using the same code language that Southern governors used to fight against the integration of schools and lunch counters. There is likely not one conservative leader that would admit that they know conservative people in positions of corporate or governmental power who hold bigoted positions out of fear of, as Glenn Beck put it “being overrun.” And what exactly does that mean being overrun? It means having and enjoying an unearned privilege based on the color of one’s skin vice the content of their character.

The age of this privilege started to end long before the first President of color was elected and sworn in to office. It began with small steps in the 1890s and saw America as a white monolith enact laws that mandated the constitutionality of separate but equal. Three generations later that facade was cracked further by the Brown v Board decision. The march for civil rights in America has changed the very cultural opinion of the majority of its citizens and to save America that cultural shift must be applied to how Americans view the poor. It is no longer a viable solution for middle class conservative whites to rally around their values and religion in an effort to hang on to this dying thread of privilege they enjoy. The time is now for the American people to put aside their racial and religious fears and pick up the banner of giving every American a chance at the American dream. A new push for affirmative action must come out of conservatives realizing their culture war is lost and that the only way to save themselves and their nation is to work day and night to bring about a new educated and working middle class– for all.

VOX POPULI: CONSERVATIVES TAKE AN END OF YEAR CHANCE TO VENT THEIR ANGER AND THREATEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AT BREITBART

Posted in BIGOTRY, BREITBART, CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE, THE CONSIGLIERI, VULCA with tags , , , on 29/12/2013 by consigliereciucava

Thoeressamt

I must say my admiration of the President of the United States grows by the day. President Barack Obama, a true Human Being, is made of far more stern stuff than I. The vile comments, the unbridled hatred and the foul mouth bigotry that is spewed at him on the Internet every day would be enough to wear down any lesser being. Speaking only for myself and not for my entire species I know that I would crumble under just a few days of the pressure that he swims in with grace and intellect 24 hours a day seven days a week.

The conservative bigots at Breitbart however see America and Terra quite differently. The long for the days when America [read white men} controlled the world. I would be the first to admit the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy ring loud and true today in America as compared to when the average TEA Partier was 20 years old, “The world is very different now.” Back in that time the mid 1970s some social change had been made but as Reagan entered office in 1981 there was a collective sigh of relief on the Right. The times were still economically tough, but Democrats in the Congress worked with Reagan to pull America out of the economic mess of the post Nixon, Ford, and Carter administrations. No such thing has happened during Obama’s tenure in the White House. The GOP, hijacked by the TEA Party has become an Enemy of the White House as they are allied against the President on every several issue.

The reason for this is that the far Right feels that the loud voices who call for America to “go back to the Constitution” were put off by both Romney and before him McCain. What is really true is the GOP is no longer a viable national party because a full third of them, those with TEA Party/Koch Brothers alliances have to cater to a rabid minority of 25 million voters who believe thing like you will see below which are comments made at Breitbart.com to a post made by Robert Wilde about the Obamas not attending church on 25 December 2013 while on vacation in Hawaii:

Reagan didn’t go to church, after getting elected, because of the burden it would have put upon the parishioners, with all the Secret Service agents, etc. At least that was the reason he gave. No one ought to be holding Obama to a higher standard, agreed. Old Scratch, though, doesn’t seem to mind shutting down an entire restaurant so he can eat a hamburger while all other patrons do without while he chows down–he could easily invite the chefs to prepare his burger at the White House, couldn’t he, and spare the other patrons the inconvenience? I don’t remember Reagan holding Waffle House hostage so he could belly up to a good pancake breakfast. I’m sure Barry would happily shut down an entire megachurch for Christmas prayer for himself and his nappy little brood if it gave a good photo-op for him. Reagan, like Obama, was the king of staged photo-ops. Remember that hilarious one where the Secret Service staged an assassination attempt on Reagan to boost his popularity in the polls? Obama ought to try that one, what with his poll numbers sinking to Nixonian levels and lower.

It becomes our business when a candidate for President presents himself as a practicing Christian, continues to present himself as having Christian beliefs, while behind the scenes is something totally different. As President, his beliefs are our business when we as voters are making a decision about who we want to lead this country. When that person lies to us for the sole purpose of deceiving us into believing he is something he isn’t just to get elected, then we should all be concerned.

The “majority that voted,” voted against God. What has happened since is just noise. The Muslim took the popular vote in 2008. Whatever has happened since is deception. We have seen our last freely-elected President.
It’s over…

My daughter has a good friend who is Jewish Iranian. Her grandmother (who fled Iran after the shah was deposed) says Obama speaks and acts like a Muslim. She says this about all things Obama. She also is adamant about anyone with a name Hussein is Muslim period.

The only “shovel ready jobs” we can ever expect from obama will be to bury our dead that he personally murdered with his DEATH PANELS AND HIS OBAMACARE.
Obama is well on the way to becoming a mass murderer as bad as any in the entire history of the world.
ONLY OUR 2ND AMENDMENT IS PREVENTING THIS!

I’ve been reading some of your insightful and grammatically correct posts, buckwheat:

“Oh yes, and I hope all the people out of work and all the people who lost their insurance vote conservative!”

What’s your point? We long ago stopped locking up mental defectives like yourself, Elmer–maybe we ought to start doing it again? I’ve heard that Obamacare has a lot of provisions for mandatory mental health care for waterheads like yourself. I have a cousin who works for the government, and he’s shown me some of the new rules for commitment. One of them is that if the subject has an atavistic fear of using proper grammar, such as apostrophes and commas, he is going to be locked up. A sure sign of mental illness, according to the new Obamacare rules. They will be coming after you soon, Elmer. My advice to you is to stop posting. Every grammatically incorrect sentence that you post is just more evidence needed for Obama and his boys to lock you up. As a conservative, I very much wish that you can just be safe in your mentally defective way, and keep hanging out in the library and such, and taking your methadone and all. But Obama is coming after you, man. Eric Holder is going to lock you up for being mentally defective. Just trying to watch out for a poor soul, that’s all. Take care, man, and when The Real Man knocks on your door, head out the fire escape.

Obummer got reelected, why does he need to go to church now. He paid his dues to Reverend Wright and made a whole lot of low information voters think he cared. He did not and does not.
Communist do not like religion as they want people to believe in the government and that all things come from the government. To believe in GOD means the people believe in a higher power, and we know Obummer thinks he is a God and there is no higher power. On Judgment Day he is in for a RUDE surprise.

So, you also think it would be wrong to judge someone like Hitler, too? Note to the faux St. Marc………..most of us are not southern, and we call it like it is. The only “hate” is what Obama has directed to the U.S. population and especially our troops.

You cast the first stone, buckwheat. I despise hypocrites. I guess that there are more good Christians in the North? Are they hypocrites like yourself, who throw stones? You aren’t a Christian, you make me sick.

“Mucho Christians inda SOUTH…”

Also, you should have paid attention to your third grade teacher when s/he was teaching grammar, buckwheat.

All aspects of my life revolve around my faith and I despise O more than most but this is a non-story. I don’t care if he goes to a building to worship Christ….but I’ve never believed his life was centered around Christianity in anyway, one can’t do what he’s done and claim to be a practicing Christain….color me not affected by O’s lack of Christian faith.

…because he’s pretending to be Christian when we all know that he receives daily texts from his Imam. He’s some kind of Muslim.
.
As a side note, the news states that he’s being advised by SIX muslim Brotherhood members. . Do we need to know any more about this IMPOSTER and TRAITOR.

Media outlest including Fox News reported the Obama family spent part of the holiday at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
