2 cents:

A WONDERFUL example of the so-called “culturally elite”.
Rowling, wise-up, you are ONLY an author of FICTION. So plz shut up or when you screw up, be a good example of a human being to CHILDREN AND ADULTS and apologize to all those you wronged which would include PRESIDENT TRUMP.

Rediscovering Americanism: and the tyranny of progressivism

Six Minute Interview w Mark Levin

Amazon book link

I read Levin’s book Rediscovering Americanism. I am in the process of re-reading it. It is a scholarly work with fair even-handed analysis. The first half of the book is some tough reading (at least to me) because it is delving into the written words of Rousseau, Hegel, Marx etc. Levin then provides a history of progressivism which IMO is a nomenclature which couches the philosophy and goals of these individuals and their followers, in a term that is deceptive implying something good. I know he didn’t coin the phrase and that he is actually using their vocabulary and then providing the information, history of what it actually is. His final analysis and conclusion are correct IMO. Rediscovering Americanism… is a great work and one that everyone should read.

Let us, that voted for President Trump and others who are fed up with the liars and fake news producers UNITE on July 3, 2017 to BOYCOTT Jeff Bezos….BOYCOTT his bread and butter…. the website AMAZON.com.

No purchases from AMAZON and also just importantly, whatever you would have purchased from them on July 3, give the business if possible to a local store or at least somewhere elsewhere. Deprive AMAZON.com your $$$$. 

Then, let’s see if we can make it a habit.

Dear President-elect Donald Trump

PLEASE – on your first day in office release to the world the proof that Israel has that the anti-semitic resolution recently written was by O’s administration.

PLEASE – release a week later the frivolous “proof” that O was wheeling and dealing that MSM has as usual embraced which supposedly proves Russia helping you in the election.

You and your administration need to communicate to the citizens of the country first in methods/ways outside the MSM and then to the MSM. This is the only way to force the MSM in reporting truth from your administration.

The Loyal Penguin

March 11, 2016 Leave a comment

Retired bricklayer and part-time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, found the animal back in 2011 when he washed up on a beach, starving and covered in oil.

Joao, who named the penguin Dindim after discovering him in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, decided to take the creature home and nurse it back to health.

Once Dindim was well again, Joao released him back into the wild – and didn’t expect to see the penguin ever again.

ut just a few months later, the South American Magellanic penguin returned to the beach and followed Joao home.

According to Globo TV, Dindim spends eight months with Joao and the rest of the year breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile – 5,000 miles away.

Joao told the Brazilian news channel: “I love the penguin like he’s my own child and I believe the penguin loves me.

“No one else is allowed to touch him. He pecks them if they do. He lays on my lap, lets me give him showers, allows me to feed him sardines and to pick him up.”

t took 11 months for Dindim to be nursed back to full health and for the past four years he has been a loyal visitor to his rescuer.

Joao added: “He arrives in June and leaves to go home in February, and every year he becomes more affectionate as he appears even happier to see me.”

Open-minded

March 5, 2016 3 comments

I lost a supposed friend last Sunday. One who had some different beliefs but was open-minded (supposedly) and we had been friends for about a year. Heck even pen-pals. Open-minded, I love that when people claim that. Yep the person was open-minded as long as I apparently didn’t believe God, the Lord Jesus Christ and Christianity. Open-minded, you underestand, as long as the beliefs are the same as theirs. Open-minded. So far in my limited life experience of almost 51 years, the person who claims such isn’t REALLY. I apparently thanked God too much in my posts when I wrote about blessings and answered prayers.
What is kind of interesting is I have been thinking about the term “open-minded” a bit recently. I had recently heard that for a Christian that being “open-minded” in essence allows ourselves to vex our souls (2 Peter 2:7-8). Put another way, it puts us in constant environments that we know we should not be a part of (ex. abstain from all appearance of evil – 1 Thess. 5:21-22). So I have been thinking about that and what that really means/implies on the whole and to my own self. I am still not sure of the whole paradigm (if that is the correct word to use) but I must agree that I have been getting a bit wore out having to skip posts by individuals who embrace a lifestyle or belief system that is so contrary to mine. I know not everyone agrees with everyone else on everything so that isn’t the issue. It’s more about serious systemic beliefs that I understand to be wrong. So then maybe the fact that the individual isn’t open-minded after all actually means that they have more serious convictions about their own beliefs than I do, which if that is true, means to me I have allowed my soul to be vexed when I was trying to be engaging and open-minded myself. Which gets me to thinking about the phrase “open-minded” and how it should be correctly used/applied. Maybe – though now I am pretty positive it is the case – the willingness to be “open-minded” isn’t always a good thing or more importantly – the right thing.

It is more important in trying to develop relationships and friendships to be true to what you know is right even if that limits the opportunities to gain friendships. After all, for a Christian, the most important relationship one should have is with the Lord. If the chief “aim” of the human being is to glorify and enjoy God I am sure that obedience to Him trumps open-mindedness for the sake of being engaging is not going to lead to success in accomplishing one’s chief aim.
