5 Obvious Principles of Human Nature That Baffle Liberals – These are foundational issues that caused Leftists to go off course and stay there.  This is why their solutions haven’t worked and will never work.

Why a lustful man doesn’t want a woman

In the following lines, Lewis explains why a lustful man ironically has no use for a real woman. He writes:

We use a most unfortunate idiom when we say, of a lustful man prowling the streets, that he “wants a woman.” Strictly speaking, a woman is just what he does not want. He wants a pleasure for which a woman happens to be the necessary piece of apparatus. How much he cares about the woman as such may be gauged by his attitude to her five minutes after fruition (one does not keep the carton after one has smoked the cigarettes).

Booker T. Washington vs NAACP

Booker T. Washington, an educator, reformer, and founder of Tuskegee University, preached a philosophy of self-reliance by elevating oneself through education, hard work and entrepreneurship as an agenda for black America’s advancement. According to former congressional representative Allen West, those three values completely align with conservative principles.

If Booker T. Washington’s agenda for black Americans had not been circumvented by radical progressives W.E.B. Du Bois and the NAACP, we would be experiencing a different America today.

Booker T. Washington’s prescription for advancement was specific, realistic, and measurable and results driven and useful for any individual (regardless of race). However, the NAACP mission statement is full of vague social justice terminology with no specifics and is unmeasurable and unattainable with no sufficient directions to how to achieve it other than through government intervention or force. In fact, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 already covers their entire mission and vision statements.

Molech Cult Demands Total Dominance  — Yep.  Leftists love abortion as much as Molech loved his version of child sacrifice.  They use the “safe, legal and rare” mantra in a morbidly cynical ploy to pretend they think it is less than ideal, but their actions betray them.  They want it legal and often, and they don’t really care if it is safe for mother or child.

The Reality and Roots of Gay-on-Gay Violence and ‘Gay Men’s Obsession with Sex,’ in One Homosexual Writer’s Words – Gross, but true, and all the more to encourage people to change – or better yet, to avoid the lifestyle to begin with.

HIV infections are exploding —  This is not surprising.  People conditioned to rebel against God’s created order are not the type to take nanny-state advice on using condoms.  And it is symptomatic of the pathology that you would even have to encourage them to use condoms, disease risks or not.  You’d think that they would be begging for condoms to keep the feces off their body.

HIV infections are rising among gay men in many parts of the world, the World Health Organization warned Friday, urging all men who have sex with men to take antiretroviral drugs to prevent infection.

“We are seeing exploding epidemics,” warned Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads WHO’s HIV department.

Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men — the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva.

While images of skeletal men dying of AIDS in the 1980s pushed the world to act, a younger generation that has grown up among new treatments that make it possible to live with HIV are less focused on the disease, he suggested.

Today, this group is 19 times more likely than the general population to be infected by HIV, Hirnschall said.

How involved fathers improve the mental health of their daughters – This is intuitive and factual, unlike the cherry-picked Leftist studies insisting that deliberately single moms and/or Lesbians are better for raising boys.

In a series of studies beginning in 1999, he found that when girls had a warm relationship with their fathers and spent a lot of time with them in the first five to seven years of their lives, they had a reduced risk of early puberty, early initiation of sex and teen pregnancy.

7 Good Reasons To Stop Looking at Porn Right Now – All good reasons.

5. The Cost to Your Mission

The Lord’s commission is an urgent commission because it is a matter of eternal life and death. Time is short and hell is forever, which makes the Christian’s business an urgent business. And yet so many Christians are distracted by something as evil and as wasteful as pornography. Their attention is arrested, their energy depleted, their usefulness undermined. Don Whitney says it well: “If there are any regrets in Heaven, they will only be that we did not use our earthly time more for the glory of God and for growth in His grace. If this is so, this may be Heaven’s only similarity with hell, which will be filled with agonizing laments over time so foolishly squandered.” For the sake of your mission, stop looking at pornography.

Shamed Prophets Become Fearless – I’m no prophet, but I agree with these points.  We shouldn’t shed diplomacy, but you can become more bold as you learn and practice more, and as you develop an eternal perspective.

[W]hen was the last time you hedged on an opinion because of…those around you? When did you last choose your words based more on the politics of a situation than on truth?…

It’s no wonder that one of the first tasks of any prophet was to make himself shameful. John the Baptist wore camel hair and ate insects. Isaiah had to walk around naked for years. Ezekiel had to cook his food over dung. Elijah ate only food carried by ravens—nasty carrion birds. The first thing God told Hosea to do was to marry a whore.

Prophets must be fearless, immune to the pressures of kings and crowds, aligned only with the breath of God.

We are in need of prophets now….

Prophets must be immune to floggings on Facebook and Twitter. They must be fearless before friends and tenure committees and stadiums filled with the priests of Baal. The cool-shaming can have no sting. The world is busy applying pressure on “social issues,” and Christians are busy caving left and right, trying to accept fresh cultural dogma simply so that they might be accepted….

When “war on science” means “daring to fight corruption” – This is foundational to any intelligent discussions on Intelligent Design/Darwinism, global warming/”climate change,” etc.  People respond to incentives, and there are plenty of incentives for scientists to read from the script.

Obviously, academic freedom means nothing when one’s views differ from the liberal faculty majority – or when they contrast with views and “science” that garners the university millions of dollars a year from government, foundation, corporate and other sources, to advance the alarmist climate change agenda. All these institutions are intolerant of research by scientists like Legates, because they fear losing grant money if they permit contrarian views, discussions, debates or anything that questions the climate chaos “consensus.” At this point, academic freedom and free speech obviously apply only to advance selected political agendas, and campus “diversity” exists in everything but opinions.

Climate alarmists have been implicated in the ClimateGate scandal, for conspiring to prevent their adversaries from receiving grants, publishing scientific papers, and advancing their careers. Yet they are staunchly supported by their universities, professional organizations, union – and groups like Greenpeace.

Meanwhile, climate disaster skeptics are vilified and harassed by these same groups, who pretend they are fighting to “let scientists conduct research without the threat of politically motivated attacks.” Far worse, we taxpayers are paying the tab for the junk science – and then getting stuck with regulations, soaring energy bills, lost jobs and reduced living standards…based on that bogus science.

Eat-the-Rich Socialist Michael Moore Owns Nine HousesSadly, the Leftists who cheer this hypocrite will never know these facts.  Their media of choice won’t tell them.

Far left propagandist and rabble-rouser Michael Moore righteously proclaims that he is of the proletariat and not part of the 1% (video). Yet hawking his anti-capitalist B.S. on the capitalist market has earned him enough to buy nine houses. The dumping of Kathy Glynn, his wife of 22 years, is bringing embarrassing details to light regarding his conspicuous consumption:

His hit movies and best-selling books have begat a lifestyle far from most ballcap-wearing, duck-waddling denizens of Flint [a rustbelt hellhole that he falsely claims as his hometown].

If you want to prove you don’t hate gays, all you have to do is worship at their feet – Exactly.  Have you noticed how the iconically macho National Football League now reports to the gay lobby?  Same thing for the NBA, MLB, etc.  What a bunch of wimps.  They join loads of apostate Christian churches and weak-willed people who would rather bow to political correctness than speak the truth.  The truth sounds like hate to those that hate the truth.

On 20 June 2005, twenty-one-year-old Wafa Samir Ibrahim al-Biss was detained at a crossing into Israel when something about her gait struck the guards on duty at that post as somewhat amiss. This Palestinian woman was arrested after a search revealed she had been carrying 22 lbs. of explosives strapped to her body. While al-Biss had ostensibly been attempting to enter Israel to attend a follow-up appointment at the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva, questioning revealed that it had been her intent to detonate the payload she’d been carrying at that institution. The would-be bomber had been treated there five months previous for severe burns received after a gas canister exploded on a fire while she was cooking at her refugee camp home in the Gaza Strip.

The Real Reason “50 Shades of Grey” is so Popular

I think women gravitate to 50 Shades of Grey (and other similar erotica) because they haven’t embraced the proper roles in sex and marriage. Feminism has taught them that they can never, ever, in any fashion submit to a man…unless it’s during sex, if that sort of thing is their cup of tea. Anything goes in the bedroom. Feminism told them that it’s degrading to be a stay-at-home mom or to submit to a husband or to want a lot of children. They should never have sex with their husbands unless they feel like it. They should never let a man make decisions for their family. But having a stranger use and abuse you sexually? Well, that’s empowering, don’t ya know.

Apology to an Anti-Chicken Bigot – If you need a good laugh then read Mike Adams’ piece exposing Leftist hypocrisy.

Black Christians and the Myth of Prosperity PreachingGreat points by someone who caught on to the scam and broke free.  Tip offs: The pastor mainly talks about giving, all giving is directed to go to his church (i.e., him) and he pressures you to give to him rather than pay other obligations that you committed to.  Yes, we should give generously, but not to frauds.  See 2 Corinthians 9.

After I completed a couple of degrees and began associating with a group of financially intelligent individuals, I started to learn and apply sound financial principles.  I then realized that my financial situation had improved for two reasons: more education (resulted in a better job with higher pay and/or promotion on current job) and knowledge of how to manage and invest my income.  I also realized that my pastors never mentioned education or investments (other than investing in the kingdom of God) as a means to acquire wealth.

I then began to wonder why my wealthy pastors never encouraged their members to acquire as much education as possible as a means to a higher-paying job, or to seek out a professional financial planner to advise them on how to set up a budget and invest some of their income.  Is it because the wealthy pastors know that if their faithful followers become educated, it will more difficult to manipulate them?  In fact, on many occasions the pastors would mock the members who did have college degrees.

One at a time, please. – A great take-down of the “serial monogamy isn’t being promiscuity” fallacy so prevalent in the world and much of the church. 

Serial monogamy is elevated to such lofty heights in our society that it would be easy to forget that all it really means is one at a time.   Women will always search for a societal definition of the boundary between good girls and sluts, and our current answer is:

Good girls don’t do more than one man at a time.

Many would assume that modern women no longer care about such trivialities as the difference between good girls and sluts, especially since we now have sluts literally marching down the streets of every major western city.  While this mistake is understandable, it misconstrues what the slutwalks are all about.  The slutwalkers claim to embrace the term slut, but if they didn’t feel a powerful stigma they wouldn’t be protesting.  If the slutwalkers really wanted to show how unconcerned they are with the stigma of the word, they would proudly display the number of penises they had personally sampled, each eager to one up the more prude and inexperienced in their ranks.  But this would be taking the whole slut thing a bit too far, so very few women would be willing to march with an honest number.

Rebecca Vipond Brink at The Frisky recently posted an excellent example of all of this in Girl Talk: It’s Not Wrong To Date While You’re Divorcing:

I started dating immediately after I told my now-ex that I wanted to get a divorce. This was because, as one of my friends very aptly put it, I wasn’t really “rebounding” so much as just “bounding” — rebounding assumes that you’re bouncing off of something, and I wanted a divorce because my marriage no longer qualified as a relationship.

The problem occurred when some of the men she was dating declined to have sex with her because she was still legally married:

I think I dated maybe eight men in a six-month period. Two of them (so we’re talking 25 percent) enjoyed my company, enjoyed the sex, and then all of a sudden decided to tell me that they “couldn’t” date me because it was morally wrong because I was “still married.”

Obviously she felt the burn of being slut shamed by these men, or she wouldn’t have bothered writing an article complaining about the terrible unfairness of it all. 

So she apparently slept with 8 guys in 6 months and was wounded that two of them decided to stop sleeping with her because of their consciences (or was that just a good excuse?). 

Raising Daughters Who Will Attract and Recognize the Right Kind of Men – Read it all.

Instead of intimidating all your daughter’s potential suitors, raise a daughter who intimidates them just fine on her own. Because, you know what’s intimidating? Strength and dignity. Deep faith. Self-assuredness. Wisdom. Kindness. Humility. Industriousness. Those are the bricks that build the wall that withstands the advances of old Slouchy-Pants, whether you ever show up with your Winchester locked and loaded or not. The unsuitable suitor finds nothing more terrifying than a woman who knows her worth to God and to her family.

Bowe Bergdahl: Possibly Obama’s Most Potent Weapon in His War Against the US Military – Make no mistake: Obama is an enemy of the U.S.

Obama has attacked the military in part by pulling the rug out from under it financially and redirecting the money to pernicious social programs that encourage indolence, dependence, and illegal immigration, but more effectively by eroding its morale.

Toward this end, Obama has gone out of his way to homosexualize the military. He has thrown away the gains that thousands sacrificed their lives for in Iraq. He has eschewed victory as an objective in Afghanistan, reducing troops to sitting ducks with absurd rules of engagement. He has purged the officer corps of patriots, replacing them with political flunkies. He has overseen a VA that lets vets die by the dozens on secret waiting lists, even as invaders across our undefended border receive excellent healthcare promptly and for free. He has let it be known that with more “flexibility” he will betray American interests for those of our adversaries in Russia.

But perhaps most damaging of all, his regime has treated Bowe Bergdahl as an honorable soldier.

Abortionist Leroy Carhart Botches Another Abortion, Sends Black Woman to Hospital – This is all over the mainstream media, right?

A friend asked, “If homosexuality is genetic, then why are there still gay people?”  (He’s on the correct side of the issue and just wanted to confirm his understanding).  My response: 1. It isn’t genetic (twin studies and the like). 2. Even if it was, it would still be a sin.  3. Darwnists tie themselves in knots trying to say why it and abortion fit with their “it’s all about getting your genes passed on” worldview.  They argue for both so strenuously that if the world had no gays or abortions they’d probably be wondering why they didn’t exist!  4. Yes, in theory, a gene would die out.  But of course they’ll claim that social pressures made gays reproduce.  5. I love to point out how the pro-gay/pro-abortion people wouldn’t vote for restrictions on hypothetical gays in the womb, whether genetic or even predispositions to be gay.  I’d be glad to vote for any restrictions on abortion, including that one, because it would save lives and prove the point that all abortions kill human beings.  And of course, it is consistent with my views that we should not be violent against gays — just that we should share the truth with them.

Please Don’t Say These Six Things at My Funeral – Good list.  I like #1: When I die, don’t say, “He was a good man.”  Don’t wait until I die, say it now, as often and as loudly as you can!  Seriously, don’t say it at all.

Don’t turn my funeral into a celebration of my moral resume. For one thing, I don’t have one. I’m guilty of far more immoral acts than moral ones. Secondly, even if I were the male equivalent of Mother Teresa, don’t eulogize me. Talk about the goodness of the Spirit who calls, gathers, enlightens, sanctifies, and keeps us in the true faith. Talk about our good Father who’s made us all His children in baptism. Talk about the good Husband that Christ is to His bride, the church.

Pres. Obama is asking Congress for $3.7 billion – $67,912.28 per child – to deal with 57,000 minors illegally entering the U.S., Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) tweeted today.

But, the problem is more than money, Rep. Gohmert tells MRCTV, since Obama’s threats and imperial actions are sending “the message that America has become lawless”:

“His lawlessly announcing his one-man legislation allowing people to come illegally and stay illegally sent the message that America had become lawless and would not be enforcing our own border or laws. Now, demanding money or else he’ll allow even more devastation to our health, education and housing systems should not be condoned nor encouraged.”

The Festival Where ‘Christianity’ Is Just Earth Worship – These Leftists masquerading as Christians get more bizarre every year.  In a weird way it is good, because anyone following them is obviously not interested in following the one true God.

Every year, Hot Springs, North Carolina hosts the Wild Goose Festival, a four-day musical and spiritual festival marketed towards Progressive Christians. This year, I made the trip to catalogue the more outrageous presentations, speeches, and goings-on. There was the usual contingent of liberal heroes such as Sojourner’s Jim Wallis, “Moral Mondays” leader Dr. William Barber, and Frank Schaeffer, a self-described “Christian atheist.” There were all the overwrought panels on topics such as “Post Traumatic Church Syndrome” and “First Decolonize Your Mind.” But easily, the most bizarre highlight of the trip was the Carnival de Resistance.

According to a promotional email, the Carnival de Resistance is an “art intervention” experiment determined to “[throw] off the yoke of social niceties, restless sanitation, and religious piety to provide a raucous expression of grief and longing and hope for Creation.” Besides their performances, the Carnival also promised to transform “shape-shifting-trickster-style” into a village touting “energy alternatives and attempt various sustainable practices in regard to food, waste, and transportation.”

Former Employee of ‘Big Cheese’ Wrote FDA Letter that Put NY Artisan Cheese Makers Out of Work – Just another variant of Crony Capitalism, which isn’t capitalism at all – just big businesses buying favors from both parties.  The bigger the government is, the more of this you’ll get.  This should be common ground for the Left and the Right. 

12 Questions to Ask Before You Watch ‘Game of Thrones’ – Good questions to ask about any media you consume.

Study: most couples who stick it out through an unhappy period return to happiness – Good news, and one more reason not to divorce (although the Bible is the only reason you really  need).  As some famous guy noted (C.S. Lewis, I think), wedding vows aren’t for when times are good, because you don’t need them then.  The vows are for when things are tough.

The Pathology of the ‘Male Feminist’ – Yep.  There is a reason you find lots of frauds in those roles.  Typical “Bro-choice” guys. 

“He Dropped Me Off at the Abortion Clinic and Never Returned, Now Every Day I Mourn My Baby” – And yet another “bro-choicer.”  This is a common theme: Women who don’t want to kill their children but do so to keep a jerk of a guy who will end up leaving anyway.  Please consider that guys who want to kill their kids probably aren’t “keepers.”

VA destroyed records to cover up massive cancellations for wait-list fraud – More predictable results of a large, mostly unaccountable government institution.  They should have just given veterans discounts on insurance and let them use regular institutions.  More competition = lower costs, better service and less corruption.

Convicted Heavy Metal ‘Christian’ Singer Admits Being Atheist, Duped Fans to Sell Music – He tried to have his wife killed.  The guy isn’t terribly credible, but it was interesting that he noted that only 1 in 10 bands they toured with were really Christian.  Fame can be poisonous.  His atheistic worldview sure helped him rationalize a lot of evil: Adultery, conspiracy to commit murder, living as a fake Christian for profit, steroid use and more.  But there is still hope for him if he repents and believes. 

“The first time I cheated on my wife, my interpretation of morality was now convenient for me,” Lambesis explained. “I felt less guilty if I decided, “Well, marriage isn’t a real thing, because Christianity isn’t real. God isn’t real. Therefore, marriage is just a stupid piece of paper with the government.”But he continued to profess to be a Christian, as did others in the band, in order to sell records to Christian music fans.

I wonder if the atheists realize that his behavior counts against their worldview, not ours.  He was apparently persuaded by “New Atheists” like Richard Dawkins. 

Stay classy, Hillary — It doesn’t sound like it was a “hard choice” for her to attack a 12 year old rape victim.  This is a thousand times more of a “war on woman” than anything the media exaggerates for Republicans.  If the media is forced to talk about this it will hurt her.

The Daily Beast’s Josh Rogoin took a break from his national-security beat and tracked down the victim in that crime, now 52, who alleges that Hillary Clinton did attack her as part of the defense, and much more. In the exclusive interview, Rogin reports the woman’s accusation that Hillary Clinton lied in court documents to portray her as a sex-crazed spoiled brat who threw herself at older men and then accused them of rape:

The victim’s allegation that Clinton smeared her following her rape is based on a May 1975 court affidavit written by Clinton on behalf of Thomas Alfred Taylor, one of the two alleged attackers, whom Clinton was appointed to defend.

“I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing,” Clinton, then named Hillary D. Rodham, wrote in the affidavit. “I have also been informed that she has in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body. Also that she exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”

Clinton also wrote that a child psychologist told her that children in early adolescence “tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences,” especially when they come from “disorganized families, such as the complainant.”

The victim vigorously denied Clinton’s accusations and said there has never been any explanation of what Clinton was referring to in that affidavit. She claims she never accused anyone of attacking her before her rape.

“I’ve never said that about anyone. I don’t know why she said that. I have never made false allegations. I know she was lying,” she said. “I definitely didn’t see older men. I don’t know why Hillary put that in there and it makes me plumb mad.”

Addendum: It’s worth noting that the Free Beacon has been banned from the University of Arkansas library archives after making the audio of the interview public. That decision, Alana Goodman reports, was made by a donor to … Hillary Clinton.

FIVE QUESTIONS FOR CHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE THE BIBLE SUPPORTS GAY MARRIAGE – Great list.  Number 4 is always interesting.  Mention this and watch the pro-gay “Christians” squirm.  Gays have 40+ times higher rates of Syphilis and HIV, partly because 62% of men who know they are HIV-positive have unprotected sex with men.  Then there are the health risks cited below. Why don’t the Leftist churches, mainstream media and “comprehensive sex education” classes tell you about these things?  Apparently facts can be “homophobic,” too.

4. What will you say about anal intercourse?

The answer is probably “nothing.” But if you feel strongly about the dangers of tobacco or fuss over the negative affects of carbs, cholesterol, gmo’s, sugar, gluten, trans fats, and hydrogenated soybean oil may have on your health, how can you not speak out about the serious risks associated with male-male intercourse. How is it loving to celebrate what we know to be a singularly unhealthy lifestyle? According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, the risk of anal cancer increases 4000 percent among those who engage in anal intercourse. Anal sex increases the risk of a long list of health problems, including “rectal prolapse, perforation that can go septic, chlamydia, cyrptosporidosis, giardiasis, genital herpes, genital warts, isosporiasis, microsporidiosis, gonorrhea, viral hepatitis B and C, and syphilis” (quoted in Reilly, 55). And this is to say nothing of the higher rates of HIV and other health concerns with disproportionate affects on the homosexual community.

Where the Next School Shooting Will Not Take PlaceGreat to see people implementing crime-preventing, life-saving policies.

Union Grove ISD officials [last month] put up signs outside their schools stating employees are armed and will “use whatever force is necessary” to protect students in the district, according to News-Journal news partner KETK.

The Union Grove ISD board in January enacted a policy to allow select, licensed and trained teachers and administrators to possess a firearm on campus. Community members wholeheartedly supported the move.

This guy is great. He even names names.

The United States produced enough energy to supply 84 percent of its needs in 2013 – This is truly great news.

While we should always be wary of advocating for the canard of “energy independence”purely for its own sake — because doing so means eschewing the competitive, price-controlling, and wealth-creating powers of free and open trade and instead inviting the protectionism that generally benefits special interests over all consumers — it’s always worth looking at just how far the United States has come in terms of oil-and-gas production capacity in just a few short years, both in terms of boosting our energy security with diversified sources (including ourselves) and for boosting our ability to compete in the global economy by growing our own.

ER use skyrocketing with Obamacare?Of course.  Overwhelmed ERs were supposed to get relief due to Obamacare, but the easily anticipated law of unintended consequences says otherwise.  Obamacare reduces supply (fewer doctors willing to accept Medicaid and Obamacare plans) and increases demand (free money!).  That couldn’t do anything but increase demand for ER visits.  Were they foolish for not anticipating this?  Probably, but the more likely scenario is that they knew but didn’t care.  This is all about government control and single-payer.  It was never about increased health care coverage.

Before you say, “That could never happen!,” remember that just a few years ago no one thought the government could force you to participate in a “same-sex marriage” and that if you refused you could be fined and either lose your business or be forced to go to “reeducation” training.

New study: relationship problems, not family rejection, leading cause of higher gay suicides – This is an important article, as it debunks many myths about the tragedy of gay suicides.  Disagreeing with people does not make them kill themselves.  Our media, entertainment and schools hate Christians but that doesn’t make me want to hurt myself.  As the article shows, even those gay leaders trying to make a case for happiness end up wildly disillusioned.

I think that the problem is that in the gay lifestyle, you have a typically male emphasis on physical appearance, sex and pleasure. There is none of the moderating influence of women, which tends to push men into commitments, responsibility and stability.

If you really love a person, then you don’t tell them that the dangerous thing they want to do is not dangerous. That’s not love. It’s easier for you to approve of them and be liked by everyone, but it’s not love.

Causes of Death in 1900 vs. Today: One Chart Puts Firearms & Natural Disasters Threat in Perspective – Deaths from guns and natural disasters makes the news because they are rare, but the attention makes people think they are the real problem.  Eating a little less and a little healthier and exercising a little more would save countless more lives than any counterproductive “climate change” or gun control measures.

What you’ll see is that America has been whipping infectious diseases for over a century, thanks to better sterilization, sanitation, and vaccination techniques, and now, Americans are living nearly twice as long. Currently, the average age is around 79 years old, and back in 1900, it was about 47 years old. Some “crisis” we have on our hands.

But it’s what you don’t see on this chart that is really the story. Natural disaster and extreme weather-related deaths don’t even make the chart.

In light of the federal government’s drive to enforce stricter environmental regulations for the reason of combatting manmade “climate change,” it should be said that 98% fewer people are dying from extreme weather events or natural disasters than in the 1920s. Extreme weather events currently comprise about 0.07% of all fatalities globally.

We’re also being told about the danger posed by law-abiding citizens possessing firearms. But where is that threat on this chart? Let me help you: It’s not there. Deaths from firearms totalled 31,672 in 2010 (just to keep the comparisons apples to apples). In that year, around 19,392 of those deaths were from firearms-related suicides (half of all suicides).

What about accidents? Around 570 of those were from firearms of a total of 126,100 accidents. Firearms murders, mostly by handgun, came to about 8,775 counts (of 12,996 total murders) in 2010, according to FBI statistics.

Where does this put these in the big picture? Deaths from heart disease in 2010 were 595,444 total, while deaths from cancer were 573,855.  One factor for such high rates to keep in mind is that Americans are dying from causes that strike those who live longer than human beings ever did before (risk factors go up after age 47).

Boy Scouts’ Gay Leader Ban Preserves Worst Stereotypes, Holder Says – Kevin Johnson | God’s Politics Blog | Sojourners — Gee, why would the blog of Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis do a fluff piece like that?  Because they are wildly pro-gay but trying to pretend they are not.

What is most despicable about this is that they are advocating to have homosexual men spend time alone — even on overnight trips! — with young boys.  That’s just sick.  Even honest gay leaders will tell you about how aggressively many gays will pursue young men.

Wallis & Co. just get more and more despicable.  They actually think that being pro-abortion and pushing to have gays hang out with young boys is “social justice.”  These Leftists mock God 24×7.

BRAZIL’S CHILD SEX WORKERS FORCED TO CASH IN ON WORLD CUP – What a tragedy.  This will be even worse at the next Olympics.  The numbers are staggering.

A good Hillary summary – Hopefully someone will throw a bake sale or something to raise money for her.  Then again, your definition of “dead broke” is pretty elastic if it includes buying a second mansion so you can carpetbag your way into the Senate while your husband pulls down huge lifetime retirement payments.
