Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Joe Chavalia Kills Unarmed Indigent Single Mother In Her Own Bedroom! Why Was It Not Murder? BECAUSE HE WORKS FOR THE STATE!

Posted by Job on August 5, 2008

Please see link below on how the state’s power is ever increasing. And no, people, this is not about race. This is about the unchecked growth of state power and the total lack of accountability. Today, the state goes after the poor. Tomorrow, the state – and big business – will come after everybody else. Christians, what are you going to do when the anti – Christ state declares you its enemy and comes after you? Or are you so conformed to this world and its ways and so lukewarm in your witness and testimony through the life that you lead that the state will not consider you an enemy but rather a friend and hence will have no reason to come after you? 

By the way: make no mistake the state is able to get away with this only because this “drug raid” policy targets poor people. If these same tactics targeted the rich or even the upper class, such persons would not put up with it for a second. They would leave and take their ability to create wealth, businesses, and jobs (not to mention pay the taxes!) and go to some place where the possibility of a crime being committed in their home does not result in someone dead. Now be honest: if SWAT teams were busting into upscale rave parties with guns blazing or shooting embezzlers, tax cheats, and going after the MANY affluent drug users that we have in our society, you could imagine the outrage and calls for reform. How do I know this? Do any of you remember Randy Weaver? He was a fellow that decided that our government was illegitimate because it afforded equal rights to black people. There were other reasons, mind you, but make no mistake, Weaver was primarily motivated by his white separatism. Weaver also decided to acquire himself a huge stash of weapons, and to ILLEGALLY sell those weapons to his white separatist brethren. Well, it just so happened that Weaver sold a sawed off shotgun to a federal agent that he believed was a fellow traveler. What did this person want the weapon for? To kill a police officer, or maybe any black person that had the gall to be found in the area? Weaver didn’t know or care. In any event, the fellow quite predictably refused to respond to summons to court to stand trial for his crime. So, when the authorities came to arrest Weaver, a standoff and shootout ensued that resulted in the death of Weaver’s wife. 

Now this should come as no shock to anyone. Armed criminals tend to resist capture, and the result of this resistance often results in injury or death. Except that “conservatives”, the very same types of people that are now cheering the acquittal in this instance, rushed to Randy Weaver’s defense. The government action was “a setup.” The law that Weaver broke was “illegitimate because it infringes on our Second Amendment rights.” Weaver was “targeted because of his politically incorrect beliefs.” Rather than bringing it on herself for living with a criminal, Weaver’s wife – also shot while holding her child – was “murdered by the state.” Now the blogosphere did not exist back then, but talk radio and the conservative magazines ate it up and made Weaver a hero. He was feted on Capitol Hill, speaking before a congressional committee on the need of the ATF to change its tactics and be reformed as the personal star guest of the Republican Congress. He received a huge settlement from the government. And he never saw a day in jail for his original crime of trafficking in illegal weapons OR firing on the government officials that rightfully came to arrest him. 

So Weaver is a hero and victim of government aggression, while Wilson “deserved it” because of her immoral and illegal life choices. What is the difference in the eyes of a conservative? We all know: class, race, and culture. Well, it is precisely the sort of classism, racism, and cultural chauvinism that allows the power of the unjust anti – Christ state to grow by leaps and bounds. , as the very “big government watchdogs” that swung into action to defend a man who was trying to kill law enforcement officials (remember G. Gordon Liddy selling “ATF agent” crosshair targets?) fully support this action. Both Ms. Weaver and Tarika Wilson died after being shot by government agents while holding their children in their arms. The difference is that the former happened because her husband was shooting back! In the Wilson case, the only shots fired were by the state. It is also ever more ironic that so many of the very conservatives that wanted to monitor and curb state power in the Weaver instance now support the Patriot Act, FISA, and virtually everything the state claims that it needs or wants to fight the war on terror.

Who’s Afraid Of The Large Hadron Collider?

Posted by Job on June 30, 2008

I must admit: I am not. One of the things that fascinated me was how this potential doomsday device only cost $5.8 billion to build. That is like what George W. Bush’s corporate buddies steal in Iraq and Afghanistan in a typical week. 

Some fear debut of powerful atom-smasher

David Francis, a physicist on the collider’s huge ATLAS particle detector, smiled when asked whether he worried about black holes and hypothetical killer particles known as strangelets.

In rebutting doomsday scenarios, CERN scientists point out that cosmic rays have been bombarding the earth, and triggering collisions similar to those planned for the collider, since the solar system formed 4.5 billion years ago. And so far, Earth has survived. “The LHC is only going to reproduce what nature does every second, what it has been doing for billions of years,” said John Ellis, a British theoretical physicist at CERN.

The physicist Martin Rees has estimated the chance of an accelerator producing a global catastrophe at one in 50 million — long odds, to be sure, but about the same as winning some lotteries. (But what about, you know, a catastrophe that is not GLOBAL but just, well, citywide? Or what about a few inner city blocks like that terrible Keanu Reeves/Morgan Freeman movie “Cold Fusion”? Does that knock the odds down a bit from 1 in 50 million to 1 in 500,000? 1 in 50,000? Just kidding …)

Both may produce micro black holes, subatomic versions of cosmic black holes — collapsed stars whose gravity fields are so powerful that they can suck in planets and other stars. But micro black holes produced by cosmic ray collisions would likely be traveling so fast they would pass harmlessly through the earth. Micro black holes produced by a collider, the skeptics theorize, would move more slowly and might be trapped inside the earth’s gravitational field — and eventually threaten the planet. (I would be more concerned about the threat posed by slow moving manmade micro black holes if ever any evidence were produced that the FAST MOVING NATURAL micro black holes existed.)

As for strangelets, CERN scientists point out that they have never been proven to exist. (Like the theory of evolution?) They said that even if these particles formed inside the Collider they would quickly break down. (Like the theory of evolution breaks down? Another issue for another day.)

I have to admit: I have no problem building supercolliders. I am a 100% pro – basic science guy. I would rather spend $5.8 billion on basic science than on wars and “destroy the low income family structure” social programs. I know that supporting such is harmful to my libertarian principles, but I propose that had George H. W. Bush not killed a similar supercollider project because of a budget crunch THAT HE CREATED WHEN WE INVADED IRAQ THE FIRST TIME AND THE MONEY THAT WE USED TO PROP UP SADDAM HUSSEIN’S REGIME TO FIGHT A WAR WITH IRAN THAT KILLED ALMOST A MILLION PEOPLE (I suppose it isn’t very nice to talk about things like that!) we would be a lot further along in things like, oh, I don’t know, alternative and renewable energy technology, not to mention medical research. 

Each year the detectors will generate 15 petabytes of data, the equivalent of a stack of CDs 12 miles tall. The data will require a high speed global network of computers for analysis. Now THAT strikes me as more frightening than the large hadron collider. These subatomic particles that have never been proven to exist do not concern me. Global computer networks capable of tracking your every move do.

Wagner and others filed a lawsuit to halt operation of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, or RHIC, at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York state in 1999. The courts dismissed the suit. So … these fellows have cried wolf in the past, eh? Just like the media to use the “threat” of bosons, gluons, strange quarks, etc. to scare people while just making the REAL issue … the potential of global monitoring your movements, conversations, financial transactions, etc. a sidebar. Please note that Barack Obama has come out in support of new world order globalists that back FISA, which would allow the government to spy on your phone conversations (sorry for the ACLU link, but all of the “Christian” links that I found on FISA were from people who just loves themselves some “all Christians worship the same God” George W. Bush).

So I say “yes” to the large hadron collider but NO to FISA and the Patriot Act in general. After all, it won’t be the large hadron collider used to prevent those who refuse to worship the anti – Christ from buying and selling …
