my medical appointment
friday, september 27th, 2013
i visited my physician office of 22 years, last week.
Instead of his familiar face, she was a "new" doctor in the practice – a young lady (at MY age, EVERYBODY is "young" – when I was born, the Dead Sea wasn‘t even sick) who was quite enthusiastic. She was obviously a liberal by her dress and manner. I was thinking of hitting on her, but I don't like the phrase, "You remind me of my grandfather."
She asked me what was wrong, and I replied, "I have a cut on my leg; and I think it may be getting infected."
She said, "Before we start, I have to ask you a few questions. Are you allergic to any medications?"
I replied, "No."
She said, "Do you have any guns in the house?"
I said, "HUH?"
She replied, "Guns. Do you have any guns in the house?"
I asked, "Why?"
She said, "I've got to ask this question. It is required under the Affordable Care Act."
I asked, "What are you going to do with the data?"
She said, "We compile it, amalgamate it, and submit it to the government."
I said, "Well, I have a Tommy Gun. I let my kid Tommy play with it."
She said, "What's a Tommy Gun? I don‘t think that is the kind of gun they are concerned with."
With THAT, I knew I had a live one. I said, "It's similar to a B.A.R., but a little heavier and shorter. I have a B.A.R. also."
She said, "A B.A.R.?"
I said, "Yes."
She looked puzzled. Then she brightened up and asked, "Do you have any assault rifles?"
I attempted to look puzzled, and said, "I don't know. What is an assault rifle?"
She said, "That's a gun that is used in wars."
I said, "As a matter of fact, I do. I have a replica of a Revolutionary War musket."
She began to look a bit exasperated. I pretended not to notice and kept up the appearance of trying to be helpful.
She said, "Do you have anything more modern than that?"
I replied, "Well, yes I do. I have a replica muzzle loader from the Civil War. Do you know the difference between a musket and a muzzle loader?"
She rather peevishly said, "No, I don't; and I don't want to. What else do you have?"
I said, "I have an M-1."
She asked, "What's that?"
I said, "A rifle."
She asked, "What kind?"
I replied, "It is called a Garand."
She rather loudly said, "I don't care if it is a grand rifle or not. Is it an assault rifle?"
To which I replied, "I don't know. I don't know what an assault rifle is. You say its a rifle used in war, yet you say that my musket and muzzle loader are not assault rifles."
She calmed down (a bit) and asked, "Anything else?"
I said, "I have an MG-.30, and an MG-.50. I‘m also part owner of an Apache. But they are not rifles."
She stated, "Well, then, I'm not interested in them. Anything else."
I replied, "Well, yes. I also have a 12-gauge and a 20-gauge pump. They are not rifled though."
She said, "I'm not interested in pumps; I'm interested in guns."
I replied, "Well, then, I have a Colt, a Luger, a Glock, a bazooka, a Parabellum, a Kalishnikov, a Henry, a Uzi, a Llama, and a Beretta--but they are not rifles."
She then said, "I've had enough of this. I think you're toying with me. Let me see your leg."
I then said, "Excuse me, but before you look at my leg, I have a few questions to ask of you."
She replied, "Of course. What are they?"
I said, "I have given you a lot of information about my guns. I am somewhat concerned about your knowledge and ability to assimilate, make coherent sense of that information, and report it correctly. Do you know the difference between a .22 caliber and a .223 caliber? It's a rather fundamental difference."
She replied, "Actually, I don't."
I said, "I see. Let me ask some more relevant questions. "How much money do you make?"
She said, "That's personal, why do you ask?"
I said, "Well, in pushing the Health Care Act, my president cautioned the population about doctors that would amputate a leg rather than treat a cut because they make more money that way. Consequently, I wish to know if you are financially troubled. What kind of car do you drive? What are your house payments? How much is your mortgage? How much credit card debt do you have? Do you have a student loan; if so, how much?"
She said, "I'm not going to answer those questions. You have no right to ask them."
I then asked, "Do you have training and education in homeopathic techniques? Do you know the benefits/effects of CoQ10, ginseng, fish oil, Creatine, BCAA, and other such herbal treatments?" Do you know the difference between Panax ginseng, American ginseng, and Siberian ginseng?"
She replied, "Well, no."
I then asked, "Well, have you studied it at all?"
She replied rather defensively, "NO; its all a bunch of hogwash anyway."
I said, "Oh, then you have read the research on it. What have you read?"
She then said, "I don't waste my time reading such things. Why are you asking me these questions?"
I said, "Well, if I'm going to turn my body over to you for treatment, I believe it is reasonable for me to know something about your motivation, training, experience, and competence. Do you know anything about the practice of holistic medicine?"
She said, rather angrily "No, I don't."
I said, "Oh. O.K. How much experience do you have in practicing medicine?"
She replied, "Well, not very much."
To which I said, "Well, we all have to start somewhere. What medical school did you go to; what is its rank in terms of other medical schools; where did you intern; and where did you do your residency? What is the rank of the hospital where you did your internship and residency?"
She rather peevishly said, "All my credentials are posted in the waiting room."
To which I said, "Really? The rank of your medical school is posted in the waiting room? Do you have any experience with leg injuries? If so, how much?"
I guess that was too much for her. She rather crossly said, "I think it would be best if you saw a different doctor." and started to leave the room.
I said, "You know, doctor. You asked me irrelevant questions about my guns, and I answered them. Whether or not I own guns is really none of your business and has absolutely nothing to do with any treatment you might prescribe. On the other hand, I ask you questions quite relevant to my situation, and you refuse to answer them. Isn't that somewhat backwards?"
She said, "But I HAVE to ask those questions. It's the law."
To which I replied, "Actually, it is NOT the law. Here is what the law says – taken directly from the Affordable Care Act:"
"(1) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS. – A wellness and health promotion activity implemented under subsection (a)(1)(D) may not require the disclosure or collection of any information relating to –
"(A) the presence or storage of a lawfully-possessed firearm or ammunition in the residence or on the property of an individual; or
"(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm or ammunition by an individual.
"(2) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION. – None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used for the collection of any information relating to –
"(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition;
"(B) the lawful use of a firearm or ammunition; or
"(C) the lawful storage of a firearm or ammunition.
Kiss your personal privacy goodbye. (You can verify this at Compilation of PPACA and Obamacare Amendment Does Not Forbid Gun and Ammo Registration.)
"As you can see, you have broken federal law TWICE – once by asking, and once by collecting data. It is perfectly legal for me to own guns; it is not legal for you to ask and/or collect such
"There is really no need for me to see another doctor in this practice. I‘ll go somewhere else, where my privacy is respected, and I can trust the information I receive."
Although this was a fictional event, if 0bamacide isn't defunded from the US Congress' CR (Continuing Resolution), our Constitutional Republic is over and dead; we'll have fully-slipped, head-long into Marxism, socialism and tyranny.
A Day In The Life
Friday morning was a foggy, 46°F, cloudy start to the weekend, and I was up at 5:45. While making French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Starbuck's® Dark French Roast Fresh Ground Beans) with my Chemex® Drip System, and Fresh-Squeezed OJ w/ lots of pulp, I scanned the weather and news sites, checked email and got ready to go over to Dad's to meet the sales/tech reps at 930am, from Choice One® Security Services, to get his house armed. I left at 8:45. We worked on figuring out the new Hanover® Pavers colors and pattern choices and I redesigned the from landscaping, so I can meet with Larry at Heritage Lawn & Landscape Service on Tuesday, in Thomasville, a give him a totally-revised design and plant list. The Choice Security rep, Drew, was there at 9:30, and after a tour of the house, he put together a security package for Dad & Becky. I shot some pics of the house to give me some better perspective in the rendering, just like old
I stopped at a local Mexican restaurant, and loaded-up with 10 hard shell burrito supremes, 4 cheese-smothered burrito and 6oz of 'FIRE' sauce, to remix with my own salsa; enough for 3 days. listened to the last hour of Rush, when the usual Mark Levin Show came on from 6-9pm. I need to make copies of the blank template on Dad's copier tomorrow, in case there needs to be additional options and changes to revised my revision to, based upon plant material availability. I decided to stay-up for a little while to watch FoxNews' "Hannity" and the defunding of 0scumbagCare. By 9:45am, I was nodding-off, shut-down, armed the Condo and went up to bed. Tomorrow's another day.
Up at 5am on Saturday, already a warm 63°F day which was forecast to be loaded with t-storms and flooding rains, for most of the day and night. I made the usual coffee, had some fresh Texas Red Grapefruit which I'd picked-up at the Eastern Market, yesterday. I checked the weather and news sites, email
I had some of the leftover Mexican food for lunch, and worked on the landscape design plan, and plant list, while listening to the week's 5 Chris Plante Show Podcasts. The t-storm finally hit us around 1pm and continued thru the night; it's dry here and we need the rain. With a high of 78°F, the trees' leaves are re-awakening and beginning to produce sugars to make chlorophyll, and that's going to further delay or negate the fall colors for New
A loud clap of thunder woke me at 3:15am on Sunday, as the massive thunderstorm front was moving east of us, and I couldn't get back to sleep. So, I made OJ, coffee and checked the weather; sure enough, the storms had moved east and we'd have a pleasant, but cool, day in the low/mid-60s. I spent the dark hours going thru the news websites, working on Dad's landscape drawing and going thru my morning's food shopping list, for later. I warmed-up the Jeep, walked over to get the week's mail from the Condo community mailbox, and left at 8:15. I got the shopping done, drove over to Dad's to visit with him and Becky, and was home by 11. After unpacking the groceries, opened the week's mail, went next door to meet my new neighbor for a while, came back and made a Sweet Lebanon Bologna Sandwich w/ Chips, for lunch. Temps hit a high of 66°F for the day. I spent the afternoon walking around the local park, large shopping mall parking lot, and got home by 5, in time to do 2 loads of laundry, before the evening's "Gun Talk Radio", which came on KIDO-AM Streaming, plus I also followed it on the FR.com forum thread, from 8-11pm. I turned-up the heat for 15-20 minutes to take the chill off the Condo, shut everything down, armed the building and went upstairs to try to get some sleep. This is going to be a busy week.
I overslept until 7:30am on Monday, a nice 67°F, and knowing that I had places to go at 9am, I quickly had some OJ, coffee and got my paperwork ready, loaded the Jeep and left at 8:40. After a couple stops, I
Up at 5am on Tuesday, it was a brisk 37°F. I made OJ, coffee, had a Buttery & Flaky Croissants, checked the usual
Back to the Condo, I caught the morning's missed Chris Plante Show Podcast, until the Mark Levin Show came on until 9pm, checking-in-on US Sen Ted Cruz' filibuster effort, in the US Senate. The fate of our Constitutional Republic hangs in the balance on Saturday or Sunday, when the criminal traitor, Dingy Harry Reid, calls for a 60-vote "cloture vote" to kill the discussion and push the CR (Continuing Resolution) thru. If that happens, we lose America, for good. I hope you're well-prepped for what's coming; do you know that we're going to collapse economically and societally? I've been "getting ready for SHTF since 9-11-01. By 10:45pm, I was tired and closed-down for the night.
Finally, American media are asking the question, "Could what happened in Kenya, happen here?" I've been saying that since entries in this "Journal", dating back to 9-12-01, after the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic attacks in NYC-DC-PA. Wake-up, America! Tens-of-thousands of
Wednesday morning was another cool start, only at 38°F and foggy. I was up at 5:30, made coffee, had some Del Monte® Mandarin Oranges, skipped any breakfast, though I had a real craving for French Toast, but would just have a bananna and wait until lunch to eat a meal. Maybe tomorrow or Friday for French Toast. I scanned the news and weather reports/forecasts, checked email, ran a couple of quick errands and stayed home for the day doing paperwork and projects around the Condo. All that Mexican food, over the past few days, was playing havoc with my guts. NOTE TO SELF: Don't do that again. Geez, what a surprise: postal rates are going up again, at the perpetual loser, incompetent, union-riddled US agency. I made a Turkey & Ham Club Sandwich and a Baked Potato W/ Bleu Cheese, for lunch, and took a 2hr snooze on the LR couch while listening to some Classical Music. High for the day was 75°F, but by 6pm, it'd dropped down to 47°F and was falling further. I woke-up an hour-plus into the usual the Mark Levin Show, from 6-9, so I stayed-up until 10:30pm to catch-up on what I'd missed. I checked my morning's schedule and there was that 10am meeting at the GC&N Complex with the new realty company, so I needed to get some sleep rather than staying-up. I closed down, armed the Condo and went upstairs to hit the sack. This week's going fast, and I need to get back over to Sherry's as soon as Dad's sidewalk and landscape
Thursday, 5:30am came too fast; the Condo was cool at 62°F, 39°F outside, and I needed to turn-up the heat for a little while, to take the chill off. I haven't yet put on the Winter blankets or the electric blanket, but it'll soon be time to do that. I left at 9am, drove to Stewartstown to pick-up 4 Rxs, which were ready, and back up to the GC&N Complex for the 10am meeting with the 2 realtors from the large commercial realty company. We spent 2 hours touring the buildings, greenhouses and property, and they took a lot of pictures of the empty, desolate place. I'm providing 53 assorted *.jpgs of the Complex, "in better times", for them to use, and a couple of professional appraisals we'd had done back in 2005 and 2007, to help them put together a proposal for Dad and me to consider. I closed-up at 12:15pm, and as I was locking the front gate, the guy who'd originally sold me the 20ac farmland property, stopped by, and made an "sales agreement" (financing) offer on the property, which means payments instead of a lump sum. I can't do that, so I had to turn him down. Too many risks involved for me. Traffic was much heavier on the way home, during lunch hour and with all of the waste-filled, BS/crap PennDOT "construction" projects going on. I stopped at a local nursery and bought a 6-7ft 7gal Red-Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida "Cherokee Brave") for Dad's new sidewalk/driveway/re-landscape project, starting next week. Unable to get into in my Jeep, I'll have Heritage Lawn & Landscape Co pick it up, and bring it to Dad's, for installation with the rest of his new plant material, after the new sidewalk and driveway apron are installed.
I have to eat my words on something: CLF bulbs. They really last, as compared to standard bulbs. The 5 23w "pigtail bulbs", which I installed on the GC&N's outside doors' lights, back in February are still going strong; I didn't have to change any, although I took some replacements along. I was back home by 1pm, made a simple Ham & Cheese on White, opened-up the Condo's windows and doors to get some fresh air, listened to Rush while I did some Condo chores, and went out for a 20-minute walk. It'll be soon time to clean-up the fading front gardens and get ready for Winter. I went to the CHCA Annual Meeting at 7pm, and was back by 9:30, watched some Fox News and closed down at 10:30. Tomorrow starts another week here in the "Journal;" and next week is going to be a frigging ZOO, with so many sidewalk/drive/landscape projects, Dr's app'ts, paver deliveries, ComCast service calls, realtor meetings etc etc etc, that I'm just looking forward to getting thru it all with my sanity mostly intact, and into the following week.
You Own It, demokkkRATs!
Congratulations to the asswipe demokkkRATs, irrelevant "Free Shit!" minorities and stupid young people on the Truly-Shitty Economy you've created and inherited.

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!
Your SHTF Survival
Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in late-2012 or in early-2013. Don't ask why; I just do.
First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,
Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.
I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?
Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?
Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.
BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,
This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!
Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!

As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.
We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.
I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?
Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!

Can you guess How Many Times Has the World Ended, so far?
$100 says TSHTF in Europe, very soon. It's falling apart and all subhuman muslim troglodyte filth are going to need to be hunted-down and killed. are you ready for the coming collapse, because it's coming to the US, too?
Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"
"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:
"If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.
It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.
(Here's the video of that loony remark.)
However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.
Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.
But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.
As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.
Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.
In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.
When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." ©Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012
Some People Just Need Killing
It's not my intentions to be the judge here — that's God's "job" — but rather to "hasten the meeting" so that He can send the following subhuman filth to the "Fires of Hell", "River or Lake of Sulphur", or whatever He deems appropriate. I'd gladly/happily volunteer, at no cost to any of my Hard-Working, Fellow US Taxpayers, to gladly/gleefully/happily headshoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags of all stripes — their skin-color doesn't matter one whit to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents — especially our too-vulnerable, precious children and the frail, defenseless elderly — of the subhuman criminals who prey upon them, once-and-for-ever. And yes, I'd rather see one innocent man convicted and executed, than 10 murderers, robbers, child rapists-murderers freed, to rob, rape and murder again. Hey, call me an "Old Fashioned Conservative"! Too harsh? Nah. Someone needs to take out the trash! I volunteer.
Society's innocents — our precious, defenseless children and the frail, defenseless elderly — must be protected from predators, murderers, rapists, robbers and other subhuman filth, at all times and at any cost, IMO.
The 6th Commandment actually says: "Thou Shalt Not Murder". It does NOT say, "Thou Shalt Not Kill." I personally don't consider any summary-execution — except by subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic pigshit — as murder, in any way, shape or form. It's "Due-Justice-For-Crimes-On-This-Earth", IMO.
The Death Penalty is The Foundation of Government.
Yes, I agree with the premise of this article, that "the death penalty is a Noahic Covenant with God, in a post-flood world", and America should apply it every-damned-day, to those deserving death for their crimes against society and its innocents.
"100 years from now, I want the filthy, stinking subhuman islamic/muslim filth's childrens' childrens' childrens' children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky. I want them to hide in wet, dark caves and hellish-holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting-out death and destruction. I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with "If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you", and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obedience. I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea – the powerful Americans – destroyed their forefathers' wickedness."
Liberal Media BS
The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.
Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.
Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out.
