A group of maybe 50-60 or Sharpton slugs/bacteria shambled and screamed past my window last night. They were walking west on Houston when allegedly the march was north to south to Police HQ?

Well, I'm an impertinent asshole, FS, so my response would be along the lines of "why aren't we traveling to Chicago to pray for all the black kids killed by their peeps? Don't their lives count? Or do we only pray when it benefits race pimps?"

But that's me.

Honestly, I don't know what you should do. My only advice, for what it's worth, is that you don't let the fear of being called "racist!" stop you from expressing your true beliefs. I can understand that you don't want to piss off your supervisor, but at some point we're all going to have that moment of "do I stay silent and let this pass or speak up for what I believe?"

Of course, it's easy for me to say that behind the keys of my computer. You have to do what is best for you. I'll keep you in my prayers.

This is the socially brainwashed state of mind in which the hatemongers thrive.

The lies will not yield easily, and as you note, the tarbrush is always at the ready. At best, one might ask an innocent-seeming informed question. But only one.

No, but seriously, that thing manages to be both phallic itself, and suggestive of HER being the phallus, and the hat being the receiving end (end suggesting it could go either way).

This is exactly what the woman interviewed by Nolte regarding the Lena Dunham incident at the school. She said it doesn't matter if she was lying about a man that raped her, we should focus on the "victim." Jaw dropping as well.

Facts don't matter, only emotions to these people, and "social justice" agendas.

It's sick, and getting worse. This is truly what indoctrination and brainwashing looks like.

It's not like I have to go. The invitation was expressed very nicely and I really have something else to do, but if nobody else is expressing my concerns how is he going to know? His supervisor (the Big Boss) sends out these kinds of notices too. It just upsets me that some of these people who are well educated just don't bother to read or hear anything else but what the MSNBC promulgates.

Well, look at it this way. The MFM and the regime were inciting people to riot and sort of wink and nod indicated that they would not really intercede.

And nothing has happened outside of Ferguson and maybe Oakland.

I think there are a lot more Elber Guillory's, Dave Clark's and those 4 Chicago activists than we think. There has to be or we're in trouble.

If you feel the need to speak out, in keeping with your doctrine, just say you'll pray for all of the victims, or those hurt.

I really think you should just drop it though. Find a better opportunity after the fire has died down. It's still so volatile. There are other avenues to speak out, but via your boss/work is dangerous. Especially if you have a family to support.

60 Sure it's easy for all of us, here on the couch in our jammies, to tell FS to play a round of "let's you and him fight." Somebody's got to do it, right? And as long as it ain't me...

I for one was always willing to cavil on a matter of principle. It was not a career enhancer. May have done a little good; not much.

You know what's really hard? Writing that anonymous letter without having any turn of phrase, loop of handwriting, or DNA to give you away. My old boss, rest her soul, was the only female at a certain level at a district headquarters. She'd laugh out loud at those "anonymous" surveys. The first thing they asked was your gender and pay level.

For certain values of "constructive," it might look righteous to gently feel out and gauge (not gouge dammit) the feelings, opinions and arguments of your colleagues, with an eye toward raising consciousness. Looked at from above, of course, this is sedition.

Islam does not appear to have this issue. There are no supervisors, bishops, or the like, to whisper STFU. Any given imam may say any thing on Friday night, right until the headsman arrives. Religion is "safe" in the West because it is "organized." Touchable.

There are also many more Eleanor Holmes Nortons than we think, too. They fill the ranks of politics and the media.

64 Admittedly, I did not read the ethical dilemma in question. However, anytime one finds one's self looking to right some wrong, speak out against injustice, or otherwise object to the actions of others, give some thought to your own moral/ethical position. Then think about it some more.

Frankly, I'm not sure this world needs MORE people speaking out. What the world needs now is silence, sweet silence. I suspect the whole damned planet would be better off if we did more of that.

People who think there is some argument beyond "I will destroy you" that will dissuade them from their path are almost as delusional as the left themselves are.

Yeah, they always show replays from various cameras. At least I get to see it after the fact.

as if you would type a report or such and just send it via snail mail it can't be traced-not if you go to the town the supervisor works in and mail it from there.

94 My pastor is black. His No. 1 is Hispanic. Our congregation is probably 40% black in a town with a black population of maybe 6%. And all we manage to do is love and support each other and our community. No "social justice" conferences. No "Black History Month" sermons (I think we were doing Jeremiah in February). Our pastor has used the term "African-American" exactly once, and that was on Father's Day, in reference to the out-of-wedlock birth rate. The white guy in the suit and the black guy in the sports jersey hug each other and call each other "brother" every Sunday, and look out for each other during the week.

Not gloating, just noting that it can be done. And, I suppose, bemoaning the rebirth of large-scale racial strife under this president.

97 Last night attending a showing of a locally made indie film called Sequence, I was a pilgrim in the land of heathens.

During Dreamscape I was wondering if he was poking fun at new age type therapists when the dude is being praised for his clear eyes and she tells him lets go through this sequence. So we are treated to guy and therapist jointly raising their hands and grunt. After third iteration it fades to black and you hear the fourth so it sounds like ... wait a minute are they having sex?

The Temperature of Father Martin was an attempt to have The Big Chill about friends gathering to throw in the rive the ashes of a deceased friend. Martin we find out is an Episcopal priest who is divorced, has asthma, popped his wife two weeks before the wedding, steals a kiss from a female friend at gathering, and then runs to don a CPAP mask before he starts laughing. Fade to black. We never get to the ash scattering. And the ambient noise track is so loud from the music to CPAP machine, you have to strain to discover Martin is laughing as he sits on the toilet with the mask on.

And then in the Q+A after film, the writer and director talks about about how progressive Mississippi is. And the black female character who he portrays as a bit of a sex freak in Dreamscape, oh he used the name of an old school classmate without her permission.

I just finished a sermon series on Habbakuk. I did pray for peace before the Ferguson verdict and calls for peace and hope were part of our liturgy on the first Sunday of Advent.

I woke up one day and realized that none of these people are actually interested in having a real conversation/solution. It's pretty much self-congratulatory moral masturbation all the way down,i.e., I can prove to myself that I'm a better person by expressing how bad I feel.

Specifically, I realized that no one in this boat is trying to get *ME* to do anything other than affirm them in their fixed opinions.

And you know what? That's ok. We all do that. I'm ok with the fact that we all regularly exercise our ample capacity as human beings to be narcissistic gladhandlers.

As such, if someone I know wants to talk about it to me, then I'll listen with no compunction. Once you understand that that person not only does not want to hear that they might be wrong, but will actively fight against even the most oblique suggestion of that, then why bother all the mental effort to figure out what to say?

Go, listen, and if anyone asks you questions, reply with a concerned look and a, "hmmm, you know, I'm not quite sure about that", or, "I'd have to look into that some more", or, "I'm still thinking about that".

If people want to act like children, I'm going to treat them like children and not bother myself about serious dialogue.

My grandfather (who I work with) has a rx for percocet for his back that he almost never uses. I may see if I can bum a couple from him.

152 Anna Puma --

That's exactly what I'm doing -- finding out what the Dragonborn gets up to now that she's defeated both Alduin and Miraak. I got started a couple of days ago, and I've done a bit over a thousand words (about 500/day is the max I can do satisfactorily, though I can sometimes do a lot more if I'm on a roll).

Came up with a couple of good ideas really early this morning, so I have to do some research to see if they'll fit. I think I can work it so they're canonical, which I'm restricting myself to this time. Skyrim does have a bit of wiggle room, so I'm using it!

161 Yep Sven, its 'art' because the Mississippi Film Commission helped with this indie film. Hoi-poloi blood ticks on my tax dollar crafted this.

The only one of the four stories that had a clearly defined beginning, middle, and end was the first and shortest - Yazoo Women. Three good old boys bring to a house a riding mower. The lady of the house in a faux leopard print blouse and very tight black skirt invites them inside to get them some water. Inside is a divorce party going on. So the Cougars at the party decide to start dancing with the boys. Next scene the boys are driving back and then you notice one of the Cougars is snuggled up against the driver.

Its Never Cold in Vegas is the last. Wharf-rat looking Bob Dylan clone is auditioning for a part is how it opens. And from there is kinda day in the life dysfunctional. There is a fund raiser in it for this beat-poet who's poem is all about killing and burying a body in the sands outside Vegas. And it ends with the Dylan clone, in only his tightie whities, being serenaded in the bedroom by his girlfriend who is playing on her synth and keyboard.

Our Founders fought a "weaponized leviathan". Barely three percent of the population took up arms against it. They were ill equipped, ill fed, ill trained, ill prepared, and very disorganized.

In April of 1941, Yougoslavia was invaded and totally occupied my a "weaponized leviathan. Yet by Jan of 1945 a country that had been destroyed was fielding a force of Veteran Troops of about 200k in size agaisnt the invaders. They had reclaimed about a third of their country. They were fighting like mad when ever and where possible using what scrap they produce locally or capture from the enemy.

Will. Both examples show that those people had the will to do what is needed.

That is what it will take again.

Friend was not at showing. After viewing party was going to be at Hal and Mal's which is located in Jackson proper. After 10pm on a Thursday in Jackson. Really did not feel like trying to network with this type of crowd at risk to life and limb.

Was polite though, after movie congratulated him on getting movie made. Kept it safe. Though I did mention to another friend who was at showing, I am more traditional in that I prefer definite beginnings and ends to stories. After I told them I wrote 57,000 in November on a story.

200 FreeBeacon.com's headliner right now is a good read.


Liberalism Is a Hoax
Column: Public relations in the service of the left


http://freebeacon.com/columns/liberalism-is-a-hoax/

I've been feeling the same way as the author in his conclusion.

Just-so stories, extravagant assertions, heated denunciations, empty gestures, moral posturing that increases in intensity the further removed it is from the truth: If the mainstream narration of our ethnic, social, and cultural life is susceptible to error, it is because liberalism is the prevailing disposition of our institutions of higher education, of our media, of our nonprofit and public sectors, and it is therefore cocooned from skepticism and incredulity and independent thought. Sometimes the truth punctures the bubble. And when that happens--and lately it seems to be happening with increasing frequency--liberalism itself goes on trial.

Has the jury reached a verdict? Yes, your honor, it has. We find the defendant guilty. Liberalism is a hoax.


Because of social media. Because of conservative websites, newsites, and bloggers.

This is why the left is attacking all of the above so hard. The left is losing the narrative, slowly, starting with Andrew Breitbart (mostly in my mind), and then the avalanche of followers.

Voices can be heard without the TV & Paper Newspaper News Filters.

I have a good friend who has recently come into possession of an Armored Mercedes. Steel plated doors. Bulletproof windows. Installed gun holsters on the interior.

If anyone has any interest, let me know.

216 In the RC church, we believe that since the fall of Adam and Eve all are born with Original Sin which is expiated in baptism. From then on out, you're only on the hook for the sins you actually commit.

In the religion of the Left, it would seem White Privelege is an original sin that can never be absolved or expiated... indulgences must continually be offered.



So, no confession, no 3 Hail Hillary's, and go on?

newsmax.com has

11 Facts About the Eric Garner Case the Media Won't Tell You

...

3. Garner, 43, had history of more than 30 arrests dating back to 1980, on charges including assault and grand larceny.

4. At the time of his death, Garner was out on bail after being charged with illegally selling cigarettes, driving without a license, marijuana possession and false impersonation.

5. The chokehold that Patrolman Daniel Pantaleo put on Garner was reported to have contributed to his death. But Garner, who was 6-foot-3 and weighed 350 pounds, suffered from a number of health problems, including heart disease, severe asthma, diabetes, obesity, and sleep apnea. Pantaleo's attorney and police union officials argued that Garner's poor health was the main cause of his death.

6. Garner did not die at the scene of the confrontation. He suffered cardiac arrest in the ambulance taking him to the hospital and was pronounced dead about an hour later.

...

11. Less than a month after Garner's death, Ramsey Orta, who shot the much-viewed videotape of the encounter, was indicted on weapons charges. Police alleged that Orta had slipped a .25-caliber handgun into a teenage accomplice's waistband outside a New York hotel.

A local judge (black/female) is getting sentenced today in a corruption trial... a local 'community leader' has promised to have a mob on hand to manifest their displeasure over the whole business.

247 I really think you should just drop it though. Find a better opportunity after the fire has died down. It's still so volatile. There are other avenues to speak out, but via your boss/work is dangerous. Especially if you have a family to support.

I agree. I am all for standing up for one's beliefs, but, in this day and age, a belligerent Liberal boss can fire you and then poison the well for getting another job. In this employment market, everyone needs references and even if your company expressly forbids a supervisor from giving references, it is very easy to get around that--all they have to do is plant a teeny tiny seed of doubt by sighing and saying, I just WISH for your sake that I was ALLOWED to tell you about Fenelonspoke.

248 Well Cpt Charles I took a chance. At least when I ordered my ticket online, gave me an option where I wanted the ticket price to go. I chose microloans. Not sure where the money they took at the door went.

My friend, artist type and LIV mellow type. Asked if I had seen the movie Fury but they couldn't remember the name of that movie, said it was the one with the only Tiger tank. He thought war movies were pretty nit-picky on accuracy and I told him did not go see it because of 'issues' like an 88 only doing glancing damage on a Sherman. Did not climb on soapbox on Red Tails with them, stopped myself. They also trying to do the movie thing, asked if they got a spot but alas seems they have a crew. But will see.

Fenelon Spoke, don't think that was the generator.

Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) at December 05, 2014 08:52 AM (7f5Ol)

249 Fenelon,

I'm late to the thread but two things come to mind:

"Whom the gods wish to destroy they first anger"

Second, when Jesus was tempted, Satan tried a multi-pronged attack. The individual focus of each is a teaching in itself, but the response was consistent: "It is written"

In other areas, the disciples and others were frequently trying to get Jesus to get involved politically: Payment of taxes, whether to stone someone, and always pressure to claim his kingdom on earth now now now. He did not take the bait. If necessary he would just draw in the sand until the Father gave him the revelation on what to do.

I have no respect for clergy that exploit their position to use the Bible as a springboard for social issues. That is not their job. In any situation you are God's man, but are under no responsibility to "do" anything. Be at peace and walk tall in wisdom.

252 Fenelon, I worked for a LCDR who was a washout pilot. He asked me 'What do the men think about me, Chief?' I told him it was best to ask the men. He said 'The men work for you, Chief. You know what they think.' I told him 'The men think you're an ahole.' He asked me 'Well, what do you think?'' I said 'You're an ahole. Sir.' Perhaps that's one reason why I never made Senior Chief. Don't share any 'feelings', Fenelon. Trust me on this one.

Be bold and courageous. Is the Holy Spirit compelling you to speak? The fault is in our failure to bring the Gospel to the people. If these people were living the life of Christ, they would be alive today and the police would be bored. Allowing the world into the Church is the problem. We are supposed to be the positive influence for good, not mouth pieces for political causes.

If you honor God he will honor you.

You have my prayers.

254 #239 Facts about Garner: Did you know that the Police Sergeant supervising the arrest was a Black Woman? She stated that she heard him saying the stuff about breathing, but, noted that he seemed to be breathing just fine. IMHO, he died of asthma--you can be dying of asthma and be appearing to breathe just fine--your lungs are not successfully transferring oxygen. It is truly sad that he did not ask for his inhaler/rescue meds. I am not a doctor, just have friends and family with asthma and they can appear to be breathing, but, actually be in respiratory distress.

Train the police to ask someone complaining about breathing if they have asthma and need their meds.

259 Here in flyover country, we are watching with amusement at the hissy fit the coasts are having. You will notice that Ferguson quieted down when it got really cold and they saw the public opinion was turning against them. New York is filled with people who love to stir the pot and since that is where all the media is located, it gets stirred. We, the common folk out here in the hinterlands, just keep doing what we always do. We will watch as your cities are torn apart by people looking for a reason for doing harm. If they try to come here, they won't stay long, because we are savages, and most of us are armed.
