On This, The Feast of Death & Unclean Spirits

"I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me." ~Psalm 101:3

"Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties." ~Psalm 141:4

The War on Teddy Bears

"The CPSC’s Resale Round-up initiative is targeting those of us who make toys, and other products, available to children they might consider to be toxic. We, according to CPSC chair-lady Inez Tenenbaum, '… are not only breaking the law, [we] are putting children’s lives at risk.'"

You know how civil servants often hand little teddy bears to children who were witness to fire or violent crime in an attempt to calm them? They sometimes say, "I need you to do something for me. I have this little bear here who doesn't have a name, could you name him for me and give him a home?" It gives the kids something to get their minds off of whatever may be troubling them.

Well, now Congress has reared its filthy head and decided to declare war on teddy bears via recall laws; the same ones that can slap you with up to fifteen million dollars ($15,000,000) in fines for selling a toy at a garage sale that has been recalled due to high levels of lead or something. Seems some teddy bears have been dipping into the lead paint a bit too much for the government to allow them to be distributed to terrorized tots, and sweeping new regulations and guidelines are leading one Wisconsin police department to switch to handing out a passel of books to the frightened toddlers, instead of the death-dealing bears.

Mmm, books to calm a three year-old... brilliant! Why hasn't anyone else thought of that? Maybe have them read one of Orwell's classics? Some Dickens, mayhap?

So, get yourselves in the mindset, these evil bears (Ursidae Fuzzius Cuddliae) have been terrorizing children for far too long. They hate our way of life, and wish to impose their regime of fluffiness and cuddly oppression via radical jihad and hugs. Not all teddy bears are radical, however, as some are merely seeking the American dream. But we will uncover and prosecute the radicals, whether they are hiding in caves or are tenderly tucked under a pillow.

If they are willing to come to the negotiating table, we are waiting. We will extend a hand, if they are willing to unclench their furry fist.

To nations everywhere, I say, you are either with us, or you are with the teddy bears.

Comments on Modern Interpretations of the Separation of Church and State

From WorldNetDaily:
"OK for 63 years, now Jesus in manger gets dumped

Privately sponsored scene victim of 'separation of church, state'"

"John Satawa's family has displayed a nativity scene on a street median in Warren, Mich., virtually every Christmas season since 1945, but following an intimidating letter sent by the Freedom from Religion Foundation, Satawa's county has put stop to the 63-year-old tradition.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation proclaims its purpose in the letter to the Road Commission of Macomb County was to 'protect the fundamental constitutional principle of separation of church and state.'"

I hate to break it to you, WND and friends, but Jesus didn't get dumped out of the manger, as Jesus wasn't on the median in Michigan. That was a fake. Not real.

And I hate to break it to you, Freedom from Religion Foundation, you don't have the Constitutional point you think you do. Close, but no cigar... or whatever it is you've been smoking.

Firstly, I don't see the big deal about Jesus being a baby, anyway. Oddly, "Baby Jesus" has much more importance and appeal than the "Son of God" in our culture. This is probably due to the baubles and toys associated with the statuettes of unclothed children in December, as opposed to that whole "eternal life" and morality deal with the actual Jesus Christ. Who wants that? *raises hand*

So, the idea of "nativity scenes" has me scratching my Xmas-bashing noggin, but it was a free country, so you can do whatever you want.

The other side of this is the FRF's point about a separation of church and state, the ideology of which, in its original sense, I strongly agree. Now, these people seem to think the First Amendment, which states, in part, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...," somehow becomes, "No person is allowed to freely exercise their religion in public."

While I don't see how putting a nativity scene in public is exercising one's religion, I also don't see how it harms anyone, unless the case is made that it is an obstruction, distraction, etc.

The First Amendment really applies nowhere here, in my opinion.

This is different from my opinion concerning, say, public prayer, which is absolutely protected, even if the act is being done by a civil servant. No matter what religion, including that of Secularism, there can be no Congressional law abridging or preferring it. Congress is to abstain from all matters regarding religion.

Under the 10th Amendment, the door is open for decisions by governments both state and local, or by the people. Being a member of the latter group, in the event of a Muslim exercising his right to pray publicly, I would use my right to free speech to discuss and argue my points concerning the fallibility of his religion, and promote my own. No federal court case needed.

Obama Declares Non-Issue of H1N1 to be "National Emergency"

I ask the thinking, reasoning, and thoughtful mind God created within your brain to consider why a virus, which infects the body with a potency little more than a really nasty cold, and which has been responsible for fewer deaths than the vaccine which "protects" against it, could possibly be considered a "national emergency"?

Is that reasonable?

Consider that H1N1 was held responsible for the 1976 death of a Fort Dix army recruit, and Congress launched a mass vaccination program to stop a pandemic from occuring. Twenty-five times more people died from the vaccine than the flu, and there were 500 reported cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing, auto-immune response to acute infection, due to the vaccine. A massive media blitz on propagandizing the people succeeded in vaccinating 24% of the population.

Later, Congress passed the National Emergencies Act, granting special powers to the executive office during a declared emergency, and which specifically suspends the right to Habeas Corpus for the plebians and eliminates the right to a Grand Jury for National Guardsmen.

In 2007, George W. Bush signed Executive Directive 51, a highly classified document which has only been revealed to Congress in-part and greatly expands the powers of the federal government over state and local governments to such a degree that they won't even allow Congress to know how far reaching it truly is.

A "national emergency", as currently defined by the federal government, means, "...Any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

Who determines what is a "severe affect"? The President of the United States.

"Thanks, Bush. You're the best we ever had."

Since Quasi-President Obama has decided to throw his executive weight around by declaring a mild virus to be a national emergency, we can either expect whatever measures he and his administration deem necessary to "keep us safe" on a hair-trigger for the next several months, or we'll wind-up waiting for another minor event before he unleashes his plan of action.

What can we expect this plan to be? I don't know, but probably a lot of federal control of local infrastructures and law enforcement. Only time will tell what these dastards will do.

"Balloon Boy" Hoax

Can we say "poorly composed publicity stunt"?

If you hadn't heard, the kid was supposedly in a giant, runaway balloon in Colorado, getting much media attention as the rescue teams were out in force; he turned out to be in the attic of the garage, "hiding". Lots of photo shoots and interviews for the attention-driven family, eh?

Oh, Falcon, what a thrashing thou shalt receive for revealing thy father's deceit on live television!

Ooh, Falcon's not the only one squirming!

At the end, Wolf basically says, "You got our attention, you got what you want, thanks for pranking us."

The Czar-Mangled Banner

Ugly, but legal.

World Net Daily has posted on this story about these flags being sold on eBay, pondering the possible legal action for defacing the flag, but it is fruitless.

First off, the U.S. Flag Code is one of the few federal laws that really is a suggestion. There is no penalty for violations of the code, save for a few state or local ordinances, which usually include fines.

Here's the deal: if the people making these flags are manufacturing them themselves, instead of buying the flags and silk-screening Herr Obama's face on the canton, then there is no violation; if it don't have fifty stars, it ain't a U.S. flag, and is thus exempt from the restrictions of the code.

It's a whole other story if they are truly defacing U.S. flags, but like I said, the penalties would be subject to the local law enforcement's discretion.

The dimensions of the flag are also important. The flag pictured, I would hazard to guess, is about 3:5 and the U.S. flag is defined as being 10:19; that, too, is important.

What would it mean if one flew that flag upside-down, I wonder...

Noble Peace Prize

I suppose you've all heard the news!

I have been awarded the Noble Peace Prize for my efforts to end hunger in Antarctica. Since my "Meals without Seals" campaign began in 1999, there are now millions fewer hungry Antarctican children, who would otherwise be eating seal everyday of their lives.

I want to thank my parents and my dog, without whose efforts I could not have helped anyone.

I thank you all!

(Notice: Son3 didn't win anything, because he didn't actually give sealess meals to Antarctican children, as there are no children in Antarctica, just a few, adventurous scientists. There is also no such thing as a "Noble Peace Prize"; he made it up. Obama did nothing to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Not that I lend any credence to the Nobel Peace Prize. I think he should have gotten the Goober Peas Prize, because that sounds funnier.)

Swine Flu Shot: 99% Snake Oil

I make it a point to avoid posting as little profanity or impolite language as possible. I know that sort of thing doesn't bother many people, but it bothers me, and I feel responsible for anything I put on my blog.

That said, the following video contains a "looped" clip which contains the brief phrase, "Just get your d--- vaccine!" This is replayed continuously throughout the video. I post this video regardless of this, as the information it otherwise holds is invaluable for anyone considering a swine flu shot.

This video contains an interview with Kathleen Sebelius (that's "seb-EEL-ee-us", not "sebel-I-us"), who was Governor of Kansas for as long as I've lived here until she was appointed HHS Secretary by Obama.

Her reptilian face continues to disgust me.
