Debunking Stupidity


Thought For The Day – Morality?

“Knowledge is a deadly friend if no one sets the rules” – “Epitaph” by King Crimson

Where does your morality come from? What causes you to *not* kill the person next to you in the line at the store?  What keeps you *from* beating your spouse? What keeps you from breaking the store windows and taking what you want? Rules. The rule of law. But where did they come from? The atheist says there is no morality, no God, no meaning. 

If we are just tribal monkeys that learned to speak, why does America even exist? Why do you care about “the less fortunate”? If we are just tribal monkeys that learned to talk, we would kill them to protect ourselves. 

But we don’t. We don’t because we know deep down it would be wrong. And that deep down feeling of right vs wrong we battle daily is ingrained. 

By mearly asking someone questions of a moral nature proves there is a morality. And if there is a morality, then there has to be a baseline, a standard for this morality. 

If there is a standard for morality, it must come from outside of ones self which means someone or something had to set that standard and ingrain it in us. You could say it was your parents, but then the question is where did they get it?  From their parents, which means they got it from their parents, and so on, and so on. Which means at some point we get back to the tribal monkeys. 

But tribal monkeys don’t have morality, they have instinct. 

So I conclude we didn’t come from tribal monkeys, but from someone with morality who is outside of us. 

Hmmmm….



Facists Yelling Facism (AKA Celebracrats Being Intolerant)

Today, yet another celebrity,Sarah Silverman, is calling Donald Trump a Facist. She actually is calling for a military overthrow of Trump…*sigh*

So let’s look at the definition of “Facists” and “Fascism”:

Facist (From Merriam-Webster Online):

“[A] political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition”

Facism (From Merriam-Webster Online):

 “[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”

So, we have a celebrity, Sarah Silverman, calling for a military overthrow of a democratically elected representative of the people. She disagrees with the fact that he is enforcing the laws on the books, exactly what he said he would do. None of his executive orders create or remove laws, they only require those that work for him to enforce the existing laws. He is not allowed to do anything else by the very laws he is upholding. If he were truly doing what she said he was, then he would have already been removed from office.

Madonna (or my preferred name for her MAD-Donna) is “thinking about blowing up the white house”. Well that’s tolerant huh?

Both of these celebrities want the military to overthrow the government because they don’t like the outcome of the 2017 Presidential election. By definition, that is autocratic and facist. To me this is ironic since Silverman, a professed Jew, is acting like a Nazi, and being intolerant. 

And MAD-Donna is an overpaid, singing prostitute who isn’t tolerant of someone else having different views than hers, so much so, she speaks of killing the person and those supporting him. That’s pretty facist to me.

These aren’t the only celebrities acting like facist toddlers. I don’t have the time to even begin making the list of intolerant, overpaid bullies that seem to believe that because they are entertainers, their voice is always correct, and is more important than the people that pay for their supposed entertainment. What is truly sad to me is I thought Sarah Silverman was one of the more beautiful, underated actresses/comedians in the business. Now I see she’s just another sad example of the facist elites in the “Hollywood”.

I hope the people of the United States will keep all this in mind and dismiss these whining brats and other celebrities as what they are, children who need a good spanking by not buying their entertainment. Don’t go to their movies, don’t buy their music, don’t go to their concerts, etc. But my faith in the general public in this area is not very high. We, as a people and culture, look more at the skin not at the heart.



Challenge to all Coaches, VT Coach Teaches His Team The Truth About National Anthem, Are You Willing To As Well?

Back in 2015, Buzz Williams, coach for the Virginia Tech Hokies basketball team, had his team meet with veterans, learn about our national anthem, and what it really means what is played before every game.

“So when the anthem is played, we’re going to stand like grown men, and we’re going to honor men like this, that gave their life, so we can have a chair to sit in,” Williams said.

We’ve had too many professional and amatuer athletes use “freedom of expression” as a crutch to disrespect our veterans in the name of “free speech”. They need to learn that they have their free speech was paid for by the same men and women that they are offending by disrespecting the flag.  

My challenge to our coaches out there: Are you willing to do the same? Are you thankful for what the men and women of this country gave for our freedoms? Are you man or woman enough to stand in front of your team and teach your team  the same lesson as Coach Williams?

What Sacrifices Have You Made For Your “Cause”?

Recently I was listening to Ravi Zacharias. He had been invited to speak at the center for Bioethics and Human Dignity. The title of his talk was “Unplugging Truth in a Morally Suicidal Culture”. He was discussing the issues we have in society where tolerance and open-mindedness require us to leave our beliefs at the door.

He read a brief excerpt from a speech that Peggy Noonan had given a 1972. The part that stuck out to me was:

“What you applaud you encourage, but beware what you celebrate.”  -Peggy Noonan

How many times do we sacrifice love and compassion for the sake of being known as tolerant and open-minded? Eventually the sacrifices become the norm rather than the exception.

 



Sharpton Calls For Feds To Take Over States Rights To Police

In yet another stupid, moronic statement, poverty pimp, and race-baiter Al Sharpton is now calling for the federal government to take over the police in the US. He said that he wants “[the] DOJ to take over the policing in this country.”

Uh huh…Sharpton, did you think this through? Do you realize for what you are asking?

You are calling for a police state, not a free state.  You realize that this has already been done in the 20th century? Have you ever heard of the Gestapo of Hitler? Have you heard of the Iraqi Royal Guard of Hussein? These are the result of a police state.  Freedoms lost. Life trivialized.

But I know you don’t care, as long as you get your fame and fortune. You don’t care who gets hurt or looses their freedoms and/or lives. As long as you get your paycheck.

You are a bigot and a poverty pimp. Get off the news, get off the TV and radio, and out of my country, because you certainly don’t act or talk like an American.

Putin Calls Obama’sBluff, Obama Doesn’t Care

As you may remember, a few days ago, Obama told Russia that there would be consequences if they continued their military invasion of the Ukraine.

Well Putin has called Obama’sBluff bluff.

What was Obama’s Bluff response? Today, his want-to-be highness skipped the security briefing on the Russian-Ukraine conflict.

I wonder what round of golf this was? I mean it has to be important to get him away from his game.
