Occupy stooges on parade
It’s fun watching Democrats getting hauled off to jail
by Ted Nugent
At least the Three Stooges were hilarious. The Occupy stooges are much different, though they certainly qualify for classic numskull stooges nonetheless. They are dirty, political punks. I seriously doubt the majority of them could identify five reasons why they are protesting. No one else in the country can.
You don’t need to search the Internet far to read story after story of the Occupy stooges committing crimes, fighting the cops, destroying personal property, stinking the place up and engaging in other noble expressions of First Amendment rights. I find that beautiful – priceless, actually. Only human cockroaches spotlight themselves.
The Occupy stooges are almost as funny and goofy as the Three Stooges.
What America is witnessing is the Democratic Party on parade. I say let the parade of simple stooges continue. Let them continue to demand something for nothing, try and close down streets, fight with the cops, live in filth, dance like Timothy Leary zombies. It’s beautiful. It’s so Democratic Party.
Let working hard, playing hard mom-and-pop America witness the Democratic Party in all its shameless, numskull and dirty glory. As the party clowns work tirelessly to falsely paint conservatives as heartless, cold, evil, sexist and racist, I say conservatives should do whatever we can to encourage the Occupy stooges to stay on course, painting themselves for what they are.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security relies on surveillance, vigilance, and intrusive airport screeners to keep Americans safe.
But in the state of Kentucky that’s not good enough, according to state Rep. Tom Riner, an ordained Baptist minister who supports a 2006 state law requiring all homeland security documents to recognize humanity’s dependence on God.
“The safety and security of the state cannot be achieved apart from recognizing our dependence upon God,” Riner told Fox News recently near his home in Louisville.
“We believe dependence on God is essential. … What the founding fathers stated and what every president has stated, is their reliance and recognition of Almighty God, that’s what we’re doing,” he said.
Edwin Kagin, an atheist who is now suing Kentucky over the law, disagrees.
“Oh, it requires much more than that,” he said.
Commonwealth law commands the state’s Department of Homeland Security to prominently display a plaque outside its offices that says: “The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”
Let me see if I can put this as simply as possible, so even an ignorant atheist can understand. Our founding and laws were based on the Judeo-Christian laws. Yes, the founders, even though some were not devout, were believers in the Almighty. They asked for the blessings of the Lord in this new adventure called the United States, and for many years, God did send us His blessings. Then, something happened. The “progressives” of the early 20th century decided that we didn’t need God for our safety and security, and things have been going down hill ever since. When God was removed from the public schools, discipline declined. When God is taken out of the public square, crime has increased. Why? Because people aren’t taught to have respect for their elders, and feel there is no consequence for their actions. Oh, there might be from the man made courts, but many aren’t aware there is a much BIGGER court they will be judged in, and the punishment for their actions won’t be just a few years behind bars. No, this punishment will last for eternity.
These anti faith people have been benefiting from the blessings we have been granted for many years, yet refuse to acknowledge those blessings, and will do all they can to destroy those blessings for others. Our safety and security depends on due diligence. Putting our faith in the Almighty is an additional, and much more effective tool. Political correctness has diminished our security. I will put my faith in the Father, because man has failed miserably.
It’s Time to Kiss the Tax Code Goodbye
Ready for a new year and another bout with the Internal Revenue Service, deductions, exemptions, pens and pencils, calculators, receipts, 1040s, W-2s, accountants, Quicken, TurboTax, and more? If you’re like most Americans, that laundry list of income tax jargon, paraphernalia, professionals and their fees is enough to set your head spinning — and even if it isn’t, the thought of paying Uncle Sam your annual dues will certainly do the trick.
America’s tax code needs reform, plain and simple. The current tax system discourages saving, investment, and entrepreneurship. It’s a drag on productivity, job growth, international competitiveness, and wages. It’s complicated beyond belief, and it needs to change. The good news is that there’s a solution that would spell the end of America’s convoluted tax code once and for all: The Heritage Foundation’s “New Flat Tax.” It’s as easy as one, two, three, and here’s what you need to know about it:
