Greasing The Slide Into The Moral Abyss


Just as surely as God sent Jonah after the Assyrians to drive them to their knees in repentance, He will also call us to judgement as a nation.

I keep thinking, "It can't get any worse," but it does. Not only do we butcher children in the womb, but we also explore new ways to corrupt them morally and spiritually and then try to make a buck from it. God preserve us.

The above photo captures a scene from  the single session of "Topless Showgirls" which starred elementary school children.
 "My outfit was pretty tiny," young dancer Mackenzie told the cameras. "I could fit this on my American Doll."
This Lifetime show has been cancelled - perhaps after the producers and participating mothers received death threats - but to even conceive of programming like this and actually create it is beyond the pale.
Who in their right minds would watch this dreck?

Yeah, right. Television now panders to the lowest level of perverts.

NYC Is Still A Very Dangerous Place - For Babies


From the National Review:
Today the Chiaroscuro Foundation released an interactive map illustrating the abortion ratio by zip code in New York City from 2000 to 2009. This is a continuation of our effort to raise awareness of the extremely high rate of abortion in New York City.

Much could be said about these data. While the total number of abortions, as well as the abortion ratio, is down over the period citywide, both the number of abortions and the abortion ratio increased in the majority of zip codes, indicating uneven progress. The number of live births also increased in the majority of zip codes. A number of zip codes were among the ten zip codes with the highest ratio for at least five years. Two zip codes, 11212 and 11233, were in the top ten in eight of the ten years, and one, 11216, was in the top ten every year. These three zip codes are contiguous in central Brooklyn, at the confluence of the Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods.
What does this mean? View the map here:
NEW YORK CITY RELEASES 2010 ABORTION DATA;
LITTLE PROGRESS FROM PREVIOUS YEAR
City Pregnancies Ending in Abortion 40%, Down from 41% in 2009
48% in the Bronx and 60% Among African-Americans, Same as in 2009

New York, NY, January 5...More than 83,000 abortions were performed in New York City in 2010 - a full 40% of all pregnancies - down from 41% in 2009 - the New York City-based Chiaroscuro Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that supports alternatives to abortion, today said. The 2010 data was just released to the public by the New York City Department of Health. For the first time ever, the abortion and pregnancy statistics were itemized separately as requested by the Foundation one year ago this week.

Tweet, Tweet, Tweet...


The DA is tossing her some seed and the Millionaire Madame is singing; we all knew she would.

And for her warm-up number she's singing the John Edwards' theme song, "If You Can't Be With The One You Love, Love The One You're Paying For."
MANHATTAN — A call girl working for alleged "Millionaire Madam" Anna Gristina told investigators she was paid to have sex with former U.S. Sen. John Edwards when he was in New York raising money for his failed presidential bid, DNAinfo has learned.

Edwards is the first big name to surface in connection to Gristina's alleged prostitution scheme run out of an Upper East Side apartment.
And there will be more to come.

Get it? heh heh

Amazon.com - Tax Warrior


The State of Illinois thought that it would be a good idea to extort money from online retailors by levying a user tax. State politicians and bureaucrats were drooling over the prospect of wringing collecting an extra $150 million to piss away on the usual suspects.

WRONG!
The law redefined what constitutes a company's "physical presence" in the state, which is the benchmark used to determine if an out-of-state retailer is required to collect use tax from Illinois customers. Legislators determined that a company simply having an affiliate program in the state—where independent websites provide links back to the retailer in exchange for a small commission—was enough of a "presence" to meet the criteria.

Following a pattern already established in other states that passed similar laws, large online retailers like Amazon.com and Overstock.com simply terminated all affiliate agreements in Illinois, opting themselves out of having to collect the tax.

[...]

The result? An actual decrease in use tax collected of over $11 million. Numbers given to Chicagoist by the Illinois Department of Revenue show that in the period of January 2011 through June 2011, IDOR collected approximately $139 million in use tax. After the law went into effect on July 1, the total amount collected between then and the end of the year was approximately $127 million.

[...]

Not only did smaller websites based in Illinois lose a revenue stream, but larger companies that rely more heavily on affiliate income like Fat Wallet and Coupon Cabin simply packed up and moved to neighboring states, taking their jobs and income tax with them.

Keep Your Powder Dry


Please listen to the video before commenting.

Will it come to this? I don't know. I pray to God it doesn't but we live in evil times.

I never thought that I would see the likes of Obama and his cronies running our Nation.

I never thought that I would witness such bold attacks on the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

I never thought that the media would not only stand idly by while this was occurring, but would whole-heartedly endorse America's slide into state run slavery.

There are plenty of guns in America, 250 million or so, removing the need to "liberate" an armory as the vets did in McMinn County back in 1946.

But does America still have the steel to do it? I don't doubt that our vets do, they have already proved themselves.

My doubts lie with those who have never taken an oath to defend the Constitution against all aggressors, foreign and domestic.

Heavenly Father, please give us clarity of thought, focus and the courage for what we must do to perserve our liberties, should the need arise.

Let's not get crazy about this ... but keep your powder dry.
