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.

How DARE Senator Bennet (CO) Send Me Such Flagrant LIES!

I’m going to let Senator Michael Bennet tell the story in his own delusional words.  Here’s his e-mail I received today, July 28, 2017, along with my interleaved comments in red:

Friends,

In a 49-51 vote early this morning, the United States Senate narrowly rejected the Republicans’ latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

It should have never been this close.

You’re right.  It should have been 100-0 defeating the worst piece of legislation to ever have been considered in the halls of Congress.  In fact, in this article, The Balance utterly refutes the false claims of Obamacare (the Affordable (NOT) Health Care Act or “ACA”).  The Balance are home to experts who are here to deliver clear, practical advice to help everyone strengthen their lifelong relationship with money so you can earn more, spend smarter, invest well, and build a more secure future.

After seven years of campaigning to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell forced a vote at 1:30 in the morning, on a bill he introduced only a few hours earlier. He did so without a single hearing to discuss its contents and provide bipartisan input. The process was a disgrace, but the substance was worse.

Strange, Senator Bennet, but for a moment there I thought you were talking about the way your own party shoved Obamacare down America’s throat.  In fact, it’s because of your own underhanded violations that Forbes published this rather enlightening article on the nefarious beginnings of Obamacare.

The last version of the bill would have caused 16 million Americans to lose their health coverage, increased premiums by 20 percent, and plunged the insurance market into turmoil.

Again, Senator Bennet, this is precisely what happened when Obamacare was introduced, forcing people into doing things the government has absolutely ZERO business doing, skyrocketing premiums, plunging the insurance market into turmoil, and forcing tens of millions of people to give up their insurance altogether and pay the fine because Obamacare is WAY too expensive.

This is a far cry from President Trump’s repeated promise of a “terrific” plan that would “cover everyone” at a “small fraction of the cost.”

YOUR Senate came up with this plan, Senator Bennet.  Not President Trump.  Why are you blaming him, again?

In recent weeks, it has become clear that President Trump and Leader McConnell’s only goal was to pass something, anything — regardless of how much it harmed millions of Americans.

YOUR Senate came up with this plan, Senator Bennet.  Not President Trump.  Why are you blaming him, again?

There is no shortage of cynicism in Washington, but this surely ranks near the top. Our country deserves better from its representatives.

Yes, it does, Senator Bennet.  In fact, Colorado deserves WAY better than this incredibly deceptive letter from you.  Here’s an idea:  Let’s vote you OUT of office so we don’t have to put up with your sort of LIES ever again, and replace you with a conservative like we did with Cory Gardner.  How’s that for an idea?

To those who spoke out in recent days, thank you. It made the difference. Your voices helped save health care for millions of Americans.

Yet another LIE from your desk.  The voice of We the People have been speaking out AGAINST (64%) Obamacare for eight years, and that includes in recent weeks.  Obamacare was only preserved because of traitors like McCain and 24 other Republican turncoats VIOLATING the will of We the People.

The fight isn’t over. Our task now is to chart a better course: to abandon political gamesmanship and come together to fix health care so it is more accessible, affordable, and better for families.

Damned straight the fight’s not over, but before we can get healthcare OUT of the hand of the government, we need to get self-serving LIARS like Senator Bennet OUT of the government.

Regardless of whether you support the Affordable Care Act or oppose it, most Coloradans are deeply dissatisfied with our health care system.

No shit, Sherlock, but were NOT “deeply dissatisfied” prior to having the ACA monstrosity known as Obamacare shoved down their throats.

They know it needs major reforms to lower costs, expand coverage, and increase choice. They deserve a health care system worthy of their decency and befitting the wealthiest and most innovative nation on Earth.

We the People know that when we get government OUT of the healthcare business, then the business market will return to its competitive self, re-establishing the low, competitive rates that were acceptable to the market as a whole.

In the days ahead, as we continue with health care and take up tax reform, stay engaged. Don’t accept the dysfunction. Demand that your leaders reflect your decency and common-sense. Insist that they tackle our nation’s challenges with the seriousness they deserve.

I hereby demand you read my remarks in red above, and take quick, positive action by RESIGNING from office, you incompetent, lying HACK.

We can do this if we work together.

Thank you,

Michael

And thank you, Senator Bennet, for continuing to ruin the United States of America by sticking fast with Demoncrap Party nonsense instead of DOING YOUR HOMEWORK and realizing that the Demoncrap Party’s tack on this and many other issues is just that:  Nonsense.

When You’re Attacked…

I cannot identify this particular incident without giving away certain privacy act information.
Here’s what I can say about it:  Whilst I and the rest of my high school youth group were singing songs unto the Lord, a PCP-hopped (VA police revealed evidence) slammed open doors, literally flipped tables from floor level to some 12 foot height and more than 17 feet beyond (I measured it).
Prior to that point, we were all kind of, “Wha…”
We watched as he entered our circle, shouting all sorts of crap against “you people playing your Christian songs,”that he’d had enough, etc.

He had already entered the large worship room, and all of us were on the defensive. We railed against him forcibly entering the room.  Some of us wrestled him to the ground.  Some of us secured the group to hidden corners.  Some of us interacted with 911 services.

ALL of us dealt with this, and while interesting, it was NOT FUN.  So, let’s LEARN from it so that the likelihood of this ever happening again is SO less likely that

Grace People:   Please send your recollections to me.  Thanks.

I will soon publish a conglomerate in a mini-book form, and will make it available to all, provided all parties agree do it, including the perp himself, under Virginia state law.

Otherwise, it will remain a mostly secret based on obscure references.

Here’s a thought, Grace people, let’s stop this crap in the bud.  I was there, helped wrestled this offender to the ground, called 911 repeatedly to elicit help, helped move most people to our churches hidden chambers…

Why haven’t I had a say in this guy’s court hearings?

I was there.  I saw and experienced everything.

Forrest:  (enters the room)…  Pick it up from there..

I’m writing a book, so if you have input, I want to hear from you.

 
Somewhere in Northern Virginia, there was a Christian Youth Fellowship organization…

America’s Greatest Terrorism Threats

According to a Princeton Study using FBI data and reported by GlobalResearch, Islam is not our greatest terrorism threat. Rather, the left-wing extremists surpass that threat by a factor of FOUR.
American Terrorism
 
Meanwhile, right-wing extremists don’t even appear on the chart. People like certain actors who say, “I’m fearful of people with guns!” need to keep that in mind, especially while living in Latino-dense Southern California.  Their terrorist threat level is nearly double that of left-wing extremists, and SEVEN TIMES higher than Islamic extremists.
left-wing terrorism
 The “terrorist threat” from right-wing extremists has to be less than that of the lowest group listed on the chart: Communists. Call it 4%, although it’s probably lower than that.  Even at 4%, however, it’s still SIX TIMES lower than that of left-wing extremists, and more than TEN TIMES lower than that of Latinos.
 
Please present these findings to the next blitheringly idiotic left-wing “journalist” who claims that “right-wingers are our biggest threat.”
 
Our only threat to the left is on intellectual and factual bases.
 
Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I didn’t gather the data. The FBI did. Nor did I conduct the study. Princeton University did.  Have a nice day.

Getting in Shape

I’ve been getting back into cycling. Last week, I finally repaired my flat, bought new tires and tubes, and trued my wheels. Last night I gave my trusty steed a decent, long-overdue, and much-needed cleaning. 🙂
 
In the last week, I’ve done a very short but moderately steep 1-mile trip, along with a longer 2-mile trip.
 
I’m feeling better after each trip!
 
I’m planning on a 13.4 miler tomorrow morning. That may be a bit aggressive for where I am right now, as I’m still running into the breathing side of cardio as my limfac (limiting factor).
 
As the human body regains fitness, it usually encounters shortness of breath as the first sign of a serious lack of fitness. I’ve been there, done that, and overcame it. Unfortunately, I’m back there again. 🙁
 
By limiting dietary intake to healthy foods (lots of water, zero processed foods, zero sugar, balanced carbs and proteins, and healthy fats), while exercising at one’s limerfac (see Note 1, below), one can get move from the shortness of breath limerfac to the cardio or lactic acid limerfac between about one and three weeks.
 
During the shortness of breath, one is seriously out of shape. You climb a long slope of stairs or even a gentle hill and find yourself out of breath. You should by all means consult your doctor if you find yourself at this stage, especially if you’re NOT obese or even carrying around more than a few extra pounds, as it could indicate a serious underlying health condition that no amount of exercise will cure.
 
If medically cleared, as you progress in your twice-daily (see Note 2, below) cardio routine, 4-5 times per week (see Note 3, below), you will quickly find yourself recovering your ability to breath while exercising. Between one and three weeks on this regimen, you will no longer be out of breath, but will begin running up against either heart rate or lactic acid buildup as your limerfacs. If you’ve been out of shape for a while, and you’re performing both a good, five to ten-minute warming and slow but steadily progressively more intense you’ll usually hit a heart rate maximum before you encounter a lactic acid maximum during this phase. If you’ve been out of shape for a short time, you might find yourself hitting a lactic acid ceiling, instead.
 
Either way, the good news is that you’re “over the hump.” You’re now in shape to… get in shape. I know this sounds backwards, but, quite literally, when you’re out of shape, you’re in a slow but steady downward spiral. No amount of medication, rest, diet, nutrition, or whatever is going to get you over that hump.
 

Speaking of which, strength training doesn’t involve a “hump.” Progressive training with weights might feel like there’s a “hump” involved, but it’s often due to the fact that weightlifters are on a tight enough schedule so as to experience “aerobic weight lifting,” wherein they progress between stations at a rate fast enough to stimulate their aerobic conditioning response.

ACR.  That’s MY term, not anyone else’s.  Yes, I’ve read the books.  No, I’m not an “exercise physiologist.”  I am well aware, however, that many of the studies leading into the modern acceptance of what’s “fit” involved test subjects who were well below today’s 50th percentile in terms of BMI.  In fact, the early studies weren’t out to test obesity, much less various fitness levels thereof.  Instead, they were out to test minimum, normal (statistically speaking) and maximum levels of performance for a particular height and weight range involving what had previously been determined as being acceptable for test pilots.

Here’s the truth:  Back as early as the 1930s, we began minimizing human weights in the testing and calculations in order to achieve the best results.  I’m not going to bore you with the immediately verifiable results of 90 years of research, experimentation, and results, but the fact remains:  Small females can withstand more G’s while remaining capable over longer periods of time of tracking more targets and eliminating the same than even the most prolific “HOO-RAH!” male.

We’re not talking about hand-to-hand-combat, here.  We’re talking about tapping into our own genetic structure which evolution has selected what works best to preserve the outcome, and why.

In the case of female pilots, well, they really rock shit.  Better multitasking (but only somewhat), Greater G-force resistance (but only somewhat).

If some God appointed me the general extraordinaire, with an edict that all freedom-hating groups be extinguished as soon as possible…

Well… Damned.  That’s tough.

However, here’s what I’d do:

Send all aviators to combat the threat (regardless of gender – they signed up and trained, etc. – this issue was buried in the 1990s, or so I thought).

 
one will progress through shortness of breath as the limiting exertion factor, then max heart rate, and finally, lactic acid. With dedication, riding hard for half an hour at least every other day while, it only takes a week or two for you to transition between shortness of breath to heart rate as your limiting exertion factor.
 
We’ll see how I feel at the 5 mile point. That’s up a steep hill, down a mild hill, and up another mild hill. Easy ride home from there.
 
If I feel fine, plenty of energy and wind, I’ll continue for a loop around Garden of the Gods. Once I begin that, however, I’m committed, as I’ll have to add down a steep hill, up a very steep hill, down a steep hill, and up a steep hill, along with 8.4 miles to my distance.

Did Linkin Park have a change in heart, if not faith?

I find both Linkin Park’s music and lyrics to be substantially changed in this song as compared to their previous ones.
I’ve asked several friends from college involved in the Christian music scene what they think.  I’ll report back here, discretely, with what they find.  Meanwhile, the lyrics of a lot of breakthrough Christian bands have been brought to mind.
Lyrics here (courtesy of Google Lyrics, Linkin Park, The Catalyst):

Liberals and Democrats – What’s REALLY Wrong with Libtards and Demoncraps?

Ok, what’s REALLY wrong with Libtards and Demoncraps? (Liberals and Democrats)
 
Idealism. These two categories of people, largely overlapping, have replaced any sense of reality for what they would like reality to be. Raised on Hollywood, they think that if they just believe hard enough, it’ll come to pass, and when it doesn’t, we find them rioting in the streets.
 
REAL MEN defend God, Country, Community, Family, and Selves, in that order (or reordered, as immediately necessary), against any and all threats to this hierarchy we know as government, and specifically in the case of the United States of America, our Republic (says so in both the U.S. Constitution as well as in all 50 State Constitutions).
 
To that end, God allowed REAL MANKIND (this includes women) to develop the tools we need to defend ourselves, including all manner of “arms” as provided for in our Second Amendment (knives, firearms, swords, spears, etc.), and as written by REAL MEN.
 
We the People call these REAL MEN our Founding Fathers.
 
Libtards and Demoncraps are the result of overly exuberant mental conditioning, what happens when a potential libtard’s idealistic tendencies are stretched so far that their psyche snaps it’s last hold on reality.5
