Each passing day finds me filled with deepening sadness and much melancholy as we all are forced to stand by,voiceless,while our elected representatives happily place the noose about their own necks over amnesty for tens of millions of illegal immigrants disguised as “immigration reform.”Their arguments about all the restrictions the bill imposes and how difficult the ‘path to citizenship’ would be is like so much water through your fingers.These illegals have no interest in becoming US citizens.They want the jobs and the free stuff.Once the democrats attain their majority,it is a short step to lock them in as another permanenet underclass of takers,sucking an already-overburdened system dry.I’ve had a sense this country would collapse from its excessive sin and corruption.I just never realized how quickly the end would come.Without a shot ever being fired.

Defending those without a voice

Defending those without a voice by Ron Futtrell – June 11, 2013 (excerpts)


I’ve seen many leftist comedians over the years in Las Vegas, most times they are fun and enjoyable, and they can even be entertaining. I enjoy listening to all sides, and working in newsrooms for many years allowed me to hear plenty of divergent opinions. It was in this spirit that I joined friends to see Bill Maher perform at The Pearl at The Palms on Saturday Night. I went with low expectations. I just didn’t know how low he would go.

You may recall the Republican candidate for vice-president in 2008, Sarah Palin has a special needs son. I have interviewed Palin about her son, and with a 27 year old special needs son of my own, we have a common bond. Politics aside, that bond is strong with all parents of special needs children. I drop off my son, Troy, at Opportunity Village in Las Vegas every day. It’s a work place for adults with special needs where they contribute to society. It is a marvelous charity and every time I am there I can feel the wonderful spirit of those who work within. Yes, I am passionate about this.

Maher chose to make a joke about Palin’s son, Trig and in the process he used the “R” word to describe this 5 year old special needs boy. Of course, since Trig is Palin’s son, he is a target of the left. Special needs be damned, there are jokes to be made by “caring compassionate” liberals. I was so disgusted and a bit surprised that I forgot the exact joke. Perhaps he saves this joke for live audiences only. The audience of more supposed compassionate, caring leftists loved the joke and roared with laughter.

The crowd reaction was perhaps the most disturbing part of all this, it also surprised me. While a joke about a 5 year old child with Down Syndrome is about as low as you can go, I don’t want comedians to be forced to be “politically correct” in their humor. Maher will say what he wants to say and he will always claim some sort of moral high road and friendly media will always give it to him. But I wonder if management at The Palms is comfortable with special needs children being used as targets for humor in their shows. Perhaps they are. So be it. They should be made to answer.

If Palms management is comfortable with joke like these, I will gladly never return to their property. I will also always be glad to stand up for those, who many times, have no voice.

Sarah used some language for this occasion as well.

George H.W. Bush is well known for his wonderful sense of humor and his love of funny socks. He celebrated his 89th birthday on Wednesday. Folks honored him with funny sock pics. These are my two favorites.

If you support Obama, you are not a Christian

Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) passed an amendment in the House Armed Services Committee protecting religious speech of service members in the military.

President Barack Obama says if it passes the full House and Senate, he will veto it.

In other words, Obama WANTS his appointees and officers free to dictate to chaplains what prayers, religious teachings and spiritual counseling they are permitted to offer and free to forbid soldiers from mentioning Jesus during a prayer or having a Bible on their desks.

No higher power

For four years Barack Obama has waged an unparalleled and largely undocumented by the mainstream media attack on the religious liberties of Christians in the United States. From cutting funding for religious schools to assaulting the Catholic Church, Obama has made his agenda clear.

Consider just one rich comparison. He left the words “endowed by their Creator” out of his speech when quoting the Declaration of Independence,  then ended a speech condemning all efforts to limit abortion in any way (by 42 states no less!) with “God bless you, Planned Parenthood.”

I’ve never come right out and said this before, but I think this latest public statement to veto any attempt to protect the religious freedom of military members makes it just over-the-top clear to me. If you support Obama, you are not a Christian.

You can call yourself whatever you want. It doesn’t mean God will recognize you at judgment. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.” Matthew 7:21

The real problem with moral relativism

DOG Black retriever with badminton birdie

There are two ways to ruin a game. The first is to add too many rules; the second is to eliminate all of them.

If a man were to sit me down for a one-legged, blindfolded game of chess in which pieces could only be moved according to the Fibonacci sequence, and the sides were switched every 17 moves, I might play a few moves before proposing we watch cat videos instead.

Worse though, would be if a man were to sit me down at a chessboard and say, “Let’s you and I do whatever we like. What’s right for you isn’t necessarily right for me.” I think I’d run straight to cat videos, no hesitation.

The most limiting cage in existence is woven by the lack of limitations, and it seems a rather obvious fact that the eradication of rules can only lead to the eradication of the game itself.

It makes you wonder why the Left is so intent on taking them away from us, doesn’t it?
