    LBJ also said “I’ll have those Ni##ers voting Democrat for the next 50 years.”
    Amazing how many liberal leaders are extreme racist tools.
    Look at the way Obama hates White people and All Patriotic Americans.

    Gays already have equality. They can marry any opposite sex person that is legal for any heterosexual. They just want the power to censor and silence any opposition to their addiction. Few gays are monogamous or have life long relationships. Thus, it is not likely they care about marriage other than financial gain. They just want to silence any dissension that is left. Thus, outlaw the Bible. Hate crimes speech was the final solution. Please read Romans 1:16-32 (the results of a culture rejecting the Gospels). Very historical and prophetic. Peace.

      You are right, they are like the Pigs in Animal Farm, All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. That is what they think. Everyone should bow down to their wishes.

    • Tzione

      Yes they do ALREADY have equality as Americans! If “rights” are all they’re after,they can have CIVIL unions….”Marriage” is a RELIGIOUS concept that the GOVERNMENT has NO business being involved in & they just don’t meet the qualifications for.They can “call” it marriage but it can never be a “marriage”.

      • LadyforLiberty

        OK Having Rights,but whatever happened to Responsibility???

    • WellNowDear

      The Animal Farm: All pigs are equal. Some pigs are just more equal than others. Sick, isn’t it?

  • CabaneStrut

    This is eloquently put. One might even accord it the title of ‘The Gospel according to Luke’. Spot on, brother!

    Therev is no such thing as “equality” in Nature. The dangerously foolish Enlightenment Era fallacies have derailed a functional social order. You may have heard the phrase, “You can drive Nature our with a pitchfork, but Nature always comes roaring back”. You are witnessing Natural Law exploding childish fantasies.

    I liked the comment of the Tower of Babel instead of the Mosque. Actually that would be ten steps up the decency and bearability ladder. I started this letter to say they were the same thing. But no way, as much as I know the left wing loons are destroying America. They have only been doing it in America for about 60 years. The moslems have been destroying the whole world for close on a thousand years. Richard the Lionheart tried to wipe them out in the year 1184.

      Just goes to show how stupid and backwards Muslims are. If they didn’t use our planes and ships to get around, they would still be walking! They plan to take over the world be f-ing. Go plan. Duh!

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      Actually, they started doing so in the 1600s, BEFORE this nation was a nation, in fact! The history you learned; and that I learned in school, is NOT the real history of the founding and intention of this nation; and the real history is a sickening eye-opener! Even our Founding Fathers’ intentions were less pure and honest than we were led to believe! I’m sure my ancestors who fought in every war for this nation including the Revolution,{ except WWI, when they were too young, too old, disabled or farming} are doing flip-flops in their graves, seeing the truth of what they were used to fight for; not what they believed they were fighting for; I know my sister and I, who also served are heartsick about it!

        This country is a sewer and the absolute worst place to be except for all the other places in the world. Our sewer is just not as filthy as all the rest and the excrement isn’t as deep.

        • Sandra Lee Smith

          Our “sewer” is a lot more filthy than you may believe; and we’ve been under Divine Judgment since 9/12/01 because of it.

  • S. D. Coburn

    Beautifully written. I especially loved this part — The American Dream is not wealth, success, and happiness. Many are born with that in this country or exert little effort to obtain it. No, the American Dream is found in the space between that equal opportunity and achieved success. It is the ability to make the journey, not the destination itself.


    • grinner

      Thanks Sandy, that’s what I was going to say. Haha…

  • tom cook

    Good column, especially your definition of the American dream at the conclusion–a sentence that deserves oft repeating. However you really take it squishy on the fags; look at these losers in one of their fag parades–they flaunt their depravity way past what might be considered acceptable behavior by any other tiny minority group(they are only 2-4% of the population so at most there are twelve million of them in the U.S., too many by far, but only about the same as illegal aliens).

      You shouldn’t call fags, fags. You are violating their SNIVEL RIGHTS!

  • disqus_44JbsFzgKV

    Most Americans fail to realize the difference between money and wealth. This is the failing of the left who see those $$$ being printed freely and NOT going to the poor. They changed that and now wealth is being flushed down the toilet. The $$$ remains but is becoming worthless (ie: lacking wealth).
    We will all be equal soon. Either on the other side or equally miserable.

    • LadyforLiberty

      I had a school pal, who was told by the teacher “You will never amount to much in life with that attitude!”
      He retired recently, turing over TWO businesses to his sons, a rich man!

      I told him “How can teachers get things so wrong….look at you!”
      He replied “School taught me one thing, if you work in life and know what you wanna do, you will succeed”! “Have another drink…Cigar?….
      He WORKED for a living, and the teacher spurred him on by his criticism, and he adopted an “I`ll show you Sir” outlook.
      Well, he did, but he worked hard on his own, and did NOT need an action group, or “Rights”, or special treatment, or the Law to be changed to make a way for him!
      He, like me, is a real Patriot, and we all get where we wanna go by our own effort, moral strength, and by making sure the government keep the hell outa our lives!
      Gays? They gotta have someone to cry to, when a chance remark “offends” them.
      Patriots work to make a life for themselves and their kin.
      Special Interest Groups, well, they get the Government to make a law so you & me get jailed if we “Offend their sensibilities”.
      Try working for a livin` guygals and stop expecting a handout!

      • leewacker

        You are spot on! My brother had several friends who were told the same thing by a teacher—one retired from the military as a colonel, and the other has several businesses—along with half-a dozen advanced degrees!

  • 1tymtrvlr

    I don’t feel equal, I am having to pay oppressive taxes to provide obama’s bro, hos, and illegal alien parasites a living. Now I have to listen to some braindead marxist p.o.s. try to convince me that johnny booboo’s 2 dads or 2 moms are a natural thing because snakes do it. God and Nature determines what is right and wrong, not a couple of queer federal judges, urinalists, politicians. EVERY society that allowed homosexuality regulate, and legislate met disastrous ends. Have you ever noticed how they always use images of females to push their perverted agenda? Start using a$$clown men swapping tongues on their literature and advertisements. Let’s see how far that gets them.
    Just because the marxists don’t believe in God, because He has tough standards doesn’t mean He doesn’t exist. Kind of like out of sight out of mind, He is watching, and He is also aware of all of those who profess they are Christians, but legislate against His laws to help pervert His creation.

    • Lady for Liberty

      No doubt the above is why Gays are not keen onChristianity.

  • cornbread01

    After serving our country, I worked for & finally retired from a very large telecommunications company & witnessed the unions & “crony-capitalists” ( fascist-communists) on behalf of liberal corporate board members as they befriended those in DC who’d pass legislation promoting more of this crap in the name of “fairness ,equality, multiculturalism & diversity” , when it really is about guaranteed revenue from government into their tills. Each & every middle class working citizen pays more & more for this mess as it becomes “overhead expenditures” if not downright regulatory costs & taxes, Not to mention the monstrosity of creating more & more entitlement minded wimps, who are ripe fodder for the world wide communist cannons & destroying the core of our Sovereign Republic.

    Dead on right hear, this is a tower on babel created by the lunatic left to totally confuse the hell out of any one trying to make some since out of what they are talking about, I don’t think the left knows it self what it is doing.

  • Gary

    Equality to liberal Democrat commies is achieved by government force. If their ideas are so great, why do they all have to be mandatory? Why do they also have to call anyone who questions them racist, bigot, Nazi, homophobic, misogynist, if their policies are so great? They can’t directly answer them because they know deep inside liberal policies have and always will fail. Look to cities like Detroit and states like New York and California for the end results

    • LadyforLiberty

      Why Gary? Because they have learned to feel ENTITLED to gettting their own way.
      They live in a liberal home, they don`t get taught right and Wrong, they get told fairy stories and believe the leftloon press about how they have “Rights”.
      When I was young DAD was the Law! Mom was the enforcer.
      Grandpa(the veteran) taught you how to shoot and reload, and how it was wrong to cuss!
      He just growled at us…didn`t ever raise his hand, but his stories were always good to listen to.
      We didn`t learn right from wrong from the newsreels, or tv.
      We got THAT from Family!!!
      Where in heavens name do these gay lefty activists get their ideas of morality from??

    I will share this with honest appreciation this morning with these comments:

    WOW…here is the reason that “I Love” to Read in the
    morning! Can you passionately embrace honesty, simplicity and truth from this excellent
    piece of journalism?

    Perhaps you too can define the accurate use of our English
    language as Intellectually Stimulating!

  • Lorraine E

    Change has happened and it is not for the better. Might is right. Whoever is the loudest and most angry wins. Honest and good people are oppressed because of the deeds of evil people. Justice has been replaced by injustice. Perversions and lies prevail and truth is cast aside. When a lie is repeated often enough it is accepted as the truth. Virtues have been forgotten. Our country has been blessed with God’s Grace but the day is coming very soon when He shall withdraw His Grace, especially in that our leaders have done all they can to eliminate Him from our culture, and on that day all hell is going to break loose in our country.

    • Beverly Smith Sheppard

      It’s obvious God has already withdrawn His hand of grace. I’d say around 9/11. Our country has been going down a very slippery slope ever since.

    We must understand the difference between the Negative Tolerance of
    Conservatives. And, the Positive Tolerance of Progressives.

    Conservative negative tolerance allows for the tolerance of disagreement and difference in opinions. We do not expect the world to think with “one collectivist mind.”

    On the other hand, Progressive positive tolerance mandates the only opinion
    that must be tolerated are the opinions that support the Progressive political agenda.
    There is no tolerance for disagreement. There must be a positive affirmation for all things Progressive and no tolerance for anything not Progressive. We must all embrace and love the lifestyles and social agendas promoted by the Progressive
    “political-media complex.” Any disagreement is to be treated as evidence of bigotry. In fact, the negative tolerance to Conservatives is the new definition of “Bigotry.” In this world-view, the Progressive definition of “bigotry and hate speech” are any stated opinions that differs from the Progressive political agenda.

    In this Progressive world-view tolerance for different opinions and wanting the freedom to hold a dissenting opinion from the Progressive agenda is “Bigotry.” Therefore, to Progressives the negative tolerance of Conservatives is bigotry.

    • LadyforLiberty

      Right on Pilgrim!! You are NOT alone in your thinking. Trouble is, Media push nonsense as news `cos that`s how they are trained.

      Well, looks like you and me (and the vast majority) were taught to THINK for OURSELVES. Which is why the liberals get so mad as we contradict their Socialist brainwashing!

      • pilgrimsjog

        The problem becomes once the regressive Progressives take control of the rationing of health care what is to stop Progressives from defining bigotry as an untreatable brain condition causing unsanctioned thoughts that presents a threat to collective mental health.

    Progressive academia is the knowledge construction center of modern society. Academia is generating new social concepts that are designed to influence a wide range of human activity. What does this mean? In all aspects of modern western
    civilization, there are two competing belief-systems, viewpoints or perspectives. Traditional western beliefs rooted in Christianity called modernism. And, the Progressive belief system rooted in Post-modernism. The Progressive, Post-modernism belief-system is being advanced by academia and Progressive mass media that is engaged in poststructuralism. Poststructuralism is designed to systematically deconstruct the modernist worldview and replace it with the post-modernist worldview. Is the public aware there is an agenda to systematically deconstruct the modern world by employing economic policies to deconstruct the modernist economy by overwhelming it with debt and the weigh to the welfare state in order to construct the post-modernist economic system?

    For example, the efforts of the environmental movement has nothing to do with saving the planet, but to use “global warming and saving the planet” as the rationales for implementing Progressive economic policies and regulations to systematically deconstruct our capitalist economy to construct a statist-socialist economy over the ashes. Obama is leading that agenda.

    Academia is the knowledge construction center of modern society. Academia is generating new theoretical concepts that are designed to influence a wide range of real-world practices in all aspects of human activity. What does this mean? In all aspects of modern human activities, there are usually two competing forms of theoretical belief-systems, viewpoints or perspectives. However, during this competition, mass media is used by Progressives to engage in poststructuralism, which is designed to systematically deconstruct the modernist worldview and replace the modernist worldview with the post-modernist worldview. If academia can be at the hub on the contest leading the agenda of the deconstruction of the modern world shouldn’t it also be the duty of academics to alert new students that this effort is taking place and how mass media can be used to promote this contest? Can the public economic policies that members of mass media are supporting and promoting be part of their effort to gain public support for their agenda? Is the public aware there is an agenda to systematically deconstruct the foundations that support the modern world based on Judeo-Christian beliefs into Post-modern, humanist beliefs?

    Obama wants to ‘share the wealth’ and yet from looking at what all our ‘poor’ people have it seems we already have been doing just that.

    • http://twistedmuser.com/ Twisted Muser

      You are wrong! Obama does not want to “share the wealth”! He wants to “share your wealth”!

    • leewacker

      it is the fact that just about every American has his own home, a car–maybe two–and have some very nice appliances and furniture!
      Foreigners think all of us are RICH, RICH, RICH beyond dreams!
      Nope! What they are seeing is DEBT, DEBT and more DEBT!
      But, many, in fact, the most of us get those debts paid off!
      We lived next door to a family whose soldier son married a German National. The girl moved to her in-laws house, and was amazed at the “wealth” she saw on our street. She would ask: “Do you own this house?” Told “yes,” she would ask about their furniture, car, etc. The answer to each question was “Yes,” and so she would ask about the neighbors on both sides of the street. Same questions, same answers. She then said she was amazed at how “rich” Americans were, but couldn’t understand why her father-in-law, the brother-in-law and her husband had to work, if all Americans were so rich they could afford such nice things!
      Come to think about it, I wonder if some of the illegals have that impression, that Americans are all so rich they don’t have to work, and therefore would welcome servants?

  • marineh2ominer

    Total equality , like the progressives other drumbeat of , world peace , will only be possible by the total elimination of human beings from the planet . That is precisely why they live in a fantasyland of non-reality . Unless , of course , the return of Christ brings his 1000 year reign of peace .

    Living in Az the article reminds me of the poor illegals trying to cross the border who get lost in the desert and use their cell phones to call for help. I live on Social security so cannot afford a cell phone or the monthly bill so how come the so called poor illegals have cell phones!

    Unfortunately, I think the 2012 election showed us that the scale has tipped in this country, and that the residents of the states with the largest number of electoral votes (blue) agree with Obama and want wealth redistribution. All we can do is pray and vote…in that order.

    Equality was never intended to imply “equal outcome”; rather it refers to the equal worth of each human life, in the view of our Creator; nothing more or less than that! But the lib dictionary has so distorted that meaning as to have lost it entirely!

  • lois

    This nation has turned into a pagan, humanist country. Multiculturalism is deadly. For the last 60 years it aggressively has gone downhill. The enemy within has tried to steal our country, our forefathers created/founded.

    Equality means what? Everyone having the same? People get what they work for, created.

    The U.S. was never meant to be a melting pot. God warned us there would be peoples that would try to steal from us. The enemy within opened our gates to every nation’s peoples, people we have nothing in common. God warned us. We need to STOP all legal and illegal immigration from third world countries.

    We need less government, more personal responsibility.

    Tolerance? Is that the buzz word for socially acceptable hate?
