True Lies

It's hard to believe it, but Nietzsche had it right. Not right when he proclaimed "God is dead," but right in that once God was "dead" (in the sense that people no longer believe in Him), then we are then "beyond good and evil." That is, without God, there is no absolute ground of ethics and morality. There is just power, and lying is just one way to get what you want. For the serious believer, truth is of the very nature of God, and thus precious. For the unbeliever, truth is a meaningless concept. The left is the side that has pretty much rejected God. It is not as if people on the right do not lie also. But on the left people do not consider the truth important as long as they get what they want. So lefties from Obozo on down lie and lie and lie, and their supporters excuse it. Because once God is out of the picture, all that matters are power and pleasure -- the gods of the left.

Bobby Jindal for President?

In what sense is Jindal a loser, seeing that he won the gov. of Louisiana? Or are you looking in a mirror as you type your comments?

Stealing From God

Why do people fight against God and want to eliminate Him from society? (1) The original reason: because people want to BE God, that is, be completely autonomous. The snake's temptation of the woman in the garden was, "You can be like God(s)." If there is a god, than I am not the center of the universe. (2) The common reason: because people hate the word "no." The religious traditions we are most familiar with (Judeo-Christian) have a highly moral God who keeps limiting people's self-indulgence with a whole passel of "Thou shalt nots." People want to be self-indulgent, so they fight against God and his "Thou shalt nots." I am sure there are other reasons, but I think those two are the main ones.

Blaming the Victims

tgwWhale Wrote: Feb 04, 2015 10:36 AM
The refusal to "blame the victim" is one of the results of accepting the (generally false) leftist creed that all problems are due to big guys picking on little guys -- oppressors oppressing the oppressed. The reality is that "victims" are often (not always) the ones to blame for their problems -- whether it is poor ghetto-dwellers who perpetuate the welfare culture of unwed births, unstable families, and high crime and chemical abuse, or whether it is Palestinians suffering because they seem to do little to better them selves and only attack Israel. It is completely, totally, right and justified to blame the victim when the victim is in fact at fault.
This is a real question: IF 2014 was the hottest year on record, where was it so hot? I ask this because where I live (NE WI) 2014 was the COLDEST year I can remember, averaging 3 degrees (F) BELOW normal. So 2014 was COLD, not warm, in the Upper Midwest. I would guess that most of the eastern 2/3 of the U.S. was colder than normal in 2014. So in order to get average temps up, it had to be really hot in other places. Does anyone know where 2014 was so hot? I find it odd that no claims of the "hottest year on record" tell us where it was so hot.
lois, you moron: The purpose of the Keystone XL is NOT to create jobs. Its purpose is to move oil more efficiently. When something is done more efficiently, the price drops. When the price of oil drops, the economy improves, as people have more money to spend on other stuff. Since the "stuff" you smoke is expensive, you should appreciate the extra money left over after you gas up your Prius. By your leftist standards the ideal would be to have a thousand-mile bucket brigade with two million full-time workers to carry the oil from the Canadian border to Texas. That would create the most jobs, wouldn't it? At least that's what leftist fools think.

Can Israel Survive?

Who cares? I would suggest that all human beings that are not evil care. I care if Iran and North Korea survive, too. And I don't like them at all.

How Much Is That Psychology Degree Worth?

At least medical care has improved immensely over those years. College education, on the other hand, is far worse off in spite of costing 10X more.

You don't see Dr. Sowell regularly on the national news because: (1) he's not a lefty; (2) if he did appear, he'd make all those lefties i the media look like idiots. Of course, they do a pretty good job of that by themselves.

'First They Came for the Jews'

tgwWhale Wrote: Jan 23, 2015 4:46 PM
The American left does not generally hate Jews -- after all, many of them ARE Jews. The American left generally hates the nation of Israel. For most of them this has little to do with reflexive antisemitism. Instead, it arises from their single moral belief: that they have to be always on the side of the "little guy." who is always poor and downtrodden because he (or she) is oppressed and exploited by some evil "big" guy. Because Israelis are generally educated and rich, and embrace Western culture, they are seen as the cause of the poverty and misery of the Palestinians. U.S. lefties therefore take the side of the Palestinians, and hate Israel. If they begin to hate Jews in general, it is likely a carry-over from their hatred of Israel. Note that I am not in any way saying that IN REALITY the misery of the Palestinians really is the fault of the Israelis. But if you are a prog, EVERYTHING is seen in terms of "oppressors" vs. "oppressed." So the misery of the Palestinians MUST be due to their being oppressed by evil rich Westerners, in that case, the Israelis.
