The difference between faith, and science

The Theory of Relativity, the Theory of Natural Selection (not to be confused with religion of evolution) and the Theory of Plate Tectonics are just that: theories. These are not recognized as laws. Science does not work that way.
Scientific method works by a process of elimination. A hypothesis, or educated guess, is proposed. An experiment is designed and facts are gathered. One solid piece of contrary evidence can disprove the hypothesis but no amount of evidence in support of the hypothesis proves the theory. Dis-proving alternate or competing hypotheses is the only way to strengthen a hypothesis. This is the only logical way of handling complex problems involving many variable factors.

This is illustrated by the White Swan exercise. If I say that all swans are white how many swans do I have to show you to prove my hypothesis is true? 100, 1000, 10,000,000? No, I have to demonstrate that every swan past present or future is or was white. How many swans of any different color have to be found to immediately disprove my hypothesis? One. In the case of Einstein's theory of relativity, it has not been proven true, but all competing theories have thus far been disproven. The same with continental drift and plate tectonics. Likewise with natural selection.
So for obamarx, algore, or some other political moronic gas bag to say that the science is settled and the debate is over on anthropogenic climate change, i.e. Global Warming, is not only absurd but untrue and impossible according to the scientific method and all logic.

What it is, is a belief based on faith. I will not debate the sociological merits of religion or my particular beliefs here. Religion can and most times is a positive influence in the lives of people. But there are beliefs, that especially when taken to extreme, are destructive. The current radical followers of this movement are destructive. It does not bother me that a person chooses to believe in the green movement. We are all entitled to our beliefs. All that I am asking is that we call it what it is and not set public policy based on hypotheses which are not capable of being proven and ate NOT universally accepted.
Christianity and Greenism are both faith based ways of explaining the world.

Let me illustrate:
A long long time ago the earth and all that is in it was brought into existence. All the animals and plants lived in harmony and nature and it was wonderful. After a period of time humans arrived on the scene and became the dominant species on the earth and soon after that things began to go horribly wrong. People were wicked and did many things to hurt the natural order of things. They were warned that unless they ceased their wicked ways and returned to the more original way of things they and the earth would be destroyed. Part of man's redemption can be obtained by living in a prescribed manner and denying oneself certain pleasures. Some people are encouraged to live a life of chastity and pacifism. There are certain proscriptions against eating certain foods and rules for the proper growth and preparation of foods. Certain rules regarding sex and procreation are observed. The proper use and distribution of money is laid out. Treatment, and care of animals is discussed.

Now, what have I described, judeo-Christianity and Islam, or the green/animal rights/ environmentalist movement?

It is not science. It is a religion. It is a religion masquerading as science. And it is a false religion and poor science at that. And now we have the emails that not only prove their was an active effort to supress alternate data and hypotheses, but that the perpetrators knew it was not science all along.

As to your personal religious beliefs, believe what you want; I suppport your right to do so, let's just acknowledge that is what they are, and don't force them on me.

My Good Blogging Friend Foutsc from over at Western Hero had this to add:
Good explanation, Kook. The word "Science" is thrown around to induce hushed silence in the masses, many of whom have no idea about what you just described. No shame in that, all of us are not scientists.

"To piggyback upon what you said, peer review means you turn over the raw data and your experiment methods so others can independently verify or refute your conclusions. Since they've destroyed much of the raw data, that is impossible.  Global Warming is a Global Swindle.  I posted something similar to this today."

Muslim Thanksgiving

Every Year, the Muslims embark on the Haj ritual. This is a ritual that every Muslim must undertake once in his life to be considered a true Muslim. I could make all sorts of religious jokes here, but that would be hypocritical. In the summer here, it rains on the way to or from Church, more often than than not, so it just goes to show that the Good Lord smiles on everyone equally.

Rain Complicating Islamic Hajj
Updated: Thursday, November 26, 2009 8:44 AM

eavy downpours at Islam's holiest site sent millions searching for cover Wednesday, the opening day of Islam's annual Hajj.

A cold front which moved through northern and central Saudi Arabia is to blame for the
heavy rain, which brought 2.76 inches to Jiddah, more than the city would normally have in a year. In nearby Mecca, streets were flooded, and electricity flickered on and off during the day.

Jiddah is a common entry point on the Red Sea for those wishing to attend Hajj. From there, followers
travel the nearly 40 miles to Mecca. With streets flooded, and some roads closed, travel between the two cities came to a standstill.

At the Kaaba in Mecca, the courtyard was nearly empty as the
rain poured down. This area is generally packed during opening day.

With more showers expected through Friday, additional fears are beginning to arise. The
mountains surrounding Mecca are a place where many of the event's rites take place, and they are prone to mudslides. Also, additional flash flooding is possible.

Organizers fear that the event's biggest danger, stampedes, will also be magnified with the uncooperative weather.

Travel through Friday will be difficult as the millions move between sites. By Saturday, the weather is expected to improve.

The Giving of Thanks

Our nation was founded by people who were fleeing tyranny and religious persecution. They boarded small ships and set sail on a perilous journey across rough waters to arrive in a land where they had nothing. They knew many would not survive what was to come, and yet they were thankful to the creator. Thankful for the opportunity that they felt had been bestowed on them to be able to make that trip. Thankful that they would soon be able to live in a land and make their own way free from an over bearing and all too intrusive government that had long since quit serving their needs. Everything that they were to have was to come from the blood sweat and tears and their labors to tame the land and bend it to their will. Mistakes were certainly made, lives were lost, and yet, they were still thankful. The thanks that they gave as they grew and prospered was to their creator and to their fellow man.

That is the origin of the holiday we will soon be celebrating. It was a feast in rememberance and in thanks for the promise of opportunity and the shared hardships that this land held for them. It was not in thanks to a wise and benevolent king or government for rescuing then from the pain of failure; it was not a day of gluttony and watching a parade or football game.

It was a time to be together and be thankful for family, friends, and God. However, celebrating this day is not uniquely Christian. It is uniquely American. Americans celebrating their exceptional luck at living in the greatest nation that has ever existed. A day of coming together in remembrance of where we have been, and looking forward to the promise that we still can reach if we try; and being thankful for both. A day for being thankful for the gift of being freemen and freewomen, free to pursue life, liberty, and property, that I believe, as did our founders, was a gift from God.

And just as no government gave you your right to be free, government cannot take those rights away. Government is not who we should look to for our future well being, for our health or our wealth. Government is not who we should give thanks to. It is to our creator and to our fellow man who through our shared efforts (not sacrifices) will remain free and prosperous that we should be thankful for. This is yet another fundamental difference between the two ideological sides. The progressives believe that only through the sacrifice of some can others achieve. I believe that only through hard work can we all achieve. It is no sacrifice to work hard and share your efforts with others and also reap the reward of that shared effort. The key is that everyone should put forth the effort; then there is no sacrifice.

That is what our founders believed, it is what we have fought wars to prove and it is what I am thankful for. I am thankful for my friends and family and to all my fellow freedom loving citizens out there, wherever you are.

BBCW: Wall Street Journal Exposes Climategate: Global Warming Scam Proven in Global Warming Advocate's E-Mails

Big Hat Tip for BBCW on this post. 

Wall Street Journal Exposes Climategate: Global Warming Scam Proven in Global Warming Advocate's E-Mails

Oh what a beautiful cold November day. The November rains are here, there is a chill in the air perfect for Thanksgiving, and they are now calling man-made global warming Climategate in a Nixonesque way. Thousands of e-mails posted on the Internet last week that have been verified as authentic by the organization they came from, Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in the U.K., proves global warming is a scam.

From the Wall Street Journal:

A partial review of the hacked material suggests there was an effort at East Anglia, which houses an important center of global climate research, to shut out dissenters and their points of view.

In the emails, which date to 1996, researchers in the U.S. and the U.K. repeatedly take issue with climate research at odds with their own findings. In some cases, they discuss ways to rebut what they call "disinformation" using new articles in scientific journals or popular Web sites.

The emails include discussions of apparent efforts to make sure that reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that monitors climate science, include their own views and exclude others. In addition, emails show that climate scientists declined to make their data available to scientists whose views they disagreed with.

The IPCC couldn't be reached for comment Sunday.

In one email, Benjamin Santer from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif., wrote to the director of the climate-study center that he was "tempted to beat" up Mr. Michaels. Mr. Santer couldn't be reached for comment Sunday.

In another, Phil Jones, the director of the East Anglia climate center, suggested to climate scientist Michael Mann of Penn State University that skeptics' research was unwelcome: We "will keep them out somehow -- even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!" Neither man could be reached for comment Sunday.

The emails were published less than a month before the opening of a major climate-change summit in Copenhagen.

Representatives of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a large professional organization, expressed concern that the hacked emails would weaken global resolve to curb greenhouse-gas emissions. The association believes "that climate change is real, it is related to human activities, and the need to counteract its impacts is now urgent," said Ginger Pinholster, an association spokeswoman. She added that the association's journal, Science, evaluates papers solely on scientific merit.

John Christy, a scientist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville attacked in the emails for asking that an IPCC report include dissenting viewpoints, said, "It's disconcerting to realize that legislative actions this nation is preparing to take, and which will cost trillions of dollars, are based upon a view of climate that has not been completely scientifically tested."

Mojib Latif, a climate researcher at Germany's Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, said he found it hard to believe that climate scientists were trying to squelch dissent. Mr. Latif, who believes in man-made global warming but who has co-authored a paper ascribing current cooling to temporary natural trends, said, "I simply can't believe that there is a kind of mafia that is trying to inhibit critical papers from being published."

You know what I would like to see as the result of this and I bet you would too. I would love to watch Al Gore lose his empire and wind up as a wondering bum on the streets of Nashville. Need an extra blanket Mr. Gore to keep the chill off of you. Those cold winds are quite miserable as they sweep through your underpass home.

Of course, our government will continue to lie to us, because they are going to make nearly $700 billion a year taxing through cap and trade. This has never been about the environment, it’s about income for government. Despite this new evidence global warming is a scam, the criminals in Washington will use global warming to steal from us, and Al Gore will continue to laugh all the way to the bank. These scientists have revealed the scam in their e-mails. We now have the proof coming from the letters of the world’s most crooked scientists. If our government passes cap and trade taxes now, we should look at it as the stamp act and act accordingly.

It’s time to tear down the walls on the lying scientific community!

Florida senatorial battle

In 2010, Florida will be facing a Senatorial battle that will be a microcosm for the fight within the Republican Party Nationwide. IN the near future I will be delving into the voting records of these two candidate as the primary heats up. I will also be temporarily be changing my voter registration to Republican so that I can vote in the Primary. Florida has a closed Primary where independents cannot vote in Republican or Democrat primaries. That does no mean that I am aligning myself with either party, rather I want to be able to vote against Crist what will in a hotly contested primary. This will be the first time in my life I will have ever been registered to any political party and I promise to change my registration back to independent the day after the election.

1st we have the underdog, former speaker of the State House, Marco Rubio
(From Rubio's website: )His main opponent in the GOP primary is Marco Rubio, a 38-year-old Miami native who quotes Snoop Dogg lyrics on his Twitter account. On paper, it looks like a mismatch between an unbeatable juggernaut and a doomed also-ran. Yet Crist may be vulnerable: He warmly embraced President Obama’s stimulus spending and is one of the most liberal politicians in the Republican firmament. Rubio is among the brightest young stars on the right. Their contest could become the sleeper race of 2010.

Here we Have Marco Rubio's stance on the issues from his web page:
SPENDING: “I am gravely concerned by a federal government that continues spending money it doesn’t have. In early 2009, I joined Florida’s entire Republican congressional delegation in opposing the $787 billion stimulus bill. In the U.S. Senate, I will support measures like a balanced budget amendment and the line-item veto that will help control the excessive and wasteful spending in Washington that threatens to leave future generations with crushing debt and a country worse off than that of their parents and grandparents.”

TAXES: “I have never voted for a tax increase. While I generally support tax cuts, I believe meaningful tax reform that simplifies our tax code, makes it easier to understand and is more fair to the taxpayer should be our ultimate goal. In the mean time, I will support efforts to reduce the tax burden on American workers, entrepreneurs and businesses. This includes: eliminating the Death Tax; eliminating taxes on capital gains, dividends and interest, thereby encouraging greater savings and investment; and making America the most attractive place to do business by lowering corporate tax rates.”

JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS: “I support judges who will respect the rule of law, strictly interpret our Constitution and not legislate from the bench. I opposed Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. As a whole, Judge Sotomayor’s record reflects a view that judges can and should inject personal experiences and biases into what should be the objective interpretation and application of the law. While her comments about the “better conclusions” a “wise Latina woman” would bring to the bench are universally known, I have more specific concerns about her case history and testimony regarding the Second Amendment at the state level, eminent domain takings and the so-called constitutional right to privacy that resulted in the Roe v. Wade decision. Together, these and other cases point to a nominee who would bring an activist approach to the highest court in the land.”

SECOND AMENDMENT: “Like the rest of our Constitution, I believe the 2nd Amendment is a cornerstone of our democracy. I believe the right to bear arms is a constitutionally protected right. The right of citizens to defend themselves by bearing arms is a fundamental human right that should be protected.”

IMMIGRATION: “Legal immigration has been a great source of strength and prosperity for America, but I believe illegal immigration threatens the foundation of this system. If I had been in the Senate at the time, I would have opposed the McCain-Kennedy bill. I believe we must fix our immigration system by first securing the border, fixing the visa and entry process and opposing amnesty in any reform.”

ENVIRONMENT: “As a U.S. senator, I would oppose a national energy tax on American consumers, farmers and business owners. At a time when our economy is struggling, a cap-and-trade scheme would further strain family budgets and destroy jobs. Creating jobs in the energy sectors and becoming more energy efficient requires entrepreneurial innovation, not big government mandates. Instead of higher energy bills and job losses, the American people deserve a comprehensive, job-creating energy policy that promotes energy efficiency, alternative energy production and the development of our own natural resources.”

ENERGY: “I support a comprehensive energy plan that encourages nuclear energy, exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and environmentally safe leasing of oil and natural gas fields in the outer continental shelf and on federally owned lands with oil shale in the West. As senator, I will stand for policies that make us more energy efficient, less reliant on foreign sources of oil, create jobs and ease the burden on family budgets.”

SANCTITY OF LIFE: “I am pro-life. As a state legislator, I supported various pieces of pro-life legislation that, among other things, would require doctors to perform ultrasounds before performing abortions and another bill that would ban the use of taxpayer dollars to fund stem cell research.”

CARD CHECK: “I oppose card check and any efforts like the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) to tip labor law in favor of unions through binding federal arbitration. I am concerned by labor unions’ unrelenting campaign for card check, which would eliminate workers’ right to a secret ballot in unionization elections. I believe workers’ rights should be protected and that a card check system would open the door to pressure and intimidation that would disrupt the workplace and threaten businesses’ livelihoods. I also oppose EFCA’s arbitration provision, which would give labor and management just months to reach a labor agreement before a contract is imposed by a federal arbitrator.”

2nd We have the favorite, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist

Charlie Christ's page offered a positions on the issues link. Here it is:


"Protecting Floridians has always been my top priority. From ensuring our safety to protecting our health, from lowering taxes and insurance rates to raising the bar in education, my common sense approach has delivered real results for the people of Florida. It's a record I'm proud of, and it's a record I'm ready to build on as your United States Senator."

I cannot really complain that Crist fails to offer a page on is website as he is too busy being Governor to have decided where he stands on issues. Maybe it's just me imagination but it seems like if you know where you stand on issues, posting those stands should not be that difficult.

Here we have a microcosm of the 2010 midterm election. Crist has all the big name backing and support of the GOP political machine. Here we Have Rubio who has the support of the grassroots groups and libertarian leaning folks such as myself. It will be up to the people to decide whether they want the mother of all RINOS in Crist or a real pro-liberty Republican who wants to change the party from within. I know who I support. I will leave you to decide on your own.

By the way, I got my info off the following sites:

Going Rogue: A Book Report

Going Rogue It is an understatement to say that I read a lot.  I have read many political books.   A few are actually listed on my Shelfari shelf on the blog.  I have read Ted Nugent’s book, Several of Neil Boortz’s, Rush Limbaugh’s, Three of Glenn Beck’s, a couple of Ann Coulter’s, one by Thomas Sowell, Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny, Jonah Golberg’s Liberal Fascism, Phil Valentine’s Conservative Handbook. I read Sarah’s book in about 6 hours.
Even as good as Glenn’s books are, with their comedy and common sense; None of the books previously mentioned  has heart.  Sarah Palin is all about heart.  She loves her God, she loves her Kids, She loves her Family, She loves her friends, and nearly as much as she loves all of that, she loves her State, she loves her country.  And she is tough. as. hell.
I have watched nearly all the interviews and the interviewer can never seem to grasp, and I admit I had difficulty with it as well, why she has done what she has done. The difference between Greta, Sean, Bill, Oprah, and Me is, they had all supposedly read the book before the interview. 
Seriously, after reading the book, why is there any question of why this woman has done anything she has done.  She tells you, it is not her fault if you don’t listen.
I have always LIKED  Sarah Palin.  She is polarizing, and the reasons are the same reasons there is such a huge divide in political thought in this country.  I think some of her views are a little more populist than I would prefer.  I confess I was not, prior to reading, and might still not be afterwards convinced that she is the BEST candidate we could all support.  But she very well may be the BEST we can hope for.   I say this not as a slight to the woman.
Only after reading this book do I realize the depth that the Lamestream media went to destroy her image.  This lady is smart.  Not that Ivy League, raised pinky finger, looking over the top of her glasses, persimmon pucker face, smart that you get out of Obama, the media,  and their Ilk.  Smart like my parents, grandparents and others are, who learn by observing the world around them.  Smart by reading history and attempting to learn from its’ lessons.  Smart in the ways of human nature.  Sure, she went to college and got a degree.  I bet they didn’t teach her one damn thing she had not already learned.
I do not know how much any of the readers know about horse traders, or farmers.  I know a little about them.  Do any of you have any idea how fast a barely “educated” backwoods, tobaccy chewing, redneck hillbilly, with cow or horseshit on his boots can separate a MBA Ivy league graduate from his money?   I imagine it is no different from moose huntin, fish nettin, snowmobile riding Alaskan Good ‘Ol boys.  Sarah grew up with them.  Sarah beat them.  Sarah has beat MBA wielding oil executives and corrupt Ivy League politicians with JDs before.  Just because the liberal elite do not understand her does not mean that she does not understand them.  She says “golly”,  “gosh” and “you betcha”, and looks all folksy and just a tad too beautiful to be taken seriously by these condescending patronizing ivy league east coasters… and the whole time she is scoping them out and is two jumps ahead.  She may not win in the end, but you people better bet your asses she is coming.
You want to understand Sarah Palin?  Fly to TN, KY, MO, or AR.  Rent a car and drive to a small town with a monthly horse sale, go to the nearest wal-mart buy a pair of wrangler jeans, a ball cap, a button up western or flannel shirt, a jean jacket, and a pair of cowboy boots with work soles.  Drive to the sale-barn two hours before the sale starts.  walk up and down the muddy aisles, get plenty of shit on your boots.  See if you can get some horse or mule slobber on your jacket.  You will begin to smell like dirt, sweat, horseshit, greasy cheeseburgers, and tobacco.  Do not go up in the bleachers in front of the ring.  Right up on the main aisle out back  where the horses come into the ring, or way back to the back of the barn there will be three or four guys standing around holding sortin poles.  They will be talking and laughing.  Don’t walk up to them, just get within earshot.  Listen to their stories for about an hour.  Then fly to a town near a great fishing destination, go to the nearest wal-mart, buy a pair of polarized fishing glasses, a ball cap, a pair of jean shorts, a polo shirt, and a pair of boat shoes.  Observe the fisherman as they come back in from the lake to weigh the fish at the tournament.  Go to IA, or MO, to an area where all you see for miles is fields and towns with populations of less than three thousand. Go to a farm supply store, buy a pair of overalls, and a pair of work boots, a T-shirt and a ball cap, go outside and roll around in the dirt.  Take up smoking or chewing, or both. Drive down the main drag early in the morning, look for the grungy coffee shop with about 10 beat up muddy 4x4 trucks with diesel cans, fence posts, balin wire, and rusty tools filling the bed, ease inside and order a cup of coffee and some pancakes and just listen.   In fact hang out in as many small town coffee shops as you can find and listen to the small business owners and the construction workers and the mechanics.
What you will hear in every case is: a lot of laughing, and joking, some insults, and most of all STORIES.  Stories about how the world actually works, how things are actually grown and made, how deals get done, and how to win when people who think they are smarter than you and have more money than you think they have you beaten.
Sarah grew up in a large family in the most rugged place you can imagine.  She grew up hunting, fishing, reading books, hiking, running and playing small town basketball.  Most of all she WORKED.   There is something to be said for that.  She will not be able to outspend you, She probably WILL be able to out smart you, but she will for damn sure OUT WORK YOU. And I think she will lie in bed awake at night and think of how to win.
She isn’t playing the game by their rules.  She is playing the game by hers.  And I think she means to win.  Her downfall if she fails will be because she has ethics, morals, and principles, and her opponent will likely have none.
Honestly, her book knocked my socks off.  It is not quite the tell all book I thought and sort of dreaded it might be. It did confirm our suspicions that elements inside the McCain campaign were either double agents, sarah haters, or buffoons.  They did sabotage every good effort she made. The book is Sarah telling the reader who she is.  She is either a gifted liar or plain spoken and honest because I think I know her now.  She loves her country, her state, her family, and Reagan. She hates corruption, pretense, greed, and politics. She loves hard work, understands sacrifice, the pain of holding fast to your convictions and principles, loves capitalism, hates government intrusion into her life, and wants things to be better long term.
She is one of US.  I will support anything she decides to do, wish her luck and Godspeed, she may be what we desperately need.  IF she makes it, she will need every red blooded American's help to succeed.  Because they will be gunning for her every second of every day.  Problem is, after what they have done to her, what else is there for them to say?  They must be getting short on bullets.
“Sarah’s not retreating, she’s reloading” – Sarah Palin’s Father, Chuck Heath Sr.

Candidate to run against Claire McCaskill in 2012

Claire McCaskill Opoonent 2012

Sorry if this offends…Claire McCaskill offends me.


Healthcare Destruction one step closer. But, Thank you Kit Bond

Well our non-representative senators just barely squeaked the vote by to put the healthcare destruction to the debate. This is one step closer to passage and that is a foregone conclusion really at this point. At least ONE of Missouri's senators did the right thing.

"Move over, Bernie Madoff. Tip your hat to a trillion-dollar scam," said Sen. Kit Bond , R-Mo., likening the bill's supporters to the imprisoned investor who fleeced millions.

Claire McCaskill is a deplorable excuse for a servant of the people


Claire, you suck, you really do.  You are a hateful lickspittle of Botoxi and Chairman Zero.
I am not a blind Sarah Palin Supporter, she is a bit too populist for me.  But she is no longer a politician.  At least not for now.  She is a PRIVATE CITIZEN and you attacked her in your little tweet, you twit.

“@clairemc If we printed the HCR bill in regular sized font it would be same length as Sarah Palin’s book, but with more meat on the bone”
Well, Claire, if my aunt had nuts she would be my uncle.  If we printed the United States Constitution one letter per page it might be as long as the health destruction bill is at 1/2 size font. 
I doubt very seriously that you have read Palin’s book, and if you have, you better have already finished your homework.  Your little twittweet would seem to indicate that you have read both the healthcaredestruction bill as well as Palin’s book.  Since you would have to know what is in both the be telling the truth with your moronic statement.
Fact is you dislike the woman because she is a living breathing example of Pro-Life, Gun Loving, REAL people.  She lives in Alaska and has more in common with Missourians than you do. Since you grew up in the big city.
Palin is a citizen, what is next, wanna take a shot at me?  Go ahead. 
GAH, I have moved from disliking you to actively plotting the destruction of your career you Obama Botoxi Lickspittle. 

What if: I think I may know what Glenn Beck is doing.

glenn beck Glenn has said repeatedly in recent shows that his show is going to change next year.  He has expressed the idea that he has done his job of exposing the rampant and seemingly never-ending corruption that is the termite nest of communism in our administration.
What if…Glenn shifted his focus to showing us who we should support.  I do not mean to say that Glenn will be endorsing candidates.  I think he will begin to do the opposite of what he has been doing.  Showing us the people in Washington that may be somewhat worth salvaging. 
I have no facts to support this, I just think about these things.  This makes sense.

Why the (His)Panic, Why we are missing the boat with Latinos?

hspncgop2 Western Hero: Why the (His)Panic?

This is a superb piece that I found over on Western Hero by the DeviledEgg posted by Foutsc.  I just want to add my .02c.  I love Latino people.  I love the food, and the culture, their sense of family, their work ethic, and I love the language, even though I am terrible at speaking it.  We, as Conservatives, MUST learn how to reframe the argument.  Our beef is not RACISM.  Our beef is the Rule of Law.  It is not “we don’t want any immigration”, the statement is “we want our immigration laws respected”  But Deviledegg is right, the fault really does lie on our side of the border.  We have got to figure out how to reach out and change the language.  That is what the Liberal Establishment does all the time, they change the language.  Because Latinos are naturally conservative.  They have seen what governmental corruption and the lack of rule of law create…that is why they are leaving their countries. Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia, Mexico, and Cuba… not noted for low corruption and rule of law.

The issue really is not immigration, the issue is one of being law abiding.  If a person will break a law to enter the country, at what point to we believe that a law is important enough to follow?  More importantly, what laws do we expect THEM to follow…  anyway, on to the deviled egg’s rant:

Why the (His)Panic?

** Unhinged DeviledEgg Rant Alert! **

Alright, I'm really PO'd about illegal immigration! 
To think that the retards in congress would reward criminal trespass and identity theft with free US citizenship galls me. It also chaps my ass that any foreign fertility goddess who crosses the border can squeeze out a pup and, bingo! She's won the US lottery!
Who's stupider than us, huh?

But anyway, I started this rant because Hispanics in America are getting a bum rap, and it ain't fair. They ain't all illegal, and the ones that are wouldn't be here if the US Chamber of Commerce, businesses, and the Democratic party hadn't lured them with open borders, pathetic immigration enforcement, no-questions-asked employment and a cornucopia of social services only dreamed of south of the border.

We keep hearing they will one day be the largest demographic group in the US, and whitey is supposed to tremble at the thought. Well, that's like saying German-descent people are the majority now. Yeah, it's true, but your average Yank don't know any Deutsche besides Der Wienerschnitzel and beatchen. We've assimilated.

Hispanics assimilate easily
I know, some treat your neighborhood like little Jalisco, slaughtering hogs in the front yard and playing mariachi music all night... But give them a generation or two. Texas is filled with people with Hispanic last names who don't know a lick of Spanish.

How do I know Hispanics are easily assimilated? The evidence is all around us!
If a guy's name is Jose Ramos and he don't talk like the Frito Bandido no more, he's assimilated!
Hispanics intermarry like crazy. Like coffee and milk, American whiteys and Latin lovers just can't help mixin' it up. And the results are beautiful (excuse my moment of soft-boiled weakness).
If you say to some guy named Rodriguez, "Oye vato! Que onda?" and he says, "Excuse me, I'm with a patient right now," he's assimilated!

The average Hispanic newcomer is:

* entrepreneurial (No safety nets in Latin America!) 
* hard working (again, no safety nets...) 
* anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-tax 
* willing to live in a one bedroom apartment with 58 other men until he saves up for a place of his own 
* and almost as friendly as a drunken Irishman 

la-raza It's a natural GOP constituency if we can just get them out of the shadows and free them from the clutches of social workers waving food stamps and La Raza plying them with illegal ballots and fake drivers licenses.
Here in Europe, the average Brit, Swiss or Dane would trade their Muslims for our Hispanic "problem" in a heartbeat. Count your blessings, Dammit!
The DeviledEgg is prone to unhinged rants, childish outbursts, and fits of anger, but he's really a good egg once you get to know him. He is half German and half American and splits his time between the two countries. Western Hero is proud to add him to the team.

And I am proud to repost this great post

Franks rips Obama administration for Arpaio move 

Daily News-Sun
Below are the complete remarks of  Congressmen Trent Franks of Arizona and Lamar Smith of  Texas in response to reports that the Department of Homeland Security has stripped Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of  his illegal immigration enforcement powers:

“This unbelievable move by the Obama Administration represents a politicized attempt to hinder one of our most effective illegal immigration enforcement mechanisms, the 287(g) program.

“The key to combating illegal immigration is federal, state, and local cooperation.  This is why we believe it is crucial for the federal government to continue to support individuals like Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the implementation of agreements under section 287(g), which provides for the Department of Homeland Security to delegate authority to enforce federal immigration laws to state and local officials.  To date, hundreds of local officers have been trained in enforcing U.S. immigration laws, and nowhere in the country is this more critical than in Maricopa County.  Currently, over 33% of inmates in Maricopa County Sheriff facilities are illegal, and more than 53% of violent crimes in Maricopa County are committed by illegal immigrants.

Pondering the Future

I am on a plane somewhere over the Pacific Northwest. I just finished, for the second time, John Ringo's second book of the posleen war series, Gust Front. If military science fiction is not your thing then I do not suggest it. However, the author makes many many observations on what it means to be human. The value of a human life, humanity's will to survive, and courage in the face of certain doom. Some may find it strange that I am reassured by a futuristic military novel about the invasion of a reptilian species on earth. But there is a lot of history packed into Ringo's fanciful tales. The afterword of the book is something that grabbed my attention and I am not sure without understanding the preceeding story that I can relate it to you. Ringo is a lover of Kipling by virtue of his father's love of Kipling. I love Kipling by virtue of my grandfather's love of Kipling. If you have never read "IF" I suggest it. The afterword of Ringo's book is in memory of his father who fought as a combat engineer in WWII.

Basically the novel compares past heroes of the greatest generation to that of a not too far distant future's soldiers. In the end my generation is not found lacking but we have serious losses at first. I am going to quote the author because he makes some valid points regarding our current and possibly future situations.
"the societal conditions that provided the warriors for the American Army in WWII were unprecedented in history. It was a society that was more technologically advanced than any nation in the world, but had fallen upon hard times so that there was a great need for work. Also these hard times had hammered out some of the impurities in the metal (of our society) already. What was left was pretty good iron that was made into hardened steel by 1944. If a similar situation (a crisis similar to that faced in WWII) were to occur today, such would not be the case. Personally, I like the present day.
We have been living in, lest anyone be confused, a Golden Age. With it we are beginning to suffer the ills that accompany the end of a golden age (if you think there are any new ills under the sun, read your history, there aren't. But given the choice between a decadent golden age and a stoic time of privation and war ...give me the golden age. But, and there is always a but; if a situation were to occur today which called for a national will to survive it would be difficult to replicate that "Greatest Generation".

First we would have to go through the sort of pre-tempering phase that the Depression caused which would sort out the lesser, weaker impurities. Only then would we be a nation prepared for the greater test."

Ringo wrote this book ten years ago. Look at what has happened in the last ten years. I hate being morose or melodramatic and I don't like to attempt prophecy; but I think the foundations are laid for the tempering process. I think we are at the beginning of forging a new greatest generation. I think that we are soon to face the question of whether the experiment in self rule that is our nation will continue or whether, to borrow a phrase from Reagan, "we devolve into the ant heap of totalinarianism"

I think both sides of the contest would agree that we cannot keep going like this much longer; something has to give.

I have heard Glenn Beck say repeatedly that he has hope and until somewhat recently I was not sure what he meant. I think I do now, the times that lay ahead will likely seperate the wheat from the chaff. If that farmer terminology escapes you, the weak from the strong. In more direct terms it will seperate those willing to work and prosper; or fail, by the sweat of their own brow and the strength of their characters' without begging or demanding something from their fellow man; from the worthless multitudes of parasites with their hands out demanding their "fair share" while sitting on their asses.

This is going to be a painful process, but as I see it, a very very necessary one. Rome is burning and many are still fiddling and dancing. In the next few years we will again be forced to answer, as we did in 1776, 1812, 1862, and 1943 are we going to be free...or not?

That is how I am seeing it now. What do you think?

It is Perfectly Logical

 Obama Land There is an old saying that Neurotics build castles in the sky, Psychotics move into them, and Psychiatrists collect the rent.  I have often said that the main differences between conservatives and liberals is that Conservatives are logical and grounded in a universally accepted reality, and Liberals are rooted in emotion and live in their own reality.  Liberalism is a form of Psychosis, except in this case CommieSocialistProgressiveDemocrats live in castles in the sky and the American Taxpayer PAYS THE RENT.

Once you agree that to be a liberal means one is not grounded in reality in the first place then it all makes sense.

You can make up statistics such as “saved jobs.” You can believe that more people than what live in a district can vote in that district. You can believe that the “saved jobs” that you “saved” came from congressional districts that do not exist, which certainly makes it easier for there to be more votes; you already made up a district. You can believe there are 57 states.  You can believe that giving people a tax credit that they will have to pay taxes on is a tax “break.” You can believe that to get out of debt you just print more money.  You can believe that only a couple hundred protestors showed up on 9/12 at the capitol and that they were all crazy racists. You can believe that the rest of the world wants to love us and live in peace are the only hold up is the fact that we have been arrogant and derisive. You can believe that Jimmy Carter was a great president, and is still relevant.  You can believe that the only thing really wrong with the world is American Capitalistic Imperialism.  You can believe that there are no trees left in the world.  You can believe that cooler temperatures prove the existence of man made global warming.  You can believe that a first term Senator and community rabble rouser is more qualified to be president than a first term governor and former mayor and city councilwoman is qualified to be a Vice President.  You can believe that Americans overwhelmingly are calling for nationalized healthcare. You can believe that people who break federal laws to enter this country are NOT criminals.  You can believe that Greed and not Unionization and Government Over regulation are what is wrong with our industrial base.  You can believe that if we just outlaw oil we will learn to refine good intentions into an unlimited energy source. You can believe that although socialist policies have ALWAYS failed, that if we can just be smart enough, and well intentioned enough, and if the Government just has ENOUGH power it will create a utopia.   You can believe well…anything.

Once you understand that these people ARE NOT SANE it becomes easy to figure them out.Obama sistine-KOOK

by the way…I am getting better at this photo doctoring, don’t you think?
