Bastiat’s Conundrum

Claude-Frédéric Bastiat, a 19th Century economist and political philosopher of the French Liberal Schoolthink proto-libertarian – was more than a little concerned about society turning its back to what is good and embracing what it is evil.

When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe.

— Frédéric Bastiat
Economic Harmonies (1850 AD)

Not, of course that this is new thought or warning. It goes back to at least Biblical times.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20, The Bible (KJV)

But, inherent to these very thoughts and proscriptions in the conundrum. Who are the misguided of the public? Who, indeed, have chosen to call evil good, and good evil? When a society – truly, at this point more of a population than a society – cannot even agree upon what words mean, much less what are examples thereof, it becomes almost moot to try to decide this. And yet, from the standpoint of both utility and primal, existential need, decide this America must do.

Endorsed By Hamas

Though far-flung, hyperbolic in the extreme, and inaccurate in the specific, these guys still got it right in the larger context.

With a POTUS like him, who needs Jihadists?
Obama – Endorsed By Hamas

The only reason Hamas doesn’t endorse Obama is that they’re too stupid to realize that the boy’s the best, staunchest, and most powerful ally in their war to eradicate the Jews and Christians in Israel.

This, of course, begs two questions:

  1. How much are the words and deeds – or lack thereof – of a POTUS worth in a purely material sense?
  2. If that worth is set as greater than $0.00, why hasn’t the appropriate provisions of the NDAA been applied to Obama?

Face it; with a POTUS like Obama, who needs Jihadis? The boy is the epitome of “home grown” Muslim terrorism. Hellfire! The Obama Regime is a State Sponsor of Terrorism.

It’s Your Soul

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil
It’s Your Soul On The Line November 4th

My fellow Americans, the 2014 midterm elections are upon us. I urge you to vote – to vote against the evil that is the modern iteration of Liberalism, even if you can’t vote for the candidate who’s in the position to be arrayed against it. I urge this not only for the sake of our country and culture but for the sake of your very souls.

You will die and you will go before the God(s) for the judgement of your life. In no way, shape, or form do I believe for even an instant that your and my inactions will be weighed against us any less than our actions.

It’s your soul though. Do what you want with it.

The Duffer-in-Chief

More and more of late we see, read, and here much derision and rancor directed at Obama’s preference for recreation, especially golfing, over attempting to do his job as President of the United States of America and titular leader of the Free World.

Notwithstanding the fact that there’s a lot of truth in these assertions and complaints about Obama’s lack of involvement in his job, Americans really need to just stop with these reactionary complaints about the “semi-retired” nature of Obama’s presidency.

Duffer

Function: noun

Date: 1756

Definition(s):

  1. A) a peddler especially of cheap flashy articles
    B) something counterfeit or worthless
  2. an incompetent, ineffectual, or clumsy person; especially: a mediocre golfer

As Obama is most certainly, irrespective of which specific definition you choose, a duffer, it’s best for America and the American people if the boy just stays on the golf course.

Look at what Obama has tried to accomplish during his few forays into either domestic or foreign policy and look at what the effects of those efforts has been. Based upon this evidence there is no reasonably belief that anything that the Duffer-in-Chief did would be in the best interests of the American people. Why, this being the case, would any of us want him to spend less time on the links and more time doing the job of POTUS?

Don’t encourage the boy to work. Just let him do the job he was really hired to do – being the First Black POTUS and a token of “Post-Racial” America. Anything more is a clear and present danger to our country.

Good Muslims

In my rarely humble opinion, it’s a sad thing that the majority of people don’t believe that there’s any such thing as “Good Muslims.” This is patently untrue; both the world and history are filled with literally billions of good Muslims, Muslims who neither claim nor offense and who commit no acts of evil and/or savagery in their name of either their God or their Pedophile Prophet.

The World Is Filled With Good Muslims

It is simply the duty of Man to purge the evil and bring out the good in the Muslim population, not in the manner of war but in the manner of supporting the public health. 😉
