“What kind of moral idiot measures the impact of a certain evil on his own life and calibrates his concern accordingly?
The same majority of Americans who don’t give a crap about the men drowned, beheaded and blown up by ISIS. They also don’t show the slightest concern about the children sold into sexual slavery by ISIS or the women raped, tortured and killed by the same happy band of lunatics. They also turn a blind eye to the gay men thrown off of the roofs of buildings by ISIS, then have their heads blown off if they don’t die in the fall. This is happening every single day on the other side of the globe while shoulder-shrugging Americans wave their rainbow flags, dance in the streets and complain that they can’t get a cake.
No one cares about reality, Matt, and that is the simple, horrific truth. And, oh, they don’t believe in absolute truth either because if they did, they’d have to be accountable.
I’m sad. Sad for this morally wrecked country and the hoards of clueless who seem to populate it.
I always loved that argument.
"Why have an opinion about something going on in your life and your country when there are bad things going on thousands of miles away?"
The thumbs up icon on this post is green! When I clicked on it, the count went down one. Hmmm. Anyway, outstanding post! The term moral idiot is well chosen. The word "idiot" comes from the Greek idios, which simply means "one's own". So an idiot is a person who thinks only of himself. America is the Islamic State's target. We can scoff all we wish, thinking they will never succeed.

I believe this country has been greatly BLESSED by God and this is largely because the US was firmly founded on Biblical principles and has always been charitable, etc. Since the formation of the state of Israel, we have been a staunch and loyal friend to the Jews – at least until now. God clearly said, “I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you.” Can’t argue with that.
However, I do not believe the United States has a special COVENANT relationship with God. I don’t believe this because it is not in the scripture. It might be in the writings of men, but it is not in the canon of scripture. If it isn’t there, it doesn’t exist.
As this country falls farther into the moral and scriptural abyss, as we abandon and reject Israel, and as we abandon and reject God, the blessing of God will be lifted. It has always happened that way and it always will. Read the first chapter of Romans. We are living this.
much wisdom in your post , God bless you hia. have a nice day!
"the US was firmly founded on Biblical principles"
I read and hear this a lot. What exactly are the "Biblical principles" the US was founded on?
The only things I have ever identified for myself is slavery and women not being equal to men.

Obama gets halos and Cruz gets a gun in his face. Tells you all you need to know.

I recorded this and have yet to watch it. My ancestral line runs strong through the Republic of Texas and I have no interest in more distortion of history. It will be deleted from my DVR. How these people get away with calling themselves “The History Channel” is a mystery to me.

No one on network or cable news is reporting this story correctly. The residents of this community are trying to speak out and set the record straight but no one in the media wants to hear them.
This is just one more case where the reporting of the story must fit the narrative and the FACTS be damned. Look for more and more of this.

Though Cruz is my main man, I tend to prefer a governor that has proved he/she can govern a successful state. That would be Perry and Walker. Governors generally make better presidents because of their ability to…well…govern. Notable exception being Jimmy Carter who was a lousy Governor before being a lousy President.
I leave Bush out of my governors list because I will never, ever in any scenario vote for him. If necessary, I will vote for the desiccated remains of George Washington before I will cast a vote for Jeb and that is final. If this wackdoodle country prefers Hillary Clinton (or whatever Commie the democrats decide to nominate), then the country deserves what it gets.
I do NOT agree with that. The President mostly DELEGATES authority to persons who have expertise in an area. I do believe that most politicians are where they are because they have delegating experience or at least, someone who is an expert at choosing the correct people in that platform/election group.
Kasich is the Governor where I live, Ohio and believe me, if you vote for him, you might as well be voting for Boehner or McConnell. He is a MODERATE and he is no conservative. He pushed Common Core in Ohio and our children ARE FAILING. Test scores are the lowest they have ever been because of CC.
Governor Kasich will NEVER get my vote, SO YOUR THEORY that a Governor makes a better President is not based on stats or facts, in my opinion.
I look at their character, experience as a politician, and what platform he is running on. The most important thing I think, is this: did this politician SAY he was going to do something and then change his mind? WHY? That should be the top question you have when selecting an experienced politician. Say what you mean and mean what you say and never back down as someone who continues to fight for our Constitutional rights in America. THAT is the man/woman I want. I know who they are, but you will have to do your own homework on that.
Right now, we all are thinking that ANYONE is better than Obama. I hope Americans are not falling for that. WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT! Research every single candidate!

Thanks for checking in from Russia. Have a nice day.

And this is the one thing that will NOT happen. Being in the public eye is the desired result.
They just need to write"BC of Obama" underneath the flag.
its up to the person who wears the shirt to decide the message not the person who made it...
IF that was the case the millions of American Flags made in China flying at peoples homes have a totally different meaning than those intended by the owners
"Accidentally correct" ...yes sir, Excellent

So, Memorial Day is all about Obama now. In 2015, it’s a day to reflect and remember the sacrifice this wonderful man made for our country. Folks, enjoy your holiday and be sure and have a kick-butt cookout to honor our Glorious Leader and never forget that everything is All About Him.

What a horrific old bat she is. However, half the country will vote for her simply because she possesses lady bits. God help us.
All that is required is to have a "D" behind her name. Does anyone still believe we can work with them? Our votes are rendered meaningless through fraud. We cannot express an opinion counter to the politically correct. Our "Rule of Law" is now a rule of political correctness. The Constitution has been rendered meaningless. Life itself is meaningless. We are over-run with regulations, the economy is in the tank, the whole country is on the brink of failure. All we have left is to secede - reform under the Constitution and leave the leftists to wallow in their own filth. We do not need them, they need us.

Thousands have died in Nepal; the Middle East is a powder keg waiting for a match; good people are being beheaded, shot, burned to death; women and children are being sold into slavery; racial strife is alive and well in America and the world is going to hell in a speeding hand basket. So this clown takes to the stage in his favorite kind of event – one that’s all about him – and cracks bad jokes at the expense of men and women of honor and character. This man is such an embarrassment and such a fraud. Such a small, angry little man.
Amen and bravo, Matt Walsh. Truth spoken fearlessly.
“Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also.
The body they may kill,
God’s truth abideth still.
His Kingdom is forever.”

Best response I’ve read to this latest outrage. “His Kingdom is forever!” Amen.

Now that he’s a full-on dictator/god, will he start wearing a uniform or royal robes?

Harry Reid is sightless in more than one eye. I truly pity him because he is a sad, pathetic little man.

And the response to this???? Crickets.

I can’t even imagine what Hollywood will do to the apostle Paul. Of course, I’ll never know because I will never see the movie because the BOOK is SO much better. And accurate. I must comment, however, that Mr. Jackman is far to tall and pretty to play Paul. By all accounts, he was probably short and not particularly attractive.
