Our Evolutionary President

As I watched the State of the Union address I was struck by only one thing.  Well, actually, I was struck by a whole bunch of things, most of them bouncing back off the television after I threw them, but there was one theme that seemed to run through everything that was said.

I cannot believe how much the logic of the arguments for evolution has become a part of the mainstream thought process.  Stick with me here.  Evolutionary logic goes like this:

            “The rocks are four billion years old.”

            “How do you know their age?”

            “Well, there are dinosaur bones in the rocks and we know those bones are four billion years old—so the rocks have to be four billion years old.”

            “How do we know the age of the bones?”

            “The archeologists have told us how old they are.”

            Then we talk to the archeologists:

            “The bones of the dinosaurs are four billion years old.”

            “How do we know their age?”

            “Well, the bones are in the rocks and the rocks are four billion years old—so the bones have to be four billion years old.”

            “How do we know the age of the rocks?”

            “The geologists have told us how old they are.”

That is the circular logic that is used to prove at least part of the argument for evolution.  Remember, we have to believe in evolution if we are going to lay the proper foundation for the death of God, or His nonexistence.

By now you are wondering what this has to do with the State of the Union.  It is simple.  Obama used the same thought processes in his speech.

            “Everything I say is true.”

            “Do you have anything to back up your statements?”

            “I do not have to back them up, they are true.”

            “How do we know they are true?”

            “They are true because I said them and I tell the truth.”

            “How do we know these things are the truth?”

            “Because I said them, are you not listening?”

And thus, here we are with a scattering of information from a variety of topics that beg for us to ignore logic and simply believe.

The trouble is that evolutionary thinking is based on the fact that there is no God and if there is no God we are supposed to live by logic not faith.

Now we have an evolutionary thinker asking us to defy logic and live by faith.

That is twisted!

Socialism Equals Racism?

            I miss the good old days when socialists were white, mostly Europeans or even Russians.  Those days also included Orientals.  Man, those were the days.  Then we could be against socialism and not be accused of being racists.  Then we could talk about the evils of socialism without the argument deteriorating into accusations that we were just using cover language for racism.

             Maybe I slept through a couple of years of history, but when did everything become a racial issue?  And why is it that I can vote for Barack because he is black and not be considered a racist, but if I vote for someone running against him who is not black I am a racist?

             I miss the days when we were honest about our politics and not hiding behind the politically correct nonsense to stop those we disagree with.  Let me say it on the record, when I am against a policy of Barack Obama I could care less that he is a black man.  If he were white I would still disagree with policies with which I disagree.  I know it seems like a circular argument but that is what we are reduced to making.  I used to believe that Jimmy Carter was the worst President we ever had.  Take heart Jimma, your incompetence is being challenged.

             I know there are some who will consider me a racist because I do not blindly follow my leaders, and now my leader is a black man.  I guess because he is black I should change my approach to government and trust him.  After all, because he is black he cannot be a racist and therefore I should trust him to look out for me.

            Let me be perfectly clear, I am against socialism.  I do not care what color you are.  I do not care if you are Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Canadian, African, or German, I do not think socialism is a good idea.  If that qualifies me as a racist, then it seems we have redefined racism.

            Green is the new red.  Atheism is the new religion. Socialism is the new racism. 

            Somewhere, George Orwell is rolling over in his grave with one thought on his mind—when I wrote 1984 I was not aggressive enough.  I should have had more insight or more courage.  What a fool am I?

            Well, George, you might have foreseen it, but we have to live with it.  Pray for us!

Religious Tolerance Begins At Home

 

Religious tolerance is a good idea, but religious freedom requires participation from two groups.  Furthermore, I am all for showing respect to moderate Muslims and as soon as I find one I will show respect!  I just read Obama’s speech in Cairo, Egypt.  I have to confess that I cannot listen to him speak because his cadence is too contrived for me—even more than Bill Clinton’s. 

 The difference between Clinton and Obama is I was never convinced that Clinton believed what he was saying—I think Obama really believes what he is saying.  Of course, with Obama it is usually what he is not saying that is more important than what he is saying.  It is easy for him to believe what he says, because in spite of all the words there is seldom anything of substance in his statements. 

 This is not a consequence of his race, or even of his political beliefs—I believe it is what is at the core of the man—nothing that is not for Obama.  This is a man who has finally kept a campaign promise—he took his wife to New York for a date because he promised her when all this was over he would do it.  I, for one, am left to wonder why he did not do this in between the time he won the election and the time he took office.  That way it would not have cost us at least $24,000 dollars.

 I would like to take my wife on a date night like that—maybe I can be king next!  If not, then I have a piece of advice for the current ruler—park the damn plane.  It is to be used for company business.  Date nights are on your own!

 Continuing on his roll, Obama kept another campaign promise this week—as to negotiations with Iran he has announced that “we are willing to move forward without preconditions on the basis of mutual respect.”  Remember in the campaign when Obama promised to meet with all the world’s tin pan dictators without preconditions.  Oh, but then there was the debate when he said that was not what he said.  Well, at least now that he has anointed himself king we can know what he really meant.

 What he really meant was WITHOUT PRECONDITION.  After all, why should we squander all the “mutual respect” Americans have for Iran and the crazies at the helm.

 While in Cairo, our leader decided to promote the Islamic faith that has made America so great.  After all, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of the Koran.  Muslims built our tallest building, long before they brought them to the ground violently.

 I was happy to learn from Cairo that Islam is responsible for the Enlightenment and the Renaissance.  They probably started that when they were trying to overthrow the Christian Europe of the Middle Ages and establish more enlightened Muslim reigns like the one in Modern Saudi Arabia.

 This regime is so progressive and religiously tolerant that they will not allow churches to be built in their country.  They will not allow Bibles to be brought into their country.  They will not allow women of western culture to express their culture of not covering up their faces in submission to the man’s world.

 Before we begin to blames anyone let’s remember, it is the “colonial” aspirations of some nations that is the real root of the problem.  America, after all, is known for its taking over of other lands.  I am reminded of the words of an Obama advisor who told the Europeans at the UN in the build up to the Iraq war that America is not a colonial power.  The only land we have ever asked for is enough land to bury the dead who have fought for freedom in foreign lands.

 Of course, that type of colonialism is probably offensive to everybody.

 I have a message for Mr. Obama—it is not religious freedom when only one side grants it.  Western countries are not allowing their courts to sentence people to death and carry out the sentence merely because those people have a contrary religious belief.  That is only happening in Muslim countries, under Muslim law.

 It is nice to declare, in your meaningless dribble, that “throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

 I am sorry, “Say what?”  Religious tolerance and racial equality?  Wake up, oh dear king!  There is no religious tolerance to be found in Islam.  There is no racial, or sexual, equality.  There is oppression and intolerance.

It is not enough that we say they are tolerant, they have to be tolerant.  They have to quit beheading Christians for being Christians.  They have to speak out against such injustice.  They have to quit killing their daughters for sexual impurity while rewarding their sons for the sexual abuse.

Until then there is no religious freedom—not because the west will not grant it.  We continue to grant it to our own harm.

No, there is not religious freedom because Islam cannot grant it.  It seems that it might be against their theories of ruling the world with one religion and one religion only.

And I do not even have to get to their treatment of the Jews to verify the truth of my statements.  It is not enough to say something; history alone shows us what the truth is.  One man, with an unknown agenda, does not write history.  He might play a role, but so far the role is not in keeping with truth or reality.

And Now The Consequences…

 

I know, I know, Obama becoming president was an historic moment and one we should all be proud to have lived to see.  That is true; from slavery to the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement to President is a great move forward for the history of race relations.

Having said that we are now going to see why it is that Christians must vote their conscience instead of some enlightened feel good position.  If we are not going to live out our faith in the voting booth, then we should not kid ourselves about the value of our faith.  Faith is the evidence of things not seen.  Evidence is something you can see, feel, and touch.  Evidence is what puts criminals in jail.  Faith that does not influence the voting booth is not faith at all.

Electing extreme left leaning liberals, like Obama, might make you feel like an enlightened white person, or a loyal black person.  Unfortunately, as Christians we are not called to be enlightened in the things of this world.  We are called to be different from the causes of the day when those causes defy the moral code God established from the beginning of the Universe.

I am a one issue voter.  I know there are other issues that matter, but they will take care of themselves eventually.  From the beginning of recorded history God has been firm on one thing—He does not believe in murder, in any form.

Many liberals understand this principle in a limited fashion.  They do not believe in killing the guilty through capital punishment, the death penalty.  They do not believe in cruelty to animals which leads to the killing of animals—it is not murder to kill an animal regardless of how much we love Bugs Bunny.  They believe war is murder and are against that.

It seems liberals have the high road when it comes to believing in the sanctity of life.  If you believe that you are sadly mistaken.

It is on the issue of abortion that their strict moral structure dies. 

 That is how I define a liberal—they believe in murdering the innocent and protecting the guilty.  I am pro-life, I believe in protecting the innocent and the guilty.  No abortion, no death penalty!

In the next few weeks dear Mr. Obama will be appointing a nominee to fill Justice Souter’s seat on the Supreme Court.  Fortunately for you and me Mr. Justice Souter is a “conservative” turned liberal justice and his vote will not be changed by the new nominee.  Unfortunately for you and me the person appointed to his seat will likely be even more liberal and extremely young in Supreme Court Justice Years—they are the opposite of dog years.  Justices live longer than most people and seldom walk away from the job.

Suddenly all of the reasons why Christians vote for abortion are going to matter.  If we truly are a Christian nation then we need to figure out why we are tolerating legalized murder.  Same-sex marriage, sure it matters, but abortion is murder and we have become surprisingly accepting of abortion—even if only through the politicians we support.

I am voting my conscience!  Always have, always will.

Finally, An Ex-President Who Can Keep Silent!

 

            There is something to be said about maintaining a certain dignity for the office of the President of the United States.  After all, this is the people’s office and we need men who have respect for the tradition that comes with attaining the trust of the largest number of people.

 

            It has been a while since we have had an Ex-President who did not feel it was his job to offer his opinion on the holder of the office.  Bill Clinton, a man without a mission, could not keep quiet about the man before him or the man after him.  How sad to be at the highest office in the land and still be so small that you cannot show dignity.

 

            Jimmy Carter, without argument the worst President we have ever had, could not help but offer his advice for the occupants of the office.  Perhaps we should learn from the peanut farmer turned nuclear scientist that once you have so miserably failed at a task you should not think your opinions matters.

 

            Now, George W. Bush has taken a pass at the chance to speak about the situation Obama finds himself in.  In fact, Bush’s words were, “he deserves my silence.”  Jimmy and Bill could learn from this.  When you did nothing to deal with Iran, Jimmy, and you proved yourself incapable of dealing with terrorists, Bill, you really would serve yourself and your country well to practice the art of silence.

 

            George W. Bush kept us safe for seven years.  You might consider him a terrible President, I do not, but he did keep us safe. 

 

            And now, instead of blasting those after him he is taking the decent man’s route and refusing to talk publicly about what a terrible job the current occupant is doing.

 

            Oh, and for my friends out there who do not think we should criticize, please consider this my call for you to pray for the current occupant of the Oval Office, the Lord knows we need God to intervene and protect him and help him to act in our best interests which seem to be against his normal positions.  This will in turn will protect us.

The Preservative Value of Plastic: Cher Lives!

 

            I have to say that I love George W. Bush, I know that is not popular, but then what do I care?  I have thought that Bush’s Presidency was successful with some serious failures.

 

            Now, I have to rethink my opinion.  If I had known how close Bush came to killing Cher and yet failed I would never have felt good about his Presidency.  So close, but this in not hand grenades. 

 

            Cher lives, thus Bush failed.

 

            The real question is, and you will have to excuse me for cussing but this moment demands it, why in the hell is it that liberals cannot win graciously.  They have the Senate, the House, and the Presidency and still they want to whine about George W. Bush.

 

            Grow up and shut up.  Get in line right behind the proverbial Bruce Springsteen who only manages to sound stupid when he is talking.  Otherwise he seems like a nice, intelligent rock star.  Mr. Springsteen, do us all a favor and go behind that huge security gate on your properties and use that gate to our advantage—shut up and sing, then we can turn to another station, problem solved.

 

            Of course, part of the problem is that they are deliberately working hard to make matters worse than they are so that expectations will be low and thus success not expected.

 

            Even Forrest Gump could succeed in the world Obama wants us to believe he inherited from Bush.  These arguments might be nice if we would only forget that it is Congress that has spending power.  And then we have to remember who is in control of Congress—oh, yeah, the Democrats, the global warming creating and fighting, abortion-providing taxers of everything good and decent in our world.

 

            Oh, I know, let us live in the hope that was promised.  Let us live in a world where government spending on government programs will help the rest of us.

 

            What we need is a good five year plan, just like our father Joseph Stalin was so fond of.  Well, there probably is some hope for that.

 

            Cher, do not give up.  A couple of more surgeries and you might even be preborn—then you have nothing to fear from your crowd of heroes and baby killers.

Eminent Threat To Our Sovereignty

 

            I do not want to sound like an alarmist.  I know there are some who will say that the only reason I feel this way is because I am a sore loser.  It is important for us to now draw a distinction between people who are complaining because they see their world slipping away and those who are trying to warn about potential problems based on certain policy positions of politicians like the President of the United States.

 

            I have come to believe in recent years that the office of President of the United States is the most overrated job in most American’s minds.  Sure there are powers that go with the office: the power to declare war, the power of the bully pulpit, the power to sign executive orders that have the force of law for up to eight years, and the power to pardon anyone for any reason.  The most important power of the President is the power to appoint federal judges and the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

 

            First of all, federal judgeships must be a great job because it seems that everyone who gets appointed serves until they are in their mid to late eighties—we should all be so lucky.  Second, these men and women have the power to define who we are as a culture like never before.  In the past couple of decades federal judges have become drafters of law rather than mere interpreters of law.  This means that their power has expanded beyond anything most of us can imagine.  The Court certainly has power expanded beyond what the founders ever envisioned.

 

            For most legal issues this distinction does not come into play.  It is really only important in matters of conscience and religion—issues like same-sex marriage and abortion.

 

            We only have to look to California to see why this is important.  The protest around the country against Proposition 8 in California that acknowledges the traditional definition of marriage as the only legal form of marriage—one man, one woman—shows the new nature of American law.  When the people vote to overturn activist judges the elitist in our culture are not satisfied and immediately turn to the streets to see change.  This is how change often comes to Europe.

 

            The next step for proponents of same-sex marriage is to go back to the courts and have them declare the will of the people invalid for any of a number of reasons.  The main reason this happens is the courts are willing to write law.  The Supreme Court of California has already begun the process of reviewing Proposition 8 and its constitutionality under California law.

 

            In 1973 the Supreme Court of the United States decided to add language to the Constitution of the United States.  The issue was abortion and the Court decided that on the edges of the Constitution, not in the actual written language of the document, there was a right to privacy.  This right to privacy included the right for a woman to control her own body without concern for the nature of the baby growing inside her.  And thus we have legalized abortion on a national level.

 

            Now several state courts have tried to do the same thing with same-sex marriage.  They have looked at their state constitutions and declared that the language of those documents does not limit marriage to heterosexual couples.  This will change six thousand years of tradition.  It will change tradition regardless of the will of the majority of the people of the country or the rule of law that has served us so well for over one hundred years.

 

            Soon, if the make up of the Supreme Court changes with the appointment of more liberal justices, we will see these same types of decisions from the highest court in the country.  Liberal justices and judges have already turned to European Courts to help shape their decisions when it was necessary to get around American legal precedent.

 

            This is all because of the judges that serve in our judicial system.

 

            Here is the president’s greatest real power to bring change.  Here is the place where a president who does not march to the beat of mainstream America can bring lasting change to the country.

 

            Add to this the fact that Obama and other liberals think that the courts and cultures of Europe are more enlightened and more in step with modern, enlightened man.  They easily turn to the courts of Europe to change American law.

 

            This is an important point to understand; judges appointed by conservative presidents typically believe that the Constitution is a static document that must be interpreted by what is said in the document.  It does not grow, and therefore it should not be changed with the evolution of the times—particularly on the moral issues of the day, like abortion, same-sex marriage, and religious expression in public places.

 

            Liberal presidents appoint judges who believe that the Constitution is a living document that must be interpreted according to the mores of the modern culture.  Thus, the Constitution should be changed to match the enlightened views of morals of the day.  Thus, abortion is found in the right to privacy which can be assumed to be in the document even though the right to privacy is never mentioned in the United States Constitution.  Ultimately, marriage can be redefined because that is what enlightened people do.

 

            The European Courts are ahead of us on these matters.  That is why, just a few years ago, the Supreme Court turned to Europe to help do away with American sodomy laws when the law was clear and the precedent was clearly established under accepted American law and legal precedent.

 

            The argument goes like this:  Europeans are more advanced or enlightened on these moral issues and liberal judges, interested in writing law rather merely interpreting it, rightly look to European legal precedents in order to move America to a less Christian moral based country. 

 

            This approach to the law is nothing short of giving up our sovereignty—something we have fought to avoid since our inception.

 

            This is what we should expect to see under an Obama Presidency.  This is what will be the Obama Doctrine on judges and justices.  It will move us toward courts that write law and move the culture away from traditional Christian values respecting life and marriage and toward more liberal, less Christian based moral views on a variety of key issues.

 

            Activist courts will do something no one else has been able to do—they will override the expressed will of the people; they will force a new, modern morality on us.  A morality free from the dictates of Christian absolutes.

 

            The fight is coming; we voted with our pocketbooks, now we will pay with our moral core.
