Joe - President Reagan says there is not a left or a right. He just doesn't read blogs - I guess.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

Reagan was right on the money. The "progressives" think money grows on trees, and they think THEY know best about everything for everyone! And the country goes deeper and deeper in debt, farther into sexual immorality and perversion, more and more indoctrinated, more and more addicted to the government teat, unable to live without a government nanny, and rapidly going to total ruin.

Isn't just like a whining naysayer to ignore the good and make up whatever comes into his mind about what he thinks is bad?

Notice G.E.C. provided not one link to back up his whining.

Show us the statistics that back up your claim that this country is sinking deeper and deeper into sexual immorality and perversion.

Here's a real stat: According to the FBI, the violent crime rate has been falling over the past years and is at its lowest in 40 years.

Here's another link to a fact: Under President Obama, The Federal Budget Deficits Are Actually Shrinking!

The unemployment rate is lower than it was when the Republican George W. Bush's administration plunged the country into a financial disaster. It is now 7.4%.

41 STRAIGHT MONTHS OF PRIVATE SECTOR JOB CREATION. And August may turn out to be the best since 1999!

And the best news of all: The ACA will NOT be repealed, even if the GOP crazies in the House vote to do so a gazillion times. LOL!

So, G.E.C., I backed up my claims with evidence. Where is your evidence for what you whined about?

Shaw,'

What I stated was not "whining," rather it was fact. And I posted no link because anyone of average intelligence and who reads or listens to news at least once a month knows what I stated was true.

Do I need statistics to say this country is deeper into sexual morality than every before? Same-sex fake marriage is now the top perversion movement. Abortion is rampant, hookups rather than marriage is the norm, pornography is available like no time in history, sex indoctrination is taught in kindergarten - "just use a condom" -- etc. And you need stats to show this?!?!?

Violent crime is lower because more people are carrying firearms. DUH. The connection has been proven empirically too often.

The deficits are shrinking?!?!? What sort of bizarre math comes up with this. No time in history has this country been the trillions of dollars in debt as it is now.

Your "evidence" is nothing but gov't propaganda. How about coming into the real world.

G.E.C.: "What I stated was not "whining," rather it was fact."

If what you stated is fact, show us the evidence to back it up.


GEC: "And I posted no link because anyone of average intelligence and who reads or listens to news at least once a month knows what I stated was true."

Glenn, I'm sorry, but this is what someone says to cover up the fact that he's making stuff up. Why should I or anyone take your word as fact, when your very statements show you are extremely prejudiced against this president and his administration. You're telling us to believe your propaganda because YOU say it's true?



GEC: "Do I need statistics to say this country is deeper into sexual morality than every before?"

Yes. To be believed, yes. Otherwise, you're just another guy with another opinion. And you know what they say about opinions.



GEC: "Same-sex fake marriage is now the top perversion movement."

Glenn, that's an opinion. It's not a fact.



GEC: "Abortion is rampant,"

Where's your evidence. I have some to show you that what your wrote is WRONG!


CDC: Abortion Rates Fall to Lowest Rates in 10 Years





GEC: "hookups rather than marriage is the norm, pornography is available like no time in history,"


You need to talk to your fellow conservatives about their love of porn.



GEC: "sex indoctrination is taught in kindergarten - "just use a condom" -- etc. And you need stats to show this?!?!?"

Yes. Why should I believe you when I've shown you above how wrong you've been?




GEC: "The deficits are shrinking?!?!? What sort of bizarre math comes up with this. No time in history has this country been the trillions of dollars in debt as it is now."

You obviously don't know the difference between the national debt and the national deficit.

GEC: "Your 'evidence' is nothing but gov't propaganda. How about coming into the real world."

Right, Glenn. That's what someone who suffers from cognitive dissonance would say when facts slam up against his lack of knowledge.

There's a reason you're attracted to conservatism.

Shaw Kenawe said...

GEC, here's another fact that will make your assertions crumble:

"A recent Texas A&M University study took a look at crime in more than 20 states that passed some version of "stand your ground"-type laws from 2000 to 2010. Researchers found no decrease in crimes like robbery, burglary and aggravated assault, but they did find an 8 percent spike in reported murders and non-negligent manslaughter."

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

Shaw,

Sexual immorality is any sexual relationship outside of real marriage (not to be confused with same-sex fake marriage). Not only is this the biblical definition, but it has long been the consensus for most cultures throughout history. While sexual immorality has been in the steady decline since the early 1900s, any survey of history will demonstrate that it has rapidly declined since pornography became mainstream, starting with such publications as Playboy magazine. To deny that pornography is now rampant is about the same as denying the Holocaust happened. At no time in history has pornography been readily accessible to anyone, especially from the Internet. The question is whether or not it is harmful, and I submit that even the Supreme Court in the 19th century stated it corrupted society. It doesn’t take much of an internet search to find plenty of information today demonstrating the harmful effects of porn.

this current administration is doing even less to protect our culture than previous administrations.

What about the “hook up” culture? Of course the ‘60s really started this with the liberal “hippie” and “free love” culture, which has continued to accelerate to where a huge percentage of people just live together rather than marrying. This should be common knowledge, but you seem to need references.

Homosexuality is immoral and perverse, and virtually every culture in history knew that until the past half-century with sexual anarchy. You claim it is just an opinion that same-sex fake marriage is the top perversion movement; you’ve got to be kidding. Obama’s agenda has been to sanction homosexual behavior, dismantling DOMA, with liberal SCOTUS siding with SSFM (same-sex fake marriage) adherents, more and more states sanctioning SSFM, battles in other states fighting to force the legalization of SSFM, daily reports of people being sued or otherwise punished for NOT sanctioning SSFM. And you say it ISN’T the top perversion movement? Are the zoophiles fighting for their perversion? How about pedophiles? Or necromaniacs? Just what do you consider the top sexual perversion movement? OH - you don’t consider homosexuality perverse. Well your opinion there holds no water with sane people. You just keep claiming the emperor has new clothes.

Then there’s the transgender movement. yeah, they’re pretty up there too in sexual perversion.

So we have sexual immorality of all types, permeating our society like never before, and you claim we as a nation (and almost as an international society) aren’t sliding deeper into sexual perversion and sexual anarchy?!?!

More rebuttal of your charges against me the next time I have a chance to waste time with fools like you.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

Shaw,

And I have no idea why you brought up the red herring about violent crime on the decrease - I never mentioned the subject. However, it has been demonstrated that violent crime has been going down as gun sales are going up, and CCW permits being issued.

Glenn, I pay real good money to cover my 4 year old grand niece's tuition at a private Montessori school.

Right now she's pretty deep into geography and insects.

No sexual indoctrination in sight. Are we getting ripped off?

Xavier Onassis said...

G.E.C. - Wow, dude. You spend an obsessive, compulsive amount of time and energy worrying and fretting about what other people are doing with their naughty bits.

This is exactly the sort of thing that happens when you live under an overbearing, overreaching belief system that attempts to repress human sexuality.

No matter how much you may secretly fantasize about it, no one is forcing you to do anything you don't want to do.

But don't you DARE try to force your boring, narrow minded, bigoted view of human sexuality on those of us who actually enjoy sex and aren't ashamed of it.

If I had to live a life as boring as yours I would have killed myself decades ago.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

X.O.
If I was as foolish and stupid as you, I would have killed myself decades ago.

Shaw,

I forgot this link as another example of the ridiculously immoral society the USA has become.

I said that abortion is rampant, and you claim I am wrong because you have a link which says abortion rates are falling. That’s like saying if I was making a million dollars a year and last year I ended up making $1000 less, then my rate of income is falling.
Abortions are rampant, and have been since 1973 when the SCOTUS found a so-called right to murder the unborn in the “emanations” of the “penumbra” of the Constitution.

I certainly know the difference between “deficit” and “debt.” With the government it is word games as they try to make it look like we aren’t trillions of dollars in debt. And this is primarily because of the government teat that so many liberals like you suck on from cradle to grave.

Xavier Onassis said...

G.E.C. - If your ridiculous notions on human sexuality were applied to the rest of life, you would only be allowed to read 1 book, watch 1 movie, listen to 1 song. For your entire life!

That may be fine for you but the rest of us choose to live life to it's fullest and experience everything that human existence has to offer.

Because once you're dead, you're dead. As you will eventually learn, much to your chagrin.

You only get one shot at happiness. That's why the pursuit of same was written into the Constitution.

A life like yours isn't worth living. It's a waste of DNA, air and water.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

X.O.,

"My" notions of human sexuality are not only biblical, but what was considered normal across the world until the past century, and even moreso until the past 60 years!

But you want to rut like an animal and have sex with anything or anyone and call it normal. You have a demented mind.

Xavier Onassis said...

G.E.C. - When I'm lying on my death bed, I will be able to look back over a life fully lived with no regrets.

All you will see are roads not taken, opportunities squandered, experiences denied, explorations not made, enlightenment kept in the dark and a wasted walk on this earth.

And your reward for all that sacrifice will be...absolutely nothing. You will simply cease to exist.

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

X.O.

You have no idea what I have done in my life. I have indeed lived fully with no regrets.

I live knowing the truth. When I die physically, I know I will be with the Lord spiritually, and have eternal life with him. I feel very sorry for people like you who reject God and will spend eternity separated from Him in hell.

Shaw,

Jesus said, 'I am the way and the TRUTH and the life."

If you want to doubt those who claim to have found the truth in Jesus, then that's your problem.
