This city cannot take this lying down. Some are calling for phone calls to the NFL offices. What do you think about taking to the streets in peaceful protest.
what the coaches and players did was despicable if they did commit the offenses of which they are accused. If someone deliberately injured me such that it ended my career, he or she would be criminally libel. why is this any different. some would say worse because some of these players have few other options. Saints got what they deserved but make sure other teams do too.
Why is the media so silent about Obama’s Attorney stating that the Birth Certificate IS a fraud but cannot and should not be part of his eligibility?
Please address this problem of Obama’s Attorney saying his Birth Certificate being a fraud! The site is below!!
Apparently your caller Fergus, host of his own show – ‘The Stateless Man’ – hasn’t waited in line at 4:00 in the morning outside of a temporary employment agency in New Orleans to be one of the first to sign-in so that he might get out on a job by noon and make 50 dollars by the end of the day; fifty dollars or so out of which various taxes would be deducted.
Fergus errs in his failure to appreciate that to be American one must assent to the belief that ‘We hold certain truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator,the Lord Jesus, with certain unalienable Rights. These are truths that ‘We’ hold dear.
Fergus’ analogy which makes ‘We the People’ analagous to a piece of machinery and therefore concludes it only practical and expedient to choose the illegal, cheaper piece of machinery deprives ‘We the People’ of our God given right to the pursuit of happiness to the degree that one may define said ‘pursuit of happiness’ materialistically.
Employing Fergus’ socialist worldview would have us necessarily equally divide all material between everyone and create a “utopia” – do you know what ‘utopia’ means in Greek Jeff: “NO PLACE.” We’ve seen again and again how the socialist ‘hope and change’ for their proposed utopian society plays out. The first thing that happens is that one elite group suddenly becomes a hell of a lot more equal than the rest.
Consider what Frederic Bastiat wrote in ‘The Law’ before you engage Fergus in discussion or you’ll facilitate his leading your audience into the darkness of the lies of the lying liberal legions.
Maureen Dowd recently wrote a scathing editorial, ‘Dreaming of a Superhero,’ (New York Times,) criticizing her one-time “superhero,” Barack Hussein Obama. Arriving at her conclusions, Ms. Dowd wrote, “But superheroes and mythic figures must boldly lead,” and that “Obama’s caution…” “…has restrained him at times.”
Though Ms. Dowd exhibits disdain in her article for her ‘flagging’ ‘superhero,’ she continues to embrace and defend the faulty underlying worldview that determines her warped mindset and creates such falsified perceptions of individuals as ‘supermen.’
I shall in from this point on stand on the shoulders of Frederic Bastiat to make my point as regards the liberal socialist’s concept of the ‘superhero’ or ‘superman’ and allow Mr. Bastiat to illustrate the connection within the liberal socialist mindset between their perception of the superhuman elite legislative leaders and their utopian concept of distribution of wealth proposed by the Socialists and advanced by Fergus Hodgson in his analogy today on ‘Ringside Politics with a Punch’ of the American citizen to a piece of machinery.
Illuminating the fraudulent concepts of both the liberal socialist’s “superhuman idea” and their proposed “utopian” society wherein all wealth is distributed equally I hope to enlighten the reader as to the deviously deceptive and dangerous nature of Socialism.
“The Superman Idea
The claims of these organizers of humanity raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered: If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction.
Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind; if so, let them show titles to this superiority.”
They would be shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority.” (The Law. The Classic Blueprint for a Just Society. By Frederic Bastiat. Copyright 1998. Pp. 63-64.)
Ms. Dowd asserts in her article that “…superheroes and mythic figures must boldly lead,” while maintaining that Obama’s caution may have restrained him at times, but Mr. Bastiat asserts that if “…the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven and intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind…” into some “superhero” leadership class, then “…if so, let them show titles to this superiority.” Mr. Obama has shown no identifiable restraint while criminally occupying the presidency; he has without restraint trampled the constitution underfoot.
Self designated “elite,” enigmatically gifted from on High with great new insight, (i.e. Gnostic), legislator-leader-organizers of the “progressive” liberal construct of a “community” take it upon themselves to determine just what moral principles the rest of society are to embrace as politically and societally correct, but ‘We the People’ within American society say without reservation, “Show us your titles to this superiority” you assert you possess and by what right determine to ‘boldly lead’ the rest of us within the godless framework of your faulty worldview.
The idolatrous agenda of those “progressive” liberal socialist advocates who attempt to influence every aspect of society is the agenda of Socialism.
“Socialists look upon people as raw material to be formed into social combinations. To them — the elite — the relation between persons and the legislator appears to be the same as the relationship between the clay and the potter.” (The Law. The Classic Blueprint for a Just Society. By Frederic Bastiat. Copyright 1998. PP. v. vi.) The “legislator” in the previous quote would of course refer to the self-proclaimed liberal elites – Ms. Dowd’s “superheroes” who she contends should boldy lead! – who maintain that they have some enigmatic, gnostic-like great new insight into what it is that the rest of society needs and that whatever it is that they determine we need they have the God-given, ‘superhuman’ authority to see that we get it whether it is what ‘We the People’ want or not.
“The Indirect Approach to Despotism
Usually, however, these gentlemen — the reformers, the legislators, and the writers on public affairs…, ” (writers such as Ms. Dowd,) “…do not desire to impose direct despotism upon mankind. Oh, no, they are too moderate and philanthropic for such direct action. Instead, they turn to the law for this despotism, this absolutism, this omnipotence. They desire only to make the laws.” (The Law. Pg. 56.)
“The Vicious Circle of Socialism
We shall never escape from this circle: the idea of passive mankind, and the power of the law being used by a great man to propel the people.
Once on this incline, will society enjoy some liberty? (Certainly.) And what is liberty…” (The Law. Pg. 58) “…liberty is power. Of what does this power consist? (Of being educated and of being given the tools of production.) Who is to give the education and the tools of production? (Society, which owes them to everyone.) By what action is society to give tools of production to those who do not own them? (why by the action of the state.) And from whom will the state take them?
Let the reader answer that question. Let him also notice the direction in which this is taking us.
The Doctrine of the Democrats
The strange phenomenon of our times — one which will probably astound our descendants — is the doctrine based on this triple hypothesis: the total inertness of mankind, the omnipotence of the law, and the infallibility of the legislator. These three ideas form the sacred symbol of those who proclaim themselves totally democratic.
The advocates of this doctrine also profess to be social. So far as they are democratic, they place unlimited faith in mankind. But so far as they are social, they regard mankind as little better than mud. Let us examine this contrast in greater detail.
What is the attitude of the democratic when political rights are under discussion? How does he regard the people when a legislator is to be chosen? Ah, then it is claimed that the people have an instinctive wisdom; they are gifted with the finest perception; their will is always right; the general will cannot err; voting cannot be too universal.
When it is time to vote, apparently the voter is not to be asked for any guarantee of his wisdom. His will and capacity to choose wisely are taken for granted. Can the people be mistaken? Are we not living in an age of enlightenment? What! Are the people always to be kept on leashes? Have they not won their rights by great effort and sacrifice? Have they not given ample proof of their intelligence and wisdom? Are they not adults Are they not capable of judging for themselves? Do they not know what is best for themselves? Is there a class or a man who would be so bold as to set himself above the people, and judge and act for them? No, no, the people are and should be free. They desire to manage their own affairs, and they shall do so.
But when the legislator is finally elected — ah! Then indeed the tone of his speech undergoes radical change. The people are returned to passiveness, inertness, and unconciousness; the legislator enters into omnipotence. Now it is time for him to initiate, to direct, to propel, and to organize. Mankind has only to submit; the hour of despotism has struck. We now observe this fatal idea: The people who, during the election, were so wise, so moral, and so perfect, now have no tendencies whatever; or if they have any, they are tendencies that lead downward into degradation.” (The Law. Pp. 59-61.)
“…the conscience of the social democrats cannot permit persons to have any liberty because they believe that the nature of mankind tends always toward every kind of degradation and disaster. Thus, of course, the legislators must make plans for the people in order to save them from themselves.” (The Law. Pg. 63.)
