The need to get our minds right

The need to get our minds right | Power Line: "This transformation is itself the “beginning” of something much larger and more dangerous than same-sex, monogamish “marriages.” Yes, polygamy is just around the corner. And Obergefell’s evident determination to, somehow, use the law to equalize the self-esteem (“dignity”) of adults and children in all sorts of irregular groupings is at least Orwellian.

But this is not the half of it. As it has been so far described, one might imagine that there is a dyad involved, one consisting of the “state” on one hand, and these diverse family-ish groupings — and that the rest of us just go about our business. Not so. The revolutionary mindset that the Court has perhaps half-witlessly embraced means to eliminate all felt “stigma,” any trace of social “humiliation,” just so that everyone’s “identity” is equally valued.

Doing all that requires a lot more than just a fair shakedown at the courthouse. It requires getting all of our minds right. And so we should expect today’s decision to inaugurate the greatest crisis of religious liberty in American history. I am certain that it will."

I Watched Insanity Applauded During A Eulogy

Editorial: I Watched Insanity Applauded During A Eulogy - Galganov.com: "WHAT I SAW IN THIS SOUTH CAROLINA CHURCH WAS TERRIFYING:
I saw the leader of the FREE WORLD, as a man who is so immersed in himself . . . who believes that he is so smart and talented, as to have the answers to everything.

I gave witness to a man who truly believes that he is so much above the people, that he alone knows what people need and don’t need . . . who fully understands how the world should be according to himself, rather than how the world really is according to everyone else.

I witnessed a man with such an indescribably profound capacity to LOVE himself, so much so, as to break into song at a solemn moment at the Eulogy of 9-Murder Victims, as a terrifying vision of the World’s Commander-In-Chief."

The Supreme Court and Federal Reserve are corrupt in the same way.

Random Thought:
The Supreme Court and Federal Reserve are corrupt in the same way. Both institutions defer excessively to legislative and regulatory agendas instead of sticking to their respective mandates.

ObamaCare Ruling Is Judicial Dereliction

George F. Will: ObamaCare Ruling Is Judicial Dereliction: Although conservatives are dismayed about the Supreme Court's complicity in rewriting the Affordable Care Act -- its ratification of the IRS' disregard of the statute's plain and purposeful language -- they have contributed to this outcome. Their decades of populist praise of judicial deference to the political branches has borne this sour fruit. The court says the ACA's stipulation that subsidies are to be distributed by the IRS through exchanges

Unsettled Climate Science

Had Enough Therapy?: Unsettled Climate Science: "When the leader of the Roman Catholic Church can use an encyclical to articulate the views of a crackpot German atheist who worships Mother Earth, something is seriously wrong. When Pope Francis can hop on the movement that wants to repeal the Industrial Revolution, without really considering the good that it has brought to human beings, it appears that ideology has captured the Argentinian mind of the head of the Catholic Church.

The Imperial President

The Imperial President: "You're in my house."
OK, I know I'm just a suburban Jewish mom and stuff and not very bright, but I thought that the White House belonged to the American people?

Arrogant, narcissist.  Basically a very disturbed human being masquerading as the President of the US.

All-Time World Champions of Institutional Racism

All-Time World Champions of Institutional Racism :: SteynOnline: "The Anglo-Celts who settled America and elsewhere are not great slavers. No slavery in Canada, or Australia, or New Hampshire. In the anglosphere, slaveholding was an enthusiasm of the southern states of the US, and the biggest institutional supporter of slavery - in the entire English-speaking world - was the Democratic Party. And, after slavery was abolished by Republicans, the Democrats created a century-long apparatus of enforced segregation and anti-miscegenation laws, again unique in the English-speaking world."

The New Civil War: With Malice Toward All; And Charity For None

The New Civil War: With Malice Toward All; And Charity For None | The Camp Of The Saints: "The Left In America has launched a pogrom against all America stands for with the intention of purging this nation and this people of it’s birthright by dividing it up with the intention of then conquering it.

The Spirit that animates those in Power And Control is the exact opposite of that which animated Mr. Lincoln:

With malice toward all; with charity for none; with firmness in the Left, as no God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to open up the nation’s wounds; to not care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting war among ourselves, and with all nations.

AGENDAS: The Indoctrination of Our College Students

Collapse, Part 4: Loss of Faith in Public Institutions

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: Collapse, Part 4: Loss of Faith in Public Institutions: "“Americans’ confidence in most major U.S. institutions remains below the historical average for each one,” a Gallup spokesman said in a news release. All in all, it’s a picture of a nation discouraged about its present and worried about its future, and highly doubtful that its institutions can pull America out of its trough.

Rand Paul's Flat And Fair Tax: Even Better Than Reagan Plan

Rand Paul's Flat And Fair Tax: Even Better Than Reagan Plan - Investors.com: "Perhaps the strongest case for the Fair and Flat tax is that it eliminates all of the special interest loopholes and carve-outs in the tax code.

Tax lobbyists in Washington would become an endangered species — and it couldn't happen to a nicer group of people. The richest 1% get the preponderance of the tax write-offs, so getting rid of the big deductions would increase their taxable income while lowering the rate.

The Culture of Smugness - the Liberal Elite

The Culture of Smugness | The American Spectator: "The resurfacing of racist ideologies is due not to the South’s past but to the nihilistic present, in which resentments and identity politics thrive. Eliminating the Confederate flag won’t arrest that unruly culture. It will make it even more rootless and ahistorical. Teens who shoot up churches and movie theaters haven’t been reading the biographies of Stonewall Jackson and Robert Lee. They have been immersed in an increasingly demented pop culture that celebrates the absence of virtue and discipline.

Only the liberal elite could be smug enough to think America is moving from a culture of “hate” to a culture of love under its dictates. Instead, it is moving toward a new culture of hate, one that is marked not by balanced moral judgments but by fanatical fiats. “We are on the right side of history,” its champions claim, but future generations will likely find such deluded moral boasting as far less honorable than the Civil War valor the Left seeks to erase."

EPA Head Gina McCarthy is Simply NOT NORMAL!

"The Lid": EPA Head Gina McCarthy is Simply NOT NORMAL!: "So in the end I admit, there are things about me that aren't normal, like my love for oreo cookie ice cream, or the fact that I am Jewish and never went to medical or law school.  But unlike Gina McCarthy the EPA administrator, I do not declare the end of discussion when the man made climate change hypothesis has so much scientific evidence weighing against it...I  would suggest that it is Ms. McCarthy who has issues with normalcy.
