This week I have had the (DIS)pleasure of listening to some of the craziest stuff ever spoken on the radio. I listen to the news as I drive home from taking the unlearned to the learning center and I keep thinking that I need to duct tape my head.
There are a couple of topics that at first blush appear to be so far removed from one another that there can be no legitimate comparison. If you have ever read one of my posts, then you know that I'll find the connection because of the utter simplicity of my philosophy.
To live your life like I live mine, you simply have to know the difference between right and wrong. If something is right, it cannot be wrong. If something is wrong, it cannot be right. Contradictions cannot exist in reality, you know?
Inevitably, I'll get a comment or e-mail asking, "But what about a woman that gets pregnant because of rape and she wants to abort?"
Simply put, two WRONGS do not make a RIGHT. Let's move on.
I made a comment a while back that I simply do not care about poor people and that is the truth. What that means is that I do not care any MORE about poor people than I do rich ones. I care EQUALLY about those different classes of people if they are unknown to me.
Where that leads is to the point of saying that...at any time, when you take money or wealth from one person, at the point of a gun, you are a criminal. This is exactly what our governments do when they remove money from people that earned it, and give it to people that did not. It is stealing. There is no other way to interpret that and IT IS WRONG.
When our governments ramp up those efforts, the direct result is MORE poor people, because making the wealthy poor does not make the poor wealthy. Just look at the lines at the "non-profits."
This NEVER works, either. Remember Live Aid? Of course you do. How are the food situations in Africa now? Um, they are WORSE. Joubert has a great post about the ideology that has caused the problems in Africa.
You even have an entire political ideology that has developed around stealing money from one person to give it to another. Plus, one of the current leaders of that stupidity thinks that it actually creates JOBS. Do you seriously think that there is a possibility that someone could be so stupid? You have to believe that they are, otherwise, they are MONSTERS, Hell-bent on the slaughter of the human species.
This WRONG ideology has been running the show in our country since January 2007, too. What have these stupid policies wrought?
Matthew 26:52 tells us, "Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword."
That has been truncated into, "Live by the sword, die by the sword" and I am pretty sure that is a good way to live, too.
Also, Matthew 7:1-5 tells us 1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Again, I tell you, it is IMPOSSIBLE to be a Christian (or honest, just, and fair) and promote the ideology of a criminal class of people that steal from the honest to give to the criminal supporters.
BUT! Just this week, we had Warren Buffet say some more stupid crap about taxing wealthy people more to pay for the wastefulness of the ruling class. Just out of curiosity, do you really think that Warren Buffet's money is not sheltered from what he is proposing? He is a BILLIONAIRE, don't you think that he could live comfortably for the rest of his life without ever drawing another PENNY of income? That means that he would never suffer the increase of INCOME taxes he is proposing.
What the increased tax on the people that EARN more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year means, is that the government is NOT going to stop the stealing and redirecting. Do you HONESTLY think that they'll only rob those that make a certain level of income that THEY determine?
What happens WHEN (not IF) they decide they need more money? Well, of course, that higher taxes income level has to start coming DOWN. That is the only way that they have to go.
Do you also realize that when you increase taxes, you diminish the amount of money going to charities? So, the act of raising taxes not only makes more people poor, it makes those that are already poor even poorer.
Now, why is it that you hear all the politicians saying that raising taxes during a recession is BAD? What they are inadvertently admitting is that HIGHER tax rates make for a reducing economy. They ADMIT that raising taxes makes more poor people and makes the economy worse.
With that realization, why would anyone EVER suggest higher taxes? Is it because they think that they will be the last ones that are enslaved?
Seriously, this is really NOT that hard to understand. There is a responsible level of government and we are so past that point, that we need advanced alien civilization GPS to find the way back to that responsible point.
The second topic that I heard about was the showing of the Nissan Leaf. There is so much WRONG about the press releases on this debacle that they defy all imagination.
Zero emissions is the very first thing that they tout. Where exactly does the electricity originate that produces the vehicle? What about the power that charges the vehicle? By what standard that these eco-terrorists have assumed does this vehicle remotely produce zero emissions? From what I can tell, if you drive the car to the limit of its charge, you must replenish the power with a full eight hour charge. In the United States, this energy is mainly produced by coal-fired electric generators. If everyone bought one of these cars and started driving them, we would see an explosion of electricity usage that has never been seen before.
Rolling brownouts would be typical.
To add to this stupidly conceived and manufactured car, the battery is also a rolling nuclear power plant. What happens at the site of the crash? You basically have a Three Mile Island every time one of the Holier-Than-Thou eco-terrorists pulls out directly in front of his/her/ambiguous other's sworn enemy, the tractor-trailer. Maybe we will not have a meltdown, maybe we will.
Where is the environmental consideration?
Furthermore, the Stop Manmade Global Warming Vehicle is financed for rich people on the backs of poor ones. The federal government is STEALING around nine thousand dollars to give to those people dumb enough to buy these cars which only rich eco-terrrorist people can afford.
Please tell me what motivates the WRONG ideologians to promote these ridiculous concepts? For one, they never want to solve a problem, they simply want to appear as if they CARE.
As I stated above, they are either unbelievably stupid or monsters.
Problem solving is a LEARNED skill. Learning requires brain work. No human brain was used in the development of the "Progressive" ideology.
Now, in the history of the world, there has been only one country that dared to promote the concept of natural law, the United States of America. The dead, white guys that wrote our foundational documents had the good sense to acknowledge what G_d told us in the beginning, that every man is given free will. Every man was not only granted that by G_d, but every man was also given the freedom to associate with whom he chose.
We were created as individuals, we function as individuals, and we shall die as individuals. Well, unless some long-haired eco-terrorist pulls out in front of the Blue Bunny ice cream truck and causes a nuclear holocaust that destroys our entire neighborhood.
Please take the time to comment.
