The Mormon Double Standard

Being the son of a devout mormon that held rank in the priesthood, I think I'm qualified to at least point this out.  Mitt Romney has been put under attack for his mormonism, as people have an uncanny ability to insult and denegrate than which they don't understand.  Many christians have called the mormon religion a cult, ironic since they are decendants of christians who faced the same accusations.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has holy texts that are supposedly another testament of Jesus Christ.  Many christians believe that adding to The Bible is in itself blasphemy. 

These jackasses can argue all they want, but their religious beliefs are no less far-fetched.  After all, Christians believe in a Bible that has been edited and re-tranlated by the most powerful among us (King James comes to mind).  Most small children are able to tell that the stories held within these sacred texts have a few holes.

A great example is the story of Noah.  Basically God pulled an Andrea Yates on all of his children, drowning all of them save Noah and his wife, and whatever animals happened to fit on that mythical boat of his.  He flooded the lands, to accomplish this, and apparently Noah was the only guy with a boat.  Every animal we have today was represented on that Ark of his?  Even the tasmanian devil, giraffe, eagle, chicken, fox, wolf, polar bear, lion, tiger, bear, elk, deer, rabbit, bobcat, were on this boat.  How did Noah keep them from eating each other?  40 days is a long time for these animals to survive without food, don't you agree?  As of 2010 we've found over 1.3 million species of animals on earth.  That comes to 2.6 million animals on a wooden ark that Noah built himself. 

Many Christians are reading this and screaming "You're missing the point!"  On the contrary, I'm making a point.  The story of Noah was to let the faithful know that if they got out of control, God would just smite them and start over.  More so, the story is an affirmation of God's power and that you should worship Him.  Without faith in God, this story is little more than an obvious fabrication.  My point is that Mormons and Christians of other Denominations all believe in something an agnostic like myself can only be skeptical of.  It's amazing that these guys are at the throats of Mormons, who by personal experience are more pious than any of the other denominations of the Christian faith.  As an agnostic, I myself believe anyone who claims to have all of the answers is either incredibly arrogant, or taking you for a ride.  I chose to be an agnostic because it's the only belief humble enough to admit ignorance. I don't know for sure there's a God, because I can't prove his existence.  I can't disprove the existence of a higher power either, so I simply say:  "I don't know."

Now that I've addressed the idiocy of attacking religion, it's time to explore the double standard our media has for Mormon politicians.  Mitt Romney has a target on his back for his mormon faith, as anyone who is paying attention would know.  The mainstream media is painfully unaware that one of their champions, their golden boy from Nevada Harry Reid is a mormon.  Why is Reid not under constant attack for his faith?  Because Reid is a Democrat, and Democrats can do no wrong in the mainstream media's eyes.

This double standard on the faith of politicians is just one of the many ways our media has kept us uninformed and uneducated.  By the way, Thomas Jefferson knew how dangerous a nation of dumbasses was. 

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
Thomas Jefferson

We can't be expected to hold the media accountable, when all we care about is how our sports teams are doing.  We are no different than the citizens of Rome who were distracted from the corruption of their government by the violent games of death in the coliseum.  That's life in the decline of a great empire.

The Plan to Save America

What's your plan to save America?  Mine's to run it just like we run things on the state level here in Texas.

One thing I've noticed, people keep saying a national sales tax will be unfair, but none seem to want to explain their position.  The only valid point I've read is that seniors will be double taxed on their Roth IRA retirement.  That's a problem easily fixed with an exemption, we just need a way to let retirees prove to merchants the money they're using is from a retirement fund.  A checkbook or debit card would be easy enough of a fix for me. 

I live in Texas, and I'm proud of my state for having no income tax.  Income taxes are the enemy, they punish success and reward failure, as well as lead us down a dangerous path to communism.  Now, Texas doesn't tax income, but we make up for it by taxing everything else.  Fortunately, almost all of these taxes seem necessary.  Common sense stuff like $0.20 per gallon of gasoline to maintain the roads, $1 per 300 pound barrel of oysters taken from Texas waters, etc.
Texas is hurting less than every other state right now, and it's because our government has the good sense to trim the fat when we have budget shortfalls.  As a matter of fact, for 2011 we were facing a $27 billion shortfall.  By the end of our very short legislative session which only meets every two years, we ended up with a $4 billion surplus, without touching our $9 billion rainy day fund.

Not bad for a state with no income tax revenue.  The best part about living here in Texas is when tax season comes around and the federal government is raping your wallet, the state government leaves you alone.

DOJ Will Not Investigate Attack of Civil Rights Activist

If you needed any more evidence of the level of corruption that exists inside the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) when it comes to enforcing civil rights statutes, here it is.

On March 15, 2011, civil rights activist Ted Hayes testified, by invitation, before the Judiciary Committee of the Maryland House of Delegates, against providing taxpayer dollars for in-state tuition benefits for illegal aliens. Shortly after his testimony, Mr. Hayes was subjected to vicious retribution by a radical Hispanic group known as “The Timmytop,” which posted a hate video on a YouTube channel that included racist smears and death threats.
The video begins with the message “[expletive] you ‘Mayate,’” which is reportedly a racist and derogatory term used to smear African-Americans and “dark skinned” people. The video then streams a series of racist images including: The silhouette of a man hanging from a noose; photos of Mr. Hayes adjacent to photos of monkeys and bananas; and doctored photos of Mr. Hayes pictured with a gun next to his head. The video, which runs two minutes and nine seconds, concludes with the message “Your [sic] FREE Now Mayate go back to Africa.”
The video has since been removed from its original placement on YouTube, but it is available on Judicial Watch’s website here. (If you choose to watch it, please be warned that it is extremely offensive and unfit for young eyes.)
You might think that this type of vile behavior would earn the interest of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. (That’s what we thought, too.) After all, this is the division at the DOJ that is responsible for investigating and prosecuting violations of civil rights, including, and perhaps especially, those that could have a chilling effect on the First Amendment. In this case, you have the intimidation of a witness through death threats and humiliation.
Judicial Watch filed a complaint with the DOJ regarding the matter on April 28, 2011, calling for a full investigation. And recently we received a response directly from the office of Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez (of Black Panther scandal fame). It was short and sweet:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted an investigation into the matter referenced in your letter. We and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California reviewed the results of that investigation and concluded that this incident does not constitute a prosecutable violation of the federal criminal civil rights statutes. Accordingly we cannot authorize a criminal prosecution of this matter.
That’s it. No further explanation. No review of the evidence “reviewed” by the DOJ. Not even a concession that the treatment of Mr. Hayes was reprehensible and wrong. Just a flat out rejection and a lame reference to the DOJ’s general commitment to “combating violations of federal law that are motivated by racial or ethnic bias.”
So here we have another in a long line of examples of corruption at the Obama DOJ concerning the enforcement of civil rights laws. Apparently the enforcement of civil rights at the DOJ no longer has anything to do with violations of the law. It’s all about racial preferences and partisan politics.
Put another way, had Ted Hayes been a left-wing activist testifying on behalf of illegal alien tuition and attacked by white “conservatives,” Perez would have sprung into action. Trust me on that.
How do I know? Just look at the record!
First, consider the Black Panther scandal discussed in the first Weekly Update story. The DOJ dismissed it’s own voter intimidation lawsuit filed against members of Black Panthers, who hurled racial epithets and threatened white voters at a polling station in 2008. The Obama adminstration said no political appointees were involved in this decision. In fact, Perez himself testified to this effect. This testimony was false. JW uncovered evidence that indeed political appointees at the highest levels inside the Obama DOJ were involved. And why is this important?
According to The Washington Post, “[DOJ attorney J. Christian] Adams and a Justice Department colleague have said the [Black Panther] case was dismissed because the department is reluctant to pursue cases against minorities accused of violating the voting rights of whites.”
Describing the environment over at the Obama DOJ, Christopher Coates, a DOJ attorney, testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that there exists at the DOJ “…a deep-seated opposition to the equal enforcement of the Voting Rights Act against racial minorities and for the protection of whites who have been discriminated against.”
So, we know that the DOJ is involved in the race-based selective enforcement of civil rights laws. (Our friends (and client) over at Pajamas Media have also exposed the radical leftists being planted in the career ranks at DOJ, which further explains why a conservative seeking protection can get no justice at Justice.)
Now, Mr. Hayes is black. But he’s not in left-wing lock-step with the Obama administration on the issue of illegal alien tuition. And his attackers just happen to be part of a key voter block for the Obama 2012 re-election campign. So Mr. Hayes evidently is not entitled to any protection under law.
Remember, too, the immigration issue addressed by Mr. Hayes in the testimony that led to threats on his life. The Obama DOJ has taken a “La Raza” approach to the issue, allowing illegal alien sanctuary cities to thrive, while attacking states that want to crack down on illegal aliens. The Obama administration has also begun dismissing deportation cases against a wide range of illegal aliens, including those convicted of violent crimes.
Mr. Hayes is on the opposite side of the fence of Obama on these issues. And it is his politics that seem to define how the DOJ responded to his case. Which is just shameless and unlawful. This is yet another scandal in the Obama/Holder DOJ that ought to result in a new attorney general.

The BC Distraction

Obama has done something no one could have predicted, he release is long form birth certificate.  After 2 1/2 years, he's finally released a certificate of live birth.  Now, why would he release this thing, and why would it have such obvious flaws in it (lightly penciled numbers and x's, father's race as African, etc.  Well, the answer is simple:  Distraction.  The economy is failing, the dollar is failing, and the defense secretary decided to quit.  That's the long and short of it.  Obama needs a boost, and unfortunately, the ignorance and blind acceptance of the American People have given him a much needed boost in the approval polls.  The dumbing down of the American people is almost complete. Even I am making grammatical errors.  Soon we will all be useful idiots, and who's to say that's not a good thing.  After all, ignorance is bliss.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Today is Adolph Hitler's birthday.  Hitler is considered one of the most, if not the most evil man in history.  He committed mass genocide, and managed to drag the entire world into a second world war.  There is no question that Adolph Hitler was an evil man, but I have a question of my own:  Did Hitler realize what he was doing was evil?  Did Hitler realize he himself was evil?  How could a man commit such arocities, unless he thought he was doing good for his country and the world?  Perhaps Hitler felt he was ushering in a new era for humanity, where the weak are not tolerated and allowed to burden the strong.  He felt that through eugenics, the human race could attain even greater heights.  Phrenology and other junk sciences were the basis of his thinking.  Thankfully today, most of us realize the shape of your skull has nothing to do with your intelligence.

The most amazing thing about Adolph Hitler, is the fact that he was not German (if you stayed awake in history class, you know Hitler was Austrian), yet managed to rise to the highest seat of power in Germany.  He used scapegoats to explain the tough economy in Germany at the time, the Jews being the most famous, but not the only ones oppressed by Hitler's Nazi party.  Why were the Jews such an easy target?  Well, they have money.  It's very easy to convince an ignorant uneducated population to blame their problems on people more fortunate or harder working than themselves.  This is the mentality socialism thrives on, and modern socialists are still using the same tactics.

Now, I know there will be plenty of jack-holes out there calling me paranoid for saying what I'm about to say, and that's okay.  After all, who's to say I'm right?  I'm not even sure if I'm right, but I have suspicions based on the history I've shared above. 

Today the United States of America has it's first socialist president, and the class warfare mentality is thriving in this country.  Everyone that doesn't work feels entitled to the same luxuries working people enjoy.  While some in America will still point to the Jews as the problem, they are generally dismissed as anti-semetic and ignorant.  However, blaming wealthy people for the problems of the poor is still par for the course for a socialist government. 

Hitler managed to grab power by capitalizing on disaster (the burning of the Reichstag).  Who's to say our government is not doing the same thing?  Some smelly terrorists knock down a couple of skyscrapers, and all of the sudden Americans are okay with having TSA Agents feel them up, make them take off there shoes, irradiate them with body scanners, etc.  The government also found a way to go to war in two different countries, ignoring the fact that most of the 9/11 highjackers were from Saudi Arabia (a supposed ally).  After 9/11 the government grew in scope and size, while the liberties of its citizens dwindled, and continue to dwindle.  Who's the big winner in the 9/11 disaster?  Well, the US Government.  If you've read "The Prince" by Machiaveli, you already know what I'm getting at.

Today is not only Hitler's birthday, but also the anniversary of the Gulf Coast BP Oil disaster.  This is probably a coincidence, but it raises my paranoid suspicions.  One oil rig blows up, and the next thing we know the executive branch of government shuts down the entire industry.  The courts ruled that the moratorium was unconstitutional, so the executive branch simply re-issued the moratorium, blatantly disrespecting the judicial branch, as well as the US Constitution.  This makes oil prices go up, causing more stress on our already dying economy.  Luckily, Obama's buddy George Soros happens to have just recently invested in Brazilian oil production.  Just another coincidence right?  I'm just being paranoid, right?

As you may have noticed, even well over halfway into his presidency, Obama has still managed to blame George W. Bush and "Rich people" for the country's economic plight.  Nevermind that over half of our population is now using government assistance in some way or another.  Nevermind the fact our public schools are overburdened with illegal aliens, and education standards continue to slip in this country.  Nevermind the entitlements this country inspire more laziness than anything.  Remember, weak economies allow socialism to fester and grow in power.  Disasters are their favorite tool, as Rahm Emanuel has said, to push through otherwise unpopular ideas and policies.

There are still quite a few questions about Obama's past, as well as speculation that he is not a Natural Born Citizen and therefore, ineligible to hold the office of the President.  Whether he is or not, neither side can (or is willing) to prove his eligibility either way.  I personally think Obama's unilateral attack on Libya without Congressional approval is grounds enough for impeachment, but the birther movement is still quite important.  Next time you say it doesn't matter whether Obama is a natural born citizen, just try and remember how German Adolph Hitler was.
