Euthanasia is not “compassion”

May 10, 2022

I stand corrected about it being difficult (“painful”) for many patients. I would compare it to the “pain” I felt when my girlfriend dumped me. The only woman I ever truly fell in love with.

That’s qualitatively different from the kind of pain I felt as a kid when I stepped on a rusty nail while playing in the yard.

I HAVE seen it first-hand. My wife was a caretaker for years for an aging couple. He had Alzeimer’s. I met him when he still had cogent thoughts. A chemical scientist. Once he was expressing some deep insight about the situation in his native Cuba, but his sentence drifted off in the middle.

My wife told me one of his doctors mentioned once that there was a cure for it that they were not allowed to use.

That’s one reason I oppose putting him to death. It’s a slippery slope. Terry Schiavo. In Amsterdam the oldsters have to put “DO NOT KILL ME” on their drivers license so kill-happy “doctors” won’t “euthanize” them.

That word is a euphemism for killing that got use as a positive for animals. Among humans, it’s the camel’s nose in the tent. Promoters of prenatal infanticide now claim that if the baby born alive in spite of intentions of sacrificing it, killing it or not should come from a discussion between the parents and the doctor.

From there the depravity graduates to “compassionate” sterilization of inferior women who should not reproduce. Sterilization quotas for hospital directors in Peru (a Univision report years back), doctors in Honduras sterilizing new mothers post-partum without their consent or knowledge, sterilizing permanent “gender reassignment” surgery of children even before they reach reproductive age. And Bill Gates’ vaccine push in India that got shut down by the government after they found it sterilized the girls it “immunized”.

To save the world, they had to kill it. But “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22.

Atheists, agnostics, secularists, are pro-life too.

May 10, 2022

The web sites associated with atheists, agnostics, and “secularists” are proliferating across the Internet.

They seem upset, even angry, that the shrill prenatal infanticide advocates pretend they don’t exist.

This next link has its own extensive list of links to the pro-life voices of anarchists, feminists, progressive pro-lifers, libertarians for life, “National Coalition for Life and Peace”, “Pro-Choice Bigots” (this one is published by a former pro-choicer), “Pro-Lifers Against Clinic Violence”, “Pro-woman, Pro-life -Stop Abortion”, “Rightgrrl!”, “The Ultimate Pro-Life Resource List, Writers Against Violence.

Almost all of the public arguments by Christian pro-lifers are not religious arguments or even based on principles from the Bible, although those are plenty too, but within their own circles mostly with each other. The thing is, however, and why Christians (and most Orthodox Jews) are more motivated, is because they are free of the animosity that many pro-abortion advocates feel against children. Before the issue flared up so big in the 1980s because the richest and most powerful scum of society decided to push back against pro-lifers, there was an article in one weekly magazine I remember about that featured a couple that admitted openly that they were not going to have children out of “selfish reasons” (their words).

Now there is a group of Satanists who are loudly demanding abortion as a “religious sacrament”. Yeah, Satan wants lots of human sacrifice.

Suicide and the zero-agrression principle

May 1, 2022

I am a Bible-believing born-again Christian. Such convictions go strongly, very strongly, against any taking of life, including of course prenatal infanticide, and suicide.

An early Bonanza series episode story had one of the four boys getting into some kind of gunfight while on a trip with a close friend of the family. The friend got shot and was likely dying, and in the utmost agony, begging Little Joe to kill him to stop the pain. The Cartright father gave him wise counsel later, that it was not right to kill the agonizing, wounded friend because even besides the moral prohibition on killing, there was still a chance he would live and later thank him for refusing to do it.

That said, it is too easy to commit suicide. When the Netflix series aired about so-and-so different ways to kill yourself, featuring young people doing just that (by the script, not in real life), there was an uptick in teen suicides. In another incident, a detective investigating a suicide told the boy’s mother before searching his room that he would find one of a certain number of albums in the boy’s collection, with a song telling the listener to kill himself, literally go ahead and “pull the trigger”.

That deserves to be said, and that said, I think there is no clear-cut direct answer to the question. There is no other decision that is totally and completely final, and that removes all possibility of self-ownership with no later recourse, even in cases in which the person hypothetically would decide not to. In other words, what if Smith decides to off himself over a lost love? I think Jones is justified, including under the most basic principle of libertarianism, of preventing it. Future circumstances are guaranteed to fix the motivation.

Thou shalt not kill. The ultimate aggression against your own body, and the harm it would cause to others around you, is not justified in my perspective by the zero-aggression principle.

Was Jesus really okay with taxes?

May 1, 2022

Jesus made clear to his disciples in Matthew 17:24-27 what he thought about taxes when they actually came to his group to collect them. The “authorities” that loot your pocket for taxes do not apply them fairly. In those days they didn’t have to codify the unequal treatment of the vanquished, but now they do it with a tax code that printed out would fill a caravan of 18-wheelers.

When he said “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” it was a good answer to the Pharisees trying to get something to use to either get the Romans to arrest him or to kill his reputation among the people. With his very truthful answer, he still was able to send a message for those who can “read between the lines”. Everybody understood in those days that that the taxes imposed by the Romans were unjust loot from having conquered the nations by the sword.

Therefore was it all really Caesar’s? Is the money you earn yours or somebody else’s? It’s yours, right? So why does anyone accept the Romans robbing what is rightfully earned by you under the threat of prison or a bigger theft taken by force. Did you sign on a dotted line somewhere that somebody appointed by any elected ruler could decide for you how much they will let you keep of your earnings?

How fair is it that your money goes to pay the presidential salary of somebody like Trump? Or even Clinton? Or Woodrow Wilson, who had a movie showing in the White House of a Ku Klux Klan production? (Good “progressive”, that one!)

Or you don’t get a say on how much goes to foreign governments, corporate welfare, personal welfare checks, or college professors to study monkeys high on cocaine, or infecting blacks with syphilis in Memphis, or sterilizing tens of thousands of women who some random “doctor” decides is too dumb to have children?

Who is privileged?

May 1, 2022

From another comment in the wild: “Interesting how the groups that are getting all the governmental mandated privileges are deemed oppressed.”

Like personal welfare, corporate welfare, shrill voices getting people canceled for protesting the racism and lies of CRT and grooming of kindergarten kids thru 3rd grade kids, blacks accused of white privilege for protesting leftist mandates…

Note they don’t accuse Jeff Bezos and the big bunch of billionaires who got even richer off the lockdowns that put “privileged” restaurant and bar owners out of business, and Christians who were forced to “forsake the assembling of yourselves together” by their pastors obeying man rather than God.

Lots of confusion here. Them whom God will destroy in judgment for their sins and oppressing the poor, he first sends them confusion, which makes the fall happen more quickly and recovery sooner. Revelation 13 building. He who laughs last laughs best (See Psalm 2). Read Romans 10:9-10 and do what it says for assured confidence.

Who are the fascists, again?

So of course I could not resist such a great opportunity to return laughs for laughs:

Hunter Biden used Big Guy money to screw prostitutes and made his own porn, check.

The Biden gang not only gives props to Nazis but gives the swastika-wearing Azov batallions tanks, missiles, guns and bullets to shoot at Russian-speaking Ukrainians, check.

Biden now has foreign leaders refusing his phone calls —like the Saudi king that Barry bowed down to– and has India refusing to obey boycotts, chek.

Biden has appointed a cancel-culture activist from that guard dog of the 3×5 card of allowable opinion, NewsGuard, putting her in charge of quashing thought crimes, making sure there is only one opinion allowed at a time, whether it contradicts last week’s edict or not, pissing all over the Constitution, check!

Major freakout over the richest man in the world becoming a free speech advocate, with demands from the ruling class to do something about that.

…Oh yeah, they did do something, there’s now a Ministry of Truth borrowed from the pages of the Orwell novel 1984. ..Crickets from the “private” (haha wink wink nod nod) media on this.

And all this talk about warnings against fascists taking over. The Nazis burned down the Reichstag for an excuse to establish fascism in Germany. The fascists led an incursion into the Capitol for an excuse to establish fascism in “the land of the [no longer] free” in America.

Oh yeah, democracy is in real danger from a guy who was president and the same shrill mob warned was the number one enemy of free speech, while every single talking head of Operation Mockingbird Media blasted away against him every day for four years, and inside his own White House no less, and of course not least of all the Lysenko “scientists” in charge of public health, an oxymoron if there ever was one.

Jesus healed the sick himself, he didn’t extort his neighbors to pay for doctors!

May 1, 2022

Jesus laid hands on the sick and healed them. He did NOT lead marches against Pilate’s palace or even Herod’s to demand Roman-paid health care!

The Good Samaritan paid out of HIS OWN purse, NOT somebody else’s. He didn’t lay in wait for the next rich Pharisee or wealthy rabbi to come buy to rob the money to take care of the victim of the highway robbery.

Jesus warned about this kind of lying and deceit often, blasting away at it. He took the time to fashion a very painful whip to drive the thieving money changers who were deceiving the people (central bankers) out of the temple. Overturning the tables. Like Ron Paul warned you all about.

Matthew 17:24-27 tells you what Jesus thought about rulers that extorted their victims to give the wealth to their favorite sycophants, even telling the disciples that their children were in on it! Does Joe Biden pay taxes, or make Hunter Biden pay taxes, on their extortions and corruptions? Is the War Machine in danger from Elizabeth Warren’s “wealth tax”? Did Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates really suffer with the struggling restaurant and small shop owners in 2020 or thereafter to now? Will Warren Buffet really suffer from the food shortage that we all know is on its way after Joe Biden promised one? Will they suffer from the policies now destroying the dollar?

Mattthew 24, Daniel 2, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12 have been unfolding thru history inclusive of our present era. Daniel 12, Nahum 2:3-4, Revelations 1-22 are now unfolding before our very eyes, and Revelation chapter 13 is especially starting to hit home with the embedded chips they’re already pushing.

War Machine Propaganda

April 30, 2022

From a link:

> Credible evidence shows that Russia executed Ukrainians trying to surrender in the Donetsk region, a U.S. official told the U.N. Security Council. >
> U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice Beth Van Schaack addressed the council Wednesday during a meeting focused on accountability in Ukraine. >
> “We now have credible information that a Russian military unit operating in the vicinity of Donetsk executed Ukrainians who were attempting to surrender, rather than take them into custody,” Van Schaack told the council.

Now based on our experience both here domestically and elsewhere, we know that any U. S. government official would never, ever, tell a lie, ever, henh, cross your heart?

Noo, Russia hoax, Climategate, sexual biology does not exist, Roosevelt was surprised by Pearl Harbor, Jeff Epstein didn’t kill himself (or did he?), free market advocates are racist, Ron Paul was racist even though he was the only doctor in Houston that accepted to tend to a mixed race couple having a baby. The Hunter Biden laptop was a Russian hoax and a Trump campaign trick until it wasn’t, Covid was the plague until it wasn’t, masks didn’t work to fend off covid cooties until it did, then it didn’t, then it did again, global cooling was going to freeze the plane until global warming would destroy life and flood all the coasts then it climate-change…

And especially in war, even a proxy war with a non-enemy that the War Machine turned into an enemy, they sure tell the truth right? Ukraine hasn’t been shooting rockets and bombs into the Russian-speaking Donbas ever since the coup d’etat that overthrew of a duly elected president who did not meet with Leviathan’s approval, or have they? Gulf of Tonkin was a bald-faced lie? Tell us it ain’t so.

All in for Ukraine? Hold on a minute!!
