    “Good enough for a snake.”-Dr. Wong.
    Truer words have never been spoken.

    Dr.Wrong mentioned a possible good will moment by Trump supporting Obama’s pick for Supreme Court. Honestly? The good Doctor may want to invest in a truck load of honey-crisp crickets because his suggestion is worse than his polling predictions.

    CNN and snakes. A reflection of the liberal class.

  • Take your meds. It is possible to buy bugs to put on chocolate cookies. My kids did this in a local entomyogy class for kids. Very tolerable. It is likely possible to go to Chinatown and purchase something as well, but I’m not entirely sure about Chinese cuisine. In Japan, I ate these crickets that were coated with a kind of teriyaki BBQ sauce. It wasn’t too bad.

    Now, if Dr. Wong had wanted to do something truly impressive: Japanese “nato”-basically slimy, rotten, soy beans. Roughly 50% of the Japanese population can’t stand it. 100% will try to convince the unsuspecting “gaijin” it is the most Japanese thing to eat, and will watch you carefully to see if you can get it within arms length of your nose. With enough mustard and a lot of sake, it can be accomplished.

Hillary Harangue Open Thread

Friday, July 29, AD 2016

 

Like her hubby, I decided that the time I would have devoted to watching her speech was best used by me for sleep.  I did joke with my son that if we ever had to inflict torture on  adversaries in some sort of Mad Max post apocalyptic society, we could probably do worse than tying them up, placing them in a room, put the video of this speech on a recurring loop, and come back after twenty-four hours.  In any event post your reactions in the comboxes.  I have heard that she attacked Trump which strikes me as necessary but probably the wrong strategy.  Attacking Trump will allow him to dominate the next news cycle with answers, and if there is one thing I have learned about Trump this year, he thrives on bad publicity that would devastate other politicians.

  • To be coerced into using my money, tax dollars, to kill some woman’s baby in her womb is scandalous and unacceptable.

    We CAN NOT go along with this abuse of power and I don’t know what the alternatives will be if Mrs. Pathetic gets her wish. “Let’s go out there and make it happen,”-HC… promoting free abortions.

    If all Catholics were only united on this issue and we with Protestant Christians make a decision to counter any offensive Madame Benghazi spearheads, then the breakdown of the Beast will begin.

    The hope? Let’s make sure she doesn’t get her wish.

  • Luckily, a John Wayne movie, “Flying Tigers” was on TV. And after that, “The Sands of Iwo Jima,” was played.

    The one-minute I saw was where she shrieked that if Trump doesn’t need to repay his loans (total BS), she’s going to “take care” (total BS – and she’ll spend your $$$) of student loans. It’s all, 100% pandering. Hillary says she’ll will repay (with your money) student loans because the (bubble) higher education industry is a main source of funding, propaganda, and brain-washed imbeciles supporting her 100% BS.

    Comment of the week CAM! Take ‘er away Sam!

  • “Deeply held religious beliefs and cultural codes must be changed to accommodate women’s health care.” Hillary Clinton.
    Three fourths of the states must ratify any change in our Constitution. Any attempt to change The First Amendment’s freedom of religion and impose a one world godless government denies man’s rational, immortal human soul, man’s sovereign personhood and man’s conscience. Any change in The First Amendment redefines the human being as a beast of burden to the state. Redefining man as a beast of burden to the state is taxation without representation. Redefining man as a beast of burden to the state eliminates The United States as a Constitutional Republic and imposes a totalitarian form of atheistic rule antithetical to The First Amendment, the acknowledgement of God as “their Creator” and the human being as having sovereign personhood. Government does not choose for the sovereign person. The sovereign person, in exercising his free will and rational judgment, chooses truth for himself. With truth as his foundation, a free man institutes his government upon Founding Principles.
    Any violation of our Founding Principles is a miscarriage of Justice. Depending upon the gravity of the miscarriage of Justice, the violation may be tried as treason. More than 60,000,000 unborn human souls are being scraped from the womb. America’s constitutional Posterity is being annihilated. Genocide is treason against the American people.

  • Hillary’s comparison of republicans to barking dogs compares conservatives trying to tell people about her malfeasance to dogs barking. In her mind a barking dog is to be ignored as non consequential, and of course, as not-as-smart as herself.
    .
    it’s a terrible comparison– no comparison really- barking dogs to the OT prophets
    .
    BUT the prophets were also under appreciated for all their efforts “because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart.” – Ezekiel 3:7b
    And the prophecy of Ezekiel holds true: “Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity…”

  • sorry about switching gears like that- I will try to do better

  • Hillary should probably avoid drawing comparisons with dogs in any context. Just sayin’

  • I agree 100% with everything Suz just said!

    Throw the Madame a bone!

  • To Suz and Philip:
    .
    As I recall, another Jezebel met her demise for having arranged the murder of righteous Naboth the Jezreelite in order to confiscate his vineyard for her own, and her husband King Ahab conspired with her. Oh how history repeats itself with William Jefferson and Hillary Rodham Clinton!
    .
    That theft and murder of course met with God’s expressed displeasure, and He sent the prophet Elijah to warn her of her coming fate. Whether she survived being pushed out the window to actually see the horses’ hooves of justice that would trample her into the ground and the canine jaws of death that would eat her wicked body, or was mercifully granted instant demise as her blood splattered on the way down the wall to that sudden stop is a point of conjecture, but not even the dogs would eat her murderous thieving hands and feet, and her lying skull. Yes, Sacred Scripture is revealingly graphic, a lesson Livia Drusilla Augusta Caesar would do well to internalize for repentance.

  • When man sins, he falls beneath the animals. Animals are innocent not having but instinct on which to rely. When man sins he becomes a demon like unto his sins. Demons are legion as are man’s sins. It is often heard that man starts looking like his sins. My daughter’s two dogs, rescue animals, trained as therapy dogs instinctively know when I am not well and correspondingly suffer with me. even to putting their heads on my breast and whimpering.
    Hillary, Obama and the like especially that communist Sanders fall to the demons with their tyranny and totalitarianism, especially their pride. They will probably become death bed converts, if we, the people, work hard enough to disable their evil and wicked agenda.

No foolin’, my daughter’s dogs know when she is around the corner coming home, just in time for me to unlock the door. Could be our guardian angels as “familiars” caring for us.

  • Very disappointing!

    How can you make light of the demonic alien pigs from space? Oh sure, they seem harmless… Dr. Strange Pork…Princess Piggy.

    It only took them thirty two years to integrate into our culture. To be accepted wasn’t enough for them. They had to gain power. After all they had their diabolical agenda to advance.

    In just thirty two years they have succeeded in establishing laws that allow pigs to legally marry other pigs. That humans must use the same public bathrooms as pigs. Soon, the Nation will be forced into accepting Pig Human lifestyles. Pig Human marriages and special treatment for them must be established and respected.

Unfortunately one day the bell returned while he was distracted and knocked him from the bell area all the way down to the cobble stone street below. A crowd gathered and many yelled, ” Who is he…who is he?”
    A man came forward, looked at the deceased bell ringer and said, ” I don’t know his name…but his face really rings a bell.”

    As for me, I always gain weight during fasting seasons, which in the Byz Church is Lent and Philips Fast (aka Advent.) Then I loose it when we can eat normally again.

  • DJH: I always gain ten pounds when I go on a diet or fast. That is when I start paying attention to what I eat. And paying attention to what one eats is a good thing. Also not having to see oneself as others see oneself is a grace.
    Why is Pope Francis adamant about climate change and the accompanying science, while ignoring wholesale the DNA science of the newly begotten. People as pollution and the power to disenfranchise persons of their civil rights as citizens and dispose of people as in the final solution by addressing their freedom in a group wherein some member may be executed while the group remains is communism. Our Constitution addresses persons as individuals, one person at a time, born and unborn.
    Obama has no authority outside of the Constitution. When Obama acts outside of the Constitution, Obama acts as a private citizen who impeaches himself.
    Climate Change betrays America’s sovereignty by making our sovereignty subject to the UN and gives the UN power to tax, impose fines and confiscate property that is not theirs. Piracy is still illegal.
    Why Pope Francis supports this form of larceny on a global scale is confusing.

  • In other news, Pope Francis declared that “The problem is fundamentalism. I have no problem with Muslims; Muslims are friends of mine. They didn’t sack Rome, did they? But you know who did? It was the Germans! They’re the ones you’ve got to watch out for.” He later excommunicated Cardinal Kasper.

  • Just heard today that Pope Francis is about to ban the execution of capital punishment for homicide in the first degree.
    Divine Mercy or human mercy?
    The corporal works of mercy call for visiting the imprisoned. The corporal work of mercy does not call for releasing unrepentant murders or un-rehabilitated criminals. The ban on Capital Punishment for homicide in the first degree denies the human soul of the murderer, his eternal destiny and the possibility of his repentance, to his undoing. The ban on Capital Punishment for homicide in the first degree invents unequal Justice for the victim and prejudice in favor of the murderer. The victim is dead. The murderer must join his victim.
    The murderer meets his rejected virtues on the gallows when the murderer is brought to equal Justice. The executioner operates through power of attorney of the condemned murderer.
    I can forgive my murderer. I cannot forgive your murderer without becoming an accessory after the fact. For the state to prohibit the execution of Capital Punishment for murderers for homicide in the first degree makes the state liable for any consequent homicide perpetrated by the aforementioned murderer, and brings guilt on the state for not imposing capital punishment, equal Justice, as a deterrent in the first murder.
    Priests and consecrated souls have consecrated themselves to God and as consecrated souls do not partake of the state’s job of executing persons for homicide in the first degree. This includes Pope Francis. Pope Francis’ call for a ban on the execution of Capital Punishment for murder in the first degree is the imposition of atheism and denies the human being’s immortal soul and eternal life. In addition, a ban on capital punishment violates equal Justice.

9 Responses to Unsung Hero Open Thread

  • Driving home from downtown today, I saw a heavy set man in a wheelchair, obviously handicapped, struggling to wheel himself backwards up a steep hill. I was not going in his direction, but as I was making a turn, my grandson and I said a prayer for him. There were able-bodied men walking on the sidewalk with no offers of assistance. My grandson and I were appalled.

    Your clip above reminded me of this paragraph from Pope Benedict’s DEUS CARITAS EST:

    b) Love—caritas—will always prove necessary, even in the most just society. There is no ordering of the State so just that it can eliminate the need for a service of love. Whoever wants to eliminate love is preparing to eliminate man as such. There will always be suffering which cries out for consolation and help. There will always be loneliness. There will always be situations of material need where help in the form of concrete love of neighbour is indispensable.[20] The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person—every person—needs: namely, loving personal concern. We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything, but a State which, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, generously acknowledges and supports initiatives arising from the different social forces and combines spontaneity with closeness to those in need. The Church is one of those living forces: she is alive with the love enkindled by the Spirit of Christ. This love does not simply offer people material help, but refreshment and care for their souls, something which often is even more necessary than material support. In the end, the claim that just social structures would make works of charity superfluous masks a materialist conception of man: the mistaken notion that man can live “by bread alone” (Mt 4:4; cf. Dt 8:3)—a conviction that demeans man and ultimately disregards all that is specifically human.

  • Every hero is an unsung hero in that a true hero doesn’t see himself as a hero.

  • The Supreme Court for the United States of America told the atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair that: “she could go her own way” in Engel v. vitale in 1962. The Main Stream Mob bannered “PRAYER BAN” Are you not laughing yet? “or prohibit the free exercise thereof” The First Amendment obliterates atheism. The atheist must be tolerated, not given the key to the city.
    With God removed from the public square, which by the way is owned in joint and common tenancy by each and every every citizen, you own it all and I own it all, unalienable human rights endowed by “their Creator” could be vanquished, annihilated, eradicated and violated by the Main Stream Mob. Are you not laughing yet? to be continued. I wanted to be a comedianne. are you laughing yet?

  • It’s a reality that not all on earth will be inhabitants of Heaven. “You have not chosen me, I have chosen you.” And even then we run the risk of ditching grace and following the damned.

    To laugh at this world, a place where murder is commonly known as woman’s reproductive health, is unrealistic. How can we enjoy the destruction of society unless we too become numb to sin. The last laugh will not be Lucifer’s nor his puppets in politic’s. They will not enjoy the end.

    When they are finally cast into the pit and the sorrowful who keep the commandments and fight the good fight look upon that day, they will rejoice and be glad. For they have run the race well. They will no longer be sad, nor cry tears. They will enjoy the beauty and perpetual joy that was promised them from the Son of God, the laughing Jesus.

    That terrible and great day is coming.

    Woe to them who laugh at the believers of God. Who laugh at the faithful standing and praying in front of abortion mills. Who laugh at the protesters rallying for God’s Marriage.
    Who laugh at the blasphemous jokes told by late night hooligans.

    Jesus doesn’t laugh at the loosing of souls to Satan. He does laugh and smile at the thought of YOU being with him forever!
    He loves you so much fellow believer.

  • On a positive note, the featured story in this week’s The Arlington Catholic Herald:
    ‘Love always wins’ – A Manassas abortion clinic closes after years of peaceful protests, a number of conversions.
    One of the conversions was a lapsed Catholic abortionist who met with a priest on Divine Mercy Sunday. He hasn’t performed an abortion since and now is delivering babies.
    In Virginia two abortion clinics have closed in the last two years. The closings are attributed to the prayers of pro-life protestors and the Holy Spirit.

  • So-called “legal” abortion will end in this nation, be it by peaceful means or otherwise (God may send a wake up call louder than 9/11), but it will end.

    For over 900 years Germans craved Polish territory, invading, partitioning, suppressing Poles, and ALWAYS being resisted. Heterodox German hierarchy are seeking to wreck Church teaching with their allies and substitute their own garbage in place. The Polish bishops are already resisting.

    Things change…and stay the same.

  • Thank you, Philip. Thank you, Pinky. Thank you, Cam. Thank you, Penguins Fan. Thank you, Donald McCleary.
    Continue as I must:
    The imposition of atheism as a religion on “We the people”, redefined the First Amendment civil right to freedom of religion as being no freedom of religion, the relationship with God, no freedom of speech with God, no freedom of press with God, no freedom of peaceable assembly with God nor free association with God. Without the necessary three quarters of the states ratifying any change in the Constitution and the First Amendment, the fully ratified freedom of religion was relegated to an arbitrary interpretation of Freedom of Religion by Hugo Black who, as a Supreme Court “Justice” hated religion and “We the people” who practiced our freedom of religion.

    In “Everson v. Board of Education”: Taxes are used to support the citizen and his First Amendment freedom, a choice made and enjoyed by the sovereign citizen. This is not the imposition of the religion of the citizen on the people and is not the violation of the anti-establishment clause. This is the acknowledgement of the citizen’s freedom and his participation in government. This is the basis for the toleration of atheists. Atheism is unconstitutional. Atheists, as human beings, must be tolerated. Rulings that omit the sovereign personhood of the taxpayer are taxation without representation.

    In addition, education is mandated for all minor children by the state. Therefore, paying for transportation to their education does not constitute establishment of their religion. It actually constitutes the sovereignty of the citizen, who constitutes the state, and the state laws to education. This is also true for educational vouchers which acknowledge the sovereign citizen’s freedom of choice in religion and in what and who will educate his children, a choice that only the parents can make for their children entrusted to their care by “their Creator”, God. The rest is kidnapping and rape of the innocent child’s soul by the state, and the abrogation of the child’s parental authority.

    In Engle v. Vitale in 1962, the Supreme Court forbade public schools teachers to lead a short prayer as the Court ruled that this was establishment of religion. This is true only if the state owns the teacher, body and soul. The teacher prayers as a sovereign person, a citizen of the state as “We the people” pray. Every human being is dying and may be drawing his last breath. To deny his death and his access to his finally making his peace in his soul is complete monstrosity.

    Engel v. Vitale denied the human being, as sovereign citizen, his human, rational, immortal soul. Engle v. Vitale redefined the human person as having no soul, and evil fulfilled the vacuum.

  • Indulge me more:
    THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION ON HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE UNITED NATIONS . DECEMBER 1948.
    PREAMBLE
    “Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
    Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,
    Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law..”

    The trouble with the Universal Declaration on Human Rights of the United Nations is that it refuses to acknowledge God as “their Creator” and Endower of all unalienable human rights. This document attributes all freedom and “inalienable” human rights to a finite and fallible community. It seems that when the community dies, all “inalienable human rights” die with it, but it does acknowledge mankind’s “conscience”. This is more than Kim Davis, Aaron Klein and Barronelle Stutzman got from the Court for refraining to indulge in the “no gender marriage” of the Obergefell court. A Court that neutered all mankind.

    I challenge any and all atheists to take a grain of wheat and cause it to germinate and grow without God’s sun and water “…the laws of nature and nature’s God” The Declaration of Independence.

    He, who lives in the Lord, is above the law. He, who lives in the devil, has no law.

  • The Constitution is predicated on the individual sovereign person who constitutes government and for whom our founding principles were laid.
    Sovereign personhood is endowed and infused at procreation by “their Creator”, the Person of God, with free will, the image of God in the person, freedom, intellect, reason, conscience, talent, intuition and immortality, the eternal life with God for obedience, in the hereafter, forever. These are some of the intangibles, the transcendent qualities of the human being destined to exist in eternity forever. The color of skin, hair, height, weight, race and relations are tangibles. These may be documented by the state as vital statistics. The state tries to measure the intangibles, but cannot get past immortality.
    Unfortunately, since atheism is being imposed by the government through the Courts, the intangibles that point to an infinite, all loving God are being redefined and relegated into nothingness.
    The Constitution is predicated on the sovereign person, who constitutes the government. The individual citizen’s sovereign personhood is created, infused and established by “their Creator”, God. Therefore, our Constitution is predicated on the will of “their Creator”, God, infinite goodness.
    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations says that man’s human rights, his sovereign personhood, his veritable human soul is infused by his community at his birth. So, the vital statistics administered by the state, his citizenship, his race and color of skin are begotten of the community. From WHOM has the community gotten its sovereignty and personhood to endow another person? The question is answered by a half truth. The community gets its sovereignty from the sovereign person and the sovereign person gets his sovereign personhood from the community. The dizzying heights and circular reasoning still does not supply the truth about WHO creates the rational, intellectual and immortal human soul and his destiny in eternity. WHO is the PRIME MOVER, the person WHO begat the first sovereign person?
    “We, the people respect our ancestors and hope in our constitutional posterity, and pray that our posterity achieve an higher civilization in their pursuit of Happiness. However, the constitution must be taken in its entirety. One Amendment cannot repudiate or eradicate another Amendment. The constitution cannot contradict itself. For the Fourteenth Amendment to be realized, the First Amendment must be acknowledged and fulfilled.
    It is called an indult: Suffering sodomy instead of homicide, tolerating sodomy rather than mass murder. A living sodomite has an opportunity to relinquish his addiction to lust and turn himself into a free human being, created in original innocence and virginity and called to remain in original innocence and virginity.
    In every event, atheism is unconstitutional. Atheism may not be imposed on a people, a constitutional republic. God is a sovereign Person and cannot be exiled or driven from the public square, which all citizens own in joint and common tenancy, without three quarters of the states ratifying any change in our constitution and due process for the person of God. What crime has God committed that is the reason the God is exiled from our nation? That an individual atheist was “offended” is an opinion. Every person has an opinion. This is the reason why three quarters of the states must ratify any change in the constitutional structure of our First Amendment and the principle of separation of church and state.
    The principle of separation of church and state forbids any entity or person from objecting to another person’s objection to sodomy or any other evil. The principle of self-preservation and self defense against an insidious evil invading the private, intimate relationship a person has with his “Creator” proscribed and protected in the First Amendment “or prohibit the free exercise thereof,” cannot be abrogated. “their Creator” is perfect love and perfect Justice and therefore any relationship with God can only bring Divine Providence and prosperity, “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our (constitutional) posterity.” The Preamble
    The state cannot own the person or the person’s immortal rational human soul or the person’s destiny and/or his pursuit of Happiness. It is most degrading to be forced to support sodomites in their descent into hell or cannibals or atheists in their rejection of the only joy and Beauty in creation.
    James 1: 27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
    Sodomites, cannibals and atheists are not “unstained from the world.”

  • Since Alaska became a state, Mt. McKinley ought to bear the name of a real human being as opposed to some Eskimo or Hindu or pagan god. A person is always better than the personification of The High One.
    Denali in Hindu is an elephant headed god. Read that Oklahoma is planning a statue of a monkey god. . G. K. Chesterton was correct when he said that when man rejects God, he will believe in everything… not with my tax dollars.

Starry, Starry Night Open Thread

Sunday, August 9, AD 2015

 

Our usual open thread rules apply:  be concise, be charitable and, above all, be amusing.  Contrary to my usual practice I will suggest a possible topic.  Does anyone think that the mullahs are not playing us for fools in regard to the proposed Iran deal?  Does anyone think that the purpose of the Iran deal in the eyes of Obama is to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, rather than stopping the US from doing anything meaningful about Iran obtaining nuclear weapons?

  • Setting aside Mullahs for the moment, the pic reminds me of that great Van Gogh exhibit now at the Sterling and Francine Art Institute in Williamstown mass. It’s worth the trip.

    I have no evidence of Obama’s motives, but his actions and deceitful words cannot but induce rational people to doubt all that he says. I still ponder if Putin isn’t just acting on Obama’s flexibility.

  • There are three types of demokrats: Those with hatred for Americans and their way of life; those with extreme hatred for America; and those delusional, anti-Constitution idiots (with sh!t for brains} that believe they must rule everybody and every thing, e.g. PC academia, Hillary and Obama.
    .
    It is extremely rare that someone sucks at everything. Obama does. The most dangerous threat to America is the expanding mass of imbeciles that – birds of a feather – vote for losers like Obama and Hillary.

  • The purpose is to give Iran nukes so the US can never use ground troops anywhere in the Mideast again. This is his view of the world–American military mperialism must be stopped, Lady Liberty shackled. If Iran nukes Israel, well that’s a two-fer.

  • Frank Marshall Davis
    enough said.

  • Government is the name we give to the crimes we commit together.

    Democracy is when 52 million people vote to take money and stuff from 50 million other people.

    Hillary in Leavenworth Prison in ’16! Her security breaches are at least 100,000-times more than retired General Petraeus’ pillow talk. .

  • Frank Marshall Davis enough said.

    Frank Marshall Davis was a union official turned stationary merchant who was in Stanley Dunham’s circle of friends ca. 1971. Enough said about what?

  • The Chicago Star’s Frank Marshall Davis.
    Communist Editor and chief.
    Obama’s mentor.

    ( ? )

    Enough said, unless the information I have is incorrect. Do tell.

  • Dr Who and Vincent Van Gogh:

    Barack Hussein Obama – traitor to the nation, the Manchurian President.

    The mad Mullahs of Iran – enemies of humanity.

    I keep on hoping Dr Who will show up and expose liberals and Islamists as Cybermen and Daleks in disguise, and he will rescue us.

    Sadly that’s science fiction. Reality is so much stranger.

  • Thank you Phillip, however I acknowledge the well read contributors to tac, including Art Deco. I try to remember to be careful what one reads and believe’s.

    The Blaze wasn’t my resource.

    I was going from memory from a few years ago. Probably the Obama’s America 2016 movie…of which I’m not proud to reveal.

  • Philip,

    As with anything, sources may be wrong. The Blaze may be wrong about Davis being a communist and a significant influence in Obama’s formation. There are other sources thought they in turn may be wrong:

    http://www.aim.org/aim-column/frank-marshall-davis-exposed/

    But, far our source are occasionally right. John Edwards for example.

  • The American Spectator in 2012 painted FMD as communist and editor of rag.
    I recall the source.

    Does it prove anything.
    No.
    I have a dislike for him, Obama, and it’s earned based upon his arrogance and overreach. HHS mandate, P.P. tax funding initiatives and his not identifying the unborn as marginalized people.

  • Little doubt that Frank Marshall Davis was a member of the Communist Party. The Wikipedia editors have insisted on cleansing that from his biography, but the information circulating about his Communist Party membership is too precise to be ignored. He also sold stationary, played checkers, and smoked dope (by some accounts). There are a certain number of knuckleheads knocking about who fancy that he’s the president’s sire, not because there’s any reason to believe he is, but because simply adhering to occam’s razor renders one an indistinct element of the sheeple and not someone in the know.

    My point is (1) that there were indubitably quite a mass of people in the Dunhams; circle of friends. (2) People are not their political views, (3) the Communist Party’s membership rolls contracted by 85% between 1947 and 1972 (i.e. there were a great many more disaffected Communists in 1971 than people with an abiding attachment to Communism), and (4) there is not a great deal of evidence as to what influence Davis might have had on Obama.

    There are a great many people in fora like this who beclown themselves yapping about ‘Marxism’ and ‘cultural Marxism’, but Obama shows little or no evidence of trafficking in systems of social theory or of having any intellectual interests at all. His inclinations are not quite bog standard in the Democratic Party; more bog standard with a tinge of the sort of attitudes (and that’s what they are) traded in by cretins like Victor Navasky. He’s been in office for six years and change. What you see is what you get.

  • Yes I think they are playing us for fools. I think they underestimate American though ant if we can last through this presidency what looks like a good bet for their side right now, could turn around. After watching both the debates last week I have a great deal of hope – Lots of good candidates who I think will not be played for fools.

  • In response to the second question, I think our president’s true colors are showing and that they coordinate very well with the colors shown above in Starry Starry Night (at least it looks more green than anything else on my screen)

  • ok strike that

  • My favorite thing about the Obama reign was the racist healing. He promised hope. He brought hate.
