Just Because.......

I feel like belaboring the obvious....

"The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”
He added, 'They hate Western civilization at the core. That's the problem.'
After asserting that Christianity had not shown any “aggression” to the Muslim world, the former Pennsylvania senator — who is considering a 2012 run for the White House — argued that American intervention in the Middle East helps promote 'core American values.'
'What I'm talking about is onward American soldiers,' he said. 'What we're talking about are core American values. ‘All men are created equal' — that's a Christian value, but it's an American value.'
'It's become part of our national religion, if you will,' he continued. “The point I was trying to make was that the national faith, the national ideal, is rooted in the Christian ideal — in the Judeo-Christian concept of the person.”

...... yup, human equality is a concept that only Christian Americans are good enough to understand, and we therefore have the duty to force others to submit to equality. So, something about 1984 here of course. Man that guy sure Orwelled the everOrwellian fuck out of that Orwell shit by Orwell, how's that?

I felt like belaboring the obvious, like I said. And to belabor it further it must be said that anyone who reads history with a mind towards deciding which side in a conflict comes closest to qualifying as 'us', and then loyally deciding that they were in the right, is not reading history.

And this takes us back to my sabbath post from yesterday, because it is by viewing absolutely every mental exercise as a test of loyalty, of where you stand, that one comes to believe such bloody drivel. Dry is not wet, black is not white, equality is not a force seeking physical supremacy. But Rick Santorum and his ilk or unable to imagine any moral ideal, (or anything at all for that matter) existing in any other essence except that of a force seeking supremacy. So naturally his idea of, not just what he personally feels is right mind you, but his unquestionable knowledge of what is right for all and must if necessary be forced upon the wayward; well, it's just really fucked up isn't it?

It may well be that all of us save saints and coma victims have both the desire to be good and also somewhere within ourselves the desire for complete life-or-death control over others. These two desire contradict each other. To convince yourself that they can ever be rectified is to twist your sense of reality apart like a wet bag. You already knew this, and you'll actually maintain much more dignity in the end if you accept it.

Riffing on 'Man Was Made for The Sabbath'

"Put me down as believing that any theory of moral action that privileges one particular set of rights or goods lexicographically -- i.e., "based on absolute respect for certain rights" and not for other rights or duties -- above all others is, ipso facto, insane.
Sane thinking starts with taking people as ends in themselves and not as means to ideological purity.
Was the Sabbath made for humanity or was humanity made for the Sabbath?"
- Fred Taylor

Taylor's post was in turn inspired by an essay from more libertarian-than-you Sasha Volokh, who brought a satirical 'Onion' article to real life by stating that, yes, as taxes are in fact so God-damned evil that it would be better to let humanity be squashed by an asteroid than to pay for the asteroids' destruction with public money. Obviously this assertion is insane, one of thousands of insane, stupid, and downright evil conclusions that certain people reach every day in the name of internal consistency or True Belief.

And why do we have this tendency to put principle before people, to insist that Man was made for the Sabbath? I think the ultimate explanation for this mindset is that is one of several ways of lying to ourselves that Morality; our response to the soft, vulnerable love we feel for our fellow mortals, can be transformed into Duty, a rock-strong display of masculine courage.

It is a mindset that is by nature belligerent and destructive . When Man is made for the Sabbath then beliefs and opinions become flags. Opinions do not exist for the primary purpose of understanding humanity's problems and interpreting truth, but to display that one is brave enough to have opinions. Tolerance for opposing beliefs is impossible when showing off ones' willingness to fight for his beliefs is seen as the entire point of having them. Violence and social decay are unavoidable when a significant part of the population come to see the ultimate goal of their beliefs to not be their application towards solving practical problems or providing existential comfort but the attainment of physical power and sporting Victory.

The madness of ideological purity (As well as the mad insistence that this is the only form of moral honesty) is something else that becomes unavoidable whenever principle comes before people. The idea that there is any such thing as a pure or corrupted way, a brave or cowardly way, to neurologically process data and draw conclusions should be self-evidently absurd. But when Man is made for the sabbath it becomes essential to believe this nonsense. This is how every question tangentially related to firearms can come to be seen as a test of either absolute support for or absolute enmity towards private gun ownership; how every question tangentially related to taxes, economics, or labor becomes a test of either absolute belief in or absolute rejection of the free market. Just as Man does not live for his own sake, but for the sabbath, so it is that thought does not exist for its own sake, but only ever as a challenge to where you stand.

Simply adhere to the Sabbath always, spend your entire waking life proving your loyalty to it again and again and again, accept that people are less important then the sabbath and that whatever pain you bring them is justified in some way to be determined later. Do this and you will always be stronger and more correct then those children on the outside who must submit to your wisdom. Do this and your soul will be invincible.

So Anyway, Here's This.

They see it as their Christian duty. But others disagree, saying it extends the hand of fellowship where it was never intended to go.

Two Protestant churches are taking some heat from critics for opening their church buildings to Muslims needing places to worship because their own facilities were either too small, or under construction.

Heartsong Church in Cordova, Tenn., let members of the Memphis Islamic Center hold Ramadan prayers there last September. And Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Va., allows the Islamic Circle of North America to hold regular Friday prayers in their building while their new mosque is being built.

Diane Bechtol of Aldersgate says this is something Christians are called to do: Be neighborly and develop relationships - even those who don't share your beliefs.

"I think it's a tenet of our Christian faith, and that is that we extend hospitality to the stranger,” said Bechtol. “We are a congregation that wants to be helpful to people and if we are asked to help a neighbor in need, that's what we do."

The U.S. Christian community is divided over whether or not to allow Muslims to use their churches as prayer space -- something that two Protestant churches have already done.

The U.S. Christian community is divided over whether or not to allow Muslims to use their churches as prayer space -- something that two Protestant churches have already done.

But Dr. Alex McFarland, a Christian theologian and radio talk show host, charged these churches “have crossed the line from respect and tolerance, to ... affirmation and endorsement.

"We as the church are called to show love, we're called to help. But to let a building simultaneously be used for the activities of a mosque and also the activities of Jesus Christ, it's just incompatible. And I think it's one more example of political correctness and hyper-tolerance gone awry."

Further examples of hyper-tolerance and political correctness gone awry may include....

"He entered Jericho and was passing through. And there was a man named Zacchae'us; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchae'us, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." And Zacchae'us stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold." And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost." ( Luke 19:1-10)

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Further examples of righteous men bravely protecting their Godly culture from corruption may include.....

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
“Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. [14] [b]
15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? 18 You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. 22 And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.
23 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.
29 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30 And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? 34 Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. 35 And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.
37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. 38 Look, your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’[c]”

Oh, and Dr. McFarland?....

But McFarland says it's good to remember the "political ramifications" of Muslim-Christian interaction.
"What if we went to Muslims and said 'Hey, can we use your mosque for the worship of Jesus, the incarnate son of God, the one that said 'no one comes to the Father but through him.' I doubt there would be a lot of reciprocity’."

Far be it for me now to suggest that a White Protestant Man is capable of being wrong but ummm, you maybe didn't hear about this?

You Know, I Can Get Pretty Olive-complexioned Myself in The Summer

And my late Grandpa, the old farmer, spent his life in the sun, you never would have guessed he was European until winter came around.

Speaking in favor of repealing the law, Rep. Connie O’Brien (R-KS) began telling an anecdote at the hearing about how her son had difficulty in getting financial assistance to attend college. She explained that she took her son to a financial aid office, and as she was waiting in line, she believed there was a girl waiting in line with them who was “not originally from this country.” Fellow committee member Rep. Sean Gatewood (D-KS) asked O’Brien how she knew this student was “illegal.” O’Brien replied that she knew because the student “wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion”:

REP. O’BRIEN: My son who’s a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn’t qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid. My son was kinda upset about it because he works and pays for his own schooling and his books and everything and he didn’t think that was fair. We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was, we didn’t think that was proper. But we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country.

Connie O'Brian's verbal boner reveals the 'illegal means illegal' cry for what it so obviously is; a spoiled toddler screaming that it's just not fair, but since the cry is made by White adults who imagine themselves to be the natural ruling class of God's own Empire, the cry of 'it's not fair' must be made in a paternalistic, moralizing tone.

And of course they have nothing against legal immigration, no of course not. It's only those who break the law that they object to, of course. And how are they able to tell who's legal and whose illegal? Why, assimilation, don't you know. The legal ones are the ones who submit to an imaginary standard, concrete American culture, the WASPness of which being purely coincidental, since it is after all no more our choice than it is theirs to bow down to the eternally unchanging 100% Americanism. Legal immigrants speak perfect unaccented English within days of getting here, never watch soccer, and prefer Taylor Swift to Los Tigres de Norte.

If, on the other hand, you see two poor-looking fellows speaking Spanish in private conversation, there is no question that they are illegals. You can tell because if they really knew English they would know that it's the real language and would never speak their so-called mother tongues again even amongst each other. Why these devils would even start cumming in English if they only loved America enough to will themselves to learn it. and even if they do know English and still choose for whatever reason to speak their gutter tongue to each other, well, that won't do either. One needs to act American in public you know. It is essential to national security that everyone at the K-mart checkout line discuss their sister-in-laws ass in a uniform language.

And of course it's an outrage that their children should receive aid for college. Are we supposed to consider them innocent? Nobody made them break our laws just because their parents did. There's always a market for shoe shiners and prepubescent hookers down south. Nothing prevented these rats from staying in their own homes and supporting themselves.

Sarcasm aside though, exactly how many in the recent Latin wave to the Great Plains are illegal immigrants? The answer is as many as we can bring ourselves to imagine are so, by whatever available pretext, because again it comes down to 'it's not fair.' Because The loss of White demographic dominance, (and the loss of social dominance that must very soon follow from that, no matter how much legal brutality is dished out to the newcomers in however many statehouses.) is seen as illegitimate in itself. It simply can't be natural that we would ever lose control. There simply must be some menacing force behind it, some conspiracy, some malevolence. This is our country, this is our world, everything we see was personally made for us. This can't be happening. It's not fair.

There's This Spot

Just outside of North Platte, behind Buffalo Bill's ranch and the Wild West Arena, if you know where those are, northwest side. The spot is called Buttsex Bridge, at least by me. Whether anyone else calls it that or not, I doubt it, because I've never told anyone that I call it that, except maybe an old girlfriend this one time, but it's more likely that whoever happens to read this will be the first ones I've told.

I named it after graffiti that someone tagged on an oil tank next to a creek bridge. It said 'buttsex'. For the longest time thought it said 'bullsex' because of a company sign partially covered the phrase. No trespassing would be my guess, I never read it. You may think that the phrase 'bullsex' must necessarily to either bestiality betweeen humans and bulls or homosexuality among cattle but that isn't so. The truth is that all mammals masturbate. If you're wondering about the ones who don't have hands, which is most of them of course, well they have their ways. Porcupines will fuck gaps between rocks or twigs. A buck that can't get lucky during mating season can actually bend its dick backwards and get off on its own thighs. I saw it on Discovery. I imagine that bulls do something similar to one or the other. They rape calves too, just as likely their own as not since male cattle don't recognize kin.

They cleaned up the 'buttsex tag' several years ago. I smoked weed there many a time. Still do once every year or so, when I'm home for this or that. Next to the road bridge there's a bridge carrying a canal over a creek. It feeds North Platte River water to the farms between the rivers and North Platte and Hershey. Ungodly filthy water in that canal. A friend of mine fell into it once and got a rash on his calves that ate the top three layers of skin off. But he's a jackass and brings these things on himself.

Disney's Gulag Archipelago

Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and other’s eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. That was how the agents of the Inquisition fortified their wills: by invoking Christianity; the conquerors of foreign lands, by extolling the grandeur of their Motherland; the colonizers, by civilization; the Nazis by race; and the Jacobins (early and late), by equality, brotherhood, and the happiness of future generations.

Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be denied, nor passed over, nor suppressed. How, then, do we dare insist that evildoers do not exist? And who was it that destroyed these millions? Without evildoers there would have been no Archipelago.

Well The Sun is Out

Weak-ass pale winter sunlight that bounces off of the snow stronger than it actually signs. Still it's a first step. I've been thinking of the phrase 'dead of winter', what would make a good quasi-objective definition of the term. Well, let's say that the 'winter season', if not winter proper, begins with the first solidish precipitation of the fall, be it snow, sleet or whatever. The 'Dead of Winter' then begins on the first day where the daytime high is below twenty degrees Fahrenheit and ends on the last night that drops into single digits Fahrenheit. How's that?

I read the NYT article last week about the jet streams unusually dramatic dip to the south explains why the last two American winters have been unusually harsh, at least by modern standards. I remember that in my childhood and youth Nebraska winters were simply not that bad. 'Alberta clippers', those northern blast-fronts we've been constatly bombarded with since the week before Christmas, were once-a-season rarities. There were only five or six days out of the whole year that were truly bone-cold: Usually it was merely chilly, somewhere in the twenties or thirties, nothing that one couldn't be perfectly comfortable in as long as he had his gloves wool hat and the rest, and even this was broken up by frequent southern thaws pushing temps up into the fifties or sixties.

This shit right here fucking sucks, is what I'm trying to say. But it will be back into the lower thirties this weekend. It's February now and maybe this will be the last time it drops very far below that. Maybe this is the last week of the dead of winter. Or maybe not.
