By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

Whereas a joint committee of both Houses of Congress has waited on the President of the United States and requested him to “recommend a day of public humiliation, prayer, and fasting to be observed by the people of the United States with religious solemnities and the offering of fervent supplications to Almighty God for the safety and welfare of these States, His blessings on their arms, and a speedy restoration of peace;” and

Whereas it is fit and becoming in all people at all times to acknowledge and revere the supreme government of God, to bow in humble submission to His chastisements, to confess and deplore their sins and transgressions in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to pray with all fervency and contrition for the pardon of their past offenses and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action; and

Whereas when our own beloved country, once, by the blessing of God, united, prosperous, and happy, is now afflicted with faction and civil war, it is peculiarly fit for us to recognize the hand of God in this terrible visitation, and in sorrowful remembrance of our own faults and crimes as a nation and as individuals to humble ourselves before Him and to pray for His mercy–to pray that we may be spared further punishment, though most justly deserved; that our arms may be blessed and made effectual for the reestablishment of law, order, and peace throughout the wide extent of our country; and that the inestimable boon of civil and religious liberty, earned under His guidance and blessing by the labors and sufferings of our fathers, may be restored in all its original excellence:

Therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do appoint the last Thursday in September next as a day of humiliation, prayer, and fasting for all the people of the nation. And I do earnestly recommend to all the people, and especially to all ministers and teachers of religion of all denominations and to all heads of families, to observe and keep that day according to their several creeds and modes of worship in all humility and with all religious solemnity, to the end that the united prayer of the nation may ascend to the Throne of Grace and bring down plentiful blessings upon our country.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed, this 12th day of August, A.D. 1861, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-sixth.

ABRAHAM LINCOLIN.

By the President:

WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State .

Do a little introspection. Were all Germans evil or were they just duped?

The Rio Norte Line

What follows is the reason that I wrote this:

There are two paths to communism, one of revolution and forced conversion and one of electoral and voluntary acceptance. We all know and recognize the first one. Think the Bolshevik Revolution of Russia in 1917. These tend to be violent and messy.

America is experiencing the second one. These tend to be quiet, gradual and voted in by the majority.

Each are equally as deadly.

We need a constant reminder that evil and tyranny can be elected, even without a majority vote:

Whenever U.S. officials wish to demonize someone, they inevitably compare him to Adolf Hitler. The message immediately resonates with people because everyone knows that Hitler was a brutal dictator.

But how many people know how Hitler actually became a dictator? My bet is, very few. I’d also bet that more than a few people would be surprised at how he pulled it off…

A 2 minute clip highlighting the absolute real world ignorance of the academic elite, those so open minded their brains have fallen out…

Right Punditry

A shocking video from a New Jersey campus debate hosted by Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) reveals public Montclair State University students booing their English professor Dr. Grover Furr, who adamantly denies any wrongdoing on behalf of communists throughout history.

A dangerous thoughtcriminal kept asking Professor Furr about the sufficient number of people who must be killed for communism to be successful: if killing 100 to 150 million people didn’t do it, then perhaps, a billion or two would be the ticket?

In the face of persistent questioning, Furr korrektly identified the student’s argument as “bullsh-t” because “Stalin did not commit one crime.” Furr also ingeniously invented the Current Truth that the United States has the lowest standard of living of any industrialized country and that everyone must have government healthcare.  here

And many thanks and prayers for ALL soldiers who have served this country AND their families.  Thank you and God bless you.

Incanto In Furnace by Daunting Allegory

Posted: November 11, 2012 in Poetry

Aeneas crept into the depths
of the underground, upright
he stepped
darkly
as dead roses pressed
and she wept
(Persephone)
in the pit
(indemnity)
where shadows slept
bellowing
as bellows sing
so readily
below those mourning bells that ring
burrowed
‘neath the death of Spring
borrowed
from the breath we breathe
burroughs
of departed greed
ennui ennui ennui I scream
wake up! this hell is not a dream
and all is eaten as it feeds
and everything is as it seems
and everything is vanity
as Ashteroth to Easter bleeds
calamitous insanity
the bedlam that Pandora breeds
and Neptune drowned himself in seas
abysmal king of dead seaweeds
the pit is dank and dark and deep
and filled with those of restless sleep
and as the riddle of the Sphinx
shows that time is entropy
just as chains are naught but links
our DNA, life’s tapestry
unweaves itself unto deceit
stranding us in furnace heat
like the Rich Man full of thirst
as is the last so was the first

The Left’s deffinition of science is something you can’t understand, but something Al Gore can…Go figure.

Watts Up With That?

People send me stuff.

Readers may recall this story: Al Gore denied film footage rights by an Australian filmmaker where Mr. Gore sought the broadcast rights to a “fire tornado” footage shot during a wildfire near Alice Springs Australia for use in his upcoming “dirty weather report” aka 24 hours of Tabloid Climatology™.

The Australian wrote about how the filmmaker said ‘no’ then:

============================================================

Al Gore denied firestorm footage | The Australian

A WEATHER expert has backed the stance of an Alice Springs filmmaker who refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore — to use in Mr Gore’s climate presentations — because the event was unrelated to climate change.

In an email exchange with Mr Gore’s office, Tangey said using the footage in a climate-change framework would be ‘deliberately deceptive’

“I am aware that you may have missed the reporting on the very…

In an oh so unsurprising reversal, the weak kneed and lilly-willed speaker of the house John Boehner said on Thursday that the repeal of Obamacare would no longer be his mission.  They will not repeal Obamacare, they never intended to.

The tax that is not a tax, that was passed by the Supreme Court illegally (a tax must originate in the house), under the farce of the interstate commerce…

Well, to put it bluntly, this is what you are looking forward to:
