Come now, and let us reason together!

Many families follow the old etiquette teaching: Three things civilized people don’t talk about – Politics, Religion, and Money. How dull! Not to mention how dumb! Our home has never been like that. The Stephenson Family has always been both opinionated and vocal.

For brevity’s sake, this is continued. If it is your first time be sure to read the rest. Continue reading

The Social Justice Scam

Social Justice – the term gets tossed about a lot these days, but what does it actually mean in practice? Here are a couple of videos that will help you see it clearly. The first is a new release and the second is an audio put to video from over 35 years ago.

And here is the older one, in a humorous telling.

 

I guess some things never change.

Now Hear (READ) This

“How funny is it that so many professors labeled Tea Partiers as terrorists, while kissing the asses of real, bona fide terrorists? It’s not funny, really. But it’s the result of a simple equation: One is cool, and the other isn’t. Own a gun and keep it by your bed in your remote farmhouse? You’re a redneck. Purchase guns that end up killing a judge? Priceless. As long as you cling to cool, progressive beliefs that deem America evil, whatever you do is cool. And if you do it under a big fuzzy ‘fro? Even cooler. Hell, if you ‘fro is big enough, you could nuke an orphanage and still get tenure.”

This is a quote from a new book that I can’t WAIT to read. It’s Not Cool: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You by Greg Gutfield.

Germaine Greer

Freedom is fragile and must be protected. To sacrifice it, even as a temporary measure, is to betray it.

The Suicidal Blinders Of The Leftists

The below quotes come from award winning British journalist and best-selling author Melanie Phillips’ “Guardian Angel.” “Guardian Angel” tells the story of how Phillips started her career in British journalism on the Left in the late 1970s, only to become a stalwart Liberal culture warrior, as reflected in her positions on Islam, Israel, feminism, education, economics, environmentalism and a whole host of other issues that have earned her the wrath and contempt of European Leftists, particularly among media peers.

So begins a terrific article with excerpts from the book, the 10 quotes in the article are thought provoking and piercing in their pointed observation. Please read the entire article on The Blaze.

Do You Want To Be Rich?

Are you sure about your answer?

After all the Government seems determined to tax those who are doing a little better than others out of existence. And we already pay the lion’s share. Read this:

Top 10 Percent of Earners Paid 71 Percent of Federal Income Taxes

Top earners are the main target of tax increases, but the federal income tax system is already highly progressive. The top 10 percent of income earners paid 71 percent of all federal income taxes in 2010, though they earned only 45 percent of all income. The bottom 50 percent paid 2 percent of income taxes, but earned 12 percent of income.

See all the details in the full article:

http://www.heritage.org/federalbudget/top10-percent-income-earners

 

And why are they doing this? Is it to get more revenue? Not really, because the truth is the higher the tax rate is the LESS tax $$$$ is collected. Read about that in my article and the attached video here.
