Money and Political Correctness

April 21st, 2016 . by Cary

It would appear that the liberal/progressive/Politically Correct crowd has finally gotten something they have been clamoring for – a female on contemporary paper currency.

Martha Washington was on this country’s paper currency in the 1800s, so it won’t be the first time a female has appeared on our paper currency, and since Sacagewea and Susan B. Anthony have been on dollar coins, that frontier has been breached in recent times and has escaped the attention of the lib/prog/PC crowd.

There was talk about removing Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill and replacing him with a Female To Be Named Later, but cooler heads prevailed, and an “easier” target for the lib/prog/PC crowd was soon acquired – that slave owning, parameter ignoring, native-peoples-killing President Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill. After all, he was for a lot of things the current lib/prog/PC(/history ignorant) crowd is against – slaves, usurping the lands of native peoples, relocating and/or killing said native peoples, and … being a Democrat.

No, wait – that last part is OK, but the other things are bad, so we have to get rid of Jackson from the $20 bill.

Now on to the more important part of this progression – who should be selected to replace Jackson? The historical female figure should show strength, and courage, and have been instrumental in making a huge, impactful change on the very fabric of this country. Sacagewea and Susan B. Anthony had already been chosen from other projects, so who else would there be? Let’s see – Margaret Sanger, Democrat, founder of Planned Parenthood – no, wait, it’s been pretty obvious that her aim was to remove the Black population by aborting mostly black babies. That wouldn’t send the right message. Christa McAuliffe – hey, she was a teacher, was selected to represent teachers in the NASA space program, died in that service – wait, no, she’s white. That’s really not the right message.

I know – Harriet Tubman! She ran the Underground Railroad, moving slaves from the south to the north! She helped slaves escape the oppression of mean old whitey! This is perfect!

(interesting side note – the people group that exported slaves from Africa were black tribal chiefs who sold conquered tribes to black slave traders, who then sailed them with no regard to their well being to the young United States, where they were first sold to a black land owner)

Which brings us to the link portion of the story – apparently the lib/prog/PC(history ignorant) crowd overlooked a few things about Harriet – as discussed in this article at The Patriot Post, she trusted wholly in God, carried a pistol, and served as a scout, spy, and nurse for the Union Army. Good thing they’re all ignorant of history – looks like we get a person of strong conservative beliefs on the most-used paper currency. Of course, we have to wait until 2030 before we start seing them, but I think it will be well worth the wait.

Unless one of the lib/prog/PC crowd cracks an actual history book between now and then …

Disney and NFL Teaming Up

March 29th, 2016 . by Cary

It would appear that the Walt Disney Company and the National Football League are using their financial power to force a state’s legislation to infringe on the First Amendment of a particular religious group. This link will take you to the story.

Now, as my readers know, I am a Christian. My beliefs state that marriage is between one man and one woman. Forcing someone to participate in an event they do not wish to be a part of can only lead to trouble. It would appear that the Gay Agenda is pushing ever closer to forcing Christians to go against their faith and their beliefs to acknowledge and “welcome” gay marriage into their midst.

It seems that the bottom line here is that the gays want the Christians to stop being Christian. (notice the gays are not forcing the muslims to stop being muslim …) If the only reason to get a member of the clergy to marry them was to make the marriage “official”, then the gays could, in fact, start their own religion and ordain their own clergy, leaving the Christians out of the whole ordeal. Since the objective is to stifle the Christians, and not have to hear how the actions of the gays are not in accordance with God’s laws, the gays will not start their own religion, and they will not ordain their own clergy – they want to corrupt the existing clergy.

Meanwhile, Disney and the NFL want Georgia to stop being so mean by protecting the rights of citizens. They want Georgia Governor Nathan Deal to not allow House Bill 757 to pass into law. House Bill 757, also known as the Pastor Protection Act, would ensure that religious officials are not required by law to participate in gay marriage ceremonies that go against their beliefs. It also states that it wants to “protect property owners which are religious organizations against infringement of religious freedom.” You know, the mean old Christians …

TMBWitW and I have decided to stop giving Disney our hard earned money. No more Disneyland, no more Marvel movies, and no more Star Wars purchases. (wait, what?)

The NFL? I haven’t given them any of my money for many, many years. Doesn’t look like I’ll be starting again any time soon.

The Bill of Rights is for all people, not just a select few. Freedom OF Religion is a right, the ability to practice your religion without outside interference is codified in that Bill of Rights. The ability to force people to act against their beliefs and their will? Not so much.

That’s what the second amendment is designed to protect against.

No Casualties In Massive Civil Disobedience

December 31st, 2015 . by Cary

Ever since Sunday evening, December 27th, there was a massive civil disobedience happening in Southern California. The body count was in the zeros, and many laws were broken – on purpose! – in order to prove a point.

From all non-reports, a mentally stable, white, male, Christian was in the area of San Diego for more than four days, blatantly breaking all sorts of California gun control laws, including transporting a loaded “assault weapon” (semi-automatic large caliber pistol) on state and federal highways in the state of California, possessing a loaded “assault weapon” without permission from the state of California, having a “high capacity” magazine in said “assault weapon”, having more than ten rounds in said “high capacity” magazine in said “assault weapon”, and having a round chambered in said “assault weapon” the entire time this was happening. Reports indicate that the mentally stable, white, male, Christian was in several venues where a great deal of harm could have been committed, if the mentally stable, white, male, Christian were so inclined; those locations including several museums, open air plazas, and the San Diego Zoo.

A source close to the mentally stable, white, male, Christian says that the perpetrator, who is allowed in his home state to act in this manner without any type of restriction or license, acted no differently than he did at home; the source has said “It was if he just ignored all the hoopla and had the audacity to act as though he had the God-given right to protect himself and those around him.” (editor’s emphasis)

No passer-by noticed he was armed, no police officers were called, and no violence was reported.

The point of all this? It’s only when someone is bent on terrorizing others that the issues of weapon choice, size, capacity, and actions are seen as “bad” – because as soon as the mentally stable, white, male, Christian crossed the Colorado River traveling west bound the laws considered him to be acting in a felonious manner; likewise, as soon as the Colorado was crossed in an east bound direction he was acting within the laws of the land.

Taxed Enough Already

September 29th, 2015 . by Cary


“Every Republican tax-reform plan should be rooted in this reality: If you are going to have federal spending that is 21 percent of GDP, then you can have a.) taxes that are 21 percent of GDP; b.) deficits. There is no c. If, on the other hand, you have a credible program for reducing spending to 17 or 18 percent of GDP, which is where taxes have been coming in, please do share it.” —National Review’s Kevin Williamson

I’ll go one step further – if your tax rate is 17 -18% of the GDP, it’s too high. You are strangling the flow of commerce and economics. If, however, a person could keep all that they earn, and only pay a consumption tax on durable goods, that would be the fairest way to collect taxes. If you don’t buy a lot of durable goods, you don’t pay a lot of taxes. If you buy a lot of durable goods, you pay more taxes. That would ensure everyone pays taxes, according to their income bracket, without a lot of complex forms and formulas, and very little need of an entire bureaucratic arm of the government to track, collect, and penalize.

There is actually a House resolution stuck in the House Committee on Ways and Means regarding this very idea, the FairTax Act of 2015. It was sponsored by Representative Rob Woodall, from Georgia. Why is stuck in committee? Because it calls for abolishing the IRS by 2019, and has a sunset clause that will cancel the FairTax if the 16th amendment is not repealed within seven years of H.R. 25 becoming law. It also only funds a very small portion of the government – as it should. A lot of the current activities of the government would, by necessity, need to be done away with. Naturally, because it strikes at so many sacred cows, the prostitutes – I mean, the Members of Congress most affect by this act are stalling it.

Calls to your representatives urging them to push for the passage of H.R. 25, the FairTax act of 2015, would be greatly helpful.

The Dark Side … of Us.

September 24th, 2015 . by Cary

There is some language in the bottom of this article.

My first question when a video of this nature appears is: Why were the low-lifes FILMING this and not INTERVENING? Really? You think getting “likes” on YouTube is more important than helping your fellow man?

Go away from me, I don’t want anything to do with your brand of “humanity”.
