“Progressivism is a mental disorder.”
Or at the least Irritable Bowel Syndrome...........:)
Agree. Liberals might just be well meaning people who are being simpleminded. No way to construe progressives as being well meaning.
I can't help but be reminded of David Horowitz's piece on the "Panthers" called "Black Murder Inc.". A recollection of his time as a progressive, before the murderous and criminal ways of the "New Left Vanguard" (The Panthers) removed the scales from his eyes.
His book "The Black Book of the American Left Vol 1" is as enlightening as it is disturbing.
Progressivism as he explains quite well isn't as much a mental disorder as it is an amalgamation of dreamers, ignorant cowards, murderous criminals and a healthy dose of willful blindness.
Exceptionally put, brother. I could not have conveyed it better.
"Progressivism...is an amalgamation of dreamers, ignorant cowards, murderous criminals and a healthy dose of willful blindness."
In a nutshell - LIBERALS.
Bro Ed - that was a much better comment than mine hands down. I cannot post my thoughts on these new progs, both left and right versions.
A few comments from not-my-president:
-“They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
-“Get in Their Faces!”
-“Hit Back Twice As Hard”
-”We talk to these folks… so I know whose *** to kick.”
-“hand to hand combat”
-“Punish your enemies.”
-“I’m itching for a fight.”
-"We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for a ride, but they gotta sit in back."
-"If GOP policies were deli food, they'd be a stinkburger or a meanwich.
-People who want photo ID to vote "...are the real frauds"
-“They [Republicans] don’t do anything, except block me and call me names,”
-"They shouldn’t be running the House and they sure should not be running the Senate.”
To verify the above Obama quotes Google search the quote itself; most are on video.
Obama referred to Tea Party protesters as "tea-baggers" (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=teabagger "A man who squats on top of a woman’s face and lowers his xxxxxxx into her mouth during sex, known as teabagging")
And democrats wonder why so many of us can't stand the sight of him!

Has the FFRF ever fought anybody but Christians?
I’ll look into that – I’m curious.

You do see the silly-ness of belittling someone for apparently not allowing diversity of thought, don’t you?
 September 15, 2014 at 5:14pm
People who see the world as ‘my side – your side’ are the problem
The dividers aren’t the problem, it’s the dividees.

I don’t understand your argument…
There have always been laws that regulate behavior that have nothing to do with religion.
 September 12, 2014 at 7:05pm
Put another way:
Jesus ‘invites’ you when he says “Come, follow me”.
He does not grab you by the wrist.
My religion teaches me that compulsion is the tool of Satan.
 September 12, 2014 at 7:02pm
I think you’re confusing the concept of ‘right and wrong’ (a definition of moral behavior), with the ability to choose.
 September 12, 2014 at 5:46pm
Too often the argument is put forth that having a leader who is deeply religious (in this case a President who us Christian) will lead to a theocracy.
This in turn takes them down the slippery slope of Taliban comparisons, or of the stoning of gays, or mandatory church attendance.
I fail to see that outcome.
The founding fathers were deeply religious and had nothing but the deepest respect for those of other faiths – show me something in the Constitution or the a Declaration that is discriminatory to those who aren’t Christian.
To my knowledge we have never had an openly atheist, Jewish, Muslim, or any other non-Christian President, yet we have never been subject to any of the types of abuses anti-religionists predict.
Have there been bad laws? Sure.
Have we have misguided doctrines? Sure.
But these were as much a result of the times as they were to the religious zeal of our President.
Christianity respects life…reveres education…demands compassion…allows for freedom of choice….and when understood and practiced properly will lead a person to the greatest peace and prosperity possible.
In short, though there set a few scattered examples of Christainity gone wrong, it is not the boogey-man that the naysayers say it is.
I would argue that a purely scientific, rational, logical, government would be the most oppressive government ever devised.

You want to see the far left, visit the Daily Kos.
It’s where I finally understood the ‘bleeding eyeballs’ expression.

I bet there are more things we agree on than we disagree on.
I admire your courage.

In the past, I have been guilty of claiming that same-gender attraction is a choice…I have since come to understand that it is more complex then that.
There are many factors, and each person is different.
I, like you, recognize that these organizations “…help build a strong moral foundation among youth.”, however, unlike you (apparently), I include sexual activity among my morals.
However, although I believe that youth should be taught that marriage is between one man and one woman, and that sexual relations outside the bounds of marriage are wrong, I do not believe that children who ‘struggle’ (my view) with same-gender attraction, or who are promiscuous should be excluded…but again, they should be taught what ‘moral behavior’ is.

Thanks for posting some of the guidelines, I find it very interesting.
For instance, as much it may appear that this organization was formed to ‘keep gay kids out’, it is apparent that it also wants to keep ‘Mormons’ out.
Young men who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints accounts for approximately 30% of the membership of the BSA.
The proviso of belief in a ‘Triune God’ in their application excludes ‘Mormons’ because we believe that God the a father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three separate beings.
Oddly enough, even though the LDS church has a large number of youth and adult leaders in the BSA, it does not force its doctrine on the youth.
Again, thanks for the info.

Agreed…monogamy would cut down on STDs.
Admittedly, I have no idea if there are diseases specific to same gender relationships.
 September 10, 2014 at 6:20pm
You’re being disingenuous…
Immoral behavior is not confined to homosexual behavior.
If everyone (heterosexual or homosexual) followed the advice of abstinence before and fidelity after choosing a partner, then the instance of STDs would drop dramatically.
Agree, or disagree?

If we understand that part of the plan is to “[undermine our] faith and trust in [our] government”, we will get out if this mess.
But, if we don’t, then instead of replacing politicians we will replace political systems.
Obama and his minions try to convince us things are ‘broken’…from our immigration system to our Congress to our economic system…all f them ‘broken’ and in need of replacement, not repair.
Preach the virtues of our founding principles!
Tout the value of a free market capitalistic economy!
The system is NOT broken…those who are running it (ruining it) are!
