Rules about Posting

I am unabashedly conservative- on most things. But what I truly enjoy is sound debate. This is a site for intellectual debate on important issues facing the world. I expect sound references, links & quotes that you can point to in order to back large assumptions or accusation.   If this cannot be provided, then I expect good critical reasoning to be the basis of your argument. This is not a site for simple attacks or mere name lobbing. If you call someone a liar, then you better be able to back it.  Opinions do not need backing as long as they don’t make large, ridiculous assertions.   I hold myself to very high standards when I write articles. I take nothing (except God) on faith. I link to original documents and use actual, traceable quotes. I use reliable news articles from reliable news agencies. I never use blogs to back my blog. I hold everyone on this site to the same high standard. The following rules will ensure that intelligent people with intelligent remarks can continue to do so without annoying heckling from the side lines. Anyone who violates these rules will get one warning. Then they are banned.

  • No disrespect allowed.
  • Contrary opinions do not count as disrespect. Opinions that make other people angry do not count as disrespect. Opinions on race do not count as disrespect. Opinions on gender, sexual orientation do not count as disrespect. I want this to be a taboo free environment where people can finally air their differences- in a respectful way. We are all adults. You know exactly what I mean here. I am a firm believer that any opinion can be delivered respectfully.  If you are disrepectful and ‘can’t see it’, I will not explain it to you.
  • If you use obscene language to voice your opinion on any of these issues, or any words that my 11 year old would find shocking, it will not be allowed.
  • If you are illogical or refuse to answer reasonable questions, you are banned- especially if these are questions concerning outlandish propositions you stated.  If you are deemed to be simply carping from the sidelines, you are banned.
  • No one may threaten anyone else.  Threats will be reported.
  • Discussions concerning the actual sex act are forbidden.

 I appreciate your interest in my conservative political blog and hope to engage in titillating dialog with you in the future!

    I am saddened by the hate that I have seen against you on your blog. I live in the Czech Republic where atheists ruled and when they had power, what hate you read was put into practice. Logic and reason is their battle cry but what you get is hate. Thank you for your suffering, it is a gift to God and a gift to us too. Merry Christmas

    Sorry Susan for using this channel but I could find no other. Tonight I replied to a disturbingly vile post from someone named Kim that posted on your facebook sight. My reply to him was:

    Thank you Kim for you input. You have clearly shown us the shadows of a disturbed mind. I loved the part where you stated “I suggest you reread the Bible with less hate in your soul.” Your whole statement reeked of hate. I will pray for you.

    I have been banned from your sight. I admit that my comment may have been a bit on the condescending side. I either offended you or violated your posting rules and for this I apologize.

    Thank you for your firm stance and hard work.
    God Bless You,
    Lee Star
    ps: I did pray for Kim.

      Lee, do you want a second chance? I would be happy to give you one. I just don’t like when readers attack one another. I also don’t like when Christians say, “I will pray for you” as a battering ram. You can pray- but you shouldn’t say you will pray for someone to imply how awful they are and how ‘holy’ you are. I don’t tend to react too well to that. I really wish to provide a nice place for Christians to gather! bless you and thank you for your apology! let me know if you want to post on the FB site! Susan

    I hope pedantic remarks don’t qualify as disrespect either because I’m going to nitpick a bit. ;)

    “Contrary opinions do not quality as disrespect. Opinions that make other people angry do not count as disrespect. Opinions on race do not count as disrespect. Opinions on gender, sexual orientation do not count as disrespect. I want this to be a taboo free environment where people can finally air their differences- in a respectful way. We are all adults.

    Might I suggest amending “quality” in the first sentence to either “qualify” or better yet, “count” since the word “count” would be congruous with the rest of the statements in the paragraph. Given the importance of the guidelines, I thought it might not be a bad idea to tidy them up a bit. :)

    You have a stomach a great deal stronger than most if you actually read over 1000 pages of Breiviks “Declaration.” My contribution here is this, did he actually do the shootings he is accused of? There was no mention of the type of weapon he used in the early articles I read, perhaps I missed it. Look at all the other “terrorist” shootings. There is always a “suspect” trotted out for public consumption either immediately or within just a few hours, with lots of emotional baggage and very few actual facts. In normal police proceedure this is not usual. All the “suspects” follow the same pattern and all are accused of the same thing, being loners who are socially maladjusted. LEO’s looking for someone to blame are naturally going to focus on this type of person. Also, they will tell you that every such incident brings out a host of kooks claiming responsibilty because they are mentally unwell and like the attention. Looks like they found one ready made and on the spot as it were. Lucky for them. I’m not saying he isn’t guilty you understand, just wondering about the whole scenario. It has become so generic it makes me wonder.

      Oh, he is guilty, alright. At first, due to the strange & unusual way the Norwegian government handled the press & information, I was suspicious too. But it looks like government control of the news is common for this socialist government. Breivik did these things. The manifesto couldn’t be created except by someone insane. It took YEARS to develop- this much is evident in the length, breadth & scope of the manifesto. This guy is very much like a Nazi.

        I don’t doubt for a moment he’s a loose screw. Did you see any pertinent info on the type of weapon, the amount of ammo, how he carried them both without attracting attention, where he did the shooting from, that sort of thing? He seems to have killed an awful lot of people. Doesn’t sound like a hand gun yet no mention was made of an assault type rifle.I haven’t researched this particular incident thoroughly enough I know. I’m just asking what was picked up by other average readers.

      • short little rebel says:

        yes, I did. You can go to his manifesto for all that. It is in book three, toward the end. He goes into excrutiating detail of how he built his bombs. As for weapon types, I will try to read up on that and get back to you. As for the weapons in general, I have read that he had both a hand gun and a shot gun. He used both. He would shoot people with the hand gun and then, sadly, shot them while they were on the ground with the rifle (in the head). He was a real executioner. How he planted the bombs is something I don’t know. It might be in his manifesto- as he truly enjoyed describing his thoughts & actions concerning death. It can leave a person quite nauseous.
