    Keeping Bieber 

    The people of twitter came up with a funny bet about the Men’s Olympic Hockey game.  Loser keeps Justin Bieber.  A sign in Chicago breaks the bad news that the U.S. gets to keep him.

    Quote of the Day – Wendy Pearson, Chicago Activist Edition 

    “The manner in which we have been voting needs to change.  I’m here to say to you that we have been trained to vote in a specific manner… we need to start looking at the manner in which our elected officials have been voting… if they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, yours, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.”

    There may be hope yet.  This was said at a town hall meeting given by Al Sharpton in Chicago.

      TEECHERS MUST HAV THE RITE TO STRYKE ! Expectifying them to be held accountable for their students` grades is asking entirely too much ! Even if Obama DID sign the law that establishes this requirement, this is just plain unfair !

      I heard today (missed the location) that since merit pay was out of the question, an up-front payment of $4,000. was given to teachers who were told, “Now, if your students do not improve their grades, you have to pay the money back !” The teachers performed well and the students` grades did too !

      The teachers weren`t impressed with the promise of money in the future for improvements (they get raises anyway, regardless of performance, and cannot be fired for any reason), but the fear of having to pay money back was an effective motivator ! Fascinating !

    Liberal Logic – Rahm Emanuel Edition 

    Rahm Emanuel, Chicago’s mayor, has put his liberal logic on full display for all the world to see. You see, the mayor decided to weigh in on the Chik Fil A non-controversy by announcing Chik Fil A doesn’t share “Chicago Values”. Really? It wasn’t all that long ago that the mayor admitted that some in his city have the wrong values.

    Now this same man has decided that the city needs the help of The Nation of Islam to patrol the streets to help cut down on the unending violence in the city now being dubbed “MurderTown”.

    So this idiot liberal would like to keep Chik Fil A from expanding in the City of Chicago, which of course violates our laws, because they believe in traditional marriage. This belief, held by millions around the country, is simply that marriage is between one woman and one man. It in no way wants to see discrimination against homosexuals. Gay people can do what ever they want to do with that one exception. That is it. We don’t call for violence against people, we don’t call for the death of anyone. We are simply stating that the institution of marriage is something that is held sacred and by redefining marriage we are being asked to accept beliefs that violate our religious views and conscience.

    Islam, however, is a very different story:

    The Sunan Abu Dawud, named after its editor, is another reliable collection of hadith. Ibn Abbas reports the following about early Islam and Muhammad’s punishment of homosexuals: . . . “If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done” (vol. 3, p. 145, no. 4447).

    The next one from the same collection says that an unmarried man who commits sodomy should be stoned to death: “Ibn Abbas said: if a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death” (vol. 3, p. 1245, no. 4448).

    Thus, these two passages in Sunan Abu Dawud go further than merely rejecting and banishing homosexuals or sexual sinners, as we saw in Bukhari’s collection. Rather, Ibn Abbas says that Muhammad and the early Muslim community commanded their execution.

    The hadith editor Timidhi repeats Ibn Abbas’ narration: “Ikrima reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas that God’s messenger [Muhammad] said: ‘If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.’” (Recorded in Mishkat al-Masabih, trans. James Robson, vol. 2, p. 763, Prescribed Punishments). In the same hadith collection, the Mishkhat al-Masabih, a compendium that brings together other hadith collections, are found the punishments of being burned to death and having heavy objects thrown on the guilty homosexuals:

    The Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan also have such a good record when it comes to your faith, Mr. Mayor:

    “[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man. He wasn’t a great man for me as a black person, but he was a great German. Now, I’m not proud of Hitler’s evils against Jewish people, but that’s a matter of record. He raised Germany up from nothing. Well, in a sense you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing.” — Louis Farrakhan, radio interview, March 11, 1984

    “Jews have been conclusively linked to the greatest criminal endeavor ever undertaken against an entire race of people … the black African Holocaust. … The effects of this unspeakable tragedy are still being felt among the peoples of the world at this very hour.” — The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (NOI book), 1991

    “Who are the slumlords in the Black community? The so-called Jews. … Who is it sucking our blood in the Black community? A white imposter Arab and a white imposter Jew.” — Speech by NOI national official Khalid Muhammad, Nov. 29, 1993

    “These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!” — Louis Farrakhan, Saviours’ Day speech, Feb. 26, 2006

    So these are Chicago Values. Good to know. With values like these, it is no wonder the murder rate is so high.

      A curious thing, this islam; on the one hand, homosexuals are to be executed, but as reported a couple weeks ago, a muslim had agreed to be voluntarily sodomized by 5 or more guys so that his rectum would be stretched large enough for the insertion of explosives. He wanted to become a human bomb. Would whittling down a length of closet rod deprive his buddies of some deviant sexual pleasure ? It`s permitted to have sex with goats, ya know !

      We know that it is OK in islam for the muslims to lie to infidels in the furtherance of the islamic cause, is it also OK to be sodomizer and sodomizee in the cause of islamic jihad ??

      Sorry ladies, I realize this is not standard dinner table fare, but the glaring hypocrisy of the ROP and what some, too many, on the left want to support or at least give appeasement to is just a bit disturbing to me ! And NO, I don`t normally spend a lot of time thinking on such subjects ! This one kinda “mooned me” as it were !

      But it’s such a “peaceful” cult, er uh, I mean religion.

      • SignPainterGuy 12:29 PM on 07/28/2012 Permalink | Reply

        “Peaceful”; they keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means !

    Quote of the Day – Rahm Emanuel Edition 

    “We`ve got two gang bangers, one standing next to a kid. Get away from that kid. Take yourself to the alley, don`t touch the children of the city of Chicago, don`t get near them. And it is about values. As I said then, Scott, who raised you? Where were you raised? And I don`t buy this case where people say they don`t have values. They do have values. They have the wrong values. Don`t come near the kids. Don’t touch them.”

    Mayor Emanuel answering a reporter on the fact that more people die in Chicago than in Afghanistan.

    A frightening stat isn’t it?  For the second time I agree with the mayor.  They have the wrong values.  But what are the causes of these wrong values?  Of course we will never know for sure, but I would venture to say it has something to do with how government behaves.

    Most of the gang violence in Chicago is by blacks.  So this is being said based only that fact.  I would like to know how many of these gang members have been raised in single families.  I would venture to say that the vast majority of them have been.  From what I have read from many gang members who are jailed or have been rehabilitated themselves, they have said that much of the allure of the gang life is a feeling of family and acceptance.  Why do they need a feeling of family?  One of the very worst things that the welfare system has done is make the black man virtually irrelevant.  Being a single mom is what gives you the best benefits, so sadly many have fallen into that trap.

    We have children being raised by single moms who are living around the poverty line.  They sometimes need to work long hours, or in some cases have substance abuse problems themselves.   They are most likely not well-educated and then we ask why they are raising children that have the wrong values.  We then add the fact that many of these young men have few to any positive male role models in their lives.  Fathers are pretty scarce in poverty-stricken areas.  A very sad state of affairs.

    This is part of the price we pay when we dependent on government to solve our problems.  The welfare entitlement programs are killing the black family and black men most especially.  We, as a society, need to wake up and realize that children growing up in single family homes and depending on government entitlements is a recipe for disaster, one that we see coming to fruition in the streets of Chicago.

      I love his outrage and shock over who raised these thugs. The same brain dead people who continue to vote for democrats and are a continual drain on all aspects of society, schools, health care and every aspect of our country’s finances. These people also get a total pass on the Obamacare tax but the working middle class who don’t have insurance are “free riders”. I want to scream when I hear the Democrats when they say the “free riders” overrun the emergency rooms and cost us more money. If you have an income, the hospitals will pursue you until you are dead to pay those bills. The welfare folks and illegals, not so much.

        It has been my experience that clinics and hospitals will accept weekly / monthly payments and as long as you keep up those payments, they have no problem with you, nor should anyone else !

        It`s fascinating how hospitals and clinics love knowing they`re getting CASH on a predictable schedule, even in smallish amounts !
