Most Basic of Rights

Posted by Foxfier on 2011/08/21

From another blog:

Beers with Demo: OK, it isn’t just about the economy, stupid

Pointing to a post– from PJM– which points out that, basically, the right to life is the most basic of rights. If you can’t defend it, if the government gets to decide how important it is, and when, then you don’t have much of any rights at all.

The Travails Of Grandparenthood

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/21

Let me set the stage a little. We moved. We moved to a piece of countryside with three families living inside a fenced-in piece of land. My german shepherd dog is tethered to a tree via a cable sturdy enough not to snap due to her strength. My dog is tethered because we don’t want her to leave the area and she hasn’t been trained to stay within confines. Okay, that’s good enough.

My daughter left town for the week-end, leaving me with my grandson. No problem. I’ve handled the situation before.

My daughter’s BFF, a single mother of a 4-year-old girl, called me up asking if I’d babysit her daughter while she spent the evening out enjoying the company of other adults. No problem. I’ve handled an evening with a 4-year-old and a toddler before. Piece o’ cake, piece o’ pie. I can handle managed chaos for a few hours.

Well, the girl wanted to play outside for a while. No problemo. We go out front, where my dog is tethered to a tree beside the fence, so the kids can have some outdoor fun.

Fun.

But Mister Murphy comes to the front yard, toting his Law.

The neighbor’s four dogs rush the fence and start running up and down the fence, barking like there’s no tomorrow.

My dog, tethered by a sturdy cable to the tree, joins in, running up and down the fence, barking like there’s no tomorrow.

Joshua runs into my dog’s area (the area my dog can reach while tethered by a cable to the tree).

The four-year-old girl gets in front of me, trying to strike up a conversation with me. (It’s all a planned distraction, I’m sure.)

Having no ability to get to my grandson while my dog, tethered by a 20-foot cable, is running wildly up and down a piece of fenceline, I decided to yell at my dog to try to still her.

Hearing my yell, my dog stopped running up and down the fence line and instead chose to run toward me (while I was well out of range).

Joshua, my 17-month-old grandson, was well within my dog’s area.

As my dog ran toward me with no hope of ever coming close to reaching me, the cable reached up and snagged Joshua, sending him flying face first into the very hard ground.

Now Joshua has road-rash on his face and I have a story to tell. And my daughter, Joshua’s mother, hasn’t heard the story or seen the road-rash.

Anyone want to tell my daughter the story while I take a month-long vacation?

Always Remember MSNBC Is Hypocritical And Radical Leftist

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/21

If you ever bother to watch MSNBC, always remember it is a hyper-partisan, radical Leftist faux news channel. Lawrence O’Donnell loudly proclaimed his devotion to socialism on air. Rachel Maddow tried to malign FOX News for allegedly doing the exact same thing MSNBC does with regularity. Martin Bashir tried to malign Sarah Palin for her allegedly political usage of the US Flag, while MSNBC has made much political usage of the US flag.

Always remember. Anytime anyone, anyone at all, references MSNBC as a source, always remember MSNBC is further left than 90 percent of the US, and less honest (more dishonorable) than 90 percent of the US.

Never, under any circumstances, ever take MSNBC as a reliable source for anything. If you do so, you’re either an abject fool, or you’re a radical Leftist abject fool. There is no other option.

Truth Before Dishonor Is A Pro-Israel Site

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/21

Not only does Israel have a right to exist, but also a right to maintain a defensible border and a unified Israeli Jerusalem. To date, only two Middle East countries (Egypt and Jordan) have signed peace treaties with Israel. The remaining countries have cease-fires with Israel — an extremely different animal entirely. And as of this writing, Egypt is well on its way to eradicating its peace treaty with Israel. Many of the countries in the region refuse to acknowledge the right of Israel, Israelis, Jews to exist. And Egypt is quickly approaching that stage where it once again refuses to acknowledge the right of Israel, Israelis, Jews to exist (as it was prior to the Sadat/Begin peace treaty).

Israel has the right to proactively defend itself with overwhelming force against its enemies. Israel has the right to attack without warning, using any military means necessary, in its proactive defense. But Israel has gone “above and beyond” by giving warnings to the civilian population on more than one occasion — a very bad military strategy, but one absolutely necessary politically due to the severe anti-Israel sentiment among the world’s Leftists (but that consideration and attempt at amelioration has never had any effect on the Leftist emotionalism).

Israel further has the right to obtain and maintain buffer zones in its defense against the myriad countries and terrorist organizations arrayed against it, and to annex land into Israel Proper in its defensive travails. It is a well-known fact that Israel cannot afford to lose a single war, else it ceases to exist, while all the Mohammedan countries at animosity to Israel only need to win one war and Israel is destroyed.

Israel is the only free, democratic nation in the region. Israel is the only nation in the region that allows the free exercise of Judaism, Christianity and Mohammedanism without repercussion. Israel is the only nation in the region that allows Jews and Arabs to serve high elected offices within government. The rest of the region is far less than free. Iraq has democratic elections and a framework of democracy but the Mohammedan anti-freedom, anti-Israel, anti-America foreign insurgents prevent a true freedom and a true democratic and free society to gain any semblance of a strong foundation. Without American presence, even the shadow of democracy would quickly fade away in Iraq. The rest are Mohammedan tyrannies. Kingdoms, caliphate, terrorist-owned and caused barren land, however you wish to describe it.

Genesis 12
The Call of Abram

1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

Israel has been Blessed from Providence’s founding of it. And the Curse is recognized as absolutely real. While the Blessing has no consideration in my pro-Israel stance, I hold out the Curse to all who choose to side with the Mohammedans and terrorists (same thing) who fight for the destruction of Israel.
