Sunday Morning Thought

George Zimmerman has demonstrated the ability to make a valid moral decision in a crisis situation.

Barack Obama has consistently failed to do so.

Thought For The Weekend

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer have been banned from entering the United Kingdom for publishing the truth about Islam.

Censorship is the process of restricting information and thus the restriction of rational thought. Because rational thought is necessary for human life the restriction of information has a toxic effect on a person. The toxic effect could even be lethal.

The act of censorship reduces a person to the status of a mere animal. Something to controlled, used, abused, and ultimately to be killed.

The act of censorship is beyond moral toleration. It's time to censor the censors.

Solstice Weekend

I had a good weekend -- apart from a bit of writers block, a cooking accident (Two stitches on my left thumb and a tetanus shot), a tornado hitting the city of Minneapolis(And hitting the municipal water intake plant, water service was out for a few hours, one of my brothers who lives four blocks away had his power go out as well).

I also entered a urination contest with a few Christians on a comment thread on Pamela Geller's blog.

(http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/06/obama-sends-1000-us-troops-to-jordan.html).

In my opinion I appear to be holding my own on this.

Clearly the old pagan practice of dancing around a upturned rock while naked would not have helped.

On the plus side the view of the Full Moon at perigee from my apartment was dazzling.

Sunday Morning Thought

Acceptance of the fact that Reality is real is the foundation of knowledge.

To some people, particularly Christians, this is ignorance.

Friday Night.

We had serious problems with Dihydrogen Monoxide last night.

We had two thunderstorms rip through the Twin Cities area last night. The first one had high winds and a heavy downpour. Central Avenue and Monroe Street in NE Minneapolis were blocked by flooding under the railroad overpasses. The second thunderstorm included a tornado that crossed North Minneapolis and hit the city water intake plant. Water service was out for several hours.

Oh, and I cut my left thumb while slicing potatoes and had to go to the ER at HCMC for two stitches and a tetanus shot. Because Central Avenue had been blocked I had to walk over to Jefferson Street and cross under the railroad bridge at 19th Avenue, which was not flooded, in order to return home.

Time for a pizza.

Response

At Pamela Geller's blog (Atlas Shrugs 2000) she posted the following letter from a Muslim:

Dear Pamela Geller

As a British muslim, I am shocked at how America have suddenly surrendered to the Taliban. The Taliban whom you demonised so vigorously in the media, who you claimed to have defeated in 2001, now, 12 years later you want to talk peace with them? Its laughable. The Taliban have simply given the Americans more then a bloody nose, but a humiliating ass whupping, which is what this is. The mighty Americans have been brought to their knees by the Afghan Taliban, so much so that the americans are now running from the battlefield with their tails between their legs, and begging the Taliban to talk. Its hilarious to see America in this desperate position. This is a surrender in every sense and the muslim world and the rest of the world sees this as a surrender. The Taliban now have offices in other countries, who would have thought this possible in 2002? or 03, or 04, or 05 etc?

America just accept defeat graciously. The rag tag army of the Taliban have defeated the technically superior US army and its allies. This is a major humiliation for you guys. but fantastic entertainment for all those who oppose Americas war mongering.

America has been defeated by Islam.

I just posted this response:

"America has been defeated by Islam."

Nonsense.

The fact of the matter is that the worst enemy of a nation and the armed forces of a nation is the government itself. The fact of the matter is that governing class in general decided to treat what should have been a total war as if it were a fight between street gangs.

We are losing what is in fact the Third World War because the rulers refuse to identify it as such. And that the cause of liberty is in fact a holy cause. We are in fact in a holy war.

One does not prevail in a holy war by pretending that the opposing faith is in fact valid. We can only prevail if we correctly expose the falsehoods for which the enemy is fighting. By treating their doctrine as false. And by systematically destroying their ideological infrastructure of indoctrination and enforcement. Destroy their texts and temples. And eliminate their enforcers and and indoctrinators.

Today

I was just awakened from my afternoon nap by a marching band.

Why?

Thought For The Day

Smugness is no substitute for understanding the truth.

Request

The lives of good Americans will be sacrificed in the fictional nation of Syria so that President Barack Obama can pretend to be a savior.

President Obama is intervening the local equivalent of a street fight between the Sturmabteilung and the Schutzstaffel. This is full altruism. This does not serve any rational national interest. And this is an absolutely useless act.

May we have a Coup D'Etat in the United States please?

Anniversary

On this day in 1944 the Austrian Corporal and his followers had a really bad day.

Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved.
