Is It Cynicism or Paranoia, Or Whistling Past the Grave Yard? Give it your best

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/30

I know just enough about the market to be scary. I know buy low, sell high. Utilities are mostly good, and stay away from steel and most American autos and airlines. BUT, over on Modern Survival Blog I saw this chart: http://modernsurvivalblog.com/the-economy/major-stock-market-crash-in-january/

Uncanny in its step for step matching:
1 - major-stock-market-crash-in-january

To say the least, I don’t like the chart for what it shows, but I like the blog site. Ken Jorgustin does a good job. Hopefully the circuit breakers at the NYSE Work.

But what I fear the most is the potential chaos this could cause. And after watching the would be Emporer, he would quickly make this an issue to call for country changing edicts all centering around a power grab. BTW, there is always a touch of cynicism and paranoia, or else why write on the Blog?

Billy Graham

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/26

Beautifully articulated.

Truth…………from a man the media has never been able to throw dirt on…..amazing!

He has certainly hit the “world” on the head!
Billy Graham’s Prayer For Our Nation

THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
1 - Billy G

‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.

We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable…

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free. Amen!’

With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our
desire so that we once again can be called ‘One nation under God!’

Eight Days Of Hannukkah

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2013/11/24

Hannukkah begins on Americans’ Thanksgiving this year. So for you Israelis, American Jews, and Jews worldwide that visit, we give you this song.

What else can you say about a song written by a Mormon Senator from Utah with the music written by a Jewish writer of Christian Contemporary music and sung by a Syrian woman from Indiana with backup vocals by Jewish children and the Mormon Senator other than take a listen and be uplifted?

We here at Truth Before Dishonor are Conservative. We are predominantly Christian. That means beyond any shadow of a doubt we are pro-Israel and pro-Jew. This uplifting Hannukkah song is merely a representation of our love for the Jews and for Israel, and a gift to all who visit, Jew or Gentile.

This Christmas, Give the Gift of Shinola

Posted by DNW on 2013/11/22

 

Do you know the difference between … well, you know, and Shinola?

The difference is that Shinola, is made in America. Mostly. Or assembled here. Really, and it’s just too cool for school.

Except that it isn’t because it’s connected with school. A famous design school, The Center for Creative Studies, located in Detroit, Michigan.

Hand made bicycles, Swiss watch movements assembled in the USA and fitted with leather straps hand made in Florida; and footballs. Real honest to goodness footballs, made in America and made to be used.

Shinola Detroit

Hey Bronko! Is that a Shinola?

Made in Detroit … more or less … by college kids and their associates, more or less.

Senate’s nuclear option vote blows up defense policy bill
By Tim Mak
Published November 21, 2013

The Senate’s decision to invoke the “nuclear option” and limit Republican opportunities to use the filibuster had the side-effect of blowing up work on the annual Pentagon policy legislation the body was considering Thursday.
Senators debated the defense bill into the evening on Wednesday, but the work came to an abrupt halt Thursday morning when Democrats moved to change the rules of the Senate.

The move puts into doubt the fate of the National Defense Authorization Act, the one piece of legislation that has been signed by the president for 51 consecutive years.

Trolls, trolls, and trolls no more

Posted by DNW on 2013/11/21

 

 

It looks as though Vox Day is not the only one who finally had enough of neurotics waging their war for unconditional acceptance and compliance through means other than overt violence.

The “editor” of First Street Journal, a blog which has replaced a previously troll-destroyed blogging project of his known as “Common Sense Political Thought”, has finally pulled the plug on that emotionally disturbed New Zealand librarian and Internet provocation specialist who widely appears in comment boxes as “Phoenician in a Time of Romans”.

You know, this very troubled guy who described himself on his own blog in the following terms :

Miserable

Miserable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Double Miserable

Double Miserable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations, “Editor”.  May your blog prosper and your readership increase. And may Phoenician in a Time of Romans find the psychiatric help he needs, and something more constructive to do with his time than wallowing in, and expecting others to tolerate and affirm the “value” of his obnoxious nihilism

Gettysburg Address Travel

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/20

Yesterday was the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. For Lincoln to get to Gettysburg from Washington to Gettysburg, he had to travel to Baltimore and switch to yjr Northern Central RR which headed north to York, PA. But before reaching York, Lincoln had to transfer to a Railroad to Hanover, PA and then to Gettysburg.

But his transfer before York was done at a little switching station called Hanover Junction. It was there, Brady took a picture supposedly with Lincoln in the picture.

1 - Brady National Archives.

The building at Hanover Junction in 1863 still stands, and has been refurbished and brought to what it looked like in 1863. Last week, the Group “Steam into History” http://steamintohistory.com/ re-created this scene.

Barack Obama At 37 Percent Approval

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2013/11/20

And M24OH has a questionnaire.

37% you say? Hm, it actually doesn’t seem like 37% of the people I meet are complete morons or absolute pieces of sh**. Maybe I should make up a ‘worthless p.o.s. idiot test’:

1. Are you entitled to an income just for being alive?
2. Are you entitled to healthcare just for being alive?
3. Do you believe your gender, race, ethnicity, or combination thereof entitle you to preferred treatment in any aspect of societal interaction, i.e. preferences for hiring, housing, public assistance etc., or deference in ordinairy social interactions?
4. Would you refuse miltary service, or other public service, to qualify for the above “entitlements”?
5. Are you of sound mind and body but not actively seeking employment?
6. Do your engage in non-contraceptive-use extra-marital sex while without the means to independently (free of public assistance) raise a dependent child?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you are most likely a “worthless p.o.s. idiot”.

And you probably still think Obuggerme is just swell.

(typos in original)

Sadly, far too many people have rejected the US Constitution and would say “yes” to one or more of those questions.

President What Constitution?????

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/15

In Article II of the US Constitution, that would be the the one that Presidents swear or affirm to uphold in Article II Section 1. says he shall take the following oath or affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

With that, the President must uphold the laws of the United States. On occasions, the Supremes have said this happens in the “Take Care Clause” which is below in Article II, Section 3.

ARTICLE II
Section 1.
The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.

Section 3.
…………….; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, ……….

Note, it didn’t say just the laws you like, or unilaterally change the laws you don’t like.

The remedy for not doing this is in Section 4.
Section 4.
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Now in the last few weeks due to the LAW known as BarackObamaCare, we have seen 5 million people thrown off their then Affordable Health Care, but the reason was, they were inferior to ObummerCare, but they also met the losers needs at a lower cost. BO has caught lots of flack for having a law doing this. And further more, Obummer has told these 5 million at least 29 times they could keep their policy. When called on this, Obummer said he didn’t say that. Now that a minor revolt has happened with the losers, the Reps and Senators seeing what they voted for, they were going to answer for. So, Obummer did what he has done a number of times, unilaterally changed the law. However, instead of doing what he usually does in the middle of the night, he did in the daylight, and poorly. Now Obummer is losing his allies in the Press, in Congress, and has lost the trust of the public.

This is reminding more and more of Nixon. We do have what looks like a probable Constitutional Crisis.

Obamacare is Fascism. There’s no way around it.

Posted by DNW on 2013/11/12

It’s a striking fact that the predicate of Obamacare, i.e., the premise of a redistributionist implementation of what John Rawls approvingly called, a “commitment to a shared fate” is simply, and unequivocally, fascist.

This “shared fate” social obligation, is the very principle behind Obamacare; and is rhetorically traceable among others, to the Fascist in Chief himself.

Hyperventilating lefty professors, so fond of directing the charge of “fascist” at others for whatever rhetorical effect they imagine they can leverage out of it, will continue to busily construct their self-serving political taxonomies based on wish-fulfillment listings of the supposed attributes essential to a fascist attitude and polity. These attributes, they claim, invariably involve hostility to foreigners, or the arts, or minorities.

Yet a libertarian polity or anarchist system of association with a population that manifests these three traits on average, would not thereby be transformed into a fascist solidarity or corporatist state. Something more “positive” must be added without which the fascist state cannot logically or coherently be said to officially exist.

Recall here Obama’s problem with our current charter of negative (negatively defined) liberties. The problem as he sees it, is that it defines what you are free from, not what you must do for whom, or what you are entitled to expect from others.

The individual mandate with its across the board legal transformation of freeborn men and women into social resources unconditionally available to the government for the support and maintenance of a redistributive social solidarity state, is that necessary addition. It’s what the fascist left seeks to implement. And as such it’s the manifest essence of the fascist concept.

Recall that this Obamacare individual mandate claim upon the individual is not temporary, nor based upon the necessity of a repulsion of foreign invaders by all citizens, nor upon the need to distributively protect all from some contagion that knows no distinctions of person. It is instead, based upon the presumption of one’s open-ended duty to sacrifice one’s own opportunities and life choices in order to indemnify others against the costs and consequences of being themselves.

It’s emotionally difficult – despite the occasional rhetorical exercise by those like myself warning of a possibility to the contrary – for many of us, myself included, to face the fact that people whom one has heretofore considered as probable moral fellows, are not in fact anything of the kind. Obamacare has now brought this into the sharpest relief.

They, its advocates, have now willingly and overtly become people who in active and current fact, as well as in prior principle, operate off the principle that they will now recognize no limit to their claims upon other human beings for the sake of that secularized social sodality regime which they crave, and which they feel will benefit themselves through the coerced access they gain to your life energies and expenditures.

It, sadly, is therefore not at all hyperbolic to state that the Democrats in Congress who voted for Obamacare and the individual mandate were seeking to institute or to further an already incipient social fascism in the United States. The Democrats should just rename themselves the Fascist Party, and have done with it.

This Obamacare state of affairs has long been the obvious goal of left-wing ideologues: to construct a default situation wherein there preexists a sociopolitical presumption that the individual exists for the utility of others.

The Democrat party has now explicitly advanced and endorsed this premise through Obamacare. Whether the impulse further progresses to the social  or state ownership of some or all productive resources or tools of production, as in full blown socialism, is besides the point. The point is that man has now been made by law, and by virtue of his mere existence, into a social resource upon which the state has a legally unlimited claim.

The definitional lines are drawn, and the sides chosen. How friends and relatives will react to being told to their faces that they are fascist, remains to be seen. My guess is that they could not care less what they are, or are called, as long as they get what they want out of others.

They like it that way.

And that, is not a matter of mere politics, but includes something that might almost be seen as a “spiritual dimension”.

 

Note: I wrote this out earlier today on the fly, and hit “post” rather than “save”. I’ve made a few of what I think should be improvements in clarity and precision. The labored language … well, that, I can do nothing about. LOL.

Veterans Day

Posted by DNW on 2013/11/11

I don’t intend to post up any extensive ruminations for Veterans Day. The “blogosphere” will be filled to brimming with retrospectives on the holiday, and on the soldiers, sailors, and airmen, who are veterans of the armed services.

Some significant attention will probably be given to the subject of the dwindling number of WWII veterans still among us.

I thought I would take the occasion to post a few images taken by, and of, a couple of that era’s veterans: brothers, who could not be any closer than they are, nor mean any more to me, than they already do.

Lest we forget.

Too Damn Little, Too Damn Late, Does NOTHING, Should Resign for the Country’s biggest Screw Up.

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/08

BFD, BO says I’m sorry. He’s sorry all right, he’s a sorry sack of Bovine Feces. He’s not going to roll back the clock, but he wants to “help”. If OBUMMERCARE is help, no thanks, you’ve helped screw this country enough. If BO was that so damn sorry, he should resign in DISCRACE for being the worst piece of Bovine Feces every to inhabit the Dark House. By not resigning, his words are more hollow than his head. Do us all a favor QUIT NOW. Your apology means NOTHING, Not A Damn Thing since you and your court jesters knew Obummercare was CRAP three Years ago.

Exclusive: Obama personally apologizes for Americans losing health coverage
By Chuck Todd, NBC News
President Obama said Thursday that he is “sorry” that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked.

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”

In a wide-ranging interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, President Obama discusses implementation of the Affordable Care Act, rollout of the healthcare website, NSA spying, Iran and keeping Joe Biden as his running mate.

Obama’s comments come 10 days after NBC News’ Lisa Myers reported that the administration has known since the summer of 2010 that millions of Americans could lose their insurance under the law.
