Who is going to police the police?

What is society to do with these people?

In Nazi Germany there were raised Hitler Youth and Brownshirts. Violent people who enjoyed doing violence to others. We now have a population of them. We can tolerate them in the name of trying to be sensitive or we can begin to move against them. I have bad news, very very few of these can be redeemed back into culture. They have no future. Sure, they can find spiritual peace perhaps, but they must be cut from society like the cancer they are. We now have a problem that we must solve..and quickly. OR they will begin to become the gangsters of the future and be an even bigger problem. They can be arrested, many can go to jail.. but then what? What is society to do with these people?

If you have to ask the question, the answer is yes.


This is Great NEWS

This could be a game changer... batteries were always a bad way to power electric cars... but capacitive charge and discharge makes lost of sense.

Click to the article, the headline becomes “Health Law Rollout’s Stumbles Draw Parallels to Bush’s Hurricane Response.”

I can think of a whole bunch of non-parallels:

1. Bush’s political party didn’t design and enact Hurricane Katrina.

2. Bush didn’t have 5 years to craft his response to the hurricane.

3. Bush didn’t have the power to redesign the hurricane as he designed his response to it.

4. The Republican Bush believed he could not simply bully past the Democratic Mayor of New Orleans and the Democratic Governor of Louisiana and impose a federal solution, but the Democrat Obama and his party in Congress aggressively and voluntarily took over an area of policy that might have been left to the states.

5. The media were ready to slam Bush long and hard for everything — making big scandals out of things that, done by Obama, would have been forgotten a week later (what are the Valerie Plame-level screwups of Obama’s?) — but the media have bent over backwards for years to help make Obama look good and to bury or never even uncover all of his lies and misdeeds.

6. If Bush experienced a disaster like the rollout of Obamacare, the NYT wouldn’t use its front page to remind us of something Bill Clinton did that looked bad.

This is why we need Concealed Carry...

If we don't start to stop this kind of thing the lawlessness will only increase... and SHAME ON THE FAMILY.. it sends the wrong message.

Court records show that Adric White was out on bond for robbing The Original Oyster House at gunpoint a little more than a month before the Family Dollar robbery which got him shot...he is presently in police custody....THE SUSPECT'S FAMILY ARE ANGRY because HE GOT SHOT... they said the customer that shot White should have just left the store and minded his own business... rather than shooting White...

The customer (not identified but not charged with anything) ... saw White holding an employee with a gun to the man's head...the customer using his own gun drew it out and told White to hold it... when White turned toward the customer... he brought his gun with him and before White leveled the gun on the customer holding his gun...the customer shot him....

I wonder why White was out on the street after his gun robbery of the Original Oyster House a month before this happened?... Maybe this time he will be put away before he shoots someone....

From the "Great Old Saw" file: " A liberal is someone who doesn’t care what you do as long as it’s mandatory.

This is awesome!

The most damning thing about deception is, you don't know you are, until your not!! By Steve Chase

Three attitudes that can be telltale signs people are deceived. #1 Adamant - #2 Angry - #3 Arrogance

1. Adamant-People who are deceived are usually very adamant about their beliefs. They will have long passionate monologues about their beliefs, and when challenged will use long, often off topic answers, especially on Social Networks to protect their positions. They feel they have to correct everyone else and often lead every conversation to their particular point of view.

2. Anger-people become very angry when you try to show them where they are deceived. They are increasingly blinded by emotion and respond from that energy instead of thinking rationally.

3. Arrogance-People who are deceived tend toward condescending other peoples beliefs and doctrines often mocking them. They tend to dismiss others by saying they are un-initiated or old order, legalist, under the law or religious. This usually happens when their positions can't be defended, so they begin to assassinate the personhood or personality of others who are challenging their beliefs.

I'm sure that bad government policy has nothing to do with this.

 I mean, if you DO own a home in Chicago, you have no oppressive regulations, you are perfectly safe at all times, utilities are cheap and your taxes are VERY low. So what's the problem? How long before Chicago becomes Detroit? A year, two? It seems like voters in Chicago are proficient about voting against their own best interests. Can this be saved?

Just one name

Name just one famous person in history-good or bad-whose name has been adopted as a cuss word: Napoleon, Shakespeare, Hitler, Mother Teresa, or perhaps Gandhi? There's only One human being whose Name is used to express disgust. He is the One who said to love your enemies, to show kindness to those who despitefully use you, and to treat others as you would have them treat you. Why then is He despised? It's because He's also the One who maintained that God requires moral accountability. He warned, "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil" (John 7:7).

Bankruptcy, it's the Chicago way.

So it can be understood: Why Detroit can't work and Chicago won't. It's all about tax base. The money to operate a city can't be printed out of thin air. Someone has to pay it. If the money is extracted until it creates impasse from the taxable base the city collapses. Let's imagine for a moment that the city of Chicago experienced a huge fire, earthquake and tornado in one day leveling to the ground every single structure. Nothing left within the city limits. Not one thing standing. Coincident with that all the insurance companies in the nation went bankrupt and could not pay. The city no longer existed physically. The population is standing on the rubble saying now what? Now let's imagine that the Police, City Workers, Teachers and others on the heels of this are demanding pay increases, pension funding and job security. Then imagine that the city government announces that to rebuild will require everyone who stays to rebuild to pay double in taxes. What fool in his or her right mind would start a business, build a house or a building when a few miles away in any direction is another state, county or city without that tax problem they could rebuild in. That is about what we have right now. Taxing isn't working to find revenue. The Teachers got theirs, it's just over. Unless things are dialed back HARD.. the whole thing is doomed. People are already voting with their feet. At some point the whole of the operation will depend on that last homeowner, the tax on that last pack of cigarettes, on the owner of that last business. In order to keep it going the tax on that last home will have to be millions. I know this seems dire, but the reality is this can't work. There is no fix. Anyone who tells you differently is lying. And the same policies are now resident in Washington.

How to help .... really

I just saw a report about some well meaning people in Chicago trying to put together a shipment of shoes, blankets and other things to help the people in the Philippines after the typhoon. Bless their well intentioned hearts, but that doesn't work. What does work is to finance qualified people who know how to do it and supply them the resources they need to accomplish the task THERE. China, Japan and South Korea have what they need to buy (Blankets, shoes, water and food). Money will get it underway. So if you care, send money. I have opinions on which are the most effective at using money well.. starting with Catholic Charities (over Red Cross). They are already on site, well infrastructured and able.

WWJD? Would Jesus start a small group that looks like what we do?

This is interesting. The last paragraph is the most telling. I'm afraid that small groups, as much fun as they are.. don't work.

"Jesus would actually be doing what small groups say they want/should/need to be doing, but they can’t, because they’re too busy being a “small group” inside the confines of your small group’s ministry infrastructure.

It’s like a jogging class where the instructor, instead of taking his class jogging and commenting on technique while class members actually are jogging, stuffs everyone into a classroom and lectures to them three days a week and then gives them a final exam.

Disciples are created “out there.” Small groups, if not by their definition, definitely by their practice, all occur “in here.”

With few exceptions, modern-day small groups are great at producing:

• Christians who sit in circles and talk to one another inside a building

• people who read and comment on the Bible

• people who rant about how they long to “get out there” and do something that matters

• people who awkwardly end their time by praying for “prayer requests”

• people who go home unchallenged and unchanged."

Here's a strange.

 Liberals and other democrats rail against the Tea Party. Call it extremist. Claim it is filled with people who will destroy that nice compliant Republican party. IF there really were a two party system in this country and the democrats wanted to rule for a thousand years, then the should encourage, finance, support and stay silent about the Tea Party rather then demean it. That would certainly be the failure and disarm completely the Republicans. That would certainly be success forever for Democrats. RIGHT? RIGHT? No despite the rhetoric, the Democrats deep down know that if true movement conservatives emerge from this battle, they are doomed... Reagan would have been a Tea Partier. The establishment republicans (who can't win anything) HATED Reagan. I hope for the end to this party that doesn't know how to win.... and start winning with core principles that matter to people.
