NPR ran a story on the flag being removed from the State House grounds in S.C. They had some woman "representative" on there, recorded on the house floor, and she was literally shrieking about the flag. If ever there was a boni fide hater, that was one. Sounded like a Nazi pontificating on the Jews.
Later after I got home, I turned on the tv. Some black caucus clown was on the floor of the house up in D.C. He said that Robert E. Lee called the Confederate Battle Flag a "symbol of treason." If Ignorance is bliss this guy has the Dali Lama beat for high Nirvana factor.

Seeing what kind of people did this thing, I feel better. It wasn't normal, intelligent people. It was the bottom feeders. They got the flag moved. Southerners got a shot in the arm of Southern Pride, and a wake up call about what the Morlocks have in store for us if we let them get away with it. I have seen more Confederate flags flying in this county, more letters to editor in the paper that were pro-Southern, and heard more Southern Pride reflected in people's voices in the last two weeks than in the last ten years. Every time the out of staters and the professional race baiters stir the pot, they create more Southern patriots. They should take a look at how British efforts to stamp out the IRA worked. But they're too stupid to do that.
I put this quote in here from Walter Williams because I have been reading his commentary on WND for more than ten years. He's not only shrewd, he's a thoroughly decent man. I wrote him once, asking if I could post some of his work on my old blog. He wrote me back a nice letter, and said I could and was welcome to. It was hand written and he signed it. Who do you know who would do that anymore?
Move On. Org is not wasting any time. They're moving on alright, to Christians. I'm not one, so you might say I have no dog in this fight. But that's not true. Because I don't believe in God or religion doesn't mean I have no appreciation for Christian values. I think they kept the country on an even keel for a long, long time. But the facts are, Christianity across the world is declining, and especially in America and Europe. Don't take my word for it, do a little research on the internet and the numbers, though they differ from source to source, are pretty plain.
Part of it is the prolific birth rate of Moslems. It's nothing for a Moslem family to include ten or more children. In the U.S., and in Europe, the birth rate of ethnic groups that tend to be Christian is so low that they aren't even replacing themselves. In America, Islam has a big appeal to inner city minorities (you know who I'm talking about if you read the papers in big cities). It's not an accident that so many of these folks are named Mohammed Abdul Akbar Patooti Kissim or monikers of that nature. Take a drive down some of the streets in Atlanta where there are mosques, on a Friday, and the believers are out in the streets praying because there's no room for them in the mosque. I haven't seen that at any Christian churches in awhile. In Atlanta they block the traffic, but the police steer clear. Large numbers of black people, anxious to be offended and put upon. Not a good place for the police to be and after Ferguson and Baltimore, they aren't playing that game anymore. So block the streets. But if a Christian church did that, it'd be blue lights and traffic control as far up and down the street as you could see.
Then too, in Africa, the Middle East, and places like Indonesia, Christians are just being killed off. Lots of them convert to save their lives. After all, God has a poor record of defending his adherents when it comes to Christianity.
Part of the reason is a systematic attempt on the part of the government to stamp Christianity out. No prayers at the Air Force Academy. No prayers in school. No clubs in schools affiliated with Christianity. No nativity scenes at your court house. Mosques get tax exempt status but the government works overtime taking away the tax exempt status of churches that have been around for a hundred years or more. And then there are the judges up in D.C. and at the Federal Circuit Courts.
The Supreme Court rendered 26 major decisions in the current term, and 22 of them were "liberal" in nature. This according to NPR, in one of their self congratulatory broadcasts this week. If you don't go along with the gay marriage edict they recently issued, you can get in a lot of trouble. Take a look at what is happening to florists and bakers, for example, who can't in good conscience participate in gay weddings. Just google it,
Or how about people who work in court houses, issuing marriage licenses? Now the Supreme Court says they have to do something that goes against their beliefs, or lose their jobs. Kind of like living in Nazi Germany in the 30's. Get with the program or suffer the consequences.
One thing that is funny about it, if anything can be said to be humorous about this, is that a lot of black Christians now find themselves hoist on their own petard. They made much of using the law to force business people to serve everyone. Now they're the ones who are on the receiving end of a similar law. Can't have a double standard, now can we? Or, being the country this is, we can but you have to put a fig leaf of respectability on it and they're having trouble doing that.
Personally I don't care either way about the Gay Rights thing, but listening to some of the Rainbow Coalition Folks on the news, I think they're going after Christians hammer and tongs. Those guys on staff make good money, and they aren't giving up their jobs just because they got everything they wanted out of the Supreme Court. No sir, "doing right ain't got no end" as the Red Legs Captain Terrell said in "The Outlaw Josey Wales."

But there's hope. People are starting to wake up to what's going on with the government and the "law." More and more are dealing with the reality of having some withered up old prune like Ruth Bader Ginsberg telling them how to live. For a long time now, I've been living according to the precepts of Robert E. Heinlein. Here's one of his most important "rules to live by."
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.Robert A. Heinlein
