Five times the Internet speed, for free. Because capitalism.

speedtest

Why did my Internet get so fast for the same price?  I’m really not sure.  Well, Google Fiber is coming to town.  And in a completely unrelated event [cough, cough], Time Warner Cable decided to dramatically increase access speeds with zero price increases.

You do NOT get this with Socialism or Communism.  And Crapitalism is only marginally better than those.  Regional monopolies sound better than country-wide monopolies, but for the end user they are still monopolies.  You need real free-market competition to optimize things for everyone.

That is all.

Don’t miss the upside about the Pope’s Socialism and climate nonsense

First, remember how fun it is to remind the “Christian” Left that their new Socialist BFF is still anti-abortion and pro-real marriage.  They love the Pope for agreeing with their anti-biblical economic policies, but ask them to convince you that they’d care what the Pope said about science if he disagreed with them.  Or have them ask the Pope how he feels about killing unwanted children then selling their body parts.

But there’s more!  And it is much more important.  His extremism will cause many Catholics to reconsider their religious views.  Example: Politics: So, the Catholic Church has a major problem right now. …And the Pope is only a part of it | Best of Cain.

The Pope is as well-versed on basic economic concepts and climate change as he is on the foundations for his role and on the solas.  While the Catholic organization is pretty explicit on not letting people take a cafeteria approach to its beliefs, lots of people look the other way on the Papal infallibility thing and other doctrines they don’t care for.  But this guy is getting so far off the rails that more people will reconsider everything he stands for.

It is sad how he and his fellow Leftists want to pull up the drawbridge on the poor and not let them have electricity and other things that would dramatically improve their standard of living.  But it is for the good of the poor, right?

One of the many reasons you can know that Jim Wallis and Sojourners are fakes

They have article after article on Catholics and never note that their views are irreconcilable with Christianity.  Here’s one of many examples: Stephen Colbert on Pope Francis, Cardinal Dolan and (of Course) Stephen Colbert – David Gibson | God’s Politics Blog | Sojourners.

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis is a fake who pretends to be a centrist while he is really a Leftist extremist.  And he pretends to be an evangelical while being a cheerleader for the Pope.

If you can’t see that Wallis is a wolf, you’ve got a problem.

Why do false teachers insist that Islam is tolerant?

False teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie repeat the lie that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.

Why are they so ignorant of world religions?  Of course some Muslims are tolerant and don’t blow things up.  But what does the Koran teach?  How are Muslim-majority nations run?  See Is Islam tolerant of other world religions? « Wintery Knight

If these fakes don’t even know the basics about Christianity or other religions, why should their views on politics and economics be considered useful?

Q&A: How can I be better prepared for evangelism? – read a free chapter of Lord Foulgrin’s Letters, a modernized version of C.S. Lewis’ classic, The Screwtape Letters.  Both are great books.  Here’s a snippet (the writer is a senior demon coaching a junior demon, so everything is backwards):

Let Fletcher be a “good example” until he’s blue in the face—as long as he doesn’t explain the forbidden message. Look around you, Squaltaint, and you’ll see innumerable Christian sludgebags who’ve been good neighbors and model coworkers for decades. But they’ve never actually told those around them what it means to be a Christian. Many of them imagine by now the message has somehow magically gotten across, but of course it hasn’t. Excellent.

Fletcher made the statement to Ryan he’d like to share the gospel with his wife and mother-in-law “when the time is right”? This frightened you, but it can work to our advantage. Don’t let him grasp the Enemy’s notion that evangelism is one beggar telling another where to find bread. Instead, turn evangelism into something more complex or obscure, something that will happen one day, but never today.

Fill him with an irrational dread of bringing up the Carpenter and the forbidden mes sage in conversation. If the vermin analyzed it, they’d be on to us. What else but our efforts could explain why they get so apprehensive about doing for someone what they believe is the biggest favor in the universe—telling them about the Enemy’s plan to save them from hell and give them heaven?

Don’t let Fletcher ask himself why a man from Portland should care about what a man from Chicago thinks of him as they both fly to Philadelphia. Why, when he will never see this man again (unless he accepts the message, in which case he’ll be deeply grateful), should he be so frightened of the man’s rejection? Why would they feel so hesitant about telling people what’s clearly in their best interests? Don’t let the obvious absurdity settle in, or he may catch on it’s we who are playing tricks on his tiny mind, fueling this irrational fear.

OBAMA’S SOCIALIST AGENDA

Is Barack Obama a Socialist? To avoid the question is to avoid personal accountability to our nation, our individual rights, and our freedoms. If Barack Obama is a socialist, the evidence will speak unequivocally, his policies will confirm it implicitly and his stated agenda will answer the question undeniably. Socialism is the government forcibly taking from those who have earned what they have and giving it to others. It crushes initiative, innovation and spirit while fomenting class warfare, racial strife and social welfare as it devours a nation. Heed the words of a statesman: Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. – Winston Churchill

Militant Gays Demand to Donate Risky Blood – as usual, this is about politics and hurt feelings, not helping others.  As noted in Why didn’t the media cover the new CDC study on HIV transmission?, if a communicable, preventable disease rate is 44 times higher for one particular group (gay and bisexual men) that just might be a reason to put some safeguards in place.  Even if testing has improved, can you imagine the impact and lawsuits if tainted blood slipped through?

NAACP Offended at Black Holes: Hears Black Whores – Hallmark’s Hoops and Yo-Yo cards are really funny.  They had a card with an astronomy theme that referenced “black holes” and some thin-skinned, hopelessly political correct professional victims insisted that it said “black whores.”  Yeah, right, another sample from Hallmark’s line of prostitution cards.  Sheesh. Listen to the card yourself at the link and note the context.

More pathetic bad thinking and race baiting by pro-abort Jim Wallis

See How Christian is Tea Party Libertarianism? – Jim Wallis – God’s Politics Blog

.The Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis-led Sojourners / God’s politics blog is the opposite of social justice, but he hypocritically plays the race card and says the Tea Party is non-Christian.

But these people support legalized abortion and argue against restrictions against it.  They were wildly in favor of Obamacare and its taxpayer funded abortions.  They are pro-abortion, not pro-choice or pro-life.

It is so morbidly ironic for them to play the race card when they support the abortion industry that kill blacks at a rate three times that of whites and Hispanics at a rate double that of whites.  That’s racism.

Wallis says the Gospel is “all about” wealth redistribution.  We should obviously give generously as Christians but to say that wealth redistribution is the Gospel couldn’t be more wrong.
