The “black flag of jihad” as used by various Islamic terrorist organizations (since the late 1990s) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Our tolerant muslim friends tell us (when not engaged in dropping walls on homosexuals, or gang raping Western journalists), that Islam is the religion of peace,  that allah is a god of mercy and compassion, and muhammed was the greatest prophet.  I respectfully disagree, these are lies.

Islam is the greatest force of evil alive on the planet today.  It is the religion of the satanically controlled, and it is evident to everyone with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Of all the world religions, which ones advocate in scripture the taking of slaves, the oppression of women, and the murder of those who believe differently?  Take your time, but there’s only one.  islam.

Which religion of the world states that suicide is a good thing?

Which religion’s followers have a penchant for blowing up airplanes, themselves, and cowardly roadside IED’s because their god wants them to? (Which deity comes to mind when you imagine a being that approves of these actions?  The one I think of has horns.)

Which religion really likes beheadings on Youtube?

Which religion encourages fathers to kill their children if they are not pious enough?

Which religious adherents, while wearing blue jeans, and talking on their cell phones, loudly proclaim Israel and the United States (the two most powerful forces for world peace and prosperity in all of history) as the Lesser and Greater Satan?

In case any of these questions stumped you, the answer to all of them is islam.

Luckily though, our islamic friends are peaceful and tolerant.  Remember you don’t have to be beheaded or enslaved, you could always convert…

Islam the religion of pieces peace.

Some interesting articles from those who think Islam might not be a peaceful philosophy are listed below.

In February we FOIA-ed EPA for an explanation of why/how a report describing an illegal experiment exposing children to diesel exhaust was deleted from its data base. EPA responded to our request today.

The Weekly Standard has an article on Drudge about the recent death a of State Department employee in Afghanistan and how the official story has already changed.  This is reminiscent of the disaster in Benghazi (except no mock video to blame…yet), which is reminiscent of Fast and Furious.  I am noticing a pattern here.  Read the story at The Weekly Standard here: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/story-state-dept-employees-death-afghanistan-changes_716284.html

English: A cardboard ballot box used during the first federal vote in Washington. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It seems that the most common phrase I hear when discussing the state of our country is along the lines of “well what can I do about it?”, always accompanied with a shamed shoulder shrug and the slightly stale stench of chargrin.  It is infuriating, especially because I do not have an adequate response to give. So I propose we formulate a response as a community.  What CAN we do to defend our principles and our way of life?

 

1.  We vote with our every action.  Vote with your dollar, as well as at the ballot box.  Vote with your television remote and refrain from channels you oppose (not one cent of marketing money from my box to theirs!).  Look for Brand names that endorse what you endorse and buy them if even at more cost.  Boycott other companies with whom you disagree.  It’s called the Free Market, we should check it out before it is only a mention in the History books.

 

2. Write your governing authorities like a Chicagoan votes, early and often.  Let them know how you feel about things and what you would like to see happen.  Use things like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus to write open ended letters.

 

3. Write real physical letters in envelopes with stamps.  I am vaguely aware of this process that was once known as the “poe knee ixpris” and have read that it may still be used today.

 

4. Sponsor success.  Encourage and help reward those who are doing what you cannot.  A young man or woman who is responsible should be rewarded and helped upwards if at all possible.  Whatever authority you have in your life is yours to be wielded and well used.  Help out the next gen.

 

5. Develop a long memory.  Let nothing slide, from politicians, or from media sources and hold them accountable.

 

6. Phone calls and phone call campaigns, we need the gossip network to get engaged and show CNN a thing or two about how quickly news can be spread.  🙂

 

7. Church Church Church

 

8. Prayer Prayer Prayer

 

9. Fasting Fasting Fasting

 

10. Volunteer someplace you could be helpful.

 

Please post some more ideas if you have any.  I’ll add the ideas as we get them!

Betrayed in Benghazi

Below is a link to an open letter from 700 Special Forces Military Members to the House requesting the formation of a special investigative committee to ascertain what took place on September 11 2011 in Benghazi.  Please take the time to visit and read this letter.  Our troops deserve whatever protection we can afford them, and if the only thing we can do is click on links on the internet and write emails to our congresspeople then by God we should be doing it.

Now more than ever, this is appropriate to think about…

You propose to establish a social order based on the following tenets:that you’re incompetent to run your own life, but competent to run the lives of others-that you’re unfit to exist in freedom, but fit to become an omnipotent ruler-that you’re unable to earn your living by the use of your own intelligence, but able to judge politicians and to vote them into jobs of total power over arts you have never seen, over sciences you have never studied, over achievements of which you have no knowledge, over the gigantic industries where you, by your own definition of your capacity, would be unable successfully to fill the job of assistant greaser.

America is in danger on multiple fronts.  Our economy hangs precariously, backed only by the forgiveness of our enemies, and our ability to print money as fast as our greed allows.  We have spent the accumulated incomes of our children and grandchildren and still decry as a nation that we have no spending problem (only a failure to spend properly which is most definitely NOT a spending problem ).  We have active battlefields in several locations, escalating tensions in the Pacific and the Middle East, and deteriorating conditions domestically.  Our Western alliance of civilization is depreciating rapidly, and as we watch the EU, we know what to expect here in the United States.  Meanwhile we seek to speed up the pace on our hubris ridden and foolish path, choosing to accelerate ever faster in our outright defiance and contempt of natural law.  I’ve spewed out a horribly incomplete list of Orwellian fallacies that we are fighting against.  Basically I’m bored and too lazy to write something real…   🙂

We seem to be actively working to budget out of existence our parent’s and grandparent’s access to health care in the name of global and temporal “fairness” yet we do not realize that as we eliminate the old and we eliminate the young, all we have left is us, the society of infinite tweens (that will age into that hated category of old eventually).

We are told that a group of individuals can come together as a united entity and exercise political speech if they call themselves a Union and not a Corporation.

We are told that the “right to choose” is not to be violated, nor is it to be exercised  in choosing “what” to choose, be it school vouchers, concealed carry gun permits, gun registries, et cetera.

We harp about “politically correct” speech as we rescind the name of Jesus from public discourse and promote the name of Mohammed, change labels from positive to negative and from negative to positive (in the name of global and temporal “fairness” of course).  We actively seek extenuating circumstances to excuse us from our every misdeed.  Got a problem?  There’s a gene for that (and an app that will tell you how to find it), and a drug that will keep you from dealing with it, and a program that will help you to pay for it (literally and figuratively), and a politician that will call it a right for you.

We have a breakdown in logical thinking in this country.  We are told (via Main Stream Media, and Public Education) that capital punishment is wrong but abortion is right.  (Actions have no consequences right?)

We will allow you to commit murder for the sake of privacy (ie abortion), yet we will forsake all privacy to prevent murder (ie terrorism).

Scientists are skeptics but science is about consensus.

Racism can only be avoided by an unwavering focus on race.

The sexes are identical, there is nothing a man can do that a woman cannot, yet there are things that a woman can do that a man cannot, therefore they are identical.  (I’m still trying to figure this one out)

Christianity is a religion that teaches turning the other cheek, and love thy neighbor but is wrong because of its intolerance, bigotry and hatred.  While Islam teaches a person to enslave, or murder their neighbor and is promoted because it is a tolerant religion of peace and love.

A privately owned bank is too big to fail, but publicly owned debt is too small to succeed?

Gun laws will be followed by people breaking murder laws.

Enforcing current laws is too difficult, so we need to pass new more stringent laws, because they will be easier to enforce?

We are constantly shown how “edgy” it is to be a non-conformist and go along with the group to get even with “the man” by making sure that “the man” gets larger and stronger and more conformist.  We are told to fight conformity by adhering to a select group of viewpoints.  These viewpoints become politically “correct” and therefore inviolate.  A person opposing said viewpoint is guilty of emotionally disturbing or harming the protected class of thought, and is therefore nullified (regardless of their objective validity).

We are told that there is no absolute truth, which is in itself an absolute truth.  By stating that there is no absolute truth we have declared and demonstrated to the world at large that absolute truth must exist.

We seem to be constantly told that hell, 1.5 billion Chinese can’t be wrong.

This article will be updated and reposted as I gather information.  This topic is gaining traction in all 50 states because at its core it seeks to divide the parent from the child in all things educational.  It is a federal/global guideline established without oversight and being implented without parental discretion, while at the same time they change the FERPA laws to diminish child privacy rights and seek to monitor every aspect of our children in order to “help them” find their place in society.

http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards From the Common Core State Standards Initiative, this is a link to proposed new standards.

Common Core Curriculum is a new set of learning standards for kindergarten through high school that have been implemented with alarming speed and without proper oversight, and testing.  It is Federal in scope, and all 50 states will be using the same set of standards.

The Wikkipedia entry is linked here.

As I research I find myself more and more confounded.  What is the proper approach to education?  I have very little formal education myself, so I have no basis to argue statistics and studies which can be manipulated any which way.  I must rely on common sense, as I try and teach myself some of the history of the philosophy of education.  I keep coming back to the name John Dewey, and how he was pivotal in the formation of our modern education system.
