The Great Disconnect

This is like finding Waldo. Can you find the problem?

First Directive – You must verify that a person is a legal resident of the United States and has the necessary paperwork allowing them to work in the country before you pay them to cut your grass. This seems reasonable to me. I want people to be here legally. I do think it can be a more cumbersome process than necessary, but the issue of being here legally is an important one.

Second Directive – The State may not ask a person about their legal residency status before they give them welfare, medical treatment, driver’s license or anything else. This does not seem reasonable to me. I think the government has the same responsibility to follow the law that I do.

Let's boil this down to a simple one v one:

I cannot pay an illegal alien to cut my grass; on the other hand, the State takes money from me at the point of a gun to pay illegal aliens.

Being the State has its privileges, doesn’t it? Abuse under color of authority is a egregious crime.

I cannot pay for an illegal alien, so if they need money, they go to the State who can pay them, but only if they do not work.

Do you still wonder why we have a budget deficit?

Our government has a mental illness called liberalism.

The Three Choices of Islam

Islam or Mohamedism is very clear on its only choices for non-believers:

• Convert
• Pay tribute to live
• Die

The Islamofacists have a particular distaste for Christians and Jews. There are people who claim to follow Islam, who in reality are like many who claim to be Christians. They like the bullet points of the religion (at least those they agree with) and are willing to ignore the points they do not like, or find inconvenient. Those are the public wine drinkers (for Islam). They are not a problem in their religious mode. In the secular mode, they can be as much or as little trouble as the next person.

True followers of Mo Hamed are a major problem. They do not have the same value structure that Christians and Jews share:

They follow a man, not a god.
We follow God at the direction of the Son of God.
They praise "Allah", but follow Mo Hamed.
We praise God and at His Son's direction pray to Him and follow Him only.
Their kingdom is intended to be here on earth.
Ours is not of this world.
They want all government to follow their rules, sharia.
We are told to respect civil authority, to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's.
They are told to overthrow all governments who will not follow their rules.
We are told to pray for the civil rulers.

It is no coincidence the evil Klingon Empire and the CS Lewis Tash people were based on Islam.

This new fellow in Iran is particularly troublesome in a worldly sense. He believes it is time for Ragnarok (the Viking Final Battle). He is working on developing nuclear weapons with the stated purpose of leveling Israel. This is what he is saying on the open world forum, his internal communications are far more inflammatory. Frankly, I am far more concerned near time that he will be able to buy some of the former Soviet nuclear weapons, of which there are hundreds, if not thousands unaccounted for.

If you do not see the conflict, one can only say, "There are none so blind as those who will not see."

It is also good to be prepared for the end of the world at a moment's notice. For our personal world can end at any time and we face our Lord at the Final Sorting Hat.
