THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

OUR GOVERNMENT THREATENS __________ [Fill In The Blank]

.
Many of you may have already seen the letter that follows. My friend ‘THE KANSAS KID’ sent it to me a-way back on January 2nd and I’ve been meaning to post it. And now that I am stalling for time while I work on a 3-part blog bit about that Book – that Book about circumcision, fantastic fables, drunken fishermen, and a “Santa Claus god”; that Book which atheists, most liberals and other gutter dogs detest – while I work on a 3-part blog bit about that Book, I figure NOW is a good time to post this letter: 
.
.
A Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green,
the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
.
When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.
.
We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do.
.
We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.
.
But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance.
.
Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one.
.
If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.
.
Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right.
.
I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true. The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.
.
So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.
.
My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American business should have to make.
.
The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not except Christian organizations including the Catholic church.
.
Sincerely,
David Green,
CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
.
I applaud Mr. Green for what he wrote and I am in total agreement with it. That letter almost makes me want to apply for a job at a Hobby Lobby store . . . if they don’t all take their arts and crafts and go home first.
.
The only thing I’d question though is this: How many products offered for sale in Hobby Lobby stores were produced in China, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, United Arab Emirates and/or other places with a record of awful human rights abuses?
.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever even been in a Hobby Lobby, but I do know that most arts and crafts shops are full of products from the above mentioned countries and more. What’s sadder still is that most Christian bookstores are also loaded with Indonesian, East Indian, and Communist Chinese goods for sale. In an American Christian bookstore you can purchase a ceramic statue of Jesus manufactured in a prison-factory by a Chinese Christian who is being “reeducated” via forced labor. What was that word Jesus used so often that started with an “h”?
.
None of us lives up to the standard that Jesus called us to, myself certainly included. But when one’s transgressions against that standard also earns them a monetary profit? Well . . .

‘THE SANDY HOOK SHOW’ ...ENCORE!

.
“Bond, James Bond”; Batman; Aurora; Hurricane Sandy; ‘Sandy Hook Lingerie Party Massacre’; Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting; and “THEY Broke The Law”.
.
At what point do coincidences become something else entirely? I don’t know. You’ll need to answer that yourself. I am not a big believer in coincidences. Oh, I definitely know that coincidences do occur, so I don’t like to “jump the gun” (pardon the pun).
.
But I tend to be especially skeptical about coincidences when it comes to spiritual matters. If there is an ETERNAL God, and that God created EVERYTHING that has been created, then everything is somehow linked to the ONE. If my starting point of reasoning is correct (i.e., that there is an ETERNAL Creator) then my conclusion is plain enough, isn’t it? [Special Note To FAE - Coming soon in SES #11: “You cannot have an Eternal God and anything else.” To be explained soon enough.]
.
I told myself I wasn’t going to spend much time investigating the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut on December 14, 2012 (do I really need any more reason to distrust my government?), but every time I go to YouTube and look up one video, it leads to no less than two hours of video viewing. I gotta break this addiction, damn it! (“Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in”.)
.
While I’m practicing ‘Sandy Hook’ abstinence, let me share with you the highlights of what my hours of YouTube surfing unearthed earlier last week. A lot of coincidences? Maybe. YOU be the judge. Below are videos accompanied by some comments (in red) submitted to YouTube by viewers whom I do not know.
.
SANDY HOOK & AURORA In BATMAN Movie!!
.
 .
.
At no point in the Batman movie is the "Aurora" sign shown. That screencap is from [the James Bond movie] ‘SKYFALL’.
.
Actually the southern section of Gotham City was previously named South Hinkley in ‘BATMAN BEGINS’, not Sandy Hook.
.
It does seem very far-fetched but I have to admit, it is all a bit strange. Not only has the southern section of Gotham City been changed from South Hinkley to Sandy Hook and is pointed to as the strike zone, but as someone pointed out, you count the red circles and squares and there are 26... 26 people died. Then the guy who was in charge of props for the movie happens to die last year even though his injuires were supposedly non-life threatening. Something doesn't sit right.
.
Well I just looked on my blue ray copy of this movie. I managed to find the "Sandy Hook" map. and YES it IS THERE! I’m kinda freaked out... I wasn’t able to find the aurora building.
.

“Seven Strippers, A Deadly Hurricane, A Haunted Lighthouse, Hanky Panky, And Of Course Blood, Gore And MURDER”
.
"MASSACARE"? Really? Is we exspected to beleeve that the promotur of this moovy really misspelld the word "massacre" on his moovy pose(t)ur? Or do this be mo' United Sucks Government disinfo'mation?
.
"Sandy Hook Party Lingerie Massacre" (2000 = 2012)
.
 .
.
Below is the opening portion of a review of the movie ‘SANDY HOOK LINGERIE PARTY MASSACRE’ (2000) posted by Luisito Joaquín González (whoever that is) on July 20, 2012... the same date of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theatre shooting during a showing of the Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’:
.
So here we have Sandy Hook Lingerie Party Massacre. Let’s say that again, SANDY HOOK LINGERIE PARTY MASSACRE! What do you think of when you see that combination of words? What’s in a title anyway? Does it have a cryptic meaning? Who is Sandy Hook? What on earth am I writing about? Let’s move on...
.
Ok this is another of the many party-massacre flicks that includes the likes of: Bikini Party Massacre (Not to be confused with Bikini Girls on Ice), Bachelor Party Massacre, Rock Party Massacre, Pajama Party Massacre and the daddy of them all, Slumber Party Massacre.
.
Very hard to find on any format (I picked up mine in Moscow), . . .

MUST see! SANDY HOOK's Stephen Barton Shot in BATMAN movie! FROM Sandy Hook!!?

Newtown Father Speaks out on Gun Laws
.
 .
.
Mark Mattioli, father of one of the Newtown Sandy Hook shooting victims, testifies before a gun violence task force in Hartford, Connecticut on 1/28/2013.
.
“Criminals, by definition, break the law. What we experienced in Sandy Hook, did they break the law? Of course they broke the law.”
.
Pardon me for asking but, who is the “they” who broke the law? Adam Lanza and . . . who else?
.
I can so well relate to the person who posted the following comment at YouTube:
.
You know, sometimes I would almost trade anything to go back to not knowing or caring. Literally feels like the weight of the world on your shoulders when you know too much about what is going on, then you feel as the mad man or Cassandra when you try and share it with people. The programming is just too thick.
.
Believe me, dude, I feel that same “weight of the world” on my shoulders. Wish I could shrug it off, but I can’t.
.
People think Sandy Hook is a hoax: Why?
.
 .
.
FU-UUUUU-DGE!
Was that for real? Did CNN really broadcast that edited clip? I find that hard to believe (and believe me, people, I can believe almost anything when it comes to our demonically-possessed government!)
.
Someone at YouTube wrote:
CNN looks like sat. nite live show.
.
No shhhhh…t!
.
Hokey-Smoke! How many of you have seen the 1997 movie ‘WAG THE DOG’ starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro, and directed by Barry Levinson? I’ve seen it twice. If you’ve NEVER seen it, you should put it on your NetFlix queue and bump it up to the #1 position . . . and I mean RIGHT NOW!

OBAMA: WILL YOU KILL AMERICANS FOR ME? (TRAITOROUS TROOPS AND LITTLE PIGGIES PRACTICE)

.
.
In my recent blog bit titled Gun Rights Vs. Gun Control (Or, Protect Your Teeth To Save Your Tongue) I related the fact that on May 10, 1994, 300 Marines at the Twenty-Nine Palms Marine Corps base were instructed by Lt. Commander Guy Cunningham to fill out a 46-question Combat Arms Survey which included a number of disturbing questions including whether or not they would follow orders to fire upon U.S. citizens who refused or resisted confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government.
.
Some of my readers may have dismissed that as being so long ago that it’s really not relevant anymore. WRONG!
.
Below, in red, are quotes related to the Gun Control controversy that were posted by various bloggers and which I’ve collected from blogs I’ve recently read here at Blogspot. Following the quotes will be a very, Very, VERY interesting video for y’all to watch. After watching the video, see if you still believe the May 10, 1994 survey administered to Marines at the Twenty-Nine Palms Marine Corps base was so long ago that it’s no longer worth thinking about. Or, does it represent a goal that Uncle Sam has been shooting for (pun intended) for a long time and which Barack Obama seems especially dedicated to at this point?
.
OBAMA: WILL YOU KILL AMERICANS 
FOR ME? 
.
As a society, we have shown that we can't play nicely with our gun toys, so we should have them taken away and locked up until such a point that we can show we are mature enough to handle them. Period.
.
I WANT GUN CONTROL FOR CHRISTMAS.
.
Are you saying that if the US takes away their guns then the US government will round up all the pro gun citizens and have them exterminated? I think not.
.
People are the dysfunction, but why hold onto something we see and disdain in other parts of the world? (the brandishing of arms)
.
Automatic weapons should be banned in my opinion. … The fact that so many people feel they need one is what troubles me.
.
It really is time that America stopped having the 'Wild West' mentality. Check worldwide stats where there is gun control.
.

TRAITOROUS TROOPS AND LITTLE PIGGIES PRACTICE
.
Also in my aforementioned blog bit Gun Rights Vs. Gun Control (Or, Protect Your Teeth To Save Your Tongue) I wrote the following:
.
For a couple decades now, military and paramilitary exercises involving live ammunition have been conducted at night in urban areas in various states across the nation.
.
I’ll bet you thought I was just bullshitting, huh? “Oh, don’t pay any attention to Stephen, he’s just one of those tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nut-jobs.” Is that what you thought? Well, below are some more general quotes (in red) from some of our fellow bloggers, followed by a video you really, Really, REALLY need to watch:
.
In the face of the recent mass killings in your country, I think it's a little insulting to the victims to insist that you have the 'right' to own such a weapon. And to live in fear that your own government will turn against you?? sounds like a lot of paranoia to me.
.
I do have a problem with people owning assault rifles. Just what are they expecting?
.
Trying to defend the Second Amendment as a protection against a tyrannical Government is nonsense.
.
I cannot and will not accept the premise that the government is our enemy.
.
What concerns me … is the element of fear displayed by the NEED to bear arms - fear of your fellow man, but even more sinister: fear of your own government? Maybe I'm just naive, but I'm glad we don't have readily available firearms in my country.
.
There is absolutely no reason that civilians should have access to assault weapons.
.
There is no need for any private citizen to own an assault rifle or any weapon that has the potential of killing dozens of people in a burst of seconds.
.
I dunno...I guess I don't see what this "Enemy" is or can even begin to understand why you feel so threatened.
.
 Machine gun fire from military helicopters flying over downtown Miami Fl.

.
Alright, m-m-m-ove along now. Th-th-there's nothing left to see here. That's all folks. Hmmm... I like the sound of that... Th-th-th-that's all, folks!
.
If you pay close attention to the lyrics in the following song, you will discover that they seem to include cloaked clues about what Uncle Sam is planning to do to We The People in the very near future:
.

Seriously, if I didn’t try to find a way to laugh about some of this stuffs I’d perhaps lose what's left of my mind and go Postal Piggy.
