PETE’S PAGE; MONDAY EDITION

Posted by Pistol Pete

Had oldest daughter and her hubby and 4 kids over Saturday. It had been a long time since I had to feed young ‘uns. We ordered two x-large pizzas for supper,the four adults each had two pieces. The 4 chirrens,aged 8-12 descended on the rest like a swarm of grasshoppers in a wheat field. They left nothing but crumbs. DD said:’Try feeding this bunch every day.’ I politely begged off and gave thanks there’s just DW and I to worry about.

We have a big New Years Eve celebration planned: our annual steak dinner at a nice restaurant,no alcohol,home by 7:00 and in bed shortly after,since I work every morning. Then I will be left to ponder knowingly breaking the law for not signing up for O-care.I’m sure there’s other new laws I’m running afoul of. Oh,well.

There has been little news about Barry for over a week. When he says he doesn’t want to be disturbed while he’s kickin’ it,he don’t get disturbed. He’s just played a lot of golf and eaten food I could never afford. If something DID happen,he’d just put on a shirt and jacket,read some crap off the teleprompter and sound sincere and the media would swoon how he has such control over everything.

ICMYI — PHIL’S OK AGAIN

Posted by Pistol Pete

It’s times like this I wish I could pull quotes and put in bold type and all the other things CtH can do. I’ll just do the best I can.

A&E Lifts Phil Robertson’s Suspension; ‘Duck Dynasty’ To Resume Filming In Spring

Here’s their statement:

Our values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals.

That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the “coarse language” he used and the mis-interpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate.” We at A&E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.

But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A+E Networks also feel strongly about.

So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.

We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio.

Translation:we’re not about to throw away hundreds of millions of dollars to mollify a bunch of rump rangers.

Never satisfied,the jock-sniffers released their so-angry-I-could-just-spit response:

Text of GLAAD’s response: “Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”

Notice they had to include the Homies. Even though blacks could care less.
Human Rights Campaign assured ‘Duck Dynasty’ family will work with LGBT groups
THIS IS FROM TWITCHY; I WISH I COULD SHOW SOME OF THESE TWEETS… THEY’RE REALLY FUNNY. I’M INCLUDING LINK AT THE BOTTOM
DOES THIS GUY LOOK LIKE HE NEEDS SENSITIVITY TRAINING??

It didn’t take very long for A&E to find out that people of faith went way beyond the Bible belt. In any confrontation,it’s always paramount to know your opponent. The network never dreamed that the Robertsons would not hesitate to walk away from the show because money is not their sole motivating factor,as it is with most liberals. They also do not see that we’ve been mocked,ridiculed and demeaned for as long as we’re going to. The network may already have done irreparable harm to their brand after the ‘indefinite suspension’ of Phil Robertson which lasted all of 8 days.

The Left’s War on Children

December 27, 2013: A Houston federal court issued an injunction against the Obama Democrat HHS Mandate requiring employers to provide employees with abortion-causing drugs and devices. The ruling said the HHS Mandate – which Democrats drafted and Obama vigorously supports – violates federal civil rights laws. Altogether there are 89 lawsuits challenging the HHS Mandate. Twelve of the cases involving non-profit groups have been decided; nine have resulted in injunctions against the HHS Mandate.

1994: Mother Teresa of Calcutta at the National Prayer Breakfast

The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., on the first Thursday of February each year. It is hosted by members of Congress and typically has two special guest speakers: the President of the United States and a guest whose identity is kept confidential until that morning. In 1994, that president was the pro-abortion Democrat, Bill Clinton, and the guest was the pro-life Catholic, Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Text below begins at about 14:00.

“[I]f we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

“How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, her free time, to respect the life of her child.

“For the child is the greatest gift of God to the family because it has been created to love and to be loved. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble — so abortion just leads to more abortion.

“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love one another, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”
