Jesus the Reformed Racist

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/28

The Anchoress has a very good article regarding the current mealy-mouthed attempts of some “churches” to discount Jesus’ perfection. It is definitely worth reading. She exposes falsehoods espoused by those liberal “thinkers.” I strongly suggest reading it.

(Since I won’t register, I can’t post a comment on her site. So consider this an almost “trackback” would ya, Anchoress?)

Liberals Are Racists

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/28

First off, the header is an intentional example of hasty generalization. I do not believe all liberals are racists. But some are. And I recently experienced the racism of liberals.

Last night, I spent some time on Sadly, No!, a liberal blog. It was an interesting experience to say the least. Of course, when I let it be known I was a Christian, I was immediately mocked. That was not in the least unexpected. None of the liberal commenters stepped up to the defense of my Christianity. That was not unexpected, either.

Of course, as soon as I arrived, I was declared a troll. I admit I went there expecting a fight. I entered a post about Rush Limbaugh and how evil he is, whereupon I made a “declaration of war” as it were. I made note of how liberals mocked Christians when the Christians loudly decried The Last Temptation of Christ and called for a boycott. The liberals egged the Christians on about that boycott because the louder the Christians decried the blasphemous movie, the more tickets were sold. People wanted to know what all the hubbub was concerning the movie.

I tied the Christian outspokenness against the movie to the current liberal outspokenness against Rush, Sean, et al. I said the louder the liberals squawked about them, the more people will tune in to find out what the problem was. I further stated as fact that more people listening will cause more people to understand the context and see the facts laid bare, causing more people to understand and agree with the conservative talk show hosts.

And of course, the firestorm hit.

I supported a narcotics addict. Karl Rove called conservatives uneducated buffoons. The Bush administration poo-pood the Christians that supported Bush. Conservatives were afraid of negroes and hated negroes. And there was the beginning of the racist mumbo jumbo.

When I laughed off the “racist” thing, pointing it was humorous considering my heritage, the first response was obvious. Only a white person who is 1/16 Cherokee would talk about heritage. True mixed-race people don’t use the word “heritage.” (What’s “true” mixed-race? That sounds like a “fully pregnant v partially pregnant” argument.)

It is true that I am among the whitest of people. That comes from my Irish heritage. My mother had two grandparents who were half Irish. But my two brothers’ complexions and hair color show our Mexican heritage. My father’s side of the family traces their lineage from American Indians, Mexicans and citizens of the nation of Texas. But that’s beside the point. As is my daughter’s dating life, as I have previously discussed.

I didn’t bring up my daughter’s dating life or the true make-up of my heritage because that would’ve been begging the question and it would’ve made me appear more shallow than they already decided I was. It was irrelevant anyway, as I was having fun watching them go into their full-on hate mode and watching all their hasty generalizations and ad hominem attacks.

After a time of playing “chase the fox” and listening to them talk about how conservatives hate and are afraid of blacks, I put it to them. The big question. The one about black conservatives and latino conservatives. And the truth came out. Hoo boy, was that fun.

With all their antics about “fear the negro” business and other conservative anti-non-white business, I brought up a few people. I would say it was enlightening, but that would not be the truth. I knew how they would respond. And they reacted just how I expected.

Again, not all liberals believe what these commenters said. But the amazing thing (not really) was the fact no commenter objected to the obvious racism being spouted.

Actually, it is a bit humorous to hear people calling me a racist, considering my heritage.
Being related to Michael Steele, Alan Keyes or Juan Williams doesn’t count.

So, snyg, you are indeed calling any non-white people who vote Republican race-traitors? How tolerant of you.

SomeNYGuy said,

So, snyg, you are indeed calling any non-white people who vote Republican race-traitors?
In the current political climate? Unequivocally, yes.

And there we have it. Without a doubt, any non-white who votes Republican is a race-traitor. And nobody called him on that. And these all-inclusive tolerant types show their highly exclusive and intolerant colors.

It was fun while it lasted. And their hate and sexual attacks and intolerance and racism was very frothy.

Everyone Attack Rush

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/28

Can’t the liberals learn anything? Can’t they remember anything? Anyone remember how Christians were raising a stink about the blasphemous Last Temptation of Christ? Rembember what liberals were saying then?

Here’s a hint. The liberals were cheering the Christians for the boycott. It drew more attention to the movie. It made more people buy tickets to find out what the uproar was about. Okay, that wasn’t exactly a hint.

You crazy, brain-dead liberals, keep whinging about Rush Limbaugh. That will only make more people tune in to find out what’s so bad about him. And the more people tune in, the more they’ll find out the context of Rush. The more people find out about the context of Rush, the more people will “spew (the liberals) out of their mouths.”

A Quote To Remember

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/27

From Brainy Quotes:

The tax on capital gains directly affects investment decisions, the mobility and flow of risk capital… the ease or difficulty experienced by new ventures in obtaining capital, and thereby the strength and potential for growth in the economy.
John F. Kennedy

Side Effects

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/25

Head Noises unknowingly reminded me of an experiment I did in high school. I am frequently reminded of the experiment so it’s not her fault.

Back in the early 1980s, I was in track and cross-country in high school, so I needed all the energy and stamina I could find. I decided I would perform a month-long experiment with my diet. I eliminated sugar from my diet to see how it would effect my energy.

In my experiment, I gave up candy and chocolate and sweetened beverages. It took a while to get used to strong unsweetened iced tea. I even decided not to eat apples and oranges and the like because they contained sugar.

I was very much surprised by the results of my experiment. I was more alert throughout the day. I was also very much less lethargic. And my times improved noticeably in my endurance events. It was very obvious to me that removing sugar from my intake had very noticeable positive results all the way around.

My decision after the experiment was “Various experts are right. It takes more energy to break down sugar than the energy sugar provides.”

But the side effects? For the past 28 years, I have been unable to eat creme sticks and many other sweets. They are far too rich for me. Before the experiment, frosting was the only good part of cake. After the experiment, there is no good part of cake.

And the side effect caused a precarious social conundrum. My girlfriend bought me a creme stick on my 16th birthday. I forced myself to eat half the creme stick but couldn’t bear to eat any more of it. After carrying the nasty thing for half an hour, I finally apologized profusely to my girlfriend as I threw it in the trash bin.

And the moral is: Don’t perform experiments on yourself if you’re not ready to accept unexpected side effects.

MSNBC Not Partisan?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/25

Patterico has the video.

So, the network can introduce a Republican, issue forth a profanity, have off-stage laughter, and still claim to be non-partisan?

Olbermann et al need thrown out and refused media jobs where they actually have direct contact, one-way or two-way, with people.

Everyone Is My Age

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/25

I have “met” many people online over the past 13 years. They have all been my age, sorta. I entered the internet community in 1996 and promptly found a MUD I enjoyed. I spent several years on Mortal Realms developing friends and finding people I didn’t like. I spent time creating several areas and overseeing areas others created and policing the MUD. And, for the vast majority of the time, I enjoyed my time there.

When I decided Mortal Realms was no longer a place of enjoyment, I moved on to Shattered Kingdoms and again enjoyed my free time immensely, gathering an entire new set of friends and finding a new set of people I didn’t like. While I never did achieve the same stature at Shattered Kingdoms as I had at Mortal Realms, my time with Shattered Kingdoms was much more rewarding for my free time in many ways.

I have recently entered the political blogosphere and I have found a new set of friends as I spend my free time. The ones I have found I don’t like are called trolls, which is apropos considering the part of the internet from which I came. I spent many years hacking trolls to death during my MUDding life and now I get to do the same thing in the blogosphere, figuratively speaking.

I have met several people who strongly disagree and debate honestly. I have not dealt with them long enough to consider whether they will become my friends or no. But I don’t knee-jerk decide I don’t like them. I don’t like trolls. I accept “wrong” opinions in honest discourse.

During my time MUDding, I was surrounded by people in the 14 – 24 age group with outliers. And I was always one of the outliers. But still, my own mind caused me to think of them as my age. I have always been older than the vast majority of MUDders but, when conversing with them, they always became my age in my mind. Many of them were from outside the US but nearly all of them became Americans in my mind. The fact the vast majority of them were flaming liberals didn’t matter. We had other things to talk about and we had other ties to make us friends.

Now that I am in the political blogosphere, I’m meeting a new group of people. A group that is heavily political in their free time. Of course, they are for the most part right (intriguing how right is right and the opposite is wrong). Even among the conservative bloggers, I have found people with whom I disagree on multiple points. But overall, they are right. ;) Many of the points where we disagree are glossed-over because they are not the topic at hand and they don’t cause us to lose our self-control.

I have met some brave liberals who have entered the conservative blogosphere and have debated with integrity. I welcome the chance to debate them and the chance to watch as better-skilled people debate each other. I have also met those trolls. I don’t consider them liberals or conservatives. They are narcissistic anarchists, most likely.

And yet, they all appear in my mind to be my age. All of them, from the bloggers to the MUDders are my age and my education level, despite the fact some of them are young enough to be my children and some are old enough to be my parents, despite the fact some are high school students and some have a PhD.

It is interesting what the online world does to perspective.

I Am An Anti-Trust Conservative

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/24

I have noticed there have been many times when conservatives have favored letting large corporations merge with each other or buy each other out while liberals have been in opposition. But most of the time, both conservatives and liberals have either approved or have chosen not to have a voice. I have nearly always been opposed to letting huge conglomerates merge with each other.

A question will likely arise from some people. How can a laissez-faire conservative support government interference in conglomerate-making? That question contains a false premise. And that premise is “anyone who wants limited government and market-place economy wants zero government oversight.” I guarantee I am not at all interested in “zero government oversight” of business. A complete removal of all regulations is an anarchical and not conservative aim.

So, how does anti-trust and conservatism intersect? It is simple, actually. Small government and a lack of an omnipotent central government is everpresent in conservative mindsets. The more centralized a government, the less free the people. The same goes for businesses. The greater the conglomeration, the greater the consolidation of power, and the less free the people.

Great conglomerations are anathema to market-place competition. As businesses combine, there are fewer competitors. As businesses grow, the small competitors can easily be priced out of existence. Huge conglomerates can set the price of the goods they buy, and any who wish to survive must sell at the prices the conglomerates set. Huge conglomerates can set the wage rates, and any who wish to work must accept those wage rates. After all, there are people waiting outside the doors more than willing to accept those wage rates. Huge conglomerates can afford to sell at a loss to run small business completion out of business, then raise the price of their goods to make profits.

The long-range goal is far more important than the short-range goal, as it should be. But that short-range loss can consume small businesses that don’t have the financial wherewithal to survive to consider long-range. In a great many rural areas, the loss of the small businesses is acutely felt. Business owners lose lots of income and net-worth. Employers vanish. Overall pay-scales tumble. But the conglomerates don’t feel any of the suffering they cause.

And the beat goes on. Millions of people suffer from the loss of income, the loss of advancement opportunities from management experience, the loss of consumer choice, the loss of competition while the conglomerates continue to expand untouched by the pain caused. This is the inherent problem with all power structures with an omnipotent central power.

Another major concern is suddenly obvious in today’s news. There is a time when huge conglomerates can suddenly become “too big to fail.” When that time comes, and those conglomerates do prove to be insolvent, government has to step in and pump in billions of taxpayer dollars to prop them up. When the government gives 100 billion dollars to one of these “too big to fail” entities, that costs every taxpayer 800 dollars (guesstimate).

When smaller businesses fail, a limited number of people will have to pay for the failure, and a small segment of others will feel the failure. But the rest of the people move on without suffering. It is this reason why conglomerates should be prevented from being too large. No business should ever become “too large to fail.”
While many businesses which are “too large to fail” have failed, there are yet others which have not yet failed. These others, and yes, Wal-Mart is one of them, need broken up like Ma Bell for the betterment of all concerned.

Sidebar: The financial market failure had a catalyst outside the financial market. That catalyst was the laws and regulations set forth by the over-large central government as controlled by socialist Democrats in collusion with corrupt politicians. Among them are Frank, Schumer, Dodd, Pelosi, Kennedy,Byrd.

Letting Go Of More Terrorists

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/23

U.S. Frees ‘Black September’ Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Golda

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) The Black September terrorist who plotted to murder former Prime Minister Golda Meir was released Thursday from a United States prison after having served only about half of his 30-year sentence, according to the Associated Press.

So the US government is setting a terrorist free and deporting him. We don’t even know where we are going to send him. We don’t even know his real name. We do know he tried to assassinate an Israeli prime minister by bombing her in the US. We do know he was closely tied to terrorists for many years before his capture. It certainly is trusting of us to release him early so he can return to his terrorist agenda in the middle east.

Israel Sees Obama Agenda For What It’s Worth

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/23

From INN via email comes this report:

1. Obama Appoints Anti-Israel Aide
by David Lev Obama Appoints Anti-Israel Aide

A flurry of reports over the weekend said that the former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, considered a sharp critic of Israel, is to be named to a top intelligence post in the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Chas W. Freeman Jr., who was U.S. ambassador in Riyadh from 1989-1992, is set to be named chairman of the National Intelligence Council, which has a strong influence on the content of the intelligence briefings presented to the President (and puts together the National Intelligence Estimate, or NIE, which in 2007 dissuaded the Bush regime from attacking Iran). The Council chairman is also often called on to give direct briefings to the President.

Typical of Freeman’s viewpoints is a statement he made in a speech before the Washington Institute of Foreign Affairs in 2007, in which he more or less blames international terrorist acts on Israel: “American identification with Israeli policy has also become total. Those in the region and beyond it who detest Israeli behavior, which is to say almost everyone, now naturally extend their loathing to Americans. This has had the effect of universalizing anti-Americanism, legitimizing radical Islamism, and gaining Iran a foothold among Sunni as well as Shiite Arabs. For its part, Israel no longer even pretends to seek peace with the Palestinians; it strives instead to pacify them. Palestinian retaliation against this policy is as likely to be directed against Israel’s American backers as against Israel itself. Under the circumstances, such retaliation – whatever form it takes – will have the support or at least the sympathy of most people in the region and many outside it. This makes the long-term escalation of terrorism against the United States a certainty, not a matter of conjecture.”

Freeman also is a strong advocate of talking to Hamas, which he says “is the only democratically-elected government in the Arab world.” In his speech, Freeman said that “Hamas is showing that if we offer it nothing but unreasoning hostility and condemnation, it will only stiffen its position and seek allies among our enemies. In both cases, we forfeit our influence for no gain.”

Freeman says that Israel must be pressured to accept the American point of view, which does not coincide with its own. “We must talk with all parties, whatever we think of them or their means of struggle. Refusal to reason with those whose actions threaten injury to oneself, one’s friends, and one’s interests is foolish, feckless, and self-defeating. That is why it is past time for an active and honest discussion with both Israel and the government Palestinians have elected, which – in an irony that escapes few abroad – is the only democratically-elected government in the Arab world.”

In another speech Freeman said: “We destroyed the Iraqi state and catalyzed anarchy, sectarian violence, terrorism, and civil war in that country… Meanwhile, we embraced Israel’s enemies as our own; they responded by equating Americans with Israelis as their enemies. We abandoned the role of Middle East peacemaker to back Israel’s efforts to pacify its captive and increasingly ghettoized Arab populations. We wring our hands while sitting on them as the Jewish state continues to seize ever more Arab land for its colonists. This has convinced most Palestinians that Israel cannot be appeased and is persuading increasing numbers of them that a two-state solution is infeasible. It threatens Israelis with an unwelcome choice between a democratic society and a Jewish identity for their state. Now the United States has brought the Palestinian experience – of humiliation, dislocation, and death – to millions more in Afghanistan and Iraq. Israel and the United States each have our reasons for what we are doing, but no amount of public diplomacy can persuade the victims of our policies that their suffering is justified, or spin away their anger, or assuage their desire for reprisal and revenge.”

If that isn’t enough documentation to prove Israel is justified in its concern regarding the new US administration, I don’t know what is. Israel knows the new US admin has no desire to protect Israel from the “Israel must cease to exist” group of nations and extremists. Israel knows that for at least the next four years she stands alone in her quest for survival.

A Quote Worth Remembering

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/22

From Military Quotes.com

“Sure, we want to go home. We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper hanging son-of-a-bitch Hitler. Just like I’d shoot a snake!”

Is The Tribulation Approaching?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/22

Let’s take a brief look at what the US government is doing to for us.

• The government buys stock in finance companies/brokerage firms to prop them up, saying it will not control the finance companies.
• The government bails out Fannie and Freddie and other banks. They need to survive to prevent a banking collapse.
• The government pumps billions into US automakers. They need to survive to prevent economic collapse.
• The government mandates electronic health recordkeeping and requires a single site for storage. This is to force recordkeeping to rise to 21st century standards.
• The government sets up a system to advise all medical practitioners on financially appropriate measures to take with patients.
• Multiple people within the government are pushing for a return to the “fairness doctrine” in an effort to balance out the political coverage provided by radio. Suggestions of spreading the doctrine from the radio to the internet.
• Members within the government are considering placing GPS units in all cars to change the gasoline tax to a “miles” tax in an effort to make people pay for their road usage in a way better than the current per-gallon tax.
What does this mean to you?
The government will have full control/ownership of banks, so you can’t do any banking without government approval or oversight. Money will not be able to change hands without government approval. The stock market exchanges will be similarly controlled.
The government will have ownership of any house with a mortgage. You will not be permitted to buy or sell a residence without explicit government approval.
The government will own national car companies. It will not stop at car companies. You will not be able to buy new products without government oversight.
The government will own any health provider. You will only get what the government approves.
The government will own the airwaves and all other forms of mass media. You will not be permitted to broadcast anything in any fashion without government approval.
The government will be able to track you down regardless of where you drive. The only way to avoid being tracked down would be by forgetting about normal methods of transportation.
I’m not talking “nanny state” like many conservatives are talking. I’m talking “Big Brother” like Orwell said. I’m talking Tribulation like the Bible said. If all these things are taken to their limits, the ultimate outcome will be the Biblical version of the Tribulation.
Obviously, many people will see the innocuous explanations of the need for all these changes. It all sounds good to relieve the pain people are suffering. But all of these things are government pulling individual freedom from people and making the government the entity in control of every aspect of life. Taken in its entirety, all these actions will eliminate the Constitution and any sense of personal freedom if people do not put a stop to the government.
Maybe I’m nuts. Maybe I’m seeing more than is there. But maybe I’m not. I sincerely believe the Bible and I sincerely believe the Tribulation will happen at some point in the future. All true Christians believe it. And what has prevented the Tribulation from happening before now? I honestly believe the US has maintained much of the preventative measures. Our Constitution has protected our freedom to this point. Our military has protected many nations from overthrow. Our government has helped keep Israel from being destroyed.
Today, Iran has enough material to make a nuclear weapon. The name of Iran’s rocket that launched a satellite into orbit was Safir (message) and the satellite was named Omid (hope). The Iranian leader ends all his speeches with “Oh, Allah, give me the strength to hasten the return of the Promised One.” The name of the rocket and satellite, along with the nuclear desires of the Iranian leadership is directly tied to a radical Islamic belief they must create devastation for their mahdi (promised one) to come.
Ahmadinejad is now using government power to block internet ability to see those who are seeking election instead of him. The Taliban is once again gaining legitimacy. Sharia law is being imposed in non-muslim nations. Our own government has decided to reduce DoD budgets while expanding military exposure in Afghanistan. Leaders or surrogates of leaders in the BHO administration have already had direct talks with middle-east terrorist organizations, even prior to being elected.
Our stand in favor of allowing Israel to exist has weakened greatly at the same time the anti-semites have grown in strength. Israel has selected a sturdy pro-preemption prime minister. There will be no doubt Israel will act preemptively to protect its right to exist. But there is question now whether the US will protect Israel’s right to exist or act to endanger Israel.
To top it off, BHO is more popular than Jesus in a hero poll, with God ranking eleventh. I would ask what this world is coming to, but I think I already answered that.

Are Principles Principles Or No?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/19

About ten years ago I had a Republican candidate for city council come to my door. He was campaigning for the primary, to be selected as one of the at-large candidates for city council. Understand, my city is small enough that all councilmen have full-time jobs outside politics. Their pay would not be nearly enough to allow them to live.

I asked this Republican candidate a question I considered of great importance to me. I asked him about pork-barrel spending as my city (by definition, my town has enough residents to be a city) was in line to receive state pork and federal pork. The candidate stated he was categorically opposed to pork, but since the pork was enacted into law through the federal budget process, he was going to do his best to get as much pork as he could for my town. I asked him how his principled stand against pork could actually be a stand against pork if he was willing to stand in line to get it. His response was “if I refuse it, some other town will get it. It’s going to be spent anyway, may as well get what I can for the town.” I told him then and there I would not support him in the primary or general election.

Today, we have a small number of Republican governors who are suggesting they will reject federal stimulus money. If I learn the names of those Republican governors, I will send off emails to them, praising their stand. The “stimulus” money is pure pork and will not stimulate the economy, but will shove this great country further into socialism. And any governor who rejects the money on principle is deserving of a huge HUZZAH!!!

Principles are far more important than “what’s in it for me.” Anyone can claim to have principles, but anyone who sacrifices his or her principles to receive OPM has no principles to begin with.

I call for all with principles to stand up in support of any governor who rejects federal funds on principle.

Sexism Is Alive And Well And Living In the US of A

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/02/19

In an era where “equal rights to all” is loudly demanded of everyone, I have to report there is a rapidly expanding segment of society that is refusing membership based solely on gender. If you are the right gender, you are permitted access to various groups and organizations and institutes. But if you are the wrong gender, don’t bother applying for admission; you will be rejected automatically.

It is very easy to find these gender-specific-apartheid organizations and institutions. Yet, there appears to be no outcry against these gender-specific-apartheid organizations within our society, within our press, within governmental organizations. There is a definite intentional subjective blindness on the part of many government agencies and many citizens’ rights activist groups.

If the organizations and bureaus that strongly advocate gender-blindness, and I support much gender-blindness, were to be true to their stated desires, these gender-specific-apartheid organizations would not be permitted to exist in current form. But the organizations and bureaus are not acting with integrity.

What is the realm of the dishonesty? Very succinctly, male-only anything is illegal while female-only anything is promoted. We have school systems that have created female-only schools because “the girls do better without the competitive nature the boys bring.” We have Curves, a female-only gym, because women will be much more comfortable exercising or working out without men present.

I actually have no problem with women-only schools and gyms. The problem I have is the fact that men-only schools and gyms get attacked by “the NAG gang” as Rush Limbaugh calls them (the national organization of gals (NOW)). But the NAG gang sits idly by while women-only schools are advanced and Curves grows. The NAG gang sits idly by while “soroptimists” refuse any males the opportunity for college scholarships, but will attack any group that refuses females the same opportunity.

Again, I have no problem with Curves, girls-only schools, females-only scholarship programs. What I do have a problem with, on the other hand, is the disingenuous attack by organizations such as NAG when comparable gender-specific groups on the other side are systematically attacked. NAG attacks even gender-blended groups for perceived gender imbalances. But heaven forbid anyone attack a female-only establishment.

What do I want? I want the “freedom of association” clause in the US Constitution to actually be upheld. If that means there is some group or organization that rejects me due to my anatomy, fine. If that means there is some group or organization that accepts me due to my anatomy, fine. People need to be free to associate with the types of people with which they wish to associate.
