I frequently come across comments on news articles that go something like this:
Commenter 1: The Bible clearly says that homosexuality is wrong.
Commenter 2: (In response to Commenter 1) But you eat shellfish don’t you?!?! You hypocrrrrrriiiiiitttttteeeee!!!!!
For the pathetically uninformed who try to pass this off as a legitimate argument (and no doubt consider themselves intellectually superior for pulling it out), let me explain why you’re wrong.
The liberals declared war on the dictionary many years ago and the war continues unabated.
It first started with redefining contraception to mean abortion. (For those of you confused as to why they aren’t the same, contraception PREVENTS conception. Abortion can ONLY occur after conception has occurred.)
They then moved on to marriage to define it as any two people regardless of sex (the revisions for number of participants, age and species are forthcoming).
Hate was next. It was redefined to simply disagreeing and thinking that someone was doing something wrong. (This one is particularly amusing because in accusing us of their definition of hate, they themselves engage in it since they are implicitly saying that we are doing something wrong. But the self-defeating nature of the redefinition eludes them.)
It’s opposite number, tolerance, was similarly redefined from putting up with behavior to requiring approval of the behavior.
The latest casualty in the War on the Dictionary is Continue reading
Today (7/6/2014), on Fox News Sunday, Mara Liasson stated that Democrats have to make the Hobby Lobby case about contraception and not religious freedom in order to get their base excited to vote in November and cited stats indicating that while married women voted for Romney in the last Presidential election more single women voted for President Obama (in large part due to the contrived ‘War on women’)
Here’s the facts: Continue reading
The real story about ‘climate change’ is being exposed here.
As of 1975, there was nearly unanimous consensus among experts that the first half of the 20th century was exceptionally warm, and that temperatures had plummeted after 1940. In fact, by the late 1960s, temperatures were colder than they were in 1900.
The National Academy of Sciences published this graph, showing that the late 1960’s were cooler than the turn of the 20th century.
From 1900 to 1950, there was dramatic retreat of ice in the Northern Hemisphere
POLAR ICE THAW INCREASING GLACIERS SAID TO BE MELTING
CLEVELAND, Feb. 16 (A.A.P.) Dr. William S. Carlson, an Arctic expert, said to-night that the Polar icecaps were melting at an astonishing and unexplained rate and were threatening to swamp seaports by raising the ocean levels.
The glaciers of Norway and Alaska are only half the size they were 50 years ago. The temperature around Spitsbergen has so modified that the sailing time has lengthened from three to eight months of the year,” he…

Any thinking person would recognize that the concept of ‘income equality’ in a free society is the equivalent of drawing a square circle. It is simply not possible.
The only way income can be made equal is through force that dictates that everyone receives the same amount regardless of their efforts, talents or contributions.
Despite the best wishes of progressives, people ARE NOT equal. Continue reading
Fascism is a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. 
It’s pretty common in American politics to imply that those on the American right are fascists. And it’s wrong and based on a false premise and a mis-understanding of the differences between the European right/left and the American right/left.
The problem is Continue reading
