If the Nazis and the Soviets had been dictatorships with non-white victims, nobody would have really given a crap here in the Anglosphere. It's only because their victims were white that anything negative is said about them at all. It's why you never hear of Imperial Japan and what it did, or Mao's evils, or Pol Pot and the most evil dictatorship in all of history, or Idi Amin Dada or Bokassa or any such non-whites who did horrifically evil and barbaric acts.

But because the Nazis and Soviets treated white men as white men were accustomed to treating non-whites, Anglosphere media cryeth "Oh, how totally dreadful and horrible!" "Pol Pot who?"

I was working and I sit by someone and we get to a discussion of physical science and a paper he was working on. That was....all right. Next thing you know, we get to discussing Evolution v. Creationism. He began by stating that he wanted to know where the transitional forms were and why there were no intermediates. I said that all equivalent creatures had been exterminated by humankind, namely Neandies, Erectus, and Hobbits. So....he then notes that God made Man with a Sin nature but animals without one. I mentioned Giordano Bruno being burned for that, but responded that we couldn't know if God came as a flea to die for fleas or not, because humans can't understand what it's like to be a flea. Then, he responds with the idea that a Christian could not accept evolution. So...I pointed out that God said that things did happen for a purpose, but that His revelation, the general revelation argued conclusively for the evidence of science.

He then said that God's general revelation did conflict with his particular revelation, but that wasn't an argument. I asked him what the difference was....and he didn't know. So....then we got into the question of how to reconcile the idea of billions of years of geology with a 6,000 year geological timespan. I pointed out that reality rather conclusively did not say what he said it said. So...then he said the thing that made me the most. He said something to the effect of if God made the world 4.6 billion years old, but I believe it's 6,000 years old, then God is wrong. And that he would reject the reality that is for the reality he wants.

.....



What the Hell made that whole thing seem like I was battering my head against a brick wall repeatedly? It was like he couldn't listen to my argument at all, even though I was willing to hear his!

Why is it that back in Aboriginal times the South was the most advanced part of the country, with the only thing able to be properly called a civilization.....and now we're the retrogrades who are pissed that we gambled on treason and lost? The Mississippians showed that a powerful civilization could be built in this region....and then the Confederacy emerges and fucks all that up. Jefferson Davis? I hope you and yours are enjoying being burned to a crisp for doing that to the South. And the Klan of the 70s that ensured a good chunk of the population would have its minds censored? Same to you.

OK....now I know that Marxists have some real problems with dictatorships, but a yahoo like this who can't see the elementary connection between the dictatorship of Gaius Julius Caesar and that of Gaius Octavius Thurinus is not to be trusted. On anything. Caesar was no reformer, he was a member of the Roman aristocracy, a power-mad general who became despot of Rome, and an overrated military leader whose major accomplishment was the genocide by means of selling 1 million people into slavery and killing 1/3 of Gaul. And this Marxist shithead thinks that Caesar was a reformer and he actually gave a fuck about the Roman Populus. OK....you no know history. You fail history. Ug displeased. Ug....SMASH!

I don't get it. I thought Liberal Fascism was the essence of stupidity. Then I see this shit? WTF?

Western Europe will send a grand total of 15 soldiers after the US and Canada have already done the rest, claim all the credit for it, and not acknowledge the US presence. The hypocritical assclowns that run that continent have earned no respect after 8 years of shafting Bush and now they give Obama nothing, despite the fact that Obama's gonna be a one-termer if he keeps on at the present rate of alienating everybody and his brother....fuck Europe up the ass without lube with an oak branch. Give us Ivan and the Chinese, and Afghanistan will be pacified in six months. Give us John Bull and the German Eagle, Afghanistan will be getting far worse and any round of fighting two provinces away from European soldiers will provoke squawks of fear. They didn't do jack shit for the South Slavs and we expect them to help us out?

Related to my two saw horses of religion: Christianity and Islam, with a couple of things on Hinduism as a bonus:

In the case of Islam 1) it is not in decline. It is currently the religion practiced by 1 billion people. 2) The Middle East would be just as bad-off under majority-Christian rule as under majority-Muslim. Perhaps worse, because then the Crusades would have been intra-Christian wars of heresy. 3) Islam is egalitarian, lacks a clergy class, and is extremely rational and free of superstition.

In the case of Christianity: Going by denomination: Orthodox: 1) They are not a poor man's Catholicism, they are a separate sect with much to salve the disaffection of the current West, and unlike the Neopagans actually have had the benefit of governing a few societies. 2) The Orthodox Church is very much a beacon of Traditional Thought, and missionizing places like Russia and Greece is disturbing on so many levels.

Catholic: 1) Having to rebuild civilization because the secular, economic, and political authorities disentegrated under their own rotten weight is a difficult thing to do. 2) Having to do this when pagan Magyars and Germans and Huns and Muslim Arabs are invading you every time you start to get on your feet is somewhat harder. 3) In a religion of Creed that is the state, theology is politics and politics is theology.

Protestants: 1) It's an ad hoc term that describes distinct sects with no real natural unity. 2) Have as long a history of persecution and intolerance as they've been around. 3) Protestant societies are less gay-tolerant than Catholic and Muslim societies. Don't look at me like that, it's true. 4) Just because a doctrine is wealthy does not make it correct.

Non-Abrahamic/Hinduism: 1) This is modern-day paganism. If it's Zeus you want to worship, Indra beckons you. If Aphrodite, Shakti. Paganism isn't dead, it developed its own unique monotheism and theology. 2) This has Fundies, too, folks, and its own version of fascism, to boot. And 3) Hindus are everywhere. They aren't just in India.

Thank you, and good night.

This computer virus is supposed to hit tomorrow. Assuming any of this, any of this at all is true, do what this says. It'd be the perfect idea to hit on April Fools and have the idiots shrug it off thinking it's just a prank. Call me paranoid if you will, but yikes....

Defenders of Sola Scriptura defend the Scriptures as unalterable. Yet Martin Luther attempts to tear the Epistle of St. James out of the Bible entirely, and the Deuterocanonicals were retained in the King James Version until the 19th Century. Does Sola Scriptura mean "I decide what's Sola and what's Not-So-Scriptura?"

Discuss.

As I said on a Christianity community, whoever had the bright idea to spread the Gospel to this particular Asian should be shot in both knees, strung up, and disemboweled before being strung up, and a sign hung around his neck that says "The Road To Hell Is Paved In Good Intentions."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Xiuquan

^The man in that link was witnessed to by a missionary inspired by a Presbyterian. He had been having visions of a figure that told him to slay "evil devils." Upon learning of the concept of God the Son, he considered himself God's Chinese Son. He received most of his Christian information from our Bio-Denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention (Liang Fa only spurred his interest). Having learned of the Christian religion, he proceeded to start a millenarian war that murdered 25 million Chinese. This is Mao Zedong under Christian ideals, and Mao even admitted as much.

That's right. Missionary talks to one dude, who promptly proceeds to spark a civil war at the same time as our own and kills 25 million people for Jesus. Much as I believe in spreading the Gospel, there are some for whom it is not intended. This guy was one of them. And the nightmarish part I could see is if he attempted to Maoize China a century earlier, he would have been acclaimed a hero of the Faith by the Christian powers of the era for having brought true religion in place of paganism.

Since Hitler and the Nazis and Tojo Hideki and Imperial Japan came along and succeeded him. he's been forgotten. And yes, this is the second Chinese person in a row. The next individual's going to come from somewhere different.

He managed to get the Indians to work together.

Unfortunately, he lost due to British wankery and his brother not understanding that he needed to wait a bit before attempting to jump Tippecanoe.

GOP county clerk passes around Obama 'black Hitler' claim
By Associated Press
Advertisement

NEW 10:20 a.m. FRANKLIN, Ind. -- A Republican county clerk distributed to two employees an Internet blog posting referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama as a “young, black Adolf Hitler.” | McCain volunteer claims attacker cut 'B' into face | Obama visits grandmother, perhaps for last time | Election page

Johnson County Clerk Jill Jackson said Friday that she had apologized to the employees. One had complained to police.

The employees, who had voted for Obama in the Democratic primary, discovered the printouts at their desks after returning from Labor Day weekend, sheriff’s Deputy Doug Cox said in a police report made public this week. A surveillance video showed Jackson placing an item on one worker’s desk, he said.

Jackson told The Associated Press that she was merely passing along an item that already was circulating in the office.

“There was no motive, no intent,” she said. “I never intended to offend anyone.”

The unsigned item does not mention Obama by name but refers to events in his life that make clear Obama is the target.

“The U.S. citizens are just not ready to give up their country to this young, black ‘Adolf Hitler’ with a smile, poor direction and absolutely no experience!” it said.

Doug Lechner, Republican Party county chairman, said the incident was unacceptable and taints Jackson’s ability to appear unbiased in administering this year’s election.

Indiana is a swing state in this presidential election, its 11 electoral votes seen as important to Obama and to his Republican rival, John McCain. Johnson County is heavily Republican.

God in Heaven and all the saints! STFU you stupid sonofabitch!

Are you seriously comparing a first-termer mulatto senator from Illinois (fuck PC, this needs to be addressed, big time) that can barely get a decent lead in a time when his party should be entire continents ahead of his opponent to an Austrian that had a fetish for mass murder? That turned entire groups of people into mountains of shoes, gold teeth, their skin into lampshades, that put thousands in graves they dug themselves by means of machine guns, that had as his ultimate aim the extermination of every person east of Germany and a good number in it? Are you seriously comparing a person with a black father and a white mother with a white supremacist Statist? If so, please notice that Hitler killed blacks in Germany. Note that Hitler would have taken Barack Obama and made a lampshade of his skin.

Obama is not Adolf Hitler, and the name of a murderer of 20 million should not be thrown around as a casual insult. That means you too, Madonna! John McCain isn't Adolf Hitler, either. No American leader right now could get away with half of Hitler's crimes. Yes, we did bad shit in Iraq. OK, fine. We did that.

Bad shit in Iraq =/= to killing 1 out of every 4 Soviets. STFU you damn assholes with the Hitler insults! Don't throw genocidal monsters' names around like they are insults!

RNC appears to shell out $150K for Palin fashion


The Republican National Committee appears to have spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin’s announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella declined to answer specific questions about the expenditures, including whether it was necessary to spend that much and whether it amounted to one early investment in Palin or if shopping for the vice presidential nominee was ongoing.

“The campaign does not comment on strategic decisions regarding how financial resources available to the campaign are spent," she said.

The business of primping and dressing on the campaign trail has become fraught with political risk in recent years as voters increasingly see an elite Washington out of touch with their values and lifestyles.

In 2000, Democrat Al Gore took heat for changing his clothing hues. And in 2006, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) was ribbed for two hair styling sessions that cost about $3,000.

Then, there was Democrat John Edwards’ $400 hair cuts in 2007 and Republican McCain’s $520 black leather Ferragamo shoes this year.

A review of similar records for the campaign of Democrat Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee turned up no similar spending.

But all the spending by other candidates pales in comparison to the GOP outlay for the Alaska governor whose expensive, designer outfits have been the topic of fashion pages and magazines.

What hasn’t been apparent is where the clothes came from – her closet back in Wasilla or from the campaign coffers in Washington.

The answer can be found inside the RNC’s September monthly financial disclosure report under “itemized coordinated expenditures.”

It’s a report that typically records expenses for direct mail, telephone calls and advertising. Those expenses do show up, but the report also has a new category of spending: “campaign accessories.”

September payments were also made to Barney’s New York ($789.72) and Bloomingdale’s New York ($5,102.71).

Macy’s in Minneapolis, another store fortunate enough to be situated in the Twin Cities that hosted last summer’s Republican National Convention, received three separate payments totaling $9,447.71.

The entries also show a few purchases at Pacifier, a top notch baby store, and Steiniauf & Stroller Inc., suggesting $295 was spent to accommodate the littlest Palin to join the campaign trail.

An additional $4,902.45 was spent at Atelier, a high-class shopping destination for men.

STALIN SMASH PUNY CAPITALISM!!!!!

In all seriousness, I just gave up any support I might once have had the slightest possibility of having for McCain-Palin (mostly out of a desire for a quick, simple death as opposed to a dragged-out, messy one). And anyone that defends the Republicans as in any way smacking of fiscal conservatism can STFU.

A proposal by State Representative John LaBruzzo (R-Metairie) to study the issue of sterilizing poor people as a way of combating poverty has caused an uproar. The broad outline of the plan calls for poor women to receive a $1,000 payment to have their Fallopian tubes tied and for poor men to receive $500 to have a vasectomy. LaBruzzo believes this plan would decrease the number of people receiving welfare benefits. He also noted that it will be completely voluntary. Nonetheless, just the idea of sterilization has motivated critics to cast LaBruzzo as a racist. The Metairie State Representative rejects any charge of racism noting that the plan will mostly impact white people who make up a majority of welfare recipients.

 

Today on the Ringside program (WGSO 990 AM 7-11 a.m.) Labruzzo highlighted his concerns about the increasing number of people receiving government benefits. LaBruzzo said that he was motivated to study this issue after seeing long lines of citizens waiting for food stamp benefits after the hurricane. The Metairie State Representative noted that many of the people in line for benefits were driving expensive cars.

 

There is little doubt that government spending is increasing and more people are becoming dependent on public assistance. LaBruzzo is concerned about the generational nature of welfare and the strain that it is causing on taxpayers. He believes that previous tactics have failed, which is why he wants to study sterilization.  

 

While offering economic incentives to sterilize poor people, on the other end of the economic ladder, LaBruzzo wants to give tax incentives to richer families to have more children.

 

LaBruzzo will continue to study this issue for the next few months before deciding whether to introduce legislation next spring. There is little doubt that if LaBruzzo introduces this legislation it will be the most controversial measure in the legislative session.

 
Dammit, get out of my state. We've had enough of this sort of crap! Weren't Sanger and Hitler enough?

 

GGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Off goes the head of the king, and tyranny gives way to freedom. The change seems abysmal. Then, bit by bit, the face of freedom hardens, and by and by it is the old face of tyranny. Then another cycle, and another. But under the play of all these opposites there is something fundamental and permanent — the basic delusion that men may be governed and yet be free.

and:

Human life is basically a comedy. Even its tragedies often seem comic to the spectator, and not infrequently they actually have comic touches to the victim. Happiness probably consists largely in the capacity to detect and relish them. A man who can laugh, if only at himself, is never really miserable.

The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom.
