They Think Big Thoughts?

October 11, 2010 Comments off

Big Government posted the Ricochet podcast, entitled “The Brain Sandwich”. I was surprised that Rich Lowry didn’t sound Conservative and David Brooks I could do without. Peter Robinson, want’s to be pro immigration and doesn’t see the established path for citizenship for the pass several decades. That is my major beef with this podcast, the immigration portion.

Big brains on the big show this week as Rob Long and Peter Robinson are joined by New York Times columnist David Brooks and National Review Editor-In-Chief Rich Lowry. They think big thoughts about entitlements, the Bush tax cuts, Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels, Bob Gates for president, potential democratic challengers, and whether infidelity is the root of all social evil.

I will not buy the argument that illegals do our jobs so therefore we shouldn’t press the border issue to hard because the benefit of having illegals work outweighs the cost of securing our border. Is this, or is this not America? What is this dolt talking about? He would rather not enforce laws because Latinos work at jobs? I tell you what, you start eliminating the illegal presence within jobs that actual Americans may utilize, I think the economy would show significant gain.

You pass then enforce the Arizona immigration law federally, as it mirrors federal law to its core. Then as this nation-wide application of already established law begins, especially in California as the podcast specifies, then the expiring of extended unemployment benefits may coincide. In this way, Americans are given the choice of work, or no money. I would think Americans would choose the work the illegals who were either deported because of felony, or stay due to comprehensive work programs left over by Americans who will not occupy the positions.

This is obviously a start and a rough sketch of principles necessary for enforcement through law. None of the individuals on the Ricochet podcast even glanced at any possibility. Where the result is an overwhelming of traditional values and institutions, namely LAW! I mean come on, this is basic, nobody used it as a counter-argument, there was no critical thinking or debate to challenge little ideas and make them into truly big ones.

Where is the discussion of such sensible policies that I have laid out, if not in specificity then in principle? Ummm, nowhere!

I can smell the victory from here!

Gallup released some figures, in which are very favorable for Conservatives. It seems we now hold a solid majority. CNS News has some additional commentary definitely worth checking out.

Angle as ‘Snow White’ – Harry Reid a cult member

Thank you HuffPo for pointing this out. Now if I could only consider HuffPo genuine in their reporting and not merely using this to show the intolerance of Christians or something.

Sharon Angle and Snow White

So according to Sharron Angle’s pastor she is perfect and Harry Reid is a cult member. I got news for the pastor, Angle is a sinner just like Reid. She may have a framework of which is much more Biblical and practices repentance, but she is still just a human. Trust me there is dirt on her, it may not be as bad as Reid but to think that she is squeaky clean is obnoxious. No human is good always and forever.

The Pastor, John Reed ought to know better and should just be quiet unless he wants to fully display the truth of the human condition in relation to Biblical teachings.

Conservatism – what is it?

October 6, 2010 2 comments

Conservatism is a political philosophy supporting historically inherited nationally important and stable institutions that ensure the maintenance of individual liberty. Individual reliance on institutions such as education and religion feed the notion of self-discipline and something bigger then ourselves helping control the inherent selfishness of peoples unrestricted passions. Edmund Burke (January 1729 to July 1797) defines these institutions as, “a sufficient restraint upon their passions.” Manifestations of civil social order is a vital component to conservatism that is seen as a method to focus the best characteristics of an individual and thus the community, the reliance upon inherently produces a skepticism of the ability to form an effective relationship between the federal, national government and the individual. It is therefore concluded, as a conservative, that the less involvement by the federal government and the celebrating of historically moral and civil institutions, the better chance for individual liberty. Government at the more abstract, above the local and state level is seen as unnecessary until a specific and transparent, incremental and representative action is required.

Now that I have properly introduced myself, I suppose there is little else to say. Welcome and enjoy thoughtfulness in thought.
