Merry Christmas Somalia

I try to look at mainstream media as little as possible for a variety of reasons; mostly to reduce my stress level. With that said, today online I caught the title, "Somalia bans Christmas." I read the article, and it appears that the government has put a ban on celebrating Christmas because it is 'contrary to Islamic culture' and could theoretically 'damage the faith of the Muslim community.'

I was going to look at three points, but realized they each would need a separate post. Lets just look at one in summary, the point noted last that the celebration of Christmas could "damage the faith of the Muslim community."

How I ask, could someone else celebrating another Holliday be damaging to your faith? If it is possible to fall away from your faith because someone else is celebrating a separate holiday, I would question the validity of that faith. Could it possibly be a concern that someone is a free thinker and they want to control those thoughts? After all, there is nothing more dangerous to a totalitarian government than a free-thinking people.

 Did you know that Muslims celebrate Rabi'-ul-Awwal (AKA Mawlid al-Nabi), that is, the birth of Muhammad? I did. Guess what? We don't outlaw Mawlid in America because it might damage the faith of Christians! Could you imagine the uproar in the global community if we did?

That my friends is the difference between a free Republic, and an Oligarchy. It is also an example of a society under Sharia Law (Somalia 2009). We would do well to keep that in mind as we as a nation ignorantly try to embrace everything and everyone in an effort to have a happy society based on good feelings instead of history, reality and fact.

On another note, there is something to be said for the Kardashian's under Sharia...I mean, look at the possibilities in the picture below...

The average American likes to think they understand Islam and Sharia Law, but...do they really? I have found that talking to the average person on the street (present reader excluded of COURSE!) about Islam is much like sitting down to a traditional Asian dinner. They think to themselves, "I like Chinese food!" Until they are presented with a nice serving of Balut (second picture); suddenly, what you thought you understood takes on a whole new meaning, and its too late to send it back to where it came from...

PC and hypocracy

Oops, skipped a month; I have tried not to let that happen. Although, I often wonder if I continue to blog once per month for my sporadic readers, or for myself. I know the answer lies somewhere in-between because I can’t help but write, it’s in my blood so to speak and forcing me to write keeps me writing and paying attention.
Remember in English 101 when people say they don’t have anything to write about when in reality there is so much to write about they are overwhelmed trying to narrow it down? That is how I feel today; there is so much to choose from in the news along: Mass shootings in America, Putin and Russia, gun control, Obama, politicians and their web of lies, presidential candidates, Islam and radical ideology, the world my children will grow up in…how about Political Correctness? Yes!
Topic for today: Political Correctness and Chicago-type bullying tactics. Prepare for generalized statements to follow…
What I am seeing are liberal Marxist educators who tell individuals that they are unique, that they are special, and then systematically mold them into “normal” cookie cutter drones. The result is a majority of uneducated college graduates with the inability to think for themselves who strive to show the world how they are un-racist, universally acceptant of everyone and everything and don’t want to offend anyone or hurt their feelings and that everyone’s opinion is important and should be tolerated. Unless of course you are a free-thinker that goes against the status-quo, well then, we can’t have any of those bigoted-racist-intolerant-gun-toting-nut-jobs around…they don’t care about people’s feelings.
This has led to a generation of people that are so fearful about hurting someone’s feelings, angering a group and being seen as intolerant themselves that they will ostracize, oppress and target anyone who does not conform to their “unique” status.
 I also blame mainstream media for fanning the flames of PC into an inferno. Ultimately, this results in people being unwilling or too fearful to express their opinions for very real reasons: IRS audits, attacks on businesses, attacks on persons, law-suites, name-calling and retribution (Joe the Plummer anyone?). Here are some examples mixed with sarcasm.
Example 1: If you express an opinion that you believe based on specific facts and circumstantial evidence that our illustrious commander in chief here in America has Muslim roots…well, try it and see what happens, “You’re just a racist…you’re a right wing nut…anyone who believes that is crazy…” those are the nice things that are said.
 Example 2: Blacks are more likely to commit murder than whites….OH NO YOU DIDN’T!!!! You racist arrogant neo-Nazi bafoon!
Example 3: Whites are more likely to be serial killers than blacks…cricket, cricket…what, no hate and name calling?
Example 4: I think abortion is wrong. “You hate women, you don’t believe in women’s rights, you want them to have abortions in back-alleys…how dare you try to impose your values on others…you need some re-education training.”
Example 5: I am a private small business owner who has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason and do not want to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because it violates my religious freedoms. “You can’t do that, not only will you be sued but the government can order you to do it.” However… if you refuse to make a cake with a swastika on it you are a hero. But inversely we in our Islamic lawyer firm deny the Holocaust happened thus voiding the swastika argument, but we still want to control what you do in your private business place…”
Rabbit trail…why is it that if the lawyer who is trying to sue you for not baking a cake, him/herself refuses to accept a client who wants to sue a gay couple for assaulting him/her…can do so without retribution?
Example 6: I want to get trained and have a permit to carry on college property, “No, someone might get hurt, now go have an abortion.”
I tell you what; political correctness has gotten so bad I even had a moment where I considered not publishing this post on the internet. Then again, I spent so many prime years of my life supporting and defending the constitution so others can express their opinions that I’ll be damned if mine are going to be stifled.
Merry CHRISTMAS!!!

Different Standards

I may border on being accused of being a pessimist or cynical. However, in my own defense, I have 29 awesome and positive days per month, I just choose to expel my negativity here once per month in order to have quality days for the rest of the time. As I've been quoted in the Star Tribune as saying, "I'm bleeding the valve, letting the pressure out." Now, with my disclaimer firmly in place, onward!

Spencer Stone, the hero that prevented the attempted terrorist attack by tackling the would be Muslim terrorist, has been stabbed four times in the chest stateside. Sad.

I wanted to take a moment to point out some different standards. The victim was white. The attackers were Asian. Don't care, doesn't matter. However, why isn't the president preaching about racial motivations in this attack? Also, why isn't Hillary Clinton or the wide variety of others in the cool club calling out for the registration of knives? Why aren't we having involved discussions about "common sense knife ownership? I know I've asked these questions in the past. The answer is simple, because the object is incapable of doing anything. It is people, and people will always find a way to harm others. There is no utopia on this earth that a law on paper will create.

That's it, just wanted to get that off my chest.

Our Very Own Holocaust

Today, a 91 year old German women, a former SS Nazi in the infamous Auschwitz concentration death camp, was charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder by German high courts.

I read that in the news and thought about how that women was acting under the law of the land, it was allowed at the time and deemed "right." In fact, the regime felt that the Jews were "less than human" or "inferior" and could be murdered.

During the Nuremburg trials, when SS Nazi's were facing their death they tried to argue, "It was legal, we were following the law." The response before the rope? "You had an obligation to a higher law..."

SO, I ask you the reader to ponder that statement and the meaning behind it as we see arguments about whether an unborn baby is human or less than human  or inferior or not. When pro-choice advocates tell us how murder is "legal" and they are just following the law...will future courts begin charging doctors and nurses with thousands of counts of murder and accessory to murder? When they are on trial will they try to say that they didn't know what they were doing was wrong? That they were following the law? I don't think that day will come on this earth, though I hope it does...no, I think we are going to relive history for a while with our own Holocaust.

Just because something is legal does not make it right. Slavery was once legal...does that make it right? no, NO, NO NO!!!

As we act like zombies that wander in a daze...as we ask ourselves if black lives matter, if police lives matter, can we just ask ourselves and tell ourselves that ALL lives matter?

I would encourage each of us to, at a minimum, look at some pictures online, look at some videos, and allow ourselves to be horrified for what we are allowing to happen simply because the screams are silent. What our country is doing should give us nightmares for the rest of our lives. Maybe we'll be so disgusted by our inaction that it will motivate us to DO something.

As I look at the pictures below, numbers of bodies aside, do you know what the difference between the pictures are? Not a damn thing.

Fall Approaches


I just finished reading a fiction book called, “The Harbinger.” A harbinger is a warning. The book takes a look at biblical prophecy and makes correlations to modern day America. Biblical or not, this book is a mind freak of a read. In a nutshell, disaster is predicted for America, and one of the last warnings to turn from our moral decline will come September of 2015. There is simply no way to summarize it in a web-post, so I won’t bother to try. I also skimmed through a book called, “Four Blood Moons,” which goes back through history to catalog major world events that transpire every time there is a series of four blood moons in a row. If memory serves, the last set of blood moons marked the times of the holocaust, Israel being established, the 6 days war…and I forget the other. In any case, this book also says something is supposed to happen. The final blood moon will be September 28th. There is simply too much information on the World Wide Web to make a cohesive summary. Suffice to day, a lot of the coincidences are interesting, and I’ll be watching world events next month to see what happens.

I didn’t really have much interesting to post this month, but I wanted something up on the last day of August. Back to school full time while still in my career job. No plans of job changing at this point just thought the time was right. My summer was WAY busier than I wanted it to be, I only got out fishing twice. Oh well, grouse hunting is almost here. Fall approaches.

Focus

I have done a good job cutting myself off from mainstream media. I found I was anxious, angry and stressed when I spent too much time in the news. So it was with great sadness and deep mourning that I heard of the four Marines murdered by Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez in Tennessee.

I was further grieved that CNN's opening and ending paragraph were about the type and detail of the firearm used. In an essay, this is how you drive your main point home; opening and concluding point.

The 'innocent' and loaded question of '"Who was the gunman and why did he open fire?"' is just another example of liberal media pandering to the PC gods.

Why are we so afraid to conclude that a Muslim Terrorist is exactly and simply that...a Muslim Terrorist? We certainly have no problem throwing around "Christian hate mongering" or "White conservative" as soon as the label seems to fit, but they can't seem to bring themselves to ask the question, "Why do Muslim Terrorists hate the west so much that they will murder, torture and destroy with impunity?" That is the issue that needs to be addressed, not the side-stepping "Islam is a religion of peace" pandering nonsense that is so popular right now.

Obama did a decent job of a press release, but he used words like "killed" instead of "murdered" and "attacked" instead of hate-crime. The transposition of which was used when describing recent race-filled incidents in our country.

Why do our leaders and policies reflect an apologetic attitude to the rest of the world and a PC campaign of 'just trying to be nice' in hopes that nations will like us, when we should be taking an iron stance on those that attack, use, rape and assault our country?

Some bullies don't want to be paid off, they don't want to play nice, and they don't want to be friends. They just want to take something nice and destroy it.

We as a country and we as individuals need to be far less concerned with what others think, and far less concerned with being well-liked and start practical application for defending our citizens. I realize that no matter what we do good people will die, but we can at least try to stem the tide.
No matter how much PC guru's would preach that Islam is a religion of peace, I can testify that statement is a lie. I know there are millions of peaceful Muslims, but the large strain of violence that permeates every Islamic country was seen when Muslims around the world abruptly cheered when the Twin Towers were attacked.

I found this quote from a website that is pretty spot-on for my worldview:
"We have seen the roots of Islamic violence in the life and teachings of Mohammed. We have seen that world events have conspired to place Islam and Christianity in a conflict of civilizations that has stretched from the sixth to the twenty-first century.
What the future holds is unknown. What is known is that Islamic civilization has a strong tendency to violence that stretches back to the days of Mohammed and that has begun to flare up in resurgent terrorist and revolutionary movements." http://www.catholic.com/documents/endless-jihad-the-truth-about-islam-and-violence

 One of my old sergeants used to say you never present a problem without also presenting a possible solution. I still agree with that.

So I tried to actually come up with a partial solution that is viable for my readers. Something that my readers have within their ability to do. I tell you what, it was not easy! But I did come up with a two-part strategy I believe everyone can participate in. #1 Pray for our country, since I do believe there is hope. #2. Stop watching and reading CNN, since they insist on reporting opinion instead of facts. NBC goes so far as to edit and produce outright lies. I personally do not watch either anymore.

There, I am empty on higher thinking for today. Sad, because this didn't feel very high ;)

After all of that, my opening and ending are the same. It is with deep sadness that I salute the servicemen that were murdered by a Muslim Terrorist.

We're from the government and we're here to help...


It's perfectly fine, this is a medical procedure, it's for your own good. Now sit still Jonny and let it happen or we'll fine your parents, maybe charge THEM with a crime. Now, take your lobotomy.



Now, on to the topic: Mandated vaccines

More and more of our freedoms begin to erode, soon they will be all gone, because big brother knows what’s best for you, whether you like it or not.

Recently in the news, California is on the cusp of passing a vaccination mandate for children, not giving parents the right to opt out of vaccines. If you have read my previous post on vaccines, then you know how I feel about them, and how there are neurotoxins in them; Formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury to name a couple.

Big brother does NOT know best. For YEARS big brother (FDA) has told us that an aspirin a day is good for you, and encouraged you to take one every day regardless if you need it or not. This has been common thought and practice for years. Now it appears that aspirin is bad for you, and can cause bleeding to the brain and stomach. But if you had challenged the status quo prior to this, you would have been labeled as a nut, a fringe-thinker, even a conspiracy theorist.

As I discussed in my last post…do we really have freedom… if it begins to be more and more regulated? How long before we are told what opinions we are allowed to have? Will we be “allowed” to grow our own food? How about having a say in how we raise our children? Where does the madness end?

It ends when the average citizen gets pissed off enough to stand up, draw a line in the sand and say, “That’s enough.”

I have already drawn my line.  I’ve seen what happens in other countries when the elected people that are supposed to represent, get too big for their britches, and it isn’t pretty. You can murder an unborn child, but heaven forbid you have a say in what is injected into the one you chose to keep alive. Little by little, we are losing before the fight has even begun.  Pray, think, act.
