‘Meaning’ Has No ‘Meaning’?

Commenting on Why We’re Losing The Culture Wars,
Mike in MI says:

Well, some will say, the Bible has nothing to say about anything except “religious matters” or “spiritual ‘thingeys'” (what ever that means).If God is not cognizant of what happens in our realm of existence or doesn’t approach such things, then the statement that “We have been given all things that PERTAIN UNTO LIFE AND GODLINESS” is asinine and void. “Meaning” has no “meaning” and words stand for nothing except what we want them to portray except as it suits us.If that is so, nothing means anything and the left is free to portray good as bad and bad as good, up as down and down as up. So, where do we learn THAT except in our FAMILIES and in our SCHOOLS?

If definitions mean nothing then communication is flouted and wrecked.
If you want to cause chaos the best way to do that is to disrupt the avenues whereby we communicate. Animals can not communicate precisely. Therefore they have few tightly knit and symbolically influenced cultural progressions.

The left is destroying English grammar, vocabulary and meaning. They are putting history into a mixmaster and pulling out their version to teach our offspring. If it continues, CHAOS in culture can be the only result.

Language, history and meaning in application…what are you going to permit? Dissolution of our culture or regeneration and stability?

God’s word and its principles are the only source of continuity and stability.

Learn and apply it …or take potpourri.

Your choice. You read it? You will be held accountable.


We May Be Sharing A Foxhole Soon Enough


Commenting on Senator’s Proposal Would Put Government In Charge Of Defining, Finding And Prosecuting ‘Hate Speech’,

You are someone that I would trust my life with in the foxhole. I too, am getting old. Was in the Army for a while back in 72 – 75. Disgusts me with the people currently in office. They don’t have a clue what the Men and Women did for our Country since the birth of our Country. They are taking up space in the Nation, wasting their life away making our life miserable.

Thank you!! However there are a few others here who don’t share your opinion I am reasonably sure you can figure out their political leanings.

I enlisted in 1960 separated in 1974 served three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam my last mission was to infiltrate HUE during the TET offensive in 1968 Hue in 1968 to gather intel on troop strength positions and armament. After which I was assigned to another government agency I didn’t like the duty and was not going any further up the chain of command so I resigned ( the best thing ([almost] I could have done)

No these CLOWNS have absolutely no idea what is going on they “think” they do but sadly haven’t a clue!!!

Socialism Liberalism and Progressivism are philosophies of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as domestic terrorist or a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence. — Attributed
to Charles Austin Beard (1874-1948)

To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

Who knows we could be sharing a foxhole soon enough if Americans don’t wake up!!

Government Just A Terrorist Organization

Commenting on Reid: Supporters Of Nevada Rancher Are ‘Domestic Terrorists’,
Libertarian58 says:
April 17, 2014
Has there ever been a more terrorist organization throughout history than GOVERNMENT? The way these criminals work is this: Suppose the government wants to steal your land, what they do is create laws that enable them to do that, since they are legislators and lawyers, they just make up what they want to “legalize” their actions. The Endangered Species Act is exactly this kind of law. By calling whatever creature they want “endangered” they can “legally” take control of your property, even though it’s theft. If the citizens “resist”, then they are called “lawbreakers”. Harry Reid is one of the most corrupt thieves in the country having gotten his start with shady land deals in Nevada. This tactic of creating “useful laws” runs rampant throughout government.


Democrats Are Sociopaths

Commenting on Are Democrats In A Political Party Or An Organized Crime Gang?,
Stuart Shepherd says:
April 2, 2014
what do you expect from the party that thinks it’s a good thing to be able to kill your own baby legally. You can be pretty sure that anyone or any group that is that profoundly depraved is not going to have too many qualms about racketeering! (or lying your way into office or lying while in office or betraying the american people or voter fraud or neglecting and breaking the constitution or….where do you want me to stop? the list is almost endless and completely nauseating and, in a way, terrifying. The description is that of sociopaths- that will lie, cheat, steal, or kill to have power and/or money and/or notoriety. People who will stop at nothing to achieve their narcissistic goals and for whom the end ALWAYS justifies the means and for whom the sociopathic means are also a source of pleasure because sociopaths LOVE sociopathy. It’s called evil. The gangsters LOVED being gangsters and killing people, etc. Democrats love all their sleaziness, as well, and have pulled nearly the entire country into it in one way or another, as is inevitable. Which founder said that our system of government (self rule) was only suitable for good people? Adams? Well, it’s not suitable for democrats- at least the modern ones.

Really, Michelle?!?

Commenting on White House Releases Propagandist Video Of Michelle Obama Doing Something Great In China,
Stuart Buncher says:
March 28, 2014
She went to China to educate them about education. That is funny. The Chinese students coming to this country have higher IQs than most of our school age children. Children in a ghetto school never can show how smart they are which is unfortunate as there are a lot of Thomas Sowell and Dr. Ben Carsons out there who will never bloom.

Debt Devalues Currency

Commenting on Do Currency Cultists Really believe The Dollar Is Invincible?,
Jim B says:
March 11, 2014
I’ve used this analogy before, it’s not original, I picked it up from somewhere but basically this is how it goes; In the early 60’s you could by a new Buick for around 2 thousand dollars, or 30 oz. of gold. Today you can also buy a new Buick for 30 oz. of gold, but the 2 thousand dollars used to buy the Buick in the 60’s wouldn’t pay for the tax and registration costs today. So what has devalued the fiat currency so drastically in as little as a half century? Does a government debt of 18 Trillion dollars, with 120 plus Trillion dollar obligations of future payments have something to do with it? In the last days (a decade or so) of Rome, the Emperor, Senate, and whomever else of influence attempted to literally cut their coin currency in half and through full faith and credit of the Roman government try to establish the belief that the currency was worth the same amount of monies as when it was a full size coin. It is time to realize that the full faith and credit of the U.S. government is simply a machine used to continually cut the currency in half by producing more fiat currency a.k.a. money printing i.e. the Printing Press! Essentially, in a half century we have multiplied the money supply 20 time or so to keep up with the debt of the government, who in turn adds more taxes, regulation costs and fees to collect more and more money to feed their out of control debt spending addictions. The most recent and largest of these government scams is Obamacare, huge regulations, huge tax penalties and fees for the government. The government debt is expected to grow nearly 5 trillion dollars in just five years from this latest U.S. swindle. Note, the 5 Trillion is a doubling of the CBO’s estimate of 2.5 Trillion. I have done this because we all know, and history proves, that the CBO is always off by half when it comes to debt estimating.

Livingston Speaks The Truth

Commenting on A Once Free Nation,
Stuart Shepherd says:
February 25, 2014
“The central purpose of Liberty Digest is to raise awareness of the people.” I think I might be Mr Livingstons’/Liberty digests’ biggest “fan.” In fact, I would label the effect this column has had on me in reading it for over 2 years now regularly is “ANTI- gradualism,” or a gradualism of its own in moving toward clear, unpropagandized and conditioned thinking. At first, when I read his columns, they seemed “extremist” and even paranoid or histrionic. Nevertheless, I was drawn to them, probably by the strength of truth primarily, but definitely also by Mr Livingston’s MASTERY of not only tying up the truth into cohesive “bundles,” but interweaving threads of the overall truth(s) he writes about into every column that states those truths from a different perspective or in the context of reporting current events. This has had the effect of GRADUALLY sewing the threads and then re-inforcing the threads into an extremely strong fabric in my psyche. At a minimum, it has set me “free” (“and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”) of any misconceptions. What seemed somewhat “histrionic” 2 and a half years ago I now know quite surely to be the extremely scary and true reality of our perilous condition in America. I don’t believe that there is going to be a George Washington to ride in, cross the Deleware, and save us from tyrrancy. Reagan was the closest we are going to get and the Reagan revolution is definitely over!

Time To Refresh The Tree Of Liberty


Commenting on Obamacare Is A Weapon Of Mass Destruction,
Vigilant says:
February 14, 2014

“Now the regime has announced that under penalty of perjury, business owners will be required to attest on their tax forms that they are not shedding employees in order to skirt the law.”

Alarm bells should be ringing throughout the hallowed halls of Congress, but I expect that a tornado wouldn’t even rouse the traitors in the House and Senate from their comas.

This tax provision is as anti-Constitution as hate crime laws. Activist judges will now pontificate on what an employer was THINKING when he laid off employees.

George Orwell from the grave is saying, “I told you so.”

Tea Party Supporters Are Patriots


Commenting on As Tea Party Becomes More Viable, Democrats And GOP Establishment Plan Attacks,
Force Recon says:
Jan. 22, 2014
Being a Tea Party supporter member, you must know that we are patriotic
Americans. We peacefully assemble. We petition our government. We exercise our right to free speech and we don’t understand why the socialist
liberal government tries to stop us. We aren’t here as serfs or vassals.
We’re not begging our lords for mercy. We are born free American citizens and
we’re telling our socialist liberal government that they’ve forgotten their
place. It’s not their responsibility to look out for our well being monitor our speech and run our lives. It’s not their right to assert their agenda. The post that they occupy exists to preserve American liberty. They’ve sworn to perform that duty and have failed !!!

Commenting on Conservative? You Must Be Racist, Extremist,
Conservative Voice says:
Jan. 24, 2014
We don’t like the President because he’s BLACK?

No Mr President, we don’t like you because you’re a Marxist Socialist, who has set this great nation down a path to that end, and there are a GROWING number of us that KNOW it is a fundamentally flawed goal, and destined to destroy our great nation…

Nice try though… I guess you use the “race” card where ever and when ever you are accused of screwing things up, because it HAS to be that we disapprove of you because you’re black… NOT because your actions are misguided? Right?

Give me a break !!

I think the race card is used WAY too often these days, and almost exclusively now for political benefit… or to diffuse a legitimate criticism… Like the boy who cried wolf… at some point, when used in this way, the race card becomes meaningless, and ignored.




An Irrational Fear

Commenting on How Did The Maryland Transportation Police Know An Unarmed Man From Florida Was a Concealed Carry Gun Owner Before They Pulled Him Over?,

Seems to me as if the wife should be taken to the range several times a week until she loses that irrational fear of an inanimate object.

Commenting on America Is Plunging Into Kafka’s Nightmare,

The central committee is succeeding in transforming a great Nation into a mere country,, where they pit people against each other with their rhetoric.
Instead of promoting and honoring ability and achievement, they look up to the guy with the nicest sneakers. It IS a ruse {thanks KennyLLC}, and a distraction for their agenda. What strikes me is that Nixon got impeached for trying to cover up Watergate, when some GOP operatives were spying on the DNC in Washington. But fast forward, and the dems, under obama, are spying on EVERYBODY, and that is just fine according to the media, which, if you remember, is the institution that brought to light the Watergate affair. Now they are complicit with the central regime to give them cover and make excuses for this illegal surveillance of the public.
