"There is no greatness in murder!"

I saw this before Christmas, and I loved it. It is full of great quotes like "President Obama... play your position," and "Stop attaching your emotions to your job," and "Al Sharpton... stands for nothing at all." It is not safe for work. Lots of bad language. Lots. But also a lot of truth and wisdom.

This Honestly Speaking lady sounds more like MLK here than Sharpton, Jackson and all their ilk.

Just your foolish pride

Like this song a lot, as many of you know. Linked to an updated live version in the past.

Fooled again

Meet the new boss . . . .

. . . . same as the old boss.

We silly voters.  We think the election is about us, and what we want.  And then those we elect remind us that it's all about them.

Move over Janis and Big Brother

...let Lydia take over!

By request from a reader. This band kicks, and they are still playing!

Self-debunking Style

A conspiracy theory fanatic about whom I've blogged in the past just sent me this in an email. I've reduced the font size for the benefit of readers.

What does the sinking of the "Titanic" (i.e.the Olympic) have to do with the Federal Reserve and financing World War I ?? (As well as WW II and the coming WW III)

A compelling presentation by researcher John Hamer, and author of the recently published book 'The Falsification of History', to New Horizons in St. Annes, Lancashire, England.

And how could ice punch a 5" round hole through solid steel? A total debunking from one end to the other of the official story of the sinking of the "Titanic!"

[Youtube link to wacky Titanic conspiracy video removed.]

Albert pike laid out the Masonic / Illuminati plan for three world wars in 1871 :

[Link removed from Seventh Day Adventist nutcase.]

The plan is for WW III to set the stage for the one World religion and government under AntiChrist and the False Prophet (who now occupies the Vatican) . The present BEAST system will be collapsed (the seventh head of the BEAST will receive "a deadly wound") and then "go into perdition" (Rev.17:8) and come back to life under Anti-Christ (Rev.13:3) who will occupy St Peters at the Vatican (2 Thess. 2:3-4; Matt. 24:15). The True Church will finally separate from this apostasy just as the early Jewish Christians finally separated from the apostate Jewish religious system.

The Jewish people will be betrayed by their vile masonic illuminatist Zionist masters and they will then finally turn to their true Messiah and finally take their rightful place as prominent in the True Church.

It's sad to read the rantings of people who believe whatever reinforces their prejudices. It's sad to me that the emailer, who claims to be a Catholic, would link to an anti-Catholic 7DA nutcase and claim the Pope is the anti-Christ even as the 7DA adherents routinely do.

But it is reassuring to note that for any thinking person, the content in an email like this more or less refutes itself. This man obviously has issues with obsession, grandiosity, anti-Jewish bigotry and gullibility, among other things. His endless spew of insane emails (I get one or two emails from him PER DAY) are sure to contain some things with which his readers will take issue. While it has been demonstrated that conspiracy theorists are inclined to believe any conspiracy theory even when it contradicts other conspiracy theories they hold, my hope is that the constant barrage of immoderate rhetoric and fanaticism from this man will call into question his credibility among readers.

Will they even make it to step one?

I might be pleasantly surprised and the Democrats might take the 12-step plan to recovery as advised by Emil Henry. But I very much doubt it. Maybe a few will. Excerpt:

4: This step requires brutal self-reflection, taking fearless inventory of all the actions that led to the Democrats’ electoral humiliation. Examples might include: an examination of why the lawmakers ignored abuses of power such as the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservatives; illegitimate executive orders; and bogus accounts of the Benghazi murders. Above all, Democrats must reflect on their role in the enactment of ObamaCare, with all the Congressional Budget Office gimmickry, legislative shenanigans and crony giveaways that got it passed.

5: Democrats should openly admit the exact nature of their wrongs. Begin with the spending binge that left the country $18 trillion in debt; finish up with how the Harry Reid -led Senate ran interference for the president, and for Democrats in tough re-election fights, by burying hundreds of bills passed in the House.

6: To shed their main defect—the tendency to perceive America as the problem—Democrats should spend some time on the road examining what alternatives to free-market capitalism and the rule of law look like. Mandatory stops include the Middle East, where real wars on women are waged, and the eurozone, where economic stagnation from years of tax-and-spend liberalism is on ample display. Also on the itinerary: Cuba, Venezuela and, sadly, too many other places to mention, where central control or its first cousin, socialism, produces a certain kind of income equality—across-the-board misery.

Step 11 is also worth emphasizing:

This step calls on Democrats to meditate and pray for the wisdom to internalize these steps and the strength to remain on a path of recovery. The lawmakers should look for inspiration in the example of others who found the strength to shed their former liberal compulsions: Ronald Reagan, Condoleezza Rice , Rudy Giuliani and Phil Gramm.

Come on, come on, come on...

Live version was out of sync. Anyway, it looks like I'm doing the alphabet in seventies rock here. I have no idea why, other than it's fun.

Run down and lied to

This is just kicking right now, man.
