How to solve the problem of too much taxes, regulation and bureaucracy? Easy, just introduce more loopholes and pile on even more bureaucracy. This is typical #LiberalLogic. It is time the American people wake up.
What a tremendous legacy for President Obama and the usual suspects on the loony left. Medtronic, Walgreens, Pfizer and others are all moving their headquarters out of the United States by using mergers and acquisitions in order to save on corporate taxes. Now, this does not sit well with Senator Dick Durbin, the number two head honcho in the US senate and close ally to Obama. Senator Durbin has decided to introduce a bill that will grant about $1200.00 tax credit per employee to companies that keep their headquarters in the US. Un-freaking-believable!! I cannot believe the mindset of these Liberal Democrats. Just pile on more loopholes, red tape and bureaucracy. Never for a moment consider that the policies of the current people in power need to be checked. This is typical liberal logic. [see http://www.forbes.com/sites/brucejapsen/2014/06/25/senators-say-walgreen-domicile-move-like-giving-up-on-america/ ]
And then Senator Durbin has the gall to scold these companies, accusing them of “giving up on America” for a measly tax break.
No Senator Durbin IT IS YOU WHO HAS GIVEN UP ON AMERICA!! You and you liberal and progressive colleagues have given up on America many decades ago when you all have decided to try and remake America into something the Founding Fathers don’t even recognize anymore, a banana republic or a European-like socialist country.
You and your ilk have decided to not uphold the letter of the law and any decency left in America and have decided to trample on the very US Constitution. You liberals constantly try and try to pass laws that go against every ounce of decency. And if you can’t get your way legislatively then you go to the courts and cry and wail sometimes for years and years until you get your planted judges and supreme court justices to pass laws for you. This is what the Founding Fathers never intended the judicial branch to do. Thanks a lot, you lefties. If we ever get the general public to wake up and realize you liberals and progressives need to be voted out in the coming elections I will say to you good riddance. You, Dick Durbin and people like you must be utterly defeated in the arena of ideas if we are to ever have the hope of the American Dream again.
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when Al Gore declares there is a “scientific consensus” regarding Global warmi…I mean Climate Cha…sorry, make that Polar Vortex!
[I feel the need to add these parenthetical paragraphs because I am not sure if everyone understands the reference to “drinking the purple Kool-Aid.” From UrbanDictionary.com: “A reference to the 1978 cult mass-suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. Jim Jones, the leader of the group, convinced his followers to move to Jonestown. Late in the year he then ordered his flock to commit suicide by drinking grape-flavored Kool-Aid laced with potassium cyanide. In what is now commonly called “the Jonestown Massacre”, 913 of the 1100 Jonestown residents drank the Kool-Aid and died.
Bob: Yeah, he really drank the Kool-Aid on that one. Chris: I’m thinking about attending a PETA rally
Donna: Whatever you do, don’t drink the Kool-Aid!]…
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when Obama said his plan would guarantee that fewer people will be without health insurance and that health insurance costs for everyone will be lower when in reality the direct opposite on both points has occurred. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/study-insurance-costs-to-soar-under-obamacare/
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when Obama said on July 18, 2009, “…Under our proposals, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance. Period, end of story.”
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is accepted more and more as scientific fact, rather than theory when Darwin himself declared: “To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree…” see: http://willemdax.tumblr.com/post/59518695106/evolution-vs-god-by-thewayofthemaster-prepare
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when it comes to accepting that abortion is not really the murdering or killing of a human being. see: http://willemdax.tumblr.com/post/29573770079/180-movie-by-thewayofthemaster-what-changed
Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when it comes to the acceptance of same sex relationships and even same sex marriage. Have we really thought this through…? This is the slipperiest slope of all time “…with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is the next step. Consider the following…” https://willemdax.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/the-slipperiest-slope-of-all-time/
And finally, Why is it that most people are drinking the purple Kool-Aid when it comes to general acceptance that society is just becoming more and more complicated and that therefore we need to have ever-growing governments and more and more government laws and programs and higher and higher taxes so that government can take care of this so complex of a modern society that we live in…freedom be damned…
“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.” ― Thomas Jefferson
P.S. Why is it that most people enjoy story-telling from the likes of George Orwell (1984, Animal Farm) in the past and now today, Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games) yet no ones seems to be learning the lessons from these great stories.
Conservatives focus on good results. Liberals focus on good intentions. No one ever said “The road to hell is paved with good results.” Also PLEASE CLICK HERE: http://willemdax.tumblr.com/post/66879308202/liberals-focus-on-good-intentions-conservatives
When social policy experts create a new intervention to solve some social problem or make people’s lives better, there’s two possible outcomes they’re expecting: either the intervention works, or it doesn’t. But what we forget is that there’s a third option – that our well-meaning intervention actually makes people’s lives worse.
This isn’t just an idle fear. Shockingly, this seems to be true of the biggest randomised controlled trial of an intervention that has ever been conducted in the UK (and with legs in the US) – the Employment Retention and Advancement (ERA) project.

Just like in Part One, this post is basically sharing another couple of articles that I found on the web. I find it very disturbing that not very many people seem to be picking up on this slippery slope that we seem to find ourselves on, as a society. Or maybe more and more people are, but just keeping fairly silent about it.
Anyway this time. unlike in Part One I don’t really have anything to add other than the fact that my gag reflex is really working overtime again. And I am really hoping more and more people will wake up and realize we need to get off this slippery slope and return to more traditional values and even more traditional relationships. At least can we agree to stop trying to normalize behaviors that should not be accepted as normal or as just another “alternative.”
Here in Minnesota on November 6 we are faced with a couple ballot initiatives. Both of them should be answered with a resounding “Yes,” but the one that I wanted to talk about in this post is the vote to amend our state constitution to make it law that no court or no one can challenge or redefine marriage as anything else other than the union consisting of one man and one woman. As my argument in favor of this amendment I basically wanted to share this excellent and informative article by Michael Brown, “Here Comes Incest, Just as Predicted.” I probably shouldn’t need to add anything here but I can’t resist. You might be better off just reading Brown’s article and stop reading this post now. Don’t worry I will not be offended at all. Or choose one of my other posts for now.:-)
I found it very difficult to read Brown’s article (and write this post) especially because I couldn’t help my gag reflex from engaging every now and then, but that is neither here nor there. But be warned, that article and my post right here probably needs to be rated “R,” “PG-17” or at least “PG-13.”
If we allow our society or our American society to redefine marriage then we will be on the proverbial “Slipperiest Slope of All-time.” Not really sure if “slipperiest” is a word but you know what I mean. Brown, in his article does a really good job showing how (you really need to read it–click here) if we accept homosexuality as normal or just as a common alternative to a heterosexual lifestyle then we open up challenges to accept incestuous relationships as normal alternatives. I would go even further (unfortunately), that if we accept homosexuality, then other challenges will start appearing in courts and other public discourse throughout the world in addition to incest such as polygamy, adultery, bestiality, sado-masochism and even pedophilia. Good grief, could we slip on our slope any lower than pedophilia? Probably not, but then again, unfortunately, then we may come to all of the most ridiculous arguments to have alternative adoptive “couples” or strange groupings or strange “families” raising children. I don’t want to even go there (for another interesting, related article click here).
This is the one of the most important points that I differ with Libertarians. I am a Conservative with Libertarian leanings but true Libertarians don’t want any governing body defining any kind of marriage at all, not even “traditional” marriage. I really hate the phrase “traditional marriage”—marriage is marriage is marriage. One man and one woman period (in light of my earlier ramblings, a man and a woman hopefully not related in any way). I disagree with true Libertarians on this point.
In his book, “Power Divided is Power Checked” Jason Lewis gives a great argument for Federalism, that ideally power must be divided from national right down to the local level in order to be ideally checked, to make sure that power does not corrupt. I would also add that the individual, being the smallest and most local unit of “checked” power and the family would be the next in smallest and local governing power. In fact I think the healthiest society is healthy because it contains many numerous strong traditional families. Strong traditional families are best at producing strong, wise, and moral individuals and leaders. Therefore I differ from my Libertarian friends and feel that government should protect the traditional marriage and the traditional family. I know that not everyone will agree with me, being a Calvinist, Evangelical, Bible-believing person that I am, that traditional marriage and traditional family are the most ideal, especially in raising children. This is where I draw the line. And I am hoping that most people draw their lines very close to mine. Also, I know that this is a real stretch for many, but I truly feel that sexual intimacy, in turn, should only be within the traditional marriage. Call me a prude all you like, but sexual intimacy can be one of the most wonderful things in life that God has given us but it can also be the source of the most evil.
Let me explain. Earlier I called this slippery slope the “Slipperiest” because I feel strongly that this, the debasing, or corrupting of sexual intimacy into all the forms I listed above (don’t make me list them again) is truly the root of all evil. I know that in the Bible it says that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10) but, I pray that God will forgive me if I state this wrongly, but I would like to use that old cliché that actions speak louder than words and look at God’s actions in the Bible more than words in this case. I don’t see God sending supernaturally devastating hell fire and brimstone down from the sky completely destroying whole cities because of the love of money, although that may have been part of it. But the Bible clearly states that He did that because of the extremely bad, corrupt, egregious sexual acts that were going on in those cities (see Genesis 18 and 19). Ask yourselves where we got the term “sodomy.”
Anyway, come back home to our time. I hope that the “Yes” vote will win in Minnesota as it has in many other states. Hopefully, in the future we can even turn Massachusetts around to the right.
I did not mean this post to be as wordy as this but let me leave you with these words from Romans. I pray that God will not give us up to a debased mind or to our dishonorable passions.
“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”
(Romans 1:26-32 ESV)
