Putting the Twit in Twitter (and interrupting an otherwise uneventful blogging retirement) UPDATED

Hey all. Sorry to self intrude on my own blogging retirement, but someone has decided to resurrect my Twitter account “MrEvilMatt.”   I had closed it, along with my Facebook account, when I started studying for ministry.   My impostor took the time to copy the profile almost exactly, right down to he “hypnotoad” icon.  They are re-tweeting some racist content.  While that cannot hurt me in any way, since to be hurt by social media, you might actually have to be on social media, I thought I might as well set the record straight, so no one is fooled. Whether […]

Traitor Or Idiot: You Decide

Traitor Or Idiot: You Decide–Bob asked a simple question.   Barack Hussein Obama Finally Points Finger for Islamic ISIS Terrorism — Says Those Who Criticize Islam Are at Fault (NO JOKE) Obama Opens ‘Extremism’ Summit With Muslim Prayer, No Other Faiths Allowed–Biden Says Christians Are Murderers Obama refuses to acknowledge ‘Muslim terrorists’ at summit Obama Appoints Terrorist Supporter to Head Up New Counterterrorism Messaging Center Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign Obama defends Islam at all cost The Betrayal Papers – Part I of V – Under Obama: The U.S. Captured by the Muslim Brotherhood Obama: America Must Make Muslims […]

Greatest Hits: Some Thoughts on Human History, and Progressives

Some Thoughts on Human History, and Progressives Many of you might have noticed that I often put quotations around the word, “progressive.”  Over the last couple of years, I’ve probably wasted a thousand keystrokes doing that, so I might as well explain why. For the vast majority of human history, mankind has lived in a state of tyranny.  This probably started not long after cave man Ugh realized that his neighbor, Argh was weaker than him, and carried a smaller club.  After Argh’s untimely demise (with the exception of some tribal societies), the course of mankind was set. As mankind developed from hunter […]

Cognitive Dissonance Part II: A Wrench in the Indoctrination Machine

In the post on Cognitive Dissonance, I talked about the methods used by the left to indoctrinate youth, and then keep them indoctrinated by controlling the flow of information.  Now is the time to target one part of that apparatus, and throw a wrench into its works.  Education might be a great place to start. I say this because to achieve their planned “utopia,” the left must indoctrinate everyone.  Socialism, Fascism, and “Progressivism,” while all somewhat different in scope and application, are closely related in that they are totalitarian in nature.  The State takes on the role as final arbiter […]

Cognitive Dissonance: The Key to Defeating the Progressives

Cognitive Dissonance: The Key to Defeating the Progressives–When people experience the fruits of “Obama’s America,” they will likely feel a bit confused and hurt. ”The mental conflict that occurs when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information. The unease or tension that the conflict arouses in a person is relieved by one of several defensive maneuvers: the person rejects, explains away, or avoids the new information, persuades himself that no conflict really exists, reconciles the differences, or resorts to any other defensive means of preserving stability or order in his conception of the world and of himself.” -Encyclopedia Britannica […]

Greatest Hits: What is Barak Obama?

What is Barak Obama?–In early 2010, I took a look at the philosophical underpinnings of the messiah.  The political and religious “identity” of Barak Obama is a contentious and much debated topic these days.  Claims of, “He’s a Muslim,” and “ he’s a socialist,” abound.   The left, as well as the MSM are able to field these claims, and contradict them, at least partially.  They are able to do this because he’s neither of these things. Religion: While Obama may have a soft spot for Islam, he sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for over 20 years.  While Wright’s teachings are […]

List of Obama’s Military Purge, the count nears 200

List of Obama’s Military Purge, the count nears 200: Don pointed out that the messiah seems to be following the footsteps of Comrade Stalin. Hat/Tip to The Free Patriot. As quietly as he can, in his traditional “leading from behind” M.O., President Obama seems to be purging the military. The Free Patriot has published the actual list of military brass Obama has fired. When we brought you the 9 Military Commanders it was apparent that President Obama was purging the military top brass. When two days later two more were fired, many reporters started trying to get to the bottom of […]

Greatest Hits: The American Spirit – Do We Still Have It?

The American Spirit – Do We Still Have It? Jim challenged us to consider that very question.  Have you noticed, when talking to people on any issue at all, how difficult it is to get a definitive answer as to where they stand? That little word BUT keeps getting in the way. Brian Wilson, writing for LewRockwell.Com,  has some insights into what people really mean when they use that word, BUT.  It’s a very humorous article and it’s not very long. so skip on over and give it a quick read then come back and we’ll talk about a more serious aspect […]

Greatest Hits: Who are the Parents, and who are the Children?

Who are the Parents, and who are the Children? I asked this question in 2009, and I think the regressives continue to prove my conclusion every day. I’m certain that I’m not the only person that has noticed that the liberals tend to act like petulant children when they “don’t get their way.”  One has to look no further than the recent happenings in the Wisconsin State Legislature to see how far we have fallen. So what’s going on?  Why has does the left descend into tantrums when reality intervenes and ruins their plans?   Why do they deny others the […]

Greatest Hits: Some Brief Thoughts on the Nature of Ideological Warfare

Some Brief Thoughts on the Nature of Ideological Warfare:  I was proud that several people used this post as literature to hand out at Tea Party Rallies. Remember this quote from Michelle Obama? “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed.” She was far more prophetic than she will ever know. […]

Greatest Hits: Liberty Deserves Better From Me

Liberty Deserves Better From Me: John Carey made a rather strong point. Note that this post was originally published in 1-9-13 On this day in 1776 Thomas Paine published his pamphlet “Common Sense.”  This 47-page pamphlet made the arguments in favor of American independence.  Mr. Paine’s use of plain language spoke to the common people of America. It was also the first published pamphlet that openly argued for independence.  The powerful words of Mr. Paine helped galvanize a movement that before Common Sense was published was a scattered grumbling at best. Paine fundamentally changed the tenor of colonists’ argument with […]

Greatest Hits: All Your Children Are Belong to us: The Sequel

All Your Children Are Belong to us: The Sequel–The government owns you, your income, and your children too. Last April, I covered Melissa Harris-Perry’s comment that “All your children are belong to us,” and by “us,” I meant the state.  That stupidity, like all liberal stupidity, was repeated recently.  The Trifecta gang covered the state’s claim on our children… Here is the reaction, and quotes I used in the post on Harris-Perry’s claim on children. Now, this whole concept of children belonging to the “community,” read, the state, is not new at all. Here are some historical references… When an […]

Greatest Hits: Education: Our Greatest Battle?

Education: Our Greatest Battle?  And I fear we have already lost.  This is an article that I had commented on for another site some time ago. I thought that given the current climate of “change,” it might be a good idea to re-visit it. The article is eight years old, however, it seems to echo what is going on today. From the August 2001 Idaho Observer: Why Our Schools Teach Socialism By Joe Larson Congratulations America: Today there are over 10,000 openly marxist professors and thousands of humanist professors controlling the universities and colleges that produce America’s teachers and other […]

Greatest Hits: Common Core Math Problem Blasted by Parent

Common Core Math Problem Blasted by Parent–Typical regressive action: overly complex and leading to a false conclusion.  Common Core seems to be uncommonly stupid.  As social media allows the distribution of the nonsense, more and more Americans are finding out that the only thing common about the core is that it’s intrusive, nonsensical, and full of propaganda.  For the latest, here is a parent’s response to an overly complicated math problem… Of course, practical reality has nothing to do with education.  In fact, I believe that is intentional.  Reality doesn’t cooperate with the regressive agenda.  Common Core should be called […]

Greatest Hits: Intrusive Common Core Questionnaire

Intrusive Common Core Questionnaire:  And the government will never misuse personal information, would they? Here is a pic of a questionnaire sent home with a first grader.  The parent’s response indicates their opinion that it is part of common core. Sorry, but under common core, there is no privacy-only predetermined outcomes and attitudes, and millions of low information too dumb to realize that MSNBC is a propaganda outlet.

Greatest Hits: Common Core Math Assignments; Meant to Make People Stupid?

Common Core Math Assignments; Meant to Make People Stupid?:  Public schools dumbing people down?  It’s more likely than you think… Take a look at this common core math assignment and ask yourself if it is intentionally meant to make children stupid… Mina Boyd, whose kindergartener came home with a Common Core math workbook this week, noticed her daughter’s unusual frustration regarding one lesson entitled “Count and Write 20.” “Count and tell how many pieces of fruit. Write the number,” the assignment asks. To Boyd’s surprise, the math problem only included 19 countable apples despite several surrounding problems correctly showing 20. […]

Greatest Hits: Cultural Marxism

Cultural Marxism:  This is essentially the battle plan of the regressives.  When people “wake up,” or are questioning the differences between what they see, and what they have been taught, they frequently ask, “How did this happen?” People see others being rewarded for failure, or penalized for success.  Politicians lie, and lie egregiously.  People that tell the truth are vilified.  Professors and public school teachers consistently and persistently teach against our nation and heritage, and penalize those who do not “go along.”  Too many of our citizens believe that it is appropriate to confiscate the wealth of another to subsidize […]

Greatest Hits- High Cigarette Taxes Backfire Once Again: Illinois Latest State to Collide with Reality

High Cigarette Taxes Backfire Once Again: Illinois Latest State to Collide with Reality– Once again, cigarette taxes fail, but that won’t stop regressives from proposing them! Who would have thought that higher cigarette taxes would reduce tax revenue?  Well, anyone with a brain would have predictecd that, so I guess that’s why regressives went and did it anyway.  Hot Air has the details… With some time having passed to let the cash cow fatten, we should check back in and see what the fine citizens of the Land of Lincoln are doing with their new found largesse. I do hope they’re not […]
