Wow, Howard Schultz peeked out of his bubble long enough to notice the rancorous division in America. He has no idea that much of this is by design. With Americans at war with each other, it’s much easier for government to grab more of our freedoms from us.
The Starbucks CEO has issued a call for civility. We’re supposed to all get together and heal now.
Howard, how about healing your barristas’ salaries a bit. They’re nowhere near averaging that magical $15 dollars an hour. ;-)
Outside of the government funded rent-a-mobs stirring up hatred among Americans, there won’t ever be unity while Americans disagree on whether it’s OK to usurp and embezzle, as Washington DC does, kill babies and sell their parts, as Planned Parenthood does, or groom little kids for sex, as our government does.
Which set of “values” would you be espousing, Howard?
Standard operating procedure for the left is to tangle up a Republican candidate on the issue of abortion. Most people don’t think deeply about this issue, because they’re too busy with other things, or they Want to be too busy. Taking a stand on abortion causes cognitive dissonance for those who support it, and a social cost for those who actively oppose it. It’s easier to be a “moderate” and try not to think about it at all. Trump is the latest guy to get tangled in the web, by none other than “Chrissie” Matthews. Trump had recently declared himself to be more pro-life, rather than the “moderate” that he used to be. Obviously he hasn’t spent a long time thinking about what abortion is, and what causes it. Now he’s having to walk back a statement about whether or not there should be some kind of punishment for women who abort.
One interesting thing is that a woman does get punished if sheself aborts or purposely does something that causes harm to her unborn baby. No one seems to be fighting against those laws and policies.
The main problem with trying to invent a means to “punish” the woman who gets an abortion is that most of these abortions involve coercion from outside. This can also apply to the “self abortions”.
Trump lost it with Matthews due to his general ignorance of the coercion that accompanies most abortions.
The RNC is currently planning to support Hillary over Trump or Cruz, if either of those two is able to get enough delegate support in the primary. This will assure our downhill slide into government controlled everything.
Expect only an increase in abortion coercion as the government joins in. This is part and parcel of government run health care. Once the health care workers are required to participate, forcing abortions on women is not far behind.
Born with the name Rita Rizzo, the famous nun who ran the Catholic broadcasting powerhouse, EWTN, joined the Poor Clares at age 21, becoming Sister Mary Angelica of the Annunciation. She became one of the founders of a new monastery in Canton Ohio, and eventually won permission to build a new Monastery in the South in Feb of 1961. At that time, the Catholics in her target city of Irondale, Alabama, comprised just 2 percent of the population. With initial plans to broadcast some programs on a local station, Mother Angelica, found some other television content of that station to be severely incompatible with her own. Her objections fell on deaf ears, so she decided to build her own television station in the garage of her facility. This was the beginning of EWTN, Eternal Word Television Network, which has brought traditional Catholicism into homes it might never have reached by conventional means. This network has served since 1981, as a major support of the teachings of the Catholic Church during a period in which it is being opposed from all sides. The extensive influence Mother Angelica’s ministry has been recognized world wide by both friends and foes.
At EWTN, it is felt that their ministry has been supported by the prayers of Mother Angelica during the many years of being effectively cloistered in the aftermath of her strokes. Her prayer became strong as her speech became weak. Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, the Creator granted Mother Angelica her Celestial Discharge. Prayers for her and her Sisters and the continuance of their ministry.
Got this hilarious pic in an email. Who did it? A search tracked it to Mike Cernovich’s site, Danger and Play. Check out his article HERE, then surf his whole site. It’s an eye opener especially for guys, and not for metrosexuals who need a safe space.
Cernovich has full awareness of how Trump gets his free media coverage, and campaigns at lower cost than Anyone!
The shock is that the New York Times would publish the fact that ISIS is using birth control and abortion to maintain their sex slaves in a rape-able state. It seems that the cultural upsurge of anti-rape sentiment (particularly among younger people) has overcome even the left’s love of abortion!
Why does it take 100 years for leftists to admit what we knew all along? Birth control and abortion have always been used to keep women as sex toys which are capable of maintaining a comfortable temperature and texture. Through natural means, women could have much more effectively promoted themselves as valued member of society and advanced their own self determination.
History has been made. The New York Times has admitted the obvious.
Both domestically and abroad, abortion and birth control have been used to keep women as a permanent underclass at best, and tortured sex slaves at worst. ISIS has driven the point home in a way so graphic that the most hardened, cynical, leftist media venue is unable to ignore it.
The next step is for the the NYT to admit the main reason why the regime is importing all of those children without their parents.
(The New York TImes article, by Rukmini Callimachi, appears in print 3-13-16 in their New York Edition, as ISIS’ System of Rape Relies on Birth Control and is also found online.)
So many people of all political stripes seem to forget about the value of freedom of speech and religion when it’s their turn on top, and they have a chance to crush their rivals. The Evangelical Atheists have been all about squashing public displays of Christianity for decades.
It’s time to remind them that their turn is coming. Russia and the old USSR used to be an Atheist, Commie Paradise. But times are changing. It seems that Vladimir Putin has been finding his Orthodox roots. It’s no longer cool to advertise abortion nor gayness in Russia. Here’s a story which you might take with a grain of salt, because it’s from that “news” dumpster called NBC. A reporter, called Alexey Eremenko, claims that a Russian is facing possibly a year in prison for claiming, on social media, that there is no God. Viktor Krasnov is said to be on trial in Stavropol, Russia, for “offending believer’s feelings”, after having undergone a month of mental health testing. Perhaps Atheists are now considered crazy in Russia.
The enforcers of political correctness, who feel more powerful and alive when they’re suppressing opposing ideas, should remember that times change, and the next ideas to be suppressed will be their own.
