The Debate

Since we human beings never stop squabbling, I sometimes feel like that old fellow in the picture above. However, I know the wars won’t end after I am gone. It just that I sometimes wish that my crusades would end. I suppose that’s why our Lord gave us a sense of humor. From time-to-time we all need a good laugh, and this line gave me one.

Correction…true socialism has never been tried….the best they could do was state capitalism. chuq


What is the appropriate response to that? Google “true socialism.” That will give you about 549,000 results (0.42 seconds). Even “true socialism has never been tried” will give you about 3,430 results (0.41 seconds). So, chuq’s (lobotero‘s) argument is a common one.

How did I respond?

What is going on in Washington DC? From the get-go, President Joe Biden’s foreign policy has been just plain weird. He tried to walk away from Afghanistan without even getting our people out. Now, instead of trying to work out a peaceful solution for the Ukrainian conflict with the leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin, Biden seems to be determined to run Putin out of office. Why such a crazy quest?

There is an old movie, Wag the Dog (1997) (plot), that the Liberal Democrat news media loves to bring up when we have a Republican president. Supposedly, Republican leaders are willing to risk starting a war to distract us from their incompetence.

Are Liberal Democrats and their news media allies willing to risk…

This is the second part of a two-part series. The subject is this comment below.

In Part 1, we went over the comments I left on lobotero‘s post. Here we consider the following.

What Is The Ethical Difference Between True Socialism and True Capitalism?

After I stopped responding to lobotero‘s replies, I wondered how others had answered lobotero‘s assertion. This is not my response, but here is a pretty good response. Here Jay Chappie answers the question in bold print.

Jay Chappie

If true Socialism has never been implemented, as many Socialists say, isn’t it a huge coincidence that all governments that tried to implement it failed?

I think what you really mean is complete socialism. A completely socialist society.

Unscrambling Net Zero Deceptions

PA Pundits International

By Dr. Jay Lehr~

Several states and a significant number of electric utilities have committed to decarbonization goals. Net zero emissions is the term most generally used when expressing these goals. Of course decarbonization is a totally false term. It actually means no carbon dioxide emissions, but as always, the term carbon is scarier as most folks relate it to soot. Actually to all the global warming alarmists, which today includes our entire new federal government, net zero emissions means:

All man made greenhouse gas emissions must be removed from the atmosphere by either eliminating their source or cleansing them from the atmosphere through reduction measures such as pumping them underground.

This definition means that greenhouse gas emissions are permitted as long as any emissions are removed from the atmosphere either naturally such as in forests, or carbon capture and sequestration. This concept of net-zero is dishonest because the…

ENTER SCOTUS: High Court Agrees To Hear Case Threatening Big Tech’s Section 230 Protections

PA Pundits International

By Joseph Vazquez ~

The leftist Big Tech overlords may finally face a day of reckoning as the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to the Section 230 law that governs how tech platforms moderate free speech.

SCOTUSblog tweeted Oct. 3 that SCOTUS granted a writ of certiorari to Gonzalez v. Google, “involving the scope of tech companies’ immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.”

USA Todaysummarized that the case will have “potentially enormous consequences for social media.” It is the “court’s first test of the broad immunity social media companies have enjoyed under a provision known as Section 230, part of the 1996 Communications Decency Act,” Bloomberg News stated.

Then came the typical liberal media “Republicans Pounce” angle from Bloomberg: “Section 230 has become a target of conservatives, including former President Donald Trump, who say it lets left-leaning tech…

Americans Often Hear About ‘Religious Extremism,’ But Rarely About ‘Extreme Secularism,’ Says Dennis Prager

PA Pundits International

By Gillian Richards ~

Americans often hear about “religious extremism,” but rarely hear about “extreme secularism,” commentator and radio host Dennis Prager said Monday night at an event launching his latest book.

“If you don’t fear God, you’ll fear everything else. We’ve raised wimps in secular society,” author and commentator Dennis Prager said Monday evening during an event held at the Museum of the Bible in Washington to promote his new book. Pictured: Prager speaks during the Turning Point High School Leadership Summit in Washington on July 24, 2018. (Photo: Michael Brochstein/SOPA Images/Getty Images)

Prager spoke about the themes of the book, “The Rational Bible: Deuteronomy,” in an interview format while seated on a stage at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.

The book, officially available Oct. 11 and part of Prager’s “Rational Bible” commentary series, serves as a defense of the fifth book of the…

Introduction To “Issue Storms”

PA Pundits International

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~

This is about a highly nonlinear information flow that I call an issue storm, which I discovered about 40 years ago but never wrote about because I was making lots of money knowing about it.

To begin with we need what I call looping. If A communicates to B and B replies to A that is a single loop. When a major issue arises in an organization, or community, or country, or globally, there can be a tremendous amount of looping.

Moreover, this body of looping will have a specific pattern, which will vary from case to case. Imagine if you could just look down in the dark and see all the email traffic as an issue breaks, grows and spreads, with each email as a streak of light. You could see the pattern, including how it changes over time.

I call such a body…

Wake-Up to God’s ORIGINAL INTENT When Voting

The Conservative-Patriot Christian Right

John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© October 5, 2022

Regardless of the Christian beginnings of this post, the bulk of the thoughts deal Antisemitism and the wonderment to why Jews might support modern perpetrators of Antisemitism in America.

I’m a supporter of Biblical Morality and Biblical Christianity. I was sad to discover that search engines (and not just Google) have become so warped by Secular Humanism they ignore the standard Biblical interpretation in favor of placing website toward the top justifying sin as normal. The homosexual sin was my first test search. Indeed, search engines appear to me to be so complicit to twisting Biblical wording to justify sin as normal rather than the ORIGINAL INTENT (boy that sounds familiar) of the CREATOR of ALL that exists. So here I focus on the CREATOR’s ORIGINAL INTENT rather than man-made word twisting justifying sin as acceptable. For Christians to…
