Oh dear. It seems people are increasingly unhappy with their "president." Wednesday saw Rise and Resist protesters shut down 5th Ave. at Trump Tower - "If you take the kids, we take the streets" - in their first act of civil disobedience, and early that morning one patriot took a resolute pick-axe to Trump's long-dubious star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, obliterating it. Reactions were gleeful - "Whoever you are, marry me" to "Oh my heavens, round up the usual 8.6 billion suspects" - with the consensus the hero had also created a dazzling metaphor for Trump's America.
Definitely an act of patriotism! With a jury trial (remember those?) I see NO CHANCE of conviction. Fact is, fewer people voted FOR him than the many who voted AGAINST him and his lying, brutal, attempted FASCIST EMPIRE. This is the time for every person to offer up some sort of resistance to the twisted dreams of a madman.
In Tinsel Town, where much is fake,
The Trumpeter paid for STAR to make.
He seeks then IMMORTALITY,
Succeeds in plain BANALITY
A pummeled star for HUMANITY’S sake! : )
Thanks Clay, (and James Otis) I so needed this laugh today. May your acts resonate.
Bet that act hit the Orange Turd where it hurt most.
A star on the Walk of Fame???
How about a star on the Walk of Past Your Freshness Date???
This makes me sad in a way, now I will have to call off my trip to Hollywood to shit on his star.
Yes, I note the smiling faces, and I also note (based on some of the absolute hatred I have seen and experienced here) that if and when you Socialists take over this country, you will be happy to do the same to us Christians who object to your Wild West ideas on sexual morality.
You ain’t foolin’ us one bit.
That “turning himself in” was stupid. The guy will now face years in prison and massive fines.
I know; it is the old ploughshares-action tactic - break into a base, or factory, pound on a piece of military equipment, then say the rosary until the MP’s come. Such a tactic has worked in other countries such as Ireland, where juries are allowed to use moral considerations and deviate from the judges “instructions” (aka “jury nullification”) to acquit the ploughshares actors. But in the US, juries are always hand-picked by the prosecutors, then threatened with contempt of court if they don’t do what the judge tells them to.
Yes. Because Trump is such a paragon of marital fidelity and sexual morality - a model for good Christians everywhere!
No socialist I know would ever force you to have sex, Ed.
That’s the difference between us and “Christians” such as yourself—you would force your version of “morality” on everybody else at gunpoint, or spearpoint, or under threat of burning at the stake, to appease some imaginary cosmic cop.
I’ll begin to believe this is a “Christian” nation when it stops waging wars for profit (remember “Thou shalt not kill?”) How, or when, or whether individuals choose to deploy their genitalia is not a matter of great concern in that context.
You don’t get it, do you? There is such a thing as the “common good.” If there is a life boat at sea with 100 people in it, and one of them is drilling holes in the bottom of the boat, it is right to stop him because he is acting against the common good.
Unrestrained sexual expression is devastating to the common good. Let’s look at a few instances:
70% of births in the black community are illegitimate. Young boys grow up not knowing who their father is. Do you know what that does to a kid? He goes around thinking he is trash because he was not good enough for his father to be with him. He grows up angry at the world and becomes a thug, taking his anger out on other people. There is a reason that there is a correlation between the high crime rates in the inner cities and illegitimacy.
STDs are killing people and causing sterility. People who wait till marriage for sex, who are virgins on their wedding night, and who are faithful throughout their marriage, don’t have this problem. Faithful couples do not come down with AIDS and other deadly diseases.
Sexually promiscuous people have higher rates of depression and suicide.
Pornography is a world-wide addiction now. Under the guise of “sexual freedom” young women are turned into pieces of meat for the lusts of men, they get diseases and die from being a porn star. Google some of the stories of women who have come out of that industry. Sickening. Yet you, as a Progressive, claim to be for “women’s rights.” How about drop the hypocrisy and start protesting an industry that creates sexual havoc. You can trace many of the rapes, sex trafficking, and other forms of misogyny directly to men who are so ramped up from looking at pornography that they can’t control themselves.
60 million dead in America alone from abortion. Hundreds of dead women who went in for an abortion and came out of the clinic and bled to death. And this violence against the most innocent of us is a foundation for more violence against the living. Hey, if an unborn baby is a target, who gives a rat’s rear end about living children in Iraq? Just bomb the hell out of them to teach them not to screw with the good ole USA!
Thousands of men and women are coming forward to say that their sexual promiscuity, their abortions, the sex-change surgeries they had, caused them far, far more grief than dealing with the problems that caused their behaviors and thinking.
What we are trying to do is to protect people from being harmed, to promote the common good, to protect society and the family. Your philosophy has caused great harm to untold millions, and yet you have the nerve to try to act as if you are doing something good by promoting immorality. You Progressives destroy everything that is good and then criticize the Church and the people in it when we can’t pick up the pieces of your destruction fast enough.
You’re frothing again, in addition to imputing to me personally things I never said or did.
Who asked you? Please familiarize yourself with the word “patronizing.”
I was replying to your comment – “That’s the difference between us and “Christians” such as yourself—you would force your version of “morality” on everybody else at gunpoint, or spearpoint, or under threat of burning at the stake, to appease some imaginary cosmic cop.”" – with a statement about why we feel it necessary to stand for morality.
For sixty years now, we have seen the increasing failure and devastation of the Playboy Philosophy and the havoc it has wrought, especially upon women:
FROM FR. DWIGHT LONGENECKER’S BLOG:
Free sex is anything but free and Britain is paying a very high price for free sex. Counting the Cost: Economics of Sexually Transmitted Infections estimates that the UK spends over £1billion annually on treating STIs alone.
The Public Health Report (PHE) published in June 2018 reveals 420,000 cases of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) diagnosed in 2017, with a 20% increase in syphilis. The increase in syphilis follows a 10-year trend, with 78% of diagnoses in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM).
Shockingly, the highest rates of STIs continue to be seen in 16 to 24 year olds. Over 1.3million chlamydia tests were carried out and over 126,000 chlamydia diagnoses were made among young people aged 15 to 24 years. ‘The impact of STIs remains greatest in young heterosexuals 15 to 24 years; black ethnic minorities; and gay, bisexual and other MSM,’ the report concludes.
Even worse, the NHS spends £1million a week providing repeat abortions as thousands of women use abortion as a form of contraception. Single or unmarried women account for five out of every six repeat terminations. Each abortion costs the NHS from £680 to £1,000. Taxpayers spent £118m on abortions in 2010.
Gomes highlights how the liberal British regime simply puts their head in the sand and calls for more contraceptive education, more abortion clinics, more free condoms and more sex education for younger and younger children.
This has provoked a conservative response that points out quite rightly that the policy of free contraception, and universal ‘values free’ sex education has failed. Yet, the conclusion the liberal establishment draws is, “Whoops! teen pregnancy and abortions are still going up. Clearly we have not given enough sex education and handed out enough free condoms to children early enough.”
This is like saying, “Gee, my car conked out when I put orange juice in the gas tank. I guess I didn’t put enough in. I better add some more.”
Whether he said it or not the Einstein “quote” is true. The definition of insanity is, “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
What is it going to take for you Progressives to finally realize that your immorality - the immorality which makes you hate Christians and want us dead because we oppose it for the sake of the family, the country, and the common good - is an utter failure and hurts people?
You live in a fantasy world and your eyes are shut tight to reality. We keep trying to open them by giving you simple facts, which you don’t wish to hear.
Get real for a minute, Ed! This was a perfect symbolic act of resistance and defiance, as no one got hurt (unless they hurt themselves laughing). You really need to get over your “Christians are persecuted” paranoia. This act had absolutely nothing to do with sex or Christians.
I’d rather go to hell than spend eternity with Christians. There would be too many people like you in heaven walking on the gold streets and using the gold toilets and judging everyone. No thanks. If there is a heaven, give me a hiking trail here on earth, the planet you republicans are so intent on destroying.
If you keep your so-called morality to yourself, you’ll be just fine. We don’t want to f^ck with you, we just want to make sure you don’t f^ck with us. That’s why we have a separation of church and state in our Constitution. Get it?
Also, when we do take over the country, you’ll get to enjoy the benefits and we won’t even resent it – a moral character you and your ilk seem to lack, notwithstanding your religious teachings, which you never seem to actually practice.
I was tempted to unpack your comment and respond to each every word, but I couldn’t stop laughing out loud, so I gave up.
Have some more kool-aid, I think you’ll find it refreshing, if not illuminating. Also, check your tin-foil hat, it seems a little akilter.
And none of us commies would force “him” to have an abortion after sex.
Quite understandable. And they are sure bent on making this life on earth a hell for all non-christians.
