    “At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” P.J. O’Rourke

    They are against religion, except where it forwards the LGBTQ (lunatic moonbat) agenda or some other cause dear to their hearts.

    “We at Washington National Cathedral are striving to send a message of love and affirmation, especially to LGBT youth who suffer daily because of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” he said. “We want to proclaim to them as proudly and unequivocally as we can: Your gender identity is good and your sexual orientation is good because that’s the way that God made you.”

    The General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2012 approved the ordination of transgender persons. The convention also approved a rite of blessing for same-sex unions, a decision that’s been a major contributor to the fracturing of Episcopal congregations. The cathedral performs same-sex marriages.

    Mr. Partridge’s visit should be seen as nothing out of the ordinary, according to Integrity USA, a nonprofit that advocates for full LGBT acceptance within the Episcopal Church.

    Really? Then why are you talking to news outlets about it?

    Q: What’s the difference between rats and DemocRATS?

    A: Studies show rats are capable of realizing they’ve made a bad choice and regretting it.

    It has become a byword for bad behaviour. But it seems the rat may not be as heartless as we think.

    Research shows that the rodents are capable of regret.

    If only Democrat Moonbats could learn that behavior.

    So which wave will signal the final, inevitable crash?

    The pride before the fall

    Look, the last thing I want to do is be a nattering nabob of negativism, but let’s be serious.

    There’s simply no reason for things to be the way they are other than rampant speculation, a bubble the likes of which has never, ever been seen before.

    And bubbles ALWAYS inevitably burst.

    There are so many comparisons one can make between what has been happening and what has happened before. Now past events are not a predictor of what may happen with complete certainty, but certain patterns tend to repeat.

    If you’re still in the market, be careful. Diversify. And only leave what you can afford to lose in the riskier investments.

    With any luck I’ll be wrong and those of you still exposed will make a ton and laugh at me. I’d like that. Really. I have what I need.

    Try and conceptualize what America will be like when people of European descent become the minority. Please don’t think for one moment these new non-white immigrants will embrace the principles and values the framers of the Constitution intended — they won’t. The fact is these new immigrants will most definitely reject freedom and liberty and favor statism. (Well, at least 4 out of five will.) Yet the Republican establishment believes the only way to stay a viable party is to grant amnesty to the estimated 12 to 28 million illegal aliens already here, and then triple the legal immigration limits from 1 million per year to 3 million. Are the Republican establishment complete morons or am I missing something?

    ‘Bergs and Bears and Climate Baloney

    In yet another harsh blow to Barack Hussein Obama, the United
    Nations, Al Gore, and the rest of the anthropogenic global warming scammers,
    Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Marine Warden Amie Egstad discovered
    icebergs with nesting seagulls still floating in Lake Superior last Friday June
    6th–two weeks shy of the beginning of summer.

    Floating ice with or without seagulls is a rarity in any of the
    Great Lakes this time of year, a rarity explained in a National Geographic
    report that summer temperatures there will probably be colder due to another
    rarity, the fact some 90% of the lakes had frozen over this past winter and a
    rarity which will undoubtedly be explained by the warmists as just another
    example of their catch-all phrase ”climate change.”

    They invented “climate change” after they were proven wrong on
    their global cooling hysteria in the 1970′s, which morphed into global warming,
    and back again to cooling as Mother Earth and her sun did what they have been
    doing for eons, running through their normal cyclical patterns.

    The warmists figured they would cover all weather bases, everything
    from droughts to blizzards, from August heat waves to June icebergs in the Great
    Lakes, by attributing those and other normal weather-related events to changing
    climate caused, of course, by polluting earthlings, without bothering mention
    that similar events have occurred more or less on a regular schedule for about
    six billion years and long before man built power plants and invented the
    internal combustion engine.

    It’s very doubtful that polar bears, those ice-loving behemoths of
    the Arctic, will travel south to the Great Lakes to fish and breed and thrive .

    Subject: Important – Medicare

    This came from a staunch Democrat friend of mine, so politics is not

    involved in this. Seniors on Medicare better hope they don’t need

    cancer treatment. If you don’t read this, and do nothing about it,

    don’t complain when it affects you or your loved ones!!!!! This is

    the second Judge to have read the Obama Care document and made

    comments. More highlights of Nancy ‘s “pass it and Then find out

    what’s in the bill”!!!!!! Show this to everyone nearing the ripe old

    age of 76. These are just a few of the things that we Seniors are

    going to have to deal with starting in 2014. Even far left Democrats

    will not like these.

    MEDICARE AT AGE 76, IMPORTANT PLEASE READ – ANYONE WHO DOUBTS THIS

    IS TRUE CAN DOWNLOAD THE NEW OBAMA CARE AND LOOK UP THE PAGES

    MENTIONED. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING………………….PLEASE PASS

    THIS OUTRAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!!! THIS should be read by

    everyone, especially important to those over 75……. If you are

    younger, then it may apply to your parents….

    Your hospital Medicare admittance has just changed under Obama Care.

    You must be admitted by your primary Physician in order for Medicare

    to pay for it! If you are admitted by an emergency room doctor it is

    treated as outpatient care where hospital costs are not covered. This

    is only the tip of the iceberg for Obama Care. Just wait to see what

    happens in this year and 2014!

    YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS… At age 76 when you need it most,

    you are not eligible for cancer treatment * see page 272. What Nancy

    Pelosi didn’t want us to know until after the healthcare bill was

    passed. Remember she said, “We have to pass the Bill so that we can

    see what’s in it.” Well, here it is.

    Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number THE CARE BILL HB 3200 JUDGE

    KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE

    BILL. Judge Kithil of Marble Falls , TX – highlighted the most

    egregious pages of HB3200 Please read this……. especially the

    reference to pages 58 & 59 JUDGE KITHIL wrote: ** Page 50/section

    152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even

    if they are here illegally.

    ** Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an

    individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make

    electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

    ** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the

    government) for all union members, union retirees and for community

    organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for

    Reform Now – ACORN)

    ** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not

    be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up

    with that?)

    ** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of

    specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees.

    This is what they do in Sweden too. I know because Alf’s daughter Ann

    is an OBGYN, and her husband, Thorsten, is a surgeon………

    ** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according

    to the patient’s age.

    ** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on

    hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an

    exception.

    ** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning

    consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an

    “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)

    ** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors

    can write an end-of-life order.

    HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify: “Finally, it

    is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of

    Congress.

    No wonder they did not see the need to read it….doesn’t apply to

    them!!! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP TO WASHINGTON …. I

    don’t know if we can do anything, but awareness helps.

    Winds Of Change — Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to

    forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address
