2 April 2016. Political Cartoonists Give Us Three Reasons Why American “Conservatism” is EVIL

The first cartoon illustrates “The rich are above the law”. The second illustrates “The rich deserve our worship and adoration”. The third illustrates “Freedom from government regulation… except for those who disagree with us or those whom we consider outcasts”. All of these are basic tenets of American “conservatism”. There’s a reason I oppose the sludge spouted by the late William F Buckley, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump… I know that I’m not alone. The Good Lord loves HAPPY WARRIORS. Oppose godless “conservatism” with all your might but don’t hate… God loves John Whiteford and Rod Dreher… He wants them to turn from their Mammon-crazed sin and live. Pray for your enemies… we’re Christians, that’s what we do. However, as we pray for them, we still oppose and fight them with all our might… that’s the way of things. Godlessness dressed in the vesture of “religion” is the most noxious and most corrosive of all evils… do reflect on that…

Keep the faith and #Feel the Bern…

26 March 2016. A Point to Ponder from a Righteous Catholic Bishop

______________________________

Whenever someone of culture and education uses the word “Liberal”, it encompasses what illy-educated Americans call “conservative” and “liberal”. Interestingly enough, “conservatives” are more Liberal than “liberals” are… whenever Russians denounce “liberalism”, they’re not denouncing American liberals… they’re denouncing American “conservatives” such as Patrick Buchanan and GWB! It’s clear from the context of this quote that Bishop Sheen has similar intent… after all, “conservatives” praise Edmund Burke, the most Whiggish of all Whigs (I kid you not).

Liberalism is evil… more evil than any Leftist ideology was or is. It’s a demonic construct that worships power and money… do bear that in mind as you hear “conservatives” speak… they’re the most consummate Liberals of the lot… you forget that at your peril.

23 January 2015. Russia’s Healthy Attitude to History

00 moscow red square parade 2015 020116

______________________________

Russia has a healthy attitude to its history… Rus, Old Russia, the Tsardom of Russia, the Empire, the USSR. It’s all ours or none of it’s ours. President Lukashenko was right… our history is our history, it’s what it is, we have no other. That’s healthier than the attitude of the Amerikantsy toddlers, who believe themselves “exceptional and indispensable” and who think that they can redraw history on whim (the worst offenders being “conservatives”, interestingly enough).

I ask a simple question… where was “exceptional and indispensable” America in 988? The answer to that shows the vacuity, inanity, toxicity, and unreality of American “conservatism” and the evil that it espouses and does. Do ponder that well…

Here’s Why Libertarians Are Mostly Men… No Comment Necessary Department

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Rush Limbaugh. Sic Semper Tyrannis!

______________________________

Jeet Heer investigates a provocative question today… why are most libertarians men? He offers several plausible explanations, but I think that he misses the real one, perhaps, because it’s unflattering to libertarians. Here’s the quick answer… hard-core libertarianism is a fantasy. It’s a fantasy where the strongest and most self-reliant folks end up at the top of the heap, and a fair number of men share the fantasy that they are these folks. They believe rules and regulations designed to help the weak have held them back, but in a libertarian culture, their talents would be obvious, so, they’d naturally rise to positions of power and influence. Of course, most of them are wrong, as a truly libertarian culture would squash nearly all of them like ants… mostly by the same people who squash them now. However, the fantasy lives on, regardless. Few women share this fantasy. I don’t know why; I don’t want to play amateur sociologist and guess. Perhaps, it’s something as simple as the plain observation that women were in almost-complete subjugation to men in a more-libertarian past. Why would that be an appealing fantasy to a woman? Anyway, this is obviously simplistic and unflattering, and it’s going to offend libertarians. Sorry. However, feel free to take some guesses about why women don’t take to libertarianism as strongly as men do.
