How else do you think Demoncraps won an election? Convincing the majority of Americans that their policies were fairer and more likely to lead to national success? Pfaw!

What about convincing the public that Republican policies under Bush were a major disaster for the country? Couldn't be! We enjoyed eight years of God's blessing when we had a white Christian in the WHITE House. Eight years of peace and economic growth that took a disastrous reversal in 2009 when Barack the Islamic Shock Nobongo took office and got us into two wars against his Shi'ite enemies and bankrupted us to pay for the health care of poor people.

I thought that was Marco Rubio's father. [Refers to Rubio's autobiography "An American Son"] Ah, my mistake. It says here that Marco Rubio's father fled to America after an unsuccessful attempt with the pilgrims, the surviving disciples of Jesus Christ, and the founding fathers to prevent Megatron and the rest of the Decepticons to annexing Cuba for the sake of transporting energon cubes back to Cybertron.

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity [lawlessness].

2 Tim 4:2 [NIV] Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.
2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
2 Tim 4:4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

My mother, may she rest in peace, got progressively more regressive as she got older*.  By the time I was in my late teens, she was friendly with folks who were vehemently opposed to the UN and its "New World Order" - and this was in the late 80s.  One summer she wanted to send me to a John Birch Society summer camp.  I declined.

Oh, we're meetin' at the courthouse at eight o'clock tonight
You just walk in the door and take the first turn to the right
Be careful when you get there, we hate to be bereft
But we're taking down the names of everybody turning left

Oh, we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Here to save our country from a communistic plot
Join the John Birch Society, help us fill the ranks
To get this movement started we need lots of tools and cranks

Now there's no one that we're certain the Kremlin doesn't touch
We think that Westbrook Pegler doth protest a bit too much
We only hail the hero from whom we got our name
We're not sure what he did but he's our hero just the same

Oh, we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Socialism is the ism dismalest of all
Join the John Birch Society, there's so much to do

Have you heard they're serving vodka at the WCTU?
Well you've heard about the agents that we've already named
Well MPA has agents that are flauntedly unashamed
We're after Rosie Clooney, we've gotten Pinkie Lee
And the day we get Red Skelton won't that be a victory

Oh we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Norman Vincent Peale may think he's kidding us along
But the John Birch Society knows he spilled the beans
He keeps on preaching brotherhood, but we know what he means

We'll teach you how to spot 'em in the cities or the sticks
For even Jasper Junction is just full of Bolsheviks
The CIA's subversive and so's the FCC
There's no one left but thee and we, and we're not sure of thee

Oh, we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Here to save our country from a communistic plot
Join the John Birch Society holding off the Reds
We'll use our hand and hearts and if we must we'll use our heads

Do you want Justice Warren for your Commissar?
Do you want Mrs. Krushchev in there with the DAR?
You cannot trust your neighbor or even next of kin
If mommie is a commie then you gotta turn her in

Oh, we're the John Birch Society, the John Birch Society
Fighting for the right to fight the right fight for the Right
Join the John Birch Society as we're marching on
And we'll all be glad to see you when we're meeting in the John
The John, the John Birch So- ci- i- teee.

Hmm, my grandmother didn't survive her cancer (although she was beating it, technically pneumonia did her in) but while she was sick she developed a real passion for off the wall political commentary by Glenn Beck and the like. Her only news source was Fox. If she knew how to use her computer I'm sure she would have been a big fan of World Net Daily. I don't know why she was suddenly pulled to that type of tripe, but it always makes me sad that she spent the last year or so of her life frothing at the mouth about fantasy world politics.

In Canada we just put the elderly (any one 30 or older) on ice floes and push them out to sea with long poles, to swim with the polar bears. It saves a bundle on health care costs, which are only two thirds of US health care costs. This is called Caribbean Carnival and it's a big party in Toronto. It's almost as big and spectacular as the Annual Toronto Gay Pride Parade during which Christians are forced to gay marry

Canadian health care is so successful that the polar bear populations are said to be booming by climate change denialists although there are only about 25,000 of them in 14 different populations around the Arctic and nobody has the slightest clue what their population is or where they are 99% of the time any way.
