Friday Open Thread – September 21st

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      Here are a few things to ponder about Obama and his Democratic Socialist Cabal.

      There is no difference between the principles, policies and practical results of socialism—and those of any historical or prehistorical tyranny. Socialism is merely democratic absolute monarchy—that is, a system of absolutism without a fixed head, open to seizure of power by all corners, by any ruthless climber, opportunist, adventurer, demagogue or thug.

      When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as “human rights” versus “property rights.” No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the “right” to “redistribute” the wealth produced by others is claiming the “right” to treat human beings as chattel.
      There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism—by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.

      “Foreign Policy Drains U.S. of Main Weapon,”
      The Los Angeles times, Sept. 9, 1962, G2

It isn’t political stuff that he makes up, though he invents people, circumstances etc. he has also been known to go after people personally if he doesn’t like something they do or say. Like contacting their employer, badmouthing in general, harassing them at their home – that kind of stuff.

          KD has talent and some occasional streaks of work that are good reading but he is neither stable nor safe. I don’t think zero’s campaign is involved…if they were, KD would drive the meme of “I have top secret information that I can’t tell where it came from; but I have to go meet them next week and it’s gonna cost $500 minimum…so give me more money….” We’ve deliberately avoided the subject both because we have lives to live and wanted to get on with that, and also because we don’t want to organize our lives around some nasty thing that someone did,,,,but it’s also all right to clarify what is so regarding Kevin Dujan, so this bit of update on it for new readers is fine. 😉

    Now there’s a story you don’t see every day. “An Ohio Amish sect leader and 15 of his followers were convicted on Thursday of…a string of beard- and hair-cutting attacks on other Amish people last autumn that shook the religious community.”

    Now your imagination is starting to run wild, isn’t it? And admit it, you’re seeing the funny side of this story, aren’t you? It’s a storm in a teacup, right?

    Well, it might be, except that the words I replaced with ellipses above are “federal hate crimes in connection with” – and it **really** stops being funny when you get to the line, “Federal guidelines call for a sentence of 210 months in prison for hate crimes.”

    Now of course what these people did was wrong, aggressive, insulting, demeaning, perhaps even violent – I get that. And I’m sure there’s a lot more to the story. But bearing in mind that no one was hospitalized, no one is dead, and hair will grow again…can it conceivably be called justice when the perps are facing 17-1/2 years in jail b/c of their hateful **thoughts**?

    Can you commit a hate crime against another member of the same minority group as yourself?

      Just had a phone call from my neighbor across the street. Taking her daughter to school, she noticed HUGE clusters of pro-Obama signs on a half dozen Hispanic-owned residences. But they are on.city.parking!!! Also the public city park is festooned and loaded with them!

      She called City Hall and was promptly given over to the Building Inspection dept. We just hired a new inspector but oddly, all calls of this nature are transferred to the ass’t inspector who is Hispanic. He told my friend he’d “have to look into it,” She has tangled with this guy many, many times and any Hispanic infractions never see any action. Fuming, she hung up and called me. Told her to try the City Attorney who happens to be a friend of ours, bass in my choir and is one of the RNC local heads. She left a voice mail, but his secretary assured her he would call back within the hour.

      Last year the city removed a garage sale sign from the parking in front of my house because it is city property. Oh, and if we wanted the sign back we’d have to pony up $10 ransom!! It was a plywood sign hubby handpainted but we basically said keep it. So if there’s no action on this BO sign thing, we will be marching on city hall today!

    Dinner?

    Sol —

    As we’re organizing the last dinner with supporters on my last campaign, our kind of politics is running up against a very cynical calculation:

    That a few billionaires writing $10 million checks are enough to overpower the voices of millions of Americans.

    That’s why I want to meet you for dinner.

    Donate $5 or whatever you can to our people-powered campaign, and be automatically entered to join me — hotel and airfare covered for you and a guest.

    Overnight, we aren’t going to change the rules that allow outside groups to spend hundreds of millions of dollars attacking me on the airwaves.

    So we have to stay on the case every day.

    Last week we learned that more than 1.1 million donors in August alone — out of more than 3 million people like you supporting this effort — had outraised Mitt Romney and the Republicans for the first time since April.

    If we keep doing this our way, I guarantee you there’ll be no stopping us.

    Donate $5 or whatever you can today and you’ll be automatically entered to be at the table:

    https://donate.barackobama.com/Dinner

    Thanks,

    Barack

    P.S. — If you’re planning on donating to this campaign at some point in the future, don’t wait. Your grassroots donation means more today because it can be put to work right now, building the organization it will take to win. Exactly 47 days to go.
