CNN LIES AGAIN! Falsifies Hurricane Irma “Records”

I am SERIOUSLY doubting CNN’s “Worst Hurricane Ever” sales pitch. Sounds to me like they’re either trying to win the Most Over-Sensationalized Reporting of the Year Award or simply trying to keep what few viewers are left.
 
But let’s look at some of these so-called “statistics:”
 
1. Strongest Atlantic basin hurricane ever recorded outside the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea…
 
Irma had maximum sustained winds of 185 mph and a barometric pressure of 914 hPa (lower is stronger). While strong indeed, hurricanes CNN Irma LiesWilma, Gilbert, “Labor Day”, and Allen beat Irma, both in terms of sustained wind speeds and lower (stronger) pressure. Allen (August 5-9, 1980) was the strongest with 195 mph winds and a pressure of just 899 hPa.
 
As for strongest ever, that record belongs to 2015’s Patricia, at 200 mph winds and 880 hPa.
 
2. Longest Category 5 hurricane since satellite storm-tracking began…
 
Perhaps, but “Cuba” (November 5-8, 1932) beat Irma’s 75 hours, coming in at 78 hours as a Category 5 storm.
 
3. No storm on record has maintained winds 185 mph or above for as long as Irma’s 37 hours.
 
Perhaps true, but this is a REALLY obscure fact, and would require pouring over tons of raw and minute data not generally reported to the public.
 
4. It prompted the largest evacuation in the history of the Bahamas, and potentially the largest in the US.
 
Ok, first of all, the Bahamas has never had so many inhabitants as it does today, nor so many with the means to leave, so, DUH.CNN Irma Lies
 
Second, while 6.3 million people were ordered to evacuate, “The low estimates for the actual number of evacuees is 700,000 people” (Source: Boston Globe)
 
So, call it 1 million people who ACTUALLY evacuated.
 
Well, gee, you can order 30 million people to evacuated, but that’s not a “record.” Records are set by how many people actually evacuated, and that number looks to be roughly 1 million.
 
So, NO RECORD THERE…
 
5. 1.3 million people without power…
 
On July 13-14, 1977, 9 million people experienced a power outage in New York City. Hell, hurricane Sandy knocked power out to roughly 8 million people.
 
UPDATE (20170911-1630 hrs EDT):  The news is now saying “millions without powers” and refuses to specify numbers.  Technically, “million” is anything over 1 million.  However, I see they now added, “nearly 6 million people are without power.”  Ok, that’s substantial, and commensurate with the fact Iram stretched beyond both Florida’s east and west coasts while raking it south to north.  However, New York still has ’em beat.
Again: NO RECORD.
 
6. 15 feet of maximum storm surge…
 
“Katrina’s powerful right-front quadrant passed over the west and central Mississippi coast, causing a powerful 27-foot (8.2 m) storm surge…”
UPDATE (20170911-1630 hrs EDT):  News agencies are now saything that while a storm surge of 10 to 15 feet was projected, that the storm surge was “nowhere near that bad.”  So, what was it?  Seven feet?  Eight?
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
7. 185 mph top strength…
 
NOPE! Tied with Wilma, Gilbert, and “Labor Day”, but beat by Allen.
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
8. “95% of all buildings that Irma damaged when it hit Barbuda…”
 
Sorry, CNN, but damage to small islands enroute to the U.S. does not count. I really don’t care how many huts were blown down.
 
As for damage to Florida’s buildings, it looks like nearly all the buildings designed to withstand hurricane-force winds…
 
…actually withstood hurricane force winds.
 
Again: NO RECORD.
 
Was Irma big? Yes. Was it fast? Yes. Did it cause significant storm surge? Yes.
 
But it wasn’t the biggests, fastest, floodiest hurricane on record, nor will it be the most expense. Nothing will top Katrina’s $108 billion price tag, although Sandy and Harvey came within $40 billion of doing so.
 
CNN, you’re caught LYING YOUR ASS OFF yet again!
Meanwhile, ABC’s news report, Hurricane Irma, By the numbers, is a far more appropriate piece of journalistic integrity.

Tiny Homes

I have longed to get out from underneath the exorbitant rent of an apartment and get into either a good, comfortable home that will appreciate in value, or into a good, comfortable tiny home that costs less than 10% of a good, comfortable home.

Here’s the best one I’ve seen so far:

Pros:

  • Great openness/lighting with glass on both sides
  • Outstanding kitchen sink, prep, and cooking area, including full-sized refrigerator
  • Outstanding bathroom/wash area

Cons:

  • Loft area can get hot throughout a sunny day
  • Dining area benches would be hard.  I prefer comfortable soft chairs
  • The entire unit looks to be seriously heavy

In the future, I will be examining more tiny homes, but for now, keep dreaming!

Oath of Office in the United States of America

One’s oath of office is not to be taken lightly. It forms the cornerstone upon which our Constitution, “the supreme Law of the Land,” sustains our nation.
The United States of America has seven federal uniformed services that commission officers as defined by Title 10, and subsequently structured and organized by Title 10, Title 14, Title 32 and Title 42 of the United States Code.
 
The seven uniformed services are defined by 10 U.S.C. § 101(a)(5):
 
The term “uniformed services” means—
(A) the armed forces;
(B) the commissioned corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; and
(C) the commissioned corps of the Public Health Service.
 
The five uniformed services that make up the United States Armed Forces are defined in the previous clause 10 U.S.C. § 101(a)(4). The term “armed forces” means the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
 
As a member and commissioned officer of the United States Armed Forces, specifically the U.S. Air Force, I took the following oath of office in 1989:
 
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
One’s oath of office contains no expiration date.  Like my commission, conferred on me by President George H. W. Bush in 1989, my oath of office never expires.
 
Four other groups of people take precisely the same oath: Law enforcement officers, civil officers, judges and Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the President of the United States of America.
 
The oath of office for law enforcement officers and civil officers, including every executive, legislative, and judicial officer, regardless of whether they serve at the local, county, state, or federal level, is the same as that for the federal uniformed services.

Furthermore, each justice or judge of the United States takes an additional oath commensurate with their special authority, specifically, the following oath or affirmation before performing the duties of his office:

“I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ___ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.” – 28 U.S. Code § 453 – Oaths of justices and judges

Finally, the President of the United States of America:

“Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” – Article II, Section 1, Constitution for the United States of America

As to what all this means, how and why one’s adherence to one’s oath of office is the glue of loyalty which holds our nation together, merely type “oath of office” into the Search window on this website.  🙂

The short version, however, is that when everyone in a position of authority who takes an oath of office actually follows their oath of office, including taking the steps to ensure they know the U.S. Constitution through and through, as well as all application local, county, state, federal, and military law germain to their duty and position of responsibility, then you have a country that is united behind a single, common, purpose, standing firm on a 200+ year old foundation of law respected around the world.

There is no firmer nor finer place to be.

Why FEMA is a Failure

Why FEMA is a failure:
 
Here’s what worries me most: “Pelosi said, adding that she is worried about Trump’s proposed cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in his fiscal year 2018 federal budget. “You can’t do that,” Pelosi said, adding that the issue will be on the table when Congress reconvenes in just a few days.”
 
With a $13.9 billion budget, FEMA is one of the most overpaid, under-capable organizations on the planet. People need WATER about everything else, yet FEMA utterly failed the people of New Orleans.
 
The Army and Army National Guard was primed and ready to begin delivering bottled water, trucked in ahead of the storm by Walmart, via Chinook helicopter before the winds died down.
 
They were told, “No. Stand down. Let FEMA handle it.”
 
In less than 3 days, Air Force personnel had landed at Moissant (New Orleans’ International Airport) and begun clearing the runways for subsequent deliveries of water, food, and medical supplies, as well as any number of volunteers. The runway was cleared by the 4th day.
 
They were told, “No. Stand down. Let FEMA handle it.”
 
On the 5th day after all winds had subsided, FEMA finally their crap together and begin delivering water in chincy civilian helicopters that couldn’t haul but about 800 lbs. A CH-47D Chinook hauls about 25,000 lbs. A C-130 can haul 45,000 lbs. A C-17 can haul 170,900 lbs. That’s 20,000 gallons of water, including dunnage and bottling. That’s enough for 5,000 people for 5 days.
 
The U.S. military was absolutely chomping at the bit to get water to the people. Instead we were watching them DIE of dehydration.
 
But no. They were told, “No. Stand down. Let FEMA handle it.”
 
Although President Trump recently appointed Brock Long, a well-qualified and experienced leader, he is grossly saddled and overburdened by laws created by Congress who think they know how to and need to legislate every contingency FEMA might encounter, and how he should respond.
 
The days of the old Civil Defense system were FAR more capable of responding to natural disasters. In fact, the “Cajun and Texan Navies” did PRECISELY what the old Civil Defense system was all about: Protecting and rescuing the people, from the lowest level on up. In 1954, the United States held its first nation-wide civil defense drill, where over 12 million Americans “died” in a mock nuclear attack.
 
It was a huge success.
 
The U.S. Federal Civil Defense Administration was organized by Harry Truman on December 1, 1950 through Executive Order 10186, and became an official government agency via the Federal Civil Defense Act of 1950 on 12 January 1951. It’s gone through some changes, eventually arriving at FEMA.
 
The major problem with FEMA is that the mindset is mostly top-down. Yes, they do work with cities and states to help them develop their own disaster preparedness programs. However, is there any emphasis on including We the People in those programs like we did during the 1950s?
 
No. And therein lies the problem.
 
We the People are BY FAR your largest workforce in times of any disaster or emergency. Private citizens outnumber police, fire, and rescue by more than 1,000 to 1. The “professionals” can sweat the small stuff, everything from a house fire to an airliner crash, but they are absolutely, utterly overwhelmed when major disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, and forest fires sweep through inhabited areas.
 
We the People are your FIRST RESPONDERS, not police, fire, and rescue. When seconds count, We the People are there, while the second responders are minutes away. In large disasters, it’s more like hours, and even days away.
 
I’m not saying we don’t need police, fire, and rescue, along with local, county, state, and federal EM (emergency management) people. We absolutely do!
 
What I am saying is that if they’re focusing on using only paid personnel in their response force, their cutting their available resources by at least 90%.
 
Out of 325 million Americans, not everyone is well-suited for rescue work. In fact, most people aren’t. 24% of us are under 18, while 15.2% are 65 and older. That leaves 197,600,000 available American Adults.
 
Even so, if the ratio of We the People to PFR+EM is 1,000 to 1, but only 10% of We the People (19,760,000) have various types of rescue training management experience under emergency or combat conditions, then that’s still 100 to 1. But let’s say you’re wanting to ensure only the best of the best civilians augment your forces, that only 1% of We the People are capable of successfully augmenting professional Emergency Managers.
 
Then that select 1% of We the People STILL outnumber PFR+EM personnel by 10 to 1. That’s still 1.98 million highly skilled, well-trained augmentees available for use, and we live EVERYWHERE. We are in every town, city, county, and state in the union. I dare say there’s at least one of us in every neighborhood, or at least nearby.
 
Thus, PFR+EM personnel should make a concerted effort to identify and USE those augmentees during natural disasters.
 
But what happened during the Waldo Canyon Fire? Nothing. They evacuated everyone (sensible), but then posted guards at all entrances, keeping people out for days, and in some areas, weeks.
 
Not a very smart move. While I understand the concerns about looting, if you’d simply let everyone back in, we can defend ourselves, thank you very much.

Obama Voters – Treason or Stupidity?

After reviewing the Constitution’s definition of treason (Article III, Section 3), as well as Obama’s record of treasonous acts against the United States of America alongside the tenets of Complicity Law, I realized there is only one legal, sane, rational conclusion to be reached, here:
Those who voted for Obama are either complicit in his treason or they’re sublimely stupid, in which case they shouldn’t be voting at all.

There’s no middle ground, here, people!  No wiggle room.  All possible categories can be boiled down to the following five:

  1. You were fully cognizant of Obama’s treason and voted for him anyway, in which case you were fully complicit in his treason.
  2. You were somewhat aware of Obama’s treason but voted for him anyway, in which case you were at least partially complicit in his treason, but you were also either lazy, stupid, treasonous yourself (or some combination thereof) because you were somewhat aware that something nefarious was afoot yet you failed to exercise your due diligence as a voter to determine whether Obama had committed treason or not.
  3. You weren’t aware of Obama’s treason, in which case you were undoubtedly either voting for him for no other reason than he was a Democrat, black, or both (willfully ignorant), and/or you were drinking the liberal Kool-Aid* of the mainstream media (unknowingly being kept ignorant).  Regardless, either way you were completely and utterly stupid.
*”Drinking the Kool-Aid” refers to the 1978 Jonestown Massacre, where the phrase suggests that one has mindlessly adopted the dogma of a group or leader without fully understanding the ramifications or implications.
At this point, one might ask, “Is it really treason to knowingly vote for someone who committed treason?

ABSOLUTELY.
Here’s why:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” – Article III, Section 3, U.S. Constitution
Thus, if someone joins ISIS or al Qaeda, fighting alongside them against U.S. troops, that’s treason.
When someone holds fast to, gives support, or maintains loyalty to an enemy of America, that’s “adhering.”  That’s treason.
When someone provides “beans and bullets,” logistical support (transportation), intelligence (spying), or refuge, that’s “aid and comfort.”  That’s treason.
But what about when a person doesn’t directly engage in these activities themselves, but merely votes for a treasonous person or supports them monetarily or in some other way?
Great question!  Let’s look at what the law has to say about this:
 
Complicity in criminal law refers to when someone is legally accountable, or liable for a criminal offense, based upon the behavior of another. Criminal complicity may arise in the following situations.  With the intent to promote or assist the commission of the offense:
 
1. a person procures, induces or causes such other person to commit the offense; or
 
2. a person aids or abets such other person in committing the offense; or
 
3. having a legal duty to prevent the commission of the offense, a person fails to make an effort he is legally required to make.
As you review both the U.S. Constitution’s definition of treason and Complicity law side by side, you will see that the Constitution included complicity in it’s definition.  In fact, the Constitution contains three phrases of treason in its definition, yet only the first one addresses open acts of war or aggression against the United States.  The second and third phrases directly address complicity, those things people do to help America’s enemies.  Thus, “the supreme Law of the Land” considers complicity in a citizen to be just as much treason as when a citizen levies war against the United States itself.
Let’s review these three elements of complicity one by one to see what such acts of complicity might entail:
1. a person procures, induces or causes such other person to commit the offense; or
The Democrat Party procured Obama as a candidate.  Either they, George Soros, corrupt politicians, or some combination thereof induced or otherwise caused Obama to commit his many acts of treason, either monetarily, by means of party pressure, offering political “guidance,” feeding him incorrect information, exchanging political favors, or providing promises of some future reward.  Regardless of the means, Obama remains fully guilty of all offenses of treason.
2. a person aids or abets such other person in committing the offense; or
 
This category includes all Obama voters, along with those who made contributions to the Democrat party or Obama’s election in the form of money or value, and even the hourly efforts of those who worked in various party offices, organized meetings, created Obama buttons, or campaigned door to door.  But it also includes those who carried out Obama’s orders, knowing they violated the U.S. Constitution.
3. having a legal duty to prevent the commission of the offense, a person fails to make an effort he is legally required to make.
Most of Congress falls into this gaping hole.   I say “most,” because nearly all Democrats fell lock-step behind Obama in his many illegal and sometimes treasonous actions.  Furthermore, a number of Republicans did, as well.  As such, they are equally guilty of treason.   On top of that, every aid, administrative assistant, attorney, cabinet head, and White House staffer who blinked and did nothing to stop Obama’s treasonous actions is complicit.  This is really where the oath of office comes into play.  When a military, law enforcement, or civilian officer (executive, legislative, judicial) agrees to “solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…” they are committing themselves, their persons, to one of the highest and most noble causes in our nation, to serve our country.  The oath of office isn’t a formality.  It forms the cornerstone of our duty, our loyalty to our nation above and beyond any loyalty to anyone or anything else.
Since complicity requires “intent to promote or assist the commission of the offense,” the ONLY defense under complicity law against treason for those who voted for Obama involves being too STUPID to know what he was up to.
However, there’s no such defense under the United States Constitution, as it doesn’t differentiate between “knowingly” and “unknowingly.”  It assumes, and rightly so, that this is serious enough stuff that people aren’t going to take it lightly, that they’re going to exercise caution and due diligence to make dang sure they don’t cross the line.  Only someone who is either knowingly complicit or really stupid would ever cross that line, hence the reason why I use the term “Demoncraps.”  If they were knowingly complicit in Obama’s treason, then they’re demonically opposed to the United States.  If the were just too stupid to know the difference…
Demonically opposed + stupid as shit = Demoncraps

Islamic Terrorism, and Snakes on a Plane

“Enough is ENOUGH!  I have had it with these motherfucking [Islamic terrorism] snakes on this motherfucking plane!  Everybody strap in.  I’m about to open some fucking windows.”

Neville Flynn, Snakes on a Plane

“The Islamic State Group claimed responsibility for the attack via their Amaq News Agency.  Catalan Police have confirmed the incident is a terror attack.” – Source
 
Many people worldwide think it’s long past time time to implement a new 1,000 to 1 policy for Islamic terrorism. If Islamic terrorism kills 12 innocent civilians, the People of this World will summarily execute 12,000 people associated with Islamic terrorism, beginning with that terrorist’s immediate and extended family, spreading throughout the Islamic terrorism cell, to any and all known and related Islamic terrorism cells within that Islamic terrorism organization. If the 12,000 number has not yet been reached, move on, beginning with known terrorist cells of the same religion, and so on.
 
You might want to start at Gitmo, or did Obama release ALL of those Islamic terrorism prisoners back into their fight against the U.S.?
 
Seriously. After dealing with this Islamic terrorism crap for 1,400 years, it has become abundantly clear the only way to eradicate Islamic terrorism from the human gene pool is to kill them all, then burn their books, papers, mosques, homes, villages, and even entire cities to the ground, into rubble.
 
Just to be “fair,” though, we ought to give them “fair warning:” At the very next attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke ONE city randomly chosen from all cities throughout the entire world containing two-thirds or more Muslims and containing a population within the top one-third of all such cities. At the SECOND terrorist attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke FORTY such cities, including Mecca. At the THIRD terrorist attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL nuke ALL cities throughout the world containing more than two-thirds Muslims, starting with the most populated and continuing down the list until an official Islamic delegation promises the world that there will NEVER be another Islamic terrorist attack anywhere in the world EVER again, or until the list is complete.  Should the promise be broken with another attack even remotely attributable to Islamic terrorism, we WILL continue down that list.
 
I think our world would be MUCH better off with a little more radiation than continuing to suffer incessant attacks and threats of attacks at the hands of Islamic terrorism.
 
While this sounds drastic, evidently God himself thought precisely the same thing when he commanded the jews to kill everyone in certain tribes:
 
“In 1 Samuel 15:2-3, God commanded Saul and the Israelites, “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’ ” “
 
God ordered similar things when the Israelites were invading the promised land (Deuteronomy 2:34; 3:6; 20:16-18).
 
Why would God have the Israelites exterminate an entire group of people, women and children included?
 
Unlike us, God knows the future. God knew what the results would be if Israel did not completely eradicate the Amalekites. If Israel did not carry out God’s orders, the Amalekites would come back to trouble the Israelites in the future.
 
Saul claimed to have killed everyone but the Amalekite king Agag (1 Samuel 15:20). Obviously, Saul was lying—just a couple of decades later, there were enough Amalekites to take David and his men’s families captive (1 Samuel 30:1-2). After David and his men attacked the Amalekites and rescued their families, 400 Amalekites escaped.
 
If Saul had fulfilled what God had commanded him, this never would have occurred.
 
Several hundred years later, a descendant of Agag, Haman, tried to have the entire Jewish people exterminated (see the book of Esther). So, Saul’s incomplete obedience almost resulted in Israel’s destruction. God knew this would occur, so He ordered the extermination of the Amalekites ahead of time.
 
By the way, “Haman’s lineage is given in the Targum Sheni as follows: “Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, son of Srach, son of Buza, son of Iphlotas, son of Dyosef, son of Dyosim, son of Prome, son of Ma’dei, son of Bla’akan, son of Intimros, son of Haridom, son of Sh’gar, son of Nigar, son of Farmashta, son of Vayezatha, (son of Agag, son of Sumkei,) son of Amalek, son of the concubine of Eliphaz, firstborn son of Esau”.

Do you think it’s time to finish the job?  If so, write your governmental representatives and make you thoughts known.  Demand action!
 

LGBTQ – Should We ‘Live and Let Live’ or Should We Stand Firm?

A friend of mine stated this morning on Facebook, “As for the LGBTQ crowd, I have a ‘Live and Let Live’ policy.  We all should follow that.”
I’m sorry, my friend, but I follow God of the Bible, and Jesus Christ, who showed us the way. In particular, with the adulteress at the well, he loved her (saved her from being stoned to death, no less!), but he did not allow her to persist in her sin: “Go, and sin no more.” Our Bible: “Male and female he made them,” yet the LGBTQ crowd wants us to believe there are a dozen or more genders? Phooey. I do not accept that because God’s word says that’s false.  It also says homosexuality is a sin, an “abomination before the Lord” in Romans chapter 1, clear as day.  Unless, apparently, you’re blinded by sin.
 
I accept the Bible.
 
Along with the Bible, I also accept the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”
 
In highlighting and denouncing the sins of this small segment of society who demands that We the People pay for their elective medical care, I am freely exercising my religion, one which God’s word clearly indicates what we all are to do:
 
“In the first four chapters of 1 Corinthians, Paul introduces a shameful problem in the church. The Corinthians proudly attach themselves to certain leaders, whose teaching seems to disclose a “wisdom” not known or taught by other teachers, and certainly not by Paul or his fellow-apostles. These cliques and factions are undermining the unity of the church and are a denial of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In chapters 5 and 6, Paul calls attention to two other problems plaguing the church: immorality and lawsuits.
 
“Chapter 5 is not actually about the immorality of one church member, as much as it is about the pride and passivity of the entire church in response to this sinner. It is not until the end of chapter 6 (verses 12-20) that Paul exposes the evil of immorality.”
 
“Live and let live” is a secular — and sinful — approach to the problem, which is the fact that that the LGBTQ group not only wants everyone to adopt the “live and let live” mentality towards them, but they want us to believe that it’s somehow good.
 
It is not good. Adultery is not good. LGBTQ is not good. Abortion is not good. Murder is not good. They are ALL SIN.  Not only does the Bible state, “hate that which is evil; cling to that which is good,” but I refuse to allow my tax dollars to pay for evil i.e. their indulgence in sin.
 
“Live and let live?” Phooey! That’s how Rome fell. I worked too hard supporting and defending my Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic to allow America to fall to either class of enemies, especially while being being aided and abetted by foolish Americans who are suckered into a “live and let live” attitude, much less an, “Oh, let’s help them!” attitude.
 
No.
 
True, this is America, and people are free to sin against themselves and god it they want to, even with other consenting adults. If they want to engage in evil, then they can damned well create pools of funds out of their own pockets to pay for their sin, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to allow them to further their evil with my tax dollars or parade their sin around our nation’s public schools as “good” when God Himself says “sin is evil.”
 
That’s not only foolishness, but it’s how countries fall, how they are rotted from within.
 
Not on my watch.
