The Joke(r)'s On U.S.

Has any U.S. president ever assembled such a cabal of n'er-do-wells, tax cheats, terrorist sympathizers, race-baiting/class-dividing hypocrites and anti-Christian "humanist" crusaders as has Obama? Has any president ever done more to dismantle our American, constitutional way of life?

Obama is the ultimate "community organizer" (aka "revolutionary"). He uses the strategies outlined in "Rules for Radicals", a tome written by Obama's mentor, Saul Alinsky, who dedicated the book to no less than Lucifer himself.

Got that?

I've seen ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in Obama's character or accomplishments that could even remotely be characterized as "Christian" -- or even moral. (As an Illinois state senator, the guy voted -- twice! -- to deny life-saving health care to babies born alive after botched abortions!) Yet this man, by most accounts, still walks on water in the eyes of the news media and his sycophantic supporters (pardon the redundancy).

During the last century, a cast of evil "messianic" characters installed themselves and their cronies in power by utilizing the strategies now employed by Obama and his ilk. Promising "utopia", they delivered tyranny by suppressing dissension, confiscating wealth, limiting rights and subverting laws to further their ends. They rammed their agenda through before the people had time to organize or react. They almost invariably became murderous regimes: Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Pol-Pot.

Now our Democrat "leaders" decry those who protest against Obama's whirl-wind "revolution" by calling these protestors "un-American", "Nazis", "members of the clan", "racists", "evil-mongers", etc. Obama runs totally scripted "townhall" meetings wherein he plants questions and spouts his propaganda unopposed. However, if he truly desired a dialogue, wouldn't he invite the likes of Newt Gingrich to join him on stage to take questions, allowing Gingrich the opportunity to respond with alternative points of view (if any, just like a debate) so that the American people would have the chance to decide which ideas were best?

Of course he wouldn't. Obama doesn't want debate. He wants his opposition to shut up! He knows his arguments for socializing America would be destroyed by facts, history and logic -- if the American people were ever exposed to them.

So everything he does must be done through the "back door": secretly, unilaterally, quickly. No one must be given time to read, or even consider, 1000+ paged bills before they are voted on by Congress. We have seen this time and time again with his administration.

I'm not going to do your homework for you. The evidence is overwhelming. Those who still support Obama's work of nationalizing our auto industry, banking, energy and health care -- in less than seven months! -- are surely blind to the unconstitutional means by which these feats are being accomplished.

I challenge ANYONE to name even one thing Obama has done (or is doing) that is in full compliance with the Constitution. The American people can't even point to a single piece of evidence that incontestably proves Obama to be a natural-born American citizen, let alone cite any constitutional authorization for the multitudinous revolutionary efforts he is making!

America will rue the day it disregarded the U.S. Constitution and placed this man in the Oval Office. He will leave a permanent stain upon the presidency. If not found to be the first "unconstitutionally elected" president, he will certainly be the most "un-American".

Why Faith Without Works Is Dead (Wrong)

As if we didn't need more "proof" of the errant belief that salvation does not depend on works, an evil man walked into a gym yesterday and opened fire on a crowd of women in an arobics class. In justifying his murder spree, he wrote (beforehand): "Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell."

All The Conveniences of Home

One wonders what modern housewives would have done back in the day when apostles like Heber C. Kimball, Brigham Young and the rest of the Quorum left their families for years on end to attend to the ministry.

Today's homemakers are encompassed by a cosmos of conveniences: clothes washers and driers, dish washers, water heaters and microwave ovens, refrigerators and freezers, mixers and blenders, toasters and can openers, steam cleaners and vacuum cleaners -- not to forget pre-packeaged meals, running water and in-home natural gas fuel. For entertainment and communication they have cable TV and telephone, Internet and cellphone, Facebook, MySpace, email and Twitter, Ebay and Craigslist, plus the "antiquated" technology of radio, CDs and DVDs. For groceries they've got Costco and Sam's Club, Albertson's and Stater Bro.'s, Fresh & Easy, WinCo, Walmart and Walgreens. And if they mow the lawn, fix the plumbing, or paint (like Lisa Macavinta and Stephanie Scoville) they've got The Home Depot and Lowes to go to.

The days of harnassing the horse and hitching the wagon are over. We don't even do diapers anymore. Today's "Polly Pioneer" sits in a cushy, air conditioned seat, sticks the little metal thingee into the little hole thingee, turns it slightly and away she goes! No more packing meals or getting filthy along the way. Clowns and royalty do all the cooking now. With a little supervision, most children can be taught to clean and tidy an entire house, more or less, before they're eight years old. And there's this thing called "automatic bill pay".

So what's a modern "Martha Stewart" to do?

A hundred years ago, when Sister Long-Suffering wanted a chicken dinner for her kids and kin, she first fetched the ax. Then she chased the hen around the pen, caught it, killed it...and perhaps chased it again. Once she got her "dinner" under control, she blanched and boiled it, plucked it, then baked, roasted or fried it in a wood-fired stove (with wood she first had to chop) that heated the house to the likes of Hades. If there were beans to eat, she picked then processed them. If potatoes were available, she skinned, boiled and mashed them. From the cow (if she had one) she squeezzed milk to churn butter. From the hive (a luxury) she fetched honey. For gravy she skimmed the drippings, but only after she harvested and ground the wheat to make the flour for the bisquets.

It took all day to make one dinner. Needless to say, Sister Long-Suffering didn't bother with the Atkins diet or going to the gym. Today she sends Brother Never-Does-Enough to fetch KFC and remarks, when he returns home, food in hand, in 15 minutes, "Well, that didn't take long!"

No, indeed, it didn't.

One wonders what Sister Long-Suffering would do if she were cast down to present-day Guatemala or back into the America frontier of yesteryear.

I imagine she'd die of exhaustion or starvation (rather than boredom and self-pity).
