Video #4: The Butchers of Planned Parenthood: "It's another boy!"...

no, it's another dead baby boy having his brain, heart, and eyeballs picked over by people who have sold their souls to the devil.

Cecil the Lion more important than dead human babies?...

which is number one on my list of what's wrong with society.

It's not necessarily the most important thing on my list, but it happens to be the first one I'm addressing.

Supposedly, trophy hunting helps support conservation efforts in Africa and improves the local economy.

And how is that any different from saying selling human baby parts for research makes the killing of a baby A-okay?

Allow me to make my position very clear. 

I think trophy hunting is stupid.  And, this will probably tick off anyone that has a deer head hanging on their wall, I think that's really weird, too. 

The entire world is in an uproar over Cecil the Lion being killed in Africa by a dentist from Minnesota, while almost nothing is said about Planned Parenthood culling little parts from murdered human babies.

William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection had this to say:
What is not good, in my mind, is trying to score points by noting how the mainstream media has paid more attention to Cecil than to the aborted babies in the Planned Parenthood scandal. One has nothing to do with the other, and in a perverse way, it almost draws a moral equivalency to argue that the abortion scandal should have received more coverage because of coverage of Cecil. source
I don't agree, Mr Jacobson, but I support your right to say whatever you wish.

We're not trying to "score points", and I'm not quite sure where, and with whom, we would be scoring all those points, or for what purpose.  I do understand what you're trying to express, and that your final conclusion about moral equivalency is correct.

However, we are simply making an observation; an observation that does not reflect well on any pro-abortion believer's outrage over a lion being killed.  To suggest that we are trying "to score points" could have been left out of your otherwise fine article.

These events do not constitute an either/or scenario.  Neither event should be taking place.

Planned Parenthood Exposé Continues with Video Number Three...

and it's ugly.

The following video is very graphic.




For contrast, listen to Republican Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina as she schools Jess McIntosh, a top official with Emily’s List, about abortion.  The abortion part of the interview starts at 3:20.

Obama calls Tea Party members stupid...

again.

Because there's no other way to interpret this statement made by him on the Jon Stewart show, which aired last night.
"By the time I leave here, I think we're going to be able to say that government is working much better, much more efficiently, much more customer-friendly than when I came into office," Obama added later. When people throw up their hands and say "there's nothing that can be done," he added "then what you get are protest movements on the left, or the right — I mean, to some degree the Tea Party is an expression of frustration; they see a bunch of stuff going on that they don't understand and they feel threatened by, and then they react." Stewart: "You make them sound like bunnies." source
I understand perfectly, you arrogant, narcissistic, useless piece of protoplasm.  What the hell is wrong with a man who consistently insults the intelligence of the majority of the people in this country?  Yes - majority.  Do not believe for one single solitary minute that we're in the minority.

You want to see stupid?  Just go to any libtard site or Facebook page and witness them touting the party line:  unemployment down, no inflation, Iran deal is just super-duper great (make love not war), health care costs are down,  Israel is bad, and Planned Parenthood is good.

More Ghoulish Planned Parenthood Video Released...

how can anyone defend this?

When I was asked why The Center for Medical Progress waited a year before releasing the video of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how America’s largest abortion business allegedly uses the banned partial birth abortion procedure to harvest and sell the body parts of aborted children, including hearts, lungs, liver, and heads, the answer was simple. If they made one video and released it, they wouldn't be able to do more undercover work.  How many more videos will be released?  We'll all have to wait and see.  

In this just released video, Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council, negotiates the price for pieces of babies ripped from the womb.

A question:  If the cost of buying dead baby parts is to only cover expenses, then what is there to negotiate? 

Intact specimens?  I guess for these progressives, calling a baby an intact specimen may soothe their poorly formed conscience.

It was bad enough having to watch Nucatola shoveling salad and slurping wine while discussing harvesting whole baby heads, but this woman obviously thinks she's a great negotiator and a very important person.  Imagine sitting across from her at the dinner table.

From Breitbart: (emphasis mine)
At the end of the video, like Nucatola, Gatter talks about changing the abortion technique to get intact specimens, changing from a rather violent suction method that would destroy tissue to what she calls an IPAS, which is a reference to a nonprofit company that makes and distributes “manual vacuum aspirators” which would be a less harmful way to get at the internal organs. She said there would be protocol issues with the patient but that she saw no problem with it. She calls it a “less crunchy” way to get intact organs.

The Camp of the Saints...

no - not the wonderful blog by the same name, but the book by Jean Raspail.

Politically incorrect or prophetic?

Just started reading this yesterday.

In view of what's going on with illegal immigration, I'm voting prophetic.

From Wiki, because that's all I can handle this Monday morning:

The Camp of the Saints (Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French apocalyptic novel by Jean Raspail. The novel depicts a hypothetical setting whereby Third World mass immigration to France and the West leads to the destruction of Western civilization. Almost forty years after publication the book returned to the bestseller list in 2011.

Available at Amazon:

Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database...

 while his daughters have only black friends.
A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”
Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.
 This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds. read the rest
Obama and his daughters, accompanied by their black friends, wander through Central Park.

Looks mighty segregated to me.

And couldn't you have found a tighter and shorter dress for your 14 year old? 











Decorated Marines Gunned Down Like Rabbits in a County Fair Shooting Booth and Suddenly We Need to De-fund Planned Parenthood....

two things:

Why are decorated soldiers  Marines not armed?

And why are we giving tax-payer money to an organization that makes tens of millions killing babies?  Think about this: It was okay to fund them when all they did was mass murder, but selling baby parts is beyond the pale. There's no logic in that. None.

That is all.

Are You Really in Control of Your Life?...


or are you being controlled by outside forces?

There is no doubt that we are more "connected" than ever before.  Between our lap tops, iPads, and smart phones, there is hardly a time when we are not being bombarded with information, not to mention kitteh videos, and other esoteric non-essentials.

Most of us have witnessed the hapless person strolling down the street, grocery store aisle, or sitting with friends in a restaurant with their heads bowed over their phones.  Not only is it doing terrible things to their posture, it's also scrambling their brains.

If you think you're immune to the constant flow of information, much of it misinformation, you're the main target and probably the most easily controlled.

We crow about mainstream news sources as being biased, outright lying, or otherwise manipulating the news, and pat ourselves on the back because we have better sources.  More truthful sources. Trusted sources.

But, do you really?

Facebook has something like a billion people using it's platform.  I have a bit of a problem with that figure because it includes people who sign up and don't post anything, not to mention the number of fake accounts.  I will concede that a whole load of people are wandering around Facebook.

Facebook has a news feed.  For many people, this is their only news source.  I know that seems hard to believe. I barely even noticed it until it was pointed out to me. 

You realize, of course, that when you are staring at a little screen looking at the latest selfie your BFF posted, just as when you are watching TV, you are essentially in a hypnotic state open to whatever propagandists wish to pour into your willing and waiting brain?

You may think you're "in-touch", but, in fact, your reality is being reshaped for you.  You've handed over your power as an individual, and become part of the collective.

How many of you believe that there are not paid government trolls re-shaping the conversations on chat forums, or interjecting conflicting information and outright propaganda in comment sections of the larger news blogs?   Or that the Facebook news feed is "all the news that's fit to print", the famous tagline of the New York Times?

Our brains, contrary to what many people believe, are not wired to multi-task.  Yet texting which, in my opinion, is an abhorrent way to communicate, and in some sense emails, forces us to respond, immediately dragging us away from whatever we were trying to do.  That is why you have people sitting around a table in a restaurant all staring at their phones.

These devices are shaping a new reality for people.  Logic, and an individual's ability to think things through is kicked to the curb while they are spoon fed garbage and call it dinner.

I'm not anti-technology.  Great strides have been made in medicine and other fields through technology.  It's about setting limits.  It's the difference between someone putting a tiny tattoo on their ankle versus inking their entire bodies.

It's about living in the real world, rather than in a reality shaped by someone else. It's about being an individual and not a tiny speck in the collective.

6 Things to know about Planned Parenthood...

and some questions.
 1. Planned Parenthood clinics did 327,653 abortions in its fiscal year 2014 (which ran    from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014).
 2. Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements, which equaled 41 percent of its revenue. That's an average of $1.4 million per day.

3. Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood earned $590,928.00.

4. The combined salaries of Planned Parenthood's CEO's was $11,536,408.00 in 2013.

5. Planned Parenthood has over 1.4 billion in assets.

6. Planned Parenthood's 62 affiliates brought in $1,066,438,338 in 2013.

All figures are from Planned Parenthood annual report

Questions:

Why, when all women have easy access to birth control,  have over 300K women been "surprised" by an inconvenient pregnancy?

How did we, in just 50 years, get from "abortion is a terrible thing" to at least 50% of the citizens of this country thinking is was A-okay?

God is not pleased.

Planned Parenthood: Selling Baby Parts...

against the law.
 
I can't remember the last time I saw something as evil as this Planned Parenthood doctor shoveling food into her gaping maw while casually discussing selling livers, lungs, and lower extremities of aborted babies.

What have we become as a country? 

May I remind you all that our government hands over your tax dollars to this evil corporation every single solitary year. 

This is a must watch video.

The video, made by the Center for Medical Progress, catches Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how America’s largest abortion business allegedly uses the banned partial birth abortion procedure to harvest and sell the body parts of aborted children, including hearts, lungs, liver, and heads.

Obama's Schedule for Monday...

what does your schedule look like?

I only have one comment:

What in hell are we paying you $400K a year to do?  That doesn't include all the perks, insider trading, and other sources of income.  You've become a multi-millionaire since becoming president.

This past weekend, your wife took your daughters to a Broadway play - one I would never let my young daughters attend.  You played golf at a course that was some distance from the White House 
spewing untold amount of CO2 into the air.   And today, all you can manage is lunch with that senile dope who is our vice-president?

Last Thursday, the beautiful Kale Steinle was laid to rest in Pleasanton, CA, killed by an illegal immigrant who was here because of your policies.

Where was your statement?  Where was your sympathy?  Nothing for Kate, but plenty for every black felon who was killed for good reason.  

And you wonder why Trump is so popular???  No, actually you don't wonder at all.

The beautiful Kate may be your downfall.  We can surely hope so.  Lord knows, you need one.

If there was one person in DC that had any balls, you would have been impeached 5 years ago.

It's Sunday: Let's talk about Donald Trump, Click Bait, and some nifty products...

because no one else is - particularly when it comes to The Donald.

After hitting the major news sites like Drudge, Townhall, Bad Blue, et al, as I do most mornings,  I headed off to Feedly.  My feed is in "title only" mode so I can scroll through hundreds of article titles quickly.  I've winnowed my feed down to 251, which is still a substantial amount.

I was curious about how many people would remark about the speech on illegal immigration Trump gave in Phoenix yesterday.  It was pretty much crickets.

Yesterday, I saw someone say, "Let's face it, Trump is a buffoon."

Ah, no, I wouldn't call someone who has made billions of dollars a "buffoon", unless, of course, he did it by engaging in the career of buffoonery - sort of like the average reality star or Hollywood actor.  Nope.  He did it by being smarter than the person sitting in his mother's basement banging out a blog. 

I watched his speech live.  Now, like him or hate him, he makes sense, and he says the things the other candidates will not say.  He spoke, wait for it; the truth, something in very short supply in this world.

Mark Steyn  gets it:
[...]But here's the funny and consequential thing. Trump is supposed to be the narcissist blowhard celebrity candidate: He's a guy famous for erecting aesthetically revolting buildings with his "brand" plastered all over them, for arm-candy brides, for beauty contests and reality shows. The other fellows are sober, serious senators and governors.

And yet Trump is the only one who's introduced an issue into this otherwise torpid campaign - and the most important issue of all, I would argue, in that ultimately it's one of national survival. And so the same media that dismisses Trump as an empty reality-show vanity candidate are now denouncing him for bringing up the only real policy question in the race so far.

What he said may or may not be offensive, but it happens to be true: America has more Mexicans than anybody needs, and then some. It certainly has more unskilled Mexicans than any country needs, including countries whose names begin with "Mex-" and end in "-ico". And it has far more criminal Mexicans than anybody needs, which is why they make up 71 per cent of the foreign inmates in federal jails. Just to underline that last point, a young American woman was murdered for kicks in a supposed "sanctuary city" on the eve of the holiday weekend by an illegal immigrant from Mexico. He had flouted US immigration law for years - or, to be more precise about it, local, state and federal officials had colluded with him in the flouting of US immigration law, to the point where San Francisco's sheriff actively demanded the return of this criminal to his "sanctuary city", thereby facilitating the homicide of an actual citizen, taxpayer and net contributor to American society. read the rest

And Amy Miller, over at Legal Insurrection gets it:
When Trump announced his candidacy last month, I said that I was interested to see how the campaign would introduce Trump the Man (as opposed to Trump the Mogul or Trump the Reality Star) to the American people. If this is their play, it might just be working. Conservative primary voters are currently at each other’s throats over whether or not Trump is worth their attention, worth their vote, or worth nothing more than a passing glance on the way to a Cruz or Rubio rally.

These types of stories are media bait, and Trump is taking full advantage of the opportunity; but he’s also exposing some nasty realities about the effects of illegal immigration.

Perhaps if other Republicans took illegal immigration more seriously, Trump’s numbers would not be rising as they are. read the rest
Click Bait

A very good article on click bait, over at Sleuth Journal, caught my eye this morning.  I have been disturbed to see so many conservative sites starting to use this gambit to increase their hits.  It wastes my time, and hurts their credibility.  I avoid clicking through from Feedly and tend to avoid those sites.

 How To Seek The Truth And Avoid Clickbait
More than once I have shared my angst about the sensationalist format of many websites.  These sites use catchy photos that have nothing to do with the article, pop-up reminders that come right back after clicking them closed, and/or fear-mongering headlines that use scare tactics to persuade you to purchase an overpriced, marginally useful video course or 30-page eBook.

Why do they do this?  The more traffic they generate, the more likely that unsuspecting readers will click on a network ad and generate income for the website owner.

Many of these sites steal content from legitimate, hardworking authors and, when challenged, set up hate mail campaigns to spam comments and Facebook feeds.  It is a real problem for many of us and something bloggers have to deal with day in and day out. read the rest

Nifty Products:

Last week over dinner, hubby said, "I've been smelling Spike in my mind.  We should see if you can still get it."

Spike was a seasoning product introduced by Gaylord Hauser over 60 years ago. I was unable to track down an exact date, so 60 years is an approximation.

From Wiki:
Dr. Benjamin Gayelord Hauser (1895–1984), popularly known as Gayelord Hauser, was an American nutritionist and self-help author, who promoted the 'natural way of eating' during the mid-20th century. He promoted foods rich in vitamin B and discouraged consumption of sugar and white flour. Hauser was a best-selling author, popular on the lecture and social circuits, and was nutritional advisor to many celebrities.
We were big fans of Gayelord Hauser when I was a kid, and I consider him to have been way ahead of his time with his nutritional advice.

It didn't take long for me to ascertain that, yes, Spike was still available.  While hubby was at one of our local grocery stores, he snagged a bottle of Vegit, another great Hauser product, but we really wanted Spike.

At our other local grocery store (yes, we only have two grocery stores in Post Falls - nearby Coeur d' Alene has a gazillion), we not only found Spike, it was on sale - words that make my frugal little heart twang with happiness, and made me break out in a happy dance in the spice aisle.

There's been a years long debate about Spike claiming to not have added MSG.  People say it does have yeast extract and hydrolyzed yeast extract which is just a code name for glutamate. 

I don't get into all these MSG arguments - for or against.  MSG is a naturally occurring amino acid found in many foods.  Controlled studies have been unable to ascertain whether it causes headaches or other maladies. 

We love Spike and will continue to use it.

Ask your local grocery store to stock it or you can buy it at Amazon.

You can view other Hauser products at:  Modern Products

Let's rewrite history...

1984 has finally arrived and the people are so dumbed down they not only don't understand what is going on, they don't care.

We have elected pukes making a big deal out of retiring the Confederate flag in SC, and they're planning on digging up dead people and moving them. 
MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com)--The Memphis City Council unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday to move the remains of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife from Health Sciences Park.

They have been buried in a park on Union Avenue for 110 years.

Council members are also moving ahead with plans to remove the statue of Forrest, and even looking at selling the statue to anyone who wants it. source
 Crime rates are soaring in most major cities, one third of the people in this country are out of work, illegal immigrants are killing our citizens, and all these over-paid politicians are harping about flags and football logos.  Do you see a serious problem?

A Personal Note on Prepping:

Yesterday and the day before, we experienced power outages lasting about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.  It didn't take long to realize, once again, how dependent we are on our power.  Last week I had read an article, How to Prep for a Summer Power Outage, by Daisy Luther, over at The Organic Prepper, which was excellent (as all of Daisy's articles are.)

A power outage of a few hours in 98° weather is not too serious.  But after about 24 hours, you can kiss your frozen and refrigerated food buh bye.  A winter power outage in North Idaho is no big deal.  Toss the food in a box and stick it on the deck or in a snow bank.  But summer is a problem.   It's one of the reasons I started canning again last year, and concentrated on meat and veggies.  Man does not live on pickles and jelly. 

Daisy also has a fine article on How to Prepare for a Cyber Attack.  I highly recommend both.

On the up-side, our heat wave has broken, it actually rained today, and we're having bacon for breakfast.  Life is good.

Glitches abound in the ethernet...

and the stock market shuts down,  planes don't fly, and the Wall Street Journal vanishes.

Sounds mighty fishy to me.

It also points to how dependent we are on the internet.  What would happen if there was a real cyber attack?

For one thing, I wouldn't be doing any shopping as I rely almost exclusively on the internet for most purchases.  On the other hand, I wouldn't be wasting time reading news sites and blogs every day.  Seems like a fair trade, and since I just bought my favorite lipstick online, saving me from a trip to Macy's, I'm set for awhile.

Which brings me to preparedness.  How prepared are you for such a scenario?  No doubt chaos would reign for awhile until people figured out how to run their businesses and daily life without the use of a computer - like in the old days.  Imagine a large company tasked with delivering goods to a grocery store, or UPS trying to deliver packages and having to do actual paperwork - by hand - on paper.  Ouch.  Good grief.  Do they even have paper?

Or how about a power outage?  Electric companies rely on computer-driven info.  How are they going to determine where a problem in the grid is without that info?

Some people are resilient and will figure it all out in time.  But while it's being figured out, will you be able to survive?

Which brings me to some articles that caught my eye this morning about prepping, starting with Preparedness Critics Are History’s Cannon Fodder, by Brandon Smith, over at Alt-Market.

In part of the article he said:
I recently read an article by Joshua Krause over at The Daily Sheeple in which he countered a mainstream hit piece article against preppers titled “Be prepared for Preppers.” The article is itself an immensely disturbed display, first using typical and unimaginative ad hominem arguments to marginalize preppers, then mutating into a treatise on why preppers should all be exterminated.
So, off I went to The Daily Sheeple, where Joshua Krause eviscerates someone named Leslie Anthony for his hit piece on preppers at some site called Pique.  

At that point I had to read Anthony's piece.

O.M.Gosh! 

It's been a long time since I read anything so arrogant and ignorant.  I immediately had the vision of this Anthony creature as a limp-wristed metro-sexual weenie, sitting in a corner coffee house drinking a soy latte, banging away on his lap top, and feeling all smug and superior.  I'll bet he even wears loafers without socks, a deplorable and filthy fashion that should be abolished.

Here's his description of preppers:
Other than religious fundamentalists, tea-partiers and chem-trails believers, one might rightfully ask: Just who are these people? Actually, that's pretty much it. Think uninformed pseudoscience-nerd meets survivalist meets anarchist militia with a touch of DIY and homemaker thrown in (picture Bill Ny, Les Stroud, Red Green and Martha Stewart with swastika tattoos and a schwack of guns — e.g., Idaho Hillbilly)
 Proud to be an Idaho Hillbilly, you jerk.

He goes on to say:
Ah, poor misunderstood dorks. But what else can they expect? Read any of this stuff and you know: few preppers are smarter than a 5th grader, and, at least in the Washington and Oregon Cascades, most often meth-fueled, neo-Christian, anarchist bow-hunters who think they'll outlast the rest of us because they own weapons, wear camo tank tops, and used their welfare cheques to clean Costco out of Kraft Dinner and jerky. They're not only prepared, but actively seeking out disaster, "Bring it on Bitches" being the community's not-so-subtle rallying cry.
Welfare cheques

That says it all.  Who the hell spells checks "cheques."

I hope Mr. Anthony is enjoying his 15 minutes in the spotlight.  To catch the eye of hotshots like Alt-Market and The Daily Sheeple is no mean feat.  Me?  I'm just a little guy who thinks people who prep are smarter than 5th graders.

I have a question for you, Mr Anthony.  Who's going to make your soy latte if the grid goes down or even tie your shoelaces?  Oh, wait - not to worry.  You wear loafers without socks.








Let me start by saying that I almost never do this. I hate giving people a hard time for their opinions, even if they’re wildly divergent from my own. But sometimes, people say things that are so baseless and ignorant, they demand a response.
Such is the case with a piece published yesterday at piquenewsmagazine.com, by Leslie Anthony. His article “Be prepared for Preppers” may be one of the most outrageous attempts to smear the prepper community, that I’ve ever seen.

Michelle Obama spends 600k to re-do White House state dining room...

that didn't need re-doing.

It looked just fine before the re-do.  In fact, in my opinion, it looked way better.

Now this is all coming from Daily Mail, so we'll have to hope they got it right.  Always suspect.

My burning question is:  WHAT THE HELL COST 600K??  Sorry for shouting, but really guys, some paint,  new rug, and some new chairs and the cost is 600K???

We have 1/3 of the people in this country with no jobs, or living paycheck to paycheck, and this ghetto-trash first "lady" spends 600K on a dining room re-do?

How about donating that money to the family of Kathryn Steinle, who was murdered "by accident" by an illegal immigrant in San Fransisco, a "sanctuary" city.  Why is it that the libtards can decide which laws they uphold and which they just ignore?

Trans Pacific Partnership...

why the secrecy?

I think we all know the answer to that question.  Obviously, this "treaty" is not a good thing.

Here are two articles which do a great job of bringing this into focus. 

In the meantime, our heat wave has fried my brain as well as my property.  I have plants keeling over because I can't get water around to them fast enough.  Even the damn weeds are dying. Well, some of them. Others seem to be thriving.

Today is haircut day which also means Costco day. Hopefully, it will restore my good humor.

How The TPP Is Going To Affect You

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) has moved one stepcloser to becoming law in the US after the Senate voted to give Fast Track authority to the President. The TPP however must really be considered as 1 of 3 mega treaties designed to give unprecedented control of the world’s trade to giant multinationals including Big Pharma and Big Biotech companies. The other 2 parts are the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and the TISA (Trade in Services Agreement); together the TPP, TTIP and TISA form the 3 T-Treaties to cement the corporatocracy as our global ruler. The TPP is focused on 12 countries in the Pacific which contribute 40% of the world’s GDP (US, Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei) while the TTIP harmonizes trade between the US and the EU. The TISA included the US, EU, Australia and other nations (totaling 24) and aims to privatize the worldwide trade of services such as banking, healthcare and transport. read the rest

Vile and Vicious Lesbians are Still Vile and Vicious, and you are losing your freedoms sooner rather than later...

and according to the original complaint, one of them is now fat as a result of not having a cake baked for their lesbian "nuptials."  How weird is that?

Juxtaposed with the war on history and the Confederate flag, it becomes obvious we are in deep doo.

In my original post of April 27th I said:
If you think this has nothing to do with you, you may want to think it through a bit more thoroughly.  There is a war being waged on Christians and if you consider yourself a Christian, you are in the cross hairs.  Next up will be an attack on the churches.  Notice these vile creeps never go after a Muslim bakery or florist?  
It couldn't happen here?  Oh, yes it can, and it is happening.

This case is so horrendously awful, I never thought it could get worse.  But it can, and it did.

Don't you dare say anything against our newest protected class or you will not only be made to care, you will be made to pay, and you will be made to shut up about your beliefs. This is how libtards show their tolerance, openness, and caring. 

They are driven to this behavior because deep down they know the truth.  Like my troll, they know they are losers and the only way they have to fight back is through slander, hate, and declaring to the world how special they are, and how evil Christians and conservatives are.

These are the ones who cheer the slaughter of infants in the womb, if it causes an inconvenience, but rail against the death penalty.  They're the ones who want to tax the job creators and suppliers out of business, and the ones who demand we drive electric cars and turn off our air conditioners.

Is this recent declaration by the Supreme Court on homosexual "marriage" going to be the beginning of the biggest push-back since April 19th, 1775?

Oregon imposes gag order on Christian bakers in gay wedding case:
I don’t know if you’ve followed the case of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. This is the now-closed bakery in Oregon that has become a target of state officials because its Christian owners declined to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding.

Not only has the business been forced to close, the state has fined the Kleins $135,000. But it gets worse. Much worse. Now the state has responded to a radio interview the Kleins gave by ordering them to no longer talk publicly about why their faith compels them to decline such business.
We’ve been telling you for some time now that this gay wedding business is little more than a cover for Fascism. Some of you thought that was way overblown. Can you still doubt it after this?

In the ruling, Avakian placed an effective gag order on the Kleins, ordering them to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs.

  “This effectively strips us of all our First Amendment rights,” said the Kleins, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, which has since closed, on their Facebook page. “According to the state of Oregon, we neither have freedom of religion nor freedom of speech.”

  The cease and desist order came about after Aaron and Melissa Klein participated in an interview with Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins. During the interview, Aaron said among other things, “This fight is not over. We will continue to stand strong.”

  Lawyers for plaintiffs, Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, argued that in making this statement, the Kleins violated an Oregon law banning people from acting on behalf of a place of public accommodation (in this case, the place would be the Kleins’ former bakery) to communicate anything to the effect that the place of public accommodation would discriminate.

The specific order reads: “The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders [Aaron and Melissa Klein] to cease and desist from publishing, circulating, issuing or displaying, or causing to be published … any communication to the effect that any of the accommodations … will be refused, withheld from or denied to, or that any discrimination be made against, any person on account of their sexual orientation.” read the rest
And what of the response of Aaron Klein via TheBlaze:
“He wants to silence anyone who opposes his point of view,” Klein told TheBlaze, speaking specifically about Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, who has spearheaded the case against the couple. “Unfortunately, he’s doing this with the wrong Christian, because I fight back.”
Klein also delivered a message to Americans and business leaders about why he believes that his case is monumentally important.
“For years, we’ve heard same-sex marriage will not affect anybody,” he said. “I’m here firsthand to tell everyone in America that it has already impacted people. Christians, get ready to take a stand. Get ready for civil disobedience.”
Klein said he and his wife will request a stay in an effort to delay the order, which he said requires them to immediately cut a $135,000 check to Rachel Cryer-Bowman and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, the couple who were refused a cake by the bakery. He also said that the appeals process will likely be undertaken.
“It has the potential to financially ruin our family … [Avakian] knew that full well going into this,” Klein said of the massive sum they have been mandated to pay after citing their Christian views in declining the cake. “He did not seek business assets, he sought personal property.”
Klein, who is a Christian and a father of five, said that he doesn’t think the timing of the case is a surprise either — the official ruling came just days after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide. read the rest
On this, the eve of Independence Day, it is time for you to declare your independence.  It is time to stand up and say, "I've had enough, and I'm not going to take it anymore."  Are you going to stand by and allow the fascist left to destroy your history, your monuments, and your free speech?  Are you going to be a free man or a slave?

Allow me to reprint a comment I read earlier today at SBPDL:

I have broken it into paragraphs for ease of reading.

We are witnessing destruction.

 Destruction of history--the memory hole now exists along with the "party" that controls it. 

Destruction of wealth as private property becomes the property of the "king" once more.

 Destruction of knowledge as the most ignorant, reactionary and non-productive become little tyrants, crying in their cradles with a nanny state that says slavery to the state is legal, and you will feed them under threat of death.

Destruction of agency, as dependency and fear have replaced self-reliance and responsibility.

Destruction of truth, as the truth is inconvenient and must be replaced by the self-created reality of the controllers.

 Destruction of health, as an populace more constrained and poisoned by the mass-controlled food and drink they consume get ever less nutrition, rest, or sleep than any generation before it.

 Destruction of life, as the cult of death in all its forms: perversion, apathy, degeneracy, theft, violence, hedonism, solipsism, and lying become the means by which unsound and corrupt people maintain their positions and lifestyles at the expense of their fellows.

 Destruction of freedom, as the ability to travel, speak, write, associate, work, think, or dissent becomes a phantom of some poorly-recalled past that fades as the new generations grow up not even knowing these things, let alone remembering them.

And if this hasn't gone on long enough, take a few more minutes and listen to Bill Whittle give you the history of the Democrat party. It will give you fuel to be on the offensive.  Never, ever allow yourself to be on the defensive.  You set the parameters of any discussion you may be sadly called to have with a hateful libtard.

Homosexuals getting "married" doesn't affect me one tiny little bit...w/Update

except when it does.


 Rowan County (Kentucky) Clerk Kim Davis is now facing litigation because of her refusal to issue marriage licenses.


The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky filed a class action lawsuit on Thursday, saying Rowan County and its clerk are depriving citizens of their constitutional rights to be legally permitted to marry in their home county.
The ACLU will represent four couples from Rowan County, not all of which are in same-sex relationships. The couples named in the suit are April Miller and Karen Roberts; Shantel Burke and Stephen Napier; Jody Fernandez and Kevin Holloway; and L. Aaron Skaggs and Barry W. Spartman.
According to the ACLU release, two are same-gender couples and two are opposite-gender couples; all were denied licenses by Davis.
Davis’ decision to not issue licenses came after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Friday that validated same-sex marriages in all 50 states and requires county clerks to begin issuing licenses in areas where this law was not previously in effect.
Davis halted her office’s issuance of licenses because she said it was against her religion to appear as if she was condoning same-sex relationships.

And the money quote: 
“Ms. Davis has the absolute right to believe whatever she wants about God, faith and religion, but as a government official who swore an oath to uphold the law, she cannot pick and choose who she is going to serve, or which duties her office will perform based on her religious beliefs,” said ACLU of Kentucky Cooperating Attorney Laura Landenwich in the release.  source
Does that mean we are getting ready to impeach Odumbo for picking and choosing which laws he wishes to uphold or change at will?  Silly question.

As Erick Erickson said:  You will be made to care

Yes, indeedy.  No more sitting on the sidelines.  Choose your side, and choose wisely.

Update:

See what happens when you don't care?
