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.

A Hundred Years Later

Rev. Dr. Thomas DeWitt TalmageThe first century or so of America’s life saw the rise of a great number of very wise men and women who helped shape the character of the nation.

One of these wise men was one of the most prominent religious leaders in the United States at the time, Rev. Dr. Thomas Talmage, whose sermons were published in more than 3,000 journals, reaching in excess of 25 million readers.

One great gem of wisdom from Talmage was:

The American of 100 years from now is to be different from the American of today. German brain, Irish wit, French civility, Scotch firmness, English loyalty, Italian aesthetics, packed into one man, and he an American! It is this intermarriage of nationalities that is going to make the American nation the greatest nation of the ages.

— Rev. Dr. Talmage
“Before They Adjourn” (1896)

Sadly for us, this wisdom has been lost and assimilation in America is now deprecated by large swaths of the residents of our country. The Liberals and Progressives do not tolerate it, preferring to have foreigners stay foreign for generation after generation.

Then there is the relatively new problem of the “Black Community,” whose members, upon reading such wisdom, would rant,“Them’s all be White People! America is racist!”

Rev. Dr. Talmage described the America of his future. A hundred years later we’re living the consequences of his having been wrong due to his overly optimistic view of his countrymen and their progeny.

We’re All Doomed

As Thomas Gray penned some 270 years ago, “Where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise.” We’re all doomed, either by our own hands or those of others to read the wheel of fate, ever repeating our failures and losses.

We're all doomed
We’re All Doomed To Repeat History

You see, George Santayana was overly optimistic when he wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” He only got it half right. He didn’t understand that, more often than not, those who do remember the past are just as doomed – or more so, because they can see what is happening – as those blissfully ignorant masses who, en mass, are the only ones with the power to effect change.

So I shall follow the true wisdom of King Solomon and too commend joy, for man has no good thing under the sun but to eat and drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil through the days of his life that his God has given him under the sun.


The Universe spirals downward to dissolution while the Reaper sits by, drinking tea sweetened with dead stars.

1000 Words (NSFW)

The most common variant of Fred R. Barnard’s phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words” is certainly a truism. It’s also a damn fine thing at times…

1000 Words
A Picture Is Worth At Least A Thousand Words

Even better, it still holds true even when the words in question are in another language – German in this wonderful case – viewed reversed through a mirror.

Music Hath Charms

To quote the 17th Century playwright and poet, William Congreve, “Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast.”

Soothing The Savage Breast

Ah – those words spoken by the character, Princess Almeria of Granada which open The Mourning Bride have titillated people for centuries, lasting in our collective consciousness far longer than the play itself or it’s creator.
