Roundup

Comedian Jon Lovitz mugged by reality — twice! — First, he felt betrayed by Obama’s class warfare and lies.  Then he found out how “tolerant” his liberal fans were of opposing viewpoints.  Ouch.

Obama’s creepy composite character, “Julia,” and her cradle-to-grave consumption of other people’s money should make even Liberals realize how ridiculous his government-will-solve-all-your-problems worldview is. But alas, discernment seems to be at an all-time low.

By her mid-twenties, Julia is a litigious member of the workforce suing for equal wages while hard working Americans subsidize her. She has her fatherless child and for twenty years drops off the map. That’s the most curious part — that and the fact that this paragon of Obama’s liberal America has no documented abortions and was not herself aborted.

James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal points out “[t]hat period includes the typical peak earning years–the time at which, assuming Julia is gainfully employed, she will be paying the biggest price for “Obama’s” generosity.” We know nothing of her time during those key years. Perhaps they were of little consequence because her whole adult working life was spent paying for the benefits of those who came after her.

That is the key. There is no mention of cost, no mention of debt, and no mention of tax burden for Julia. She receives everything and gives nothing. What is Julia’s fair share? In retirement, Barack Obama claims social security helps her live comfortably. Really? It boggles the mind.

This is Barack Obama’s vision of America — a welfare state from cradle to grave where parents and spouses are not needed because you have a federal government there for you the whole way from the delivery room to the death panel.

Here’s a good spoof (hat tip: Matthew from Facebook)

Plus this from Roxanne:

This blogger will note a few other telling problems with Julia’s life: no where does it mention where this money is coming from.  It assumes that social security will be available into the indefinite future, which is plainly erroneous. It also assumes that income-based repayment for college will exist throughout Julia’s life, which is also erroneous (explanation to follow shortly).  Julia has a sexy job as a web designer, but it never mentions that any old college major won’t qualify her for that job, nor does it say that she eschewed the liberal arts in favour of computer science.   Julia has a baby at age 31 but still needs more government help than my parents did when they were in their very early 20s. No where does Julia turn to charity, participate in charity or her community (except for a community garden, which is helpful only to those in her nice, middle-class area), go to church, or do many other things that normal Americans do.  It never said, “Julia’s Catholic Church shut itself down rather than pay for abortion drugs, so she was left to say her rosary at home.”  No mention is made of how Julia’s one child, and, by extension, everyone’s precious one baby, can pay for Social Security for their parents.

More reality from Roxanne as she nails the upside-down nature of Obamacare:

The only way that ObamaCare can control costs (and not reduce them, see above), is to ration care.  We’ll eventually all have “free” doctor’s visits but be denied life-saving treatment, which is the exact opposite result that you want for insurance, which is supposed to cover the really expensive things you can’t pay for yourself.  It would be like homeowner’s insurance that covers a leaky faucet for free but doesn’t give you a cent if your house burns down.

Some good pro-life news: Georgia becomes 6th state to protect pain-capable preborn children.  That’s progress, but even if someone doesn’t feel pain it is still immoral to kill her because she’s unwanted.  Pain-free killing is still killing.  If we really love our neighbors we’ll fight abortion.

The Left Got it Right: Let’s Drop the “I-Word”

So today, let’s acknowledge that words are indeed important. Let’s follow the lead of our friends on the progressive left. Let’s agree that “illegal alien” is inaccurate, insufficient, and possibly charged with interplanetary racism.

Today, let’s begin using the far more accurate and race-neutral term of criminal entrant.

Black Teen Run Off the Liberal Plantation — fascinating story about a teenager who dared to write about the similarities of slave-owner mentality and those who rule her schools.  Monopolists don’t like to give up their power!  Oddly, she hasn’t received a call from the President.

And see Rewriting History, where Stan exposes the many myths about which political party has really helped black people.

California apparently solved all their financial problems, so they are branching out.  Now the anti-choice zealots want to take away the rights of people who want to leave the LGBTQX lifestyles.  Stan has a good analysis.  Apparently all the stories of change from places like this must be lies, because the State of California said they couldn’t be true.

California bill targets consensual therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction — Just part of the activists’ ongoing SodoMonopoly plan, where religion, education, entertainment, government, media, medicine, counseling, foreign aid, etc. must be 100.0000% pro-LGBTQX or else .

General Electric: $14,000,000,000 in profits, 57,000 page tax return, zero taxes paid.

The sole purpose of corporate taxation is that it allows for Big Government “picking winners and losers,” as Paul Ryan puts it. Not even corporations that lack GE’s cozy relationship with the Obama Regime pay the taxes themselves; all costs are passed along to customers. In any case, the government’s main source of income is Ben Bernanke’s metaphorical printing press. The tax that actually produces the most revenue is inflation, a means of taxing every penny in your pocket.

The point of our tax code is to allow bureaucrats to “reward our friends and punish our enemies,” to use Obama’s phrase. Otherwise, corporations would devote their resources to hiring, cutting costs, and producing better products rather than to bribing the leeches in Washington.

“Attacked by tolerance.”  Not coming soon to the mainstream media near you.  These would be front-page “hate crimes” if done in the other direction.  I expect this hypocrisy from the pro-LGBTQX groups, but not from those claiming the name of Christ who aid, abet and encourage them.  I pray that they all repent and believe.

This is a great video by those upset that Obama is taking all the credit for killing Bin Laden.

Mary

From an email forwarded to me:

I bought this rosary before converting to Catholicism but at the time was feeling drawn to the faith but the Blessed Virgin. I was curious and felt drawn to her. There is a really lovely church next door with another very old relic – where I prayed one of the first times ever to Mary – for myself, my deceased mother and for my girls. I remember feeling a little odd at first, but yet somehow extremely comforted. It’s a long story, but anyway, I consider the place very special as it was one of the first times I reached out to Mary – from then on she seemed to reach out to me over and over and led me home to the Catholic Church. My story isn’t different than most I know, but its still miraculous to me when I consider all the turns in the road that led me to where I am – how they were clearly guided. The Blessed Mother did for us as so many others, led us to Her Son.

How sad.  I pray that this person and others trapped in this lie find the truth, and soon.  Mary was a great woman, but much of what the Catholic Church teaches about her is so wrong.  It puts her in the place of Jesus and of the Holy Spirit.

Praying to Mary or the saints just doesn’t compute for me. 

  • It implies that they are omniscient and can hear countless prayers all at once. 
  • Do you have to speak out loud, or can they read your thoughts?  Do they hear every conversation on the planet at once?
  • There is no Biblical justification or example for it.
  • Why go through a middle man?  We can go straight to God himself! 

1 Timothy 2:5-6 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time.

And she was not a perpetual virgin.  To imply that it would be desirable or necessary for her to remain a virgin betrays a perverted view of God’s plan for sexuality.  Sex inside marriage is a good thing. It would have been a sin for her not to have sex with Joseph.   

She is not to be worshipped.  Even angels wouldn’t let themselves be worshipped. 

What are your experiences with this kind of thing?
