If I Were The Devil

As a child I grew up listening to Paul Harvey. When he came on the radio I knew it was time to be quiet and listen. If I didn’t mom, grandma or grandpa would thump me. I am glad they did because I learned a lot from Mr. Harvey. His clear reasoning and steady voice helped shape my young mind. I recently came across this piece he gave over the radio back in the 1960’s. Given what has transpired over the last fifty years, and lately in Ferguson, it is easy to see how frighteningly correct he was.

If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States.

I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .

If I were the Devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons, but not wise enough to control them.

If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle.

If I were the Devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps.

In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, Good Day.

Tidbits 5

Okay, so it’s time for me to vent just a bit. Here goes.

Since Colorado legalized pot, welfare recipients in that state have spent $23,608.53 (according to an analysis by National Review Online) of their welfare benefits (your tax dollars) at local pot shops. When Republicans tried to stop the abuse the states democrats blocked (a stoned population is easier to control) the measure. The Republicans eventually succeeded in passing a budget amendment that would stop the abuse although democrats opposed it all the way. Says a lot about their priorities doesn’t it.

The entire legalized drug concept has never made sense to me. I have heard all the arguments about how harmless pot is. Tell that to the mother of the kid killed by a stoned driver.

I have heard about how unfair it is to have dope smokers sitting in jail. Legalizing pot will save money on prisons drug addicts say. Am I the only one who understands that drug addicts will continue to rob and steal to support their habits? I won’t even mention what will happen when the cartels take over the legal pot business. Buying legal drugs with ill-gotten gains while funding foreign drug cartels, a concept only a liberal could love.

I have heard the arguments about how creative pot makes you. University studies show that while you may feel more creative you are actually less creative both while stoned and after sobering up. I have to admit, most so-called modern art looks like it came from a stoned artist, ie ridiculous or even downright ugly.

Then there are your poor lungs. They never got the whole “politically correct” concept that pot is okay. Because of that they simply cannot accept the “fact” that pot is harmless. There is no difference from your lungs perspective between tobacco smoke and pot smoke. I suspect that pot smoke is worse for two reasons. First it is inhaled deeper into the lungs. The particulate matter in the smoke clogs up the smallest capillaries first, depriving the body of much needed oxygen and laying the foundations for things like Emphysema and COPD. Second, the smoke is held in longer, allowing more of the lungs to be so clogged.

But, but they say, pot can be taxed and thus the state makes money. Yay! The state makes money poisoning its now easily mislead population of drug addicts. Only a liberal (or a tyrant) could love this.

So let me get this right. HAMAS uses schools, churches, hospitals and UN facilities to launch their rockets at Israel. They further advocate the use of civilians as human shields, exhorting their people to “die” for the cause. Hamas seeks the largest possible “Palestinian” body count possible knowing full well that little Barry’s hallelujah chorus will excoriate Israel for defending themselves. This, in the twisted minds of liberals somehow makes Israel evil.

The Israelis’ have demonstrated remarkable restraint to the fact that nearly three thousand HAMAS rockets have rained down on their country this year alone. And no, I don’t subscribe to the idea that just because nearly all of them were shot down before they could hurt anyone that Israel should simply turn the other cheek.

I think it is time that Israel stops worrying about world opinion and secures their country. To all of you who demand that Israel negotiate I ask one simple question. What is there to negotiate when the other side has only one demand, you must all die. Do you offer them a timetable for your own genocide? The tolerant liberal would likely say yes. I say no.

Your public school and/or college education will not have taught you this but, understand that the Jew’s have lived in Israel for thousands of years. The UN arrangement that created the Jewish state merely formalized some 3000 years of history. There has never been a Palestinian state where Israel is, or anywhere else for that matter. A Roman governor as an insult to the Jews gave the very name, Palestine, to a region of the mid-east (by way of comparison think southerner or westerner in the US). The “Palestinian People” is a myth created to further a militant islamic agenda.

Perhaps Israel should simply reoccupy/annex/absorb the territory it won defending itself from attacks and has “traded for peace” over the last 30 years. In those territories anyone displaying a weapon or wearing a mask gets shot on sight. Anyone harboring terrorists or their weapons gets a fair trial and a one way trip (permanent exile) to a refugee camp in some other God forsaken (Arabs seem absolutely unwilling to care for other Arabs) Arab country. Any mosque that preaches hate gets shut down. Schools teaching hate will be reorganized and the teachers replaced. Any muslim convicted in a fair trial of being a terrorist gets smeared with pig fat and sent to meet allah. I know, that makes me mean but when you are dealing with those who use the rape women and killing of children as an acceptable tactic to achieve their goals mean is often times the only option.

Finally, why do we have to fund HAMAS in the first place? Why is it that our government sees the murder of innocents as a worthwhile cause to throw our money at? I know they are little Barry’s muslim buddies but what is the fascination with drowning yourself in the blood of innocents?

In an undeclared act of political payback little Barry has begun the process of transferring billions of your tax dollars to some of his most die-hard supporters, the trial lawyers. Rest assured, despite little Barry’s “pronouncement” to the contrary, every one of the surge “children” that makes it across the border will be given years of legal wrangling designed to keep them in the country and tax payer cash flowing to some of his largest donors.

Currently there are more than 366,000 pending deportation cases with average wait times nationally of nearly 600 days. Handling these cases are 59 immigration courts staffed by 235 judges. In plain English, the system is designed to keep all illegal aliens, even the criminals, in the US as long as possible. Groups like the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center and the American Friends Service Committee make millions of dollars from this “administrative” bottleneck.

As if this isn’t bad enough little Barry has weaponized the federal Executive Office for Immigration Review and its unaccountable appellate arm, the Board of Immigration Appeals. Never heard of them? That was by design.

The Board of Immigration Appeals has 15 unaccountable members (many of them openly supporting amnesty) who are politically appointed career bureaucrats. The BIA has the power to and frequently does, overturn deportation orders nationwide. Its critics accuse the BIA of routinely putting illegal aliens’ “rights” over US citizens’ safety. The record seems to undeniably confirm that. With the drug cartels running amuck in Mexico and Central America the ordinary street thugs are desperately trying to get to the US where the working environment is a lot safer. Little Barry and his minions seem hell bent on supporting them.

Finally, as a Navy veteran, I simply have to put in my two cents on the Jesse Ventura settlement. In my opinion Jesse is the scum that scum scrape of their feet. What kind of low life chooses to attack the wife/widow and children of a real American hero? As for his claim that his reputation was somehow damaged by Kyles “claims” all I can say is, have you seen Jesse’s conspiracy show? I think he shredded his credibility long before Chris Kyle came along.

There is one other thing that has always bothered me about the widow abusing Ventura. That is his claim to be a Navy SEAL. Lets be honest here. Jesse was a frogman. A demanding profession to be sure. Yes the frogmen were “merged” with SEAL teams. But as for being an actual SEAL, ie going through the torturous training process that prospective SEALS complete, that is a journey (according to numerous public reports) Jesse never made. Why he continues with this claim is a mystery to me. Perhaps his hairdresser pulled that Mickey Mouse looking ponytail just a little to tight.
