Dreher is right – the sky isn’t falling; it fell, long ago. Nothing has shifted tectonically with this decision.

It was American Christians that led the charge to public funding of education. Millions of American Christians continue to send their children to public schools today. The state will educate your children – how did that work out?

It is American Christians who demand that their Christian private schools meet all standards of government curriculum.

American Christians support the military and wars; the killing of countless millions of non-combatants – people who never presented a threat – does not cause a flinch. On every holiday, they turn their house of worship into a house of warship.

American Christians support the brutality of the State of Israel.

American Christians support torture.

American Christians leave benevolent good works to the state.

American Christians support the drug wars, turning individuals who – at worst – have an unhealthy habit or addiction into hardened criminals.

American Christians look to salvation by the state:

Voting Republican and other failed culture war strategies are not going to save us now.

*** end quote ***

Not so good.

I often relate the story of co-worker and schools:

He was of modest means with three children. He couldn’t “afford” to send them to private or Catholic school. So he had to send them to Gooferment Skrules where they learned “stuff” that was at direct odds to his religious beliefs. So he was taxed: for a “service” he really couldn’t afford, for a “service” he really didn’t want, and a “service” that contravened his moral beliefs that he wanted pass on to his children.

That’s some “freedom of religion”.

The socialists have capture the country by educational propaganda.

And Christians led that change.

Stupidity!

Now it’s so deeply ingrained that no one can conceive of freedom.

Argh!

POLITICAL: The first memorial to go should be Old Abe’s

Tear Down That Monument!
A “Progressive” Case for Demolishing the Lincoln Memorial

By Thomas DiLorenzo
July 8, 2015

*** begin quote ***

The totalitarian socialists among us who try to disguise their true beliefs by calling themselves “progressives” are currently in the middle of one of their periodic fits of hyper-PC hysteria. Upon learning that the mentally deranged, drugged-up little monster who murdered all those people in a Charleston church had his picture taken with a Confederate flag, the “progressives” commenced a new crusade to obliterate not only the Confederate flag from American memory, but also the memory of anyone in history whose views on race are not identical to theirs. They have even called for the demolition of the Jefferson Memorial; and the July 4 Daily Caller included an article about a Portland, Oregon teacher at Woodrow Wilson High School in that city who has started a campaign to rename the school. The Daily Caller refers to Wilson as “a model progressive Democrat,” which he was, but he was also a racist and a white supremacist.

However racist Woodrow Wilson, the old Princeton University political science professor, might have been, his public utterances on race were nothing compared to those of the real darling and “model” of “progressives” everywhere (and of neocons everywhere as well) – Abraham Lincoln. The following is a sampling of Lincoln’s racist and white supremacist beliefs (“CW” stands for Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, followed by the volume and page numbers):

This article confirms my bias that Lincoln was the worst President.

http://wp.me/Pg9z-2ak 

On any basis, he was a “war criminal”.

He instructed his generals to make war on the civilians in the south.

No wonder there has been generations of hatred in the south.

In addition to all the other misrepresentations, the War of Northern Aggression was about taxation and tariffs.

Pure and simple.

But, I’m sure old Abe will never come off the FED’s five dollar bill. He made the FED possible with the income tax, debt, and warfare spending.

Argh!

In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the case for the Second Amendment self-evident.

A bonus post on “Independence Day”.

I wonder how many people can watch this about 8 minute video and not be swayed.

Stand up to the political elite and say “I do NOT consent”.

If not, now when? “Then you can sing about the land of the free

[TIP ‘o’ the HAT to: my Luddite old friend.]

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

“America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say “You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can’t just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the “land of the free”.” — President Andrew Shepherd played by Michael Douglas in “The American President” (1995)

RANT: I don’t consent to be governed

Changing of Our Guards

*** begin quote ***

The “long train of abuses” (as Jefferson described them 239 years ago this Saturday) is extensive. Far more so today than it was back then. And yet, we – most Americans – continue to play their part in the annual July Fourth kabuki theater. We pretend we’re “free” – and the government pretends it has the “consent of the governed.”

*** end quote ***

Peaceful civil disobedience?

The time has come to send the political class a message.

Non-cooperation.

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

POLITICAL: “The problems we face don’t have anything to do with the flag”

Civil Rights Icon’s Tough Message to Black Community on Confederate Flag: ‘If Black Lives Matter…’
Jun. 30, 2015 9:16pm Jason Howerton

*** begin quote ***

Civil rights icon and former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young is imploring the black community to focus on addressing actual racism and the problems negatively impacting blacks rather than the Confederate flag, which is a merely a “symbol that means a lot of things to a lot of people.”

“The problems we face don’t have anything to do with the flag,” Young said in an interview with WAGA-TV in Atlanta. “The fact is that 93 percent of the black people killed are killed by other black people. So if black lives matter, let us start believing that we matter.”

Young, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said the “challenge” facing the country is “not to wipe out our past history but to learn to live together in the future.”

Here’s a leader that understands what’s important.

POLITICAL: Reaction to SCOTUS on same sex “marriage”

Monday, June 29, 2015

http://survivalblog.com/letter-re-a-dark-day-for-america-by-hjl/

Dear Survival Blog,

Thank you for such a great service as Survival Blog. I am writing to comment on the above captioned article the Blog posted on June 27, 2015.

The problem we have is 501c3 tax exempt status, that is, a tax exempt certification issued by the IRS to the Church in exchange for surrendering certain freedoms. The freedoms surrendered are listed in IRS Publication 1828 on page five. This publication is freely available to anyone with an Internet connection. Everyone should read it and understand it for themselves. The publication title is “Rules for Churches.” Rule five on page five states that the Church cannot “violate fundamental public policy”. After yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, do I need to point out whether homosexual marriage is now a “fundamental public policy” of the United States? Do I need to spell out what the future holds for all “government registered” churches?

So why have very nearly ALL churches in America registered with the IRS (see IRS Pub 78) and surrendered their freedom to preach the Gospel? I can tell you why. It’s to get that last little bit of tax exemption, that last little bit of money, namely the ability of the attendees to deduct their church contributions. That’s it. We gave it ALL away for a little bit more money. The Church itself was never taxed, and can never be taxed so long as the First Amendment of the Constitution still stands.

Let me state it this way; if the Church at large was not registered and therefore beholden to the government, would we be having a vigorous debate in this nation about God’s laws regarding sexual deviancy and the utter corruption of the family through government mandates? I think we would because the Church would be FREE to do so, and in keeping with its duty under the Great Commission, it would do so vigorously. Instead, we have the Supreme Court and politicians for gods.

Okay. So how to fix it? UNREGISTER. Throw off the chains, stand up in freedom, and speak the truth to power. It would cost us though. Standing with the Maker of all things always does.

We need to face this. This is us. We did this, or at least allowed it. We need to get ourselves free again and then fight this evil from a position of strength, not beholden to any government except God’s.

That’s my piece. Thanks for providing your email address, and keep up the good work of the Survival Blog. – D.F.

This is an interesting reaction.

But will the “churches” give up the tax advantage? Will their “parishioners” put their money where their mouths are?

Or will everyone cave to “inertia” and the “cant’ fight city hall” mentality.

Personally, as a little l libertarian, I find Gooferment “licenses” for anything appalling. The fact that you have to seek permission from any group to exercise your fundamental rights is abhorrent.

So how will “We, The Sheeple” react?

What’s on the latest reality show? How is “my” sports collective doing? Is there a shortage of beer and pizza?

THey won’t see the problem sadly until they are being loaded on the trains!

Can’t wait to be in New Hampshire.

Police fine man holding sign warning drivers of speed trap
Jun 24th 2015 4:24PM

*** begin quote ***

Police gave a Seattle man a $138 ticket for holding up a sign warning drivers of a nearby speed trap. The issue for the police, though, was in the language of the sign –– not the message.

*** end quote ***

Sure!

Not just doing anything but “protecting and serving” the politicians’ bottom line.

Argh!
