FounderNews is News with a front-end and a back-end, with Cause, Effect and Solution added. Necessarily, this kind of REAL News has to be Subjective. Especially, in light of the fact that there is no such thing as objectivity in any case. The word "Objective" is just a Liberal Cover for pushing their own agenda. Enjoy, and Support...
Women are victims by their very nature. Biology for many reasons has equipped them well to play this role. Now, that doesn't mean women can't do any job a man can do, or that women on balance are any weaker than men, but it does mean that they are substantially different from men as a gender.
But, such is human variability that men differ from men and women differ from women as much or more than they differ from men. In other words, there are lots of exceptions to every rule, but that certainly doesn't mean there is no place for rules and generalizations. It just means that we need to be cognizant of the likelihood of there being a lot of exceptions to any rule or generalization.
All this being said, it is pertinent to use this understanding to explain some things. One of them is in the matter of reproduction, and the role that gender plays in it. Bottom line is, women take the blame for lots of things that are not their fault. It is their nature to cover up for their men folk. While women take the blame for our low birth rate, a more careful study indicates that fundamentally it is men who don't want children not women.
It is just that women respond to what they think their men think, and act accordingly. If women think, (and for good reason,) that most modern men want few or none children, they will speak and act out to enable the viewpoint that their men, (and men generally in their society,) have.
They will get the abortions, they will get the contraceptive devices and use them and they will allow themselves to be sterilized, and take the blame for all this while leaving their men free to wash their hands of the whole matter. Long suffering women will docilely take the blame as is their feminine nature and God and nation will not have the children needed to preserve either God or Country.
How women do this in all its detailed intricacies is a study in itself.
Today, men manipulate women mainly by ambivalence on matters of children, and by creating the manipulations of the larger society which they control. They will send signals to their wives in dozens of ways indicating what they want. Things like, "Well yes honey, I do love children, but we must plan..." or, "You know we have this mortgage to pay off, and I don't know how we will make it without your income...."
It is in these subtle ways that women are told from birth that them having children is a conditional matter out of their hands. Why should any women risk her life and go through the labor of pregnancy and childbirth to produce a child that neither her worthless husband nor her devil possessed society wants?
The manipulated woman just gives up and kills the her child with some form, method or procedure of birth control in order to satisfy the blood lust of both the ungodly man she married and the ungodly society he is a part of that he, and other men like him, has created.
We live in a binary Universe on so many levels. One of the many instructive binaries is the two very different worlds of Making, and Keeping money. There are those who make it, and there are those who keep it, and these two types are most often in clear conflict with each other.
For example, a partnership that works well, is often one between a “Maker” and a “Keeper” of Money. The former is typically the sales person, and the latter become the operations person that includes watching the finances with one eye to squirreling it away. These opposites work well together, but if you get two of the same type as partners the business is very likely to fail in one way or another, sooner or later.
In general, too much of either of these types in an organization is poison, just the way too little of each of these ruins things. In nature as we developed over time, there was always a balance of nature between the hunter gatherer, and the farmer going back into pre-history. The hunter-gatherer lived from hand to mouth depending on what he could kill on a given day, while the farmer type would, by nature, be in the storage (savings) mode.
Women, historically, have taken on the role of “Keeper” by preserving the results of the man’s hunting and gathering, and storing it away to feed the family during the winter.
It is important for every person to understand which type they are, and to overcome the egotistic tendency in everyone to think of themselves as having both of these necessary skills. It would be great if a single person could exemplify both of these talents, but the odds are that it is simply not going to be the case. One or the other characteristic is sure to dominate in every person.
Ideally, of course, all Makers should be Keepers, and all Keepers should be Makers. And if that were so we would have a good start on creating that perfect world we all dream of.
This binary situation is just one of the reasons for God's very strong instruction to us to “love thy brother” for he, or she, as the case may be, is going to be the complementary half that we are not, and cannot be.
NOTE: Concerning whether you are a Maker (Spender) or a Keeper (Saver), one way to find out which you are is to test yourself in this manner: Have you been able to keep savings (or investments) over a very long period of time without spending them no matter how dire the so-called "emergencies" you have faced?
If you have keep substantial money-investments over a whole lifetime without ever spending them, then you are likely a Keeper-Saver. If you have not been able to do this, then you are likely a Maker-Spender. All the rationalizations in the world can't change the type you are, or have been demonstrated to have been. People can, and do, change but it is not easy, especially in this case.
Life of any value must be based on restricting freedom and restricting money, for mankind is perpetually addicted to the abuse of both of these.
Resist the temptation to love money, and love freedom. You are to respect, and have, both, but to love neither. Limited freedom and limited money is the ticket to the good life.
Money not limited quickly becomes corrosive, which leads invariably to poverty, and Freedom not limited quickly becomes anarchy, which leads invariably to dictatorship. Thus America is quickly becoming a poverty stricken dictatorship.
Freedom not limited quickly becomes anarchy, which leads invariably to dictatorship, and Money, not limited, quickly becomes corrosive, which leads invariably to poverty. Thus America is quickly becoming a poverty stricken dictatorship.
America is the richest and most free nation on earth and those two twin idols are its undoing. It is fine to have money and freedom as long as those two do not have you. An excess of Prosperity and Freedom becomes the enemy of each, and each other. What is wrong with America is too much Money and too much Freedom. You should have both, but act and live as though you have neither.
Evil is the Worshiping, Idolizing, and Loving both Money, and Freedom. It was the abused Freedom to sin that caused Adam and Eve to eat the Apple, and abused Money was why they did it. It was their lust for the first junk food that brought them down. And the Apple they lusted after offered them more Freedom to do even more wrong. So it is a vicious circle of wrong doing, fed by the infernal seeking after more, and yet more, of course, Money and Freedom. And what nation on earth is the greatest luster after Money, and Freedom? Why it is surely America.
Freedom and Money are the root of all evil, when increased to excess.
The problem with humanity is an excess and abuse of money and freedom. These two things answereth to all things in moderation, but are the curse of the human race when loved and idolized. These two are the double-edged sword that we have placed against our own necks. Money, and Freedom, Freedom and Money, these two are the double whammy that has brought down every person, every family, and every nation and culture since the world began. And, of course, the Bible speaks against, and warns against, these two, from cover to cover.
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any Graven Image, or any likeness that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I am the LORD thy God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
III. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in Vain: for the LORD will not hold guiltless he that taketh His name in vain.
IV. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy, to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: that thy male servant and thy female servant may rest as well as thou. And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God brought thee out from there with a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm: Therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the Sabbath day. For six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
V. Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged; and that it may be well with thee, and that thy days may be long in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
VI. Thou shalt not Murder.
VII. Thou shalt not commit Adultery.
VIII. Thou shalt not Steal.
IX. Thou shalt not bear False Witness against thy neighbor.
X. Thou shalt not Covet thy neighbor's wife, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his field, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
Now these, the Commandments, the Statutes, and the Judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: And that thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And thou shalt teach these commandments diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve Him, and shalt swear by His name. Ye shall not go after other gods. Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, and thou shalt do right. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these Commandments before the Lord our God, as He hath commanded us. Deuteronomy Chapter 6
NOTES ON THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
Numbering: Catholics, Jews and Lutherans combine the 1st and 2nd Commandments into one. Jews make up for this by listing a preamble detailing being saved out of Egypt as the 1st Commandment, while the Catholics and Lutherans add a Commandment at the end by dividing the 10th into two parts, one forbidding covetousness toward your neighbor's wife, and the other forbidding covetousness towards his goods.
Lists: Lutherans, Catholics, Jews and others may have other differences with the Protestant KJV version reproduced here by a compilation and justification of the two lists found respectively in Exodus and Deuteronomy.There are not many differences between these two lists, and they tend to be minor. It is mostly a matter of taste and choice as to how they are reconciled into one.
Commandment Order: It should be noted that the Ten Commandments are listed in the Bible in order of importance to represent a well ordered hierarchy of values, with the most important Commandment first, and the least important last.
Misinterpretation: Many of the Commandments are widely and commonly misunderstood. The most common error is in regard to the meaning of the word Kill (5th Commandment). It doesn't mean simply kill but, more accurately, it means Murder, properly defined as unlawful killing. Lawful killing is not intended to be prohibited as the Bible lists many crimes that are to be punished by death, not to speak of killing in war and self-defense.
Taking of the Lord's name in vain (3rd Commandment) should be understood to mean disobedience, criticizing, rebellion, blaming, or even second-guessing God, not the simple utterance of the name of God in anger toward some thing or some person, even when used as a profanity. This is not to condone the careless use of the Lord's name, but to restrict it to casual cursing, trivializes the importance of the 3rd Commandment.
Making Graven Images (2nd Commandment) should be understood as worshiping things of any sort, and the works of men in particular, as well as paying to much heed to material things, as opposed to the things of God.
Observing the Sabbath (4th Commandment) was then, as it is now, large matter of dispute both as to the proper day and the proper conduct suitable to that day.
Honoring parents (5th Commandment) should be understood as honoring them only in those ways, and for those things that qualify them as Godly parents.
Italicized Words have been omitted on occasion, first because none of them appears in original manuscripts, but were added under sometimes questionable circumstances by the translators to try to help less well-educated people better understand. They often serve a doubtful purpose even in that capacity, and some have been left out here.
Problems with combining the 1st and 2nd Commandments are that it lessens the prohibition against idolatry, graven images and materialism, and diminishes the importance of the one God concept. Plus it requires the dividing of the last and least important Commandment, the 10th into two Commandments.
Problems with dividing the 10th Commandment, that forbids covetousness, into two parts. It raises the importance of a prohibition on coveting beyond what is intended in the original manuscripts despite it being the least important commandment.
Combining the first two Commandments and dividing the last Commandment, seems disproportionate and unreasonable.
Fourth Commandment changes regarding the Sabbath are also problematical.
These Ten Commandments are the foundation stone of Judeo-Christian religion, culture, and our respective nations. No other documents are as important to our way of life. It is therefore necessary that we understand them as fully as we can.
As an aid to understanding and memory the following quick list is provided:
(1) One God (2) No Graven Images (3) No Cursing God (4) Sabbath Keeping (5) Honor Mother & Father (6) No Killing (Murder} (7) No Adultery (8) No Stealing (9) No False Witnessing (10) No Coveting
American Jesus "How the Son of God Became a National Icon" is the title of a new book about Jesus, the greatest person who ever lived.
It is true, America and Jesus can be said to be joined at the hip, so to speak, and it is true, one might go on to say, because both want it that way. But America is not the only country that has claimed this special divine status the deity over the course of human history, yet it is the most promenent one to do so, certainly in modern times. And we might add that all in all it is a good thing.
Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of the Christ rivaled the most successful Hollywood blockbusters, raking in nearly $370 million in domestic, gross box-office revenue. This film portrays the last twelve hours in the life of Jesus, and is only the latest effort to bring Jesus into the center of American's life.
More than 80 percent of Americans call themselves Christians, and 75 percent say that Jesus is God or the Son of God, and that he was resurrected from the dead. It is reasonable to ask, how did Americans come to adopt Jesus as their own? And what difference does it make? What explains the resilience of Jesus as a central subject of history, religious devotion, culture, and even infatuation and imagination.
One Caveat (warning) is that this book is a product of Academia, and is written by a confirmed academic. So, take his research for what it is worth, (trust but verify) but keep your own counsel. The Author Stephen Prothero is an Episcopal theologian- professor, (need we say more) and the book drips with cynicism, if not outright disbelief.
Yet, indirectly it makes a great case on behalf of both America and Jesus, but directly it hews pretty much to the beliefs of its author and his church, which not coincidentally correspond to those of most of the educated elites of America and the world, whatever that might mean.
All in all it is a useful book for Conservative Believer public policy advocates.
The Long Term Unemployed have, as usual, and by design, become a Leftwing political football: The forked tongue of these Lefties is nowhere more evident than in the current debate in Congress over extending Unemployment Benefits for the, so-called, long term unemployed.
These bleeding heart Liberals cry gallons of crocodile tears about how much they "love" the unemployed and how tenderly they "feel their pain," BUT please folks take your eyes off of their blubbering long enough to pay attention to what do they actually DO? Fact is, they do the exact opposite of what would help these people.
Conservatives have said repeatedly, (even though mistakenly from a National Welfare point of view) that they will vote for extending these benefits, BUT they refuse to allow the Libs to cynically "use" the Unemployed to advance their wasteful anti-American spending, and economically and socially destructive, agenda.
The Right refuses to vote for a Far Left bill that would package extending the benefits with a bunch of other expensive and damaging porkulous boondoggles. Proof of Liberal ill-will is these same Obama supporters refuse to cut any wasteful government spending programs in order to pay for extending these benefits.
The Left have cleverly tucked these poison pills into the spendaholic bill they have proposed. Then they have the nerve to complain that Conservatives will not vote for their swollen pork laden bill that would harm the nation, and the economy.
They are, in effect, holding the Unemployed, (folks they say they love) hostage to get voted in other unrelated slush-fund Far Left agenda items. They refuse to cut any spending to pay for these extensions, and refuse to remove from the bill wasteful spending measures that Conservatives oppose.
Draw your own conclusions as to who hates the Unemployed, and who indeed cares for them.
Fact is, the slower the economy, the more everyone needs to tighten their belts, pull up their socks and get going. Nothing is accomplished by putting the Unemployed on Easy Street. There is proof shown over and over that people will tend not to go back to work UNTIL their taxpayer provided Unemployment Benefits run out and come close to running out. It is just human nature.
There is overwhelming Media bias, because there is no such thing as Media impartiality, fairness, objectivity, or any of that sort of Liberal clap-trap. All news is subjective, as is all of everything else.
But, the best approach is to recognize this and act accordingly, rather than play the role of the hypocrite liar and pretend you are doing something that you are not doing, and cannot do in any case.
Thus, the best cure for Media bias is competition in the purveying of the news and other sorts of information. Don't strive for a phony objectivity that cannot be delivered in any case. Far better is to just arrange, or allow, to the extent possible, every viewpoint to have its say, and then let the chips fall where they may.
This spurious idea of news objectivity has been hatched and fostered by "Schools of Journalism" trying to turn an art form, at best, into a pseudo "science." Even science is entirely subjective, while all the time protesting from the tops of its ivory towers that it is not.
Every single person on earth has a world view that is totally unique to that person, and what one sees one way every other person sees another way. Yes Media Bias is bad, but the way to prevent it is NOT make more of it, pretending to be unbiased.
The "supreme" Court should not be telling the Constitution what the Constitution means, but rather the Constitution should be telling the "supreme" Court what the Constitution means.
NOTE: The Constitution wisely never refers to the "Supreme" Court, but rather to the "supreme" Court, making it very clear it knew the difference. "Supreme has the meaning of divine power, whereas "supreme" properly just means the highest Court.
The diabolically drifting tendency of the "supreme" Court since our founding is to de-construct the Constitution through reductive "divine" rulings that chip away at the clear meaning of the words of the Constitution, thus putting itself in the "divine" position that only the Constitution should occupy.
By the very nature of "interpreting" it is almost impossible for any Court "interpretive" decision to do anything but reduce the authority of the Constitution. Surely, it cannot increase that authority by anything it "decides." The minute you "interpret" something that the Constitution says, you diminish, and trivialize it to some degree. The people individually are the only real definer of what the Constitution means.
Every interpretive and defining decision of the supreme Court, or any lower Court for that matter, has a tendency to shoot a hole through the body of the Constitution. The Courts, in general, should be limited by Congress to deciding case law, that is the law of each case brought before it, and forget about setting precedents, and trying to interpret and define what the Constitution says or means, putting itself in place of the Constitution, in effect trying to replace the Constitution with its "divine" self.
True, the courts need to decide specific cases that are brought before it in light of what the Constitution says, but that is all they should be limited to.
Let's repeat the note above: In a very telling manner, the Constitution itself never, ever refers to the "supreme" court as the "Supreme" Court. It purposefully and significantly always uses the lower case "s" as in "supreme" Court when it mentions the court. Supreme with an upper case "S" means divine or holy, and it is just that sort of implication that the supreme court has promulgated. The supreme Court is not "Supreme" in any way, but only "supreme," meaning highest among the other courts, and this is an enormous difference.
Obama being the Lefty he is, is married to the obsolete antique Jones Act because it is a crown jewel of the Anti-American Gangster Big Labor Bosses that Obama and the Democrats are in bed with.
Enacted in 1920, ostensibly to serve the National Interest by protecting the American Shipping and Ship Building industries, it has devolved over time under the tender loving care of the Liberals into a threat to the national interest.
Its primary purpose today is to protect inefficient non-competitive featherbedding Labor Unions against competition from both American non-union, and foreign non-union, companies.
Among other harms, it has prevented the deploying of the foreign aid ships of other countries during both Katrina and the Gulf Oil disasters. Bush wisely suspended it for Katrina, but Obama has conspicuously refused to do so for the Gulf Oil disaster.
Its repeal should be a first order of business for any new Conservative Congress. It is just one more piece of junk left over from the catastrophic New Deal that is still cluttering up, and strangling, our national life.
Don't Ask Don't Tell! was repealed today by a Lame Duck session of Congress. It was just one more sad day for America after many hundreds of such bad days. Clearly, the tired old degraded, and degenerate Republic is on its last legs. As the street preacher is wont to say, "The End Is Nigh!"
We now have officially a Homosexual Military that will have decreasing respect both at home among the people and abroad among the nations of the world. This was in many ways the last nail in the coffin. God's wrath is to be expected in increasing waves from here on out. This nation has now gone from God's last best hope for humanity, to God's next target for His vengeance.
