NATIVITY SCENES

Well, it’s that time of year again. Some people want to celebrate Christmas and others want to prevent them from doing so. Nativity scenes put up by believers must disappear from view when one non-believer whines about seeing it. Some stores tell their employees to say Happy Holidays to customers and not Merry Christmas to keep from offending those who chose not to honor the Christian idol of divinity.

The season seems to amplify all that is wrong with political correctness. Trying to please everybody affects more misery on a greater number of people. Christians revere December 25. If you choose not to partake, fine. However, drawing people who do want to share the holiday into your world of skepticism, non-belief, anger and misery is not the right thing to do. Let them enjoy.

Likewise, common sense dictates:

If you choose not to eat a fast food diet, that is fine. Just don’t keep those who like that fat laden meal from doing what pleases them. Don’t belittle me for eating a fried potato or patty of beef. I won’t demean you for chewing on nothing but grass and weeds.

If you believe that climate change is man made and that this is the first century of all eternity that temperatures have fluctuated, fine. If science about the ice age and how the earth overcame that without Humvees and coal fired power plants interferes with your inherent beliefs, you own the ignorance of your choice. However, don’t make the rest of us drive underpowered electric vehicles that can’t tow a trailer full of brush to the dump. Please don’t burden farmers with excess tax for not equipping their livestock with flatulence suppressors.

If you are gay, welcome. Celebrate it. It is no more right or wrong than being heterosexual. The fact that synthetic pharmaceuticals that you or your parents or grandparents ingested over the generations altered the natural gene structure of your family line is not a personal fault. Pharmaceutical companies conveniently neglect to divulge that information. While homosexuality is not normal, neither are the chemicals we use to allay the symptoms of disease. As homosexuals, you qualify for equal rights and privileges just as any other human being, nothing more. There is a distinction between marriage and a legal bond between two like gender individuals. There should, however, be no differences in opportunities.

If you choose to send your offspring to public indoctrination centers, fine. You should also accept that some people want their children educated. Allow them to send their children to private or parochial schools by having their tax dollars sent to a school of their choice. The remittance amount of the vouchers should be equal to the total amount spent per pupil by local public institutions. Don’t hold it against private schools for not having fifteen levels of inept bureaucrats sucking up the dollars before they reach the classroom. Allow equal tax dollars and equal choice.

If you stole your way into this country because of our liberal to non-extent immigration enforcement, don’t ask for or expect all the rights and privileges of American citizens. You have broken our law, enforced or not, and are subject to justice in the form of deportation to your point of entry. You are not entitled to tax subsidies, living stipends, driver licenses, in state tuition or voting rights even though some of our elected idiots allow them.

Please use the remaining intellectual brain cells in your head, not just your emotion. Just because a thought, term or tradition is different from your familiarity or belief doesn’t necessarily make it wrong. That is why we debate. We live in a world of reasoned directives. We are not yet completely mind-numbed automatons of a single thought process. We must celebrate that which makes us happiest without harming, demeaning or belittling others for their ways.

Merry Christmas to you whether or not you choose to celebrate Christ. Please be comfortable with who you are, just don’t try to force others to be like you.

    If you stole your way into this country because of our liberal to non-extent immigration enforcement, JUST LIKE OUR FOREFATHERS DID, WHO DID NOT ASK THE INDIANS (OR GOD) WHETHER THEY WANTED US HERE OR NOT, don’t ask for or expect all the rights and privileges of American citizens. You have broken our law THAT OUR ELECTED IDIOTS DECIDED TO IMPOSE UPON THE LAND ONCE WE HAD GOTTEN OUR SHARE OF THE CAKE, BUT NOW THAT WE HAVE OUR SHARE, GOD FORBID THAT ANYONE ELSE SHOULD DO THE SAME. IF 500 000,000 CHINESE INVADED OUR SHORES TODAY, THEY WOULD HAVE A DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY AND BY THE PRECEDENT ESTABLISHED BY OUR FOREFATHERS, WE WOULD DEFINITELY GIVE THE LAND OVER TO THEIR CONTROL. (UNLESS OF COURSE WE WERE A BUNCH OF TOTAL HYPOCRITES), WE HAVE MADE IT ILLEGAL FOR ANYONE ELSE TO DO WHAT WE HAVE DONE OURSELVES BUT OF COURSE WE ARE NOT HYPOCRITES FOR DOING SO ARE WE?, You are not entitled to tax subsidies, living stipends, driver licenses, in state tuition or voting rights even though some of our elected idiots allow them. ANY NATION THAT CLAIMS TO BE A NATION UNDER GOD WHO FELL FOR DEMOCRACY, HAS DONE THE SAME AS THE ISRAELITES DID WHEN THEY REJECTED SAMUEL AND ELECTED SAUL. IT WAS THE FIRST EVER RECORDED DEMOCRACY ON EARTH AND IT RESULTED IN UTTER DISASTER (JUST AS GOD PREDICTED) FOR THAT WHICH IS HIGHLY ESTEEMED BY MEN IS ANATHAMA WITH GOD. THE FACT THAT SO CALLED CHRISTIANS ARE UNABLE TO SEE THAT DEMOCRACY IS THE ELECTING OF THE MOST ESTEEMED (WHO ARE ANATHAMA WITH GOD) IS SURPRISING BUT NOT ALTOGETHER WITHOUT PRESCEDENT AS KING DAVID CAME TO DISCOVER. YOU MAY REMEMBER THAT DAVID WAS NOT ELECTED, HE WAS ORDAINED AND ANY MAN TODAY WHO COMES TO POWER BY GOD’S ORDAINING, IS CALLED A DICTATOR AND DICTATOR IS A VERY VERY BAD WORD AS WE ALL KNOW FOR THE WISDOM OF THE WISE TELLS US SO. WE HAVE CALLED THIS FOLLY UPON YOURSELVES OF COURSE BUT HOW I THANK GOD THAT I WAS RAISED IN A MILITARY DICTATORSHIP WHERE RIGHTEOUSNESS REIGNED AND PEOPLE DID NOT SQUABBLE OVER WHETHER WE SAID HAPPY HOLIDAYS OR WHATEVER. AS IT IS, WE DID NOT BOAST OF BEING A CHRISTIAN NATION YET WE ALL WISHED EACH OTHER HAPPY CHRISTMAS. THE PROSPEROUS AND PEACEFUL MILITARY DICTATORSHIP I WAS RAISED IN WAS OVERTHROWN BY AMERICA AND THE UNITED NATIONS AND IS NOW A HELL HOLE OF CORRUPTION AND DECEIT JUST AS AMERICA HAS BECOME AND ANY MAN WHO THINKS DEMOnCRAZY WILL RESULT IN ANY OTHER OUTCOME DOES NOT KNOW THE MIND OF CHRIST. SURPRISING ISN’T IT THAT A CHRISTIAN NATION WOULD NOT KNOW THIS. AFTER IRAQ, UGANDA, TANGANICA, AFGHANISTAN, EGYPT, LIBIYA, MOZAMBIQUE ANGOLA, CAR, ZAIAIRE, ZAMBIA AND MANY OTHER CASUALTIES OF DEMOCRACY YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT SOMEONE WOULD HAVE FIGURED IT OUT BY NOW. DID YOU KNOW THAT UNTIL DEMOCRACY, LIBIYA HAD THE HIGHEST PER CAPITA STANDARD OF LIVING IN THE WHOLE OF AFRICA (INCLUDING OIL RICH NIGERIA). DID YOU KNOW ZIMBABWE WAS KNOWN AS THE BREAD BASKET OF AFRICA. DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL THE NATIONS ABOVE THAT ARE NOW IN UTTER CHAOS AND POVERTY WERE RULED BY DICTATORSHIP AND WERE AT PEACE IN PROSPERITY? YOU HAVE BEEN SOLD A BILL OF GOODS AND THE WISDOM OF THE WISE HAS TOLD YOU THAT DEMOCRACY IS GOOD AND AS THINGS DESCEND FURTHER AND FURTHER INTO THE CHAOS THAT I HAVE WITNESSED COMES UPON NATIONS BECAUSE OF DEMOCRACY, HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE SOME CHRISTIANS AMONG US WAKE UP. AS FOR HOMOSEXUALITY, I DARE NOT TALK PUBLICLY OF WHAT GOD HAS DEEMED SIN FOR THE NATURAL MAN DOES NOT RECEIVE THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT NEITHER CAN HE KNOW THEM FOR THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED. i DO NOT SPEAK OF FORNICATION OR ROBBERY OR ADULTERY OR HOMOSEXUALITY OR ANY OF THE THINGS THAT GOD HAS CALLED SINS NEITHER DO I DARE TO SAY THEY ARE NOT NORMAL FOR SIN IS NORMAL TO A MAN AND THOSE WHO KNOW THE WAY KNOW THAT TO TELL THEM OTHERWISE BEFORE THEY KNOW IS TO INVITE TRAMPLING UNDERFOOT BY THE CASTING OF PEARLS WHERE THEY ARE FORBIDEN FROM BEING CAST. IT IS INTERESTING THAT A CHRISTIAN NATION HAS SWALLOWED HOOK LINE AND SINKER THE EXPLANATION THAT SCIENTISTS HAVE GIVEN US OF THE HISTORY OF OUR PLANET, ESPECIALLY SCIENTISTS WHO CATEGORICALLY DISAGREE WITH WHAT GOD HAS SAID TOOK PLACE IN HUMAN PAST. IT IS INTERESTING THAT OUR ATMOSPHERIC MAKE UP HAS CHANGED BY 30% OVER THE PAST CENTURY EVEN THOUGH THE NATURAL CAUSES THAT AFFECT ITS COMPOSITION HAVE NOT ALTERED. PERSONALLY I CARE NOT A JOT FOR GLOBAL WARMING OR WHAT ITS CAUSES ARE BUT I SEE THEY WERE PREDICTED LONG AGO IN A BOOK THAT AMERICA CLAIMS IS HER OWN HOLY BOOK, A BOOK THAT SHE HAS REJECTED IN FAVOR OF THE WISDOM OF THE WISE.

      Thank you for reading The Morning Rant.

      First, let me say that I appreciate the passion Job Log brings to the discussion by writing in all caps. I do sense some unnecessary anger, though. The method of argument reminds me of the wild-eyed, red-faced, arm-waving liberal hosts of MSNBC, but I could be wrong. I also like the circular arguments that re-express my initial points.

      Job Log demeans science and scientists then refers to a 30% change in the atmospheric makeup over the past century, a figure apparently plucked from fantasy as I have attempted to find documented reference to this figure and can find none, either scientific or artistic.

      Job Log assumes the righteousness of illegal immigration today based on Biblical and historical stories. They in no way validate or invalidate Europeans, from the England to Spain and Portugal, occupying the continent against the wishes of native inhabitants. The assumption is that there were accepted yet unwritten decrees regarding such occupation. No individual or cohesive body existed to address this issue and to date no such tenets prevail. The reprehensible treatment of the native born by the “settlers” is in no way justified nor does it justify unwanted occupation by law-breaking foreigners today.

      We now have laws established according to the guidelines of a Constitution for a Democratic Republic. That constitution defines an organizational structure that did not exist prior.

      I can only accept from the writings that a “One World” Super Government, of undoubted supremacy and control is Job Log’s desire for the future. Yet, even then, a ruler or ruling class official must grant or deny migration from one region or continent to another for tracking and taxing purposes, just as now.

      A One World Utopian society with a dictatorial overseer and a few all powerful lords commanding compliance from the massive subservient population may be the option of some. It is, however, not my choice and I suggest much research and reasoned consideration before electing this alternative.
