thanksgiving

Psalm 107 (NASB)

-------+++++++-------

O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
And gathered from the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the south.


---+++---

They wandered in the wilderness in a desert region;
They did not find a way to an inhabited city.
They were hungry and thirsty;
Their soul fainted within them.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;
He delivered them out of their distresses.
He led them also by a straight way,
To go to an inhabited city.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men!
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

-+-

There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death,
Prisoners in misery and chains,
Because they had rebelled against the words of God
And spurned the counsel of the Most High.
Therefore He humbled their heart with labor;
They stumbled and there was none to help.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death
And broke their bands apart.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men!
For He has shattered gates of bronze
And cut bars of iron asunder.

-+-

Fools, because of their rebellious way,
And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.
Their soul abhorred all kinds of food,
And they drew near to the gates of death.

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
He sent His word and healed them,
And delivered them from their destructions.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men!
Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And tell of His works with joyful singing.

-+-

Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters;
They have seen the works of the LORD,
And His wonders in the deep.
For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths;
Their soul melted away in their misery.
They reeled and staggered like a drunken man,
And were at their wits' end.

Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
He caused the storm to be still,
So that the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad because they were quiet,
So He guided them to their desired haven.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders to the sons of men!
Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people,
And praise Him at the seat of the elders.

---+++---

He changes rivers into a wilderness
And springs of water into a thirsty ground;
A fruitful land into a salt waste,
Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

He changes a wilderness into a pool of water
And a dry land into springs of water;
And there He makes the hungry to dwell,
So that they may establish an inhabited city,
And sow fields and plant vineyards,
And gather a fruitful harvest.
Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly,
And He does not let their cattle decrease.

When they are diminished and bowed down
Through oppression, misery and sorrow,
He pours contempt upon princes
And makes them wander in a pathless waste.

But He sets the needy securely on high away from affliction,
And makes his families like a flock.
The upright see it and are glad;
But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth.

---+++---

Who is wise?
Let him give heed to these things,
And consider the lovingkindnesses of the LORD.

meet the new boss again

Commentor tseib at Lileks (edited):
"...the attitude many Baby Boomers ultimately took toward the world of freedom and prosperity their parents' generation had secured for them. Having grown up never knowing want, and in line to inherit a post-war world of unparalleled material comfort..., they shunned their parents' straight life of compliance and conspicuous consumption (at least for a time) for adventure, self-expression, and non-conformity. Fifty years later, they ARE the establishment and - while still picturing themselves as rebellious rock-and-rollers - seek to impose a conformity of political correctness (and a hierarchy of authority with their college-educated selves as the obvious rulers over the blue-collar deplorables) far more proscribed and authoritarian than anything their parents could have dreamed up."

that Churchill speech

The earlier section is just as relevant as the later, more remembered, section:
Turning once again, and this time more generally, to the question of invasion, I would observe that there has never been a period in all these long centuries of which we boast when an absolute guarantee against invasion, still less against serious raids, could have been given to our people. In the days of Napoleon, of which I was speaking just now, the same wind which would have carried his transports across the Channel might have driven away the blockading fleet. There was always the chance, and it is that chance which has excited and befooled the imaginations of many Continental tyrants. Many are the tales that are told. We are assured that novel methods will be adopted, and when we see the originality of malice, the ingenuity of aggression, which our enemy displays, we may certainly prepare ourselves for every kind of novel stratagem and every kind of brutal and treacherous manœuvre. I think that no idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered and viewed with a searching, but at the same time, I hope, with a steady eye. We must never forget the solid assurances of sea power and those which belong to air power if it can be locally exercised.

I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance

Serge Trifkovic via Catholic Answers:
"Some critics may object that this account of Islam in the modern world does not pay much attention to Islamic moderation, to the everyday wish of everyday Muslims for a quiet life. This is not because such moderates are rare, but because they are rarely important. Religions, like political ideologies, are pushed along by money, power, and tiny vocal minorities. Within Islam, the money and the power are all pushing the wrong way. So are the most active minorities. The urgent need is to recognize this. Our problem is not prejudice about Islam, but folly in the face of its violence and cruelty. And in any case, the willingness of moderates to be what are objectively bad Muslims, because they reject key teachings of historical Islam, may be laudable in human terms but does nothing to modify Islam as a doctrine."

A ransom to Iran by any other name...

...is just as criminal:
"Let’s not forget, when North was involved with the mere transfer of weapons and replacement parts for weapons to Iran in exchange for hostages in the 1980s, our nation was at a stand-still as Congress and the media behaved as though the presidency (and quite possibly the future of our Democratic Republic) was hanging in the balance.

Today, the circumventing of federal law by laundering US currency through a Swiss bank and converting it to 500 Euro bills (the preferred denomination of drug cartels and terrorists) and sending it on an unmarked plane in the dead of night while a plane with our American hostages waits for it to land barely warrants one question at a presidential press conference."

History Lesson

To paraphrase she snailie at Lileks today:
For nearly a century, the Democratic Party was the political wing of the Ku Klux Klan. The femtosecond African Americans were given voting rights the states couldn't weasel away, their mantra became 'we were never at war with minorities, we were always at war with the white power structure'.

Speak Truth To Power

The Witherspoon Institute explains how "tyranny comes disguised as civil rights":
How do you get public opinion on board with an agenda that leads them to deny the reality of their own humanity? There are lots of pieces to this puzzle, including the erosion of social trust, the breakdown of family, social polarization, and growing ignorance of history. But the groundwork has been laid over a long period of time.

First, virtually all outlets of communication had to be on board—Hollywood, academia, the media. Check.

All medical personnel, particularly mental health personnel, had to be “educated” to comply with the transgender program or risk losing their licenses. Check.

The educational establishment had to imbue schoolchildren with the ideology. Check.

Large corporations had to get on board as stakeholders and enforcers. Check.

And, of course, the push to legally de-sex society had to be embedded—Trojan Horse style—within a slightly less alien idea, with the slick slogan “marriage equality.” Check.

Churches had to be brought on board so that even religion became a conduit for anti-truth. Check.

Social, emotional, and economic pressures had to be established to censure anyone who dared to question the wisdom of it all. Check.

Any such person had to be labeled a bigot, a hater, and a non-person. Checkmate.

More on Bernie

One Bernie supporter on Facebook had posted an image about how it was government's job to redistribute wealth. Apparently my refutation of its ill logic was sound enough that the post was deleted. Here is a distillation of the points I made there:

Government has a duty to provide defense. The extent of that defense is debatable (and offense much more debatable), but the role itself is not.

Government has a duty to build infrastructure. The extent of that role is debatable, but the role itself is not.

Government has a duty to uphold justice, and to refute the demands of those who co-opt the word 'justice' for their own corrupt schemes.

Government DOES NOT have a duty to give away freebies to any constituencies. Neither Wall Street nor their Occupiers, neither college students nor corporations, neither poor nor rich nor anyone in between deserve to have government steal from other citizens to satisfy their greed.

It is the role of charity to take care of the least fortunate. Charitable people do this first by taking care of immediate needs (food, medicine, etc.), then ideally by helping the recipient help themselves (job training, eliminating addictions, etc.) Organizations can only remain charitable as far as its members remain charitable, and are as prone to corruption as any other human organization.

Subcontracting the role of charity out to the government does several things:
  • it creates a bureaucracy that - by its very nature - diverts funds from the needy to sustain itself,
  • it makes fraud vastly more easy, by both cheating recipients and corrupt apparatchiks,
  • it removes the personal contact between donor and recpient which might result in a sense of community,
  • it rewards self-destructive behaviors that cause poverty (illegitimacy, drug abuse, etc.), negating any motivation for recipients to change,
  • it gives more-fortunate people a sop to their conscience that they 'are doing something for the poor' without having to sully themselves with actually doing anything for the poor, and
  • it breeds dependence on government, which - because of the money and power it gives them - is government's primary motivation for promoting the welfare state.

Again, I am agreeing that "all those crony capitalist fat cats" are a problem to America, but it's much more a problem of cronyism than of capitalism - as Whitewater and Solyndra demonstrate as well as Enron. Either way, the socialist (i.e. communist) fat cats are far worse. If you look closely, today's welfare state is being pushed by forces just as greedy and power-mad as any robber baron, yet more hypocritical because they pretend to be 'on the side of angels' and fool so many people into trusting a system that is essentially slavery.

Nobody expects the Hispanophobic Inquisition!

The second-most-obvious difference between the anti-communist witch hunt by McCarthy in the 50s and the pro-communist witch hunt by today's SJW industry is that the anti-communists have a sense of decency that can be called upon.

Bernie Sanders Hair

Inspired by swschrad's comment at Lileks' Bleat.

With an insincere apology to Kim Carnes, (reference video and lyrics )

His head is spherical,
His lips are chapped and bare,
His hands are always cold,
He got Bernie Sanders hair.
He'll keeps on yelling at you;
They won't let you think twice.
He's like Chernobyl snow,
He got Bernie Sanders hair.

And he'll tease you, he'll unease you,
Give away stuff just to please you.
He's atrocious, and he knows just
How to make America unjust.
He got Josef Stalin underwear,
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.

He'll take away your home
And wages (that ain't right).
He wants to claim the throne,
He got Bernie Sanders hair.
He'll sic the taxman on you,
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue.
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.

He'll bulldoze you, when he throws you
To the street. Like a car he tows you.
He's ferocious and he knows just
How to make our businesses rust.
Everybody knows he's unfair,
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.

And he'll tease you, he'll unease you
Give away stuff tryin' to please you.
He's atrocious, and he knows just
How to make America unjust.
He got Josef Stalin underwear,
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.

He'll tease you.
He'll unease you
Tryin' to please you.
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.
We'll expose him
Cause we know him
And oppose him.
He's got Bernie Sanders hair.

Politically Corrupt

Rephrasing an idea from Russ Vaughn at American Thinker:
If it is immoral or criminal for Christian-owned businesses to deny services based on their fundamental beliefs, isn't it also immoral or criminal for governments to refuse their services to the citizens of those states who protect the religious freedoms of their citizenry? Isn't it also immoral or criminal for LGBT groups - based solely on their belief in Political Correctness - to boycott, threaten, and intimidate Christian-owned businesses? Other than scale, I see little difference.

Lileks on Trump

Read it all, but the summary is:
"Trump is... a crass, gutter-tongued, vulgar man whose self-regard blinds his ability to understand his own ignorance. A man who casually encourages the worst, enables the mediocre, and wafts aloft cartoon concepts of American greatness with gusts of flatulent banalities. It takes a certain kind of historical illiterate not to realize his facial postures are literally aping a second-rate Italian fascist."
To be fair, he's still better than Sanders.

How wrong were the Crusades?

Greg Sandlen explains:
"In light of President Obama’s recent remarks comparing the brutality of the Islamic State to the Crusades, it might be time to take a fresh look at those events. Were they really the one-sided Dark Ages barbarism we have been taught? Were they an early manifestation of Western imperialism and global conquest?"
