Beware, The Crocodile!

Winston Churchill once said of Neville Chamberlain, "There are those who would feed the crocodile in the hope it will eat them last". For those of you too young to remember and/or too lazy to look it up, Neville Chamberlain was, in the early stages of World WarII, playing 'footsie' with Adolph Hitler instead of preparing his country for war. Hitler's rise to power in the 1930's was the greatest single danger of the time. Churchill saw the handwriting on the wall, and, as history has proven, became a great leader in a world under extreme peril as well as a strong ally of our country. Never mind he dressed like 'The Penguin'!

Well, just in case you haven't been paying attention, our world is still faced with great danger. Even more so than during World War II.

Our country, our society, our culture, if you will, is now face to face with a different single danger. A danger that is invisible. A danger that is so inherently subtle it is very difficult to comprehend. But it is very real. It is called evil.

This country is, contrary to what the liberals would like you to believe, a country based on God and His laws. Biblical law. This is historical, not hysterical, fact. It is not left-wing blather dreamed up by a bunch of revisionists hell-bent (so to speak) on secularizing our country. We stood by and watched it happen in Europe and now we are standing by and watching it happen here. Our government, our society and our churches are today steeped in spiritual warfare and WE ARE LOSING, FOLKS, WE ARE LOSING!

We have a choice to make. We can either fold our collective tents and let whatever happens happen, or we can stand up and shout to those who would destroy us, "NO MORE! ENOUGH! WE ARE TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK!" That would be a good start, but not a very good finish. We, as individuals, need to get our sorry selves back into our churches. We need to get on our knees and pray. Alone. Together. Doesn't matter, just pray. We need to pray that our leaders can be strong enough to say "NO MORE" to political correctness, give our land back to God, and move this country past the secular cesspool we are fast becoming. If they can't, or won't, then we need to vote them out of office and replace them with someone who can, and will. We need to pray our leaders can find the political will that so ably carried us through the trials of World War II. We cannot win against terrorism without it. Above all, we need to pray our churches will return to the Truth of Holy Scripture and stop the ungodly perversion of our faith that has become so prevalent today. We just flat out need to pray!

I have liberal friends (a few) and family (not many) who are good people, who honestly believe in their heart of hearts that their political agenda is the 'right way'. Fine! Wrong, but fine! They are certainly not the least bit evil, by any means. Most have a strong belief in God and Holy Scripture, but they somehow have managed to put their worldly agendas ahead of their faith. I'm afraid they have it wrong - and they are feeding the crocodile.

Disturbing The PC Crowd

I recently found some quotes from Ronald Reagan I would like to share with you:

"Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born", and, "Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first".

In keeping with my never-ending quest to disturb the PC crowd, and in keeping with my new-found desire to at least try to understand their mind-set, let me run the following scenario by you. This is not, I'm sure, an original idea, nor am I trying to advocate anything here. I am simply trying to promote dialogue and possibly see if anyone on the left can catch the lack of logic. I seriously doubt it, but it should be fun to try!

The left has historically been in favor of legalized abortion. They believe abortion should be the right of the woman to choose, it is her body, and she should have the freedom to make decisions about her own body without the government stepping in with laws to the contrary. Never mind there is the death of a human being involved. So, where's the logic? Doesn't seem to matter.

The left has historically been against legalized prostitution. They have held that prostitution is wrong EVEN THOUGH it is the right of the woman to choose, it is her body, and she should have the freedom to make decisions about her own body. But NOW, they say, the government SHOULD step in with laws to the contrary. Never mind there is NO death of a human being involved. So, where's the logic? Doesn't seem to matter.

Of course, this is a very ridiculous analogy. It is sophistry through and through. It is just what it is meant to be, and nothing more. A quick peek through the window of the liberal mind-set and what makes it tick. So, where's the logic? Doesn't seem to matter.

Holy Scripture tells us that taking a human life is wrong. A sin. The PC'rs don't seem to make that connection. Holy Scripture also tells us that prostitution is a sin, and this time they are all over it. So, where's the logic? Doesn't seem to matter.

Random Rants

Massachusets lawmakers have decided to adjourn until after the November elections rather than deal with a bill regarding same sex marriage. Bunch of weenies!

Georgia's new law regarding photo ID cards for voters was struck down by two judges as unfair. So, all you need to vote is to show up with a utility bill (anyone's would do, I guess, who would know?), or a laundry ticket or whatever. That'll sure stop voter fraud in its tracks! Anyone care to guess if the judges are liberal or conservative? PC is alive and well in Georgia!

North Korea is in serious trouble now! The all-powerfull United Nations has imposed their dreaded sanctions on them for test firing rockets. Y'all remember how that brought Saddam Hussein to his knees, don't you? Right!

And finally, Newt Gingrich was right on the money, once again, when he chided the folks at the G-8 Summit for issuing a statement urging Israel to use restraint in dealing with the low-life Hezbollah for kidnapping two of their soldiers and attacking their country for no apparent reason. Can you imagine the response had we been told to 'cool it' after 9/11? One more ridiculous case of global PC!

Condi Come Home

Hey, Condoleeza, come home, girl! As they say here in Tennessee, 'We ain't got a dog in that fight'! Israel does not need interference from anyone. They can handle this on their own, as they have proven many times in the past. In fact, it would no doubt be a good thing for the Hezbollah and other terrorist groups to see retaliatory action that is not hampered by political correctness.

The Israelis certainly know how to fight a war to win, and win it they will if we will just stay out of their way. We could, and should, learn a great deal from them on how to deal with terrorism. In fairness, I should point out that they don't have to coddle the Kennedys, Kerrys, Pelozis and the rest of the PC crowd. They just go out and kick butt!

Had we not meddled in middle-eastern affairs over the years, the Palestinians, and assorted other terrorist groups, would have learned the necessity to co-exist with Israel instead of continuing to kill innocent men, women and children with their cowardly attacks. And we, through our mis-guided policies, have emboldened them. They know we have historically stepped in to control Israel when total retaliation was in order, and they have played that fact to their advantage.

Can we ever learn not to stick our 'politically correct nose' in where it is not needed? I seriously doubt it!

Welcome to Dougie Rants!

Dougie enters cyberspace. I publish "Dougie Rants" weekly in the Rutherford Reader, a popular weekly shopping paper in the county. I also send a weekly email to my friends (and sometimes foes) with my views on the world. My beliefs are conservative, based on my own common sense and the teachings of Jesus Christ. I hope you plan to come here often! I will try to keep you entertained, informed, and otherwise confused.
