‘[Samuel] said, “These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots.’  ~ I Samuel 8: 11

I found myself reassessing my collegiate football loyalties following the embarrassing debacle perpetrated in Miami the Thursday before last.  And, after a great deal of reflection and rumination, I have decided that my interests would best be served by changing my allegiance to OU (or perhaps t.u., depending on how the Sooners’ season unfolds).  Why Oklahoma and t.u.?  It could not be clearer in my opinion that they are the best hopes the Big 12 South Division has of winning the conference championship in December (against Nebraska by all forecasts, though Missouri is a darkhorse). 

The experts (many of whom reside in Vegas and lay odds on this sort of thing for a living), almost to a man, have been adamant that the Aggies don’t have a chance to win the South Division and will be, yet again, relegated to second-tier status.  Therefore, the consensus is that rooting for the Ags is a waste of time and resources.  The Sooners are the only team that stands a chance at beating Nebraska so, the wise move would be to throw my support behind a proven winner. 

Of course, what I have written above is my tongue-in-cheek attempt at illustrating how ridiculous the same argument sounds when others (including the ‘experts’ on t.v.) tell folks such as myself that supporting Ron Paul is a fool’s errand and that I should vote for Frudy McRomney—even though I would be violating my conscience and principles in doing so—because they are the only candidates who stand a chance of beating Hillary!©   

I shall vote for someone of principle who holds my views (or as closely as is possible among fallen men) rather than merely against another.  The lesser of two evils is still evil.  Why should I have my choice of candidate dictated to me?  Why should others be allowed to limit my choices and ridicule—or pity—me because I have the unmitigated gall to support someone other than the media-created and coronated elite who will perpetuate more of the same which I have come to loathe?  As Rev. R. L. Dabney said, when you vote for a man, you are authorising him as your agent—thus, you bear a part of the responsibility for his actions. I won’t be responsible for the actions of the current ‘top-tier’ candidates of any party.  Should Ron Paul fail in his presidential bid, I shall withhold my vote altogether.  It is too precious to me to squander it.

Do you recognise the actor in this commercial

keeping the cold side cold and the hot side hot?

Marie: ‘Do you live here?  It's nice.  Did you decorate it?’
Navin: ‘I got this from the old Cup O' Pizza place before they tore it down.  
That was really good pizza.’
Marie:  ‘This the best pizza in a cup ever.’
Navin:  ‘This guy's unbelievable. He ran the old Cup O' Pizza guy 
out of business.  People come from all over to get this.’
~ The Jerk (1979)

‘In his long-awaited memoir … [Alan] Greenspan, a Republican whose 18-year tenure as head of the US Federal Reserve was widely admired, will also deliver a stinging critique of President George W Bush’s economic policies.
However, it is his view on the motive for the 2003
Iraq invasion that is likely to provoke the most controversy. “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil,” he says.’

To-day’s 1980’s Moment is Brought to You By The Cult:

I fully expect to one day be forced by law to refer to everything by a number.  Apparently coffee is ‘racist.’  (You’re next, half-and-half!!)

‘A newly released study shows the death toll of Iraqis to be 1.2 million. Incredible. How many innocents does that include? How many women and children? Have we gotten sufficient “payback” now? Allegedly, Osama Bin Laden sent a crew of mostly Saudi Arabians to attack the United States and 3,000 people died. We’ve now killed 1.2 million Iraqis and Bin Laden is still posting videos on YouTube. The world is swimming in blood, and still the Religious Right says nothing.’

‘Judaism is also brought into the same generous tent, and reference is made to ‘our Judeo-Christian heritage,’ again an offense to earnest believers. To the truly religious Jew, Christianity is a diversion and a perversion of the true faith and is at best unrealistically weak where it appears most promising for man. For the Christian, Pharisaism, Sadduceeism, and Essenism were departures from Biblical faith, and all the nation was in heresy and apostasy when it crucified Christ. Since then, through Talmudic developments, the theological rift has widened, not diminished. The term ‘Judeo-Christian’ is most commonly used by the adherents of the religion of humanity, who are insistent on reading their religion into both Judaism and Christianity.’ ~ R. J. Rushdoony, Nature of the American System, p. 80.

  1. Jason Alexander and I actually liked the cult in the 80’s. Can you find the song Wallflower for me? I have looked and looked. It sounds a lot like this song – like, I got excited because I thought this was that song. I’m thinkin’ all The Cult stuff sounds pretty much the same.

    Told you I was going to be visiting your blog – better watch out. 🙂
