Quote of the Day I

Christian rulers throughout history did the same, Voegelin observed, when they allowed the illegitimate use of the legitimate political apparatus of the day. It is not acceptable to invoke God and at the same time disassociate the justice found in God's moral law from the implementation of political power for power's sake-particularly in the guise of some salvationist crusade that offers a convenient pretext for amassing power. Voegelin's famous command to both Christians and modern gnostics alike was, "Don't immanentize the eschaton!" Humanity must not try to play God by forcing the end times or by seeking utopia on earth. It will only lead, he warned, as in the Tower of Babel parable in the Bible, to political disorder and senseless human suffering.

Quote of the Day II - Adam Baldwin Unsafe For Women

Mainstream "geek culture" media have been frothing at the mouth this month because Supanova, an Australian convention for sci-fi, comic, anime and gaming fans, has refused to rescind actor Adam Baldwin's invitation to appear, after a petition claimed that, as a supporter of GamerGate, his attendance will make women "feel unsafe".

And by 'feel unsafe' they mean he will disagree with them. Because if you took feminist SJW's claims seriously, the only possible conclusion would be that women are such weak, utterly-maladapted-to-this-world delicate little creatures that they really should be assigned court-appointed guardians and placed in institutions where they can be protected from this cruel world of criticism, expectations, judgment and logic that refuses to properly bow down before the almighty Feelings.

"They sought paradise in a Scottish field - and found hunger, boredom and mosquitoes"

Evans, the author of this book, was one of those oddballs who rather looked forward to the apocalypse, because it promised 'challenging times ahead'. If, in the not too distant future, famines and droughts more or less wipe us out, that will be our own fault for allowing population levels to reach an unsustainable nine billion - the predicted figure for 2050. How much better the planet will be with a select handful living in their villages of yurts, log cabins, teepees and straw-bale huts, the children gambolling happily 'amidst the bracken and the trees'. The air will be cleaner. Wildlife 'will make a comeback'. Neighbours will help each other out. People will be fitter as a result of their manual labour.

Evans couldn't wait to create his retrograde society, where waif-like girls 'with long, tawny dreadlocks' would be doling out 'bowls of bean stew from a steaming cauldron'. He sold his house, gave up his academic career and moved to a field near Inverness. He looked at an adjacent waterfall and thought it could 'generate electricity'. He gazed at an acre of scrubland and believed he could 'keep a few pigs and chickens'. He spotted a deer and, though he had no butchery or tanning training, imagined turning its hide into shoes and gloves.

Fair play to Evans: by the time he came to write this book he realised he was delusional.

Also:

People often ask me why environmentalists tend always to incline to apocalyptic conclusions about the state of the planet. "Because it makes them happy," is my standard response. This is not tongue-in-cheek. There is something about certain kinds of personality types that derives a frisson of delight from contemplating the end of the world. And if you point out that the end of the world is not at hand, it makes environmentalists very unhappy, in part because it deprives them of the opportunity to play savior to the world.

Note that this personality type is not strictly confined to environmentalism or the Left.

Sweden's Multicultural Expert on Islamophobia Joins ISIS in Syria

Life in the Caliphate

Eight months of ISIS so far, as I sit to write, have taken their toll on every aspect of the city. Electricity and running water are available for two to four hours a week, but no one knows which hours in any given week. Umm Saja, an employee at a city office, said that she is not surprised by the lack of services: "Providing clean water and energy to people is not child's play. It takes regular, trained employees and experts. How are a bunch of brainwashed young people who have not finished grade school going to maintain such functions?" People approach the militants to complain only to be answered, "You Moslawis are too spoiled. Think about the early days of Islam. Did the Prophet own an air-conditioner?"

In these complaints one hears not only the voiced Islamist cant, but also the rural accents beneath it that identify most ISIS cadres as poorer, less well-educated Iraqis who have resented Mosul urbanites all their lives. This is a central sociological dimension to what has been going on that the Western press has missed almost entirely, as far as I can tell. More on this theme anon.

The extreme shortage of gasoline and other fuel has made cooking, cleaning, heating, and other basic functions primitive. "During rainy days we place buckets outside to collect water. We then run the water through cloth to trap dirt and other residue several times until the water is partially clear. This water is used for cleaning and personal hygiene", said Naila, a university professor

Grandma Maced By Police For Bringing Cupcakes To Granddaughter's Classroom

Apparently there is an on-going custody dispute over her son's daughters along with restraining orders for all involved.

Apparently not everyone likes grandma's cupcakes.

Mary Poole, 78, is still recovering from injuries after what she claims was a violent attack from a school district police officer last year, ABC30 reports. Now the California woman has finally filed a lawsuit, citing $180,000 in medical bills, a dislocated shoulder and fracture and the intense pain of being maced in the face twice.

Poole is alleging a litany of wrongdoing by the district's officer: excessive force, elder abuse, assault and false arrest.

"Ghost Rider" B-52 Rises From The Grave To Fly Again

To replace an active B-52H that was badly damaged by fire while on the ground at Barksdale Air Force Base and make the USAF arms treaty-dictated fleet of 76 B-52s whole once again."

FedEx Won't Ship DIY Gunsmithing Machine

It's just a mini CNC mill optimized for finishing 80% lowers but since it has the word 'gun' in its title, it must be evil and/or illegal.

Last fall, Defense Distributed - the company created by Cody Wilson of 3D-printed gun fame - announced a DIY gunsmithing machine called the Ghost Gunner. Now, FedEx is refusing to ship the device, saying there are laws or regulations that would prohibit them from shipment. A FedEx spokesperson said, "This device is capable of manufacturing firearms, and potentially by private individuals. We are uncertain at this time whether this device is a regulated commodity by local, state or federal governments. As such, to ensure we comply with the applicable law and regulations, FedEx declined to ship this device until we know more about how it will be regulated." Wilson argues, "They're acting like this is legal when in fact it's the expression of a political preference. The artifact that they're shipping is a CNC mill. There's nothing about it that is specifically related to firearms except the hocus pocus of the marketing."

They said they wouldn't do that but, unsurprisingly, they lied, and are now touting "plant-based: diets for "sustainability" rather than explicit worship of mother Gaia.

15 I think in general, exposure to a variety of things early in life helps prevent allergies later; however, one of my sons possessed very severe pediatric allergies to very common substances (eventually determined to be milk, eggs, and wheat) even though they were introduced very gradually into his diet just like we did to the other kids, none of whom have any allergies. The word "individual" exists for a reason.

45 "Mary Poole, 78, is still recovering from injuries after what she claims was a violent attack from a school district police officer last year"

I recall having been taken aback during the Martin-Zimmerman foofooraw by the revelation that Trayvon Martin had been arrested by a school district police officer, who found a "burglary tool" and the evident proceeds of burglary, to wit, expensive women's jewelry for which Martin was unable to account. (It eventually was traced to a nearby residence.)

I wasn't taken aback by Saint Trayvon of the Bloodied Hoodie turning out to have been a criminal. Not in the least. What I found startling was that the school district had their own dedicated police force. WTF? Is that a thing now?

Didn't take long to figure that one out. It is an artifact of anti-truancy policies. Educrats now face having the flow of money cut back when pupils aren't actually present in school.

My god! The money! The money! Won't someone please think of the money!

Well, educrats turn out to be VERY KEENLY focused on the money and its continued flow. And hence there's a problem. In districts where the pupils are likely to be criminals, when the pupils get caught committing crimes, bringing in the local metro police to handle the matter would typically mean that said perp-upils would end up in juvie, and not in class, and hence _the money_ would not be forthcoming.

This got the attention of the educrats. Speedily.

So having their own puppet school district police force reporting to the educrats means that when problem pupils commit crimes and are caught, those crimes can be safely swept under the rug by the "police", and the miscreants put on "diversion" and kept in school. Hence money. Everybody happy.

And, Saint Trayvon had benefited repeatedly from this system. As his various serious crimes were discreetly excused.

That Saint Trayvon was a nasty enough piece of work that the educrats eventually felt they had no alternative other than suspending him, with the associated financial penalties for the district, instead of "diverting" him?

It tells you that they were worried about an even worse thing potentially resulting from his presence than a loss of money. A shooting or a stabbing on school premises. THAT can't be covered up very easily.

63 Agree completely on the apocalyptic dream casting that the left is given to. You mention that people on the right are given to it as well.

I had a discussion with a friend of mine once about the allure of post-apocalyta to libertarians. The argument basically boiled down to it is mostly being due to an intense weariness of PC/leftist culture. One thing about a post apocalyptic landscape where humanity has been thrown back to the stone age is that it would crystalize what is truly important for people. You want to believe that all viewpoints are equal and we have to try to understand our enemies. Well you can't because they are coming over that hill and are going to kill all the men and take all the women. That kind of thing.

For the conservative/traditionalist mindset however, this type of idea is anathema because at the same time you crystalize people's views of the world, you also throw out all the good things. We are conservative or traditionalist because we believe that western civilization IS A GOOD THING and is worth protecting.

As much as there are times I feel sympathy with the "Let it Burn" crowd, what comes after everything comes down is not a reinstitution of the old ways and courtesies, that comes hundreds of years later. What happens right then is a brutal dogfight of pain and misery.

My take on the "let it burn" thing is that there's going to be fire no matter what we do. That doesn't mean we can't keep it confined to the kitchen. The US Government is pretty well past the point of hopelessness, but the Constitution and the principles it was built on are still sound. It's going to go, and I don't think there's any effort in the possible that can prevent that, but if the states survive its collapse relatively intact, we'll start again and build it better.

I call bullshit. That was not PTSD, that was a mixture of perhaps drugs and a very screwed up mentally guy before he ever went into combat. The combat probably did not help anything, but he was not right before then, I would wager.

It's going to go, and I don't think there's any effort in the possible that can prevent that, but if the states survive its collapse relatively intact, we'll start again and build it better.

Am not a Goth or a lawyer, but stayed at a Holiday Inn.

Some California cities have laws controlling rent, which of course also control how landlords use the property.

Ellis Act is state law that lets landlords "go out of business" and evict tenants.

SF has city law forcing landlord to pay evicted tenants, which makes it too expensive for landlords to use the Ellis Act. Until SFGoth smited it down, I guess.

On the flip side, in 2004, after all those "values" voters gave Dubya a second term, did you think the country would elect a guy with the middle name of Hussein in 4 years? 8 years after 9/11? History has made some really bizarre twists in the past and will do so again.

All true, except that Chicago has always been as corrupt, if not more corrupt than Detroit. Decades of listening to local Chicago news turns your stomach. Chicago is an extremely large voting block for Illinois politics and Illinois has had 2 consecutive governors sent to prison.

The way that Chicago is different from Detroit is that they still have a large proportion of educated, prosperous, successful people who live in the city. Unfortunately, those prosperous, educated people are also LIBERAL. So their city, in spite of having people who should know better, is going straight down the toilet, just like Detroit.

Yeah, I will admit to getting a little ... snow fatigued... this year. Running out of places to put it all. Usually we get at least one melt during the winter, but nope... just keeps piling up and staying below freezing.

At least the snow is a good insulator against the house to keep the siberian cold air out.

But yeah, we drive in snow every day and are used to it. Drive slow, leave plenty of distance for stopping and turning, you'll all survive and be alright.

Also, always keep some gas in your generator and a few 5 gallon gas cans lying around and have a plan for heat if your electricity goes out. Cuz that's a real bitch.

Oh, and if it does get knocked out -- for godsake, turn off the water, drain it out in the basement at the closest shut off to the ground, and leave faucets open upstairs so water can expand in the pipes. And then enjoy a miserable night with no heat.

310 I predict Jesus will come back shortly before the heat death of the Universe.

Well, several times, God mentions "the thousandth generation" in context of a blessing towards Abraham, et al. Jesus was 40 generations from Abraham (IIRC, from Matt Ch. 1). 2000 years after that now, so we're at about generation 110. Only a little while, now!

314 "The way that Chicago is different from Detroit is that they still have a large proportion of educated, prosperous, successful people who live in the city."

Also: when the American economy shifted rather dramatically from making things to financing things, Chicago had the CME, and Detroit had, um, payday loan storefronts.

My suspicion is that the financial industry is about to virtualize and decentralize to such a degree that former hubs of it such as Chicago and New York City are going to be stunned with the speed with which the money went away.

THEN Chicago will go full Detroit.

He also says something about "Owning the cattle on 7000 hills."

In my experience, when God starts using numbers that are bigger than 1 or 2, you need to start paying attention to if he's using symbolism.

1000 Generations means "All The Generations." Or "Until the end of time."

Now, it might *also* be 1000 literal generations, but I wouldn't count on that.

Which works with the symbolism argument.

I've mentioned her before here, but easily my most aggravating FB friend at this stage *isn't* a leftist. It's a woman who refuses to leave her home to go to church, yet is absolutely convinced she knows the absolute truth about everything about Christianity and that the End of Days is at hand.

I've been very tempted to just tell her it's obvious what she really believes: that she's the *only* person who's going to heaven. If you so much as prefer Pepsi to her beloved Coke, yer goin' ta hell!!! Honestly, she'd almost be easier to deal with if she was a leftist.

You can't disagree with her either without her immediately putting on her "poor poor me, I'm just trying to get you saved" routine. Just more proof, oftentimes Christians are their own worst enemies.

Yup, I'm just a tad North of you. There was nothing on the ground but dirt & dead leaves for Christmas & the New Year. Now? We're going to be shovelling this shit until Heap Big Warren takes her oath of office.

As an aside, there is a train of thought that considers the "First
Rome" to have fallen when Alaric the Goth sacked Rome in 410 AD; the
"Second Rome" to have fallen when the Turks sacked Constantinople in
1453 AD; and the "Third Rome" to still exist....any guesses as to what
capital city that Third Rome might be?



Posted by: cthulhu at February 24, 2015 10:52 PM (T1005)



According to Russia, they became the third Rome after the fall of
Constantinople because a Byzantine pincers married into the Russian
royal house.

Ding, ding, ding!

Ivan III of Russia ("Ivan the Great") married Sophie Paleologue, niece of the last Byzantine Emperor, partially at the suggestion of Pope Paul II....thus establishing a claim that Moscow is the Third Rome.

About that ISIS profile - I'll read it, and the excerpted part is good, but - duh. I mean with respect to who the "foot soldiers" of ISIS are almost certainly to be. Not very bright or educated but "motivated" yutes from rural Iraq - and Egypt, Syria, maybe even a few from Jordan and Palestinian areas.

In other words, pretty much the same feed stock we saw in Iraq before (on the Sunni side). Sure, some of the brass may have Syrian or Iraqi military training (though most likely, those folks are essentially contractors, not true believers), but I doubt there's much of the "elite" global jihadi squad - Chechens, Bosnians with real military experience. And the rich nutcase kids from the UK or Pakistan or Egypt or Saudi don't bring much capability to the fight - unless you're talking "PR" aimed at non-Arabs/non-Muslims.

And prepare to be shocked to learn that drug use is rampant, and standard, among the ISIS yutes. I mean insane fanatical puritanism is one thing. Getting/keeping the yutes in action often requires some chemical encouragement (see drug content ofdead jihadi scum in Fallujah after we cleaned that out).

As for the Revelation thing, my dad has been doing a study on it in his Bible class at his church (based on the book I mentioned) and gave me a copy. It's an interesting (if poorly written) read. And it makes much more sense than a lot of the "Revelation as End-Times Prophesy" stuff you hear.

Stanley's take in the book is that everything up through chapter 20 of Revelation had taken place by the time the Apostles were anointed with the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

And all the imagery is explaining what was going on *spiritually.*

He says a few things I'd like backed up a whole lot more to accept firmly, but the vast majority of the book makes much more sense than the "Rapture and Tribulation" story.

In a very interesting way one is reminded also of the councils, purges, manifestoes, and pretensions of the so-called people's governments of the Iron Curtain culture province, where the precepts of the Prophet Marx, reinterpreted by an elite of Ulamas, are put forth as the ijma of a purely mythical entity, the People.

Bottom line...

Services like Netflix, Hulu, Prime and Apple TV are eating up a disproportionate amount of bandwidth by being....successful. Although each already pays big premiums for this, it is still not "fair". So, while creating a problem in order to solve it, (the first part of that being a out the only thing Gov does well), they are proposing to step in and administer fairness of access.

No way that could lead to any sort of censorship. Nuh uh. No way. It is way more than that, but it could be used to shut down this very blog if implemented. They also seem to have forgotten what the first two Ws in WWW stand for.

466 Net Neutrality is "the Fairness Doctrine" for the internet.

Basically, the idea the Left is using is that some day Comcast or Time-Warner or AT&T might *possibly* start charging certain websites a premium for their bandwidth and what if they did that to your blog!?!?!?!

Which, of course, is how you know it's just scare-mongering, since the big telecoms neither know nor care about DedicatedTenther.blogspot.com.

But, even given that, it seems that, once again, the Prog-Tards have forgotten that you have no right to something that someone else must produce or provide. Therefore, because the possibility exists that it *could* happen, Government must step in to ensure that it doesn't happen. Or that it does happen, but only "fairly." Or something. (Another sign of it being scare-monger tactics: they don't actually ever say what they want Government to do).

Posted by: redc1c4 at February 25, 2015 12:33 AM (lsWof)

501 385 410 Here's my standard answer to the "Christianity is fundamentally socialist" claim:

You don't know anything about Christianity.

1. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead to care for his widowed mother (luke 7). He didn't say it was the community's job, or Herod's job, or Pilate's job, or Caesar's job, all of which He could easily have done. Instead, He raised the son to care for his mother. In fact, nowhere in the New Testament can you find a word where He says that caring for the poor is the job of government. Instead, He says it is the job of believers.

2. You and I have a duty to give charity. We could agree that government is the best way to do that. I disagree -- I believe Catholic Charities or the Salvation Army or even your local church would do a far better job of it -- but a group of people could conceivably agree that government could manage it for them as their agent (which logically also means that the lowest possible level of government would be the most effective -- I'm talking about the village, neighborhood, or apartment building level of government, which can monitor behaviors, but that is another story). However, when we use the police power of government to take from a third person to contribute to our charitable cause, that is no longer charity. And when the recipients of the charity, or their designated representatives are allowed to vote "charity" for themselves to be paid for by all three of us, then what is going on has nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus Christ. It is a way that political affairs can be organized by men, but it has nothing to do with God.

3. The admonitions of the rich that Christ makes are not calls for redistribution by government. They are exhortations to charity. They are about what is in the givers' hearts, not a way to care for the poor. Christ does not tell the rich to go give all their money to Caesar (Pilate, Herod) so that they can redistribute it for Him. Schemes that tax the rich to care for the poor are not based in Christian charity. Christ's concern was the salvation of men's and women's souls, not the workings of Earthly government.

And don't even get me started about how He felt about tax collectors.

(And what does that say about us that we take antything seriously that a 12 year old might say ). I'm reading through Gerties Sewing Blog archives and one commenters bemoans that she likes vintage fashions from the 50s because that was "the time of our oppression". If you try to tell young women that housewives in the 50s didn't feel they were oppressed and might have enjoyed raising their families, they won't believe you.

At least the county commissioners voted to have "In God We Trust" as a motto on the wall of the meeting room. There was a huge debate and I expect that the WA state AG will insist they take it down. It's a very strange culture in the US these days.

527 I've been up & awake since before 4 am.
It's time for me to go to sleep.

Good Night, Horde.

I left for 20 minutes to update my winter 2014-2015 to read in detail if, for any chance, my older brother forgets how bad this winter has been. He shouldn't because he's done most of snow removal & my best male friend has helped but he's had to work on worse days.
Last week he left here Sunday after 7 & came home near midnight. Instead of coming in house after long day he was shoveling porches. I was going to get on porch roof because 4 feet of snow was on it.
My brother told me drop from window to roof was too deep & I told my roommate we'd figure out something. He's very tall & shoveled porch roof & I didn't hear him.

I will miss having him around.

532 In the seven years that I lived aboard, I had in the ship's lockers, the means to build, to destroy, to heal, to kill, and just about everything in between.

I could distill seawater, harvest fish, birds and game ashore.

The boat could make for me, electricity, hot water, distance made good and that distance far away from hostile shores.

Not bad for a thirty-foot sloop.

Living now in a nearly paid for 1,400 sq. ft. house, I have roughly 1/3 of that self sufficiency, and am painfully aware of the difference.

Sometime in the next year or three, I think there'll be another boat. Forty to fifty foot range, with some serious blue-water credentials.

549 @528 - This is one of those 'they all need to lose' races, my uninformed assessment based on five minutes' reading is that Rahm ended up in a runoff against a guy picked by the teachers' union head who had to drop out of the race herself.

The only reason Twinkletoes didn't win outright is because a well-funded black candidate took his black votes away, but couldn't get enough traction outside the black areas to knock off the proggie.

I'm betting that in the runoff Rahm will get his black votes back and win reelection.

Boy, you ain't kidding. And then it freezes up so nicely at night, just enough to make the world a sheet of ice. The dog actually slipped on the sidewalk this evening.

Where in hell is our snow? I really wanted to watch the doggies run.

You live in a house with arsonists...

the GOP refuses to try to take away the matches...

"let it burn" is not about wanting the fire but recognizing it's coming and making it hot enough to burn out the arsonists too.

Iron Ballerina is about to find out his pet monsters are going to devour his political career hungrily....

Smart conservatives will ally with the La Raza types to make sure the asshole left gets devoured first.

631 All of ISIS are war criminals who have also participated in crimes against humanity. The treatment of willing members of ISIS should be execution. (Well, maybe interrogate them as long as they are useful, THEN execute them.)
