[An article describes how Italian Jews are having trouble finding rabbis willing to let them perform their uniquely Italian traditions due to the influence of Ashkenazi Orthodoxy.]

A lot of this so-called Italian tradition is only a century or so old, and is just a mixture of assimilation and ignorance. American Orthodoxy had the same problem in the first half of the 20th century.

[...]

Even if [...] halachic observance was often quite weak among Italian Jews, that does not mean that laxity in observance became the minhag [tradition] of Italian Jewry! Laxity in observance is not a minhag, regardless of how widespread it becomes.

Quote# 108204

I invite you to join many Christians around the nation in praying today as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments over the power of states to define marriage between one man and one woman.

#PrayForMarriage is more than a prayer for legal victory (though it isn’t less). It’s a prayer for a cultural renewal, for awakening from the toxic slumber of the Sexual Revolution and awareness that marriage and family are gifts from a Creator and not social constructions to be bended at will. #PrayForMarriage isn’t about the Left vs. the Right. It’s not about who is elected where. It’s about the need for children to be born into a society that values them enough to give them a mother and a father.

The Supreme Court’s power is significant, but it is limited to legal recognition. The Court cannot “redefine” marriage any more than the Court can establish the three-fifth personhood of slaves or the non-personhood of the unborn. What the Court can do is codify legal recognition of truths–or untruths. #PrayForMarriage isn’t a hand-wringing exercise in which our hope for marriage or future generations is pinned on the consensus of nine people. As Russell Moore says, “Marriage is resilient.” It’s not man-made and therefore cannot be man-unmade.

Perhaps you are a supporter of same-sex marriage. Perhaps you find it intolerable that anyone would suggest that two men or two women cannot get married. My challenge for you is this: Listen to the arguments themselves. Expand your perspective to include thousands of years of human civilization and legal history. Don’t dismiss those you disagree with as “homophobes.” Some might be, but many aren’t, and their voices are learned and should be heard.

Perhaps you are a Christian who thinks this entire debate is unnecessarily divisive and unfortunate. Perhaps you wish we could get back to loving our neighbors and caring for the poor and not talk about same-sex marriage anymore. My challenge for you is this: Think of future generations. Think of people who will come after you’ve gone. Imagine a culture which by its legal system holds the union of a mother and a father in contempt and declares it irrelevant to the modern mind and unnecessary to the well-being of a child. Surely this is worth striving for. The gulf between compassion and conviction may not be as wide as you think; in fact, they may be one and the same.

Let us pray that our nation would value all life. Let us pray that our law would privilege those with the smallest voice and the greatest stake. Let us pray that the cornerstone of culture would be honored not only in the Supreme Court but in churches and communities and living rooms across our land.

Pray for marriage today.

I know feminist women get angry at even the thought that the woman who was raped might be at fault in the least way; but the truth is that she was in part to blame if she was dressed provocatively in the presence of a group of men. I'm not saying that sluts get what they deserve; but I am saying that women who dress like sluts may be attacked and gang raped because they created lasciviousness (immoral sexual desire) in the hearts of evil men. You never know what someone else is thinking, especially a stranger. Rape has existed since the creation of mankind and will never go away. Women who think they can dress like prostitutes and honestly expect nothing bad to happen are playing with dynamite, a loaded gun, a deadly snake; it's an accident waiting to happen. God is always vindicated and justified. The Bible tells women to cloth themselves modestly for A REASON.

A Ukip candidate has denied he is homophobic or racist despite using the phrase ““arse bandit” to refer to gay people and describing a Pakistani club as his “worst nightmare”.

Geoffrey Caton, who is standing for Nigel Farage’s party in the Merseyside seat of Wallasey, also shared an image suggesting same-sex marriage was a sin.



Criticising a Gay Pride march in Liverpool two years ago, Mr Caton said on Facebook that “being an arse bandit [is] nothing to be proud of].

He attempted to defend himself by saying the comments were taken out of context and said he accepts “times change,” despite making the remarks just two years ago.

He said his Christian faith led him to believe that “a man’s purpose is to marry a woman for children to propagate the family” and said that while he was not opposed to gay marriage now, he said it was wrong that heterosexual couples were not allowed to form civil partnerships.

Mr Caton is standing against Angela Eagle, the first openly lesbian MP.

Explaining his comments to the Liverpool Echo, he said:

“We are living in modern times now, times change I realise that. We have to move on with the times, I have now, and since then whatever I said obviously wasn’t right then and it’s not right now and I fully believe in being fully inclusive.”

He also denied he was not being racist when he posted this comment on Facebook:



He insisted he was referring to the “conditions” that made his experience the “worst nightmare” and not the fact it was a Pakistani venue.

His Facebook page was no longer available this morning.

An election candidate who wants rock music banned, gay people jailed and feminism abolished has rejected claims she is extreme.

Susan Anne White, who caused a stir when she stood in last year's council elections, is now aiming to become MP for West Tyrone.

The devout Christian says her campaign will focus on moral issues including society's "dangerous" homosexual agenda.

She also wants to outlaw rock music, saying it fuels sexual anarchy and drug use.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Mrs White, who is standing as an Independent, denied that her views were extreme.

"I don't consider myself extreme - not at all," she said. "It is society that has moved. Not so far in the past, most people would have shared my views.

"My views only seem extreme because society has moved away from God's principles."

Mrs White, who is from Trillick in Co Tyrone, is one of nine candidates standing in West Tyrone on May 7.

The outgoing Sinn Fein MP, Pat Doherty, has a comfortable 10,000-plus majority. Last May, Mrs White stood for the new Fermanagh and Omagh Council, receiving just 67 first preference votes.

Mrs White said she opposes feminism "with all her might", and says it is to blame for the recession.

"Feminism is responsible for many of the social ills we see all around us," she added.

"They [feminists] are responsible for the economy - they destroyed the whole concept of a family wage with the father as the bread-winner and the stay-at-home mother. They make women feel they have to be out in the workforce."

Mrs White is also "absolutely opposed to the homosexual agenda" in today's society. If I had the power, I would certainly re-criminalise homosexuality, along with adultery," she added.

She said anyone involved in homosexual or adulterous practices should be jailed.

"I would stop the funding of gay pride parades and other depraved art and cultural events," she added.

Despite her strong views, Mrs White claims she is a "true friend" to the gay community.

"I tell them the truth," she added. "The person who is not a friend, the person who is the enemy to the homosexual is the person who pats them on the back and says their lifestyle is perfectly normal and acceptable."

While campaigning last year, Mrs White spoke out about rock music, saying acts like Iron Maiden and Kurt Cobain promoted anarchy in society. She said she remained opposed to these and other "vulgar acts".

"A lot of rock music is dangerous for the hearing," she added.

"That is not the only problem with it. There is an ideology which permeates rock music and it is sexual anarchy. It is also linked to drugs." She said rock music had "a terrible effect" on young people.

Mrs White blames the EU for much of society's "decadence", saying she would withdraw from Europe "tomorrow".

She admits it will take a miracle to top the poll, adding: "I believe in a God who can work miracles but, realistically speaking, I don't think I will win.

"My concern is not so much with winning, it is with trying, and to try is not to fail. In standing I have a wider platform than I would if I did not stand, and many people will hear the Biblical message and principles."

Susan Anne White on:

Homosexuality: "If I had the power, I would certainly re-criminalise homosexuality, along with adultery"

Rock music: "There is an ideology which permeates rock music and it is sexual anarchy. It is also linked to drugs."

Feminists: "They are responsible for the economy - they destroyed the whole concept of a family wage with the father as the bread-winner and the stay-at-home mother."

Europe: "I would withdraw tomorrow."

Her views: "It just takes one person to articulate what others are thinking."

Aww, don't get mad because the Bible cuts through all your bullshit like a hot knife through butter. Spin your yarns and peddle your immoral nonsense all you like. Your depravity will NEVER be considered normal and accepted by all. As evidenced here by the good people of Alabama who outright reject your sick perversion. How it must suck to be you, desperately monitoring the Christian websites, pissing your pants with fear and absolutely scared to death that the nasty Christians will return the definition of marriage to its former glory once everybody gets a good look at just how ugly and hateful you and yours are. And rightly so! Case in point.

(after being told that pedophilia and necrophilia have nothing to do with sexual orientation:)

Sure they do. Both would assure you that they were "born that way". Sounds familiar doesn't it?
When it comes to sexuality, there's simply no accounting for taste.
People are into what they are into, and they are absolutely convinced that that is just the way they are. Period. No matter how immoral, depraved or illegal their desire happens to be.
You know it. And I know it. Time to call a spade a spade.
Any number of things can trigger sexual fetishes and "orientations". People will even sleep with both genders, often at the SAME time. Orientation? Please. It's all about pleasure. In any and all of its sick and twisted forms. Hedonism 101.

[A comment on the article]

What does it matter if the Soviet Union, Reagan's "evil empire," collapsed? The Liberals have fully embraced it, making the collapse of the Soviet Union irrelevant.

They are the "evil empire." They are here and now, and they grow with every regulation, with every order, with every mandate, with every requirement, with every rule, with every confiscation of taxpayer dollars, and with every person who becomes dependent on them and, as intended, is required to obey them.

They are the same kind of Communist rot as the Soviet Union was - only they rot America from within.

They are the enemy, and they are far worse than the Soviet Union ever was.

Pat Robertson is at it again.

No stranger to anti-gay remarks, the conservative televangelist advised one of his "700 Club" viewers to forgive her husband of 11 years after he apparently cheated on her with a male friend he'd met at their church when they were drunk, Right Wing Watch first reported.

"He didn't know what he was dealing with," Robertson told the viewer in the April 27 broadcast. "If he were this way all the time, if he's a habitual drunk, if he's a habitual homosexual, if he's a habitual philanderer and all the rest of it, then by all means, take a hike. But one time, 11 years, don't throw all of that away."

In the same broadcast, Robertson told a concerned mother to "pray that God will straighten out" her teenage lesbian daughter, who recently came out of the closet.

Proclaiming that teen girls don't know what dress they're supposed to wear, "much less what kind of sex" they are supposed to be, he suggested, "Maybe get her in a camp, a Christian camp in the summer where they are really on fire for the Lord."

In today's Secular Humanistic, Political, Partisan, biased, and liberal approach to our Judicial system, there's no such thing as an Independent JUDGE OR legal system! When the President of the United States can say in front of the American people, "I KNOW "THE JUDGE" will not go against what..Yadayadayada and doing what is best for the Country"! OR whatever his precise words were..... THREATENING the Supreme COURT of our United States! Do it MY way, or ELSE!!! And of course they did exactly what he WANTED them to do! EVEN though one Judge SAID it had to be deemed a TAX, he KNEW that 0'Bama did not have the POWER to TAX the people of the United States without going through the proper process, and THEN it would have to be a decision of CONGRESS not the PRESIDENT! And of course the WORD "TAX" has never been CHANGED in 0'Bama care, because THEN it would make it null and void ANYWAY! RIGHT? Somebody say AMEN? Or LEAVE the CHURCH! OH! MY bad, we're not ALLOWED to say "Church"! Until HE leaves office, NSA is put in their place, blackmail is outlawed, again, and Judges are no longer afraid of the dark, (AND NO< that is NOT a racist comment!), we will continue to go downhill like a greased pig on a ski slope! It is SICK how our Country has become a quagmire of deceit, decay, degrading and depraved evil that no longer has the moral principles, decency, honor, or self-respect to WANT to recover what we used to take such PRIDE in being KNOWN for! We've LOST it through our own ignorance and complacency and deserve the price we're PAYING! OH, GOD! Why IS it that what we value the LEAST, is what we miss the MOST when we LOSE it! PLEASE forgive us! How it must have grieved you when after you rescued the children of Israel from the cruelty of the Pharoah, that all they did was complain! Your patience, love, grace and compassion when they cried out to you, yet they sinned again and again! Just as we are doing NOW! What should have taken them a three days journey to reach the Promise land took them forty YEARS because of their disobedience! Yet you were always there, willing to forgive again and again! Please forgive us, as we sin daily! HEAL our LAND, I pray, DEAR LORD! Amen!

Exhibit 16: Reproductive Systems (Sex)

Sex is a great problem for Evolution! Per evolution, all living things had a common ancestor. If this is true, every living thing should be sexually compatible and able to produce fertile offspring! That's because if any new specie did come about by mutation, it would have to mate with its parent specie. Yet, none of the major kinds of life can be crossed to produce a fertile offspring!

The reproductive system is a faithful reproducer of its parent kind. You never see an elephant giving birth to a horse or anything other than an elephant. When there is an error in reproduction, it is almost always harmful or at best neutral. Any mutation would have to be included in the genes in order to be passed on to future generations.

The Bible says that God created all living things, male and female to reproduce after their kind. He did this within the 6 days of Creation. If you don't believe God created all males and females within 6 days, how many millions of years was it between the first male and the first female?

Quote# 108172

Every day we each make countless decisions. We don’t naturally think of God being involved when we’re cooking dinner or buying groceries, yet He is very clear that He’s right there beside us. As Christians, the Holy Spirit dwells within us. We don’t want to drag Him through our daily lives like some inanimate piece of luggage. We want to treat Him like the living, feeling, Being that He is. And while He is certainly our Friend, He is also our King, not our peer. This means that instead of inviting Him to participate in the lives we are leading, we want to get to the point of realizing that we are the followers, and He is the Leader. After all, these are not “our” lives at all, but His. We are quite literally His property. By rights, He should be bossing us about on every little detail–from what hairbrush we use in the morning to where we set our shoes at night. The fact that God does not choose to verbally direct our every move does not mean He is content with only being thought of a few times a day, if that. While He gives us a large measure of creative freedom, He wants us to choose to involve Him in every detail of how we spend that freedom. God is not interested in audibly commanding our every breath. He doesn’t want to be viewed as some domineering tyrant but He does want us to realize that living life without Him simply isn’t worth it. He wants us to look to Him for wisdom and guidance in all the little details because we realize He is infinitely smarter than we are. He wants us to check with Him on every detail because we want to please Him with everything that we do. If we truly are living for Him, as many of us claim to be, then it is quite logical that we should be checking our every move with Him. We should always have one ear listening for His Voice to whisper some course correction. We should find His input a delight, not a burden. We should rush to adjust our plans to match His preferences whenever the two fall out of sync.

Quote# 108167

If I have learned one thing in all the years I have been writing these posts it is that the mere mention of God is the best generator of keyboard borne venom. Last week, I wrote that our country’s founding principle is God-given freedom. In 2010, I posted Our Foundation is the Spirit of Freedom. It was my first post after a year long hiatus. So, it is not a new thought to me (or to history), but one I certainly hold to dearly.

I was questioned about where in our constitution is any reference to God or Jesus or any specific religion. The answer is in specific terms nowhere. With a rudimentary understanding of Judeo-Christian values and phrases like “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” and given the religious inclinations of the American populace at the time the phrase was penned, it is not a great leap of logic to conclude to which Creator the reference was made. I was asked whether I thought my rights came from God or some question similar to that and the answer is profoundly yes. Our Declaration of Independence is quiet clear on the origin of those unalienable rights among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. With that declaration in mind, those unalienable rights are protected in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. So, where is God in our Constitution? He is all over it brother.

And another, the one that forever flies off the keyboard. If your God is so great, where was he when…” and just fill in whatever atrocity comes to mind. The answer to that (although the question itself exposes the questioner’s ignorance of Christianity and the Christian God) is that God lets people choose their way. God wants you to accept him by your own free will. If by your free will you choose another path he will turn you over to it as is well explained in Romans 1: 18-32. So let’s not blame God for the choices made by men. Then there is the Darwin worshipper who declares that belief in God is just an example of scientific ignorance. Might I ask? Is this the same science that declares man-made global warming is destroying the planet and the solution to that problem is a global wealth redistribution scheme?

The left (communists, Marxists, socialists, progressives, liberals…) mostly rejects Judeo-Christian values out of hand. Sure, there are those who lean left in their ideology who are Church goers and proclaimed Christians, but they have embraced things simply are not Biblical. The right (wholly evil in the minds of many on the left) certainly has its share of people who are as anti-Christian as anyone on the left could ever hope to be. What both have in common is the rejection of a higher moral authority – a rejection of God and his commandments.

Without a moral authority, who decides what is good or bad. Who would decide for people that it is wrong to murder – or for that matter, to do anything else? Moral relativism, for as destructive as it is we see it every single day. When an ultimate moral authority is rejected so is civil society and so is freedom.

I just heard presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in a speech, declare that in our country we are going to have to modify deeply held religious beliefs adding that no one should be discriminated against because of who they love (with the exception of those having deeply held religious beliefs). I certainly agree with the part about not discriminating. Choosing your path in life whatever it is should not require that anyone else embrace it. In that light, Mrs. Clinton I refer you to the first commandment: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. While doing that, and in light of the most recent revelations you may want to contemplate the remaining 9 as well. I recommend Dennis Prager’s short book, The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code.

In our military, we are also seeing people persecuted because of their Christian beliefs. The worst of which, Chaplains are being disciplined for counseling from a Biblical perspective or praying in the name of Jesus. From what other perspective would one expect a Christian Chaplain to counsel or pray? History is quite clear about what Godless armies are capable of and their ultimate destruction.

It is also quite clear on the destiny of Godless nations. History is littered with their remains.

Discussing a conflict between the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the University of Tennessee about sectarian prayers before football games, West said that in the days of state-sponsored school prayer, there was no problem with football injuries.

“Now see, I remember growing up in the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia,” he said. “I went to Grady High School and I played football and we didn’t have all this high-speed gear and everything like that, there was no such thing about ‘targeting.’ I mean, you were not a tough football player unless you did try to hit someone head-on. And even in high school, before every game at Grady Stadium, the pastor would come down and pray before every football game. I don’t remember catastrophic injuries. I don’t remember anyone getting carted off that field paralyzed.”

Make bible the law; replace congress, president and supreme court with panel of christian elders who decide all issues.

If we make the bible the law of the land, one would only need to decide whether any action or law agrees with the bilbe. We could then replace congress, the supreme court, and all other top-level executives (the decision makers) with a small group of church elders. This could save billions in tax dollars and stop all the endless legal battles happening all over the country regarding moral and family issues. The church elders would have the final say of what is right or wrong, based solely on the bible.

No offense toward anyone but I find that many non-religious people can be found in the CompSci area of expertise. I'm not sure why this is but besides myself and another friend all the other people I know in that general field are atheists. It would only make sense that we would hear atheist type remarks within these discussions just as we would hear Christian remarks in another field of expertise that seems to attract Christians.

Biological systems change as a result of random mutation, and what doesn't work doesn't survive. What people try to pass off as evolution is simply the less fit not surviving to pass on their bad genes. Sort of like the hundred monkeys idea.

True. Many mutations in human DNA cause the resulting human to be unable to reproduce once they reach the age where a normal human could do so.

The way modern systems evolve is based on (hopefully) *intelligent* selection - I write a patch, submit it to Linus. He doesn't accept it, throw it in the kernel, and that's it - he looks at it, what it does, and decides if it fits in the Grand Scheme of things - kernel efficiency, speed, flexibility, extensability, and maintainability - and *then* decides if it makes it in. They key difference is that in nature, mutation is random because it can afford to be - in coding, it isn't because we don't have thousands or millions of years to find out whether or not something works or not.

We have a way of being able to direct the evolution of our code as we can control the bad parts and teh good parts and what gets added and what doesn't. We have no control over our DNA (human genetics may have proven me wrong already but if not, it shouldn't take more than a few months more) so mutations in the human race are more random.

>

But that's a long way from "evolving" an entire operating system. I don't believe for a moment that homo sapiens "evolved" from pond scum although I might believe that some fellow homo sapiens *are* pond scum!) -

*finally* someone who doesn't believe in evolution of the human race. As a side note, i've heard some people say that a bolt of lightning triggered some proteins to start growing into single celled organisms and then into what we now call today human beings. I take offense that I came from a single celled organism. I believe the more complex an object or system is the less randomness can be added in order to arrive at the current/final version. I think we all agree the human body is the most complex object in the universe so how can we say that our existence was an accident?

An operating system is a complex system as well. We all know code doesn't evolve on its own to generate an operating system right? :) It has to be created and as time goes on code forks are sometimes introduced. In humans that could be somewhat akin to whites, blacks, asians, etc. But they were all created from the code that God started with. He just released his source code(dna) a little later in the development tree than some people may have wanted so there was no point in letting us evolve into something more as we were already different enough. :)

>it only makes sense that we are a created species, and that Homo Erectus ans all the rest were early genetic > experiments. Who created homo sapiens is beyond the scope of this discussion ;)

It is beyond the scope. If we attempted that topic we would be branded as close-minded even though the others (read: non-religious) can do it and they defend themselves by saying its free speech.

my time is out for this post.

Nature: The Fascist

Fascism is the application of science not only to matter, energy, nature and the animal kingdom but to human beings as well. It has been said that nature is the ultimate fascist. You see, fascists believe that humans are an animal on this planet like any other and we must follow the laws of nature like any other. You’re probably thinking that modern leftists do too. No, they don’t. They don’t and they don’t even realize it.

The glaring hole, the massive blind spot, the fatal flaw, the ultimate act of double thinking hypocrisy of the modern Marxist Western world is refusal to address or even acknowledge that the inescapable laws of nature and evolution create biological variety. To vary is to be unequal. Every time I’ve asked one of them to address this they shut down and become a broken record spouting the word “racist” like some priest trying to exorcise a demon.

In the same breath these people will acknowledge evolution as absolutely true, say there is no god and declare all human beings perfectly equal to one another. They will acknowledge that there are different breeds of other species and that you can breed better or worse offspring of any species through selective breeding. We’ve been doing this to the animals we’ve domesticated for millennia. They have no issue with the reality of natural selection and survival of the fittest. However, somehow when it comes to human beings we are magically exempt from all of this. Thousands of years of divergent evolution be damned. We’re all equal, shitlord! And they claim they’re not religious. Heh.

Democracy is shit. Have no tests and leeches that can manipulate idiots will run the country. Have tests and leeches that make them will run the country.

Democracy always fails. Anything that relies on people being altruistic is doomed.

The Architect of Destruction

By Maureen Scott

"Obama comes from a community organizer background where it's us against them. But that's not who we are. And that's not the position the leader of our Nation should take." – Dr. Benjamin Carson

Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps because, as a child, he grew up around family members and mentors who instilled him with an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That bitterness seems not to have left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem – for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday – or is he moved to sadness and reflection when someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever felt the depth of our admiration of the military, as lovers of those who keep America free feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful – because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a grandfather or uncle who showed his medals and told of the bravery of his fellow troops as they fought and tramped through foreign lands sacrificing for a cause greater than their own lives. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the gravesites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather Obama was separated from all of these experiences. He doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and is insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unite us.

Obama has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better, grateful, and proud that, in a short time, our country became a leader, and a protector of so many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements ,along with any of his critics, all for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading anyone who opposes his policies and actions. Unlike a secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, Obama displays a cocky, haughty attitude and a dread of being critiqued.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissention, unrest, and anxiety among the people rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping citizens separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, disrespectful of, and retaliate against those of differing backgrounds and views. Through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of rowdy, street-fighting gangs. When, instead, he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming, and trustworthy force.

Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.

The 'progressive' (fka: c@mmun!st) agenda to break down morality(ref 10 broken marriages in the news ref above) and make the leaders like deity/gods and get the people out of following the true God so we become totally dependent on big Brother and hence a c@mm!e society. Hopefully enough freedom leaders and the people band together to keep this agenda from coming true, lest history repeat itself like it has in other nations.

RANT:

You're over the hill by your late 20s, especially if you look your age. You're now THE oldest guy who still goes to nightclubs. You can't get girls in their LOOKS, FERTILITY and YOUTH PRIME anymore. And even if you can snag the odd one, you have nothing in common with them.

By 30, you should be settling down and ready to have kids. If you have a kid at 30, you'll be in your 40s when it's 10. You won't even be able to play sports with the kid soon after that.

All of your sexual adventures and sowing of your wild oats should be out of your system by now.

But as an INCEL, you're teens and 20s were crap. The PEAK of your YOUTH was spent getting rejected by girls, playing videogames and scraping pass grades in school, only just. So, you didn't even enjoy your youth. Now that you're older, more bitter, slightly balding on the temples, your skin has lost its youthful suppleness, and now you're developing nasolabial folds, what good is to come?

By 30, you've come to realize that your life is now split between working and commuting (70%) and being exhausted from working (30%). If the "good times" weren't even good, why do you think the 30s will be any good? Being an incel in your 20s looks like you were unlucky to a woman. Being an incel in your 30s is a sign that something is wrong.

No one - who doesn't share some of your DNA - loves you. All that's ahead is work, and bills. So what does an incel have to look forward to after 35? Balding? Prostate cancer? Dying alone and getting eaten by his cats?

I'm not 35, but I'm heading there soon enough. Time flies. Now, the only reason why I am "still trying" even though I'm LATE, is because I'm not brave enough to "check out" / visit god / come eat Sue. E. Side. So I'm only making an effort coz I'm trapped here.

How can you even fucking stand to get out of bed, being 38, and INCEL? Having to work just to keep a roof over your head, so you can work, so you can keep a roof over your head, so you can work....?

LOL@being 44 years old and incel. Biology's Chinese water torture.

There's a divorced programmer where I work. He's about 55yo, bald, 0/10. He's divorced, meaning he lucked out in the early feminism era, but after the divorce, feminism being in full swing, he remained INCEL. This guy programs at home as well as work. We can see that he checks in programming code in New Years Eve evening. While reasonably goodlooking men are boning chicks, he's writing routines so that the cash balance of one account can be concatenated with some other fucking value.

Even if you reach 36 and snag a 32 year old woman, she'll look awful. People look revolting as they age. I honestly have no idea how anyone can fuck a woman over the age of 40. With her wrinkles and vagina that looks like corned beef. Think of how many cocks passed through there in her 20s while you were playing videogames in yours. Now you get her when she looks haggered. Well done. If we're programmed to be attracted to signs of youth and fertility, how do men become aroused for 45 year old women who are about as fertile as a shoe? No wonder old men need viagra. Women start to look subhuman after 35. I'd rather thrust into a DVD drive. Compare pics of non Hollywood celeb women at 16 and age 48. The difference is night and day.

At least if you meet a girl in her 20s, you can gradually accustom to her face disintegrating. But meeting her at 43, after her cock caroussel marathon? Lucky me.

If only I knew how I'd feel now. That's the thing about aging. No matter how wise you become, it's always TOO LATE. You can't go back.

I just can't take aging.

Been pushing myself to hit the nightlife for the first time in 11 years over the last few weeks and I'm seeing the most ridiculous shit ever.

The average women don't have to do anything remotely pro-active to attract a man and they'll have streams of above average looking guys approach them, and even these good looking guys will intimidate each other to have access to these average girls. These very plain women can demand tall, handsome, lean and fit men at a whim and they'll be at their call. All the hot girls were crowded in or near the VIP area hoping to get a famous footballer, musician or rugby player (this was a Manchester Nighclub). Just lol if your not a celebrity male and think you can get a chance with these hottest women in a club. They literally want a FAMOUS HANDSOME guy, not just some regular good looking guy that works as an electrician. They are off limits, forbidden to 99.8% of men.

The ugliest, obese women who squeeze their 200lbs, 250lbs, 300lbs disgusting shapeless bodies into tight dresses are still able to get dances and hook-ups with non-fat men. Even though some men turn their noses up and walk away from these flirtatious hamplanets, some will accept thats all there gonna get tonight and take them home. Their male equivalents are 2/10 incels and wouldn't even have the option to get sex & intimacy throughout their lives unless they had riches or paid escorts.

It seriously depressed me I'm not going out at night again unless its necessity.
