Selective Forced Tolerance

Selective Forced Tolerance
Kevin Bryant
Should there be a law forcing a Muslim caterer to serve pork at a Christian wedding reception? Should there be a law forcing a black baker to make a cake with “White Supremacy” written on it for a KKK celebration? Should there be a law forcing Catholic nurses to “volunteer” 10 hours a week of their time to work in an abortion clinic? Should there be a law forcing a gay musician to play at a Westboro Baptist Church tent revival? Of course everyone reading this said “NO” to each of the 4 questions I posed to you. Our constitution gives us the freedom to object and reject these ridiculous demands. Or does it? 

Christian bakers have been forced “by law” to bake cakes for gay weddings. Christian photographers have been forced “by law” to take photos at gay weddings. In both cases the baker and the photographer was a small private business owner who believes on religious grounds that marriage is between a man and a woman.  

There are literally hundreds of bakers and photographers who believe that gay and lesbian couples have the right to marry, so why should the ones who don’t be forced to go against their beliefs and participate in something that many others will do? Truth is, they should not be forced and the first amendment to the constitution guarantees their rights to refuse.   

The left wants us to believe that anything and everything traditional Christians believe in is bigotry and racist. But in the left’s world, a Muslim cleric can reject performing a Jewish wedding and that is OK. What is it about our legal system that allows for selective targeting of Christians and Christian beliefs but upholds the beliefs of almost every other religious and atheist sector of America?  

Our courts today have made a mockery of the constitution. Our legislatures have been beating the constitution to death and the courts upheld many of their freedom robbing laws. Our city and state officials feast on our property taxes yet if they can get more tax revenue if there was a strip mall where your house is located, the courts have given them the right to take it over our objections.  

The states of Arizona and Kansas are currently under fire from every left leaning organization in America because they have proposed Freedom of Religion legislation that would block these absurdities that the courts are forcing on people to go against their religous beliefs. So what does the mainstream media do, they do not call them Freedom of Religion Acts. NO, they call them Anti-Gay legislation.  

Why does the left make everything “Anti”? Anti Gay, Anti-Black, Anti-Women, Anti-Tolerant, Anti-Gay, Anti-Everything if it is something that goes against the agenda of the left? How is it the left claims to be “all inclusive” if they discriminate against everything and everyone that disagrees with their agenda? Have you ever heard of the left complaining about the Black Panthers? Never, but you sure hear about them complaining about the KKK. What is the difference between the two except skin color? Ever hear about the left complaining that George Soros gives too much money to the Democratic Party? Nope, but you sure hear about the Koch brothers and all the money they donate to conservatives, and for the record it’s a lot less than what George Soros gives.  

My tolerance for the intolerant left is gone and I will be damned if some court is going to force me to tolerate the bigotry and racist beliefs and actions of the left.

OOPS moments: You know those times you stick your foot in your mouth by saying things that come out different that your intended comment. I have had many of them. OOPS moments can also be when you state something as fact only to find out later it isn’t. I’m guilty again of doing that. No matter that the OOPS moment is, I do go back and correct myself and acknowledge I said something that was incorrect. 

No one I personally know has ever purposely had an OOPS moment. So why is it that liberal commentators and liberal politicians purposely state things that are cruel, degrading and knowingly untrue about others that don’t see eye to eye with them politically? There is a long list of them, Keith Obermann, Melissa Perry-Harris, Chris Mathews, Ed Schultz, Anthony Weiner, Andrew Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi…… this list could go on for forever it seems. 

Do people like these know what they are saying… YES they do. They do it maliciously, they do it for ratings. They do it because the far left they represent want to hear this type of garbage they spit out. They do it because they know it’s going to be believed my many even though they are eventually forced to apologize and retract the statement.  

Even Tina Fey’s SNL portrayal of Sarah Palin and the comment “I can see Russia from my house” line, many on the left believe Sarah Palin actually said it. 

Why can’t the left just tell the truth? Why do they have to attack everyone who disagrees with them? Why do they fall back on personal attacks when those conservatives they are speaking with start talking factual? Why do they constantly play the race card & the gender card? Are these people so narcissistic they actually can’t admit when they are wrong? We have all come to know that our President is a narcissist and will never back down and the left will never say he is wrong about anything. 

Americans are tired of the juvenile mentality of the left. MSNBC’s rating are so low they would not even be on the air if it weren’t  for Comcast absorbing the cost overruns as did the previous owner General Electric. The left needs a media voice and NBC / Comcast is more than willing to give it to them at any cost. NBC used to stand for National Broadcast Company, now it stands for Nothing But Communist. Comcast makes it money from capitalism yet promotes tighter government regulations on every other media outlet to make them more like NBC.  

Americans, above all else want the truth. We want the truth from our government because Americans know they are not getting it. I have more fingers and toes attached to my person than congress has politicians who speak the truth. It used to be if a politician got so much as a DUI they were voted out of office because they did not hold up to their oath to the America people and represent us with honor. Now we have politicians who lie to, cheat and steal from the very people who put them in office and what do they do, they make laws regulating and restraining the people while exempting themselves from the very laws forced upon. AND WE KEEP ELECTING THESE PEOPLE.  

The VERY LAST person I want representing me in congress is a liberal lawyer. Give me a farmer, a small business owner, a rancher, a doctor. Give me people who are educated not in the law but in the people and what is needed for those like them to make it in life. Give me someone who believes laws should be no longer than 2 pages long and written in plain English, not lawyer jibberish. Give me someone who believes people come before the government, not slaves to the government. And above all, give me one that is not afraid to speak the truth. If a politician won’t tell you the truth, he or she knows they are lying and screwing the very people who they were elected to represent and when they lie and screw the people, the people need to screw them by voting them OUT of office.

Dear Patriots:

Dear Patriots:
William Burmer
We live in a peculiar time in history. My wife and I were discussing this subject when we turned to the Bible for some clarification. Found in Isaiah 5:20 our time was prophesied where some would "call evil good, and good evil." Listening to President Obama and his followers brings this prophesy fulfilled in truth and reality.
For the modern Liberal who shuns scripture and God, good and evil are considered value judgments, defined by the individual, in a place where there is no recognized moral standard to judge its' value. This might be a Modern sign of progress, replacing God Laws with moral relativism, over moral self discipline, but fully embraced will eventually leave a person unable to recognize real evil.
While this philosophy in modern society might elevate a person's rights, it avoids any discussion with regards to personal responsibility, or for that of others with whom he or she may have contact. It is a selfish philosophy, destructive not only to the individual so engaged but, most especially the family who is forced to live with it in the home.
Truth is not relative, never has been, never will be, It stands alone and is unchanging, it is the way things really are. Obtaining such knowledge of this definition requires humility, pondering, seeking answers beyond ones' self. Thus the individual soul becomes elevated and accumulates a potential to grow in greater knowledge and understanding.
In contrast personalities such as President Barak H. Obama, who are narcissist, selfish, and egotistical, become lost souls, unwilling to listen, to reason and genuinely react with others, to change or be changed. Their words may be flattering to others, even embraced with enthusiasm by many, however being void of real principle, honesty, lacking integrity, charity, or virtue. In the end their work, and words remain hollow, lacking any lasting intrinsic value they remain a destructive force only.
If we as a society are to avoid the traps of living for the moment, believing a lie, without regards to the future, we must not allow ourselves to be so deceived, but must be willing to, without regards to our circumstances, lay everything we have on the alter to follow true principles, let your conscience be your guide, be willing to choose the right when it is before you regardless of those who point a mocking finger.
Set a standard you are willing to follow and guide you in every aspect of your life, your home, profession, and community. Never make exceptions to these standards, be loyal to your family and loved ones and above all, to your God.
Live so you can feel the Spirit of Christ in your life, serve others, share your knowledge and smile at your mistakes, have a good sense of humor and above all don't complain, It is a fact that life is not fair but a fair amount of enthusiasm can bring about unexpected opportunities for real growth and achievement.
Truth, Good, Evil, these are realities in life of which we must learn to understand, deal with, and live with, not be overwhelmed by. As a Child of God, which you are, He knows you have potentials for goodness, even greatness. These potentials perhaps yet to be discovered are needed more than ever, you can make a difference with Gods' help. America needs Men and Women with Integrity, and faith. Our challenge is to be that person. May God bless you to this end.

Modern Day Slavery

Modern Day Slavery
Kevin Bryant 

Choose a door or window in your home or office and look out. Do you see any people? Do you see any houses? Do you see any businesses? Every person you see, every person that is in the houses you see and the businesses you see are modern day slaves.  

According to the Collins dictionary, slavery is defined as: The state or condition of being a slave; a civil relationship whereby one person has absolute power over another and controls his life, liberty, and fortune. 
What person or entity believes he or they have total control and absolute power over our lives, our liberties and our property? I know, it was an easy question and you are right. The President, the Government at all levels, our police forces and even our unions. They all believe they are the ones in charge and we must trudge along behind them and bow to their every wish, command and whimper.  

The current President and many of his predecessors during our lifetime have written laws and single handedly changed laws with a stroke of a pen. Our senators and representatives constantly pass laws without thought of what the average American thinks. Our local governments, like our federal government spend money hand over fist on themselves and then wonder why they are broke and the people are outraged because city services are reduced, repairs to infrastructure is slow at best and far behind what is needed to be done and yet, just like the federal government, the only answer they have is more taxes and higher fees. Our police force is not off the hook here. How many times is a person charged with obstruction of justice just by recording the police while standing in their own yard? Isn’t that private property? They don’t care. How many times have you heard of police searching a house, finding nothing and when they leave, the house is a mess and $1000’s in damages have occurred? The victim sues, but rarely do they win their case and receive compensation for the damage. Do they have the right to infringe on our liberties? They believe they do because they believe they have the authority granted to them simply by the badge they wear. Then we have the unions. Union leaders make nice salaries. We pay for their houses, their kid’s education, and those nice vehicles they drive. What do we get in return? Usually it amounts to nothing more than a couple of more days off than the non union counterparts. Anyone that believes a union worker makes more than a non union counterpart is fooling themselves. As union salaries go up, union dues go up. Then of course the union takes your money, your property that you worked for, and spends it on politicians, lavish events, retreats that are no more than lavish vacations and anything else they desire. Yet you still have to cough up the dough because they own you. 

Our government spies on us. Our government tells us what and how much we owe it. Our government tells us what we can do and when we can do it. Our government takes our property if we refuse to pay taxes. They tax us if we do not have health insurance. For the first time in history, we Americans are taxed for something we do not have.  

Systematically, Americans have elected those that crave power and yielded their rights and freedoms to the elected. If the liberties lost over the course of the last 50, 100 or so years had hit all of us suddenly, there would be another civil war in the U.S. but no, it has all been gradual. A little freedom here, a little there, and all in the name of security and charity. All we have secured for ourselves is more chains of bondage thrown upon us by our own government in the form of laws, regulations, taxes and fees. 

We have all but completely lost our country, our freedom and our way of life and there is no better example of this than in our religious beliefs. In many places it’s now ILLEGAL to pray in public. It’s ILLEGAL to pray in school. It’s ILLEGAL to display any religious symbol or belief on most “public” property. Public property, now there is a joke. The ACLU has successfully removed Christianity from almost every sector of our lives and confined it to our home and our churches. Of course that is ONLY if you are a Christian. Muslims have free range to do as they please.  

Go back to the top and read the definition of slavery again. Then look in the mirror and ask yourself; Am I A Modern Day Slave? I did and I answered YES.
